Learning to Let Go Series

Working tonight on book one of my series "Learning to Let Go."  A wonderful friend of mine suggested that I put together some pictures of a character before writing the character.  One of the main characters of the story is Dr Charlie Glynn.  I have a general idea of his storyline, but I had not really solidified the physical features yet.  I found some pictures of the ideal Dr. Glynn.  I absolutely love the green eyes!  He is a doctor in a small Midwestern town, that stumbles into a self-destructing young lady.  Of course being an alpha male, he feels that he needs to save her. 
Anyway, I wanted to share my inspiration!

Secret Storm Book Review Amelia James

I had the pleasure of reading "Secret Storm" by Amelia James.  The book was re-released on October 2, 2012. 

“I want to let you in, Jack, but I…. Oh hell, I just want you. I know you’re not what I need, but I don’t care. Take me to bed now and we’ll sort the rest out later.”
The last thing Sara Jensen needs is another risky relationship. She wants Jack, but she’s been hurt too many times to trust him even though he’s more than a friend. Jack won’t trust her, and that hurts more than her ex’s betrayal.
Jack Wheeler wants Sara. His long denied lust burns barely contained. But a dangerous secret comes back to haunt him, a secret so horrible he can’t trust anyone with it, not even the woman he desires more than anything.
For the first time since they met, they’re both available, but the timing couldn’t be worse. Sara’s not too eager to trust a man again, and Jack refuses to reveal his secret. Getting involved now is complicated, but Sara and Jack have waited long enough. Neither one of them can control their desires. But there’s a storm approaching, and as hard as she tries, Sara can’t run away from Jack’s past. Jack won’t accept her help, and Sara doesn’t know how long she can wait for him to realize he needs her.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book!  Ms. James did a wonderful job bringing the characters to life.  I was completely engrossed in the story and once I picked it up, I couldn't put it back down!   The chemistry between Jack and Sara starts out as friendly, then changes to turbulent, and then ends up being passionate.  It was a huge roller coaster ride!  The story was a complete erotic novel with an alpha male, a tempting heroine, and hot, hot sex scenes.  Speaking of sex scenes, even though it was not an actual BDSM theme, there were some serious dominant tendencies.  Loved it - it was a great read!

Freaky Friday Fun Night!

Friday Night is Now Freaky Friday Fun Night!

Each Friday, I will be spotlighting an activity that you and your significant other(s) can use to encourage some serious, hot lovemaking.  That's right, let's get freaky on Fridays!  (Well, I prefer to get freaky every night, but that's just me).

Tonight's activity will be....

Strip poker!
(If you're not a fan of poker, you can do strip blackjack, or strip Monopoly...whatever)

Before starting the game you and your partner have chosen, write down three different lovemaking positions from karma sutra (you can even google karma sutra positions if you are a vanilla type of couple). Try one that you have never done before.  Remember here, safe, sane and consensual. Don't choose a position that you know your lover would absolutely refuse if your weren't playing. A little boundary pushing is ok, but don't subject your partner to something that is on their hard limit list - that is strictly forbidden. 

I am thinking that if I win tonight, I will choose standing jack-hammer position! Love that one!

Begin playing your game of choice, but every round you lose, you lose an article of clothing (earrings and dentures are not considered articles of clothing people!)
When one partner ends up completely naked, the other partner is deemed the winner and can choose the lovemaking position.
Maybe you can even be a good sport and let the loser pick the second love making position if you are feeling up to counting orgasms tonight?  (wink wink)

Tonight's gonna be a good night!

Author Interview: Holly S. Roberts Domination in Pink

“Domination in Pink: A Club El Diablo Book” by Holly S. Roberts will be released on October 18th. I had the pleasure of reading the book and I loved, loved, loved it! The novella is a part of the Club El Diablo series and is seriously hot! Holly graciously took the time to answer some questions I had for her about the novella and the series.

Holly, this book was smoking hot! Damian and Lydia are both powerful Dom/Dommes – you really took a leap to put them both together in a dominant/submissive relationship. Did you have inspiration for the couple, or are they total figments of your beautiful imagination?

I work in a male dominated field with high testosterone and contempt for any type of weakness. I can take care of myself and I kick ass daily. Then, I come home to a Dom who loves me, is not intimidated by my strong personality, and masters me in the bedroom. Club El Diablo is a figment of my imagination but Damian and Lydia’s characters have a lot of my own M/s relationship running throughout their world.

What was the hardest part about writing “Domination in Pink?”

Most definitely the research though I loved it. I would hate to think that someone would use my book as an example of BDSM play during pregnancy and have it cause a problem. I was told I could drink as much iced tea as I wanted throughout one of my pregnancies and then two years later told no caffeine. Medical recommendations change constantly and I did not trust the kink my husband and I experienced ourselves when writing this book. I strongly recommend discussing your lifestyle with a qualified doctor while pregnant and nursing.

There are so many great lines in this story. My favorite is after Damian tries to soften his words to Lydia and she tells him “You're getting soft Master but put those lips to mine and I'll f**k your mouth” Total jaw dropping moment for me! Is Lydia always this feisty with her Dom, or is this related to her pregnancy?

Lydia is always feisty and pushing her Dom, trying to top him, and craving his control. This is what makes her unique. It was hard for Damian because she was pregnant and he had to come up with different types of punishments to keep her in line. The term “ball gag” comes to mind.

When you are writing, do you tend to put a lot of yourself into the characters?

Yes I do but I also have a vast imagination. I would love to have a Club El Diablo to play out my every fantasy. Thank goodness it’s waiting for me in my stories.

The birthing scene is incredible! Did your own personal experiences with child birth help when writing this part?

The funniest thing on earth is a dominant man at his child’s birth. They want to play it cool but it kills them to have no control. A lot of the birthing scene came from my own experience and the part where Damian rubbed his hand on Lydia’s thigh is a great example.

When you are writing, do you have any rituals? Any specific music that you listen to while you write?

First, I always read the previous chapters I worked on, edit them, and then go from there. It puts me back into the grove of the story. I MUST listen to music when I write but it varies and depends on my mood. I jump from Irish/Scottish flute, bagpipes, and drums to hard rock. I love Buckcherry!

What projects are you working on now and are Damian and Lydia involved?

My next book will be out at the first of the year. It will have a short scene at Club El Diablo but the rest of the book takes place at a private location. The story involves a cop, a contemporary Shibari artist, and human trafficking. It’s a ménage and much more in depth than my previous four Club novellas. Two Doms for Angel will be a full length novel.

Are you reading any good books right now?

I’m trying very hard to but it’s difficult during new book release week (NBRW). I just finished Beyond Shame by Kit Rocha and loved it. My TBR pile is filling up my eReader. Oh and I have a sneak peek at yours but I’m not telling anyone, promise.

For all your followers out there, what can they do to help you make “Domination in Pink” even more successful?

Please review the book on Amazon, B&N, and All Romance Ebooks. I take the good reviews with the bad so don’t let your opinion stop you from commenting. The more reviews shows that more people are reading.

Thank you Hazel for a wonderful interview!

Teaser Time!

Here is a section from my novella that will set your heart racing!

Chris pulled Sara back towards campus to get to his bike. She was trying hard to keep up with him. Sara could only make on step to his two long graceful strides. She felt herself stumble after only one block of this maddening pace. Chris turned around, grabbed her around the waist and hoisted her over his shoulder effortlessly. Sara squealed and struggled. Chris swatted her hard on her rear. “Hey, what was that for? You don't need to carry me you know” Sara huffed as he jostled her around on his shoulder to find a comfortable place for her.

“I know that I don't need to carry you, but I am impatient tonight. I really need to get you back to my loft. Besides, it pleases me to carry you.” Chris came to an abrupt halt near the edge of the parking lot, far away from the main campus. He let go of his hold over her thighs, pulling her body down from her perch. She slid down his shoulder, her shirt getting bunched up on the way down. Her belly was exposed to the cold autumn air and she gasped when Chris touched her skin with his hands.

“Fuck, your hands are so cold, Chris!” she screamed as she tried to scramble away.

Chris's eyes seemed to change from anger to a lust in a millisecond. Then the anger was back, replaced by something else. It was as if she could see a mask fall over his eyes, an unknown mood filling his soul. Sara could only use one word to describe it - predator.

Chris grabbed Sara's neck, yanking her in close to his body. The action was so fierce and powerful, Sara gasped for air when her body slammed into his.

“I warned you not to curse little one. This time, I will have to punish you,” Chris snapped.
“Here...right now?” Sara squeaked, her face drawn up in fear.

“Oh yeah, right now. Turn around and put your hands on the seat of the bike.”
Sara knew that they were far enough away from the main road that no one was going to just wander over to them any minute, but yet they were still out in the open. There were so many places that a voyeur could hide and observe Sara's first taste of punishment.

“I won't repeat myself Sara,” Chris snarled, staring at her with those dark eyes. She could almost feel his eyes appraising her as if she was a juicy steak. Sara slowly turned around, placing her hands on the seat of his bike. Chris put his hands under her thighs, pulling backwards so that her rear slammed into him. Sara realized that she was in a very compromising position. Her ass was held up in the air, vulnerable to a very, very angry man.

I am Hazel St. James - author of BDSM and erotica works of art.  I am a kinkster at heart...love being a submissive in the bedroom and everything that it represents.  I would love for you to give one of my novels a try! 
My novella "Just One Night" will be released November 1st.  It is the prequel to the "Learning to Let Go" series.  I wanted to jump right in with a BDSM novella.  I want everyone to see the hot and steamy sex scenes that are roaming in my brain!
 "Just One Night" is a story about Sara, a college student from the Midwest that gets a crash course education on being a submissive from fellow accounting student Chris Lake. Chris doesn't fit Sara's typical boyfriend analogy. She soon finds herself extremely turned on by his dominant personality...and he leads her on an exciting adventure where she learns more about herself than she realized was there.
It was hard to focus on my novella today because I have a different bad boy that keeps popping into my head...still not sure on a name for him yet. He is a blond muscular god with tribal tattoos on his upper arms and he is extremely dominant. He will be one of the main characters in my next book. I think he might be trouble for me! Hmm, he really likes using ice as punishment...
My blog is currently "under construction".  I will keep working on it every free second that I am not editing my book until I love it!
