Welcome to Cheyenne, 1883

The West is no place for a woman.

Tell that to Cadence Delacouer. Cadence isn’t afraid of anything. She’s seen handsy drunks and barroom brawls, and handled it all fearlessly. The Red Onion is her greatest pride, and much to her stepfather’s chagrin, it’s her name on the deed. A woman has to be tough when she’s running the best saloon in town.

As a new nightmare comes to Cheyenne …

When a stranger brings carnage to her door, Cadence witnesses the brutal murders of her kin. Despite her innocence, the town’s suspicion quickly turns her way. As a mob cries for her blood, it’s a mysterious native man named Joseph who helps her escape.

The man who fires her deepest desires may be her only hope.

Joseph is unlike any man she’s known before; tall and lean, with a long black mane and a mischievous grin always peering from beneath the brim of his hat. His dark gaze is enough to steal the air from a room. Cadence soon discovers he knows a great deal about the monster that murdered her friends – the man he calls a Wendigo. As they track the murderer through the plains, Cadence is drawn to Joseph in a way she’s never felt before. Despite the danger of their quest, his touch soon proves irresistible.

Joseph will do anything to find this monster and help clear her name. But can he keep her alive long enough to prove her innocence? And will he still believe in her when he discovers what she’s done?

CATCH MY FALL – Available Now!

image

Thirty-something failed cartoonist, Faye Jensen, finally has her sh*t together — or does she? With a sudden layoff leaving her unemployed and evicted, she finds herself back in her home town and living with her topless-yoga loving mom. To top it all off, Faye discovers that her loyal boyfriend has pictures of another girl’s hoohah on his phone.

So much for having your sh*t together.

Faye decides to take it like a champ — by wallowing in self-loathing and revenge fantasies. Still, coming home has its perks.

Meet Stellan Odegard; a 6’4 MIT dropout and ninjitsu instructor who isn’t too keen on Faye’s pity party. As Faye’s oldest friend, Stellan drags her out of her funk with pizza, Billy Idol, and an intriguing project that forces Faye to pick up her sketchbook for the first time in a decade. But as the spirit of art heals Faye’s soul, she finds herself dreaming of her old buddy in a new and unexpected way. If only Stellan felt the same way about her.

CATCH MY FALL is a part laugh-out-loud, part heart-wrenching tale of eccentric billionaires, cartoon monkeys, and the art of Cyndi Lauper hairstyles. It reminds us to always follow what makes the heart sing and that it’s never too late to decide what you want to be when you grow up.

Due to adult themes, language, and steamy content, this title is intended for readers who are 18 years or older.

The Rising Voice Against 50 Shades

Disclaimer: I have never read 50 Shades of Grey. I know it was initially written as Twilight fan-fiction, I know that it contains scenes of extreme BDSM and tampon retrieval, and I have heard the writing isn’t entirely spectacular. All of that aside, here we go

There is a rising tide of people who have asked that the public boycott 50 Shades when it hits theaters, and no I’m not talking about the evangelists and religious right. I’m talking about everyone from feminists to active participants in the fetish community making a public call to stand against domestic violence by keeping their cash in their pockets. Rising disdain for the 50 Shades trilogy has begun to pique my interest into what might be causing such uproar. I read Anne Rice’s Beauty trilogy, I know how randy the notion of BDSM and feigned force in sexual interactions can be. Hell, I’ve written some pretty graphic shorts that involve the illusion of force and extreme dominance. I will admit openly that I couldn’t possibly be happy in a relationship with a man who isn’t capable of extreme dominance in the bedroom. Yet, 50 Shades doesn’t portray the subtle give and take of a Dominant male partner, taking as he pleases in the sack, all with express consent and to the enjoyment of the one being dominated.

boycott50shadesI’ve been told that the character of Christian Grey not only denies his female partner the right to consent, or to deny such, he doesn’t take any time to relieve the after effects of extreme dominance. Getting held down and annihilated is all well and good if the man doing the annihilating wants you to feel good, wants you to feel safe. That is a major part of the BDSM lifestyle – consent, consent, consent, and always a sense of safety. Christian Grey does not offer such to his partner. Or in other words, when she says no, he still forces her to have sex, during brutal sadism when she uses the safe word, he ignores her, and to top it all off, he doesn’t snuggle her back to the real world thereafter. (This is all hearsay)

Damn it, if you smack my ass too hard, you better rub it after!

I understand the allure of these stories, the notion of extreme dominance can be very arousing, but when that dominance comes with true sadism, there is no reward for the one on the receiving end of it. As a result, I do understand where their chagrin comes from, but I ask you – Are you going to go see 50 Shades? Do you agree with their beliefs that the story is a terrible portrayal of a healthy BDSM relationship? Or is the hype too much to resist?

While you’re thinking about your answer, watch this.
