The Disciplinarian’s Daughter by Leigh Court

Genre: Historical Victorian England, Lessons in how a woman can pleasure herself.

Only virgins need apply…

20-year-old Amelia Ashworth is desperate to get away from her miserable home life and the cold, domineering aunt and uncle who took her in after her parents died. But to do that, Amelia needs a job. And as a proper lady, she has no work experience. So when she reads an ad to take part in a ‘scientific study of virgins,’ the incredible five thousand pound fee it offers seems like the answer to her prayers…

Trevor Markham knows the scandalous scientific study he’s planned will outrage society, but he firmly believes it will ultimately benefit Victorian women. He just never expected the virgin who responded to his ad to be such a beautiful temptation. As he struggles to hold the line between his professional conduct and his growing personal feelings, nothing can prepare him for the shocking discovery of the true identity of his perfect virgin…

Reader Alert!

Little did innocent Amelia Ashworth realize when she responded to an ad for a ‘scientific study of virgins’ that the so-called study would entail experimenting with erotic toys and techniques to discover how a woman could pleasure herself in sexually-repressed Victorian England. Or how much she’d enjoy her lessons at the hands of Dr. Trevor Markham!

To My Readers:

This story is for all the wonderful Red Sage readers who wrote or e-mailed me after reading The Disciplinarian in Secrets, Volume 15, demanding more of Jared and Clarissa’s story. I hope you enjoy their daughter Amelia’s tale!

About the Author:

She’s been writing since age eleven, starting with wild adventure stories for her elementary school newsletter, and grew up to be a television news journalist whose assignments took her on real life adventures.

Labyrinth by Alice Gaines

Genre: Contemporary, Light Bondage, Spanking

Kate Walker has been fascinated with reclusive billionaire Deimos Rowland since her early twenties. When rumors surface of his exotic sexual tastes, she becomes even more intrigued. Finally, a drunken former lover of Rowland’s gives Kate the clue to where she can find the man she’s lusted after from a distance for years.

Deimos Rowland hasn’t trusted a woman since the ugly and public break-up of his marriage at a young age. He hasn’t lost his taste for sex, though. In fact, it’s grown more exotic with the passing years. He’s set a series of sexual challenges for any woman who wants to be his lover. Little does he realize that the woman who passes them all will still win his heart.

Kate discovers that the man she’s always thought of as hurt and vulnerable has instead become distant to the point of hardness. This is not the man she wanted to give her heart to. Deimos has discovered that he needs love to exist, after all. Can he allow Kate to melt the ice and make him fully human again?

Reader Alert!

Reclusive billionaire, Deimos Rowland not only owns a Greek island. He’s created a sexual labyrinth inside it, with each chamber a bit more exotic sexually than the last. Kate Walker discovers a world where nothing is forbidden — not spanking nor voyeurism nor being tied up.

To My Readers:

Talk to your reader telling them why your so excited about this story, why it’s wonder, the characters, why you had to bring then this story.

I only write things that turn me on personally. Labyrinth reflects my fantasies of a place so removed from the everyday world that anything is possible if I can imagine it. Writing the story has been a fascinating journey for me. I hope it is for you, too.

About the Author:

Alice Gaines loves the fantastic and the ultra-sensual. Writing gives her the opportunity to combine these two pleasures. Besides spinning tales in her head, Alice’s passions include vegetable gardening, the San Francisco 49ers, and America’s Test Kitchen.

Alice has a Ph.D. in psychology from the University of California at Berkeley and lives in Oakland, California with her two pet corn snakes, Casper and Sheikh Yerbouti.

 

Sex, Lies and Contracts by Jennifer Probst 

Genre: Erotic Contemporary, Spanking

Julianna Elizabeth Waters promise her dying father to save the family estate at all costs, even if it means marrying for money, and not love. After years of taking care of her sick parents, she’s become afraid to push past the walls of her Newport mansion and live.

Jack Woodward has it all – wealth, power, and prestige, but discovers a contract stating he must marry within three months or his legacy will go to his cousin, a man he loathes. He leaves England and disguises himself a gardener, intent on finding a woman who loves him for himself, and not his money and title.

When he spots Julianna on the cliffs, he vows to claim her at any cost, but she is intent on marrying a wealthy husband. He may be disgusted with her values, but he craves to initiate the spinster into the dark world of pleasure. They strike a bargain: she will belong to him every night and do anything he commands. Lust turns to love as the nights unfold, and suddenly the terms change.

But when his cousin comes to town, disguising himself as the perfect husband with a plan to steal Jack’s legacy, Jack forces her to choose: love or money. A wrong choice throws a startling chain of events in action. Can love and truth triumph or will it be too late?

Reader Alert!

Describe sexual content in two to three sentences. Ex: Abby didn’t know being on the run could be so glorious, with two men who know how to use ropes and spank so well!! Caution! When you read about Abby’s adventures you will need cool down and not over heat!

Julianna Elizabeth Waters is an old fashioned spinster desperate to break out of her sexual constraints. When her sexy gardener offers her a naughty bargain to belong to him, body and soul, she does things she always imagined of. Being dominated, controlled and spanked have never felt so good…

To My Readers:

When I visited Newport, Rhode Island and strolled the famous Cliff Walk, I looked at the gorgeous mansions high above the ocean and wondered what it would feel like to live there. I suddenly had a flash of my heroine, standing in the pouring rain, looking to escape her own emotional and physical prison. Later on, when I took a sunset sail, my hero appeared beside me: a true sailor who loved the water; alone; searching for his soul-mate. My story was suddenly born.

Julianna and Jack have much to teach each other about trust, letting go of control, and connecting on a deep physical level. I hope you enjoy reading about their journey as much as I enjoyed writing about them.

About the Author:

I’ve always wanted to be a writer, and I knew my calling was romance from the time I was thirteen years old. My life took on an edge of excitement I never experienced before, and as I grew older, I learned valuable lessons from those feisty heroines and alpha male heroes. I live in upstate New York, in the beautiful Hudson Valley. I have a deep love for the mountains, chocolate, Frank Sinatra, and a good book. I loved writing Masquerade, and look forward to many more stories with Red Sage Publishing. I share my life with my wonderful husband and our two canine children, Bella and Lester. They’ve all suffered through late nights with me as I work. I look forward to hearing from all of my readers, so please check out my website, jenniferprobst.com.

 

Forbidden Fruit by Anne Rainey 

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Veterinarian assistant, Ava Sweet has lusted after bad boy Luke McGiffin since high school and she’s tired of him treating her like a kid sister. It’s time to show the hunky roofer her feminine side. The plan: let Jen, her best friend, give her a makeover, and then tempt Luke right out of his sexy jeans. But can Ava handle a man with such strong appetites or is she in over her head?

To My Reader:

It’s a pleasure for me to create less than perfect heroines that are easy to relate to and I especially had fun with Ava Sweet. She’s one tough lady, but with a soft center. She deserved a hunky bad boy to show her just how beautiful she is. I dearly hope you enjoy Ava’s transformation from shy tomboy to sexy siren!

About the Author:

I’m a 39-year-old mother of two and happily married to the man of my dreams. I live in a small town way out in the middle of nowhere-ville. I have a houseful of animals, which include three Boxers, two cats, and our newest addition, Max, a kitten we found on the side of the road. Oh, and a fish tank. When I’m not feeding, walking, cleaning, and petting the animals, I’m writing spicy romance stories under the pen name Anne Rainey. As it happens, Anne is a gorgeous blonde with wonderful curves and a money tree in the backyard. I never want for anything and I always love everyone. Of course, I wasn’t always this way. It all started on one Rainey day, as I was sitting on my comfy couch, reading a romance novel and sipping a hot chocolate. I realized the book I was reading seemed to lack a certain “vavavoom!” Thus, the talented, beautiful (and rich) Anne Rainey was born. Clearly, Anne is a mere figment, a ghostly figure that pops in and out of my head like a drive-by author. Nevertheless, I do so love it when she’s visiting, because her imagination really is wickedly delicious! She’ll bring you fantasies and erotic delights that will have you grabbing the ice water! Interests: Writing, reading, hiking, swimming, spending time with my family, shopping, and chocolate. (Yes, chocolate is an interest!)

Adult Excerpt from One Night in Paris by Lucy Felthouse

Hi everyone,

For my third and final post, I’m sharing an adult excerpt from my M/F erotic romance novella, City Nights: One Night in Paris. Enjoy!

*****

One Night in Paris“Now shut up and kiss me.”

“With pleasure, ma’am.” Shifting so their bodies were millimetres apart, he placed his hand on her hip, tugged her closer and looked into her eyes. What he saw there galvanised him; lust, desire, affection. He may have pretty much forgotten how this stuff worked, but the woman in front of him genuinely wanted him. The throbbing from his crotch area reminded him the sentiment was more than mutual.

Hoping his expression displayed the same feelings, he smiled, then leaned over and pressed his lips to hers. Reminding himself they’d done this part before, albeit in the middle of the street, he let his worries go. Concentrating purely on her lips against his, her soft curves, the increased pace of her breathing and heartbeat, the cute little sounds she was making, he allowed himself to be absorbed in the moment.

After a few seconds, their kiss inevitably deepened, grew more passionate. Mouths pressed harder against each other, teeth occasionally clashing, tongues battling. She tasted of peppermint mouthwash, as, of course, did he. As he explored her mouth further, Jacob let the hand that wasn’t trapped beneath him wander. Up to her face; cupping it, stroking his thumb against her soft skin. Then he gently trailed it down her neck, her shoulder, her arm and finally onto her hip, where it rested for a few seconds before sneaking round and grabbing her nearest buttock. Pulling her closer still, so their bodies were pressed together from head to toe, he resisted the temptation to grind his now-fully-erect cock against her.

Turned out he didn’t need to, anyway. Their new position meant it was impossible for her not to notice and she let out a noise somewhere between a growl and a purr, and slipped her free hand between their bodies. Pressing it to his length, she stroked the bulge through his clothes, causing him to make a growling sound of his own.

Their kissing ramped up yet another notch as passion overwhelmed them, their jaws working faster, tongues duelling frantically and hasty breaths being sucked in. He squeezed and groped her backside as she almost-masturbated him. Soon, Jacob felt he was in danger of coming in his boxers so he snatched his hand away from her luscious arse and grabbed her wrist.

Breaking their kiss, he moved away enough so her face came back into focus, and said, “Shall we continue this with less clothes on?”

“Sounds like a good plan.”

They rolled away from each other and began removing their own clothing, in some unspoken yet mutually understood agreement that it’d be quicker. With less garments to contend with, Jacob finished first and turned back to watch as Annabelle’s bra, then a tiny thong were flung to the thick carpet. She looked up and caught his gaze, grinned wolfishly.

“Wanna get the protection?” she asked.

Shaking his head, Jacob replied, “Not just yet. Any objection to me going down on you?” He suspected his hormones were driving his sudden confidence, but he didn’t mind. Whatever worked.

Annabelle looked at him incredulously. “What kind of question is that?”

Now it was Jacob’s turn to be confused. “Uh, a genuine one I asked because I wanted to know the answer.”

“Um, okay. I have no objection whatsoever, and have never met a woman that would ever have an objection to that particular sex act.” Letting out a sound something like phrrt, she shuffled to the middle of the bed and lay down, her head on the pillows. “Christ knows what kind of women you’ve been hanging around with, lover boy, but they’re not in the majority, I can tell you that.”

Shrugging, he moved on the mattress so he was at Annabelle’s feet. Before pushing her legs open and feasting on what was between them, he paused for a moment to look at her naked form. She definitely had curves in all the right places; breasts that were just the right size for a handful, hips he could barely wait to grab as he pounded into her and a gently rounded tummy in proportion with the rest of her figure. She truly was beautiful, and although he didn’t say the words out loud, the way his cock strained up towards his belly button certainly proved the adage actions speak louder than words.

“What?” Annabelle said, a little shyly, as he continued to stare.

Flicking his gaze up to hers, he replied. “Just admiring you, that’s all. I’m not just saying this because I’m about to get some, but you’re absolutely gorgeous. Both clothed and naked.”

Adult Excerpt from Sweet Spot by Lucy Felthouse

Hi everyone,

Me again :D. This time I’m sharing an adult excerpt from Sweet Spot, my F/F sports romance, which is an All Romance eBooks bestseller! It’s book two in the Raw Talent series.

*****

Sweet SpotI gave over everything to what I was doing—full concentration, full effort on making the beautiful woman above me come all over my face. I couldn’t get enough of her—her heat, her indescribably gorgeous taste, the way she moaned and bucked her hips, forcing her cunt harder onto me, all of it. Lapping at her juices, I hummed with pleasure as the flavor coated my tongue, exploded over my taste buds. Wanting more, so much more, I curled my tongue up at its edges and pushed it deep inside her, as far as it would go. I wiggled it, thrust it, tickled at her inner walls until I had to pull away to breathe.

Drawing in a deep breath, I immediately continued, closing my lips around her distended bud and sucking it, lightly at first, then harder and harder until I suspected that the sensation for Nadia was hovering somewhere between extreme pleasure and extreme pain. Careful to ensure I stayed on the right side of that delicate balance, I released some of the pressure, ever so slightly, and focused on bringing her to orgasm as quickly and as beautifully as possible. I sucked, licked, nibbled and laved at her bud and the surrounding area, taking immense enjoyment from the sounds she made, the way she jerked her hips, the free-flowing liquid that trickled from her core. The only thing that could have made the experience better was her climax, and it was imminent.

Shifting one of my hands from where it still held her swollen outer lip, I slipped my first two fingers into her cunt. I moaned against her clit, the vibrations causing her to do the same, the sound audible even over the din from the shower. God, she was hot. Literally. The soft, wet heat of her clenching around my fingers was amazing. With a movement of my wrist, I got my hand into a position where I could finger fuck her, pressing up against her G-spot with each thrust.

It worked. As my mouth continued to work on her clit, my digits played inside her, stretching, curving, stimulating. Her G-spot swelled and, judging by the way she gasped and growled every time I bumped against it, grew more sensitive. Changing tactics, I stopped screwing her and started stroking the spongy bundle of flesh, pressing and rubbing it as I sucked her clit into my mouth once more.

Seconds later my attentions had the desired effect and she came undone. Her body stiffened and she fell utterly silent for a beat. Then she climaxed, hard. Her cunt contracted so forcefully it pushed my fingers almost out of her, followed by a squirt of ejaculate that covered my hand and arm. Just when I’d thought she couldn’t be any more amazing, she’d gone and squirted. Wow.

Backing away, still on my knees, I looked up, watching as she rode out her orgasm. Mercifully, despite her body’s powerful reaction, she wasn’t too loud. Either that or she too was aware that even though there weren’t many people about, there was still a chance someone would hear us.

Her back bowed, eyes rolled back in her head, chest heaved, swollen lips parted. There were spots of high color on her cheeks. Her hands clawed, scrabbling at the wall behind her. Her legs looked as though they were working hard to keep her upright. I didn’t think I’d ever seen anything so beautiful in my life.

Getting To Know D.J. Davis a Little Better. (Rated: 18+)

WhileYouWereAway.final.fiona

We asked D.J a few personal questions to satisfy your curiosity. Enjoy!

 

1. Favorite Author

I have so many that it’s hard to choose just one.  Always been a fan of Piers Anthony (I grew up on his Xanth novels), Terry Pratchett, Terry Brooks, Robert Jordan (rip) since I was a child staring in wide-eyed wonder at the fantastic stories on the page.  My newest favorites are Linnea Sinclair for her sci-fi works, Faith Hunter, David B. Coe, Misty Massey, and AJ Hartley.

2. Favorite Book

Another tough one.  I love so many books, but especially love fantasy and science fiction (especially space opera!) in many different sub-genres.  I guess the one that was most formative, as far as my desire to become a writer, was The Elfstones of Shannara.  Epic, triumphant, and bittersweet.  The first large novel I read as a child and after that, I couldn’t get enough.

3. Sweet or Salty

Both!  Salty caramel is one of my absolute favorites and I’ve even put a tiny amount of chipotle powder in my homemade caramel from time to time to give a bit of a smoky kick to my ice cream.  I know it sounds strange, but it’s amazing!  It’s like those desserts with bacon.  You wouldn’t think they’d work but they do.

4. Dream Vacation

Ireland, Ireland, Ireland.  Did I mention Ireland? ;)

5. Music or Silence

Both.  I love listening to music and singing, but I also enjoy my quiet times, especially if it’s with a good book.

7. Vanilla or Kink

Well, I definitely have a wild side behind closed doors. ;)  And many of my sex scenes are rigorously tested for accuracy.  You’re welcome.

8. Morning Bird or Night Owl

Night owl.  Or, at least I used to be.  Having to get up early to get the little one off to school sort of puts a crimp in that one anymore.

9. Half Full or Half Empty

Depends upon whether I’ve drank half of it or it was only filled halfway up.  And if it was, keep pouring; don’t be skimpy! ;)

10. Boxers, Briefs or Bare

Depends on the day and the weather. ;)  Though I’m more of a string bikini briefs sorta person.

 

Description:

The story jumps into the thick of things immediately and doesn’t let up until the satisfying climax.  It blends the darkness of a dystopian setting with a touch of the epic scope of sci-fi space opera and wraps it all up in the steamy scenes and happy ending of romance.  A nicely blended cocktail of love amidst a futuristic action-packed adventure.  I strive to write strong, believable characters that are well done and relatable, coupled with a solid setting, good worldbuilding, and plenty of action.

 

RELEASING AUGUST 1, 2014

 

Blurb:

Kev Thorsin has returned from a twenty-year war campaign across the stars, battle-weary and ready to settle down with the woman he was forced to leave behind. Amidst treachery that’s left his transport ship a floating hulk, he learns his own world has been overthrown by a corrupt regime. He’s driven to return to the only woman that’s been on his mind since the day he left.

His fiancé, Rianna Elain, is in the thick of it back home with a group of freedom fighters known as Libertas headed by the charismatic Terrill Briggs, a flirtatious yet honorable man who wants to see the people free once more and will go to great lengths to see it through. They are on the run from security forces and a noose that closes tighter each day.

In the midst of chaos, the two meet once more and their love for each other becomes a raging fire of passion hotter than the sun, an unstoppable force.  Hope for their future together rekindles, along with desires long pushed aside. A plan is hatched to take to the stars, bringing the remaining members of Libertas and their families to a place where they can live in safety, far off the grid, if they can just evade evil forces and get off the rock—a task easier said than done.  But will they succeed in starting a new life beyond Tetraparagon rule or will they live out their remaining days in hiding from a hand that stretches into the very black of space?

Reader Alert!  Warning!  Strong characters, mind-blowing action and steamy sex ahead.  Side effects may include a racing heart; heavy breathing and a need to take a hot shower with someone you love.

 

To My Readers:  I love writing heroes and heroines who are strong and confident in their own right, but who become so much more together than apart, a partner they can rely on when the chips are down and the crap’s about to hit the fan in the worst way.  The action explodes from the first pages, hot and heavy, and carries you through to a climax both satisfying and thrilling.  I hope you enjoy While You Were Away, my first work with Red Sage, and will join me for many more to come.”

 

About the Author: In truth, D. J. Davis is the definitive team of awesomeness that is Daniel and Jayne Davis.  Daniel has been writing science fiction and fantasy since he could hold a pencil.  Jayne is his grounding force, a writer in her own right, and his go-to for advice and support, as well as his brilliant wife.  Always one to push the boundaries, Daniel strives to write quality science fiction and fantasy with a love story behind it that will excite and titillate.  This powerful duo hits the ground running with tales that will leave you breathless and wanting more.

Another Teaser From A Gentleman Always Finds Out

One of the oldest palace in down town Dubrovnik

Something in her manner had attracted Julian from the start. He had seen her staring at him, but when their eyes met, she cast her gaze downward and scurried away. Her departure had left him confused, and now, minutes later, the sight across the room clarified why.

A deep and vibrant shade of red draped the arm of a dais in the game room, and the only thing keeping Julian in his spot in the hall between the ballroom and the front door was the fact that Lord Albert Inglis loomed over her. His thick hand slid over her creamy white shoulder, as if already staking his claim.

Although Kingsley could not understand why any sensible woman would feel any attraction to an overweight, sotted coxcomb. How can anyone want his beefy hands on them, knowing he is still going home to his wife? The morals of society appalled him, and Julian could not be more thankful for the lack of aristocratic blood running through his veins.

His thoughts were interrupted the moment the woman giggled. She moved her hand to muffle the sound, completely unaware he watched her intently. Lord Inglis pressed closer to her back, and with every millimeter, Julian cringed. Do not move another inch, you cur!

He should not be so distracted, but the damned woman gave him pause. She was dangerous. He could feel it in his bones. Even his lower extremities burned with fervor, showing ill regard for how bad of decision he was about to make.

You are here for the spy. Thief. Midnight rogue, dammit!

Despite his self-scolding, Julian pressed forth and did not stop until he fell into step next to the grotesque man named Lord Inglis. “I daresay, Albert, I am quite intrigued by this delightful creature who you are opting not to share with the rest of us gents. May I, at least, have her hand for one dance? I was thinking the quadrille.”

Lord Inglis hiccupped, tapping his divine company on her shoulder. “My dear, allow me to introduce you to Mr. Julian Kingsley. He is a former intelligence agent, rogue, and all around nuisance. Julian, this is Miss Mariah Harris. If you would like to accompany Mr. Kingsley here to the ballroom, I hear he is quite esteemed for his dancing, amongst other delights,” the man growled, while his expression resembled a grin.

The woman rose from her seat, and for once in his disgraced life, Julian was at a loss for words. Exquisite did not even begin to describe the beauty before him. Large, round, and expressive blue eyes peered back at him, while her raven black, curled hair framed her round face. Her lips curved into a soft smile, and when she offered her tiny, gloved hand, he accepted the gift gently, bringing it to his lips. She curtsied, and he bowed.

“Allow me. Julian Kingsley at your service, my lady.”

About Dark Fire

Dark Fire is intelligent, sexy and romantic. It feeds the mind, provokes the soul and offers sex in unexpected ways.

 

Blurb

Raoul, a C12th adventurer rescues Simone, the daughter of the legendary witch Melusine. Raoul, realises his danger too late. He has rescued her but also fallen captive to a love he will never escape. Both are now hunted, but as their pursuers close in, Simone has one last trick up her sleeve: Dark Fire, a satanic paste activated by sexual magic that will transport them through time and space. The only proviso is that they must find each other again. The penalty for failure is eternal damnation.

In the C21st their future hangs in the balance for Raoul is now Ralph and married to Laura. Simone is trapped in the C17th as Verity Strong. Time is against them…

Reader Alert! When Verity swaps bodies with Ralph she understands what it is to be a man. Ralph, trapped in her body sees things differently. Worse he is trapped in the C17th…but Verity has a plan.

To My Readers: As I Wrote Verity Strong, Sly And Relentless Gradually Took Over. For A Time I Thought I Was Exploring The Interplay Of Language, The Contrast Between The Robust Formality Of C17th English And The Way We Speak Now. But Verity Was Having None Of This. She Was After Only One Thing – Raoul – And This Time She Meant To Keep Him Forever.

 

EXCERPT

She opened the door wearing a man’s shirt, which stopped around the middle of her thighs. She stepped back unbuttoning the shirt, her breasts rising against the thin white cotton.

Verity grinned at me, and I awoke.

It was the first of many dreams that night, each one about Verity in provocative dress, coming towards me, willing me back. And through them all, Laura slept as one dead. Several times I touched her, hoping she might wake, and each time I felt guilty and turned, drifting back into sleep.

A cry awakened me. A fox, I thought, their cry at night so much like that of an infant. I absorbed the quietness of the room, the slow ticking of the clock, the duvet wrapped around me like a padded shroud. I made my way cautiously towards the window and there drew back the curtains, finding to my surprise the window wide open. At first I saw nothing, my eyes being still thick in sleep and then, across from me, I saw her. It was, or appeared to be, a woman crouched panther–like on one of the larger branches of a garden tree. She was looking at me, her eyes, grey and luminous, her hair flowing darkly across pale shoulders. It was Verity Strong.

“Raelph…dost thou forsake me?”

Then with a suddenness that made my heart kick against my chest, she jumped, jerking to a quick shuddering halt as the noose around her neck tightened. The image faded as I watched and with it went my resolve not to visit Susan the following day.
