Guest Post - 11/24/17 - Taming Lady Lydia by Felicity Brandon #Regency #SpankingRomance

 A Regency Lady requires a firm hand…

He looks at me, his face burning with intent. “Know this Lydia,” he says in an even tone. “I have grown immensely fond of you these last days. I will care for you, look after your needs, and be here for you, but whenever you choose to overstep the line, I will punish you.”



Excerpt:

The depth of the authority in his voice stirs me, sending energy coursing around my body. It pools at the apex of my legs, causing delicious tingles there. “I am sorry to have pressed the point,” I say, and I mean it, although I cannot help but wonder if it is his discipline which I really crave and have missed this last week.
I swear he senses the answer as he reaches for me. He sinks the fingers of his right hand into my hair and draws my body toward him. “Lydia,” he says, his voice almost a low growl. “Are you being intentionally disrespectful, I wonder?”
A silent gasp leaves my mouth as I look upon him.
“Oh, so you are…” he says with a knowing smile. “That is what this is about…”
I flush, knowing that there is little point denying what we both already know to be true. I glance up to him, my eyes imploring the messages I long to say. He pulls me closer, pressing my head against his warm chest. “Have you missed me, my love?” His voice is a deep murmur into my right ear.
“Yes…” I just about manage.
“And so you have chosen to be intentionally disobedient, to garner my attention?”
I shift my head, looking wildly into his face. “It is not my intention, My Lord,” I whimper.
“Oh, really, little one?” he asks, as that brow arches once again. “I think that is an untruth. I think you did intend to disobey me, and I think you did so because you have missed my discipline. Am I correct?”
I am trembling as I reply, utterly startled by his ability to read me. “Perhaps, yes, My Lord, but I did not want for you to be angry with me.”
He smiles. “Lydia,” he coos. “I am not angry. But you and I both know what happens to naughty, disobedient young ladies, don’t we?”
My mouth parts reflexively. “Will you spank me?” I whimper.
“Yes,” he says, pulling me toward him as he reseats himself. “I realise that I have been remiss in my duties to you, and for that I apologise. I intend to make amends right this moment.”
In an instant he pulls me forward and down toward his lap. “But, My Lord!” I exclaim as I lurch headfirst over his breeches. “Not here, Thomas! What if somebody finds us?”
“We have had this conversation, Lydia,” he says firmly as he hoists me into position, “and I have assured you that I will spank you either with, or without, an audience.”
I gasp, feeling the skirts of my gown, petticoat, and stays dragged up my back, leaving my behind exposed and vulnerable. Almost immediately, his hand lands against my bare skin, the sound resonating around the study. I squeeze my eyes shut, stunned by the escalation of events. I pray silently that none of the staff will hear us and enter the room unexpectedly.
A further four swats are landed on my bottom, and they are hard and intense spanks. I am forced to bear each one, feeling the sting and then warmth they leave after his palm has left. From this angle behind his desk I can see very little, except for the expensive rug at my fingertips.
As the next strike lands, I hear Thomas’ voice from over my head. “Why are you being spanked, Lydia?” he asks.
I notice his voice is calm, but there is just the slight edge of arousal laced there.
“I was disobedient, My Lord,” I reply, my own voice trembling as I do.
“Yes,” he agrees, swatting me hard on the rear again. “You disobeyed me in order to get the attention you require, instead of coming to me and telling me about your needs.”
His hand lands on my behind again. “And for that reason, little one,” he says firmly, “you will receive a sound spanking on your bare bottom, and you will thank me for it.”
I whimper as the next strike lands, catching the pulsating need between my legs. “Yes, My Lord,” I moan from over his lap. “Thank you.”
Five swats land quickly, and instinctively I mean to get up, arching my back as I try to move.
His hand holds me down decisively. “You will stay over my lap, Lydia,” he calls out, and I flinch at the volume, hoping that nobody else will hear him. “You need this punishment, do you not?”
“Yes,” I whine, wincing as the next spank lands.
“Yes, you do,” he says, reaffirming my own thoughts. “So just take it, little one.”
I swallow hard, loathing the way he calls me his little one as he spanks me. The label, of course, helps to reinforce my subservience to him. The onslaught continues, and the stinging sensation is intense. He pushes me on, the utter indignation of the punishment both riling and arousing me. At some point I lose count of the swats, feeling the tension between my legs growing and building. I know I am wet, and I long secretly for Thomas to explore me there.
His palm eventually pauses, pressing itself against the warmth of my bare bottom. “How do you feel now, my love?” His voice is filled with passion.
“Thank you for my spanking, Thomas,” I murmur, unsure what else to say.
I hear him laugh, and slowly, teasingly, his fingers dip between my hot cheeks.
“Well done, my love,” he soothes, as one and then two digits slip against my wetness.
I mewl and groan, loving the intensity of his touch already.
“So wet and beautiful,” he whispers adoringly. “I yearn for our wedding night, Lydia, when I can finally possess you as a man should claim his wife.”



Blurb:

When eighteen-year-old Lady Lydia Franklin becomes the ward of Lord Thomas Markham after her father’s death, she quickly discovers that the wealthy, handsome gentleman believes in strict discipline for wayward young women. Her penchant for naughtiness soon earns her a sound spanking, but despite his willingness to punish her as often and as shamefully as he feels it necessary, Thomas’ firm-handed correction leaves Lydia helplessly aroused.

Though he is charged with ensuring that Lydia’s innocence is preserved, Thomas cannot help but notice her body’s response to his stern chastisement. It isn’t long before she is lying naked across his lap as she is spanked thoroughly and then brought to a blushing climax, and over the coming days he sets about teaching her what it means to surrender herself completely to a dominant man.

Being taken in Thomas’ arms proves more pleasurable than Lydia ever dreamed, and she finds herself imagining a future as his wife rather than his ward, but the dark rumors about his past are hard to ignore. When he asks for her hand she agrees to be his bride, but once the wedding is over will the bond between them hold firm or will it all end in scandal and heartbreak?

Publisher’s Note: Taming Lady Lydia includes spankings and sexual scenes. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.

#MFRWHooks - 11/22/17 - A Naughty New Year - They're having a party #MFRWAuthor #Mischief


She needed a savior. He wanted a little girl. So, he made her an offer she couldn't refuse.

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 Christmas novella A Naughty New Year, which is part of the "Mischief Under the Mistletoe" anthology. The novella is in two parts with the first centering around a New Year's Eve party Kelly Evans and her husband Jim are throwing for their best friends Kyle and Tiffany Sinclair and the fact champagne looks an awful lot like ginger ale.



Kelly Evans is nearly six months pregnant when her Dom husband, Jim, suggests they invite their closest friends over for a private New Year's Eve party. Just a friendly get together, nothing kinky, and no champagne for either of the girls, since Kelly's friend, Tiffany, was a month along further than she was. Given it's New Year's Eve, Kelly feels Jim's no-champagne edict isn't fair, but Jim warns her if she goes against his wishes, she will be punished. Though Kelly understands Jim's reasoning, she still feels he's merely being over-protective, and as much as she loves him, a sip of champagne never hurt anyone.

Their friends due to arrive in any second, Kelly steps out of their bedroom in her party dress. 


"You're a sight for sore eyes, doll."
"Think so?" she asked giving a playful twirl.
"Oh, yeah. I do." Then he moved forward to loosely wrap his arms about her. "You feelin' okay?"
"I'm fine. Why?"
"You're lookin' a little flushed. You worked your butt off for this party and I'm worried you might have overdone things a bit."
She stepped in closer to him, put her hands on his hips and gazed up at him with a dazzling smile. "I'm perfect, and I can't wait to show you just how perfect I am, later."
"It's a date," he replied, grinning back at her, tempted to sneak in a kiss when the doorbell rang.
* * *
Kelly turned to open the door, but Jim tightened his grip. "Unh uh," he warned. "That's what husbands are for. Your job is to plop down, relax and look beautiful. Now go do as you're told," he ordered giving her backside a gentle swat.
In a show of compliance, Kelly reluctantly took a step toward the living room, but remained in the hallway. He was being bossy and overprotective, but she wasn't about to be so rude as to not greet their guests.
"Happy New Year. Come on in, folks," Jim greeted as he opened the door wide.
"Happy New Year!" Kyle and Tiffany replied in a chorus. Then Tiffany added with a giggle of delight. "It's snowing."
Kelly stepped forward to take her friend's coat and gave her a hug before she brushed away a few of the tiny crystal flakes slowly melting in Tiffany's red hair. "White glitter on crimson silk. Pretty. It must be falling down hard. Your hair would have been veiled in white if you'd stayed out much longer."
"I don't care," Tiffany confessed, returning Kelly's hug. "I love the snow."
"So do I," Kelly admitted, catching Jim's warning frown. Yeah, yeah. She hadn't obediently dropped into a chair like he'd ordered. Too bad. Complimenting her friend was more important.



Kelly adores Jim, but she needs to convince him that pregnancy has not turned her into an invalid. She's perfectly capable of doing all the things she did before.




Note about the characters in this story: 

Kelly and Jim are two of my favorite characters. Kelly can be such a brat at times and Jim gives her a lot of leeway, but even he has limits. This story is the latest, chronologically, in their time line, though by the time its published it should be the fourth in a series subtitled Unexpected Consequences.

So, if you want to know how their sometimes stormy relationship started, they first appeared in Arrested by Love as secondary characters, but like all good primary characters insisted on their own story, which developed into A Dom's Dilemma. Both books, originally released in 2010, are being numbered, reedited and reissued with new covers in late November, along with a new third book, entitled Learning to be Little: Kelly's Story. Though the newest book in the series, Learning to be Little begins immediately after A Dom's Dilemma, it then takes the reader into Kelly's past, where she shares her introduction to age play and BDSM with Graham White in a sequel/prequel. The story is a departure for me in that the majority of its chronological time line takes place before the two books I've already published, but it belongs in the middle of the series. I expect two, possibly three more books in the series to be available in the near future.

#WIPitUP - 11/22/17 - Learning to be Little - Kelly has a decision to make #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"  It is a story about Kelly Franklin's first immersion into BDSM with a Daddy Dom.

Similar to Kelly's experience, Learning to be Little is my first attempt at depicting the dynamics of age play, and because it occurs in Kelly's past with her first, but not last, Dom, it is also a little different from other age play stories available today. However, I hope readers who enjoy age play and D/s will find their journey into Kelly's past an entertaining, sometimes funny, sometimes poignant, adventure. Though the manuscript has been accepted by Blushing Books, and is scheduled to be published on November 27, until it's published, I consider it a WIP.



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 walking the streets. When she is approached by a "gentlemanly stranger", who invites her to dinner, Kelly accompanies her new "customer" into a fancy restaurant with well-founded suspicion and a bit of an attitude that could get her into trouble if she isn't careful. However, despite her uncertainty over the gentleman's intentions, Kelly does her best to do what he wants. As a reward, he treats her to some candy, scolding her when she finishes by licking her fingers.


"Proper young ladies do not lick their fingers," he scolded, placing the cloth back in his pocket. She thought he would release her hand then, but he merely stared at her for a long moment before he asked, "How would you like to live with me?"
Kelly frowned. Though the man seemed genuinely considerate of her well-being, he was still a stranger who'd refused to answer most of her questions. He hadn't even told her his given name, saying instead that she should call him sir.
At her hesitation, he leaned closer. "I want to take care of you, Kelly. You'll have your own room, plenty to eat, suitable clothes to wear. I will see to your every need, so you will want for nothing. I will also further your education by having you take classes at some point to ensure you gain the skills you'll require to find a proper job when we eventually part."
Interesting. He spoke of parting before they'd even gotten together. Kelly knew there had to be a catch, but she couldn't imagine what it might be. Gazing up at him, she asked, "So, are you expecting to throw me back on the streets when you're finished with me?"
His frown deepened as he glared at her. "You are never to return to the streets. Is that clear?"
She shrugged. "What am I to do for money, then?"
"Cash won't be an issue, since I will provide for you. But, if you're worried about your future, I will say that I intend to establish a trust fund for you, which you may draw upon when you turn twenty-one. You're eighteen, so two hundred dollars a week should provide you with a nest egg of around fifty thousand dollars that I will expect you to build upon once you've got a respectable job."
Two hundred dollars this week would have kept her cozy. So, what was the catch? "Will you be sleeping with me?"
"I will see to your every need, Kelly," he repeated slowly, as if she had trouble understanding him. "Though I doubt we will share the same bed for an entire night."




Though Graham White has been nothing but a complete gentleman, Kelly doesn't know the man, and living with a stranger is totally different from accepting a dinner invitation from him. Still he was offering her a lot of money, so what was the catch?

#SatSpanks - 11/18/17 - Learning to be Little - Kelly discovers jealousy for the first time #Ageplay #BDSM



When childhood is denied you, sometimes you need to learn how to be little

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 upcoming release scheduled for November 27. Similar to Kelly's experience, Learning to be Little is my first attempt at depicting the dynamics of age play, and because it occurs in Kelly's past with her first, but not last, Dom, it is also a little different from other age play stories available today. However, I hope readers who enjoy age play and D/s will find their journey into Kelly's past an entertaining, sometimes funny, sometimes poignant, adventure. 



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 falls on hard times and is taken in by Graham White as his adult little girl. Graham is a strict daddy, but he's also extremely generous with his affections unless Kelly is having one of her naughty days. And, unfortunately, it looks like this day Kelly is going to be very naughty.


On their first Wednesday outing together, Daddy laid out his rules. She wasn't supposed to talk to strangers, even if they spoke to her, unless he gave his permission and introduced her. If he did, she was expected to be polite but reserved, answer any questions with proper respect, but not pose any queries of her own. She was also to keep her eyes lowered except when she was answering a direct question.
Unfortunately, Kelly was naturally curious and outspoken. Two traits which didn't bode well for her on the Wednesday after they'd agreed to continue their relationship for a minimum of two more years. That's when they were approached by another daddy, whose adult little girl appeared to be a few years older than Kelly.
"Graham. I haven't seen you for ages. How are you?"
"Good, Trent. And you?"
"Excellent. This is my new young miss, Susie." He gave the pouting young woman beside him a nudge. "Say hello and make your curtsey to Mr. White, Susie."
Beneath her winter coat, Susie was dressed in a light blue woolen shift with a frilly apron front reminiscent of Alice in Wonderland. Too cute for words, she dipped into a quick, girlish curtsey and said, "Hello, Mr. White."
"Good afternoon, Susie. That is a very pretty dress you're wearing."
Kelly narrowed her eyes as the other girl giggled, gave another curtsey, and replied, "Thank you, sir." Too cute for words all right, and loaded with enough sugar to cause diabetes.




Kelly enjoys going out with her new daddy, but she doesn't care for other little misses flirting with him. Unfortunately, rudeness is never acceptable as Kelly knows and will be most firmly reminded again if she doesn't change her attitude quickly.

Note about the characters in this story: 

Kelly is one of my favorite characters. She can be such a brat at times, which is something her champion Graham White refuses to tolerate. The majority of this story is the earliest, chronologically, since it occurs in Kelly's past, but it is the most recent book in the series. Confused much?

So, if you want to know more about this bratty, sometimes submissive adult little girl, she first appears in Arrested by Love as a secondary character, but like all good primary characters she insisted on having her own story with her new Dom, which developed into A Dom's Dilemma. Both books, originally released in 2010, are being numbered, reedited and reissued with new covers in late November, along with Learning to be Little: Kelly's Story. Its cover is pictured above.

Though Learning to be Little will be the newest book in the series, it actually begins immediately after A Dom's Dilemma, then takes the reader into Kelly's past in a sequel/prequel. The story is a departure for me in that the majority of its chronological time line takes place before the two books I've already published, but it belongs in the middle of the series. I expect two, possibly three more books in the series to be available in the near future.

#MFRWHooks - 11/15/17 - Past Interference - Elly challenges Arthur #CorbinsBend #MFRWAuthor


It's Book Hooks Wednesday!  Yay!  And I'm sharing an excerpt from my spanking novella in the Corbin's Bend series, Past Interferencethe sequel to A Simple Misunderstanding. Past Interference was originally part of the Corbin's Bend Valentine's Day collection "Love in the Rockies," but is now being sold separately.

What she needed was the opposite of what she wanted.



In this scene, which occurs near the beginning of Chapter Two, Eleanor Benson (Elly) is six days away from getting married again, and her doubts are eating her alive.  After suffering through a bout of stress-related migraines, she's finally gotten up enough courage to tell her husband-to-be that she's not sure she wants to get married again.  Jerry knows Elly is nervous, but believed he'd managed to convince her he is nothing at all like her first husband, Arthur, who abused her.  Unfortunately, he's beginning to realize Elly's fear of her past may ruin their future together, so he suggests they sit down and discuss why she's having second thoughts, and why he wants to marry her. Elly insists she's not afraid of Jerry, but when he realizes she hadn't been afraid of her first husband when they got married, either, he seeks to understand what happened between them.


“I didn’t intend to disappoint or shame him.”
“Of course not. Do you remember why he spanked you the second time?”
“I argued with him, and he took exception to my tone.”
“What did you argue about?”
Elly glanced up to meet his gaze. “My working.” She and Jerry had a similar disagreement, but for a slightly different reason. He didn’t like the thought of her driving to Denver or Boulder during the winter. She could work out of their home, if she wished, but he preferred she didn’t commute. Elly gave in, but planned to broach the topic again in the spring.
“He wanted me to quit my job. I liked being a receptionist, but he believed all my attention should be focused on him, and my working reflected badly on his ability to provide for me. I pointed out that a lot of women worked, and their husbands didn’t seem to mind.”
“And he spanked you for saying that?”
“No, but I got a warning my tone bordered on disrespect.”
“Did it?”
“According to our established rules, yes. I deliberately challenged his authority.”
“So, what was the tipping point?”
“When I told him I thought his attitude was a relic from the dark ages, and he had the social conscience of a Neanderthal.”
Jerry choked. “Yeah. I can imagine he took exception to that.”
“He took more than exception. He took a wooden spoon to my rear end and told me I acted no better than a spoiled brat who needed to be taken in hand.”
“And you disagreed?”
Elly shrugged. “I didn’t much care for his punishment, but he had a point. I was acting like a spoiled brat, because I was mad and didn’t like him telling me what to do.” She stared at Jerry. “I should have the right to work if I want.”

 

Elly wants Jerry to insist her fears are foolish, but he's not about to do that.  He loves her, and he takes her concerns seriously.  So, he's determined they discuss her worries and address them before things get out of hand. However, her first marriage was so disastrous, she's terrified to try again.




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.



Past Interference is available at the following locations.

I also have a page on my web site where I am offering a sample of the first two chapters. If you're interested, visit either the Spanking Romance or Past Interference page in the Over 18 section of my website.

WIPitUP - 11/15/17 - A Naughty New Year - Predictability breeds assumptions #Holiday #Spanking Romance


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  titled "A Naughty New Year, " which is part of the "Mischief Under the Mistletoe" anthology. The novella is in two parts with the first centering around a New Year's Eve party Kelly Evans and her husband Jim are throwing for their best friends Kyle and Tiffany Sinclair and the fact champagne looks an awful lot like ginger ale.



Kelly Evans is nearly six months pregnant when her Dom husband, Jim, suggests they invite their closest friends over for a private New Year's Eve party. Just a friendly get together, nothing kinky, and no champagne for either of the girls, since Kelly's friend, Tiffany, was a month along further than she was. Given it's New Year's Eve, Kelly feels Jim's no-champagne edict isn't fair, but Jim warns her if she goes against his wishes, she will be punished. Though Kelly understands Jim's reasoning, she still feels he's merely being over-protective, and as much as she loves him, a sip of champagne never hurt anyone. That is until now.


When the other couple had left, Kelly regarded Jim with an uncertain look. "Would you have really punished Tiffany if she'd stayed?"
"You ever hear me make an idle threat?"
"No, Sir."
"I'd say you got your answer, then. Why don't we go to bed? We can clean up in the morning."
"Bed?"
"Bedroom," he corrected. "You and I have some unfinished business to see to before we go to sleep. Wouldn't you agree?"
"Are you angry?" she asked softly.
Jim understood Kelly sought some reassurance from him, but he'd already buffered his response quite a bit in the kitchen and wasn't sure further comforting would be in her best interest. So, he folded his arms across his chest and stared down at her. "No. Not angry. Did you drink champagne tonight?"
"Yes, Sir." She bent her head as her voice emerged with the tentativeness of a frightened child.
"Then, I suggest you go ready yourself while I fetch the cane."
Her head snapped up. "Cane? But you said you'd use your hand."
"No. I only stated the number you'd be receivin', not how I intended to deliver 'em."
Eyes welling with tears, she gazed at him. "You said five whacks. Level one punishments are swats given on a bare bottom with your hand. You didn't say anything about a cane."
"The word 'whack' is generic, Kelly. You know that. I never meant for it to imply that all your punishments would be hand to butt."



Kelly had known there would be consequences for drinking. Jim had warned her. Though he understands she wanted to party a little on New Year's Eve, the fact she decided she'd risk displeasing him and accept a spanking in order to do what she wanted made him think he needed to be a little less predictable in his punishments.




Note about the characters in this story: 

Kelly and Jim are two of my favorite characters. Kelly can be such a brat at times and Jim gives her a lot of leeway, but even he has limits. This story is the latest, chronologically, in their time line, though by the time its published it should be the fourth in a series subtitled Unexpected Consequences.

The story is a departure for me in that the majority of its chronological time line takes place before the two books I've already published, but it belongs in the middle of the series. I expect two, possibly three more books in the series to be available in the near future.
