Georgia thought after her husband died that she would never find love again. When her son Damien joined a BDSM community she was introduced to the head Master. From the moment she laid eyes on Master Xanthos she was intrigued by this man. Now, she finds herself being trained to be Master Xanthos' submissive. The awkwardness of being in the same BDSM community as her son is something that can't be easily overlooked. The growing love she feels for Master Xanthos scares her. And now, Xanthos wishes for her to help Master Rex with his female submissives. The undeniable attraction Georgia feels for Rex is something she can't allow to happen. Rex is the same age as her son Damien.
Master Damien is happy that his mother has found love with Master Xanthos, yet he is uneasy about her being Master Xanthos' submissive. He is willing to deal with his uneasiness so that Georgia may find some happiness. However, when he notices that she acts very differently around Master Rex than she does around the other Masters in the community he will not accept his mother being with the most brutal of pain Masters in the community.
Master Lash is terrified that his brother Zen will take away the two most important people in his life, his submissive Julie and his lover Damien. Zen has taken Lash's submissive and lover from him before what will stop him from doing it again. Lash loves his big brother, he was all Lash had when he was younger. He can't figure out what he did to his brother to make him hate Lash so much. But Lash will be damned if he lets Zen take Damien and Julie from him.
An Interview with Justus Roux
By Holly Hewson for The Romance Studio
HH: Justus, thank you for talking with us at TRS. Your featured book is I Got You and is part of your superb Masters series. First, how did the Masters series get its start?
JR: My Master Series got its start out of my curiosity about the BDSM lifestyle. I researched this lifestyle extensively, then the storyline for My Master popped into my head.
HH: How does I Got You fit into the series?
JR: I Got You focuses on Master Lash, who is the youngest Master in the community, his budding romance with Master Damien, and his love for his submissive Julie. This story also deals with dealing with age difference in relationships. Master Lash is twelve years younger than Master Damien and he is also ten years younger than his submissive Julie.
The second storyline deals with Master Damien's mother Georgia entering the community as Master Xanthos' submissive, and how they both deal with the awkwardness of this.
HH: What do you like about Georgia and why will readers relate to her?
JR: Georgia is a strong woman who has decided to love again after losing the love of her life a few years ago. She is loving and very generous. I think many women will be able to relate to her. She is down to earth. The journey she is taking with Master Xanthos frightens her but she is willing to explore this side of herself because of her love for him.
HH: What do you like best about Master Xanthos and why will readers love him?
JR: Master Xanthos is a strong dominant and up to this point the reader have just known him as the founder and head Master of this BDSM community. The reader will get to see his more vulnerable side as he allows himself to truly and completely love Georgia.
I like Master Xanthos' strength and his generous nature.
HH: What makes this book unique compared to what readers have seen to this point?
JR: This book really explores the issues of age difference in a relationship. Master Lash is fairly new to this lifestyle and the readers get to see him learn to become a great Master.
HH: What can you tell us about the future of this series?
JR: The next book in the series is Ferocity which will be released in June. This book picks up where I Got You leaves off. Then in September Yes…My Master will released. In this book, of course it picks up where Ferocity will leave off, but the storyline will allow the reader to get to know every Master in this community as Master Xanthos has a new submissive name Hope pick which Master she wants to serve. She will hear from one submissive of each Master as they describe a day with their Master. Each chapter of this book is about a different Master. I think the readers who have been reading this series will enjoy this. And it will give new readers a nice overview of Master Xanthos' community.
HH: What else do you have in store for lucky readers?
JR: I'm busy developing a new BDSM series. I'm hoping the first book will be released at the end of the year.
I'm currently writing a fantasy erotic romance novel, that I may be releasing under a new pen name.
HH: How much of your life is spent on your writing career?
JR: I have been writing erotic romance for ten years now. On a day for day basis, I write for about six hours a day on the weekdays and just a couple hours on the weekends. Unless my muses are really inspired then I could write longer than that. I spend at least an hour a day on promoting, more when a new book comes out. It's a full time job :) but I love it.
HH: What would we find in your to be read pile right now?
JR: Right now I have just started the Master of the Shadowlands series by Cherise Sinclair.
HH: What plans do you have for the summer?
JR: I would like to go to Chicago this summer to check out the Museums and do some shopping with my daughter. I would also like to take a cruise to some tropical island this summer, that would be awesome.
Thank you for interviewing me. I always love talking about my books :)
