Guest Post & Giveaway: Master’s Flame by Annabel Joseph

Masters Flame 900x1350

Amazon Kindle  Barnes and Noble Nook    All Romance Ebooks

Add to Goodreads

In the sexually charged world of Cirque du Monde, CEO Michel Lemaitre reigns as king of depravity. He’s a stringent, brutal Master who selects his slaves based on their ability to cope with strict handling and pain. He exerts rigid control over his chosen partners and they submit to him in all things—that is, until fiery Italian acrobat Valentina Sancia enters his life.

Valentina’s known as La Vampa, the flame of Napoli, and her tempestuous personality and wild libido soar as high as her circus tricks. To his chagrin, she wants nothing more than to be his slave. Michel finds himself drawn to the red-headed firebrand even as he tries his hardest to resist her. It doesn’t help that the sensual beauty idolizes him and tempts him at every turn. He finally engages her in a one-month, no-holds-barred Master-slave relationship to prove their incompatibility.

And that’s when the circus really begins.

The two become wrapped up in bondage, cages, physical ordeals…and an emotionally fraught battle of wills. He’s never had a slave burn so bright, and Valentina’s heart is set on pleasing her Master, no matter the torment and trials she must endure. Is there such a thing as too much passion? Michel’s convinced there is, and he’s determined to tame a billowing love on the verge of blazing out of control.

Annabel Joseph is at Dark Diva Reviews today to tell us about her new BDSM romance, Master’s Flame, and also to share some…ahem…inspiring examples of real life circus artistry. Prepare your eyeballs for some artistic brain candy, and be sure to check out the Master’s Flame excerpt below!

Hello readers! If you’ve been keeping up with my Cirque Masters series, then you know I draw a lot of erotic inspiration from Cirque performers and other talented folks. The entire series was inspired by an aerial silk act I saw that incorporated some very bondage-oriented sequences. Ooh-la-la. I thought I’d share four of my other favorite sexy and sensual circus acts:

The Amaluna Water Bowl – Amaluna is a Cirque du Soleil show centered on female goddesses and the mystery of the moon. In the water bowl act, Miranda cavorts with the handsome (and buff) Romeo while doing all kinds of amazing stuff with her body and splashing in an oversized fish bowl. Search on Youtube for Amaluna Water Bowl and you can see this beautiful act for yourself.

AMALUNA - CIRQUE DU SOLEIL - WATER BOWL

The Zarkana Banquine Act – Valentina, the heroine in my new release, got her start as a banquine artist. I can see her flying above everyone’s heads like the female acrobat in this photo. There are a lot of banquine acts but what I love most about the one in Cirque du Soleil’s Zarkana is the romantic, atmospheric quality of the performance. Plus, I just get off on all those strong, manly men throwing the women around.

ZARKANA.-Banquine

The Mystère Hand to Hand Act – I’m just gonna let the photo tell the story on this one. Two hot, muscular men performing feats of strength while they rub up all over each other. Very fun to watch.

Mystere hand to hand act

The Totem Lovebirds – This duo trapeze couple wears yellow bird-inspired costumes but their act definitely isn’t feather-brained. They perform daring and sensual tricks, requiring concentration and perfect timing. It doesn’t hurt that they’re beautiful to look at! You can see the Lovebirds as part of Cirque du Soleil’s touring TOTEM show.

I hope I’ve been able to show you how sexy circus can be. Here’s an excerpt from my new release Master’s Flame, a BDSM romance set in the fictional world of Cirque du Monde.

ddrexcerptbutton

“Make love to me. Just once,” she begged. “Touch me just once so I can know the feeling of your…your magic.”

“My magic?” He shook his head. “Jason’s right. You don’t live in the real world.” He stood and paced away from her.

“Mr. Lemaitre, I would do anything to have you.”

He turned back, holding up a finger. “Don’t. Don’t say you would do anything, especially to someone like me, because I’ll take you up on that offer and you won’t like it.”

“I would like it. I’d do anything for you. Anything, anything, anything.” She yelled the word at him, her heart pounding. “You know how I feel, I know you do. I only have this one life and I want to experience everything I desire.”

“Everything you desire?” The question was a warning, one she didn’t heed.

“Yes, and you are keeping me from doing it.”

“And you need this to be fulfilled in life? You need to be mine? To be taken by me, used by me? Possessed by me, as you so dramatically put it?”

“Yes,” she cried. “That’s what I need.”

He crossed his arms over his chest. “What will you offer in return? What will I get out of this possession, besides a recurrent headache?”

Valentina’s face flushed red, because she hadn’t once, not once, considered his side of things.

“Ah, but you see, my dear, that’s the rub,” he said quietly. “I’m not a service top. I take slaves for my pleasure, not theirs. I have less than no interest in your needs, Valentina, except as they intersect with what I desire.”

She swallowed hard. “Well…what do you desire?”

His piercing gaze transformed from something reproachful to something more speculative. It scared her a little, the assessment in his expression.

“I think you’re a selfish hedonist who wants what she wants,” he said. “That’s not slavery, you know. It isn’t even power exchange. It’s topping from the bottom and I don’t tolerate it in those I ‘possess.’”

Valentina tried not to be distracted by the growing tent in his robe. “You…you would have to teach me to be better. I need control.”

You would have to. I need. You’re still not listening, Valentina,” he said, coming back to the bed. “The only one having their needs met in a relationship between us would be me.”

There had to be some flaw in his thinking, because she was sure he would meet her needs. His mastery would fulfill her as no one ever had. “What can I give you?” she asked. “How can I prove that I’ll do anything for you?”

“There you go with the ‘I’ll do anything’ again.”

“Mr. Lemaitre, please! What can I offer that would satisfy your desires? What would make it worthwhile for you?”

Again, that slow, almost threatening gaze of consideration. His eyes traveled over her, his lips drawn into a contemplative line. “You’ll do anything?”

“Anything, I swear. There’s nothing you could ask for that I wouldn’t gladly do.”

The air seemed to grow heavy between them. She knew she was being impulsive again, but she didn’t care. Everything she’d said was true. After a moment, he made a small motion of annoyance. His expression hardened to something like stone.

“If that’s how you feel,” he said, “then I want a no-limits arrangement. Complete and utter ownership, no holds barred. No negotiation, no contracts, no release clauses. Your body is mine for one month, for whatever I desire.”

Whatever I desire. The idea excited her so much she could barely breathe, but she forced herself to stop, to clarify his terms. “So I would have no rights in this relationship?”

“None.”

“You could do whatever you wanted to me, and I couldn’t stop you? What if you decided you wanted to kill me?”

“Then I get to kill you. Honestly, the way you perturb me, I would put the odds of a murder at 2 to 1.”

She decided he was kidding, although he didn’t have the slightest hint of humor in his demeanor. “Do you really want that?” she asked. “You really want…me…for a month? Does that mean…” She could barely say the words. “Does that mean I would become your slave?”

Some wary expression flitted across his face. His voice was light, almost a whisper, when he answered. “You have been my slave for some time now, haven’t you? You might think on whether it’s what you really want.”

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, originally started by Jill at Breaking the Spine , that highlights upcoming book releases everyone or at least I’m waiting on. :)

Amazon Kindle

Summary:

Enter Shadow Falls: After Dark and meet a vampire named Della, who’s about to discover what her own story is meant to be. . . .Della had the perfect life—the family, a boyfriend, and a bright future—until she was turned, and abandoned by everyone she loves. She takes refuge at Shadow Falls, a camp for teens with paranormal powers.

It’s where she and her best friends, Kylie and Miranda, heal their heartbreak with laughter, and where Della is training to be a paranormal investigator—and she refuses to be distracted. That means there’s no time for romance with Steve, a gorgeous shapeshifter whose kisses melt her heart.  

When a new vampire named Chase shows up at camp, Della’s world is thrown into even more chaos. Arrogant and annoyingly sexy, Chase is a mystery . . . and the only mystery Della likes is one she can solve. She can’t solve Chase, at least not while she’s dealing with ghostly hauntings, vampire gangs and a web of family secrets. Can she prove herself as an investigator and keep her life—and her heart—intact?

Cashel Godfrey is big, tattooed, and angry, so people typically keep their distance. Fresh out of the police academy no one is looking to partner with the six foot four beast.

Freak. Witch. Crazy. Schizo.

Ember Brycin has been called them all. She’s always known she’s different. No one has ever called her normal, even under the best circumstances.

In her pursuit, she is forced between love and destiny and good and evil, even when the differences between them aren’t always clear. At worst, she will incite a war that could destroy both worlds. At best, she will not only lose her heart but her life and everyone she loves. Once the truth is out, however, there will be no going back. And she’ll definitely wish she could.

excerptbrc

Hannah adored the way those beautiful blue eyes sparkled with desire as he brushed a couple of stray hairs from the corners of her mouth before kissing her passionately on the lips. “Listen to me, Hannah. Next time, I’m gonna love and adore every inch of your body for hour after hour, and however much you beg me to stop, I won’t. I’ll keep going, pleasuring your silken curves until you’re spent and unable to climax any more. After that, I’ll hold you in my arms until we both come down from that wonderful, natural high we’ve created together.”

“Yes, oh, dear God, yes, Mitch.” Not only was he a writer, and in her opinion the best the world had ever seen, but he was also a poet, too. Just the way he spoke made her pussy moisten with need, his velvet delivery and choice of words the equivalent of warm, melted chocolate trickling over her skin.

“Only, honey…”

“Only what, Mitch?”

“Only, you’re so fucking beautiful, that I need to be inside you, right now. Just as you want me to be.”

“Yes, oh yes.” Her words were breathy, and although she couldn’t see herself, she knew her whole body flushed pink with sexual arousal. “Your cock is right there. I can feel it teasing me, taunting me.”

He smiled, and then kissed her again, even more forcibly this time, and she felt compelled to respond by pushing her tongue deep inside that beautiful mouth again. “Please, Mitch, I’m begging you. Make love to me.”

“You got it, baby.” He took hold of her hands and wrenched them forcefully high above her head, exposing her armpits, which he feverishly kissed and licked. “Mmm, such an underrated part of a woman’s body. Sexy even.” With those words, he forced her legs wider apart with his own before sinking deep inside her.

“Oh, God, dear God.” Hannah knew her mouth fell open with sheer astonishment, because Mitch was so large he stretched her pussy lips painfully, yet wonderfully wide.

“You like that?” He started to pump energetically inside her. The glow from the roaring wood fire flickering mischievously in his eyes. “And that.” He upped his pace, his hips flexing athletically as he filled her completely.

“Yes.” High on pleasure, she instinctively wrapped her legs around him, hooking her feet together at the ankles, urging him deeper still.

Mitch was the whole package. Articulate, educated, achingly gorgeous, and with a way about him that no woman could ever resist. He’d been buried inside her for mere seconds, but already he released physical feelings and psychological emotions that had lain dormant for years. Emotions that her previous boyfriend Jake wouldn’t even understand, let alone be able to tap into.

Mitch worshipped her breasts, then licked the divide that separated them. His tongue first caressing the mysterious hollow at the base of her neck, before moving ever upward until he reached her throat, then the underside of her chin before finally his lips met hers, making her feel more vital and alive than Jake had done in their two years together.

With their eyes connecting on ever higher levels of understanding, he thrust inside her again, deeper and more dominant this time. “Oh, dear God, Mitch, you feel so good. It’s as though you’re in my womb.” He smiled knowingly, and when he slid almost all the way out, she watched mesmerized as his huge, thick prick, coated with her glistening juices, powered back inside her again, causing her mouth to fall open with sheer delight as she desperately sucked in another lungful of air. Lost in the moment and lost for words, she marveled at the beauty of this man—that rare animal, a man who really knew how to please a woman.

He tasted good as he crushed his lips to hers, the undiluted passion she saw in those big, blue eyes sensuously filtering between their bodies as his tongue forced its way inside her mouth, a mirror image of what his cock did to her sensitized pussy.

When he let go of her wrists, allowing her circulation to return, he assertively pushed her breasts together again, forcing them into impossible, sexy mounds that no push-up bra could ever hope to replicate. Relishing her newfound freedom, Hannah seized the opportunity to fist her hands into his luscious, thick locks once more. Pulling hard, then harder still, it had the effect of raising his head slightly, causing her tortured nipple to become elongated as his lips and teeth stubbornly refused to relinquish their grip on her tender peak.

“Oh Christ, Mitch.” Her previous boyfriends, including Jake, amounted to nothing compared to Mitch Brenna, because he was the real deal.
