Saturday Spankings - November 9 - Mortal Illusions #SatSpanks #Spanking #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 under production.

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, Claire has sought Germaine out at his private night club for the first time, only to discover his club offers much more than drinks for those with and without fangs.  The day room at Illusions is equipped to administer punishments as well.  While Claire is trying to reconcile with Germaine, one of his vampires enters the club with his mate in tow and demands permission to publicly chastise her.  What no one expects, however, is for Germaine not only to agree, but call for a supporting vote from his council. When the group unanimously agrees to the punishment, Claire doesn't think, she reacts by picking up a stool and striking the punishing vampire.  Phillip, who is unfazed by Claire's attack, demands she be punished for interfering with his council-sanctioned punishment.

When Germaine agrees Phillip's grievance is valid, he informs the room that he will carry out Claire's punishment himself.  Amazingly, the council protests, forcing Germaine into an open challenge with Phillip.  A sword duel to first blood.  Phillipa and Claire are seated on the sidelines to watch.

            “I probably shouldn't admit this,” Phillipa muttered beneath her breath, “But I really hope Germaine loses this one. He deserves to be taken down a peg or two after what he just did. For a vampire, he can be a real pain in the butt sometimes.”
            Claire felt a sudden sinking feeling in her stomach. “This has happened before?”
            Phillipa shrugged offhandedly. “More times than I'd care to remember.” She counted on her fingers, then grimaced. “Shit, the number's probably in the forties by now. I'm surprised no one's suggested they rename that mangy whip after me.” She took another sip of her drink.

            Horrified, Claire didn't know what to think. “Your husband has ordered you whipped more than forty times, and Germaine permitted it?”

Claire is discovering these vampires live by different rules than those governing the mortal world, and she's growing concerned that she may have made a terrible mistake.

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

  2. I loved the off hand way she counted on her fingers like it was nothing. Mangy whip lol LOVED it :)

  3. I love Phillipa counting and Claire's disbelief

  4. Forty whippings would be hard for Claire to imaging. Great snippet.

  5. 40 is a very large number, too large for me to even contemplate. yikes.

  6. There is all kinds of yumminess going on in this snippet. Two vampires dueling, two girls talking about them behind their backs. Phillipa's casual explanation and Claire's shock.
    What I'm still trying to figure out though, is why she hit him with the chair in the first place?
    I'll have to read this one and find out.

  7. For Phillipa, after 40 times, its routine, even mundane. But to Clair quite a shock... poor girl. I like it. Nice snip

  8. Lol, I can picture her stunned expression, and yet Phillipa is so matter of fact. Claire is just beginning to see what she's dealing with here!

  9. I love her nonchalance of the whole matter. Nice snippet!

  10. Whoa. 40 public whippings! I guess it would get to be old hat!
