Kathryn R. Blake - Past Interference

Love and trust walk hand-in-hand, 
but fear can tear them apart.

I'm so happy to have Kathryn Blake here today. I've read Past Interference and it is an excellent book. I think this is one you will really like.


When Jerry Douglas asks Elly Benson to marry him, he wants their ceremony to be as close to Valentine's Day as possible. Though Elly tearfully accepts Jerry's proposal without hesitation, as she readies herself for her second wedding, the doubts and misgivings of any new bride-to-be are exacerbated by the abuse she suffered during her first marriage. When Elly recalls how quickly her uncertain stomach jitters grew into tight knots of pain on her wedding day, she also remembers how and why she'd fallen in love with and married Arthur, her first husband. A mistake she regrets more and more with each passing hour.

Though she's lived with Jerry for four months now, and been subject to his discipline more than once, her first husband had been kind and careful with her, too, in the beginning. At least until she vowed to love, honor and obey him. And their move to Corbin's Bend turned him from the strict, but caring husband she thought she'd married into a monster she no longer recognized.


When Elly seeks Jerry out at his vet clinic, but refuses to leave a message when she learns he's with a client, he returns home to check on her.

“What’s wrong?” Jerry asked with a glance at the strewn books before he rose to his feet and centered his gaze directly on her.
Elly groaned. The man was far too perceptive sometimes. “Nothing. I just thought I would drop by and check how you were doing.”
“Uh huh. Care to try that again, sweetheart?”
Her shoulders dropping, Elly confessed, “I think I’m getting another migraine.”
He crossed over and placed the back of his hand against her forehead. “Take anything for it?”
“No. Not yet. It only just started.” Okay, that was a lie, which would get her in even deeper trouble if he found out. She held still beneath his hand, but knew she was flushed, so she suspected he would be escorting her into the bathroom next.
He gave a brisk nod, then grabbed her hand. “Come with me.”
“Jerry,” she protested, but cut off her words with a grimace under his angry glare. Though he didn’t make taking her temperature a punishment, exactly. He did make it an exercise in obedience.
She stood in the bathroom while he retrieved the glass tube, shook it, and then liberally coated it with lubricating jelly. “Pants and panties down, now,” he ordered without looking at her.
With an inner groan, she obeyed and positioned herself over his knees when he sat on the toilet. They’d done this often enough after she’d been released from the hospital last October, so she should be used to it by now, but she never got over the way her former husband had punished her anally. Jerry questioned her almost every time they did this, but she was afraid he would decide an anal plug or a fig of ginger was an excellent way to get his point across, and she didn’t think she could willingly accept either of those punishments again.
She grimaced at the feel of thermometer sliding into her, but remained obedient and compliant. Jerry wasn’t trying to hurt or embarrass her. Not really. He was of the opinion that rectal temperatures were more accurate, so that’s what he used, and while they waited, he stroked her back and bottom to help her relax. Despite her uneasiness, his caresses calmed and centered her until she let out a soft sigh.

“Good girl,” he praised. “You always start out so tense when we do this, and yet you know I won’t hurt you, so I suspect it’s something Arthur did. We’re getting married in less than a week, Elly. Don’t you think it’s time you trusted me enough to tell me the truth?”

Lessons in Love is Kathryn R. Blake's sixth novel with Blushing Books, and fifth spanking romance where Domestic Discipline is primary to the plot.  Although Kathryn is relatively new to the spanking romance market, she is not new to stories where the hero spanks the heroine.  In fact, most of her novels have some sort of spanking in them.  However, even in Kathryn's novels where the hero firmly believes in using spanking as a deterrent, he has no desire to cause the heroine injury and takes no delight in hurting the woman of his heart.  In fact, sometimes he finds it extremely difficult to follow through on his threats or promises.
To date, all of her heroes are dominant, alpha males who are extremely protective of the women they love.  However, part of that protectiveness includes the need for a certain amount of control.  They do not suffer defiance or disobedience lightly. Even so, these men aren't infallible, and they do make mistakes, but love and respect will always triumph in the end.
Kathryn has been a member of RWA since the early 1980s and has joined several local and special interest chapters. Besides writing, Kathryn enjoys traveling, reading, attending the theatre, and is a passionate lover of animals, so much so that in 2015 a stray cat adopted her. The stray now sleeps in Kathryn's bed.  She has also recently taken up the expensive hobby of making and selling jewelry.
Her personal website, www.kathrynrblake.com, is filled with photos and links to information about her many interests as well as peppered with quizzes, contests, games and lots of other fun things to do and she loves to hear from her readers, so she has an e-mail link at the bottom of every page.

Now lets get to know Kathryn just a little better.

Are you working on a new book right now?

I think I'm always working on something, but the next new book I expect to publish is actually a prequel to my only BDSM novel, "A Dom's Dilemma." This is Kelly's introduction to BDSM through a Daddy Dom and age play.

What advice would you have for writers who decide to try their hand at erotica?

My first advice would be to read several books in the genre. If you don't enjoy reading the stories, you aren't going to enjoy writing them. So make sure it's a genre pool you feel comfortable playing in.

Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?

That we should learn from our past mistakes, but not let fear of making another mistake keep us from trying again. If you let fear rule your life, you'll end up stuck and unhappy.

Saturday Spanking - Comfort

I’m glad to be back at Saturday Spankings. It’s a busy time of year, end-of-grade testing, is consuming most of my time. But soon, very soon I’ll have my summer reading time. I need to fill my Kindle and this is the best place I know to do that.
I’m going back to the first Cassie book, Cassie’s Space, for today’s snippet. Cassie had received her forth speeding ticket in a two-year time span and Tom wasn’t happy. But while he’s fine with a firm spanking, he certainly doesn’t want Cassie uncomfortable…

“No excuses, girl, you put my wife in danger, I’ll not have that.”Tom reached to pull the hassock of our patio furniture over to his side before he took my hand and gently pulled me across his lap.
I find it almost funny, but not quite, how much care Tom takes to assure I’m comfortable during a spanking. He wanted the hassock to support my upper body. He usually spanks me sitting on the bed for the same reason. But after the careful furniture placement and gently getting me in the right position, he flipped up my skirt and began spanking with a hand that felt as hard as a two-by-four. Doesn’t he realize that my bottom attaches to the rest of me?

Kelly Dawson - Taking his Human Bride

Taking His Human Bride – by Kelly Dawson

I'm very happy to be hosting Kelly Dawson today. Taking his Human Bride sounds like a wonderful read and I feel you'll enjoy this book.

Author Bio:  

Kelly Dawson loves anything to do with horses, rodeos and cowboys, and loves to get lost in a good book - preferably one containing spanking!
A life-long closet-spanko, Kelly started writing spanking stories on every spare scrap of paper in the house as a child. So when she discovered the internet and spanking romance along with it, she was most excited. But it took her a good decade of devouring these stories before she got up the courage to submit her own. And now, here she is, 5 books later, with a plethora of ideas still to write!
She lives literally at the bottom of the world in the South Island of New Zealand, with her husband, four kids, a dog and a cat.

Buy Taking His Human Bride here: Amazon


Less than a day after two gruff military officers detain her and escort her to a government facility, Melissa Malone finds herself leaving the planet on a newly-built spacecraft heading for one of the moons of Jupiter. Unknown to most of the world, an asteroid is hurtling toward Earth and, due to her unrivaled computer skills, Melissa is one of a select group of people chosen to rebuild civilization should humanity prove unable to avert the approaching cataclysm.

Melissa’s situation rapidly goes from bad to much worse when the ship is attacked and the crew is easily overcome by what she can only assume are aliens. Melissa is taken captive along with everyone else, but while the others are to be sold as slaves, she quickly discovers that her captors have special plans for her. She is promptly stripped naked for an intimate, incredibly humiliating medical examination, and when she fails to do as she is told during the shameful procedure she is punished thoroughly, leaving much more than just her bare bottom burning hot and sore. Once she is deemed suitable, Melissa is given as a bride to a powerful officer named Damian.

Though she is horrified by the prospect of being taken as a wife by a man who makes it clear that he will expect her absolute submission and will sternly punish any defiance, Melissa soon learns that Damian has laid claim to her for a reason. He is on a mission, sent by the leaders of his world to infiltrate and bring to justice the band of renegades who took her captive… and he needs her help.

Despite her fury at Damian’s willingness to compel her obedience with a firm hand applied to her bare bottom, she cannot help delighting in the way her body responds to his touch, and his skillful, dominant lovemaking brings her to heights of passion she never imagined possible. But when the time comes for her to put her abilities to the test with the fate of the Earth on the line, can she outwit a rogue computer expert and prove that Damian’s trust in her was well placed?

Publisher’s Note: Taking His Human Bride is an erotic romance novel that includes spankings, sexual scenes, medical play, anal play, elements of BDSM, and more. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.


Shaking his head, Damian put more power behind the spanks this time, whacking her with nearly all of his considerable strength. He was baffled. How was she still so fiery when he was laying into her so hard? His hand was sore; her bottom must be throbbing and burning. And yet she continued to rebel, to defy him. His hand moved down to spank the tops of her thighs. Her entire bottom was a dark pink colour now with darker red splotches. He gritted his teeth as he continued his task. It wasn’t one he enjoyed, but it was necessary. She was his wife, his responsibility; he must teach her to obey.
Damian kept spanking her, willing her to stop fighting with every smack. Yet every time his hand landed she yelled anew, cursing him with filthy language he hadn’t heard in years, and some he hadn’t even heard at all. She was still fighting, struggling to get away, kicking her legs, arching her back, twisting her body. He had her wrists pinned and her legs trapped under his so she was secure, she couldn’t escape, but she was still trying. “Just stop fighting,” he whispered under his breath as he spanked first one cheek then the other, the outlines of his fingers making dark pink marks on her already-reddened skin. “Please just stop fighting!” he willed her desperately, landing another harsh blow in the middle of her bottom. He smacked her again, as hard as he could, in the exact same spot and that was when she finally broke. She went limp, laying across his lap sobbing uncontrollably, her shoulders shaking with the effort of trying to breathe through her sobs. He smacked her twice more for good measure, then stopped, resting his aching hand lightly on her scorched bottom, feeling the heat radiating off it. Releasing his hold on her wrists and legs he traced gentle circles on her back with his fingertips, soothing her.

Welcome to Katherine Deane - Cassie and the Fire Captain

Cassie and the Fire Captain

I'm so happy to be hosting Katherine Deane today. I enjoy reading about her Cassie very much - and who can resist a hot fireman? You need to give this one a read, Katherine is a very talented author!

Loading her arms with a huge handful of condoms, blown up into assorted animal shapes, Cassie turned to place some on the outer mirrors and the hoses.
A loud sound of a throat clearing behind her, halted her movements.
Turning with the leftover rubber piece in her arms, she turned to see the stern faces of five, rather large firemen.
“Hey, Cass, do you think we should draw a small penis on this one, and call it L—“ Paige stopped her comment, and froze in place, her face blanching. “J?” She reddened when she looked up into the eyes of her very angry boyfriend.
Several of the firefighters grinned from ear to ear at the prank, especially when they saw the huge sign with the anatomically incorrect drawing underneath it.
“Care to tell us what you’re up to, young ladies?” Eric’s disapproving voice rumbled from the side of the station, before the lights turned on.
She winced as the brightness over stimulated her senses. “Um, um, well…” her face heated at being caught red-handed. She looked down at the armful she carried. “They were having a sale at Walmart.” She swallowed nervously and grinned up at the other firemen who were trying hard not to smile. “Anyone want one? You can never be too safe these days.”
When twenty-four-year-old Cassie Stevens meets Eric Waters, her town’s hunky new fire captain, she assumes he is way out of her league. Cassie isn’t a beauty queen like her mother, and a mature, no-nonsense man like Eric would never be attracted to a fun-loving tomboy like her, especially considering her penchant for getting herself in trouble. So it comes as a shock when he stops by the diner where she works, steers her out of an altercation with some rude customers, and promptly asks her out on a date.

It doesn’t take Cassie long to realize that she has finally met the man of her dreams, and Eric seems to enjoy her sense of humor and playful ways. But after she pulls a foolish prank on him during their first date, he takes her over his knee for a spanking, and she quickly discovers how much a man’s firm hand can sting when applied to a naughty girl’s bare bottom.

Eric’s attention and affection make Cassie feel more loved than she has ever felt before, and despite her sore bottom, his discipline leaves her aroused and yearning to be his. But just as she’s about to give him her heart, it seems he’s no longer interested. Can Cassie put aside her fears and trust Eric, or will her doubts set off a chain of events which will tear their relationship apart?

Publisher’s Note: Cassie and the Fire Captain is an erotic romance novel that includes spankings, sexual scenes, and more. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.

Saturday Spanking - The truth is out

I love Saturday Spanking and I’ve been looking forward to posting this snippet from Cassie Corralled. I think most of us have wondered what would happen if we were completely and fully ‘outed’ to someone we cared about. Cassie’s about to find out.
Tom had given Cassie a thorough spanking for sneaking off to meet Janet. Later before dinner with the gang, Cassie learns some of Janet’s background that so shocked her she plopped down on the nearest seat only to leap back up in pain. Lily was definitely concerned and demanded to know what was wrong. Cassie tried to pass it off as old age, when Tom, to Cassie’s horror told Lily the whole truth. Lily is caught off guard and asked Tom to repeat himself. Both Cassie and Sue are furious with him.
I jerked away from Tom, I was too angry to hold his hand.
We were all still waiting for Lily to say something. She finally turning to me she said, “Look at me.”
I took a deep breath – stood up straight and even raised my chin a bit in defiance. I didn’t know what to expect. I didn’t want pity, I didn’t want shock, and I certainly didn’t want to see her looking like, ‘you got what was coming to you’. 
Her look was serious, nothing else, as she said to me, “Now let me understand this, he’s telling me he whipped your bottom until you’re hurting too bad to sit down good, and you ain’t mad about that, but you’re mad cause he told me?”
Suddenly I felt confused and tongue-tied.

I hope you’ll read Cassie Corralled to find out how all the men ended up explaining this lifestyle to Lily.
