I’m so excited that the first book in my “Bound to You” trilogy is now live, and available on Amazon and Blushing Books!
Things are going well for Meredith and her husband, Paolo—until a terrible car accident leaves him disabled. As he distances himself from her emotionally, Meredith finds herself increasingly seeking consolation in her fantasy world. Escaping into her erotic romance books helps keep the loneliness at bay, and awakens in her a curiosity about the Dominant/submissive lifestyle.
The day she stumbles across a website forum for real-life submissives and Dominants, her life is forever changed. These are not characters created by authors. They are real people, who are both familiar with and willing to discuss the D/s lifestyle with her. As Meredith’s knowledge and understanding increase, she realizes that there is one question only she can answer—is she truly submissive, or is the fantasy better left in the pages of books?
In a last ditch attempt to discover who she really is, she agrees to pledge her obedience to an anonymous, online Dom. After all, it can’t really be considered cheating if he is just a faceless entity in cyberspace, surely? The first time she’s given an order, however, the scenario becomes all too real, leaving her with some serious thinking to do. Will her devotion to her online Dominant take precedence over her real, flesh and blood husband?
Will Meredith’s journey of self-discovery destroy her marriage, or will she and Paolo somehow find a way to begin again?
How about an excerpt?
She spied a tall, almost full of a bottle of wine, white zinfandel she’d picked up a few weeks before. It was delicious, and fruity, and not being one to drink very often, she’d completely forgotten it was there.
It could be fun chatting with Mr. Brookstone with the buzz of wine coursing through her.
She filled a tall wine glass with the fragrant white wine, and put it back in the fridge.
If she were a submissive, would she have to ask for permission before she had a drink? She thought back to what Mr. Brookstone had said. Would she be in trouble for indulging in a glass of vinho, as Paolo would say, without permission?
“I would also spank her for disobeying me…”
The heat from the wine surging through her, intermingled with the warmth of Mr. Brookstone’s dominant comment, she fairly floated her way back to her bedroom.
People didn’t want to be punished. The whole point of punishment was that it had to be avoided.
So why was she so drawn to the idea of being punished?
