I’m really excited to kick off BDSM and D/s Month with my friend, Amy Valenti, and her re-released story, Dominance & Deception. Everyone give her a warm welcome and some nice shibari!


You will need:

– One hot male body, filled out in all the right places
– Smart-casual clothing
– A detective’s handcuffs, badge and gun
– An insightful, intelligent mind
– Senses of justice, ethics and loyalty
– A streak of fiendish imagination
– A taste for inflicting consensual pain
– Various toys, restraints and accessories

Step 1

Take hot male body (*ahem*) and dress it in smart-casual clothing. Just for now, ladies, don’t worry!

Step 2

Add the insightful, intelligent mind to the mix, and add the senses of justice, ethics and loyalty. This will result in a sexy guy, hot inside and out.

Step 3

Give your hot guy the detective’s handcuffs, badge and gun. This should create a sexy homicide detective. The temptation to reverse Step 1 may be strong at this stage, but the clothing should stay on now, for maximum effect later on.

Step 4

Give your homicide detective a streak of fiendish imagination, creating a sexy and devious, yet loyal homicide detective, and again resist the temptation to reverse Step 1. I promise you, it will be worth it!

Step 5
Add the taste for inflicting pain to create your sexy Dom. Important: ensure step two is carried out to the fullest before going anywhere near Step 5, or you’ll end up with an armed, sexy, corrupt detective who wants to murder you. This isn’t a great thing to have in your life.

Step 6

Garnish with various toys, restraints and accessories of your choice. For example, you may wish to give him some rope, a blindfold, a riding crop or a flogger. I would recommend a menthol hand lotion that feels pretty good when applied to more intimate areas – combine this with the riding crop and the handcuffs from Step 3, and you’ll have created a tasty scene from Dominance and Deception (see below).

Step 7

You may now reverse Step 1 – or, more accurately, let him order you to your knees and play with you a little before he decides it’s time to take off the clothing. Have fun! ;)


“Now I know your fetishes, let’s talk about mine. We’ll explore them over time…but let’s start with this one.”

He took a small tube of something out of his pocket, uncapping it and holding it close enough to my nose that I could smell it.

“Sir…” He hadn’t even used it yet, but my imagination offered up enough predictions to set me squirming. I didn’t know whether I was asking him for it, or pleading for him not to go there.

Pierce set the tube down on the bed, then leaned over to leave a trail of teasing kisses over my abdomen, gradually working his way south.

Supporting himself on one elbow, he lay across the bed, slowly caressing my clit with his tongue.

I bit back a moan of encouragement, but wow—the man had some serious technique. My spread legs trembled, threatening to give out and leave me sitting on my heels—which would not make Pierce happy.

He drew back, sitting up and substituting his fingers for his tongue, watching me writhe and sigh. Then he squeezed a little of the mentholated hand moisturiser onto one fingertip, and I closed my eyes, waiting for the inevitable.

He rubbed it into my skin, starting at the outer edges and moving gradually inwards. For a moment, I didn’t feel anything, then a cool tingle began to creep across the area.

“Please,” I begged, just as he coated my clit with moisturiser. “Sir—

He sat back with a tiny smile…and the menthol kicked in, a cold, mild burn tha shocked the breath from my lungs and sent a wave of intense want through me.

“You have permission to come, little tease. If you can.”

As long as my hands were tied, I didn’t have a chance. I gave a quick tug at my bonds, just in case, but it was wishful thinking. And I got the feeling he wouldn’t let me close my legs enough to generate any kind of friction…

“I need your help, Sir.”

Pierce laughed softly. “I know that.”

While I groaned with frustrated resignation, tingling and trembling and completely helpless, he shrugged out of his shirt and returned to my toy chest. Ignoring me.



Amy Valenti attained ‘crazy cat lady’ status at four years old, but took a little longer to get to the ‘published author’ stage, which was her other goal in life. Now thirty, she tries to minimise the number of cats she puts into her erotic romance stories, but more than one has slipped into a character’s home while her back’s been turned. After all, the ultimate test of a man’s worth is what his new partner’s pets think of him…

Cats aside, Amy enjoys writing about intelligent female characters who know themselves and their desires. She’s been fascinated by sex, relationship and power-play dynamics for many years, and experiments with different sub-genres under the overarching category of BDSM, concentrating on domination and submission romance in particular.
