Investigative journalist Avia Rivers is sent to the remote, fortress-like home of sex toy magnate and eRom publisher Benedict Hart, for an exclusive interview. The strong-willed Avia is shocked by her sexual response to the compelling CEO, who she was mocking just an hour before. Hart challenges Avia’s ideas about sex, sensuality and what a woman wants:
“Why would a psychologically healthy, self-confident woman want to be spanked as part of a sexual encounter?” Avia asked. “And why, if that’s her choice, would she have to be restrained, at all?”
“For most users,” Ben replied, “restraint makes sexual stimulation of any kind, including a sensual spanking, more effective. More deeply arousing.”
“The ‘user’ being the man doing the spanking,” she said, barely controlling her impulse to eyeroll him.
“No, Avia,” he smiled a little, knowingly, holding her turquoise gaze. “I was speaking specifically, because of your assignment, of the woman. In part, the depth of her pleasure in being fondled or stroked, or spanked, increases in direct proportion to the effectiveness of her restraints.”
“In part,” she repeated. “What’s the other part?”
His smile broadened, but he scorched her with his gaze. “The ability of the man restraining her … touching her … spanking her … to give her what she wants, the way she wants, for as long as she wants.” His smile fled; his eyes darkened.
Her thighs tightened over the sudden heat between her legs. Damn it!

Adira August is a woman who believes “THE SUBMISSIVE FEMINIST” is not a contradiction in terms.
A long-time fighter for every woman’s right to be a person first, Adira writes sexy books about strong women who want equally strong men.
She’ll fight for every woman’s right to embrace her desire to find just the right man to: throw her against a wall, bend her over his lap or strap her down and work her into a frenzy. Or whatever else she wants.
Addi has carried a gun, chased down bad guys, climbed mountains, searched for dinosaurs and had rather a large number of lovers, though she isn’t giving away specifics. Except, maybe, in her writing.
“They’re our bodies. We get to know how they work. Decide what our limits are. We get to build muscles or glory in our fat, if that’s what we want.
“We get to put ourselves on the line, draw lines or erase them. We get to push and drive ourselves and we damned well get to submit, if that’s our choice. We get to want a man who has the confidence to take charge, cares what we need, and gives it to us.”
