#SatSpanks - 5/30/15 - Mortal Illusions - Council sanctioned torture #Paranormal #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, Claire and Phillipa are witnessing the trial of Sybill, a mortal female accused of approaching another group for the purpose of requesting transformation.  A procedure which Germaine's group expressly forbids.  In addition, she was observed relating vampire activities to an outsider, and going so far as to encourage her companion to seek out the mortal constabulary. The vampire responsible for Sybill claims to know nothing about her illicit activities and effectively removes his protection, leaving her fate for Germaine's council to decide. However, when the men move in to tie the other woman down to keep her from hurting herself, Claire starts to get very worried.

             “Hurting herself?  Why would she want to hurt herself?”  When Phillipa didn't answer, Claire started toward Sybill, but Phillipa stopped her by grabbing her arm.  Yanking free, Claire turned to glare at her friend.  “How can you just stand by and watch them torture her?”
            “I didn't say I watched--I just don't interfere.  Look, Claire, if it were you up there, I'd fight like a tigress to save you.  But for that she-devil, I wouldn't raise my little finger.  She's more likely to stab you in the back than thank you for your efforts.  And if you were to help her, you'd most likely end up taking her place.”
            “If Arthur has his way about things, that's exactly where I will end up.  I'm sorry, but I can't let them do this.  Not without a protest at least.”

Claire is discovering just how different vampires are from mortals. Afraid she's fallen in love with a man who will only break her heart, she's about to learn how dangerous her position actually is.

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