Gardner’s Syndrome — Knowledge is Power

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , on June 20, 2011 by Michelle Polaris

I’m joining the effort to pass on information about a very scary, little known genetic and terminal disease called Gardner’s Syndrome. One very devoted and lovely Ellora’s Cave fan has been devastated by this illness, losing her husband to it and in real danger of losing her children as well. She has asked people read and forward the below information to spread knowledge about this syndrome. Knowledge means money and attention to research and boy is it needed. No matter how horrendous our lives, we as a species need hope. This fan reads erotic romance to escape her reality and remember love, excitement and romance. That in itself is one kind of hope. Let’s give her another by spreading the word. Permission to forward the below is granted.

LIGHT THE NIGHT FOR GS

Gardner’s Syndrome/familial adenomatous polyposis is a chronic, incredibly
painful and terminal disease that approximately 200,000 American men, women and
children endure without hope for a cure, and Americans are not the only ones
affected—it hits every age group, ethnicity, and country on the planet. There is
little to no research being done, little medical knowledge to help the doctors
who deal with it (I was told by a doctor that all he knew of it came from ONE
paragraph from one of his medical textbooks that he more or less memorized to
pass an exam while in med school), and often, by the time the diagnosis is made,
the damage done is far too extensive to hope for much quality of life.

Worse still, the average life span for anyone is 35-40 (meaning age at time of
death, not how long you have after diagnosis); far too frequently, however,
children and teenagers are struck down before they can ever have anything
resembling a life.

There are no celebrities to help publicize the need for help or to educate the
public, nor are there organizations offering support and help to those who
suffer it, or for their families; medical poverty is the norm, along with
guesswork from medical teams and abandonment by families, spouses, and friends.

It’s more than time for a change, it’s time for action. On August 17, 2011, we
are asking that everyone who reads these words join us in lighting the darkness
of ignorance by making luminarias and lining their driveways, walkways, porches
and/or any path that leads to their front door.

Let the world know there is a danger, a nightmare no one knows about, and share
hope with those who have little by lighting their darkness.

I’ll be lighting the first one, and on it will be written my husband’s name and
the date of his death on one side, and on the other, LIGHT THE NIGHT FOR
GARDNER’S SYNDROME.

Please email this to everyone you know; forward it, post it on a blog, print it
up and put it on bulletin boards….but share it. Don’t let one more person die
because the night stayed dark.

Delilah Devlin’s 1-800 Release!

Posted in 1-800-DOM-help, erotic romance novels, kink, New Release with tags , , , on May 13, 2011 by Michelle Polaris

Woohoo! It’s release day for the next 1-800-DOM-help book today. Begging For It, by Delilah Devlin, is out today at Ellora’s Cave. Below is the blurb:

She needs punishment…before she deserves pleasure

Tragedy scarred TJ Lipton. Now the only way she can find pleasure is when it’s delivered with a heavy-handed dose of S&M. But finding a lover who can give her what she needs proves and elusive quest–until she finds the sex club Unfettered and a Dom named Cross McNally.

Cross understands all too well what drives TJ. He takes command of her body to give her everything she needs–restraint, the stinging kiss of a flogger, the thrill of a three-way–a sexual adventure that pulls her beyond her painful past and has her begging for more of  his tender brand of domination.

Go check out the story. Here’s the link to the excerpt.

And as always, here is the teaser for the series. There are so many fantastic tales in this collection, you’ll enjoy going back and reading them all.

The Magic

The magic begins with the appearance of the business card. Sleek black print on a pristine white background—unassuming in its appearance. Those brave enough to call the number will begin a journey that will explore their greatest desires.

Once the call is made, the Operator goes to work. Somehow he knows just what every caller needs, always able to find the answer the caller seeks.  

Callers may be directed to Unfettered, a new club in town, one nobody has heard of. It provides a safe haven for all who enter. Members are free to explore their every desire…even those they weren’t aware of. Little do they know Unfettered will disappear once those yearnings have eased.

Submissives who don’t know how to handle their Dominants. Masters looking for the perfect sub. People who need just a little push to admit vanilla isn’t their favorite flavor. The card finds them all.

And once you dial 1-800-DOM-help anything can happen.

Safe, sane and consensual,

Michelle

Celebrate Desiree’s 100th Release!

Posted in 1-800-DOM-help, erotic romance novels, New Release with tags , , , , , , , on April 15, 2011 by Michelle Polaris

 This month Desiree Holt celebrates her 100th release with Downstroke from Ellora’s Cave. Downstroke is the story of lovers, reunited after twenty years, trying to bridge a gulf of bitterness while outwitting a killer.

It’s been twenty years since Charley Roper and Dallas Creed parted with great bitterness. In that time she’s made a career for herself with the FBI and private security and he’s been a country rock music icon…tumbled to the bottom and risen again. Now someone’s trying to kill him and Morgan Creed wants Charley to protect his brother and find out who’s after him. When they meet again after all this time it’s obvious the chemistry is still there, stronger than ever. They’re older but are they wiser? Caught up in the bitter wash of memories and the tension of a killer in stalking mode, Charley and Dallas begin a roller coaster ride that is emotional, erotic and suspenseful.  Is their love strong enough after twenty years to pull them back together? 

As part of the celebration, Desiree is giving away a prize every day of the reader’s choice from her backlist. Names will be drawn from those who post comments and a grand prize of a refurbished Netbook with digital DVD drive will be awarded to one lucky winner. After you (the reader) post, go to Desiree’s web site at www.desireeholt.com  and enter to win the grand prize.

And to help her celebrate I’m giving you a taste of one of her other books. Below find an excerpt from one of her recent books, Delight Me, part of the 1-800-DOM-help series in which I’m also a part.

Delight Me excerpt:

The room was redolent with the scent of the cinnamon candles. Dani Maguire ducked her head, trying to find a breath of clean air. Alan loved the scent of cinnamon. Even insisted she drop cinnamon-scented crystals in the water when she bathed. But she’d reached a point where the aroma of cinnamon nearly made her gag.

Or maybe it was Alan Powell who made her gag. Two years in this relationship and try as she might, lately she couldn’t seem to find the key to make it work. He was a loving Dom, demanding but considerate, yet something deep inside her kept rebelling.

Still kneeling on the floor, hands manacled behind her, lips aching from stretching around the girth of Alan’s cock, she wondered where they could go from here. She didn’t love him. The sex was still great but she no longer found it…fulfilling. And that presented a problem.

Alan bent to unlock the handcuffs and used his hands beneath her elbows to help her rise. His tall, lean body dwarfed her small one, surrounding her with his masculinity, a sensation she usually enjoyed. But lately everything seemed to be just a little off.

“I worked you hard tonight,” he murmured, long fingers brushing her hair back from her face. “I’m going to draw a hot bath for you, with those salts that you like, and bathe you just the way you always enjoy it.”

But did she enjoy it? Did it please her? Or had it become an irritant? What she really wanted was to bathe him.

Get over it, Dani. You’re just going through a phase.

But was she?

She stayed in the same position until Alan lifted her and carried her to the bathroom, lowering her gently into the fragrant bath. The heated water stung the skin of her ass where Alan had disciplined her earlier. She’d been less than enthusiastic about using her mouth on him, and although she’d done her best to hide it, he’d been all too aware of it. Bending her over the bed, he’d used the thin quirt on her, striping her buttocks with ten well-placed strikes.

When he finished, he’d lowered her to the floor, held her mouth open with his fingers and worked his cock back and forth across her tongue. Somehow she’d dredged up a semblance of desire and given him the release he needed. She knew he wasn’t happy but when he finished he hadn’t said a word. Simply bent down to kiss her and went to draw the bath.

“Just relax,” Alan murmured, squeezing the bath sponge. “You know I’ll take care of you. Don’t I always?”

Yes, he did. But somehow over the past few months she found herself enjoying it less and less.

“Dani?” His voice sharpened. “I asked you a question.”

She blinked her eyes. “Yes, Master. You do.”

That wasn’t the question she needed to answer though. She needed to understand why that care had suddenly become so suffocating. Why she had begun to resent it in little ways.

One of his large hands cupped the back of her head, bracing her body as he skimmed the sponge over her breasts. She closed her eyes and tried to relax at the light-as-a-feather touch. A pinch on one nipple startled her and her eyes flew open. Alan’s eyes were staring directly into hers, a strange look playing over his face.

“Tell me to pinch your nipples again,” he commanded.

She swallowed. “Pinch my nipples again, Master. Please.”

He took each one in turn between thumb and forefinger and squeezed them hard enough that lust shot straight to her core, making the inner muscles of her cunt flutter.

“Well, that hasn’t changed.” His voice had an oddly hard edge to it.

Desiree is one of many talented ladies in this author collaboration including: Samantha Cayto, Christine d’Abo, Delilah Devlin, Gail DeYoung, Delpine Dryden, Francesca Hawley, Shayla Kersten, Kathy Kulig, Marianne LaCroix, Marilu Mann, Emma Petersen, Allie Standifer, and Ari Thatcher. Check out the 1-800-DOM-help blog to catch up on the latest in this series.

Roses and Chains — Sexy and Amazing

Posted in 1-800-DOM-help, erotic romance novels, kink with tags , , , , , on April 1, 2011 by Michelle Polaris

I’m jumping up and down today because Delphine Dryden’s book, Roses and Chains, the next installment in the 1-800-DOM-help series has been released. I’ve read this story folks and it rocks. The characters sparkle and their relationships ring true. The sexual interaction is hot of course. You know its well written when my usual preference for female dominants and plenty of male/male material is swept aside and I’m loving every moment of the f/f/m story with a fresh portrayal of a male dominant.

Here’s the blurb:
Take one adorable suburban couple just starting to realize their D/s relationship isn’t quite enough to satisfy. Add one cute and quirky sub who can’t seem to find a Dom to suit her tastes. Place them in a room full of sex toys and candlelight, roses and chains…

And after a few smoking-hot nights of pleasure and exploration, all three just might find what they’re looking for.

So click here to take a peek at the book at Elllora’s Cave. Then buy it. It’s worth it.

Safe, sane and consensual,
Michelle
