There are two things Valentine Nichols
wants most in the world: for Shane Daniels to truly see
her and to find someone who’s willing to take her education
in the world of D/s to the next level. Though she’s been in
love with Shane for years, he’s her brother’s best friend
and Valentine’s self-appointed protector, so the first is
out. Valentine’s search for latter, however, takes her to a
local BDSM club where she discovers the last thing she ever
thought she’d find: Shane wielding a whip. Armed with the
knowledge that Shane is a Dom, Valentine hatches a very
wicked plan. She’ll get Shane to notice her by asking for
lessons in submission.
Shane can’t believe what Valentine has
asked of him. There’s no way he can get sexually involved
with his best friend’s little sister…even if she has grown
into the woman he desires above all others. But Shane
doesn’t want Valentine to look for others to teach her about
submission, either. So he strikes a bargain with her.
He’ll teach her about D/s, but there won’t be any sex.
Valentine agrees, but something tells Shane she won’t be
sticking to their deal.
Lessons in submission quickly escalate
to a battle of wills. Who will win? And will the cost of
victory be losing the one they care about the most? Or will
the prize be a love that could last a lifetime?
A Spanking for Valentine
is sugar and spice and everything…naughty. I have a new
favorite book of Evangeline Anderson’s and trust me when I
say A Spanking for Valentine has a lot of
competition. What sends this book over the top for me is
the mix of tender and tart. There’s something incredibly
sweet about both Valentine and Shane. Their love for one
another comes right off the page from the start, even if
Shane doesn’t recognize the depth of his feelings for her at
first. Ms. Anderson definitely hit my “dreamy sigh” button
more than a few times in A Spanking for Valentine,
even at moments I wouldn’t have expected it.
When Ms. Anderson wasn’t making my
heart melt, she was making it race. A Spanking for
Valentine was h-o-t HOT! I’ve come to expect
searingly erotic stories from Ms. Anderson, and the love
scenes in this story didn’t disappoint. The emotional
connection between Valentine and Shane made her “lessons”
all the more sensual. From the first page to the last,
A Spanking for Valentine had my undivided
attention. I loved this story and Joyfully Recommend it!
