Justin Sinclair fell in love with Carrie the first time he saw her. But he just couldn’t date the boss’s daughter, not without her father’s approval. Justin works hard to get that approval - when Mr. Langdon dies, he stipulates in his will that Carrie must marry Justin to get her money or wait 4 years. Now all Justin has to do is convince Carrie.

Carrie Langdon is too cerebral for her own good. Too brainy, too independent, but completely average and forgettable. She knows she is nothing special - so why does Justin want to marry her? She is nowhere near his league. He is treating this forced marriage waaaay too casually, and, darn it, not that she planned on marrying, but if she is going to, it is going to be for love!

Would you marry a man you barely knew to collect your inheritance? One that you are attracted to, but is so handsome and put together that you felt un-kept in his presence? What if he confides that he likes to dominate woman in the bedroom? What is a smart girl like Carrie to do? Carrie knows she should end this farce as soon as possible, but Justin seems determined to go through with the wedding. And she has to admit that the more she gets to know him, the stronger the connection is between them. Can she learn to love, honor and obey Justin?

This is a very sexy, but very sweet story! I love alpha men who know what they want and go after it…and Justin isn’t above manipulation to get what he wants. While this novella was short, it was a well-put-together story. I appreciated the struggle Carrie went through trying to fight her attraction to Justin, and the tenderness Justin displayed while dominating Carrie. Justin’s idea of domination had me squirming (but in a good way - wink!). The sparks flew from the first page and didn’t let up! I loved every second of it! Warning for the faint of heart, there is bondage, light spanking, and anal sex in this novella.
