When Katrina Masters returns to Fairfax, Texas, after seventeen years away, she finds things have changed. The guy she had a crush on at high school is now running a sex club and is a Dom to boot! Common sense tells her to steer well clear, but she’s sorely tempted by his job offer.

Self-made man Colt Donahue is a strict Dom. His business, Club Fusion, is a great success, and he’s not about to let the local Sheriff or the narrow-minded people of Fairfax close him down. He’s here to stay.

From the moment he sees Kat, he wants her. Just one look in her sultry hazel eyes, and Colt knows the sassy, outspoken woman is for him. Nothing would excite him more than making her submit to his will.

Colt shows Katrina what a Dom is really capable of, but can he tame the firebrand into complete submission?

Professional Reviews

5 STARS: "What a wonderful pairing of a hero and heroine Jan Bowles gives us in the form of Katrina Masters and Colt Donahue. Two characters that have a flaws which compliment each other. Katrina has made some bad choices in her life. Choices that follow her to Fairfax, Texas. When she returns back home to Fairfax, it is under a few well-placed lies. So much so it gets her into hot water. Basically making a problem bigger than what it should have been and running into the hero on whom she has had a crush on since she was fourteen makes for some fun times. I liked Kat because she was feisty yet she had a vulnerability that showed she wasn't truly the bitch she had to portray. Colt was sexy as hell, a cowboy and a Dom. What a wonderful combo. I loved his Alpha attitude but I also loved it that he didn't rush Katrina into anything. The right Dom knows exactly what 'his' submissive needs and Colt knew most definitely what Kat wanted and needed. The sex between the two was sizzling, and with the additions of the sex toys, it had me wanting more. The conflict within the story was beautifully done and added enough tension to the story to push it along to a wonderful conclusion. Loved this book. Now I am wishing I had had the chance to read 1 and 2 in the Guilty Pleasures series. I do recommend this book for those who want a little taste of a Dom in their lives. I will be on the lookout for more from this author. Five stars for BDSM, the Dom and his sub." -- Ebony Dreams, The Romance Reviews

5 STARS: "Kat has a bit of a chip on her shoulder. Maybe she is entitled, but Colt is determined to give her the discipline she needs to straighten out. Kat has come back to her hometown after 17 years. She owes a lot of money, has leg-breaking people looking for her, and finds that her high school crush, Colt, owns a sex club. To make matters worse, she has to accept Colt's offer of a job—in the sex club. It turns out that could have been the best thing that ever happened to her. Love, freedom, and release—she finds it all in Colt, her dom. The sex is scorching hot. The discipline teases the reader. Wow. This is a winner!" -- Reviews R Us

5 ROSES: "This was a VERY entertaining read. I just felt the need to put that out there before we get down to the nitty gritty!! Ok, here we go. The story opens with Katrina Masters who comes back to her home town due to her mom passing away. She's pretending to be more successful then she really is because she's ashamed and embarrassed at how her life turns out. She's made some really bad and really dumb decisions and is counting on her mom's inheritance, which she finds out she doesn't get. Then we have Colt Donahue, who recently opened a BDSM club which the town is not too happy about. Especially the town sheriff, who becomes increasingly annoying as the story goes on. After a chance meeting between Katrina and Colt, he offers her a job at his club as a hostess, greeter, hat check girl. She accepts, and that's when the story takes off. I really liked some of the plot lines in this story, it makes both characters more likeable. Especially Katrina. She's made some really bad decisions and I still can't figure out her reasoning for them. I also think both character's vulnerabilities makes them more endearing and they stay with me longer. I love that!! Don't you? The chemistry is hot, Colt is hot, the story is hot." -- Lori, Romancing the Book

4 KISSES: "Down on her luck, Katrina Masters sucks up her pride coming back to claim her inheritance after her mother dies. Blowing into town in a fancy car, she catches the eye of Colt Donahue, a man she had a crush on, and she is quite surprised to discover he’s the owner of a BDSM club. Colt is intrigued by Katrina and realizing she’s in need of a hand up, offers her a job, which she politely declines. When Katrina finds out her mother left her nothing and is penniless, will she turn to Colt, hoping the job offer still stands? Jan Bowles continues her Guilty Pleasures series with its third book, Tamed by the Dom. Katrina has been bogged down from her past for so long she’s allowed herself to believe she’s powerless to change it. When she comes home to settle her mother’s estate, she hopes her inheritance will be the ticket to prosperity and is crushed to learn her mother didn’t leave her a cent. Knowing she’s got bills to pay, she hopes the job offer Colt extended is still available. Colt for his part is pleased to see Katrina grace his door and glad she’s going to help him with the club sensing she has a great business sense. At first, Katrina keeps to the more tame places in the club, not wanting to incorporate kink into her life. As she becomes more familiar with the club’s patrons and sees Colt isn’t out for a cheap roll in the hay with her, she becomes more curious, sending out vibes making Colt feel she may want to experiment. Colt is more than happy to go on a D/s journey with Katrina in Tamed by the Dom as the two bare their souls showing their vulnerabilities. I liked how Colt honored Katrina to gradually add BDSM into their growing relationship as Katrina came to the conclusion that she needed to submit to him to be fulfilled. I hope Ms. Bowles returns to this setting because a few of the club patrons are worthy of stories of their own." -- Victoria,TwoLips Reviews

4 STARS: "Katrina grew up in Texas, but has been gone for many years. She always wanted everyone, including her mother to think that she was wildly successful in her new life far away, so she wove a fanciful history for herself. She arrives for her mother's funeral driving a fancy car, and with a fancy new wardrobe, to keep up the façade. Unfortunately, the money she used was from a loan shark, but Kat hopes the inheritance from her mother will pay back the loan. Things don't go as she planned, and she finds herself broke, without a job or a place to stay. She knows that her childhood crush, Colt, now runs a sex club, which caters to varying types of sexual appetites, including BDSM. She also knows that he is a Dom. He is the only person to offer her both a job and a residence, and although she is drawn to him, she isn't drawn to the life he lives. Kat is caught between Colt's appetite for her, and the loan shark's relentless pursuit of his money. Colt will pay back the loan if she will submit to him. As D/s goes, Tamed by the Dom is relatively benign, and other than a spanking scene and some light bondage, there is no harsh BDSM in it. Colt is kind and wants only to care for Kat, if she can get rid of her prickly attitude and learn that people won't only love her for her material possessions. Colt's character is goal-driven, and his main conflict is trying to make Kat see that she is a worthwhile person. Kat has many conflicts within, and her goals aren't clear except for survival, until much later in the book. Colt's other conflict is a nosy sheriff who is trying to catch him in something illegal so he can close the sex club down. The love story is good, the bondage and spanking are well done, and the conflicts are solved satisfactorily together." -- Alberta, Manic Readers Reviews

4 FALLEN ANGELS: "Tamed by the Dom is the third book in the Guilty Pleasures series. Katrina has been away from Fairfax, Texas, for almost two decades. She's back to settle her mother's estate after she passes away. Down on her luck, she really needs a job. But she certainly never expected to get one in a BDSM club; run by Colt, the man she used to have a crush on in school! Colt is almost run off the road by a sleek jaguar and follows the driver into town. He sees this beautiful woman emerge, and while exchanging heated words with her, realizes she's a former classmate. Boy, has the duckling become a swan. Their repartee further compels Colt to seek out this woman. When she comes to Colt seeking a job at the one place the backwater town wants to close down because they see it as a sex club, he sets out to give Katrina a taste of D/s, Colt-style. Katrina has all the requisite characteristics of a romance heroine. She's been burned by men in the past, she's down on her luck, and she's completed her moth-to-butterfly transition. Colt, on his part, is self-made, handsome, sexy-as-sin, and goes after her akin to predator for prey. He's patient for her to come around, but not too patient, finally making a move to make her his own. I thought him educated by the way he carried himself and the way he said some of the things he did. Then, his speech would revert to less educated and it was a little confusing how the author wanted to portray him. However, the heat between the couple was delicious and subplots and conflicts were just enough that this incongruity became a smaller distraction; but it was still there. It won't prevent me from picking up another Guilty Pleasures book, that's for sure. In fact, I just selected another from this author's series and can't wait to get started." -- Bella, Fallen Angel Reviews

4 BLUE RIBBONS: "Katrina wanted to ensure that the town's people saw that a new successful Katrina had emerged. What she kept hidden was the fact that all of her possessions had all been purchased with money from a loan shark. She figured that with the money she was left from her mother's estate, it would be enough to repay the loan. Colt Donahue had built a BDSM club known as Club Fusion on his land in Fairfax. The town was in an uproar that such an unholy establishment existed. They were determined to see him shut down. Colt doesn't let the local sheriff scare him away into closing down his business. The venture has been a very lucrative investment. Since high school, Katrina had a secret crush on Colt Donahue. When she almost runs over him, she gets an up close look at the man he had become as an adult. When Colt sees Katrina, his Dom instincts immediately go into overdrive. He knows that he wants to make her his submissive. When he learns that Katrina's mother has left her penniless, he offers her a job at his club to get a better opportunity to turn his Dom fantasy into a reality. At first Katrina refuses Colt's job offer, but she knows she has no other means to pay her debt. Will Colt convince Katrina to allow him to give him a personal training session in the BDSM lifestyle? Jan Bowles has once again produced an award winning novel! TAMED BY THE DOM is another great adventure in the BDSM world. Jan Bowles is an author who definitely knows how to write a sizzling BDSM novel. I highly recommend any of her books to anyone who is searching for an author who can unlock the mysteries of the BDSM world." -- Suzie, Romance Junkies Reviews

4 STARS: "Katrina Masters returns home after her mother dies, her pride eats at her as she tries to show the small town that she made a success of her life, which is far from the truth. When she bumps into Colt Donahue all of her resentments flare and he happens to become the target. Colt, a dom, has created Club Fusion that caters to those with more adventuresome sexual needs, which unfortunately puts him as the town pariah but it leaves him unfazed except when it comes to Katrina. Intriguing story, Katrina is in dire need of help and even though she loudly protests Colt’s offers, a seed of curiosity continues to grow as she finds herself not only accepting his job offer but wondering what it would be like to be under Colt’s guidance. Colt is willing to give Katrina some slack, because he knows underneath her hard exterior she just needs the right person to trust, and it’s him." -- Emily, Sensual Reads Reviews

Story Excerpt


"My guests won’t be wearing much. I hope that won’t bother you?"

Kat laughed. "I’m not a shrinking violet, Colt. I can handle myself." She raised a brow as her gaze swept over him. "I had thought you would be wearing a lot less yourself." Her flippant remark almost made her blush.

"Thought or hoped?" He smiled when she didn’t answer. "I just monitor what’s going on, see that everything is legal and aboveboard. I don’t get involved with the customers."


"No, as I said, I like to get to know someone first." Colt glanced at his watch. "The first of our guests should be arriving soon. If you need me during the evening, I’ll be around making sure everything is running smoothly."

Two hours into her shift, Kat realized she was enjoying herself. The guests were friendly, and the time slipped by quickly as she took their coats and answered any questions they had. When a prospective new club member telephoned with a query she couldn’t answer, she went in search of Colt.

The heady beat of the music drifted through the club as she went first to the bar and then the nightclub. Everyone looked happy, the occasional laughter bursting through. Colt had been right. The bar was the most popular area, where groups of people congregated, apparently deep in conversation. Surely they couldn’t all be talking about sex? He wasn’t in either place, so she took a deep breath and pushed open the door to level three.

All sorts of moans and groans came from every direction. She peered in the pleasure pit, guessing he wouldn’t be there, but looking all the same. It was very dark. All she could see was group of naked writhing bodies joined together. Her attention was drawn to a door opening behind her and as a man wearing just a pair of leather shorts stepped out, she could see into the dimly lit punishment room. A woman lay over a soft bench, having her bare butt spanked. By the sound of the moans coming from her, she was enjoying it, too. She knew she shouldn’t stare, but she couldn’t help herself.

"Kat, I didn’t take you for a voyeur." Colt’s sudden appearance at her side made her spin around to face him. Startled, she held a hand to her mouth.

"I was looking for you."

"I was behind the bar."

"Sorry, I didn’t see you. There’s a telephone call for you."

The woman being spanked became more vocal, and Kat motioned with her thumb over her shoulder. "I can’t believe she’s enjoying it."

Colt smiled. "You’d be surprised, Kat. I’ve spanked women to orgasm before now."

Kat just stared at him. For a woman who’d always had unsatisfactory sex, the idea that she could be spanked to climax seemed far-fetched. "Colt, your ego must be huge. It’s impossible to spank a woman to orgasm."

He leaned down and whispered in her ear. "Believe me, honey, I could have you begging for sexual release without any problem whatsoever."

The idea of Colt administering a spanking on her bare butt made her pussy go wet. Then reality struck home. Colt was just teasing her. With her hands on his chest, she playfully pushed him away. "Well, thankfully you’ll never get the opportunity to try it, Mr. Overblown Ego."

As she walked away, she could hear him laughing. "Maybe not, but I know the idea turns you on."


Adult Excerpt


Her fingers tensed as his hand moved to cup her breasts. The contact of his skin on her sensitive flesh sent a shock wave flooding through her body and made her moan her appreciation. He broke the kiss and trailed tiny caresses down her neck. "Tell me to stop, and I will," he said against her exposed cleavage. His tongue snaked out to taste her, and she arched her body in response, pulling hard on the steel manacles securing her wrists to the wall. They only heightened her sense of losing control, making unknown pleasure pulse through her veins. God help her, she didn’t want him to stop. "Colt," she whispered.

Immediately his lips sought hers, controlling her, dominating her, making her yield to his will. He roughly hitched her dress to her thighs and slipped a finger inside her panties. When he spread her legs wide with his own and touched her aching clitoris, she bucked with the contact.

"Oh, honey, that’s so rewarding. Your pussy is really wet."

Fighting for breath, she stared into his eyes. "I’m not your type, Colt. I won’t buckle under."

"Kat, honey, you might not know who you really are, but I do, I can see it in your eyes. You want me to take control of your life. You want to yield to me. You want to feel safe and protected."

"You’ve the wrong woman. It’ll never happen." Sadness enveloped her. Kat had never felt safe and protected in her life. Why would Colt be any different? He was a man just like all the rest.

"You just need to trust." He stroked her face with his hand, brushing the hair from her eyes. His strong physique towered over her, yet he was so gentle with her. His other hand clasped the burgeoning nub of her clit, squeezing it between his thumb and forefinger. Kat bit onto her bottom lip, trying to quell the whimpers of pleasure that wanted to erupt from her lips. He kissed her mouth, caressing her slowly as he stared into her eyes. "You’ve never trusted any man, have you, Kat?"

"No, they always let you down." Her whole body arched as a finger slipped inside her soaking wet channel. "Oh, Colt." She closed her eyes, savoring everything about him. His touch, his smell, his unique presence.

"Look at me." She opened her eyes and looked directly at him. "I can give you what you really want. What you need."

"You can’t, no man can. I’m a lost cause."

He caressed her clit again, pleasuring it between his fingers. "You need this. You need me."

She gasped. "I’ve never needed any man. I’m fine on my own."

His lips covered hers as his fingers invaded her sex. He slid them deep inside her cunt, over and over until moans of pleasure tore from her lips.

"I can make you come like never before," he assured her.

"I don’t come. I can’t come. I’m frigid." The words felt like grit in her mouth as she spat each one out. It had always saddened her that she’d never been able to achieve orgasm. When she’d had sex before, only on the rare occasion had it been pleasurable, but she’d never been able to climax with a man. Perhaps orgasms were the ultimate myth. She looked up into Colt’s eyes. "I told you I was a lost cause."

"Kat, you’ve been mixing with the wrong men. Just trust me."


"Then tell me to stop. Tell me you’re not turned on."


Their eyes connected, and she saw the knowing smile that briefly touched his lips. He was right. Her heart beat to a rhythm she’d never known before. Colt intoxicated her. He overwhelmed her with his presence.

He roughly pulled at her blouse. The buttons pinged and popped as the lacy material ripped noisily apart. When her breasts bounced free, he massaged them with his fingers, enjoying their weight in his hands. He took a nipple into his mouth, licking the tender peak with his tongue. "Some women are made to be fucked really slowly, Kat, and you’re one of them. Trust me, I know exactly what you need."

"I don’t trust any man," she whispered.

Slowly, Colt sunk to his knees in front of her. He unzipped her skirt, slipping it down her legs, and then tore the panties from her trembling body. Virtually naked in front of him, she whimpered. "Colt." She could see her breasts heaving with excitement in the subdued lighting of the dungeon. All around her the instruments of restraint hung from the walls. Her wrists pulled against the manacles as he lifted her legs.

Using his weight, he pressed her back against the wall, spreading her legs wider with his broad shoulders until they rested on his forearms. Open to his darkest desires, he stared at her neatly trimmed pussy.

"Beautiful, just beautiful. I’m going to fuck you until you can’t stop coming."
