Author’s Note: This is part One of Two for Alex and Jessica’s story. In Alexandr’s Cherished Submissive we get a look into the past and the events that shaped Alex and Jessica into the people they are today. Part Two is Alexandr’s Reluctant Submissive.


Jessica Venture has suffered much loss over her young lifetime.  First, she loses her birth mother during her adolescence years and two years ago, she lost both adoptive parents.  Alone in the world, Jessica jumps at the chance to spend time bonding with her birth mother’s brother and his wife in Dublin, Ireland.  Her life becomes more complicated when she meets and falls head over hills in love with Alexandr, who just happens to be a well-known womanizer.


Notorious Russian Mobster, Alexandr Novikov is completely thrown by his instant attraction to Jessica.  Alexandr knows that at present, he cannot claim Jessica as his woman because of his family’s deadly enemies.  Yet, no matter how hard he tries, he cannot stay away from her alluring charm and the need to broadening her undiscovered submissive nature.


Will Alexandr be able to keep Jessica out of harm’s way?  And, more importantly, will she become a willing submissive partner to his Dominant nature.


Alexandr’s Cherished Submissive is a very powerful, intense, suspenseful drama that will instantly grab you and have you hanging on the edge of your seat with eagerness and pure excitement.  Jessica and Alexandr’s courtship is full of life.  Sparks fly as danger lurks around every corner.  Sexual encounters are kinky, steamy and lustfully naughty.  From start to finish, Ann Mayburn had me on an emotional high.  So, keep plenty of tissues and ice cold water nearby because you will definitely need them.


Although, young in age, Jessica is self-assured, feisty, and a well-rounded, likable woman.  With her virtuousness and congenial nature, she is able charm her way into the hearts of the most lethal of criminals.  In contrast, Alexandr is a dark, hardcore Dominant with blood on his hands and full of secrets.  Alexandr and Jessica, although total opposites, they mesh very well.  I cannot wait to get my hands on the second part of Jessica and Alexandr story!

Rya DeLuca is a true submissive who loves to top women; but, she yearns for the ultimate male domination.  So after much inner debate, Rya partakes in the Submissive’s Wish Charity Auction.  However, after a huge letdown during the auction, Rya decides to just spend the rest of her vacation having fun with various female subs.  That is until she meets Dimitri Novikov – a Dom who fulfills all her BDSM desires and much more.


Dangerous. Deadly. Ruthless. Handsome. Dominant.  Dimitri Novikov is a member of the powerful Russian Mafia.  While, Dimitri has bedded countless women, he refuses to fall in love for fear that she would become his weakness and a target in the eyes of his enemies and heartless family members.  That is until he meets and instantly falls head over heals in love with Rya DeLuca.


I so love bad boys!  And, let me tell you that Dimitri fits the bill perfectly.  He is a criminal and proud of it.  While Dimitri’s professional world leaves a lot to be desired, his personal demeanor left me feeling all mushy inside.  The unconditional love, devotion, nurturing and possessive nature that Dimitri has towards Rya is indescribable – so much so, that I could easily overlook his dark side.


Likewise, Rya is no shrinking violet.  She is independent, smart, sexy, and sassy.  However, when it comes to being in the bedroom with Dimitri, Rya is the perfect submissive to his massive, dominant ways.  This couple compliment each other very well.  By the end, I was all hot and bothered from the very naughty, sensual, BDSM foreplay.


Everything about Dimitri’s Forbidden Submissive is magnificent.  From the smooth flowing dialogue, the unceasing dangerous threat level, to the scorching hot romance between Dimitri and Rya.  There is never a dull moment to be found in this novel.


I Joyfully Recommend Ann Mayburn’s  Dimitri’s Forbidden Submissive!
