After her own engagement goes to hell, workaholic Jessica Talbot dreads her friend’s bachelorette party at a dude ranch in Nowheresville, Texas. But the outlook for the weekend brightens when Deacon Dumen picks her up at the airport. The sexy cowboy awakens every dormant sexual fantasy with nothing more than a friendly smile and a handshake.
Ex-Air Force Pararescueman Deke Dumen doesn’t know what to make of the sexy yet reserved brunette who breaks through the walls he built after an injury ended his career and a divorce soured him on relationships. As a guest at his family’s ranch Jessie is off limits, the Dom in him rebels at the restriction, even as he realizes his penchant for control in the bedroom would likely scare the holy hell out of her.
When Jessie shocks Deke by asking for exactly what he’s been craving, he’s ready to break the rules and introduce her to his own brand of dominance. Her willing surrender rocks them both to the core. But once the weekend’s over, they must decide if it was just a wild fling or the start of something more.
Deacon’s Touch is a luscious, erotic story with a sexy cowboy and shy stock broker who discover that love can conquer all. While this is a book with BDSM elements, it is very mild. Ms. Croix’s characters definitely have chemistry, with the hero as an alpha male and the heroine as an undiscovered submissive. The sex scenes are steamy and the plot is believable, however I wasn’t sure how the bachelorette picked a dude ranch as her bachelorette party venue. Overall, an enjoyable read.
