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…

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…

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…

A little body warmth – #wipitup

Sharing another extract from my current work in progress, which is set in the Scottish Highlands during Regency times. Claire, an English woman with her heart set on marrying her admirer, has refused to return to England and secretly made her way back to Felix’s home by a Scottish loch. However, she didn’t quite make back and he has to rescue her from the cold. *** Arriving at Luichart Castle, he dismounted … 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…

What a fantastic sight – #wipitup

I’ve been absent from here for a few weeks while I work on a new project. It’s been a drawn out affair, slower than usual. I’m working on a contemporary paranormal tale with plenty of kinky scenes. Including this one where David takes Anna, his new submissive, into his dungeon. *** The door creaked open and he switched the light on. “Please kneel facing the corner, over there,” he pointed … Read more…

Responsible behaviour – #satspanks

Responsible drinking is not the theme of this week’s post. Oh, no, I wouldn’t lecture anyone. But there are times when somebody has to step in and make a point. Gethin, Ella’s secret husband, has hosted a small gathering. For Ella it hasn’t gone too well. Lady Matilda is a difficult guest and Ella can’t help herself. *** Ella uttered a feeble excuse about a headache and stormed out of … Read more…

Irresistible – #Satspanks

Happy New Year! It’s the beginning of 2016 and the opportunities to try out something new, to branch out and be adventurous. Don’t look back! At least not if you’ve just been spanked. A spanking clears the air and for Ella, the heroine of my spanking romance, His Lordship’s Mate, it’s the moment to make a decision. Gethin has given her one last chance to back out of marrying him. … Read more…

Top Spot

For a brief spell yesterday my latest book, His Lordship’s Mate, hit the #1 spot on Amazon’s Paranormal Erotica. It came as a lovely surprise when I checked into Amazon. Thank you to my readers.  Whether you’re a fan of Regency romances or shapeshifters, when I wrote this book I hoped to meet both audiences and merge them together. This feather painting sums up the book quite nicely. I won’t … Read more…

Fate – #WipItUp

It is the night before Christmas….well, two nights…. and therefore it is the last WipItUp of the year. Following on from last week and a little skip forward. Gethin, Lord Powell, having encountered Ella in the woods and heard how desperate her situation is, has made an offer to her father regarding his debt. It’s come in the nick of time – the bailiffs have arrived at Ella’s home. *** “Marry her,” … Read more…

Her last chance – #Satspanks

Hi to followers of Saturday Spankings!  Last week, Ella hadn’t packed in time for departing. Gethin, a man who has seen much in life, believes she needs to appreciate what he expects, and has tossed her over his knee for a good hard spanking – is there’s such a thing as a bad hard spanking 🙂 She’s been caterwauling, wriggling and now that she gets the message, he’s given her … Read more…

Finding the truth – #WipItUp

It’s WipItUp Wednesday and a chance to share a different encounter from last week’s excerpt. Ella, the heroine of my latest book, His Lordship’s Mate, has recently met a wolf in a forest. Nobody believed her, since wolves have not been seen in England for centuries, so naturally, she is shunned. Desperate to prove her story, she’s gone back to the woods to find proof. This time, she meets a … Read more…

Postcards and pamphlets – #MasturbationMonday

Welcome! It’s time for a little self-pleasure…   Poor Ella. She has very little idea about what a husband might expect from her.  She’s spent years reading, but now that her father is forcing them into destitution, she has to marry quickly. We think the idea of pornographic images as being a recent thing, but oh no, they’ve been about for a long time. On Greek vases and Indian temples. … Read more…

No turning back – #ScintillatingSunday #SexySnippets

It’s Sunday!  I’ve a chance to share my latest release, His Lordship’s Mate, in two hops  – Scintillating Sundays and Sexy Snippets. Ella has been chosen by Gethin. It’s his destiny to mate with her and he’s not one for the formalities of marriage or courtship. He’s driven by other forces, ones she’s yet to fully understand… *** “Gethin, please, I’m not sure…” she bleated. He rested his hand on … Read more…

Facing the beast – #WipItUp

After last week’s WipItUp, I was left with the impression a little more was wanted from the scene. Well, here it is, but from a different perspective. *** Shock at his unwarranted actions prevented the frightened Ella from crying out. As she sprawled on her back, DeLancy kicked her ankles apart and stood over her, his eyes gleaming bright and the sweat pouring down his brow. No tears would rescue … Read more…
