A Little Slap and Tickle to go with Bondage

Many of you might recall that I’ve teamed up with fellow Dirty Birdie, Jennifer Lynne on the kinky, NOT VANILLA series. It’s simple. We picked three kinks and each wrote a short story to fit the themes.

The first release was NOT VANILLA – VOYEURISM which debuted last month. Up next is NOT VANILLA – BONDAGE, which is available now for preorder at all the major retailers. (Release date – 7.21.15)

Things have been rolling along pretty smoothly on this series until recently when we ran across a kink we had no idea what to do about!

What, you wonder, could stump two ladies as twisted and dirty minded as Jennifer and me?

It’s simple we were slapped. Yep. Got caned pretty good by the censors at a certain retail outlet where we had uploaded BONDAGE for sale. Upon review of our cover, it was deemed too HOT to allow the general public to see – even if they knew the title and typed it into the search box!

Here’s the cover in question.

Since we live on different continents, Jennifer and I had an email pow-wow about the situation. We both agreed that we love the cover and did not want to get rid of it. Besides, only the one outlet was complaining!

What to do?

We decided we didn’t want to commission a new cover, but we needed to do something to appease the easily offended powers at said retailer. So…we decided to tickle them a bit. It was only fair since they’d slapped us hard.

This is our solution to the problem –

We thought it was pretty funny. It will only be used at that certain retailer, and readers who purchase there will find the original cover inside the book file. We figured anyone buying a book with our kind of title wouldn’t be offended by the cover. *smirk*

What do you think?

At least we didn’t lose our sense of humor over the situation.

Here’s the blurb for NOT VANILLA – BONDAGE.

USA Today Bestselling Author Roz Lee, and Bestselling Author Jennifer Lynne, invite you to taste the forbidden in a brand-new series offering a tantalizing glimpse into a range of “flavors” that are definitely not vanilla!

The second in this series, NOT VANILLA – BONDAGE, will be out on July 21st, and includes HUNG UP by Roz Lee and ALPHA SUBMISSIVE by Jennifer Lynne. These sexy, novelette-length stories are designed to take you into the erotic world of rope bondage, while still holding onto the romance.

 Hung Up by Roz Lee

I should have told Colton what he could do with his money, but I need it to keep the doors of my dance studio open. So, here I am, naked and bound, with a bull rope around my waist, and despite the intricate suspension system holding me up, I’m falling hard. Falling for the impossible man who threw me for a loop and lassoed my heart. Beth

Alpha Submissive by Jennifer Lynne

What happens when a driven, alpha woman is forced by circumstance to participate in a shibari rope display? Bound and immobilized by the country’s leading Dominant rope master, Ava fights to keep control. If she does the unthinkable and allows herself to submit to Roane, will she lose the only part of herself that really matters—her heart—to the man who now holds her destiny in his practiced hands?
