#SatSpanks - 9/12/15 - Mortal Illusions - Even condemned prisoners have rights #Vampires #Spanking

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, but can only watch with quiet dread as one of the vampires sticks a two inch needle into the mortal prisoner's neck. Sickened, Claire stares at the man she thought she loved as shock and dismay flash across her face.

             How can you do this?” she asked, her voice a mere whisper.
            “This doesn't concern you, Claire.”
            “Doesn't it?  I believe one of your own men wants to do the same thing to me.”
            “Which is exactly why I want you out of here.  Now!”
            “Why?  So I won't discover what you have in store for me, later?”  When he stiffened at the accusation but didn't refute her, Claire felt a cold knot of fear form in her stomach.  Shivering, she wrapped her arms about herself.  “Even a condemned prisoner has a right to know what she faces.”

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. I'm not sure that wrapping her arms around herself is going to provide any protection. Neither will her words.

  2. Intriguing. I certainly understand her need to know!

  3. That would be enough to make me panic!

  4. Seriously, I need to find out what's in that needle. Death or sleep? It's such a teasing eight sentences...“Doesn't it? I believe one of your own men wants to do the same thing to me.” Do what? Do what? Have I mentioned I love vampire stories? :)

  5. Yeah, I'd be ready to run. Don't even want to know what might be in store.

  6. Oh my, not sure if I would want to find out or not! Intriguing snippet Kathryn. I want to know what's in the needle too!
