Sara Hudson doesn't remember her own name – or anything else about her life. When Derek Clayton rescues her from a deserted highway, Sara finds she can’t say no to the sexy stranger. Lost from all she knows, Sara becomes the submissive to Derek’s dominance. Although she doesn’t understand why she yields to his demands, she can’t deny the blazing passion for the man who seems to know exactly how to satisfy her needs.
The only thing Derek Clayton has more of than secrets is money. He offers Sara help with one goal in mind – to keep her in the dark until he can work out the events that left her stranded without a memory. Can they give up the constraints of the past to find their happy ending or will his secrets and past love threaten their future?
Through most of this book I was scared for Sara. She was lost, had no idea who or where she was. She was trusting a man that she didn't know, staying in his home, having sex with him. His housekeeper is unfriendly and Sara wonders why. Sara starts to feel a connection with this man, Derek, and wonders if she knows him, though he denies that she does.
After a few days, Sara overhears information about her past. Once she is able to put the pieces of her life back together she has to make a decision.
At first, I was angry with Derek for having sex with Sara while she was so vulnerable. I really felt like he was taking advantage of her. By the end of the story, I changed my mind. You will have to read it to understand what I mean. 4 out of 5!
