It’s my wonderful friend and fellow Brit Babe Tabitha Rayne!!! A bad girl if ever I met one…but oh so lovely with it….

Over to you sweetie…

Hi there and thank you to the amazing ‘ETO nominated’ Ms Kay for letting me come on over and chat about my new release, Taking Flight, the prequel to A Clockwork Butterfly.

So what makes a bad girl? I know if you’ve read Kay’s books, you probably already know the answer to who makes up stories about bad girls 😉

Well I’m asking this because a there’s character called The Wasp in my first book, A Clockwork Butterfly who is well and truly a bad girl. Actually, she’s a dominatrix, employed by a prison to ‘rehabilitate’ inmates. When I was writing her character in that book, I always felt she had an interesting back story as to why she was in that situation, seemingly cold hearted and uncaring of her subjects.



Taking Flight, set 8 years previously, is her story. It shows the transformation from submissive to Domme and the reasons behind it. I loved writing this metamorphosis. Throwing in circumstances and obstacles which toughen her up and change the way she interacts with people and the way she thinks about herself. I’m interested to see whether readers think she is more empowered by who or what she becomes or hindered. It was nice getting to know a character who I know many people weren’t too fond of in the first book. Hopefully, her story will make you love her too.

Thanks Kay – here’s a sexy snippet and some blurby stuff. This is at a point in the book where Deborah is inspecting a room she has been gifted…

Deborah continued her study of the area casually swiping dust from the burnished furniture. Beautiful. Unable to resist, she carefully grasped the little brass handles on a drawer and pulled. It caught on the stiff runners and Deborah had to jiggle it from left to right until it finally released and opened. She managed to trap the giggle of delight in her throat just before it was audible to the governor. Reaching in, Deborah ran her fingertips over the stout handle and drilled out flat of a paddle. My, my, she thought, and slid her grip underneath it, lifting it carefully out. It was a real quality piece. Solid mahogany with carefully beveled edges—the spanking end had been worn to a perfect smoothness through what must have been years of usage. She smiled, and turned, keeping the instrument behind her back. A wicked feeling—the kind that was only induced by the governor’s presence, it seemed—washed over her and made her stand a little taller on her heels.

The governor was standing in the middle of the room, staring. Electricity crackled in the motes between them and Deborah licked her lips.

“So this is where I am to punish bad women.”

“Yes.” The governor stood still, her breathing the only thing that gave away her fear or excitement or both. It turned Deborah on. To know that this woman wanted to be dominated made her grit her teeth with aching arousal.

“Well, what are we waiting for?” she hissed, and watched, stunned, as the governor’s posture changed to that of meek obedience. “If you are not going to come here, I will come and get you.”

I hope that makes you want to read the rest of Deborah’s story 😀 here’s the blurb and info:

Taking Flight by Tabitha Rayne The prequel to A Clockwork Butterfly Genre(s): Futuristic Erotic Romance Price: $4.99

Lovers on the run in search of a bond that transcends all else.

Dr. Deborah Regan is a scientist working on a cure to the poison that’s killing the male population and destroying the natural world. But when she makes a breakthrough in her research, it becomes clear that the authorities have no intention of finding a cure, and now that she’s getting closer to an answer, she’s a threat to them—a threat they need to deal with quickly.

Deborah and her partner, Marcus, flee to the forest where they meet another couple on the run. Birch and Hazel show them how to survive in the wild and teach them the theory of ultimate unity. They believe that by finding sexual nirvana at the point of intense orgasm, they will break through the barriers of physicality and become one.

It soon becomes apparent that Deborah has an aptitude for falling into this trance-like state, and she manages to bring Marcus on her journey. Their spirits can indeed join together at the meeting point, suspended in time and space while they climax.

When Birch and Hazel become jealous of the young couple’s ease at reaching ultimate unity—something they’ve unsuccessfully tried to do for years—they betray Deborah and Marcus to the authorities. As they are separated, Marcus begs Deborah to continue to search for the ultimate sexual unity, because he’s convinced that no matter where they are, this connection will allow them to meet again on a spiritual plane.

Will this metaphysical union be enough for a couple so deeply in love?
