Blog tour & 5* review - From Sanctum With Love by Lexi Blake

From Sanctum with Love
Masters and Mercenaries, Book 10
By Lexi Blake
Coming February 23, 2015

Psychologist Kai Ferguson has had his eye on Kori Williamson for a long time. His assistant is everything he’s ever wanted in a partner—smart, caring, witty, and a bit of a masochist. More than a little, actually, but that’s the problem. Kori won’t admit her own desires. She’s afraid of him and what he has to offer. Luckily for her, helping patients face their fears is one of his specialties.
Kori knows she wants Kai. Her boss is the most amazing man she’s ever met. She’s also smart enough to stay away from him. Having been down this road before, she knows it only leads to heartache. She’s just found a place where she can belong. Another failed relationship is the last thing she needs. It’s better to guard her heart and let Kai think she’s frightened of his dark, dominant nature
When Kai is recruited for an operation with McKay-Taggart, everything is turned upside downKai’s brother,international superstar Jared Johnsis in town and Kai mustjuggle his family issues along with a desperate hunt for a serial killer. The investigation throws Kori and Kaitogetherand they quickly discover the chemistry between them is undeniable. But even if their newfound love can survive his secrets and her lies, it may not be enough to save them both from a killer’s twisted obsession

“Please gag me, Kai. Please.” 
“With pleasure, baby.” 
She could hear him moving around behind her, and when he came back he had a fresh pair of her undies in his hands. 
“Unlike a lot of Doms, I personally enjoy pretty panties. They make such good gags when we need to keep our games private. Open. Since you won’t be able to talk through this spanking, all you have to do to get me to stop is hold up your left hand.”
He was giving her a way to safe word without speaking. She had to admit that the idea that her friends were right down the hallway and Kai was about to do dirty things to her aroused her unbearably. “I can do that.”
“Stand up and ask me to gag you again. Does my sub need a gag in her mouth so she won’t cry out?”
Her nipples were rigid against her tank top. “Yes, Sir. I need it.”
“Open your mouth.” His right hand caught her, forcing her head up. “And I damn straight meant what I said about stopping me if it’s too much. I know you like it, but I won’t damage you for anything. Take it.”
He was rough as he shoved the panties into her mouth. She would never be able to look at those the same way again. He pressed them, filling her mouth and making her jaw ache. It was the right side of pain, exactly enough to start up the chemical reaction in her brain. Some people got runner’s high. She found such peace in this place. 
And it was better this time because she could trust Kai. 
Because Kai was the one. 
“Back down,” Kai ordered. 
She turned again, placing her hands down on the bed. She could scream as much as she liked now. For the first time in forever, she could actually let loose. 
“Have I ever told you how beautiful you are? I like having you gagged because you can’t talk back and argue with me. Did you think I didn’t notice that every single time I give you a compliment, you negate it somehow? When I told you that dress was lovely on you last Monday, you told me you had borrowed it from Sarah and I should see how she filled it out.” His hand smacked on her ass, fire skimming her skin. “I don’t care how Sarah fills it out. I care about you. I watch you. I fantasize about you.”
They were not words she’d ever expected to hear from him. Not once. She’d dreamed about him, but she’d convinced herself that nothing could ever happen between them. Tears pricked her eyes, sweet and pure emotion running through her. 
He rained down on her skin, the soreness from the previous night making every strike more visceral. She groaned around the gag. 
“So that’s a new rule. When I tell you how pretty you are, you’ll thank me. Maybe if you hear it from me enough, you’ll start to believe it, though I think you should know that while you’re gorgeous, it’s not the thing that attracts me to you the most.” Another long volley where all she could hear was the sound of his hand hitting her flesh and then the flash of heat that sank into her bones. 
Fuck but she felt alive. 
“No, what attracted me to you was the fact that you are the single kindest person I’ve ever met.” He smacked her on the underside of her ass, making her jump slightly, the sensation so close to her rapidly moistening pussy. “You try to hide it, but I see you. I see how you treat people, how you protect them and take care of them. I also see how you never ask for anything yourself.”
He made her sound like a martyr, but it wasn’t like she could defend herself. There was nothing to do but take Kai’s discipline and listen to his words. Over and over her skin lit up and she took in the pain before shaking it off and letting the sensation change deep inside her body. Metamorphosis. It was how she always felt when playing. Like she began as one person and changed somewhere in the middle into someone else—someone stronger, more at peace. 
“I’m going to take care of that because I’m going to take care of you and you’re going to let me. You’re going to trust me to take care of you emotionally the way I’m taking care of you physically. I know that’s hard, but I promise I won’t let you down. After last night, after the connection we had, I can’t let us go back to what we were.”
She could see that now. How had she thought for a second that she could breeze back into the office and pretend nothing had happened between them? What happened the night before was more meaningful than simple play. They’d needed each other, filled something that had been missing deep inside. 
The pain focused her, helped her to push aside those voices that always seemed so close to the surface. All her nasty doubts and self-loathing melted away when tested against Master Kai’s discipline. She knew so many people who would judge her a freak for needing this, but she’d learned long ago that smart people accepted who they were, what they needed. 
She needed Kai and in more ways than one. 
Her backside was on fire as he continued, his rough voice keeping a count. Ten and then fifteen. Twenty and more. Somehow he knew exactly what to give her to make her ache for more. 
“Thirty.”  His hand moved over her skin, holding the heat in as he stroked her flesh. “I don’t want to be finished with this, Kori.”
Neither did she. There was no reason to hold him off. They’d had years of friendship to build a trust like nothing she’d known. She wiggled her ass against his hand because she couldn’t talk and hadn’t been told she could move yet. Rubbing against him was the only way she had to communicate that she wanted him. 
He hauled her up, turning her to face him. “You know what I want. I believe I told you the first rule I wanted to change.”
Kisses. He’d claimed he wanted kisses. He gently pulled the panties out of her mouth, tossing them to the side. He lowered his mouth to hers, lips pressing down. He didn’t allow her to control this kiss. His hands sank into her hair and tugged her head back, giving him full access to her mouth. His tongue plunged deep, rubbing along her own in a silky glide. He kissed her over and over again, sinking deeper. She didn’t give a crap that her pants were still around her ankles. All that mattered was the feel of his lips on hers, the way his hands gripped and dominated her. There was power in how he held her, how he moved her, and it made her submissive and willing. 
“Please, Kai,” she whispered. She’d spent years without and it had been all right. She’d survived and not even thought about sex. Now she couldn’t stand the thought of him not being inside her. Not one second more. She needed him. 
“Tell me you want me.”
“I want you.”


Lexi Blake's fabulous Masters and Mercenaries series continues with another outstanding story with characters you will fall in love with. This series goes from strength to strength, with each book becoming a must read for fans of BDSM romance stories. As with the other books there is a strong suspense plot line, with more crimes and evil doings for our heroes to solve. The McKay-Taggart family is still reeling from events at the end of Ten's story, and the plot thickens in this book - I really can't wait to see what happens next! I'm hoping we don't have to wait long for our next M & M instalment - I am totally addicted to this series and I'm already experiencing withdrawal symptoms!

I've been waiting for our favourite sadist's story for a while now, and Ms Blake didn't let me down. Kai is one one of my favourite characters, probably second only to Big Tag - and regular readers will know how much I love him! - so I was happy to see him matched up with a machochist who was worthy of his love. Kori is his assistant and has feelings for Kai, but she's been hurt before and is determined not to go down the same path again, so she keeps their relationship purely platonic. But when they get dragged into a hunt for a murderer, things start to heat up between them.

The BDSM scenes are ultra passionate, hotter than hell and very imaginative - I loved the sadisticks gift idea! There is very strong chemistry between Kai and Kori, but there is also real love and a lot of emotion. This is a fantastic book, it definitely receives five stars! Download it now!

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for a honest review.

Blog tour - Jaz's Warriors by Ann Mayburn

Jaz's Warriors BT Banner

While growing up in Harlem, Jaz Brooks never imagined that there would be a day where she’d have two smoking hot alien husbands, Mavet and Xentix. Or that she would be living on a Kadothian spaceship stationed on one of Saturn’s moons as an Earth Ambassador. And she certainly never imagined that her bondmates would be encouraging her to take a third husband, but that’s exactly what’s happening.
Tandar Glycin has been fighting the Hive in the distant Bel’Tan galaxy for so long now he’d given up hope of ever finding his Matriarch. When word reaches him that his blood brother, Mavet, has bonded an Earth female Tandar is both elated and worried. Vicious rumors abound in the Bel’Tan galaxy about how horrible Earth women are and he worries that Mavet has taken a monster as his wife. When he first meets Jaz he quickly realizes that not all of the stories are true, and that the Lord of Life has blessed him with a kind, beautiful, and feisty alyah who is going to make him work to win her heart.
Warning - This story is set in the Bel'Tan galaxy where polyamorous relationships are the norm and love in all of its forms is accepted including M/M, M/M/F, M/M/M/F sexual situations.

From a young Ann has had a love affair with books would read everything she could get her hands on. As Ann grew older, and her hormones kicked in, she discovered bodice ripping Fabio-esque romance novels. They were great at first, but she soon grew tired of the endless stories with a big wonderful emotional buildup to really short and crappy sex. Never a big fan of purple prose, throbbing spears of fleshy pleasure and wet honey pots make her giggle, she sought out books that gave the sex scenes in the story just as much detail and plot as everything else-without using cringe worthy euphemisms. This led her to the wonderful world of Erotic Romance, and she's never looked back.
Now Ann spends her days trying to tune out cartoons playing in the background to get into her 'sexy space' and has accepted that her Muse has a severe case of ADD.

Graham's had it with Alphas. His experiences with them have been disastrous at best. Even with ones that didn't tumble him into the nearest bed. So when the chance to move in with another Omega comes up, Graham grabs it. But Graham's never seen an Omega so big. Plus, he seems to be able to push buttons only an Alpha has. However, trust is something that comes easily to Graham. Hyden says nothing about being an Alpha – so he must not be. Right?

Hyden has just met his fated mate - in the middle of a territorial war. Not the best timing. But now that Graham's here, Hyden can hardly let the little pup escape, which is what he will do if he finds out Hyden is not only an Alpha but the Alpha. With the Mating Moon scant days away how will Hyden convince the smaller Graham that not all Alphas are selfish bastards? And he's going to have to, because blood fever will not be ignored and Hyden can already feel it taking over his senses. Once it does, there will be no turning back. Hyden might have to resort to handcuffing the pup in order to make sure he doesn't bolt off into the night. Hmmm. Not a bad thought. He might have to do that anyway…


Stupid, clueless little pupHyden pushed away from the door he had just closed, leaving Graham behind, and forced himself to walk into the living room. If he didn’t, he was sure he would slam that door back open, rip those boxers off the man, and take him right there on the cold hardwood floor.

Why now? Why did his fated mate have to show up nowFuck, the smell of the man. He had never before experienced anything like it. And for the pup to be ignorant of Hyden's Alpha status was absolutely crazy. But Hyden knew, due to the strong scent of terror rolling off the smaller man when he had even spoken the word Alpha, his mate would bolt if he learned that Hyden was indeed not only an Alpha but theAlpha. 

The Solfang Pack was the dominant pack in the city, and it was odd Graham hadn’t heard of it. And the last thing Hyden was capable of doing was outright lying to his fated mate. He could, and was going to have to, hide some of the truth. But lying was not something he was going to want to do. Even now, with the subterfuge he was planning, he was skating on ground that would have him in high water to his eyebrows with one false step.

The timing of this sucked. He was just now moving into supreme power, and to be sidetracked by a naïve little pup was definitely going to be a problem. But he sure as hell wasn’t going to be able to let Graham slip away from him either. Hyden wasn’t the one who placed the ad in the paper, but if Graham needed to rent a room, he would rent it from him. And if Graham needed to believe Hyden was an Omega, then that’s what Hyden was going to have to be for a while. At least until he could convince the pup they were mates.

Except it was a little over two weeks to the Mating Moon.

Was that going to be enough time for him to get Graham to understand what was happening? Because he would not be able to hold back when that moon hit. He was barely able to keep his wolf at bay the way it was. Snapping and growling at him already, his animal was clawing to get out and at the pup.

He heard a noise behind him, and he turned.

There he was. Beautiful and innocent. Maybe not virginal. That was fine. But he was in no way going to allow Graham to be physical with anyone else from now on. “Feeling better?” The sweatpants and top he had given the man were very obviously too big. They belonged to his sister, who was no small thing herself.

“Yes. Thank you.”

He had pushed up the sleeves and rolled up the pant legs. He looked absolutely adorable.

And fuckable.

Hyden wanted to touch the hot skin beneath that fabric. 

But he would have to wait. Shit. The beautiful man was talking to him, and he'd missed it.

“I’m sorry, Graham. What did you say?”

“I asked… what… what is the price? I think the paper was wrong. I think it was a typo or something because…”

“Come. Let’s sit down.” It would be easier for him to hide his reaction to this man if they sat. Hydenwalked over to one of the white couches. He truly desired for Graham to sit at his feet, to keep him near, and almost commanded him to do so but was able to keep his mouth shut. The gorgeous man sat opposite him on the other couch. Damn itSo far away.

Oh, he was so timid. He sat perched at the end, looking ready to run at the slightest thing. Did he suspect? He should. How Hyden was going to keep from Graham what he was, he wasn’t sure, but at the very least, he was going to have to hide his extreme attraction. And his overpowering need to command the man to bend over for him. Right now.

He swallowed hard. Keep on task, or you will lose him. “What did the ad say?”

“It said two hundred dollars a month. But I know that can’t be right.”

“Two hundred a month is fine.”

“What? But…”

“Two hundred a month is the price. Do you want it?”

“Oh yes! Yes, please.”

Damn. The word please coming from those lips… Lips Hyden wanted wrapped around his cock. “Good. When can we move you in?”

“Today? Is today too soon?”

Today. Relief swept through Hyden. He would soon have the pup under his roof and his protection. No mistakes. He could make no mistakes. “No. Not at all. Where is your stuff?”

“In Tenway Park. In the Mercury building. I live on the tenth floor. It’s… not like this. I don’t know if you know anything about Tenway Park. I – it’s kind of slummy.”

Tenway Park. Damn. It totally figured he would be coming from the inner city. The wolves in that district rejected any kind of pack authority, had long ago abolished packs altogether. He understood the payoffs. Alphas running amok with no self-discipline, fucking everything in their path, not to mention the fact crime was a way of life. The only rule: don’t get caught. And even then, if you had money and power, getting caught simply meant you gained more influence and notoriety. Having to submit to a pack would stop all such behavior. Hyden’s Betas had been slowly infiltrating the area and bringing back much needed information. At some point, Hyden would take over the zone, and he needed to know who were going to be the ones he would have to defeat in order to do it. Just the knowledge that this was where his Graham had been living made him shiver.

I really enjoyed this m/m shifter romance. It's fairly short, but it still made an impression on me. I really liked both characters - Graham, the submissive omega wolf, was a real sweetheart and the Alpha wolf, Hyden, was so hot. I enjoyed the dynamic between Graham and Hyden, they had great chemistry together.  The BDSM scenes were brilliant, I found them to be very sexy and well written.

Graham was very, very naive but I found this quite endearing. He is the perfect match for Hyden who was one hundred percent alpha male. The storyline was detailed enough to keep my attention from start to finish, I couldn't put this book down. I would have liked it to be slightly longer though, as the ending felt a bit unfinished. An epilogue would have helped, as I really wanted to know what happened next. Overall I enjoyed this sweet but spicy story so it receives four out of five stars.

I downloaded this book for free on Smashwords.

Author Bio

Hurri Cosmo lives in Minnesota where she holds tight to the idea that there, where it’s cold a good part of the year, she won’t age as fast. Yep, she avoids the truth as much as she avoids mirrors. But one of the reasons she loves writing is reality doesn’t always offer up a “happily ever after” and being able to take control of that is a powerful lure. Being a happy ending junkie, writing just makes them easier to find. Oh, she doesn’t mind “real life” and she does try to at least keep it in mind when she writes her stories, but she truly loves creating a wonderful couple, knowing they will fall in love and have their HEA. Every - single - time. And, of course, that is exactly the reason she loves reading this genre, too. Give her a glass of red wine, some dark chocolate, and her computer, whether she is reading or writing, and she will entertain herself for hours. The fact she actually gets paid to do it is Snickers bars on the frosting on the cake.

Leslie Johnson
Leslie is a California native but recently moved to Arizona after a stint in Arkansas. She enjoys travel and being with friends.
She is an avid reader of many genres, but prefers romances with travel or thriller themes. She loves writing about strong women and strong men because the world needs both!
Elle Dawson
Sharing ones thoughts on paper is an intimate experience, and should not be taken lightly. Some days I fear this process, as my mind can be a scary place to dwell. Other days I realize I’m not alone in this journey, and although the very action of expelling ones deepest thoughts onto paper is intensely personal, it is deeply healing. Funny how that works.
I will continue to write as Elle Dawson, and be a mom, sister, daughter and friend in my real life. I'll enjoy the beauty of Tennessee and read books that take me away or speed up my heart. When I'm not writing them.
