#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.
            "Oh."
            "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.

#MFRWHooks - 8/26/15 - Acting Lessons - Making love has consequences #KissMeKate #DD


Splendorous things can happen when the mind and body are in tune.

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

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 5th novel, 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 in chapter six, Peter Thorton has just finished giving his wife, Kate, a relatively mild spanking for defying his instructions, and is preparing to make love to her for the first time in over two years.  Peter adores Kate, but he's not above teasing her a little before giving her what she wants and needs as he gently nibbles her into a writhing mass of desire.  However, given her injured knee, he also wants to ensure nothing they do aggravates her torn meniscus, so he gently restrains her when she tries to counter-thrust against his pleasuring. Since they haven't been together for nearly six months, Peter enters Kate slowly to give her body time to adjust.  However, passion soon claims them and when Peter climaxes, Kate realizes they didn't use protection.


             He leaned forward and kissed her.  "That, my adorable, sexy wife, was totally worth the wait."
            "Peter?"
            "Yes, my darling?"
            "You didn't wear a condom, did you?"
            "No.  Are you going to tell me you aren't on the pill?"
            Eyes wide, she gave a slow nod.
            He leaned over her.  "So, you never took a lover during the six months we were separated?"
            She shook her head, even more slowly this time.
            He grinned at her like the Cheshire cat, then leaned forward and kissed her again before he whispered, "I haven't been with anyone, either."
            "You haven't?" she asked, not bothering to hide her surprise.


Peter is finally where he belongs, and now that he's there, he has no wish to leave. He loves Kate, and wants them to be together again, in all ways. 
M/F, DD and a staged production of Kiss Me, Kate.

Guest Post - 8/25/15 - "The Amber Voyeur" by Ravyn Rayne #GemApocalypse #Dystopian

The talented Ravyn Rayne is visiting us again, this time to discuss the latest in her Gem Apocalypse series "The Amber Voyeur"



Excerpt:

The hum of the engine died, and Aria heard the scream of unfamiliar words in a language she didn't recognize. Shots were fired in every direction forcing her to duck, throwing herself onto the floor of the ship.
James lay right beside her, covering Aria with his body, shielding her from danger. She didn't have the courage to ask what happened.
The warmth and security Aria felt from James vanished. A man covered in tattoos, his arms a canvas of ink, grabbed James by the arm and dragged him across the room. The second man accompanying him lifted Aria from the floor and escorted her up the stairwell. James walked just a few feet in front. The man dropped his hold on her as the passageway narrowed. A gun pressed into her back, a constant reminder of danger. Aria couldn't fight without risking her life. She hoped these men would steal what goods they came for and then leave.
Forced outside, the lifeboats were just a few feet away.
The sun began to set, and the sky twinkled like a sapphire without a cloud in the heavens.
Even at dusk, beads of sweat trickled against Aria's forehead. Her black shirt stuck to her back, the cargo pants she wore were too hot for this climate. She didn't dare ask where they were; she didn't believe anyone would answer.
They were forced against the wall. Would the lifeboats even float anymore? The old luxury cruise liner's paint faded from years of sun exposure. What would it have been like fifty years ago, before the devastation and destruction that their parents created, taking a luxury cruise? She would never know. The Gem Apocalypse had resulted in a war with only survivors, no heroes.
"Move!" the man behind Aria said. His gun dug further into her back, and she pushed forward on James's heels. "Down!"
They got down onto the ground with the other crew and passengers. Six men towered over them with guns. Aria was unfamiliar with the weapons, as they were larger than the ones the guards carried at the palace.
"We'll be okay," James said as he sat beside Aria, reaching for her hand.

Aria wanted to ask him how he could know that without a doubt. Hope shrank like a beacon of light fading in the distance. These men were thieves. She could smell the treachery and greed from where she sat. How did they end up here?



Blurb:

No longer safe in Brayleigh, Aria and James travel by ship to find refuge and discover what’s left of the world.
Dangerous seas and pirates lurking are only the start of their troubles. Forced off the boat with nothing but the clothes on their back, the crew and passengers make it to a nearby island, only to be abducted by the Knight Tribe, a clan of romantic warriors with a voyeuristic culture and a taste for nightly entertainment.
Get swept away in this dystopian erotic adventure, brimming with romance, spankings, and betrayal.

#6BestHop - 8/23/15 - A Simple Misunderstanding - Jerry apologizes for swatting Elly #CorbinsBend #Spanking



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

Welcome to Sunday's Six of the Best Blog Hop, 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.  So, she heads over to the dog park with her toy poodle, Muffin, in the hope he'll meet her there.  He does.  Excited, she tells him she had three women visit her that morning.  Wanting to hear more, Jerry starts asking questions and when he discovers Elly risked getting in trouble with her husband if he discovered she'd come to the dog park without his permission first, Jerry gives her a swat for putting herself at risk, then immediately apologized.


Stunned by his anger and concern, unshed tears burned Elly’s eyes. Seconds later, he drew her into his arms for a crushing hug. “God, Elly. I’m so sorry. Please don’t cry, sweetie. I’m not angry, just worried for you.”
Confused, Elly clung to him. Arthur had never apologized or comforted her after a punishment, and Jerry had hardly touched her, yet she wanted him to hold her and whisper endearments even if she didn’t deserve them. She wanted him to kiss her and knew that was very, very wrong.
He drew back and wiped the tears from her cheeks with his thumbs. “I didn’t hurt you, did I? Unless Benson whipped you raw last night, you shouldn’t have felt that swat through the padded coat you’re wearing. Even if you did, I doubt I hit you hard enough to make you cry. So, is something else upsetting you?”
She shook her head and extracted a wadded piece of tissue from her pocket to wipe her nose. “No. I’m fine. I should go.” Cupping her hands over her mouth, she called, “Muffin.”
“Yes, you should, but not like this. Not when you’re upset. Stay and talk to me for a moment, at least until I’m sure you’re okay.”
Elly closed her eyes against the conflicting feelings roiling inside her, but didn't resist when he pulled her close again.

 

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. However, the notion that she's actually courting trouble doesn't sit well with him at all.



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.

#SatSpanks - 8/22/15 - Past Interference - Refusing to obey - #CorbinsBend #Spanking


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. Past Interference is part of the Corbin's Bend Valentine's Day collection "Love in the Rockies," and is not being sold separately.


In this scene, which occurs in Chapter Five, 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.  Not permitted to talk until the doctor gives her permission, Elly is reduced to communicating with a white board.  With her wedding to Jerry scheduled to take place in three days, Elly refuses to spend one more night in the guest bedroom.  Knowing Jerry will do nothing to address their issues until after she's been cleared by their physician, Elly decides to confront the matter the only way she knows how.  Head on. Jerry gives Elly a chance to avoid the inevitable by ordering her to pick up her board one last time, but she stubbornly refuses to comply.


Elly harbored no misconceptions over what continued disobedience would earn her this time, but she stubbornly refused to take the out Jerry offered her. “No.”
His hand descended hard enough to push the air out of her lungs. She’d forgotten how painful his barehanded spankings could be.
“Ow!”
“Board,” he repeated.
“No.”
Swat. Swat. Her backside was starting to sting from the assault, but she knew he’d barely begun, and as angry as he was, he might not even stop once she obeyed by picking up the board. She tried thrashing her legs in protest, but that show of resistance only earned her three more swats before he repeated the word, “Board.”

 

Though Elly knows her disobedience will push Jerry into taking action, she hopes the spanking she's about to receive will help clear some of the very uncomfortable tension developing between them and allow them to begin repairing their broken relationship.



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.
