Getting involved with the new boss is never a good idea, but when he’s this sexy, how can she resist?
Silver medalist in the 2016 eLit Awards for Best Erotic Fiction.
Bashful Karma Mason has been too focused on college and now work to embrace her sexuality. Bullied as a child, she hides behind an unremarkable wardrobe and relegates herself to the shadows. But when her best friend convinces her to attend a charity benefit in Chicago wearing a stunning red dress that catches the eye of every man in the room, she discovers a surprising side to her personality. One that adores the attention but has no idea how to handle it.
Mark Strong, a wealthy Chicago businessman, is brimming with confidence. He’s in total control. Nothing—and no one—escapes his notice. But Mark carries a heavy, painful burden. After finding his fiancée with another man six years ago, he’s erected a fortress around his heart, unwilling to let himself fall in love again. When enchanting Karma snares his gaze from across the room, he has no idea she will shatter his carefully ordered life.
What starts out as a casual flirtation quickly turns into something much stronger and deeper. Mark is driven to know Karma, understand her…educate her, and Karma is his willing student, eager to experience the pleasure he promises. But when the student becomes the teacher, Mark has to make a choice between taking another chance on love or a future alone.
Recommended for fans of EL James, Sylvia Day, Lisa Renee Jones, and Sylvain Reynard.

Coming Back To You
Donya Lynne is the bestselling author of the award winning All the King's Men and Strong Karma Series and a member of Romance Writers of America. Making her home in a wooded suburb north of Indianapolis with her husband, Donya has lived in Indiana most of her life and knew at a young age she was destined to be a writer. She started writing poetry in grade school and won her first short story contest in fourth grade. In junior high, she began writing romantic stories for her friends, and by her sophomore year, she’d been dubbed Most Likely to Become a Romance Novelist. In 2012, she fulfilled her dream by publishing her first two novels and a novella. Her work has earned her two IPPYs, five eLit Awards, a USA Today Recommended Read, and numerous accolades, including two Smashwords bestsellers. When she’s not writing, she can be found cheering on the Indianapolis Colts or doing her cats’ bidding.
I was amazed, happy, and sad. I cried, smiled, and cheered. But mostly surprised! I highly recommend going on this journey with Mark and Karma. Read the complete series and fall in love all over again. Ms. Lynne changed the genre in this book from her normal. She makes you feel as if you're right there in the story. I loved, loved, loved this book.
I sat and read this book in a day. I fell asleep reading it and woke up to read it. I was captivated and extremely turned on. I haven’t read a book that could captivate my attention the way this book does. This book and ever other book in the Karma/Strong trilogy. I’m about to go read the books in the ‘King’s Men” Series now. Anticipation is killin me.
A MUST "read" from Donya Lynne!!
I am already a huge fan of Donya Lynne and couldn't wait for the release of this novel/series. She did NOT disappoint.
Karma Mason and Mark Strong have pasts that have made them who they are, with issues that affect how they approach relationships with others. What starts out as flirtation at a fundraising event, turns into a passionate connection when Mark is assigned to the company where Karma works. Neither is looking for a traditional relationship, but the best laid plans can easily be derailed when emotion is involved, even if it's not shared openly with the other.
This novel is filled with emotion and plenty of heat that left me wanting more. Looking forward to the next novel in the series.
