HERO TO OBEY

 

 

Hero to Obey: Twenty-two Naughty Military Romance StoriesHero to Obey: Twenty-two Naughty Military Romance Stories by multiple authors

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Review Hero to Obey

I was raised in a military home with a Vietnam Vet, married my 82nd Airborne paratrooper Dom and raised our children under the devotion and love of country. I have two children who have had tours in Iraq and other exotically scary places. We experience PTSD, Children have married and divorced because of emotional conflicts harder to handle than the battles they fought on foreign soil. The publisher and authors are donating the proceeds to help these same people win the personal battles they fight on American soil. I am proud to have bought, read, and to review this collection.

Stormy Weather by Desiree Holt
Zane’s captain said he needed 30 days to “sort out his head” after his Afghanistan tour. He didn’t need anyone, not his BDSM lifestyle, his submissive who dumped him, not the human race and certainly not Dara whom he had to save from drowning in a heavy tropical storm. Dara is that thing that could give Zane direction again if he only could see it. I loved the struggle that Zane went through to find his way to living again. Contemporary BDSM, active duty-medical leave

SEAL of her Dreams by Paige Tyler
Kurt was a SEAL and when saving the day at Career day for his deployed buddy’s son. Fire play came from all sides. Oh, man did he need extraction. The teacher, Melissa, was a sexy cute thing that didn’t throw him a life ring. She didn’t even like him. He was in the shark tank alone and they sharks were circling. I loved this one because of its humanizing of a SEAL. It also was fun to watch him work for the love of one of America’s unsung heroes, a teacher. Contemporary, active duty

Their Runaway Bride by Vanessa Vale
Robert and Andrew have returned from serving in the military in a country (near Egypt) that commonly have two men to one woman so the woman is always cared for if one is killed. The world in the 1800’s is a wild place all over the world. Onboard a ship headed for America they meet other military of similar slant as well as a lovely young woman, Anne, who takes their eye. They want her. She appears in Robert’s room and within one day they have bedded, married, and taken possession of her. Her father had other plans and is furious but a good military man knows how to use his skills to advantage. Good, fun into to the series. Ménage, Historic, Prequel, ex-military.

Under His Command by Maddie Taylor
A novella in the L.A. branch of Club Decadence, this story takes us to Coronado –SEAL training, Commander Flynn and the simulator operator, Cassie. Cassie is in love with the Commander and his dominant ways, but she feels it is a hopeless love because he is the consummate gentleman and they have a great friendship going. I love we get both sides of the story instead of only getting into the head of one of our main characters. Contemporary, Active Duty,

Understanding the Enemy by Tabitha Black
This was is a fantasy/Scifi story of Blaze the man who must interrogate those Sandrine who would try to sabotage the hateful Saxo’s. Lena is caught trying to seal secrets for the militia. Blaze is expected to torture her and his settled on method is unique. Lena has something Blaze wants more than anything. I am not a fantasy reader but this I was able to read easily. Well written. Edgy, Dystopian, a little dark-HEA

Exfil by Bethany Burke
This story is set in the contemporary/future realm of war torn Syria. Military personnel are asked all the time to do what appears to the civilian to be the impossible. What if you were Delta force and were asked to go in and rescue an ex-lover you never forgot? And what if you found out a secret that could destroy the world and both of yours along with it, and then you were asked to do the unthinkable? Captain Michael Duncan is that man and Emily Becker that lover. My husband would like it. Well written. I could see this happening in my mind’s eye. Contemporary, Active military, edgy

Wrecked by Selena Kitt
Daniel was ex-Navy SEAL now living off the coast of Chili alone. He answers a faint mayday call to find overindulged heiress Darcy with some grand problems. And neither one knows how to communicate effectively verbally. Physically is another story. Hot sex, good emotional back and forth-Story stalls only momentarily. The ending is well played. Contemporary, ex-military, angst

Devil Dog by Lee Savino
Nice story of Cassandra, newly divorcee and Devil Dog Dane, medically discharged Marine. I enjoyed this story because it wasn’t just a story about some ex-military who was stuck in time and place. It was as I know them, trying to find a place in this world that they are now presented with. Dane was the absolute sweetest and Cassandra was disillusioned, more than Dane. Contemporary, Sweet, medically discharged, HEA.

Call Sign: Thunder by Livia Grant
This story was well written about “a miracle” with notorious one night stand Marine Pilot Zach’s and U.S. Senator’s daughter Allison. Zach was called to pilot a mission that went all wrong, or did it? Allison was kidnapped in Columbia. She was not the mission. This story had suspense and drama, angst and an HEA. Two worlds collide and the explosions are real and the ending leaves you feeling so good, you have to read this. The U.S. Marine Corps and U.S. Senators get out of the way for true love. Contemporary, Suspense HEA, active duty

A Hero in Disguise by Alta Hensley
Jessa is in a wild loop of craziness and then she is kidnapped to breed. Decker claims her. I was curious and confused at the beginning of this but I could see it was cleverly written when I finished the story for it all came together. Arian-like, Military ops, baby factory-like modern Hitlerism. Gotta read this. Rather dystopian in a real world setting. Hmm, just read it, it will all make sense after you do. Contemporary/dystopian? (oxymoronic, I know), active military, suspense, HEA

A Soldier to Cry On by Abbie Adams
Tony is on medical leave and as his memory comes back he finds he needs to complete the circle on a dying soldier in another bed says, “I’m sorry Frankie.” Thinking he needs to give the last words and find out who this Frankie is he finds her and things aren’t at all as he thinks they should be. Two people who lost parts of themselves find new parts in this sweet story about the casualties of war. Written in first person for both characters but uniquely done. Medical leave military, contemporary, sweet.

The SEAL’s Captive Bride by Sue Lyndon
This story is set in the not too distant future. Earth’s society has been flip upside down and new communities are forming. Self-sufficient, war torn, hyper-protected communities. There are renegades that destroy and pillage everything. Ally needs food, Rick is ex-SEAL that is now a protector of one of the coveted communities. What happens next is really sweet and heart-warming. Again, fantasy/dystopian isn’t what I normally pick up but glad I read this. Engaging characters, moments of suspenseful, fun read, Ex-military.

Her Captain’s Command by Isabella Kole
Story of lost love found between Cmdr Rogers and Lt. Cmdr Vandecamp. The six month shipboard is realistic and his responses to her strong capabilities is well done. I loved the dominance of Rogers and yet his ability to accept her professional abilities. Dom/sub nirvana. Navy, contemporary, easy, flowing read

In His Hands by Maggie Ryan
1943. War pen pals. Ration cards. Petticoats. I don’t read much in this time period but I loved this story between naïve Betsy and her inherited pen pal Jack. Jack believes in Domestic Discipline. Betsy is a good girl and when naughty girlfriend Jane offers her pen pal to Betsy, well, a love story begins. Realistic and heartwarming, this was true for so many men and women during this time in our history. I loved it. I felt so good at “the end”. Historic, War Bride, Domestic Discipline

Worth Fighting For by Zoe Blake
Connor needs sleep during his return from Afghanistan. The guy in the next apartment obviously needed to learn how to treat a woman because two were there tearing it up. Connor stepped into the commotion and met Sage in all her feisty glory. Then Sage gives Connor a bogus phone number and the game is on. The story goes on from there. They are a dynamic couple and I enjoyed this story completely. Fun, light hearted, Sweet. Contemporary, active military.

Enticement by Sierra Cartwright
Pierce is on weekend pass to help his mother’s event and Ella works at the country club and is friends with his sister. Ella is looking for a long term BDSM relationship. Pierce enjoys ‘playing’ but not committing to BDSM relationships. I loved how they worked together to meet the other’s needs even while he showed Ella what she could do. A good read. I think this is very likely happening today in some part of the country. Contemporary, active duty, BDSM, fun-loving

Aim for Pleasure by Yasmine Hyde
Kerrigan works for the commander but is getting out of the military to run her own business and this is her going away party. Stepping out for air, she meets Jaxon and it was a one night stand- standing up against the wall… OH man HOT. They were a steamy couple and I loved the interaction between the two. Fun, light, military was back story as with most, at little dominance, a lot of hot. Contemorary.

Passing Through by Alexa Day
Noah, ex Ranger, barback for Gigi bar owner. He working summer before going on to Florida and a fishing boat crew for a buddy. This one was different in where Gigi is the aggressor and the more dominant in bedroom. Well written. Characters are engaging. I am not as much into female domme as male dominants but story had plenty of sexual tension. Contemporary, ex military

With One Hand Behind My Back by Cerise Noble
This one I have seen in living color with variations with my military exposure and I loved it. It was so real. Drew and Irene fall in love. Drew is dominant and believes in Domestic Discipline and it does do something to Irene’s libido. Drew says it isn’t her choice and Irene eventually gives in but she is one strong woman. And that makes it more beautiful. But their moves, money issues, lack of jobs at new duty stations, deployment, and then when tragedy hits, what it will take to survive it and when it looks like they won’t. I cried because I KNOW THEM and so many others like them. Contemporary, Domestic Discipline, Active duty, War. Read this one!! All us military wives need to read this and nod in understanding. It raced a bit and would have loved full book.

Owned by the Marine by Renee Rose
Medically discharged Marine Sergeant Rob Gentry met, cute but not in his future plans if he had any, Kaitlyn, his next door neighbor. She made an unfortunate error in judgement and almost died. She might have if it weren’t for Rob. They explore some BDSM lite and domestic discipline, she helps him come back from the soul killing “survivor’s guilt” and he shows her that she can have a wonderful life with all she wanted. I loved this story. It was heartwarming and highlighted the “now I have been injured and can’t do what I was trained to do-what is left?” The horrible pain when ones coworkers of any walk of life are killed leaving a sole survivor.

Bound by the Captain by Kate Richards
One with the USCG. Finally. I was raised a Coastie’s kid, during Nixon and lived in Alaska. I enjoyed reading about Captain/Dr. Mark King and Russian beauty, Dr. Anya Vanikova in search of the Sea Serpent. She was in search of “the one” dom and he was a dom. Countries that distrusted each other. I loved it when the Captain’s head was in his “toy drawer”. Lots of sexual tension and D/s and edgy BDSM, suspense. Nixon era, Cold war, Active duty, D/s.

A Little Love by Maren Smith
Nolan and Tricia. Okay, I don’t laugh in books easily but I died laughing in the first scene. And it only got better from there. Nolan left the Army after 15 years and he needed to find a project to “lose himself in”. He bought a house, and found himself lost in two projects renovations and new relationships. I enjoyed descriptions in this story, so vivid. “hello darkness my old friend” oh, yeah. D/l and so sweet and cute. DD/ls, contemporary, ex-military and fun.

HisSubmissive COVER

Turn up the Air Conditioner!

Now, read this scorching excerpt!

 

“…What have I told you about arguing with me?”

Hillary stifled a sigh. They’d had this discussion a lot in the past two days, and she really ought to know better by now. She cast her eyes down.

“That it’s disrespectful. I’m sorry, sir,” she said meekly.

“Mm-hmm. Finish getting dressed,” he told her.

“I’m finished!” she replied. “Just need to grab my purse.” She tried to scoot past him into the hallway, but he wouldn’t move.

“That is what you’re wearing?” he growled, his eyes roving over her.

Hillary looked down at herself. She was wearing a navy blue sundress with spaghetti straps that crossed in the back, and a frilly, A-line skirt that hit her at mid-thigh. Paired with her flat silver sandals, it was perfectly appropriate for the unseasonably hot September day… Wasn’t it?

“Um… yes?” she ventured.

“Um… no,” he said firmly, crossing his arms over his chest. “That looks like the… what do you

call it? The thing you wear under the dress,” he told her. “It’s too fucking sexy. Put something else on.”

She frowned. “Matt, I don’t have anything else. This is the only dress I brought with me.”

“Are you arguing again?” he demanded.

“No! I’m just trying to explain,” she told him honestly. “I’ve worn this before, lots of times, and

She broke off when he took a step forward, crowding her against the wall.

“But I wasn’t your dominant before, Hillary,” he reminded her, his left hand coming up to cup her

cheek and hold her in place.

The way he said her name—her full name—in that deep, serious voice made her nipples tighten. She pressed her head and shoulders back against the wall.

“Yes, sir,” she breathed.

“Do you see how revealing this is? Hmm?” His right hand traced a line from her throat, across her collarbone, and down. Hillary swallowed.

“Do you see how fucking sexy you are?” he demanded.

God, what had gotten into him? Please don’t stop, she begged with her mind.

His eyes were focused on his index finger as it dipped just below the edge of her dress and traced a path across the swell of her breast.

“Do you see how just the slightest touch,” he whispered, his words fanning heat across her sensitive skin, “could make this happen?” He hooked his finger around one spaghetti strap and slid it down her shoulder. “Do you want this to happen, Hillary?”

Oh. Yes.

 Jane Henry

 Jane has been writing since her early teens, dabbling in short stories and poetry. When she married and began having children, her pen was laid to rest for several years, until the National Novel Writing Challenge (NaNoWriMo) in 2010 awakened in her the desire to write again. That year, she wrote her first novel, and has been writing ever since. In 2012, she became interested in the d/s lifestyle, and has discovered her love for writing romance with a d/s twist. With a houseful of children, she finds time to write in the early hours of the morning, squirreled away with a laptop, blanket, and cup of hot coffee. Years ago, she heard the wise advice, “Write the book you want to read,” and has taken it to heart. She sincerely hopes you also enjoy the books she likes to read.

 

Maisy Archer

  Maisy is an unabashed book nerd who has been in love with romance since reading her first Julie Garwood novel at the tender age of 12. After a decade as a technical writer, she finally made the leap into writing fiction several years ago and has never looked back. Like her other great loves – coffee, caramel, beach vacations, yoga pants, and her amazing family – her love of words has only continued to grow… in a manner inversely proportional to her love of exercise, house cleaning, and large social gatherings. She loves to hear from fellow romance lovers, and is always on the hunt for her next great read.

 This is a new duo and their books are just what you need to warm your heart and yearn for other parts warmed…

A dominant does not mean…

I thought I would just ramble a bit today. Tomorrow is Father’s Day and I wanted to say a few things about misconceptions. While each relationship is different there are somethings that are not always understood.

In my world, I don’t call my spouse my dom. He doesn’t need it and neither do I. We play at home, not a club or small group. We are intimate. In my world a dominant, my dominant, is the Head of Household (HOH). Period. For us it has always been a natural way of life and I don’t even think about it.It is easy and takes arguing away.

Honestly, it was just what we did without rules, guidelines, and a lot of plain trial and error. We aren’t patterning ourselves after any specific group. Some clever people call it THIS THING WE DO and that is what I have loved to call it ever since learning the phrase.

Here are some things I have learned in our marriage that has lasted over 35 years.

A dominant man does NOT mean:

  • Rough, man-handling in the bedroom unless his partner really asks, verbally, for it and even then, increase in small measured quantities
    • What we say when we are aroused can be easily misinterpreted if a man is not well versed in his partner’s needs, things could go awry quickly
    • On the flip side, if she has established what level of intensity in play that she/he likes, don’t frustrate them by not fulfilling that need unless it is part of the game

 

  • Making all the decisions both in the bedroom and outside of it.
    • Some dominants enjoy all the control in the bedroom but contrary to the most exciting book you have read, they do enjoy their partner initiating things sometimes and enjoy reciprocal affection initiated by their partner.
    • Make the decisions you can but confer when needed.

 

  • They are ON all the time. Many or even most dominants want a capable partner if they are together outside of play because making all the decisions just sucks the life out of anyone.
    • That being said, it is a huge red flag if you need to “clear” a normal daily task with your dominant. This is outside of play and okay if agreed upon but there are limits. Both should be comfortable where they are set.

 

  • They are perfect. Of course, they make mistakes. They make plenty and should know how to apologize and if there is something needed to correct the mistake. All done without shifting responsibility.
    • They also expect the same from you. If either of you have difficulty owning up to human error, may I suggest working on that.

 

  • They are mind readers.
    • You want something, need something, experienced something, tell him, talk to him, be available to him. He can grasp many things but your thoughts, while may be easy to guess at times, is just that, a guess unless you have told him.

 

  • They are self-sustaining. They are human and as such, are needy beings. We all need love, reinforcement, to be allowed vulnerabilities and life hurts us all sometimes.
    • Be the person you want him to be for you. While they often know what to do, they want to do it with you. And need you as much as you need them.

 

  • You are his door mat, his puppet, his computer animation.
    • You are his partner, someone he should be proud of and if you do not have pride in yourself, it is difficult for him to continually boost you up. If self-esteem is a big issue for you, find a counselor to help you gain that self-love. It works both ways.

 

  • You do all the work both physically and emotionally, while he drinks a beer and watches the game.
    • If he cares for you and what you have together, he will do his best to share the load. Lovingly.

 

  • He barges in, takes over, and runs every show. He can’t fix it all, save it all, orchestrate it all. All the time. Don’t expect it and don’t ask it of him.

 

  • It’s all about sex, because it isn’t. It is all about everything. The way he loves, cherishes and respects you as well as expects those same things from you as an expected way of life.

Publisher:    Blushing Books

Released:    June 5, 2016

Genre:    romance/erotica/BDSM

 

Blurb:

 How can two people who love each other as much as Jessica and Adam do find themselves in a bitter rut? An incident at work begins to change Jessica’s views towards discipline. Is it possible that being held accountable can build up a person? Jessica is intrigued that she might have found the solution she’s been searching for.

When looking for guidance about delivering a reasonable paddling she stumbles across a professional dominatrix and a chatroom of opinionated spankophiles. Can Ms. Margaret’s advice lead to a scorched bottom and a sweeter romance?

How will Adam balance his new found authority in his marriage with his role as a prosecutor of men who assault their wives? Together, their journey of discovery leads to a more profound commitment, and lovemaking that leaves Jessica breathless.

Excerpt:

With her bottom still bared, Adam stood her up and restated the new rules. “You will

behave or I will spank you until you are very sorry,” he said, looking straight into her eyes. She nodded. She had been through a gamut of emotions—she had felt insolent, resentful, angry, sorry, repentant and very, very loved. Right now she felt powerful. She smiled. She had done it.

 She felt like a boss.

 Jess was astonished at how exhausted she was. She’d smoothed her skirts down and had briefly considered asking Adam for her panties back. When he didn’t offer them she decided it best to not bring it up. Margaret gathered her into a warm embrace. They walked to Adam’s car hand in hand. Adam mentioned that the moon was full. She was sure there was a ‘mooning’ joke in there somewhere but she couldn’t quite find it.

 Sitting in the car was not easy. Jess now had no doubt that Margaret had known what she was talking about when she said that the pain of a paddling grew. The leather seats felt cool to her throbbing backside. She shifted around. There was no way to get comfortable, even on the heavily padded seat. She laid her forehead against the window and tried to gather her thoughts.

 “So, will you really do that to me again?”

 Adam reached for her hand, she had always admired what an adroit driver he was. With the hand not on the steering wheel, he squeezed hers and he firmly responded, “You better believe it, young lady. Your reign of terror is over. I love you and we deserve to be happy.”

 

 Susannah is so good at writing Domestic Discipline.

“I’m not obliged to obey you”

HEY, I HAVE AMELIA SMARTS HERE TO SHARE A LITTLE ABOUT HER NEW BOOK

Claimed by the Mountain Man

Times are hard in Montana in the mid-1800s, and when Nettie finds herself impoverished, desperate, and alone after the death of her husband, she flees the town of Helena to escape the clutches of the local saloon owner. But living off the land quickly proves much more difficult than she’d hoped, and after days without food she resorts to stealing from Jack Abrams, a gruff mountain man and trapper who lives a secluded, uncomplicated life in the woods.

Jack doesn’t take kindly to being stolen from and when he catches her red-handed, Nettie ends up lying naked over his knee for a long, hard spanking. To her surprise, however, after her punishment Jack offers her food and shelter in return for cooking, cleaning, and doing as she is told. But Nettie is determined to never rely on a man again, and with a belly full of food and renewed determination, she abandons him to take another shot at living in the woods on her own.

Jack knows the headstrong girl won’t survive without his help, especially when she chooses a grizzly’s winter cave as her shelter, and he can’t stand by and idly watch her demise. When his irritation with her foolish pride boils over, he decides it is time to show her how thoroughly a man can dominate a woman silly enough to venture into the woods alone. Jack’s stern chastisement and bold mastery of her body leave Nettie begging for more, but is she truly ready to give up her freedom to be claimed by the mountain man?

 Publisher’s Note: Claimed by the Mountain Man is an erotic romance novel that contains sexual scenes and spankings. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.

 claimed by the Mountain Man

Here is a taste…

Excerpt

Jack stood and walked to the sofa, where he sat while she attended to the dishes. He watched and waited for her to finish before he said, “Come here, Nettie.” He needed to talk some sense into her, and now was as good a time as any.

 She frowned and didn’t look like she wanted to obey, but she traipsed to him after a moment’s hesitation. He pointed to the spot next to him. She sat and self-consciously tugged at the hem of his shirt that she was wearing. Then she folded her hands in front of her on her lap and looked at them instead of at him, seeming to know that she wouldn’t like whatever he had to say.

 Jack rubbed a hand around the beard on his face. “I won’t allow you to go on living in that cave.” His words came out exactly how he hoped they wouldn’t, as an order. A strict upbringing, followed by six years in the military, meant orders were what he was used to, both giving and receiving, and he wasn’t sure how to get his point across to the woman any other way.

 She scowled at her folded hands. “You ain’t my husband or pa, Trapper Jack, and you don’t own that cave. I’m not obliged to obey you.”

 His jaw clenched. This wasn’t going to be an easy task, convincing her to listen to reason. He found her argument downright infuriating. “I know a thing or two about living in the woods,” he said, raising his voice a notch. “I can see you’re real good at some things, like baking, mending, and cleaning. You’re even all right at skinning a rabbit, but none of that will matter if you can’t catch your food and you don’t have proper shelter come winter.”

 She opened her mouth to protest, but he held a finger to her lips. They felt damp and soft, and he felt the sudden desire to kiss her stubborn mouth, if for no other reason than to prevent her from saying another foolish word. The fire in her eyes died when he touched her, and she gazed at him dolefully. He continued his lecture. “Don’t waste your breath saying you’re gonna shoot the grizzly. That’s a fool’s notion. I imagine you’re about as good at shooting as you are at trapping, and you can’t afford to make a mistake there. You miss the bear or only injure it, you’re dead.”

 About Amelia Smarts

#1 Amazon Bestseller in Historical Erotica and Erotic Westerns!

 I’m an author of romance novels featuring domestic discipline/spanking. Usually my stories involve a cowboy, and they always involve a man’s firm hand connecting with a woman’s naughty backside. It’s important to me that I tell a good story in addition to portraying hot sex and discipline scenes. I write complex, flawed heroes and heroines who struggle and succeed in their journey to love and happiness. If you’d like to talk books with me, feel free to drop me a note at amelia_smarts@yahoo.com. Happy reading!
