“I don't need you to be perfect to want you. I just need to know you're trying to be the best person you can be with me, and you're always, always trying to be honest.”
Regina is a Mistress who likes the challenge of a difficult male submissive. After working as a correctional officer in the prison system, where she saw how lost a man could get, the opportunity to help a man work through his issues and embrace the loving service he truly wants to offer to a Mistress gives her a sense of peace and pleasure.
Due to repeat offenses for bad behavior, Marius has been kicked out of the BDSM club they both frequent. When she becomes his last chance for reinstatement, all her previous experience with difficult subs will be called into play to help this one very troubled alpha male. Marius pays his bills with illegal underground fights, and stays only a couple steps ahead of being homeless. The charm he used to wield toward Mistresses has been swallowed by a predatory nature. To find what triggered the change, and uncover the man he was meant to be, Regina has to delve deep inside his mind, which she discovers is a very dangerous place. But Regina is no one’s prey, and the more she learns about Marius, the more she realizes it will take not just her skills as a Mistress, but her heart and soul, to heal him.
“You know what I could be for you, Marius? The sun. Doesn’t matter what kind of clouds you kick up. My job is to bring light. Make things grow, keep you warm, tell you there’s something more than darkness.”

“Joey W. Hill writes relationships so complex, they suck you in and keep you trying to figure how they will turn out. She brings such moments of intensity that your heart is pounding and it’s hard to catch your breath; then tempers those feelings by interspersing such tender, emotional scenes throughout that your heart lifts and you feel the need to sigh. Hill is a truly gifted author.” --Whipped Cream Reviews
