He had her the longest… he hurt her the most…
Anna “Pony” Mitchell should be dead. Abandoned by her Menagerie sisters and shot by the only man she’s ever loved, now the hospital has declared her “unfit.” She has thirty days to prove them wrong or spend the rest of her life hospitalized.
He lost his leg, his job… and almost his life.
Marcus Hawke knows he’s not much good to anyone anymore, but when an old friend calls in a favor, he doesn’t say no. It’s been years since he’s deprogrammed anyone this badly wounded, but for every inch of progress she gains, he soon realizes he’s got bigger problems. It doesn’t matter what lies he tells himself, she isn’t just a job anymore.
He wants her…
But after all she’s been through, she deserves better than what a half-man can give.
She wants him…
But after all he’s been through, he’s made it clear he’ll never be her dom.
For two people at rock bottom, there’s only one choice left to make: Do they help each other heal… or drown?
I take my pleasure where and when I please.
But nothing’s sweeter than the taste of a submissive woman--one who wants revenge.
She’s smart, brazen, fearless when she ought not to be.
I’ll teach her the monster living in the shadows can and will hunt her back.
But the creatures who killed her sister want to take her from me.
I won't allow it.
She belongs to me now.
Only by me.
Note: Her Vampire Master is a standalone romance by USA Today Bestselling Author Maren Smith starring a dominant vampire and the human he comes to crave. No cheating, HEA guaranteed. It is book one in the Midnight Doms series, a spinoff of Renee Rose and Lee Savino's bestselling Bad Boy Alpha series.
Hired to write a promotional review for a pirate-themed BDSM resort, Maddy looks on the opportunity as if it were a once-in-a-lifetime vacation—a vacation that comes complete with a tall, dark, arrogant and masterfully good-looking Dominant thrown in. It’s been four years since her disaster of a divorce, and though she knows she’s neither young enough nor thin enough to keep the attention of someone like Dominick, the allure of an illicit island fling is more than she can resist. Still, flings – like most relationships – don’t last, and better than anyone, Maddy knows the pain of letting herself get too close.
For Dominick, however, a little pain is all in a day’s pleasure. Maddy might not know him well enough now, but she’s about to find out that the world’s most infamous Dungeon Master never did take ‘no’ for an answer.
Publisher's Note: While this is the seventh book in Maren Smith's hugely popular Masters of the Castle series, it can be read as a standalone, as can all the others. The series numbers are just a guideline as to recommended reading order.

Kaylee Waters has saved her pennies for almost two years, mentally debated for six months, changed her mind no less than two-dozen times and finally purchased a three-day pass to what promised to be the vacation of a lifetime: The Castle, the kinkiest theme-resort-to-end-all-vacation-resorts.
So what if she'd fibbed a little on her online application? (Everyone does!) So what if she'd never "actually" engaged in BDSM before? (She's thought about it a lot.) So what if she'd never even been spanked? (She's read tons of books.) This was the Castle, after all, and it promised to change everything. Unfortunately, her first scenario is a catastrophe and sends her from the room in tears, only to be sent to Master Marshall's office - like a bad girl sent before the principal.
Marshall Leaf, founding partner of The Castle, has seen a lot in the three years since the resort opened, but Ms. Kaylee Waters pretty much takes the prize. As far as he can determine, the only truthful thing on her application is her name, and he's not even completely sure about that. She lied so heinously about her past experiences (which are exactly zilch) that what he should do is refund her money and put her on a fast bus home. Instead, for reasons he can't quite understand, he gives her the first spanking of her life, and then sends her back out into the resort. He doesn't give a damn whether she wanted the spanking or not: it was exactly what she needed.
Kaylee should be ecstatic. She's already gotten a spanking, and The Castle is perfect: everything she's dreamed of - and more. She can be anything she wants: sassy maid, naughty schoolgirl, bad "baby" in the nursery, captured princess in the dungeon. But, even though the ice has been broken, why isn't she still fitting in anywhere? Why does everything just feel wrong? Why does she break the rules again and again, and find herself right back in Master Marshall's office?

Then, an unexpected ray of good luck: From out of the blue, she's offered a job. All she has to do is cater a lavish candy party - one day, 900 people, and her store would be financially set all the way through summer. The only catch? The venue is a place called the Castle, a fantasy BDSM resort inhabited by some of the hottest Masters she has ever met. And one of them just happens to be Parker, the same man she's been drooling over for the last year.
What a coincidence! Or is it? Sinclair always knew there was something wrong with him. What she didn't know, was how he could make WRONG feel so wonderfully RIGHT.
Publisher's Note: While this is the fourth book in Maren Smith's hugely popular Masters of the Castle series, it can be read as a standalone, as can all the others. The series numbers are just a guideline as to recommended reading order.
Marked Brides is a collection featuring six brand-new, scorching hot shifter romances from six wonderfully talented authors. This exquisitely sexy box set includes the following novellas:
Versoth Bride by Maren Smith
Josie anticipated hardship when she agreed to work on Terra Arcus, but she didn't expect to be stripped bare, put on the auction block, and sold to the highest bidder with her bottom still sore from a strapping to curb her defiance. Though she escapes the brutes who bought her, she soon ends up in the hands of three even more fearsome beasts who decide to claim her as their mate.
Mate of the Mamuut by Morganna Williams
When Shiloh arrives on Terra Arcus she quickly discovers that she has been deceived. She was not brought to this planet to study the native wildlife, but to be sold at auction. As the giant beast who bought her carries her off, she quickly discovers that he will not hesitate to spank her soundly for any disobedience before claiming her beautiful body long and hard and thoroughly.
Wildcat by Delta James
Upon awakening to find a rugged brute in her cabin claiming to be her mate, Salem expresses her lack of interest in accompanying him to his planet by means of a knife thrown at his head. Unfortunately for her, he wasn't asking, and she will be coming with him to Terra Arcus whether she likes it or not. The only thing up to her is how sore her bottom will be when they arrive.
A Polar Hope by Pepper North
After losing her job on Earth, Marisol signs up for a cultural exchange program with Terra Arcus, but upon her arrival she is stripped and put up for auction. When the northern clan chief recognizes her as his own, he claims her and escorts her back to his lands. While their future children are the hope for the clan's survival, she captures her stern mate's heart as well. He will ease her adaptation to her new life with a firm hand and a loving embrace.
Daddy's Stowaway by Allysa Hart
When Callie is caught stowing away aboard a ship bound for Terra Arcus, she ends up in the custody of a stern, handsome scientist who quickly takes on the role of her firm-handed daddy. Her efforts to deceive him soon earn her a sound spanking on her bare bottom followed by a thorough, intimate medical examination, and before long he has decided to claim her as his mate.
Their Fated Mate by Lesley Clark
After signing a contract to spend a year on Terra Arcus performing medical research, Natalie is shocked to instead find herself being stripped and put on shameful display on the auction block. One look at her beautiful naked body convinces an alpha wolf and his beta to buy her, and to her surprise it isn't long before their dominance awakens an uncontrollable mating fever within her.
Publisher's Note: The books of Marked Brides include spankings and sexual scenes. If such material offends you, please don't buy this collection.
Then she meets Selena, and suddenly Chelsea’s a slavegirl in a BDSM wedding, an unwilling confidant in a secret Sara can’t bear to tell Jackson, the enigma Master Marshall just can’t figure out...and then there’s Kade. The big bad wolf, Selena calls him. The biggest and baddest the Castle has ever known. Everyone warns her to steer clear of the playboy Master, but right from the very start steering clear is the one thing Chelsea can’t bring herself to do. From the moment he smiles at her - the moment his experienced touch burns into her skin - she’s drawn.
Poor Little Red, she never had a chance.
Publisher's Note: While this is the fifth book in Maren Smith's hugely popular Masters of the Castle series, it can be read as a standalone, as can all the others. The series numbers are just a guideline as to recommended reading order.
Now, years later, Jackson is chief of security for The Castle - the hottest BDSM fantasy resort in the country. Summoned to the dungeon on a trouble call, Sara is the last person he expects to find huddled up against the bathroom wall. After three long years filled with even longer nights, he's had plenty of time to consider all he'd do if ever she fell back into his life. When he sees his chance, he doesn't hesitate. One day - that's all he has before the buses come and Sara runs again. One day to rekindle old passions, to bury old fears, to prove once and for all just what is illusion and what is not.

It started with Piggy. It escalated with Kitty. It ends with Puppy.
For almost a year, Ethen O’Dowell has been locked behind bars and yet Puppy is far from free. A legal ward of her parents, she shares her bedroom with Pony, the only part of her old, submissive life that she has left... apart from the guilt, the fear, and the weekly punishments Ethen dishes out every time they visit him. Escape is all Puppy dreams about. Escape and somehow finding the courage to once more become the person she used to be--someone who lived life on her own terms and never let herself be afraid. Sadly, those days are long over, and as the old saying goes, there’s just no getting them back again. Or is there?
It’s a dead night at Black Light when ex-military man Carlson Garvey decides all he wants is a quiet drink and some downtime to practice his Shibari. What he isn’t expecting is the petite brunette who plops down at his table, squeaks out a terrified hello, and promptly flees again. There’s a story here and although he doesn’t know it, Carlson doesn’t need to. He recognizes a broken soul when he sees one.
Sometimes the only thing a broken person needs is the right Dom willing to intervene.
Especially when it comes to Master Reeve, whose rough touch and dark authority make her body respond in ways she’s not at all prepared to understand. Sandy will do anything to get her story, and that includes pretending to be his submissive. What she doesn’t yet know is how much of what she’s doing is really ‘let’s pretend’ and how much is the real her, giving her heart to a man she has every intention of betraying.
Publisher’s Note: Like all the other stories in the Masters of the Castle series, this contemporary romance can be enjoyed as a standalone. It contains elements of power exchange, explicit language, and MFM ménage scenes.
