About the book:
Liam Gallagher was one of the most notorious hackers in the cyber world. Known for his high profile hacks and superior cleanup skills. Until he got pinched, and hit with a forty-eight month sentence for a crime the feds still can't quite figure out.

Taking Pierce Eaglemohr's offer to work for Hawk Global Industries, in exchange for his hacker skills, was a no-brainer. His only other option was to stay in jail, with the threat of not making it out alive. There was only one condition. No past, no memories. With no real friends or family tying him down, he takes the deal and assumes a new identity working as the head of IT for one of the fastest growing corporations in the defense industry.

But he wasn't the only one.

Part of a trio of ex-cons, Glitch's tasks increased in level of danger and risk until he was just as lethal with a keyboard as he was with a gun. Together, his partners in crime formed a bond so tight that it helped to make up for the family and friends they left behind. The work was easy, the money was good, and they were out of jail so life was good.

When a simple hack job turned wrong ends with him face to face with a tech savvy beauty from his past, he realizes for the first time how much he gave up. And how little Eagle values his work or his life. When Glitch learns that the very man who gave him a new start is the one who is threatening to take it all away, he devises a plan for the trio to retire into obscurity.

Now, he leads the Hitman crew on their task of breaking out of the nasty web of corruption that Eagle has ensnared them in. Things are going to get pretty nasty along the way, even a little sexy, but it's all in a day's work for a Corporate Hitman.

EXCERPT


From the driver’s seat, Glitch strained to see what was happening in the rearview mirror while trying to keep his eye on traffic. His tension was growing by the minute, and something about the little exchange between their mark and Scratch had set him off. There was something about that voice, and the fact that he only knew one woman who liked to call men nut sack lickers.


The loud blaring horn of a garbage truck snapped him back to attention as he swerved to keep from crashing with the truck head on.



“Jesus Christ,” Scratch bellowed from the back of the van. “Yo! You need to get a fucking grip,” he continued to bark at Glitch.



“Get her name,” Glitch demanded, ignoring Scratch's outburst.



“You just watch the fucking road and let me do my job,” Scratch retorted.



“Just ask her fucking name!” Glitch was wired from the anxiety and excitement pumping through his veins. His instincts were never wrong, and right now they were telling him exactly who the woman with the stellar computer skills and potty mouth was. He just wanted confirmation.



Scratch and Jack exchanged confused glances at Glitch’s outburst.



“You heard him, Doll. Tell the nice man your name,” Scratch ordered. He would wait until later to deal with whatever was up Glitch’s ass. He glared at the woman expectantly. Waiting for her to curse him again or refuse, but her entire expression changed when she heard Glitch’s voice. As if she’d seen a ghost.



“Hex,” she whispered. Her face now anxious as she chewed her bottom lip.



“What?” Both Scratch and Glitch asked at the same time.



“She said Hex,” Jack added. He was now eyeing her with thinly veiled suspicion.



Glitch felt his blood run cold. He knew it. The way the hacker had mirrored his own program against him. The way they taunted him, only running their rogue program after business hours.  Hex was the only hacker who had ever challenged him like that. She was also the only woman who ever held his interest. Made him feel things that he thought he was immune to.



When he got locked up, there was no way he could contact her without getting her involved in his mess. Any contact would have led the cops straight to her, and Glitch wouldn’t have that. He’d rather man up and take the fall to protect her. But when Eagle brokered his deal to freedom, one of the consequences was to sever all ties to his past. That meant no going back, so he never contacted her again. He felt it was safer that way, for both of them.



Now, here she was. Tied up and terrified as Scratch and Jack looked like they are about to nullify her life expectancy. They had no idea who she was or what she meant to him. But he knew, and a flood of memories assaulted him as if to make sure. The way she laughed at all his corny jokes. The funny faces she would make when she taunted him about his work. The many nights they spent chatting via webcam until her eyes were heavy with sleep. The longing he had for her had never gone away. And now she was here.



“Wait,” Glitch called out. Making a quick right turn, he pulled into the parking lot of a hardware store. The van wouldn’t stick out like a sore thumb here. Cutting the engine, Glitch took a deep breath before handing the keys to an already high-strung Jack, giving him something else to do besides focusing on how he could inflict bodily harm to Hex.



“What the hell are you doing?” Jack’s razor sharp tone sliced through the thick air in the van. Scratch was trying to keep an eye on their mark, but kept glancing between Glitch and Jack as the tension mounted between them.



“Yo, Glitch. What are you doing, man?” Scratch’s voice was wary. He knew that whatever was going on wasn’t part of the plan, and that was never a good thing. Especially coming from Glitch, who was the most sensible and emotionally tempered one out of the three. While all three shared a bond, Scratch and Glitch had grown really tight. He knew something was going on with Glitch, and his friend hadn’t told him.



“Just let me get back there and I’ll explain. Jack, you drive.” Glitch didn’t want to waste any more time bickering with Jack. That would get too ugly.



With a glare that let Glitch know that he better not fuck things up, Jack snatched the keys and they switched places.



Glitch couldn’t believe his eyes. It was really her, and she was more beautiful than he remembered. Her dark curly hair was now restrained into a bun, but the fire dancing in her eyes was still there. Everything about her called to him. The long eyelashes that framed her cat like slits. The deep tan skin. Same sultry voice.



Their eyes connected and he saw the fear shining in hers, but also a glimmer of something else. Something that said maybe he wasn’t the only one harboring their past as a special place in his heart. As much as he hated to admit it, he had feelings for Hex back then, and he still did.



“This better be good,” Scratch mumbled as Glitch took a seat next to him. Glitch just nodded, and turned his full attention to Hex. Breaking their stare-down, he spoke first.



“You want to explain to me what you were doing?” He’d wanted to say something smooth, to let her know that he would make sure she was safe. That he was happy to see her, but he couldn’t with Scratch watching his every move. Since he didn’t know her angle yet, there was no use in making promises.



“I told you I would always find you,” she responds.



Wrong answer. Terrible answer.

About the book:  

Wealthy computer genius Graham Winters is in love with a woman who won’t join him for a stingy cup of coffee. How can he prove he’s nothing like her jerk of an ex if she won’t give him a chance? Then he spots her at a BDSM club and devises a plan. During the day, he’s “that damn geek.” At night, he’s the masked Dom known as The Wolf.

When it comes to her love life, Lucy Sanchez has one rule—no geeks. Not even rich, good looking geeks. She’s attracted to Graham but rules are rules. Besides, she has her wolf, the mysterious Dom who makes her blood sing. Then she’s invited to a fairytale event at Pleasure Manor and this Little Red Riding Hood plans to enjoy every delicious moment with her big, bad Dom.




Excerpt



Lucy stared at him. “I’ve never had a partner as good as you.”

He lowered his head and kissed her. “We fit.” Sex. Dance. And even their work, though she didn’t know that. So many things in common, like hiking in the woods, searching for and finding birds and other wildlife, not to mention some spontaneous sex. Hug a tree took on a new meaning. His heart ached for him to tell her the truth and claim her openly.

The music faded, and he leaned back. “Lucy—”

The sound of loud clapping broke the spell. He swung them around and saw the Queen Domme standing at the open doorway. “You two are magnificent.” She glided into the room.

He bowed. “Thank you, Glorie.”

Lucy leaned into her wolf, unconsciously seeking his comforting embrace. She smiled awkwardly and fully admitted she was still embarrassed that the woman had joined them for a threesome. Every time she saw the woman, she’d remember how good the Domme was at giving pleasure and how her Wolf had known her well enough, cared enough, to make her fantasies come true.

“Tomorrow night, you’ll dance for us?”

Lucy inclined her head. “We’d love that.”

Minutes later, tired but satisfied, Lucy’s wolf her back through the garden and down one of several paths that led into the woods. Each couple had specific routes and play areas so as not to disturb anyone else with their weekend. 

AUTHOR Bio and Links:
Sydney St. Claire is the pseudonym of Susan Edwards, author of 14 Historical Native American/Western/Paranormal romances and the author of the popular “White” Series.

Sydney loves writing and sharing stories of love, happiness and dreams come true with her readers. She credits her mother for her writing success.  Encouraged to read as a child, she always preferred happy endings which meant romances were her favorite genre.  Sydney takes her readers into the world of erotica romance where her characters come together in explosive passion as they solve life’s problems and find true love along with the best sex our hero and heroine have ever experienced.

Sydney’s office is quite crowded with three dogs at her feet and five cats to keep her company while she writes. Three cats always insist on beds on her desk, barely leaving enough room for her monitor and keyboard. Life gets fun when all five insist on supervising…

When not writing, she enjoys crafts of all sorts including quilting, sewing, cross-stitch and knitting. She and her husband of 30 + years are avid gardeners. He takes care of the veggies, and Susan is in charge of the ‘pretties’. Her medicine wheel garden is in a contact state of war: flowers vs. weeds. Sadly, right now the weeds are wining…

While writing, she listens to a wide variety of music. Her current favorites are Blackmore’s Night and David Lanz.

A contemporary BDSM take on the children’s fairy tale, Little Red Riding Hood, Red & Her Big Bad Dom by Sydney St. Claire is definitely a red hot read.  A geek who’s secretly a Dom and a secretary who’s secretly a sub take center stage at a large private estate for a 3 day “play” session involving costumes, masked faces and even some dancing.  While the second book in the Once Upon a Dom series, this book can be read and enjoyed on its own.

A successful secretary to a very wealthy businessman, Lucy Sanchez has been burned by love in the past. Determined to enjoy her life and get what she wants out of it, she joined a BDSM club not realizing it was owned by her boss.  While she doesn’t like to mix business and pleasure she can’t help falling for one of the Doms.  A Dom who wears a mask and who she knows only as “The Wolf”.  Looking forward to an upcoming play session, Lucy refuses the attentions of Graham Winters, a geek and one of the VPs at work.

Determined to see Lucy outside of work, Graham Winters will do whatever it takes to make her change her mind.  When he sees her at his friend’s private BDSM club and realizes she’s a natural sub, he’s determined to be her Dom.  Hiding his identity under a mask, Graham becomes “The Wolf” and sets out to capture Lucy’s heart.

Ms. St. Claire does a pretty good job developing Lucy and Graham’s character right from the start.  Quickly jumping into their sexual relationship, Ms. St. Claire really pumps up the heat with several “fantasy” scenes where Graham aka “The Wolf” indulges Lucy’s desire for new experiences- even to the point of bringing in a third.  While their “romantic” relationship takes a back burner at the beginning, it soon becomes clear that Lucy and Graham have more than just amazing physical chemistry growing between them. . 

The secondary characters, mostly other people at the club or at their job, are fleshed out enough to be interesting and I enjoyed getting to know Jaimie, Lucy’s best friend, and Bryce, Lucy and Graham’s boss and the owner of the BDSM club.  Jaimie and Bryce  also happen to be the main characters in Cinderella & Prince Dom, the first book in this series.

Will Lucy figure out that her “Wolf” is really Graham?  Will Graham tell Lucy the truth before she decides to walk away?  Will the love developing between them get a chance to be a real relationship and not just play?  You’ll have to read Red & Her Big Bad Dom to find out. I enjoyed it and look forward to reading more of this author’s work.

My Rating:  3.5 out of 5 Stars

About the book:

Overwhelmed by shame after a dodgy one-night stand, Abby Henderson finds herself in Niagara Falls and hopes sexy barista Ben Pryor can help extinguish her ever present guilt. When a letter arrives from home, turning her life upside down, she realizes her holiday fling actually feels a lot more like the real thing.

Long-distance romance proves harder than Abby thought, and with crazy advice from fortune tellers to 'follow the scent', she finds herself forced to choose between her rising career and the man she loves.


Content Warning: contains some sexual content and explicit language








"Are you here for long?" he asked.

Abby couldn't take her eyes off his hands as they prepared the milk for her coffee. They were so big and…able. "I'll be here for three days, but I might stay longer if I like it."

"Of course you'll like it! What's not to like?"

She laughed. "Well, I like it so far, not that I've seen much yet."

"Perhaps you need a tour guide," he suggested, flicking his eyes up to hers for the briefest moment before returning to the task at hand.

"Are you offering your services?" Abby couldn't believe her flirty tone. This behavior was most unlike her, must be the lack of caffeine in her body.

He poured the delicious smelling coffee into a mug, not the take-away cup she'd intended. Had she forgotten to ask? Quite probably. She was rather distracted.

"It just so happens I have the day off tomorrow, and as one of my civic duties I would be more than willing to show you around."

Abby suddenly returned to her senses. "I'm sure you don't want to waste your day off on a random stranger, so I decline and let you off the hook."

He shook his head and smiled while working the milky top of her latte. "It's really no trouble. Actually, it would be my pleasure. I'm Ben, by the way." He pushed the mug toward her.

Abby rummaged through her pockets for some change, hoping like mad it was all right to use American coins in Canada.

"Forget it, it's on the house," Ben said, running a hand through that crop of messy hair. Abby could feel heat rising in her cheeks and couldn't think of a single thing to say. Who was this strange Adonis-like man offering her free coffee and sightseeing?

"Um," she mumbled, fairly certain it was her turn to speak but completely unable to remember the question. Had there even been a question?

She looked down at the coffee in front of her. The pattern of the frothy milk had been shaped into a heart. Her insides gave an unexpected twinge, and she moved her gaze up to take another peek at Ben. He was smiling, showing off a set of lovely white teeth with a barely noticeable chip off one of the front ones. She guessed he hadn't shaved in a few days as a definite beard was starting to form along his jaw line. It was very sexy.

"So, what do you say?" he urged. "As a local I can show you all the best spots."

Abby knew she was staring. The underside of that jaw was a marvelous view. She forced herself to blink. "Well, okay. But only if you're sure you don't mind."

"Great! How about we meet at nine o'clock tomorrow morning, right here?"

"All right. Thanks, Ben."

"And you are?"

"Oh, sorry. I'm Abby. Abby Henderson." As she spoke a group of customers entered the café. Ben looked disappointed by their arrival. "I'll leave you to it," she said softly. "Thanks for the coffee. See you tomorrow."

Abby sat down at a table at the back of the café and took a sip from her mug, taking a good portion of the carefully constructed heart shape into her mouth. It was delicious, and she relaxed back into her seat, feeling the effects of her long day of travel, yet buoyed up by the encounter with Ben. It had been way too long since anyone had asked her out, and it felt lovely to receive such attention. Ben was undeniably gorgeous and seemed like a nice enough guy. Her loony spotting radar was decidedly quiet, so that was a good sign. And there was no denying she was attracted to him. The man was gorgeous. Good enough to eat! She'd practically had to grip the counter bench he'd stood behind to stop herself from launching over to lick his face like an ice cream.

She sat back in her chair and waited, knowing it wouldn't take long. Yep, sure enough, there it was. The all too familiar guilt. She did not deserve to be going on a lovely date tomorrow with lickable Ben. After what she'd done she deserved nothing more than to be single and miserable for the rest of her life. Squeezing her eyes tightly shut, Abby held her breath, trying to prevent negative thoughts from infiltrating on her previously chipper mood. Would she ever be able to move on from her mistake? How could she cleanse herself from all the crap that constantly swamped her? Maybe going with Ben tomorrow was a way to help her move on. She sure as hell hoped so.




I love writing all kinds of stories but romance is definitely my favorite. Curling up with my laptop on a cold winter's day is my idea of writing heaven, and if there's coffee and chocolate close by that's even better.

I'm always on the lookout for story and character ideas and am inspired by everyday things like people doing their grocery shopping, having morning tea at the local café, or the beautiful 'welcome back' hugs and kisses at the arrivals gate at the airport. Makes me cry just thinking about it!

I live in Canberra, Australia with my husband, and whenever I can, I snatch time to write between being a mum to our three young boys and my job as a social worker.
My first ebook, The View from Here, was released in 2013.
