Columnist Bridget Hartwell agrees to write about BDSM to impress her new executive editor at Sultry, the “sex-positive magazine for sex-positive women.” Unfortunately, it’s a topic she knows absolutely nothing about…but if she ever wants that promotion, she’ll need to learn the ropes, fast.
English professor Max Harlow is active in the Dom/sub scene, but only for casual play—he’s never found his ideal partner: a woman who is his equal, but sexually submissive. When he’s asked to explain the lifestyle to his cute but obviously inexperienced neighbor, Max is certain it’s best to approach it academically—to keep things purely professional.
Until Bridget’s first article is a huge hit, giving her the perfect excuse to delve deeper into the naturally submissive side of her sexuality. But as their encounters intensify and each of her boundaries is skillfully pushed, Bridget must decide what this all means… for her identity, her career, and, most importantly, her future with Max.
What People Are Saying
“Purely Professional caught my attention from the very first page… The chemistry between Max and Bridget sizzles, making the sexual tension in this story very intense.” – Jennifer Porter, Romance Novel News – Read the Review
“Holy shit this was good! Ladies, if you aren’t familiar with BDSM, this is a perfect introduction to the lifestyle. For those among us who are familiar with it, this was probably one of the best I’ve read in this genre…The sex scenes weren’t just panty changing, they were oh my god battery changing…I’m definitely a permanent fan of Elia Winters after this one.” – Lorraine, Raw Books Online – Read the Review
