Resurrection – Ashe Barker – The past is only a heartbeat away.

Ashe’s latest book, Resurrection, is for everyone who loves erotic romances with great themes and real history. Ashe explains a little about her book… I’ve always loved time travel romances and this is the second one I’ve written. In Resurrection the heroine comes forward in time and has to adapt to twenty first century life – a far cry from the hardships of medieval England. I’ve often wondered what would come … Read more…

An Appropriate Gentleman – #satspanks

I didn’t plan on writing a sequel to His Lordship’s Mate, but when a fellow author mentioned a potential couple in the book, I took the bait and turned it into The Highlander’s Mate. The books are paired, rather than a series, and can be read independently. In the opening of The Highlander’s Mate, Claire and Felix Hughes are already courting. Their story actually began in His Lordship’s Mate, when they … Read more…

I’m in no hurry – #satspanks

Claire is in trouble. Due to her actions, Felix’s secret is at risk of exposure and she’s facing the consequences. *** He remained a few feet away from her, waiting, his lips set firmly together. She fumbled a little with the fastenings of her gown before stepping out of it. The petticoats, bodice, and shift lay beneath—the layers of warmth needed for the cold climate, except in the base of … Read more…

Good lass – #satspanks

Last week I shared the beginning of a spanking – here’s the end of it. *** The last whack met the crease of her thighs and she yelped, having correctly anticipated he’d given her the final blow with a measure of force. Somehow, she’d survived the tawse. “Four. Good lass.” She lay still, relaxing her grip on the table. What now? How could she convince him she could endure more than … Read more…

The Scottish implement – an introduction to the tawse

tawse

I might have cheated with one of the scenes in my latest release. The Highlander’s Mate is set in 1815 in the Scottish Highlands and I wrote a spanking scene using an implement that originated in Scotland: the tawse (pronounced tours). I’m not entirely sure when it was invented but it might have been later than the setting for my book. The leather tawse was supposedly invented by a Scot for … Read more…

The beast unleashed – #mysexysaturday #saturday7

My Sexy Saturday is hosting the Sexy Beast blog hop today. Wow, that couldn’t come at a better time for me as I release my latest shapeshifter book, The Highlander’s Mate, which is set in the Highlands of Scotland during the Regency period. This is part of the opening prologue with Felix, the Laird of Garve, realising he’s allowed the woman in his life to slip out of his fingers and … Read more…

The Highlander’s Mate – #satspanks

Out this weekend, my latest historical spanking romance, The Highlander’s Mate, is set in the Highlands of Scotland during the Regency period and yes, there is a little paranormal twist too! For those who read His Lordship’s Mate, then you’ll will have already met Felix and Claire – this is their story and unfortunately for Claire, currently, it isn’t going exactly to plan. *** Over her shoulder, he could see … Read more…

Waiting for bed – #wipitup

  My Highland adventure is due out at the end of this week. To keep the heat factor up, I’m sharing a preview. Claire is travelling with her newly wedded husband and the excitement is getting to her. *** Now, riding on the waggon, her head drooped. Behind Claire’s back the buckboard had been covered with an awning and sides to provide shelter if it rained. Felix had also taken … Read more…

Do you quicken? #wipitup

So after last week’s WIPitUp excerpt, it seemed like Felix couldn’t wait for Claire. Fortunately, neither can she! Due out later this month – a paranormal historical set in the highlands of Scotland…. *** “Lie back.” Standing over her, his shadow cast across the bed, he continued to smile. “So beautiful.” He moved over her, nudging her legs apart and knelt between them. Bending over her, he lowered his mouth. … Read more…

The beast within – #wipitup

How long can he wait?  Felix needs all his self-control to hold off. A snippet from my current work in progress, which is provisionally called The Highlander’s Mate. The clue in the title, yes, it’s Scottish and it’s also Regency and Paranormal. Something for everyone! *** When she bared herself by removing the protective blanket, he almost glanced away. However, it was her gift to him—her body, unasked, unashamedly offered. … Read more…

Louise Taylor – Spanking the Heiress!

I’m delighted to welcome Louise Taylor, author of Victorian romances, to my blog.   Q) How did you dream up the dynamics of your characters? This is something that I agonise over, actually! I write historical romances, set in the Victorian era, which covers the majority of the nineteenth century. I strive for historical accuracy, but I am aware that women of that period were not encouraged to be independent … Read more…

A scoundrel – #wipitup

A super quick WipitUp post. I’m on vacation, close to Wales. However the work in progress I want share is based in the Highlands of Scotland. Claire has turned up unexpectedly at Felix’s castle, which is by a loch. He’s not pleased as he thought she was in England. Her clothes are still in transit and she’s woken up with nothing to wear and the housekeeper, Mary, on the prowl. … Read more…

The lass with no name – #wipitup

Time to share from my latest work in progress, which is in its final tidy up. A historical paranormal set in the Highlands of Scotland and it re-introduces two characters from His Lordship’s Mate. This is the opening…. *** To his relief, the persistent knocking on the outer door had subsided. Resting his feet on a footstool, he closed his eyes and dozed. The interlude was brief. The chamber door … Read more…

Pearl necklace – Victorian short story

500 word short story – Victorian romance with a twist. After a fraught week when this blog went a little haywire, I managed to conjure up my 500 story using the picture prompt.  Nothing like a formal Victorian courtship and this one isn’t starting off very well. *** “Miss Malone, did you or did you not call your sweet cousin a beastly mare?” She stared at his buttons, counting them … Read more…

Too far – #satspanks

Hello Saturday and it’s the spanking day of the week. Preparations are so important – the right tools and equipment – so in a medieval fishing hut, there isn’t much on offer. Edgar has to make the best of what he has, especially since Nadia has been causing trouble for him. *** “You went as far as disobeying me, which is far enough. Now,” he scanned the meagre accommodation that … Read more…

Feeling safe – #mysexysaturday #satspanks

Happy Easter!  It’s all about love and forgiveness. When things go awry, then it’s important to feel safe, too. The Stolen Bride, my latest historical romance, is the choice for this week’s snippet. Nadia has been left alone at a beach while Edgar goes hunting. Passing bandits have given her a scare and she’s hiding. *** “Nadia!” Edgar called for her once again with greater urgency. “Nadia.” She crawled out … Read more…

I’m welcoming Lee Savino to my blog today with her new release, which has already hit the top of the Western bestseller list.   Phoebe Wilson has had a hard life. On her own from a young age, and cursed with a club foot, she answers an ad to work for Scottish homesteader Calum MacDonnell, thinking to prove herself with work. What she doesn’t expect is a fierce mountain man, … Read more…

Not the slightest bit innocent – #satspanks

Where did this week go! I almost forgot to set this post up. A snippet from my latest release – The Stolen Bride – a medieval romance and I included my first double spanking – one bottom, two pair of hands. Prior to her marriage, Nadia has lied about her purity to her husband. Arnaud has not only decided he should punish her, but he’s also proposed Edgar, the young … Read more…
