Blurb: Terci’s success as a BDSM romance author is not mirrored in her relationships. Maybe what she wants is what she writes. And maybe Madame Eve can give her a night to find out if that’s true with the Domme of her dreams.
Author Mariana Martin, aka Mistress K, has received a 1Night Stand as a gift from her agent, but she fears a convention might not be the best place to play. She keeps her life as a Domme separate from her public career. What if her secret is exposed? But she can’t say no to Terci, even if Mariana can’t let the sexy blonde find out who she really is.
Excerpt: To my lovely companion for the evening,
I have one simple request…before I enter, don this blindfold and await my pleasure. And yours.
Terci read it again, aloud, but the words didn’t change. Mistress K, here, at the hotel. In Canada? Didn’t she live in the US somewhere? But she could live in Ottawa or Timbuktu for all the information she’d offered. The woman protected her privacy with vehemence, making it clear from their first conversation that if Terci pushed for personal information, she’d never speak with her again.
Terci had never been so reticent. She’d not only asked questions about the lifestyle, but, during some of their late-night, online chats, she’d shared her own fantasies in great detail. Arching her back, she recalled some of the things she’d told a woman she thought she’d never meet.
And now she’d meet her blindfolded, unable to see her!
A soft click filtered in from the living room, and she shot upright, hands gripping the tub’s rounded edges, foam dripping from her shoulders. Another click—the door closing?—and someone moved across the tile foyer. Then a hush. Her heart thudded. Mistress K?
5.0 out of 5 stars A fairy tale for authors March 19, 2015
By Anastasia Vitsky
Kate Richards has a talent for infuriating her readers. I say “talent” because this speaks to her ability to make readers care about her characters, become invested, and scowl when these beloved characters do not get the ending we want. In this case, the denouement is too quick and we are left wanting more.
As to the story itself, Richards brings her classic sense of humor (who else would open a romance with a discussion of re-attaching a severed toe?) and combines it with a rich interplay of fantasy, fairy tale, and dreams come true. Wouldn’t we all like to be Terci Angel, rising star in our profession and hand-picked for mentorship by our idol? Mariana, as the mysterious Mistress K, is a dream come true of a nurturing, humble, and selfless disciplinarian. Through her eyes, we see Terci as “the little author” who deserves the best, and we cheer (perhaps with some envy) when she receives it.
Two highlights of this story include the bathtub scene and the dream sequence. I can’t say more without spoiling the story, but they are moments to savor. Richards is past mistress (pun intended) at her craft, and she combines humor and soul with technical proficiency–to great effect. As to my favorite humorous moments, look for references to “crap on a cracker” and “Marco Polo.”
A special nod to Phil, the hapless would-be agent who steals every scene he’s in. Phil deserves a story of his own, with perhaps a Mistress K to guide him in his quest for professional achievement.
Terci in Chains is a treat to be savored by any fan of kink, F/F, and/or exquisite writing.
