Sting Factor (kink): 3 out of 5
Desperate times call for desperate measures. Jasmine has decided that “Old and alone with my battery-operated boyfriends is not where I am going to end up”.
For two months Jasmine has waited for an invitation to The Black Lily, a BDSM club that can only be entered with an invitation and it has finally come. Scared and yet excited she prepares as directed by her invitation to take the first steps into something totally unknown to her. Being independent and self-sufficient seems to be a turn off to her having a relationship. Maybe BDSM will be the solution.
For a hundred years Marcus has searched for something or someone to complete him. She has finally walked through the door of his club. Marcus can sense that Jasmine is unsure of herself so he is sure to take things ever so slowly to help build her trust in him. He starts with a tour of part of the club and gauges her reactions to what she is seeing for the first time. He can smell her excitement and arousal and has a hard time containing himself, he must not move too fast and scare her off.
Jasmine feels she is ready to take things a step up from watching and agrees to go with Marcus to his place. When they enter he blindfolds her but softly and sensually talks her into backing up to the bed and gently reassures her as he places cuffs on her and talks to her constantly as he restrains her spread eagle on the bed. Constant sensual touching and words bring her to an orgasm. As she is being released and comforted she admits that she has never before experienced an orgasm with a man. Marcus is so pleased when she expresses her desire to do more.
Bella Morte: A Beautiful Death Anthology by various authors

Sting Factor (kink): 1 out of 5
The Debut Launch Anthology from Hot Ink Press (an Erotic Imprint of Crushing Hearts and Black Butterfly Publishing). Bella Morte: Make your nights sizzle like summertime and feed your desire with sensual illusion and fantastic stories in the Bella Morte Anthology. This anthology features stories from some of today’s freshest erotica romance authors. Bella Morte will leave your heart racing and your imagination running wild. Vampires, Genies, and Demon Hunters are the lovers of choice; guaranteed to bring a little death to everyone.
This anthology is a combination of short stories and poetry. There is no BDSM, although there is some F/F action and an orgy or two. Most of the stories are paranormal and erotic in nature and only the last one was worth the effort of reading. The poems include: Beautiful Death and Bella Morte, by Carly Wallace; Whispers in the Night by Jade Mira; and Night of Ecstasy by Harley de Luca, who is also the author of the poem, Taboo.
The first story, the Gypsy Princess, was written with such poor grammar that I wondered if the author, Samantha Bradie, spoke English as a second language. This one features F/F action as Gypsy Queen Rain seduces Jade on her 18th birthday, informs her she is a siren and sends her out to earn money as a prostitute. This sets the tone for the other stories, although most use better grammar.
The Devil went Down by Johnny Dahmer is about a female devil who has sex with men then dissects them, in a to-be-continued story. Meh.
When you first started writing, did you have any idea you’d be writing BDSM/kinky books? Do you write in any other genre?
I actually started out writing a paranormal romance book purely vanilla and with no erotica in it. The book completely stalled at the sex scenes, I just couldn’t write a story and not get to the nitty gritty. I haven’t written in any other genre’s as of yet, but you never know.
Do you use a pen name? If yes (or no), why?
I do use a pen name currently. I live in a small town and wasn’t sure of the local community reaction.
Are you actively involved in BDSM? If so how do you identify yourself? Dom(me)/sub? Top/bottom? Switch?
I am not actively involved myself; although I do belong do a few chat groups and discussion boards and personally know people in the lifestyle.
At what point did you decide you wanted to write BDSM/kinky-themed erotica?
It wasn’t really an exact point. It is just the story that seemed to need to be written. I have always had an interest in BDSM and kink, so it was a natural progression in my writing.
Was there something that happened to you in your life or career that made you want to begin thinking about writing BDSM/kinky-themed erotica?
Nothing that I can think of that really happened to me personally. I just think mainstream people have the wrong idea about it and really need to be educated and sometimes fiction writing is easier to educate people than a lecture.
Why do you thiIs there one area of BDSM that you tend to write about more?nk that area creeps into your writing more than some others?
Mistress of Passion by Harley De Luca
Published by Hot Ink Press
In the realm of all things sexual, Rachel used her sexuality as a form of escape. She desperately tried to avoid her past to manipulate her future by delving into the dark recesses of all things kinky. With a fearful past, she turned her hurt, rage, confusion and unexplained passion into nothing but pure pleasure. Being a Mistress came naturally for Rachel, she was good at being a Dom. Only one challenge stood in her way, would she able to accept her life the way it was now or was she secretly yearning for something more?
Dominic was your all around “grade-A” male. Had the job, the money, the title, but didn’t have the will to live, not until he walked into London Leather. Like most of the rich and famous he needed the escape of normality, needed to be reminded of who he was when he was stripped of everything. He had been stripped before but not like this. Would he be able to withstand all he was about to receive or would he have to resort back to his old ways and just pray for death?
