The Taming of Molly Jenkins

Synopsis

Russell Bennett hadn’t met the right woman yet. He’d been with more women than he could count. He considered himself sexually uninhibited and well versed in BDSM as a Dom. He could never consider himself a submissive. That was until he met Molly Jenkins a sophisticated Mistress and trained Domme.
Their attraction is instant and he joins her at her private dungeon. There he experiences what an amazing Mistress she is. He’ll submit once and then make it his business to tame the beautiful Molly Jenkins.
He believes every woman will submit to one man. He’ll prove that to the head strong Domme.  

Excerpt

I had chance to get a good look at her.  Her porcelain skin mesmerized me and my need to touch her was overwhelming. I’d do whatever she wanted of me, tonight.
“Whatever you want my Mistress,” I replied causing that little sexy smile to reappear on her red lips. She ran her fingers up my chest until she was upon my nipples. She pinched both causing my cock to twinge. She pinched harder her grip hard and slightly painful. She released them and let the blood rush to the tips and then licked them hungrily. My cock rose to her delicious tongue. One of her hands boldly slid down and grasped my hardening cock.
“Mmm, you’re getting hard and I like what I’m feeling. I bet you’re a great fuck.”
“I am and tonight my sexy goodness you will find out just how great I am,” I said running a finger over her lips. Her red lipstick reddened the tip, and I licked it off, making her smile.
“And you’re sure of yourself. We’ll see won’t we?”
“Yes,” I said moving closed to her lips. “I am and right now I’m anxious to see what you have in store for me.”
“I take it you’re not shy. Do you have any objections to fucking in front of others?”
“No, do you?”
She smiled smartly and shook her head slightly, the smirk on her lips getting wider. I’d done it all and was a little bit of an exhibitionist. She was a professional Domme, this was her forte not mine. I wondered how comfortable she really was with the group scene. She grabbed my balls.
“Damn, women you could be a little gentler.” I grabbed her wrist.
“Mmm, my pet we’ve only just begun.”

The Wait, Britt' Undoing




Synopsis

Mack Hargrove never waited for anything. He was an impatient man. When he met Britt England he wasn't sure what to make of the pretty blonde. She came across as too self-assured and confident. Mack liked his women, needy, submissive and well trained sexually.

It was rumored that the twenty eight year old was untried a virgin. That piqued Mack's curiosity and burned at his brain; he hadn't a challenge in years when it came to women.

He turned on the charm and sought out Britt only to find she'd make him play the waiting game. He'd turn the tables; he'd take what he wanted and walk away. He thought he'd won.

The wait had begun for Mack Hargrove. For the first time in his life he couldn't have what he wanted. 

Excerpt  

It was easier to get down and use his tongue to bring her to her first orgasm. His penetration would go easier then. He lowered his head and kissed a trail of wet kisses down her torso then parted the lips to her pussy revealing he soft little nub. He bent his head and let his tongue lick the round rosebud softly and slowly.
“Oh my God,” she said, her voice small as he saw her fingers clench the sheets.
He smiled, he had her, and now he intended to drive her crazy. Soft light kisses followed a heady suck of her clit. Then fast flicks back and forth. It swelled. He smiled broader as his cock grew harder. He let his tongue sink deep into her and his breathing increased, he couldn’t believe the excitement running through his veins. Twinges of arousal ran up and down his aching cock, but he’d hold himself back. He licked at her more, drank from her when her pussy gushed and flooded his mouth. But she hadn’t cum yet. She was close as she now clung to his hair pushing him deeper into her. Her breath increased, her heart thudded in her breasts and her soft moans became louder. Every part of her being was centered in her wet cunt, he could smell it, feel it and soon those tiny ripples inside of her would tantalize his tongue.
Mack ached for relief and wanted to bury his cock deep. But he had no choice but to be patient and let her orgasm. Once her body experienced release and she was momentarily mindless he could push through her virgin barrier. How tight she’d be around his cock. Now his hardness began to have a life of its own and he needed to get to fucking her soon.
Suddenly she gasped and her body ached. “Oh fuck,” she screamed. Oh, yes, yes,” she continued. “Mack oh fuck I’m cuming.”

About Ethan Radcliff


I've been writing since I was a kid. I love creating and tried my hand at art, not bad but not good enough. A guy's gotta eat. Through high school I wrote erotic stories, kept them in a notebook, let a few of my girlfriends read them. Yeah, played football, baseball, but my brain never stopped thinking of sex. I guess we think about it all the time.
Been on face book for a while never did anything interesting when I was on until I started to see all the writers and then some poets posting their erotic prose. Men who were writing erotic romance and stories, I knew it was my time to get out the old note book and throw on some poems. Some are old and some are new, the ones about BDSM are newer. In high school or college I wasn't on that train of thought. I see a picture it sets me off. A see an attractive women it sets me off. The jiggle of a full ass or heavy breasts, get me going. Yeah, my mind always is on a beautiful face or body.

Author Spotlight: Khul Waters





The Jazzy World of E's Bookshelf Author Spotlight is on Erotic Romance author Khul Waters. Waters is the author behind the books, The Training of Kate, A Master's Dilemma, and the upcoming To Meet her Needs, to name a few.  He has written on and off for 45 years, but it wasn't until his late forties that he started to write more. He began writing short stories and poetry to capture the relationship in his life, a topic he discusses more in his interview below.  The subject of a dominant/submissive relationship is a focus in his writings, but not in the typical sense people think about. It's more about the loving relationship between the two. It's time to let the spotlight shine on Khul Waters.

Khul Waters' Biography

I am a 65­year­old Australian and was a high school teacher for most of my professional life. Born and raised in Sydney, I have taught in many places in eastern Australia. I have also taught in England and Hong Kong for extended periods of time.
I write in the genre of erotic romance in order to express the joy I find in life and in love. I began with short stories and poetry that mostly seemed to focus on one theme: the nature of love between men and women. Specifically, I am intrigued by the nature of Dom/submissive relationships. Not the stereotypical leather and whips type but the need for many men to take a dominating role in lovemaking and for many women to take a submissive role. My stories feature this pre­occupation and have been published by eXtasy Press.


An Interview with Khul Waters

You’ve spent a majority of you professional career as a teacher, was writing something that you always did in your free time or was it something that you started focusing on more recently?

I have been writing off and on for 45 years but with a rather long ‘off in the middle. I began by writing poetry, when I was a young and undoubtedly angsty in my late teens and, sadly, into my early twenties, but didn’t write any stories till I was in my late forties. This coincided with the end of my failing marriage. As a full time teacher I did not have a great deal of spare time so it was always a hobby rather than a full time occupation.

Your books explore dominant/submissive relationships, but not in the stereotypical way people think about. What is it about the subject that inspires you as an author?
First, I have this preoccupation because I came to realize that I AM a dominant or Dom. That is, when making love, I tend to take the leading role and control the experience for my partner and for her pleasure. This understanding about being a natural Dom did not come to me till I was in my late 40s. I have always been a person who thinks about who I am and what I am, even when I had little awareness of what a Dom and a sub were. I started to consider my natural reactions and look around me, especially online, to see who else was like me. I joined online worlds where Doms/subs and Masters/slaves were role played and I tested what I knew I was against what they role played. I realized that I was not the stereotypical Dom. This realization just helped me to refine my understanding of what I was. About this time I met a wonderful woman online, the Kate in my Journey Into Submission trilogy. She was a submissive. As our relationship grew online, I began to learn about and develop this Dom side of me. Later, when we began our life together, I developed this side of me even further.While I was exploring D/s online worlds, I started writing again, some poetry and some scenarios. These scenarios were not really even short stories, but situations in which a Dom and a sub interacted. Increasingly they were reflections of what Kate and I were sharing. The poems, also, were expressions of the relationship Kate and I shared. The poem below shows this relationship far better than my words now can do...
Our Love Is My Mantra

I am yours, my girl.

Humbly, freely, I do accept that honour

and accept the honour of your love,

given freely back to me.

I think we have always shared this love!

Through time’s twistings

it has been there –

two faces of one coin –

sometimes corporally split asunder,

but our one soul fused,

forever linked,

even when forever searching.

Time has taught me much,

but first and strongest

it has shown me that we are one...

were one...

will be one.

I love you my, girl.

Even back when I did not know you,

my part of our soul searched

for its completeness.

Now we are one,

I can love again –

joyously,

exquisitely,

gratefully.

I can love again –

with all that I was,

with all that I am, and

with all that I will become.

My girl, I am yours

Because, always, that is what I have been

and because, always, that is what I will be.

In this I have no power to say yea or nay.

I love you beyond reason.

I love you beyond passion.

I love you beyond will

for together we are

one destiny fulfilled.

While we were living our love in real life, I felt a strong need to express that story in an extended written form and so began to write a novel about the kind of love we shared. This story has been re-released recently as three novellas by eXtasy Books.  guess what I wanted to do was to show readers that Domination and submission is, or can be, lived by people like them, normal people living maybe in the home next door. I wanted to refute the image that it is something weirdos or mentally
unbalanced people do in seedy clubs or home dungeons by showing them a love story that was real and deeply intimate and mutually caring. So, I was inspired to write about loving D/s relationships because I was living one and wanted people to truly understand that this kind of a relationship is something to be sought after.

Your newest book, To Meet Her Needs, is coming out soon, what can you tell us about it?

To Meet Her Needs (TMHN) will be released by eXtasy Books on Sept. 15 somewhat different to Journey in that both leading characters are only minimally aware of D/s and how it will express itself in their relationship. Yet, there are many points of comparison as there are strong links to my real world life in this story as well: Mark like Miles is a teacher; both men are separated/divorced; both female leads are strong, intelligent women who are in close touch with their sensuality and sexuality; and the ocean/water is a major focus in their lives.

TMHN traces the life of Mark as he tries to deal with feelings of guilt over what he sees as his failure to be the husband you ought to have been. When he meets Ingrid, his natural tendencies to dominate are extended by Ingrid’s exploration of her submissive side. This mutual sharing of complementary sexual needs is seen in the excerpt below...

As she sat there on his shaking thighs, he used her fingers to make her arouse herself. She gasped as he closed them across the base of her most sensitive spot. Then she gasped again as he squeezed her fingers gently together. Her clitoris throbbed hard and the waves from this rippled up inside her. Ingrid’s eyes closed as she focused on what he was making her do to herself.

Slowly, he drew her orgasm upwards. Ingrid could feel her pulse fluttering in her stretched throat. She could feel her body pushing up and down onto her own fingers. Far away, she could hear the soft groans of a woman being tortured exquisitely and lovingly.

From deep inside herself she felt the unstoppable power of a flood tide rising and surging into every part of her nervous system. It came from so deep inside her that panic filled her and fled before it.

...her awareness of the world was lost in a surge of release. She was no longer sitting on her lover’s lap. She was no longer a person. She was inside herself. She was stroked from spasm to spasm. She became those spasms of release. She was pure joy surging inside herself.


To Meet Her Needs is going to be your fifth release; do you still get nervous releasing a new book?

Not really. I still get excited though. It is a long hard road from idea to publication with many difficult decisions to make about plot and characters and wording. When your creation is about to be released, for me it is a time of quiet excitement and pride because I have overcome all of the problems and obstacles.

In addition to writing books, you also write poetry as well. Do you prefer one to the other? Or do they both offer you inspiration when it comes to writing?

I love writing in both forms, but choose one or the other depending on what I am trying to achieve. Prose is wonderful for conveying width. It is excellent if I wish to describe the slow building up of, say, a loving relationship or the building of tension within a story. I can create complexity in my characters’ personalities because prose allows me the time to show many examples of how they react.
Poetry, however, allows me to distil the essence of a moment in time or of a feeling or of a thought process. Poetry, if I can successfully find the key words, allows me to give an intense insight into what I am writing about. Such insights can't easily be stretched over the 'wordiness' of prose without losing that intensity.

When you’re not writing, how to you like to spend your free time?

Laughs... “Free time? What is this thing of which you speak?” OK, well I do get some free time, I guess, but as a writer it isn’t a lot. I am fundamentally a family person. The people I love get what little spare time I have because they deserve this.

What has been your favorite part of writing and publishing books?


I would say the thing which I really appreciate about being a writer of stories and poetry is it allows me to chat with readers who love the stories I tell and the poems I write. I don’t mean by this last point ego. It’s just that we all have stories to tell about the ways we do lead or should lead our lives and live our love. When readers tell me that the lives of my characters arouse them or make them weepy or inspire them to alter their own lives, this is powerful validation of my decision to tell my stories about loving intimacy and D/s. This dialogue with readers is wonderful because they also talk about their own relationships and what makes them strong and enduring or what caused them to fracture and break up. As I mentioned previously, this thinking about who and what I am and assessing these things against what others are is a process I have been doing for many decades. Talking with readers is a great way to continue this process.

You have received some high praise for your writing, how do you feel about the
reception your books have received?


I am a story-teller. So, if my stories are liked and if the messages within those stories encourage people to live their lives more passionately and to strengthen their relationships, then I am very content. It is also gratifying if the story I have told is seen as being both well told and worth the telling.

In 10 words or less, tell readers why they should read your books.


Ordinary, flawed people share extraordinary loving D/s intimacy.

Is there anything you would like to tell your fans or readers new to you?

Go to the teaser page on my webpage and read some of the excerpts! There you will find samples of deep love and passion, of trust and intimacy, and of love being lived fully. I hope you feel aroused and moved and uplifted by my words there.

Cover Reveal: Big Game: Hunted Love #1 by Aden Lowe



Title: Big Game: Hunted Love 1

Author: Aden Lowe

Release Date: September 15, 2014

Genre:  Western Romance


RECOMMENDED FOR AGES EIGHTEEN AND UP DUE TO EXPLICIT SEXUAL SITUATIONS, AND STRONG LANGUAGE


Synopsis
When a legendary predator decides prize horses should be on his menu, Kate takes the advice of her neighbor ranchers and hires a big game hunter to track the mountain lion and remove the threat. The hunter arrives to take up the trail, but instead of the seasoned older man she expects, he's young and impossibly sexy.

Freshly back from deployment to Afghanistan as a special forces operative, Jakob needs to clear his head of the horrors of war. When his uncle is injured, Jakob steps in to fulfill the older man's commitment to hunt down a mountain lion on the other side of the state. The prospect of several days in the wilderness with only his horses and dogs for company sounds like the ideal opportunity. 
Excerpt 
A faint noise drew Jakob from the twilight that precedes waking, straight into full alert. Unsure what disturbed him, he lay still and allowed his eyes to open a bare slit. Just his luck that mountain lion would be prowling through camp. Unable to spot anything out of place, he sat up, careful not to move too quickly and get his head injury in an uproar again.

Splashing, louder than the stream flowing over the rocks, drew his attention. Fascination froze him in place for an instant, forcing him to just watch. At the creek, Kate straightened and squeezed water from her hair, then flipped it back to swing down her naked back. Water droplets clung to her pale skin like crystals, refracting the light and mesmerizing him.

She half-turned to retrieve something from the ground, revealing the curve of one breast. The sound of Jakob’s agonized groan must have carried, because she straightened and turned to face him, moving too quickly, and lost her balance. Head wound forgotten, he leaped up and dove across the small camp area in an attempt to catch her before she could fall into the icy water. She recovered just as he reached her, and stood facing him, breathing hard. Something in her face had changed and for the first time since meeting her, Jakob felt as if she actually saw him. The unreachable Ice Queen was gone, and in her place...

About the Author

As an English major in college, I took a summer job as a proofreader for a small town newspaper, and got hooked on editing. I also worked my way through college training horses. After graduation, I landed a job for a small independent editing firm, and stayed there for 15 yrs. An old friend, Lucian, approached me to edit his special fiction project, and I got hooked. After an insane few months editing his Dom Wars series for him, Lucian convinced me I should try my hand at writing as well. I’m his co-author for Round Six, the final Dom Wars installment, and we will co-write the White Knight Academy series as well. And in Sept 2014, I’ll release my debut solo work, an Erotic Western with BDSM elements, “Big Game: A Hunted Love Novella”. In addition, I have a military series in the planning stages.

Synopsis:

To judge and execute. That is Ruin's power and desire. But Ruin's memory is empty of how he came to be here on Earth and why. After saving Isadore-- a neuroscientist living in the swamps of Louisiana-- from a Ruin soon discovers that judging and executing wicked humans while linked to such a difficult and beautiful woman who can't help but involve herself in every aspect of his business, is proving to be more sexual predator, she volunteers to help him. difficult than judging the world.







Author Bio


My name is Lucian Bane, and I'm an Ineffable Dom. That just means, do yourself a favor and please don't try to fit me into categories. Complicated Dom, Intricate Dom, or Confounding Dom work too.
I don't want a woman I can break, or overpower, or exercise my dominance over. I want a woman I can come undone with.

I want a woman I can jump off the cliff with into that abyss of holy hell, this is beyond me, beyond my control. I think there are many men like myself, and I hope my writing will be a map for them. (A map for women as well, to let them know Doms like this exist.) I want to challenge them to go for the complete power exchange with a woman, but don't be a coward and not give the same that they demand or expect. Consider that when you give one hundred percent of yourself to a person, there is no more of you to give away. You now belong to them the way they belong to you.

Inner Doms need a master to train them. I once bowed to my Dom's reckless and tireless desires, but when I gained control, he bowed to my will. The transformation made me into what I am today. What many would call an Ineffable Dom. But its equal term in the Vanilla world, in my opinion, is a real man.

Congratulations on the upcoming release of your first book, The Spice of Life: Book 1: The Transformation, what inspired it and was this something you wanted to write about for awhile?


I always wanted to write, but my parents pushed me to a different career path. I believe things happen for a reason, truly, as I was destined to write about about my past.

You do have book blog, that includes The Spice of Life and Jake’s Chronicles. How was it transitioning from writing your book blog to writing a more structured book? 

I actually "blogged" the book, I had a script already designed for the book, so it was actually in reverse. It was easy as most of it was my personal histories.

The Spice of Life is going to be a three part series. What made you decide to go with three books in telling Jake’s Journey? Did you want it setup in a three act structure?

I just happened to like trilogies, and I designed it initially that way. However, I just recently chopped book 1 in half, so now it's a 4 part book. Additionally, I have developed the characters so much, it may be even a 5 or 6 part series.

There has been an increase of more authors coming out and writing about a BDSM lifestyle. What would you say sets your book apart from others?
Mine is real and powerful. I've been in BDSM since late 90s. So I have more of a history than most. As well as I still live the lifestyle.

What do you hope readers take away from your book?

Give everyone a chance. Don't judge. We aren't built to be with just one.

You have a strong online presence using various social media platforms, what would you say are the advantages and drawbacks of using social media as an author?

Advantages are obvious, you can reach a large crowd very quickly with the internet, as well as be efficient at it. The drawbacks, tons of fakes and want to be accounts.

Indie authors have a grassroots approach to promoting their books. You yourself have the TSOL Vixens, that helps get your name out there on Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites. How do you feel having that support group of fans has helped you not only in a promotion aspect, but as an author as well?

I feel that once you learn the message, and become a TSOLVixen, attracting more people is easy, and helps promote the work and myself as an author. And we have grown organically to that message.

What has been your favorite part about writing TSOL?

Knowing other authors and meeting new people, like minded. I'm very amazed and flattered as how many people have helped, just to help.

When you're not writing, what do you like to do for fun?

Eat, socialize, watch history channel, poker tours, coach and play baseball.

Who are some of your favorite authors?

Anne Rice, I don't reach much fiction

In 10 words or less, can you tell readers why they should read your book?

Discover the making of a TRUE sexually addicted Dom

Is there anything you would like to say to your fans and readers new to your work?

I love meeting new people, read the blogs, all of them, then tell me if you are addicted to #tsol.

New Release: Empathy by Ker Dukey


Empathy
by 
Ker Dukey

 Amazon | B&N | iBooks | Smashwords | Kobo


Synopsis

Blake
I am a brother
I am a police detective
I am a contract killer
I don’t want to love
I don’t want to feel
I don’t want … EMPATHY.

They say some people are born with decreased activity in the front central lobe causing them a deficiency in empathy. Maybe that’s true about me but whether I was born this way or created in a moment of evil, empathy was something I didn’t possess until her green eyes met mine in the mirror and I couldn’t take her life.
I didn’t want to feel, didn’t want this woman in my life complicating how I lived but she was there at every turn. Sent to haunt me for my sins. Her light so bright she provoked a shadow from everyone she touched. When a job turns bad quickly altering my life forever I’m forced to feel. When nothing is making sense I’m forced to face truths I never would recover from. When life drowns you in its cruelty you don’t know which way the current will drag you or who you’ll become once you re-surface.



Melody:

I was a daughter
I was a student
I was a victim
Did I have his love?
Did I make him feel?
Did I have his empathy?
When the actions of a soulless killer forces sorrow into my veins I never dreamed the man healing my wounds would be the one to leave the worst scar. His love would scar my soul. Scars are permanent; I will never feel the relief from them. Will I learn to live with them, remember why I have them and learn never to let him close enough to inflict more? Will I eventually cover them… like tattoos coating them with new memories, new love and new starts? I didn’t know these answers because the pain was too suffocating, the only thing I knew was they will always be under the surface lingering. He had scars too, from his sins. There is nothing that can cover them, they were too deep, too ugly, too dark and they marked us both forever.

After you took her from me, everything changed. I knew my life would never be the same, and it wasn't. But just because I was isolated, trapped, and afraid, I never gave up. I kept on fighting. You thought you could control me, but you were wrong. There’s one thing that you could never take from me; HOPE. And with that, I overcame the struggles and the despair. I battled against my inner demons and confronted the tortures that surrounded me. And here I am today; free.

And now, it’s you that’s confined. You cannot escape; you cannot win. There’s no one to help you now. Everyone sees you for what you truly are; a monster. I’m not afraid of you anymore.

Little Things (Second Chances #1)

Goodreads


Everything in Duke Grayson’s life was all he could ever ask for: A loving family, loyal friends, a beautiful girlfriend, and a scholarship to his top choice college. It’s his senior year of high school, and all he needs is to focus on his grades, lacrosse, and keeping his girlfriend happy. That is until Raya walks into his life.

From the moment they meet, Duke is drawn to her, not only for her natural beauty and her stunning crystal blue eyes, but because he’s aware there’s more to this girl than just his alluring pull to her. He senses secrecy and fear.

Throughout the year, their bond grows stronger, and his feelings for her become undeniable. Just when he is about to express his love, tragedy strikes and Raya disappears. For six years, Duke is tortured by his struggles, as he’s unable to find her and blames himself for failing to protect her. Until the day, she’s found, and he’s given a second chance. Will Duke become her beacon of hope and make her see that it’s the little things that make life worthwhile? Can Raya overcome her fears and fight against the terrors that haunt her? Or will her dark and torturous past be too much for her to battle against?

*Warning: This book contains some disturbing situations, strong language and sexual content. Suited for 18 years and over.*

Review
Empathy by Ker Dukey is phenomenal dark romance,  story that will keep you guessing till the very end. Dukey writes it in a way that you're pulled in and need  to keep turning the pages to see what is going to happen. As to be expected by now, Dukey has given us three complex characters, Melody and brother's Blake and Ryan. Tragic circumstances have lead them together. Melody and Ryan as friends, while Melody and Blake have this dance of attraction, hate, and passion.

What unfolds leaves you reeling and going "what?" as you read this book. Empathy is a story you have to read. There are so many twists, turns and revelations, you don't know what's going to happen next. It has been a long time since I've read a book that offered such a psychological  element to it. This is what I love about it. It's not a predictable story whatsoever. Dukey leads you down one path before she turns you around and pulls the rug from under you.

Ker Dukey is gifted when it comes to the written word. Empathy proves it once again. It's  going to be a long time before I stop thinking about this book. Empathy should be the next book you read.
