Sneak Peek Sunday - June 30 - Deadly Enchantment #SPeekSunday #Shifters #MFRWAuthor



An unhappy shape shifter can be a dangerous companion....

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


My submission 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 excerpt, which occurs near the end of the first 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.  Except, Dominic has no intention of ever marrying again.  His fury with his sister's interference manifests into a green trail of hot smoke that he directs away from his sister.  Seemingly sentient, the tendril snakes through the ceiling and the floorboards of an upper room where the women are waiting.  When Serena intercepts the smoky trail, she and Dominic are briefly connected on a psychic level.


            Feeling as if he’d been punched in his solar plexus, Dominic dragged in a lungful of air and regarded his half-sister with a look of suspicion.  “Who did you say you invited here?”
            Her expression immediately turned to one of concern.  “I told you, I invited ten women all from good, but impoverished families.”
            “Really,” he replied, then sucked in another deep breath through his teeth as he fought to regain control over his tumultuous mix of emotions.  “Well, you may need to rethink the ‘goodness’ of the families you selected, sister dear, since one of your fine, upstanding ladies is not at all what she claims to be,” he admitted coolly despite the fact that his heart still pounded in his chest.
            He had often released his anger in this manner, but he had never before encountered any thing or person who could match and counter it so effectively.  The presence, though powerful, was untrained, definitely female and overflowing with distrust.  Even so, she had managed to diffuse his rage with a single touch.
            “What do you mean she’s not what she claims to be?” Regina asked, her uncertainty reflected in her face and posture.
            His equilibrium restored, Dominic regarded Regina with a practiced look of detachment.  “I mean that one of your guests possesses powers that she is taking great pains to hide from you and the others.  In short we have a visitor under our roof who is here for reasons she purposely does not want us to know.”


The brief connection nearly robbed Dominic of breath, but it was enough for Serena to determine she'd been briefly touched by an angry, masculine presence, which she recognized and recoiled from at the same time

Saturday Spankings - June 29 - Mortal Illusions #SatSpanks #Vampires #MFRWAuthor


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 gain Germaine's support is to have 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 expected, however, was for Germaine not only to agree, but call for a supporting vote from his council.  Unfortunately, the vampire who requested the punishment, expected Germaine to protest, not agree....


                       “But . . . But, I don't understand,” Phillip stammered, his widely horrified eyes shifting from Germaine to the short handled whip Marcus pressed into his hand. It looked like a mutated feather duster with its long leather thongs embedded with hundreds of soft curling ostrich plumes.
            Claire didn't think the instrument would really hurt, but from the woman's uneasy expression, she wasn't certain. Her uncertainty didn't lessen any when Hugo and a muscle-bound gentleman, who Claire didn't recognize, escorted the woman over to a large platform lowered from the ceiling. Nor did it diminish when the two men positioned their prisoner stomach down on the soft black velvet. But by that point, all Claire knew was that she couldn't let this travesty continue.
            She marched over to Germaine. “You can't be serious about this,” she protested, grabbing his arm. “This is barbaric.”
            “Perhaps,” he concurred absently, “but it's been a long time coming.”


Certain dynamics are at play here that aren't readily apparent, but Claire is beginning to get very worried her new lover may not be the man she originally took him to be.

Horny Hump Day - June 26 - Arrested by Love #HornyHDay #Spanking #MFRWAuthor


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 first Horny Hump Day of Summer!  Wow, time flies and all that.  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.



            Careful to take his time to bring her the most pleasure, Kyle began by kissing the most sensitive spots on Tiffany's body as he undressed her.  Her soft murmurs of contentment as she worked to free the buttons on his shirt, pleased him greatly.  He wanted her to enjoy touching and looking at him, so he encouraged her to do both as much as she wanted.


An innocent in every sense of the word, Tiffany has wanted Kyle to make love to her for years.  She's dreamed of this moment, but now that her dreams are about to come true, she's more than a little uncertain about the physicality of the act.

Sneak Peek Sunday - June 23 - Acting Lessons #SPeekSunday #Spanking #MFRWAuthor

For Spankee Doodle Dandy, please click HERE!


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 her 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.  However, Kate has a few stipulations of her own....


             "Kate wondered if you'd be willing to have someone, other than yourself, perform the male lead."
            Peter regarded her in surprise.  "Really?" he asked, recalling how she'd once declined to take part in a class because he'd refused to play opposite her during a memory exercise.
            When she met his gaze with one raised eyebrow, he shook his head.  Not a chance, darling.  This is a package deal.  Then he recalled hearing Kate had started dating again.  Rumors were this gent harked from the halls of justice rather than the boards of Broadway, which made Peter wonder if that emerald-cut monstrosity she sported might be a token of the fellow's admiration, or something more.  Like an engagement ring.
            "No," he answered finally, refusing to explain further.
            Kate regarded him with an even stare.  "Don't you think you're being a bit inflexible?"
            "If you think my behavior is inflexible," he murmured, leaning in closer to her.  "Then you, my darling, are playing the brat."


Hmm.  Kate's developed a bit of a temper during their separation, but Peter is fully prepared to handle anything she throws his way, including herself.

Saturday Spankings - June 22 - A Dom's Dilemma #SatSpanks #BDSM #MFRWAuthor

For Spankee Doodle Dandy, please 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 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 BDSM novel, A Dom's Dilemma, published by Blushing Books.


In this scene, Jim, a former Texan who by day works as a police detective and by night lives and plays as a Dom, is in the Velvet Chains BDSM medical station attempting to give his new submissive, Kelly Franklin, an anal exam. When Kelly goes ballistic, Jim suspects fear, rather than brattiness, is responsible for her reaction.  After giving her repeated opportunities to use her safeword, Jim is left with little choice.  She is being disrespectful, defiant and acting like a brat, all of which screams punishment to a Dom.


             "Well, you ready to apologize, yet, or do I keep goin'?" he demanded, lightly rubbing her rosy, pink bottom.  He'd been firm with her, but considering what she'd given him, he'd let her off lightly, so far.  Other Doms would have had her restrained on the cross, or the bench, and teaching her a much harder lesson than he just did.  "Answer me, sub!" he commanded, waiting.  But when the only sounds emerging remained tear-filled gasps, he brought his hand down again.
            This time she arched her back and cried out, "I'm sorry!"
            He shook his head.  "Not nearly convincin' enough.  I wanna hear a proper apology from you now, or I'm gonna keep at it until I do."  She lay limp across his knees and continued to wail.  He knew her fear wasn't natural, and a part of him wanted to hold and comfort her, but she needed a firm Dom right now, so that's what she got.


Though Jim can be strict, he likes a bit of spunk in a sub.  However, Kelly has crossed a line even he can't permit.

(Available now at Blushing Books)


This Acting Lessons excerpt: (only available here for Spankee Doodle) begins near the end of Chapter Five.  Following a six month separation, Kate has spent her first night with Peter after she hurt her knee during a ballet exercise the previous day.  She's been to the emergency room, at Peter's insistence, and is scheduled to see her orthopedist that afternoon, also at Peter's insistence.  They are having breakfast together at a small table in what was once their bedroom when Peter brings up her obvious show of jealousy  toward another woman.  Kate starts to grow uneasy with the direction of their conversation, and when Peter shiftts his chair out into the center of the room in a very familiar move to Kate, her uneasiness takes a drastic turn for the worse.

KATHRYN R. BLAKE'S SPANKEE DOODLE DANDY STORY:  Kate learns disobedience has consequences.

            "Maybe we should wait until after I've seen the doctor for my knee?"
            Peter lowered his hand.  "If you insist, we'll wait.  However, I would prefer we get your punishment out of the way now.  I can think of many far more pleasurable things I would like to do with you, but until this issue is resolved, I refuse to go down that path."
            Despite her uneasiness, his words infused Kate with warmth, which had nothing to do with embarrassment, and she took another step closer.  "Do you have a number in mind?"
            "No, but because of your knee this punishment won't be as long or painful as it should be."  He extended his hand to her again.  "However, if you delay much longer, I may need to remind you your obedience to me isn't conditional."
            She shook her head.  "We're legally separated, so I no longer have to obey you."
            Straightening his shoulders, Peter frowned up at her. "I believe, my love, you just lied, so I will require another confession from you."
            Had she lied?  Did she still owe him her obedience?  He asked, no demanded, she submit to him.  With their divorce final in a few days, did he have the right to insist?  Did her promise to obey oblige her to bend to his wishes even now?
            Peter had dominated her from the first day they met.  He didn't physically punish her until he no longer taught at the school she attended, but he'd always commanded her respect and obedience.  Had their dynamics changed simply because they lived apart now?
            "I didn't lie," she insisted. "However, my wedding vows weren't what compelled me to obey you, which means my statement was incorrect."
            "Thank you for admitting the truth.  So, the choice, my love, is simple.  Do you wish to re-establish our relationship, or are these delaying tactics meant to convey an aversion to having me in your life again?"
            She scowled at him.  "That's not fair.  I just don't think we need to do--" She waved her hand indicating him and the chair.  "--this anymore. We've moved on."
            "What about yesterday, when I took you over my knee?  Were those tears you spilled merely an act?  Were you only pretending to submit to me?"
            Lowering her eyes, Kate shook her head.  "No, I…."
            "Tell me, Kate.  How did you feel bent over my lap knowing I could and would punish you for your shrewish attitude?"
            "Angry, uncertain."
            "Is that all?"
            She shook her head again.  "I felt as though you truly cared what I did, and my actions mattered to you."
            "They do.  Very much so.  They always have, I just bottled my disappointment inside, which was a mistake.  However, I learn from my errors, as I intend to prove right now.  Even so, the choice is still yours, Katie.  It always has been."
            She stood so close, her knee brushed up against his leg.  "I know."
            "Do you want to walk away, or prove to me you are willing to give our relationship another try, safe in the knowledge I will always take care of you?"
            She winced.  "I still don't want to do this," she admitted, clasping the hand he offered and letting him draw her over his knees and position her the way he wanted.
            "Perhaps not consciously," he said raising her nightgown and lowering her panties, which made her groan.  "But that doesn't change the fact you're not afraid of what I'm about to do, since any discomfort you experience will be more of the mind than the body.  However, afterward, I'll make certain you understand it is love, not anger or disapproval that prompts my actions."  He lightly ran his hand from the small of her back, over her buttocks to the tops of her thighs.  "Now, before we begin, I want you to repeat aloud to me what you did to earn this punishment."
            She slumped in her position.  She'd always hated this part.  The confession.  "Do I hav--"
            "Yes, you do.  This is a cleansing process.  So, to gain the most benefit, you need to state your errors, as well as the reason for the punishment."
            Kate found herself on familiar ground here.  Despite the humiliation of having her bottom bared and spanked, Peter's continued stroking centered and relaxed her.  She took in a deep breath and said, "I was jealous of the way Christine threw herself at you, and wanted to prove I was better than her."
            "Admitting to jealousy is a start, even though there has never been any question as to your capability or desirability.  Go on."
            "I chose to prove myself by dancing in a way that would make you notice me."
            "All right.  Perhaps that was the reason you stretched the way you did, but the workout alone wasn't what got you in trouble, was it?"
            "No," she answered, guilt bringing tears to her eyes.  "What I neglected to do was pay heed to my body's signals.  I should have pulled back rather than continue to push myself."
            "An excellent lesson, but you failed to do something else I requested, too.  Something that might have lessened if not prevented your injury.  Can you recall what it was?"
            "I didn't wrap my knee."
            "No, you didn't.  Tell me why."
            "Because I was angry."  Kate bit her lip.  Confessions were hard.  "I wanted to prove I could do things the way I wanted, rather than the way I should."
            "Excellent.  So the reason I am punishing you is…?"
            "Is because--" Kate let out a small sob.
            "Shh.  Katie.  You're safe here.  Now take a deep breath and relax.  I realize it's a difficult concept to accept, but I am not holding you over my lap to hurt you.  I'm doing this to show you my support and concern in a way that will put all your doubts to rest, calm your spirit and relieve your lingering guilt once it's over."
            "I know, and you're right," she said on another sob.  "I'm sorry."
            "Easy, sweetheart."  His stroking grew a little firmer as he worked some of the tension out of her back.  He wanted her to know he was using this method to reinforce his point and work through her issues, not cause her pain and injury.  Intellectually, she knew this spanking would help her, it was accepting the punishment on an emotional level that gave her difficulty.
            "Now tell me why I'm punishing you."
            She closed her eyes, took three deep breaths, and forced herself to relax.  "Because in order to prove I was worthy of your attention, I deliberately defied your instructions, and ended up hurting myself."
            "Good girl.  That was perfect.  Now, clutch the bottom rung of the chair so you don't fling your hands back where they don't belong.  You may wail and cry as loud as you want.  No one will mind."
            Realizing what his words meant, Kate groaned again as she wrapped her fingers around the smooth, wooden rung.  "Are William and Consuelo aware you're planning to do this?"
            "Yes.  They know.  I will count.  Your job is to accept, submit, and learn.  All right?"
            "Yes, sir," she answered with a sniff.
            "I do love hearing you call me, sir, even though you only resort to such deference when you're in trouble."
            Too true.  She may hate his spankings, but she adored the man who gave them to her.  Accepting her fate, she lowered her head and did her best to submit.  "Yes, sir."
            "I'm proud of you, Katie.  Now try not to tense, and we'll begin."
            Although Kate did her best to stay relaxed, Peter's first smack had her gasping from the pain and her body tightening against the assault.
            "Relax, Kate," he reminded before calling, "One."
            Though she willed herself to obey, her fingers tightened on the chair rung as she waited for the next strike.
            "You're not listening to me, Katie," he warned.  "That's going to make this punishment more painful than it needs to be.  Two."
            "I'm trying!" Kate protested through her tears.
            "Not hard enough," he countered, calling, "Three."
            Kate had been softly crying before they'd started, so by the time Peter reached five she was close to sobbing, even though the spanking wasn't what caused her unhappiness.  Oh, Peter's swats hurt, but only enough for her to recognize he punished her for being rash and foolish.  No, her doubts and inadequacies were what ripped her apart inside.  And, inadequacy was something Peter refused to let Kate feel.
            He remained so adamant Kate recognize her own worth, she'd received more swats for believing she was incompetent than for deliberately provoking him.  Even now, he wanted her to know and understand she was in no way inferior to Christine, so her actions to prove her competence were as unwarranted as they were punishable.
            As tears continued to stream from her eyes, she repeated her apology for not listening to him.
            When Peter called ten the pain started her kicking in protest, though she did not attempt to rise off his lap.  However, kicking wasn't allowed, so eleven was firmer yet as Peter clamped his arm on her thighs, and gave a sharp reprimand.  "No!  Legs still."
            "I can't," Kate wailed, confident her bottom glowed a bright pink, though it burned as if it blazed red.  "Please, no more.  I realize I was wrong not to obey you, and I regret acting out like a child.  I'm sorry."
            "Yes, Katykins, I know you are, but I want you to accept how serious I am about this."
            "I believe you."
            "Do you?" he murmured as she continued to weep.
            The swats hurt, as he'd intended, however, Kate's tears were an emotional release.  And as much as she hated Peter's punishments, a part of her had perversely missed them.  Battling feelings of resentment and neglect, she'd turned into a demanding harpy she didn't like and couldn't stand.  Kate had struggled so hard to appear strong and independent; she'd neglected her health and altered her personality, alienating her family and most of her friends.  Peter's insistence she stop her destructive behavior by backing up his words with physical action served to shatter the persona she'd created.  The process was painful, and yet she found comfort and reassurance in the cleansing ritual.
            Normally, he continued spanking even after she'd begged him to stop.  He maintained he needed to be the one to decide the length and severity of her punishment, not she.  This time, however, Peter returned to light stroking as she sobbed out her apologies.  When Kate calmed enough to cease her incoherent babbling, he lifted her up, and held her close.  His gentleness brought on another spate of tears as she clung to his shoulders while he whispered gentle reassurances in her ear, reminding her how much he loved and cherished her.
            When Kate's crying lessened to shuddering sighs, Peter handed her a tissue and asked, "Are you ready to admit you're not inferior to anyone else, and you don't need to act out to gain my attention?"
            "Yes, sir," she replied, turning her face away as she blew her nose.  She undoubtedly looked a sight with her swollen red eyes, runny nose and tear-stained cheeks.
            He crooked a finger under her chin.  "Look at me, Kate."  She obeyed with a catch in her breath.  "I've let you off lightly this time.  Perhaps too lightly.  Have I convinced you to start paying closer heed to my warnings, and obey me?"
            Lowering her hands to her lap, she gazed into his dark brown eyes.  "Yes, sir."
            "Good.  I am satisfied you have learned your lesson."  At her obvious sigh of relief, he added, "Now, will you let me make love to you?"

Horny Hump Day - June 19 - Deadly Enchantment #HornyHDay #Shifters #MFRWAuthor



Love comes in many shapes and sizes, but a leopard?

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 2nd book, Deadly Enchantment, a shape-shifting wizard romance published by New Concepts Publishing.  The story revolves around a young psychic woman facing off with the dark wizard of Ravenscroft, who she is convinced has brutally slaughtered her sister in a fit of jealous rage on their wedding night.




In this segment, which is a direct continuation from my previous Hump Day Post for Deadly Enchantment, Serena Cunningham and Dominic Westcroft have taken shelter in a vacant cottage from a magical and malevolent storm cast by Dominic's brother, Terrence.  When they are able to deflect the charged lightning with a kiss, they realize their magic combined is far stronger and more resilient than Terrence's expanding web of evil.  Realizing their best chance of vanquishing Terrence requires them to join their powers, Dominic makes love to Serena, fully understanding his claiming her virginity will result in consequences that will change both their lives forever. What neither of them expects, however, is for Dominic to shift during the act.  Serena isn't sure how much of Dominic's personality remains in the mind of his beast, but, like the man, the beast demands her openly given trust in return.  However, when the leopard insistently presses its nose between her legs, Serena doubts her ability to give the animal what it seeks until she accepts neither she nor the man she loves will gain their heart's desire unless the ceremony is completed.  Dominic has now shifted back into his mortal form, but neither have them has completely recovered from the transition.


             Smiling at Damian uncertainly, Serena murmured, “I believe you may have understated what was going to transpire here, sir.”
            “Trust me, sweet Serena, what transpired here was as much a surprise to me as it was to you.  Had I known, I doubt I would have had the words to explain it anyway.”

Sneak Peek Sunday - June 16 - Mortal Illusions #SPeekSunday #Vampires #MFRWAuthor



For a vampire, love means watching someone you care about die.

Happy Father's Day to all.  Sneak Peek Sunday is a weekly excerpt hop where each author shares six paragraphs from a published work or a WIP (work in progress).

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.



In this excerpt, which is the beginning of the first chapter, Germaine St. Justine has sensed his former lover's pain and visits her in the hospital in an effort to ease her suffering.  Aware she wasn't asleep, though her body was turned away from him, he bent over to press a kiss against her temple.
.

             Although her eyes remained shut, her smile widened and he knew she was awake.
            “It can't be time to take my temperature again, John,” she murmured in a voice so husky it made him wonder if she enjoyed John's nightly visitations.
            Pressing his lips to her ear, Germaine whispered, “I fear you are to be sorely disappointed, madam, for I am not--John.”
            “Oh.”  She exhaled slowly, and Germaine could feel the effort it took for her to talk.  “Then it must be Michael, here for my nightly back rub.”
            “You mistake me, still,” he replied, smiling inwardly at her teasing even as he longed to bring her ease.  “I should be honored, however, to perform such a gallant service in that tardy gentleman's stead.”  His fingers sought the area between her shoulders and gently kneaded the muscles inclined to stiffen and cramp due to their enforced idleness.
            Her moan of pleasure was so sweet that Germaine felt his body respond with a piercing need.  It had been a long time since he'd been with a woman.  Nearly a quarter century, but he wasn't there to romance her.  Placing a firm restraint upon himself, he asked almost casually, “Tell me, who comes nightly to take a sample of your blood?”


A vampire's blood has many healing properties, and though Germaine can't cure Marguerite, he is able to smooth the pathway she must take for her final journey.

Saturday Spankings - June 15 - Arrested by Love #SatSpanks #Spanking #MFRWAuthor



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.  It doesn't help matters any when Tiffany compounds her infraction by swearing at him, but he remains resolute to the point he adds swats for her bad language.  However, when Tiffany's bravado crumbles, Kyle doesn't hesitate to offer comfort.  He may strict and unbending in some things, but when it comes to her comfort and well-being, Tiffany will always come first.


             "You're insane!" she spat back at him.
            He tapped his watch. "Thirty seconds, sweetheart, and we're up to sixty-seven now. Tick tock."
            Tears welled in Tiffany's eyes as she glared at him, but Kyle shook his head.  "Though I find your tears distressing, they are not going to sway me this time.  You are going to be seriously punished today, one way or the other."
            "It's cold," she complained softly.
            "Move over," he ordered, sliding in beside her and bringing the door to a near close.  The back-doors on his cruiser did not have any handles, so he couldn't shut the door all the way, however, he could help make her more comfortable.  Reaching down, he retrieved the blanket he kept in the car for victims and witnesses who would occasionally go into shock, and wrapped it around her shoulders.  "Better?" he asked, using his thumb to wipe away a couple of new tears.


Hmm.  Kyle loves Tiffany, but he takes her safety and obedience seriously, and intends to impress upon her the need for her to do the same--or else.
