#WinterSpanks: Cold hands, warm bottom…


Burr…it’s old outside, a spanking is in order and the spanker has cold, cold hands. Sure your bottom will be hot, but what about the rest of you? How do you stay warm during your cold-handed, bare bottomed spanking? Here are my ideas. Share yours and you’ll be entered into a random drawing to win a copy of Terran, the second book in the Breeder series when it is published this year (probably this spring). Please see the detail below about this prize.*


  1. Wear socks. Warm tootsies can warm your tushie.
  2. Don mittens. Your hands can be warm even if the spanker’s aren’t.
  3. Fur-lined handcuffs. Keeps your hands from getting the way and keeps you toasty.
  4. Get your buns roasted in front of an open fire. Receive your spanking in front of the fireplace.
  5. Drape the spanker’s lap with fuzzy afghan.
  6. Begin with a massage.
  7. Precede the spanking with a hot bath.
  8. Add some heat with a finger of ginger.
  9. End your spanking with a cuddle and some hot sex.

Now what are your ideas? Be as silly or serious in your suggestions as you want.

CB_Breeder_coverlgA Blurb for Breeder, the first book in the BREEDER series

To secure his legacy, Commander Dak, a ruling Alpha of planet Parseon, purchases Omra, a breeder slave. He intends to impregnate her, produce a son, and hand her off to his anointed beta partner. As Dak and Omra discover a sexual bliss banned by law, he begins to question the traditions and ways of his people, causing him to jeopardize his command and endanger the life of the woman he has come to love.

Breeder Excerpt

If not for the sneeze, Dak would have exited the musty, dank corridor. But the muffled sound caught his attention. When he squinted into the darkened cell, he spotted a female crouched on a straw mat in the corner. He hadn’t noticed her on his way into the Breeder Containment Facility; the habitation unit had appeared empty.

Dak turned to the BCF director and sighed. “What about her?”

The beta’s already crooked mouth drooped farther in distaste. “My apologies, Commander. You don’t want that one.”

Sival’s disparagement piqued Dak’s interest. The director’s opinion had proven worthless; none of the breeders he’d preselected for inspection had rated close to satisfactory.

“I would like to see her,” Dak insisted.

“Very well, Commander.” Sival saluted and opened the habitation cell with a master entry card. Dak stepped into the small enclosure. The director followed, and the metal gate clanked shut.

The naked female drew into a tighter ball and tucked her face deeper into the crook of her arm. Other breeders had preened as soon as they’d noticed him and his chest-insignia identification. He wasn’t just an alpha. He was the Alpha.

This breeder’s lack of respect and failure to adhere to Protocol by acknowledging his presence struck him as odd. Dak frowned. “Is she mentally deficient?”

Sival tightened his lips. “No, stubborn, ill behaved. She would not befit an Alpha Commander.” He nudged the female’s hip with the toe of his boot. “Rise to your feet.” She did not respond, and he moved to prod her again. Dak forestalled him with a wave and grasped the female’s arm.

“You will stand.” He hauled her upright. She averted her face, so he grabbed her chin and forced her to look at him. Tangled hair the color of black heating stones fell back from an oval face to reveal eyes like the Parseon moon. The glimmer of intelligence that sparked within the violet depths aroused his interest more than anything else he’d seen so far. Nature had bestowed the Parseon people with an exceptionally strong immune system so that they rarely required medical intervention, but breeders by nature were weak, and so many of the ones he’d seen had seemed dull or ill or both. This one’s skin, when unsmudged by grime and dirt, probably glowed like the pale sands of the Ospian Sea. He supposed, as breeders went, she wasn’t unattractive, although the stench emanating from her was. His beta would throw a fit if he dragged such a creature into their domicile.

“Why is she so filthy?” he asked.

“She refuses to bathe.”

As Dak scrutinized her facial features for shape and symmetry, he noted little imperfection or dysgenics other than her lack of hygiene and her gender. When cleaned up, she would please the eye, but to bear his sons, it mattered more that she be healthy and strong.

He released her face, stepped back, and assessed her from head to toe. He exceeded the height of most males, alphas included, while she stood smaller than the average female. The top of her head failed to even meet his shoulder. She was thinner than other breeders too, although her chest bore an abundance of fatty breast tissue. In the chill of the cell, her nipples had puckered to hard points. Despite the coolness, he was experiencing a rise in temperature. A dormant lust chose that moment to kindle, causing heat to coil in his abdomen and groin. He could not remember the last time he’d experienced such a spontaneous reaction—if he ever had. With the pads of his fingers, he probed the sides of her neck for swollen areas. The way she trembled under his touch aroused a sliver of sympathy. Breeders lacked courage, and uncertainty frightened them. Not all alphas and their betas treated breeders well. If he chose her, she would be adequately fed and housed. His command consumed his time and energy, which left his beta alone for long stretches. A breeder would relieve Corren of household chores and provide him with a physical outlet as well.

“What is she called?” Dak asked.

“Her sire named her Omra.”

Peace, it meant.

He parted Omra’s lips with his fingers and slipped a digit into her mouth, running it along her upper gum line to check the solidness of her teeth. At a flash in her eyes, he jerked his hand away a centisecond before she snapped her jaws together, so that her incisor only grazed the tip of his finger.

Sival’s face reddened. “Commander, I apologize. I will have her flogged.”

“Unnecessary. I will take care of it.” He unclipped the sudon from his belt.

    Fun ideas! Hmm…I’d have to go with fleece drop seat jammies.

    Happy Winter Spanks, Cara!

  2. marysuewehr says:

    Hot excerpt, Cara. Love your ideas. The only thing I could think of is a good massage before the spanking;)

  3. Chelle says:

    I love fuzzy socks.. and hot chocolate.. those are my go to winter warm ups lol

  4. houston_switch says:

    Turn up the heat or use an extra space heater to warm the room. The spanker will be warmed by the exercise, spankee will be warmed by the spanking. Once the deed is done everyone will be warm.

  5. Tara Finnegan says:

    hmm, a nice glass of mulled wine to warm the insides first perhaps, then a blazing log fire, sounds good.

  6. Leigh Smith (aka Sunny Girl) says:

    A blazing fire or turn up the furnace until the inner furnace takes over.

  7. Brittany Wendtland says:

    Love your ideas!! I would say jacuzzi after the spanking!!! bw2323bro@yahoo.com

  8. His First Mate says:

    Do i have to come up with new ideas? I loved the drop seat jammies, the wine and the fireplace ones! Maybe a hot shower before hand? It would make it hurt worse though!

  9. Add some heat with a finger of ginger is one I like! Heheeh

    Maybe some icy hot? The ones listed are pretty darn good. What would be sadistic is the peppermint oil. Then it would feel hot yet cool.

    how about a spanking in a sauna!

    I would LOVE the next in the Breeder. Terran sounds like a good one.

  10. Laurel Lasky says:

    I loved the breeder. I live in Florida so I don’t have to worrying about the cold. I would love to come in after playing tennis, and a warm shower followed by a hot spanking.

  11. Great excerpt Cara. We don’t have an open fire but I love the thought of a spanking in front of an open fire.


  12. I still love this scene, Cara 🙂 Dak is so sweet 😀


  13. Tony Walsh says:

    Very nice excerpt! Peppermint Schapps and Hot Chocolate tend to warm me up in the coldest times. Thanks! thecoverartisan@gmail.com

  14. catrouble says:

    LOL Cara…I get cold very easily and Matthew always allowed me to wrap a comforter around my shoulders and if it was very cold, he would fire up a space heater. Have never figured out why I stayed where there is cold/snow/ice! 😉

    Cat catsbrighteyes at gmail dot com

  15. Hot chocolate with a shot of Kahlua, Crème de cacao, and Amaretto liqueurs topped with whipped cream will warm me up very fast! Loved your excerpt of Breeder and can’t wait for Terran to be released!


  16. It gets mighty cold here in Calgary, but to warm up before a spanking, my tried and true method is to sip a little snowshoe (Buffalo Trace whisky and peppermint Schnapps). Not too much, mind you, just enough to take the shivery jitters away. Giving away book 2 is a brilliant idea. I hope I win! Pig@patriciagreenbooks.com

  17. melissa says:

    Love your story. And I love socks. I think I have an unhealthy addiction to socks.lol

  18. Thianna D says:

    LOL First off? Love the ideas. I would add get one of those large industrial-size heaters and have the spanking outside in the cold with it on high 😀 That way you are toasty hot, but you know if you move away from his swinging hand, you are gonna get very cold.



  19. Loved Breeder!
    I can’t wait for the second book!

    Hmmm, I like the hot shower idea.
    And maybe an electric blanket for before and after.

    Stay warm!

  20. ghwasd says:

    Nice tips and thanks for the excerpt. ghwasd at gmail dot com

  21. bn100 says:

    Be next to a heater

    bn100candg at hotmail dot com

  22. Jennifer says:

    Serve hot chocolate before the spanking – his hands will be warm from the cup! LOVED Breeder and looking forward to Terran! ingen77@yahoo.com

  23. I loved the idea of one of the commenters “drop seat jammies” and had to laugh at the same time. I like the idea of a glass of wine and a roaring fire in the fire place. If all else fails a space heater will do.

  24. Renee says:

    They say we lose a lot of heat through our head so I think a lovely hat and scarf set to keep those areas warm. I like the idea of a glass of wine too. Loved, loved, loved Breeder and looking forward to the next story. Thanks.

  25. Tammy Faris says:

    LOVED the story! I think being spanked in front of an open fire is the absolute best!

    tammyfaris1966 at gmaildotcom

  26. Laura says:

    Oh, I can’t wait to read this. Thanks, so much for the excerpt. For me, a hot bath, a fleecy robe, and a hand that warms quickly sounds good.

  27. I would stay warm by running from whoever wanted to spank me.

  28. Casey McKay says:

    I do like a sexy spanking, so 8 and 9 are my favorites of your suggestions.
    Also, I usually have a few drinks, that keeps you nice and toasty 🙂


  29. Great ideas to stay warm. My hubby’s hands are always cold. He usually drapes his lap with a fleece blanket to keep me warm. I can’t wait for Terran!


  30. amy bowens says:

    Wow some great ideas on how to keep warm. I usually keep warm with a nice roaring fire, but I must say I like the idea of ginger just have never tried it. Look forward to your new book thanks for sharing.

  31. Angie says:

    A nice soft blanket to lay over my back to keep me warm.

  32. Shannon F says:

    I like to keep my Uggs on and I ask my husband to run his hands under hot water first.

  33. Binz says:

    I have never thought about it, but your number 9 sounds like the best way to me.
    lburger1908 at gmail dot com

  34. Patty Devlin says:

    Giving away Terran is a sneaky/wonderful idea! What’s cruel is making them wait! If I win can I please please have it now? I don’t care if it’s not completely edited yet. I’m easy… er I mean I’m Oh hell- I’m easy! Pick Me!!!

    I’ve had some spankings where I tried to tell Dev it was too cold to spank me. I like to stay bundled and I’m sure if someone saw me they wouldn’t think it was sexy AT ALL. Me in my sweats under my nightgown with a sweater over top that and then warm fuzzy socks and slippers…. He doesn’t let me keep my pants up, but that area doesn’t stay cold for very long…

  35. Karen says:

    I’m thinking a shot or 2 of brandy. Or a space heater. Brandy is way more fun 🙂

  36. Laurel says:

    I like the idea of one piece pjs with a drop seat. Excuse me, I have to run out to buy some batteries.

  37. I’ve wanted dropseat jammies forever! I ask hubby to wrap me in as much of the electric blanket as doesn’t interfere with the part he’s warming. Hot chocolate with a bit of St. Brendan’s helps, too! Thanks for the snippet.


  38. amber says:

    Brandy, hot chocolate, schnapps…they’d all help.


  39. Sadie says:

    This has piqued my interest. Another on the TBR pile!

  40. Kara Leonardo says:

    Sounds like an interesting book. For me, I like fuzzy socks and mittens.

    kfemme at sbcglobal dot net

  41. QuenKne says:

    Great ideas!! I say forgo everything…you won’t be cold once the spanking starts and then follow up with a warm shower & massage!!!

  42. I think I’d wear one piece footy pajamas with a flap in the back. Easy access to the naughty bottom but stay snuggly warm everywhere else. maddietaylorromance@gmail.com

  43. Tracey Horton says:

    Very nice excerpt. I am keeping warm in sub zero temps right now with eggnog spiked with Southern Comfort and an electric throw blanket on the couch with the fireplace going!!

  44. Lie on a heating pad for your spanking. Loved your suggestions!
    normandiealleman *at* yahoo *dot* com

  45. chickie says:

    warm socks, snuggly blankie, and a fire are all I need!


  46. M. Palmer says:

    I’d have to say a nice hot shower – preferably before the spanking! Oh, and little fuzzy socks during… to keep the toes warm!

  47. Shadow says:

    I love your post! The story, your list, etc! Fantastic! I always wear warm socks! I guess im prepared for it anytime! 😉 lol Gotta admit, i do love a heat blanket. When im so cold, cuddling up with them is almost orgasmic! hehe Thank you for sharing! Loved your excerpt!
