Mastered 2 Box Set Author Spotlight: Jenna’s Punishment by Ruby Foxx

mastered quote card ruby foxx

Welcome to the our Mastered 2 author spotlight series! I hope the new box set filled your dreams with lovely visions of Doms and decadent discovery. I know it kept me up late, that’s for sure! Today we’ll be looking at Jenna’s Punishment by Ruby Foxx.


Some secrets are worth pursuing, especially when discovering them means you might be punished in Jenna’s Punishment by @TheRubyFoxx #Mastered2 box set!

My gaze fell on the forbidden door and curiosity poked at me.  I knew he had a stash of keys in his kitchen drawer and I bet one of them was for the lock on this door.  I bit my lip, toying with the idea of grabbing those keys and looking inside.

What would it hurt?  He’d never have to know.

And I really wanted to know what was inside.

I turned and walked into the kitchen, then grabbed the keys and returned to the hallway.  The third key fit in the lock.

I hesitated, knowing I shouldn’t really do this.

But curiosity won out and I turned the key.  I pushed the door open and peered inside, but it was dark in the room.  Were there no windows?

I reached along the wall, searching for a light switch.  My fingers found it and I flicked on the light.

My eyes widened.  The room was big and at first I couldn’t even comprehend what I was seeing.  I stepped inside.

There was a black leather couch and a big black cupboard on one wall.  There was strange furniture around the room that I didn’t really understand, but many had big steel rings fastened to them, some with leather straps attached, and others with chains.

There were chains on the wall, too, at just the right height for a person.  In the corner, there was a tall, narrow cage.

I walked to the cabinet and opened one of the doors.  Inside, I was shocked to find what looked like floggers, riding crops, and paddles in different shapes and sizes.  I reached out and touched one of the suede floggers with one-inch wide strands.  It was a beautiful shade of purple, and the suede was soft under my fingertips.

“I told you not to come in here.”

I twirled around at the sound of Cade’s voice.  He stood in the doorway looking big and menacing.

“I’m… uh… sorry.”

There was no way to explain away what I’d done.  I had blatantly defied his wishes, and now I’d been caught.

He frowned as he stepped into the room.

“Now you must think I’m some kind of freak.  Or pervert,” he said.

“No, of course not.  I would never think that about you.”

His eyebrow arched.  “Then what do you think?”  He raised his hand and gestured around the room.  “About all of this?”

I turned back to the cupboard and touched the suede flogger again, loving the softness of it.

“I think that it shows you’re adventurous in the bedroom.  That you like to try new, exciting things.”

He closed the door behind him and stepped toward me.  “And what about you, Jenna?  Do you like exciting, adventurous things in the bedroom?”

As he approached, like a panther stalking his prey, my heart raced.

“Well… uh…”  I drew in a breath.  “Sure, I guess so.”

As I glanced around the room at all the strange equipment, however, my stomach fluttered in uncertainty.  But I knew deep inside that I totally trusted Cade.

“You don’t sound too certain.”

“Well, it totally depends on who I’m with.”  Then I smiled seductively.  “With you, for instance, I would be very adventurous.”

He stopped in front of me and placed his hands on my shoulders.

“You know, Jenna.  I told you that you and I wouldn’t happen.  Remember?”

Disappointment flooded through me and I nodded.

“And I told you not to come in this room. Right?”

I nodded again, feeling very sheepish.

“Say ‘yes, sir’ so I know you understand.”

“Yes, sir.”

Then his hand glided along my shoulders and down my arms, sending tremors of awareness through me.

“Since you chose to ignore what I told you, I think there have to be consequences.”

Consequences?  Was he going to fire me?

But the heat in his eyes and the velvety tone of his voice assured me otherwise.

“Like what?”  Then I added, “Sir.”

A slow smile spread across his face.

“I will have to punish you.”


Mastered 2 Box Set Author Spotlight: His Touch by Karen Fenech

Mastered2 Quote Card KarenFenech

Welcome to the our Mastered 2 author spotlight series! I hope the new box set filled your dreams with lovely visions of Doms and decadent discovery. I know it kept me up late, that’s for sure! Today we’ll be looking at His Touch by Karen Fenech


After her life is shattered by her Dom, can Corinne trust another man with her submission and her heart in His Touch by @karenfenech in the #Mastered2 box set!

Nate reached across the table and engulfed her hand with his much larger one. He brought it to his lips and pressed a kiss to her palm. “I like that you worry about me.”

Before Corinne could do more than register his touch, the feel of his lips against her skin, Nate lowered her hand to the table and released her. Before she could panic, she thought. He touched her from time to time but never more than a quick brush of his fingers. He’d been around her enough to know that since Steven, she’d come to fear a man’s touch. To her shame, even Nate’s touch made her feel afraid. Nate who’d never been anything but good to her.

Had her expression given her away? Nate seemed to be studying her now, watching her face for every flicker of movement.

His body tensed and his gaze grew intent on her. “I want to talk about what happened at The Club.”

Her hands tightened on the mug and any warmth she’d been feeling evaporated.

“I knew you were back in Blake,” Nate said. “Your dad let me know that you were coming.”

Corinne couldn’t say it surprised her that her father would tell Nate she was returning to Blake, despite explaining to her dad that she didn’t want to impose on Nate any longer. Her father worried about her and having Nate look in on her and look out for her would give her father some peace of mind.

“I knew you were at The Club tonight,” Nate went on. “I hoped you coming back to Blake signaled a fresh start for you. I thought you may find your way to Lazarus’s place and I asked him to call me if you showed up there. When he called me, I went there specifically to see you.”

She didn’t know what to make of that.

Nate leaned forward, over the table that lay between them. “I was glad you went there. But I had no intention of letting you play or letting you leave there with anyone.” He pinned her with his gaze. “Anyone but me. When you give your submission to a man, I will be that man.”

Welcome to the our Mastered 2 author spotlight series! I hope the new box set filled your dreams with lovely visions of Doms and decadent discovery. I know it kept me up late, that’s for sure! Today we’ll be looking at Mastering the Mistress by Evangeline Anderson


 A muscular slave turns the tables on his unsuspecting mistress and teaches her an erotic lesson in submission in Mastering the Mistress by @EvangelineA in the #Mastered2 box set!

Mastering the Mistress by Evangeline Anderson 

Lyra reached around him and pushed the up indicator. Apparently the “dungeon” they were taking him to was on the top floor. As Solar stepped inside the mirrored walls of the elevator, he caught a glimpse of himself in the glass. He was a sorry sight indeed, arms bound behind his back, the spiked pain collar choking his throat, and the tight black leather trousers constricting his shaft.

Behind him, he could see the small, steely eyes of Lyra, still holding the remote on him like a gun. Behind her, Kaylee entered the elevator last. She was nibbling her lush lower lip and there was a look of uncertainty on her pretty face. Solar stared at her and she looked up, meeting his gaze in the mirror. Their gazes locked and for a long, breathless moment they looked into each other’s eyes.

She’s beautiful, Solar admitted to himself reluctantly. In fact, under different circumstances, he might have asked to buy her a drink. Unfortunately, they weren’t exactly standing side by side at the friendly neighborhood space port bar. He was currently her property—bound and collared and subject to her every whim. It kind of put a damper on a male’s mood.

Which didn’t explain why his shaft was stirring in his trousers. Suddenly he remembered the sight of her plump little pussy, just inches from his face and the warm, feminine scent which had teased his nose when his head had gotten trapped under her ridiculously short skirt. He wouldn’t mind playing sexual games with this little female—not a bit. If games were all they were. But being tied up and sold as a slave was no game or joke. And Kaylee wasn’t the only one he had to worry about. There was also Lyra to contend with.

He continued to stare into Kaylee’s eyes in the mirror. Her lips were slightly parted and her cheeks were flushed. Solar expected her to drop her gaze and end the intense staring contest at any moment but she seemed frozen—an animal caught in the headlights of an oncoming craft. He narrowed his own eyes and licked his lips slowly—the implication was clear. I’m going to eat you up, little female. The minute I get free of these damn collar and cuffs you’re in trouble!

He wanted to discomfort her and put her off her guard and it worked. Kaylee’s eyes widened and she took a step back, her rounded posterior bumping against the mirrored wall of the elevator just as it emitted a soft chime and came to a halt.

                                                               * * * * * * * *

Kaylee wished her new slave wouldn’t keep staring at her that way. And was he actually growling? She couldn’t help remembering the way their eyes had locked in the elevator and the implied threat in his green and gold gaze. Goddess, the way he looked at her was so intense. It seemed to promise she would get back everything she and Lyra were dishing out with interest if only he could get free. The thought made Kaylee shudder and not just because she dreaded his intended retribution.

For some reason the way her new slave stared at her reminded her of the stash of illicit porn vids she’d found in the back of one of Aunt J’s closets. Vids of males dominating females instead of the other way around, the way nature intended. There were even some of males penetrating females with their shafts—an unheard of taboo. It made her wonder if Aunt J had been some kind of a sexual pervert. Or maybe she was just willing to try anything at least once. That seemed more in keeping with her dare-devil character.

Though she was shocked and dismayed by the illicit images, Kaylee hadn’t been able to stop watching them. They made her think of stories she’d heard of the Kindred—the race of males who were genetic traders and traveled the universe in search of females to bond with. Of course, her new slave was a Havoc, not a Kindred but still… The disturbing scenes gave her a strange, throbbing, tingling feeling between her legs which she had never felt when viewing other, more standard pornographic material with females dominating males…

Her new slave’s deep growl was becoming more menacing. It jerked her out of her illicit memories and made her blush when she realized he was giving her that intense stare again.

Stop it—stop thinking about it when you’re so close to him, she told herself as she fastened the cuffs around his wrists with trembling fingers. What if Havoc males can read thoughts somehow? She’d heard it said that their genetic cousins, the Kindred, formed a telepathic bond with the females they mated. Could it be that the Havoc had a similar talent? Kaylee didn’t want to find out.



Mastered 2 Box Set Author Spotlight: The Buyer by Saskia Walker

Welcome to the our Mastered 2 author spotlight series! I hope the new box set filled your dreams with lovely visions of Doms and decadent discovery. I know it kept me up late, that’s for sure! Today we’ll be looking at The Buyer by Saskia Walker.


 A wild weekend with a dominant master proves Naomi’s true nature in The Buyer by @saskiawalker in the #Mastered2 box set!

The Buyer by Saskia Walker

As soon as the door to his apartment clicked shut Lucas closed on her, pinning her up against the wall in the hallway, caging her there with his body.

Naomi trembled. She wanted him, but he’d flagged up some pretty intense sexual preferences, and she was flying blind on that score. Apart from some playful spanking she’d never played with a real Dom before. Everything he’d said had intrigued her and turned her on, big time, but she was stepping into the unknown.

Then he locked his hand around the back of her neck, his fingers moving beneath her hair, and ducked his head, kissing her hungrily.

The kiss, at last. She’d been thinking about it all evening, wanting it and imagining it. His mouth on hers melted her doubts away, instinct taking over.

She let go her bag and it fell to the floor. Her hands locked around his head as responded to him.  With his free hand he hitched up her skirt, cupping her bottom in his hands, pushing aside her lacey underwear so that he could touch her skin. She gasped at his forthright touch and her head fell back against the wall. When she did, he ducked his head to kiss her throat. His teeth grazed her throat.

“I want you so much,” she murmured. She felt delirious as she said it.  “Lucas, please… I really want this, but I’m a little afraid.”

He drew back, pausing. “Don’t be. I’m here to look after you.”

She clung to him, swallowed, then nodded. There was no turning back. After she’d given way to her doubts and agreed to go home with him, she had to know what it would be like to have sex with a man like Lucas.

He looked like a big cat assessing its prey. “Tell me why you are here,” he said.

“I’m here because you made me want to know what it would be like, to be alone with you.”

He nodded. “Show me how much you wanted that.”

Naomi’s pulse raced. She wasn’t sure what he meant by that.

“Strip,” he added, with a quick nod at her clothing.

The command fell from his lips so easily, as if he was asking her to take a seat. But the effect it had on her was devastating. Can I do this?

It’s what she’d come there for, to get intimate with him, and he was taking control of her, as promised, but she hadn’t expected that simple but stunning one-word instruction.

The answer was that she couldn’t walk away – she couldn’t not do it.


Mastered 2 Box Set Author Spotlight Day 2: XO, Blake by Avery Aster

mastered2 quote card avery aster

Hello and welcome to the second day of our Mastered 2 author spotlight series! I hope the new box set filled your dreams with lovely visions of Doms and decadent discovery. I know it kept me up late, that’s for sure! Today we’ll be looking at my own story in the box set, XO, Blake… enjoy! ;)

Ivy League students let their naughtiest desires run wild… “XO, Blake” by @AveryAster, in the new #Mastered2 box set!

For fans of the dark comedy BDSM film Tie Me Up, Tie Me Down comes an erotic exploration in domination and submission where Ivy League students let their kinkiest desires run wild, and Blake shows you just how good it feels to be on top.

If you think my besties Lex, Taddy, and Vive have had some bad luck earlier this year, cut to me at Glamorama. Last thing I remembered was dancing with Diego and Miguel from my English class, when the room started… spinning. And not in a good way! We got sick. Think Regan in The Exorcist. Taddy was rushed to the hospital. Holding on for dear life, I was carried out by the boys and taken back to their dorm.

Now I’m waking up in Diego’s bed and Miguel keeps staring at me from across the room. I’ve wanted to get into these dudes’ pants since the first day of class. But Diego told me he likes to be tied up and–wait for it–spanked. WTF! The news on TV reports that last night we all got roofied. And Vive just texted me saying that someone is out to kill her. Could this semester get any more bizarre?





XO, Blake by Avery Aster

His muscular arms came wide. He peeled off his cotton tank, revealing his gorgeous chest. Perfectly sculpted. His nipples, like two blackberries, stared back at me, persuading to be tasted, sucked, and played with.

“Lick my pecs, guapo,” he panted, grabbing on to my face, pulling my lips onto his flesh. “They’re sensitive. My nips go straight to my dick. You touch them and I get hard. Sí.

Such knowledge could be perilous. He struck a vibrant chord in me…

I stuck my tongue out a bit and licked, once, twice. My teeth caught on the edge of his right nipple as I gave it a slight tug. His tormented groan was a heady invitation to keep going. And so I grazed my tongue across his smooth chest and continued the licking, biting playfully on his other pec. His body shivered in my arms. I liked how vulnerable he was becoming. There was something alluring about the man, being so muscular and masculine, and yet willing to let me have my way with him.

I had no power over all the crazy shit going on in my life. But in Diego’s bed, I had a sense of control. I needed that. If only for one night. It felt new and different to me, and I intended to enjoy every minute.

He pulled my shirt up. Holding onto his shoulders, I stood. With a projected energy and power which attracted me to him, he yanked my pants and then my underwear down.

Being naked in front of him, I didn’t feel as vulnerable as I thought I would. If anything, my excitement only continued to climb.

And then he…stroked…my dick.

Guapo, you like that?” he murmured, fisting his hands over my erection.

“Ah-huh,” I replied in a husky whisper.

Hard, my shaft thickened in his hands. The way he manhandled me felt hot, too. His palms were callus and rough but with my dick, he was almost gentle. He rubbed the bare skin, admiring the mushroom head of my penis.

Raw. Sensitive.

Staring up at me, his chest rose as he moaned, “I’m going to get your cock nice and wet. Then you’re going…to tie me up.”

“Start sucking, papi,” I said in a throaty voice and lost myself in his mouth. Getting more turned on by the second as he gave me oral pleasure, becoming sensitive to his every touch, my nipples tightened.

I didn’t know who I was or what the frick I was doing. It was as if I was having an out-of-body experience. I was no longer Blake Morgan III, Fairfield native, Avon Porter graduate, and Columbia University student.


I was guapo, the raging dominant and soon-to-be top aficionado of all things ass.

Tugging at my balls, his head jerked back and forth. Getting into a rhythm, he rotated his attention from the tip of my dick to my shaft.

Waves of pleasure throbbed through me. The warmth of his hot flesh was amazing.

He reached for the rope from the nightstand and instructed in sweet agony, “Tie me up.” And spread out on his back.

Climbing on top of him, I placed his hands near the headrest. Taking his right hand in mine, I recalled my good ‘ol Boy Scout days of knots and wrapped the blue rope once, twice, around his wrist. Then I pulled his arm up a bit.

Mastered 2 Box Set Author Spotlight Day 2: Her Secret by Portia Da Costa

Mastered2 Portia

Mastered 2 Box Set Author Spotlight Day 2: Her Secret by Portia Da Costa

People come and go, but passions remain the same. Sometimes people who come back into our lives deserve a second chance… while others do not. Portia Da Costa gives us a chance to rediscover an old love in her Mastered 2 story, “Her Secret”…

Can this lover from Susannah’s past become the master of her future? “Her Secret” by @PortiaDaCosta in #Mastered2!

A Lover from her past…

Jamie Lennox is the first man that Susannah ever loved, but now he’s different, dangerous and more devastatingly attractive than ever before. Their reunion is passionate and perverse, a thrilling exchange of power and pleasure. Can this lover from Susannah’s past become the master of her future?





Her Secret by Portia Da Costa

Attending a wedding reception, reunited lovers Susannah and Jamie have decided to spend the night together, and are on their way up to his room in the lift…


Within the blink of an eye, we’re alone in the metal box, going up. It’s just a short ride, and all Jamie does is dust a strangely courtly kiss in my knuckles, looking up at me intently over them. What’s in his mind? What’s he planning? Apart from the obvious.

He’s a strong man. A man confident in his own skin. He wears black and leather. He’s almost the cliché of a dominant master, from what little I’ve gleaned about such things.

His mouth is firm and his eyes control me. My stomach flutters at the idea. But there’s an almost angelic softness to his thick, glossy black hair that brushes his shoulders.

Perhaps he is a Hells Angel after all?

I want to leap forwards and kiss his lips, but the lift door opens, and he leads me out and along the corridor to his room. He doesn’t speak, but his beautiful eyes and his imperious body language say everything. Once in the room, he pulls me into his arms, and I melt towards him, powerless. The strap of my bag slides off my shoulder, and it drops to the carpet. I don’t seem to have the will to pick it up; everything is for Jamie, my total concentration as he cradles my head and brings his mouth down on mine in just the way I wanted in the lift.

It’s as if we never parted, yet somehow he’s gained twelve years of manhood and potency and self-belief. His tongue pushes between my lips immediately, bold and muscular and subduing. The taste of him is champagne and overproof alpha male. The kiss is like an engine turned on inside me. Wanton, I press myself against him, my belly against the considerable hard knot of his denim-clad cock.

‘Very nice,’ he growls against my mouth. ‘Very keen. I like that.’ He nips at my lower lip, his teeth closing in perfectly gauged dominion. ‘Don’t ever hide your desire from me, Suzie. Don’t hold back.’

The kiss begins again, but more so. Much more. Jamie the mature man is far more voracious than the younger Jamie. He knows exactly what he wants and he’s taking it. A little fear grips my heart. What have I got myself into? I’m not sure I can control this situation, but then, why would I want to? If I want to experience the games of BDSM that I know my friends play, willing submission is the key to it. Even if there’s no pain involved, there’s power. His power.
