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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

Consequences – #Satspanks

For Saturday Spankings, a snippet from my latest release, His Lordship’s Mate, a Regency romp with plenty of spankings and a hero who’s not quite what he seems.   Ella, an independent young lady who lives with her drunken father, has been asked to be ready to leave at nine O’clock in the morning. She’s had a little lie in instead (so hard to resist isn’t it?). Now, when Gethin, … Read more…

New Release – His Lordship’s Mate

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…
