Not Even Death- the Series
First in a series of four novellas about what happens to a slave when her Master dies and she learns, not even death, could break their bond of love.
Markus Cruz changed Carissa/Calico's life when they first met in NYC in 1999. Through his dominance and her willingness to submit, she is transformed into a slave, and he a man who learns to love again. Some bonds do not end, even in death, and Markus will continue to guide his slave as he creates her second happy ending as his final gift of love.
Calico is swept away in a whirlwind of suitors, hand chosen by Markus. Each is tasked with imparting a lesson that will help her down the path to finding happiness and filling her slave heart with love and surrender once more.
Not Even Death-Eternally Your Master
Calico Cruz's world was torn apart when the Master she loved lost his long, painful battle with a fatal illness. All she'd been and done over the past ten years had been because of Markus Cruz, now, she'd have to face life at the estate alone. Or would she?
The knock on the door surprised her, but not as much as what the knock would set into motion. After allowing her a month to grieve, Markus was reaching out and pulling her from the darkness—pushing her back into the light of life. Not even death would keep him from controlling and assuring her future path to love and submission.
Derrick Destry was Markus' best friend in life and first on the list of allies for his plan. After months of preparing, Derrick would help shake things up in all the right ways so Calico could return to really living as a slave.
Before she could find love again, she would need to be broken back to baseline and Derrick was trustworthy and strong enough to get the job done. He would be the one to break down her walls and help prepare the foundation for her future.
With Derrick's help Markus will remind her of the sweet taste of surrender and that he will be her Master—ETERNALLY. Together they will guarantee Calico another happily ever after.
In the meantime, she will have an earth shaking happy for now!
About the Author
I'm a hopeless romantic. Even when I think it's hopeless, it always woos me back . That is the power of hope and with hope anything is possible. I believe in the transforming power of love, even when done wrong, it always leaves its mark on your heart, coloring how you will love in the future. With these things in mind, I write about transformation, acceptance and overcoming--through and with love. I choose to write about Domination and submission and the subtle nuances of these relationships that take them beyond role play. I'm inspired to write by things I see, smell, experience and largely by what I hear. Music and the sound of someone's voice are two of my favorite indulgences. I've written for as long as I can remember and now, I'm truly inspired to do more.

Love this and I can't wait to read more! Markus is the most loving and attentive Master. Even from beyond the grave he is seeing to his slave's needs and happiness. Assuring that his slave Calico, will begin living life again and find purpose and ultimately serve a new Master one day. Calico must first surrender herself and learn new lessons from her Master that will help her move forward with her life. Derrick Destry is one of Markus allies and just the right man to start Calico on her new journey. "Eternally Your Master" is one of those stories that when you're done reading, it sticks with you like a sweet and delicious aftertaste. It's memorable. There was even a moment when I almost got a little emotional, when Cali wanted to watch the sunset. So, now let me get into some of the fun kinky stuff. OHHH! It's so good. For example... you know when you go to a water park and you're on a ride that gets you soaking wet and you have to walk around with a wet spot on your ass all day? Yeah. It's like that. Our first taste is the mutual masturbation scene over the webcam. Holy hell it was finger banging good. Then the after dinner alley scene was really good. I mean, it was so well written that I felt like I was watching it actually happen. It was gloriously dirty. Actually, all of the sex scenes were amazing. I want my very own Derrick. All of the characters were very interesting. Even though Mrakus is the deceased Master, I was still very intrigued by his character. I would really love to read more about Markus and Cali's relationship and how Cali became who she is today. With some of the flashbacks we do get to see that Cali is a street kid and Markus finds and helps her. But what we don't get to see is how Carissa becomes Calico the slave. Maybe that part is slowly revealed as we read through the series. *fingers crossed* Derrick, Derrick, Derrick. I really want to know more about this guy. I think he's got a very dark side and he's been eyeing Cali for a long time. YUM I want to explore his dark side. When Derrick first came to see Cali and he surprised her... grrrrr! I bet you're wondering why 4 stars? Well, to each their own right? First, the thought of "willing your slave to someone" is strange to me. However, I know that its only strange because I've never been in that type of relationship and I don't ever want to be. I'm interested and intrigued by it and love to read about it, but I could never personally do it. Maybe this is coming out wrong... It's not a bad part of the story, it's just one little sentence in the story that never even comes to fruition because Markus loves his Calico too much and that is perfectly fine with me. The restaurant scene was hot but what Derrick did with her panties... well, no thank you. You'll just have to read it to find out. Another thing that sort of bothered me was when the word slut is used. The word is only used a few times but it sort of takes me away from the moment. A lot of the books I read use the word slut and I'm not offended. I think the word slut can be a term of endearment and/or as an empowering word. It can be delicious dirty talk in bed too. Insert Soapbox... Women are crammed into this tiny little box and expected to dress and act a certain way. If we step outside that box society starts to label us. Slut, whore or whatever. Actually, one of my most favorite words in the entire world is "is the big bad C word" and I only call my really good friends that. Anyway, back on track here. So I'm good with the word slut, but the few times its used just caught me off guard. With all that being said the sex scenes are still super filthy hot. I know when my husband takes me to bed, I AM his dirty little slut. Something else that bothered me a little was why Cali cared if Derrick knew her background. Who cares where you came from, it only matters who you are now. The scenario sort of reminded me of Pretty Woman when Edwards friend Philip found out that Vivian was really a prostitute. The same thing didn't happen here and Cali is not a prostitute. Finally the last little thing that made me go hmmm. Was the stepping stones. I actually really liked them and thought it was very sweet. But then when Cali got one after Derrick left, it sort of felt like a Girl Scout badge was earned. Not really a big deal, but that was the first thing that popped in my head. Overall, I really liked this and I can't wait to read more about Calico's journey through new lessons and a new beginning. I would like to know more about the characters though and I would like a little more back story on Markus and Cali. The sex is hot and totally a 2 finger 1 handed read. The Master/slave dynamic is really sweet and beautiful. I absolutely love it. I would recommend this to people who love to read erotic romance and BDSM. This is a Master/slave relationship so please be aware of that when you are reading this and enjoy the journey.
