Genre: Romantic Suspense/BDSM/Erotica
POV: First person

Released on August 29, 2017


4.5 Stars!


Lois Reeves is an operative who must prepare for her next undercover assignment. In order to do so, she needs to understand her pain threshold and learn how to be a proper submissive. Upon meeting her exasperating trainer, she didn’t expect an immediate attraction to him but Lois is determined to succeed in her assignment.

“If I was a fly trapped in a spider’s web, the guy in front of me was a fucking tarantula: venomous and deadly.”

James Leverett is a Dominant and is simply known to be the best. Contracted to train many submissives at Elite Encounters, he’s intrigued by Lois and doesn’t believe she can truly submit. That said, James is more than ready for their game of dominance and submission.

#WIPITUP Wednesday – Back to the Grindstone with Sparks! :) #BDSM Suspense


I’m back! Did you miss me? I’m finally back writing again – and I’m going to finish the short story I did in ‘Dirty Doms’ which is now going to be called ‘Sparks.’ So, here’s a little snippet of where Lois is right now 🙂



Two months later I found myself sitting behind a spotless glass desk in a prestigious London office, dressed in an immaculate black suit and bored out of my mind with paper work. Miss Sharkey (appropriately named – or should that have been Snarkey?) had decided to keep an eye on me before she agreed to clear me for field duty, and I had to admit that I was as close as I’d ever been to having my sturdy rod of control snapped in half. Filing in chronological order should have been declared a modern day torture method. Seriously, I’d take waterboarding over the past three weeks of hell I’d been forced to endure. The inactivity was killing me, the coffee sucked, and the work was mind-numbingly boring. Faxing, copying, redirecting telephone calls, typing, spreadsheets, and more of the same came my way daily. The eight-hour workday suddenly morphed into a suffocating prison sentence with seemingly no end in sight. I couldn’t help but wonder if they were actively trying to court my resignation. There was no way I could take much more of this. How did people do this everyday?

That’s all for this week folks, but there’s much more to read over at WIPITUP Wednesday 😉

Women Writing The Erotic: Part Three

Another brilliant edition of ‘Women Writing the Erotic’ from Emmanuelle De Maupassant. Why we do what we do – and what we’d like to change about the world of erotica… I hope you enjoy! 🙂

Emmanuelle de Maupassant

erotic-fiction-women-writersIn this series (within the 130 authors survey), I’m sharing women’s views on exploring sexuality through fiction. If you haven’t already readPart One orPart Two,  it’s best to begin there.

Here, we look at what first inspired these women authors to tackle sexual themes, and the significance of gender to their work.

In writing erotic fiction, sex is the lens through which we explore our world and our identity. Our writing is a pathway to knowing ourselves: physically, mentally, and emotionally.

In expressing our understanding of our sexual self, looking at how erotic impulse shapes us, we recognize that we are more than intellect, and more than emotion. We are also ‘of the body’.

Ina Morata tells us, “Sex is the medium I use to investigate psychological boundaries: my personal insecurities and fears. I explore who I am and see how far I can push…
