Today we have a sexy little treat. Author Lynda Aicher is stopping by to talk about “The Rise of the Dominant Male” as part of her Bonds of Trust tour. But Lynda’s not just stopping by with a fun post. She’s also giving readers a sexy teaser from the book and a fabulously naughty giveaway! BONDS OF TRUST recently released via Carina Press.
After ending her passionless marriage, Cali Reynolds is eager to live out her forbidden fantasies. Her first step is attending new members’ night at The Den, the most exclusive sex club in town. Perhaps here she can find a man who understands her desire to be dominated…
At first, Jake McCallister thinks Cali has come to his club for the wrong reasons. But when he discovers she is seeking fulfillment after years of denial, he’s intrigued—and takes it upon himself to initiate her into the pleasures she’s been missing.
Her first encounter with Jake is everything Cali has always craved, and more; she’s not prepared for the feelings he inspires in her. And Jake is just as surprised by his overwhelming attraction to Cali. As their play intensifies, so does their bond. Now, Jake doesn’t want anyone but Cali—but is he ready to officially claim her? And will she submit to being his forever?
Bonds of Trust Blog Tour – The Rise of the Dominant Male
In the last year the media has gone crazy over dominant men in romance books. With the success of one BDSM series, the world was exposed to the long-existing erotic romance genera. And even better, they could talk about it openly. Oh my!
The flashflood of interest made it seem like the dominant male was some newly created enigma that had women everywhere swooning. Who was that masked man you ask? Why, he’s your hunky neighbor downstairs, or that co-worker in the next department, or maybe he’s the guy at the gym every morning. But maybe, just maybe, could he be your spouse? Oh let the fantasies begin.
But let’s be real, the dominant male has been around forever. Also known as the Alpha male, he’s the guy who takes charge, saves the day, and sweeps you off your feet all before breakfast. The only thing new is someone dressed him in leather and gave him some handcuffs and a flogger. Now he’s dark and mysterious too. Even better.
Alpha males are the stronghold standard of the romance book and there’s a reason why romance is the number one selling genera. It’s because woman love the image and idea of a big strong man bending for the woman he loves. It’s always the love story we’re suckers for and the bigger, stronger, more Alpha they are, the bigger they fall. All for us.
And despite the rise of women rights and female power, there is still a part of most women who like to be cared for. Because really, who wants to do it all? The whole bring home the bacon, fry it up in a pan and never let you forget you’re a man crap died in the eighties for a reason. A woman can be strong, confident and successful and still like to be nurtured, loved and cherished.
Go ahead and give the man a whip, a dungeon full of play toys and call him a Dom, he’s still an Alpha male. It’s still the fantasy of finding that one man who can read our minds, give us everything we want without having to ask, make us come for hours and multiple times a day then charge into the night to stop the serial stalker who’s after us.
Aaah romance novels. Where would we be without them?
Cali stood before him, illuminated by the light strategically placed around the edges of the room. Her hands were clasped tightly in front of her, her chin lifted, shoulders back, but her eyes refused to meet his despite his instructions.
He grabbed the back of her hair and gave a soft, but firm tug. Her head jerked and her gaze flew up to meet his.
“Look at me and answer my question. What do you want?”
Her eyes widened, the green depths deepening as her pupils dilated more.
“Answer, or we’re done.”
After a brief, tense pause, she spoke. “I told you, I don’t honestly know.” Her cheeks flushed. “I want a man to make me come. No vibrators. No toys. I want…” Her gaze darted away from his, but with a tug on her hair it returned. “I want a man’s touch. His control. His confidence in owning my body and giving me everything I want. I want sex that is also about me…not just him.”
A good start. He could give her that. Easily. But he sensed there was more. “And…” He let the question trail off.
She swallowed, her lips working as she gathered her courage. “I don’t know,” she admitted, the honesty projected in both her voice and eyes. “My sexual experience is so embarrassingly limited that I don’t honestly know what I want outside of what I just told you. I don’t know what I like or don’t like because anything outside of vanilla sex has never been given to me.” She sucked in a breath of air like she was shocked at the admission.
Jake clenched his free hand behind his back, the hidden action his only break in the calm, controlled facade he displayed. The desire to do exactly as she asked was so overwhelming it took everything in him to hold himself still.
