Introducing Bridget Midway, Author of Erotic Romance Novels

Follow her characters as they explore the world of sexual command and scorching sensual pleasures.

In Corporate Seduction, the hero, Winston Biggers, is vice president of Mergers and Acquisitions for Crystal Industries. He’s a man that wants more, more out of his job and more out of his relationship. At work, he’s looking to get promoted. In his personal life, he wants a woman who’s not so compliant…or so he thinks. Maybelline Davenport also wants to move up at work and wonders why her newly-acquired college degree hasn’t help launch her career status. She also wonders if the strong alpha males she reads about in her erotic romance novels actually exist in real life. While waiting for her big break at work, she takes her best friend’s advice and starts working at an exclusive BDSM club called The Oh Club. There she encounters an unexpected client.

In Corporate Desires, Edna “Madame Z” Zulma, who ran The Oh Club, has just been released from prison. Without a dime to her name, she moves back in with her mother, who still treats her as that unruly teenager she last knew her as being. While Edna struggles with her former identity and her new life, she finds a job working for a travel/vacation rental agency where she has even more problems. Her first problem is that her new boss was a former client of her at The Oh Club, and he wants her to resume her dominating duties. Her other problem is that the office manager, Burton McCutcheon, is someone she’s attracted to, but is afraid to start anything with him since they work together. Burton, however, is not only intrigued by Edna, he also has a desire to explore a new BDSM lifestyle and hopes Edna is willing to be his submissive.

And in Corporate Needs, Maybelline’s best friend, Princess Watkins, has a new job working as a Dominatrix for Maybelline this time at her new place, a BDSM bed-and-breakfast. Lately Princess feels like she’s going through the motions at work and thinks her life would be better off if she just lived a “vanilla” lifestyle. When a new Dom, Erik Hendrix, starts working there and threatens to take a higher ranking job, Princess realizes her passion for the Lifestyle and offers him some competition.

Surviving a Long Distance Relationship by Allison Schleck

There are many times in life where you are in a fantastic relationship, almost too good to be true, and then the distance divides you. Most couples are unable to bypass the trenches of long distance relationships because they are extremely difficult. However, if your heart is in the right place, then you and your partner can survive a long distance relationship. It takes patience and hard work to make this relationship bloom, but when it does, then spring will never break.

Long distance relationships are worth the heartbreak because when you return to see each other again, you have to realize that not just any couple can live months without seeing each other and still have an amazing connection. The most important rule to live by when in a long distance relationship is making the time to always communicate with your partner. You will have to use all of your resources to keep the love flowing along. Speak on the phone, through video chats, text messages, instant messenger and through good old snail mail. Writing letters to each other are a great physical reminder that your loved one is thinking of you and taking the time out to write to you.

You may not be able to be together physically but this does not mean that you cannot have a presence there with the person you love. Sending care packages are a great way to stay connected. Make sure you send gifts that are meaningful and that will give your loved one the feeling that you are right in their room when they open up the package. Sending something sweet will remind your partner how delectable you are, something silly will remind them of your great sense of humor, spraying your perfume or cologne will remind them of how they feel when you are in their arms and something romantic to remind them of how sensual you are.

Fighting is the easiest way to put distance between the two of you. The more you fight, the more damage you do to your relationship and sometimes you cannot not bridge that gap. There are a lot of feelings including anger and frustration so it takes a great deal of self restraint to remove yourself graciously from a situation that is doomed to end in a fight. Sometimes you cannot control the distance between you and your loved one. A month of fighting is less worse than three or four or even more. Try to see each other at least every two to three weeks. You can survive more months but your relationship will truly be put to the test.

When it is time to see each other again, it should be an emotional and romantic day full of happiness. Even with months of fighting, there will still be joy that this period of distance is over. It may take a couple of days or even weeks to truly get back into synch with your partner. The more time that you spend apart, the more time it will take to adjusting to life together and bringing that physical element back to life. You can survive the distance because it isn’t the distance that will break your love, it is the lack of effort put into your relationship, just like in any relationship, that will break your bond. There are plenty of long distance couples who are thousands of miles apart that have a stronger connection than couples that live close together and see each other on a daily basis.
