Author Bio

I’m an Ineffable Dom. That just means, do yourself a favor and please don’t try to describe me or fit me into your categories. Complicated Dom, Intricate Dom, Confounding Dom work too.

I love very much the soft side of a woman. Not just her body, but everything on the inside– her passion, her intelligence, her convictions, her delicate tenderness. But the one fetish that might be a part of what makes me an Ineffable Dom is that I love her strengths. I love a woman that isn’t afraid to look me in the eyes and say ‘make me’. But I need it to be real, not staged, not pretended. She has to be a fighter at her core the way I’m a Dom at my core. I want an equal that is willing to come hard against me in every sense of the word, exhaust me. I want her so deep inside me that we’re lost in each other. I want her to never doubt that I will always use my power to adore her, protect her, liberate her. I don’t want a woman I can break, or overpower, or exercise my dominance over, I want a woman I can come undone with. I want a woman I can jump off the cliff with into that abyss of holy hell, this is beyond me, beyond my control. The greatest fear of most people is losing themselves or unraveling their roots. My greatest fear is not finding a woman I can take that plunge with. Yes, it’s a huge risk. That’s the yin and the yang of it. And while the risk titillates my Dom, it’s the ineffable fruit of that risk that moves him. He knows he has to have it. He knows he’s supposed to have. And he’s prepared to dominate for it.

I think there are many men like myself, and I hope my writing will be a map for them. A map for women as well, to let them know Doms like this exist. I’d like to call them out of the woodwork. Help men join with their natural inner Doms in a way that I think is one of the most fulfilling experiences there are. I want to challenge them all to go for the complete power exchange with a woman, but don’t be a coward and not give the same that they demand or expect. And consider that when you give one hundred percent of yourself to a person, there is no more of you to give away. You now belong to them the way they belong to you.

Inner Doms are dogs that need a master to train them. I once bowed to my Dom’s reckless and tireless desires, but when I gained control, he bowed to my will. The transformation made me into what I am today. What many would call an Ineffable Dom. But its equal term in the Vanilla world, in my opinion, is a real man.

5 roses romance + unique creative writing

I was not expecting a very different approach to a BDSM erotic romance.  Lucian Bane surprised me with a brand new take on the same old tired theme of erotic Dom/sub relationships that’s trending around these days.  The characters were real, charming, sweet, witty, and surprisingly funny.

Tara Reese, a small town girl with a social paranoia and a penchant for handsome, blue eyed, black haired men, is standing in line for an audition for a reality TV show with a grand prize of a million bucks.  Tara clearly has no clue about the BDSM lifestyle, she picks up a copy of a Dom/sub relationship manual to read and decides to wing it.

“I don’t want to be dominated sexually.  I don’t want to be dominated in any way.  I want to dominate.  It’s what I do, who I am.  And I want to win this competition.  That’s why I’m here.  This isn’t a rush or a high for me.  I’m not a Domaholic…”

Lucian Bane is in the same line, same competition, he loves a challenge, and the exclusive bragging rights and fame of becoming the Ultimate Dom and the face of Gladiator, Inc., is just the perk he needs.  When he sees Tara he can hardly believe his eyes at this clueless woman.   He decides to help her out, or himself out, and either talk her out of the competition or make sure she loses.

“If you respond to every simple touch like that, love, you’re not going to make it past auditions.  And I’m glad, really… One less sweet angel about to get burned where the devils come to play.”

5 thump-thud hearts couples falling in love

They are paired up in the audition period and shown to a room they will be sharing, literally, it goes viral, cameras in every room, capturing every moment.  And so they begin, they start playing the game, to win, immediately.   Tara decides to start off playing the fluff scenes to the hilt.  Lucian becomes irritated and loses patience with her because of the lack of intimacy.  Tara is naïve, shy and very inexperienced, she doesn’t want to get close enough to feel any emotion for him.

“…why can’t you do the pleasure list, Tara.  It’s fucking pleasure, you won’t die.”

“It’s not just pleasure… I can’t just do those things with just anybody.”

“Well when does one become more than just anybody to you, Tara?  You have a formula for the human emotions?”

5 carnal sinful lips hot and spicy scenes

The chemistry between these two nearly blew the battery completely out of my kindle. This author knows how to write about erotic romance.  The scenes were hot, emotional, and spine tingling They satiated my every sense.  Lucian and Tara explored each other like they were an unknown planet.  They played, they discovered, they conquered, they… fell in LOVE.

I  had chains to break.  And I had a woman to free.  And pleasure was my rod of iron.   “I just want to be with you.  But you’re trapped inside yourself.   And all I want is for you to be free and happy.”   ~Lucian

“I was scared of you because you made me feel again.  You scared me because of how much I wanted you and every time you looked at me, touched me, spoke to me, you took something from me that I knew I’d never get back.”  ~Tara

5 tears emotional drama

Heart strings were pulled, Tara starts to open up to Lucian and shares secrets of past atrocious actsHe shows her by letting go of these horrid memories it frees her and enables her to move on.  Lucian shares memories of his past, an emotional event with his sister that’s forever etched in his mind.

“The whole world saw… saw me fall apart.”

“What they saw was a hero baby.  That’s what you are.  A survivor.  A strong woman.  Beautiful… Funny as hell… Sexy… Sweet…”

One word:  Satisfying.  So… how many points did they earn?  Did they win?  Did they lose? In the end, I truly hope Lucian teaches Tara the fundamental element found in a Top Dom Control oneself.  Respect oneself.  Dominate oneself.  Live, Grow, Respect, Trust, Communicate and fall in Love. 

Thank you Lucian Bane!

Why I Decided To Write A Serial

By Sawyer Bennett

Serials can be frustrating to some readers. Me personally? What bugs me about them is the waiting time between releases and wondering when the end will come. So I kept that in mind when I launched into Legal Affairs and decided to release them quickly, cheaply and with a definite ending.

 I wanted to try a new project, coming off the heels of the Off Series which was very successful. I had a very specific formula in mind… sexy + funny. I also wanted to try my hand at writing a legal themed book since I’m a lawyer by first trade. With this new formula, I thought… “Why not try a serial, where I could make each volume like an episode of ‘must see TV’ where you had a single story line that was actually part of a bigger picture?”

 Legal Affairs was soon born of those thoughts. I decided to limit the series to just six volumes, each about 12,000 words or so, with the series finale coming in at just over 17,000 words. I bumped up the heat factor, so beware… this is hotter than the Off Series. I blushed when my mom read it. Blushed again when the lawyers in my firm read it.

 Overall, I loved how it turned out. I felt I was able to convey a realistic struggle between the hero and heroine, with each volume having a true conflict that was resolved for that particular story line, but still made you wonder if they would get their HEA in the end.

 More than anything, Legal Affairs is a test of sorts. I wanted to see how well I could mesh my knowledge of the law into a steamy romance. My hope is that if Legal Affairs is successful, I will do a full length novel series with a similar theme. Maybe a law firm filled with sexy, quirky lawyers that may be a bit unethical but in the end want justice for their clients. I’ll add in plenty of snark, humor… and oh, yeah… hot sex!!  Think of it as Sex In The City meets Ally McBeal.

 How Writing A Serial Differs From Writing A Full-Length Novel

By Sawyer Bennett

I had no idea how to write a serial when I first started Legal Affairs. It takes some planning because you have an overall story line that will result in a resolution with an HEA. But the concept of a serial is to have each volume be its own story within a story. This took even more planning, resulting in charts, graphs and maybe even a Power Point presentation to make myself organized.

My chapters were shorter, thus it became a challenge to create plot points that were clear yet descriptive within a limited budget of words. I also didn’t want to miss out on steaming up the pages with some yummy sex scenes, so I had to budget those in as well.

Overall, this was a unique writing experience. It took more forethought to complete the story, which is different for me as I am a pretty organic writer. It was almost like piecing a puzzle together, but not knowing if I had all of the pieces before me.

I truly enjoyed this writing experience. It enabled me to try out a new concept in a unique fashion. I went out on a limb on this one but I think it turned out marvelously well. I truly hope you enjoy Legal Affairs!!!

Bringing My Real Life Into Fictional Writing

By Sawyer Bennett

So, I’m a lawyer. A trial lawyer to be exact. I’ve spent the past 16 years arguing my heart out to juries but honestly, it wasn’t that big of a transition to bring my creativity in oral prose to the pages.

 I’ve been dying to write a romance with a legal theme floating in the background. Legal Affairs was the perfect opportunity and I have more ideas for future books that revolve around lawyers, hot sex, gooey romance and interesting cases.

In Legal Affairs, I went light on the legal action. This was mainly because each volume has a limited budget of words, but there is a defined case that our heroine, McKayla Dawson handles in this story. It’s an actual case based on one of the very first cases I handled when I was a young lawyer fresh out of law school. The factual details are straight from my own files and it was an amazing trip down memory lane.

 One of my biggest challenges as a trial lawyer was getting a jury to step into my client’s shoes… to make them feel in their gut how much my client had been affected. It’s been an incredible journey to make my readers feel an emotional tie to the characters in my stories.  When that connection happens, it is beyond awesome.
