Believing love is pure folly, Natasha rejects the offer of her Master’s collar. When she turns to old addictions to ease her pain, she risks losing all He has taught her, and even more besides.
The excitement is everywhere, from Las Vegas to Brisbane! In fact, it’s probably right in the middle of those two places that the excitement is greatest! So, depending on which direction you go, that’s either in southern Central African Republic, or about 1,000 miles south of Hawaii.
That’s right, the third “Consummate Therapy” book releases in almost no time, bringing the series to a climactic…uh, climax!
If you haven’t caught up with the trials and tribbing…sorry, tribulations…of Natasha Blakely, billionaire CEO, then now is the perfect time to get your fingers wet. Sorry, I meant “feet”. Get your feet wet.
When we first meet Natasha, she’s a hard-nosed control freak with unhealthy addictions to coffee, cigarettes, and pretty young men with prices on their…well, let’s say “heads”. When her therapist, Dr. Benson, recommends “Submission Therapy”, she is introduced to the notion of letting go, of releasing control. Master Sweet shows her the mental, physical and emotional benefits of simply submitting to the will of another.
Her journey continues through “Occupational Therapy”, where she learns a most intimate form of personal control. Her determination is strong but brittle, and though she’s had great success in her business life, she finds these personal challenges far more difficult. Simply because they require her to open up all the emotions and memories that she has suppressed or denied in order to compete in a man’s world. When this chapter ends, Natasha is faced with the most pivotal emotional choice she’s ever had to make.
Which brings us to “Immersion Therapy”. This story releases on Friday, November 30th in the US, and it brings out the best and worst of Natasha’s behavior. Her pride wars with her need. With the overload of sensation that Master Sweet has introduced her to, she flails against everything she once knew to be true. Yet she struggles to believe that a man who feels this good can have any kind of permanence in her life.
SHORT EXCERPT from IMMERSION THERAPY:
It didn’t escape me that He held His arms stiffly by His sides. The heat of His skin was a marked counterpoint to the coldness of His voice. “We’re done here, Natasha. You were instructed to return on time, you did not. You made your choice.”
“No, Master. I made a mistake.”
“I am not your Master. I am not your doctor. I am, as of 8:01pm, nothing to you.”
For the first time I could remember, there was a vein of anger in His voice.
I grasped at His hand and tried to put it up on the back of my neck, the way I’d seen Chloe do it. He pulled out of my grip insistently, but without any apparent menace. He simply stood there, stoic and resolute, probably waiting for me to run away in tears. And though I was very tempted to do just that, I knew it was the one move that was guaranteed to lose Him forever.
“You are my Master. You will always be, even if I never see You again. You know me better than anyone, so I know you understand what scared me.”
“Of course. But there are strict rules by which I operate. I gave you a choice and a time to make it by. That’s how business works. You of all people know that, Ms. Blakely.”
That was worse than spitting in my face, calling me that. And implying that everything we’d done had simply been His job. It felt like He was completely detached from me.

Willsin Rowe falls in love with a scent, a playful expression or an act of casual intimacy more easily than with physical beauty. When confronted by any combination of those elements he is a lost cause. He has done many things over and over, done even more things only once, and half-done more things than he cares to admit. He loves to sing and doesn’t let his voice get in the way. He is intelligent but not sensible. He is passionate but fearful. He is not scruffy enough or stylish enough to be cool.
