That is the question presented by Jane Burrelli’s newest book:
Hidden Embers (Bride of Fire Book 1)
Lets have a peek at what is between the pages…
When the gods breathed life into us, they blessed us with an element. It’s a pity they didn’t care to bless anything else.
The Empress of the Throne of Flames is assassinated. Acting as a decoy to protect the next Empress, the undervalued Princess Nymira flees to the north. She must now carry the sacred sword, the symbol of her people and rejoin the Empress.
It is a mission Mira cannot fail but first, she must traverse the Western wastelands. The journey is perilous and the once sheltered princess finds herself rescued by the Ice Lord, Zorren. The leader of the Iceari, the natural enemy to Firelanders.
Zorren is reputed to be a ruthless leader and Mira fights the attration that blazes between them. Resulting in a clash of not only their wills but also their elements. After all, fire and ice don’t mix. Or do they?
This is book one of the new Bride of Fire series. Join the journey to a mystical world and the adventure and romance that awaits.
Publisher’s Note: This fantasy romance is intended for adults only and contains elements of danger, suspense, mystery, adventure, and sensual scenes set in an apocalyptic world.
NOW YOU ARE INTERESTED... SHH… Lets open the curtain just a bit more into this apocalyptic world.
Now lets read more…
“You must have an escort and act in a ladylike manner at all times, you are my mate and represent me. Most importantly, you will keep that famous, impulsive Firelander temper under control and never call your fire against me.”
My Firelander temper was sparking nicely at that exact moment. Somehow, I resisted shooting a jet of flame at his backside. I stared straight at him in challenge. “Or what?” “I will not hesitate to discipline you, it is my duty as your mate.” “You what!”
I screeched unable to prevent it from bursting out. The rules were not so different from what I had lived under before, but this was new, and I didn’t like it one bit. As long as I didn’t draw notice my aunt had let me do as I wished.
“I will put this in terms you might understand.” My eyes were on his firm lips. “You try to roast me, and I will not hesitate to heat that delectable backside as a very displeased mate.”
“Ha!” I scoffed in his face, my iron-clad control malfunctioning. “I’d like to see you try.”
Do you want to see when he tries? Then you need to buy the book.
When I realised that the world was not hiring for a ‘sarcastic but benign Supreme Ruler of the Universe’ I’ve decided to focus on my passion. By day I work in a UK company’s finance department and by night I become my alter ego Scribble Girl or as my good friends have affectionately dubbed me the ‘sex author’. Always armed with a notepad and pen in the black hole I call a handbag, I have been writing never ending stories since the age of 11 and this all stemmed from my love of reading.
I love reading. Period!
I’m part of the Harry Potter generation and while waiting between books would literally devour any book I could get my hands on. Let’s put it this way J.K Rowling has a lot to answer for. I adore that there is no end in sight to where your own imagination can take you and that between the pages of a book you are transported to another world.

Can Tilly confide in Constable Joel Agnew before it’s too late?
Hello my Lovelies,
Look at this new book by Kate Charlton. This is a fresh theme for me and a setting that will give you a new perspective on Australia for us Non-Aussies.
I chatted with Kate and she said she likes to throw some mystery in the mix so if you think the setting, subject, and maybe the author is new to you, now you have a bit more mystery. Like unwrapping a surprise.
I can’t wait.
Like a nibble?
She’s survived the mean streets of Manchester and slavery in a mill. Can she survive a brutal penal colony?
Convict Tilly Marsden has to serve four years as an unpaid maid in Australia before she can get the prized Ticket of Leave.
With freedom only two months away, Tilly agrees to turn a friend’s shirt into a dress. When she discovers it was stolen, she throws it in the river.
Watching her is Joel Agnew, a convict working as an unpaid police constable. Sensing Tilly deserves a break, he dishes out some old-fashioned discipline. They both think that’s the end of the matter.
Then a body is discovered and Tilly finds herself in danger. Can Joel help her before it’s too late?
Publisher’s Note: Her Convict Constable is a sweet romance with a bit of mystery and old-fashioned Victorian discipline.
Would you like a tasty serving of what you will get inside?
She could feel the constable’s eyes appraising her. Her cheeks burned and a million worries ran through her mind. Was he going to ask for sexual favours in exchange for letting her go? She’d have to agree if he did, even though she was scared and had no experience. She’d just have to pray she didn’t get pregnant or she’d end up back in Crime Class anyway. And they’d take the baby away from her when it was weaned, she’d never be given a chance to look after it.
Tears welled up again. Irritated, she blinked and swallowed hard, determined not to show the constable how upset she was.
“Well, by the look of you, you’re sorry about what you did,” said the constable. “And if you’ve come this close to getting your Ticket of Leave, I think maybe a different kind of lesson will do you more good than marching you back to the Female Factory.”
The relief that washed over Tilly was brief. The constable gripped her arm more firmly and pulled her closer towards him.
She steeled herself. This was it. She had to do whatever he wanted, whether that was sucking his cock or letting him take her up the arse or whatever he was into. If she wanted her Ticket of Leave she had no choice.
She gasped as he tucked her under his arm so that she was bent over, bum in the air. Oh, lawks, he was going to spank her. She hadn’t been spanked since she was fifteen and the supervisor at the mill had punished her and Sarah for being half a minute late for work. He’d put her first, then Sarah, over his knees, lifted their shifts and spanked their bare bottoms in front of everybody at the mill, including the men and boys. The spanking had left painful black bruises, but the humiliation had been worse. She hadn’t been able to meet the eyes of the other mill workers for days.
Now, Tilly kicked out at the constable in panic. “Enough!” he said firmly, gripping her harder. “Do that once more and I’ll fasten you in the stocks to do this.”
Tilly forced herself to calm down. She braced herself for the constable to bare her bottom.
But he didn’t. Instead he smoothed the shift down, making sure her bum was covered. But when his large hand descended in a scorching slap that made her squeak, Tilly realised the thin, rough material didn’t offer much protection. Time stood still as the constable peppered her backside with slap after slap, each one as loud as it was painful. All she could do was gasp, squirm and yelp, and pray that no-one would come along to investigate the noise and see her being spanked. Desperately, she tried to move away but this only resulted in him grasping her even more firmly and smacking even harder.
Kate Charlton loves romance, history, mystery and the occasional dose of old-fashioned discipline. She combines all four in her books.

Her Gilded Dragon
Her Gilded Dragon: A Norse Warrior Romance
by Susannah Shannon
Want a nibble?
After she is forced to flee her kingdom with the aid of a loyal general, Princess Hanne of Vastra begins a long, arduous journey to the frozen lands far to the north, where she will be married to Jonis the Gilded, the famed warrior who defends the great fortress of Pinnacle Keep.
Though Hanne is intimidated by his fearsome reputation, upon reaching her destination she is put at ease by Jonis’ good humor and amazed by the pleasure his skilled, dominant lovemaking brings her on their wedding night. But when she challenges his authority, the beautiful young princess quickly learns the hard way that her new husband will not hesitate to bare her bottom and spank her until she is tearful and repentant.
To Hanne’s surprise, the stern chastisement merely increases her desire for Jonis, and soon their lust for one another has grown into a passionate love. But when the foes who drove her from her own land threaten Hanne’s new home, will Jonis’ skill in battle prove sufficient to protect the woman he loves or will the ancient power that burns in his blood be his only hope to save her?
Publisher’s Note: Her Gilded Dragon includes spankings and sexual scenes. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.
Want a bigger bite? HERE!
Jonis appeared in no hurry. He cradled her in his massive arms, whispering her name and that she was beautiful. Stroking her hair and marveling at how soft it was, he was a tender titan. He didn’t demand; he cajoled, he wooed, he waited. Her body began to respond of its own volition. She seemed to be dissolving into a pool of golden liquid. Her breath was coming in shorter and shorter gasps. Hanne buried her face into the crook of his neck and willed herself to relax to give in to bliss. The heart scars ran too deep. She couldn’t do it, in spite of the waves of intense pleasure rocking her body. Pleasure was a language she didn’t yet speak. His strong hands cradled her head as he took her deeply and deliberately. Hanne felt exposed and closed her eyes. “Look at me, snow dove,” he commanded. She began to gasp, “I’m sorry,” but he shook his head. “No need to be sorry, you are very lovely. Sometimes a woman needs to trust her man. I promise I will earn your certainty.” Hanne sighed, her breath moving in waves like the bliss that radiated from her core.

Book 1 in the Safe and Secure Series
Have a look:
Sharlee Armstrong is happy spending her professional life in seclusion as Vapor, a highly sought out independent information broker. Though she has plenty of high paying clients, the offer from Reynaud & Associates piques her curiosity. During the interview, her libido is also piqued when she meets Jacquard Reynaud—gorgeous, sexy, and dominant.
The job, not just the boss, intrigues her and she accepts the offer. But things spiral out of control, and she finds her reputation, livelihood, and life in jeopardy. Jac and the rest of the alpha males on her new team demand she keep a low profile, but she has other ideas.
The minute she steps foot into his office, and life, Jac knows he has to have Sharlee, but first he must keep her safe—not just from some unknown threat, but from Sharlee herself. He loves her sass but worries that she’ll find herself in real trouble if he cannot keep her under control. So, despite her protests, he takes her in hand. For her own good.
Will she ever learn to let Jac protect her? Can she let Jac and the rest of the team into her previously quiet, mostly solitary life?
I’m excited to share my new adventure with you! Come on…
Here is a taste:
The light was changing, indicating the sun would set soon. Sharlee dialed the number and in less than ten minutes, a truck drove up.
“Looks like you’re in a bit of a bind, miss.”
Sharlee looked at the man and hesitated before speaking. “I guess I am. I think I ran over something because both of my front tires are blown. It’s just my luck.” She decided to keep her find to herself. Something was off, but she wasn’t sure if it was her paranoia or what.
“Obviously, I only have one spare tire. Could you get me to the nearest gas station?”
“Sure, but I have a shop about half mile further down this road. I could fix you up in no
The man reached for a metal hook to attach to the under casing of her car without saying
another word. Charlotte jumped from behind her car door where she had been standing.
He walked up closer to Sharlee causing her stomach to cramp from the bad vibes she got.
He was positively leering, causing her body to seize with anxiety. His dirty shirt declared there was ‘No such thing as bad sex.’ Her panic rose.
“What’s wrong? Don’t you want help?” The man seemed to ooze the sleaze factor.
“Well, um, do you take credit cards?”
His smile was lewd. “Sorry little lady, we only accept cash.”
Speaking through her fear she said, “Your truck says you take credit cards.”
Then the creepy man sneered and said he could only accept cash after dark. “But we could work it out if you like.” His grin revealed a set of dingy yellow teeth that made the acid in her stomach roil.
She looked at the still light sky as she contemplated his words. “That doesn’t make… Just a moment,” she said. “Don’t hook me up any more until I see if I can get the cash.”
God, something was terribly wrong, and it felt like a crappy but equally horrifying version of the Bates Motel. She jumped back into her car, locked the door, and called Jac. He made her stay on the line while every available man was called to show up in response to her mayday call. She was privy to his choice words about the situation as he made the calls while she was on speaker phone. She cringed. He was royally pissed at her.
“I just called my friend to bring me some cash,” she said through the small opening at the top of her window. She made sure it was small enough that he could not get his fingers inside while she sat and bounced her leg nervously.
“Got another gal bringing money, huh? I’ll wait in the truck.”
He rubbed his hands as though she had ordered him a seven-course meal.
What comes next is funny… but you will have to read to find out and then comes the lesson in what being part of Jac’s team was all about.
