More About the Author

It's hard to believe that not so many years ago the 'experts' insisted women didn't have sexual fantasies. Clearly they hadn't talked to women because the vast majority do. Many are willing to talk about what turns them on. The imagination is a powerful tool when it comes to enhancing sexual satisfaction. It'd be a shame not to feed the carnal mind.

It was examining her own secret sexual desires that led Vonna Harper to write erotic fiction about modern women who submit to dominant men in and out of typical (if there is such a thing) BDSM relationships.

To state the obvious, Vonna is adamant about maintaining the line between fantasy and reality. It is one thing to imagine or read about surrendering control to a sexy and powerful man she may call Master and the dark act that breaks the law and emotionally wounds victims. Vonna writes escapism, not reality for a mature audience.

Disclaimer aside, Vonna welcomes readers into imaginary worlds where her heroines explore life under the control of masterful men who direct them (sometimes forcefully) to experience the ultimate in sexual satisfaction. Readers aren't going to find typical romances tied up in pretty bows in Vonna's books. The focus is on the heroine's emotional and physical journey to being trained, owned, and used, sometimes as captive sex slaves. The men are flawed and complex--and in charge.

If you're interested in reading more about the role sexual fantasies, especially submissive ones play for today's women, here are several articles that explain the appeal to approximately fifty percent of the female population:

Format: Paperback
"The Dance". Asia Drake hides her sexual fantasies from her former work peers, her boyfriends, her family, and even her best friends. Instead she has "toys" to provide her satisfaction as she fears rejection and scorn if she ever revealed her inner desires. That changes when the hunk takes her to Surrender Island where he tries to break her will through bondage. He trains her to be a submissive to be sold to the highest bidder, but finds himself caught in the bonds of love.

"The Mask". Porn star Ferren Cooper makes good money acting in S&M roles, but seems somewhat aloof at least to her boss Richard Wilson, who wants more from her. He decides to force the issue by abducting her and taking Ferren to Surrender Island, where she will learn submission first hand. However, his handcuffs and ties fail to keep her inhuman as she somehow captures the heart, soul, and body of her instructor.

SURRENDER takes the reader beyond erotica to a world of S&M bondage in which women are kidnapped and sold on the auction block. The two female protagonists are fine fully developed characters as the audience glimpse lives beyond rookie submissives though the male trainers are interchangeable. Still readers who enjoy well written XXXX tales of bondage and love will want to read SURRENDER.

Both stories in this book have a descent plot, but mostly the stories are based on "torturing" a captive female with lots of sexual arousal through toys. Since the female characters love sex, the torture aspect isn't really believable. The chemistry between the main characters is believable, though.

I have been reading since I was a teenager, and have written a couple of stories of my own,. The last four years my interest in reading has journeyed to bdsm and I am a avid reader. I find this author's books vary in keeping my interest focused on the story, " surrender " is one of her works which I enjoyed. She used different and a variety of scenes including the use of toys which made the overall story more interesting. I found the interaction of the individuals very well described. Overall "Surrender " I would recommend.

Do you like being physically dominated by a man? Do you like being bound & naked continuously? Do you like having no say so over your own body? Do you like having all decisions made for you without being asked? If your answer is YES, then buy this book. If your answer is NO then don't.
