From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Lexi Blake comes a new story in her Masters and Mercenaries series…
A snarky submissive princess
Sarah Stevens’s life is pretty sweet. By day, she’s a dedicated trauma nurse and by night, a fun-loving club sub. She adores her job, has a group of friends who have her back, and is a member of the hottest club in Dallas. So why does it all feel hollow? Could it be because she fell for her dream man and can’t forgive him for walking away from her? Nope. She’s not going there again. No matter how much she wants to.
A prince of the silver screen
Jared Johns might be one of the most popular actors in Hollywood, but he lost more than a fan when he walked away from Sarah. He lost the only woman he’s ever loved. He’s been trying to get her back, but she won’t return his calls. A trip to Dallas to visit his brother might be exactly what he needs to jump-start his quest to claim the woman who holds his heart.
A masquerade to remember
For Charlotte Taggart’s birthday, Sanctum becomes a fantasyland of kinky fun and games. Every unattached sub gets a new Dom for the festivities. The twist? The Doms must conceal their identities until the stroke of midnight at the end of the party. It’s exactly what Sarah needs to forget the fact that Jared is pursuing her. She can’t give in to him, and the mysterious Master D is making her rethink her position when it comes to signing a contract. Jared knows he was born to play this role, dashing suitor by day and dirty Dom at night.
When the masks come off, will she be able to forgive the man who loves her, or will she leave him forever?
**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**
Would you believe that one of my all time favourite series has more than 18 books set in its world; and they do not include any of the spin off series that have evolved from – The Masters and Mercenaries Series is still going strong; and somehow not a single of the books have lost their charm; or their magic for me.
ENCHANTED is a novella based in the Masters and Mercenaries world; but on the peripheral characters – Jared Johns, a successful actor and heartthrob and Sarah Stevens, a trauma nurse by day and a submissive by night.
Jared and Sarah once shared something special between them, but the fact they were involved in a serial killer situation. Consequently, Jared broke the heart of the only woman he has ever loved, and Sarah lost the trust and easiness of opening herself to any romantic possibility since.
With the realisation of what he has exactly lost, Jared goes all out to win back the woman he loves, the only woman he has ever loved when Sanctum, a club they both are part of, provides the only opportunity he just might ever have.
Enchanted is all about missed opportunities, communication, the want and need of a love that is pure and oh so desired and badasses going all out for the happiness of people they care about.
Also, the fact that we get some hilarious, adorable and delightful cameos by some of the favourite characters; characters we have journeyed with from the start as well as a glimpse of their lives – it felt like I was finally home.
Enchanted is another brilliant addition to a series that somehow just keeps getting better and better!

Charlotte Taggart felt the baby fluttering in her belly and a deep sense of peace filled her. She genuinely enjoyed being pregnant. It wasn’t for everyone. Her sister hated it, and Simon was going to have to be happy with the only kiddo he would ever share with Chelsea. Her friend Kori had vowed to never be pregnant, and it worked for her and Kai. They had a whole lot of dogs and it filled the need for them. The truth was there was no one way to have a family.
But damn she loved hers—all of them. She loved the ones she shared blood with and the ones she’d chosen. She was blessed beyond measure.
It made her feel the need to give back.
Soft baby snuffles came from the monitor, letting her know her son was still sleeping. She’d given up keeping a monitor in the twins’ room since they’d gotten big enough to simply come and ask for what they needed. Too many times she overheard plans for world domination and it kept her up at night.
The son in her stomach twisted again, but it wasn’t anywhere close to uncomfortable yet. That was still months away. For now, his kicks felt like waves across her belly.
Soft light illuminated the kitchen and she couldn’t help but think about how far she’d come from the child she’d been. Moscow didn’t have many sunny days, but here in Dallas the light seemed to always be around her.
Light and love and laughter.
“He giving you hell, baby?” The question rumbled against the nape of her neck and she was pulled back against the hard planes of her husband’s body. He’d gone to bed wearing nothing at all, but she knew he would have slid his strong legs into pajama bottoms or sweat pants before he’d left the room. His chest, however, was still warm and bare. “You’re up early. Or were you trying to sneak in some quiet time before the monsters awaken?”
Nothing ever felt as good as that moment when Ian took her in his arms. And he was right. She loved her three kiddos. Kenzie and Kala and Seth. Soon there would be four, and she wasn’t so foolish as to believe her baby girls wouldn’t immediately start training their youngest brother in how to take on the parents. But that wasn’t what had gotten her out of bed. “I was plotting.”
She could feel him smile against her shoulder, where he was currently laying soft kisses and getting her hot and bothered. He pushed her hair to the side to give himself better access.
“I love it when you plot. Is this a bloody, take-no-prisoners plot where I get to murder people? Because it’s been a long time.”
“I can always trust Lexi Blake’s Dominants to leave me breathless…and in love. If you want sensual, exciting BDSM wrapped in an awesome love story, then look for a Lexi Blake book.”
~ Cherise Sinclair New York Times bestselling author
“Lexi Blake’s MASTERS AND MERCENARIES series is beautifully written and deliciously hot. She’s got a real way with both action and sex. I also love the way Blake writes her gorgeous Dom heroes–they make me want to do bad, bad things. Her heroines are intelligent and gutsy ladies whose taste for submission definitely does not make them dish rags. Can’t wait for the next book!”
~ Angela Knight, New York Times bestselling author
“I can’t get enough of the Masters and Mercenaries Series! Love and Let Die is Lexi Blake at her best!

Intense, heart pounding, and erotically fulfilling, I could not put this book down.”

~ Robin, Sizzling Hot Books
“I have absolutely fallen in love with this series. Spies, espionage, and intrigue all packaged up in a hot dominant male package. All the men at McKay-Taggart are smoking hot and the women are amazingly strong sexy submissives.”
