Cuff Master is Available Now!

Hello everyone,
I'm so very excited. Can you tell? Why, you might ask? Because Cuff Master is now available from Ellora's Cave Taboo.

Here's a quick link to Cuff Master on Ellora's Cave's New Release page:

I also have a blurb and an excerpt to share to whet your appetite! Be advised that Cuff Master is a Taboo with paranormal/supernatural elements and features a couple engaging in a D/s lifestyle. While there's bondage, light discipline, there is never abuse or physical harm to another person in this story or any story that I write featuring BDSM.

It is my hope that you'll give Detective Ethan Maddox and his shy psychic, Morgan Everhart, a chance and love them as much as I do.

Detective Ethan Maddox and psychic Morgan Everhart are on the cusp of a relationship, if she can forgive him for doubting her abilities when they first met. A Master with a fetish for handcuffs, he recognizes Morgan is a submissive who needs a patient man to guide her safely into the D/s lifestyle. He is determined to claim her.
Inviting her for a moonlit walk, Ethan kisses Morgan and her seduction begins, until a teenaged ghost interrupts. Ethan is skeptical of the supernatural, but if he doesn’t open his mind he may never collar the woman he loves.
As they work together to solve a cold case, Ethan introduces Morgan to the very dark, seductive world of sex, submission, bondage and dungeons. All the while, danger is growing. If Ethan doesn’t find a young girl’s killer soon, all could be lost.
Reader Advisory: Morgan’s sexual awakening includes watching a scorching-hot brief scene of male/male lust, with Ethan by her side.

An excerpt:

If you'd like to read the excerpt, please follow the link. For reasons my techno-klutz personality can't figure out just yet, the blurb kept posting awkwardly. It's a PG-13 excerpt, just an FYI, and I hope you'll like it. In coming days, Cuff Master will be availabe via Amazon, B&N, ARe and various other vendors. I'll post links as they come to me.

In honor of Cuff Master's release, I'm holding a contest which will last until August 31! Leave a comment on this blog that features your favorite ghost story. Everyone has the chance to win a digital copy of a book on my backlist, which you can find if you check out my author page on Ellora's Cave's website. Thanks for playing and don't forget to leave an email address so that I can contact you if your name is drawn for the contest.

Thank you everyone. Celebrating for the rest of the day!


  1. Congrats on the release of Cuff Master, Frances! :)

    A ghost story, huh? Well, you've unleashed the floodgates ... I love ghost stories! I even have a few of my own. Probably my favorite is something that happened to me and one of my cousins when I was a preteen.

    He and I were alone in our grandparents' house as everyone else was across the street at the park. We went down in the basement to look for something. When we came back up the stairs we heard someone walk down the hall and stop at the door, then we couldn't get the door open.

    They were standing on the other side holding it shut. They would jiggle the doorknob when my cousin jiggled it and even laughed. I couldn't get it open either. My cousin got really mad because he thought it was one of his little brothers being a brat!

    Only after a while, we heard one last laugh, and the door swung wide open, into the long hall.

    There was no one there. They wouldn't have had time to escape the hall, but we checked the whole house anyway (and it's only a one story ranch-style house). No one. Then when the rest of our family returned from the park we asked if any of them had returned to the house at any point. No one had.

    We were so creeped out! To this day we still think it was a mischievous ghost! :) Though no one else believes us. LOL

  2. This is excellent! Thank you, Ranae for sharing your story. I'd have been scared!
