Featured Guest - Daisy Harris

A Guest Post by Studenstein star, Mr. Royce Harden

Hello Anita. Hello ladies…

Daisy is feeling under the weather today, so she asked me to guest post instead. She knew you wouldn’t mind, given your impeccable taste in men. And if you don’t mind my asking, did you do something different with your hair? Is that a new outfit? You look fabulous! Good enough to eat. If only Shani didn’t keep me on such a short chain…

Not that I mind. The chain, that is. Shani keeps asking me not to mention my collar in polite company, but I’m not what you’d call “polite.” Hell, Shani was an ice-queen when I met her and now I’ve almost got her convinced to have a three-way.

Sort of… Okay, I still have a ways to go on the ménage but she’ll get there eventually. My girl likes to think she calls the shots, but she always comes around to my way of thinking.

I suppose I should tell you a little about myself. I’m six feet tall. I weight one-seventy-five. Brown hair, brown eyes…

But that’s not what you really want to know. You’d rather hear about my past—my years as the premiere love-bot in Synadate’s stable. Well, I can’t share all the details. Client information was always strictly confidential. I can say this though—I never left a customer unsatisfied.

Much as I don’t like to kiss and tell, I do enjoy the occasional brag. Shani says it a weakness, but I can tell it gets her hot. So, there was this one time a female client hired me to tie down her husband. She wanted to lie on top of him while I…


Aw hell, Shani’s back. I’ll have to wrap this up. Anita, ladies— I’ll make it up to you… Ow!

So let's hear the blurb for Royce's story.

Studenstein (Book two in the Love-Bots series)

A man built for sex… A woman who wants more…

Freedom fighter Shani Brown is determined to drag the ungrateful Royce back to her team in Seattle. Despite his denial of mistreatment, she wants to give him a chance at a better life. Due to her horrific past as an unlicensed love-bot, Shani never plans to have sex again. But Royce’s makers punish him remotely with crippling pain. His only escape is to orgasm. Never one to turn her back on a job, Shani soon finds herself servicing him—and soon after, caring for him.

Love-bot Royce Harden wasn’t looking to be rescued, especially not from the San Francisco BDSM club where he was having a perfectly good time. But rescued he was—by a hellcat bent on delivering him to her people. As Royce starts to trust Shani, he begins to dream of freedom. But freedom comes with a price. Royce must face his vanity, his makers, and even the loss of his sexual upgrades if he’s going to be the man Shani deserves.

And the excerpt

She pressed her mouth to his, shutting him up. Her breath tickled his cheek and she rubbed her hand along his stubble as if she thought he was perfect no matter what. After long moments, Shani spoke against his lips. “You stupid, stupid slave boy.” She pulled back far enough so he could see her roll her eyes. “How could you even think I’d care about all of that?”

“That’s all anyone’s ever cared about.” The words popped out before he could stop them and Royce winced at how petulant he sounded. “I mean to say… That’s what I’ve always been good at. Why people wanted me.”

Shani put her hand on her hip, her expression smug. “Didn’t I tell you flies weren’t worth catching?”

Royce felt a smile tug at the corner of his lips—a grin he’d never practiced and hadn’t been programmed with, an expression he was pretty sure he’d only ever shown to Shani. “I guess I shoulda listened, huh?”

She slugged his arm, luckily his uninjured one. “Yeah, good thing you’re pretty.” Shani leaned over and kissed his cheek, whispering in his ear. “Because you are dumb as nails.”

Now let's hear about Daisy

Birkenstock-wearing glamour girl and mother of two by immaculate conception, Daisy Harris still isn’t sure if she writes erotica. Her paranormal romances start out innocently enough. However, her characters behave like complete sluts. Much to Miss Harris’s dismay, the sex tends to get completely out of hand.

 If you like science-y subplots, fantastical creatures, and red-hot chemistry, you’ll love Daisy Harris.
