Interview with Author Jenny Plumb

Today, I am talking with Author Jenny Plumb! I’m so excited for her to tell you about her new series.

Anna: Hello Jenny. Tell the readers a little about yourself. Where you are from, hobbies etc.

Jenny: I was born and raised in Oregon and haven’t done much traveling outside of the United States. I’m married and have two mostly grown children. Writing has been my hobby for most of my adult life, because I also have a regular Monday through Friday job, which doesn’t leave a lot of time for other hobbies. Although my friends would probably say my other ‘hobby’ is watching / obsessing over certain television shows. Since my books are grounded in reality, it might surprise my readers to know that almost everything I watch has some kind of supernatural element to it.  If it’s got a vampire, a werewolf, a ghost, a witch, a zombie, or some other creature in it, I’ve most likely watched it. 

Anna: What genre do you write?

Jenny: Everything I write has spanking in it. A story without spanking is as dull to me as eating cake without frosting. Everything I write is also ‘sweet’. There will never be a dark romance from me – I can’t even read them. I need my heroes to have a measure of kindness, even when they’re teaching the heroine a lesson. So far I’ve written in the following sub-genres for Erotic Romances: mystery, suspense, ménage, age play, BDSM, and domestic discipline. At some point in the future I’m sure I’ll write something that has supernatural elements in it.

Anna: Tell us about your latest release.

Jenny: My newest release is titled, May Flowers Campus Life book 5. It’s about a woman named Mia who has escaped an abusive dominant and is afraid to start another BDSM relationship with anyone. But when her friend Aaron rescues her from a robbery in progress and starts showing signs of dominant behavior, she can’t help but wonder if she’d be able to trust again.  When Mia’s ex starts harassing her, Aaron’s protective nature goes into overdrive, and Mia finds it harder and harder to keep her submissive side hidden from him. 

Anna: What can we look for in the future from you?

Jenny: This year is all about my Campus Life series. A new book will be coming out for each of the twelve months. After that, I’m not sure which of my budding ideas will take the spotlight, but I’m certain that I’ll be writing something, because I can’t seem to stop.

Anna: Is there anything else you’d like to tell us? Contact info? Social media links?

Interview with Author, Bethany Bliss

Today, I’m talking to Bethany Bliss. She’s going to tell us a little about herself and her newest book.

Anna: Welcome, Bethany. I’m so glad to have you here today. Tell the readers a little about yourself, where you are from, hobbies, etcetera.

Bethany: I struggle during interviews and can’t tell you how long I sat staring at this question before I could formulate an answer. 

I’m quite a boring person who has done some interesting things. Flew to Reno and Utila Honduras to visit friends and learn to scuba dive. Traveled from east coast to west in a car, just me and the dog hiking through grand canyons and driving up pikes peak. I have a kink for learning and love immersing myself in diverse cultures. 

I was born and bred in Maryland, but I migrated down to Virginia after our home burned down. In the mountains of Shenandoah Valley, I discovered a passion for natural healing and, of course, writing. 

My first attempts at fifteen were pathetic, fifty or so pages of nonsense, completely illegible, though after eight attempts, I managed a draft a publisher wanted. Blushing Books gave me the chance I needed and published two of my manuscripts right off, and I’ve finished two more with a goal of eight submissions to them this year. I’m still surprised when people like them. Last I checked, I hadn’t gotten a review below four stars, yet I’ll always think of my books as I had those first drafts: plenty of improvement to be made. 

Anna: What genre do you write?

Bethany: I favor romance. Fantasy or contemporary are my favorite sub-genres to write. I just never tire of constructing stories with danger, suspense, sexy heroes and kick-ass heroines, all submerged in their own little world of my imagining. 

Anna: Tell us about your latest release.

Bethany: The Bladed Tiger’s Empress was released April 15th and is the start of a Fantasy romance series called “Claiming Her Empire”. Book one follows Princess Marilla as she is exiled from her castle, becomes a fugitive in her empire, learns to defend and protect herself, then reclaims her crown as Empress all with her most loyal general by her side. The fiercest, strongest, and sexiest warrior, who earned the warrior name Bladed Tiger for his formidable duel blade fighting style. 

Anna: What can we look for in the future from you?

Bethany: Another release is anticipated the last week of May as a start of another trilogy. I hope to complete the eight books I have been working on for Blushing Books within the year, releasing two trilogies and two standalone romance novels. That is my ambition. I have already completed four!

Anna: That’s great! Is there anything else you’d like to tell us? Contact info? Social media links?

Bethany: Stalk me for fun times, book reviews, and chances to win giveaways of author swag and free books!

Thank you so much for joining me today, Bethany, and good luck with your writing.

Readers, join us again soon, for another author interview.

An Author’s Busy Weekend

I’m back after a fun weekend at Book Obsessed Babes Author Signing Event in historical St. Augustine. The Mardi Gras themed event was coordinated by Taira Wilds and her fantastic group of volunteers. This was my first time to attend this signing, and it certainly won’t be my last. The fun started on Friday night with a meet and greet party for the authors in the Colonial Quarter area in the historical district. We enjoyed a Cajun buffet, a DJ, and lots of mingling and picture taking.

On Saturday, we gathered in the morning to set up, take group and individual photos, and then we had lunch. After that, the VIP ticket holders came in and the general public joined us a little later. Until 4:30, we laughed, talked books with readers and had all kinds of fun. There were also interviews with the Hangin With Web Show. And even though I’m suffering with knee issues and had to wear a brace,  which, unfortunately, you’ll see in the photo, I enjoyed the entire event!

Some friends of ours even stopped by to see me and to have a book signed!

 

***But that’s not all that happened over the weekend. On Friday, March 8, Book Two in my Dominant Men series, Her Convenient Dom by USA Today Bestselling Author, Isabella Kole, was released by Blushing Books! It’s done very well so far and I’d like to share some comments from reviewers with you and tell you a little about the book. And even though it’s book two, it can be read as a standalone!

“This is a wonderful story about two people, Harper – a young nurse’s assistant, and Parker, a well-to-do older widower with two young children.” 5 stars*****

“The side plot of the unwanted hostile takeover attempts present a few problems for them, and that plot has a couple of unforeseen twists including some violence, but there is a very HEA ending that will warm your heart. The spankings are more sensual than harsh, and the sex is very vanilla. How vanilla you ask, well there is even a vanilla-scented bubble bath scene. If you are looking for a feel good story with a little kink and sensual sex without graphic excess, this one is for you.” 4 Stars****

“I really enjoyed this book by Isabella Kole.  I give it an enthusiastic 5 stars!”*****

“This is a nice long read.” 5 stars*****

“From the beginning to the end, Ms. Isabella Kole knocked this one out of the park. OMG, between the amazing characters, their interaction, the people around them, to the mystery suspense, this was a page-turning tale. 5 stars*****

“A good old fashioned romance. Evans meets Harper after his son had an accident at the Dr. She instantly likes him and before you know things turns interesting. A lovely read.” 5 stars*****

Now, here’s the blurb for Her Convenient Dom:

Parker Bentley, widower and owner of a popular restaurant chain, has just asked his nanny to marry him. And he’s made it very clear that even though it is a marriage of convenience to save his company from a takeover, it will be a real marriage. There will be no divorce, ever. He will be the head of the household, and she will have rules to follow. She will want for nothing, with a beautiful home in Chicago, a beach house in South Carolina, and money to buy whatever she wants. In return, she will help him run his business and his household, and raise his two small children. She will be his wife, in every sense of the word. His convenient wife.

Harper Easton can’t believe her luck. The handsome, sweet man she works for has just asked her to marry him. However, there are strings attached. He expects her loyalty, her obedience, and her trust. Someone is trying to steal his affections and his company, and he is not having any of it. Harper is the key to preventing that from happening. She knows he doesn’t love her, even though she is beginning to have feelings for him. Can she go through with it? How hard can it be? After all, he is a wonderful father, a fair employer, and fun to be around. Surely, she could be his wife, his lover, his partner and mother to his children without love getting in the way. And as far as his domineering ways are concerned, she finds those very sexy indeed…

Isabella Teams Up With Coleen Singer

 

submitting-to-her-professor-200x300-2Hello again! My spicier side, Isabella Kole, has teamed up with the awesome Coleen Singer for a sweet little romance. Let me fill you in.

 

BLURB:

Annie has a hard time saying no. She is a worrier and always tries her best to please everyone. When she allows a smarmy, big guy on campus to talk her into letting him into the research lab she works in, knowing it is against the rules, it really lands her in big trouble.

Mortified after her employer, young, sexy professor, Jackson Davis, catches her in what appears to be an incriminating position, Annie fears losing her job, and maybe even expulsion and an arrest. When Dr. Davis proposes an alternate solution to her, how can she refuse? After all, hasn’t it always been a secret desire of hers to experience discipline at the hands of a handsome man?

Only problem is, the more time she spends with the hot professor, the more she finds herself falling for him – and that’s just asking for heartbreak, isn’t it?

Publisher’s Note: Sweet romance with a mild sexual scene and domestic discipline. If this offends you, please refrain from buying this book.

EXCERPT:

The hurt in his voice made Annie feel even worse. When he had been scolding her, she could at least try to defend herself. But when he reproached her quietly, she knew she had no good excuse for her behavior. She couldn’t believe she had done such a thing – she knew it was wrong, and she had allowed Paulie to talk her into it. She felt so guilty that she was afraid her knees would buckle, and her stomach was in knots.

“Why did you do it?” Jack repeated sternly.

Annie wished the floor would open and she would fall right through. She had never been so ashamed in her life. She knew she had to answer his question, even though she had no excuse for her miserable behavior. He would just keep repeating it until she answered. “I…h-he came and sat with me at dinner. He seemed so nice.” It was all she was able to choke out.

“So you invited him to my lab to have sex?” Jack asked incredulously.

“No, no!” Annie responded desperately. “I…he wanted to go some place where we could be warm. H-he…kissed me. And he wanted to come here so we’d be out of the cold.”

“So you said sure and brought him here.”

Annie was flustered again, and the shame burned through her whole body. She couldn’t seem to explain herself, probably because there really was no excuse for what she had done. “No, I told him we couldn’t come here. I explained about the laws and the rules and…well…”

“Well, what? How did you end up here, then?”

“I don’t know!” Annie almost wailed. “I tried and tried to tell him no, but he just kept begging me and demanding, and somehow, I gave in and we came here.”

“So all you had to do was tell him no. It’s not like he grabbed the key card from you and broke in or anything like that. He just asked enough times until you said yes? Annie, that doesn’t make any sense.”

“I know,” Annie whispered.

“Why didn’t you just keep saying no? Is that so hard?” Jack demanded.

“I don’t know. I mean, yes. I mean, I don’t know why I gave in. It is hard to say no.”

* * *

Jack was starting to get himself under control now, but he knew he still had every right to feel very angry with Annie. He grabbed a chair from the desk, turned it around to face her, and sat in it. He took Annie by the arms and stood her directly in front of him. With him sitting, they were on the same level and he could look directly into her eyes.

“Annie, what you have done tonight is very serious. There are strict laws protecting lab animals, and you broke those laws by bringing food and drink into the lab, not to mention the alcohol and illegal drugs.”

“But I…” Annie interrupted.

Jack shook his head. “No, Annie, it doesn’t matter whether you knew what your little friend was bringing in or not. You unlocked the door and let him in, and that makes you legally responsible.”

Annie hung her head again. Jack continued, “Not only did you break federal animal protection laws, you broke very strict university rules, allowing no unauthorized persons to enter animal labs. The university could lose its standing with granting agencies if your behavior were to be known and go unpunished. So, in addition to being arrested for violating federal laws, you could be expelled from the university for your behavior.”

* * *

Annie stood in front of Jack, feeling as if she wanted to die. She was absolutely horrified by what she had done. She couldn’t believe she had allowed some stupid frat boy to cause all of her dreams to go up in smoke. She was the first one in her family to go to college; she had been valedictorian of her high school; she was the one all her family had pinned their hopes on. Now, she had ruined everything – all for some stupid boy and his kisses. She had gotten a full scholarship to a prestigious Ivy League university and had a chance to make something of herself, and she had blown it. Not just blown it but really exploded it. Now, she was not only going to be kicked out of school, she was going to jail! Jail! She had never felt worse in her life.

“Not only can you be arrested and expelled, but, Annie, I placed my trust in you. You knew the rules, and you knew how important my lab is to me. I could lose my research grant because of what you’ve done! I have to have these studies published to get tenure, and you risked all that, just to let that scumbag in here tonight because you liked the way he kissed you? I placed my trust in you, and this is how you repay me? What do you have to say for yourself?”

If Annie thought she had felt bad after he told her about being arrested and kicked out of school, it was nothing to what she felt now. How could she have done that to him? She didn’t know it was possible to feel so bad. She wished she had never been born. She wished she could just die right now, so she wouldn’t have to see Professor Davis looking at her like that. She willed her heart to stop so she could end her pain. She also realized that she didn’t deserve the easy way out. She deserved to suffer. She deserved to be thrown out of school, publicly shamed, and sent to jail.

“Annie, do you have anything to say for yourself?” Jack repeated.

“No, sir.” Annie tried to stifle her sob.

There was a pause while Jack just looked at her. “Well, Annie, what are we going to do with you, hmm?” Jack asked rhetorically.

He was surprised when Annie answered.

“Call the police and have me expelled and sent to jail.” Annie sobbed quietly, with her head hanging as low as it could go.

* * *

Her utter dejection and obvious remorse almost made Jack smile, despite his anger. Almost. He was still annoyed with her, and if he could have, he would still have liked to spank her for her behavior, but he really had no intention of reporting her and having her either expelled or arrested. And even if she had been arrested, she wouldn’t have ended up jailed for a charge like this; she would have ended up with a fine. She must have jumped to conclusions when he had told her that she could be arrested. This kind of thing did happen all the time, and although he wanted to put enough fear into her so she never did it again, she had not actually had the food or drink in the room with the rats, only in the outer office, which was not nearly as bad. Besides, it was a paperwork nightmare for him to report her. He took a deep breath and used his sternest tone.

“Annie, I am furious with you. What you did was inexcusable! I should spank you until you can’t sit down for a week.”

Uh oh! How did that slip out? Jack couldn’t believe he had said that out loud! He tried to think of something to say immediately and hoped she wouldn’t notice, but she looked up quickly at him with wide, shocked eyes. “I don’t want you to be expelled or arrested either, Annie, but your behavior cannot be tolerated,” Jack said the first thing he could think of to try to distract her.

* * *

Annie couldn’t believe her ears. Did he just say that he should spank her? Was he really going to spank her before sending her to jail? She certainly deserved it, she thought, and she had plenty of fantasies about being spanked by a handsome man for her misdeeds. But reality seemed quite different from her fantasies. In her fantasies, it was always a boyfriend or husband who spanked her, and it was always because he loved her and wanted her to become a better person. And even in her fantasies, a spanking had never been as justified as it was now, in reality. She couldn’t believe she had done something so awful. She was lost in her reflections when she suddenly realized he had asked her another question.

“I’m sorry, sir, what did you say?” Annie whispered tentatively.

“For Christ’s sake, Annie, aren’t you even listening to me?” Annie flinched at the expletive and Jack realized that she probably wasn’t listening because she was processing his threat to spank her. Shit, she was probably planning to sue him for harassment. After what she had done to him, now she was going to come out looking like the victim! Damn! How could he have let that slip? He had just been so mad! And she did deserve it!

On top of everything else, he was going to have to fire her, and that pissed him off as well. Damn it, she had been a great research assistant, but he couldn’t just keep her after a stunt like this. She had to be punished, and although he wasn’t going to have her expelled or charged, he couldn’t just keep her on as if nothing had happened. It was too bad he couldn’t spank her. That could have solved everything. He could punish her to make sure she never did anything like that again, but he wouldn’t have to lose his best research assistant. Ah well, no use hoping for the impossible. Even just having brought it up might cost him his job, if she reported him for it. Damn, damn, damn! He was so mad at her for everything.

“I’m really sorry. I know what I did was wrong. I don’t know how I could have done it. I don’t want to go to jail! I am so, sorry.” Annie was sobbing so hard that her legs gave out and she fell to her knees. Jack sighed and reached over and pulled her back to a standing position, so that she was positioned directly in front of him again.

“Annie.” Jack sighed again. “You are not going to go to jail. I am not going to report you. However, your behavior…” Jack started to explain that he would have to fire her, but Annie interrupted him by falling to her knees again and grabbing both of his shins in an awkward hug.

“Thank you, thank you, thank you, for not sending me to jail. How can I ever thank you? I’m so scared to go to jail! Thank you, thank you for just expelling me. Thank you so much, sir.” It was not easy for Jack to understand her through her sobs. He took her arm and pulled her back to her feet again. He ran his hand through his hair in frustration, then took another deep breath.

“Annie, you’re not going to be expelled, either. I’m not going to report you. But this kind of behavior cannot go unpunished. Annie, do you understand me?” Jack wasn’t sure that Annie could even hear him through her sobs.

Annie couldn’t believe it! Did he just say that he was not going to have her expelled or arrested? She knew she deserved both and worse, but was he really going to let her go without the public shame of arrest and expulsion?

“Annie, I said this behavior cannot go unpunished. I am going to have to fire you.” Jack took Annie by the shoulders to try to get her to look at him, so he could see if she had heard him over her sobs. He made his voice stern again. “Annie, stop that crying this instant! Do you hear what I’m saying?”

To Jack’s surprise, Annie managed to choke back her sobs immediately and turned her face up to look at him. “Yes, sir,” she choked softly. “I have to be punished so you’re going to fire me.” After a pause, she added, “Is that all you’re going to do to me?”

“Why, isn’t that enough?” Jack said wryly, hoping she wasn’t going to start accusing him of harassment now.

“Well, what about that other thing you said?” Annie asked, her face starting to flush.

“What other thing?” Jack pretended not to know what she was talking about.

Annie’s face went even redder. “The spanking,” she said softly.

Jack didn’t know what to say and wanted desperately not to incriminate himself. “Why, do you want a spanking?” he asked brusquely.

“No, but I don’t want to be fired, either.”

Jack’s whole body tingled suddenly. Was she asking him for a spanking? “Then, what are you saying? That you want to trade being fired for a spanking?” Jack couldn’t believe they were even having this conversation.

Annie took a moment to answer. “W-well, i-if you’ll let me, I guess. I thought you were going to do both to me. I feel so bad about what I did. I deserve to be kicked out of school and sent to jail, I know, and to be spanked and fired. And I’m so grateful to you for letting me stay in school me and not sending me to jail…” Her sobs started again softly.

Jack broke in, “Annie, I’m not your father. I can’t just spank you…” His voice trailed off. What the hell was he saying? He wanted to spank her so badly! Why was he saying this! On the other hand, it wasn’t worth his job, if she reported him. Annie still just stood in front of him with her head down. “Even if you deserve it,” he finished.

“There has to be something I can do. I want to make it up to you, somehow.” Annie still looked at the ground as she spoke quietly. “Maybe I can just work for you for free, and you don’t have to pay me. I can get another work study job, and I can try to repay you by working for free.” She paused. “Oh, you probably don’t even want me around now that you can’t trust me anymore.” She paused again and a few tears trickled down her cheek. “But I just feel so bad. I feel so bad! I am so, sorry and there is nothing I can do.” She put her hands up and covered her face.

Bethany Leigh…Brand Spanking New Author to Watch Out For

Bethany Leigh has just released her first two works with Blushing Books! Betrothed, a novella prequel and the follow-up, Freedom. I’m going to tell you a little about both of these  today. Great stories, both set in a compelling alternate Edwardian universe. You’ll giggle, gasp and smile as you read them, just like I did!

Betrothed

 

 Betrothed

Lady Cassandra has been warned that ‘the betrothal is the hardest thing a woman goes through’ – but it’s not until she’s caught attending a forbidden rally that she discovers the painful truth behind those words.

Blurb:

Lady Cassandra is betrothed to the man she loves – but she doesn’t think it right that he will inherit her family’s estate one day. So, with two friends, she attends a Freedom for Women League rally. Lady Margia and the Freedom for Women League are fighting for the right of women to vote, own property, and not be subject to the discipline of their menfolk.

The campaign could change Lady Cassandra’s future – but when she gets caught attending the rally, it makes her present life a lot less comfortable…

Set in the same alternate Edwardian universe as Freedom.

Excerpt:

Now that we were betrothed, Edmund too had the right to punish me physically; though he still needed to obtain permission from Father, who would punish me, too. That was why Mama had warned me about the betrothal. “Even though once you’re married, your husband can bare your bottom to spank you, at least you’ll know while he’s disciplining you that there isn’t a second punishment to come,” she’d told me. “Instead, what usually comes after a marital spanking is infinitely more delicious. As you’ll find out at the Bedding Ceremony.”

I’d had a horror of the Bedding Ceremony since I was a child and attended a wedding on the other side of town. After the Wedding Ceremony, everyone had gathered at the married couple’s new home for the Wedding Feast. Before the feast was served, the groom had carried the bride over the threshold and up to their bed chamber. There had been silence in the great hall while everyone listened to the thwacks and squeals coming from upstairs. Presently, the groom had appeared on the gallery, brandishing the paddle he’d been given by the bride’s father in one hand, and a blood-stained sheet in the other. All the adults had clapped and cheered and stomped. Horrified, I’d asked Mama if the bride had been spanked until she bled; Mama had laughed, hushed me and whispered no, of course not; a good, loving husband would spank his wife hard if she displeased him, but he would never really hurt her. Later, in my bed chamber, she explained about the blood.

It still mystified me how Mama could say a husband would “never really hurt” his wife. The spankings and canings I received from Father always hurt, and they were over skirts – and I’d often heard Mama yelling and crying when Father paddled her. Yet, at every Bedding Ceremony I’d attended, the bride always looked radiant when she came down to the Feast, even if she did have to sit on a cushion.

Freedom

Freedom

 

Politics and passion collide in Edwardian England when women’s rights activist Lady Margia encounters the handsome and traditional Sir Cormac Adair.

Blurb:

Lady Margia and her Freedom for Women League are scandalising the country – demanding the right to vote, own property, and not to be spanked by their menfolk. Lady Margia is determined that her campaign will succeed – whatever the cost. But how can she reconcile her beliefs with the attraction she feels towards the traditional Sir Cormac Adair?

Meanwhile, Lady Isobelle sees Lady Margia’s campaign as her chance to inherit her family estate, and, along with her maid Edie, breaks household rules and attends a local rally.

Join Lady Margia, Lady Isobelle and Edie in an alternate Edwardian universe as they hit the campaign trail, encountering intrigue, romance, spankings and surprises along the way.

Excerpt:

He joined them by the fire when Lady Drusilla had poured tea. “I understand your rally was broken up, Lady Margia,” he said.

Lady Margia nodded. “Yes, but I’d almost finished my speech, so it didn’t matter. As long as the message went out.”

Sir Cormac reached for a scone. “That’s all right for you to say, surely?”

Lady Margia sighed. “What do you mean?”

“Well, you’re one of the few women at that rally who’ll be sitting comfortably right now. I find your campaign very irresponsible, Lady Margia. You spare no thought for those women currently regretting their defiance, or for the men who really have better things to do than have to constantly police their womenfolk’s behaviour and administer punishment.”

“Then they should stick to those better things to do,” said Lady Margia, “and let women make their own decisions about their own lives.”
