New: Biddable Brides by Coleen Singer and At Long Last, Happiness by Sebrina Winchester

Biddable Brides by Coleen Singer

 
Four puzzled husbands. Five mischievous young wives. Justin Burke's secret sweeps through their homes to restore domestic tranquility.
Justin Burke's family had a long and distinguished reputation for domestic tranquility. His father, and his father before him, believed a good spanking properly delivered was the secret to a happy marriage. He just hadn't had the opportunity to introduce it to his new bride, so when he returned from a business venture to wild tales of how his wife had infiltrated the gentlemen's club in his absence, he knew he could not put it off a moment longer.
What he hadn't anticipated was that his friends would want to know his family's secret. As discretely as possible, he would show them and his bride later that evening.
Each husband then rises to the challenge.
Benjamin's bride is a bit of shrew. She speaks with disrespect and barely acknowledges her husband at all. Christopher's bride is a flirt and a shameless tease. Jeffrey's bride spends money outrageously.
Darren has been married the longest of the five friends, nearly five years. His wife doesn't have any one particular habit that needs to be addressed, yet their relationship is in more peril than any of the others. He had been ignoring her many annoying little habits, until the buried resentment threatens to pull them apart.
Follow along with the friends as they each interpret the Burke family secret to their own situation. And after months of new instruction, what happens when the five wives all get together to enjoy a perfectly scandalous day trip?
If you're looking for a light-hearted story, complete with stern but loving husbands and their willful wives, then you will love this Regency romance by veteran author, Coleen Singer. Pick up your copy today.

Disciplining Josie by Pasha Baker

Disciplining Josie by Pasha Baker

 
Coming from a neglectful family, Josie found herself seeking but didn't know for what until she met the Sergeant. After reuniting with her sister, she bears witness to the struggles of her favorite sibling. Due to her sister's wild ways, Josie is thrust into the hands of a man who lives life in almost an opposite fashion. As a dedicated military man, Sergeant Terence Leifson lives a life of rules, manners and discipline when someone steps out of line.
As a leader amongst fighting men, Sergeant Terence Leifson was used to giving orders and being obeyed, including in the bedroom. About to go on leave, he invites the young woman to come with him to his cabin. It is his intention to begin her initiation into a better way of living with firm discipline and lessons in pleasure.
While the both of them came together for nights of naughty fun, they didn't expect it to become anything more than that. How will he respond when he discovers that Josie is a passionate woman and not one of his hardened recruits?

Patty Devlin's Review of Consequences by Aleatha Romig

 
by 
15204730
's review 

it was amazing
bookshelves: way-outside-the-box
Read from April 16 to 20, 2016

I can't remember the last time a book has entranced me the way this one did. I haven't had a lot of time to read so it took me 4 days to read this. The point in saying this is that I HAD to put it down and come back to it many times, but while I was away from it, I couldn't set it aside in my head. And when I finally was able to finish it, I had to talk about it with some one else!

I like books with strong controlling and even sadistic or border-line abusive heroes. That being said, I hated Anthony Rawlings, I hated Claire Nichols, and I hated Catherine and Eric... But they wouldn't leave my head. I had to know more. I had to know what drove them. I had to know what they would do next. I had to know if Claire was ever going to stand up for herself and get out of there. Anthony, Tony, was so far beyond the loving but stern and unyielding dominant man I crave. He was abusive in all ways, physically, sexually, mentally and emotionally. This is not BDSM, or master/slave. It's not even close.

At first, I was surprised that the author didn't include the details of the abuse or sex but I later respected that. I feel if those details had been included we never could have come to even a moment of like for Tony, but somehow I did eventually come have some compassion for him and understanding of his character. I still don't feel he was ever actually redeemed and as the romance genre is rather known for a HEA there is not a happily ever after in this book. I believe the author said in a panel I attended that the book had a "Happily for Now" which would have sufficed, however, this is not a HFN in my opinion either. The end is a shock and for that, I say - well done. I didn't even question buying the second book for a second.

Whether of not I liked the characters, the book was gripping and well written. I will definitely read more by Aleatha Romig, (I've actually read book 2 now already and will post a review on that soon).

Prima by Carolyn Faulkner

 
A devastating plague has changed the world's society. In rebuilding the population, the government has deemed that all women are to be nothing more than slaves, bought and paid for, with one purpose...to breed.
 
Prima is such a woman, sold by her father to Joseph, a man who intends to get full use of her in every conceivable way.
 
Truly, the world as we know it has changed. But as Prima learns to adjust to her life and the harshness of Joseph's punishments, as well as the tenderness he occasionally exhibits, will she discover that she feels more for this demanding man than she is willing to admit?

Marri's Approach by Cerise Noble

 
Marri believes she knows more about protecting a city-state than its governor. Roy founded and has ruled the community at Brackish Bay for a generation, so he also believes he knows a thing or two about defense.
 
Supported by a small and loyal group of women soldiers, Marri decides to test her belief and attempt to prove how weak the city's defenses are by infiltrating, undetected, all parts of the sprawling community. She agrees not to harm any citizens in the effort. If she does, and Roy captures her, she could face a death sentence. In any event, being captured trespassing in Brackish Bay means slavery for the rest of her life.
 
Will Marri manage to keep her violent instincts under wraps long enough to not only prove Roy's defensive structure is far too weak, but also to escape from Brackish Bay unscathed?
 
Come with Cerise Noble on another exciting, erotic adventure in the post-apocalyptic future.

Finally! Maren Smith Continues the Masters of the Castle Series With Maddy Mine

 
Dear Reader:
 
Book 7 of the Masters of the Castle series is here! I have to say, this series has been a blast to write. Nearly every day I get emails from readers asking questions regarding my ideas or progress on the next book, so for this newsletter I thought I'd take a minute to answer a few of the most popular.
 
Q: Where did you get the idea for this series?
A: About five years ago, my husband dragged me kicking and screaming (well, all right, he dragged me quietly sulking) to my first BDSM munch meeting. We drove three hours to the event and I chickened out. I refused to attend, but sat instead in our hotel room and worked on whatever book I was writing at the time while he enjoyed his time with that delightful group of people. And I do mean he enjoyed it. Thoroughly. So much so that when he came back, he waxed poetic about how much fun it was and somehow managed to convince me to give them a try.
 
So fine, the next month I did. ...And I was hooked. It was fun and funny, and informative, and I have continued to attend religiously every month, twice a month, ever since. The people are awesome and over the years, they have introduced me to all sorts of crazy kinks-many of which I have tried, some of which I've liked, and all of which I then get to share with you. My vision for this series is to introduce my readers to the wide and wonderful variety that is This Thing We Do. My first love will always be spanking, but I've come to discover there's a whole lot more out there waiting to be sampled and enjoyed.
 
Q: Where in Ohio is the Castle located?
A: I have been deliberately vague on this. Sometimes I create towns, sometimes I borrow existing ones. In this case, I created the town, so I left the precise locale unspecified. Open up a map and plant your finger somewhere in Ohio. The Castle is around there somewhere.
 
Q: Why aren't all the Masters/Mistress of the Castle books numbered, including those by other authors?
A: The only Masters of the Castle books that receive a number (Book 1, Book 2, etc...) are the ones I write. In the beginning, I was scared to death that I might lose creative control of the project, something I now realize was a foolish fear. Still, once burned, twice shy-it's a saying for a reason. I have since come to regret that decision. Sadly, it's too late to go back and change it.
 
Q: Where did the idea for Maddy Mine come from?
A: Once upon a time, well over a year ago, a reader messaged me on Facebook and said (I'm paraphrasing, because I don't remember the exact exchange), "I wish I could go to the Castle."
 
To which I replied, "I know, right? Me too."
 
"No, but really I do," she said. "I want my own Master and I want it to be like one of your stories."
 
I said, "Be careful what you wish for." But really, that's the thing about authors. If you tickle us or piss us off enough, you just might find yourself as a character in the next story. Sometimes you won't know which you've done until you're either getting spanked or messily killed off. In this case, let's just say I was tickled. I gave her Dominick, the Dungeon Master.
 
Q: Please, please, please tell us there's going to be another book!
A: Technically that's not a question but, yes. I've got several Masters clamoring in the back of my head, all demanding that their stories be told. So, for as long as you remain interested in buying and reading about them, I'm happy to keep the series going.
 
Maddy Mine has been a labor of love right from the start. I hope you (and the reader for whom it's named) enjoy it!
 
Happy Reading!
Maren Smith

Maddy Mine by Maren Smith

 
When Marshall is approached for help by another vacation resort, he responds by sending his most notorious sadist, Dungeon Master Dominick. His job: to fly to the Caribbean and help institute the same Safe, Sane and Consensual policies that have made the Castle such a success. Though not at all pleased by the assignment or its disruption to his routine, the last thing Dominick expects are complications... until he bumps into Maddy Cameron. She's plump, she's pretty, she's every bit the complication he doesn't want or need, and yet he can't help himself. Every time he gets close, he can't wait to get closer still, to touch and be touched, to taste her, tease her, torment and possess her. Not just for a few scenes or a few days, but for the rest of his life... if only Maddy's past scars will let him.
Hired to write a promotional review for a pirate-themed BDSM resort, Maddy looks on the opportunity as if it were a once-in-a-lifetime vacation - a vacation that comes complete with a tall, dark, arrogant and masterfully good-looking Dominant thrown in. It's been four years since her disaster of a divorce, and though she knows she's neither young enough nor thin enough to keep the attention of someone like Dominick, the allure of an illicit island fling is more than she can resist. Still, flings - like most relationships - don't last, and better than anyone, Maddy knows the pain of letting herself get too close.
For Dominick, however, a little pain is all in a day's pleasure. Maddy might not know him well enough now, but she's about to find out that the world's most infamous Dungeon Master never did take 'no' for an answer.
Publisher's Note: While this is the eighth book in Maren Smith's hugely popular Masters of the Castle series, it can be read as a standalone, as can all the others. The series numbers are just a guideline as to recommended reading order.
Chapter One is available for  FREE

New this evening... Bind Me to You by BJ Wane and Michelle's Stern Professor by Dinah McLeod

New this evening...
 
Bind Me to You by BJ Wane
 
Camille Statler would do anything for her sister and nephew, including going to a sex club with the intention of getting damning evidence to hold against her nephew's father to stop his custody suit. Despite her plan to concentrate only on her goal, she discovers two things the moment she steps into another world. First, much to her dismay, she discovers that Declan Whitmore, a man she met a few months earlier is not only a member... he owns The Warehouse. Second, though she's denied her needs for years after the devastating breakup of her marriage, her body turns traitor the moment Master Dec escorts her into the playroom. 

Declan can't believe the woman he's been unable to put out of his mind just walked into The Warehouse. He has absolutely no problem welcoming her into his club, and teaching her to let herself go and find the bliss she so desperately craves. What he isn't pleased about is that, while she responds to all he does to her body, she refuses to share what he knows she is hiding from him.

Over the next few weeks, she succumbs to his dominance and responds to his controlling discipline but to his frustration, refuses to reveal anything personal about herself. The more time they spend together in and out of the club, the more Camille and Dec want each other. But soon Dec discovers her deceit and Camille is left to wonder if she waited too long to come clean with him. Can Dec see past her lack of trust to prove that he will be there for her forever? Or has her fear of repeating the past doomed her to a future lived alone?

This is the second book in the Virginia Blueblood series, where four friends have vowed to live their lives the way they want to, making their own way and their own rules. Follow Nate, Dec, Fin, and Wes as these men not only live every moment to its fullest, they find very strong, sassy, capable women who not only claim their hearts, but who also share their souls. Although this is a series, each book can also be enjoyed as a standalone.

Barred

Reblogged from: Stella Hunter's Reading List

Review:

Barred - Paisley Walker

This is a smoking hot book. Loved, loved, loved the two heroes. Where can I get me some of that?

There were a few things that took away from the book and I felt I could only give 4 stars. :( When Kimberley texts while driving, it's because she's so worried about her sick sister. But then we don't hear a peep about the sister for quite a while after that initial part. I kept wondering about it the entire time. The ending also felt a little rough and rushed to me. In spite of that, I really did enjoy the book and look forward to reading more from this author.

If you like hot menage books, my minor quibbles shouldn't dissuade you from reading this one!

Book 3 The Red Petticoat Saloon is Here: His Little Lapis by Renee Rose

 
Wednesday,  April 20th,  2016 
 
Dear reader,
 
I'm so thrilled to be a part of Blushing's new series The Red Petticoat, a California Gold Rush series. As you probably know, if you read Maggie Ryan's first two books in the series, each book follows a different "gem"-- a woman working at The Red Petticoat saloon and brothel. My book, His Little Lapis, follows the story of Louise, a young governess whose employer forced himself upon her, then threw her out on the street when she became pregnant. Louise takes on the name Lapis and adopts a "little" role at the saloon, but she longs for a "daddy" to protect and punish her. When she sees Mayor Rockwell at the bank one day with his little niece, she swoons. He is just the sort of man she'd been dreaming of!

I hope you'll dive into this western adventure. The series features some of Blushing's most popular and best-selling authors and I know you won't be disappointed!
Warmly,
 
Renee Rose

His Little Lapis - by Renee Rose
 

Once a respectable young governess, Louise Small tumbled from society's grace after her employer forced himself on her. She wound up at The Red Petticoat playing Little Lapis Lazuli, a submissive who dresses like a girl and offers her bottom up for frequent spankings. 

She enjoys her new identity, so far removed from the prim governess she'd been, but she longs for a real daddy - one who is kind and caring, yet willing to administer real discipline. When she spies Culpepper Cove's Mayor interacting with his young niece, she knows he's just the sort of man she wants. But his disdain for her and her profession put them in conflict.

Letting go of her little self, she reverts to the proper, fine-mannered governess to win his attention. But at what cost? With her little side squashed, and no hope of being accepted in polite society, she hardly knows who to be or what kind of life to lead. Is being the Mayor's wife be enough?

The Science of Submission by Victoria Winters
 
 
The destitute Lady Marjorie Hamilton is engaged to the talented scientist, Archibald Westerly in the hopes that one of his myriad of inventions will pay off and restore her family's fortune. Archie has invented everything from knee-high robotics to the Time Trekker, a machine that will make time travel possible. His sponsor, Lord Stefan Cavendish, is as interested in the success of Archie's inventions as Marjorie and is most unhappy to discover that his protege has acquired a fiancee to distract him.

When Stefan Cavendish's Secret Society sends him on a dangerous mission to retrieve some crown jewels, he decides to abduct Marjorie and bring her along on his steam-powered yacht. He reasons that with Marjorie out of the way, Archibald will be free to once again focus on his inventing. Once at sea, Stefan regresses the young woman to childhood with the help of a formidable bionic nanny who is the Ultimate Spanking Machine.

The one thing he does not plan on is falling in love with the beautiful young woman. Or that Marjorie's help will be necessary to successfully carry out his mission. As Marjorie comes to love her abductor, she finds that he requires a level of trust and submission that she is not certain she will be able to achieve. But will their budding romance fall to the wayside when Archibald successfully achieves time travel?

Tribute by Carolyn Faulkner
 
 
Every month, those in the six kingdoms who had come of age were brought to the L'Ondre, to the kingdom of the Empress that ruled over all of them. There they would be stripped of more than just their clothes - as tribute initiates, they were all the lowest of the low, bought and sold to be whores, servants, even breeding stock for families whose offspring had yet to provide an heir.

Generation after generation, no one spoke of their time as a tribute. It just wasn't done, so Princess Fleur D'Eylly Royston had no idea what fate had in store for her during the two long years she'd be known as nothing more than Fleur, to be used in any way her master saw fit.

Although he had eschewed the tradition of using tributes in his land, the Sixth Lord of Arundel, Raiz Arndt, had come to the point that he had no choice but to break his own code and avail himself of a tribute. But was that or let his proud, ancient lineage die out.

But with Fleur he got much, much more than he'd bargained for.

Lacy's Rules by Mariella Starr
 
 
Lacy lives by a set of rules she created to protect herself and her family. She has had to escape and rebuild her life twice. Now as a single mother of three, she has created a private sanctuary in a small town where eccentricity is normal. She craves peace and quiet and the love and laughter of her children. It has taken her a long time to find herself, and to know herself. She knows she has trust issues, but when the first half of your life is built on lies and deception and the second is based on hiding from your past, trust does not come easily. She let Nick in once and he hurt her. She doesn't want to let him in again. She can't afford to give second chances.

Nick thought he was in love with Lacy. When he tries to rekindle that love, he discovers that he never really knew her before. He is faced with walking away from a woman who keeps secrets or trying to strip away those skeletons from her past to discover the real woman beneath. What he finds is a vulnerability and fragility that seeks love and dominance, but it is bound with a strength and courage that goes beyond what he believed possible.

Suddenly, Lacy's past is back. Lacy's sanctuary and her privacy are invaded. The person she ran from is trying to force her back into the life she left behind. Does she have enough strength in her to fight that battle again or can she lean on Nick for some of his strength? Can the two of them stand united and fight the one person that could destroy her?
