Pre-order Blitz: In Your Corner by Sarah Castille (@sarah_castille)


In Your CornerBLURB:

“You have to go. I won’t be able to control myself. I’ve wanted you so bad for so long and after I’ve been in the cage…I can’t think straight.” He gives a guttural groan and his fist clenches on my hip.

Primitive. Primal. His need speaks to me. I tighten my grip on his neck and rock up to kiss him. He takes over. His kiss is hard and demanding.

“Mine.” His voice is raw, savage and for a moment I truly believe he may lose control.

Finding the Selkie in Chincoteague, Guest Blog by Nara Malone (@nara_malone)

pic_1_ocean

I had the publisher’s approval for Make Me Wet, a selkie (a mythical being that shifts shape between seal and human form) tale, before I wrote the first word. I had the research done, the plot down, the characters drawn. I had everything but the words. And I fought to find them for a couple of months before admitting to myself that something was missing. In this story setting was a character and that character was proving particularly hard to connect with.

New Release: Random Acts of Fantasy by Julia Kent

Random Acts Of FantasyDescription:

From New York Times bestselling author Julia Kent comes the third in her Random series:

You ever really think that you’ll win the lottery? Meet Mr. Right? How about two Mr. Rights?

Somehow the universe is handing me everything I want (except for that lottery part…), and I don’t like it. Not one little bit. Because just when you get all your dreams handed to you on a silver platter, that’s when an airplane dumps its sewage on your house. Or your mama’s diabetes takes a bad turn. Or your mobile phone gets stuck in your hoohaw.

(What? It happens…)

Boring old average me got everything I wanted already, moving from small-town Ohio to big-city Boston to follow my heart. So when the fancy invitation offering me a pile of money to come with the band, Random Acts of Crazy, to perform on an island resort and be their manager arrived, I thought it was a cosmic joke. Enough money to help my mama get what she needed, five days in sunny paradise, and a shot at greatness for the band? Unreal. One big shoe was waiting to drop. On my head.

Just like no one really ever finds a naked man wearing only a guitar standing by the side of the road hitchhiking and ends up falling in love with him and his friend and moving halfway across the country for true love, no one gets an invitation to come to what turns out to be a resort where people make what me and Joe and Trevor do together look like a chaste peck on the cheek. But…

Well.

I guess these things do happen.

To me.

eBook Review: The Bossman by Renee Rose

Guest review by Lily Harlem.

The BossmanOnce a bad boy always a bad boy, but even Mafia have hearts.

The Bossman is the first book I’ve read by Ms Rose and I have to say I was super-impressed. If spanking kink and a walk-on-the-wild side is your thing then you won’t be disappointed with this easy to read yet also gripping novel.

Joey La Torre, mafia big wig and brother to the boss is one hard to handle hero, but he also has soul and is, of course, devastatingly gorgeous (okay, I’m a sucker for the cover of this book!). The object of his affection, Sophie, is a real dynamite. I’d love to be her friend and confidant because her rollercoaster of emotions as she comes to terms with her new kink are a real treat to observe.

The Bossman hits the ground running, my very favourite way for a story to start. The dialogue between Joey and Sophie is fun, real and knocks backwards and forwards like watching a tennis match. I enjoyed the secondary characters as they were introduced, they gave depth and meaning to the plot and explained Joey and Sophie’s decisions and feelings.

The sex – yes, the good bit – is hot, hot, hot, and like I said if spanking is your thing then your rear will be tingling as you turn the pages. There are so many dynamics at play with this duo. Joey, he might be a hard-nosed mobster but he’s not the type of guy to hit a girl, and Sophie, wondering how submitting to the ‘family’ can be such a turn on after what they did to her.

There is past, present and a sense of what the future will hold for these two. It’s an edgy tale for sure, and there are some scenes, of the spanking variety, that push it to the edge of what must surely be comfortable, but I drank in every word, soaked up each scene and would definitely read more from Ms Rose, especially a book that involves paddles and belts and upturned bottoms as this is clearly her area of specialty. Great book and I’m happy to recommend it to fans of the genre.

eBook Review: A Woman’s Servant by Chris Bellows

Reviewed by Jim Lyon

A Woman's ServantChris Bellows’ A Woman’s Servant is an interesting, yet incomplete, entrée into femdom tale bracketed by loosely related vignettes that primarily depict the day-to-day operations of The Institute, a sperm extraction facility where the story’s narrator works. The chapters dealing with Nurse Cummings’ employment are pure over-the-top diabolical femdom fantasies that don’t necessarily resonate with all aficionados of that genre. Just about the time I was wondering how that narrative could possibly be sustained for an entire book, the true story began to materialize.

It seems that the decidedly kinky nurse has recently relocated and is in need of a very special kind of live-in personal servant who possesses sensibilities complementary to her own. A carefully crafted ad placed in the personals section of Craig’s List lands her a boatload of “applicants”, the vast majority of which are totally unacceptable for a whole host of reasons. One of the hopefuls, an entering freshman at the local college, who has foolishly squandered on a financial domme the money his parents gave him for living expenses, strikes her as the perfect candidate and she proceeds to reel him in.

Mostly the balance of the story chronicles the process by which Nurse Cummings transforms Christopher into Christy, and molds him into her ideal chaste, feminized, and submissive servant. The way that unfolds is told in a wickedly playful manner that mutes much of the cruelty involved. Oddly, the book terminates rather abruptly with Christy heading home for the Christmas holidays followed by a celebration involving the denizens of The Institute.

While this book has flashes of inspiration and often succeeds at drawing the reader into the story, in many respects it feels like the author got bored and didn’t make an effort to blend its two parts together better or to construct a more satisfying conclusion. For those who care about such things, most of the sex appears off camera. Conversely, lavish attention is paid to describing scenes involving Christy undergoing elaborate humiliations that reinforce relinquishing all traces of his masculinity.

The Beginning Banner 450 x 169Walking the Walk

I’ve been writing fiction for nearly a decade. By that, I mean writing for publishing. I’ve been a writer all of my life. Anyway, a few years ago I was reading a popular erotica novel.  What I read was so absurd, I forced my husband to read it.  He understood why I was appalled.  The author clearly hadn’t physically done what she was writing about. Just…the physicality of it was wrong.

Not only that, the character never grew. Ever. You don’t go from virgin to butt pirate without a change in vernacular.

Call for Submissions: New Smut Project

What We Want

For Character-Driven Smut [Title: TBA]

Too often, characterization seems to stop in the bedroom. Characters either don’t exist outside what their naughty bits are doing, or what they do during sex seems to have no connection with the kind of people they are otherwise. Not so here. For this anthology, we want to see sex as only your characters can have it. We want to see real people with depth and personality, having emotionally-relevant sex as determined by the relationship they have with their partner (and that’s “relationship” in the broadest sense of the word).

THE ACCIDENTAL DOMMEAudio Books: The New Frontier for Erotica?

When audio books became available, first as tape cassettes, then CDs, and finally, digital files, there was scant motivation for me to partake of them because I really enjoy reading. Indeed, I questioned why anyone would prefer to listen to a book when reading is so pleasurable. Replacing recreational or educational books with audio versions did not resonate with me at all.

There are, of course, people for whom audio books make perfect sense, such as the blind or those whose eyesight is impaired drastically. For them, audio is a far better option than Braille. People born with dyslexia, a condition that makes reading extremely difficult and definitely not enjoyable, also benefit from them. And those who are primarily auditory learners would do well to indulge in audio books to optimize their learning experience.
