…Happily Ever After
(A Masters and Mercenaries Novella)
by Lexi Blake
From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Lexi Blake comes a new story in her Masters and Mercenaries series…
A snarky submissive princess
Sarah Stevens’s life is pretty sweet. By day, she’s a dedicated trauma nurse and by night, a fun-loving club sub. She adores her job, has a group of friends who have her back, and is a member of the hottest club in Dallas. So why does it all feel hollow? Could it be because she fell for her dream man and can’t forgive him for walking away from her? Nope. She’s not going there again. No matter how much she wants to.
A prince of the silver screen
Jared Johns might be one of the most popular actors in Hollywood, but he lost more than a fan when he walked away from Sarah. He lost the only woman he’s ever loved. He’s been trying to get her back, but she won’t return his calls. A trip to Dallas to visit his brother might be exactly what he needs to jump-start his quest to claim the woman who holds his heart.
A masquerade to remember
For Charlotte Taggart’s birthday, Sanctum becomes a fantasyland of kinky fun and games. Every unattached sub gets a new Dom for the festivities. The twist? The Doms must conceal their identities until the stroke of midnight at the end of the party. It’s exactly what Sarah needs to forget the fact that Jared is pursuing her. She can’t give in to him, and the mysterious Master D is making her rethink her position when it comes to signing a contract. Jared knows he was born to play this role, dashing suitor by day and dirty Dom at night.
When the masks come off, will she be able to forgive the man who loves her, or will she leave him forever?

An Exclusive Interview With Lexi Blake:
~ with Jillian Stein of Read Love Blog
I loved loved loved this story! How did you choose Sarah and Jared for this novella?
Jared and Sarah met way back in a book called From Sanctum With Love. Even then, I knew these two would need their own story. They really sparked off each other, but Jared wasn’t ready. So I’ve been trying to figure out how to get these two back together and Enchanted is really their fairy tale second chance.
If Enchanted could have a theme song, what would it be?
“The Chain” by Ingrid Michaelson. I love that song and it really speaks to having to be brave enough to let someone back into your life after they’ve hurt you. That’s the challenge Sarah is facing. Jared hurt her when he left. He didn’t mean to, but she’s worried she can’t trust him. He’s got to win her back.
Is there a genre you would love to try writing in that you haven’t already?
I love horror. I would love to write a horror novel or script. I have some ideas playing around in my head so you never know!
Do you celebrate finishing a book with anything special? Dinner out? A new pair of shoes?
This time I celebrated by going to Paris, but I don’t do that every time obviously. I usually go out to nice dinner and take a couple of days off if I can.
