Temper: Deference

no. 1, Temper

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Short-tempered Lana Martin is a workaholic consultant based in Tokyo. Not one to turn down a challenge, she accepts the indecent proposal of her abrasive martial arts instructor to become his submissive in a dynamic that tests her resilience. Spreading like wildfire, their affair lights up another blaze, this time between Lana and Honda’s wife, the sophisticated socialite Yuki.

Fearless, Lana embraces what her two masters offer her. Yet, unbeknown to her, their powerful desire rouses dark powers who have waited for decades to claim their prizes. Lana must confront the enemy eating her from within, while pulling back Honda from the edge of madness. Yuki’s unwavering strength will keep them sane - but for how long?

A two-edged sword, the trio’s fiery passion will either destroy them or be the key to their salvation. 

TEMPER is a paranormal romance featuring a trio which begins as a threesome and evolves into a polyamorous family over the story. If you enjoy strong bisexual female leads handling a brooding & domineering man who wants to teach them a couple of things about self-control while facing life or death stakes, with a dash of martial arts and an emotional rollercoaster that will wreck you, you'll want to read this one! The paranormal aspects are rooted in Japanese lore. Heat level is scorching hot!

*** Goodreads reviews ***
"Ms Mina has crafted a book that takes you right into Japan. Not only is the story awesome, but the attention to detail, the explanation of Japanese culture and the reality of life there has your feeling like you were THERE!
So many stories are either written in the western world for the western world or in the eastern world for the eastern world. This book is set in the eastern world but written for both.
Mina has gifted us with a tale that draws you in and holds you there and the heat? Make sure you have a glass of water and some decent alone time because you are not going to want to put this down!
Best book hangover, ever!"

"Lila Mina is for me one of the most talented woman’s fictions writers I have ever come across.

The Temper Series is like no other I have read. Each book took me places no book has ever and reignited more than just my love for the written word and books. The exploration of Japan - cultural, culinary, its people and places are so immersive I felt as if I had been on a trip. Getting to meet Lana, Honda and Yuki was a pleasure, they became close friends along their road, it was an honour to follow them. I felt all their emotions and experiences so deeply I would be left breathless and tired after chapters but just like Lana eager for more - Lila made sure of that with her deliciously enthralling writing. Take any adult novel you have ever read, add real human emotion and believable character development, seamlessly flowing plots and sex scenes to leave any kinkster hot under the collar and you get Temper. It’s a series with a soul. Lila will leave you weeping over raging boner, she will make you want to never read her work again because it’s all too intense while simultaneously thinking about begging her for more chapters because you just have to know. She is a filthy genius and I hope you will bask in her work too.

Do not settle for less than this level of filth if you love adult novels."
