Auctioned to the Honorable Dom By Doris O'Connor

 A drunken dare sees Laura Anderson sign up for the Club Spectrum Auctions. A night of kinky sex with a real Dom is just what she needs. It was never meant to be with Slade Douglas, the only man she's ever loved. The man who left her standing at her parent's grave, and fled the country without an explanation.

Fifteen years her senior, Slade had thought her too fragile and innocent for the lifestyle then, and he made a promise to her brother to leave her alone. This time he cannot walk away, especially as Laura is not the innocent girl he remembers. She has grown into a beautiful woman, willing and able to gift him with her submission, and their chemistry cannot be denied.

As he explores her boundaries and pushes her further than she has ever been taken before, Laura flies, but their painful past may prove one obstacle too many.

There's only one thing Slade can do…

Well I have to say, for how short this story was I was not disappointed in the slightest with it! The story as a whole kept my attention and didn’t leave me wanting for anything else.
The characters were extremely well written in my opinion. It was very easy to connect with Laura and Slade. The chemistry between the two of them was so obvious, that I was left hoping that Slade would take the lunge and give Laura what she wanted, and needed.
I even enjoyed that the author had made Mike the way that he was. I thought it was really smart of her to add a character that didn’t really understand the club, and the relationships that happen between the members. And while she could have made him even worse than he was, I think she did a great balance between him having his personal feelings towards it, and being offensive towards people in those types of relationship.
Overall, I did enjoy this story and I will be sure to read more from this author in the future!

Well, well, well…who doesn’t want to be sold to a hot guy?  A hot, dominate, alpha guy?  Ok, maybe not truly, but it’s a fun fantasy, eh?

Laura decides on a whim to sign herself up to be offered up at the Club Spectrum Auctions.   She feels like an exciting night with a dom is what she needs to fulfill her dirty and dark fantasies.  What she doesn’t expect is to be bought by Slade, a man with whom she has a past; the only man she’s ever loved who left her with no explanation, never to be heard from again.

This was a short but pretty exciting read.  It’s a BDSM read, and if you’re into that kind of thing, it’s pretty hot.  What’s nice about this story is that it seems to balance the romance with the BDSM of the story, which is sometimes what books of this genre fail to do.

For a short story, it also really gives you a good sense of the characters and their struggles.  Often, short reads leave me wanting more in that department, but this author really manages to convey the emotions of each character and you understand their motivations and mistakes.  It’s a well done and very sexy story. 4 stars.

Glutton for punishment would be a good description for Doris... at least that's what she hears on an almost daily basis when people find out that she has a brood of nine children, ranging from adult to toddler and lives happily in a far too small house, cluttered with children, pets, dust bunnies, and one very understanding and supportive husband. Domestic goddess she is not.

There is always something better to do after all, like working on the latest manuscript and trying not to scare the locals even more than usual by talking out loud to the voices in her head. Her characters tend to be pretty insistent to get their stories told, and you will find Doris burning the midnight oil on a regular basis. Only time to get any peace and quiet and besides, sleep is for wimps.

She likes to spin sensual, sassy, and sexy tales involving alpha heroes to die for, and heroines who give as good as they get. From contemporary to paranormal, BDSM to F/F, and Ménage, haunting love stories are guaranteed.
