Arthur Mitchell is an erotica author of many obsessions, but all of them center around power play. He is the author of more than several dozen short stories, many of them centered around the dark delicacies found in kinks related to bondage, domination, cuckolding, and breeding.
For Mitchell, sex is all about dualities. His stark tales touch the boundaries of a curious and arousing unreality, adjacent to the real world, but also separate from it. You won't find lusty college coeds and red faced titans of masculinity in his stories. Or, at least, not in the ways you've seen them before.
Instead, you'll witness secretive desires foaming to the surface. His characters are simultaneously prisoners and explorers, edging into mysterious vistas dominated by decadent elites, fetish cults, and bored suburbanites unable to resist the irrational, addictive fantasies rattling around in their skulls.
His places and people aren't always pleasant or pretty, but they are elegant and oddly alluring. If you enjoy fine erotica with a dark undercurrent, then Mitchell's work may find its way into your hands and into your head.

This sexy tale captured me right from the start and built to a satisfying climax. River is an ambitious, yet slightly naive, young woman who finds herself facing much more than she's bargained for. The setting is exotic and glamorous, as are the trappings of the King's court. And as for the King himself, well, let's just say that "the King's scepter" is an appropriate metaphor!
River's initial hesitancy is believable, as is the King's rough seduction. There's a nice build up to her realization of her own desires, and eventual submission. Also, the emphasis on breeding is well done and the King's urgency for an heir comes across as honest and heartfelt. These two characters are off to a sizzling hot start, and I'll be looking forward to their future adventures.
