I was recently surprised to learn that Magician’s Chains, my male/male contemporary fantasy Fae BDSM erotic romance, has been released in print. This is the book whose foreign rights were sold to a Japanese publishing company. So if you’re dying to own a book of mine in print, go visit www.jasminejade.com and order your very own copy. It’s quite hot I do say so myself.

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.

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.

Excerpt:

“Look at you. You can’t sleep on that. I’ll sleep there. You sleep in the bed,” Dana said.

“No. I’ll take the floor.”

“And freeze your ass off.” She took a breath and lowered her voice. “Jack, we’re not a couple of teenagers. I thought we were friends. We don’t have to have sex just because we’re in the same bed.”

He craved to hold her through the night, nuzzle his cheek against her breasts, curve his body against her round bottom, listen to her breathing while she slept. But to do so would be torture. To feel her close throughout the night without fucking her would drive him mad. If he had a D/s scene with her, he might be able to relax and get some sleep. He doubted he’d be getting much sleep.

He’d turned his back toward the bed, so he couldn’t watch her but she hadn’t crawled into bed yet. She walked across the room and at first he thought she was stirring the fire. Instead she came out of the closet with the flogger, straps and a rope.

She laid them out across the bed then walked over to him and knelt in front of the loveseat and bowed her head. “Please, Master. Show me. I want to learn. I want to understand why I was scared by watching Shannon and Damon and at the same time so turned on. I can’t bear the thought of leaving Ireland at the end of summer without understanding these feelings. Every time I think of them, I get horny.”

A knot formed in his chest. Oh, hell. She was a sub and didn’t even know yet. He’d have to take extra care with this one. It scared the hell out of him. She might realize this wasn’t for her and panic in the middle of a session. He didn’t want to do anything to hurt her. He’d never been with a sub who was so green.

She let out a huff, spun on her heels and marched over to the bed. She picked up the leather cuffs and started strapping them around her wrists. “Dana, don’t.”

She gave him a pained looked. After unhooking the cuffs, she yanked her sweatshirt over her head. The firelight made her smooth skin glow and he noticed her nipples were hard. Her breasts were beautiful. Not huge, but perfectly shaped. Struggling with the wrist restraints, she managed to secure them to her wrists with the short length of chain dangling between the cuffs. Picking up the flogger, she walked over to Jack and knelt before him again, head bowed and raised the flogger to him. “Please, Sir, I need to know.”

His breath caught as he gazed at her naked from the waist up, wearing his baggy sweatpants that barely hung on her hips. Far from the exotic fetish wear he would see women in at the club Unfettered, but so sexy. He stood and took the flogger from her. “You need to know what, slave?” It took a conscious effort to keep his voice firm and in control.

She let out a long breath. “I need to know if pain gives me pleasure.”

He closed his eyes and took a breath. Oh, hell. She’s definitely a sub. His cock twitched in response and rose to attention. Willing himself to remain in control, he pointed to the chair. “Get into your original position.”

“Yes, Master.”

Why Writing Kinky Erotic Romance is an Act of Feminism

Posted in erotic romance novels, kink with tags , , on March 12, 2011 by Michelle Polaris

The following TED video of Courtney Martin about reinventing feminism made me realize that writing BDSM erotic romance is a feminist act. Okay, maybe the speaker doesn’t touch on this point explicitly, but there’s nothing she says that contradicts the idea.

A meaningful life, she says, is about:

Embracing the paradox
Acting in the face of overwhelm
Loving people well

By her definitions, many people I know are feminists. More than would identify themselves as such. When I write female characters, they are powerful figures. Usually they are Domme’s. But ironically, these strong women who wield their control, both physically and psychologically, are making a statement that they are also vulnerable. The paradox of this position, of strength and vulnerability is part of this life well lived. I’d also argue that BDSM, both sides of the whip, acknowledges and faces the experience of being overwhelmed. And it can also be quite an expression of love. My female characters depend on their submissives to honor their control and power. They take as much risk as their subs. Life is a risky business.

Mistress Mine – The Next 1-800 Release!

Posted in 1-800-DOM-help, kink with tags , , , , on February 16, 2011 by Michelle Polaris

Let’s give it up for Samantha Cayto, the next author in the 1-800-DOM-help collaboration to release a book. Mistress Mine is for sale today at Ellora’s Cave, and I want everyone to click over and take a look. Isn’t the cover fantastic? This story has the fun distinction of being both a Cougar and a FemDom tale. If you haven’t checked out this new series, you are missing out. This is the sixth book, all of them stand-alone, that features a mysteriously appearing business card imprinted with the 1-800-DOM-help hotline number, offering help for women and men in the BDSM community facing their own unique problems.

Here’s the blurb:

FBI agent and ex-military man Trey Boudreau likes to be in control and issue orders. But the bedroom is not a battlefield. His secret desire is to submit his body to a strong, older woman. He discovers a card that promises him the right one to bring him to his knees.

Juliette Coyne is a Domme determined to overcome a past experience that left her questioning her ability in the lifestyle. She is challenged by Trey, a strong, younger man in need of a good lesson or two. Old habits die hard, however, and the past continues to haunt them. Trey and Juliette grapple with each other and themselves for control, trust and a future together.

Enjoy!

Valentines and Kink at 1-800-DOM-help

Posted in 1-800-DOM-help, holidays, kink with tags , , , , , , , , , , on February 14, 2011 by Michelle Polaris

VALENTINE’S DAY! 

Some folks are celebrating with flowers, chocolate or jewelry. Some with romantic dinners or dates to the movies. In the Ellora’s Cave 1-800-DOM-help series, the heroes and heroines are celebrating in their own kinky way. The gracious ladies of this new collaboration have permitted me to post small teasers from their books, with windows peeking  into the Valentine’s celebrations of their characters. So read on and check out the five wonderful stories now on sale at Ellora’s Cave.

Delight Me by Desiree Holt:

Dani suspects her growing dissatisfaction with the lifestyle suggests she might be in need of a role reversal. When she finds a mysterious business card, she calls the number, 1-800-DOM-help, and is paired with Ethan, a sexy-as-sin sub. Dani learns the erotic effects of wielding the whip and the intense arousal that stimulating her sub with toys can bring.

As their sessions progress, Dani and Ethan explore every aspect of D/s play—from restraints to punishment to exercising control to achieve mind-blowing orgasms—and Dani comes to understand the value of receiving trust, as well as giving it. But her newfound, strong emotional feelings for Ethan scare her to death. Their current course could change her life forever—if she’s brave enough to accept what’s being offered.

And for Valentine’s? Ethan’s present to Dani is a short crop with their initials burned into the leather handle. Dani gave Ethan new male nipple clamps and cock ring with a tiny heart on it. Their Valentine’s is looking promising indeed.

 

Next up!

 

Fettered Love by Michelle Polaris:

Kirk, Master to his long-time lover Evan, decides it’s time to place his permanent collar around Evan’s sexy cock. But when he proposes, he faces a surprise. Evan wants a child. So where will they find a kinky woman to help?

A mysterious card with the 1-800-DOM-help number advertises assistance for unusual problems in the BDSM community. When Evan calls, he recognizes the voice of Sarah—Kirk’s best friend from childhood, Evan’s Mistress of several years in college. They both loved her and suffered betrayal when she walked out of their lives.

Now she proposes to be the mother of their child. No strings, just a chance to have the men she respects and loves back in her life. Evan embraces the idea while Kirk rages with mistrust.

At Evan’s request, they share one night of passion, Kirk and Sarah working together to dominate Evan in the scene of his erotic fantasies, hoping it will be enough to rekindle trust and make all their dreams come true.

For Valentine’s Kirk and Sarah have presented Evan with a leather apron for the kitchen. Of course they expect him to wear the apron and nothing else as he prepares a sumptuous meal for his Master and Mistress to celebrate the holiday. On second thought, they might let Evan wear his harness and butt plug with the apron, for everyone’s enjoyment. Kirk and Evan plan to surprise Sarah with a gorgeous leather dress for festive occasions out on the town and in the D/s clubs. And Evan has splurged on a new piece of dungeon equipment for Sarah and Kirk. A gorgeous wood framed cage. He’s hoping his Mistress and Master will lock him in there and indulge in their own wild lovemaking while all he can do is watch. He’s betting the tease and arousal of it will be pleasurably frustrating. 

Next up!

Needing Harte by Marilu Mann:

Harte Donovan has a problem. A murder leads to him wanting a sexy stripper bound and naked in front of him. He can’t let his secret desires ruin his career as a detective. But when he’s given a mysterious business card, Harte discovers a side of himself he intends to fully embrace.

Ramey Nichols strips for a living and he’s not willing to pretend to be something he’s not. When this sexy submissive meets the closeted cop and unwitting Dom, something has got to give. That something might just be Ramey. Ramey knows what he wants, and more than that, finds himself Needing Harte.

A Valentine’s teaser:

Ramey stepped back surveying the scene he’d set. Harte had told him he would be home by seven, but Ramey had learned that life with a cop was anything but predictable. With this being their first Valentine’s Day, he wanted everything to be perfect. Harte’s beloved jazz music played softly in the background and Ramey had lit some incense in the bedroom because he knew the scent would linger without the danger of starting a fire. He’d set the table with gleaming white dishes on a red tablecloth. A bottle of red wine sat opened by Harte’s place just waiting to be poured. He’d made a stew just in case dinner was
delayed. With a Master like Harte that was highly probable.

The kicker though, was the crystal vase he’d just set in the middle of the table. Ramey couldn’t wait to see his Master’s face when Harte saw the multi-colored roses. He adjusted them one more time making sure that the three leather flogger roses were in the center. This was going to be a great Valentine’s Day. Harte would laugh because Ramey frequently said, “Screw the roses. I want the thorns.” Now they could have both. Though not overly demonstrative in public, Ramey knew Harte had no problems at all showing his pleasure – or displeasure – in the privacy of the home they’d made together. Glancing around the living room, he marveled at the changes they’d both made to co-exist. They’d managed to mesh his more relaxed Bohemian style with Harte’s more conservative one to make a comfortable and inviting home.

Ramey heard the door open and dropped to his knees. “Welcome home and Happy Valentine’s Day, Master.”

Next up!

 

 Controlling Interest by Francesca Hawley:

Mozelle “Mouse” Vincent inherits money, a club and her boss’ son as a business partner when society leader Regine Stuart dies. Torin Stuart knows what his late mother’s wishes were for his exclusive BDSM club, Erotically Bound, but he’s pissed that he’s forced to trust Mouse—especially when her inherently submissive nature arouses the sexual Dominant in him.

After baring all in a heated, intense scene, Mouse realizes they still have to work together, but now Tor challenges any business suggestion she makes. When she wants to offer education classes, Tor dares her to organize the class and participate—as a submissive.

To his chagrin, Mouse agrees, but he can’t stand the thought of any other Dom touching her. Suddenly there’s far more at stake than the controlling interest in their club…because love is the ultimate prize in their power exchange.

A Valentine’s overview by Francesca:  In Controlling Interest, my contribution to the 1-800-DOM-help series, Torin Stuart and Mozelle “Mouse” Vincent have known one another for six years and wanted each other for the same length of time. Circumstances throw them together and together their business will either sink or swim based on whether they can work with one another instead of against each other. Since I write erotic romance, there is a happily ever after but it’s the journey that challenges them both.
 
To celebrate Valentine’s Day, Tor would give Mouse a beautiful collar. I went searching for lovely jewelry that would be an example of how deeply he feels about her. This stunning collar is made by an amazing artist, Lady Mockingbird. http://www.etsy.com/listing/62139951/lead-me-down-that-garden-path-locking .  Given Tor’s background, he would commission a piece made from 24K red and yellow gold. When he gave it to her, Mouse would cry. Trust me. 🙂

And finally, last, but certainly not least:

Commanding Acquisitions by Christine d’Abo:

Simon is a Dom who has become jaded, tired of the local scene. With his bookstore failing and personal life nonexistent, he’s looking for something different. The arrival of the mysterious 1-800-DOM-help business card gives Simon a chance for a change. The Operator directs him to Unfettered, a hot new BDSM club where Simon hopes to find a distraction for the evening. What he gets is a sexy sub offering himself up for a night of no-holds-barred sex, who then disappears with the dawn.

When the business consultant Simon hires turns out to be his mysterious sub, he knows he’s found a chance at happiness. But happiness comes at a price.

For Valentines?
Simon and Gavin have been enjoying the few moments they can catch together in between the booming success of Simon’s store and Gavin’s business trips. Gavin had talked about wanting to take things to the next level of play with Simon, so he was thrilled (and a little intimidated) to receive Electrosex Penis Bands and Electrosex Clamps from his Dom. He knew there would be many nights of electric fun to be had

I hope everyone’s Valentine’s is as delicious as the one the 1-800-DOM-help characters plan for one another. Be well. Be kinky (if the occasion calls for it). Be happy.

Safe, sane and consensual,

Michelle

Blogging Duo Dominants

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , on February 3, 2011 by Michelle Polaris

I’m blogging at my 1-800-DOM-help blogspot on the challenge of including two dominant characters in one’s BDSM poly triad love stories. You know, your everday run of the mill problem. I included the YouTube video I posted there below as well.

Visit Club Unfettered and Find Love

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , on January 28, 2011 by Michelle Polaris

Release day for me! Yes, Fettered Love is out this morning at Ellora’s Cave. I’ve so enjoyed being part of the series collaboration with the 1-800-DOM-help authors. And there are many more stories to come. Current series releases include those from: Christine d’Abo, Marilu Mann, Desiree Holt and Francesca Hawley. But the future will hold more stories from: Samantha Cayto, Ari Thatcher, Delphine Dryden, Kathy Kulig, Shayla Kersten, Delilah Devlin and Allie Standifer. 

I enjoyed writing Fettered Love. A special treat was to include a scene from one of my favorite museums in the story, the Isabella Stewart Gardner museum. And include one of my favorite paintings in their collection. Check the story out to see which one. I remember reading the book From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler when I was a child. In it, the child heroes are locked inside a museum at night and make their temporary home there. I kind of wish I could do the same in the Gardner museum. Or at least in its beautiful courtyard.

But it was also fun to visit Club Unfettered. Most of our series stories include this delicious club as a backdrop for helping our characters’ dreams come true. Unfettered is a place of mystery. Maybe one day we will even let you in on the secret of its origins. I’m such a tease. What ya gonna do? Spank me?

So once more for the sake of thoroughness, let me include the book blurb for Fettered Love.

Kirk, Master to his long-time lover Evan, decides it’s time to place his permanent collar around Evan’s sexy cock. But when he proposes, he faces a surprise. Evan wants a child. So where will they find a kinky woman to help?

A mysterious card with the 1-800-DOM-help number advertises assistance for unusual problems in the BDSM community. When Evan calls, he recognizes the voice of Sarah—Kirk’s best friend from childhood, Evan’s Mistress of several years in college. They both loved her and suffered betrayal when she walked out of their lives.

Now she proposes to be the mother of their child. No strings, just a chance to have the men she respects and loves back in her life. Evan embraces the idea while Kirk rages with mistrust.

At Evan’s request, they share one night of passion, Kirk and Sarah working together to dominate Evan in the scene of his erotic fantasies, hoping it will be enough to rekindle trust and make all their dreams come true.

Enjoy all!
