What do you want to read?

What do you want to read?

That’s an important question for an author. Our genre is both unique and broad. ‘Spanking stories’ come in many different forms. They range from age-play to heavy BDSM, from regency to sci-fi. I’ve read wonderful books from all these different types. A good author’s talent and skill with the written word always comes through.

I feel that our genre is growing darker as time goes on. More to dungeons and cages and very heavy stuff. There is nothing wrong with that, I know for sure there is an audience for these writers. But it’s not what write and I what to know that there is still an audience for my writing – and most importantly, where and how to reach them.

I write what I think of as ‘realistic’ spanking stories. Things that could be happening with the couple next door to you – or to you! I want a love story behind the spankings – not just passionate sex (although that’s certainly fun) but I want to show love, caring, concern, gentleness, respect… that’s what I want in a story and that’s what I write.

You won’t find the graphic sex scenes in my books. My book are usually classified as ‘sweet romances.’ A description I dislike because it sounds like I’m writing for twelve-year-olds. All my characters have very active and passionate love lives – but I don’t feel you have to have an anatomy lesson and a lick by lick description each time. Some authors write this so well you’re panting as you finish reading it and calling your honey to come home early. But I can’t write it for you. I’m just going to assume you know how sex works, and I’ll go more for the emotions behind the scene.

Here are a couple of reviews from the first book in the Cassie’s Space series and the first in the Cal’s Law series. If this is your type book I hope you’ll leave a comment here or email me. It does help to know I have an audience.

Cassie’s Space:

ByJillie Don 

What I like about this book is that it is about old fashioned values mixed in with a feisty fun loving lady who does her utmost to outwit her loving, but very conservative, husband, who by the way, is well aware when his wife tries to talk her way out of a situation. Unfortunately Cassie's description and version of events is vastly different to Tom's interpretation and this leads to some 'over the knee' discussions!
A lovely story and some very funny tales of these two people who love each other dearly.

Cal’s Law:

I enjoyed this book very much. The characters are deep and the author did a great job of sharing their thoughts. The plot is focused on Jenny trying to get her life on track, but not necessarily making good decisions. I love how the author made her decisions seem reasonable at the time even when results were disastrous. Cal is a great character who takes on the role of mentor for Jenny. He's very set in his values with no grey area when it comes to right and wrong. The contrast with Jenny's way of thinking makes the story interesting. Kyle's character adds depth to the plot giving Jenny a little devil on her shoulder opposite Cal's angel, but Kyle wasn't the bad guy I expected him to be. I'm looking forward to the next book.

Saturday Spanking - Trying to understand

Welcome to a beautiful Fall Saturday Spankings! It’s going to be cold before we know it, so you need some curl up to the fire reading material. My snippet today is from Searching for Home, 4thin the Cal’s Law series. Jenny and Allie were attacked by burglars while cleaning. 

Allie’s brother, Drew, visits as they are recuperating and he’s still upset about seeing Ryan spanking his sister. He’s having a hard time understanding the concept. 

Drew seemed uneasy and didn’t have much to say. The concerned look in his eyes bothered Allie. “Drew, if you’re worrying about me, please stop. The only thing wrong with me is a few cracked ribs and they’ll heal. But don’t keep stressing about me and Ryan. You have to get over that.”
Drew glanced over at Jenny. “She knows?” he asked.
“First hand,” she told him with a grin. “Cal and I are as crazy as the rest of these guys. But it’s nothing for you to worry about.”
Drew looked stunned. Then said, shaking his head, “I feel like I’m in some altered dimension that I didn’t even know existed. Do all married couples do this?”
Before either girl could answer, they all heard a sharp, “No!” come from the kitchen as Lily voiced her thoughts. 
Both girls laughed. Then Allie went on, “Drew, this is private and we don’t want you telling anyone. Will you promise me that?”
“I’m not telling anyone,” he answered.
“Look at all of us here on The Landing. We all have wonderful marriages and most of us,” she raised her voice slightly for Lily’s sake, “have this kind of marriage. Please stop worrying.”

Libby Campbell - Bound to the Past

Bound to the Past 
The Lighthouses of Devmaer, prequel

Libby Campbell

Love is tough. Tough enough to last a long and painful separation.

Here's Libby Campbell again with another great book!

 Buy link: Amazon

Available free for a limited time here

Freja, rescued from the flesh markets of Silvelea at a young age, has learned firsthand how difficult life is for orphan girls on the planet of Devmaer. Her “rescue” landed her in the harsh world of Matron Cass Warren’s Girls Crib, where young girls are groomed to be sold off as mates to the highest bidder as soon as they reach maturity.
At eighteen Freja was drawn to Déak Ryba, the first man to ever show her kindness. But he didn’t stand a chance against Iwon Sándor’s money and power. Iwon claimed Freja’s hand, condemning her to a miserable life of abuse and neglect. 
After three long-suffering years, Freja’s matehood was cut short by his untimely death.
For the first time in her life Freja finds herself free - free to work like a slave to repay the staggering debts Iwon left her. During her final ritual as his widow, a freak accident sweeps her out to sea and remarkably, right back into Déak’s arms.
Can the love that Déak and Freja once shared possibly have survived long years of separation? Will they finally claim the shared life that was denied them? Or will their happiness be stolen again by the sinister forces circling at the edge of their lives?
This novella is a prequel to Bound To The Admiral,book 1 inThe Lighthouses of Devmaer series. It introduces the alien world of the planet Devmaer as well as some of the minor characters. 
While it is a part of a series, it has a satisfying ending and can be read as a standalone.
Bound to the Pastis a second chance, fantasy-world romance. Along with a happily-ever after ending, it has some very steamy scenes, including elements of power exchange and discipline.

Déak had done it again. He’d pushed all the right buttons. Somehow, he’d sensed Freja’s darkest secrets. He’d bought them out in the open where the sunshine and warmth of his affection was making them evaporate.
She’d never felt freer or happier than that minute when she was positioning herself across his lap again. Her upper torso draped over one side of his powerful thighs, leaving her arms, head, hair dangling. Her nude bottom was raised to the sky and her toes didn’t reach the ground behind her. 
The first and only time she’d been spanked before, Déak had left her clothes on and discretely exposed only her bottom. There was no such barrier between them now. The rawness of her nudity thrilled her.
This was only the second time in her life she’d lifted her backside to sunlight and felt the natural heat that nothing else could imitate. She’d forgotten how exciting it was to offer up a part of herself like a human sacrifice. Her pulse raced with a heady mixture of fear and eager anticipation. Déak’s hand circled one buttock and then the other. The sensation calmed her.
When he pushed her thighs apart, she didn’t resist. Nor did she tense when his fingers opened her nether lips and circled her clitoris before dipping into her pussy. 
“You are so ready for this, aren’t you My Innocent? But remember, while today you can call stop at any point.” Two fingers plunged into her, thrusting gently as he spoke. “That is not an option you will have every time I spank you. Make sure you use it wisely, if at all.”
He stopped caressing her and his hand lifted and began to rise and fall in gentle strokes. Freja shivered happily at the pleasant tattoo. She liked being free like this, giving the power of decision-making to Déak. He knew what she wanted. More importantly, he knew what she needed. Freja had no doubt.
As if reading her mind, he stopped and pushed her thighs even farther apart. He smacked her pussy lips softly. “This jewel, this velvet crease, it should have been mine for the past four years, shouldn’t it?”
She murmured something even she didn’t understand. It was an animal noise, a sound that indicated agreement. 
“I didn’t hear you,” he said and punctuated his words with a sound slap to her bottom, the most painful since he’d started.
“Um. Yes. Yes, sir.” 
“Yes sir, what?” He slapped the inside of her thighs so hard, she whimpered.
“Yes, sir. It should have been yours for the past four years.”

Libby Campbell in her own words:

My romance novels feature strong, self-reliant women and the powerful men who love them. Romantic by nature, I write the stories I want to read: those that feature a spicy power exchange and deliver a sting in the tale.

Canadian by birth, I also lived in Australia for a couple of decades. While living there I overcame my aversion to saucer-sized spiders and, as a condition of marriage to my Aussie Prince Charming, I swore a lifelong allegiance to the Melbourne Football Club. 
Then family called and my husband and I packed up and moved. We now live on a rocky island on Canada’s West Coast, close to beaches that once were frequented by smugglers and rumrunners.

My passions are reading and writing. I adore all animals and love hiking, beachcombing, and an occasional night of dancing.

Question and answers with Libby Campbell

Why fantasy?

I wanted to create a new world, in some ways a gentler one. I read lots of fantasy and decided to seek adventure in lands of my own making.

In some ways it’s really freeing to be in a world where I make the rules. But then I have to remember them all! So the freedom is curtailed by the demands of continuity.

What was your inspiration for Bound to the Past?

I wrote this book as a gift to readers. I wanted to invite them into the alien world of Devmaer, to meet some of the wonderful characters who live there. 

Of course, the ocean is involved. One of favorite almost-daily things to do is walk the rocky beaches near my home. It was on one of those walks that this story started to take shape.

What happens both below and above the waves interests me. This is the first time in any of my books that any of the action is underwater.

Saturday Spankings - Ready?

Saturdays seem to roll around extremely fast these days. I’m glad you’re here. I’m back with another snippet from Searching for Home. Jenny survived the spanking with Cal’s newly made paddle and now they are hidden away in a hotel where they can make all the noise they like. Jenny plans to make use of every second she can!

“You’re the most incredible woman in the world. Do you realize that?” he asked.
“Of course I do,” she answered happily. “Nothing but the best for my husband!”
Fifteen minutes later, Jenny sat up, straddling Cal. “Are you ready to go again?”
“Damn, Jen, I can’t recover that fast. You’re going to kill me.”
“That’s not a problem, you have life insurance, don’t you?” she asked, sweetly.
Cal raised his hand and popped her sore ass, twice. “You let me get my breath back and you’re going to pay for your sassiness, young lady.”
Jenny laughed as she tried to rub away the sting. “Big talk, sheriff!” she jeered at him.
“Okay, that’s it,” Cal told her, leaving the bed. “You’re going to pay.” He reached into a small duffel bag, bringing out two sets of Velcro cuffs.”

Sales Blurb
He wants a lady of quality on his arm, a mistress in his bed, and a princess to pamper.

When the time’s right. When he’s ready. When he finds her. But not yet. Lord Anthony Kendrick has obligations he fulfills daily but there is one he has yet to address; finding a wife and begetting heirs. All in due time. Without warning, he discovers the very woman he has been waiting for in his drawing-room, and she needs what he can offer. If he were ready and if she were to agree. 

Lady Genevieve Jacobson does not want to marry now, if ever. Her relatives disagree and pressure her to accept the offer of a man thirty years her senior. As the eldest, she is obligated to marry before her sister. Ginny refuses to comply. Suddenly her freedom and her very life is at stake. She must make some dangerous choices if she is to have any say in her future happiness. 

When Kendrick finds Ginny has taken matters in her own hands and put herself in mortal danger, he decides the time is right to claim her. Even if she doesn’t agree.

This is book four in the Lords and Little Ladies series but reads as a standalone.

Publisher’s Note: This historical romance contains elements of mystery, suspense, action, adventure, power exchange, and sensual scenes. If any of these offend you, please do not purchase

 “What has you so disturbed, Lady Jacobson?”
Startled, Genevieve squealed in protest, her hand went to her bosom. “Oh, Lord Kendrick, you frightened me. It was not good of you, sir.” Her chastisement, firm. 
Kendrick stared at her hand on her chest before raising his eyes to hers. “My deepest apologies. I thought you heard me approach. I made sufficient noise.” His apology sounded a bit like scolding. “One must be aware of one’s environ, milady.” 
“I was deep in thought as one often is when taking a walk.” Her response had a hint of censure in answer to his scolding. 
“I believe you are trying to best me. It is not polite.” One couldn’t miss the twinkle in his eye and the twitch of his lips. 
“I am merely mimicking your mannerisms, milord. As a visitor in your home, I would take my cues from you.” 
“Touché,” he said with a nod and the hint of a smile. “I believe we are well enough known to each other that you can safely call me Kendrick when we are informal.” 
“Kendrick then. Thank you. And I am Genevieve.” 
He nodded his agreement. “Not Ginny then?” 
“No, I am trying to add maturity to my presentation. Ginny negates that outcome.” 
“I’m not sure I agree but it is your name. What were your thoughts earlier?” 
“Nothing really. I’m to decide on a mate regardless of my own personal desires and it has me quite flummoxed.” What she had disclosed made her eyes widen. He never faltered. 
“Indeed. I thought that the expectation of all young ladies.” 
“Expectation, yes. Desire, not always. I am not one who desires it. You see, I have considered those who have wandered into my sphere but have found them inadequate for my personal needs. They are too old, too young, too immature, too light in the pockets or too under their parent’s thumb. But there was one characteristic they all seemed to share; they were boring. I believe I deserve entertainment if I must endure all else.” 

Alyssa Bailey

USA Today and #1 International best-selling author of historic and contemporary romances, Alyssa Bailey, is a dyed in the wool Texan living amongst the beauty of Southeast Alaska. Along with her husband, she lives where the sky meets the rainforest; the forest meets the mountains that touch the ocean, and the wildlife frolic on land, sea, and air. Humans, the ultimate interlopers, are wedged in where allowed and are properly thankful for the privilege.

Alyssa loves writing realistic romance for the naughty in all of us. She takes from her own experiences, often scrambling events from her life with her imagination, ensuring the fictitious worlds she creates seem real and draw you in.

 She loves writing power exchanges between strong, intelligent, sassy women who are not afraid to make a stand and loving men confident enough to give his woman space, but Alpha enough to keep her safe despite her choices is a common theme and of course, there’s always a happily ever after.  

If she can throw a little humor, or suspense in her stories, it’s even better. Her characters live amongst historical lords and ladies, in the contemporary realm amongst men and women of the world, and of course, hard-working cowboys and fiercely romantic Indians.
