Trapped with the Cyborg ~ Cy-Ops Sci-fi Romance 4

Coming June 2016

The only thing more dangerous than a suicide mission is falling in love…

Amanda Mansfield has faced challenges in her life including the disapproval of her critical father and the near-fatal accident that ended a promising military career and resulted in her transformation to cyborg. Now a Cyber Operations field agent, she volunteers to lead the most dangerous Cy-Ops mission ever: infiltrating enemy territory to find the secret hideaway of a terrorist mastermind. The last thing she needs is an added complication.

Like him.  Sonny Masters.  Her partner. A streetwise former thug turned cyber operative with a lethal grin who doesn’t understand she’s in charge and does not require his protection. He’s everything she dislikes—and everything her body wants.

If they can keep their hands off each other long enough to complete the mission, they might just get out alive…

Trapped with the Cyborg (Cy-Ops Sci-fi Romance 4) is a standalone read.

♥ Important release information ~ early release price! ♥

I don’t have a specific date yet, but Trapped with the Cyborg will be released in mid to late June. I plan to offer significant discounted pricing for a limited time (2 or 3 days)  upon its release.

Dancing with a Dom by Katherine Deane #spanking #USAToday #Bestselling author

Dancing with a dom ebook cover_zpsxbdqyk3o

Today I have a special treat for you. I get to feature Katherine Deane’s Dancing with a Dom, which has been re-released as a single title after being published in the USA Today bestselling anthology Bound, Spanked & Loved (no longer in print).  If you love Dancing with Stars and spanking romances, you’ll LOVE Dancing with a  Dom.

The blurb:

To this day, I’m still not sure which is more embarrassing.

Being left by your husband who says you are fat, overbearing, and frigid in bed.

Or having to change partners midway through a season of televised dancing—because your partner can’t lift you.

Both hurt. A lot. The first made me want to curl up into a little ball and hibernate. Since I had plenty of fat to store away for the winter, it didn’t sound like a bad idea.

The second left me so angry, I waltzed the man through his own set of moves—straight up to the full mirror. Then I lifted him. Luckily, he didn’t get hurt. And I didn’t get sued.

But that’s how I ended up over the knee of the hottest man I have ever met.

After he spanked me, he became my new partner.

We danced.

NOTE: This novella originally appeared in the USA TODAY BESTSELLER Bound, Spanked and Loved: Fourteen Kinky Valentine’s Day Stories.

This story has been reedited. 10k words of hot new scenes!

An excerpt from Dancing with a Dom (NFSW)

Grabbing my tits, I thrust them out and against the black cotton of my tank top. I was wearing the special kind of tank with a light built-in shelf bra. Not great for support, but pretty damn great when you wanted to wiggle and flaunt what you had. I had gorgeous breasts. I had always known this. Perfectly shaped, well rounded, full. Swaying with each step I took. And the men loved it. They really were fucking me with their eyes. I was the one thing they could not get enough of, could not take their eyes off. It empowered me. It felt sexy. I felt beautiful. I loved the way they leaned forward, licking their lips, eyes wide, dilated. Their fists clenched against the seams of the jeans. I could see the rock-hard interest in all of them, except for John. Probably because the camera sat on his lap.

Men watching me.

Men loving my body.

I felt so in control, so wanton, so horny.

“Give me a dollar,” I said in a low, husky voice that didn’t sound like my own.

All three men instantly thrust bills at me. With a grin, I collapsed to all fours and took one in my mouth. Sitting on my heels, I rubbed the crisp, cool bill against my peaked nipples. Coarse, rough…like sandpaper. I was too sensitive and it hurt. But it hurt in a good way.

The music thumped faster, and I stood up, swaying, thrusting my pelvis as if fucking air. They liked that. I heard a loud groan, and an “Oh, yeah.” It turned me on. They were like putty in my hands.

Dancing with a Dom is free with Kindle Unlimited.

Is blogging dying? Say it ain’t so, Joe!

Is blogging dying out? Are people deserting their blogs for Instagram? For Facebook?

In updating my blogroll and scheduling a blog tour f I discovered a lot of inactive blogs. Some blogsI I visited had been removed, others hadn’t been updated in months, some in a year. I know quite a few authors who say they have given up blogging.

While my visits are still respectable, my traffic has decreased 40-50% over what it was a year or two ago. Now, I’m not writing about spanking as much (and spanking was always good for a few hits, excuse the pun), but I wonder…it is the subject matter…or just blogging?

What has been your experience? Do you still blog as much as you used to? Have you noticed a decrease in your traffic? Have you encountered inactive blogs?

Now on with this weekend excerpt from Captured by the Cyborg (Cy-Ops Sci-fi Romance 3).  After a “romantic” interlude in the observatory, Illumina runs out (She has a reason. You have to read the book to find out why). Dale had hoped  she would get over it. But alas… (we’re in her POV here).

Captured_600x900“Then, I won’t bother you anymore.” He ran a hand over his head, and she remembered how his cropped hair had bristled again her palm.  “Tell me one thing,” he said.

“What?”

“Your name.”

“M-my name? Illumina Smith.”

“Your real name.”

“T-that is my real name.”  

 His expression shuttered, and he assumed his place behind his desk in an obvious dismissal.

Captured by the Cyborg Description

Sometimes the biggest risk is to one’s heart….

reviewertoppick2 (1)An ex-Cyber Operations field agent, Dale Homme has kissed danger and betrayal more times than he cares to count. Now he runs a clandestine factory beneath the surface of the moon Deceptio, where confidentiality and security matter more than anything. When a beautiful young woman arrives seeking a job, Dale knows within minutes she’s lying. Everything about her is false: her past, the people she claims to know, her reason for being on Deceptio. Illumina Smith? Even her name is an alias.

Logic says send her packing. His gut says she’s in trouble. She needs him. So he’ll do anything to keep her safe….even if it means keeping her captive.

Spotlight: Finding Love at the Trail’s End by Leigh Smith #spanking #SunnyGirl

trailsend_3d_360pk

Today’s guest is Leigh “Sunny Girl” Smith with an excerpt from her newest spanking romance, Finding Love at the Trail’s End.

Book Description

Lily Rose Cochrane grew up the spoiled daughter of a prosperous midwestern couple. That is until she was fifteen.  Then her life changed dramatically.  Her mother passed, and her father turned to the bottle leaving her to pick up the pieces.

Feeling the weight of too many burdens placed on her young shoulders, she is looking for a way out.  She thinks she may have found it in Johnny Billings.  Johnny Billings, a scout for a wagon train, is smitten with her and Lily tries convincing him to take her with him when he leaves on the next journey. He’s not ready to make a commitment to a prickly spoiled girl who has his head spinning, but Lily is determined to get out of Sweet Grass and to find a way to get on the wagon train.

What follows is the story of young love, loss and finding love again.

trailsend_150An excerpt from Finding Love at the Trail’s End

“I’m John Billings.” He extended his hand to the man.  “I’m here to call on Miss Lily Rose Cochrane.”  The man ignored his hand and was about to close the door in his face when Lily Rose arrived.

“It’s okay Pappa.  Mr. Billings invited me to dinner over at the hotel, and I’m going.” She started out the door.

“You’re too young to go out with a young man without a chaperone.  You don’t have my permission, and I won’t allow it.”

“Pappa, I’m not too young to go into the saloon and escort you home when you’re too drunk to make it on your own” She hissed at him. She wanted to embarrass him the way he was embarrassing her.  “It’s still daylight, and we’re only going to the hotel.”

“No, you’re not,” he said and tried to pull her back inside.  Lily Rose jerked herself out of his grasp and continued out the door. She looped her arm into Johnny’s and started to walk off.

Johnny stood firm.  “Miss Cochrane, we’re not goin’ without your father’s permission.”  He turned toward her father,  “Mr. Cochrane, I would like the pleasure of your daughter’s company at dinner.  Since you don’t feel comfortable with her accompanyin’me unescorted, perhaps you would like to join us?”

Johnny watched as the color crept up Lily Rose’s neck.  He wasn’t sure if it was embarrassment or anger, but he was about to find out.  Her father, on the other hand, seemed shocked into silence.  When Mr. Cochrane finally found his voice, he acknowledged the invitation and accepted.

“This young man understands propriety,” he said to his daughter.

Lily Rose sent an evil look to her father.  “You’re  a great one to talk about propriety. You’re a drunk, and everyone in town knows it.  How dare you treat me like a child? You’ve turned over all your responsibilites to this child, and now you’re acting like a pompous ass.  Go find your bottle and drink yourself into your nightly stupor.”

Johnny watched Mr. Cochrane shrivel under the caustic barrage of his daughter’s words.

No matter the truth of the situation, he was appalled that Lily Rose would treat her father with such disrespect, especially in front of others.  She needed a damn good hidin’, and her mouth washed out with soap.

“You owe your father an apology.”

“Not a chance in hell.  Shall we go?”

“To coin your phrase, not a chance in hell.  You don’t need dinner, you need a soaped mouth and a trip to the woodshed.  If I were your father or your husband, that’s what you would be getting’.”

“Well, it’s a good thing you’re neither.” She raised her hand to slap his face.  He grabbed her wrist.

“I would think twice about that Ms. Cochrane, or you just might get what you so richly deserve.

“The hell with you, Mr. High and Mighty Billings” and she raised her hand again.  Her hand almost reached his cheek when she found herself hauled over his hip getting her bottom spanked.  Her dress and petticoats didn’t provide much protection from his heavy hand. He rained down spank after spank in a pattern that would leave her bottom sore for a bit. The louder she wailed, the harder he spanked.  She was raising such a fuss that people began running out to see what was causing the commotion.  When they realized it was just Lily Rose Cochrane getting spanked, applause broke out.

Johnny finally released her.  Her bonnet was all askew, and her tear streaked face was probably as red as her bottom.  She picked up her skirts and ran into the store, slamming the door behind her.  The crowd kept applauding and saying things like  “ she had that coming,” or “didn’t  happen often enough.”

The throng started to disburse as Johnny stood there wondering what to do. He rang the bell – waited and then rang the bell again.  There still was no response.  Turning the handle, the door swung open. To prevent anyone else from coming in, he closed and locked the door behind him, and he walked through the curtain to the back of the shop.  There, on sacks of flour stacked on the floor,  Lily Rose sat whimpering.

She looked so forlorn, he went towards her thinking she needed some cuddling.  She looked up and when she saw it was him, yelled at him to get out.

“I only want to apologize, but I’m not really sorry.  I warned you and you didn’t listen.”

“Get out, I never want to see you again,” and she chucked an apple at him, barely missing his head.  He wasn’t a fool and left before she threw something else at him.

Educating His Bride #Free with #KindleUnlimited #historical #romance #spanking

EducatingHisBride_600x900

Educating His Bride is now free with Kindle Unlimited.

Amazon US | Amazon UK |  Amazon CA

Educating His Bride is a short historical erotic romance set in the 1950s. It’s a coming of age story about a college coed who marries her much more sexually-experienced (and kinky) professor. Originally published in the anthology Correcting the Coeds, it’s now available as a single title.

Educating His Bride description

From college coed to professor’s naughty bride…

It’s the 1950s. Never much interested in her studies, Margaret Atwater attends college hoping to graduate with an Mrs. degree instead of a bachelor’s. When she catches the eye of English Professor Henry Thurston, she’s thrilled to marry him, drop out of school, and begin a new life as a married woman and faculty wife. However, Henry is a kinky man who has much to teach his eager young bride—in, and out, of the bedroom. As Mrs. Henry Thurston, Margaret’s sexual education has just begun.

Warning: Educating His Bride is a humorous, light romance that contains spanking, exhibitionism and the use of sex toys. It is as historically accurate as I could make it. If humor, sexually explicit material or historical accuracy offends you, please don’t buy this book.

#8Sunday: A vulnerability revealed…from Captured with the Cyborg

Captured_600x900

Last week, Dale takes Illumina to his secret observatory on the moon Deceptio. One thing leads to another, and they end up rubbing parts. In this scene, the post-coital cuddling is cut short…

“The wound still pains you, doesn’t it?” he asked.

“It’s not so bad.” She dismissed the injury but tensed like a board.

He recalled her stiff walk, her avoidance of the missionary position, how she perched on a chair edge never leaning against it.

Cybermed had achieved great strides in pain management. Doctors there might be able to alleviate her discomfort. “There are pain treatments—”

“I don’t want to talk about this.”

Illumina couldn’t have guessed how well he could see in the dark or she would have averted her backside. When she scrambled for her robe, he assessed the damage.

Captured by the Cyborg Description

Sometimes the biggest risk is to one’s heart….

#SatSpanks: A mail order surprise she did not expect…

All Romance | Barnes & Noble

Henry and Margaret are enjoying a before-dinner cocktail when he opens a mail order package. Margaret is a bit confused by the contents:

“Why would you want marbles attached to a string?” she asked. Why would a grown man play with marbles anyway?

“They’re not marbles, they’re Burmese balls, and they’re not for me, they’re for you.”

“What do I do with them?” It was sweet of him to buy her a present, but she didn’t see herself rolling two Burmese balls back and forth on the floor.

Henry looked at her. “They’re also called Venus or Ben Wa balls.”

“I don’t know what that is.” She shook her head and took a drink of her cocktail.

“You insert them in your pussy, and they stimulate you.”

Margaret spewed rum and Coke across the table.
