Laura’s Longing by Jessica Brand

Where is the line between pain and pleasure?

_____________________

Laura’s Longing by Jessica Brand
A story of love and exploration. Laura is the quintessential all American small town girl, the vivacious cheerleader who is saving herself for the love of her life. Unfortunately the love of her life is the bad boy in town. Young love being what it is, she finally decides he’s the one to make her a woman and she develops a plan for her fairytale outcome. Unfortunately her fairytale turns into a horror story when she finds her beau, in flagrante delicto with another girl bent over the kitchen table. 

In her anger and her grief she seeks solace from her closest girlfriend and after purging some of her pent up lust in the arms of her friend she decides the town is not big enough for all of them and moves to the city to make a new life. Accepting an offer of accommodation in Denver from a mysterious woman a few years older than herself, Laura soon discovers activities taking place in her host’s basement studio that defy Laura’s comprehension. Initially shocked at what she witnesses, her shock turns to arousal as she watches erotic games involving activities she had no idea were possible. 

Determined to explore further, she convinces her host introduce her to this strange world of bondage and discipline where the lines between pain and pleasure are blurred, where being spanked could be erotic or agonizing, depending on one’s perspective. Her first experience convinces her she needs more and after unexpectedly meeting a new love, sets about introducing him to the BDSM netherworld. Ensuring he learns from experience, Laura is finally satisfied as their love is consummated in the erotic confines of her housemate’s dungeon.

It is not for the faint hearted as it takes the reader into the highly erotic world of consensual BDSM.

Picking up one of the ankle cuffs, she studied it closely. It was multi-layered brown leather with a shiny chrome D-ring on one side and large chrome buckle on the other. Bending over, she closed the cuff around her ankle, surprised at how comfortable it felt without even buckling it up. Straightening up to return it to its place on the bed, her hand slipped inside her panties, confirming what she already knew. Her body was ready but she was still unsure about her mind. She had two and a half hours to decide.

Taking the collar in her hand, she held it up against her neck. The skin of her neck was particularly sensitive and she had always loved it when Brandon had kissed and gently nibbled it, not that he did it as often as she would have liked. As the leather touched her skin it caused a little shiver to pass through her and she wrapped it around her completely, doing up the buckle just tight enough to be comfortable. Looking at herself in the mirror, she smiled at her reflection, thinking the collar made her look like an innocent little puppy. As she was considering the potential for the evening she wondered whether she was really as innocent as she liked to think. 

Switching her focus to the shiny steel handcuffs, she reached down and carefully picked them up, surprised at how heavy they felt. She played with the two halves, swinging one around to see how it slotted into the locking mechanism. She had never handled handcuffs before and they scared her and fascinated her in equal measure, representing helplessness and control. Hearing a click, she realized she had accidently locked one of the cuffs. "Shit. No," she said, panicked. Yet, she felt a little gush inside her panties she knew was not from her excitement, but fear. "No, no, no," she repeated as she tried desperately to pull the cuff open. 

Realizing her efforts were fruitless, she tried to slip her hand through the locked cuff but found that, as dainty as her hands were, it would not fit through the hole. Tears sprung to her eyes as she slumped down on the bed in utter frustration, trying to work out what to do. She had just failed her first test and she was shattered. Noah's note made it quite clear. She was to be very careful with the handcuffs and if she didn't follow his instructions, he would not see her. As she sat there in despair, a thought struck her.

Racing to the bathroom, she grabbed a hairpin. People always used hairpins to pick locks in the movies! It looked easy enough. Surely she would be able to unlock the cuff and save her evening. Slipping the end of the pin into the lock, she began moving it around with no real idea of what she was doing. Sliding it and twisting it this way at that in the forlorn hope that the lock would release, she became increasingly frustrated when nothing happened. Finally she threw the hairpin to one side and desperately pulled on the unrelenting cuff. "Aaarrrgghh," she squealed as her anger got the better of her.

--------------------------------------------

Jessica Brand is a pseudonym for a writer based in Sydney, Australia. She has a number of books published under different pen names, all of them containing elements of BDSM, power and control. Much of what she writes about comes from her experience over many years, both as a Dominant and as a submissive and as her stories unfold you will find yourself "living" the scene.


If power and sexual control are not your thing, it might be better to seek your reading enjoyment elsewhere.

We asked Jessica:

How did you become a writer? 


I have harbored an urge to be a writer for many years, figuring I could write as well as many published authors but never having the wherewithal to actually see a story through to completion. When I finally did, I found that people actually liked it and I have continued ever since.


How many books have you written? 


Are they all spanking fiction? I now have six published books under two pseudonyms – Jessica Brand and R. R. Greaves. They all have elements of spanking in them but they tend to be more into BDSM, power and control and are quite explicit.


Are you okay in your kink? 


I embrace my kink. After keeping it repressed for many years, I realized that you only live once. Just about everyone has fantasies and many of them are about things we would not normally share with family and friends. What goes on between two consenting adults is nobody else’s business and hence the biggest decision should revolve around whether one wants to act out their fantasy or whether they want to keep it in their mind. Once that decision has been made, it’s easy.



Where do you find inspiration for your stories? When you write, do you ever model any characters after actual people? 


My inspiration comes from my own fantasies and experiences then I weave them into a story that, hopefully people can relate to. I want people to read my stories and be able to imagine themselves in the thick of the action – either as the dominant character or as the submissive. Some but not all of my characters are modelled on real people I’ve met and played with.

Hunter's Ridge Books 1-3 and Blessed Beginnings

To celebrate the latest release of the "Hunter's Ridge" series, "Blessed Beginnings", we've put together a box set of books 1-3 that is only available for a very limited time... & for less than half price!  Purchased separately, books 1-3 would cost $14.97, but you can now purchase the collection for $6.99.

Now is the perfect time to start this wonderful series by getting books 1-3 at a deep discount...& book 4 is already available!



Hunter's Ridge Books 1-3 by Maggie Ryan

Lucy's Journey Home, Book 1

Maggie Ryan, the Queen of Victorian Age-Play, has created another best-selling hit. 

Leaving her twin sister Louisa and her husband, Lord Edward Wintercrest behind, Lucy knows that while she is sad, it is only right that she follow her husband. Every aspect of traveling by train fascinates her.

While her husband loves seeing her so excited, he has no intention of allowing her to forget his rules of behavior or the vows she spoke less than a week before. Lucy's lessons continue as she adapts to the dual roles she has accepted as both his bride and his little girl.

Dominance and submission has never been more sensually erotic than by Ms. Ryan's talented pen.

Homecoming, Book 2

Lucy is both excited and terrified as their carriage draws them ever closer to Hunter's Ridge where she will finally meet Lucas' family. Her nerves are nearly shattered until her husband promises that he will always be there, always protect her, and always love her. She has learned so much at his hands during their short marriage as he patiently teaches her what he expects both from his wife and from his special Little one.

This is the second book in the series, Hunter's Ridge. It is a Victorian based age-play novel that contains discipline as well as explicit sexual scenes. If harsh discipline, age-play elements including anal play, or sexual acts offend you, please do not purchase this book. If you enjoy reading about the intense love and discoveries of possibilities of two people as they continue their journeys together, I hope my book brings you pleasure.

Reunion, Book 3

In this, the third book of the best-selling Hunter's Ridge series, twin sisters, Louisa and Lucy, are looking forward to reuniting after several months apart. Though they correspond regularly, letters are nothing compared to being together, sharing their lives, and whispering their secrets to one another.

Anticipation has caused both to be naughtier than usual - but their husbands, who are very strict Papas, have no hesitation in reminding them what happens when their Little brides test the rules.

Once again, Maggie Ryan, combines love, friendship, humor, and delicious scenes of discipline and lust to tell a story that is as heartwarming as it is sexy.

Meanwhile, not one but three men are vying to capture the heart of the vivacious youngest Lady Huntington. Ettie discovers that courtship is thrilling, yet she also learns that there is more than simply love to consider. She knows she needs to feel adored, but can any one of the three make her feel truly cherished?

Betrayed By Blood Courtesan Slave Trade Book 2 Allison West

Courtesan Slave Trade Book 2
Allison West

______________________


http://www.amazon.com/Betrayed-Blood-Courtesan-Slave-Trade-ebook/dp/B0161X46AY/ref=asap_bc?ie=UTF8
When Aaron discovers his father, King Gideon, and brother, Prince August, are still alive and a verdict for treason to come within a few days, Aaron has no choice but to infiltrate the palace, no matter the cost. Forced to align himself with the rebel leader Rhys, Aaron and Lorelei must return to the palace to seek justice and protect the crumbling nation of Brayleigh. Will she be loved by all who know of her as the murderess or feared for her deadly sins? 

Unwilling to let Rhys take command of the country, Aaron will have to become the prince he was destined to be and rise in power to overthrow the new regime. Will Aaron be able to stop Rhys from his rise of power and end the slave trade once and for all? Will Lorelei find herself assimilated as part of the rebel movement or an enemy of the people? 

Betrayed by Blood is the riveting conclusion to the Courtesan Slave Trade series and a spin-off of the Gem Apocalypse series.


______________________

Rhys glanced from Lorelei to Aaron. “The former king of Brayleigh will be put on trial, along with his son, August. I want the palace presentable and the guillotine ready should the verdict be guilty.”

Aaron swallowed the lump in his throat. “Don’t you find that a tad bit harsh?” He no longer could sit quietly and listen to such talk of his father and brother being executed. Being at his former home, it made the pain all too real.

“Harsh?” Rhys said and laughed. “I find your father’s advances toward the women of Brayleigh harsh. Taking their virginity, selling them to the highest bidder. Do you not see how better a world we’ll have without him in it?”

“You have his crown and the power that goes with it,” Aaron said, reminding Rhys that he’d won. He had the country in the palm of his hand. Why did he need to go on and execute its former leader? Could he not be exiled instead? There was plenty of land abandoned after the Gem Apocalypse.

Rhys nodded. “I do, but it’s not enough. I need the people to know that I want what’s in their best interest. I’m not angling for taking over or even suggesting a leader for our nation. I’d much rather see a free world without boundaries and walls keeping us apart. Where we’re all equal and no one is hunted and murdered for having different color eyes than a sapphire.”

My Sassy Settler

My Sassy Settler 



http://www.amazon.com/My-Sassy-Settler-Willamette-Wives/dp/1682590682/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1448898404&sr=8-1&keywords=My+sassy+settlerWhat should have been a wonderful new adventure for newlyweds Wyatt and Agatha Wilcox, was anything but. Wyatt's dreams of building a new life with the girl he'd met and wed while traveling on the Oregon Trail had turned into a nightmare. He loved his wife dearly but had no idea how to reach her.

Agatha knew she wasn't the wife that Wyatt had dreamed of. Despite her deep love for this man, she couldn't seem to cast aside all words and damnation she'd heard from her step-father for the past year. Her hope that she'd find a fresh start as Wyatt's wife and a true home on the ranch they were helping to build was overshadowed by the fact that her Ma was no longer with her and her knowledge that she was not the pure and innocent woman that Wyatt deserved. She knew she was a sinner, a woman too weak and too selfish to let the man she loved go free.

Dangers in this newly settled land weren't limited to the bears and wild cats that roamed the forests and mountains of the Willamette Valley. The deep cold of winter was coming and the ranch's inhabitants needed to prepare. It was with the help of friends, their partners in building The Double R Ranch, affectionately known as the Rose Ranch to its founders, that things come to a head and the first steps toward a new life are taken. Would the couple find their way past the hatred spewed by a self-proclaimed preacher to find that together they had the strength and the love to build the lives they each had envisioned and then share that life together.

With patience and love would Agatha learn to trust that this man would never let her down? Her sassy spirit won his heart, would his love win her soul?

My Sassy Settler is the second book in the Willamette Wives series, it also continues the story of Anna and Richard, Charity and James, and other characters first introduced in the best-selling book, His Passionate Pioneer.

Disclaimer: This book contains the spanking of adult women and explicit sexual scenes including anal play. If these offend you, please don't purchase this book.

"Are you planning on staying there all day?"
Her husband's question had come from above her and had her looking up. His height made it easy for him to simply look over the bales and peer down at her. When she didn't immediately answer, he sighed.
"Agatha, hiding doesn't solve anything. When you are ready to talk, I'll be sitting right here." He disappeared but she felt the hay at her back move and understood that he was sitting, his back pressing against the hay on the opposite side of where she was leaning. The only sounds in the barn were the shuffling of the animals in their stalls.
Several minutes passed before she spoke. "I'm sorry."
"So am I."
Her heart ached. She'd been waiting for this moment for weeks. Though she wasn't strong enough to let him go, she'd never doubted that one day he'd find the strength to set her aside. After all, she'd done nothing but push him away since their wedding day.
"I'll-I'll go," she whispered.
"Aggy, the only place you will be going is across my knees if you don't get it through your thick skull that I love you."
"Y-you do?"
"Oh, for God's sake!" She felt the hay shift at her back. Before she could react, he had moved, lifted her off her feet and stepped back around the stack. In one fluid movement, he sank to sit on the hay bale she'd caused to fall onto the floor, adjusted her so that she was straddling his lap and cupped her chin in his fingers, forcing her head to tilt back.
"Open your eyes and look at me." The silence drew out until she opened her eyes and focused on him. "If you don't hear another word I say, hear this. I loved you the moment I held you in my arms at that dance. I've loved you every moment since and, young lady, I will love you until the day I die."
"I don't want you to die!" She burst into tears, the force of her sobs making it difficult to draw breath, but she had to make him understand. "I-I deserve to die… I'm the ba-bad one. You-you are go-good. I-I begged God to-to take… take me… but he-he knows I-I'm a-a liar and, and…"
Wyatt dropped her chin to wrap his arms around her and pulled her to his chest. One hand began to stroke up and down her back. "Shhh, oh, Aggy, shhh. No one is going to die." When she attempted to push away to explain, he simply held her tighter. "Shhh, I promise everything is going to be just fine."

Maggie Ryan


Author for Blushing Books.  I write both contemporary erotica and historical spanking romances.  I enjoy writing about characters that enjoy the provocative D/S lifestyle of today’s times as well as taking a step back into the past to write stories that take place in the Victorian era with age-play as a theme. 
I live in the great Lone Star state with my wonderful husband.  I have always loved reading.  Growing up in a family with four children, it was difficult finding a place to be alone.  I was probably one of the squeakiest clean girls on the planet as I would spend hours in the tub so I could read without being bothered.  It wasn’t long before I began to make up my own endings to the books I was reading.  From there, it just seemed natural to begin writing my own stories.
I never try to restrict myself to any one genre because there are just too many delicious possibilities out there and inside my head.  I admit to being somewhat of a romantic though as my stories always must have a great deal of love, passion, corporal discipline and, of course, great, mind-blowing sex.  I want my readers to be able to see, hear, feel and know the characters that I’m creating as well as I do when I bring them to life and transfer their stories to paper.  I want my women to be strong of character but also strong enough to know that submission given in love and trust to your partner does not make you weaker, it makes you far stronger. I want my men to be sexy, strong, demanding alpha males who know how to take what they want while acknowledging it is a gift they have been blessed with by the women that have chosen to submit to them.  I want there to be no doubt that they truly would die for the other no matter how others might view their relationship.
