What are people saying about the book?
"One generally thinks a debut author can't produce writing this intense and poetic in its meaning and context, but you are wrong – because they can and Lucian Bane has just proven it to us.
There are a lot of novels being released back to back in this genre and some might say it’s all the same isn't it? Well yes for the most part it is but this one is different. Why? Because it is pure GENIUS that’s why.

With writing so primal in its power you feel transported right into the scenes, like it is your body being touched and taught. Every touch, every emotion will reach inside your soul." - Summers Book Blog

" What I loved about this book is that it tells a fundamentally familiar story in a fresh and inspired way. It took me moments to engage with the two main characters; minutes to flesh out the others. We discover a great deal about their pasts, their fears and their pleasures, but the reveals are done with great subtlety and care. So very cleverly, the author builds layers within the story; of the popular explosion of BDSM; of the dark side; of the motivations to act in a particular way; of the human cost of life's knocks; of two people who connect; of success. All this beautifully presented in a well written story that just begs to have a sequel.

My best advice - get reading
My plea to the author - get writing"


 Dom Wars - Round Two

Lucian Bane and Tara Reese have made it to round two in DOM WARS. The challenges now revolve around trust and while Tara's inhibitions in the world of BDSM are slowly being crushed by Lucian's passion, her deep rooted fears become the real obstacle he must dominate.


What do people say about the book?
"Lucian Bane has done it again! I LOVE this series! It's very real and raw and full of emotion. He paints such a beautiful picture. I love the gorgeous, flawed, deeply grooved characters. They are so complex and I know that I've just scratched the surface of knowing them. I want to know more. Have you ever had a worn out recording that you hear something for the first time, when listening to the song for the hundredth time and it surprises you? That's how I feel about the characters in this series. I feel as though I've just gotten to know them and another layer is peeled back, laid bare for me to feast on. The way the author writes women is spectacular! The author's love and respect for women always shines through, so beautifully in his writing."

"Lucian Bane delivers AGAIN! It has everything you want in a book, from two characters that are perfect within their imperfections. Hot steamy sex scenes. A story that ravels itself about your heart and imaginatin. I may seem repetitive in saying this...BUT THIS SERIES IS A MUST READ"

  Dom Wars Round Three

How about a little teaser ;)

About Lucian Bane?
"I'm an Ineffable Dom. That just means, do yourself a favor and please don't try to describe me or fit me into your categories. Complicated Dom, Intricate Dom, Confounding Dom work too.

I love very much the soft side of a woman. Not just her body, but everything on the inside-- her passion, her intelligence, her convictions, her delicate tenderness. But the one fetish that might be a part of what makes me an Ineffable Dom is that I love her strengths. I love a woman that isn’t afraid to look me in the eyes and say ‘make me’. But I need it to be real, not staged, not pretended. She has to be a fighter at her core the way I’m a Dom at my core. I want an equal that is willing to come hard against me in every sense of the word, exhaust me. I want her so deep inside me that we’re lost in each other. I want her to never doubt that I will always use my power to adore her, protect her, liberate her. I don’t want a woman I can break, or overpower, or exercise my dominance over, I want a woman I can come undone with. I want a woman I can jump off the cliff with into that abyss of holy hell, this is beyond me, beyond my control. The greatest fear of most people is losing themselves or unravelling their roots. My greatest fear is not finding a woman I can take that plunge with. Yes, it’s a huge risk. That’s the yin and the yang of it. And while the risk titillates my Dom, it’s the ineffable fruit of that risk that moves him. He knows he has to have it. He knows he’s supposed to have. And he’s prepared to dominate for it.

I think there are many men like myself, and I hope my writing will be a map for them. A map for women as well, to let them know Doms like this exist. I’d like to call them out of the woodwork. Help men join with their natural inner Doms in a way that I think is one of the most fulfilling experiences there are. I want to challenge them all to go for the complete power exchange with a woman, but don’t be a coward and not give the same that they demand or expect. And consider that when you give one hundred percent of yourself to a person, there is no more of you to give away. You now belong to them the way they belong to you.

Inner Doms are dogs that need a master to train them. I once bowed to my Dom's reckless and tireless desires, but when I gained control, he bowed to my will. The transformation made me into what I am today. What many would call an Ineffable Dom. But its equal term in the Vanilla world, in my opinion, is a real man."
