Lobster Cove’s BDSM Club by Marie Tuhart

6 Comments

Lobster Cove it the brain child of the owners Rhonda and RJ of The WildRose Press. On one of our weekly chat session Rhonda bought it to the authors and the brainstorming began. I happened to miss the chat because I was leaving for a writing retreat the next day. But I downloaded the transcript and began reading.

I saw the potential, so since I was on a writing retreat, I wrote out a short synopsis and sent it to my editor who then sent it on to the editor who was in charge of the project. I was told to go ahead and write my story, which was published as Red Club Temptation.

It was a challenge to place a BDSM club in the small town of Lobster Cove, but I was able to do by doing a little research. And had lots of fun writing the story. Here’s the blurb for Red Club Temptation:

 

RedClubTemptation_w9002_300She needs a dungeon master. He needs her secrets.

Red Club owner Jessie Michaels isn’t looking for love, just someone competent to monitor her dungeon in Lobster Cove’s only BDSM club. But a new Dominant catches her eye and makes her tingle in all the right places. She’s called away for business before she can catch his name, but not before that commanding voice tempts her for more.

Caleb Drake has returned to Lobster Cove to find out what makes the Red Club so successful only to discover the sexy redheaded sub he met the night before is actually his boss. He vows to keep business separate from pleasure, but the temptation to see if the iron-fisted club owner is truly submissive in the bedroom becomes too much.

But when Caleb’s ulterior motive is revealed, will Jessie be ruled by business…or pleasure?

Excerpt:

Time to find out if she was a Domme or sub. This time when their gazes met and held, he mouthed the word “Obey.” Her gaze dropped. He sucked in a breath. Damn, she was a submissive. And just what he needed. He couldn’t help himself as he strode across the room.

Caleb stopped when he was within touching distance, and her gaze never rose from the floor. Excitement stirred in his spine for the first time in a long time.

“Hello,” he said.

“Good evening, Sir.” Her voice was soft but calm, eyes still downcast.

He cupped her chin and tilted her head up. “Look at me, sweetheart, I want to see your eyes.”

Hazel eyes to go with beautiful red hair. He loved looking into the eyes of his subs, unless of course he had them blindfolded, and then he would make them use other senses.

“Are you available?” He glanced at her wrist. No band. He’d been told anyone with a black band was off limits.

“Excuse me?” a male voice intruded.

Caleb’s gaze left her to see one of the dungeon masters standing next to them. “You’re needed in the other room, Red.”

Her spine stiffened, and she lifted her chin out of Caleb’s hold. “Thanks, Ryan. I’ll be right there.”

Ryan nodded and gave Caleb the once over before disappearing into the private club area.

“Sorry, but I have to go.”

“I understand, but first.” He cupped her cheeks and brushed a kiss across her soft lips. She leaned into him when he released her mouth. “I’ll be here if you want to play later.” He released her and stepped back.

Her fingers touched her lips and then she smiled. “I might take you up on that.” Then she strode away hips swaying.

  1. Thanks so much for hanging out with us today, Marie!

  2. You’re welcome, Lisa. I will be popping in and out. So any has a question please feel free to ask.

  3. The excerpt really made me want to read more! Thanks for the chance to win!!!

  4. So cool to see that the Lobster Cove series is expanding! I had thought that The Schucker’s Booktique was the last one ( http://www.snarkymomreads.com/?p=7772 ) but I’m glad to see that there are now erotic entrees in the series! Okay, so you’ve piqued my interest – exactly WHAT type of research did you do to envision a BDSM Club in the midst of a touristy area with lots of supernatural influences? LOL! Are you trying to say that there was a “Cabot Club” in Jessica Fletcher’s Cabot Cove? [Closing my eyes real tight before I get a visual of Angela Lansbury in leather….]

    Thanks for sharing the excerpt – now I’m off to Goodreads to put it on my TBR so I remember to pick it up during my next shopping spree 🙂 LOL!!

    • SnarkyMom, sorry to be so late in replying. The nasty virus hit my house and I’ve been laid up all week. As for what type of research, I looked back into history to see what a speak easy might be called in the late 1800’s and went from there. I then just wove the Red Club into the town’s history. As for “Cabot Club” have no idea, but somehow I doubt it. Have a great day.

  5. I love hoe it starts out. If I don’t win it, I’ll probably buy it. 🎉🎈🎆
