Guest Blogger: Miss Blue Hair by Ellie Barker (@sinfulpress)

I like my sex mixed. Shaken, not stirred; although possibly stirred is better when it comes to stories, because shaken tends to be a bit too dramatic for my liking – give me orgasmic climaxes over explosions any day! But the point is that I prefer things a little off the beaten track; down the darker path, as it were, or just the path less trodden. A different mixture of potion ingredients to make the cocktail a bit more unusual.

I do write erotica, but I like my sex mixed with something else. Another genre, maybe. Another gender. And in the case of Miss Blue Hair, I got both.

Sky herself came from a simple phrase; “Why not?” Why couldn’t I write a transgender character with bright blue hair, a snarky wit and a rock-hard cock? And Nikolas came from a friend; a swagger, a cheeky smile, and an arrogance bordering on the cocky (pun definitely intended). Nikolas himself has mellowed a little, of course, because I have a soft spot for him – but he has retained a lot of the swagger, and all the accompanying sexual charm that goes with it. And when he met Sky…well, they hit it off.

But they needed some context. Some excitement. Some reasons.

And Sky’s good at stealing more than just hearts.

So she became a thief, and Nikolas became mixed up in a world that he’s a little too familiar with.

The thriller genre is a lot of fun to write in – thriller, noir, crime, it’s all got a heady mix of gangs and underworld criminals, daring thefts and seedy bars. It’s a world that someone who wants to be themselves and someone who’s hiding their true self both fit into just fine. And it means that I can season my romance with crime, my erotica with noir, my passion with a darker edge; and it swirls nicely into the mixture, steaming hot and just ready to be tasted.

Excerpt from “Miss Blue Hair”

Sinful Pleasures

“And don’t think,” I added, feeling my lips move against her skin, “of lying.”

“But if I lie,” Sky’s breathy voice said from somewhere by my ear, “you’d just have to get the truth out of me, wouldn’t you?”

“How would I do that?” I let my teeth enclose a bite of skin, with enough pressure to tell her that I could make a mark if I wanted to.

“You don’t know how to?”

My teeth did leave a mark, white on her dark skin, and she groaned. I felt one of her hands come around my back and the other trail up my leg, towards my now-stiffening cock.

“But the problem with this,” I said, and left another mark on her neck, “is that you like it.”

“If you’re nice to me—” Another groan as my teeth bit in again. “Maybe I’ll tell you the truth.”

I trailed my tongue down her neck, keeping my hand entwined in her hair. Her hands were now doing interesting things to my shoulders and back. “How nice would I have to be?” I asked when I’d finished with that patch of skin.

“Very.”

With one movement I pulled her onto my lap, one hand still wound in her hair and her buttocks lying across my thighs. And I brought my free hand down sharply.

Sky groaned, and I felt her cock twitch against my leg. “That’s not nice.”

“No.” I punctuated the word with another slap. “It’s not.” Another slap.

She was gasping and I felt her thrust her hips against me as I spanked her again. She wasn’t even trying to fight; one hand was wound under my legs and the other pushed against my calf, and she was almost rock-hard now. I was, too; the way she moved on my lap was infuriating.

I spanked her until she was moaning under me, begging me to stop and please just fuck her again. But I slid my hand across her burning skin and smiled as she panted. “You were going to tell me some secrets.”

Lady Sally’s other adventures

Lady Sally Rudston-Chichester is the main character of Mistress Of The Air. She’s a larger than life, incorrigible dominatrix who travels across the Empires of Europe finding new and inventive ways to punish her submissive gentlemen and creating mayhem along the way.

Lady Sally was featured in other adventures before Mistress Of The Air. Her first appearance was in a short story, ‘Lady Sally Rudston-Chichester and the Silk Merchant of Samarkand’, which appeared in an anthology called Beltane Fire (Xcite Books, 2012). In this story, she travels to the silk route city of Samarkand to follow up an account in the journal of her ancestor who tells of a marvellous weave of silk that works like a kind of ancient day Viagra. In fact, we find out in this story that Lady Sally is descended from a Samarkand courtesan. She ends up getting fucked on the tomb of Tamerlane the magnificent by her silk merchant.

She returned in ‘Lady Sally Rudston-Chichester and the Walled Garden’ in an anthology of stories on the theme of gardening erotica in Fifty Shades of Green (Greenwoman Publishing, 2014). In this story she commissions landscape gardener, Jack Buckingham, to design a walled garden planted with poisonous and prickly flora which Lady Sally proceeds to use on him before fucking him in her new garden (yes, there’s a theme developing here!)

Lady Sally possessed some distinctly Steampunk characteristics in both these earlier stories, especially her love of fine corsetry and nice afternoon teas. But in ‘Lady Sally’ Rudston-Chichester and the Automaton Horse’ (Forbidden Fiction, 2015, reproduced in the anthology Of Passion and Steam, 2017) she developed into a fully-fledged Steampunk character. After her horse is beaten by Lord Melchiot’s at York Races, believing she’s been cheated, she plots her revenge involving a brass, automaton horse that provide unique opportunities for some exquisite punishment.

Mistress Of The Air does sneak in some references to Lady Sally’s earlier adventures including her lineage as the ancestor of a Samarkand courtesan. And she has fun telling her companions these tales whilst smoking a hookah pipe of hashish whilst in Istanbul.

So, as you can see, the character of Lady Sally has been developing, reaching its culmination in Mistress Of The Air. You can expect wild escapades, kinky BDSM, the fastest airship ever built, dastardly devices, explosions and nice cups of teas. I hope you’ll join Lady Sally for the ride

Book Blurb

Mistress of the Air is a Comic, Steampunk, Erotic Adventure.

Lady Sally Rudston-Chichester owns a brass mine in Zanzibar, a Lapsang Souchong tea plantation in China, a rubber tree farm in Malaysia, trunk loads of corsetry, and the country’s largest collection of antique whips and floggers.

Larger than life, and itching to find new and inventive ways to punish her submissive gentlemen, the Edwardian dominatrix has a vision. Embracing the spirit of the new age of aviation, she embarks on a series of adventures on her own airship, The Corseted Domme, with her transvestite maid, Victoria, her airship pilot, Captain Wyndham, and her automaton sex toy, Borghild.

A select group of submissive gentlemen, consisting of a duke, bishop, lawyer and banker, is invited to join Lady Sally so she can try out her new dastardly devices and sex toys on them. She whips, spanks and punishes her way across the Empires of Europe, dropping off to visit her aristocratic relatives and friends for afternoon tea.

But Lady Sally’s journey is not uneventful. War is threatening to break out and the Ministry of Aviation want to commandeer her airship for the war effort. And when The Corseted Domme has a crash landing, Lady Sally realises there is a stowaway on board intent on sabotaging her airship.

There will be wild escapades, kinky BDSM, dastardly devices, explosions and nice cups of tea.

Extract

Lady Sally was an organised and ruthless shopper. She had a vision for what she needed and set about her purchases with determination. She was also a tough negotiator and bartered hard with the traders to get a good, and fair, price. This was, of course, only what they would have expected, but if they thought this rich, aristocratic English woman was going to be a soft touch, that illusion was soon dispelled. Lady Sally used a combination of hard bargaining skills, along with her undoubted charm, to secure a good price.

They went from block to block in the bazaar, each zone specialising in a particular craft. She wanted hand-woven Turkish rugs and bought several of them, with brightly coloured geometric patterns. She purchased ceramics, copper bowls, hukkah pipes, silver tea pots, decorated glasses and lamps. That was before she even got to the section selling materials and clothing where she bought silks, cottons, kaftans, gowns, silk slippers and an abundant supply of silver jewellery. Then there were the spices and incenses, and last, but not least the teas. There were stalls selling a vast range of teas, many blends she was familiar with, but she also purchased pomegranate and jasmine teas, which she’d never tried before.

The chests filled up quickly, and it wasn’t long before the six men found themselves carting the laden trunks around the bazaar with them. Lady Sally shopped like a whirling dervish, and it wasn’t until it was time for tea that she finally stopped.

They retired to a tea shop recommended by Mr Mustafa. Lady Sally was sipping green tea whilst inhaling enormous drafts of smoke from a huge hukkah pipe. She was in a good mood… an exceedingly good mood.

She was giggling manically and telling them tales of her colourful past.

“Did I tell you about the time in Samarkand when I got fucked on the tomb of Tamerlane the Magnificent by my silk merchant?” she announced, proceeding to relate the story in graphic detail.

Then she told them about her poison garden at Rudston Hall, and how she’d fucked her gardener, and about how she punished Lord Melchiot on her automaton horse.

She was in fits of giggles.

“Oh, I’ve had such marvellous adventures.” She turned to the merchant, “So tell me, Mr Mustafa, is this what is called ‘hashish’?”

“Yes, Lady Sally, the very finest… and potent.”

“Well, I must say, this is wonderful stuff. My last purchase will be to stock up with some to take back to England.”

By now the whole party was well and truly stoned, except for Victoria, who had a ‘gippy’ stomach from the horse’s testicle, and had declined the offer of smoking hashish. In between reclining on the divans collapsed in a constant state of giggles, they managed to demolish a huge plate of flatbreads, lamb kebabs, chickpea dip, dates and other delicacies.

A young, veiled woman approached them.

“Come here, my dear,” called Lady Sally. “What a lovely necklace. It’s so shiny. Oh, my goodness, I’ve never seen anything so shiny! I don’t think my poor eyes can stand the brightness.”

“Please, are you the famous English lady, Lady Sally Rudston-Chichester?”

Lady Sally was not averse to bit of flattery, “Oh, famous, well yes, naturally my reputation does proceed me.”

“I’ve read about you in the Istanbul Sun. You are a strong lady who will stand up to males and protect women. I have come to plead for your help.”

Victoria’s ears pricked up. Alarm bells rang.

“Yes, do tell me more,” Lady Sally encouraged.

“My name is Nisrahur. You see, my sister has been picked up from the streets by the sultan’s guards where she has been taken to his harem as a slave. I know the girls are badly mistreated. I was hoping a lady of your standing could negotiate with the sultan to get her released.”

“I will do better than that,” exclaimed Lady Sally. “I will rescue her!”

Her maid tried to intervene, “Madam, is this wise? This could end up as a disaster. I see more explosions and being chased out of Istanbul.”

“Victoria, let it not be said Lady Sally Rudston-Chichester will not leap to the defence of her sex for a noble cause.”
