It’s been a very busy month. Sometimes I bite off more than I can chew. It’s a bad habit of mine. I’m very ambitious, you see. Then BOOM, time has flown and I don’t have nearly enough done. Ah well. Things could be worse I suppose. I’m doing what I love, writing, and that’s all that really matters.
Summer is over, school is back in session and now it’s time to buckle down and get back to the business of actually writing. All in all, I didn’t do too badly this summer considering I put out a novel and a novella. My most recent release, The Art of Redemption just came out a mere few days ago – AND – ahead of schedule. That doesn’t happen too often for me and unfortunately, my last two books have come in past due. Another bad habit of mine. But let’s not get started on that…

Prequel to The Art of D/s series. This can be read before The Art of D/s Trilogy, but it does contain mild spoilers.
For Isabel, art was her saving grace and redemption from a life of abuse and cruel words. Having escaped her father’s iron fist and making her way in a strange city, she finds herself alone, going from empty relationship to unfulfilling relationship. Bored with conventional sex, creativity becomes the outlet for her secret desires. Introverted, self-critical yet spirited, she yearns for love, acceptance and control.
For Dylan, the answer to his control issues and sadistic fantasies was waiting for him within the walls of the Dark Asylum in the form of an acronym – BDSM. His redemption from his overwhelming guilt and sadness over the loss of his parents was discovering the escapism of art. Feeling undeserving of happiness, he delves into the art world and BDSM with voracious passion. As he concentrates on mastering his knowledge in all things art, he also sets about honing his Dominant skills while training new submissives, never wanting anything more than brief physical encounters.
This prequel explores Dylan and Isa’s pasts and the people who crossed their paths and became integral parts of their lives. This is the journey that led them to the fated Studio 210 gallery show where Dylan first caught glimpse of the erotic paintings that spoke to him, leading him to find the love of his life, his soul mate and his own little artist with a hidden dominant streak – Mistress Isabel. The very same night that forever changed Isabel’s future, leading her to the man who would capture her heart, Dominate her world, and ultimately give her complete control.

Isabel is a shy artist with an abusive past who has a very vivid fantasy life and unexplored unusual sexual tastes. When her very private and naughty-natured artwork is sold without her permission, she sets out to try and retrieve her precious paintings, unaware that the buyer has dark sexual tendencies.
Dylan Young is an eccentric businessman and art collector with very specific tastes in women and sex, and serious trust issues. When he comes upon a very erotic set of paintings, he purchases them and they ignite a want and need for the alternative lifestyle he was forced to give up.
When the two meet, Dylan immediately picks up on Isabel’s submissive nature and hatches a wicked plan to teach Isabel about his alternative lifestyle. He wants nothing more than to get his hands on more of her paintings and to dominate the submissive beauty.
Their affair is intensely physical and despite Dylan’s wanting only a sexual relationship with distinct boundaries, he can’t resist her spirited nature, her eagerness and lack of fear to learn BDSM, and most of all – her immense talent. But Isabel has a hidden dominant streak of her own that only Dylan brings out and as they’re drawn closer together, their unconventional relationship is threatened as they each struggle with their pasts and for control.
This is the tale of their love for each other, their unbreakable bond, and their trials in a world that offers nothing but obstacles. This is the saga of two dynamic characters whose personalities collide as they struggle with their dominant and submissive tendencies and seek control in all things as their pasts come back to haunt them in spectacular fashion.
