Despite having to always look over her shoulder in fear of her abusive, stalker ex-husband, dance instructor Deirdre Clarke is working hard to put the past behind her and start a new life.
When she finds herself falling in love with her new landlord, Josh Tyler, Deirdre is determined not to allow her emotions to rule her head. But Josh is just as determined to break through the wall Deirdre has erected around her heart.
Ms. Thomas is an exceptional writer, showing a stunning ability to juxtapose the elements of traditional romance with those of not so traditional BDSM, and make them both mesh in a seamless and sensual way that is both appealing, and far from gratuitous or offending. For anyone wary of the typical hardcore BDSM novel, this is the perfect book to read as the love scenes are well-written, sensual and not graphic, yet frequent enough to satisfy most appetites. I found the dialogue refreshing, eloquent rather than trite, and the writing itself fluid and lyrical.
Contrary to what one would think, making D/s a predominant element (no pun intended) to a story does not prevent it from having a great plot as well. Deadly Secrets is multi-layered, with complex main characters and entertaining secondary characters that add to what can only be described as a thrilling storyline, and make this a book that needs to be read. There are many twists and turns to Deadly Secrets, more than enough to keep this fascinated reader riveted to the very end and, happily, I can say I truly enjoyed the journey to that final page.
