Tender Mercies - Kitty Thomas
Kitty Thomas does this to me every time! Just when I get lulled into a false sense of security in her story...BAM! She turns everything on it's head again. My stomach had just started to settle after everything Grace went through and then the author goes and upsets the apple cart. I'm convinced there is a sadist in her somewhere. LOL

This was an amazing story though. I loved Asher. As uncomfortable as I was with his kink, I really did appreciate him as a master.
