Adrienne Blake - The Cardinal's Whores

The Cardinal’s Whores
Adrienne Blake

I'm so happy to have Adrienna Blake here at the reading room today. This looks like a really good one.


Blackmail, betrayal, and bedroom lust are standard fare in the court of Henry the Eighth. Joan Larke has heard all her young life that this is so, but she is completely unprepared to be dragged into the midst of it. Dragged she is, though, when the beautiful girl falls into the hands of the powerful and power hungry Thomas Wolsey, cardinal, confidant, and finally lord chamberlain to the king.

Wolsey knows how many secrets are passed in the bedchamber, and shamelessly enlists any woman who comes within his influence as his spy. He turns her, under duress, into a whore who brings him information from her pillow talk with the movers and shakers of the early 16th century. But he needs love, too, and he keeps Joan to himself—for a time.

When Joan finds herself no longer wanted and in peril of spending the rest of her life in a nunnery, she turns to Lady Anne Boleyn, who is rapidly supplanting Queen Catherine in Henry’s affections. But treachery is a two-edged sword, and the betrayer often becomes the betrayed in the shadowy world of Tudor court intrigue.

Although Joan has secrets of her own she can trade, in the end, she can do nothing but watch and tremble as the cardinal and the would-be queen battle behind the scenes for the love of their king, and to keep from winding up under the axe, as so many did in those dark days.

His touch was electric, but the thrill was tinged with fear. She was not as comely as once she was and she was afraid to undress fully in front of such a beautiful man. What would he think of her? But those kisses were so sweet, his attentions so tender. The bloom of passion kindled within her mind smothered her fear, and as his hand rose higher along her leg, she chose not to restrain him, preferring to live in the moment and leave tomorrow to look after itself.

His hand soon reached the top of her thighs, and as he caressed her there, she was pressed gently down onto the couch. She did not resist him, though she trembled every inch of the way. Yet it was a sweet fear, and her greatest fear of all was that he would stop and think better of what he was doing. But he did not stop. She sensed his need was as great as her own, and his adept fingers teased and played with her, turning her desert into a honeyed oasis, while his mouth kissed the orbs of her bosom, releasing her nipples from her corset, and sucking her so hard she thought she would cry out.

Saturday Spankings - Spankings cause tears

What better place to celebrate a new book coming out than here on Saturday Spankings? Cassie’s Road Trip should be available by Tuesday at the latest and you better know I’ll be posting the buy links as soon as they’re up and running.
An annoyed Tom request Cassie accompany him to the bedroom. Startled, Lily realized he’s planning to spank her and immediately tries to talk him out of it. Lily is definitely not a fan of the ‘spanking lifestyle’. Cassie weathered the spanking like the old pro she is, but she was not ready for Lily’s reaction.

Lily went back to the kitchen and her silence was filling the room. I didn’t know what to say to her. I decided to try her cure-all and I went to give her another hug. She accepted it, but quickly turned away when I let go. I looked at her in surprise, “Lily!” I exclaimed, “you’re crying. What’s wrong?”
“I’m not crying!” she barked at me and then, grabbing a dishtowel to cover her face began crying in earnest. I was at a total loss and I needed reinforcements.
Grabbing my phone, I called Sue. “Can you come up here quick, I need help!”
“On my way,” was all I heard before she hung up. We know each other’s voices so well she knew that there was no crisis, but she didn’t hesitate.
I was still patting Lily on the shoulder as she sat crying when Sue arrived minutes later. One glance and she was on me, “What did you do to Lily!” she demanded.
“I didn’t do anything!” I cried. “It was Tom.”
Sue’s eyes flashed true anger, “What did he say to her.”
I rolled my eyes, exasperated at the both of them. “He didn’t say anything to her, he spanked me and she started crying.”
“Good grief, Lily,” Sue told her, beginning to grin, “When he spanks her ass, she’s supposed to cry not you.”

While you’re waiting for this one go by my author page and check out the other Cassie books. This one will make nine in all, but each can be read as a stand alone. If you enjoy spanking stories I really think you’ll like reading about Cassie and Tom, Amazon Author Page

Maggie Ryan - Lilly Blossoms

Lilly Blossoms 
(Lessons in Submission: Book III) 
By Maggie Ryan

I'm very happy to have Maggie Ryan here today. This sounds like a great read!

Beauty isn't perfection—it is the ability to see beyond the flaws.
Victorian England is not kind to those born without privilege, and yet Lillian Lancaster has made a home for herself and a scrawny feral cat. Lilly is happiest working in the gardens, knowing she can never match their beauty. She is one of the flower-girls on the streets selling the bouquets she makes with love for mere pennies. When her very livelihood is threatened by what was intended as a kindness, she assuages her conscience by crawling through the hedge and taking only what she needs to survive. On the day her presence is threatened to be discovered, she takes refuge in an oak tree and witnesses a scene that will change her life.
The moment Phillip Carrington sees Lilly hidden in the foliage, he is intrigued. The moment he holds her, he is captivated. The moment she gives him her trust, he knows he wants to spend the rest of his life convincing her that she is the most beautiful bloom in the garden.
Will his love be enough to teach this young woman that her past does not need to keep her trapped in fear? Will learning what happens behind the etched-glass doors of the special school run by Miss Eleanor Summers frighten her, or will it let her see that what she perceives as flaws are actually to be viewed as part of the beautiful soul that lives inside her? Will she place her trust in Lord Carrington and, with the gift of her submission, allow him to lead her away from the darkness?
Lilly Blossoms is the third book in Maggie Ryan's bestselling Lessons in Submission series and yet it can also be read as a stand alone.
Disclaimer: This is a book based in the Victorian era and includes the dynamic of age-play. It includes the spanking of adult women and explicit sexual scenes, including anal play. If any of these offend you, please do not purchase.

"Rachel Marie, I suggest…" His tone told of his disapproval of the girl's answer.
"But, Papa, you can't! Not… not out here. Not in front of… of Uncle Phillip!" Rachel interrupted and then gave a startled yelp that seemed to pierce the air as the thorn had earlier pieced Lilly's skin.
Lilly suddenly realized three things: the voices were becoming louder, she could hear the footsteps against the cobblestones of the garden path, and there was absolutely no way she'd be able to make it through the hedge in time to avoid discovery. Whimpering again, she had but a few moments to find a far better hiding place than the scant covering of the rose bushes. Dropping the basket she was holding, she moved a few feet away and went onto her tiptoes, stretching her arms up.
"Do not interrupt when I am speaking, little girl. Instead of telling me what I can't do, I suggest you answer the question you've been asked. There is a bench right around the next bend, where we shall have yet another discussion and lesson to make sure you know the exact answer you know I'm expecting."
Oh, sweet Lord! He means this bench! Lilly had just moved to the other side of the tree to plant her feet on the bench in order to reach the lowest branch above her head. Using every bit of her strength, she jumped and caught the branch, holding back her whimper as she climbed. Please, please, don't let them catch me! I won't steal ever again. I swear it!

Author Bio:
#1 International and award winning best selling author for Blushing Books.  I write both contemporary erotica and historical spanking romances.  I enjoy writing about characters that enjoy the provocative D/S lifestyle of today’s times as well as taking a step back into the past to write stories that take place in the Victorian era with age-play as a theme.  
I live in the great Lone Star state with my wonderful husband.  I have always loved reading.  Growing up in a family with four children, it was difficult finding a place to be alone.  I was probably one of the squeakiest clean girls on the planet as I would spend hours in the tub so I could read without being bothered.  It wasn’t long before I began to make up my own endings to the books I was reading.  From there, it just seemed natural to begin writing my own stories.
I never try to restrict myself to any one genre because there are just too many delicious possibilities out there and inside my head.  I admit to being somewhat of a romantic though as my stories always must have a great deal of love, passion, corporal discipline and, of course, great, mind-blowing sex.  I want my readers to be able to see, hear, feel and know the characters that I’m creating as well as I do when I bring them to life and transfer their stories to paper.  I want my women to be strong of character but also strong enough to know that submission given in love and trust to your partner does not make you weaker, it makes you far stronger.    I want my men to be sexy, strong, demanding alpha males who know how to take what they want while acknowledging it is a gift they have been blessed with by the women that have chosen to submit to them.  I want there to be no doubt that they truly would die for the other no matter how others might view their relationship.
