Bound

By Jason Walker

 

Blurb: A BDSM Relationship can be the most intense of a person’s life and, the most trusting and loving.

 

Bound by leather, and unable to move, twenty-three-year-old Haley instinctively knows that tonight she and her Dominant Jerrod are about to share something very special.

 

With her sexual anticipation mounting by the second, her mind travels back to the first time she met this incredible sexual being. To say that Jerrod has changed her life is an understatement, because this most beautiful and charismatic of men has made her truly come alive for the first time.

 

She loves Jerrod to the point of adoration, and even when she challenges the boundaries he sets for her, he disciplines her with a dominant kindness that often brings her close to tears.

 

Will Jerrod take their relationship to the next level? And if he does, is Haley willing to be guided by her beautiful Master?

Excerpt:

 

It seemed that the harder she pulled against the restraints, the tighter they felt and the more she enjoyed it. Haley was truly bound, and her pleasure, her very existence, felt as if for him alone. Sitting prone in the center of the large room, she could only rely on her hearing and sense of smell to gain any hint of what was happening around her. The blindfold was the first piece in place and promised to be the last removed.

 

Before they began, Haley helped Jerrod remove his shoes. Now she searched the air with her ears for the sound of soft footfalls near or approaching. She had heard her man walk from the room after clicking the wrist restraints into place. Now the quiet was thunderous.

The blindfold had been first, but soon after that was the wide leather collar that kept Haley from bending her head too far forward. Jerrod had placed the bands next. The wide leather straps were wound around her chest and down to her waist. Separate, individual leather bindings were pulled into place on her legs, one around each thigh, and one around each ankle. She was unsure if they were connected as her Master had pushed her to her knees without allowing further movement. The process had taken close to an hour, a glorious, sensual hour for her.

What Haley considered odd was the fact that Jerrod had insisted that she was fully dressed before beginning. Her Master had carefully chosen her outfit, and an old white blouse, tattered jeans and undergarments now pressed against her skin by the restraints he had since applied to her. The cold steel of handcuffs clasped around her wrists and had clicked into place behind her back as the final act of preparation. But preparations for what? She had no idea but had agreed. She was nervous, even a little scared, but her arousal felt palpable.

She perceptibly flinched when Jerrod suddenly spoke. “My love, this night will be filled with pleasures and surprises. I have considered what I know of you, and a few things you may not have even realized about yourself. I plan to act on several of these things. Do you understand and wish to proceed?”

Haley trusted Jerrod completely, and simply nodded her agreement.

Lengthy discussions had preceded this night. There had even been a few test runs, and Haley found each one more exciting and satisfying than the last. Jerrod knew what his sub was willing to do, able to tolerate, wanted to try, and absolutely would not do. She trusted her Master, and knew with all her soul that he would not violate her wishes, while violating her. She wanted her boundaries pushed and in some cases broken, but she also did not want a few very specific things. Being specific was the paramount rule for him when they decided to enter into this special relationship. It had taken her a week to come up with her list of nevers, sometimes, and oftens. He laughed when he looked at the list she had made.
“The only thing on here that matter are the nevers. If it is a sometimes, or an often…well, those are the same thing.”

What Harlie’s Summer Plans are or not

 

Please?
Please?

 

*reposted from Sweet N Sexy Divas*

 

I’m so boring right now.  Between baseball games/practice, getting my 3rd grader to not have an anxiety attack over a state mandated test and life in general…yes, I’m boring.

I used to not be boring.  My 20’s were wild as hell.  A sometime marvel at how I manage to survive them at times.  At 47, I look back now and realize that my 20’s were a romance book.  But without the HEA…just a HFN.  Some people have asked me to write a book about it but I promised my brother that I wouldn’t until after our parents are buried.  They don’t need to know just how wild I was.  I was considered the good kid.  Never got in trouble, went to church, taught Sunday School, never missed a family event.  Underneath all that, yep, I was wild. 

The stories I could tell about hanging out with the regional rock bands of the 90’s in the Dallas music scene.  Yes, ladies and gents…it would make your toes curl.  Plus, just not at this time.  Yes, hanging out with Zak Wyde from Ozzy’s band, watching my friends from Drowning Pool finally make it and then the lead singer and friend of mine dying of a weak heart.  The stories I could tell you about Pantera.  Yep, lots of stories.  Great guys but I couldn’t hang.  LOL! 

Why am I telling you this right now?  Well a couple of reasons.  The biggest is that I’m writing again.  I know, shocker.  I’m taking the summer off from reviewing (still blogging and promoting) to finish some stuff that I’ve started.  This is what I have to finish:

1.  An anthology call for a publisher.  Its a Bad Boy story at least 5k.  So far, I’ve written 2k and my hero/heroine haven’t had sex yet.  Word count limit is 12k.  Woot!  Oh and the hero might be a “bad boy” but the heroine is the one that takes the lead in the bedroom.

2.  Finish the outline to a YA/NA crossover series.  I’ve outlined book #1 (YA/high school).  Book #2 is the college based book (mature YA) and then the NA after college story.  Need to finish the last one and polish the second one.  Hint:  these books are semi-autobiographical.  At least the first one is and the characters are based on real people that I grew up with.  *sigh*  Nothing worked out, so this is my way of making it work out.  LOL!  But I will tell you, the hero and heroine stay the same.  Each book will be able to stand alone. 

3.  Finish a short romantic suspense w/paranormal elements.  I’ve waited too long to NOT finish it.  Think Andrew Dice Clay (don’t judge) as the hero as an angel.  Yes, as an angel.  But he doesn’t smoke (much) or treat women like dirt.  😉  But he does drive a 1985 Black Trans Am with t-tops. 

4.  If I have time, write some on the small town contemporary that has some people interested.  This one is a tough one for me.  It deals with my uncle’s death and the fallout but with different occupations.  I’ve already cried during one scene.

So there you have it.  What I planned for the summer in terms of writing.  Yes, reviewing has to take a backseat.  I can’t be put under that much calendar restraint right now.  I don’t have an assistant anymore, just me so it was a decision that I had to make. 

Meanwhile back in Lindale…Only 4 more weeks of regular baseball and then the month of June is All Star baseball.  Yes, baseball takes over from February until the end of June.

Book Blast of Rapt (An Erotica Tale) by Laurel Cremant

Rapt_1400x2100_300dpiRapt (An Erotic Tale)

By Laurel Cremant

 

 

Blurb: Jessica Sinclair has spent the last year tip toeing around her new boss Lucas Wright. She wants him and he knows it, but she has no intention of giving into temptation. She’s always enjoyed a little pain with her pleasure, but she never thought denial could feel so good. Every meeting drives her to a sexual edge and yet they’ve never shared a simple kiss. Resisting him has become a delicious game.

Lucas Wright has enjoyed playing the waiting game with Jessica. The sadist in him enjoys every quip and parry they share. But every man has his limits and he’s officially reached his. He’d never thought that he would find his perfect match in a woman as stubborn as Jessica, but every teasing encounter has convinced him it’s time to put an end to their games and show her just how sweet surrender can be.

 

 

Excerpt: (18 + only – language and sexual situations)

“You remember,” he said now with a smile.

“What exactly am I supposed to be remembering?” she asked.

“That I’m an incredibly observant man,” he said.

She remained silent.

“Nothing to say?” he asked.

Licking her lips, she shook her head.

“Excellent.”

He leaned forward in his seat, resting his elbows on his knees, the hand holding his drink dangling down his leg.

“Show me,” he said.

His husky demand rocked her. Did she dare?

“We can always not play,” he said at her hesitation.

No!

Her heart lurched at that possibility. As much as their new game challenged her, she didn’t want it to end. Instead, she licked her lips and held his gaze. It wasn’t difficult. When he was near she remained caught in a strange web of want and greedy expectation controlled only by him.

She unfolded her arms and placed her hands at her sides, curling her fingers tight into her palms. The small bite of her nails digging into her skin helped ground her. Slowly, she uncrossed her legs and pressed her knees tightly together.

His gaze didn’t flicker downward to look, the golden flecks in his eyes seemed to glow and held her transfixed.

“Show me,” he said again.

Taking a deep shaky breath, she unfurled her fingers and clenched the smooth satin of her skirt before pulling it up her thighs, inch by inch before settling the bunched material at her hips.

“More.”

At his husky demand, she spread her legs open, exposing her secret to him, feeling the cool caress of air drift over her naked sex. His gaze didn’t waver—it didn’t dip down to see what she offered to him.

“Perfect. Now isn’t that better?”

She nodded at a loss for words. She did feel better. Something about exposing herself to him—of them both being fully aware of her eagerness to please ratcheted up her need to another notch.

“Good,” he said. “I remember that day so clearly. It was the first time I’ve ever seen you so distracted. Your eyes were glassy and bright. But you know what tipped me off to your naughty little secret?” he asked.

She licked her lips unsure of how to answer.

“You kept squirming in your chair crossing and uncrossing your legs and every now and then you would let out a sexy sigh. That’s when I knew and I wanted to see how long you could last like that. What it would take to break you? That was the day I realized we’d both been playing the same game all along.”

He took another sip of his drink, a small smile playing across his lips.

“I’d wondered about it for a while which is why extended my business trip. I wanted to see if our meetings where as stimulating to you as they were to me.”

She clenched her hands tighter, her breath coming out in deep pants. She wanted him to look at her, to slide his hot gaze down to her center and see how wet and ready she was for him. He didn’t. Lucas continued to speak as if she wasn’t open and bared to him.

“Another test?” she asked, her voice sounding wispy and thin to her ears.

He nodded.

“In a way. That’s when I realized that you and I could be great together. I loved watching you squirm, loved knowing that you sat there with your wet, creaming pussy, and that it was all for me. But most of all I enjoyed denying you that release, of knowing the pain of denial was bringing us both so much pleasure.”

She couldn’t refute the truth in his words, even now as he spoke to her, ignoring her splayed legs, he kept her on edge.

“I’ve always known that I’m a bit of a sadist,” he said. “But I’ve never been into physical pain. I’ve never wanted to whip a woman or spank her until she begged—although I can see the merits in that. My weakness has always been in denial, in a woman giving me ultimate control of her body and arousal, allowing me to determine when and where she gets to come.”

“That day in my office I realized you wanted the same things. You were bringing yourself to the edge of orgasm all because we were both denying you pleasure. If I’m a bit of a sadist Jessica, you are most definitely a masochist.”

“Then what does that make us?” she asked.

A dimple flashed on his cheek as he smirked at her.

“A perfect match,” he said.
