Hanna's Awakening is here!

Hanna's Awakening released a few days ago with Stormy Night Publications and I'm so excited by how well it's doing on Amazon already. When I woke up this morning, it was playing just-the-tip with the Amazon top 100 erotica list, hanging out at #99. Yay!

Hanna's Awakening is my longest book yet and came in around 31,000 words. I usually write short stories and shorter novellas around the 20K mark, so it was exciting to write something this long. It was also exciting to write my first age play romance. Shana's Guardian has a little bit of age play in it, but I consider Hanna's Awakening to be my first real age play story because the age play elements are more obvious and I actually pushed my own limits as I was telling the story. It takes a lot to make me feel naughty, and I felt very naughty while writing this book.

Hanna's Awakening blurb:

Hanna longs for a life outside her tightknit Amish community, and as her nineteenth birthday approaches she finally works up the courage to leave her home for good. Her first taste of the outside world comes courtesy of an English neighbor, Ben Foster, who gives her a job and a place to stay. He also gives her butterflies in her stomach and some very improper thoughts that she doesn’t quite understand.

The moment Hanna shows up at his cabin and shyly asks for help, Ben finds that ignoring her sweet feminine presence isn’t possible when she’s suddenly wearing form-fitting clothing and sleeping under his roof. In spite of his growing passions Ben does his best to make Hanna feel welcome in his home. After she disobeys him during a trip to town, however, she does something unexpected—she comes to him and pleads to be punished. The act of chastising her changes the nature of their relationship, and when Ben asks Hanna to think of him as her daddy things take a passionate turn.

Hanna blossoms under Ben’s attentions. She’s never experienced such love and care, and she softens inside every time he calls her his baby girl. Though it leaves her blushing bright red with shame, being undressed and bathed sets Hanna on fire in a way she has never felt before. Her daddy can also be firm when it is needed, and Hanna soon learns that naughty girls get their bare bottoms soundly spanked.

Even as she tries to enjoy every second with him, Hanna knows that her future with Ben is uncertain. They’re both running away from their past, and Hanna has always planned to run far, far away. Are their paths only meant to cross for a short time, or will they discover a new road to walk together?

Publisher’s Note: Hanna’s Awakening is an erotic novel that includes spankings, anal play, graphic sexual scenes, age play, elements of medical play, and more. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.
