Look Who's visiting me today - Lucy Appleby!


Hi Lucy, welcome to my blog!



Delighted to have a spot on your blog, Constance. Thanks for having me here to give my latest Western an airing. I'm a sucker for a handsome cowboy and had great fun writing this period piece which contains romance, spankings, a feisty woman and a big hunky cowboy.


Mail Order Mary features the spirited Mary Ashton. Set in 1876, the story begins in Victorian England with Sir Henry Ashford informing Mary that he has arranged for her to marry the wealthy (and odious) Marquess of Stirling. Unhappy with her lot, she ponders her escape, and when the opportunity arises to take the place of Ruby Fairweather on board a steamship destined for America, she takes it, with the knowledge that Ruby had been corresponding with Isaiah Bean, a handsome young American man advertising for a wife. 


But on arriving in America, Mary's fortunes take a turn for the worse. She is robbed of all her money and has to sell her fine gowns to fund the remainder of her journey to Montana, where she will have to be reliant on the charity of Isaiah Bean. However, when she finally finds Isaiah, she is sorely disappointed. It is Nathan Miller who comes to her aid - a giant of a man with a kind heart and smouldering good looks. He takes her home to White Tail Ranch, and her life changes forever – and at this part the real fun starts, because Mary is not used to doing as she is told, and it isn't long before sparks fly between her and Nathan - and the big cowboy shows he is not averse to putting her over his knee for a spanking to help motivate her into behaving better. A complete novice at cooking and cleaning, Mary has several mishaps, and sorely tests Nathan's patience. But as time goes by, the attraction between Nathan and Mary grows. He saves her life and she his, and for the first time ever, Mary feels she belongs somewhere - and to someone.



Mail Order Mary is available from LSF Publications and Amazon.

Thanks for having me, Constance, and I wish you and your readers happy holidays, happy reading, and lots of good things for 2015. 


You're welcome to visit me any time Lucy :)

I have Tara Finnegan and His Forever Summer for the Corbin's Bend Blitz! So excited!



Blurb:
Carla Methon has tread on a lot of toes, men’s and women’s alike. But no one could be more dissatisfied with Carla than the lady herself. With a compunction to throw herself at every man within a three mile radius and a serious case of foot in mouth disease, Carla knows she is in desperate need of being taken in hand before she does any more damage to her reputation.

Kieran O’Brien needs to escape a broken relationship and he invites himself to spend a summer with his brother in Corbin’s Bend. But Kieran is a totally unsuspecting vanilla with no idea of the ethos of the community he is about to enter.

The pair strike up an unlikely friendship of vanilla and spice, with one stipulation – it is only a summer fling. By the time Kieran boards his flight to return to Ireland he wishes his summer could last forever. Can he find the courage, not only to admit the extent of his feelings, but to take on the role Carla so desperately needs him to be?

Excerpt 1 - sexy

“Bedroom, now. And that’s an order.” He could get to like this being in charge caper, he thought as Carla scuttled off. Carla was stripping her clothes as fast as she could. He stood appreciating the sight. He liked that her bottom was still a nice rich pink, although much faded already. He idly mused on the lack of guilt he had about it now, compared to that first time. 

“It’s torture time, babe. Lie on your back, spread-eagled,” he warned, giving her an evil smile. He fished in her underwear drawer to find some pantyhose or something stretchy to tie her with. He had an idea they might stretch to the four corners of the bed. “Bingo, it works, although your pantyhose will never be useable again. It was time you switched to stockings and a garter belt anyway. They’re much sexier.” 

“You never cease to amaze me, Kieran O’Brien. And here I was thinking you were such a prude for so long.”

“Ah, just because I hadn’t discovered the joys of spanking, doesn’t mean I wouldn’t like a bit of hot, naughty sex. Let me see, a blindfold I think. Remember, call Methon if I’m making you uncomfortable.”

“I’m good so far. There are scarves in the third or fourth drawer.” 

“I need to go to the kitchen for a moment, do you want me to untie you, or are you okay?”

“It’s fine. I could get out of these if I had to. It’s hot to think of you leaving me lying here like this. Blindfold me before you go.” He found couple of scarves, folded one over and tied it around her head. Another silk scarf he set aside for other uses. Her breathing was labored. Arousal was shimmering off her like a halo. Her face and neck were flushed. She looked so hot. And he had just the thing to cool her down. He ran to the kitchen, got ice from the freezer and clothes pegs from the laundry hamper. The fun was about to begin. When he returned, he started out by doing a survey of her body. “Someone’s a dirty slut. I see a pink face, hard nipples and a very wet pussy. You’re enjoying this too much. I had better cool you down.”He had the pleasure of seeing Carla fight her restraints and buck her hips. He put an ice cube in his mouth and then put his mouth around one erect nipple. Already peaked and sensitive, the ice made it much harder. She really had the most beautiful tits – all nipple. So much fun to play with. He moved to the other bud. When they were both hard and attentive, he crunched and swallowed the ice. Then he took the silk scarf and trailed it along her breasts. The soft, warm fibre gently teasing urged a whimper from her mouth. Next he took a clothespeg, rolled one nipple between his finger and thumb and attached the peg. 

“Ouch,” Carla protested.

Come and Join me for Saturday Spankings!



Hi everyone. Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends. Today I'm going to share a snippet again from The One She LOVES. This week I'm going to continue on from where the last snippet ended.







Crystal was much taller and had no problem wrestling even a struggling Carol over her knee. “I tried to talk to you.” Crystal emphasized every word with a sharp smack on Carol’s bare behind. “I have to tell you though, missy, if you can’t act like an adult, I don’t even want to discuss having another baby now.” 

“Ow, you’re hurting me!” Carol kicked her legs and wriggled in her effort to escape her girlfriend’s stinging hand. 

“Did you tell me to make you?” Crystal asked, slapping Carol’s rosy cheeks. 


Blurb:

Carol and Crystal love the lives they share in Corbin's Bend with their nine year old daughter, Brianna. Carol is a taken in hand bundle of fun but she is not a Susie homemaker. Their house is often times a mess. She'd rather spend time living life than cleaning. She loves Crystal and Brianna and she loves spending time with her friends. She often finds herself over her girlfriend's knee for a bare bottomed spanking for getting her priorities wrong.

Crystal is a fire-fighter and the head of their loving home. She's fit, neat and organized. Apart from her career, Carol and Brianna are her world, and while she knows friendships are important, she feels somewhat threatened by how much her girl shares with her friends and not with her.

When Carol decides she wants a baby, it throws their house into a spin. Crystal isn't sure and wants to wait. When Carol's three naughty friends from Leading the Way (4th in the Corbin's Bend Series) see how disappointed their friend is, they help the young mom go on a sperm search with hilarious results. Only problem is, Crystal knows nothing about their hijinks. Can a punishment fix this mess? Or will what Crystal sees as disloyalty, tear them apart?

Time for Saturday Spankings!



Good morning Saturday Spankers! Today I'm going to share from my latest book, the fourth in the second season of Corbin's Bend, The One She LOVES! This is the story of Carol and Crystal.





The first part of this snippet can be seen here on the Corbin's Bend blog. This snippet follows directly after.




Being the head of a domestic discipline relationship wasn’t always easy. She wanted Carol to be her own person and know that she could have her say, but sometimes you had to take a stand. If you couldn’t get to the bottom of something one way, it was time to get there another. “Get out.” Crystal folded her arms and narrowed her eyes. 

“Make me.” 

And sometimes you were issued a challenge that was just too tempting to ignore. She saw Carol’s eyes widen and she clutched the bedding to her throat in an effort to suck back that last statement. “Too late little girl,” she said, snatching the bedclothes and dragging them away. 


“Stop, Cryssy. I’m sorry!” Carol wailed.

Learning To Be Little Again with Meredith O'Reilly!




A little Thanks!Hi Constance! I just wanted to say thank you so much for having me on your blog! I can’t believe that Learning to be Little Again has come out! It feels like yesterday I was just starting to write it. Again, thank you for having me come visit your blog! ☺


You're always welcome Melody. Good luck with your new release!



Blurb


Twenty four year old Juliana once loved being a little, until the cruelty of the man she had called daddy broke her heart and she decided to never be little again. But when she fails to take care of herself and becomes ill, a worried friend brings her to Dr. Robert O’Connor, claiming that he will understand what she needs. Juliana is embarrassed and nervous, but to her surprise, Robert gives her a teddy bear and tells her a fairy tale to help her relax. Though the exam is intimate and thorough, Juliana feels safe the whole time and hopes afterwards that she’ll see more of the handsome doctor.


From the moment Robert heard about Juliana’s past, he wanted nothing more than to take away her pain and make sure she never has to worry about anyone hurting her again. He is thrilled when he asks her out and she shyly agrees. Though Juliana claims she doesn’t want to be a little anymore, he longs to prove to her that age play with him is nothing to fear. Robert is a patient man, and before long Juliana is calling him “daddy”, playing with her dolls, and coloring. He delights in taking care of her every need, dressing her in footie pajamas, and brushing her hair. Even when Juliana is disobedient and Robert has to put his baby girl over his knee and spank her bare bottom, it is always followed by plenty of loving hugs and cuddles.



Soon Juliana is eating more and sleeping better, and feels healthier than she has in a long time. But when the man who once abused her skips bail and threatens to hurt her if she continues to see her new daddy, she becomes terrified. Will she ever be free to relax in her daddy’s arms, knowing he will keep his little girl safe from everything and love her no matter what?



Publisher’s Note: Learning to be Little Again is a stand-alone sequel to Little Samantha’s Choice. It is an erotic romance novel that contains spankings, age play, medical play, anal play, sexual scenes, elements of BDSM, and more. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.

Snippet (This is when Juliana goes a little early to her doctor’s appointment with Mark. She’s very nervous, especially because she knows that Dr. Robert will be treating her.) 


I walked into the doctor’s office with Mark right behind me. I was so anxious for this appointment that I felt like I was going to be sick. I was all set to turn around and tell Mark I was sorry, but that I was not going to do this, when suddenly I spotted the coolest thing I’ve ever seen. Across the waiting room there was a huge aquarium filled with colorful fish!


Walking over to it, I immediately looked at all of the fish inside. After a few seconds, I noticed that the fish matched the fish that were in Dr. Sherman’s office in Finding Nemo. I greeted each fish by name and just watched as they swam around. I was so enthralled with my new discovery that I didn’t hear Mark or his doctor friend come up behind me.


“I’m glad that you like the fish, Juliana. Very few people actually recognize what movie they’re from.”


My focus left the fish and the ball of panic that had disappeared when I saw the fish came back, but this time it felt twice as big. I just stood there, not wanting to move.


“Juliana, aren’t you going to turn around and say hello?” Mark asked, and I could tell by the sound of his voice that he was getting frustrated.

I was about to turn around when I felt Robert’s presence by my side.


“It’s alright, Mark. I can understand why looking at fish is more appealing than saying hi to me. Look at Bloat. He’s such a silly fish,” Robert said, pointing to the glass as Bloat did what looked like a summersault. Robert and I watched the fish together for a little longer until he finally said, “As much fun as this is, I think it’s time that we get that exam started.”


I slowly turned to face him and Mark, and I just nodded.

Saturday Spankings!



Hi everyone, happy Saturday! Today I'm going to share a different scene from Monkey Business. Next week I'll move on to share my latest Corbin's Bend story, The One She LOVES, my first F/F.


In this piece, Summer and Ben are a couple and Summer is about to get her very first bare spanking.






“You want me naked?” Oh lord, she didn't want the first time he saw her naked to be like this. 

“Yes. You're a grown up girl about to get a grown up spanking. I want you naked.”

Oh how she'd longed to hear those words, just not quite in that context. Her hands trembled against the hem of the shirt for a second. “Couldn't you do it for me?”

“No. I want you to do as you're told.” 

Summer took a deep breath, yanked the t-shirt over her head, practically threw herself over his knee, all the time trying to keep her legs together. A warm hand rested on her lower back and it calmed her a little, until his other hand tapped gently at each thigh. 

“Open them.” he said gently.

Blurb:


Summer receives the opportunity of a lifetime when she scores a placement in a volunteer program in a zoo.

Ben, as Summer’s mentor sees a bright and talented young woman who needs some structure and discipline.

Will Ben be able to help Summer reach her potential? Has Summer met her match?

Excerpt:

In this excerpt, Summer is trying hard to get to work on time with her friend Poppy in tow, but things don't go according to plan...


          Summer couldn't believe that they actually managed to get out of the house on time. Early even. She'd had a weird feeling that something was going to go wrong although she couldn't quite put her finger on what exactly that was. Maybe that wasn't unusual considering she if it was going to happen it hadn't happened yet. 

          “What's wrong?” 

          “Nothing really, I guess, I don't know. I was so excited about today and now I just feel weird, like something's off.”

          “Um thanks, I love you too.”

          “I didn't mean you Pops. I can't explain it.” The words were no sooner out of her mouth when Summer heard a siren behind her.

          “Uh oh.” Poppy said. Did you just run a red light or something?”

          “No. I've been very careful.” Summer carefully pulled over and waited for the officer to come over to the car.

          He tapped on the closed window. “Open please.” His voice was muffled through the glass but she heard what he said and was quick to comply. 

          “Is there a problem Officer?” she asked with a shaky voice.           “Im afraid there is Miss. License and registration please.”           Summer opened the glove compartment and produced both. She'd been listening when she was told to keep her papers close. 

          “Step out of the car M'am.” he said.          

          “Why? I didn't do anything.” Summer wasn't trying to be difficult and her tone wasn't rude in anyway, she just didn't understand, she'd been careful.

           “Step. Out. Of. The car.” 

           “I don't think we're being punked here Sum,  you better do it.”                   


           “You can leave the vehicle too Miss.”  


           “Am I in trouble?” Summer asked. “I didn't do anything.”          

           “This time.  Miss you have unpaid fines, your license has been suspended.”           

            “Oh no! The fines. I completely forgot!”           

            “I'm sorry Miss, but I can't let you drive this car until you pay your fines and have your license reinstated.”           

             “But I have to. You don't understand! I have to get to work.”          

             “I'm sorry Miss, rules are rules.” 

             Summer burst into tears. “If you let me drive to work just this once I can pay the fines and I won't drive my car again until I know the payments clear.”                     

              “No driving.”           

              “Can I drive the car?” Poppy asked.           

             “Do you have your license?” Summer looked at Poppy hopefully. She was going to be late on the single most important day ever. Tears rolled down her face. Not because Ben was going to be angry, although he was going to be angry, that was for sure but she was more upset that she'd let him down. Ben, Cher and everyone else that got involved in something that had been her idea.

              “Well not on me exactly.” Poppy winced at Summer, rubbing her friend's arm to try and comfort her.  “I didn't think I was going to need it but I promise Officer I do have one.” 

              “You can't drive a car unless you have your license on you.”           

              “Ok, here's the thing. We have a problem. A big problem. We need to get to the zoo and we need to do it quickly,” Pops said.         

              “That's your problem Miss, not mine.” 

              Summer just cried harder.  Not only were they late but Pops was going to keep arguing with this highway patrol guy until he arrested them.  “Pops, it's ok.”            

             “No I know it doesn't have to be your problem but I know that you wouldn't have chosen this job if you didn't want to help people. I can see it in your face. You have kind eyes. Very blue.”          

             “I'll ask you to close up your car Miss. You can get someone to come and pick it up or you can have it towed.” he said ignoring Poppy's compliments.

Monkey Business on Saturday Spankings!


Happy Saturday everyone! Today for my snippet I'm going to share a little more of Monkey Business.


Last week, Summer was trying to explain why she hadn't driven her car to work, but it wasn't making a lot of sense. Ben, sensing something wasn't right kept pushing. Finally Summer admits that she couldn't drive because she'd been drinking at a club.





            Summer picked up her bag, it was time to get out of there. The look that Ben gave her was rattled her equilibrium.
           “Not yet.” He narrowed his eyes at her. “How old do you have to be to get into this club you went to Summer?”
          “Twenty one.”
          “How old are you?”
          “Almost twenty.”
          “Where is it?”
          “Where's what?”
          “The fake ID.”
