WIPitUP - 8/16/17 - Learning to be Little: Kelly's Story - A different dining experience #BDSM #Ageplay


WIP: Work in progress.  WIP it up Wednesday is a hop where writers share portions of the project they're working on with readers.  I really like the idea because it allows me to share something that's still in the creative stage as well as work behind the scenes as a prompt to keep me writing.

The WIP I've chosen to share today is tentatively titled "Learning to be Little: Kelly's Story."  It is a story about Kelly Franklin's first immersion into BDSM with a Daddy Dom. It begins in the present directly after "A Dom's Dilemma" then slips into her past before returning to the present again. It's my first attempt at an age play story, but I hope it will provide a lot more insight into Kelly's character. Though the manuscript has been accepted by Blushing Books, until it's published, I still consider it a WIP.

The mock cover I used for Camp NaNo
I'm continuing where I left off last time. As an only child born to two only children, a young and precocious Kelly Franklin seeks out her Daddy whenever something frightens her. Unfortunately, her Daddy isn't available to soothe her and two strange men were hurting her mother. Scared, Kelly remains as quiet as a mouse in her parent's closet until the police pull her out. Twelve years later, Kelly still suffers nightmares from that time and finds herself walking the streets. When she is approached by a "gentlemanly stranger", who invites her to dinner, Kelly accompanies her new "customer" into a fancy restaurant with well-founded suspicion and a bit of an attitude that could earn her a swat if she isn't careful.


"If you were going to dictate what I drink, why did you bother to ask me what I wanted?"
"Don't be impertinent, child. Give the waiter your selection."
Kelly glanced up at the man who reminded her a bit of a penguin. "Water, please."
"Very good, miss. And you, sir?"
"Just black coffee for me, Andrew."
The waiter gave a polite nod. "Very good, sir."
Once the penguin had waddled away, White leaned across the table toward Kelly. "Overall, I'd say you did very well. I'm proud of you."
Kelly blinked as a flush of uncertain pleasure heated her cheeks. Unsure what to do next, she pulled the square of white linen folded beneath the gleaming silverware and moved to place it on her lap.
"No. I'd prefer you wear your napkin under your chin. Allow me?" Not waiting for her answer, he rose to tie the cloth into a bib around her neck.
Fingering the delicately patterned, snowy-white material, she frowned at him. "Why?"
He returned to his seat. "To catch any spills you might make. If we are to get along, I'll expect you to do as I ask without discussion or delay. I do not care to have my requests questioned."
Giving him a frown, she scooted her chair closer to the table. Though Kelly thought her benefactor might be a little odd, odd was better than cruel any day as far as she was concerned.
When her dinner arrived, Mr. White removed her plate from the waiter's hands, sliced her meat into small, bite-size pieces, as he would for a child, then placed the cut-up food before her. "There you go. You may eat, now, if you wish."
Yup, the guy was certifiable, but Kelly was too hungry to protest, so she picked up her fork, closed her eyes to relish the moment, and used all her will power to keep from shoveling everything into her mouth at once. The roasted turkey and creamy mashed potatoes were the best things she'd eaten in a long while.  Though she truly wished she could savor the meal, she was so hungry she gobbled down everything she'd been served. As she ate, Mr. White plied her with questions, wanting to know if she had a family or friends, where she grew up, where she went to school, etc. She answered them, but, when she asked him a question in turn, he sidestepped it by asking her something else.




Graham White is definitely "auditioning" Kelly to see if she's a likely candidate for him to bring home.

#MFRWHooks - 8/16/17 - Lessons in Love - Pam's choices get drastically reduced #Discipline #OfficeRomance


She needed a job, he needed a personal assistant. What could go wrong?

Welcome back to Book Hooks, a regular Wednesday feature! In this blog loop, we hope to provide you with some tantalizing tidbits in our books.

My submission for this week's Book Hooks is from my 8th novel, Lessons in Love.


Pam Weston didn't have many choices as far as employment went. Her prison sentence saw to that. With limited secretarial skills, and an even more limited budget, she never considered herself executive material. So, when she was ordered to report to the CEO of her company as his new personal assistant, she fully expected to be checking out the "Help Wanted" section of the paper before the day was over.

Robert Peterson knew his management style was not HR approved, but he believed in using the stick as well as the carrot. Employing the tenets of domestic discipline, he helped mold his personal assistants into confident women who recognized their own self-worth. Even so, his unorthodox methods were only one of the reasons many considered the position of his assistant to be a revolving door. To Rob's mind, Pamela Weston was perfect for his purposes, though given her past he expected convincing her to agree to his program would be a challenge.


In this scene, which occurs in chapter eight, Robert Peterson is treating his new executive assistant, Pam Weston, to dinner at his exclusive club where he escorts her to a private dining room so she can ask her questions. However, when Pam refuses to sit down, Rob stands. The moment he does, Pam sits and picks up her menu saying she's not sure what she's going order. Rob steps over and asks her to take his hand. When she finally obeys, he holds her close and assures her she's safe. Then taking her over to the couch, he pulls her down on his lap and continues with his agenda by asking Pam how many rules she thought she'd broken that day. Their discussion is interrupted with a knock at the door.


A young liveried waiter entered, so Pam promptly attempted to rise, but Robert's arm across her thighs prevented her from moving. "No. I want you to stay exactly where you are."
"But—"
He put a finger to her lips. "All I want from you is silence. No protests, no complaints, no excuses. Just rest against me and be quiet, and you may consider that an order."
With a sigh, Pam did as he commanded, while he ordered dinner for them. Because she complained of a finicky stomach, she was getting broiled chicken and rice and he requested sole Florentine for himself, along with a crisp Chablis to go with their meal. The only thing he asked her was what type of dressing she preferred on her salad."
"Ranch?" she asked, uncertain if it was on the list, since she'd been too preoccupied with the man who held her so effortlessly she felt more powerless than a little girl, to register the waiter's selections.
"Very good, sir," the waiter, promptly replied. "It should be about twenty minutes, if that meets your needs."
"That will be fine, Walter. Thank you."
Walter bowed and walked out.
"Now, where were we? Ah, yes, the number of times you chose to disobey me today."
"I didn't choose to do it."
"I disagree. Each time you disobeyed me, you made a conscious decision to do so. I consider that willful disobedience, which I view as much more serious."
Pam crossed her arms over her chest and glared at him. She would not participate willingly, and she would give him a fight if he attempted to discipline her here. His eyebrow rose in challenge, but he was prevented from saying more when his phone rang.


Rob knows Pam is nervous, and took her to his club so she could ask him questions with far more privacy than a restaurant would offer. Unfortunately, the ambiance of his club is making her very uncomfortable as is the man himself.

#SatSpanks - 8/12/17 - A Dom's Dilemma - Jim puts a question to Kelly #BDSM #Spanking


She needed his protection, except he insisted on her honest submission first.

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 first BDSM novel, A Dom's Dilemma, published by Blushing Books.  I'm picking up exactly where we left off the last time, back in October of 2016, and since I haven't been publishing posts for a while, I'm taking some liberty in the sentence count with the length of this excerpt.


In this scene, Jim, a former Texan who works as a police detective by day and lives and plays as a Dom by night, is in the Velvet Chains BDSM medical station working with his new submissive, Kelly Franklin.  When Kelly balks, Jim suspects fear, rather than brattiness, is responsible for her reaction.  After giving her repeated opportunities to tell him what's bothering her, he decides to continue with his original agenda.  However, when Kelly discovers he intends to give her an enema, her fear increases exponentially, which validates his suspicions, but doesn't address Kelly's lack of trust or stubborn refusal to obey.  So, after reminding his reluctaont sub what BDSM is about, Jim gives her an ultimatum.  Say her safe word or submit to his will.  Kelly agrees to do what he wants, despite the persistent inner voice urging her to run away.  Though Jim is not out to humiliate or punish Kelly, her previous experience with medical BDSM was both embarrassing and painful. When she tells him this, he uses extra care and patience with her to coax her through the process, while remaining firm and resolute in his purpose. Her obedience is not optional, but when he asks her if she would like to continue seeing him, she is surprised, elated and a tiny bit uncertain.

  
            Kelly stared up into his dark, unsmiling visage. "Are you thinking you'd like to master me long-term then, Sir?"
            "Yeah, I would. Very much. What about you, Kelly? Do you want me as your sometimes Master/sometimes Dom, teacher, guide and lover?"
            The gamut of emotions she experienced brought a tear of relief trickling down Kelly's cheek. "Yes, Sir. I would like that very much as well. All of it, Sir."
            "I'm pleased to hear that, darlin'. However, the lovin' part is gonna have to wait for another night. As much as I long to be inside you right now, Kelly girl, hearin' your sexy moans as I give you pleasure, and teachin' you what I like in return, I ain't gonna do it, even if you think you're ready. If you're good, I may lay you down and give you one more itty bitty orgasm before we leave here, but that's gonna be it."


Kelly has a past she's not willing to share with anyone, and enemas are a hard limit for her. Unfortunately, she adamantly refuses to say why, so Jim considers the procedure a necessity to ensure his new sub isn't concealing something that could make anal play dangerous for her. Though Jim's been trained and knows what to look for, withholding valuable information from a Dom is never a wise course of action for a sub to take. Another lesson Jim wants to press home, but even he realizes it's too soon to insist Kelly tell him all her secrets.

Guest Post - 8/11/17 - Her Barbarian Master by Maggie Carpenter #Gothic #EroticRomance

Maggie Carpenter is here today to share an excerpt from her Ancient World erotic romance "Her Barbarian Master: Forbidden Love," the second book in her Alpha Male Master series.



Excerpt:

He stopped, and craning her neck she was able to see him pushing open a tall dark wooden door. He didnt have to bend down to pass through it, and the room they entered was far grander than any shed ever imagined. The furniture was made from rough wood, but the room was expansive and boasted a huge bed covered in fur, a wide table with several seats, and a fireplace with furry pelts covering the floor directly in front of it. She was expecting him to sit down and bend her over his lap, and she nervously waited, but he continued to move around the room carrying her over his shoulder, apparently searching for something.
Can you please put me down?
She had used her soft, pleading voice, the one that had worked surprisingly well with Bastian, and was always effective with her parents.
I have yet to punish you.
I dont understand.
Hush, you will, ah, there it is.
He leaned slightly forward, and though her vantage point didnt allow her to see what he was picking up, a moment later a hard piece of wood was laying against the full width of her bottom.
What you feel is my punishment paddle. It is what I use to discipline my women, and now it will discipline you. I would advise you not to put your hands behind you. Usually I tie the wrists before putting a woman over my shoulder, but perhaps it is good youre not bound. You will learn to obey.
Obey?
If you do not do as I tell you, and try to use your hands to cover your backside, the paddle will hit your knuckles. Nothing stops me from swatting once I begin.
But, uh, how long will you?
Three turns, beginning now.
Serenity had no idea what hed meant by three turns, and she didnt have time to ask. The paddle abruptly landed with its hot sting, and letting out a loud yelp, it took all her fortitude not to throw her arms behind her and grab her seat. As he stepped forward he spanked her again, and she urgently clutched his shirt. The paddle struck once more, and this time she squirmed in his hold.
OWWW, please, stop, it hurts.
He didnt respond, but continued his slow walk, swinging the paddle with each stride. The rhythm was steady, and though the predictability helped, it did nothing to mitigate the searing heat permeating her backside. Squeezing her eyes shut, she cried loudly with every swat, until at last he stopped.
That was one turn,he declared. Youll have a moment then I shall resume.
Opening her eyes, she looked around and discovered hed stopped where hed started; a turn was a circle of his room.
Two more? No, please, no. I cant bear it.
You must. You have no choice, but the second turn I will be using my hand.
He moved the few steps to the table and set down the paddle, and though she felt a shred of relief, it was short-lived. To her horror he began sliding up her dress.
NO! Do not bare me, please, no, sir, no.
Sir? The wench is learning, but when I punish, you must call me Master.
Master, please dont expose me.
Had you not been so rude and difficult, I wouldnt. You deserve it.


Blurb:

Serenity has just crossed a line. In an attempt to defend her best friend, the free-spirited, flaxen-haired young woman has challenged the leader of the Bathus, a clan of barbarians that live in a castle ruin above her tiny village.

The leader's son, Killian, decides to chastise her with a sound spanking, and throwing her over his shoulder he carries her away to be punished. Serenity, however, is made of tough stuff. Even with a stinging backside she is unafraid, and yelling her fury she storms off, leaving him stunned and in disbelief.

But when the anger fades, she can't stop thinking about him.

A short time later a rival clan attacks and they are thrown together. Their smoldering chemistry flames, but in the heat of their blazing passion they uncover a diabolical plot that threatens their lives, and the future of the entire clan.

"Storytelling at its best!" The love story is amazing, dangerous, and full of ups and downs. The humor is laugh out loud funny.  A sizzling romance full of danger, sprinkled with humor, and an action-packed plot that will keep you guessing.

MFRWBookHooks - 8/9/17 - Past Interference - Jerry seeks a better understanding of Elly's misgivings #CorbinsBend #Discipline #Abuse


It's Book Hooks Wednesday!  Yay!  And I'm sharing an excerpt from my spanking novella in the Corbin's Bend series, Past Interferencethe sequel to A Simple Misunderstanding. Past Interference was originally part of the Corbin's Bend Valentine's Day collection "Love in the Rockies," but is now being sold separately.

What she needed was the opposite of what she wanted.



In this scene, which occurs near the beginning of Chapter Two, Eleanor Benson (Elly) is six days away from getting married again, and her doubts are eating her alive.  After suffering through a bout of stress-related migraines, she's finally gotten up enough courage to tell her husband-to-be that she's not sure she wants to get married again.  Jerry knows Elly is nervous, but believed he'd managed to convince her he is nothing at all like her first husband, Arthur, who abused her.  Unfortunately, he's beginning to realize Elly's fear of her past may ruin their future together, so he suggests they sit down and discuss why she's having second thoughts, and why he wants to marry her. Elly insists she's not afraid of Jerry, but when he realizes she hadn't been afraid of her first husband when they got married, either, he seeks to understand what happened between them.


"Did he ever kiss you before marriage?” Jerry asked.
Every night he treated her to an effusive peck on the cheek, though she doubted that’s what Jerry meant. “Arthur always acted quite gentlemanly toward me, making sure I was comfortable at all times and had everything I needed. Then, at the end of our evening, he never failed to kiss me goodnight.”
“What about touching? Did he stroke your breasts or rub you between your legs?”
Elly frowned. Discussing intimate details, especially those concerning her first husband, made her vastly uncomfortable. “Not until after we were married. He considered such petting rude and said he respected me too much to take advantage of me that way.”
“Wow. He was a smooth operator. Did he discuss domestic discipline with you at all before you wed?”
“Not in those words. He did say he believed men should be head of their households and wives should defer to their husbands in all things.”
“How did you feel about that?”
Elly had developed a serious problem with submission. She didn’t like being ordered about or controlled by anyone else’s restrictions, which Jerry quickly discovered. As a result, he always got her agreement before he added a new rule. If she disagreed with his proposal, like having to give an accounting of all her expenditures, they compromised by setting a dollar amount. Both of them had to get the other’s approval before purchasing an item that cost more than one hundred dollars. He agreed Christmas and birthday presents could be an exception, but held himself to the same standards he set for her. Arthur, however, wouldn’t even discuss the notion of equality in their marriage. He was the boss, end of story.

 

Elly wants Jerry to insist her fears are foolish, but he's not about to do that.  He loves her, and he takes her concerns seriously.  So, he's determined they discuss her worries and address them before things get out of hand. However, her first marriage was so disastrous, she's terrified to try again.




M/F Domestic Discipline in Colorado.

Blurb:

Valentine's Day in Corbin's Bend.  As Elly Benson readies herself for her second wedding, the doubts and misgivings of any new bride-to-be are exacerbated by the abuse she suffered during her first marriage.

Though she's lived with Jerry Douglas for four months now, and been subject to his discipline more than once, Elly's first husband had been kind and careful with her, too, until the day she vowed to love, honor and obey him.  The lessons she's learned from the past make her doubt she can ever find happiness in the future.

WIPitUP - 8/9/17 - A Simple Misunderstanding - Elly answers questions about Arthur #CorbinsBend #Discipline #Abuse


WIP: Work in progress.  WIP it up Wednesday is a hop where writers share portions of the project they're working on with readers.  I really like the idea because it allows me to share something that's still in the creative stage as well as work behind the scenes as a prompt to keep me writing.

However, today, I've decided to take a break from my WIP in order to share an excerpt from my first book in the Corbin's Bend series, A Simple Misunderstanding, where I tackle the problem of recognizing and addressing spousal abuse in a liberal spanking community. The community's residents right to privacy is paramount, and sometimes rough play can produce bruises that appear similar to abuse. So, as long as both partners deny any problems exist, the community can't take action. To do so would jeopardize the very foundation of what they've struggled so hard to build.

He came to her rescue when she needed him most, almost to lose her when she disobeyed him.


In this scene, which occurs in Chapter 3, Gerald Douglas (Jerry, who is the Corbin's Bend veterinarian) suspects Eleanor Benson (Elly) is being abused. So, he's asked her mentor, Kelli Stevens, to check on her. Both submissives and dominants are assigned mentors in Corbin's Bend to help them with any issues or questions they might have about the domestic discipline dynamic. Though Elly likes Kelli, she blames herself for any problems she and Arthur may be experiencing, so she's not been entirely honest with her mentor. Kelli suspects this and asks if Elly would prefer to have a younger mentor. Elly is surprised by the question, so Kelli points to the bruises on Elly's wrists. Bruises left by the handcuffs Arthur had put on her the night before. Elly promptly covers the marks, insisting they were caused by her struggling and that Arthur had never intended to hurt her. So, Kelli asks if Elly's bruises were an accident.


Nodding, Elly added, “I need to be more accepting of his discipline. He only wants what is best for me.”
“And does he take care of you afterward?”
Elly hesitated for a moment, then nodded again. Arthur often had sex with her after a discipline session, though he didn’t always remove the cuffs and her gag until he was through.
“Do you enjoy your DD relationship with your husband?”
Blinking, Elly wondered what part about domestic discipline she was supposed to enjoy. Did anyone actually enjoy getting spanked? Not in her opinion, they didn’t. She certainly didn’t enjoy Arthur’s punishments. Did she deserve his discipline? Most times, yes. Did she love him? She tried to, but his strict inflexibility angered her sometimes. He’d changed once they’d moved to Corbin’s Bend, but he’d said she’d become lazy and disorganized and needed a firmer hand now. Where was the enjoyment in that? “I think the discipline is what I need to be a better person,” she answered carefully.
“But you can’t say you enjoy it. I don’t mean the punishments, but the rest.”
What rest? What else was there? “I’m still learning, Kelli. It’s not easy.”
Kelli patted her arm. “No, it isn’t. But if you two love each other, you’ll work things out.”
Relieved, Elly nodded more vigorously this time. “I’m sure we will.”

 

Though a part of her knows she's not being entirely truthful with Kelli, Elly blames herself for her husband's firm discipline. She's convinced if she just tries a little harder things will be better between them.


M/F Domestic Discipline in Colorado.

Blurb:

Though Arthur and Eleanor Benson have been practicing domestic discipline for three months since their wedding, he insists moving to Corbin's Bend, where domestic discipline is the norm rather than the exception, will revitalize their marriage. Elly has doubts, but since Arthur is the undisputed head of their household, they move. However, once Arthur becomes immersed in a community where spanking is not only permitted, but encouraged, his personality undergoes a dramatic change. Accusing his submissive wife of being lazy, disorganized and disobedient, he employs creative methods of pain and humiliation to mold Elly from the imperfect woman he married into the perfect woman he desires. And Elly finds herself a virtual prisoner in her own home, accountable only to the man who rules her life with a cane.

In his years as a vet, Jerry Douglas has seen what abuse does to animals, and he recognizes those same signs in Elly Benson during her daily escape to the dog park with her tiny poodle. Jerry steadfastly supports the tenets of domestic discipline and enjoys the freedom Corbin's Bend offers its residents, but he remains fiercely protective of anyone in need of a champion. And when he witnesses evidence of harsh handling, his instinct is to rush in and rescue. Problem is Elly Benson is a married and consenting adult who insists all her bruises and welts are nothing more than a simple misunderstanding between her and her husband, until the day Arthur Benson takes his authority and discipline one-step too far, endangering Elly's life.
