Over the last few weeks I had the pleasure of editing Bianca Sommerland’s latest book in her Dartmouth Cobras series, Iron Cross. The Dartmouth Cobras are a fictional NHL team located in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, and the books detail the players’ lives on and off the ice.
I started working with Bianca about eighteen months ago after I read her first book in the series, Game Misconduct. (It’s free on Amazon, go get it.) I offered to re-edit her books and a great professional relationship was born.
Word of warning, the Cobras books are BDSM and ménage and are for readers 18+. Iron Cross is the 6th book in the series, and all of the books feature interwoven plots and characters, so if you’re interested, you’d better start at the beginning!
Here’s the the blurb from Amazon:
Too many penalties may leave the goal vulnerable without the IRON CROSS.
After overcoming a potentially career-ending concussion, Tyler Vanek, the Dartmouth Cobras first-line forward, couldn't be happier with his life. Until his boyhood hero-worship for Raif Zovko, a newly acquired player, develops into more. His mistress, “Chicklet,” encourages him to explore his feelings, and with her enjoyment of toying with the powerful Dom, Tyler figures it might be fun.
Laura Tallent, a dedicated officer with the Halifax PD, and Chicklet's first sub, is tired of Tyler's fun disrupting the structure of her world. Devotion to her mistress kept her silent for two years, but a horrible case and more proof that Tyler is the worst sub in existence has her wondering how much better life would be if he were someone else's problem. Someone like Raif.
Raif won't deny the lust he feels for Tyler, but he refuses to play games with a young man who's questioning his sexuality—he won't be an experimental phase for an unruly submissive. But when Laura draws him into a plan to remove Tyler from her poly relationship with Chicklet, his protective instincts take over. He partners with Chicklet to protect Tyler and dig deeper into the reasons behind Laura's scheming. Chicklet clearly loves her boy; she won't let him go. And before long, Raif realizes neither can he.
Blindsided by the discord in her household, Chicklet struggles to fulfill her subs' needs as their careers throw challenges at them all. Control is slipping from her hands, but with Raif by her side, she prays her relationships can be saved. Salvaging the future means rebuilding with a new foundation. But the only way to make the base solid is for them all to work together. And with all the secrecy and lies, she has no idea where to start.
So there you have it. Iron Cross has been out only a few days and has over 20 five-star reviews on Amazon, so if you give it a try and like it, be sure to add your positive review! Positive reviews sell books, and books that sell keep Bianca in business, and have a positive effect on my ability to pay my rent and travel the world, both things I enjoy a lot.
