Today the talented Kallista Dane is visiting us to discuss her newest release "His to Command," an erotic Sci-fi adventure. There’s a strong heroine on a secret mission to a distant planet, an Alpha warrior determined to master her, lots of spanking and some very naughty anal play!
Given her description, I asked Kallista what, if anything, she learned from writing her book. This is what she said:
I love doing research when I write, even though 95% of what I learn never makes it into my books. In Captured and Examined, I had to find out enough about quantum physics to create a plausible explanation for how my heroine traveled through time. For His To Command, I researched “Goldilocks planets.” That’s what astrophysicists call distant planets that aren’t too hot or too cold. Like Neodyma in my book, they might be “just right” for life to exist.
The young woman carried a pitcher and bowl and a large basket covered with a black cloth. She spoke softly without making eye contact.
“It is time to prepare you for your punishment.”
“I am called AJ. What is your name?”
If she was to successfully penetrate the young woman’s mind, AJ needed to create
a bond with her. “Surely you have some name other than that,” she replied, her voice gentle.
The young woman glanced around the room nervously. “Once…once this Harlot was known as Dianna.”
AJ perched gingerly on the edge of one of the hard wooden chairs, motioning for the young woman to join her.
“You say you are a Harlot. I’ve been told I am to be one as well, Dianna. Can you explain to me what that means?”
The woman stared dully at the wall, replying in a sing-song tone, as though repeating a speech she’d learned by rote. “Harlots serve at the pleasure of their masters. We have no duty but to please them, no desires but their desires, no will but what they will us to do.”
Carefully, AJ sent out her power, probing the mind of the woman in front of her. She got back an agonizing wave of hopelessness. Below it, lay only sorrow. No spark of vitality, no essence of free will, no semblance of independent thought remained in this woman. It was as though she had entered a mind that was nothing more than an empty shell.
She sighed. Nothing in her training had prepared her for this. Her mental skills were proving worthless in this culture.
“Can you tell me what they’re going to do to me tonight?”
Once again the woman replied by rote, parroting the words the General had uttered as though she’d been there in the room to hear them.
“At nightfall, this Harlot will be brought into the square, stripped naked in front of all the men in Petra, and receive twenty strokes from the High Priest with the Instrument of Correction. Then General Tok will award this Harlot to a Master for the night, as his gift, to discipline her privately before using her in any way he chooses.”
When Amanda Jane Norris sets out on an undercover mission to infiltrate the ranks of a rogue general on the planet of Neodyma, a world which has turned its back on modern technology, she has complete confidence in her ability to complete her task. But then things go terribly wrong…
Captured by the power-mad general, Amanda’s ordeal begins with a thorough, intimate physical examination which leaves her both utterly humiliated and helplessly aroused. Her body’s intense response to the embarrassing procedure ensures that she will be sent to join the harem the general provides for his men, but only after she is punished for her failed attempt at espionage. After a long, hard spanking in the public square, Amanda is fitted with the red tail of a harlot and prepared for her training.
She is given first to Kaden, a warrior on a secret errand of his own. He quickly proves more than willing to compel her submission with a firm hand applied to her bare bottom, but his plans for her are very different from the general’s. When Amanda first experiences the intense pleasure that a man’s mastery of her body can bring, it is unlike anything she has felt before, and though it fills her with shame she is left begging for more. But can she afford to risk asking for Kaden’s help bringing down the general?
Publisher’s Note: His to Command is an erotic romance novel that includes spankings, sexual scenes, extensive anal play, elements of medical play, elements of BDSM, and more. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.

About the Author:
Like my ancestor Scheherezade, I cannot sing or dance or paint. I have but one talent. I am a weaver of words. I love to tell stories of strong women and the even stronger men who suddenly show up in their lives when they expect it least and need it most.
As a little girl I was afraid to take risks. But when I grew up, I vowed never to let the thrills in life pass me by because of fear. Since then, I’ve walked on the Great Wall of China, gone scuba diving in underwater caves, and skied a black diamond run in Vail. But the greatest risk I’ve taken is sharing my naughtiest secret fantasies in the books I write.
