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.

Emerald Dungeon Release Day!

Whoot! The seventh story in the 1-800-Dom-help series is out today at Ellora’s Cave! Emerald Dungeon by Kathy Kulig can be purchased to continue what I am sure is your addiction to these stories of Dominants and submissives finding the missing kinky ingredient to their lives after stumbling upon a mysterious business card.

Here’s a bit about Kathy: Kathy Kulig is the multi-published author of sexy romances. Her recent works include Damned and Desired, a 2011 EPIC Award finalist, Secret Soiree and Dragon Witch. Her stories enter both paranormal and contemporary worlds. Critics have described her writing as “very raw and hot”, “wonderfully unique” and “entertaining and captivating”. Kathy has taught workshops or participated on panels at Romantic Times Convention, NJ Romance Writers Conference, Romanticon and for other writers groups. Visit her online at

And let’s not forget the story blurb: When Dana, a harpist, gets a summer job in a medieval dinner show, she discovers a world of BDSM in the dungeon of the ancient Irish castle. Jack is a sexy Dominant who recognizes the submissive smoldering beneath the demure exterior. His skillful commands takes Dana beyond her darkest erotic fantasies. Secrets and strange events around the castle strain their relationship, and the appearance of a mysterious business card 1-800-DOM-help offers to guide them. Only with complete trust and surrender is ultimate pleasure and true love possible. 

Read on below for an over 18 only excerpt from her story. With St. Patrick’s Day just passed, I know you are all in the mood for a bit of green. And maybe you’re recovered enough from your celebration to sit down and focus on a story (grin). Enjoy, take care, and go check out Kathy’s book.

“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.”

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!

Delight Me!

Release day for my friend Desiree Holt! And one of my favorites, a Domme story. Desiree says writing this book helped her find her inner Domme (LOL). I only hope so. Every woman should do this. Please check out Delight Me, a story from the 1-800-DOM-help series by a fabulous group of Ellora’s Cave authors. You can read an excerpt here.


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.

Enjoy reading. Desiree’s stories are always a treat.
