A reverent touch to a set of suede-covered cuffs, and Jillian Dosh unwittingly takes the first step into a world that she never knew existed. Busted while she’s making a stealthy visit to Three Divisions Lifestyle Emporium, Jillian can’t believe she’s face-to-face with her fantasy lover. Much more potent up front and personal, Leo Straton’s commanding presence intrigues and scares her at the same time. Can fantasy become reality?

Recognizing the voluptuous Jillian as the perfect submissive for him, Leo begins a journey to pull her into his world of D/s. She’s innocent, imaginative, strong-willed, and dangerous to his heart. She’s his butterfly—stuck in the chrysalis of the vanilla world and ready to spread her wings. Overcoming her initial hesitancy, Jillian begins to blossom under his tutelage. But an innocent deception may bring this new love to a crashing halt.

Three Divisions, Book 1 ignites the senses, fires up your libido, and makes you crave to be owned by this Dom.

Excerpt

Finally acquiring the strength to look away, Jillian realized that Leo wasn’t moving. He wasn’t posing, either. It was just a silent, motionless wait as he allowed her to absorb his presence, and she took full advantage. His head was slightly lowered, yet he was staring directly at her. The soft, recessed lighting circling the room cast highlights against the shoulder-length dark hair now slightly obscuring his handsome face. He was peeking out from behind a few sexy, mussed strands, making him even that more mysterious and alluring.

The faint light caused every muscle in his body to stand out in stark relief. Thick muscles capped the top of his broad shoulders while sculpted, strong arms hung calmly at his sides. His massive chest, sprinkled lightly with hair, rose and fell in a steady rhythm. Each breath showcased his perfectly delineated abdominals and the yummy muscles running along each hip and pointing invitingly to his groin. Large, defined thighs and calf muscles held up the delicious frame. Even his feet were beautiful. She sighed and glanced up when his rich, husky voice drifted to her ears.

“Your turn, Jillian. I need to see you.”

Despite the warnings screaming inside her head to call a halt to everything that was happening, her mother’s familiar words berating her existence, and the fear of the unknown punching madly on her ‘run’ button, Jillian kicked her sandals to the side. Life was too damn short. To miss an opportunity of being anywhere near this dynamic man would be criminal. She hated breaking the law.

Jillian reached down and gripped the sides of her dress. Slowly she lifted it over her head and let it pool on the floor next to her feet. She hadn’t planned to be in this situation tonight and suddenly wished she’d worn sexier undergarments. Despite the plain white bra and panties, she found his eyes riveted on her body, as if she was clad in something straight out a Victoria’s Secret catalog. The sight strengthened her resolve to remain and let him look his fill.

Leo’s command was quick, rumbling, and precise. “Off.”

She shivered as that strong, unwavering sound found only in her dreams finally hit her ears. This was it. The moment of truth. Everything would be bared to him. There was no more hiding. Keeping her eyes locked to his, Jillian unclipped the front clasp of the bra, drew the cups away from her heavy breasts, and let the material fall from her arms. Pushing the panties down, she tried to be as graceful as possible while her foot nudged them next to her dress. Glancing up, she saw that he was assessing everything.

Instantly, her nipples tightened and drew a soft gasp from her lips. Instinct kicked in and she reached up to cover her breasts, but caught herself before she succeeded. She lowered her arms and tried to keep from shaking out of her skin. His low, sultry voice sent additional tingles racing her spine.

“I see how hard you fight to keep from covering yourself, Jillian. That you’ve refrained without me having to tell you has pleased me immensely. I know that was difficult for you.”

Knees trembling, Jillian was unable to hold back her question. Swallowing hard, she gestured toward his groin. “You’re…you’re not hard. That makes me think that you don’t like what you see.”

Leo slowly shook his head. “No, baby. I like everything about you. Very much so. You’re stunning. More than I could have ever imagined.” He reached down, palmed his cock, and made two slow, steady strokes from the base to the tip. Opening his hand, it rolled out and rested against his thigh again. No different from before.

For a brief instant, she panicked and thought that he might be impotent. He quickly dispelled that theory.

“I have control, Jillian. That’s something you’ll expect me to maintain throughout our encounters. I’ll come to demand it of you as well.”

Book Description:

As one of the twelve Guardians, Urian has spent the last several centuries in a constant battle to keep the inhabitants of Earth’s Realms under control. Humanity has to evolve, hell beasts need to die, and Immortals need mates. But lately, Uri's mind is overrun with thoughts of when his sexy voyeur will find him again, watching him from the shadows, continuing their wicked game. All Guardians are forbidden contact with the little goddess and her brothers, but his need for her escalating, he finds it increasingly difficult to keep from pinning her down on the nearest surface and making her his.

Alexandra has managed to evade the Guardians and being cast out from the human Realm for centuries, ever since the Creators sent the Gods to sleep for their sins against humanity and banished all Immortals. Always sensing that she was needed on Earth, only once has Alex gone against her instincts and the price she paid will forever haunt her. It is for that reason she forces herself to stay away from the only male who has ever truly enticed her. The only one who has ever made her long for what she knows is dangerous.

In a desperate need to help her beloved brother, she will have to go to the enthralling Guardian, her dark obsession, and even though he will surely attempt to exile her, she won't go easily…

Warning: This book contains explicit and sizzling sex scenes with big dominant males. MFM, ménage, and light bondage.


My Thoughts:

I’m just going to go ahead and start this by saying JUST BUY THE SERIES!!! I’m loving it!! The only reason it took me so long to get through the books was because of a sudden promotion at work that came with double the work load.

Every spare moment I’ve had in between various duties to one faction or another, I’ve been engrossed in this series. I’ve only added the buy link to the first novel and the description of the first novel so there are no spoilers given away.  I’m going to attempt to continue the “No Spoilers” theme here, so bear with me.

Setta Jay has created a world that I absolutely adore. I LOVE Greek Mythology, and while I thought Sherrilyn Kenyon had ruined me for all others (in that I LOVE her books and thought no one would come close), Setta Jay has brought me right back in! If you love being taken away into a fantasy world so you don’t have to face reality for a little bit, READ THIS SERIES! If you like graphic sex scenes, and talk — READ THIS SERIES!

If I had to point out one fault, I feel as if some of the terms used seemed a bit plebeian when side-by-side with other terms that happen to be in Latin and/or Greek.  Alexandra’s “knowings” being one of them. But I also understand that with all of the terminology she has going, along with the characters, she’s actually provided a very helpful glossary of terms at the beginning of each book to help you remember who is whom and what is what. It’s wonderful and, did I mention I love it?

Honestly, the price cannot be beat, the books are a wonderfully complete world full of different villains (not just the same one for book after book after book, which gets old very quickly), and different obstacles for each couple to overcome. She writes three-dimensional characters with fascinating back stories of their own, with personalities of their own and personalities that complement their mates’. Also, the idea of the perfect mate — whether the term “soul mate” is used or not, is a romantic idea that I can completely get behind.

Is it realistic? Absolutely not. Which is why I love it. When I’m reading for pleasure, I’m reading something fictional that gets me away from reality and helps me escape the craziness of my everyday life. If you’re looking for that as well, seriously, buy the series and keep checking back to see what she comes out with next. I know I will.

PS> So far, as contrary as he is, my favorite Guardian is Dorian. You’ll understand when you get there.
