Horny Hump Day - Apr. 18 - Mortal Illusions


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

Welcome to Horny Hump Day, a regular Wednesday feature! In this blog loop, we hope to provide you with tiny little tidbits of the most sexy and sensuous moments in our books. Just 3 sentences. The books might be already published, works-in-progress, or even classic literature we think you’ll like.


This post for HHD 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 under production.




In this segment, Claire Daniels has just witnessed a threatened whipping of a female in Germaine St. Justine's group, followed by a duel between Germaine and a member of his council over the right to punish her.  Though Germaine won, Claire is far from reassured. When he insists on walking her back from his private club to her apartment in New York City, she begins demanding answers from him in a way that is drawing attention, as well as Germaine's displeasure.  Claire, who no longer cares if they draw a crowd of spectators, asks about another woman Germaine's council saw fit to punish. “So, what did you do, whip her with that feather duster you keep around for recalcitrant women?”

* * * * * 

                “Lower your voice,” he warned quietly.  When she merely glared at him, he admitted, “The council did sentence Sybill to ten lashes of the feather whip, but I neither judged her nor carried out the sentence.”
                Although Claire lowered her voice, she did not attempt to disguise her revulsion. 
* * * * *
As you may be able to tell, Claire views whipping as barbaric, and would go down fighting if Germaine ever attempted to publicly humiliate her in that fashion.


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

  5. A feather whip sounds very interesting. She's probably heading for a fall with that attitude.
