Reader Poll – Who is YOUR Romantic Hero?

gerard_butler_05Who you find deliciously heroic because they’re downright sexy, even if they’re bone chilling terror on two legs!  I have a few in this poll but now we’re changing it up for a write in!  You can also tell where my reading tastes have been over the years.  These names were randomly chosen so they probably don’t represent a wide spectrum, hence the write in option, but hey this is new!

So, tell me, readers, who IS your favorite?

The #book that just won’t die has been reduced in price!

If you buy ten copies maybe it’ll die?  LOL! Seriously, we redid the cover for Mistress Kitty and Trent a little while back but I realized again, the price 545746_447297821947469_213044086_nwas too high.  Not to say it’s not worth what we want, but we just know our readers like deals and when you can get a high quality female dominant series of tales featuring a sexy, yet submissive male, willing to please his Mistress’s every whim, why wouldn’t  you?

If you’ll remember, this is the book that had several cover incarnations, including a missed one because the artist died while trying to catch all the pokemon.  Something about a crazy Soviet was involved too.

Anyway, the stories were written in attempt to give an accurate portrayal of one aspect of the D/s lifestyle.  It can be a beautiful pain, pushing the human body, letting someone else have control, especially when traditional roles are reversed.  Trent, a powerful male in the regular world, and Mistress Kitty, equally powerful in her career, have to come to terms if they’re going to be together.  In a rare look at the Female Dominant perspective, these stories were written in the early days of my career.

#Reduced #Price on #BDSM #Erotica – Gift of Her Submission

That’s, right, we dropped the price to $2.99 on my best selling tale of three submissives with their one Dominant.  A little back story might help the sale ;)    Gift ofHer Submission

Few years ago (before the 50 Shades trend) my publisher asked me to write a male dom/female submissive story.  Turns out I had inspiration from three very dear loved ones at the time.  The first story, based on someone who is an aspiring writer (or would be if she didn’t get lost in the jungles of New Mexico trying to deliver coke to  crazy Soviets) and deep down submissive, with a yearning for respect from a certain dominating type.  In Casey’s story, she was given just that, the chance to step into a world where she might fit better, or leave it, no harm done.

The second story deals again with another loved one, who would be here today except she made millions selling glass dildoes to sex starved women in the Middle part of the Eastern world.   Needless to say, before she discovered this talent, she struggled with complex issues only women can understand. Needing a reinforcement of her attractiveness, her sensuality, Ronan aimed to remind her of her inner beauty as well as her outer sexiness.

The last story deals with a third and final loved one, who, yup, you guessed it, disappeared. She tried to bury the bottle but it turns out when you’re only 152.2 centimeters and the bottle you’re trying to bury is full of liquor and weighs 1.75 liters, it becomes difficult to lift, and therefore falls on you before you even get a drop into you.  Anyhoo, in the story, this submissive needed to see that pain wasn’t the answer to see true love, but that it could be an accompaniment to other sensual pleasures, softer ones.  Hard control was fine, but topping from the bottom would not get her anything but unsatisfied over time and build resentment.

Ronan couldn’t have that, these women all meant something to his heart, and would one day get the chance to show him.  But first, he needed the Gift of their Submission…

Guest Post – Kayelle Allen – Keeper of My Pleasure

komp200x329Guest Post by the talented Kayelle Allen

Why did I write a male submission story? It’s a genre I enjoy reading but can never find. My character, Koo Ayakura, is no weakling. He plays sports. He’s a college graduate. He can handle anything his mistress throws his way, with grace and with strength. There is nothing weak about a submissive partner. The sub must be able to trust the dominant, and that is not an easy thing to do. A good D/s relationship might be one of the hardest things to maintain. It requires constant adjustment, and the willingness to change. There must be trust between the partners, and that only comes after proving worth, because trust without reason for it is nothing more than hope.

Keeper of My Pleasure
By Kayelle Allen

Rai trusts Koo to submit. To keep him, she must trust her heart.

A Romantica® BDSM erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave

This book is in the Taboo line — one of the Ellora’s Cave Quickies

 

A recent college graduate, Koo hires Rai as his attorney after thieves total his car and then dare to sue him. She wins, and takes him out to celebrate. Dinner leads to the hottest sex in his life, and a long-term relationship as her submissive. He adores the way she makes him feel, and the way she makes him burn. He longs to show her he has more to offer. He has a heart, and it’s hers, if only she’ll let him give it.

A successful attorney in her late thirties, Rai has a penchant for handsome young men with long hair. Koo, her newest client, becomes more than her usual boy toy. He likes being tied up and whipped, and he yields the way she’d always dreamed. But he has a future ahead of him, and she’s a jaded lawyer. He wants sex, not love. Right? He wouldn’t stay with her forever. She trusts him to submit. To keep Koo, Rai is going to have trust her heart.

 

Inside Scoop: Our hero willingly submits to his Dom lady love and all her toys in their BDSM play, including whips and bindings and more.

Surrender to Love – a short blog update

Livia’s guest post on Heather Long’s blog gave us some insight into the mind of the female dominant, basically from a lessons’ learned perspective and was  a lot of fun to see, wasn’t it?  I hope I’ve converted a few new readers!  You’re going to be seeing a lot more of Livia, Bruce, Siddella and others from my Decadent books online as we start off an unofficial blog tour over the coming months.

I’m looking forward to sharing with you all!

Dungeon time! Frolicon Scene Report

Dark Sensualities and Primal InstinctsBack from Frolicon but still in Georgia!  I’m here for another day and a half to de-stress from such an exciting, emotionally exhausting (in a good way) liberating convention.  Imagine having several hundred of your closest, kinkiest friends around who are bi, gay, straight, poly, cis(wtf is cis) etc and just having a LOT of fun we couldn’t have otherwise.

The joke for me is this:

Discover on Thursday that writers track panels are in room 622.  the same room as the Atlanta Swingers party that night…so we start off with hilarity only to realize that we’re spending two whole days in this room.  And in between at night, the Dark Room Party.

Watch where you sit LOL!

Hanging with author Shakir Rashaan was a blast as always.  The 50 Shades panel was awesome in that someone brought us drinks, so we got our drink on while shit talking the book, giving out the good points and what that author has done for us as erotica authors.  We got to celebrate Shakir’s new contract with Zane, and Simon and Schuster, which was awesome.  My news with Red Sage, talk contracts, writing tips, publishing tips, Male POV, chop it up writer style basically.

There was cigar herfing involved.  I’d say about 50 or so cigar smokers gathering on the deck to partake in what the brothers of the leaf call Herfing.

Talk of JR Ward’s Lover at Last book release happened, in relation to NY not taking on the GLBT or M/M market, talk of WriteSEX happened, pimping yet again the ability to make money in erotica if you’re smart about your business plan and author platform.

I can’t mention the sexy parties, but let’s just say, they were sex!

Bound After Midnight Cover – Erotic Paranormal BDSM Romancae

1boundaftermidnight1600x2400Finally, we wait no more!  The long awaited anthology from Sizzler Editions authors Margie Church, Bonni Sansom and me, “Bound After Midnight” has a a cover AND a release date!

Three tales of paranormal romance and bondage:

In my story Finding Eternity -

In search of his destiny, Solan is wounded by his opponent and left for dead.  Rescue in the form of a sensual vampire who drags him back to her castle and heals him.  Instant sexual attraction complicates things as Solan’s destiny unfolds before his eyes and he is faced with either learning true mastery, including owning the woman he’s growing to love, or watching her die before his eyes.

Katherine’s life has been unfulfilling until she feels the pull of her life mate slipping away.  Upon rescue, she realizes what sustains her is his love, not blood.  Except his uncertainties prevent him from fulfilling the role of Master to her slave.

Will Solan realize his true destiny is with Katherine or will she die of a broken heart?

Bonni Sansom brings us Hunter’s Bounty –

Being a Vampire bounty hunter had its perks. Lana Drake knew this all too well. But meeting her new client, Devon Brody awakens a bloodlust that brought out the submissive in her.

After Devon’s sister Zara is kidnapped, Devon hires Lana Drake, vampire bounty hunter to find her, only to negotiate payment with his blood.  After the first feeding, he quickly realizes her submissive nature pairs well with his Dominant side.

What starts off as passing time in a no holds barred sexual D/s relationship quickly progresses to something Lana can’t handle, until Devon reveals his true nature when he saves her from the vampire clan that kidnapped his sister.  Can Devon and Lana resolve their feelings for each other?

Margie Church leaves us with a taste of Cream On The Crop -

After growing up in politics, Neha Thompson craves privacy. Her new farm seems the perfect place to create a new life, until peculiar events bring the sheriff to her door.

Jamaal Cooper’s feelings about black rights angered some of the locals during the 1948 Freedom Train movement. His body was found on Neha’s farm, and his murder remains unsolved. For 65 years, his restless spirit has harassed the property owners, driving them away one by one. Neha is next.

When Jamaal uncovers Neha’s most secret desires, she’s faced with a choice to submit to this ghostly Master or be driven away like the others.

Now, for the release date:  February 21st!  Look out for this awesome anthology!
