Yes, it has spanking in it!

You can help!

As you may know, the first two books of the Breeder series were published by Loose Id. However, I self-published Warrior, and it is my first BIG indie venture (I re-released Unexpected Consequences last month, but other than the cover, everything was pretty much done.).

Here’s how you can help make Warrior a success:

  1. If you intend to buy Warrior, please buy it on release day or sooner thereafter. Early sales help rankings, which boosts visibility.
  2. Consider writing a review. It doesn’t have to be long.
  3. If you see a post from me on Facebook about Warrior, please share it. Your posts are great too!
  4. Remember, you can also share any blog post by clicking on the share buttons below.

#Saturday Spankings, #8Sunday: From Warrior…Danger hurtles toward her

Warrior coming Oct. 21!

Warrior coming Oct. 21!

If it’s Saturday, it’s three more days until the release of Warrior, the third book of the Breeder sci-fi romance trilogy. If it’s Sunday, then TWO days! Warrior will release on Tuesday, Oct. 21. I’ll have two prize drawings: one for $25 in chocolate, one for a $75 Amazon gift card. Get the contest details here. But on with the show…

Welcome to Saturday Spankings and Weekend Writing Warriors, two weekly blog hops in which authors present an eight-sentence excerpt from a work. Of course, I’m presenting a snippet from Warrior.

A quick update: Anika, our heroine, is on the run from arranged breeding.

A temblor shook the ground, and Anika whipped around to spy several large conveyances hurtling toward her. She stepped off the road to allow the caravan to pass, but the driver of the head vehicle emitted a piercing whistle and halted the convoy abreast of her. Two males—an alpha and a beta—drove each vehicle, except for the third, which was attended by a single beta. However, the cargo enclosed in portable cells drew her attention and evoked a frantic beat of fear. At least two dozen females, she estimated. About eight per conveyance.

Had her disguise failed? Had the convoy halted so she could be tossed into the cages with the others?

Wouldn’t you love to know what her “disguise” is?

Warrior blurb:

A female fighting for freedom.  A male armed with determination. Can they save their people?

As a despotic Qalin marches through Parseon intent on conquering every province, Commander Marlix pledges his sister to another Alpha to protect her. Desperate to decide her own fate, Anika flees and finds refuge with the guerilla resistance movement against Qalin. Marlix’s aide Urazi hunts her down to bring her home to fulfill her duty. But when love blossoms between them, and provinces fall to Qalin, Anika and Urazi realize home has ceased to exist, and they are all that stand between the people of Parseon and the end of the world.

Warrior, third in the Breeder series, can be read as a stand-alone.

Recommended Reads for October: from historical to sci-fi

My September reading list almost hit all the subgenres of spanking romance: historical, contemporary, and sci-fi. No aliens or cowboys though. Maybe next time.  But, if you’re looking for a good book this month, you can’t go wrong with any of these:

In the Palace of Lazar (sci-fi/fantasy spanking romance) by Alta Hensley – After the apocalypse, what’s a girl to do, but join a harem ruled by a family of brothers?

Corrected by the Colonel (historical spanking romance) by Celeste Jones – When you mistake a military man for a footman, your plans to marry up are bound to go downhill.

Last Dance for Cadence (Corbin’s Bend 8) (spanking romance) by Maren Smith – A  proud disabled woman discovers her submissive side when taken under the wing (and hand) of a sexy doctor.

A Simple Misunderstanding (Corbin’s Bend 7) (BDSM, DD) by Kathryn Blake – Will a victim of domestic abuse be able to live a domestic discipline lifestyle? Kudos to Kathryn Blake for tacking a sensitive subject.

Laying Down the Law (BDSM) by Celeste Jones – After her divorce, a woman returns to law school where she becomes involved with a fellow student, a much younger man. He awakens her to the pleasures of BDSM.

Last Ascension (The Capes 3) (sci-fi) by Rebecca Royce – Not a spanking book! The younger brother of Draco and Ace comes into acceptance of his own superpowers when he assists a young woman in need.

Wanting it All (BDSM) by Livia Grant – When a husband discovers his beloved wife has been cheating on him, he delivers her to The Punishment Pit to be forced into signing divorce papers. Another risk-taking book. Awesome, awesome read.

#SaturdaySpankings, #8Sunday: From Warrior…the stakes are high…

Only 10 days until the release of Warrior, the third and final book of the Breeder sci-fi romance series. Warrior releases on Tuesday, Oct. 21. When it debuts, I’ll offer two new release prize drawings: one for $25 in chocolate, another for a $75 Amazon gift card. Details here.

The scene for this week’s snippet: Urazi and Anika have been camped out; she’s on the run from the bad guys. He wakes up in the morning to discover she has fled (again). But just in the nick of time, because moments later, the bad guys arrive…

Warrior coming Oct. 21!

Warrior coming Oct. 21!

Urazi had a heart-stopping moment when the leader removed his crossbow from his shoulder—but it was only to shift it to the other side. Mouth dry, Urazi asked, “What shall I do if run across the female you seek?”

“Apprehend her and bring her to one of Qalin’s outposts. You will be rewarded. A bounty of 150 gilia rests on her head.”

“So much?” He gasped. For a fortune of that size, many would join in pursuit.

“The alpha she killed was one of Alpha Qalin’s subcommanders.”

(Breeder readers might remember that Dak purchased Omra for 50 gilia. Qalin wants her baaaad.)

Warrior blurb

A female fighting for freedom. A male armed with determination. Can they save their people?

As a despotic Qalin marches through Parseon intent on conquering every province, Commander Marlix pledges his sister to another Alpha to protect her. Desperate to decide her own fate, Anika flees and finds refuge with the guerilla resistance movement against Qalin. Marlix’s beta Urazi, a male of lesser status, tracks her intending to bring her home to fulfill her duty. But when love blossoms between them, and provinces fall to Qalin, Anika and Urazi realize home has ceased to exist and they alone are all that stand between the people of Parseon and the end of the world.

Spotlight on The Chemistry of Attraction by Thianna D

Take one hot summer. Add in an intellectual chemist and a dominant retired Marine. Once the chemistry ignites, combustion is soon to follow.

Chemistry of Attraction

By Thianna D

 Goodreads link

Chemistry-of-Attraction-Final_200x300Retired Marine Brandon Delt, moves to Corbin’s Bend after his recently divorced wife marries his cousin. Tired of living a non-discipline lifestyle, he fully welcomes the openness of the Corbin’s Bend spanking community. One day he hopes to meet the woman he could make his TiH. He doesn’t expect to meet her on day one.

Carodine Minor’s just in Corbin’s Bend for the summer. Just graduated with her master’s degree in chemistry, Dina isn’t sure of her next step in life. Not once has she ever considered being spanked. Logical woman that she is, when she finds herself intrigued by the idea of a hand across her derriere, she asks for a demonstration from Brandon. One demo turns into a wild night of passion neither wants to let go of.

Take one hot summer. Add in an intellectual chemist and a dominant retired Marine. Once the chemistry ignites, combustion is soon to follow.

Chemistry of Attraction Excerpt:

There was a momentary silence and then one of his hands rested on her lower back and the other lifted. Slap! His hand came down harder than this afternoon, heat sizzling in its wake. Before she even felt the warmth that bloomed from it, he hit her other cheek. Back and forth he went, covering her entire derriere with hard slaps until her entire rear end felt like a light sunburn.

But she didn’t care. Each smack of his hand lit up something inside of her, something primal, raw, animalistic. Arching her back, she growled softly when his hand slammed right between her cheeks. Each slap produced its own sound, but she barely heard them, her left brain utterly fascinated by the sounds coming out of her own mouth. When his hand came down on that sensitive crease between buttocks and thighs, her logical brain blanked out. What remained was wanton, needy, and craving everything the man at her side could give her.

“More!” she cried out as he hit her sit spot again. Her entire body felt like a coiled spring and she so wanted to be sprung. All she needed was just a few more. Just a few more. Please, just a few more.

Brandon had other plans. “Spread your legs,” he commanded and she rushed to obey, not wanting him to stop. “Fuck, you’re so wet, beauty,” he murmured, the fingers of his spanking hand drifting between her legs, stroking along her clit and delving into her core.

“More,” she whimpered as those wonderfully strong, large fingers began to fuck her, rubbing against something that made her arch more and let out a low keen. So close. She was so close. It wouldn’t take much more to send her over. Damn, he—

Smack!

As his hand that had been on her lower back came down right on her rump, the world exploded. Lights burst in front of her eyes even as her cunt spasmed and she opened her mouth in a silent scream. Her muscles clenched and squeezed, pulling her through the roughest orgasm she had ever felt.

And it wasn’t over yet.

Out Now – Timeless Desire by Lucy Felthouse @cw1985 #erotica #romance #paranormal #ghost

image001

Timeless Desire Blurb

Emily arrives at Westbury Hall with a job to do. She’s to clean and conserve all of the books in their impressive library, preserving them for future generations. Not long into her stay at the house, she bumps into the night guard, George. She’d expected an old, balding guy with a comb over, so the hunky chap she actually meets is a very pleasant surprise. The introductions complete, George leaves Emily in peace to get on with her job. But when a falling photograph sets off a chain reaction of ghostly events, Emily and George are thrown together in order to find out who—or what—is causing them. Their investigation uncovers a tragic past, a lost love, and a stunning secret.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a revised and extended of a previously published title, Love Through Time.

Timeless Desire Excerpt:

timelessdesireEmily received some strange looks and frowns from the people she passed as she walked across the graveled drive towards the front entrance of Westbury Hall. She could appreciate their confusion. It was closing time for the stately home and the last of the visitors were being politely ushered out of the building, yet she was heading inside. What’s more, she’d been invited. She had a job to do.

An elderly lady stood in the porch smiling and nodding as she held the door open for those departing the property. Most of them seemed in no hurry to leave, stopping to make comments to the woman, thanking her for a lovely visit and so on. Emily waited patiently, allowing the patrons to leave before attempting to get in. When the staff member—most likely a volunteer, Emily thought—caught sight of her, she gave her a polite nod of acknowledgment.

Finally, the last of Westbury Hall’s visitors moved out, leaving Emily free to enter. Climbing the single stone step to the threshold of the front porch, she took the hand that had already been offered to her.

Shaking Emily’s hand with a surprising firmness, the woman said, “You must be Miss Stone.” Her smart appearance and the intelligence in her eyes indicated that despite her advancing age, she was far from past it, “I’m Mrs. Thompson, house supervisor.”

“I am,” replied Emily, dropping her hand back to her side, “but please, call me Emily. It’s lovely to meet you. So, house supervisor? Do you live on site?” Not a volunteer, then, but a paid member of staff.

Indicating Emily should step inside the entrance hall, Mrs. Thompson proceeded to close and lock the porch and front doors of the house, securing them in.

“I do,” the older woman said, turning back to face Emily, “I have rooms in a separate building just off the back of this one. So you needn’t worry about me disturbing you.”

“Oh no,” said Emily, worried she’d inadvertently rubbed Mrs.  Thompson up the wrong way, “I didn’t mean that. I was just curious, that’s all. You’re more than welcome to see me at work, Mrs. Thompson, although I’m afraid you won’t see anything terribly exciting.”

Mrs. Thompson smiled now, the warmth reaching her eyes. Emily almost sagged with relief. She’d yet to see the extent of the work she had to do, but she’d been told it was no easy task, so she could be here for some time. The last thing she needed was to upset any of the staff.

“Oh, you’d be surprised, my dear. This is a fascinating old place. Of course, all these old houses have history, but Westbury Hall’s is particularly rich.”

Emily smiled. The woman’s enthusiasm was infectious. “Well then,” she replied, “I can’t wait to learn more about it. I hope you’ll feed me some historical tidbits throughout the time I’m here?”

Mrs. Thompson gave an enigmatic smile. Then, startling Emily somewhat, she turned smartly on her heel and walked deeper into the house. “Come, my dear, I won’t hold you up any longer. I’ll show you to the library, where you’ll soon start uncovering Westbury’s illustrious history for yourself.”

The “new” older me – photo!

It was time to update my public photograph. My last was taken five years ago. I didn’t want to be one of those people who never ages in their photo and when you see him/her in person you have a hard time matching the person to the picture. The photo I’d been using had been taken five years ago by my husband:

The old younger me:

At the Ozarks Romance Authors conference held in October, I had a picture taken by professional photographer Sharon Davis.

The new older me:

Cara Bristol

I’m always working on my bio. I never know what to say, but here’s the latest version:

Cara Bristol continues to evolve, adding new subgenres of erotic romance to her repertoire. She has written spanking romance, contemporary romance, paranormal, and science fiction romance. No matter what the genre, one thing remains constant: her emphasis on character-driven seriously hot erotic stories with sizzling chemistry between the hero and heroine. Cara has lived many places in the United States, but currently lives in Missouri with her husband. She has two grown stepkids. When she’s not writing, she enjoys reading and traveling.
