Tied up with 1NS

1NS Blog Hop

Welcome to my Blog stop on this little Blog Hop.

I am sure by now you are well aquainted with the 1NS series and the elusive Madame Eve. My very first story was published in the 1NS series so for me it holds a special place in my heart. And I have to admit I love being the #69 in the series.

What I love is how sexy the series is, every author adding to what they find sexy and compelling. Some stories are subtle in there appeal, while others are anything but. Some involve getting over heart ache some are more about finding out who you really are.

But they all involve the same thing... A one night stand with someone that Madame Eve thinks might just be the one and lets face it her track record is pretty damn good. I look forward to adding to the series and reading as many of the books as I can get my hands on.

Now my book falls into the anything BUT subtle category. If you like to sex hot and submissive. You might like to try out Learning to Submit if you are more of a vanilla person... See if coming out of your shell might be just the thing you need.

Learning to Submit
A 1 Night Stand Story

Belinda has spent her life trying to find who she is sexually. When Madame Eve on the 1 Night Stand Dating Service suggests what she needs is a Dom to control her submissive side, Belinda isn’t convinced but can’t deny her guilty attraction to the idea.

David, is a Dominant in need of a sub. Having heard rave reviews about Madame Eve’s power of matching people to their sexual mate, he gives in and contacts her. He isn’t really looking for just one night with a woman playing games, though, he lives the lifestyle and he craves the submission of a woman ready to join him.

Will this be Madame Eve’s first failure or is Belinda really ready to learn to submit?


Oh, how she wanted this man. Standing at his side, overlooking the city harbor, she purred, “So, now that I’m here, what do you plan to do with me?”
David’s hand dropped from her waist, caressing her ass as it fell. He stalked around her, circling twice more before stopping in front of her. He leaned his backside against the stone railing, crossed his arms, and licked his full bottom lip. “That depends on how far you’re planning to let me take it.”
Her skin heated by degrees as his dark eyes burned into her with desire, his lips curled. “Why don’t you try me? I’ll tell you when to stop.”
Straightening, he closed the few feet between them, his glittering eyes registering the pleasure her words gave him. “You do know what you are getting into, Belinda?”
She nodded, not ready to say the words out loud yet.
“I am not searching for someone playing sex games. This isn’t a game to me. I live the lifestyle twenty-four/seven, and I desire someone to share it with me. There are times in public where that doesn’t work, but when we are alone, my woman is submissive. Not a woman seeking to get her kicks.”
“I understand.”
“But you are conflicted.”
“I have no issue with you being conflicted. That’s natural, luv, and Madame Eve did warn me that you weren’t yet in touch with your submissive inner self. But I will trust that it is there and that you are indeed what I am searching for. She hasn’t steered colleagues of mine wrong yet.”

I think I would melt with a gentle hand on my lower back. As pathetic as it might sound, I have teared up seeing that gesture before. I suppose more so when I'm particularly emotional. LOL
