Today we have an exclusive excerpt and giveaway from BIND ME BEFORE YOU GO by Harper Kincaid! Make sure you check it out!
A sexy category romance from Entangled's Brazen imprint...
His heart is bound tighter than the bondage he craves...
Determined to put her past behind her, Cassidy Peyton moves to the Big Apple. But New York has a few dark secrets of its own, including Serve, an exclusive BDSM club. It's a place she isn't sure she's ready for, until she sees him watching her. Hot. Intent. Knowing. With eyes that leave her stomach tied in knots, because the loneliness he's trying to hide matches her own.
Security expert David Cavill has more secrets than any man should. Secrets that forever shut down any possibility of love, marriage, or family. Yet Cassidy draws him in, an intoxicating combination of strength, candor, and sensuality that David can't resist. But as their bond deepens, Cassidy must decide if she can love a man whose heart is bound tighter than the form of bondage he craves...
Cassidy raised her eyebrows. “A BDSM club? Really? How much more Fifty-Shades-of-Grey-frustrated-housewife can you get? What’s this place called, anyway?”
Allison lips twitched, looking as if she was trying to suppress another one of her smirks. “The club’s called Serve.”
Cassidy pretended to pick her jaw off the floor. “You’re kidding.”
Her roommate straightened her spine and jutted her chin out. “And I thought you were going to be a cool roommate.” She poked her finger at Cassidy. “You are truly and totally the dullest knife in the butcher block. No fun at all.”
“I am fun!” Cassidy protested. And she was...wasn’t she? “Well, okay, I’m trying to be more fun.”
But these days, fun equaled disappointment. That said, she was human, and lately the loneliness had gotten so thick it clogged her throat at the most inconvenient moments. She thought she’d be used to the feeling by now.
Back when she was in college she’d had relationships and, looking back, she realized she’d always morphed herself into whatever the boyfriend of the moment wanted. The guy wanted vivacious and lively? That’s what she delivered. He was into the shy, bookish type? Well, then hanging at the library was her new favorite pastime. Anything to prevent being abandoned again.
The irony was that the more she’d tried, the further away they’d drifted from her. It wasn’t until she was in grad school that she’d become aware of her pattern. She’d never even asked herself if they were enough for her. None of them had the first clue how to curl her toes. Or challenge her mind. Or move her soul. Worse, she’d gone all those years not
realizing any of that stuff ought to be important. Not just to them, but to herself.
A woman with the heart of a revolutionary,
The mind of a pragmatist,
And the inappropriate humor of your tipsy BFF...
Born in California and raised in South Florida, I've moved around like a gypsy with a bounty on my head ever since. Along the way, I've worked as a community organizer, a professional matchmaker, an art teacher, a popular blogger, and a crisis counselor (to name a few). All the while, longing to have the guts and follow-through to do what I really wanted: to write and become a published author. That wish has finally come true and I am tickled pink with glitter over this good piece of fortune.
What else? Hmm...I love indie, lo-fi, complaint rock played on vinyl, wearing black because it's slimming, the theater, well-informed optimism, happy endings (both kinds),and making those close to me laugh 'til they snort. I'm a self-admitted change junkie, loving new experiences and places, but have now happily settled in the cutest lil' town, Vienna, Virginia. I totally love hearing from readers so stalk me via social media or email me at HarperKincaid26@gmail.com!
