Editorial Reviews

From the Author

As a romance author, I strive hard to make every read better than the last. Writing sexy romance has personal meaning for me due to my surviving sexual assault. Whether I write a dark or light themed book, the ultimate goal is to provide readers with a read that is entertaining, but most of all, illustrates that love is the light that can overcome darkness.

More About the Author

Monica Burns is a bestselling author and winner of the 2015 Gold Medal International Book Award for FOREVER MINE a book, which has more than a 100+ 4&5 star reviews. At the age of nine, Monica displayed an aptitude for psychic abilities. It was then she wrote her first romance and signed it by Monica Burns. She's bought four houses based on her dreams and been within $500 of all sale/purchases pricing. No she hasn't been able to predict lottery numbers, although she sure wishes she could. However, she *can* predict that if you click the Follow button above, you'll receive a notice every time her newest release hits the eBook shelves.

A woman with eclectic tastes, Monica is a terrific cook. Her chocolate chips at Christmas are in high demand, her cream puffs are mouth-watering, and her chili tends to make sweat break out on foreheads. Her bucket list includes visiting Chiddingstone, England; Rome, Italy; and Sicily to see the house where her great-grandmother was born. She's proud of her Italian/German ancestry. Another bucket list item is her desire to drive a black Lamborghini on the flats of the west at 120 mph or faster. She also wants to ride more roller coasters. When she's 83, she plans on jumping out of an airplane with a parachute of course. She figures at that age she'll have lived a good life and going out with a splat is the same as going out with a bang.

Unlike other people who collect firearms, Monica has six swords hanging on her walls at home. Swords, when used properly, require great skill to maim or kill as opposed to point and pull a trigger. However, she only uses swords in her books, although home invaders should be aware she knows how to use her swords. An avid Star Wars and Star Trek fan, her memorabilia includes a Star Wars Lego Star Destroyer, which holds a place of honor in the family room thanks to her youngest's building skills.

From the time she was five, Monica has devoured books. Her favorite memories are sitting under the large oak tree at her maternal grandmother's house reading one of the numerous books off her grandmother's bookshelves while the music of opera greats drifted out of the windows. Her favorite romance of all-time is Jane Eyre. Currently, her favorite celebrities are Tom Hiddleston (Team Loki), Benedict Cumberbatch (BEST Sherlock Holmes ever), James Spader (Raymond Reddington is the best role of his career), Bruce Willis, and Vin Diesel. She thinks bald guys are self-assured and damn sexy.

Monica writes terrific books. The proof is in the pudding as she's won numerous awards. As mentioned previously, she won the 2015 GOLD MEDAL for FOREVER MINE in the International Book Awards. Her book PLEASURE ME won the 2011 RTBookReviews Reviewers Choice Award, the All About's Desert Island Keeper, and the 2012 Gayle Wilson Heart of Excellence Award. She is also the 2011 PRISM winner in the Best of the Best category for Assassin's Heart from her paranormal Order of the Sicari series.

Monica believes in giving readers the opportunity to test drive her books. You can do this by downloading for FREE her sampler book DECADENT BONBONS.This FREE eBook includes the first one to four chapters of all of Monica's books. A workaholic wife and mother, Monica is a survivor of sexual assault who believes love can conquer all. She's of the opinion that every hero and heroine deserves a HEA (Happily Ever After), especially if she's writing the story. To ensure you get that HEA from her, sign up for her newsletter

~Originally published on Buried Under Romance blog~

This is the first historical erotica I've read with medium BDSM elements, and it was rather nicely done. Tobias Lynsted had a dark past, and his work is more like that of a Bow Street Runner than a mere solicitor for the Earl of Culverstone. When the Earl blackmails him into mailing his daughter, Jane, Tobias has no choice but to capitulate else his activities at La Maison des Plaisirs Noir (House of Dark Pleasures) an exclusive club catering to men's wildest desires (usually along the lines of submission-domination, erotic play, et cetera). Neither he nor Jane wants this marriage, yet Tobias's concern that Jane will not understand his dark cravings is about to be proven unnecessary...

Lady Jane Grisham may be an earl's daughter, but she's no innocent in mind or body. Her curiosity has led her to befriend Angelique, the madam of La Maison des Plaisirs Noir, and with the skills she's learned there, she has begun leading Tobias on a merry chase to his submission, as the masked Lady Mystere. Ultimately, will he succumb to her commands? In their battle of wills, will they find something everlasting, and perhaps have a true marriage?

Monica Burns has started her Self-Made Man series with a very interesting hero who is afraid to submit in mind and body. Tobias fears the loss of control accompanying his submission, which could mean death in his line of work. Jane, on the other hand, demands Tobias' submission because it gives her a sense of power, of her own femininity, and also as a way to forget her past surrender to an undeserving man.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By M. E. Almaguer on May 14, 2014
Format: Kindle Edition
I am fascinated by the juxtaposition of the buttoned-up facade of the Victorian era—this novel is set in 1892—against the uninhibited world of sexual pleasures. “Those uptight and proper Victorians” as my good friend likes to say. They just didn’t discuss such things in Polite Society. One’s foibles, weaknesses, and desires were completely private and, if discovered, meant almost certain ruin, scandal, and possibly even arrest.
Tobias Lynsted is a commoner and a successful solicitor in London’s dangerous East End, with a secret sexual penchant he keeps carefully hidden. So when he’s blackmailed into marriage by the Earl of Culverstone who threatens to reveal his liaisons within the walls of the exclusive La Maison de Plaisir Noirs (The House of Dark Pleasures), Tobias feels he has no choice but to marry Culverstone’s thirty-one year-old spinster daughter, Jane.
But above all else, Tobias is an honorable man who cherishes and protects women. Luckily, Tobias was saved long ago as a little boy by a caring mentor who raised him (and four other boys) as his own sons, teaching him right from wrong and helping him learn a profession. They are his family; I’m curious if there will be future stories featuring Tobias’ brothers?
Lady Jane Grisham has long suffered being ignored by her father and, when he becomes involved with an unscrupulous woman, Lady Irene Hounslow, Culverstone feels Jane is an impediment to his upcoming marriage. Once again, the popular theme of the vulnerability of women is evident here. Marrying her off to Tobias would solve his problem. She has also been ruined, many years ago, by a man who seduced and then abandoned her.

Format: Paperback
La Maison des Plaisirs Sombres is the premier BDSM club in London, but to enter you must be granted membership by Angélique Bissette. Leather and silk bindings, floggers, whips, feather dusters and ropes are all welcome here. Women and men enter this world to be sexual free and they use domination or submission to achieve it. La Maison des Plaisirs Sombres is their sexual sanctuary, but someone is threatening to rip the veil away and exposes them all.

Lady Jane Grisham became the unloved and unwanted daughter of the Earl of Culverstone, after she gave her power away to a cruel man. To survive under her father’s thumb, Jane has bisected herself into two halves. Her public half is the proper English Lady who wears dull grey dresses, so she will blend into the background of her father’s world. Her private half is the enchanting and mysterious Lady Mystère! At the La Maison des Plaisirs Sombres, Jane welcomes her freedom as Lady Mystère and can dominate any man she choose.

Tobias Lynsted is a London solicitor who champions the poor of the East End. His father’s violence defined him at a young age and he now protects the weaker and helpless. After his parents mysterious deaths, he is saved by John Fordyce and learns about unconditional love. Tobias is raised and educated with four other boys and they all became his FAMILY! To survive is dark past, Tobias needs to set his demons free and he does as a male submissive at La Maison de Plaisirs Sombres. No woman has ever earned his complete surrender, but Lady Mystère does intrigue him.

Tobias is the solicitor for the Earl of Culverstone and the earl’s has a problem with his upcoming marriage to Lady Irene Hounslows. Lady Jane and his fiancée hate one another.
