Interview with Cara Bristol – Cyborgs!

I am so excited to have Cara Bristol visiting me today. Not only is she a USA Today bestselling author, she is also one of my favorites from several genres.  Her latest science fiction just released, and man is it awesome!  I love her cyborgs, and couldn’t wait to get some more info about them, and the worlds she has created. Here’s Cara Bristol. 🙂

******

Cy-Ops series

Thank you, Katherine for your questions about cyborgs. I think you asked some things that people were dying to know, but were afraid to ask.

What is a cyborg?

A cyborg is a human being who has been scientifically enhanced with mechanical and/or computerized parts. Think of the Six Million Dollar Man. In science fiction romance a cyborg generally has a computer chip in his human brain that gives him extra abilities. Some authors play up the machine part of their cyborgs; others, like myself, emphasize their humanness. Besides the extra brain power, they are exceptionally well built.

What is the difference between an android and a cyborg?

I’m glad you asked! First, let’s define what a robot is: is a machine that can react to its environment. For example, the Roomba vacuum cleaner robot “knows” to go around an obstacle. An ordinary vacuum can’t do that. An android is a robot that looks human. It is not living, not organic. It’s 100 percent machine. A cyborg is a human being with some computerized parts. But since androids look human, you may not be able to tell the difference. In fact, in book 2 of the Cy-Ops Sci-fi Romance series, Mated with the Cyborg, hero Kai Andros goes undercover pretending to be an android.

If you could “build” your own cyborg, what famous personality would he look most like?

I think Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson would make a perfect cyborg. I will say that male models on the covers of my cyborg books resemble my characters as I envisioned them.

Can cyborg males produce offspring?

Yes, because cyborgs are human beings.

How do they keep from impregnating females? Is it a switch they turn on and off?

Nanocytes, tiny robotic cells help build up muscle and speed healing in cyborgs. They can also be used to switch off sperm production, which I actually mention in Mated with the Cyborg (Cy-Ops Sci-fi Romance 2)

If so, can they also “enlargen” at will? 😉

Lol, good question. But, the answer is no. The attraction to the heroine takes care of that. J However…often the hero doesn’t want to be attracted to the heroine because it complicates his life, so he employs his nanocytes to cool things down. Usually that doesn’t work—because the attraction is so strong.

In the last two books, both cyborgs “surprised” their female counterparts with what they were. How would you react if you found out the person closest to you was a cyborg?

Lol, since I write fiction, I’d be very surprised science had advanced that far, and I didn’t know about it. I think it would be cool though, and a great thing for humankind. It could solve a lot of problems for wounded servicemen and women. One reason my heroines were surprised that their hero was a cyborg is because in the Cy-Ops series the cyborgs work for a clandestine paramilitary organization. They’re undercover spies. They operate outside the law, and what they do is top secret. That’s why they don’t tell heroine who they are and what they do. In Captured by the Cyborg, heroine Illumina figures it out on her own early on. She’s a sharp cookie!

Have you ever thought of doing a female cyborg for one of your stories?

Maybe I already have…*whistles*. No spoilers. I am considering a male/female cyborg team for a future book.

If you could visit any place you have described in one of your stories, where would you go?

Two places. First, the Darius 4 Pleasure resort described in the Cy-Ops series. I think that would be so cool. Second, I would love to visit the Rod and Cane Society mansion.

Captured by the Cyborg (Cy-Ops Sci-fi Romance 3) Description

Sometimes the biggest risk is to one’s heart….

An ex-Cyber Operations field agent, Dale Homme has kissed danger and betrayal more times than he cares to count. Now he runs a clandestine factory beneath the surface of the moon Deceptio, where confidentiality and security matter more than anything. When a beautiful young woman arrives seeking a job, Dale knows within minutes she’s lying. Everything about her is false: her past, the people she claims to know, her reason for being on Deceptio. Illumina Smith? Even her name is an alias.

Logic says send her packing. His gut says she’s in trouble. She needs him. So he’ll do anything to keep her safe….even if it means keeping her captive.

Captured by the Cyborg is third in the Cy-Ops Sci-fi Romance series but is written to be read as a stand-alone novella.

An Excerpt from Captured by the Cyborg

Dale slapped his knees. “Here’s what’s going to happen. First, to put your mind at rest, let me assure you that Alonio is no threat to me. I’m a cyborg. Keeping people safe is what I do. He might succeed in drawing a little blood, but I’ll wipe up the mess with his ass. Second, while I doubt he can gain access to Deceptio, as a precaution, I’ll amp up security.”

“About that…” She had to tell him how she’d changed the entry protocol. He wouldn’t like that she’d gone behind his back. “I need to tell you…”

He held up his hand. “Let me finish. Third, you are not going anywhere. You’re staying right here where I can protect you.”

The autocratic edict set her teeth on edge. “You can’t keep me here!” She hadn’t fought so hard for her freedom and safety only to be dictated to by another man, however well intentioned. She was nobody’s captive!

“Yes, I can.”

Let him try! “As you’ve realized,” she said, “I’m a master sensate. A computer system doesn’t exist that I can’t infiltrate. I can hijack one of your spaceships and be gone before you realize there was a breach. Your entry and exit protocols, for instance—”

He leaned in until his breath caressed her ear, and he whispered, “Did your orientation tour happen to include a visit to the brig?”

He was threatening to lock her up? She jerked away and rounded on him. “What are you saying?”

“Moonbeam’s isolation can cause people to go a little crazy. We haven’t had anyone snap yet, but the possibility exists. You could be the first ward of the Deceptio jail.”

“I can access computer-controlled doors, too!” She crossed her arms.

He laughed. “You and half the employees on Deceptio—which is why they’re not computer controlled.” From his pocket he pulled out a metal ring and dangled some odd-shaped jagged objects. “Good old-fashioned locks and keys. The best antiques money can buy.”

She leaped off the bench. “You’d imprison me?”

Lucky Leprechauns, Sexy Euphemisms, and Dirty Truck Talk – a real interview with Aubrey Cara

 

Aubrey Cara’s in the hot seat.  We are having a good old fashioned, fun, slightly inappropriate at times, interview about her brand new book, Taming Kat. 😉 It all started when I read the scene where Caleb nicknamed Kat’s most private part, his lucky leprechaun…

 

Katherine Deane: So Aubrey, let’s get down to business.

The leprechaun- Lucky little bastard that hoards gold or the red headed stepchild of the hoohah?

Aubrey Cara: Did you just say red headed stepchild of the hoohah?

Katherine Deane: Inquiring minds want to know.

Aubrey Cara: I um…well–

Katherine Deane: And in all fairness, why didn’t Caleb get a nickname?

Aubrey Cara: Caleb or his penis?

Katherine Deane: His penis

Aubrey Cara: hooha, penis fly trap, and leprechaun weren’t enough horrible euphemisms in one book?

Katherine Deane: I’ll see your hoohah, penis fly trap, and leprechaun, and raise you a spam javelin, womb ferret, and a Just-in Beaver.

Aubrey Cara: Just-in Beaver? That is brilliantly horrifying. I, um—I suppose I’ll see your spam javelin, womb ferret, and Just-in Beaver and raise you a liquid gold miner, Texas Momba, bald-headed yogurt slinger.

Katherine Deane: Bwhahaha, Okay, okay, enough with the penis talk already. You  distracted me so much, I don’t know what I wanted to ask next! So let’s move on to the issue of the truck. So…. Caleb giving Kat his truck for a few days. That’s a pretty big step for a dude, especially, a Texan, right? You know in some cultures, they would be considered legally married at this point.

Aubrey Cara: It’s true. The Right Of The Truck, or TROFT for short, has resulted in numerous unwitting marriages. I’m hoping to spread awareness. Also, circling a barn with a man, especially a rancher, can and will lead to pregnancy. A rancher’s sperm, much like their truck, tend to ‘get the job done’. If you know what I mean.

Katherine Deane: aaaand now we are back to penis talk again. Seriously, how big is Caleb’s stroker kit?

Aubrey Cara: <holds hands up to an impressive, if not intimidating width>

Katherine Deane: I bet he reeeeeeally knows how to use the ol’ Master / Slave Cylinder. Hehe, has Kat ever blown his tranny?

Aubrey Cara: More than once, and in great detail.

Katherine Deane: Um, okay I was trying to talk about truck euphemisms, and you completely discomfuddled me. How about we talk about safewords?

Aubrey Cara: Do I need a safeword?

Katherine Deane: No, I’d like to be serious for a minute, and stop jawing about peni’s. (Penis’s? What the heck is the plural form of penis , anyway?) Why did Kat safeword during their talk? They had the miscommunication, he had already loaned her his truck for Gawd’s sake. Didn’t she trust him to safely discuss her feelings?

Aubrey Cara: Poor girl had no idea she’d already taken a big step by driving the man’s truck. 🙂 At the moment she safewords having any type of discussion would have been too exposing. She was feeling broken and vulnerable. Caleb is 100% Dom, but he always respects a sub’s prerogative to safeword. Kat (unfortunately for her poor posterior) uses this against him, the silly girl.

Safewording out of a convo with a man that has a penchant for spanking you is never a good idea. Saying you’re sorry often involves a sore bottom.

Katherine Deane: I totally get that.

Aubrey Cara: A sore bottom?

Katherine Deane: Mmmm, yeah, sore bottoms are lovely. What were we talking about again?

Aubrey Cara: Safewords It’s important to be with a man that you know will respect your safeword.

Katherine Deane: Ohhh, like if he chooses Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious in pig latin? Probably not a good sign, eh?

Aubrey Cara: That is a good indicator you’re with a man that is not going to respect your safeword. Also, if he doesn’t ask you for one, and then when you tell him yours he shrugs, and utters a noncommittal, “Okay,” or “Baby, safewords are lame,” or “That’s nice”. That’s never a good sign.

Katherine Deane: Ooh, ooh, ooh, I got a good one! If your guys says your safe word is “Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.” hehe

Aubrey Cara: After you’re tied he’s suddenly all, “Me no hablo ingles”.

Katherine Deane: Como se’, WTF?!

Aubrey Cara: <snorts> Definitely a bad sign!!

Katherine Deane: Well, I totally enjoyed talking about Caleb and Kat; penis’s; spankings; and the worst safe words in the history of D/s

Aubrey Cara: I’m forever grateful no one had to cry Fluggaenkoecchicebolsen during the course of this interview.

Katherine Deane: in pig latin!

Aubrey Cara: (LOL)

Katherine Deane: So, what’s next? Mimi seems like she should get her own story.

Aubrey Cara: Yes, Mimi and Mason, who both play small roles in Taming Kat will be getting their own book. It’s due out early spring. (I’m revising right now)

Katherine Deane: Jackpot!! That means we can have another interview! (rubs hands together and inserts an evil Muwahahaha)

Aubrey Cara: I will be brushing up on my euphemisms, so come prepared.

Katherine Deane: Challenge accepted, worthy adversary of peni puns.  Thanks again for chatting with me 😉

Aubrey Cara: Thank you for having me!!

 

Excerpt:

He whipped her towel off. She squeaked as he set her ass on the edge of the counter, splaying her thighs wide. He could already see the moisture at her apex. “I love your cute little pussy.” He reached down to spread her wetness over her opening, thrusting his fingers inside to watch her head fall back on a moan. “All smooth, but for a little fluff on top. I love the little tuft of red hair at the top, like it’s my own little leprechaun. I get lucky every time I rub it.” He could feel her muscles clamp down and squeeze his fingers as he worked them inside her.

 “You did not,” she panted, “Just.. call..my pussy… a fucking lepreahhh—” The rest of what she would have said cut off as he leaned down to take her clit in his mouth, sucking it in before gently biting down. He was rewarded with her shriek. Her hands pulled his hair as her channeled spasmed on his fingers. Her honey poured over his hand as she came.

Taming-Kat-Big

Blurb:

Moving halfway across the country to work part-time at a ranch had been a rash decision on Yankee, city girl Kat Martin’s part. She understood that. She had just needed to get away from her pesky mom and older sister telling her what she should be doing with her life. She had no idea her bold move was going to put her in daily close proximity to her one and only one-night stand, Caleb McCrae.

Kat may not know what she wants to do with her life but she does know she needs to stay well away from sexy neanderthal Caleb, who had strutted into her life and ripped her pants off.

Caleb is officially done with military life and is ready to settle down. He’s bought a stake in the ranch he grew up working at and is building a beautiful house. Now all he has to do is wrangle the one that got away. Kat Martin has been haunting his thoughts and steaming up his dreams ever since she skipped out on him after one of the hottest nights of his life. She may be giving him the cold shoulder now, but he knows just how to heat her up.

Warning: Contains one crystal ball reading mama, one gal with commitment issues and a sassy mouth, and one cowboy that believes his belt was meant for more than holding up his pants.

PK Corey spills it all!

I am so excited to have PK over today, for an actual REAL interview! I don’t get to do these very often, so I had a real treat by getting to talk so intimately with her. Now, I’ll be honest. The reason I wanted to interview PK (besides the fact that she is a really nice woman, and I like her 🙂 ), is because of how pleasantly surprised by her book, Cassie’s Conflicts.

 I thought I would have nothing in common with the MC (Cassie is not your typical 20-30 year old main character). I hoped I would like the book. But I was wrong.

 I LOVED the book, and adored everything about the spunky woman and her fun life. I knew right then I absolutely HAD to interview PK Corey.

So here you go.

Enjoy 🙂

 

Katherine Deane: Thanks so much for talking with me, PK. So let’s get down to business.

Why an older couple? What appealed to you to go against the norm, and average ages of 20-30 somethings?

PK Corey: I want Cassie’s stories to let everyone know that love and passion are not the sole property of the young. Love and passion grows and changes with age. I didn’t begin writing until I was nearly fifty, I knew the love of a long time commitment and that was what I wanted to explore. Many of us who have always longed for a loving spanking relationship want it to last a lifetime, so let’s explore what’s in the far distance for most of us. The excitement of erotic spanking, as well as discipline doesn’t have to stop as we leave our thirties. I feel that Cassie and Tom give us hope as to what could be.

Katherine Deane: Is this story based on any personal experiences?

PK Corey: It really isn’t. Cassie wandered into my head when I was eleven years old. She was forty then. She began telling me her stories. I never knew why my imaginary friend was thirty years older than me and I never knew why my imaginary friend never left. But now I hope she doesn’t.

Katherine Deane: Do you use any of your life in your writing?

PK Corey: My parents traveled a great deal and I’ve used some of the stories I’ve heard about their travels, with my own spin included of course. I also attended many conventions with my parents, at least once a year since I could remember, until my early-twenties. The ladies activities, the cocktail parties, the dinner and dancing I remember from those days. I do remember several older couples I love to watch dance.

Another thing I got from my life is Tom’s ideas on manners and how a lady should act. These ideas come from my sweet mother. I didn’t always agree with her views, though I wore my white gloves to church as a child, but I knew her idea of proper and I let it bloom it Tom.

Katherine Deane: Was there a public service message in your minor character who was a beloved, sweet young homosexual man? And did any of this come from personal experience?

PK Corey: Yes, this was my reality. My son told me he was gay when he was about the same age as Drew, my son had just turned fourteen. Although he’s not huge like Drew, or athletic, he was accepted and loved by his teachers and friends. He and his boyfriend married about a year ago and someday Drew will too.

Katherine Deane: This really makes me happy, PK. Thank you for sharing that. 🙂

What appeals to you most about Cassie?

PK Corey: I admire her fearlessness, and her total and consuming love and devotion to Tom and her friends.

Katherine Deane: I loved that too! I think that is why I connected so well with her.

How much longer will you continue with this series?

PK Corey: Now there is the question! How long will people want to continue reading her? I have roughly five more books. There are really good stories to come and I really want to tell them. But I also want to branch out and prove I’m hot a one hit wonder – mostly I want to prove it to myself. I know I’ll eventually do the books that are already sketched out, but I don’t know how long I should take. I’m trying to find a balance between not having my readers grow tired of her and on the other hand not forgetting her.

Katherine Deane: What’s the oldest you think Cassie will become before her stories are concluded?

PK Corey: This is my favorite question. There is a book/story in my mind that I’m going to write someday even if I never publish it. It’s years in the future – both Cassie and Tom are in there nineties. It’s obviously a closing book so it could just be for me, but at the same time there are a couple of secrets that come out in that last story that would be interesting to those who truly love Cassie. One secret I’ve known about for a long time, the other I just discovered and it was a bit of a shock. I guess I’ll decide about this book later.

Katherine Deane: I know that’s going to be exciting! So, what comes next?

PK Corey: If I can ever retire and possible get my thoughts organized, there are other characters running around in my head that I would like to explore. I really like the Corbin’s Bend Series and I’d love to write a book for it too.

Katherine Deane: Do you have a favorite scene you’d like to share?

PK Corey: My favorite scene/situation is long, but I’m giving you part of it here. Cassie can get aggravated with Tom, but usually she’s not that mad. This time, she’s truly angry. I liked this scene but I’m most intrigued by the one that comes shortly after it. The scene that follows this one popped into my head one day in great, graphic detail. I had no idea what had happened to arrive at that situation and I had no idea what would happen next. But the scene stayed with me and nearly two years later I got to learn the details.

Excerpt

Tom, who had barely spoken to me during dinner, turned to the couple on his left and announced, “I think we’ll be headed back to the hotel soon. Cassie’s been a little under the weather.”

As far as I was concerned, the fight was on! “THAT’S IT!” I shouted loud enough to attract the attention of several tables as I slammed my hand down. Lowering my voice only slightly I continued, “Cassie has not been under the weather in the least. If Cassie had been feeling under the weather, I would have been one of the first to know. If you think I’m too old and decrepit to come to these functions, why don’t you just put me in the home and be done with it. You can go back to the hotel alone if you want to, I don’t give a damn – I’m staying here.” I grabbed Sue’s drink and downed it in one gulp and then left the table so fast none of the stunned men had time to rise.

I was so mad I didn’t know what to do with myself. I headed to the bar to order another drink. I scanned the crowd until I spotted several old friends and asked one to dance. I stayed on the dance floor nearly thirty minutes. Tom was still at the table. His face was dark with anger, but he made no move to come to me. I tried not to look his way, but it seemed impossible. I kept glancing his way regardless of my intent. He never took his eyes off me. Finally I couldn’t take it any longer and I headed to the ladies room.

I sat in the little lounge area and closed my eyes. I kept them closed as women moved in and out. I don’t know how long I sat that way, but when I finally opened them, Sue and Annie were sitting across from me.

“What?” I snapped.

Sue cocked her head and looked at me. “I was just wondering if you had a charity you wanted us to contribute to in lieu of flowers.”

“He is going to kill me, isn’t he? What has he said?”

“The man hasn’t spoken a word since you left the table,” Annie said anxiously. She looked upset. I closed my eyes again. This was bad. “Please come back and talk to him.”

I was in more turmoil than you can imagine. I was still angry to the core, but I felt horrible. I knew I was going to have to face him eventually. Leaving the powder room, I looked over at our table.

Tom was gone.

I felt like I’d been punched in the stomach. I couldn’t breathe. I was the hot headed one, I’d run out on Tom more times than I cared to remember, but never in all our years together had Tom walked out on me. Although my anger hadn’t defused, the hurt was overwhelming.

********

PK Corey: Katherine I’ve so enjoyed answering your questions. I’m sure some young readers are hesitant to grab up a story where someone their grandma’s age is being spanked, but I just want them to give it a try. I hope everyone will just try one Cassie story and then decide if they more.

Katherine Deane: Thanks so much for your openness, PK, and for letting me ask some not so typical questions. I really enjoyed Cassie and her story, and look forward to reading more about her. And I can’t wait to see what else you have in mind for branching out. Hugs!

I will not be replying much for the next few days, but will still keep the pre – set posts scheduled. Also, I will probably not be making many visits around to the rest of the blogs until all this passes. Hope y’all understand. 🙂 Hugs and blessings!

The Interview:

Katherine Deane walks into her  office, finding it suddenly cramped, with five gorgeous (yet huge) cowboys. She greets the gentlemen, narrows her eyes, and lets out a curse  that would make a sailor blush.

Katherine Deane: &^$%@ it, Corinne! I said I was burnt out and wished for five days of western sun, and a little kink thrown in.

(Her most trusted assistant, Corinne Alexander, replies over the intercom): Oops, sorry. You have seemed pretty stressed out these past few months. I thought you would enjoy an interview with five western sons who enjoy a little kink.

Katherine Deane: (curses again and turns her head to the five scowling, testosterone laden men in front of her.) All right gentlemen.  I’m sorry for the mix up.  I have only beta read for one of your authors, so the rest of you are quite new to me. How about a round of introductions?

Clint Ryan:  Hold on a second, young lady. Where I come from, ladies don’t use language like that.  In fact, women with salty tongues like that ofttimes find themselves with a mouthful of soap.

Katherine Deane: (rolls her eyes at the tall drink of water with black as midnight hair and startling blue eyes.  The cleft in his chin was sexy as hell and a bit distracting if she were being totally honest) Yeah, I gathered that. You are from what time, 1870’s? Nowadays, women have a distaste for soap.

Clint Ryan: Indeed? Well then, I have a good strong yardarm at my Boston shipyard. I could string you up for a good striping if you prefer. No? Then consider yourself lucky you are not my fiancee.  Of course, I prefer genteel women like my own Emmalee, so that wouldn’t likely happen. Although naughty as she is, she has felt the flat of my hand at times.  Many times more recently, if fact, during our trip to Denver.

(Clint frowns remembering all the mischief Em got into on the trail and the train).

Jackson Owens: If you had a taste for soap, that is you liked it, well, it wouldn’t quite do the trick now would it? If you were my woman I’d  bend you over that desk and warm your tail end, until you learned to curtail that tongue. You can ask Celia how well that works.

(Jackson winks at her and knows his point had been made when Katherine’s cheeks blush)

Katherine Deane:  I’m sorry, gentlemen. I’m a little out of sorts right now, please forgive my rudeness.

Sam Pride: (flashes his devastatingly handsome smile.) It’s all right, … we can have a reckoning later That’s what I call it with Mabelle, anyway. But first, would you like to finish this interview? How often do you get five characters  in one room at the same time?

Katherine Deane: You’re right. This is a marvelous opportunity!

(talking to herself now, ‘five handsome alpha males, together, not trying to kill each other. )

You’re not going to try to kill each other are you? I did almost have an issue the last time I put a few alphas together.

Matt : (chuckles) No, we are not going to try to kill each other. As a matter of fact, we all have something in common.

Abel Armstrong: Sure, we all have a cleft in our chins. (winks) I’m keepin’ mine under a beard just to keep the ladies from overwhelmin’ me. Not that I have eyes for them since meetin’ my Sunny. From the first moment, that li’l girl wrapped me around her  finger. Well, almost. She’s earned herself a few spankin’s along the way.

Katherine Deane: (leans back in her chair and smiles) That’s easy. Besides being handsome, old western types, you are also all spankos, right?

Clint: ( corrects her) I am not a ‘western type’ as you put it,  but I agree with the western philosophy of taking a sassy young miss across the knee when the situation warrants. If handled correctly, I’ve found some young ladies even enjoy it, despite their protests to the contrary. (A perfectly wicked grin curves his full lips and gives him a devilishly delicious appearance).

Abel Armstrong: Yep, I also  reckon a good, hard spankin’ can do wonders. But I  got the best results when I gave her some bare-bottomed swats in public. Whoo-ee, did that straighten Sunny right up. For a while, anyway.  She’s considerably younger than I am, so she tends to let her emotions run high.

Jackson: That’s a right good idea. Don’t know why I never thought of it.

Matt:  Me neither. I think we need to hang out with big brother for a spell. He’s got more experience. Maybe he can teach us a thing or two.

Katherine Deane: (leans back even further in her chair, furiously taking notes ) Public swats. mmm. Damn , you guys are hot.

Matt:  (scowls) That’s strike two concerning your salty language. Care to go for strike three? Each one of us is quite capable of administering a thorough spanking.

Abel Armstrong: Modern sensibilities are no excuse, young lady.

Katherine Deane: (swallows nervously as her cheeks turn a crimson red)  Sorry. bad habit.

Sam: (chuckles)  Matt is good with handling bad habits, aren’t you?

Matt: Why yes, I am. I find that a trip over my knee with a  firm hand applied to her bare bottom cures my little Annie of bad habits.( He winks at Sam) Corner time with a red bottom on display works too.

Katherine Deane: (leans back a bit further in her chair, her brightly painted pink toenails barely touching the desk in front of her)  Come on, please. Just tell me what the big similarity is.

(She takes a closer look at all of them) Wait a second.

Sam:  Are you seeing a bit of a family resemblance?

Katherine Deane:  (takes in the height, stature and dimpled chins. She can’t tell on Abel, because he wears a beard, but she suspects he also has a cleft there)

Abel Armstrong: We are all from the same father,  Johnny Hastings.  None of us knew about each other until his passin’. We met at the readin’ of his will. I reckon it was a fateful day for all of us. It purely was for me. I had no idea I was the eldest of five boys.

(Katherine Deane squints and shifts to the side trying to see a different angle )

(The chair  slips backward, and she falls flat on her back)

(Five pairs of hands help her to her feet.)

Matt: (asks in concern) Are you okay?

Katherine Deane: Sh*$, yeah, I’m ok. stupid %&^$ing chair!

(Her eyes go wide when she sees the  raised eyebrows  on the stern men around her)

Matt: (blows out a breath) Clint, where’s that bar of soap?

Clint: ( shakes his head sadly) Poor thing. She’s beyond soap. We’ll need lye and a scrub brush! Then we need to find her a spanking kind of man to tame her. Too bad we don’t have any more unmarried brothers.

Able Armstrong: Maybe we ought to use that chair for somethin’ more memorable than a soapy mouth. Three or four swats from each of us might scare that cursin’ right out of her.

Jackson: Why the chair when you have a perfectly functional desk? And after all those warnings you think the belt might leave a more lasting impression?

Matt: Well hell, we got five belts right here at our fingertips. No need to waste time lookin’ for soap. (He reaches for his belt buckle)

Katherine Deane: (Her eyes widen as she presses her hands to her backside)  Can I just say I’m sorry?

All five men: Yes. After your spanking.

Katherine Deane: Uh oh!

After interview:

Corinne jumps when she hears the door open, and nods at the five men who exit. They tip their hats with a “howdy, ma’am and a grin, and leave the office.

Corinne rushes into Katherine’s office to see her wincing as she sits down into her hard chair.

Katherine Deane: ( mumbles) I’m getting a cushioned chair for the next interview.

Corinne: Sorry about that, Kate.

Katherine Deane: No, that was a great call for an interview. And I’m sorry I yelled at you.  But  strangely, I feel a lot more relaxed. Which is good.

(She winces as she shifts in her seat). The next two weeks are going to be he– I mean, heck.   After that, I am seriously going to need a vacation. I’m going to need to stop time for a while and just chill and daydream and relax.

Katherine Deane:(sighs) Yep,  pencil that in for me , in two weeks, will you?

Corinne: (smiles knowingly) You got it, Kate.

She leaves the room, and marks her planner.

Katherine Deane – next interview – science fiction, alpha male, time travel, spankings

blacksmits bride

The Blacksmith’s Bride by Patricia Green

Sunny Winslow knows exactly what she wants in a man. When she meets the blacksmith, Abel Armstrong, in her new home she’s immediately hooked. Unfortunately, her mother has other plans for her that do not include a blacksmith. She is determined to tie Sunny to a rich town counselor. Sunny is desperate to escape the counselor, so she embarks on a series of schemes to get the man she wants.

Abel Armstrong has some skeletons in his closet. In the late 1800s, it’s quite the scandal to be a divorced man. Over the course of the last ten years, he’s had to work very hard to get his reputation back. Meeting Sunny is like a breath of fresh air, but he can’t afford to throw caution to the wind and force their joining by doing something disreputable.

Can spankings teach Sunny to have some patience and trust that Abel’s way is the right way? And, can Abel deal with Sunny’s impulsive scheming and keep his standing in the community intact?

 

hve and to scold

To Have and To Scold by Mary Wehr

Annie’s sweet on her neighbor, Matthew Caine, but the stern rancher treats her like a bratty child instead of a woman. Each encounter always ends with a trip over his knee.

‘Bratty’ Annie has grown into a beautiful woman and Matthew realizes that he’s fallen in love with her, but she’s unsure of his feelings. When he learns about her stepmother’s evil plan to marry her off to a man Annie despises in order to settle a debt, he steps in and takes her to wife.

Annie’s happy to be married to the man of her dreams and learns that no matter what her age, her disobedience and sass will be dealt with an old-fashioned spanking.

The Lawman’s Lessons by Patty Devlin

Choose one of the two men, or take the return ticket and head home. It wasn’t much of a choice. Celia had worked and studied so hard to have a school of her own. And she had known that they might be a little upset. She knew exactly what they had wanted. It was stated very clearly in the advertisement and she could probably read and write better than anyone one of them.

Jackson sure never planned to marry, and how could he when his name would be a disgrace to his bride? So why had he fought so hard to keep her from marrying the other man? He could have shrugged it off and gotten out of there, but he just couldn’t do it. The new school teacher needed someone who would stay on her tail and teach her a lesson or else she’d run right into danger.

But, he’d have to be honest with her and tell her about that no good scoundrel who had sired him. She at least had a right to know he was a bas—illegitimate, that the man who fathered him had left his mother alone to fend for herself. Then if Celia could handle that, well, they could work the rest out. Besides, there weren’t any other good choices and she simply couldn’t be without a husband.

 

outlaws bride

The Outlaw’s Bride by Renee Rose

Mabelle Lawson had been managing her dead sister’s ranch without help for three months. The last thing she needs is a band of outlaws showing up and pushing her around. The Curly James gang members have no patience for her sass, and when their leader attempts to strike her with his fist, one of his men volunteers to spank her instead. She wants to hate the good-looking outlaw, but he seems to have her well-being at heart, even risking his life to protect her from the other men.

Unjustly accused of murder, Sam Pride is on the run and his luck worsens when he tangles with the Curly James gang. The only bright spot is the little spitfire rancher who steals his heart with her courage and spunk. When the two set off together for Cheyenne and then Denver, sparks fly and their magnetic connection grows.

Still, Mabelle is not sure if Sam will commit and even if he does, can he clear his name before a bounty hunter shoots him or brings him in?

 

blacksmits bride

The Juniper Bride by Maddie Taylor

Emmalee Gray watches in frustration as her fiancé, Clinton Ryan, boards a train heading west. Told to stay behind and prepare for their wedding as Clint embarks on a mysterious errand, Em has other ideas. She doesn’t want to remain home without him, especially with her witch of a stepmother and a father who barely knows she exists. She’d much rather risk Clint’s wrath and follow him, planning to stay hidden until she gets so far away from Boston he wouldn’t dare send her back alone. Then she can enjoy some private time and maybe a little adventure with her gorgeous fiancé, in advance of their nuptials.

Unfortunately, Emmalee is a magnet for trouble and finds herself in one scrape after another. To keep her safe, Clint lays down the law: obey his orders or suffer the consequences over his knee.

Can they make it to their destination in one piece? When they do, and Clint’s past is revealed, how will Emmalee react, and will she ever find out why people keep calling her a “juniper bride?” With danger and intrigue swirling around them at every turn, can their passionate love survive?
