#SatSpanks - 11/15/14 - Mortal Illusions - Kindness is a blindfold and a Kleenex #Vampires #Paranormal


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, just before they were accosted by Claire's former boy friend, Harry.  Harry 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, who is now her fiance, about a woman who claims she was tortured by Germaine's council. Germaine assures her the female was given every consideration due her.


            “How kind of you. What did you do, offer her a blindfold, a pillow and a Kleenex?”
            “Perhaps. But more likely Arthur would have seen to it that she did not suffer overlong. He is a bit more businesslike about his relationships than I, but he is not unkind. I wouldn't let him remain with us if he was.”
            “I can't tell you just how much that reassures me. You strip women and beat them, but you're benignly generous to them afterwards.”
            Germaine gave her a look that suggested he didn't appreciate her sarcasm, but when he gestured for them to continue their walk, Claire didn't argue. She did, however, refuse the offer of his arm. They walked side-by-side, their differences pulling them apart, while their love and desire to understand and be understood vied to keep them from separating altogether.


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.
