Going to prison and taking the fall was my gift to Mia. How was I to know her father would disappear with her and I would lose her forever? After serving my five years I’m finally out, but bars or no bars, I’m still in hell.

I never believed in miracles until today. Because I’ve found her. All plush softness, sorrowful eyes and lips that call to be kissed. She’s right here in the same place I’d met her all those years ago when she was too young. Before I could touch her.

There is no force on heaven or earth that will take her from me again. No force that will keep my hands off her now. I will take her. I will do as I please with her because she is mine. Now and forever. God help us both.

Author’s Note: Take five years waiting for her to be legal. Then another five locked up in prison and you’ve got one powder keg of alpha naughtiness waiting to explode. This love at the speed of light novella will warm your heart and your nether regions. All you expect…safe, smutty, swoony and happily ever after.

Author Bio:

Dani Wyatt used to feel bad about having such dirty thoughts. Luckily, one day she decided to start writing them down. Her uber alpha heros have a wicked possessive streak and an insatiable libido. Her heroines are intelligent, quirky and worry about having too much muffin top. With her books, you can count on a heaping helping of HOT, a dash of rough and always a happily ever after.

When she’s not writing (which is not often) she is probably laughing about some irony (like A-1 Steak Sauce is vegan), riding her horse, wondering why The Walking Dead can’t have a new an episode every night or looking cross-eyed at some piece of technology sent to ruin her day.

A Horror/Paranormal story

by E. H. James

Scary zombie hands reaching in dark room


Michael Caulfield’s dreams are all about to come true—a new apartment with the woman he loves… an engagement ring in his pocket.

Only Michael has no idea his idyllic existence is about to come crashing down. The apartment is over a Darkening—a vortex between this world and the next. Created when the original owner made a deal with the devil, and opened years later, when an unsuspecting woman holds a house party with a psychic.

Now everyone who comes into prolonged contact with the Darkening is pulled in. Only no one remembers they ever existed. That is until Michael comes along. Not only is he not taken, but he is the first mortal to know of its existence. Only there is no one who believes him…or is there?

New York, 1925

“And how is my little man tonight?” Amanda Bridges knelt before her son. “My you’re getting big. How old are you now, twenty?”

Tommy giggled. “No, three.” He struggled to hold up three fingers.

Amanda tweaked his cheek.

“You ready, honey?” Henry Bridges stood in the bedroom doorway, all six-foot-two of him bedecked in his finest suit, his short, black hair slicked back in a state of perfection. “Hey, little man.” He winked at Tommy. “You be a good boy for Rosario.” He stepped back to let Amanda pass.

“You look pretty, Mommy.”

Henry grabbed Amanda around the waist. “Yeah, Mommy, you look pretty.” He grinned down at her.

“Down, tiger.” Lowering her voice, she leaned in. “We don’t have time for that. We’ll be late.” Henry demonstrated his best impression of Tommy pouting and Amanda laughed. “Now come, or Mrs. Hamilton will be wondering what has become of us.”

Rosario gripped the talisman from under her sweater. “Gloria Hamilton? You are going to Mrs. Hamilton’s?”

Amanda pressed a smile to her lips. “Not now, Rosario.”

Henry frowned. “What’s going on?”

“Nothing.” Amanda patted his chest.

Henry looked from Rosario to Amanda. “Something’s going on here. And I’d like to know what it is.”

“Please, Missus.” Rosario tightened her grasp on the talisman.

Amanda spun on Rosario. “No. I will not discuss it. This conversation is over.”

Henry stepped in front of Amanda and took her by the shoulders. “I’ve never seen you this upset.”

Forcing a smile, she pulled up. “Yes, well I wouldn’t be, if Rosario didn’t keep bringing it up.”

Henry swung around. “Rosario?”

Amanda stepped between them. “Not now!”

Tommy whimpered, and Henry drew Amanda out into the hallway. “Tell me what’s going on.”

“Ever since Mrs. Hamilton sent the invitation to tonight’s party, Rosario’s been acting strange.”

“What do you mean, strange?”

She crossed her arms, avoiding his gaze.

“Amanda, clearly this is upsetting you. Now tell me. What did she say?”

She waved her hand. “Oh, it’s all just a bunch of nonsense. You know how she can be.”

He took her by the shoulders once more. Lowering his head, he tried to catch her gaze. “Ignore her. Yes, she’s young, but she’s great with Tommy, and that’s all that matters.”

She nodded. “You’re right.”

“Of course I am. When am I not?”

She pursed her lips and pressed up against him. “Why do you think I married you, for your looks?”

He slipped his arms around her and kissed her.

She pushed him playfully. “Careful. You don’t want to smear my lipstick, now do you?”

“There’s nothing I’d like to do more.”

She clucked her tongue and shook her head. Running a gloved hand over her blonde bob, she lifted her chin and slid her arm through Henry’s. “You’re right. I’m not going to let her ruin my evening.”

“There’s my girl.” He chucked her under the chin.

“Missus?” Rosario stood in Tommy’s doorway.

“We’re going now, Rosario.” Amanda brushed past her, and Rosario ran after them.

“Take this, please.” Rosario held out the talisman that never left her neck.

Amanda stopped. “You’re offering me your necklace?”

“Please.” Rosario nodded.

“I can’t take that. It means the world to you.”

“Yes, but you need it more.” She dangled it before Amanda.

Amanda held up her palm. “I wouldn’t dream of it.”

“If you’re going to Mrs. Hamilton’s, you need this more than I.”

“Okay, that’s it.” Henry scowled. “Look, I know you mean well, but you’re upsetting my wife, and I won’t have it. Do you understand?”

Rosario bowed her head. “Yes, sir.”

“You’re great with Tommy. You really are, but if this keeps up, we’ll have to let you go.” Henry shook his head.

Tommy started to cry.

“Now look what you’ve done.” Henry turned to Tommy’s room.

“No, let me. I know how to calm him.” Amanda went into Tommy’s room. Tommy was on his bed hugging his stuffed bear. “There, there.” She removed a silk handkerchief from her purse and wiped away his tears. “There’s my brave little man.” She sat on the bed. “I tell you what. Why don’t I make something just for you and no one else? How does that sound?”

Tommy stopped crying.

“That’s my good boy.” She moved to the mirror, braiding a small section of hair. Taking the scissors from the play table, she then cut the braid. “Fetch me a pen and ink, would you, Rosario?” She untied the blue ribbon from the stuffed bear’s neck and wrote across it: ‘I will love you always, Mommy!’ She drew a heart and kissed the ribbon, leaving a lipstick mark. “Here, you want to help me?”

Tommy smiled.

“You hold this braid, while I tie the ribbon.” She wrapped the ribbon around the braid and tied it with a bow. “There now.” Fastening the ribbon and braid to Tommy’s pajamas with a safety pin, she then hugged him. “Wear this next to your heart, and Mommy will always be with you.”

She kissed his cheek and walked from his room.

Rosario stood silently, as Amanda and Henry walked down the hall.

* * *

The chauffeur brought the Lincoln to a stop before the New York townhouse.

Amanda climbed from the car and tugged her fur collar snug around her neck. She shivered, and Henry paused.

“You all right?”

She tucked her arm around his. “I’m fine.”

“You don’t look fine.”

“It’s a chill, nothing more.” She studied his expression. “The way you’re looking at me, you’d think someone walked over my grave.” Henry stared, and Amanda snickered. “It’s just an expression.” She drew a finger down his cheek.

She admired the bow windows that extended up to the second floor. The townhouse’s windows were open, the Charleston drifting out into the night from the Victrola inside. They ascended the front steps. The doors opening, as Mrs. Hamilton crossed the marble floor of the grand entry.

“Darlings.” She was dressed in black. The feathers from her headband waving above her, as she came gushing toward them.

The man by the door took their coats and Henry’s hat, and then disappeared without saying a word.

“I’m so glad you’re here.” Mrs. Hamilton did the double cheek press she was known for. “Everyone’s here, don’t you know. And I have a special surprise.” She escorted them into the drawing room. A number of people were chatting among themselves. As they entered, all conversation ceased. “Amanda and Henry have arrived.” She guided them across the room. “I believe you already know everyone.” She stopped before a woman on one of the sofas. “And this is Madame Baranovsky.”

Madame Baranovsky lifted her head. “It’s a pleasure to meet you.”

Mrs. Hamilton beamed. “Madame Baranovsky is a medium and has agreed to hold a séance for us. Right here, in this very drawing room.”

The smile fell from Amanda’s face, and Henry chuckled, prodding her with his elbow. “You’re not thinking about what Rosario said, are you?”

“Of course not. Don’t be silly. This is all in good fun. Nothing more. I know that.”

“Good to hear, but you know you’d be more convincing, if you stopped crushing my fingers.” He patted her hand.

“It’s all the rage, don’t you know. I brought Madame in special for this evening.” Mrs. Hamilton clapped twice, and six big men appeared carrying a large table. They set it down in the middle of the room and then placed ten chairs around it. She waved, and they vanished through the doorway as silently as they came. “Everyone, if you would please be seated. There’s no time like the present.”

They all pulled out a chair and sat, grinning at one another as Madame took her place at the head of the table.

Mrs. Hamilton lit candles and placed them in the table’s center. Turning off the Victrola and the lights, she then sat at the table’s foot. “There now, I think we’re ready.”

“If you would all hold hands, please.” Everyone held hands with the person on either side of them. “Now, everyone relax and close your eyes. Clear your minds of all thought. Feel the energy, as we seek to communicate with the other side.”

Amanda’s heart pounded, and she opened one eye. Henry was peeking at her. Squeezing her hand, he winked. Smiling, she closed her eyes once more.

Madame began to hum, her breaths coming slow and deep. “Spirits, are you with us?”


“Is there anyone there?”

The table shifted, and they all gasped.

Henry gaped. “Jeez! This thing must weigh a ton, how—”

“Shhh!” Madame raised her chin, and the room again fell silent. “Who are you? Who has come to us this night?”

The table lifted a foot off the floor and dropped with a bang. The candles fell over, and the room fell into darkness. They all screamed, and Amanda jumped back, her chair falling onto the hardwood floor.

“Amanda, where are you? The lights. Someone get the lights.”

Glass smashed on the floor, and the lights came on. Mrs. Hamilton stood next to the switch. “It’s all part of the séance.” She smiled, but her face was white as a sheet.

It was clear to Amanda that Mrs. Hamilton didn’t expect what had happened. It took six large men to lift that table and carry it, and here it had risen on its own.

Mrs. Hamilton walked back to her chair. “If you would all take your seats?”

“I’m not going near that thing.” Amanda grasped the doorknob, but it wouldn’t budge. “This door is locked.”

“What?” Mrs. Hamilton came over and took hold of the knob. True to Amanda’s words, it did not open. “Gerald? Why is this door locked?”

There was no answer from the hallway, and Amanda ran to the other door. It too was locked.

“I’ll climb out the window, if I have to.” She took a step toward the windows, and the table split in two. Each half flew across the room, as guests dodged out of its path. The two halves crashed into furniture, as chairs splintered and ornaments smashed. The Victrola started to play on its own. “Henry?”

Henry grabbed Amanda and held her tight. “What’s going on here?” He turned to Madame, who’d been sitting quietly this whole time.

Slowly, Madame raised her head. Her eyes were black, as she stared out at them.

Amanda buried her head against Henry’s chest.

The floor opened up, the wood splintering and cracking as it flew out into the room. The hole beneath was black and bottomless, and furniture and carpets began sliding into it.

“Henry!” Amanda wrapped her arms around Henry’s neck.

Henry ran to the windows, pulling Amanda behind him. Guests were dragged across the floor toward the hole. Amanda screamed. He lifted her up onto the sill. “Quick. Slide your legs out and drop down.”

His hand was wrenched from hers, and he flew into the hole. “Henry!” She reached for him, but he was gone. “Henry, no!”

Everything in the room was slipping into the hole, as Amanda gripped the window frame, her knuckles white. A blinding flash filled the room and surrounded her…and then everything fell into darkness.

* * *

All around Rosario, toys were vanishing from Tommy’s room. Clothing and furnishings disappeared.

Darkness, not unlike a black mist, crept under the door and across the floor.

Rosario fastened the last button on Tommy’s coat and adjusted the talisman around his neck.

Tommy pointed at the darkness under the door. “What’s that?”

“It’s nothing.” She lifted him into her arms.

“Where are we going?”

Rosario hurried through the side door. “Some place safe, sweetie. Some place safe.”

Unexpected Consequences Tour

Learning to be Little from Kathryn R. Blake.


When childhood is denied you, sometimes you need to learn how to be little.

After a bleak childhood in foster care, Kelly’s growing mistrust has her running away again and again. Homeless and penniless, with no relatives to harbor her and a penchant for escaping her caretakers, Kelly is finally handed over to one of the few parish orphanages remaining in existence until she turns eighteen, when she is released.

Possessing only a little money, few skills, and even fewer resources, Kelly’s attempts at job hunting end up with her prowling the streets in desperation – until a wealthy stranger makes her a proposition she is too cold and hungry to refuse. Though it isn’t until he takes her home that she realizes just what she’s gotten herself into.

Publisher’s Note: This book contains elements of power exchange, and dynamics of age-play as well as discipline. If any of these offend you, please do not purchase.



Kelly’s subconscious, however, wasn’t quite as reassured by the events of the day as her waking thoughts were. With her dreams overtaken by locked closet doors and pools of dark-red blood, she woke up screaming as she struggled to free herself from the iron bands encasing her.

“Shh, Kelly, my darling one. You just had a bad dream. Hush. You’re safe with Daddy. Don’t cry, sweet one. Don’t cry. Calm down and listen to Daddy’s voice as he tells you how adored and desired you are.”

Kelly instantly calmed, which surprised her. Normally, when she suffered these nightmares, she was left shaking for hours, but this man’s tender restraint and quiet manner soothed her. Content to be held, she yawned as she laid her head against his shoulder. He was wearing soft-blue, silky pajamas and smelled like tropical spice and pine. She nuzzled his chest, seeking his comfort. Actually, she wanted more. She wanted him, even though she barely knew the man. Drawing back a little, she gazed at him. His eyes were mostly gray but possessed a light brown tint that imbued them with a warm glow.

“Is making love out of the picture?” she asked softly.

“Is that what you need?” His voice sounded huskier when he asked the question.

She nodded. She did. She needed a man to hold and stroke her as he coaxed her toward a shattering climax. She’d never really had an orgasm, other than the one or two she’d snuck at the orphanage with her own hand. But she was confident this man wouldn’t just thrust himself inside her and leave her unsatisfied. He’d take time to pleasure her, and she really, really needed someone to love her right then.

He kissed her lightly with warm, firm lips then rose and clasped his hands around her waist. “My bed’s bigger. Let’s go in there.” Though his tone remained quietly reassuring, his pitch lowered significantly, and its timbre gained a measure of intensity. He spoke to her as one adult to another, rather than father to child.

Kelly gave a single nod, so he lifted her from the bed to the floor and offered his hand to steady her. Gripping his fingers in gratitude, she trotted along beside him.


About the Author:

Though 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 desire for a certain amount of control. They do not suffer defiance or disobedience lightly. In fact, it is something they refuse to tolerate, and will take firm steps to ensure the undesirable behavior is not repeated.

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.

Wrapping Up A Lovely Month

Released This February

In case you missed any of the fabulous releases this past month I thought I’d take a moment and list a quick recap of some of my favorite books that were published this February.

Contained on this list will both be books I’ve read and books on my TBR lists. I swear my TBR pile gets bigger every day with so many delicious authors and books hitting the market, yet I promise I will never to steer you wrong when it comes to cozying up with a good book.

So, without further ado… 

Fighting Irish (The Summerhaven Trio #1)

by Katy Regnery

Rory Haven and Brittany Manion knew one another as children…

…but it’s been a long time since their childhood summers at Summerhaven.

The Havens weren’t the children who attended exclusive Summerhaven Camp in Center Sandwich, New Hampshire. They were the children of the owners, expected to “pull their weight” and absolutely forbidden to fraternize with the paying guests. But that didn’t keep Rory from having a quiet, unrequited crush on gorgeous, popular, insanely-rich, Brittany Manion for three tortuous summers.

When all-grown-up, recently-engaged Brittany books the off-season summer camp for her upcoming spring wedding, she immediately recognizes Rory as the scorching-hot boy who wouldn’t give her the time of day. Meanwhile Rory, who senses that Brittany’s nuptials are less about Mr. Right and more about Mr. Right Now, launches the fight of his life to win the heart of the girl he’s always wanted.

Gentleman Nine

by Penelope Ward

From New York Times bestselling author, Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy STANDALONE novel.

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy standalone novel.

Growing up, the three of us were friends.
He was the nerd.
I was the playboy.
She was the beauty.

Deep down, I only ever wanted her. I kept it inside because Rory and I made a pact that our friend, Amber, was off-limits.

He lied.

I went off to college, and he got the girl.
Amber never knew how I felt.
They were together for years—before he broke her heart.

Through it all and across the miles, she and I casually stayed in touch.
When my job sent me to Boston for a three-month contract position, Amber let me stay in her spare room.

Still reeling from her breakup, she’d sworn off men.
One night, I opened her computer to find the shock of my life. She’d hesitantly contacted a male escort company. Afraid to date and get her heart broken again, she was looking for sex with no strings.
Every emotion imaginable ran through me: protectiveness, jealousy—curiosity.
Amber had chosen Gentleman Number Nine and sent him a message.
She opened up to him, confessing, among other things, her physical attraction to her friend—me. But she considered me off-limits—and she thought I was a manwhore. (Ironic, considering the circumstances.)

Eventually, she set up a date to meet Gentleman Nine at a hotel.
When she showed up several nights later to meet him, she was stunned to see me standing there—with an offer I hoped she wouldn’t refuse.

I don’t know about you, but there is something about these next few writers and their way of writing a M/M book that not only brings the feels, but also puts the hot in sizzle.

On His Knees (Blasphemy #4)

by Laura Kaye

Getting on his knees makes him question everything…and want even more…

Another failed relationship has lawyer Jamie Fielding confronting the truth—he’ll never be satisfied with any woman until he admits what he needs…to submit and to be used—hard. When a friend invites him to the exclusive Blasphemy club, Jamie is stunned to find everything he ever wanted—in the fierce, ruthless hands of a man.

Psychiatrist Alex McGarry will play with anyone who craves his rough brand of domination, but what he really wants is to settle down. Which makes the submissive male he meets at his club a bad idea—the man might be hot as hell but he’s also new to everything Alex has to offer. Except that doesn’t keep them from coming together again and again, sating every one of their darkest desires.

Master Alex sets Jamie’s whole world on fire and makes him question everything—and that’s good. Because Alex won’t tolerate hiding what they have for long and he wants much more than just having Jamie on his knees….

Still Waters (Compass Boys #3)

by Jayne Rylon and Mari Carr

Bryant is unlike other relentlessly alpha Compton men, including the three cousins he loves like brothers. While they grew up drooling over pretty girls in Compton Pass, he was sneaking peeks of the sexy men working his family’s ranch.

All that sweaty, shirtless skin… flexing, exposed muscle… tight, dusty jeans… The temptation proved too much. As a reckless teen, Bryant let a cowboy kiss him in the barn—a decision with horrifying consequences.

Grateful for college and a chance to escape the aftermath of his mistake, Bryant buried himself in his hydrology studies. Missing his family while he learned how to tame his cowboy craving seemed like fair punishment.

Now, with his education one thesis project away from completion, Bryant still isn’t prepared. There’s a gorgeous cowboy tattoo artist not-so-patiently waiting for him to return from academic exile.

Vaughn’s gracious offer of assistance on Bryant’s water conservation experiment at Compass Ranch is simultaneously a relief and the ultimate torture. One final test Bryant may just flunk. Because Vaughn is determined to cannonball into the deep, still waters of Bryant’s repressed sexuality.

Baby Daddy

by Kendall Ryan

We met in a trapped elevator.

Emmett was on his way to work, sophisticated and handsome in his tailored suit and tie.

I was on my way to the sperm bank. Awkward, right?

At thirty-five, my life hadn’t taken the path I thought it would and I was tired of waiting—I wanted a baby. And I was ready to take matters into my own hands to make it happen.

After our ill-fated elevator encounter, Emmett insisted on taking me to dinner—he also insisted on something else—that I ditch my plan involving a turkey baster and let him do the job. He would be my baby daddy. He was a wealthy and powerful CEO with little interest in diapers or playdates. And since he didn’t want kids, I’d be on my own once his bun was in my oven, free to go my own way.

But once his baby was inside me, it was like a switch had been flipped, and I got a whole lot more than I ever bargained for.

This full-length standalone contains a hot, swoonworthy hero, lots of playful banter and some hot baby-making s-e-x! Enjoy.

Reckless (is a standalone companion to the USA Today bestseller Shameless)

by Lex Martin

For the record, I’m not going to hook up with my boss.

I’m a lot of things—a screwup, a basket case, a flunky. But when I take a nanny job to be near my pregnant sister, I swear to myself I’ll walk the straight and narrow, which means I cannot fall for my insanely hot boss.

I don’t want to be tempted by that rugged rancher. By his chiseled muscles or southern charm or the way he snuggles his kids at bedtime. Ethan Carter won’t get the key to my heart, no matter how much I want him.

Between us, she’s the last thing I need as I finalize my hellish divorce.

What sane man trying to rebuild his life wants a hot nanny with long, sexy hair, curves for miles, and a smart mouth? A perfectly kissable, pouty mouth that I shouldn’t notice.

My focus is on my kids and my ranch, not the insufferable siren who sleeps in the room next to mine. It doesn’t matter that she wins over my kids in a heartbeat or runs my life better than I do. Tori Duran is the one woman I can’t have and shouldn’t want, no matter how much I crave her.

A Dom’s Dilemma from Kathryn R. Blake.


Kinky happenings in rural New England.

Kelly Franklin is not your “normal” submissive. In fact, there’s some question as to whether she’s a submissive at all. She seeks the protection a Dom can give her without paying the price a Dom exacts. Unfortunately, when Master Evans takes her in hand, she pays double.

James Evans has been a police detective for sixteen years and an active participant in the local BDSM scene for even longer. The fact that Kelly Franklin, a pretty and feisty submissive, scurries off like a frightened rabbit every time she sees him, intrigues him both as a Dom and a detective. So, when a fellow police officer mentions he’s looking for a new Dom to top Kelly, Jim eagerly signs up for the job.

As a Dom, Jim is pleased by Kelly’s open responsiveness, but as a police detective, he is determined to solve the enigma she presents. When he discovers Kelly has not only been keeping secrets from him, she has lied, he is more than willing to drape Kelly bare butt over his knee for a spanking–until she finally tells him the truth.



Kelly realized her doubt-filled thoughts were more obvious than she thought when Jim’s determined smile evolved into a chuckle and he bent to give her a reassuring kiss. Except the brush of his firm lips against hers started a delicious tingle of desire stirring within her core, making her long for more as she clung to him.

Drawing back, he gave her a disapproving frown. “Enough of that, young lady. You’re far too tempting as it is without pressing those plump, luscious breasts of yours into my chest. Now, behave. I said we weren’t going there, and I meant it. You’re still too sore, and if you doubt my words, I’ll prove ’em to you in a way you’re not gonna like.”

She ducked her head back under his chin as an answer. She wouldn’t press for more tonight, but she’d reconsidered his invitation. If he could arouse her so strongly with a simple kiss, what would he be able to do if they had more time together?

With a hard swallow, she gathered her courage and said, “I’ve changed my mind about this weekend, Sir. I’d very much like to go home with you.”

The admission earned Kelly another sensual, drugging kiss, which ended with a firm swat on her blanketed butt. “You sorely test a man’s restraint, darlin’. I’d best get you dressed and home before I carry you off and have my wicked way with you.”

She smiled at his resolute expression as she smoothed the lines between his brow with her fingers. “I’d like that, too, Sir,” she murmured, grinning to herself when a rumbling, deep growl emanated from his throat.


About the Author:

Though A Dom’s Dilemma is Kathryn R. Blake’s first BDSM novel and second spanking romance (a romance where spanking takes a prominent place in the plot), it is not the first book she has written in which the hero spanks the heroine. In fact, most of her novels have some sort of spanking in them. 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 desire for a certain amount of control. They do not suffer defiance or disobedience lightly. In fact, it is something they refuse to tolerate, and will take firm steps to ensure the undesirable behavior is not repeated.

Besides writing, Kathryn enjoys reading and acting in the community and regional theaters. Though a passionate lover of animals, she currently has no three four-legged beasties underfoot. She does, however, own a tank of small, finned entities that say little and eat much.

I’m Noah Weston. For a decade, I’ve quarterbacked America’s most iconic football team and plowed my way through women. Now I’m transitioning from star player to retired jock—with a cloud of allegation hanging over my head. So I’m escaping to the private ocean-front paradise I bought for peace and quiet. What I get instead is stubborn, snarky, wild, lights-my-blood-on-fire Harlow Reed. Since she just left a relationship in a hugely viral way, she should be the last woman I’m seen with.

On second thought, we can help each other…

I need a steady, supportive “girlfriend” for the court of public opinion, not entanglements. Harlow is merely looking for nonstop sweaty sex and screaming orgasms that wring pleasure from her oh-so-luscious body. Three months—that’s how long it should take for us both to scratch this itch and leave our respective scandals behind. But the more I know this woman, the less I can picture my life without her. And when I’m forced to choose, I’ll realize I don’t merely want her in my bed or need her for a ruse. I more than love her enough to do whatever it takes to make her mine for good.

“Hi, Sleeping Beauty.” She grins my way.
“Sorry about that. I can’t remember the last time I just fell off.”
“You obviously needed it. Feel better?”
“Tons. Thanks. How about you?”
“Great. I love drinking alone.” Her smirk says she’s poking harmlessly at me again. “But you gave me time to finish the dishes, do some laundry, read War and Peace…”
“Stop,” I groan. “Three hours is a long nap. I admit it. You going to ease up now?”
“When teasing you is so fun?” She raises a brow. “What do you think are the odds?”
Shitty. “How can I make it up to you? If you want to hop out of the pool and come to my bedroom, I’ll do my best to put a big smile on your face.”
“I’m intrigued,” she admits. “But in between chapters of the sad Russian saga, I Googled you. You’re, um…a big deal.”
I feel heat rush to my face. I’m used to people talking about me, but I’ve never been completely comfortable with it. “I’m told I was. But like I said, I’m retired now.”
“Hall of Famer, for sure.”
“So my agent assures me.” I shrug. “I’m trying not to linger in the past. I still have a lot of life to live.”
She splashes around a little more. “I don’t know. You’re practically ancient compared to me.”
Is this woman going to rib me about everything? Probably. And I still think it’s oddly adorable. It’s way more entertaining than the bowing, scraping, and yes-sirring I’ve been hearing for years. “How much older?”
“Almost nine years. When you were graduating from high school, I was starting junior high. These days, do you need vitamins before sex or a little blue pill?”
Now she’s laughing, and I find myself smiling in return. “Fuck you.”
“That is the idea…”
“Come here, baby.”
Her eyes sparkle under the moonlight, and it’s all I can do not to jump in after her, clothes and all. I want my hands on her now.
“Why don’t you drop trou and come in after me?”
“You’re all wet.”
She purses her lips together, and I know she’ll make one hell of a sexy bad girl. “Don’t you want me that way?”
The way I feel now? Every day, all day. “Just your pussy. That should be juicy and swollen and ready for my cock. The rest of you shouldn’t be wet unless I’m making you sweat in pleasure.”
“You sweet talker, you…”.

Blog Tour – Unexpected Consequences

Unexpected Consequences Tour

Arrested by Love from Kathryn R. Blake.


Pranks and spanks in rural New England.

Tiffany Morgan has been in love with Kyle Sinclair since she was ten years old and he’d turned her over his knee for attempting to swim in a raging white water river. Though she’d been furious with him at the time, Tiffany never told her family what Kyle did. Instead, she began trailing after him like an annoying younger sister as she tried to gain his attention.

Now, eleven years later, Kyle, a patrol officer, is finding it much more difficult to maintain his distance from the irresistible and vivacious redhead who continues to invent ingenious ways to attract his interest. Though he dismissed her initial attraction to him as infatuation, as she grew-into a lovely young woman, his own feelings of desire and protectiveness deepened. So, despite his constant struggle to resist the spirited little minx’s lures, Kyle finally has to admit he is losing the battle–badly.



In this scene, Kyle Sinclair has just pulled Tiffany Morgan over for going 45 in a 20 mile per hour school zone. This isn’t the first time Tiffany has run afoul of the law and earned the strict police officer’s condemnation, but she’s hoping this time she can up the ante a bit.

“I’m giving you a ticket and recommending you attend mandatory driver’s training, this time, Miss Morgan.” Though she still couldn’t see his eyes, Tiffany suspected they simmered with spirals of fury. “What you knowingly did is stupid, reckless, and unacceptable,” he informed her, his tone clipped and cool.

She gazed at him through lowered lashes. He’d delivered her cue. “Um, Officer?”

One eyebrow arched above his glasses as he answered. “Yes?”

She wet her lips and gave her hips a provocative little swing. “Perhaps we could work something out, instead?”

Glasses immediately came down again. “Pardon me?”

She gazed at his crotch. The evidence he found her attractive was obvious. “Perhaps, I could find a way to ease your discomfort, and you could forgive this small lapse of judgment on my part?” She ran her tongue over her lips again, in case he hadn’t gotten the message yet. Sometimes men could be a little thick.

If his eyes could physically glare daggers, she’d be one dead cookie “Are you attempting to bribe me with oral sex, Miss Morgan?” he inquired.

She gave him the most suggestive smile she had then answered, “Among other things…”

“That’s it!” he growled, yanking his handcuffs out and smooshing her face against the icy cold roof of her car. Before she could even say “don’t”, he had her hands cuffed behind her back and was marching her over to his police car.

“Ow, Kyle. You’re hurting me,” she complained, struggling to match his long stride in the tight skirt and shiny black stilettos she hoped made her legs look ten miles long. His grip on her arm lightened, but other than that small concession, he was cutting her no slack. She made no attempt to resist him, since she already knew it would be useless. Besides, this was what she’d been hoping for, right?

“Get in,” he commanded, pressing down on her head to protect it as he settled her none too gently in the back of his cruiser. Leaning inside, he said, “You can stew there for a few minutes and think about what you did while I decide what to do with you.” Then he slammed the door.

That ominous little warning had Tiffany’s backside twitching again.


About the Author:

Although Arrested by Love is Kathryn R. Blake’s first spanking romance (a romance where the spankings actually figure into the plot), it is not the first book she has written in which the hero spanks the heroine. In fact, most of her novels have some sort of spanking in them. 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 desire for a certain amount of control. They do not suffer defiance or disobedience lightly. In fact, it is something they refuse to tolerate, and will take firm steps to ensure the undesirable behavior is not repeated.

Besides writing, Kathryn enjoys reading and acting in the community and regional theaters. A passionate lover of animals, she currently has a stray cat who adopted her, as well as a tank of small, finned entities that say little and eat much.
