Lord Savage: Exclusive Excerpt

Mia Gabriel

Lord Savage by Mia Gabriel (e-book cover)

I’d never felt so vulnerable, at once both lost and found, as I now did sprawled half-naked across Savage in this foolish throne-chair. His strength was my solace, my comfort, and there was nothing better than hearing the beating of his heart beneath my ear.

Once trapped in a loveless, pleasure-less marriage, Evelyn Hart leaves her home in New York for the glittering ballrooms of London. When she arrives, she meets the Earl of Savage, a dark, powerful man who seems to live up to his name. Despite his noble trappings, he’s also a man who can possess her with just one look. Soon Evelyn finds herself pulled into Savage's world - a world of passion and seductive games unlike any she has ever experienced. Evelyn's heart is captured with no hope of escape. But can they overcome the tortures of the past together...?

Savage never imagined someone like Evelyn walking into his life. As soon as he sees her he knows he must have her, no matter the cost, in Lord Savage by Mia Gabriel.

Get a sneak peek of Mia Gabriel's Lord Savage (available September 9, 2014) with an exclusive excerpt of a selected scene.

“You say your husband did not satisfy you. Did you ever love him?”

I hadn’t expected that, especially not so soon after I’d awakened. I considered dissembling, the way I’d always done with Arthur; really, our entire marriage had been a lie. But with Savage I felt drawn to tell the truth, especially about this.

“No,” I said softly. “I never loved him, nor did he love me.”

First Look: Lauren Jameson’s Linger (September 2, 2014)

Linger by Lauren JamesonLauren Jameson
Linger
Penguin / September 2, 2014 / $15.00, print / $5.99, digital

On her last night in Nevada before embarking on a yearlong veterinary internship, Scarlett Malone is celebrating—and looking for one night of incredible pleasure. But the man who draws her eye is not her usual type: He’s a cowboy whose alpha-male tendencies tempt her beyond belief. Scarlett can’t understand why she wants this man and no one else, but she’s determined to entice him to submit.…

Dr. Logan Brody lives an isolated life in rural Montana, running a ranch and suppressing his submissive tendencies. Only on his occasional trips does he give into his hidden urges. He can’t deny his scorching attraction to Scarlett or that she makes him want more, but he never lets anyone break him down fully. He’s hers for one night and one night only.

But when Scarlett shows up at Logan’s door as his intern for the year, he realizes that the walls around his heart are about to crumble—and that this sexy dominant woman has no intention of letting him keep control.…

Nothing causes pages to burn quite like a submissive alpha male cowboy and a Mistress determined to make him hers.  Lauren Jameson’s Linger is a stunningly sexy concoction that weaves together two souls with a taste for volcanic-hot sex.  Scarlett Malone is just about to leave her home for a veterinary internship.  City life doesn’t teach a veterinarian all of the in’s and out’s of large animal care, and the only way to get the needed hands-on experience is to work under someone who takes care of those big animals on a day-to-day basis.  This means going out into the quiet countryside of Montana and leaving the hustle and bustle of city life behind.

Before Scarlett leaves for a year, she takes one more night to fulfill her sexual desires.  A rich friend of hers owns one of the hottest BDSM clubs in the area; she has trained to be a Mistress and has more than her share of fans.  That final night, Scarlett enters the club to see a man that she has to have.  A tall cowboy with a beautiful body—a cowboy who may very well be a Master himself—immediately catches her attention.  Scarlett is in luck: her cowboy is a submissive, if an alpha one, and the challenge he will provide her is just what she needs.

First Look: Liz Carlyle’s The Earl’s Mistress (August 26, 2014)

The Earl's Mistress by Liz Carlyle

Liz Carlyle
The Earl's Mistress
Avon / August 26, 2014 / $7.99 print, $6.99 digital

Women rarely refuse the wicked Earl of Hepplewood, whose daring exploits are only whispered about. But when his new governess answers his proposition with a slap, then stalks out, references in hand, Hepplewood finds more than his face is burning.

Isabella Aldridge has brains, bravado, and beauty— but the latter is no use to a servant. Her circumstances are desperate, and with Hepplewood's words ringing in her ears, Isabella realizes she must barter her most marketable asset . . . her body.

But when fate sends Isabella back into Hepplewood's arms, the earl must make an impossible choice—draw Isabella down into his sensual darkness, or behave with honor for the first time in his life.

Liz Carlyle's The Earl's Mistress is a bit of a departure for her. Both Hepplewood and Isabella are damaged people who have control issues. Their efforts to work them out through their sexual relationship is a riveting—and at times, disturbing—read.

Addicted to Love: Erotic Recommendations for August 2014

Beyond Addiction by Kit RochaIn need of some sexy reading material to fill your e-reader? I’m here for you. Each month I will bring you an assortment of erotic pleasure reads to tempt your palate—and your credit card....

August brings erotic addicions to a whole new level when these couples find the one they want to spend the rest of their lives with.

Beyond Addiction by Kit Rocha

She’s fought like hell to leave the past behind.

Trix changed her name and her life when she got clean four years ago. Now, she has a new family and a job she loves—tending bar and dancing at the Broken Circle. As an O’Kane, she’s happy, untouchable. Until a nightmare from her old life tears her away from her home and drags her back to Hell—also known as Sector Five.

He’s still living—and dying—in it.

Losing Trix was the kick in the head Finn needed to get sober, but working as an enforcer for a man he hates is slowly crushing his soul. The only thing that keeps him going is his determination to destroy Sector Five from the inside. Then Trix comes back into his life—alive, in danger—and nothing else matters.

Getting her home could be a suicide mission. The only thing deadlier is the old spark that flares to life between them. Soon, Finn and Trix are battling the one addiction neither of them ever managed to kick—each other. And it could cost them everything.

The Kit Rocha writing team goes to Defcon 10, and then some, in the fifth installment of their Beyond series. Pure erotic decadence is layered in sex, violence, and freedom as Rocha slowly reunites two former lovers whose addictions forced them apart. An action-packed storyline with an ongoing arc takes this erotic romance from common place to extraordinary in both writing and presentation.

Switching Sides: What it Means to be a Switch in BDSM

Today we welcome author Sidney Bristol to Heroes and Heartbreakers. Sidney's new release, Committed, has a super-sexy romance with a DEA agent hero. The heroine of Committed identifies as a 'switch,' a term Sidney is here to explain. Thanks, Sidney!

BDSM is a big umbrella term that covers a whole range of things—and all the in-betweens. In Romancelandia we’re all very well acquainted with the Dominant and submissive roles—genders aside. We’re even familiar with the ideals behind the Master and slave relationship. 

But what else is there? A lot, actually, but those four role types get the most mileage in our hot and sexy books. They’re easy to define and our traditional relationship roles translate into them. Even for those who don’t quite “get” kink, they can understand the pleasures of giving up control—or taking control—from their partner. One person does stuff to a person, while the other person enjoys having stuff done to them. That’s an overly simplistic explanation, but you get the idea.

Now, let me introduce you to the idea behind…the switch.

[Not a light switch, folks...]

First Trailer for Fifty Shades of Grey!: Does it Satisfy?

This morning the first ever trailer for the highly anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey movie, starring Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson, was released. Set to a dark remix of Beyonce's Crazy in Love, the trailer gives us a little hint of everything—including the Red Room of Pain!  The trailer seemed focused far more on the romance between Christian and Ana than on the sex, but based on the trailer, we think there will be plenty of both! Now we can all see it, and weigh in with our thoughts.

So—what do you think the movie will be like, based on this trailer? Are you pleased or disappointed? (Also, Lost Girl fans, did you spot Tamsin?)

Mr. Grey will see you on February 13, 2015—just in time to be your Valentine's Day date!

She’s the Boss: Female Domination in Romance Novels

Natural Law by Joey W. HillWhile there are many submissive heroines waiting to be swooped up by the next dominant billionaire hero, there are far  fewer female dommes taking control in the bedroom. Usually, when the word femdom comes up in romance, one author comes to mind: Joey W. Hill. Her contemporary erotic romance, Natural Law, is a classic in femdom romance.

The book tells the story of male submissive and cop, Mackenzie (Mac) Nighthorse and his Mistress, Violet. The backstory revolves around murders taking place in a BDSM club;  Mac infiltrates the club, where he meets Violet and things start to evolve between them personally, with the book taking a look at the deep levels of connection and trust between the submissive and Mistress. Paranormal fans will also enjoy Hill’s Vampire Queen series which again explores power control between strong females and the capitulation of what on the outside appear to be alpha male heroes.

If you are looking for the traditional BDSM relationship, but in a sci-fi setting, try Christine d’Abo’s Mistress Rules and Bound Odyssey by Michelle Polaris. In d’Abo’s book, the heroine, Stella, is a Mistress to the space warlord Ulric and ends up teaching both Ulric and his associate, Faris, a thing or two. In Bound Odyssey, a female dominant, a male switch and a typical alpha male come together to explore the definitions of domination and submission while facing a dying earth. The heroine, Mira and male switch, Roman, must convince the alpha male Jace to submit to ensure their survival on a female-dominated planet.

First Look: Tiffany Reisz’s The Saint (June 24, 2014)

The Saint by Tiffany Reisz

Tiffany Reisz
The Saint
Harlequin MIRA / June 24, 2014 / $14.95 print, $10.99 digital

Before she became Manhattan's  most famous dominatrix, Nora Sutherlin was merely a girl called Eleanor… 

Rebellious, green-eyed Eleanor never met a rule she didn't want to break. She's sick of her mother's zealotry and the confines of Catholic school, and declares she'll never go to church again. But her first glimpse of beautiful, magnetic Father Marcus Stearns—Søren to her and only her—and his lust-worthy Italian motorcycle is an epiphany. Eleanor is consumed—yet even she knows being in love with a priest can't be right. 

But when one desperate mistake nearly costs Eleanor everything, it is Søren who steps in to save her. When she vows to repay him with complete obedience, a whole world opens before her as he reveals to her his deepest secrets that will change everything. 

 Danger can be managed—pain, welcomed.  Everything is about to begin. 

With the release of The Saint, Tiffany Reisz begins the The White Years, the second story arc in the eight books that make up The Original Sinners series. It begins with Nora in the Black Forest in Bavaria grieving for something. She is alone until someone new to the Sinners world knocks on her door to offer her comfort. Needing to talk, Nora tells him, and the reader, the tale of how she met and came to be the property of Soren. An intense but fascinating story, Reisz tells it with flare, hilarious dialogue (is there anything better than Nora’s wit?), and passion.

Caught in a Bad Romance: When Is a Bad Boy Too Bad?

Mercy: White Collared, Part 1 by Shelly BellToday we welcome author Shelly Bell to Heroes and Heartbreakers to talk about a topic we all like discussing: bad boys. Shelly's White Collared serial is an erotica thriller, one which requires the lawyer heroine to go undercover at a BDSM club where the prime suspect in a murder just happens to be her client—and a very sexy Dom. Thanks, Shelly!

When you think of a hero from a romance novel, what qualities spring to mind? Personally, I love a dirty-talking, emotionally tortured bad boy, who—to the detriment of himself—will selflessly move heaven and earth for the heroine. Whether he’s a cowboy, billionaire, biker, or rock star, the bad boy hero has got walls around his heart that only the love of the female lead can infiltrate. Until recently, romance readers could trust the hero would die before he’d allow any harm to come to heroine, but since the emergence of dark romance, that notion has dramatically changed.

While the term “dark romance” is not currently a category defined on Amazon or used by traditional publishers, that hasn’t stopped the sub-genre from not only thriving, but arguably becoming one of the hottest and fastest growing sub-genres in romance e-books. These stories spin conventional romance on its head and often place the villain in the role of the hero. Readers’ expectations of romance are ripped away as the heroine is not only physically hurt, but oftentimes harmed and her life placed at risk by the hero.

Bound to Please by Joey W. HillIn need of some sexy reading material to fill your e-reader? I’m here for you. Each month I will bring you an assortment of erotic pleasure reads to tempt your palate—and your credit card....

June's hot summer days and nights bring forth delicious fantasies and naughty games in this month’s dominant offerings.

Bound to Please (Naughty Bits #3) by Joey W. Hill

Thanks to her new Dom’s exquisitely special set of skills, Madison is discovering how delicious it can be to lose control. Logan is committed to awakening Madison’s long buried desires, and after he shows her the depths of ecstasy they can reach with a little bit of roleplay, he’s ready to take her to the next level.

But when Madison’s old fears resurface, Logan grows wary of pushing her too far too fast. He can sense just how deeply she longs for release from past regrets, but what surprises him the most is the intense yearning his innocent new sub is awakening in him. Now Logan must decide to what lengths he’ll go to convince Madison to give herself over completely…

In the third installment of this succulent erotic serial, Hill has upped the ante between our lovers as they continue to explore and push boundaries in their relationship. When a line is drawn, choices will have to be made that will either give them their heart’s desire or drive them apart.

First Look: Joely Sue Burkhart’s The Billionaire Submissive (June 17, 2014)

The Billionaire Submissive by Joely Sue Burkhart

Joely Sue Burkhart
The Billionaire Submissive (Billionaires in Bondage)
Samhain / June 17, 2014 / $5.50 digital

The Billionaire.

Donovan Morgan rules his billion-dollar international company with an iron fist. But in the privacy of his bedroom, he hungers for an iron lady to rule his body.

The Mistress.

Lilly Harrison helps her clients tame their personal demons by taming them. Lots of men—blue collar to white collar—enjoy female domination. But the ultra-rich and powerful CEO is alpha to the core. In public, that is. The challenge will be to teach him that bossy isn’t always better.

The Contract.

Donovan selects his potential Mistress as carefully as a prime investment opportunity, and negotiates a contract as tight and binding as any corporate takeover. He must ensure his privacy at all cost—even if he has to resort to a little blackmail to ensure her full cooperation.

His First Lesson.

When the indomitable Miss Harrison laughs in his face, tears his contract up, and walks out without a backward glance, it seals the deal. Donovan will have her. Even if she makes him crawl to her side.

It seems like there is a rule in erotic romance: billionaire heroes must be dominants. The genre certainly seems to be overrun with them. Fortunately, Joely Sue Burkhart turns this trope around with The Billionaire Submissive, a romance involving alpha-billionaire Donovan Morgan—a man looking for a woman who is strong enough to force him to submit. That woman is professional dominatrix Lilly Harrison, otherwise known as Mistress L.

Exclusive Cover Reveal: Lea Griffith’s More!

More by Lea GriffithToday, we're thrilled to share the cover for the second book in Lea Griffith's erotic All or Nothing series, More. Our hero and heroine both have a lot of baggage to sort through—including their own past together. Here's the official description:

Three years ago, Ruthie Copeland ran away from an erotic connection that shook her to the core. Now she realizes that Tobias Edwards is the only man who can give her what she craves. Determined to reignite the dangerous flame between them, Ruthie seeks him out at The Underground—and discovers a changed man. Though Ruthie, blind since childhood, cannot see the scars on Toby’s face that forced him to seal off his heart, her gentle submission eases the pain of her body’s only Master.

Toby stopped feeling after Ruthie left, stopped expecting to find release in meaningless dominance play. Now that Ruthie has taken their dance to the limits of ecstasy, Toby’s lost in a haze of sensation. Yet the enemies that left him disfigured may reappear at any moment. Ruthie’s love gives him the strength to face those who seek to break him, but Toby fears he must leave her to save her life.

Larger-than-Life Humor and More in Rebekah Weatherspoon’s Fit

Rebekah Weatherspoon's Fit, the first book in the Fit series, follows the story of fiery Violet, who is not your typical romance novel heroine. She’s plus sized, Asian and hilarious. Fit is a short story with an introduction to some light bondage and makes for a quick, fun read.

What stands out most in this book is Violet’s snarky, humorous responses. She is funny and quick-witted, which keeps the story light even while dealing with a heavy topic like self-image. She works in Hollywood, which is not pleasant for someone plus-sized.

H&H Bloggers Recommend: Best Reads of May 2014

Reasonable Doubt, Volume 2 by Whitney G.Each month, we ask our bloggers to share the best thing they’ve read (or things, plural, if our bloggers declare a tie ’cause they just can’t choose). It doesn’t have to be a new book, as evidenced below; just something that made the month sparkle a bit more.

Without further ado, here’s the installment for May 2014 (and if you’ve missed any, be sure to check out past recs via the Related Posts section at the bottom of the post):

Jennifer Proffitt:

To say that I love Whitney Gracia Williams's Reasonable Doubt serial would be a massive understatement. To say I don't love this book would be perjury. Pun always intended. Volume 2 is just recently out this past Monday, but Volume 1, though not telling the full story, left me panting both from the chemistry of the hero and heroine and for more! The book hits on some of my favorite tropes: office romance, hidden identity, friends to lovers...yet also enemies to lovers! Hate-sex never looked so good.

Leigh Davis:

I have read some really great book  this past month. But if an author makes me laugh- then that book jumps to the top of the list. Paw Enforcement by Diane Kelly due out June 3, simply just charmed me. Part of it was Megan Luz, the take- no- prisoner- heroine-  except she must, since she is a police officer. With her tough attitude and baton twirling skills she is a force to be reckoned with — except the Chief and the other men don't realize it yet. Then there is Sergeant Brigit,  Officer Luz's new  K-9 dog- partner, because what man wants to work with her now after she Taser her last partner in the cojones! Brigit who realizes by smell at the very first meeting that she is the most seasoned one on the team, is not going to play dead.

If I May, Sir: Erotic Recommendations for May 2014

Bang by E.K. BlairIn need of some sexy reading material to fill your e-reader? I’m here for you. Each month I will bring you an assortment of erotic pleasure reads to tempt your palate—and your credit card....

May is a month-long kinky exploration of our darker sides as betrayal, deception, pain, and pleasure only serve to sharpen the bite of the erotic games our lovers play.

Bang (Black Lotus, #1) by E.K. Blair

They say when you take revenge against another you lose a part of your innocence.

But I’m not innocent.

I haven’t been for a very long time.

My innocence was stolen from me. Taken was the life I was supposed to have. The soul I was born with. The ruby heart embedded in a life full of hopes and dreams.

Gone.

Vanished.

I never even had a choice.

I mourn that life. Mourn the what-ifs.

Until now.

I’m ready to take back what was always meant to be mine.

But every plan has a fatal flaw. Sometimes it’s the heart.

Bang starts out with a bang (!), and never lets up. Don’t mistake this book for an erotic love story, though, because that is too simple a term for the wide range of emotions involved here. One woman’s need for revenge is littered with lies, sex, and violence. Unbearable pain guides our heroine as she maneuvers the minefield that is her life. Warning!!! This ends on a cliffhanger.

[Then we better hang on...]

Balancing Multiple Relationships in Bound to be a Groom by Megan Mulry

Bound to be a Groom by Megan MulryIt’s not every author who can make nearly every page sizzle with sexual tension when we’re talking about two characters, let alone four, but Megan Mulry more than pulls it off in her historical romance Bound to be a Groom, following on the heels of last year’s Bound to be a Bride. There’s not only numerous BDSM-themed sex scenes, but every one of them makes explicitly clear that these pairings aren’t just about momentary pleasures, but build toward a more lasting, expansive love. Mulry captures both the logistical and emotional challenges of balancing multiple relationships and desires.

The year is 1808, the place, Badajoz, Spain, and Anna and Pia know they have to escape their Spanish convent and find a way to be together. Their plan? Have Anna find work as a courtesan and earn enough to support them.

"Neither she nor Pia had any firsthand experience with men, of course, but they’d convinced themselves that if they could make each other shudder and beg, surely a brutish man would succumb to far less.”

First Look: Eden Bradley’s Dangerously Bound (April 1, 2014)

Dangerously Bound by Eden BradleyEden Bradley
Dangerously Bound (A Dangerous Romance)
Berkley / April 1, 2014 / $15.00 print, $9.99 digital

Allie LeClair has finally returned to the sultry city of New Orleans. After ten years of studying and working as a pastry chef in San Francisco and all over Europe—and feeding her submissive side at BDSM clubs—Allie is home, and she has something to prove to the man who once fueled her desires. She’s not a child anymore.

When security specialist Mick Reid hears that Allie is back in town, he knows he won’t be able to stay away for long. Ever since he discovered his darker side, Mick has tried to protect Allie from the aggressive beast within him—but that power and wildness is exactly what she wants.

Can they take the heat?

Allie has made the first move, but now it’s up to Mick. The game has begun, and playing has never been so rough.

BDSM has been all the rage in romance the last few years. Whether it's  bondage, a particular focus on the dominance and submission or sadism and masochism aspects, the hardcore Dom or more elusive female Domme, a look at the nuances of power exchange, switching, or the psychological aspects of a relationship on the spectrum, a little bit of everything has been represented. But in Dangerously Bound, Eden Bradley introduces the first in a new series set around the Bastille Club in sultry New Orleans and exposes a theme not often found in mainstream romance: pain play.

Mick and Allie have a history. This is not only one of the best things about their story, but it's front and center throughout, a smart move that provides a forensic look at a relationship undergoing every stage. Not understanding the darker urges in his younger years, Mick can't imagine that it's anything Allie would be on board with. So that, coupled with a bad accident that shattered not only his leg but any chance to enter into the noble family business of firefighting, has him convinced he's the black sheep in every way. But in an apt parallel, just as Mick was pushing her away, Allie was discovering too that even before she had the experience to understand it, there was a darker side to her own sexual preferences.

Every Part of Megan Hart’s Every Part of You Serial

Every Part of You: Tempts Me by Megan HartApril brings the fifth and final installment in Megan Hart's Every Part of You serial, an erotic romance celebrating the power of knowing what you want and going for it. The story follows the up-and-down relationship between two people who seemingly couldn't be more opposite. Simone is straightforward and fearless, completely comfortable with her lifestyle and her kinks; Elliott is emotionally unavailable, fastidious (not to say anal retentive,) and scared of his own desires. But their needs in bed happen to coincide perfectly: Simone loves pain, and Elliot, much though he hates himself for it, loves to give it.

In a twist on the typical BDSM story (one of several), Simone is the one in pursuit. She's been indulging her voyeuristic side by watching the man in the opposite wing of her building, who frequently brings women to his office, a man who “dressed like a master of industry and fucked like a jackhammer.” She's particularly intrigued by the small indications of roughness she sees, but has no expectations of ever being one of Elliot's women. The tall blondes are all the same: “Perfect features. Blank expression….everything Simone wasn't and would never be.”  Still, when the chance to get his attention comes, she grabs it and makes the most of it.

[Can't blame her there...]
