Review...Master Delacroix

Another great review from Literary Nymphs..:)

Nathan is a former FBI agent, now semi-retired, and owns a BDSM club.  Connelly calls on Nathan for help with research for the villain in her latest novel, unaware they have something in common, which is the man that killed her husband and his fiancé.

Master Delacroix is the second book in the Crime & Punishment series.  Readers should be aware that the first book in this series is published by a different publisher and this book can be read alone. 

Nathan has a talent that also was, in part, the reason his fiancé was targeted by a serial killer.  The fact that Nathan gets impressions and sometimes thoughts from other people also caused friction with him and his father.  He used it as an agent, but now uses it as a Dom with his subs.

Connelly is surprised at how well Nathan understands her, but Nathan is confused as he can clearly read her thoughts.  As he helps her get more comfortable with wanting to know more about the BDSM lifestyle, Nathan also sets up a scene with his brother and his former partner for Connelly to experience something she wanted to try.  The scenes between Nathan and Connelly are hot and they discover that Connelly is a masochist to his sadist.

The intrigue woven into Master Delacroix is expertly dispersed into the love story between Nathan and Connelly. In addition, the relationships that they have with several secondary characters have an influence on how the story progresses.  There were several surprises throughout the story, but those that are familiar with the BDSM lifestyle will find lots of humorous interactions that result with Connelly’s introduction to BDSM. 

Ms. Michaels has a good grasp of the BDSM lifestyle and this is a good one for the bookshelf.  I will be reading this one again.

Review....Master Delacroix

A great review for Master Delacroix from Victoria from Hearts on Fire.

Nathan Delacroix is skilled BDSM Master who is also psychic that helps the FBI solve certain types of cases. He does not want anyone to know he is psychic that does not have to know. Nathan is likeable man and Dom. He is a kind and thoughtful man who will do what is necessary to protect and help those around him. He meets his favorite thriller author only to find out that she is not who he expected.
Connelly James is an author of thriller novels who writes under the name of James Connelly to be taken more serious. She schedules a visit with a BDSM Master to do research for her newest novel. At first neither knew of the deeper connection between the two. Connelly is attracted to Nathan right from the first meeting.
The chemistry between Connelly and Nathan is blistering. I loved how well they got along outside the bedroom, while Nathan’s abilities did help him. I think that even if he did not have them there would have been a great connection. The sex scenes were blistering. I loved how willing Nathan was to let Connelly experience what she wanted even if it was only once.
Master Delacroix is the second book in the Crime and Punishment series by Trista Ann Michaels. While this book is part of a series, it can be read and enjoyed as a standalone with ease. I found this book very well written. The main and secondary characters were both interesting and realistic. Ms. Michaels did a wonderful job of drawing the reader into the novel and keeping them entertained and on their toes all the way through. This book was fantastic! I really hope the next book is about Nathan’s brother, Daniel.

Topping the Domme review...

4 stars from Chris of Night Owl Reviews...

Topping the Domme

Crime and Punishment, #1

This was a dark and dirty read that isn't for the faint of heart. Karina and Brayden are co-workers with the same kink; domination. When a murderer starts targeting submissives they are the natural ones tagged for the case. Multiple problems arise including the latest victim was Karina's friend and that to catch the killer Karina must play the submissive. Added internal drama ensues when Karina discovers she LIKES being a submissive more than playing the domme. And we find out she may be connected to the killer in relation to an incident in her past. Yikes!

Brayden was a treat and I envisioned him as totally yummy. He handled Karina with confidence and empathy and always in the right doses. Karina was a woman in a man's world and she didn't hide her femininity to do it. These two were flammable from the beginning and I find it hard to believe they didn't connect before this case, but that is covered (sort of) in the progression of the book.

The author had me guessing all through the book and I never did ferret out the killer before the big reveal. The descriptions of the murders was pretty graphic and frankly bothered me; I don't want to believe another human would do that to someone on purpose. This was a real good read, with a lot of D/s play and just plain sex. And we are introduced to Master Delacroix, who I look forward to reading his story real soon. An entertaining read.

Review for Master Delacroix...

4 Stars from Chris at Night Owl Reviews...

Master Delacroix

Crime and Punishment, #2

Master Nathan Delacroix was introduced in the first book and he piqued my interest then. This one is all him, and the added thrill of his brother; identical twin Daniel. This story can be read alone, but I enjoyed my introduction in the first book as well as that book itself, so don't cheat yourself.
Nathan is unique in many ways, and his talents are utilized by the FBI even though he is no longer in their employ. These talents have been both a curse and a blessing - saving lives and ruining them. As a result Nathan is off-limits emotionally and will take just the sex (thank you) when it comes to being with a woman. That is until Connelly. She pushes all his buttons and while he fights the attraction, he realizes he's fighting a losing battle.

Connelly too has been damaged by life and thrown around a bit by bad luck and circumstances. She's in a good place now, if a little lonely. Well, that's about to change and the old saying "be careful what you wish for" certainly applies. It was just supposed to be research but the feelings Nathan and the BDSM lifestyle raise in her have a profound affect on Connelly. With all the dangers inherent in a relationship, can she deal with the added dimension Nathan's gift adds?

I see many more potential stories in this series and look forward to them. As always, the author delivers a steamy read that can be a little dark and deep at times. I always enjoy her imagination and subsequent story telling when I start a new tale of hers.

Spanking excerpt...Finding Her Fantasy...

Oh, someone's in trouble.. Excerpt from Finding Her Fantasy, available August 4th..:)

Melinda didn’t have to wait long to find out just what she was in for. Why had she made that comment about not waiting on them hand and foot?
She stared at Erik, her mouth hanging open. “You can’t be serious.”
Erik dropped into the wicker chair and frowned up at her. The warm breeze ruffled his hair, giving him a boyish appearance that contrasted with the dangerous glint in his blue eyes.
“I’m dead serious, Melinda,” he growled.
“I wouldn’t push him if I were you, Mel,” Jon drawled. “You basically issued a challenge at the coffee shop earlier, and now he plans to make you do exactly what you said you wouldn’t.”
“It’s one thing to be a Dom when it comes to sex, but I’m not your damn maid, and I’m damn sure not going to hand-feed you. If you want a bowl of fruit, get up and fix it yourself.”
Jon’s lips twitched, but Erik’s eyes narrowed into hard slits. “Excuse me?”
She put her hands on her hips and bent closer, so he could hear her more clearly. “I said no.”
Erik stood up so fast the chair scooted across the terra-cotta tile that covered the upper veranda. Melinda’s back went straight as a rod, and her chin tilted defiantly in the air.
I have a safe word. I have a safe word. What the hell is my safe word?
“Damn that’s hot as hell,” Jon murmured off to the side, but Melinda ignored him.
Her eyes were on Erik’s intense, angry blue ones as he stared down his nose at her, sending dark currents of need across every inch of her flesh. God, what the hell was the matter with her?
“I was going to let the clothes slide this evening, but I believe I’ve changed my mind. Strip, Melinda. Now.”
Melinda’s mouth dropped open, and then she quickly clamped it shut. Damn bossy prick. Fine. It wasn’t like she hadn’t been naked around here anyway. She could handle a strip tease.
Keeping her gaze glued to his, she slowly began to unbutton her blouse. Erik’s eyes flickered to her chest before coming back to rest on her face. The blue of his eyes sparked with heat, making her entire body burn. Wow, she loved it when he looked at her like that.
She lowered her blouse and let it fall to the floor. She reached behind her and unclasped her bra, letting it join her top on the tile. Her breasts felt heavy and ached for his touch, but he kept his hands down by his hips. She glanced down and noticed how he balled his hands into fists as though trying not to touch her.
She brought her gaze back to his as she unzipped her shorts and removed them along with her underwear. She now stood before him naked, heated, and so totally aroused she could hardly stand it. What was it about his stare that could melt her like butter on a hot day?
He tilted his head toward the large table where they usually ate their meals. “Now go grip the edge of the table and bend over so I have a good view of that pretty ass.”
She licked her lips nervously. Was this going to be some sort of punishment for saying no? She walked over and gripped the edge of the table. Arching her back slightly, she bent forward. Her stare caught Jon’s and a prickle of apprehension traveled up her spine.
“You should’ve just fed him the strawberries, love,” he murmured softly, but Melinda didn’t miss the spark of amusement in his gaze.
She started to glance over her shoulder, but the sting that landed across the back of her upper thigh caught her by surprise and made her gasp. Melinda looked quickly over her shoulder and was rewarded with another slap to her ass. She squealed and glared at Jon, who stood on the other side of the table watching with eyes that glowed with lust. The desire she saw blazing in the depths of his gaze made her shiver.
“I like how her breasts jiggle when you slap her with the flogger,” Jon said as he met her gaze and smiled just a bit, just enough to leave her wary.
He had a devilish glint in his eyes that made her nervous. She tried to glance behind her again. “Where the hell did you get a flogger?”
“Face forward,” Erik commanded and punctuated his words with another slap of the flogger.
The leather straps caressed her flesh with a harsh sting that caused heat to bloom under her skin. Melinda tightened her fingers on the edge of the table and felt the heat of a flush move over her face. Despite the sting, despite the harsh slap of the leather, her pussy began to throb, and her nipples tingle.
She should use her safe word. She should shout it at the top of her lungs and walk away from this madness. She should. But she didn’t want to. She realized it the second he slapped her ass for the fourth time and a sound similar to a moan escaped her lips.
Jon’s eyebrow shot up. “Well, well,” he drawled.
Melinda bit her lip in embarrassment. The flogger landed on the table next to her, and she stared at it in surprise before turning to look at Erik warily.
“It does no good to punish you if you enjoy it,” he snarled.
“I didn’t,” she snarled back at him.
Erik walked up behind her and slid his hand between her legs. Melinda gasped and attempted to jerk away, but Erik grabbed her hips and snapped, “Be still.”
Melinda froze. Shock worked its way through her system at how quickly, and without thought, she just did what he said. His fingers slid through the damp folds of her pussy, and she bit her tongue to keep from moaning again at his touch.
“If you didn’t enjoy it, then why are you so wet?” he purred as his fingers circled her opening.
Even as embarrassment heated her cheeks, her hips moved in time with his touch. When she pushed back, trying to get him to slide his fingers inside her, he pulled away. She gasped at the loss of his warmth as he moved to pick up the flogger.
Her heart raced with anticipation. She should be ashamed of herself. She should be shocked. She should be afraid, but instead she felt only excitement. Was it the flogger, or was it Erik that had her so tense and needy?
“I think I know exactly how to punish you,” he murmured.
“How’s that?” Jon asked with interest.
“Flog her and not let her come.”
Melinda’s eyes went wide. “What?”
“No orgasm,” Erik said.
“But—”
“Come and there’ll be hell to pay. Am I clear?”
Okay, now she was scared. Was he serious? How the hell was she supposed to keep herself from coming?
“Melinda,” he snarled so fiercely, she trembled. “Am I clear?”
“As crystal,” she snapped.
His hand landed across her ass so hard she screamed, “Ow!”
“That’s not what I wanted to hear.”
“Obviously,” she replied sarcastically and then winced just before his hand landed across her ass again.
Oh God, why did I say that?
“I’m sorry,” she rushed to say. “Master. Yes, Master. You were clear.”
She started to add, Are you happy?, but smartly held her tongue.
“Better,” he murmured.

Review...Master Delacroix

Great review for Master Delacroix from Leigh at Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews.

Thanks, Leigh!

Nathan Delacroix is a surprised when his favorite author comes to him for a BDSM perspective on her newest book. Not only is she a woman, but he finds himself growing more and more attracted to her and the unexplainable connection he feels. Toss in a serial killer, psychic abilities, a secret masochist, a twin brother, an FBI agent, a little foursome action between them all and a lot of hot hot kinky sex and you have Master Delacroix.
I know I’ve found a new author and a new series to get into when I’m not even finished the book, but have to put it down so I can go purchase more of what she’s written. This was the case with Ms. Michaels and Master Delacroix. As the second book in the series, I was reluctant to start reading this without having read the story that came before it (Topping the Domme). But this really was a stand alone book, and I had no trouble getting into the storyline or the characters. And I loved these characters!
As a Dom with the ability to sense other people’s emotions and thoughts, Nathan is literally the perfect Dom. Knowing what people are thinking even before they realize it themselves, he is able to give his sub exactly what she wants. He is dominant and self assured, and in Connely James, he finds a woman who is starting to explore her interest in BDSM and can’t hide her sarcastic and conflicted thoughts from him.
The two of them together are a likeable couple and the sex is sizzling and kinky and oh-so-yummy. The writing was so easy to get into and I found that I had trouble putting the book down. The underlying story wasn’t much of a nail-biter, but rather provided a background for the relationship between Nathan and Connely to develop, and (I hope!) set the stage for stories about Nathan’s brother Daniel and FBI agent Josh.
If you’re looking for a hot, kinky, crazy-sexy and can’t-put-it-down read, this is definitely it!
