Kristen Anders is starting her life over again after divorcing her cheating husband. An author of several 'vanilla' romance novels, she spiced up her latest one involving BDSM and it became a best-seller. Now she's researching the subject for her follow-up book and manages to get a tour of the elite, private sex club, The Covenant, and runs into the one person she never expected to see there.

Devon "Devil Dog" Sawyer is intrigued by a cute brunette he meets at a friend's Irish pub and does something he hasn't done in over twelve years. He asks her out on a date. While it might seem strange to most, Devon's only relationships since he was twenty-four have started and ended in the same place–a BDSM club.

What was supposed to be a single weekend of mutual pleasure and dirty sex, turns into something more. But while they fight their growing connection, a killer has Devon in his sights and Kristen may end up as collateral damage. Will they survive with their lives and hearts intact? 

Kristen is an author who has stepped into the waters of “romance with an edge.” The only problem, she knows nothing more than vanilla sex and barely knows that! So when a fan provides her with an opportunity to visit an honest to goodness sex club, she is ecstatic. But when her professional life collides with her personal one, can Kristen accept her needs and the man who can fulfill them? In Leather and Lace by Samantha Cole we meet Kristen and Devon. Kristen is not quite sure about her sexuality but that is about to change. Devon sparks her libido but he is hiding a secret. Can he limit his sex to strictly vanilla? Does he even need to? I loved meeting both Kristen and Devon. They appeared so different but in actuality were more alike than either expected. Devon was a strong alpha male. Kristen was a strong female hiding a sexually submissive nature. I loved the relationship that grew between Devon and Kirsten. Kirsten was a bit unsure as to what to expect as she allowed Devon into not only her body but her heart. Devon was determined to protect the woman blossoming right before his eyes.
Ms. Cole gave us a story that was well written and full of wonderful characters. Devon and Kirsten were fully developed and felt real. The attraction and chemistry was believable. I also enjoyed the secondary characters. They added an additional layer to the story. I thoroughly enjoyed the first in Samantha Cole’s Trident Security series and look forward to seeing where she will take us next.
