#SatSpanks - A gentle landing

This excerpt is from my book, Holding Cynthia. Poor Cynthia couldn’t lie still when Antony held her over his knee so he bent her over the bed for more serious treatment (edited):

Cynthia's ass burned but Antony kept spanking, his large, muscular hands raining down on her until her entire consciousness was filled with nothing but the pain and the sense of him possessing her. Then, to her horror, he started to lightly flick the top of her thighs. Being spanked on the bottom was bad. The thighs were one hundred times more sensitive. A thousand. She closed her eyes, gasped again, steeling herself for whatever horrible thing was coming next.

And then he stopped. He sat on the bed and helped her up to stand. He pulled up her panties and jeans before drawing her down to sit beside him. “You’re a good girl,” he said. “You took your spanking well for a first timer.”

When he embraced her, the entire world disappeared as she sheltered in his arms. She loved the smell of him, the deepness of his voice, the way he banished her worries to another dimension.

#SatSpanks - Learning to say thank you

Antony has started spanking Cynthia for the first time and she's discovered it's even worse than she thought:

Wriggling her powerful body as hard as she could, Cynthia almost squirmed off Antony’s lap. At that point, he stopped spanking her.

“I see you want to make this harder on yourself,” he said, helping her to her feet. “If you won’t lie still, then I have no choice but to bend you over the bed. C’mon then.”

He nudged her over to the bed, her hands still pinned to the small of her back, her legs hobbled by her jeans.

“Please don’t,” she whispered.

He turned her to face him. “If I stop now, you’ll never believe me in the future when I say you’re going to be spanked. So I’m going to do this right. I’m going to turn your bottom a memorable shade of red. It’s going to hurt. Then you are going to thank me.”

#SatSpanks - Making it easy

Antony is going to spank Cynthia for the first time. She has agreed to the punishment but she hesitates when it come time to bare her bottom. Antony decides to help her:

He thought for a moment before standing. Turning her away from him, he flattened his hands on her stomach, fingers splayed as he pulled her against his hips. His mouth brushed her ear, his breath hot on her neck.

“Let me help you.” His voice was a coarse whisper.

Before she could answer, he was undoing the zipper of her jeans. He grabbed a handful of fabric at each thigh and with a single tug, pulled her jeans down to her knees. In a second sharp move, he dragged her panties down to the top of her jeans.

She covered her mouth with her hand. A deep, animal-like noise rose from her throat.

He dropped back into the chair. “That wasn’t so hard now, was it?”

#SatSpanks - Initiation

Proud and self-reliant Cynthia Donohue is about to be spanked for the first time (abridged):

Antony tapped his knee. “Assume the position.”

Cynthia bit the inside of her cheek, ready to cry from humiliation more than anything else, unable to move.

“I’m waiting.”

“I’m scared.” Her words came out in dry puffs.

“You should be. But it won’t kill you. It may make you stronger.”

“You don’t understand, I haven’t been with a man since…huh…I dunno. I’ve never had my bottom on display like you’re doing now.”

“First of all, I’m not doing anything. Yet. You’re the one who is going to present herself to me as a sign of good faith, of your consent. You’re going to show me that you trust me, that you accept my leadership. I fell in love with your intelligence and humor well before I started to admire your body.”

Still she didn’t move.

Time for Change by Pippa Greathouse

No one writes historical fiction like Pippa Greathouse and today she has a brand new release. You won’t want to miss this exciting new book – a dramatic time travel adventure – called Time for Change.

Bringing 21st century language to the 1800’s was not a good idea, as Sadie soon found out.

Blurb

Sadie Malinda Nelson, with her curly blond hair and light green eyes, was quite unprepared to awaken in a world two hundred years earlier, on the morning of the first New Madrid earthquake. Nothing looked familiar, until she looked up into the eyes of the man who rescued her from the storms and floods. His voice, when he said, “I have you,” for the first time, at once mesmerized and comforted her. She knew that voice. Didn’t she?

Aden Barrett was an estate owner, who had brought an unconscious Sadie to the house in his arms. Her dress was tremendously unladylike, and when he had to clap his hand over her mouth as she spoke for the first time, he realized this beautiful young woman had a mouth on her like a sailor at sea.

Sadie was terrified at the thought of having to try to adapt and was determined to get back home, in spite of leaving the family she’d grown to love. She knew Aden was trying to help her. Even so, she was determined not to learn the skills she needed to remain here. And Aden was determined that she would. Even if it meant he would need to discipline her in the process.

Publisher's Note: Time for Change is intended for adults only. Spankings and other sexual activities represented in the book are fantasies only, intended for adults. Nothing in this book should be interpreted as Blushing Books’ or the author’s advocating any non-consensual spanking activity or the spanking of minors.

Excerpt:

Eyes blazing, she took a deep breath, angry.

“You son of a bit—” A hand clapped over her mouth, stopping her from saying more. Her eyes widened as she saw the face above hers.

“Enough. Both of you! Bart, one last time, this is not your house. Watch your mouth.” Then he spoke to Sadie, his voice no less harsh. “And you, you little vixen. Where did you learn that kind of language? Either you speak appropriately in my house, or you will answer to me.”

Little Brides by Allison West

For age play fans, Allison West is back today with her book, Little Brides, Victorian Chronicles Book Two.

Blurb:

Eager young Clara is looking forward to her arranged marriage. She has been waiting all her life for the day when she will meet her husband. Her father has spent many months searching for the man worthy of his daughter’s hand.

Clara learns that her future husband, Francis, requires the young woman to undergo a medical examination to ensure that she has remained pure and that she is as intact as her reputation. Clara has never felt more disgraced as she is forced to bare all of herself to the doctor, where she undergoes far more than she ever anticipated. Silently, she swears to herself that she will move past the humiliation and never speak of what happened with the physician.

When Francis pays a visit to Clara’s father to propose additional terms to the marriage, wanting to bring along one of her maids so he will have a nanny in the house for Clara, the young bride-to-be is shocked to realize that he was the man giving her an examination. Was he really a doctor, or was he playing the part to ruin her reputation?

Little Brides is the second book in the Victorian Chronicles. It can be read as a stand-alone story but it does follow the first book in the series: A Proper Punishment.

Disclaimer: This book contains elements of age-play, power exchange, discipline, anal play, and graphic sexual content. If any of these offend you, please do not purchase.

Buy links: AmazonBlushing Books

Excerpt:

Francis had paid an unexpected visit to Clara’s parents’ home, wishing to speak with them about hiring a nanny for Clara. Though, in truth, he did not desire to use such words around her family. He wanted the chance to marry the young lady and worried that if he confessed of his desires, that they might not offer the young lady to him. Instead he would refer to the position as a maid, because it was quite common for wealthy families to have maids to help the girls with their chores and getting ready for proper events. 

He had not intended on visiting with Clara after the examination. In fact, he had planned on her discovering that he was the physician when they were to wed. It would have been quite a surprise, even for him, a man who despised surprises, but he thought it was in Clara’s best interest.  

“What are you doing here?” Clara asked, staring at him harshly. She stepped closer, examining him from head to toe. “Are you really a physician or was what you did some sick joke?” Clara folded her arms across her chest. 

 He was confident that she was angry with him and for valid reason, he hadn’t been forthcoming in who he was. Francis also hadn’t thought that if he was honest she would have been accepting of what he wanted to do, ensure that she was a virtuous bride. 

“I am a doctor,” Francis said. “You visited my home and the cottages for the sick and dying.” He quite often had at least one family hauled up in one of the buildings until they passed away. It made caring for them much easier when they were within a few days or weeks of their last dying breath. 

“You lied to me!” Clara shouted as she stomped across the floor, coming to approach him. 

He wasn’t sure whether she had it in her to hit him or only scream at him. Either way he was prepared for whatever anger she unleashed. Francis did not deny that it was probably warranted. It wasn’t that he intended to betray her, only keep her from second guessing the decision of their marriage. 

“I did what was in your best interest,” Francis said. “I intended to marry you and have no reason not to.” He hoped that she would not give him a reason to turn her away. She was beautiful, strikingly so with her honey blonde hair and hazel eyes that twinkled in the candelabra lighting. 

Clara huffed with anger, her teeth clenched tight and her hands balled into fists. “You violated me!” 

“Excuse me?” George asked, interrupting the tiff between his daughter and Francis. “Would someone please clarify what exactly is going on here?” 

Interview with Allison West

Is this your first series?

Writing as Allison West, this is the first series that I’ve done. However, I’ve written a young adult series that was three books.

How many books will be in the Victorian Chronicles series?

Right now there are only two books. I hope to write more, but I haven’t planned anything further.

Favorite book?

I absolutely loved The Fault in Our Stars by John Green.

Favorite TV shows?

The 100, 13 Reasons Why, The Handmaid’s Tale

What makes a good story?

Characters with a solid backstory, a believable world –whether it’s historical, fantasy, science fiction or contemporary it has to be based on enough truth to seem real, a strong story arc, and a romance that is believable. I enjoy reading romances that aren’t just throw the characters together and let them make out. Obstacles and flawed characters are more genuine and real, they’re like us.

Tell us a crazy story about your life.

I recently got married and the week of the wedding, my fiancé was hospitalized in isolation for C-Diff. We weren’t sure the wedding would happen. When it came down to the wedding day, everything was beautiful, the ceremony was amazing, but at the reception – I was sick. We spent our wedding night in the ER and missed our first dance and reception. Talk about a crazy night.

Macie's War by Pippa Greathouse

Get ready to one-click: Pippa Greathouse’s latest book Macie’s War has just arrived on the shelves at Amazon. I’ve had a sneak peek at it and highly recommend it as perfect reading for a holiday weekend, or any time you want action-packed romance.

The Major and the spy. He was responsible for fighting for freedom. She was suspected of putting it at risk.

Blurb:

When Macie Welles followed her aunt’s wishes in intercepting a letter to General Howe, in January of 1778, she barely made it back alive. And she had no idea she would be captured by one of General Washington’s most fierce and trusted men, Captain and soon-to-be Major – Jake Wilde. When she was caught, a few days later, rummaging through the captain’s saddlebags, she had no idea her whole life was about to change.

Captain Wilde, forced to take her into his tent to strip her and search her, had no idea that, as he looked down into the pleading eyes of this dark eyed, golden haired, beautiful girl, she was about to steal his heart. Was she truly a spy? Could he possibly save her from the fate that awaited her now? Was it too late?

Publisher's Disclaimer: Macie’s War is a sweet love story, with elements of stern, domestic discipline. If this offends you, please do not purchase the book.

Buy link: Amazon

Excerpt:

“What do you think I should do about that?”

She met his eyes, her own dark and wide. Her mouth trembled slightly. “I…do not know, sir.”

“Do you not, Macie? I believe you do know. Can I just let it go, in hopes that you will not swear again?”

“Yes?” her eyes met his, hopefully. “Please, sir? I shall be more careful, I promise.”

He shook his head, tilting her chin upward. “No, Macie Elizabeth. It would not be in your best interests for me to do that.”

She was trembling all over, now. “Please do not spank me, sir!”

“And if I let you get by with it this time, it will happen again. And again. I believe I know you well enough to depend on that.”  He turned her and began to pull her across his lap, guiding her face down. “I want you to think about this, Macie, as I punish you. I do not expect you to be completely still, but I do expect you to try. I am more concerned that you remember this, and learn from it. Do you understand?”

A sob escaped. “Yes sir.”  She gasped as he lifted her skirts up above her waist, and tugged at the ribbon that tied her pantaloons, and cried out as he lowered them.

More about the author:

Pippa Greathouse has been writing since the fifth grade, after each student was given an assignment to read aloud a story to the class of her their writing.  One horrified teacher later and a class of students who thought the horror story was “cool,” and she was hooked.

Since then, the writing has continued.   She now is an author for Blushing Books, and still loves what she does. Her favorite genre is historical fiction romances, where men are “strong, Alpha men” and their feisty ladies who are in need of the discipline they are sure to provide. And historical fiction is perfect for that!

She has two supportive and fantastic children, and is married to the love of her life, who is her very own “Alpha hero” and her biggest fan.

My Capricious Cowgirl by Maggie Ryan

The unsinkable Maggie Ryan is here today with her book My Capricious Cowgirl (Willamette Wives book 4).

Out of destruction comes hope; out of silence comes profound love.

Blurb:

Matthew Stone is a rancher who finds his greatest pleasure in working in the great outdoors, doing his part in building the Rose Ranch in the Oregon territory. He has watched his friends wed, and accepts their teasing about his confirmed bachelorhood. All that changes the day he is out repairing fences and looks up to see a horse jumping the railing, aware of how dangerous that is, as the last fence drops away. His warning does nothing to stop the rider, and a scream has him racing down the cliff, expecting to find the worst. What he finds instead is a small boy, clinging to a boulder while the river attempts to pull him away.

Sally Jefferson has just arrived in a strange place, and her young son Davy is the only person she knows there. Devastation and heartache have followed them as they braved the Oregon Trail, and she fears that, after surviving over two-thousand miles, she won't survive another moment when Davy's life is threatened.

The moment Matthew and Sally meet is like an echo of the storm that drove her from her home, as lightning seems to strike between them.

Matthew never expected to fall in love. Now he finds himself head over heels not only for Sally, but for a boy who doesn't speak and yet has stolen his heart.

Will Matthew be able to convince Sally that life can begin again? Will the fact that his very touch ignites her soul be enough to allow her to accept not only his love, but his discipline?

My Capricious Cowgirl is the fourth book in the Willamette Wives series about a group of pioneers who are building their dreams together and sharing in both the burdens and the joys. They are far more than friends… they are a family. Though this is the fourth book, it can be read as a standalone.

Publisher's Note: My Capricious Cowgirl contains explicit sexual content, including spanking and anal play. If any of these offend you, please do not purchase this book.

Excerpt:

“Tell me why you are going to get a spanking.”

“You… you know why.” She had to clear her throat after the first word because it felt like it was beginning to close now that the time was here.

“You’ll always tell me anyway,” Matthew said. “There will never be a misunderstanding about what has earned you a trip over my lap.”

“But… it’s silly…”

“It’s necessary,” he corrected.

She shifted on her feet. Why did the question embarrass her so? And why did his voice, so calm, so deep have her bloomers dampening?

“Sally, answer the question. Why are you standing here, about to have your drawers lowered and your skirts lifted? Why am I going to spank your bare bottom until it is hot and hurtful?”

Oh God, she… she couldn’t even think straight and yet she managed to squeak out a response. “I was just scared!”

“You aren’t being spanked because you were scared, Sally. We both know that. If I have to list the reasons you were naughty, then I will extract an additional payment for my efforts. That payment will be extracted from your heinie with extra strokes. Would you like to try again?”

Swallowing hard, she closed her eyes but only briefly for the moment her lids shut, all she saw was herself, bare bottomed over his lap. “I yelled at both you and Davy. I-I accused you of awful things. I called you stup… I-I said some bad words.”

“Very naughty words,” he said and she had no choice but to nod.

“That’s right. You didn’t accept my repeated apologies, didn’t calm when I asked you to, didn’t speak to me as one adult to another with respect. Instead, you threw a tantrum, insulted my intelligence and spewed filth from the very mouth that I so love to kiss.”

Put in that context, she felt just awful, and yet she couldn’t deny the validity of his summary. “I-I really am sorry.”

“I’m very glad to hear that. All right, let’s make sure you will remember that you are.” He gave her hands a squeeze and then released them. “Remove your drawers, lift your skirt and put yourself over my knee.”

Her eyes flew wide. This wouldn’t be her first spanking but never in her life had she been instructed to… to actually not only bare herself but to place herself in position. No, the few times she’d pushed Tanner too far, he’d pull her down, lift her dress and pop her backside a few times. She could count on one hand the number of times he’d given her a bare bottom spanking and every single one of them had been only because she’d already been dressed in her nightgown!

“Sally, do you need me to repeat my instructions?”

“No… no, I just…”

“When you are being punished, you’ll answer with ‘no, sir’ or ‘yes, sir’.”

“Oh, yes, sir.”

“Yes you need a reminder?”

“What? Oh, no… I mean, no, sir…”

“Then please proceed.”

Feeling her face begin to burn, wishing it was night, that her shame wouldn’t be illuminated by the sun, she finally reached beneath her skirts and fumbled with the ribbon of her bloomers. Pausing, she looked at him. “Um, I wear the… the split crotch style. There’s really no need to…”

“Remove them, please, and hand them to me.”

She gave the ribbon a tug and took a deep breath, starting their descent with a gentle tug of her fingers at her waistband, the fabric fluttering down her legs to puddle at her feet. She didn’t even realize she’d accepted his hand for balance as she lifted first one foot and then the other until he released her hand. Bending down, she picked up the white cotton and stood, her face aflame.

“Fold them, please. You won’t be needing them for a while.”

What did that mean? Of course she’d be needing them! Deciding not to voice that thought, she carefully folded the intimate garment, praying the folds would cover the dampness she could feel in the fabric. Once the bloomers were folded as small as possible, she had no choice but to place them in his outstretched hand.

“Thank you, now lift your skirt.”

More about Maggie Ryan, in her own words:

A USA Today and #1 international best selling author, I have been writing stories as long as I can remember. I enjoy writing both contemporary erotica as well as historical books set in ages past. I love developing characters that are able to tell their own stories. My heroines are multi-faceted women who are strong, intelligent and capable in their own right but find a deep need to share their lives with those strong, sexy and dominant alpha males that capture their hearts. My heroes recognize the gift of submission for the gift it is, loving and protecting the women that offer that gift. I enjoy sweet, romantic stories with just a taste of domestic discipline as well as one that explore the harsher D/S lifestyle. I also enjoy writing age-play stories set both in Victorian era where women didn't have a great deal of power in their lives as well as in today's present time where women still find their happiness is greatly enhanced in offering the gift of submission. My hope is that you settle back in your favorite chair and allow my books to entertain you and let you escape into another world.

Please feel free to contact me at: maggie.ryan.writes@gmail.com as I'd love to hear from you.

I'd appreciate it if you'd leave a review on Amazon as well as reviews not only help inform other potential readers about books that you have enjoyed, they serve to help me strive to become a better writer. I so appreciate every reader and wish you Happy Reading!

Cajun Charmer by Ruby Caine

I love the name of Ruby Caine’s latest book – Cajun Charmer. There’s a lot of heat in the restaurant called Katrina’s Aftermath and only some it is coming from the kitchen.

His little Cajun was a spitfire. Will he be able to tame her?

Blurb: Jenny is tired of being treated like a little sister; Jackson wants her to stop acting like a brat. Jenny didn’t see herself as hot tempered. The man she dumped hot gumbo on… and the one she pushed overboard didn’t agree. Of course, her boyfriend would take their side. Men!

Welcome to Katrina's Aftermath, a restaurant started after the disastrous hurricane, a symbol of the dedicated people of the region, who rebuilt after others predicted it could not be done.

Jenny Boudreaux's brother is co-owner of Katrina's Aftermath. Thanks to the interference of his partner, Jackson Duval, Jenny ends up working there to help support herself and 'stay out of trouble'. The feisty Cajun doesn't take crap from any man, be it a rude costumer, old boyfriend or armed police officer. Jackson finds himself having to extract her from one mess after another.

Having loved her for several years, Jackson finds himself getting tired of waiting for his little Cajun Charmer to grow up. His friend Everrett fills him in on the virtues of Domestic Discipline.  If Jackson has to take Jenny in hand, so be it.

How will Jenny react to someone not afraid of taking her on? More importantly, who can she turn to for advice when she finds herself dating a man who does not think twice about spanking her behind?

Publishers note: Cajun Charmer contains elements of spanking of adult women and sexual scenes.  If any of these themes offend you, please do not purchase

Excerpt:

"I am pretty sure Jackson promised he would track me down today so he could beat me."

“Jackson would never beat you. You will survive a small spanking. I'm living proof. " Mary Elizabeth sighed, relieved her friend was not in any real danger, at least not the lasting kind. She understood the dread Jennifer was going through, but hiding would never solve her problems. It was better to face Jackson than to aggravate him even more. "I thought he spanked you last night, after the wedding."

Hands on her full hips, Jenny looked stunned. "You knew he was planning to beat me when he hauled me out of there last night? A little warning might have been nice!"

Cinderella's Lawman by Pippa Greathouse

Pippa Greathouse is back today with Cinderella’s Lawman book 3 in The Strasburg Chronicles. This book is selling fast and collecting great reviews. Here’s why:

He gave her an ultimatum: Be obedient or face the consequences.

Blurb Feisty little schoolteacher, Cinderella Barton, is quite tired of Deputy Henson Andrews telling her what to do. She came to Strasburg to take her first teaching position, and he begins lecturing her the first week, despite her efforts to ignore him. She moves from one boarding home to another, and at the end of the school year, she is forced to move into "Lady Angelica's Home Away from Home for Ladies," in the middle of the night for safety. Once there, she finally feels safe for the first time in months.

Henson becomes more and more determined that she will not ignore him any longer, especially when it comes to his efforts to keep her safe. It irritates him no end when she manages to put herself in harm's way. When she completely disregards his orders - with a bear in the area - and someone shoots at her through the window of the schoolroom after he ordered to stay away from it, his patience runs out. He finally decides to take her firmly in hand - and marry her - if he has to!

When one shooting becomes two and a kidnapping follows, Henson becomes even more determined to find out who was behind it. The main problem, however, is keeping his beautiful little wife obedient and safe. Keeping her safe - he is trying his best... but keeping her obedient? Henson begins to wonder just how many trips Cinderella will have to take across his knee before he will accomplish that task.

Publisher's Note: Cinderella’s Lawman contains mild sexual scenes and the discipline of an adult woman. Please do not purchase this book if this offends you.

Excerpt:

It had happened suddenly, and she gasped, beginning to fight, but was held fast, by his hand on her lower back.

“Henson! Release me—instantly—“

“Oh no, little missy. You have tried my patience all day long today, and I have had it with you. It is time that you learn I mean what I say. Do you understand me?”

He now was lifting her skirts and petticoats, and raising them upward

“Henson! Stop that—Henson, please!”

But in answer, he brought down a large hand, hard, on her bottom. Covered only with her pantaloons now, that had a split up the back, she squealed.

“Oh! Stop it!”

“I asked you a question, little missy. And I will keep this up until I get an answer.”

“Oh! No. Henson! Please—stop!” But his hand kept coming down. She was wiggling desperately, trying to move out of his grasp.

“Henson, I cannot handle this! Please!”

“I’m still waiting for my answer, Cinderella, and trust me, I can keep it up all day long.” His hand kept descending and she froze, over his lap.

“Cinderella?”

Still, she did not move.

“Talk to me, young lady.”

“Henson?”

“What?”

“I—I cannot remember the question…”  her voice was small now.

Five smacks later, he stared down at the wiggling little bottom that he held over his knee, finding himself terribly distracted. He wondered if he could remember it himself. 

More about the author:

Pippa Greathouse has been writing since the fifth grade, after each student was given an assignment to read aloud a story to the class of her their writing.  One horrified teacher later and a class of students who thought the horror story was “cool,” and she was hooked.

She is married, and has two fantastic children, who have grown and left the nest.

Since then, the writing has continued.   She now is an author for Blushing Books, and still loves what she does. Her favorite genre is writing historical fiction romances, where men are “strong, Alpha men” and their feisty ladies respond to that. And historical fiction is perfect for that! However, she also loves writing contemporary romantic fiction.
