An Escape #WIPitUp


We’re finally back with WIP it up Wednesday and we have a brand new book to introduce. If you’ve been waiting for another Western, you’re in luck. We’ll be sure to share more but for now he’s a little teaser. Don’t forget to see what everyone else has been working on over at the Wip It Up Blog.

“Whatever are we gonna do with that child? Jude? Are you listening to me?”

“Yea, I’m listening,” the old man sighed, shaking his head.’

“Put down your carving and talk to me. She skipped out of church again and was seen throwing dice behind the parish with those boys! How are we ever going to get her married off when she behaves so?”

Jude Weston stared at the pile of shavings under his knife. “About that- I got a message from Old Judge Taylor the other day. He said his grandson was back from the city. He sold his law practice so that he could get hitched and move out to Wyoming to begin again. Apparently, he was asking about Wildemina.”

“No! I will not have our granddaughter be thrown to the wolves. Especially that kind of wolf. You can’t trust a lawyer.”

“What other choice do we have? I’m too old to take a switch to her backside, not that it ever did any good. She has the kind of spirit that would do good in the wild regions of the states. The man’s got money and an education, and he is willing to take a bride if she’s got some spunk. The boy remembered her from when they was kids. I’m a guessing her forgot about her looks.”

“If he is a hideous toad, then looks might not matter. I can’t agree to this.”

“She has chased off every suitor in the county with her attitude. If this man is willing to take her on, he might be her only chance of getting away from this place. She hates it here, just like her mama did.”


Coming Soon!

Daddy Time #WIPitUp Wednesday


Have you been wondering about our little girl Baylor? Hayden? Jake? Wait no further the sequel to Moving A Little Heart is well underway! With two new additions, I might add. Here is a little snippet of the WIP following the most adorable family. Make sure you visit the #WIPitup Blog to see what everyone else is working on.

Hayden leaned over to kiss her forehead. “You need some Daddy time, Ladybug. Jake and I are off next weekend. Let’s have Terry and Matt watch the kids and the three of us can get away for a long overdue vacation.”

“A whole weekend? I don’t know…”

“Bay, the twins are a year old now and you have not left them for more than a few hours at a time, even for your photography assignments. The guys are the best baby sitters on the planet, and you know it.”

“I just feel so guilty. You know that my mother used to leave us alone all the time and I don’t want to do that with our children.”

“Sweetheart, you need some time away to recharge,” he interrupted her. “Jake and I also need some alone time with you. It’s been two months since the three of us have had intimate time together.”

“And that night ended with you two getting up to take care of two little temper tantrums,” she said with a light laugh.

“Yeah, it kind of spoiled the mood,” he laughed back. “Seriously, we need that connection with you. As for leaving the girls with sitters, I swear that this is nothing like what your mother used to do. You aren’t running off to go drinking and smoking dope, nor are you leaving them unsupervised by an adult. T-bear and Matt are part of their family, just like Jake and I am. They would give their lives for these girls and you know it.”

Looking into his brown eyes, she nodded. He was right. “Okay, but only for one night.”

“No, it will be for two nights and three days. You aren’t nursing them anymore, so you can’t use that as an excuse. Right, my mini-mes?” he asked the babies, his mouth again filled with two little hands. They squeaked happily at the nick-name.

“One night and two days.”

“Nope. This is not open for negotiation. What?” He put his ear to Jaycee’s mouth and then to Haylee. “Really? The girls said you’ve been really cranky and that the daddies have some spanking to do.”

“They did not. And no spanking. Just loves.”

Make A Wish #WIPitUp Wednesday


We have a brand new story to share today. It is tentatively named A Little Wish Upon A Star. It’s hopefully going to zoom through the editing process. Here is a little introduction to our little heroine Tabby. We’ll have much more to share in the near future. Don’t forget to see what the other authors are working on over at the WIP It Up Wednesdays Blog.

A Little Wish Upon A Star


Her hands trembled with hope as she slid the message, written with a purple crayon, into the glass soda bottle that she found outside the steps of the compound. It read:

If there is anybody out there who wants a little girl, please find me and take me home with you. I promise to be good.  Here’s my picture and a piece of my hair to help you know who I am.


Underneath the message, she drew a picture of a cat, whiskers and all.  It was the best one she had drawn and she hoped that someone up there, somewhere in the universe, would find her message and rescue her. She sealed it with a cork that the nice astronaut from NASA gave her and smiled gratefully when he lifted her up to the small pod so that she could put her message inside with her very own, tiny hands.

She smiled at the kind man who squeezed her shoulder with his big hand and together, they watched in silence as the vessel was launched into the star-studded sky.

“If you could touch one of those stars, which one would you chose?” he asked, kneeling by her side.

She pointed to a sparkling violet one in the middle of a dense cluster. “That one. Can you see it?”

“I do. It’s lovely. Why did you chose that one?”

She looked at him with an expression of gravity. “Because it’s purple.  A purple star has to be the very best of all of them.”

“How about you close your eyes and make a wish on it?”

“Let’s both make a wish. I know what mine is gonna be. How about yours?” Tabby asked.

“My wish would be that you will find everything you ever need to make you happy, little one.”

“You could take me home with you,” she suggested eagerly.

He hugged her and sighed. “I wish I could, baby. I truly wish I could. Let’s make our wishes on that star and see what happens, okay?”

Tabby nodded and squeeze her eyes shut, crossing her fingers and sent a wish upon that beautiful purple star with all the hope and power that is found only in the heart of a child…


Coming May 23rd

Needs #WIPitUp Wednesday


Curious about Dorian, Merry and Fifty? What happened after the festival? Wait no longer, Annie’s story is next in the Graye’s Maid series. Here is a snippet of her story but make sure to check out The Whip Master if you haven’t met the beloved characters yet. There’s so many more stories to share! Don’t forget to see what the other authors are working on over at the WIP It Up Wednesdays Blog.

Mastering Annie

A life with Greg Carmichael could be the ‘happily ever after’ of which 22 year old Annie Graye has always dreamed. Albeit an unorthodox way to begin a relationship, Annie’s contract has been purchased by the handsome and wealthy restaurateur. In the brief time they’d spent together, Annie had felt an undeniable attraction and connection to his quietly commanding presence, especially after feeling his belt against her bare backside.

At the age of nineteen, Annie had arrived at Graye Manor a scared, insecure, homeless girl. Three years later she departs to begin a life of her own, now a confident young woman after her time spent under the training, mentorship, and care of Head Master Dorian Graye and his wife. With them, she’d found a family and a home, as well as receiving the training to become a Graye’s Maid – specially trained women skilled not only in the traditional skills of domestic help, but also the BDSM lifestyle.

For Greg, it’s neither Annie’s domestic skills, nor the terms of her contract for which he has purchased her – he seeks a submissive to call his own, not because of a piece of paper, but to be his – in heart, mind and soul. From the time he first met Annie, he believed she could be his ‘one.’ Of great importance to Greg is his family, especially his little sister – Mel.

Almost immediately, Annie and the younger girl strike up a friendship, and in her Annie recognizes the heart of another true submissive. Soon she finds herself taking the young woman under her wing, helping to mentor her and provide a positive influence and example, as Greg steps in to provide his troubled young sister with the accountability and direction she desperately needs, as well as a very sore bottom!

As her feelings for Greg deepen, Annie strives to please and be of service to him, but fearing she cannot be everything he wants. Greg has dark passions and desires, and Annie questions her ability to trust and surrender to a man she is falling in love with. With every passing day she finds herself striving to be better, not only as a submissive for Greg, and example for Mel, but for herself. The examination of what it means to be a true submissive, and of service to others, specifically this one incredible man, will lead Annie to face her fears on a journey of self-discovery, and hopefully to her own ‘happily ever after.’


“What would you like him to do?” Annie asked. The question was loaded. She knew the answer, but would Mel admit to it herself?


“Okay, let me rephrase this. What do you need him to do?”

“I don’t know,” Mel shrugged.

“Be honest. This conversation is not going anywhere. I promise.”

Mel sighed. “I guess I need structure and boundaries, and more severe consequences if I mess up.”

“Why can’t you say what you really want?”

“Because grown women don’t come out and just say stuff like that.”

“Fine, then I’ll say it. You want to be punished for your transgressions. By the way you were talking to Greg, my guess is that you want to be taken in hand and spanked. Am I right?”

“I can’t believe you just said that out loud.”

“Why shouldn’t I? It’s true, and there is nothing wrong with that need. You acted like a brat to get a reaction. The only proper reaction would be a spanking and then have your nose set right into a corner. Act like a child and be treated like a child. That is what you want, and like I said, there is nothing wrong with it.”

“There isn’t?”

“Not at all. Even I have my moments when I feel that way. Especially when I’m scared and insecure. I want a man who I respect to put me in my place and reassure me that things will get better.”

“Then why did you hook up with Greg?”

“There is much, much more to Greg than meets the eye. I would never even think of crossing his path if he is displeased about something. Talk to him. I will bet you anything that he understands.”
