A Note From Laura Kaye

So many readers asked for more stories in my bestselling Hard Ink series, and I’m so excited to be able to give you just that in my new, super sexy HARD TO SERVE! HARD TO SERVE is an edgy stand-alone love story about a Baltimore police detective whose red-hot BDSM relationship with a new submissive seems like the perfect distraction from a trumped-up investigation against him until he learns that the woman is his boss’s daughter.

Talk about sparks flying! I had so much fun writing this book, and I can’t wait for everyone to read it!

And if you enjoy it, you might like to check out the whole Hard Ink series, now complete!

Happy reading!

About HARD TO SERVE

To protect and serve is all Detective Kyler Vance ever wanted to do, so when Internal Affairs investigates him as part of the new police commissioner’s bid to oust corruption, everything is on the line. Which makes meeting a smart, gorgeous submissive at an exclusive play club the perfect distraction…

The director of the city’s hottest art gallery, Mia Breslin’s career is golden. Now if only she could find a man to dominate her nights and set her body—and her heart—on fire. When a scorching scene with a hard-bodied, brooding Dom at Blasphemy promises just that, Mia is lured to serve Kyler again and again.

As their relationship burns hotter, Kyler runs into Mia at work and learns that he’s been dominating the daughter of the hard-ass boss who has it in for him. Now Kyler must choose between life-long duty and forbidden desire before Mia finds another who’s not so hard to serve.

Review

Kyler Vance is quite the paradoxical man; he’s a detective who lives to serve and protect and feels honored to defend citizens from danger, but there’s also a part of him who lives to dominant…who gets off on taking women to the edge of pleasure and pain, getting them to submit to his every demand. Kyler is a natural Dom due to his profession and his personality, but he’s not looking for a permanent submissive because claiming any sub isn’t conducive to the hours and dangers he experiences as a detective. He’ll play with a bevy of beautiful subs at the club, but nothing goes further than the club and no feelings ever enter into the game because anything long term will only end in ruin for both of them.

Mia Breslin may look like the girl next door, but her favorite kind of sexual kink is being dominated by a Dom who knows how to make her submit and isn’t afraid to choke her enough to quickly find her release. The only problem with wanting to submit to a guy is the fact that once he finds out that her father’s a cop, the Dom finds it difficult to treat her roughly when she could easily have him arrested for his cruel treatment.

Kyler and Mia meet at Blasphemy and their attraction to one another is instantaneous, but Kyler’s rules threaten to prevent anything further from happening between them even though it’s clear from the start that they have more than just sexual feelings for each other. But how can their relationship become more than just scenes at the club when Master Kyler holds all the power and he might not be willing to risk his job or let go of his feelings on how being a cop always ruins relationships.

Hard to Serve is an interesting title because based on the events in the story, there are many reasons as to why Kyler finds his job as a detective difficult and Mia finds it hard to keep submitting to a man who sends her mixed messages and doesn’t seem to consider how she feels in everything that occurs between them.

I absolutely adored Kyler and Mia’s story, and if Hard to Serve is any indication of what Laura Kaye’s new Blasphemy series is going to be like, readers are in for sensual heroines, dominating alpha males, sexy as sin scenes and just the right amount of angst to illustrate that the couple has what it takes to get through anything.

Throughout Kyler and Mia’s story, readers are introduced to many of the Masters at Blasphemy, and while I’m intrigued by all of them, there’s one in particular I hope is the hero in Bound to Submit. Once you read Hard to Serve, I think readers will want his story as well;)

Excerpt

Mia found herself alone with a kinda pissed-off looking Master Kyler. He wore angry well. As in, the harshness of the set of his jaw and the tight press of his lips and the narrow cut of his eyes—they were all hot, especially coming from a Dom. But she didn’t understand it.

“Um. Hello, Sir,” she finally said when he didn’t say anything.

“Mia,” he said, his gaze raking over her. “You look absolutely stunning tonight.” His voice was like gravel, rough and strained.

“Thank you. Are you okay, Sir?” she asked.

He shook his head. “I don’t…I don’t know.”

“Do you want to sit and talk?” Mia asked, concern for him flooding her.

Suddenly, Kyler pinned her to the cool wall. He braced his hands on either side of her head, and he was erect against her belly. She wanted to drop into a crouch and take him into her mouth. “Do you want vulgar honesty or watered-down politeness?” he asked.

The promise of those words made her core clench with need. “Vulgar honesty.”

He nailed her with a blue-eyed stare. “I don’t want to sit and talk. I want to fuck. Hard. I want to be aggressive. Maybe I even want to be a little mean.”

Mia’s heart was suddenly a runaway train in her chest. Because, sign her up! She let out a shaky breath. “That sounds…like someone’s going to have a good night,” she managed.

Kyler dropped his head to her shoulder on a groan. He knocked his forehead against the bone there once, twice.

“Did I say the wrong thing?” she asked. Because he was totally confusing her.

“That’s the thing, Mia. I don’t know.” He lifted his gaze to hers again.

“How can I help?” she asked.

For a moment, he closed his eyes and inhaled deeply, and when he opened them, it was like he’d centered himself and made some kind of resolution. “Are you game for what I just described?” He fingered the chunky silver-and-gold choker she wore around her neck.

Heat swept over her, her body already answering, already preparing. “Yes, Sir. I am.”

He gave a tight nod and backed up a step. “Let me show you the room I have in mind.” Taking her hand, he led her down the long hallway that shot off the side of the nave. She wasn’t sure if this was still part of the church building or something else, but she didn’t have long to wonder before Kyler stopped at a door and keyed in a code.

Lights came on as the door opened, and Kyler guided her inside with his hand at the small of her back.

Just the room’s theme turned Mia on. Concrete floor. Cinder-block walls with peeling paint. Light thrown from bare light bulbs surrounded by little cages. An iron cot bed with only a white fitted sheet. Rusted metal cabinet at the side that undoubtedly held a variety of toys and supplies. It looked like a basement or a warehouse—a place where a woman in a beautiful cocktail dress had no business being. A role started taking shape in her mind.

“Do you see where my head is tonight, Mia?” Master Kyler asked, his body almost rigid with tension.

God, she was going to enjoy helping him work out whatever had him so wound up. “Yes, Sir.”
