A brisk caning #wipitup

My Victorian Romance is taking shape. I shared a little for last week’s Wipsters, so here is a little more of my current work in progress – a time travelling escapade for a curator in a museum.  Kelly has travelled back in time through a mirror to Victorian England. Seated in the library of an old house, she has discovered a journal hidden in a drawer. She just can’t stop … Read more…

A treatise on discipline #wipitup

It’s 2017 and a new book is progressing to completion. Welcome to WipitUp Wednesday, hosted at a new website and many thanks to Meredith O’Reilly for hosting the blog hop. Participants share their latest works in progress or newly published works across a range of erotic romance and spanking romance. I hope you’ll stop by and read a few more excerpts. Mine is at the start of as a yet … Read more…

Acceptance – #wipitup

Another week, another spell of editing and it’s rather slow progress.  Gradually creeping through To Own You and the life of submissive Gemma and her Dominant husband, Jason. Gemma is having to adapt to many things: marriage, submission and wealth, something she wishes her parents would understand.   Recounting her fruitless conversation to Jason in the restaurant, she remonstrated her frustration at her absent parent. Jason frowned. “You should admire … Read more…

White wedding? – #wipitup

Slow progress on editing my work in progress – the second in the Trust Me series with Gemma and Jason. To Own You begins with a wedding night… *** The shimmering ivory gown amused Jason on the wedding night as he carefully removed the gown. “Virginal white? Isn’t it somewhat untruthful, Mrs Lucas?” he uttered in her ear. Gemma giggled. “Very true, Mr Lucas, but who is a virgin these … Read more…

I’ve a firm hand – take my word for it #wipitup

Just a little more from my WIP – no title as yet. It’s a Sci-Fi romance and there’s quite a bit of tension between the two leads – Mason, the marshal and Jade, the fugitive he’s caught smuggling. *** “You’re a fugitive,” he repeated. “I have the authority to detain you and this vessel including its cargo.” She gaped. “Please. It’s medical supplies. Essentials. They’re needed.” “By rebels. Kalamar is … 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…

A picture tells a story #5 – something in the past

A different era – Victorian – for this week’s story prompt. A couple and there seems to be some tension perhaps or something about to be said or done. Without faces, it is down to body language to guess. I love their clothes – his are very neat and trim.  Her pearl necklace. The lightly applied rules: No more than 500 words, but as little as I like. It could … Read more…

A picture tells a story #4 – Wedding woes? #writingprompt

It’s a holiday here in the UK, as it is in the States.  A holiday is a special occasion and so is a wedding. When I spotted this picture I wondered – what is going on?  Can I make a story out of this. Still working on a few ideas. The challenge is fashioning it into just 500 words.     The lightly applied rules: No more than 500 words, … Read more…

A picture tells a story #3 – vintage postcard #flashfiction #writing prompt

For today’s writing prompt I’ve gone back in time and picked something different. Of course I don’t have to write a vintage tale or set it in the kitchen. The picture might represent the end of the story, not the beginning. Is it her pose or the folding of the arms that intrigues me? It could turn out to be  a threesome, or something else. Who knows. I’m still thinking … Read more…

What’s happening?

I’m approaching a new book release at the end of the week – Chosen by the Governor – and as  soon as I have the cover and blurb, I’ll share. His Lordship’s Mate is The Romance Reviews Top Pick and the review can be found here: Bound by her Promise, a Sci-Fi spanking romance set on a mining colony orbiting Jupiter, is available on Kindle Unlimited. I’m working towards producing … Read more…

Stymied by the blocks #amwriting

For an erotic author, writer’s blocks can be a double whammy. Settling down at the keyboard (or notepad, I’m old-fashioned), characters shout out to be heard. A plot weaves its way across the pages. There’s a journey and a destination. Writing is productive and the word count great. Until, I hit the road block with that scene which has to be written. The sex, the spankings, whatever. I stare blankly … Read more…

#Wipitup – Rules are rules

No cover or title for this Sci-Fi (more of an alternative reality) work in progress, but it’s creeping closer to completion.  Ursa, my rebellious heroine, has been given to Xane to work as his servant. By law she must wear a collar. *** Xane rested on the edge of the desk and fished out the collar from his pocket. “Now, Ursa. This is non-negotiable. You will wear your ID collar.” … Read more…

#WipitUp – a privilege, not a conquest

Another book is with the editor. Always some trepidation about what will come back! For now, I can share a little on WipitUp Wednesday. No title as yet. It’s a Sci-Fi spanking romance, but more of an alternative reality Sci-Fi, so no aliens with green blood or pointy ears. Ursa has been given to Xane. She’s his servant, sent in exchange for unpaid taxes and remains his until the community … Read more…

#WipItUp – it started with a bottle of red

I’ve a new book, Indulge Me, out next week, so this week’s WipItUp is an ideal chance to share a smattering of words from it. It’s the book I’ve been cooking for a while, and one that I’ve enjoyed researching the most. It rather stemmed from an unfortunate incident – my wedding anniversary. The man and I went out for a delicious meal and shared a bottle of ‘expensive’ red. I was … Read more…

The penultimate post is about You!

The A-Z Spanking Challenge is coming to an end. I’ve this and tomorrow’s post and then I shall ease back until my next book launch… more on that later in the week. Today my Y is You, my blog readers. How many you number, I’m not sure, although I have nearly 900 subscribers (let’s see if I can reach 1000 soon), there are many others who drop by or possibly subscribe … Read more…

What the…..?

What the …. I’ve got to do a W post!!!! Wobbly legs. Weak at the knees. Wicked thoughts. Wantonness unleashed. Words form. Writing begins. Wait for it… I’ve a work in progress! And it’s all about wine. For other participants in the A-Z Spanking Challenge visit Spanking Romance Reviews or our host, Celeste Jones Want to know more about my latest books and other extras, then sign up for my Newsletter! … Read more…

Hi, I’m Jaye

Hi, I’m Jaye. Of course, that’s not my real name. Like many erotica authors, I use a pen name, primarily to protect my identity as sadly not everyone is okay with this kind of sexy stuff. One day, Jaye might cease to be and it probably be because I’m chosen to retire her, but it also could be because I feel threatened and need to hide. Either way, it won’t be … Read more…

Erotica writing #SpankAtoZ

Today’s Spanking Challenge letter is E. Erotica or erotic romance? What exactly is the difference? I don’t think many really know since it isn’t applied uniformly by any publishing platform. The best difference I can devise is that if I took all the sex scenes out of an erotica book, what would be left would be so disjointed and insubstantial that nothing makes sense to the reader. On the other … Read more…

A kinky writer’s tool box

I guess all sorts come by this blog; some to read and explore, others a quick dip and I assume a few find themselves here by mistake. I don’t know. I only see stats. However, I expect there are few out there who are interested in writing, perhaps writing erotica, maybe kinky things. Here are a few helpful books if you are interested in finding out more about what’s involved. I wish … Read more…
