HaBO-Thon: Won’t You Take Me To Kinky Town?

This is a HaBO from Jess for a series, and I have no doubt someone will guess this one almost immediately.

There was a series I read (well, at least three books) that involved a small
town that was full of kink. Everyone was in some sort of “kinky”
relationship, such as polyamory or D/s.

While I can’t remember the author or titles, I DO remember that one book
involved a the sister of a town member (who was married to a Dom), who ended
up with two brothers, and they broke her heart because they misunderstood a
phone conversation they overheard between her and her female best friend,
and thought she was cheating on them so they told her that their
relationship was “just sex”.

The other book was the best friend of the heroine I just mentioned, and she
was just coming out of an extremely abusive relationship, and she ended up
with a Dom. This Dom’s job was to “train” other Doms in the fine art of
erotic pain.

The third book was two brothers who basically staked their claim on one of
the women in town, then after an incredibly passionate night together told
her they weren’t ready for a “relationship”, at which point she blew up
at them because no other man in town would come near her after they’d
pretty much publicly announced that she was theirs. She ended up pregnant
after that one night together, and they had to convince her to give a
relationship [a try].

Can you help? I really enjoyed the series but cannot for the LIFE of me
remember who wrote it!

    Mmkay, am barely embarrassed to admit I just now looked these up for purchase and found they are by Leah Brooke and from Siren Publishing’s Menage Amour Collection.  Should have known when the title of the post had the words “kinky town” in it.  :D

    captcha each65 – not going to touch an “each” inside a menage post.

    Just gotta say that this post has the best. Title.  EVAR.

    Also, why is Kinky Town in Oklahoma?  I’d have though it would be nowhere near the conservative Bible Belt.

    @Lindz – ok, I have to admit I wondered the same thing, so I googled the series.  I have a terrible feeling that it’s because Oklahoma’s state abbreviation is OK.  So, the town is called “Desire Ok.”  Get it?  The series also features at least two sisters named Hope and Charity.  (I’m assuming there has to be a “Faith” somewhere in there.)  You wouldn’t expect erotic romance to be the last frontier of bad puns, would you?

    On the other hand, you have to admit that some small towns in the US have some odd names.  My personal favorites are Candor and Covert, NY.  One has to assume that they were founded by feuding groups.  And whoever put Ulysses, NY just on the outskirts of Ithaca had a twisted sense of humor.

    For really interesting town names, try Newfoundland. Hard to beat Blow Me Down, Come By Chance, Tickle Cove, Conception Bay, and of course, Dildo!

    @Rebecca: I live in the PNW, which has a lot of town names that come from place names in Salish languages.  My favorite is Humptulips.

    And my home state has the towns of Rising Fawn, Social Circle, Ball Ground, and Young Harris!

    I had forgotten about this series.  I have to figure out which computer I have them saved on and reread them.

    Knockemstiff Ohio is my favorite.  It’s a ghost town in southern Oh.

    Personally, I think Intercourse, PA would have been an appropriate setting for such a storyline ;)

    So sad, for once I actually knew the plot and author.  If you care, she is putting out a new book soon.  For all the things I can say about Siren,they put out some crack. 

    But some of the Siren series have interesting towns like Lusty and Male Order.  Sadly, being that I have lived in Texas and driven through Oklahoma, the town names can be that wacky.

    I am totally going to get these!!! I swear, I think our readers should write back cover copy – it’s so much more intriguing than what the publisher does!

    If you like hilarious place names, check out the board game Locale.  It’s hilarious-you are given a real strange town name and essentially do a balderdash/bluff where each player creates a fake history and location of the town that’s convincing enough to try to fool the other players into picking theirs over the real answer.
