The Game Plan
The Game Plan Series Book 1
by Breanna Hayse
Genre: Contemporary Romance 

The book that began the Contemporary Age-Play Phenomenon is Back and it's BIGGER AND BETTER than EVER!

#1 Multi-Genre Best Selling Author Breanna Hayse brings you The Game Plan:

A story of love, hope, healing and discipline under the power of an age-play relationship.
***
After being abandoned by her father, twenty-year old Cassandra Johnson fought against being loved by anyone. Even after her mother married ex-Dolphins Quarterback Big Bill Johnson, she resisted every attempt to become part of her new family. Her resistance includes any interaction with the older Johnson boys who seem to enjoy nothing more than bossing her around. After the sudden passing of her mother, Cassie grows tired of living under the thumb of her dominating family and decides to press for independence. She starts by asserting her obstinate and willful disposition and defying all rules laid out for her. 
When Bill goes to Japan for three months on business, he leaves Rob, the oldest of his sons, in charge. After the deliberate breaking of several house rules and multiple temper tantrums, Rob decides that a change to the "Game Plan" is necessary to bring Cassie under control to prevent her from hurting herself. The first thing on his list is taking the brat for a well-deserved trip over his knee for a bare bottom spanking! 
Over the years, Rob had watched Cassie grow from an awkward little girl to a beautiful young woman. He struggles with his feelings when his interest in Cassie goes far beyond just curbing her naughty behavior. Her dream of having a life free from control is soon shattered when Bryon, the second oldest of the Johnson boys, adds some firm-handed discipline of his own.
The stubborn young woman soon finds herself facing more than just an old-fashioned, over the knee, bare-bottom spanking. She quickly learns that the Age-play lifestyle can lead to the healing of a long-broken and hardened heart. Even though she immerses herself in the joyful role of being Rob and Bryon’s Little girl, she wonders if she is truly wired for the type of relationship that they offer her. She also questions her ability to accept being Rob’s ‘big girl’ and give him what he longs for by becoming a true submissive.

Time Out
The Game Plan Series Book 2

The sequel to the original contemporary Age-Play book, the Game Plan, is here and bring you more fun and antics of the Johnson family as they grow together in Age-play and BDSM relationships.


You’ll meet Krissy, Bryon’s sweet little girl, as she is introduced to the concept of age play and discovers herself in the process. Suzanne and Glenn are back, and Suzanne explores her own femininity and puts pride aside to face her fears and needs as a Domme. Of course, we can’t forget Rob and Cassie as they grow and indulge in their own D&S lifestyle. Worlds collide as Cassie and Krissy fight over Daddy Bryon, Bryon and Glenn fight over Suzanne, and Rob seems to be the only voice of reason that is heard. And that's just the beginning...

Publishers Note: the Age-Play Dynamic of the BDSM lifestyle is the most trusting and intimate of all. It values innocence, trust and nurturing of consenting adults. If you enjoy this genre, please check out many more of my AP stories, including a nonfiction piece (The General's Little Angel) which shares how I was introduced to the dynamic.
Thank you for reading!

There are more twists and turns, sizzling hot sex, and well-spanked bottoms than this quiet little suburb of Miami can handle!



The End Zone
The Game Plan Series Book 3

The #1 Best Selling Age-Play Author who launched the world-wide contemporary Age-Play Phenomenon with The Game Plan and Time Out, brings you

THE END ZONE

***
Life was like a Chocolate Mousse Parfait for Cassie Johnson—especially since entering the BDSM lifestyle with the two alpha male brothers, Rob and Bryan. Her Dom and her Daddy Dom give her everything her Little heart desires—love, attention, pleasure, guidance and even discipline. They both belong to her, in and out of the bedroom, and her life finally feels stable, satisfying and secure. But then her happiness takes a turn when Daddy Bryon announces the probability that he will make his relationship with his girlfriend, Krissy, a permanent one. Throwing salt on her wounds, Cassie learns that both her Doms are interest in sharing her wonderful world with Krissy!
The Little Green Monster is let loose as the young woman faces the pain of being pushed aside and replaced. Devastated when her Little mode is carelessly ordered to ‘grow up,’ she decides to end BDSM, Age-Play and her engagement to Rob. Nothing, or no one, will change her mind.
Except for Dorian Graye, the Whip Master and the ‘king’ of the BDSM community. 
Distraught by Cassie’s withdrawal, Rob and Bryon decide to take her to meet their mentor. Cassie can’t resist either Dorian’s charm or his raw ability to read into her needs, and instantly sinks into her Little place. The powerful Dom and his beautiful wife, Meredith, take her under their wing to teach her how to release her fears and open herself to play, passion, and freedom. 
Self-doubt disappears in the presence of her new aunt and uncle. Cassie discovers the love of a BDSM family, all of which are equally happy to put her across the knee for a humiliating, bare bottom spanking as they are to spoil her with stuffies and ice-cream sundaes. The more she releases her Little to them, the greater the joy and freedom she receives.
She has only one concern, and that is if the magic spell of Graye Manor will disappear after they return home. There she must face the likelihood that both her Little space and her men will be shared with the other Little girl. Is her Little ready for such a Big step?



Touchdown
The Game Plan Series Book 4

Breanna Hayse, the #1 Multi-Genre Best-Selling author and founder of the contemporary Age-Play Phenomena, brings you BOOK 4 of the beloved Game Plan Series! TOUCHDOWN

****

Following the unannounced departure as the two older Johnson boys take their shared sub on vacation during Spring Break (End Zone, Book 3), Kristina Barker is left feeling abandoned, disposable and hurt. A vague text message from her boyfriend/Dom, Bryon, makes her question the reality of everything she had grown to love—including him. 

Being home alone while the other three explore the pleasures offered at Graye Manor wasn’t what she signed up for when she agreed to become part of the BDSM household. Heartbroken and discouraged, she turns to Domme Suzanne Bichat and discovers that her age-play aunt is also struggling with her relationship with Glenn, the youngest of the Johnson boys.

Both women decide that a change is in order, starting with a no limit/no restriction evening of action and adventure at a local bar—and no boyfriends or alpha males are around to stop them! However, too many drinks and a bout with a stripper-pole results in Suzanne’s ex-husband being summoned to drag the inebriated Domme from the club with little Krissy in tow. Sir Douglas Bichat, a handsome Brit and an honored dominant of The Gentlemen’s Club (TGC), employs his special skills as a loving, but firm, Daddy Dom and brings a sense of security and value to the two hurt girls.

Even while trapped in an unspoken love triangle with his ex-wife, and tormented by his own desire for her, Doug hold true to TGC’s Code of Conduct and places Suzanne’s needs above his own. With Krissy’s help, he finds a way to draw Glenn into the mix and ensure Suzanne’s happiness.

Little does he know that a void in his heart would soon be filled as the four of them grow into a family based on old-fashioned values and loving discipline. With Krissy as a niece, Glenn as his mentee, and, surprisingly, Suzanne as a Middle, Doug’s hands are happily filled with teddy bears, model ships, ice-cream cones, sand castles, and an occasional paddle to be applied to a cheeky bottom.

The week of Spring Break transforms each of them as the past is revealed, the future is uncertain, and the present exposes lust, temptation, unbridled sexual delights, and regrets. With the support of her new ‘parents’ and ‘brother,’ Krissy prepares for Bryon’s return home where he will be confronted with the truth and a decision that could permanently shatter the foundation of love and trust.

YES! There is more!
Be watching for Rob and Cassie’s wedding at Graye Manor, a shocking surprise, and the reunion of two amazing Doms in Book 5- Unnecessary Roughness!

BDSM/AP lifestyler Breanna Hayse strives to give her readers truth and reality of the BDSM/Age-Play/Total Power and Erotic Exchange lifestyle.

Who am I?

I'm a native Californian gone 'wild', and had the opportunity to travel the globe and discover the world through the eyes of both a Marine Intelligence specialist and a BDSM lifestyler. I left the service to go into hospice nursing and grief counseling, eventually working as a marriage and family therapist for those involved in alternative lifestyle development. This experience has allowed me to gain unique inspiration for my books and offer realistic plots and relatable characters.

In 2004, my husband, John, and I joined forces to work with both submissives and dominants- teaching, training, listening and loving. Our goal was to take the mystery and fear out of the lifestyle and mentor people in safe, consensual and healthy relationships.

My first book, The Game Plan, was published in 2012 and opened the door to the now-booming world of Age-Play literature. Since that time, I've devoted my 'spare' time to writing, researching, community involvement, and private and group pro bono counseling in deviant behavior, alternative lifestyle, and addiction recovery.

I was formally 'dungeon trained' as a Domme before discovering my submissive side when I joined the service. My scenarios are pulled primarily from either personal experience or observation, including spending time in BDSM clubs as the safety/medical officer. My multi-faceted background allows me to glean from many avenues and give a unique and intelligent literary experience through elements of fantasy and fiction. I also discuss the questions and psychology of the lifestyle in a manner that is fun and informative, and based on 'the real deal.'

I live with my husband, musician, and fellow-author, John Hayse, and two border collies in southern California. We practice a 24/7 D&S relationship with speckles of AP (and many trips to Build-A-Bear), and happily spend every moment together that we can. My hobbies include my puppies, hiding my vanilla salt-water taffy where John can't find it, exotic art, collecting inspirational trinkets, and developing my own paddle line. You can also see me as a featured author/instructor in professional conference settings and as a Sexpert for kinkyliterature.com.

Lena
Northern Lights Book 1

Genre: Contemporary Romance 

What does a little prima ballerina do when she falls in love with three gorgeous Daddy Doms while in the brand-new, isolated, age-play community of Northern Lights, Alaska?

After being kidnapped and held hostage by the Russia Mafia to convince her selfish, greedy father to sell them a synthesized drug, Lena’s brutal nightmare ends when four mysterious strangers rescue her. She's taken to heal in a tiny Alaskan town called Northern lights where she discovers that the physical wounds she suffered were only the beginning of drastic, but amazing, changes to her life.
While in the hospital, she calls upon ‘Daddy’ to help her. Athabaskan-born Stefan Markford, one of the town’s founders, is smitten! He refused to leave her side for a moment and begins to share a way of life so unlike anything she encountered back in Moscow.
Stefan's joined by his twin brother Sean, and older brother, Tony. The three strong Daddy Doms are devoted to making their little ballerina smile again, with music, dollhouses, and of course- candy apples. They also discover that their new Little girl has a defiant streak—one that requires old-fashioned discipline. As their love grows, the door opens for another new world for the young woman to explore—a world of wonder, sensation, and the freedom and joy of sexuality.
Be prepared to laugh, cry, rejoice, and get hot and bothered as you join Lena’s adventure in this first installment of Northern Lights.

Top 5 US Family Destinations for Britons in 2019



So, you're planning a trip to the states with your family this year, but with so many American tourism destinations to choose from, you're not sure where to start? 

Most attractions that you'll come across will be family-friendly, but some are just more fun and interesting than others. Then there are the fundamental staples that everyone should see at least once, and those are the places you really don't want to miss when you visit with your family. 

Pro tip: Be sure to check that you have a valid ESTA USA permit before your departure. You need an ESTA permit to travel as of 2010, but you may be eligible for a waiver, so look into that as well. ESTAWaiver.co.uk is the easiest site to use for getting your permit or waiver squared away.

With that said, here are the top five U.S. family destinations for Britons in 2019 and virtually every other year:

1. Grand Canyon National Park

No trip to the U.S. is complete without a tour of the Grand Canyon. The vast, expansive canyon provides a perfect backdrop for countless family photos and there are dozens of different trails to explore. Many people choose to fly into the U.S. at an airport near the Grand Canyon to start their trip in close proximity to the main attraction. If you're going to be bringing children to the park, be sure to take every safety precaution possible to keep your little ones away from ledges and other hazards – the canyon can be just as dangerous as it is majestic. Thus, it may be best to stick to guided tours when you're with the family.

2. Yosemite National Park

California's Yosemite National Park is home to one of the nation's most beautiful and diverse landscapes, with every natural wonder and feature you can name, and probably some that you can't. From grasslands to geysers, the area is absolutely packed with scenic beauty and exploration opportunities. The must-see spots in and around the park include Glacier Point, Half Dome, Mist Trail, John Muir Trail, Yosemite Valley, Mariposa Grove, and Tuolumne Meadows.

3. Redwood National Forest

Redwood trees are absolutely amazing to behold, so Redwood National Forest is definitely a place you'll want to see in person if you haven't yet had the chance. Sure, you could look at pictures of Redwoods online all day, but there's nothing quite like being in the presence of these iconic and massive trees. The surrounding old-growth forest also makes for an enchanting, otherworldly environment.

4. New York City

A visit to the U.S. shouldn't come without a trip to New York City. Sure, it isn't perfect, but it's certainly a sight worth seeing at least once. After all, the Statue of Liberty is an American icon and it really does look different in-person. In a perfect world, you could arrive near New Year's Eve in time to attend the annual celebration at Times Square. Be careful if you're on a budget for the rest of your trip, as there are many ways to overspend in NYC.

5. Seattle

Why Seattle, you may ask? Well, if you're coming from any of the other destinations on this list, a trip to Seattle will give you a great drive on the way there, and the city itself is a treasure. Taking a ferry ride and dining at the restaurant on the top floor of the Space Needle are the two most recommended tourism activities, but there are many other things to do in Washington's capital. Plus, the entire state and the rest of the Pacific Northwest are gems that no nature lover should leave the U.S. without seeing. 

From New York to California, Then Up to Seattle

In closing, you could actually see all five of the destinations listed above on one extended road trip. If you start in New York City, the trip would be doable in a vehicle, which opens up the possibility for exploring and camping at leisure. 

If you really want to see as much as you can in one trip, you don't want to be anchored to one location or region. Thus, a cross-country journey in an RV or camper van would be the perfect option for anyone who wants to return to Britain feeling like they got their money's worth. 

You could start by touring the Big Apple. Head south along the East Coast on one of the many highways that run parallel to the coast, and then take I-10 straight across to California with a stop at the Grand Canyon at around the halfway point. From there, you could take the Pacific Coast Highway all the way up to Seattle to cap off the most epic U.S. road trip ever with views from the observation deck at the top of the Space Needle.


How to Treat the Most Common Diseases Your Pet Bird Might Catch


Birds make terrific, unique pets. But like any other animal, they get sick! It’s important to keep an eye on your pet bird so you can notice strange behavior or physical symptoms. You can shop with Vet Products Direct for bird medication and treat many conditions easily from home if you catch them quickly. Here are some conditions that are common among pet birds, and their treatments.

Photo Credit

Parrot Fever

Parrot Fever (officially known as Psittacosis) is a lung and respiratory infection caused by the Chlamydia bacteria. Symptoms that a bird with parrot fever may exhibit include lethargic energy levels, eye infections, inflammation, labored breathing and watery stool.
While Parrot Fever is highly contagious among birds, it is rarely spread to humans and highly treatable if you shop with Vet Products Direct for bird medication, specifically a simple antibiotic.

Macaw Wasting Syndrome

A powerful disease in pet birds is Macaw or Parrot Wasting Syndrome (officially known as Proventricular Dilatation Disease, or PDD.) What makes this condition particularly troublesome is that, while contagious, the method by which it is spread between birds has yet to be determined. To make matters work, the common symptoms of Macaw Wasting Syndrome often don’t appear until the bird is already quite ill.

These symptoms include a swollen crop, which is the pouch of muscles by the bird’s throat, as well as vomiting, inconsistent changes in droppings, and drastic weight loss. Birds suffering from Macaw Wasting Syndrome usually must be put on a special diet, and treated with NSAIDs for their anti-inflammatory function.

Candida

Candida is essentially a yeast infection that can affect any type of bird. The yeast in the bird’s digestive system becomes overgrown which can cause vomiting and lack of appetite. It also causes problems with the crop, specifically, making it slow to empty. Candida also manifests in the form of white lesions in the mouth area, both inside and around it. Pet owners looking to treat Candida should look for antifungal medicines when they shop with Vet Products Direct for bird medications.

Beak and Feather Disease

As the name would suggest, Psittacine Beak and Feather Disease (or, PBFD) can wreak havoc on a bird’s feathers and beak in several ways. The bird may begin to lose feathers all together or lose dander (powder down.) While Beak and Feather Disease can affect birds of any age, it is most common in birds who are two years old or younger. Because of this, another symptom may be irregular feather development.

In the beak, a bird may develop lesions or other abnormal growths. PBFD is technically what humans would consider a viral skin disease, so the first step in treatment is often a skin and feather biopsy performed by a veterinarian. Unfortunately, once infected, a bird will carry this virus for life as there is no cure or effective treatment. However, a regimen of nutritional supplements can suppress the disease and its symptoms, allowing your pet bird to live a normal, long life in many cases.

Polyomavirus

Finally, we’ll look at another serious viral disorder in pet birds: Polyomavirus. In the feathers, its symptoms are like Beak and Feather disease, but it is faster moving and more severe. For birds with Polyomavirus, tailfeathers and flight feathers may not develop, or they may develop abnormally. Other outward symptoms include a swollen abdomen or even paralysis. But in some cases, no outward symptoms are exhibited. Unfortunately, birds with Polyomavirus are contagious and can spread the infection easily.

The easiest way to keep your pet bird healthy is preventative care through regular physical, blood, and fecal examinations by a veterinarian. On top of that, keeping a bird’s living area clean and trimming their wings 2-4 times a year will help them live a healthy, full life as a great pet and friend!
