Submissive’s Wish, #2

Heat Level: Erotic. M/F, F/F, M/F/F, M/F+M/F, M/F/F/MContemporary BDSM RomanceRelease Date May 6th, 2014
 As the daughter of an outlaw biker, Rya DeLuca is used to living a wild life, but nothing could prepare her for the danger of falling in love with Dimitri Novikov. To Rya he’s a warm, loving, sexy as hell Dom who gives her exactly the kind of bondage and discipline she craves in the bedroom, but to the rest of the world Dimitri is a feared man, a cold blooded, heartless killer who is at the top of the Russian Mafia food chain.While her hard and Dominant Master is her perfect match in every way that matters, their love can never last longer than a few days at most. Every moment Rya spends with Dimitri puts her life in jeopardy from rival gangs and Dimitri’s own family.Dimitri will have to decide if he loves Rya enough to walk away from her in order to save her life, or if their love is worth starting a war that could change the world of the Russian mafia forever.

I received this book from the publisher Fated Desires in return for a fair and honest review.

Dimitri has dark secrets, his father even more. His brother Alex is tormented.  When Dimitri meets Rya a beautiful submissive with a  a family that is not your everyday type, they both knew they were destined for something more.  The story grabbed me at page one and did not waver for a second. Words practically sizzle off the page into my vivid imagination and I was immersed in the hottest, scariest and wildest adventure into the world of Russian Doms I have yet read.

The attraction between Dimitri and Rya is mesmerizing. The trials they go through and the way they are resolved were exquisitely detailed.  A glimpse into the daily lives of Ivan and Gia from “Ivan’s Captive Submissive” when visited by the couple was just the icing on this story.

The epilogue was full of surprises and I think gives a hint of the next of the Submissive’s Wish series.

I totally loved this book.  Ann Mayburn is gifted with a way of writing that has me needing cold showers to be normal again.

Five contented purrs for this book.

  Edward “Easy” Cantrell knows better than most the pain of not being able to save those he loves–which is why he is not going to let Jenna Dean out of his sight. He may have just met her, but Jenna’s the first person to make him feel alive since that devastating day in the desert more than a year ago. Jenna has never met anyone like Easy. She can’t describe how he makes her feel–and not just because he saved her life. No, the stirrings inside her reach far beyond gratitude. As the pair are thrust together while chaos reigns around them, they both know one thing: the things in life most worth having are the hardest to hold on to.

A Note from Laura:

Hey guys! I am so excited about Easy’s book that I can hardly wait for August to get here! Easy’s character was a total surprise to me. When I initially plotted out the series, there were four surviving members of the Army Special Forces team and therefore I planned for and sold four book in the series. But then, when I sat down to write Hard As It Gets, all of a sudden the story demanded there were actually five guys, and Edward “Easy” Cantrell was born. And I’m so glad! Because Easy’s character is a totally tortured hero, which I adore writing! So I’m super happy that we added his story and this novella into the series, and I can’t wait for you to learn about Easy in Hard to Hold On To!

Blurb:
When everything else is lost, there is always hope.

While most teens want an epic senior year, Trinity Whitebone hoped for a normal one. Being seventeen was hard enough. Having the emotions of everyone around you in your head made life more than a little difficult.

Until Blain Heros enrolled.

He screamed hot-god in jeans with just his walk. His intense stare warmed her skin like a thousand suns. Unfortunately, his interest in her seemed to run from blazing to freezing in the span of moments and left her nothing but confused. She could deal with things not being normal, but when life goes from strange to dangerous…

Trinity is the direct descendant of Pandora and fated to rectify the terrors released into the world by her curious ancestor. With powers she didn’t know existed and abilities she never wanted, Trinity tries to walk away from everything her life had become. She thought she could turn her back on her fate, until a band of rogue immortals discover who she is and will do whatever it takes to control her powers. Trinity is left with one decision…Embrace fate or die trying.

Author Bio: Angela McPherson
Born and currently residing in Midland, Texas, Angela shuffles three busy children (not including her husband) all over the place. She works in a busy pediatric doctor’s office as a nurse during the day, and writes at night. She is addicted to coffee——who isn’t? And firmly believes chocolate can fix all——especially chocolate ice cream. She laughs a lot, often at herself and is willing to try anything once (she thinks). When Angela isn’t rushing kids around, working or writing, she’s reading. Other than life experience, Angela turns to a wide variety of music to help spark her creative juices. She loves to dance and sing, though her kids often beg her not to.

My Thoughts:
This book starts intriguing almost immediately with the angst all teenagers feel. With every turn of the page you experience high school life with our Heroine Trinity. Young love and of course the boys who deny the feeling, brings a wonderful reality to this paranormal tale. From the antics of her friends, to the bullies and the rogues that plague her, Trinity has an inner strength that almost glows off the pages.

A favorite part of mine is from a conversation between Trinity and Blain:
“Don’t be scared, grasshopper.”
“Blain, I’m not scared.” I listened to the empty hallway, knowing there was no longer anyone out there. “The hallway is empty. I can’t pull in emotions from thin air.” His eyes changed from clear to stormy. He took a small step closer, shortening the distance between us even more.

I loved this book and read it twice before I wrote this review. There are so many twists and turns it is impossible to guess the outcome. I am looking forward to the next book in this series.

Five contented PURRS for this book and your editors.

Review of Caught an Adult BDSM Novel By Cassandra Carr


I purchased this book as part of  a Bundle – Bring On the Heat – This review is unsolicited and my opinion.

Published by C-Squared Publishing re-released as a standalone 2/24/2014

Cassandra Carr is a multi-award winning romance writer. When not writing she enjoys watching hockey and hanging out online. Cassandra’s books have won numerous “Best Book Of” awards and her novella Unexpected Top was nominated in the E-book Erotic Romance category of RT’s Reviewers’ Choice Awards.

She thinks the best part of being a writer is penning stories about love and sex while most others struggle with commutes, micro-managing bosses and cranky co-workers.

I loved this book! Once again Cassandra has proven that hot can only get hotter.

Callie returns to her home town after an absence of three years. The first event she goes to is a party of college friends. There she runs into Jack the Dom she ran from all those years before. Immediately she knew the heat between them was still there and started to run again. Before she made it to the door he stopped her. Callie couldn’t help but givei n to the power that only this man held over her. But this time Callie wants it all. She wants his unconditional love as he has always had hers.

I think my favorite quote from this book is:

“I want a husband, children, maybe even a white picket fence. And let’s face it, Jack,” she continued, emphasizing his name, ” you’re not a white-picket fence kinda guy.”

“Maybe I’ve never found someone worth building a fence for.”

Will Jack prove his love or will Callie walk away heartbroken again?

Five contented PURRS for you my dear and for your editors as well!!!

BRAVO!!!

Danica Welsh was born to be the leopard pack healer. An accident involving a drug induced youth left her badly burned and scared—emotionally and physically. All hope of mating and family become a distant dream. When she finally starts to accepts the long, lonely existence ahead of her, a stranger crashes into her life, and her heart.

A Tiger’s Claim, book 1

As the Alpha’s only daughter Shayna Andrews has always been treated like a rare gem, protected like royalty, and she’s suffocating. Her longing to be independent has driven her to sneak out one evening after dinner. After relishing in being able to run free without an escort, she finds herself face-to-face with the enemy, miles from home, and nearly loses her life until a lone wolf comes to her aid. But when he discovers she wears the enemy’s brand, things will go from bad to worse.

A Mating Dance, book 2

Senior enforcer, Cameron Nickels has found her perfect mate. Blaine Andrews, leopard Pack Marshal, is strong, dominate, loyal, and passionate.

When architect and sexy mountain lion shifter, Graham Griffin, comes to town to design the new den nursery and school, Cameron finds herself in a mating dance that throws her and her jaguar into flight mode while Blaine must decide if he cannot only share his mate, but welcome another.
