Welcome to my blog! Today is my first time participating in the Weekend Warrior Blog Hop so welcome to any new visitors that might be joining me for the first time.  In your honor, I’ve posted a snippet from book one in the Passion Series, Wanting it All. This scene is from your next book boyfriend’s POV, Lukus Mitchell.

Snippet:

She slowly looks up until her gaze falls upon the haunting dark eyes of her captor.

“I have some really bad news for you, sweetheart. Markus is my friend – a very dear friend. So here’s how this is going to go. I’m going to take you down to that stage and once we’re there, I’m going to make you wish you had never been born.”

When Brianna refuses to break his gaze, his grim scowl turns into an evil smile. “I see you think I’m bluffing – you don’t believe me?”

After several more seconds of their showdown, Brianna finally answers in a defeated tone. “Oh, I believe you – I just don’t care because I deserve everything you’re going to give me and more. You were right – I had it all, and I threw it all away. If I’ve lost Markus, then there’s nothing you can do that will hurt worse than that.”

The Passion Series Boxed Set: 3 books, 2 couples negotiating D/s , and 1 madman trying to destroy it all.

Don’t miss out on this outstanding story that isn’t afraid to break a few of the rules on the way to an HEA.

Wanting it All: Infidelity. Dominance and Submission. Can their marriage be saved?

Brianna Lambert has a kind husband and a good life, but she secretly longs for the excitement of the BDSM lifestyle she lived while she was single. When Jake Davenport, her abusive ex-dom, resurfaces, she makes a poor choice with shattering consequences. Deeply hurt, her husband Markus drops her off at a BDSM club owned by his best friend, Lukus, where she has a choice: sign divorce papers, or submit to harsh punishments to atone for her indiscretion. Brianna doesn’t want a divorce. She loves her husband, and she desperately wants a second chance – no matter what she must endure to win him back.

Jake doesn’t want her to have that second chance, though. He wants to destroy her. Will Brianna and Markus repair their marriage before it’s permanently ripped apart?

Brianna’s best friend, Tiffany, is determined to rescue Bri from The Punishment Pit, but when Tiffany encounters the owner and Master’s Master, Lukus Mitchell, she soon has to worry about saving herself instead.

Securing It All: Punishment. Forgiveness. A Marriage Rebuilt. New Love.

Brianna’s infidelity has come with a heavy price, and she and Markus struggle to rebuild their shattered marriage. At the same time, Brianna’s friend Tiffany confronts her growing attraction to Lukus, who owns the BDSM club The Punishment Pit. The problem is, Lukus’ life revolves around BDSM – and Tiffany is a novice with a sassy mouth. Is there a chance for this relationship to even get off the ground?

Having It All: Steamy Sex. Intense BDSM. Family. Friendship. Danger.

Tiffany has always yearned to explore her edgy dreams of submission, but she is unprepared for the intensity of the Master’s Master, Lukus Mitchell. He has always had a stable of subs to play with over the years – but he finds his priorities changing after meeting the one woman who has made him want to have it all in life. Can Tiffany learn to submit to the dominant man who has stolen her heart?

Markus and Brianna continue to work through growing pains as the dynamics of their marriage change from vanilla to D/s, and they begin to explore Brianna’s deep desires.

The threats from Jake Davenport remain a shadow over the two couples as the danger heats up. Will he succeed in his obsession to destroy their happiness?

Who doesn’t Want it All?

Passion Series Book One

Passion Series Book One

I am so thrilled that Blushing Books is committed to helping draw in new readers to the Passion Series by lowering the price for Wanting it All, book one in the series, to $.99 and if you are in the Kindle Unlimited program, you can read it for FREE!     This is a full-length novel that will keep you on the edge of your seat.  It has some edgy scenes that might push you out of your comfort zone, but it will also make you fall in love with the ensemble cast of characters you will grow to love.

If you are on the fence, here is a link to the reviews.

Check out this pivotal scene near the beginning of the book.  I broke a few romance rules by including infidelity in this story, and while most would say no relationship could recover from a scene like this, I assure you, you’ll be rooting for Brianna, Markus, Lukus and Tiffany to work things out by the end of the story.

Excerpt:

Brianna’s heart is breaking. Witnessing Markus’ pain is her final undoing. The fact that he could walk out and leave her here tells her that she has truly lost him. She knows she should be afraid of what’s to come, but on another level she welcomes the pain she knows she’s about to receive. She deserves it.

She slowly looks up until her gaze falls upon the haunting dark eyes of her captor.

“I have some really bad news for you, sweetheart,” he says. “Markus is my friend – a very old friend. I owe him big time. So here’s how this is going to go. I’m going to take you down to that stage. And once we’re there, I’m going to make you wish you had never been born.”

When Brianna refuses to break his gaze, his grim scowl turns into an evil smile. “I see. So you think I’m bluffing? You don’t believe me?”

After several more seconds of their showdown, Brianna finally answers in a defeated tone. “Oh, I believe you. I just don’t care. I deserve everything you’re going to give me and more. You were right. I had it all, and I threw it all away. If I’ve lost Markus, then there’s nothing you can do that will hurt worse than that.” She continues to stare at him defiantly when it hits her. “So your name is Lukus? As in the Lukus he just won a case for today?”

Lukus smirks. “So now you understand just how much I owe him. The ironic thing is tonight was meant to be a celebration for me and Derek and Markus. Instead, you had to go and let someone stick his dick in you and break my friend’s heart. I almost feel sorry for you,Brianna. I’m not the kind of man you want to make angry. But I am angry, and this is personal. You hurt my friend. I’m going to hurt you… bad.”

Blurb:

Brianna Lambert has it all. After escaping an abusive ex-Dom, she has the good fortune to find and marry the love of her life. Markus’ gentle and devoted love has helped her put the pieces of her life back together. There’s only one problem. As the years go by, Brianna finds herself missing the excitement of the BDSM lifestyle. If only she could talk to her gentle husband about her secret desire to be dominated in the bedroom, but as a submissive, she finds she can’t make the words come.

When her ex-Dom resurfaces in her life, the flames of lost desire are reignited, leading Brianna to make a decision with shattering consequences.

As Brianna’s best friend, Tiffany O’Sullivan understands and even shares Brianna’s hidden desire for a alpha male to protect, cherish and punish her when she’s earned it. Still, Tiff is furious when Bri puts her life and marriage at risk for a fling with her abusive ex.

When Brianna disappears, Tiff tracks her down at a local BDSM club where Markus has sent his wayward wife to atone for her infidelity at the hands of his own best friend – club owner, Master Lukus Mitchell. Tiff may go to The Punishment Pit to rescue her best friend, but quickly finds she may need rescuing herself after encountering the Master’s Master. And when Markus is again ready to confront his wayward wife he, too, must come to terms with a secret past.

Wanting It All explores the delicate balance of dominance and submission as well as the importance of trust and communication within D/s relationships with a story that features believable characters along with explicit, no-holds-barred acts of sexual dominance and submission, as well as domestic discipline.

In one extraordinary weekend, four best friends are thrown into circumstances that force them to open old wounds and dig deep to discover what they really need to make them happy in life.

If you’re looking for a book featuring an explicit, intimate, and heartfelt look into the physical and psychological attraction of BDSM, this is the one book you must put on your reading list.

Are you afraid to Want it All? #SatSpanks

Saturday Spankings-Christmas Hat

Happy Saturday my fellow readers.   I’m going back to my debut novel today to share a little snippet.   Wanting it All, is book one in my Passion Series and it certainly has spankings, but is more accurately a BDSM erotic romance.  In this scene, Tiffany and Lukus haven’t known each other long yet, but he is about to leave to punish Tiffany’s best friend, Brianna.   Tiff has been intimidated by the Master of The Punishment Pit up until this point in the story, making her warning to him a surprise.

Excerpt:

Only when he’s almost gone does Tiff know what she wants to say.

“Lukus?”

Already half out the door, he turns back to give Tiff his attention. He waits patiently for her to spit it out. “Lukus. If you hurt her… I mean really hurt her… I’ll never forgive you.”

Lukus slowly walks back to Tiffany who’s still sitting on her knees near the edge of his messed up bed. His face is a mask. She can’t tell if he’s angry or not, but she knows it doesn’t matter. She needed to say it. Still, the intensity of his gaze drives her to look down at her nervous hands, wringing in her lap.

Tiff is startled when he reaches out to cup her cheek, pulling her face up, until she again meets his gaze. The tenderness in his eyes is surprising, and overwhelmingly comforting.

“Baby. If I really hurt her… I’d never forgive myself.”

Tiff’s sharp intake of breath is her only response as Lukus drops his hand and quickly strides out of the room, leaving Tiffany with a racing heart and a completely overwhelmed mind.

‘I’m in so much trouble here. The man is freaking irresistible. I’m so screwed.’

Livia Grant is Going Deep in Wanting it All

Okay, I’d love to tell you to get your mind out of the gutter, but let’s face it.  I am an erotic romance author and if you’re here on my blog, your mind went to the same place mine does when I hear someone loves it deep.   I am, however, referring to my preferred style of writing/reading.

Maybe it has something to do with my psychology minor in college (see Dad, I told you that degree would come in handy one day!), but I’ve always gravitated to books that not only tell a good story, but also make me connect at a base level with the emotional drivers of the characters.  Maybe it’s understanding what makes the evil bad guy such a villain or why the beautiful, smart heroine could make the most unforgivable mistake in her life.  To me, the most powerful books give me a glimpse into their psyche, often making me examine my own feelings along the way.

So, knowing I like to go deep, you now understand why I took a few chances in breaking a few Publishing 101 rules with my series.   For one thing, the books follow more than one couple and are about a whole cast of friends. The friendships are rich and add a layer of complexity and reality to the series.  Another key differentiator is that this book takes on the taboo topic of infidelity and how a marriage can fight back from the unforgivable.  The first half of Wanting it All in particular is not for the faint of heart as there are some very edgy scenes that border on non-consensual, but readers who stick with me will be rewarded with a very rich character driven story with multiple HEA’s.   There is a strong BDSM theme throughout the entire series, but the story is as much about the psychology behind people’s desires for domination and submission as it is the smoking hot physical sexual activities.

Wanting it All is the first in the four book Passion Series.  Book two, Securing it All is due out on September 24th and book three, Having it All later this fall.  The release date is still TBD for Protecting it All, book four.  I would be thrilled if you would dive in deep with me and my characters!
