Author Spotlight - Red Phoenix with a contest

Today I would like to welcome Red Phoenix to the blog.  

How do you come up with such different stories? 

Readers have asked how I write such varied tales from ménage, BDSM, young love to paranormal. The answer is easy, my stories come to me like songs. I hear a whisper, it begins to formulate, then characters come to me and begin to speak. My job is simply to listen, incorporate my own experiences into the tale and type away. Although there are aspects of myself revealed in every story I write, the characters propel the story forward in ways I don’t expect. I decide the final destination, but they dictate how I get there.

Brie Pleases her New Master (After Graduation, #1)


Find out what happens after the elevator doors close… Brie and her new Master are now free to explore life as a D/s couple. Although Brie graduated from the Submissive Training Center top of her class, she soon finds she still has a lot to learn. A rival Dom cannot accept her choice of Master and will not let her go without a fight. Brie’s generous heart steers her in the wrong direction when the Wolf comes to call.

This first novelette of Brie’s ‘After Graduation’ series explores the lessons, love, and lust unleashed upon the newly collared sub.

Extended Description:

Brie is euphoric after choosing her Master. Now the two can freely explore their love for one another outside the walls of the Center. Master teaches her the meaning of true possession. He also opens up to Brie, sharing a painful aspect of his past. She is shocked to learn his secret, but is determined to love him through it. Unfortunately for Brie, things start to get complicated when Faelan reenters the picture.

* Future installments of the Brie ‘After Graduation’ series will answer questions about the characters you have grown to love. Find out what’s been happening with the other Doms at the Training Center, learn about Lea’s experience working there, and how Blonde Nemesis is faring after her betrayal. There is even a visit to Russia on the horizon...

(I have replaced the Dom's name with Master to protect those who have yet to read Brie Learns the Art of Submission. Although I highly recommend it, because this new series won't be near as fun if you aren't familiar with the characters.)

“Walk to the window.”
Brie rocked off her heels and stood up, floating on clouds as she made her way to the expansive window. She felt the weight of [Master’s] stare on her and trembled at the intensity of it. There was an acute sense of vulnerability in being naked in front of the huge window, especially with a similar high-rise just right of the building.
In a deep voice he commanded, “Spread your legs shoulder-width apart, put your hands on the window and lean forward so that your nipples touch the glass.”
She opened her legs and put her palms on the cold window, leaning slowly forward until her nipples made contact with the chilly glass. Brie gasped softly and waited for his next instruction, but he gave none. She watched [Master] through the reflection of the window as he stood and admired her while sipping his martini.
The wait, the anticipation, combined with his lustful scrutiny, made Brie exceedingly wet. She closed her eyes, chagrined when she felt a trickle of her excitement run down her leg. Brie was desperate for him, her nipples aching with need, stimulated by the pressure and temperature of the glass.
Her heart skipped a beat when she heard [Master] walk out of the room and the distinct sound of the martini glasses being placed on a granite counter. It begins…
“Don’t move or speak, but you are allowed to come,” he murmured as he drew close. Brie bit her lip when [Master] lightly traced her shoulder with his fingertips, her whole body concentrating solely on his touch. She continued to sneak peeks at him in the reflection, enjoying the erotic contrast of her being completely nude while he remained in his tux, minus the jacket.
[Master’s] hand trailed down her back and over the swell of her ass. Brie had to consciously stifle her cry when his demanding fingers pressed into her sex and he felt the extent of her need.
His grunt was low and passionate. “Your body betrays you. You stand quiet and demure, but inside you are a raging firestorm of desire.”
She struggled to keep quiet when he began playing with her pussy, already oversensitive from need of him. With his expert fingers, he quickly brought her to a swift orgasm.
“So soon?” [Master] chuckled lightly in her ear. Then he knelt down on the floor.
Brie about died when she felt his tongue on her still throbbing clit. She made a muffled squeak and closed her eyes tightly, trying to remain upright as he spread her outer lips with his fingers and took a long, drawn-out lick.
“I love the taste of Brie.”
He’s making a joke? She almost burst out in giggles but bit down on her lip hard enough to bring tears to her eyes.
Brie’s legs trembled as [Master] swirled his tongue over her clit, between her dripping inner lips, until he reached that sensitive area between her opening and her sphincter. Her inner muscles contracted powerfully. To have [Master’s] concentrate his oral attention so close to her ass felt enticingly forbidden. Unfortunately, the area was so sensitive that her knees buckled.
[Master] seemed to have anticipated it, because his hands cradled her buttocks as he gave Brie the support she needed to regain her stance. “No moving,” he admonished as she returned to the same spot. Brie gasped when he pressed his fingers onto her clit and rubbed in circles slowly, causing a delicious burn.
She was completely held under his spell, his willing and wanton plaything.
“Come,” he whispered hoarsely from between her legs.
Her body tensed, initially resisting the command. Soon, however, a cold chill settled on Brie, traveling through her body just before she exploded in a second release, far more powerful than the first. He licked her clit as it pulsed against his tongue.
With a will of iron, she stayed in place and only made small, whimpering gasps. As the last contraction reverberated through her small frame, [Master] growled lustfully, “Your ass calls to me.”

I am a happily married woman who believes (based on personal experience) that love conquers all. It is a running theme in my writing. One thing you will notice about my work, I'm all about variety. If a character beseeches me to write his/her story, I willingly give myself over no matter the genre or subject ~ as long as it includes hot, steamy sex. ;)

Thanks Red for visiting!


  1. I would call myself submissive cause I love to please people. It is easier for me to let others be in control but I could be a switch cause I do like to be in charge sometimes.

  2. I would call myself a submissive too.I like to please people and make them proud.But being a single mom of 5 boy's., I'm use to being in control. So maybe that's why I would make a good submissive so I could give up control.

  3. I'm a submissive at heart there is nothing better than taking care and serving the one you love.

  4. A submissive.. because I love to be told what to do and to please my master.. he is the only one for me, and he does try to be a dom.. but he is to sweet and tender.. him being a teacher as Kally knows he needs to be taught how to be a better Dom, so I may listen better.. heehee we will see

  5. I am a switch. I love giving orders and bring new ideas in some sexual and relationship things but it is a euphoric experience being bonded and flogged by a true and strong dominate male. I have been submitting more often now because I used to be full domme at one time.

  6. I honestly feel I have more of the Dominate although I wouldn't mind MAYBE letting my husband be Dominate once in awhile. But I think he prefer's me telling him to be rough with me.

  7. I think i may be submissive if my husband acted so far i have had a hard time keeping my mouth shut, but we are both learning.

  8. I found Red with the very first Brie book. It was free and so I decided to try it. Now it's sorta turned my whole world upside down. I love evry one of her books that I've read and its shown me a whole new way of thinking about things. Kally also holds a special place in my heart and on my nook. Love ya both lots.

    1. Sorry just seen the question. I would be submissive though i just figured it out this past year and not sure if hubby would consider.

  9. I'm submissive, but not 24/7. Private play time only. Starting to get more daring as both of our trust levels are increasing.

  10. I'm definitely submissive. I've always been so, but recently I've been exploring this side of me more. I've been married for 20+ years and have always asked permission for just about anything I do. I started reading BDSM books 3 or so years ago and now realize what I truly am. The past few years Hubby and I have been exploring my submissive side and his dominant side.


  11. Don't you find it interesting? Some people are in control in their daily lives and cannot give up control in the bedroom. Others are in control all the time, so they crave submission in the bedroom. I find that I am a cruel mistress as an author (as my subbies will attest), but I am a submissive at heart. Nothing turns me on more than being dominated by my man. Purr...

    1. Yes you are a cruel and loving Mistress. Your teasing takes as on the edge so many times. I believe you have a hidden dom inside you that enjoys to see as like that. ;)

      ~ Marla

    2. A hidden Dom you say? I could see possibly being a Domme to a woman, but I just can't take that role with a man. Just not the way I'm made.



  12. In the bedroom, I would totally consider myself submissive but in real life I'm a bit of a Dom. I seem to have a high pain tolerance, like to be held down and dominated, I even find myself at meetings wrapping my hands behind the back of the chair to feel more secure. Sadly though, I also married a submissive man but I love him. He knows my tastes run more towards BDSM, so for now we have plain old vanilla although he knows if given a chance, I'd go hard core!

  13. This book sounds fantastic. I wold love to win.

    For me, I really think I'd be more submissive in the bedroom. In real life, I am more of the domintate one. I give orders in my work life.

  14. I'm mainly submissive but have tendencies for switch. I love a man taking control. That's for the bedroom. Outside of the bedroom I'm a switch I think. There is time and place for both and I enjoy them both but feel more in my skin as a submissive.

    ~ Marla

  15. I want to thank all who have posted so far. I love your openness!

    Truth is, we can't make our desires a reality unless we are willing to voice them.


  16. i consider myself a switch and I have only been into BDSM a year. I too am married and like Kallypso says HEA take work. I like the ability to control as well as be controlled. It takes time and lots of trial and error to get what I need. Thank you for letting me be honest. Michelle

  17. oops here is michelle's email:

  18. hmmm in the bedroom I think i'm a sub...I couldn't be in a 24/7 Dom/sub relationship but would enjoy giving up control in the bedroom

  19. In the bedroom, I think I'm a sub. In the "real world" Im pretty outspoken, and don't like being told what to do by my guy. But I very much enjoy taking care of those I love esp my man. Doing anything that I think will please him, I never thought of myself as a sub, until I started reading some BDSM in the past year or so....I've always enjoyed it when the man takes control, his pleasure pleases me...even if I didn't get off, if he did I was happy..I always thought myself odd for this. Sadly I've never been with a man who truly is a Dom, but I'm hoping I will find one soon so I can explore and see what I do and do not like. But that would take a lot of trust.

  20. i am absolutely a submissive. i do well to please my Sir and keep a happy home for Him. it took me 20 years to figure it out. Since i have taken up my submissive side 24/7, O/our lives couldn't be better. i am even a better person at work.

  21. In the last few months I have discovered that I am a submissive. And I have Red Phoenix to thank for helping me realize that. I feel a kinship with Brie, in learning what I am. My husband and I are new to this, but we're having fun learning together. I can't discribe the feeling I get when I give myself to my Sir.

  22. Very sexy, hot , yeh very,

  23. Thanks for sharing.. Brie's story seems like it'll be ...

    I found out that I am a switch, I can go either way (thanks to the classes I have been taking)


  24. I'm a switch. I enjoy being dominated, but there are times that I want to dominate my partner.

    Thanks for contest. Ridgetb AT yahoo Dot com

  25. I think I'd be a switch. I like pleasing certain people, but not everyone. It's nice to give up control and be dominated. And then there are times that I want to be the one doing the dominating. I want to feel that power exchange and have someone please me.

  26. I am a switch. Behind closed doors I am all sub. During the day the Dom comes out to keep the kiddies in line.

  27. I have to say I am a submissive because I always take care of other people's needs before my own and want to please others. Most of all I like a man who takes control in the bedroom because I find it so sexy and hot!

    Thanks for the giveaway!



  28. I think I fall to the more sub side of the scale, DH isn't very Dom though so its all more theoretical at this point LOL! Carin

  29. I classify myself as a switch. I have both passive and aggressive moments, i like to please my partner but i don't care to be told what to do or how to act. Thanks for the giveaway!

  30. I would go with Submissive. I am in a vanilla relationship, with a husband who is definitely no dom. But that's okay he takes such good care of my girls and I.

  31. I'm not in the contest, of course, but felt like playing along. Hmmm. I'm definitely a submissive in the bedroom and a Domme in all other aspects of my life especially with my books. :)

    Thanks so much for stopping by, Red. Reading your intro and bio I felt they could have been my own words (except for the ending; I can't even tell my characters where to go or they balk). No wonder our readers love both our books and characters so much!

    Just keep writing!


  32. Red, Love your Brie series. Can't wait to read the rest of her story.

    I think I'd be a switch. I like pleasing my husband, but I like to be in control a little too. I really think he likes it as well.

  33. maybe submissive
