Unrestrained Blog Tour and Contest

blog tour

Note: This book was previously titled Letting Go; updated 6/2013.

Athena is a widow and an accomplished businesswoman. She’s the type of person who exceeds expectations in business, family–life in general. Since the death of her husband, she’s had a desire to explore submissive cravings she’s had for some time. The hitch is, Athena is known as a Mistress, because that’s the role she played to her husband.

Though she knew her submissive nature was strong enough to serve her husband as a Domme, because that’s what he needed, it’s when she meets Dale, a retired Navy SEAL, that she attempts to discover what her own submissive desires are. But letting go of that control is harder than she expected.

Fortunately, Dale is an accomplished Master who can help her accept the true nature of her submission, rather than how she’s tailored it to meet the expectations of others. But in the course of learning what letting go means, both of them will learn a bit more about the nature of love between Dominant and submissive, and how it defies all categories.

  1. Sarah

    Thanks for the chance to win! I tend to be more submissive in the bedroom, but I have my days. It all depends on my mood and as a hormonal female I’m moody. :) mrwhiskas24@yahoo.com

  2. Vanessa N.

    I believe I’m more submissive in the bedroom.


  3. I find the sub dom roles very interesting.

  4. KittyKelly, thanks for posting the info on Unrestrained! It’s lovely to visit your place. :> Those of you following the blog tour already know this, but for those who are new, for a limited time, the FIRST THREE CHAPTERS are available as a PDF download on the book page of my website. Just go to http://www.storywitch.com/book-nst-lg and look to the right of the cover, under the RT Top Pick designation. Enjoy!

    I’ll be stopping by throughout the day to read your answers to the question, so if anyone has any questions or comments for me about anything, I’ll be happy to answer. Otherwise, I hope you all enjoy Dale and Athena!

  5. Oh, and I guess I could answer the question, too. I’m a submissive and have been one pretty much…forever. But a lot of people have the wrong conceptions about what that means. For instance, I’m an obsessive compulsive, high-powered, goal-driven workaholic who can come off as very assertive. But I’m also deeply service-oriented, like my heroine Athena, and that can be mistaken quite often for a Dominant personality. So needless to say, I connected with her strongly during the story (even though she had a lot of wonderful qualities I can only aspire to reach – laugher).

    • Joey I am exactly the same. Anyone can tell you about my OCD and *clears throat* assertiveness. lol But in the bedroom I want to be able to just let it all go and feel. That’s why I love BDSM based books so much. :)

      Thank you so much for coming to my blog! I am so excited to have you!!

      • Kelly, I’m so happy to be here. And I think that’s the appeal for many women. We have so much going on all the time, it’s difficult to “switch gears” and relax enough to truly enjoy intimacy with a lover. Submissive play is a wonderful way to achieve that gear shift. And even if we don’t have a lover with whom to do that, BDSM romance gives us a similar outlet.

        • Kitty, good heavens, apparently I was having some kind of out-of-body football coach impersonation experience. Have no idea why I called you by your last name instead of Kitty. My apologies for that! Blog tours can make the brain fuzzy. :>

  6. Actually I’m a switch. I know, right? My husband likes it when I take over but then there are days were out of the blue…BAM! He takes the reins.


  7. Christi

    Definitely more submissive. I always have to have it “all together” in real life, it’s good to be able to give up the control sometimes :)

    • Christi, see that comment exchange between KK and me above – it makes perfect sense. Oddly enough, I was just talking to my brother about that very thing this week, about how we’ve crafted a society where now women feel like they’re supposed to handle everything – there seems to be no place to put down the load and take a breather.

  8. OMG. Joey W. Hill. I need a moment.

    Make that two.

    I am a switch. Sometimes I need to be in charge, and others I want Hubby to take charge. I like the balance, since I my professional persona is “the fixer.”

    I would love to know if there is a genre you would either really want to write a book in, or one you would avoid, like the plague, Joey.

    • Lol…not sure if I rate that reaction, given I’m stretched out on a recliner in green, brown and white pajama bottoms with monkey faces printed on them and a Big Dog oversized sweatshirt, but it’s very appreciated! Thank you, Michelle. And I really think being a switch offers a lot of benefits to both members of the couple. Being a Dom can be pleasurable, but it also involves a lot of responsibility, and most of us like the opportunity to “let go” every once in awhile.

      Hmm…not sure there’s a genre I’d avoid like the plague. I know I’ve never yet been inspired to write a story that doesn’t have a love story at the core of it. The journey of falling and staying in love, sharing a love through a lifetime, is the only story that seems to grab my attention. As far as the other part of your question, I admit, there’s a story that’s been teasing the back of my mind for a few years – it’s a mainstream women’s fiction kind of piece, not hugely uplifting, no HEA, more of a deep exploration of the human experience. The kind of thing that usually ends up lauded as the most amazing book EVER by literary critics, mainly because it’s so dark, depressing and dysfunctional a reader wants to cut their wrists after reading it. Lol – therefore I’ve kept it at the back of my mind. So far. ;>

      Thanks for coming to see me today!

    More on the submission side.

  10. Jane Thompson

    I like to switch also it keeps things interesting.

  11. Pyper541

    Excellent question, I think it depends on the person I’m with but I guess I’m usually more submissive. I don’t mind taking control every now and again though.

    • We have a good variety here. It’s funny – in talking to different clubs across the country, at most, submissives always outnumber Doms (no surprise), but whether the Doms are more male or female can vary. I’ve talked to one lady who was the only female Dominant at her club, and another where they have a surfeit of Dommes. Just goes to show, there’s no categorizing it by gender; seems to be a very individual choice, based on desires/experience and, as Pyper pointed out, sometimes determined by what the person you’re with inspires (smile). It’s one of the many reasons I love writing this genre – it doesn’t fit a formula, each relationship as unique as the people in it.

  12. Dominant, definitely.


  13. I’m definitely more submissive in the bedroom but outside I’m very assertive and take charge. And maybe a bit outspoken. lol

    • SheriV, a lot of submissives in the bedroom seem to have those kinds of traits. I think we need the break from holding the reins! :>

  14. Sue Sattler

    I prefer to be submissive in the bedroom, I’m the take charge person everywhere else and it’s fun just to let go in the bedroom or wherever we may be.


  15. meingee

    I think that I am more inclined to be submissive but have been told that others see me as dominant.


    • Meingee, see my earlier comments, but I get that a lot too. Folks are often surprised to find out I’m a submissive, but many female submissives are high powered “daily life” women. Of course, if we think about the stereotype of the male CEO who wants to be tied up and spanked, the truth lies there. When you have to stay in control of SO much, having a safe time/place to surrender and feel out of control is actually a pleasure. :>

  16. Julianne

    I think I’m more submissive. Although there are times when I would like to tie him up and have my wicked way with him while he can’t stop me.

  17. Rana Adams

    Thank you so much for sharing and I cannot wait to read Unrestrained!! I would say the hubby and I trade off, but when it comes down to it I am the DOMINANT one! He loves me taking charge and I love it to! I’m very verbal and demanding! Imagine that!


    • Chuckle – sounds like a perfect match!! I love hearing about the different types of pairings, especially when it sounds like such a complementary situation. :> Hope you like Dale and Athena.

    Defo a sub. :-)
