Spanking A-Z Blog Challenge, Y: Yarn

spank A2Z

Almost there! Letter Y for the spanking challenge is about yarn 🙂

I wrote all about crafting in my H: Hand crafts post, which included fun stuff like jewelry, sewing and other quick fun stuff. Today is about the longer projects. The ones using yarn.

Ok, to the best of my knowledge, there are two ways to work with yarn. One is to crochet – using one needle that has a hook on the end of it, so you can hook the stitches.

I do have some crocheted scarves, but could not find any to post. (they are all up in the winter bags. which is funny, because it normally takes me until at least August before I put away the winter stuff. Next February, I’ll put away the summer clothes 🙂 )

The other way, is to knit – using two long, slender needles with pointed ends.

Because of some great help through friends like Patricia Green and online tutorials (thanks also to Celeste Jones), I was able to teach myself to knit.

scarf_light blue   scarf_dark blue scarf_blue brown and green

My favorite kind of knitting is the ruffle scarf. It has holes at the top, so casting on and off is a lot easier. I can usually do one long scarf in about three hours. (Of course, I have not sat down for three hours straight, in a very long time, so this “three hours” is more like two weeks.) This means I sometimes lose a stitch or two off my needle when I go to pick it up again.

Which means, sometimes I have to start the WHOLE $%(* thing again! LOL I have not learned how to count or re-stitch a missed stitch.

So some projects take six weeks.

Why would someone do this to themselves?!?

I don’t know. Maybe I really am a masochist? 🙂

 

No, it’s just that I like the finished product. I love how it looks, finally draped over a loved one or friend’s neck; how they ooh and ah; and really seem to like it.

 

Which reminds me. I never really thanked my mother and hubby’s granny for making the awesome blankets for us.

This one was a wedding gift for hubby and me.

knitted blanket huge blue

Holy cow, the thing is freaking huge! How long did this take to make?! And do you see all the cool designs?

 

baby blanket pink and green

These ones are baby blankets for each of my children. (Yes, there is a kitten on this one. She was very happy I laid it out for her comfort while taking pictures. :))

Look at the intricate pattern on this one.

baby blanket light pink intricate

I am so amazed that someone could not only do this, but that they would put THAT much time and effort into it.

Wow!

I need to call them both again, and thank them (since they hopefully, do not read this blog 🙂 )

This also got me thinking about my attention span. I gripe and groan over sitting still with nothing to do, no music, no nook, no laptop, when we go “out of service” range.

I HATE sitting still. And honestly, I can only do the mind numbing, yet relaxing, knitting or crocheting, if I am being entertained another way.

But wouldn’t it be cool every once in a while, to just turn off the cell phone, turn down the answering machine, turn off and unplug the IPOD, IPAD, laptop, desktop, Nook, Kindle, Wii, and TV;

and just chill and,

I don’t know.

Knit a huge blanket with my husband while talking idly about whatever pops into our heads?

knitting elderly couple

 

Or to have a fun night knitting with girlfriends?

knitting friends

It sounds nice. Really. To escape from technology and real life for just a night or two. (Ok, I’m having another one of my “I just want to move to the country and escape it all” moments)

 

knitting joke half done projects

LOL, that’s me. The unfinished project, gal. 🙂

 

But it would be nice to just entertain ourselves and each other with nothing more than our words, our creativity, two big needles, and some big balls of yarn.

knitting joke

LOL, if only I could find some real life friends to knit with instead of virtual ones.

Then again, I don’t know if I actually would be able to multi-task while knitting.

This is how I envision myself when working with yarn.

Unfortunately, this is probably a better expression.

So here’s to yarn,

and creating,

whether it be big or small

a short time or long time of effort

 

Here’s to taking a little time away from technological entertainment,

to creating our own fun.

Spanking A-Z, Blog Challenge, X: eXcited!!!

spank A2Z

Today’s post is about eXcitement, for my letter X day. 🙂

I’m excited about a lot of different things.

1.  My contemporary (my first solo book!) is in the hands of the copy editor. 🙂

2.  My sister had a baby at the beginning of the week!

3.  I had a break from family duties today, and wrote a whole whopping 5172 words today on my next story (Redd from The Winter Storm, is getting her own story!). (I’m pretty sure this doubles my most ever words written in a day. 🙂 )

4.  My husband has agreed to fulfill the petitioned request from the “Vulnerability” Post. 🙂

5.  And we are nearing the end of Spanking A-Z. Don’t get me wrong, it has been a ton of fun! But I was seriously doubting I would make it all the way through to the end. Only two more to go!

🙂

Thanks for stopping by!

Spanking A-Z Blog Challenge, W: Winter Storm Fairy Tale References

spank A2Z

 

I am so excited about today’s “W” post for the Spanking A-Z blog challenge!

I have been chomping at the bit for ages to talk about the symbolism in my favorite story.

Hehe, okay, it’s my favorite because I co-wrote it with Renee Rose and Casey McKay.

But even if we hadn’t written it, I am pretty sure it would be my favorite. 🙂

The Winter Storm is a fun, action packed, spank-a-riffic, romance with paranormal, BDSM and fantasy aspects to it. But did you know that a lot of the characters and scenes were based off fairy tale or bed time story references?

If you’ve read the story, here’s your chance to see how many you caught!

So here are all the fun references from the story. In random order

 

Jake and Jillian Hill – Siblings on their way to see the matchmaker. Jake falls down a hill and hurts his head. (That’s an easy one. Jack and Jill. Jack hurt his crown.)

The matchmaker lives in Grimmberg – taken from the many Grimm Brothers stories we perused, looking for ideas for the story.

Banbury – Jake and Jillian’s white stallion. (This was a fun one to play with. In the nursery rhyme, “Ride a Cock horse”, the fine lady rode her white stallion to Banbury Cross. Banbury Cross happens to be on a steep hill, so that fit with my siblings traversing a big hill. But even more importantly, a cock horse is described as a high-spirited horse, or the additional horse to assist pulling a cart or carriage up a hill. From the mid-sixteenth century it also meant a pretend hobby horse or an adult’s knee. (from wikipedia). LOL, “riding an adult knee”, reminded me of a spanking, so it was easy to name their horse Banbury.

Spa- NK – the lodge that Bertram owns, and the central location of the stories. It’s easy to see the word “spank”, but do you know what the “NK” stands for?

North Kristiandom – the land our MC’s live, is taken from the name of a very well-known author, Hans Christian Andersen. Hence, “Kristiandom”.

Bertram B. Wolfe – a shapeshifter, whose initials BB Wolfe, (Big Bad Wold), have even more meaning, when paired with his “daughter”, also known as

Redd – Bertram’s “little”. She is like a daughter to him. (LOL, I have not put a cloak on her yet. That would make it too easy!)

Faye Godmeyer – She’s half  fairy, and she’s about to become very special to Cindy, as special as a godmother. But first she has to learn to use her magick wand 🙂

Cindy / the Stepmother – Cindy is Spa-NK’s sweet submissive, who also has a split personality. During the day, she continues all her chores and tasks, singing songs about nightingales and princes. But at midnight she becomes, The Stepmother, the hottest Domme around. (It seemed like a fun idea to cross Cinderella with the clash of the strong matriarch.)

Cade Lupus- a shapeshifter and cousin to Bertram. This had a very Harry Potter’esque feel to it. Remember Professor Lupin, the werewolf? This one’s much hotter, though. 🙂

Coral – A “mermaid lost” is a beautiful red head who is hiding from an evil sea witch. She runs the aquarium at Spa-NK, and uses the word “plankton” as her safe word with Jake.

There were a few smaller characters that made appearances:

Pino – the friendly but shy porter, who served everyone, had a very “puppet like” run, and confirmed several times, his incessant need to always be honest. (hehe, Pinocchio)

Bram- the Dom that first offered to “play” with Jillian in the dungeon. Bertram became very angry, and told Jillian to stay away from this “blood sucking bastard”. (obviously a vampire; and since  Bram Stoker wrote “Dracula”, it just made sense 🙂 )

Bertram made another maid cry, when he yelled at her for falling asleep on the job again – Her name was Rory. (this may have been hard to see. Aurora from sleeping Beauty)

At the beginning of the story, Jake took Jillian away from their village because she threw rocks at a disrespectful rich Lord’s house, and threatened to burn his house down. LOL, she also called him a pig. (I like pig references in stories with wolves 🙂 )

Both Bertram and Cade originally lost their girlfriends to three men. Tom, Dick and Harry. (It was later changed to just Cade’s loss. We thought it might be difficult for these three men to handle two feisty women. 🙂 )

Mrs. Hubber – is the woman who helps in the kitchen. She is elderly and has a lot of children. :)(old mother Hubbard)

Even though it’s not mentioned much, there is a spa at the back of the lodge (hence the SPA in Spa – NK). It was first run by a hair dresser and masseuse with reeeeeeeeeeally long hair. – ok, her name was Petra, not Rapunzel. There is an adaptation of Grimm’s Rapunzel, called, Petrosinella or Parsley (Wikipedia). LOL, the closest I could come from “Petrosinella” was Petra. There were a bunch of other cool adaptations, but no other cool names to work with, so the beautician became “Petra”.

The first time, Bertram spanks Jillian (with consent this time :)), he tells her to say “Peter Piper” if it gets to be too much.

Coral was being inattentive to her duties and let a known thief named, Robbie, into the lodge. He stole belongings from many people. (The next question is, did he give any of the loot to the poor? Robin Hood- easy!)

When Bertram catches his “little”, Redd, in a lie, she replies with,

“My, daddy, what big ears you have.” (hehe, ok, I had to use that. It was a must!)

Redd’s stuff kitty is called Mr. McBeakington, a combination of the names of the cats owned by the lovely Ms. Casey McKay.

The “Simple Simon” reference is mentioned a few times by characters, alluding to another character’s dumb comment or action.

When Jake offers his sister’s hand to Bertram, he gives Bertram a bag of coins as dowry. When Bertram tries to refuse, Jake asks if he would prefer a pig? (hehe, another pig reference for the big bad wolf)

Which reminds me, LOL, there was also a reference about Bertram being so angry at one point, he felt like blowing a house down.

And of course, what fairy tale story would be complete without an HEA? We have three, but one is actually quoted.

When Jillian and Bertram are about to mate (yeah, as in have rough awesome sex to seal the bond of their love), he asks her if she wants:

“Forever? ‘Til death do us part?”

 

She answers with,

 

“How about happily ever after?”

🙂

*****

Okay, there are probably more that I have forgotten. But that is all I could come up with for today’s post.

So how did you fare?

Did you catch all the symbolism?

Were any of them new to you?

LOL, did I miss any?

Thanks for stopping by. Since I have already capped out at 1043 words, I won’t be able to share an excerpt. But I am attaching the link for the first chapter, which can be found here.

winterstorm

In a world where fairy tales and real life collide, in which truth is sometimes stranger than fiction and romance and fetish are the norm, a winter storm forces a cast of characters to converge at a unique lodge, and three interwoven tales are set in motion.

Jillian and her brother narrowly escape a wolf attack, thanks to a shapeshifter, Bertram. As the owner of the lodge, Bertram opens Jillian’s eyes to a whole new world filled with spanking and so much more. Will she keep fighting her submission, or allow herself the chance for true love?

Coral is a fugitive—hiding from herself, her true desires, and the sea witch to whom she owes a great debt. She fears showing real emotion and letting herself be free, but Jake Hill’s dominating presence beckons her to yield to him—not just her body, but her heart, mind, and soul. When the sea witch demands retribution, though, she may lose the one man she has come to trust.

When Faye blunders while casting a spell upon her landlord, he claims her as his slave until she can undo the magic, and she finds herself subject to his firm discipline. As her attraction to him grows, Faye fears she will give in to the handsome shifter and forever lose her maidenhood, and consequently her powers and the ability to fix her mistake.

Even as all three women struggle with surrendering to the dominant men they have fallen for, each finds herself on a journey to discover her true self. Can they find a way to yield to love without losing themselves in the process?

Spanking A-Z Challenge, V: Vulnerability

spank A2Z

 

Welcome back to the Spanking A-Z Challenge. Today’s letter is “V” for vulnerability.

There is a certain vulnerability in publishing your book. (Or at least that’s how I feel as a new author, anyway. 🙂 )

I am wavering right now between sheer excitement and total “Oh, Sh*t! I am really going to be out there, as in really. out. there!

I’m talking about the exciting fact  that I finally sent in my running book for copy edits.

Last week, I was beyond ecstatic; like this big load had been lifted off my chest. This story- my first real story- (which I started over a year ago) was FINALLY finished!

Ready to be seen by others.

Ready to be reviewed and critiqued.

Oh God!

What have I done?!?

When I released The Winter Storm with my friends, Casey McKay and Renee Rose, it was easier to hide behind the group dynamic.

I didn’t have to worry about the reviews, because I knew that they were not personally directed at me, but rather, us as a group.

This was refreshing, and gave me a wonderful warm feeling of safety. (it also helped that the reviews were very good. Except for one reviewer that disliked the fact it was a book about spanking. 🙂 )

 

But I have finally realized, for this publication,  I will be alone –  subject to the scrutinizing eye of the seasoned reviewer.

I will feel vulnerable, and very, very naked.

(I don’t like feeling naked. LOL as much as I fantasize about a humiliating, semi public spanking, yeah, I wouldn’t be able to do it. I’m not an exhibitionist.)

And writing is a form of exhibitionism, right?

But I have thought it through.

 

On one hand, it is going to be an amazing experience. I’ll get some great closure by finally finishing this story.

I’ll be able to cross it off, as my first published, solo book.

I’ll be able to much more easily move on to the other projects I have in mind. (As it turns out, my brain doesn’t like the idea of focusing on new material until it has gotten the closure it needs from the “finished product”. Hehe, if you have ever heard about my wreck of a sewing room, you will understand what I am talking about.)

So this means closure for me- in so many freaking cool ways!

 

But I will still have to prepare myself for the vulnerability that will come from being “out there” by myself.

I will most likely need to toughen up my skin, and learn to take constructive criticism without thinking of it as a personal attack.

And since I am inherently, a people pleaser, LOL, that will be a fun task. 😉

 

But I have always been a planner.

So in keeping with my need for contingencies (my husband calls it worrying. I call it being prepared 🙂 ), I have come up with possible scenarios.

1.  Just in case, everyone in the world loves it, and I become the next JK Rowling, and make a gazillion dollars; my husband is being given permission to spank me quite soundly if I become a snob. 🙂

2.  In case everyone in the whole wide world and other galaxies (including the Alpha, Beta, Gamma and Delta quadrants) despise it; then I am paying my BFF to read my reviews and filter them to me. And my husband will still be given permission to spank me quite soundly if I whine too much about reviews.

3.  In the case of anything between the above two brackets; I will take the opportunity to learn and grow, continuing to enjoy my time as an author. AND my husband will be given extra permission to spank me every day, quite soundly, because

well,

I will probably just need it. 🙂

 

So there it is.

I am about to release my new book, hopefully, next month.

As a solo author.

It is pretty special to me.

And it is about running 🙂

 

And even though I vary in extremes between how I feel, every day going into  it, I think I will live through it.

A little vulnerability never hurt anyone, right?

🙂

Please feel free to sign the petition below.

“Mr. Deane (AKA Katherine Deane’s Husband),

Please spank your wife.

A sore bottom might take some of the edge off her nerves.

Thank you,

Signed

(you)

Spank A-Z Blog Challenge, T: Take it on the Bum

spank A2Z

Welcome back for day “T” of the Spanking A-Z Challenge.

I am so excited to have a special friend with me today! Her name is Bella Bryce, and she does those awesome sweet Age Play’s from Blushing Books. She is a very sweet British gal that calls me “Katness”, and in return, I call her “Bella Button”. She loves the tutu’s and tiara’s that I make, and someday, will hopefully come visit me, so I can embrace my inner child playing hopscotch and getting spanked by a daddy (separate ones, of course. I don’t share well with others.;) ) with her.

She is here today to tell us about the fourth in her Waldorf books, The Glass House. This one is a stand alone, so you can read it, even if you haven’t read the first three. 🙂

Take it away, Bella Button! 🙂

***

Thanks so much for having me today, Katness!

Today’s excerpt is about Jon and Evelyn Fowler – the parents and background characters to one of my heroes – Bennett Fowler.  Evelyn has been meddling, which is quite normal for her. Yet, Jonathan comes to a point where the words of his son, Bennett, have finally sunk in.  The words he left his father several months before, when he had the courage to say them, were wise: “mother needs to be reined in, and you know it. Do something, please, before she drives a wedge between my future wife and me.”  When Jonathan finally realised the truth of his son’s words, and what would have otherwise been a ‘normal’ way for Evelyn to dismiss him, gets under his skin, he doesn’t think twice about how to put Bennett’s words into action.

__

“Thirty years, I’ve given you. Thirty years of marriage, two sons — you’ve wanted for nothing — don’t you dare respond. I don’t want to hear a word out of your mouth.”

Jon pointed at her. He hadn’t raised his voice at his wife in years. Mainly, because he hadn’t been around to do it, but the other reason was because she’d always beat him to it, and he never had the energy to compete. “You’ve had your say from the very beginning but now it’s time for a change. If you want this marriage to carry on, then I suggest you show me you want it by backing down. You will not step all over me any longer, Evelyn.”

She readjusted her posture and tried to save face although she felt extremely uncomfortable.

“I have had enough of your moody, arrogant tantrums; the way you control everything and everyone in this family. I don’t like how you speak to my staff, I don’t like how you dismiss me, and I absolutely despise you going behind my back. I told you to leave Bennett alone and you just couldn’t listen. You chased him when I told you to leave off. I ought to turn you across my knee like a ridiculously disobedient little girl and smack your backside raw.”

Evelyn wasn’t sure if someone put a 20 pence into her or her husband, but one of them was wound up and the other was raring to go. His tone and words were so, so unexpected. And strangely arousing.

“You even managed to turn my own butler against me! I told Willis you weren’t to leave to see Bennett and that the chauffeur wasn’t to drive you anywhere, yet they both somehow were coaxed into listening to the madam of the house.”

“You never said – ” she tried to fight back, but Jon raised his hand. “I’ve

been hearing your voice for thirty years, be quiet. It’s my turn now.”

Evelyn frowned deeply as a lump formed in her throat.

“Have a sulk. You’ll need it. You’ve been making everyone miserable, and it’s time I put a stop to it. I overheard your entire conversation with Bennett last night on the phone; I heard the way you responded to him and how you refused to apologise. It’s arrogant, selfish behaviour and it’s completely unacceptable. Beyond that, you sought him out on the day of Elisabeth’s parents’ funeral. Does your selfish agenda never end?”

She blinked several times. Evelyn hadn’t felt she was being selfish, she felt completely justified —which was, of course, a prime indication of selfishness.

“That child has just lost both of her parents, and I will be damned if I watch you try to get in the middle of her grief by chasing Bennett.”

Jon removed his blazer and dropped it on his desk. He was just warming up.

“Take your coat off,” he said, nodding toward her.

Evelyn shook her head.

“Fine, I’ll do it,” he said, and started walking in her direction.

“Lay one bloody hand on me,” she started.

“And what? You’ll phone the police?”

Evelyn gritted her teeth and tried to appear strong.

“You’re my wife, and you’ve been a bloody pain in my ass for thirty years. You’re lucky I care enough to spank you because if I didn’t, I’d be taking my ring off instead of my belt. Get to the sofa. Now, Evelyn.”             She didn’t mean to obey straightaway, but she did. She nearly jumped as she quickly slipped her coat off. Jonathan had never spoken to her in that tone, and it shocked the hell out of her. It shocked and delighted her. It also irritated and aroused her. She was far too confused to argue.  

“Take those heels off as well; you’re a naughty girl, not a sophisticated woman.”

Evelyn felt as though her various organs were beginning to meld into one massive lump of pumping blood and oxygen as she practically kicked off her Louie Vuitton heels, then scampered to the sofa like a frightened kitten. She both loved and despised Jonathan’s confidence. It was bittersweet to feel like the control and power she normally held over him being ripped out of her hands.

“On second thought, let’s do this properly. Over my knee,” Jonathan said, as he paused removing his belt. He sat down on the Chesterfield sofa and pulled his middleaged wife in her designer dress and pearls straight across his expensive suit trousers.

“Jon! Have you gone absolutely mad?” Evelyn wondered if he’d discovered an

erotic novel in the drawer of her dressing table because that was the only place he would have found her fantasising about him taking her over his lap. She daren’t even write about it on a piece of paper for fear of him finding it. That would have absolutely destroyed her if she had to communicate something so shamefully delicious.

“This is for all the spoilt behaviour I’ve had to put up with silently over the years,” he said, as he pulled his wife’s dress up and over her small hips and bottom, then pulled down her satin knickers. He was sure she was ready to move on to the bedroom, but unfortunately for her, Jonathan wasn’t entertaining foreplay. He was going to give her the thrashing she desperately needed. The play would come later.

“You aren’t really going to do this,” Evelyn’s voice quivered. She wanted him to do it, but she felt like she had to put up a fight. Otherwise, what would have been the point of her running him down for all those years?

Spanking A-Z Blog Challenge, S: Claire Overhears a Spanking

spank A2Z

Welcome to today’s “S” session of Spanking A-Z. I have a very special WIP to share.

It’s the story I started over a year and a half ago. And I am happy to say, I have finally finished it! I’ll talk more about the personal side of this journey in another post. 🙂

But today, I’m introducing Claire, the MC from my running, spanking, romance story.

Claire isn’t ready to admit it yet, but the sounds of a good old fashioned spanking, might just arouse her a bit. 😉

In this scene, Claire has just returned to her apartment.

*****

 

She walked further into the apartment and noticed Tom’s car keys on the table. She heard Jenny’s giggles from her bedroom. Someone’s having a good time, she smiled.

She passed the room on her way to the bathroom, and stopped when she heard it. That noise. The unmistakable sound of flesh striking flesh in a rhythmic pattern. Smack, smack, smack, smack, like a metronome. Oh God.

She sagged against the wall trying not to listen while not moving or breathing. Tom was spanking Jenny, and from Jenny’s moans, she was thoroughly enjoying it.

Stop spying. This is wrong. And that… A flutter of spanks preceded more of Jenny’s squeals. Her whole body heated. No, that was plain kinky. Wrong for her. Right?

So why was she still standing there with bated breath, anticipating the next smack, her panties drenched, and her breathing more rapid than after doing a track workout?

Spank A-Z Challenge, R: Records and Races!

spank A2Z

Woohoo! Most of my friends, (online and in real life) know that I am an avid runner! I love competition, and enjoy being outside.  So today’s Spank A-Z post held a number of possibilities for me:

Running, racing, recovery, records (personal records)…

I decided to go with something that sounded really fun!

Guinness Book of World Records!

LOL, I found a ton of material to use. There are a lot of very silly records!

But I found one that was near and dear to my heart.

Running Records!

 

Here are a few one mile records that are pretty awesome!

The fastest mile run by a woman, is 4:12.56, run by Svetlana Masterkova from Switzerland, set in 1996.

The fastest mile run by a man, is 3:43.13, run by Hiccham El Guerrouj from Italy, set in 1999.

 

Then there’s the really fun one.

The World’s fastest mile – piggy back race!

 

Yes, it’s just like it sounds.

One person carries another on his or her back for one mile.

http://www.guinnessworldrecords.com/world-records/speed/fastest-mile-piggy-back-race

 

Ashrita Furman (USA) carried  Bipin Larkin for one full mile in NY, in 2010, setting a new record of 12:47.

Ok, seriously, I could do that! I know I could! I have a 48 pound kid who would love to set a Guinness Record by holding onto mommy’s back for a mile.

But I can’t find the regulations for this one. If I am 105 (maybe 110, depending on the time of the year 🙂 ), and am carrying close to 50% my body weight, that should be enough right? Or is there a certain age and weight restriction?

Hmmm, I wonder.

This one is definitely on my list of “things I would love to do before I get old and need knee replacement surgery”.

🙂

Another fun “R” to mention is Races!

Tara Finnegan was kind enough to share this really cool video with me.

It’s called the “Wife Carrying World Championships.”

Now, THIS one looks really cool!

 

250 meters of obstacle course, in which the team that completes  the fastest overall time, wins.

There’s just one other matter.

The team is made up of a husband carrying his wife.

LOL, you have to watch some of these poor shmucks falling over in the water pit!

Hehe, it’s funny to watch, but I would probably prefer to be the husband for this one.

****

There you have it. Some of my favorite “R”s. And they incorporated my other favorite, “R”, running.

Yay!

Spank A-Z Challenge, Q: Queen Victoria

spank A2Z

Welcome back for day “Q” of the Spanking A-Z Blog Challenge!

I am very honored to have my good friend, Etta Stark, joining me today to talk about her new book, “Lady Westbrook’s Discovery”.

I am about halfway through it right now, and it is sooooooo much stinkin’ fun! Holy cow, I love how she has combined the time period, with a ton of real life facts (without being boring!), a great plot; infused with a lot of humor. I love her main characters’ sharp wits and banter. This story is a so much fun!

And the excerpt she chose for today?!? Holy cow, I adored this scene! If I was not already reading it, I would have picked it up immediately, based off this one single scene. 🙂

Here’s Etta to talk a little bit more about her story, and even better, she is using up my dreaded “Q” for me. 🙂

Q is for Queen Victoria

Hi Katherine. Thanks for having me!

I’m writing about Queen Victoria today as I have always been interested in the period in which she reigned. Both my books, Lady Westbrook’s Discovery and His Lordship’s Apprentice were both set in the Victorian period as is my current work-in-progress. Also ‘Queen Victoria’ starts with a ‘Q’ which is handy. An awful lot of things don’t.

Victoria was a bit of a record breaker. Her reign of 63 years 7 months in the longest of any ruler in Britain and the longest for any female ruler anywhere. Although our present Queen presumably has her eyes on the record these days having clocked up sixty two and a bit years so far. Come on your majesty! You can do it!

The Victorians are considered to have been a pretty repressed and stuffy bunch which is a bit unfair. Certainly in the earlier part of Victoria’s reign the nobility were as decadent and flirty as they had been during the preceding Georgian and Regency eras. Things got a bit more outwardly serious during the latter part of the Victorian period. Although by that time photography had been invented as had moving pictures. Book printing techniques meant that books were plentiful and cheap. The Victorians took these inventions and naturally their thoughts turned to sexy, naked ladies. Basically, the Victorians pioneered bringing pornography to the masses.

It’s probably safe to say for all their correct behaviour in public, there must have been all manner of kinky stuff going on behind closed doors. Although that’s probably true of all eras. I do hope so.

Excerpt:

She lay back in bed in order to dutifully receive her new husband’s advances. Felix was still fully dressed, which surprised Margaret. She’d expected him to prepare for bed as she had done.

He saw her lying in bed, beneath the counterpane, and approached her with a half-smile on his lips.

 “You’re ready and waiting, I see.”

 “Yes I thought it best we get it out of the way as soon as possible.”

 “Out of the way?”

 “Yes. I appreciate that you will want to consummate our union. We are man and wife now. It is expected. It seemed best to get it over with quickly.”

 “Hmm. Sit up.”

 Margaret did as she was told, pulling herself into a sitting position still beneath the bed covers.

She felt herself suddenly and unceremoniously being lifted from the bed and hauled face down over Felix’s lap. Before she had a moment to gather her wits, she felt the force of his hand administering a series of hard swats. He spanked her quickly and thoroughly on every square inch of her barely-covered rear. The force of the spanking left her bottom feeling sore and full of warmth, which was spreading quickly to her belly.

 The spanking apparently over, Felix lifted Margaret from her position across his knees and sat her beside him on the bed.

 “What was that for?” asked Margaret indignantly.

 “Consider it a short sharp lesson. I’m a liberal-minded chap, and I’m prepared to accept almost any kind of language in the bedroom, but what I’m not prepared to accept are the phrases ‘get it out of the way’ or ‘get it over with quickly’ in regards to our lovemaking. You had best remember that.”

 Margaret opened her mouth to protest, but Felix silenced her with a kiss. His lips pressed against hers as he explored her mouth with his tongue. He entwined his left hand in her hair while his right hand stroked the smooth skin of her face before travelling down towards her breast. His hand ran over first one breast, then the other, stroking her nipples firmly with his thumb so that they stood erect beneath her nightdress. The feeling was so tantalisingly exquisite that Margaret instinctively closed her eyes and let out a low moan. Felix’s hand then moved from her breast to the hem of her nightdress, which he pushed up as his hand reached for the soft folds between her legs. She was so surprised that she instinctively reached down to cover herself with her hand. Felix gently batted her hand away with his own. She didn’t resist. She was savouring the feeling of Felix’s dexterous fingers massaging her most intimate area. It was extraordinary. She had never felt anything like it. Desire and longing rose within her, and the touch of his fingers sent the feeling of ecstasy spiralling up inside her. The pressure building and building inside of her until she felt she would explode. And then suddenly relief came – a surge of fulfilment crashing over her. She threw her arms around Felix and gripped her fingernails tightly into his upper arms. A low groan escaped from her lips as wave after wave of sensuous relief juddered through her.

 She felt satisfied and sensuous in a way she had never done before. She looked at her husband with half-closed eyes. “You’re still dressed,” she said.

 “Mm. I am,” he agreed. “Undress me.”

Synopsis:

Lady Margaret Westbrook is a forty-one year old widow who has not given romance a second thought in the ten years since her husband passed away. When she meets Felix Oliver, a brilliant scientist fifteen years her junior, she is surprised by his determination to win her heart. Lady Westbrook discovers a passion within herself that she never knew existed.

However, accepting Felix Oliver’s proposal will mean relinquishing her title, lowering her social standing and risking both the gossip of polite society and the disapproval of her grown-up sons. Not only that but he has made it clear that he is a firm believer in corporal punishment for women and that consenting to be his wife will mean frequent trips across his lap for a sound spanking. How far is Lady Westbrook willing to go on this journey of discovery?

Spanking A-Z Challenge, O: Oppa Gangnam Style

spank A2Z

 

Welcome back for another fun day of spanking A-Z! Today’s letter is “O”, and I absolutely had to share my favorite music video from last year.

Oppa Gangnam Style

🙂

Holy cow, this video is so funny. I honestly don’t know what the words mean. But if you’ve seen any of my replies in the other posts (yes, I had no idea what the lyrics for “Like a Virgin” meant, until my adult years 🙂 ), you already know that I am more in tune with the music and expression of a song than I am by the words, anyway.

This is probably why I thought:

The heavy metal band was called “Inks”

“Blinded by the Light was  about being “wrapped up like a douche”

Greased lightning caused “the chicks to cream” , (never thought twice about that one).

I had no problem whatsoever with Sandy’s suit getting “damp” when Danny ran by her.

And I still to this day, don’t know what most of my favorite Madonna songs were about.

But I could probably take a guess; and there’s always google, when I’m ready.

 

LOL, I have always enjoyed the innocent side of things, and liked being blissfully unaware.

So here is my favorite song and video to just party and dance to.

Even though I have no idea what the words mean.

Have fun, ride a fake horse, and smack a little bootie!

🙂

 

Have a great day!
