Contemporary BDSM Duology
Exiled by Maya Banks
Enticed to the island paradise where an enigmatic prince is living in exile, beautiful, virginal Talia is introduced to a world of forbidden pleasure where the prince’s every whim is fulfilled and her fantasies are rendered in exquisite detail. But when the prince is summoned back to fulfill his duty to his struggling country, reality is thrust upon Talia all too soon. She returns home, heartbroken, convinced she was a passing fancy for an idle ruler and his most trusted men. Until the day they arrive on her doorstep, determined to have her back where she belongs.
Sway by Lauren Dane. Book 1 of the Delicious series
Taken from Ms Dane’s website – SWAY will be in the CHERISHED Duology with me and Maya Banks – both our books will have a contemporary BDSM theme. It’s also the start to my DELICIOUS series, the spin off from The Brown Siblings books.
Levi Warner is an established, older man—wealthy, powerful, and above all, respectable. Then Levi meets Daisy, an uninhibited 24-year-old dance instructor and artist, not exactly the kind of woman Levi is accustomed to. But the young, free spirit, brings out something in him he only experienced in fantasies. When their scorching affair turns into something unexpectedly deeper, Levi finds himself torn between preserving his reputation, and exploring a wilder and much more satisfying kind of life.
I have never read anything by Maya before and I honestly don’t know why. I loved everything about Exiled. Ok maybe not all of it, there were some parts that where a little far fetched, but overall it was very enjoyable.
Sway by Lauren Dane (Delicious 1)
Come to think of it, I have never read anything by Lauren Dane either. If it’s possible I love ‘sway’ more than ‘exiled’. I felt more connected it this story then the previous one. It felt more real to me. The characters were lively, great story line and plot. The hero was a real man and the heroine had a nice sassy vibe.
Overall I managed to discover two new great authors that I will be reading more from.
