Safe in His Arms

Safe in His Arms by Renee Rose

The short book packed quite a punch.  You never know how a short story is going to go.  I have read some I wish were longer and some that just plain sucked.  Rarely do I find a novella stand-alone that I enjoy.  This book was a shockingly pleasant surprise. 

I blew through this book in one sitting and it was everything I was hoping for.  It has some action, erotica, and most importantly romance.  The fast paced plot was full of twist and turns.  The characters have depth and connection.

This is a great quick read!

On a side note, I loved the heroine’s name Becca.  Since I am a Becca I feel bias toward the name even though we don’t see it often in books.


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?
