This is a combined volume that includes the first two books published in the Rescue Me series. Masters at Arms will remain available as a separate free download, but the original version of Nobody's Angel will no longer be available at some point in November 2013. These versions have had some typos cleaned up, but aren't significantly changed other than covers from the December 2012 versions (or the July 2013 new cover versions).
MASTERS AT ARMS
Masters at Arms begins the journey of three men, each on a quest for honor, acceptance, and to ease his unspoken pain. Their paths cross at one of the darkest points in their lives. As they try to come to terms with the aftermath--forging an unbreakable bond--will they ever truly become masters of their own fates? Or would fate become masters of them?
Marc d’Alessio might own a BDSM club with his fellow military veterans, Adam and Damián, but he keeps all women at a distance. When Marc rescues Angelina Giardano from a disastrous first BDSM experience at his club, however, an uncharacteristic attraction leaves him torn between his safe, but lonely world, and a possible future with his angel. Angelina leaves BDSM behind only to have her dreams plagued by her Italian angel in a wolf mask. When she meets Marc at a bar in her hometown, she can’t shake the feeling she knows him—but has no idea why he reminds her of her angel. Marc’s search-and-rescue partner, widower Luke Denton, confides that he believes Angelina is the angel his wife promised to send him, convincing Marc she’s meant for Luke. While trying to protect Angelina from her abusive ex, though, Marc once again finds her at the Masters at Arms Club where she turns his safe, controlled world upside down. The books in the Rescue Me series are not stand-alone stories. Should be read in order.
While these books are mainstream and told in saga form (each building on the previous books in the series), they do include scenes with graphically described sexual scenes between adult heroes and heroines (some of those scenes including consensual bondage, Dominance/submission dynamics, and other consensual BDSM relationships), adult situations including death of a spouse, loss of a limb, surviving child sexual abuse, rape, and other forms of abuse, as well as scenes with violence and abuse at the hands of villains. Read the Author's Notes at the beginnings of each book before proceeding if you think you might have triggers.
