A Serious Spanking #DungeonCrawl

Welcome to Dungeon Crawl!  Today's excerpt is from The Bossman.
On Sale Now!


He cupped her chin and lifted it. “You are getting a serious spanking, little girl.”

She flushed even more. “Yes, sir,” she mumbled, wishing he’d let go of her chin so she could hide her embarrassment. He held her eye long enough to make it clear her humiliation was registered and perhaps even owed.

“Pull down your pants and bend over the bed,” he ordered.

She unbuttoned her pants and pulled them down to mid-thigh. He hadn’t specified her panties, so she left them on, bending over with the lacy lingerie still intact. She should have known better because in a moment it was yanked up into her cleft and the hard wood of the paddle cracked down on her bared cheeks. She gasped at the sensation. He’d been right--wood was completely unforgiving. Not at all like the surface sting of his belt. This was a deeper pain, a shock of force that connected with her sit bones and lifted her to her toes.

He smacked her again and again, not giving her time to catch her breath or recover before the next swat landed. The long plank of wood was able to hit both cheeks at the same time, seeming to double the pain. She jerked and jumped, but his hold of her panties prevented her from listing to the side. After ten solid whacks, he paused, leaving her whimpering softly into the blankets, her legs trembling too much to hold her.

He yanked her panties down and leaned down, speaking low in her ear. “The next time I tell you to take your pants down, you pull down your panties, too, or you’ll be wearing them up round your ears for the rest of the day, capisce?”

“Yes, sir,” she whispered.

It was funny when he turned tough, more of the Sicilian came out. Her sex pulsed in response to his gruff admonishments.

“You don’t ever,” he began spanking again, “ever,” another whack, “threaten a member of the Family with a gun.”

She hadn’t exactly threatened Pauly, but she wasn’t going to argue. She understood what he meant.

He continued paddling and lecturing. “And Never. Ever. Make choices that endanger both of our lives.”

That gave her a sharp pang of guilt. She hadn’t thought about how she’d endangered his life as well.

Capisce?”

Capito!” she gasped.

She heard the rustle of his movements behind her, but didn’t dare move from her prostrated position to see what he was doing. When she heard the squirt of a bottle and felt a cold moisture trickle down her crack, it became clear. The cold metal of the stainless steel butt plug she’d purchased pressed against her back hole.

The Bossman

Amazon top 100 - BDSM


Sophie Palazzo steered clear of the mafia after her father's involvement ended with his murder. Fifteen years later, Joey La Torre, the Don's brother himself, shows up unannounced at her massage studio and wheedles his way into a date. She has no interest in aggressive, macho men like Joey, or so she tries to tell herself, but her body just doesn't get the message. When Joey takes her in hand with a firm bare-bottomed spanking, she ought to be furious, instead, she's aroused. As she explores her physical desires to be dominated, she tries to keep Joey at arm's length emotionally.

Joey knows he wants Sophie for keeps from the moment he walks into her life. She is hot, classy and full of fire, even though submission turns her on. But his involvement in the mafia is a hard limit for her, bringing to conflict his own dedication to the Family, the code of silence and his relationship with his older brother. Can he reconcile his duty to the organization and his growing need for Sophie to remain in his life permanently?

You were naughty today - #SatSpanks

My snippet today comes from my upcoming Regency, tentatively titled Midnight at the Westerfield's (I don't know why I even both sharing tentative titles, when it always gets changed, but this way you can be a part of my process. )

“I think, Sir, you enjoy spanking me,” she said, watching him with her intelligent gaze. 
It came as a surprise that he felt no shame at her accusation, though he had spent most of his life fearing his curiosity about chastising women. Somehow, with Eliza, it did not feel wrong. Her arousal at his punishments removed his guilt, just as her compliance now proved a willingness. 
“I might, Eliza,” he said with a small smile. “So you had better learn to obey your husband, else you will spend a great deal of time over my lap.” 
He saw heat in her eyes and cautioned, “Just because I enjoy it, does not mean you will. You were naughty today, Eliza, and I intend to make you sorry.”



Blurb:

Meet me at the Westerfield Estate gatehouse at midnight during their Ides of March ball.  Bring the twenty-five thousand in notes to exchange for the plans.

Spymaster John Andrews does not know the identity of either of the traitors who plan to meet at the Westerfield’s, but he is determined to catch them both at their treasonous game. Posing as Lord Andrew Auburn, he joins the Westerfield weekend fete, never expecting to fall for his main suspect, the lovely wallflower Miss Eliza Hunt. When he finds the secret government documents hidden in her trunk, he takes the lady to task, applying a riding crop to her bare bottom. Yet it appears Eliza may be innocent, in which case, he can bid farewell to his career for getting fresh with the daughter of the wealthy and well-connected Hunt family.
Eliza Hunt knows Lord Auburn is not the man he purports to be, but he is the first man to see beyond the ugly birthmark on her face treat her with passion. As he draws her out of her shell and demands she let go of her doubts of self-worth, he soon becomes the only man she wants, even when it becomes clear he has a strong penchant for spanking!
Auburn cannot wait to resolve his case and claim Eliza as his own, but he fears his darker desires may mean he is not the sort of man worth having as a husband. Can her trust allow him to release the demons from his past?

How Important is After Care? What does it mean to you?

Today is another Spanking Round Table Discussion, sponsored by Spanking Romance Reviews.  

The topic today is Aftercare.

I have a whomping headache, so I'm hoping I can put my thoughts together in a way that makes sense.  

I wrote about aftercare a bit in my post "Of two minds about a spanking". I had experienced what you might call "sub drop" after a few spankings that had a more disciplinary feel to them.  The first time, I thought it was because we did not have sex afterward, but then it happened again even when we had.  My friend Emily Tilton suggested more after care and I think she was absolutely right. 

Upon reflection, it seemed like part of the problem was that my husband and I don't really practice DD, so suddenly dabbling in discipline without the structure in place to deal with the emotional needs that may be more present left me adrift.  Usually the mind-melting orgasm from the post-spanking sex is the only kind of aftercare I require.

Of course, there's a reason the term "sub-drop" exists, coming from the BDSM culture, so it may not be related to discipline, but rather is about the vulnerability resulting from submitting to pain and/or humiliation at the hands of your partner, or even just a chemical drop from endorphin release, etc.

Spanking of any kind forms a bond and aftercare can solidify it--it's the affirmation of love, tenderness after the infliction of pain and assertion of dominance. It helps us feel safe. Without it, you can feel like an egg without a shell.

I think emotional context of a spanking is important for understanding what kind of aftercare might be necessary. Was it disciplinary? Was it particularly humiliating? Did it stretch the recipient's boundaries in some way?  If so, the after care has to be there to meet any emotional reaction that might emerge.

Of course, if the spanking was for foreplay, the aftercare is rather obvious. :)  I think in our case, things get blurred-- it's pretend discipline, or it's about a real annoyance but it's supposed to be foreplay--and then my emotions get tangled and I will need to be held and reassured or at least teased back into lightness. 

How about you?  Are there different sorts of aftercare you require?  Have you had an aftercare fail like me?  Please leave your comments below, and read all the Round Table Participants' thoughts on the topic!

Sometimes she just needs a spanking... #SatSpanks mafia spanking story

Buy today on Amazon
Today's excerpt is from The Bossman, my mafia spanking story. It hit the top 100 for BDSM on Amazon last week (only for a day, but I'm still counting it).  It was originally categorized in romance, where I didn't stand a chance of hitting top 100, but my publisher switched it over so I could vainly add the little feather to my cap. :)

In the following excerpt, Sophie has just behaved rudely at a Family BBQ (yes, Family with a capital "F"). She had a hard time seeing her father's mafia clan, blaming them for his death. Joey makes a judgement call and decides to spank her, but they are such a new couple, he is not certain how she'll take it...

************
He grabbed her around the waist and hauled her off her feet, not surprised when she thrashed and kicked. He carried her into the bedroom, stood her on her feet, and reached down to unbutton her jeans. Her breathing was heavy but she didn’t move to stop him. Maybe it was just because he was looking for it, but he thought he sensed complicity, like she wanted to be forced, to have her will taken away from her this way. He pulled down the jeans and panties and still received no protest. He pushed her torso down on the bed. She turned her head to the side with an angry expression but she lay perfectly still for him.  
Spanking with his hand did not seem to match the intensity of her emotions. It was not that he thought she deserved the belt. Hell, he hadn’t planned on punishing her at all. It was that she seemed to need it. As he wrapped the buckle end of the leather belt around his fist, he prayed he wasn’t making a huge mistake.
