She caught my attention the first day I was seated in her class.
Her dark red hair fell in waves down her back and her alabaster skin appeared to sparkle under the lights of the lecture hall
I’d admired her from a distance, never speaking or doing anything to draw attention to myself.
Each day that I spent watching her in this room, I noticed how her eyes would flick up to me. She was wary of me – frightened – and she had reason to be.
Allow me to introduce myself…
My name is Holland Strong and at 21 years old, I’m the youngest Master within a society of wealthy and influential men.
Clair Elliot is my psychology professor in college – that is, at least, until I make her my first courtesan.
She believes she knows everything about how the mind works…
…and I believe I can prove her wrong
This book was one I’ve been waiting for, what feels like, AGES…since reading Her Master’s Courtesan. Patience is a virtue, they say. And my patience TOTALLY paid off. Lily White did another amazing job with this story and bringing us a new master and new courtesan; Holland and Claire.
Holland is a Master in training and full time university student and he has his sights set on one very particular woman…Claire. The challenge? Claire is no ordinary woman. She is Holland’s psychology professor. Her training and profession makes this a bit more difficult than Holland expects.
While we read about Claire’s training as a courtesan and Holland’s training as a master, we’re treated with more of Aiden and Rebecca. The stars of the first book, Her Master’s Courtesan.
Aiden is a to die for master manipulator wrapped up in a SUPER sexy package that just oozes power. He’s also Holland’s trainer. How could Holland not learn a thing or two?
I have to say, HMT was another example of the dark, twisted and brilliant mind of Lily White. There were parts where I cringed, gagged, cried and even laughed. Just wait until you get to the epilogue…see my very first statement above, that says it all!!
Two thumbs up, 5 stars and a happy dance for this read.

Her Master’s Courtesan (Book 1 of the Masters Series)
Available on B&N and Smashwords
Lily White is a dark writer who likes to dabble on the taboo side of eroticism. Most of the time she can be found wandering around aimlessly while her mind is stuck in some twisted power play between two characters in her head. You may recognize her in public by the confused expression, random mumbling, and occasional giggle while thinking up a scene. Lily’s favorite things in life are reading, thinking about reading, buying books for reading….and writing. Her other secret pleasure is meeting with her plot editor in public to discuss her books and watching the shocked expressions of the people around her that don’t realize she’s talking about a book. When Lily is not reading, writing, wandering or freaking out innocent bystanders, she’s sleeping.
(Reapers Motorcycle Club #4)
Author: Joanna Wylde
Publication Date: October 7, 2014
As Reapers Motorcycle Club president, Reese “Picnic” Hayes has given his entire life to the club. After losing his wife, he knew he’d never love another woman. And with two daughters to raise and a club to manage, that was just fine with him. These days, Reese keeps his relationships free and easy—he definitely doesn’t want to waste his time on a glorified cleaning lady like London Armstrong.
Too bad he’s completely obsessed with her.
Besides running her own business, London’s got her junkie cousin’s daughter to look after—a more reckless than average eighteen-year-old. Sure she’s attracted to the Reapers’ president, but she’s not stupid. Reese Hayes is a criminal and a thug. But when her young cousin gets caught up with a ruthless drug cartel, Reese might be the only man who can help her. Now London has to make the hardest decision of her life—how far will she go to save her family?
“Are you gonna sit down or not?” he asked.
“I’m really uncomfortable with”—I gestured toward the woman—“this.” “That’s not exactly my problem,” he said, dropping a hand to rest on her head. “But if it’s an issue, you can take her place.”
“No,” I said quickly.
“Then sit the fuck down and tell me why you’re here.”
His voice tightened, and I realized he was running out of patience. Fair enough—he obviously had other things on his . . . ahem . . . mind. I carefully perched on the edge of the couch, facing the door. This was actually better, I realized. I didn’t have to look at him now. Although I could feel the woman’s movements through the furniture frame and that was very creepy.
“My cousin’s daughter is somewhere at this party,” I said quickly. “Her name is Jessica, and she has very poor judgment. I’d really like to get her out of here and home before she does something completely stupid.”
Like set the building on fire.
“You got shit timing.”
I didn’t respond, because what the hell would I say? So far as I knew, Hallmark didn’t make a “Sorry I Interrupted Your Oral Sex” card.
