It's been six months since his divorce and Steele needs to get over it. His promiscuous friend Karl takes him to a nightclub, hoping that Steele will at long last get laid. Although Steele would like that too, he doesn't want to settle for just a one-night stand. He's hoping to find a woman who can fulfill his secret BDSM fantasies.
Acacia is out celebrating her 40th birthday and wants to find a man who will submit to her will. She'd been the one to submit in her marriage for too many years and now that her divorce was final, she intended to find a man who would be her willing sex submissive.
Steele and Acacia literally bump into one another and there's instant chemistry, although both mutely vow to keep their hearts tightly locked up. They believe that all they want is a one-night stand and soon end up at Acacia's apartment where both have their fantasies fulfilled...and then some. As the short story closes they realize this will turn into something much more than just a one-time thing and they're eager to explore it all the way.
