French Kiss by Maddie Taylor

 
French Kiss by Maddie Taylor
 
Torn between duty and protecting the woman he craves like no other, he swears to prove her innocence at all costs and claim her as his own. 
 
Struggling with loyalty to a ghost and what she needs to be fulfilled, she finds the one man who can at last make her whole again.
 
Will they be forever ripped apart by betrayal?
 
#1 Bestselling Author Maddie Taylor takes us back to Club Decadence with this latest installment in her popular series, French Kiss - Decadence Nights 2.
 
At thirty-eight, Marilee Hoffman finds herself a widow with an empty nest and an empty heart. She is lost, floating aimlessly through life as her family and friends, even the boutique that bears her name, move on without her. After losing her husband and master of eighteen years, Mari has vowed never to open her heart to the pain of that kind of loss again. But she is still young and has needs that only a dominant can fulfill. She searches for what she craves at a distant BDSM club, but as her limits are tested, she refuses to submit fully and leaves unsatisfied time and again, suppressing the submissive and the inner masochist that she truly is.
 
MI6 Agent, Arturo Durand, is assigned to stop the leak of weapons technology that is being turned on his fellow agents with lethal force. His mission leads him to south Texas, where he calls upon Tony Rossi, an old friend and colleague, and his security team for assistance. The sadist in him is pleasantly surprised to receive a guest membership at Club Decadence, the BDSM club that Tony and his partners run. Arturo finds it is the perfect place to unwind and fulfill his needs while the investigation drags on.
 
One night, when Mari's easy, non-threatening dom is called away, she is paired with Master Arturo for a scene. Having seen him wield his whip masterfully, she knows on sight, he is dangerous to her vow to keep her heart uninvolved. There is an instant spark and as the weeks go on, Arturo breaks through the barriers Mari has erected around her wounded heart. When new leads in the investigation implicate a terrorist group and Mari's dead husband, Arturo is also shocked to find that his new submissive has become his prime suspect. Can he fulfill his commitment to the crown while protecting Mari and proving her innocence? And when his identity is revealed and she is hurt, thinking he has played her from the beginning, can he convince her that she was more than just a mission and somehow keep her as his own?

Gem Apocalypse by Ruth Silver

 
 
At seventeen, Aria Stone has broken the laws of her kingdom by refusing to come to court and offer herself as a courtesan. When guards storm Aria's house and murder her mother, she is drugged and dragged from her home, taken to the royal palace. Aria must accept her fate: be chosen by a prince of Brayleigh or die.
Prince James is third in line for the throne and forced to follow and obey his father's rule. King Gideon is known for running the country and his household with a strict hand. When the prince discovers the young woman brought in by the royal militia, she piques his interest, and his desire to bring her to his harem.
Aria awakens at the palace and is forced to strip down and bare herself to the king and his four sons. Humiliation is just the beginning of her journey to survive.
In a tale of murder, heartbreak, lust, and betrayal, Aria must come to terms with the life forced upon her, just as a prince of Brayleigh must recognize his power to change a corrupt system and discover the world outside of their kingdom.

Eclipsing the Sun by Lexie Clark

 
Brighid Brightwell has always been fascinated by tales of the creature that resides in Loch Ness. Despite her father's objections, she attends a lecture given by a famous adventurer whose life's ambition is to prove the existence of the creature. She is smitten with his soothing, sexy voice, and intrigued by his claims of having seen "Nessie". But her hopes for a relationship are dashed when she approaches him and he is interested only in her famous father. Social convention dictates that she invite him for tea to meet the great Henry Brightwell. But, Brighid has a plan to make Oliver Hock notice her!
 
Things don't go according to plan on the afternoon that Oliver first visits the Brightwell home, however. Oliver will not be so easily manipulated, and remains aloof, appearing utterly uninterested in the charms of the lovely Brighid. Or so she thinks.
 
Finally, a courtship does begin and Brighid's first blush of attraction grows. Their first kiss - her first kiss - ignites more than a mild attraction. She becomes determined to find out what her two married sisters know that she doesn't yet. That is, until she learns how Oliver deals with difficult ladies who defy authority. And try as she might to forget, her burning backside won't allow it.
 
Soon, Brighid embarks on a journey, but what she finds is more than she expected. Oliver, too, finds more than the mythical creature he is searching for. Will the two find each other along the way?

Conquering Cassia by Tabitha Black

 
Conquering Cassia by Tabitha Black
 
When Cassia's father dies unexpectedly, the little girl is sent to live with Lord Alexander Surrey, as his ward. For the next ten years, she enjoys his love, luxurious lifestyle, and even his discipline, as she grows into a beautiful - albeit impertinent - young woman.
 
Upon discovering that Lord Surrey has made plans to find her a suitable husband, Cassia vows secretly to sabotage his every attempt, as she has no desire to leave either Wenham Castle or her beloved guardian.
 
Until she meets Graf Willhelm von Sachsen. The handsome German count is the first of Cassia's suitors to arouse her interest - and, she soon discovers, the first to stand up to her impudence by tossing her over his lap and giving her a sound spanking. Unfortunately, once her backside has been adequately reddened, Graf Willhelm informs Cassia that he has no intention of marrying such a bad tempered young lady, and takes his leave of her.
 
Aroused and ashamed by their first encounter, Cassia finds herself unable to stop thinking about the strong, Dominant suitor. So when she is given a second chance to prove herself worthy of his interest, she promises to do anything it takes...
 
Set in the lush countryside and luxurious castles of 15th century England, this medieval tale is one of lust, trust, discipline and love.
