Sting Factor (kink): 5 out of 5


Mission Pleasure, Book Two

Nora, a CIA ballistics expert, has recently begun visiting a BDSM club, but with limited experience, she’s afraid to indulge her submissive side—until she sees coworker Alexander St. Clare performing a public display of punishment. Equal parts shocked and inflamed, she flees when Alex notices her, praying it won’t mean an end to her career.

Sexual Dominant and spy, Alex is surprised to see the pretty agent from his office at Decadence. Even more surprised by Nora’s obvious arousal as she watches him perform. Her reaction ignites something deep inside him, but the dangers of the job mean he can never act on it.

When an assignment allows them a taste of the forbidden, the intensity between them is off the charts. Amidst the backdrop of a dangerous mission, Alex and Nora discover each might just have what the other has always craved.

Inside Scoop: Nora enjoys group sex with three Dominant marines and a female sub, spanking, bondage and knife play.


Can you imagine having a job that you are always worried about the real reason they are with you? Nora a CIA ballistics agent always has that on her mind and she tries to be careful and ever vigilant with whoever she gets involved with. One night at a club she spots a Dom named Alex that intrigues her until she finds out that they work at the same place. Nora hopes that she wasn’t recognized by the sexy Dom, but all hopes of that are dashed when she is called in the office and told of her next assignment.

All kinds of vibes are running off the charts here with lust being one of them. Nora and Alex are given the mission is to take down a bad guy while playing the husband/Dom and Wife/sub. Of course one thinks they can do it… the other one doesn’t.

I loved this book. The Dom acted the ass a bit, but not because of some deep seated tragic event in his life. The Dom was a Dom because he enjoyed being a Dom not because of a shadowed hurtful past. It was a decent length and I loved both main characters. I’d be interested in seeing what happens with character Sebastian’s future. A bit of intrigue and some super hot scenes makes this book easily one of my favorites.

The past has a habit of molding our present and interfering with our future. The old saying about learning from ones past, this young woman she is an intelligent, strong a bit sassy. Ruby has a past and because of that past she may lose her future.

Joshua is a hardened ex military that made his own fortune. He makes his own rules in business and in play. By chance he meet Ruby.  

Ruby borders on being a brat submissive, quick to judge and act accordingly. Ruby’s past experiences with rich men who want to be Doms has clouded her thoughts, and makes her determined not to get involved again. As she watches her friend Jaime in an erotic scene, her body reminds her of what she is missing.

Ex’s are the bane of anyone be it female or male, and Joshua has his hands full with an ex lover who is viscous and tenacious in her want of Joshua.

All around this was just an awesome book, the patience level that Joshua showed was amazing. The scenes were hot and flowed with the story line, the characters are believable as well as likable. It all meshed in the entirety. Thanks Ms. Sanderson for the chance to read one of your books. I would and will recommend it. Enjoy.

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 love reading BDSM books but my first story, The Invitation, was more of a sweet erotic romance. There wasn’t any kink or BDSM. I enjoyed writing it, I was happy with how it turned out, but I didn’t adore it. Something was missing. That something was kink. My second book was a BDSM erotic novella and that was when I knew — I’m happiest when writing kinky books. I do write in other genres. I’ve written historical and paranormal. I’ve just received a contract from Ellora’s Cave for a futuristic novel. All my books do contain kink or BDSM no matter what genre.

 Are you actively involved in BDSM? If so how do you identify yourself? Dom(me)/sub? Top/bottom? Switch?

I spent many years trying to deny the fact I was kinky. Finally, about four years ago I admitted that I need BDSM. So yes, I am actively involved. After reading and exploring many different ‘labels’ I settled on sub. I’m a submissive. It makes me smile because people see me as more of a Dominant than a submissive!

Is there one area of BDSM that you tend to write about more? Why do you think that area creeps into your writing more than some others?

Definitely spanking, bondage and Dom/sub relationships. These appear in every one of my books. I’m fascinated by these areas of BDSM and love exploring the power dynamics between couples. I enjoy getting my ass paddled and being restrained. For most people it’s a taboo and they won’t explore their fantasies because of fear or judgement.  I hope to give people the courage to explore their desires.

Do you write BDSM/kink erotica based on what you find interesting or sexy, or do you write more for your audience?

I think I answered that question already! I write kink based on what I find sexy or what interests me. I write what I have explored or what I would like to explore. Then I wait with fingers crossed to see if the audience enjoy it.

At this point in your career, do you think you’ll write more BDSM/kinky erotica?

Oh, yes. Wicked Game which is available now at Ellora’s Cave and Amazon is probably my kinkiest book so far. The hero abducts the heroine…and that’s all I’m going to say! After that, I have many more BDSM themed stories planned. I’m working on one as we speak.

When you’re writing BDSM/kinky-related erotica, is there a particular movie or music that you might watch or listen to that helps you get in that frame of mind?

It changes with each book, but I do tend to gravitate towards rock/metal. Or something sexy — Marvin Gaye, Prince. Right now, Trent Reznor’s Girl with the Dragon Tattoo soundtrack is fuelling my muse.

If someone new to your work is going to start with a story, which one would you recommend they read first?

Beg Me. It’s my first ‘kinky’ story, and I adore Jared *swoons* It contains hot spanking scenes, public naughtiness and a determined Alpha male!

 Who is your favorite BDSM/kinky author? Movie?

My favourite kinky author is Reese Gabriel.  I absolutely love Reese’s work. I do have to mention Emma Holly though. Ménage was the first contemporary kinky book I read about seven years ago. That was when I knew I wanted to write. My favourite kinky movie…hmmm…clichéd but I have to say Secretary.

Sting Factor (kink): 4 out of 5

Ruth Hamilton is in deep trouble. Not only is she lusting after the most unattainable guy, Dominic “Dom” Sullivan, but she just unknowingly told him her deepest, darkest fantasy and all she got in return was her world rocked. Being the town librarian doesn’t lead to much excitement for Ruth and yet all she dreams about is being a naughty girl for only Dom, if only he wouldn’t have been a third for her best friend than he wouldn’t be off limits to her. When the opportunity arises to get Dom right where she wants him, will Ruth be brave enough to go for it or will Dom have to force her hand?

Dominic Sullivan needs Ruth something fierce, and he is going to have her no matter the cost. The innocence that comes off of Ruth just makes Dom hard in all the right places. She acts like she wants him and yet anytime he tries to get close she shuts down. Dom is determined to get Ruth in his bed, or any room in his house for that matter. Making her see that he knows all the moves to make her scream is a challenge that Dominic is up for, so Ruth better watch out because she won’t know what hit her.

What a great story! This is a first for me from Scarlett Sanderson and all I can say is HOT. The sex in this story was amazing, almost had me going for my vibrator at some points. Dominic was so manly and sexual that is was amazing to this that Ruth didn’t just melt into a puddle at his feet.  I am sure I would have. If you want a HOT story with great sex while still being realistic, than this is a story to add to your TBB/TBR pile.

Beg Me

Ellora’s Cave [link to buy]

Rating: 3 out of 5 Paddles


Tessa fantasizes about being tied up and tantalized with pleasure. She longs for a man to take control, to drive her wild with lust. But she’s never been able to let go and indulge in her most taboo desires.

The second Jared sees Tessa, he wants her. Her fierce intelligence and repressed sensuality call to him, make him burn with a passion he hasn’t felt in years.

Jared offers Tessa a deal—for a month, they’ll play a game of dominance and submission. He’ll make her beg, make her moan, make her come harder and faster than she ever has before. In return? He just wants great sex.No strings attached. But when he can’t get enough of Tessa’s scent, her taste,her touch, he realizes what he really wants is her love.

Publisher’s Note: This story was previously published elsewhere under the title Devil’s Dance and has been revised for Ellora’s Cave. If you like smoking-hot spanking scenes, public naughtiness and determined alpha males, this one’s for you.


There are things I love about Beg Me and things I thought could have been a little better. Overall, I would recommend this to anyone looking for a shorter story that includes a little kink and a lot about exploring our desires.

This is not a hardcore BDSM story, but I think it touches on several elements very well. I loved the feelings and descriptions of Tessa’s first visit to a BDSM club and how she felt learning about munches. The writing at this point is very well done and gave me flashbacks to my first visits. The things I was disappointed in include the length and what felt like a rushed ending. After a lot of emotional build up, the end just felt like it exploded in a big rush.

Both Tessa and Jared have a bit of emotional baggage to overcome. But, they kind of want the same things. And that is basically, a D/s relationship within the bedroom and specific instances. The relationship works for both of them, almost too well. Tessa gets to explore spankings, bondage, and submission. Jared gets to train and teach and let his heart become involved.

Again, I would recommend Beg Me to someone looking for a lighter story that has a great introduction of characters and their experiences. It’s an erotic story with just enough D/s to be enticing and steamy.
