Release Party with Giveaway for Her Master's Kiss 5 and Guest Blog with Author Vivien Sparx

Six months after the tragic loss of their baby, Renee and Stefan are struggling to hold together their fragile romance. Renee is desperate to return to a lifestyle of BDSM, but Stefan steadfastly refuses.
"We can't go backwards."
"No - but we can come full circle!" Renee pleads.
And so begins Renee's greatest challenge - to convince Stefan that BDSM is essential to their relationship, and the one thing that can save their marriage and rekindle the fires of their passion. With the help of Tink and Master Peter, Renee risks everything she loves to hold on to the man she can't live without.

He dominated her with the kiss, leaving her in no doubt that he was in control and that he would take what he wanted - and that she had no alternative but to submit and please him.
When Stefan broke the kiss at last, he put his hand on Renee’s shoulders and she sank obediently to her knees.
“Position One,” Stefan hissed.
Renee parted her thighs quickly and clasped her hands behind her back. She straightened her back so that her breasts thrust out provocatively through the gap of her blouse, and then she opened her mouth as wide as she could.
Stefan had backed away. He picked up the riding crop from the bedroom floor and swished it once against the thigh of his jeans.
The smoldering flint in Stefan’s eyes had not diminished - had not lost any of its intensity. He prowled around Renee, inspecting her position and then came back to stand before her.
Carefully, he reached out with the riding crop, and set the soft leather pad under Renee’s chin, lifting her face until her eyes were locked on his.
“Don’t dare disappoint me,” he warned. “Remember your training.”
He unbuckled his belt slowly, and unfastened the front of his jeans. When he drew down the zip, the hardness of his erection sprang forward, vaulted and thick and urgent. If Renee’s mouth had not been wide open and waiting, she would have licked her lips.

Guest Post with author Vivien Sparx:

Writing about BDSM and dominant men who interact with submissive women is a challenge for any writer who doesn’t know their subject - or what makes
people tick. 
I have been very fortunate to be able to draw on the experiences of
several real life Masters, and many women who live their lives as actual
It is that research that makes my stories so realistic, so relatable, and so accurate.  My stories, such as Her Master’s Voice, and Her Master’s Kiss have earned high praise from authorities within the BDSM community for their
accuracy - it is acclaim that I am immensely proud of.

A healthy Master/submissive relationship is not very different from a regular relationship! That might surprise a lot of people, but the fact is that ALL strong, long-term relationships rely on the same few key elements to survive; Love and Trust. A BDSM relationship certainly relies on trust... but then do does a regular relationship! And the best BDSM relationships are loving, caring ones.... just like regular relationships! What really sets a BDSM relationship apart from the regular ones we might enjoy in our own lives is the distinction between the roles. Most relationships might be mutual in every way, whereas a submissive CHOOSES to submit to their Master. This submission might manifest itself in who makes the decisions between the couple, as well  as the nature of their sexual relationship.

As a writer of erotic romance, the beauty of the genre is not in creating lavish settings for my stories.  Nor is my fascination for erotic romance drawn from the opportunity to create handsome heroes and beautiful heroines.  My real love for the genre stems from the opportunity to take my readers on a journey and engage as many of their emotions as possible.  I believe writing erotic romance gives authors the most influence over how a reader feels as we engage them in our stories.  Writers of action books, or horror books certainly can create compelling situations, but with erotic romance we writers can immerse our readers in a multitude of emotions unprecedented in any other form of creative fiction.  I can frustrate readers, make them laugh, make them cry, delight them, intrigue them, inform them - erotic fiction is a total emotional experience, and it is gratifying to hear readers respond to stories with passion.  I believe readers want to be engaged and drawn into the pages of a story, and as a writer of erotic romance, we have the greatest opportunity because our stories are always relatable. They may be fictional worlds and fictional characters, but the themes of love and romance and erotica are so universal, and so personal to each of us that we all respond to stories in different ways.  But we all respond.
And that’s the true joy of writing erotic romance. It matters not so much how you respond as you read... it matters only that you do respond. If a writer can engage you and make you feel, then the story’s journey is one well worth taking.
