Book Description

Part One of "The Power to Please," a dark and sensual serial series about shattering loss and redeeming love

Nonnie's ready to take chances ... perhaps too ready.

Recently-divorced Nonnie Crawford craves a new beginning -- it arrives in the form of an enigmatic, dark-eyed stranger she dubs The Businessman. He seduces her with a sizzling introduction to the thrill of submission. As the days pass, she can't forget him or the way he made her feel. She seeks him out and soon finds herself at a BDSM club. There, she meets Michael Weston, a handsome, charming playboy who's keen to seize the reins left dangling by the absent Businessman.

Who knows where one night of passion might lead?

Nonnie Crawford journeys into the alluring but sometimes dangerous realm of BDSM. She yearns to submit herself to a powerful, dominant man and two Doms vie for that submission, the enigmatic Businessman and the charming Playboy.

Nonnie's choices prove the difference between perfect bliss and devastating ruin. Truth and trust. She'll need both as she struggles to earn indestructible love, and to claim, with that love, the ultimate power to please.

Editorial Reviews

Review

5 Stars -- "It was as if Ms. Ward took a look into the mind of someone casually interested in exploring BDSM and laid all the hotness out for them like a buffet ... The first encounter between Nonnie and The Businessman was absolutely off the charts erotic!" Silla Beaumont, Just Erotic Romance Reviews

"Great first book. It ticked all the boxes -- hot, mysterious, engrossing. It gets the seal of approval from this little black (horny) duck." Jodie, Fab, Fun and Tantalizing Reads

"I just fell into this series and loved the blend of mature woman/insecure submissive that is Nonnie. She wants so much to find that all-encompassing love any gal dreams of, and the sensory overload she experiences with both Michael and Gibson take her to a place she mistakes for love, in some ways." Veronica, V's Reads

5 Stars -- "This conclusion only whets the appetite to see what will happen to Nonnie next. Looking forward to the next installment." Alberta, Manic Readers

I got this book when it was a free offering from Amazon. I found it to be well written and I was quickly drawn in. I bought the 2nd and 3rd in this series and can't wait for the 4th and final book to be out. Deena Ward is an author I will be watching out for.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not a book at all January 20, 2014
By linliv3
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This author describes this work as a four book series. In reality book one is not a complete book at all. This "book" is the first part of one story and if you want the rest of the story you must purchase three more "books". Quite frankly this author is not good enough to command that kind of money for a story like this. I will not be purchasing the other three books.

1.0 out of 5 stars Yet another so-so book with a cliffhanger ending. July 21, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Businessman's Tie was a passable read. While some have criticized the way the author demands that the reader suspend their disbelief, this is, after all a sexual fantasy book. Realism is not required. . I have two objections to the book.

Number one: It is written in the first person. For those of us who wish to immerse ourselves with the protagonist and "step into their skin" as it were, first person writing prevents this. One is forced to be the protagonist's best friend sitting in the coffee shop listening to her BFF's tale of woe, or joy instead. If you aren't into first person novels, forget this one.

Numer two: The author does not give us a complete tale. The author calls the book one is a series...what a lovely euphemism for "I'm going to leave you hanging at the end of this book to try an force you to pay a lot of money to see how it all turns out." Sadly I find the first book resistible enough to forgo paying money to see how it ends.

Thanks, but no thanks.

Give me a writer like Chloe Cox who gives me an entire story in each book including the initial freebie. Now, there's an author who believes in herself, her talent and in her readers. Her Club Volare Series is enjoyable, and I don't mind paying to read more of her work

Think about it, author, when you write your next set of novels.

Next time, perhaps you'll call your novels SERIAL novels? Then we'll know that you plan to leave us hanging.

4.0 out of 5 stars Short but HOT May 16, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Nonnie Crawford is celebrating her divorce and is ready for some fun. Across the bar Nonnie catches the eye of The Businessman and he introduces her to a world of submission. Unable to forget him she visits a sex club hoping to find him, but what she finds is Michael Weston. Ready to pick up the reins where The Businessman left off, Nonnie now has a decision to make.

Holy BDSM Batman! This short novel burnt up my Nook. This is a short in a series of 4 books that tells the tale of Nonnie Crawford in her discovery of her submissive side. She must decided between The Businessman and Michael Weston. Only one makes her burn and the other is willing to give her what she wants. I will definitely be continuing this series even tho they are short.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well written March 12, 2014
By Candace
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was well written and enticing. I downloaded this book for free and once I finished it I bought the series to finish. The series is less expensive to purchase than the individual books so make sure to look for it. I read a lot of books and download free kindle books daily. Me purchasing a book series is saying something because I rarely will shell out money from our tight budget for books and can name 4 or 5 books in the last 3 years I have actually paid for. The material is erotic and interesting. Graphic material does require some discretion.

2.0 out of 5 stars Leaves you feeling disturbed. August 1, 2014
By Pnkfan
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It was just so far out there from the start. I just didn't ever feel like the woman enjoyed the things happening to her, it made me think of someone that has some major issues. Everything about this story screamed abuse even though she chose to be part of it. The way she left each encounter feeling used, or humiliated just made me feel upset for her. I knew by the end I would not be reading any other books in this series because I didn't like the feeling it left inside my by reading them. This had nothing to do with love or even lust.

4.0 out of 5 stars Oh man....If I could be Nonnie...man would I June 19, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I was immediately intrigued to read this book for three reason: 1) the synopsis, 2) the cover, and 3) BDSM. This is my first book of Deena Ward and I will just say this now...I'm a fan and will continue to read and anticipate her work.

Let's get into it.

I loved everything about this book. Doesn't take long to get to the first steamy sex scene of the book and I'm glad because after reading the synopsis all I could think about was what specifically was going to happen (in detail) in this hallway in the back of a bar. And I was very much satisfied and unsatisfied at the same time, both in good ways.

So the first time we meet said "Businessman" he does wonderful things to Nonnie, but yet leaves her wanting. The whole scene was hot and got my blood flowing just like an erotic novel should. The descriptions of the scene were very detailed and painted a perfect picture in my head. Also had my adrenaline running high as if I was right there watching it take place or imaging myself as Nonnie. So when "The Businessman" left Nonnie wanting...well can you guess it I was left wanting as well...to know what the hell was going to happen next. Knowing the specific details of that scene just hooked me in even further.

Some of my favorite parts were Nonnie's inner dialogue. Felt like I was reading the way I talk and converse with my friends on paper. Some of her inner dialect had be cracking up. I loved it because there are some intense moments and a little comical relief is very well placed. If the whole book were serious it would have lost its appeal even though the main appeal is SEX.

I loved that even though the book is titled The Businessman's Tie, it wasn't all about one man in Nonnie's life.

More About the Author

I think nothing could be finer than having a job which demands I spend my days in worlds of my own creation.

I've completed a BDSM erotic romance series, "The Power to Please." Try "The Businessman's Tie" for free. The three other books in the series are available individually and are bundled together in a money-saving collection.

I also write sexy short stories under the name Anwen Stiles. From menage romance to steamy erotica, most of these titles can be borrowed by Kindle Unlimited members.

I live in the Midwest USA with my partner and a rowdy, plump beagle.
