Not Vanilla series – forbidden flavors of love

Rope shibariI’m really excited about my current writing project with fellow Dirty Birdie Roz Lee. We’re working on a brand-new series called NOT VANILLA, which offers a glimpse into a range of sexy “flavors” that are definitely not vanilla.

Our first duo release is VOYEURISM (out 19th May), which includes my story, WATCH ME, and Roz’s LOOKIN’ GOOD.

The second duo will be BONDAGE, and it is this one I wanted to talk about today. I swore I’d never write a submissive heroine, as my personal inclination is to slap anyone who lets others walk all over them. You want me to bless your morning coffee before I carry it to you in my mouth while crawling on my knees? Fuck off. I was always planning a female Domme heroine who would take no shit from anyone. Someone I can relate to.

But in researching this theme, and the art of shibari and kinbaku, and learning more about the subtleties inherent in the BDSM world, I began to realize that things are not black and white. No, I haven’t read that book series, nor have I seen the movie, but there really are almost limitless shades of grey in relation to bondage, dominance and submission, aren’t there?

I’ve discovered an idea that really appeals to me, in which a strong, alpha woman who is in control at all times, yearns to give over responsibility, even if just for a little while. The concept of finding relief in submitting, while being an “alpha” in real life, just fascinates me. (Someone I can relate to, perhaps!). As soon as I discovered the “alpha submissive”, my shibari story idea took hold, and I can’t wait to bring you this next instalment in our NOT VANILLA series.

In the meantime, as I’m still writing ALPHA SUBMISSIVE, today I’m delighted to offer a snippet from WATCH ME, appearing in the upcoming May release NOT VANILLA – VOYEURISM. Hope you like this Adults-only excerpt:

Not Vanilla Voyeurism coverHis face is like a mask, a rictus of concentration and focus. A bright sheen of sweat appears on his back, accentuating the tone of his muscles more effectively than a jar of oil ever would. This is real. This is so fucking hot.

And then I catch it, the instant he loses control and the frenzy begins. I moan, plunging as deep as I can into my own body as I try to keep up the pace. He’s lost the even rhythm and he’s riding her so hard the top of her skull keeps whacking the headboard.

Then even through the closed windows I hear the high-pitched scream as she starts to come. His mouth too opens wide and his whole body shudders as I watch him follow her over the edge.

“Yes! Yes! Oh my God…” The squeal forces all the way up from the base of my lungs and bursts out into our bedroom as I buck crazily against my hands. Dampness is smeared across my palms and I lose all sense of time. The orgasm takes me to a place where everything stands still and nothing exists but these waves of sensation that keep rolling and rolling through every part of my body.

Finally, eventually, I come back to the present. I sigh deeply, replete and exhausted, until a guttural masculine groan to my right causes my heart to jolt painfully.

I gasp, having forgotten that Danny and I are not the only players in this sensual game of voyeurism.

I swivel just in time to catch the creamy arc of cum spurt up and out, and then down, the spray eventually losing itself in the cream colored carpet of our bedroom.

Will. My husband. He’s been there in the shadows, taking his own private pleasure. Watching the watcher. Watching me.

NOT VANILLA – VOYEURISM will be out on the 19th May. Please keep an eye on the blog for more details.
