Navy SEAL Commander Flynn Dalton is looking forward to the next chapter in his life. After two decades of active duty, he’s home and ready to put down roots. Though his days are spent training new recruits at Coronado Island, his nights finally belong to him. And there’s only one thing the commander wants to do: search for his perfect submissive. Too bad the woman he wants to claim is too young, too shy, and too damn vanilla.
Systems analyst Cassie Hardwick should have a very busy social life. After all, she works on a naval base surrounded by gorgeous men in uniform. But she’s not interested in any of the potential perks of her job because she only has eyes for one man: a powerful, gritty, and unbelievably sexy officer. Unfortunately, Flynn sees her as nothing more than a sweet kid.
When her best friend suggests a masquerade party at an exclusive out of town club, Cassie doesn’t expect to run into any of her co-workers, let alone the one she’s gone there to forget. When the masks come off at midnight, Flynn is more than surprised to discover what he’s been searching for— is definitely not too young or too vanilla—and has been right in front of him all along.
This is book two in the Decadence L.A. series but can be enjoyed as a standalone.
A USA Today and #1 international bestselling author, Maddie is a lifelong reader who became a romance junkie as a teen with her first romance novel, The Wolf and the Dove by Kathleen Woodiwiss. From then on, she was hooked, and gobbled up everything she could get her hands on, whether contemporary, historical, paranormal or sci-fi. If there was romance to be found between a strong alpha male, and a sassy, adventurous and ofttimes defiant yet loving woman, Maddie was all over it. As an author, she stays true to those themes writing steamy erotic romance, with a side of kink, and adding elements of intrigue, danger and suspense to her plots.
Maddie started writing as a hobby. Her stories stayed private while she raised a family and worked full time as a registered nurse. It wasn’t until 2012 that she decided to take the plunge and submit her first book for publication: Captain My Captain. She went on to publish eleven novels the first year.
