A NEW SERIES! The Denton Heights series of books can be considered prequels to the entire Bernadette Series. In that series Bernadette finds herself immersed in a very well-established BDSM community. But how did it get that way? Who are these people? Well ... that's what I hope to answer for you readers that are so darned insistent about knowing more about your favorite characters like Madison the little, Jaleesa the Domme, and let's not forget about Daddy Vic. Can't do that! So, fine! I created a whole new series. I hope you all are satisfied. And, yes, of course, I love it! - Dani 9/27/2022
The Denton Heights Series
The Denton Heights Series is the series that comes BEFORE the Bernadette Series. This group of books tells the stories of the beloved characters who populate the Bernadette Series world and who live the BDSM lifestyle. We find out more of the origin stories of Madison, Shasti, Jaleesa, Tina, Marta, Shanice, Victoria (AKA Daddy Vic), and Lydia. The Denton Heights Series is basically the “Prequel Series” to the Bernadette Series.
Under Her Wing
(Denton Heights Book One)
(The Shasti and Madison Story)
Madison Kim finds herself on a bus headed to Denton Heights, Ohio, a suburb of Cincinnati. Her mother sent her there without notice to care for an elderly Korean woman Madison had never met. Madison is twenty-two-and-three-quarters years old, has a high school diploma, but isn’t smart enough to go to college…so they tell her. Now she spends her time caring for Mrs. Park, going to the beloved Cincinnati Zoo, and watching movies on her outdated phone. She’s not really sure why she’s there, but she’s taking it day by day.
And then she meets strong nurturing Miss Shasti at a tea dance.
Shasti Balakrishnan has been looking for someone to call hers for more years than she cares to count. She wants a woman to love and care for in a nurturing Mommy Domme/little girl scenario. She’s thirty-two and already a partner in a thriving medical clinic in Denton Heights, but truth be told – she’s lonely. She thought she’d found a companion in Amber back in D.C., but that fizzled out once they realized they weren’t what each other wanted. Or needed.
And then she meets adorably precocious Madison at a tea dance.

In Her Cage
(Denton Heights Book Two)
(The Jaleesa and Tina Story)
Jaleesa Whitmore didn’t understand addiction. Not yet, anyway. Although almost one full year sober, she was done with it. She was moments from heading down the familiar road of drinking that always made her feel good and filled that void. She was about to get her life back on its old track when a fateful encounter with a stranger, who would become a trusted friend, halted her downslide. She didn’t know it then, but this encounter would lead her to a series of events and people that would change not only how she looked at life but how she approached it.
Tina Jenkins did understand addiction. Just shy of eleven years clean of her opioid addiction following a dental procedure right out of high school, everything in her world was carefully constructed and monitored by her parents. It didn’t matter that she was thirty-one years old and still living in the pink bedroom in her parents’ house. It didn’t matter that her mother now had to work from home, and her parents had to track her location and do routine searches of her bag, car, computer, phone, and room. None of it mattered because she was clean.
And then Tina met Jaleesa. And everything changed. For both of them.

The Bernadette Series
(Book One in the Bernadette Series)
eBook ISBN 978-1-953734-00-6
Dr. Bernadette Garneau holds a Ph.D. in Mathematics and is four months out of a four-year relationship. And even though Bernadette owns the house, for some reason she let her ex live there while she moved into a third-floor walk-up apartment. To top it all off, money has become tight since Jen is late on the rent. Again. If Bernadette could only find her voice and stand up for herself, she might find the peace she longs for.
One good thing about breaking up, though, is that Bernadette is free to explore her repressed sexual desires. Once she gets over her shyness about buying sex toys online, the buying begins. Then Bernadette discovers porn. She is embarrassed by the fact that she has a favorite porn star now. One of the videos she watches leads her to another about Dommes and submissives. Curious about what the words mean, Bernadette searches the internet and, with raised eyebrows, finds an intriguing website about kinks and fetishes. One made-up email address later and she is setting up a profile and perusing the kinks and fetishes of strangers from all around the world.
It only takes one message from a beautiful and powerful online Mistress and Bernadette is sucked into the world of BDSM. Mistress Ciara takes charge immediately and Bernadette is swept up in the heady power this stranger has over her. She wants more.
It isn’t until they meet in real life that Bernadette realizes that BDSM is not about getting tied up and whipped by some sex-crazed sadist without your permission. No, it is about consensual power exchange. It is all about trust and being able to let yourself go; something Bernadette hasn’t done since, well, ever.
Bernadette still can’t quite understand the hold Mistress Ciara has over her, but she likes it. A lot. She needs to find a way to keep Mistress Ciara in her life, but being such a newbie in the BDSM world, Bernadette fears she is not enough to hold such a powerful Mistress. She has gotten a taste of the life and she wants more. She. Needs. More.
This REVISED edition has an updated cover and some light editing done.

(Book Three in the Bernadette Series)
eBook ISBN: 978-1-953734-01-0
University professor, Dr. Bernadette Garneau, has fallen in love with the world of BDSM. She has a nascent interest in the pain to pleasure connection, but she has yet to find partners interested in nurturing the soul within her body that they play with. Admittedly, she’s had incredible sexual encounters with experienced Dommes, but all of them left her feeling cold for whatever reason. Most of them simply wanted a sadistic roll in the hay. Bernadette wants a strong Domme who will love and nurture her before flogging her on a St. Andrew’s cross and afterward when her body is spent.
One afternoon, she finally musters up the courage to venture out and meet some new friends in the BDSM community. In walks a tall, handsome butch woman with fantastic hair and a confident stride. When this woman asks Bernadette, “Are you collared,” Bernadette truthfully answers, “No,” and accepts a dinner invitation for that very evening. She is walking on stars when she gets home at 2 a.m. after an ethereal sexual liaison. On the one hand, she wonders who she is becoming - she’s never been this promiscuous. And on the other hand, she wonders if this strong butch woman could finally be the Domme of her dreams.

With high stakes all around, Rikki looks for the peace she is seeking within her relationship with Bernadette.
