Tempest, a sweet, voluptuous blonde, is about to marry a man she has no feelings for whatsoever. She has one final hurdle to conquer before she marries him. She needs to find Josh, the man her father made her leave eight years earlier. She needs to settle the past by putting some closure on it.
However, once she sees Josh again, she realizes that closure is not so easy. Tempest remembers all too easily how Josh made her feel, how his dominant nature called to the submissive inside of her. She used to love how he exerted GENTLE CONTROL over her, how he made her feel so at ease with her submissive side. She relished being controlled and the loving, sweet way that he showed her his dominance. Knowing it won’t be easy to walk away from him, she sets out to close the door on the past and a loveless marriage. Before she knows it, she begins to think about opening the door into the future, with Josh, as his partner.
Josh, a hot, sexy dominant hasn’t had a date in years. Ever since his one true love, Tempest, walked out him, he has never forgot about her. His sister-in-law reads tarot cards and offers to read his. He has little use for them but goes along with it anyway out of mild curiosity. When she pulls the ‘control’ card, he fails to see how it could apply to his life.
GENTLE CONTROL is a surprisingly sweet yet sexy story that combines a dominant male, a submissive female, and the fiery passion that they cannot forget. Tempest, while submissive, is a force to be reckoned with. She is the perfect example of a character that prefers the submissive role, yet relishes the control she has in that role. I find Josh amazingly hot as he exerts his dominance. Tempest, while seemingly shy on the outside, has the perfect combination of steel and silk to create a perfect submissive, sexy, partner. Ms. Paulin combined two very appealing characters whose characteristics perfectly complement each other. GENTLE CONTROL sounds pretty appealing after finishing this hot read!
