He scared me. He thrilled me. And after one touch, all I could think about was getting more... Makayla never thought she'd set foot in an elite mixed martial arts club. But if anyone needs a medic on hand, it's these guys. Then again, at her first sight of the club's owner, she's the one feeling breathless. The man they call Torment is all sleek muscle and restrained power. Whether it's in the ring or in the bedroom, he knows exactly when a soft touch is required and when to launch a full-on assault. He always knows just how far he can push. And he's about to tempt Makayla in ways she never imagined...

While giving her friend a helping hand, straight-laced Makayla ends up in more trouble than she can handle.  Makayla and her friend are taking money at the door of an illegal MMA tourney when she runs into a man determined to torment all her waking and dreaming hours.  Torment is a star fighter and uses his own gym for MMA tournaments.  He is caught off guard by the spunky beauty that runs into his club determined to track down a line jumper.  Once he gets her attention he is not letting her go.  Makayla doesn’t know how to handle this sexy fighter with the alpha attitude but she is willing to give it a try considering he makes her want to drool.  These two opposites are attracting but can they find love?

 

Sarah Castille’s Against the Ropes is a hard hitting romance with a hot couple and a dash of suspense.  Poor Makayla has a hysterical first meeting with Torment.  I could not stop laughing.  The humor is great but the sex appeal is even better.  Torment and Makayla definitely know how to heat things up fast!  I love Torment’s strong Alpha attitude.  He definitely has the, “you are my woman, I will take care of you” thing down pat.

How do you claim the heart of a fox? Tempt her into giving it up. Forbidden Passions, Book 5Though Sara Beth Reynard shuns the spotlight, her sensual animal nature always draws unwanted attention. On the rare occasions she leaves fox territory to supervise a construction project, humans are her number one hassle. When the discovery of human/animal DNA makes her a sleazy tabloid’s lead story, Sara finds the whole thing laughable. Right up until some goon attempts to kidnap her. Worse, her alpha sends her to the wereeagles, clan of her childhood nemesis, for help. Patrick Aquila takes one look at the grown-up version of “Foxy”, and wants to peel away all her layers of uptight and proper. His attempt to show her a night of lighthearted fun turns into an off-the-charts explosion of passion. But romance among weres is never that simple. Patrick is in a race against time to convince Sara Beth they belong together, and find the snitch who is feeding information to not just one stalker, but two. The reporter who wants to hang her out to dry, and a hunter who wants to hand her over to her worst nightmare. Warning: A reluctant fox, a sexy alpha eagle willing to pull every erotic trick in the book to keep her, and an obsessed big game hunter.

Fox shifter Sara Beth Reynard is in trouble. She is forced to seek help from the last person she wants when someone tries to kidnap her.  Eagle shifter Patrick Aquila is surprised by the powerful attraction he feels to grown-up Sara Beth. After all, he used to pick on his little “Foxy.”  The thought of her being in danger angers him greatly and he is determined to do anything to protect her.  Protecting her may be a lot easier than convincing her they are mates.  Sara Beth finds it hard to believe that Patrick could ever be satisfied with her.  Will Patrick be able to keep her safe and convince her of his love?

 

Secret Passions is an exciting romance!  Sara Beth and Patrick have excellent chemistry in and out of the bedroom.  I love the scene where they are reunited in the beginning of the book and Patrick realizes how attracted he is to her.  The suspense plotline is interesting but not a huge part of the story.  The couple definitely stays center stage.  Sara Beth’s character is a bit insecure which is nice to see every once in a while in a shifter story.  While she doesn’t like it when Patrick calls her “foxy” I think it is quite funny.  Secret Passions is another great addition to the Forbidden Passions series. Secret Passions can be read as a standalone. However, if you are a Forbidden Passions lover it is a lot of fun hearing about what is happening in some of the former couple’s lives.

Harvester risked everything to protect the four horsemen and keep the world from falling apart and just when she should be thinking it was a job well done, someone informed her father, Satan, that she was a traitor to him and her time in hell has just become very, very real.

 

Reaver is an angel who fell and then regained his wings through his quick actions and helping the innocent.  He also learned, belatedly, that he was the real father of the four horsemen and he is quickly trying to catch up on all the time with them that he lost all these years.

 

When a family get together of Reaver’s children families happens and someone uses it to hurt several of them, he wastes no time trying to find what happened and who was behind it.  The trail to those answers seems to lead to getting Harvester away from Hell and back into the Earth realm.  While his children do not believe that Harvester would harm them or their families, Reaver isn’t sure about anything right now.  All he knows is that rescuing her won’t be easy because of their past history, and of course getting out of Hell is never an easy thing.  Harvester wants nothing to do with Reaver, but when she learns about what has happened to the four horsemen, she is totally behind him and so their dangerous journey begins.  Along the way, answers to questions they never even dreamed of asking show Reaver and Harvester that the passion between them was always there and meant to be – even with the ups and downs of fate and a meddling Archangel. Reaver and Harvester might finally be able to have the forever that should have been theirs so long ago, but only if they can get past the last of the betrayals that seek to tear them apart once and for all.

 

Neither Heaven nor Hell are safe when two Angels who risked everything find out about betrayals against them and re-discover a passion that was always theirs in Reaver.  I have wondered about both Reaver and Harvester through both of the series that they appeared in, Demonica and Lords of Deliverance.  I knew that there had to be major history between them and was there.  I just couldn’t believe what both of these amazing people had gone through and yet, when they had a chance to finally have their forever after, nothing, and I do mean nothing, was going to stop them.  I was torn because I wanted to rush through the book and yet I didn’t want their story to end either.  I found each and every turn held my attention and the way Reaver and Harvester found their passion again and they fought for it by all means possible had me cheering for them.  I cheered even louder when Reaver and Harvester were able to return something that had been taken by the most horrible betrayal.  At the end, I found much more than one happy ending and proof that all the characters I have loved in both series would do just fine – even with the ups and downs that faced them.  Reaver takes hold of you and just won’t let go from the first page until the back cover is closed the last time.

Part of the Knights of the Board Room series. Janet prefers her men submissive, her relationships confined to a club environment. Which is why her attraction to former Navy SEAL Max doesn't make a lot of sense. There isn't a submissive bone in his honed, muscular body, suggesting that her interest in him is best indulged as a private fantasy. After a crisis situation reveals a different side of them both, the attraction becomes mutual, explosive and undeniable. They take the plunge, willing to see if the give-and-take of their unexpected relationship can satisfy their deepest desires. Unfortunately, ghosts from their past might take the reins from them both, destroying the balance of power before their love can find a way to tip the scales. A Romantica® BDSM erotic romance from Ellora's Cave

JoyfullyRecommended

Janet Albright is a Dom Mistress to her core.  After surviving a horrific past, Janet became known as the Ice Queen who only allows herself to enjoy the non-emotional attachment type of relationships with familiar submissive men at an exclusive D/s club.  That is until she could no longer deny the strong attraction she feels towards Max Ackerman, a former Navy SEAL, who screams alpha male and does not have a submissive bone in his body.  Whereas desire refuses to be forbidden between them, will Janet and Max be able to maintain a lasting, meaningful relationship when both are very strong-willed and have dominant personalities?

 

Although, Willing Sacrifice is the sixth book in the Knights of the Board Room series, it can be read and enjoyed as a standalone novel.

 

Wow!  Talk about a novel that will pull at your heartstrings, Willing Sacrifice is all that and more.  I so enjoyed Janet and Max as a couple.  The chemistry showcased between them is explosively hot and very passionate.  As expected in a BDSM novel, there is lots of bondage foreplay.  The couple’s sexual encounters are wickedly lustful and very powerful in nature.  I must admit that I was greatly intrigued to see how author Joey W. Hill was going to pull off a D/s relationship between two very strong-willed characters.  I am glad to say that Ms. Hill did not disappoint and quickly won my heart with the compromises between Janet and Max – Janet’s willingness to research the mindset of a Navy SEAL when it comes to D/s foreplay and Max’s readiness to appease Janet’s Domme nature in the bedroom.  In addition to the sizzling hot sex, the storyline also contains a suspenseful undertone spilling from each character’s past.  All in all, Willing Sacrifice a superb read.  Positively a Joyfully Reviewed Recommended Read!
