Bonus story blurb: 
Millie Monroe is all about work, work, and more work. She's
one of twelve who own the highly successful sex club and resort franchise,
Surrender Inc., yet she's never set foot inside the owners' special playhouse,
Sanctuary. Her best friend Dmitri insists she attend the Sanctuary Submissives
Ball, where she meets a shy, fox faced man who is full of intriguing
secrets.



Excerpt:

5 Years Earlier



"Millie," Dmitri said, ignoring his coffee. "Go to the club.
You're a major shareholder in Surrender, and you haven't even been in any of
the establishments we own. For that matter, you haven't even set foot in
Sanctuary."



I smiled at my best friend, a giant of a Russian Canadian with emerald eyes
that saw right through me. Surrender Inc. was our new business venture. Well,
relatively new. We'd designed and launched the corporation three years ago.
Surrender Inc. was also our brand name for our exclusive chain of sex resorts
and sex clubs that catered to a range of clientele, from middle class to the
wealthiest of wealthy. Our clubs and resorts prided themselves on being clean
and safe. Every member had to be thoroughly tested for any sexually transmitted
diseases, and their criminal records were also checked. We offered sex services
ranging from BDSM to full body massage to birthday party orgies, just to name a
few.



Sanctuary was the top of the top--the board members little present to
themselves. It was a resort set up in an old, sprawling mansion the board
members had bought and refurbished. Only they or their close friends were
allowed inside Sanctuary.



And here I was one of those board members, owner of a trendy sex franchise that
was getting press in some of the most well-known erotic magazines, and I'd
never set foot inside any of our clubs, resort, or Sanctuary itself.



"No," I can't." I waved him off with a well-manicured hand, blew
away a lock of blonde hair that had fallen from my loose topknot. "I have
work to do."



Dmitri scowled at me, and when the waiter left after refilling my coffee, he
said, "Dammit, woman, you're always working. You need to play, too. How
long has it been?"



I sighed. Rarely did we butt dominant heads, except for that brief time we
tried to be lovers. We'd both clashed mightily, and the chemistry just fizzled
as we'd started to resent one another. To save our friendship, we mutually
agreed to call it off. We both punched way too many holes in the walls of our
apartments over the four months we'd given it a shot. We made great pals.
Lovers? Not so much. But he was the closest thing I had to an older brother.



"Since that club in New York," I finally told him, when he continued
to glare at my silence. "The one you and Roxy told me about, before she
left…"



He shook his head. "I haven't been with Roxy in over a year, so that
means--"



"Yeah, yeah." I waved him off. "It's been a year and a
half."



His sigh dripped frustration. "You know, you let your old patterns creep
back in every time you deny your dominant side."






Surrender
Ever After: The Complete Surrender Series Volume 2

also comes to work for the eccentric British Dom, and to be seduced by him.
Within the halls of Surrender Sanctuary can this trio fall in love, or will hot

Excerpt: 
The roof is beyond leaking. If I don’t get someone in soon,
the entire attic might become a swimming pool.



“I can fix it for you,” Jake says, and he notices my discomfort at his words,
because he quickly adds, “Or I know someone who can do it cheap.”



Pride. I shake my head at myself, knowing pride is going to kill me one day.
And a woman can’t be full of pride when she has two boys to raise and bills she
can’t pay piling up.



“Carrie.” Jake leans across the arborite table I picked up at a flea market and
squeezes my hand. “Let me help you.”



I smile at his boyish face, those cute dimples in his cheeks. “You’ve already
helped me by renting part of this place, and doing the fixing up you’ve already
done.”



Jake Black rents the apartment above the garage attached to my old two story
Cape Cod home. I inherited the place from my mom when she passed on, and it was
a lifesaver, since my husband of fifteen years picked that time--right after my
mother’s funeral--to leave me with two boys to raise. Preston and Michael are eight
and twelve.



Jake is undeniably handsome. He’s got a mix of boyish good looks and rugged
male, with his bright green eyes and rounded face, work roughened hands from
days spent as a carpenter, and a five o’ clock shadow that’s just as red as the
hair on his head. But we aren’t together. I’m just not ready for that yet. It’s
only been six months since I lost mom and went through the divorce.



That being said, there have been hot kisses and much more, but we haven’t had
sex yet. I don’t want to lead Jake on, or confuse my own currently messed up
head and heart. Still, when he moved in here to help me and the kids out, it
was a blessing I was entirely grateful for.



“There’s a lot more I could do for you,” he says, standing to walk behind my
chair and feather a few kisses up my neck.



I try to make a quip about this. “Two redheads shouldn’t sleep together. The
results could be catastrophic.” His tiny kisses make me shiver.



Just at that moment, my boys decide to run into the kitchen. Preston, my
youngest, holds a paper in his hand and his eyes are wide. “Mom, can I please
sign up for hockey this year?”



I don’t know what to say to that sweet, freckled face. His brown, puppy-like
eyes beseech, but we simply can’t afford it. Not ready to break his heart, I say,
“We’ll see, hon.”



He prunes his face and makes a minor protest, but Jake distracts them both with
the proposition of some two on one road hockey, out in the dirt alley that runs
between our place and Mrs. Granger’s. I’m thankful for the time this gives me
to think.



And that’s when I see it. An ad in the employment opportunities section catches
my attention. I already work on an assembly line building slot machines for a
living, but that wage barely covers the bills. It sure won’t fix the roof and
the other repairs this old home needs, and it won’t cover hockey fees for
Preston either.





Surrender To His Command: Surrender Series Volume 3

Surrender To His Command is Volume 3 of the Surrender
series, which continues the story of Surrender Inc., an exclusive sex resort /
club franchise where the elite go to play. It is the first stand-alone novella
in the series, rather than a four part serial.



Rider Sykes is a dominant in need of practice, or so his clients tell him.
Christy Tyler is a college girl working two jobs and falling asleep in class.
When she meets Rider at her best friend’s bachelorette, she never guesses the
tattooed bad boy will offer to hire her as his practice sub, but he shows up at
her job the next day to do just that. However, Rider isn’t who he claims to be,
and when Christy discovers his secrets and betrayal it may be enough to make
her flee from this biker dom’s arms.

Excerpt: 
“I dare you to pinch his butt.” Jeanie points to the nearly
bare derriere of one stripper who’s sashaying in front of the bride-to-be, my
best friend Felicia.



I nearly choke on my appletini. “No. You know my rule.”



She rolls her eyes at me, flutters her fake glittery lashes. “Yes, no more bad
boys. Why can’t you just drink from the fountain without wanting to marry it?”



I blink at her odd, homemade idiom. “Look, some people can have one night
stands and some can’t. I’m not a prude--”



“You just fall in love too fast.” She shakes her blonde wigged head at me.
“Girl, you’d have a lot more fun if your heart wasn’t tucked between your
knees.”



With that, she struts off toward the stripper sticking his thong clad naughty
bits in Felicia’s face. I shake my head and watch them, wishing I could be more
like Jeanie and Felicia, wishing I’d chickened out on this bachelorette and
stayed at home with my cat and a book.



“But it’ll be fun!” Felicia had crowed when I tried to back out of her party.
“And you’re one of my bridesmaids, so you have to be there.”



Felicia and Ron are getting married soon, and they’ve decided that for their
bachelor and bachelorette parties they get one last fling. So strippers were
hired and Ron pulled some strings to rent Felicia and her friends this room
that’s a part of some sex club. Sex club! Can you believe it? Some place called
Surrender Inc. apparently owns it, or so Felicia tells me.



Just great. Here I am tucked in a sex club with ample writhing, muscled male
flesh and I’ve sworn off bad boys for good. Of course, a sex club is crawling
with just that!



I glance up from where I sit wedged between Mary and Eve, two more college
buddies who are in my historical law class. And wouldn’t you know it. One of
the strippers is headed right for me, hips gyrating and penis edging closer to
my face. I try to get up, but Mary and Eve hold me in place.



“The lady over there says you need a lap dance,” the towering brunette beefcake
tells me.

delights has kidnapped Sasha and is trying to take Surrender down. Now Ophelia,
a college girl who likes her world controlled, must work with Damien Walters, a
man she hates, and take major risks to save her sibling. But when it’s all

Excerpt: 
My cell
phone chirps, ripping me from a dream where I was doing naughty things with a
beefcake on a beach. Who the hell is that at 4 am? I think, after I peer at the
clock with one eye open. It can’t be Terry, my best friend and lab partner for
my biological anthropology course. She said she was going camping this weekend
with her boyfriend Jeremy and she wasn’t taking her cell phone. Gran never
calls this early, because with her lifestyle (she’s a Madame who owns a saloon
style brothel) she’s lucky to be home at this time.



“Hello?” I mumble into the speaker after my second attempt to hit the TALK
button is successful.



“Can’t talk long.”



“Who is this?” It takes me a few seconds to recognize the whisper rasp that
belongs to my sister. We haven’t talked in over a year.



“Opie, it’s me.” The use of my much hated nickname confirms the speaker is
Sasha. “Need you to call Damien. I’ve been kidnapped.”



This jolts me awake and makes me sit up straight in bed. “Kidnapped? Sasha,
where are you? If this is a joke, you and Damien are shitheads. And I will get
even.”



“No joke. I need your help. I think he’s going to kill--”



Then the line goes dead and the insistent drone of a dial tone taunts me. I hit
END and throw the phone down as worry and anger speed up my breathing and my
heart.

Excerpt:
 “Maya, could you come here?”



My brother’s voice sends a shiver of anxiety through my stomach. I know he’s
trying to sound calm, but something is wrong. I dash off the couch and head
into his kitchen. There I find him gripping the counter, blinking hard. His
face is tense and he’s disoriented.



“What’s wrong?” I go to Xander and put an arm around his shoulder.



He gives me a quick smile that fails at covering his fear. “I … umm … I can’t
see.”



My heart knocks harder in my chest. “Let’s get you to the couch.”



I help him walk the short distance from the counter into the living room, then
help him ease down on the sofa. Sweat beads his brow and worry ages him.



One month ago, my brother was diagnosed with relapsing remitting multiple
sclerosis. It’s the most common form of the disease, and it involves relapses,
or attacks, where his neurological function worsens. These are followed by
stages of remission, where the disease seems to almost melt away. But then a
new attack occurs. They figure Xander’s had it for about ten years now, but
because he’s one tough bastard, plowing through most of his pain and hiding it,
the doctor’s only recently discovered he had MS. That and the disease is
difficult to diagnose. The diagnosis came after my brother went temporarily
blind while driving. A scary episode for him, his wife, and their two year old.



“That’s it, Xander,” I say, peaking at Josh’s playpen to make sure he’s still
asleep. “I’m getting a second job and moving in here with you and Patty.”





Surrender
To His Demands: Surrender Series Volume 6

Man love inside Surrender Inc.



Surrender To His Demands is Volume 6 of the Surrender Series, which continues

Surrender Inc. board member Dmitri Nichvalodov. A member of Surrender himself,
Nikolai has a proposition for Chad that will help him keep his ex off his back,
but the down on his luck tattooist just might lose his heart in the process.

Excerpt: 
We
arrive at the Hermes Theater at 8 pm and take our seats in the orchestra area.
The theater has been recently restored, and cherubs blowing horns adorn the
ceiling. The beige walls are trimmed with gold, and deep burgundy curtains
drape the black stage. Balcony seats draped in similar deep red jut out from
either side of the stage, looming high above it.



The lights go down and Laura grabs my hand, gives it a squeeze and gives me a
wide smile. I return it, but I’m not expecting much. Maybe it’s just my bad
mood lingering from the crappy news Isaac’s note delivered. Truth is, I’ve
never been big on magicians. Sure I’m seen Damien Lane and Rick Seraphim, the
two big ones out there these days, and their tricks are impressive. But I can
be a hardcore cynic and I’m not easily impressed. From what I’ve heard about
Niko, he’s a magician past his time and on his way out. If it weren’t for his
family’s connections, he’d probably be forgotten by now.



A disco ball spins above the stage after the curtains part. The lights dim and
ominous music plays to get us in the mood. I glance around, finding the place
is packed. So maybe Niko isn’t as washed up as I think, or maybe his family
pays people off to come see the shows.



Stop being a jerk, I scold myself. After all, the ticket was a gift from Laura and
I shouldn’t be so ungrateful. So I focus forward and try to enjoy the show.



After some flash and pageantry during the opening, Niko gets to the tricks. He
does a couple with cards to warm up and get the show rolling, then does a few
impressive sleight of hand illusions. Next his assistant, a pretty brunette
dressed in a sparkling blue mini, wheels out a box and places it at the center
of the stage.



Niko is an intimidating and strikingly handsome man. I’ve only seen his photos
on a few occasions, when the local papers have covered his shows. He’s tall and
barrel-chested and walks straight and proud as he performs. He wears a trimmed,
black beard that accentuates his pale skin and icy blue eyes. Now he turns to
the audience in his tuxedo and begins to open panels on the box that sits atop
a table.



“You will note there are no tricks, no secret compartments.” His voice booms
out as he speaks to the crowd. He raps the top of the box with a massive fist.
“Once the lovely Jemma is inside, she has no way of getting out. No hidden
escapes.”



Another man also clad in a tuxedo brings out a buzz saw as Jemma, Niko’s
assistant, climbs inside the apparatus.



“Now, ladies and gentleman,” he says, sweeping his arms wide. “I will saw Jemma
into three pieces right before your eyes.”



I can’t help rolling my eyes. This trick is as old as god, if I believed in
one. Thankfully Laura doesn’t notice my disdain.



But, somehow, Niko does. Those icy blue eyes focus on me and he calls out,
“Excuse me, sir. Do you doubt my claim?”



The spotlight pins me and my eyes go wide. I hate being singled out, and my
anger gets the best of me. “Not saying you can’t do it. I just think the trick
is a little dated.”



Niko arches an eyebrow. “Perhaps you’d be more impressed if you came up here
and watched?”





Surrender
To His Pleasure: Surrender Series Volume 7

Surrender To His Pleasure is volume 7 of the Surrender
Series, which continues the story of Surrender Inc., an exclusive BDSM pleasure
resort / club franchise where the elite go to play. This is a M/F/M BDSM
romance with a scorching heat level. Also includes a bonus story from guest
author 
Louise Bohmer and
bonus excerpt from an upcoming new Wild & Lawless series, Bad Boys

club. Now employed as a bouncer at Claim Me, Nash came here to get Fiona off
his mind. Now she’s back in his life, he can’t get her out of it.

works at Claim Me.



Nash wants a second chance, but Fiona wants him to prove he’s a changed man.
Can he accept he’ll have to share the woman he loves with another if he wants
her back?

Excerpt:  
“And then she said ‘Your dress is too short, honey,” the
little blonde at his side chirped. “Can you believe it? Who is she to tell me
whether my dress is too short or not…”



Her words melted into the blur of voices surrounding him. At one time, Nash
would’ve already sweet talked her phone number out of her. She was cute, even
if she was a chronic chirper. Instead he just let the woman yammer on about
whatever and gave a noncommittal “Umm hmm,” when he thought he should. His mind
wasn’t on getting laid tonight. Hadn’t been on it in a while. Not since Fiona
walked out of his life six months ago.



Sure, there had been women. There had been sex. But every partner he took to
his bed wore her face. His ex-wife was determined to haunt him to his
grave.



His brother Thomas appeared in the crowd and moved swiftly toward him. Just as
the little blonde wrapped a hand around his bicep, Thomas stopped in front of
him.



“You busy?” Thomas’ gaze darted from Nash to the blonde.



“Nah, what do you need?” Nash stood up and the little blonde pouted. He
murmured, “Sorry, honey,” to the tiny chirper and then focused on his
brother/boss.



“Got a situation in one of the private rooms.” He pointed a thumb toward the
balcony that wrapped around the second floor of the club. “I need some muscle
to back me up.”



Nash called to Bernie, who was deep in conversation with a curvy brunette near
the bar. “Take over for me.”



Bernie nodded and left the lady to take up Nash’s post. The little blonde
brightened when the tall, well-muscled Scandinavian took the stool Nash just
vacated. She reached up and rubbed Bernie’s bald head and snuggled close.



Nash followed his brother through the crowd toward the wrought iron, spiral
staircase that led to the private rooms. He’d worked as a bouncer at Claim Me,
a Surrender Inc. BDSM club, for a few months now. His brother bought the place
to add to his list of investments. Thomas mainly earned his money in
casinos—something Nash teased him about, saying this made him a walking clich√©:
an aboriginal who acquired his wealth through a string of gambling joints. But
now he was moving into the domination and submission trade with this place.
Then main floor was a night club, complete with a bar, dance floor, booming hip
hop, and bodies writhing. Scattered through it were faux rooms with glass walls
through which patrons could watch BDSM scenes. A femdom flogging her
submissive. A towering Dom spanking his mistress. Whatever your pleasure, Claim
Me had it. But the real action happened in the private rooms upstairs.



Thomas led him to Room 9 and stopped before he turned the knob. “The woman’s
got a gun. She’s holding one of my best switches and her client hostage. We
have to be careful.”



Nash frowned. “I thought you said you screened everyone thoroughly. How the
hell did this shit get in?”



Thomas sighed. “The guy lied. Told us his divorce was final. Said his wife
wasn’t cool with spanking him, so he had to get it elsewhere. Everything
checked out. Anyway… See for yourself.”



Thomas opened the door and the screeching started.



“Get out! This is between me and them.” A pretty woman in tight jeans and a
leather jacket whirled toward them, pointing a pistol right at Nash’s waist. At
six foot seven, the woman would have to look up and aim higher to get his
chest.



“Ma’am, put the gun down.” Thomas took another step into the room. “We can all
talk about this in my office.”



When Nash’s gaze swept to the pair she was holding hostage, his stomach
tightened and his heart squeezed in his chest, but he didn’t show it. Instead
he stared at his ex-wife, Fiona, and she stared back with a riding crop poised.
