Ella's Turning What? Birthday Celebration...



 I want to say thank you to all of the wonderful authors and bloggers who took part in this celebration. I'm flattered to have had such a great turn out. I also want to thank all of my amazing readers for hopping this weekend. I hope you find lots of new places to hang and books to read. If I'm a new-to-you author welcome! You can connect with me on FB too!


So, yeah... I'm celebrating the big 4-0 this month. I can hardly believe it myself! I'm actually doing this hop a week before my birthday since I will be in Savannah at the Authors After Dark Convention on my big day. If you're there please come find me. I'd love to celebrate with you! I can't think of a more exciting way to spend such a milestone birthday than to be surrounded by people who appreciate and adore reading and writing as much as I do. That's an incredible Birthday gift!

I know you have lots of stops to make so I won't keep you. I thought I'd introduce you to my Master M. Collection. The first two books in the series are available now wherever eBooks are sold. There will be four total. All books stand alone and can be read in any order.




Can the sub teach the Dom to play?

Natural submissive Gracie Miller thought she had found her other half in Cade Jameson. Not only did he help her through a difficult time in her life, in the bedroom he brought her more pleasure than she could have ever imagined. They seemed perfect for each other.

Cade knew what he wanted in the bedroom. Gracie brought out his domineering side and ignited his passion. But he feared he was too dominant for this beautiful, naïve girl, who was so young and impressionable, so he ended their relationship.

Two and a half years later, Gracie returns to town a new woman. She had moved to the city and found a "Master" who showed her what she was truly capable of. Now she's back and wants to show Cade exactly what kind of submissive she could be for him.

But after hearing all that she's experienced, Cade now wonders if he's dominant enough to satisfy her. Can he be the man Gracie needs him to be?

Content Warning: graphic sex, BDSM themes



***



What happens when a Dominant falls for his not-so-submissive attorney?

Martin Abrams, owner of Master M's BDSM club, has become unfulfilled with his lifestyle. Ever since his sub, Gracie, left to marry her true love, Martin has lost his way. Living the life of the head Dominant in his circle isn't as appealing as it once was. Something seems to be missing.

Sassy lawyer Arianna Covington relocates to New York City after a humiliating divorce. She's looking for a fresh start when she agrees to become Martin's exclusive attorney. She's intrigued by his domineering personality and wants to know why women kneel at his feet.

Their attraction is undeniable despite Ari's initial beliefs that she will never submit to Martin's desires. But Martin is up for the challenge. Arianna is more than he ever imagined in a woman. He vows to claim her heart, with or without the games. Who will surrender first?

Content Warning: contains explicit language and graphic sexual content

Featuring Cade and Gracie from Make Me Stay. Both books stand alone.
