Playing Our Own Game … and Keeping Our Headphones On

Tale as old as time …

Lady Smut

Ovid actually wrote about game many, many years ago. He'd have mentioned headphones if he could have. Ovid actually wrote about game many, many years ago. He’d have mentioned headphones if he could have.

Long ago, I would have been able to tell you the number to the pay phone in the center of the local mall, in the town where I grew up. This was back when there was such a thing as a group of pay phones in the center of the mall. In fact, I think the mall itself is gone now. But at one point, I had that number memorized.


At that point in time, long ago, I had a lot of people rolling up to me to ask for my phone number. It’s hard for me to say that; it sounds kind of immodest. I don’t think I was getting any more attention than any other woman moving unattended through the world. I do have a fairly high…

Of Wings and Women

Shoutout to the wings who help us be fly.🙂

Zig Ziglar had this to say about the fine art of having it all: “You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help other people get what they want.”

He probably wasn’t talking about being a wingwoman, but his message about service definitely applies.

What’s a wingwoman? Glad you asked.

The wingwoman accompanies a friend, either male or female, to a target-rich environment, to facilitate the friend’s meeting other people for fun, romance, and perhaps sexytimes.

A wingwoman’s job isn’t easy, although the best practitioners make it look that way. The real virtuosos are hard to find. In my time, I have known exactly three, two of whom have moved far enough away that I can no longer call on them when I need support.

I do think the requisite skills can be taught. It…

You, Tarzan; Me, Conflicted

How do you solve a problem like Tarzan?

An impressionable girl's first Tarzan. As I recall, he was quite articulate and well spoken. An impressionable girl’s first Tarzan. As I recall, he was quite articulate and well spoken.

I’m coming home from the RWA National Conference as I write this, and after several days of immersion in the industry I love, I’m asking myself tough questions and making big plans.

When can I finish that extensive set of edits?

Which of the many projects in my to-do list should move up to the on-deck circle?

And most importantly: should I go to see Tarzan?

I want to be okay with Tarzan. Hell, I want to love Tarzan. I’ve always wanted that.

But let’s be honest with each other. Tarzan is kind of a racially complicated story.

Tarzan has had my attention since I was a little girl parked in front of Saturday morning cartoons. That sort of adventure spoke to me for some reason. I’m not sure if I was…

Happy weekend, sexy people! Learned colleague Madeline Iva has allowed me to stage a Sexy Saturday takeover so I can hit you with a lick of excerpty goodness from my novella, “Passing Through.” It’s one of 22 stories featured in the box set, Hero to Obey, from Blushing Books. Joining me in the collection are Sierra Cartwright, Selena Kitt, Desiree Holt, along with Lady Smut guests Tabitha Black and Lee Savino. If you like your stories kinky and your heroes in uniform, you want to get involved with this big box.

My contribution, “Passing Through,” is a femdom-themed story featuring bar owner Gigi Deane and Noah Monroe, the former Army Ranger who’s spending the summer working as her barback. Gigi likes her men tall, hot, and obedient, and Noah certainly…

The Magic Word Is ‘Now’: A Glance at Femdom in Erotic Romance

Don’t call it a comeback. Femdom has been here for years.

And why not? Female dominance has a great deal to offer erotic romance. Next week, on the release day for my own femdom-themed story, “Passing Through,” I will devote a great deal of time to exploring what’s hot about the woman on top. For now, consider the obvious benefits. Femdom books focus on the woman in charge. She might be at the top of the food chain at work. She might be the leader of her single-parent household. Maybe she’s redefining herself, and by extension, the world surrounding her. Whatever her situation, the femdom heroine has a lot in common with the increasingly kink-curious reader, the modern woman who finds herself in control of more things now than…

Hero to Obey … Deal to Love

Hero to Obey cover image

Want to hear some great news? I’m contributing to Hero to Obey, a box set of 22 stories featuring military heroes and loads of kink. It’s a collaborative effort unlike any I’ve ever worked on, and I’m proud to be a part of it!

The box set releases on June 28, but you can preorder your copy right now for just 99 pennies. You can find all the links over on the shop page.

Need convincing? I get it. Times are hard. Who knows what you might do with 99 cents?

But here are five reasons you should go ahead and drop that money on this box set.

1. Hot military men. What is it about military men? Is it their code of honor? Is it the air of command? Maybe it’s their well honed physiques. That’s my guess, anyway. Whatever the appeal is, the military man is very well represented in these 22 stories. You are sure to find someone to make you very tingly indeed.

2. A veritable smorgasbord of kink. Left cold by the same old kinky stories? Fear not. Hero to Obey covers a huge spectrum of naughtiness. From my femdom story (more below) to some hot historicals to some splendidly dark capture erotica, the set covers a wide range of wicked temptations. You will definitely find something you enjoy. (Especially if you happen to enjoy spanking.) You might also discover something new to tickle your fancy.

3. Femdom. The women are usually in charge in my stories, but not in quite this way! In “Passing Through,” the heroine, Gigi, owns a beachside bar and is crushing hard on her barback, a former Army Ranger. She wants him on his knees and at her service. And who wouldn’t? Whose heart doesn’t race just a little at the thought of having a man at the height of physical and mental fitness under her exclusive control? Who wouldn’t want a man like that at her command? That’s certainly a thought to sleep on, right?

4. It’s so … big! You’re not getting 22 short stories here. These are nice hefty novellas, weighing in between 15,000 and 35,000 words. Oh, yes, my friends. You’re welcome.

5. The outstanding company. My fellow contributors include some real luminaries in the world of erotic romance. Sierra Cartwright is among us, as is Desiree Holt. Paige Tyler and Alta Hensley are both here. There’s something for kink-loving fans, and there’s plenty of opportunity to find a new author to love.
Now’s your chance. Click on over to get your preorder on. Then get ready for a very hot summer!
