Title: Trading Hearts: Boxed Set
Published: 29th August 2016
Author: Saskia Walker
In her master’s arms she becomes pleasure incarnate… Naomi Kildare, a young Scottish fashion designer, travels to London to meet a renowned fashion buyer, but when the buyer is called away she meets Lucas Eaglestone instead.
Lucas is tall, dark, and masterful – and he wants Naomi. He is a direct man, and he asks Naomi to surrender to him, totally. Lucas quickly unveils Naomi’s true nature and at his hands she experiences sexual pleasures beyond her wildest dreams. She is enthralled by his physical and emotional claim on her, but she isn’t willing to sell her own dreams in exchange for a decadent life as his willing submissive.
Lucas wants Naomi more than anything and he would pull the stars from the sky for her if she would agree to accept them. He vows to win her, but first he has to make some big changes to prove to her that their Dom/sub symbiosis is precious and worth fighting for. Together they could be the perfect match but trading hearts is never that simple.
Goes down as another off my 2017 Bookworm Bingo Challenge – A trilogy (The Buyer, The Seller and The Deal). Three for the price of one and just getting hotter the further you go, so hold on for a fun ride.
Naomi is in fashion and has a bespoke clothing design shop in Edinburgh. To get her store more exposure she needs the help of an advertiser so heads on down to London to see the buyer Georgio at Eaglestone Agency to see if they would be interested in helping her build her companies brand. A family matter seems to keep Georgio away but when a certain mystery man in reception, one she can’t take her eyes off, steps in to hear her pitch things start to look up. Takes her a while before she realizes that this mystery man is none other than the head of the company she went to see, Lucas Eaglestone. Things might just start to get complicated.
One look and you can see the chemistry between them, which only builds the longer the meeting progresses. Seems its not just Naomi who is entranced by his presence, as she is the first person to make him think twice about in a long time. She can almost feel the dominance coming off him with how he acts around her. What she thought might scare her off only gets her more excited the longer the meeting goes. Which is then making her second guess herself as she is meant to have her business head on not her libido one. After the meeting he insists on taking her to dinner. She knows the minute she accepts where it will end but she can’t seem to deny him, or herself, as she knows it will be good. And good it is but in a completely new way for her. He might have been able to see her willingness to submit but it’s still raw and intense for her. He likes to have control in all things but can sometimes take it a step too far when trying to mix business and pleasure together.
So thinking his contract has an ulterior motive Naomi high tails it back to Edinburgh thinking to never see Lucas again. Gets a shock when she finds him at her shop door then. Planes trump trains every time it seems. He is willing to do whatever it takes to make her see he wants her alone. He’s going to need to pull out a few stops when his ex Clara makes an appearance because she sure knows how to push peoples buttons.
Seems Naomi can’t catch a break when it comes to Lucas’ ex Clara. Always wanting to make a scene no matter what. The more time she spends with him the more she submits to his will and its fear of losing herself and her goal that makes her want to pull back. Well she might say she wants to leave when things get heated but Lucas can read her so well that he always knows what she really wants. Great at giving it to her too! In the bedroom department – or wherever they might happen to be when horny – they work but outside is where the issues arise. If he wants to keep her he needs to stop trying to control everything and communicate. Otherwise he might lose her forever.
