Goodreads Author



Member Since
May 2013


Christina Mandara is a USA TODAY bestselling author and tends to write dark romance with lashings of kinky naughtiness. Her favourite pastime is travelling, and if it involves sun, sea and… sand then it’s all good.

In her spare time she’s usually cuddled up with a good book, exploring the countryside or baking in the kitchen. In fact, she loves her kitchen so much she’s one of few woman who wouldn’t mind being tied to it! Her first and foremost love is writing, however, and more often than not you’ll find her on a laptop spinning tales of romance, erotica or dark, paranormal fantasies.

She's a big fan of BDSM in all of its glorious forms, and her favourite item in the toy closet (a box simply isn’t big enough) is her riding crop.

Hi Donna :)

The next one is about half-finished at the moment and I'm hoping for a release date around June time. I have a feeling it's going to be a long book!

Thanks for stopping by,

Christina x(less)
C.P. Mandara Hi Danielle, thanks for the question. I'm planning on releasing The Velvet Chair around October this year. Will try to get it out sooner if I can! :)

C.P. Mandara and 2 other people liked CC's status update
CC is finished with Ashes: "As soon as you untie me, you are in trouble," I whisper breathlessly."

C.P. Mandara and 9 other people liked warhawke's status update
warhawke is 43% done with Ashes: Alain stands in front of her face and lets his fingers dance over the mahogany paddle he is holding. It is thick, heavy and brutal, and a finer weapon of ass destruction I have never seen.

“Compressing her lips together, she gave Mark a baleful glance, eyes flashing pure malice. If he wanted his lips anywhere near hers he’d better be prepared to do battle.

‘Now that’s what I’m talking about,’ said Mark, as the corner of his lip began to twitch in amusement.”
C.P. Mandara, The Riding School

“He was quite possibly the most desirable man she had ever had the good fortune to lay her eyes upon and she had to meet him like this. Life was not fair. A groan of frustration left her lips as her body began to heat once more, blood pumping furiously through her. Oh no, she thought, this cannot be happening yet again. Gritting her teeth she tried to quell her reaction.”
C.P. Mandara, The Riding School

“Hetty turned her attention back to her subject’s face and was quite surprised to see a meek little submissive, almost ashamed of the orgasm she was about to have, panting and heaving for breath whilst nearly foaming at the mouth. Indeed she looked quite tortured in the throes of passion and any Master would be extremely pleased with that particular look during training.”
C.P. Mandara, The Riding School

“You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth.”
William W. Purkey

“I want to spank you, but also want to know you want it. I need to hear it sweetheart, tell me you deserve it…”
Felicity Brandon, Friday's Lesson

“If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything.”
Mark Twain

“Confucius say, man with hand in pocket feel cocky all day”
Sylvia Day, Bared to You

“I'd rather argue with you, angel, then laugh with anyone else.”
Sylvia Day, Reflected in You
