eBook Description: 'The Retreat' by Portia Da Costa: Ben Chambers is the perfect boyfriend, the perfect lover, the perfect man. Sarah adores him, but she knows that despite the deliciousness of their lovemaking, their shared interests, and the fun they have together, there's a certain special something missing in their relationship. And then, arriving for a hedonistic weekend of luxury at an English country house hotel, something happens that changes everything between them. A momentary, inconsequential pat on the bottom opens the door to a breathtaking world of daring and transgressive sexual pleasure ... and forges a bond that's both profoundly physical and a melding of their souls. 'S&M 101' by Sierra Cartwright: Julia Landon is not just bored, but out of her skull, mind-numbingly, someone-please-save-her bored. And she thinks that Dom Trevor Kendall should save her. When the attractive woman tells him she wants a spanking, Trevor looks at her in a whole new light. How had he missed her submissive tendencies? Trevor is more than serious about a D/s, to him, it's not a game. And he takes the curious sub to the limits of her endurance. For Julia, nothing will ever be the same now that S&M 101 is in session. 'Getaway Girl' by Lisabet Sarai All that Peg wants is a break, a bit of adventure, a relief from her mundane existence in the bucolic but boring Yorkshire hamlet of Kirkby Malzeard. When dashing, sophisticated journalist Lionel Hayes saunters into the pub where she's tending bar, Peg suspects that he was just the sort of man to fulfill her fantasies of escape. The seductive Lionel, however, is not what he seems. Before she knows it, Peg is a hostage, roped and gagged, speeding away from the scene of a daring crime. Lionel is armed and dangerous, but somehow Peg still wants him--regardless of the consequences. 'All Roads Lead to Ripon' by Barbara Huffert Sometimes it pays to revisit the past. Jane runs from a smothering ex who won't take no for an answer right into the last thing she's looking for--a mysterious stranger who appears wherever she is, watching her. Simon knows they're meant for each other the first time he sees her. Why she can't just do as he says and accept that is almost beyond him. Can some help from an interested observer be what they need to have a forever together? 'Kit and Mouse' by Dakota Rebel Kit is a vampire who had been planning on a quiet evening out at the local pub. But that plan becomes null when Mouse walks in. As soon as Kit meets him she knows that this quiet, shy man is not really what he seems. She instantly knows that she has to have him. Mouse plays into her hands perfectly, agreeing to accompany her home. But Kit is in for quite a surprise when the nervous veneer fades and this mortal becomes the demanding and dominating man Kit never realised she had been needing. 'Bound by Love' by Cassidy Ryan For two years Rhys has had a casual D/s relationship with Draven. It was never supposed to be anything more than an arrangement; a way for Rhys to occasionally indulge his submissive side. Draven made it very clear at the outset that he was not looking for forever, and Rhys was happy to accept this. But somewhere along the line he fell in love. Now he is forced to keep his real feelings for Draven a secret. Will the truth drive Draven away?

"Are you all right, Sarah?" he asked, his voice soft and powerful in her ear.
Was she all right?
She supposed she must be, but in the space of an instant she just couldn't stop shaking.
Sarah's heart fluttered and raced as she advanced into the spacious room. It was almost as if she'd just entered some kind of arena, before a huge crowd, with an ordeal ahead of her. Which was stupid, really, because this was the most luxurious and beautiful bedroom that she was ever likely to stay in. The Retreat was an exclusive country house hotel, a heritage listed building and five stars to boot, so it was about as far from a horrible ordeal as it was possible to get to stay here.
But it wasn't the original beams, the open fireplace, or even the huge bed with its brass head and foot rails and traditional English chintz bed linen that had caught her breath, and made her pulse race ... it was a simple, almost inconsequential thing that had just happened in passing that had made her gasp.
As they'd entered the room, Ben had tapped her oh so lightly on the bottom to encourage her forward.
It should have been nothing. It was nothing. Just a harmless, affectionate gesture from a man she really, really, really liked, and possibly more than liked. Something that by rights she should barely even have noticed.
But the tiny gesture, over so fleetingly, had almost pole-axed her. She was still trembling and she'd broken out into a sweat.
It was as if the world had just changed, and she'd changed with it, irrevocably.
"How do you like it then?" Ben's hand settled on her waist as she stood looking around, not really seeing or appreciating the lovely room or the breath-catching view from the window, of the early evening sunset gilding the park outside. The porter was waiting just behind them, and she fought for composure, hoping he couldn't tell she'd suddenly gone slightly mad, or work out why her face was suddenly bright pink and blushing furiously.
Get a grip, woman!
"It's gorgeous ... I really like it. I love the chintz and the furniture and the view ... it's all so ... um ... old English."
I'm babbling, she thought, trying to focus on the traditional furnishings and the gentle scent of cottage garden potpourri that filled the air.
She turned, hardly daring to look at him. Had he felt the change too? It had been so huge it couldn't just be restricted to her, surely?
Ben was studying her, as he so often did. His warm brown eyes were mild, yet intent and full of secrets. If he'd sensed the turmoil inside her, he wasn't giving any indication. But then, he was the sort of man who gave very little away at the best of times. He was so composed, so contained, always in control.
"I'm glad you like it. I hoped you would. This is one of my favourite places in all the world." Favouring her with a slight smile, he turned away to deal with the porter and their luggage.
Don't you feel anything? she demanded silently, watching and admiring and wanting him, as she always did.
