EXCLUSIVE EXCERPT: LM Somerton's The Edge Series plus #Giveaway!

The Edge Series

The Edge is a training company with a difference. Its weekend clients come for classes in bondage and domination, not team building and problem solving.

The management, staff and customers of The Edge do not lead boring lives. In fact they have a habit of getting themselves into all kinds of trouble. Put Dominant, possessive alpha males together with bratty, loveable submissives and sparks are bound to fly. These Tales from The Edge are their stories.

Reaching the Edge:

When you reach the edge, you can't avoid taking a leap of faith.

Joe Dexter leads a complicated life. In one world he is a consultant criminal psychologist—in another he runs The Edge, a successful corporate training company. He's also an active Dom in the London BDSM scene.
A social call to The Underground, a club owned by an old friend, turns into much more when Joe is introduced to a prospective sub. Falling hard for the boy's tumbling blonde curls, huge blue eyes and desperate need for protection, Joe carefully coaxes him out of his shell. By the end of an intense weekend, unbreakable bonds have been forged and Joe is well on the way to becoming Olly's Master.

Joe knows that there is trauma in Olly's past, but it is not until his professional and private lives collide that Joe discovers the truth. He knows he shouldn't have let Olly out of his sight but it's too late—Olly's old Master is back on the scene and he's not in the mood to forgive and forget.

With Olly's life on the line, Joe risks everything to save him. Has Joe found his perfect submissive only to lose him in a horrible twist of fate, or will love win the day? They've reached the edge and there's no avoiding a leap of faith.

Living on the Edge:

Sometimes it takes willpower to resist temptation but courage to give in.

Aiden Keller is a brilliant and intriguing young man. When he's convicted of hacking, his sentence takes him to The Edge, a high-end corporate training company with a mysterious sideline. There he is given into the custody of its owner, the enigmatic and demanding Heath Anders, and his business partner Joe Dexter.

From the moment Heath takes charge of Aiden he recognises the boy's submissive nature, even though it is well hidden beneath a veneer of snarky attitude. But for twelve months, Aiden will be his responsibility and Heath cannot allow himself to get involved whilst the boy is obliged to obey him.

Aiden settles into his new life with the help of Olly, Joe's pretty, submissive boyfriend, who is very perceptive when it comes to noticing the sparks of attraction flying between Aiden and Heath. Slowly and gently, he teaches Aiden that submission is not a weakness and to accept his desire to be dominated.
Unable to resist, Heath starts to test Aiden's willingness to be obedient, and against all the odds, love (and lust) start to bloom. Aiden, however, is not quite what he seems and his past is about to endanger all their lives.

Dancing on the Edge:

Life is a dance. Whether you lead or follow, the passion of it should sweep you away.

Carey and Alistair have the kind of relationship that is the envy of their friends. Carey is an old-fashioned Dom who appreciates quiet obedience. Alistair is a sub who is comfortable in his skin and finds peace in his submission. Needless to say, their happiness is too good to last.

When Alistair's powerful father chooses his reputation over his son, all hell is let loose. Forcibly committed to a clinic for reversion therapy, Alistair can only hope that his lover will save him.

Carey calls on his friends from The Edge and they band together not just to rescue Alistair but also to protect his future. They've all flirted with danger in the past—but friendship is worth any risk. As the tension mounts and the stakes get higher, new bonds are forged but will Carey and Alistair's love survive?

A Double-Edged Sword:

How do you stay standing when the ground is torn from beneath your feet?

Becket and Christian are taking the first, tentative steps towards the committed D/s relationship they both crave when the world literally explodes around them. In a frightening reversal of roles, Becket has to deal with his own vulnerability and Christian must find the strength to take care of his Dom. With the help of their friends at The Edge, the two men come to realise that dominance and submission cannot be switched on and off.

Events that could have ended in tragedy provide the catalyst that affirms their trust in each other, but there are still questions to answer. Is the safe path always the right one to take? Is control simply a state of mind?
One thing’s for certain, life’s too short for compromise

From Living on the Edge :

He must have drifted back to sleep, because the next time he woke the light was blocked by Heath’s broad-shouldered frame standing over him. The sheets and blankets on his bed had slipped down to his hips, and he was suddenly very aware of Heath’s steely eyes on his body. Self-consciously, he started to pull the sheets up.


That was it. Just one word, and it was enough to stop him moving. He wondered fleetingly if Heath practised mind control.

“What do you mean, no?”

Heath didn’t speak. His expression was set and stern. God, he looked glorious. Then he shot a hand out and yanked the bedcovers down to the foot of the bed, leaving Aiden totally exposed.

“What the hell?” Aiden blushed furiously and scooted up the bed, attempting to cover his half-hard cock with his hands. All his blood seemed to be rushing south and there was nothing he could do about it.

“Move your hands.”

It was an order. Plain and simple. Every atom of Aiden’s body screamed resistance, but his hands didn’t seem to be connected to his brain—they moved to grasp the edges of the bed. He didn’t have to look to know that his cock was swelling into iron hardness, standing proud from his body. He could feel the cool sensation of air hitting the moist tip. His balls felt tight against his body. Christ—he thought he might come just from knowing that Heath was examining him with a predatory look on his face.

Time must have slowed, because Heath seemed to be staring at him forever before he spoke.

“Very good. I expect obedience at all times. There are fresh clothes on your chair. Get dressed and come downstairs. My office is off the main hall.” Then he turned and left.

Aiden felt even more feverish than he had before. His skin was slick with sweat that was rapidly cooling. His dick throbbed and he felt…shit, he had no idea how he felt. Aroused, confused, indignant, bewildered… He didn’t know where to start.
