I loved the telling of The Doll Collector so much, with Ella Ford weaving between now and then to illustrate just how Claudia Ross came to become such a collector of beautiful women. She hooks the reader, getting them excited about the harem of beautiful dolls, and then invites us to get to know who they are and how they came to be there.

As much as I loved the telling, though, I absolutely adored the insights into submission that Ford explores here. This is not submission in a BDSM sense of whips and chains, but in the underlying desire to hand over control to another - to relinquish all freedom and all responsibility, to walk away from the demands of everyday life, and to take pleasure in the service to another. There were so many times in reading these 3 stories where I squealed with delight over finding my own thoughts and desires on the page, my own fantasies not just laid bare, but accepted and embraced.

Despite being submissive dolls who exist for their owner's pleasure, the women of Claudia's harem are genuine, well-rounded characters with passions, desires, and attitudes of their own. While they can play the part of silence, docile dolls, perched and posed atop their plinths, they are just as sensual and sexually exciting when put into play. The introduction of new dolls is delightful, watching Claudia break down their defenses and put them in touch with their deepest, darkest, most secret needs, and the interplay of them all is simply delicious.

Sexuality: Bisexual

Relm Jayne introduces Larry and Tamara as your typical suburban couple. He's a hard-working, blue-collar, Alpha male who takes pride in coming home dirty and sore from an honest day's work, and she's an Alpha's fantasy, a hyper-sexualized housewife who cooks, cleans, and has a cold beer waiting when her man gets home.

Everything about her seduction, their bathtub foreplay, and their initial bedroom fun is straightforward (pun intended) Alpha male sexual fantasy. Tamara's teasing of a new trick, a surprise she learned from another housewife, inflames Larry's curiosity, and she finally reveals her secret while he is orally pleasuring her . . . and noticing something strange.

That is the point where some authors would have the man freak out and need to be forcibly dominated; where others would have him shamefully admit to long-repressed homosexual desires; and where still others would rely on magical, pheromone-induced mind control to bring hubby to heel. That is so not what Husband's Futa-Wife's Surprise is about! Larry is shocked, and full of confused passion, but his only thought is to love this new part of his wife, to make this perfect for her.

In fact, there is a lovely moment where Larry questions how "gay guys do" anal, and Tamara responds by reminding him of all the ways they've enjoyed it, making him realize how silly his question is. Even as she prepares to take his chery, Larry reasserts his masculine prowess with no sense of submission or emasculation, no fear or guilt, just an Alpha man having new and different sex with his wife. And that sex is, of course, delicious! Relm Jayne has a talent for erotic detail and you get all the sights, sounds, and sensations in a story that's intensely erotic and wonderfully romantic, the perfect blend of passions with the perfect couple.
