Saturday Spanking - New Year's Edition










The fireworks are not just for the new year but finally, A Cowboy's Love has been released.  I think Santa might have had something to do with it because I received notice on Christmas Eve.

Now that Christmas is over and the New Year starts tomorrow, I want to begin the year off right by thanking everyone who comes by to read and comment. It tickles me when I read the comments and see the number of visits rise.

Now, I have to get back to work.  A Cowboy's Love is set in Arizona in the late 1800's. My husband and I were on a trip during the summer and driving through to Sedona, I was inspired by the terrain and the unusual names of some of the towns.  After some research, because I am a history nut, I found myself thinking about what it would have been like to live there back then and before I knew it, I was writing this story. The background cover is actually a photo I took while on the trip.



Annabelle Steele, highborn into Philadelphia Society, becomes engaged to another member of Philadelphia’s elite aristocracy.  Both sets of parents are thrilled with the influential match until Jameson Henry Bartlett’s real character is revealed.


Rather than be subjected to the man’s further depravity, Annabelle takes matters into her own hands and plans her getaway.  She accepts a teaching position in San Francisco and clandestinely makes her escape as Grace Callahan.
Fate intervenes, and her travel plans are thwarted when her stagecoach overturns and she is left stranded in the Arizona Territory.  Marsh Tucker discovers the accident and takes Ms. Callahan and the other survivors to the Winding Creek Ranch.
At first, Marsh Tucker thinks Ms. Callahan is nothing but a young spoiled society brat and treats her with disdain. Grace Callahan believes Marsh Tucker is nothing but a brute and bully after he takes her over his knee and gives her the spanking he thinks she so richly deserves.  They’re both wrong.

This snippet is from the very beginning of the story. Marsh Tucker comes across an overturned stagecoach and finds Grace Callahan.

Marsh felt the woman's wrist for a pulse and was suddenly taken back when she let out a terrifying scream.
"Calm down Miss, I'm here to help. Are you hurt?"

He looked into eyes filled with fright and when she looked at him it was as if he were the devil himself. She then looked down at herself and seemed surprised she was in one piece. She shook her head.

He spotted a cloud of dust indicating that rider were heading his way...but as they came closer, he realized they were friends.

The girl screamed when she saw the Indians. Telling her not to worry didn't help - she continued yelling hysterically. Finally, he pulled her down into his arms, cradling her trembling body. He stroked her back over and over as he continued saying the same words.

Saturday Spankings






One week until Christmas - how did that happen?   From what I hear on the news, many of you on this side of the pond are suffering through horrible cold.  Even here in AZ we're experiencing cooler than normal temps but no ice or snow.

Sometime before Christmas arrives,  "A Cowboy's Love" will be available for sale.You know Amazon, you get a moments notice but as soon as the links are available, I'll give a heads up.

Saturday Spankings



Instead of the usual Saturday Spankings logo, I thought I'd change it up a bit and offer this picture instead.  I love this picture  - it conveys sexiness, a caring man lovingly pulling down her panties.  Can you feel her anticipation of what's to come? Her calm demeanor denotes trust even though he is going to spank her bottom.


Here in the good ole USA, Thanksgiving is over and we're heading toward Christmas.  It's not even a month away now.  Are you ready?  If not I have a suggestion that might help.  Home for Christmas sets the tone and will put you in the Christmas mood.

Home for Christmas: Bonnie Baxter and Mitch Ryder are the main characters in this story of two people who were not looking for love, but it found them nonetheless.  Fun and fireworks along the way.


Christmas Surprise: Lily Rose Billings from Finding Love at the Trail's End remarries. Luke Benson loved Lily Rose before they even met and this is the story of how they work their way into love and life, Some valuable lessons are taught and learned.

I've been bouncing back and forth giving snippets of each story in the book.  I think this week, it's Christmas Surprise's turn.

We left off with Lily Rose being told to apologize to her neighbor for her rude behavior. Luke has threatened Lily and follows her into the house when she refuses to apologize.

"Lily Rose, you get in the bedroom now.  Bare your backside and lay across the bed."

"Oh poo." Luke heard her say as she flounced away...Later, he entered the bedroom and was shocked to see Lily Rose, bared and waiting for him.  Orders didn't set well with her.

"I know why I'm getting whipped, so spare me the lecture and just get on with it."  Luke was trying very hard to control his snicker.  He might be better off giving her mouth a dose of some hot pepper sauce, too.

"Hands under the pillow now and no squirming around," he ordered.

"Or what, you'll whip me harder."

"That's all the sass I'm going to take."  He removed his razor strop from the wall peg and Lily heard it swish through the air.

Saturday Spankings





Saturday Spankings is a forum for promoting our books - we get to showcase our works - old or new by presenting a synopsis, a blurb and buy links.  This week, I'm promoting my latest Christmas release.  




Home for Christmas: Bonnie Baxter and Mitch Ryder are the main characters in this story of two people who were not looking for love, but it found them nonetheless.  Fun and fireworks along the way.


Christmas Surprise: Lily Rose Billings from Finding Love at the Trail's End remarries. Luke Benson loved Lily Rose before they even met and this is the story of how they work their way into love and life, Some valuable lessons are taught and learned



The blurb I'm featuring is from the first story, Home For Christmas. Mitch Ryder has picked up hitchhiker, Bonnie Baxter.  As they ride along, after she tells him her story, he finds himself trusting her.

"I can't believe I'm saying this, but Sam seems to trust you.  I have a little house not far from the ranch where I work.  If you want, you're welcome to stay there until you figure out what to do and where to go.  I'm probably more like your dad than your stepbrother, so you don't have to worry about me bothering you."

She giggled.  "So you'd be more likely to take me over your knee than take me to bed.

"Yeah, that sounds about right, although I could be inclined to do both, depending on the situation."  

It was his turn to chuckle as he watched a blush overtake her face.

Saturday Spankings


I know that not everyone who comes to visit here is from this side of the pond/world, but here in the USA it's been one helluva week.  Things have come to pass that never seemed imaginable and yet, here they are.

Finding a good book and burying your head in the story seems like it's a must right now.  I have a suggestion for you, and my fellow authors listed below have suggestions too. Immerse yourself in fantasy.

Home for Christmas: Bonnie Baxter and Mitch Ryder are the main characters in this story of two people who were not looking for love, but it found them nonetheless.  Fun and fireworks along the way.

Christmas Surprise: Lily Rose Billings from Finding Love at the Trail's End marries Luke Benson. As they work their way into love and life, some valuable lessons are taught and learned.




BLURB:  Christmas Surprise: Lily Rose is used to waking up to fresh coffee and a warm fire blazing.Today, there's no coffee, warm fire or her husband.  She trudges outdoors looking for him and finds him in the barn, visiting with a friend. She confronts Luke.


"What's the matter?  he asks.  Hands on hips Lily replies.  "You scared the hell out of me, it's later than usual, there's no coffee and no fire.  I thought something must have happened."

His friend snickered.  "I told ya you were spoiling her Luke, Now see what happens"
"You be quiet Billy Hanson and mind your own business, Lily Rose told him.
"That's no way to talk to our friend, now tell him you're sorry."
"In a pig's ear," she said and turned leaving the barn.

Luke caught up and told her they needed to talk.  "If it's about Billy, I am not apologizing. No one asked him to butt in or give his opinion.  

You will apologize; it just a matter if you do it before the hiding or after."

Saturday Spankings





Wow - here I am on Saturday Morning - it's been so long I actually had to fill-in my info instead of it just popping up automatically.  That's what happens when you're on a sabbatical and don't have a new book out since last March.  I am in awe of my fellow authors that produce a new book every month to six weeks - I don't know how you do it, but my hat's off to you.

I have been writing, just not quite as prolific as others.  In addition to Home For Christmas, I'll have another book coming out sometime in late December.  Today I'm featuring Home for Christmas -.a collection of two western romance stories.


Home for Christmas: Bonnie Baxter and Mitch Ryder are the main characters in this story of two people who were not looking for love, but it found them nonetheless.  Fun and fireworks along the way.

Christmas Surprise: Lily Rose Billings from Finding Love at the Trail's End marries Luke Benson. As they work their way into love and life, some valuable lessons are taught and learned.




BLURB:  Home for Christmas - Bonnie Baxter is running away to anywhere and Mitch Ryder is on his way home and offers to give her a ride.

And they settled back into silence as he pulled out of the rest stop.  A little further down the road, he noticed traffic – unusual, so he started to slow down.  


“Must be an accident or something ahead.”
“Looks that way.”

As they got closer, they could see it was a road block.  There were several police cars with blinking lights on both sides of the road.  He thought he noticed a bit of edginess to Bonnie’s behavior.  The closer they got to the checkpoint, the more nervous she seemed to become.

“Is there something I should know before we go any further?
“I don’t know, is there?”
“Don’t go getting smartmouthed with me.  Are they looking for you?”
He watched as a shudder seemed to ripple through her body. “Not sure, maybe?”
“Have you done anything illegal?”
“No,”
“Are you sure?  I don’t want any trouble.”
“No, I haven’t done anything illegal.  I only took what was mine.”

Keeping the romance (and spanking) alive after marriage

A visit with Cara Bristol

Traditionally, romance novels have been written about single people looking for love. They find it, get married, and that’s the last we hear about them. We can only assume they found their Happily Ever After.

Boy meets girl. Boy loses girl. Boy gets girl.

But that’s not really the end of the story.  Romance can continue after marriage, and the ups and downs of making a life with a person provides a wealth of story fodder. Marriage is a roller coaster, and one can get the girl, then lose the girl, even though there’s a ring around her finger. When you’re dating, you work to create romance – you plan special dates, you surprise each other with little gifts, you dress up, you treat each other well. To keep the romance going, that should continue to occur after the wedding!

I like writing romances about married couples because it gives me leeway as an author. I don’t have to wait for the couples to get to know each other before they can have sex. And in spanking romance, where trust and consent are required for spanking, it helps if the couple are married or in a long-term relationship.

Domestic Discipline offers two romances about two married couples.

Domestic Discipline 

Love, desire, domination, and submission. Two domestic discipline romances by USA Today bestselling author Cara Bristol in one volume.

Wife on the Lam -Janelle wants to take a luxury vacation for her wedding anniversary. Despite numerous hints, husband Brent misses all the clues and plans a business trip! Miffed, she flies off alone to a luxury resort. She’s going to celebrate—with or without him.
Brent didn’t have to work. He’d planned a second honeymoon to the luxury Cabana Resort. Janelle might have ruined his surprise, but he’s not going to let her ruin their anniversary, too. He has a little trick up his sleeve to take his errant wife in hand and get their marriage back on track.
                                  AND
Rahm’s Way -Before her military husband left for his tour of duty, Cadence Simmons relied on Rahm’s love, direction, and protection. His absence forced her to become more independent and make decisions for herself. After serving his country, he’s home for good and eager to resume their marriage as it was before. Only Cadence isn’t quite sure she wants things exactly as they were. Can domestic discipline guide this couple through some major changes.



What do you think are the advantages or disadvantages to having the hero and heroine already married? Do you like reading about married couples? Why or why not?

EXCERPT FROM WIFE ON THE LAM, Domestic Discipline
Sitting on the bed in his underwear, Brent could hear Janelle singing in the shower. Then the water shut off, the hair dryer ran for a while, and then she pranced out wearing the scandalous suit and a seductive smile.
He twirled his hand. “Let’s see the back.”
She spun around. The thong disappeared in her crack, completely baring her apple-red ass cheeks. She faced him again. “You don’t think it’s too skimpy?”
“Not for what I have in mind,” he said. The curve of her lips widened.
“Let me clean up.” He headed into the bath before her come-hither look could work on him.
When he emerged from the shower, he found Janelle readying for an afternoon swim. She had towels rolled and had gathered up her e-reader and his, sunblock, the camera, and a couple bottles of water. Her poor ass glowed red. “Do you prefer the beach or the pool?” She faced him.
“Neither. At least not right now.” He hitched his towel more firmly around his waist and padded to the bed. He sat on the mattress, and patted his knee. “Over here, sweetheart.”
She widened her eyes before her face crumpled with dismay. “B-But, I thought…I figured when we got home…” she trailed off.
He shook his head. He’d always meted out discipline as soon as possible, believing in the importance of prompt punishment. “We need to put this matter behind us. You won’t enjoy yourself if you spend the entire vacation worrying about being spanked.”
“Then don’t spank me.” Her eyes held a plea. “I learned my lesson.”
“As uncomfortable as the horseback ride may have been, having a bad time doesn’t count as discipline. You ignored my feelings by taking off without any explanation. We’re partners, Janelle. I don’t check out of our marriage when I don’t get what I want.”
Her lower lip quivered, and she hung her head. “I’m really sorry.”

I'M STILL HERE

I have neglected this blog for far too long. - It's just time to put up a post, any kind of post.

I haven't had a new book released since late March.  I'm not complaining. To have a book published, you actually have to write it first and I've not done much of that lately.  I am working on a story and have been since late March but it hasn't progressed too far. New books and new writers are appearing every day and I wonder what I could possibly write that hasn't been written before.

I started this blog to promo my books, especially the new ones.  Here I am even stuck trying to finish this post - my writing muse seems to be on summer vacation.

I still have a job to do as I'm the marketing person, so until my writing muse returns, here's a reminder of what's is available.
