How to Discipline Your Vampire by Mina Vaughn ~ Review and Giveaway


In this exciting paranormal erotic romance, a dominant schoolteacher with a serious role-play fetish finds the perfect submissive in an infamous vampire lover.

Cerise Norrell, Type A substitute teacher by day, is ready to quit being a domme. Despite her best intentions, none of her partners can keep up with her scene fetish and attention to detail—let alone her demand that they have a costume and set waiting every afternoon by the time she’s home from school.

Over a dozen potential subs have left her in the past year, but just when Cerise thinks it’s impossible—that she’ll have to go back to vanilla relationships, or be alone forever—she meets William, who wants to make all her fantasies come true. He turns her home into a geisha’s dream apartment, a concert hall with a grand piano (which he uses to play an original composition while wearing a tuxedo), and even rents an abandoned loft for a zombie apocalypse scene—complete with canned goods.

But there’s something strange about William. Well, a lot of strange things. He must be absurdly rich, since he can afford to provide extravagant costumes and props on a daily basis without having to leave work early. He must be insane, since he puts up with Cerise’s over-the-top demands. And most importantly, he doesn’t redden when he’s spanked, and his skin is as cool as satin sheets. When Cerise discovers she’s become dome to the infamous “Chilly Willy,” as he’s known throughout the BDSM urban lore, she begins to find out there’s a whole lot more to her handsome submissive than a creative mind and a hard body.

And when it’s William, ironically, who starts pressing Cerise to give him the kind of commitment she’s never given anyone, it’ll take everything she has to work through her issues, confront her past, and learn to be vulnerable.


This book was very different from other paranormal books I have read..... female dom looking for a male submissive with no commitments, but when she finds him he just happens to turn out to be a vampire......a male vampire who is a submissive, who feels inadequate, has a troubled past, and is just looking for someone to love him....tons of fabulous role play scenes.....and a dash of humor makes this story stand out from others that I have read in the past. 3.75 stars!

Cerise Norrel is a substitute teacher by day, and a Domme named Mistress Cherry each weeknight. During the weekend she is a flannel wearing ice cream lover. She has very specific needs and a specific fetish......role play.  She needs her submissive's to impress her and be original with their scene selection. Unfortunately, no one has been able to meet her requirements for too long, and she has gotten a name in the BDSM community for her outlandish list of rules and requirements.

Then Cherise meets William Gentry aka "Chilly Willy. William is a vampire submissive who is vulnerable and desperately wants someone to love and accept him for whom he is. He is ready and willing to submit to Mistress Cherry in every way.  William also has made a name for himself in the BDSM community due to his cold hands, inability to bruise or redden, and apparent running when things get too heated during sessions.

Sparks fly between Cherise and William, and the more time they spend together Cherise finds herself wanting more, but she has been burnt before in the past and doesn't want to let anyone in.  Can William crack Cherise's tough exterior? Can William find the love and acceptance he has been searching for all his life from Cherise?

I enjoyed this book.  It did take me a little while to get into it at first, but once I got going it was great.  I loved how the paranormal factor wasn't over the top. The perfect light and entertaining read.... funny, and SMOKING HOT!!!
