It's the only way he knows how to be. There's never been a question in his mind about what he wants. Lucy may accept all that he demands, but his true nature could get in the way of their happy-ever-after. "GIVE OR TAKE" Lucy is head-over-heels in love, but she's starting to figure out that this relationship may demand more than just the surrender of her heart to make it work. With a man as dominant as Max, nothing less than her absolute submission will suffice. She may not be ready for "True Beginnings."

This series involves a combination of Domestic Discipline, D/s, and Sm "Excerpts: " Max has been more attentive than any other guy I've dated. He notices everything, keeps an eye on me at all times when we're together, and always does little things to show me how special I am to him. But his attentiveness also means he has a lot of these pet-peeves. A long list of things he does or doesn't want me to do. I don't have to guess how to make him happy. He tells, shows me. And I have surprised myself with how much I like it this way. He's in control. I've wanted to please him from the beginning. I've wanted to follow his little rules and old-fashion-ness to show him how much he means to me. I've been proud of being able to do every little thing he's asked. Since he slapped me, though, there's also been this element of fear of not pleasing him. And the depth of my response to that has been the hardest for me to understand. Just looking at the darkened look he still wears now... I know that I can give into these feelings...that I'm safe...to be turned on by his anger, his control. ..... I put my hand in her hair, give a slight tug, but mostly rub her softness. She's so small, so soft, so yielding. "I like hurting you, Lucy." She rubs her head against my hand, the obedient puppy. "I like that you give yourself to me completely. That I can cause you pain and fear...I can make you my good girl again with my belt or my hand..." I lower my hand to her butt. Still a little warm, the pinkness not quite faded. I pinch her lower cheek, not hard, but it's still tender enough to squeeze the breath out of her. "That's what punishment does...it makes you my good girl again. You want that, don't you?" "Yes, Sir!" Her whole body answers, trying to sway closer to me, but not moving from her spot, arms still held tight against her back.

It is 1704 when Genevieve Gaillain and her sister board a French ship headed for the Louisiana colony as mail-order brides. Both have promised to marry one of the rough-and-tumble Canadian men in this New World in order to escape religious persecution in the Old World. Genevieve knows life won't be easy, but at least here she can establish a home and family without fear of beheading. But when she falls in love with Tristan Lanier, an expatriate cartographer whose courageous stand for fair treatment of native peoples has made him decidedly unpopular in the young colony, Genevieve realizes that even in this land of liberty one is not guaranteed peace. And a secret she harbors could mean the undoing of the colony itself. Gulf Coast native Beth White brings vividly to life the hot, sultry south in this luscious, layered story of the lengths we must go to in order to be true to ourselves, our faith, and our deepest loves.

BLOOD BOUND What readers are saying about Blood Roses 'Blood Roses was an awesome continuation of the Blackthorn series. Not only are Pryor’s characters and fathomlessly dark love stories fabulous, but her continual world building of Blackthorn blows me away. Blood Roses is a highly recommended read! Gravetells.com ‘It pulls no punches, its heroes are on the edge, and its sex scenes are off the charts.' Thedemonlibrarian.com ‘I felt as much a part of the emotional rollercoaster the characters themselves. Needless to say, I devoured the book in a single sitting! After reading the first two books of the Blackthorn series I am definitely on the Lindsay Pryor fan bandwagon!’ VampireRomanceBooks.com ‘This is a deliciously dark book. This isn't your typical happily ever after story, and I think that's what drew me to the series in the first place. This is the second book I've read, and I honestly think it's better than the first.’ RomFan Reviews
