Buy Links: Amazon US | Amazon UK

Cover: Kellie Dennis @ Book Cover By Design


Gideon McCade—weighed down by memories of his previous life as a Navy SEAL and a CIA agent—has blood on his hands. He turns to his BDSM club, Catharsis, and Dominating submissives to get him through the daily grind of civilian life. Knowing his past is too much to inflict on a life partner, he keeps his connections brief and superficial. When his former life comes back to haunt him, his desire for revenge pulls him back into the shadows, darkening his hopes for a future in the light.

Temporarily sidelining his career as a tattoo artist, Sebastian Phillips works as a composite artist for the local police department. To alleviate the inescapable burden of a congenital medical condition, he immerses himself in his art and seeks the catharsis of submission. But with life weighing heavily on his shoulders and darkness encroaching, he yearns for a contract with a Dominant that sees past the protective barriers he’s erected to the vulnerable submissive within.

When happenstance brings Gideon and Sebastian together, their connection is undeniable. The knowledge that they are both too damaged to form permanent bonds of love causes them to rely on an impersonal contract to fulfil their physical needs. But staying emotionally detached becomes impossible, and breaking their contract seems the only option. Will Gideon’s need for vengeance and Sebastian’s declining health destroy what’s grown between them, or will they help each other find their way back into the light?

5 Stars

Sebastian Phillips is scarred inside and out. Having grown up believing he was a burden, he lives his life never letting anyone too close. His membership to the BDSM club, Catharsis, is his only outlet. Sebastian longs for a Dom, so his encounter with Master G and subsequent offer of a temporary contract seem perfect. After all, he doesn't need anyone learning his secrets.

Gideon McCade has left his past life behind. Former Navy SEAL, former CIA operative and current owner of Catharsis. He meets Sebastian under difficult circumstances, but sees his beautiful submission underneath the wounded man. Offering a temporary contract to the boy is the best he can do, as his past deeds are unforgivable. Even though Gideon has left his past behind, he has hatred and revenge in his heart so he believes that in the long run he can never be the person Sebastian needs. Gideon's past deeds and Sebastian's secrets may be too much to overcome to admit they are in love and need more than a temporary contract.

First let me say, I have been waiting for this book as patiently as possible and WOW, was it worth it! Sweet submissive Sebastian and dominating Gideon are everything you could want in a story. As they go from meeting to a temporary Dom/sub relationship and on into falling in love, Luna David puts emotion into every word. I cried more than once over the pain and hurt that Sebastian had endured and continued to hide from his Dom. His low self-esteem and shy submissive behavior don't allow him to see all the amazing things he does for everyone except himself. Gideon looks beneath the surface and finds a truly beautiful soul. The scenes of BDSM are wonderfully written and place a beautiful picture in your mind. Getting to see the McCade family and catch up with Braden, Zavier and Nana is amazing. How they are all so welcoming of Sebastian as family, makes you wish they were yours. I know I've just finished Saving Sebastian, but I am eagerly awaiting the next book in the Custos Security Series.

Author Bio

Once upon a time… deep in the shadows of the infamous BDSM club Catharsis, Luna David, future Authoress Extraordinaire, dreamed of crafting epic gay romance novels to the chorus of whips, chains, and riding crops.

Working for the man by day, and playing caped crusader by night, she fell in love with a superhero whose alter-ego was a mild-mannered financial analyst. With the combined strength of their Evasion Superpowers, they’re able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, and escape the horrifying drudgery of peopling and adulting as often as humanly possible.

Luna fiercely devotes herself to her amazing family and friends, drinks coffee like the life-giving ambrosia that it is, and reads gay romance novels voraciously. And while watching a movie and cuddling is still the perfect date night for her and her superhero hubby, her favorite moments are when he makes her laugh until she cries and can’t help but fall in love with him over and over again.

Life for the superhero duo seemed perfect until the birth of twins threw their world into delightful and exhausting chaos, proving perfection always has room for improvement. Leaving big business behind, The Adorables became her full-time job. But eventually Luna realized it was the perfect time to follow her dreams, so she hung up her cape, donned her rainbow slippers and Wonder Woman pajamas, and dove into her fictional world. When not saving her little monsters from themselves or overseeing the Dungeon, Luna slays fictitious evildoers between the pages of her manuscripts.

Her books feature strong dominant males and the men they would die protecting. With love, her hero, and their monsters in her corner, Luna spends her free time writing sweet and kinky, sensual and erotic gay romance. Love has no gender and no boundaries—and Luna loves nothing more than giving her heroes the same HEA she’s been lucky enough to enjoy every day.
