Power Exchange

I'm not into scenarios where there's anything resembling bullying. But that said, power exchange and combat as foreplay can be incredibly hot. Especially when the characters are evenly matched. I like it even more when the players are paranormal creatures. If you heal supernaturally fast and will live indefinitely, then rough sex is not a risky activity. We frail mortals damage all too easily, but vampires, werewolves and their kindred can take a lot of punishment.

Which brings me round to talking about Jan Bled's vampires, Gabriel and Raiden. Two good looking young men who want each other but don't get on and so fight for dominance, and heal up afterwards. Their verbal and phyisical sparring is a joy to read. Since its paranormal and fantastical, their doing hideous damage to each other (broken bones, dislocated joints) is fine, because its unreal. And they get better very quickly. Jane's novel Master: Crimson is laden with sexual tension. Her vampire lads blatantly fancy each other, but neither is willing to admit the attraction, and both longs to have the other under his control. Instead of venting their frustration in bed, they fight, and fighting is hot, hot hot.

This is not a story for the faint hearted, but if you like blood, combat and power exchange, then its well worth checking out. Jane has a deliciously dark sense of humour, and a talent for writing sexy, difficult men. I frequently found myself wanting to slap both Raiden and Gabriel (that's got to be a fun thing to do) and the rest of the time wanting to be one or the other of them.
