#SatSpanks Exile to Unity #CorbinsBend

Saturday Spankings

Welcome back to another Saturday Spankings blog hop. It's hard to believe it's a week already. And what a week!
Exile To Unity, Corbin's Bend Book Three is now available!!!  Here's a little snippet to tempt your taste buds :D

Jim has just found out Ange has hidden something from him. Something pretty major, in fact. And he's not one bit happy about it. A look was enough to send Ange scurrying upstairs to her bedroom and prepare for the punishment that was surely coming to her....

It was all out there. No more lies. No more blame. It seemed like forever before she heard his footsteps on the stairs. She saw him look at her, his features impassive. No look of desire or appreciation for her submissive gesture.
“Get dressed, I’m not spanking you. Not now, anyway, I’m too angry.” 
“Jim, please, listen…”

Blurb: Exile to Unity, Corbin’s Bend Book Three
When their preference for BDSM becomes embarrassingly public, Angela and Jim O’Brien decide to start afresh in Corbin’s Bend, a community based on a common ethos of spanking, a place where Ange hopes they can belong.

Ange soon learns that in this new environment,  Jim is not beyond chastising her with a good sound spanking as the couple face their past demons and try to recover the closeness they once shared.  New challenges soon face the couple.  Will their difficulties destroy them or can their move be what Ange initially hoped for, an exile to unity?

Spanking Romance Reviews Round Table Discussion The Vanilla Spouse


Many thanks to Katherine Deane and Spanking Romance Reviews for hosting this discussion

Vanilla, to some it should only be served from the freezer as desert :D

I seriously battled whether I should join it or not because it is one of those topics that really sets me mouthing off! 

Why? Because every time I see expressions along the lines of "you can never change a vanilla" it makes me cringe.

Never is a mighty long time! And so fatalistic. And so not true! I will grant you, there may be some vanilla flavours that don’t lend themselves to a little added spice, but not all. Please take all that I say as being what works for me....everyone else must make their own choices in this life. 

Who is to say that just because your kink is not exactly the same as your partners that you can’t find middle ground? Or that you might not be opening them to a whole new world of pleasure? If we all believed you can never change a vanilla person, there are so many of us writers would never have come out to our partners. And that would mean that the divorce rate would be exceptionally high among kink writers.  

While many of the people I have come across say they had an idea of their fetishes from an early age, I think it’s fair enough to say, quite a few didn’t have the courage to confront their kink until much later and maybe many were already in relationships. I don’t think you have to throw the baby out with the bathwater. Much of a successful relationship is about compromise and considering one anothers’ needs. This is just as true in the bedroom as the kitchen, or the living room. Love and respect so often leads to a mutual desire to please.

If you happen to share the kink, then it’s great, but what if your partners isn’t quite as vanilla and has a different kink? Or is totally vanilla? Role play has its place, it might not be the full D/s you had in mind, but it can bring some satisfaction. Your scene today/ theirs tomorrow perhaps?  There is a strong probability that you might find a way forward. But it takes courage, from you to confront it, and from your partner to try it. It also takes a MASSIVE amount of self-confidence, you know you could be exposing yourself to a ridicule and scorn. Or you could be about to scare the pants off your partner, and not in a kinky way. But you owe it to them.

If you are already in a relationship, surely they are entitled to know all of you? Not just the “nice” parts? And how can you do them justice if you don’t give them the benefit of trusting them. You may well be very pleasantly surprised.

I am not for one minute suggesting that  it’s always possible to reach a solution. But I do definitely argue that you can change a vanilla, if they are willing to taste a new flavour! If you are in a serious relationship, chances are you will both want to make one another happy. Maybe that can't work for every couple. If that is the case I really do sympathise, but at least you will have given it a shot.

So if your partner really can’t deal with it, do you look elsewhere? Well, to me that depends on the relationship you have. In a genuine open relationship, where you can be honest with one another,  that's cool. Not a problem, you discuss the whole issue, and decide how you get your needs met. You let your partner know what’s going on, you might even discuss how it went, if it was all that you expected.

 But if it’s not a totally open relationship then what? I would have to say go with your conscience. You may have a heavyweight balancing act on your shoulders as you work out your needs versus your partner’s needs.
Should you have to deny what you are? No you shouldn’t.
But neither should your partner think you are one person, while there is another you, living a double life. Talking is vital.
What if you just go ahead and get your needs met elsewhere and then they find out? I think in that situation there is a strong chance you would end up kissing goodbye to your relationship.  

I admit to being sexually jealous, which is odd as I am not normally a jealous person at all. I know that if I found out that I was sharing my partner, because of some particular tendency he has and was afraid to share it with me, I would be RAGING, partly because he didn’t trust me enough to at least give me a chance to try to work something out, but also because I just don't want to share, any part of him!

But if he had a kink I absolutely couldn’t partake in and he asked my blessing to look elsewhere, would I give it? I really hope I never have to find out. 

When you come to the end of your days, wouldn't you rather think you embraced everything life had to offer, than you had turned a blind eye, and let life pass you by?

Everything above is my sentiments on the subject only, not what suits other people. Each person has to embrace their own lives, and it's not my place to judge other peoples lives or choices without being privy to their circumstances and emotions. But it's also not my place to judge a "Vanilla" and assume that they might not go really well with mint chocolate sauce.

Thanks for joining me. Be sure to hook up with all the writers on the linky list to see what their views are.

Sex toy review Battle of the Bum Vibes

Many spankos find their bum fettishes go beyond a brusied and blistered bottom. There is another naughty little place that can bring lots of pleasure. And they are not alone. The variety of toys on the market proves this is another pleasuredome to be visited and capitalised on.  I went in search of my perfect bum vibe. First I went to Ann Summers and checked out what they had on offer. At the time of my visit they either had massive, scary looking things that there was no way in hell I was putting there! Or they had a teeny tiny little "landing lights" vibe. Well, I confess the coward in me opted for the teeny tiny. Nice but no real oomph. At that time it came to may attention that there was a new on line distributer right here in Ireland so I decided to check out what they had to offer in this department.
Ann Summers Landing Lights Anal vibrator LoveBuzzVibes Aquavee Jelly Anal Plug
Pros Pros
Small – great for those just beginning to explore anal play Much better size – stays in place, and gives a nice sensation of fullness.
Lights up – if you’re too shy to play with the lights on
The vibration is not too noisy, and a very pleasant speed :D

Insert it + rub the clit = fecking electric!

The silicon exterior is that bit more smooth and flexible, facilitating insertion, which is a very good thing as it’s reasonably large.

Price – At seven pounds fifty it’s cheap! Very speedy delivery in Ireland – It arrived in one business day.
Cons Cons
Too small to stay in place or give enough sensation of a plug. A bit pricier at twenty five euro, but in my opinion well worth the extra money.
Very rigid
Personally I would have preferred if it was packaged in a rigid box for mailing, although the packaging had no labels or anything embarrassing.

The on/off switch is too tiny to operate well, especially with slippy hands! Might be a bit large for novices…I would suggest starting with a smaller plug first, even non vibrating.

The lights make it obvious – not for play in a house of sleeping children that might inadvertently disturb you – especially when the damn thing won’t turn off. Still fiddling about with the starter button, but at least it turns off if you take your finger off the button so no noise if there are unwanted visitors
Very noisy

Saturday Spankings

Hello and welcome to another Saturday Spankings Blog Hop. If you're reading this it's a minor miracle! It means that I have successfully scheduled and linked a post with linky-links and you're probably thinking, well done Tara, it only took you one year....

I am so excited. Exile To Unity releases on Wednesday 28th - only days away. You might wonder how an Irish couple end up in Corbin's Bend. The answer is they need to escape. I know it's not a spanking scene as such, but it's the outcome of a spanking gone wrong! I am sharing the first eight lines of the book this week, in the hope it will make you curious :D

June. Dublin, Ireland.

Angela O’Brien was ashen as she left the courthouse. She gripped her husband’s hand tightly, hiding as much of her face as she could from the reporters. She would speak to no one. Her tall, brawny husband looked solemn as he brushed aside photographers. She’d had to fight her dismissal, absolutely had to. It was wrong. No-one should be sacked from their position as a result of their intimate relations within marriage. It was nobody’s business but theirs. 

Exile to Unity
Release Date: May 28, 2014

When their preference for BDSM becomes embarrassingly public, Angela and Jim O’Brien decide to start afresh in Corbin’s Bend, a community based on a common ethos of spanking, a place where Ange hopes they can belong.

Ange soon learns that in this new environment,  Jim is not beyond chastising her with a good sound spanking as the couple face their past demons and try to recover the closeness they once shared.  New challenges soon face the couple.  Will their difficulties destroy them or can their move be what Ange initially hoped for, an exile to unity?

Thank you for taking the time to join me, have a great weekend and remember to visit all the other wonderful links.

Meeting the neighbours #CorbinsBend Exile to Unity

Exile to Unity
Author: Tara Finnegan
Release Date: May 28, 2014

When their preference for BDSM becomes embarrassingly public, Angela and Jim O’Brien decide to start afresh in Corbin’s Bend, a community based on a common ethos of spanking, a place where Ange hopes they can belong.

Ange soon learns that in this new environment,  Jim is not beyond chastising her with a good sound spanking as the couple face their past demons and try to recover the closeness they once shared.  New challenges soon face the couple.  Will their difficulties destroy them or can their move be what Ange initially hoped for, an exile to unity?

It's their first day in Corbin's Bend, and Ange and Jim are up to their tonsils in crates and boxes, all upended in the middle of the floor by Jim, who seems to think that this is the best way to get the job done quickly. Not a great time for some of the neigbours to stop by, and yet it's so inevitable. The messier the house, the more likely an unexpected visitor will drop in, Murphy's Law # 163778 :)

After lunch as the children were napping, they were still in the middle of the cold war when the doorbell rang and Jim arrived back in the living room with three people in tow. She could have killed him for bringing anyone in to such a mess, especially one of his making. Not that there really was much choice, the whole ground floor was open plan. This was going to be challenging for her house-proud ego. In her last home, they’d had a playroom that she didn’t mind getting topsy turvy as long as the rest of the house was neat and orderly. Ange plastered a fake smile on her face, mortified to have been caught in such disarray. The smile soon became genuine though when the small, round, redhead identified herself as Maeve Harshaw, and the men as Brent Carmichael and Lelo Stephens. As far as she was concerned the only person that mattered at that moment, in that little group, was Maeve and she grasped her in an almost suffocating hug, squealing with glee.
“It’s so good to finally meet you, Maeve.” Ange’s eyes welled up as she met the woman who had helped preserve her sanity over the last year.
“Aw, you too honey,” Maeve replied as she tried to extricate herself from Ange’s grasp.

Ange took in the little group. Brent was an attractive man, blond with intelligent-looking grey eyes. She could imagine he could be pretty formidable, as he seemed to be surveying all he saw before him, weighing it up. Lelo, older and completely grey, seemed pretty intimidating, too, for a small man. Ange figured it wouldn’t do to get on the wrong side of him. Thinking about it, she should have expected to see all these stern dommy types considering the ethos of the co-op, but she hadn’t actually considered that aspect. She sure as hell hoped they realized that she wasn’t going to be bending to her husband’s rule, never mind any other man’s. She wasn’t Taken In Hand and had no intention of becoming so.

Dungeon Crawl May 21 Corbins Bend

New graphics have the URL showing. Because, promotion, that's why.  The new graphics will make your cock bigger if you're a dude, and make your boobs bigger if you're a chick.

Hi All and welcome to the Dungeon Crawl....

Ange is met with a difficult choice...submit to a spanking or get punished in a much more degrading manner, which would you choose???

“It’s a new start, Ange. We nearly lost ourselves in the pandemonium of the court case. When everything went wrong we stopped talking and playing and then we sort of lost us. Come here and lay across my lap, I’ll show you what I mean.” His voice was gentle and coaxing and Ange slipped across his lap. She felt his hands shimmy up her thighs, raising the full skirt of her dress as he went, bunching it just at the small of her back as he kneaded her bottom with firm, sure hands. She melted into his caress. There was no denying it, that felt good, she thought as the troubles of the day seemed to slip away.
“Go fetch the wooden spoon,” Jim said.
“Jim, please, not tonight. I’m not in the mood, Ange replied. Even when she was weak with desire for it, she tended to try to avoid any spankings she didn’t initiate. Even when she thought she was being submissive, she liked to call the shots. She felt his hand land with an almighty thwack right across the center of her bottom.
“It’s not an offer, Ange. Get it or I’ll fuck you up the ass, no lube.” She caught her breath, with those words she was putty in his hands. Not that she objected to being taken that way the very threat just did things to her, made her weak with desire. Her clitoris leapt, as it responded against her very will to dominant Jim. His hand came down again with a loud crack, and once again, even as she rose to follow his instructions, sending her dress flouncing down with a gust of cool air around her stinging bottom.

She handed the implement to him with a tremble, her nervous excitement mounting. When he was in this mood there was no telling where it might take them, but it was sure to be memorable.

If you enjoyed this snippet, Exile to Unity is due for release on May 28 on Blushing Books and May 28th/29th on Amazon and Barnes and Noble. It's Book Three of the Corbin's Bend series

Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to visit all those dangerous dungeons and see what they have on offer, I can guarantee you won't be disappointed.

#SatSpanks #Corbins Bend #Exile to Unity - A good way to approach a difficult discussion!

Saturday Spankings

Hello fellow SatSpankers. Hope you are having a spankilicious Saturday. I'm sure you all know that the Corbin's Bend series has come to a flying start with two wonderful novellas: Finding Their Bliss by Thianna D and Sarah's Tutorial by Emily Tilton. I can't wait to join the fun on May 28th.

Another extract from Exile To Unity to get you in the mood .... (punctuation altered slightly to confirm to the 8 sentence rule)

Jim has a difficult subject to broach with Ange, after a period of tension. He's buttered her up by doing the dishes and suggesting she should go grab an early night.

Jim knew Ange would get all defensive saying he was trying to hold her back; but for once she was just going to have to listen to reason. Ange was reading in bed when he joined her. He watched her eyes follow him as he undressed.
“You’re looking great, all that time in the gym is paying off. I haven’t seen you so trim since your football days,” she said appreciatively.
Great, she’s in that mood, he thought, which was most unexpected given the tension between them. He shifted his plan. If he started with a spanking she’d be more receptive to his discussion points.

Thanks for visiting, I hope you have already visited the other links, but if not, for a red hot Saturday, just click on the links below.

Sarah's Tutorial
Author: Emily Tilton
Coming: May 14, 2014

When Professor John Dunn moves to Corbin's Bend, hoping to live the spanking-centered BDSM lifestyle for which he has always yearned, he gets more than he bargained for when his brilliant student Sarah Harshaw sets out to seduce him. Sarah, in turn, gets much more than she bargained for when she finds herself taken in hand, and loving it.

Both John and Sarah know that their torrid D/s relationship is wrong, but both also know that they have found in the other a true partner not just erotically, but intellectually as well. Will their love survive the trials that inevitably befall it when Sarah's parents find out, and confront John? Can Sarah convince John that she knew what she was doing when she entered his office even though wearing his collar wasn't in her game-plan?

HOT off the press: Get the scoop with Normandie Alleman's steamy new cover and sizzling extract from her forthcoming release Daddy's Game

I'm absolutely delighted to welcome Normandie Alleman with the scoop on her deliciously steamy new cover and a sizzling extract from her forthcoming release: Daddy's Games. Get an eye-full of this. Yum!

Cover Reveal for Daddy’s Game by Normandie Alleman

Daddy’s Game, Book Two in the Daddy’s Girl Series
Football and kink collide when the game’s biggest star tries to convince a beautiful artist to play Daddy’s Game.
Unofficial Blurb
Sparks fly when up-and-coming artist Carmen Harris meets football star Natron Dakers at her first gallery opening. As they grow closer he introduces her to his particular brand of kink – he wants to be her Daddy Dom and make her his little girl submissive. She agrees, and they explore their passion through a variety of sexual games.

Dallas Vipers’ wide receiver Natron Dakers is on top of the world. At the top of his profession, he has money, fame, and all the perks that go with it. Finally having found the perfect partner in his curvy little girl Carmen, his life feels complete. Until one day, in a split second, everything comes crashing down and it looks like he will lose it all. Will Natron self-destruct or will he dig deep and fight to win the ultimate game of love?

Excerpt 3 (R) BDSM

With the flip of his wrist he brought the first strike down on the alabaster skin of her back. The leather made a soft thudding sound as it made contact with her flesh.
She flinched, but otherwise seemed intact.
He let fly another stroke of the whip. And another until he developed a pattern that ran from her buttocks up her torso, up one side then down the other. The smell of leather wafted through the air as he pulled his arm back to prepare for the next blow, and the welcome sound of pleasure rose from her lips.
“You like that, babygirl?” he crooned.
“I do. It doesn’t really hurt. More like a little sting, but it feels good.”
“That’s it, baby. Go with it.”
“Yes, Sir.”
He raked the tails across her backside until her skin began to pinken. At that point he set the flogger down and stood behind her.
“Now back up a step and lean over and grab your ankles.”
This flustered her. “What?” she asked, clearly stalling.
“I’m going to inspect you.”
“For what?” she asked leaning over hesitantly.
“My pleasure.”
“I’m not sure I can grab my ankles. I’m not very flexible.”
“Hmm. You might want to work on some daily stretches then. But for now grab your legs as low as you can go.”
“Yes, Sir,” she said and grabbed her lower calves.
He cupped her sex with his hand, and he could feel the heat coming from her most intimate region. Smacking her pussy a few times elicited a small cry from Carmen, and he could tell it was the first time anyone had ever done that to her.
Breaking in a virgin to BDSM was an intoxicating experience. No one would need drugs or alcohol when an experience like this was available. He caressed her ass, her warm globes feeling heavenly under his touch. When he spread her cheeks to inspect her asshole, her whole body tensed.
“Relax,” he said.
“That’s easy for you to say,” she muttered.
He laughed. “The point is for you to trust me, become comfortable with me exploring your body.”
“It’s embarrassing,” she whined.
“It shouldn’t be. I want your body to belong to me. Everything about it is beautiful. Allow me to enjoy it. Do you think you can do that?”
“I guess so.”
“Did you mean to say ‘Yes, Sir’?” he prodded.
“Yes, Sir,” she said sounding like a chastised schoolgirl.
“That’s more like it,” he said spanking her ass before wetting his thumb between his lips then slowly inserting it into her rear entry.
She flinched, but remained silent.
“Good girl. Relax and it will start to feel good.”
He found her lips with his other fingers and worked them in and out of the complex womanly folds between her legs. Dipping in and out of her ass and her pussy at the same time had begun to arouse her. Her hips shifted slightly to meet his attentions and she coated his hand with her sweet nectar.
“Be still,” he commanded and he felt her struggle to control the urge to ride his hand.
His middle finger sought the center of her lust, and he flicked back and forth over her clit until he felt her muscles tightening more and more. Just when she was about to tumble over the edge he withdrew.
“Stand up.”
She obeyed, her legs wobbly.
“Turn and face me.”
She whirled around and he saw the confused look in her eye. The look that said, why?
With the pitifulness of a baby harp seal, she looked up at him. “Daddy, I was about to come. Why did you stop?”
His big Dom heart almost stopped. She was too adorable, too perfect for him. How could he deny her?
Clearing his throat he said, “Because your orgasms are mine. I tell you when you can come and sometimes you will have to wait until I give you permission.”

Daddy’s Game will be released later this month. Stay tuned, and follow Normandie here to get the announcement when it comes out:

In the meantime, have you read the first book in the series Daddy Morebucks?

Daddy Morebucks
From the moment she laid eyes upon him, Marley knew in her heart that James was not just another client, and the difference wasn’t even the large sum of money he offered in return for a single night of submission. No, what set him apart was the fact that when she called James “daddy”, it was her own heart which beat faster and her own body which ached with need.

After that night, Marley does her best to put all thought of him behind her, using the huge payday he provided to get on her feet again and start over… until James knocks on her door and walks right back into her life. He makes her a simple offer: if she will live with him and submit to him whenever he wishes, he will provide for her every desire.

Even before she accepts his offer, though, Marley knows what she truly wants is not money or clothing or even a fancy new car. What she longs for is a daddy who will give his little girl what she really needs… a daddy who will spank her bare bottom when she is naughty, tie her up and take her any way he pleases, and then cuddle her until she falls asleep in his arms. Can she dare to hope that James will be that daddy?

You can pick up a copy of Daddy Morebucks here:
