#SatSpanks - 6/20/15 - Mortal Illusions - Making the worst mistake of her life #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 and wants to intervene.

            “Don't do it, Claire.  I beg you.  Germaine has enough battles without fighting for you, too.”
            Claire knew Phillipa spoke the truth, except that didn't make her dilemma any easier.  She didn't enjoy open defiance, but her conscience wouldn't permit her to ignore a fellow human's suffering.
            “You'd be making the worst mistake of your life, Claire,” Phillipa added in a near whisper.  “Germaine would fight to the death rather than let you--”
            “What's in that bag?” Claire interrupted as she watched Auguste, who was stationed at Sybill's head, place a plastic fluid-filled bag on a long pole that rose directly from the platform.  Uncoiling the clear, flexible line, he leaned forward and said something to the restrained woman, who lay exhausted and resigned on the dais--the deep rise and fall of her chest her only movement.

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.

  1. Sometimes we just can't help ourselves.

  2. A very intense scene, everyone has to do that they think's right.

  3. Great scene Kathryn, very intense and intriguing.


  4. Can't help but wonder what's in the bag... and I don't think it's going to be anything particularly pleasant! I hope Claire manages to restrain herself and doesn't do anything stupid... these Vampire types are unpredictable at best... but deliciously dark and intriguing :D

  5. Oh no. It sounds like she's about to make a very big mistake.

  6. Intriguing Kathryn.. What's in the bag??:)
