O Captain, My Captor by D.B. Francais (#lesbian #mermaid #romance)

So long as you are okay with the dubious consent issues in the first few scenes, O Captain, My Captor is actually a wonderful bit of erotic fantasy.

Lorelei, a beautiful mermaid and royal princess, awakens to find herself - quite literally - a fish out of water. Captive of the swashbuckling Captain Vine, she does not understand where she is, and cannot comprehend what is happening to her. There is an almost child-like innocence to her that is sweet, but could make some readers uncomfortable, especially as the Captain begins taking inappropriate advantage.

Accepting that this is a fantasy, I trusted in where things were going and found myself fascinated with how beautifully D.B. Francais describes her introduction to pleasure. Not only is Lorelei a mermaid and a virgin, but until the moment her drying tail magically splits into a pair of legs, she never had the equipment for pleasure. While Captain Vine definitely does take advantage of that innocence - I nearly died when she promised kissing her nether lips is a traditional greeting! - she is never cruel or mean-spirited. In fact, she takes great delight in introducing her mermaid captive to the concept of orgasm.

Fortunately, that sense of innocence is carried through the entire story, with Lorelei literally having no concept of what is around her. She has never experienced the human word, and many of the words that Captain Vine uses are pure gibberish to her. It is when the Captain comes to understand how deep her alienation is that the story really begins to move forward. Sure, Lorelei is still a captive, chained at the ankle to keep her from leaping overboard, but a friendship develops that allows their erotic escapades to move into the realm of something akin to BDSM romance.

This is not just a story of sex on a ship, though - it is a wonderful fantasy adventure with a real story behind it. O Captain, My Captor was an unexpected delight, and I do so look forward to the next three books in the series.
D.B. Francais loves complex characters, easy banter, and kinky situations, and can be contacted at DBFrancais@gmail.com for those who wish to send fan mail or suggestions for later episodes, discuss possible writing commissions, or just say hi.

Shameless Self-Promotion: Review Round-up

Okay, I hope you will indulge me in a little shameless self promotion, but I received a few very lovely reviews of my stories lately, and . . . well, I would like to show them off!


Moctezuma Johnson had this to say about Futanari Moans and the Mummy's Hand (Job):
I’m not going to spoil the payoff at the end by clumsily telling you what phantasmagoric nastiness befalls Futanari Moans but I guarantee you that if you’re a fan of futa fiction and hot action your mouth will be wide open and you’ll need that box of nearby tissues.
You can check out his complete review here.

Walker Long, meanwhile, shared this short by lovely review on Amazon & Goodreads:
Futanari Moans, the protagonist of this story, is a combination of Indiana Jones, Lara Croft, and Mutant Dickgirls From Outer Space. She combines adventure, sex appeal, wackiness, and wild kink like no other. The sexual situations here are pervy turned up to 11, but there's a legit adventure story going on, too. There are quite a few loose ends left at the end of this book, so I think we can expect to see more of Futanari Moans in the future.
While the magnificent Irene Clearmont had this to say about it:
This is probably one for fans of the genre, this is fun (and that is rare in adult fiction anyway), a romp where sliding blocks, pouring sand and monsters endanger a hero-heroine who is spending much effort (and body-fluid) in escaping the inevitable. Its oddity has a delicious charm of it's own and I can safely say that I have never read anything like it before
You can check out her complete review here.

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥


Cuckolded by the Futa Motorcycle Club has gotten some lovely lately as well, with Shaun Putaine saying:
I loved the pacing of this story, as well as the lighthearted fun and acceptance of sissy princess' antics. The character development, descriptions, and the plot were all fantastic. There's plenty of hot, sweet, sexiness throughout the story all of which is fantastically described.
You can check out his complete review here.

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

Thanks to those who has given them a read, and thanks (in advance) to everyone who has a copy sitting on their to-be-read shelf!

3 TG/Age Regression Summer Stories by Courtney Captisa & Claire Bear

What could be a better way to end the summer than indulging in a little transgender, age regression fantasy from Courtney Captisa & Claire Bear? Well, how about indulging in 3 TG/Age Regression Summer Stories from the genre's leading literary ladies!

Camp Aphrodite starts out simply, with a young man whose moment of carelessness costs him his job at a summer camp for teenage girls. With nowhere to go and no money to go there, his fellow counselors come up with a plan that will see him feminized, drugged, and trained to fit in. All goes well, until the night of the coed dance, when everything is exposed, leading to one of the darker endings Courtney and Claire have ever written.

Bikinis Over Brains was my favorite of the three stories, with a young man who gets a job tutoring a cute, spoiled, slightly cruel rich girl. This was a story of female domination, forced feminization, and erotic hypnosis, complete with boys in bikinis, french maids, and more. The moment her scheme comes unraveled was glorious, and the consequences were even better.

Another Wish was an interesting tale, one that takes a magical, fanciful approach to the genre. It was a story of wishes, dreams, and regrets, involving a career minded young man whose speaking engagement at a highschool takes a strange twist. I loved how the mental and physical transformation played out, and thought Courtney and Claire did a fantastic job of capturing Andrew's growing confusion.
Courtney Captisa has had a strong interest in transformation since childhood. In her early teens, she discovered several webpages such as Fictionmania. She enjoys writing clean stories.

The Erotic Worlds of the Janus Key Chronicles by Alana Melos (#erotica #bisexual)

Magic portals are one of the oldest tropes in imaginative literature. Whether it is Alice's rabbit hole, the Sliders' wormholes, or Roland's floating doorways, they provide us with instantaneous passage to other worlds, other times, and other realities.

As much fun as those portals are, though, they are rarely as sexy as when in the hands of the lovely and talented Alana Melos. Dirk and Debbie, the twin sibling protagonists of her Erotic Worlds of the Janus Key Chronicles, have no idea where the Janus Key will take them next, but each orgasmic leap promises an adventure.

Rump Raiding Raptors is a fun, but silly, story of a dinosaur-based society that reminded me of a Jurassic Park-Zootopia. The erotic element was fantastic, though, with a horny Raptor cop having his way with Dirk. Not quite the opening I expected, but I loved it. The Perils of Penetrating Pixies was even better, with erotic scenes that were frantic and inventive, especially with Debbie's first erotic explorations by the tiny pixies. Oh, my!

Riddled by the Sphinx is where the series really hit its stride, taking us to an alternate Egypt with a living Sphinx. It was a fun, it was sexy, but it was also dangerous. Sadistic Spirits changes things up again, introducing us to a 1970's séance, complete with leisure suits and groovy slang. Debbie's erotic mauling by unseen spirits is undeniably erotic, but also rather chilling. Knob Gobblin' Hobgoblins ends this first collection on a high note with a more traditional fantasy tale of dragons, elves, water spirits, warriors, and hobgoblins. Dirk's role as a supernatural sexual surrogate is suitably surreal, and I loved how Alana deal with his blossoming sexuality.

The Erotic Worlds of the Janus Key Chronicles was everything I could have hoped for over a long weekend by the lake, sitting under the stars, with my imagination in full flight. Alana mixes solid storytelling, great world-building, and over-the-top eroticism, with plenty of geeky nods to readers, and I am so looking forward to Volume Two!

Alana Melos is a struggling author who found out writing erotica gave her much more freedom in writing than when she wrote the "serious" literary stuff. Since this discovery, she's endeavored to write the very best interesting, weird, plot-driven, and hot erotica she can. She sincerely hopes to just entertain people, whether they read for the plot, the weird factor, or the racy factor. Along with her loving husband, she lives with a crazy cat.

Freebie Fetish Friday - Putting the TG in TGIF!

Well, if it's Friday (let us just pretend I am not a day late!), 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.

                            

Enjoy!

Cuckolded By The Boss by Katt Ford (#lesbian #cuckold #femdom)

Okay, so if you have not noticed by now, I do tend to have a wee fetish for forced bisexuality. There is something about the idea of a straight character submitting to a same sex lover that excites me, especially when it is part of a larger dom/sub relationship.

Usually, when you are talking forced bisexuality and cuckolding, it is the husband who is forced to submit to his wife's male bull. In Cuckolded By The Boss, Katt Ford flips that expectation on its head, presenting us with a wife who is forced to submit to her husband's female boss.

Esme, Lee's boss and Alice's mistress, is a gloriously powerful woman. She is bold, confident, and assured in her sexuality. She is and out-and-proud lesbian, but she loves having straight women bend beneath her will. Their relationship is an incredibly erotic scenario, especially because Alice continues to cling to her heterosexuality, even as she descends deeper and deeper into submissive depravity.

Unlike most hotwife scenarios, however, Lee is not just a chaste, frustrated cuckold. He and Alice remain passionately in love, and the way they combine confession and carnality is delicious. What would be humiliating for other couples is empowering for them, driving them to new heights of passion. She confesses all of her deepest, darkest, most embarrassing submissions, and it only serves to drive them closer together. When Esme ups the ante, however, sharing Alice with her girlfriends one weekend, and then sharing the video evidence with Lee at the office, things really get interesting.

Cuckolded By The Boss is intensely erotic, as much a treat for lovers of lesbian domination as for fans of cuckolding. I loved every humiliating scene, and I cannot wait to indulge in more.

Katt Ford graduated from college and went straight to a boring job as a receptionist. While killing time behind her desk, she began reading erotic fiction on line. Before long, she decided to try her hand at writing it. Katt is an equal opportunity pervert. She likes stories about strong men and strong women, and the people who love them. Is it better to give or to receive? She still can't decide. Katt lives in Western Canada with her extremely open-minded husband and the best cat in the world.

The Atheist and the Parrotfish by Richard Barager (#trans #atheist #fiction)

As intrigued as I was by the concept of The Atheist and the Parrotfish, it was a struggle to get through. The characters were largely unlikable, the spirituality was heavy handed, and the moral implications were rather uncomfortable. Richard Barager is an author who asks some interesting questions, and he demonstrates a remarkable sympathy for his crossdressing plot device, but it just was not enough for me.

Ennis Willoughby is a troubled crossdresser and the recipient of a dead woman's heart and kidney. He is convinced that a piece of her soul came along with those organs, and that his own feminine identity is fighting with her for dominance. His gender struggles are well documented and, aside from unfortunate terminology and unnecessary reassurances about sexuality, he is treated well by the story. I liked him, felt for him, and I wanted to see him succeed.

His doctors are equally troubled, plagued by infidelity, broken relationships, and self-doubt. That alone would make them unlikable, but what makes the story unlikable is the inference that their lack of spirituality is to blame for their lack of morality. Cullen Brodie is like one of those cartoon atheists you see in badly drawn religious tracts, a sexist, misogynistic man who cannot have a single thought without his hatred for religion coming into it. It starts out as awkward, gets uncomfortable, and becomes detestable by the end, when - surprise, surprise - he has a spiritual awakening and instantly becomes a decent person by finding God.

I wish I could be more positive about The Atheist and the Parrotfish, because Barager does have some really interesting things to say about his transgender character. I loved the suggestion that being transgender is a gift, and that straddling two genders is something special. For such a spiritual book, it really is gender-positive. Unfortunately, Ennis is only a third of the novel, and not enough to salvage its other flaws.

Richard Barager is a nephrologist, treating dialysis patients and kidney transplant recipients. By night, he writes fiction. He believes the two finest callings in life are doctor and writer, one ministering to the human condition, the other illuminating it, each capable of transforming it. He is a champion of the healing power of literature. Fiction explores meaning in a way science cannot. Sometimes only fiction tells the truth.

At Mother's Command by Kay Brandt (#femdom #erotica)

At Mother's Command may very well be the most intriguing opening to a fetish-themed story that I have ever read. Kay Brandt has really stepped outside the normal confines of the genre to explore the real-world implications (and consequences) of a BDSM lifestyle.

It all begins, rather oddly, with a young woman approaching her 18th birthday. Although it is clear her parents love her, their relationship seems rather cold and distant, with absolutely no displays of affection between them. She worries that they are headed for a divorce, but the truth of the situation is something for which she cannot possibly prepare herself.

The story is something of a dark twist on the fairy tale themes of adoption and secret legacies - only Max's mother isn't a Queen, she is a Grand Dominatrix . . . and her parents are not 'normal' surrogates trusted to raise her, they are lifestyle submissives entrusted with their Mistress' child. As you can expect, there is a lot of heavy emotional turmoil here, complete with all the fears, sense of betrayal, and uncertainty you would expect.

That is only half the story, however. The other half takes place in Sumera's private BDSM retreat, where Stella and Rocco are free to resume their submission, while slowly introducing Max into this strange new world of collars, leashes, and commands. It is something of a guilty pleasure to be enjoying the erotic aspects with all of that background turmoil, and it definitely feels strange to take such voyeuristic pleasure in Sumera's sexual dominance, knowing her daughter is huddled a on the other side of the mansion, feeling scared and betrayed, but Brandt juggles it all perfectly. In fact, I would say the relationships in this story are exquisite, with the overlapping of worlds awkwardly fascinating, while the erotic aspects are quite sumptuous.

All those contrasts do come a head in the end, leading to an unexpected confrontation that really opens the next chapter to ever deeper, more intricate emotional complexities.

Kay Brandt is a seductive storyteller, award-winning adult filmmaker and bestselling author, delivering a passionate blend of story and explicit, graphic content. Kay's current creative passions include writing/directing a new genre of adult films based on erotic books.
