Synopsis

Kara Brookes hates liars.

Dylan Day hasn’t told the truth from the moment his plane touched down in Ibiza.

It’s a recipe for disaster.

Lucien and Sophie are back, and have set up camp on the sun-drenched isle of Ibiza for the opening of the latest of Lucien’s strictly adult clubs.

They’re joined for the summer by Sophie’s best friend Kara, and Dylan Day, Lucien’s newly appointed club manager. The laid back, smokin’ hot surf guy from California seems almost too good to be true… but there’s no smoke without fire. It’s going to be a long hot summer of love, lust, lies and wedding bells. But who will get their happy ever after?

Romantic, emotional and intensely erotic, Knight & Day is the thrilling final installment of the USA Today bestselling Knight Series from Kitty French.

Excerpt

Sophie was already at the club when Kara arrived a l ittle while later. She’d made a start on opening the stock boxes, and was kneeling on the floor surrounded by scanty lingerie and sex toys.

“Just a normal day at the office I see.” Kara dropped her bag down on the floor with a grin.

“Free samples,” Sophie said, holding up an edible, erect penis with a look of barely disguised horror.

“Classy,” Kara laughed. “Lunch?”

Sophie made a ‘no-way’ face and put the choc-cock back in its box.

“Where did you get to?”

“Just giving the old Mustang a good airing,” Kara said, aware she sounded vague but reluctant to mention her visit to Dylan.

“Just don’t get yourself arrested,” Sophie said.

Kara faked offence. “As if.” They both knew she was perfectly capable of it, and she’d only wriggled off the hook one time back home because she happened to have been pulled over by a cop who’d had the hots for her in college.

“It’s just that I noticed that Dylan’s jacket had gone out of the hallway.” Sophie didn’t look up from the box she was slicing open, but Kara heard the speculative hint behind her words all the same. There was no getting anything past that girl.

“Mm. I dropped it back for him while I was out.”

Sophie glanced up, her eyebrows high above questioning eyes.

“What?” Kara rolled her eyes. “You asked me to be nice to him. I was being nice.”

“No, it’s nothing,” Sophie pulled open the carton in front of her. “It’s just…”

Kara dropped down on her knees beside Sophie and reached for an unopened box, already knowing exactly where Sophie was heading with this conversation.

“Soph, don’t worry. The last thing I’m interested in is getting involved, especially with some guy who we don’t know from Adam. He could be a mass murderer for all we know.”

“He doesn’t strike me as a mass murderer,” Sophie said neutrally. “I like him, actually. Easy on the eye, too.”

“You think?” Kara studied the inventory list for the box she’d just opened without really taking in the details. “He’s okay, I suppose.”

“You suppose.” Sophie smiled. “You suppose?”

“What do you want me to say? He’s hot? Okay, I suppose he’s hot. Kind of. If you like that sort of thing.”

“You like that sort of thing.”

“Are you telling me or asking me?”

Sophie placed the handcuffs she’d been examining for quality back in the box and twisted to face Kara, her hands on her knees.

“Kara. We’ve been friends for more than half of our lives. I know you well enough to know that Dylan Day is exactly your type, so don’t even bother denying it, okay?”

Kara sighed. “Soph, I know what you’re thinking, but trust me on this. I’m not about to have a holiday romance and end up broken-hearted again. See these fingers?” She held out her hands. “Burned. After what happened with Richard last year, I’m well and truly off that whole romance shtick.”

“I seem to remember us having a conversation very similar to this when I separated from Dan,” Sophie said, referring to her childhood sweetheart and ex-husband. It seemed bizarre to imagine that she’d ever truly loved him now, because her feelings for Lucien were so much bigger. All-encompassing.

“Yeah, but you had the delectable Lucien to pick up the pieces. There aren’t enough Viking sex gods out there to go around for the rest of us.”

“Or American surf dudes?”

“Whichever. My point is that after being left standing at the fucking altar in a wedding dress I didn’t even fucking like all that much, I’m not about to jump into fucking bed with Dylan-yankee-doodle-diddle-Day!”

Sophie put her hand over her mouth, but the laugh came out just the same. Kara swiped her on the shoulder then burst out laughing too.

“You ladies sound hard at it.”

They both looked up as Lucien appeared in the doorway with yet another box in his arms, his eyes taking in the two laughing women surrounded by handcuffs and chocolate erections. Handcuffs. Erections. Sometimes, it just wasn’t possible to keep work and pleasure totally separate. Lucien placed the delivery down next to Sophie, and pocketed a set of handcuffs at the same time. She caught his eye fleetingly and then dropped her gaze with a discreet smile.

“Sophie, could I see you in my office in five minutes, please?”

She caught the emphasis absolutely clearly, and entered Lucien’s office seven minutes later, deliberately missing his deadline.

“You’re late.”

“I was busy.”

“Not just one minute late. Two.” He lounged against the edge of his desk and touched the back of the swivel chair beside him, turning it slowly to face her. “Sit down.”

Sophie closed the door behind her with a click and crossed the room. Lucien watched her closely, his eyes all over her. She’d dressed for him that morning, knowing full well that her feminine, not-quite demure, lace-trimmed sundress played to his cave-man instincts, and that the almost indecent underwear she’d chosen to team it with turned him hard on sight.

His hands moved warm and heavy to rest on her shoulders. Kind of loving, kind of clamped. Only the slow stroke of his thumbs on her neck beneath her ponytail betrayed him.

“Put your hands behind the chair, Sophie.”

A shiver ran from Sophie’s scalp to the base of her back. She swallowed, and slowly obeyed his demand. Lucien clipped the cuffs around her wrists, taking care to shackle her in place by threading the chain behind the post of the chair.

“A lot can happen in two minutes, Princess,” Lucien said, letting her hair free from its band before swinging the chair around to face him. He knelt before her, checked his watch, and spread her knees.

Sophie held her breath, never sure with Lucien what would happen next.

She gasped when he rucked her dress up her thighs, his hands firm as he yanked her hips forwards on the seat. Once she was exposed from the waist down, Lucien stopped for a second.

“These are some of my favourites,” he murmured, massaging a firm hand over the scrap of white lace between her legs.

“I wore them for you.”

He nodded briefly, his eyes hot on hers. “I know.” He gripped the edge of the delicate lace and pulled it aside, parting her thighs even wider with his shoulders as he dipped his head. He paused, his lips a whisper away from her skin. Both hands buried between her thighs, he opened her with his fingers and blew lightly over her flesh, a cool breeze to heighten the heat of his tongue.

Sophie watched him, her hands desperate to be tangled in his hair rather than behind the chair. He raised his eyes to hers and kissed her clitoris, and her body arched in response. He lifted one eyebrow, and kissed her there again. Slower, longer, with tongues, the most erotic of French kisses.

“Not just one minute late, Princess,” he said, stroking one finger along her thigh. “Two.”

He pushed two fingers inside her at once and fastened his beautiful mouth over her sex, his hot, wet tongue making her cry out. He mouthed her, delicate and then not so, teasing and then sensationally not so. He knew her body so well now. How to build her, how to hold her right on the edge, and how to plunge her all the way over whenever he wanted to. He wanted to. Her hips jerked and he followed her movements with his mouth, not letting her miss a thing.

Sliding his fingers slowly out of her, he dropped a kiss on her thigh as he straightened her clothes and checked his watch.

“One minute fifty five.”

Sophie stretched when he unlocked the cuffs, and Lucien caught hold of her wrist and massaged it.

“Next time, be more punctual.”

Sophie ran a hand over his crotch. “Maybe,” she massaged his erection and stretched up to lick her tongue over his lower lip. “Maybe not.”

She stepped away and skipped to the door, laughing when someone tapped the other side of it.

“Dylan,” she smiled in welcome, straightening the skirt of her dress, opening the door wide. “I hope you’re not late too. Lucien’s feeling quite the slave driver today.”

A Special Guest Appearance by Kallypso Masters

 somebodysangel

Synopsisbutton

When Marc d’Alessio first rescued the curvaceous and spirited Italian Angelina Giardano at the Masters at Arms Club, he never expected her to turn his safe controlled life upside down and pull at his long-broken heartstrings. Months later the intense fire of their attraction still rages but something holds him back from committing to her completely. Worse, secrets and memories from his past join forces to further complicate his relationships with family, friends, and his beautiful Angel.

Angelina cannot give all of herself to someone who hides himself from her. She loves Marc, the BDSM world he brought her into, and the way their bodies respond to one another but she needs more. Though she destroyed the wolf mask he once wore, only he can remove the mask he dons daily to hide his emotions. In a desperate attempt to break through his defenses and reclaim her connection to the man she loves, she attempts a full frontal assault that sends him into a fast retreat, leaving her nobody’s angel once again.

Marc finds that running to the mountains no longer gives him solace but instead leaves him empty and alone. Angelina is the one woman worth the risk of opening his heart. Will he risk everything to become the man she deserves and the man he wants to be? 

Buy Links:
Buy links are not available for Somebody’s Angel. We’ll post them as soon as we have them. Book is expected to release by Christmas.

Readers first met Marc D’Alessio in Masters at Arms (Free Introduction to the Rescue Me Series). Angelina Giardano came along in the opening chapter of Nobody’s Angel, which is primarily a story about her journey into the world of BDSM that she’s read about in novels and wants to explore.

In the weeks following the September 2011 release of Nobody’s Angel, Marc paid a visit to Siobhan Muir at her blog The Weird, The Wild and The Wicked. Because so few of my fans were on board with me at that time and probably never saw this, I thought it might be fun to share it again (with revisions) early in this Somebody’s Angel Blog Tour. Many of you will be new to the series, as well, so I’m starting the tour a little early so that you’ll have time to pick up your copy of the first two books at least. (I’ve put out a 99-cent combo of Masters at Arms & Nobody’s Angel, but you can still get Masters at Arms FREE). The target publication date of Somebody’s Angel is by December 22 (although it will go up as soon as it’s been thoroughly edited and is ready to go).

Originally, Marc and Angelina were supposed to be a subplot in Nobody’s Perfect (Rescue Me #4) and reach their Happily Ever After there. My characters love it when I plot and plan. They find my efforts quite amusing—then they go and do whatever they damn well please.

Interestingly, I was sharing a hotel room with fellow author, Siobhan Muir, at Authors After Dark in New Orleans in August 2012 when I was trying to finish Nobody’s Perfect. I was having trouble figuring out what to do about the bombshell Marc & Angelina dropped on me while writing that book. They also kept pulling me away from Damian and Savannah’s also serious issues. Siobhan is the one who suggested that Marc and Angelina’s needed their own space (in another book) to delve into their issues fully. (And now their new book book is longer than the one I cut them from!)

So, without further ado, here is an early interview with Marc. In this one, we’re in the time between when he meets Angelina in the opening pages of Nobody’s Angel, but before they are reunited a couple of chapters later.  

Interview with Kallypso Masters’

Master Marc D’Alessio 

Interviewed by author Siobhan Muir

Today I have a rare opportunity to speak with a true Master of BDSM, Master Marc D’Alessio from Denver’s Masters at Arms Club. The beginnings of Marc’s story was graciously written down by Kallypso Masters in Masters at Arms & Nobody’s Angel. His journey with the fair Angelina Giardano continues in the December 2013 release of Somebody’s Angel (Rescue Me #5).

NOTE: This interview takes place the week following Chapter One of Nobody’s Angel, before Marc is reunited with Angelina.

 

SM: Welcome, Master Marc, it is an honor to speak to you.

MM: It’s a pleasure to be here, Siobhan. That’s a beautiful name, by the way.

SM: Thank you. *Grins, flattered*

MM: Thank you for having me at your blog. I would like to correct you on one small point that people get confused about. I’m not sure there’s any such thing as a “master” at BDSM, or a perfect Dom. Master actually isn’t a title I relish or require submissives to use with me. I am still learning and have a very fine mentor, Master Adam Montague, who also happened to serve as my master sergeant in the Marines when we deployed together in Iraq. But I think he’d be the first to say he’s not a master either. We just try to be perfect in the moment with the subs who put their trust in us.

SM: You make an excellent point. However, I’d say the true masters are the ones who say they are not. But we should get on with the interview.

When did you first recognize your need for BDSM love?

MM: Actually, someone else recognized it. I was seventeen and working at my family’s ski resort in Aspen when a bored guest called me to her room and introduced me to bondage and domination. It wasn’t long before Master Marco was born and I became one of the best-kept secrets at the resort. Mama didn’t find out about it until long after Master Marco had been retired.

SM: If Master Marco has retired, how did you get back into BDSM and what forms do you practice?

MM: *Grins* Well, I didn’t totally lose interest in BDSM. I had a roommate at Camp Pendleton when I was training with the Marines. He had all the wrong ideas about BDSM and, a week before we deployed to Iraq, I dragged him up to LA to show him what BDSM could be like between consenting adults. I most prefer bondage and domination, but can deliver discipline if necessary. I do not get off bringing pain to my submissives, unless it’s in a “funishment” when punishment or discipline is delivered in a role-play scene, such as the “bad school girl,” or such.

SM: *Matches his grin* I’ve been known to be a bad girl. Mr SM tells me all the time. *winks* Was that how you become a part owner of the Masters at Arms Club?

MM: No, when I went to Iraq, I had no plans to start a BDSM club, but then I got wounded and was at loose ends. I knew I couldn’t go back to Aspen. I was dying cooped up inside an office at the family resort. My master sergeant told me about his plans to start a kink club in Denver, and I jokingly said I might like to help him get it started. Well, it took us a while to get the club off the ground. The third partner, Damián, had some serious shit to recover from and we waited until he was on his feet *glances away with a pained expression* before we launched it four years ago. In retrospect, I’m not sure if we banded together to run a BDSM club so much as we had bonded in Fallujah and didn’t want to lose touch with each other. None of us had anywhere to go, so we joined forces and have become a family, of sorts. Another member of my Marine recon unit, Grant, joined us earlier this year. She’s our resident Domme, although she does bottom for Master Adam when he needs someone for a demonstration or…well, whatever. But he describes her as more subordinate than submissive. *Smiles wryly*

SM: That must be an interesting relationship.

MM: *Laughs* Definitely interesting. Two strong alpha dominants scening together is always something to see.

SM: What’s your main job at the club? Do you have a specialty?

MM: It’s definitely not running the business end of things, that’s for sure. I’m happy to leave that to Adam. *Laughs * I haven’t been at the club much this past year, but I used to train the unattached submissives. Damián took over that job while I was gone. I also gave weekend sessions for new Doms and new members on how to get the most of their scenes, especially at the club. I’ll probably be taking up those activities again soon after an incident at the club last month with a pretty Italian girl. *smile fades * We don’t like to have poser or abusive Doms scening in the club. There are a lot of Tops/Doms/Masters who just don’t get that BDSM is not about abuse. We have a poster hanging at the club that reads: one word will stop a BDSM scene, but no amount of words will stop an abusive one.

Of course, my specialty is anything in the medical room, given that I was a Navy corpsman (what civilians might call a medic) for the Marine unit I served with. My nickname was “Doc.” I also enjoy sensual flogging and plan to demonstrate the Florentine flogging technique at the club in the coming months. Spankings and light paddling are favorites, as well.

SM: What is the “Florentine flogging technique” and how is it different from other flogging techniques?

MM: Florentine flogging is done with two identical or similar floggers. I prefer using leather or suede ones with 18-24-inch strands. After warming up the sub, I use a rhythmic, alternating motion of downward strokes from a flogger in each hand to the safe muscular areas of the upper back, ass, and thighs. Having the two floggers striking in such rapid succession is very intense for the sub–and for the Dom, as well. *Smiles*

SM: *Shivers with a grin* Does your family know about your work at the club?

MM: Unfortunately, yes, they do. I was training my little brother, Alessandro, to take over running things at the resort the night before I reported to Great Lakes for naval boot camp, and I had an emergency call from a guest in one of the remote cabins. When we went inside, we found the guest—an older woman—naked, kneeling, a riding crop between her teeth, and asking which of us was Master Marco. I deflected the situation and told Sandro to forget what he’d seen because Master Marco had been retired, but eventually he blabbed to Mama. I think he was trying to get himself out of trouble when the fetish magazines he subscribed me to while I was training at Camp Pendleton started coming to him after I deployed. Porn isn’t allowed in Iraq. *Sighs* Anyway, I don’t know what you know about Italians and their Mamas, but when she insisted that I wear a mask while in public scenes at the club, in case any of her friends from Aspen should show up there, I had to comply.

SM: Why do you think your patrons need this kind of love/sexual release?

MM: BDSM isn’t always about sex. Most of my scenes are strictly about control, domination, bondage. I enjoy getting bottoms or subs off sexually, but I don’t go beyond that in most scenes at the club. I’ve only taken it further sexually a few times and it hasn’t really been very…satisfying for me. Women tend to want more than I’m willing to give, so my motto is KISS—Keep It Superficial, Stupid.

There are lots of reasons why the BDSM lifestyle and scene attracts people. We tend to be a very open and welcoming community because all of us have been labeled freaks at some time. When you’re on the fringes of “polite” society, you tend to overlook the imperfections of others. We don’t judge other people and their kinks. BDSM is a spectrum. While I tend to stick to bondage and domination, others enjoy kink on the other end of the spectrum with edge play (knives, fire, needles, blood). We don’t see a lot of that at the Masters at Arms, although there are some who are into hardcore sadomasochism, including cathartic whippings.

Master Damián is what’s known as a Sadist Service Top. He’s told me the lifestyle helped him regain some control over his life after what happened in Fallujah when he lost his foot. But he’ll only deliver that level of pain on submissives looking for it. I’ve never seen him draw blood. He’s not into that. But watching him stripe someone’s back with a single-tail whip is really a thing of beauty. And the masochistic subs love him and come back again and again.

There also are those who’ve been abused sexually whose sexual identity is wired to find some of the same types of activities arousing now. We always ask our new members to share what their triggers are, and sometimes we find triggers they weren’t even aware of. But they find some sense of regaining control, whether as a top or bottom by practicing BDSM. I’m no psychologist or anything. Those are just some of the things I’ve seen and heard.

SM: Why do you need this kind of love?

MM: *Squirms in the chair* Who said anything about love? As I said, it’s not about commitment for me. It’s more of a…hobby. These days, I’m happier going wilderness trekking, skiing, working on the mountain search-and-rescue squad. I’m not looking for love. *Siobhan raises an eyebrow* There was this woman . . . Let’s just say it didn’t end well and I’ve pretty much been avoiding anything serious ever since.

It probably has to do with trust. You have to develop a strong level of trust with whoever you scene with. That’s not easy for everyone, myself included. So, no, I’m not looking for love.

SM: I understand you recently rescued a submissive from an abusive Dom. Can you explain a little about what happened and why you chose to step in?

MM: Ah, yes. Last weekend. Well, I’ve been volunteering as the Dungeon Monitor Supervisor lately, since I haven’t really been into doing any scenes. Dungeon Monitors—or DMs—patrol the club during regular hours trying to keep an eye on the scenes and activities and to make sure things are kept safe for everyone. This girl was new to the BDSM lifestyle and her Dom—I use the term loosely, because I think he really was one of those posers I was telling you about earlier—was flogging her and she seemed to be in distress. It’s really hard for a DM to tell what level of pain a sub is into, so it took me a few minutes of observing to see she didn’t appear to be enjoying the scene and might be in physical danger. I’m not sure how familiar you are with BDSM or fetish club rules, but a DM isn’t allowed to interrupt a scene or touch a scene participant. Once I got permission to examine her, I quickly realized she’d gone into deep subspace. Subspace is what it’s called when the sub’s mind and body disconnect. For experienced subs, it’s often a goal. But if it goes too deep, especially for a newbie sub like she was, it can cause hallucinations and medical issues. So, I put an end to the scene and provided aftercare to bring her back into her body.

SM: What exactly is “aftercare” and what does it entail?

MM: Even in a good BDSM scene, the sub gives so much to the Dom. The experience can be very intense, even more so in a scene that hasn’t gone well. It’s important for the Dom to take time to ensure that the sub is safe, protected, nurtured after a scene. I like to hold her in my lap and wrap her in a warm blanket, talk with her about the scene, just help her slowly reintegrate if she’s been in subspace, or process the feelings the scene might have brought out.

SM: *Cocks head to one side* Did you feel a connection with the woman when you rescued her?

MM: *Stares at his hands* Connection? I cared about her safety and her well-being. She didn’t deserve to be abused or taken advantage of in that way. No one does. I did want to check up on her later, but one of the club’s rules is confidentiality and she signed her membership forms asking for anonymity. So, Adam wouldn’t reveal any contact info for her. She doesn’t live in Denver, so I doubt I’ll ever see her again.

SM: What did Master Adam do about the abusive dom?

MM: Kicked his ass out and banned him for life. We also shared the information with other club owners in the area, in case he shows up there. None of us owners at the Masters at Arms Club will tolerate that kind of behavior. We run a friendly, healthy, “nice” club and plan to keep it that way. I wish we’d have the woman he abused to come back and try us again. I’d be interested in showing her the difference between what she experienced before and what the experience could be like with someone who listens to her needs and wants, honors her limits and safe word. Someone who knows about authentic BDSM. But I have a feeling she’ll not want anything more to do with this lifestyle after what happened. That’s the real pity. That asshole ought to be strung up by his…well, severely punished for doing that to her.

SM: I hope you get that opportunity, Master Marc, if she does come back. All the best of luck with the club and thank you so much for coming today to talk about your story.

MM: My pleasure. Stop by the club sometime. I’m sure we can arrange the perfect scene for you, Siobhan.

SM: *Laughs with a sultry smile* I might just do that.

Kally Loves Having Readers Join Her on this Journey

Kally profile  from Bookie Award pic cropped

Official Bio:

Kallypso Masters writes emotional, realistic Romance novels with dominant males (for the most part) and the strong women who can bring them to their knees. She also has brought many readers to their knees—having them experience the stories right along with her characters in the Rescue Me series. Kally knows that Happily Ever After takes maintenance, so her couples don’t solve all their problems and disappear at “the end” of their Romance, but will continue to work on real problems in their relationships in later books in the series.

Kally has been writing full-time since May 2011 and Somebody’s Angel is her fifth book in the series, preceded by Masters at Arms & Nobody’s Angel (#1 and #2), Nobody’s Hero (#3); and Nobody’s Perfect (#4).

Kally lives in rural Kentucky and has been married for 30-1/2 years to the man who provided her own Happily Ever After. They have two adult children, one adorable grandson, and a rescued dog and cat.

Now, back to Kally:

As those who follow me on Facebook know, I involve readers in the process of writing and story telling, as well. I’ll pose questions to them or post updates as to my progress, thought processes, oh and, yes, the occasional tease. I have a timeline profile (you must send a message along with a friend request to claim one of the remaining 275 spots before Facebook cuts me off!), an author page (https://www.facebook.com/KallypsoMastersAuthorPage)  you can follow, and even a series discussion group with 2700+ members there solely there to discuss this series. (To join the discussion group, send a friend request to Karla Montague (https://www.facebook.com/karla.montague.1)   Karla will add you to the group. Don’t be upset when she de-friends you after that. She’s strictly there to provide a portal to the group, which is where all the discussion takes place.)

I love meeting readers face to face, too (perhaps too much!). So if you are near any of my appearances (see my Web site http://kallypsomasters.com for a list), stop by and say hello! You don’t have to buy a book—I’m happy to sign swag or e-reader covers or just give hugs and have photos taken!

Review: Safeword Rainbow by Candace Blevins

Safeword Rainbow

Goodreads

Amazon

mandy

4 out of 5

WOW! I read the first 2 chapters and was so hot and squirmy that I needed a shower to cool down. And then I flipped to chapter 3 and fell out of my seat as time had passed and I wanted more from the first two chapters. But never fear, this book delivers the kink in spades and a great story to go with it.

I am not going to rehash the storyline or give you spoilers, but Candace Blevins has written a book that takes the kink in the bedroom and explores how a couple with different ideas but an overlapping kink make it work outside the “bedroom”. Her characters were mature, believable, and relatable. The whole book has a great flow and the perfect mix of story with my smut. I will be reading anything I can from Candace Blevins and I am honored that she sought out Raw Books to review the new extended version of Safeword Rainbow for her.

And please take me seriously when I tell you that this book is not for the faint of heart. Very intense BDSM scenes in this book and a whole lot of power exchange. The writing is flawless and brilliant but it is kinky and descriptive. If kink is your thing, go one click that bitch. If you are on the fence, take heed of my warnings as I will be pissed if you go read this and give it a poor rating because your sensibilities have been offended. Candace Blevins delivers kink with a story and it is exactly what I needed!

Safeword Rainbow is definitely not for the faint of heart.  There are some extremely intense BDSM scenes.  Sounds hot, right?  Normally, I’d agree.  I read the dirtiest of the dirty (ask Mandy, I’m pretty sure my Kindle archive shocked her), and enjoy every second of it.  The scenes in this were not the most intense I’ve ever read, but some left me a little uncomfortable, and that is not something easy to do.  The overall story itself was good and the book had potential to be great.  My issue is primarily the fact that most of the time Vivian did not seem to be enjoying what Tyler was doing to her, and it seemed to me that he enjoyed the fact that she wasn’t.  Most of Vivian’s thoughts revolved around her fighting the urge to safeword out of the scene, and there were a few times I wish she had.  To each his own if you like it like that, it just didn’t seem like she did, and he knew it.  I’m definitely no expert as I’ve never gone this deep in play, so please know that if you like the more extreme side of BDSM, you will most likely love this one.

Note to the BDSM novice readers out there, this is not a book I would recommend as your introduction in to the BDSM life style.  This book starts out with some heavy BDSM scenes before leading into any kind of story telling for readers like me.  I like a book to wine and dine me before getting down and dirty but this book was down and dirty from the beginning.

While I enjoy the thoughts of being tied up and at the mercy of a Dom, I am very green when it comes to the understanding of the thoughts of how someone would enjoy being hurt so bad you cried during a scene and have residual marks left for days or even weeks.

I enjoyed the serendipity the writer shows of Vivian and Tyler meeting years later and still having that connection that makes you want to continue a relationship, but I felt this story was overall left undeveloped and lacking.

While I did not finish this book, I do feel a little more knowledgeable about the workings of this world.

 

Synopsisbutton

Tyler and Viv have found each other again after a three day fling three years ago. Ideally suited for each other, they try to make a relationship work. However, they soon realize Tyler was expecting a 24/7 total power exchange and Vivian will never be a 24/7 submissive. As they try to find a compromise, Vivian must deal with what a Total Power Exchange means, even if it’s only a part time power exchange, and Tyler must decide if he can live with a sometimes-Master and sometimes-boyfriend relationship.
Will they find their pot of gold at the end of the rainbow?
This title was published in 2010 with less than half of the current content. The story has been considerably rewritten and contains a great deal of new material for your reading enjoyment. We think it’s a far better story now, but if you read the original, you can be the judge!
Warning: Contains graphic language, consensual BDSM, bondage, and the use of toys including clamps, canes, plugs, paddles, and floggers.

Review: The Shrinemaiden by Annie Eppa

4.5 out of 5

This was smoking HOT!!!  Seriously, one of the hottest books I’ve ever read.  I don’t often read the fantasy genre, but the synopsis for The Shrinemaiden had me intrigued so I decided to give it a whirl when Ms. Eppa kindly offered a copy to read and review.  I don’t care who you are, or what genre of smut you like to read, if you like smut that is more than just soft porn on paper, this is a must-have in anyone’s collection.  I was so hot and bothered throughout, I almost missed the story itself, but that would have been a shame because it was equally incredible.

The plot was a clever take on Queen Elizabeth’s Court lies and intrigue, and I also got a feel of a Roman Empire style thrown in.  Every single time I thought I had it all figured out, another curveball was thrown, and I found myself sitting up and thinking, ooh, tell me more!  I had a great admiration for Adelai’s character, not only a highly sensual woman, but also one sharp cookie able to hold her own in a world filled with treachery and danger.  Thornton was the definition of a sex on a stick alpha male, but was so much more than just brawn.  Nothing better than an old school military man, mmmm.

I’m dying for the next in the series, The Slavemaiden.  Kinlee and General Falen are introduced here, I loved them, and I think that one is going to be just as hot as this was, but we have to wait until Feb/Mar 2014 (whimper).  It’s already in my TBR, and I will be begging Annie Eppa to let me review.

Synopsisbutton

Adelai has known only one home – that of the Temple of Inne-annah, Goddess of Lust and Love. As a shrinemaiden, she was raised to be a graceful, high-society courtesan catering only to the rich and powerful, for a price.

On the eve of her auction, however, Adelai discovers treachery at play between two of the most powerful kingdoms in the land, and that she had become a pawn in a political game where the stakes are high, and one wrong move will mean war. The choices Adelai will make shall take her from gilded manors and fancy balls to a cruel king’s royal court, where secrets lurk and loyalty is an illusion. In the end, Adelai must use all the skills she’s learned both inside the bedroom and out of it to triumph against the men who want her, the men who would seek to possess her – and to win the man who loves her, against all odds.

The Shrinemaiden is the first of the Maidens trilogy, which takes place in the dark kingdom of Sarcopia, but remains a standalone.

Warning: explicit scenes, dubcon situations, sexy alpha males and some bdsm.

Annie has two great loves in her life – traveling the world, and writing. She panders to both by working as a freelance photojournalist, where she is sent all over the world to write and photograph awesome people and cute animals (and sometimes even the not-so-cute ones). She’s been on four continents, and hopes to add more countries to her ever-growing list. Due to her job, she has made many countries her home – Sweden, China, Brazil, the Philippines, Canada – and shuffles among these whenever she needs to.

Her debut novel, The Shrinemaiden, is an erotic fantasy set in a strange world of intrigue and bedroom politics. It is a standalone book that also manages to be the first in a series, and is due out in late 2013.

Review: The Dom With A Safeword by Sorcha Black, Leia Shaw, & Cari Silverwood

Bought this on a whim because it sounded like a good read and it totally was! I love when that happens and then a whole new avenue of books to read opens up. The Dom with a Safeword has 3 authors! I now have 3 new authors to stalk and read their works! WIN!

The Dom with a Safeword was really a fun read. The characters had good chemistry and the sexy times were both sexy and endearing. This book only scratched the surface of our leads’ backgrounds. We learn just enough to understand where they’re coming from and why they are the way that they are and that’s as deep as it gets. But I didn’t need any more than that. Q, Sabrina and Jude’s story was about the now and where things could go. It was about realizing that people don’t fit in a box and cannot be labeled or condemned for how they choose to love and have relationships with others.

The Dom With a Safeword was so…juvenile.  If you have ever seen the movie Young Adult with Charlize Theron, this book reminds me of something that her character in that movie would write.  If you haven’t seen that movie, don’t bother, it was pretty bad.

Back to the subject at hand.  The three lead characters were supposed to be in their late twenties.  They read like high school or early college age.  I also didn’t feel any kind of connection with any of the characters.  The backgrounds of each were poorly developed at best, and there was a lot of potential for a deeper understanding of the psyche.  Especially with the unique connection between these three.  All of that goes for the story itself as well.  Everything in general just felt underdeveloped and it moved really slowly.  It took me over a week to read this, and I read three other books at the same time.  I won’t read any others in this series, but I will keep an open mind and check out the individual authors.

 

 

Synopsisbutton

Late at night, on an amateur ghost hunt, Sabrina and her best friend Q are caught trespassing by the gorgeous, blonde Jude. The embers of attraction between them sizzle when they discover Jude’s kinks match their own.

Jude is a Dom on his last summer of freedom before starting the prison sentence that is med school. Q is a bad-ass bi switch who knows what she wants, and for years it’s been her cute, doe-eyed straight friend Sabrina. But the only way into Sabrina’s heart and panties may be with Jude’s fist wrapped in her hair.

Domming the bratty Q and mischievous Sabrina isn’t going to be easy but Jude relishes the challenge. At the end of the summer, will they find a way to stay together when everything is tearing them apart?
