Eyeing the North Star Directions in African Canadian Literature yTo name a few all exist in the same universe on the same timeline A few of them share history whichou ll learn about in Forgive Us and all of them will be interacting with each other in a lot of different ways across multiple worksSomething many of my readers might not The Myth of Repressed Memory False Memories and Allegations of Sexual Abuse yet realize is that most of my books exist in the same universe and there are subtle connections sprinkled across them to unite the storylines Forgive Us is directly connected to characters and organizations in Whatever The Cost and my forthcoming release Song of the Lonesome Cowboy The Society of Masters project means that this broad universe just got a hell of a lot bigger by also encompassing the brilliant work of my co conspirator Jack L Pyke and the Don ti series It opens doors to endless tantalizing possibilitiesJack What plans doou have for the Deliver Us seriesLynn My next two releases in the Deliver Us series will be preuels both of which will be included in a forthcoming anthology of Deliver Us shorts The first is a short story titled Divine Surrender and it s the tale of how Kyle and Ben first met and became involved with each other Kyle was only a teenager Ben was a Dom at Diadem The second is a short story titled about Gabriel and Darrek s tropical anniversary trip to a private BDSM resort This trip was mentioned briefly in From Temptation but Pleasures of Paradise takes a in depth look at what happened I m really excited to share these two They re both a lot lighter in tone than the rest of the series and meant to be fun sexy readsI am also about to begin work on the 4th book in the Deliver Us series titled Our Sins Thus far in the series a lot of what the guys have dealt with centered on coming to terms with their pasts Our Sins will focus on the present and future of the group They ll begin to look outside their small circle for help support and friendship from the larger BDSM community around them There will also be tie ins with a few of my other novels including Whatever the Cost Song of the Lonesome Cowboy Bound by Lies and my forthcoming book Loving the Master a spinoff of Bound by Lies with David and Shea David was also trained by the Master s CircleJack I know what music A Modern Day Persuasion you listened to during the writing of From Temptation it was very dark and emotional Did that change at all for Forgive Us What didou listen to when ou were writingLynn I did have a different musical strategy for Forgive Us There are so many different pairings and characters in this book There are four core relationships TraceMicahLilianna GabrielDarrek BenKyle and GrayJackJan and ten main characters total Most of my efforts focused on letting each character s uniue voice shine through clearly and weaving all of the threads of the plot together in a seamless way that wasn t overwhelming Because of that I listened to a lot of music that was fluid and helped inspire me in uieter subtle ways like jazz classical acoustic indie rock However for specific characters I would listen to specific genres When I was writing from Kyle s point of view I d listen to electronic and house music Darrek jokes about Kyle s preference for house music in Forgive Us mainly due to my own befuddlement as to why that genre has always inspired me to write Kyle Trace was classic rock and Americana For Gabriel and Darrek I d go back to indie emo rock to take me to the same moody place which inspired Deliver Us initially Thanks so much Lynn It s a pleasure working plotting and generally talking to ou as always I re read the first two full length books to this series not long ago and I must say that I loved these men that Lynn Kelling gave to us the second time around But with this book I could not have loved any of them than I did Trace Micah and especially Dare had my heart fluttering and me reading as fast as I could even though I never wanted this book to end But not only did I have the great joy of spending time with Lynn s wonderful men I had the chance to spend time with three other very special men Forgive Us has some very special visitors and they are Jack Jan and Grey from Jack L Pyke s wonderful world that we all fell in love with in Don
TAll In All Thisin all this was very close to perfect for me the only improvement would be Dare and Jack with a book that never endedLynn Kelling had written a few of my favourite books and this one is being added to that special list I know a lot of tags There was lots of smexin Not a complaint mind ouThis is book 3 and the culmination of everything that s happened in Deliver Us From Temptation and these guys are messed up but there s hope for change redemption and healingThis is primarily Trace and Micah s story but Gabriel and Darrek and Ben and Kyle are interwoven and we have the additions of the visiting Gray Jack and Jan From Don T Gray Don t Gray Trace s ex and they have unresolved issues of course and Diadem s rogue club status has brought the attention of the Master s Circle upon the club and the Doms of Diadem and Gray is there to evaluate and bring them into line on behalf of the MCGray watches and helps to enforce the boundaries and rules for the various characters view spoilerGabriel using Darrek or Trace for his daddy issues Ben and the others not allowing Darrek and Kyle to be alone together hide spoiler Crazy train tries to
become a daisy chain The runaway train is brought back under control as the insanity prevalent in thea daisy chain The runaway train is brought back under control as the insanity prevalent in the two books in the series is dialed back That doesn t mean there isn t the wild carousel of acts and surprise appearances it just means the main characters aren t wielding deadly weapons against each others mental well being Enter Gray the calm in the storm and meet Trace as ou ve never known himThere is a series crossover occurring with this book from Lynn Kelling s Deliver Us and Jack Pyke s Masters Circle Gray Jack and Jan are the stabilizing force in chaos of Diadem The synergy turns out well Gabriel and Darrek are still a mess Events paranoi This was the book in the Deliver Us series I was most looking forward to in my eyes Lynn has saved the best to last Trace and Micah the two men in this series who have played their part on the periphery but remained a constant the two men above all the others that have had my heart racing at the glimpses we have had at their relationship and the roles they play within the dynamics of these Diadem men The anticipation of their story has kept me on pins as characters they have intrigued me the most and I so wanted to love them Well let me tell ou I WAS NOT disappointed Trace brings an edge of danger to this series his resolve unwavering he is a force to be reckoned with calm resolute steadfast in his loyalty and fiercely protective of those he loves Trace is all power in a cocky self assured way he s rough around the edges wild For help from the world he tried to leave behind the Master’s Circle in England Tensions rise to a fever pitch as Trace’s hidden truths shake up the lives of everyone in his tangled tight knit family MM For content labels and excerpt see details on publisher's si.
Out the other person Sure Trace does have a few large pieces he needs to share It is good to see Micah s response as accepting than feeling wronged for never knowing the details of Trace s pastWhat is really good about this book is the way Ms Kelling blends two different worlds so well together Seeing Gray Jack and Jan in this series is a delight Oddly enough a reader learns about Gray in this book than in Don t and Antidote Gray still comes across as an omniscient dominant The relationship between Gray and Trace is what really sheds light about Gray Gray is a bit of an ass and the reader learns about the oung Gray who did make mistakes It s not clear exactly how Gray changed for the better It is unfortunately depressing to see how bad Gray was for Trace In the present Gray is now an agent of good influence and tough loving support It s nice to the contrast between Black Women's Activism: Reading African American Women's Historical Romances (African American Literature and Culture: Expanding and Exploding the Boundaries, 5) younger and older GrayOverall this story pulled many emotions from me Mostly my heart felt constant sorrow for several of the characters Because I felt for these characters I became engaged and enjoyed the story fully The BDSM is smoking hawt and enjoyable for me As a first book from Ms Kelling it rocks for me Recommended to read this series in order Definitely recommended for mm lovers who enjoy complicated BDSM pairings ARC provided by the author for an honest review Like many fans of Jack L Pyke I was a bit worried about Jack and Lynn Kelling crossing over their two series to create a new world The Society of Masters but I have to say my fears were allayed Lynn did good and the anticipation of them being on page had my heart racingReally really loved this one Can t wait for the the next seuel in the new universe The Society of Masters Highly recommendedIfou want details read Moniue s wonderful review on Sinfully Sexy Forgive Us introduces the Society of the Masters where Lynn Kelling kindly kidnaps my guys from Don t and does wicked things to them over in America We both came to the conclusion that reviewing each other s novels isn t something that Sensemaking you guys want to see of course we re both gonna say the works are than worth it Instead we thought we d offer two nice private interviews on each of our reviews of both Forgive Us and Antidote here I m talking to Lynn about Forgive Us Hopefully it will help introduce what our novels are about and how they fit togetherThere s a full disclaimer before we start I receive no financial gain from Forgive Us Lynn receives no financial gain from how I use her characters in Breakdown and Gray Matters We share characters worlds and just have a whole load of fun in the processSo Lynn waggles eyebrows It s the start of the Society of Masters project combining two worlds that already have a firm footing with readersDeliver Us introduced everyone to Darrek and Gabe From Temptation then brought in Ben and Kyle and the very dark connections between Kyle and Darrek Forgive Us builds on that heated complexity and brings Trace and Micah into the mix What role doou think Trace takes in the dynamics of the whole group How does it impact on his personal life Lynn Trace is really the person tying everyone together Because Trace founded Diadem with Ben they met Gabriel Without Diadem Kyle would never have met Ben and Darrek wouldn t have met Gabriel And it s the specific set of circumstances created by Diadem which unearthed Kyle and Darrek s secrets in From Temptation It s all been one long domino effect of one piece knocking into another and another Forgive Us looks at the bigger picture of where all of the events so far have led because of things Trace has set in motion Trace is also the person who has established the group as of a family than a disjointed group of co workers or friends and there are *complex reasons for why he s done that which are revealed in Forgive UsTrace definitely takes a paternal role *reasons for why he s done that which are revealed in Forgive UsTrace definitely takes a paternal role the group and not just because he s slightly older than the others It s a conscious decision on his part to take responsibility for the safety of everyone he cares about or even the loved ones of people he cares about If something is wrong he tries to take action to correct the problem Sometimes he acts secretly sometimes not It s the increasing level of secrecy that really begins to affect his ability to manage everyone s troubles The New Art and Science of Teaching yet Gabriel Ben and Micah are leaning on him than ever The cracks have formed and it s only a matter of time before all of Trace s carefully guarded secrets come spilling outJack Canou tell us something about Micah How did he first meet Trace for exampleLynn Micah is a pretty complicated guy In order to understand how he ended up with Trace Crafting with Alcohol Inks you have to know where he came from Micah is married to his first love Lilianna with whom he has an open relationship They re both bisexual and they have an agreement that they are each allowed to take lovers of the same gender It s understood that those lovers are meant to be a sexual outlet only When Micah and Lilianna s only child Moira died threeears prior to Forgive Us many of their agreements and good intentions began to come unraveled Lilianna began to spend time away from Micah and with her lover Saoirse At the same time Micah became Ben s submissive
through Diadem It was a business relationship which Lilianna knew about and approved of However whenDiadem It was a business relationship which Lilianna knew about and approved of However when began to have sex with Trace their affair was not at all professional and Lilianna wasn t aware of it As Micah and Lilianna grew farther apart emotionally Lilianna again tried to sate Micah s unrest by bringing Trace into their marital bed so that they could have threesomes together Trace was also bisexual unattached and interested so it made sense to a certain extent from Lilianna s perspective Trace and Lilianna both love to dominate so naturally and happily Micah would submit to them both Micah ended his contract with Ben and instead began to submit off the books and without Lilianna s knowledge to Trace Though Micah and Trace s affair may have begun because of pure mutual attraction they began to rely on each other for other types of support as well Micah also began to train and work as a Dom at Diadem As a switch it gave him a chance to experience the other side of things but also gave him an excuse to be around Trace as often as he liked That s where Forgive Us picks up Micah has developed this multi layered relationship with Trace most of which Lilianna is oblivious ofJack Sounds like a complex web of lives and loves Now Forgive Us is the main novel in the Society of Masters project Can ou tell us a little about the SoM project What is it exactlyLynn The Society of Masters project is the merging of the worlds of the Deliver Us series and the Don t series That means all of the characters from both series Gabe Dare Trace Micah Gray Jack and Jan. Be Master and lover for Micah Trace is the one they all depend on to step in when anything or anyone threatens his closest friendsBut even Trace is in over his head when haunting events of the past endanger all their lives Trace is forced to call on old connections. ,
What an amazing series I loved this story and the characters were absolutely incredible The way Lynn Kelling can weave a story line this intense and vast throughout the three books just blows me away As soon as I finished I just wanted to start back at the beginning and read the whole thing over againThroughout all three books I ve got to say Kyle just held a special place in my heart with Gabriel at a close second All of the characters develop and reveal aspects of their lives and personalities as the story progresses but something about those two just really got to me but I love them allThe pacing is perfect and as the relationships develop and the plot intensifies there are wonderful moments of deep heartfelt love and a bit of humor too Absolutely perfect book This third book in the Deliver Us series is really a turning point It had less of the darkness of the first two and wrapped up a lot of the storyline while opening up a whole new avenue for the characters I would not go into this if ou haven t read the first two as it really is a continuation of the storyWhile Trace and Micah are the focus Gabe Dare Kyle and Ben are very much involved Although their secrets have previously come out the effects are still rippling through the group and there may still be someone looking to hurt them We now find out that Trace has a secret past that is threatening the business he has built and could potentially bring harm to the friends he considers his family Trace finds the greatest comfort in his collared sub and lover Micah Into the middle of all this worry Trace s former lover Gray is paying a visit under the guise of an inspection of Diadem by the Master s Circle but they too have unfinished businessMicah is also struggling to overcome his own personal losses He has had an open marriage with Iliana and although she is aware of and involved with Trace she is unaware of the extent of Trace and Micah s relationship Although they had problems long before Trace entered the picture Micah still loves her and does not want to end the relationship view spoilerthere are some MF and MFM scenes in the story hide spoiler My ReviewA ratingIn my opinion this is not a book that The Intelligent Web you can just sit down and read This is the third book in the series following this group of guys who all work at a BDSM club called Diadem There s a lot of backstory that leads into the story in this book so to fully understand all that is going onou need to read the others in this series beforehand It would also be helpful to read Don t by Jack L Pyke which is AMAZINGLY good so ou ll just want to read it anyway And the second part of this warningthis book and the entire series is hardcore erotica involving BDSM practicesThis book really starts with Trace as the central character Trace is the guy within this group that binds them all together He s the top Dom and guy who started Diadem Trace has a past from his time in Europe that he s buried but in this book it s caught up to him And there are lots of past ghosts out there for all these six characters The fact of the matter is that they ended up in this lifestyle for a reasonthey all have some serious mental scars from their pasts In book two those all flared to life and the guys truly fell apart This book is the healing of all that and I enjoyed getting to see them finally overcome it all and become the really strong guys they are at their coremade even stronger by the ties that bind them all together And that truly is the heart of this book The ties between these guys They are a familya highly dysfunctional and sexual family lol but family nonetheless When something goes wrong for one of them they are all there to make it right and support each other in EVERY way possible Yeah ou should probably know going into itthese guys have very committed partners but they ALL sleep with each other at some point in timeit s a very open group of guysThis book also creates the beginning of the cross over with Jack L Pyke s world that she created in Don t one of my absolute favorite books from last ear I loved getting to see Jack Jan and Gray in this story and love what they add to the tension and suspense And there is a touch of suspense and drama to this one too Although I see MUCH of that to come with the story line they had going on in the background with the videos The two worlds are incredible apart but togetherLOVE Lynn Kelling did a great job writing Jack L Pyke s characters It will be interesting to see how the reverse goes for Jackbecause let s face it Lynn s characters are really messed up But I do love them with all their dysfunctionsI know this isn t the end for these guys but this
is the third book in the series and it wrapped up this particular set of story linesthe third book in the series and it wrapped up this particular set of story lines well I liked the way it was all concluded and was very happy with the outcome on all the various threads of harmful relationships these guys have had along the way Kudos to Lynn Kelling for tying it all up VERY well It s complicated definitely describes Trace s life In Forgive us by Ms Kelling Trace s past and connection to the Master Circle from London becomes clear Full disclosure I never read the first two books and now I have to go back and read them I m intrigued Ms Kelling is a new to me author whom I m going to be watching Her characters are interesting The tangled web of relationships is fascinating for me to figure out and connect Basically everything seems to revolve around Trace Trace is barely holding himself together to keep his people safe and protected Trace also seems to have a split personality struggling with Patrick trying to take over After a bit it all makes senseMs Kelling does a good job of writing an easy to follow plot There are a few twists and turns et she guides the reader through
each of them her voice is smoothof them Her writing is smooth gentle ebbs and flows The sex scenes she writes are filled with erotic tension They tease and tantalize a reader into a sexual frenzy Several of her Ds scenes are less set up scenes and rough sex with clear dominance The way she writes the ielding of the submissives is divine Many of scenes reuired a bit of time out for me to enjoy some me time If I need to stop a book in order to satisfy my desires several times it s definitely a pleasurable book Ms Kelling does come up with some clever edging scenes Some of the rules for protocol are odd at times until the past becomes clear Then it makes perfect sense and tugs on the heart strings This story is about secrets revealed which causes big waves for all of Trace s inner circle Perhaps I am jaded and these types of reveals do not impact me as much as the characters For some reason they feel totally misled and a bit betrayed I can never understand why lovers feel they must know every little detail ab.
