Carte Blanche

cover for Carte BlancheWhen a lobbyist opposed to vampires’ rights is found drained of her blood, Special Enforcer Grace Alkins investigates the woman’s connection to a local BDSM club and its vampire customers. It has been a long time since Grace played on this particular scene, but old habits return easily when she puts on the attire of Mistress Red.

On her first undercover visit at the club, however, she finds herself tricked into playing a scene with Ray, a submissive whose Master left town abruptly. The Dominant in her enjoys the opportunity – while the Special Enforcer is shocked to realize Ray is a vampire, and possibly a suspect for the murder she investigates.

Will Grace manage to keep a cool head and find the killer when every new meeting with Ray cranks up the heat a little more?

Excerpt from Carte Blanche

“Badge around your neck,” Hugo murmured. “And stake in hand. We’re not here to kill, but we better be prepared for anything.”

Grace nodded to show she understood, and readied herself as he had indicated. At her second nod, Hugo pushed the door open and stepped in first, calling out loudly:

“Keller Owens? I’m a Special Enforcer, and I need to talk to you. Do not attack, or you will be in breach of the law and I will have to kill you. All I want is to talk.” Continue reading…

Excerpt from Rules and Rewards

Grace’s heart always started beating wildly on those last few steps before she reached the fifth floor and Ray’s apartment. It wasn’t about the number of steps; her job as a Special Enforcer required her to remain in perfect shape, and a few flights of stairs didn’t tire her. Instead, it was the prospect of seeing him again that left her a little breathless so that she needed to calm down before she knocked. She didn’t doubt he would like to know how excited she became when she was about to see him, but she couldn’t allow it, just like she couldn’t allow anything that might hint she wasn’t in complete control of herself and everything else, including him.

Excerpt from Sunshine

The flogger touched Ray’s shoulder with all the force of a feather drifting on a light breeze. His hands squeezed the Plexiglas rod he held for support as he bent at the waist, and he dropped his head, shutting his eyes tight, clenching his teeth even tighter.

A cluck of tongue was the only reminder he needed. He raised his head again and forced his eyes open. The glass in front of him didn’t reflect his vampire body any more than a mirror would have, but it did reflect Mistress Red. She was wearing black from the tip of her high-heeled boots to the belt that cinched her leather pants, but her tight-fitting corset was red, like the fiery braid that rested on her bare shoulder.

“Better,” she said, her voice mild despite the threat of consequences if Ray broke position again. “Stay still now.” Continue reading…

Sunshine

cover for SunshineAfter years of living with his human Mistress Grace, the vampire and submissive Ray uses his safeword for the first time. He does so not because of physical pain, but because of the anguish he feels after losing his Sire.

Even though Grace accepts his need to withdraw from their domination games for a while, Ray soon decides that the weakness he showed by saying his safeword requires punishment. Will his Mistress agree with him and give him the pain he craves, or will she set him straight with a firm hand, and just a few drops of her blood?

Excerpt from Switching Sides

Ray took slow steps around the dance floor, his attention drifting from person to person until it stopped on a woman who danced on her own, arms wrapped around herself, head tilted down and her eyes half closed. A blue card was clipped to the hem of her short dress.

He remembered seeing her at the club before. He had a good memory for faces. He recalled watching her follow at least two different Doms into one of the play rooms, neither of whom he believed to be particularly attached to her; in any case, she wore no collar or other sign to show she had been claimed by anyone in particular. She wasn’t the only one who came to the club to satisfy her needs but who didn’t care to push things any further than that. It worked quite well for Ray’s purpose.

Stepping away from the periphery of the room, he walked to one of the armchairs placed around the dancing floor, directly opposite the woman. For the next few minutes, his gaze never left her as he waited, waited…

There.

Switching Sides – A Sizzling BDSM Vampire Short

Cover for Switching SidesRay’s relationship with Grace is usually simple: he is a vampire and her submissive, and she is Mistress Red, his Domme. Tonight, however, when they go to Carte Blanche, their favorite BDSM club, things are a little different. Ray isn’t a simple sub; he’s a switch, and sometimes his mood and needs are better suited to being on the Dominant side of the equation. When Grace suggests that he turn Dom for the night, there are only two questions: who will he play with… and how will Grace react when she sees him in this new role?
