British Agent Drake Steele never thought when he was hired on at the Serious Organised Crime Agency that his job would involve spanking a co-worker. But when the colleague is Lord Robbie Covington, the sexy red-headed computer hacker for SOCA and MI-6, Drake can't agree fast enough to pop Robbie's cherry and pull him into the sensual world of BDSM.
Now they are caught up in a web of lies as they pose as members of the jet-setting crowd. Drake and Robbie have to race against the clock to stop a weapons haul that could threaten the safety of all Europe. As their covers begin to fade and danger is closing in, protecting Robbie is Drake’s most important task, but neither man is ready for the moment when their hearts are put on the line.
As we reached the edge of the crowd surrounding the presentation area, a blond gentleman stepped in front of us. “Robbie Covington, it’s been quite some time since you’ve been to Prague,” he said in accented English.
“Joseph!” Robbie exclaimed and widened his eyes. “I’m surprised to see you here.”
Joseph pulled Robbie loose from my hold and hugged him hard. “I can’t believe you’re here.” Joseph grinned. “You said the last time we talked it would be a couple years before you could come here. Why didn’t you ring me to let me know you’d be in town?”
“I didn’t know until the last minute,” Robbie said as he pulled away and smiled. “It was a surprise.”
When they separated, the thick gold-and-diamond bracelets surrounding Joseph’s wrists disappeared beneath his sleeves again. They proclaimed him a slave, most likely to the dark-haired man standing right behind him.
“I apologize for my slave,” he said. “But he was so eager to see his old schoolmate again, he forgot his manners completely. I’m Erich.”
“Nice to meet you. I’m Drake Steele.” I shook his proffered hand as the other men separated.
Joseph dropped his gaze. “I’m sorry to have embarrassed you, Sir.”
Robbie opened his mouth, no doubt to give Erich a piece of his mind for being high-handed. Gripping his elbow to stop him, I sighed indulgently and then pulled him back to my side. “It seems we both have insolent subs. I’ll punish him later,” I said with a chuckle.
Joseph’s dom smirked. “I think my sub needs it now, or he’ll never behave properly tonight. Care to watch?”

Dangerous Submission interview questions
I had the chance to ask some questions of Lori too! Hope you guys enjoy reading her answers as much as I did!
~So tell us about yourself. What got you interested in writing?
Hi, I’m Lori Toland and I’m a CEO and a mother to two cats and a wife to a very adorable British hubby. I started writing because I had stories to tell and I enjoyed getting lost in my worlds I created.
~What's your guilty pleasure?
I love being able to discover a book series that I can read all at once.
~What was your favorite character to write, and why?
I still adore Tony Terranova but Drake Steele is a very close second along with Stefan Zuliani. OMG. Can I have a Drake and Stefan sandwich? Please? :D
~Do you prefer hot or cold weather and why?
I prefer warmer weather but only because of my lupus and the complications with it. I used to love the cold and bundling up for it. It’s also great for snuggling! J
~Take one of your stories and tell us what you would change about it if you would do it over again.
Soul Seduction. Rather than making it a two part series, I would just put the two books into one. I may still do that in the future.
~What has been the toughest criticism given to you as an author? What has been the best compliment?
The best compliment was that I was a reviewer’s treat after finishing up her reviews. That was really nice. The toughest criticism is when my world building is not enough for readers. Oftentimes that’s a tough choice to make. Trust me, I never feel like it is enough but there is a fine balance between overtelling and letting a reader’s imagination work.
~What's the best advice anyone has ever given you?
Never stop writing. If you are a writer, never let rejection get you down. Keep going and never stop!
~What part of the writing process do you dread?
I really dread the writing from 0-10000 word count. For some reason, that always seems like an insurmountable obstacle but once I’m past that, I’m gone like an arrow.
~Is there anything you’d like to tell? Maybe something in the works you would like to promotion? Feel free!
I’m always working on something! But I do have a hot and fresh new release from Loose Id in the “Dangerous Affairs” series called English Chaps. J It’s a fun little short.
~Where can readers find you on the web?
I’m at loritoland.com, which is also my blog. Come say hi to me! I’m also on Twitter and Facebook as Lori Toland.
