Isha has spent the last year watching his BFF get his happily-ever-after. He’s proud of Dom, but…it hurts to see him so free while Isha’s love life is still on lockdown. Only Isha’s ex-wife knows the secret that he’s kept caged for so long—that he’s queer too, and he’s lonely.


Jude’s too chained to his work to notice what he’s missing by being terminally single, but a new face in the village soon catches his attention. City boy Isha is gorgeous, and when he starts to haunt Jude’s reptile shop as well as the hook-up app on his phone, he’s a welcome distraction from Jude’s business problems.


For a control freak like Isha, letting Jude under his skin is an existential meltdown, but Jude’s not in the market to be anyone’s queer crisis, not when he’s facing troubles of his own. Unlocking their lives could push both men apart forever, but it might be a risk worth taking if sharing is the key to their happy future.

Taken by the Night ~ Tour & Giveaway

Taken By the Night
by Breanna Hayse
Genre: Paranormal Romance
What would you do if you were forced to come face-to-face with the secret
part of your soul you’ve kept hidden your entire life? Would you
expose that secret if it meant the possibility of living your greatest fantasy?
Hospice nurse Courtney Wells expected to encounter a commanding personality
when she agreed to provide care for an old friend of the Romanian
aristocrat, Baron Marcas Kalnovky. Confident, self-controlled, and
independent- very few things could rattle her, that is until she
meets the handsome and mysterious man with silver-gray eyes and old
world charm. The moment she hears his deep rolling accent, her body
quivers with a desire she can’t deny no matter how hard she tries.
From the beginning, Marcas demands something the young American woman’s
not willing to give- submission. His desire for her takes him on a journey that
forces him to face himself in a way neither he, nor Courtney, anticipate.
What the pretty little nurse doesn’t know is that the baron’s
voracious appetite for ancient erotic art resulted in the unleashing
of a dark curse. Not only does he nearly lose his sight, but his soul
is literally split in two.
By day, he’s the same man he always was- controlled, calm, and
commanding; but at sunset, he tears in half and his two opposite
sides war against one another. The only thing they have in common is
the beautiful, feisty woman who’s turned their life around. Both
sides not only want her, but they also need her… all of her, in
every way she can be taken… Together at night- which means they
have to find a way to get along.
When Marcas finally confesses the truth, Courtney’s both terrified and
intrigued. When she’s bound naked and helpless at the mercy of all
of his desires, she’s shocked to find that she’s soon begging for
both of him in every manner imaginable.
When she discovers the pain Marcas endures to be with her; she’s
determined to find a way to help him. Little does she know that
there’s more to curse than his being forced to face himself every
night—it wants a sacrifice. A terrifying sacrifice that would cost
Courtney’s life she’s compelled to come to terms with her own
hidden darkness.
Will her love be enough to break the curse and heal his wounded soul? What
about the cost? Would he ever forgive her if she succeeds in setting
him free?
BDSM/AP lifestyler Breanna Hayse strives to give her readers truth and
reality of the BDSM/Age-Play/Total Power and Erotic Exchange lifestyle.
Who am I?
I’m a native Californian gone ‘wild’, and had the opportunity to travel
the globe and discover the world through the eyes of both a Marine
Intelligence specialist and a BDSM lifestyler. I left the service to
go into hospice nursing and grief counseling, eventually working as a
marriage and family therapist for those involved in alternative
lifestyle development. This experience has allowed me to gain unique
inspiration for my books and offer realistic plots and relatable characters.
In 2004, my husband, John, and I joined forces to work with both
submissives and dominants- teaching, training, listening and loving.
Our goal was to take the mystery and fear out of the lifestyle and
mentor people in safe, consensual and healthy relationships.
My first book, The Game Plan, was published in 2012 and opened the door
to the now-booming world of Age-Play literature. Since that time,
I’ve devoted my ‘spare’ time to writing, researching, community
involvement, and private and group pro bono counseling in deviant
behavior, alternative lifestyle, and addiction recovery.
I was formally ‘dungeon trained’ as a Domme before discovering my
submissive side when I joined the service. My scenarios are pulled
primarily from either personal experience or observation, including
spending time in BDSM clubs as the safety/medical officer. My
multi-faceted background allows me to glean from many avenues and
give a unique and intelligent literary experience through elements of
fantasy and fiction. I also discuss the questions and psychology of
the lifestyle in a manner that is fun and informative, and based on
‘the real deal.’
I live with my husband, musician, and fellow-author, John Hayse, and
two border collies in southern California. We practice a 24/7 D&S
relationship with speckles of AP (and many trips to Build-A-Bear),
and happily spend every moment together that we can. My hobbies
include my puppies, hiding my vanilla salt-water taffy where John
can’t find it, exotic art, collecting inspirational trinkets, and
developing my own paddle line. You can also see me as a featured
author/instructor in professional conference settings and as a

Dark Assassins

Kai
Dark Assassins Book One
by Valerie Ullmer
Genre: Paranormal Romance
There are two words that described Kai.
Remote and Deadly.
And until six months ago, he was fine with that description. But when the
vampire assassin spots a curvaceous woman, a human no less, who would
come to fill his thoughts, he would gladly shake his persona for a
moment in time with her. Instead, he kept his distance, watching out
for her and learning more about her every time their paths crossed.
But he had yet to speak to her. When a turn of events thrusts her
into his solitary life, he must decide whether to complete his
assignment, or protect her.
Olivia Sabin had dedicated her life to her work; finding a cure for cancer.
She had hidden behind the mask of a scientist who cares little about
anything beyond her laboratory, and for a long while she believed it
herself. But when a mysterious man came to frequent the diner she
visited nightly, her awareness of him devastated her concentration,
and she came to look forward to the glimpses of him, however brief.
When she stumbles upon a horrific experiment at work, she knows he’s the
only one she can turn to. She’s willing to sacrifice everything in
order to protect him and others of his kind from the same fate. But
first, she needs to find a way to get him to hear her explanation.
***Paranormal Romance featuring HOT Vampires and Shifters. Contains explicit sex
scenes and each book in the series ends with a HEA.***
Reaper
Dark Assassins Book Two
A wolf-shifter and his powerful human.
Reaper had expected it to be an easy assignment. Break into a biotech
facility with minimum security and rescue a group of immortals who
were subject to deadly experiments and eliminate those who might try
to fight back. But the moment he walked into the glass prison and
spotted a human woman being held with the immortals, his mission changed.
She became his mission.
Before Reaper had a chance to explain that he was there to help her, she
blinded him and the rest of his team and slipped away. Although she
had escaped him, a protectiveness that he’d never felt washed over
him, and he became determined to find her.
Ara has always depended on herself, but there was something about the
shifter that made her want to trust him. She recognized him as
someone who was capable of protecting her as well as understanding
her secrets without turning her away, but before she could allow
herself to trust him, she ran.
But with no resources and running out of ideas about how to protect
herself, will she be able to lower her defenses and allow the shifter
to help her?
***Paranormal Romance featuring HOT Shifters and Vampires. Contains explicit sex

Seth
A Dark Assassins World Novella
Immortals have been a part of Seth’s world since he barged into Kai’s life at
the age of twelve. And having a group of shifter and vampire
assassins he considered family, he thought that he’d seen it all and
that nothing would surprise him. But the one night he met Aubrey
changed his world, and he’d never been so happy to be wrong.
Aubrey was used to seclusion, even before she had been turned into a
vampire. She’d never dreamed of a life outside her tiny little world,
but that was until she met Seth. Before she could understand her
reactions, she ran from him. But she couldn’t stay away. The more she
gets to know him, the stronger the connection between them solidifies.
When Seth tells Aubrey that he is her mate, will she take a chance and
keep him forever?
***Paranormal Romance featuring HOT Shifters and Vampires. Contains explicit sex

Xander
Dark Assassins Book Three
Half-human, half-shifter.
Xander has secretly yearned for a mate for most of his immortal existence,
and yet after three of his friends found exactly what he’s always
wanted, he’d come to believe that he’d missed his chance at happiness.
Until he heard her voice.
Frost is a wildlife biologist and tracker and she has been assigned,
despite her adamant protests, to lead mercenaries into the mountains
of Snowfall, Colorado for the sole purpose of killing immortal
shifters. In order to protect those who have no idea the kind
of danger they are in, she agrees. As she leads the armed men
on a wild chase around the snow-covered pines, she could sense that
she was running out of time.
Until she heard his voice.
Xander understands exactly who Frost is the moment he hears her thoughts.
With the help of Kane and Gunnar, they eliminate those in her group
as they try to keep her safe. But during the fight, she is hurt
and all of his protective instincts flare to life. As Xander
learns more about her, he realizes that Frost might be the key to the
creation of the immortals, both vampire and shifter.
But when she becomes a target from those who want to destroy the Dark
Company and Xander’s family, how far will he go to save her?
***Paranormal Romance featuring HOT Vampires and Shifters. Contains explicit sex
scenes and each book in the series ends with a HEA.***
Jade
Dark Assassins Book Four
Jade never wanted a mate. She loved being an assassin and she had a family
in her fellow assassins, their mates, and little Silas. She truly had
everything she needed. But when Ghost assigned her to track the same
immortals who tried to kill Xander’s family, she couldn’t refuse.
But the complication arises when Ghost requests she partner with Noah, a
human and ex-special forces soldier. Jade has never worked with a
human before, much less one that hated her from the moment he laid
eyes on her. But she was a professional and if she could play a part
in destroying the immortals who threatened her family, she could
accept the human. If only she knew how to fight her attraction to him.
All Noah Hale wanted was to kill the immortals who lured his best friend
and fellow ex-Navy SEAL to his death. He had no desire to be teamed
with a beautiful tracker who mesmerized him the moment she turned her
emerald eyes his way. But in order to stop other soldiers from
pursuing the same fate, he needed to swallow his pride and work with
a group of immortals he didn’t trust.
As Jade and Noah track the group of shifters through the mountains of
Colorado, the danger lurking around every corner threatens everything
they both hold close. Will they be able to find a way through, together?
***Paranormal Romance featuring HOT Vampires and Shifters. Contains explicit sex
scenes and each book in the series ends with a HEA.***
Hunter
Dark Assassins Book Five
Half-vampire and half-shifter.
The one definitive belief panther-shifter Hunter and the other immortals
understood about shifters and vampires; vampire venom is deadly to
shifters and vice versa. But Hunter never worried about testing the
theory because he never wondered if he had a mate, even after a few
of his family had found their own. As he and two others stumble upon
and eliminate several rogue shifters, part of a larger group
determined to kill each of the assassins, Hunter also stumbles upon
the one woman destined to be his. There’s only one problem. She’s
part vampire.
All alone in the world.
Despite everything, Neri made a life for herself after she escaped from a
facility using her as a test subject. She has no past, no family, and
no connections to the world as far as she can remember. She stays to
herself and finds a routine, telling herself she isn’t lonely. But
everything changes when she spots Hunter and her first true memory
revealed. He was there the day someone injected her with an
experimental drug and changed into this cold being.
As Neri and Hunter navigate their newfound relationship, their journey
becomes even more complicated when they learn Neri’s venom is
deadly to shifters. But with help from the other immortals, Hunter
and Neri reveal her past and realize the extent of the threat Dark
Company has been dealing with for years.
But can their relationship survive with so much stacked against
them?

The Maids of Graye ~ Tour & Giveaway

The Whip Master
The Maids of Graye Book 1
by Breanna Hayse
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Your pleasure is his passion
Your pain is his pleasure
Come visit Graye Manor where Love Rules and Discipline Reigns Supreme
Dorian Graye is a master of the Florentine long-tail whip, and has made an
art form of throwing the braided snakes to paint a human canvas. Like
his Oscar Wilde namesake, he plays hard, but he loves even harder.
Under a slightly sadistic exterior is a man whose greatest desire is
for each of his precious submissives to find true love and ultimate
happiness. He allows nothing to stand in their way, and is willing to
sacrifice anything to grant them their heart’s desire… even if
the journey to that desire means suffering as the door to previously
unspoken taboos are opened and explored.
The time of the annual Festival has arrived and Graye Manor is bustling
with a frenzy of activity. Its rolling, manicured grounds echo with
the sharp sounds of a whip striking human flesh, and shrill cries
filled with both pain and pleasure follow, bringing excited smiles
and eager anticipation to the faces and hearts of the listeners. It’s
the time of the Cirque de Sade Festival, bringing with it the final
magnificent display of skills, beauty, and selfless service that will
end at the auction block.
Things happen in the Manor – things that the real world would never
embrace… Select applicants, known as Graye’s Maids, are trained
in the classic skills of a domestic; with one major difference. Each
girl is there because she’s drawn to the darker side of service and
flourishes under the command of a hard palm upon a bare backside –
or even, in more hardcore cases, the slash of a whip. It is here that
anything is possible, and everything is probable.
Mastering Annie
The Maids of Graye Book 2
#1 Multi-Genre Best-Selling Author Breanna Hayse brings you the
rerelease of the super sexy, provocative and exciting sequel to The
Whip Master! Here we discovered what happens to Dorian and Merry’s
beloved maid Fifty, whom the world will know as Annie when she leaves
Graye Manor. This story contains BDSM, explicit erotic scenes, edge
play and, of course, spanking and is on sale for a short time only so
grab her while she is hot!
Achieving the dream of a ‘happily ever after’ for Annie Graye starts with a
handsome Texan, a new contract, and the delicious pain of a hand-
crafted leather belt against her bare backside. And so her coming of
age from a slave in training to a contracted Graye Maid begins.
For Greg Carmichael, it’s neither Annie’s ‘specialized’ domestic
skills, nor the terms of her contract for which he purchased her. He
seeks a submissive to call his own, not because of a piece of paper,
but to be his to master; in heart, mind and soul. But he has a dark
side, one that goes beyond the limits of acceptable society, and he
knows that these limits are ones that Annie has refused to indulge.
Albeit an unorthodox way to begin a relationship, the specially trained
‘Graye Maid’ departs the comfort and safety of Graye Manor and
begins her one year term of service with her new owner. She discovers
not just a different side of the BDSM lifestyle, but that people
exist in the ‘real world’ who are able to accept her as she is.
Included among them is Greg’s beloved younger sister, Melanie, who
longs to experience the life of a submissive but has hidden her
desires in the dangerous shadows of a local BDSM club.
As her feelings for Greg deepen, Annie strives to please and be of
service to him, but secretly fears she cannot be everything he wants.
As time goes on, she questions her ability to trust and surrender to
his dark passions, and she is forced to face the fact that her dreams
of the ‘happily ever after’ she has always longed for might end
before their contracted year is up.
Is Annie’s desire to serve enough to conquer her fears and become the
type of submissive that Greg needs, or will she be forced to make a
choice between the man she is falling in love with, and the hard
boundaries that she refuses to ignore?

My first book, The Game Plan, was published in 2012 and opened the door
to the now-booming world of Age-Play literature. Since that time,
I’ve devoted my ‘spare’ time to writing, researching, community
involvement, and private and group pro bono counseling in deviant
behavior, alternative lifestyle, and addiction recovery.
I was formally ‘dungeon trained’ as a Domme before discovering my
submissive side when I joined the service. My scenarios are pulled
primarily from either personal experience or observation, including
spending time in BDSM clubs as the safety/medical officer. My
multi-faceted background allows me to glean from many avenues and
give a unique and intelligent literary experience through elements of
fantasy and fiction. I also discuss the questions and psychology of
the lifestyle in a manner that is fun and informative, and based on
‘the real deal.’
I live with my husband, musician, and fellow-author, John Hayse, and
two border collies in southern California. We practice a 24/7 D&S
relationship with speckles of AP (and many trips to Build-A-Bear),
and happily spend every moment together that we can. My hobbies
include my puppies, hiding my vanilla salt-water taffy where John
can’t find it, exotic art, collecting inspirational trinkets, and
developing my own paddle line. You can also see me as a featured
author/instructor in professional conference settings and as a
Sexpert for kinkyliterature.com.
