Kally portrait IMG_4937 croppedJen:  It’s the final day of our look into BDSM novels and today’s guest is Kallypso Masters.  Kally, will you share a short bio with us?
Kally: Kallypso Masters writes emotional, realistic Romance novels with dominant males (for the most part) and the strong women who can bring them to their knees. She also has brought many readers to their knees-having them experience the stories right along with her characters in the Rescue Me Saga. Kally knows that Happily Ever After takes maintenance, so her couples don’t solve all their problems and disappear at “the end” of their Romance, but will continue to work on real problems in their relationships in later books in the saga.

Kally has been writing full-time since May 2011, having quit her “day job” the month before. (After writing as a “hobby” for 30 years, it was the only job she thought she might be good at and needed to be successful at something fast or go in search of another day job.) She lives in rural Kentucky and has been married for 30 years to the man who provided her own Happily Ever After. They have two adult children, one adorable grandson, and a rescued dog.

Kally enjoys meeting readers at national romance-novel conventions, book signings, and informal gatherings (restaurants, airports, bookstores, wherever!), as well as in online groups (including Facebook’s “The Rescue Me Saga Discussion Group”).  Kally also visits the Fetlife “Rescue Me! discussion group” on occasion, but since she works one-on-one with her BDSM experts now, she doesn’t have to go on FetLife as often as she once did). She hopes to meet you in her future travels whether virtually or in-person! If you meet her face to face, be sure to ask for a Kally’s friend button!

To join the secret Facebook group Rescue Me Saga Discussion Group, please send a friend request to Karla Paxton (https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100004338888051&fref=ts) and she will open the door for you. Must be 18 to join.

They both need to blow off some steam…

Lilith Yee is Madame Tease, except she hasn’t been doing much teasing lately. Alex has left her in charge, which means there isn’t time for fun. On top of paperwork and making sure Twisted Rope is still performing on Friday, she’s bored.

Joseph Hall is the lead singer of the Twisted Rope. On the last leg of their tour, he has the weight of the world on his shoulders. He’s kept a secret from his bandmates, one that is slowly killing him inside. He’s more than willing to put the decisions in someone’s hand.

One night. No promises. Could it end up being the perfect beginning?

Bloodlust Denied by Christina Phillips
Release Date: June 7, 2013
Publisher: Ellora’s Cave
Pages: 124
Source: book provided by publisher for review

 

 

Tired of the thin-blooded aristocrats in 1815 London, Alexius yearns for better sport. He is drawn to a dark-haired seductress who shows no fear and refuses to obey his commands. Entranced by such novelty, he denies his bloodlust and decides to keep her to warm his bed.

Immortal vampire hunter Morana has never mistaken her prey before, but the dark stranger mesmerizes her, enticing her to forget everything but the dangerous pleasure she finds in his arms.

Neither one can deny the pull of the other, but there is something beyond the lust—a recognition neither can put a name to. The past and present collide and unless they discover the truth behind the lies, Death will triumph once more.

Seth has always seen himself as the perpetual screwup and Kaden as the strong and steady one, so his friend’s request rocks his world. He also knows there’s no way he can refuse Kaden this.

Now Seth finds himself immersed in a role he’s far from comfortable with–inflicting physical pain to provide emotional comfort to the woman he’s secretly loved for years. Can he deal with his crushing grief over the impending loss of his oldest friend and still learn the skills he must master in time to become The Reluctant Dom?
