SatSpanks - 3/22/14 - Mortal Illusions - Taken in by an act #SatSpanks #Vampires #ParanormalRomance


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 when Phillipa admits that she suspected Germaine had caught on to her and Phillip's plan.  Confused, Claire asks what she meant, but Phillipa hesitates before inquiring if Germaine initiated Claire this past weekend.  Despite her anger with the man, Claire isn't ready to discuss her intimate details with a woman she just met, so she declines to discuss it.


            Phillipa's brows rose with sudden understanding. “I see. If that's the case, then I think I'd better keep my mouth shut until Germaine has a chance to talk with you.”
            Giving the other woman a wry smile, Claire said, “I'm not sure either of us will live that long. Please, don't stop on my account. Believe me, there's nothing you can say that will make matters worse, and you could improve them.”
            Though Phillipa still looked uncertain, she nodded. “As I said, with Germaine growling and tossing out insults like he was itching for a fight, Phillip and I thought we'd offer to scratch by staging a little show. Only it seems Germaine saw through our playacting and called our bluff.”
            Claire couldn't believe her ears. “You're saying that was all a show? Phillip's accusation--your plea--Germaine's call to the council? Even the vote to have you whipped?

Claire is discovering these vampires live by different rules than those governing the mortal world, and she's afraid she's fallen in love with a man who will only break her heart.
