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!

Updates, a Contest, Recommendations

Hello all!

I’ve been busy this summer, how about you? I went to Blushing Books workshops in May then RT18-Reno, NV in May, Deadwood, SD in June, road-tripping in July, and East Texas Book Bash last weekend. WHEW!

I am finding how different retirement is when you don’t have most of your children and grandchildren around. This is only the third time in almost 30 years that I have spent the whole summer south of Alaska and let me tell you it has been a learning experience.

I’ll share a few things:

Lesson 1: It is HOT! I might repeat this one, because it is important. It is HELLACIOUSLY HOT! (adverb important here!)

Lesson 2: There are no grandchildren. On a day I want to be quiet and work hard, that is acceptable. But on the days you’re being lazy or your husband is bothering you while you are trying to work…or you have lots of leftovers… not so much.

Lesson 3: You can say, “Let’s go for a drive,” and leave in ten minutes for a day trip, seeing new sights while driving the highways. Not easy on an Island.

Lesson 4: If someone asks for a “coke” you must ask “what kind”.

Lesson 5: Summer rainstorms involve lightning and thunder but not gale force winds.

Lesson 6: It still gets dark in the south during summer- but it is still HOT!

Lesson 7: You are going to miss Alaska’s mountains, oceans, and your family but you will love the wide open spaces and things to do in Texas. So spend part of the year in Texas and part in Alaska. Best of both worlds. That’s us next year!

But when it is too hot in the South or too rainy in S.E. Alaska, there are always BOOKS! I have some recommendations below and a special contest.

Here is a book you should pre-order… for Fall and Winter reading.   I was honored to be invited to join the group. The heat levels go from Mild to Spicy… something for everyone! AND there is a Contest! 

Sprinkle a little Christmas magic into your life with 25 ALL-NEW, never before released romances. It’s .99cents!

I’m back…


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:


Trusting Ingrid

She sees a handsome man, directing and challenging, who won’t be intimidated by a powerful woman like her. He sees a woman whose bluster and sarcasm is a cover for something deep inside her that is badly broken. The daughter of a grifter, Ingrid has grown up street-wise and lawless. Lachlan has rescued more than one creature whose bark was worse than its bite. Will his stern, loving magic work on Ingrid?

Book 3 in the Lords and Little Ladies

Cover Reveal


YEP, we are going to SCOTLAND

Cairistine Donohue ran away from Scotland to the Colonies to avoid an unbearable future. 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?

Denial by Tabitha Black

Look, Tabitha Black has a new book out. IF you LOVED RESTRAINT, you won’t be disappointed with her latest release,


Disobey Sir Simeon’s rules at your own peril…

After finally finishing her degree, Shanna is rewarding herself with a holiday at Sir Simeon’s exclusive lifestyle resort, Nox Oasis. She can’t wait to finally experience some of the kinky things she’s only ever read about. 

All work and no play is making Cavill frustrated but he takes his job as dungeon monitor very seriously. So when he’s forced to rescue a new guest from unwelcome advances, the last thing on his mind is to take her for himself. 

But lust can so easily turn into more, and Shanna is irresistible. 

Meanwhile, Sir Simeon has discovered the deception of two of his favorite employees and the consequences could be devastating… 

Publisher’s Note: This steamy romance includes elements of power exchange. While it can be enjoyed as a standalone, we recommend also reading book one: Restraint.


Time for a taste of the leather… you know you want it…


So this is it. Sir Simeon’s kinky amusement park. I wonder what the next two weeks will bring? Anticipation made Shanna’s heart pound as she walked along the white pebbled pathway which ran between several signposts and small buildings. Various signs fired her imagination along the way; ‘The Wet Room,’ ‘The Clinic,’ ‘The Sorey Hole,’ ‘The de Sade Experience.’ Deciding to definitely explore that one—which was set up like a ghost train—at a later time, she instead followed an arrow to ‘The Little Turret.’ The building was like a perfect miniature version of a medieval castle turret, and her heart only began to beat faster as she walked along the small, fake drawbridge which led between the crenellated grey walls which cordoned this building off from the rest of the park.

The moment she pushed open the door, she could hear it: a rhythmic smacking sound, punctuated with howls, cries and promises to be good.

Shanna hesitated. There were obviously people playing inside, and as much as she wanted to take a peek, she didn’t want to disturb anyone. Then again, if they didn’t want to be disturbed, guests could always play in the privacy of their private suite, couldn’t they?


USA Today bestselling author Tabitha Black has been writing erotic spanking fiction for over twelve years, mostly in the age-play and historical genres. More recently, she’s discovered the joys of writing more contemporary, darker, edgier books with a greater emphasis on BDSM – one of which, Sharing Silver, was nominated for a Golden Flogger award and won the Spanking Romance Reviews award for best ménage.

Having lived in four countries on three different continents, and been an active participant in her local kinky communities, she likes to “write to discover what she knows.” Her own personal kinks include anything and everything to do with spanking, fireplay, edge play, scarification, age-play, and too many more to count. Some girls like wood, some adore leather, but Tabitha is partial to big, shiny, ornate knives… nothing else makes her quite as weak at the knees.

She lives in Europe with her Daddy/Sir, and a lilac cat who likes to sneeze in her face.

Love. Lust. Limits.

Sir Simeon Harvey has realized his lifelong ambition: to build a BDSM resort on a private island off the Australian coast.

At last Nox Oasis, with its grand apartments, exclusive membership, and very own kinky theme park, is opening its doors to guests for the first time.

George and Faye have been especially invited by Sir Simeon himself to celebrate the official opening. Having lost the spark in their marriage, they hope to rediscover their one time passion. What they don’t expect is for Simeon to make them an offer they can’t refuse.

Hazel Jenkins can’t believe her luck when she lands the plum job as head receptionist for the Oasis. While she has no experience in the BDSM realm herself, she’s fascinated by the whole idea.

Her initiation into Sir Simeon’s world is as shocking as it is arousing, and when she meets his godson, Dain Wilcott, the handsome American Dom, she knows just whom she wants to explore her kinky side with.

The question is, does he feel the same way about her?

Publisher’s Note: This book contains explicit sexual and BDSM-related themes, including MFM ménage, and mild breath play. If such material is likely to offend you, please do not purchase.

“Nox Oasis is no place for wallflowers, Miss Jenkins,” Simeon went on in his deep, gravelly voice. “As my head receptionist, you’re going to be confronted by all manner of things on a daily basis. I built this place because I wanted to create a kinky playground; somewhere for people to come and be themselves, no matter what form that may take. There’s still far too much prejudice against BDSM out there in the vanilla world—people think it’s all whips and chains and nothing else.” He sighed. “I can’t have prejudiced staff—”

“I’m not prejudiced!” she blurted out before she could stop herself.

He smiled. “I know that, sweetheart. I hadn’t finished yet.”

“S-sorry, Sir.”

“I also can’t have anyone on my team who is easily shocked, or overwhelmed by what they might see or hear.” He frowned. “I’ve been to too many BDSM clubs where sex isn’t allowed. It’s ridiculous. Everyone buggers off before midnight; a man gives his girl a flogging and they’re turned on so much they have to rush home to fuck instead of being able to do it right there, while they’re still in the moment, while their juices are still flowing, so to speak.”

“I understand,” she said.

“Good. So the idea behind this place is that anything goes, so long as it’s all within the principles of R.A.C.K.”


“Risk aware, consensual kink. It’s also why we have such an involved and arduous vetting process. Means that, once they get here, our visitors can relax and have fun knowing that everyone else is on the same page.”

There was a pause. Hazel wasn’t sure what to say, but she was glad the conversation had turned away from what was going on between her thighs.

A dominant does not mean…

I thought I would just ramble a bit today. Tomorrow is Father’s Day and I wanted to say a few things about misconceptions. While each relationship is different there are somethings that are not always understood.

In my world, I don’t call my spouse my dom. He doesn’t need it and neither do I. We play at home, not a club or small group. We are intimate. In my world a dominant, my dominant, is the Head of Household (HOH). Period. For us it has always been a natural way of life and I don’t even think about it.It is easy and takes arguing away.

Honestly, it was just what we did without rules, guidelines, and a lot of plain trial and error. We aren’t patterning ourselves after any specific group. Some clever people call it THIS THING WE DO and that is what I have loved to call it ever since learning the phrase.

Here are some things I have learned in our marriage that has lasted over 35 years.

A dominant man does NOT mean:

  • Rough, man-handling in the bedroom unless his partner really asks, verbally, for it and even then, increase in small measured quantities
    • What we say when we are aroused can be easily misinterpreted if a man is not well versed in his partner’s needs, things could go awry quickly
    • On the flip side, if she has established what level of intensity in play that she/he likes, don’t frustrate them by not fulfilling that need unless it is part of the game


  • Making all the decisions both in the bedroom and outside of it.
    • Some dominants enjoy all the control in the bedroom but contrary to the most exciting book you have read, they do enjoy their partner initiating things sometimes and enjoy reciprocal affection initiated by their partner.
    • Make the decisions you can but confer when needed.


  • They are ON all the time. Many or even most dominants want a capable partner if they are together outside of play because making all the decisions just sucks the life out of anyone.
    • That being said, it is a huge red flag if you need to “clear” a normal daily task with your dominant. This is outside of play and okay if agreed upon but there are limits. Both should be comfortable where they are set.


  • They are perfect. Of course, they make mistakes. They make plenty and should know how to apologize and if there is something needed to correct the mistake. All done without shifting responsibility.
    • They also expect the same from you. If either of you have difficulty owning up to human error, may I suggest working on that.


  • They are mind readers.
    • You want something, need something, experienced something, tell him, talk to him, be available to him. He can grasp many things but your thoughts, while may be easy to guess at times, is just that, a guess unless you have told him.


  • They are self-sustaining. They are human and as such, are needy beings. We all need love, reinforcement, to be allowed vulnerabilities and life hurts us all sometimes.
    • Be the person you want him to be for you. While they often know what to do, they want to do it with you. And need you as much as you need them.


  • You are his door mat, his puppet, his computer animation.
    • You are his partner, someone he should be proud of and if you do not have pride in yourself, it is difficult for him to continually boost you up. If self-esteem is a big issue for you, find a counselor to help you gain that self-love. It works both ways.


  • You do all the work both physically and emotionally, while he drinks a beer and watches the game.
    • If he cares for you and what you have together, he will do his best to share the load. Lovingly.


  • He barges in, takes over, and runs every show. He can’t fix it all, save it all, orchestrate it all. All the time. Don’t expect it and don’t ask it of him.


  • It’s all about sex, because it isn’t. It is all about everything. The way he loves, cherishes and respects you as well as expects those same things from you as an expected way of life.

You’re invited to a Honeymoon

It’s JUNE and we all know what this month is known for…WEDDINGS! And we just got an invitation to join Kal and Demi on their honeymoon! What could be more fun than that? We followed them on their engagement in Disciplining Demi 1 and we were SO WELL BEHAVED, we are invited to their HONEYMOON!

cover Demi 2

Disciplining Demi

The Honeymoon

The saga of Kal and Demi continues in this romantic erotica featuring domestic discipline, intense lovemaking, and bare bottom spankings. Join the new Mr. and Mrs. as they honeymoon atop a secluded mountaintop.

Excited to spend a week alone with her groom, newlywed Demi Durango packs a pair of shiny white panties with the word Bride sparkling across the small triangular stretch of satin and wonders if Kal will make good on his promise to fulfill her deepest sexual desires, but she soon learns there is more to her wifely duties than learning the art of lovemaking. She must also master the rules of Inner Peace in order to experience the harmony and happiness the DD lifestyle promises. As she’s reading the rule book, ‘Total Submission’ blazes across the headline. Stunned and overwhelmed, she questions her resolve. What would a man have to do to deserve her absolute devotion, inside and outside the bedroom?

Dominate, loving, and protective Kal Durango takes his responsibility to lead his family very seriously. Teaching Demi to live in constant submission to him is a dream come true, and she is making great strides in yielding herself to him and his instruction. He implements maintenance spankings at once to strengthen his position as head of household and to help her accept her position as a submissive wife. What he couldn’t fix with the palm of his hand, he was sure a long wispy switch applied to her bare bottom would leave little doubt of who was in charge, and the vast forest around them offers a plethora of instruments to help Demi along her path to submission.

Join Kal and Demi as they embark on their new adventure as husband and wife.



Here is a sneak peek at what going on this honeymoon will look like. What are you waiting for? Get that seat belt fastened!


“Are you going to be a good girl today?” Kal Durango asked his bride.

Heat rushed Demi’s face. Total embarrassment scorched her cheeks. Chin to her chest, she let her locks shield the redness as she busied herself with the pleats adorning the waist of her white sundress, her heart as blue as her sandals. Demi brushed the soft cotton smooth and sank into the plush first-class seat of the large aircraft bound for a week of honeymooning at Blissful Falls. She wished she could blink herself onto the secluded mountaintop and forgo the shame Kal poured on.

Kal claimed the seat next to hers, clicked into his seatbelt, and leaned toward her. Damn he smelled good. Powerful. He kissed her temple. “Hey now, lighten up.” Tender and patient fingers curled under her chin, lifting until she looked at him. His smile warmed her heart. “No one heard. Everyone’s busy getting situated.”

His words settled her racing pulse, and as the jet roared down the runway, Demi hooked her elbow with his. Resting her head on his shoulder, she held her left hand out in front of them and admired the glittery rose-gold bands on her finger. Honor, cherish, and obey until death do them part. She smiled up at the hunk of muscles sitting next to her.

Kal’s mischievous brown eyes twinkled down at her. In one hand, he held a rolled copy of Inner Peace drumming the thick cylinder-shaped tube detailing the rules of living as a submissive wife against his open palm. He winked. “Training begins now.”


And just what does “training” mean? Accept your invitation and find out!!!
