Peek Inside Down on Her Knees

Detective Rafe Davenport makes Courtney DeLollis uneasy. She knows all too well what happens when a man has too much control, but a deeper, darker part of her is fascinated by his need to dominate in the bedroom. So when Rafe suggests something that will benefit them both—four scenes, each designed to tease and torment—Courtney reluctantly agrees.

Four lessons, no strings…

Detective Rafe Davenport has always made Courtney DeLollis uneasy. While her instincts whisper, Touch him, her mind says, Run. But since she learned that he’s dominant in the bedroom, she hasn’t been able to forget about it. She should be appalled—she knows all too well what happens when a man has too much control—but a deeper, darker part of her is fascinated…

And so is Rafe. The sexual tension between them is thick enough to touch, and damn, does he want to touch. So he suggests something that will benefit them both. Four scenes—because anything more is a relationship, and Rafe won’t go there ever again. Each scenario is designed to tease and torment. To show Courtney that with every submission comes the reward of scintillating pleasure. But once he has Courtney down on her knees, Rafe realizes that she might be the one woman capable of bringing him to his


"This book had me down on my knees begging for more." --Kim Bailey, Goodreads

"This is a must read! Christine Bell is an auto buy author for me as of this book, and I can't wait for more from her. I also plan to rectify my stupidity and going back to read the rest of the books in this series. If they were anywhere near as hot as this one, I have been really missing out." --Dirty Girl Romance

"Christine Bell has done it again. I'm telling you straight readers, every novel that this author touches you can expect sizzling hot. 'Down on her knees' delivered the sexy and I'm happy to say that I enjoyed this kinky side of Christine Bell's writing." --Lisa, Goodreads

Tell me you're in, Court. I dare you.

What rock have I been living under that I'm only discovering this series and this author now? No really? I'm kicking my own ass at the moment for not finding it sooner. Of course I'd much rather have Rafe spank me for being suc ...more

This book had me down on my knees begging for more.

Four Scenes ... that was the agreement ... four scenes of kink to show Courtney that being submissive can be empowering ... and four scenes for Rafe to get her worked out of his system.

I'm really liking Christine Bell's writing style. It's funny and --wowza--steamy. I wasn't too sure how much I would like this considering I'm sort of BDSMed out lately. Not to go on a rant or anything but floggers and orgasms-on-command are starting to wear on my nerves. But this is Christine Bell. ...more

ARC Review.Ooh Honey. Rafe and Courtney are on fire! They have an agreement- four scenes and then walk away and no one gets hurt.
