Review:

Barry had one beautiful, short relationship with Lily, but she disappeared without a word, leaving him alone and longing for her. A mysterious lawyer hires Barry to build and run a BDSM club in Las Vegas and, with nothing to hold him, he moves to a new life. When Lily comes back, can they repair the distance three years has created between them?

I found this story to be a little too trite and shallow. First of all, Lily runs away because her connection to Barry freaks her out. Okay. But her answer to Barry’s understandable inquiry as to why she didn’t phone or email or something is so unsatisfactory that I rolled my eyes. It’s not that her reasons for leaving weren’t valid, but that the story seems to gloss over the years between them. Also, the set up of their reunion is pretty unbelievable as well. A mysterious Mistress sends Lily on a blind Dom date? And Lily wants to “test” her ability to be with a Dominant before she seeks out Barry again?

All of these things would have been completely acceptable had the story explored their reconnection a little more. Instead, Barry and Lily breeze through their resentments and problems like they’re nothing, have a little kinky sex and kaboom! Wedding bells.

Fluff definitely has a place in my library and I like the light touch. This story stays on the surface of the relationship and so I was never invested in whether they were together or not. Lily’s angst that kept her away from Barry for three years had no impact on me and did not make her sympathetic. All in all, this story missed me entirely. It wasn’t a wall banger, but it didn’t make much of an impression either.

The First Time Ever I Met…A Dom SpankingMsWhitman-1200x1800

That I know of.

Dom’s don’t have uniforms, sport badges or necessarily wear black leather boots to the office. They, like the subs they love, travel among us incognito. And you may be surprised to learn that some of your favorite people live a life a little different than the average boss.

This was the case in Spanking Ms. Whitman, one of my stories. Mona, the heroine, had no idea that the boss she idolized had another life she knew nothing about, outside of her most secret fantasies.

The first time I met a Dom in person, I was surprised. He looked just like anyone else, under the circumstances. Dressed in business casual, and as friendly and professional as you please. I didn’t know until later he was one. But I liked him, and was drawn to him. He was maybe a little more courteous than the average businessman.

Later, when I met several in one day, thanks to a trip to a dungeon at a convention, I recognized the same feeling. They were all dressed differently. Dungeon attire. In a few cases that actually did involve leather, but also jeans, T-shirts, and lots of kinds of shoes not only boots. Yet each, men and women, displayed a courtesy I rarely see. I kept thinking, they are so polite! To one another, to their guests (us) and to the subs who came in to help them demonstrate a wide variety of things to the authors, editors, and readers who filled their house.

More than polite, since then I’ve realized it’s a strength and feeling of safety I gain in the presence of a strong Dom. Male or female. I’m a pushy broad, I admit that freely. But there’s something incredibly appealing in a Dom.

And one very patient man allowed me to play with all the contents of his toy bag and shared why he liked each one and what he could do with it in the right situation. And demonstrated…just a little.

Another told tales of sadism in such a positive and interesting way, I wanted to see how exactly you do set someone on fire without causing permanent damage. I wasn’t quite ready to be that someone…but it was fascinating! I don’t live everything I write, and I don’t

Now I am more aware of who I meet and when I get that tingle down my spine and that incredibly confusing dangerous yet safe feeling, I wonder …but unless the information is offered, I don’t ask. People are entitled to their privacy, and who doesn’t love a mystery.

As an author who loves writing BDSM, research is both a necessity and a delight.

Blurb:

Anna Palladino dreams of independence from her over-protective but loving family. Her fantasies, gained from erotic novels, show her possibilities she doesn’t believe extend to real life. Her limited experience in the bedroom has confirmed her low expectations.

Edward Masters is ready to give up his own fantasy life if that’s what it takes to have the home and family of his dreams. He has set his sights on a sweet, innocent woman who works for his friend and client Randolph Marks. Marks has found the perfect combination of vixen and warm companion in his Mona, but is it too much to hope that Edward and Anna will be the next office romance at Marks and Company? Is the cute, curly haired receptionist ready to take on the desires of a Dom, or has Edward seen his last night of play in the dungeon?

Review:

Anna, shy and unassuming, is the perfect receptionist. Edward, decides it is time to settle down. A match made in heaven? The story is slow moving and not a whole lot of ‘spank’. For a beginner in the BDSM world this would be a good read. Nice and slow with a ‘breaking in’ factor.

The best part about the whole book was the fact that Edward cared about Anna enough to want to leave the lifestyle if it was not to her liking. And Anna, ready to take on the world and Edward too, won’t let him give up something that is so much a part of his life.

A nice little read for the beginner in the lifestyle!

Randolph Marks, business tycoon by day, dungeon Dom by night, is in a quandary. His favorite employee is late for work again and he must go through with his threat of retribution. But how to go about it without crossing a line and violating good business practices?  He couldn’t possibly get away with spanking Miss Mona.

Review:

HOT! ‘Spanking Ms. Whitman’ by Kate Richards is a quick 50 page sensual and spicy hot read.  The author did a great job writing this erotic story. In this story a Dom and sub discover each other in the most ordinary place, their work. Mona and Randolph are strong characters that struggle with their desire for each other and working together. I loved that they each had feelings beyond sex for each other. This book will keep you warm on a cold winter’s night!
