“Come in,” a deep voice said. The tone caused a shiver to run up Rosa’s spine – this man had some sort of incredible magnetism that made every employee want to please him. Of course, the fact that there were ways for the Master of the Masters to encourage that desire helped a great deal.

Marshall looked up from his desk where he had been going over the last of the forms needed before they were placed into files. Seeing Rosa, he smiled. “I was just wondering where your papers were. I expected them before now.”

“Um, yes…I mean, yes, Sir,” Rosa stammered, her face beginning to heat letting her know that the blush that always colored her face when she felt embarrassed or guilty was well on its way to let her boss know something was up. Deciding that attempting to laugh off her concerns was not only not in her best interest, but would definitely not please a man that insisted on honesty, she forced herself to step to the desk and meet his eyes. “I’m sorry. I know I’m late in turning them in. I really don’t have an excuse and I apologize for making you worry. I just…well, I just had…

“Second thoughts?” he suggested, his tone soft. "Rosa, I hope you know that I think you are an excellent employee. Honey, I've had years of experience working with a wonderfully diverse group of individuals and feel I can read a person accurately. I'm concerned that I'm not seeing the normally cheerful and excited Rosa. Let's see if we can work out why you seem to be so uneasy." He pointed to the chair in front of his desk. “Sit down, Rosa. Would you care for some water?”

Rosa sank into the chair, shaking her head. “Um, no…no thank you. I just want coffee. I mean, I need to give these to you and then Bess is going to…we’re going to get coffee.”

Marshall nodded, sat back in his chair and steepled his fingers under his chin. “That’s fine, Rosa, but I’d really like you to relax and just talk to me.”

Rosa discovered that Marshall’s magic extended to just listening. She began slowly but as she admitted her fears, her words begin to flow. “I’m scared. I know that’s silly and I have comforted many a Little but I can’t help it. What if I’m terrible at being a Little? What if someone pays money for me and then is so disappointed, he’ll never want to come back to the Castle? What if I sell…oh God, just thinking of being sold blows my mind.” Her voice began to rise in pitch with her anxiety. “I don’t want Don to be disappointed. I liked him so much but if I don’t bring in enough or no one bids on me at all, I’ll feel like I’ve let him down. I don’t want to ruin everyone’s fun or…or your business.”

“Honey, you need to stop fretting so much,” Marshall said, bending forward. "You have my word that there is no need to worry about any of that - I promise you will make Don proud. How about we go over your form one last time to make sure you have everything just the way you want. You deserve to have the best experience you can.”

Rosa was surprised at his request but she nodded and laid the papers she had spent hours going through down on his desk. She felt her face heat again seeing how crumpled and twisted they appeared. Flattening them with her fingers, she mumbled another apology.

“That’s fine. We’ll go through them and I promise by the time they get put into your file, they will be as good as new. Shall we?”

They spent the next half-hour going through the pages. Marshall read each line and would not continue until she gave him a nod. When they reached the section of what she would enjoy during the time spent with whoever purchased her, she was smiling and even giggled a time or two when he made a comment about how she was sure to enjoy getting to choose clothing from their extensive wardrobe department and play on the playground.

“I’m sure you’ll enjoy the Big girl time you will receive as well,” Marshall said, noting that she had checked off almost nothing that she was not willing to participate in. Her choices told him a great deal. This young woman was definitely looking for an experience that would allow her to both regress into the carefree days of childhood as well as enjoy the sexual experiences a virile, loving young woman of twenty-six normally desired. “Now, we only need to make sure you’ve listed any hard limits and then we’re done.”

“Um, I wasn’t so sure about those,” Rosa admitted. “I haven’t done a lot – I mean, I don’t have that much experience. Some of them I don’t even know what they mean.”

“Well, it is vital that you understand them all.” Marshall knew that the possibilities offered were almost endless. The perfect thing about the Castle was that people were free to pick and choose which activities they were drawn to explore. Rosa had spent a year dealing with the clients that wanted to explore the ageplay dynamic, which did offer all sorts of scenarios dealing with discipline and even medical play, but it was now obvious that she truly had not explored the darker side of the castle that included the dungeon.

When Master Marshall announces the first Castle slave auction for charity at the end of the year, Wardrobe assistant Janice is intrigued. The thought of being sold to an unknown Dominant for three consecutive nights is both thrilling and terrifying.

Janice has been spanked plenty of times before, but there's one thing she's always wanted to experience; she's just never, not in two years of working there, been brave enough to ask for it.

The idea of auctioning off willing submissives to honor founding Master Don's memory causes a ripple of excitement throughout the resort, and everyone on staff is affected.

Winter is, after all, traditionally the quietest season of the year, and an event this unusual - and kinky - is bound to bring the guests flocking to the Castle.

Janice is conscientious enough to know that she'll be so flat out in the Wardrobe, helping the auction participants find the perfect costumes for the occasion, there's no way she'll be able to take part herself. That thought is both a relief and a disappointment. Still, unless she manages to get her increasingly disturbing fantasies about one of the resident Masters under control, she's worried she might go insane.

So when her best friend and colleague, Ellen, gives her an ultimatum, Janice must choose: Ask to play with the man who's been haunting her dreams at night, or put herself up for sale to the highest bidder.

Can Janice find the courage to fulfill her ultimate fantasy?

Includes 5 free preview chapters of the "Master's of the Castle" box set, "When the Gavel Falls", coming January 24th from Blushing Books. 

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?

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 fuck'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.
