Red Phoenix’s Cherry Poppin’ Blog Tour!

Book trailer for Brie Learns the Art of Submission created by fan, Reba McCuaig

First, I want to thank Kallypso for letting me post on her blog again. Another huge thanks for donating one of her books for my blog tour! As you (her avid fans) already know, Kally is a very kind person. I sing her praises for all the encouragement she has given me personally as a fellow Indie. Truly, she is a champion among authors.

The Humble Beginnings of Brie:  
I woke up early one morning, just before dawn… I was feeling a little randy and started playing out a scenario in my mind. I am a young woman who has been invited to join the Submissive Training School. I would be partnered with only the most experienced Doms who specialized in skills I adore. 
The catch, I need to face my fears and am put through some extreme challenges to weed out the unworthy…
I wrote that little fantasy, calling it Brie’s First Day of Submissive Training, and put it up free on Smashwords. A few of my author friends read it and told me I had something special. I thought they were just being nice. However, I got several responses from readers begging me to continue Brie’s story. At that point I had no idea what Brie would become.

Join Brianna Bennett as she is introduced to the erotic world of submission...

Brie’s life changes the day Sir comes to her tiny tobacco shop. His invitation to the Submissive Training Center is about to rock this young woman’s world. The renowned school is famous for its elite submissive instruction. She has no idea what will be asked of her or the boundaries that will be pushed. One thing is certain: Brie is about to learn more about herself in six weeks than she has over the previous twenty-two years.

From formal classes, hands-on practicums and weekly auctions, Brie will confront her deepest fears and desires. In the process, she will also forge lifelong friendships with fellow submissives and fall for several of the Center’s skilled Doms.

As graduation day approaches things begin to unravel, forcing Brie to make an unexpected choice of Master. Which Dom will ultimately earn her devotion and capture Brie’s courageous heart?

Adult Material (18+)

Warning: This book contains sexually explicit content and scenes that some readers may find objectionable.

Warrior Fantasy (Brie Lives Her Fantasy)

His thrusts were strong and demanding. She had to remind herself to relax in order to take his entirety. She groaned as his speed and depth increased. He grabbed handfuls of her hair, grunting in his own pleasure while his tight pelvic muscles delivered repeated thrusts.

She could feel the burn on her back as they slowly inched across the carpet. It added to the brutish feel of their coupling. She wrapped her legs around his waist and cried out so the whole house could hear. “Rytsar, you’re too big!” she screamed loudly, adding, “But I like it, oh, yes…! You make it hurt so good.” Even though she knew he couldn’t understand, she suspected some of his friends spoke English and it pleased her to promote his manliness to the crowd in the other room.

He grasped her face in his hands and kissed her deeply while he consumed her with his body. The ridge of his shaft rubbed that area deep inside that made her legs quiver uncontrollably. She purred into his mouth as he brought her to the edge, but then he stopped. Rytsar pulled out, chuckling wickedly under his breath.

He turned Brie onto her stomach and grunted out a command she assumed meant ‘stay’. She lay on the carpet, breathless and needy. He came back to her less than a minute later and lay on top of her body with his rigid member between her butt cheeks. He lifted her pelvis up with one hand and pressed his lubricated cock against her ass.

Chocolate (Brie Surrenders to His Will)

Her nipples hardened as she felt his naked skin pressing against her, his firm cock tucked between her ass cheeks. Then she felt warm liquid down her front, and the scent of milk chocolate filled her nostrils. Her eyes popped open. She looked down and watched his chocolate-covered hands make dark trails over her white skin.

“Keep dancing,” Faelan murmured.

They moved in sync with the music as he covered her chest in warm chocolate. He left for a second and then returned, his hands dripping with more of the sweet ambrosia. She put her hands over his and followed them as they trailed down her stomach and then moved to her waist, grabbing her aggressively. She laid her head back against his shoulder, giving in to the warm sensation of his chocolate caress.
He panted in her ear like an animal. Then she felt his masculine hand grasp her throat, holding her possessively. She was overcome by the gesture, loving the submissive emotion it provoked. “Release your animal, blossom,” he growled. He then pushed two fingers into her mouth and she started sucking them as they continued to grind to the music.
When the beat slowed, Faelan turned her around and pushed Brie to her knees, then joined her on the floor. He cupped her breasts in his hands and squeezed them together before licking and biting her chocolate flesh.

Her First DP (Brie on Display)

“Lay your head on my chest,” he ordered huskily.

With his cock still lodged inside her, Brie laid her cheek against Baron’s muscular frame. He wrapped his arms around her possessively and held her there. She could hear his heart beating loud and clear, bringing a sense of peace to her neediness.

Then she felt his touch…

Brie gasped when he ran his hand over the curve of her ass. The trail of tingling sensations left in the wake of his hand left her with no doubt who it was. She whispered, “Sir…”

“Yes, Brie.”

Her whole body became an electrical current, making it almost impossible to breathe.

“You will be taking both of us at the same time,” he said smoothly, as his hand continued to leave a trail of fire on her skin.

“Yes, Sir.” She licked her lips, not quite believing what was happening. She had been whipped, spanked, and even fucked by a colossal cock, but never by two men at once.

The idea of taking Sir with Baron still deep inside her was frighteningly erotic and it made her gush with wetness. “She’s ready, Thane,” she heard Baron say beneath her.

Sir confidently replied, “I know she is. I can tell she’s hungry for it.”

Brie heard the slippery sound of lube and imagined Sir coating his princely cock with his masculine hand. Brie whimpered softly into Baron’s chest.

“Relax, kitten.” Baron chuckled lightly. “You are about to please your two favorite Doms. A submissive’s dream.”

I googled it, Sir (Brie Practices Her Oral Skills)

Step four—use your tongue to build the tension.

Brie started to concentrate on the glans, using a horizontal fluttering of her tongue as she stroked her Domme inside. She switched it up by tilting her head to one side and then the other. When her tongue got tired, she laid it flat on the clit and let Mistress grind against it. Brie remembered reading that two fingers were better than one, so she slipped another finger in to thoroughly caress the G-spot.

Mistress moaned. Not a quiet, controlled moan. No, this was the moan of a woman coming close to the edge. Brie pressed her mouth against her Domme’s clit and licked with a steady, sensual pace as she used her other hand to caress the soft skin just under the vagina.

Step five—stimulate other sensitive areas to bring her over the edge.

The moans grew louder and Mistress shifted in the chair. Brie remembered how possessed she’d felt when both Sir and Rytsar had taken her anally. With confidence she hadn’t had until that moment, Brie moved her finger down to Mistress’ anus and teased the rim. When the timing felt right, she inserted her finger into the tight hole.

Mistress cried out and started orgasming on Brie’s tongue. It was exciting for Brie to experience success with such a difficult partner. She continued to lick lightly until she felt Mistress’ hand on her head. She pulled away and looked to the floor, very pleased with herself but trying not to show it.

“What the hell was that?” Ms. Clark asked hoarsely.

“Miss Bennett,” Sir called from the panel.

Brie stood up and wiped her mouth. “Sir?”

“Can you explain how a supposed novice employs advanced cunnilingus techniques?”

She looked up at him and said simply, “I googled it, Sir.”

All three men broke out in laughter. She blushed and looked down at the stage floor.

Author Spotlight ~ Peyton Elizabeth

Peyton Elizabeth

The First Order [Safeword LLC 1]

Becca Schuler has always fantasized about bondage, but does that really make her depraved? According to an ex-boyfriend, it does.
After losing her job, and with no way to pay her rent, Becca hits a local bar to drown her sorrows. The last thing she expects is to meet a mysterious woman who assures that she can make Becca’s dream a reality. Is there really a company called Safeword LLC that places submissive women with dominant men per their preferences on a simple application?
Knowing she has nothing to lose, Becca fills out the form on Her placement lands her in the sensual and strict hands of Lane and Ross Ellison, who train her to be their ideal submissive. But when Becca’s fear of not being perfect weaves its way into their lives, she sets out to be just that and unknowingly risks losing it all.


Now for a quick interview with Peyton herself. Thank you Peyton for joining us today. 

Do you have a specific writing style?  

Yes, I would say I do.  I don’t plot.  I start from the first word and go straight through until I write “The End”.  I’m very methodical in when my characters should have a voice and when they shouldn’t.

How did you come up with the title?

A lot of times, I already have a title based on the heroine before I even start writing.  For those times that I don’t, it will come to me the more I get to know her.

Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?

Since all of my books end with an HEA, I hope that readers take with them that no matter what obstacles may stand in their way, things work out in the end.

How do you come up with such Alpha male characters?

Since I write ménage, one of the males will usually be very Alpha, whereas the other will be a more tender.  That’s not to say my Alpha male won’t have an affectionate side, just that it’s harder for him to show it.  The Alpha male is easy to imagine since my future husband was in the Marines for twenty-three years!

Do you have any writing rituals that you do while writing?

I have to have my coffee to start me off!

What types of books do you enjoy reading in your free time or what do you like to do with your free time?

I’m an avid reader.  I like a variety of genres, but of course my favorite is erotic romance.

Favorite type of music to have playing while writing?

I rarely listen to music while I write, as it tends to influence the way I’m writing.  I can tell you that my favorite type of music is Country.

Does your family read your books?

Oh, yes!  My grandparents were fanatical readers.  My mother took after them, and so on.  And I passionately believe that to be a good writer, you have to be a zealous reader.

Thanks again for talking with us!


To me, reading is an escape from reality.  We all have those times when reality becomes too much and we need something to lighten our hearts.  Reading has always given me that, but recently, I was lucky enough to meet a man who was able to do that for me in a different way.  He's shown me that reality can be just as much fun as fiction.  As a mother, it's important to me to show my son that life is full of surprises and that we must cherish every day we are given.  Here's to lightening our hearts!

Peyton would like to offer a copy of The First Order [Safeword LLC 1] to a random commentator. Please comment below with your email to enter.

Author Spotlight ~ Melissa Schroeder

Today I want to welcome 
Melissa Schroeder

Author Bio:

From an early age, Melissa loved to read. First, it was the books her mother read to her including her two favorites, Winnie the Pooh and the Beatrix Potter books. She cut her preteen teeth on Trixie Belden and read and reviewed To Kill a Mockingbird in middle school. It wasn’t until she was in college that she tried to write her first stories, which were full of angst and pain, and really not that fun to read or write. After trying several different genres, she found romance in a Linda Howard book.

Since the publication of her first book in 2004, Melissa has had close to fifty romances published. She writes in genres from historical suspense to modern day erotic romance to futuristics and paranormals. Included in those releases is the bestselling Harmless series. In 2011, Melissa branched out into self-publishing with A Little Harmless Submission and the popular military spinoff, Infatuation: A Little Harmless Military Romance. Along the way she has garnered an epic nomination, a multitude of reviewer’s recommended reads, over five Capa nods from TRS, three nominations for AAD Bookies and regularly tops the best seller lists on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
Since she spent her childhood as a military brat, Melissa swore never to marry military. But, as we all know, Fate has her way with mortals. She is married to an AF major and is raising her own brats, both human and canine. She spends her days giving in to her addiction to Twitter, counting down the days until her hubby retires, and cursing the military for always sticking them in a location that is filled with bugs big enough to eat her children. 

Melissa is here today answering a few questions about her self. 

Thank you for stopping by today

Do you have a specific writing style? 

I think my tagline says it all. Erotic romance with a slap and a tickle. There is always a some degree of humor in my stories. Some more than others.

How did you come up with the title?

The Santinis came up just on a whim. I wanted to do something to sort of commemorate our time in the military and I wanted a family of men in the military. Since I understand the military I took the other thing I understood well: Italians. I am ¼ Italian although I probably show more of it than my other ingredients. I have a hot temper and I love to eat and cook, lol.

Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?

For the Santinis I think I want people to know that jumping into a relationship with someone in the military is not always easy, but being married to a military man or woman is much harder. But in the end, a good marriage can be made even stronger by being in the military.

How do you come up with such Alpha male characters?

I just like having men who are in control. Of course, I do my best to mess with them and make them lose control. I also like a guy with a past. Even if it might not be something the readers know at first, I want them to have their own issues that made them the way they are.

Do you have any writing rituals that you do while writing?
Music, always. That’s about it.

What types of books do you enjoy reading in your free time or what do you like to do with your free time?

I love romance. I read a lot of it, reread a lot of it. I believe as an author it is part of my job to read. It feeds my creative soul.

And, then, I like to catch up on my TV watching. I tend to watch whole seasons in a few days because I also homeschool.
Favorite type of music to have playing while writing? 

Depends on the book. For the Santinis I had a mixture of newer rock, old rock, country and a little Hawaiian.

Does your family read your books?

No. My husband does every now and then, but I am pretty sure that none of my family reads it. They know I am published, but they just don’t keep up.

The Santinis: 

Leo Santini is a man who always has a plan. It is the way to live a well-ordered life. He never planned on dealing with the hardheaded physical therapist who is taking care of his friend. He definitely never planned on being so totally infatuated with her.

Maryanne Johnson doesn't have time for a romance—especially with a military man. Sure, Leo is drop dead sexy, but more than one man in a uniform had hurt her before. Unfortunately, she can't seem to resist him or his kisses. It doesn't help that the man is as sweet as he is sexy. Falling for him is easy, but she does her best to keep herself from admitting it to him.
Leo knows she wants to keep things simple but when a Santini is in love nothing will stop him from achieving his goal—even the hardheaded woman he loves.

He shook himself, trying to push all those thoughts aside, but his voice was still a little rough when he answered. “Yeah.”

“Okay, come on in.”

She stepped back and allowed him to pass. After she shut the door behind him she leaned back against it. He turned to face her.

“Are you hungry?” he asked.

Her eyes widened. He didn’t blame her for being surprised. Arousal was thrumming through his blood and he heard it in his voice. Leo just couldn’t help it. 

His fingers itched to touch. His mouth wanted to taste.  Every bit of his body needed her in a way that should scare the hell out of him.

“Maryanne?” he asked. He would take a step back if she asked. It might kill him, but he would do it.

Then, a small smile curved her lips. “Not really hungry for pizza right now.”

Relief coursed through him as he strode toward her. He tossed the box on the table without stopping.

“Thank the Lord,” he said as he pulled her away from the door and into his arms. 

The moment he pressed his lips against hers, he knew he couldn’t let her go. 


Now, he just had to convince the woman in his arms.

Right now I am in the middle of finishing up my Santinis, who are all military. But, I have written lots of different heroes—from military guys, to cops, to security specialists, to cowboys and even some aristocratic vampires. What is your favorite kind of hero?

On His Terms

Book two in the Mastered series On His Terms

It was business only… Chelsea Barton is terrible at the whole submission thing, and she wants to snare the Dom of her dreams. She seeks out the renowned trainer Master Alexander. Alex has his hands full with Chelsea, especially when he realises he doesn’t want to turn her over to another man…

Damn, damn, and double damn. This was so not supposed to happen.

Chelsea Barton always gets what she wants, and she wants the up-and-coming rocker Evan C to accept her as his sub. But her performance always disappoints him.

Determined to have her way, she begs Master Alexander Monahan to train her.
Alex has given up training submissives, and no matter what, he would not work with someone as bold, headstrong, and stubborn as Chelsea.

But there’s something about her that intrigues and impresses him, an enthusiasm that is missing from his too-dull life. Under very strict guidelines, he agrees. She has to try her best. She has to submit uncomplainingly to his punishments. And there’s a two-week obligation, after which they will part ways. Being a trainer is a very different relationship than a D/s, and despite his intentions to remain aloof, he starts to care deeply for the headstrong Chelsea.

Chelsea unhesitatingly agrees to Master Alexander’s rules—after all, he’s going to give her the skills she needs to get what she wants. But, damn it, the longer she trains with him, the more she is attracted to his rugged good looks as well as to his firm, but relentless ways. She reminds herself of her goals, but that becomes more difficult every day.

For Alex, falling for a sub who will belong to another man was never part of the deal.
