#DungeonCrawl & #SpankAtoZ – R

R is for Real-life Real-life spankings (though this post could apply to any aspect of BDSM) are not the same as fantasy. The flogger gets caught in the ceiling fan, the paddle falls apart mid-spank, the cane snaps, a kid’s voice can be heard through the bedroom door, your mother rings, the postman knocks…. Those are the practical elements. Then the emotions might go wrong – the mood isn’t established, the pain too … Read more…

#DungeonCrawl & #SpankAtoZ – K

K is for Kinky And just like last week, it is very apt for the Romancing the Kink’s Dungeon Crawl too. What about the word Kinky. It’s one of those words which when said, you can feel a slight blush forming on your face. It makes you smile saying it. Try saying it with a frown.  Sounds dreadful. There are the ‘kinky boots’ worn by fetishists. Crotch high, shiny and with … Read more…

Dungeon Crawl – Spanked in a Nightclub

It’s a Wednesday, which means it’s Dungeon Crawl time. Except… not a dungeon. It’s a nightclub and somebody is about to get spanked. It’s the late 1960s, in Liverpool, home of the Beatles and Leah has been warned about not getting up in time for work. She likes the clubs. Drinking late. Now she is about to face the consequences for being tardy. Rick, her driver, has brought her one morning … Read more…

Dungeon Crawl – The Toy Box

Welcome to this week’s Dungeon Crawl. Just an ordinary house this week. Except there is the toy box. Every kinky couple has a toy box somewhere hidden away, don’t they 🙂 *** He made the request to his wife one evening and she met his idea with resistance. She was busy tidying the boxes of toys in the breakfast room when he broached the subject with her. The picture books piled up on the … Read more…

Dungeon Crawl – Captured

Welcome to Romancing the Kink’s Dungeon Crawl. Back again. Picking up from last week, this is the third and final part of a particular dungeon visitation. Part one and part two are here. **** A cold draft crossed the expanse of the dungeon striking her bare flesh and in response, her exposed rump bristled with goose bumps. He was back. The door clicked shut behind him, the bolt slid across with a … Read more…

Dungeon Crawl – over the spanking bench

I quite enjoyed my little impromptu visit to the dungeon, so much so I decided to see what happened next… So if you want to see the start, go back a week to here. Don’t forget to visit all the other great bloggers participating in this hop! ***** He took a leisurely sip of his coffee, making a satisfactory purring noise, which pleased her greatly. Placing the mug on the … Read more…

Dungeon Crawl – Nervous?

Welcome!  This weeks dungeon crawl I’ve not chosen a passage from either published or unpublished works, but simply written a brief original story….. *** The wooden stairs creaked.  Each step, one after the other, groaned. Her three inch heels hardly made a sound as she stepped cautiously down. A hand held the rail, ensuring her steady pace did not falter. Descending always made her nervous. There could be no more than twenty steps, … Read more…

Dungeon Crawl – Waxed and Spanked

Saturday night, all dolled up in their finest and off for an evening in an exclusive nightclub. There is no dance floor or DJ, but there are rooms. Private rooms with particular furniture and equipment. Welcome to the Nightshade Club….. **** Gemma could see before her eyes a very fired up and keen master who wanted his submissive for more fun and play. Trembling hands rested on her thighs, something … Read more…

Dungeon Crawl – A Secret Room

Welcome to the crawl! A dungeon is just a room.  In this house it is a secret room, hidden and tucked away. The guests don’t know it is there.  When Gemma’s brother, John, comes to visit with his girlfriend, there is a confrontation and a revelation. Not everything is revealed to her brother, but Gemma is not coping very well with the truth being out. Their dungeon at least is … Read more…

Satspanks – The Verdict

Hello, and welcome to Saturday Spankings, the hop that brings you those all important eight sentences. Discipline comes in all shapes and forms.  Here is the aftermath of one and he wants to know how effective it has been. **** Jason took his time in the shower and dressed himself in jeans and polo shirt.  She stirred when he approached her.  Crouching by the bed and level with her face, … Read more…

Dungeon Crawl – Checking in

Another trip out and plenty to read! A spanking this week. The bedroom is the setting. He is fired up, she is struggling. What happens when things stray off course? Something happened in her past. She hasn’t told him everything. She doesn’t want to remember, but it is always there, the nightmares and fear, lurking in the background. In the midst of a scene, is Gemma about to freak out? … Read more…

Monday Morsel – His Instructions

Something different for this weeks morsel. Nothing from one of my books, this is a conversation between two people. A slightly one-sided conversation. He has a list of requirements, instructions, expectations… Her job is to listen. ***** “Let us go over the timetable, shall we?” Before him, kneeling on the floor, was a naked young woman. He had allowed her the additional comfort of a cushion beneath her knees. “Yes. … Read more…

The time and place

Everyone’s life is busy. Work, family, downtime when tiredness takes over and there are simply not enough hours in the day.  Scheduling that all important connection can be tricky and not always fit to the predetermined slots. Gemma and Jason have their weekend scenes, the time for her to submit to his will and be under his control.  What happens when the time and place are not matching the need? … Read more…

The dance

Is D/s always about discipline and punishments? No and for some, it plays no part in the dynamic whatsoever.  D/s is ultimately about power exchange. The willingness of the submissive to be under the control of the Dominant.  The abilities of the Dominant to look after their sub and feed the submissive’s need for dominance. When there are constraints, on time and location, the play can be intense and the … Read more…

Introducing the Dom

The third book – Trust Me to Keep You – continues the story of Jason and Gemma. In this volume, I shift the focus from time to time on to Jason.  So many BDSM books are told solely from the perspective of the submissive girlfriend / lover  and the Dominant is left in the dark. In this book I bring Jason out into the limelight a little more. He  still … Read more…

Facing the consequences

Fear.  Some times it is craved. The excitement and apprehension of facing something scary and unknown. Perhaps an exhilarating ride at the fairground, or watching a horror movie or may be the challenge of doing something for the first time – like abseiling. In BDSM, it is part of the anticipation, when a scene is about to begin.  If bound or gagged, it is the racing heartbeats. To be blindfolded, … Read more…

Maintaining the roles

How to maintain submission when perhaps the kink  is only infrequent or life is too busy to find the time? Many couples who are in a D/s relationship or may be a Domestic Discipline lifestyle, use maintenance to keep their roles in focus. Re-affirming submission through some form of ritual or in many cases – a spanking. Now my characters don’t have the opportunities all the time, but the Dominant … Read more…

Pushing the limits – excerpt

Another excerpt from book 2 Trust Me to Own You Punishments happen, there not always part of a D/s dynamic, but Jason is a disciplinarian…… ******* The journey back from Jason’s office was frosty in atmosphere and he appeared to remain in executive mode for the duration. Looking out the window, he seemed to be deep in thought and Gemma did not trouble him with questions.  Her skin was starting … Read more…
