Six Sentence Sunday - Apr. 22 - Mortal Illusions

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

Welcome to my 6SS where I hope to provide you with tiny little tidbits of the most sexy and sensuous moments in my books. Just 6 sentences, that I intend to build from my Horny Hump Day 3 sentence feature. The books might be already published, works-in-progress, or even sentences from other sexy books I think you’ll like.  Of course, I will properly attribute all works, even mine.

My current post for 6SS, is from my 1st book, Mortal Illusions. A vampire romance published by New Concepts Publishing, Mortal Illusions is currently the first in a projected 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.
* * * * * 
                “Is that feather duster you keep around for recalcitrant women so painful she would consider it torture?”
                “No...the whip smarts, but it leaves no welts, nor does it break the skin.  It is meant to humiliate more than hurt.  The punishment was supposed to be public, but even that was waived when Sybil pleaded for a closed session.  I am confident she was given every consideration due her.”
                “How kind of you.  What did you do, offer her a blindfold, a pillow and a Kleenex?”          
* * * * *
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.

  1. I'm sorry I didn't see this on Sunday -- just got the notice today (Monday). I hate being late, especially when the party favors are so good. This is another great snippet of Mortal Illusions, Kathryn. Claire really has a sharp tongue on her and your dialog is equally pointed.


I love hearing from readers, so thank you for making my day! Writers with any thoughts at all (Naughty or otherwise) love comments, and I'm no exception.
