About Kallypso Masters

USA Today bestselling author Kallypso Masters writes emotional, realistic Romance novels with dominant men and the women who bring them to their knees. She also has brought many readers to their knees--having them experience the stories right along with her characters in the Rescue Me saga. Kally knows that Happily Ever After takes maintenance, so her couples don't solve all their problems and disappear at "the end" of their Romance, but will continue to work on real problems in their relationships in later books. Kally also loves showing how there is never anyone so wounded that he or she can't find true love with that person who is perfect for them. Readers often write to tell her how the books have changed their lives or their perceptions of what matters in life.

Kally has been writing full-time since May 2011, having quit her "day job" the month before to pursue a full-time writing career (her long-time dream). Masters at Arms was her debut novel, published in August 2011.

Kally lives in rural Kentucky and has been married for over 30 years to the man who provided her own Happily Ever After. They have two adult children, one adorable grandson, and a rescued dog and cat.

Kally enjoys meeting readers at national romance-novel conventions, book signings, and informal gatherings (restaurants, airports, bookstores, wherever!), as well as in online groups (including Facebook's "The Rescue Me Series Open Discussion" secret group--to join, send a friend request to "Karla Paxton" on Facebook; Kally also visits the Fetlife "Rescue Me! Series Discussion Group" regularly). Watch for her live online chats, as well. She hopes to meet you in her future travels! If you meet her face to face, be sure to ask for her a "Kally's friend" button (an awesome incentive ONLY for people she has met face-to-face; sorry, but no exceptions. She'll keep making more buttons as long as she keeps meeting new people)!

The Rescue Me Saga should be read in order. The reading order to date:

MASTERS AT ARMS & NOBODY'S ANGEL (Book 1--updated March 2014 with BONUS material)

Review by: Katy Beth McKee on June 08, 2013 :
Savi has been on her own she she left her father's house of horrors after being with Damion. The love for her daughter and the memory of the special day have kept her going. But now her peace has been shatter has her father tries to regain control of her and her daughter. She runs to the one person she trusts to help her. She gains not one person but a whole new family that is dedicated to keeping her safe and seeing her heal in more ways than one. Things are touch and go for a while and both Damion and Savi need to find healing and acceptance to move on together. I loved seeing their strength. I appreciated that although Savi was down she was not out. The book shows that she has her own measure of strength and that being with Damion as well as her new family multiplies it instead of diminishes it. Each book in this series brings you deeper into the lives of these special people.

A very emotional read but loved e Rey minute of it. Kallypso Masters writes superb stories with deep meaning and real life intertwined in them. The characters have flaws that we all have so they are more realistic than most love stories. Can't wait for more from Kally!

A great novel, from a great series of novels. The way the BDSM lifestyle is portrayed is really captivating, you do not have the feeling you are watching porn, you get a better understanding why some people opt for it. Really amazing ! I am looking forward to the next book.

Ms Masters has written an excellent addition to her Master at Arms series. Her talent is amazing as she weaved past characters and story lines within Perfect that allowed me to remember their situations. Now I will re-read and pick up all the details I might have missed in my fast first read.
Also, a reader that has not read the previous stories can read Perfect and not be lost or wonder who or what is references.

The best is to start at the beginning and enjoy all the stories and I am anxious for the end of the year as we are promised? another edition to the Masters series.

Where to begin:

a. this story was well worth the wait, I know it was an emotional one for Kally and that shines through in the writing.

b. a wonderful telling of the characters and the struggles they go through to get from a point of feeling "broken" to their path to healing. It is told in a supportive and engaging way not glossing over topics that people might be upset by.

c. I've read the book twice already and am truly looking forward to the other volumes in this series, the end left me salivating for Luke and Cassie's story as well as how Damo and Savi, and Carla and Adam and everyone else fair as life goes on.

I would definitely recommend this series, over and over again and already have!

These books are emotional and deep. I love the emotional path they take you on each and every time. I have been around military men my entire life and I love that these involve men I could be sitting next to in the bank line. I love the healing and understanding that takes places in these lives and it is nice to not feel alone when I identify with a lot of what these girls have gone through.

Thank you so much for the awesome job you do on writing real emotions about real people.

You rock!

I read all the books in the Rescue Me series and from the very beginning after reading Master at Arms couldn't wait for this book to come out. I loved it from beginning to end and will read it again and again I'm sure. I enjoy the most the emotions the writer invoked in me while reading the book. It was so detailed I felt as if I was there through it. I cannot wait for the next book with that touched on Marc again. Will suggest all my friends read this series and this book in particular.

Review by: Rebekah Wyer on Sep. 20, 2012 :
Kallypso Masters tackles difficult subject matter head-on. Rather than glossing over PTSD and abuse issues and making the characters have miraculous recoveries, Kallypso shows the difficulties people who suffer from these problems have in dealing with everyday life. Triggers can occur at any time (words, smells, music, situations) and the journey to healing is long and complicated. The memories can never be erased but the survivor's "perception" can be changed from negative to positive.

Damian and Savi both have many issues to work through and by helping each other they strengthen their relationship and both regain control over their lives.

Nobody's Perfect shows how the BDSM community comes together to protect and heal their own.

Keep a box of kleenex handy.

Well done Kally!

Review by: lisa williams on Sep. 20, 2012 :
This story was well worth the wait! Kallypso's ability to tie the reader to the characters is so powerful! You laugh, cry and struggle with them. This book will be hard for many to read that have experience with abuse or PTSD, but in the end everyone can identify with the struggle of coping and surviving the worst that is sometimes thrown at us.

I love this series, but please read in order. Kallypso writes a series, that as in life isn't contained in one book. The characters continue to play important roles in each story and not just a quick visit.

I, as well, many others have been anxiously anticipating this new book in the Rescue Me series. It was well worth the wait. It showed that there are more ways to heal the hurts life sends you and many people who can help you do so in unexpected ways. In addition, family does not have to be related by blood alone but also by sharing life’s experiences good and bad. I am looking forward to the rest of the series as each book comes out. I am hoping that all the characters in the series have their own peaceful happy new beginning with an understanding partner.

A book that was well worth the wait. Wonderful imagery - I could see the story in my head and feel it in my heart.

I love the world of Masters at Arms. To find that one who will protect, cherish and dominate you but still allow you to be you.

I look forward to more Doms/Dommes but Master Adam is still THE ONE!

The healing of Savannah Gentry

This book takes us through Savannah's life from 8-19. Then onto Savi Baker's life 19-27. And then finally back to Savannah's life.

Savannah lived through the most horrid things from 8-19 from her sick and perverted father and his business associate, Lyle. The only bright light during that time was her one night with Damián Orlando. After that wonderful night in her otherwise nightmare of a world she was gifted with a child. The pregnancy gave her the strength to run away from her father. She ended up in a church where a priest and a wonderful woman took her under there wings and Savi Baker was born.

Savi Baker had gone to school and had become a social worker who worked with young abuse victims. Without any explanation she lost her job and was wondering how she was going to support herself and her daughter Mari. She didnt know at the time that her father was behind her losing her job and that he had sent Lyle to bring her and her daughter back to him. Savi manages to escape and goes to the only person she can think of to protect her, Damian.

Damian as also never forgotten Savannah since that night eight years ago. He had no idea what hell had delivered her back to but since that night he had also been through his own hell and was still fighting both PTSD and shame over his disability. When Savannah show up as his door beaten and bruised with her daughter he doesn't know what to think. But within a short amount of time he finds out Mari is his.

Damian vows to protect them both with his life but realizes there is more to Savi's past than he ever knew. Savi's flashbacks are horrid and he realizes she doesn't trust men and wants nothing to do with anyone ever touching her.

From here the journey to Savi's healing begins. Everyone from Adam and Carla to Marc and Grant rally to help Savi become Savannah again. The scenes in the Club between Damian and Savi were so touching in how he was able to bring out all of Savi's demon's front and center so they could be dealt with.

There is justice for Savannah in this book which was long over due in her life. From the moment we saw Damien and Savannah all those years ago we knew they were meant to be together and was fantastic to finally get to read there journey to that place.

Marc and Angelina are still going through a rough patch in their relationship that is not concluded in this book.

Adam and Karla are doing well in there relationship as they prepare for the birth of there first child.

And the cliffhanger between Luke and Cassie - this had to be one of the cruelest things in the book :)

This book was so worth the wait. Kally has done another exception job of writing heartfelt characters that you love.

Wow...just WOW Kally! What an emotional and powerful ride. Well worth the wait - and a sleepless night (after downloading minutes after midnight of the release) fueled by your beautiful words and three pots of strong coffee. I'm too emotionally and physically exhausted to praise you with anything more eloquent right BRAVO!
