The Killer Wore Leather: A Mystery
Congratulations to Laura Antoniou (author of Marketplace series), for 2013 RAINBOW Awards in:
Best B/T & LGBT Contemporary Fiction, Mystery/Thriller, Contemporary & Historical Romance



My slave loves murder mystery books and said this was a great book. Not only was it a good book but the setting was a leather convention and it was filled with realistic leather community characters. The slave and I met Laura Antoniou at a leather event which is where we learned of the new book. Laura is a charming old school leather heart with great powers of awareness and a wicked sense of humor. She is one of those magical people that help make the leather community what it is.

Amazon.com link


-=From the Back Cover=-
Many People Wanted Mack Steel...But Who Wanted Him Dead?

In Manhattan's Grand Sterling Hotel, home of the annual Mr. and Ms. Global Leather contest, last year's hunky but haughty winner lies dead on the floor of his suite, mysteriously wearing only a pair of frilly, bright yellow panties. Cormac "Mack" Steel made a lot of enemies during his year wearing the studded leather sash, not the least being his co-winner Mistress Ravenfyre. But she is not alone—there are over three thousand attendees from all over the world at this year's event, some of whom had very personal issues with the fallen leather world royalty.

Enter Detective Rebecca Feldblum, who must navigate a world of doms and subs, masters and mistresses, pups and trainers, leather, latex and lingerie, to discover who murdered the late Mack Steel—and hopefully do it before the weekend is over and everyone goes home.

Hailed as "fifty shades of funny," The Killer Wore Leather is a murder mystery only Laura Antoniou could write. In addition to the million-selling Marketplace series of erotic novels, Laura's work has been translated into Spanish, German, Hebrew, Japanese and Korean. She resides in New York City.


-=Reviews=-

The plot is fast-paced, the characters engagingly realized, and The Killer Wore Leather" is deftly spiced with dry humor that makes the reader both laugh and think for a moment about the point being made. The accurate information provided on the standards of behavior and the consensual nature of kink/BDSM for both gay and heterosexual practitioners make this novel a distinctive addition to any LGBT collection."
–LGBT American Library Association

"This is, hands-down, the best novel, in any genre, that I have read in quite a long time. I reveled in the mystery; the MCs were sympathetic and whip-smart (for the most part). The background setting of the "Mr. and Ms. Global Leather (and Bootblack) Contest" is a brilliant device for introducing vanilla readers to the leather, BDSM-lite, and fetishist scenes without, in any way, being heavy-handed, or too much for the ordinary mystery reader to handle."
—Rainbow Book Awards

"Written by Laura Antoniou, this murder mystery is set at a very well observed fetish fair. A dry sense of humor permeates the novel and the author clearly knows her subject."
—Erotic Trade Only, Issue 115

"Nearly the entire book takes place at the New York hotel where the leather and kink contest is being held, a wise narrative choice that keeps the story contained and gives potential suspects reason to interact with the victim and each other. Antoniou does a fine job translating the leather and kink scene into a difficult setting for the police to navigate."
—Foreword Reviews

"Sexy, funny, a swanky procession of leathered-up masters and slaves with names like Mistress Ravenfyre, Lord Laertes, Master Zenu, Wolfboy, Prairie Master and LeatherDreamz – what's not to love?"
—Bay Area Reporter

"Well written, intelligent, laugh-out-loud funny at times, and poignant when it needs to be. It offers a message about tolerance without being heavy-handed, and is an all-around interesting story. If you enjoy mysteries and aren’t afraid of something a little edgy, definitely pick up this book!"
—Chicks Dig Books

"A tremendous amount of care and detail is offered up so that readers can easily slide right into the story. The moment I began this novel, I was swept into the leather world, jam-packed with lots of vivid detail and hilarious, real-world characters. From check-in to murder, from sleuthing for clues to finding true love, the Grand Sterling Hotel is hopping with leather of every persuasion via non-stop entertainment."
—Rose Caraway

"Great characters, excellently told story, unexpected twists and turns, fun dialog … My recommendation is if you like mysteries, get the book. If you are into the Leather scene, get the book. If you are kinky, into D/s, into BDSM, scene sometimes… get the book. If you know how to read, get the book."
—Butchtastic

"Anyone who is a fan of mysteries, Laura Antoniou’s writing, looking for a book that revolves around BDSM that isn’t erotica or just looking for an amazing book to read will get a kick out of this!"
—Fox in the Flowers

"Oh my goodness, what a sexy, funny, clever tale Laura Antoniou has managed to collar here! It's a little bit tongue-in-cheek, a little bit knowing-wink, and a little bit eye-opening peek, all depending on how readers orient themselves to the tale."
—Beauty in Ruins

The Reluctant Dom by Tymber Dalton is the story of a man who finds out that He is dying so He asks His best friend, Seth (who has no idea that He is in the lifestyle) to become Dom to His wife. So not only does he need to deal with losing his best friend, but to learn to become the Dom that Leah needs. I love it not only from a lifestyle book but because it explores that sometimes pain is not just about sexuality but sometimes a necessary tool for achieving mental and emotional balance. It was a great first read for this little newbie.

The Submissive Trilogy by Tara Sue Me: The Submissive, The Dominant, and The Training. They are all available on Amazon. These are not the heavy S&M like the Market Place series. There's more D/s in the in the stories. I love this series and have read it many times. Prepare to be aroused.

I don't have much on my self that hasn't already been listed, but perhaps there's a couple:

"Intimate Invasions - The erotic ins and outs of enema play" by M. R. Strict. Explains enema play via stories and anecdotes. Hot and informative, so it doubles as erotica :P
"The Toybag Guide to Hot Wax and Temperature Play" by Spectrum. I found this really basic, and it's a tiny, short book, but good to get started if internet research isn't your thing.

The Inheritor: Book Six of The Marketplace Series [Kindle Edition]
Laura Antoniou (Author)

Publication Date: February 13, 2015

The long-awaited sixth installment of Laura Antoniou's Marketplace series!

When last we saw Chris Parker, he had been bought by master trainer Tetsuo Sakai and was blissfully ensconced in Japan under Tetsuo's wonderfully sadistic boot. And here we join Robin Cassidy, now contentedly serving a slave contract for a rich Chicago businessman. But the Marketplace is shaken when a new Trainer of Trainers must be anointed and the resulting machinations and clashing loyalties threaten to tear their world apart. Everyone has a stake in the outcome and Chris Parker is about to find out who is with him and who is against him.

Richly told, interconnecting threads of Parker's previously unseen past with his complicated present, The Inheritor also weaves in the narratives of many favorite Marketplace characters, including Robin, Ken Mandarin, Ron Avidon, and features appearances by many more, including Jiro, Rachel, Michael, and Grendel.

~~~~~~

I'll spare you the review excerpts and just say it got 5 star reviews from everyone.

I posted this in another discussion but I will ad it here as it seem more appropriate here.
"The History & Arts of the Dominatrix" By Anne O Nomis.
A well written book with going from ancient Greek time to modern day.
Chapter III was a little surprising to me as the term "Dominatrix" was first coined in Bruce Rogers' " The Bizarre Love Makers" circa 1927. Previous to the book I thought it came around in the 60's.

You can find it on Google Books:
https://books.google.com/books?id=yjJjAgAAQBAJ&lpg=PP1&dq=The%20History%20%26%20Arts%20of%20the%20Dominatrix&pg=PP1#v=onepage&q=The%20History%20&%20Arts%20of%20the%20Dominatrix&f=false

What do people think of Tara Sue Me? She seems to be an up and comer, following in the footsteps of Anne Rice, Maya Banks, Cherise Sinclair, etc. While I've read those, I was younger and more naive. My tastes have changed as well [I will never get over Maya Banks having the "heroine" calling her pussy/cunt/va-jay-jay [sp]/etc "woo woo". Maybe if she was engaging in age-play that would be fine, but for someone who wants a manly man and begs to be taken up the ass, "woo woo" seems childish.. If I want titilation and don't mind possessive behavior [etc], I'd read Maya Banks again, I'd rather not though.].. Anne Rice is more fantasy than erotic.. Fifty is what-not-to-do [even if there are titilating parts mixed in].. Cherise Sinclair is alright. I read the first book from the Shadowlands series [for free at Amazon], I'd give it 4 out of 5 stars. I skimmed some of her other books and wasn't that interested. In one book the "heroine" seemed to be two faced [a "witch" around other women, a "princess" around the guy she lusted after]. In another I felt mixing a sexual assault victim dealing with her recent assualt with BDSM was too much.

I've skimmed through what few excerpts there are online and have gotten the impression that Tara Sue Me expects every submissive/slave to follow strict protocol with everyone. For example, when at the den/dungeon/club/whatever it's called, all submissives/slaves are expected to address dominants as Master [mind you, I haven't read every page of every book so I could be wrong]. One comment I remember from the forums involved a submissive/slave saying that in situations like that she wouldn't address everyone like that.. Unless her dominant told her to.. I suppose every place is different though, along with every dominant and submissive/slave.

I guess what I'm wondering is how realistic the books are.. How well the characters interact with each other.. If you've read one book you've read them all [basically].. What did you like most? What did you like least? Would you read the book(s) many times? Would you buy the book(s) for friends who also enjoy kink? Or is it just another attempt by someone looking to profit from the craze for mommy porn [mommy porn is defined by urban dictionary: The characteristics that define Mommy Porn are: Its focus on female sexual fantasy; The introduction of an innocent female protagonist to an unimagined world of sex; A controlling, alpha male love interest; and its detailed description of sex without using graphic words.]

Or, is there better stuff available for free at sites like lush and bdsmlibrary? [*I visit those sites as well, but am always open to new authors]

Haven't read Tara Sue Me, but I like her pen name.

Literotica has better stuff on it than bdsmlibrary (haven't investigated lush), but the fact that it can be irritating to navigate puts some people off it. There's some pretty decent stuff on both, but I find that there's more on literotica, probably because it has more material of all flavours than bdsmlibrary than as a result of it having higher standards.
Of course, your milage may vary on that one.

.. I think I figured out the right question..

If a creature from another planet came to Earth, what are some [simply put, "erotic"] books [involving BDSM, M/s, etc] that would considered essential reading? Do such books exist? I was thinking as terrible as they may be, Fifty Shades could be considered "essential reading", for what not to do, but if this is the first thing the creature read, how would they know if it was right or wrong.. Would the [some or even all] Gor books make the list [they may be "frowned upon", but couldn't they be used as something to work from to create something better]. I haven't read Story of O, is it all it's made out to be, should it make the list.. Has anyone read the works of Marquis de Sade?! What about Masoch [Leopold von Sacher-Masoch (1835–95), an Austrian novelist]

I don't think I would include Anne Rice's Beauty series [regardless of if I liked them or not]. While it's been a while since I read them, I don't remember there being much to take away from them. Simply put, if you want one place to read about anything and everything kinky, these are some of the books to read. If you want romance, these aren't the books for you [the only relationship I remember having a chance, outside of the "kink-ly ever after" one, was one of Beauty's "classmates" who was involved with the librarian guy in the pony-play town]. If you want a book that makes you think, these aren't the books to read.

.. Do a search for "essential reading" at Google and you'll get hundreds of lists, filled with authors like Salinger, Kerouc, Fitzgerald, etc. But a search for "essential erotica" provided no relevent suggestions.

You said "essential erotica" . . . this is not an erotica book list. That would be a very large list indeed and it would have nothing to do with de Sade or von Sacher-Mach. Seems worthy of it's own thread. You should start one if your interest is that high.

This is a BDSM reading list thread that happens to include some of the better BDSM erotica, like the Market Place series. Saying Gor books are about BDSM is like saying The Mariner's Manual is about BDSM because it tells how to tie a knot in rope. Gorean philosophies or procedures and knot tying just happen to work conveniently in many BDSM relationships.

The Chronicles of Gor was contracted by the page and the author needed to fill space. So it is written with painfully excruciating detail, that wanders off plot in places to give details that don't drive the story. These details, with more than 20 types of slaves and even more slave positions, is what spawned the BDSM interest in these books. The excruciating level of detail serves as a manual for many Gorean people. If you read this thread, you will see a rundown on the Gor books here: http://www.collarchat.com/fb.asp?m=2891452

Yes, I have read almost everything the Marquee de Sade has written, and there is book list of everything he had published on page 1 in the OP of this thread. Below that list is another that shows every book written about the Marquee de Sade. I respect his writings about philosophy very much. His view on morals changed my life when I read it at age 13. Read it here: http://www.collarchat.com/fb.asp?m=1726118

Yes, I have read Venus in Furs (Leopold von Sacher-Masoch) and your question was addressed earlier in this thread. There is a wonderful story about that book and how it started someone's love for S&M. Read it here: http://www.collarchat.com/fb.asp?m=2273177

As far as 50 Shades of Grey goes... you will notice that NO ONE has had the bad taste to mention that crappy book in this respectable thread about quality reading. The only way to get any BDSM out of that book is to use it as a paddle... and even then, you can't hold it by the spine or you get nothing but fluff.

Have you read The Confession of Wanda von Sacher-Masoch? That one makes an interesting contrast to Venus In Furs...

I have not read The Confessions of Wanda Von Sacher-Masoch by Wanda von Sacher-Masoch, but it looks interesting. Thank you for bringing it up in this thread.

"The Confessions of Wanda von Sacher-Masoch is the first English translation of this early 20th century feminist classic by an SM pioneer. It is the racy and riveting memoir by the woman who was married for ten years to Leopold von Sacher-Masoch, the author of Venus in Furs. The games Wanda played called into serious question who was the Master and who the Slave. Some amazing adventures and wild characters populate this love story, including the mysterious Ludwig II of Bavaria, creator of the amazing Neuschwanstein castle and other baroque wonders."

Here is a pic of the Neuschwanstein castle. Wow... nice crib.
