Happy almost-spring. Can it just get here already? The melting snow has created lakes in my backyard and you could do the backstroke to my front door! I sure hope we have formidable delivery men for the next week or two!
That said, it’s nearly Valentines Day and there is hope that after this fine event, the weather will turn warmer. To further heat things up, today I bring you an excerpt from Leigh Ellwood’s story, the Dares that Bind.
She ventured further into the suite, one cautious step after another, passing doors for the bathroom and bedroom, in which she saw a gigantic four-poster bed with a bright floral coverlet. To think fifteen minutes from now she could be laying there, legs spread while this man pounded into her. The thought frightened, yet thrilled her.
Why did I come here with him? She instantly knew the answer. Her mind insisted research for her writing, and to disprove Alton’s theory of her submissive nature. However, her body shuddered in a silent cry for passion, determined to join forces with her heart and overrule her mind. That she willingly followed Alton to his room marked one strike against rational thought.
The click of the door’s lock sounded throughout the room, drowning out the blood pounding in her ears. Vic felt attuned to everything in the suite, with even Alton’s soft, carpeted footfalls toward her sounding like a basketball thumping against a hardwood floor. Curse this wild imagination.
“You have excellent posture,” he noted, circling her with amused appraisal. Hands clasped behind his back, he tilted his head and stepped slowly, resembling a tourist before an ancient statue. “Good lines and bone structure.”
Don’t ask me if I’ve modeled. Vic considered her five-feet-ten height an inconvenience, non-conducive to her writing aspirations since her long legs often cramped under desks while shuffling for a comfortable sitting position. Her reluctance to face another reprimand prevented her from voicing the smart remark.
“Yes, you carry yourself well.” Alton’s voice lowered and melted into the air between them. Vic felt the words caress her and tease the skin on her exposed arms. How ridiculous and utterly amazing it was that his presence compelled her to assume this rigid stance. I can leave whenever I wish. Nothing stopped her from simply turning to the door and leaving.
She exhaled slowly through her nose. Nothing but curiosity, and her desire to know what Alton planned for her.
To his credit, Alton didn’t mince words. “I think you should see how well you look, too. Stand before that mirror there,” he pointed to the full length mirror in one corner of the living area, “and take off your clothes. Slowly, and watch yourself as you do it.”
Huh? This certainly hadn’t been part of her day’s agenda. The way Alton commanded this of her sounded gentle and non-threatening yet firm, and Vic vacillated between moving to obey and wanting to escape…if only to learn whether suffering the consequences might promise something more exciting. She looked at the expectant Alton and knew instantly that he could see the war raging inside her. If he were truly a Dominant as portrayed in Kerry’s magazine, he was quite patient. Hopefully that counted as a good quality for a Dom to possess.
She watched his hands, large with thick fingers, now folded before him. What would they feel like, spanking her for her insubordinate behavior? Or perhaps the punishment for her refusal to undress would involve not touching her? God, this kink shit is so hard to figure out.
“Victoria?” he pressed, a touch of insistence in his voice now.
“Yes, sir.” That gave him pause. Vic realized Alton had never instructed her on how to address him. He appeared to be pleased.
Somehow she willed her legs to work and soon she stood before the tall, beveled mirror framed in a cherry maple stand. She stepped out of her shoes, then lifted each heel one at a time and slipped off her socks. Next would come her white t-shirt, the hem of which she now freed from the unbelted waistband of her jeans just before reaching to pull the material over her head.
“Slower, Victoria,” Alton quietly admonished. “Undressing shouldn’t be a chore or routine.” He paced behind her and she paused, watching his movement in the mirror. He stalked her carefully, his gaze taking in her entire form. “Let your movement become fluid, and graceful,” he said. “Experience the eroticism of the moment…show me your sensual nature.”

Pretty Caged Bird
Get 2 books in 1!
For your reading convenience, this book combines Pretty Bird (Haunted Hotel, Prequel) and Caged Bird (Haunted Hotel, book 1) into one volume. This book is suitable for readers 18+.
Pretty Bird is a historical western with romantic elements. Is lust blooming in Butte, Montana, love, or witchcraft? Will the residents of the Bird Cage brothel figure it out before it is too late?
Amanda agrees to a surprise vacation in order to salvage her failing relationship, but her dream fades when she discovers her ghost-hunting boyfriend has booked them into a haunted former brothel in Butte, Montana. To her surprise, the ghost of the former brothel owner takes a liking to her – in more ways than one. When Amanda and her boyfriend break up, she finds new passion with the ghostly lover. But her ex isn’t done ghost-hunting yet and Amanda must foil his plans to get rich quick before it’s too late and the love of her life vanishes forever.
Joel Rankin has been trapped in the Caged Bird since his ex-fiancé cursed him in 1880. Only the power of love can save him. When Amanda enters his establishment he is drawn her. The brunette with the beautiful curves is his type, but is she merely a ghost hunter like the man she is with or is she the one he has been waiting for?
Here is a steamy excerpt from Caged Bird
I craved his gentle and yet demanding touch. He was all masculine but not intimidating. Joel gave me things I didn’t even know I was missing with Gabe. He made me feel treasured, protected, and aware of my feminine power.
Gabe usually put himself first. He’d made me kill the spiders in our house and we fought over who would mow the lawn. He wasn’t the strong man I craved in my life. I didn’t know an alpha personality would ever want me. The bad boys seemed to have their pick of women, and I wasn’t the cream of the crop.
Joel was perfect. And he wanted me. Said I was beautiful. If only he wasn’t a ghost.
He lay beside me, his chest heaving. While ghosts might not have to recover, it did appear they needed rest. His eyes started to droop. What it would be like to sleep next to the handsome apparition? Would he disappear?
Suddenly all fatigue faded from his face, and he sat bolt upright. “I hear footsteps. Someone is coming.”
“We’re in a hotel. People go up and down the hallway all the time,” I murmured, reaching for him. There was no reason for him to go.
He stood and pulled on his trousers. I had almost forgotten he was an apparition in the midst of our very real lovemaking. When I saw his old-timey clothes it hit me like a freight train. I just had sex with a ghost.
“Better than with your ex, huh?”
“Yes.” After the heart palpitating ride with Joel, it felt good to call Gabe my ex. I deserved better than him. Much better. Mr. Rankin was more exhilarating than the Thunder Mountain rollercoaster.
I saw myself in the reflection of the mirror on the wall. Hair tussled and with a satisfied glow I looked happier than I ever had post-sex with Gabe. Joel satisfied me more than any man I’d ever been with. Granted, I hadn’t been with that many.
Joel chuckled. “I do have the ability to read your thoughts you know,” he warned in a playful voice. “You’re doing wonders for my pride.”
I groaned and threw the extra pillow at him.
I heard Gabe’s voice outside the door mumbling something about unable to procure Internet in the hotel. There was a soft knock at the door. “Amanda?”
I dove under the covers, and Joel began to fade.
My heart ached seeing him go. Gabe would notice my post sex haze. How was I going to explain that? Panic struck. “I need my vibrator,” I mouthed, heart surging in my chest.
What is that? Joel’s voice floated on the air. He was gone from my sight, but still in the room with me.
Remembering he could read my mind I thought my next directions not wanting to risk Gabe hearing me talk to myself. It is in my luggage. It looks like a pink cock.
Seriously? Joel cackled so loud I was afraid Gabe would hear from the other side of the door.
My suitcase clicked open and my clothing was gently pushed aside until my vibrator was revealed hidden at the bottom. Suddenly the pink cock hovered in the air, floating toward me.
The door opened and the dildo dropped on the bed within my reach. I quickly grabbed it. Thank you.
You won’t have need of that when I’m around.
And you’re going to stay around?
I’m not going anywhere, honey.
Of course, he wasn’t. Joel was stuck in the hotel.

Soldier in Her Lap
Wild and Tender Care
Civil War Valentine
What have I been up to, you ask? Well several things. First, I have a story I’m currently editing for MLR Press called A Soldier for Christmas. After the relative success of Rescuing Kyle, I decided to do another story featuring a returning war veteran. This one includes a soldier suffering from PTSD who goes all Rambo to protect the guy he cares about. It will be out in November.
Also the 9th volume of Sexy to Go features a story I wrote about a married couple who have been working too much and not having enough sex. Yep! It’s time for some sex therapy for them including a trip to the woods!
For Halloween there’s a special edition of Sexy to Go and I wrote 2 stories for that boxed set – both of them feature Dr. Frankenstein. Go ahead, say it. I’ve been watching too much Penny Dreadful. Yep, it’s TRUE! It’s damn hard to ignore the goodness of Rory Kinnear and Josh Hartnett. Too much temptation for one girl. So here’s more about those two tales:
Made New M/F
Hoping to bring back her former sexiness, Dr. Frankenstein creates a new body for his aging wife, but his plan goes awry when she creates a new lover of her own.
My Monster, my Dom M/M/M
When Victor’s creation demands a mate, he turns to a renowned explorer for help, ignorant of the famous man’s preference for BDSM. With his assistance, Victor opens up to his submissive side and lets the monster wield control.
Both stories are of course verra naughty. Here’s a brief excerpt from each:
“You are still you, my dear. Only the outer shell has changed.”
“But it’s changed so much!” She leaned toward the glass, fingers sweeping over her face, then down her neck and finally to her breasts. She made a tsk sound. “These were never that big, Victor.”
“Yes they were. I remember them well. They always fit so perfectly in my hands.” He cupped her breasts, both of them, and savored the weight of her newly made flesh. Testing her reactions, he swept his fingers over her nipples.
Her passionate mewl hardened him instantly. This is what he had missed, what he’d wanted to show her. “Yes, Elizabeth. The brain remembers, even if the body seems unfamiliar.” He kissed her neck the way she used to like. “It is still you and me.”
“Oh, Victor.” Her tone suggested she wanted to admonish him, tell him he shouldn’t have, but the words never came. Instead, she lowered her hand to her downy mound and teased her fingers through the dark curls.
My Monster, my Dom
“Edwam, have you ever thought about what it might be like to have two men instead of one?” He turned his head and caught the flash of interest in Edwam’s eyes. “Have you ever thought about taking and being taken at the same time?”
Edwam’s lids lowered as a ripple ran through him. He obviously found the idea titillating. How much so, Victor could not immediately ascertain. But he recognized that shudder of pleasure, the expression on Edwam’s face as the one he wore right before he came. Seconds later, Edwam opened his eyes and lowered his mouth to Victor’s ear.
“Take care, doctor. Maybe it is you who will be taken, over and over, until you can no longer stand.”
The low deep rumble of Edwam’s voice slithered heat into every orifice, and Victor vibrated with forbidden lust.
“You’d like to be taken by your monster, wouldn’t you, doctor? Taken with no holds barred. Well, be very sure you’ll get exactly that if you don’t soon find me the mate I desire.” He squeezed Victor’s waist, using his stronger than human hands to make his point. “The only question is whether or not you’ll live when I’m done with you.”
