#SatSpanks - 8/9/14 - Mortal Illusions - Mortals exist to serve vampires #ParanormalRomance #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 being revised.

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, Germaine and Claire are leaving the Manhattan restaurant, where he'd just proposed to her, after they are accosted by Claire's former boy friend, Harry.  Harry has made some alarming accusations against Germaine, and Claire is attempting to work truth from fiction through in her mind as she carefully questions her dominant vampire lover, and now she supposes fiance.

            Swallowing back her uneasiness, Claire linked her arm loosely through Germaine's and shook her head.  The night air was brisk, but not bitter, and she liked to walk.  But more than that, she needed reassurance that Harry was wrong, except she feared Germaine would not offer it willingly.
            Uncertain where to begin, she considered all she'd seen and heard that night and chose to start with the revelation that bothered her most.  “Who's Sybill?”
            Germaine slanted her a wary glance, but answered, “She is a mortal in service to Arthur.”
            “In service?” Claire repeated, more than a little alarmed by her lover's choice of words.
            “Theirs is more of a business arrangement, Claire.  Arthur secured Sybill's services about six months ago when he picked her up in a bar.”

Claire is discovering 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.

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

  1. Hiring a vampire to treat aids? Now that's a story line that has me intrigued. Must add this to my reading list. I wonder if Germaine will deliver...?

  2. Wonderful intriguing snippet Kathryn. A mortal "in service" to a vampire.


  3. Definitely a different way to go - interesting to see how it works out.

  4. I think they're going to need to do more talking to fully understand one another.

  5. Engaged to a vampire rather daunting, Kathryn. Does he know sh wants him to cure her brother, yet?

  6. A walk down memory lane with this one that I thoroughly enjoyed. Makes me want to read it again. Thanks Kathryn
