She hopes that the carefully worded agreement she writes up will keep her relationship with the Dominant she will interview strictly professional.
Then 'Master D' - Drake Morgan - walks into the interview and Kate is mortified for not only is he gorgeous, he's the son of her father's best and oldest friend…
