Morgan has finally found her place in the world...at Lord Evan's feet. But will he accept her as his submissive after her training or must she find another Dom?

Little Book of Fantasies by Miranda Heart

Kaitlyn couldn't have been more surprised than when her boyfriend of three months suddenly kidnaps her and drags her to an abandoned train car. She doesn't know whether she's going to be tortured to death or remain for his pleasure, so why is she titillated by the whole thing?

A Scandalous Arrangement by Kayleigh Jameson

A well-bred lady and a rakish earl escape the ton and shed their inhibitions in A Scandalous Arrangement...

Sold into the service of a brothel madame to satisfy her brother's gambling debts, Lady Anna Boscawen finds herself catapulted into the scandalous, seedy underbelly of the ton when she is given a new name and her virginity is auctioned off to the highest bidder. Vere Fane, Earl of Westmorland is rich, powerful, and devilishly handsome, known throughout society for his carnal inclination and the pleasure and pain he inflicts upon the women he alternately ravages and worships. Bound together by unusual circumstances, Vere leads Anna through a whirlwind of emotions, teaching her to find the ultimate freedom - in submission.

Unwrapping Amy by Emily Ryan-Davis

Amy and Mac Corcoran have known one another for 20 years. They've been lovers for 16. Married for 14. Twenty years, and they still have secrets. Will confession hold them together or tear them apart?

Efflorescence by Katrina Strauss

It's the spring of 1920. The wholesome Gibson girl is fading from grace, while the spirited Flapper has yet to emerge. In the midst of this transition, a young and bored Hannah struggles to find her place. When she models for Russian painter Pavel, she meets a kindred restless spirit. As their friendship evolves, their sessions lead both to question their taboo desires. But as Hannah and Pavel gradually explore these desires, can they also find room in their lives for love? With themes of bondage, and a guest appearance by a young Anais Nin, Efflorescence explores one girl's coming-of-age at a time when women, as a whole, redefined their role in a changing world.

Touching Down by Joe Wilson

Joe flies a thousand miles to give a pink rose to a woman he calls Pita, and to demand she submit. When she obeys, he challenges her values and fears with lust and pain … six miles above the ground … in a lavish casino resort … at a pillar with a whip and a poem, and that damn pink rose. On an unlikely journey, a jaded dominant and a wary divorcee begin an adventure that will take the rest of their lives and teach them once again about love and trust.

The Things You See Sometimes

Oh the fun of living in the city. I say this with sarcasm, by the way. This morning I was working on my writing and one of my cats was diligently making as much noise as she could playing with the blinds of the window behind me. Eventually the muse had enough of the noise so I got up to move her from the window.

Right outside of this window is a fence that partitions my place from the one next door. But their land is slightly elevated, so from this window it is unfortunately easy to see into the yard next door. Even when you really aren't trying to do so.

Apparently my neighbors next door decided to try voyerism this morning because they were having sex right there in the backyard against a tree. It took me a second to realize what I was seeing.

I think they really need a higher fence. And I certainly won't be opening those blinds for a long time:)

Taking The Power Back

The other day I had my fortune told. It was part of a charity silent auction we did at work, and my bid was one of the winners.

I went into it a bit skeptical because I had never had something like that done before. But the man that did it was very interesting. He was a licensed psychic counselor. I found the experience to be very interesting and enlightening.

The whole reading was very positive, and he spent a lot of time talking about how wonderful my recent decision was. It was meant to be, he said. Now I had not said anything at all to him about anything. So when he mentioned writing, I'm sure my eyes got a bit big. But I was told I am finally forging down the path that I should have been on.

That's nice to know. I wish they'd help guide me toward the ending of my wips....lol.

So I was told that I needed to take my power back. Someone has been taking my power from me when I wasn't looking. My power chakra is apparently partially blocked as well. He told me one way to begin cleansing this chakra was through positive affirmations.

Overall it was a very good experience. I also find myself wanting to go to a second psychic reader and have him/her read me. You know I want verification. A test of sorts.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot to mention this little morsel of info. He told me I had a spirit in my house. He said spirit and I immediately thought of my liquor. But apparently he's talking about the bump in the night sort of spirit.

I so did not need to know about that spirit.

So, in the spirit of positive affirmations, I challenge everyone to post one good thing about yourself.

I'll begin: I am very creative.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Those Elusive Ideas

The past few nights I've had dreams that I actually woke up remembering. For a few seconds. I know; this isn't a strange concept for most. But for me, it is. I typically do not recall my dreams.

The annoying part is that I leap out of bed practically shouting, "Eureka! That's a perfect book!" By the time I get something to write it down on, the entire thing is gone. Why must the muse tease me this way?

I have tried the notebook by the bed with a pen. I wake up and the pen isn't there anymore. One of my two cats managed to drag it away at some point in the night.

So, here is a question for anyone reading this: Do you have any tricks you do to remember what you dream?

I can't help but find it amusing that those dreams and thoughts you wish would go away never do, yet the ones you want the most seem to vanish in literally the blink of an eye.

Have a great day everyone!

As the bonds of trust and passion ignite and surround Shana and Lucian, the hardest test of all will determine their destiny. Can Shana trust herself and her warrior enough to allow herself to explore the darkest of sexual fantasies in order to remain in Paradise?

Fridays: Why I Love The "To Do List Day"

Fridays are wonderful. I love them for a variety of reasons, but one of the most surprising one is how much I love writing up a list of "Things To Do" for the weekend.

The monotony of the day job during the week tends to suck out a lot of my energy and enthusiasm because I delve 100% of my energy into it. Needless to say, that doesn't leave as much gusto in my energy tank as I'd like to accomplish things during the week.

Sure, I have my bursts of energy where I find myself up until 1:00 a.m. pounding out my latest idea. But that is not regular by any means. So I rely on the weekends to get everything accomplished I want to. Whatever I haven't gotten around to with my writing during the week, I look forward to completing during the weekend.

So, as the slate is wiped clean and another weekend is coming around the corner, I have a mighty long list of things to do. Don't you wish weekends were 3 days long instead of 2?

What is on your list of things to do?
