Sweet memories of the taboo in Sarah's Tutorial #Taboo2sday

I'm not sure why I enjoyed writing my heroine's despair at having my hero break up with her. Or perhaps "enjoyed" is the wrong word. . . but I certainly learned something about my own inner relation to the taboo.
Whatever. Trying to see John was the last thing she wanted, she kept telling herself. No, what she wanted was not to do anything, and so she didn't. At one point she tried to find the resolve to touch herself between her legs, where her old curls were now growing back. It didn't have the desired effect, unless the desired effect was to break through the dullness to the wracking sobs. She felt wrong down there–wrong in a way that it had never, ever felt to do any of the so-called depraved things John had made her do: the time he had introduced her to watersports, the first time she had gone ass-to-mouth, her first enema. All of that had, frankly, to borrow a phrase, seemed like God's plan for her.
Here's the blurb--buy at Amazon here!

When Professor John Dunn moves to Corbin's Bend, hoping to live the spanking-centered BDSM lifestyle for which he has always yearned, he gets more than he bargained for when his brilliant student Sarah Harshaw sets out to seduce him. Sarah, in turn, gets much more than she bargained for when she finds herself taken in hand, and loving it.

Both John and Sarah know that their torrid D/s relationship is wrong, but both also know that they have found in the other a true partner not just erotically, but intellectually as well. Will their love survive the trials that inevitably befall it when Sarah's parents find out, and confront John? Can Sarah convince John that she knew what she was doing when she entered his office even though wearing his collar wasn't in her game-plan? 

More wonderful, taboo delights below!


  1. I find her lack of response to the act of her hand interesting- until the wracking sobs. Intriguing, her list of things he introduced her too. I think it's good that we consider our relation to taboo. I know in reading & reviewing Raya's "Forbidden," I found I was at a loss to explain why her zoophilia story still felt like a taboo to me- "consent" just didn't seem to be enough to justify it, you know :D

  2. What grabs me most is her comment about her curls coming back. It is such a different feeling when you become used to being 'clean.'
