My latest in the Leather and Pleasure series, Taming Julian, was finally released a couple of weeks ago and I'm looking for reviews.
I've got three copies to giveaway to a few lucky commenters, if you wouldn't mind leaving a review on Amazon, GoodReads, & any other site you can think of. Interested? *grins* Just leave a comment with your email address'.
Here's more about the novella;
Rachel Hanson learned the hard way that love is not always what it’s cracked up to be. She’s more of a love em’ and leave em’ type and doesn’t have plans to change that status anytime soon. That is until she meets Julian and that makes her nervous.
Julian Banks is a notorious ladies man and likes to have a good time. So when he starts a new job at the ever popular Leather and Pleasure club as a bouncer, he never imagined he’d meet the woman of his dreams let alone on the first night.
Past hurts drive Rachel away, and during the four years since, he’s finally realized that it’s time to settle down and the only woman he wants is her. But, can he convince Rachel of the same or will she run again?

It was the night before his first shift on the job. Rhys had just given him the low down about company policy and what was expected, not acceptable, and yadda, yadda yadda… It was his job to be the muscle, working security inside the club, one of many to keep watch and make sure there wasn’t any trouble when he spotted her getting a drink at the bar. Her red hair fell loose almost covering her ass, and instantly his cock hardened just picturing what he could do with it. He could bend her over the bar and sheath himself deep inside her soft welcoming pussy, using those locks to hold her in place, pulling a little to expose her neck and taste her salty and albeit sweet skin. And, those breasts…hot damn! She wore a black corset that exposed them to everyone’s view. They were just enough to fill his big hands. She had a curvy middle, narrow waist, and eyes he could get lost in. Yep, right then and there he knew he had to at the very least get to know her name. Red would be his one day from that first moment, he just knew. The possibilities were endless; this was a sex club after all.
“Can I buy your next round, Red?” Julian casually leaned against the bar beside her and smiled.
“Red, huh?” Her eyebrow went up before she took a sip of her drink, and openly checked him out. Julian loved it.
“Yeah,” he reached over feeling a little more confident, and slipped a strand between his fingers before continuing. “Since I don’t know your actual name yet, I’m going with Red.”
“I think I like you already.” Her lips twitched as if she fought a smile, and she extended her hand. “The name is Rachel, Rachel Hanson, and you are?”
“Julian Banks, at your service.”
“Are you now? Well, it looks like this might be your lucky night, Julian. I came here solo tonight looking for a good time.”
“Well if it’s a good time you’re looking for, it wouldn’t be a hardship for me to fill those shoes…” Rachel put her finger on top of his lips to stop him right there and interrupted.
“I’m sure you’d be great, but the thing is I’m the kind of girl who likes to call the shots and I have a feeling you’re the type of man who also enjoys that position. Do you see the problem that might cause?
Julian took a moment to look around the bar before meeting her gaze again and just when he was about to convince her he was game for anything, she began to leave. “Wait,” He reached out for her arm to halt her and she eyed it strangely until he let her go. “I can be anything you want me to be. Please don’t go.”
“Really?” She slapped him across the face and his cock suddenly began to deflate, and a muscle in his jaw twitched in aggravation.“Then the first lesson you need to learn when talking to your Dominant is that you never maintain eye contact when speaking or being spoken to, unless directed otherwise.”
Julian immediately diverted his gaze, and began to wonder if it was worth it after all. She actually slapped me in the fucking face…WTF! But then she pressed her body flush against his, blew on the hand print indented in his left cheek and licked her way up his face to his earlobe. She nipped on it, and her warm breath against his ear made him shiver.
“Number two: I’m normally addressed as Mistress or Madam, but I kind of like “Red” so you will continue to address me so.” She leaned back with a twinkle in her eye. “Number three: I need you willing and ready to trust me to meet your every need without question. Think you can handle that?”
Julian gulped and kept his gaze locked on her sexy boots, finally nodding his consent. “Teach me, Red.” Next thing he knew she fisted the front of his shirt and dragged him into a private room where spanking, restraints, and sexual limits were tested. Rachel taught him all right, and she’d given him the best sex of his life. Much to both of their surprises, when she showed up a week later she hadn’t been expecting to see him again, and he hadn’t expected to see her playing the role of submissive when she’d been his dominant the week before.
A fucking switch, and as sick as it may sound, it turned him on even more to think about playing either role for that woman. What sucked like shit was that she seemed spooked once their first night ended and it took him forever to get past her barriers to get to the friendship they had today. He intended to find out why, and intended to push those barriers a little further because where Rachel Hanson was concerned, he wanted it all.
I hope you all enjoyed the Taming Julian (Leather and Pleasure 6) teaser, and I'll look forward to your feedback.
