Only one man can help her. Is she willing to pay his price?

Faced with the potentially overwhelming loss of her family’s fortune, Lara Bertrand turns to the one man who can help her, the gorgeous and powerful Connor Donovan.

She knows he’s dangerous to her on every level. Only desperation would drive her to make such a risky proposition. After all, she knows all about his ruthless nature and relentless determination to succeed.

When the classy, elegant Lara walks into his office with an outrageous proposal, Connor is stunned and more than a little intrigued. Ever since he first met her, he’s been attracted to the cool beauty, but she’s more than kept her distance.

Connor is absolutely willing to help her out. For a price. He not only wants her hand in marriage, but also her total submissive surrender…

Sierra Cartwright's new series, The Donovan Dynasty, lures readers in with one sexy and powerful family. Bind, the first book in the series, follows Connor Donovan, a man that has had to step up to the plate and help take the reigns of the family dynasty. When Lara proposes a marriage of convenience, Connor agrees with a couple stipulations. You see, Connor is a dominant and he will only help Lara if she agrees to be his submissive. Bind has Sierra's trademark sexiness that'll leave you searching for a fan. The sexual chemistry between Connor and Lara is hot. It was their instant attraction that initially hooked my attention, but as I continued to read the story, it was the subtle blossoming romance that made me fall in love with the book. As much as he tries to fight it, Connor soon finds himself wanting to spend more and more time with Lara. Soon, they both begin to feel things that they never thought possible. I love Sierra's work. Her writing is so very sexy, yet sweet at the same time. Sierra's characters are fantastic. Connor was a sexy addition to Sierra's collection of sizzling hot heroes. Lara had me in stitches more than once, especially with her addiction to a certain tub. Bind was such a fun introduction to the new series. I must admit that I giggled when Sierra "introduced" the connection between this series and her previous Bonds series. That was perfect! I know that the focus of the series is on the Donovan brothers, but I'm secretly hoping the Donovan sister gets her chance. She's a sneaky little devil... 

Sierra Cartwright was born in Manchester, England and raised in Colorado. Moving to the United States was nothing like her young imagination had concocted. She expected to see cowboys everywhere, and a covered wagon or two would have been really nice!

Now she writes novels as untamed as the Rockies, while spending a fair amount of time in Texas…where, it turns out, the Texas Rangers law officers don't ride horses to roundup the bad guys, or have six-shooters strapped to their sexy thighs as she expected. And she's yet to see a poster that says Wanted: Dead or Alive. (Can you tell she has a vivid imagination?)

Sierra wrote her first book at age nine, a fanfic episode of Star Trek when she was fifteen, and she completed her first romance novel at nineteen. She actually kissed William Shatner (Captain Kirk) on the cheek once, and she says that's her biggest claim to fame. Her adventure through the turmoil of trust has taught her that love is the greatest gift. Like her image of the Old West, her writing is untamed, and nothing is off-limits.

She invites you to take a walk on the wild side…but only if you dare.
