Action/Adventure Romance, BDSM, Erotic Romance
For as long as she could remember, Becca dreamed of a dominant man to take her in hand, and Zac, the handsome Marine she met at her sister's wedding, filled the role with aplomb… for a weekend. Then the fling came to an end, Zac went off to war and died for his country, and Becca learned she carried a child who would be born without a father.
Seven years later, Becca has done her best to move on and forget about Zac… until the day she walks into her kitchen to find the man she believed she would never see again locked in mortal combat with her son's nanny, and realizes everything she thought she knew about Zac was a lie.
Like all Black Ops agents, Zac doesn't exist in any government record. His life is a series of deadly missions, and relationships of any kind are unsanctioned. But he keeps one secret. He watches over Becca, the beautiful daughter of a rogue agent, and Parker, the six-year-old boy he fathered that fateful weekend. When he spots a known assassin in their apartment posing as a nanny, he's forced to reveal himself and take them to safety… whether Becca likes it or not.
While Becca may have enjoyed his dominance once, bending her to his will again may not be quite so easy. He is determined to keep her safe, however, and if a long, hard spanking is required, he is more than willing to oblige. Having Becca over his knee rekindles more than his passion, though; even when the immediate danger has passed, he finds it much more difficult to "ghost out" on his family again. Must he resign himself to protecting those he loves from afar, or can he find a way to be the man Becca needs and longs for, the man who is worthy of her submission and her love?
Publisher's Note: Safe in His Arms is an erotic romance novel that includes both consensual and non-consensual spankings, anal play, graphic sexual scenes, and more. If such material offends you, please don't buy this book.

The connection that a son and father have is beautiful in this story. Only that there are too many secrets surrounding Becca that can either break her or make her stronger to hold dear the people she loves. Things are never what they seem.
Becca is a single mother who believed that the man she slept with died for his country, until the day that she finds said man fighting with her nanny in the kitchen in her apartment. She met this man seven years ago at her sister's wedding. Becca had a wonderful, blissful weekend full of erotic fantasies that were fulfilled but left her wanting more. That weekend, she experienced some levels of the BDSM lifestyle, especially being dominated with a side of erotic spanking. But that night he walked out of her life because he had a mission and she didn't know if she would ever hear from him again. He did leave her with a little souvenir—Parker.
Zac is on a mission. He's a Black Ops agent and he has been assigned to find a family member of Becca. He never thought that a weekend with Becca would change his life, but something about her changed him that weekend, as he found himself thinking about a house, the wife and the 2.5 kids. Becca knew what she wanted in life, knew what she wanted to be. But what about him? Was he happy in the life he had been dealt with or was he just a person that was dead inside?
SAFE IN HIS ARMS has everything rolled up in one—it's action-packed, suspenseful, and it has steaming hot romance and hot as hell spanking. It was a great book. It was a quick read for me but one that when I started reading I didn't want to put it down. This is my first read by Ms Rose and I have to say that this will definitely not be my last.
The plot is fast paced and has plenty of twist and turns which were intriguing. The characters are well developed and I was able to connect with them. The author's style is easy to read and has a good sight on writing a good romance story with a touch of suspense but also sensual, erotic sex scenes. Zac is a very dominant man who does not like it when Becca defies him or acts like a child when she doesn't get her way. The spankings she gets are pleasurable but they are also meant to reconnect; she needs them in order for her to calm down and they are able to speak. Becca knows that she enjoys it when Zac tells her to bend over the bed; she is ready for his hand, for what may be in his hand, and only he can give her what she needs.
An applause to Ms Rose for a well written novel, one that I recommend to readers who love romance with a twist of suspense and, of course, a happy ending.
