A relic from the Cold War that shouldn't even exist... After failing on her previous mission, secret agent Kizzie Baldwin is ticked off that she's lost her chance at Formula 3-19. But when a black market explosives dealer goes missing, along with all traces of a salted bomb the Agency has never heard of, redemption is at hand. There's just one problem: she must make a deal with nefarious Dom Xander Duquesne to get it. Throwing caution off a cliff, Kizzie once again jumps headfirst into the BDSM lifestyle. It's a world she knows nothing about, and she's learning on the fly from a teacher she can't trust. With Xander holding her collar, Kizzie must crawl into the dark labyrinth of The Puppet Master--a drugged out Dom known for cruelty to his subs and a huge chip on his shoulder. If Kizzie makes it out alive with Intel on the weapon Xander's paid for, he'll give her 3-19, free and clear. Submission isn't even in Kizzie's vocabulary, and Xander's still not her Master. But will she learn to call him 'Sir'? Note: Includes book 1 Shaken & StirredInterview with the AuthorQ: What makes the Kizzie Baldwin series special?A: A lot of things, but mainly this series reflects the types of stuff I like to read. When I'm perusing the top picks lists, I tend to reach for thrillers and erotic romances but find that one usually lacks what I want from the other -- the thriller has no sex or real love story to speak of, and the erotica and romance have no fast-paced, action and adventure-style plot. The Kizzie Baldwin series solves that problem, blending the genres and fully fleshing out the different plot lines. There's a kickass, snarky lead female in Kizzie --seriously, if James Bond were a woman, he'd be Kizzie Baldwin-- and her sexy, rich, alpha male love interest Xander. The domination and submission aspect of the novels ramps things up since D/s is a relationship that requires a great deal of trust, but with Kizzie being a secret agent, and Xander being a criminal, trust isn't something either has a ton of (any of?). All in all, the Kizzie Baldwin series is designed to keep you up long after your bedtime, flipping pages or swiping over your screen because you have to know what happens next!Q: Why the CIA?A: There's a lot of imaginative latitude when your main character works for a covert group inside a government agency. Plus, it's a world that's already mired in confusion and conspiracy and dark, shadowy deeds, which plays well for all the characters and events that take place. Q: Do I have to read the books in order?A: YES. I repeat, YES they have to be read in order. When Kizzie and Xander first came to me, they were supposed to be a ten thousand-word short story for an anthology. But these two just wouldn't go away. So, to get their story told, I had to leave that first one (Shaken & Stirred) as a 'To Be Continued', setting the tone for the rest of the books. That said, the books don't just snip off at a random location, and each story does solve its primary objective. Here's the order to make sure you don't miss a single thing:1. Shaken & Stirred 2. Wallbanger3. Sake Bomb4. On The Rocks5. Dirty (Coming Soon) Q: So, why should readers give these books a go?A: Because the books blend action, thrills, heat, and heart with a ton of snark. There are lots of laughs and enough twists and turns to give you whiplash. If that's your thing, you'll love this series and the characters populating the exotic locales that make up this world. Q: Will there be more Kizzie and Xander?A: Does the sun set in the west? I'm often asked when the series will end, and I always answer the same way: I have no idea. But that's the best part. I don't know where this series will go, so we're all on this thrill ride together!Thanks for reading!Kizzie Baldwin Erotic Thriller Series eBook Categories:- Romantic Suspense- Espionage Thrillers- Erotic Thriller Series- BDS
