Lasting Punishment - Saturday Spankings #SatSpanks #excerpt #erotic


Hi Guys,

Welcome to Saturday Spankings.    I just love the Mardi Gras designs - don't you?  My teaser today is from my cowboy romance The Rancher's Woman.   Set in the small Wyoming town of Hope Junction, The Rancher's Woman is Tessa and Chance's love story. Tessa has just moved to town to start a new business and Chance is the local rancher who falls for her.  My extract joins Tessa and her friend Janey discussing the punishments they received from their men for hiding the strange occurrences at Tessa's bungalow.  Janey has just told Tessa that her fiance, Wes, Chance's cousin, punished her severely for not advising Tessa to 'fess up as soon as she confided in her.  She is surprised that Tessa is not still feeling the effects of a similar punishment... 

"Aren’t you still feeling your strapping?  Reckon Chance must’ve whipped you at least as hard.  I’m still feeling the effects - welts are gone, but I’m tender still.”

Tessa looked at Janey, her face pale, “He hasn’t strapped me yet.  He punished me at the cabin - a horrible spanking, belting and switching, but that’s all,” Tessa told Janey.

  That was as far as she was confiding.  She was too embarrassed to admit to the other ways Chance punished her.  She certainly had no intention of revealing how he intended to supplement her strapping, either. 
Pop over to my website blog for the next eight sentences...

Everyone in town knows sparks of attraction have been flying between Tessa and Chance almost from the moment her nursery business brought her to beautiful Hope Junction, Wyoming.  Despite his bossy ways, Tessa soon begins to realize that Chance might well be the man she’s been waiting for her whole life. Will Chance’s decision to take her in hand tear them apart or will Tessa learn to see his discipline as proof of the love they will share for the rest of their lives? 


       Sadly, my book The Rancher's Woman is no longer for sale.  The reason is that I could no longer deal with the nasty and vicious abuse reviews on Amazon.  I tried but I felt bullied and too distressed by them.
I requested that it be pulled and James at Stormy Night was kind enough to understand. It is no longer available for sale anywhere at my request. Thanks for the good wishes everyone. Your support really helps. Just wish everyone who loved our books would write reviews and drown out the hate.

Undressing Your Characters. Enjoy the Anticipation - or Just rip 'em off? Preferences?



Posting today after being inspired by a discussion on Alta Hensley's facebook page about undressing scenes in books. I have two. One from #1 Best Selling Erotic Western  The Rancher's Woman and the other from my Amazon Top 100 Erotic Suspense  Intimate Knowledge Part 5.    Intimate Knowledge is below the extract from The Rancher's Woman.  Comment on preferences, please?

Set in the small Wyoming town of Hope Junction, The Rancher's Woman is Tessa and Chance's love story.  Tessa has just moved to town to start a new business and Chance is the local rancher who falls for her.  In this extract  Chance is undressing Tessa for the first time:

   He let out his breath, hauled her over to sit on his lap and gave her a slow, fierce kiss that shook them both with its intensity. When he finally let her go, tears were rolling slowly down her cheeks. He kissed them away a little at a time and told her. “You’re not alone in that, babe. I’m already far gone. I’m all out in love with you.”
Neither spoke for a long moment, their breathing the only sound in the truck. Finally he asked her softly. “Got any candles, hon?”
  Tessa sniffed. “Um, yeah. Plenty. All different types and scents.”
“Thought you might.” Sitting her back on the seat beside him, he tongued her ear wetly and told her. “Looking forward to undressing you in candlelight, Therese Marie.” As he put his truck into gear, he added quietly. “We’ll take this slow, babe. No point in rushing a good thing.”
**************
Tessa breathed a sigh of relief, the rest of the journey passing in a haze of anticipation. His last words made it clear it wouldn’t be all the way, but just the idea of having him in her bed, naked together, falling asleep in his arms was heady stuff. To finally have this after the waiting enhanced it. Guess he knew what he was doing drawing things out.
When they pulled in to the spot behind her house, they walked hand in hand toward her bedroom in silence. Once inside, she opened her cupboard, indicating the shelf that held her selection of candles. “Take your pick, cowboy.”
“Don’t mind if I do.” He told her. Amazing Tessa by selecting her entire collection of over forty candles, he started to spread them around the room. She watched in fascination as he chose each place carefully, clearly using his firefighter expertise to guard against accidents. “Get lighting woman.” He growled jolting her out of her surprise.
Together they set up the candles, creating the most romantic atmosphere Tessa had ever experienced. When they finished, the glow was bright enough to illuminate the blatant desire in his eyes. Taking her by the hand, he leaned lazily on her mirrored dresser and stood her in front of him slightly to the side so she was fully visible in the mirror. Tessa melted as he ran his finger down the bridge of her nose and tucked a stray, fiery curl behind her ear. She drew in her breath as his hand cupped her sex through her silky dress and he informed her softly. “I’m desperate to discover if the curls here match the hair on your head or your lashes.”
She laughed sweetly and softly. “Really? That’s what you think about when you imagine me naked?”
“Damn, right. Thought about it that first night when we were sitting out there on my Gram’s old couch and every night since.” He kept his hand firmly on the apex between her thighs while he traced her lips and jaw line. “You wanna give me a hint?” He asked her in a low, husky growl.
She shook her head slowly, biting her lip, answering him a voice that was a slow caress. “Guess you’ll just have to find out for yourself.”
And he did. Little by little, one garment at a time, he bared her completely to his admiring gaze in the candlelight. Tessa found it dizzily erotic to be gradually uncovered in front of her own mirror as he remained fully clothed. She’d undressed in front of that mirror so many times, but tonight the woman she saw was the one reflected in his eyes. He looked at her like she was the most desirable woman on earth and so she was.
When she was completely naked before him he reached out and gently pulled on the curls nestled between her thighs. “Flame colored like your hair, just like I hoped. You know why, hon, because then I can watch them turn dark like your lashes when I suck on your clit and make your sweet pussy weep.


                                

Now for a different approach

“Take it off.”
I spin and look at him in disbelief.  “What!”


He steps back, folding his arms across his chest in an unyielding stance.  Indicating the dress with a sharp jerk of his head, he repeats the order.  “You heard me.  The dress.  Take it off.  Now.”
“Leo, no.” 
I try to insert pleading in to my tone to cover the defiance his outrageous order fires up in me.  My defiance must slip through, because he shakes his head in reproof, drops his arms and steps back towards me.  I gasp as he takes each side of the plunging neckline in either hand and rips it apart.  Thrusting the remnants of the slutty, designer dress down my shocked curves to the floor, he kicks them behind him in disgust, before he roams his blazing eyes over my now almost nude form. 

Leave a comment on the two approaches!  Please - love to know your thoughts.

Consider This Your Last Warning - Intimate Knowledge Part 7 - Saturday Spankings #SatSpanks #eroticexcerpt


Hi Guys,

Welcome to Saturday Spankings.  My teaser today is from Intimate Knowledge Part 7.  It was  released in conjunction with BDSM Goodreads Bedtime Stories audio extract in July 2014.  Released in multiple volumes it is an ongoing serial. Leo Gold, cultured, half-Italian heir apparent to the nefarious Boston, Gold crime family, has no idea Raisa Gordon is a vice detective when he falls for her. The FBI use the opportunity to place her undercover as romantic bait to infiltrate the Gold operation. Trouble is Raisa finds him impossible to resist, especially as he has an uncanny understanding of her long hidden, dark need for domination and discipline. 

In this extract, Leo and Raisa are driving back in his limo after an evening out together.  Having given in to his advances up to a point, Raisa now tries to negotiate with him over the extent of his control of her - in particular his surveillance and punishments.  Written in the first person from Leo and Raisa’s alternating POV, this extract is through Raisa's eyes...

*********

 “I need to know you’re safe, Raisa.”
“Alright, keep a protection detail on me then, but no reporting back to you and no more photographs!”
He shrugged and nodded in agreement, “That’s acceptable as is no more spanking threats.”
I was glad of the surveillance concession, but surprised and ambivalently disappointed at his ready capitulation over the spanking.  Turns out my disappointment was seriously misplaced.
“There’ll be no more threats.  From now on, I’ll simply follow through and spank you soundly whenever you earn it.  Consider this your last warning.”

Saturday Spankings - Ouchy Welts - The Morning After #SatSpanks #Spanking #excerpteroticromance


Hi Guys,

Welcome to Saturday Spankings.  My teaser today is from my cowboy romance The Rancher's Woman.   Its now#1 in Erotic Westerns on Amazon UK and held the same#1 spot on Amazon US for 10 days.  Its in the top twenty in BDSM in the US and went as high as #5.  Set in the small Wyoming town of Hope Junction, The Rancher's Woman is Tessa and Chance's love story. Tessa has just moved to town to start a new business and Chance is the local rancher who falls for her.  My extract follows on from last week.  It joins Tessa and Chance the morning after Chance punished Tessa with a hard spanking and a thorough belting. It is the first morning they have woken up together and Tessa is horrified when Chance teases her about her snoring.  As the last three sentences are short, I've counted them as one.

***********
 He grinned at her, sitting up on the bed with the sheet covering his lower half, looking all gorgeous with his tanned, naked torso glistening in the sunlight, “’Fraid so, babe, real cute little snorts, grunts, and whistles. It was downright lyrical.”
 Glaring at him, she stomped back into the bathroom, striving to be furious with him - unsuccessfully - it was hard to be indignant while naked and sporting the marks of his discipline on her bare ass. She grinned at herself in the mirror, a warm, comforting feeling flooding her at their domestic interchange. Was this what it would be like to share a life with him? 
 Turning around to inspect her butt in the mirror, she grimaced at the two overlapping, angry red welts. Looking over her shoulder, she traced them gingerly with her fingers, marveling at how they made her feel. Claimed.  Marked by him.  Truly taken in hand. 
***********

Blurb
Everyone in town knows that sparks of attraction have been flying between Tessa Anderson and Chance Williams almost from the moment her nursery business brought her to beautiful Hope Junction, Wyoming, but it takes an actual fire to really get things moving. When a blaze breaks out in Tessa’s kitchen, it is Chance—a volunteer firefighter—who rushes to the scene.

He asks her out the very next day, but she is shocked by his threat to spank her if it turns out the fire was caused by her carelessness. Nonetheless, Tessa can’t help pushing Chance to see if he would truly spank her, and before she knows it the firm-handed rancher takes her over his knee for a lesson she won’t soon forget. Yet despite his bossy ways, Tessa soon begins to realize that Chance might well be the man she’s been waiting for her whole life, and though it is hard for her to admit, the promise of a sore bottom when she misbehaves arouses her deeply.

But someone apparently has a problem with Tessa’s presence in Hope Junction, and the kitchen fire is followed up by one mysterious incident after another. Tessa keeps these occurrences secret from Chance, believing she can take care of herself. When the truth eventually comes to light, Tessa soon learns that Chance takes her safety very seriously and a bare-bottom spanking is only the beginning of the thorough, humiliating punishment she faces for her subterfuge. Will Chance’s decision to take her in hand so forcefully tear them apart, or will Tessa see his discipline as proof of the love they will share for the rest of their lives?

Natasha Knight Visits with Her New Hit Release - Protective Custody!



Natasha Knight and I have swapped blogs to share from our latest releases! Just click on the links once you've enjoyed the excerpt from Natasha's Protective Custody.  Over to you Natasha...

Hi Helen, thanks so much for having me here today with my latest release, Protective Custody. I chose a naughty scene to share as I think people just like them… I know I do! Here, Aidan is addressing the fact that Skye has just come without permission.  Positioning – think 69 with her on top:

“Skye,” he whispered, holding her in place when she tried to move off him.
“Let me go,” she managed, her voice small.
He sat up but held her as she was so that her bottom was just inches from his face, spread wide given the position of her legs, so he could see every inch of her.
“I like looking at you like this,” he said, his cock still hard, wanting her warmth around it again.
“Please, Aidan,” she begged, trying again to move off of him.
“All right,” he said, taking her hips and lifting her so she knelt with her back to him, her pussy just lining up with his thick, ready cock. “I’m going to fuck your pussy first, take my pleasure from you, before sending you to the punishment room to teach you how to suck my cock properly,” he said. “Put your hands on my thighs and lean forward. I want to watch your pussy take my cock.”
She glanced back over her shoulder at him and he could see in her eyes her renewed arousal as she did as she was told, leaning forward, holding onto his thighs, her pussy gaping just over his cock.
“Ready?” he asked.
She nodded, dripping on him while trying to mount him.
“You are a naughty girl,” he said while in one swift move, he impaled her on himself, the feel of her tight, wet, hot passage making him dig his hands into her hips to force himself to go slowly, to draw this out, to begin her torment with this fucking. “So greedy,” he said, slowly lifting her up off his cock only to pull her back hard again.
“Please,” she began. “It’s too much.”
“Is your pussy a little sensitive?” he asked, repeating the motion of impaling her onto himself. “You’ll need to learn you’re never to come without permission,” he said, this time moving the thumb of one hand to her dark back hole, causing her to gasp again.
Unable to hold back, he shifted their position, kneeling behind her, and pushed her down so that her face was in the bed and her ass was raised high.
“I think you like this,” he said, fucking her pussy, his finger pushing into her ass. “I think you like my finger in your ass while I fuck you. I wonder,” he said, adding a second finger, stretching her, knowing she was at her edge just on this side of pain. “I wonder how you’ll like my cock fucking your ass,” he said, the thought of it pushing him over the edge, forcing two more final, punishing thrusts before he buried himself deep inside her, his seed bursting from him as he held her close to his body while his cock throbbed, the walls of her pussy once again clamping down around him to signal her second stolen orgasm.

* * * *

Poor Skye, she’s about to make a trip to The Punishment Room. I hope you enjoyed reading it and thanks for dropping by.

Blurb

When Skye Madden is caught trespassing at an exclusive ski resort while trying to support herself as a tabloid photographer, she is stunned to discover that her childhood crush, Aidan Hastings, is the head of security. More shocking still, Aidan tells her in no uncertain terms that if she is found snooping around the resort again, he’ll take her over his knee and give her a spanking she’ll never forget.


 When her boss sends her back to the same resort a year later on another assignment, Skye can’t help but remember Aidan’s warning, but a spanking quickly becomes the least of her worries after she gets lost on the mountain. While trying to find her way back, things go from bad to worse when she witnesses a cold-blooded murder, and she is left with no choice but to confess everything to Aidan. Worst of all, it appears that the murder is connected to the Russian mob. 


Aidan decides he’s taking no chances with his best friend’s little sister, a girl he’s never been able to forget. As a former special agent, he is more than ready to do whatever is needed to keep her safe, even if that means taking her into hiding in an isolated cabin, whether she likes it or not. But Skye Madden has grown even more stubborn and headstrong than he remembered, and he soon realizes it will take quite a bit more than just a bare-bottom spanking to bring her in line. 


Even with her world collapsing around her, Skye wonders how she can let this man—someone who has a place called a “punishment room” in his house, on top of everything else—start to claim her heart again. Can she learn to trust her firm protector, or will she take matters into her own hands and put her life in even greater danger? 


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


Thanks for visiting, Natasha - Love the new book!  Always an auto buy for me.  You can certainly be relied on to deliver the naughty bits!

The Rancher's Woman -Weekend Writing Warrior #8sunday


Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors.  My teaser today is from my cowboy spanking romance The Rancher's Woman.  Released last week it is now #1 in Erotica Western on Amazon and is in the top ten in BDSM.  Set in the small Wyoming town of Hope Junction, The Rancher's Woman is Tessa and Chance's love story. Tessa has just moved to town to start a new business and Chance is the local rancher who falls for her.  My extract joins Tessa and Chance just as he is undressing her for the first time.

***********
Tessa melted as he ran his finger down the bridge of her nose and tucked a stray, fiery curl behind her ear.  She drew in her breath as his hand cupped her sex through her silky dress and he informed her softly, “I’m desperate to discover if the curls here match the hair on your head or your lashes.”
