I don’t know if I’ve made a big deal about this or not, but I have some GREAT news. Ya know that little Beauty and the Beast retelling I did a while back? Well it’s coming back out in a spanking new edition. It’s romantic, it’s kinky… it’s got werewolves and D/s and good and evil and spanking and sex and its just… uggh… its just too much. It’s coming soon from Purple Sword Publications…………
I hate that phrase, “domestic discipline.” It sounds so… formal. Or like some kind of government program. At any rate, love it or hate it, I suppose that some would call my new release, “One Hundred Strokes,” an exercise in domestic discipline. Though the couple in the story are not married, they are in a long-term, monogamous relationship. Our heroine, Selene, is desperate to explore the darker, more adventurous side of her sexuality by tempting her lover with a little sensual spanking. I decided I’d share a little excerpt with you guys today from the beginning of the book. Here, Julian has discovered Selene’s fantasy and well…. to know more you’ll have to read for yourself….
“I didn’t mean that you don’t love me. It’s just that sometimes you put me off for work. I don’t feel…you know…like the center of attention. And sometimes being the center of attention is nice.”
“I see,” he replied. He said no more but continued brushing out Selene’s thick locks. Over and over he dragged the bristles through her hair, smoothing it until the gentle strokes lulled her into a relaxed state of contentment. After several moments, his voice broke the silence, jerking Selene from her reverie. “You know, some might say that a need to be the center of attention all the time is selfish and rude.” Selene glanced into the mirror, seeing that his mouth was quirked into a playful smile. “Very unbecoming of a lady.”
“I’ve never thought of myself as a proper lady. You know that,” she replied, returning his smile with a spark of mischief in her eyes. “You of all people should know that.”
“Despite my tutelage.” He pulled back, standing up and tossing the hairbrush onto the bed. She started to follow, but Julian laid a heavy hand on her shoulder, pushing her back onto the seat. “Stay here. I have something I want to show you.”
Gee… I wonder what he wants to show her. And is it bigger than a baby’s arm?? To find out, you gotta buy the book. So CLICK the image above and it will rocket you right on over to the Ellora’s Cave website where you can pick up this delectable little treat for just $1.49. And after you read it, come on back over and leave me a comment. You may just find one of my backlist in your email….
Greetings, faithful readers! I’m back once again, coming to you from the very hot, wet South. It’s been a long, hot summer so far but I can assure you that I’ve been busy. AND you’ll be seeing lots more of me in the coming weeks as I crawl out of obscurity to promote my newest release from Ellora’s Cave— “One Hundred Strokes.” It’s the first in a series of short things I’ve been writing about fetishes. Now don’t think “oh yay, another book about whips and chains. It’s much better than that! I decided that I wanted to do some stories about fetishes that aren’t so common. In case you didn’t know, fetish can be any object or action that habitually incites a sexual response. Whips, chains and latex are just the tip of the iceberg.
In “One Hundred Strokes” I wanted to explore one of my favorite fetishes: spanking. Before the question comes to my inbox– you know the question: “So Lexxx, do you get your ideas based on your own fetishes?”, let me go ahead and clear up the rumors: sometimes. Spanking IS on my menu of adult play. I’m a receiver, not a giver. There. The elephant in the room is out. But I don’t always write about my own fetishes. I enjoy creating characters that are nothing like me, but of course there will always be something of myself lurking under the surface. Anywho, so “One Hundred Strokes” is the story of a couple, Julian and Selene, whose relationship has gotten pretty stale. Through an accident, Julian manages to discover that his girl has a little kink that he didn’t know about.
It was very important to me to show a loving couple engaging in fetish play. I’ve heard so many people talk about guilt and embarrassment when it comes to discussing what they like in bed. It’s as if they think the Sex Police are going to break down their door and carry them off to jail. Selene and Julian are successful, regular folk who need some spice. Just like the rest of us.
So go check it out. Read it with your mate. Read it by yourself. Read it to the dog. Just go forth and read. And stay tuned over the next few weeks for more blogs on this subject as I pimp the book all over the place.
