Publisher's Summary

Eager to understand her secret desires, Gabrielle enters "The Sanctuary." Inside she's immediately torn between fear of the unknown and a craving to learn more, until the lights dim. From the first sound of Thomas' calm and controlled voice, she is mesmerized. With an underlying need in her emotional spirit that requires more control, she is easily seduced into a world of dominance and submission.
For Thomas, an experienced Master, Gabrielle is an interesting mix of defiant, naive and submissive. Her sharp mind and wit appeal to him as much as the curves of her lush figure. He accepts the challenge to help train her despite the danger she represents. Long term anything for him is out of the question. If he does his job right, his protégé David will end up the perfect Dom for her and Thomas will move on with his armor intact.
Their journey puts Gabrielle at the mercy of two men who teach her how to embrace her darkest needs within a tight bond of trust. Unfortunately, betrayal lurks on the path to total surrender.

Awesome story

Hot, hot, hot! This was a scorcher! This is my first Eliza Gayle book and I have to say I'm liking what I am hearing. I thought the relationship had just the right amount of time to really develop and trust to be built between all parties.

Gabriel (who prefers Gabby) was such an interesting character. She wasn't a wilting flower and I appreciate that kind of character. I like the stronger characters, not only in romance, but with wanting to submit. It enhances the story for me. But she's no warrior princess either. I love being able to see the vulnerable side. Let's face it, all women hit that point in a relationship and it makes the character relatable. Plus, what woman wouldn't be swept away by two incredibly handsome doms who want nothing more than to take care of their woman?

I liked the story (is that a shocker?). I like how it didn't fall into stereotypical when it came to some of the troubles that Gabby finds herself in. I was expecting something completely different and was pleasantly surprised by how Eliza Gayle handled it. I didn't roll my eyes or feel like it was too cliche.

Strong romance, strong story, strong characters. Absolute pleasure to listen to!

Nina Burns was outstanding in the delivery of the story.

Good Story but, could have been better.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Gabby needs to confront her husband and her friend Angel. She did neither. Having everyone else take care of her problems took away from the story. Gabby did not grow as a character. Also, the author tied up all the issues too quickly.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Like the rest of the story, there were no surprises.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

Nina Burns portrayal of Gabby brought the character to life. However, her male characters could have been better.

Was Submissive Beauty worth the listening time?

Once is enough. You can eat one potato chip. There's no addiction here.

Any additional comments?

If you are looking for great sex scenes, this the book for you. However, the story line needs to be more developed.

So so

Would you consider the audio edition of Submissive Beauty to be better than the print version?

Never read the book. I didn't mind the audio version. Like many other reviews have said, there is no story line but the romance scenes are good.

Would you recommend Submissive Beauty to your friends? Why or why not?

No. I don't think my friends would be into BDSM

What does Nina Burns bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

She is very expressive but I'm not so bad myself (in my head at least!)
