Recommended Reads: Alchemy XII by Tamsin Flowers

If you’re a longtime reader of my blog or follow me on twitter, you know that I’m a huge fan of Tamsin Flowers. Last year I was lucky enough to beta read her Alchemy XII series, and we became fast friends as well.

Alchemy XII follows Olivia as she trains as a submissive in the exclusive world of Alchemy, a BDSM club for the super wealthy. Her Dom is the British bad boy Harry. Together, they have a passionate, although often tempestuous relationship. Then Olivia breaks Harry’s cardinal rule-she falls for him. What should she do? Where will their relationship take them?

The series begins with the short “New Year’s Eve” told from Harry’s point of view, and then in monthly diary entries written by Olivia.

What makes Harry compelling is that he’s not the ALL POWERFUL SERIOUS YET MAGICAL DOM WHO KNOWS ALL WITHOUT YOU SAYING A WORD that I find so tiresome.  He is a complex character with more going on in his life than just topping.

Harry has a good friend and mentor in Belladonna, who won’t hesitate to take him down a peg or two.  Their body language and snappy banter show that they have a history in bed and out of it.  I can’t wait to see more of Belladonna, especially once she takes Olivia’s measure.

–my review of New Year’s Eve

In what was a horrible year for me, health-wise, I didn’t read much erotica. However, my day was always a little brighter when I received the next chapter of Alchemy from Tamsin and I eagerly looked forward to it.

If you are the type of person who waits until a series is finished so you don’t have to wait to watch it unfold slowly, now is the time to go buy Alchemy XII. Start with New Year’s Eve, move on to January and so forth through the conclusion (sad–I want more!) in the December novella. Each month Tamsin explores another kink, so it’s always a new, fresh approach to sex.

BDSM romance fans should absolutely go and buy today.

  1. Oh you! You’re absolutely the best, Delilah – thank you so, so much! I count myself extraordinarily lucky to have had you as a beta reader for Alchemy, and even luckier still to be able to count you as a friend. xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxxo
