I was intrigued by these women that wanted to lose control and these men who wanted to see to their every pleasure…I was hooked and her’s was one of the first books that really tested my boundaries.

Anyway, the brief was to tell us about something that appears in the authors books…lets hear what Bridget has to say…

Hello my sexy bitches!

I’m thrilled to have been asked to participate in Scorching Book Reviews’ BDSM Appreciation Event. I must admit. I started writing BDSM erotic romances because I didn’t understand the BDSM lifestyle. I think a lot of authors like myself write to challenge ourselves and to learn.

How I learned is by hanging out with a local BDSM group called Virginia Dommes and male submissives. I learned about domination from FemDommes. What I liked about learning from women is that when they did demonstrations, they allowed me to do hands-on training. I’ve paddled a submissive. I’ve done wax play. I’ve flogged a slave. I’ve also watched infusions, which is the practice of using an IV to add saline to different areas of the body to enlarge them. I watched needle play and figging, which is a punishment where a sliver of actual ginger root is inserted into the urethra. I know. Doesn’t sound sexy.

in which Carried Away features
What I find sexy about the BDSM lifestyle mainly had to do with the trust aspect. Is there nudity within the Lifestyle and during play? Of course. Are genitalia stimulated and manipulated? Absolutely. What’s prevalent is the level of trust one has to give to another to allow their bodies to be teased and, sometimes, tested. Both a Dominant and a submissive or slave must trust that the other person will respect each other’s decisions of what each expects within the Lifestyle. So what happens when one person in the relationship doesn’t trust himself or herself? I played with that idea in my lastest contemporary interracial BDSM erotic romance novella, “Carried Away” , available in ebook through Whispers Publishing and in a print anthology called Taken.

Here’s the blurb for “Carried Away”:

What happens when you can’t face your perfect man?

Summer Carter faces that dilemma as her two best friends, Kathryn Maynard and Leya Greenwood, convince her to honor their pact and take her adventure. She flees to a tropical Hawaiian paradise when she can’t face her online Dom, Xander. The reality of the relationship and what she really wants in a man is too much for her to face.

Xander Houston never saw himself as a Dom who would need to look for a submissive on a personals site. But when he encounters a witty and intriguing profile for a submissive named End of Summer, he strikes up a fast friendship with her. Months later, she still refuses to meet him face to face, and he tells her he’s going to take a break.

Coincidentally, both end up in Hawaii on separate vacations. When Xander finds her and figures out who she is, he cooks up a plan to sweep her off her feet, not as a Dom, but just as Xander.

When Summer discovers the truth, will she run away from her secret Dom or will she allowed herself to get carried away?

For this novella, I did have to stretch the levels of trust the Dom has to hide his identity while he sort of seduces the heroine into his Lifestyle. Don’t take my word for it. Here’s an excerpt.

Flutter’s blunt inquiry surprised him. Xander had been thinking about what he would want to do to her from their first online chat. He took a deep breath before admitting his fantasy.

“For a first session, I like to do more of a mindfuck than physical play. But I would mix the two. I would blindfold you first.” He undid the buttons on his shirt as he spoke. “I’d make you stand in the middle of the room, the middle of my dungeon in my house.”


Xander heard her swallowing hard through the computer. Flutter fidgeted in her chair. She drew her bottom lip in between her teeth and chewed on it.


He continued while he had her rapt attention. “I would walk around your body, talking to you the entire time. I would take my time undressing you, but I would let you keep your shoes on. You do wear sexy shoes, right?”


A smile peeked through her nervous countenance. “Sometimes.”


“Good. Once I have you naked, I’ll bind your hands behind your back.”


“Oh,” Flutter said on an exhale.


He removed his shirt. “With your hands behind your back, your chest sticks out nicely. Your nipples are so hard. They’re perfect for clamps. I hold one breast in my hand and secure a nipple clamp.”


“Oh God. Does it hurt?” She twirled her hair around her finger.


Xander smiled. “I don’t know. I know the women I’ve done this to have never complained.”


“You’ve played with a lot of women?”


“You’re getting off the subject.” He ran his hand over his chest. When she stared into the camera, she looked like she stared right at him. He couldn’t keep anything from her. “Yes, I’ve played with a lot of women. Just play. Nothing else.”


It looked like she exhaled at his admission.


He continued detailing his fantasy. “I would put a clamp on your other nipple. Then I would make you stand with your legs spread. I have this nice, soft deer hide flogger. I would use it on your pussy. You’re so wet I can smell you.”


Xander watched Flutter cross her legs. As hard as he’d become, he hoped she had become just as wet as he spoke.


“Wh-what else?” Her voice trembled.


If he stared at her chest long enough, he could almost see her heart pounding. “I would keep flogging your pussy until you feel like you want to come, but I won’t let you. Just when you think you can’t take any more, I stop flogging you and I come up to you. I grab your hair. Then I spank you. This time I let you come. You scream so loud.”


Xander had to stop or he would climax.
