OMG! 'Sea Dog' is the sixth book in Delta James' "Mercenary Masters" series and this one just left me with a feeling of giddiness in the pit of my stomach! Although this book can be read as a standalone, it's so much better if you've read the previous releases, then you'd be like those of us who have been trying to wait patiently for Sully and Nina's story, and man, was it worth the wait? You betcha. Suffice it to say, it took Nina breaking the agreement with Interpol and for Fitz to tell Sully he needed to "Get the girl in your bed, dominate the brat, and I’ll arrange it so she can live here… with you.” “Why would I do that? I have never given any indication…” his voice trailed off as Fitzwallace rolled his eyes. “Are you still telling yourself that? Good God, man, you follow her around with your tongue hanging out, practically drooling. And when you’re not looking, she looks at you like a starving hyena does with a nice juicy antelope laid out before it. You should know that Nigel and Sawyer are betting the two of you will never figure it out, but Wyatt and I have faith in you.” Sully groaned. “What about Dex?” “Well, he’s been on the fence. He was siding with Nigel and Sawyer, but with this assignment, he’s betting you’ll figure it out.” James, Delta. Sea Dog: A Mercenary Masters Romance (pp. 11-12). Kindle Edition.
I giggled, sat on the edge of my seat, turned up the fan, and, in general, had a wonderful time reading this book. As I said, it was well worth the wait.

Nina finds herself in a pickle when she's double-crossed by a dangerous client. Luckily, Sully is there to save her and take her under him. He'd been waiting for the perfect opportunity to lure her into his clutches. Now he's got her and won't ever let her go.

A good short read but there are a couple of glaring questions she should have asked - 1. How did he know she was in danger? The answer is positively maddening. 2. What's his first name? The answer, when given on their wedding day, is something DJ must have researched a lot to make "Sully" a much better moniker. And I still hate Fitz. I just wanna slap him.

The story is a spin-off from the Masters of the Savoy series, where some of the characters have had cameo roles, like Nina Oletta, an international forger and hacker for hire, and Fitzwallace and JJ from Baker Street BDSM club and the Cerberus Group.

Nina Oletta was rescued by the Cerberus Group, who negotiated a deal with Interpol that kept her out of jail. But this part of being a good girl, keeping her nose clean, and being legit wasn’t working out for her.

“No, she had one more lucrative score, and then she would go underground, reinvent herself and go back to doing what she did best—creating beautiful new identities, including electronic histories to go with them. Time to go back to something a little sexier, a little more fun, and a lot more lucrative.”

The story’s plot will have Nina taking a cruise after hacking into systems and clearing the way. She is scheduled to meet a Bratva member who has had plastic surgery, left his family behind, and brought his young mistress. He is planning to start over, and he needs Nina to help him with his new identity. But he won’t be the only one starting over; she plans to disappear and find a new life somewhere else. But her plans aren’t as secretive as she suspects, and Fitzwallace will send Sully trying to stop the chain of events.

The story is a fabulous prequel to start this new series. I liked how Sully one-ups Nina and makes arrangements for better accommodations to keep her in his sights. His goal is to wine, dine, and bed her, to keep her safe—even from herself. What was to be a night of self-discovery in BDSM ends before it even begins. Nina will find herself in life and death danger, and her white knight will rescue her—but there is a price to pay. It will include dominance and submission, consensual punishment, and ends with pleasure.
Sully: You’re safe, Nina. Fitz is taking care of everything. Wyatt will pick us up in Genoa and transport us back to London.

Nina: It’s fine. However, you want to handle it. JJ says it’s always such a relief when she can just ask Fitz to deal with it. So please, Sully, will you deal with this for me?
Sully: Yes, sweetheart, I will. It’ll be okay, Nina. I’ll take care of everything. Come on, let’s get this over with.
Nina: You don’t have to do this. I get it.
Sully: But not as much as you will when I’m done. We may as well start out the way we’re going to go. You’re getting spanked for a myriad of reasons. Submit or safeword out, Nina.
Nina: I want this, well not this, but I want you, and I want what my friends have.

Top Dog: Mercenary Masters #4

She was used to doing things her way. Then he took her over his knee.
When beautiful, headstrong medic Rhiannon Farrell disobeys her commanding officer and undertakes a dangerous mission on her own, she ends up over black ops soldier Sawyer Barnes’ knee for a painful spanking followed by an even more shameful demonstration of his dominance. But as humiliating as it is to be bared and punished like a naughty little girl, her body’s response to the infuriatingly sexy brute cannot be denied, and it isn’t long before she is calling him master.
As Sawyer introduces her to a world of stern authority and blushing surrender, every quivering climax makes it more clear that she belongs to him, but when Rhiannon is captured and held prisoner by a ruthless enemy will the ordeal change the nature of their relationship forever?

I absolutely was blown away by this book and feel it is the best of the 'Mercenary Masters' series. This is Sawyer and Rhiannon's story. When we first meet them they are on a mission for the Cerberus Group. Sawyer gets upset with an action taken by Rhiannon and administers his form of discipline. One thing leads to another and we soon have a dom/sub relationship with respect and love. Fast forward, on a new assignment something goes terribly wrong and Rhiannon is reluctantly left behind while the rest of the team escapes to safety. While in captivity, Rhiannon is tortured both mentally and physically. Restrains and whips are used as well as her being sexually assaulted. No one writes a villain as well as Ms. James and you can't help but hate Baddad Sayeed and his team of terroist. Rhiannon is rescued by the Cerberus Group right before being raped and is taken immediately to the hospital. During her hospital stay, Rhiannon is kept sedated so that her wounds are able to heal properly. No one is allowed to visit, giving Rhiannon too much time to think on her own and come up with wrong assessment of the situation at hand. Feeling like she has little to offer the world but her hunger for vengeance, she leaves on her own. The story continues years later with Rhiannon fine tuning her assassin techniques and her and Sawyer still pining for each other. The couple is given a unique opportunity to work together in helping a group of girls kidnapped by Bagdad Sayeed. What happens next is a thrilling adventure. We get to reconnect with past members and friends of the Cerberus Group. There is an abundance of action, conflict, espionage, and emotions that follows as well as some very hot🔥 sex. I highly recommend this book and hope there is at least one more in the series. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sawyer gets Rhiannon back
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on February 6, 2021
Sawyer and Rhiannon have been explosive from the get-go. Once they connect, Sawyer knows she is the only woman he will ever want again. Rhiannon feels the same way. She finds peace in submitting to him, and only him. As part of Fitz’s team, they work closely together.
When a black ops rescue mission goes bad several months later, Rhiannon is captured by the enemy. She knows Sawyer and the rest of their team will come for her. She just needs to survive. When they do reach her, and get her to the hospital, she is in bad shape. The torture has left scars on her back and on her soul She believes she is damaged, and Sawyer won’t want her any more. She does not believe she will be able to be his submissive ever again. She escapes from the hospital and disappears. It takes years for Sawyer to find her again.
Fitz and Sawyer manipulate her into coming back onto their team, as a sniper. She is one of the best. She plans to enjoy the time she has with Sawyer, then fade back out, but he has other ideas. He will never let her go again, and once they come back together, it is as if no time has passed. Now they have the common goal of killing the man who had her tortured, and then on with the rest of their lives.
This book is the best of the series so far. Sawyer was lost without his love, and finding each other has made them both whole again. Rhiannon is one of the author’s signature feisty heroines who can take care of herself, and the fact that she allows Sawyer to take care of her is a testament to their love. Their HEA is years in the making and oh so sweet. I cannot recommend this one highly enough

5.0 out of 5 stars A simply riveting all action romance and retribution story
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on February 6, 2021
Sawyer and Rhiannon have had an interest in each other since she joined their team and although very little is known about her life as a child, she has been a great asset to the team even though she is female and working in heavily combative area as the medic she shows no fear what-so-ever.
Rhiannon has a tendency to take action first and think of the consider the consequences later however, when any of her team are injured, she will let nothing stand in her way and on this one operation she is captured, tortured and left badly injured. She is also very badly beaten and nearly raped by the guards, she was also sexually assaulted and escapes from the hospital with taking her own vengeance in mind.
For nearly five years her team members and her Dom and the love of her life Sawyer have been trying to catch up with her but she is clever and seemingly always one step ahead and they feel as though they are constantly playing catch up, they will not give up on her no matter what it takes.
She is a very different woman from the medic that had been part of their team all those years before and she has spent her time catching up with those responsible for atrocities against women and children and she will not stop till the main culprit has paid the ultimate price.
A captivating read that will draw you in and hold your attention completely.

I thoroughly enjoyed the book and look forward to reading any future publications; keep up all the great writing.

Sharing is Caring

We’ve all heard that little phrase at one point or another. The speaker could have been talking about our toys, our school supplies, or any number of other things that can be shared. Sharing is a good thing!

When it comes to blogs, sharing can be vital to our success as a blogger. After all, we want new readers to find and follow our blog. Relying on search engines isn’t going to get you very far.

Sharing isn’t going to replace searches but it can bring you more exposure. Across the bottom of most blog posts is a line of buttons that are a quick way to share the post. As a blogger, I include them but never really looked at the resulting stats.


The other day I took a look at my sharing stats. Imagine my surprise when I saw that my blog has been shared a whopping 10,000+ times on WhatsApp! So thank you folks, that’s an avenue of sharing I never thought of!

Small Space Decorating-Kitchen Edition

While you are looking for ways to express yourself in your home, don’t forget about the kitchen!

The intention of this photo was to focus on my Christmas table setting. But it also shows my undecorated kitchen, kinda bland and boring. From this view you see nothing of my personality.

Enter just a little bit of remodeling.

Recently my husband offered me the chance to get some new kitchen appliances and linens. Now, he screwed the hooks in but you could easily use Command Hooks instead. The small hooks close to the trim are used to hold lights during the Christmas holiday season.

In search of more room in our house, my husband built me a pegboard to hang my pots on. A little bit of painting and Ta-Da!

The blue pans are a recent addition since I love the color blue.

This kitchen island was purchased from the Habitat for Humanity ReStore shop. Again, a little bit of painting and things are looking much brighter!

My last decorating change was colorful coffee mugs. All of which I found at Amazon.

The Devil’s in the Details

What is about a book series that keeps you interested and coming back for more? Before you give me a quick answer, stop and think harder about it. Yes, the characters, the relationships, the action, all that will play a huge part in whether you read more than the first few chapters.

There’s been more than one highly rated book series that I’ve tried but just couldn’t keep interested in. Honestly, I’ve always wondered why I didn’t like the classics more than I do. I kept coming back to the question of “Why?”

Recently my husband and I started buying the complete series on DVD of several TV series that are no longer available any other way. It took watching a couple of the ones from the 1970’s for the reason to dawn on me.

When you contrast those shows with some of today’s shows, the sheer amount of detail just jumps out at you. Rather than using studio sets for the indoor shots, they would shoot in actual places. That gives you a much more realistic feeling.

In the same way, it’s the details of the story that makes it so much more enjoyable. It’s the difference between filming on the studio backlot where everything is carefully staged and filming on a city street.

So, if you’re the writer, please include the details! As a reader, we need to let the authors know we appreciate their efforts!
