Lynda Aicher has always loved to read. It’s a simple fact that has been true since she discovered the words of Judy Blume at the age of ten. After years of weekly travel as a consultant implementing computer software into global companies, she ended her nomadic lifestyle to raise her two children. Now, her imagination is her only limitation on where she can go and her writing lets her escape from the daily duties of being a mom, wife, chauffeur, scheduler, cook, teacher, volunteer, cleaner and mediator. If writing wasn’t a priority, it wouldn’t get done.
I got my very first diary when I was nine years old. It was a small thing, with little half pages for each day to write my deepest, darkest secrets. I have to confess, I was hooked immediately. Those tiny scribbles of words provided an escape from those silly emotions and thoughts that had nowhere else to go. It was freeing and fun and that was when writing became a release for me.
I wrote in a diary almost every night until I was twenty-five. Having a place to purge my feelings got me through the ups and downs of adolescence, the breakups with too many boyfriends, my first kiss, my first love, my first time and all of the good and bad in between. Writing my emotions down was so much easier than talking about them. Knowing nobody but me would ever see them, was amazingly freeing.
I had no idea at the time how therapeutic that actually was. I still have every one of those diaries, but I have never reread any of them. There are at least twelve of them stuffed in the bottom of my nightstand drawer, each holding a year snapshot of my life.
To this day, when my I get stressed and my emotions are eating away at me, I pick up a pen and start to write. Or open a new page on my computer and let the words fly out. Do I still keep all of these soul purging’s? No, because the process of letting everything out is all I really need. But sometimes, they do find a way of ending up on the pages of my books.
So, do you keep a diary?
When Kendra Morgan attends a party at an exclusive sex club, she's not driven by mere curiosity. Hoping to prove she's put the past behind her, Kendra must instead face up to needs she's denied for too long. Despite her lingering fears, she can't resist the temptation to play…
Deklan Winters has had his eye on his attractive neighbor for months, but only senses Kendra is no stranger to the BDSM scene when she walks into his club. And he can tell that's not her only secret. What surprises him is his own overwhelming desire to give her what she craves—and to show her a side to the Dom/sub relationship she's never known.
With Deklan's guidance, Kendra begins to accept her forbidden needs and to recognize the fine line between pleasure and pain. But when her former Master returns to reclaim her, it will take all her courage—and all of Deklan's love—to defy her past.
The bag taunted her. All glossy and black, with blood red letters embossed in an elegant script proclaiming the store name. It was a simple bag, really. A standard rectangle with rope handles in the style used by most clothing stores. Yet Kendra Morgan couldn’t stop staring at it.
She moved to the right, edging around the end of her bed as if a different angle would change the effect. The shift in position caused the overhead light to glare against the shiny coating blurring the lettering, but the name was already imprinted in her mind.
If she was honest, and she was trying to be that now, it wasn’t the bag itself that mocked her. No, it was the items inside that beckoned her in a silent whisper of repressed longing.
Kendra hugged herself as she struggled against her continuous inner battle. The one that waged between the desire to wear the garments and the repulsion that came with the thought of putting them on. But there was no denying the residual excitement building within her at the thought of the night to come. Of once again being in that environment surrounded by the sounds, smells and sights of forbidden acts and deviant desires played out.
Despite all reason and arguments against it, her body still responded. Her nipples ached for the pinch of a clamp and even now tingled with longing. It was a hunger that burned in her core and begged for release.
