To Serve Is Divine (The Divine Trilogy #1)
Catherine O’Chancey is a reserved, demure, and graceful submissive. All traits she trained hard to enhance when she discovered the world of Dominance and submission in college. In an attempt to start fresh after the unexpected death of her last Dom, Catherine moves to Dallas, TX to escape the shroud of darkness he left behind in her life. She has tried to fight the need that resides deep within her to submit, but finally has to admit she can’t for it is not a choice, but part of who she truly is. After months of mental preparation, she ventures back into the lifestyle by attending a coveted open-night event at Dungeons and Dreams, an exclusive BDSM club.
Is it fate or coincidence that Catherine garners the attention of one of the club’s board members who happens to be on the hunt for the perfect sub – a partner who enjoys receiving pain and pleasure as much as he enjoys doling it out?
Jayden Masterson is many things: a firm Dom, a shrewd businessman, and a gentleman. What he isn’t, is someone who partakes in relationships outside of contractual ones with his multiple, un-collared, regular submissives. While he likes rough sex, he is not an animal, and can find pleasure only if it is consensual. What his harem is missing is a pain slut; could there be one in his future?
Upon meeting Catherine, Jayden feels an instantaneous spark inside him that has him wanting to know not just her body, but her mind. He wants to unravel her mysteries and discover her secrets. Through pain can they find the pleasure they seek? Can part-time pain lovers find full-time fulfillment when it’s not in their contract?

Review by FS Meurinne

When I started to read To Serve is Divine I was imagining that I would be reading a story about BDSM, with lots of sex and little plot. Well, I was taken a back when I actually read how the author took the characters and really became more than a sexual relationship. Jayden Masterson is a very powerful, handsome dominant that has no inclination to have a real relationship or even find love. He just focuses in having any of his multiple submissive at his disposal.

That’s until he meets Catherine, a lonely young woman who knows what she wants in life and she agrees to be Jayden submissive. Little did they knew that the relationship that started would change them both. She needs someone to trust, her last abuser made her more reclusive and Jayden just happens to help her heal, she trusts him and he falls for her.

The story keeps you on a special kind of edge until the end, and even after you will be looking forward to read the next.

A Divine Life (The Divine Trilogy #2)
Over the past year of being Jayden Masterson’s collared submissive, Catherine O’Chancey has worked through the mental terrors left behind by her old Dom — or at least she thinks she has. To celebrate their collaring anniversary, Jayden organizes a special day, during which her final fantasies will be realized and her limits tested. Will it prove to be more than she can handle? Can she endure the erotic onslaught her mind and body will experience and survive unscathed?
While Catherine faces these dark shadows and pleasurable highs, Jayden will find his own inner strength being tested, too. He has come to realize that, somewhere along the way, Catherine has taken possession of his heart, mind, and body. Now, he faces his biggest challenge ever; he must let go of all his submissives but one: his jewel, Catherine. Can he leave his philandering ways behind? Has he made the ultimate mistake by putting his jewel into the hands of others? Will his gift to Catherine wind up costing him the one thing that has ever meant something real to him? Jayden has helped Catherine heal from past wrongs and chase away the nightmares. In return, Catherine has shown him what it means to care for someone beyond mere sexual gratification. Their strengthening bond as Master and submissive has paved the way for deeper emotions — if they can find the courage to open up to each other.
Join Catherine and Jayden for an emotion packed weekend that could forever change the future of their relationship. This could be their best chance at love, but first both Dom and sub must gain control over the one thing they can’t put in a collar: their deepest doubts and fears. For this kind of healing, the necessary treatment must be mutually given. Is it too late to erase some old scars?

Review by FS Meurinne

The first book showed us how Catherine and Jayden started their relationship, in this second book starts on Catherine’s collaring anniversary and Jayden organized her a special day, where her limits are tested in more ways that she imagined, but she is not the only one getting tested, Jayden is being tested as well, he comes to realize that she has fallen for Catherine, he must let go of his other submissives. But in this book he also realizes he made a mistake, would this cost him the best thing he has ever had, the one thing that has been real?

It’s their time to find out if they can change their relationship and open themselves to their love of is everything too much for them to overcome?

This book will get a hold in your emotions; you’ll travel across a rollercoaster of possibilities and will allow you to find the character’s greatest fears. This is not only a BDSM relationship but a different way to find love when you never expected to.

I can’t give more away as I received this as an ARC, but believe me when I say you will never be disappointed.
