"Vividly written characters"

Marina, an agent in the Interplanetary Enforcement Unit, has just been offered her dream assignment on a very high profile case. There has been a series of kidnappings. It is suspected that slave traffickers from the BDSM planet of Xarta are taking Earth women to be sold as unwilling submissives. What Marina doesn't realize is that she must go undercover as a sub to track the missing women. Kaden is an Interplanetary Marshall from the Planet Xarta, and in charge of training Marina to take on the role of a submissive. Sparks fly when Marina's fiercely independent personality meets Kaden's dominate one, and where there is a spark the flames are not far behind.

Bound to Trust is the first book in the author's BDSM series, Chains of Love. This is the only book in this genre that I have read but this author is on my must read list. Vividly written characters are Ms. Burton's trademark and her fans will not be disappointed. The heroine, Marina, undergoes a life altering transformation under the attentive instruction of Kaden, a complex and ultra sexy hero. The love scenes are very emotional and erotic but not for the faint of heart. The raw emotions of the characters feel very genuine and you are quite effectively drawn into their relationship. A must read for fans of the BDSM genre, and if you do not normally read this genre, try it, you just might like it.

Several Earth women have disappeared, their trail leading to Xarta, a BDSM planet. Marina, Earth intergalactic investigator, knows that solving this case means a long-awaited promotion. But in order to find the missing women, she'll have to go undercover as a bondage slave on Xarta, something the strong, capable woman wants no part of.

Kaden is a Dom and a native of Xarta. He's also an Intergalactic Marshall, sworn to break up the slave trading ring. His job is to take Marina as his submissive and train her while they're working undercover to expose the slavers and rescue the women.

Reluctantly, Marina agrees to act as a submissive, vowing to both herself and to Kaden that her relationship with him is nothing but an act. Until Kaden shows her a side of life that calls to her in ways she didn't expect.
