Matt Pearce never knew what happened to Kate when she disappeared from his life. He certainly didn’t expect to run into her in a mall in Connecticut, nor did he anticipate her panicked race to get away from him. He thought they’d had an ideal relationship but now he believes he didn’t know her at all - he needs answers and fully intends to get them.
Kate never viewed herself as a submissive. Even now she’s having difficulties understanding what possessed her to want to submit to Matt. Of course it doesn’t help any that she feels betrayed by him, even though she disappeared before confronting him about what happened the last time they were together. She’s under the impression that if she can just evade him while he’s in Connecticut then she’ll be safe from his appeal and won’t have to rehash the events that led to her leaving. Matt knows they both need closure one way or the other and uses his business sense to force the inevitable.
THE CHASE is the first part of Opal Carew’s HIS TO COMMAND series. Each story flows seamlessly into the next one so I’d highly recommend getting your hands on all of them and reading them in order. Kate and Matt are a great couple but as with any relationship worth having they have some issues to overcome. Kate’s a strong woman but she’s uncomfortable with her need to submit to Matt and isn’t sure how to not lose herself or her independence while still giving Matt what he needs.
