Please welcome the beautiful Thianna D!
Constance, for letting my book tour be on your blog today:)
This is day 5 of the As Natural As
Breathing Book Blog Tour. Have you been reading along? If not,

Growing up in a domestic discipline
definitely gives one a different perspective on it. Logan has known
about DD his entire life and as such, it is normal for him.
Considering most of the world thinks of it as an alternative
lifestyle, it makes one think. What does alternative lifestyle mean?
And does it truly apply?
After all, one could argue that any
lifestyle could be considered alternative. If you grew up in a
different one. For Logan, he has seen how close his parents are and
how loving his family is, especially in comparison with some others.
As such, domestic discipline is what he wants for his own
relationship. The problem is? How do you explain that to the other
person if they know nothing about it?
In this snippet, Logan talks to his
father about just that question.
“Dad, how common is a domestic
“I don’t think it is that
common,” Gregory admitted. “Most people would be shocked to know
I spank your mother. The fact she enjoys it, looks forward to it and
sometimes asks for it would horrify them even further.” He
chuckled. “You should have seen her face when I first suggested
Well, that was a conversation
opening if Logan had ever seen it. “Dad? When do I mention it to
Christian? I mean, in Seattle at the gay clubs, saying I like to
spank can practically be an opening line. But I don’t want to scare
him off. And yet…I also want the kind of relationship you two
have.” Logan stopped speaking as he realized he was babbling. “I
know we have only been on one date, but I really like him.”Gregory watched his son for a moment
before smiling. “You do, don’t you? Well, son, I will admit to
being woefully ignorant of the homosexual side of things. You have
told me that spanking as a fetish is common. For someone like
Christian who is from a very straight-laced family, it might be a bit
of a shock. You need one of two things to happen. First, you two need
to be far enough in your relationship that it is a relationship to
discuss it. Second, you could take him to a club where he could see
some fetishes going on and see what turns him on.”
Book Description: As Natural As BreathingLength: Novel Genre: Gay Spanking Romance
For Christian Darringer, life isn’t
worth living. Just back from the Middle East; scarred and with
permanent damage to one leg, he does not think anyone will want him
for anything. Meeting a gorgeous man he finds himself thinking about
constantly is not in his plans. Pulled toward the startling younger
man with striking blue eyes, he begins to question a lot of things –
especially his sexuality. Not one to hide from a challenge, he
plunges ahead only to find himself more than just attracted to Logan
who is full of life and joy, he finds himself head over heels in
love. Logan Mannette has almost everything he
ever wanted: loving parents, happiness, friends and security. The
only thing missing is finding the love of his life, a love that is
just like his parents’. When he meets Christian at a party,
everything changes. Instantly attracted, he does his best to help
this sad man and quickly finds himself feeling more than he has ever
felt before. Raised in a domestic discipline household, he holds that
ideal as what he wants but his interest in spanking became a fetish
and when Christian admits that he wants to be spanked, Logan believes
he might have found the perfect man. Just as everything begins for them,
Christian’s past intercedes and one of his brothers makes waves
about him dating a man. If it weren’t for Logan’s support, he
might fold; but with the love of one amazing man, Christian finds
that living his life rather than just existing is as natural as
For Thianna D, reading and writing are
as important as breathing and far more important than math or
science. A storyteller from the time she could speak, she was always
making up characters as a kid. As a teenager that turned to sci-fi
and fantasy, as an adult to romance. It wasn’t until her fourth
decade that she began writing erotic scenes within her stories. Writing M/M came naturally to her; she
wrote her first tale before ever having read one. “There is
something about the amazing dynamic between two strong men falling in
love and defeating anything thrown at them.” While she had written
several BDSM stories involving men, As Natural As Breathing
was the first full-length novel involving domestic discipline.
