Title: Submissive Lies
Author: Shane Starrett
Genre: Erotic Romance with themes of infidelity
Release Date: August 10, 2019
Thomas was everything a woman should want. Smart, sweet, gorgeous... but that first spark Iâd felt between us had fizzled. Thereâs something wrong with me, something broken. Or... at least I thought it was broken. Then I met Steve. We went from spark to raging inferno with one flick of his eyebrow, one dangerous smile, and now all I can think about is the side of myself Iâd tried so hard to lock away. Heâs everything Thomas isnât. Heâs everything Iâve been missing. Fire and passion... and dominance. If I was a good girl, a vanilla girl, I could have been happy with Thomas. But now that Iâve met Steve, I know thatâs impossible.
My name is Jen. I am a submissive.
Iâve deceived everyone around me about who I am, and Iâve lied to myself. But this time I wonât.
This time I will choose happiness... even if it hurts.

âOkay. Jen.â Thomas' shoulders relaxed in another small release of tension as he gave a slight chuckle. âjust for future reference, you might want to think of another way of starting a conversation right after weâve had sex other than âCan we talk?â followed by âHave I ever told you about my past lovers?ââ
âUgh.â I slumped back a bit, groaning. âThis is getting all twisted aroundâ¦â
He laughed, then reached down, kissing the top of my head. âItâs fine. Just tell me what this is about.â
âIn my past relationships, Iâ¦â I paused, letting out a small sigh. âWell, there have been certain things about them that wereâ¦well, aspects of them that have includedâ¦ummâ¦â I wasnât sure exactly how to approach this. This was not a conversation Iâd ever thought I was going to need to have with him and coupled with the fact that the discussion had already gotten off to an awkward start, I was quickly beginning to lose my resolve to continue. However, Thomas was patient and didnât press me.
âCertain,â I picked up where I had stopped. ââ¦certain, uh, what people would call â¦ kinky things.â I looked up at him, hopeful, expectant, and saw his expression change from mild uncertainty to one of bemusement.
âYeah, you know, kinkyâ¦sexual things.â
âOkay.â Thomas frowned, his brows knitting together. He was deep in lawyer mode, and I could almost see his brain attacking this. âAre we talking about things like the toys in your drawer?â He made a slight motion towards the nightstand on my side of the bed.
âWell,â I pursed my lips together, taking a deep breath, trying not to let my frustration show. âThose could be considered part of it, I suppose, but what Iâm referring to are things that would be a little moreâ¦pronounced than that.â
Shane Starrett has spent twenty-five years writing steamy, erotic technical documents (okay, the erotic part is probably a bit of a stretch) for major companies in the live events industry. His first novel, Submissive Lies, was long in coming, but with guidance from his long-time beta reader of 30 years (Ms. Starrett), it is now complete and available. When he isnât writing, which isnât often, he can be found hiking trails up and down the Sierra Nevadaâs, and the coastal range in Southern California.
