I’m proud to announce that the Hot, Rich and Dominant series is now COMPLETE! Book six, Risk and Reward, is out today! At the moment I only have links for Amazon (if you’re in the UK, click here!), All Romance eBooks and Smashwords, but as soon as I have others, I’ll post them here. Unfortunately, iTunes will take a few days, but everything else should be within the next 24 hours. 🙂
As I’ve also stated in my author’s note at the end of the book, I could never have done this without the support of everyone who’s told me how much they’ve enjoyed the books, and nudged me to find out when the next one will be out. You guys have made my millenium. Thank you, thank you, thank you. <3
“Every now and then, a Dom needs to accept a truth from his sub. This is one of those times, Sir, and you know I’m right.”
Trust and determination…
Nell is now Marc Cassidy’s collared submissive, despite being horrified by the dark family secret he has finally revealed to her. Together with Marc’s sister Serena, they hatch a plan to make his father pay for the crimes he has committed.
When things go awry and Nell is left to face the tyrannical head of the Cassidy Corporation alone, she finds herself tied up in a completely different situation to the BDSM play she loves. The stakes are high, and Marc will be forced to choose between his family and his submissive…assuming he can find Nell in time, and assuming she’s still alive.
Since I’ve finished the writing and am hard at work on the edits and such, I thought I’d give you a preview of what’s to come. Here’s the very first part of book Hot Rich and Dominant 6 – Risk and Reward!
I jerked into consciousness with disorienting suddenness, instinctively reaching out a hand to the empty side of the bed for my Master. What was that noise?
I sat up in bed, listening intently, trying to discern where the sound had come from. Nothing followed. Maybe I’d imagined it?
I wasn’t too worried about Marc’s absence, since sunlight was already edging through the small crack in the drapes. It was Sunday, so we didn’t have to be at work, and Marc sometimes let me sleep in while he cooked breakfast or worked out in the downstairs gym.
I’d just started to lie down again, intent on snuggling into Marc’s pillow and pretending he was still here to cuddle up to, when the noise began again. Six bangs in rapid succession, and this time, I knew exactly what they were.
I threw on clothing as fast as I could and ran downstairs, my heart pounding triple-time. Who was shooting? Was Marc okay? What about everyone else who lived here? Visions of Marc lying dead in a pool of blood, an entire clip of ammunition emptied into his chest, ran through my head. The silence was now thick and ominous.
And you’re running towards the person with the gun?
Sentinel meowed balefully at me as I entered the kitchen, slipping out between my legs into the hallway before I could react. I let him go, my nerves on edge as I realised there were large windows on three sides of me. Whoever had the gun could easily see and shoot me from outside without me being any the wiser. The hair on the back of my neck prickled against my new collar as I sought cover behind the kitchen island…

Hey, lovely people!
I know I’ve been quiet on the blogging front so far this year, but that’s certainly not true in other aspects of my life. In fact, I’m moving home on 1st February, so things have been insanely busy lately. The new place is only about three miles away from my current one, but sadly, that doesn’t make any difference to the phone company…who still need two weeks to connect me to the internet at my new address. Fail!
The good news, though, is that those two weeks without the distractions of the internet will be perfect for finishing off something I know a few of you have been waiting for for quite a while. I’ve managed to get Hot, Rich and Dominant 6 to a place where I can be confident about finishing it and having it ready for release by 28th February. Marc and Nell have almost finished their story – at least, as far as I plan to tell it. I can’t even tell you how excited I am to get this one out there. 🙂
As I’ve said, I’ll be offline for a couple of weeks, but feel free to drop me comments here, on Facebook or on Twitter. I’ll pick them up when I get back with a shiny, finished story.
The BDSM group on Goodreads are at it again! Season two of the BDSM Bedtime Stories is underway, and episode 11 is a sexy snippet from Hot, Rich and Dominant 2 – Learning Curve.

Thanks so much to those who’ve taken the time to reach out and tell me what you think about the book so far! I can’t tell you how happy it’s made me. 🙂
Yay! The newest instalment of Hot, Rich and Dominant is now available on All Romance eBooks, Smashwords, Amazon US and Amazon UK. More links to follow as I get them…
“If you don’t level with me, I can’t be your submissive. I can’t give control to someone who doesn’t trust me with the truth.”
Stepping into the spotlight…
Nell West has spent a whirlwind couple of months as Marc Cassidy’s submissive. But even as the handsome, charming vice-CEO of the Cassidy Corporation guides her into the BDSM scene at large, Nell senses he’s hiding a huge part of his past from her. What prompted him to leave the D/s community for over two years, and what exactly happened to end his relationship with his last submissive, Callie?
It’s not just Marc’s romantic past that remains an enigma. He’s working hard on something, but he’s keeping Nell in the dark. His intense, unspoken dedication to the project’s progress makes her uneasy. What is he planning, and why is it so important to Marc and his sister, Serena?
When the tension finally reaches breaking point and Marc’s carefully laid plans fall to pieces, Nell must find the strength to demand the same unfailing honesty from her Dom that he expects of her—whatever Marc’s reaction might be. Can she coax the secrets he’s hiding out into the open, or will he leave her with no choice but to walk away?
Question: Wait… Why is it named No More Secrets? I thought this book was going to be called Risk and Reward?
Answer: Well, yeah… but as you’ll know if you’re following my Facebook page, I’ve been having a little trouble with the ending, and the word count was going to be twice as long as the previous book’s. I was starting to feel the pressure, and that made me writer’s blocked! So rather than make everyone wait until the end of the year, I’ve split the book down into two and now I feel as though I have a bit more breathing room. 🙂
I promise I’ll stop making previews and get on with writing now! 😉
Happiness and joy! I managed to figure out how to do the hosting/domain thing and so my blog has moved to AmyValenti.com. 🙂 Hopefully nothing will go catastrophically wrong. I’ll be figuring out how to offer an exclusive free story to newsletter subscribers soon.
All this does mean I’ve been procrastinating a little bit, but I’m still working on HRD5 and am still planning to get it out this month!
So… I found a gorgeous collar on Etsy that would be perfect for Marc from Hot, Rich and Dominant to give to his submissive, Nell. I was lucky enough to get permission from the trader who makes them to describe it in the collaring scene, so here’s Nell’s ‘official’ new collar! Go here to see more pics of it.
Naturally she has a sturdier one for when Marc just has to pull her around the room by it. This would be a day collar. He’d have to pull her around by the hair instead if she was wearing this one. 😉
I’m still working on finishing up – I’ve got a few scenes left to write, but I’m being strict with myself and getting my writing time in. Excerpts coming soon…
So I’m sure it’s fairly obvious by the lack of cartwheeling and cheering that I’ve yet to finish Hot, Rich and Dominant’s last instalment. The reason for that is that Nell and Marc… errr… basically, they won’t stop getting it on. 😉
So what that means is that I just need a couple more weeks to deliver a finished, edited and fully sexed-up final book to you, my precious readers. In the meantime, I’ll be working hard to ensure I’ve got the answers you want, the kink you need and the sexytimes you crave!
And in the future, I won’t set concrete release dates for books until I know I can honour them. Promise. And I’m sorry for making you wait again.
