I've Got Two New Sexy Holiday Romances Out!

I have two new sexy holiday romances out and the best part is that they're available in one book! You can get your copy in either eBook or Print!

All She Wants for Christmas


For weeks, Hayley Knowles has been fantasizing about getting spanked by her husband, Conner. When she lets her secret desire slip at a Christmas party with her closest friends, she is stunned to discover that not only have the other girls all gotten spanked before, but love it.

Hayley gets the surprise of a lifetime as each of her friends tells the story about the first time they got spanked. Each tale is sexier than the one before, and after hearing them, Hayley, wants to be spanked even more. But how can she possibly ever get her husband to do it, especially since she’s too shy to tell him?

This is the holiday season, though, so maybe Hayley might get exactly what she wants for Christmas!


As she sipped her eggnog, Hayley realized that the conversation had gone from what they were all giving their boyfriends and husbands for Christmas to what they hoped their boyfriends and husbands were going to give them.

“Monica and I were just talking about that the other day,” Lyndsay said. “And we’ve decided that we’d really like to just drop the kids at our parents’ so that our husbands can pamper us for an entire day. Breakfast in bed, followed by a bubble bath for two, then a nice, long full-body massage, and a romantic candlelit dinner.”

Genevieve rolled her eyes. “Sounds boring to me."

“That’s just because Lyndsay forgot to mention the part about the mind-blowing sex,” Monica said. “We’d get to that part at some point!”

The redhead shook her head. “If you’re going to ask for the perfect Christmas present, then you need to think big. I’d want Chase to whisk me off to a private island somewhere, rub my naked body down with oil, and then make love to me for hours on end out on the beach while the waves roll over us.”

When Hayley and the other girls laughed, Genevieve gave them a disbelieving look.

“Come on,” she said. “I can’t be the only one who has kinky Christmas wishes!”

Hayley felt herself blush at that and hastily sipped her eggnog so that her friends wouldn’t see how red her face was. She wouldn’t exactly call making love on the beach kinky, at least not compared to the fantasies she’d been having lately. Just thinking about them made her pulse quicken.

“Well,” Jill said, giving them a mischievous smile. “I’ve been thinking about how much fun it would be if Philip tied me up and had his way with me!”

Hayley almost choked on her eggnog at the words. She wasn’t the only one staring at the blond-haired girl in disbelief, either. Lyndsay, Monica, and Genevieve all looked just as surprised by the other girl’s admission.

“You have to be kidding,” Monica said.

Jill shrugged. “What can I say? There’s just something that turns me on at the thought of being bound and helpless and totally at my lover’s mercy.”

Hayley could only gaze at the other girl in wonder. Well, this was definitely a side of her normally reserved friend that she’d never seen before.

“So,” Genevieve said, sipping her wine. “What about you, Hayley? What’s your kinky Christmas fantasy?”

Hayley shifted on the couch, suddenly extremely aware of her friends looking at her. “Um...” she stammered. “I don’t really have any.”

Jill laughed. “You must,” she insisted. “We all do!”

Hayley tucked her long, blond hair behind her ear with a shrug. “Nope. I’m pretty boring, I’m afraid.”

“I find that hard to believe,” Genevieve scoffed.

“Me, too,” Monica said. “Come on, Haley. We all told what we want for Christmas. How about you?”

Beside the other girl, Lyndsay was grinning. “You know we’re going to wear you down you until you tell us.”

Hayley couldn’t help but laugh. She normally wouldn’t have succumbed to their friendly pressure, but the rum in the eggnog had her feeling much less inhibited than usual.

“Okay, but you have to promise that you won’t think I’m weird,” she said, and then hurried on before she lost her nerve. “I’d like Conn to spank me. I mean, I’ve never been spanked before, so I’m not really sure if I’d even like it, but every time I think about him putting me over his knee, I get so excited.”

Hayley held her breath as she waited for her friends to say something, but they were all staring at her in astonishment. She felt her face go red.

“Oh God!” she moaned. “You do think I’m weird! Forget I said that, okay?”

Jill shook her head. “We don’t think you’re weird at all,” she said. “At least I don’t. I’m just surprised. Not by the fact that you get turned on by the thought of Conner spanking you, I mean, but that you’ve never been spanked before.”

“Me, too,” Lyndsay and Monica said in unison.

Genevieve nodded over the rim of her wine glass.

Hayley looked at them incredulously. “Wait a minute. All of you have gotten spanked by a guy before?”

The other girls all nodded.

“You’ve really never been spanked?” Lyndsay asked.

Hayley shook her head. “Never,” she said, and then frowned. “So, I guess that means I really am weird since it seems that I’m the only one who’s never had my bottom reddened.”

Her lips forming into a pout, she grabbed a snowman-shaped sugar cookie from the plate on the coffee table and took a bite as she curled her feet under her. How could she be the only one missing out?

Hayley had first discovered her secret desire to be spanked several months ago. She had been flipping through a fashion magazine at the hair salon when an article had caught her eye. It had been a story about fulfilling your wildest bedroom fantasies, and though she had skimmed through most of it, she had stopped when she’d come to the part about spanking. Many modern women, it said, found being put over their lover’s knee for a spanking incredibly arousing. Admittedly, Hayley had been shocked at the idea at first, but the more she’d thought about it, the more intrigued she had become by the notion of getting spanked.

In fact, she had been so wrapped up in the fantasy of Conner spanking her that she barely remembered talking to the stylist while the girl had done her hair. Since then, the thought had refused to go away, and she found herself daydreaming about the subject all the time. But she could never see herself asking her husband to spank her; it would be too embarrassing.

“So, why didn’t any of you ever tell me that you were into spanking?” she asked after a moment.

Jill shrugged. “I guess we all assumed that you had done it, too.”

Hayley’s brow furrowed. “Well, I haven’t. And now that I know you girls have all done it, I’m jealous,” she said. “So, tell me what it’s like.”

Her friends all looked at each other as much as if to say “Who wants to go first?”

The Trouble with New Year's Resolutions


Sticking to her list of New Year’s resolutions had always been easier said than done for Tatum Webber. So, when her husband, Jarrett, suggests that he give her a spanking every time she slips up, she readily agrees. It might be just the incentive she needs. Besides, she’s sure he wouldn’t really spank her.

But it turns out that Jarrett is completely serious about spanking her. And when Tatum’s best friend keeps ratting her out every time she slips up, she finds herself getting spanked on a regular basis.

The only thing that’s more surprising than Jarrett's spankings is how much Tatum enjoys them!


Taking in Tatum’s petite, slender figure in the simple top and long, flowing skirt she was wearing, he pointedly checked his watch. “I was at the gym,” he said, folding his arms across his chest. “Where were you?”

Relieved that her husband didn’t sound angry, Tatum set her purse and gym bag down on the low bench along the wall before answering. “I’m sorry,” she said. “I know I was supposed to meet you there at six-thirty, but I got held up.”

Jarrett nodded, his blue eyes regarding her with interest. “At work?”

She busied herself with the mail that was sitting on the counter so she wouldn’t have to look at him. “Kind of,” she said noncommittally.

“Uh-huh,” he said. “And then you decided to stop by the mall to do some shopping on your way to the gym, I guess.”

Tatum’s head jerked up in surprise. “How did you know I went to the mall?”

“When you didn’t show at the gym, I got concerned,” he told her. “I tried your cell phone, and when I couldn’t reach you, I called your office. They told me that you’d already left, so I called Jennifer to see if she knew where you were, and she said that you went shopping with her. Which means that you broke one of your New Year’s resolutions, didn’t you?”

She folded her arms. “No, I didn’t,” she told him, lifting her chin. “I went to the mall, but I didn’t buy anything, so technically, I didn’t break the resolution I made.”

He considered that for a moment. “But you did still blow off going to the gym to exercise,” he pointed out.

Tatum gave him a superior look. “Actually, I did go to the gym.”

Jarrett lifted a brow. “And you exercised for the full thirty minutes?”

Her brow furrowed. “Wh-what?” she stammered.

He gestured to the list of resolutions that she’d hung up on the refrigerator with a magnet. “You said that you were going to exercise at least thirty minutes a day, three times a week,” he reminded her.

She chewed on her lower lip. “’t check my watch,” she mumbled.

“Which is your way of saying that you didn’t exercise for the full thirty minutes,” Jarrett concluded.

Tatum sighed in exasperation. “Okay,” she admitted. “I did ten minutes on the treadmill, and then I came home. I’ll make up for it next time.”

Jarrett shrugged. “Regardless of the fact that you blew me off, you still broke your resolution,” he said. “Which means that I’m going to have to give you a spanking.”

She blinked. “A what?”

“A spanking,” he repeated. “We did agree that was what I would do if you slipped up and broke your resolutions, didn’t we?”

“Well, yeah,” she said. “But that was because I didn’t think you were really going to do it.”

His mouth quirked. “Unlike you, babe, when I say I’m going to do something, I actually follow through on it.”

Tatum stared at her husband in disbelief. Jarrett couldn’t really intend to spank her, could he? But he had taken her hand and was already leading her over to the kitchen table.

“Honey...” she began, trying to hang back.

He turned to face her. “You did say that you wanted me to help you keep your New Year’s resolutions, didn’t you?”

“Yes, but...” she hesitated.

“Tatum, if you expect to stick to your resolutions, then you have to be held accountable for those times that you don’t. It will never work if you aren’t,” Jarrett told her sternly. “Tonight, you chose not only to go to the mall instead of meeting me at the gym like you were supposed to, but you didn’t exercise for the full thirty minutes once you did get there. I’d say that you’ve earned yourself this spanking.”

Tatum chewed on her lower lip. Was he right? Was the reason she’d never been able to stick to her New Year’s resolutions because she’d never been held accountable for doing so? Maybe so, she thought. Perhaps a few smacks on the bottom were just what she needed. Besides, she was sure her husband wouldn’t spank her that hard.

“Okay, you’re right,” she said, giving him a sheepish look.

Jarrett lifted a brow, probably at how easily she’d given in, she thought, but he made no comment. Instead, he just pulled out one of the straight-backed chairs from the table and sat down.

Tatum went over his knee meekly, though her cheeks colored when she thought of the picture she must be making with her head hanging down and her bottom up in the air.

Thursday Thirteen!

Thirteen Interesting Facts About Thanksgiving!

1. The first recorded Thanksgiving ceremony took place on September 8, 1565, when 600 Spanish settlers, under the leadership of Pedtro Menendez de Aviles, landed at what is now St. Augustine, FL, and immediately held a Mass of Thanksgiving for their safe delivery to the New World; there followed a feast and celebration.

2. In the Plymouth tradition, a thanksgiving day was a church observance, rather than a feast day.

3. Turkey is usually the featured item on any Thanksgiving feast table (so much so that Thanksgiving is sometimes referred to as "Turkey Day"). Stuffing, mashed potatoes, with gravy, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, sweet corn, other fall vegetables and pumpkin pie, are commonly associated with Thanksgiving dinner.

4. All of these primary dishes are actually native to the Americas or were introduced as a new food source to the Europeans when they arrived.

5. To feed the needy at Thanksgiving time, most communities have annual food drives that collect non-perishable packaged and canned foods, and corporations sponsor charitable distributions of staple foods and Thanksgiving dinners.

6. In celebrations at home, it is a holiday tradition in many families to begin the Thanksgiving dinner by saying grace.

7. In the United States, Thanksgiving is a four-day or five-day weekend vacation in school and college calendars. Most business and government workers are also given both Thanksgiving and the day after as paid holidays.

8. Thanksgiving Eve, on the Wednesday night before, has been one of the busiest nights of the year for bars and clubs, both in terms of sales and volume of patrons, as many students have returned to their hometowns from college.

9. In New York City, the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade is held annually every Thanksgiving Day from the Upper West Side of Manhattan to Macy's flagship store in Herald Square.

10. The parade features parade floats with specific themes, scenes from Broadway plays, large balloons of cartoon characters and TV personalities, and high school marching bands. The float that traditionally ends the Macy's Parade is the Santa Claus float. This float is a sign that the Christmas season has begun.

11. The American winter holiday season (generally the Christmas shopping season in the U.S.) traditionally begins the day after Thanksgiving.

12. American football is often a major part of Thanksgiving celebrations in the United States. The National Football League has played games on Thanksgiving every year since its creation; the tradition is referred to as the Thanksgiving Classic. The Detroit Lions have hosted a game every Thanksgiving Day since 1934. The Dallas Cowboys have hosted every Thanksgiving Day since 1966. Since 2006 three games are played on Thanksgiving Day, with the third not having a set host team.

13. The most well known Thanksgiving holiday weekend college football games include:

Ole Miss Rebels
vs. Mississippi State Bulldogs (the Egg Bowl)
BYU Cougars
vs. Utah Utes (the Holy War)
LSU Tigers
vs. Arkansan Razorbacks (the Battle for the Golden Boot) Georgia Bulldogs vs. Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets (Clean Old-Fashioned Hate)
Colorado Buffaloes
vs. Nebraska Cornhuskers
Texas Longhorns
vs. Texas A&M Aggies (the Lone Star Showdown)
Florida Gators
vs. Florida State Seminoles (the Sunshine Showdown)
Pittsburgh Panthers
vs. West Virginia Mountaineers (the Backyard Brawl)
Grambling State University
Tigers vs. Southern University Jaguars (the Bayou Classic)
Alabama State University vs. Tuskegee University (the Turkey Day Classic)
Notre dame Fighting Irish
vs. USC Trojans (The Notre Dame-USC Rivalry Game)

The Girl Next Door!

I'm thrilled to announce that I have a brand new sexy, contemporary spanking romance out called The Girl Next Door!

Unlike her roommate, Amber Bennett isn’t into spanking, which makes her dubious about attending a weekend spanking getaway in the Bahamas. But her friend assures her that Amber can go do her own thing and will never know there’s any spanking going on.

It turns out that her roommate is right. Not only does Amber not hear a single spank the whole time she’s there, she ends up having a wonderful, relaxing vacation. To make it even better, she meets an absolutely dreamy guy. She and Colt Forrester immediately hit it off, and sparks are flying between them before they even make it back to his room. Colt’s hot looking, a great kisser, and on top of that, he lives in New York, just like she does. Who knows? she thinks. Maybe they could even date once they got back home. Could it get any better?

But will Amber still feel the same about Colt after the evening takes a surprising turn and she learns that he’s into spanking?


While the conversation might have come easily, Amber had to admit that she still found it difficult to focus on what Colt was saying during most of it. More than once, she found herself getting lost in those sexy blue eyes of his. And when she wasn’t doing that, she was gazing down at his strong hands and imagining what they would feel like caressing her body. Maybe it was a good thing she hadn’t met him the first night she’d been there, she told herself as they shared dessert, otherwise she might have spent the whole vacation in bed. Which wouldn’t necessarily have been a bad thing, she decided as she watched him lift a forkful of cake to his mouth and close his lips over the decadent dessert. Dear God, she could sit and gaze at him all night!

She and Colt probably would have sat there, too, if the waitress hadn’t come by for what seemed like the hundredth time asking if she could get them anything else.

“I think that’s her subtle way of telling us to leave,” Amber said as the girl moved off.

Colt chuckled. “I think you’re right,” he agreed. “But that doesn’t mean the evening has to end just yet. Want to come up to my room for a drink?”

Amber felt her pulse skip a beat at the look in his sexy blue eyes. He was asking her up to his room for much more than a drink, she knew, and she hesitated for a moment. She usually didn’t sleep with guys until the third date, but Colt was really hot. And she was on vacation, she reminded herself. From everything...including her three-date rule.

She smiled at him. “I’d love to.”

Colt’s room was on the eighth floor, but because the elevator stopped on every floor in between to let people on and off, it seemed like the ride up took forever. Now that Amber had made the decision to sleep with him, she was impatient to get his clothes off and see if he really was as well-built as she’d thought. By the time they stopped on Colt’s floor, Amber was ready to push him up against the wall in the corner of the elevator and have him right there.

Which was why when Colt asked what she’d like to drink once they got to his room, she gave him a sultry smile and said, “You really didn’t ask me up here for a drink, did you?”

He let out a soft chuckle. “Not really.”

“That’s what I thought,” she said. Sliding her hands up the front of his button-up shirt, she gently pulled him close for a kiss.

Colt’s mouth was firm and insistent on hers, and she melted against him with a little sigh of pleasure as his tongue intertwined with hers. Damn, the man could kiss!

Sliding one hand in her hair, he ran the other over her hip to cup her bottom. She could feel the heat from his skin through the thin material of her skirt, and Amber moaned her approval against his mouth.

Colt abruptly tore his mouth away. His breathing was ragged as he gazed down at her. “I want to...” he began, but she didn’t let him finish. Instead, she kissed him again.

“Yes,” she breathed

Letting out a groan, Colt took her hand and led her over to the chaise. Amber went eagerly. She’d never had sex on one of those before. This was going to be fun!

But to Amber’s surprise, Colt didn’t pull her into his arms when he sat down, but guided her over one of his legs so that she was draped over the chaise’s cushion. She automatically pushed herself up onto her elbows, all set to ask what he was doing when she felt him caress her upturned bottom. Oooh, she thought as he ran his hand over her ass. That was nice. Very nice!

Settling back down on the chaise, Amber let out a soft, little moan, only to gasp in surprise a moment later when she felt him give her ass a light smack.

Her eyes went wide. Had he just spanked her?!

But then Colt was lightly caressing her bottom again, and she was sure she must have imagined the smack. Telling herself that must have been it, Amber relaxed against him and let herself enjoy what he was doing.


Amber tensed. Oh God, she hadn’t imagined it. Colt had spanked her! Was still spanking her, she corrected, letting out another startled little gasp as his hand came down on her bottom again.

She opened her mouth to protest, even thought about pushing herself to her feet, but she was so stunned that this gorgeous guy was actually spanking her that she could do no more than lie there and let him keep doing it.

What the heck had made Colt think she was into spanking? Did she look like a spanko? She didn’t think so. Then again, she thought, neither did he. In fact, he looked completely normal. It just went to show that you couldn’t go by looks, she told herself wryly.

The spanks were falling harder now, Colt’s hand smacking rhythmically against her ass over and over. Then, all at once, the spanking stopped and he was caressing her ass again. His hand felt so good after the stinging smacks that Amber had to bite her lip to stifle a moan.

That brought her head up sharply. She was not actually enjoying this, was she? The thought made her blush. Okay, that was it. She was putting a stop to this right now before she did something to really embarrass herself!
