Taken In Hand will guide those interested in adding consensual domestic discipline, dominance and submission, and structure to their own relationship through the initial steps of communication, understanding and discovering both partner's needs, creating mutual and realistic expectations, rules, and consequences, to the inevitable first spanking.
Taken In Hand will prove useful to those just starting out, as well as to those with some experience, as Ms. Raymond outlines the pitfalls, difficulties, and successes she has encountered in her own marriage. She also emphasizes the importance of consent and pays special attention to the fine line between discipline and abuse.
The last part of the book examines the styles and types of spanking, gives an anal sex tutorial, talks about the responsibilities or being a dominant and gives tips for the submissive partner. Whether you need insight into BDSM as it relates to relationships or are trying to build a domestic discipline marriage from scratch, Taken In Hand will prove to be a comprehensive and practical guide.
Taken In Hand was one of the three finalists in the nonfiction category for best BDSM book of the year at the BDSM Writers Con in New York City in August of 2015. It was nominated for the Golden Flogger Award.

My love of writing began in my early 30s and has been a passion ever since. I love to read, write, travel the world, and am a history buff. My genre's cover historical romance, often with a spicy kinky twist to suspenseful paranormal thrillers. My love of history makes its presence in the books I write. They are often set in centuries past. I am a lover of art, architecture, and the study of diverse world cultures. I still reside in the city I grew up in though I have traveled to many places, and live near my childhood home with the love of my life, my two spoiled cats, our neurotic dog, and our gnome, Gerome.
I have been involved in the BDSM lifestyle for over ten years, and am active in the kink community. My BDSM and power exchange relationships have always been loving and committed. I am married and we practice domestic discipline within our marriage. What we do involves a deep level of trust. This is vital in any power exchange relationship.
