Carla Campbell, a successful, dynamic real estate attorney employed by a national firm headquartered in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania has always lived a "vanilla" life. Her boyfriend, Dr. Michael Cohen, is a soft spoken, mild-mannered therapist, who just so happens to be a strikingly handsome Dominant man. Together, these opposite personalities are in full swing trying to make their new relationship work.
In this second installment of The Author, Michael and Carla recently returned from Richard and Dana McBride’s wedding in Hawaii and quickly moved in together. Carla’s snappy comebacks and sassy attitude certainly pushed all of Michael’s buttons. He loved that she was a strong, intelligent, self-sufficient woman, but worried that her enthusiasm for a DD relationship with him might only be a passing phase. She adored his calm authority, and the passionate gleam in those dark brown eyes turned her on, but wondered what fueled his intense desires.
After a long day of supervising staff at the office, his independent girlfriend was expected to hand over control to him - which was easier said than done. Was Carla’s disobedience a cry for dominance or a way of controlling those delicious bare-bottom spankings she was receiving on a regular basis?
Two erotic romance authors - for the price of one!
Dana Cooper is an attractive woman in her early thirties who pays the bills by writing local newspaper articles during the day. However, as the sun set, she hovered over a laptop writing steamy erotic spanking novels, that included domestic discipline and age-play. As a "closet spanko", she decided it was safer to keep her fetishes hidden away in her imagination, bringing them to life only in the fiction that she wrote; until her best friend, Carla, asked her to meet an old friend who was a fan of her novels.
Richard McBride had been fantasizing about Dana for years. Of course, he had no idea that she didn't practice the lifestyles she wrote about. Dana dreamed about the love of a strong man like Richard, but quickly found out that actually being bare-bottomed over a man's knee was very different than describing it in a novel. Richard not only wanted a DD relationship with Dana, but also hoped there was a little girl inside her, wanting to come out. The idea of AP always appealed to Dana, but she never thought it was safe to reveal that part of herself to anyone. Could Richard be her lover and her daddy - or was that only in a "happy-ever-after" ending she wrote for Kindle readers?
