Welcome Back Dakota Trace, or um Livvy the Muse

3744330 - napa valley vineyard sunset on a grunge background.*skips into the room, the slides to a halt*  “Hey, I’ve been here before!”

Of course you have, Livvy.  BL has always been gracious enough to let us visit during our blog hops. *turns to readers*  Hi, I’m Dakota, and that *points at corset wearing dominatrix* …happens to be my muse, Olivia…well, Livvy for short.  She gets a bit peeved when I call her by her namesakes first name.

*arches brow*  “Don’t even get me started on that woman, slave. She should mine her own damned business.”  *grins*  “Maybe I should go and visit Jude and Micah…they need a good shake up, and lord knows that woman needs to be kept on her toes…”

*groans*  No.  Don’t even think about it.  Or I’m not letting you in the club when we revisit Olivia’s for Carlos’s story….*takes a deep breath, ignoring muse’s squeal of protest.  “But we’re not here today to talk about Chicago.  Nope we’re here to talk about Thanksgiving in Napa – a little scavenger hunt I came up with to celebrate the release of my upcoming book, Benevolent Master.

“Yeah, the one I helped her write…which is why it only makes sense that I get my fudge before Alyce gets her pie….”

*shakes head*  Dear lord, not again.  We’ve already discussed this, Livvy. I’ll make your damned fudge AFTER I finish Alyce’s pumpkin pie. *holds out hand*  I almost got all the stuff I need, so cough up the pumpkin, chica….then I’ll think about making your fudge.

*pouts*  “I don’t wanna.”
*rolls eyes*  It’s either the flogger or the pumpkin, your choice.  I can always ask Kaleb or Davis to come in and give me a helping hand. They know exactly how to use a flogger on a woman…

*glares* “You wouldn’t dare!”

*holds out hand* Try me.

“Bitch!”  *But hands over can*pumpkin6

Thank you.  Now the readers can enter pumpkin into the rafflecopter for today’s entry. If they get drawn they will be the lucky winner of a signed set of print books (The Doms of Napa 1-3), that really cool flogger that Livvy’s hording at the moment, and some swag I’ll throw in as a bonus…I’ll be drawing the winner on the 19th and posting it on my  author FB page. *turns to muse*  Want to tell them about the sale?

*crosses arms over chest* “No…”

You know a pouting muse isn’t all that attractive, Livvy.

“I wouldn’t be pouting if you’d make my fudge, slave!”  *stomps off*

*sighs*  Such a drama queen….anyway, about that sale….up until release day, Benevolent Master will be at the low price of $2.99.  That’s almost half off of the original price $4.99.  So if you’re interested…click HERE.

We only have one item left to collect….can you guess what it is?  Well be sure to stop over at J.D. Nelson’s blog tomorrow for that final item.

A special thanks goes out to the lovely BLMorticia for allowing me and Livvy to hijack her blog today….*hugs*

Hugs back. Thanks for stopping in today ladies. Anytime you wanna hijack my place, let me know!

Welcome Dakota Trace to BL’s GIVEAWAY

DTGreetings peeps! I rarely have guests here but when I do they come with a bang! Heh. Please welcome Dakota Trace’s muses to the party today. Looks like they’re just as mischievous as we are!

“Hot damn! Did you see that ass?” *points to picture of two men wearing very little* “If I’d realized Ms. Morticia had such delicious eye candy, I’d have been stalking her weeks ago.”199

Bryan rolled his eyes. “I can’t believe I let Dakota talk me into this. You are absolutely demented.”

“Aw, come on.  Slave has been working my ass off.”  *bats eyelashes* “Beside you know you want to look. You might have two sexier than thou men at home but you’re not fn dead.”  *props hand on hip*

Bryan seemed to mutter something about horny muses before pleading with the leather wearing muse wandering around the room. “Livvy, please! Focus on what we’re supposed to be doing.  Dakota is counting on us. We’re not here to gawk at men. The book tour – remember?”

*pouts* “Fine, just ruin all my fun.”  *turns to group* “Can you believe this stick in the mud? I give him not just one but two sexy Doms and he’s now acting like a prude?  I mean if I didn’t know better, I’d swear he’s too straight laced to be kinky.”

“These nice people don’t care how kinky I am.  We’re supposed to be promoting Healing Hark, not talking about my sex life.”  Bryan squeezed the bridge of his nose.

*Laughs* “Of course they want to know about your sex life. That’s why they call it erotic romance.  But I’ll behave. For the moment.”  *points at self* If you haven’t figured it out I’m Dakota’s muse, Livvy.  And Mr. Prude over there is Bryan Sterling.  He’s one of the main characters of Dakota’s newest release.” *leans in*  “And believe it or not, he’s actually a sub. Personally I can’t believe she sent him with me. I really should’ve gotten Hark or maybe even the sexy Diachi. They could’ve handled me-“ UMPFF.

“Sorry about that.”  Bryan continued to hold his hand over Livvy’s mouth. “She’d rattle on and on about nothing if I let her.” He shook his head. “While that can be wonderful at times. We don’t want that today. TODAY we are here to celebrate the release of Healing Hark.  As a token of her appreciation, Ms. Dakota….”

A muffled sound came from under his hand. Then he yelped.

“Stop it!”  He leaned down to glare at the muse. “There will be no biting. Or I’m going to duct tape your scrawny butt to the ceiling. Are we understood?”


“Good.”  He slowly released Livvy. “As I was saying Ms. Dakota is being generous and giving away a book at each stop. Today’s is Nisey’s Awakening. And all you have to do is comment on the post and leave your email addy.  She’ll draw a winner tomorrow.”

“But don’t forget our grand prize there subby boy.  Slave is going to be giving away a complete set of the Doms of Chicago to one lucky winner at the Wrap Up party on the 25th..  That’s all eight books. You can find more out more HERE.”

Bryan clenched his teeth.  “I didn’t forget. It’s pretty easy to enter. Just put the number of in the lower right hand of the meme card into the rafflecopter entry form.  It will earn you one entry into the grand prize.”

*muse nods* “Yep it’s so easy a monkey could do it.  Or a silly boy sub like Bryan here.”  *winks at Bryan*

Bryan sighs.  “I’m not even going to justify that with an answer.  Just be sure to enter.”  *pulls out box of chocolate* “Dakota said to leave this for you, Ms. Morticia. Enjoy.”

“Wait…” *muse protests as Bryan carries her off.* “Slave didn’t say anything about chocolate…BL won’t miss just one piece…”

Author note:

Thanks to the lovely Ms. Morticia for allowing my crazy muse to stop by with her usual antics. For those who are interested…below is a blurb and buy links for Healing Hark – which just released today.  And don’t forget to stop by Renee George’s blog tomorrow for another chance to enter for the grand prize drawing.



 Can their love survive healing him?

Despite being in a long-term relationship with his Master and lover, Diachi Rai, CEO Bryan Sterling is feeling restless, and it all has to do with his Master’s former submissive. Ever since Harkalone “Hark” Akula entered their home, Bryan’s life has been turned upside down. He’s acting out, standing up to his master – even courting punishment. All because of his need to help Hark.

Diachi is a man of many secrets, and Hark happens to be one of his darkest. As his first submissive, Hark was partially responsible for molding him into the powerful but discerning Dom he’s become. But when he was unable to give Hark what he needed, Diachi let Hark go, rather than share him. Now Hark is back, scarred and darker than Diachi could ever remember him being, and in dire need of a healing touch.

Hark is at the end of his tether. After losing his family: his Dom, their submissive and child along with his home, all he wants is to be left alone, not dropped in his former master’s lap like a child. But now that he’s there, he’s not only tempted by Diachi and Bryan, he’s also being drawn into their world. The question now, is will he be able to stay?

You Gotta Read



I haven’t done YGR in a while.

While Shar is writing novels, she reads short novellas in the meantime to keep her mind active

Especially books that have something to do with what she and one of us will be writing.

This week, we touched all bases

Push is Sara York’s threesome she read as another take on a threesome relationship

Love Without Restraint to get some insight on writing a romance with a disabled lover.

Double Take for the twincest

And Cash is a rock and roller demon/angel story

We really enjoyed that one.

Check these all out when you can!
