After the spanking

Rob watched as she shuffled out of the room, her hand up her skirt as she frantically rubbed her bottom. As the door shut behind her, he turned to his friend and smiled. “I’m very pleased with how things are going.” “Yes, I can see,” said the grey haired man. “You’ve got a lovely girl, Rob. She’s definitely worth the effort.” A little teaser from my new book. Due out … Read more…

Trust Me to Keep You is now available on AllRomance in the following formats : mobi, ePub and PDF ****** He was sitting in an armchair reading the newspaper. Seeing Gemma walk into the room and grind to an abrupt halt, Jason tossed his newspaper on to the floor. “Surprised?” he asked without smiling at her. “I shouldn’t be really.  What about tomorrow?” Her hand remained on the door handle. “I … Read more…

Next book creeping closer

The third book in the Trust Me series is close to be publishing.  The cover is done and following a short break away from home, I should be back in November to finish off the final preparations. A little interlude from the book – a kiss.  Often under-rated as erotic foreplay.  I like the sensuality of two lips meeting and being a bridge for communicating intent : –   Kissing … 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…

The CEO’s wife

There are going to be some samplings of book three in the coming weeks…… Her situation has changed dramatically in a space of a year. Gemma is now wealthy, has a relatively new job and has recently returned from an intense week of submitting to Jason in their New York apartment.  Adapting to change is tricky, especially when so much has happened in a short space of time. Jason doesn’t … Read more…

The art of distraction

There will be a delay in the third book 🙁  I’m busy writing other books too and juggling many tasks about them. I can reveal a little more now and again. Below is an extract.  Lazy Gemma has been disciplined for keeping the house in a mess. Having been corrected, she brings a snack to Jason while they watch a film. Except, Jason is distracted by his Gemma…… ***** When … 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…

The order of events

I started out planning to write a trilogy, there may be more eventually, but I’m sticking to the first three for the moment. It is always assumed, when you write a story in parts, that they will read in order. However, eBooks are not neatly lined up on the shelf. People find one volume, but not necessarily the previous or the next.  I am hoping I have provided sufficient back … 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…

Transforming the characters

Does a Dominant have to be rich and successful? Well no. In fact they usually ordinary everyday people, in everyday jobs and blend in without being noticed. Yet my Dominant is a wealthy CEO. As a child I loved to write SciFi stories. The unbelievable could be made believable just because it is fantasy. If the characters need to travel to one end of the galaxy to other, they can; … Read more…

An excerpt and a decision

Another short excerpt from book 2  – Trust Me to Own You.  Gemma and Jason have been hosting a grand garden party and the guests have all left, the marquee is empty and Jason is feeling amorous. I’ve now put up three excerpts and I have a decision to make. For most eBook distributors, a free sample is offered –  usually the first 10-20% of the book. The sample may … Read more…

Another snippet from book two

Another little snippet from book 2 (Trust Me to Own You). A little forest spanking for Gemma and her Dominant.  She is living out a fantasy – isn’t that always fun?!  He isn’t so enthusiastic but what delights her can delight him too especially if he can draw out her lust for him. He watches her drift off and then…. Well that’s for the book. ****** Feeling the need to … Read more…

What happens next?

Revealing the next book in a series is tricky. Some, passing by and finding this blog, will want to know nothing, other’s might simply enjoy reading the excerpts and then there are those who have read the first and want to know more…..   I don’t want to reveal the story beyond what might be guessed or anticipated. The two lead characters are there and now there are others too. … Read more…

Discussing the limits

The genre of BDSM has become popular for romance readers, especially stories about Domination and submission. Things which were once taboo have become more acceptable to read about. When I developed my storyline for the series, I didn’t want my heroine to be inexperienced.  Many D/s books have the heroine as innocent or naive about their sexual awakening or for those who are sexually active, they are unaware or unsure … Read more…

Another snippet

I clicked publish and there it is on Smashwords! Next a tweak or two for Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing….. A little more to give away…. From Chapter 3.  Not their first meeting, but the one when he makes his intentions clear to her…. The conversation had maintained a serious nature to it all evening and it was not my normal style. I liked frivolity, gaiety and witticisms. I could do … Read more…

Tempted to know more?

She has to believe it will be different. A fresh start.  Will it be?  This is how it begins….. CHAPTER ONE I was in his bedroom, his fantastically colossal bedroom.  A floor to ceiling bay window showed off his ornamental garden, which was barely visible under the moonlight.  The emperor size bed had short wooden posts at each corner and white silk sheets. No duvet or quilt was necessary given the … Read more…
