The Whip Master
The Maids of Graye Book 1
by Breanna Hayse
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Your pleasure is his passion
Your pain is his pleasure
Come visit Graye Manor where Love Rules and Discipline Reigns Supreme
Dorian Graye is a master of the Florentine long-tail whip, and has made an art form of throwing the braided snakes to paint a human canvas. Like his Oscar Wilde namesake, he plays hard, but he loves even harder. Under a slightly sadistic exterior is a man whose greatest desire is for each of his precious submissives to find true love and ultimate happiness. He allows nothing to stand in their way, and is willing to sacrifice anything to grant them their heart’s desire… even if the journey to that desire means suffering as the door to previously unspoken taboos are opened and explored.
The time of the annual Festival has arrived and Graye Manor is bustling with a frenzy of activity. Its rolling, manicured grounds echo with the sharp sounds of a whip striking human flesh, and shrill cries filled with both pain and pleasure follow, bringing excited smiles and eager anticipation to the faces and hearts of the listeners. It’s the time of the Cirque de Sade Festival, bringing with it the final magnificent display of skills, beauty, and selfless service that will end at the auction block.
Things happen in the Manor – things that the real world would never embrace… Select applicants, known as Graye’s Maids, are trained in the classic skills of a domestic; with one major difference. Each girl is there because she’s drawn to the darker side of service and flourishes under the command of a hard palm upon a bare backside – or even, in more hardcore cases, the slash of a whip. It is here that anything is possible, and everything is probable.
Mastering Annie
The Maids of Graye Book 2
#1 Multi-Genre Best-Selling Author Breanna Hayse brings you the rerelease of the super sexy, provocative and exciting sequel to The Whip Master! Here we discovered what happens to Dorian and Merry’s beloved maid Fifty, whom the world will know as Annie when she leaves Graye Manor. This story contains BDSM, explicit erotic scenes, edge play and, of course, spanking and is on sale for a short time only so grab her while she is hot!
Achieving the dream of a ‘happily ever after’ for Annie Graye starts with a handsome Texan, a new contract, and the delicious pain of a hand- crafted leather belt against her bare backside. And so her coming of age from a slave in training to a contracted Graye Maid begins.
For Greg Carmichael, it’s neither Annie’s ‘specialized’ domestic skills, nor the terms of her contract for which he purchased her. He seeks a submissive to call his own, not because of a piece of paper, but to be his to master; in heart, mind and soul. But he has a dark side, one that goes beyond the limits of acceptable society, and he knows that these limits are ones that Annie has refused to indulge.
Albeit an unorthodox way to begin a relationship, the specially trained ‘Graye Maid’ departs the comfort and safety of Graye Manor and begins her one year term of service with her new owner. She discovers not just a different side of the BDSM lifestyle, but that people exist in the ‘real world’ who are able to accept her as she is. Included among them is Greg’s beloved younger sister, Melanie, who longs to experience the life of a submissive but has hidden her desires in the dangerous shadows of a local BDSM club.
As her feelings for Greg deepen, Annie strives to please and be of service to him, but secretly fears she cannot be everything he wants. As time goes on, she questions her ability to trust and surrender to his dark passions, and she is forced to face the fact that her dreams of the ‘happily ever after’ she has always longed for might end before their contracted year is up.
Is Annie’s desire to serve enough to conquer her fears and become the type of submissive that Greg needs, or will she be forced to make a choice between the man she is falling in love with, and the hard boundaries that she refuses to ignore?
BDSM/AP lifestyler Breanna Hayse strives to give her readers truth and reality of the BDSM/Age-Play/Total Power and Erotic Exchange lifestyle.
Who am I?
I’m a native Californian gone ‘wild’, and had the opportunity to travel the globe and discover the world through the eyes of both a Marine Intelligence specialist and a BDSM lifestyler. I left the service to go into hospice nursing and grief counseling, eventually working as a marriage and family therapist for those involved in alternative lifestyle development. This experience has allowed me to gain unique inspiration for my books and offer realistic plots and relatable characters.
In 2004, my husband, John, and I joined forces to work with both submissives and dominants- teaching, training, listening and loving. Our goal was to take the mystery and fear out of the lifestyle and mentor people in safe, consensual and healthy relationships.
My first book, The Game Plan, was published in 2012 and opened the door to the now-booming world of Age-Play literature. Since that time, I’ve devoted my ‘spare’ time to writing, researching, community involvement, and private and group pro bono counseling in deviant behavior, alternative lifestyle, and addiction recovery.
I was formally ‘dungeon trained’ as a Domme before discovering my submissive side when I joined the service. My scenarios are pulled primarily from either personal experience or observation, including spending time in BDSM clubs as the safety/medical officer. My multi-faceted background allows me to glean from many avenues and give a unique and intelligent literary experience through elements of fantasy and fiction. I also discuss the questions and psychology of the lifestyle in a manner that is fun and informative, and based on ‘the real deal.’
I live with my husband, musician, and fellow-author, John Hayse, and two border collies in southern California. We practice a 24/7 D&S relationship with speckles of AP (and many trips to Build-A-Bear), and happily spend every moment together that we can. My hobbies include my puppies, hiding my vanilla salt-water taffy where John can’t find it, exotic art, collecting inspirational trinkets, and developing my own paddle line. You can also see me as a featured author/instructor in professional conference settings and as a Sexpert for kinkyliterature.com.
