BRUTAL SIN: New Release Review and Giveaway

AUGUST 7, 2017


Falling in love will be brutal.

Bryan is ruthless, heartless, and more than a little proud of his notorious reputation, until his bad attitude threatens to strip him of the one place he can’t live without. His sanctuary. The Vault. The exclusive club is the only place he feels at home, and he’ll do whatever it takes to reclaim what is his. Even if it means asking for help from the woman who landed him in trouble in the first place.

Pamela may have become weak-kneed over Bryan’s talented hands once before, but this self-empowered widow isn’t stupid enough to want more from the sanctimonious ass. Nope. At least that’s what she tells herself before he turns up at her café, offering to refresh her memory on his skilled fingers and filthy words in exchange for a favor.

He needs her to set things straight in the Vault. She needs him to satisfy the cravings of fulfillment she’s been missing. It’s a match made in hedonistic heaven, until hostility turns to lust, and lust into passion, capturing them both in an emotional web neither one of them want to be ensnared in.

Warning: This is an exhibitionist’s playfield and a voyeur’s delight, but dominance always rules. Throw in teasing, torture, and a gag or two, and you’ve got yourself another night of debauchery within the carnal walls of the Vault of Sin.



Bryan aka Brute is the last of the 3 owners of The Vault to remain a single man and he is perfectly OK with that. The Vault is his refuge, the one place that he can go to just be himself and enjoy himself while forgetting about the rest of the world, but lately even that one place of solace has been becoming more and more annoying to him. He makes it very clear when he plays that he is not looking for anything more than one night, yet women seem to take that declaration and his bad attitude as an invitation to try and change him much to his frustration.
When Shay, Leo’s significant other and one of The Vault’s bartenders, approaches him with a challenge to help a woman who is considering cancelling her membership because she can’t find what she needs, he thinks it is another lame attempt by her to help him find some happiness. But when he gets a good look at the woman in question, he isn’t sure if he should run or walk away.  Pamela aka Ella has not escaped his notice since the moment she applied for membership, but despite his attraction, he has never actually spoken to her. Widows equate to a boatload of baggage in his mind, and he doesn’t do baggage or clingy or attachments… you get the idea. Yet the woman standing before him seems to be the polar opposite of clingy with a definite spirit and attitude to match his own.
Pamela’s marriage was short-lived due to her husband’s terminal illness, but in the time they were together he taught her about a side of herself she never knew existed. He awoke a need for true dominance in a partner, but the men of The Vault either don’t have what she needs or only play at being what they think she needs in order to try to spend some time with her. When faced with Brute, she instinctively knows he can offer what she has been looking for- if she can tolerate his godawful attitude.
And so begins the teasing, the taunts, the challenges and the seriously steamy moments when they finally break enough to give in to one another. Secrets of Brute’s past and truths about Pamela’s marriage slowly rise to the surface, and despite their best attempts to avoid it, a connection is built between them. Bryan has never really known love before or been in a relationship. so he has absolutely zero knowledge of how to navigate through that version of a minefield even if he wanted to. Pamela is afraid of repeating history, but something about him calls to her. Brutal Sin may be a little tumultuous and may seriously aggravate you at times, but it is 100% fitting for these two characters and was an enjoyable addition to The Vault series.



Throw back a shot of pure sin. 

Leo Petrova has a dirty secret that’s about to get blown wide open. The exclusive VIP area hidden beneath his night club, Shot of Sin, is short staffed a bartender. The only available replacement is Shay—his temptation, his distraction—the sole woman he refuses to escort down the secret staircase. She has no clue about the private adult club that lies beneath her feet and he’d prefer to keep it that way. The Vault of Sin is the only place he can let his sexual proclivities run wild and he’s learned the hard way that Shay is too virtuous to be comfortable in the erotic environment.

Shay Porter is curious as to why her boss, the king of mixed messages, seems almost desperate to keep her from discovering what’s on the other side of the guarded door at the back of the building. But she’s never backed down from a challenge before. Sliding into Leo’s arms and this new world of carnal exploration is addictive yet frightening. She could lose her job, her self-respect, and her heart.

Exposing a vanilla woman to a sorbet lifestyle isn’t something Leo’s business partners approve of. Secrets are at stake. Friendships, too. And through it all, neither one of them can ignore the wicked taste of sin threatening to tear it all apart.

Warning: This sex club does not carry the government’s stamp of approval. Contains devilish debauchery, delightful deviance, and dancing on the edge of the darkest of sexual desires. 

Please note: This book was previously released by Samhain Publishing. This new edition contains a few slight tweaks as well as a new setting for the series.



He’ll do anything to protect her. Even if it means letting her go.

Vault of Sin, Book 2

Tate Jackson made a big mistake. No, a monumental one. He picked the wrong place to introduce his wife, Cassie, to the alluring lifestyle they’d fantasized about.
Instinct told him to get her out of the poor excuse for a sex club—but he didn’t. And she was assaulted because of his carelessness. He’ll do anything to protect her from another traumatic experience, even if it means making the agonizing choice to convince his wife he no longer loves her.
Cassie’s not buying it. In fact, Tate is the last person she blames for that horrific night. She’s willing to give him the space he thinks he needs to get his head straight, but when divorce papers arrive, she realizes she’s out of time. She has twenty-eight days to figure out why Tate is ruining a perfect marriage. Twenty-eight days to figure out what he’s hiding. But when she learns the truth, she has to decide if her heart can take the strain of piecing their love back together.

Warning: Dirty tactics, dirtier sex, ropes, masks, guilty consciences, and love stretched so far, no one escapes unchanged. Not even you, dear reader.
