Guest Post - 10/27/17 - Claimed by the Captain by Gracie Malling #Medieval #Witchcraft #Romance

Gracie Malling has dropped by to share a snippet from her medieval paranormal romance Claimed by the Captain. I asked her what writing advice she might have to share with other writers, and she gave the answer that rings most true with me as well. "The best writing advice I’ve ever seen is ‘you can’t edit a blank page’. It’s so simple but so true. My advice to anyone starting out would be to give their inner critic a holiday and just write and write everything that’s in their head – you can turn it into something that makes sense afterwards."

Which means give yourself permission to write a lousy first draft, but write something.


“No more spells, no more gathering herbs and flowers, no more night-time adventures in the woods.”
Ellen gasped. How did he—?
“Oh, yes, I know what you’ve been doing,” said the master and that look of amused affection was back on his face. “Do you think me ignorant of anything that goes on in my property?”
At his words, Ellen blushed bright red. Her mind flew to the memory of her many writhings and whimperings on the straw mattress at night—surely he didn’t know about that?
Mortified, she pushed the memory out of her mind at once.
“But I could help people—the fever…”
No, Ellen,” said the master and the softness was gone. “I forbid it, is that clear?”
“But I know just the charm and—”
“I am in earnest, Ellen. You are forbidden from going anywhere near the village until that witch finder has gone.”
Ellen stood up and clasped her hands together. Did he not understand how difficult it was for her to just stand by and watch while people suffered? To turn them away when they came to her begging for help?
The master stood up too, took Ellen gently but firmly by the arm and turned her to face him. “This is not a game,” he said, leaning down so that his face was level with hers. “If you are accused of witchcraft, you could be tortured. Hanged. Burned alive. I do not forbid you for my own amusement; I forbid you to keep you safe. And if you defy me, Ellen,” here his voice dropped to a deeper pitch and the intensity of his gaze was such that Ellen had to look away, “then the punishment will be severe. Do you understand me?”


When Captain Thomas Edwards returns home after twenty years at sea to take ownership of the White Hart Inn following the death of his father, he has not even reached the edge of the village before he comes across a miscreant stealing apples from a local farmer’s orchard. Upon discovering that the thief is a young woman named Ellen who has been employed in his father’s inn for years, he considers it his responsibility to bare her bottom and spank her soundly.
In addition to working as a servant at the White Hart, Ellen has become known for her skill as an herbalist, and the last thing she needs is a stern sea captain getting in the way of her curing the ailments of her fellow villagers with a potion or tonic when the need arises. But despite her shock at being punished in such a shameful manner for nothing more than stealing a few apples, to Ellen’s surprise the painful chastisement leaves her aching for Thomas to take her in his arms and make her his.
Despite his willingness to spank her bare bottom whenever he feels it necessary, Ellen finds herself falling deeper in love with Thomas with every passing day. But when plague strikes the village and a witch finder is summoned, Thomas forbids Ellen from using her herbs to aid her friends and neighbors. As the situation grows more desperate, will she disobey him and put her skills to use even if it means risking her life, and can he keep her safe if she does?

Saturday Spankings - 10/21/17 - Arrested by Love - Lying carries penalties #SatSpanks

He caught her speeding in a school zone and decided she needed to learn even civil disobedience could have very painful consequences.

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 necessary.

My submission for this week is from my first spanking novel, Arrested by Love, published by Blushing Books.

  In Chapter Four, Kyle Sinclair, a traffic patrol officer, has just proposed to the girl he's secretly loved, but avoided for years. He knows Tiffany Morgan has been infatuated with him since she was a little girl, but she came from a much higher social strata than his public school/middle class upbringing associated with. However, what the heart wants isn't always in line with what society deems appropriate.

Having finally overcome his doubts, Kyle gets down on one knee and presents Tiffany with a ring only to have her dissolve into tears before him. Confused, he starts to question her only to discover she'd lied for the past month about staying within the budget he'd set for her. Relieved her dismay wasn't the result of a more serious issue, but angry she'd thought lying to him was a more acceptable course than admitting failure, he gives her a choice. She can either accompany him quietly without fuss or whining, or they can stop seeing each other for a year.

Tiffany can't believe he'd stop seeing her simply because she'd overspent her budget, but Kyle promptly informs her he's not punishing her for overspending, but for lying and refusing to accept the consequences of her deceit. So, after driving to a secluded spot, he orders her to choose and prepare an appropriate branch for him to use as a switch.

            "Remove your skirt and underwear now, please," he ordered taking a seat on the log.
            She gazed at him for a moment then handed him the switch she'd made. He tested it a couple of times while she undressed. Even though he'd decided against using it, he wasn't above scaring her a little before he discarded it. She stood before him in her blouse and shoes, her small frame trembling slightly. Next, he noticed a small patch of red hair peeking out from beneath her shirt and felt a surge of lust, which merely served to increase his anger. He had hoped to finally make love to her this evening, but it looked like that would be off the agenda tonight as well.
            Setting the switch on the ground, he crooked an index finger at her. She winced, but walked over to stand beside him until her knees touched his with barely a moment's hesitation. He patted his lap. "You should know the drill by now, Tiffany. Take your position, please."
            She let out a tiny gasp, and he knew she was afraid, but she also knew better than to try to dissuade him. Looked like his threat of year's separation had had its intended effect.


Kyle doesn't like hurting Tiffany, though he knows he has to take her in hand if he's to make any progress in curbing her impulsive behavior. As his wife, she won't have the financial freedom to spend money in the way she's used to doing. He doesn't expect her to be perfect, and fully accepts she will overspend from time to time, but he needs her to understand that it's much better for her to own up to her mistakes than try to hide them beneath lies.

#MFRWHooks - 10/18/17 - A Simple Misunderstanding - Jerry explains Domestic Discipline #CorbinsBend #Romance

It's Book Hooks Wednesday!  Yay!  And I'm sharing another excerpt from my new spanking romance in the Corbin's Bend series, A Simple Misunderstanding.  It's sequel, Past Interference is included both in the Love in the Rockies anthology and as a single title release.

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 Six,  Elly Benson is still in the hospital after her husband attacked her.  Jerry Douglas, who has secretly fallen in love in with Elly, remains at her side in the hospital while doctors assess her condition.

Not long after she was settled in her new room, Dr. Pendergast, the surgeon who’d operated on her spleen, came in to go over the results of her CT scan. Jerry didn’t want to leave, but Elly had a right to discuss her care with her doctor without a stranger listening in, even when he was the stranger in question. However, when he rose to depart, she said, “Don’t go.”
Jerry frowned, but resumed his seat.
Pendergast informed Elly her scans looked good. No sign of bleeding in either her abdomen or her head. Then he paused. “Now I need to ask you about the bruising we noticed on your wrists and buttocks.” He turned to Jerry, who gave a nod to indicate he understood which bruises the doctor meant.
“Legally, I must ask. Did your husband cause your injuries?”
Elly swallowed and glanced at Jerry. “Would you explain Corbin’s Bend to him?”
Jerry wanted to object, since he suspected the activities of Corbin’s Bend had little to do with the punishment Arthur had inflicted on his wife, but Elly gave him such a plaintive look, he relented.
Careful to use non-judgmental words, he explained how Corbin’s Bend was a community that catered to individuals who had an interest in domestic discipline. When Pendergast blinked, Jerry added, “Couples who practice DD often employ corporal punishment, which can include spanking, caning and whipping, but it is not considered abuse.”
“What is it, if not abuse?” the doctor asked, clearly unfamiliar with the concept.
“A way to preserve marital harmony through spousal discipline. I can send you some literature if you like, but most partners in DD do not resort to the levels of severity Mrs. Benson experienced.”


Jerry understands why Elly doesn't want to remain alone while her surgeon questions her, but he privately hopes the doctor will finally get Elly to admit her husband mistreats her.

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.

#WIPitUP - 10/18/17 - Acting Lessons - Peter works on the spanking scene with Kate #KissMeKate #SpankingRomance

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 want to share a snippet from my 5th spanking book, Acting Lessons, loosely based on the story of Kiss Me Kate. It's been. a while since I shared from this book (6/15/16). So, if you want to know what happened right before this scene, you can read it HERE.

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 two-thirds into the book, Peter Thorton is directing his wife and some college students in a production of Kiss Me Kate and they've reached the famous spanking scene near the end of the musical. Though Peter spanks Kate in real life, she's done everything she can to get him to cut this scene, because spankings are intense, intimate and extremely personal for her and she doesn't want one on-stage. Peter, however, assures her the stage spanking will be nothing like the real ones he gives her, and the scene is essential to the story, so it can't be cut. Kate reluctantly agrees to try despite her severe misgivings, so Peter orders the actors to take their places. 

If you're unfamiliar with the musical, Kiss Me Kate is a play within a play about a recently divorced couple attempting to put on a production of Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew. In this scene, Tom is filling in for Peter as Lilli's husband actor/director Fred Graham who is also acting the role of Petruchio. Kate plays the actress Lilli Vanessi who is acting the role of Katharine. So, Peter, who is currently directing the scene, refers to the actors by their Shakespearean characters' names as well as their Kiss Me Kate characters' names in addition to their "real" names. Baptista is the name Shakespeare gave Katharine's father. Confused? Hopefully the scene below in Peter's POV will help make it clear. 

            "Okay, let's start from the top. Baptista, your line."
            On this reading Tom gave a trace more swagger to his words, so Peter commended him. However, the student's expression of uncertainty when Kate crossed over to throw the "bouquet" at his head was almost comical. Peter waved his arms to stop the scene and turned to his assistant. "Karen, make a note, we need something more substantial for a bouquet than a rolled up newspaper. Speak to props, will you?" When Karen nodded and scribbled a message for herself, Peter rolled the paper into a cone, so the object looked more like a bouquet, then artfully folded it back to hold his makeshift flower arrangement in place before he tossed the paper funnel back to Kate.
            "Go ahead; throw your flowers at me, Lilli." She did and he caught it in one hand, pleased the "prop" held together. "That's what I want you to do, Tom." Peter examined his creation with a frown. "This bouquet is going to wilt quickly, I'm afraid, but we'll toss the thing about until it does." He lobbed the paper back to Kate.
            "Okay, you two, play catch." Kate threw the paper again and Tom fumbled. "You don't participate in a lot of sports, do you, Tom?"
            "No, sir."
            "Didn't think so. Try again."

Kate may be a professional, but there are some things that are just too personal to share with an audience. However, she also feels sorry for Tom. He's just a student, and Peter can be a tough director.
M/F, DD and a staged production of Kiss Me, Kate.

Guest Blogger - 10-17-17 - A Strict Gentleman by Jaye Peaches #Victorian #EroticRomance #TimeTravel

“You are bound by the rules of this century, not yours. I shall hold you accountable in whatever way I wish.”


Reaching round, he hitched up her skirts, fighting the petticoats until he had hold of her drawers. With a yank, he brought them down past her arse. Spreading his fingers, he clutched at a cheek, and squeezed the warm lobe until it felt like it might melt in his palm.
She gasped, teetering on her tiptoes as he kneaded her naked buttock. The swell of desire extended to the end of his cock, filling it with hot blood and pushing it up. She rocked her hipbone against it, and it was his turn to gasp.
“Why, you vixen,” he charged her.
She giggled.
He still held the duster. “You shall be punished. I’m going to whip you with this,” he murmured, nibbling on her earlobe.
“No!” she squawked. “I’ve not done a thing wrong. It will hurt,” she added indignantly.
“Ha, I decide, do I not? And it won’t hurt, not in the way you think it will.” He pointed at the table. “Bend over and keep your skirts up.”
“Sir, this is most inappropriate. Someone might come—”
“Who? I keep this house quiet of servants for a reason. Now, bend!”
She fumbled with her petticoats and pouted. She frowned so sweetly, it hardened his cock to see her little displays of defiance knowing shortly she would be begging for relief and pleasure.
She folded over the end of the dining table with aplomb, dropping her drawers at the same time. As for the skirts, she hugged them under her hips, protecting her from the rigid edge of the oak.
He lifted the duster—a rod to which the feathers of a goose had been attached—and swept it across her bare arse. She squealed and her face screwed up tight.
“It hurts, it hurts,” she wailed.
However, rather than lift it off, he spread the feathers across her rump and dragged them down the back of her thighs, then reversing direction, up between her legs.
“Ooo!” She knocked her knees together and trapped the duster as it glided up her slit and furrow. The feathers became wet with her nectar.
“Again?” he asked, already knowing the answer.
“Yes, please,” she quipped.


Twenty-three-year-old Kelly Regan didn’t expect much excitement when she took a job as a curator at a historic estate, but upon encountering a beautiful, mysteriously powerful mirror she suddenly finds herself transported back to the Victorian era.
Kelly is intrigued by the estate’s owner, the handsome bachelor Sir Henry Yarlswood, and in order to learn more about life in his household she impersonates another woman and obtains a position as his maid. But Henry is not a man who tolerates dishonestly from his staff, and after her deception is discovered Kelly’s bottom is bared for a painful, embarrassing spanking.
The stern punishment only increases Kelly’s desire to know more about her handsome employer, but after she is caught snooping through his personal effects she soon finds herself stripped naked for an even more shameful chastisement. Despite her sore bottom, however, she is deeply aroused by Henry’s firm-handed dominance, and when he claims her properly his masterful lovemaking leaves her spent and satisfied. But will their blossoming romance be enough to keep her by his side, even if it means leaving her old life behind forever?
