From the moment Alexandr Novikov met the young auburn haired woman bartending at her uncle’s pub in Ireland, he’d been fascinated by her delicate beauty and fiery spirit. Unfortunately, he is in no position to offer her the kind of safe, normal life she deserves so he attempts to put her from his mind for her own good. Something easier said then done when a deal is struck between the Novikov Bratva and the Irish Cleary Gang, an arrangement that includes Alex and his men being on twenty-four hour bodyguard duty with the object of his forbidden desires. Jessica Venture came to Dublin to spend some time bonding with her birth mother’s family, a connection she desperately needs after losing her adoptive parents within a year of each other back in the States. The last thing she expected was to fall in love with a handsome, mysterious, and sometimes scary man who was well known for his sexual appetite, but rejected her attempts to seduce him. There are outside forces that will do anything to keep them apart, and Jessica will have to make a desperate choice that will change their lives forever.
Warning: There is light bondage, domestic discipline, spanking, and a F/F scene that is a voyeuristic Doms delight.
Author’s Note: This is part One of Two for Alex and Jessica’s story. In Alexandr’s Cherished Submissive we get a look into the past and the events that shaped Alex and Jessica into the people they are today. Part Two, Alexandr’s Reluctant Submissive, is present day on, and the expected release date is early Fall 2015.

Looking for a REALLY good romance with some seriously juicy BDSM and one sexy Russian Dom that can make one sassy and sweet submissive dreams come true? Then your in for a treat with Alexandr's Cherished Submissive by Ann Mayburn. Miss Mayburn has an incredible talent for drawing readers into her world of HOT sex, dirty talking Doms, and sweet and sassy women that turn them inside out with the need to take, conquer, and cherish them.
I was especially drawn in with Alexandr and Jessica's story. We have a tough as nails man, a son of one of the most dangerous man in the Novikov Bratva. He sometimes is an assassin and recently, bodyguard to a friend's niece, Jessica. He falls hard and fast for her and when things get ugly and her life is threatens, Alexandr decides he wants Jessica, not just for some kinky sex, but wants to cherish her and protect her from the very men that are hunting her. Jessica is totally unaware of who Alexandr or her uncle really is and when people start threatening her, its Alexandr that comes to her rescue. She is drawn to him with his sexy body and dangerous vibe. He introduces her to the world of BDSM and soon things are getting out of hand and Alexandr wonders if maybe Jessica is safer and better off without him in her life.
I truly loved Alexandr. His dangerous aura yet his sweet and dominant side is hard to resist. Not to mention he is wickedly handsome. Jessica is a spitfire who has such a soft side to her due to her being so young. She trusts easily and she helps everyone, even when she is unaware of the danger it unwittingly puts her in. These two amazing characters clash beautifully together. Sparks are instantaneous and the passion is crackling from the first moment they are together. The sex between them is damn near combustible and I really adored how willing Jessica is to try new things with Alexandr. Of course, with a sweet yet dominant man like that, who wouldn't be down to try new things, especially when those things bring both of them immense pleasure.
Mayburn crafted a story so beautifully written and so erotic, its hard to put down. The plot is edgy and has plenty of suspense while there is lots of great characters, both main and secondary. I am SO IN LOVE AND LUST WITH THIS WORLD. We are left wondering what will go down next and I am dying to find out how Alexandr with win over Jessica in the second book featuring these extraordinary dynamic couple. For Alexandr's Cherished Submissive, I give it A GLORIOUS FIVE SHOOTING STARS! Its impossible not fall for this book, let alone this incredible series Ann Mayburn has created.

With over forty published books, Ann is Queen of the Castle to her husband and three sons in the mountains of West Virginia. In her past lives she's been an Import Broker, a Communications Specialist, a US Navy Civilian Contractor, a Bartender/Waitress, and an actor at the Michigan Renaissance Festival. She also spent a summer touring with the Grateful Dead-though she will deny to her children that it ever happened. From a young Ann has had a love affair with books would read everything she could get her hands on. As Ann grew older, and her hormones kicked in, she discovered bodice ripping Fabio-esque romance novels. They were great at first, but she soon grew tired of the endless stories with a big wonderful emotional buildup to really short and crappy sex. Never a big fan of purple prose, throbbing spears of fleshy pleasure and wet honey pots make her giggle, she sought out books that gave the sex scenes in the story just as much detail and plot as everything else-without using cringe worthy euphemisms. This led her to the wonderful world of Erotic Romance, and she's never looked back. Now Ann spends her days trying to tune out cartoons playing in the background to get into her 'sexy space' and has accepted that her Muse has a severe case of ADD.
