Release Day: November 11, 2014
Alexander had the world at his feet and me on my knees…until secrets tore us apart.
I should stay away from him. I should run. But I’m addicted to him…to the pleasure and the pain.
He warned me about his dark side…about his past. But I have a past, too. Together we’ll conquer our demons if we don’t destroy each other first.
“I trust you.” In some ways those words held more meaning than any others I’d spoken to him.
He knew it. Alexander brushed a kiss across my mouth. The sweet gesture only ratcheted up the pulse between my legs. “Put your hands behind your back.”
I obeyed without protest. His arms slipped around me, pinning my wrists together before I felt lace wrapping slowly around them. He bound them together tightly enough that there was no chance I could pull an arm free but not so much that it hurt. A thrill raced from my stomach to my throat. A strange mixture of apprehension and elation swirled through my head. I bit my lip, trying to hold the dizzying effect he had on me at bay. For the first time, I didn’t simply want this—I needed it. I needed him to take command and make me forget all the fear and anger I’d felt earlier.
He stepped back and regarded me—legs spread wide on the counter, hands bound behind my back—and smiled. The darkness that always flickered in the depths of his beautiful eyes flamed to life.
“Now you have me where you want me,” I murmured, surprised at the sultry undertone of my own voice. I wasn’t entirely certain who this vixen was, but I was eager for her to come out and play—eager to let go.
But Alexander held back, clearly not as restless as I was, and shook his head. “Not quite, poppet.”
He slid open a drawer and removed a white kitchen towel. Shaking it open, he laid it on the counter and folded it longwise into precise thirds. When he lifted it to my face, there was a moment of hesitation. He didn’t ask my permission again. He only waited for me to say no, but I was silent. Tying it around my eyes, he whispered, “You still have your voice.”
Then he was gone. I sensed his presence and knew he was standing there surveying his prize. With my sight taken from me, I was aware of the sharp intake of his breath. The air felt cooler on my bare skin. Every inch of me felt alive.
“Beautiful,” he said in appreciative voice. “First, you will eat.”
I started to protest, but it was no use. There was no arguing with Alexander’s protective side. Beside me a bag rustled and I heard the metallic crunch of foil being torn away. An exotic aroma flooded my nostrils and I breathed in, trying to guess what he’d brought home for me. I was an adventurous eater, but I’d always known what was going into my mouth.
“Open your mouth.”
I did as he instructed and spice burst across my tongue. I chewed slowly, delicately. The flavors were Moroccan, I guessed, but although I’d had the cuisine before, I’d never savored it like this, deprived of my sight—deprived of even the ability to feed myself. When I was ready, he offered me another bite and another. Something about the act, so nurturing and yet so domineering, made the experience almost orgasmic. Each bite stole another moan of pleasure from me as the unexpected textures and flavors hit my palate.
“Are you ready for the next course?” he asked at last, and something in his tone sent anticipation fluttering through me.
I nodded, licking my lips.
His hands slid under my arms and he lifted me to my feet. “Kneel.”
When you combine royalty with a forbidden romance and throw in some BDSM, you have one hell of a sexy and intriguing story. This is the follow up to Clara and Alexander’s story which began in Command Me. If you have not read the first book in the Royals Saga, please do yourself a favor and read that so you too can experience Clara and Prince Alexander’s tumultuous journey before you proceed.
Conquer Me picks up in the days following Command Me where we find Clara attempting to piece her life back together in Alexander’s absence. She was heartbroken and devastated finding solace by throwing herself into her work. She managed to avoid the gaping hole in her heart by day, but her nights were consumed with thoughts and dreams of the one man who gave her pleasure but also fulfilled a deeper need.
Prince Alexander, or X as we loving came to know him by, is far from over Clara. He attempts to keep up with appearances demanded of the future king, but he is drawn to Clara in a way that is both foreign and exhilarating. He has secrets and carries the burden of loss such that he refuses to acknowledge his feelings for Clara run deeper than the physical connection they share.
But Alexander has an obligation to his country and its constituents, one that came by way of birth right. Alexander must choose whether he will accept his fate under the demands of the King and expectations of the crown or if he will choose the demands of his heart.
Oh my word – I am not sure where to begin. First of all, I devoured this book. I simply had to know what would happen with Clara and X after the ending of Command Me. The story was captivating, the sex was steamy, the angst was intense and the uncertainty kept me engaged to the very end. The story was well written and the character development continued as the plot unfolded.
I was pleased with where this book concluded but I am anxious for the next installment. There is more to come with Alexander and Clara in Crown Me, which is expected to release February 10, 2015.

When he kissed me, I was shocked. He was a stranger and still so familiar. It wasn’t until I woke up to my picture splashed on the cover of tabloids that I realized I knew who he was.
Prince Alexander of Cambridge.
Royal bad boy.
Exiled heir to the throne.
He isn’t Prince Charming. He’s controlling. He’s demanding. He’s dangerous. And I can’t say no to him.
We both have secrets—secrets that could tear us apart or drive us closer together—and as the paparazzi exposes each one, I have to decide just how far I’m willing to go for King and Country.
