Ava Gregory is tired of
defending her desires and trying to live up to everyone’s expectations of her. She
wanted to be a photographer; her family disapproved. Ava told her boyfriend
that she wanted to be tied; he abused her and told her she was sick. Finally
she made her way to a BDSM club and during a lecture met Marina Marchant.
Marina took her on and played her, but it isn’t enough to bring Ava what she
truly deserves. Ava is waiting to be introduced to a male dom, who hopefully
can bring Ava what she needs.
Unable to overcome his
past and open his heart, Desmond Hale spends his time at the Pinnacle club,
playing with different subs. He had opened up a number of years prior and found
a woman, but she walked out on him, confirming his belief that he doesn’t
deserve love. Yet when his old friend Marina asks him to help Ava, he can’t say
no, even after his breath is stolen away during their initial meeting. Can he
finally open his heart and give it to Ava?
SERVING THE MASTER is an
exquisite story of a woman finding freedom within the ropes of Shibari and a
man opening his heart so she could steal it away. Ms. Bradley writes with such
emotion that the characters radiate on the page.
Soothing The Beast
Even though it has been
four years since she lost her sub to cancer, Marina Marchant refuses to risk
her heart or even be with a man in any way other than friendship. When she
plays in the scene, it is always with a woman and non-sexual. Most of her time
is spent on giving lectures on Shibari, the art of rope bondage. During one of
those lectures a man, who stands out among her usual pupils, captures her attention.
James Cortez is not truly
into the BDSM scene. He needs Marina and the Shibari ropes for something else
entirely. James used to be a reporter, covering war-torn and tragic countries
until a horrendous event changed him. Tortured by his memories and experiences,
James finds that traditional therapy and even hypnosis will not calm his mind.
Having heard about the meditative properties of sub-space, he comes to Marina
SOOTHING THE BEASTis an incredible story. Ms. Bradley’s
skilled hand brings every emotion to vivid life while the reader watches Marina
struggle with having feelings for a man and James trying to calm his mind. You
can’t miss Ms. Bradley’s stunning work.
