Basking in the afterglow of Lucent's intense affection leaves Elise's mind reeling. Is this the beginning of something more, or once the snow stops is he lost to her forever?
(A Cerys du Lys contemporary BDSM erotic romance novella)
Elise is living a fantasy. This entire weekend has been surreal.
Unfortunately dreams and fantasies inevitably end. With the winter blizzard nearing completion, she knows the real world holds a bitter reawakening for her soon enough.
Lucent Storme remains an enigma despite everything they've experienced. Elise is fascinated by him, allured by his tender care clashing against his decadent authority. He likes her, too--he must--except he hides behind his dominance, using it as an emotional mask. Is he afraid he'll hurt or upset her, or is there more to his aloof capriciousness?
It hurts, but Elise knows Lucent will leave once they escape from the library. Her only hope is that she can convince him to return. After succumbing to His Absolute Temptation, she's determined to beguile him into succumbing to her, too.
(This enticing contemporary BDSM erotic romance novella of domination and submission is ~21,100 words in length)
The Billionaire's Paradigm series currently also contains His Absolute Obsession (#1), His Absolute Attraction (#2), and His Absolute Compulsion (#3), all of which are now available in the Kindle Store!

I needed to remind myself that I still didn't know everything about him, and this was all so sudden and fast, but I did want to know. I hoped to know in the future.
"I'll apologize if I hurt you," he said. "I accept that concession and agree to it wholeheartedly, but--" Pushing me onto my back, he rolled atop me, pressing me against the ground with the entirety of his body. "I'll spank you whenever I like, Miss Tanner. What do you think of that?"
I gulped. Well, what did I think? I thought he could do it right now if he liked, but it seemed more than a little difficult if we stayed in this position. That sounded like a bad thing to say, though. Topping from the bottom, right? Lucent didn't sound angry about it, but if I wanted to let him control me, I needed to let him do it, too.
Instead, I nodded fast.
"Perhaps I'll spank you now," he said with a growl.
I nodded faster.
"I won't, though. You'd like that too much and I have no reason to do it at the moment."
I stopped nodding.
"Though, hm." His hand slid down my side to my skirt, to the hem, and... "Perhaps..."
