#MFRWHooks - 3/30/16 - Acting Lessons - Keeping Secrets #DD #KissMeKate

Splendorous things can happen when the mind and body are in tune.

This material is NSFW (Not Safe For Work). If you’re not over 18, please explore elsewhere.

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 in chapter six, Peter Thorton has just finished giving his wife, Kate, a relatively mild spanking for defying his instructions, and is preparing to make love to her for the first time in over two years.  Peter adores Kate, but he's not above teasing her a little before giving her what she wants and needs as he gently nibbles her into a writhing mass of desire.  However, given her injured knee, he also wants to ensure nothing they do aggravates her torn meniscus, so he gently restrains her when she tries to counter-thrust against his pleasuring. Since they haven't been together for nearly six months, Peter enters Kate slowly to give her body time to adjust.  However, passion soon claims them and when Peter climaxes, Kate realizes they didn't use protection. But what stuns her most is Peter's revelation that even though their divorce paperwork was filed and considered final in two days time, he ascertained they were still legally married.

             "Are you saying you knew if we made love today that our divorce would be nullified, and you didn't think to mention it first?" she asked, staring at him in disbelief.
            "No, Peter.  You're right, I didn't read all the legalese jargon, but you already knew that, too.  Didn't you?"
            "I suspected as much."
            "Yeah, I'm sure you did.  And the thought never occurred to you to at least mention the judge's handy, dandy little clause before you fucked me?"
            His eyebrows drew together in an angry frown.  "I didn't fuck you, wife, as you so charmingly put it.  I made love to you, and I don't like what you're insinuating."
            "Insinuating?  That's just the facts, Jack.  I can't believe you so cavalierly dismissed my feelings as inconsequential."  She started to get out of bed, but he held her in place.  "Let me go.  I need to use the toilet and clean up.  Let's both hope our coming together hasn't resulted in another mistake."

Kate is stunned. Peter knew if she made love with him that their divorce decree would be nullified, and yet he hadn't thought to mention that small, insignificant detail before taking her to bed? 
M/F, DD and a staged production of Kiss Me, Kate.

#WIPitUP - 3/30/16 - A Dom's Dilemma - No touching without permission #BDSM #Spanking

He demanded her obedience, but what she wanted was his love.

It's WIP it UP Wednesday, and that means I get to share another teasing excerpt from one of my books.  Yay!

My submission for this week is from my 4th book, A Dom's Dilemma, a BDSM/spanking novel that is sometimes playful, sometimes serious and sometimes terrifying, published by Blushing Books.  Kelly and Jim, the two main characters, were secondary characters in Arrested by Love.  Though this story stands on its own, if you read Arrested by Love, you'll most likely recognize some of the scenes, since we see a little bit of Kyle and Tiffany in this book, too.

In this excerpt, near the end of Chapter Ten, Detective Jim Evans is tending to Kelly Franklin after he's administered an exceptionally harsh punishment for her defiance and disobedience.

An experienced Dom, Jim has no problem punishing a sub when she's been naughty, but Kelly chose to deliberately defy an order after he took pains to stress her disobedience would carry a significant penalty. Unfortunately, Kelly thought he'd forgive her for the surprise visit she decided to pay him at his precinct, which forced Jim to follow through on his promise. Afterward,  he needs to make sure his lesson stuck, since he never wants to be so harsh with her ever again.

             Kelly gave another long sigh.  She really didn't want to do this anymore, especially since the last lesson was the one that hurt the most.  Finally, she said, "Never display a show of affection toward you in public."
            When he didn't answer for a moment, she got worried.  That was what she'd done that had gotten him so angry, wasn't it?  All she'd wanted was to show him how deeply she felt and he'd pushed her away.
            She must have tensed, because he said, "Easy, darlin'.  Be still now.  I'm not angry, I'm just thinkin'."
            "Wasn't that right?" she asked, turning to gaze up at him.
            He appeared to be seriously considering her question.  "Well, I do believe it was a lesson you learned today, although it's not one I meant to teach."
            "What do you mean?"
            "Kelly, you're a very demonstrative person, which isn't necessarily bad, even though it is inappropriate for our current situation."
            She shook her head.  "I'm not sure I understand.  Do you want me to touch you or not?"
            He bent down to place a kiss on her hair.  "Darlin', of course I want you to touch me, but you shouldn't do it without my permission.  You do know that is one of the rules, don't you, Kelly?"

Kelly knows she makes a lousy sub.  She has a temper and a mouth that constantly get her into trouble, but despite the harshness of Jim's punishment she sees something in the Dom that makes her want him all the more. Problem is, he may decide he doesn't want her.

M/F, Kinky happenings in rural Connecticut.

A Dom's Dilemma is available for sale at Blushing Books in a variety of formats.  If you'd like to read more, I've provided a 3 chapter preview on my web site's Spanking Romance page.

Guest Post - 3/29/16 - A Cowboy's Pleasure by Anita Philmar #EroticRomance @AnitaPhilmar

Today, Anita Philmar is sharing an excerpt of her steamy novella, "A Cowboy's Pleasure," and treats us to a interview with her hero cowboy, John Bristol Smith


            “Then tell him straight out what you’re after.” Gab carried the tray over to the table in front of the couch where his wife sat. He handed her a glass then walked the other drink to John.
            “Shouldn’t we, at least, give him a little background on us first?” She queried.
            After taking the glass, John stepped to a wingback chair and perched on the edge. “I’m sure whatever type of job you’re offering, I’ll be more than willing to work for you.”
            Gab chuckled, “You’re right. Most men would, but this requires you not discuss anything that happens within these walls with anyone.”
            “Can you do that, John?” Mrs. Van Pelt sipped her drink and her eyes undress him.
            Uncomfortable with her probing inspection, he glanced at her husband. “I have no one to tell. Remember, I’m new in town.”
            “Yes, you are a God sent. Tess, here, is getting a little restless. She’s used to getting what she wants right away. And well, I’m afraid I’ve kept her waiting too long.” Gab turned to his wife and smiled. “I must admit, now that you are here, I believe the plan has more merit than I previously gave it.”
            “See, I told you. It’ll be just like old times.” Tess patted the spot next to her on the couch and her husband sat beside her.
            Sorting through every possible job he could envision, John struggled to come up with the task they wanted to achieve. Mrs. Van Pelt seemed excited by the possibility of him working with them. So perhaps, they liked him and would want him to hire on for a few months, maybe even longer.
            “Then I guess we better see if John is open to the idea of making love to you,” Gab said and lifted his glass. “So what do you say?”


Having traveled across the country to escape the war between the states, John Bristol Smith needs a job, any job.

Told of a potential job, he arrives at the interview with high expectation. Nothing, however, in his life prepared him for the nature of this assignment. Tess Van Pelt wants excitement and she means to have it.

Her husband is more than willing to pay for whatever she wants and she wants John.

Is this a job or a fantasy?

Character Interview

Character Name: John Bristol Smith

Please give a warm welcome to John Bristol Smith from A Cowboy’s Pleasure by Anita Philmar today as we sit down and see what makes him tick.

Q: So tell us about yourself. What got you in the crosshairs for your author?

Oh, Anita, she fell in love with me while writing A Country Doctor’s Bride, which is not out yet because she stopped to write A Cowboy’s Pleasure. You see she liked the idea of me a bad boy. In truth, I was simply looking for a job. Can I help it if that job is to give a woman pleasure?

Q: What was it that drew you to your mate?  Don’t have a mate. Don’t want one at the moment, but I sure could fall for someone like Tess Van Pelt. Luck for me her husband doesn’t mind sharing so we can have some real fun.

Q: What’s your favorite type of naughty fun?  Before meeting the Van Pelts, I would have said taking my love outside in an open field, but the Van Pelts have shown me how much fun a threesome can be. Can’t wait until I’m invited back to do it again.

Q: Boxers, briefs or Commando on a man? commando – boxers and brief were really used much in the 1860s and being rather on the poor side of the fence. I usually go without.

Q: If a woman wants to seduce you, what's one sure fire trick they can do to seduce you? Just reach for the buttons of her dress and show me the sweet swell of her breasts. I want to release my holy poker and nail her right then and there.

Q: What is the one place on a woman's body that you know will drive them wild-in and out of bed?  Oh, women are very sensual beings. I love kissing them from tip of their nose to the toes, with a few detours along the way. I enjoy sucking on their nipples, clit and tasting their sweet cream.

Q: What was one of the most embarrassing things your author did to you in A Cowboy’s Pleasure?  Had me rush the moment with Tess. I mean with the lady lying in front of me naked, how could I not dive for a taste of her pussy and lick her moist center.

#6BestHop - 3/27/16 - A Simple Misunderstanding - Consequences for disrespect #CorbinsBend #SpankingRomance

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

Welcome to Sunday's Six of the Best Blog Hop, where we share six paragraphs from a published novel or a work in progress.  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 week's excerpt is a sneak peek from my fourth spanking romance, A Simple Misunderstanding, which is the seventh book in the Corbin's Bend series.  I hope you enjoy it.

In this scene, which occurs near the beginning, Eleanor Benson (Elly) has some exciting news she wants to share with Gerald Douglas (Jerry).  She's seen Jerry in the dog park on an almost daily basis since she and her husband moved into Corbin's Bend, but only started opening up to him a few days ago.  As the Corbin's Bend vet, Jerry has expressed an interest in Elly's dog, Muffin.  His calm, steady manner soothes Elly's wounded spirit, and the fact his observant eyes seem to notice more about her than she'd like both attracts and frightens her.  

All the same, he's the first person she thinks of when she has news to share.  So, she heads over to the dog park with her toy poodle, Muffin, in the hope he'll meet her there.  He does.  Excited, she tells him she had three women visit her that morning.  Wanting to hear more, Jerry starts asking questions until he discovers Elly risked suffering her husband's fury if he discovered she'd come to the dog park without his permission first. Frightened for her, Jerry gives her a swat for putting herself at risk, then immediately apologizes as he admits that he worries about her. Surprised, Elly tells him he doesn't need to worry. Arthur loves her, but as she rushes home she fears her strict, unyielding husband may take exception to her tardiness. Calling him, she realizes just how right she was when he asks if she found chatting with their neighbors more important than keeping her word to her husband.

Elly’s heart sank to her feet. No matter how she replied to the question, she’d be punished for the wrong answer. “I’m sorry.”
“Yes, I’m sure you are, but that doesn’t address the issue, does it?”
“No, sir.”
“Your perpetual tardiness is yet another sign of your inability to manage your time properly. I thought I’d made it clear during our previous sessions that timeliness and tidiness are signs of respect, and to ignore either reflects a blatant disrespect to me.”
“I didn’t want to be rude….”
“But you were. To me. I am not pleased, Eleanor. However, you knew I wouldn’t be when you made your choice, didn’t you?”


Arthur has given Elly rules he expects her to follow. Disobedience results in punishment no matter the excuse.

M/F Domestic Discipline in Colorado.


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.

#SatSpanks - 3/26/16 - Past Interference - Elly repents pushing Jerry #SpankingRomance #CorbinsBend

Sometimes you have to break the rules to get what you need.

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 new spanking novella in the Corbin's Bend series, Past Interferencethe sequel to A Simple Misunderstanding.  It used to be available only as part of the Love in the Rockies anthology, but is now being sold as a single release.

In this scene, which occurs in Chapter Five, Eleanor Benson (Elly) has made more than a few mistakes, one of which results in her throat being injured when she experiences another run in with her ex-husband.  Not permitted to talk until the doctor gives her permission, Elly is reduced to communicating with a white board.  With her wedding to Jerry scheduled to take place in three days, Elly refuses to spend one more night in the guest bedroom.

Knowing Jerry will do nothing to address their issues until after she's been cleared by their physician, Elly decides to confront the matter the only way she knows how.  Head on. Jerry gives Elly a chance to avoid the inevitable by ordering her to pick up her board one last time, but she stubbornly refuses to comply, so he makes good on his promise. When she finally gives in, Jerry wants to make sure she understands he's serious about her health, and that further disobedience will only get her in worse trouble. So, after he finishes administering her spanking, he tells her she deliberately sought to make him angry and she succeeded, so without further ado he grabs her arm and orders her to follow him to the corner where he places both hands on her head and orders her nose to the wall. 

“Go ahead and blow,” he ordered softly. “Then take a few deep breaths.”
She wiped her eyes and blew her nose, but her breathing came in shuddering gasps of distress. His palms rested at her waist.
“Easy, Elly. This is meant to be punishment, not torture. Now take some deep breaths, sweetie, and calm down.”
She gasped for breath, but it wasn’t until his hand began rubbing her back with gentle, reassuring strokes, that she was able to slow her crying at all. Normally, she experienced a sense of relief after one of Jerry’s spankings, but this time their unresolved issues made her feel worse. All the same, his comforting eased her troubled spirit despite the guilt she still harbored for pushing him so hard.


Though Elly knows her disobedience will push Jerry into taking action, she hopes the spanking she's about to receive will help clear some of the very uncomfortable tension developing between them and allow them to begin repairing their broken relationship.

M/F Domestic Discipline in Colorado.


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.

Past Interference is available at the following locations.

Frisky Friday - 3/25/16 - Lessons in Love - Rob insists Pam take his hand #SpankingRomance #DD

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

Reading this material at Work could get you spanked.

Welcome to Frisky Friday.  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 sixth novel, Lessons in Love, published by Blushing Books.

This excerpt occurs after Mr. Peterson has taken Pam shopping for a new wardrobe at a an exclusive place where she suffered a mini breakdown. Knowing she'd have questions and wanting her to feel comfortable talking, he takes her to dinner at his private club. Pam is amazed to find a footman greet them, and stupefied by the ultra-exclusive manliness of the place, but she suffers a wave of uneasiness when she observes most of the private dining areas are equipped with beds.

Wondering what sort of place her boss has taken her to, she's relieved to note that the room they're escorted to looks like a private parlor with a small table set for two. However, there's an odd piece of the furniture in the corner made of wood and leather that seems terribly out of place with all the china, crystal and velvet. However, when she admits she's no longer hungry and suggests it might be best if she just went home, he puts a quick end to the nonsense by extending his hand with the request she place her fingers on his palm.

Pam squinted to keep her watering eyes from overflowing but did as he asked.
"Thank you," he murmured, rising as he assisted her to her feet. Then he drew her into his arms. "Relax and breathe, kitten. You're safe."
The words were pure nonsense, since the last person in the world she could be safe with at this moment was Robert Peterson. But the endearment and reassurance brought a sob to her throat.
"I'm sorry—"
"No apologies. Just release all that emotion churning inside you. I've got you, and I won't let you go."
"I feel like such a fool."
"Why?" His hand roamed her back, rubbing and soothing.
"You haven't done anything evil to me, and yet I'm terrified when you gaze at me that way."
"What way?"
"Steely-eyed and implacable. Like, no matter what I say or do, you intend to carry out whatever plan you’re considering."
"If I look that way, I would suggest you obey me, and quickly.

Though Rob recognizes Pam's uneasiness, he's not about to let her leave until she tells him what has her most concerned.

M/F, DD on the executive floor.
