Day 21: Favorite BDSM related book (fiction or non-fiction)
So first off, I’m going to shamelessly promote the e-book site I frequent the most : jasminejade.com (formerly Ellora’s Cave). They publish full-length novels that are BDSM-themed and romantic in nature, and really helped spawn my kinky interest.
As a second disclaimer – there is no way in hell I could pick just one favorite BDSM book. No way, no how. Here’s a sampling of some of my favorites.
I love Cherise Sinclair. Her Shadowlands series – all 6 of them – are incredible, with well developed characters and plotlines as well as depth into D/s and sexy kinky fun times. There’s also mystery and intrique, and who dislikes that?
Training to Pleasure by Julian Masters was one of the first kinky books I read, and it was a great introduction to some serious power play. I actually was in touch with the author for a while, and I really credit him for incorporating some safety measures into the book. It was extreme at times, but there was a romantic element that softened the power exchange, which appealed to me.
Zane’s Way and Maverick’s Black Cat by Maggie Casper are two other favorite books. I love the story-lines in these books, primarily because they address how to come out as kinky to a partner. They sort of play up awkward situations and turn them into happy endings, which fits my life well.
