Will Tying Them Up Tie Me Down?

Cathryn CadeThanks, Delilah for hosting me! Not every day I get to hang out with a Penthouse Pet, lol.

I’ve noticed a very interesting bent in my romance heroes lately. The sci fi pirates and the contemporary alpha males in the 2 new series I’m writing. They, um, wanna tie women up.

Where the heck did that come from? I mean, I’ve been accused of writing BDsm in my Orion Series. Don’t really think that’s on the mark.

Okay, so Captain Steve Craig of Her Commander does use soft restraints on his spunky half-Serpentian guard Tessa. And maybe he captures her in the dark … once. But it’s all in good, sexy fun.

Oh, and maybe Commander Daron Navos in Deep Indigo does use mind-control on his intern, Nelah Cobalt, but she gets it. Kinda takes come hither to a whole new level.

Well, and so what if Tryon Jag in Tyger, Tyger, Burning Bryght demands that Calla be his submissive for the duration of his mating shift?

Oh, wait. I see where this is going now. Huh. I’ve been writing mild BDsm and didn’t realize it. (Note: Yes, I use caps on the BD and lower case on the sm ‘cause I consider the first part sexy and the second part not for me)

Of course my Hawaiian Heroes contemporary paranormal romance series is hot vanilla. And I’m sure I’ll do more romance without kink. After all, I don’t want to tie myself to just one sub-genre of romance.

But, in 2013, readers, hang on to your panties.

Orion RisingIn The LodeStar Series, we’re taking a fast space ship to the newly settled planet of Frontiera, with space magnate Logan Stark and his two brothers. The three grew up rough, and now these alphas have one approach to life and sex—they’re in charge. Hmm, their feisty females may have something to say about that. Hope it’s ‘Yes!’

In Club 3, three alpha weightlifters from Portland Oregon who own a gym and fitness center decide that maybe, given their sexual need to dominate, they should open another kind of club. The kind that’s private and opens up when the sun goes down. Mm-hmm, that kind.

I’ll be self-pubbing LodeStar starting in winter 2013. Club 3 will debut with a digital first publisher. If you’d like to know when they come out, sign up for my Newsletter.  It’s easy, and will show up in your email box ONLY when I have a new book out.

    Funny isn’t it? When you start exploring your fantasies and putting them on paper…trends emerge! I was shocked to discover I really enjoy writing Dominant, Alpha Heroes as well.

    Readers should check that one out.

    Cathryn- you make this sound like a bad thing… You must have noticed how popular “shades of gray” became. Everyone acts like they discovered the idea for the first time last year, when most of us have been reading some version of MUCH better written stories for years. I esp like when there is a little something extra in the story- scifi or paranormal (shifters are my fav), etc.
    Keep up the good work, and good luck with your upcoming release(s)!

    P.S. I signed up for your newsletter. Thanks for the link 😀

    Thanks for the gentle reminder to toss that guilt and step out.

    Like you, I’m thrilled that SofG has so very many women talking about and reading erotic romance–and may 2013 bring us more top quality stories.

    Thanks for signing up to stay current! Now I need to get back to work on that new hot, hot story!
