A trained submissive, Eleanor will do whatever her master commands...even spend a week with a stranger. Daniel has been a recluse since his wife's death, and Eleanor's lover thinks spending time with her will be therapeutic--especially since Daniel is also a Dom.
Despite her defiant streak, Eleanor can't resist giving in to Daniel's erotic demands. But while she'll let him have her body, she's determined to keep a guard around her heart. Even if Daniel wants to make Eleanor his permanently....
Seven Day Loan is the story of Eleanor before she became Nora Sutherland. She’s 23 years old, but she is still “Nora”. And what I mean by this is that she is still the same smart, brash woman who we first met in The Siren.
“Tell me your safe word, Eleanor,” Daniel commanded as he yanked her arms behind her back, bent her over the bed, and put bondage cuffs on each wrist.
“Doesn’t matter,” she said. “Do your worst. You won’t hear it.”
“Arrogant, aren’t we?”
However, Nora is not a switch, she is submissive…Soren’s submissive and although his name was not mentioned in the book (Eleanor’s decision), you know who he was.
“Not Arrogant as all,” she countered. “Just very well-trained, sir”.
In Seven Day Loan, we start with Eleanor being very upset with her master because he asked her to stay with a friend Daniel while he is away for the week. Her master wants her to help Daniel after the lost of his wife, who was submissive as well and died three years earlier from cancer. He needs help moving on and Eleanor’s master believes he has figured out a way to help him.
This novella was only 39 pages, but barley misses a beat. Tiffany Reisz kept me riveted with this story of lost, pain and finding your way again. I liked the story and of course, its characters. You get a small glimpse of Nora before she left Soren. Even at the tender age of 23, Eleanor wants S all to herself and doesn't want to share him with the church.
“You’re in love with a priest, Eleanor. What did you expect?”
Daniel was a lovable character and I liked him right off the back…but of course, like many after time spent with Eleanor he falls in love with her and wants her to stay with him after their week is up.
“Then just say ‘no’ to me. Let me ask you to say and just tell me ‘no’. No frostbite or theatrics required.”
If you have read the main books in Tiffany’s Original Sinner’s series, you should read the novellas. You really do get a glimpse of her now famous characters and possibly understand them a little more.
