Blurb: Master Saul is captivated by the beautifully submissive Kenneth and the boy’s love of pain. Unfortunately, Kenneth belongs to Master Preston.

It’s 1926 and as one of the founding members of the Hampton Road Club, Master Saul Liebowitz has enjoyed the charms of many willing submissives over the years. One of the newer submissives to the club has captured his attention more than anyone has in a long time. Kenneth is tall, muscular and also seems to have a greater love of pain than most. If only Kenneth didn’t already belong to another Master.

After Kenneth’s Master died years before, he allowed himself to be taken in by the promises of Master Preston. As time has gone by, Preston has become increasingly crueler to the point where Kenneth fears for his life. They’ve recently joined a sadomasochism club and Kenneth can’t help but yearn for the handsome Master the other boys speak so highly of—Master Saul.

Preston takes things too far one night, and when Saul and his good friend, Master Aaron, do some investigating, they realize that Kenneth might be in real danger. Amidst turmoil at the club over whether there should be rules to keep the boys safe and Preston’s play for power, Saul searches for a way to save Kenneth from what he’s sure is a deadly situation.

Both men fight for what they believe to be the right thing. When they find their way to one another, a wonderful new world opens up to them. But there’s one man out there who refuses to let go of the old ways. Kenneth is his property and Master Preston won’t give him up.

Review: This is book two and best read in order.

Ever since his best friend Aaron has found his perfect submissive and love, Saul is feeling lonely. He thinks because of his age he will never find what he desires most. He admires the new submissive, Kenneth and the way he handles pain.  He wishes the man was his, but he is taken by a new member, Preston that he doesn’t like.

Preston is violent and doesn’t allow his subs to call for mercy. He is mean and doesn’t treat them as people. One of the subs flees from him and one of the other submissives notices. After an investigation, Saul discovered that Kenneth is being threatened and held against his will.  He and some of the other Dominates try to come up with a way to free him, but it will cost Saul some secrets he didn’t want to reveal and possibly the Hampton Road Club.

I loved this book. I loved all the characters and liked that we got more of Aaron, Sam, Francesco, Theodore, and Thomas. The plot is better in this book than the first, and the sex is pretty hot. I have the third ready to read! I can’t wait to see whose story is next!

The only thing I wish was more of would be the 1920’s theme. To me, it kind of got lost in this book but having said that…The book was still awesome!

Warning for the squeamish:  There are rape and dubious consent scenes, but Morticia handled with finesse.

If you like BDSM, D’s relationships, Dubious consent, good romance, Older men/younger men, and some scorching hot man-sex you will love this series!

Blurb: A feisty, untrained Dominant shows up at Hampton Road. Could he be the right man who Colin’s been saving himself for?
Submissive Colin loves his new life and job at The Hampton Road Club. He doesn’t mean to make the staff angry when he reorganizes everything or frustrate the available Masters by never letting them touch him. He only wants to serve someone, to make them happy, but he’s also waiting for the right man the way his grandmother had advised him to do before she died.

Another night, another brawl. Roddy had hoped that Hollywood would have better male prospects than Louisville when it came to playing rough. When Roddy’s latest would-be conquest threatens him with bodily harm, Roddy is chased right into the path of two of Hampton Road’s Masters, Ned and Aaron. They describe a wonderful club to him, where sadomasochistic men can enjoy each other, hidden safely behind the walls of an elegant mansion.

The moment Colin and Roddy spot each other, they fall hard and fast. While Master Saul is thrilled that Colin has finally found someone, what do any of them really know about their new guest?
It seems that Saul’s fears are ungrounded until tragedy strikes in Roddy’s world. It’s then that the validity of Colin and Roddy’s new love is truly tested.

Was their bond real, or did Roddy have another agenda he’d kept secret all along?

Review: If the cover isn’t hot enough to make you pick this up, and the blurb doesn’t entice you more than let me tell you…just do it! That is if you like mild BDSM and very sweet romance.

I fell in love sweet little Colin in the last book when he was brought in by Ned. Who wouldn’t love a darling little fella that wants to save himself until he meets the right man, yet yearns to taste the life he sees around him? Plus, as sweet as he is there is a touch of mischief and his OCD is too cute.

Now let’s toss in a young man who likes sex a bit rough and ends up getting roughed up every time he tries to fulfill his need. Being gay in the 20’s is bad enough…liking things a little rougher is…well, rougher.

We get a bit more Aaron and Ned and, of course, Saul. I loved seeing Saul’s fatherly instincts come to the forefront. This book is a bit milder than the rest BDSM and Sadomasochism wise as we have to men learning to love and to explore this side of themselves.
If you like a really sweet romance, the 1920’s setting, first times, true love, love at first sight and some pretty hot man-sex you will love this.

Note: This is book 5 in the series and is best read in order though this one you could possibly follow OK, I still recommend you read them in order to understand and know all the characters better.

Blurb: Master Thomas sees a submissive man aching for surrender if only Linus can be convinced not to fear The Hampton Road Club.
Linus never wants to return to Hampton Road after being attacked by a Master there. Even though he aches for the attention of Master Thomas—the one who he’d originally wanted—he isn’t sure he can ever trust another Master not to abuse him again.

Thomas is furious with himself for not protecting the beautiful young submissive whose company he’d enjoyed on a few occasions. He’s relieved that there have been some recent changes to help protect the men who offer themselves at the sadomasochism club. It’s about time to bring Hampton Road into the progressive age of the 1920’s. Now that the new rules are in place, perhaps he can woo Linus into giving him a chance.

As Thomas goes out of his way to be kind to him, Linus wonders if he’s misjudged the Master. He’s still not sure if there’s a future for them. What if he never wants to surrender to another man? When he allows Thomas to teach him the joys of Dominance and submission, Linus discovers that he not only wants to surrender, he wants to be claimed permanently. If only Thomas’ old life doesn’t come back to haunt them and destroy their chance of being together forever.

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of figging and piercing.

Review: Tomas has recently been hurt by the man he loved. His last sub left him for another. He has had his eye on Linus but realizing too late his feelings, Linus gets hurt. Hurt enough to make him afraid of dominate men, and the Hampton Road Club.

Linus was wary of the Hampton Road Club when his date brought him there and still not sure why Ned thought this would be the place for Linus. When he was under the control of master Thomas, Linus felt things he never thought he would…or should. Then things went to hell in a handbasket for Linus. (you need to read book two to see what happened.)

Both men need something the other could give. Both men are afraid to reach out and take what is right in front of them. Will Linus ever be able to submit again? Will Thomas ever be able to love again?

The Fear of Surrender is book three of the Hampton Road Club, and you do need to read this series in order as there are recurring characters and the story lines. This book you especially need to read book two. I like how each Dominate in this series is so different. Each has his needs, and it shows. Thomas doesn’t want a 24/7 sub like Saul and Aaron.

I also liked that this book stepped out of the club a lot and showed more about the feelings of these two men. I loved Thomas before now I am even more in love!

This book did have more of the 1920’s feel I missed in the last book with the houses and cars and other nuances. I absolutely love this series and am ready to dive into the next book.

Warning this is BDSM. There are some fetishes in each book. This one has figging and piercing. Both scenes were tastefully written and scorching hot.

Hesitant Heart

(The Hampton Road Club 01)

Morticia Knight

Sam is a naïve young man who arrives in Hollywood to escape his brutal father. When the older, sophisticated Aaron rescues him, Sam discovers what it means to fully surrender himself to another.

Eighteen year-old Sam Cunningham is used to living with lots of secrets. He’s had to hide his true nature his entire life or else incur the wrath of his strict and abusive father. When he’s faced with a horrible ultimatum, he flees to Hollywood where he hopes he can escape the fate his father has planned for him.

Aaron Rubenstein is a wealthy and sophisticated man who loses himself in painting portraits of bound men to help stave off his loneliness and despair. Unable to find a lasting connection with anyone, he’s had to resort to paying lovers not only for their affections, but to be allowed to indulge in his darker passions. Aaron’s only respite is his nights at the Hampton Road sadomasochism club where he’s a respected Dominant.

Naïve and inexperienced in the ways men can please one another, Sam takes a job at a bathhouse where he first glimpses a beautiful older man. Aaron notices the sweet towel boy watching him with interest every time he patronizes the Temple of Eros bathhouse. A traumatic incident for the innocent towel boy triggers Aaron’s protective tendencies and he’s compelled to rescue the gentle Sam from the clutches of the Temple’s manager.

They embark on a journey together that teaches them both things about themselves that they never knew. As their bond deepens and Sam is trained for his first night at the Hampton Road Club, an unknown danger lurks. Will Sam’s father find him and destroy both men’s chance for true happiness together? Or will Aaron protect his boy and keep him for always?

Reader Advisory: This book contains a scene of branding.

Publisher’s Note: This book is best read in sequence as part of a series.
