Accepting a vice presidency for an investment banking institution Scarlett attends their Christmas party. As Scarlett enters the party Chase is in awe of her beauty, so when Vince's attention focuses on another woman Chase seizes his opportunity to pounce. Control is his name of the game. He accustoms her to his control with verbal demands, kisses, body presses and potent body positioning. Scarlett abhors his treatment but it makes her feel incredibly feminine and turns her on.
She doesn't want a controlling relationship and quits. Chase needs her to cover a merger meeting on Wednesday. She still quits and threatens him she'll disappear. Chase puts her over his shoulder and takes her to Italy with him so as to keep her with/for him.
The story is really quite complicated as Chase does as he pleases victimizing Scarlett throughout. He does have feelings for her though. When Chase leaves the house Scarlett runs away into the Italian snow covered countryside and loses her way. She's freezing and is rescued by the local monastery's people.
Then Scarlett goes back to him as he acknowledges his love for her, and proposes.
The formidable sex in Stealing Scarlett goes on for pages but actual intercourse isn't until near the end. That's not to say there isn't wonderfully written orgasmic scenes - there is.
The intelligent dialogue propels you through the story, as it's the main format of Stealing Scarlett. Reading Stealing Scarlett a second time around tamed the "he's a rich control freak" mentality, which in the beginning made me question if I enjoyed the story. That being said, Isabella Snow's characters work at bringing into the mix a readers all encompassing realm of emotions to the surface. All is well in the end for Scarlett - Chase -some like a machismo man.
This story comes with a warning: read the last chapter first.
Genre: BDSM Erotic Contemporary
Scarlett Montgomery has finally reached the top. Vice President of a highly respected investment bank, she's eager to leave her mark on a predominantly male industry. Calm, cool and collected, she's naturally dominant and well-suited to lead her male colleagues.
Until her elderly boss retires and they send in an arrogant, dominant, Neanderthal to replace him. To make matters worse, the caveman is also incredibly sexy, virile and commanding. Everything she'd want in a man, if she only knew how to unlock her submissive side.
But she doesn't.
That doesn't stop Chase Turner from trying, however.
In less than a day's time, he loosens every chink in her famous armor. Disappointed in her newly discovered vulnerability, Scarlett finds the agony unbearable. Torn between pride and desire, she deals with it the only way she knows how -- she quits her job and buys a ticket to Paris, where she intends to spend a sexy weekend forgetting all about him.
If she only knew how sexy it was going to be...starting with the trip to the airport.
