The Young and the Submissvie Blog tour - Interview with Shayla Black, Jenna Jacob, and Isabella LaPearl

Hello, my name is Book Reporter. It took some time, but I finally tracked down the lovely ladies who write The Doms of Her Life Series: Shayla Black, Jenna Jacob, and Isabella LaPearl. They have been hidden away writing Book 2, The Young & The Submissive.

When I arrived at Shadows, they were all waiting for me at the bar. After we ordered drinks, we sat at a table and began to visit.

#1 - Will there be a book about Beck?

You never know… As we spend more time with Beck, we’re growing fonder of the big lug, and you’ll see lots of him in The Young and The Submissive, including a side or two of him that might surprise you.

I have a crush on Beck, so this is all good news to me! *Crosses fingers for a Beck book* 

#2 - Should Raine choose Team Liam, Team Hammer or Team Ménage?

Raine should think carefully about her choices. All of them deeply impact her future and her happiness. Knowing exactly what she wants and why is critical.

It will be interesting to watch Raine come to a decision. I always want to wrap her up in a hug, she’s a doll.

#3 – There have been rumors that The Doms of Her Life is a trilogy. Is that true?

No. We won’t elaborate beyond that. You’ll have to wait and see. But this is NOT a trilogy.

Maybe that means there will be a ton of Doms of Her Life books, I’m definitely ok with that! *Grins*

#4 - Is Raine pregnant?

You’ll have to wait and find out. Yes, we might be tormenting you a little.

The suspense is killing me!

#5 - Do we learn any deep, dark secrets about any of the characters in The Young and The Submissive?

Yes! You’ll learn lots of new facts about a few characters that should help you understand what makes them tick. Lots of juicy stuff to come…

*Sigh* Looking forward to it!

Being the hard hitting reporter that I am, I saved the most difficult questions for last.

#6 - Chocolate OR Strawberries

Shayla: Both! They go together really well, so why choose?

Jenna: Both. Together. In bed. LOL!

Isabella: Strawberries. They’re juicy. Unless you give me white chocolate, too. Then it’s on!

#7 - Black OR White

Shayla: Both—and most every shade in between! But together, these two are striking.

Jenna: Both, but my favorite color is green.

Isabella: Both, preferably at the same time.

#8 - Dogs OR Cats (RAWR)

Shayla: I’m definitely a feline person. My friends know that I’m all about my furry baby that meows. I’ve had dogs, too, and enjoyed their company. But I definitely have an affinity for cats.

Jenna: Dogs. Does anyone want a black lab puppy that weighs 85 pounds? Love him, but wow, what a handful!

Isabella: Neither. That way I’m the center of attention. LOL!

#9 - Margarita OR Wine

Shayla: How about margaritas AND wine? Really, that’s one ultimatum I just refuse to accept.

Jenna: Margaritas on the beach with cabana Doms. Not that I’m being greedy.

Isabella: Absolutely!

As you can see, these ladies are fun, talented writers, whom we can count on for an intense story. Thank you for chatting with me today. I leave you with a small snippet of what’s to come.

Chapter 1

Macen “Hammer” Hammerman stifled the mundane conversation with his assistant, Raine Kendall, and stood, bracing his hands on the desk between them. Though his office door stood open—he wasn't “allowed” to talk to her otherwise—they were as alone as they’d been in weeks. It was now or never. He had an important question to ask.

“Tell me something, Raine. Your period is what, five days late?”












The Young and The Submissive is the second installment in the super sexy serialized Doms of Her Life series. It picks up shortly after the first title, One Dom to Love, left off.

The Young And The Submissive
Doms of Her Life, Book 2

Raine Kendall has everything a woman could want…almost. Sexy, tender Dom Liam O’Neill is her knight in shining armor, but Raine keeps pinching herself. Is he too good to be true or is this growing connection one that could last a lifetime? She’s constantly torn by her abiding feelings for her commanding boss, Macen “Hammer” Hammerman, especially in the wake the mind-blowing night he cast aside the barriers between them and ravaged every inch of her body.

Hammer, Liam’s former best friend, can’t stop coveting Raine. But Liam is determined to hold and guide the woman he loves and see if she can be the submissive of his dreams. However, he’s finding that her trust is hard won and he needs a bloody crowbar to pry open her scarred soul. So he risks everything to win her once and for all. But once he’s put his daring plan in motion, will it cost Liam his heart if he loses Raine to Hammer for good?

Cover Reveal: Brie Embraces the Heart of Submission after Graduation by Red Phoenex

Book Description:

On the night of graduation, Brie Bennett offered her collar to the man who’d won her devotion during her time at the Submissive Training Center.
The intimate encounters Brie enjoys with her new Master are hot and deliciously challenging. On the flipside, despite her newly acquired skills, she discovers that being a sub also requires maturity, intelligence and willing sacrifice.
Her Master has a tragic past that he has kept hidden. She is unaware that someone is waiting in the wings, plotting to return and rip his world apart. Brie has troubles of her own, including an obsessive Dom who won’t let her go, parents who refuse to accept her new lifestyle, and a film that is struggling to see the light of day.
Brie’s journey with her Master brings both sweet ecstasy and unbearable pain. Friendships deepen and love grows, even as her life begins to crumble around her. To survive, Brie will need the strength of a love that binds her securely—heart and soul.

Promo Tour for Delayed Penalty by Bianca Sommerland


All choices have consequences, only sometimes they’re . . . delayed.

Cortland Nash fled Dartmouth to avoid being arrested for murder, but his best friend, Ford Delgado, is in danger. Cort returns, prepared to keep his head down, and do whatever it takes to keep Ford breathing, but when he finds a beautiful young woman out in the snow, frozen in fear, his plans change. He needs to make sure she’s safe—even if the greatest danger is him.

Akira Hayashi never thought she’d overcome her fear of men, but the care of an experienced Dom helped her achieve so much more. She’s embraced her submissive side, and found her strength as the captain of the Dartmouth Cobras’ Ice Girls. There’s nothing she can’t do—except function when she’s mugged in a parking lot. The intimidating stranger who rescues her makes her feel things she never thought possible. The only problem is his connection with Ford, a man she’ll hate forever because she refuses to feel anything else.

With the constant threats from the crime lord he once called “Dad,” Ford Delgado has no room in his life for love. Unfortunately, Akira already has his heart—which is split in two when he discovers Cort is dating her. The betrayal has him lashing out, trying to move on, to grow as a Dom, and free himself from Kingsley’s criminal empire. He tries to forget what Akira means to him, but one look into her eyes shows him the last thing she needs is for him to let her go.

This e-book contains material not suitable for readers under 18. There are situations involving sex and violence and extreme emotions as a result. It also contains scenes that some may find objectionable, including BDSM and other rather enjoyable practices. As the characters are prone to exploring their sexuality, it is advised that readers be prepared to see some lines blurred. Or erased….

Author takes no responsibility for nonexistent lines. ;)

Author’s Note: The Cobras series has a continuing arc about the franchise, players, and previous relationships. Some plots continue through the series and may involve more than the main ménage. The series is best read in order.


Ford squared his shoulders and placed his hands on his hips, looking her over, his lips slanted in amusement. “You don’t really expect me to chase you around the cabin, do you?”
“How else are you going to catch me?” She skittered sideways in the opposite direction as he took a step around the table. His dark look had her shaking even harder and her cheeks heated as her panties became uncomfortably damp. She jumped as he strode toward her, scrambling to keep away, even though her body screamed for her to throw herself at him. Her tone was sharper than she meant it to be. “You’re not very good at this game.”
“Because I’m still trying to figure out how far you want this to go. What happens when I catch you, shorty?”
“You win.” She swallowed and braced to make a run for it. Maybe she was thinking too much. The limits would come in time. In this moment, all that should matter was one of her needs was being met. She didn’t have to give in. Ford would make her.
His next step had her tripping sideways, swiftly plotting her escape, but then his sharp tone made her freeze. “Stop.”
Trembling, she fisted her hands by her sides as he came to her. She yelped as he picked her up and dropped her on the sofa, the landing causing the air to whoosh out of her lungs. Before she could gather her wits and spring back up, he had her trapped.
“Cheater!” She laughed and slapped his chest, then bit her bottom lip, not sure if she’d gone too far.
He shackled her wrists with his hands and pulled them over her head, laughing softly as she squirmed beneath him. “I can’t cheat at a game neither of us wants me to lose.” Holding her wrists in one hand, he brought the other down to her throat with a light pressure that had her holding completely still. “One day, during the summer, I’ll bring you out into the woods and let you run as far as you can. And when I catch you, I’ll take you right there in the dirt, no matter how much you struggle.” He spoke against her lips. “But we’re not ready for that yet. I wanted our first time to be somewhere a little softer than the floor.”
And there it was, Ford doing what everyone else did. Telling her she wasn’t ready. She ground her teeth and turned her head. “Softer is good. And you better be really gentle. Otherwise, I could shatter.”
“Gentle?” Ford moved his hand from her throat and reached down to undo his belt. He pulled it from his jeans in one smooth motion, then brought it up to bind her wrists. Then he flipped her over so she was kneeling on the sofa, her bound wrists held firmly over her bowed head. “I never said I’d be gentle.”

About the Author
Tell you about me? Hmm, well, there’s not much to say. I love hockey and cars and my kids…not in that order of course! Lol! When I’m not writing—which isn’t often—I’m usually watching a game or a car show while networking. Going out with my kids is my only downtime. I get to clear my head and forget everything.
As for when and why I first started writing, I guess I thought I’d get extra cookies if I was quiet for a while—that’s how young I was. I used to bring my grandmother barely legible pages filled with tales of evil unicorns. She told me then that I would be a famous author.
I hope one day to prove her right.

A man who doesn’t take no for an answer.
From the first moment Morgan sees Julia’s portrait, he’s determined to have her. But the woman he meets is a far cry from the image on canvas. What starts out as a simple exercise in seduction quickly evolves into a quest to reveal the true Julia. With each sensual encounter, he employs every weapon at his disposal in hopes of making Julia see she really is the woman in Love’s Portrait.

A bestselling author of spicy historical and paranormal romance, Monica Burns penned her first short romance story at the age of nine when she selected the pseudonym she uses today. Her historical book awards include the 2011 RT BookReviews Reviewers Choice Award and the 2012 Gayle Wilson Heart of Excellence Award for Pleasure Me. She is also the recipient of the prestigious paranormal romance award, the 2011 PRISM Best of the Best award for Assassin’s Heart. From the days when she hid her stories from her sisters to her first completed full-length manuscript, she always believed in her dream despite rejections and setbacks. A workaholic wife and mother, Monica believes it’s possible for the good guy to win if they work hard enough.
Monica is a survivor, and it’s a topic she has become well versed in. A survivor of date rape at the age of 19, writing erotic romance has aided her in the life-long process of healing. Her writing has helped her reclaim some of her self-worth, and you can read her story here.

Monica has suffered from bipolar disorder since childhood, but was not diagnosed until much later in life. The condition according to the National Institute of Mental Health affects 5.7 million American adults or about 2.6% of the population (18 years and older).

Her most recent tale of survival is her diagnosis of the genetic disorder Long QT syndrome and subsequent heart defibrillator implant. Her determination to overcome these challenging life experiences is a reflection of her belief that there truly are happily ever afters. Writing romance is a therapeutic process as it allows Monica to explore the themes of hope, trust and love in her work. She believes romance books empower women to believe in themselves and that their only limitations are the ones they set for themselves.

Monica is a two-time RT Reviewers Choice Award nominee, the 2011 PRISM’s Best of the Best winner, two-time EPPIE nominee, a 2009 EPPIE for Best Erotic Historical Romance. She is a 2012 Gayle Wilson Award of Excellence finalist as well as a 2005 RWA Golden Heart finalist. She has consistently earned top reviews from RT BOOKreviews and other reviewers.
