Summary from the publisher:

Forget the sugar. Send her the spice.

Delta Heat, Book 2

Gus Taggert knows a setup when he sees one. The doughnut shop his police officer buddies have sent him to, Cornucopia, is too frilly. Too pink. Then the woman behind the counter serves up a mini-lesson in submission that leaves him ready and willing to obey her order to see her tonight at La Forge BDSM club.

The large, burly cop is exactly the kind of alpha guy that newly minted Domme Aislinn Darby has been dying to tie up and spank. Yet after she puts him through his paces, she finds herself eager to let him take control—something she’s never before enjoyed with a man.

Determined to find out once and for all if she has what it takes to control a scene, she orders him up for one more go. Only this time, she intends to ensure he remembers who’s in charge. She’s even willing to offer a little bribe: accept her dictates, and his reward is her—any way he wants her.

Except when it’s time for payback, it comes with several twists she never saw coming.

Product Warnings: When a male sub decides to turn the tables on his pretty Domme, he calls for backup from his best friends. Contains scenes with m/m/f, m/f/m, f/f, spanking, restraints, and an orgy of pleasure no woman can resist.


Enjoy this special excerpt selected just for Musings readers:

“There any cameras in this room?”

She gave a curt nod toward a far corner.

He didn’t look toward it. He didn’t give a damn who watched. But did she? “Mistress…Ash,” he pleaded, every muscle in his body alert and ready to act.

She shook her head. Closed her eyes. Then she glanced to the corner and signaled with a wave of her hand beneath her chin for their watchers to cut the feed.

“We alone?” he ground out.

“Completely,” she whispered, her eyes wide.

Was she feeling as desperate as he was? Gus swooped toward her, picked her up by the waist and laid her on the bench. “No more slap and tickle.”

She cupped the corners of his shoulders then glided her hands across his chest. “I’m still in charge,” she said, but without any force behind the words, like she was reassuring herself.

“Yes. You can decide whether you want me or not. But choose quick.”

She wrinkled her nose. “You’re a terrible sub.”

One side of his mouth curled up. “Not really into rules.”

“Funny, I don’t seem to mind a bit that you’re not.”

“Punish me for the lapse…later.”

Her mouth curved. “My pleasure.”

He bent and took her mouth, rubbing away the smile. Her hands framed his face. Fingers cupped his ears then bit into his lobes to hold him back.

He didn’t like the uncertainty causing her eyes to darken. “Need control?”

“I do.”

“I’ll give it. Always. Tell me what you want.”

Her chest rose and fell so swiftly, her breaths came in tiny gasps. “Undress me.”

My Musings:

Gus Taggert is a large police officer who likes to submit in his private life but only to the right woman and only up to a point. Aislinn Darby is a relatively new Domme at the La Forge BDSM club and she is still refining her persona.  Her relationship with Gus confuses her because it doesn’t quite follow the rules that she expects and she feels more attraction for the contradictory sub than she is quite comfortable with.

An implied threat to Aislinn rouses the protective instincts in Gus, even as he puts his body and his ego into her hands.  She is determined to test his boundaries by requiring that he submit to a wide variety of tests but he is willing to allow her to play as long as he is given equal time.

This is an extremely hot book that explores a few aspects of kink even as it follows a bit of a mystery.  It continues the theme started with the author’s previous book in the series,  “Five Ways to Sunday” and features sizzling cameos from some of the characters introduced in that spicy tale.  This close-knit brotherhood of police officers work and play hard together in a very arousing fashion.  I wasn’t sure that I liked all that Aislinn forced upon Gus because I can’t help but feel that it would alter the dynamics of the workplace but I have to admit that as usual, Ms Devlin has written a smoking hot tale.  If you like a little kink in your erotica and enjoy tales with sexy alpha males unafraid to stretch their boundaries, and the women who benefit from unabashed attention from them, this is the book for you!


Overall: 4.5 stars
Sensuality level: 5 =Erotic(a):  (Definitely not for a novice romance reader.
Probably has something for every taste.... f/m, m/m/f, m/f/m, f/f, f/f/m, spanking, bondage, strap-on )

I am used to the leading man character to be the dom, so this fictional situation is new to me. Since I haven't read anything yet in which roles are switched, I would say that I am more comfortable with the man being in a position of cpntrol because I like alpha male to the core. But, it would be interesting to see this dynamic from the other side...after all they say that who's really in control in a sub/dom relationship is the sub.

Goddess Fish Promotions July 25, 2012 at 6:00 AM  

Thank you for hosting Delilah today.

I've heard it said so many times that the first line of a book must grab the reader's attention in order for the reader to continue. Is that all important first line actually the first line you write? Or do you get your story started and go back later to discover what will be the perfect first line?

I think turn about is fair play. I think that a woman in the position of the Dom is something that I would like to read more of...I guess because it adds a different texture to the story... I think a woman can be much more aggressive and yet, she can be passionate at the same time in her dominate side...

Anne July 25, 2012 at 9:56 AM  

I definitely prefer the man is be the dom in the stories I read. Some switching is fine. I guess I have a hard time seeing a small woman dominating a larger, sometimes much larger, man. Kind of like my smaller male cat standing on top (literaly on)of my twice as large male cat and trying to dominate him with a mouth full of his neck fur and the big guy just laying there.

Delilah Devlin July 25, 2012 at 11:52 AM  

Hey there! Thanks first to Seductive Musings for hosting me today!

Then onto the topic of male subs...

I will admit, when Gus turned out to have sub leanings, I was surprised. He's all male. I've read male-sub stories where the hero felt "weak"--Gus isn't weak.

He's willing to a point. And that point was what made the story fun for me to write.

Delilah Devlin July 25, 2012 at 11:54 AM  

Karen H! Openings, for me, are the hardest part of a book to write! I can't move on until it feels right. I will spend more time there than anywhere else. So yes, I have to have that opening line, that opening situation that intrigues me before I can move on.

Ingeborg July 25, 2012 at 12:13 PM  

I would have to say it should be the man, but that's just my opinion.

Carin July 25, 2012 at 12:33 PM  

I love reading about a Domme now and then as well! I know there are as many out there but they are there and we should embrace them as well. Besides it gives me a few ideas ;)

Anonymous,  July 25, 2012 at 12:33 PM  

I find the idea of a male sub very appealing, yet I hardly ever see it. The alpha male offends my sensibilities when he's too controlling, and I definitely have a bit of a Domme streak.


Delilah Devlin,  July 25, 2012 at 12:37 PM  

Ingeborg! don't let any preconceptions stop you from giving this story a try. I promise you'll be surprised.

Carin! I'm glad I inspired you! :)

Anon! Well here you go. Just don't expect either Ash or Gus to behave the way you expect. :)

Mocha Princess Aurora July 25, 2012 at 4:16 PM  

I love the idea of a man letting go control to a woman once in a while. I think it is something we dont see often and it makes people feel better that it is a reality!

Tore July 25, 2012 at 9:26 PM  

I like the man being in control. I am a follower and email subscriber. Please enter me in contest.

Bethie July 25, 2012 at 10:09 PM  

I like the female being the domme. I haven't read anything like that yet. I am putting this one on my wish list.

I've read a couple of books with the heroine as a Domme. It really doesn't matter to me which one is in charge as long as it's a believable relationship between the hero and heroine. I can enjoy both in the role of D/s.

Delilah Devlin,  July 26, 2012 at 12:15 AM  

Princess! You've been intrepid today, hitting all the sites! :) And I'm glad you're open to a male sub story. Gus is ready to please Ash in every way she wants. It doesn't make him weak in the least!

Tore! Hey there! Pulled you out of lurkdom, did I? :)

Bethie! Hope you enjoy it!

Julianne! Glad you're open-minded.

marybelle July 26, 2012 at 4:55 AM  

It does look like an extremely HOT book. I'm sure there are territories explored that I am not familiar with. Live & learn!!


Tamsyn July 26, 2012 at 11:22 AM  

I would prefer the man as the Dom. But it is interesting to read about a Domme as well. It is a whole different lot of power play. If the story is good, I would read it. Thanks for the giveaway.

Kathleen Tudor July 26, 2012 at 1:32 PM  

I'm a switch, so it really doesn't matter to me when I'm reading who is on top as long as the characters are believable in their roles.

flchen1 July 26, 2012 at 3:32 PM  

I'm intrigued--it's not as common a characterization, but I'd happily follow wherever Delilah leads, so bring it/her on! ;)

The cover and the title suggest that this book will deliver a romantically hot story. Definitely worth reading.

Joanne July 26, 2012 at 5:07 PM  

I was always taught that girls can do anything they set their minds to, so why not being a Domme? I think there are men who want to be dominated while there are women who like to be in control and why not? If that's what makes you happy and everyone participating agrees, then I say go for it.


Emily July 26, 2012 at 10:42 PM  

I like having a female be the Domme. I have a dominant personality and I see myself more in that role than in a submissive one, so it's nice to see a female I can relate to.

Delilah Devlin,  July 27, 2012 at 12:03 AM  

Marybelle! Maybe so...

Tamsyn! Thanks for dropping in!

Kathleen! EXACTLY!

Fedora! *sigh* You made me so happy.

Delilah Devlin,  July 27, 2012 at 12:05 AM  

Romance Books! I try to deliver heat and heart.

Joanne! Whatever gives you pleasure...

Emily! Hope you enjoy the story.

Jen B. July 27, 2012 at 4:12 PM  

Ok, this excerpt didn't end with a giant screaming fit. From me, not the characters. I want to know what happens next but I imagine he must undress her... Ugh! Now I want to know more! jepebATverizonDOTnet

Delilah Devlin,  July 28, 2012 at 12:42 AM  

Jen B! Yay! I did my job!

Delilah Devlin,  July 30, 2012 at 12:12 PM

My FREE Kindle Quest

I've wanted a Kindle for what seems like forever, but haven't been able to afford it (and that's saying something since I can justify the cost of just about ANYTHING that I really want). I've tried winning one in one of the many giveaways that have taken place over the couple of years, but with no luck :( So I've decided to take matters in hand so to speak :) I've now decided that I am going to accumulate enough Swagbucks from my Swabucks searches to buy in essence my new Kindle will be FREE...funded entirely by my internet searches done on Swagbucks. I'll keep you informed of the Great Kindle Quest below (in case you're interested....if not feel free to just skip over this part, but really who wouldn't be interested in a FREE Kindle?)
Goal: $119
Current Swagbucks Amazon Gift Card balance: $90.00
If you'd like to learn how you can earn Swagbucks and earn your own Amazon Gift Cards to buy books, a Kindle or other merchandise sold at Amazon contact me and I would be more than happy to tell you how I plan to go about it. (just so you know you can earn both and gift cards on this rewards site)
