New Release by USA Today Bestselling Author, Isabella Kole

The Daring Doms

Isabella Kole has a new release. Let me tell you a little about it. It’s a standalone about two brothers and the women who love them.

Blurb:

Dane and Dax Daring are brothers. They are also Doms who are having problems with members of the opposite sex.

When Dane met Ann Slade, Annie to all who know her, he fell head over heels… so much so that he ignored what his brother and his friends said about being her rebound lover. He married her after three months of dating, giving up the lifestyle without even telling her he was a part of it. But once the couple starts having trouble, Dax suggests that maybe it’s time things change if Dane wants to stay married.

Dax, on the other hand, has always been adamant about exclusive relationships in that he just doesn’t do them. Now that he has gotten to know his new sister-in-law, he knows he can never settle for anyone who isn’t just like her. The problem with that is he’s been in love with Annie’s best friend, Angela, since he met her. And she is nothing like Annie. Will he keep fighting the temptation, or can Angela convince him they are meant to be?

The seventh and final book in the series, Her Ambitious Dom, will release in September, 2019.

I’m back!

graphics with website linkHello there! I know many of you haven’t heard from me in quite some time. Well, there is a good reason for that. I’ve suffered three deaths in my immediate family in the last year and a half, and writing was very difficult for me. I have since remarried and moved to Florida, and things are falling into place for me as I start this new chapter in my life.

But, the good news is I’m back, and 2019 is looking good. I was able to release a few books in 2018, but this year, I’m determined to get back in the game. I’m working on a series, Dominant Men, with my Isabella Kole pen name. The first one released in October, 2018. Book two will release in March and book three in April, with more to come. I released a children’s book with one of my granddaughters, using my real name. Abraham’s Soul, by Anna Kristell, was rereleased with a new cover in October. And in December, I put together a book about my hometown, which was a collaboration of several people from the town, reliving some of their favorite memories.

As Anna, I’m also involved in a secret project with some awesome authors. Look for the preorder to that book later in the month.

I’ll give you the links to my 2018 books in this post, so you can check them out.

Want to know a bit about my story?

Blurb:

Beth O’Grady survived the ultimate betrayal, only to find herself the target of a stalker who is out to destroy her.

Colin Sutherland is the undercover Dallas cop who saved her life once before. Now that they are building a relationship, will he be able to stop the stalker before it’s too late or is he a little too close to the situation?

And who is behind the notes, phone calls and text messages? When her twin sister, Mary Kate, and her new husband, Braydon, become the first example of the seriousness of the situation, Colin decides to step up the security by moving Beth into his house. The stalker, however, is one step ahead of him…

Excerpt:

Chapter One

Beth O’Grady stepped back and admired her masterpiece. She sighed deeply and smiled. Perfect!

Her mother, petite and perky Chloe O’Grady, walked in and gasped. “Oh, Beth, it’s beautiful! Mary Kate will be so pleased.”

“Do you really think so? I want it to be everything she always dreamed of.”

“I am absolutely positive she will love it, sweetie. Ah, here she is now, you can ask her yourself.”

“What are you going to ask me, sis?” Mary Kate, Beth’s twin sister, asked with a giggle as she entered the kitchen of the family’s upscale Dallas restaurant.

“See for yourself,” Beth said as she pointed to the seven-layer wedding cake she had just lovingly baked and decorated. In fact, she had spent the entire morning crafting the perfect cake for her sister and her fiancée, Braydon Butler.

Mary Kate, or M.K. as she was known to family and friends, stepped back, her face full of awe. “Oh, my. Oh, my.” She turned to her twin.

“Uh oh, is that a good ‘oh, my’ or a bad ‘oh my?’ Beth asked worriedly.

She needn’t have been concerned, which she quickly learned when her sister grabbed her and gave her a big old sisterly hug.

“It’s wonderful, sis. It amazes me how much talent you have.”

Beth grinned and pointed to their mother. “Everything I know, I learned from the master.”

Chloe O’Grady blushed at the compliment. “Thank you, my sweet girl; I may have taught you to cook and bake but you possess a passion for it.”

“Yeah, I missed out on that particular part of the gene pool, it seems,” M.K. said with a sigh.

“Hush now! Not everyone is cut out to be a chef or baker. You have your own special talents. You help people every day in your job as a fire investigator,” Chloe said.

“She’s right, you know,” Beth added as she gave her sister another hug.

“What’s on your agenda today?” their mother asked as M.K. poured herself a cup of coffee and sat down on one of the stools in the kitchen.

“My leave time officially starts today so I’m planning to do some last-minute shopping for the wedding and for our trip afterward.”

“Would you like some company?” Chloe asked.

“Actually, Mom, that’s why I stopped by. I know Beth is working all day but I thought you might be able to sneak out for a few hours. I’d really like some time with you before everything gets hectic with last minute wedding craziness.”

“How can I turn down an offer like that?” her mother asked. “Give me a few minutes to wrap up some things in my office and I’ll be ready to go.”

“Take your time. I’ll sit with Beth and drink my coffee and chat while she works.”

When she was certain their mother was out of earshot, Mary Kate asked her sister quietly, “Anything else weird happen lately? Any more phone calls or mysterious notes on your car?”

Beth glanced over at her before replying. “No, not since the two notes a few weeks ago. And there was only one strange phone call, which could have been a wrong number.”

“Still, I want you to be aware of your surroundings at all times. That scuzball ex of yours probably has connections. He could be arranging for you to be stalked, even from inside prison.”

“Sis, I really think you are overreacting. I know, with everything that went down last year, you are worried for me. I honestly don’t think Dalton is doing any such thing. And, if you are thinking of his dad, you know he knew nothing of his wayward son’s plans.”

“So he says,” her sister said with a frown. “I still don’t know if I believe that story.”

“Well, he’d be pretty despicable if he allowed his son to take the full rap for the fire.”

“And your point?” Mary Kate asked. It was obvious she didn’t trust father or son.

“Look, sis, let’s not get into that whole mess now, okay? Your wedding to Mr. Dallas Hot Fireman is only a few days away. We should be concentrating on that and enjoying every second of the frenzy.”

Her twin sniggered. “Ah, Braydon still blushes every time one of us refers to him by that nickname. I really had no idea when you first referred to him that way in my hospital room, I would end up marrying him. I thought he was the biggest playboy ever.”

“If I remember correctly, he thought you were a rich society girl, stuck up snob.”

“Luckily, we were both wrong,” Mary Kate said wistfully as she poured another cup of coffee and helped herself to a Danish.

“I’m glad you’re finally happy. It took a while to get your life together but, now, it’s perfect. You’ve found the best job for you and the hottest, sweetest guy.”

“You make it sound like I was lost before. I was doing fine, being single and working here until the right career caught my attention. As for the hot, sweet guy, that was never supposed to happen. At least, not at the time it did.”

“But aren’t you glad it did?” Beth asked.

Mary Kate smiled and took a sip of her drink.

 

* * *

 

Chloe breezed back into the room, accompanied by her sister-in-law, Katy. “I’m ready when you are, honey,” she said.

“I came down to say hello to my beautiful nieces,” Katy added.

“Aunt Katy, would you like to come with us to the mall today? You have such good taste, and I know we will have a blast together, the three of us,” Mary Kate said.

“Oh, I don’t want to intrude on the mother and daughter time,” Katy said.

“Nonsense, you know you are always welcome. She’s right, it’ll be fun,” Chloe was quick to reply.

“Well, if you’re sure I’m not butting in, I’d love nothing more,” Katy said. “Let me run back to my office and grab my purse.”

“Beth, I’m sorry you can’t go,” Mary Kate said, looking at her sister who was busy putting together a lunch order.

“It would be fun but I will be able to spend the next few days with you. Today is my last day on the schedule until after the wedding. You guys enjoy. You and I will do something tomorrow.”

Katy returned and the three O’Grady women said their goodbyes to Beth and the rest of the staff before starting out on their shopping adventure.

Mary Kate suggested one of the better malls and Chloe offered to drive. They piled into her SUV and, soon, they were getting out of the vehicle in the parking lot and walking into the mall. The first stop was a jewelry shop, where Mary Kate purchased gifts for her bridesmaids. After that, they went into one of the boutiques and, with the help of her mother and aunt, she chose two new outfits for her wedding trip. After that, she found two adorable bikinis. Then, they decided to break for lunch before hitting the Victoria’s Secret store.

After they were seated in a booth at a chain restaurant in the mall, Chloe said, “You’ve done well so far. I love that turquoise outfit you chose.”

“Do you know where you are going or is it a surprise?” Katy asked.

The server came by to take their drink orders just then. When she had gone, Mary Kate answered her aunt’s question. “We are going to South Padre Island for a week.”

“Oh, that’s one of Ryan’s and my favorite spots. You’ll enjoy it, I’m sure,” Katy replied with a smile.

“Yes, it is lovely there,” Chloe agreed.

Each of them ordered a salad and the conversation revolved around the wedding for the rest of the next hour. When they finally decided it was time to move on, Katy offered to treat her sister-in-law and niece. “Lunch is on me. I’m so glad you included me today.”

“Thank you, Katy, that’s so sweet,” Chloe said.

“Yes, Aunt Katy, I’m glad you were able to join us. I told you we would have fun.”

Victoria’s Secret was their next stop. Mary Kate blushed profusely when her aunt chose a racy little red lace teddy for her. Her mother’s pick was a tiny bit more demure, in pink, but still very sexy. After deciding on a white negligee and a black lace short gown, Mary Kate decided the four new lingerie items were enough. She paid for her purchases and joined her mother and aunt.

“Where to now?” Chloe asked.

“I think I’m finished, unless one of you would like to go to another store.”

“I’m good,” Katy said.

“I am, too. I finished my shopping for the wedding last week,” Chloe said.

“I should get back to the office to finish some paperwork today. I want to devote tomorrow to decorating for the rehearsal dinner and, of course, Saturday morning to the reception,” Katy said.

“I’ll help you,” Chloe said.

“I can help, too,” Mary Kate said. “I know you will make it the most beautiful reception ever. The party room at the restaurant is the perfect place.”

“What else do you need to take care of? Is there anything I can do to help?” Chloe asked as they got back into the SUV.

“I just need to follow up with the florist and photographer to make sure everything is set. Since the restaurant is catering, Beth will take care of that.” Mary Kate seemed calm for a girl about to be married.

“You’ve picked up the dresses?” her mother asked.

“Beth and I will do that tomorrow. We had our final fittings last Saturday.”

“Sounds like you have everything under control,” her aunt remarked.

“I hope I haven’t forgotten anything but I think we’re good. I’ve had a lot of help.”

“Is Braydon working today?” Chloe asked.

“Yes, his leave begins in the morning. He has a list of things to take care of, too.” Mary Kate giggled. “He was going over it all last night with me.”

They reached the restaurant and said their goodbyes, Chloe and Katy returning to their offices and Mary Kate heading to the kitchen to speak to her sister.

But when she entered the room, Beth was nowhere to be seen. She asked one of the other chefs where she was.

He nodded toward the employee lounge. “She got a phone call and seemed upset. She’s in there, taking a break.”

Mary Kate wasted no time in getting to her sister. When she opened the door to the lounge, she shuddered. It hadn’t been all that long ago that her life had hung in the balance in that very room, or rather, the employee lounge that had been there before the fire that had destroyed her family’s restaurant. If Dallas firefighter, Braydon Butler, hadn’t rescued her, things would have turned out very differently, indeed.

Right now, though, her attentions needed to be focused on her sister, who had also nearly lost her life to the same madman who had set fire to the restaurant, her fiancée at the time, Dalton Raymond.

She found Beth curled up in a ball on the window seat, sobbing.

“Beth, what is it?” she said softly as she crossed the room and sat down next to her sister. She wrapped her arms around her.

“It h-happened again,” Beth said between sobs. “Another c-call.”

“Male or female?” Mary Kate asked.

“It was a man. He said, ‘I know what you did and you will pay.’ Oh, M. K., what did I do? I have no idea what he is talking about.”

“I don’t think you did anything. I still think this has something to do with the whole Dalton fiasco. I think either Dalton or his dad or someone who works for them is harassing you, blaming you for his being found guilty.”

“He was sent to a prison for the mentally ill. That wasn’t my fault. He was proven guilty and he admitted setting the fire. He also threatened to kill me. His own dad heard him say it, as well as the police officers who were at the scene. Colin saw it all through the window, too. He saw that I was tied to a chair and that Dalton had a gun.”

“I know that and you know that, but Dalton is nuts. His dad is a powerful man.”

“His dad made restitution for all the damage. Why would he hire someone to harass me now?”

“Revenge, who knows? Have you told Colin any of this?”

“N-no, not yet.”

“I think it’s high time you did. Please, Beth, talk to him. Tell him about the phone calls and the notes. I don’t want to leave town on my wedding trip worried about your safety.”

“I am meeting him for dinner tonight. I promise to tell him then. I don’t want you to worry about me. This is your special time with Braydon and nothing should mar it.”

“How can I not worry, after all we both went through in the last year?”

Beth shook her head. “It never seems to end. We both thought we got our happy endings—you, with Braydon, and me, with Colin. Now, I just don’t know about that.”

“Oh, honey, Colin is your destiny. Never doubt that. Just tell him, so he can protect you. He is an undercover cop, after all. He can surely arrange for some sort of extra protection.”

“I will tell him. This last call has really unnerved me. I tried to pass this off as a prank of some sort, but now, I’m not so sure.”

“You need to take it seriously. Now, how much longer until your shift ends?”

Beth looked at the clock on the wall. “Actually, I need to get back out there and finish something; then, I can leave.”

“Go splash water on your face. I’ll wait for you and walk you to your car. I’m not doing anything tonight since Braydon is on duty until the morning. I’ll stay with you at home until either Mom or Dad or Colin shows up. I will most likely stay in tonight, anyway.”

“Thanks, sis. I won’t be long.” Beth freshened up and returned to the kitchen, leaving her twin to worry about her.

Seeking extra protection, Mary Kate left the lounge and found their cousin, Alex. Alex was Katy’s son and the general manager of the restaurant.

“Hey, cuz, do you have the pre-wedding jitters yet?” he asked as she approached him.

She smiled. “Not pre-wedding but other jitters. Can we talk in private for a minute?”

“Sure, what’s up?” Alex asked as he led her into the private dining room and sat down.

“Promise you won’t say anything to anyone else just yet. Not your mom or Ryan or my parents, you have to promise.”

“Okay,” her cousin replied hesitantly.

She quickly explained to him about the calls and notes Beth had been receiving.

“Wow, just wow. I thought this was all behind us. What do you need me to do? You know I’d do anything for either of you girls.”

“Beth will be off duty in a few minutes. I’d like you to walk both of us out to our cars when we leave. I’m going to follow her home and stay there with her. She’s having dinner with Colin tonight and she’s promised me that she’ll tell him all about this.”

“You mean she hasn’t told him yet?” Alex asked in surprise.

M.K. shook her head. “Apparently not yet. I think I’m the only person she’s confided in. She didn’t want to upset Mom and Dad right before the wedding, I think. She also thought it was nothing more than a prank until today’s phone call.”

“I will do that and I’ll make sure, from now on, she always has an escort. Although, I imagine when Colin hears this, he’ll arrange for around the clock protection for her.”

“That’s my hope. I’ve been encouraging her to tell him.”

“We’d probably better get out there; she’s probably looking for you. Her shift should have ended five minutes ago,” Alex said as he looked at his cell phone.

They walked out of the private dining room together and, sure enough, Beth was looking for her.”

“Oh, there you are. I couldn’t find you. Hi, Alex.”

“Hi, Beth. Are you ready to go? I’m going to walk out to the parking lot with the two of you,” he informed her.

Beth looked from one to the other. “You filled him in?” she asked.

“Yes, I thought it was necessary but I’ve sworn him to secrecy,” her sister replied.

“It’s okay, Beth. I’ll keep your secret, as long as you tell Colin tonight, at dinner,” Alex said.

“I’ve already promised M.K. I would. Thank you, Alex.”

The three of them walked outside into the late afternoon Texas sunshine. Alex looked around to make sure no one suspicious was around before allowing the girls to proceed to their cars. He walked Beth to hers and made sure she was securely buckled in and the doors to her vehicle locked before he escorted M.K. to hers and did the same. He leaned down and told Mary Kate, “Call me when you get to the house.”

“I will,” she replied as she rolled up the window and waved to her sister to leave first. She followed Beth out of the parking lot and all the way to their parents’ house, where both girls still lived.

Safely inside the house with the doors locked, she phoned Alex to let him know they had arrived. Turning to Beth, she said, “You need to take a load off. Go take a hot bath and relax. I’ll brew some of that herbal tea you like and we’ll have a cup when you come back down.”

“Thank you, sis. I hate that this is happening two days before your wedding but I love that you’re taking care of me. I’ll be back down soon.”

Mary Kate watched her sister walk slowly up the stairs, shoulders slumped. She sighed as she headed for the kitchen. She was going to get to the bottom of this. No one terrorized her sister and got by with it.

 

 

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.”

About the Author:

Laurel and Maggie have a winner!

11291754_10205498925729686_501788990_nI’m so pleased to tell you about a new release from two fellow Blushing Books authors today! 
Realizing Her Dream by Maggie Ryan and Laurel Jane Released on June 5th !! Best-selling author Maggie Ryan and newcomer Laurel Jane have put their heads and their pens together to come up with this, an exciting tale of romance, lust, love, spanking and adventure. If the subject of domestic discipline or explicit erotica offends you, please do not read this book. Their book is now available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and the Blushing Books Website. Here’s a little about the new bestseller!
When Casey Reeves loses her husband to an unexpected heart attack, she gives herself a new mantra: To live life as if it were an amazing adventure, as every single day matters. Unfortunately, one of the things on her bucket list looks far better on paper, and when Casey finds herself up in a plane, strapped to a tall, handsome man, about to undertake her very first parachute jump, she realizes that she’d do just about anything to be able to back out. Paul Jackson has been a parachute instructor ever since he retired early, and has seen his fair share of terrified women, but when Casey hysterically promises to do anything he asks in return for being able to return to solid ground safely—even let him spank her—he’s amused, and not a little intrigued. He’s also more than willing to accept her bargain. Casey finds herself taking a leap of faith—in more ways than one. The two begin their journey together, spending some time on a luxurious yacht, in a tropical rainforest and even in a ranch in outback Australia, as they work their way through her list. What they discover is that life has a tendency not to follow carefully designed plans. With Paul beside her, Casey quickly learns that living every day to its fullest entails far more than she’d ever imagined. And by her side throughout the action, danger and laughter is a man who not only has no hesitation in reddening her bottom when she deserves it, but can send her soaring into ecstasy with a single look or a touch of his hand. Finding a new love to equal—or even exceed—her old one was not even on Casey’s bucket list but now that she has, can they make it work? Is Paul really the man of her dreams? .
Excerpt  (PG)
“I’m very pleased to see you are still here,” he said. Casey attempted to think of something witty to say, but every word stuck in her throat. The only thing she could do was nod. “Ready?” She thought about quipping that she had been born ready but for some reason, the man towering over her looked quite capable of making her prove it. “Um, to go celebrate? Is that what you mean?” “Believe me, Casey, you’ll always understand exactly what I mean.” He paused to hold out his hand and she took it automatically. “We’ll have some dinner, and then for dessert—well, at least for my dessert anyway—I will give you the spanking you’ve been promised. This is your last chance to back out. If you agree, and by that I mean agree to both dinner and having your bottom blistered, I’ll pick you up tonight. Now tell me, are you ready?”
