About Bound to Submit:

From the ruins of an abandoned church comes Baltimore's hottest and most exclusive BDSM club. Twelve Masters. Infinite fantasies. Welcome to Blasphemy…

He thinks he caused her pain, but she knows he's the only one who can heal her…

Kenna Sloane lost her career and her arm in the Marines, and now she feels like she's losing herself. Submission is the only thing that ever freed her from pain and made her feel secure, and Kenna needs to serve again. Bad. The only problem is the Dom she wants once refused her submission and broke her heart, but, scarred on the inside and out, she's not looking for love this time. She's not even sure she's capable.

Griffin Hudson is haunted by the mistakes that cost him the only woman he ever loved. Now she's back at his BDSM club, Blasphemy, and more beautiful than ever, and she's asking for his help with the pain he knows he caused. Even though he's scared to hurt her again, he can't refuse her, because he'd give anything to earn a second chance. And this time, he'll hold on forever.

Excerpt 


Hey everyone! I’m so excited for the release of Bound to Submit, the first official book in my brand new and super-hot Blasphemy series! And today, I’m sharing an excerpt from the book, an erotic second-chance love story featuring a tormented Dom and a veteran amputee heroine – this is my first story with a female veteran and I adored writing Kenna’s character! I hope you’ll enjoy this taste and pick up your copy – and welcome to Blasphemy!

Now, here’s a peak at the emotion and connection between Griffin and Kenna in Bound to Submit – enjoy!



“You came for me,” Kenna whispered, peering up at Griffin standing at her front door. She hadn’t thought she wanted to see him tonight after their fight, but now she knew she was wrong. Because, God, his rugged face looked a whole lot like coming home.

“I did,” he said, stepping closer. So close that his heat warmed her body. “And I’ll keep doing it until you tell me to stop.”

“Griffin,” she whispered, the intensity in his voice stirring so much inside her. Feelings, memories, desires.

“Aw, baby, come here,” he said, pulling her into a bear hug so comforting that she choked out a little cry from the sheer relief of it.

Kenna buried her face in his broad chest and breathed him in. Her arms circled his strong back, and then they stood there for a long time, just holding each other. How could he make her feel so much when they’d been apart for so long? Why did this feel so natural with Griffin despite those years? How could she find a moment like this one, of such peace and solace, after all they’d been through?

She didn’t know, but part of her wondered if the whys and hows mattered. Some people waited their wholes lives to find even a fraction of what she felt in that moment. Maybe that was what mattered. Maybe that was all that mattered.

“Can I please come in?” he asked, his lips against her hair.

She nodded, motioning for him to enter. “It’s, um, it’s not much.” She looked around the small studio—it looked like a dorm, only without any personality or color.

“It’s where you are,” he said. “That’s all that matters to me.”

He was killing her with his sweetness right now, he really was. “Um. Okay.” She grasped the end of her stump, shielding it with her hand. “Can I get you something to drink? I think I have—”

“Baby.” He got right up in her space again.
 

"What?”

Baby,” he whispered, leaning in close. His lips brushed her cheek. “You don’t have to entertain me. You don’t have to hide from me.” Gently, he pulled her fingers from what was left of her forearm.

She released a shaky breath. “It’s not pretty.”

He shook his head and made a noise low in his throat. “No, it’s not. It’s fucking beautiful. Because it’s a part of you. A part of you that got injured in the service of your country, Kenna. Your arm is a damn badge of honor as far as I’m concerned. Come here.”

A warm pressure expanded within her chest. What was he doing to her? Because right now, his words were wrapping around her as tight as his ropes ever did.

What I thought about Bound to Submit

Marine veteran Kenna Sloane returns from service with some serious challenges.  She's lost an arm and faces constant pain.  While everything isn't terrible, she still struggles with being home, especially since she lost her best friend in the same IED explosion. When she realizes that submitting in a BDSM scene might just be what she needs to ease to her mind and relieve her emotional and physical pain, she decides to return to Blasphemy,  a club she knows well from her pre-Marine days.  

It's where the master she loved rejected her. 

Griffin's had some time to think about what he lost when Kenna walked out of his life and he's going to work hard to make up for breaking Kenna's heart.  As they reconnect together, Kenna and Griffin are going to have to figure out just what their new relationship means.

I was hooked on this series with Hard To Serve, and Bound to Submit is a steamy addition to the series.  I loved how Griffin treated Kenna when he got his second chance. He still understands what she needs and he's happy to provide it through his bondage play.  But he's ready for more, and Kenna doesn't want her heart broken again.  

Everything worked for me in this novella.  The heat level was high, as was the emotional connections between the main characters that went beyond the walls of the BDSM club.  Griffin knew exactly how to balance his dominant personality with Kenna's needs, and it was easy to fall for him.  

Great addition to the series.  The friendship of the twelve masters makes for an interesting group of friends and I'm eager to read their stories.
