THE LAST POST - OUT NOW #british #crime #thriller #detective #serialkiller #ku


Out today, THE LAST POST, book #2 in my popular IRONASH series. Don't miss it - but don't expect hearts and flowers, this story is a thrilling crime novel and there's a serial killer on the loose!





Justice will be served.

DI Shona Williams knew her cold case would be a hard one to crack, but she hadn't counted on it being so heart-wrenching. Resettling in Ironash has sent her emotions into overdrive, and vile, violent memories are flooding her brain.

But there's a distraction she must attend to. A crazed killer is on the loose at a music festival. Bodies are being mutilated, young people targeted. But why, and who the hell would do such a thing?

As the horrific case unfolds, the angel of death singing loud and clear, Shona mustn't lose her grip. She has to keep her cool, even when the ghost from her past appears.

And he's the Devil himself.

Saturday Spankings #SatSpanks #BDSM #historical #regency #romance #spanking


Welcome to Saturday Spankings, here's a few from my Regency spanking novel THE DUKE'S PET. Available on Amazon and if you're a KU subscriber, you can grab it from there!




Penniless and with no prospects for marriage, twenty-one-year-old orphan Jemima Cooper has no choice but to take any work she can find, no matter how shameful. When she is sent by her employer to serve the Duke of Hillcrest, however, Jemima is surprised to discover that the handsome, eccentric nobleman intends to make her not merely his concubine but also his pet.

Within moments of her arrival at the duke’s home, Jemima finds herself purring like a kitten as a collar is placed around her neck, and it isn’t long before she is blushing crimson and trying to hide her helpless arousal as she is led through her new master’s estate wearing nothing but a tail.

Though the duke soon proves more than ready to bare his beautiful pet’s bottom and spank her firmly for any disobedience, his stern dominance only increases Jemima’s need for him, and when he takes her in his arms and claims her properly it is better than she could have ever imagined. But will she always be just the duke’s pet, or will he one day make her his bride?


“Sorry will not right your wrong,” he snapped.
“But... it was an accident.”
“An accident that would not have happened had you been obedient.”
Suddenly her world turned upside down. He’d tipped her over his lap and pulled her close to his hard body. His thighs were thickly muscled and warm through his pants and his hold on her like a lock of steel.
“Hey, get off me!” She scrabbled for something to hold onto, found the floor, and yelped as a hard swat landed on her backside. The sensation was shocking and stung like a swarm of bees.
“I will not have my work interfered with.”
Another smack, then another and another.
She kicked and squirmed, trying to break free. It was mortifying to be spanked like a child would be... except no, this was much harder than anyone would strike a child, this had real male muscle behind it.
He held her tighter, drawing her against his torso. “Keep still.” His voice was a low growl. He sounded almost feral, animal-like, and the tone sent a shiver through her.
I am his. That is how it is here.
He’d bought her, he could do as he pleased whether that pained her, scared her, or demeaned her—or all three.
He didn’t let up, the loud thwacks of his palm connecting with her petticoat snapping around the room and up to the high ceiling.
“Oh... it hurts,” she cried when she felt she could take no more.
“It’s supposed to.” His voice still held that raw, masculine tone.
She clenched her fists as the spanking continued. At least her ass had some protection from her petticoat.
“This is in the goddamn way.” He gripped the waistband of her last piece of clothing and yanked it down, completely exposing her buttocks.
Her poor bottom was utterly at his mercy.
“Oh, please.” She tried to grab the petticoat and pull it up.
But it was no good. He was too big, strong, and determined and swatted her attempts away. “Stop that nonsense.”
For a moment he was still and she imagined him staring at the globes of her behind, no doubt red from his ministrations.
Humiliation had her skin crawling at the same time it was smarting. No man had ever laid eyes on her naked behind before.
Oh, why does he have to do this to me?
And then the punishment resumed. This time on naked, vulnerable skin. She attempted to protect her buttocks, sending the flat of her palm around in an effort to relieve some of the burning rain of slaps he was sending down.
He batted her hand away. “Little kitten, if I have to tell you again to keep still, this spanking will go on for three times as long as it should do. For it pains me not to teach you this lesson, only you.”
“Oh, Duke... please.”
“Be silent and take it.”

GABRIEL'S ANGEL - Perfect For Fans of #twilight and #thevampirediaries

My featured book today is Caroline MacCallum's supernatural, super romantic story GABRIEL'S ANGEL. I couldn't put it down, set in beautiful Wales it's perfect for teen readers and ticks all the boxes when it comes to action and angst.



When destiny gets it wrong, a lifetime of true love hangs in the balance.

Gabriel Black doesn’t want to believe he’s been dumped, but when the texts, calls and sweetly scented letters from his long-distance girlfriend, Elle Cassidy, suddenly stop, what else can he think?

Just as well his family is starting a new life away from the rat race, which means he can find out what’s going on face to face. But when things don’t go to plan, he finds it hard to keep his cool. And when life gets downright creepy, Gabe’s hot temper quickly burns through his veins as he struggles to comprehend his situation.

When the dust settles, he learns that a twist of fate means he’ll have to navigate a new, never-before-trodden path if he’s to have Elle at his side. It’s not easy, danger lurks in the shadows and he has to fight to protect what’s his. But Gabriel and Elle have allies, the ghostly glow of the moonlight is their friend, family love provides breathtaking strength, and together they can face the future no matter how many soul-takers try to tear them apart.

Saturday Spankings #SatSpanks #vampire #shifters #spanking #KU


Welcome to this week's Saturday Spankings. Today I have a swift few from BITE MARK which happens to be on special offer at just 0.99 for a few days only.

Then when you've fallen in love with hot vampires Aimery and Ryle you can grab the sequel, CLAW MARK which throws sexy shifters into the mix too. Enjoy!



I wanted to touch him everywhere at once too but didn’t know where to start. I settled for his buttocks. Like Aimery’s, his skin was as flawless as freshly glossed wood, and he too was cool, despite the heat of the fire and the blaze of our passion. 
I stabbed my tongue into his mouth. 
He gripped my right breast, squeezing until I squirmed with a mixture of want and pain. “Fuck, I can’t wait,” he gasped. “I need you now.” 
Suddenly I was flipped over to my stomach. Ryle tugged my arse high into the air and sent down a stinging slap on my right buttock. 
“Argh, fuck,” I cried, trying and failing to crawl from Ryle’s steely grip on my hips. “What are you doing?” 
“Go with it,” Aimery said, stooping, cupping my chin and tipping my face to his. “Let Ryle take you so high we have to stop you floating away.” 
Another stinging slap, this time on the opposite buttock. 
“Ouch! But—?” 
“Ah, yeah, all that beautiful blood is coming to the surface,” Ryle said. “You go pink so fast, Bea, it’s fucking gorgeous.” 
“Oh, but it hurts. You said you wouldn’t hurt me.” I tried again to escape but couldn’t. 
“It is good pain,” Aimery said, his lips pressed into the shell of my ear and his words full of earnestness. “Harness that heat and soon you will realize how incredible it will make you feel when mixed with everything else we have to offer.” 
I felt the air shift just before Ryle’s palm hit down again. “Argh.” I squeezed my eyes shut. 
“Don’t fight the pain, let it exist, let it make you fly,” Aimery murmured. “Trust us.” 
I bit down on my lip and tried not to cry out as another stinging slap landed squarely on my buttock. Searing heat flared across my arse to my pussy. My blood was rushing to the pained area then heading downward, swelling me more, arousing me further. 
Suddenly I got what Aimery meant when he’d said harness the pain. It was there, settling in my sopping channel, making every nerve feel even more alive. 
“That’s it, Bea,” Ryle said, “You’ve got the idea now.” He slid his fingers into my wet pussy—two or maybe three, knuckle-deep. 
The action was like a thunderbolt to my senses and I cried out in relief that I had something to clench. 
“Good, that’s better now, isn’t it?” Aimery’s voice was velvet-dark and overflowing with approval. 
I peeled open my eyes and watched as he drew up a high-backed chair, sat and crossed his legs. His entire concentration was on me getting slapped and hand-fucked by Ryle. Somehow that was as much a turn-on as what Ryle was doing, seeing Aimery like that, a slight smile on his face, his eyes wide and excited and his hands clasped in his lap. In his fine suit he looked the perfect gentleman, yet here he was watching his friend going for it with his woman.

BITE MARK ON SALE #paranormal #erotic #romance #99c #KU

FOR A FEW DAYS ONLY, BITE MARK IS 0.99



Grab yourself a copy of BITE MARK my steamy vampire menage a trois novel and be seduced by Aimery and Ryle in a shadowy, secret corner of old London Town!




Two vampires are in love with me. Another wants to kill me!

Life in London as a butcher girl was hard enough, but when my best friend Denny went missing it became miserable. Stumbling into the Worshipful Company of the Ancient Order while searching for him was like a breath of fresh air. Especially because handsome, sophisticated Aimery promised to help me.

But Aimery's friend Ryle wanted in on the action. My head was spinning, my body reacting to theirs whenever they were around. But I had questions: What was their obsession with my rare blood type? How did they always appear when I needed them? And how old were they?

Learning the truth brought new fears and delights. They could take me higher than I'd ever gone before, show me pleasures I'd never imagined and were prepared to kill to protect me. Being mortal had never been so much fun--or so deliciously dangerous.

Inside Scoop: This story ends on a cliffhanger--but don't worry, CLAW MARK is out now to quench your thirst!


Being married to two sexy vampires is as exciting as it is dangerous.

One minute I'm on top of the world, ecstasy my best friend, the next I'm running for my life. But it's okay with Aimery and Ryle at my side - they've sworn to love and protect me and keep me satisfied until I'm old and gray.

But when everything crashes down, literally, I can see no way out of the darkness - death my best option. Until, that is, two unusual men who live in the Canadian Rockies come bounding to my aid.

Gentle Caleb and prickly Isaac have secrets. They're full of passion, desire, love and lust and their isolated lives weaved with mystery. But I know what they are. I'm not completely naive. I'm also craving some serious satisfying, a distraction from my dilemma, and it seems these guys are up for the job.

Will I ever be normal again? Or will my life always be turbulent, terrifying and tempting beyond belief? Nothing is certain in a world of vampires and shifters.

Hot Menage a Trois

My two super hot novels THE GLASS KNOT and THE SILK TIE have gorgeous new covers. Check them out!



What's a girl to do when the guy she falls for is married to another man?

This is exactly what happened to me. Seeing Josh Kendal stroll out of the Mediterranean Sea wearing tight navy swim trunks and looking like a hot new James Bond was a truly delicious moment. Catching sight of his wedding ring was like a kick in the shin and meeting his gorgeous husband, phew, that was enough to make any girl groan at the cruel joke God was playing on her.

But all was not as it seemed, and when Josh needed a woman to sort out a 'delicate predicament' I was the one for the job - heck, what did I have to lose? Certainly not as much as him, literally.

Trouble is, emotions always get tangled, loyalties can't help but be divided and with a night of memories so hot they'd have the devil sweating, there was only one thing for it--it was time to get honest, fight for what I wanted despite society's constraints and open my heart to the people it needed most.

My husband has dark new desires.

Professional life in the City of London is tough going which is why my husband Gabe and I live by the motto work hard and play hard. So when something, or rather someone, comes along that changes how he wants to play I'm intrigued by our new game.

But there's always private sides to the ones you love, and in this case new thoughts and desires are stealing Gabe's dreams. It's not until I meet Brent--gorgeous and sophisticated yet soul-achingly alone--that I begin to understand the complex layers of Gabe's needs and exactly what I have to do.

But I'm not afraid. In a whirlwind of romance, fear and desire we open up to each other, testing the water for one weekend only. Or is it? Will we ever be the same again? Can Gabe and I survive our decision to let a third into our lives? Can Brent just walk away and, more importantly, will we let him?

Saturday Spankings #satspanks #outlander #spanking #erotic #romance


Welcome to Saturday Spankings, this week a treat for all you OUTLANDER fans - considerably kinkier though.




Moira’s heart was racing and her skin prickled with heat. Mortification was rushing through her veins. The indignity of being spread over the table by two men, neither of whom she was wed to, was too much.
And they want to spank me?
“Get the hell off. You have no right.” She tried to straighten, but Kendal had his hand set in the centre of her back, keeping her still and in place.
She knew it was Kendal because Reid was now on the opposite side of the table. He had his arms crossed, biceps bulging, and his attention was set firmly on her face.
He was set in to watch the show and would not be her rescuer; that much was clear.
And there was something even more shameful at having Kendal deliver a spanking. She barely knew him. “I will pay you back for this,” she said, twisting her head left and right.
“That’s not how it works, and you ken that.”
She was shifted forward, fast, as her skirts were drawn up.
“Oh, please... no.” Not her bare ass. Not that.
“You wear such thick skirts, Moira, you would not feel my hand over all of this fabric.”
Cool air washed over her naked buttocks.
“And is it my problem you chose not to wear panties?” He chuckled.
“Oh...” She stared up at Reid as Kendal rubbed over first her left then her right ass cheek. 
“I don’t think she wears panties very often,” Reid said. “For future reference, my friend.”
“Good to ken.”
“Future!” she shouted. “There is no future. I want you both to leave.”
“You will get your wish, after this.” A hard swat hit down on the buttock nearest to the side he stood.
She jerked forward and yelped.
“And what’s more,” Kendal said, pinning her harder to the table. “You’ll be coming with us.”
“What? I... ouch!”
Another spank landed hard. The opposite buttock this time. It had male muscle behind it and the heat spread fast.
“Keep still,” he said.
She hadn’t noticed she’d been scrabbling to escape.
“I mean it. Keep still or I’ll tie you down.”
He wouldn’t.
Another set of hard thwacks rained down, covering each ass cheek and the tops of her thighs. She arched her back, clawed the table top, and went up onto her toes.
“Ah, you’re already turning such a pretty rosy shade,” Kendal said, pausing and rubbing his palms over her buttocks again. “You take punishment well.”
“That’s it, no more.” She squeezed her eyes closed. They were moist and a tear trickled from her left one.
“You’re doing well, not long to go.”
The air moved from her right buttock seconds before his firm swat connected with her flesh. She jerked forward as white-hot heat shot through her skin.
“Keep still.” Reid was in front of her, holding her hands. “Don’t make him tie you down.”
“But... oh, it hurts.”
“That’s the idea. Next time you’ll think twice about disobeying us.”
“Next time it will be the birch,” Kendal said.

Thrilling New Genre! #detective #crime #killer #99c #ebook

Yes! I've branched out. Introducing my new thrilling detective trilogy - IRONASH. Check out the new pen-name too (so readers don't get confused and think there's romance...there isn't!)




I had a busy few months before Christmas, head buried in the laptop every day I wrote the entire IRONASH trilogy. I wanted readers to be able to know all books would be readily available (they'll all be released in February) as there is one big story that covers all three novels as well as individual stories within each title.

The heroine is a kick-ass British detective and has a hunk of a partner (think Luther!) - though he's not all he appears. Ironash is a fictional town in central England and I adored writing every book, especially (and I don't know what this says about me!) getting into the minds of killers.



Book #1 SIN, REPENT, REPEAT has just hit the shelves at the bargain price of 0.99
Grab a copy - if you dare - and take a trip to IRONASH, not quite the sleepy English town everyone thinks it is!


Back Cover Information for SIN, REPENT, REPEAT

Revenge is best served cold.

When Shona Williams returns to her hometown, Ironash, as an experienced DI, she has scores to settle. Justice will be delivered. What they did to her was evil.

Trouble is, she’s been thrown into the middle of a serial killer’s spree. Barely catching a breath between murders, he’s rampant, merciless, twisted, and preys on the weak.

Will her new partner, Earle Montaque, be a hindrance or a help? Will she have time to work on her very personal case? And will the murderer slip up so they can swoop in?

January - The Perfect Month For A Threesome


January is always such a grey month, not helped by battling to stick to all of those New Year resolutions. So to add some Technicolour and light relief into your life, let me showcase LONDON MENAGE, a set of three devilishly sexy novels (MMF, MFM, MMF) that are sure to heat you up to boiling point on a cold day!


Click on the covers to be taken to Amazon, it doesn't matter what order you read them in as they are only very loosely linked by the heroines being friends.
