Today, we have the pleasure of hosting HC Brown. I have never read anything by this author but I’ve promised myself that once the review pile becomes more manageable, I will. She has an extensive backlist of BDSM books, most of them in the gay genre.

Anyway, here is what she has to say….

BDSM has many flavors but before I discuss the reasons, why I write this genre, I feel I should mention the inherent risks of BDSM. Apart from the obvious physical, the intensity of a D/s relationship may have emotional consequences.  Many people do not understand the complexities of BDSM.  The myths surrounding this culture can often damage a person’s relationships with family or others. Sadistic, brutal sadists are not true dominants. Rape is never an option and scenes are always consensual.



In my books, I like to portray a compassionate Dom. That isn’t to say he can’t be a badass. All my Doms have some emotional flaw that only a perfect submissive can fix.



To be honest, I don’t know any submissive who would put their body and emotions in the hands of a Dom they didn’t trust.  In all scenes, there is a transfer of power from submissive to Dom. The Dom may be in charge but his love and respect guides his hand to the amount of discipline his sub needs for fulfillment.



I like to build a relationship between sub and Dom, one that grows into an enhancement of their love. After all, the delight of any D/s relationship is the enrichment of sex. I enjoy taking my characters though an assortment of sexual pleasures from simple bondage to more aggressive stimulation.  My stories take my readers through a rollercoaster of emotions but they always have a happy ending.



I am giving away three PDF copies of my books today, winner’s choice. Leave a comment with your details.


My next BSDM M/M Erotic Romance is “Hurt Me Good” to be published by Dreamspinner Press in November.

  1. The stakes of BDSM seem so much more compelling in an m/m book. M/F BDSM often seems to fall into gender-role cliches for me, but there’s so much more ambiguity about what to expect in a relationship between two men. It feels riskier, and often sexier. (I love BURN, by the way…)

  2. There’s an entirely different energy in a M/M or F/F scene — and at a lot of the larger weekend BDSM events separate dungeons are made available for men-only or women-only play.

    Thanks for the amazing giveaway!

  6. I liked reading your interesting post. I don't quite understand all the dynamics of a D/s relationship, actually I have a difficult time trying to wrap my head around most of it. I do enjoy reading a good story about two people who are drawn together and trust each other.
    Do you write all M/M stories?

    No, I write many different couplings and genres. I have a M/F story co written with Keva D, "Sea Games" coming out with Liquid Silver Books 8 Oct. "Dragonfae" a M/F fantasy with Total-E-Bound later in the year.
    "Betrothed to the Enemy" historical, is another M/F published

  8. Thank you for your insight, I think that people should be aware of the true nature of things and not go around making judgments. Thanks, Carin mawmom at gmail dot com

  9. I loved how you made sure to tell the difference between a Dom and just someone who wants to hurt/abuse someone. I would think that it is completely crucial to have absolute trust in the person you are participating with. That is probably why I am sticking to books right now, I don't know anyone I can trust that much right now.

  10. @June M.

    You are wise. A D/s relationship is based on trust and sometimes it takes a long time to find the right person.
    There are many levels too, start off slow if you must and build the trust. But never rush into something out of your control. Most 'real' Doms are respectful and value their subs.

  11. Thank you for the post & the chance at this giveaway. Very informative. I have read many BDSM books this summer. Most are written very well & I enjoy reading more by those authors. I find myself getting pulled into these books & that's why I love reading.
