However, once the earl learns of her true identity, she has every reason to believe
he will never return her feelings.

A Tantalizing Taste:

It was just so liberating to be lightly bound and following commands. She didn’t have to worry about what to do and what to say, whether she should be reciprocating in some sensual, provocative way that seemed to come naturally to some women, but which she had never understood.

Prior to this experience, sex had always been something awkward and slightly stilted. Like some kind of complicated dance that no-one had shown her the steps to and which she had no chance of following after the music started. So instead of relaxing she fretted and second guessed herself, wondering if she was doing the right thing but feeling like a failure regardless, until she was so stressed that the whole thing became an ordeal to endure until the man she was with got off and she lay there feeling disappointed and vaguely unfulfilled and wondering if that’s all there really was.

But not tonight. Tonight, something magical was happening. Tonight, she felt free; as if someone had waved away the burden of unrealistic expectation and replaced it with the permission to just feel. And boy was she feeling! Every touch, every kiss, every…thing seemed startlingly magnified. This was the closest thing to bliss that Charlotte had ever experienced and intuition was telling her that this time there was certainly more to come. Hopefully her! Yes, definitely her. It would be the first time. Well, not the first time. But the first time with a man. Oh goddesses! What if it didn’t happen. Would Jake be able to tell? What if she disappointed him anyway?

Suddenly Jake bit down on her nipple and the light bolt of pain wrenched her away from her thoughts before he laved at the small hurt and it bloomed into a tingling pleasure.

“You’re thinking so loudly I can hear you,” Jake growled. “Keep it up and I’ll be forced to spank you to take your mind off whatever is winding you up.”

Spank her? Charlottes pussy clenched at the thought and she felt her panties dampen some more.

Jake chuckled darkly against her breast. “I don’t think you find that idea too dreadful, do you sweet Charlotte. Would you like to feel my hand warming that pretty ass until it’s all hot and pink and branded with my palm?”

“No”, Charlotte panted. “I mean yes!” Her back arched as Jake bit down tenderly on her other nipple, taking away her ability of coherent thought. “Oh goddesses! I mean, were there two questions there? I can’t think…”

Charlotte could feel the laughter rumbling in Jake’s chest. “That was the idea. Don’t think! Just feel. You were doing such an excellent job of it until your brain kicked in.

 

A few words about Poppy:

Poppy Flynn was born in Buckinghamshire, UK and moved to Wales at eight years old with parents who wanted to live the ‘self-sufficiency’ lifestyle.

Today she still lives in rural Wales and is married with six children.

Poppy’s love of reading and writing stemmed from her parents’ encouragement and the fact that they didn’t have a television in the house. 

“When you’re surrounded by fields, cows and sheep, no neighbours, no TV and the closest tiny village is four miles away, there’s a certain limit to your options, but with books your adventures and your horizons are endless.”

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!

A gentlemen rancher, an outcast tough girl and a paddle in the desk drawer

 We have an exciting new author in our midst, TESS MATHEWS.

This is Tess’ second book with Blushing, her first historical Western was The Sheriff Takes a Bride and now, she brings us, Cassidy’s Gentleman.Tess has joined the crazy and rewarding world of writers in our Blushing Family. I truly enjoyed her first book and look forward to this second one, written in my favorite place and time: Texas 1880’s…wonder if Cassidy ever met my Texanna?

Welcome, Tess!

Let’s have a peek inside Cassidy’s Gentleman…

Cassidy’s Gentleman

 By Tess Matthews

Texas in the 1880s was no place for a tenderfoot. Thornton Steele is a gentleman from the East, but he came to run a ranch, and he has the strength and determination to do so. He dreams of starting a new life, free of the strictures of his traditional Maryland family, and he is ready and willing to take on whatever barriers are put in his way. The lawless West of the time provides those barriers in plenty.

 

Cassidy Hart, a Texas native, shares that dream of starting her life over in another place, but she, by her own account, is no lady. Daughter of an unwed mother, she takes care of herself the best she can in the same little town where she was born, even though the wide-open sky is the only roof she can call her own. She is tough, because she has to be, but sensitive, because that’s the way her mother raised her before dying young.

 

The gentleman and the not-quite lady are thrown together by circumstance, and the attraction is instantaneous. Still, Cassidy cannot help but doubt the Easterner’s sincerity, and pushes back, even as she is drawn to his strength, charm, and good looks.

 

Thornton, being a man who knows what he wants, wastes no time attempting to prove his love and concern for Cassidy’s well being. Oftentimes, however, to Cassidy’s chagrin, he demonstrates that concern with his strict hand on her bare bottom.

 

That, of course, is not the end of the lesson, and Cassidy soon learns to look forward to the soft caresses and kisses that follow a session over the big man’s lap.

 

Cassidy’s Gentleman is a story of love and fun, intrigue and violence in the scarcely tamed West. It also is a true romance, with plenty of loving domestic discipline in the form of spanking.

 

Publisher’s Note: Cassidy’s Gentleman is a romance novel that contains descriptions of sex and of domestic discipline in the form of bare-bottom spanking and paddling. If such subject matter offends you, please do not read this book.

 

Makes you want to get out there and buy it. I just did!

 

This bite will keep you coming back. I am SURE she knows my Texanna!

Read this!

“Get back, Thorne, I’m warning you.” Cassidy picked up a vase and held it up.

“Do not threaten me, little girl. If you throw that vase you are only adding to your

trouble!”

The vase whizzed by Thorne and smashed on the opposite wall.

Thorne grabbed Cassidy by the elbow.

“Now, Cassidy, I am going to teach you not to be an ungrateful foul-mouthed brat.”

“Let me go, you overgrown ox, I warn you, you better let me go or you will be sorry!”

“No, little girl, I am sure you are the only one who will be sorry.”

Thorne pulled Cassidy toward the study.

“What is going on in here? We heard a crash!”

“Tillie, you and Gus go back to what you were doing, Cassidy and I are going to have a

discussion in the study.”

“No, Tillie, please,” Cassidy shrieked. “He has lost his mind.”

“Cassidy, why are you afraid of Mr. Thorne?”

“I will tell you why, Tillie, she is afraid because Mr. Thorne has had enough of her bratty

behavior and he is going to spank her backside till it glows crimson red.”

Tillie gasped.

“Let’s go Tillie, this ain’t none of our affair,” added Gus.

Tillie gave Cassidy a painful smile and walked away.

“No, Tillie, please don’t—”

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.

Shanna Handel Bio

Having the time of my life writing adult books about the things us people crave.  I adore every one of my characters and am often lost in their world.  When I do come back to reality, I love to spend time outdoors, baking, and hanging with my family.  I totally lucked out and married my soulmate.  My hope is that you will enjoy my books as much as me!

Sending you lots of love…and spankings, Shanna Handel
