He stopped me with another blood-melting kiss. And a lot more.
The second our mouths slammed again, he hauled me up from the mattress, molding my body against his, stopping our clutch long enough to growl out a single directive. “On your knees, Camellia.” As soon as I curled my legs in compliance so our upright torsos were smashed tight, he claimed my lips again, growing our passion with longing, plunging sweeps of his mouth. New position? Definite thumbs up. I now had the chance to explore the sinewy plateaus of his back before scratching down the slopes of his shoulders.
Gaaahhh. He was…breathtaking. A living work of art, captivating me anew every time he moved. I longed to beg for a whole day of just touching him—though now, with his cock fitted against my cleft, the request got shoved to the bottom of the priorities list. Impatience, almost anxiety. Hell, how I craved him inside me, hot and huge and—
Only my jeans remained between us. Not an issue for much longer if I could help it.
I slipped my hands from his shoulders to take care of it, but had only the button twisted free when Evrest grabbed me by both wrists, wrenching them over my head.
My fingers collided with something…metal? I looked up. Sure enough, he wound my grip around a shiny steel rod, suspended on chains from the bed’s sturdy canopy support system.
Okaayyy. Interesting. My pulse tripled, easily acknowledging a fresh flood of sensations. Fear. Excitement. Fear again. What the hell now? The stare I shot to Evrest yielded what I anticipated—his alpha wolf eyes at their strongest, his rugged jaw at its stoniest—conveying his low command before he even uttered it.
“Keep them there.”
My chest pumped as his just had. What a difference a few minutes made. I thought of how he’d surrendered his erection into my hands, trusted me with the most vulnerable part of his anatomy, allowed me to pleasure him…and now, stretched into a similar position, breasts jutting and body stretched, questioned why it was so hard for me to do the same.
Because this reminds you that your body isn’t the only thing bared to him right now? Because with every passing moment, in bigger and bigger chunks, your spirit is investing in this, too? Perhaps even your heart?
I got rid of the thoughts by plunging back into humor. “Ah. So this is the part with the handcuffs.”
One side of his mouth lifted. Not in a smile. “No handcuffs.”
My chest tightened a little more. Another battle between anticipation and trepidation. “Well, where’s the fun in that?”
“No handcuffs. Not needed.” His hands skated down my arms until curving in at my waist. He brought his face closer, angling over me. “You’ll simply obey me, Camellia—because you want to. We both know it.”
“Because I’m a good little girl?” I teased.
“Because you are not.”
He was so close again. His breaths were full of pepper, paprika, and a touch of nectar, a blend of spicy and sweet making me a little dizzy—and a lot aroused. What he demanded of me, with this position alone…the openness, exposure, honesty…exposed so much of me in other ways. My skin was pure electricity. My muscles flexed with readiness. And my sex…hell yes, more than ready. Needing. Clenching.
And wet. So damn wet…
“Your blood sings in the key of naughty, Camellia. And your body…fuck, I can feel it…your sweet, beautiful body hums with the vibration of wicked. And your spirit longs to free it all but you have kept it locked away, in that cage deep inside your soul, simply praying somebody will find it and open the door.” As his hands slipped lower, finding the waistband of my jeans, he fit his head into the curve of my neck. “I am going to open your door, Camellia. And you shall step from that cage, free to show me who you really are. Free to give flight to that creature at the backs of your eyes, restlessly pacing, wanting her dark sky to soar in. I am going to light the stars in that sky for you…then watch in awe as you make them all shiver as you pass.”

I've read a few of Angel Payne's books so I was very excited to read the beginning of her new series.  I know that her books are usually pretty kinky and sometimes a little dark, always with a nice romance.  This book didn't have quite as much kink as some of the others, but that didn't make it any less hot.  Evrest never came out and said he's a Dom, but he's definitely a dominant, alpha male.  Camellia never said she's a sub,  but she's definitely submissive.  By the title alone (Into His Dark) you can tell that something is up. 

Evrest is a born king.  He is used to getting his way and he is in charge.  As I said he never comes outright and says he's a Dom, but he gives orders and he expects them to be obeyed.  He's all strength, power, and pure sex appeal.  Camellia seems to be floundering in life.  She's trying to put her mark in the real world.  She has a respectable job, home, etc.  Then she's offered a chance to work on a film crew with her ex.  She takes it and is blown away by Evrest.  

From their first meeting both are drawn to each other.  The sparks fly.  Camellia knows she should stay away from Evrest, but she can't.  It's almost other-worldly how they are drawn to each other.  

Evrest has a duty to his country, but their love and passion surpasses all of that.  You'll have to read to see how!  I can't wait to read more of the Cimarron series and I give Into His Dark FIVE STARS!

Hi there. I'm Angel: book lover, writing addict, hopeless romantic, pop culture geek and avid shoe lover.

A bit about me...

I've been hooked on books since I was a kid but it got worse in my twenties, when I discovered romances--the hotter, the better. Growing up in Southern California, with lots of surfer manliness surrounded me, was certainly a good boost for reading about delicious alpha guys and the women who adore them. When I learned I had a knack for telling these stories too, I guess you could say I was doomed--though my path toward romance novelist took a few detours via a concert-reviewing gig for my college newspaper (free show tickets...backstage passes...that was a no-brainer), artist interviews for a Beverly Hills dance music mag, personal assistant work for a record producer, dance club disc jockey, and a lot of fun in the hospitality industry.

These days, I still live in California, and have found an amazing alpha guy of my own who was brave enough to marry me. We live on a street that looks like Brigadoon, with our beautiful daughter. I have the best life ever, and never forget to thank the Big Guy Upstairs for it, either.

A Life Less Broken by Margaret McHeyzer - #SALEBLITZ, #GIVEAWAY #BOOKREVIEW

Title: A Life Less Broken
Author: Margaret McHeyzer
 Release Date: May 8, 2014

On a day like any other, Allyn Sommers went off to work, not knowing that her life was about to be irrevocably and horrifically altered.

Three years later, Allyn is still a prisoner in her own home held captive by harrowing fear. Broken and damaged, Allyn seeks help from someone that fate brought her.

Dr. Dominic Shriver is a psychiatrist who’s drawn to difficult cases. He must push past his own personal battles to help Allyn fight her monsters and nightmares.

Is Dr. Shriver the answer to her healing?

Can Allyn overcome the broken?

Contains distressing content. Only suitable for 18+. Standalone.

While I read a lot of dark romance books that's not what this was.  This was darker than almost anything I've read and is definitely not for everyone.  Allyn is completely shattered.  Her life as she knew it, was brutally taken away from her three years ago.  She can't cope in the real world.  She's more broken than any character I've read about before.

Then she sees a TV show and learns about a psychiatrist who helps with trauma patients.  As broken as she is, she finds the courage to make the call for help. Dr. Dominic Shriver turns out to be her savior.  He helps Allyn see past the scars and trauma and to realize that she really can lead a full life.  He's much older than Allyn, and doctor/patient lines are blurred, but it's worth it.  He's amazing and helps Allyn realizes that she, too, is amazing.  

This was a very tough book to read.  About 3/4 of the way through the book it gets even tougher, when Allyn is forced to confront her past.  I won't go into detail, but Dominic is perfect with her.  Helping her cope and helping her recover.  His loyalty is unquestionable.  

I'm not sure this is the kind of book I could read everyday (it's much too emotional), but I truly loved it and think Margaret McHeyzer did a great job.  I give A Life Less Broken 4 1/2 STARS!

**Bound by custom or unique by choice.**

There's something about the written word that's pure magic.

Possibly it's the fact that there are 26 letters in the English alphabet, and they can create something so beautiful or so empowering that they're able to change our lives.

How important is it that we break suit and stretch our minds?

I like to think of myself as 'unique'. My stories aren't for everyone, and sometimes I may push what you believe to be 'normal'.

Normal is subjective.

I prefer to be known as a person who's never been 'bound by custom' but is 'unique by choice'.

Until next time

Wow is all I can say. This series keeps getting steamier and steamier. I fell in love with Liam in the first two books and now I have fallen for Hammer. All 3 main characters still have their trust issues, but they work through them more and more and wind up stronger. This was my favorite so far in this series and I can't wait for more.

Title: Burning For Her Kiss 
Series: Serpent's Kiss, Book 1
Author: Sherri Hayes
Genre: BDSM Erotic Romance
Release Date: February 12, 2015

Beth Davenport has no interest in getting involved with another man for the foreseeable future. To say her last relationship ended in disaster would be a colossal understatement. The only reason she agrees to put in an appearance at Serpent’s Kiss, a private kink club in downtown St. Louis, is because her best friend, Nicole, won’t quit nagging her. When she walks in the door that night, the last thing she expects to do is meet a man who will have her reconsidering her ban on men.

As a captain with the St. Louis Fire Department, Drew Parker is used to being in charge. His crew relies on him to make sure they know what they’re doing and return home to their families after every shift. It isn’t, however, what he wants in a relationship. Drew decides to join Serpent’s Kiss to see if what appeals to him in fantasy is something he wants to explore in the real world. He’s also hoping that he’ll be lucky enough to meet a woman with whom he can explore his desires. The night Beth walks into the club, he is intrigued. Drew has to get to know her better.

After what happened to her, Beth is reluctant to get involved with Drew. It doesn’t matter that he is sweet and charming. She’s been burned before and Beth doesn’t think she can survive having her heart crushed again. Drew, however, won’t take no for an answer. He wants a relationship and is determined to chip away at her defenses until she relents. Will she give him a chance, or did her ex leave her with scars too deep to heal?

She plunged her tongue inside his mouth and took what she wanted. It was the hottest thing Drew could ever remember experiencing in his life.
The kiss didn’t last more than a minute or two, but it was long enough for him to know he wanted more.
Beth rested her forehead against his. She was breathing just as hard as he was. Her chest was heaving up and down, brushing against his chest. Not to mention that she was still straddling his lap.
“Please tell me you want to do that again.”
She laughed. It was so nice to see her happy and carefree.
“Is that a yes?”
“Don’t get cocky on me now.” She ran a single finger down the side of his face and over his lower lip.
He closed his eyes, trying not to push.
“Open your eyes,” she whispered.
When he met her gaze, he noticed the amusement was gone. He was instantly on alert. “What’s wrong?”
Beth shook her head. “Nothing’s wrong. I’m just . . . considering my options.”
“Options about what?”
“Oh.” He wasn’t sure he liked the fact that thinking over her options had banished the fun they’d be having.
Before he could formulate another question, she explained. “Things between us are moving faster than I thought they would.”
“Is that bad?” He needed to know. In his opinion, things between them weren’t moving fast enough.
She sighed. But Drew also noted that she hadn’t removed herself from his lap. That was good, wasn’t it?
“I don’t know. Maybe. Maybe not.”

If you read my blog or look on my FB page (or through any of my reviews) you'll see that I read quite a bit of BDSM romance.  I got hooked long before the whole 50 Shades thing hit.  But almost all of what I read is with a male Dominant.  I've read menage with female and male Dominants dominating over one sub, but there is almost always a male Dominant.  This book was a huge change for me.  Beth is the Domme and Drew is the sub.  

At first I wasn't sure what I'd think of this book.  I, myself, am far more submissive than Dominant.  My husband and I do not practice D/s, but I am not a take charge person in the bedroom and I am frequently submissive.  But I went into this book with an open mind and was extremely happy that I dd.

While Drew is definitely a sub he's not completely submissive. The dynamics of the couple were much more equal.  Beth dominated Drew, but mostly only in the bedroom and when he wanted something he went for it.  He was strong and sexy.  And he's a man in uniform - a firefighter.  Beth was a Domme, but she wasn't your typical Dominatrix.  She wasn't a sadist walking around in leather with a whip. 

Both Beth and Drew were much more real than many characters I read about in books and they seemed genuine.  Then there was the sex.  Oh my...  Can we say that the scenes were hot?  There were many hot D/s scenes, but also many other almost vanilla D/s scenes.  All were steamy!

If you're like me and usually read M/f I definitely suggest you give this one a try for a change.  And if you read a lot of F/m then I already know you'll love this one.  Bring on the rest of this series!  

I give Burning for her Kiss 4 1/2 stars!

Sherri spent most of her childhood detesting English class. It was one of her least favorite subjects because she never seemed to fit into the standard mold. She wasn't good at spelling, or following grammar rules, and outlines made her head spin. For that reason, Sherri never imagined becoming an author.
At the age of thirty, all of that changed. After getting frustrated with the direction a television show was taking two of its characters, Sherri decided to try her hand at writing an alternate ending, and give the characters their happily ever after. By the time the story finished, it was one of the top ten read stories on the site, and her readers were encouraging her to write more.

Nearly eight years later, Sherri is the author of eight full-length novels, and two short stories. Writing has become a creative outlet that allows her to explore a wide range of emotions, while having fun taking her characters through all the twists and turns she can create.
