SPOTLIGHT

Guardian Domination

Breanna Hayse

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Guardian DominationCeleste Bronston once again faces the law and the only way to avoid incarceration is to submit herself to a man she’s never met—her godfather, Jace Jordon. The judge’s condition is that the 18-year-old will be under Jace’s authority until she turns twenty-one. Having no other choice except for jail, she accepts the court’s offer.

Her legal guardian is not at all what she imagined him to be! Besides being young, quite wealthy and exceedingly handsome, the man has a unique way in dealing with obstinate and naughty young woman. Failure to follow his strict rules and exercising poor behavior promptly earns the young lady and trip over his knee for a memorable bare-bottom spanking!

Jace also offers her the love and respect that she had not experienced in the past. Together with his best friend, Mark, the men help Celeste learn about her value and worth as a human being. As she thrives in the environment of domestic discipline, Celeste’s feelings toward Jace begin to change—along with her desire to learn more about his lifestyle as a dominant. She accepts his challenge to learn about dominance and submission, themselves facing a crossroads. Do they dare step over the line and experiment with romance?

Guardian Domination was written to share my actual training as a submissive in a fictional background. All the scenes are recreations of actual events. This work includes spanking of adult women. If you liked Fifty Shades of Grey, then this book is certainly for you.

Breanna HayseAbout the Author: BDSM/AP lifestyler Breanna Hayse strives to give her readers truth and reality of the BDSM/Age-Play/Total Power and Erotic Exchange lifestyle.

Who am I?

I’m a native Californian gone ‘wild’, and had the opportunity to travel the globe and discover the world through the eyes of both a Marine Intelligence specialist and a BDSM lifestyler. I left the service to go into hospice nursing and grief counseling, eventually working as a marriage and family therapist for those involved in alternative lifestyle development. This experience has allowed me to gain unique inspiration for my books and offer realistic plots and relatable characters.

In 2004, my husband, John, and I joined forces to work with both submissives and dominants- teaching, training, listening and loving. Our goal was to take the mystery and fear out of the lifestyle and mentor people in safe, consensual and healthy relationships.

My first book, The Game Plan, was published in 2012 and opened the door to the now-booming world of Age-Play literature. Since that time, I’ve devoted my ‘spare’ time to writing, researching, community involvement, and private and group pro bono counseling in deviant behavior, alternative lifestyle, and addiction recovery.

I was formally ‘dungeon trained’ as a Domme before discovering my submissive side when I joined the service. My scenarios are pulled primarily from either personal experience or observation, including spending time in BDSM clubs as the safety/medical officer. My multi-faceted background allows me to glean from many avenues and give a unique and intelligent literary experience through elements of fantasy and fiction. I also discuss the questions and psychology of the lifestyle in a manner that is fun and informative, and based on ‘the real deal.’

I live with my husband, musician, and fellow-author, John Hayse, and two border collies in southern California. We practice a 24/7 D&S relationship with speckles of AP (and many trips to Build-A-Bear), and happily spend every moment together that we can. My hobbies include my puppies, hiding my vanilla salt-water taffy where John can’t find it, exotic art, collecting inspirational trinkets, and developing my own paddle line. You can also see me as a featured author/instructor in professional conference settings and as a Sexpert for kinkyliterature.com.

THE BOOKS

Little Hearts Series

Breanna Hayse

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Moving a Little Heart

Little Hearts Book 1

moving new_411x600Baylor Parish needs a fresh start. After a disastrous, loveless marriage and an emotionally neglected childhood, she packs her things and moves to a new house out in the desert to get away from it all and enjoy her freedom.

Unfortunately, the occupants of the house next door have other ideas.

As soon as Hayden Paterson spots her moving in, he takes over. Next, she meets his stepbrother Jake, a cop who takes her safety far more seriously than Baylor does herself. The last thing Baylor wants is to get into another relationship, but the Paterson brothers rescue people for a living, and from the moment they clap eyes on her, they label the 23-year-old a ‘damsel in distress.’ Not only do they do everything in their power to protect, nurture and guide her, but they also enlist the help of their longtime friends and roommates; Terry and Matt.

Hayden and Jake come together to woo her to become a part of their unique family. To them, she is an adult little girl in need of the love, caring, nurturing – and yes, discipline – that only two “Daddies” can provide. To the independent Baylor, the assumption that she is in dire need of “Daddycare” seems not only strange, but completely opposed to the self-sufficiency she thought she wanted.

As well as her new Daddy Hayden and Daddy Jake, Baylor also finds herself in the care of “Uncle” Terry, a retired medic. He’s the burly, protective “house mom” and “doctor”, who is not only thrilled to have a little girl to care for, but likes to take control of Baylor’s health in ways that she preferred he did not. Then there is Matt, the resident “hippie”, who quickly becomes Baylor’s adoring “big brother” and helps her devise ways to get into mischief… which frequently lands her over the lap of one of her new daddies.

Basking in the loving embrace of these four men, Baylor’s inner child emerges, and under their sometimes stern, but always loving, care, she not only discovers her ability to play and laugh, she also begins to trust and feel loved. She also learns that a bottom bared for punishment can experience intense pleasure when used in “special” ways by one – or both – of her two men.

Despite her happiness, Baylor continues to struggle with allowing herself to fully submit. Is this lifestyle, the one of a Little girl with two Daddies, an Uncle and a Big Brother, right for her? Will she be able to leave behind her loveless, uncaring past and allow her heart to be moved to permanently reside within the arms and home of these very special men?

This #1 Best Seller is geared towards those readers who enjoy realistic age-play/BDSM, menage and a loving, healthy family life of a house full of alpha males. If discipline/sensual spanking, anal, and medical play aren’t your ‘cup of tea,’ then you haven’t read a book like this!

Goodreads * Amazon

Loving a Little Heart

Little Hearts Book 2

LOVING NEW _411x600She’s got two gorgeous men, and a serious craving for chocolate…

In this, the sequel to Breanna Hayse’s best-selling ‘Moving A Little Heart’, Baylor’s back—with double the trouble. Feisty but vulnerable Baylor Parish is pregnant with twins, which means her two daddies; stepbrothers Hayden and Jake; her Uncle Terry, and her big brother Matt are even more loving and protective of their girl than usual.

About to realize their lifelong dreams of fatherhood, Jake and Hayden decide to make their family official before the babies are born, and soon a double wedding is on the horizon for the Paterson household. A unique, polyamorous dynamic, however, calls for a very unique wedding—something Baylor is only too glad to embrace. After all, she was married before, and that traditional ceremony ended up having disastrous consequences.

Pregnancy is a time for growth in more ways than one, and Baylor is worried that her dynamics with Hayden and Jake will change now that they’re going to become parents. Can she be a mother and still explore her Little side with her two daddies? How will her changing body and high risk pregnancy affect their BDSM routine? And what will happen when a blast from her terrible past turns up on her doorstep?

Baylor discovers that two partners, two babies, an Uncle and a big brother simply result in twice as much everything; double the fun, double the worry, double the time over a strong lap, and twice as much love…

This story contains explicit content including spanking of adult women, ménage, and ageplay. If you enjoy this material, then grab a box of chocolate and let’s have some fun!

Saint

Gates of Heaven Book 1

MOUTH TO MOUTH RESUSCITATION

Saint_400x600After the death of their mother, Frank “Saint” Jeffrey knew the only way to protect his younger brother was to strike a deal with their autocratic, cruel, abusive father. In exchange for his brother’s freedom to live his life as he wished, Saint promised to follow in his father’s footsteps and become a preeminent surgeon in his father’s medical practice. When events he never could have predicted took away Saint’s ability to perform surgery, the bargain became null and void. With no safety net, and a life without purpose, Saint moved across the country, bought a wreck of a building in DTLA, and hoped while resurrecting the property he’d find a reason to live again. Then Max Connor entered his life, and Saint was dragged from the darkness of desolation into the light of love.

After years of living on the streets in DTLA, doing anything and everything required to survive, Finn finds a home, a job, and kindness with Saint Jeffrey, who is renovating a grand old building mere blocks from Skid Row.

But one single-minded, stubborn warrior brings Finn back into the fold, and they defeat his last remaining enemy giving them the freedom to pursue their forever.

BLOG TOUR & INTERVIEW: When It’s All Said & Done — Denise N. Wheatley | #ContemporaryRomance

when its all said and done banner

INTERVIEW

Today I welcome author Denise N. Wheatley to The FlipSide to talk about writing and her book When It’s All Said & Done. Welcome Denise, tell us what When It’s All Said & Done means to you and what you’re hoping readers will take away from the story.

I’ve always been a lover of romance and enjoy writing it just as much as I enjoy reading it. When It’s All Said & Done is fun, contemporary romantic comedy that’s very close to my heart. As the novel came to fruition, I found myself wanting to be friends with the smart, savvy, beautiful women in the book and date the handsome, strong, sexy, men! My goal was to tell an entertaining story that embodies matters of the heart and would leave readers thinking about the colorful characters long after the final chapter.

What are five of your favorite quotes from When It’s All Said & Done?

  1. “Michael, I know it’s not your fault that she came here, but it will be your fault if she stays.”
  2. “If this night has to end now, then I’d love to see you tomorrow.”
  3. Right before she closed her eyes, Leslie looked down at her left hand and decided that maybe an emerald cut diamond would better suit her….
  4. But as Ann Landers once said, if you have love in your life, it can make up for a great many things that are missing. If you don’t have love in your life, no matter what else there is, it’s not enough.
  5. Then she turned back around and walked out the door, knowing that when it was all said and done, she would be entering this next phase of her life with absolutely no regrets.

What makes a good story?

For me, a good story involves an element of romance. That, along with creating strong, interesting, relatable characters, while developing a thoughtful, interesting plot that will keeping readers guessing, makes for an awesome storyline.

Do your characters seem to hijack your books or do you feel like you have the reigns of the stories?

My characters absolutely hijack my books lol! A perfect example would be the protagonists and antagonist in my novel The Road to Bliss. When I began writing that story, I had a solid idea of how it would progress and how things would end. But as I wrote and the storyline developed, certain characters pulled me in a different direction, which completely changed the course of the narrative. I don’t want to give too much away, but let’s just say my main character Timber West did not end up with the man I thought she would.

How do you handle writer’s block?

When I get writer’s block, the first thing I do is grow patient with myself, understanding that I’m just not on a roll that day or week. If I spend a whole day on one paragraph, then so be it. I’m just glad to be making progress and moving forward. Another tactic I use during those periods of writer’s block is to just write whatever comes to mind without judging it. No matter how terrible the words may seem, I just write. And usually when I go back and edit what I’ve written, it isn’t nearly as bad as I thought it’d be. I also like to tinker with photography and graphics programs (usually to create promotional pieces for my work) or dabble in another project when I burn out. It’s therapeutic and helps get me back on track.

Do you prefer to write in silence or with noise? Why?

I like to write with noise. Nothing too loud, but I always need a little bit of activity in the background. As strange as it may sound, total silence can be disruptive me when I’m trying to write.

Let’s play ten questions in ten seconds. Go!

  1. Favorite Author: Terry McMillan
  2. Favorite Book: Butterfly by Kathryn Harvey
  3. Sweet or Salty: Sweet
  4. Dream Vacation: Paris
  5. Music or Silence: Music
  6. Plotter or Panster: Plotter
  7. Vanilla or Kink: Kink
  8. Morning Bird or Night Owl: Night Owl
  9. Half Full or Half Empty: Half Full
  10. Boxers, Briefs or Bare: Bare

BLOG TOUR & GUEST POST: The Matawapit Family — Maggie Blackbird | #contemporaryromance #inspirationalromance

the matawapit family banner

GUEST POST

I remember searching through photos trying to find Bridget, because I already knew who Adam was.  Pictures are nice to have on hand.  Sometimes I get lucky and find a picture, sometimes I don’t.

For Blessed, book one in the Matawapit Family Series, I visualised a young Pat John in his prime (who played Jesse Jim in the CBC TV show the Beachcombers) as Darryl.  But for Emery, he only existed in my imagination, until eXasty Books cover artist Martine Jardin took my ideas and produced Emery for the book’s cover.  She shocked me, because I didn’t expect to see my Emery, the one I dreamed up in my head, on the cover of Blessed.  Goes to show how talented she is.

For Redeemed, when I saw a picture of actress Kimberly Guerrero posing on the cover of a movie poster with the late Steve Reevis for the film The Cherokee Word for Water, I knew I’d found my Bridget Matawapit.

As for hero Adam Guimond, the late actor Sonny Lanham, during his 48 Hours and Predator heyday, was perfect to fill the roll of Adam.  They shared the same muscular build, deep, booming voice, scary laugh, and intimidating presence.

So there’d be no movie, because two of the actors have since passed on.  But it’s nice to wish and wonder.

Genre: Contemporary Inspirational Romance

Redeemed

The Matawapit Family Series Book 2

REDEEMED-Final_400x600A single woman battles to keep her foster child from his newly-paroled father—a dangerous man she used to love.

Bridget Matawapit is an Indigenous activist, daughter of a Catholic deacon, and foster mother to Kyle, the son of an Ojibway father—the ex-fiancé she kicked to the curb after he chose alcohol over her love. With Adam out on parole and back in Thunder Bay, she is determined to stop him from obtaining custody of Kyle.

Adam Guimond is a recovering alcoholic and ex-gangbanger newly-paroled. Through counselling, reconnecting with his Ojibway culture and twelve-step meetings while in prison, Adam now understands he’s worthy of the love that frightened him enough to pick up the bottle he’d previously corked. He can’t escape the damage he caused so many others, but he longs to rise like a true warrior in the pursuit of forgiveness and a second chance. There’s nothing he isn’t willing to do to win back his son–and Bridget.

When an old cell mate’s daughter dies under mysterious circumstances in foster care, Adam begs Bridget to help him uncover the truth. Bound to the plight of the Indigenous children in care, Bridget agrees. But putting herself in contact with Adam threatens to resurrect her long-buried feelings for him, and even worse, she risks losing care of Kyle, by falling for a man who might destroy her faith in love completely this time.

BLESSED_400x600It’s been ten years since Emery Matawapit sinned, having succumbed to temptation for the one thing in his life that felt right, another man. In six months he’ll make a life-changing decision that will bar him from sexual relationships for the rest of his life.

Darryl Keejik has a decade-long chip on his shoulder, and he holds Emery’s father, the church deacon, responsible for what he’s suffered: the loss of his family and a chance at true love with Emery. No longer a powerless kid, Darryl has influence within the community—maybe more than the deacon. Darryl intends on using his power to destroy Deacon Matawapit and his church.

Hoping to save the church, Emery races home. But stopping Darryl is harder than expected when their sizzling chemistry threatens to consume Emery. Now he is faced with the toughest decision of his life: please his devout parents and fulfill his call to the priesthood, or remain true to his heart and marry the man created for him.

This is very erotic book about a spiritual journey.

SPOTLIGHT

The Road to Bliss

Denise N. Wheatley

Genre: Contemporary Romance

The Road to Bliss Book Cover_358x600Newly engaged Timber West is a beauty and wellness entrepreneur who seemingly has it all. But her life is turned upside down when she breaks off her engagement with Brian after he questions her career choices and wavers on wanting more children. Timber turns to her friend Eva for sympathy, which is tricky considering Brian is also Eva’s father.

Timber eventually finds love again with sexy actor Alex and moves her company Soothing Bliss into a beautiful commercial space. With an exciting new man and a business that’s flourishing, Timber feels as though she’s on the perfect path. But she’s thrown into a whirlwind of turmoil when Soothing Bliss’s new location is threatened to be purchased by a callous art curator, and Alex’s popularity sparks his wandering eye.

Then Brian reappears and they start up an unlikely friendship, giving Timber just the boost she needs. As Christmastime approaches, Timber’s wish is that her favorite holiday will bring about a miracle in her fight to keep Soothing Bliss in its rightful home. With a little compromise and dose of holiday magic, Timber wonders whether she and Brian can work through their past and mend a relationship that perhaps never should have unraveled.

Reader Alert!
Timber West always plays by the rules. So even she’s surprised when she decides to leave her prestigious job as a chemist and launch a beauty and wellness company. Her fiancé Brian, who was her chemistry professor during college and also happens to be her best friend’s father, isn’t happy with this decision. His disapproval leads to their breakup, but a devastated Timber eventually finds love again with a charismatic movie star. Life is good until both her new relationship and business begin to falter, leaving Timber reevaluating Brian and pondering whether she should give him a second chance.

To My Readers:
A story just isn’t a story without a large dose of romance and a happily ever after. THE ROAD TO BLISS is just that. This novel is a beautiful tale of love and second chances, with plenty of fun, drama and turmoil in between! My main character’s love affair feels so real to me, to the point where I found myself rooting for her in hopes that everything would work in her favor. Writing this book was a wonderful journey, and I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it!

BLOG TOUR & INTERVIEW: Faithful Falls Series — Elle Linder | #ContemporaryRomance

faithful falls banner

INTERVIEW

Today I welcome Elle Linder, author of the Faithful Falls series to The FlipSide to answer a few questions about life and writing. Hi Elle, tell me: where are you from?

I was born and raised in California among the dairies and orchards of the Central Valley. It was a great place to be a kid with beaches and mountains all within two hours of my home. Though I didn’t live in Southern California, I had relatives there and visited the area frequently.

What do you do to unwind and relax?

I like to jam to music while drinking wine or spend a weekend binge reading or watching a favorite TV show like Arrow or Lucifer.

Which of your novels can you imagine made into a movie?

I think my novella, Redemptive Love, would be an excellent movie! It’s a gritty, second-chance romance about inherited double-standards. Joseph and Kate are both Latinos who grew up in families where boys and girls were treated differently. They were high school sweethearts who broke up after a betrayal. Ten years later their paths cross again, and they attempt to reconnect. When ugly truths from their past are uncovered, the only way they’ll get a second chance at love is if they can forgive each other.

When did you first consider yourself a writer?

I received an honorable mention for short story that I submitted for a Writer’s Digest contest a couple  years ago (2017, I think). It was a validating and proud moment for me. At that moment, I really felt like I accomplished something as a writer and that this could really go somewhere.

SPOTLIGHT

New Orleans Rush

Kelly Siskind

Genre: Contemporary Romance

A fun mixture of magic, sensuality, and iconic pin-up girl style. The romance in New Orleans Rush will leave you smiling and filled with optimism.”

– Helen Hoang, author of The Kiss Quotient

Falling for your surly boss is a rotten idea.
Letting him saw you in half is even worse…

9781635766264_FC_400x600Beatrice Baker may be a struggling artist, but she believes all hardships have silver linings…until she follows her boyfriend to New Orleans and finds him with another woman. Instead of turning those lemons into lemonade, she drinks lemon drop martinis and keys the wrong man’s car.

Now she works for Huxley Marlow of the Marvelous Marlow Boys, getting shoved in boxes as an on-stage magician’s assistant. A cool job for some, but Bea’s been coerced into the role to cover her debt. She also maybe fantasizes about her boss’s adept hands and what else they can do.

She absolutely will not fall for him, or kiss him senseless. Until she does. The scarred, enigmatic Huxley has unwittingly become her muse, unlocking her artistic dry spell, but his vague nightly activities are highly suspect. The last time Beatrice trusted a man, her bank account got drained and she almost got arrested. Surely this can’t end that badly…right?

The Game Plan

The Game Plan Series Book 1

Genre: Contemporary Romance

The book that began the Contemporary Age-Play Phenomenon is Back and it’s BIGGER AND BETTER than EVER!

#1 Multi-Genre Best Selling Author Breanna Hayse brings you The Game Plan:
A story of love, hope, healing and discipline under the power of an age-play relationship.

***

1- The Game Plan_400x600After being abandoned by her father, twenty-year old Cassandra Johnson fought against being loved by anyone. Even after her mother married ex-Dolphins Quarterback Big Bill Johnson, she resisted every attempt to become part of her new family. Her resistance includes any interaction with the older Johnson boys who seem to enjoy nothing more than bossing her around. After the sudden passing of her mother, Cassie grows tired of living under the thumb of her dominating family and decides to press for independence. She starts by asserting her obstinate and willful disposition and defying all rules laid out for her.

When Bill goes to Japan for three months on business, he leaves Rob, the oldest of his sons, in charge. After the deliberate breaking of several house rules and multiple temper tantrums, Rob decides that a change to the “Game Plan” is necessary to bring Cassie under control to prevent her from hurting herself. The first thing on his list is taking the brat for a well-deserved trip over his knee for a bare bottom spanking!

Over the years, Rob had watched Cassie grow from an awkward little girl to a beautiful young woman. He struggles with his feelings when his interest in Cassie goes far beyond just curbing her naughty behavior. Her dream of having a life free from control is soon shattered when Bryon, the second oldest of the Johnson boys, adds some firm-handed discipline of his own.

The stubborn young woman soon finds herself facing more than just an old-fashioned, over the knee, bare-bottom spanking. She quickly learns that the Age-play lifestyle can lead to the healing of a long-broken and hardened heart. Even though she immerses herself in the joyful role of being Rob and Bryon’s Little girl, she wonders if she is truly wired for the type of relationship that they offer her. She also questions her ability to accept being Rob’s ‘big girl’ and give him what he longs for by becoming a true submissive.

Time Out

The Game Plan Series Book 2

2- Time Out_400x600The sequel to the original contemporary Age-Play book, the Game Plan, is here and bring you more fun and antics of the Johnson family as they grow together in Age-play and BDSM relationships.

You’ll meet Krissy, Bryon’s sweet little girl, as she is introduced to the concept of age play and discovers herself in the process. Suzanne and Glenn are back, and Suzanne explores her own femininity and puts pride aside to face her fears and needs as a Domme. Of course, we can’t forget Rob and Cassie as they grow and indulge in their own D&S lifestyle. Worlds collide as Cassie and Krissy fight over Daddy Bryon, Bryon and Glenn fight over Suzanne, and Rob seems to be the only voice of reason that is heard. And that’s just the beginning…

Publishers Note: the Age-Play Dynamic of the BDSM lifestyle is the most trusting and intimate of all. It values innocence, trust and nurturing of consenting adults. If you enjoy this genre, please check out many more of my AP stories, including a nonfiction piece (The General’s Little Angel) which shares how I was introduced to the dynamic.
Thank you for reading!

There are more twists and turns, sizzling hot sex, and well-spanked bottoms than this quiet little suburb of Miami can handle!

The End Zone

The Game Plan Series Book 3

The #1 Best Selling Age-Play Author who launched the world-wide contemporary Age-Play Phenomenon with The Game Plan and Time Out, brings you THE END ZONE

***

3- The End Zone_400x600Life was like a Chocolate Mousse Parfait for Cassie Johnson—especially since entering the BDSM lifestyle with the two alpha male brothers, Rob and Bryan. Her Dom and her Daddy Dom give her everything her Little heart desires—love, attention, pleasure, guidance and even discipline. They both belong to her, in and out of the bedroom, and her life finally feels stable, satisfying and secure. But then her happiness takes a turn when Daddy Bryon announces the probability that he will make his relationship with his girlfriend, Krissy, a permanent one. Throwing salt on her wounds, Cassie learns that both her Doms are interest in sharing her wonderful world with Krissy!

The Little Green Monster is let loose as the young woman faces the pain of being pushed aside and replaced. Devastated when her Little mode is carelessly ordered to ‘grow up,’ she decides to end BDSM, Age-Play and her engagement to Rob. Nothing, or no one, will change her mind.

Except for Dorian Graye, the Whip Master and the ‘king’ of the BDSM community.
Distraught by Cassie’s withdrawal, Rob and Bryon decide to take her to meet their mentor. Cassie can’t resist either Dorian’s charm or his raw ability to read into her needs, and instantly sinks into her Little place. The powerful Dom and his beautiful wife, Meredith, take her under their wing to teach her how to release her fears and open herself to play, passion, and freedom.

Self-doubt disappears in the presence of her new aunt and uncle. Cassie discovers the love of a BDSM family, all of which are equally happy to put her across the knee for a humiliating, bare bottom spanking as they are to spoil her with stuffies and ice-cream sundaes. The more she releases her Little to them, the greater the joy and freedom she receives.

She has only one concern, and that is if the magic spell of Graye Manor will disappear after they return home. There she must face the likelihood that both her Little space and her men will be shared with the other Little girl. Is her Little ready for such a Big step?

Touchdown

The Game Plan Series Book 4

Breanna Hayse, the #1 Multi-Genre Best-Selling author and founder of the contemporary Age-Play Phenomena, brings you BOOK 4 of the beloved Game Plan Series! TOUCHDOWN

****

4- Touchdown_400x600Following the unannounced departure as the two older Johnson boys take their shared sub on vacation during Spring Break (End Zone, Book 3), Kristina Barker is left feeling abandoned, disposable and hurt. A vague text message from her boyfriend/Dom, Bryon, makes her question the reality of everything she had grown to love—including him.

Being home alone while the other three explore the pleasures offered at Graye Manor wasn’t what she signed up for when she agreed to become part of the BDSM household. Heartbroken and discouraged, she turns to Domme Suzanne Bichat and discovers that her age-play aunt is also struggling with her relationship with Glenn, the youngest of the Johnson boys.

Both women decide that a change is in order, starting with a no limit/no restriction evening of action and adventure at a local bar—and no boyfriends or alpha males are around to stop them! However, too many drinks and a bout with a stripper-pole results in Suzanne’s ex-husband being summoned to drag the inebriated Domme from the club with little Krissy in tow. Sir Douglas Bichat, a handsome Brit and an honored dominant of The Gentlemen’s Club (TGC), employs his special skills as a loving, but firm, Daddy Dom and brings a sense of security and value to the two hurt girls.

Even while trapped in an unspoken love triangle with his ex-wife, and tormented by his own desire for her, Doug hold true to TGC’s Code of Conduct and places Suzanne’s needs above his own. With Krissy’s help, he finds a way to draw Glenn into the mix and ensure Suzanne’s happiness.

Little does he know that a void in his heart would soon be filled as the four of them grow into a family based on old-fashioned values and loving discipline. With Krissy as a niece, Glenn as his mentee, and, surprisingly, Suzanne as a Middle, Doug’s hands are happily filled with teddy bears, model ships, ice-cream cones, sand castles, and an occasional paddle to be applied to a cheeky bottom.

The week of Spring Break transforms each of them as the past is revealed, the future is uncertain, and the present exposes lust, temptation, unbridled sexual delights, and regrets. With the support of her new ‘parents’ and ‘brother,’ Krissy prepares for Bryon’s return home where he will be confronted with the truth and a decision that could permanently shatter the foundation of love and trust.

YES! There is more!
Be watching for Rob and Cassie’s wedding at Graye Manor, a shocking surprise, and the reunion of two amazing Doms in Book 5- Unnecessary Roughness!

Breanna HayseAbout the Author: BDSM/AP lifestyler Breanna Hayse strives to give her readers truth and reality of the BDSM/Age-Play/Total Power and Erotic Exchange lifestyle.

Who am I?

I’m a native Californian gone ‘wild’, and had the opportunity to travel the globe and discover the world through the eyes of both a Marine Intelligence specialist and a BDSM lifestyler. I left the service to go into hospice nursing and grief counseling, eventually working as a marriage and family therapist for those involved in alternative lifestyle development. This experience has allowed me to gain unique inspiration for my books and offer realistic plots and relatable characters.

In 2004, my husband, John, and I joined forces to work with both submissives and dominants- teaching, training, listening and loving. Our goal was to take the mystery and fear out of the lifestyle and mentor people in safe, consensual and healthy relationships.

My first book, The Game Plan, was published in 2012 and opened the door to the now-booming world of Age-Play literature. Since that time, I’ve devoted my ‘spare’ time to writing, researching, community involvement, and private and group pro bono counseling in deviant behavior, alternative lifestyle, and addiction recovery.

I was formally ‘dungeon trained’ as a Domme before discovering my submissive side when I joined the service. My scenarios are pulled primarily from either personal experience or observation, including spending time in BDSM clubs as the safety/medical officer. My multi-faceted background allows me to glean from many avenues and give a unique and intelligent literary experience through elements of fantasy and fiction. I also discuss the questions and psychology of the lifestyle in a manner that is fun and informative, and based on ‘the real deal.’

I live with my husband, musician, and fellow-author, John Hayse, and two border collies in southern California. We practice a 24/7 D&S relationship with speckles of AP (and many trips to Build-A-Bear), and happily spend every moment together that we can. My hobbies include my puppies, hiding my vanilla salt-water taffy where John can’t find it, exotic art, collecting inspirational trinkets, and developing my own paddle line. You can also see me as a featured author/instructor in professional conference settings and as a Sexpert for kinkyliterature.com.
