Theirs to Cherish

     Callie Ward felt like she had been running and hiding all her life. In reality, it had only been nine years. Since she was the only suspect, at the tender of age of 16, in the double homicide of her billionaire father and younger sister, technically she had been running her entire adult life. Then she found a safe haven at Dominion, the BDSM club run by Mitchell Thorpe, and settled into the lifestyle of a sub. Thorpe allowed her to live at the club and the secluded lifestyle of its members afforded her the anonymity she needed to stay alive from the bounty hunters and FBI looking for her. Thorpe protected her and disciplined her when she needed it--something she had always craved, but he didn’t claim her as his sub.
     Thorpe saw the submissive in Callie the first time he set eyes on her, but knew she could never be his. He would always take care of her, protect her from the bad guys and spank her behind, but he couldn’t claim her. He was too old for her, and knew she needed someone who could give her what he, in his damaged state, could not. Oh, he was a good Dom, just not the one for someone as fragile as Callie. After her first two years at Dominion, he had discovered that she was on the run, but that didn’t matter. She was his, in his head, and no one would take her away from him. Then Sean Fitzpatrick came into the club, took one look at Callie and she at him, and promptly put his collar on her.
     Sean Fitzpatrick was not whom he seemed, but the two things that were true about him were that he was a real Dom and that he cared deeply for Callie. His style of dominance was different from Thorpe’s; he was gentler and used more seductive methods, but was still what Callie needed.
     Theirs to Cherish is exactly as the title suggests: Two men in love, both Doms, and one submissive woman on the run. Shayla Black delves into the rules, regulations and emotional ties of BDSM while writing a love story that will tug at the reader’s heartstrings. Callie is a frustrating heroine with her inability to trust, although her reasoning is completely understandable, and Thorpe is a frustrating Dom with his emotional baggage. Combined with the totally gorgeous Scot, Sean Fitzpatrick, this story will be hard to put down, and the reader will think Callie is a very lucky woman.

One single favor and birthday party has changed his life. Now he has to figure out how to make this woman want him as much as he wants her.

She wanted to have more than just this night, but did not want to feel owned by him…or would that be so bad?

     After a great birthday party, then wild sex with Hunter, what is left?  Well, how about a Vegas wedding and a killer after Kata.
