Steve McCoy only keeps a submissive for a month. But that may change when Kelly Markham walks into his life.
One of the best series ever! "The characters are so well written; you can’t help but fall in love with all of them and feel like you are right there in the moment with them. These books make you feel like you are reading about a real life family and when they hurt, you hurt, and when they are happy you are happy. . . . Would I read more by this author: without a doubt yes!!!" (A. Adams, Wicked Reads Review Team - Five Stars)
"The Love Under Construction series is probably one of my favorite series ever, definitely in my top 5. Renovating a Heart did the impossible and topped the last book. . . . Another very well written, five star book in this series. There's something about these books that draw you in and keep you there and make you fall in love with the characters and stories." (Erica S. - Five Stars)
"Once again, I'm giving another one of Deanndra's books five stars. She deserves it. Her writing is so absolutely amazing, and addicting. She always seems to pull me into her stories from just the first few pages. Renovating A Heart will definitely be on my top reads! I'm looking forward to book four in the series. I'm not sure how long I will be able to wait." (Olivia H. - Five Stars)

Steve McCoy has managed to keep his hideously painful past locked away and turned himself into a successful attorney and businessman. The blond Viking of a man has everything any guy could want - nice home, nice apartment, beautiful luxury car, plenty of cash, and access to all the subs he could ever want through the BDSM club he owns, Eden's Gate.
Kelly Markham's past was painful too, but she's managed to power on through. When her friend Nikki sends her to Steve for legal assistance and Kelly discovers he owns a club, she can't wait to visit. Adrift since her late Dom passed away, she's eager to find a way back into the lifestyle, and to possibly get to know the hot, blue-eyed hunk.
Steve can offer her that by signing a D/s contract with her, with one catch: It's only for one month. And that's fine with both of them when things go awry initially. But as they give it another chance and things start to heat up, each of them begins to wonder what a permanent arrangement could offer. And neither wants to broach the subject, expose their true feelings, and risk heartbreak and pain.
As the month rolls by, Kelly makes a discovery about Steve's past and sets out to help him overcome his demons, a thing Steve considers the ultimate betrayal. But in the process, she unleashes one so deadly that someone will have to pay, Unfortunately, that person is her. And it looks doubtful that she'll get out of the demon's grasp with her life.
But an angry Steve refuses to open himself up to help her. Will Kelly survive the torture she has to endure? And will Steve come to his senses in time to save the one person who's finally made the commitment to love him?
Renovating a Heart, Book 3 in the Love Under Construction series, is full of hot D/s sex with a healthy dose of menage, violence, suspense, and heartbreak. And it's a story of hope and forgiveness great enough to give the most jaded a reason to believe in love. Read it following The Groundbreaking (prequel), Laying a Foundation (Book 1), and Tearing Down Walls (Book 2), to really get to know the characters intimately and follow their story.
