Alexandr’s Cherished Submissive by Ann Mayburn Blog Tour

7 years ago

From the moment Alexandr Novikov met the young auburn haired woman bartending at her uncle’s pub in Ireland, he’d been fascinated by her delicate beauty and fiery spirit. Unfortunately, he is in no position to offer her the kind of safe, normal life she deserves so he attempts to put her from his mind for her own good. Something easier said than done when a deal is struck between the Novikov Bratva and the Irish Cleary Gang, an arrangement that includes Alex and his men being on twenty-four hour bodyguard duty with the object of his forbidden desires.

Jessica Venture came to Dublin to spend some time bonding with her birth mother’s family, a connection she desperately needs after losing her adoptive parents within a year of each other back in the States. The last thing she expected was to fall in love with a handsome, mysterious, and sometimes scary man who was well known for his sexual appetite, but rejected her attempts to seduce him.

There are outside forces that will do anything to keep them apart, and Jessica will have to make a desperate choice that will change their lives forever.

Warning: There is light bondage, domestic discipline, spanking, and an F/F scene that is a voyeuristic Dom’s delight.

HOLY CRAP! I don’t even know if I can put into words how much I loved this book. I have read all the other books in the series and they are just as amazing. First off this is the first part of a two part story. Yeah it ends in a cliff hanger but it isn’t a horrible one where you are just so ticked off because you are left hanging. Jessica and Alexandr’s story is filled with so much emotion and is such a great story that you can’t help but not put it down. I tried to turn my Kindle off so I could get some sleep and I just couldn’t stop thinking about it so I had to keep reading. I laughed, I cried, I screamed and I got seriously turned on a time or two. Jessica is a fiery gal who looks so sweet and innocent but she is freaky and I loved her. Alexandr is of course the perfect alpha male and with one look or one word you are just melting. Their journey is one I enjoyed reading even when my heart was ripped out and I was left feeling destroyed. I can’t wait to find out how it all turns out. This is an amazing series, one I will be sure to read again and again.

Alexandr's Cherished Submissive is book three in the Submissive's Wish Series. It's a look into the past, what made Alex and Jessica what they are. I can't wait to get to Alexandr's Reluctant Submissive to see how it all plays out. Reading books one and two, I knew something was going to happen but the cliff hanger was a perfect lead into the next book.

Alex is in the Russian Mob. It's all he knows. He does his job well until he gets distracted and the sweet niece of an Irish mobster catches his eye. He doesn't ever lose focus but something about her is drawing him to her. She knows he's a player and is afraid of losing her heart. When she finally lets her heart lead her he becomes a different man.

I am so excited for the next part of this story. Alexandr's Cherished Submissive was a sexy intense read. The steaminess kept me turning pages and the story line held me there. Great combination.

I thoroughly enjoyed the previous two books in the series – who can fail to be captivated by the strength and depth of feelings that these tough, rough Alpha males exude? Alex is definitely no exception – and Jessica is his perfect foil.

This is a long, detailed and intense read, which takes its time to get to the heat, but then sears the pages with the dynamics of an amazing relationship. The lovely detail about the chess board, the way that Jess's innocence is protected yet explored. I really can recommend this as an excellent read ... the only downside is waiting for the second installment – which is promised for this autumn.... I hope you are busy writing Ms. Mayburn!

With over forty published books, Ann is Queen of the Castle to her husband and three sons in the mountains of West Virginia. In her past lives she's been an Import Broker, a Communications Specialist, a US Navy Civilian Contractor, a Bartender/Waitress, and an actor at the Michigan Renaissance Festival. She also spent a summer touring with the Grateful Dead-though she will deny to her children that it ever happened.

From a young Ann has had a love affair with books would read everything she could get her hands on. As Ann grew older, and her hormones kicked in, she discovered bodice ripping Fabio-esque romance novels. They were great at first, but she soon grew tired of the endless stories with a big wonderful emotional buildup to really short and crappy sex. Never a big fan of purple prose, throbbing spears of fleshy pleasure and wet honey pots make her giggle, she sought out books that gave the sex scenes in the story just as much detail and plot as everything else-without using cringe worthy euphemisms. This led her to the wonderful world of Erotic Romance, and she's never looked back.

Now Ann spends her days trying to tune out cartoons playing in the background to get into her 'sexy space' and has accepted that her Muse has a severe case of ADD.
