A quick hello...and an article in Wellred Weekly


I've been absent from social media lately. I miss everyone and hope to get back to 'normal' soon. I'm trying to finish editing one book, finish writing another, and on and on and on. Oh, and spring break starts on Thursday and my schedule is packed full of visits with family and friends. This is a good thing for Susan, but not for Sue!

Now...onto the second reason for this post! I have an article titled "Spanking Fiction Across Genres" in the latest edition of Wellred Weekly. I talk about my reading habits, how I first found spanking fiction on the Internet, and more...


I'll never forget that first spanking story I found on the Internet. It was summertime and I was 13. I'd finally convinced my parents that we needed the Internet because it would help me with my school work. Ha! Anyway, I found More Than A Man by Carolyn Faulkner and printed it out in secret. I remember I tried to staple the pages together and the darn stapler broke, so I used a hole puncher and a three ring binder to put it together. I must've read it a hundred times that summer. I hid it under my mattress and read it under the covers with a flashlight at night. I did the same thing with a few other stories I found, but that first book is seared into my memory permanently. I also remember spending my allowance money on three ring binders every time we drove into town. I had a very meticulous organization system in place for my treasured spanking stories. The only hardship was a lumpy mattress.... Read the full article on Wellred Weekly.

Saturday Spankings: New to his world

Welcome to Saturday Spankings!



This week I'm sharing more from Rules of Command. As I mentioned last week, Rules of Command is Rules of War entirely from John's POV. The following excerpt is from the first time he spanks her:


He sank down on the bed, pulling her over his lap. He pressed a hand to the small of her back and cupped her bottom with his other hand. She gasped when he tugged down her pajama bottoms and underwear, revealing her bare ass to his gaze. Smalls sobs drifted up as her shoulders heaved. John paused, taken aback by her crying when he had not let one smack fall yet. He murmured soothing words as he rubbed her backside for a minute. Holding her over his lap filled him with a great sense of responsibility. She was new to his world, and it was his duty to protect and guide her.



The first book in the series, Rules of War, can be found on Amazon US, Amazon UK, Amazon CA, Barnes and Noble, All Romance, and Lazy Day Publishing

Saturday Spankings: A peek inside John's head


Welcome to another week of Saturday Spankings!

 
Today I'm sharing a snippet from Rules of Command. This is the companion book to Rules of War. It's basically the same story, but told completely from John's POV. If you've read Rules of War, you know the story is only told from Emma's POV, so John remained much of a mystery at times. Here's a peek inside his head:


A lesson needed to be taught. It was his duty as her husband to deliver that lesson. Perhaps one day her heart would soften to the idea of being disciplined, of accepting his authority. He was not a tyrant. He would never, ever abuse her. Trust would take time, and this first spanking would serve to foster trust. He would be firm with her, but he would also be loving. A good husband always punished with love.


I'm working super duper hard to finish up Rules of Command right now, and it's scheduled for a June release with Lazy Day Publishing.

The first book in the series, Rules of War, can be found on Amazon US, Amazon UK, Amazon CA, Barnes and Noble, All Romance, and Lazy Day Publishing.

Saturday Spankings: "I ought to give you a good spanking for that."


Another Saturday...another Saturday Spankings blog hop!



Today I'm sharing eight sentences from my WIP, Hanna's Awakening. At least I think that'll be the title. Anyway, you might have seen me talking about a kinky Amish story on Facebook and Twitter in recent weeks. This is the story!

Here's the set up for this scene: Ben is a survivalist recluse and most of the townspeople think he's strange, especially since he didn't grow up in the area and no one really knows who he is. He doesn't want anyone to know he's harboring a young woman (Hanna) who just left the Amish community because he doesn't want anyone poking around in their business. He also worries someone might try to take advantage of Hanna, so he insists she call him Daddy when they make a trip to town. Yes, this story is all kinds of kinky.


Though her face reddened and her eyes still blazed, Hanna nodded and said a quick apology to her friends before taking a step toward Ben. Without thinking, he gripped her elbow and guided her out of Tony’s Pizza, not releasing her until they reached the Jeep.

“Young lady, I ought to give you a good spanking for that. I told you in town you needed to do as I say and call me Daddy. I warned you about people trying to take advantage of you. Did you not listen to a word I said? What were you thinking, arguing with me and calling me Mr. Foster in front of the whole restaurant?” He leaned down to scold her, hands braced against the car door on either side of her body, pinning her in place without actually touching her.



Hmm...I wonder what happens when they get home? :)

Book Spotlight: Marked by the Alpha by Adaline Raine


Today I'm spotlighting Marked by the Alpha by Adaline Raine, a paranormal spanking romance novel. There's a steamy excerpt included that you won't want to miss!


Blurb:

Dani had always been a lone wolf and she had no desire to join a pack, but that didn’t matter to a true alpha wolf like Mason Daniels. When he finds out that human hunters have been threatening Dani, he puts his mark on her.

Unfortunately, the hunters are foolish enough to disregard his mark, and Dani is captured. After Mason and his pack rescue her from certain death, Dani is given no choice about joining Mason’s pack for her own protection. She soon learns that Mason is fully prepared to spank her bare bottom as often as is necessary to teach her to respect and obey him.

With more hunters closing in and the pack under threat, Mason begins to realize that he must claim Dani as his mate for life—whether she likes it or not—before his need for her drives him mad. At the same time, she is forced to learn her role in the pack and come to terms with her instinctual need to submit to Mason as her alpha and her mate.

Publisher’s Note: Marked by the Alpha is an erotic novel that includes non-consensual spankings, anal play, graphic sexual scenes, and more. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.


Excerpt:

“If you growl at me again I will show you right now just how this is going to play out.” Mason’s words came out cool and collected and it just poked at Dani more.

“I am not yours to command,” Dani said fiercely, feeling more off-balance than ever before. One minute she was ready to impress him and please him, and in the next she was ready to force him to claim her in every sense of the word. She took a step towards him.

Mason grabbed her hair and pulled her the rest of the way. She stumbled and wound up on her knees. “You may be dominant, but not with me,” he warned her. He let go of her hair and she glared up at him. “You are going to respect me, Dani, no matter how long it takes,” Mason said, and then reached down, pulled her up into his arms, and set her on the edge of the table. “You should be warned that you will not like how alpha males teach their females respect.”

Dani slid off the table and sat back in her seat while she glared daggers at him. “If it involves bowing down and letting you walk all over me, then you and your pack can go and—”

Mason grabbed her chin. “I tried being reasonable, but now I am going to teach you to respect me.”

“You get your hands off me!” Dani growled. She was done being rational. She wanted Mason Daniels out of her house and out of her business!

Mason shook his head. “I warned you about that,” he said firmly, then picked her up and threw her over his shoulder before she could react.

“Mason Daniels you put me down or so help me—”

SMACK!

Dani jumped. He had smacked her ass! What the hell? She was too shocked to comprehend what he had just done, let alone what he might mean to do next. While she was trying to remember what he had said earlier in the store about respect, he carried her across the room, then set her on her feet in front of him and sat down upon her couch, all the while keeping a tight hold around her waist. Dani tried to escape from his grasp, but she was suddenly yanked over his lap and then pinned by one of his legs. She bucked but had nowhere to go. “I will never forgive you for this,” she spat between her teeth as he grabbed her arm and held it behind her back.

“I am not going to stop until you have learned a good lesson,” Mason whispered as he rested his other hand on Dani’s back.

The nerve of him! Dani had never been in this position before in her life! She bucked up against his palm. “My pain tolerance is epic, Mr. Daniels.”

“I’m not going to spank you because I want you to hurt you, I’m going to spank you because you need it,” Mason said, then lifted her skirt and lowered her panties. He began to smack one cheek and then the other, over and over, harder and harder, turning her bare bottom quickly from pale to pink to bright red.

Dani bit her lip. Though her tolerance was indeed high she was growing more nervous about being held in such a manner. She had never been spanked as a child. Hell, she had been on her own since age ten. When she heard him undo his belt she fought anew to get free, and she really began to squirm and struggle when his belt began to sting her upper thighs.

“You let me go!” she yelled in pain and fury.

Mason continued to rain the belt down on both of her exposed cheeks. “Are you going to start treating me with some respect?” he asked calmly.

Dani kept squirming as the spanking continued. “I hate you!” she finally yelled out as the tears began to flow. True to his word it did not feel like he was trying to bruise her but the intense sting and the humiliation were ebbing away at the wall that she had so firmly kept in place.

Mason finally tossed the belt aside. “Tell me, Dani, why have you been behaving so rudely toward me?”

Dani continued to cry but said nothing. How could she possibly tell him that part of her was secretly hoping that he was here to claim her, and that another part of her hated him for making her think that way.

Mason let out a sigh and began to spank with his hand. “I want the answer. There has to be some reason that you have been so disrespectful to me.” After several moments Dani heard him pick the belt up again.

“Is this what men like you do to your females?” Dani spat the words. Her mood had turned sour and she was deeply confused at the rush of emotions running through her.

Without answering, Mason began to smack with the belt again. The truth was that she did not want him to let go of her… ever… and that thought deeply frightened her. She had never relied on anyone before and the idea that she should trust a complete stranger with her life was completely unsettling. Soon the speed of the strokes increased until even Dani could no longer keep quiet, pain tolerance be damned. “Please! Mason! Please!” she cried out. “Please, stop!”

He didn’t stop immediately, but at last he set the belt aside again. She felt him adjust her clothes and then he lifted her up and turned her around so that she was pressed against his chest. “Tell me now, what is the problem that you have with me?” he asked, gently this time.

Dani wiped at her eyes. He was holding her against him and she was growing more confused. How could he spank her like that and now sit here with such a gentle hand? “I have never reacted to anyone the way that I react to you,” she finally answered.

“Have you never been around an alpha before?” He wiped her tears with the tip of his fingers and Dani fought to keep from pulling away.

“I thought so, but perhaps not,” Dani answered with a shrug. She kept her head down.

“You will learn to respect me, Dani, and I will keep you safe no matter what.”

Dani looked up at him. She opened her mouth to protest, but then his mouth was suddenly on hers.

Her wolf side growled in deep contentment as he began to lick along her neck and nip at all the right places. She pulled the shirt from his pants and began to run her hands over his stomach and chest. He was warm and muscled and he felt wonderful beneath her hands. She decided she wanted more and began to lick the path that her hands had followed. Soon she was nibbling and sucking and then full-on biting.

He pulled her skirt up out of the way and began to nibble along her thighs. His tongue was an odd mix of wet and fiery as it began to delve into her most private places. She stopped biting then as she was surrounded by heat. She drew great scratches down his back, which healed almost as quickly. Dani bucked and writhed and she called out his name as he brought her to climax.

How to Introduce Erotic Spanking


I'm turning my blog over to my friends at Adam & Eve today for a special guest post on one of my favorite topics...erotic spankings!



Reading erotic novels can inspire you to change a few things in bed. Maybe they've introduced you to dirty talk, role playing, new positions or possibly even spanking. However, reading about spanking and getting turned on by it can be very different from actually experiencing it. If you've been reading an erotic BDSM novel recently and have found that your spanking interests have piqued, you've come to the right spot. Check out this guide on how to introduce spanking into your relationship.

The first step to introducing anything new in bed is always communication. I don't ever recommend just taking the plunge and spanking your partner out of nowhere--that usually doesn't end well. If it's the other way around and you want to be spanked, you're not likely to get it unless you ask. So you're going to have to open your mouth and talk to your partner about it. They might be reticent at first, especially if your partner is a man. I have found that some past partners of mine were unable to do so due to learning that you "never hit a woman" at a young age. Just talk them through it, explain why you're into it and even read them an excerpt from one of your favorite spanking books to really drive the point home.

It's important to note that this is something you should try with someone you trust. You never want to incorporate pain or violence into sex with someone you don't trust or can't be honest with. In fact, you should set up a safe word once you've gotten them on board with the spanking. This will allow the two of you to have fun, but know when limits have been reached.

So how do you spank? It's not as straight forward as you may think!

When you start out, be sure to just involve spanking. Don't mix it with sex or oral sex. Let the recipient, whether that be you or your partner, become accustomed to the pain, to learn how it feels and how they are going to react. You don't want to move on until the spanker has mastered the move and the spankee has mastered the pain.

Start out by fooling around with your partner. It's important that the spankee is aroused. This will allow all of the blood to flow to the top of the skin and will make the body more receptive to erotic pain. Do not attempt any spanking until the spankee feels adequately aroused. Once turned on, have the spankee assume a position that is comfortable for them--this could be on all fours, bending over, strewn across the spanker's lap, or even bent over a chair.

Then have the spanker position themselves so they have full range of motion and enough space to accurately spank the spankees backside. The spanker will want to start by using their hands as they are the best gauge for force and pain.

First have the spanker warm their hands up by rubbing them together. Then they will have to select their dominate hand, this will be the one they use to spank. The spanker should then slightly cup their hand. Cupping their hand will allow them to make better contact and produce a wonderful smacking sound. Then they will want to aim for the meatiest section of one butt cheek--never try to slap both cheeks at once. As the spank comes down, the spanker will want to make a slight upward stroke vs a downward one. Once the spank has been laid out, the spanker should follow up with a quick caress or massage of the area that was spanked. This will help calm the skin down and prepare it for the next spank. At this point its important for the spankee to show through body language or through words if this was too much, not enough or the perfect amount. From there the two of you can play with varying amounts of pain.

Once you feel like you've mastered the hand and the pain, you can move on to spanking aids like paddles, whips, canes or rulers. You can usually find some great options at adult novelty stores or you can use these coupon codes for Adam & Eve.

Finally, spanking should be something that is fun and erotic for the two of you. Do not continue if you don't feel comfortable or don't enjoy it.

Saturday Spankings: Her first time over his knee

Welcome to Saturday Spankings!



This week I'm sharing a snippet from my most recent release, Surrender.


A heady sense of power coursed through Merokk as he held Betsy firmly over his lap. He wanted her to fear him, but only a little. A healthy dose of fear, nothing over the top. Too much fear would only breed hatred in her heart. He hoped the action he was about to take would ease some of her concerns. The worst punishment she could expect from him was a sound strapping—and only when it was truly deserved.

A day ago he’d been reluctant to meet his bride-to-be, but now he was seriously considering having his way with her a little early. They were practically strangers, but he’d felt a spark ignite between them the moment their eyes locked in the great room inside the White House. He swallowed hard and his jaw tensed as his eyes swept over the curves of her bottom.


Surrender blurb:

Love with the enemy can be the ultimate surrender…

Fiona Lockhart struggles to survive after Earth is conquered by powerful aliens. She knows it's only a matter of time before her schizophrenic mother acts out at the wrong time and place and brings down the wrath of their captors. So when turncoats offer Fiona a way to keep her mother safe, she can't refuse—even though it means marrying a Kall warrior and posing as the First Daughter, Betsy Carson.

Kall warrior Merokk has mixed feelings about marrying a human woman, but it's his duty and he can't refuse. He enjoys taming the headstrong Betsy, and a good spanking now and then makes the passion burn. The sex is sizzling, and as the months pass, Merokk discovers the feelings for his little wife run deep. But when he learns of her deceit after the real Betsy Carson surfaces, Merokk's new world shatters. Can he learn to forgive Fiona, or will he spend the rest of their lives punishing her for a crime she never wanted to commit?
