Product Description

Cade’s trying to get over a broken heart when his friend takes him to a nightclub, named only, The Club. Although Cade is shocked by the taboo atmosphere, things turn around when he meets Marissa. 

Marissa lifts Cade’s sadness and opens his heart to love again. Cade touches Marissa’s heart in ways she doesn’t want to admit. Will pressure from The Club and Marissa’s fear of commitment send them running in opposite directions?

Be Warned: light BDSM

 

Excerpt:

Something strange happened to Cade when Jayne dumped him. Every scrap of confidence he possessed disappeared, just like dew on the grass in a blaze of morning sun.

Cade felt scorched. Her parting words still burned in his heart.

You’re hopeless in bed.”

Cade considered her declaration once again as he stared out with unseeing eyes across the wide expanse of river from his corner office in the prestigious tower block. He put down his coffee cup. “Hopeless.” He said it aloud, tasting the bitterness in the finality of the word. “If she’d said something like, bad, or even not very good––but hopeless? That implies I couldn’t even improve if I tried.”

Cade stood and wandered to the huge pane of glass that was the left side of his office wall. He rested his forehead on it and sighed. Today he felt more melancholy than ever. It was his anniversary. One year ago, Jayne had dumped him. The engagement ring she’d pressed into his hand before she swept out of their apartment was still on the bookshelf, where he’d dropped it as tears filled his eyes.

He was ashamed he’d cried, but even now, a year later, he saw the busy road far below as a blur. Cade hadn’t dated since the break-up. At first, he couldn’t date because the truth was, he still loved Jayne … and then he couldn’t because he had no confidence that any woman would want him. She might at first, but when it comes to my hopeless performance in bed, she’d hightail it quick smart. Cade moved back from the window and saw his breath had made a patch of white on the glass. He wrote the word ‘hopeless’ in the cloud on the window.

At the sound of a knock on the door Cade spun around. He swiped the back of his hand across his cheek, where a solitary tear lingered.

“Yes.”

His secretary opened the door and walked in a couple of steps.

“Cade, your three-thirty appointment is in the lobby. Will I have him brought up?”

Cade nodded. “Sure, Abbi, and then will you bring coffee, please.” He watched her pretty eyes fill with warmth.

She smiled at him. “I will.”

Cade went to the drawing table in the corner of the office and looked over the design for the client. A smile teased at the corners of his mouth. Cade loved his work. The enjoyment of creating a beautiful building design and seeing it come to life in the hands of the builders never failed to cheer him.

Cade dashed into the bistro and saw Jack waving at him from a table halfway across the room. He slowed his pace and joined his old friend. On alternate Thursday nights, he met Jack and Gary for a meal and they caught up on each other’s lives. Tonight, Gary left around nine to get home to his girlfriend.

Jack waited until the restaurant door closed behind Gary and then he gave Cade a purposeful stare.

“Have you thought over what we talked about last week, Cade?”

Cade took a deep breath. “I know I need something, but I’m not sure it’s that.”

“It might be just the thing––a different way of looking at sex. Something new, to spark you up. I couldn’t go back now. It’s a lifestyle choice, I know, but why not come to The Club tomorrow night? My Sub has asked to prove she can cope with someone watching us. She’s a sweetie.”

Cade looked away from his friend’s sympathetic expression. He turned his coffee cup around and drank the last cool mouthful.

  1. Cade Can Rescue Me 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Dec 2015

    Cade is looking to move on from a failed relationship. So he decides to go along with his friend to The Club. He's not use this is the place for him until he sees her!

    Marissa is woman who knows what she wants and how to get it. She's far from the submissive, she a domme. And she's not really looking for a long term relationship, but there is something about Cade that draws her in.

    But Cade's insecurities and Marissa's lifestyle could threaten the couple before they even get started.

    I really enjoyed this story and watching these two grow and become stronger individuals for it. They share a very alluring chemistry that radiates off the pages. I know I wouldn't mind spending my nights with the tall, dark, and handsome Cade. I am totally envious of Marissa.


  2. great snowy day read 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Feb 2015

    I'm a long time fan of Elodie Parkes and this romantic tale was another win for me. Cade is in bad shape emotionally and something is definitely missing in his life. A former lover has done some damage to his psyche and a friend takes him to a sex club in an effort to help him find himself. What he finds is an instant, unstoppable connection with Mistress Marissa. A hot steamy story of compelling characters and a love that conquers all.


  3. When Love Triumphs Over Regret and Betrayal 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Feb 2015

    The enigmatically named 'The Club' may cater for those whose sexual tastes reach deep into the dark side of the spectrum, but this backdrop plays only a walk on part in this tender romance where caring hands heal a wounded heart – and perhaps that should read: wounded hearts.

    Cade is taken by a friend to 'The Club' because he believes, a bit like Christian Grey, or de Sade himself, that a spot of BDSM will cure his blues. Cade meets Marissa, those tender hands, and both begin to wonder if they can escape the disappointments of the past and seek a fresh horizon. Does the phoenix of love ever rise from the ashes of regret and betrayal?

    That is the question Elodie Parkes explores in Rescuing Cade with her two damaged, poignant, believable characters, Cade and Marissa. Parkes is a master at creating characters that stay with you. Her love scenes are descriptive, tasteful, erotic, elegiac and never stray into cliché. This is not the first work I have read by this intriguing author and it most certainly will not be the last.


  4. Surprising, exotic page turner 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Feb 2015

    Rescuing Cade is a surprise, a refreshingly different erotic romance with BDSM themes. It's primarily a love story and it kept me intrigued as Cade, and his love interest, Marissa, dance around the idea of love. The sex scenes are scorching hot and woven with a special tenderness. The story becomes very real as it unfolds and the characters are very well developed by the author. A great read if you like a hot romance


  5. A scorching romance with a great plot 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Feb 2015

    Rescuing Cade is a real sizzler. The love scenes are scorching hot. The supporting characters in the book are very real and likable and the two main characters Cade and Marissa are very well drawn and very lovable. The plot is set in a contemporary city and the descriptions of the place are excellent. There's a satisfying ending to the romantic journey of both the hero and heroine. I enjoyed this erotic romance immensely and can recommend for a hot, interesting, and sexy read that had me turning the pages.


  6. Rescuing CaDe 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Feb 2015

    I thoroughly enjoyed this story. It's in the BDSM category, but it's hardly a BDSM novel. The setting where the hero and heroine meet is a club and the description of the place is sexy but tasteful. The love scenes between Cade, the hero and Marissa, the heroine are sizzling hot, with a tenderness underlying their encounters. Cade is trying to get over a broken heart and as you read the beginning of the story he sure tears at your heart strings. Well written and with a couple of plot twists this is a very enjoyable erotic romance, with only light themes and a setting that touch on BDSM. 5 stars from me.

  7. A great twist on the broken heart story 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Feb 2015

    Instead of the girl languishing from a broken heart we have a man. I love this twist in the story where the author paints Cade's melancholy so well. He's tempted to go with his friend to a nightclub and that's where destiny gives him Marissa. She's an interesting character, too. Supposedly a Mistress in the BDSM club she's complex and on the run from real love. The story of how she and Cade get together is very well written. This is not true erotica, not a BDSM novel as categorized. The setting and surrounds may visit The Club, but this is an erotic romance. I really enjoyed it. The sex scenes are scorching hot. The characters are endearing. It's a delightful mix of heat and romance.


  8. Sizzling hot romance 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Feb 2015

    I loved the characters in this story. Gorgeous hunky Cade is easy to fall in love with. He has the kind of looks that make your heart speed up. He's sexy as hell and yet when we meet him he's vulnerable and floundering around from a broken heart. Marissa is complex and, I think, yearning for love when she meets Cade in the BDSM club. The romance sizzles between them, with Cade falling for Mistress Marissa and hoping to hold onto her. This is an erotic love story with an HEA. It's lovely, with some great twists when we realize Marissa and Cade are not what they first seem, and there are BDSM themes, but if you're looking for a spanking there are none. Recommend for a good, interesting, and scorching hot read.
