RELEASE BLITZ Alexandr's Cherished Submissive (The Submissve's Wish #3) Ann Mayburn

Alexandr's Cherished Submissive Cover
button synopsis

7 years ago
From the moment Alexandr Novikov met the young auburn haired woman bartending at her uncle’s pub in Ireland, he’d been fascinated by her delicate beauty and fiery spirit. Unfortunately, he is in no position to offer her the kind of safe, normal life she deserves so he attempts to put her from his mind for her own good. Something easier said then done when a deal is struck between the Novikov Bratva and the Irish Cleary Gang, an arrangement that includes Alex and his men being on twenty-four hour bodyguard duty with the object of his forbidden desires. Jessica Venture came to Dublin to spend some time bonding with her birth mother’s family, a connection she desperately needs after losing her adoptive parents within a year of each other back in the States. The last thing she expected was to fall in love with a handsome, mysterious, and sometimes scary man who was well known for his sexual appetite, but rejected her attempts to seduce him. There are outside forces that will do anything to keep them apart, and Jessica will have to make a desperate choice that will change their lives forever. Warning: There is light bondage, domestic discipline, spanking, and a F/F scene that is a voyeuristic Doms delight. Author’s Note: This is part One of Two for Alex and Jessica’s story. In Alexandr’s Cherished Submissive we get a look into the past and the events that shaped Alex and Jessica into the people they are today. Part Two, Alexandr’s Reluctant Submissive, is present day on, and the expected release date is early Fall 2015.

Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian I Dig Good Books.

When I'm sent the blurb and asked do I want to read this, I quickly form a yes no opinion. I don't look to read any reviews (or least, I'm trying not to after being burnt that way!) and I don't look how long a book is. I just say, yes or no. This was a resounding yes.

This book totally surprised me! Totally not what I was expecting, at all. I expected a short sexy book, wiht not much about it. (Sometimes, you need such a book, you really do, which was why I said yes)

BUT this book is so much more than that!!
 Its 466 pages are deep dark and deadly writing. It has the sexy part I was expecting, boy does it ever, but its not just the sex. The sex parts are all very inkeeping with Alex and Jessica's story, their relationship as it builds. There is emotion, love and hate, joy and pain, and almost every emotion known to human kind. We get both Jessica and Alex, so thats good, and you feel for Alex at points, you really do. He wants to keep Jessica safe, but he wants to show her off too.

Their attraction is strong and instant and neither can resist for long. But its also deadly to both Alex and Jessica, also to Peter and Mary, Jessica's aunt and uncle. The Russian mobsters play a huge part, obviously, since thats Alex's background, but also the Irish version too.

Jessica doesn't know it all in the beginning. She finds out along the course of the book, just not in the way she wanted to.

There is danger at every turn, but also an experience! I LOVED The Hunt. I also loved that Alex gave Jessica every chance to say no, and she didn't. I absolutely adored Catrin and the way she explained things to Jessica, especially the sharing. But the line of the book, the only one I highlighted was also from Catrin "Alex is a good man, doing evil things."
A huge part of the book is set 7 years previously, the meeting of Alex and Jessica, and the latter quarter skips and skims over the next 7 years bringing us right smack up to date til...well...til the end!! I knew this was a two-parter going in, I just didn't see then end creeping up on me, I was so engrossed! I'm assuming that the second book will pick up right where this one left off, and  I hope I  get a chance to read it.

I haven't read the previous two books in the series, and I have a question, if anyone can answer it. Is there some overlap between book two and this one?? Only reading the blurb from that one, makes me think so. I would like, at some point, to go back and read those books, too, as well as other books by Ann Mayburn, as I've not read any before.

button About the author

With over forty published books, Ann is Queen of the Castle to her husband and three sons in the mountains of West Virginia. In her past lives she's been an Import Broker, a Communications Specialist, a US Navy Civilian Contractor, a Bartender/Waitress, and an actor at the Michigan Renaissance Festival. She also spent a summer touring with the Grateful Dead-though she will deny to her children that it ever happened. From a young Ann has had a love affair with books would read everything she could get her hands on. As Ann grew older, and her hormones kicked in, she discovered bodice ripping Fabio-esque romance novels. They were great at first, but she soon grew tired of the endless stories with a big wonderful emotional buildup to really short and crappy sex. Never a big fan of purple prose, throbbing spears of fleshy pleasure and wet honey pots make her giggle, she sought out books that gave the sex scenes in the story just as much detail and plot as everything else-without using cringe worthy euphemisms. This led her to the wonderful world of Erotic Romance, and she's never looked back. Now Ann spends her days trying to tune out cartoons playing in the background to get into her 'sexy space' and has accepted that her Muse has a severe case of ADD.
