Every passion has its price . . .

Journalist Sophie Ryder has been following Emery Lockwood's story since she was a little girl. There has always been something in his haunted eyes that she couldn't resist and now, when she's certain he holds the key to solving a string of kidnappings, she'll do anything to speak to him. Even if it means venturing deep into the seductive world of the Gilded Cuff, a luxurious BDSM club on Long Island's Gold Coast and Emery's personal playground.

From the moment Sophie enters his shadowy, sensual domain, Emery Lockwood knows this tantalizing new little sub was meant to belong to him. However, Sophie wants more from Emery than just pleasure . . . she wants his past. And that is something he isn't willing to give-no matter who is asking. But every moment he spends with Sophie, Emery feels his control slipping and he knows it's only a matter of time before he surrenders to her heart, body, and soul.

Tormented by their pasts, yet enthralled by nights of the most decadent pleasure neither of them has ever experienced before, will Sophie and Emery be able to find the release that only surrender can bring?

Book 1 in the Surrender series

"The Gilded Cuff was a dramatic, sexy, and suspenseful romance between two people drowning in survivor's guilt. Lauren Smith crafted an intriguing plot with strong secondary characters. Ms. Smith also created strong women who were brave and courageous; they were unwilling to sit on the sidelines while the men confronted the danger. Fans of Lisa Renee Jones would enjoy the sexy mystery with BDSM relationships." -- Harlequin Junkie

    I couldn't finish the book, found the narrators voice very boring and my mind would wander off.

    No character development and was super predictable and boring.....normally I check the time left on a novel as it progresses cause I don’t want it to end but with this I couldn’t wait for it to end !! Narrator can sometimes make up for bad writing but I thought she read to quickly and her male main character voice was almost feminine at times....bad overall !!

    Not a fan of the reader. But the book is pretty good
