Love’s Reprise – Pick up a copy of this book, stat


By Dinah McLeod

I have a confession to make: I don’t read F/f fiction, as a general rule. Gasp! Yet, Love’s Reprise has made a convert out of me with its well-written prose, feisty, fiery characters and memorable stories. Each of these stories is a love story, but what you’ll get is so much more. They are each chock-full of steamy sex scenes that will fog up your computer scene as well as…you guessed it! Strong, dominant women who like to take charge and spank the ones they love.

If you’re looking for hot scenes and tender romances—and some rekindled flames that burn rather hot—then I suggest you pick up a copy of this book, stat.

“Complicated Gifts” by Anastasia Vitsky is a story that engages you immediately. Once best friends, Leila and Carene have grown into more. While the hot-tempered Carene is used to being spanked by Leila, it now takes on a different, often sexy vibe. Leila is a renowned musician with the Philharmonic recovering from an injury that leaves her out of sorts. Carene tries to help the oft-bratty Leila the only way she knows how. This was a wonderfully entertaining story that, in my humble opinion, ended too soon. I loved that this story, in addition to being sexy also had depth that I didn’t expect in a short story.

If you like a little bit of haunting and suspense to go along with your love story, then “Broken Promises” by Olivia Starke is the story for you! In this story, Bet is killed by her lover, Edith’s husband for the sin of loving his life. Unwilling to find peace even after he’s gotten his revenge, he haunts their house after his death and frightens away any who would try to make a home there. Until Tabby, his and Edith’s great granddaughter…

good narrative essay

For me, the hidden gem of this book was “Broken Dreams” by Cassandre Dane. The character, Ginger, a popular rock star, is as fun as her life is heart wrenching. Married to a famous actor, Ginger has always known what she needs—to be dominated. Unfortunately for her, Draeven is anything but the authoritative, loving figure she needs in her life. Instead, he uses harsh words and her own need against her, dominating her with cruelty. With a life such as this, is it any wonder she can’t stop thinking about the one that got away, her ex-girlfriend Sammy?

“Kimmy” by Kate Richards is a deeply touching story about Kimmy whose wife, Kyra, died in a plane crash. She is reluctant to move on, even though everyone tells her she should, and finds love where she least expects it. Expect to get misty eyed from these poignantly written scenes!

Last, but certainly not least, is “Another Dance” by Lucy Felthouse. Eden and Janine have been best friends and inseparable for most of their lives. That all ends when Eden kisses Janine and her friend kisses her back. Horrified by what she’s feeling, Janine runs away and refuses to talk to Eden, even weeks later. For the past ten years she’s avoided her former friend like the plague, but now that her sister is getting married—to Janine’s brother, no less!—she has to face the music. Can they ever be friends again? Or maybe more?

This was a highly entertaining, thoroughly enjoyable book! All the stories were well written and interesting. Give it a read—you’ll be glad you did!

Little Dove by Erin M. Leaf


By Kristen Elyon

NOTE: This story does NOT have spanking in it

Right away I’m hooked into the story with two friends talking over coffee about something that shouldn’t be discussed in a coffee shop. It made me giggle because they were talking about something so serious and sexual and yet anyone could overhear them. Lila is a overworked girl who needs some time alone so her friend gives Lila her cabin for the snowy weekend. Once at the cabin Lila meets Theo (her long time crush) and he gives her the chance to change her life forever. He offers her the chance to relax and let someone else take control.

After a bit of talking and safe word usage, Theo ties her up with her own scarves and then makes little origami cranes that he puts all around her body, in perfect places to make her squirm. This part was simply beautiful. He used a mirror to show her how she looked so she could see how he saw her. She cried when she saw it and the emotion was so raw in that chapter, it was so extremely well done that I cried myself.

He continues to adorn her with some ties and bring her closer and closer to her orgasm. I think one of my favorite lines in the book is
“You’re killing me,” she croaked.
“No.” He shook his head. “I’m just making sure that when you fly, you remember it forever.”

That gave me shivers! Theo is really going all out! He has been ignoring his own desires just to make her have the best experience ever. He uses all of her own belongings to make the experience even more personal. From her scarves to her bobby pins… he truly takes the time and effort to make it an experience she won’t forget.

The characters were so well done, thought out and just perfect that I could have known them for all my life. I was able to really see into their lives instead of just “reading about it.” I was able to feel Lila’s emotion, her fear about trusting Theo… then the heat and passion once she finally said yes. The author did a fantastic job with the details in this story. I totally recommend this book to anyone who loves minor BDSM and romances. Five Wonderful Gold Stars!

Constance Masters Makes a Soundtrack for The Man of Her House


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

Constance Masters: My first preference would be domestic discipline. That being said though it’s hard to not combine the two and I do like erotic spanking…a lot.

SRR: Did you read spanking fiction before you started writing it?

 Constance Masters: The simple answer would be yes. Before I found spanking fiction I used to study the backs of books, always choosing ones that I thought might contain a spanking or two or at least a dominant man if that’s all I could get. It was such a thrill when you came on one unexpectedly. Like most of us that enjoy spanking fiction I just about wore out those pages reading and reading.

SRR: Tell us about your current release

 Constance Masters:  The Title of my new release is The Man Of Her House. It’s a romantic spanking novel with domestic discipline theme. This one is published by Stormy Night Publications and the cover was of course done by Korey Mae Johnson.


When her abysmal grades leave her suspended from college for the semester, twenty year old Alyssa sees no option but to return to her childhood home, which she expects to find empty while her mother is away. It comes as quite a shock when a man she has never met waltzes

in as if he owns the place, introduces himself as Jesse, and informs her that he is living in the home at Alyssa’s mother’s suggestion while completing the repair work she hired him to do.

An even bigger shock soon follows when her refusal to listen to reason lands her over the admittedly handsome interloper’s knee for a sound spanking. Jesse informs her that she is welcome to stay in the house with him, provided that she behaves herself and pulls her own weight. Alyssa has other ideas and is fully prepared to make his life as miserable as she can until he throws in the towel on the whole idea.

Unfortunately for her, Jesse is more than ready to back up his warnings with a firm, work-hardened hand applied to her bare bottom as often as necessary.

Despite her wounded pride and her stinging behind, Alyssa finds herself excited by the idea of a man who cares enough to stand up to her and keep her in line. She begins to wonder if Jesse could come to see her as more than a naughty girl in need of discipline, but will her bratty attitude drive him away before romance can bloom, or will Jesse take her in hand and make her his own?


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

Constance Masters: The first person I told was my husband. He thought it was great at first and was happy for me and very proud. If I’m to be honest though he became a little paranoid when the reality set in. He typed Constance Masters into Google and it came up with spanking fiction. Obviously that was going to happen at some point but he’s a private man and old school. That was a long time ago now and he doesn’t worry so much now about people finding out. A lot of people know about my writing now anyway so there isn’t really anything to hide.

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

1. This House Is Not A Home

 2. Dance With My Father sung by Luther Vandross

 3. Everything Has Changed

 4. Everything by Michael Buble with a slight change in the lyric of the first verse.

The lyrics now are…

 You’re the falling star, you’re the getaway car.

You’re the line in the sand when I go to far.

You’re the swimming pool on an August day.

And you’re the perfect thing to say.

 I would change the second line to “I’m the line in the sand when you go to far.”

SRR: If your book was turned into a movie, who would you choose to play the leading characters?

Constance Masters:  If my book was turned into a movie I think I would like Chris Hemsworth (Thor with shorter hair) to play the the male lead and for the female lead Molly Quinn (Castle’s daughter Alexis)

SRR: What is your favorite spanking implement?

Constance Masters: There’s nothing like the hand really is there?


As he opened the door Jesse’s blood started to boil. The peace he’d been feeling a few minutes before had melted away. Things were no better than before. Without even bothering to call her this time, he marched straight up the stairs.

“Alyssa! Alyssa open this door.” He rapped noisily when the music was suddenly turned up full blast.

“I can’t hear you!” Alyssa called through the noise.

“Then why did you answer?”

“I’m psychic!”

“Good, then you’ll know what’s about to happen next! You have to come out sometime.The longer you take, the worse it’ll be.”

“Kiss my ass!” she shouted over the top of the music.

Jesse shook his head before stomping up the hallway to his own room. He slammed the door without going inside, hoping his ruse would fool Alyssa. He crept back across the hallway silently to wait as long as it took.

Jesse listened intently when the music was suddenly turned down. “Jesse?” she ventured. “Are you there?” Jesse said nothing, trying hard to breathe noiselessly. When the door creaked open slowly, he pounced on his prey. She tried to slam the door again, but she wasn’t fast enough. He took her by the arm and marched her back into the bedroom.

“You are kidding me, Alyssa, aren’t you?” he asked incredulously when his eyes lit on the beer cans. He snatched up one of the open cans with one hand while holding her steady with the other. “You want to see how far you can push me? Well, you’re about to find out.”

“I don’t. I mean I wasn’t doing that!”

“Yes you were. I won’t put up with your games any longer, do you hear me?” He sat on the bed and stood her between his legs. His hands went to the button on her shorts.

“No!” she wailed.

“No feigning modesty now, missy. You were happy enough to parade your booty outside before for everyone to see.”

Tears of shame filled Alyssa’s eyes as the shorts were yanked to her knees. “I…” Before she knew it she had been bent over Jesse’s knee, and she was forced to hang onto his leg.

“Save it,” Jesse said, bringing his hand down hard on the cheeky target. “I tried to do things your way, I really did.”

The first smack had to have stung like the dickens, but he followed it with another. He was determined to get his message across this time. The skimpy thong she wore was no protection at all for Jesse’s hard slaps as he left several pink handprints on each thigh with one hand.

Alyssa was yelling within minutes of Jesse’s hand landing. “You stop that!” She kicked and fought and flung her hand back. “I didn’t do anything!” she wailed through ragged breaths.

“No, you didn’t unless you were being contrary. You didn’t clean up after yourself, you weren’t considerate at all. You took my beers and drank them when I specifically said no. You’re underage!”

Excerpt (A Spanking on the Beach)

© Touch My Heart, Paloma Beck, 2013

“Come and lay across my lap.”

She looked down the beach, clearly looking for other people, and I took the opportunity to tug her over my knee. I flipped her jogging skirt up and pulled her panties down before she had time to react and fight me. The breeze off the ocean raised small bumps on her skin.

“Twenty strokes, Aubrey. Count.” Without warning, a warm-up or a moment’s pause, I brought my bare hand down onto her ass. The sting on my palm sent power radiating up into my spine. The time I spent teaching her solidified the bonds we formed over the past months. I cherished these moments when she so willingly gave herself over to my care.

“One, sir.” Her small voice rose above the sounds of the waves breaking along the shore.

I waited for the next break to bring my hand down onto her other ass cheek, evening out the spanking and finding a rhythm.

“Two, sir.”

Aubrey was doing well. Her voice wasn’t strained yet. We’d come a long way. I’d warned her when we first began how our relationship would be, just how intense this would become. I told her how she’d come to crave the intimacy of the simplest touch from me, that it would become a reward of sorts – even the spanking. Her sigh after my third and fourth strokes told me she was sinking into the experience. Very good.

I continued rotating back and forth, making contact as each wave broke across the shore. I moved from left to right until her ass was bright red and calling for me. I held my ground though and refused to indulge. It was a reward that I was unwilling to give her during a punishment, even if it meant withholding my own desire, foregoing my own needs.

Her breathing grew labored at twenty strokes. I was halfway there. “Twenty, sir,” she panted. I immediately spanked again and she called out to me. “You said twenty, sir, you said only twenty.” Her voice was panicked and she struggled against my hold.

“Oh, little elf, twenty for each side. You couldn’t possibly expect me to stop now.” I soothed her skin while I answered her, rubbing my palm over each warm cheek and feeling the coarse texture of sand that had blanketed her bared skin. “But for these last twenty, you don’t have to count. We’re going fast and furious. I need to work out some of my tension from being denied my morning release.”



In this scene, William and Aubrey are in a secluded spot on a beach. Where are some crazy places you’ve done “it”?

Breeder by @CaraBristol – a tender story with hot sex


By Renee Rose

Cara Bristol’s sci-fi romance Breeder is tender story about Omra, female breeder kept in an abusive containment center, who finds love and freedom when she’s chosen by Commander Dak, a ruling Alpha of the planet Parseon. Dak intends to simply impregnate her and hand her off to his beta partner, but instead finds himself fascinated with her from the very start, discovering much of the doctrine about females on his planet to be untrue. His beta, Corren, however, is threatened by Omra, moreover, he believes himself worthy of being an alpha himself, and has long been planning against Dak.

The story has excellent pacing–I found it hard to put down.  The story tension leads you through, between the plot with Corren, the political tension Dak faces, and his own despair over violating protocol by harboring a loving relationship with Omra. The sex scenes live up to everything we’ve come to expect from Cara Bristol–hot, descriptive, luscious. Dak’s obsession with performing cunnilingus on Omra was so appreciated, particularly the scene featuring mutual oral sex and simultaneous spanking–mmm mmm.

For me, the book fell short in terms of the actual spanking and dominance/submission aspect.  There was so much potential here with the delicious master/slave scenario– a particular turn-on for me, but while it had all the perfect elements, they weren’t exploited. The two disciplinary spankings happened quickly–no time for fluttery build-up or anticipation. Dak was sweet to her from the very beginning, rarely using his dominant position to make her squirm. Of course, it made him an admirable hero, who I couldn’t help but fall in love with, but with the premise of the book, I expected more from this dynamic.

What it lacked in D/s, it made up for in excellent writing, world building, plot and sex. Another great book by Cara Bristol!

Feminism and Spanking- A Round Table Discussion





Welcome to this edition of our Round Table Discussion of Spanking Hot Topics!

Feminism and Spanking- I didn’t pose a question this week. I just wanted people to join in about this topic. As a spanko in a community of spanking author friends it’s a topic that comes up every once in a while. Can we still be feminists and want to be spanked? Can the spanker want to spank a woman and still call himself/herself a feminist?

Please feel free to leave your two cents with all of our bloggers who participated this time around.

British Billionaire Bachelor by Maggie Carpenter – Panties flying off HOT!


By Dinah McLeod

If you’re looking for a book that is HOT (and I’m talking panties flying off HOT!), a book that will keep you reading and wanting more long after the story has ended, can I recommend “British Billionaire Bachelor” by Maggie Carpenter?

When I started this book, I was running behind on my reading and about to go to bed. I thought to myself, I will just read a page or two to get started. Was I ever wrong! This book kept me reading until I couldn’t keep my eyes open—and when I woke up, I promptly went back! The writing is absolutely beautiful. Maggie Carpenter creates realistic, wonderful characters that you will root for every step of the way.

When “British Billionaire Bachelor” the beautiful, engaging Belle Somers recalls her sexual awakening, and her lover who have introduced her to the wonderful world of submission. It was a brief fling, but she clings to the tantalizing remembrances because she’s never found even one man to hold a candle to the lover living in her memories.

Until, that is, she meets handsome British Bachelor Simon Sinclair. From the get go, it’s clear that Simon is used to having his way, and that Belle will also have to yield to his rules. Simon needs a realtor to find him the perfect house in the States—little does she know that he’s asked around to get the name of a possible submissive! Simon is impressed with Belle, and hires her to work for him, sending her off from their first meeting with a secret provision. Inside he suggests that she might submit to his discipline, as he sees necessary to give it. Reading it brings back all her desire for a man who can dominate her and bring out the submission she longs to give—is it possible that this rich, worldly man could share the dark longing inside of her?

So begins “British Billionaire Bachelor”. There is plenty of spanking-action, enough to satisfy any spanko! Each sex scene is more incredible than the last, and described vividly for your reading pleasure! But this is not just a novel to get you hot and bothered—it also contains a wonderful, fast-paced plot that will keep you turning the page to find out what happens next! You won’t want to put it down, but that’s okay—Simon and Belle’s story is continued in a sequel that I am sure will be as sexy and exciting as the first! Get yours today!

How to Start Spanking in the Bedroom


adult gamesSpanking can be a great way to experiment in the bedroom, build a stronger relationship with your partner and even bring some of your favorite novels to life. But how do you go from reading about spanking to actually implementing it into your life?

There are a few things you should know before giving your partner the hand (or asking for it).

Spanking definitely has the potential to hurt, so it's important that you approach it safely and with someone you trust. This isn't something you want to dive into with some don't know very well. So before you get started, talk to your partner and let them know this is something that you would like to try. Many men have been taught that they should never hit a woman, so it may take some talking through to get them on board.

After you've gotten your partner on board, you will need to set up a safe word. A safe word will ensure that you are both safe and not getting pushed beyond your comfort level. Pick a word that is easy to remember and yell out so that it can be said when either of you are getting to a point where you can't take anymore.

Now the actual spanking…

It's important to not just dive in hand first when you're spanking someone or getting spanked. You need to get in the right mindset and become aroused, as arousal can actually turn the pain derived from spanking into pleasure. So be sure to include some foreplay into your playtime prior to getting your spank on.

When you're feeling good and ready, the spanker should gently place one hand on the spankee's gentials and the other on their butt cheek. As they wind up to lay down a spank, they will need to cup their hand slightly and spank upward versus a downward spank. They also have to be sure to aim directly for the butt cheeks. Aiming too low or high can put you in dangerous territory that can lead to the spankee getting hurt.

Once they have laid down a spank, they should use their one hand to gently rub the area and the other to stimulate the spankee's genitals. This will help the brain to start associating spanking with pleasure.

When the spanker is ready to go again, it is important that they shift their spank a little so that they aren't constantly striking the same area.

Beginner spankers should stick to using their hand because this will help them understand how much force they are inflicting as well as learn how to aim correctly. If you've gotten some solid hand time in, there are some toys you can graduate to.

Sex stores like Adam & Eve carry several different options for those of you feeling extra adventurous. You can try a paddle, crop or whip. A paddle is going to consist of a flat board with a handle. These are good for spreading the spank out across the buttocks. A whip is going to consist of a handle with strands of fabric on the end that will be used to lash your partner. This will be much more painful than the paddle. And then there's the crop. Crops are typically long rods with a piece of fabric attached on the end. This one will be equally as painful as the whip route and can be used to target very specific areas. In all cases, be sure to slowly build up to the pain. Do not immediately opt for full force as these will be very different from using your hand.
