Countdown to Release of Protecting it All #WIPitUp

ProtectingItAll

Not sure this counts as my current Work in Progress since we are officially done with edits and in the final countdown to Saturday’s release of Protecting it All, Book Four in the Passion Series.   I’m thrilled that not only will I be releasing this new book, but Blushing Books is also putting books 1-3 together in a boxed set for the first time ever.  It will be released on Saturday too, so no more excuses for missing out on the series since we will have over 250,000 words (3 full-length novels) available for only $6.99!

For fans of the series, I know you’ve been waiting patiently to see what is going to happen with one evil Jake Davenport.  You don’t have long to wait now!  Here is just a little tidbit from early in the book to whet your whistle.

Excerpt: (Lukus POV)

Dylan couldn’t wait to lay down his own agenda. “We’ve been watching long enough. Tell me we’re going into the fucking warehouse tonight.”

Lukus didn’t need to intervene. Z had just about had enough of young Parker. “And do what? For the hundredth time, we don’t have enough evidence yet. Davenport is smart. He’s got a lot of security around him. We haven’t found anything illegal, and even if we had, we know for a fact he has some of the local law enforcement’s ear. You know we got a lot of push back after you got the shit beat out of you. We’re gonna need something rock solid before we can involve the police again,” Z snapped.

“Fuck the police,” Dylan retorted.

“Sure. Fuck the police. I’m not exactly their biggest supporter, but will you get your head out of your ass for five minutes and listen to me rationally? What’s your plan here? To rush in there guns blazing and shoot the bastard dead? If so, that’s great. I’ll be sure to visit you once a year in Statesville.” Z was steamed.

“All right, everybody calm down. We’re on the same team.” Lukus had stepped between them to try to keep the two men from throwing punches.

Cameron’s voice came over the speaker. “If you guys are done, I have new information.”

Derek urged him on. “Great. Tell us what you’ve got.”

“Look at the screen Z just got hooked up.”
The four men gathered around the thirty-two inch monitor as the picture of a naked, red-headed woman hanging from an elaborate display of ropes came into focus. She was writhing in pain and the cameraman made sure to capture the running mascara on her face.

Cam continued his report. “This is just one of six different interactive Internet sites run out of the ‘Strictly Disciplined’ warehouse you’ve been staking out. This channel specializes in bondage and what they call diabolical restraints. There’s another focused on anal domination, another for group orgies, and my personal favorite, staged abductions with non-con elements. The most controversial with the lowest subscription numbers is all watersports, and I’m trying not to be totally grossed out by the fact that the most popular site is for staged incest fantasies. Mommy/son, Daddy/daughter, brother/sister.”

Dylan was animated. “Thank fuck. We’ve got him.”

Cameron corrected him. “We don’t have shit. The sessions are often live. The recording studios are set up in the warehouse, and every session begins with the actors in the scene recording their consent to participate live. They end every session the same way, with a narrator interviewing the players involved to find out their favorite part of the scene or what they didn’t enjoy. I’ve been able to match at least a dozen on-screen talents with surveillance photos you took Dylan; proving these women and even some submissive men are willingly driving themselves to and from the warehouse to work just like they would if they worked at Wal-Mart.”

“That’s such bullshit! He has to be blackmailing them.” Dylan’s emotions were running hot.

Lukus tried to settle him down. “Will you sit down and let Cam finish? I’d like to hear more.”

“As best I can tell, he has another half-dozen or so 1-800 phone-sex numbers being run from inside, too. He has enough bandwidth and phone lines going into the building to run a small city. They’re using top-of-the-line encryption and security firewalls, which I, of course, was able to circumvent, thank-you-very-much. He’s making a shit-load of money and even if he’s paying the sex-workers top dollar, he’s had these sites up for years. Subscriptions are through the roof. I haven’t found his offshore accounts yet, but I know he has them. The cash-flow through the Strictly Disciplined accounts is incredible,” Cam told them.

Derek jumped in next. “I think that sounds like our best angle, don’t you? The websites themselves feel like a dead-end.”

“Are you nuts? They’re hurting those women!” Dylan protested.

“Those women are willing sex workers.” Lukus countered.

Blurb:

Jake Davenport is still on the loose, and Lukus Mitchell and Markus Lambert have had enough. They won’t rest until the sadistic Dom who is threatening their women is behind bars…or dead.  They don’t care which. Lukus assembles a team of his top security personnel and heads to California leaving Markus and Tiffany’s cop brother, Aiden, in Chicago to keep Tiffany and Brianna safe, locked down in the loft at The Punishment Pit.

Derek’s brother Dylan is already there, staking out the predator, feeling helpless as he watches Jake lure innocent women into his nest of consensual, but brutal, sexual websites. When Jake turns his eye to Hannah Martine, Dylan decides he’s done with just watching.

Hannah moved across the country trying to escape the demons of her past, but the fresh start she’s hoping for is cut short when Jake presses her to accept a tempting job that will solve her financial woes. Once he gets her alone, the sadist uses humiliation, drugs and brutal force to try to bend Hannah to his will.

Everything comes to a head when Lukus and the gang realize only someone on the inside can get close enough to collect evidence of the illegal activities needed to put Davenport away. Dylan is furious they are even considering sending the innocent woman he has strong feelings for anywhere near the monster trying to break her.

Will Hannah have the strength to walk back into the demon’s lair? And even if she does, will the threat against Brianna and Tiffany be dissolved? Jake is obsessed with the women from his past, and as authorities close in, he will become desperate for his revenge against Lukus and Markus.

This is Book 4 of Livia Grant’s sexy Passion Series – a roller-coaster of suspense, emotion, heartfelt love and darkest desires.

Cover Reveal: Protecting it All #SatSpanks

We are in the one week countdown until Protecting it All, book four in the Passion Series is released on January 23rd.  To say I’m excited is an understatement.  This book is (by far) the most intense I’ve written. The words did not jump onto the page.  The story came out kicking and screaming, but in the end, I’m thrilled with the end product.  Only time will tell if my fans are as thrilled as I am. 🙂

So today, in honor of #SatSpanks, I’m releasing my brand new cover.  Isn’t it awesome? Meet Dylan and Hannah.  Here’s a little excerpt from Protecting it All from Dylan’s POV.

ProtectingItAll

Snippet:

Dylan Parker’s right leg bounced up and down self-consciously. He was wired on caffeine, adrenaline and dread. If he didn’t already know for a fact that the seemingly average ranch home he was staking out was a veritable fortress, he would have stormed it already, Lukus Mitchell be damned. He’d only worked for Titan Securities for a few weeks, but he already hated the fucking job. As the new guy, he’d been relegated to stakeout duty, which meant long boring hours of no activity.

Boredom wasn’t why he hated the job.

What he loathed was following a lowlife like Jake Davenport and not being able to do jack-shit to intervene. In the weeks Dylan had been trailing the prick, he’d seen more horrendous grievances against women than in his entire two duties in Afghanistan as a decorated Marine sniper.

It turned his stomach to think what might be happening inside the brick home he had his binoculars trained on. He’d sat outside this home many nights and had seen at least three other women go inside. In every case, they’d come out looking worse for the wear – sometimes limping – often disheveled – always scared.

Davenport only brought the innocent ones home with him.

What had Dylan most upset was that tonight it wasn’t just some nameless victim inside that house. Tonight it was Hannah Martine. He wasn’t prepared for the protective anger he felt on behalf of Davenport’s newest victim.

Only one more week!  Watch for buy links on the 23rd.  Don’t forget to check out these other talented authors before you go!

Dangerous Bosses #SatSpanks

Saturday Spankings-Christmas Hat

Happy 2016!  I hope you had a fabulous New Year’s celebration and that things are off to a fabulous start for you so far.   We are in a new release countdown with only three weeks until Protecting it All comes out on January 23rd. For Passion Series fans, you know Jake Davenport is the man we love to hate. If you are like me, I found myself shouting at Hannah not to trust him. But alas, she didn’t listen and early in the story finds herself locked in his home, having been drugged by the devious man attempting to consume her life.

Snippet:

Jake moved behind his desk, sitting in his chair, cradling her too gently in his arms. For a moment it felt nice, as he stroked her long, sandy-blonde hair intimately. She had just about convinced herself she’d been imagining the danger when she noticed the heavy steel rings attached every few inches along the exterior edge of Jake’s desk. They lined the top and bottom edge of the desk. They seemed like a strange choice in decor.

“This is an odd desk.” Her own words sounded distant.

“It’s a special desk. I like to engage in unique activities in my office. This desk is an important part of that.”

“Activities?” Her tongue felt thick, making the single word sound distorted to her ears.

“Let’s call them performance evaluation activities. I am a precise man. I require precise performance from my employees. If they miss the mark, I enjoy correcting employees in order to help improve their performance.”

*****

Protecting it All is book four in the Passion Series. All of the characters you know and love are a major part of the story, but we will also meet Hannah Martine and several of her friends as they become the focus of Jake’s crazy.  Can Lukus and the gang from Titan Securities protect Hannah before it’s too late and will Dylan be able to convince her that not all men prey on women like her would-be employer?  Most important, will Jake get what he deserves for terrorizing women?

Tiffany is in BIG trouble. #6BestHop

Six of the Best-450-1

Happy Sunday. Are you ready for Six of the Best?  Today’s excerpt is from my soon to be released book four in the Passions SeriesProtecting it All is an erotic suspense novel that has all of the characters you already know and love, but also follows new couple, Dylan and Hannah,  In today’s excerpt, Tiffany has just put herself in danger and is in big trouble with her fiance.

Excerpt:

Tiffany licked her lips self-consciously, trying to stay calm. “You’re right to be mad for my not leaving a note, but I promise – I was safe. I just had lunch with Aiden and since he’s a cop, he had his gun with him. I promise, I didn’t leave his side. He picked me up and dropped me off at the door and we stayed local, just going to the diner down the street.”

“I don’t fucking care if he took you to a locked-down safe house. You didn’t listen to me. You left against my explicit instructions. You basically said, ‘fuck you, Lukus. I don’t love you enough to obey you.'”

She forced a smile, but it only made him look like he was going to unleash another angry rant. His green eyes lit into her, burning her with layers of guilt for worrying him.

“Honey, all I can say is I’m sorry that I didn’t call so you wouldn’t worry.”

“Don’t honey me like you forgot to do the damn dishes. This is serious shit, Tiff – life and death kind of serious. I haven’t wanted to worry you with all of the dirt we’ve dug up on Davenport, but believe me when I say he’ll stop at nothing to prey on vulnerable women.”

Lukus released her, pushing Tiffany away as he stormed to the kitchen island to put some distance between them. She fought the urge to break into tears, in part because she was so angry with herself, but mostly because Lukus had a harder time staying angry with her when she cried and she didn’t want to manipulate him.

A long silence stretched out before Lukus spoke with a forced calmness. “Strip – naked – right where you are and then go lay over the back of the love seat with your ass laid out for your punishment.”

“Lukus… please.”

“Not one more word, little girl. And no more Lukus until further notice. I’ve clearly been too soft on you, so until I’m done lighting up your disobedient ass like I never have before, I’m Sir and don’t forget it.”

Tiffany’s pulse skyrocketed at his angry words. She’d lived through several intense discipline sessions at his hands, but Lukus was a man of his word. She had no doubt that he wouldn’t be stopping today until he was sure she’d learned not to leave the loft without her guard, at least not until Jake Davenport was behind bars.

Tiffany is in big trouble! #SatSpanks

Saturday Spankings-Val Heart Paddles-rev

It’s Saturday and you know what that means. 🙂 It’s time for some Saturday Spankings. The seven line restriction just doesn’t let this scene play out to the juicy part, so if you want to know what happens next, join me tomorrow for Sunday’s Six of the Best blog hop where I’ll continue the scene.

If you are a Passion Series fan, you know that Lukus Mitchell is a hot as hell Dom who owns a sex club called The Punishment Pit. As you might expect, he knows how to discipline naughty submissives.  In today’s scene, his fiance, Tiffany has broken the biggest rule of all. She put herself in danger.  This is an excerpt from the first scene of the next book in the series, Protecting it All, an erotic suspense novel.  Stay tuned for a release date announcement in the coming weeks.

Excerpt:

She’d barely stepped out into the foyer when she came face-to-face with a frantic Lukus, cell phone at his ear.

“Never mind, Derek. Call off the search. She just walked in. Later.”

Tiffany couldn’t say a word for the lump choking her at realizing her Dom had found out she’d disobeyed him.

Lukus lunged forward, closing the gap between them to pull her into his arms, squeezing her so long and hard she started to feel light headed. She could feel him trembling, which made her feel even worse than if he’d just started lecturing her for disobeying.

By the time he pulled back enough so she could look into his eyes, she was the one trembling, knowing how Lukus would be dealing with her decision to leave the loft without a guard.

“Lukus, I can explain…”

“Really – because I can’t wait to hear why the woman I love – the woman who has agreed to let me be her Dom and HoH – the woman who promised to stay in the loft so the lunatic sadist who is trying to hurt her couldn’t lay his hands on her – why the FUCK that woman would leave without her bodyguard – without calling or even leaving a note – even leaving without her cell phone so I couldn’t call her!”

Oh yeah, someone is in big trouble.  Before you leave, check out these other great authors.
