#HornyHDay - 8/20/14 - A Dom's Dilemma - Pleasure is in they eye of the beholder #BDSM #SpankingRomance



Wanting and receiving can be two entirely different things.

This material is NSFW (Not Safe For Work). If you’re not over 18, please explore elsewhere.

Welcome back to Horny Hump Day, a regular Wednesday feature! In this blog loop, we hope to provide you with tiny erotic tidbits of the most sexy and sensuous moments in our books. Just 3 sentences.  And boy is that hard to do, sometimes....

My post for this Wednesday is from my 4th book, A Dom's Dilemma, an erotic BDSM/spanking novel 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.


For this selection on Horny Hump Day, I'm sharing scene in A Dom's Dilemma near the beginning of Chapter Six.  Jim and Kelly are just starting to get to know each other when Jim discovers Kelly is still sore from the enema and examination he gave her a half-hour ago.  She knows that means he will want to examine and treat her, but she really wants to avoid him touching her back there again, if it's at all possible.  It isn't, but Jim compromises by making the experience as pleasurable as he can.  However, he's a Dom, so there are some rules Kelly will need to follow.  Rules he fully expects her to break.


            Smiling inwardly at her contented expression, Jim continued to slowly move his finger in and out of her.  Partly to make sure the medicine reached as far as he wanted, and partly to discover if she might find the activity pleasurable.
            Within seconds, her back and tummy muscles tightened, so he used his thumb to tease the small bud attempting to hide from him.


Jim is into control, not pain, and he wants Kelly to find pleasure in everything they do together, but the Dom in him insists upon taking the lead.  Things will happen his way, and on his terms.  End of story.  Even so, Jim finds a great deal of pleasure in Kelly's response, and her trust is of paramount importance to him.

Guest Post - Thianna D. - Breathe Each Other In - Final Book in the All They Ever Needed trilogy #DD #GayRomance #Spanking


Thianna D. is here to share an excerpt from her newest release, "Breathe Each Other In," the third and final book in the All They Ever Needed Trilogy.

For Logan & Christian, one thing makes all the difference

While the outside world might try to undermine them, Logan and Christian’s relationship just grows stronger. In this, the final part of the All They Ever Needed trilogy, their lives take an unexpected turn.

Christian takes to heart everything he learns from Logan’s father and as he and Logan go forward in their DD relationship, he finds that he is willing to not just take on the mantle of Head of House, but to embrace it. With Logan graduating from college, Christian takes the next logical step and asks his boyfriend to move in.

Even with the stress of student teaching and trying to figure out what to do after graduation, Logan leaps at the chance to live with the man he loves. As the pressure of graduation begins to get to him, the only thing to keep him grounded is the amazing man at his side.

Those closest to them make huge changes in their own lives and when an unexpected job offer lands in Logan’s lap, the two have to make a life altering decision. No matter which way they go, they need to give something up. Play it safe and stay home or accept the job and move away from their families? When it comes to decision time, there is one thing they are not willing to part with. That one thing makes all the difference in the world.


Enjoy this little domestic discipline discussion between Christian and Logan’s father:

“Have you considered how you are going to start?” Gregory asked as they removed the last of the destroyed siding from his car.

“Start what?” Christian asked, his mind on the large piece of scrap metal in his hands.

“Your DD relationship with my son.”

Surprised, Christian placed the metal onto the heap and shook his head. “No. He won’t be home until June, so I figured we had plenty of time to figure that out.”

“True,” he said, walking around the car. “On the other hand, if you start before he comes home, you might find it easier to settle into your role.”

Well, there was a layer he hadn’t considered. “How do you do it long distance?” The confusion in his voice was evident, even to him. But Gregory never made him feel stupid for asking a question.

“It’s doing the same things. Setting boundaries and making sure he sticks to them. You will also want to choose a disciplinary action to use if he doesn’t.”

“What am I supposed to do, make him write lines?” Christian asked in amusement before remembering that Kimberley had mentioned she had to write lines a lot in the beginning of her and Gregory’s marriage.

“Possibly. Or make him stand in a corner and think about what he did.”

“How will I know he did it?”

“You stay on the phone with him. Believe me. Neither Kim nor Logan are good at covering their emotions. His voice will give him away. Plus, I know my son. If you tell him to stand in a corner, he might ask why, but if you insist, he’ll do it. Of course, you won’t see the glare he sends at the phone when he does so,” he added in amusement.

Spluttering a laugh, Christian walked over and crashed onto one of the sofas. “It all seems so simple and so impossibly difficult at the same time.”

“Yep. Both are true. And strangely enough, until you actually have to discipline him for something and he accepts it, you won’t really notice a difference. It will feel like you’re going through the motions. But that moment will come where you go, ‘ah, shit, I’m in charge.’ And it will change you in a really valid way. You’ll feel it, Logan will feel it, and your relationship will be better for it even though it felt like hell for those few minutes or hours.” Walking over, Gregory grabbed a couple sodas from the fridge and tossed him one. “And at the beginning you’ll second guess yourself a lot, Christian. It comes with the territory. But that first time the two of you butt heads?” He shook his head. “That moment when you wonder if you should continue down this road or give in? When you stick to your guns, not in a rough, mean way, but by continually plowing ahead, gently but firmly until he relents; that’s the moment you know what you got yourself into. And it feels amazing and a bit overwhelming. But most of all, it just feels right.”

Shaking his head, Christian drank half his soda quickly. “I think we’re on the right road and Logan is thrilled, but I’ve never done this before and—”

“Haven’t you?” he asked in amusement. “I saw you with my son in New York, Christian. You took control and you guided him out of his self-recrimination faster than I could have.”

“He still had you spank him.” The moment the words were out of his mouth, Christian regretted them. He never meant to bring them up, especially in that annoyed tone.

Chuckling, Gregory nodded as he leaned back. “Yes, I did. Do you know why?”

“He explained that he asked you to.”

“He did, and the two of you hadn’t gotten to the point where he could ask you.”

Startled, Christian looked up at him.

“Logan needed to let that go and I was the only one he thought could take that pain away. Believe me, Christian, those thoughts are changing. He sees you more as head of his house than he even did a couple months ago and he’s quite happy to have you do it. No matter if his ass gets paddled for it or not.”



All They Ever Needed trilogy:
     Book 1: As Natural As Breathing
     Book 2: Took My Breath Away
     Book 3: Breathe Each Other In


About the author:

Thianna D is a writer of both het and m/m erotic romance. Most of her works include BDSM or DD. Logan and Christian brought together the domestic discipline way of life, spanking in an erotic context, and two amazing characters she loves very much.

#SPeekSunday - 8/17/14 - A Simple Misunderstanding - Elly's had some unexpected visitors #CorbinsBend #SpankingRomance

For the Hot Days and Hotter Nights Blog Hop, click HERE.


He came to her rescue when she needed him most, almost to lose her when she disobeyed him.

Welcome to the Sneak Peek Sunday, where we share six paragraphs from a published novel or a work in progress.  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 week's excerpt is a sneak peek from my fourth spanking romance, A Simple Misunderstanding, which is the seventh book in the Corbin's Bend series.  I hope you enjoy it.

In this scene, which occurs near the beginning, Eleanor Benson (Elly) has some exciting news she wants to share with Gerald Douglas (Jerry).  She's seen Jerry in the dog park on an almost daily basis since she and her husband moved into Corbin's Bend, but only started opening up to him a few days ago.  As the Corbin's Bend vet, Jerry has expressed an interest in Elly's dog, Muffin.  His calm, steady manner soothes Elly's wounded spirit, and the fact his observant eyes seem to notice more about her than she'd like both attracts and frightens her.  All the same, he's the first person she thinks of when she has news to share.


            For once, Elly led their sojourn to the dog park rather than Muffin. She didn’t run, of course, and she’d taken care to dress appropriately, so Muffin could have a long, playful romp with Jack while Elly shared her news with Jerry, but she found it difficult to contain her eagerness. Arriving at least two hours earlier than normal, she crossed her fingers he’d show up and watched for the tall, lean figure of a man who’d been the first to make her smile at Corbin’s Bend.
As she approached the gate, Elly spotted the vet and his large, gentle dog as they left their home to join her and Muffin. She sighed with relief and greeted Jerry Douglas with a huge grin when he stepped forward to slide his card into the gate’s security system. He hadn’t fastened his coat, but the weather wasn’t that nippy and she rather enjoyed seeing even the briefest outline of his trim waist and firm abs beneath the burgundy turtleneck he wore.
She’d been gazing at the way his long, lean fingers ensured the latch was secure when he said, “Well, you’re looking mighty tickled about something today, Miss Elly. Care to share?”
With a pleased nod he’d noticed, she undid Muffin’s lead and released her to play as she shoved her gloved hands in her pockets and stood on tiptoe. “We had some guests today.”
He laughed. “If I’d known having guests would make you so happy, I’d have been over at your house on a daily basis.”
Her smile faltered. “No. You must never do that.”

 

Jerry already suspects Elly's husband is harsher with her than he should be and wants to help her, but he is unable to intervene until Elly can admit she and Arthur are having problems.



M/F Domestic Discipline in Colorado.

Blurb:

Though Arthur and Eleanor Benson have been practicing domestic discipline for three months since their wedding, he insists moving to Corbin's Bend, where domestic discipline is the norm rather than the exception, will revitalize their marriage. Elly has doubts, but since Arthur is the undisputed head of their household, they move. However, once Arthur becomes immersed in a community where spanking is not only permitted, but encouraged, his personality undergoes a dramatic change. Accusing his submissive wife of being lazy, disorganized and disobedient, he employs creative methods of pain and humiliation to mold Elly from the imperfect woman he married into the perfect woman he desires. And Elly finds herself a virtual prisoner in her own home, accountable only to the man who rules her life with a cane.

In his years as a vet, Jerry Douglas has seen what abuse does to animals, and he recognizes those same signs in Elly Benson during her daily escape to the dog park with her tiny poodle. Jerry steadfastly supports the tenets of domestic discipline and enjoys the freedom Corbin's Bend offers its residents, but he remains fiercely protective of anyone in need of a champion. And when he witnesses evidence of harsh handling, his instinct is to rush in and rescue. Problem is Elly Benson is a married and consenting adult who insists all her bruises and welts are nothing more than a simple misunderstanding between her and her husband, until the day Arthur Benson takes his authority and discipline one-step too far, endangering Elly's life.




A Simple Misunderstanding is available at the following locations.

#SatSpanks - 8/16/14 - Arrested by Love - Kyle warns Tiffany with a mere love tap #SpankingRomance #DD

For the Hot Days and Hotter Nights Blog Hop, click HERE.


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 she needs one.  

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 Tiffany tearfully complies, Kyle insists she tell him why she is being punished, but Tiffany feels Kyle is being unfair, so she tries to plead her case.  Not a smart move when you're lying bare bottomed over a man's lap.


            "Tiffany, are you going to argue with me about this now?"
            "No, sir," she answered a little sullenly.
            "Smart choice.  Now given that I am concerned for your safety and feel you recklessly endangered your life with your shenanigans today, do you believe my punishment fair?"
            She gave a little snort at that, and he responded with a light smack on her buttocks.
            "Ow," she murmured, turning back to scowl up at him.
            "That, sweetheart, was a love tap compared to what I'm about to give you.  Now, answer the question, please."

 

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.

Frisky Friday - 8/15/14 - A Dom's Dilemma - Kelly fears she'll be caught #BDSM #SpankingRomance

For the Hot Days and Hotter Nights Blog Hop, click HERE.


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 is seeing 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.  Unable to separate from him entirely, she swipes a bottle of shampoo and after requesting a couple of plastic bags, she secrets the purloined goods in her handbag.  Jim suspects what she's done, and doesn't mind, but he's not above teasing her a little, either.


            When they pulled up in front of her building, Kelly invited Jim up for a "cup of coffee," only to face another disappointment when he declined, claiming he had work to do.  She knew his job as a detective required him to read a lot of reports and case follow ups, and accepted that.  However, she was still surprised when he got out of the car and opened the door for her.  Kyle often treated her like a lady, but not every Dom did.
            Without a word, Jim clasped her elbow and removed her large, leather handbag from her grasp.  Recalling what she'd put in it, Kelly quickly tried to grab it back.
            "No, no," he said, moving the voluminous, black bag out of her reach by draping its cross-body strap over his opposite shoulder.  "A gentleman never allows a lady to carry somethin' heavy, when he is practically empty-handed."
            "You're not empty-handed.  You've got my case."
            He lifted the small carrying case he held.  "What this thing?  A mere trifle."
            "But that's my purse," she implored, looking longingly at the shoulder bag hanging well out of her reach now.  "Men don't carry purses."


Jim realizes after their intense weekend together, Kelly is likely to go through sub drop, and he hopes to lessen the impact a little by leaving her laughing and happy.

Hot Days and Hotter Nights - #Bloghop #FreeExcerpt #Prizes



It's August, so if you live in the northern hemisphere you know it's hot.  But the heat we're talking about here has more to do with body temperature than the weather.  In this hop, we want you to get hot and bothered, and we aim to do everything we can to make you that way.  Why?  Because we write the spicy novels that leave you panting for more.  At least that's our intent.

For my part to help increase your body temperature, I'm offering a reader's choice from any one of my eBooks.


You can read blurbs, excerpts, reviews etc. for each book by visiting my website at: http://www.kathrynrblake.com and clicking on the banners listed on the home page.

And to help whet your appetite, I'll offer an excerpt from my latest novel, A Simple Misunderstanding.


Jerry has just returned from the dog park after Elly returned his jacket.  He's even more certain now that her husband is mistreating her, so he's decided to call the man who serves as the head of Corbin's Bend housing committee as well as Jerry's friend and mentor.

After Jerry got Jack fed and settled, he called Brent’s office.
“Carmichael.” That was Brent. All business and direct when events required quick results.
“Brent, it’s Jerry.”
“Hi, Jerry.” Jerry imagined his mentor tilting back in his chair. “What can I do for you?”
“I’d like to talk to you about Mr. and Mrs. Benson. Mrs. Benson, actually.”
“What about her?”
“I’ve gotten her to loosen up a little, and though I don’t have any proof, I think her husband might be abusing her. Yesterday, she sported some serious bruises on her wrists, and today she had difficulty walking. I fear I’m responsible. I tried to keep her talking to me, which made her late, and since she appeared cold, I lent her my coat. I believe Mr. Benson took exception to both those unusual developments.”
“Did she say so?”
“Not directly, but she did admit she got punished for not dressing properly for the weather.”
“Jerry….”
“I know. I would have spanked her for going outside with only a sweater on, too, if she’d been mine to take care of, but I wouldn’t have made her so sore she couldn’t walk.”
Brent Carmichael paused, and Jerry suspected his friend was struggling to be tactful. Brent was naturally protective of the people in Corbin’s Bend. No doubt the thought of one of theirs being abused stuck in his craw as well. After a moment, he spoke. “I understand how you feel, but some husbands are stricter than others, and—”
“Brent, please, I don’t need the lecture. Okay? What I want is someone to follow up with her and Arthur to make sure he’s not harming her, even if it’s unintentional.”
The only sound Jerry heard was Brent’s breathing. Finally, the other man said, “All right. I’ll suggest Kelli broach the subject with her. As Elly’s mentor, I think she’s the best choice, but Jerry, you and I need to sit down and discuss the appropriateness of your fixation with Mrs. Benson. I realize you view Eleanor Benson as a wounded animal and want to shelter her under your protective wing. However, Mrs. Benson is neither yours to protect, nor care for, and I suspect your feelings may be interfering with your objectivity.”
“Fine, I’ll set up an appointment to talk with you next week, but let me say this. When I asked Mrs. Benson how her wrists came to be so bruised and swollen, she said it was just a simple misunderstanding between her and Arthur. And Brent, putting my feelings aside, what happened to that woman was neither a misunderstanding, nor simple.” At that, Jerry hung up. A part of him longed to tell his mentor off, but his rational mind knew the older man was right. If Elly wouldn’t speak up for herself, and admit she and Benson had a problem, they could do nothing to help her. And, though his growing feelings for Mrs. Benson might be inappropriate, they weren’t interfering with his objectivity. They had practically eclipsed it.


To be entered in my drawing, leave a comment with your name and e-mail address and tell me what it was specifically Jerry observed about Elly Benson that had him suspecting her husband abused her.

#HornyHDay - 8/13/14 - Arrested by Love - Promise you'll stop #SpankingRomance #DD


Take one dominant police officer, add in a slightly spoiled socialite, toss together and savor the tangy result.

This material is Not Safe For Work. If you’re not over 18, please explore elsewhere.

Happy Horny Hump Day!  If you've visited before, you already know this is a regular Wednesday feature on A Writer's Naughty Thoughts. In this blog loop, we hope to provide you with tiny erotic tidbits of the most sexy and sensuous moments in our books. Just 3 sentences.  And boy is that hard to do, sometimes....

My post for this Wednesday is from my 3rd book, Arrested by Love. A spicy spanking romance published by Blushing Books.


In this scene, Kyle takes his recently engaged fiancee, Tiffany, on a secluded picnic where he plans to give the woman he adores everything she'd been attempting to seduce out of him for the past three years.  Her inexperience is a great turn on for him, but it also means he needs to take things far more slowly than his body desires.  But he wants her first time to be a pleasurable memory, not a painful one, so he does what he can to make sure she's fully aroused before he takes her. However, Tiffany is less than sure he'll fit inside her, and once she gets a glimpse of him unclothed she calls her safeword.  Realizing Tiffany is serious, Kyle takes a step back to talk things through with his girl.  When he assures her he'll stop, if she wanted him to, Tiffany asks if she can touch him--there.  It takes all of Kyle's will power to remain still under her tentative fondling. Tiffany is a little in awe as she tries to encircle him with her hand.


             "I can't do it.  My fingers aren't long enough," Tiffany admitted with a trace of disappointment.
            When he didn't answer, she slowly removed her hand, and Kyle held his breath as he waited for her decision.
            "Promise you'll stop if it hurts too much?"


An innocent in every sense of the word, Tiffany has wanted Kyle to make love to her for years.  In this case, however, size does matter and larger isn't necessarily better.

#SPeekSunday - 8/10/14 - Acting Lessons - Whatever it takes #KissMeKate #SpankingRomance


Peter loved Kate with all his being, but that didn't mean he'd tolerate an ultimatum from her.

For Sneak Peek Sunday we share six paragraphs from a published work or a WIP (work in progress).

My submission for this week is from my 5th book, and newest release, Acting Lessons.

 He was a strict and demanding college professor turned professional director who excelled at giving acting lessons.  She was his shy and uncertain former student who became a professional actress under his tutelage.  They fell in love, married, and won two Tony Awards before tragedy struck and a simple kiss ripped them apart.

After a six month separation, Peter Thorton decides to take matters into his own hands by making his famous wife, Kate, an offer she wouldn't refuse.  Plainly put, he wants her back and he intends to do whatever is necessary to achieve his goal, even if it means giving his stubborn, willful leading lady a daily reminder over his knee that she promised to obey him.


In this scene, which occurs early in the first chapter, Peter Thorton, seated comfortably in an agent's office, is attempting to convince his wife, Kate, to give their marriage a second chance by signing her to appear with him in a College Summer Stock production of "Kiss Me Kate."  Kate isn't sure she can trust Peter with her heart again, since she believes he's been unfaithful to her, but she's never stopped loving him.  And though Domestic Discipline originally played a part in their marriage, their last two years together had them living like polite strangers sharing the same house.  Peter realizes he made a mistake in letting Kate do as she pleased, so he's determined to rectify matters immediately, and informs his famous wife that if she keeps acting like a brat, he will turn her over his knee.  Since Kate doesn't believe him, she dares him to try it.  He doesn't hesitate, And before she gets another word out, Kate finds herself stomach down across her husband's knees.  Furious and humiliated by both her position and Peter's warning swat, she demands her agent call the police while Peter suggests the agent give them some time alone.  Furious, Kate makes the mistake of challenging her husband, and he lets her know right away what he will and will not tolerate.


            "Better.  Now, I told you to be silent, and I meant it.  All you have to do is lie still for a moment and listen while I tell you how things are going to change between us."
            "My arms hurt," she complained, furious she couldn't suppress the tears of frustration and defeat spilling from her eyes.
            "Then stop struggling," he scolded, his words emerging like a gentle caress as he released her wrists and lightly rubbed her arms to return the circulation.  "You only tense up when you fight me, and you won't win, you know?"
            Kate refused to concede, but she wasn't foolish enough to rise simply because he'd loosened his hold.  Though she did pull her hands forward once he'd finished his massage.
            "I asked you a question, so I expect an answer, Kate," he insisted, his voice firm with warning as he stroked her still-clothed backside.  In the past, he'd always delivered his punishments on the bare, but her agent's office didn't provide much privacy.  All the same, he'd warned her, which meant he would lower her pants in a nanosecond if he deemed it necessary.
            Despite his gentle stroking, she could tell by his tone of voice he wasn't going to let her up, yet.  So, she'd say whatever she must to get him to release her, then she'd have his ass thrown in jail for abusing her.


Kate pushed, so Peter pulled.  Now Kate's regretting having pushed so hard, but only because she got caught.

M/F, DD and a staged production of Kiss Me, Kate.

#SatSpanks - 8/9/14 - Mortal Illusions - Mortals exist to serve vampires #ParanormalRomance #Vampires


Show me an angry vampire, and I'll show you an unhappy mortal.

NOTE: 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 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 being revised.

When Claire Daniels discovers Germaine St. Justine is a vampire, she sets a plan in motion to convince him to cure her brother of AIDS.  Though an innocent in sexual relations, Claire is savvy enough to realize the best way to secure Germaine's support is to enter into an intimate relationship with him.  However, having a vampire take you to bed isn't quite the same as sleeping with the boy next door.  There are complications. And Germaine is dominant enough to add a few more Claire hadn't expected.



In this segment, Germaine and Claire are leaving the Manhattan restaurant, where he'd just proposed to her, after they are accosted by Claire's former boy friend, Harry.  Harry has made some alarming accusations against Germaine, and Claire is attempting to work truth from fiction through in her mind as she carefully questions her dominant vampire lover, and now she supposes fiance.


            Swallowing back her uneasiness, Claire linked her arm loosely through Germaine's and shook her head.  The night air was brisk, but not bitter, and she liked to walk.  But more than that, she needed reassurance that Harry was wrong, except she feared Germaine would not offer it willingly.
            Uncertain where to begin, she considered all she'd seen and heard that night and chose to start with the revelation that bothered her most.  “Who's Sybill?”
            Germaine slanted her a wary glance, but answered, “She is a mortal in service to Arthur.”
            “In service?” Claire repeated, more than a little alarmed by her lover's choice of words.
            “Theirs is more of a business arrangement, Claire.  Arthur secured Sybill's services about six months ago when he picked her up in a bar.”


Claire is discovering vampires live by different rules than those governing the mortal world, and she's afraid she's fallen in love with a man who will only break her heart.

#FriskyFriday - 8/8/14 - Arrested by Love - Kyle takes back what is his #SpankingRomance #DD


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

Another Friday, another excerpt to launch you into your weekend.  For this Frisky Friday I am sharing a bit from my 3rd book, Arrested by Love.  A handsome, but strict, police officer decides a spoiled socialite needs a special lesson in obeying the law.



Tiffany Morgan has been in love with Kyle Sinclair since she was ten years old, when he'd turned her over his knee for attempting to swim in a raging white water river. Though she'd been furious with him at the time, Tiffany never told her family what Kyle did. Instead, she began trailing after him like an annoying younger sister as she tried to gain his attention.

Now, eleven years later, Kyle, a patrol officer, is finding it much more difficult to maintain his distance from the irresistible and vivacious redhead who continues to invent ingenious ways to attract his interest. Though he dismissed her initial attraction to him as infatuation, as she grew-up, his own feelings of desire and protectiveness deepened. So, despite his constant struggle to resist the spirited little minx's lures, Kyle finally has to admit that he is losing the battle--badly.



The following section occurs about two-thirds through the book.  Kyle and Tiffany have been separated for several weeks.  She's refusing to see him after catching him in a lie, and her family has circled the wagons around her.  Recently, Kyle learned Tiffany isn't doing well, so decides to conduct a stake out near her home to see if he can catch a glimpse of her himself.  Patrick is Tiffany's father, Chrissy is her younger sister.


             Bleary eyed, Kyle was back at the binoculars at six on Monday.  He expected Patrick to be leaving for work about seven.  Patrick commuted into the city by train, which was a forty-five minute ride.  When eight o'clock rolled by and no one left the house, Kyle knew something had to be up.  Patrick could be on vacation, but Kyle doubted it.  He continued to watch and was surprised to see Chrissy walk out of the house carrying what looked like her mother's purse.  She was followed shortly by her mother and father who appeared to be holding up a skinny teenager.
            Shaking his head, Kyle increased the power on his binoculars and watched as the scrawny red head with dull green eyes suddenly turned toward the bushes then fell to her knees and vomited.  Holy shit!  That was Tiffany.  His Tiffany.  Throwing down the binoculars Kyle started his car and sped over to the house.   Had he been on duty, he would have given himself a ticket.
            Torn between stark fear, shock, and blazing anger, he was ripping out his key and leaping from the car before he'd even engaged the power break.  That was his girl who was sick, and he needed to be with her, at her side, helping her, feeding her.
            God, she had to have lost over thirty pounds, which would bring her to an anorexic weight of ninety.  He'd last seen her six weeks ago Friday.  How could she have changed so much in so little time?  Hadn't she eaten or slept at all during the six weeks?  Charging toward her like a mad lion out to protect his mate, Kyle wasn't going to take no for an answer.  And Lord help her father if he even attempted to try and stop him.
            Patrick and her mother were helping Tiffany back to her feet, when Kyle stepped in.  Tiffany could barely even walk, she was so weak.
            "Don't worry, Pumpkin, I've got you," Patrick Morgan murmured.
            "Patrick," Kyle said firmly.  "I'll take her now."


Tiffany is furious with Kyle, but at the moment she is so ill, even glaring at him takes more energy than she has, but Kyle is not about to be deterred.
