Normandie Alleman 3 - Whip it Up cover 10-17-13

Writing a Rom Com?

I love to eat, and 98% of what I write includes bondage. So when I heard Total E-Bound’s Whip It Up Anthology would be combining BDSM and food – I was psyched. I wanted to write the story of a girl who is successful in every area of her life. When she tries to learn to cook and fails miserably, she’s dumbfounded. The bad choices she makes along the way send her down an interesting and sexy path as she tries to please her Dom.

In this story I wanted to explore what makes a person a “bad cook”, and I had a lot of fun doing it. I borrowed from experiences that have happened to family members, and I kept it light. I always pictured Ashley as more becoming adorable with each goof up – like a brunette Lucille Ball covered in flour. You know she’s screwing up, but you can’t help but love her for it.

Which is why I wasn’t terribly surprised when my publisher labeled my story “Subterfudge” a “romantic comedy.” I never intended the story to be humorous, but I like to write quirky characters – so I’ll go with it. To clarify – while the story may be light, the sex is serious! To give you an idea, I’m sharing a steamy excerpt with you today.


Something soft and fluffy drifted up the inside of one of her legs, barely passing over her crotch before it glided down her other leg. It could have been a feather…a frilly, lush sensation. Yes, please.

“I know how much you like being tied up…do you think I need to do that to you tonight?”

“Yes, Sir.” Her voice quivered with need.

“Good thing I brought these, then.” He clutched her wrists and bound her with the familiar cloth restraints that he used with her so frequently. Her hands were confined above her head, their movement restricted to a few inches in each direction.

“Spread your legs for me.”

Ashley obeyed. The air in the room was chilly. A sense of vulnerability came over her. It reminded her of that feeling when you’re a patient in a cold, sterile hospital room.

Then she felt his mouth on her. She lurched and gasped for air when he buried his face in her mound. Tongue licking, nose nudging, teeth nipping, his hot breath coated her with his own lust. He had her quaking in moments.

She was on the verge of climax when he stopped.

Bastard! He’s teasing me. She was breathless, at the peak of arousal. He loves seeing me like a bitch in heat.

“I’m going to play with you with some unusual toys. I want you to try and guess what they are. I will help you along, but you give your best guess. Ready?”

“Yes, Sir.” She nodded.

Thwack! She felt something on the inside of her leg. What is that?

“Keep your legs spread.” His voice issued a warning.

“Yes, Sir. Sorry, Sir.”

More swats from the unknown implement. That feels familiar. What is it? When have I felt it before?

Then a swat to her pussy woke her up. The sting wasn’t terrible, but it definitely brought the blood to the surface and made her cry out.

“What am I smacking you with, little sub?”

“I’m not sure…”
