From TikTok sensation Sierra Simone comes the first in the Lyonesse series, a spin-off of her bestselling New Camelot books.

Tristan Thomas is lost.

After leaving the Army, the young former soldier is in limbo. Until, that is, he’s hired by Mark Trevena, the owner of Lyonesse—DC’s ultra-secret club—to be Mark’s new bodyguard. He’s drawn into Mark’s dark, seductive world of power and desire, and slowly drawn to Mark himself, even though Mark is everything Tristan knows he shouldn’t want: cruel and wicked and shamelessly amoral.

But protecting Mark isn’t Tristan’s only duty: soon, Mark asks him to guard his soon-to-be bride as she travels home from Ireland on Mark’s yacht. Tristan is jealous—and hurt to learn that the object of his obsession is engaged—but the soldier in him is made to obey orders, and he goes to fetch Mark’s bride for him.

Isolde Laurence is nothing like Tristan expected, however. Young, quiet, and sharp, she’s being pushed into this marriage by her family, and as the two travel back to America, Tristan finds himself fascinated with Isolde and the glimpses he gets of the lonely but determined woman behind her reserve. And the fascination is mutual: one night, while sailing under the cold stars, they share a searing kiss.

From there, it’s a fast fall into the forbidden.

But in Mark Trevena’s world, the fall is only the beginning…

The Lyonesse trilogy is a queer, kinky contemporary retelling of the legend of Tristan and Isolde, set in the same world as the New Camelot series. Readers will not have to read New Camelot to enjoy Lyonesse, although readers who enjoyed New Camelot will find all the things they loved about the trilogy here: MMF ménage, plenty of the angsty forbidden, and a sweeping retelling of a familiar story.

Tristan + Mark + Isolde

Mark is a former CIA agent who now owns a very exclusive and elite private club in Washington. You don't pay a member fee, you pay in information.
Tristan is the son of the new husband of Mark's oldest sister.
And now he's also his step-uncle's new personal bodyguard.
And he's very interested in that body. Preferably naked.
But Mark is not sure if Tristan is ready for what that would mean.
Being HIS. In all the ways he would need him to be his.
But Tristan is still very interested.
Until he finds out that Mark is engaged. To a girl!


If you've read the free prequel novella you already know a bit more about Mark and his future wife and the whys and hows.
But this first full-length book in the series is all about Tristan. It's all his POV. How he comes to work as Mark's personal bodyguard.
About how he has been in the military forever and he's been through a lot. So being Marks sub is not scaring him away like Mark thinks it does or should.
But they can never be together, right? Not really. Not when Mark is getting married soon. Or can they?
We'll find out soon. Well, maybe not soon-soon - because we get three books - LOL!

I really enjoyed reading this book and I can't wait to see where the next two books will take us with those three!

Tiny PS. I'm not a huge fan of the kinky BDSMy submissive thing. But it didn't bother me too much here.
It's all very kinky and sexy but there's so much more in this book too. Funny moments. Heartbreaking moments. Exciting and suspensy moments.

Great book! Great start for this new series!

SALT KISS was a very sexy and slightly secret-agenty start to this new trilogy! I loved it!!
Run to your nearest book dealer for your own Tristan, Mark and Isolde!

Free Prologue Novella
The Lyonesse Series is a spin-off from this:


Sierra is a voracious reader of all things including the smuttiest smut, young adult, piles of non-fiction for research, and everything Bill Bryson (especially on audio).

She loves writing the dirtiest things that she can think of, King Arthur, sparkling water, Tarot, coffee, leggings, and learning new words daily.

Her previous jobs have included firing ceramics, teaching living history lessons in one-room school house in full, 1908-approved school marm attire, and working as a librarian for several years—not in that order

She lives in the Kansas City area with her hot cop husband, two children, and two giant dogs. (And two cats, but they're so naughty we don't talk about them.)

The social media she cares about the most are Spotify and Instagram. Following her in those places is a true love language, indeed.

Sierra is represented by Rebecca Friedman of RF Literary; foreign rights are handled by Bookcase Literary.
