I’ll ruin her if she doesn’t ruin me first…

When a gorgeous new tenant slips into my office the night of her twenty-first birthday with only one thing on her mind, I know I should send her on her way. Even if the thought of her tied up and at my mercy makes me ache.

I’m a harsh, demanding man, and Kymber’s too young, too innocent. A goddamn virgin. I hate myself for even thinking about stealing what should belong to another.

So I do the honorable thing. I walk away.

My babygirl is just as stubborn as me, though. Twenty-two years in the military, my discipline never faltered. Not once. And yet the feel of her trembling against me, begging for my permission, makes me lose all control.

Her innocent touch kick starts my battered heart. But my past left me with an emptiness I can’t fill, and I’ll be damned if I let my darkness destroy her light…

STIFF DISCIPLINE is a hot as hell standalone M/F romance with a dominant hero who plays on the edge. As with all my books, there is no cheating, and a HEA is guaranteed!

"Would you like to come upstairs and have sex with me?" That's how everything started. A line I can only hope to one day have the confidence to use.

This book got steamy in a hurry which is much appreciated because I hate waiting around for the good parts. Let me tell you, there were a lot of good pa ...more

Stiff Discipline was a quick and hot story. It was taboo, sexy and was such a fun palette cleanser. Kymber and Daniel had combustible chemistry. This story was pure insta-love but it was what it was as you went in figuring that. Despite this, I loved their banter and chemistry and was hooked! I can' ...more

So the book started off with a bang. I was thinking. Yes! This is what I'm looking for. I want something gritty with a gruff intense hero and a naive girl. I was really getting into it and then looked down to see I was at 25% in the book. Wait what. It just started.

Then I realized this was an off-sh ...more

I went into this book thinking that it wouldn't live up to my expectations but I was proven to be very wrong. This story was surprisingly very interesting and well developed. The characters had depth to them and they seemed very realistic. The story seemed to develop a little quickly but it wasn't s ...more

This was a quick, fast paced insta love story featuring a sexy, broody 40ish dom and a 21 year old virgin. That got down and dirty real quick and kept me engaged throughout. Thanks to very likable characters, humour and plenty of heat. And I'd happily recommend it to others.

Sexy instant attraction younger woman/older man novella

Ember Cole's Stiff Discipline is seriously sexy. Kimberly and Daniel's chemistry is off the charts. While there aren't many twists and turns in the plot the HEA is neatly tied up in the epilogue.

A short, fast paced and steamy read.
