Scott Keating is trapped. His parents control every aspect of his existence. But when Scott gains access to the Internet and finds ‘JeffUK’ in a chat room, everything changes. Jeff understands him. Jeff loves him. And when Jeff offers to bring Scott over to the UK to be with him, Scott seizes the opportunity both to escape his bland, humdrum life and to have the chance to care for someone, and have them care for him. It’s all Scott has wanted for a long time. But when his plane touches down and Jeff isn’t there, panic sets in. Scott is scared and alone – but not for long.
Ben Winters is the barman at the BDSM club Collars & Cuffs, not to mention a trainee Dom, who has always wanted a submissive of his own, but personal circumstances make that impossible. When he spies Scott at the airport, he takes pity on him and tries to help him – especially when he hears about Jeff, which sets off all sorts of alarm bells. He takes Scott to his bosses, Leo Hart and Thomas Wiliams, figuring that between them, they can help Scott. One temporary solution is that Scott stays with Ben. Scott has his first introduction to the world of BDSM and is instantly intrigued. A deepening friendship with Alex and Peter, two very different submissives, leads Scott to the discovery that he wants what they have – and he wants Ben to be his Dom.
Although it takes Ben some time to see what is right under his nose, eventually the two men find each other, only to have an accident threaten to tear them apart – especially when there are others who don’t want them to be together…
