I love stories about strong, sexy Alpha males. There are lots of books out there, with billionaire Doms who require of their submissives strict adherence to their rules and demands. Those are great stories.
But when I started writing the Dream Dominant books, I wanted to do something a little different. I wanted to write about real people living out their Dom/sub lives in the real world, characters I hope readers can relate to. Like I stated in the Preface to FOR SPARROW,
The reality is that many regular couples, all around us, quietly live a Dom/sub dynamic every day. While sexual kink is an essential part of BDSM, there’s so much more to it than that. Beyond kinky sex, it’s a deeply intimate dance between two people who have embraced their true natures. At the very foundation, a Dominant craves to lead, and a submissive craves to follow.
Every D/s couple lives out this journey in their own way, but there are some commonalities. The sub is a strong person who willingly relinquishes control to someone stronger, his or her Dom. Together they work out to what extent this power exchange goes, whether it’s only in the bedroom, or it’s a 24/7 arrangement, or somewhere in between.
Often, there are rituals established by the Dominant, chores or assignments for which the submissive is responsible, all of which are intended to benefit the submissive. Knee time would be one example, a regular time when the sub kneels at the feet of her Dom and releases all the concerns of the day. It’s comparable to meditation, but in this instance, it’s a time of intimacy and bonding for the couple that has nothing to do with sex. Unless it ends in a blow job. But I digress.
The intimacy found at the heart of a D/s relationship is the stuff of pure romance. And that is where I think the truly great stories are.
So far, there are three novels in the collection. The stories are stand-alone, meaning they’re unrelated and can be read in any order.
Meet the Dream Dominants.
In LUKE & BELLA, photojournalist Luke McGillicutty fell in love so quickly with Bella Grant, his partner on the road, that he didn’t have time to mention the fact that he’s Dominant. If he tells her now, he could lose her forever.
Rugged mountain man Blake Walker, from LOST & BOUND, isn’t impressed with the bratty Hollywood actress staying at his family’s remote wilderness lodge. But could Shasta Pyke be the baby girl this Daddy Dom’s been looking for?
In FOR SPARROW, sexy firefighter paramedic Judd Farris promised to look out for new widow Jessi Crenshaw. Being a surrogate Dominant until she finds one of her own is an odd arrangement. It’s strictly platonic. But how long can they deny the attraction they both feel?
While the series currently includes three books, more are on the way, including a spin-off from LOST & BOUND featuring the characters Scott and Jackie. And I’m planning a spin-off from FOR SPARROW featuring sexy Dom, Master Mateo. But I still intend for the stories to be stand-alone. You won’t have to have read the others to enjoy them. But if you have, it will be fun to get to know these characters better.
