The Velvet Chair (Velvet Lies #1) by C.P. Mandara (Blog Tour with Review and #Giveaway)

The Velvet Chair
C.P. Mandara
(Velvet Lies #1)
Publication date: February 6th 2017
Genres: Erotica, Romance
“Oh, darling. You’re going to be so easy to conquer.” His finger reached under my chin and pulled my face back to meet his. “I can’t wait to strip you out of that dress and watch you crawl around my home naked. I’m going to spank that delectable ass with every damn pervertible I can find. Hairbrushes, wooden spoons, spatulas, and I might even try a damn baking sheet. That ass of yours is always going to be prettily pink and perfectly swollen while you’re under my roof.”
My name is Mark Matthews. I own half of London, and the part I don’t own, I’m working on.
Life was all going swimmingly well until Michael Redcliff entered my life, demanding that I marry his daughter. Actually, swap demand for blackmail. He’s got goods on me that I want no one else to see, so for the time being I need to be his little lapdog.
I’ll marry his daughter. I’ll give him all the status, money and power he can handle… for as long as it takes me to get a divorce. You see, I can’t renege on our little arrangement – but she can. I give her a week. One week and she’ll be screaming the place down for her legal counsel.
I am never wrong.

Holy Cow what an ending!

This is the first book in the "Velvet Lies" series but it not the first time we see Mark or Jennifer, if you've read The "Pony Tales" series you'll remember them. This book starts off with the wedding of Jennifer and Mark which isn't a glorious affair as you may think because these two are being forced into it by Jennifer's father. Michael Radcliffe has absolutely no qualms about the hell he puts his daughter through.

This was a HOT read and not for the faint of heart. There are some pretty intense BDSM scenes so be aware of this before you make your purchase, if this is something that may offend you please do not purchase this book and then leave a negative review, its not fair to the author.  But if you love the intense BDSM play go for it, you'll enjoy the ride. ;)

Author Bio:

Christina Mandara is a USA TODAY bestselling author and tends to write dark romance with lashings of kinky naughtiness. Her favourite pastime is travelling, and if it involves sun, sea and… sand then it’s all good.
In her spare time she’s usually cuddled up with a good book, exploring the countryside or baking in the kitchen. In fact, she loves her kitchen so much she’s one of few woman who wouldn’t mind being tied to it! Her first and foremost love is writing, however, and more often than not you’ll find her on a laptop spinning tales of romance, erotica or dark, paranormal fantasies.
She’s a big fan of BDSM in all of its glorious forms, and her favourite item in the toy closet (a box simply isn’t big enough) is her riding crop.
