Finding Forever is Live!

Three sisters, separated at birth, identical down to their DNA. For over thirty years, they lived without knowledge of the each other’s existence until one fateful night changed everything.

Now, a new revelation is testing the bonds of their relationships. Hidden family secrets and broken promises threaten to tear them apart and destroy the family they’ve just begun to build. And it’s not just their relationships with each other on the line.

Can they work past their differences and face these trials together? Or will these three sisters become nothing more than strangers who happen to look alike once again?

Publisher’s Note: The conclusion of the Missing Pieces saga contains mystery, secrets, and a theme of power exchange.

You might have heard by now that I co-wrote a four book series with Stella and Rachel. The Missing Pieces Series is about identical triplets who were separated at birth. I give Teagan, the bad ass, former foster kid turned police detective and Luca, the former Navy Seal team leader, their voices throughout the series.

I had a lot of fun writing these two characters. Their banter back and forth was comical. The real joy however, came from the development of the relationship between the girls. It is my sincere hope that the readers could feel Teagan’s struggles, her hope and her joy in the raging internal conflict that she endured. I hope they fell in love with her as much as I did. Teagan’s book is here: http://mybook.to/Teagan

In book four, Teagan really struggles with her engagement to Luca. The permanency of marriage. The commitment on both partner’s parts. She also fights with the idea of what family and unconditional love look like. One thing she is able to come to grips with right away is her acceptance of her of discipline from her Daddy. Here is a scene I wrote in our NEW RELEASE Finding Forever: Free on KU, $2.99 to buy


Pushing herself off his lap, she stood and walked out of the room. The punishment routine was part of their ritual. Down the hallway, her feet pitter pattering against the cool wood, she turned into the master bedroom. She heard Luca letting the dog out into the backyard, Trident was protective of her; he didn’t appreciate it when Luca spanked her. She removed her clothing, before going into the bathroom. Teagan stared at the woman in the mirror, the strong, brave woman who had endured a beginning full of trauma. The little girl who had lost her mother a mere thirty minutes after her birth and had been separated from her sisters, the one who had overcome adversities and trials, who had risen, pulling herself up by her bootstraps.

The one strong enough to admit that she needed a warrior to tame her, to hold on to her, to keep her from shattering apart by her own hands. It was okay to need another person in her life, to love and lean on someone else. It was okay to be a consenting adult who wanted this dynamic and yearned for the kind of give and take having a Daddy Dominant brought. She wasn’t going to feel guilty about being cherished and disciplined, spoiled and held accountable, loved beyond measure by her own protector just because it wasn’t the normal relationship. No, her needs were different, and that was okay. Her big, bad, former Navy SEAL was coming into the room in a minute to spank the ever-loving daylights out of her behind, and she knew she deserved each and every swat. She craved it, and after two days of not sleeping, she could guarantee, tonight, she would sleep peacefully, because everything would be right in the world again. It would be reset. That’s just how this worked. It was how he worked. How they worked. She was giving herself permission to accept it and to stop running away.

The corner was every bit as humiliating as it ever was—humbling. This time, it was also peaceful. For the first time, Teagan didn’t resent standing there and waiting for him. She didn’t count the cracks in the paint or mentally think about rearranging the furniture. She didn’t make a checklist of paperwork she had to do at work or chores that needed to get done at home or any of the other dozens of things that her brain normally wondered about as she stood there, waiting for her executioner to come into the room and call her to him. No, this time, she thought about Luca.

Finding Teagan Excerpt!


Here is an excerpt from my new release Finding Teagan: http://mybook.to/Teagan

“What made you join the Navy?” Teagan spoke first, the silence getting to her.

“I love my family and my small hometown, but I needed more. We were the typical middle class family. Dad wanted me to take over the ranch, but I wanted something… more. I was the captain of my high school football team, and during my junior year, college recruiters started knocking. College was never on my radar. I had enough of sitting behind a desk in high school. My senior year, an Air Force recruiter called. It was the first time I had thought about joining the military as an option. I’ve always been the competitive type, so I went online and did some research. Navy SEALs were the best of the best, the hardest to make. If I was going to do something, I was going to do it all the way.”

“That doesn’t surprise me at all,” Teagan replied, feeling Luca’s arm drape around her shoulder, giving her a light squeeze. He pulled her close to him, and Teagan felt herself stiffen.

“Why do you keep fighting this, darlin’?” Luca asked.

“I don’t know what you mean.”

“I don’t like you lying to me. You know exactly what I mean.” Luca’s dominant tone sent butterflies into Teagan’s belly.

“Trident has been whining at the door. Apparently, you went outside and forgot about him,” Octavius called from the front porch. Teagan smiled widely as the German Shepherd came bounding toward them, grateful for the interruption.

“Traitor,” Luca muttered when, instead of going straight to his owner, Titan nudged his large, hairy head underneath Teagan’s hand.

“He knows I love him,” she said, petting Titan. Standing up, Luca offered Teagan his hands. As she allowed him to help her stand, she was unprepared to be pulled into a deep embrace.

“You are freezing, darlin’,” Luca said, wrapping his arms even tighter around her. The chill she was feeling instantly disappeared. He lowered his lips and kissed her forehead gently before speaking again.

“Next time you decide to go out into the cold, make sure you dress appropriately. I don’t like my girl putting herself at risk,” Luca scolded. “In fact, once you stop fighting us being together, this type of behavior will earn you a nice, warm bottom to go with your ice-cold fingers.” He let her go then, and she rushed back toward the house, his laughter following behind.

Dammit. For the umpteenth time since meeting him, Teagan was reminded why she needed to keep a spare, clean pair of underwear in her car.

Super Daddies!

I was incredibly honored to take part in Super Daddies. The idea started with a group of us messing around on a FB post and ended up as an Amazon #1 New Release and a #2 Comedy Ranking!

Super Daddies includes seven books in one amazing anthology. My book, “Daddy’s Justice” is a play on Norse Mythology.

When Loki and his dark forces ascend on Midgard, my team is dispatched. The mission: Track down the valkyrie demi-god, Morrigan, and protect her, no matter the cost. The problem: Morrigan has no idea what she is, she doesn’t cooperate, and I, the God of Justice, am not accustomed to disobedience. Also, falling in love wasn’t part of the assignment. Loki is unstoppable; he’ll kill her if he can, but from the moment she calls me Daddy, everything changes. Now, to get to her, he’ll have to go through me… Fat chance.

Here is an excerpt:

Morrigan has never felt pain before. Not ever. That was until Forseti, the Norse God of Justice, spanked her.He smacked my ass over and over again, and for the first time in my life, I wished I couldn’t feel the pain. Why now? Why did my pain sensors suddenly have to work?His hand cracked over and over on my butt, from the bottom of my lower back down the underside curve. He left no spot uncovered. When he paused, I was sure he was finally done. Taking a deep breath to steady myself, I steeled myself so that I wouldn’t cry.Forseti lifted his knee, shifting me upwards and began to attack the crest between my butt and my thighs. I keened at the new sensation of pain, even more intense than what had built on my cheeks and threw my hands back to protect myself. He captured them in the hand resting on the small of my back and held them there.“You don’t block the Hand of Justice from delivering its punishment.” The disapproval was clear in his tone. I now questioned every single character in my books. I had longed for a relationship like they had, to be over a lap receiving a disciplinary spanking for being naughty. Now I knew I had romanticized the pain. It hurt a lot more than I had ever imagined it would… and there was nothing I could do to stop it.For the first time in my life, I wasn’t in control. I couldn’t move off his lap, I couldn’t put my now trapped hands back to protect myself. All I could do was lie there and feel. I felt helpless as the swats continued to come down. He moved just a bit to the top of my thighs, and I lost the fight; the dam broke. Tears spilled over my cheeks, and I sobbed. His hand continued to blister my thighs. That’s when it happened. The words came rushing out, like my tears, unexpected and uncontrolled.“Please, Daddy. Stop!”

“Ok, Annie, come to me.” His deep voice interrupted her thoughts. She turned and found him sitting in a tall backed chair in the middle of the room. She walked over to him, unsure of what to do next. “Annie.” His tone held warning. “It was only two directions.”

“But you have a kilt on.”

“And?” Annie saw by the scrunched together brows that she had actually confused him.

“You can’t spank me with a kilt on! What if it rides up?” Alastair laughed then, a deep, throaty laugh.

“It won’t ride up. Now enough delays, over my lap.” He reached out and grabbed her arm, pulling her right over his bent knees.

“Why are you getting this spanking, Addie girl?” she heard Brad ask from somewhere in the distance. Crack!A hard swat landed right where her butt met her leg. It hurt, and she gasped from the stinging pain. It was nothing like she had expected.

“Addisyn, I asked you a question,” she heard Brad ask in the tone she had grown all too familiar with.

“Ummm, because I called myself fat?” she muttered. Swat! Swat!Two more hard swats landed on the same spot. She thought his aim must be off. She had a huge butt, and he wasn’t swatting it. “Ouch!” she yelled. “Your aim sucks! That isn’t even my butt!” Maybe those were not the right words to shout at a man who was spanking you, she thought, a second after they left her mouth. He gave her another firm swat right in the same spot. Damn! That hurt!

“My aim is just fine.” She heard a small chuckle. “This spot happens to get attention a lot faster than the meat of your butt. How did I tell you to address me during discipline?”

“Oh.”

“Oh. Yes, oh. You have one more try before I change my mind and remove your jeans. I want an answer, and I want a correct one. Why are you over my knee right now, little girl?”

Addie heard ‘little girl’ and her belly flip flopped. The modern, career girl, Addie would have spouted something about equal rights and degradation, but in this position, with this man, it felt more like an endearment.

“I called myself a fat, disgusting slob, Sir!” Addie hoped Brad was proud of her for addressing him correctly.

“Do you know what I think about my girlfriend calling herself those disgusting words?” he asked. “Let me show you.” Addie barely had time to register that he used the term ‘girl‐friend’ for a second time before his palm was coming down in a steady tempo.

Over and over again, his hand rose and fell, landing first on one cheek and then the other cheek. He kept up his rhythm, like the swinging of a pendulum, and she had no time to prepare before the next swat came down. A fire was burning in her behind and she was not prepared for it. No amount of story reading could stir her imagination enough to imagine the pain that was now spreading like butter melting on hot toast throughout her lower region.

“It hurts!” she cried out, much like every other woman who had ever been spanked by her man.

“It is supposed to hurt, or it wouldn’t be effective.” He responded to her cries without pausing in tempo. He kept it up and landed another dozen swats, and she started to really squirm.

“Okay, okay!” Addie cried out. “I won’t call myself fat again.” She didn’t get a response other than a chuckle.

Small excerpt: 

Amy was having a hard time following his sentences. She was still stuck on the emotional rollercoaster of the past few hours.

Ben must have recognized the glazed over look in her eyes, for his next words sent chills down her spine. “You need a spanking, little girl. Now, I have more than enough to punish you for, but I don’t think that’s the type of spanking you need, right now. I think you need your Daddy to dominate you and to help you release some of the built-up emotions and misplaced guilt. You need a long session.” He looked at her and made the decision. “Yes, that is exactly what you need.”

Amy felt the butterflies of anticipation flying around inside of her. She wasn’t sure exactly what she needed, other than she needed to not feel this way anymore.

“Here is what we are going to do, little girl. You’re going to go on up to our room and take off all of your clothing. You’re going to put yourself in the corner, exactly as Daddy likes you, and wait for me. I’ll be up in a minute. I want you in the right mindset, baby. You are going to submit to Daddy, tonight, and let him help you release some of the weight you are carrying. I’m strong, baby girl. I can take all that weight and carry it for you. Will you let me do this for you?”

A short nod was all Amy could muster. 

“Good girl. Go on up, I’ll be up in a minute.”

Power Exchange, Spanking and Domestic Discipline

Good morning friends and readers!

First, I wanted to say that I can and do write very clean, very sweet romances without sex and without spanking or BDSM elements. I am currently writing one for submission into an anthology. However, most of what you will find under this pen name are books that include power exchange elements and sex.

The number one objective of my books, all of my books, is to have a engaging plot that makes the reader want to keep reading from one page to the next. I hope to develop strong characters that the reader wants to befriend and wishes were real. Everything else is a bonus.

I chose to write under a pen name for several reasons. The biggest reason is because I do write a lot of erotic power exchange type romances. Some people judge that genre pretty harshly. For instance, I’ve seen reviews on several of my peer’s books that show disgust over the fact that the hero of the story has spanked the heroine. All of my books that include this will have a disclaimer, so if that is not something you want to read, you can choose not to purchase the book.

What is a relationship with power exchange? Power exchange is a dynamic where one person gives up control to the other person. The amount of power they give up is negotiated within the confines of the relationship. In the BDSM realm, there are many titles for this. Master and slaves (M/s) tend to have the largest shift in power. A slave often gives over most of their control to their Master. Dominant and submissive (D/s) partners tend to give over less control. Each dynamic is unique to the couple. In some M/s relationships that includes choosing what the other partner wears, eats and does. In many D/s relationships there tends to be more limits on what the Dom can control. The lines may be blurry depending on the individual couple and how they personally define their relationship. Notice- I said, how much control the bottom (submissive, slave etc.) decides they want to give up. In ALL of my books there is CONSENT. The woman decides that she wants this type of relationship dynamic and understands that she can leave at anytime. It is NEVER forced. Consent, Communication and Safety are ALWAYS the focus of healthy power exchange relationships.

Domestic discipline (DD) is comparable to a d/s relationship. In domestic discipline, there is an HOH. Head of the House. The Hoh sets the tone for the relationship. In my books, the HOH is always male. He has a set of rules or expectations for his partner to follow. When the partner doesn’t follow these rules, she gets disciplined. The discipline is often a spanking but can be many different things. Like M/s or D/s a domestic discipline relationship is defined by the partners. In many DD relationships, the power exchange is much less than you would see in a traditional BDSM M/s or D/s relationship.

Why would anyone want to be in this type of relationship? Some of it is physical desires. Bondage, Discipline, Sadism and Masochism is arousing to many people. Outside of the physical arousal, power exchange is freeing. I’ve been in practicing BDSM/DD relationships my entire adult life… since I was sixteen actually. One of the biggest draws to me is the open communication that comes with it. In these type of relationships, you are always talking. You talk about what limits you have, what you would like to try, how you feel about what is going on. Another big reason people practice domestic discipline in their relationships is the balance that it brings. When someone messes up, it is dealt with immediately. There are real consequences and afterwards everything is forgiven, there is a clean slate and it isn’t brought up again. There isn’t weeks of guilt, snapping at each other or awkwardness. There is no pouting, silent treatments or yelling matches. That is extremely freeing. In most relationships in life, someone is in charge. You have a boss at work and a set of rules. You can’t drop the F bomb in a meeting with a client or you will be fired. Rules and consequences. It is everywhere you look. In power exchange relationships, such as domestic discipline, that concept carries over into the intimate partnership of a couple.

For us, a domestic discipline relationship accomplishes many things. It accomplishes balance, harmony, better communication and passion. After many conversations with friends, I have found that our sex life is much more active than most in our age group, I often wonder if our power exchange dynamic plays into that.

Power Exchange is very sexy to me. One of the reasons why I enjoy writing about it, besides having lived it myself, is the beauty behind it. Power exchange is two consenting adults negotiating the way they want their relationship to look. Some of my novels, the exchange is 51% to 49% these are often domestic discipline stories. The man has rules or expectations and if the woman doesn’t follow them, she finds herself over his knee.

Some of the more BDSM themed books are more of a 60/40 split. I rarely write Master/slave books and tend to stick to the confines of Dominant/submissive. There will be times when I write harder, darker bdsm M/s books, those will come with lots of disclaimers.

I have found that in giving up some control, you gain mass amounts of freedom. The forgiveness and open lines of communication that come with domestic discipline or bdsm relationships, done correctly and safely, is absolutely beautiful. I will never encourage domestic violence, abuse or manipulation nor will any of my books suggest such things. I abhor how some of the media has made these types of relationships out to be abusive, when, this couldn’t be farther from the truth. It is my hope that when reading my novels you can see the romance in the dance in what we call power exchange.

One of the biggest misnomers about submissive women is that they are weak. That couldn’t be further from the truth. My heroines are feisty, strong and intelligent. They are not doormats or have submissive personalities. They don’t give their submission easily, the man has to earn it and continue to earn it. They aren’t submissive to just anyone or lots of anyone’s, only to ONE person. My heroines often don’t even know they have the capability or desire to submit until it is waived in front of them and they taste the delicious freedom that comes with that submission. Don’t ever mistake submission for weakness.

Some of my heroes are in very traditionally masculine jobs- police officers, military and firefighters. They have big muscles and a lot of physical strength.

Some of my heroes are geeky. They are super intelligent and quite. They are thin in stature but not weak, never weak.

My men all have one thing in common- they are in charge in their relationship. They are not abusive, they are not mean or cruel. They are consistent in their dominance and steady in their leadership. They adore the heroine they are paired with and always put her and her needs first. They are respectful, thoughtful and make amazing partners.
