Alistair Ingram is finally the man he wants to be, with the woman he wants to be with. No longer ruled by his manager, producer, agent or fans’ desires, he and Bethany “Black Betty” Stavars have settled into his LA mansion and have started a life together. Everything is as it should be…until he gets the call that Bethany has been brutally attacked in their home.
Alistair can barely stand to see Bethany’s bruised and battered body, but that’s not the worst of her injuries. She regains consciousness thinking she’s still married to her ex-husband—the man responsible for putting her in the hospital in the first place—and has no recollection of being with Alistair.
Unable to coax her brain into giving her any memories of the past ten years of her life, Bethany struggles to comprehend how she could’ve ended up on the other side of the country—California instead of Florida—and living with superstar actor, Alistair Ingram. Even worse, how had she become a dominatrix at a Vegas men’s’ club?
Lucky for her, the past few months have been detailed in black and white newsprint in every gossip magazine she can get her hands on.
With their relationship hanging in the balance, there’s only one thing Alistair can do. Jog her memory the best way he knows how. In bed
This is a very short novella that continues the story of Alistair Ingram and Bethany "Black Betty" Stavars from The Submission of Alistair Ingram. It basically picks right back up where the last novella left off. While Alistair is away filming his new movie with his "ex-fiancé", Bethany is brutally attacked in their home. Alistair rushes to be by her side, but when Bethany wakes up she has no memory of Alistair. She has lost ten years of her life, she believes she is still married to the abusive ex who attacked her and also doesn't remember her time as "Black Betty". Alistair promises not to leave Bethany's side and support her and helps her remember. All Bethany knows is, Alistair is this famous movie star that her mind doesn't remember, but her body remembers him. It's not long before the chemistry between these two is back and little bits and pieces of their life together comes back to Bethany. Will Bethany remember her past and how will she deal with all the hardships and the person she has become?
The Penance of Black Betty was sweet, saucy, and sexy! Like I mentioned before, this is a very short novella that continues Alistair and Black Betty's story. I definitely enjoy reading these, but I will be glad when we can get the complete series.
