Excerpt:

Less than five minutes later, she let him have it. Standing on her aching legs and wobbling back and forth—maybe the second glass of wine hadn’t been the best idea—she railed at the poor man.

“You want me to gain weight? As in, not being able to fit into my Batman jammie pants anymore, kind of weight? How much poundage are we talking? Muscle or fat? How much of each? How fast and how long? Why? I am okay with my body and all the natural shifting it’s doing, but to suggest purposefully adding to the mix…” she sputtered and sat back down with a heavy oomph.

“Shay, I’m talking about a little extra weight for the race. I’ve done the research, and the best finishers have all had more to burn on those difficult days,” he reasoned.

“And a little extra layer of fat might keep me warm during the night portion,” she said, frowning. “It makes sense. But it goes against everything I have done growing up.”

“I know. Sorry. You don’t have to do any of this if you don’t want to. It’s your body and your race. Mind if we talk it out? What are the biggest cons and pros? Why do this? What’s your ultimate goal?”

“All right, but I’m going to need another glass of wine and a back massage.” She was kidding about the last part, but he took it in stride.

After refilling her glass of wine, and setting it on the coffee table, he motioned for her to flip over onto her tummy.

“I was only playing. You don’t have to—”

“Shay, I don’t do things unless I want to.” He looked sweet and commanding at the same time. “The hottest woman I ever met asked me to rub my hands and knuckles across her gorgeous bare skin. The woman I’m training asked me, her trainer, to help her alleviate some soreness. Either one, I’m in and happy to oblige. Would you like me to massage your back?”

“Yes, thank you. But don’t think about trying to get me to make any decisions while I’m turning into a big puddle of goo. That’s entrapment.”

He laughed. “Okay, no entrapment. Just the brilliant Mr. Peabody doing what he does best.”

She held the blanket in front of her chest as she pulled off her T-shirt and lay down on her stomach. “Massages?”

His breath sounded like it hitched for a moment before he answered her with firm, heated palms along each side of her spine. “Brainstorming.”

Blurb:

A forty-three-year-old divorcee finds love in the arms of a younger man while training for the hardest race of her life. Which will prove to be more difficult? Running a grueling one hundred thirty-five mile race through Death Valley, or the not-so-socially-acceptable relationship her family won’t accept?

Medieval Spankings and Sex- just how kinky were these people?

 

conquered brides collection

 

I have Korey Mae Johnson with me today for a fun interview about the brand new medieval box set she wrote with Renee Rose, Sue Lyndon, Ashe Barker and Dinah McLeod. Would you like to know what spankings were like back in medieval days? How about kinky sex? Surely it was just a white sheet with a hole in it, right? NOT! Join us for an informative interview. 🙂

Welcome, Korey Mae!

Korey Mae Johnson: First of all, thanks so very much for having me on your blog, Katherine. I’m so excited to be here. It’s also gonna be really fun to talk about my new medieval spanking story collection set, Conquered Brides, which I wrote along with four other awesome authors: Renee Rose, Sue Lyndon, Ashe Barker, and Dinah McLeod. All these women are amazing and their talent really raises the bar. I was excited for an opportunity to join their project, and I can’t believe it’s out already! Time certainly flew by fast!

 Katherine Deane: Who came up with the idea of sacking a castle and marrying off the individual women?

Korey Mae Johnson: James (my husband) and I thought of it while we were in Europe, when we were touring Germany. We visited Hohenzollern castle and, after touring the newly discovered underground passages and falling in love with the history and the majesty of its position on a hill, we put our heads together and thought up the idea. Afterwards, we asked the wonderful Renee Rose to spearhead the project, put it together and became its fearless leader, keeping us in line. 🙂 Conquered Brides is different than many box sets because it’s not just in one location, but it’s plot is driven by a huge event (the castle being seized) which sets everyone in motion, Because of that there’s a lot of interweaving between the books. They could be read separately by anyone, but reading it as a group would really be the most fun, I think.

 Katherine Deane: What’s the most fun about writing a Medieval piece?

 Korey Mae Johnson: The medieval version of chivalry is a hoot to write–dexterity in fighting, valor, courtesy, pride. And it’s not the same type you find in romance novels from any other time period. It’s more primal, more serious, more life and death. There’s a lot of men protecting women in life and death scenarios more often, and there’s sort of a rougher, less polite quality about it. It’s a little darker, more barbaric and viking like than more modern romances.

 Katherine Deane: Least favorite?

 Korey Mae Johnson: Well, with that darkness I was talking about, there’s also a lot of violence and flat-out dirtiness (although I did learn that bathing in Medieval times was popular as were public baths. It wasn’t until the black plague that they stopped doing it frequently, but that was in the mid 1400s). Unsanitary conditions that we have to be careful to admit to but not glory and revel in, to make it realistic but still keep it hot. Honestly, I think if we got blasted back to the late 1200s we probably wouldn’t make it–we’d probably black out the first time we saw a medieval “gardrobe”. Also, we had to be very, very careful about the language we used, the foods our characters ate, etc. It was certainly a different time that wasn’t very much like our own in a lots of ways.

 Katherine Deane: What were some of the spanking implements used in those times?

 Korey Mae Johnson: There aren’t a whole lot of differences between then and now. I mean, obviously spatulas are out because they weren’t invented yet, BUT there have been references to domestic discipline, namely whippings, thrashings, and spankings leading back to the ancient Egyptians. The birch was already popular for schoolmasters and tutors to carry in the middle ages, and royalty did already frequently imply whipping boys & girls (normally their whipping boys & girls were from a noble family, and normally they were playmates of the future heir to the throne leading to special privileges later in life). Rods were commonly used, switches, and martinets, and of course over-the-knee spankings have been recorded as far back as Roman times. And the list goes on.

birching in olden times   floggin in olden times

 Katherine Deane: Have any of you tried out any of “said” implements?

  Korey Mae Johnson: I’ve never tried a birch. My husband can make a brilliant one, but so far I’ve never been brave enough to try it. Other than that… yep. Tried them all. Thanks to spanking parties, because James doesn’t use martinets or whips.

 Katherine Deane: If you could be one of the characters from the box set, which one would you be, and why?

 Korey Mae Johnson: I don’t think I could say and explain without giving the my book away, but in short I’d be Princess Susanna, and I’ll let my readers guess why. 🙂

 Katherine Deane: Do you like Monty Python? 😉

 Korey Mae Johnson: Hell yeah I do–and the naughty, naughty Zoot. Because she can really start a party!

 Katherine Deane: Mmm, Naughty Zoot. hehe. I love that scene 🙂

After beta’ing  one of these fantastic stories, I know all about the sexy stuff that happens behind castle doors. Was sex really like this in these time periods, or do the authors use some artistic license to add to the appeal?

 Korey Mae Johnson: Medieval times were, and  I’m quoting here, “Nasty, brutish, and short.” So I’m assuming the sex had to often be absolutely awesome to make up for it. That and they had a ton of it. The average woman had 12 children in her lifetime…. so it had to have been at least just as frequent. That’s what I’d like to believe, anyway. 🙂 Most historians that I’ve read say that, despite arranged marriages of the nobility and later marriages of the lower classes, people were screwing each other like rabbits compared to even our time. And they got around–did you know there were holy ordained brothels? Supposedly it was regarded as fact that if there weren’t a boatload of brothels in town that soldiers and other men would just rape whoever. So they made it happen. I need to read more into it, but the research so far has always been just amazing or shocking.

Thanks again, Katherine!

Katherine Deane: Thanks for chatting with me, and congratulations on the new set! I am already reading it, and am absolutely loving it! 🙂

 

Blurb:  When the castle they called home is besieged and ultimately falls, five women are captured and carried off as wives by their foes. Will they be treated as no more than the spoils of war, or can their new lords prove themselves worthy of the love and submission of their conquered brides?

The Conquered Brides is a five-book collection featuring brand-new titles from five top erotic romance authors. This collection includes:

 Commanding the Princess, by Korey Mae Johnson

As the ruler of Hohenzollern Castle in name only, Susanna has watched helplessly for years as her power-hungry uncle made one enemy after another for her. One enemy stands out, and the moment she catches sight of him, Princess Susanna is certain that it will be Gerhard of Bavaria who brings her world down around her. As his army smashes through her gates, Susanna makes the only choice she has left. She surrenders herself to Gerhard, hoping to win mercy for her people, though she fears it will come at the cost of her life. But she soon learns that Gerhard has other plans for her, plans which may end with her surrendering much more than just her castle to him.

 

The Knight’s Seduction, by Renee Rose

Avowed to never again yield to a man’s ill-treatment, Lady Daisy stands ready to fight to the death when her castle is sacked. The imposing knight Sir Barrett has other ideas, however, and to her dismay, Daisy soon finds herself not only disarmed, but soundly spanked as well. Sir Barrett takes her as his captive bride, but when she shows real terror at the prospect of consummating their marriage, he offers her a bargain. She will offer her body to him and accept the pleasurable torments he inflicts, but he will not claim her fully until she aches for it so badly she begs him. Certain she will do no such thing, Daisy agrees, but can she resist the knight’s seduction?

 

The Widow Is Mine, by Ashe Barker

Since her husband’s untimely passing, Lady Natalia has resigned herself to a quiet life as a young widow and perhaps one day as a nun. But when her adopted home is conquered by the enemy, her world is turned upside down. After he rescues her from the chaos of Hohenzollern’s fall, Duke Stefan of Richtenholst cannot imagine allowing Natalia to languish behind the walls of a convent. The duke takes Natalia home as his wife, and he quickly proves himself ready to compel her obedience when it is necessary, but can he ever truly make her his own?

 

Conquering Lady Claire, by Sue Lyndon

As Hohenzollern Castle falls, mayhem unfolds around Lady Claire, and her only aim is to lead as many women and children of the castle to safety as possible. In an odd turn of fortune, her courageous efforts ultimately lead to her capture by none other than Lord Galien of Minrova, the very man that her brother, a powerful duke, recently commanded to find her and claim her as his wife. Claire’s defiance is quickly overcome by means of a firm hand applied to her bare bottom, but Galien is not content merely going through the motions of a political marriage. His skilled lovemaking soon leaves his new bride begging for more, but can he conquer her heart as well?

 

Kidnapped and Claimed, by Dinah McLeod

When her husband’s repeated infidelities and drunken insults become too much to bear, Lady Cecily flees to her childhood home at Hohenzollern, but things quickly go from bad to worse and she is kidnapped from the castle stables only moments after her arrival. Cecily ignores her abductor’s warnings of ruin about to befall Hohenzollern and his claim that he took her from the castle only to keep her safe. She resists him every step of the way, until at last he spanks her long and hard. Despite his firm chastisement, it soon becomes clear to Cecily that her captor cares for her in a way her husband never did. But can she forgive him for stealing her from her home?

 Publisher’s Note: The Conquered Brides contains spankings, sexual scenes, and more. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.

Punishing Portia

When well-known chef and restaurateur David Marone recognizes the food critic who just lambasted him in a review on the charity auction block, he bids an inordinate amount to keep her as his slave for three nights. He remembers the haughty foodie from culinary school seventeen years earlier, and relishes the idea of getting even with her for her mean-spirited review. Portia Sands hopes the dark and gorgeous Chicago chef who won the bid for her at the Castle charity auction doesn’t know her real identity as the food critic who tore him apart in a review the week before. She finds he hasn’t changed since culinary school–still arrogant, over-confident and domineering. Unfortunately, he has the same effect on her now as he did then: reducing her to a trembling mass of jello. When he pushes her to her limits, placing her in a cage like a pet, she discovers he knows who she is, and means to exact revenge. She considers calling the Castle safeword to end their time together, but some part of her won’t allow it. Somehow she must survive three nights as his slave and keep her heart in the process.

 

Buying Brianny

He was a man for God’s sake. A man living in the twentieth century where treating a woman delicately had been bred into him. You never hit a girl, his mother had taught him that from a tender age. Women’s rights were touted hither and yon. Spanking was for disobedience in children. No, children weren’t spanked anymore either.

Kian had been spanked many times as a child. His single mother might have seemed like a country mouse, but she’d walloped him good on more than one occasion. And he’d deserved everything she dished out. He knew it—and he knew she loved him and wanted the best for him too.

That hadn’t worked with an ex of his though. She hadn’t thought of it as loving when he’d busted her ass for drinking and driving. No, she’d ended the relationship in a hurry. Of course he’d never repeated the mistake with another women. Not even his Brianny, who as it turns out, has craved discipline among other things.

Brianny has a bucket list, not the kind you want to do before you die—the kind you do before you get married. Okay, maybe not that either, but her sister says unless Brianny explores her inner submissive, she’ll never be content with her future husband.

But what if said future husband turns her away because he doesn’t like her submissive side? It had taken Brianny a pint of Hot Damn and her kinky sister to even put voice to her secret desires.

Some people go to strange and amazing lengths to prove their love. All Brianny wants as proof is for Kian to buy her at The Castle’s New Year’s Eve charity auction, then tie her up and take away her control. Consentual, non-consent, that’s what her sister had called it. Was that too much to ask?

Will Kian pay the asking price?

 

Sharing Silver

It’s been six months since her vanilla marriage ended in divorce, and Sylvia is craving some fun and excitement – not to mention kink. So when her friend Rosa tells her about a slave auction being held at her workplace, the Castle, Sylvia throws caution to the wind and signs herself up to fly all the way to America to be sold off to the highest bidder under the nickname Silver. Gorgeous twin Castle Masters, Travis and Trevor, can have any girl they choose – and frequently do. The only downside to topping female guests, however, is the fact that there’s never enough time to build trust. So when Trevor hears about the auction, he decides it’s time to be selfish, and he and his brother set about looking for a plaything they can do whatever they want with – a girl with as few limits as possible. When Silver and the twins meet, the chemistry is instantaneous and palpable. But all too soon, something more begins to develop between the three. What should have been a few days of physical excitement turns into an emotional roller coaster – not only for Silver, but for Travis and Trevor as well. Overwhelmed by the events at the BDSM resort – and her feelings – Silver tries to get to grips with her past, as well as the fact that she’s rapidly falling in love with the two biggest playboys in Ohio. In turn, Travis and Trevor are smitten by the mysterious girl from Australia, but whenever they try to get closer emotionally, she clams up. Can the twins make her see what she means to them before it’s too late, and Silver gets back on the plane home?

 

Owning O

She’s the most highly-coveted submissive the Castle has ever known. She never says no, never cries her safeword, and never plays with the same Dom twice. For years Alan has watched her, always looking but never allowed to touch until the night the Castle hosts its first ever charity auction. Seizing his chance, Alan bids, but defeating the other Doms in the audience is only the first and easiest step in his bid to own the infamous O. Freeing her from herself quickly proves to be much, much harder… Owning O. Welcome to the Castle.

 

Rosie’s Resolution

‘Don’t chicken out’ – those three little words are at the top of Rosa’s list of resolutions. Sure, she’s never before kept any of her past resolutions for even a week, but she is determined that this year it will be different. As soon as Master Marshall announced that a Charity Auction would be held to honor one of the Castle’s founding Masters, Don, Rosa knew it was fate. As an employee of the Castle, that marvelous place where any and all dreams and fantasies can become reality, she knows that this is the time to pursue her dream. Time to remove her Nanny uniform and don the clothes she has been dreaming of wearing for as long as she can remember.

This New Year’s Eve, she will stand on the stage and pray that someone will bid for her and want to be her Daddy. The moment the gavel falls, Rosa becomes Rosie – the Little girl who will spend the next few days discovering what it’s like to be taken care of, to be cuddled, and loved… not only by a handsome, wonderful Daddy, but, to her immense surprise, by a beautiful, loving Mommy as well… Will she discover that being Little isn’t all fun and games? Will she admit when she’s been naughty – remembering that breaking rules has painful consequences for her backside? Will she keep her resolutions long enough to find the answers she seeks? And even if she doesn’t chicken out, will her heart be able to pay the price?

 

The room grew quiet when Master Marshall ascended the stage. His formal black leathers melded him with the darkness in the room, and just the sight of him as he crossed the dais to take up the auctioneer’s microphone made the already thick tension in the room heavier.

“Good evening,” Master Marshall greeted, while the lights on the stage moved to center him and bring the Master of the Castle into stark relief against the red backdrop of the heavy velvet curtains. “Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to the Castle’s first ever Charity Submissive Auction. As many of you know, this last summer the Castle lost one of its own to cancer. For those of you who knew him, the loss has been soul-rending. For those who didn’t, Master Don was one of the original six Masters with the vision to help me take a dilapidated stone structure going to rubble in Scotland and bring it here, to Ohio. His greatest contribution to our facility has been the Nobles’ Program, the period costumes, and the Master’s Supper and Show, where he presided every night without fail that entire first year. There are bits and pieces of his influence in every wing and every hall, and in the rules by which we abide. In short, the Castle never would have become the success it is today without Don, and so, what better way to honor his memory than by hosting this charity event? Bid and bid generously. Each submissive you are about to meet has pledged to make this a weekend to remember, and every penny you spend not only will the Castle match, but it will, in Don’s name, be donated to aid in a very worthy cause: the fight to eradicate cancer for good.”

Applause erupted through the room. Master Marshall held up his hands, waiting for the room to quiet. “Before we begin, let’s go over the rules. What you are purchasing tonight is the use of a willing submissive who has vowed to make herself yours from the moment you make payment until ten o’clock Monday morning. If you are the winning bidder in an auction, your submissive will be removed to a waiting area while you settle your account. You will then be given a file containing his or her likes, wants, desires…and hard limits. You will make yourself familiar with those limits and you will not cross those lines.”

The quiet that had descended over the audience became amplified as Marshall looked over them, the ice blue of his gaze seeming to pierce each one of them in turn.

“Your submissive has vowed to make his or herself pliant to your desires,” Marshall continued, and his stare became positively glacial. “But no still means no. If you cross that line, you will find yourself in my office and I will not be forgiving. Also, the Castle rule regarding gags is still very much in effect. If you do not apply for a waiver and I catch you using one, I will not be forgiving. Are these rules understood?”

No one in the audience said a word, but his edicts were crystal clear and after another sweeping glare, Marshal nodded. “Then let us begin. Our first submissive, ladies and gentlemen. Please welcome…Jasmine.”
