Author's Website

Retired Marine Master Sergeant Adam Montague has battled through four war zones, but now finds himself running from Karla Paxton, who has declared war on his heart. With a twenty-five year age difference, he feels he should be her guardian and protector, not her lover. But Karla's knack for turning up in his bed at inopportune times is killing his resolve to do the right thing. Karla isn't a little girl anymore—something his body reminds him of every chance it gets.

Karla Paxton fell in love with Adam when she was a sixteen-year-old runaway and he rescued her. Now, nine years later, she's determined to make Adam see her as a woman. But their age difference is only part of the problem. Adam has been a guardian and protector for lost and vulnerable souls most of his life, but a secret he has run from for more than three decades has kept him emotionally unable to admit he can love anyone. Will she be able to lower his guard long enough to break down the defenses around his heart and help him put to rest the ghosts from his past? In her all-out war to get Adam to surrender his heart, can the strong-willed Goth singer offer herself as his submissive—and at what cost to herself?

CONTENT INFO: This couple's story begins in Masters at Arms and continues in Nobody's Angel. This is not a stand-alone novel. This book contains very erotic scenes that include BDSM (bondage-discipline-domination-submission-sadism-masochism-master-slave)—but these ALWAYS will be safe, sane, and consensual (SSC) acts told in a more realistic approach to the BDSM genre. Includes rough sex, Shibari (rope bondage and suspension), anal play, cunnilingus, fellatio, flogging, sex toys, and intensely erotic "vanilla" sexual acts.

My Review -

OMG I really don't know where to being. First of all this cannot be read as a stand-alone YOU HAVE TO START AT THE BEGINNING WITH MASTERS AT ARMS!!! Ever since reading Adam's intro in that story I could not wait to read this book and it was absolutely amazing! Not only were there some of the hottest BDSM scenes I have ever read, but there were so many emotional moments that left me in tears.

When I was not reading this book I was thinking about it and craving it until I had the time to pick it up and continue reading it. Everything else was forgotten and all I wanted to do was just get lost in the story with Adam and Karla.

I have to say the author made the characters FEEL SO ALIVE that I felt that I was right there watching everything play out. All the characters in the series seem SO REAL that you feel that they are actual people who are sharing their experiences with you.

Adam may be 50 years and feels that he is too old for 25 year old Karla, but his body sure doesn't show it. Not only does he still have a ripped physique with steel hard muscles and a six pack he has the stamina of a young stallion who really enjoys rough sex. YOWZA!!! Now where can we find men like him!!!

From beginning to end this book had me completely engrossed as Karla tried to prove to Adam that she wasn't a little girl anymore and that the only man she ever loved and will love is him. However, not only does Adam feel that he is too old for her (despite that his body aches for her) he feels that he would be betraying her parents' trust, his loyalty to his dead wife and he truly feels that he cannot offer Karla wants she needs which is love. Due to past trauma in his life he feels that he is incapable of giving someone love (caring, protecting, showing passion yes, but not love) because he has put a wall around his heart and refuses to ever feel vulnerable again.

Eventually Karla manages to break his defenses and engages in a very hot sexual relationship with Adam. On one hand Adam craves for her, but on the other he tries to push her away by setting up a Master/slave (TPE=Total Power Exchange) relationship thinking that it will cause her to run out the door. Little does Adam know that Karla loves him so deeply and completely that she will do anything for him to be with him including total submission. As they engage in the Master/slave relationship Karla discovers she does has a submissive side that she embraces openly which at the same time makes Adam feel completely drawn to her submission to him. Of course things do not go smoothly as the book progresses and obstacles occur which will have you wanting to scream at Adam to give in to his heart.

This book will definitely puts you on an emotional rollercoaster ride where there will be times that you will need a cold shower to cool off from the very hot scenes (my God Adam is such a HOT, ALPHA DOM SEX EXPERT!!!) to grabbing tissues because of both Adam and Karla's heartaches (I wanted so badly to hold Adam in my arms so many times).

The secondary characters were fantastic in adding sustenance to the story with their warmth, care and supportive nature. This book provides a glimpse into Damian and Savi's story which is the next book in the series which I can't wait to read.

There are some surprises in this story which I will not disclose, you will have to read the book to find out, but I truly hope that Kallypso gives us more Adam in the future, maybe another book with him and Karla (please Kallypso we love Adam so much we need more of him, he is the perfect male)! :)



  1. I am reading Master At Arms right now. I wish the whole series was available right now. I can hardly wait to see when happens next!

  2. Hi Jen!

    Kallypso is has book 1 out which is Masters at Arms and then book 2, 3 and book 4 is coming out in May I think and then there will be a few more I believe. I will be sad when the series ends. I hate it when you fall in love with a character and book series and then it sends and if feels like you will never see them again. :(

  3. Ollie, once again, you have blown me away with your review. Thank you so much.

    As you have probably noticed (and I'm sure Jen will figure out soon), I'm not one to tie up all the conflicts at "the end." In Nobody's Perfect, Marc and Angelina need to deal with some serious snags in their journey to happily ever after. (I did leave them happy for now in Nobody's Angel--but they didn't know each other well enough for more at that time.

    Of course, Karla being Cassie's best friend, there will be more of Adam and Karla in Nobody's Dream (book 5--due out late summer). And in Nobody's Home (book 6--due out late fall), Adam will have to deal with some of the things that continue to cause him to withhold a part of himself from those he loves.

    As for the series ending, well, I have no plans to end it. I love these characters as much as you do and there are so many secondary characters I want to know more about. Right now, for 2013, I plan a story about Patrick Gallagher (from Nobody's Hero). Oh, and I want to tell the story of Johnny and Kate Montague, Adam's great-great-grandparents (also introduced in Nobody's Hero). It will be a historical Western (erotic, with BDSM elements--at the very least ropes) set ca 1879-83 in Deadwood, S.D. That is going to be a lot of fun--yet another reluctant Montague hero.

    In 2014 and 2015, I'm not sure where I'll go. I may have more Rescue Me characters calling to me. If not, then I would like to have a spin-off series of four books (at least) with the Giardanos (Angelina's brothers). They won't be involved with the Masters at Arms Club like the Rescue Me characters. (It just sort of would squick me out if they came in and found their sister nude or something. )

    So, come along with me on the journey! There's no end in sight!

    Thanks again for reading my books! If anyone will be at Romantic Times Booklovers Convention in Chicago next month, let me know so we can meet! It will be my first.


  4. I have thoroughly enjoyed this series also. Wish I hadn't heard about til later due to now I am forever checking your page and Facebook for the next book. I just started this genre about 15 months ago and can't get enough. Thanks for the great writing and KEEP it coming. Lol.

  5. Thanks, Lauralee! I can't possibly have the next one out sooner than May 21--but if things don't settle down in my life, it could be later in May. But I want to make sure it's in great shape by the time you read it. This couple is very dear to my heart!
