One of my favorite things to do during the summer is sit by the pool and read ROMANCE books. Spicy romance, sweet romance, historical, sci fi, etc - it doesn't matter because I love it all. Oh, but if the romance has some spanking in it, then I REALLY love it. If you're looking for something new to read this summer, I highly recommend giving a spanking romance book a try. It might surprise you (hopefully in a good way).
 
Here's an excerpt from one of my recent releases, Commander's Slave, a sci fi spanking romance:

“Are you still going to punish me, Master?”

“Yes, Betsy,” he said gently. “You must learn to obey me, and I expect after I warm your little bottom you’ll think twice before you hide from me again.” He decided not to include the name slipup, because he’d rather liked hearing his name on her lips. She’d corrected her error quickly by calling him Master anyway. As long as she never made the slipup in public, he wouldn’t mention it.

To his surprise, she didn’t argue over her impending spanking, nor did she attempt to escape his lap. He suspected their little talk had lessened her fears. She nodded and twisted her hands together, biting her lip. Pink stained her cheeks, and he found her nervousness adorable. Though he still hated to cause her pain, he knew it was for the best. If word got out that the commander of Sumlin District’s warriors had a disobedient slave, his reputation would be tarnished and town authorities would call for Betsy to be punished publicly. A commander’s slave was expected to be a model slave, and even though the house was secluded and far from the prying eyes of the town, Edek refused to risk her safety.

It was his duty to punish her. To mold her into a good little slave. He only hoped she didn’t grow to hate him for it.

“Stand up, Betsy. Let’s get this over with.” He helped her to her feet, guiding her to stand between his spread thighs. She bowed her head in a show of submission so lovely he couldn’t tear his eyes away. Sweetness radiated from her, and as clearly as he’d sensed her emotions earlier, he sensed her willingness to please. “Tell me why you’re to be punished, Betsy. I want to hear you say it.”

She gasped at his command and her chest rose and fell heavily under her uneven breaths. Strands of auburn fell forward and she stared down at him, her lips parted in surprise.

“Betsy,” he said in a warning tone. Color rose to her cheeks, and his groin tightened as desire spiraled through him at the sight of her nervousness.

“I-I am to be punished because I didn’t come up to your bedroom like I was supposed to.” Her words came out soft but strained.

“And?”

“And I was trying to hide from you, Master.” She gulped and licked her lips as she stiffened. With her head still bowed, she glanced away and her gaze wandered around the room. “If you’re waiting for me to apologize, that’s not going to happen. I’m afraid I’m not very sorry.”

Edek laughed and grasped her hand, squeezing it as his fingertips stroked the softness of her palm. “By the time I’m done reddening your bottom, you will be sorry, Betsy. I can promise you that.”

He guided her over his lap, biting the inside of his mouth to restrain a groan as her center pressed down on his swollen cock. Taking her hands, he held them at the small of her back, ignoring her noise of protest. She wiggled into place, as if trying to get comfortable, and Edek once again had to bite the inside of his mouth lest he moan at the exquisite feel of her body against his.

“You were naughty, Betsy,” he said, reaching for the hem of her dress. “Naughty slaves get spanked on their bare bottoms.”

  3. I still look forward to summer even though it's pretty much like the rest of the year--except hotter. I think it's a holdover from the old school days. It feels special, like vacation time, even though I'm working.
