Coming to the Castle

(3 customer reviews)

Come to the Castle and meet Hannah, Kaylee and Marshall. 
Holding Hannah
It’s while on the job that Hannah first discovers The Castle, a massive stone structure set in the wheat fields of Ohio. It’s soon-to-be THE vacation destination for the kink-inclined…if the Doms who run it can ever get it properly permitted and licensed, but Hannah’s nasty boss is determined that that will never happen. While on an inspection visit, one Dom in particular catches Hannah’s eye: Master Sam–strong, dark, wickedly-attractive, every inch of him the very last thing someone like Hannah needs in her life.

Kaylee’s Keeper
Kaylee Waters has saved her pennies for almost two years, mentally debated for six months, changed her mind no less than two-dozen times and finally purchased a three-day pass to what promised to be the vacation of a lifetime: The Castle, the kinkiest theme-resort-to-end-all-vacation-resorts. So what if she’d fibbed a little on her online application? (Everyone does!) So what if she’d never “actually” engaged in this type of play before? (She’s thought about it a lot.) So what if she’d never even been spanked? (She’s read tons of books.) This was the Castle, after all, and it promised to change everything. Unfortunately, her first scenario is a catastrophe and sends her from the room in tears, only to be sent to Master Marshall’s office – like a bad girl sent before the principal.

Meeting Marshall
What happens when five of your favorite naughty authors break the number one Castle rule regarded anonymity of its staff and guests? Why, nothing less than a one-way ticket not just to the Castle, but to Master Marshall’s office. One by one, they are summoned back to speak with him, and one by one they discover he is not in a forgiving mood.

A note from the publisher. These can be read as stand alone books, but if you love these make sure you read the rest of the books.

Sample Chapter

“Shit,” Sam said as soon as he was close enough for Marshall to hear him over the cacophony of hammers, saws, coordinated shouting and all the cursing that went along with sixty workers and a fully operational re-construction site. “It’s Goodson again.” 

“Yeah, I recognized the car.” Passing the building plans to his foreman, Marshall turned to watch the car park. Sam looked up at the castle—their castle—a fifteenth century monstrosity of cool gray stone, lovingly shipped block by block from its native Scottish soil on three different boats before finally meandering its way, first by train and then by truck, into this long-abandoned Ohio wheat field. The outside was almost complete. Only the outer walls and towers (and a smattering of outbuildings, but they’d get to those when they could) were still under construction. The interior renovations had started, but there was still a lot left to do. The stairs had gone up just last night and over half the marble had yet to be laid, but give it another month…just one more month of sixty hard-working men, most of them future guests and volunteers…and the Castle, Marshall’s life-long ambition and Sam’s fondest daydream (first, at age six because he was just nerdy enough to want to be a knight when he grew up, and then later on in early manhood, when his kink had grown in and all he could think about was wanton maidens being spanked and deflowered in the most deliciously depraved ways) would be ready for play. 

That is—if they could somehow convince Inspector Goodson to sign their remaining operating licenses and permits. 

Zoning and construction had been embarrassingly easy to get by comparison. Those inspectors were all business, making their tours of the site, checking off all concerns on their clipboards with minimal interest in the end game. Hell, not only had the Fire Marshall passed them, but he and his wife had already quietly signed on as guests during the Castle’s opening weekend.  

But not Goodson.  Oh no.   Not Goodson. 

This was his third visit to the partially completed Castle and their first appeal. Apparently, Goodson had a problem with BDSM and now, if Marshall couldn’t convince the county inspector to grant all their licensing and use permits, the Castle would not be opening for business. 

Sam took a deep and calming breath, swallowed back the urge just to walk out there and punch the sanctimonious prick.  Instead, he let Marshall walk out ahead of him to greet the man who had made it his single-minded goal to destroy not only the two of them, but every one of the six core members who had risked their entire financial futures to make this dream a reality. 

Having parked, Goodson was just getting out of his car. Noticing he was being watched, the inspector smiled broadly—a crocodile smile if Sam ever saw one—and raised his hand in greeting. 

“Who’s that with him?” Sam asked, suddenly noticing the woman trailing along in Goodson’s shadow. 

“I don’t know.” Marshall raised his hand in turn. He even managed to smile, albeit through gritted teeth (something Goodson wouldn’t be able to see from there) and his sharp blue gaze drifted past the inspector to the slender brunette. She was small, barely coming to the top of Goodson’s shoulder.  She must be familiar with job sites. Although she wore a dress suit (pants would have been better), at least she had the sense to wear flat shoes. The parking lot hadn’t yet been graded and graveled; heels would have sunk all the way in and could have resulted in a broken ankle within steps. 

“Just say the word,” Sam growled into his best friend’s ear. “I can have Casey and that big-ass strap-on of hers down here in ten minutes. Another ten after that, I guarantee we’ll have our permits.” 

Marshall almost laughed. “Not if he enjoys it.” 

“Ha. Twelve ounces of jalapeno lube says he doesn’t enjoy anything for days.” 

Now Marshall did laugh. “And the brunette?” 

Sam looked at her, turning her ear to something Goodson was saying and tugging at the sleeve of her business jacket as if she were trying to hide her arm from view. There was a story there, and his Dom’s curiosity perked to know it. He looked her over, as if seeing her for the first time all over again. She was a pretty little thing. He was a great admirer of pretty little things. Too bad she worked for the enemy. He smirked. “We’ll tag-team her.” 

“You’re incorrigible.” 

“Ha. But now you’re thinking about it too, aren’t you?” Sam lowered his voice because both Goodson and the woman were close enough now to overhear them. His dark eyes roved her one last time, but then he snorted. “Heaven help us if she’s anything like Goodson. I’d probably need an icepick just to crack those pretty legs open.” 

Marshall grunted, a non-committal sound, and Sam, burly arms folded across his chest and one finger stroking idly back and forth across his lip, found himself wondering if it might not be worth the effort.

    I am so envious of a reader finding this series now. You are very lucky! Most of the books are already published. It’s a brilliant read. The first two stories in this book introduce the Masters. The last story is pure fun! The writer’s of the series meet Master Marshall. I read the series when it was first published and I still remember it well. They are so easy to read and well written. I highly recommend it. Well worth reading. Brilliantly written!

    A wonderful collection of the first two books in the Masters of the Castle series to see how it all began with Holding Hannah and Kaylee%u2019s Keeper and then add in Meeting Marshall to round the book out. Each book is written to read as a stand-alone.

    Holding Hannah is in the final building stages of the Castle and has Sam and Hannah meeting. In Kaylee%u2019s Keeper, it takes place years after the Castle has opened and Kaylee has saved up her money to enjoy a three-day visit and the experience, and along the way she and Master Marshall will cross paths repeatedly. In Meeting Marshall, it will have five naughty authors and their encounter with the Master of the Castle.

    As someone who was obsessed with The Masters of the Castle series, I was so excited to see that one of my favorite authors, Maren Smith, had written another chapter in the series. I was not disappointed! This is an incredibly great story of a young, somewhat naive, local reporter, who poses as a guest at the fabulous resort where fantasies become real, in hopes of finding a story that will establish her as a serious journalist. What she doesn%u2019t expect is that she will be paired with Reese and Eric – a tag team of strict and experienced Masters who will be her %u201Cdaddies%u201D for her visit. She is also surprised at their deep, masterful domination and her responses to it. Its a definite distraction as she plots to expose some big problems with the policies at the Castle. This book is as great as the others in the series and you won%u2019t want to miss it. Maren Smith knows how to make us care about an unsympathetic character and it%u2019s really fun to be in the world of the Castle again – with many familiar characters doing what they do best. A very hot and yummy story that I couldn%u2019t put down. Highly recommend!
