Wealthy computer genius Graham Winters is in love with a woman who won’t join him for a stingy cup of coffee. How can he prove he’s nothing like her jerk of an ex if she won’t give him a chance? Then he spots her at a BDSM club and devises a plan. During the day, he’s “that damn geek.” At night, he’s the masked Dom known as The Wolf.

When it comes to her love life, Lucy Sanchez has one rule—no geeks. Not even rich, good looking geeks. She’s attracted to Graham but rules are rules. Besides, she has her wolf, the mysterious Dom who makes her blood sing. Then she’s invited to a fairytale event at Pleasure Manor and this Little Red Riding Hood plans to enjoy every delicious moment with her big, bad Dom.


“Red Riding Hood. Your wolf awaits.”

Lucy stepped forward as did her wolf. He pointed to the ground. Lucy knelt, assuming a submissive posture. Her Dom circled her several times, then stopped in front of her.

He snapped his fingers. “Follow me. The woods await.”

His deep, husky voice with just a hint of an accent vibrated through her, warming her belly and heating her core. It amazed her that his voice alone made her throb. She stood, keeping her head bent, her gaze to the ground. When he whipped around to lead the way, she almost stumbled. Not only was his crotch cut out but so was the seat of his pants.

She stared at the G-string. The black set off his nicely tanned buttocks and was more temptation than she could resist. As soon as they exited through a side door into the garden, she cupped his cheeks, finding the flesh warm and firm. The man most definitely worked out.

He stopped suddenly, eyes narrowed to slits behind his mask. “Did I give you permission to touch?”

Head bowed meekly, Lucy licked her lips. “No, Sir. I’m sorry, Sir. I couldn’t resist. Guess you’ll have to punish me. Sir.”

“Ah, my lovely little sub wants to be punished?”

Lucy shivered. “Oh, yes, Sir. I need to be punished.”

***Nona's Review of Red and Her Big Bad Dom by Sydney St. Claire***

Lucy Sanchez hates geeks. She was married to one who did her wrong and since then, all geeks are off the menu. There’s one guy in her office though, who can’t seem to take a hint--Graham Winters. Though he’s hot and handsome, Lucy’s rule holds firm. No geeks.

Lucy’s not on ice, though. She’s involved in a BDSM relationship with a very sexy Dom who pushes all her buttons. She spends a long fairy-tale themed weekend playing Red to his Big Bad Wolf where all her fantasies are fulfilled. The problem, though, is that she never sees his face and he keeps himself at a distance emotionally. When circumstances force Lucy to spend time with Graham, she finds they have a lot in common and attraction between them grows. But what will she do when she discovers that behind the mask, her Big Bad Dom is really Graham? (I’m not revealing any spoilers here, the reader learns the truth about Graham in the first chapter.)

This was a fun and sexy story. Lucy is a firecracker who knows what she wants sexually and isn’t afraid to go for it. Though she is sexually submissive with her Dom, she’s no pushover. Her verbal sparring with Graham was a lot of fun. I also liked how loyal she was to her shy friend Jaimie. I enjoyed Graham, too. He really kept Lucy on her toes (or should I say on her knees?) but his more tender side was as captivating as his Dominant side.

I thought I knew how the events would play out, but the author threw in a little twist that I didn’t see coming. Let me just say that Lucy’s reaction upon discovering the truth was not what I expected! But I enjoyed the story all the more for that. If you’re looking for an erotic story with steamy BDSM play as well as romance, you will enjoy Red and Her Big Bad Dom. This is the second in Sydney St. Claire’s Once Upon a Dom series--I will definitely be checking out others in the collection.

AUTHOR Bio and Links:

Sydney St. Claire is the pseudonym of Susan Edwards, author of 14 Historical Native American/Western/Paranormal romances and the author of the popular “White” Series.

Sydney loves writing and sharing stories of love, happiness and dreams come true with her readers. She credits her mother for her writing success.  Encouraged to read as a child, she always preferred happy endings which meant romances were her favorite genre.  Sydney takes her readers into the world of erotica romance where her characters come together in explosive passion as they solve life’s problems and find true love along with the best sex our hero and heroine have ever experienced.

Sydney’s office is quite crowded with three dogs at her feet and five cats to keep her company while she writes. Three cats always insist on beds on her desk, barely leaving enough room for her monitor and keyboard. Life gets fun when all five insist on supervising…

When not writing, she enjoys crafts of all sorts including quilting, sewing, cross-stitch and knitting. She and her husband of 30 + years are avid gardeners. He takes care of the veggies, and Susan is in charge of the ‘pretties’. Her medicine wheel garden is in a contact state of war: flowers vs. weeds. Sadly, right now the weeds are wining…

While writing, she listens to a wide variety of music. Her current favorites are Blackmore’s Night and David Lanz.
