My sweet, sexy Penny has a dark side. Just like me.
I will have her. And then I will lose her, and suffer a lifetime of regret.
Rampage. Everyone loves him. He is Redemption’s top heavyweight fighter and the biggest gossip in the gym. But he isn’t the teddy bear everyone thinks he is. He’s hiding a dark secret—and he hates himself for it.
Twice a week, Rampage transforms into Master Jack, a notorious dom only the most hard-core submissives will play with. How can he—a Southern gentleman, bred to respect and protect women—want to dominate them?
But Penny Worthington wants him. Beneath her pearls, kitten heels, and prim British exterior beats a tortured heart…Master Jack is the only one who can set her free.

Praise for Sarah Castille’s Redemption series:
“Emotionally charged, amazingly sexy, and flat out fantastic.”—Fresh Fiction for Full Contact
“Powerful. Gritty. And sexy beyond belief. Sarah is a true master!”—Opal Carew, New York Times bestselling author of His to Claim
Returning to MMA training center Redemption, Castille plays with contrasting personality traits as one of the gym's most cheerful and popular fighters, Jack "Rampage" Caldwell, hides his taste for sexual sadism. He's convinced no one will accept him, particularly now that he's joined the professional circuit. After undergoing a massive makeover, Rampage catches the attention of prim legal assistant Penny Worthington, who escaped the U.K. to start her life over in Oakland following a destructive relationship. Like Rampage, she keeps her kinky urges a secret, but when he discovers her tolerance for pain, they ease into a dominant/submissive relationship. As always, Castille never sacrifices character building for sex, and there is ample time for Penny and Jack to earn mutual trust before they get intimate. However, their kink scenes are markedly harsher than in Castille's earlier light-BDSM Redemption contemporaries. Familiar gym members and side characters pop up frequently, though fans will wish for more of Makayla and Torment, the pair who started it all.
