my review of "Make Me Yours Evermore (Pierced Hearts 3)" by Cari Silverwood

So I was amused with myself as I debated if this book fits in the "Seductive Studs and Sirens" hop; in the end, I decided no because there are only some non-male/female moments later in the book, although one of the characters does identify as a BDSM switch and I think, within that, a bisexual. Some spoilers follow this and of course in the review, but in my recent reading about bisexuality and feminism, I really appreciated that Kat refuses to let the guys see her interacting with Zoe. Of course, this being a third book in a series, I appreciated getting to see bits about previous characters again. I do enjoy the dub/con, non/con aspect of this series; sometimes I find BDSM erotic romance puts such a focus on safewords that I'm irritated- IMHO safewords aren't the only way to ensure consent. I'm also looking forward to the 4th book in the series, set to release on the 23rd, Cari's books page on her website, http://www.carisilverwood.net/books.html , says that "Seize Me From the Darkness" is a standalone. I'm really looking forward to reading it.

MY REVIEW of "Make Me Yours Evermore (Pierced Hearts 3) by Cari Silverwood:

I don't know if I could write this review without spoilers :D but yes, my dominant (I'm a lifestyle submissive) asked me what got into me that I initiated sex this morning and I told Him about this book; He grinned and thanked her. So having read the first 2 books, I was ready for chapters told from the different main characters' points of view and Cari did not disappoint in this book. I thoroughly enjoyed Kat, Chris, and Andreas; the things their personalities brought to their chapters fascinated me. The chapters in Chris and Andreas' POVs were great; Chris figuring out what he wanted as a dominant and how the kidnapping situation was different from that and Andreas figuring out what he could morally and mentally deal with. Kat's struggles were particularly sensitive to me, as pieces of her past where in her mind, as she even shared them with Andreas (it took longer with Chris); I felt such empathy for her. As Chris' illegal connections continued to cause more problems, I loved the tension and then the introduction of the trafficked woman Zoe. Kat's immediate reaction to Zoe added some great moments and some female/female interaction that I found wonderfully erotic among all the male/female; I'd missed the female/female interactions involving Kat from the 2nd book in this series. The climax of the book was amazing- I'll leave you to read it yourself :D. I also loved the epilogues in Zoe and Pieter's POVs. I can't wait for the next book!

Is Vala a submissive? Gates of the Garden: Book Two snippet



Remember that I started Vala's Story as a gift from my dom, Tom. Remember that I was a little 20 year old, without the years of experience that I boast now. When the story had moved from Tom's birthday gift into a multi book-serial, I didn't have as many ideas, as much knowledge about BDSM titles, roles, identities as I do now. What I meant by "Vala is going to have sub and Dom training at the same time," I wasn't too sure of. There's a moment between Raanan and Vala that you'll have to read "Gates of the Garden: Book Two" to enjoy, to see why I'm questioning Vala's BDSM identity here.

A common question for authors of any genre- although erotic romance seems to have higher tendency to this question- is "how much of the story is based on you and your life?" It would seem that I'm answering that question in part in my first paragraph. My own BDSM identity is that of "lifestyle submissive" or "slave." My Master and I do use "Master/slave language," even though we live low protocol BDSM. While we identify as polyamorous, we don't have anything close to The Queen's leather family- hell, we're still trying to find "Ms. Right," whatever the qualifications are for such a woman when we're talking. :D I don't live within a hierarchy, with other slaves serving the same dominant. It's just me, trying to take care of as many of my Master's needs as I can, while running a house, raising a teen, taking care of an elderly dog, writing and publishing, and doing everything else that builds up my life. I am not at all a switch; I can't imagine doing what Vala does, switching her roles as allowed.

And now for a snippet of fiction leading up to my tease about Raanan and Vala...

From "Gates of the Garden: Book Two" Copyright Joelle Casteel 2014

"I decided to leave Vala home with Raanan. I want her to have more training before I take her on a big outing like this." The Queen moved his gaze from Iona to Vala. "I am leaving Raanan in charge of you. Understand?"

"Yes, my Queen." Vala bit her lip. The golden skinned, red haired hunk?

"What?"

"May I please ask, why Raanan, my Queen?"

"Because it is my decision." The Queen pulled the comforter over them and laid his head on a pillow.

And with that snippet, I tease at a plot twist in "Gates of the Garden: Book Two" that caused me to wonder why Vala's BDSM identity is.

BLURB:

Vala is very comfortable in her new life, her new name. She's hopelessly in love, with The Queen, with Iona, with life. She's learning about BDSM and knows The Queen has many surprises, lessons planned for her. She's looking forward to ceremony day...

The Queen considers, stresses, ponders. Sometimes he goes to Simon for help, especially since Tommy messed up so bad. He's considering things in the long term as he watches Vala blossom into what he wants her to be...

Things are settling down and they aren't for the rest of the stable. Tommy did so mess things up, but at least there's Vala's training to entertain, to occupy the stable as The Queen uses them in the ways he needs. Abrecan, Orlee, and Gaelan struggle to come to terms with what one decision did to their lives in the stable...

Please come along with Joelle on this journey, shared with the readers in serial fashion. A multitude of "Happily-ever-afters" are waiting with the completion of book 9.

Author's Note: This novel is meant for open-minded adults. Activities described include a wide range of BDSM and sexual activities, some of which are male/male, male/female, group sex, consensual slavery, oral/anal/vaginal intercourse, bondage. The story also covers some sensitive topics in characters' backstories, such as drug abuse, childhood abuse, religious abuse.

#WIPiTuP.... Master, Mommy, and Joey... AP and Master/slave in the bedroom

Sharing WIPs (works in progress) can be so very fun! On this lovely blog hop, enjoy a bunch of authors sharing excerpts of what they're working on- get ready to add some great books to your TBR, once the author publishes :) Although occasionally you may find an author sharing a published work. Give 'em a break- these may just be roughly edited- but please do leave a comment! We authors know we're going in a good direction.



The "online flirtation" of Master, Mommy, and Joey was well received last week so I thought I'd continue with the much requested "first time the 3 have sex." However, I had to tease Melody Parks and Meredith O'Reilly on Facebook by asking how much of the 3129 word scene I should share. That's a bit long to share, don't you think? I'm not sure I'll share more from this sex scene- after all, I am trying to finish "Mommy" so I can get it to BRs and then submit it to a publisher.

But here, Master has invited Mommy to come visit for a week. After a nice dinner at a Mongolian barbeque the first night of her visit, they adjourn to the bedroom. I've shared some flirtation as they undress and make it to the bedroom; this has yet to be considered in the "What's Rex [their dog] doing?" rewrite.

 I lay my head against Master's leg for a moment before leaning forward to kiss Mommy's hose-covered calf. I sipped my sparkling juice; this little play at my age playing was fun, I decided. Master and Mommy up on the couch enjoying the red wine He'd bought them. And I had my silly plastic kids' "wine flute" with the butterflies painted out it, the sparkling juice just tart enough not to be too far from wine.

Mommy giggled and I looked up. Her cheeks were a bit red, but I didn't think she was blushing.

Master's fingers danced along Mommy's collarbone.

"Little eyes," Mommy murmured.

"I haven't done much yet." Master's eyes had grown dark; I knew what that meant. "So how far do we take the role play? Is Joey really too young to see anything? Or maybe in this moment she's less your child and more my slave? My slave who enjoys seeing me with other woman so much that monogamous people just don't get it?"

Mommy touched my head. "What do you think, Joey? What are you comfortable with?"

I thought even as I gazed into Mommy's eyes. "In this moment, I feel like my Master's slave who really wants to see Him enjoying having sex with you, Mommy. Does that make you sad?"

"No, sweetie." Mommy patted my shoulder. "You're a complex woman with a complex sexuality. It's part of what drew me to you." She took my empty glass from me and placed it on the coffee table. She took my hand. "Come on, lovely."

Master led us into the bedroom. He turned me so I faced Mommy. One hand cupped my neck as he unzipped the dress. He pushed it off my shoulders, letting it fall to the floor. "Nice lingerie choice."

Mommy nodded. "I liked how it looked beside the romper."

I moaned, feeling the wetness between my legs at Mommy's word choice.

"Take off your socks, but leave the bra and panties on for now. Lay down on the bed."

"Yes, Master." I put my hand up on the wall to steady myself as I plucked one sock then the other off.

"May I?" Master's hand hovered in front of the top button on Mommy's rose colored blouse.

"Yes." Did Mommy's legs wobble just a bit?

Master eased the button out of its hole, His fingers slipping into Mommy's shirt. He continued down, one button after another, more of her skin showing at the silk fell away. He took the shoulders and lifted the shift off Mommy. His fingers brushed the cups of her bra; she moaned and her nipples pressed out of the fabric. His hands moved down her sides to her waist.

"Yes," Mommy whispered as Master’s fingers slipped into the pants' waistband.

Master pulled down, pulling the pants down Mommy's hips, down her thighs. He knelt in front of her as the fabric, so silky just like her blouse, pooled at her ankles.

Mommy placed a hand on Master's shoulders before she stepped out of the pants, one foot then the other, leaving her only in her pretty underthings.

Master groaned; His eyes were still darkened. His shaggy hair brushed His neck as He looked up at her face.

"Gonna stay there?" Mommy smiled playfully.

"I'd thought." Master kissed Mommy's calf. His hand moved up to her hip. He kissed again, this time moving inward. He urged with teasing fingers for her to part her thighs, just a bit, just enough for one hand to move up, touch brush her panties.

Mommy continued to balance against Master, her hand on His shoulder, the fingers curling in, clutching at Him. "You don't need to worry about asking at every point. It's not like this is BDSM that we need negotiated or anything."

Master smiled. "Good to hear." With fingertips, He pushed aside her panties, teasing lips. "I'm sure by now, Joey is thinking I'm teasing her. Am I teasing you?"

Mommy laughed. "Slow can be nice too." She glanced at me. "She is such a good girl. Her panties are still in place."

"Yes, a good girl." Master rose to His feet in front of Mommy. He studied her face for a moment before wrapping His arms around her waist. He paused a moment before He moved in for the kiss, their lips meeting in the way I'd hoped for since Mommy arrived. The kiss continued, the dominant mouths stepping outside dominance and submission.

Mommy groaned, the sound caught by Master's mouth. She grabbed at His shoulders. "Bed," she murmured against His mouth.

Master walked them to the bed, Mommy walking backward, trusting Him, toward me where I'd been commanded to lay; I swore I would just watch and not be a distraction. He placed his hands on her thighs. "You are a beautiful woman."

Mommy's head fell back, her hair dragging across the pillows. Her lips parted. Lips. Parted. She shuddered and so did I. She scooted backward, more of her body on the bed.

Master undressed, watching Mommy move, His shirt flying to the floor before His jeans joined the pool of discarded clothing.

"Now let me take a look," Mommy demanded playfully.

Master stood up straight, arms folded against His chest.

"I can see why Joey fell for you." Mommy studied Master's body, her gaze moving up and down His length. "I need to have that cock in my mouth before we go to sleep."

Master grinned. "Sounds like a plan."

#Taboo2sday ... Left at Josephine's knees

8 to 10 sentences (or 100 words for bloggers/reviewers) of taboo erotica. Take a risk with me? :D


Related to the online flirtation that I shared last week for WIP it up Wednesday, I have a scene building with Master spanking Josephine/Joey with his hair brush, per agreement with Mommy/Mara. hairbrush spanking. While I can imagine I see the taboo differently in this, I'm excited to see what others guess :D. This is also the first serious BDSM activity after they adopt an Irish Wolfhound/mutt.

"On all fours, right here." Master patted the bed in front of him.

I crawled up onto the bed, wondering at Master's failure to order me to strip first. I barely felt the bed under me depressing with my weight. I stopped just shy of His big hand before I tightened my body into stillness.

Master patted my ass and I moaned at the warmth of His hand through my thin shorts. He grabbed their waistband and yanked them down to my knees. "Leave 'em there," He growled.

"Yes, Master."

Sighs at life and a link for a little fiction

I'm so sorry, my readers, I meant to have the second part of Mandisa and her girls post-ceremony in "Skipping Down the Primrose Path: Book Three," but alas I can't quite get into the writing with aging pup. My dog is about 14-ish years. Today won't be the trip to the vet day, hopefully not tomorrow either, but for a few scary hours, she couldn't stand on all four paws.

However I do have a link for you. Please enjoy this bit of The Queen and Vala having anal sex before her HIV/STD tests came back negative so they could stop using condoms. And know that I already have posts ready for Tuesday (Taboo Tuesday hop) and Wednesday (WIP it up Wednesday hop). I have plans to write on Thursday and Friday and am hoping for the emotional and mental energy for such. http://joellecasteel.blogspot.com/2013/04/you-wanted-to-see-queen-vala-do-anal.html

Two tastes from my sexy, romantic BDSM serial "Vala's Story"


I wanted to share a bit from my first Vala's Story serial book, "Out of the Night: Book One." This if from the end after Tommy has gone to get Iona from her room so The Queen, Tommy, Iona, and Vala can all go to sleep in their respective places.

Copyright © 2007-2014 Joelle Casteel

The Queen ran a finger down the middle of Tommy's chest and stomach, stopping just above the cock cage, moans pouring from Tommy the entire time. "I want to hear you tell me how very sorry you are for being a bad boy one last time before I go to sleep." He tenderly kissed the darkest welt on Tommy's chest.

"I... I'm sorry... with every ounce of my being, my Queen. I never want to make you that angry again, my Queen. I just want to please you, my Queen. I just want to be your good little boy, my Queen," Tommy wept.

The Queen inhaled deeply. "I believe I shall sleep very well knowing that you are so close to me." He kissed Tommy. "Good night, Tommy. Have faith that tomorrow I may decide to give you the release you so desperately crave right now."

The Queen let his gaze roam across his two slaves on their sleeping boards before sighing contentedly and joining the one in his bed. He slid under the covers, pulled Iona close to him, and wrapped his arms around her. The moment his head touched his pillow he fell fast asleep; the day had been very strenuous for him.

BLURB:

Restless and world-weary, Mearr isn't about to admit she needs anyone's help, even this gorgeous man who has taken her into his home. Well one of his homes and part of this huge family she's heard about but not met all of. She's young, looks young, and knows it but at least she's legal now so she can pick a new name to go with her new life...

The Queen knows he wants Mearr bad, ever since the first time he saw her in the window of the coffeehouse. He has his plan, but even a Dominant's plans don't always survive the unpredictability of the future. He struggles to figure out this temperamental woman he's brought home, how best to help her. Then he takes her to his mansion...

They wait patiently for The Queen to bring Mearr home. Well to the home they've been redecorating for Him and for the hopes that she'll become part of their family and be trained to please Him. Simon and Tommy have seen her, of course, being The Queen's right and left hands; they say she'll be a perfect addition...

Please come along with Joelle on this journey, shared with the readers in serial fashion. A multitude of "Happily-ever-afters" are waiting with the completion of book 9.

Author's Note: This novel is meant for open-minded adults. Activities described include a wide range of BDSM and sexual activities, some of which are male/male, male/female, consensual slavery, oral/anal/vaginal intercourse, bondage. The story also covers some sensitive topics in characters' backstories, such as drug abuse.



And since you got to enjoy the going to bed scene with The Queen, Tommy, Iona, and Vala (although I admit the excerpt I shared was all about The Queen and Tommy :D), I'm continuing into "Gates of the Garden: Book Two" with the next morning. Again we get to enjoy the focus on The Queen and Tommy. I do love my men.

Copyright © 2014 Joelle Casteel

The Queen woke first. His expression soft and adoring, his gaze moved over the three slaves asleep in his room. How good it was to have them close.

Iona, relaxed in deep sleep, moaned softly; he held her fingers as they curled against his chest. Restless with dreams, Vala struggled against her bindings. Tommy stared at The Queen's bed.

The Queen sat up and watched Tommy's gaze move from the bed to his face. He crawled to the edge and looked down at Tommy. "Good morning, pretty boy. Did you sleep well?"

Tommy groaned. "Yes, my Queen."

"Is your cock hard for me, my baby boy?" The Queen hopped out of his bed and walked to Tommy.

Tommy took a deep, shaking breath as The Queen sank to his knees. "My obedient cock is... very... hard... for you, my Queen. I... beg you... to touch... me, my Queen."

The Queen traced the welts on Tommy's chest.

Tommy cried softly, his gaze moving over The Queen's intent face. "I love you, my Queen," he whimpered.


"I love you too, my adorable, helpless baby boy." The Queen brushed his lips across Tommy's face.

BLURB:

Vala is very comfortable in her new life, her new name. She's hopelessly in love, with The Queen, with Iona, with life. She's learning about BDSM and knows The Queen has many surprises, lessons planned for her. She's looking forward to ceremony day...

#SeductiveSnS my review of "Took My Breath Away" by Thianna D.

Seductive Studs and Sirens... a blog hop for LGBT romance, erotica, and erotica romance... 150 words of love from a non-heterosexual perspective. Enjoy my post and then check out the other hoppers with the links below.

I needed some male/male action and decided that our own Thianna D's book would do me good. I hadn't finished "Took My Breath Away" yet even though she's finished her trilogy. So many great streams of tension and drama in this book- the lead up to and the actual visit in New York with Logan's father's family, the men figuring out what it might look like for them to be in a domestic discipline relationship (which both of them want), a variety of family relationships to cause problems for both men. Everything in the book was so emotionally charged and I felt constant empathy even as I flipped the pages to see how Christian and Logan would deal with their struggles that were often so close to my own. You can read my full 5 star review on Goodreads, although I warn you that there are spoilers in it. https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/1053306297
