Caleb Sterling has found the woman for him. He'll do whatever it takes to make her his... even if it means forcing her to spend time with him. He didn’t become a billionaire without learning how to leverage a contract to his advantage. Now that he’s gotten her to sign on the dotted line, he almost has Madeleine Connelly right where he wants her—in his bed and pregnant with his baby.

Madeleine seriously underestimated Caleb’s desire for her. She thought the notorious playboy would move onto his next conquest after he’d gotten what he wanted from her. When she accepted a business deal with his company, she didn’t realize it meant spending so much time with him. Now she has to decide if she wants to trigger the penalty clause in their contract so she can get away from him or succumb to the temptation that is Caleb Sterling.

**This is the first novella in the Risque Contracts series, but each story can be read as a standalone and features a different couple.

Yet another *sick at home* read.

This one was hot but it is strange. The hero decided to make this contract in order to trap the heroine so she could become his woman.

Strangely, he could have tried saying “Hello” first, you know, since they hadn’t been introduced yet. I guess that was a little too much for him however.

Penalty Clause (and the whole Risqué Contracts series) are more of these baby/pregnancy/breeding books. Which means the reader is treated to little tidbits like this:

“You’re mine, Madeleine. This pussy will only ever feel my cock inside it from now on, only my tongue devouring its nectar, and only deliver my babies.”

“Why in the world would you tell her I could be pregnant?” I asked while standing up to face him on a more even level. Caleb practically growled his response. “Because I’ve fucked you bare about a dozen times in the last two days, filling you with as much of my come as I possibly could in hopes that you would be.”

“No, Madeleine, you’re not,” I gritted out. “You missed your doctor’s appointment. Your body is ripe and ready for me to plant our kid inside you. Make no mistake, baby, if I haven’t already, I will have you pregnant as soon as humanly possible. And,” my voice hardened, along with my cock as I imagine her naked body with a rounded belly, “you can expect to stay that way for a while.”
-location 669

So. The entire “Contract” was BS in my opinion. Because that’s a shitton to do when you could start by asking the damn girl out. Fucker.

Also, I was not a fan of the rope play – it felt poorly researched and no where near as hot as the Shibari in Craving Flight.

Regardless, it was rather interesting.
