Wanting it All

Brianna Lambert has it all. After escaping an abusive ex-Dom, she has the good fortune to find and marry the love of her life. Markus’ gentle and devoted love has helped her put the pieces of her life back together. There’s only one problem. As the years go by, Brianna finds herself missing the excitement of the BDSM lifestyle. If only she could talk to her gentle husband about her secret desire to be dominated in the bedroom, but as a submissive, she finds she can’t make the words come.
When her ex-Dom resurfaces in her life, the flames of lost desire are reignited, leading Brianna to made a decision with shattering consequences.

As Brianna’s best friend, Tiffany O’Sullivan understands and even shares Brianna’s hidden desire for a alpha male to protect, cherish and punish her when she’s earned it. Still, Tiff is furious when Bri puts her life and marriage at risk for a fling with her abusive ex.

When Brianna disappears, Tiff tracks her down at a local BDSM club where Markus has sent his wayward wife to atone for her infidelity at the hands of his own best friend – club owner, Master Lukus Mitchell. Tiff may go to The Punishment Pit to rescue her best friend, but quickly finds she may need rescuing herself after encountering the Master’s Master. And when Markus is again ready to confront his wayward wife he, too, must come to terms with a secret past.

Wanting It All explores the delicate balance of dominance and submission as well as the importance of trust and communication within D/s relationships with a story that features believable characters along with explicit, no-holds-barred acts of sexual dominance and submission, as well as domestic discipline.

Character Interview:
Molly: I’m so excited to have Lukus join us today for an interview. Thank you for stopping by Lukus. So, tell us what comes next?
Lukus: I am so fucking excited to be getting married soon to the love of my life. The honeymoon is what I’m looking forward to the most.
Molly: Tell us about their dream vacation?
Lukus: I’ve designed my perfect vacation for our upcoming honeymoon and I can’t wait to get Tiff alone for two weeks. We’ll be spending most of our time on a Caribbean island, but will detour past The Castle for a bit of BDSM kink play before heading back home.
Molly: What was the hardest thing for you to overcome that you didn’t expect to be an issue?
Lukus: I never dreamed I’d fall in love, at least not with a non-fulltime submissive. As a master Dom, I guess I’d never let myself look past the near future of playing with different subs all of the time. I don’t miss the playing, but it is so hard to be in love with a woman who isn’t afraid to talk back and challenge me daily.
Molly: Tell us about a typical day in your life.
Lukus: My day has changed since meeting Tiffany. I still spend my days running my security firm, Titan Securities, but my evenings are more often spent at home with Tiff or attending the shows at The Punishment Pit as a spectator instead of the lead Dom.
Molly: What is your biggest fear?
Lukus: Something bad happening to Tiffany is the worst thing that could happen to me.
Molly: Where do you hope to be in five years?
Lukus: LOL – unbelievably, since meeting Tiffany I now see myself as a father for the first time in the future. I can’t wait to see little Tiffany’s running around the loft 5 years from now.
Molly: What is your best childhood memory?
Lukus: I have great memories of summer visits to my grandparent’s farm in southern Illinois.
Molly: What do you enjoy doing on your day off?
Lukus: Spending the day at the loft with Tiffany is perfection. Sleep late, brunch, basketball, movies and sex. Lots and lots of sex.
Molly: What do you feel is your greatest achievement and why?
Lukus: Professionally, I’m very proud of owning two very successful businesses doing things I love to do every day. Personally, I’m proud of myself for letting down my guard long enough to let Tiffany into my life. I never thought I’d settle down, but can’t imagine not having her in my life now.
Molly: Share five of your favorite songs.
Lukus: I have music on at all times. It is arranged in playlists by mood. The playlist that used to get the most play was “Music to Fuck By” but since meeting Tiffany, the previously unused “Music to Make Love By” is getting a lot more playtime. 🙂
Molly: What do you value the most in your friends?
Lukus: I have fucking awesome friends. Markus Lambert has been my best friend since college and he tells it like it is, never pulling punches with me. He is also loyal to a fault. Derek Parker is my business partner and good friend who proved he would put his own life on the line for my Tiffany by getting shot while protecting her from a deranged Jake Davenport.

Securing it All

A shattered marriage is rebuilt for one couple while their two best friends navigate a newly formed relationship – both against the backdrop of the BDSM culture. Brianna Lambert’s infidelity has come with a heavy price.

Now the couple revives their marriage with a new dynamic – and new rules. Markus will no longer just be Brianna’s husband, but her Dom, and in the Punishment Pit where they once again found each other, Markus begins his beautiful wife’s training.

Having it All

Lukus Mitchell is the owner of The Punishment Pit, Chicago’s top BDSM club. As the Master’s Master, he has enjoyed his freedom to play with a stable of subs over the years. He’s never contemplated settling down before, but is growing increasingly bored of the meek, pliant submissives who fail to challenge him.

Then he meets Tiffany O’Sullivan, a beautiful BDSM novice who has always yearned to explore her edgy dreams of submission, but whose sassy mouth always seems to land her in trouble.

Their attraction to each other is intense and immediate, but Tiffany challenges her new Dom like never before. They may start out at opposite ends of a BDSM tug-o-war, but can they meet somewhere in the middle—and if they do, can they both find happiness with the compromise?

Meanwhile, their best friends, Brianna and Markus Lambert, are still reconnecting after a recent event which almost ended their marriage. As awful as it was, it made them both realize not only how much they love each other, but also how important it is to share your darkest desires with your spouse.

Markus is more than willing to accommodate Brianna’s desire to be dominated in the bedroom, yet the couple has more than a few growing pains to work through as the dynamics of their marriage change from vanilla to D/s, with a sprinkle of DD.

Not content with almost having wrecked the Lamberts’ marriage and threatened Tiffany, Jake Davenport remains a threat in the two couples’ lives and relationships, and Lukus soon discovers that Brianna and Tiffany aren’t the only women Jake is targeting.

Can Tiffany find the strength to overcome her fears in order to let Lukus love her not only as a woman, but as his submissive?

Can Lukus deal with the way his new love challenges him at every turn, forcing him to confront fears he never even knew he had?

Can Markus and Lukus protect the women they love when Jake gets too close for comfort?

Find out in this, the third book in the Passion series. With the characters from previous books which readers have come to know and love, as well as introducing new ones, this is a fast-paced, intensely sexy, edgy and emotional story that combines humor, drama, friendship and romance in the way Livia Grant fans have come to expect, and new readers are sure to enjoy.

Protecting it All

Jake Davenport is still on the loose, and Lukus Mitchell and Markus Lambert have had enough. They won’t rest until the sadistic Dom who is threatening their women is behind bars… or dead. They don’t care which. Lukus assembles a team of his top security personnel and heads to California, leaving Markus and Tiffany’s cop brother, Aiden, in Chicago to keep Tiffany and Brianna safe; locked down in the loft at The Punishment Pit.

Derek’s brother Dylan is already in California, staking out the predator, feeling helpless as he watches Jake lure innocent women into his nest of consensual, but brutal, sexual websites. When Jake turns his eye to Hannah Martine, Dylan decides he’s done with just watching.

Hannah moved across the country trying to escape the demons of her past, but the fresh start she’s hoping for is cut short when Jake presses her to accept a tempting job that will solve her financial woes. Once he gets her alone, the sadist uses humiliation, drugs, and brutal force to try to bend Hannah to his will.

Everything comes to a head when Lukus and the gang realize that only someone on the inside can get close enough to collect evidence of the illegal activities needed to put Davenport away. Dylan is furious they are even considering sending Hannah, the innocent woman he has strong feelings, for anywhere near the monster trying to break her.

Will Hannah have the strength to walk back into the demon’s lair? And even if she does, will the threat against Brianna and Tiffany be dissolved? Jake is obsessed with the women from his past, and as authorities close in, he will become more desperate for his revenge against Lukus and Markus.
