Knowing the Ropes

Length: 313 pages4 hours


No strings attached—but plenty of rope

Domestic-violence counselor Selene wants to explore her BDSM fantasies safely and sanely. She recruits handsome Dom Nick to help her learn the ropes (and floggers, and paddles). Neither one seeks more than a kinky good time. After a fiancé Selene didn’t love enough and a slave Nick loved too much, they’ve both sworn off romance temporarily.

That trick never works. Erotic bondage leads to an emotional bond they both try to ignore. But they agreed to no commitments. Right?

Helping Nick’s ex Natalie escape a situation that’s anything but safe, sane, and consensual makes them realize they’re a great team outside the bedroom. But can this fragile, still unspoken relationship survive damaged, needy Natalie?

This book was previously published by Samhain. It has not been significantly changed.


Teresa Noelle Roberts started writing stories in kindergarten and she hasn’t stopped yet. A prolific author of short erotica, she’s also a published poet and fantasy writer—but BDSM-spiced contemporaries, hot paranormals, and spicy science fiction romances are her favorites. She’s hard at work writing the kinky tales of hot dominant guys and smart women who submit to them—but not anyone else!—and also creating  heroes who are truly "out of this world."

Teresa is a crunchy granola girl who enjoys belly dance, yoga, medieval re-creation, playing in the ocean, cooking, and growing more vegetables than she and her husband can possibly eat. She shares her home in southern Massachusetts with her husband, a Leo who works in law enforcement, and two overstuffed cats, who deserve their own shout-out as inspirations for her works. She and her husband often plan vacations around food, history, and/or proximity to water.
