What does a little prima ballerina do when she falls in love with three
gorgeous Daddy Doms while in the brand-new, isolated, age-play
community of Northern Lights, Alaska?
Russian raised and trained to be prima for the Bolshoi, Lena wasn’t
prepared for the new life waiting for her—a life filled with candy
apples, a castle fit for a princess, and three handsome men to love
on her and make all her dreams come true. Most of all, she’s

After being kidnapped and held hostage by the Russia Mafia to convince her
selfish, greedy father to sell them a synthesized drug, Lena’s
brutal nightmare ends when four mysterious strangers rescue her.
She’s taken to heal in a tiny Alaskan town called Northern lights
where she discovers that the physical wounds she suffered were only
the beginning of drastic, but amazing, changes to her life.
While in the hospital, she calls upon ‘Daddy’ to help her.
Athabaskan-born Stefan Markford, one of the town’s founders, is
smitten! He refused to leave her side for a moment and begins to
share a way of life so unlike anything she encountered back in Moscow.
Stefan’s joined by his twin brother Sean, and older brother, Tony. The three
strong Daddy Doms are devoted to making their little ballerina smile
again, with music, dollhouses, and of course- candy apples. They also
discover that their new Little girl has a defiant streak—one that
requires old-fashioned discipline. As their love grows, the door
opens for another new world for the young woman to explore—a world
of wonder, sensation, and the freedom and joy of sexuality.
Be prepared to laugh, cry, rejoice, and get hot and bothered as you join
Lena’s adventure in this first installment of Northern Lights.

BDSM/AP lifestyler Breanna Hayse strives to give her readers truth and
reality of the BDSM/Age-Play/Total Power and Erotic Exchange lifestyle.
Who am I?
I’m a native Californian gone ‘wild’, and had the opportunity to travel
the globe and discover the world through the eyes of both a Marine
Intelligence specialist and a BDSM lifestyler. I left the service to
go into hospice nursing and grief counseling, eventually working as a
marriage and family therapist for those involved in alternative
lifestyle development. This experience has allowed me to gain unique
inspiration for my books and offer realistic plots and relatable
In 2004, my husband, John, and I joined forces to work with both
submissives and dominants- teaching, training, listening and loving.
Our goal was to take the mystery and fear out of the lifestyle and
mentor people in safe, consensual and healthy relationships.
My first book, The Game Plan, was published in 2012 and opened the door
to the now-booming world of Age-Play literature. Since that time,
I’ve devoted my ‘spare’ time to writing, researching, community
involvement, and private and group pro bono counseling in deviant
behavior, alternative lifestyle, and addiction recovery.
I was formally ‘dungeon trained’ as a Domme before discovering my
submissive side when I joined the service. My scenarios are pulled
primarily from either personal experience or observation, including
spending time in BDSM clubs as the safety/medical officer. My
multi-faceted background allows me to glean from many avenues and
give a unique and intelligent literary experience through elements of
fantasy and fiction. I also discuss the questions and psychology of
the lifestyle in a manner that is fun and informative, and based on
‘the real deal.’
I live with my husband, musician, and fellow-author, John Hayse, and
two border collies in southern California. We practice a 24/7 D&S
relationship with speckles of AP (and many trips to Build-A-Bear),
and happily spend every moment together that we can. My hobbies
include my puppies, hiding my vanilla salt-water taffy where John
can’t find it, exotic art, collecting inspirational trinkets, and
developing my own paddle line. You can also see me as a featured
author/instructor in professional conference settings and as a

Falling for your surly boss is a rotten idea.
Letting him saw you in half is even worse…
Beatrice Baker may be a struggling artist, but she believes all hardships have
silver linings…until she follows her boyfriend to New Orleans and
finds him with another woman. Instead of turning those lemons into
lemonade, she drinks lemon drop martinis and keys the wrong man’s car.

some, but Bea’s been coerced into the role to cover her debt. She

She absolutely will not fall for him, or kiss him senseless. Until she
does. The scarred, enigmatic Huxley has unwittingly become her muse,
unlocking her artistic dry spell, but his vague nightly activities
are highly suspect. The last time Beatrice trusted a man, her bank
account got drained and she almost got arrested. Surely this can’t
that badly…right?
