WipItUp Wednesday - 9/28/16 - Learning to be Little - No skills, no money #AgePlay #BDSM


WIP: Work in progress.  WIP it up Wednesday is a hop where writers share portions of the project they're working on with readers.  I really like the idea because it allows me to share something that's still in the creative stage as well as work behind the scenes as a prompt to keep me writing.

The WIP I've chosen to share today is tentatively titled "Learning to be Little: Kelly's Story."  It is a story about Kelly Franklin's first immersion into BDSM with a Daddy Dom. It begins in the present directly after "A Dom's Dilemma" then slips into her past before returning to the present again. It's my first attempt at an age play story, but I hope it will provide a lot more insight into Kelly's character. Though the manuscript is still in edits at this point, I decided to begin sharing snippets of my first draft, beginning with the start of Kelly's nightmare.

The mock cover I used for Camp NaNo
I'm continuing where I left off last time. As an only child born to two only children, a young and precocious Kelly Franklin seeks out her Daddy whenever something frightens her. Unfortunately, her Daddy isn't available to soothe her and two strange men were hurting her mother. Scared, Kelly remains as quiet as a mouse in her parent's closet until the police pull her out. Twelve years later, Kelly still suffers nightmares from that time and finds herself placed in an orphanage.


Kept under a more secure watch and a stricter regimen with the nuns, she remained a ward of the Catholic church for twelve years and even briefly considered becoming a nun, but she wasn't Catholic or even a very devout Christian. So, at age eighteen, she was given the clothes she now wore, some spending money, and a list of places where she could find shelter and food. They no longer had the room or funds to keep her, and she was of age. Kelly hadn't exactly been a model child, so even though the nuns weren't cruel, she suspected they were relieved to see the last of her.
She spent several days looking for work, but outside of her gamin looks, she really had few qualities to recommend her, and fewer serviceable skills. Though she had received what was equivalent to a high school GED, she wasn't good at handling money, knew next to nothing about computers, had abysmal typing skills, and her grasp of any finer social amenities was practically non-existent due to her own stubbornness, not through any fault of the nuns.
Kelly barely spoke for several months after her parents' murders, and hardly a night passed by that she didn't wake-up screaming from visions of two gunmen hunting her down. As a result, she had difficulty associating with others, and preferred to keep to herself.
Though the clothing she wore wasn't fashionable and had proved to be inadequate for the weather, it was clean, and she appeared somewhat respectable. Grocery checkouts didn't require a fashion degree, but she did need to be able to work a cash register and give back correct change, neither of which was a talent she'd picked up at the orphanage. What use would she have had for money there?

#MFRWHooks - 9/28/16 - Lessons in Love - Pam is overruled #DD #OfficeRomance


She needed a job, he needed a personal assistant. What could go wrong?

Welcome back to Book Hooks, a regular Wednesday feature! In this blog loop, we hope to provide you with some tantalizing tidbits in our books.

My submission for this week's Book Hooks is from my 8th novel, Lessons in Love.


Pam Weston didn't have many choices as far as employment went. Her prison sentence saw to that. With limited secretarial skills, and an even more limited budget, she never considered herself executive material. So, when she was ordered to report to the CEO of her company as his new personal assistant, she fully expected to be checking out the "Help Wanted" section of the paper before the day was over.

Robert Peterson knew his management style was not HR approved, but he believed in using the stick as well as the carrot. Employing the tenets of domestic discipline, he helped mold his personal assistants into confident women who recognized their own self-worth. Even so, his unorthodox methods were only one of the reasons many considered the position of his assistant to be a revolving door. To Rob's mind, Pamela Weston was perfect for his purposes, though given her past he expected convincing her to agree to his program would be a challenge.


In this scene, which occurs in chapter eight, Robert Peterson is treating his new executive assistant, Pam Weston, to dinner at his exclusive club where he escorts her to a private dining room so she can ask her questions. However, when Pam refuses to sit down, Rob stands. The moment he does, Pam sits and picks up her menu saying she's not sure what she's going order. Rob steps over and asks her to take his hand. When she finally obeys, he holds her close and assures her she's safe. Once she's calm, he continues with his agenda by asking her how many rules she thought she'd broken that day.


"I only broke one rule today, sir."
"Interesting you see it that way. So, which one did you break?"
She glanced up to meet his gaze. "I didn't obey you."
"All right. And, how many times did you disobey my instructions, do you think?"
Pam had a sinking feeling she knew where this was leading, and she didn't want to go there. "Too many to count. Can we sit down again, please? I'm a little dizzy."
"Very well."
However, instead of taking her back to the table, he led her over to one of the armchairs by the sofa and pulled her down on his thighs.
She tried to resist, but her refusal was halfhearted at best, and both of them knew it.
"You don't need to hold me on your lap. I'd be content to sit beside you."
"I disagree. At the moment, I think it's necessary you are held and reassured, and guess who gets to make that decision?"
"You do," she replied, somewhat sullenly.

"Correct." A knock at the door cut him off. "Come in."


Rob knows Pam is nervous, and took her to his club so she could ask him questions with far more privacy than a restaurant would offer. Unfortunately, the ambiance of his club is making her very uncomfortable as is the man himself.

Guest Post - 9/26/16 - "Her Drill Sergeant Dom" by Katherine Deane #Army #BDSM

Today we're showcasing Katherine Deane's new novel "Her Drill Sergeant Dom."

He knows how to motivate her- and it’s not with push-ups



Excerpt:

“You should always lock your footlocker, McCullen. Now, should we continue talking about your delightfully kinky pleasure reading, or talk about the truth, and what I might have to do to get it out of you?” He was just standing there waiting for her to make up her mind, one leg lazily crossed against the other as he leaned against the wall, looking more like a bored drill sergeant rather than a practiced dom about to whip her ass. Heat built between her legs again.
Should she trust him with the truth? What if he was one of the bad guys, and was in league with Cage? How was she to know whom to trust?  She would just have to suck it up. A little spanking and some extra PT wasn’t going to kill her. Granted, she would die of humiliation if Rose or someone else walked in and saw her. But Hunter seemed to be taking extra care to keep this moment between them private. When had she started calling him Hunter instead of Drill Sergeant? Oh yeah, probably the moment he whispered in her ear about whipping her ass, turning her into a complete puddle of lustful mush. A soft groan escaped her lips as she pictured herself calling him Drill Sergeant while he spanked her over and over.
“Are you okay?” He startled her from her musing.
“Yes, Drill Sergeant.”
“So, what’s it going to be, little girl? Truth or punishment followed by truth—and more punishment afterwards, because I don’t like saying things twice.” His features were a mask of neutrality as if he could care less either way.


Blurb:

Basic training is a killer—in more ways than one.
USA Today bestselling author Katherine Deane brings you a romantic suspense that will leave you gasping.
Twenty-four year old journalist Smyth McCullen is following the trail of a killer, right onto Fort Hancock Army training center.  After two murders of young women just out of basic, both under the same drill sergeant, Smyth knows she must join the Army to unravel the truth.
Little does she know that Basic is dangerous in more ways than one. Protecting her battle buddy, working through sixteen hours of grueling training a day, and following a potential bad guy, is nothing compared to falling for a dominant, undercover  drill sergeant.
Hunter Jones is undercover, looking into the potential murders under Drill Sergeant Cage’s direction.  He’s been through many deployments, both public, and some not so public. He’s interrogated bad guys, fallen behind enemy lines, and is prepared in every way to act as a drill sergeant and save another potential victim. What he’s not prepared for is the sexy, young strawberry blonde who is definitely not eighteen.
As their attraction grows, they march one step closer to the end of the session, and imminent danger.  Can Smyth find the killer in time? Can Hunter protect the next target, especially if it’s Smyth? 
Lovers of steamy romance, hot military heroes and plucky heroines will adore Katherine Deane’s hot new romantic suspense.


Her Drill Sergeant Dom is a fully written story with HEA and no cliffhangers.

Guest Post – 9/12/16 – Brilliant Cara Bristol interviews spanked wife Cadence Simmons #DD #Spanking

You may not have heard anything from me for a while, but today I'm returning with one of my favorite authors, Cara Bristol, who has provided us with Cadence Simmons' viewpoint on Domestic Discipline. Enjoy.


Character interview with spanked wife Cadence Simmons

Cara Bristol: You seem excited.
Cadence: I am. My husband is home! Rahm was in the military and after two overseas deployments, he’s home for good.
Cara Bristol: That’s wonderful. Do you have anything special planned?
Cadence: Just to reconnect and become a couple again.  I love that he’s home, but I know there’s going to be a bit of adjustment. I think Rahm will expect things to be the way they were before he left, and mostly they will, but some things are different now.
Cara Bristol: Like what?
Cadence:  While gone, I got used to doing a lot things on my own, making my own decisions. Rahm likes to be in control. I still like that, I still want him to be in charge, but well….
Cara Bristol: Well?
Cadence: I got my private investigator’s license!
Cara Bristol: Congratulations!
Cadence: Thank you. But Rahm is going to be really mad when he finds out. He didn’t want me to do it; he thinks it isn’t safe for me to go out on stakeouts alone. I don’t know how to tell him. The longer I wait, the madder he’ll be. And, well…we have a domestic discipline marriage. There will consequences for what I did. Rahm will consider it disobedient, dishonest, dangerous, and disrespectful.
Cara Bristol:  You are in a bind aren’t you?
Cadence: I’m afraid so.



Excerpt:

Taking a deep breath, she pushed into Rahm’s office. The door snicked shut. The click of doom.
Her heart and stomach fluttered in the way they always did when she had to confront a very pissed off Rahm. And he was. Very pissed off. She could tell from the tilt of his head, the set of his jaw.
“Lock the door,” he said.
After she turned the deadbolt, he stood and rounded the desk. “Is there something you want to say to me?” he asked.
“I had planned to tell you!” she said. Her knees knocked together, but she strove for a good show by stomping to the guest chair and plopping her butt into it. Then wished she hadn’t because now he towered over her, and the small metal plug he’d inserted in her ass before they’d left for work didn’t seem all that tiny. She shifted onto one hip.
He leaned against his desk and crossed his arms. “Tell me what?”
He knew. And she knew he knew, so why did a verbal confession seem to carry so much more weight? Why couldn’t they take their knowledge and fly away like pigs?
Because that wasn’t Rahm’s way. He insisted on a full accounting. Rahm’s way or the highway. Rahm’s way or her ass.
No, Rahm’s way and her ass. He would spank her over this. And it wouldn’t be a pretty- please-spank-me-again-it-hurts-so-good kind of paddling. But a wailing-begging-sleep-on-her- stomach-afterwards spanking.


Blurb:

Love, desire, domination, and submission. Two domestic discipline romances by USA Today bestselling author Cara Bristol in one volume.

Wife on the Lam
Janelle wants to take a luxury vacation for her wedding anniversary. Despite numerous hints, husband Brent misses all the clues and plans a business trip! Miffed, she flies off alone to a luxury resort. She’s going to celebrate—with or without him.
Brent didn’t have to work. He’d planned a second honeymoon to the luxury Cabana Resort. Janelle might have ruined his surprise, but he’s not going to let her ruin their anniversary, too. He has a little trick up his sleeve to take his errant wife in hand and get their marriage back on track.

Rahm’s Way

Before her military husband left for his tour of duty, Cadence Simmons relied on Rahm’s love, direction, and protection. His absence forced her to become more independent and make decisions for herself. After serving his country, he’s home for good and eager to resume their marriage as it was before. Only Cadence isn’t quite sure she wants things exactly as they were. Can domestic discipline guide this couple through some major changes?

#SatSpanks - 8/27/16 - Arrested by Love - Tiffany is ordered to prepare a switch #DD #Whipping


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 Chapter Four, Kyle Sinclair, a traffic patrol officer, has just proposed to the girl he's secretly loved, but avoided for years. He knows Tiffany Morgan has been infatuated with him since she was a little girl, but she came from a much higher social strata than his public school/middle class upbringing associated with. However, what the heart wants isn't always in line with what society deems appropriate.

Having finally overcome his doubts, Kyle gets down on one knee and presents Tiffany with a ring only to have her dissolve into tears before him. Confused, he starts to question her only to discover she'd lied for the past month about staying within the budget he'd set for her. Relieved her dismay wasn't the result for a more serious issue, but angry she'd thought lying to him was a more acceptable course than admitting failure, he gives her a choice. She can either accompany him quietly without fuss or whining, or they can stop seeing each other for a year.

Tiffany can't believe he'd stop seeing her simply because she'd overspent her budget, but Kyle promptly informs her he's not punishing her for overspending, but for lying and refusing to accept the consequences of her deceit.


            Kyle drove for over a half-hour, taking them to an excluded spot where he parked and just sat looking out the windshield for a few minutes.  Tiffany was totally silent.  She was stiff and wary, though no longer crying.  Unfortunately, he knew that wasn't going to last long.
            Wanting to be alone to get his thoughts and emotions together, he turned to her and said, "I want you to get out of the car, go over to that willow and select and prepare an appropriate switch that I can use.  It needs to be about a half-inch thick and flexible.  Once you have done that, I want you stand by that log and wait for me.  Do you understand what I am asking?"  At her small nod, he said, "Then go now, please."
            She very slowly opened the door of the car, shut it quietly then walked over to the tree he'd indicated.  He watched her run her fingers along each branch testing for the one she'd choose and knew she'd started crying again.  He shook his head.  He loved her with all his heart, but he couldn't let her get away with lying to him.  Not if he ever hoped to be able to trust her again.

 

Kyle doesn't like hurting Tiffany, though he knows he has to take her in hand if he's to make any progress in curbing her impulsive behavior. As his wife, she won't have the financial freedom to spend money like she's used to. He doesn't expect her to be perfect, and fully accepts she will overspend from time to time, but he needs her to understand that it's much better for her to own up to her mistakes than try to hide them beneath lies.

#SatSpanks - 8/20/16 - Past Interference - Showing is better than talking #DD #CorbinsBend


Sometimes you have to break the rules to get what you need.

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 she needs one.  

My submission for this week is an excerpt from my new spanking novella in the Corbin's Bend series, Past Interferencethe sequel to A Simple Misunderstanding.  It used to be available only as part of the Love in the Rockies anthology, but is now being sold as a single release.



In this scene, which occurs in Chapter Six, Eleanor Benson (Elly) has made more than a few mistakes, one of which results in her throat being injured when she experiences another run in with her ex-husband.  Having been cleared by the doctor to talk, Elly hesitates to talk through her issues with Jerry. Rather than push her he says he'll go back to work, but she knows it won't get any easier with time, so she calls him back saying postponing their discussion will only make her more nervous than she already was. So, Jerry offers to call into work then get them both a couple of drinks so they can talk undisturbed.


Given Colorado’s climate in February, Elly grew easily chilled, so Jerry fixed her a mug of Earl Grey tea and poured himself a cup of coffee, then sat beside her.
“Marcus said tea and honey would help soothe your throat.”
“Is that what you talked about? My throat?” she asked, bringing the steaming, aromatic fluid up to her nose and inhaling the unique citrusy fragrance deeply.
“We discussed the ways I could make you more comfortable. I wanted his take on your fear and what I could do to assuage it.”
She jerked her head up to stare at him. “You told him I asked to remove the word ‘obey’ from my wedding vows?”
Sitting back, he took a swallow of his coffee. “Not exactly. I mentioned how the changes that occurred in Arthur after you’d married him had left you uneasy and uncertain about marrying me, and asked if he had any recommendations.”
“What did he say?”
“That showing was better than talking.”

 

Aware that Jerry and Marcus were friends, Elly is still uneasy over the fact that Jerry discussed her issues with the doctor treating her.




M/F Domestic Discipline in Colorado.

Blurb:

Valentine's Day in Corbin's Bend.  As Elly Benson readies herself for her second wedding, the doubts and misgivings of any new bride-to-be are exacerbated by the abuse she suffered during her first marriage.


Though she's lived with Jerry Douglas for four months now, and been subject to his discipline more than once, Elly's first husband had been kind and careful with her, too, until the day she vowed to love, honor and obey him.  The lessons she's learned from the past make her doubt she can ever find happiness in the future.

#6BestHop - 8/14/16 - A Dom's Dilemma - Kelly reluctantly submits #BDSM #MedicalPlay


He demanded her obedience, but what she wanted was his love.

It's the last day of January and Sunday's Six of the Best again. That means I get to share another 6 paragraphs from one of my books.  Yay!

My submission for this week is from my 4th book, A Dom's Dilemma, a BDSM/spanking novel that is sometimes playful, sometimes serious and sometimes terrifying, published by Blushing Books.  Kelly and Jim, the two main characters, were secondary characters in Arrested by Love.  Though this story stands on its own, if you read Arrested by Love, you'll most likely recognize some of the scenes, since we see a little bit of Kyle and Tiffany in this book, too.



In this excerpt, near the end of Chapter Five, Jim Evans and Kelly Franklin are together at "The Velvet Chains," a BDSM club where they met that evening.  Kelly is receiving some aftercare after a session of intensive medical play she did with Jim that seemed a lot more real than play.  Aftercare is an important part of the BDSM experience.  Both the Dom and the sub seek reassurance from the other.  Jim enjoys holding Kelly, and she likes being in his arms, so this is a quiet period of reflection and getting to know each other. Problem is, when Jim asks Kelly a question she really doesn't want to answer, her evasion serves as an admission she's lied to him.

Normally, a Dom would punish a sub for that infraction, but Jim has told Kelly he'll give her a onetime pass. Before they do anything else, however, he suggests they get to know each other a little better.  He begins by asking her some pertinent questions, which eventually lead to the topic of trust.  When Kelly admits that she probably trusts him more not to hurt her than anyone else, he's pleased, but remains cautious.  He informs her, in no uncertain terms, that he can be a controlling SOB who expects a lot, but he gives back in return.  If she chooses to remain as his sub, he'll expect her to be open and honest with about everything in her life. Even those things she might not want to share, but for the moment he's content to simply know more about her life until she admits she's still sore. Jim promptly takes her to task for not telling him earlier.


             He doubted her face could have looked more dismayed.  "Would I have to go back to the medical station, Sir?" she asked, her voice soft and uncertain even as her nose wrinkled with obvious distaste.  He gave the offending member a firm tap.
            "You have to do whatever I say.  It's as simple as that, sub."
            "Yes, Sir," she replied, laying her head against his chest and watching him warily.
            "Better."  He gave her an approving nod.  "Now, as it happens, I think I've got everything I'll need in my pocket already.  The lighting here is far from ideal, but if you want to risk it, I can examine you through feel and reaction.  Fair warnin' though, doin' that will probably make my inspection more painful."
            "May I stay seated on your lap and keep my blanket on, Sir?"
            Jim started to shake his head, then reconsidered.  "You goin' shy on me, Kelly girl?"


Kelly knows she makes a lousy sub.  She has a temper and a mouth that constantly get her into trouble, but she sees something in Jim that makes her want more of the type of mastering only he could give her, except she's not sure she can give him all the honesty he expects in return.
