July 28th:


Gage Hollister is a Southern Dom looking for a full time sub/slave. When his family's business brings him to New York City for an indefinite stay, he decides that now is the time to find her. Night after night he prowls the local BDSM club in search of a woman whose need to be dominated equals his thirst for true submission. As the search drags on he begins to wonder if his perfect match even exists. When he is asked to play chaperone for a family friend embarking on her first trip as an adult; he welcomes the chance for distraction from his thus far fruitless endeavor.

Zoe Marshall is the youngest sister to Gage's best friend and she has been in love with Gage for as long as she can remember. She has saved herself for him and him alone. Now, after careful planning and a bit of luck she finally has her opportunity to show Gage that she's all grown up and ready to be his. Although he believes himself too old and jaded for an innocent like her, Zoe will not relent until she belongs to him in every way.

Soon Gage's resistance crumbles and Zoe's dreams become reality but their budding love is tested when her brother discovers them. As those bonds of friendship strain under betrayal and broken trust, Zoe is confronted with having to choose between the man she loves and the brother she worships. Will having the love of her man cost her the love of her family? If so, is her heart strong enough to survive that loss? Is their love?

This book contains graphic language, BDSM elements, M/F/M ménage, a Southern Dom who's a gentleman; and the woman who brings out the scoundrel in him.


All Zoe ever wanted is one extremely stubborn alpha man all wrapped up in a kinky little package. No matter that he sees her as just a kid. She will do everything in her power to change that really quick!

Zoe, otherwise known as Oops, has dreamed of going to New York by herself. She asks her family for permission and after a bit of arm twisting, she is on her way to begin her plan. The name is endearing, and the new adult freshness makes itself known in this book. Oops has it in her head to visit Gage in New York and find a way to convince him to introduce her into the world of kinky sex. There is also the matter of her virginity. She has plans to marry the delectable Dom, but first she must get him to see past the nickname and focus on her attributes. 


A crowd was moving around the baggage terminal, and Gage looked up to scan for Zoe when a woman caught his eye. She was curvy in a lush, mouthwatering way that made his palms itch. She had jet-black hair that bounced around her shoulders with every step she took. As he watched, one long lock looped over an arm and curled around her right breast as though outlining it, and Gage started forward without meaning to. All thoughts of his beloved kid sister vanished as he kept his sights on that curl and the gently bouncing breast it cradled. He was going to have those breasts by nightfall, he promised himself, and everything else that went with them. Just as he was drawing close and getting ready to make an introduction, the gentle bounce became a faster one as she started running. He stopped in his tracks, unwilling to disrupt her when she was obviously rushing to greet someone. He hoped like hell it wasn't a man, because that would seriously ruin his whole "get her naked and devour every inch of her" plan.
She was going to run right by him, he thought as she drew closer and closer, and just when he started to sidestep, thinking he must be in front of whoever she was meeting, she squealed, "Gage!" and launched herself at him.

I'm going to Hell.

Somehow I don't think his willpower will be a problem for long! *snicker* 

This book is full of charm and some very hot sex scenes that delve into several aspects of BDSM. Fun for an afternoon around the house, I laid back and enjoyed this read and can't wait to catch up on the first two in the series. Oops was very kid like in the beginning and it was kind of hard to identify with at first. When she breaks out of her parents' clutches and gets to the fun part of the story, the pages began to fly. The descriptions of the BDSM scenes and interaction between the characters was fun and it was hard to pull myself away to make dinner.

The dynamics between Gage and Zoe are full of sparks and the tension is manic. The tug and pull of want grows so strong it is delicious. Even when Gage insists she finish school. *insert another new adult moment*. It was sweet and fresh in a way you don't always see in BDSM novels. I enjoyed the book. 

Great read!


As a treat, here is another treat to tempt you with:


When he turned back around, Zoe was on her knees in front of him with her head bowed, her legs spread and her hands behind her back. His heart stopped. To keep himself from reaching for her, he curled his hands into fists at his sides and focused on breathing.
"Is this the right way?" Her voice was soft, tremulous and it stroked tendrils of fire over his cock. "Am I doing it right?"
"Where did you learn about that, Oops?" He tried to keep his own voice level as his mind scrambled for reasons he should be running like hell right now. Problem was, he couldn't think of a damn one.
"I was on the net all night, reading and learning so I can be what you want."
His sigh was part groan, part whimper, and full of defeat. "Aw, baby. You shouldn't have done that. That stuff is not for innocents. It's for people with darker things inside them than you got, sweetheart. You are all sunshine inside, not darkness."
"I'm lying in my bed at the summer house and you sneak in my window in the middle of the night. I'm asleep so I don't hear you. Without waking me, you slide the covers off and pull my panties down. Then you slip my nightgown up and I don't wake up until you are kissing me between my legs."
Gage stood in frozen shock, the image wringing unwelcome lust through his body.
"That was my first fantasy I ever had about you." Her eyes lifted until their gazes met. "I was fourteen. And it's also the tamest."
"Dammit, Oops-" he began, not having a clue what he was going to say when she interrupted again.
"I have one where I'm running through the woods and I can hear you chasing after me. I don't know why I'm running because I want you to catch me so bad, but I can't help it. The running is making me scared a little and I can feel that you are going to make me pay for running and I kinda like that too." He groaned and she stopped for a second before continuing. "When you catch me, you tackle me to the ground and you're pulling off all my clothes and I'm still fighting you, but again I don't know why because I can't wait till you get me naked. And then when I am naked, I flip onto my hands and knees and try to crawl away, but you grab me from behind and you...you-God, you just shove into me and-"
"Christ, Zoe, stop." They were both breathing heavily, and Gage felt himself falling down an endless abyss. And he was terribly afraid there would be no going back.
"My worst one had me so confused before today. I felt so guilty for having it. But it's always there and now I know why. Do you want to hear it?"
Gage didn't answer her with words, but she apparently took his steady look as assent and told him.
"It's back in the Old West days. I'm a saloon girl and you're a gun-slinging gambler. You're at a table playing poker and there are four other men there with you. You have my hands strapped to the ceiling somehow and I'm standing in the middle of the table. All of you play your poker and drink your drinks and act like you can't see me. You all can though, because every once in a while one of you will run your hand up my leg or reach up to touch me between them. Every time one of you wins a hand, the winner gets to take off a piece of my clothes. Once I'm completely naked, the stakes get higher and you get to do things to me. Like kiss my breasts or put your fingers inside me. All of a sudden you shove all your winnings into the middle of the table and bet everything you have on me. And you win. Then you drag me off the table and take me right there. Right in front of them while they all watch." She spread her legs a little wider and lowered her eyes again. "Does that sound like sunshine to you? To me it sounds like I'm perfect for you, and everything I learned about today only makes me more sure about us, not less."
"Stand up." His voice was deep and the tone left no room for disobedience. She stood with a whimper.


A note for my readers:
I write books that have very dominant men in them.  The men in my books are fierce and controlling in the bedroom and overbearing and protective out of it.  And the women never have anything to fear because the men would throw themselves in front of a bus before they'd let anything hurt their ladies..including themselves.  I write fiction.  In real life we need to be way more careful and choosey than my heroines are.  Never give up your power or your body to anyone unless you have all the groundwork of safe words and real solid trust in place.  Safe words are non-negotiable- No safe word?  No way.

Now, as for me. I live in a tiny little place called Lake Stevens with my daughter, and our many pets.  I'm an animal lover.  Yup it's true.  I am one of those people who lets the dog on the couch and has cat hair on her sweaters. 

I've dreamed of writing since I was twelve and after the reception my first novel received I am kicking myself for not following that dream sooner.  Since my first novel A Table for Three came out I have been a changed person.  My childhood dream has come true and every day away from my computer feels like a waste.  With the release of Damaged Goods I took a leap of faith and left the day job behind.  Every day is a crazy adventure of second guessing my decision and wallowing in the joyful realization that "I don't have to go to work today!"  A realization that I have NEVER had for longer than a week in my entire adult life.

Fate has smiled on me and I am now a full time author!  My dreams are becoming a reality and I have you to thank.  Thank you all for reading and reviewing (those reviews really make a difference).  I hope that this is the start of a long and fabulous life together...you and me...I'll write and you read and together we'll make the world a steamy wonderful place!
