When it came to achieving her goals, Elizabeth Martin knew what she wanted. Her goals were simple: to go all the way to the top. When she was hired as the new executive vice president for a prestigious advertising firm, she felt she was well on her way. However, she never counted on a disgruntled rival taking a very creative revenge-drugging her, and selling her in a slave auction in a BDSM club. Will her career be ruined by the sabatogue?
Cole Pearson had very few requirements in his life, but recently he had felt something was missing. When he went to the slave auction at The House of Usher, he never imagined he would find the woman who would complete him, or that she would be completely oblivious to everything around her. Compelled to try to help her, Cole decided he would do whatever it took to save her. Would she be willing to stay in his life after she realized what happened?
With a villain that gives new meaning to the words slimy and nefarious, a very good cast of secondary characters, and a very entertaining writing style, ACCIDENTAL SLAVE was a great read. Ms. Thompson does an excellent job, producing a story that appeals even to those not involved in the BDSM scene. Cole was an amazing character, dominant without being overbearing, and very caring towards Elizabeth. As a heroine, Elizabeth was also an excellent character, and I really liked the dichotomy in her personality. The love scenes were amazing, so spicy that they almost curl the toes. Fantastic job!

While the book did delve into some of the kink that the story is supposed to be about, the descriptions are rudimentary and unfulfilling.
I read this on my Kindle and fully 70% of the book was taken up by nothing having to do with the character's assumption of the role of "slave" (yes, I checked as I was reading). Additionally, throughout the book the character was referred to as "sub" or "submissive". There is a distinct difference between sub/submissive and slave in the world of D/s.
I suppose for some, what little story there is about D/s is probably exciting, as there are some fairly accurate descriptions of what goes on in these relationships, but I feel that the title is misleading and inaccurate.
Frankly, I've read romance novels that provided better writing about dominant men and submissive women. I'm not sure the author really did the research for this one.
When an author can weave kink into a well-written plot driven story, I know I'm in for a rare treat. Claire Thompson really shines as a premiere BDSM writer in Accidental Slave. Elizabeth has no idea what she's in for when Cole Pearson buys her at the slave auction. Cole attends the auction hoping maybe this will be the day he'll find a submissive to speak to his romantic soul. He immediately notices that something's wrong with Elizabeth and suspects foul play.
Getting Elizabeth back to his apartment, Cole finds out the truth behind her being there at the auction. Figuring out Elizabeth is an utter newbie to the D/s scene, he allows her to decide if she wants a D/s relationship with him. Initially reluctant to allow Cole to assist her, she's touched by the way he defends her, giving her encouragement to combat Gary's ugliness. Driven like a moth to a flame, Cole wisely gives her little tastes of BDSM, taking her to new heights in submission with their every meeting. Under his tutelage, Elizabeth blossoms into a woman who is comfortable with her sexuality, able to give Cole the submissive of his dreams.
Ms. Thompson unites two unlikely characters destined to be together in Accidental Slave. I was hooked from its first sentence and chortled with glee as justice finally comes to Gary at this book's wonderful end.
