#SatSpanks -The Truth is in the Moan- a snippet from Common Grounds in the #JustDesserts Collection #NewRelease

click here to visit the Saturday Spankings blogHello! Happy Saturday Spankings and Happy 4th of July! :) I’m going to share a bit more from my story in Just Desserts. It’s a collection of 22 hot NEW stories from bestselling, award-winning and multi-published authors. It will only be available for a limited time and for only .99!

Last Week: Kate tried to push Mark away with a little fib.

This Week: Mark’s putting her through the same test. He just claimed her croissants were just okay. Lol. I’ve skipped just a little. We start with her reaction. Enjoy.

“That’s completely ludicrous. My baking is far from just okay.” She took a step forward, intending to put distance between them. He didn’t let her get away. When her body met his warm strength, she melted and moaned from somewhere deep within.

“I’ll tell you what’s ludicrous.” He grabbed her ass. “All the effort it’s taking you to deny what you feel when you see me.”

Just Desserts 3DCommon Grounds Blurb:

While Kate Sanderson mixes batter and pumps buttercream inside her tasty creations at the West Egg restaurant, she dreams about two things: owning a bakery and finding a man capable of satisfying her every desire. Mark Larosa designs little masterpieces daily at his tiny barista station at the local Star Coffee and he tailors each drink to the customer. The only cup he can’t seem to get right is for the sassy baker, Kate. He’s determined to give her what she really wants.

When a new building goes up across the street, the pair trip over each other trying to grab the last unit before a chain restaurant claims their dream. To get what they crave, they might have to work together and find the elusive common ground.

Mid Week Tease -He Should Put Her Over His Knee- A snippet from Common Grounds #JustDesserts – #NewRelease!

click to see all of SJs Mid Week TeasesWelcome to hump day my friends. Thank you to the beautiful Sandra Bunino for bringing us together.

I’m taking a little break from Taking Over to share my newest project …

JUST DESSERTS – A Collection of Bite-Sized Delights

Last Week I shared how Kate met Mark.

Today’s Tease I’ve skipped forward to another tasty scene. Kate has been working overtime trying to convince herself she and Mark won’t work but maybe she has it all wrong. Maybe she really should give him a chance. Is it too late?

Enjoy!

She should have gone to see Mark yesterday. The few short encounters they had proved they could give each other immense amounts of pleasure. She gripped the edge of the counter and focused on a stain at the bottom of her apron.

The chime on the front door filled the space and yanked her out of her musings. She turned to find the man who filled her thoughts.

“Hi.”

“You were supposed to come see me yesterday.”

“I was just about to come over.” The lie left a sour taste in her mouth.

“Really?” He came toward her.

“No, that was a lie.” She looked down at the display case in front of her and busied herself with thoughts of what she should bake next.

“You seem to be making a habit of that where I’m concerned.” His feet came into her peripheral vision.

“You shouldn’t be back here.” She focused on the display, trying to remember what she was thinking about.

“I should put you over my knee.” His gravelly voice had her backing up a step.

“What? Why?” She looked up at him, tilting her head. “I haven’t lied…much.”

#SatSpanks -She’s One of Those Girls- a snippet from Common Grounds in the #JustDesserts Collection #NewRelease

click here to visit the Saturday Spankings blogHello! Happy Saturday Spankings! :) Just Desserts  released on Monday and is getting fab reviews. I hope you’ll check it out. It’s a collection of 22 hot NEW stories from bestselling, award-winning and multi-published authors. It will only be available for a limited time and for only .99! It includes my story Common Grounds which begins a whole new world for me.

Last Week: Kate ran into Mark at the club, literally. Attraction was instant. I shared more of that scene on Wednesday.

This Week: I’ve skipped forward. No spoilers. Kate has been burned by unrequited love before and she’s determined not to get burned again. Now, we’ll see if Mark can be chased away by her little fib. Enjoy.

The lie sounded catty, but she hoped it would do the trick and cement a wall between them.

“I see.” He looked her up and down. “You’re one of those girls.”

She flipped her hair over her shoulder. “If you mean smart enough to stay away from players like you, then yes, I am one of those girls.” She put her hands on her hips.

He removed all the space between them. His thigh brushed hers.

Mid Week Tease -I Need to do That Again- A snippet from Common Grounds #JustDesserts) – #NewRelease!

click to see all of SJs Mid Week TeasesWelcome to hump day my friends. Thank you to the talented Sandra Bunino for bringing us together.

I’m taking a little break from Taking Over to share my newest project …

JUST DESSERTS – A Collection of Bite-Sized Delights

22 Bestselling, award-winning and multi-published authors bring you the naughtiest delights in 22 NEW stories. Wait till you see the list of authors below.

Today’s Tease Kate is having a night out with her two girlfriends at the BDSM club. After a quick trip to the bathroom she returns and runs into the very man she’d been admiring earlier. Enjoy!

She pressed her palms to his hard chest and then took a firm grip of his shirt as she steadied herself. Her focus settled on the color of the fabric. That same dreamy deep ocean color she’d been admiring earlier. A tremble ran through her. When she raised her gaze, she locked on a pair of sparkling baby blues. She held her breath, wishing time to stop, as she flexed her fingers over his firm chest.

“Hi. I didn’t see you there.” He held her tight. Maybe, just maybe, he was holding them together.

“Sorry.” She licked her bottom lip. Gosh, he is gorgeous.

“I’m not.” He swiped his knuckles across her cheek bone. “You’re beautiful.”

“Thank you.” She shook her head. “Where did you come from?”

“The other side of the room.” He pulled her closer and clutched her hips. “It’s my first time here.”

“You’re not a member?” She ran her touch over his firm chest muscles.

“Not yet, but that’s the plan. I had my interview with Logan this afternoon.” The husky tones in his voice made her toes tingle.

“I see.” Master Logan must approve of him if he’d let him come to the club tonight. A new song filled the room, slower than the others. She shifted her weight back and forth, contemplating walking away from him, but she couldn’t place a single reason why she should.

“You caught my eye the minute you stepped into the club.”

“Why didn’t you come over and say hi?” She gazed down at her hands.

“You were with your friends and I wanted to observe you for a bit.”

A shiver of awareness fluttered from the tips of her breasts to the heat building in her pussy. “That’s such a Dom thing to say.” She looked at him through her eyelashes.

“Is that a bad thing?” He raised his eyebrows.

“No.” She nibbled on her bottom lip, very aware of how close his hands were to the bottom of her short skirt and her bare ass underneath.

“Can I have a taste?” He caressed her bottom lip with the pad of his thumb.

“Sure.” She wanted nothing more than to know his taste, to breathe him in deep within her.

He leaned in and pressed his lips to hers. The kiss was gentle at first. It felt like mini bursts of fireworks were going off in her system—pleasure and light and the need for more all rolled into one. He pushed his tongue into her mouth while she opened wide, letting him take control. Tension eased out of her as she wrapped her arms around his neck.

He pulled away for a moment and she held her breath. “I need to do that again.”

I hope you enjoyed my tease! Kacey Hammell has more of this very scene, today. :D

Blind Taste Test by Anne Lange

A stand-alone erotic short story.

Contemporary Erotic Romance, Menage

Anne Lange Teaser

An erotic romance author who needs to inject more realism into her sex scenes finds herself in the middle of a blind taste test in which she’s the dish for a double helping of dessert.

The Interview!

Hi, Anne! I’m so happy to have you here.

Hi S.J.! Isn’t this exciting! Just Desserts is finally live and it’s our first project together :)

I hope this is the first of many projects we have together. :)

First question: Who or what inspired you to write your first book?

The very first book I wrote, is not my first book released. It’s actually my second book. The first book I wrote is Friends with Benefits, the first in my Vault Series. And at the time, it wasn’t even planned to be part of a series.  What inspired it?  Boredom.  Plain and simple. I was bored and decided to try writing something to pass the time. I read voraciously and decided I’d try my hand at crafting a story myself.  I used locations I was familiar with and relied on one of the genres that I like to read myself. I didn’t plan it out. I just wrote by the seat of my pants. And voilà!  After many iterations, and some on-line writing classes, Friends with Benefits was born.

The first book I ever wrote was written in much the same way. Only difference is that I’ve pushed it under my bed. Maybe someday I’ll pull it back out.

Tell me something about your hero and heroine in “Blind Taste Test” that made it difficult for them.

Hmm.  Well, she’s blind folded and they are not.  Probably the most difficult thing is the guys don’t want to give themselves away. So they try to disguise their voices and limit the dialogue.  For her, the blindfold helps maintain a certain distance. This is a totally new experience so she’s really nervous. But she’s also very excited about the prospect of being with two men. Though that wasn’t what she expected when she agreed to the set-up. Surprise! :)

I was excited for her, too!

Something about your hero and heroine in “Blind Taste Test”” that makes them perfect for each other.

Tough question.  Let’s see. Dale and Liam are younger than Lynda but they are mature. They are successful in their careers. They’ve established themselves and now find they’re ready to settle down. They both want a woman they can love, preferably the same woman. Lynda is coming out of a bad relationship where her husband belittled her. She needs somebody to love her and encourage her, to help her see the beautiful woman she is.  Luckily she’s found two such guys.

All three of them are very lucky to have found each other when they did!

Thanks for having me S.J.!  Congrats to you as well on your Just Desserts story Common Grounds. I loved this story and can’t wait for your fans to read it!

Aw! Thank you, Anne. Your story is fabulous. Readers are going to love it! This has been such an amazing project.

About Anne Lange

Shoes are her addiction, but books are her passion. Anne reads many genres of romance, but prefers to write sexy stories with a side of those sinful pleasures your mom never told you about. Oh, and always a happily ever after.

While embarking on this wild journey of becoming a romance author, Anne juggles a full time job and a family. Not always successfully, though. Who needs a clean house every day? And what’s wrong with cereal for dinner?

Anne lives in Ontario, Canada with her wonderfully supportive husband, three normally awesome kids, a chocolate lab who loves to cuddle, and a bearded dragon who loves carrots.

#SatSpanks -He Wants A Taste- a snippet from Common Grounds in the #JustDesserts Collection #ComingSoon

This snippet is from the beginning of Common Grounds. Kate has just run into Mark at the club, literally. They’re holding onto each other while they talk. Attraction was instant. He’s new in town and admits to observing her. She tells him that’s such a Dom thing to do.

“Is that a bad thing?” He raised his eyebrows.

“No.” She nibbled on her bottom lip, very aware of how close his hands were to the bottom of her short skirt and her bare ass underneath.

“Can I have a taste?” He caressed her bottom lip with the pad of his thumb.

“Sure.” She wanted nothing more than to know his taste, to breathe him in deep within her.

He leaned in and pressed his lips to hers.

Mid Week Tease -He’s Got Her Where He Wants Her- A snippet from Taking Over (Love Projects 3) – #NewRelease!

MWTease15Welcome to hump day my friends. Thank you to the amazing Sandra Bunino for bringing us together.

I’m also teasing today at Lynn Burke’s. Hope to see you there. :)

Last Week Marcus learned something pretty significant about Gina’s life that she hasn’t shared with many. Marcus tried to get to the bottom of the situation and she tried reminding him that he’s not her Dom.

Today’s Tease I’m teasing from this same scene. Gina is struggling with not telling Marcus the whole truth and it’s becoming increasingly more difficult. At this point, he’s about to position her in the sex swing he’s just found at her place. Reminder: Marcus believes her marriage to his best friend ended after she cheated. Enjoy!

“Rob never told me you two had one of these.” He picked up the leather swing

“He never used it.”

“Oh.” He looked back and forth between her and the metal contraption. “Did you use it with the other guy?”

“No!” She spit out the water from her latest sip. “I bought it for Rob and it arrived the day he left me.”

“Oh.”

“Would you stop saying that?” She sat down her glass and marched over to him. After grabbing the swing from his grip, she attached it and turned, taking a tight grip on the handle bar. “You’re going to need to help me up.”

He knelt at her feet, not breaking eye contact.

She steadied herself in his grip and, with his assistance, hoisted herself into the seat.

He secured both of her feet in the stirrups and stood back.

“You’ve got me where you wanted me. Now what, Master Marcus? Or don’t you think you can handle little ole me?”

taking-over4 300x450

 Blurb: 

Gina’s life was perfect, until the day she realized the man she loved didn’t love her back. Her charming life turned upside down as tragedy and cruelty struck her down. She learned to protect her family from those who could cause them pain, but she inadvertently ensured the perfect life would be forever out of her reach.

Marcus has hid his love for Gina for years. His assumptions about her have allowed him to be harsh, but underneath all the anger is a man deeply in love. The tough realities of her life put them in position to see themselves in a whole new light. The second chance is right there and it could take them over the edge into the love they’ve always wanted.

Be Warned: spanking, light BDSM, sex toys, public exhibition

Having never creatively written a word since school, she picked up her iPad and hesitantly started to write in secret thinking she’d write a short story, before she knew it she had 97000 words!

That was four books ago. She has written three erotic thrillers for Siren Publishing and this time has written her first erotic/paranormal, The Forever Forest, and has chosen Evernight to publish it for her.

“It is great to see your work come alive,” Gayle says. “Although you have various Beta readers telling you it is a great story and a real page turner until a publishing company says ‘Yes we want your work’ you only think your friends are being nice and trying not to hurt your feelings. Seeing the front cover being emailed to me for approval is always the best part and Jay Aheer has done the most amazing job, as she always does ,with all the Evernight Authors.

Excerpt – The Forever Forest

“You mentioned Jekyll and Hyde earlier, I’d that how you see me?” Gabriel asked as they sat eating their pasta.

“A bit yes. You seem so quiet normally, but this morning, when we were in your bedroom, you were a different person. More forceful.”

“I asked you this morning if that scared you and you said no, but when you walked in here today you seemed very nervous.”

“Apprehensive I think is more the terminology you should be using.”

“Why?” he asked casually.

“The word dominant conjures up many images in my head. I’ve read books, and I know what it means.”

“Is that how you see me?”

“Yes.” She gulped.

“You are a very astute woman. You’ve already worked me out from this morning?”

“Yes. I’m a Detective you know, it’s my job.” She tried to make a joke, but she knew it just sounded like panic.

“The term Dominant can mean all sorts of things in life.”

“What does it mean to you?”

“I’d like you to look at yourself,” he said, deflecting her question.

“In what way?” she asked.

“You are an extremely dominant woman in your work, and I presume you are like that because you are in a very male oriented world and have had to learn to be like that. Am I right?”

“To a certain extent, yes,” she agreed.

“But I get the feeling that is not your natural personality.” He took a long drink from his glass and refilled both glasses again.

“How so?” She nodded in thanks to the wine and picked her glass up and put it to her lips. The wine, along with the food that Gabriel had prepared, was a taste sensation. “Every now and then I see Alice falling down a rabbit hole, only fleetingly, but it’s there.”

“That’s a strange analogy, explain.” She smiled as she put her glass down and picked up her fork once more.

“I know you’re good at your job and you are obviously very thorough, but I get the feeling that this persona, this hard woman, is not the real you. You have been dragged out of your comfort zone with this career and have had to learn to adapt.”

“Keep talking.” This man was good.

“You are an extremely foreboding personality and I wouldn’t want to cross you at work, but last night and this morning I saw a different side to you, a timid side, and one I’d like to explore a little further.” She went to open her mouth, but Gabriel put his hand up to stop her saying anything. “Before you jump down my throat, hear me out please.”

“Ok.” She was beginning to take offense at his hint that she was weak.

“You do not socialize with people from work, do you?”

“No, they’re a bunch of arseholes. I like a few of them, but I still wouldn’t choose to  spend any amount of with them, Tanya is probably the only one I would see out of work.”

“So is that because you don’t want people to see the real you when you take your mask off?”

“I’m sorry?”

“When you get home, do you close the door behind you and lock the woman away and the little girl is released?”

Rebecca didn’t say anything, visions of her unicorn pajamas folded on her bed suddenly flicked through her mind.

“I take it by that silence I’m correct.”

“Go on…”

“Let’s take another avenue. Tell me about your last relationship.”

“Er, ok, I met Harry when I was working on a stalking case few years ago. He was the victim before you ask.”

“And you started a relationship with him?”

“After the case was over, yes, I did. He was a lovely man and wanted to marry me, but it wasn’t what I wanted.”

“What did you want?”

“Something else.”

“And what was that?”

Silence reigned as Rebecca couldn’t quite give him a reason why she didn’t want to marry Harry.

“Did you ever take that mask off in front of him?”

“Why do you keep going on about a mask?”

“Because I think, and please feel free to correct me if I’m wrong, that you are such a force in your work and all you want to do when you get home is curl up and lock the door with a book and a glass of wine. Am I right so far?”

“Possibly.”

“Harry met you in a work environment, didn’t he?”

“Yes.”

“When he was possibly at the lowest time in his life being stalked, making him jumpy and needy.”

“True.”

“And you were the strong Detective Sergeant Rebecca Leigh, crime fighter extraordinaire.”

“Now you’re taking the piss.” She laughed. “You had me believing you then.”

“Look at the situation. Was it the tough DS Leigh he fell in love with, or the little girl lost that escapes to her fantasy world in books or TV?” Silence again. “How was your sex life?”

She blushed. “Good, I think.” She hated talking about her sex life as she’d discussed with Tanya that morning.

“Was it always you that took the lead, perhaps always instigated sex?”

She thought for a moment. “He was busy, always working long hours.”

“And you weren’t?”

“That’s not the point,” she answered abruptly.

“It totally is the point. He saw you as the dominant personality in your relationship and in all aspects of it, and I don’t think you are. Yes, you are dominant in your work life, but you want to be that woman who is taken care of, too.”

“I think I get what you mean.”

“So I want to explore that side of your quieter personality, not the tough CID Detective Sergeant.”

“How do you intend to do that?”

“There is one avenue I want to explore with you, Rebecca. It will probably make you very apprehensive.”

“What’s that? You’re killing me here, Gabriel. Get to the point will you?”

“I want you to submit to me.”

“What, in everything I do?” She panicked.

“No, just in the bedroom or wherever sex occurs. Your life is your own. I would not try and change that. I like that side. It’s feisty, but it is Rebecca I want to explore further, not Detective Sergeant Leigh.”

“I’m not into whips and chains and things.”

“Stop panicking. It’s not all about that. It’s about control. It can be, but that’s not what I want from this.”

“What do you want from it?”

“Basically, to Dominate you in our sex life.”

“I’m not sure about this, Gabriel. Is this something you’re used to?”

“It has been in the past, yes. It can make a very interesting relationship. Basically I want to pleasure you in every way possible, and I want to ensure that you have enough orgasms to make your ears bleed.”

“And what do you get out of this?” she asked curiously.

“To take care of you. Don’t worry, you will satisfy me, too, but my purpose will be your pleasure.”

“The perfect man?” She chuckled.

“You said it, not me.” His eyes looked over his wine glass, and although she couldn’t see his mouth she knew he was smirking behind the blood red liquid.

 

Ten New Things to know about the Love Projects Series

taking-over4 300x450I’m excited and still a bit nervous to be finally sharing Taking Over, the third story in my Love Projects Series. It’s the story that will change everything in this series. The heroine is the trouble maker from the first two books and she hasn’t given you a single reason to like her, yet. Oh boy!

Since there are now three books in the series, I thought I should give you an updated ten things list. My first ten things post, from last June, can be found here and that post includes the *extra love scene from Taking Chances.

  • All of the Love Project stories are standalones. However, if you read the whole series, you will find fun overlaps. This time around you’ll even get a tie in from the first book in my Club Blind Series, In the Blind. More on that below.
  • I updated the chart! This is where I show my dorky organization skills. Lol. I’ve added Untangle Me, Unravel Me (Executive Assistant Anthology) and Unshakable Me (Uniform Fetish Anthology) since they are written in this world as well. Thought you’d like to see where they fit in the time line.

Love Projects chart 2015

  • The first book, Taking Chances (Jake and Lydia’s book) ended on the same day the second book, Taking Courage (Simon and Janna’s book) begins. You can see TAKING OVER starts before Taking Chances ends. TAKING OVER begins just before the epilogue in Taking Chances. During the first scene you’ll find Gina dealing with how she treated Lydia. You might be surprised how she feels or not. Lol. But I will tell you that she immediately searches for solace at the spanking benches.
  • Miles from Unshakable Me plays a small important role in TAKING OVER. Brad, a secondary character in Untangle Me, plays a small significant role too. Marcus is hoping to pay him back for his help. Wonder if he’ll get his wish when Brad is the hero in Club Blind 2?
  • If you read Taking Courage, you might remember the scene where Gina is caught flirting with Janna’s Dom, Simon. With one firm word from Marcus, Gina walks out of Simon’s office. What happens next between Marcus and Gina? Well, that scene is in TAKING OVER.
  • If you’ve read In the Blind, you know Gina was married. In fact, her divorce became final just before Taking Chances begins. Was Gina jealous of Lydia’s luck at finding love when her own heart was broken? Maybe.
  • So, who was Gina married to? She married one of her two best friends from high school, Rob, the hero from In the Blind. Their love might not have been meant to last, but Gina will always care for Rob. She sure put Jane, the heroine from In the Blind, through a few tests to make sure she was worthy.
  • So, who was that other best friend from high school? It was Marcus of course.
  • Marcus and Rob have remained best buds all these years. I think you might be surprised who is Gina’s best friend at the end of TAKING OVER.
  • Keller, the owner of Club Voyage and the CEO of Voyage Industries, has been at least mentioned in all of my Evernight books, even Desire Unexpected (Assassins and Sweethearts 1). Just like in the first two books, he plays match maker in TAKING OVER. Keller’s book will wrap up my Love Projects Series. Do you know who his heroine will be?

I wrote an extra scene last year when Marcus was getting Club Blind ready to open. You can see in the chart up above that In the Blind takes place before TAKING OVER begins. Anyways, I’ve placed the scene here. You get a little from both Gina’s and Marcus’s POV.

Gina:

Gina ran down the stairs armed with her directive from Master Keller, but also to finally find out what Marcus was up to. She had no idea why he ranked so high on Keller’s list. If Marcus was up to something shady, she’d make sure he answered for it.

Keller told her she’d find Marcus in the basement. She opened the heavy door to the final set of stairs and found the first bland looking corner of the building. The walls were cinder-block and the stairs were nothing but wood planks. She searched for a light switch and found none, luckily there was just enough light. She skipped down a couple steps, eager to complete her mission. The door shut behind her with a quite whoosh and then nothing. She no longer heard the club members or the music from the club above.

Once at the bottom of the stairs, she was greeted by more cinder-block, these were painted black. There were a few naked light bulbs hanging from the ceiling, but still no light switches. The hall was lined with doorways and they all seemed to open to the same emptiness, black rooms with no doors.

“What is this place?” A sinking feeling filled her gut. She searched the corners for cobwebs and found none, not even a speck of dust on the cold dark floor. She did find one door in the long hall. Slowly, she pushed it open and revealed an overly white space filled with lockers and then the lights went out.

“Shit.” She let the door close and backed up a step into the hallway. “Marcus.” She looked left, right and saw nothing but black. She closed her eyes and felt her way to the hallway wall. Soothing music poured into the space. She couldn’t place the speakers. They seemed to be surrounding her.

There were times in her life she hadn’t felt safe and she told herself this wasn’t one of them. Her heartbeat continued its rise. She was still in Keller’s building and she knew Marcus was here somewhere.

“Marcus.” She reached out in front of her. Nothing.

She took a deep breath and pressed her palms against the wall behind her back, the grooves in the blocks grounded her. She knew where she was, but why was she here? Upstairs she knew what to do, whatever the Dom demanded. An intense heat warmed her from within. What would be asked of her in a space like this, one where she couldn’t even see?

She tucked her hair behind her ear, the movement feeling more intense, more deliberate. She felt her way up her arm, around her neck, and to her chest. She arched her back, wishing she had a Dom here now commanding her next move.

“Marcus,” she called into the nothing.

Marcus:

Marcus ended his call with Keller and slipped on his night vision goggles over his forehead. They’d finally come in and he was eager to try them out, especially now that the paint was dry and the space was free of the wretched smell. He still had a ton of work before the club could open their doors, but if he didn’t ensure the patrons couldn’t really see, it would be all for nothing.

The familiar brushing sound of the door at the top of the stairs opening alerted him that it was time for his test. His phone dinged twice, signaling the door opening and then closing. Keller certainly had decked out the club with top security details. Each item would keep the guests safe and one step closer to that single mind blowing pleasure filled experience. He remained in his position in the last room, waiting for whoever Keller sent down to make their way into the club.

“What is this place?”

He heard the whispered words from the last person he wanted to see in his club. “Fucking Keller.” He tapped out the code on his phone and the lights went out. After putting his goggles over his eyes, he turned on the music, slipped his phone into his pocket, and made his way into the hallway.

Gina stood in the middle of the hall, as gorgeous as ever. His cock hardened as it always did when he saw her. She called his name and he clenched his fists. This was an experiment and that was all, nothing more.

He made his way down the hall. She’d positioned herself against the wall. When she reached out, she almost caught him on the shoulder. He moved out of her way just in time. As he observed her, she seemed to be relaxing into her surroundings. Then she arched her back and pushed out her luscious breasts, inviting him to command her.

“Marcus.” She called with her sinful lips and he knew his test was over.

He stepped back, pushing his goggles onto his forehead, and then turned the lights on and the music off.

“What the hell, Marcus.” She looked around and then came at him, hands on her hips.

“Thanks for coming down. You can crawl back upstairs and tell Keller the test was successful.”

“That’s it?”

“You’re forgetting your place, sub.” He took a step to her and the light musky scent of her arousal made his hard cock jump.

She held his gaze for several heart beats and then looked down, but continued to lean toward him.

“That’s better.” He indulged in another deep breath of her. “You’re excused.”

#SatSpanks -Because He Has To- a snippet from Taking Over #NewRelease

click here to visit the Saturday Spankings blogHello! Happy Saturday Spankings! :) I’m sharing from my brand new release.

Taking Over released on Wednesday. :D

Last Time: Gina’s in desperate need of a spanking and has just consented to have her nemesis deliver the swats. Oh boy. Marcus, a sought after Dom, has promised to give Gina what she needs. Shortly after starting the spanking, Marcus realized Gina was not in the right frame of mind and stopped.

This Week: I’m sharing from the same scene. I’ve skipped a little bit. Enjoy!

“If you’re not up to finishing my spanking, I can find someone else.” All her energy was concentrated on keeping her focus steady. The last thing she wanted was for Marcus to see her weakness.

“I’ll finish what we started, but I need you to know you can talk to me. I’m a Master here, Gina. No matter our personal history, I’m here for you.”

“Sure, I get it.” Nothing like knowing he was looking after her because he had to.

taking-over4 300x450 Blurb: 

Gina’s life was perfect, until the day she realized the man she loved didn’t love her back. Her charming life turned upside down as tragedy and cruelty struck her down. She learned to protect her family from those who could cause them pain, but she inadvertently ensured the perfect life would be forever out of her reach.

Marcus has hid his love for Gina for years. His assumptions about her have allowed him to be harsh, but underneath all the anger is a man deeply in love. The tough realities of her life put them in position to see themselves in a whole new light. The second chance is right there and it could take them over the edge into the love they’ve always wanted.

Be Warned: spanking, light BDSM, public exhibition
