Amazon.com Review

You would think a taste for gay leather daddies would hinder a girl's happiness, but as soon as Miranda's boyish charms attract the attention of Jack, a weathered, Harley-riding, "real done-up daddy," the doors to the San Francisco leather underworld swing open wide. The skills Miranda (a.k.a. Randy) has picked up in steamy bathhouses and behind park shrubbery come in handy with Jack and his friends. Though he resists defining their unusual relationship, Jack introduces Miranda to everyone as his "boy" and makes it clear that she is his to share. A series of Emmanuelle-like adventures follows, in which the ever-ready Miranda gets the painful, loving treatment she deserves, whether disguised as a party favor at Sir Sebastian's all-male gathering or sent as a gift to the whip-wielding Mistress Strong. In the tradition of Pauline Reage's Story of O but more immediately indebted to Pat Califia's Macho Sluts, Carol Queen puts a sex-positive California twist on the dungeons-and-daddies S/M chronicle. --Regina Marler

Carol Queen rules! This little book has all the humor, frankness, and hot hot action that I have come to expect from her work in various anthologies and magazines. This is the story of a young woman with a very hard to satisfy kink--she loves strong, macho leather daddies. So she disguises herself as a boy to pick up her tricks--sometimes successfully, more often resulting in disappointment when she reveals herself. Until she meets her daddy--a man who is open to the erotic possibilities of a heterosexual relationship! The true beauty of this story, though, is not the well written and titillating sex(although it is VERY well written and titillating!) but the sweet and loving relationship that develops between the girl, her daddy, and his lover. Carol's writing always explores unusual sexual couplings with a strong eye toward the emotion behind the action, and this story is one of the best examples of her art.

Format: Paperback
When reading erotic novels, I tend to simply skip ahead to the "good parts" because the author usually fails to set up a world where I could care about the characters. The author's energies seem to go into writing sex scenes rather than a fully engrossing story.
Carol Queen, whose short story submissions to "Herotica" and "The Best American Erotica" have been many of my favorite erotica stories ever, proves that she can work her same magic in novel (or novella) form.
I think that her sucess with this book is based in that the protangist (Miranda / Randy) and her fellow adventurers stay pretty much to the point of the book: sex. When they're not having it, they're talking about their sexual histories or waxing philisophical on their favorite intimate activities. But here's the fun part: they're not shallow. These characters care about each other and build fascinatingly sturdy, loyal relationships. We're not specifically told the passage of time between some chapters, but as the characters get more familar with each other, it's fairly obvious that chosen families are being built.
I don't recall any wasted words, or anything jarring in this book. The sex is often rough, but there's nothing unconsensual going on. It is the stuff of fantasy, but as such Queen has managed to make each fantasy important and relevant to the overall tale of gender-play, love, sex, rites of passage and the realm of the forbidden.
I am sorry to see that, as of this writing, this book is so hard to find. Queen is a wonderful writer, and "The Leather Daddy and the Femme" beats the heck out of most of what I've seen out there.

Format: Paperback
I read the first two chapters of this book as a stand alone story in a women's porn anthology somewhere, and really enjoyed them. They were hot and exciting, as well as being well written. When I saw that Queen had written a book, though a small one, based on that story I snapped it up.
I read the book last night, and it is worth the money. It's hot, exciting, and imaginative. It's also well written with believable characters. I loved it.

This is an excellent book if you enjoy the genre, but as of 10-4-2013 there are chapters missing from the Kindle version. I've brought this to the attention of customer service and was guaranteed that a stop would be placed on selling this version until fixed, but that obviously is not the case. I highly recommend the book, it's a fascinating read, but wait until the digital version is fixed.

I had read part of this book while visiting a very hot lady friend, so I knew what I was getting into. Very edgy and out there sexually for me. The book really caught my attention during my visit so I wanjted a copy of my own. Passion, unbridled lust, and love in all its forms. Great visual scenes, hot, dangerous, exciting sexual encounters. This would not be my scene, but it does give one food for thought on all matters sexual and the different forms passion, sexuality and love do take. A fun romp!
