SatSpanks - 2/15/14 - Mortal Illusions - Vampires who whip women are dangerous for the heart #SatSpanks #Vampires #Romance

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 under production.

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 has sought Germaine out at his private night club for the first time, only to discover his club offers much more than drinks for those with and without fangs.  The day room at Illusions is equipped to administer punishments as well.  While Claire is trying to reconcile with Germaine, one of his vampires enters the club with his mate in tow and demands permission to publicly chastise her.  What no one expects, however, is for Germaine not only to agree, but call for a supporting vote from his council. When the group unanimously agrees to the punishment, Claire doesn't think, she reacts by picking up a stool and striking the punishing vampire.  Phillip, who is unfazed by Claire's attack, demands she be punished for interfering with his council-sanctioned punishment.

When Germaine agrees Phillip's grievance is valid, he informs the room that he will carry out Claire's punishment himself.  Amazingly, the council protests, forcing Germaine into an open challenge with Phillip.  A sword duel to first blood.  Phillipa and Claire are seated on the sidelines to watch when Phillipa admits that she suspected Germaine had caught on to her and Phillip's plan.  When Claire asks what she meant, Phillipa asks if Germaine initiated Claire this past weekend.

            Claire hesitated briefly before she decided she owed no loyalty to a man who would permit such barbarity, even if he didn't apply the whip himself. Anger heating her cheeks, she gazed at her new friend. “Although I hate to admit it right now, yes he did, why?”
            Phillipa looked confused by Claire's statement, but said, “Because he was acting like a teething fledgling all last week. Irritable, cranky, out-of-sorts, and totally unreasonable. He left here Sunday night muttering about witches' spells and Latin incantations, and returned early yesterday afternoon grumbling about answering machines and errands. May I ask what happened?”
            Even anger couldn't loosen Claire's tongue that much. “It's a long story, and if I ever decide to speak to the man again, I think I should straighten things out with him first before I discuss it with anyone else.”

Claire is discovering these vampires live by different rules than those governing the mortal world, and she's afraid she's fallen in love with a man who abuses women.

  1. A complex snippet and wholly engaging. I don't think I'd want to piss off a vampire, especially one involved in a duel at the moment.

  2. I agree with what Natasha said, I'd be scared to make a vampire angry!

  3. Making vampire's angry is not wise. I'm getting shivers just thinking about it.

  4. I think she need to clamp down on her anger before it leads her to a world of hurt.

  5. I wouldn't tangle with a dueling vampire. Whether or not she thinks he is right or wrong.

  6. Wow - that was a lot to inhale! An angry vampire ... is she INSANE?

  7. This is one snippet with some bite. ;)

  8. Yikes. Claire sounds like she is seething mad. I can only imagine the chemistry that's going to be created between these two.

  9. Wow, I would not want to piss off one vampire dom, let alone a room full of them.

  10. I hope she learns that punishment is different than abuse.


I love hearing from readers, so thank you for making my day! Writers with any thoughts at all (Naughty or otherwise) love comments, and I'm no exception.
