Punishing himself for a horrific past that is not his fault, bestselling author Alexander Montgomery seeks redemption and love—and perhaps he will find it.
Famous author though he may be, Alexander Montgomery is not someone you take home to meet Mother. Seriously flawed, damaged by a horrific past, he’s trying hard to claw his way back to normality. But how can anyone respect what he truly is? His therapy involves regular sessions at Study in Scarlet, an exclusive S&M club.
Then comes Sage. Tall, with black hair and blue eyes, an up-and-coming actor with impossible charm and boy-next-door good looks, he’s the perfect choice to play the leading man in a TV adaptation of Alex’s last best-seller. Even more, he is a man you introduce to your family. Which Alex would do—if he weren’t taken by another man who offers the punishments Alex prays will wipe away the past and make him the person he wants to be. Yet, perhaps there is another path to redemption. If only the solution would reach out and touch him.

No one ever said love was easy and for sage/Alexander it's not. Alexander's demons are heartbreaking. They have left a broken man that has to use S&M as a source of therapy. Sage coming into Alexander's life was refreshing at moments. The banter between these two sometimes made you forget about the darkness but trust me it was only temporary. Sage also had his past to deal with at moments. Though he wasn't as broken as Alexander his scars ran deep.
This love story was one of survival. These two men were a life line for each other in some serious dark moments. Their love story wasn't roses/chocolates but it was still unforgettable. Great job mrs. Nicol!
