In a novel of erotic passion and deep commitment from the author of My Obsession, an undercover cop finds a soulmate who surrenders to his healing touch.

Fiercely independent and determined to free herself from her father’s manipulation, tech expert Kate Fretwell finds a refuge in L.A.’s elite BDSM dungeon scene as the hot new thing to political and Hollywood A-listers. Still, all that glitters gets old, and Kate soon tires of the stream of well-heeled masters who expect her to be at their beck and call. Then she meets a very different kind of Dom—one whose quiet confidence, strength, and command bring her most willingly to her knees.

Undercover FBI agent Dex Alexander fits right into his assignment to expose terrorist links to one of L.A.’s most popular clubs. The case has reawakened a desire to find the perfect companion, and he knows that beautiful, vulnerable Kate is a woman he could love. But when her father’s corruption unwittingly makes Kate the target of a bigger enemy, Dex brings her to his Phoenix home—and his dungeon, Club Desire. Here she shows him just how eager she is to give him everything . . . and more.

I liked Kate a lot. She is determined and stronger than she thinks. It was interesting to watch her character when she was with various Dom's and when she deals with her dad. The interaction's with her dad is portrayed in such real detail that the reader wants to scream at her dad, "Listen and don't talk". Her character shows a woman who is empowered and knows how to take care of herself even when things do not turn out the way ones hopes.

Undercover Dex for some reason didn't connect with me. He was hot, protective of sub's, and dedicated to his career but somehow I couldn't feel myself falling madly in love with him. I do feel he was the perfect match for Kate and that he understood her unlike anyone she knows even her father.

The most dynamic parts of the story for me was from chapter 25 through the end of the book. I will say I was pleasantly surprised with the direction the author took the story and how it ended.

I give this book 3 STARS because I couldn't connect with the hero but I did like the story and plan to read more of her books.

Cassie Ryan (a.k.a. Tina Gerow) started her published writing career writing steamy paranormal romance under another pen name. However, when one of her critique partners, Brit Blaise, suggested she try her hand at erotic romance, she gave it a shot! After all, shes not a girl to turn down a challenge of any type. So, she pulled out all the stops and wrote the first several chapters of what would become CEREMONY OF SEDUCTION. 

After hearing Audrey LaFehr from Kensington speak on a new erotic romance line shed started called Aphrodisia, at RWA Nationals, Cassie sent in her partial and went back to writing. So, when Audrey fished her partial out of the slush pile and offered her a three book deal, Cassie Ryan was officially born.

Cassie lives in Phoenix, Arizona and besides being a write-a-holic, is a frequent speaker on several writing and motivational topics.
