Authors Angels Presents: Strict Machine by Justus Roux Tour & Give Away

STRICT MACHINE blurb:

Salome was tricked by the man she loved most in this world. Lucian said he was her Master and that he loved her. Yet, he abandoned her here with these strange men. Her life quickly became a living hell. One in which she thought she never escape until a man named Master Darius saved her from these slavers. He was going to hunt down Lucian and she wanted to be there when he caught him.

Darius wasn’t too happy when Salome wanted to be his submissive after he saved her from those slavers. He couldn’t refuse Xanthos’ request to train Salome. They had to keep her from running back to Lucian. Darius knew Salome wouldn’t fit into his home, his submissives were trained to break up slave rings and she was nowhere near tough enough to do this. He figured he would keep her until he caught Lucian then he would send her to Master Drake. She would certainly fit in with Drake’s pampered pets.

Salome finds herself falling in love with Master Darius despite the fact that he comes across to everyone as a strict machine. She knows underneath his frigid façade there is a Master beyond all others. But will she have the strength to uncover it, especially after what Lucian has put her through.

Interview With Justus Roux:

1.Justus, I am a huge fan, I have read all of your work. Can you tell us what drives you to write in the genre that you do? and or would you ever like to try a different genre?

Hello, I’m thrilled to hear that you are a fan 🙂 it is always wonderful to hear someone is enjoying my work.

I love writing BDSM romance. This kind of lifestyle has always appealed to me. I love the complexity of this kind of relationship. And I always enjoy writing in the erotic romance genre. I like the freedom of it.

I would like to write in a different genre just for the challenge of it.

2.As someone who has read your earlier work, as well as your newer work. I can see the growth in your books. Do you see it as well?

Most definitely I have seen growth in my work. The more I write the better I get. I always want to improve and hone my craft.

3.Who is your most favorite character in a book and why?

My all-time favorite character is Master Drake. He was the first character that I fully developed. Plus, he was the first Master in the Master Series, so he will always have a special place in my heart.

4.What are 5 items you never leave home without.

My cellphone, essential touch up makeup, breath freshener, my kindle, perfume

Now for the important question…

5. Dark or Milk Chocolate?

Dark chocolate.

Thank You Ms. Roux for a fun Interview, I can’t wait for the next Masters book.

Enjoy this Excerpt:

Chapter One

The bars of the cage were cool to the touch. The cement floor in which the cage was bolted onto was hard and unwelcoming. The air reeked of urine, sweat and sex. And what was worse there was no light in this room most of the time, though at times this was welcoming, the light only served to illuminate this dank place. This was Salome’s reality for the last four months. Her truth, her hell, it threatened to rob her of her mind, her very soul. Her only crime that damned her to this place was that she chose to love the wrong man.

At times she could hear soft weeping. This saddened her, knowing that other women shared her fate.

Lucian led her to this place, and like a fool she followed. She can still see Lucian’s smile in her thoughts. He was so handsome, so charming…God she was a fool. He let those other men use her roughly and when he grew tired of it he simply left her here. He didn’t say goodbye or give any explanation on why he did this to her. The smelly older male of the bunch locked her in this damn cage over a week ago. He said she needed to be housebroken. And when she inquired about Lucian the older male only said that she belong to this house now.

Her tears would not come, though she disparately needed to cry. She huddled in a corner of the small cage trying to warm herself. The ratty dress they had made her wear offered no warmth and barely covered her. She looked at the two dog bowls that were placed in her cage. The repugnant old man took so much pleasure in treating her like a dog. The only time she was let out was twice a day to use the bathroom.

Salome closed her eyes and prayed for release from this abyss. She prayed that someone would save her and the others or that one of these monsters would hurry up and take her life. One way or another she wanted to be free of this hell.

Deb’s Review:

Justus Roux has done it again, with this newly released hit, Strict Machine. Is a BDSM not for the faint of hearts? This story packs power that will have you reading from cover to cover. I just could not put it down.

There are many elements to Master Darius, he scared me more than the bad guys did. *grins* His rule is unconditional. I wanted to love him as much as his submissive did. He has a heart believe it or not, with issues of his own. He puts his submissive needs first. So what is a Master to do when he wants a home and a family?

Salome is a true mystery to me in the way she adapted so fast after having such a traumatic experience. It intrigued me so much I Goggled on it a bit, it did in helping me understand her role better. Her terror and her heart came leaping of the pages. I get chills when reading as she recounted what happened, her character provides a bit of softness and vulnerability to an intense story line.

Second level characters were interesting and added a nice buffer for the plotline as well as aided the hero and heroine nicely. Ms. Roux there is a scene at the end of this book between Master Drake and Jessica, I felt there was something more coming, am I correct in thinking this? It felt as a cliff hanger of sorts.

I enjoyed Strict Machine; it has so many facets to it, Love, Bravery, Honor, Passion, and Danger. Strict Machine by Justus Roux is a must have for anyone’s BDSM library, just remember, the story is intense.
