Monster Blurb

I’m a monster.

There are no pretty words to wrap up the things I’ve done, the things I’ve been witness to, all in the name of the law. But wrong or right gets mixed up the longer you’re undercover, and what used to be a mask feels more like who I really am with each passing day.

Cold, ruthless, vicious. I’m Paulo García’s monster, and I’d swallowed that bitter pill whole, learned to deal with it… until she stormed into the house like some avenging angel.

And that’s what she is, an angel.

Nicole wants to save her brother. She showed up with an envelope full of cash and a smart mouth and found herself in a den of monsters. I wish I could say I was the best of them, I wish I could say I wanted to protect her — but she’s so damn sweet, and my life’s been bitter for too long.

And all I want is a taste before this world destroys her.

Excerpt

The boys opened the front door, and Paulo strolled into the sitting room, making his way to the wet bar. One of the most violent drug lords ever to come out of South America, and he looked like he was on vacation with his casual clothes, his falsely friendly demeanor. My grip on the tequila bottle tensed as I stared at the man, but I made sure my expression was blank. It didn’t matter how much I hated him, I was his until the job was done.

“Not curious about the girl, Andre?” Paulo asked, tilting up his fresh drink to take a sip.

“Why should I be curious when I can get the play by play just from listening?”

“Well, José seems to think she’s a security risk.”

“If you need her handled, I’ll do it, jefe. Otherwise, I see plenty of ass walking around Miami.” I stayed still. Discussing shit like this was practically second nature now.

Paulo chuckled, leaning back with his elbows on the bar. “That’s what I like about you, Andre. Cold as ice.” He waved his drink at the men crowding the front door where a buzz of conversation had picked up. “The others are so hot tempered, they don’t think. You think.”

“Emotion clouds judgment.”

“You’re right. My father used to say… mata a tu corazón, o te matará. Do you know this phrase?”

I hadn’t heard it before, but I knew what it meant, and it fit Paulo perfectly. “Kill your heart, or it will kill you.”

A shark’s grin spread across Paulo’s features. “Exactly. Emotion makes you weak, and weakness is death.”

“Your father was a smart man,” I answered, voice on automatic, but the words were almost overridden by the feminine shout that came from the front door.

“Are you in there Paulo García? HUH?”

The man’s eyebrows lifted the tiniest fraction, his chilling smile not shifting. “Let her in, José.”

“Keep your fucking hands off me.” The blonde that stumbled into the room from the foyer was clad in shorts and a form fitting blue shirt that had some phrase across it in pale, swirling text. Male laughter followed her, and I forced myself to be still, not even breathing so I wouldn’t move.

She was definitely American, and fucking beautiful, and as I turned my eyes back to Paulo I knew the man smelled blood in the water. A wicked hunger waking up in those coal black eyes — the same hunger that I hated myself for feeling. “Hola, señorita. What can I do for you?”

“Do for me?” Her voice was practically boiling with rage, tanned cheeks flushing with it as she held out a thick envelope. “How about leaving my little brother the fuck alone? I’ve got your money, and I want you to take it and then never fucking speak to him again — any of you! That is what you can do for me, asshole.”

Marco and Diego started laughing behind her, amused by her little outburst as they looked over her curves, her strong legs, all the way down to the multi-colored running shoes on her feet. Even Paulo seemed vaguely amused as he spread his arms wide. “I have no idea who your brother is, belleza, but if he owes me money that was his choice.”

“Fuck you! I know you hurt Chris, threatened him, but this is it. Take your money, and get out of his life!” She shook the envelope again, shouting, and my cock twitched at the same moment my stomach dropped.

Brave and stupid. Paulo was going to eat her alive.

Author Spotlight- Spanking Jade by Jessica Brand

Here’s a brand new, super sexy military story from Jessica Brand. 🙂

Excerpt:

By the time she had finished work for the day, Jade was grateful to get out onto the upper deck and relax in her favorite space. Reminded of what she had been subjected to the previous evening every time she moved, she smiled inwardly as she relived the experience.

“Ah, so this is where you go to get some private time.”

Her eyes had been closed, hidden by sunglasses and she was startled to hear the voice. Opening her eyes, she saw Rhyss looking down at her. His smile lit up his face. She started to get up, wincing as she moved but he held out his hand. “Don’t get up, Seaman Franklin.”

“I’m sorry, sir,” Jade spluttered as she got to her knees.

“You really don’t take instructions very well at all, do you? Maybe we need to provide a little more training for you.”

“Yes, sir. I mean, no, sir.” She was at eye level with his bulging crotch and was sure it was increasing in size before her eyes. She couldn’t be positive and wondered whether it was simply what her mind wanted her to see. “I mean I’m sure I’ll respond the way you demand of me with the right sort of guidance, sir.” All of a sudden she had an overwhelming urge to thrust her mouth against the bulge, but she managed to resist the temptation, knowing how badly that could turn out.

Glancing around to ensure they were alone, Rhyss reached behind her head and grasped her hair. He pulled it down, forcing her to look back up into his eyes. “I’m sure I will master you before long, Jade.”

Instantly her body responded. She didn’t blink. Her eyes didn’t waver. Her breathing became shallow and rapid. His choice of words, his show of strength and his raw animal magnetism resulted in her nipples hardening up inside her bra and the now familiar rush of fluid to her sex as her body prepared itself for what it unconsciously sought. She didn’t reply as she submitted to his touch, praying he would take it further, but knowing why he couldn’t. Inwardly she knew that he had already mastered her but he was not yet aware of it. She was his for the taking, and she prayed he would take her, soon.

After what seemed like minutes, but which was really only seconds, he released her hair. As he turned to leave he said, “I’ll give your butt some time to heal before you are summoned again. Next time we might explore some new ideas, something a little more intimate if you’re up for it.”

Remaining on her knees, Jade slumped back down until her butt touched her heels, causing her to spring back up slightly. “You could fill me in any way you desire, sir,” she said quietly, her words disappearing in the breeze as she watched his firm butt disappearing into the distance.

 

Spanking Jade cover-RG-JB

 

Blurb:

As a child, life for Jade was good until a family tragedy changes her forever. Despite the best efforts of her mother to keep her in line, Jade’s future looked increasingly grim.

Head strong and wild, she eventually found herself on the wrong side of the law. A prosecutor who sees a glimmer of potential delivers her an ultimatum—she could go to jail or she could join the navy. A few short months later she has graduated from recruit school and looks forward to joining her first ship.

Despite the best of intentions, it isn’t long before she finds herself on the wrong side of the naval discipline system. Facing another choice—be discharged or agree to a course of discipline—she experiences the first of many somewhat unorthodox and definitely unauthorized punishments designed to bring her into line. What she’d never expected is that the unintentional consequences of those punishments also bring her to life.

The pain and humiliation of baring her body in front of others and being soundly spanked becomes something she craves. The day she sees one of the handsome young officers from her ship emerge from her place of punishment, her imagination works overtime. Why was he there? How could she get to know him?

They end up drawn together in a number of unintended ways and she finds herself falling hopelessly in love. Will he return her love and will he be able to deliver the discipline she can no longer live without?

About Jessica Brand

Jessica was born in Melbourne, Australia in 1958. Having lived in many parts of Australia and overseas, she now resides in Sydney and writes for fun.

With a lifelong interest in her subject matter she finally decided to put some of her experiences and fantasies into words, toning them down somewhat for public consumption. Her first book was released in mid 2014, using the pseudonym of R. R. Greaves. This was followed by a new release in Feb 2015 and there are a number of new stories in different stages of production.

With a particular interest in specific forms of erotica, the stories have a lot of explicit detail that comes from years of “hands on” experience. All have a strong element of power exchange between consenting parties. While most involve a key female character submitting to a powerful male, they have a mixture of dominant characters with women submitting to other women, men submitting to women and men submitting to other men.

A key part of the exchange of power between the characters involves the use of consensual physical and mental force, BDSM and spanking.

Would you like a sneak peek into my new military romance?

🙂

(Undercover MI Officer, Hunter Jones catches Smyth reading after lights out. )

What else was she hiding, besides the journal she had written in, the past few nights, and those books? He should have confiscated them as soon as he saw them. But he loved watching her read. Tonight, he couldn’t see her, because she had pulled the damn wool blanket over her head. Smart girl. He had watched her the last few nights as she read, under the sheets, the light of her flashlight showcasing her for him. Since she was only the second bunk set inside the barracks, it was easy to watch her. Had she known anyone could see her, the way her eyes widened or her rapid breaths when she read something exciting? What kind of book was she reading? Her breathing, and the way she tensed during certain moments, led him to guess it was a sexual book. He couldn’t see her face, and barely could make out her muffled breathing, but he could see the way her body shifted under the blankets. Her hips rocking gently, the blanket tightening over her legs as they pressed against them. He shouldn’t be watching this. Both hands seemed to be on the book, based on her position, but it didn’t mean her lower legs weren’t doing something he shouldn’t watch—not if he was a gentleman.

Who had ever mistaken him for a gentleman, though? Damn it. He’d better go stop her before she did something they might both regret. Besides, he needed to stay focused on the mission. And taking his cock in hand in the private bathroom after watching her masturbate was not the best way to stay on track. Mission first, damn it.

He strode over to the bed and yanked off her covers.

She squeaked and tried to hide her book under her pillow, but he took it from her easily.

“Aren’t you supposed to be sleeping, McCullen?” He knew it. Her eyes were dilated perfectly, and now wide with a wonderful combination of lust and fear at having just been caught. “What kind of book is so important that you would risk fatigue and getting caught?”

He stared her down, and the flush crept up over her entire face. Nice. The pink tinge complemented her strawberry blonde hair, which hung in long loose, messy curls around her shoulders. God, she was gorgeous. This is what she would look like right after he spanked her ass for staying up too late—right before fucking her senseless. She licked her plump lips nervously, and he stifled a groan. This woman was dangerous. He needed to stop this insanity right now, take her books away, send her to bed with a scolding, and then make her do a bunch of pushups in the morning.

She shifted on her bed as she sat up straight, the covers falling from around her. Her perky nipples shone through her grey t-shirt, when she ran her hand nervously through her hair. He could almost touch her nipples, as close as he stood. Damn, at this angle, he could just lean down a little and pull one of those firm buds into his mouth, suck, lick through the cotton until she begged him for mercy. His cock tightened against the front of his sweat pants. Damn. If Private Diamond woke up, she would get an eyeful. He shifted to the side, and pulled his t-shirt down—not that it covered his interest. But it helped a little. “Come with me. Bring the banned material into the office, please.”

Blurb:

Basic training is a killer—in more ways than one.

USA Today bestselling author Katherine Deane brings you a romantic suspense that will leave you gasping.

Twenty-four year old journalist Smyth McCullen is following the trail of a killer, right onto Fort Hancock Army training center. After two murders of young women just out of basic, both under the same drill sergeant, Smyth knows she must join the Army to unravel the truth.

Little does she know that Basic is dangerous in more ways than one. Protecting her battle buddy, working through sixteen hours of grueling training a day, and following a potential bad guy, is nothing compared to falling for a dominant, undercover drill sergeant.

Hunter Jones is undercover, looking into the potential murders under Drill Sergeant Cage’s direction. He’s been through many deployments, both public, and some not so public. He’s interrogated bad guys, fallen behind enemy lines, and is prepared in every way to act as a drill sergeant and save another potential victim. What he’s not prepared for is the sexy, young strawberry blonde who is definitely not eighteen.

As their attraction grows, they march one step closer to the end of the session, and imminent danger. Can Smyth find the killer in time? Can Hunter protect the next target, especially if it’s Smyth?

Lovers of steamy romance, hot military heroes and plucky heroines will adore Katherine Deane’s hot new romantic suspense.

Thanks for stopping by.

Thank you, military! (A tribute to soldiers in spanking romance)

thank you military

 

In honor of this year’s Memorial Day, I am doing something different.

First and foremost, thank you to all the brave military men and women who have served and are serving our country. Thank you to the spouses and families who carry on without their loved ones- sometimes, forever. Thank you to the business who bless the families and soldiers.

As a former Navy Brat, Army wife, and Army Captain, I have seen both sides of the military life, and am so grateful for all the awesome blessings I have today.

So Thank you!!!

Today, I am sharing some books that show the different sides of military life. Yes these are fiction, but they honor the before, during, and after effects, either from the soldiers’ perspective or the significant other.

If you decide to buy or read a book this weekend, please consider one of these.

And thank you to the authors who incorporated U.S military men or women as main characters in their stories.

These are just the ones that jumped into my mind first. I am sure there are plenty more from the spanking romance / erotic romance genre. Please feel free to add others in your comments below. 🙂

Happy Memorial Day!

 

Taming-Kat-Big         Amazon Link

 I loved this book, and appreciated the author including PTSD as part of the male main character’s development. Not only was it sexy, and a ton of fun, but the brief explanation of PTSD really rounded him out.

 

 

as natural as breathing               Amazon Link

I love the premise of this story.  A scarred. wounded soldier, fresh from Afghanistan, still fighting his own battles. But he meets a man who is not afraid to love him for who he is. It sounds like a beautiful love story.  M/M

 

 

livs journey                Amazon Link

This was one of my very first books by Patricia Green, so it has a special place in my heart. I loved the fact that it had a non typical female character- a plus sized model. Kudos to Patricia for that. But what really made me fall in love with the whole Journey family (this is one of my favorite families), was Trey. Uber sexy, dominant, former military man- two tours in Afghanistan. I loved this story!

 

general's daughter           Amazon Link

This series is about a military family- Marines. I loved this story, and adore Sam, the female MC. She is just so much fun! All the men in her family, (her brother, father and Uncle) spank her to keep her in line. If I were being completely honest, I would tell you not only that this series given me a TON of wonderful fantasies, and I am also seriously crushing on Uncle Scott.  Yum!

 

callie mae and marine        Amazon link

Okay, I loved the premise of this story! A wounded former marine dealing with depression after his release from duty. He agrees to do a secret project- time travel to the old west. This one is on my Kindle. I can’t wait to read it. I love Stevie! 🙂 (I also love all the O’Malley’s!)

 

sir yes sir       Amazon link

I can totally relate to this story! A soldier comes back after a long tour of duty, and both he and his wife have to figure out how to adjust to civilian life. The author is fantastic at writing realistic stories, so this one should be pretty spot on. And I bet there will be lots of spankings. 😉

 

marines pet          Amazon Link

This one sounds fun! A Marine Corps Sergeant takes his bratty neighbor in hand.  Pet Play, BDSM, lots of spankings!

 

safeinhisarms_full       Amazon Link

Yum! Former marine. One night stand leads to accidental pregnancy. He comes back as a Black Ops agent, and protects her from bad guys. Sexy, yummy. Loved it! (Have I ever mentioned how much I love Renee? I’ll mention it again 😉 )

 

something has to give         Amazon Link

I loved this book. (Okay, I love everything Maren writes, but still… 🙂 ) A hot former soldier, whose wife left him while he was deployed; her loss- this guy is AMAZING! Lots of sparks between him and the “squatter” who took over his home. So much fun! 🙂 this was part of the Naughty List box set.

 

captain my cpt      Amazon Link

This one sounds sexy and fun, and I have to admit, I get all swoony over a man in uniform. 😉

 

Happy Memorial Day, friends! Hope you find a good soldier to help you get your “spank on” this weekend.

thank you patches
