Master's New Kitten by Dominique Rothford (#maledom #erotica #petplay)

I am currently on vacation for a week as I recover from surgery (no, not that surgery - LOL), but I have scheduled a series of reviews and guest posts to keep you reading.

Aside from an awkward opening (which I will get to in a second), Master's New Kitten was an absolutely sumptuous read, full of seductive sensuality. Dominique Rothford has a wonderful writing style, a love for her characters, and a flair for detail that make the story come alive. It can be hard to create a connection between lovers, especially when one of them is largely limited to kitten-like meows, but she makes us believe in their passion.

It all begins when a bored, lonely Katherine reluctantly slips into her old sexy cat costume. Just as she is heading to her sisters for a Halloween party, though, she gets a call for a job interview . . . and forgets all about the costume. The timing seems a bit odd, and the mental lapse is hard to fathom, but it plays out so well, it is easily forgivable. She does not get the job, but she does get a date - and Alex insists she keep the costume on.

I had so much fun with this story! Katherine is a great character, a young woman looking for a spark of passion and adventure. If she has a kinky bone in her body, she has ever explored it, but she is curious about Alex and his fetishes. As for Alex, he initially seems like your typical alpha millionaire, but he is caring and compassionate, a deliberate lover and a disciplined pet owner. Their exploration of dominance and submission, with an emphasis on pet play rather than traditional bondage, is truly a joy to behold. Katherine has her reservations, but Alex provides her with safewords, and she quickly loses herself in the fantasy.

I know, you are probably wondering how there can possibly be even a hint of romance between a rich Master and the submissive kitten he just met, but Rothford develops the characters as well as she does the scene, completely delighting the reader, and making me wish for a pair of cat ears of my own.
Dominique has been practicing BDSM for the better part of ten years. In her personal life, she's a switch, with experience both topping and bottoming, being the mistress and the pet. She is active in her local BDSM community, and is a devout feminist despite subbing for a male partner.

I Forcibly Feminized My Boss… by Hellen N. Ellendale (#femdom #feminization #humor)

I am currently on vacation for a week as I recover from surgery (no, not that surgery - LOL), but I have scheduled a series of reviews and guest posts to keep you reading.

Every so often an author will poke a little fun at the tropes and clichés of forced feminization, but rarely do you come across a story that is so completely subversive. I Forcibly Feminized My Boss… And He Was Surprisingly Casual About the Whole Thing is just as silly as you might expect, and far more clever.

Zoe S. Figueroa, writing here as Hellen N. Ellendale, has crafted what may very well be the best parody of the genre I have ever read. It starts like you might expect, with a young woman looking to blackmail her sexist, chauvinistic boss, but Ricky's reaction is . . . well, completely unexpected. He seems far too amused by the conversation, is refreshingly candid about his embezzlement, and seems rather delighted to go along with whatever she has in mind.

Poor Lily tries her hardest to embarrass and humiliate him, and so desperately looks forward to punishing him for his disobedience, but it never quite works out that way. I giggled and smirked throughout this, enjoying Lily's impotent rage almost as much as Ricky's indulgent experimentation. There is more than one occasion where it seemed like she has finally won out, only to have his reaction be even more absurd than the last one.

I so wish I could give you examples, but you really need to enjoy it for yourself. All I will say is that the restaurant scene at the end is fun, and their return home to a surprise guest is even better, but their final conversation about why she did it all is just about perfect.

Zoe S. Figueroa is an author of erotic stories dealing mostly with themes of gender transformation. If you like stories of men changing into women and women changing into men you'll likely enjoy her stories.

More Wolf Than Woman by Savannah Reed (#femdom #erotica)

When Savannah Reed first pitched More Wolf Than Woman to me, she described it as story that shifts the alpha into the female. Not a traditional BDSM femdom story, but an erotic romance where the woman is the seducer. I was curious, so I agreed to give it a read.

I must say, this is one of the more unique stories I have read in a while. There is a definite role-reversal here in terms of how the genre is usually explored. Raven is clearly a take-charge kind of woman, someone who knows what she wants and expects other people to give it to her. She is almost regal in her attitude, treating Issac's bed like her throne, and expecting his compliance.

There is no obvious element of BDSM or submissive roleplay here, just that reversal of roles, with Raven as the seductress, taking her pleasure from Issac. He is an interesting character, because while he is not explicitly submissive, he does follow her lead, surrendering all control over the encounter to her.

A short story that is comprised of a single scene, More Wolf Than Woman is an exciting tease of what could be a fantastic new story.

Inspired by her Twitter followers messages, Savannah began to write short stories about men she had in her life and women who were portions of herself or rare to discover within erotic romances. She continues to take a unique route while writing erotic romance, writing characters who are equally concerned about their pleasure and their partners pleasure, using protection and discussing needs and dislikes. Savannah hopes to encourage, deep connections, respect, passion and consent.


The Lonely Merman by Kay Berrisford (#gay #romance #merman #gothic)

Okay, so I knew from the blurb that I was going to love The Lonely Merman. I mean, a magical ruin, an enchanted pool, and a flamboyant merman with tentacles? Yes, please! What I did not know, however, was how deeply I would fall in love with Lyle, or how deeply I would get lost in the world Kay Berrisford created.

The setting alone is worth the price of admission, a secluded little spot, deep inside the forest, that has remained magically hidden from view for over a century. There is a single tower, seemingly torn from a castle and dropped into the trees, topped by exquisite stone dragons. A little further away there is an even lovelier pond, crystal clear, and prone to unusual aquatic frenzies. Haunting them both is a man by the name of Lyle, a Gothic beauty who is as enchanting as he is enigmatic.

The romance between Lyle and Ben is quite lovely, a slow-burning passion that brings two worlds together. Just as they have found one another, though, the cruel hand of progress threatens to tear them apart, with Lyle's curse promising a sad end to his cursed exile. This is a magical tale, with all the power and excitement of a fairy tale, driven by a love that is sweet, and kind, and just plain delightful. Lyle's story is a sad one, but that mythology is a big part of what makes the story so perfect.

Fittingly, The Lonely Merman is a fairy tale romance full of erotic promise, but with the sex left largely off the page. It is a story that is full of emotion, with a happily-ever-after that will leave you smiling for the rest of the day. Just an altogether lovely read.

Kay Berrisford recently started writing again after a two-and-a-half year hiatus. She writes for herself these days. aiming to fulfil her own fantasies once more, and remembering just how much fun writing could be. What to expect from my her writing?  Her favourite stories contain a ton of humour, fun and fantasy (dragons, fairies, and mermen, anyone?) equally balanced with a strong dose of angst and hurt/comfort, a heavy wad of romance, and a sprinkling of light heat, sex-wise.  So expect this unholy concoction in her 2017 books.

Mindi Harris’s Ultimate All New Forced Feminization Bundle (#feminization #femdom #humiliation)

Although the stories end a little abruptly, and could definitely benefit from some additional detail, Mindi Harris’s Ultimate All New Forced Feminization Bundle is a lovely sample of her work. Any one of the five could (and, I would argue, should) be expanded into novellas or given sequels, and wanting more is never a bad thing.

Gimmie an A! takes so many adolescent nightmares, and spins them into such an extreme fantasy, that it is almost overwhelming. Here you have an arrogant, conceited college boy, looking to skate by on the strength of his charm, who runs into a professor with a fetish for forced feminization and a classroom full of ex-girlfriends who are only too happy to help. It is an intense, almost brutal story, full of erotic humiliation.

Friend-Zone Feminization is a story told in the first person, directed at the reader as if they were the feminized boyfriend. It is more hints, suggestions, and teasing references than detailed acts of feminization, but it works exceptionally well.

Tricked and Trapped by His Twin is a fun tease, but really more of a scene than a story. There is definite potential there, and a backstory that could be a story all on its own, but to end without actually seeing the feminized brother deal with a night waiting tables as the Breastaurant seems a crime.

The best, most complete story in the collection, is The Cheerleader's Revenge. Here we have a new family coming together, with a father of a teenage son on one time and a mother of two teenage daughters on the other. Ricky is a rude, difficult, angry brat, but when his dad leaves for business, his step-mother takes advantage of that anger to challenge him, tricking him into a deal that promises a semester full of lace and frills.

A Rare Vintage and Window Shopping are a connected pair of stories, with a pair of girls who enjoy encouraging the feminization of young men who are drawn to a vintage clothing shop. The first story is sweet, ending on a note of erotic promise, but the second is cruel, ending with a sissy who gets precisely what he asked for, whether he likes it or not.

Mindi Harris writes stories about ordinary women pushed beyond the breaking point by obnoxious (or worse) men. Her stories focus on reasonable situations, compelling motivations, and plausible circumstances. In other words: no magic, science fiction, or other things that couldn't really happen. She tries to maintain high quality levels: continuity of characterization, spelling, grammar, and richness of narrative.

Saving Grace by Amanda Hawkins (#trans #scifi)

If you have never stopped by Amanda's Reading Room, it really is a lovely place to spend some time. Amanda Hawkins has a different take on image captions, one that is heavy on the text/story, using the image to provide some context (not to tell the story). She also writes some longer fiction, all of which is available for free on the site.

Saving Grace is one of those stories, and it makes for a fantastic read. It starts off a bit silly, with some definite B-movie clichés being tossed around, and some amusing caricatures of government officials. Aliens have landed, humanity has already taken heavy casualties, and all we know about them is really just a desperate theory. Without saying too much, it appears crossdressers may just be the key to the world's salvation.

The story gets really interesting in that middle portion, as crossdressers across the area are exposed, recruited, and provided with a blank cheque for feminization. High end department stores, hair salons, nail salons, and more are put at their sole disposal, with the US government picking up the tab. This allows for a lot of character building as we get to know the girls, along with a little gender sensitivity training for the soldiers.

There is a major turning point for the story that I will not spoil, but suffice to say it contains more than a few shocking surprises. The story actually gets rather dark going into the final arc but, as with all good science fiction, it also gets rather thoughful as well. There is a lot of talk about gender, gender identity, and gender expression, with the girls turning a mirror on the alien's own violent prejudices. Amanda asks some interesting questions, and approaches the issue from a fresh perspective.

There is a cute epilogue to Saving Grace as well, but to say anything about that would be to spoil the whole story. It is a wonderful read, and you can pop over and do so for free . . . so get going already!

Amanda's work is transgender erotica, not porn. The pictures found on her blog are not pornographic; most involve no nudity at all and the few that do are tasteful, involving only bare female breasts. Some stories do involve sex, but it is not explicit. Needless to say, underage persons are not involved in any mature situation. Her work is not restricted to any of the themes commonly found in transgender fiction. It ranges from straightforward cross-dressing to any and all varieties of magical and SciFi tropes. The files are tagged with keywords to provide an idea of what each story is about.

Tales of Talithia by Ash Gray (#fantasy #trans #lesbian)

Tales of Talithia is a collection of "erotic tales for genre nerds of various sexualities.Ash Gray has put together a series of interconnected stories, all set within the same world, a place where there are no sad endings.

Divide and Conquer was a fantastic tale of lesbian temples, gay bars, and a bisexual pair of biracial lovers. It is a story where the worlds of elves and humans meet. It is the dialogue that makes this one so much fun, the verbal sparring between the handsome Elbryn and beautiful Holonie, with the details of the world and its history creating something bigger than their love.

If the first story was fun and bold, Farther Shores was sweet and magical. In a mix up of the usual fairy tale tropes, a young woman is saved from suicide by a handsome siren, only to fall in love and find something meaningful that her father and sisters could never dream of understanding.

Silently Bound was one of my favorite of the collection, with it's mythological celebration of 'three spirit' souls. It is a lovely story of sexual discovery, of erotic happiness, and of something more . . . something beyond the mortal realm . . . where being transgender is quite literally a gift of the gods.

The darkest and most violent story in the collection is, rather surprisingly, a little tale called Unicorn Blood. It is a tale of magic and mythology that expand upon the world-building introduced in the first three stories. It has a mythological flavor of it own, like something out of the Greek myths, with a powerful love between women of two race that may just be the thing that give the world hope.

The only story in the collection that didn't quite work for me was The Wishing Well. It lacked the magic and mystery of the other stories, being more erotic than romantic, and I felt like there was a missed opportunity for a different happily-ever-after. A decent story, but just not quite up to the standards of the others.

Ash Gray is a dragon with minuscule spectacles perched on her nose, living in a wonderfully dank, musty cave far away in an alternate universe. She types her stories with gigantic claws on a ridiculously small typewriter before sending them through a membrane and into your dimension for your enjoyment.

Freebie Fetish Friday - Putting the TG in TGIF!

Well, if it's Friday, then it must be time to bend our way into the weekend with Freebie Fetish Friday.

Every Friday I search through the weekend's free titles on Amazon, looking for those that might be of interest to readers, fans, and lovers of bending gender and sexuality. Even if you don't have a Kindle, you can still download the titles through one of Amazon's free reading applications, and covert it (if need be) with Calibre. I can tell you I do most of my reading on my tablet, using Kindle for PC, and it works beautifully.

Please do be sure to check the price before downloading anything, though, as most freebies are limited time offers, and some are specific to certain regions.

TG Tales #4 by Crystal Veeyant (#sissy #shemale #femdom)

When TG Tales #3 hit the shelves back in June, it was a welcome surprise from one of my favorite authors of shemale and sissy fetish erotica. Crystal Veeyant had been quiet for while, even talking at one point about pulling her stories from circulation, so new material was a joyous delight . . . which makes the publication of TG Tales #4 absolutely orgasmic.

Bad Girl in Charge is an example of what Crystal does best, a sexy tale that plays with so many taboos it is almost impossible to keep up. George and Vicki are a mismatched couple, an oversexed brute and a docile housewife. When he insists they adopt a homeless transsexual teen, she knows he has an ulterior motive, but what neither of them know is that the young woman (who lied about her age) has ulterior motives of her own. Table are turned, live are changed, and messes are made.

Deep Space Sissy, a sequel to Shemale Planet (one of my favorites), catches up with the highly feminized and oversexed Marika. This is a wild and sexy tale, full of imagination, with multiple sessions of over-the-top group sex between a sissy femmer and her shemale superiors. What elevates the story is the return to Earth and the revelations regarding humanity's origins . . . and our matriarchal future.

His Wife's Dirty Girl is a fun story that seems cruel, but which is really rather sexy and sweet. Sandy and Dan are a couple whose young marriage is already in trouble. When she catches him watching shemale porn, she seizes the moment and catapults them both into a new life of forced feminization, bisexuality, and female domination. Things get wildly out of control very quickly, but it all leads to a happily-ever-after for everyone involved.

If you love watching oversexed sissies being dominated by men, women, and shemales, TG Tales #4 is a wonderful one-handed read.

Crystal Veeyant is the pen name of a pro journalist and author. She loves crossdressers and transsexuals, and delights in casting them in explicit, erotic stories. Her books feature sissies and shemales in dramatic, funny and even heartwarming tales--real literature but with a zesty pornographic bent.

Transported: Transgender BDSM Erotica by Shaun Putaine (#trans #bdsm #erotica)

If the cover to Transported: Transgender BDSM Erotica seems a little dark, a little sinister . . . well, it is. Having previously enjoyed Shaun Putaine at his most thoughtful and romantic, I was surprised by how dirty he gets here.

The first story, Legs, opens quietly, but does not take long to turn dirty. It is a story of a long-term relationship between a transsexual Dominatrix and the only crossdressing submissive to wear her collar full-time. It somehow manages to be sweet and tender, even as it explores pain, degradation, and abuse. The key to it all is the dichotomy of BDSM, with the pain accentuating the pleasure, something I have never seen illustrated quite so well as with the spiked, weighted parachute preparing Michael for his ultimate penetration.

The Pick Up is a story that is full of surprises, one where appearances can be deceptive. When Cal picks up Sahara at the bar, we have a certain expectation of her, but there are other secrets to be revealed. This was a hot, passionate story, with the biggest (and sweetest) reveal saved for the very end.

The third story, Suite Reunion, is one I have enjoyed before, but this kinky tale of crossdressing, cuckoldry, and female domination was just as much fun the second time around. It is a wonderfully sensual tale, with a passionate focus on the reunion between husband and wife, even as the presence of their Master looms over the situation. There is no such thing as a perfect marriage, but this comes damned close.

Putaine saves the best for last, however, with Custom Maid, a story I definitely want more of. Danni is a sweet, submissive transsexual girl who arrives at a sumptuous mansion to begin her employment. We really only get to meet the staff here, all of whom are sexual submissives of the Master, the Mistress, and her sister, but it is clear there is a much larger story to be enjoyed. It is a very sensual story, complete with both kinky punishments and erotic sexuality, but I think what I loved most was the care, the tenderness, and the respect shown for Danni's gender.

If you are new to the worlds of Shaun Putaine, then Transported: Transgender BDSM Erotica is a great place to begin. As an added bonus, if you choose to buy it directly from Smashwords, the coupon code KA65C will get you 75% between now and Sept 10th, so you really have no excuse not to get reading!

Shaun Putaine is a gender fluid author with a kinky bent. Shaun enjoys taking the reader outside the boundaries that most consider ‘normal’. From bending gender to exploring alternative lifestyles and sexuality Shaun draws from real life experiences when writing erotica. Shaun loves to have, and share, new and interesting experiences both in real life and through writing.

How I Feminised my Husband by Lady Alexa (#femdom #FLR #feminisation)

Even though it often seems as if there is a gaping chasm between fantasy and reality, the truth is that sometimes the line is finer than others might imagine. How I Feminised my Husband is the real-life story of how one woman slowly, carefully, and lovingly led her husband across that line.

Lady Alexa is the real deal, a dominant woman in a female-led relationship, with a forcibly feminised husband. She is, in fact, the very pinnacle of the fantasy, but such was not always the case. As her story reminds us, real-life Dommes and submissives are not born, fully-formed, and knowing exactly what they want, but made patiently over time, through plenty of trial-and-error.

Some readers may be surprised to read how nervous and tentative Lady Alexa was in the early days, and how difficult she found it to talk to her husband about her fantasies, but that is how life works. No matter how naturally dominant someone might be, fear of rejection and worries about the future of an established relationship are something we all cope with. It is a nice fantasy to think that a Domme can simply snap her fingers and have life bend itself to her whims, but that is not how it works.

Lady Alexa weaves a slow, careful, patient tale of moving towards a female-led relationship, complete with forced (yet loving) feminisation. She takes us from an awkward moment of coercing her husband to slip into a pair of knickers, through a long period of experimentation and gradual development. She does not just stand up one morning and insist her husband start wearing woman's clothing - she eases him into it, a little bit at a time, slowly overcoming his reluctance, and making the next step seem like a natural progression, until she has the housewife she has always dreamed of.

Yes, there is some humiliation involved, and Lady Alexa does talk frankly about punishment, but the feminisation of her husband is not about abuse or degradation. It is about taking someone that she loves, living out a fantasy, and transforming them into someone she finds aesthetically pleasing. She also acknowledges the real-life constraints of such a fantasy lifestyle, and talks about how deals with both the female-led relationship and feminisation aspects in public and at family gatherings.

No matter your gender or your role, How I Feminised my Husband is a fascinating read. More than that, it is an empowering read . . . an encouraging read . . . and one that assures us fantasies can indeed become reality.

Alexa Martinez is an author and a blog writer from London England writing under her femdom scene name of Lady Alexa. She is an advocate of female domination and writes about femdom, forced feminisation, gender transformation and male humiliation. Her blog is a true-life account of living in a female led relationship with her submissive feminised husband.

Savagely Swapped & Corporate Plaything by Alyson Belle (#genderswap #erotica)

Savagely Swapped was my introduction to the world of Alyson Belle, and it was a delightful one! Here we have a heroic fantasy, complete with violence and blood, where the strongest of men rule by the right of might . . . but where women, it seems, hold the real power.

Yes, the gender-swap is the centerpiece of the story, placing warrior-king Azlato at the mercy of his well-hung army, but there is more going on here than just that. It is not fully apparent until the final pages, which I will not spoil here, but I loved the cleverly subtle feminist theme interwoven into the story. Even in a world where women are enslaved the used by their captors, there is a power in their sexuality.

To get back to the gender-swap, it is very well done, particularly the way in which Azlato awakens to the physical sensations of his new body, and the manner in which is must come to terms with its magically-assured arousal. A prisoner of both body and mind, he is aware of what is happening, yet powerless to stop it.

There is actually more talking about sex than actual sex to the story, but that is perfectly fine because the real story is in the details surrounding the sex. The sex is hot, and the details are luscious, but Alyson smartly invites us to both think and feel.

Corporate Plaything, the newest story from Alyson Belle, is a wonderfully erotic twist on the old themes of being careful what you wish for.

As the story opens, Edward is sitting in a strip club, too poor to buy a second drink, and yet too infatuated to refuse the lap dance he cannot afford. Having lost his dream job to the new boss' chauvinistic push to fill the office with hot young women, he is stuck working two dead-end jobs, but too proud to admit it to his best friend.

Alyson does a wonderful job of exploring Edward's emotional state, making him a sympathetic character. We feel bad for his plight, and we are saddened that his friendship with Lisa is nothing more - and a strained friendship at that. There are so many ways he could have worded his wish, but I think the phrasing he used opens up a world of possibilities for his future.

Before he gets to that future, however, he must first navigate the challenges of a younger, sexier, amply proportioned feminine figure - all with the help of his lesbian neighbor. Needless to say, the sex here is hot and sumptuously detailed, but Addison is a wonderful character on her own, and I do hope we see more of her in future instalments.

Alyson Belle has had a passion for transformation and body swap stories for as long as she can remember. She now delights in sharing her passion with the world by writing some of the sexiest stories around. With Alyson in control, your hottest fantasy ever is always just a click away...
