Quantum Entanglement – The Gentle Dominant


Helena just cannot believe the way her life seems to be just perfect. She is beautiful, with a figure to match, and passionately in love with Darius Carter, a young, handsome, perfectly toned film star and he returns that love just as passionately.

She trusts Darius completely as he gently introduces her to his world of BDSM and their lovemaking becomes more intense and pleasurable for them both. However, there is the spectre of Darius’s previous sexual relationship with a high class prostitute, Alice, which somehow always seems to be in the background, not least because of her possible involvement in the abduction and holding to ransom of Helena early on in her relationship with Darius.
