Unleashed Blog hop'

Welcome to my stop pn the UNLEASHED BLOG HOP.

So you ask, how can you possibly allow a man to have complete control over you? And I say the answer is complex. I am a woman who is strong and in charge of a great many parts of her life. I have run offices and had a great many people report to me. So if you had asked me if I would ever let a man control me, my answer would have been a resounding …HELLS,NO.


And there is always a but, isn’t there? But then I found a man who showed me that in giving up control, I could find a new power. In trusting him to take care of me and my needs I could find freedom. When I am submissive, the stresses of the day to day world fall away. He takes those from me and allows me to just be me.

Did it happen overnight? No. Like David says in my book submission doesn’t always come easy and it takes time. And a good Dom understands that. They understand that a submissive isn’t a horse needing to be broken. But a person who is complex and for whatever their reason needs to feel dominated, controlled, call it what you will.

 My road to submission wasn’t one that I found easy, it wasn’t the road another submissive might have traveled. I never understood Doms who say that what I need is to be spanked until I can let out my emotions. Who are they to say? Only my Dom and I can say for sure. And I have to trust him to know what’s best for me. Giving up my control in or out of the bedroom to my Dom is a gift, one that should be cherished and respected. Because once a trust between a D/s is broken, it’s very hard to find your way back.

There is some insight into my submissive world. Do I live the lifestyle 24/7? Not at the moment, but I do as often as I can. Do most people know I am a submissive? No and most would be shocked. Is it anyone’s business? Not really, because what goes on between the two of us is for us and us alone. Do I like a good spanking?

Why not try it and you tell me.


Take one submissive with separation anxiety.
Add one master who has never wanted to settle down.
Mix in three Doms with specialties that make peoples toes curl.
And you have a recipe for Sex, Bondage and Orgasmic release.
Can Reyes heal and restore Ginny’s sense of security? Or will the night of the Doms prove too much for her to endure.
But first she had to prove to him as well as to herself that she was ready to trust again. Looking at the clock on the clean tan wall he stood up. Approaching her, his heels clicked the tiled floor, echoing through the sparse room. With the exception of the St Andrews Cross, Ginny was currently bound to and the chair he just vacated only a small twin daybed lay in the corner, nothing covered the walls and there were no windows as it wasn’t a peep show room. Only one door and it was locked from the inside.
Hearing him come near she lifted her face in his direction, he brought his hand to just centimeters above her skin, enough to feel her heat but nothing else. Tonight was about proving her trusted in him that she could finally hand over complete faith which he had spent years earning. She needed confidence in him to take care of her needs and wants, to be what she needed and to know that her submissiveness to him was a supreme gift he would above all cherish.
Leaning over her, he whispered, “Do as you’re told and trust in me.”


Follow me here.
Tell me are you Submissive or Dominant, or perhaps a switch and you will be entered to win your eformat choice of one of my two short stories.


  1. I don't know. The idea of giving over control is not an easy one for me but I also don't want to responsible for someone else. Guess I'm just vanilla except in my reading!

  2. Susan and there is nothing wrong with Vanilla thank you for hopping :)

  3. I'd call myself a switch depending on the person I am with. If the person is strong enough I will bow at their feet but if not I will have them begging at mine. Thanks for the hop and love this pic and book!

  4. I totally agree with you. I feel I'm very dependent and sometimes I just want to let go, let someone else take the reins.


  5. *waves hands* Submissive here!! Well I like to think so. I'm very strong willed and it's hard to find a man that is stronger (without being a bully) that I can trust enough to give over control. But when I find the right one, oh boy heaven!!


  6. I'd definitely say that I am submissive.

  7. Oh my, that black & white photo above gave me the 'shivers' and the 'belly clench'!!!! I bet that right there answers your question. lol I'm very much an independent woman, boss, wife, mom, teacher, nurse, and sometimes boxing referee (my kids) *laughs*, but I'll say I do enjoy relaxing and just feeling!
    Thank you very much for the chance on this hop.

  9. I am a submissive. Gave a try once at being Dominant but it just wasn't my thing.


  10. I lean more towards the Dominant side, though I could see myself as a switch.

  12. Although I am dominant I definitely could switch.

  13. Submissive...

  14. I am submissive to the core, I like the idea of switching roles but I don't think i could.

  15. I am a submissive switch, if that makes sense. I like both sides of the equation but am drawn just a little more to submissive ;)

  16. I would like to think that I am a Dominate but sometmes I feel like I just want someone else to tell me what to do. Now, if I can find a Dom....

    This book sounds great Erykah. Congrats on the release.

  17. It is always very interesting how one finds their "side". I am a submissive in a 24/7 D/s relationship. I can't imagine being anything else.

    I am a switch, but I do tend to be more dominate... I love love to spank my husband...but I also like to spanked...

  23. I'm a submissive. I'm a strong independent woman until it comes to the bedroom then he is in charge. :)

  24. If I were to be in a D/s relationship, I'd say I'd be the submissive one. But alas, I live in the vanilla world and have to get my fix by reading about it.

  25. I don't have any experience with BDSM relationships. I would say that I would be submissive in one though, and am definitely curious ;) Unfortunately, I just have not met anyone that I can trust this much.
