Finn Bollinger.
Military codename: EAGLE.
A single dad, a
warrior, a hero.
For Charlotte Devereux he’s also the man whose heart she broke years
before. And now, he’s her only chance for survival.
When former Special Forces soldier Finn Bollinger is asked to help with
an undercover mission, he’s up for the task. His job teaching survival skills
to civilians at Linear Tactical keeps him sharp, and he can still handle
himself in the field. 
But the Army damn well didn’t teach Finn how
to handle Charlotte Devereux. She’s back and she’s all sorts of bad
news. 
Charlotte can’t change the past. Can’t change the choices she made or
the fact that they cost her everything. All she can do is endure the fallout.
Even if that means putting her future in the hands of Finn, the man who has
every right to want to destroy her.
And can in so many more ways than he thinks.
When Finn’s undercover mission goes impossibly wrong, he’ll have to
depend on Charlotte’s strength in order to survive. But everyone has a
breaking point.
He’s fighting
for what’s right.
She’s fighting
just to survive…

The second book in Janie Crouch’s Linear Tactical series is all about second chances. Charlotte “Charlie” Devereaux is back in town, and Finn Ballinger wants to know why. She’s come to tutor his son, but she has a master’s  degree in education.
Things have gone very wrong for Charlie, and all she wants is to get her life back as a teacher, and maybe for Finn to believe in her again. But someone wants her finished, and it’s up to Finn and linear Tactical to find out.
This was a fun read, even though there were a few times I wanted to throttle Finn.

library books…

natural ability to unlock a woman’s hidden desires, but my life takes a
complete 180 when I’m introduced to my true calling.
In my journey to
become a Master, I make it my mission to indulge my submissives, as well as
challenge them.
But I’ve discovered
something equally valuable in the process. Family.
When everything
I’ve worked for is threatened, I am ready to fight—and I am a man who will do
whatever it takes to protect what’s mine.

I have to say, I have always been a huge fan of Red Phoenix’s, and her series about Brie’s Submission is one of my absolute favorite. Now, we get to see a whole new perspective! We go back in time a bit to when Sir Thane Davis was just college kid Thane Davis.

We see from his view how he meets his college roommate, his vodka swilling lab partner and more! It was a blast getting to see back to the early days back before Sir and Brie.

I totally LOVED this series and I cannot WAIT to see what comes next in this trilogy.

Excerpt
From the 1st Chapter: Surprise
Encounter
(The
Library Scene)
I watch
with interest as she gives me a flirtatious grin, adjusting her glasses before
getting up and heading to the reference section of the library. She’s wearing a
midline skirt that is conservative but still sways enticingly as she walks away
from me.
Taking her
cue, I set down my pen and leave my calculations on the table a few minutes
later. I survey the other students here, noting that they all seem preoccupied
and are not interested in what I am doing.
The
librarian, however, stares me intently as I walk past her. I give her a slight
nod, acknowledging her station, and watch with a sense of satisfaction as she
blushes.
Heading
deep into the reference section, I find my chestnut beauty hidden in the back.
A smile spreads across her face as I approach.
As she
opens her mouth to speak, I put my finger on those red lips and shake my head.
There will be no words between us.
I replace
my finger with my lips, pressing my mouth against hers.
Kissing her
gently at first, I feel her body respond to mine, and I slip my tongue into her
mouth.
She moans
softly, so I pull away shaking my head. The only way this continues is if she
stays totally silent.
Looking at
me with those sultry eyes, she tilts her chin up, begging for another kiss.
I claim
those sensual lips again while my hand begins exploring her curves. As my hand
moves downward, I grasp her waist, pulling her against me so she can feel my
growing excitement.
It has been
a while since I’ve felt the thrill of penetration, and my cock aches in
anticipation of it.
Hiking up
her skirt, I push her back against the shelves, the scent of old books
surrounding us as I feel between her legs. Her panties are already wet, letting
me know she’d been fantasizing about this encounter ever since she sat down
next to me.
Naughty girl…
I slip my
hand under the thin material and struggle not to groan when I feel the slick
warmth of her pussy. My body burns with desire.
Knowing
time is of the essence, I slip her panties down to her knees and unzip my
jeans.  I pull a condom from my wallet
and watch her eyes widen as I roll it down over my hard shaft.
Sliding the
head of my cock against her tight opening, I take a few moments to build up the
sexual tension. The sound of a low cough echoing from somewhere in the library
only adds to the excitement of what we are about to do.
Looking
deep into her eyes, I lift her leg to open her pussy to me and slowly push my
cock into her.
She makes
the barest of sounds and I immediately pull out, raising my eyebrow. Looking at
me desperately, she bites her lip to show she’s serious about keeping silent.
I kiss
those red lips again as I slide my shaft back into her, pushing even deeper.
She trembles with need when I begin thrusting. The excitement of having sex in
the college library has both our hearts racing.
The small
beads of perspiration on her skin cause those sexy glasses to slip down the
bridge of her nose. I take them off and carefully set them on a shelf before
gripping her buttocks tight. I begin stroking her deeper while keeping eye
contact as I climb toward climax.
I want her
to join me and pull out slightly so I can reach down between her legs and play
with her swollen clit while I continue to thrust into her with my hard cock.
Unfortunately,
the cougher seems to be on the move and, by the sound of it, he’s headed
straight toward us.
It seems
the idea of being caught turns my chestnut beauty on, because her pupils grow
wider just before I feel her pussy squeeze my shaft with her orgasm. My body
instinctually responds, thrusting deeper as I follow with my own climax.
I quickly
pull out, slipping my cock back into my pants, condom and all. She barely has
time to pull up her panties and fix her skirt before he walks by our section.
I lean into
her, kissing her passionately to hide the reason for her panting breath, then
turn to give the guy a hard stare, letting him know he’s interrupted us.
He shrugs,
giving me an apologetic grin before covering his mouth and wandering off amid
another bout of coughing.
I look down
at her and smile as I gently place the glasses back on her face. Giving her one
last kiss, I signal that she should leave first. She glances back at me with
that coy grin just before disappearing around the corner.

Cover Reveal:Black Light: Fearless by Maren Smith💕

Knotty Girl Reviews is squirming in our seats for this hot new release in the Black Light Series!

Black Light: Fearless by Maren Smith

Coming November 16

He was the last thing she thought she needed, but she was everything he wanted.

Abused and alone, Kitty had no idea how far she’d have to flee after she finally got the courage to run. She never would have guessed she’d end up halfway around the world, or in the home — much less the arms — of dominant Australian whip-master, Noah Carver.

He knows she’s damaged, that she needs safety and time to heal, but the way her submission calls to him has Noah thinking more about what could be between them than her history.

The only question now is what she fears more: standing up to her abusive ex-dom, or staying with a man she’s afraid to love?

About Maren Smith

Until the moment he realizes he’s been betrayed.

A chance meeting… a technology that makes the Manhattan Project look tame… and suddenly Aaron is chasing Cassie back to fourteenth century France. To save her? Aaron had thought he’d met the woman he was going to spend the rest of his life with. But now, his only choice is to kill her.

More Than Crave You by Shayla Black

MTCY_blog tour.jpg

Logical. Rich. Driven. And he wants her. . .

More Than Crave You, an all-new sexy standalone from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Shayla Black is available now!

04 MoreThanCraveYou

I’m Evan Cook—billionaire tech entrepreneur and widower. Professionally, I’ve got it all. But since my wife died, my personal life has fallen apart. Remarrying seems like the obvious answer, so I place an ad. I’m not asking for much. The ideal woman only needs to be smart, organized, pretty, and helpful—both in and out of bed—without expecting romance. I never thought to look right in front of me…but it turns out that Nia Wright, my sexy, sassy assistant, just might be the perfect candidate.

After an unexpectedly hot night together, I’m ready to stop interviewing strangers and simply marry her. On paper, she ticks every box on my list. Best of all, she’s far too sensible to fall for me. I didn’t see the flaw in my logic until it was too late. I never thought I’d lose my heart for the first time. And I definitely never imagined Nia could consume me. But she’s harboring a secret that could tear us apart. Can I prove I more than crave her before it’s too late?

KG Logo

The fourth book in Shayla’s More Than Words series deals with widower billionaire Evan Cook. He’s not looking for love, but he is looking for a wife who will fit a specific set of roles, but not love. When he sets his assistant Nia to the task, she lets him know he has it all wrong. And after Evan’s friends take him out one night, he realizes that Nia just might fit the bill. This was an enjoyable read, though not my favorite series by Shayla

Excerpt:

I charge down the hall toward what might be the stupidest mistake of my life.

I move through the sea of bodies, shrugging past the Latina dancer, a few of the French maids, then bump into my assistant’s handsy dance partner. I stare him down. He looks at me blankly. One thing I realize instantly? My gaydar is absolutely silent. He’s every bit as straight as I am.

As he hovers protectively around Nia’s dressing room, I snarl and shoulder my way past him.

He grabs my arm. “Where do you think you’re going?”

“To see Nia. Let go.”

His eyes narrow. “Is she expecting you?”

No. In fact, I’m about to shock the hell out of her. I don’t know if I’ll be unwelcome, but I’m going to test Bas’s theory that she wants me. If he’s right…this could get messy really fast.

I shake him off, barrel inside the room, and shut the door. Behind me, I immediately hear the asshole jimmying the knob. I throw my weight against the portal to keep him out and lock it behind me.

Nia whirls to the sound of my intrusion, dressed in an inch of stage makeup, a silky white robe—and nothing else.

The moment she recognizes me, her mouth drops open. Shock spreads across her face. “E-Evan?”

“Nia.” I can’t find more words. I can’t do anything except stare and put one foot in front of the other. I certainly can’t defuse the anger and possessiveness I know I have no right to feel.

“What are you doing here?”

“That’s my question for you,” I growl. “Why the fuck are you taking your clothes off for strangers?”

She rears back and blinks at me. I don’t think she’s ever heard me curse. I keep the office professional, totally aboveboard. But I can’t manage decorum now when she’s breathing hard and her nipples are poking her thin robe.

She raises her chin and glares at me. Everything about her demeanor is like waving a red cape in front of a bull.

“It’s burlesque, not stripping,” she snaps. “I don’t do this for money. I do it because I enjoy dancing.”

“Yeah? You enjoy that asshole’s hands all over you, too?” Even though the logical side of my brain tells me I’m way out of line, I point at the door behind me and stalk closer to her. “You enjoy sex standing up with him?”

Her nostrils flare. Her mouth presses into a firm line. “Last time I checked, boss, I don’t have to justify my personal life to you.”

The fact she’s right only pisses me off more. “You do when your behavior reflects badly on Stratus Solutions.”

She shoots me a quelling glare. “You’ll have to do better than that. No one in the audience knows who I am. I never take off my mask and I never use my real name. Nothing I do on stage can taint your reputation.” Arms crossed over her chest, she saunters closer. “Why don’t you be honest and tell me what’s really bothering you? I know you’re not this mad simply because I was dressed a little risqué and gyrated on stage with Kyle?”

I debate the wisdom of blurting the truth. The rational part of my brain tells me to shut up, leave, and act on Monday like nothing happened tonight. Every other part of me knows that ship has sailed. My cock is especially eager to lay my cards on the table, grab Nia in my arms…and not worry about what happens next.

“You’re right. I’m mad because I think you’ve fucked him.”

She jerks as if I’ve slapped her. “Not that it’s any of your business, but we haven’t been together in almost two years. Thanks for letting me know you think I’m a whore.”

Hearing I was right royally pisses me off. Having her put words in my mouth kills what’s left of my patience, stripping away anything resembling professional civility.

I try not to squeeze her arms as I drag her close. “I never said that. Or thought it. I’m telling you that I can’t stand knowing he’s touched you. I don’t like the fact you still have anything to do with him. I don’t even understand why I’m here yelling and angry. I’m just…”

How the hell do I put the storm raging inside me into words? No clue, but I need to get it all out somehow or I’m going to explode.

“Jealous?” Soft surprise crosses her face.

Something about her confusion rips the confession from me. “Yes.”

“Because you…want me?”

I grit my teeth and try again to think through the wisdom of spilling all this to her. But I can’t keep it in. The softness of warm silk and hot woman under my palms almost undoes me. “Yes. I know I shouldn’t. I’ve spent forty-eight hours telling myself what I’m feeling is ridiculous and I can’t allow this—whatever it is—into our perfectly comfortable, efficient working relationship. But I can’t turn it off. I can’t fight it. I can’t pretend it doesn’t exist.”

“Is that what you’d rather do? Bury your head in the sand and not feel it?” She looks hurt.

Her expression makes me feel like an asshole. Nia always asks insightful questions. Why should now be different?

I shake my head. “For the first time in months—maybe years—I feel alive.”

Nia stares at me in silence, her gaze fused to mine. I swear I see a hundred thoughts whip through her head. For once, I can’t read a single one.

“Say something.” If she doesn’t soon, I don’t know what I’ll do. I don’t even know if I can be responsible for what happens next.

“Have you been drinking?”

“Not enough to drown out how much I want you.”

“In spite of your opinion about my sexual past? And what about our working relationship?”

She’s not wrong, but they’re barbed questions. I have to maneuver around them carefully. “Nothing matters to me except touching you right now.”

Before Nia can chew on my answer and remember all the reasons she should say no, I pull her against me. She gasps. The instant her soft body makes contact with my hard, aching cock, I groan and hold her tighter, cupping her face and lowering my mouth to her parted lips.

Masters of the Castle: Witness Protection Program Anthology

 

Title: Masters of the Castle: Witness Protection Program
Authors: Allysa Hart, Rayanna Jamison,

Maren Smith, Tabitha Black, BJ Wane,

Golden Angel, Raisa Greywood, Piper Stone,

Katherine Deene & Kate Richards

Publisher: Blushing Books

Genre: Romantic Suspense/BDSM

Release Date: August 7, 2018
Blurb
Ten of your
favorite authors. Eight brand new stories. One really, really bad man.
Where will you
be when the bomb goes off?
When Master
Marshall gets an emergency phone call, he can’t believe his ears. His cousin,
Grace, has become the only surviving witness to a terrible murder and she is
refusing police protection. Fortunately for her, as far as Marshall is
concerned there is no place in the world safer than a medieval castle full of
protection-minded Doms. Unfortunately for them all, the assassin hunting her
from the shadows disagrees.
This steamy Masters
of the Castle anthology includes the following brand new, full length books:
Taming Terri –
Allysa Hart & Rayanna Jamison
Partners. Best
Friends. Ex-Lovers. K9 unit Terri O’Connel and Nick Carrusso along with their
playful pup, Champ, find themselves on a case that challenges all of their
skills. 
Terri fights Nick
every step of the way, but when her behavior compromises their mission, he puts
his foot down. Taming her will be no easy feat, but if anyone is going to get
the feisty woman under control, it’s the man who loves her the most. 
Will their
relationship survive, or will they walk out of the Castle and away from each
other forever?
Embracing Eden –
Maren Smith
Intimacy was
vulnerability, and vulnerable was something Grimsley would never be.
He was tall; she
was tiny. He was neat, tidy, orderly; she was… not. His life was focus without
deviation and relentlessly managed by the ticking of his pocket watch; she was
chaos, from the curls of her unruly hair to her little bare feet, and if she
got distracted and walked into him one more time, by God, he was going to bend
her over the first sturdy piece of furniture he saw. For a man who shunned
intimacy, getting Eden into his arms was fast becoming all he could think
about.
They say opposites
attract. When it came to Eden, attract was far too tame a word…
Tempting Tasha –
Tabitha Black
Has the Big Bad
Dungeon Master finally met his match?
Desperate to find
her brother, Tasha lies her way into a job at the renowned Castle.
She has no clue
about the lifestyle but she only needs to fake it for a couple of days – long
enough to get the information she’s after.
Unfortunately, she
gets assigned to the Dungeon, where the dark, brooding Master Eamon is watching
her every move…
Controlling
Carlie – BJ Wane
The only way to
keep her safe is to bend her to his control…
Nothing could’ve
surprised Luke more than seeing the girl he’d sworn to protect at the Castle,
perched on another Dom’s lap. Anger and jealousy urged him to intervene when
Carlie’s stubbornness forced him to take her on as his sub for the weekend to
honor his promise to her brother to keep her safe. It takes a possible threat
followed by a misunderstanding to get Luke to see what’s been right before his
eyes all along.
Freeing Fawn –
Golden Angel
FBI agent Dane
Morgan comes to the Castle to save a life. Fawn Pike is there to take one.
Something about the
raven-haired beauty catches Dane’s attention right away – but is it suspicion
or desire driving his actions? Their scenes together are incendiary, their
attraction overwhelming, but with the lies building between them, even the
Castle’s magic might not be enough to give them a happily ever after.
Harboring Holly
– Raisa Greywood
Can he save her
twice?
Two years ago,
Agent Flint Turner met his dream girl. The only good he’d ever done during his
undercover assignment was to help her escape one of the most vicious criminals
in FBI history. 
 
After witnessing the murder of her best friend, Holly Dansen finds safety in
the Castle. When she sees the killer and his henchman, she thinks her life is
over, but is determined to protect her newfound family.
 
But Mario isn’t what he seems, and she doesn’t know what to believe. The
chemistry is bubbling between them, but can she trust him to keep her safe?

Capturing Cassandra – Piper Stone

She’s longed to
submit to a powerful man. Her choice? The assassin she’s hunted for years.
He’s cunning, he’s
wealthy and he’s dangerous. When a mafia assassin is tasked to eliminate
another, assuming the role of a Master within the Castle, he’s prepared for
just another assignment. That is, until he meets the woman selected to become
his submissive. Beautiful and intelligent, she’s also his nemesis, an FBI agent
hunting him for years.
What she doesn’t
understand is that after this weekend, she will belong to him.
Guarding Grace –
Katherine Deane & Kate Richards
How can a blind
woman be a witness?
Worse… how can
Grace keep from being the murderer’s next victim? Even in the Castle, in the
care of a Dom who’s survived one of the world’s most extreme war zones, she’s
stalked by the determined and ruthless killer.
Grace and Chris
have the beginnings of a hot and passionate relationship… if he can keep her
alive.

The Masters of the Castle are back! Maren Smith and friends much loved series about “The Castle” is back with 8 new stories and 10 writers!  All of the short stories are central to one theme. A young, blind woman is witness to a crime and her cousin, Master Marshall decides to hide her out at the Castle.

Most of the authors have the women posing as “Little Maids” most undercover to try to catch the assassin. Such as Marin, Allysa, Rayanna, Kathryn, Kate, and Tabatha. My favorites in this series were BJ Wane’s Controlling Carlie and Piper Stone’s Capturing Cassandra, both of which stood out for me out of all 8 stories.

But the whole book is entirely worth reading from the epilogue to the very end! Maren did a great job assembling this cast of amazing authors!

THE TIES THAT BIND by Rebecca Norinne

Add the book to Goodreads

Blurb:

When my twin brother Jayce orders a hit on Arabella Wilson—the daughter of our family’s greatest rival—I have no choice but to obey.

Or so I let him think.

What he doesn’t know is Arabella isn’t just the enemy … she’s also the only woman I’ve ever loved. She might be guilty of yanking my bleeding heart right out of my chest, but she doesn’t deserve to die.

The longer I delay carrying out Jayce’s orders, the more erratic he becomes, until he issues an ultimatum I can’t ignore: either I kill Arabella or he kills me.

And since that’s not how my story ends, I have a choice to make. I’m a killer. It’s what I do. So who lives, and who dies? Will it be my brother or my lover, my darkness or my light?

Siren Beloved (Texas Sirens 4) Lexi Blake writing as Sophie Oak

 

Aidan O’Malley walked away from his fiancée, Lexi, and their best friend, Lucas, after a night of passion left him shaken to his core. Years later, Aidan returns home from Iraq haunted by all he has lost. The enemy broke his body, destroying his dreams of a career in music. Worse still, he lost Lexi and Lucas. That damage he’d done all by himself. While he can’t restore what combat took from him, he’s determined to reclaim the two loves of his life.

Lucas Cameron is a changed man. After connecting with his brother, he found the discipline to get his life on track. His legal career is flourishing, but his love life is a train wreck. The woman he loves is spiraling out of control. After Aidan abandoned them, Lucas and Lexi clung together but no matter how hard he tries, Lucas can’t find a way to heal the wounds that Lexi carries.

Lexi Moore feels like a jigsaw puzzle with too many missing pieces. Losing Aidan was hard, but the true reason for her shattered spirit is a secret she only shares with her beloved Lucas. She knows she is drowning and the time has come to heal, but the holes in her heart hold her back from moving on. Shedding the burden she carries is her only hope for a happy future, but she fears she will never have the strength to reveal her secret.

When Aidan walks back into their lives, Lucas and Lexi know everything is about to change. But as they fight to reconcile their past and reclaim what they lost, a vicious predator stalks Lexi. In order to stop the killer, all three must confront the secrets they’ve carried…before they’re buried by them.

 

ReviewFBknotty1

Siren Beloved is the 4th book in Sophie Oak a.k.a Lexi Blake’s mega-hot Texas Siren’s series. For all of you out there who didn’t know, this is the book that Lexi Blake decided to take her pen name from thanks to Lexi’s character. She’s one of my very favorites as well.

Lexi has been getting herself into trouble, and her stepfather Jack and “The Club” owner Julian have decided to take matters into their own hands. Even though Lexi has Lucas, he can’t quite top her and keep her in control. Both of them are still not quite over missing Aiden, Lexi’s fiancee who walked out on them both.

That’s where Master A comes in. Lexi has to agree to let him dom both her and Lucas or she’s out for good. She reluctantly agrees, but both her and Lucas are in for a surprise.

There’s lots of drama, adventure, romance and sex scenes that will blow your socks off! Sophie/Lexi has rewritten Siren Beloved and updated it to makes it better, (As if that were possible.) Some friends from her Masters and Mercenaries series make appearances as well, adding to an already wonderful story!

Lexi realized she was in serious trouble the minute the words left Lucas’s mouth. Hell, she’d realized she was in trouble the minute she opened her mouth. What was she thinking? She knew damn well how to behave in a dungeon, but something about this Master made her want to push him. Damn it. She’d been this way all of her life. She had to push. She thought about taking a step back, but before she could make her feet move, Master A had her in a fireman’s hold.

“Hey!” She shouted as her world upended. She turned her head up to throw a desperate look Lucas’s way.

Lucas stood there, a stony cold look on his face. In that moment, he was all Dom, and she’d never seen him look hotter. There was a confidence about him she had rarely seen when he was around her. Lucas was utterly in command at work, but his surety faltered when she walked into the room. Even when he performed a scene with her, she knew he worried about her comfort. He didn’t look worried now. He looked ready.

Her heart started to pound as Master A turned, and she lost sight of Lucas.

“I need a chair, Lucas.” The words came out of the Master’s mouth like a judge delivering a sentence.

“Yes, Sir.” Lucas’s words were silky smooth. There was not a hint of hesitation now. She could hear him moving to do Master A’s bidding.

“What do you think you’re doing?” she asked, though she was a bit less hostile now. She’d fucked up. She was glad Julian wasn’t around to witness it, though Leo would probably tell him. Tears pricked her eyes. Damn, she was proving to Leo she couldn’t handle the lifestyle. “Look, Sir, I’m sorry. It was wrong of me to be rude to you, but I was merely pointing out that Lucas and I had a plan for tonight.”

Reason. She could reason with him, surely. It worked on all the men in her life. Of course, usually she was looking at them instead of trying to plead her case to a group of back muscles. The muscles were unbelievably tight, but his skin—oh, his skin had been decimated in his lower back. It was a mess of white, puckered flesh, and she could see both neat, surgical lines, and jagged edges. She reached out to touch the mass of scars, but she was jerked back over his shoulder and set on her feet before she could make it. She wobbled on her heels, but Master A’s big hands held her shoulders.

“I don’t think you understand how this is going to go, sub. I am the Master, and you are the one being punished. I won’t put up with a spoiled princess telling me how her punishment will go. It will go the way I say it will go. First, you will pay for the insult to me, and then we’ll proceed to the sawhorse.”

“I don’t like the sawhorse.” The words came out breathy and small, because she was beginning to understand that this was serious.

Master A didn’t look like he was planning on giving in. And she hated being called a spoiled princess, but a part of her worried that he was right. The last few years, she’d allowed herself to become spoiled and dependent. She’d fled from everything that hurt her. She’d hidden. She’d let her stepfathers and Lucas coddle and provide for her so she didn’t have to face the truth.

Master A didn’t flinch. “I don’t care. Lucas has done the best he can, but the truth is he wasn’t trained to be a Dom. He might enjoy it from time to time, but he prefers bottoming. You require a firm hand. If you don’t want it, then you’re free to leave. No one is holding you against your will. This is all about consensual play, so you have to make the choice. Do you want the session to continue?”

She hated this part. This was the part that she’d never understood. She had to make the choice, and she couldn’t put it off on anyone else. She wanted for him to simply do it. Then she could blame him later, but that wasn’t what The Club was about. She’d been coming here for over a year, and she finally had to decide to make the choice—stay and put herself in the hands of a stranger, or go and never know what it was like. And then there was the fact that Master A was right. Lucas needed something she couldn’t give him.

She cast her eyes down submissively. How bad could it be? “Yes, Sir.”

“Then strip.”

Gabe’s Revenge by Doris O’Connor

gabesrevenge1l__68703.1529463427.300.450

Revenge is best served cold…

Gabriel Henshaw is nothing but a monster—a ruthless killer—that’s what Lissa Andrini has always been told. Sold to the man by her own father, she fears for her life, yet she can’t help the insane pull she feels to him. It has to be some form of Stockholm syndrome, surely? It couldn’t possibly be the effect of his Dominant nature effortlessly pulling her under his spell and awakening her latent submissive side.

Beating Andrini to a bloody pulp soothes Gabe’s rage temporarily, but that leaves his daughter. Were it not for a promise to her mother, he’d refuse this payment, not least because Lissa Andrini awakens all of his protective and carnal instincts. The perfect counterfoil for his darker needs and desires, she has the power to bring him to his knees.

Can love flourish when you’re a pawn in a dangerous game?

Be Warned: BDSM, spanking, anal sex, Daddy Dom/little girl play

Gabe’s Revenge is the second release in mega-hot author Doris “Get Out Your Fans” O’Connor’s McLeod Security series. (And I mean it, you’ll want a fan handy for this one, or at least air conditioning!)

This is a May-December romance that has some undertones of Beauty and the Beast going on, but definitely with it’s own steamy take. Gabe is in charge of several businesses in London’s underbelly. One of his debtors has a daughter, Lisandra, or Lissa. When her father becomes deeply indebted to Gabe, Gabe decides that Lissa is his payment, even though he’s the one who introduced her parents.

Lissa is furious, and when given the chance, paints Gabe as a monster, but is he really? As Lissa gets to know the alpha, dominant Gabe, who will she turn to?

Once again, Doris has written a spellbinding book that I just couldn’t put down! You don’t want to miss this one!
