Initiation—Book Synopsis 

A recently widowed grandmother, Jane Browne never dreamed she'd find a new love when she went on an exploratory visit to Prometheus, an exclusive BDSM club. She has to overcome the burden of low self-esteem and physical difficulties as well as the hostility and prejudice of a rejected rival for her Master's affections.
Master Angus Scott has a tragedy in his past and is determined he does not want a permanent relationship. He is strongly attracted to Jane on sight and finds himself falling in love with her as he watches her struggles, even if he is reluctant to admit it.
He introduces her to the BDSM lifestyle, forcing her to conquer her fears. Gradually she regains her confidence, defeats her rival, and seizes her chance for a happily ever after with the striking Scot who woos her with soft Gaelic words of love.
 Book Review of Initiation

Jane loved her husband of forty years, but secretly longed for more than vanilla sex. After he passes away, she submerges herself in reading BDSM novels and her desires to experience the life continue to grow. When a friend convinces Jane to tag along to the BDSM Club Prometheus, Jane struggles with her insecurities of being a grand-mother with a not-so perky body surrounded by much younger, more shapely women, while she undergoes teaching of the lifestyle by one very handsome, understanding Dom in a super sexy kilt.

Angus is a silent partner in Club Prometheus. He takes a sub now and then for a night, but has yet to find one he wants to keep. He's instantly drawn to Jane and stages it so that he is the one who takes her teachings in hand. Though a Dom, Angus has a gentle, understanding nature that helps Jane through her insecurities and fears while he's training her to be the submissive he desires.

Initiation is a fantastic story that wonderfully reminds us that love and sexual desires don't disappear as we grow older. I loved how Angus took the time to be so caring and sensitive toward Jane's hang-ups about having an overweight body that is showing the signs of aging. She is beautiful in his eyes and he makes sure she knows it in everything he does. His training is firm, yet not overpowering, and it draws the couple closer, penetrating the heart. Compassion and heat seep from the pages of Initiation and left this reader with the certainty that this couple had definitely found their happily ever after.
