About Hard to Serve
To protect and serve is all Detective Kyler Vance ever wanted to do, so when Internal Affairs investigates him as part of the new police commissioner’s bid to oust corruption, everything is on the line. Which makes meeting a smart, gorgeous submissive at an exclusive play club the perfect distraction…
The director of the city’s hottest art gallery, Mia Breslin’s career is golden. Now if only she could find a man to dominate her nights and set her body—and her heart—on fire. When a scorching scene with a hard-bodied, brooding Dom at Blasphemy promises just that, Mia is lured to serve Kyler again and again.
As their relationship burns hotter, Kyler runs into Mia at work and learns that he’s been dominating the daughter of the hard-ass boss who has it in for him. Now Kyler must choose between life-long duty and forbidden desire before Mia finds another who’s not so hard to serve.

An Excerpt from Hard to Serve
Sitting on the little, private loveseat at the back of the big bar area, nervous anticipation jangled through Mia. “So…about you being an asshole…”
Chuckling, Kyler took her hand and winked. “Yes, about that. I’m sorry, because I’d like to see you again.”
The room spun around her, despite the fact that she was sitting perfectly still. But then she shook her head. “I can’t afford it.” She’d received the offer of full membership, but between the cost and how she and Master Kyler had left things, she hadn’t even given it a second thought.
“I’m not talking about Blasphemy, Mia. Well, not just Blasphemy. I’m talking about me and you.” He traced his finger over her thigh close to her knee.
She shivered, as much from the touch as from the words. “Me and you,” she repeated.
“Sounds even better when you say it,” he said, leaning in and nuzzling her face. He kissed her temple, her cheek, the corner of her mouth. “I just need you to know, I don’t do this, Mia. Any of this. Because I’ve never before met anyone who made me want to do it. And I’m not even sure I’ll be any good at it. But this last week has been fucking miserable, and I—”
She’d heard enough. Enough to know what she wanted. She kissed him. Planted her hands in his hair and kissed him so damn hard.
The growl he unleashed sounded like pure victory, especially when he quickly took over, plundering her mouth with his tongue, hauling her onto his lap so that she straddled him. He tugged her hair, rubbed hard hands over her body, pressed his erection up against her wet panties.
“Oh, God,” she rasped around the edge of the kiss.
“Fucking missed you,” he said, his hands finally touching her breasts, kneading and squeezing through the thin cotton of the little bronze-colored dress. “Fucking need you.”
“I need you, too,” she rasped, grinding against his erection. Her blood was molten, and a sheen of sweat broke out over her body. She was already so close.
“Don’t come,” he ordered. His big palm slipped under the flowy pleats of her dress and gripped her ass. Hard. “You do not have permission to come.”
She whimpered, because the command shoved her in that direction, just like he must’ve known it would. The sexy bastard. “Please, Sir. Please.”
He nailed her with a stare, his eyes dark blue fire. “You want to come, Mia?”
A fast nod. “Yes, Sir.”
“You want to come, you do it on my cock.”
For a second, Mia couldn’t breathe, because she wasn’t sure she’d ever been so turned on in her whole life. “Here? Now?”
