Elite Elements

Book Three in the Elite Warriors Series

For most of their lives they’ve lived in the shadows, pulled from every nation and background, united by one common cause—an all-consuming hatred of Red Wolf. The unquenchable desire to rid the world of his very existence fuels them, drives them.

These men and women pulled the fallen Elite from the snow-covered wreckage of Operation Phoenix years ago. To some they’re called saviors. To others they’re called traitors.

As Red Wolf’s power grows, the end game they’ve sacrificed everything for may destroy them all. Or just maybe they’ll finally find the peace they’ve been hunting for.

Revenge is their salvation but is there enough humanity left inside them to save?

A new end. A new beginning. Elite Elements.

Summer Blurb

Longtime submissive, Patch Williams, never quite finds the release she seeks. When a new Dom comes to town, offering play she’s never tried before, it’s a battle to give into the pleasure he offers while keeping her wolf nature a secret.

Home from overseas service, Kennedy Laurie realizes a few things about himself—he only gets off when a little sadism is involved, and he’s terrified of going too far, getting lost in the play. Patch might be just the submissive he’s been dreaming of.

Patch recognizes the call to mate…but with an out-of-towner? Her body demands for her to submit, to tell him everything, but can her Dom tame the Wolf on a Leash?

Summer My Review

Patch is a submissive wolf who has being slipping through as many loopholes as she can without being in direct defiance of Drew and Ryker. While Ryker hasn’t told her not to go to the BDSM club, he hasn’t said she could either. She goes to the Club when she needs release from all the pressures around her and tonight is the night. Gee has a bad feeling and shows up warning her not to go.

Of course not being ordered by her Alpha means she will indeed go. So in her wolf mask and club clothes off she goes.

Kennedy is part owner of the club with his best friend Ogre. Now discharged from the military after his last deployment, he has no interest in playing. With his PTSD he is afraid he might get too lost in a scene and things would get out of hand. Then he meets Lupine (Patch’s moniker for the club) and feels an attraction he has never felt before. Here is a favorite scene where they meet.

“I’m sorry. I—” He cleared his throat. “Minotaur. You are?” No collar marred the delicate line of her throat, meaning she wasn’t owned.

He wasn’t sure why he cared, since he’d not come to play, but she wasn’t collared and it thrilled him.

Her lips turned up in a smile, almost as if she had a bit of a secret. His body reacted, an almost audible click inside him, and he lusted her at merely that slow Cheshire movement of her bright red lips. “Lupine. When I’m here, I’m Lupine.” The sound of her voice stroked him, despite the distance between them, and he suddenly hoped he’d get to touch the body that went with the voice.

“Wolfish, a reflection of your mask. Nice. Beautiful flower choice.” You’re beautiful. He didn’t say the words, though, shocked at his own turn of thought. He wasn’t the kind of man who felt the need for flattery or romantic notions, preferring his play rough and wild.

“I thought it was apt. So, Minotaur, we’ve never met before, and I’ve been coming here for years….” She left it at that, the question in her statement obvious, if unspoken. Who are you, and why are you in my club? Meaning she told the truth and was comfortable with her position in their society— something he and Ogre intended with the select membership and close nature of the members of their group.

“I’ve been out of town.” He might not have been at the club in years, but he remembered the rules. Nothing personal, nothing to disrupt the play with the uncomfortable realities of the outside world. They chose the location, the membership— all of it, really— with the intent of making a safe, private, and exclusive place where almost anything could happen.
Part of him longed to tell this girl more, though. To curl up beside her and tell her whatever she wished to hear, so long as she kept talking to him. The sheer strangeness of his response left him hesitant, and he took a step back, creating more space between them.

She stood, apparently not noticing his need for distance. As she moved toward him, he stiffened. However, she stopped little more than a foot away. Not crowding him, but still closer than he preferred her to come. “Nice to meet you.” Her small offered hand only proved she was close enough to touch. Close enough to taste. Close enough to smell.

The ripe scent of her— something musky and floral and female all in one sweet breath— stiffened his body further. He desired the little wolf, more than he’d craved another woman in longer than he cared to remember.

Which meant he was dangerous to her. Some of the things he’d imagined in dreams…. He pinched his eyes closed, almost as if he could escape the dark twisting paths of his own mind. Instead of answering, he turned away from her, heading to the door.

Her hand on his arm ground him to a halt, and he breathed through his mouth to resist smelling the mesmerizing blend of her aroma. “Wait, I’m sorry. I was being too forward. I’m sorry….”

She tapered off, running out of words and withdrawing her hand.

“You have a master?” The lack of collar spoke volumes, but he needed to be certain.

“No. I play, sure, but, well, I’m not anyone’s property or anything, if that is what you’re asking. I only take part in scenes, or, well….”
“Would you be interested in negotiating play, little wolf?” Even as he damned himself for making the offer, part of him surged up, ready to take her— right then if he could.

She froze at his words, looking startled. Quickly regaining her composure, however, she nodded. As she licked her full lips, further hardening his already rock-hard cock with the tempting peek of pink, she considered his body before she answered. “I would, yes.
Nelson, Virginia. Wolf on a Leash (Black Hills Wolves Book 15) (Kindle Locations 199-229). Decadent Publishing. Kindle Edition.

Now when a dominant finds his/her mate they can usually formulate a reasonable plan for making this fact known. But Patch is a submissive both in human form and wolf. This man she believes is her mate, while human is a Dom. So dominant in fact that he fullfills her every dream of a Dom. But how does she stand up to her Alpha and Enforcer in wanting a human and how does she divulge that she is a wolf to the man of her dreams.

A very hot, sexy read. One I couldn’t put down and one that showed how powerful a submissive really is.

Summer About the Author

Virginia Nelson Virginia Nelson

Virginia Nelson believed them when they said, “Write what you know.” Small town girl writing small town romance, her characters are as full of flaws, misunderstandings, and flat out mistakes as Virginia herself.

When she’s not writing or plotting to take over the world, she likes to hang out with the greatest kids in history, play in the mud, drive far too fast, and scream at inanimate objects.

Virginia likes knights in rusted and dinged up armor, heroes that snarl instead of croon, and heroines who can’t remember to say the right thing even with an author writing their dialogue.

Her books are full of snark, sex, and random acts of ineptitude—not always in that order.

Rule: Protect the innocent.
Making people laugh for a living is easy, but when a beautiful stranger needs Aloysius Sutton’s help, he has to find a way to become Jude’s hero.

Review Spring Blog - Copy

I want to thank Virginia Nelson for giving me her novella in this wonderful collection to review.

The characters in this novella make some interesting mistakes right from the start.

Jude witnesses something at the gallery where she is hosting a showing. She just isn’t sure what she saw which makes her look guilty. She makes her mistake by running from something that’s not her fault. On top of that she involves her pregnant sister and brother-in-law who arrange for someone to help her hide for a while.

Al had just finished another funny video for his internet following. He has taken some time off, much to the dismay of his business partner, to go visit with his mentor who is in a coma. That’s when he remembered the “Rule” and got the call to help Jude.

Jude and AL are like oil and water. Jude is so uptight, scared and paranoid, she can’t stand anything Al does to try to ease her fears. The more he tries the more prickly she becomes.

A favorite scene is when they stop for the night, hidden from the eyes of any rangers patrolling.

“I’m guessing you couldn’t sleep?” His voice jarred her, breaking the almost eerie silence of the night, and she twisted around to try to see him in the darkness.

“Yeah, too many thoughts in my head for rest.” Sighing, she patted her rock in an inviting way. “Look, like I said before, I’m sorry we got off to such a bumpy start. I’m not usually so terse, but I was freaked out.”

The honest words didn’t cost her anything, but she couldn’t read his face in the starlight to see if it mattered to him either way.

“Have you looked up?” he asked.

Instead of answering, she tilted her head back. His thigh was warm against hers, so for a second, she didn’t register what she saw.

But then the almost magical glitter of a thousand diamonds thrown against the night sky took her breath away. It was as if the sky was split—an almost perfect line of stars at the thickest point which tapered off. She wasn’t sure if she could see colors, exactly, but she wasn’t sure she couldn’t either. “Wow. What is that?”

“You’re looking into the Milky Way. I remember when I was a kid, growing up in Dallas, I thought that the stars were all spread out, you know? Like they were no more than confetti.

Some in random constellations, sure, but not really clumped so much. I got sent to a camp in Montana when I was a kid—blah, blah, blah, poor little rich kid behaved badly and was sent away from home—and one night I looked up. And I saw this. From then I have to admit I researched more, looked at it through telescopes and whatnot, but there’s something special about a really dark sky and being able to see it with your own eyes, if that makes sense.”

His voice was soft, a rumbling whisper of sound which soothed parts of her she hadn’t realized were still edgy. Without thinking about it beforehand, she leaned her head on his shoulder and kept looking skyward. “Yeah, it does. This is spectacular. This is the stuff of artist’s dreams and creator’s inspiration.”
Hero.docx (Kindle Locations 339-354). Kindle Edition.

Al and Jude have to face their demons both together and apart. With family and others complicating things along the way, this is a delightful comedy of errors. All leading up to hot sex, heartbreak and romance to remember.

5 Contented Purrs for Virginia!

I can’t wait to read the rest of the “Rules” in this collection.
