Overview

The saga introduction, MASTERS AT ARMS, begins the journey of three men, each on a quest for honor, acceptance, and to ease his unspoken pain. Their paths cross at one of the darkest points in their lives. As they try to come to terms with the aftermath--forging an unbreakable bond--will they ever truly become masters of their own fates? Or would fate become master of them?

NOBODY'S ANGEL (Rescue Me Saga #1): Marc d'Alessio might own a BDSM club with his fellow military veterans, Adam and Damián, but he keeps all women at a distance. When Marc rescues Angelina Giardano from a disastrous first BDSM experience at his club, however, an uncharacteristic attraction leaves him torn between his safe, but lonely world, and a possible future with his angel.

Angelina leaves BDSM behind only to have her dreams plagued by the Italian angel in a wolf mask who rescued her. When she meets Marc at a bar in her hometown, she can't shake the feeling she knows him, but has no idea why he reminds her of her angel. But Marc's search-and-rescue partner, widower Luke Denton, believes Angelina is the angel his wife promised to send him, convincing Marc she's meant for Luke. While trying to protect Angelina from her abusive ex, though, Marc once again finds her at the Masters at Arms Club where she turns his safe, controlled world upside down.

Books in the Rescue Me Saga should be read in order because characters will continue to work on relationship issues even after their happy ending.

ABOUT THE RESCUE ME SAGA: The books in the ongoing Rescue Me Saga are not stand-alone stories and should be read in order, beginning with the books in this volume. (The introduction, MASTERS AT ARMS, also is available as a separate, free download at this site.) Characters will recur in later books to deal with further issues in their lives as the saga continues and each book builds upon all previous ones. Sometimes main characters even need another book to help resolve major issues affecting their relationships.

BONUS MATERIAL in this version: Kallypso Masters has added the PLAYLIST of music that inspired her as she wrote about the first three couples mentioned in this combined volume, as well as a GLOSSARY OF TERMS and a CAST OF CHARACTERS in these books in the saga.

CONTENT WARNING: These books are intended for mature adult readers who are not offended by profanity and graphic (but never gratuitous!) sex scenes. Due to the emotional way in which the author presents the subject matter in the characters' lives (past and present), the books might cause triggers while reading.

She also has brought many readers to their knees-having them experience the stories right along with her characters in the Rescue Me Saga.

Kally has been writing full-time since May 2011, having quit her "day job" the month before. She lives in rural Kentucky and has been married for 30 years to the man who provided her own Happily Ever After. They have two adult children, one adorable grandson, and a rescued dog.

This review is from: Masters at Arms (Intro to a Military Romance & BDSM Series for Adults) (Rescue Me) (Kindle Edition) I got this book free and was hooked and have since bought and read the rest of the series This author makes me laugh and cry. Her characters are so well drawn that you just can't stand not to finish the book as fast as you can. I have since reread the whole series several times waiting on the next book to come out. I am a veteran and the daughter of a veteran. If you know any veterans or spouses I would have them read this series. This review is from: Nobody's Angel (#2 in a Military Romance / BDSM Romance series) (Rescue Me) (Kindle Edition) I love this series's and really loved this book. Kallypso will grab you and keep you hooked on her characters so much that you feel like you really know them personally

I bought this as a sale item and was a little worried I wouldn't like the characters, but they are good peeps that are easy to like who are good to each other. Which makes the kink side more fun to read.

HOT, HOT, HOT....OMG EROTIC HOT! The tension, the anticipation....wow! Masters At Arms: Great introduction to this BDSM/military series. Really gives you a hard look at all three heroes and gives sufficient background information to continue with the following books. Nobody's Angel: Wonderful continuation of Marc's story. He's a bit more complex than Adam and Damien so it was interesting to see where the BDSM lifestyle will eventually lead him. Angelina was a perfect partner for him, I think she really complimented him. They both tested each others boundaries and experimented with the one thing they thought they didn't want, love. She was very unsure about herself, cried a lot, but she was also very tough and defended herself quite nicely and I loved that about her. I love that Ms. Masters has interwoven all of these characters together in these books, it makes for a much more interesting read....a real page turner! Plus she provides the POV from most of the characters and that's always a plus, to know what what each person is thinking or even plotting. SR

Reviewed by Stephanie O. Book provided by the author for review Review originally posted at Romancing the Book First of all, I am proclaimed cover junkie! If you REALLY want to grab my attention to your book, give it a drop dead gorgeous cover. This book gets my entire package of gold stars for the cover. Now shall we move along to the story?!? To start things off, the book was written in a very user friendly way. As the first in the series, we get a peek into the lives of those who will make up the books to follow. This peek is done in such a manner, that the reader doesn’t get lost. First we are introduced to Adam Montague, who just happens to be a Marine. Sitting at the bus stop, waiting to catch a bus to Camp Pendleton Adam is slowly coming out of the drunken haze he has been in for two weeks. Minding his own business, he can’t help but notice when the young lady near is being harassed. Adam steps up to protect the young woman and see that she gets home. Karla only 16 wants to be a singer, and is off to New York. Sitting in the bus station this may not have been the best idea. After a total stranger steps in and sends the creepy male off to lick his wounded pride, Karla starts to re-think her running to New York . . but not enough to want to turn around. When the creep guy comes back, Karla finds herself wishing nothing more than to go home. Pleased that she changed her mind, Adam puts the both of them in a cab to make sure she arrives safely. When Adam and Karla finally part ways, he agrees to stays in touch with her through mail. Breaking her heart that friends was all they would ever be, after all . . she is only 16. The next section deals with Damian Orlando, a bus boy for a hotel restaurant, who is just trying to make rent and keep his nose clean. A young man who stuck up for his sister, found himself serving two years in Juvie and now spending time trying to stay out of trouble, not wanting to go back. It’s while minding his own business cleaning tables that he sees her . . a beautiful blond that is the picture of perfection. Savannah Gentry life is nothing close to perfection. The daughter of a very wealthy and powerful man, Savannah is sold to her father’s clients, and forced to do things she doesn’t want to do. It’s these very things that had her screaming for help one night . . the very night Damian was cleaning plates from the hallways of the hotel. Rushing in to help her is how they finally meet. When they finally depart, he is headed off to who knows where (Marines) and she is heading off to end her life. It’s in the next section we are introduced to Marc D’Alesso. After his brothers’ death in the war, Marc returned home to help run the family business. Two years have passed and he knows this isn’t what he wants to do anymore. After a night with an ex, he finds himself having enlisted in the Navy. Not wanting to go the Marines route because that’s what his brother did, but still wanting to do something, little did he know eventually he would be working for the very same unit his brother died protecting under the same Master Sergeant. Doc they called him. A mission on the rooftop of a building turns bad. The men up top are sitting ducks when a grenade is thrown at them. Here we find Damian again, and after the dust settles up top we find Doc with him. They are attacked again, and Master Sergeant Montague comes to the aid to get his guys out of there. It’s when the mission is over and guys are all sent state side that their lives become even more entangled. Setting the reader up for all that is to come this book took my breath away. I had moments of tears because the story was touching my heart. I had moments where the book was so hot, I wondered if my cheeks were turning red. Finally, I was left absolutely wanting more.

A romance novel with kink!

I've never been a fan of BDSM fiction as I'm not in the lifestyle, so I was surprised when I realized I was enjoying the stories so much. The characters are well-developed and interesting and the romances tender inspite of the BDSM tone of the relationships. Well done!

Dont give up on reading, this is mostly an overview and important for you to see exactly how the characters end up in their individual books. Im so glad to have been introduced to this series

It has been well over a year since I read either of these novels, but I have read both of them multiple times (along with most of the books in the series). As such, I will strive not to reveal spoilers for future books while trying to explain exactly how much I LOVE this series and why I jumped at the chance to reread them when I stink at writing reviews for books I’ve read multiple times. Masters at Arms – 5 stars The first time I read Masters at Arms, I had “bought” it as a Kindle freebie. This was another one of my early forays into the BDSM genre and that Ms. Masters chose the make her Alpha Doms ex-military certainly got my attention. As the series prequel, each chapter/section is sort of a vignette as to how several of the series’ main characters meet. The book’s style is not one that typically appeals to me, yet Ms. Masters managed to give me enough background on each of the characters that she enticed me to buy and read Nobody’s Angel and Nobody’s Hero immediately after I finished reading it. As this is a combo novel, I need no excuse to rush off now to re-read Nobody’s Angel. Nobody’s Angel – 5 stars Despite having read Nobody’s Angel several times, I still find myself responding to different parts of the story as if it were my first time reading it – cringing at Angelina’s first experience with BDSM, being seduced right alongside Angelina by Luke and Marc, confusion at Luke’s distance, frustration with Marc (take your pick of scenes), fear during the abduction scene, and heartbreak when Angelina and her siblings find out the truth of what happened the day their father died. Ms. Masters hooked me with Masters at Arms, but she reeled me in with Nobody’s Angel. She does an amazing job of penning wonderfully erotic sex scenes and weaving them into the story so that her books move seamlessly from scene to scene without leaving me with the contrived-scene taste in my mouth. I absolutely love this series and look forward to setting time aside to reread the rest of the books in the series, especially Nobody’s Hero which may very well be my favorite book in the series. Thank you Ms. Masters for creating such an addictive cast of characters. I reviewed my personal copy of the book.  Reviewed by Angela at Crystal's Many Reviewers!

The story line was weak, but who cares! The characters are grab you and don't let go. Are they bad, stupid, unlucky or are they just people like you and me but they have been fortunate enough to discover a way to happiness most of us never imagined.
