Submitting To The Devil Dom Now Available For Pre-Order! #sirenauthor

The latest in The Martinis and Chocolate Book Club series is now available for pre-order!

Tori Cordell’s dating the sexy cop who moved in next door. She’s dated some losers in the past, but Ian Taggert is a winner. When she finds out he’s known as the Devil Dom, she’s surprised and a little angry. He better have a damn good reason for his lie of omission.

Ian Taggert has waited a long time to find a woman like Tori. She’s smart and beautiful, but clearly a vanilla-type woman. If it means holding on to her, he’s willing to leave his Dominant side in the past and start a new life.

Ian’s floored when Tori wants him just the way he is, dominance and all. They fall more deeply in love as she learns the heaven to be found in submitting to her Devil Dom. But heaven can quickly turn to hell. Tori is attacked, and Ian will need to solve the toughest case of his career if he wants to keep her safe.


Just what is light bondage anyway?

I am always a little tickled when reading a description of an erotic romance and it includes the words “light BDSM” or “light bondage”.  What does that mean exactly?  Who decides what light bondage is?  Is there some criteria somewhere that I should be aware of?  If they use handcuffs or silk scarves is that light bondage but if the chains come out does it become heavy bondage?  Come to think of it, I have never seen a description that said “heavy bondage” so perhaps heavy bondage doesn’t exist.  Maybe there is only bondage and light bondage.  If someone is restrained more than once in the book does it not pass as light bondage anymore?  Would the criteria look like this?

Two hands, but no legs – light bondage

Two hands, two legs – bondage

Two hands, two legs, and a blindfold – heavy bondage

Two hands, two legs, and nipple clamps – heavy bondage

Two hands, nipple clamps, and a blindfold – bondage

Two hands, nipple clamps, and a gag – bondage

Two hands and a spanking – bondage

Two hands, nipple clamps, and a spanking – heavy bondage

I’m guessing a leg spreader or a clit clip would blow the ratings out of the water.  Any sort of wax play would automatically take them out of the realm of light bondage as would kneeling before your master and paying an oral tribute.  Don’t even get me started on any anal play…

Any thoughts?
