In this re-release of a Cheyenne McCray, writing now as Jaymie Holland, short novel, Claimed by Pleasure, Alexi is kidnapped from her home on earth to a foreign plan where men are kings and turn into tigers and wolves. When she meets handsome Darronn she is told that he is her mate and she must be trained to learn her place. As a strong willed woman calling a man master goes against all she is, but she isn't above playing a little with a handsome stranger.
All good fun must come to an end, however, because Alexi has to get back home and find her twin sister who has been missing for a year. Can she leave this strong handsome shapeshifter king to go back to her world, or can she learn to trust that this man will help her and remain in his world?
Not usually into BDSM book, I tend to gravitate towards those that are filled with strong deviant women who know how to hold their own. Alexi is just that woman. The king in these books might be dominants, but he's met his match when it comes to Alexi and he knows it, which makes his character all the more appealing.
Definitely a page turner for those who enjoy a little bondage and a fun tale in the world of the King of Spades.
Formerly titled Wonderland: King of Spades (under the pen name Cheyenne McCray)
Alexi O'Brien is pissed and will stop at nothing to locate her missing twin. When she's abducted into a beautiful and highly sexual world, Alexi is determined to escape and resume her search—even though the dark and dangerous man who captured her excites her in unimaginable ways.
King Darronn prefers his women submissive...his future queen is anything but. Whatever it takes, Darronn intends to convince the fiery and spirited Alexi that her body, heart, and soul belong to him.
