Main characters – Rorik ‘Rory’ Wilder, Daralyn Moss
I just finished reading ‘In His Arms’ and I’m trying to find the right words to convey how wonderful this book is and how grateful I am to get to spend time in another one of Joey W. Hill’s amazing worlds. From the first chapter I felt myself pulled in and hating reading the last page knowing I had to leave and try to find the right words to share with others.
Daralyn Moss was abused and traumatized by her father and his half-brother since she four until Elaine Wilder realized something was wrong and rescued her. The Wilder family took her into their home at fifteen and she has become part of their family while she healed.
Rorik ‘Rory’ Andrew Wilder was a high school football star until a tractor accident put him in a wheelchair for the rest of his life. He’s gone through a lot of emotional struggles learning to deal with his new reality. He’s loved Daralyn for a long time. When a kiss under the mistletoe at Christmas makes them both more aware, he still holds off acting on it until he sees she desires and needs him too. He questions himself and his motives and even his ability to give her all she needs, not only because he’s in a wheelchair but whether being her dominant is best for her.
Rory is a natural dominant and Daralyn is a natural submissive, their path to self discovery with each other and their obvious love while they learned and grew together touched my heart.
With the help of her doctor, Rory and his family, Daralyn bloom’s from a terrified, abused woman to a woman who can face the world again. Rory learns to believe in himself and trust he is the right man for her. The road wasn’t always smooth and they stumbled but they had each other to catch them before they fell to far. Watching these two grow in their own ways, learning to believe in themselves and finding their own strengths was so inspirational. Rory realizing he’s a dominant and learning how to properly care for his beautiful submissive Daralyn and their shared exploration was brilliantly done.
Hill shines a light on having a relationship and living life in a wheelchair, the challenges they face and the amazing successes, she seamlessly blends these things so well into the story, I felt like I could feel everything going on in Rory’s head. The successes and the mistakes, the emotional traumas, the setbacks and the victories and the love and support, it’s all there to pull your heartstrings.
Thank you Joey W. Hill for another amazing story, a must read in my opinion.

About Joey W. Hill
Joey W. Hill writes about vampires, mermaids, boardroom executives, cops, witches, angels, simple housemaids . . . pretty much wherever inspiration takes her. She’s penned over forty acclaimed titles and six award-winning series, and been awarded the RT Book Reviews Career Achievement Award for Erotica. But she’s especially proud and humbled to have won the support and enthusiasm of a wonderful, widely diverse readership.
So why erotic romance? “Writing great erotic romance is all about exploring the true face of who we are – the best and worst – which typically comes out in the most vulnerable moments of sexual intimacy.” She has earned a reputation for writing BDSM romance that not only wins her fans of that genre, but readers who would “never” read BDSM romance. She believes that’s because strong, compelling characters are the most important part of her books.
“Whatever genre you’re writing, if the characters are captivating and sympathetic, the readers are going to want to see what happens to them. That was the defining element of the romances I loved most and which shaped my own writing. Bringing characters together who have numerous emotional obstacles standing in their way, watching them reach a soul-deep understanding of one another through the expression of their darkest sexual needs, and then growing from that understanding into love – that’s the kind of story I love to write.”
Take the plunge with her, and don’t hesitate to let her know what you think of her work, good or bad. She thrives on feedback!
