Liberty Lafayette was used to transformation. After remodeling herself for years she felt she finally had the ideal disguise, the perfect armor to stay safe.
That all changed when she encountered him.
Calix Xavier is a man used to getting and having his way. He’d been the protective Daddy type as long as he could remember. As a lifestyle Master and Daddy Dominant he could have his pick of any submissive he chose to be kneeling at his feet.
He was compelled to choose her.
She was the toughest nut of the bunch—with the sweetest spirit and he could see all she hid.
She’d have to choose to show him, submit to him of her own free will.
How long could she run, carrying the armor encased wings on her heart? How long could she hide the broken pieces and twisted halo?
How much pain could they both endure before she surrendered to—becoming—something completely new?
Experience the journey of Liberty as she learns the depths of submission and what it can truly mean to be a slave.
Life may have forced her to her knees but could she be inspired to them by Calix’s love?
Seriously Calix… LOVE HIM!!

I write beautifully flawed characters who ultimately find, perfection is not a prerequisite. Our flaws are what make us unique and some flaws compliment each other better than others.
I love BDSM (Male dominant/female submissive.) There’s something that just feels so right about a man wearing the pants (especially when he wears them well and fills them nicely.) I am interested in the psychological aspects of relationships in general and especially when there is a power-exchange dynamic.
My world would stopping revolving if not for heavy rock music (and the wonderfully talented people who make it.) Music and its makers will definitely be strongly visible in my work. I listen, I remember…I listen, I’m inspired…to write…to love…to f**k…to live.
BLOG TOUR FOR SETTA MUTHAFUCKIN JAY!!
Today we are celebrating her newest release “Binding Ecstasy“.
HELLO COVER PORN 😉
Trust me… whats on the inside of the book is even better.
*Erotic Paranormal Romance*
A Beautiful Weapon Contained.
Natasha and her sister were created with sinister purpose. They were Apollo’s most deadly and potent weapons. Finally escaping the evil God long ago, they made a secret life concealed among humanity in Earth Realm. There, Tasha has spent her nights watching the mortals at her club engage in erotic scenes that leave her aching… desperately longing for someone with the power to dominate her and give the pleasure she craves. For her own safety she knows she’s destined to live her life in the shadows, but when she sees a male who sparks an insatiable hunger she is unable to remain hidden. A Powerful Guardian Restrained. Bastian and his fellow Guardians have spent the last month in a fruitless search for Apollo. They know that something dangerous is on the horizon and it is imperative they lock away the corrupt God immediately. After recently witnessing a number of his brethren find their fated mates, Bastian never considered that he would also be blessed. But when the calm and controlled Guardian meets an alluring and seductive female he learns just how wild and consuming the mating frenzy can be. However, his mate is incredibly powerful and at risk of being caged by his own brothers if he doesn’t do everything, including lie, to protect her. Immovable object, meet irresistible force. It’s a battle that both will win if they can survive the deadly forces, both friend and foe, that surround them.
Warning: This novel is intended for a mature audience. You will find kick-ass females, explicit sex, voyeurism and alpha males with bad language.
I feel that I should warn new readers who’ve not met any of the Guardians yet. When you sit down to read any of the Guardians of the Realms books there may be a few side effects, which could include but not limited to…
And sudden orgasms
If you’ve experienced any of these symptoms, then you may want to stay away from public areas. Contact your spouse/boyfriend/partner and have them assist you in releasing some… ahem… tension. Vibrators and hands are also good alternatives. I’ve heard that some Doctors are saying that Setta Jay’s books keep your vagina healthy. 😉
Now, the question here is… are YOU ready for the Guardians?
The sad truth is that I’m not nearly as entertaining as fiction. *Wink* I am a thirty-seven year old stay at home writer, thanks to my incredibly supportive husband. We’ve been together for thirteen years and I still love waking up next to that sexy man. We lost our furry child recently, so we are childless at the moment. Our whole world revolved around her. Needless to say, I love animals, especially dogs. Okay, maybe not all animals, I’m not a super big fan of monkeys. Any animal that throws their feces kind of eeks me out. I may, or may not, have a problem with candy. I love any research that leads to Neiman Marcus’ online shoe department. Spreadsheets give me way more happiness than they should. I love to read, the dirtier the better. It all started with the naughty historical romances by Judith McNaught that I devoured as a teenager. I love reading about hot, sexy alpha males and heroines that are smart enough to live.

Buy it now at Amazon.com
The tawdry tale of the Duke and Duchess of Dunwoody continues…
Maggie Armstrong, the long-lost illegitimate daughter of the heir
presumptive to the throne, is bedeviled by her husband’s limited
definition of fidelity. After observing him in a ménage à trois at the
court of King Charles II, she is determined to bring him around to her
way of thinking—by any means necessary.
Robert doesn’t mind being punished for his transgressions. Rather,
he enjoys being whipped, especially by his beloved bride. Unfortunately,
her heart might not belong to him alone. His younger brother, who he’d
sent abroad to clear the way for himself, is coming home sooner than
expected, and Maggie’s feelings for Hugh may not be as dead as her
husband had hoped.
Both duke and duchess soon learn, to their peril, Hugh Armstrong is
not the honorable man they’d been led to believe. Insanely jealous of
his brother’s situation, Hugh will stop at nothing to strip Robert of
all he holds dear—including his life.
But the real danger for Robert and Maggie is not the villainous
Marquess, but the growing friction betwixt Catholics and Protestants in
Restoration Era Great Britain.
Can their love survive the trials that await them?
Nina Mason is a hopeful romantic with strong affinities for history, mythology, and the metaphysical. She strives to write the same kind of books she loves to read: those that entertain, edify, educate, and enlighten.

(Book Two In The White Trilogy)
By: Charlotte E Hart
Lies, deceit and manipulation.
A game Alexander White knows only too well, but never has he been on the receiving end with such devastating results. Thankfully he knows it all now because she’s shown her true colours and he won’t be fooled by them again. No matter how perfect she may have been, or how close to love he may have come, Elizabeth Scott and her treachery are now nothing more than yet another move in the chessboard of life.
His business, as always, is more important than his worthless emotions and the storm brewing needs attending to. So after he’s pushed her out of his system, after he’s found his way back to the dull uninteresting type of emotion he’s used to he’ll deal with it.
In the only way he knows how. Beth Scotts life is upside down. She was a mess. She still is a mess. But now she’s just starting to get irritated about her mess. How could he do this to her? And how could she have let him? Alexander White has a lot to answer for but she won’t be one of those stupid girls any longer. She has a two week rule and it’s about time to get on with it. She just needs a distraction, someone or something to remove the pain and help her find a way forward without him. If his twisted game has taught her one thing it’s to hold her head up and ask for what she wants. So if she can just keep those thoughts running through her head, and embrace what she now needs, she should be fine shouldn’t she? She should be able to deal with everything and move on. She still has no idea what the hell she’s doing.

She’s lived all across the United Kingdom due to her previous employment as an Event manager but finally settled in a small town that still reeks of old school England. She graduated from college with a degree in Business and her Horse Riding Instructors Qualification which eventually led her into the very bizarre world of outdoor pursuit’s event management where she trained to instruct all sorts of equipment. Some of which included crossbows, shotguns, quad bikes, 4×4 driving and archery, she’s not entirely sure how any of it happened but knows that she adored every minute.
Her love of reading started in college but the call to writing came much later in life after the birth of her daughter when she finally had the chance to put pen to paper for the first time. Writing has become a revolution for the soul and she cherishes every second that she’s sitting at the laptop and tapping her way into a new character.
When not writing she enjoys socialising with close friends and travelling to all the major cities across the globe, travel has always been a constant companion to reading throughout her life and only increases her thirst for stimulation.
With the release of her novel Seeing White, the first part of the White Trilogy, she intends to spend the next year enjoying every element of being a published author and learning as much as she can. She also very much looks forward to hopefully meeting some fans at some point.
ONLY FOR US by Cristin Harber is available now! Be sure to grab the third part in Grayson & Emma’s epic love story – and if you haven’t read the first part yet, you can grab ONLY FOR HIM here!
About ONLY FOR US
The third installment of the Only series. Must be read in order.
Grayson and Emma. First love. True love. And… they have a daughter. Abandonment is his curse. He left his woman, survived his team, and missed the moment most precious to a father. Until now.
I didn’t know you were killing yourself with work. I didn’t know you’re raising our daughter. So help me God, had I known, there is no military force on earth that would’ve kept me from you.
Love needs to heal all, or they won’t survive the collision of their separate lives. Emma must reach deep into her heart that is barely hanging on and find forgiveness. Grayson, wrecked with PTSD-filled nightmares, must prove that he’s here to stay and able to rebuild his family against all odds.
I need to say I love you. But what I mean is I love you–in a way that defies definition and exists only in a world that you and I are in.
Only for Us is the third installment in the Only series. All novellas will release Spring 2015.
“I’ve done nothing for you to give me that trust, but I need you to anyway.”
I’m not pressed against his chest anymore. The warmth that encapsulated me moments ago is gone, but I feel different. Life’s shifted—I’ve been hanging on this roller coaster for years, and now it’s as if we’re cautiously slipping toward smooth sailing. The lump in my throat eases, and my eyelids lift, my gaze falling on the most handsome man I’ve ever seen.
“What do you say?” He inches closer.
“I love you, Grayson.” Deep breath. “When it comes to us, I’m all in.”

This third novella in this series, as the others do, starts right where the last one finished. Grayson and Emma were trying to explain everything that has happened to them since they were apart. Right after Emma explains they have a daughter, the front door opens and Cally, the daughter, comes running into the house.
This novella deals with Grayson continuing to try to deal with his past and the scars that the past has left not only on his body but his soul. He has huge guilt issues over leaving Emma and the life that she was forced to lead without him.
Emma feels as though her dreams are finally coming true with Grayson’s homecoming. She ecstatic but knows that issues have to be dealt with. How will Cally react to having a father? How will her family ever accept Grayson back after he hurt her so badly? And how will Grayson react when he finds out about her occupations?
This story leaves us in another cliffhanger and boy, is it a doozy! I love Cristin Harber and will read anything she writes. She’s just that good. If you haven’t read her yet, you seriously need to get busy with that.
Book given in an exchange for an honest review by the author.
To Chuito the apartment was a self-imposed prison for a lifetime of sins. To Alaine, the girl next door, it was salvation from her overbearing, religious father.
He was a devil.
She was an angel.
Two people who should’ve never met, let alone become friends, but it’s not until they give into the dangerous passion that’s been simmering under the surface for five years that things go to hell.
On the outside, Chuito ‘The Slayer’ Garcia is on top of the world. He’s successful. He’s wealthy. He’s a champion MMA fighter surrounded by friends who support him, but they don’t know what he was before he came to Garnet.
Now his past is churning up demons he can’t ignore. Chuito knows he needs to go back to Miami to end it, but there’s something holding him back, a single temptation he can’t resist before leaving.
She’s the one drug he can’t give up…even if it destroys them both.
“To me you’re coke. Fine. Smooth. Perfectly white. Very bad for me, but so fucking sexy I don’t give a shit. It’s worth going down for.” – Chuito Garcia
“It’s a new dance. I don’t know the steps.”
“No steps. You always need rules,” Chuito complained. “Just listen to the music. Close your eyes.”
“They’re closed. I’m listening.”
“Listen to the drums. That’s the part you listen to. Feel it.”
“I’m feeling it.”
“No. Feel it like a heartbeat. Like life. You want it to be a love song, hear the sex in it. Hold me like I hold you.” He jerked her tighter against him as he said it, forcing her breasts to crush
against his chest and her dress to ride higher up on her thighs. “Like you need me.”
Alaine sucked in a hard breath and ran her hand up from his shoulder to his neck. The lust made her languid against her will, and when he moved this time, she followed because she didn’t have a choice.
“You’re not supposed to think when you dance. Supposed to just feel. To move the way I tell you to move.” He ran his hand up her back, pushing at the center of it until she arched into him, allowing her head to fall back and forcing her hips tightly against his. “Yeah, like that.
Better. I step hard. You step—”
“Soft,” she finished for him.
“That’s right. Follow my hand. Hard, soft, together we fit.” He loosened his hold on her waist, and she stepped back to the beat and then allowed him to pull her into his arms again. They did it a few times, the push and pull, stepping away from the heat and moving back together like they needed each other to keep breathing. Then he pulled her to the right and stepped to the left at the same time. When he used his hold on her waist to force her back, she stepped so that her feet were between his. He fit the two of them back together like a puzzle piece again, with his leg pressed so intimately between her thighs it was making her ache. She arched her hips on instinct, and he hummed in approval. “Bueno, asi mismo. Move them like
God made you to move them. That’s good, mami.”
Before now, they’d been dancing salsa, not this hybrid, more sensual form of moving that felt like a guilty pleasure. The beat was the same, the steps were sometimes the same, but this was so much more intimate. A tease. A candy-coated sin that wasn’t a sin because it was labeled dancing instead.
Alaine loved it.
She let herself be completely soft in his arms, moving where he wanted her to move, because it felt so damn good to let go of everything else and just be with Chuito. All she had to do was feel the drums throbbing and listen to the erotic, lulling sound of a man singing in Spanish about dancing with his woman.
They danced until the sun came up.
A freckle faced, redhead born and raised in Hawaii, Kele Moon has always been a bit of a sore thumb and has come to enjoy the novelty of it. She thrives off pushing the envelope and finding ways to make the impossible work in her story telling. With a mad passion for romance, she adores the art of falling in love. The only rules she believes in is that, in love there are no rules and true love knows no bounds.
So obsessed is she with the beauty of romance and the novelty of creating it she’s lost in her own wonder world most of the time. Thankfully she married her own dark, handsome, brooding hero who had infinite patience for her airy ways and attempts to keep her grounded. When she leaves her keys in the refrigerator or her cell phone in the oven he’s usually there to save her from herself. The two of them now reside in Florida with their three beautiful children who make their lives both fun and challenging in equal parts–They wouldn’t have it any other way.

We first meet Chuito and Alaine in The Viper (which I fucking LOVED). Chuito was an asshole and I couldn’t wait to read his story and watch him get taken down by a woman. This book starts in the present but flip flops through past and present to give us a real insight of Chuito and Aliaine’s relationship.
Chu is a drugged out, gang banging thug whose on his way to MMA stardom. Alaine is a college student studying to be an attorney. Her father is a preacher who wants her to give up her dreams of a better education and settle down with a nice church going man.
Chu and Alaines back story is really good. But there is so much more to this than just Chuito and Alaine. This book is an intricate web of people and story lines. Los Corredores, Italian Mafia, MMA, gang wars and even a little BFF bromance. This book is hot, sexy, funny and just all around good. Kele Moon is a sexpert at writing her sex scenes. Oh… my… GAWD! They are hot!
“To me you’re coke. Fine. Smooth. Perfectly white. Very bad for me but so fucking sexy I don’t give a shit. It’s worth going down for.”
“I’m gonna draw this out as long as possible.” He confessed like it was a sin. “Cause taking what isn’t mine gets me off.”
The humor! LOVED IT! It was perfectly hilarious and well timed.
“You just told me you manscaped. You’re fucked up too.”
“It’s a common courtesy,” Tino went on. “No woman wants to suck on a hairy dick.”
“She’s not gonna need feminine products,” Tino said with a bark of laughter. “I guarantee you she’s pregnant after last night.”
“Motherfucker-” Chuito started with a glare.
“I’m just saying,” Tino said with another laugh. “It sounded like she got pregnant.”
There are some parts of this book that I felt seemed to drag. Since I never read the Battered Hearts series, I wonder if that has anything to do with it. There are a lot of details that, to me, felt like a set up for books to come or it was details to explain the previous series? Either way, it was a lot and I felt myself spacing off some and having to reread. This could also be personal since I’m in a bit of a book funk. So, I’ll let you decide how you feel about that. 🙂
Overall, I enjoyed it. There are a lot of laugh out loud moments. The sex and action were spot on amazing and gave me heart palpitations! Some of the details left me spacing a little but I do believe they are all very important to the story. Kele Moon is an extremely talented writer and I would HIGHLY recommend anything she writes.

An up-and-coming MMA fighter wants more than just one night from a woman fleeing her past in New York Times bestselling author Lori Foster’s irresistible new novel.
Heavyweight fighter Denver Lewis plays real nice, but he doesn’t share. That’s why he’s been avoiding top-notch flirt Cherry Peyton. But a man can only resist those lush curves for so long. Their encounter surpasses all his fantasies, bringing out protective urges that Cherry’s about to need more than she knows…
Denver’s combination of pure muscle and unexpected tenderness has been driving Cherry wild. Yet no sooner does she get what she’s been craving than old troubles show up on her doorstep. And this time, Cherry can’t hide behind a carefree facade. Because the man by her side is one who’ll fight like hell to keep her safe…if only she’ll trust him enough to let him…
Denver Lewis is on his way to being a successful MMA star. He’s signed with the biggest promotion agency and has a fight scheduled. So professionally, his life is set. Personally, not so much. He wants Cherry Peyton but feels that she’s a big flirt. That’s something the alpha male in him just can’t handle. So he’s kind to her when he’s not ignoring her. None of his friends are fooled though and they give him the what for about it all the time.
Cherry Peyton wants Denver badly. She doesn’t understand his treatment of her though. Cherry doesn’t see her appeal and has no idea what she’s doing is flirting. Cherry has a secret in her past and is still somewhat uncomfortable with the opposite sex. She knows she tired of waiting for Denver, so she makes her play. But her past comes calling and Denver is ready to help her meet it head on.
This series is so very entertaining. Hot alpha males, strong heroines, steamy sex scenes and decent suspense. Then throw in characters from her other series which makes me happy taking a trip down memory lane. My only question to Lori Foster is, where is Harley? Another great book in a great series.
ARC given in exchange for an honest review via the publisher and NetGalley.
“Holding Strong will have you holding your breath while burning fingers quickly turn the pages.”
“…a fun and sexy read. It has a touch of suspense to it as well to keep the pace of the story going along.”
“The men of Foster’s Ultimate series may be powerful fighters, but they are all heart, and none more so than the hero of this installment. His unwavering support for his feisty, frightened heroine redeems them both in time, but it is their searing chemistry that will hold readers’ attention.”
“Foster…manages to keep characters evolving throughout the course of a novel, becoming true ‘heroes’ by the time ‘The End’ rolls around.”

BLISSFUL VALENTINE EXCERPT :
He stops and meets my gaze, then bends down and grabs a mound of snow, packing into a tight ball. He takes a step back and winds his arm, throwing the snowball straight and fast. It smacks against the metal sign on the far end of the small pond near a cluster of benches, breaking off into a multitude of pieces.
He wipes his hands off on his pants. “Give it a try.”
I shake my head. “No way, I throw like a girl.”
His picks up a mound of snow and packs it together, forming a perfect sphere. He hands me the snowball and stands behind me, pressing his body against mine. My heartbeats thump against my chest, causing a surge of adrenaline to rush through my veins. I tremble, holding the snowball in my right hand. At least I can blame the cold for my shaky arm. He runs his hand down to my wrist and pulls it back, up toward my shoulder.
He rests his head on my shoulder and talks softly into my ear. “Pull your arm back to here and step forward at the same time you throw.” He moves to the side.
Goosebumps form on my neck from his warm breath gliding against my cool skin. My stomach flutters. Here goes nothing.
I stare at the metal No Parking sign and pull my arm back, throwing the snowball as I step forward. Tiny fragments of snow fly through the air. A direct hit.
I clap my hands and bounce up and down on my toes. “Holy crap, I actually did it. I didn’t think I could hit the broad side of a barn.” Dean comes over and raises his hand to give me a high five. I lunge forward and pull him into a hug, before I realize what I’m doing. My chest tightens and heat creeps across my cheek.
He wraps his arms around my waist and presses his body against mine. I step back and ease away, dropping my arms to my sides. “We better head back, I’ve still got lots of physics studying to do if I plan on passing the semester.”
He rubs the back of his neck and nods. I slide my frozen hands into my pockets and hold them in tight fists. Note to self: when
I think I’m finished embarrassing myself I’m usually wrong.
The perfect untouched blanket of snow moves into an array of chaos as we turn the corner to my apartment. My heart beats faster with each step I take forward. This walk is taking forever. If I don’t get away from Dean soon, I may end up doing something else I shouldn’t. I mean, we’re just friends. I take a deep breath and slowly exhale as we approach my driveway.
I dig in my purse and pull out my keys. “Thanks for my victory celebration.”
He places his hand in the small of my back on our way toward my steps. “First of many.” His hand moves to my waist.
Summersaults take over my stomach. I step onto the first step. My boot slips along the rim of the concrete edge covered in a thin layer of ice and instantly it knocks me off balance. My hands flail through the air, desperately trying to grab onto anything.
Dean jumps into action, catching me before my head smacks against the hard sidewalk. I grab onto his sculpted bicep and pull myself to my feet.
Fire burns through my cheeks, which are no doubt fire-engine red. I drop my chin to my chest and hunch my shoulders. He lifts my chin and gazes into my eyes. My heart pounds against the walls of my chest. Electric shockwaves flows through my veins. He leans in closer. My lips part and lava flows through my body. He tucks a stray strand of hair behind my ear. “I knew you’d fall for me sooner or later.” He places a soft kiss on my cheek and takes a step back, turning and walking away.
