Savannah Gentry, now Savi Baker, escaped the torture and degradation forced upon her by a sadistic father for eleven years and has made a safe life for herself and her daughter. When her father threatens her peace of mind—and her daughter's safety—Savi runs to Damián Orlando for protection. Their one day together eight years earlier changed both their lives and resulted in a secret she can no longer hide. But being with Damián reawakens feelings she wants buried—and stirs up an onslaught of disturbing flashbacks that leave her shaken to the core with little hope of ever being a sexual being again.
Damián has his own dragons to fight, but has never forgotten the one perfect day he spent with Savannah in a cave at the beach. He will go to the ends of the earth to protect Savi and her daughter, but can never be the whole man she deserves after a firefight in Iraq. Besides, the trauma of war and resulting PTSD has led him to find his place as the Masters at Arms Club's favorite sadist. Savi needs someone gentle and loving, not the broken man he has become. But he sees that the lifestyle he's come to embrace also can help Savi regain control of her life and sexuality. How can he not help redirect her negative thoughts and actions if she needs him?
Interview with Kellie Hunter
Kellie Hunter came to me on Facebook to say she enjoyed my first two books and mentioned that she was active in the BDSM lifestyle. That was probably six months ago. She became one of my beta readers for Nobody's Hero and has been a great help to me with Savi's character in Nobody's Perfect. Because I am not in the community, I rely heavily on those who are to help me "get it right."
Both Kellie and Savi find it very difficult to show emotion by crying because of past abuse--seeing it as a sign of weakness so having their Dom or Top bring them to the point of tears is very cathartic.
Kellie recently wrote me after reading a scene I wrote for Savi and said it was as if I had gotten inside her head. That is what every writer wants to hear!
Kellie was recently interviewed by my assistant, Leagh Christensen. I'd like to share that with you now.
How or when did you realize you were a submissive?
Probably when I was in college, at the age of 17
Describe what being submissive means to you.
It means that you find strength in serving and pleasing others
How did you go about finding the appropriate means once you realized what you needed? How would you suggest new subs find safe ways to practice?
I found a wonderful Man who could fulfill my needs, if you are single and just starting I would suggest to do lots of research, go to functions, most communities have a community, and certainly if you are going to play with someone, negotiate and make sure you watch them play with others at least 3 to 5 times.
What is your point of view on sadomasochism (SM), as you know Damián in Kally's book is now a sadist and Savi is a masochist. Do you do anything with that level of pain or use any edge control practices with your Dom?
I have a hard time releasing emotions so for me it is a way to let go, to be able to cry and get what I need to release emotions I don't usually know how to release. For me it is almost like a therapy, to get rid of the stress and tears that I hold inside.
What is it like emotionally to be on the receiving end of a Dom's attentions?
It is flattering, especially if you care about that person. It makes you feel special that they chose you to play with and that you are the one holding their attention.
How does being a mother to small children affect your being a 24/7 submissive?
You find other ways to serve, like dinner, laundry, like having him pick out your clothes and pj's, kneeling before bed at his feet to keep you in the sub frame of mind.
Lastly, what is your favorite part about being a sub in a long-term relationship?I love having the trust that comes with knowing someone for a long period of time. Having them know you so intimately that you no longer need to negotiate because you trust them to know your responses enough to stop if needed.
I don't know about you all, but I am dying to read this book! Nobody's Perfect is the long awaited book in this series. It features Damien and Savannah- the two with the most emotional and physical issues to date. We met them in book one, Master At Arms, where we were hooked with their tragic stories from day one. We got glimpses of them with the last two books released, but it wasn't enough to tide us over, at least not for me that is. I haven't stopped thinking of these two characters since the beginning.
I have been counting down the days for this book- seriously! I love books where the characters have deep emotional issues to overcome. It's going to be a long and hard ride for these two, and just the kind of ride I love the most. I just know in the end, it's going to show how strong they really are on in the inside to battle these demons on the inside. And with the support of their love on each of their sides, well, there's no stopping them now. Of course it's going to take a lot of work on each of their parts at first, but I am extremely eager to see this story unfold.
And if you haven't read this series yet, that's ok. Kally Has marked Master At Arms FREE for ever! Yay! Go Kally!
