Hello, gentle readers! As promised, I'm here this week with the cover reveal for An Officer's Submission, Book 4 in the Cuffs, Collars, and Love series. An Officer's Submission is the continuation of SWAT officers Sergeant Logan Pierce and Clay Foster's story.
We first met Logan and Clay in The Sergeant. In Book 1, Logan and Clay started a wild relationship, full of tension and passion as they learned how to love one another as Dominant and submissive. Book 2 gives Officer Ryan Bennett and Detective Sam Roberts their shot at love. Book 3 is a sweet but very sexy Christmas novella for Logan and Clay. And now, we have Book 4, which releases March 16th. I shared the blurb last week. This week, in addition to the cover, I have a little excerpt for you as well.
And there it is. Isn't it beautiful? Now, I know what you're thinking. Christa, that's awful close to the cover for The Sergeant. And yes, it is. Intentionally. I know, I know. I'm supposed to have similar covers for marketing purposes. But in this case, the decision to use the same models was more of an emotional one. Logan and Clay are my first self-published babies, and their cover will always have a special place in my heart. So when it came time to do the cover for the second half of their story, I didn't want to stray too far.
In this case, I think their pose is perfect, we see a little more of Clay, which makes sense, because An Officer's Submission focuses on him. And of course, we have Logan showing his support with a hand on Clay's shoulder. Yay. They make me smiley faced. Okay! We've got the cover revealed. Now, let's talk excerpt and another round of ARC giveaways.
Excerpt from An Officer's Submission
Logan looked at his partner now, watching as Clay quietly undressed.
Clay nodded, but Logan saw the vulnerability in his eyes.
"Come here." Logan pulled his sub into his arms. "Talk to me."
"You know how when a cat wants attention from its owner, he wraps around their legs until he gets it?"
"That's how I feel right now. I want to be wrapped around you." He paused for a moment, breaking eye contact as he lowered his lashes. "And I want to let you take over and control me."
Logan tightened his embrace on his sub. Clay had come a long way since they'd first started their Dom/sub relationship. But Logan knew it was sometimes still a struggle for him to admit to his needs. He tipped Clay's face up. "You know I'll always give you what you need."
Clay nodded. "I know."
He kissed Clay gently, stroking a hand down his back. Clay returned the kiss, his lips soft and parted beneath Logan's. Logan kept one arm wrapped around Clay's waist as he reached out to turn off the light. The moon dimly lit the room as Logan pulled the covers back and got them into bed.
When they were laying on their sides, facing each other, Logan tugged Clay's leg over his waist. He ran a hand over his hip, slipping his fingers into the leg opening of the tight briefs Clay wore. Logan caressed the smooth skin of Clay's ass, kissing him with all the passion he felt for his lover. Clay moaned quietly, his warm breath brushing over his cheek. Logan trailed his lips up to Clay's ear.
"Mmmm, I love that noise. So sweet."
Gosh, Logan. Can you stop being in love with your submissive for two seconds? 😉You can find out how the rest of their story goes on March 16th.
