Release Celebration: Daniella Bound, an erotic novella by Jake Malden



Daniella Bound by Jake Malden

Daniella Blanchard is enjoying a romantic interlude with the handsome Eric Lehane, when he makes the suggestion – an interlude on a summer’s afternoon involving ropes, a blindfold and a waiting chair. Only when bound and helpless, subjected to an intense game of sexual tease and denial, does the student begin to suspect her lover’s wicked ulterior motives in their relationship. But Daniella is no meek submissive and she has secrets of her own, which will take Eric by storm. One scorching twist follows another in what becomes a weekend-long struggle of body and mind for sexual supremacy. Who will come out on top in this explosively erotic contest – Eric, Daniella, or sheer all-consuming passion?

Just a taste of Daniella Bound...

He leaned back in his chair, mind flooding with sweet recollections …

Daniella’s orgasm‐deprived body racked with pleasure as his fingers plunged inside her.

The clutch of her contracting pussy on his cock as he boned her hard from the rear, her limbs bound by rope and her soul by sweet lust. Those wild, full‐throated cries that filled his house, as her anger gave way to ecstasy. Then later on when all had changed—her firm young breasts jogging lightly above him as she rode slowly and gently, fingertips on his chest and fronds of brunette hair dropping about his face. Oh God, hot little darling, hot sexy sweetheart. My sweet Daniell …

Shit, enough with the endearments! If he kept on down that road, one might slip out in her company. He shook himself free of reverie, finished his coffee and made to depart. His erection made motion tricky, however, so he sat back with his newspaper for cover. He wrestled himself towards a place of calm.

Pretty girl. Not unintelligent. She was perfectly pleasant company with a nice line in conversation and a sense of humour. But chiefly she was a piece – of – ass. Hold to that and it would be one very satisfactory weekend. Revenge with benefits. Everyone happy, particularly him.

Eric clinked a couple of pound coins against his coffee cup as a tip, folded his newspaper and left. No more floundering, no more stupid guilt. This girl craves control and that’s what she’s going to get. He checked his watch on the way out. Two hours, and if he went straight home that’d be two thirty. Long enough to make her squirm. Yes, that’d do nicely. He had one call to make before returning home, a short walk down the High Street.

My Review...

I love short, white-hot-sexy reads that take your mind somewhere it doesn’t get to go very often…and Jake Malden always delivers.  He’s done it again with Daniella Bound, but this time he added something extra-special to the mix:  it’s not only a lust story, it’s got humour, a couple of amazing plot twists, one very kick-ass heroine, and …. a bit of a love story, or a match made in heaven.  (OK, the heaven part might be a bit over-stated since I’m pretty sure they don’t get books like this up there.) The power exchange between the two principal characters, Daniella and Eric, leaves both of them reeling as they explore passion and lust they’ve never encountered before, and is one of the most entertaining aspects of the story.

As usual, Jake serves up some stunningly descriptive (hot-flash, no-holds-barred descriptive) erotic prose, intensely vivid imagery and witty, sexy dialogue that keeps the storyline moving along.  He also finds new and interesting ways to use everyday dairy products, but you’ll have to read about that for yourself.  It left me breathless on a number of levels.

If you are a Jake Malden fan – or if this is your first “exposure” to his talents as an erotic author – don’t miss Daniella Bound.

**A brief disclaimer is required – I edited this novella, so there may be a perception of bias.  But trust me, I’m not biased. I’m a choosy editor that only applies her skills to authors I truly admire – and Jake ranks very highly in that category. Well done, my friend … well done.  More, please!**

In early 2014, she left a career in nursing to become a freelance project management consultant. She also turned her part-time hobby into a full-time passion by becoming a freelance editor, publicist, and a hopeful author.

Born and raised near the beaches of southeastern Virginia, Paula now lives in Mendocino County, California with her husband Ray, a couple of stray tabby cats, Matthew & Diana, and a 2-year old rescue Greyhound, Willow. When she is not catering to the dog’s every whim, touring and tasting the latest California sparkling wine vintages with Ray, or sitting in Starbucks reading a great book, you can find Paula at her laptop – writing, editing, reviewing or avidly promoting the books and authors she loves. Two releases are planned in the coming year: Where Angels Lie, a dark romance; and an inspirational novella (name still under debate).
