Product Description

From the Back Cover

Watch Your Fantasies Come True
Bondage, spanking, sex parties, power play and more, all in one extra-kinky book collected by editrix extraordinaire Rachel Kramer Bussel. The stories of "Surrender" showcase the fantasies and deepest wishes of women who love to be blindfolded, bound or used for a lover's pleasure.
Whether in a hotel room, dungeon or even at a deli with instructions from the right dom, these women go deep into the heart of submission to experience the thrill of physical and mental surrender. A woman discovers that "Pink Cheeks" is more than just an online nickname in Fiona Locke's story, while Gwen Masters asks and answers "How Bad Do You Want It?" Alison Tyler's "The Hardest Part" exudes the powerful eroticism that anticipation of the next hard smack brings. Surrender yourself to these tales of bad girl submissives who ache to be punished.
With stories by Donna George Storey, Teresa Noelle Roberts, Emerald, Lolita Lopez, Terri Pray, Alison Tyler, Jacqueline Applebee, Tess Danesi, Shanna Germain, Rachel Kramer Bussel, Elizabeth Coldwell, Thomas S. Roche, Noelle Keely, M. Christian, Matt Conklin, Amanda Earl, Dominic Santi, Isabelle Gray, Justine Elyot, Fiona Locke, Gwen Masters, and Clancy Nacht.

HASH(0x9e27ada4) out of 5 stars Vanilla turned Submissive for a Brief Moment March 28 2011
By Susana Mayer, Ph.D. - Published on
Format: Paperback
The challenge was on, would the stories turn me on? It is one of the major reasons I read erotica and probably why others do as well. But I'm not into BDSM physically, so would my head allow me to convert story to fantasy to pleasure? A resounding "yes" occurred as I randomly read the stories and my body proceeded to respond. "The Chair" by Lolita Lopez was the hottest. Perhaps the details, the leather (I'm basically a vanilla who loves the smell of leather), but probably her writing skills coupled with a great story line. While reading I became "Lily" the submissive, and could feel her every sensation. I rate any erotic story by how well my body responds, and "The Chair" left mine wet. All the stories were enjoyable to read as literature, some even woke up my inner self, but Lolita Lopez's gem will be remembered the next time fantasy is called for in bed. So glad I took the leap to read a sub-genre that I would normally avoid. If you truly enjoy the role of a submissive this book will place a wide smile on your face and warmth below.
I will certainly recommend this book to the attendees of my Erotic Literary Salon in Philadelphia.

HASH(0x9e27acc0) out of 5 stars Some great new stories, and a handful of repeats. April 30 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
If you are a fan of Rachel Kramer Bussel anthologies, you might be surprised to find some old gems when you pick this one up. While many of the stories will be new to you, a handful have been reprinted from earlier Bussel anthologies from Cleis Press.

Nonetheless, if you enjoy stories of female submission, you will find something sexy and enticing in this collection. Perhaps you will enjoy a sense of familiarity with the story Without Eyes, which takes an established relationship and characters grown complacent and explores them re-establishing their roles. I know I have had some experience on that front! Perhaps you will enjoy the slight role reversal of Brianna's Fire, the story of a conductor whose first test for his potential submissive is for her to ask him for the first date. In the mean time, his steamy fantasies about her keep us entertained. Then there's Stripped, a hot first date between a mysterious dom and a woman who likes to live on the edge. There is plenty to enjoy in this book, and even though it is not all new, it is worth the read.

Many of the stories are great but if you've bought other books from RKB beware. Many of these stories are just repeats. I have Bottoms Up, Please sir, Spanked, and He's on top and was suprised to see so many of the stories I'd already read in this book. Very upset I bought a book with recycled stories.

HASH(0x9e27a5ac) out of 5 stars Another great book from RKB! March 22 2011
By Titania - Published on
Format: Paperback
Surrender is a book of erotic short stories focused around female pleasure and submission. The book is complete with 22 well written stories, though every story may not be for you - there are some for everyone. A few of my favorite of the stories are, "Dear Professor Pervert" which centers around a woman that is given assignments in a "masturbation journal" that she must complete for Professor Pervert. "Power over Power" which involves a bit of grappling between a man and woman. "The hardest part" which is a short spanking story by one of my favorite authors Alison Tyler. All in all, it's a great collection and I highly recommend it.

HASH(0x9e281de0) out of 5 stars the first of its kind for me April 30 2011
By gus - Published on
Format: Paperback
While i am not a stranger to Erotica writing i ventured out a bit with this pick. It was not the norm for me to choose a BDSM collection and i was a bit nervous once i started reading, as frankly the first story was not my favorite. however the eroticism of the other short stories thankfully made up for the first one and i was wonderfully surprised by the depth of exploration and the beautiful descriptions the writers offered. I never fully understood the BDSM scene, and while in no way does this book serve to explain it, it does however help me see the emotions felt by the participants. The stories are for the most part breathtakingly vivid and delightfully explicit. i certainly recommended this book to anyone who wishes to share the topic with their partner or to keep the pleasures hidden inside all to themselves.
