Determined to Obey is Available for Pre-order! Release 11 Nov 2014

Hello Smutketeers!

As I blogged earlier this week, I have decided to publish my Dark Duet bonus novella Determined to Obey as a standalone.

I've been hauling tits to make it happen and I've been able to get it together before I leave for Love N' Vegas. So without further ado...

RELEASE: 11 Nov 2014
Ebook: $2.99
Paperback: $6.99 
LIVE!!! Pre-order your copy


Determined to Obey is being published independently at the request of thousands of fans who already own Captive in the Dark, Seduced in the Dark, and Epilogue: The Dark Duet--known together as the DARK DUET SERIES

Determined to Obey was written as part of the bonus material for DARK DUET: PLATINUM EDITION (Featuring Determined to Obey) and not meant to be read as a stand alone. However, it is possible to enjoy it as such if one prefers


The character “Kid” appears in both Captive in the Dark and Seduced in the Dark

This novella takes place in Mexico and follows Kid after he and his girlfriend, Nancy, are taken hostage by a group of men led by Caleb. Unbeknownst to Kid or Nancy, they are taken to the mansion of Felipe Villanueva, an eccentric crime boss with a taste for the taboo.

Wrongfully accused by Nancy of the attempted rape and subsequent assault of Caleb’s escaped captive, “Kitten”, Kid is tortured by his captors.

We join Kid in the dungeon, where he is about to meet Felipe and his companion Celia for the first time...

DARK DUET: Platinum Edition Countdown - 21 October

Today is October 21st

While we're waiting, here's a review of the Seduced in the Dark from one of my favorite bloggers ever! The incomparable "Jenny" from Totally Booked.

What is the price of redemption?

Rescued from sexual slavery by a mysterious Pakistani officer, Caleb carries the weight of a debt that must be paid in blood.

The road has been long and fraught with uncertainty, but for Caleb and Livvie, it’s all coming to an end.

Can he surrender the woman he loves for the sake of vengeance?

Or will he make the ultimate sacrifice?

Jenny's Review:
This was definitely one of the most gut-wrenchingly difficult, raw, brutal, thought provoking and emotional reads I have ever sat through. There were times I thought I couldn't go on and my resolve was sorely tested

My chest ached, my stomach was in knots and more than once I felt physically sick with the anticipation of what was about to happen.

Reading this book I felt that CJ must be one of the most talented writers I've ever read. How she crafted this story and brought it all together left me in total awe. She is a storyteller who certainly doesn't shy away from what she feels needs to be told, even if, at times, this makes the reader uncomfortable and takes them to a place they thought they could never go.

The reader is taken from the time Livvie is captured and from there she recounts how her predicament evolved and how Caleb and the others played a part in her story. It was nothing short of brilliant how this story was pieced together.

Caleb is still the broken "monster" we met in Captive in the Dark. He is hell-bent on his revenge and willing to sacrifice Livvie (Kitten) into slavery just to ensure his task is carried out.

I have to admit to having strong feelings for Caleb when reading Captive in the Dark (The Dark Duet #1). I hated him because I loved him, when really I should have despised him. Nothing changes in this book. I was still questioning my sanity over my feelings for this man. How could I, after what he had done and was still prepared to do, feel so much love and compassion for him? What was it about this man that drew me to him? Oh trust me, there were times when I wanted to knife him through the heart. This man will test you, and he will test you BIG time, but his tender times with Livvie will hit you deep in your heart and it is at these times when you feel, when you hope, that there is goodness and perhaps love somewhere in this man.

Livvie has grown in this book. She has feelings for Caleb that have her questioning if she is of sound mind. How could she feel the way she does for Caleb after what he has done to her? After what he was still intending to do to her? He never sugar coated her fate. You will be clenching your heart for Livvie. You can't put yourself in her shoes because you couldn't withstand the heartbreak of being there.

I will tell you now that I cried reading this book more than I have ever cried reading a book before. Whilst this story is at times shocking, it was also so emotional throughout, and catching glimpses of Caleb's past will have you clutching your chest. I defy anyone to read the last chapter of this book without crying.

After finishing this book I sobbed for an hour afterwards and just stared into space. I had to absorb everything I had read and marvel at what an amazing and emotional journey this author had just taken me on.

As I've said, this is by no means an easy read, let's face it, a book about human trafficking and sex slavery was never written with the intention of being an easy read.

However, when you pick this book up (be sure to read Captive in the Dark first!) you will experience, what I can promise you will be an emotional rollercoaster the likes of which you will be hard pressed to beat.

This book will make you angry. It will make you sick. It will make you sad. It will test your resolve. It will make you question your thoughts and your feelings, but I promise you, you will not forget this book. It will stay with you long after the last page, because not only will this book touch your heart, it will touch your soul.

I was a Beta read for this book in July 2012

DARK DUET: Platinum Edition Countdown - 20 October

Today is October 20th

While we're waiting, here's one of my favorite reviews of the first book in the Dark Duet series via "Miss" on Amazon. MY FIRST REVIEW!!!

Caleb is a man with a singular interest in revenge. Kidnapped as a young boy and sold into slavery by a power-hungry mobster, he has thought of nothing but vengeance. For twelve years he has immersed himself in the world of pleasure slaves searching for the one man he holds ultimately responsible. If Caleb is to get close enough to strike, he must become the very thing he abhors.

Eighteen-year-old Olivia Ruiz has just woken up in a strange place. Blindfolded and bound, there is only a calm male voice to welcome her. His name is Caleb and he demands to be called Master.

Miss' Review:
"I purchased this ebook this morning and read it in a matter of hours. I couldn't put it down it was that good! The character's were well thought out, and the story flowed at a perfect pace. I cannot wait for the sequel so I can learn what's in store for Caleb and Livvie. I prefer not to think about the fact that such a disturbing story could pull my heartstrings but it is hard not to feel for both the tormentor and the tormented. Kudos to the author for a story well told!" -- Amazon, 31 August 2011

Thank you, "Miss", for taking a chance on a book no one had reviewed and being the first to vouch for my work on Amazon.

Can I buy Determined to Obey on it's own?

Dearest Readers,
I believe I may have made a marketing blunder. You see, I wrote this 120 page novella named Determined to Obey. I wrote it as BONUS material for my upcoming boxed set release:

The boxed set is meant to entice new readers. However, the very last thing an author wants is to alienate her loyal fans. For this reason, I included new covers for each of the books in the series, a new novella (DtO), and nearly 200 other pages of Dark Duet fan-fiction, interviews, and reviews. I also set the price below the $9.99 it will list for on 28 Oct 2014.

However, since the announcement of the Platinum Edition I've been bombarded with ONE question: "Can I buy Determined to Obey on it's own?"

Well, I wrote it to fit as a 'behind-the-scenes' accompaniment to Captive in the Dark and Seduced in the Dark. To be honest, I'm not sure anyone jumping in to the series for the first time will understand the novella. But again! What about my faithful?

What to do? 

I've decided to give you what you want 
(it's your puppy eyes, I can't take 'em).

Since I don't have a cover or blurb for Determined to Obey and it hasn't been formatted for stand-alone release, and so as not to compete with DARK DUET: Platinum Edition -- I'll set the release date for Determined to Obey at 11 November 2014. The price will probably be $2.99 (ebook only). I will have to wait until I have a formatted file before I can tell you how much a print book will be.

For those of you who have pre-ordered the Platinum Edition--thank you! It will be automatically delivered to your device on 28 October 2014. If any of you wish to cancel, you may do so by contacting your retailer.

NOW, let's celebrate the good news by having a giveaway.
