About Linzi Basset
“Isn’t it a universal truth that it’s our singular experiences and passion, for whatever thing or things, which molds us all into the individuals we become? Whether it's hidden in the depths of our soul or exposed for all to see?”
Linzi Basset is a South African born animal rights supporter with a poet’s heart, and she is also a bestselling fiction writer of suspense filled romance erotica books; who as the latter, refuses to be bound to any one sub-genre. She prefers instead to stretch herself as a storyteller which has resulted in her researching and writing historical and even paranormal themed works. Her initial offering: Club Alpha Cove, a BDSM club suspense series released back in 2015, reached Amazon’s Bestseller list, and she has been on those lists ever since. Labeling her as prolific is a gross understatement as just a few short years later she has now been published over forty times; a total which fails to take into account the three other published works of her alter ego: Isabel James who co-authors—nor does it include the five additional new works marked for imminent release.
“I write from the inside out. My stories are both inside me and a part of me so it can be either pleasurable to release them or painful to carve them out. I live every moment of every story I write. So, if you're looking for spicy and suspenseful, I'm your girl... woman... writer... you know what I mean!"
Linzi believes that by telling stories in her own voice, she can better share with her readers the essence of her being: her passionate nature; her motivations; and her wildest fantasies. She feels every touch as she writes, every kiss, every harsh word uttered, and this to her is the key to a never-ending love of writing.
Ultimately, all books by Linzi Basset are about passion. To her, passion is the driving force of all emotion; whether it be lust, desire, hate, trust, or love. This is the underlying message contained in her books. Her advice: “Believe in the passions driving your desires; live them; enjoy them; and allow them to bring you happiness.”

Life is full of curveballs. I just wish they’d bypass me on the odd occasion. Throwing me a lifeline just to yank it back doesn’t count. I had my chance at turning around the ever-deepening mire of debt. I was sucked in… and I messed it up. What sane woman would agree to a certifiable proposal by a prospective employer on the day of the interview? Not this one.
The threat of losing the house I inherited from my parents forced me to reconsider my options. Except… would the formidable Ralph White consider my counteroffer?
I’m not well-liked in the corporate world, not that I care. I worked hard to achieve success and became a self-made billionaire, something no one can take away from me. Except it leads to a lonely life, one I counter by carefully selecting a new live-in submissive every year. Grace Forrester ticks all the boxes, but she’s stubborn and spurned my offer.
She’s the one I want, and I always get what I’m after. Besides, I have the power and money to bend her to my will.
Amid a suspenseful backstory of money, power, and corruption, will this sassy woman give in to the pull of the natural submissive yearning to be set free?
PLEASE NOTE: Although the blurb is in first person, the book is written in third person.
Get ready for your mind to be blown as I invite you to visit a favorite BDSM Club of mine, the decadent and devilish CLUB DEVIL’S COVE in Washington DC. True to the nature of the owners and Masters of the club, this story is filled with decadent, delicious Dominants and sassy subs. Jaxon Brodie is the son of Ethan Brodie, one of the Masters in the original series. This is a short novella where his story picks up fifteen years later...
He had the body of Goliath,
The looks of Adonis,
And the eyes of the Devil.
Lois Rickett wasn’t the kind of woman to wait for opportunities to come to her. The gorgeous Dom who caught her as she stumbled on the stairs heading into the exclusive Club Devil’s Cove, begged for her attention. This was one opportunity she was going to embrace with the same passion she did with everything in life. If only for a couple of hours, the Devilish Santa was going to be hers.
She had the body for sin,
The face of Aphrodite.
And the passion for lust.
Jaxon Brodie was the product of betrayal and violence that had paved the way for the man he became. On an extended leave of absence from the military, he had come home to reconnect with his former life. And that’s when he found her; a sassy sub who begged to be taught a lesson.
The question that hung unanswered in his mind as the night wore on was, who was the predator and who was the prey? In the end it really didn’t matter. This sensual tauntress awakened the devil in him. If only for a couple of hours, she was going to be all his.
Unbeknownst to both, their emotional circuitry tilted into overdrive. What now? Would one night be enough?
They aren’t wrong
To some, I am death
They aren’t wrong…
I am the grim reaper.
Razor, aka Maxim Ivanov, the newly promoted Boss of the National Crime Syndicate, Kings Inc, was known in the crime world as a cold-blooded bastard, an assassin with no heart.
Born to the world of violence and crime, Razor embraced his destiny. The path of his future had been set and over time, he became the embodiment of death… in all its forms.
Love didn’t feature in his life… sex, well, that was an entirely different concept. Indulging in kink was his favorite pastime, and when the sassy socialite propositioned him at the Decadent Sins Club, he proved why she should rather have run in the opposite direction.
Maia Wilson had been eyeing the brooding Russian from the first time she entered the club. That he was the friend of her bestie's fiancé, placed him right where she wanted him… within her grasp.
Except he was so much more Dominant than she thought she could handle. Soon, she became the object of her own mystery… and his enjoyment.
When Razor found out who was behind usurping the Mafia’s power in the U.S.; he was forced back to Moscow… to face off against a man he hated with passion… the one who had turned his heart completely black.
Keon is stuck between a rock and . . . a soft place.
He has his daughter back, but Lauren Francis is part of the package. Keon is torn between his love for his daughter and his insatiable desire for her adopted ‘Mommy’. Lauren has a guileless sensuality that is hard to resist. Not only is she encroaching on his space, she’s invading something deep within him. The urge to corrupt her is too strong.
Lauren is weary. She feels like a new born fawn, finding her legs for the first time. She finally has a chance to move ahead in life, away from all the ugliness of the past. She’s been a thirsty traveler for so long and Keon represented a balmy oasis. He is hot, talks dirty and is a complete beast in bed. Lauren is helpless as he plays with her body and heart strings, alike.
The world falls away as fates collide and destiny gets rewritten. Keon and Lauren sizzle as the games heat up in Club Devil’s Cove. Keon exults in Lauren’s passion and submission, while Lauren revels in Keon’s gluttonous need for her body . . . and her soul.
But the demons from the past refuse to lie low. The dangerous game is just heating up. No price is too high. No life is too precious.
Life is a masquerade. Keon, Lauren, Rhone and Samantha must dance to the tune of the devil. The band must play till the masks come off.
But when it’s time to draw the first blood . . . all bets are off.
EDITOR’S NOTE: Keep a warm blanket and a bar of dark chocolate handy while reading this edgy & suspenseful book. You’ll need to hide your hands and keep your mouth occupied. Happy reading!
They say I have a dark side...
They aren’t wrong.
They say I am the devil...
They aren’t wrong.
As the owner of an exclusive BDSM club, Decadent Sins, Master Zeus was respected and loved by many. As The Slayer, the Boss of the National Crime Syndicate, Kings, Inc, Torin Caruso elicited terror in most.
But never the twain had met … and for as long as he had control over the double lives he lived … they never would. To date, he’d kept his true identity from those who vied to end the reign of the most feared Crime Lord.
…Until she arrived at the club. Dakota Harris, a snoopy FBI Agent, who stuck her snippy little nose in where it didn’t belong. He’d be damned if a woman destroyed the secret he’d worked so hard to keep.
Before she realized her mistake and could retreat, he’d strung her up and taught her a lesson she’d never forget. Now, all he had to do was to keep her under his Dominant spell to ensure she kept her pouty mouth shut.
Except, he’d come to find her a conundrum; was she a sly serpent or a sensual submissive? Had the mighty Master of Decadent Sins finally met his match?
Hot! Hot! Hot! This is one of those “this is so hot, I can’t put it down but I also need a cold shower to keep from combusting” type of reads! Torin is fire! Dakota is his perfect match … and their chemistry is … oh, just divine. Mix in some betrayal, some dark secrets, and Dominant Nature will surely dominate you until you’ve read from cover to cover and left you in a puddle on the floor.
Grace always believed men like Ralph White only existed in the movies and never expected to be told to strip the moment she arrived. To her shock, she immediately obeyed.
Ralph White was a formidable man, a billionaire and on the lookout for a new ‘girlfriend’. One that would fit his own particular needs in every way. When Grace walked through his door, he was immediately hooked.
The Interview is the prequal to the exciting journey of this couple in the Grace's Initiation series.

Some say I am a charmer.
They aren’t wrong.
Some say I am a demon.
They aren’t wrong.
As an ex professional football player, and now the new owner of the Seattle Sharks, Matteo Caruso stood at a crossroads. Living a double life as a sport star as well as being the advisor to the Boss of The Mafia Commission, had been easy to juggle. Managing an all stars club however, brought new challenges. He wasn’t fazed since he loved living on the edge. All he needed to do was make a couple of adjustments. Easier said than done!
Jamari Hunter, daughter of the previous owner of the Seattle Sharks, was fast becoming a headache he could do well without, since she refused to accept the loss of her position as the CEO of the team.
Unlucky for her, he recognized her at a masked auction at the Decadent Sin’s club. True to his Dominant desires, Master Hercules taught her a lesson in submission that changed her entire view of the irritating football player who had taken away her birthright.
Now, he had her in the palm of his hand and tightened the ropes with every meeting … except he hadn’t banked on her getting under his skin!
The interference of a Colombian Mafia and a local drug cartel in family business put a strain on their tremulous relationship while Matteo’s ability to keep her safe was viciously put to the test.
“I never beg, squirt. I order and command.”
Bruce Rickett, sex god extraordinaire, had a physique that melted women into puddles. A gentle giant of a man outside the club, he kept the primal, sexual beast lurking inside on a tight leash.
When the redheaded beauty from his past broke into his house, she awakened the Dom in him—and the 'not so little, little' Dom twitched with approval—but he had learned from the past not to trust blindly. Still, an innate desire to cherish, protect, and care for her begged him to put to rest the demons he detected dragging her under.
“I’ll accept your gracious offer ... under the condition that you become my full time, live in submissive.”
Megan Adler, sex on heels, possessed an allure men found hard to resist, but she was a woman broken and riddled with guilt. Past mistakes haunted her at the hands of a ruthless manipulator.
She couldn't ignore that the psychologist had her heart racing still, even eight months since he had rescued her from yearlong captivity as a sex slave. He completely captivated her as the Powerful Master Goliath; the decision to accept his offer was a no-brainer.
Mutually spellbound by the awakening of her submissive nature, she embraced the realization of being in control as he pushed her limits and demolished her boundaries. A burgeoning love flourished under his powerful mastery of her body as he too became subsumed by her sensuality.
As they explored the realm of lust, love, and trust, Bruce and Megan soon realized that theirs was a common enemy who refused to allow them to let go of their past, forcing them to make difficult and life altering choices.
Lines blurred between friend and enemy as Precision Secure surged forward in their relentless pursuit of the leaders of The Sixth Order, unaware of the devastation their discoveries would deliver with unmasking the leaders of the most dangerous crime syndicate in the U.S.
Would Rhone and his team finally outmaneuver, outsmart, and overthrow the Syndicate to live free of their nefarious colluding, or would the team be outmaneuvered, outsmarted and overthrown?
How many more innocent lives would have to pay the price in their rise to power?
A panty melting, teeth grinding, wince-inducing, heart swelling finish to the Club Devil's Cove Series. One minute you want to tear your own clothes off, the next you want to seek revenge on anyone who has ever wronged you, only to melt into a puddle of emotion; Basset takes you on a rollercoaster that you won't want to get off of, even after you've read the last word. A truly magnificent end to the series.
“Keeping my eyes on you, Sir, just as you ordered. I don’t happen to have a rubber spine, so unless I want to slip a disc in my neck—”
Jack Blackmore was an enigma, a man who had seen enough death and destruction to last him a lifetime. As for love? Well, he’d been there, done that. He preferred his role as Master Black at Club Devil’s Cove where he called the shots with no strings attached.
She was known as the Brat of Club Devil’s Cove. Jack couldn’t keep his eyes off her ... er ... chest. And who could blame him? She had the most stunning ‘rack’ he’d ever seen on a sub to date … but she was trouble. Despite her affinity with him, Jack had no intention of unshackling the chains that held the pieces of his heart intact, especially since he didn’t trust her as far as he could throw her, and that was something he had no intention of doing. Not when he would much rather feast on her ... er ... charms.
“I will push your boundaries where and when I want ... just because I can.”
Jordan Clark was caught between the job and her uncontrollable desire for the devil Dom who had turned her ovaries into Olympic gymnasts every time he was near. Who could blame them? He had the physique of a Viking warrior and his … er … ‘tool’ was … um … big! She had to remember she had a job to do. He had never been part of the plan, but her inner submissive craved to be dominated by the formidable Dom. The lines quickly became blurred, and she forgot that he was the job.
While Jack and Jordan danced the tango of lust and passion on a foundation of lies, the Sixth Order struck violently. No one was prepared for the devastation wrought as the world suddenly grew dark and destitute.
One defiant choice led to torture, masks removed, truths revealed, and death came knocking.
Who lived ... and who died?
A suspenseful continuation of Club Devil's Cove.
Mystery, danger, sex, and kink all wrapped up into one hot little … er BIG … package called His Devil’s Chains. Action and malevolent plans will keep you on the edge of your seat as emotions run high and libidos run higher. Jordan and Jack will pull you in and hold you captive. A true guilty pleasure if I’ve ever read one.
“Ah yes, that I am. Thanks for reminding me, Paige.”
Paige Scott saw it coming. She had been living a double life and had hoodwinked the delicious Dr. Brodie a time or two . . . or three in the past. It wasn’t her fault. He was irresistible to her. As her boss, he captured her heart. As her Dom, he owned her body. But this game of cat and mouse is about to get wilder and Paige has nowhere to hide.
Ethan is a suave beast on the scent of his prey. Prude Paige whets his appetite, while the sensuous siren at the club satiates his hunger. There is one problem though. He can’t get enough. Paige brings out the devil in him. Even as he pushes her limits and demolishes her boundaries, he loses himself more and more in her splendor. Her beauty subsumes him.
As Ethan and Paige explore the thin line between love and lust, a nefarious plot is underfoot. The Sixth Order is colluding in cross-border crimes and hundreds of innocent lives are at risk. Ethan and Paige find themselves confronting a common enemy and a chance to finally put the past behind them.
Will Ethan, Rhone and their team be successful in uncovering the festering roots of corruption? Or will it be too little, too late?
Editor’s note: Gird you loins and strap on your seat belts. This is going to be a fast, thrilling and sizzling ride. Remember to breathe, occasionally.
“Then prepare yourself for hell, my pet, because you will come to me … and yes … I’ll be the devil you prayed never to meet.”
She should’ve seen it coming, but the last thing she expected was the powerful Dom’s demand that she become his submissive … willingly. Her mind screamed no, but her body … well, that was a completely different story. He was the kind of man every woman dreamed about: debonair as they came with an irresistible charm she couldn’t say no to. Disregarding the threat his words promised, she said yes…
Lance Talbot had seen and experienced despair in his years as a combat soldier in Afghanistan. It had turned him into a hardened man with every reason to hate the one woman he never seemed able to forget. Until he looked into her eyes and saw her suffering that awakened the caring Dom in him. He set out to save her … from herself … before she destroyed the beauty of her soul in an effort to find absolution.
She became the prey and he the hunter. He’d had a taste of the young Lexi Calvert eight years earlier; now he ached for the mature woman in her, and the enticingly sassy woman knew just how to awaken the devil in him.
But would the past ever truly be forgotten? Only time would tell.
Entangled amidst their budding love, the conspiracy began to unravel as a plot to unmask the Sixth Order exploded in their faces … literally.
The Precision Secure team was left naked and vulnerable as death handed them a cruel hand.
Would they ever recover … or was this the beginning of the end?
Basset knows how to draw a reader in, catch their attention, and not release it until they are needy for the next chapter, and a helping hand ... or a cold shower. The emotions and angst reign supreme between Lance and Lexi, but there is an amazing balance between romance, kink, and suspense, that— like a scene between Dom and sub—has the reader holding their breath, only to be let up for air at the perfect moment.
