Guest Post: Rebecca Grace Allen’s 10 Reasons Why Lawyers Make Great Doms

His Contract Rebecca Grace Allen

In romance, businessmen have a reputation for being some of the yummiest heroes out there. They’re smart, powerful, and look damn good in a suit. Lawyers check all those boxes, and take the smoking-hot-hero level to explosive when you add in their passion for the law. So what makes a lawyer an excellent Dominant? Here’s my top ten reasons why: (For pics-pirational purposes, I’ve added images of Harvey Specter from the TV show Suits.)

1. Lawyers have confidence.

Capable attorneys radiate a sense of command that puts his or her clients at ease. It’s not just from the cut of their clothing or the dollar amounts in their paychecks—a good lawyer must make countless decisions during a trial, decisions where someone’s future hangs in the balance, and he or she must know they have the stuff to win. That kind of self-assurance in a Dom’s hands? *fans self*

Guest Post: Adventures of a Bad Boy With Callum Hughes from HIS KIND OF TROUBLE by Terri L. Austin

His Kind of Trouble Terri L. Austin

Hello there, my name is Callum Hughes. Though originally from the UK, I spent my life kicking around the globe, seeing new places and falling in love along the way. Mostly with vintage European sports cars, though trust me, women didn’t escape my notice. Have you ever been to Rio during Carnival? Quite an experience, to say the least. The ladies, the parties…well, decadent is one word for it.

Anyway, I’ve developed something of a reputation as a car restoration expert, but really, I just love bringing these works of art back to their former automotive glory. I take pride in my work, but I find it hard to stay in one place for long. Unless I’m obsessing over something like a ’54 Alfa Romeo B.A.T., I enjoy traveling. A lot.

Guest Post: Speed: The Complete Rock Star Collection by Jess Dee

Speed: The Complete Rock Star Collection Jess Dee

The release of my newest boxset, Speed: The Complete Rock Star Collection, reminded me how I initially came up with the idea for the Speed series. See, it all evolved from one tiny, little innocent daydream.

I was listening to my favorite song at the time (Jason Mraz’s I’m Yours) and fantasizing about how cool it would be if I could meet the star in person. With that, my mind immediately began exploring all the possible (okay, impossible) ways to make this happen and settled on the scenario of finding myself seated next to him on a plane trip.

Exclusive Excerpt: THE QUEEN by Tiffany Reisz

The Queen Tiffany Reisz

Today The Queen, the final book in the Original Sinners White Years by Tiffany Reisz is out! This is a fantastic series that I enjoy and Tiffany’s writing is fantastic! (If you haven’t read the series, you should start with The Siren, which is book one of the Red Years and on sale for $1.99!) We’ve got an exclusive excerpt for you from The Queen, and hope you enjoy!

Once upon a time, Nora and Søren made a fateful deal—if he gave her everything, she would give him forever. 

The time has finally come to keep their promises. 

Out of money and out of options after her year-long exile, Eleanor Schreiber agrees to join forces with Kingsley Edge, the king of kink. After her first taste of power as a Dominant, Eleanor buries her old submissive self and transforms into Mistress Nora, the Red Queen. With the help of a mysterious young man with a job even more illicit than her own, Nora squares off against a cunning rival in her quest to become the most respected, the most feared Dominatrix in the Underground.

While new lovers and the sweet taste of freedom intoxicate Nora, she is tempted time and time again by Søren, her only love and the one man who refuses to bow to her. But when Søren accepts a new church assignment in a dangerous country, she must make an agonizing choice—will the queen keep her throne and let her lover go, or trade in her crown for Søren’s collar?

With a shattering final confession, the last link in the chain is forged in The Original Sinners saga. It’s the closing chapter in a story of salvation, sacrifice and the multitude of scars we collect in the name of ecstasy—and love.

Kingsley caressed her cheek with the back of his fingers.

He narrowed his eyes at her, his expression inscrutable.

“What? What is it?” she asked.

Has Erotica Become the Beige Granny Panties of Romance?

EverAfter Romance

I first discovered erotica when I first discovered ebooks. I loved erotica for the same reason I love reading in general: I love the escape and the ability to live through the fictional lives of others. At that time I was a young mother with a stressful job and financial issues. Reading was great, but erotica was exciting and new and, not to mention kind of dirty and forbidden.

Then Fifty Shades of Grey happened and erotica became a bit more mainstream. It wasn’t hard to find a book with BDSM elements or with an Alpha Billionaire and a naive young protege. Taboo wasn’t taboo anymore; it was everywhere. People were actually asking me about erotica (albeit in hushed tones) at church. Erotica was easy to get and I was reading it as often as I was reading mainstream romance novels.

And then I wasn’t and I’m not.

Why? Because it all started to read the same. No longer was erotica the sexy, bright, red thong of my reading wardrobe, it became the beige granny panties. Just a boring same old-same old in which an Alpha billionaire/MC president/rockstar/DEA Agent/MMA fighter/sex club owner/shifter of some kind meets a naive ingenue/single mom/investigative journalist/uptight sex therapist/curvy entrepreneur and teaches her about the darker side/emotional healing power/feminist truth of pleasure. Over and over and over again. For me, erotica became the Groundhog Day of reading.
