Angel in his arms . . . Devil at her heels

One last, no-strings night of indulgence. That's all Tristan wants before he begins a much-needed new chapter in his life. Instead he finds an innocent angel in pink who brings him to his knees.

Isabella is done hiding from the world . . . and her haunting memories. Discovering courage in the arms of a perfect stranger, she finally lets go and sheds her inhibitions.

To Isabella's shock, she soon learns that Tristan is more than her mystery man-he's her professor. But Tristan isn't the only person who's found Isabella on campus. A dark figure from her past has come back for her. Now Tristan will risk anything to protect Isabella . . . even if it costs him his life.

Everything about this story was exceptional.  Tristan and Isabella are by far my favorite fictional couple.  They both had a haunted past that was threatening to reemerge and tear apart what was building into an amazing relationship filled with trust and most importantly love.  In addition to the amazing sex scenes, there was suspense and a twist that I didn’t see coming.  But let’s talk about those sex scenes, shall we?  Oh. My. Gosh!  Talk about out-of-this world chemistry! The sex in this book is OFF THE CHARTS and oh so HOT and delicious! It’s edgy, steamy and intense.  Oh, did I mention HOT? The sex didn’t overpower the story though, but complemented it and made it breathtaking! 

It has been forever since a book has consumed me, but At His Mercy did just that - controlling my life until the very last page was read – it was impossible to put it down!  It’s a story that grabbed me from the very first page and consumed every waking moment.  It’s superbly well-written and flows effortlessly.  I am truly excited and totally in love with the start of this series and will most definitely be picking up the next installment when it releases.

This book won’t be for everyone, but if you love erotic romance that includes some light BDSM, an enthralling plot and a happy ending that will leave you utterly satisfied, then pick up At His Mercy.  Shelly Bell has some serious talent with her amazing storytelling ability and is an author I will be adding to my list of favorites. This story is well deserving of a five-star rating and one that I would not hesitate to recommend.

“You want to know what I’m going to do to you if you consent to playing with me tonight?” His hot breath tickled the shell of her ear. “Anything I want.” He bit down on her lobe, causing a slight sting before soothing it with his tongue. “And what I want is to turn that creamy white skin of yours pink as your T-shirt. Then, when you’re wet and throbbing, and you’re out of your mind with the need to come, I’ll finger-fuck that pussy of yours until you see stars. How’s that to start? Does it meet with your approval?”
Holy hell in a handbasket.
The image sent a flash of heat to her lower belly, rocking her off her axis and causing her to wobble, her knees suddenly weak as a newborn foal’s. Between her thighs, the muscles clenched and rippled with what she swore was a mini orgasm. “Yes.” She coughed, clearing the rasp of arousal that had formed in her throat. “I can honestly say I approve wholeheartedly.”
His expression turned hungry as his eyes raked over her from head to toe. For a moment, she had the urge to flee just to see if he’d run after her. Pressing her hand to her chest, she shivered, the idea of it surprisingly arousing. What would he do to her when he caught her?
He didn’t give her the chance to find out, snatching his black duffel bag off the floor before interlacing his fingers with hers and dragging her through the throngs of people.
She couldn’t help but wonder what was in that bag of his that would turn her skin pink. “Where are you taking me?” she asked, her heart hammering wildly.
“Somewhere we can talk.”
Talking was the last thing she wanted to do. Her body was hovering on the edge of the unknown, and ready to make that giant leap. “Couldn’t we skip the talking?”
Tristan placed a hand on the base of her spine, directing her past the kitchen. Although the gesture probably meant nothing, it felt almost…territorial, as if he was staking his claim to her. “Safety first. This is your first time and you deserve the full experience. Besides, negotiating is part of the fun. Think of it as cerebral foreplay.”
He was right. She knew nothing about him other than his first name. To hand over her submission without at least having a conversation about safe words and limits would be foolish. But negotiation, fun? She could think of several other things she’d rather do with her mouth at that moment.

A sucker for a happy ending, Shelly Bell writes sensual romantic thrillers. When she's not working her day job, taking care of her family, or writing, you'll find her reading the latest romance.
