Sex with a Stranger Anyone?



I'm thrilled to announce that all three books in the A Bit of Strange Trilogy written by myself and Natalie Dae (Harlem Dae) are now available for purchase. 

Strangers who share the touch of heated skin, the gasps of delight joined bodies create and the bliss a moment of ecstasy generates, are bound by an invisible thread that is as strong as it is vulnerable.

But can that thread turn to more, become a force to be reckoned with, the foundation of a beautiful experience and a future where dominance and submission become a part of life?

That’s something Isabelle wants to know, wants to experience, but is her new man up for the job? She has very definite fantasies, a particular flavour of strange that hits her spot. Only time will tell if their next daring interlude will pave the way for so much more than a brief encounter.

So to get you in the mood for this deliciously filthy set of novellas here is smooch from Beauty and Pain


He kissed me—long and hard and oh so bloody toe-curling—then let me go, abruptly, as if I’d given him a shock.

I cocked my head and stared at him, disguising my surprise.

“I need to get away from you, woman,” he said, holding his hands up. “Because if I don’t, I’ll spend all day fucking you on this train. We may well go to Swansea and back and we wouldn’t notice.”

Relieved he hadn’t meant something else entirely, I laughed. “That wouldn’t be so bad, would it?”

“No, and that’s the problem. I have an important meeting today. I can’t miss it. And believe me, if I could, I would. You’re far too tempting.”

“Delilah to your Samson?”

“Something like that.”

He stared at me for what seemed a long time, and I kept a steady gaze, unwilling to let it waver. I had a feeling he was once again trying to prove I was a sub—to make me look down or at least shift my eyes left or right.

He wouldn’t win this battle.

Studio Orders and Writing a BDSM Historical

A little over a week ago, Studio Orders (Gin & Jazz 5) was released here at Totally Bound. It's the first installment of the series that doesn't feature the main character, Jack Stone. Why? Well, lucky Jack has found his true love and is most happily living ever after with him. But along the way, Jack met some wonderful men that all deserved to find happiness too. Two of them - his studio boss Vincent Franklin, and his driver, Juan - were always there for him when things were at their darkest. In Studio Orders, Juan and Vincent find their way to one another and discover they are the perfect balance to the other.

Vincent practices sadomasochism and is quite dominant. Juan knows nothing of those types of things - he's never even heard of them. But he aches to please his older boss that he's fallen so deeply in love with, and has always derived the greatest pleasure in his life when he could serve someone. Since the Gin & Jazz series is set in the 1920's, there was some additional research I needed to do to incorporate the BDSM elements to the story. The acronym for bondage, discipline and sadomasochism wasn't coined until the late sixties, the actual origin being unclear. When writing Studio Orders I had to be careful not to clutter it with terms or practices that wouldn't have been in use during that time period.

One thing that I incorporated - as I love rope bondage - was kinbaku, or kinbaku-bi (the beauty of tight binding). Most people would be more likely to recognize the Japanese art of binding as shibari. I could go into a long dissertation as to why there are two different terms, and what they denote precisely, but what it comes down to is binding the submissive. But again, the term shibari wasn't used to refer to that practice in the 1920's - anyone referring to the art of Japanese binding would have called it kinbaku. In the following scene, Juan and Vincent are having their first real session as lovers. Having learned of the practice from a Japanese man, Vincent had purchased a proper rope to use on someone someday. Juan is that someone.



Watching as Juan readied himself delighted him in a way that had been lost to him for a long time. He had wrongly assumed that the only thing that brought him pleasure from binding and disciplining a submissive were the acts themselves. Clearly, he had been wrong. Sharing it with someone who meant so much to him gave it true meaning.

Vincent allowed himself to enjoy the view. He wanted to experience the moment and wanted the same for Juan. Rushing through a session didn’t provide the same benefit as allowing it to unfold, embracing each nuance as it occurred. Vincent noted Juan gradually tensing, his teeth clenching as they always did when he was afraid or holding something in. 

In time.

Vincent waited a little longer than he normally would to give Juan a chance to deal with what was happening to him. He tore his gaze from the sight of Juan’s brazenly exposed body. It was still unclear to him whether he would do any better at holding back an orgasm than Juan. He hadn’t brought himself to a climax since before he’d met with Saul. And he’d been taunted by having a naked, willing Juan by his side for the past twenty-four hours.

Vincent was impressed by how freely Juan had opened up to him, and how he kept himself still, waiting for the next command. Opening the door of his mahogany armoire, Vincent then pulled out a very long coil of softened jute fibre rope. It had come from the Orient and had been quite costly. There had never been anyone that he’d wanted to use it on before. Not until that moment.

As he approached the bed with the half inch thick cord, he detected a fleeting glance from Juan. His boy had to be overflowing with curiosity. Sighing, Vincent was once again struck by how honoured he was to be the one to initiate Juan into the joys of submission—to teach him how to free himself through discipline and binding. 

Vincent had spent a lot of time learning various rope tying techniques and patterns over the years. He had a specific position he wanted to tie Juan in for the first time that he penetrated him. As he drew closer to the bed, Vincent noticed that the twitching in Juan’s jaw had increased dramatically in the space of a few minutes. As excited as Vincent was, it was his responsibility to coax Juan safely through his first time being restrained. 

He had the coil of rope slung over his left arm. He leant down over Juan and stroked his forehead, soothing him. 

“Because this is our first session, I need to make sure you are doing okay. In the future, I will be more attuned to your body so we will only discuss what goes on between us when we conclude our play. Talk to me, Juan.”

 Juan swallowed a few times as if he had no spit left in his mouth. He looked in Vincent’s eyes.

“I’m all right, sir. I want this.”

Vincent attempted to keep his expression as blank as possible. It was vital that he be there for Juan and not distract him with whatever Vincent might have going on inside of himself. He didn’t want Juan to lose his focus. 

He caressed Juan’s forehead a little more, then straightened. He looped the twenty three foot long rope around a large solid wood ornament at the top of his headboard. Taking the two free ends, he began the process of carefully binding Juan’s legs and arms to one another, maintaining the posture of him spread wide. Wordlessly, he placed Juan’s limbs the way he wished them to be. He marvelled at Juan’s willingness to be manipulated by him, his lack of resistance.

It had been a while since he had completed the tie he was using on Juan, so it took him close to twenty minutes to achieve the aesthetics he desired. Once he had accomplished it to his satisfaction, he stood back to allow himself the pleasure of viewing Juan helpless and displayed before him. Even the task of working the rope around his lover’s form had been erotic. But the final result was breath-taking.

Juan’s lower legs were bent to their extreme and bound tightly to his thighs. His arms had been encased with additional ropes, trapping them alongside his limbs. The cords were tied in an evenly circled pattern, and it all led to the headboard to keep him anchored. Already Vincent looked forward to the marks the restrictive binds would leave on Juan’s flesh once the ropes were removed. 

Even though Juan had not resisted him in any way as he’d tied him, Vincent noted the cords of his muscles working beneath his skin. Vincent recalled the first time he had been bound. The instinctual response was to fight the imprisonment. The freedom came through embracing it.

Torn Between Cowboys




Having two historical westerns published with Totally Bound is a wonderful feeling, especially as I’ve seen interest in my debut novella Desire in Deadwood pick up since the release of Harlot at the Homestead. Desire in Deadwood was my debut release and I’m very fond of it. Sound foolish? Maybe, but I put a lot into the creation of the characters, plot and setting and when an author does that, it’s easy to get attached to them.

But this got me thinking. Do I prefer Nate Hamilton or Kenan Duggan?

They’re both tall, dark and handsome. They’re both cowboys. They both work hard. They love their women fiercely and suffer as a result of their love and passion.

Nate Hamilton doesn’t come across as a very nice character at the start. He’s dark and dominant and wants to punish Evelyn Campbell for hurting him. How does he do this? By offering the destitute widow money to be his own private whore. Reader responses interested me when they said that they really didn’t like him…at first.
 

Then there’s Kenan Duggan. He was madly in love with Catherine Montgomery, his fiancĂ©e, when she disappeared. He believed she was dead and it took him a long time to come to terms with his grief. She has been gone two years when she suddenly turns up at his homestead. To say he’s surprised, is an understatement, and he’s pretty annoyed too.
 
 

These turbulent beginnings make for exciting conflict and passionate reunions and the chemistry between the characters has the opportunity to sizzle. Of Harlot at the Homestead, one reader said: Both Kenan and Catherine have amazing chemistry. It practically comes up off the pages for the reader to see and feel. And despite the secrets and issues the couple faces in this short tale, you find yourself rooting for them to get through it no matter what.

And about Desire in Deadwood a reader said: The chemistry between Nate and Evelyn sizzles from the very first page and I loved how the story opens with heat and steam and passion from the first line. A hot, fun read.

It was important for me that the men are strong, powerful and intense. But I also wanted them to have a vulnerability, so that they appeal on all levels. We human beings are complex creatures and I tried to make that to come across to the reader. Have I succeeded? Well, if you’ve read the books, let me know. If not, they’re available now. I would love to hear what you think and to find out whether you prefer Nate or Kenan.

Until next month…


Hugs,

Molly xxx
