Guest Post - 9/3/15 - "The Ways of the West" by Kelly Dawson #Erotic #Historical #Western

Today Kelly Dawson has dropped by to share an excerpt from her latest release "The Ways of the West" But before we take a trip back in history, I asked Kelly if she ever had the feeling of being watched. Because, as we all know, paranoia is really just heightened awareness. Right?

Anyway, this is how she answered: "All the time! Not so much since we’ve been in this house, but I swear a previous house we lived in was haunted. I felt like there was always something looking over my shoulder. It was horrid!"

Ah, now I wonder if her next story might not involve a ghostly spectre longing to right an ancient wrong, and a sensitive young woman who is determined to deny her gift and ignore the handsome ghost who appeals to more than her good nature. Hey, it could happen.


Johnny approached Jessica warily, not wanting to startle her. She was in shock enough as it was, he didn’t want to add to her terror. And that she was terrified he had no doubt – he could hear it in her screams, see it in her eyes.
“Jessica.” He spoke softly, crouching down on the ground near enough to touch her, but not reaching out for her. “Jessica,” he tried again. She looked at him through her tears, but she didn’t say anything; she was traumatised. Then she turned back to her family, pressing her face into their bodies, trying desperately to will them back to life. Johnny watched, helpless, as she screamed her outrage at the Indians, wailed her grief at losing her beloved, sweet mama, then turned her wrath on her father, collapsing on the ground beside him, screaming at his lifeless body the loudest of all.            
“You killed them!” she hollered, beating at his brutalised body with her fists. “It was you who wanted to come west!” she yelled. “We were quite happy, me and Mama! Now she’s gone and it’s all your fault! And Petey! He was just a baby, with his whole life ahead of him! Now he’s gone too and it’s all … your … fault.”  She ground the words out between sobs, gasping for breath. Her flailing fists stilled and she curled up against the dead man’s chest, sobbing, her body shaking, a broken woman.           
Placing a gentle hand on her shoulder Johnny spoke softly in her ear in what he hoped was a comforting tone. “Jessica, look at me.” She didn’t. Gently, he took her hands in his own and disengaged her fingers from the death-grip they had on the lapel of her father’s coat, wrapping his arms around her securely and pulling her in close against his chest. “Shhhh,” he crooned softly, trying to calm her as though she were a baby. It worked. She responded to him, her sobs easing. Her shuddering slowly stilled, she got her breathing under control and began to relax in his arms. And she clung to him tightly, so tightly, as though she would never let go. Then she looked up at him and began to speak.
“They came out of nowhere, they just rose up all around us, as though they came up out of the ground. The wagons were completely surrounded. I tried to tell Papa of the risk of Indians before we left Boston but he didn’t listen. And now look ... look at them now.” She burst into tears again, sobs wracking her body once more as she stuffed her fist into her mouth trying to stifle her cries. Johnny wrapped his arms around her tightly again, wishing he could shield her from the pain, wishing she hadn’t seen her entire family, the entire wagon train, get massacred.


Orphaned by an attack on her family’s wagon train, Jessica finds herself stranded a thousand miles from Boston, the only home she has ever known. Only one man—a rough, dusty cowboy named Johnny—stands between her and the perils of the west, and he quickly makes it clear that he is ready to do whatever needs to be done to keep Jessica safe, whether she likes it or not.

When the unlikely pair stumble upon a cattle drive and they are both offered employment, Johnny doesn’t hesitate to accept. But after Jessica loudly expresses her disdain for his plan and for cowboys in general, Johnny decides it is time for drastic action. After a hard, embarrassing spanking followed by a tearful apology to the trail boss, Jessica is left with a sore backside and a strange yet undeniably powerful need to be held close and comforted by her handsome protector.

With Johnny by her side—and claiming an ever bigger place in her heart with each passing day—Jessica begins to adjust to life on the trail. But a cattle drive is a dangerous place for anyone, let alone a city girl with a penchant for disobedience. If he ever wants the chance to make Jessica his wife, Johnny knows he’s going to have to take her firmly in hand before she gets herself hurt or killed. Even if it means a painful, humiliating bare-bottom strapping she’ll never forget, one way or another he’ll teach her the ways of the west.

Publisher’s Note: The Ways of the West is an erotic romance novel that contains sexual scenes and spankings, including domestic discipline in a historical setting. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.


About the Author:

Kelly Dawson loves anything to do with horses, rodeos and cowboys, and loves to get lost in a good book - preferably a rural romance where a strong woman falls in love with a ruggedly-handsome, tough but gentle cowboy, and these are the types of characters who feature in the stories she writes. Only in Kelly’s books, the cowboys are even better because they spank!
She lives literally at the bottom of the world in the South Island of New Zealand, with her husband, four kids, a dog and a cat.

#MFRWHooks - 9/2/15 - Mortal Illusions - A cold, calculating beauty #vampires #paranormal

Most vampires drink blood, but not all of them go for the neck.

At work?  Use your own discretion. If you’re not over 18, please explore elsewhere.

It's MFRW Book Hooks, a regular Wednesday feature!  This week, I'm sharing an excerpt from my 1st book, Mortal Illusions. A vampire romance published by New Concepts Publishing, Mortal Illusions is currently the first in a series of 3 books.  Its sequel, Fatal Desire, is currently under production.


This snippet occurs at the beginning of Chapter 14.  After she is punished by Germaine's coven, Sybill, a former mortal to one of Germaine's vampires, seeks to join a different coven. A vain beauty who wishes to be immortal, Sybill realizes she can gain two of heart's desires by beseeching Victor Cummings, the enemy of her enemy.

Though Nigel Watkins is a friend of Germaine's and an actor in his musical, he does not agree with Germaine's philosophy on transformations. So, he elected to join Victor's coven instead, and stands as an observer when Sybill makes her supplication to Victor.

            Nigel watched with dispassionate interest as their newest supplicant knelt before the assembled vampires.  Physically, she was quite a beauty, he conceded.  The firelight cast a softness to her features, giving her an otherworldly, almost ethereal glow, while it enhanced her mortal beauty--the way the fiery blaze of a raided ship imbues its pirated treasure with a golden aura.
             Still, it wasn't just the firelight that brought pirated treasures to mind.  The woman's looks alone could inspire thievery.  With long, blond hair crowning her delicate features like twisted strands of gold, eyes that sparkled like bright, priceless emeralds, and a figure that rivaled Venus herself, she undoubtedly had every man present yearning to possess her.  Yet something unidentifiable about the iconic maiden gave Nigel the impression that she was as cold and hard as the precious objects her classical beauty brought to mind.

Nigel Watkins plays Van Helsing in Germaine's musical adaptation of Dracula. He isn't aware of Sybill's history, or why she seeks to destroy her former leader, but he suspects her intentions will mean trouble for both Germaine and Claire.

M/F, Contemporary vampire romance in a society based on D/s.

Guest Post - 9/1/15 - "His to Claim" by Kallista Dane #Spanking #Sci-Fi #Fantasy

Kallista Dane has dropped by today to share an excerpt from her newest erotic Science Fiction Fantasy - "His to Claim"


Lexi gasped as waves of heat and cold began pouring through her body.  That’s when he moved his hand farther back, spreading it around her puckered anal opening.  Before she could protest, he squeezed his finger inside it.  She whipped her head up and glared at him.  Then her eyes widened in shock.  Already the effects were beginning - bursts of heat running up deep inside her anal passage, followed by a sensation of intense cold. 
His finger slid deeper.  She gasped, automatically tightening her muscles around it. The waves got stronger.  Her clitoris, blanketed by the damp leaves, throbbed at the intense heat, followed by blasts of cold that left her shivering.  Her pussy clenched, the waves tearing through her there at the same time.
Even as her mind tried to process what was happening, her body took over.  All the physical stimulation she’d received since she arrived on Iridia had thrown her carefully regulated hormones out of balance.  Lexi panted heavily.  Long dormant, raw desire burst into flame, fanned by the erotic sensations rocking her body.  His hands were everywhere.  His stiff cock rubbed against her wet skin. His finger probed in a place she’d never been touched before, flooding her mind with wicked thoughts.  She was suddenly desperate to have him quench the fire, bury that thick cock deep inside her.  Young and healthy, she reacted instinctively, the way women have reacted for thousands of years.
Lexi threw herself against him and wrapped her arms around his neck.


After a newly rediscovered device for interstellar travel malfunctions drastically, biologist Alexis Sims ends up stranded on Iridia, a planet thought to have been rendered lifeless by terrible warfare centuries ago. To her surprise, Alexis soon discovers Iridia is home to a hardy tribe of warriors—primitive savages, to her eyes—who have found a way to survive on this harsh world. Ayron, a tough, skilled hunter, rescues Alexis and brings her to an underground city.

Once there, it rapidly becomes apparent that her place in this society will be quite different from what she is used to back on Earth. When she resists being stripped and bathed, she is held firmly over Ayron’s strong thighs for the first spanking of her life. Then after a thorough, intimate examination demonstrates her suitability as a mate, Alexis is turned loose in the outlands. The hunter who captures her will win the right to publicly lay claim to her in front of the entire city.

Though Ayron is undoubtedly the mightiest of the hunters, since the tragic loss of his family he has lived in grief. But when he comes upon Alexis naked in a cave, cowering before one of the most brutish men of the tribe, instinct wins out and he fights for her, defeats his foe, and takes her as his mate.

Despite her shock at his primitive ways, Ayron’s raw masculinity and utter dominance excites Alexis beyond anything she’s ever known, and soon she is blushing red and quivering with desire as he claims her in every way he pleases. Her need for him quickly grows into something much deeper, but even as he protects her from the dangers of a hostile planet she wonders whether she can ever truly heal his wounds and take her rightful place in his heart.

Publisher’s Note: His to Claim is a stand-alone book set in the same world as His to Command. It is an erotic romance novel that includes spankings, sexual scenes, anal play, exhibitionism, elements of medical play, and more. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.

#6BestHop - 8/30/15 - Deadly Enchantment - Refusing to submit #Paranormal #Shifters

An unhappy shape shifter can be a dangerous companion....

For Sunday's Six of the Best authors share six paragraphs from a published work or a WIP (work in progress).

My excerpt for this week is from my 2nd book, Deadly Enchantment.  A shapeshifting wizard romance set in Victorian England published by New Concepts Publishing, 

In this snippet, which occurs in the middle of the second chapter, Dominic Westcroft has returned from London to discover his sister has invited several young women to his home, so he can select a new bride.  What neither he nor his sister suspects, however, is that one of the women is actually his deceased bride's sister.  Tormented by guilt over his wife's tragic and brutal death, Dominic has no intention of ever marrying again.  However, when his show of temper accidentally reveals one of their guests possesses magical abilities she's trying to keep hidden, he invites the ladies join him for dinner, so he can rout her out.

Though Serena is routed out during dinner, she manages to keep her true identity a secret. After her close call with their host, however, she returns upstairs to speak with her cousin, while Dominic retreats to his study to send for his sister. As he waits, he recalls his former mentor's prophecy stating both Dominic and Terrence would need to mate with a woman pure of spirit and body prior to their thirtieth birthday.  Failure to do so would mean slipping into a steady decline that would result in them not only losing their powers, but their minds as well. Since marriage wasn't a requirement, Terrence fulfilled his end of the prophecy many years, while Dominic waited until his wedding night when his bride was brutally slaughtered before they could consummate their marriage. Still not convinced his inner beast wasn't guilty of the crime, Dominic is far from ready to attempt such a joining again, though he finds the thought of combining powers with the little witch under his roof almost too tempting not to consider taking her to bed, if she qualified....

             “I believe you have sufficient funds to support this venture without resorting to magic, Dominic.”
            “Not for long if you keep trying to give it away.”
            “You’re as rich as Croesus even without the title, so stop complaining.  Did you unmask your vixen?”
            He counted to ten under his breath, then sighed in resignation.  “Eventually.  Have all the women undergone purity validation?”
            “All except the Blanford women, they refused to submit to the trial.”
            “Why?” he inquired, his suspicions roused anew.

Though Dominic Westcroft suspects Serena has secrets she's not willing to share, he is determined to uncover the truth behind his young guest's deception, even if it means keeping the other women around as a ruse.

#SatSpanks - 8/29/15 - Arrested by Love - Sometimes even silk can rub the wrong way #Spanking #DD

He caught her speeding in a school zone and decided she needed to learn even civil disobedience could have very painful consequences.

Reading this material at Work could get you spanked.

Welcome to the Saturday Spankings blog hop.  My stories are all M/f with the dominant male determined to protect the woman he cares for and loves, or grows to love, by doing whatever it takes to ensure her safety and continued health.  This includes administering a spanking when necessary.

My submission for this week is from my first spanking novel, Arrested by Love, published by Blushing Books.

  In this scene, near the beginning of the book, Kyle, a traffic patrol officer, has pulled over a young woman for speeding in a school zone.  Tiffany has been in love with Kyle since she was ten, so this isn't the first time she's faced the strict police officer because of some prank she's pulled.  It's not even the first time she's been caught speeding, which means she's spent a fair amount of time over his knees.  Even so, Kyle is prepared to let her go with a warning and a ticket until she propositions him.  

Angry, partly because he's tempted to accept her bribe, Kyle decides to offer her a choice. She can either spend a night in jail, or place herself over his lap and receive a harsh spanking for her reckless driving.  Though Tiffany agrees to Kyle's punishment, she's scared.  He's never been so strict with her before and she fears this spanking will be unbearable.  After he takes a moment to reassure her of his love, he orders her to lower her panties and raise her skirt.

After he administers her spanking, Kyle comforts and reassures Tiffany. Her tears reduced to sniffles, Tiffany doesn't want to move when Kyle insists she get dressed and return home so her parents won't worry about her.

             She shook her head.  "Don't want to.  It's gonna hurt," she protested with a pout.
            Ignoring her, he reached to the floor for her discarded underwear, then held them out to her.  "Sit down, and we'll get these back on you."
            "You're joking.  Right?" she asked, staring at him in disbelief.  "You really think I can sit right now?"
            "Yes, I do.  It's going to feel a bit like sitting on a really bad sunburn, but you can manage it."
            She shook her head.  "I don't think so, Kyle.  This vinyl seat is really hard, and cold."
            "Tiffanny…," he warned softly, letting her know this was not the time for her to be arguing with him.


Kyle doesn't like the thought of hurting Tiffany, though he knows he has to if he's to make any progress in curbing her impulsive behavior.  But he also realizes Tiffany has a close relationship with her parents that he doesn't want to jeopardize.

Frisky Friday - 8/28/15 - A Dom's Dilemma - Even Dom's get second thoughts #BDSM #Romance

She needed his protection, except he insisted on her honest submission first.

Reading this material at Work could get you spanked.

Welcome to Frisky Friday.  My stories are all M/f with the dominant male determined to protect the woman he cares for and loves, or grows to love, by doing whatever it takes to ensure her safety and continued health.  This includes administering a spanking when she needs one.  

My submission for this week is from my first BDSM novel, A Dom's Dilemma, published by Blushing Books.

This excerpt occurs after Master James and Kelly have spent an intense weekend together, and he has seen her home.  Kelly doesn't want to leave him, but knows she has no claim on the Dom who's taken her under his wing.  As Jim tallies up the pluses and minuses in their relationship, he realizes he's the one primarily at fault for the problem they're having. Taking himself to task for being a lousy Dom, he tries to bring his life back to order only to realize she's touched his heart in a way he never expected. Even so, he's not sure their relationship is going to work when she calls him at home. Deciding it was best to be honest, he admits that he likes her, perhaps too much to be her Dom.

            "I don't understand.  I thought you said it was an all or nothing proposition?"
            "It is," he said softly.
            "Kelly, don't think I'm rejectin' you, because I'm not.  Honest."  She didn't say anything, so he added, "I just think it might be best if we didn't see or talk to each other for a while until I'm sure I can do right by you."
            "I see."  The words sounded flat, toneless.
            He could hear Kelly's protective wall go up with a snap, and it really bothered him, so he said, "Would you like to meet and talk about it in a few days?"
            "Isn't that what you're trying to avoid?  Talking and dealing with me?  Won't that sort of defeat your purpose in telling me all this?"
            Granting her yet another allowance, he said, "Kelly, I don't want you to get upset.  I shouldn't have said anythin'.  Not over the phone like this.  I'm sorry."

Jim realizes after their time together, Kelly is likely to go through sub drop. He doesn't want to do anything that might exacerbate the situation, and yet the Dom in him wonders if he's the right choice for her.
