Mastering her body was easy. Mastering her heart and soul will be an erotic science…

In the vampire-servant relationship, the vampire holds all the power. Being Lord Brian’s research assistant as well as his servant, Debra accepts that, but she craves her Master’s heart. When Brian notices his servant’s unhappiness, he uses methods they both understand to prove just what belonging to him fully means.

You can get this book in the box set above for 0.99 pennies!!! 


Author note – as you may remember, my vampires do a lot of talking inside their servants’ heads, so the italics within the excerpt are pretty important to keep it from being confusing.

Debra. I’m hungry.

Two words that always meant something much more than blood to vampires. 
She found him in Lady Lyssa’s gardens. The old stone bench under an arbor weighted down by Confederate jasmine was his favored place to work when he didn’t have to be in the lab. Brian was studying his laptop now, which provided her time to look at him as she approached.

The moonlight limned his hair, giving the lighter strands a golden-silver luster. The sculpted planes of his face were etched by shadow. With the preternatural vampire stillness that could take him when he was deep in thought, he could have been another marble statue in the maze of gardens. 

Though he often came out of his work as if emerging from the bottom of a still ocean, she felt the moment his focus sharpened on her. It was a transition that never failed to weaken her knees. The awareness in his eyes, a mixture of blood hunger, sexual need and...

No, that was all there was. That was all she could let herself think about. For her part, it was so much more, but that was her problem to handle. She was the human in the relationship. A servant to his needs.

Setting aside his laptop, he brought her between his knees, banded his arms around her and nuzzled her throat. No words. They didn’t need them, did they? She wound her arms around his shoulders, taking advantage of those first few seconds to slide her fingers through his thick hair, her pulse tripping as he slipped the buttons of her blouse and licked the valley between her breasts, tracing the curves. The man could use his tongue, the way a master painter used a fine brush. The pressure, stroke, timing... Totally controlled and excruciatingly perfect.

If a vampire wanted to take his servant in plain view of everyone on the Council estate, no one thought a thing about it. But right now, they were blissfully alone. Brian slid a hand up under her skirt to cup her buttock. When he found his way beneath her panties to stimulate her rim with long fingers, she moaned, rubbing her mound against his chest. The look he lifted to her was full of heat and pleasure, reflecting that dangerous edge that left no doubt—at least in this moment—that he considered her totally his. 

His other hand slid along the curve of her breast, up to her throat, stroking so she lifted her chin, drawing in her breath at the whisper of his own there, the brush of his fangs. Those vibrant hazel eyes watched her every reaction. 

“Stay still,” he said, and she didn’t move a muscle, even though inside all of her nerve endings were dancing. He pressed his mouth against her throat again and, as his fangs penetrated, he slowly slid his fingers inside her. 

Clasp your hands behind your back. He spoke to her mind to mind, but it didn’t lessen the command. When she obeyed, the thrust of her breasts put her tight nipples against his upper chest, an excruciating friction.

My bad girl. Already so hot and wet. You’re going to come without my permission.
No, my lord.
You’re saying no to me?

He took a particular delight in befuddling her usually organized mind like that. She could tell it in the gleam of his gaze, the erotic set of his irresistible mouth as he briefly lifted his head, gave her a look. She gave a desperate half laugh. “No, my lord. I mean, yes. Oh...”

He scissored and thrust his fingers in a rhythm with his drinking that elicited tiny moans, made her lose her train of thought.

You’re going to come for me.

“Yes.” She breathed it, shut her eyes and pressed her jaw against his head as the climax rose up inside her, an irresistible wave. She’d do anything for him.

He locked his arm around her, holding her fast so her sensual writhings worked her against his body. As he took his nourishment from her throat again, he kept stroking and teasing her until she wanted nothing more than to grip his shoulders, hold on forever.

But she wasn’t allowed to touch him until he said she could.

    1. Christina, there are just so many books to read and not enough time in the day, aren't there? (lol) I have a TBR list out the roof, and then when I have time to read, often a nap takes priority. But that's okay - hopefully one day there will be time to do nothing but sit on my porch (as I mentioned to Mlyn below) and read, read, read... Hope you enjoy that book when you get a chance!

  6. I'm a Joeyholic! I was lucky enough to receive a copy of Mastered: 10 Tales of Sensual Surrender-and the first book I read was The Scientific Method. There isn't enough words to tell you the joy in reading about Lord Brain and Debra story! Joey, when you see this(grin) you know what I want. Signed Copy! It's a must signed copy!

    1. And I'm so glad to have you as a reader. Lol - we're working on getting a print version of Scientific Method out there. There will be one at the Authors After Dark conference, a two-story anthology with the lovely Sasha White (she'll have her Mastered story, Unfettered, in it) and I should have some copies left over, so if you win, I should have one to send!

  15. I just preordered Mastered yesterday simply for Brian and Debra's story. I love Joey's Vampires especially Deagan Rei *swoon* I have read the majority of her work and recommend her to all that enjoy erotica or those who need a good love story that pushes their boundaries. If I won I would choose Naughty Bits Part IV: The Highest Bid, the last in the new series of novellas she's written.

    1. Sarah, Gideon says "You know, he's not all that special. He just has that dark vampire broodiness chicks think is sexy."

  18. I would love any first of a series (I already have Naughty bits though) and if its possible to be signed I would be really happy. I am in Brazil though so I understand if that complicates thing, e-book is cool though I would love to add one of Joey's books to my signed book collection (got Sherrilyn Kenyon, George Martin, Kit Rocha and Golden Angel in it :) )

    1. Marta, I've always tried to keep my contests for print or ebook open to international one, because it seems more fair that way. Plus, even though it may cost more to send you a print book, I've found a reader who enjoys one of my stories and talks about it with her friends is worth every penny of that shipping. And even if she doesn't like the story, she might pass it on to someone who does! I'd be honored to have one of my books in such an esteemed collection. Hope you enjoyed Naughty Bits!

    1. Adrianne, wow that's a delightful thing to say. Thank you! Glad you've enjoyed my vampires. I assume you've gone to the fan forum to read the free novellas revisiting the characters, right? I couldn't stay away from them, so there's a free novella about Mason and Jessica, two about Daegan and Gideon, several about Lyssa and Jacob...etc. If you or anyone else wants to read more about that, you can find forum access info at www.storywitch.com/community. I've written a bunch of free vignettes about a lot of my series characters, not just the vampires. And the forum also has very spicy artwork/photography inspired by the books!

    1. Danija, I love hearing that. And as I noted above to Adrianne, since you loved Ben and Marcus's story, be sure and go to the fan forum to read the vignettes if you haven't already. There are two free shorts/novellas about Ben (The Proper Punishment and Retribution) and this past Christmas I did a novella about Marcus and Thomas's first Christmas. Again, you can find forum access info at www.storywitch.com/community. I love revisiting the characters and taking you all along for the ride! Thanks so much...

    2. I've already joined the fan forum. :) You can imagine how excited I was when I saw those vignettes with Ben and Marcus. I liked all the main characters I've read about so far, but they are special to me. Thank you for creating them and for writing wonderful books.
