His Mistress by Monica Burns Blog Tour, Review & Giveaway


His Mistress by Monica Burns












As a solicitor seeking justice for victims of violence, Tobias Lynsted must maintain control at all times while working in the seedy underworld of London’s East End. The darkness of his world creates a need for the intimacy and release he can only find in the forbidden pleasure of submission. The kind of pleasure where a powerful man has the freedom to let go of his control for a few sweet moments of oblivion. But when a blackmail scheme forces him to marry, the last thing he expects in a wife is a woman who will satisfy the darker side of his nature.


Lady Jane Grisham has no desire to marry, but choosing marriage over a life of destitution is an easy choice to make. Although Jane knows love is for the foolish, Tobias awakens her most wicked and darkest of desires. In the sinful world of domination and submission, Jane uses her blossoming skills to make Tobias surrender not only his body but his secrets. But she quickly discovers that the true test of her strength is trusting Tobias with her heart.

May 15, 2014





Free for the moment to watch her
without the possibility of penalty, Tobias studied her as one might a work of
art. His gaze swept downward to the curve of her waist and where her skirt
billowed outward. Her dark hair brushed against her back like brown silk. The
lust she’d drawn from his body only a moment ago took hold of him once more as
he contemplated the temptation hidden beneath her wide skirts. In his mind’s
eye, he knew exactly how he would pleasure her.



He’d make her cry out just like
he had, and then he’d do it again until they were both satiated. As he saw her
about to turn toward her, he quickly dropped his head knowing by looking at her
he was defying her orders. He wanted to please her, not make her unhappy.


“My Lady,” he rasped. “I am grateful
for your attention to my needs.”


“It gave me a great deal of
pleasure to take care of you, Tobias.” she said softly as she returned to his
side. “And despite that small tear, you even managed to avoid breaking your
restraints. It demonstrates the extent of your self-control.”


There was an undefinable emotion
in her voice that made him think she regretted not allowing him to bed her.
Once more images of him filling her with his cock flooded his head. Almost
immediately, he began to hardened. It would be only a minute or two before he’d
be able to satisfy her as she’d satisfied him.


“Allow me to satisfy you as well,
my Lady,” he said quiet confidence.


She didn't respond to his
request. Instead she turned away. Although his gaze remained downcast, he
watched her bend down to pick up her jacket. Frustration blistered its way
through him as he watched the burgundy waistcoat cover her beautiful breasts.
One hand on her waist and the other at her throat, Tobias knew she was
contemplating his offer. Even though he couldn't see her face, he was certain
she was frowning as she considered his words. The deep breath she drew in made
his heart sink.


 “I don’t think that’s possible.” Doubt riddled
her words as she turned to face him. Long, beautiful fingers made short work of
buttoning her jacket, and he sensed her uncertainty. It merely strengthened his
desire to convince her to let him pleasure her.


“It is possible, my Lady.” Tobias’s body tightened with desire, his
cock already halfway to becoming fully erect again. “Let me worship your body
with my hands and mouth. Let me satisfy you as no other man has done before.”


“A bold promise.” There was a
hint of breathlessness in her voice, but laughter as well. Tobias chafed at her
amusement.


“You've asked me not to lie to
you, my Lady. I am not lying when I say that I know how to pleasure you.” His
harsh response caused silence to stretch between them for a long moment.


“I want more than the promise of
pleasure, Tobias,” she said in a voice that had lost all trace of amusement. “I
want complete submission.”

An icy finger scraped down
Tobias’s spine, and the ground shifted beneath his feet as he considered her
words. In the past, he’d heard similar words from the Ladies he’d sought his
release with. But Mystère’s words
held a far deeper meaning than any Lady he’d ever submitted to before. Fear
twisted and knotted his gut until he no longer felt the pain in his arms.



 She was asking for a part of him he’d never
shared with anyone, and he had no intention of doing so now. When he didn't
answer, Mystère closed the distance
between them. Her touch gentle, she undid his lace straps then gently pulled
his arms downward until his bound hands hung loosely in front of him. The
fingers that had gripped him moments ago made short work of the silk tie
wrapped around his wrists.


“You may remove the restraints
from your legs and dress, Tobias,” she said quietly as she turned away.


It was a signal their play had
ended for the evening.



This was a very well written book, like others of Monica Burns' books I have read.
More romance than anything, truly.  Although it does delve into Tobias darker secrets-as well as Jane's. 
Jane is new to commanding a man in the bedroom, but has been commanded by men all her life.  She has found an outlet that allows her to show her strength.
Since this is a historical romance book, the author does try to stay with the times in her wording.  The sex scenes with Jane and Tobias are well written without the smut words of today's BDSM books.  But it works, and works well for this book.
I did enjoy reading this, its not often I get this type of book to read and review.  I was surprised that such a strong & Confident man was a submissive for Jane!
This book was hot, without a doubt.
