Dominion: Jane brings us into the lives of a widow and her immersion into the local BDSM scene in Portland, Maine. Jane, a hospital administrator in her mid-40s is looking to find the piece in her life that’s been missing all along. Robert, recently back from a job assignment in the Middle East is looking for a sweet submissive to pass the time with. Their paths cross at Dominion, a private club in a converted factory in Portland. The story follows their relationship, what they want from life and each other, and how the complications of everyday life tangle up even the best-laid plans.
Mela lives in Rhode Island with her husband, her daughter and two cats, one whom is still trying to kill her even after 8 years and one who thinks she's just too damn fancy for everyone else in the house. You'll usually find her living vicariously through her favorite characters, while sitting next to her husband on the sofa. A voracious reader (396 books in 2012!), her debut novel, Like You Read About was started as a NaNoWriMo/40th birthday challenge, her wonderful supportive husband bought her a laptop and told her to go for it. She’s now hard at work on the Dominion series, which is filled with realistic characters living in Portland, Maine who are involved in the local BDSM scene.
