I was a Master.
To understand me, you must understand my past.
My father was a Master. My mother his Courtesan.
I was raised in a business that trained women to become whores for the men that owned them. I was taught to train with a strict hand…but to seduce with a kind heart.
Although my mother was one of those golden whores, the women broken and rebuilt to become everything their owner could desire, my mother – in her wisdom and beauty – trapped the heart of her Master.
Through her perseverance, she never let the man go.
Naturally, I followed in his footsteps, not once finding love, but almost gaining a son.
My heart was destroyed on a clear summer day when my child was stripped from my hands. Redemption for my crimes was lost, and loneliness like a man should never know was gained.
Until I found Seraphina…
She thought she could deny me. She thought she could choose her fate or determine the course her life would run. She thought she would never love another because she couldn’t love herself.
With a shattered heart and rebellious mind, she believed her life was broken. She chose death as an avenue to escape the life she was given, and she believed there was nobody who could stand in her way.
As her Master, it was my duty to show her…
…that all her beliefs were wrong.

A new steamy standalone Romantic Comedy from USA Today bestselling author Pamela DuMond.
Charlotte: I was an assistant at a Matchmaking Agency living on Insta-Ramen, hope, and dreams. How was it possible that I made a love match that resulted in the society marriage and decadent wedding reception of the year?
Joe: As heir to the Delacroix dynasty, I avoided society affairs like the plague. I hit the reception to drop off a bottle of Scotch. I didn’t plan on colliding with the sexy, pretty woman with the pouty lips. Certainly, didn’t intend to spill liquor all over her dress.
Charlotte: What kind of jerk spills Scotch all over… I glared up at the tuxedo-clad brick wall of a man holding the serving tray, and went weak in the knees. He was the most smoking hot waiter I’d ever seen.
Joe: I was an honorable man, always cleaned up my messes. But every press of the napkin against Charlotte’s gown filled my brain with filthy, dirty thoughts.
Charlotte: Hot Waiter was practically feeling me up in the middle of the ballroom. Worse? I was enjoying it. Hang on. Wait just one minute – he’s my new CLIENT? Fine, I’d work with the gorgeous jerk. But I didn’t care how hot he was – I would never. Ever. Sleep with him.
Joe: My grandmother hired Pouty Lips to be my Matchmaker? Oh yeah — I was totally going to sleep with Charlotte…

Get ready to fall in love with this new standalone sports romance from New York Times bestselling author Kim Karr.
He’s the newly drafted quarterback.
Hot. Arrogant. Too sexy for words.
Ready to score.
I’m an athletic intern, and the coach’s daughter.
Driven. Determined. Prepared to conquer the world.
The NFL is full of rules. Rules I’ve never broken. Never challenged. Never even scratched—until the day Lucas Carrington crashes into my life with his hard body and I-don’t-give-a-f*ck attitude.
After I almost injure my father’s star player, I volunteer to make sure he’s in top shape. At first, it’s hell. I don’t like his attitude, his cockiness, his easy smile. Don’t like the way he oozes sex. Or how his penetrating eyes follow me everywhere.
That doesn’t stop me from wanting him.
He’s meant to be a distraction—something to occupy my mind for these precious few remaining hot summer nights before I’m forced to leave football behind forever.
I know what we’re doing will lead nowhere good. I know we’re crossing the line. And I know my father will never understand.
None of that matters.
But maybe it should.
Rules aren’t meant to be broken.
Or are they?
