Gelford Hoye thinks his love life has doomed him to being a third in one failed ménage after another. He's not going to let that get in the way of a good time at Southern Decadence, though, the South's most luscious pride fest. There he meets Fanny Ferula, the Caning Queen of Cleveland and the fiercest domme in fifty states. This gender-bending master takes Gel across her knee, and Gel can't deny the fact that he loves it.
Fanny, and her alter ego Aseem, can offer Gel everything he needs to find peace and happiness...that is, if life doesn't get in the way first.

Please, G.G. Royale, can I have more? While I have read stories about drag queens before, none of them were quite like this. Authors tend to write them crude and loud, which can be lovely in itself but sometimes the romanticized version definitely works best.
Gel had always been certain that he wouldn't be satisfied in a relationship without having both a woman and a man to care for and love. His last such relationship fell through and he is feeling exceptionally lonely with everyone around him enjoying Southern Decadence fest. In one such burst of self-pity, he decided to use tickets given to him for a show and ended up meeting Fanny. Well, meeting might be the right word but what actually happened was Fanny inviting Gel to join her in her BDSM burlesque show as a submissive volunteer. It was a shock to his system because Fanny stirred things in Gel no one else before had and coming in his pants in the middle of the stage was something he certainly couldn't forget.
This is a story that just made me feel good. After what seemed nothing but dark and oppressive books lately, this one will keep me smiling for the rest of the day. Both Fanny and Aseem (the man behind the make up) were wonderful with the perfect measure of seductive, bossy and generous. I loved the descriptions of the little things that made me see her/him in a different light and connect to the character better. I liked the way Gel simply fell in lust and eventually love and how he found everything he needed in that one perfect person.
QUEEN'S FOR A DAY was a wonderful romance which brought forth the mood of the fest itself and although the BDSM moments were rather light and not upfront, I thoroughly enjoyed the seductive way the author immersed it into the story. This is something I definitely recommend and I thank the author for making this experience possible.
