BDSM in NY City 3-Day Intensive Workshop Weekend

If you have interest in the BDSM lifestyle and/or interest in writing in this popular genre with accuracy, in all aspects, this is the workshop for you.

I attended this workshop last year and can highly recommend it. I learned so much and I believe it greatly improved my writing skills in this genre. Dr. Charley and her guest speakers were warm, friendly and open throughout the workshop. They were eager to answer tons of questions! And boy did I have a lot. They were very patient with me. The owners and patrons of the BDSM Club Paddles and the fetish shops we visited were all wonderful and welcoming. I felt comfortable and quickly put at ease. It was fun and I met a number a great people. Yes, at first I was a little nervous. I had never been to a BDSM club before. I thought I would stand out as an outsider, intruding on their private world and snubbed, but that wasn't the case at all. I would love to go back.

With everything I learned, and the inspiration derived from the experience, I’ve written a number of BDSM related stories that are out on submission right now! And I have a number of stories I’m working on. I’ll be announcing good news as it comes in. Fingers crossed!

Want to have a better understanding of the emotional and psychological connections between people engaged in this highly erotic and often misunderstood lifestyle? This is the perfect workshop. I’m disappointed that I can’t return this year, but I hope to make it in 2014. Dr. Charley is planning even more.

Dominating BDSM Billionaires by Malia Mallory

Her Wish, His Command by Malia Mallory


Hi Malia, Thanks for being a guest today on the Passion Sense blog. The books sounds hot and sexy. And how wonderful to live in Hawaii. Thanks for telling us about your BDSM series.

Thank you so much for having me as a guest today!

Her Wish, His Command is the third book in the Dominating BDSM Billionaires Series. His Need, Her Desire (Book 1) is currently free at most online retailers. His Desire, Her Surrender (Book 2) hit bestseller lists in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada and Australia. Look for His Passion, Her Temptation (Book 4) in July 2013.


His Need, Her Desire (Book 1) is currently FREE at most retail outlets.


Her Wish, His Command Blurb

Doctor Anna Foster may just get what she wants: sexy fellow researcher Jonah Granger. She's been in love with him for years, but Jonah has always been more interested in work at his family's business, Granger Pharma, than romance. Now that they've admitted their attraction, Anna may even be able to tell him what she really wants: to submit to him.

But Granger Pharma faces a hostile takeover. Sensitive data and samples are missing from Anna and Jonah's lab; it may be corporate espionage. Everyone is under suspicion and, and they're even beginning to question each other. Anna must discover the truth if she's going to save both her job and her relationship with the man she dreams of serving.


Her Wish, His Command Excerpt

Jonah sipped from his cup. "This coffee is better than usual. What did you do?"

"I washed out the pot and filter?" Anna laughed and threw her braid back over her shoulder. Wasn't playing with hair supposed to be a flirty thing to do? She glanced into Jonah's eyes and saw his pupils dilate ever so slightly.

Jonah placed his cup on the counter. "I usually just dump the old coffee."

Anna reached to top him off, making sure she grazed him again. She turned and put the coffee pot back in its place. Her hip bumped him.

"Anna?" he asked in a deep, questioning tone.

"Yes?" She paused. "Jonah?" She drew his name out on her tongue.

His eyes locked with hers. "What's this about?"

Anna broke eye contact as his scrutiny became too intense. "What's what about?"

"This." He gestured toward her. "Is this about yesterday?"

Anna wasn't sure where to go with her plan. "Yesterday?" She feared her manner gave the impression of stupid instead of coy.

"Yes, yesterday. We had a moment, for lack of a better term. Is this some game?"

Anna straightened. "Game? What is that supposed to mean?" Her voice lost its teasing edge.

"It means that either you are trying to needle me or maybe … maybe you want something?"

Anna frowned. "Those are the only two explanations?"

Jonah considered for an instant. "Anna, you're not interested in me, are you?"

Anna thumped her mug on the counter. "Of course not." Color rose in her face.

"Anna, about yesterday. I didn't mean to be unprofessional." His apologetic manner unnerved her.

"You were not unprofessional," Anna bit out. What a disaster. Was he going to say something kind? Anna didn't think she could bear the embarrassment.

Jonah took her hand lightly in his. Her hand trembled, and Anna was sure he felt it. "Are you afraid?" He looked into her eyes. "Or aroused?"

Anna swayed as his calloused thumb stroked her palm. The lab seemed to shrink, the walls gathering close around them.

He tugged on her hand, bringing to his lips. He nipped her fingertip.

Anna struggled to remain impassive as her blood surged. She sensed she hadn't fooled Jonah with her imperfect façade of calm.

A predatory masculine smile crossed his face. "I see." He sucked her fingertip into his mouth.


Her Wish, His Command is available for preview and purchase at the following online retailers.

Sizzling Summer Reads

It’s official, summer is here and it’s starting out as a hot one. Do you have your sizzling, hot reads ready for the beach?? Well, time to start downloading a bunch on your Kindle, NOOK or other fav reader or heading to your fav bookstore and stuffing those babies in your beach bag.

I’ve been typing like a maniac over the last year. If you took one look at my nails you’d believe me. I gave up the attempt at the bi-weekly acrylic nail jaunt. My typing messed them up anyway. So I’ve decided to accept the worn-down, stumpy nails, and keep on writing those books! The payoff is a new record for me:

Five manuscripts of various lengths out on submission! I’m hoping to share some good news soon.

While I’m working on my next few stories (and I have a number of them in the works), I thought I’d make a few summer reading suggestions. These are just a small sampling. I have a ton of favorite authors, and not just erotic romance. My TBR pile is stacked to the virtual ceiling in my NOOK. But this will keep you busy for a while. Please share your latest release or your favorite read. WHAT ARE YOU READING NOW??


Mercy and Redemption -- Cris Anson

Searching in an old cemetery for likely gravestones to illustrate her colonial cookbook, Mercy Howe meets two hunks who are tracing their ancestry. And sparks fly. Literally.
When Mercy casually touches Seth and Adam, her vividly erotic vision involving all three of them feels like a memory, not a dream, and awakens long-dormant sexual urges. With their kisses achingly familiar, she welcomes each in turn into her body. Then she spends a no-holds-barred weekend with both men in her bed and discovers an intimacy—and a past—that blows her mind.
As memories resurface from three hundred years ago, Mercy will have to choose whether to relive the experiences from their joint past or forge a new bond with either Seth or Adam. Or both.

A love worth the wait.
Drew Severson is honored to be included in his best friend's wedding, yet seeing Gabe so happy makes Drew dwell on the emptiness in his life. When Gabe suggests an evening at Anything Goes, Drew decides sex is exactly what he needs to rid him of his depressed state. Man or woman doesn't matter to him, as long as the sex is hot and sweaty.
The attraction Everett Payne feels when he sees Drew at the sex club is instant and explosive. What starts as a night of sexploits between Drew, Everett, and a female club attendant morphs into a private weekend at Everett's house for the two men.
Drew is hesitant to become involved with the younger man due to his Army obligations. It doesn't matter to Everett that Drew has a minimum of six more years to serve his country. He's found the perfect man and is willing to wait for him…no matter how long it takes.

 Velocity book cover
Book four in the Buckin’ Bull Riders series.
Paolo D’Allesandro has been living in his older brother Marco’s shadow. But he’s getting older now and realizing he and Marco don’t want the same things. He’s not sure what his next step is, but knows he needs to quit riding to figure it out.
Savannah Harrington is a grad student working on a thesis about adrenaline junkies. She’s joined the bull riders’ tour to study the men and their motivations to willingly take part in a dangerous sport. Upon meeting Paolo, they both feel an instant connection. She can’t stay away from the sexy Italian and his mind-numbing skills in the bedroom, but knows the relationship can’t last.
Both wish their circumstances were different, but Paolo doesn’t think he has anything to offer Savannah, and Savannah doesn’t want to pressure Paolo into another life decision that will make someone else happy, but not fulfill him. As her time to go back to school draws closer, they need to figure out how to get their highest score yet—in the game of love.
Cuffed to Him

Joanna Carter needs a scintillating interview from hunky, jet-setting billionaires, Giff and Josh Spencer. When they show her their island—and their dungeon—Jo knows it's folly to resist.
Joanna Carter earned—and carelessly dashed—a reputation as a hard-driving journalist. Now she has a chance to resurrect her career by interviewing her childhood friends and billionaire brothers, Giff and Josh Spencer. The men were once her next door neighbors. Now, they have bad press as playboys and Jo figures they need her as much as she needs them.

But when they fly Jo to their private island, dumping her laptop, her camera, and her tape recorder, they cuff her and usher her into their private dungeon. Then they thrill her with replays of their loving when all of them were young.

Yet now that they are older, is it wise to resurrect the BDSM and menage that fulfilled them? And what happens to Jo's career if she throws over a good interview for lots of their good loving?

Should a woman give up everything for two men who once meant the world to her?

Bared to You

 He was beautiful and brilliant, jagged and white-hot. I was drawn to him as I'd never been to anything or anyone in my life. I craved his touch like a drug, even knowing it would weaken me. I was flawed and damaged, and he opened those cracks in me so easily...
Gideon knew. He had demons of his own. And we would become the mirrors that reflected each other's most private worlds...and desires.
The bonds of his love transformed me, even as I prayed that the torment of our pasts didn't tear us apart...



Dark Judgment, Book One
Warrior, lover…savior. A winged avenger with chocolate feathers and lavender eyes haunts Tamar Ridgeway’s dreams—her erotic escape after surviving a horrible plane crash and enduring years of painful physical therapy. But fantasy becomes terrifying reality when she’s attacked by a mythical creature from her darkest nightmares. Now her sexy dream warrior is vowing to save her, whether she wants his protection or not.
Nicolai Abioud, judge and executioner of the hippogryph, is stunned when the woman he rescues is the same who submits to him nightly in his dreams…and a replica of his dead wife. He’s fascinated by her beauty and spirit, consumed by the craving to touch…to take. Yet he lost his one true bondmate five hundred years ago. And falling for a human—no matter how beautiful—is a foolish risk. But the choice to love may be snatched away. Danger is closing in. They must conquer their enemy and fears, or be doomed to lose the love of a millennium.

He’s undercover. She’s in over her head.
Yoga instructor Kylie Roberts is the good twin. At least she was—until an accident forces Kylie to step into her twin’s sexy stilettos at a posh Hollywood “men’s club." But nothing could've prepared Kylie for the dead body in the club’s parking lot or the ridiculously hot detective who insists the killer is targeting her regulars.
Detective Trevor McCade needs Kylie’s help to draw out the killer. It means long nights undercover and long dances where Kylie’s body tempts him with sensual promises. Dances that leave them both wanting more. But despite Kylie's hidden identity and the danger lurking in the shadows, it’s only a matter of time before Kylie and Trevor take this undercover operation under the covers…



Prince Alexander Ivanov is scrambling to save his reputation and his livelihood. One of the Russian Nights Casino's hostesses has disappeared, and his business is suddenly under investigation by the FBI for associations with the mob and money laundering.

Special Agent Kathleen Martinez has no patience with rich, entitled aristocrats, especially one like Alexander Ivanov whom she believes is involved in the vicious human trafficking ring which she'd tried--and failed--to shut down two years earlier. With a second chance to bring him to justice, she goes undercover in the casino, but instead of facing the villain she expected, she finds herself battling a sizzling attraction to the man.

Now, forced to work together to trace the source of the illegal activities, the danger--and the passion between them--grows out of control, and they slowly begin to realize the biggest danger isn't to the casino, it's to their lives…and to their hearts.

Book VI of the Knights of the Board Room Series

Released May 2013

Janet Albright prefers her men submissive, her relationships confined to a club environment. Which is why her attraction to former Navy SEAL Maxwell Ackerman doesn't make a lot of sense. There isn't a submissive bone in his honed, muscular body, suggesting that her interest in Kensington & Associate's head limo driver is best indulged as a private fantasy. The problem is, after a crisis situation reveals a different side of them both, the attraction becomes mutual and undeniable.

They take the plunge, willing to see if the give-and-take of their unexpected relationship can satisfy their deepest desires. Unfortunately, ghosts from their past might take the reins from them both, destroying the balance of power before their love can find a way to tip the scales.

Book 10 in the New Species series. The books can be read as stand-alone stories, but it is advisable to read them in order to get the most enjoyment from the series.
Dr. Joyce Yards has never met anyone as sexy or as irresistible as 466. He refuses to discuss anything except getting her naked beneath him. Their therapy sessions are growing hotter, his raw hunger for her is becoming aggressive, and she is falling for him. Joy knows the dire consequences if she gives in to desire. It will break her heart but she must walk away.
Moon has been drugged. He is feral and dangerous to everyone. The NSO doctors turn to the only female Moon ever cared about—the one who left him in the desert two years ago.
Moon isn’t the same male Joy once knew but she is willing to put her life on the line for him. There are no rules now. If sex tames the wild beast and triggers his fractured memories, allowing him moments of lucidity, then Joy will give him her body and her soul. She’ll do whatever it takes to save him.

Success Element vs Passion For Life

Is there a success element, a basic chemical substance that makes some people more driven and predisposed to be wealthy and powerful? Is that a bad or good thing? Are you working so hard toward your goals you forgot how to have fun, sit and enjoy a sunset, read a good book, take a walk with a loved one? Has this drive for success and material wealth caused sleepless nights, ruined your appetite, or made you give up on exercise? Achieving goals and still not happy? Maybe in the mad pursuit of money and power you’ve lost the PASSION FOR LIFE. Working towards goals and success is great (NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT) but over-striving and beating oneself into the ground is not good.

This week, June 6, 2013, Huffington Post with Arianna Huffington and Mika Brzezinski are hosting a conference about The Third Metric, Redefining Success Beyond Money and Power.

There are a number of great articles like: “In Praise of Idleness”, “Rethink Your Sense of Purpose” , “5 Things You Need to Know About Your Pursuit of Happiness”.

Some of the wealthiest men and women in the world aren’t always the happiest or healthiest. In the struggle for power, wealth and fame there can be consequences: poor health, strained or failed relationships, loss of self-worth, apathy, diminished energy, etc. Also some over achievers tend to forget to enjoy the simple things in life, let days, weeks, months, years pass by, lose compassion for people, friends loved ones.


How do we get off this self-destructive treadmill?

·        Balance and simplify. There’s nothing wrong with setting goals and wanting success but balance the time and focus on what’s truly important.

·         Re-evaluate. How much “stuff” do you really need? Can you de-clutter and downsize your material needs?

·         If you’re not getting enough sleep, not eating or exercising, not spending enough time with spouse, children or getting enough alone time to recharge then maybe a readjustment needs to be made.

·         Don’t live in a vacuum. Get out spend time with friends. Do a random act of kindness for a stranger. Be more courteous to the drivers on the road even if they aren’t. What goes around…

·         Women especially make many sacrifices for their children and spouses. But they do need to take time for themselves and family needs to recognize the importance of this.

·        Be aware of the world around you. Don’t let it pass by. Enjoy each day. Look for the good in people instead of complaining about the bad.

·        Get away from your desk and take a walk. (And turn OFF the cell phone). Simple but how long can you get away from your desk, cell phone, email, social networking, etc.? Many of us eat at our desks, including dinner. Not only are we eating dinner in front of our desks or the TV, but we have at least one or two electronic devices at arms-length away. Really, go to a beach and see how many people sit there with their phones attached to their ears. (A Nook or Kindle is okay because they’re reading a book. That’s relaxing.) J

Maybe we forgot how to slow down and enjoy the simple things in life like a child chasing soap bubbles in a green field.

Do you have any suggestions for how to bring Passion to Life? Please share.

Success and happiness are possible but not at the expense of what is truly important in life. I’ve seen the poorest families in Guatemala many years ago living in shacks without electricity, plumbing or even a bed. Children didn’t even have shoes. And they were probably some of the happiest and proudest people I’ve ever met.
