(Currently 7 Books), by Laci Paige

The Silken Edge stories are a six book fictitious series about a group of people who are into the BDSM/Kink scene, while living ordinary lives. Each book will follow a different couple as they grow and learn to discover more about themselves in the lifestyle and their relationships. They are light BDSM/Kinky reads (with the exception of #2). The books can each be read as a stand-alone, but it would enhance the story to learn the characters in the order the books were written.

For mature audiences 18+

SILKEN EDGE (Book #1 – PermaFREE)

The relationship was over long before it ended, so when her boyfriend dumps her, Kristy craves a change in life. Kristy's best friend, Sherry, is into the BDSM scene, and on a whim and a bet, Kristy finds herself in the playroom at an exclusive club. A disguised Dom named Master Jay uses sensation play and a piece of silk to help her discover the world of kink. She finds it enjoyable and addictive, but what she doesn't know is that Master Jay is really Jake, a much younger man to whom she's strongly attracted.

For the past couple of years, Jake quietly watched Kristy in his gym. He doesn't care that she's older than him; he wants her. When the virgin BDSM sub he's hired to train ends up being Kristy, Jake almost falls apart. During the scene they play at the club, he fantasizes about getting her into restraints in his own playroom. But Kristy is shocked when she learns that the two men she desires are one and the same. Can Kristy who's led a vanilla sex life, and Jake, who knows nothing but kink, find a future together?


"Kristy, there's someone else."

Kristy White stared at the man she'd called her boyfriend until three seconds ago. "What?" Her chest burned as if the air had been punched out of her lungs.

"Well, not exactly. Not yet." Steve laughed nervously.

"Steven, just fucking say what you need to, and start making sense. This isn't funny." Tears pricked at the back of her eyes.

He glanced around at the early evening crowd in the dark bar, as if he didn't want to look in her eyes. "No, I don't mean to make fun. Do you remember Mona from work?" His words were soft, and she could see the concern on his face.

Kristy nodded.

"Well, I love you and I probably always will, but love's not enough anymore. I want something different, something more. And I think Mona's that 'more.' I haven't explored anything with her, I promise you. I've been faithful, but I don't think I can any longer." After that, Kristy only heard bits and pieces of what he had to say.

Walking home after Steven Butcher broke the news to her, she agonized over what had gone wrong in their relationship. Ignoring the traffic whizzing by, she drifted deep in thought. She had to talk this out. Calling her best friend, she learned Sherry was down the block at their favorite local tapas bar and lounge, Stan's.

A major change was in order, Kristy could feel it in her gut. How dare he dump her after she'd devoted five years to him? And to make this decision after they'd been living together for the past two years? It was time for a makeover, and not the physical kind.


"Hey, Sherry, I'm not so sure about this. I know I said I'd do it, but what will it be like? What's going to happen to me?"

"You'll have to wait and see, but don't worry. I wouldn't have you go through with this if I didn't think you'd like it, and it's safe. You'll just have to trust me."

Kristy walked with her best friend into the unknown. They stood at a black door marked "Private" near the end of the bar and waited a minute until Stan buzzed them in. Everything moved in slow motion.

The door clicked, and Sherry turned the knob and pushed the door open. Kristy hesitated above a set of steps leading down to another floor, one she hadn't known about. A sign hung on the wall in the stairwell welcoming her to Underground Decadence. Her heart pounded in her chest, not entirely out of fear, there was a little excitement mixed in.

She moved carefully down each step until she saw several doors lining a dimly lit hall, each one closed. As they reached number ten, the last room on the right, Sherry gave it a knock.

"Come in."

The voice coming through the door sounded commanding and it sent a chill up Kristy's spine. The women entered the room together. Once her eyes adjusted to the darkness, Kristy's mouth popped open. A dungeon of sorts. She'd read about this kind of place, but had never actually seen one before.

She wasn't sure what most of the contraptions were, but they didn't appear to be friendly, and her excitement died down quickly. There were ropes, chains, paddles, and odd furniture. She felt like she was being watched.

Glancing back, she saw Sherry standing next to a muscular man dressed in leathers and watching her through a black hooded mask. The mask intimidated her and her gut twisted with nervous energy.

"Are you all right?" Sherry's asked, her voice soft.

Not wanting to speak for fear her voice would waver, and then they would know that she wasn't one hundred percent comfortable, Kristy shrugged instead.

"I can stay with you if you'd like, if Master doesn't object, of course."

Master Jay shook his head. "No objections, you can stay."

Sherry cleared her throat. "Do you have any questions about the room or how things work?"

Kristy shook her head. She'd read a lot on the subject when trying to figure out her friend's lifestyle, so she was certain she knew a great deal more than the average person.
