[Siren Allure: Erotic Consensual BDSM Romance, voyeurism, shibari, cropping, knife play, sex toys, HEA]

Tough undercover cop Mike Anderson does not submit to anyone, let alone a pint-size bundle of curves with a Mistress complex, who stands for everything he despises about BDSM. Thrown into a world where the rules make no sense to him, he has to rely on his instincts, and they all scream one thing—submit to His Lady.

Scarlett Simpson is one of the most feared Mistresses at Club Spectrum, and she has a score to settle. Mike's atrocious behavior needs addressing. If only she wasn't so attracted to the big hunk of a man, and he didn't prove so utterly responsive. As she explores his boundaries through Shibari and knife play, Scarlett can't help but get emotionally involved.

Submission freely given is a gift she treasures, but can she trust Mike to stay around once the case is over? When danger comes knocking, will Mike be able to protect her, or will this end in tragedy?

Erotic romance at its finest.

Officer Mike Anderson is no stranger to undercover work, but when he finds himself up for auction at a BDSM club dressed only in a thong, it's enough to make him consider a career change.

Someone is stalking Mistress Scarlett, one of the premier Dommes at Club Spectrum. In AUCTIONED TO PROTECT, Mike gets a taste of the BDSM lifestyle while protecting Scarlett.

As the second in a series, it is written as a standalone. I'm adding the others in the series to my TBR pile because I love the way the author adds humor to her writing. Doris O'Connor's style is a "LOL" kind as she introduces one zinger after another. Part of the humor lies in the fact that the hero of the story is essentially a vanilla dominant kind of guy who doesn't appear to have a submissive bone in his body.

First and foremost, this is unmistakably an erotic story at its finest. The heat level is off the charts with this couple, yet the details are woven well into the story's framework.

The supporting characters add to the story's appeal, especially with the ending clearly leading to a future installment.

From Shibari to knives, Mike is put through his paces by Scarlett, demonstrating that the author can clearly depict advanced BDSM scenes.

There's plenty of drama and passion as the story unfolds. It's a relatively short read, but well worth the time.
