A week-long getaway…
City girl Claudia Cade’s carefree life is plunged into chaos when a camping trip with her brother in the national forests of Northern California turns into a deadly dash for her survival.

A solitary world turned upside down…

Nature photographer Shepard Olsen has resigned himself to a quiet existence, with only his dog by his side, until a woman in need of his protection shows up on his doorstep and throws his universe into disarray.

Two lives linked by tragedy…

Claudia is desperate to heal from her traumatic loss, but can’t stop thinking about her run-in with evil….or the grizzled mountain man whose quick thinking and good aim saved her life. When she shows up on Shep’s doorstep again, she finds she isn’t the only one who can’t move on.

… saved by bliss.

The two begin an intense, passionate relationship of Dominance and submission, pleasure and pain, but with dark memories haunting them and decisions about the future rapidly approaching, Claudia can’t help but wonder…how long can they be each other’s haven?

*** WARNING: This book contains a sexual relationship between a fashionista and a cranky mountain man who are dealing with physical and emotional trauma. And a very big, cuddly dog.***




Bookbub Review

I love this book so much. I love Shep. I love Claudia. I love Shep & Claudia together. I might hate Rebekah Weatherspoon for putting me through everything that Claudia and Shep go through to get to their HEA – but it was glorious and I can’t find one critical thing to say about it. So, I’m pretty sure I love Rebekah Weatherspoon too.


Goodreads Review

What can you expect from a series called Beards & Bondage? Unsubstantial BDSM smut, right? Wrong! Surprisingly, this was a lot more than just that.
It was a touching story of loss and grief, fighting your inner demons by sharing your pain with the only person who knows what you're going through and trying to comfort one another by any means necessary.

This was such a great blend of steam, romance and tragedy, it totally took me off guard.
