Francesca Arno and Ian Noble act on their attraction, but is Francesca too innocent to give Ian what he wants?
Because I Could Not Resist is a story of firsts: Ian has never been with a virgin or a woman not experienced in the BDSM lifestyle, and Francesca never knew she was submissive. These revelations create difficulty for each of them. Part of Francesca’s reticence is that they aren’t even in a relationship. All that’s between them at this point is undeniable attraction. Because I Could Not Resist is also a story of anticipation. Anticipation of how dominant Ian is and of how Francesca will react to that dominance. Francesca’s devastation, her humiliation, and yes, even though they’ve practically just met, her broken heart, is tangible. She was discovering herself through Ian, and he crushed her with a few careless words. The BDSM begins with a spanking and a paddling in Because I Could Not Resist and leaves hints of much more to come.
