Kayelle Allen's New Release - Keeper of My Pleasure

I'm doing a bit of a shout out for Kayelle Allen today. She's written that rare beastie, a M/F BDSM story…with a male sub. Keeper of My Pleasure is out today. 

Why did I write a male submission story? It's a genre I enjoy reading but can rarely find. I also write male/male romance, which I originally began writing for the same reason. Now, it's available everywhere. The hero in Keeper of My Pleasure, Koo Ayakura, is no weakling. He plays sports. He's a college graduate. He can handle anything his mistress throws his way, with grace and strength. There is nothing weak about a submissive partner. The sub must be able to trust the dominant, and that is not an easy thing to do. A good D/s relationship might be one of the hardest types to maintain. It requires constant adjustment, and the willingness to change. There must be trust between the partners, and that only comes after proving worth, because trust without reason is little more than hope. 

Keeper of My Pleasure
By Kayelle Allen
Rai trusts Koo to submit. To keep him, she must trust her heart.
A Romantica® BDSM erotic romance from Ellora's Cave
This book is in the Taboo line -- one of the Ellora's Cave Quickies

A recent college graduate, Koo hires Rai as his attorney after thieves total his car and then dare to sue him. She wins, and takes him out to celebrate. Dinner leads to the hottest sex in his life, and a long-term relationship as her submissive. He adores the way she makes him feel, and the way she makes him burn. He longs to show her he has more to offer. He has a heart, and it's hers, if only she'll let him give it.
A successful attorney in her late thirties, Rai has a penchant for handsome young men with long hair. Koo, her newest client, becomes more than her usual boy toy. He likes being tied up and whipped, and he yields the way she'd always dreamed. But he has a future ahead of him, and she's a jaded lawyer. He wants sex, not love. Right? He wouldn't stay with her forever. She trusts him to submit. To keep Koo, Rai is going to have trust her heart.

You Couldn't Make This Stuff Up - Pole Dancing in the Library

Pole Dancing: It's Not Just for Strip Clubs Anymore

In an earlier post I confessed my love for weird news stories, remember? Here's one that tickled my fancy. Seems some libraries are willing to think outside the box in order to attract new patrons.

In January of this year a library in Scotland hosted pole dancing classes as part of their Love Your Library Day.

Not this kind of pole dancing.

All my local library offers is free internet. Just imagine old Mrs. McTavish's surprise when she popped in to return her Maeve Binchy paperback.

Honestly, you couldn't make this stuff up. As always, I've attached a link to the original story.

I read it in a newspaper so it must be true.
