Anna Palladino dreams of independence from her over-protective but loving family. Her fantasies, gained from erotic novels, show her possibilities she doesn’t believe extend to real life. Her limited experience in the bedroom has confirmed her low expectations.
Edward Masters is ready to give up his own fantasy life if that’s what it takes to have the home and family of his dreams. He has set his sights on a sweet, innocent woman who works for his friend and client Randolph Marks. Marks has found the perfect combination of vixen and warm companion in his Mona, but is it too much to hope that Edward and Anna will be the next office romance at Marks and Company? Is the cute, curly haired receptionist ready to take on the desires of a Dom, or has Edward seen his last night of play in the dungeon?
Dungeon Time is a standalone book…kind of. While there doesn’t seem to be a noted series, this novella takes place after Spanking Ms. Whitman. I would recommend reading Spanking Ms. Whitman prior to reading this book. Not because it’s required to understand the story, but because as you are reading you see tidbits of Mona and Randolph’s relationship and because the novella is just plain fun. Oh and hot.
Things happen quickly in this novella. Anna and Edward’s connection happens within pretty much 24 hours, but it has been building for ages. I can completely see their scenario happening and might I say that I’m a bit jealous. Edward is an interesting character that I wouldn’t mind getting to know. While Anna is lovely, my thoughts are on him.
Anna isn’t as innocent as Edward has originally thought and when she starts to come out of her shell, watch out. I love how she shocked him and kept it coming.
Dungeon Time is a quick, sexy read. I totally enjoyed it and I hope we see more of these characters in future stories. Ms. Richards did a wonderful job and I had a blast reading it.
