Description from the publisher:
Cross over the bridge with Calico—into the hustle and bustle of Manhattan and her past. By viewing where she began with new eyes, she’ll be one step closer to her happily ever after.
From the secret told under the lights of the Brooklyn Bridge, to her old stomping ground in Midtown—Calico will see New York like she never has before.

The Bishop’s firm hand and strict old school style will teach her lessons once more. Together they will journey beneath the cold city and to the star strewn heights—for a deep and aerial view of Calico’s past, present and future.

Only Markus knew how much was left for her to learn and only the Bishop’s tactics could make everything fall into place.

Calico’s journey is almost complete and this is the hardest and most fulfilling lesson yet!


ALWAYS YOUR MASTER is the third book in the Not Even Death series.  They definitely must be read in order.

I absolutely could not put this down and finished it in one day, immediately after and on the same day as STILL YOUR MASTER!

To review:  after reading the first book, I quipped that my favorite character wasn’t even there.  Marcus, Calico’s husband and Master, may have been parted from her by death, but he has proven his love is far-reaching and eternal.  He has left letters, gifts, and friends to guide his slave to her future happiness. 

The first Master to assist was Derrick who taught Calico that she would need to live, love, and serve again in order to be fulfilled as a slave. 

Next was Blaze, rock-star and a personal fantasy for Calico, to encourage her to open her wings.  It is in trusting that she will be able to fly again.
This time, Marcus has returned her to the tutelage of the Bishop, the man whom Marcus first entrusted her to when he took her as his slave.  The Bishop runs an elite school for submissives and now he has Carissa as a returning student.  Together, they explore her past as a NYC street rat, her present as a lost slave, and her future as fulfilled slave once again.

The gift of a separate love names from each man continues.  Marcus called her Calico and Kitten instead of Carissa, Derrick called her Cali.   Blaze named her Kitty.  Now, the Bishop calls her Pet.  Even her old friend, Sheridan has special name for Carissa.  He calls her Kitty-Cat or Callie-Kat.

I’m told that the Bishop is the favorite character for many readers, especially those who are part of the scene and therefore should know best.  I didn’t particularly like him.  He scared me.  I can’t really say why or how, but he scared me.  Maybe it was because of the past lessons she had under him, as some of them are beyond boundaries I would set.  Maybe it’s because I don’t truly understand the difference between submissive and slave.  Either way, for Carissa, he is an important step in this path to her new discovery of herself and her preparation for her future – whatever that future may ultimately be.

I am looking forward to the next book in this series, FOREVER YOUR MASTER!
