Guest Post & Giveaway ~*~ Somebody's Angel by Kallypso Masters

-5 Little-Known Facts about Marc D’Alessio

1. While Marc isn't a man who flaunts his wealth (and prefers to live within his own means, which is more modest than his parents’ lifestyle), he does love his car. But even that isn’t new, although it is flashy—a vintage cherry-red Porsche 911 Carrera he sometimes calls “Baby.”

2. Marc's favorite dessert is homemade cannoli with powdered sugar sprinkled on it (and if Angelina makes them, they might even be better than sex to him).

3. The D'Alessio family has been very successful in their chosen business of running a ski resort, but Marc decided to go his own way (as usual). He earned his college degree in recreation and leisure studies and preferred the outdoor activities at the resort more so than running the business or being a “suit” (or even IN a suit!).

4. Marc introduced Damián to the world of kink during a trip off-base (way off base) before their 2004 deployment to Iraq. This experience opened Damián's eyes and mind to the world of BDSM and helped correct his previous misconceptions, but also showed that Marc is very much only involved in surface-level kink. Women are a smorgasbord he enjoys immensely, but he’ll never let one inside his heart—especially not an ITALIAN one!

5. Despite many years in the lifestyle, Marc still doubts his authenticity as a Dom, in part because of his beginnings in the lifestyle. At age 17, he was “recruited” by a rich, bored guest at his family’s resort and taught the skills to become “Master Marco.” In Somebody’s Angel (to be uploaded Dec. 22 to Amazon, B&N Nook, and ARe—available sometime on Dec. 23), he’ll share about that and other experiences in his past.

When Marc d’Alessio first rescued the curvaceous and spirited Italian Angelina Giardano at the Masters at Arms Club, he never expected her to turn his safe controlled life upside down and pull at his long-broken heartstrings. Months later the intense fire of their attraction still rages but something holds him back from committing to her completely. Worse, secrets and memories from his past join forces to further complicate his relationships with family, friends, and his beautiful Angel.

Angelina cannot give all of herself to someone who hides himself from her. She loves Marc, the BDSM world he brought her into, and the way their bodies respond to one another but she needs more. Though she destroyed the wolf mask he once wore, only he can remove the mask he dons daily to hide his emotions. In a desperate attempt to break through his defenses and reclaim her connection to the man she loves, she attempts a full frontal assault that sends him into a fast retreat, leaving her nobody’s angel once again.

Marc finds that running to the mountains no longer gives him solace but instead leaves him empty and alone. Angelina is the one woman worth the risk of opening his heart. Will he risk everything to become the man she deserves and the man he wants to be?

Free and Almost Free Books Available in the Rescue Me Series

For those new to this series who want a free glimpse into the Rescue Me world, you can get started with the FREE introduction, Masters at Arms. This book introduces six characters who will go on to have happily ever after Romances shared about them. (Adam & Karla, Damián & Savannah, Marc, and in a small part here but with more to come later, Grant.)

But because I won’t want you to stop there, I’ve combined the first two books into one volume to make it easier. You get the first TWO books in the series—Masters at Arms & Nobody’s Angel—for only 99 cents! (Saves $3 off the previously published single, Nobody’s Angel. Nobody’s Angel introduces you to Angelina and shows her exploration into the world of BDSM. But Marc remained so closed off still in this book, I needed to give him time. He’ll reveal himself in the new release Somebody’s Angel, due out by Christmas.

Author Bio ~
Kallypso Masters writes emotional, realistic Romance novels with dominant males (for the most part) and the strong women who can 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 series. 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 in the series.

Kally has been writing full-time since May 2011 and Somebody’s Angel is her fifth book in the series, preceded by Masters at Arms & Nobody’s Angel (#1 and #2), Nobody’s Hero (#3); and Nobody’s Perfect (#4).

Kally lives in rural Kentucky and has been married for 30-1/2 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 Montague ( on Facebook. For kinkier conversation, Kally also invites you to Fetlife’s “Rescue Me! Series Discussion Group.” She also does live online chats. She hopes to meet you in her future travels!
