Dark Chocolate and Strawberries by Daryl Devore

This week in the Never Ending Blog Tour, we have Daryl Devore with this fairy tale story.

What’s a naughty fairy tale like Red Riding Hood without Red, the huntsman, grandma and especially, the big bad wolf?

Esmerelda ‘Red’ Hood is summoned to her mother’s executive suite only to learn her sweet granny is headed for a romantic cruise with a gigolo. Horrified, Red races off to save her grandma before it’s too late.

On board, Red meets Andrew Woodsman and Willem Olf. One a cutie with the biggest puppy eyes and the other a dark, sophisticated predator. Her grandmother’s warning rings in Red’s ear “Never trust a wolf in sheep’s clothing.”

Even with the warning, Red has trouble choosing which man could be the big bad wolf and which could be her happily ever after.

Every good fairy tale begins with once upon a time. This one begins with once upon a dream.

“Oh, that feels so good.” She ran her fingers through his hair.

He reached his hands up to her shoulders and trickled his fingertips to her hips. His strong fingers kneaded her breasts. Her erect, pink nipples rubbed against his rough hands each butt cheek and dug his fingers into her flesh.

She slid her fingers along his chest and flicked his nipples. “You make me feel so hot.”

Applying tender kisses on her stomach, he moved from her navel to her thigh. He pressed a hand on each inner thigh, urging her to spread her legs. A thrill tingled in her as he licked his lips.

“Like what you see?” She wiggled her bottom.

A smile crossed his face as he lowered his head between her legs. Using small nips and kisses, he traced a path along her thigh and stopped when his lips brushed the edge of her bush. Licking her slit, he caressed the inside of her thigh with the tips of his fingers. When his hand reached her pussy, his finger teased her wetness.

“Don’t stop!” She entangled her fingers in his hair.

His finger slid deep into her as his tongue neared her clit. “Baby, I’m gonna fuck you until you beg for…”

…and oil prices soared as the cost of a barrel of crude rode to an all-time record…

****

“Oh gawd,” moaned Red, as she grabbed a pillow to cover her ears. “It can’t be morning.”

…lost three to two. The Chicago Blackhawks traded right winger, Steve…

From under the pillow, she forced one eye to open. The digital alarm clock showed 6:07.

…snow and blowing snow and near record cold temperatures…

“I don’t wanna get up.” Her left hand reached out from under the warm blankets and slapped at the snooze button. Closing her eyes, she sighed and settled back into sleep. “Can I just go back to my dream?”

…all roads leading into the downtown core are slow and there are two major accidents on Michigan Avenue. Delays and cancellations at O’Hare International….

Again, her left hand thrust out from under the blankets and pressed the snooze button. No sooner had she settled back under the covers, the annoying beep-beep-beep of the backup clock sounded.

Red sighed and threw back the covers. A blast of cool air chilled her arms. There was only one way to shut off this alarm – get out of bed, walk across the room and smack the damn button.

Read where Anders and Aurelie first met in my #1 bestseller,
The Viking’s Conquest.

Warrior Mine by Pandora Sparks

PRE-ORDER SALE:

Until release day, WARRIOR MINE is available for the pre-order special of 99¢! 

Warrior Mine promo1

She is the perfect combination of princess and warrior.

Scott Nielsen and Jackie Walker.
Their attraction is instant from the moment they meet.
But he’s Dominant.  And no way is she submissive.
Is it a missed connection?  Or a divine appointment?

Scott Nielsen is ready for change.  He’s walked away from his career as a wilderness counselor, planning to start his own outdoor survival school.  He looks up his old friend and former colleague Blake Walker, intent on leasing space at Blake’s family’s remote wilderness guest lodge.  That’s where he meets Blake’s sister Jackie, who runs the lodge with her brother’s help.  Her strength and independence intrigue Scott.  A single mom, Jackie has no intention of being anyone’s submissive.

In his personal life, Scott is tired of casual sex in the BDSM club scene.  Envious watching his buddy Blake fall head over heels for his own submissive, Scott thinks he might be ready to take the plunge himself.  As he and Jackie spend time together, he’s enchanted with her inner Warrior Princess.  But Jackie’s been burned before.  And she has two children who are her priority, not to mention the business to run.   As independent as she is, she can’t see relinquishing her power to a man, not even one she’s falling for.

Scott’s heart aches at the idea of not having Jackie in his life.  Can she take another chance on love, or will she insist on ignoring her submissive soul?

If you enjoyed LOST & BOUND, you’ll love this spin-off stand-alone story.

Excerpt:

Enjoying the view, she watched as he walked to the bed and reached beneath it, removing a Kink Ink bag.  “I went shopping myself today while I was in town.”  His bag was larger than the ones she and Amy had returned with.

From the bag, he withdrew a mass of black straps and silver chain.  Arching an eyebrow dramatically, he carried the device toward her, stopping beneath the massive log that served as the center beam of the cabin.  Belatedly, Jackie noticed a heavy black ring attached to the beam.  Reaching up, Scott secured a thick steel chain to the ring overhead.  From the chain hung a curved black bar, with black straps in various lengths that dangled beneath.

Scott crooked a finger.  “Come.”

Ignoring the butterflies performing dive bombs in her stomach, Jackie slowly padded toward him.

“Do you know what this is?”

She chewed her lower lip.  “I have a pretty good idea.”

“And?”

Jackie flushed crimson.  “It’s a sex swing?”  She eyed the device curiously.  Two padded straps connected the ends of the curved overhead bar, one longer than the other.  Two short straps with cuffs at the ends hung suspended from a chain at the center of the bar.  And at either end of the bar hung a longer strap with cuffs at the end, presumably for ankles.

He nodded.  “I thought,” with his hands on her hips, he turned her around, “we might try something interesting.”  He moved the lower strap behind her thighs.   “Sit, Princess.”

Heart pounding, Jackie did as she was told, grasping onto the straps that hung down.  Scott knelt, fastening a padded black cuff around each of her ankles, spreading her wide.  Then he moved the shorter padded strap behind her shoulder blades.  “Now lean back, Princess.  I’ve got you.”

Shakily, she lay back against the thickly padded strap, gripping the side straps for dear life.  With a smirk, Scott peeled her right hand off the strap, kissing it lightly before raising it to the cuffs overhead.  He followed suit with her left hand.

When she was completely fastened in, he gave her a little push and stepped back to admire his handiwork.

“Whoa,” Jackie gasped as she swung around in a slow circle.

Scott grinned.  “How does it feel to be completely under my control?”

Jackie tried unsuccessfully to suppress a nervous giggle.  “It’s not so bad.”

“Not so bad?  I’d rather it was oh, so good.”

As she swung around, she lost sight of him.  When he came back into view, he was holding a black satin blindfold.

“Tonight, Princess, is all about sensations.  We’re going to cover your eyes, so you can concentrate on what you feel.”

He stepped toward her and stopped suddenly.  “Did you come up with your own safe words?”

Her eyes widened.  “Oh.  Yes.  I did.”  She looked to him, feeling suddenly sheepish.  Maybe we should just go with the original ones, she worried.

He raised an eyebrow, waiting for her to elaborate.

“Well,” she gestured with a shoulder, causing the swing to spin to the left, “I thought I’d use earth, water, and fire.”

Scott pursed his lips in amusement.  “Earth, water, and fire.  What about air?”

As she spun, she shrugged.  “Well, I only needed three, so…”

Earth is the same as green?”

Jackie nodded.  “And water is like yellow, and obviously fire is red.”

“Obviously,” he smirked.  “Alright, I’m about to blindfold you.  Give me feedback.”

“Earth.”  She watched him carefully.

“Earth it is.”  He leaned down and kissed her tenderly before he slid the black satin mask into place.

The next time he spoke, he sounded further away.  “If at any time you feel uncomfortable, use your safe words.”  She felt a swish of air, as though he’d moved by her.

“I considered a ball gag,” his voice came from in front of her, “but I need to be sure I can read your body language before we take away your voice.”

Strong hands gently gripped her lower calves as he trailed kissed up the inside of her right leg, his facial hair prickling in a maddeningly sensual way.  When he reached the place where her thigh joined her body, he skipped her needy place to travel back down her left leg.

Jackie groaned with disappointment, and she felt the vibration of his chuckle against her inner thigh.  “All in good time, Princess.  The King will feast, I promise.”

When he’d finished his travels, he released her, sending her spinning in a slow, dizzying circle.  With the blindfold, Jackie had no sense of up or down, left or right.  She felt as though she were floating.

Then she heard a soft buzzing sound, followed by Scott’s sexy chuckle.  “Oh, this is a naughty toy.  Just what did you get up to with this?”

Mortified, Jackie was at once glad for the blindfold, and sorry she wasn’t gagged.  “I, um…used it.”

He whispered into her ear.  “Yes, but how?”

Oh. My. God.  “I pressed it against myself.”

“And where exactly did you press it?”

Jackie cleared her throat.  “I pressed it against my pussy.”

“Your pussy.  This glorious pussy right here?”

She yelped as he unexpectedly touched the vibrator to her sex.  “Yes.”

She felt him stiffen.  “Yes, what?”

“Oh!  Yes, Sire.”

He applied an open-handed pop to her pussy, and she yelped again.  “How quickly we forget.  Perhaps we should stop and allow you to consider the error of your ways.”

Jackie’s mind flitted to what Amy had said about orgasm denial, and she panicked at the thought of not being allowed to come during this play session.  “Um, no, Sire, really, it was merely an oversight on my part, I’m so very sorry, please, I didn’t mean it, I just—”

Scott laughed out loud.  “You’ve been talking to Amy, I see.”  He whispered, closer now.  “Don’t worry Princess.  I plan to wear you out tonight.”

Zoe gets his hand #SatSpanks #NewRelease

#SatSpanks

Thank goodness it is FINALLY the weekend! I have been so busy with the kids being home, trying to write, and find time to edit that I am ready for the weekend. My new release, Zoe’s Impetus in the N.E.R.D anthology, is doing amazingly well and I have just the perfect scene for this #SatSpanks entry.  If you haven’t picked it up, do so HERE before Monday because the price is only 99 cents through the weekend!


There’s a small chuckle from over me, and then all at once his palm leaves my jeans briefly, before it comes crashing back down against me. I think I gasp at the impact, my mind registering the pain, although I barely care.

He’s spanking me again, giving me what I want, and what I need, and for the longest time, that’s all I can think about. I stop fighting, my body slumping over his long limbs as the swats fall over me, his palm landing over and over again.

I groan as the pain builds, the heat radiating from my spanked behind and pooling between my legs. Christ it hurts, but I love it, and I wonder how I’ll ever move forward without this discipline in my life. The swats cease all at once, and his large palm comes to rest over my smarting bottom.

“Professor, please!” I wail, hating how desperate I feel at this moment. I don’t know what I’m calling for. Perhaps I want more of the pain, or maybe, I’m just appalled at myself for needing it.

“What is it, Zoe?” he asks, his tone raspy as he answers.

“Why have you stopped?” I feel my face flame a deeper shade of red at the question, but the words are out before the logical part of my brain can stop them. He laughs from over the top of me, and I tense at the sound.

“You’re enjoying this rather more than I expected,” he chuckles. “Usually a few hard swats will inspire some more dedication on the part of the reader, but with you, it seems not to be the case…” There’s a pause, and silence falls over the space. The energy within me furls as I wait for him to continue.

“Let me think,” he goes on. “Perhaps I’ll need to deliver a bare-bottom spanking to really get your attention, Zoe?”

#SatSpanks

The preorder for Zoe’s Impetus is now LIVE and is released on 10 August.  I can’t wait for you to get your hands on it, so how about another excerpt of it for this #SatSpanks edition of spanking fun?

That’s it. The words are out there, and all at once the atmosphere shifts between us once again. With my consent, his hand slips from my face and he pats the trousers of his suit. “Come then,” he instructs me. “Down over my lap with your book.”

I gaze down at the place he had indicated my head giddy with the weight of his expectations. Have I really just agreed to do this, I wonder? But I know I have, and worse, I know I want it.

Moving gingerly, I shift to his side, gripping the book in my right hand. With one final deep breath, I bend, lowering myself down over the Professor’s lap. Hanging over the knees of your biology Professor turns out to be the most peculiar experience. It’s uncomfortable to say the least, yet all at once my arousal spikes and I squirm over his lap. His hand rests on the back of my jean-covered thigh, making me settle at once. There’s nothing sexual about the act, but it’s innately intimate, and all of a sudden, pulling air in and out of my mouth becomes a challenge.

“Start reading, Zoe.” The sound of Professor Neil’s voice startles me, and I’m panting as I fumble with the pages.

“Yes, sir,” I begin, trying to focus on the initial paragraph, but in my flustered state, I can barely even get the words out. “Cell biology.” I pause, feeling his hand shift at the back of my leg. “Cell biology is an understanding of how cells have evolved, which underpins our understanding of how they were formed and have changed in response to the environment, and how they function.”

I’m racing through the first few lines, my brain reading the words, but the whole time all I can think about is his hand trailing a line down towards my knees. It’s sensual and intense, but more than that it’s scintillating. I’m reading on his command, and the thought makes me hotter and wetter than I’ve ever known.

NERD 2

Did you read my excerpt?  

“Is there a problem, Miss Kellam?” He asks, spinning in his seat to face me in a heartbeat.

Oh crap. He’s caught me looking at him when I’m supposed to be reading! I know I’m flushing as I answer. “I, er, no… I’m fine, thank you, Professor.”

My face is flaming with embarrassment, and I imagine just how red my blush is as I conclude, wishing that the floor will open up and swallow me completely.

He regards me with a wry smile, the look of his face making me even hotter. “I am pleased to hear it,” he tells me. “I assume you don’t need my help to actually read the books?”

His tone has softened, but I barely even register it. Something about his smile has mesmerised me, and for the longest time I just sit watching him, despite the ardent protests coming from my brain. Get a grip, Zoe, it chastises me. This is Professor Neil, for fuck’s sake, not some Hollywood action hero, and yet, there’s no getting past it, my botany professor is making me hornier than I have felt for a long time.

“Miss Kellam?” he says again, rising from his seat. “Do you need help?”

I fluster as he approaches. “Yes, er—I mean, no, sir,” I reply, turning to face the book again, although I can still make him out in my peripheral vision.

Neil paces towards me, weaving his way past piles of books to where I am sitting. “Are you sure?” he asks, his hand resting against the back of my chair. “You do seem rather agitated.”

I glance up at his towering figure, noting that dark brow arching as he appraises me, and I swear I lose my breath. “I…” I hesitate, trying desperately to get a handle on myself. “I’m just having trouble focusing on the book, sir.”

“Really?” he enquires, smirking at my response. “Perhaps this is the problem, Miss Kellam. It seems you need assistance focusing on the task at hand.”

He edges closer to me, a waft of his provocative cologne washing over my face at his proximity. The spicy, earthy scent makes me hot and heady.

“It might surprise you to know, that when I’m not researching the cell structure of plants, I’ve developed my own way of helping young ladies to focus.” He’s smiling as he speaks, the timbre of his voice garnering my attention even before his words register.

I blink up at him, my heart pounding as I catch my breath. I have no idea what the professor means, but something about his message speaks to my core, goading me in the most insanely erotic way.

“Wh-what way, sir?” I ask, my own voice trembling with some level of excited apprehension.

His face relaxes, and he takes a step backwards. “I’m not sure you’re ready to know,” he replies, shaking his head as though he is musing on his own private conundrum.

The retreat fills me with urgency, and I watch as Neil turns away from me, facing the small window which looks out to the open fields. All of a sudden, my greatest need is to capture his attention again, to not let him get away.

“Professor!” I cry out, my tone demanding. “I am ready… please!”

I’m on my feet, but somehow, I can’t make them move forward. Instead, I stand, breathless, watching him eye the expanse of window. Slowly, ever so slowly, as though he’s intentionally torturing me, he turns, and his steely blue gaze finds me at once.

“You’re sure?” he asks, moving back towards me. “Because what I propose is not conventional. It doesn’t conform to university procedures, and if you agree, it will have to remain between just the two of us.”
