Calling all Christmas lovers!

             L… O… N… G          P…O…S…T             T…O…D…A…Y

I have some news! I am part of a wonderfully talented group and have been kindly invited to join them on this Love, Christmas 2 Collection.

But before I venture further into that, I wanted to talk about changes in my world. So, its August, the month where U.S. children return to school. Remember we have 11 children (long, complicated story. OF COURSE, I’m writing a book about it but not in this arena. I’ll keep you updated as there are updates.)

But, for now, lets focus on the new upcoming events. I have the first book of Cian and Molly’s story done and the remaining two of the trilogy outlined. WHEW! I’m excited to finish them and that is the only WIPS I am working on as I promised to have it earlier in the summer and things…LIFE… got in the way.

Anyway, we are homeschooling again this year but adding our 8th grader (our youngest. Her brother will graduate in November with plans to go to college in January.) Hope the heat moderates for us ALL!

I’m back…

Hey,

So just to say I’m home and settling back into my routines. I am behind in all work projects so am hiding and writing my little heart out. But I needed to stop and let you all know about my friend’s new book and do my cover reveal. Since I hate emails, I am doing them both at the same time.

First, I’ll give you the new book just out:

YEP, we are going to SCOTLAND

Now back in England her employment is unexpectedly terminated, leaving her alone with little coin and no prospects. Returning home was not an option. Faced with a life full of hard choices or starving, Cairis gratefully accepted the position of companion to Lady Ashton.
Cullen Black O’Leary dominated the seas, his business, and the lassies. Returning to England to survey his new estate, Cullen sought his escort, Cairistine Donohue. He found her trying to escape him with her red hair flowing and sweet sassy mouth telling him off.  She was as elegant as any aristocrat, sweet and naughty as a beloved child, and ferocious as a tiger. He had to take her as his own.
When Cairis’ dark secrets were revealed, threatening to ruin her and destroy their hope for a future, could she do what her Black Laird required to secure their future?

Intrigued?

He admired her gorgeous hair, a pool of gleaming copper. Soft, silken, tendrils trailed like fire over the creamy mounds of her breasts, nipples taut, exposed to his carnal gaze. He ached with the need to mate her; she was irresistible, ravishing. Standing, he peeled off his clothes, turning to face her, his manhood pulsing stiffly from his groin.

“Look at me, wife,” he commanded. She gazed at him, never having seen a man naked before, she was fascinated; her eyes devoured the sight of his tumescent hardness that testified his desire for her. How proudly it jutted, long and thick. Were all men made so, she wondered. Her eyes travelled down his long powerful legs, covered in whorls of dark curling hair, the plain of his flat stomach, the wide, well-muscled chest, coated in the same dark hair. Her gaze took in his broad shoulders and strong biceps. Linnet’s gaze finally settled on John’s lean face.

Disconcertingly, he watched her beneath those hooded inscrutable grey eyes, his stare unwavering. As he moved purposefully towards the bed she shyly, nervously, shifted over to accommodate him. He gathered her into his embrace, kissing and caressing her. He began to stir her passion once more. His deft fingers worked their magic, her furrow quivering, slickly plump with desire. He slowly moved above her, this time she parted her legs unconsciously welcoming,   he guided himself to her waiting cleft.

With a thrust, he drove into her yielding channel, she lifted her hips, bucking, meeting thrust for thrust, needing him.

“Now,” he whispered hoarsely, “now… you see, you are mine.”

SAVING SHARLEE 
Book 1 in the Safe and Secure Series

Saving Sharlee_black

She has always been safe in her secret world, but once she is exposed,

will she ever be safe again?

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…
Amazon

coming soon

ONE MORE WEEK!

 

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

time.”

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.

“Hey, wait.”

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.

She couldn’t be happier…until…

Taken by Surprise

by

Shanna Handel

Shanna Handel has come to visit me as she begins the wonderful life of being a published author. Come in and meet her, you will really enjoy the chat. We will be seeing more of her in the near future. If you are looking for heavy erotica, look elsewhere, but if you want HOT LOVE  administered to a Naughty wife, you have found your next stop.

 

Lila’s life is perfect. A successful career in fashion, a sleek, artfully decorated home, and her adoring husband- Luke. Everything is going her way. She couldn’t be happier.

One night while enjoying a few glasses of red wine to unwind after work, she gets a little cheeky with Luke. He takes her by surprise and instead of putting up with her humor, throws her right over his knee for a good, sound spanking. Lila is left confused. She is angry that her husband took the liberty of punishing her, but also finds herself incredibly attracted to Luke’s new, commanding behavior. Despite her conflicting emotions, when he proposes a new way of life- doing things his way for a change, Lila agrees.

A visit to Luke’s hometown only adds to her confusion. She discovers that her outgoing southern-belle sister-in-law, Heather, and her husband have been practicing domestic discipline for years. She also learns that her husband is not shy about spanking her whenever he sees fit.

Life has a few more big surprises in store for Lila. Some are heartbreaking, one will change her life forever. Will it all be too much for Lila and make her revert to her old bossy self? How far is Luke willing to go to convince her that his way is best?

This is a sweet spanking romance, where the heroine takes several trips over her husband’s knee.

Publishers note: This book contains elements of domestic discipline and spanking of adult women. If any of these themes offend you, please do not purchase.

Yummy! Excerpt

“Lila,” Luke used his fingers underneath her chin to guide her gaze up to meet his. “I said, do you understand?”

“Yes, sir,” Lila muttered.

Luke raised his eyebrows at her, “I think that you are in need of a reminder spanking.”

Lila gulped, “No, I think I’m good. I really will take better care of myself.” She started to inch away from Luke on the bed.

“I don’t think so. When you are sitting at your office desk at six pm, I want you to have a memory that will get you in the car on time.”

Luke gently guided Lila over his lap. He lifted up her skirts and pulled down her panties.

“Lila, I want you to watch me spank you. Look up.”

Lila looked up, realizing that Luke had positioned her facing the antique, full-length mirror.

She gasped at the scene before her. He looked so handsome and powerful. She was in an incredibly vulnerable position.

Then, as she watched, he spanked every inch of her bottom. She started to squirm.

Read a Recent Review of Taken by Surprise

 We own each other, heart and soul

By Redrabbitt on October 28, 2016

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase

I found this first part of the Taken Trilogy to be a page turner. The main two characters are a husband and wife, Luke and Lila, but also the story has many secondary characters that all play a vital role in this tale. This is the voyage into incorporating domestic discipline into their marriage and setting a new tone after a new promotion for Lila was altering control. The story is an excellent example of a loving couple learning the give and take of a relationship and deciding what is the most important issues to keep peace and harmony.

Lila is a very successful in her career in the fashion world. She dresses sharp, had a stunning home, is over lots of people and doing well. But sometimes promotions and power can upset the balance in a marriage. Luke loves his wife, is successful in his restoration of antique vehicles, and is proud of all Lila has accomplished in her career. For her job, he moved from his hometown so she could have this job. He can appreciate her control at work, but she has started to take their relationship for granted and even laughs at Luke and makes unacceptable comments.

One night, pushing to issue too far, a husband telling her he will take her in hand, she laughs, and he shows her he is serious. Was it a fluke, or is this the direction their marriage needs to take? When she pushes it again, he shows her he is serious. Luke talks to Lila that he wants to be Head of Household and wants her to accept and work with him. What starts as a week a vacation, becomes a learning curve for Lila. But when an accident hurts Luke, Lila will learn how precious life is.

Lila may return to their home and her job, while Luke stays with his family to continue with his recovery, but Lila is lost without him and either she is overdoing it at work, not eating and sleeping right and then she isn’t focused. Luke will have to take charge so this couple will continue on a path to happiness.
