In the next sexy and suspenseful Benediction novel, an investigative reporter and an ex-soldier witness a murder outside of an exclusive sex club and while on the run, uncover a deadly conspiracy that begins with mobsters and corrupt FBI agents... and ends on Capitol Hill.

A woman who refuses to be tied down...

Investigative reporter Rachel Dawson is always looking for her next big story. While working on a feature about BDSM, she lands a one-night, no-holds-barred pass into the exclusive sex club, Benediction. Rachel doesn't have a deviant bone in her body—or so she thought—until the infuriating, ex-soldier Logan Bradford convinces her to try rope bondage under his capable hands. But a steamy night turns deadly when Rachel and Logan witness a gruesome murder.

A Dom who's determined to bind her to him...

Framed for a crime they didn't commit and hunted by corrupt FBI agents, they flee. As Rachel and Logan search for evidence to clear their names, the attraction they've been fighting ignites into fiery passion. Love is the last thing Rachel wants, but night by night, as Logan binds her body, he unravels the knots around her heart. And when they uncover a shocking political conspiracy, Rachel will stop at nothing to reveal the truth…and it just might kill her.

Confession time... There are times when I wished my reading slump monster was a physical being so I could kick him in the junk. Maybe then, he'll get the hint and stay away. Unless he looks like Chris Pratt, because if he did, then I would gladly succumb... But alas, he does not. Thankfully he got the hint and stayed far away as I read two books I've been dying to get my greedy little hands on, first of which was Blue Blooded by Shelly Bell. I loved White Collared and Red Handed, so I immediately wanted to dive right into this little gem. Holy Mother of Pearl, this book rocked! Her characters are always fantastic. I loved Rachel and I've been waiting for her book ever since she appeared as a background character in White Collared. As for Logan, well... I must have blacked out during his scenes because I didn't remember him from the previous books. It didn't take me long to fall in love with him, though. Especially in one scene with Rachel when they're...ahem...and he says...ahem... That is ALL I'm saying because you MUST experience that scene first hand. Swoon-freaking-tastic! The sexual tension between Logan and Rachel was off the charts. It was amazing! The foreplay between these two... Holy moly! Can I get some of that?? From start to finish, Blue Blooded kept me riveted. This book had it all... Sizzling sexual chemistry with elements of BDSM. Sweet and tender moments that'll make you giggle and blush. Suspense that'll keep you on the edge of your seat. All of this packed in one hot little package. Shelly Bell has easily become one of my favorite authors and I can't wait for Sawyer and Lisa's book. 

Oh... And Shelly? Can we please meet Logan's brothers in a future series? Pretty please? 

A sucker for a happy ending, Shelly Bell writes sensual romance often with a bit of kink and action-filled erotic thrillers with high-emotional stakes for her alpha heroes and kick-ass heroines.

She began writing upon the insistence of her husband who dragged her to the store and bought her a laptop. When she’s not working her day job, taking care of her family, or writing, you’ll find her reading the latest smutty romance.

She currently writes for Avon Red Impulse, Loose Id, and Soul Mate Publishing.
