Brea Oliphant refers to herself as “This Slave”.  In her mind, being treated like an abused slave is the only value of her worthless life.  A product of an abusive background, Brea learned from an early age that ill-treatment and pain were the way of life, so she turns to the BDSM lifestyle, purposely seeking out brutal punishment.

 

Dakota “Dak” Ricci has given up the Dom/submissive life after his last sub left him because he refused to be a ruthless, violent Dom.  Dak thought of himself as a failure because he could not physically and emotionally satisfy his submissive.  Nevertheless, Dak allows his best friend to talk him into remaining an member of a group that specializes in rescuing physically battered submissives from their Doms and Dommes.

 

This rescue mission turns out to be more than Dak and Brea bargain for.  Will Brea be able to see that even as a submissive that her body is worthy of admirable and lovable treatment?  And, more importantly, will Dak realize that he is indeed a commendable Master Dom?

 

Woman in Chains has taught me that the BDSM lifestyle is foremost about trust, honesty, respect, and conformity.  Without these key elements, there can never be a good, solid Dom/submissive relationship.  It is a struggle for Dak and Brea to build a strong foundation.  Brea has major trust issues and thinks of herself as undeserving of a loving relationship.  Likewise, Dak has self-esteem concerns as a Dom after it had taken a beating when his last submissive had left him without a trace.  Yet, Dak and Brea could not deny the strong attraction between them.  I enjoyed the couple’s journey to redemption, the discoveries of a wholesome BDSM relationship, and to true love.

Tilly Jackson is a barmaid in the West.  Usually content, she sometimes gets a ‘feeling’ and realizes that the time to move on from where she is to another town. She’s getting that feeling now, but something else has caught her eye, or rather someone else…

 

Leo Samuels can’t believe that someone as lovely as Tilly would want to be with him – which is why he is a bit leery of her request.  But as more time passes, what started out as a brief encounter turns into something more.

 

First off, Tilly was brave and I adored her.  She wasn’t afraid to go after what she wants and she wanted Leo.  Speaking of Leo, he was a long tall drink of blue eyed water and was sexy with a capital S.  I like how he treated Tilly and I loved that he loved her.

 

Not a bad novel. I found that some of the typos pulled me out of the story, other than that, In the Hands of an Outlaw wasn’t a bad book – but it could have been a bit more polished.  I think Renee LaRuse is a talented author having read more books from her and I can honestly say that her books are entertaining and quite erotic.  Which are both winners in my book.

A series of fortuitous circumstances brought human nurse Leroy Wilde into the world of gargoyles and shifters.  Since the gargoyle in charge of the mansion’s clinic hasn’t mated yet it is Leroy’s responsibility to handle any medical situations that come up during the daylight hours.  Most nights he’s working at the nearby human hospital, so it’s a lot of hours and little sleep with no end in sight until Perseus finds his mate.

 

Rescued after close to two decades of captivity boa constrictor shifter Caladon O’Hara is reveling in his freedom within the sunny arboretum at the gargoyle’s mansion.  The gargoyle clutch has assured Caladon that they will be able to track down his human wife and their son Taolma.  He was captured when his son was a toddler; it’s hard to imagine that Taolma has grown into a man without Caladon able to watch the changes happen.

 

The bliss of freedom almost pales in comparison to bumping into his human mate at the mansion.  Leroy can’t deny feeling the ‘mate pull’ for Caladon, yet past experiences remind him that his family will do anything to stop their son from dating a non-white.  Learning that Caladon is married and has a grown son simply adds to an already difficult situation.  Untangling this mess will take some time, patience, and love.

 

Accepting Caladon’s Scales proves to be one obstacle after another for well meaning human nurse Leroy.  Brought into the paranormal world by fate Leroy accepts life at face value, including his family’s issues with his boa constrictor mate Caladon.  Raised by bigots, it is Leroy’s moral strength and Caladon’s love that make this story work out so well.  Enjoy Accepting Caladon’s Scales for the positive, loving message it sends.

Charlie Marine has been kidnapped by aliens!  Determined take a vacation in order to recuperate from the loss of her parents and one of her sisters, Charlie plans a trip to Mars in spite of the countless abductions on Earth.  Then, before she knows it, Charlie has been taken to serve as an alien submissive.

 

Dragon shifter Rhyker Aluhira is looking for a mate.  However, he gets more than he bargains for when he is presented with the beautiful Earthling, Charlie.  She is opinionated, feisty, and unwilling to be an obedient mate, yet Rhyker desires her like no other.  Will Rhyker be able to keep Charlie out of danger in a world where women are expected to be submissive without question?  And, more importantly, will he be able to convince her that they belong together?

 

Ensnared got off to a rocky start. At the beginning, I could not stand Charlie. While, I understood her actions and determination, I felt that she could have handled the situation better.  Do not get me wrong.  I admire a strong-willed woman; but, sometimes Charlie’s behavior was unnecessarily over the top. Nevertheless, Charlie redeemed herself by the end of the story.  On the flipside, I did love the constant tug-of-war between Charlie and Rhyker and their flaming hot chemistry.  When they finally did come together in a sexual way, it was explosive and very passionate.  Overall, Ensnared was good read.

Deputy Will Cooper recently joined the Gray’s Harbor County PD in West Washington after a scandal back home in Sacramento made it impossible to stay with the department there.  Hoping for a new beginning Will is ill prepared for the blatant racism he faces with the native Chitwhen tribe, particularly towards the local PD.

 

Feelings of distrust between the two sides make things truly awkward after meeting Colin Sharpe, an advocate for Chitwhen students.  The Native American and the deputy undress each other with their eyes at every glance.  An unplanned encounter on neutral territory and the sparks fly

 

When a Native teenager spouts ugly accusations against the deputy their relationship is put to the test.  Colin keeps hoping that everything will quiet down but others, including his father, won’t back down from believing the lies being told.  Will’s entire life is put under a microscope and there’s no end in sight.

 

Emotionally charged, Where the World Ends pits love against family.  Will and Colin have real issues, their chemistry is unmistakable.  Unfortunately Will’s quiet stoicism works against him and Colin’s inability to stand his ground further crumbles their romance.  Racism skirts the plotline, but it’s personality and family at the heart of Where the World Ends.  Love is the goal and it is a long road getting there for Will and Colin.
