Dungeon Crawl – a Little Training

Welcome again to this week’s Dungeon Crawl! Training a submissive – something many might fantasise about perhaps?  I do 🙂 When I wrote Trust Me to Know You, I didn’t want to write about a naive or innocent young woman who meets a Dominant and begins a relationship where he ‘trains’ her to be his submissive.  Gemma comes into the story having been in numerous relationships with different kinds of … Read more…

Monday Morsel – Plotting

This morsel continues from last week’s and comes from my current WIP, we’re still aboard the luxury yacht Sublime, cruising the southern coast of Spain and Jason is scheming. Having instructed Gemma to head below to their sumptuous stateroom, she plays a little hard to get… ***** “I want to swim,” stated Gemma as they moved away from the Spanish coast towards Africa. Jason put down the binoculars. “That should … Read more…

Saturday Spankings – Waiting

Hello again! A snippet from Trust Me to Keep You – the third of the Trust Me series. Though the Gemma and Jason keep their D/s mainly to the bedroom or fixed times, they are innate in their desires to be Dominant and submissive. It seeps into their daily lives and gradually influences their marriage. Gemma has become lax in her housekeeping duties. Her husband Jason doesn’t like mess and … Read more…

Thursday's Goodread – The Dark Side

Sometimes it is the cover that catches my eye.  Something which grabs and tempts me to peep inside. Do I mean some salacious handcuffs, or bared chested bodies or perhaps a grey tie? No. It is a musical instrument. Stick that on any cover and I’m intrigued. (I love books with musical influences). Naturally, based on this, I had to Ashe Barker’s Darkening, the first part of her Dark Side trilogy. … Read more…

Dungeon Crawl – His Lair

Exciting – a new blog hop brought to you by Romancing the Kink. Somewhere to dally on a Wednesday and hopefully I can share some excerpts from my BDSM series – Trust Me and the next trilogy, which is my current work in progress – Sublime Trust. Since this is a dungeon crawl, it would be seem appropriate to introduce the dungeon. Jason is wealthy – lucky man – and has … Read more…

Monday Morsel – Being Watched.

Would you want to be watched?  In the midst of something intimate, maybe sexual, possibly humiliating, like a spanking?  Imagine how tough that must be if one half of the relationship is thrilled by the concept and the other has a deep seated dislike of being an exhibit.  Most couples, vanilla or kinky, keep their private lives hidden from view, but there are those who like to scene in public … Read more…

Monday Morsel – Preparations for a Cruise

I’m really hoping Spring is around the corner.  With the new season comes renewal and I’m hoping to rekindle the story of Jason and Gemma in a new trilogy. The first book tells of a cruise across the breadth of the Mediterranean Sea on a luxury yacht. Jason and his wife will have three weeks to explore the boundaries of their D/s relationship and perhaps take them further than ever … Read more…

Saturday Spankings – Seduced

Hello Saturday hoppers! Sometimes it isn’t even necessary to do a spanking.  Sometimes describing one is sufficient to recharge the passions.  Another snippet from Taught to Serve – a little seductive discussion following Casey’s latest slip-up…… ****** Casey visibly sighed with relief. “You’re not going to spank me?” she said with trepidation. “You say that as something you wish for,” he said. Her eyes widened a fraction. “No, of course … Read more…

Thursday's Good Read – Humbled

I’m quite partial to a historical novel. Medieval and Renaissance are two of my favourite periods, as is Victorian seen through eyes of writers such as Wilkie Collins and Charles Dickens. I especially like Dicken’s Tale of Two Cities. Set during the French Revolution, not Dicken’s usual time period,  it is a story of self-sacrifice at a time of social upheaval. Which brings me to Renee Rose’s spanking romance Humbled. … Read more…

Saturday Spankings – a game of pool

Saturday Spankings has had its limits lifted from 8 sentences to 2000 words. I decided I would take the opportunity to have an excerpt from the third book in the Trust Me series – Trust Me to Keep You. Gemma and her Dominant husband Jason have visitors: John, Gemma’s brother, and his girlfriend, Andrea. The couple have just discovered that Gemma and Jason are in an unusual relationship. Unsure of … Read more…

What makes a good read?

I’m not a great one for writing reviews, not just books, anything. It is the star system I particularly loath. I can understand its purpose, just not how it can be fairly applied. Without guidelines, it becomes a subjective box tick, almost a polarised like or dislike with a vague differentiation in the middle. Ask me any day of the week for my top ten list of books, films or … Read more…

The birch – then and now

Birching used to be a very traditional judicial punishment in the UK, and across Europe. It was primarily used on young male offenders and involved the police or prison services. The last bastion of the birch, after everywhere else had banned it, was the Isle of Man (Island in the Irish Sea). I remember as a child the news reports as the camps for and against the use of the … Read more…

Saturday Spankings – Out in the woods

This week I’ve picked a passage from Trust Me to Own You. The idea of being spanked outside, in the open air and the risk of being spied upon, can add an extra thrill or maybe it might humiliate further. Submissive wife Gemma has had a tough week finding out about her limits while on vacation with her husband in New York.  Taking a break from the city, they head … Read more…

Short on word count, long on fun

Between writing novels, I dip into writing short stories.  Some bonus stories for the Trust Me books, others are one off moments of fancy. You might notice I have a thing for interfering with fairy tales, giving them a little twist and nudge to accommodate a bit of spanking. I’ve added another to my Fairy Tales Retold collection and added a few others under short stories. Princess and the Bed … Read more…

Satspanks – A Beastly Spanking.

Hello and welcome to another Saturday Spankings! Following on from last weeks fairy tale theme, I’ve split my 8 sentences across two stories. The first is a little snippet from a new short story under my Fairy Tales Retold section of the sidebar : A Beastly Spanking. Belle has run off to be with her father having promised to stay with the beast.  She returns and the beast decides to … Read more…

Satspanks – Taming Rapunzel

I have written a few fairy tales. I blame Disney. They create these films which kind of lend themselves to the fantasy world of spanking. Since Princesses have gained more attitude and independence, it just means the Prince has to work harder. This snippet is from Rapunzel’s Hairbrush.  Prince Charming has just climbed up the enormous tower and things are not going as he expected when faced with a rather … Read more…

Fairy Tales Retold

I’ve had tucked away a couple of spanking stories and I’ve added them to my collection on the sidebar under a new menu – Fairy Tales Retold. I hope you enjoy my new versions of some classic fairy tales. Rapunzel’s Hairbrush – A light-hearted twist on Tangled. The Glass Slipper and the Cane – or maybe it should be called Cinder’s Revenge 🙂 Now if there are any other fairy … Read more…

Spanking relief – Satspanks

This week’s Satspanks offering comes from the first book in my Trust Me series – Trust Me to Know You.  A story about a submissive woman recovering from a traumatic past.  She has discovered her lover is not quite what he appeared when she first met him and now their relationship is moving into new territory. There are different kinds of spankings and this snippet is about spanking for stress … Read more…
