Publisher: Romance Unbound Publishing Date published: April 2010 ISBN: 978-1452817736 Contemporary BDSM Erotic Romance Paperback Reviewed by Dawn Obtained by Author Author Kate Alexander is stuck in writer’s block for her next book and when she decides to go to a BDSM weekend to get her creative juices flowing, so to speak, she ends up with so much more than even she expected. Her darkest desires come forth with shattering results that has Kate running away scared from the feelings and intenseness of it all. Can Chase find Kate and see if he can show her what the HEART OF SUBMISSION is really or will Kate walk away from something that will essentially open her heart to the power of submission? Claire Thompson does it again in HEART OF SUBMISSION. Sexy, sinful and emotional, Ms. Thompson delivers an erotic romance set in the world of D/s and shows the reader a world full of power, love and trust all rolled up within the pages. This is an author who really knows her subject (BDSM) and delivers it in a story that will captivate the reader from the beginning to the end. Each time you read one of this fabulous author’s books, you get a sense of her love for this subject and her know-how as well. I can honestly say this is an author who really delivers a story that grabs your heart and never lets go. In HEART OF SUBMISSION, we meet Kate Alexander, a successful novelist who has hit writers block for her current book. Determined to see if she can get her muse to start working again, she signs up for a BDSM weekend and finds herself under the spell of charismatic Master John, who promises to bring her dark desires out in the open. What happens next has Kate racing home, scared to death and eager to put it all behind her. Except she never anticipates Chase to want to try to heal her heart and her mind as he tries to show her what the power of domination is all about-love, trust and desire. Chase Saunders is a bondage master and tries to stay away from Kate after that disastrous weekend. But fate hits them both again when they find themselves falling for one another. Can Chase show Kate what BDSM is all about? I have to admit, Claire Thompson is one of my favorite authors in the BDSM genre. She pens emotionally rich stories that are sexy and erotic. The perfect combination in my mind for this genre. The characters are multi-dimensional and very likable. You can really relate to them and I began to root for both Chase and Kate to finally give into their feelings during the course of HEART OF SUBMISSION. The secondary characters kept the story flowing smoothly. HEART OF SUBMISSION is an emotional story first and foremost, one that will tug at your heartstrings and second, get your blood pumping. Highly erotic, this is a story that will keep you reading until the last page is read and then jumping your significant other to cool down. Claire Thompson delivers another highly charged story that will stay with you long after the last page is read. I look forward to more of this author’s books in the future and if you enjoy a heartfelt story filled with amazing characters amid the BDSM world, then grab HEART OF SUBMISSION. It is one I plan to read again in the future. This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
