Sam is a naïve young man who arrives in Hollywood to escape his brutal father. When the older, sophisticated Aaron rescues him, Sam discovers what it means to fully surrender himself to another.
Eighteen year-old Sam Cunningham is used to living with lots of secrets. He’s had to hide his true nature his entire life or else incur the wrath of his strict and abusive father. When he’s faced with a horrible ultimatum, he flees to Hollywood where he hopes he can escape the fate his father has planned for him.
Aaron Rubenstein is a wealthy and sophisticated man who loses himself in painting portraits of bound men to help stave off his loneliness and despair. Unable to find a lasting connection with anyone, he’s had to resort to paying lovers not only for their affections, but to be allowed to indulge in his darker passions. Aaron’s only respite is his nights at the Hampton Road sadomasochism club where he’s a respected Dominant.
Naïve and inexperienced in the ways men can please one another, Sam takes a job at a bathhouse where he first glimpses a beautiful older man. Aaron notices the sweet towel boy watching him with interest every time he patronizes the Temple of Eros bathhouse. A traumatic incident for the innocent towel boy triggers Aaron’s protective tendencies and he’s compelled to rescue the gentle Sam from the clutches of the Temple’s manager.
They embark on a journey together that teaches them both things about themselves that they never knew. As their bond deepens and Sam is trained for his first night at the Hampton Road Club, an unknown danger lurks. Will Sam’s father find him and destroy both men’s chance for true happiness together? Or will Aaron protect his boy and keep him for always?

Reader Advisory: This book contains a scene of branding.

Here’s an excerpt to tempt you…

Sam’s heart fluttered as he mulled it all over. So many amazing things had happened to him in a very short time. Aaron pulled him close to his chest, then cradled his head with one hand, embracing him and grasping his thigh with the other.
“Thank you, Sam. You’ve shared some very personal things with me. I appreciate your trust. It’s only fair that I tell you about me too.”
Aaron kissed his temple then pulled back so he could look into his eyes once more.
“It makes me excited when I tie men up.”
Sam held his breath. He didn’t mean to, but he was sure he had to be hearing things again. “Really?”
“Yes. Really.”
It wasn’t until he snapped his jaw shut that he realized it had been hanging open. “Can we go do that right now?”
Aaron sputtered then broke into gales of laughter. Sam was about to work himself up into a good dose of anger when Aaron pulled him close, rocking him, kissing his head and face over and over.
I want him to kiss my mouth.
Aaron pulled back, his eyes glittery and happy. “Very soon, Sam. I’m trying to go slow because you have no experience. I don’t want you to become overwhelmed. Remember? It’s my job to watch out for you.”
“Okay, I understand.”
As he caressed Sam’s forehead, stroking his hair back, Aaron continued to gaze at him. He looked all over Sam’s face, his body, almost as if he were inspecting him. His expression reminded Sam of someone in awe, but he couldn’t imagine why Aaron would be staring at him in that way. Aaron stilled his movements, locking eyes with him.
“There are also other activities that get me excited. Activities that used to make me think I was a freak too, but I’ve learned not to believe that anymore. You will probably think them strange. I’ll go slow with you—like with everything else—but these are things I need to do with a man to keep me happy.”
“What things?”
“I like inflicting erotic pain. Especially when my partner is tied up.”
Sam understood the pain part quite well. He had no idea what ‘erotic’ meant though.
“What’s erotic pain?”
“It’s the kind of pain someone gives you to make you sexually excited. It’s never done in anger, only for both partner’s gratification.”
“Oh.” Sam wasn’t sure how he felt about that. He had to admit that it did seem kind of strange. “But how does the pain make you excited?”
“Will you let me try something with you? You don’t need to remove your clothes or get off my lap. Just let me reach up and play with your nipples.”
Finally.
He’d ached for Aaron to touch him beyond the embraces. Those were wonderful, but he wanted real touches, lover’s touches.
Sam nodded enthusiastically as he untucked his shirt. He would’ve unbuttoned it and taken it off, but Aaron reached one of his large, warm hands under the cotton work shirt and tank underneath. Sam hissed at the intimate contact. It felt different than Aaron’s caresses up to that point. Aaron used his fingers to gently knead, to explore his flesh.
When Aaron reached his nipple, he teased the nub, flicking it lightly. Sam’s penis hardened, throbbing and leaking. His little buds had always been very sensitive—something he’d discovered when touching himself—but having someone else do it was unbelievably good. Is that what Aaron meant by erotic? If it was, he wanted to do erotic things all the time.
Aaron stopped worrying his tightened tip and moved to torment the other one. Sam arched into Aaron’s touch, moaning, his breathing speeding up. Then Aaron flicked the nipple back and forth, switched to the other one again, then once more. Sam clutched at Aaron, his grip tightening, along with his balls. A sharp pinch followed by a harsh twist made him cry out. He came. Warmth spread between his legs, soaking his underwear. Aaron continued to tease his nipples as his member pulsed and twitched, more of his seed spilling. He’d never climaxed so hard or so long before. Aaron’s touch was like magic.
Melting into Aaron’s arms, he peered up at him from under his lashes. Aaron’s face was flushed, his gaze filled with desire, the hint of a smile at the corner of his mouth.
“Very good, Sam. We’re going to enjoy one another quite a bit.”
