Guest Post & Excerpt: Steel Dominance (Steamwork Chronicles #3) by Cari Silverwood #FMBAuthor

Author Cari Silverwood is here again today to talk about  her last Steamwork Chronicles novel, Steel Dominance! 

Also do not miss the exclusive excerpt below! :) 

Steel Dominance is the third book in my Steamwork Chronicles series and it’s firmly in the genre of steampunk. I’ve been asked many times to explain steampunk but I think the fastest way to give people a taste of what it means is to call it retro-scifi with ambitions of history. Because I also write within the BDSM genre, Steel Dominance also has its fair share of spankings and bondage mixed in with the romance and the dastardly evil plots of the villains.
If you love BDSM but detest anything with a hint of fantasy, steer clear. On the other hand, if you adore BDSM, as well as scifi and fantasy, and tales that stretch your imagination, then this book will please you no end. Beware. Inside this book are clockwork pets, crocodiles and warriors, and an ancient puzzle that only my smart heroine, Sofia, with her talent for cryptography, has a hope of solving. Plus there is a grand battle set in the grounds of the palace of the Emperor-Bey of Byzantium.
The BDSM is not for the faint-hearted, though it is consensual there is quite a bit of impact play. There is also one ménage in the form of a Mff scene where Sofia is tied up and at the mercy of both Dankyo and a woman called Tansu.
Since I don’t write flimsy worlds and plots, in fact I love figuring out how the crazy jigsaw of a complex story fits together, there is also some sneaky political intrigue and some great action scenes.
Here’s an exclusive excerpt from Steel Dominance, for Full Moon Bites only:

Yawning, stretching her kinked muscles, Sofia eyed the bare, crumpled sheet next to her. No Dankyo.
Slowly she sat up. Thank God.
She was here to finish a task. To prove she was the one person able to solve the Clockwork Warrior mystery. To get a job and success from this. Not to become Dankyo’s…mistress. And boy, she’d really gotten off to a good start doing that.
The ache in her nipples reminded her of the grip of the wires. And that brought back to her exactly what she’d done—let herself be tied up, displayed, and made to come in front of a room full of strangers.
This is Byzantium, where slaves do as their Masters bid them. Where no one will know if you surrender yourself to me.
Those words had given her freedom.
She shook her head. While it was happening, last night had been strangely wonderful, and that she’d been watched by others had made it even more erotic but not to be repeated. Just like she’d told Dankyo. But if she kept sleeping in his bed, next to his—she shut her eyes—glorious body, she’d never manage anything.
So, did she drag off the bedclothes and dump some in a corner to prove her point?
She got up, picked up a pillow, and eyed the rugs, the chests, the lack of spare space, and sighed. Where?
The door opened, and she realized she was wearing precisely…nothing.
The pillow suddenly became an important accessory. She clutched it to her, concealing groin and breasts.
Dankyo entered, then merely raised one eyebrow and stalked toward her. Black trousers, buttoned-up ivory shirt—all neat and businesslike, as always. Words avalanched into her mind—daunting, scary, and hell, sexy. Backing up only worked for two steps, when her shoulders hit the wall.
“Morning,” she squeaked.
He propped his arm overhead on the wall, caging her in. “Good morning, Sofia.” His other shoulder moved, then a second later, his hand smoothed down her bare side. “I see you’ve not dressed.”
“I’m—” She swallowed, sure she’d just flared her nostrils, and feeling the weight of his stare. Might as well paint YOU MAKE ME NERVOUS on my face.
“What? Not sure what to do? You said yes to me last night.” Now his hand slid upward, leaving a trace of heat, and awakening her flesh. He reached her neck, then her jaw, then her mouth.
Sensations trickled from where he gently thumbed along her mouth.
Tasting him became such a desperate need her tongue ached. But her mind clamored at her. How do I get out of this? I’m about to slide down the wall.
“I said yes was temporary. Not today.”
“I see.” He kissed her forehead. The closeness, the way he’d trapped her, made weakness shimmy through her body. His breath warmed her, and his mouth pressed on her skin. “There is only one problem with that, my lady. After last night, yes is no longer what I’m looking for. If you want me to stop, I need to hear a no. Understand?”
His weight was on the pillow now, squeezing her firmly into the wall. No and you can’t bobbed up in her head, then sank again. She inhaled, long and shakily, then let her muscles relax. “Okay,” she whispered.
“Now. The pillow.” Though she grabbed instinctively, he pulled it away in an upward direction. It was either hang on to the thing and look silly, or let it go.
Damn. Not good.
The mean twinkle in his eyes made her scowl while she tried to figure out whether to cover her important bits with her hands.
“Uh-uh.” He shook his head, snared one hand, and kissed the back. “Let me see you.”
“I’m not some prize at a fair.”
“No?” His eyes shadowed into darkness. “To me, you’re the greatest prize of all.”
Her heart seized up before thudding merrily back into action.
“But prizes—” He switched his grip to hold both her wrists, then inexorably lifted her arms above her head and clamped her wrists to the wall. If he’d nailed them there, she’d have had more freedom. Warmth flared into her groin.
His gaze travelled from her face downward, lingering on her breasts before lowering. “Prizes need to be displayed. And touched.”
Though his eyes met hers for a second, as if checking her response, he wasn’t giving her any choice—not now anyway. As his big hand covered her body, shaping into all her curves and stirring to life every portion of her, her breaths came harder and harsher.
“All of you is mine to handle. From your breasts…” She flinched as he came near her already sensitive nipples, but he fondled each one, using his nail to cut a fine circle about each areola before his palms smoothed in the southerly hot direction. By the time he reached the triangle of her sex and cupped her mound, she was arching into his hand. “To here.”

A brilliant researcher, Sofia must unravel the ancient puzzle of the Clockwork Warrior or her career will be in tatters. Yet the tomb of the warrior is in the dangerous city of Byzantium, inside the harem of the Emperor. She knew she’d have to pose as a slave—but not that her “owner” would be the incredibly bossy, gorgeous bodyguard she’s been assigned.

A life of military duty has left Dankyo unprepared for Sofia. He’s never met a woman quite like this. She’s smart and beautiful, and she’s something that he’s finding almost irresistible—despite the way she fights against masquerading as his slave, she’s submissive right down to the bottom of her soul. And that’s bringing out every dominant instinct in his body.

But even as he realizes she’s captured his heart, the city explodes into madness. Surviving seems impossible. Can love and a Dom who will never give up overcome sheer bloody-minded evil?

 Cari Silverwood writes the way the world should be - dangerous and sexy with bullets piercing the darkness and lovers wrenched close by ropes. When you need escape, when you need that rough lover to bring you to your knees, here you will find stories to singe your fingers. The taste of adventure, the tang of BDSM, the burn of fantasy run wild. Brace yourselves, if you dare to read. this real world, she has a lovely family in Australia, with the prerequisite teenager who dwells in the dark bedroom catacombs…a husband who raises eyebrows when he catches glimpses of what she writes, and a furry menagerie of other animals barking, meowing, and swimming about the place.
