Promo: Giving In by Maya Banks (Spotlight/Giveaway)

About the Book

Genre: Erotic Romance, #2 in The Surrender Trilogy
Publisher: Berkley Trade
Release Date: May 6, 2014

Synopsis from Goodreads...

Kylie sees the way Jensen looks at her. The dark promise in his eyes. That rough edge of dominance she knows he possesses. But dominance is the one thing that frightens her above all else. She and her brother barely survived a childhood steeped in violence and abuse. She could never give up total control and submit to a man. Especially a man like Jensen. Could she?

Jensen sees the shadows in Kylie’s eyes. Knows he has to tread very carefully or risk losing any chance he has with her. All he wants is the opportunity to show her that dominance doesn’t equal pain, bondage or discipline. That emotional surrender is the most powerful of all, and that to submit—fully to him—will fulfill the aching void in her heart in a way nothing else ever will.

About the Series

The first book in the trilogy, Letting Go, was published in early February and debuted at #3 on the New York Times Combined Print & E-Book Bestseller List.

The second book in Maya's Surrender trilogy, Giving In, is available in stores and as an e-book on May 6th. The Surrender trilogy investigates three couples exploring BDSM relationships and each couple’s hope for a fulfilling love and enduring happiness.
