While Chris and Sara have traveled to Paris to avoid the chaos of press and police after the tragic night we’d shared, I have stayed to face the reality of what has happened. But there is no peace to be found in facing the truth, and no truth to be found in the confessions that have been made and retracted. I am a Master, all about control, and yet right now, facing great tragedy, I feel as if I have none. With my club and my relationships of the past in the spotlight, I find sanctuary in the one place I’ve promised I will never be again, but cannot seem to resist. Her arms.
Note: Mark and Crystal’s story begins in the novella Master Undone.
WARNING - Spoilers ahead
In this book we learn more and more about Mark. The police wants to pin Rebecca's murder on Mark and he is already dealing with his mother's illness and both businesses issues. And he can't and won't use his ususal outlet since that is sex. His feelings of guilt over Rebecca doesn't allow him to do that and neither will the upcoming fallout of the murder and his club. Also he is trying to protect the members of said club too. Then Crystal shows up and even though she's not his unusual female and he decided that he wasn't going there again. He can't help but want her and he's mystified by his inability to control his reaction. I am so looking forward to seeing where this goes. And though there hints that Crystal is not a stranger to the BDSM lifestyle she's definitely not practicing it lol. Can't wait to see how many hoops she has Mark jumping through.
I give this book 4 1/2 stars. And I was giving this book by the author for a fair and honest review.

In her private journals, Rebecca laid bare her soul, revealing her obsession for the one man whose erotic demands captivated her imagination-and enslaved her forever. Now, with Rebecca no longer in his life “he” is lost, questioning everything he thought he knew about himself and about the control he holds in such high regard. One woman will reach out to heal him and then turn away, leaving him haunted . She is nothing he thought he wanted and somehow everything he needs. He tells himself to forget her but he cannot escape his desire for her. He has to have more
This was a small tease of Marc's story. I loved that his woman turns out to be exactly opposite of his previous lovers or subs. I am hoping that she stays that way and a I cannot wait to get his whole story. I wasn't expecting to like him after the way he was with Rebecca because I was convinced he was her Master. But I liked him in this short story and think that is more to him than he has shown us so far.
I give this 4 stars and the reason was because it was too short for me and ended way too soon with many unanswered questions. But I know that Lisa will give me those answers in the end. I was given this book by the author for a fair and honest review.

I'm excited to share the cover for Smolder, book three in The Witchbound series by Kelbian Noel. This is a YA urban fantasy series and the first two books are Roots and Sprung. Check out the gorgeous cover and then enter to win a $25 gift card!
Smolder (Witchbound #3) by Kelbian Noel
Calida Cevallos has never been special. In fact, as far as she’s concerned, there isn’t an exceptional bone in her body. But, this summer, she’ll discover extraordinary literally runs through her veins.
I’ve always been a burden. The girl people put up with, the one they tolerated. When I finally found someone who actually wanted me around, I couldn’t have be happier. But lately something’s been bubbling at the surface. Something wants to break free…and I’m afraid it’s me.
I love him. And, for a time, I thought I needed him. Now I’m not so sure. These days, I get the feeling I’m the one who’s needed. By whom? I’m about to find out.
Roots (Witchbound Book One) by Kelbian Noel
Seventeen-year-old Baltimore Land just wants to be normal, but magic has other plans.
I don’t consider myself a witch, that’s my parents’ thing. I’ve never really believed in magic either. Sure, I tried it a few times. Fell for the whole “magic happens” thing. But it didn’t happen to me. No amount of rhyming stopped my parents from moving me halfway across the country. Not one spell stopped me from being labeled the town freak.
And worst of all, no matter how many times I begged the Universe to bring my twin back, I was ignored. Until now.
He’s back all right. And in a magical bind of his own. Not the magic-won’t-work-for-me kind either. In fact, it’s working a little too well. Too dark. Too deep.
It turns out our entire family’s magical roots run just as deep and my brother didn’t end up where he is by accident. So I’m going to help him. But magic isn’t really on my side. Nope. Once I finally get the craft under control, I’m expected to abandon the one person in the world who’s closest to me, just to save myself.
Sprung (Witchbound Book Two) by Kelbian Noel
Since she discovered magic, seventeen-year-old Skye Jackson’s life is almost perfect. Almost. Even perfect has its glitches.
What happens when the one with all the power makes the biggest mistakes? Welcome to my life.
Four months ago, I couldn’t have been happier. When my parents got divorced, I wasn’t exactly thrilled. Especially when Mom married a guy half her age. But then I found out I wasn’t the average Joana. Discovering magic existed and, best of all, I could use it, made everything easier to deal with. That is until I got a little too spell happy. But what girl wouldn’t defend her best friend against a world-class creep? Now I’m stuck in a nightmare, forced to make life and death decisions I never dreamed I’d face.
Love the magic, hate the responsibility.
About the Author:
Kelbian Noel was born on a warm June night in Moncton, New Brunswick. From a very young age, she loved to read. She found herself engulfed in novels by Janette Oke and L.M. Montgomery, but never seemed to find herself in the pages. At the age of 11 she declared she would simply have to rewrite them, and become the youngest author in history. But life was full of baseball, homework, BFFs and boys. Decades later, having studied writing in college and pursued it as a career, she rediscovered her hobby. She is excited to introduce The Witchbound Series to the world with hopes someone will love this story as much as she does. Kelbian lives in Toronto, Ontario with her two children (where, thanks to a thick layer of smog, Junes are much warmer than they used to be).
She is the founder of www.diverse-pages.com and blogs there often, in the company of some pretty cool people.

Fascinated by the dark fantasies in the journals she’s discovered, and the two men who have now found a place in her life, Sara McMillan finds herself torn between her new life and her past. Now, more than ever, Sara identifies with the lost journal writer, Rebecca, and is certain that something sinister has happened.
In the arms of the sexy, tormented artist Chris Merit, Sara seeks answers about Rebecca and ends up discovering things about herself she never knew existed. Chris forces Sara to reconsider who she is and what she truly wants from life, but not before his dark desires threaten to tear them apart. Her boss, Mark Compton, offers her the shelter to understand just what those needs mean to her, and what they might have meant to Rebecca, but can she trust him to lead her to a final conclusion to Rebecca’s story?
Loved this book. Sara and Chris are great together but not so good apart. In this book they have their ups and downs. What with dealing with Sara's issues with her father and Chris's keeping secrets and pushing her away this book will keep you on a roller coaster ride of emotions. Plus we finally learn what happens to Rebecca which i figured out BTW. I was given this book by the author in exchange for a fair and honest review.
