A Quick Question About Controlling Heroes
This is a quickie to celebrate my quickie. I’d like to talk about control. How much is enough? My latest little short has a BDSM element layered into my alpha wolf story. No, to be an alpha you don’t have to be a Dom, but…it sure helps make for some good fun.
I grew up in a controlling household. Some would say, “That’s just how we did things and how we grew up.” But, by anyone’s standards today, it was controlling. So, it surprised me that in my 30s, I’m totally intrigued by a man that needs control. (I’m married to a wonderful man that totally doesn’t, and he’s a blessing I couldn’t live without it.) But everyone has their fantasies! My question, is this. When is it too much?
I’m writing my BDSM prequel to Master Me that was featured in Halloween Heat II and finding that my hero is a total control freak in the bedroom, but not really in real life. Is that okay? Does this make him weird, or just totally hot. I’d really love to know what you guys think. Where do you want a man to call the shots? How much is too much?

“Master Me” by Rachel Firasek
It’s trick or treat when Raina brings her beta
in to help her chosen pack leader ease into his role. Changing him had
been easy, but learning how to tame his wolf without breaking his spirit
will be the test of a true alpha. For a new formed pack, Raina will do
almost anything to keep the man she loves happy, even if it means
letting go of the only person she’s ever trusted and submitting in all
ways to her new Master.
