Author Override: Lorelei James



Ronin’s entire body quivered from the tension he’d placed on all his muscles.

The towel fluttered from her fingertips. She placed her palm over his heart and curled her other hand around the back of his neck. Then she leaned in and pressed a soft kiss to where his pulse hammered in his throat. “I can’t do this.”

“Do what?” he asked softly.

“Play it cool. Act like seeing your hard-toned body with your hard-assed nature doesn’t affect me.”

“Affect you besides the way you’re babbling?”

She nodded.

“Tell me.”

Her fingers dug into his chiseled pectoral.


“I want to drop to my knees and touch, stroke, lick, and suck every square inch of this body, over and over, until you fully understand what it means to be worshiped. Because I worship you, Ronin Black. You are the most magnificent man I’ve ever seen. The most amazing man I’ve ever met.”

He remained quiet for a long moment. “Baby. Your words honor me on a day I’ve had little praise.

So thank you.”

“Are you done for today?”

“Close. Why?”

Amery’s gaze collided with his. “Because I want you. Just like this. Hot, sweaty, your muscles quivering from exertion and that fierce look on your face.”

Ronin uncurled her hand from the back of his neck and kissed her knuckles. “Anytime you want me you can have me.”




From the author of Bound and Unwoundan all-new novella in the New York Times bestselling Mastered series.

When Amery Hardwick first met martial arts master Ronin Black, she wasn’t ready for the level of his sensual artistry or his need for extreme control. Nor was she prepared for the primal urges it released in her. Amery and Ronin were made for each other.

When they married they were certain their future would be a fulfilling journey of love and passion. But happily ever after is never so simple. Six months later, while in Japan, Ronin is training with his sensei, while Amery is consumed by her own burgeoning career and a culture shock with which she is struggling to adapt.

Now, from the heady pleasures of Tokyo bondage houses to the unyielding family traditions pulsing with every beat of Ronin’s heart, Amery and Ronin find the limits of their relationship tested once again, and shocked to discover what they’re willing to do in order to save it.

Includes a preview of Unraveled, the upcoming novel in the Mastered series.
