Her Master's Courtesan ~ Promo + Review!

Title: Her Master's Courtesan
Author: Lily White
Genre: Dark Erotica
Release Date: February 20, 2014

 * Her Master's Courtesan is intended for MATURE readers 18+ *


I am a Master.

You must know this fact to understand my story.

I capture women.

I break them down.

And I rebuild them.

If they are lucky, they are sold into the professional hands of another Master. If they are less fortunate, they are buried beneath the ground, never to be thought of again.

I lust for the control, I demand absolute submission and my body yearns to warp the minds of those I train.

Power is the only thing I’ll ever need and I am addicted to the feeling of ultimate control.

I am wealthy, good-looking, educated and charming.

And I am - in no way - a good man.

I do not want love.
I do not want kindness.

She thought she could change me by giving me the two things I knew I never wanted.

She was wrong.



"May I speak Master?"
"How long have I been here?"
She locked her eyes with mine and I grimaced. "Another rule you have to learn to obey is that you are not allowed to make eye contact with your owner unless it is specifically ordered. I won't hold it against you this time because there is no way for you to have known that, but you'd be better off looking at your fee while speaking to me."
She complied immediately and I answered her question. "You have been here a little over a day and I must admit that, despite your issues in the bath, I'm please with your progress. Yours was a quick order and I only have six more days to prepare you for your new home. He's not a Master within our group, simply a buyer, but he will be the one to handle you once I'm finished and I expect you to make me a proud man when I hear praise about how well you behave for him."
Her bottom lip trembled more at what I was telling her.
"Why does that make you upset? No man in our group is a monster. We don't slaughter women for fun and we're not savages. You will be cared for. I can't promise you that your Master will remain the same throughout the duration of your life, but I can promise you that as long as you obey, you will remain above ground, so to say. Tell me why you are upset."
"You've just told me my life is over. That I am now a slave and will be traded around between strange men, used for their amusement and tossed aside like nothing more than property. I think I have a right to be upset."
I grabbed her chin and she yelped at the pressure of my fingers. Tilting her eyes to meet mine, I said, "That's where you are wrong, pet. You have no rights any longer. Your life belongs to the man who owns you. You will obey, and you will react with pleasure and thankfulness for the things your owner gives you. Your right to anything and everything has been stripped - your thoughts, your emotions, your choice, and possibly even your life - none of those are yours any longer. And you are not a slave, you are a courtesan. It would be best that you learned the difference."

*** 5 Ridiculously Amazing Awesome DARK DARK PITCH BLACK Mind Blowing Stars ***

I'm totally floored! I'm not necessarily a fan of the subject matter but I AM a fan of this book and I most definitely AM a fan of this author.

It takes considerable skill to take things like abduction, abuse, violence, rape, and unwilling domination (to name a few) and turn them into a book that people are not only interested in reading but that people enjoy reading and that's exactly what Lily White did with Her Master's Courtesan. As stated in the book's warning, (seriously, this book has a warning!), there is no fluff, no love, and no HEA. If there is even a remote chance that you will be looking for any of those things you're looking at the wrong book. I'll be the first to admit that erotica is not my typical genre of choice. Actually, if I'm being honest, I normally avoid it like the plague but even I was glued to these pages.

This book was a bit hard to read at times but I loved every single sick and twisted minute of it. LOVED IT! Virtual high 5 to this exceptional author who made me appreciate my boring life so much more with just one book!

Author Bio:
  Lily White is a dark writer who likes to dabble on the taboo side of eroticism.  Most of the time she can be found wandering around aimlessly while her mind is stuck in some twisted power play between two characters in her head. You may recognize her in public by the confused expression, random mumbling, and occasional giggle while thinking up a scene. Lily’s favorite things in life are reading, thinking about reading, buying books for reading….and writing. Her other secret pleasure is meeting with her plot editor in public to discuss her books and watching the shocked expressions of the people around her that don’t realize she’s talking about a book.  When Lily is not reading, writing, wandering or freaking out innocent bystanders, she’s sleeping.
