Recently Oliver was instrumental in stopping a psychopath from committing murder at the hospital where he works as a nurse.  At the time Olly was cool and calm.  Since then the sweet submissive has had problems getting past the whole episode.  Without the love, support, and strength of Joe, his Dom, there’s no telling how he’d be able to deal with it.


The couple, along with Dominant Heath and his partner Aiden, run The Edge, a highly successful business that allows people to explore the BDSM lifestyle.  Their tenth anniversary is coming soon and the plan is to throw a huge party.  It’s bad enough that Olly is suffering from nightmares over what happened, getting everything perfect for the party is throwing him further into a major meltdown.


Taking a break from party planning with Aiden, the sub runs into the last person he expects to find on the private beach, his number one nemesis Mark Vickery.  A brutal, vicious man bent on revenge against Olly, the man who blew the whistle on his deviant behavior.  It’s a race against time for Joe and their friends to find Olly and stop Mark for good.


A terrific blend of action, drama, and sensuality Binding the Edges brings heart pounding danger to life.  Emotional tension plays out as Olly comes to grips with what happened in the near past and what he’s faced with now.  The well crafted characters are riveting, the plotline intelligent, and the climax satisfying as Olly learns the true meaning of friendship.  The Tales from the Edge series never disappoints and Olly, well, he’s one in a million.

Several months past fireman Salter ‘Beau’ Beauman was on hand after the Temple Church bombing attack, digging through the rubble searching for survivors.  Among the lucky ones was Marty Standish, a top government analyst desperately looking for his boss and mentor.


Not one for immediate gratification and willing to enjoy a challenge Beau has taken his time getting to know Marty.  There is no doubt in the Dom’s mind that the shy analyst is a submissive through and through.   As a member of The Underground BDSM club Beau has yearned for a submissive of his own and knew his wishes had been answered when he met Marty.


Beau’s planned seduction of Marty has been hampered by a persistent fire starter whose actions are becoming bolder with each fire.  Whatever has set this fire bug off must be stopped before someone is injured or worse.  In the meantime Beau will open Marty to a lifestyle they can both enjoy.  Unfortunately, someone is watching…

Employed by The Underground, London’s foremost BDSM club, it is Christian’s job to greet and process clients who enter.  A confident submissive who requires strict control from his partner Christian has had it bad for Dom Dave Beckett more than half a year.  Since the Dom visits The Underground somewhat infrequently Christian is going through a dry spell waiting for Beckett to show.  Aware that Beckett works for Her Majesty’s government as a spy allowances have to be made.


When Beckett finally does grace the club with his presence after weeks away Christian is thrilled.  It becomes a special night to remember as it seems that both men are ready to make more of a commitment to each other.


But before the Dom is able to voice his decision to change he is called away on business the following morning.  A call of impending danger becomes a life and death terrorist bombing and the spy is caught at the epicenter.  The badly injured Dom will need to rely on the strength of his submissive to heal.  Their relationship is about to be put to the ultimate test.


The fourth installment in the Tales from the Edge series takes readers on an explosive journey.  A Double-Edged Sword is a character driven sexual odyssey, an adult sensual drama.  Christian and Beckett’s sexual exploration is interrupted by an enormous trauma that gives them the opportunity to honestly discover each other more intimately.   This series continues to offer stimulating, mature storylines to enjoy.  A Double-Edged Sword excites and thrills with realistic characters and a wicked plotline that entertains from start to finish.

The Underground offers their clientele a safe place to explore and satisfy their BDSM desires.  It is so popular that owner/manager Carey Hoffman only needs to advertize for wait staff positions once a year.  Carey’s been looking for a submissive of his own for a long time and the moment he set his eyes on Alistair Easton he knew his search was over with the newly hired server.


Though it’s been more than a year or so Carey is still hesitant to take that last step and formally collar Alistair.  The sub is sure they belong together, but the fifteen year age difference bothers the older Dom.


Embracing his sexuality as a teenager Alistair was driven from his home by his powerful businessman father when he came out.  The submissive never looked back, but recent news of his sire’s appointment to a major law firm worries him.  Apparently with good reason it seems.  It will take every resource Carey has to save his lover from the clutches of his father’s twisted plans.  Their age gap means nothing when love is the key to their happily ever after.


Sensual dominance rules the day in Dancing on the Edge where desire sets the standard in tasteful erotic love play.  Carey and Alistair come to life and prove their commitment to each other in this sensual story.  Fans of the series will enjoy hearing from characters in previous books, new readers will be hooked.  Sexy, humorous, and intense the BDSM lifestyle is tame compared to a powerful sire’s intentions.  Embrace the claims of Dancing on the Edge.
