Title: Josiah’s Love and Justice 

            Volume IV: Bound In Love

Author: Lucas X. Black 
Genre: BDSM

 

 

The saga continues as a new client arrives to be trained and kept in custody as her master travels overseas on a work assignment where he cannot take her. Her conduct opens up old wounds inside Becky, and a counselor’s presence only makes things worse, but the family rallies around to try to heal those wounds once and for all. Meanwhile, Anita’s family shocks her with their knowledge of her lifestyle and a dose of tough love. A profoundly changed Molly strives to make amends to people she wronged not long ago, and in this, blunders onto help for Becky.
As a way of repayment, the slaves all contribute to a special gift for Josiah, a gift of their love for him and understanding of an important part of his past. Along the way, bonds tighten among the family, as master and slaves all grow together…
 

 

 
 

 

 Excerpt:
“I always understood better the clients coming to me for punishment for real wrongs,” Lucretia said.  “And my conscience doesn’t bother me one bit here for the things I’ve done with my brothers and sisters.  We’re here by consent, admit we deserve it, and not only accept but embrace the consequences of misconduct.  But I understand guilty feelings don’t listen to exonerating logic, Simon.  Don’t decide right now.  Take time to think this through.  If you want me to take you to my dungeon to help you get rid of this, I’m willing, and I bet Master would understand.  If you’d rather the other slaves don’t know, then it’ll be only for you and me to know.  It can be confusing to slaves seeing a master taking punishment.  When I was with Tony, I went to another dominatrix I knew for sessions, and never breathed a word of it to him until that day we broke up.  He wouldn’t have understood.  Anyway, kick it around, and if you feel that’s what’ll get you through this, I’m willing.”  She kissed him gently and smiled.  “In case you haven’t figured this out, you big dummy, we’re all very fond of you.  If Josiah is the father of this family, I think of you and Anita as a favored uncle and cousin.  Shall we go back to the cabin?”

 

 
“Yeah … I want to check in on Anita,” Simon said.  “And I guess I owe a tall apology to everyone for the fool I made of myself over there.”

 

“No, you really don’t,” Lucretia said.  “Get your cracker ass in the truck and let’s head back.  I’m hungry.”

He works as a beadle, paid to punish and train slaves belonging to others, whose owners have difficulty doing so. He also owns an old horse farm, where he taps into the competitive spirit of other doms and masters with rickshaw races held on occasion.

excerpt
*Copyright Rachel M Raithby

She woke in a strange bed, surrounded by unfamiliar smells and in a world of pain. Yet she wasn’t in a hospital, so that meant the man who’d ran her off the road had heard her desperate plea.

Attempting to sit up, Becca gasped as her skin stretched, igniting fire through her nerves. Feet sounded from the other room and a second later, a man appeared at the door. He was huge. Alex had been well built, and covered in sleek muscles, but this guy was on a whole other level. He filled the doorway, to the point where Becca thought he’d have to turn slightly sideways to fit through. His arms bulged with layer upon layer of pure, lethal strength. She was sure she’d be unable to wrap her fingers around them. A tight T-shirt stretched over the chiseled planes of his chest and stomach, and seemed to be painted to his skin. Becca gulped as her eyes traveled up to his face. She’d never met a man like him. Rough, masculine beauty, with skin of bronzed gold and hair of the darkest ink, he made Becca’s skin flush hot, and her mind scramble.

“You’re awake.”

She didn’t answer, her voice lodged in the pit of her stomach.

“Are you okay?”

The same stupid question snapped Becca from her daze. “You ran me over. Of course I’m not okay.”

An unreadable emotion flashed across his gaze, before he said “Hmm, yeah, sorry about that.” He rubbed the back of his neck in an awkward gesture. The movement scattered Becca’s thoughts, her eyes focusing on the flex of muscle and stretch of clothing.

“So, why no hospital?”

Her eyes zeroed in on his face, narrowing; she’d not be telling her secrets to another man again. She’d learned her lesson. “None of your damn business.”

Deciding it was time she was back on the road, running from her demons, Becca forced herself up. She couldn’t stop the noise of pain, even though she’d bitten her lip in hopes of doing so. From encountering years of hurt, physical pain wasn’t anything compared to months of mental torture.

“Wow, what are you doing?” He entered the room, seeming to take up every inch of space. “Get back in bed. You’re in no state to be going anywhere.”

Becca ignored him and glanced around the room. “Where’s my jacket and boots?” Her muscles protested with each miniscule movement.

“Get back in bed before I put you there.”

She would never follow orders from a man again. “Listen to me, asshole, I don’t take orders kindly, and definitely not from men who’ve run me off the road.” Fire filled her words, an old anger awoken.

Forcing herself to take a step, her head swam. A wave of dizziness passed through her like a drug. Her limbs went limp, losing any energy she’d had. Breath rushing out in a startled gasp, Becca’s knees gave way, and she braced for the pain that would follow from hitting the floor.

It never came. He’d moved with such speed, she’d not been aware of him reaching for her. He held her as if she weighed nothing, his strength and heat almost overpowering.

“I said, back in bed.”

Becca narrowed her eyes, mustering as much defiance as possible into her tone. “I want my jacket, boots and bike.”

Ignoring her demand, he carried her toward the bed. Becca struggled, though the effort was painful and pointless. Even fully healed, she’d have had no chance against this man. Mouth set in a hard line and eyes blazing with rage, Becca attempted to hold her ground and masked the fear within.

A part of her wondered if she’d run from one abusive man and straight into the arms of another. Would he hold her captive? For all she knew, this man could be even worse than Alex. Yet even as her pain whispered her fears, her instincts didn’t tell her to run. That was why she fought him when she knew he was right, because her first instinct was to melt. But her instincts had been wrong before. She’d never suspected Alex to be the man he was.

But you were innocent then, the seductive voice whispered. You’re not innocent anymore… Melt!

Shaken by the direction of her thoughts, Becca lost her fight and succumbed to being pressed tightly against his body, her breasts crushed against the heated wall of his chest.

“Bed,” he whispered roughly.

Her mask slipped for a second as she pictured not this stranger’s face, but Alex’s with his lips curled in a cruel smile, and the look in his eyes telling her he intended to hurt her tonight. Cold air replaced what had once been sizzling heat. Loss and loneliness pulsated through her, and she bit her lip to keep the desperate, needy sound inside her contained.

Placing her onto the bed, he retreated immediately. Becca stared at the man who’d been manhandling her a second ago, but now watched with concern from across the room.

“I won’t hurt you.”

“Too late for that,” Becca muttered before she could stop herself.

“Not intentionally. If you would really like to leave, then be my guest, but your bike won’t start and the more you move around, the longer it’s going to take for your back and hands to heal.”

At the mention of her wounds, Becca felt the full extent of her pain. She’d been so determined to escape that she hadn’t felt the stab of agony as she flexed her hands, or moved her back. Looking down, Becca gazed at her torn fingers. Slowly turning her hands over, she inspected the pads of gauze taped to each palm.

“You should have worn gloves,” he murmured softly. Though Becca was certain she heard a thread of anger.

“Didn’t exactly have much time,” Becca whispered, not bothering to look up.

“What’s that supposed to mean?” he asked, taking a step closer.

“Nothing.” Looking up, she met his gaze. “What’s your name?”

“Aster.”

“Aster. I’m Becca. I’m gonna take that offer of rest now.”

He smiled and it was completely disarming. Aster had a dominating, lethal presence, but when he smiled with a softness in his eyes, it made her relax and forget the walls she’d built around herself to keep people out. “I’ll see you in the morning then. Shout if you need anything.”

The door closed with a soft click, and a heaviness spread throughout her body. Lying back, she pulled the covers over herself and succumbed to sleep. She should have been frightened; after all, she’d killed a person earlier that day, and Alex would be hunting her down. But even though she was in a stranger’s house, and her only mode of transport was broken, safety wrapped a protective arm around her as she relaxed, preparing for sleep. It was silly, and irrational, but still, she felt safe.

 review

Rating:  5 ✩✩✩✩✩

This is the first book I’ve read by this author, but it most definitely won’t be the last.  It should be packaged with the following label. “WARNING!  Nothing will be done, food prepared, fires put out, etc. Until the reader has completed the final chapter.”  Because that’s what will happen.

I had no idea what to expect from this book.  I accepted it as an ARC for my blog, so I knew the blurb must have interested me, because I’ve severely cut down the amount of books I take in to review.  My TBR short list, is a mile long.  But when I downloaded the book to my Kindle, I was clueless in what to expect.  

I read the first paragraph and BAM I was hooked.  Breakfast and lunch were made and consumed while reading.  I might have burnt something.  I was enraptured.  The pacing was perfect which kept me turning the pages, having to find out what happened next.  The characters were well fleshed.  In Aster’s case extremely well fleshed.  He and his beast are so going on my Book Boyfriend list.  And Becca makes me want to alternately hug her close, or shake some self confidence and self worth into her.  I love that the main characters have to grow in some way before they are able to accept each other.  They are not perfect people, but you want to root for them and cheer them on, when they finally realize, that they don’t have to be perfect to be loved..

This book touched me on many levels.  I look forward to exploring more books by this author.  I would recommend this book to anyone who like paranormal shifter romances.

BROKEN SURRENDER
by LORI KING
 

One bullet made it physically impossible for
Sarah Bryant to fulfill her dreams of a military career. With her family’s
sympathy suffocating her, she escapes to Stone River, Texas, determined to
rebuild a life and maybe find a new dream. 
Silas and Jeremy are two brothers who are as
different as Texas is big. One is an adrenaline fueled former Army medic, the
other is a laid back tow truck business owner. The two things they have in
common? They know they want to live life in a ménage relationship, and Sarah is
the woman for them. 
Sarah has too many doubts about herself to
believe she can be enough for one man let alone two. Can these souls find what
they need to grow together, or will they leave more emotional scars to match
their physical ones?

Heat and heart while learning to accept a bit of help.

I absolutely adored this book.  If you love a good ménage or maybe a bit curious, then this is the book for you.  It will tug at your heartstrings one moment, then have you fanning your yourself in the next.  There is plenty of love and lust interspersed with humor and growth.

Sarah has to grow and heal, before she can accept Silas and Jeremy fully into her life.  Luckily these sexy men are more than able to give her the encouragement and support she needs to get there.

I heartily recommend this book to anyone who loves a HEA, and ménage.  This baby just went to #1 favorite Lori King book.

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review, but I also purchased my own copy.


STARTING OVER by MAGEN MCMINIMY

in every twist and sweep of his talented tongue. A need for something tangible,
something to connect him to the safety of the real world, to the living
breathing life he still held on to. A distraction from the death and sorrow
that carried over from months at war

Mason Gamble and Nash Vincent are pros at making people
sweat. As former Army Rangers who run the toughest, ball-busting fitness boot
camp in Michigan, they take great pride in that fact. But thanks to the
knockout brunette housesitting next door, suddenly they’re the ones
experiencing excess perspiration. Fortunately, the perfect opportunity to be
neighborly presents itself courtesy of a package delivery snafu.
Regan Wallace has trust issues. Specifically,
trusting that her best friend won’t make good on her threat to send a
Strip-O-Gram for Regan’s birthday. Is it any wonder she’d jump to the wrong
conclusion when two gorgeous, camo-garbed hunks land on her front doorstep?
Woops. The crazy part? They don’t seem the least bit scandalized or offended by
her boneheaded blunder. Judging by the sinful heat in their eyes, they’re all
too happy to provide her with a little two-on-one dirty dancing. For a woman
recovering from a bad breakup, fielding the interest of two sex-on-a-stick men
is both surreal and exhilarating. Indulging a three-way fling? Completely out
of her comfort zone. But with her stay limited to a week, some
no-strings-attached sex might be precisely what she needs to get her confidence
back in stride.None of them are prepared for the consequences
of a sexy fling feeling like so much more. As Regan’s stay draws closer to an
end, Mason and Nash realize there’s no way in hell they’re letting the perfect
woman slip through their fingers. And when it comes to fighting for her love,
there are no fitter warriors for the ultimate battle to her heart.

Former army rangers, Mason and Nash want nothing more than to get up close and personal with their curvaceous new neighbor they’ve named Miss Lucious.  Regan has a weakness for men in uniform, and a BFF who helps run a strip club. So is it any wonder she comes to the wrong conclusion when the studly duo show up in her doorway with a box of adult toys.  Thus began a deliciously engaging story that was had me turning the pages from beginning to end.  Light-hearted, fun, sexy read I would recommend to my friends.
