She doesn't believe in love.
He doesn't believe in dating.
Celeste has worked her ass off to establish her freelance blog as a source of accurate crime news for the Baton Rouge area. Being a workaholic, focusing solely on her career, was her choice. Several years ago, she had a life-changing experience in a BDSM club that made it clear she is a submissive, but she believes her past makes embracing that path impossible. Then Sergeant Leland Keller walks into her life. He's the kind of Dom she's always feared and hoped she'd meet, and he recognizes her as what he wants as well. But she fights submission as much as she longs for it.
Leland always thought he was looking for a docile, sweet-natured sub, but Celeste captures his attention in a way no other submissive has. He can tell Celeste is aching for love and surrender. Having served in the military and now as a patrol sergeant in one of Baton Rouge's most dangerous districts, he doesn't shy from a challenge.
His job is to protect and serve, and he's not going to let her down.
