Total-E-Bound Thursday Guest Blog: Sierra Cartwright’s Mastered Series

Nothing is off limits…as long as the woman consents…

I invite you to get Mastered with me at the Den. In an idyllic mountain setting on a dozen secluded acres of land, Master Damien Lowell has made his spectacular Colorado home—the Den—available to a select group of people. Doms and subs are invited to explore the intricate nuances of dominance and submission, of exquisite bondage, and strict discipline, of stunningly sexy alpha heroes.

At the Den: where the wildest of fantasies becomes reality, lives are transformed, and limits are shattered for six strong, competent women.


A couple of years ago, I attended the wedding of a close friend in Winter Park, Colorado. She and her groom-to-be had rented a gorgeous, spacious home for the occasion. Finding the house was a challenge as it was set back from the road by several miles. I traversed roads that I swear weren’t on any map!

There were a few things that made the ceremony unique. First, I had never met the groom. In fact, none of her friends had. Secondly, they’d asked that the guests bring no gifts except for a candle.

At dusk, all of the candles were lit. That, and the crackling fireplace, provided the only light in the great room where the vows were exchanged.

As the bride came down the staircase, a light, magical snow began to fall. Since it was winter, I was afraid the snowfall could become significant. But it didn’t. Instead, it sparkled in the light, like fairy dust.

Anyway, since I am a writer, I started playing a “What if?” game. What if the groom wasn’t exactly the type of man I imagined him to be? What if the owner of the house was a reclusive and sexy Dom?

As guests, we had to stick to the main level of the house, the kitchen, the great room, dining room, living room. So of course, I was curious about the rest of the house. (What? You don’t have those wild thoughts when you’re at a wedding??)

As I drove back to Denver, over Berthoud Pass, the idea for the six book series was born.

What if… What if a reclusive Dom owned the home? What if the basement did have a dungeon? What if the house were really an exclusive BDSM club? What if the wedding were more than it appeared to be?

The idea for With This Collar was the first part of concept that took on a life of its own. I imagined a woman who knew nothing about BDSM being invited to a wedding that was equal parts wedding and collaring ceremony. I pictured our heroine, Julia, as a take-charge woman who knew what she wanted, and someone who had a tight friendship with the bride. And then, oh, my, Master Marcus came to me, fully formed and hot as sin.

I wondered what would happen if Julia went to this ceremony expecting something traditional as I had expected when I went to my friend’s wedding.

Until then, I’d sat in pews at weddings, rather than forming a semi-circle around the bride and groom with dozens of candles flickering in the darkening room.

And I had a hard time imagining Julia keeping quiet. And I had a difficult time picturing Master Marcus allowing her to disrupt the wedding.

Of course, the ceremony of my imagination would be officiated by a tall, dark, and handsome Dom. Who also owned the home.

The hero/Dom, along with his name, came to me instantly: Damien. And of course, his place would earn the nickname of Devil’s Den. (Because, of course, it’s set outside of Denver.)

Membership at the Den is exclusive. The Doms have to be powerful, alpha, larger than life, men we’d want to claim us.

In Over the Line, book three of the Mastered series from Total-E-Bound, Master Michael is a bit unusual. He’s a rancher. So, oh, yeah, the man can throw a lasso to capture his sub. Is there anything sexier than a Dominant cowboy in a pair of jeans who will stop at nothing to prove to the fiercely independent woman/submissive, Sydney, that she belongs in his bonds, his heart, his life…?

The men of the Mastered series are as raw and untamed as the mountains they call home, until the right woman turns them inside out…

Please join me for an exciting journey to the Den, where, I hope, your fantasies will become reality…

Summary:

Book Three in the Mastered series.

He can’t say he wasn’t warned…

From the moment he’s cautioned to avoid the submissive who snares his attention, Dom Michael Dayton is intrigued. With her tight dress, flowing hair and honest dialogue, what could be more perfect than a few hours together?

Sydney Wallace fears only one thing—being tied down. She lives for adventure and fun, including the occasional BDSM party. By always scening with different Doms, she avoids emotional entanglements that might complicate her life. A man who owns a ranch and has roots deep into the soil is definitely not the kind of Dom she wants to play with.

Sydney has never met anyone as complex as Master Michael Dayton. From the moment he issues his first command, she knows he’s different. He watches her reactions, sees what she wants, and unselfishly gives her what she needs. Getting involved with a man like him would be the biggest risk of her life, crossing over all of lines she’s drawn to protect her way of life.

After the first night together, Michael realises he should have heeded the warning. But it may already be too late…

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of anal sex and use of sex toys.
