Alistair Ingram is finally the man he wants to be, with the woman he wants to be with. No longer ruled by his manager, producer, agent or fans’ desires, he and Bethany “Black Betty” Stavars have settled into his LA mansion and have started a life together. Everything is as it should be…until he gets the call that Bethany has been brutally attacked in their home. 

Alistair can barely stand to see Bethany’s bruised and battered body, but that’s not the worst of her injuries. She regains consciousness thinking she’s still married to her ex-husband—the man responsible for putting her in the hospital in the first place—and has no recollection of being with Alistair.

Unable to coax her brain into giving her any memories of the past ten years of her life, Bethany struggles to comprehend how she could’ve ended up on the other side of the country—California instead of Florida—and living with superstar actor, Alistair Ingram. Even worse, how had she become a dominatrix at a Vegas men’s’ club? 

Lucky for her, the past few months have been detailed in black and white newsprint in every gossip magazine she can get her hands on. 

With their relationship hanging in the balance, there’s only one thing Alistair can do. Jog her memory the best way he knows how. In bed.

Book Trailer

Movie star Alistair Ingram strolled into Dolls & Doms private men's club in Las Vegas for his bachelor party and limped out with a torn shirt, red welts covering his chest and a broken engagement splashed all over the pages of every celebrity magazine in the country. 

A session with club Dominatrix, Black Betty, will do that to a man. 

With Alistair's manager breathing down his neck and Black Betty's abusive ex-husband alerted to where she's been hiding for the past ten years, there's only one thing to do: Lie.

And get the hell out of Las Vegas.But the real ruse is on Alistair and Black Betty, because despite both of their best efforts, they've gotten under each other's skin. Can their explicit dance of domination and submission end in anything other than disaster?

THE SUBMISSION OF ALISTAIR INGRAM is the first in a novella series from Dolls and Doms Blog, where erotic tales from the Dolls & Doms private men’s club are told in weekly episodes.

More about Alistair and Black Betty from Kelli Maine

Give us a little more behind the eyes of Alistair?
Alistair Ingram is a cocky, self-absorbed actor when we first meet him in The Submission of Alistair Ingram. Bethany Stavars (aka Black Betty) soon breaks his attitude when she comes crashing into his life with a whip and black stiletto boots. By The Penance of Black Betty, Alistair is a new man. He’s more mature and has a love he’s willing to give anything—even his acting career—to save.

What was your inspiration for writing Alistair and Black Betty?
I stumbled across the logo image found at the top of www.dollsanddoms.blogspot.com and had to write a story around it.

 If you could cast them in a movie, who would you select?
 Alistair is Chase Crawford and Black Betty is Kristen Bell!

This novella continue the story of Alistair and Bethany "Black Betty" Stavars from The Submission of Alistair Ingram. They do not immediately get their happily ever after. While Alistair is filming, Bethany is brutally attacked. And unfortunately she awakes with no memory of Alistair and has lost ten years of her life. She still believes she is married to her abusive Dom Ex. And Alistair is just a famous actor to her.

Alistair vows not to leave her side, but she will she ever remember him?

I loved Alistair's devotion and support of Bethany whether she is the Dom Black Betty or the new softer,sweeter, submissive Bethany. He is totally swoon worthy, protective, and loving. He has such charisma and charm. Bethany does not know him or remember him, but she can tell he is a good man and her body still responds to him. Their chemistry still shines through. And it just adds more to the mix between their changing dominant and submissive tendencies. She does not understand how her life turned out the way it did and the more she learns, the more it surprises her.  And Alistair has to struggle between letting her heal on her own or overburdening her with details that might be better left alone.

"You're the woman she kept hidden away deep inside. The one she was afraid to let out."

This was a very short novella, but brings Bethany and Alistair more challenges and complications to face together. They are such a unique couple and I really like them together and how things keep evolving between them. They have to basically learn who they are all over again and who they could be to each other. I enjoyed getting to see a more vulnerable Bethany vs. the harder Dom Black Betty. It was short, steamy, and sweet. And I really was just ready to keep reading more. It went by way too fast. 

Thanks to Kelli Maine for providing me with an arc in exchange for an honest review.
