Author Spotlight: Erzabet Bishop

 ErzabetfloweryWe’re excited to have author Erzabet Bishop here today to answer some questions about what makes her tick…

What’s your preference in fiction…domestic discipline or erotic spanking? Why?

I have written several stories with erotic spanking but have an interest in domestic discipline. There are so many possibilities you can have with a 24/7 system in place and a power structure set up.

 Do you see a difference between spanking fiction and BDSM? What is it?

Yes. You don’t always have to have BDSM with spanking. A good solid spanking can just lead to a hot sex scene.

 Did you read spanking fiction before you started writing it?

Yes. I loved the zing I felt when I read the stories and knew I had to write something in the same vein.

Tell us about your current release.

I have several. The first one is Fetish Fair, a choose your own erotic adventure. It is full of possibilities and there are several scenes with spanking.

FF_highBlurb:

Kari’s BFF tricks her into attending a fetish expo, promptly losing her as they arrive. She can find her friend or maybe, just maybe find the secret to her own heart’s desires? Only a choice can open the door. If she dares.

The second release is the Sci Spanks anthology.

Blurb: Sci Spanks 2014 offers fifteen sexy spanking stories from fifteen authors. You’ll find everything from sweet, tender romance to laugh-out-loud humor and references to old-school science fiction popular culture. You’ll find a mixture of romantic pairings, from M/F to F/F to M/M. Some stories are harsher, while others appeal to the softest-hearted romantic. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

 Bossy_final_180Who was the first person you told that you were writing spanking fiction? What was his/her reaction?

I honestly don’t remember. It just sort of came about organically in my erotic writing and I haven’t turned back since.

If you were asked to make a soundtrack for your novel, what songs would be on it?

Music can really speak about what I’m writing, but I often don’t listen when I write. Here are some songs that have meaning when I’m dreaming of my work.

“Demons” by Imagine Dragons

“Torpedo” by Jillette Johnson

“My Oh My” by Tristan Prettyman

“Counting Stars” by One Republic

“Drive” by Melissa Ferrick

scispanksanthologycoverredo

“Unconditional” by Katy Perry

“Hold On” by Colbie Caillat

Skeleton by The Good Natured

“The Walker” by Fitz and the Tantrums

“Radioactive” by Imagine Dragons

“Wildest Moments” by Jessie Ware

“Fetish” by Joan Jett and the Blackhearts

“My Moon” by Mary Lambert

“This Heart” by Mary Lambert

“She Keeps Me Warm” by Mary Lambert

“Boom Clap” by Charli XCX

“Not About Angels” by Birdy

Also anything by Sia, Florence and the Machine, Peter Phippen and Peter Murphy.

When you’re not writing, what else do you like to do?

Between my job as a bookstore manager, sleeping and keeping up with my family I am pretty much always writing. I like to crochet, read, bake and watch monster movies when I get the chance.

Are you currently or have you ever been in a spanking relationship? Do you use real life experiences in your books?

Yes. To a limited degree. Most of my stories come from my overactive imagination.

 What is your favorite spanking implement?

I’m torn. Wooden spoon or paddle? Hmmm. Then there is the intimacy of the bare hand striking the bottom. So many choices….I love them all.

Spanking is a hot topic that pushes people’s buttons. They either like it or they don’t. What do you think makes it hot, both positive and negative? 

Positive:

There is a bond that forms between the spanker and the spankee.

The release from bottled up emotion for both parties.

A power structure based on trust that benefits both parties whether it is erotic spanking or domestic discipline.

Negative:

Misunderstanding that spanking is abuse

Spanking can inflect a control issue that some people are not willing to dialog in.

Thanks for having me on the blog today. I hope you will check out Fetish Fair and stop by my Facebook page and let me know what you think. More adventures are in the works. If you missed Sci Spanks this year, pick up a copy of the anthology while it is still .99 and mark your calendars for the autumn and winter events coming up. Lots of authors, some great stories and tons of prizes to be had by all.

Happy reading,

Erzabet Bishop

Excerpt: Fetish Fair by Erzabet Bishop

“How do you choose your subs?” Kari blushed, staring down at the pattern the fishnets made on her legs. She was going to have to get some of these. They were sexy beyond belief. I can’t believe I just asked him that!

Master Carraway ran a finger down the fastenings and met her startled expression with a warm smile. “That, my dear, is a very leading question.”

Kari blushed. “I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have asked.”

His smiled turned downward. “No. That’s not what I meant at all.” He patted her back and turned her around to face him. “I choose my subs carefully. There has to be a trust there. A chemistry.”

Kari swallowed. He was standing so close she could feel the heat from his body. “Oh.” Her pussy spasmed as the scent of his spicy musk filled her nostrils. “Do you have a sub now?”

Master Carraway chuckled. “No. Not at the present time.” He tipped her chin upward, looking into her eyes. “Why, are you applying for the position? And here I thought we had only just met?”

Kari swallowed, her mouth suddenly dry. He was daring her. The bastard thought she was too afraid. She lifted her chin and stared him in the eyes, defiant. “What if I was?”

“Now that would be intriguing.” He bent down and captured her lips with his, a feather light touch of intimate perusal. He drew back and wound a hand in her hair, pulling her closer. “Do you understand what that would mean? To be a submissive?” His eyes bored into hers, his breath teasing her lips, oh so close. She strained to meet his lips and he yanked back on her hair. “No. Answer the question.”

The sting brought a gasp from her and a surge of fluid to her moist folds. Outrage and shock warred with arousal. “I should hope so.” She snorted, her eyes daring him to go further. “I write about BDSM.” Kari blinked moisture from her eyes, annoyed that it had stung, but equally surprised at her body’s response. The pain had excited her more than she thought it would have.

“Do you?” He stood back, releasing his grip on her hair. “I live the lifestyle and there are many who think they know, but the first hint of not being in control, they run for the hills back to their vanilla lives.” Master Carraway pulled her face inches from his own. “I can’t help but wonder…”

“What?” Kari cocked her head, trying to understand his elusive comment.

“What flavor are you?” He brushed his lips to hers as he pulled her against him long enough to crush her breasts against his chest.

The Coach’s Discipline by Katherine Deane – A Great Spanking Romance!

logo

thecoachsdisciplineReviewed by Tara Finnegan

The Coach’s Discipline is a heartwarming story of Claire, an athlete struggling with health (bulimia) and emotional issues which hold her back from success. She meets Coach Nick who teaches her to trust in herself and others and to fulfil her potential, with the aid of domestic discipline. As Claire’s trust in Nick grows, she begins to develop into all she can be, athletically and in personal development and a delightful romance blossoms between the pair.

I found I was rooting for Claire for the entire story, I felt her pain, her frustrations and her glimmers of hope as they came along. There are some fun moments that will have you laughing, especially at Claire’s tendency to speak before she thinks. Other tense moments will make you chew your nails as misunderstandings occur.  The book is generously peppered with spankings, and sexual discovery with some lovely hot scenes. (There is one scene that gives a whole new meaning to telephone sex which is quite delicious.) While it may not have been the most sexually explicit book I have ever read, probably a heat rating of four rather than five, that suited the story perfectly.

Both Claire and Nick were wonderful main characters, strong but humanly flawed and both had such depth that the reader can’t help but become their friends. You will be sad to see the story end, as then your friends move on to another world.

The plot was very well developed and entirely believable. The book flowed very nicely too, never feeling rushed or nothing dragged out too long. There was not one spanking that I considered unwarranted or unreasonable. I know I am supposed to give some constructive criticism as part of a review purpose, but honestly, to do so, I feel I would be nit picking for the sake of it.  It was an excellent job from beginning to end. It’s not often that I read a book and don’t find at least something I might have preferred was handled differently but this was one of the rarities. I really look forward to reading more from this author and highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a great spanking romance.

Lady Westbrook’s Discovery by Etta Stark – Hilarious, sexy, unique spanking romance

logo

lady westbrooks discovery pic

 

By Katherine Deane

This story was hilarious and sexy, and quite unique among the spanking romance stories I have read.

Widowed Lady, Margaret Westbrook is 41 years old, and quite content with her life. Well, the reading, and science and inventing and “knowledge obtaining” side of her life. She is a smart, ambitious, open minded woman, not at all like the other society women.

But she is bored and unfulfilled by the Lady’s society meetings of flower arranging and rose garden cultivating. So she invites experimental physicist, Felix Oliver to talk about electricity at the next Waverly Ladies society meeting she hosts.

Felix is quick witted and charming (and young and handsome!), and completely enthralls the ladies. But he is   drawn to Margaret and her sharp intellect.

A spark flies between them when he casually mentions spanking, during a private dinner, and Margaret opens her mind to the possibilities of a friendship with the younger man.

As their friendship grows, Margaret becomes more conflicted by their obvious age difference. He is only a few years older than her eldest son. So she chooses to ignore the heat growing between them.

When she finally does acquiesce to a courtship, her sons and the Ladies of the community express their disapproval.

But they choose to continue their exploration of their romance.

What I loved about this story, was how different their relationship was, than in a lot of other spanking romances. Usually, the male MC is very dominant and authoritative, and has no problems taking the female MC over his knee.

Felix is dominant and witty and handsome, but does not strike me as arrogant or prideful. In fact, one of my favorite scenes includes Margaret calling him a dandy.

I almost spit my tea out of my mouth! It was hilarious! He didn’t bat an eye. I was sure he was going to get all dommy and toss her over his knee for a harsh reminder about being respectful. But he didn’t. And I actually liked it!

This man knew exactly who he was, and wasn’t afraid to be himself. He wasn’t a caveman type, nor was he a wimpy type to bend over to her will. He accepted her as a true equal, but wasn’t afraid to exert his authority when needed.

He accepted her strengths and ambitions, and made the perfect complement for this not so common Lady.

They were perfect for each other!

And their banter was hilarious!

But what I loved most about this book, was its authenticity to the time period of London, in the 1870’s.  I loved that he was working on his own electricity projects, at the same time as Edison. And adding in the National Suffragist’s society, was a perfect addition to the details of the story.

I loved the fun spankings, and witty banter, and open mindedness of the MCs, showing their willingness to be “outside the norm”. I also loved the hot sex scenes and wonderful romance.

It made for a deliciously fun and entertaining story!

Coach’s Discipline by Katherine Deane

Claire Jacobs always dreamed of making it to the Olympic Trials in the marathon. Unfortunately, she has a habit of getting in her own way. Enter Nick Fox, a no-nonsense coach, willing to use unconventional methods to bring her in line. Traumatized by her last coach and still recovering from self-destructive habits, Claire finds it hard to trust Nick’s authority about what she can and can’t handle on the trails. Still, her attraction for him deepens, even when she discovers he believes in good old-fashioned spanking as a method of correction.

As Nick spends more time with Claire, she enchants him with her drive and deep commitment to help her fellow runners. But when she gets into an argument with a teammate, he realizes he only has one option—to give the talented woman he cares about the first spanking of her life, a spanking that is not going to be fun for either of them.

Claire and Nick grow closer and she comes to crave Nick’s dominance and direction. Discovering the emotional healing and strength to succeed during training, she moves past her shyness and self-doubt to step into a leading role with the young women on the team. But when team politics, jealousy and misunderstandings create drama, will she revert back to her old pattern of running away? Or can she learn to trust in love and race toward her goals with an open heart?

Publisher’s Note: Coach’s Discipline is an erotic romance novel that includes spanking, including domestic discipline in a contemporary setting, anal play, sexual scenes, elements of BDSM, and more. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.

Available for sale on Saturday!

The Marriage Pact by Dinah McLeod – Refreshingly different and deliciously hot

logo


by Tara Finnegan

On leaving high-school, Shana breaks her sweetheart and oldest friend’s heart by refusing to marry him, choosing instead to pursue her dream career as a doctor.  Brody is both heartbroken and his pride is severely wounded, and their long term friendship is also lost as Shana moves away to college and Brody refuses to speak to her.

They meet years later, when both have matured considerably. In a tender moment of forgiveness they make a pact that if they are both single at thirty five, they will get married. Shana can’t help being drawn to the more assertive, grown up Brody, although her mind fights any attraction, because of their past.

They skit around one another, meeting occasionally over the years. When Shana is in her mid thirties, her mother’s failing health brings her back to live in her home town, where she is asked to act as her best friends maid of honour. It just so happens that Brody is best man, a secret that had been kept from Shana, who totally overreacts on the day.

Finally they get to talking, forgive past hurts and embark on a new, more mature relationship, incorporating domestic discipline.

While I had come across other works incorporating a marriage pact, what I found refreshingly different about this book, was how Ms McLeod breaks the normal spanking romance formula mould. One of the tricky things about writing in this genre is that the pressure is on to get the hero and heroine together too fast, often to the detriment of letting the characters get to know one another and establish the chemistry.  But in this book that doesn’t happen properly until two thirds of the way in. And yet in spite of this, there is considerable heat in some of the earlier chapters, so the reader won’t feel cheated.  Spanking enthusiasts will have to wait a while for spanking action, but there is plenty of it to satisfy all towards the latter part of the book not to mention some pretty darn hot love scenes.

Another of the things I really enjoyed about The Marriage Pact was the friendship between Shana and old school pal Becky. Many of the moments between them were very realistic, some funny, some sad and some just sweet. It was one of those friendships that stay with you for life, although it did get tested.

While I loved how Ms. McLeod allowed her characters to develop well before getting the action on, if I am totally honest, there were one or two occasions when I did wish the back story had been condensed a little more.

At one stage, I was kind of getting on my high horse thinking oh yeah, the man has to be right, but the wind was fairly taken out of my sails when Brody admitted his weakness. Well done, Dinah! I do love a man who is strong enough to admit when he was wrong; I think it gives a much more likeable hero.

I would recommend this book, because it breaks the mould, has well developed characters, and added to that some hot sex scenes.

Eddie, My Love (Romantek 3) by Patricia Green – an absolute delight!

logo

By Etta Stark

Eddie, My Love is the third book in Patricia Green’s Romantek series, an original and highly imaginative story premise which combines sci-fi and historical fiction. It’s the 22nd century and people are able to take literal dream holidays with Romantek – fully immersive virtual reality fantasies set in a time and place of their choosing. It’s a fantastic idea which allows Patricia Green to set the books anywhere she wants. The first book, The Winner, was set in the Wild West and the second, Charlotte and the Pirate, was set on the high seas during the golden age of piracy.

This one takes place in 1950s Los Angeles. The heroine, going by her character name of June for most of the story, has chosen a private eye film noir adventure for her dream holiday and finds herself paired with Eddie Strong, Private Investigator as the two of them try to get to the bottom of the suspicious death of a society lady.

I hadn’t previously given much thought to how well a hard-boiled private investigator would suit being the hero of a spanking romance. Very well indeed it turns out, at least in Patricia Green’s capable hands. Eddie is a Philip Marlow-esque character, all cynical eyebrow raises and snappy put-downs. When I checked my notes for this book, it turns out that every single thing I had highlighted was a cool or sexy line delivered by Eddie. “This is it, kid,” for example, “Tell me yes or no, but don’t make it maybe.” Every time he said anything like that to June, I just sort of melted a bit. I swear if it would have been possible to draw little pink hearts around Eddie’s best dialogue on my Kindle, I probably would have done.

June and Eddie have great chemistry and they manage to combine their investigations with getting to know one another very well indeed. The ‘getting to know one another’ process involves Eddie putting June across his knee pretty frequently, you’ll be pleased to know. Usually for doing something dangerous that he’s just told her not to. She gets three spankings in a single day at one point. She’s not a fast learner.

The mystery that they need to solve is properly thought out and executed as the pair rush around picking up clues and eliminating suspects. It made me wonder whether Patricia Green needed to have bothered with the Romantek premise at all. The story would have worked just as well as straightforward 1950s crime fiction.

I do like Romantek holidays as a framing device though. It gives the stories a similar vibe to time travel stories as we see the characters reacting and adapting to the ways of the past while looking at everything from a modern perspective. Or rather a futuristic perspective in this given that the characters come from a time at least a hundred years ahead of our own where amongst other things private cars and carbohydrates are no longer commonplace. Patricia Green certainly has her work cut out for her as keeping all her plates spinning. The geek in me wants to understand exactly how these holidays work and what the rules are. Why for example was Audrey in the first book allowed to use her real name in her dream when the characters in this one are specifically prohibited from mentioning theirs? Why the massive secrecy in the first place? And why are there apparently no web forums in the 22nd century?

I hope Patricia Green plans to write plenty more Romantek adventures. They’re a bit like Doctor Who in that the stories can be set literally anywhere in space and time while still sharing a common narrative.

It would be great to see some of the characters from earlier books recurring in subsequent ones. Particularly Rex, Romantek’s counter cyber-terrorism expert and the evil hacker from the second book.

One of the features of Romantek’s dream holidays is that the characters that you get to interact with may either be computer simulations or real people enjoying Romantek holidays of their own. So far in the series, all the protagonists – including June and Eddie – have always fallen in love with other participants. The premise has left me wondering what it would be like to fall in love within Romantek when the object of your desires is a computer program. It must be easy to do, particularly if they were specifically programmed to fulfil your fantasies. It would be a really interesting area for Patricia Green to explore although I don’t know how feasible it would be to write a successful romance where one of the heroes doesn’t actually exist. It would be a hell of an obstacle to overcome.

Luckily that isn’t a problem for June. Eddie is all real man. I have loved all of the Romantek stories so far but Eddie, my love is definitely my favourite. The 1950s film noir setting is perfectly realised and the dialogue and character interaction is tremendous fun. The spankings are an absolute delight. It doesn’t matter in what order you read the books in series – you don’t have to have read either of the earlier books, to enjoy this one fully. Just make sure you come back to them later.

The Darlington Incident- A Delightful Caper

logo

darlingtonincidentBy Casey McKay

Eliza Hunt has worked her whole life trying to fade into the background. She has a birthmark that mars the side of her face, so she doesn’t like to draw attention to herself. When she attends a fete at the Westerfield Estate and ends up in the center of a caper involving stolen documents and government secrets, she certainly catches someone’s eye. A man posing as someone named Lord Darlington starts tracking her every move, and she finds the attention is not at all unwanted.

The Darlington Incident is chockful of mystery, intrigue, false identities, and not to mention some super hot spankings. I love when a hero is flawed and it is almost as if the heroine saves him from himself. Renee Rose always does an exquisite job of this– making her heroes dominant and sexy, while also giving them a flaw that makes them human.

Andrews wants Eliza to stop putting herself down and come out of her shell. He wishes she could see herself the way he sees her. But Andrews also needs to take his own advice on similar matters. When something from his past comes back to haunt him, it shakes him to his core and makes him doubt the man he is. It’s up to Eliza to step in to make him realize his past has nothing to do with their future.

This is another home run from Ms. Rose. If you have been keeping up with her other Westerfield books: The Westerfield Affair and The Reddington Scandal- you will love this new addition. If you have not read any of them, The Darlington Incident is not a bad place to start, you can read it as a stand alone, but I don’t know why you’d want to!
