Hot in Handcuffs Blog Hop

When trying to decide what my ebook giveaway would be for this blog hop I discovered something interesting. I contemplated the books I've written and was surprised that three of them have heroes who are cops and Doms. Two self confessed Doms and one that is dominant but doesn't claim the I think the cop thing must say something about me and my love of men in uniform. The Dom thing is a given, I'm active in the BDSM lifestyle so Doms are my preference. Anyway, back to the ebook I decided to give away. The 'Hot in Handcuffs'  title of the blog means I want to stick with a kinky handcuff theme, but which alpha-male, dominant, cop do I choose? I love them all, in fact I love all the men that have featured in my books. I've fallen in love with each and everyone because in my eyes they're all perfect. Mainly because they're fictional and I don't have to be annoyed with them leaving the toilet seat up or controlling the TV
But I have to pick one, so I'm going back to where it all started. My first book, Finding Angel. That's the ebook I'm giving away and it features the cop I'm going to highlight today...Christian Shore. (For any FSOG fans reading this I'd like to say no, it's not a copycat name, my Christian graced the pages of Finding Angel before the other Mr Gray was released).
When I wrote Finding Angel one of my crit readers told me she thought I favored the other Shore brother in the story, of course I denied that because it wasn't true. Christian was my first Dom policeman and that means he has a special place in my heart. I like him because he's not your average brooding Dom. He has a sense of humor, a quick wit and a devious mind when it comes to BDSM play. He's also a damn good cop, protective of the woman he loves and great in bed, well, at least that's what Angel tells me. I tried to write him so he was as realistic as possible, he's a Dom but he also has a life that encompasses family, friends (both kinky and vanilla), work and relationship problems. Along with his brother, Daniel, he Doms the heroine of the book, Angel. He doesn't Dom the whole world. I guess, like all my BDSM characters, Christian reflects my personal view of the kink community in the books I write. It's part of who we are, it's not the whole of us.
I'm going to finish this post with a short excerpt from Finding Angel that contains one of my favorite quotes from Christian. He's talking to Angel on the phone not long after they've met...
 Finding Angel, 2011...Excerpt
"I have mine black, no sugar. Feel free to come and serve it to me in bed," Christian jested. "You know I could arrest you for trying to charge me for phone sex…"
"Yeah, sure," Angel quipped back at him.
"No really, I’m a cop." Christian stated, "As a Dom I wanted a profession where carrying cuffs wasn’t questioned."
‘You are way too nice to be a cop," Angel replied. "Most of the cops I meet are pricks."
"Serious, how many cops do you meet?" Christian sounded intrigued.
"Too many lately. So what are you planning to do today?" The fact Angel changed the subject so quickly wasn’t lost on Christian and he decided to store the information away for a later date.  

To win an ebook copy of Finding Angel simply tell me what's your favorite kind of Dom to read about? Do you like them all powerful and controlling or do you like a little bit of sensitivity to them? Or is there something else that turns you on about a dominant male?

  8. I like a Dom who's in touch with his partner's needs, and knows just how far to push. (My favorite Dom, Jason Cooper in Lynn Lorenz's BEST VACATION THAT NEVER WAS, is excellent at this.) In Dommes, I like a wicked sense of mischief!

  25. The best way to describe the type of Dom I love is a strong alpha male we cares about his subs needs before his own. Strong, powerful but at the same time tender, gentle, caring, loving and loyal. Think of Master Adam or Master Damian in Kallypso Masters Rescue Me series. :)

    Thanks for this giveaway!



  26. I love a Dom who is strong, powerful, but also know how to take care of his sub. Makes sure her needs, wants, and desires are met, even if she doesn't know them yet.
