Brent and Char's new update novella, Knowing What She Needs, will be available next Sunday, February 1st. (There are plenty of snippets here on my blog for the past couple SatSpanks and WIPItUp posts). As such, I gave you a snippet from Finding Their Bliss last week for Backlist Monday. This week, I'm giving you a snippet about them from another of my Corbin's Bend novellas: Chemistry of Attraction. This snippet is from Dina's point of view as her and Brandon go to an end-of-summer party.


“Brandon! Dina! About time you made it!” Even above the loud laughter, Benjamin’s voice carried and they walked over to him.

“I see you have more than enough food,” Brandon teased him.

“We’re military men. Of course we have more than enough food.” Benjamin turned and winked at her. “This Marine treating you right?”

“More than right,” she assured him.

This was their first time out amongst the community since she had moved in with him and at Brandon’s request and pleading eyes, she wore a bikini under tiny shorts. As such, her ink was clearly viewable. As proud of her tattoo as she was, Dina wasn’t sure how others would react to it.

“Damn, Brandon,” Brent said, walking up to them. The head of the Housing Board was an imposing man and so far Dina found it difficult to speak in his presence. How his girlfriend Char could smile and joke with him was beyond her. “Not wanting to take any chances? Fantastic tattoo. I wonder if Char would let me do that.”

Dina turned to see him eyeing her ink.

“Not a chance!” Charmagne yelled across the backyard making Dina laugh. “I’m considering marrying you. That should be enough.”

“Fuck, you finally got her to say yes?” Benjamin asked in surprise as Brent finally pulled his eyes away from Dina’s tramp stamp.

“Sort of. She said yes in the heat of the moment and we’re going to Reno next week before she can think up a reason to say no.”

“What?” a short, stocky man barked, glaring at Brent from his seat on a rickety chair. “There’s no fucking way. You’re going to marry her in Reno? Nuh-uh. We’ve been rooting for you too long for that.”

“If I give Char a month to wait for the wedding license, she might change her mind,” Brent said dryly. “I’m striking now before she gets scared.”


Chemistry of Attraction
Corbin's Bend Season 2, Book 1

Retired Marine Brandon Delt, moves to Corbin’s Bend after his recently divorced wife marries his cousin. Tired of living a non-discipline lifestyle, he fully welcomes the openness of the Corbin’s Bend spanking community. One day he hopes to meet the woman he could make his TiH. He doesn’t expect to meet her on day one.

Carodine Minor’s just in Corbin’s Bend for the summer. Just graduated with her master’s degree in chemistry, Dina isn’t sure of her next step in life. Not once has she ever considered being spanked. Logical woman that she is, when she finds herself intrigued by the idea of a hand across her derriere, she asks for a demonstration from Brandon. One demo turns into a wild night of passion neither wants to let go of.

Take one hot summer. Add in an intellectual chemist and a dominant retired Marine. Once the chemistry ignites, combustion is soon to follow.

Brent and Charmagne's new story, Knowing What She Needs, will be released February 1st, part of the Love in the Rockies, Corbin's Bend boxed set. 

I'm excited to share with you a little more from Learning to Live Again by Ruth Staunton, the last book from Corbin's Bend Season Two.

Learning to Live Again
Author: Ruth Staunton
Series: Corbin's Bend

Tired of increasing chaos in his family life and the distance that is growing between him and his wife, Lainie, Grant Taylor decides the only way to save his marriage is to get back to the domestic discipline lifestyle he grew up with. When he finds Corbin's Bend on the Internet, he is certain it is the perfect place for them to start over.

Exhausted and tired of juggling everything herself, Lainie reluctantly agrees to her husband's suggestion. However, she is new to the lifestyle and more than a little uncertain about it. To make matters worse, their 15-year-old daughter Kathleen is convinced they had moved her into some kind of weird spanking cult. She is miserable and not at all shy about letting everybody know it.

Will moving to Corbin's Bend be their saving grace, or will it be the final straw that tears them apart?

For the first Coming Soon Sunday post this week, I've got Target 84 by K. Larsen.

I hide in plain sight.I am a pretty face with a killer body. Literally. I kill whatever the job calls for. Women, men, I know no bounds. Why would I? I've been groomed to do this since I was a child.

Who I am?

I am a monster living among angels. After all this is over, I will redeem my actions. I will walk among those angels, fallen down on red stained leaden wings torn apart.

Who he is?

That's a secret you'll have to discover.

Spanks for everyone!

Happy Saturday. In 8 days, Love in the Rockies, the set of 6 update stories from Corbin's Bend authors will be available. My story, Knowing What She Needs, updates Brent and Char's story from the very first Corbin's Bend novel, Finding Their Bliss.

I'm giving snippets with WIPITUp Wednesday as well, so keep on eye on this blog on Wednesdays as well. In this snippet, Brent is very aware of the simmering woman at his side. Not only was her temper hot, but the cream he rubbed onto her rear end was also making sure she couldn't sit still on the ride to his cousin's cabin.


Hopefully she was taking her sullen time to think.

Damn but he loved her. He never thought it was possible to love anyone more than he loved Eliza and yet… here she sat, beautiful lady in her barely-there dress and her sullen expression. The way she had spoken to him at the dome told him he had waited too long to force the issue. Charmagne didn’t talk back unless she was truly stressed. Poor thing. As soon as they got there, he’d make her talk, they’d wash off the cream, and he’d spank her ass until she couldn’t sit down. Once she was relaxed, they could start the romantic evening he had planned.

It's another WipItUp Wednesday.

I'm taking a break from the Highlander story for a few weeks to give you a few snippets from Knowing What She Needs, a Corbin's Bend update story on Brent and Char...what are they doing this Valentine's Day? Well, they're apart for one...


“I miss you,” he said simply.

Her answer was a soft sigh. “I miss you, too. Waking up with you gone was not pleasant.”

“Sorry, baby. But half the community lost power with the new snowfall after someone ran into the pole that held the transformer. We’re almost there.”

“I know. I promise I’ll be in a better mood by the time you get home.”

“Char,” he chided. “Don’t try to put on a good face for me. Everything’s going to be fine.”

When did vanilla become a bad word? I've always enjoyed the scent and taste of vanilla. It clears the palette. And it's a wonderful base to pour chocolate sauce or strawberries on. Both figuratively and physically. But for several years, I've heard people in the kink realm turning up their nose at people who don't practice the kink they do. Instantly, they label them vanilla. 

You like being tied up? Cool. 
You like being spanked? All right!
You want me to what? Whoa! I didn't know people actually did that.
Have sex with my girlfriend while I watch? No? Vanilla bitch! You aren't kinky at all.

I used to think these people were stupid and just unbelievably closed minded. Think about it. Looking down on anyone for their sexuality just makes you look like a total asshole. You are part of a community where you should respect others kink choices, whether that be to be fucked by a baseball bat, have rape play, be pee'd on, or even to have vanilla, non-kinky sex. Personally, for me, only one of those appeals, but if someone else enjoys the others? Great! More power to you! But don't expect me to - or even to enjoy reading about it.

A reviewer labeled one of my books as 'vanilla' because she preferred dark BDSM. Okay. At the time I was annoyed, but now. I'm proud of it. 

Call me vanilla. It's not an insult. To vanilla you can add anything and make it tasty. Hell, vanilla is tasty all on its own. So, for those who feel bad because someone calls them a 'nilla - own that word loud and proud. You're an individual, not bending to the crowd. 

Plus, with everyone getting into 50 Shades, kink is no longer kinky. It's the new norm. Which means that vanilla is the new kink ;)
