Saturday Spanks + the House of Pain release tour!

Happy Saturday Spanks, everyone! I'm delighted to announce that my new book - The House of Pain is now available for sale on the Kindle store, and also Smashwords. I had a great time writing this book - in part because it is set in Toronto, which happens to be the city I live in. It was hard work not to put in a list of my favourite bars in the city into the book, but I held off. 

The Excerpt: 

“First things first, a birthday spanking…” he says, his voice dripping with anticipation. I grin; his voice promises pleasure. “Count them for me, Sara,” he orders.

“Yes, Doug,” I say, my voice compliant. How quickly he has me in that space; that space where the only thing that matters is that I do as he instructs; where his pleasure is my pleasure, and I ache to serve him.

Whap. His firm hand descends on my tender ass; and I jump a little in my bindings. “One…” I count, while his hands run all over my behind, stroking it, parting the cheeks so my twinkling asshole is exposed.

His hand descends again, and pleasure courses through me. “Two…” I moan, a moan of longing and arousal. Now his finger is in my ass, and he wiggles it around, widening the passage. I will myself to relax my muscles. In this, in the dungeon, I trust Doug absolutely; he knows what I need, and how much to push me.

Sara White is outwardly a good girl; she follows the rules; works in a professional office; has a boyfriend who treats her with consideration. However, deep inside her, there’s a craving for pain, a desire to be spanked and whipped, to be submissive, to be controlled. 

One day, she walks into the House of Pain, a sex store in Toronto that also does shows in the back, where women are whipped and spanked in front of an audience. Transfixed by the idea, she signs up. 

Doug Patterson has met Sara at work, but discovers a whole new side of her when he sees her at the House of Pain. He approaches her and suggests Sara become his submissive. Sara is attracted to Doug; but afraid of complication. 

Will Sara surrender to Doug, and yield to her desire to be submissive?
