The Ultimate Betrayal #SatSpanks

Saturday Spankings-Val Heart Paddles-rev

Happy Saturday everyone!  I got signed up just under the wire this week.  I’m sorry for those of you looking for a spanking scene.  My latest release, Blessed Betrayal, is not really a spanking story like most of my other books, but if you want a feel good book that will take you through the darkness into an awesome HEA, this is the book for you.

Today’s snippet is from a pivotal scene in the book.  Because of some of the twists in the story, I’ve purposefully held back some of the info, not wanting to give away too much, but I think everyone who reads the blurb figures out Cali’s husband cheats on her.  Today’s snippet is the start of Cali finding out about his betrayal with a visit from the police in the middle of the night.

Snippet:

“We normally don’t recommend family members identify their loved ones when the bodies have been traumatized by high speed accidents, but we honestly would appreciate it if you could accompany us to the morgue.”

He hesitated long enough that Officer Jackson completed the request. “I’m afraid your husband wasn’t alone in the car at the time of the accident. His companion didn’t have any identification in the vehicle that they were able to find on the scene. If you feel up to it, we could sure use your help in identifying the other victim of the accident.”

Other victim. Accident. Cali’s mind was reeling. It was hard for her to focus.   Had he been trying to come home tonight after all? If so, why had he been going in the wrong direction? And who was in the car with him? The officers gave her time to mull the devastating news around long enough that she started to formulate her own suspicions.

“It was a woman?” She finally asked, although it came out as more of a statement.

“I’m afraid so, ma’am. We came here unsure if anyone would be home. We thought perhaps it had been you in the car with him. Is there anyone else you can think of that he might have been with around midnight?”

Cali knew. She just knew. Still, it didn’t make it easier to say. “No one he should have been with, no.”

Blessed Betrayal - High Resolution

Never fear.  Cali gets even.  I’d love it if you’d check out the story, on sale here for only $.99 and I just signed it up for KU so you can even read it for FREE there.

Blurb:

Calista Bennett was supposed to be living happily ever after with her handsome husband, Kevin. But underneath the perfect exterior of their marriage lays an ugly truth Cali can’t admit to anyone.

Across town, Nicholas Mikos’ marriage isn’t going much better.   When Veronica had shown up on his doorstep with the most wonderful secret years before, he’d planned their own HEA. Now years later, he feels his marriage slipping away and is helpless to stop it.

In one moment, all of their lives come crashing together, changing life forever.   Has the universe conspired to bring two people together who deserve to be happy, or will fate deliver a final blow, sentencing them to a lifetime of sorrow?   Can true love rise out of the ashes of the ultimate betrayal?

Sweet Revenge ~ Blessed Betrayal #SatSpanks

Saturday Spankings-Val Heart Paddles-rev

Happy Saturday! Thanks for dropping by.  I’m celebrating the release of my first self-published book this week.  Blessed Betrayal is now available for only $.99 for a limited time.  It is a bit different than most of my other books in that it is not a BDSM/DD title, but it is a good old fashioned tale of sweet revenge.   I’m finding it hard to do much marketing for this book as there are many twists and turns that will keep you on the edge and so of course, I don’t want to give too much away.  Just suffice it to say, you should find yourself cheering along with the good guys in this one if I did my job right.

Blessed Betrayal - High Resolution

I’m sharing a snippet of Cali and Nick’s first kiss.  They are couple you will be rooting for throughout to get their HEA.  They have both been through a tragedy and have just been friends up until this pivotal scene.

Teaser:  The worst part of having the person who betrayed you die is they can’t see how happy you are after they’re gone.

Snippet:

It started as a chaste kiss, but didn’t take long to escalate. Cali could taste the ale Nick had been drinking earlier as his tongue slipped between her lips.   Her knees grew weak beneath her and he strengthened the hold he had on her, ensuring she wouldn’t topple over. He shuffled them backwards until Cali pressed against the unforgiving front door at her back. Nick’s solid body mashed against her.

By the time Nick pulled out of their kiss, they were both short of breath. Cali kept her eyes closed, afraid she’d see reproach in his eyes. “Cali, baby, open your eyes.”

When she did, he looked more in control than he had at any time since she’d met him.   The desire she saw on his face confused her.

“I’m sorry. I shouldn’t take advantage of you like this. You have enough shit on your plate to deal with without adding this to the pile.” Figures he would apologize.

“What exactly is this?”

“A mistake, that’s what it is.”

“Ouch. So I’m a mistake?”

“Dammit, Cali. Stop putting words in my mouth. You know that’s not what I meant.”

“Do I? Listen, I get it. It’s complicated, but I just thought…”

“Stop. It’s the Cosmos talking.”

“I’m not that drunk, Nick. I’m lonely. I know you could make me feel better.”

“Maybe, but you’d only feel better for tonight. Tomorrow, you’d regret it.”

“How do you know that?” Dare she finish her thought?   “I’ve thought of you a lot since we had dinner. It’s helped.”

“Oh, Cali, I’ve thought of you too, but we’re both so raw right now. I don’t want either of us to get hurt worse than we already are.”

J=Jaded Justice #SpankA2Z #NSFW

A2Z-logo2015

 

Welcome back to the A to Z blog hop and my challenge to write an original free erotic short for each letter of the alphabet (fair warning, I may skip one or two letters – is that cheating?) The catch is every single sentence must have a least one word in it that starts with that day’s letter. I just hope you all will forgive me if I use the same word a few times due to my alphabetical limitations. 🙂  Today I’m bringing you a nice little story of good old fashioned revenge.

A huge shout out to Jennifer Bene for editing today’s post.  Also, don’t miss the chance to win a $10 Amazon gift card. Check out rules at the end of the post.

J is for Jaded Justice

Julia pulled the faux-fur collar of her jacket up around her neck in an attempt to block out the cold January wind. She’d been waiting outside the judicial building over an hour for the jerk to exit. It galled her to stand by and watch the joke of jury members streaming out of the building. Their jovial voices carried across the street as the horde of women congratulated themselves on a job well done.   It made her want to jump in her jeep and run them all over.

The judge came out next. His jezebel mistress joined him as he jumped in his Jaguar and they sped off to points unknown. Julia had investigated Judge Johnson thoroughly during the trial when it became apparent justice was not going to be done. She had enough juice on the good judge to ruin not only his marriage, but also his twenty-five year career on the bench if it came to it.   The judge’s future depended on how the rest of this January night played out.

Finally, just after five, James Jackson himself stepped out onto the courthouse steps. He was joined by his prick of a lawyer. The two jerks looked joyous as they congratulated each other on their triumph over the judge and jury by convincing them that he hadn’t sexually assaulted Julia at last June’s company picnic.

Her memories were jarred back to that night when he’d not only brutally raped her, but he’d taken joy in restraining and belting her until she was reduced to a jumbled mess. And now, just because the asshole was handsome and had enough money to buy a jury, Julia was forced to walk away empty-handed.

She had lost her job first. At her initial report of the owner’s atrocious behavior, the junior HR assistant had been instructed to cut Julia loose without any justification.

Next she’d lost her engagement to Jerry, who had believed the ridiculous rumors that Julia was fired because her long-time affair with James had come to an end.   With her fiancé went their shared apartment and the Jetta he’d given her as an engagement present leaving her to drive an old jalopy of a jeep her brother had lying around.

The court case was supposed to bring her justice, but instead it brought more of the same injustice. Luckily, she realized early on that James Jackson had too much money and power to ever beat him fair and square.

Julia watched the newly acquitted jerk jump in the back of his waiting limo and drive away. She had become so jaded that she had to remember that if all went well, by this time tomorrow, she’d be laying on a beach in Jamaica, her bank account full, and James Jackson would be wishing the jury had left his ass in jail.

She tailed the jet-black car until it pulled into the circle driveway of his spacious home in Jersey City.   She was lucky it wasn’t a gated community, and that James lived alone, or the jig might have been up.   Julia parked the jeep down the street, grabbing the duffle with all the tools she needed, and walked back in time to see the limo driving away.

She boldly walked up the front walk and, before she could lose her nerve, she jabbed the doorbell. Julia’s hand gripped the powerful stun gun nestled in the pocket of her winter jacket.

She jumped with surprise when he opened the door almost immediately. He wore a joyous grin as he recognized his visitor. “Well Julia, baby, I didn’t expect to see you again so soon. Did you come to congratulate me on my victorious judgment today?”

Her legs felt like jelly. It took him reaching to touch her to jerk her into action.   The powerful stun gun was heavy in her hand as she jutted it out and squeezed the trigger.   A strong electrical jolt coursed through James Jackson’s body as she held the weapon against his bare skin for several seconds until he crumpled to the floor. The frantic look in his eyes was almost justice enough for Julia.   For the first time ever, James wasn’t the one in charge – and he knew it.

Julia had plotted her revenge carefully. She shoved the incapacitated James into the foyer, closing and locking the door. She knew the powerful jolt she’d delivered would only give her about ten minutes, so she wasted no time dragging his limp body across the marble floor into the nearby great room.   She jeered down at him on the trip to his large coffee table – a table very similar to the one the sadist had tied her to before he whipped her.

Just as he started to jostle his arms, she wrestled him face down across the low table, pulling the jute rope from her duffle and quickly securing his arms and legs spread eagle to the four corners.   Julia heaved a sigh of relief having him immobilized, giving her the time she needed to take her jacket off and unpack the tools she brought with her.   She carefully placed the items she’d brought in his line of site just as he’d done to her on that fateful night.

James regained his speech, “You fucking bitch, Julia. You’re going to jail for this.”

A strange calm invaded as she realized the time for indecision was past, and she set her jaw as she moved into action.

The sharp, jagged knife was her first weapon. James’ face filled with fear as she approached him with the jewel-studded blade.   After removing his belt, she went to work cutting every fiber of clothing from his body before jamming the knife back into the duffle. As much as she hated him, she admired the jerk’s athletic body and manly appendage jutting out between his spread legs resting against the table. Despite the electric jolt, his cock was already expanding and Julia found that amusing.

“I see you’re enjoying having our roles reversed, James. What was it you told me in June just after you had me tied and naked?   I think it was ‘you’re gonna just love losing control.’ How’s it feeling so far, you jerk?”

She didn’t wait for his answer before reaching to pull the same jet-black leather belt he had whipped her with from his pile of shredded clothes.     His eyes flashed with recognition of her intention, but to his credit James remained quiet.

Her first strike of his belt against his ass cracked loud in the room and he jerked his body trying to escape. Julia had practiced at home for hours, perfecting her aim so she could deliver the exact justice to her former boss that he had delivered to her that fateful night. He had whipped her just long enough to cover her body from mid-back to knees with welts, stopping in time to ensure no permanent proof of his abuse would remain after he released her the next day.

Julia had no such constraints as she rained the belt on him until he cried out for mercy, jerking his body against the ropes in an attempt to get away.   She didn’t stop until her arm was worn out, leaving his back, ass, and legs crimson.

She picked up the jar of petroleum jelly along with the fat dildo next. That was when James finally broke into a screaming rant as he realized she was reenacting the night of his crime. “Fuck sending you to jail – I’m going to kill you! You’ve lost your mind if you think you’re going to jam that thing inside me.”

She had expected to get great joy from seeing his pain, but Julia’s stomach lurched with disgust as she realized if she sodomized him, she’d be no better than her rapist. As tempting as it was to hear James screaming as she had when he had brutalized her, Julia was more concerned with looking herself in the mirror with peace every day once she got to Jamaica.

With deliberation Julia pulled the last item from her duffle bag. The laptop was already unlocked and ready for James to login to his secret bank account containing the millions he’d stolen from investors.

Julia had found many allies when she was digging up dirt against James. Being a jerk that sexually harassed every woman who worked for him created a lot of enemies. Women who were too afraid to testify were happy to share information that could put him in jail for a long time… that is if the judicial system worked that is. Julia had luckily learned early in life that if she wanted something done, she’d better do it herself.

“Here’s the deal, James. I have enough dirt on you to put you away in jail for the rest of your life. I have files, I have pictures, I have first-hand accounts from Joanna in HR and Jennifer in accounting. They may have been too afraid to testify in a judiciary court, but they’re jumping at the chance to come join me with their cameras for a front row seat as I shove this fat dildo up your ass while you scream like a little jezebel.”

The smug jeer on his face faltered.   Julia taunted him further. “Oh, and did I mention Joanna’s best friend is a journalist? You decide not to cooperate I’ll move to plan B with joy.”

“Just tell me what you want, you fucking bitch.”

Justified anger rose up as she laid it out for him. “What I want is to go back to June and have you not rape and beat me.   What I want is to be marrying my ex-fiancé Jerry next summer instead of losing my job, car, and home.” She paused, trying to contain the jumble of feelings.   Julia continued, “What I’m going to settle for is exactly half of the stolen money you jimmied from your investors into your secret bank account.”

His set jaw disclosed she’d struck gold.   James glared before erupting, “You’ve lost your mind, Julia.”

“No, James, I’m done losing. The justice system may have failed me, but I have my own definition of justice now.   I opened my own offshore account and I even have your jumbled account number so all I need is your password.”   A long minute passed where the jerk weighed his options. Only when Julia moved to pick up the jar of petroleum jelly and started lubing up the thick dildo did James buckle.

“I’m gonna kill you for this, Julia.”

“No, you won’t, James. You’ll realize you should be grateful you aren’t in jail or on the front page of the newspaper with a byline by my journalist friend and you’ll let it go.   I don’t have any more time to jockey around with you so I’ll take that password now.”

It only took five minutes to transfer just over three million dollars into Julia’s brand new fat bank account.   A light-hearted joy consumed her the second she received the confirmation in her personal email account of the successful deposit.

“Well, I’d love to stay and play with you some more, but it’s time I started my journey. Nice doing business with you today, James.”

Julia picked up the waiting stun gun and approached her prey.   The fury in his eyes was quickly doused as she jabbed the gun against the raw stripes across his ass and jolted him full of electricity until he lay limp.   It only took a minute to cut the jute rope holding him down and clean up the scene.

Julia took one last satisfied look at James’ naked and strapped body before turning to start on her new journey. Her jet to Jamaica left in four hours.

Hallie and “The Spanker”

While Life’s Unexpected Gifts is not being marketed as a Christmas story, much of the story does take place over the Christmas holidays.   Let’s join Hallie and Troy for a snippet of their Christmas morning.  Merry Christmas to all!

Hallie and Troy

Hallie and Troy

 

The ladies join Adam and they spend time chatting over coffee and rolls, meant to tide them over until they eat the full brunch in a couple of hours. Hallie is just finished helping her aunt by putting the large ham in the oven when the doorbell rings. While Uncle Adam heads to receive their guests, Hallie takes the stick of lip-gloss out of her front jeans pocket. She’d done it subconsciously and quickly shoves it back in her pocket when she realizes what she’d done, angry with herself for feeling nervous.

She takes a deep breath, hoping to calm herself so her guests never suspect how nervous she is to see the tall, handsome spanker. Yes, that is how she vows to think of Troy from now on in an attempt to remind her body how much she doesn’t want to be attracted to a barbarian who thinks it’s okay to light up a perfectly good ass.

Her resolve crumbles the second she turns to see him walking confidently into the room. His presence commands her full attention, his eyes trained on her as if to assess how she is doing this morning. He must approve because his face lights into a broad smile that has her knees feeling weak. She’s luckily close enough to the island to nonchalantly reach for the counter to hold herself steady.

Had he kept his distance, all would have been fine, but he circles the end of the island stopping first to hand a bottle of wine to Aunt Gina, hugging her back when she throws her arms around him to deliver a big hug. Their eyes meet over her aunt’s turned back, proving she has his full attention. The second he is out of Aunt Gina’s hug, he continues forward to scoop a panicking Hallie into his arms for a similar greeting, although Hallie is pretty sure he hadn’t allowed his hands to rest against Aunt Gina’s ass during their brief hug.

Hallie pulls back far enough to look up into his mischievous eyes. He’s in no hurry to release her. “Good morning, sunshine. How did you sleep?” Did he have a camera in her room or is it just her own worry making her feel as if he knew exactly how she’d slept?

“Oh, I slept like a baby. How about you?” Two can play at this game as Hallie lifts her right leg until her knee presses up against the package between his legs. She knows she struck gold when she hears his sharp intake of his breath followed by a long, quiet groan. She smiles up at him sweetly.

After a long exhale, he answers her quietly. “Honestly, I didn’t sleep all that well. I felt a bit like a little kid waiting for Christmas morning so he could see what presents he might find under the tree.” Was it her imagination or did he squeeze her ass on the word present?

“Well, sorry. I didn’t have time to go out to get you the new bike you asked for.”

The look on his face is playful. “How did you know I wanted a bike? Oh well, I’m sure we can come up with an alternate gift.”

She’s thrown off by his bantering and even more flustered by the fact that while he’s moved his hand to her back, he continues to hold her against his body, forcing her to crane her neck to look up into this playful eyes. Troy had been dangerous last night. This playful Troy is lethal.
