About the book:  

Wealthy computer genius Graham Winters is in love with a woman who won’t join him for a stingy cup of coffee. How can he prove he’s nothing like her jerk of an ex if she won’t give him a chance? Then he spots her at a BDSM club and devises a plan. During the day, he’s “that damn geek.” At night, he’s the masked Dom known as The Wolf.

When it comes to her love life, Lucy Sanchez has one rule—no geeks. Not even rich, good looking geeks. She’s attracted to Graham but rules are rules. Besides, she has her wolf, the mysterious Dom who makes her blood sing. Then she’s invited to a fairytale event at Pleasure Manor and this Little Red Riding Hood plans to enjoy every delicious moment with her big, bad Dom.


Lucy stared at him. “I’ve never had a partner as good as you.”

He lowered his head and kissed her. “We fit.” Sex. Dance. And even their work, though she didn’t know that. So many things in common, like hiking in the woods, searching for and finding birds and other wildlife, not to mention some spontaneous sex. Hug a tree took on a new meaning. His heart ached for him to tell her the truth and claim her openly.

The music faded, and he leaned back. “Lucy—”

The sound of loud clapping broke the spell. He swung them around and saw the Queen Domme standing at the open doorway. “You two are magnificent.” She glided into the room.

He bowed. “Thank you, Glorie.”

Lucy leaned into her wolf, unconsciously seeking his comforting embrace. She smiled awkwardly and fully admitted she was still embarrassed that the woman had joined them for a threesome. Every time she saw the woman, she’d remember how good the Domme was at giving pleasure and how her Wolf had known her well enough, cared enough, to make her fantasies come true.

“Tomorrow night, you’ll dance for us?”

Lucy inclined her head. “We’d love that.”

Minutes later, tired but satisfied, Lucy’s wolf her back through the garden and down one of several paths that led into the woods. Each couple had specific routes and play areas so as not to disturb anyone else with their weekend. 

AUTHOR Bio and Links:
Sydney St. Claire is the pseudonym of Susan Edwards, author of 14 Historical Native American/Western/Paranormal romances and the author of the popular “White” Series.

Sydney loves writing and sharing stories of love, happiness and dreams come true with her readers. She credits her mother for her writing success.  Encouraged to read as a child, she always preferred happy endings which meant romances were her favorite genre.  Sydney takes her readers into the world of erotica romance where her characters come together in explosive passion as they solve life’s problems and find true love along with the best sex our hero and heroine have ever experienced.

Sydney’s office is quite crowded with three dogs at her feet and five cats to keep her company while she writes. Three cats always insist on beds on her desk, barely leaving enough room for her monitor and keyboard. Life gets fun when all five insist on supervising…

When not writing, she enjoys crafts of all sorts including quilting, sewing, cross-stitch and knitting. She and her husband of 30 + years are avid gardeners. He takes care of the veggies, and Susan is in charge of the ‘pretties’. Her medicine wheel garden is in a contact state of war: flowers vs. weeds. Sadly, right now the weeds are wining…

While writing, she listens to a wide variety of music. Her current favorites are Blackmore’s Night and David Lanz.

A contemporary BDSM take on the children’s fairy tale, Little Red Riding Hood, Red & Her Big Bad Dom by Sydney St. Claire is definitely a red hot read.  A geek who’s secretly a Dom and a secretary who’s secretly a sub take center stage at a large private estate for a 3 day “play” session involving costumes, masked faces and even some dancing.  While the second book in the Once Upon a Dom series, this book can be read and enjoyed on its own.

A successful secretary to a very wealthy businessman, Lucy Sanchez has been burned by love in the past. Determined to enjoy her life and get what she wants out of it, she joined a BDSM club not realizing it was owned by her boss.  While she doesn’t like to mix business and pleasure she can’t help falling for one of the Doms.  A Dom who wears a mask and who she knows only as “The Wolf”.  Looking forward to an upcoming play session, Lucy refuses the attentions of Graham Winters, a geek and one of the VPs at work.

Determined to see Lucy outside of work, Graham Winters will do whatever it takes to make her change her mind.  When he sees her at his friend’s private BDSM club and realizes she’s a natural sub, he’s determined to be her Dom.  Hiding his identity under a mask, Graham becomes “The Wolf” and sets out to capture Lucy’s heart.

Ms. St. Claire does a pretty good job developing Lucy and Graham’s character right from the start.  Quickly jumping into their sexual relationship, Ms. St. Claire really pumps up the heat with several “fantasy” scenes where Graham aka “The Wolf” indulges Lucy’s desire for new experiences- even to the point of bringing in a third.  While their “romantic” relationship takes a back burner at the beginning, it soon becomes clear that Lucy and Graham have more than just amazing physical chemistry growing between them. . 

The secondary characters, mostly other people at the club or at their job, are fleshed out enough to be interesting and I enjoyed getting to know Jaimie, Lucy’s best friend, and Bryce, Lucy and Graham’s boss and the owner of the BDSM club.  Jaimie and Bryce  also happen to be the main characters in Cinderella & Prince Dom, the first book in this series.

Will Lucy figure out that her “Wolf” is really Graham?  Will Graham tell Lucy the truth before she decides to walk away?  Will the love developing between them get a chance to be a real relationship and not just play?  You’ll have to read Red & Her Big Bad Dom to find out. I enjoyed it and look forward to reading more of this author’s work.
