Werewolves, Panthers, Ménages and BDSM all in the one book. Why not?
I’ve always had a taste for erotic romance. Likely I was the only child in middle school who’d read “Forever Amber”, “Sons and Lovers”, and “The Story of O”.
I was the kid who, when we visited with friends, would sit in a corner reading the family’s books, while all the other kids ran around wrecking the house. I read anything: comics, children’s books, and a lot of stuff a kid shouldn’t know about. I just loved to read.
I guess it was inevitable that I’d try to write a book of my own. My first book was about best friends Jennifer and Genevieve, and was written in the back of a school notebook. I can’t remember much about it now, but likely it was just as well it was thrown out with all my other school books at the end of the school year.
More recently I’ve enjoyed reading about shape-shifters, ménages and BDSM. One day someone said to me, “Why don’t you put them all in the one book.” That was an enticing concept. I hadn’t read an erotic romance with all those elements in it. So I did, and the “Unchained Love” series was born.
It started off as a very simple concept. A man, hiding the fact he was a werewolf shape-shifter, in love with a woman and both of them emotionally tied to another man. The werewolf was a Dom. The woman and other man both subs. But where would they live? Where could such a group of people practice their ménage love and taste for BDSM freely? Gradually Carnal Connections, a BDSM community came into being.
The Alpha of a panther pack demanded his woman. She was determined to love both him and a human. The panther refused to share. The story, and the world, kept growing. More werewolves. More panthers. More people from the BDSM community clamored for their story to be told.
“The Dom Unleashes His Wolf” is Tor’s story. When Gaynor Lee and Cameron Wilson discover their Dom is a wolf shape-shifter, their relationship is suddenly turned on its head. Everything has to change. For protection, they consider moving into a BDSM community, Carnal Connections, but then rogue panthers try to steal Gaynor’s friend Ramona. Is nowhere safe to live?
And how will they adjust to life in a BDSM community? They’ve always practiced a moderate form of BDSM, nothing too hard-core. Not to mention that Tor Martin is a wolf and most of the other shape-shifters there are panthers. Can cats and dogs cooperate, especially when some of them are Doms?
Meanwhile, Carnal Connections opens their eyes and minds to all sorts of sexual possibilities. BDSM has always been immensely freeing and fulfilling for all of them, but it gets even better. Until Tor wants Gaynor and Cameron to commit to him.

Next comes Ramona’s book. “The Dom Protects His Puma”. Omar Brown, a Dom and a panther, knows Ramona Davis, a puma, is his. But she refuses to accept him unless he includes Javier Miller as well. Omar is worried sick about the danger from the rogue panthers, and Javier is only a human, so he finally agrees to them being a ménage, but just for sex.
Against a background of self-defense from the rogue panther attacks, and Omar becoming the pack Alpha because Sam seems unable to focus on anything except protecting his pure-blood panther daughter Leticia, Omar introduces Ramona to BDSM, the lifestyle Javier also follows, and which they all find fulfilling.
Omar wants Ramona as his and his alone, preferably wearing his collar. Javier wants Ramona and is prepared to share her with Omar, as long as he gets her, too. Ramona wants them both, and her job at the movie studio. And the rogue panthers want pure-blood cat shifters—like Ramona, for instance.
Book three of the “Unchained Love series is from the BDSM community, Jubilee’s story. “The Dom Collars His Sub”.
Jubilee Thompson loves Carey Williams with every cell of her body. Her only aim in life is to serve him. Her only wish is that he would give her a collar and make her truly his.
Larry Jones, the business manager at Carnal Connections, is a switch, but his day-to-day work requires him always to act the Dom, so he decides to have some playtime as a sub.
Larry joins Carey and Jubilee in the dungeon, purely as a break to worrying about a pack of rogue panthers that want to steal the unmated women shape-shifters, and Leticia’s father, Sam, who seems to have gone crazy with worry that Leticia will be kidnapped.
As they improve the security of the property and meet in the dungeon, they get to know each other better.
Carey says it’s time for Larry to decide what he wants. Is there hope for a genuine relationship between the three of them?

Story excerpt from “The Dom Tests her Serenity”
Serena leaned against the still-shaking door and fought hard not to cry. Within the next five minutes the entire community would know she’d broken up with Josh and Pete. She’d thought she loved them both, had even considered they’d maybe mate one day, and to have Josh so casually say, “But we never wear a condom when we fuck and we’re not going to start wearing one now” had killed all her hopes and expectations stone dead.
She wasn’t stupid. She knew that men their age, late twenties, wouldn’t be virgins. But bloody hell, they’d been dating her for months. Couldn’t they keep their pricks in their pants for a few months? Why did they think they had a left hand, for fuck’s sake?
“Dad would be disappointed in you, Serena.” The voice spoke through the door, the mouth almost exactly at her ear level. Her twin, Verity.
“You used bloody six times in the one sentence.”
Serena quickly thought back to what she’d said, What do you bloody mean you never bloody wear a bloody condom? How many bloody women have you bloody slept with already? I thought you bloody cared about me?
“It was two—no, three—sentences, and at least I didn’t say fuck or shit like anyone else would have.”
“Are you going to open the door and let me in?”
Serena sighed, took a deep breath, stood behind the door where no one could see her wearing only her underwear, and opened it a mere inch. Her sister’s fingers appeared in the gap, pushing the door wider, as Verity slid through the smallest possible space, leaving Serena hidden behind the solid wood.
“There’s a hell of a mess in the hallway,” Verity said conversationally.
“Josh and Pete can clean it up. I’m not.” Serena sagged onto the floor and rested her head on her knees. Instantly Verity was beside her, putting an arm around her shoulder as she had done so often when they were children.
Serena couldn’t stop the tears anymore. “I love them and they’ve been fucking other women, or one other woman, without using protection, all along. They could be about to become fathers, or have caught diseases, or anything. It’s such incredibly selfish and stupid behavior. It disrespects everyone and I never thought they’d be like that. A true Dom always cares properly for his sub. He doesn’t risk her health and happiness by acting in a selfish immature way. ”
Verity held her tighter. “That sucks. But if they’ve been fucking a whole bunch of different women, maybe that’s because it was just sex and they really do love you.”
“I’d like to cut their fucking balls off,” said Serena, looking up at Verity.
“But then you couldn’t fuck them if you ever change your mind. Why not just chain them in one of the dungeons for a week or two?”
“Yes. Only water. Just enough so they don’t get ill.”
“Oh, I like that plan.”
“See, you’re feeling better already. Now, tell me what happened,” ordered Verity.
“They took me out to dinner, which they’ve done a few times. But tonight they asked to come into my room afterward, and I thought we were finally going to fuck. You know how much I love them, even though I haven’t said anything to anyone else. Or I thought I loved them. Likely it was just my imagination, but I thought we were exclusive, a unit. I thought one day we’d get mated. I thought they cared about me.”
“We were kissing and—” Serena blushed. She wasn’t sure how innocent Verity was nowadays, so maybe it would be better not to go into too much detail. She rather thought her twin wasn’t a virgin anymore, but still… “And that’s when Josh said they never wore condoms and weren’t going to start wearing one for me. ”
She turned to Verity and said what had made her almost as mad as the thought of them having another woman in their lives. “I can’t bear the thought they were two-timing me and loving another woman. Making both of us unhappy. But even if they were just sleeping around, being a panther doesn’t stop them getting a human woman pregnant, and there’s still the possibility of them getting some sexually transmitted disease.”
Verity gave Serena another hug then moved slightly forward so they were more face to face. “You feel they betrayed your trust.”
“They did betray my trust. And who knows if their actions will cause all sorts of problems in the future, like Sam’s abandonment of his son David did.”
Serena leaned back against the door. Outside she could hear people moving around and the whirr of a vacuum cleaner in action. Suddenly she giggled. “Do you think they’ll have to pay for the smashed crockery and vase?”
“It would serve them right.” Verity laughed.
