Not Your Damn Submissive – Out Now!

It’s taken me a few days to get around to posting this, but Not Your Damn Submissive is now live and ready for readers!

I’m beyond pissed off with Callum Connors.

Yeah—the Callum Connors, star of my favourite TV show…and all my most private fantasies.

He’s a self-confessed Dom, and he wants me, even though I told him outright that I’m not interested in submission or in him.

But then I kissed him.

What possessed me? I don’t even remember who started it, me or him—just that I brushed against him, and then we were on the way to third base in the middle of the set.

Maybe I should have told him no again afterwards, but I just wanted to escape before he tried to take it further. I didn’t think I’d be able to resist him.

I still don’t.

Now he’s somehow thrown us together for two whole weeks, getting the studio to temporarily change my job from set decorator to his personal assistant. I can live with being his assistant, but I am not his damn submissive.

No matter how sexy he is.

Not Your Damn Submissive – Released 30th May

I’ve been writing this for a month already and have mentioned it a few times on social media, but I keep forgetting to blog about it, so I thought I’d make up for that today. Not Your Damn Submissive is a novella about a submissive with an attitude problem, but hold up before you call her a brat – she has a reason for it, and if I had her issues I’d have a little defensive anger towards Doms as well…

It will be told from two perspectives – Kat’s will be one of them, and the other will be Callum, the Dom who wants to claim her despite her stated aversion to the idea. This excerpt is from his point of view.

“You don’t actually need an assistant at all, do you?” she demanded, spinning to face me and walking backwards. No matter what the issue, you did not keep Darren waiting – this we both understood.

I might as well be honest with her. “For the most part, not really.”

She threw up her hands in silent supplication to an undefined deity. “So you’re just wasting my time for your own amusement, is that it? Making me run around after you and hoping I’ll just find you so sexually irresistible that I’ll beg for you to throw me down and take me?”

There was no point in getting into this argument when I’d need to be filming within a couple of minutes. “If you really want to have this conversation, we’re gonna need a hell of a lot longer than ten minutes and considerably more privacy than this, so I suggest you drop it for now, Little Miss Badass.”

Kat glowered. “Will you quit calling me that?”

“If you stop giving me the badass routine, then yeah, happily.”

“I think I have a right to be pissed off at you for what you’ve pulled. By your own admission, you don’t need me, so what possible reason could you have except to fuck with my life? Because nobody turns down the sexual advances of Callum goddamn Connors and gets away with it…”

I should have been way more annoyed than I was. Instead, I was enjoying myself. Not many people gave me hell these days, even when it would have been justified.

Lowering my voice, I told her, “The way I remember it, there were a couple of minutes where your body was pretty much begging for it, though my memory could be a little fuzzy from the way you were rubbing yourself all over my cock…”

“Oh, fuck you!” Her voice was three times as loud as mine had been, and we’d just arrived on set. Everyone looked up to see where the cursing had come from, and Kat’s face immediately flamed crimson. She shot me a dark look but refrained from saying anything further.

I’m still scribbling away for now, but I’ll have more breadcrumbs to drop within the next couple of weeks, and the release should be 30th May, barring any major disasters. 🙂

Available Now: Hot, Rich and Dominant 5 – No More Secrets

Yay! The newest instalment of Hot, Rich and Dominant is now available on All Romance eBooks, Smashwords, Amazon US and Amazon UK. More links to follow as I get them…

HotRichAndDominant5NMS

“If you don’t level with me, I can’t be your submissive. I can’t give control to someone who doesn’t trust me with the truth.”

Stepping into the spotlight…

Nell West has spent a whirlwind couple of months as Marc Cassidy’s submissive. But even as the handsome, charming vice-CEO of the Cassidy Corporation guides her into the BDSM scene at large, Nell senses he’s hiding a huge part of his past from her. What prompted him to leave the D/s community for over two years, and what exactly happened to end his relationship with his last submissive, Callie?

Conflicting emotions…

It’s not just Marc’s romantic past that remains an enigma. He’s working hard on something, but he’s keeping Nell in the dark. His intense, unspoken dedication to the project’s progress makes her uneasy. What is he planning, and why is it so important to Marc and his sister, Serena?

When the tension finally reaches breaking point and Marc’s carefully laid plans fall to pieces, Nell must find the strength to demand the same unfailing honesty from her Dom that he expects of her—whatever Marc’s reaction might be. Can she coax the secrets he’s hiding out into the open, or will he leave her with no choice but to walk away?

Question: Wait… Why is it named No More Secrets? I thought this book was going to be called Risk and Reward?

Answer: Well, yeah… but as you’ll know if you’re following my Facebook page, I’ve been having a little trouble with the ending, and the word count was going to be twice as long as the previous book’s. I was starting to feel the pressure, and that made me writer’s blocked! So rather than make everyone wait until the end of the year, I’ve split the book down into two and now I feel as though I have a bit more breathing room. 🙂

Collaring Nell

So… I found a gorgeous collar on Etsy that would be perfect for Marc from Hot, Rich and Dominant to give to his submissive, Nell. I was lucky enough to get permission from the trader who makes them to describe it in the collaring scene, so here’s Nell’s ‘official’ new collar! Go here to see more pics of it.

Nell Collar

Naturally she has a sturdier one for when Marc just has to pull her around the room by it. This would be a day collar. He’d have to pull her around by the hair instead if she was wearing this one. 😉

I’m still working on finishing up – I’ve got a few scenes left to write, but I’m being strict with myself and getting my writing time in. Excerpts coming soon…

Sunday Snog – Switching Off

It’s been a while since I’ve done a Sunday Snog! Here’s an excerpt from Switching Off, featured in Total-E-Bound’s Switch anthology.

switchingoff_800Jon seemed to sense her unease as he stroked his thumb across her cheekbone, affection in his eyes. “I’m the same guy you’ve always known, Nina. I can just see how much you need to let go of everything for a while. If you don’t want to do this, it’s fine. And if you do, I’ll go as slow as you need. Your choice.”

Nina closed her eyes, nuzzling her cheek against his palm. His intensity intoxicated her, and her usual stress-filled, whirling thoughts seemed to subside whenever he got this close. What harm could it do?

“Yes.”

Even with her eyes closed, she could sense him relaxing. He took a deep breath. Then, his voice rougher than usual, he murmured, “Open your eyes.”

With an effort, she did, and looked up into his face. He seemed to be examining each of her features anew, from her forehead to her chin, but lingering on her lips. His were so close, she couldn’t help but tilt her head further up, bringing her face closer to his. Daring him to take the next step.

Meeting her defiant gaze with a slight smile, he slipped his hand to the back of her neck again and squeezed gently. Her knees went weak and, as her eyelids fluttered shut again, he pressed his warm lips to hers.

Oh…fuck…

She swayed forward, her breasts grazing his chest as he wrapped his free arm around her waist, pulling her in close. His kiss was confident, dominant, almost controlling, and as she tried to push her tongue into his mouth he forced it back with his, taking full possession of her. And still he gripped the back of her neck with a solid, unrelenting pressure, making doubly sure she understood who was in charge.

The subtle presence of her lace and cotton thong had gone unnoticed for hours, but now Jon was all but fucking her mouth with his tongue she felt every minute sensation against her sensitive cunt. She shifted in his arms, moving closer, and felt the beginnings of his hard-on press against her lower belly. Moaning into his mouth, she stood on tiptoe to press the hardening ridge in his jeans against her clit, slipping her hands into his back pockets and drawing him even nearer.

Jon broke the kiss with a growled curse, moving his hand up into her hair and tugging her head back by a fistful of her blonde curls. “Oh, you want me to fuck you now?”

Nina began to nod, then winced as the movement made her scalp twinge. “I’ve wanted you to fuck me for years. Are you up to the challenge?”

He gave her a heart-stopping smile and abruptly released her, stepping completely out of reach and leaving her so unsteady she wanted to crumple to the floor. “If you’re up to my challenge, Nina, I’m up to yours. Let me see you kneel for me.”

Hot, Rich and Dominant 4 – Making a Scene… Out NOW!

HotRichAndDominant4It’s been a loooooong time coming – believe me, I know! But I’m hoping it was worth the wait. Making a Scene is now available on Smashwords and All Romance eBooks in .mobi (for Kindle), .epub (for Nook and most other e-readers) and .pdf (best for online reading). EDIT: It’s now also up on iTunes, Amazon US, Amazon UK, Barnes & Noble and Kobo.

Here’s the blurb to whet your appetite!

Figuring him out…

Returning to work after her erotic fairytale weekend of opulence and submission seems frustratingly mundane to Nell West, but she’s hopeful about her newfound submissive relationship with the CEO’s gorgeous son, Marc Cassidy. It seems that Marc can’t get enough of her, either, but after a private moment in his office is interrupted by his hot-tempered father, she hardly sees him for a week. When he discusses his father with her, Marc—usually so Dominant—almost seems afraid. What’s going on behind the scenes in the Cassidy family?

Pushing her boundaries…

After their long week of separation, Marc tells Nell that he wants to try a more intense scene with her. Despite her insecurities about the mysterious blonde woman who keeps showing up around him, Nell agrees to the strict guidelines her Dom sets for the evening. But can she endure all he’s asking of her, physically and mentally, when she has so many unanswered questions?

Release Date Set: Hot, Rich and Dominant 4

I can now confidently say that I’ll be releasing Hot, Rich and Dominant 4: Making a Scene at the end of this month – that is to say, by 30th June 2013 at the very latest.

It will now be the fourth book of five (Marc’s mysterious issues became unexpectedly darker than expected in this instalment!) but I’m now determined to continue writing in order to get the fifth and final part out by the end of July, a month after the June release date for part four. Since I now have far more time to devote to writing, due to changes in my working life, I’m absolutely certain I can pull this off.

Thank you for your continued nudges and enthusiasm – without them, I wouldn’t have gotten this far. 🙂

An Apologetic Update – Hot, Rich and Dominant 4

HotRichAndDominant4Hi everyone,

I was hoping to have gotten Hot, Rich and Dominant 4 out to you by now, but unfortunately a combination of ill health, my day job and a persistently noisy neighbour have kept me from getting much writing done. After several nudges by different people (and thank you, ALL of you – I feel treasured!) I thought I should make an official post explaining the delay.

At the moment, Nell is mid-funishment (fun punishment, of course) in Marc’s office, waiting impatiently for an orgasm. I know exactly what’s going to happen next, and for the entire rest of the book, and next week I’m going to be writing every day, because I will have cleared this project I’m working on.

The cover is made, the editing doesn’t take long, and it only takes an hour or so to make sure everything’s put together and uploaded. As soon as I have it done, you’ll know.

I really appreciate your patience, especially after the horrible delay between parts two and three. I promise it will NOT be anywhere near that long – no more than two weeks. In the meantime, feel free to let me know what you liked and didn’t like about the first three books – it really helps with a) my motivation and b) improving my work!
