Katie Porter (Writing Duo Lorelie Brown & Carrie Lofty)

We are so pleased to welcome back Katie Porter a.k.a. writing duo Lorelie Brown & Carrie Lofty to BLI today to celebrate the release of HOLD ‘EM the third book in their Vegas Top Guns series, which releases from Samhain today! I read INSIDE BET and can honestly say was absolutely WOW’ed and these ladies keep batting home runs because HOLD’EM is as good (my full review will be featured at BLI later today). This one features a tough independent female fighter pilot who is an adrenaline junky, an enticing hero & lots of  kinky sex…femdom style! 


About Katie Porter:

Katie Porter is the co-writing team of Lorelie Brown and Carrie Lofty, friends and critique partners of six years.

Both are multi-published in several romance genres. Carrie has an MA in history, while Lorelie is a US Army veteran. Generally a high-strung masochist, Carrie loves weight training but she has no fear of gross things like dissecting formaldehyde sharks. Her two girls are not appreciative. Lorelie, a laid-back sadist, would rather grin maniacally when Carrie works out. Her three boys love how she screams like a little girl around spiders.

Take it away Katie!

Femdom 101
By Katie Porter

Leah from Hold ’Em is a femdom.

Wait! No! Don’t run away, I promise she’s not scary! And I also promise Captain Michael Templeton, her hero, isn’t a snivelly whining dude either.

They’re a normal hero and heroine, I swear it. Michael is pretty much as alpha as they come. He’s a fighter pilot (Leah is too) and rides a badass motorcycle. He just…happens to like getting ordered around in the bedroom. And he really likes taking pain, in the form of spankings, paddlings and floggings.

The thing is, saying “femdom” to most people evokes a certain set of images. Women in black leather corsets with blood red lipstick and a riding crop between their teeth, towering over a man wearing panties. That isn’t Leah at all. Not that there’s anything wrong with that sort of femdom, either–it’s just not Mike or Leah!

Leah is an average chick. She’s just a little wound tight. In the previous Vegas Top Guns books, she’s let out her excess energy by partying hard and flirting with inappropriate men. When Hold Em starts off, she’s trying to be good, but it’s starting to wear on her. She need somewhere to vent. Where better than on the backside of a fit, sexy, tempting guy?

Book Blurb:

Daughter of a world-famous motocross champion, and head-on competitor with three brothers, Captain Leah “Princess” Girardi was born with a need for speed. No one tells her what to do, especially not men with chauvinistic “girls can’t be fighter pilots” attitudes.

That’s what ended her brief relationship with Captain Mike “Strap Happy” Templeton. Now, six years later, he’s been assigned to her squadron, and whoa damn, he’s filled out nicely. Plus he’s cultivated a Zen-like chill factor that pulls at her hormones.

Even after four tours, Mike’s the new kid in the 64th Aggressor Squadron. That’s not the only thing new. Since he last saw Leah, he’s learned a few things about himself. A female who outranks him still makes his teeth grind, but in the bedroom he craves the rush of pain inflicted by an adoring, powerful woman.

Their reunion is an explosive revelation. Leah is the beautiful mistress he’s been searching for, and she takes to her new role like a natural. But Leah’s aware one thing hasn’t changed. Loving him is still an all-or-nothing proposition. She’s not sure her reckless streak is wide enough to risk her career—and her heart.

Warning: This book contains a hot stud on his knees, a woman wielding a paddle, and filthy-gorgeous femdom sex. Also: dangerous rock climbing, two amazing motorcycles and some bad tequila.


“What would it take?”

“To put me in a good mood?”

“Yes, ma’am.” His voice curled around them, keeping them apart from the crowds.
She shivered on the chilly burst of need that turned her veins to live wires. Two words were all she needed to become wrapped up in him. She shook off the high-strung buzz then reached for Michael. His hair was so soft, the strands barely long enough to wrap around her fingertips. She pinched and tugged. “This, pet? You’d offer yourself over a silly game?”

His eyes drifted half-shut. The corners of his mouth quirked. “That’s always an option.”
She leaned up on her toes, took his mouth. The shape of his lips was just right to fit hers. They slipped together, each taking a little at a time. She could get lost in him if she let herself—forget where she was, forget how everything would be different on Monday when they went back to work.

She nibbled his bottom lip once for good measure. “You taste like crappy coffee.”
“Gonna offer me something tastier to lick?”

“Is that what you want?” Unable to resist any longer, she snuck her fingers under the hem of his snug T-shirt. He was all thin skin over strong muscle. Lovely. “You want me to ride your face like the toy you are?”

Now he grinned with infectious humor, no matter the sex blazing between them. “If it would help your cranky-ass mood.”

With a grin she said, “So noble and sacrificing.”

Looping a finger through his belt, she tugged him back into the main stream of foot traffic. The touch of leather against her skin was changing her in irrevocable ways.

“You’re going to buy me cotton candy instead.”

“One does what one must,” he said with a put-upon air.

However, he didn’t let her drag him along. He needed only two strides with his long legs to eat up the distance between them. He walked at her side then took the lead.

That was hot. He really did mean “only in the bedroom”. Thank God. She wouldn’t have enjoyed their play at all had he been some sniveling sub who begged mommy to give him a spanking. Mike was one hundred percent man. He was strong, sexy and marvelously self-assured. Those qualities meant that when he gave over to her whims, he satisfied them both with explosive results.

A few minutes later, with his corndog already gobbled down, he presented her with a pink-and-blue cloud of cotton candy.

Because really, all femdom means is a woman who’s willing to take exactly what she wants from a man. And who hasn’t had that impulse now and then?


Question: Have you ever read a femdom book before?

    Yes I have; so many authors now write strong take charge women ad men who not only accept them but partner with them!

  • Cris September 25, 2012 at 7:44 am

    Congrats on the new release! I’m sure it’ll be a smash!

    I’m a fairly new reader of erotic romance [romantic suspense & thrillers being my primary genres] and haven’t read a femdom book before, but I’m looking forward to it. A woman in complete control in the bedroom? Hell yeah! 🙂

    So many people have recommended the Vegas Top Guns series to me– the second I’m not buried under a gigantic pile of science papers & experiments to finish up my dissertation, I’m starting on it!


  • Carrie Lofty September 25, 2012 at 9:01 am

    Hi everyone,

    I’m the Carrie Lofty half of Katie Porter here to stop by and thank you for doing so too. Lorelie always picks the tastiest excerpts! For those of you new to erotic romance, we hope “Vegas Top Guns” are a great introduction. For you connoisseurs, please enjoy our take on femdom with HOLD ‘EM. Mike is just too delicious to pass up.

    Good luck with the drawing!

  • Joanne B September 25, 2012 at 9:15 am

    Congrats on the new release. This book, like the rest of the series, sounds fantastic. Can’t wait to read it. I have never read a femdom book before but it sounds interesting. I can’t wait to experience it.


  • Michele H September 25, 2012 at 10:58 am

    The new release sounds crazy good! I haven’t read any femdom yet but I think this is just the book to start with. Thanks for the chance to win it!

  • Carrie Lofty September 25, 2012 at 1:00 pm

    Joanne and Michele, there isn’t a whole lot of femdom out there, so we’re glad you’re up for giving it a try. It was so much fun to write, and to explore that side of BDSM sexuality. Thanks for being here today!

  • Susan T. September 25, 2012 at 1:08 pm

    Katie Porter is a new author well make that Lorelie Brown & Carrie Lofty are new to me. I haven’t read any femdom. I do have this series on my TBR and I can’t wait to venture into my first femdom. Thanks.

  • Jan September 25, 2012 at 6:00 pm

    I haven’t read any femdom but I really like the idea.

  • bn100 September 25, 2012 at 10:59 pm

    I don’t think I have.

  • Yadira A. September 25, 2012 at 11:13 pm

    Nope never read a femdom book before, but I’m thinking I might need to give it a try:)

  • JenM September 26, 2012 at 1:27 am

    I have read one or two and I enjoyed them, but I don’t seek them out. I have to say though, that I wanted this book as soon as I read a couple of excerpts.

  • erinf1 September 26, 2012 at 11:36 am

    Thanks for a great post and congrats on the new release(s)!!! This would be a first for me. I don’t think I’ve read about a femdom… definitely caught my interest!!!

  • Laurie September 26, 2012 at 1:31 pm

    I’ve read books with that as part of the story, but not the main focus. I would love to read more though. This series looks awesome!

  • Carrie Lofty September 26, 2012 at 2:02 pm

    Wee! Lots of interest, or at least curiosity. We hope HOLD ‘EM satisfies that curiosity. It was a story we needed to write, because we weren’t finding “our style” of femdom erotic romance out there, if that makes sense. I guess that’s why authors write in the first place: to tell the stories that they wish they could find!

  • DANIELA September 26, 2012 at 9:56 pm

    I’m not sure I have. Although I like reading books with strong female characters.

  • ClaudiaGC September 27, 2012 at 9:57 am

    I’ve only read some femdom stories from Joey W. Hill. But I’d love to read more! I’ve seriously loved all the previous Vegas Top Guns books and can’t wait to read this one! Thank you for the giveaway.

  • Linda October 2, 2012 at 10:15 am

    I read about strong women all the time, feels like PNR is filled with them. Contemp, too. It might be that i don´t read the ones with wimps, but that´s just me =)

    Love the giveaway,
    best wishes, Linda

  • Laura October 6, 2012 at 1:58 pm

    I haven’t read any femdom-specific novels yet, but have a feeling it is going to become more popular. Especially with urban fantasy genre on the rise, which seems to feature a lot of kick-ass females that I could see morphing easily into the femdom role. I read Inside Bet and liked it a lot, so I’m definitely looking forward to this one! Thanks!
