Synopsis: After the last fiasco, Sally gives up. She’ll never find a Dom of her own. Instead the computer whizz is job hunting in between bending the law—just a bit—to unearth the bastards who’d enslaved her friends. The clueless cops and Feds obviously need help.

FBI special agents, Galen and Vance, have waited to play with Sally for a long time. When the mischievous submissive returns to the exclusive Shadowlands BDSM club after an ugly relationship, the experienced co-tops are pleased. Realizing she’s suppressing her emotions, the powerful Doms push her—only to find that her sassiness conceals a scarred and vulnerable heart.

Shaken by the unexpected emotional exposure, Sally flees the demanding Masters and the Shadowlands.

Both Galen and Vance have reasons not to seek a long-term submissive, but when a brutal attack by her ex-Dom sends Sally into their home, the two agents are driven to protect her. To help her. To take her under command. Falling in love isn’t in the plans.

But as the little imp brings light into their lives, they begin to want more…until they discover she’s hacked into an organization that delights in burning people alive. Continue reading

Review: This is Who I Am


 

Read from March 2-4, 2017

Synopsis: When trying to save a woman from slavers, Sam screwed up. Royally. Now Linda wants nothing to do with him. Or with BDSM. She won’t even admit she’s a masochist. As a dominant and sadist, he can give her what she needs, and when an opportunity arises, he slips into her life, intending to make amends. She’s everything he knew she would be…except for her bullheaded determination to be ‘normal’.

Now the horrible time is past, Linda just wants to return to her small conservative town, pick up her quiet life, and be normal. But how can someone who likes pain be ‘normal’? To her dismay, when someone spray-paints her home with obscenities, Sam shows up to rescue her. Again. Doesn’t he understand that the last thing she needs in her life is a sadist? He’s amused by her objections. But his dry sense of humor can’t disguise that he’s tough as nails and dominant and stubborn. He’s not going to let her drive him off this time. Soon she realizes she wants him to stay.

When he takes her to the Shadowlands, she feels as if she’s found a home…until she hears a voice from out of her nightmares. Continue reading

My most read authors 26 – 13


Goodreads has a fantastic little statistical section that shows you a number of cool stats about your reading, ranging from how many books you’ve read this year, or ever. Also, how many pages you’ve read by year, and the year of publication of the books you have read just to name a few.  One of the really awesomely cool stats that I found shows you the most amount of books you’ve read by any one author. Here’s a few from my list.

Masters of the Shadowlands 1-3: a first look into Cherise’s world of kink


I have been treating myself to reading the Masters of the Shadowlands series by Cherise Sinclair. It’s a sexy BDSM series that was recommended to me a fair while ago. I’d had it on my TBR list for an age and just felt like trying something a little different. I started reading book #1 (more info below) and I just kept reading, I ended up reading 5 of the 6 available books in the last week. I’ve also just read the synopsis for book #6 and I’ll have to read that one too now.

Cherise’s series has been making waves in the kink community and was gaining in popularity even before the 50 shades of grey hysteria! If you’d like to delve into this much more realistic (although not perfect) view of a D/s lifestyle, join the masses devouring this series. Continue reading
