#SatSpanks - 11/18/17 - Learning to be Little - Kelly discovers jealousy for the first time #Ageplay #BDSM



When childhood is denied you, sometimes you need to learn how to be little

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 an excerpt from my upcoming release scheduled for November 27. Similar to Kelly's experience, Learning to be Little is my first attempt at depicting the dynamics of age play, and because it occurs in Kelly's past with her first, but not last, Dom, it is also a little different from other age play stories available today. However, I hope readers who enjoy age play and D/s will find their journey into Kelly's past an entertaining, sometimes funny, sometimes poignant, adventure. 



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 falls on hard times and is taken in by Graham White as his adult little girl. Graham is a strict daddy, but he's also extremely generous with his affections unless Kelly is having one of her naughty days. And, unfortunately, it looks like this day Kelly is going to be very naughty.


On their first Wednesday outing together, Daddy laid out his rules. She wasn't supposed to talk to strangers, even if they spoke to her, unless he gave his permission and introduced her. If he did, she was expected to be polite but reserved, answer any questions with proper respect, but not pose any queries of her own. She was also to keep her eyes lowered except when she was answering a direct question.
Unfortunately, Kelly was naturally curious and outspoken. Two traits which didn't bode well for her on the Wednesday after they'd agreed to continue their relationship for a minimum of two more years. That's when they were approached by another daddy, whose adult little girl appeared to be a few years older than Kelly.
"Graham. I haven't seen you for ages. How are you?"
"Good, Trent. And you?"
"Excellent. This is my new young miss, Susie." He gave the pouting young woman beside him a nudge. "Say hello and make your curtsey to Mr. White, Susie."
Beneath her winter coat, Susie was dressed in a light blue woolen shift with a frilly apron front reminiscent of Alice in Wonderland. Too cute for words, she dipped into a quick, girlish curtsey and said, "Hello, Mr. White."
"Good afternoon, Susie. That is a very pretty dress you're wearing."
Kelly narrowed her eyes as the other girl giggled, gave another curtsey, and replied, "Thank you, sir." Too cute for words all right, and loaded with enough sugar to cause diabetes.




Kelly enjoys going out with her new daddy, but she doesn't care for other little misses flirting with him. Unfortunately, rudeness is never acceptable as Kelly knows and will be most firmly reminded again if she doesn't change her attitude quickly.

Note about the characters in this story: 

Kelly is one of my favorite characters. She can be such a brat at times, which is something her champion Graham White refuses to tolerate. The majority of this story is the earliest, chronologically, since it occurs in Kelly's past, but it is the most recent book in the series. Confused much?

So, if you want to know more about this bratty, sometimes submissive adult little girl, she first appears in Arrested by Love as a secondary character, but like all good primary characters she insisted on having her own story with her new Dom, which developed into A Dom's Dilemma. Both books, originally released in 2010, are being numbered, reedited and reissued with new covers in late November, along with Learning to be Little: Kelly's Story. Its cover is pictured above.

Though Learning to be Little will be the newest book in the series, it actually begins immediately after A Dom's Dilemma, then takes the reader into Kelly's past in a sequel/prequel. The story is a departure for me in that the majority of its chronological time line takes place before the two books I've already published, but it belongs in the middle of the series. I expect two, possibly three more books in the series to be available in the near future.

#MFRWHooks - 11/15/17 - Past Interference - Elly challenges Arthur #CorbinsBend #MFRWAuthor


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.


“I didn’t intend to disappoint or shame him.”
“Of course not. Do you remember why he spanked you the second time?”
“I argued with him, and he took exception to my tone.”
“What did you argue about?”
Elly glanced up to meet his gaze. “My working.” She and Jerry had a similar disagreement, but for a slightly different reason. He didn’t like the thought of her driving to Denver or Boulder during the winter. She could work out of their home, if she wished, but he preferred she didn’t commute. Elly gave in, but planned to broach the topic again in the spring.
“He wanted me to quit my job. I liked being a receptionist, but he believed all my attention should be focused on him, and my working reflected badly on his ability to provide for me. I pointed out that a lot of women worked, and their husbands didn’t seem to mind.”
“And he spanked you for saying that?”
“No, but I got a warning my tone bordered on disrespect.”
“Did it?”
“According to our established rules, yes. I deliberately challenged his authority.”
“So, what was the tipping point?”
“When I told him I thought his attitude was a relic from the dark ages, and he had the social conscience of a Neanderthal.”
Jerry choked. “Yeah. I can imagine he took exception to that.”
“He took more than exception. He took a wooden spoon to my rear end and told me I acted no better than a spoiled brat who needed to be taken in hand.”
“And you disagreed?”
Elly shrugged. “I didn’t much care for his punishment, but he had a point. I was acting like a spoiled brat, because I was mad and didn’t like him telling me what to do.” She stared at Jerry. “I should have the right to work if I want.”

 

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 - 11/15/17 - A Naughty New Year - Predictability breeds assumptions #Holiday #Spanking Romance


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  titled "A Naughty New Year, " which is part of the "Mischief Under the Mistletoe" anthology. The novella is in two parts with the first centering around a New Year's Eve party Kelly Evans and her husband Jim are throwing for their best friends Kyle and Tiffany Sinclair and the fact champagne looks an awful lot like ginger ale.



Kelly Evans is nearly six months pregnant when her Dom husband, Jim, suggests they invite their closest friends over for a private New Year's Eve party. Just a friendly get together, nothing kinky, and no champagne for either of the girls, since Kelly's friend, Tiffany, was a month along further than she was. Given it's New Year's Eve, Kelly feels Jim's no-champagne edict isn't fair, but Jim warns her if she goes against his wishes, she will be punished. Though Kelly understands Jim's reasoning, she still feels he's merely being over-protective, and as much as she loves him, a sip of champagne never hurt anyone. That is until now.


When the other couple had left, Kelly regarded Jim with an uncertain look. "Would you have really punished Tiffany if she'd stayed?"
"You ever hear me make an idle threat?"
"No, Sir."
"I'd say you got your answer, then. Why don't we go to bed? We can clean up in the morning."
"Bed?"
"Bedroom," he corrected. "You and I have some unfinished business to see to before we go to sleep. Wouldn't you agree?"
"Are you angry?" she asked softly.
Jim understood Kelly sought some reassurance from him, but he'd already buffered his response quite a bit in the kitchen and wasn't sure further comforting would be in her best interest. So, he folded his arms across his chest and stared down at her. "No. Not angry. Did you drink champagne tonight?"
"Yes, Sir." She bent her head as her voice emerged with the tentativeness of a frightened child.
"Then, I suggest you go ready yourself while I fetch the cane."
Her head snapped up. "Cane? But you said you'd use your hand."
"No. I only stated the number you'd be receivin', not how I intended to deliver 'em."
Eyes welling with tears, she gazed at him. "You said five whacks. Level one punishments are swats given on a bare bottom with your hand. You didn't say anything about a cane."
"The word 'whack' is generic, Kelly. You know that. I never meant for it to imply that all your punishments would be hand to butt."



Kelly had known there would be consequences for drinking. Jim had warned her. Though he understands she wanted to party a little on New Year's Eve, the fact she decided she'd risk displeasing him and accept a spanking in order to do what she wanted made him think he needed to be a little less predictable in his punishments.




Note about the characters in this story: 

Kelly and Jim are two of my favorite characters. Kelly can be such a brat at times and Jim gives her a lot of leeway, but even he has limits. This story is the latest, chronologically, in their time line, though by the time its published it should be the fourth in a series subtitled Unexpected Consequences.

So, if you want to know how their sometimes stormy relationship started, they first appeared in Arrested by Love as secondary characters, but like all good primary characters insisted on their own story, which developed into A Dom's Dilemma. Both books, originally released in 2010, are being numbered, reedited and reissued with new covers in late November, along with a new third book, entitled Learning to be Little: Kelly's Story. Though the newest book in the series, Learning to be Little begins immediately after A Dom's Dilemma, it then takes the reader into Kelly's past, where she shares her introduction to age play and BDSM with Graham White in a sequel/prequel. The story is a departure for me in that the majority of its chronological time line takes place before the two books I've already published, but it belongs in the middle of the series. I expect two, possibly three more books in the series to be available in the near future.

Guest Post - 11/14/17 - Chosen by the High Judge by Jaye Peaches #Erotic #SciFi #Romance

She can’t hide from her alien judge. Whenever she is aroused her skin changes color. 



Excerpt:

She was still trembling. She had to tell him, because at the moment there was no choice. She couldn’t follow in the footsteps of Astra.
“I’m a virgin,” she blurted.
His hand dropped and his eyes widened in surprise. “You’ve never been with a man?”
She smirked, feeling a little mollified by the admission. “Well, yes, but not that way, and just because I get drunk… not all students…” she added feebly.
He laughed softly. “Forgive me, I have been presumptuous with my views of human copulation. Is it not your way to fuck once you come of age?”
Zara rubbed her hands up and down her arms. The direction of the conversation was creeping into the intimate, but if that was what he wanted from her, then he had to understand her better.
“It used to be something you did on the wedding night, you know.” She shrugged a little nervously. “Not so much like that these days. I’m twenty. I’ve just not met the right man.”
“Mmm, I see. Then if I was to tell you I promise to take your virginity with consideration, would you still accept my alternative sentence?”
Fuck, he’s keen.
He wanted her. She tingled all over and she shouldn’t. It couldn’t be right. He was going to punish her, fuck her, do whatever the hell he liked. “And then, after you take my virginity?” she asked slowly.
“You are mine,” he said softly.
“I don’t know, sir,” she stuttered, feeling overwhelmed and uncertain.
“I want you, Zara. I want to punish your sweet bare ass with my hand. I want to witness you come when I demand it. I want to enter you. You will submit and serve me every day. You will stay naked in my presence. In return I shall ensure your privacy is protected, your criminal files kept confidential and you will come to no harm.”
The room was hot. Or felt hot. The blood had rushed to her cheeks and she swayed.



Blurb:

After twenty-year-old Zara Webb is arrested for delinquent behavior while living as an exchange student in an alien colony, she is placed into the custody of High Judge Galen Hosta. For the duration of her sentence, she will live in Galen’s home and under his authority, and the stern, handsome warrior will have the right not only to punish her in any way he sees fit, but also to take her to his bed and enjoy her beautiful body in any way he pleases.

Within moments of her sentence being pronounced, Zara finds herself over Galen’s lap for a painful, embarrassing bare-bottom spanking. But when she kneels at his feet, blushing crimson as she is made to thank him for her well-deserved punishment in the most humiliating way possible, she cannot hide her helpless arousal.

Over the coming days, Zara discovers that Galen’s mastery of her body will be far more thorough than she would have thought possible, yet even as she is brought to one intense, shameful climax after another, her need for him only grows stronger. But when her sentence is complete and she is no longer his prisoner, will she choose to stay by his side as his mate?


Publisher’s Note: Chosen by the High Judge is a stand-alone book set in the same world as Chosen by the Governor. It includes spankings and sexual scenes. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.

#MFRWHooks - 11/8/17 - Acting Lessons - Kate calls her angry "frover" #KissMeKate #MFRWAuthor


He'd taught her how to act in college, now he intended to teach her how to behave.

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 5th novel, 
Acting Lessons.



He was a strict and demanding college professor turned professional director who excelled at giving acting lessons.  She was his shy and uncertain former student who became a professional actress under his tutelage.  They fell in love, married, and won two Tony Awards before tragedy struck and a simple kiss ripped them apart.

After a six month separation, Peter Thorton decides to take matters into his own hands by making his famous wife, Kate, an offer she wouldn't refuse.  Plainly put, he wants her back and he intends to do whatever is necessary to achieve his goal, even if it means giving his stubborn, willful leading lady a daily reminder over his knee that she promised to obey him.



In this scene, which occurs near the start of chapter seven. Peter is taking Kate to see her doctor after she'd injudiciously injured her knee in a pique. She's seated on his lap in the back of his limousine, and they've just resolved an issue regarding the dissolution of their divorce after they had finished making love for the first time since their separation. With that behind them, Peter wants to know about the huge sparkling diamond she's wearing on her left hand. A diamond he didn't give her. Having forgotten all about the ring, she twists it on her finger as she tells him about Thomas, whom she claims is a friend more than a lover. A frover. Peter's questions remind her she'd also forgotten about a date she had scheduled with Thomas that evening. So, she asks to borrow Peter's cell phone.


            "What? So, you can call your ex-boyfriend? I'm a lenient and understanding man, darling. But trust me, not that understanding."
"Yeah, yeah, I know. Give me your phone," she insisted wiggling her fingers.
Shaking his head, Peter pulled his cell from his pocket and handed it to her. "I'll be exacting a usage charge for this, ma'am," he said giving his eyebrows a villainous waggle.
Kate stuck her tongue out at him as she dialed, then waited. Thomas answered on the first ring. "Hello?"
"Thomas, it's Kate," she informed him, batting at the fingers attempting to tickle the inside of her ear with a curl they'd captured.
"Kate! Where the hell have you been?" Definitely a furious 'frover' shout. Even though Kate pulled the phone away, she had no difficulty hearing him. "I've been calling and leaving messages for two days now. Where are you?"
When a warm puff of air blew in her ear, she put her hand over Peter's mouth and frowned at him. Where was she? Nope, not a good question to answer right then. "I had a slight accident," she replied, tentatively drawing Peter's cell back to her ear. "I'm on the way to the doctor's now."
"Are you hurt?" She yanked the phone away with a wince as Thomas's low voice boomed as if she had the cell on speaker. "Which doctor? Give me his address and I'll meet you. You can tell me what happened when I get there."
Peter was now licking the palm of Kate's hand in between pressing tiny kisses, and she grimaced at him. "No, Thomas. You don't need to meet me. I'll call you again, once I get settled."
"Why not invite him to join us, Kate? The more the merrier, right?" Peter asked in a husky murmur.


Despite Peter's possessiveness, Kate doesn't feel guilty about dating Thomas. He was her staunch supporter when she was in sore need of someone. She'd made no promises to Thomas, though she knew he expected to marry her once her divorce was final. Problem is she'd never fallen out of love with Peter, and, now, due to her own shortsightedness,  she has an angry "frover" to deal with. And having the two men together in the same city was complicated enough without even considering them in the same building, let alone the same room.
M/F, DD and a staged production of Kiss Me, Kate.

WIPitUP - 11/8/17 - A Naughty New Year - Pregnant ladies are not supposed to drink #BDSM #Anthology #Holiday


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  titled "A Naughty New Year, " which is part of the "Mischief Under the Mistletoe" anthology. The novella is in two parts with the first centering around a New Year's Eve party Kelly Evans and her husband Jim are throwing for their best friends Kyle and Tiffany Sinclair and the fact champagne looks an awful lot like ginger ale.


Some story background:

            Kyle is a police officer and Jim is detective, and they are both Doms, though Kyle is far more easy going than Jim as far as protocol goes. Below is a little of their history from Jim's POV.

            The two men had grown closer after Kelly embarrassed them by throwing a disruptive temper tantrum at the police station where they both worked. The fact that Kyle had been Kelly's Dom a few months back didn't bother Jim quite so much now that he'd wrapped a ring around his lady's finger. In addition, Kyle had always been secretly in love with Tiffany, so his stint with Kelly had been more like biding his time putting a thoroughbred through its paces rather than riding the filly he intended to spend the rest of his life with. However, Kelly never did things half way, so she demanded Kyle's attention even when she suspected he wasn't the right man for her.
            Adding insult to injury, instead of dealing with Kelly himself, Kyle handed her over to Jim for punishment. Being traded like a pack of baseball cards did not settle well with the temperamental thoroughbred. Not at all. He and Kelly had had a rough start due to some unfortunate miscommunication in their early days, which when combined with Jim's initial reluctance to take up the reins on a permanent basis, caused Kelly more than a little heartache and uncertainty. He didn't mind applying the whip now and again, but keeping Kelly in line back then proved to be a full time job, which he'd neither signed up for nor wanted. However, when her life was threatened, everything changed. He grew protective and possessive of the feisty submissive as he realized he was smitten. Big time.




Kelly Evans is nearly six months pregnant when her Dom husband, Jim, suggests they invite their closest friends over for a private New Year's Eve party. Just a friendly get together, nothing kinky, and no champagne for either of the girls, since Kelly's friend, Tiffany, was a month along further than she was. Given it's New Year's Eve, Kelly feels Jim's no-champagne edict isn't fair, but Jim warns her if she goes against his wishes, she will be punished. Though Kelly understands Jim's reasoning, she still feels he's merely being over-protective, and as much as she loves him, a sip of champagne never hurt anyone. That is until now.


As the night drew on, Kelly blushed and giggled a lot. Tiffany, however, grew exceptionally loud as she told everyone how Kyle had offered to help her with the laundry by doing his whites, unaware she'd added dye to the fabric softener bottle as a joke. "So, he was stuck wearing hot pink underwear until we could bleach most of it out. They're still a pretty blush color."
"Not funny," Kyle murmured beneath his breath.
Amused, Jim regarded Kelly with a twinkle in his eye. "Don't get any ideas," he warned.
"I don't have the faintest notion what you're talking about," she simpered before taking another sip.
When Tiffany continued to disclose other intimate stories with uncharacteristic amusement, Kyle turned to Jim with a puzzled expression. "Do you understand what's going on?"
"Precisely what I said might happen?"
With a frown at his wife, Kyle asked, "Are you drinking champagne?"
"And what if I am?" she challenged. "I'm an adult."
"You're also pregnant and drunk. Not a good combination by half."
Tiffany snorted then added insult to injury by sticking her tongue out at him. When Kelly slapped a hand over her mouth and giggled, Jim gave her a warning swat. "Behave."
"You'd best put that pink little tongue back where it belongs, young lady, or it will be covered in soap when we get home."
Tiffany frowned. "You can be a real party pooper at times. You know that, Kyle Sinclair?"
"And you can be a troublesome brat when it suits you, Mrs. Sinclair. I'd say it's time I take you home." He gave Tiffany a slight push, but she refused to move.
"I don't wanna go, yet. The party's just starting. And you're a poopy head."
Kyle's eyes grew wide. "What did you just call me?"
"A poopy head," she repeated, slurring her words a little.
"How much champagne did you drink tonight?"
"Not enough," she claimed, holding up her glass. "Kelly, may I have another?"
Kelly started to rise, but Jim clamped a hand to her waist and shook his head. "You've both had your fill, I think. That bubbly stuff has clearly gone to your heads.
"I'm not drunk," Kelly protested with a lopsided pout.
"I'll bet if Kyle were to give you a breathalyzer test right now, you'd fail."
Kelly shrugged and Tiffany lowered her raised glass with a glower at Kelly. "Your husband's being a poopy head, too."
Though she smiled, Kelly wisely chose not to echo Tiffany's sentiment.
Kyle placed both his hands on Tiffany's hips and lifted her from his lap. "Enough. Jim, could you collect our coats, please?" he requested as he stood to steady Tiffany
"Sure." Jim helped Kelly to her feet and made sure she could stand without problem before he strode into the bedroom to fetch their coats. Once there, he laughed silently. He found it difficult to maintain a stern demeanor when he was struggling not to laugh out loud, but his role as Kelly's husband and Dom required him to take a firm stance. He would ensure his unrepentant wife paid for her naughtiness, but it was the after-party he intended to have with her that perked his true interest.
Tiffany was still arguing with Kyle when Jim returned.
"You go home, if you want. I'm staying. I'll call a taxi when I'm ready to leave."
"Unless you want me to put you over my knee here and now, I suggest you button that unruly mouth of yours and get your coat on.
Tiffany crossed her arms and stamped her foot. "No!"
His lips tight with annoyance, Kyle glanced over at Jim.
Folding Tiffany's woolen coat over his arm, Jim moved closer to the recalcitrant woman. "You're more than welcome to stay with us, Tiffany. We'd love to have you, but I feel I should warn you about something before you decide. If you choose to remain, you will be subject to the same discipline Kelly will be receiving tonight. So, you can either face the consequences of your actions with your husband, in the privacy of your own home, or face them here. Publicly. With me and Kelly. Your choice. Though I think you'll discover I'm far less gentle than Kyle in that regard."
Tiffany snatched her coat from Jim's hold without another word, but Kyle stepped forward to help her put it on.
"Thank you both," Kyle murmured. "The appetizers were delicious, and the company delightful as always."
"Any time, bud," Jim replied with a warm smile.



Though Jim appears easy-going and forgiving about Kelly's disregard for his wishes, she's going to discover that appearances can be deceiving and even smiling Doms can pack a wallop.




Note about the characters in this story: 

Kelly and Jim are two of my favorite characters. Kelly can be such a brat at times and Jim gives her a lot of leeway, but even he has limits. This story is the latest, chronologically, in their time line, though by the time its published it should be the fourth in a series subtitled Unexpected Consequences.

So, if you want to know how their sometimes stormy relationship started, they first appeared in Arrested by Love as secondary characters, but like all good primary characters insisted on their own story, which developed into A Dom's Dilemma. Both books, originally released in 2010, are being numbered, reedited and reissued with new covers in late November, along with a new third book, entitled Learning to be Little: Kelly's Story. Though the newest book in the series, Learning to be Little begins immediately after A Dom's Dilemma, it then takes the reader into Kelly's past, where she shares her introduction to age play and BDSM with Graham White in a sequel/prequel. The story is a departure for me in that the majority of its chronological time line takes place before the two books I've already published, but it belongs in the middle of the series. I expect two, possibly three more books in the series to be available in the near future.
