ebook, 110 pages
Heat Level: Erotic M/F, M/F/M
Contemporary Romance with BDSM elements

Published November 16th 2011 by Ellora's Cave


Shy and quirky Violet Bishop has finally found the perfect way to meet a man who could fulfill her hidden submissive desires, something that she has never dared to ask her conservative and uptight ex-boyfriends to do. She joins an on-line matchmaking site that puts couples together based on the books that they love, in this case the BDSM erotica that lines her bookshelves.


Ann Mayburn never fails to make me reach for my B.O.B. (Battery Operated Boyfriend) while I'm reading her books. Blushing Violet had me blushing in some places and if I where single it would have me running to my computer to sign up for an online dating service. Especially if I would be as lucky as Violet and end up with not one but two hot doms like Carlos and Morgan.

This hot novella is not just about the slap and tickle. I found myself caring about the characters and hoping for them to have their HEA. Before I started reading BDSM I thought that people that lived that lifestyle were freaks but the way that Mayburn shapes her characters and worlds it makes me think differently. Not that I'm running out to get my own things to setup a playroom but I can see how the D/S relationship is really built on trust that can lead to love like Violet's story with Carlos and Morgan.

If you have never read anything in the BDSM genre and want to try it out, Blushing Violet is a safe, lite BDSM read with funny and lovable characters. Visit Ann's website to read chapter one.

  1. Wow! That's a cover!LOL..What do you mean you are not going to set up a playroom???
    I never read anything like this, I'm pretty open minded, but is just that it's never been my cup of tea, but you are right, when the plot and characters are well written, you can't help but to get involved in the story.
