Book 2 of The Kinky Truth
BDSM, Erotic Romance

When Mark Moore arrives in Nassau to conduct a corporate training meeting, his only expectation is a week of professional and personal enjoyment in an island paradise. Since stepping down from his senatorial duties to have more time for his pop star daughter, Dasha, he's liked having free time for projects like this--except for the moments when the memories attack of a love long lost, buried six years ago.

He never expects the sweet surprise of Rose Fabian, a student who soon becomes much more. Her kisses and her passion are a balm for his tattered soul--and her submission reawakens every Dominant instinct in his body. But Rose carries emotional scars of her own, wounds that are worsened by desiring Mark: an older man with social standing and integrity that will only be ruined by her influence. Only in finally surrendering to their love can she find the courage to believe that their future will be written in permanent marker.

Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual situations, graphic language, and material that some readers may find objectionable: BDSM theme and elements.

Ms. Payne's writing is phenomenal in PERMANENT MARKER.

Mark Moore mourned his lost love for so long that he forgot what it was like to be happy. He thought his Dominant soul would never again respond to the tender cries of a submissive. He resigned himself to a life in politics, which he had recently given up. In his new gig as a corporate trainer, he hoped that work would occupy his time. What he hadn't anticipated was Rosalind Fabian. She walked into his training class and set him ablaze with a fire that had been extinguished years ago. However, his Dominant could not deny the submissive vibes that emanated from her.

Rosalind "Rose" Fabian has never been lucky in love. With a domineering mother and overbearing brother constantly at her back, making her relive her shortcomings on a daily basis, she only sees herself an abject failure. When she walks into Mark Moore's class, she's not only taken aback by his obvious magnetism, but something inside her seems to awaken. These renewed feelings give her pause, making her think it's just some silly school girl crush. Besides, what could she offer such an older, accomplished man or any man for that matter?

Their undeniable chemistry pushes these two to act upon feelings that neither can deny. Rose blossoms under his masterful hand, and Mark finds his Dominant spark once again. However, Rose can't stop from living in the past and opening up the old wounds that have scarred her for life. But Mark is not one to give up so easily. He sees a light in Rose that he only wants to get closer to. But will his relentless pursuit cause Rose to retreat into her shell, killing any chances of a future together?

The intensity of Rose's submission to Mark is so well written that it played out like a movie in my head. I fell in love with both of these characters from the very beginning. I was totally invested in this story and couldn't wait to get to the next page. The BDSM aspect of this story was nothing short of fabulous. Ms. Payne has a wonderful grasp of this subject, and the writing was simply beautiful. I can't wait to read the next installment in the series. Bravo, Ms. Payne, bravo!
