Mia doesn’t believe in happily-ever-after. She’s spent her whole life fighting the pain of overly-sensitive skin and has never known the joy of being touched in a way that brings pleasure instead of pain. When a mysterious woman suggests her son might be the key to breaking Mia’s curse, it sounds far too crazy to be real—especially when she finds out he’s a renowned Dom in an exclusive, members-only club. But Mia is desperate enough to try anything…
Alexei knows there’s no such thing as happily-ever-after. He’s a child of the streets, rescued by a brothel queen, and the last thing he needs is another suburban princess getting in his way. Bondage is his lifestyle choice. Pain is his business. He wouldn’t know what to do with a woman who likes it subtle. What is his adoptive mother thinking, to bring an innocent like Mia into the dark heart of their infamous Club Plaisir?
