Coming to Terms: Confession Time by Sue Lyndon


For the last several Wednesdays, I've been showcasing the individual stories in the Coming to Terms domestic discipline anthology. This week is the last week of the spotlights, and I guess that means I have to spotlight my own story. I hope no one minds that I've picked a very naughty excerpt for today:)


"Confession Time" blurb: 



A stay-cation at their lakeside home seems like the perfect way to start summer for Lucy and James - until an unexpected houseguest arrives, spoiling their plans to explore maintenance spanking and other aspects of their budding domestic discipline relationship. Determined to make the most of summer with his wife, James surprises Lucy with a last minute cabin retreat high in the Blue Ridge Mountains. But when Lucy's sister finds out about their DD relationship, she overreacts and assumes the worst of James. Lucy's attempt to smooth the situation over blows up in her face when James discovers her missing. Will hurt feelings, embarrassing confessions, and family drama ruin their summer? Or will James and Lucy find their way through the darkness and back to one another's arms?


excerpt:


“I panicked when I woke up to find you missing, Lucy. I don’t ever want to feel that kind of fear again. The spanking you have coming will be a memorable one. I want you to go in the bedroom, take your clothes off, and wait in the corner. I’ll be in shortly to punish you.”


“All right,” she whispered hoarsely.

His expression was warmer by the time he stepped back. The sternness was still there, but the glow of love radiated from him in waves. Despite his obvious anger that showed in the clenching of his jaw and rigid posture, she felt no fear as her feet carried her to the bedroom. In the back of her mind, she realized the pain she was about to experience at his hand would be greater than any other punishment before, but she did not focus on the pain. Instead, she focused on obeying his command to undress and take up residence in a corner. Acceptance and impatience to be over his lap caused her thoughts to mute, and she was not even sure how much time had passed by the time she heard his footsteps approaching.

“Turn around.”

As she complied, a gasp left her when she noticed the two objects in his hands. A bottle of lube and a sinister looking butt plug. “James?” Her gaze focused on the slim black rubbery shaft, and she could not tear her eyes away. He had warned her about clenching her bottom again and again. She had not expected him to seriously follow through with his threats to train her to keep her bottom relaxed during a punishment though.

“I’m going to give you a good, long spanking, Lucy, and I want you to feel the intensity of every smack I give you. You’ll find tightening up your bottom most difficult when it’s filled up with a plug.”

“Please,” she begged. “I don’t think I could bear it.”

“You’ve taken my fingers and my cock before. You’ll do fine. Go bend over the bed and pull your cheeks apart.”

Shocked, Lucy did not move for several seconds. He waited, staring her down as he twirled the dreaded plug in his hand, as if it were nothing more than a common household item. Blood rushed to her face as she approached the bed, the sunlight streaming through the partially opened blinds heightening her nudity.



“Enough stalling,” he said. “Bend over and hold your ass cheeks apart, Lucy. Show me what a good girl you can be.”

His encouraging words rang through her, giving her the courage to do as he asked, as embarrassing as it was to open her body up to his gaze. Her chest and face pressed down on the covers, and she reached back, drawing her bottom apart.

Hi, I'm Sue, and I write spanking books


If you're friends with me on Facebook or follow me on Twitter, you might have noticed I changed my profile pic recently. Yep, to a real picture of me. I needed to change my profile pic anyway, because I'd noticed other authors using the same exact image on Twitter and Facebook. Having the same profile pic as other writers isn't good for your branding as an author, or so they say.

I'd been wanting to use my real picture for a while, but I was holding back because I wasn't completely out of the smutty writer closet. While many people in my life already knew about my naughty writings, there were some people who hadn't a clue. I worried. I kept thinking "what if so-and-so finds out what I write?"

So I decided to test the waters. I told some people who didn't know, just to see how they'd react. Since my youngest child starts kindergarten in a month, some of my friends and acquaintances were assuming I'd go back to work soon, and I've been fielding this question for months now. Whenever someone asked, "so where will you be working next year?" or "you're not just going to stay at home, are you?", I started telling the truth. I even told them my pen name.

Guess what? No one gave me any judgmental looks. Not even when I used the words "spanking romance" and "bdsm." Quite the opposite in fact. People were curious, and many admitted to enjoying erotic stories, even stories with spanking. One of my friends even confessed to me that she spanks her husband. I'm sure I'll run into someone one day who gives me the "oh my god, you're a pervert!" look, but it's okay. I feel ready for it.

My middle child is very much into taking pictures, and when she overheard me talking about needing an author photo, she insisted that she be the one to take it. She followed me around for days, snapping my picture, yelling at me to hold still and say cheese. In exchange for a good author pic, I owed her two trips to Dairy Queen. This isn't my new profile pic, but it is my favorite picture she took because it pretty much sums up my summer. 

I guess what I learned from the whole coming out process is that there are more open minded people in my life than I'd previously thought. This makes me happy.

Saturday Spankings: Amelia's wardrobe malfunction


Welcome to Saturday Spankings....the naughtiest blog hop around!


Today I'm sharing an excerpt from my soon-to-be-released MFM fantasy novella, Claiming Their Maiden. This book was originally titled Days and Nights, and I shared a few snippets from it during previous Saturday Spankings. In the following scene, Amelia is having a heated exchange with Gavin, one of her "mates":


“Let me go!” She twisted in his grasp, her fright escalating by the second.

“Let you go? I don’t think so,” he said. “I’m enjoying the view too much.”

She stilled in his strong arms and glanced down. Shame heated her face. Her cleavage had popped out of the low-cut nightdress, and her nipples were on display to Gavin. Even worse, she was winded, and her large bare breasts heaved in time with her quick breaths. Mortified, she tried to cover herself, but Gavin pulled her arms behind her, preventing her from reclaiming her modesty.


Claiming Their Maiden will release in about a week. It's my first book with Stormy Night Publications, and my first MFM story, so I'm all sorts of excited about it! :)

Thanks for stopping by, and please check out the authors below for more Saturday Spanking fun!

Coming to Terms: Wife on the Lam by Cara Bristol

Welcome to another fun week of Coming to Terms story spotlights! Today we're taking a closer look at "Wife on the Lam" by Cara Bristol.

"Wife on the Lam" blurb:

After two kids, three moves, and the normal ups and downs of a twenty-two year domestic discipline marriage, Janelle wants to celebrate their wedding anniversary with a luxury vacation. But despite subtle hints like leaving a copy of the Cabana Resort brochure with the Couples' Getaway Package circled in red on her husband's golf magazine, Brent misses all the clues. Worse, he has a business trip on their anniversary! Though her bottom might pay for it later, Janelle decides to take her luxury vacation anyway. Leaving a note and a casserole, she flies off to the resort. She's going to celebrate, with or without him.

If anything proves that he's slacked off on his duties as head of household, this stunt of Janelle's does. Brent had booked the Diamond Package at the Cabana Resort to surprise her and planned to present her with the tickets when she took him to airport for his "business trip." She's ruined the surprise, but he's not going to let her ruin their anniversary. It's time to take his errant wife in hand and get their marriage back on track.


"Wife on the Lam" excerpt:

Sitting on the bed in his underwear, Brent could hear Janelle singing in the shower. Then the water shut off, the hair dryer ran for a while, and then she pranced out wearing the scandalous suit and a seductive smile.
He twirled his hand. “Let’s see the back.”
She spun around. The thong disappeared in her crack, completely baring her apple-red ass cheeks. She faced him again. “You don’t think it’s too skimpy?”
“Not for what I have in mind,” he said.
The curve of her lips widened.
“Let me clean up.” He headed into the bath before her come-hither look could work on him.
When he emerged from the shower, he found Janelle readying for an afternoon swim. She had towels rolled and had gathered up her e-reader and his, sunblock, the camera, and a couple bottles of water. Her poor ass glowed red. “Do you prefer the beach or the pool?” She faced him.
“Neither. At least not right now.” He hitched his towel more firmly around his waist and padded to the bed. He sat on the mattress, and patted his knee. “Over here, sweetheart.”
She widened her eyes before her face crumpled with dismay. “B-But, I thought…I figured when we got home…” she trailed off.
He shook his head. He’d always meted out discipline as soon as possible, believing in the importance of prompt punishment. “We need to put this matter behind us. You won’t enjoy yourself if you spend the entire vacation worrying about being spanked.”
“Then don’t spank me.” Her eyes held a plea. “I learned my lesson.”
“As uncomfortable as the horseback ride may have been, having a bad time doesn’t count as discipline. You ignored my feelings by taking off without any explanation. We’re partners, Janelle. I don’t check out of our marriage when I don’t get what I want.”
Her lower lip quivered, and she hung her head. “I’m really sorry.”
“I know you are.” He patted his lap again. “Let’s get this over with.”
Janelle trudged toward him like a woman facing the gallows. “It’s going to hurt.”
More than usual because of the sunburn. “Yes, it will,” he agreed.
His wife settled her soft, curvy body over his lap and squirmed into place. Her toes rested on one side of the bed, her face on the other. As if readying for the pain, she twisted the light cotton duvet in her fist. “I wish you wouldn’t do this.”
“I wish I didn’t have to.” He rubbed her ass. Curvy, round, and warm. Heat radiated off the sunburn. He would make her ass hotter still. He actually felt sorry for her. He squeezed her rounded tush, and the color faded, showing white where his fingers had been. He normally had her remove her panties when he spanked her, but he liked the look of the thong. The string up her crack drew a target around her cheeks. Not that he needed one. His hand knew the way to her ass.
Ordinarily, he would prepare with a few light spanks first, but because of her already reddened state, he decided skipping the warm-up would be kinder on her skin.
He brought his palm down in the middle of her cheek. A white handprint appeared.
Janelle yelped.
He smacked the other cheek, then slapped the first again before all the color had returned. Janelle moaned, twisted the starched cotton and pressed it against her mouth.
“I’m sorry. I’m sorry. I promise I won’t do that again!” she cried.
By the sixth spank, her whitened sunburned ass looked like two snow cones, and she splayed her hands across her bottom. He restrained her wrists against her waist. She buried her face in the duvet and sobbed with big, gloppy tears.
Her crying usually didn’t come until near the end, but he didn’t think she faked distress to soften his heart and get him to relent. A spanking on top of a sunburn had to hurt like a motherfucker. The heaviness of regret settled in his chest; he hadn’t planned to spend their anniversary this way. But he hadn’t chosen the timing — she had. He couldn’t let her off the hook. If he’d learned anything about his wife of twenty-two years, it was that she would take a mile if he allowed her an inch.

Saturday Spankings: A teaser from "Breaking His Rules" (FREE on Amazon!!!)



Ah...Saturday Spankings time! Grab your coffee, pull up a chair, and enjoy some naughty excerpts.

Today I'm sharing a snippet from my short story "Breaking His Rules" that just so happens to be FREE on Amazon right now. I was kind of bad and posted more than eight sentences, but they are short, so hopefully I won't get into trouble with Headmistress Blake:) In the following scene, Amanda's just endured a spanking from her strict boss, and now she's feeling...flustered. Little does she know, Ivan isn't quite finished with her bottom yet.


“I want . . I need…” Oh God, why was it so hard to admit her needs out loud? It certainly wasn’t fear of rejection. She’d seen the bulge tenting his pants earlier and knew she wasn’t alone in her excitement.

“I’ll tell you want I want.” He groped her ass, reminding her of the thermometer’s presence in her hole. “I want to slam my cock into this hot little pussy of yours. Of course, if you have a temperature, I can’t in good conscience use you in this condition.”

“I don’t have a temperature.” Her tone was strained, high-pitched and urgent.

"Well, let’s find out. Shall we?”

Coming to Terms: This Moment by Alta Hensley


It's Wednesday and that means it's time to spotlight one of the individual stories in the Coming to Terms domestic discipline anthology. This week we're taking a closer look at "This Moment" by Alta Hensley. Keep reading...there's a steamy excerpt below that will have you squirming!


"This Moment" blurb:

Neely and Caine love each other, but after three years of marriage, they feel like strangers living in the same house. Caine's discipline has lost its edge, and Neely feels neglected and lost. In hopes of rekindling the passion and intimacy they once shared, they set off to spend a week in a lakeside cabin. Just as they began to resolve some of their problems and start to explore erotic spankings again, the demands of Neely's job put a damper on their vacation. Caine hasn't punished Neely in a long time, but he's sick and tired of being pushed away. Will a real session over his knee be enough to get Neely to finally open up?


"This Moment" excerpt:

"Apparently a spanking is long overdue."

She sighed a little. "I'm not really in the mood for it. It's been a long day —"

Caine interrupted, "Last time I checked, your mood wasn't what decided if you got one or not. You know this is needed. You said so yourself."

"I changed my mind."

Neely took a step back from him and found her shoulder blades pressed against the warm wood of the fireplace mantle. With no escape, she gazed up at his striking features. The man still had the power to hypnotize her with his powerful glare. The long overdue head of household she had desperately missed leaned in to press his palm against the wall behind her, capturing her with his piercing eyes, and the warmth of his body.

"I haven't." Caine's expression was dead serious, despite his laughter a moment ago. The fervor that every square inch of her body evoked blazed in his eyes, releasing the same heat as the flames burning in the fireplace behind her. Caine grasped her arm tighter and started to walk toward the kitchen chair.

Neely could barely breathe when he looked at her that way. Her pulse quickened, her chest pounded, and her stomach tightened. The scent of his masculinity swirled around her, making her mind blur. She wanted so badly to reach out and press her palm against the rough texture of his face. Neely knew exactly how it would feel against her fingertips. His demand melted the crux of her sexuality and made her hungry for more. She wanted to feel his hands over her entire body.

Caine's hand on her arm was hot and searing, yet sent shivers dashing through her. She studied his confidence, his determination, and knew there was no getting out of the discipline in store.

"Lower your pants and panties," Caine commanded like so many times before. The simple and direct order sent an electric spark through her. He sat down on the chair and waited for her compliance.

She tried to step back from him, but he stopped her with his hand on her wrist. Even though she desperately wanted this, there was a part of her that wanted to resist as well. She wanted his command, craved his dominance.

"Neely…" he warned. Meeting her eyes, he went on. "Take off your clothes and lay over my lap."

"But…you just said to lower my pants."

"That was before you decided to hesitate," he said and tightened his grip on her. "I want my wife submissive. I think we may need to work on that."

His authority and demand melted her. Submission washed over her by his tone alone. Chewing on her bottom lip, she slowly did as he asked, removing each item of clothing under his watchful eye.

"It’s been a long time, Caine," she said softly as she lowered herself across his thighs. Turning her head to look at him, she added, "I've missed this."

He nodded as his arm tightened around her naked body to hold her in position. Caine held her tighter and closer than he had in ages. It seemed as if he never meant to let her go. Everything in her world felt right again. Comfort, security, love, and an intense sexual desire, racked her nerves. Lying over his hard-muscled thighs, all she could think was that she needed him buried within her.

The first swat to her behind jolted her. The familiar, yet foreign sting, quickly reminded her of why she actually used to try to avoid a spanking. She enjoyed the thought of a spanking, the lead up to one, the sexual thrill she got all the way until…the actual spanking.

"Ouch!” she wailed. "Okay, you got your point."

She resisted against the hand that held her firmly in place. Her teeth clenched as she attempted to twist and turn her way to freedom. He met each move with another searing swat.

Caine paused for a teasing minute and continued on with the fiery cadence on her reddening behind. "We start fresh here. Tonight. You and I are married. We will always be married, and divorce will never be an option. I love you. I'll always love you. It's unconditional, Neely. It always will be." The words warmed her soul, even though her punished behind was now a growing inferno.

"Yes," she agreed, grabbing on to his ankles. Squeezing with each spank. "My love for you is unconditional. I love —" she gasped as his hand delivered another repetition of swats. "I love you," she blurted, hoping to stop the spanking.

An electric connection seemed to arc between them, as Neely surrendered under Caine's heavy hand. Her mind blanked and the sensations of her body took over. Submission surged through her as his hand peppered every spot of her upturned bottom. She dissolved into him, while closing her eyes and truly yielding to the delivered discipline.


And when, finally, he reached down to cradle her body close to his, she could only gasp for breath and whisper, "I need you. I need you now."

Book Spotlight: Latin Heat by Denise Wyant

I'm excited to spotlight "Latin Heat" by Denise Wyant today, an erotic short that's a perfect summer read. Oh, and there's an ass slap in it! Not a full on spanking, but hey, maybe my spanko-ness is starting to rub off on my friend, Denise? Dare I dream? :)

Oh, and I'll let you in on a little secret..."Latin Heat" is going to be free on Amazon July 19th-22nd! Mark your calenders!

Blurb:

After her divorce, Simone Blackburn treats herself to some rest and relaxation at an exclusive resort in the Caribbean. Her cheating ex-husband has ruined her for men; Simone is determined to spend her time away concentrating on the beauty of the tropical paradise. Not falling in love.

Roberto Vargas’ main focus is running La Isla Bonita Resort since his father handed over the business. When a red-headed vixen has trouble with her room key, Roberto finds his heart captured by the high-spirited beauty despite her sharp tongue.

Will Simone conqueror her distrust of the opposite sex and open her hardened heart to Roberto? Can Roberto show Simone how loving and caring a man can really be?

Excerpt:

After several minutes, Roberto spoke, “Querida, are you ready? They are going to start the finale.” 

She snuggled back into his arms. “I can’t wait.” Her voice dropped when she whispered, “I hope you’re ready. These won’t be the only fireworks tonight.”

A low growl preceded Roberto’s comment of “forget the finale.” He quickly stood and gracefully tossed her over his shoulder.

Simone laughed, giddy with the champagne and Roberto’s caveman-like behavior. Her laughter died when he swatted her firmly on her ass. “What the hell was that for?” she mumbled.

“For causing us to miss the finale.” He barged through the front door of his home before he kicked it shut with his foot. He then confessed, “And for being so darn cute and sexy.”

“Well, then, I suppose that was all—” Her sentence went unfinished when Roberto threw her on his bed and pounced, landing on top of her.

“What were you saying about fireworks, Simone?” His hand roughly grasped her breast through the sundress she wore.

She moaned at his touch, her body moving beneath him. “No talking, Berto, kiss me.”

He rewarded her with a breath-stealing kiss. Their tongues twined as their hands tugged and pulled, sloppily shedding clothing. She heard her dress tear in the process. The man was so impatient! And admit it, girl, you love every minute of it! Once they were naked, Roberto’s lips skimmed down Simone’s neck and placed a love bite at the base.

New releases! Breaking His Rules & It Takes a Dom

A couple of weeks ago I sent a quick little 8,300 word story to Books to Go Now for their Hot Summer Nights submission call. All I was hoping for upon acceptance was a single release of my story, "Breaking His Rules". Imagine my surprise when Jennifer Conner says she wants to include "Breaking His Rules" in an ebook and a PRINT anthology with my other Books to Go Now titles! Then when she finds out I'm going to RNConvention in August, she hurries to get the print book finished in time...and and and has a cover made with Jimmy Thomas on it. I was, and still am, over the moon about it.

The ebook and print anthology includes my new story, Breaking His Rules, as well as Christmas with the Professor, Tessa's Submission, Valentine Submission, and Snowed in with Santa. I had to come up with a new title for the anthology, and after some brainstorming and bouncing ideas off of a few friends, I decided on It Takes a Dom.

"Breaking His Rules" blurb:

Amanda has always ignored the attraction she feels for her strict boss, Mr. Mizenov. He's a bit mysterious and holds everyone at a distance, and she doubts she has a shot in the dark with him anyway. He begins to treat her differently though after she forgets her e-reader at work one evening, and she suspects it's because he's spied the titles of the spicy books she enjoys - particularly the book she'd had open at the time, Spanked and Dominated by the Boss. Yikes. Talk about embarrassing. Even worse, she's a virtual kink-virgin in real life, and when Mr. Mizenov threatens to spank her if she's a mere minute late for work, she has to make a choice. To be on time...or to be naughty?

Note: "Breaking His Rules" is a short story that contains scenes of spanking, medical fetish (temperature taking, oh my!), and other erotic content.

Saturday Spankings: Snooping around on a spanko's e-reader...


Welcome to Saturday Spankings!





The following sentences are from my brand spanking new release, "Breaking His Rules". In this scene, Ivan is looking at the books on his employee Amanda's e-reader. To his delight, he finds out she has a bit of a kinky side.


Ivan perused the medical fetish titles next and took note that the rectal temperature passages were highlighted. How interesting. Of all the kinks Amanda could’ve had, he would’ve never guessed this one. He also would’ve never guessed the idea of taking Amanda’s temperature in this intimate manner would make all the blood in his body rush straight to his cock.

He growled and turned the e-reader off. His curiosity was satisfied, but now he had a whole new problem. He wanted Amanda more than ever. He wanted her beneath him, squirming and whimpering and pleading to be taken hard.

Coming to Terms: Days with You by Jade Cary

I've been spotlighting the individual stories from Coming to Terms the past few Wednesdays, going in reverse order of appearance. Today we get to enjoy a close up of "Days with You" by Jade Cary!

"Days with You" blurb:

All of your favorites from The Point of it All (including Val, in flashbacks) return in this heartrending short story about love and loss, and about keeping dreams, and hope, alive.

Diana Kenyon-Rios arrives in Chile for the Christmas holidays--her first after losing her husband, Val. As she prepares to celebrate the holidays in Val's home country, she reminisces on her short but wonderful relationship and marriage to Val, and how she tried to come to terms with his...way. Not exactly a DD lifestyle in the truest sense, but let's face it--Val liked to spank an ass. Why? And why did Diana allow it? Did she benefit? Did he? Did it define their life, or did it take up a small, but not insignificant part of their relationship?

And as Diana attempts to reconcile his death with the life she must lead now, something keeps her from fully accepting that he is gone. She feels him in her bones so deeply, it is as if he is still alive Through intimate talks with friends and reminiscences, she finds a way to hold on to the greatest love she will ever know.

But will her dreams be enough?


excerpt:

            He was like a vision out of some movie, a man clad in black, several days’ growth on his face, and a fierce determination in his eyes. That is what she remembered of their first meeting. Looking back, as she did many times after that first time, she realized she had been in a fog that night, that strange, almost fictitious night, when Valerio Rios entered her life. Taken from a grocery store parking lot in Miami by thugs, beaten, bound, held captive, moved from place to place… yes. She had been in a fog that night. Even the kindness and generosity of the Gitanos people who took her in and made her well could not lift the havoc dysentery and a concussion wreaked on her. What other reason could there be for her to refuse to go with her rescuer, and instead pull a gun on him? Such stupidity could only be excused by extreme illness, head injury and exhaustion. Yes, she didn’t see it at the time. Even when he threatened her with a spanking, of all things—and in Spanish—she still held fast to her belief that staying put was better than going with this man. And she punctuated that belief by whizzing a bullet past his ear.
             Voy a tener los pantalones abajo y nalgadas en frente de mis hombres.
            I will take your pants down and spank you in front of my men.
            And that is what he did. While she did not appreciate the humiliation she was forced to endure, she appreciated that he kept his word. She pondered the idea often during her short time with Val. He was a man who thought nothing of swatting her bottom when provoked, and she was a woman who tolerated it and loved him anyway. She fought the idea, and she embraced it–accomplishing both sometimes in the same day.
            A deep ache settled in her stomach, and she rolled onto her side to ease the pain. She adored everything about him: his old-fashioned ways, his insistence that she behave like a lady, his command of her when she needed commanding, and his hold on her–albeit at arms length–when she needed some space. He was a man who wanted the best for her and out of her, and he never asked less of himself than what he asked of her, and others. He loved her with a fierceness she would not have believed existed, had she not known it first-hand. The pain settled deeper knowing she would never be loved like that again.
            “Señora Rios?”
            Diana turned over and swiped at an errant tear. “Yes, Jessica?”
            “I go now.”
            “Okay. See you at ten a.m. Thursday?”
            “Si.”
            Diana did not turn over again until she heard the front door click closed.

“Lock the door behind me, querida.”
            “You worry too much.”
            Val’s strong fingers grip her chin, and he lifts her face to meet his eyes. “If harm came to you, love, I wouldn’t survive it.”
            “Do you think that if someone wants to harm me, a locked door will stop them?”
            A smile plays on his mouth. “If I had my way, I would keep you hidden from all eyes but mine so that the desire of another soul to even touch you is removed.”
            “That’s kind of romantic, in a sick, twisted way.”
            He kisses the tip of her nose and brushes a light kiss over her lips. “Lock the door behind me.”
            Diana grabs his arm as he crosses the threshold to the outside world. His bicep is hard in her hand, the soft blue tee-shirt he wears soft against skin, caramel-kissed and just as soft. “Don’t go.” Tears appear out of nowhere and prick her eyes.
            “Corazón, my heart, mía amor.” He shakes his head. Emotion sits in his cerulean eyes. He rests his forehead against hers and closes his eyes. “You are my life. My blood runs in my veins because you give me life. When I am not here I want you to think about how much I love you, and how every thought, every action, is for you, love. You alone.” His eyes meet hers. “Will you do that for me, mi adora?”
            “Don’t go,” she whispers.
            He kisses her one more time. “Lock the door.” He swats her bottom, and the sting lingers as she watches his car disappear down the road. Only then does she close the door and turn the deadbolt with a click.
            You are my life. My blood runs in my veins because you give me life. She grips the phone tight in her hand. She cannot hear the person on the other end through her screams.  When I am not here I want you to think about how much I love you, and how every thought, every action, is for you, love. She drops the phone and falls to her knees.

            You alone.

Two new covers!

I have not one, but TWO new covers to share today from my upcoming releases with Books to Go Now!

"Breaking His Rules" blurb and cover:


Amanda has always ignored the attraction she feels for her strict boss, Mr. Mizenov. He's a bit mysterious and holds everyone at a distance, and she doubts she has a shot in the dark with him anyway. He begins to treat her differently though after she forgets her e-reader at work one evening, and she suspects it's because he's spied the titles of the spicy books she enjoys - particularly the book she'd had open at the time, Spanked and Dominated by the Boss. Yikes. Talk about embarrassing. Even worse, she's a virtual kink-virgin in real life, and when Mr. Mizenov threatens to spank her if she's a mere minute late for work, she has to make a choice. To be on time...or to be naughty?

"Breaking His Rules" is a quickie, about 8,300 words. I shared a few snippets in the past few weeks during Saturday Spankings, and the title kept changing. First it was "Amanda's Story", then it became "Ivan's Rules", then finally I settled on "Breaking His Rules". Oh, and it has a thermometer scene in it! You know how I love my thermometer scenes:)


It Takes a Dom cover:



It Takes a Dom is a print collection that will feature the following stories:

Breaking His Rules
Christmas with the Professor
Valentine Submission
Tessa's Submission
Snowed in with Santa

I'm super excited to see the above stories in print! I'll have copies of It Takes a Dom when I'm in Vegas next month for RNConvention at the Golden Nugget. The book fair will be held on Saturday, August 10th from 10am - 2pm. If you're in the area, please stop by and say hi!

Coming to Terms: Reconnecting by Celeste Jones

Keep Calm and Get Your Spank On! It's Wednesday, and that means it's time for another excerpt from a story in Coming to Terms. This week, we're enjoying a peek at "Reconnecting" by Celeste Jones:

"Reconnecting" blurb:

When Daisy's online time begins to interfere with her relationship with her husband, Reece, he takes matters into his own hands. In addition to applying a liberal dose of discipline to her backside which has spent too much time sitting at the computer, he arranges for them to spend some time at a remote resort with no Wi-Fi. Sometimes you have to disconnect in order to reconnect.

Excerpt:

         “Oh really?”  He leaned forward to peer at the computer.  “So, what had you so captivated that I could sneak all the way through the house without you noticing?”
            Daisy laughed in triumph and pointed to the screen.  “I played ‘annex’ and put the X on triple letter and it was triple word.  I’m kicking Lily’s butt.”
            Reece stood up and studied the scene around him.  His wife — still wearing her work clothes — her desk piled with papers, two half--consumed soda cans festered in the clutter and her attention focused on a word game.
            He drew in a deep breath.  “I’m very proud of you, honey.  I’m sure your sister is reeling from the sting of your savvy word play.  However, since I’m home now, maybe it’s time you had some face time with a real person.  Namely, me.”
            He clicked the mouse and closed the screen.
            Daisy reacted with more alarm than she had to the possibility of an intruder in the house. She shrieked and grabbed his hand.  “What are you doing? Stop!”
            She spun on Reece with a wild-eyed panic he had never seen before.  She slapped at his hand and hyperventilated.  “Stop, stop, stop.”  She grabbed the mouse away from him and opened the screen back up.  Immediately Reece could see she began to calm down.
            He stood for a moment and watched his wife lose herself in cyberspace.  An intruder had entered their home, one that could be dangerous and destructive, but just not in the way he’d expected when he’d picked up the baseball bat a few minutes earlier.
            He left the room and wondered how long it would be until Daisy noticed his absence. 
####
            Daisy placed her hands on the keyboard and her breathing returned to normal.  Reece sure had scared her.  For a fleeting moment, his closing the computer screen had been more frightening than when she’d believed him to be a burglar, but that was just silly because of course an intruder was more frightening than someone shutting down the computer.
            Her right hand caressed the mouse and she clicked around cyberspace with precision. She took another turn in the word game with her sister, ‘liked’ a few things her friends had to say, then moved to another site and pinned some recipes and decorating ideas.
            A soft ‘ping’ told her she’d gotten a new message so she hurried to her email program and found a note from Reece.
            Hey Hot Stuff, why don’t you leave cyberspace and come to bed for some real world fun?
She giggled then replied.
            You bet.  I’ll be there in just one minute.
            Right before she shut down the computer she remembered, it’s Monday.  I have to see what everyone is talking about on Fika at ‘Governing Ana’.  I’ll just be a minute.  I’ll skim through the post and only read the first couple of comments and then I’ll head to bed.
            Ana was the funniest blogger, and she had the most interesting discussions every Monday for a post she called Fika. She said it meant something about coffee and pastries in some country in Europe.
            She promised herself she’d be quick.  She didn’t even log in so she wouldn’t be tempted to participate.
      The first comment came from Minelle. How did she always manage to be the first one?  Then Ana responded, and the two of them teased back and forth.  Several others joined in and soon Daisy found herself giggling over the banter.
            She had to be part of it. Reece wouldn’t find out.  She could log in and write her response.  It wouldn’t even last a minute.
            While Daisy posted her comment, someone else weighed in on the discussion and mentioned a post on another blog.  Instinctively, Daisy clicked on the link.  Since she had already logged in, she left a comment there too.
            Despite being a pretty bold woman, it had taken her weeks to get up the nerve to move from lurking on the numerous blogs she visited to actually creating an account and posting comments.  On Love Our Lurkers Day, she decided to dive in and leave a comment for some of her favorite bloggers to tell them how much they were appreciated. 
            What had started as a few shy hellos quickly blossomed into a whole circle of cyber friends who knew more about her than only the fact that she lived in a domestic discipline marriage.  In addition to commenting on blogs, she emailed nearly every day with a handful of other women in domestic discipline relationships.  There had even been a few who suggested she start her own blog.
          Venturing into this new, and controversial, way of life had been so daunting to Daisy.  What would she have done without her cyber friends?  It wasn’t like she could chat with the women at work about whether they considered wooden spoons an appropriate spanking implement for staying up too late.  Or call her sister to ask about the best way to soothe a stinging and reddened butt.
            The first time she’d gotten a severe punishment spanking which she believed to be unfair, she’d spent hours emailing with some of her cyber friends and reading blog posts from other women in DD relationships to talk about her confusion over her role as a DD wife.  She trusted Reece, but what if she didn’t agree with his decision to punish her?  She poured out her anxieties to her friends and they offered support and understanding.
            She did spend a great deal of time on the computer, but this community filled a need within her to connect with others in the lifestyle. If her town had a domestic discipline club,        she’d go and hang out there, but it didn’t, so she hung out at the cyberspace equivalent.
          Thanks to the advice and support from her DD friends Daisy had the courage to talk to Reece about her concerns.  They’d had a long heart to heart conversation which renewed their commitment to each other and to DD.
            Crap.  With all the comments and emails, forty-five minutes had passed since she’d told Reece she’d be in bed soon. 
            She shut down the computer and hoped she’d find her husband fast asleep.
