Have you ever gone to a concert or watched a video or moved up close to the band at a dance — just close enough to watch his eyes and follow his hands, his strong fingers, as they caress the keys or masterfully strum the strings or grip the sticks and tap?
And have you wondered, then, with that delicious little private tickle in private places, what it would be like if those hands did something outrageous? Something like taking someone — maybe even you — in hand with those hands?
Girls do wonder, you know. At least, this girl does.
And Devlin O’Neill knows it.
But, then, that is hardly surprising. He knows so much about what girls need and want and dream of having, and he’s so very, very good at weaving it all into stories that entertain a girl’s mind and flood her heart with passion and make her smile that tiny smile just below half closed eyes while she breathes ever so lightly, lest the image of her own starring role in his stories should be disturbed before she is sufficiently warmed and pleasantly sated.
Perhaps that is why this prolific and talented spanking romance author opens “Treasure of the Forest Nymphs” with a musician; a guitar player who is a man capable of bending both strings for tickling senses and, also, girls for tending to. The ladies in his audience are drawn to Harlan the Guitar Player, and he draws on that knowledge and selects one of them in a random drawing for special attention at the close of each evening’s onstage performance.
Readers get to follow the couple off stage and down the hall to a private room where Harlan of guitar fame employs his second talent and sends ladies on their way out the back door humming the bits he has played and rubbing the bits he has played upon throughout the evening.
Wondering how the forest nymphs fit in to this scenario? Well, it’s magical, you see, the way the story all comes together beyond the confines of a real world bar where the most sought-after entertainer in town is in residence each evening.
Funny how men who like to spank and women who like to be spanked have a way of crossing those barriers between “real” and “just might happen” and getting down to business, isn’t it? And in O’Neill’s newest Neverwasnian romance, it’s even funnier how spritely nymphs with similar predilections mesh perfectly into the story line.
It all happens when a Very Pretty Someone spots something — well, actually, a couple of somethings — unusual in Harlan the Guitar Player and decides he is just the person she needs to help her claim the treasure she really, really has to have. Somewhere along the way, as the duo move from the familiar and into the mystical, Very Pretty Someone and Harlan the Guitar Player discover not only the treasure they went searching for with their senses, but also the one they’ve secretly been searching for with their hearts.
It’s a magical fantasy. Of course.
It’s a spanking story. Of course.
It’s a romantic tale. Of course.
It’s another of O’Neill’s finest. Of course.
Otherwise, I wouldn’t be recommending it, because I am drawn to the finer things in life and think you should be, as well.
Nominations are now open for the Best Spanking Romance of 2016. Nominations close Jan. 16th.
Blurb: When she is left all but alone to defend her family’s castle against an army of battle-hardened Viking raiders, nineteen-year-old Princess Aurelie of Donrose fights valiantly but is soon overcome. After her capture by the tall, handsome leader of the northmen, Prince Anders, she is carried away along with the rest of the spoils of conquest.
Anders makes it clear to the princess that she is now his property, to do with as he likes, and he takes pleasure in stripping her bare and putting her on display. When she defies her new master, Aurelie quickly discovers that Anders will not hesitate to spank her soundly, but to her shame the painful, humiliating punishment leaves her deeply aroused.
Bound and helpless yet burning with desire, the princess finds herself longing for the bold, dominant warrior to take her hard and thoroughly, and when she surrenders to his mastery of her body the pleasure is more intense than she would have ever thought possible. Aurelie’s submission to Anders grows more complete with each passing day, but when her brothers arrive with an army to seek vengeance against their old enemy she must make a fateful choice. Will she remain loyal to her family and her people, or come to the aid of her Viking prince?
Publisher’s Note: The Viking’s Conquest includes spankings, sexual scenes and sexual humiliation, and more. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.
Intrigued by the premise and excerpts, I recently picked up a copy of Felicity Brandon’s latest release, The Viking’s Conquest.
Just look at that cover. Fan. Me.
I’m a fairly slow reader, and it usually takes me a few weeks to finish a full-length novel. I finished this one in record time, because it was absolutely riveting. When I read a romance, I have three main criteria: excellent writing, a well-developed plot, and hot as hell sex scenes. Ms. Brandon hit every one of those points expertly.
I love books that explore various aspects of the power exchange. On the grand “spectrum” of the power exchange, I would put this book at the highest end of the spectrum, veering toward master/slave with hardcore BDSM elements. But make no mistake –The Viking’s Conquest is not just about sex and spanking. At the core, The Viking’s Conquest is a well-written historical romance, complete with well-rounded characters, and a fast-paced, engaging plot line. The emotional pull was magnetic.
The book begins with Aurelie, princess of Donrose, defying tradition and entering into battle, an attempt to defend her kingdom against a nearly hopeless invasion from the North. She is fearless, and fights well until she is captured and taken prisoner. Immediately, the plot advances as she is taken to the Prince, who has saved her life in favor of choosing her to be his captive.
Handsome Prince Anders takes her to his chambers and has her wounds treated; he is surprisingly gentle with the woman who has become little more than his property. However, he insists on absolute obedience from the very first encounter.
“My lady of Donrose, although you are my prisoner, I am not a savage. I would like to treat you well and with respect, but – let me be clear – if you choose to disobey me, I will not be kind or respectful. You will be punished,” his eyes swell with emotion as he speaks slowly and clearly to me. “Do you understand me?”
He insists she refer to him properly and address him as Prince in his native tongue. She balks, unable to humble herself and refer to her enemy in such a way, and thus earns her first punishment. But when he spanks her, she finds, to her shock and dismay, she cannot help but be drawn to his authority, her sexuality immediately awakened at his discipline. The captivating sessions with the Prince held me spellbound, the lead up and flawless execution of the power exchange absolutely compelling.
From the onset, Aurelie is stripped of her pride, and she fears she will be taken against her will. The Prince makes it very clear he will never violate her in this way; however, he insists he has other means of ensuring her obedience…and does he ever. Anders insists on her public humiliation, but does so in such a way that slowly, her desire for him is stoked, and by the time they are once again alone, she is craving his sexual attention.
Typically, I’m not one that enjoys humiliation scenes, and humiliation is a heavy focus in Anders’ training methods. However, what I appreciated about these scenes was that they were so well written, that I understood not only the purpose, but ultimately the sexual appeal. I found myself as a reader forgiving Anders’ methods, because of Aurelie’s response: she is left aching for the Prince, aroused by the objectification, and near begging him for release.
“With my head, neck and chest forced up, my legs still spread apart and my ass punished over and over again, that strange feeling is beginning to come over me again. I begin to feel little more than a thing – his thing – a thing to be used, fingered and punished as and when he chooses. A thing with no will of its own – existing only to serve his desires. This acknowledgment of my objectification fills my mind, sending me into some sort of dream-like reality.”
When he is finished with her, she is ratcheted up to a near-desperate desire for him, and his lovemaking in response is tender and attentive, though utterly dominant.
These are not merely gratuitous sex, punishment, and humiliation scenes. Every one of these exquisitely-executed scenes advances the central plot. Aurelie is sexually aroused and hopelessly attracted to her sadistic captor, but his methods ignite her own deep-seated masochistic desires. When she finally succumbs to his will, she is rewarded with his devotion, and the two find their needs met in one another. No longer is she merely his plaything, but instead, a woman he now claims above all others, the crux of their relationship summed up in Anders’ proclamation: “You are mine after all – mine to use, mine to punish, and mine to adore.”
She realizes she is now a changed woman, stripped of her pride and brought to the most basic needs, yearning for his dominance and power.
“Your punishment, though harsh, cleansed me – and brought us together again…”
And later she realizes, “For every nuance of his manner which frustrates me, there is a gracious and giving master, dedicated to my needs and desires.”
But what will become of them when Donrose comes to rescue Aurelie from captivity? Can Aurelie return to life without her captor?
Absolutely riveting from page one, The Viking’s Conquest explores the appeal of the power exchange in the most expertly written prose, a flawlessly executed historical romance. Highly recommended.

Review by Rachel de Vine
I am a big fan of Ms Tilton’s writing, and this book did not disappoint. Set in the Sixties in New York, Zoe Brown is a shy and innocent country girl who moves to the city to stay with her ‘Tantie’ Anne-Marie, expecting to learn about sophisticated city ways. Led by Anne-Marie, Zoe learns ways far beyond her expectation.
She is introduced to Victor, a businessman, who wishes to take young Zoe in hand, and introduce her to a submissive lifestyle. He shows the shy young woman the ecstasy of being controlled and spanked by him, and is so taken with her that he delays his decision to leave the city and live in the countryside.
The erotic scenes are well up to the standard we have come to expect from this author – in other words, extremely HOT! The page fairly sizzles at times. It does not have a complicated plot, but is a very enjoyable story of a young woman’s sexual awakening and her introduction to a BDSM lifestyle, and is hard to put down once started. Highly recommended.
Review by Jane Henry
When hardened gunslinger Tucker Prescott is tasked with bringing law and order back to a town overrun by a gang of criminals, he quickly realizes that his biggest challenge won’t be the villainous McGill brothers. The one who will truly put him to the test is Dolly Baker, the beautiful, feisty twenty-two-year-old daughter of the man who hired him.
From the moment she barges into his cabin uninvited, Tucker knows Dolly is going to be trouble, and it isn’t long before she tests his patience one time too many and earns herself a sound spanking. The embarrassing chastisement gets her attention, but it will take quite a bit more than a few smacks on the bottom to teach her obedience, and the more he sees of Dolly, the more Tucker is forced to admit that he would love to be the man to properly tame her.
Tucker didn’t come to Spring Junction to keep a woman in line, however, he came to deal with the McGill brothers and their gang. He has a plan to do just that, but it will depend on his quick wits as much as his quick draw, and despite his best efforts Tucker can’t get Dolly off his mind. Can he bring the outlaws to justice and make her his bride before she drives him to distraction?
Tucker’s Justice is a sweet, sexy story with plenty of action, suspense, and a powerful sub-plot that draws the reader in.
Tucker Prescott is a man on a mission: to restore justice and peace to the little town of Spring Junction. He will not be swayed or distracted, and from the get-go he proves himself a no-nonsense, law-enforcing cowboy. Little does he know that the feisty, headstrong, but lovely Dolly Baker may prove to be a match for his highhanded ways.
When they first meet, Dolly is sassy and Tucker is not amused.
“You don’t know anything,” she snapped, staring at him, challenge in her bright blue eyes. “I’m tougher than I look!”
“How tough are you gonna feel when you’re over my knee getting’ a good spankin’? That’d be your first taste of Tucker’s Justice. You wanna give it a try?”
Dolly is outwardly affronted, but inwardly drawn to the stern cowboy, and as the story plays out, the attraction to one another grows.
The story revolves around the McGill brothers, and how they hold the town of Spring Junction hostage with their lawlessness and cruelty. Tucker will have none of it, and hatches an elaborate, (and fairly entertaining!) plan to bring down the gang. The town rallies in his favor, eager to be rid of the men who bring chaos and fear.
As his plan unfolds, however, there is one major distraction: Dolly. She will not sit idly by while danger threatens her town; nor will she hide her attraction to Tucker. Though he is attracted to her himself, he doesn’t put up with her sass for one minute – something she rather likes.
“Go back to the house. I swear if you stand in front of me one more minute, I’ll be throwin’ you on that heap of hay and rippin’ that dress off you.”
“In that case, I’m not moving from this spot,”she twinkled.
“Do I need to remind you what happens when you don’t do as you’re told?”
“It’ll be worth it,”she whispered, amazed how he’d suddenly sounded like a gentleman again. How could he be both rough and refined? Her tummy flipped. She absolutely loved it.
“Not if I use a hard stick, it won’t.”
“I don’t see any hard sticks in here,”she said airily, enjoying her sassy game.
“You might be right, but there’s always my gun belt. I’ll take out my pistol and bullets, fold it in half, and-”
“NO!”she exclaimed, her demeanor quickly changing. “You wouldn’t spank me with a belt, would you?”
“You don’t wanna test me,”he said sternly, then looking into her blue eyes, his face softened. “Maybe not this time, but if I think you deserved it, you bet I’d whip your ass with my belt…”
And he would. Even as the innocent bystander, I had no doubt he would!
The majority of this story focuses on Tucker’s methods of bringing down the lawless gang, while he falls hopelessly in love with Dolly. The story was funny, sweet, and sexy. If you like a real story with your spanking, an unabashed dominant hero and headstrong heroine, this one is for you!

Her Drill Sergeant Dom is intense with many twists and turns. Every time I thought I knew who the bad guy was, it twisted and changed. What a fast-paced suspense thriller!

I highly recommend this book!
