A Little Atonement

21682526_2022728711280201_1462176187_o.jpg

 

Taglines

Atonement – a price she was willing to pay

In a cabin lost to the world… love would be found

Pain or pleasure – that was his choice

She’d pushed him away… could he pull her back to him?

Sales Blurb

When Liam McCormick decided to take a vacation at his remote mountain cabin, the last thing he expected was to find his ex-fiancée waiting for him there. Elena Reeds was the love of his life, and when she called things off between them it broke Liam’s heart. Unable to stand the thought of her being sad and forlorn, he doesn’t hesitate to give her a second chance, but this time he isn’t going to let her run away from her need for a firm but loving daddy.

Soon enough Elena is standing in the corner to think about her naughty behavior before being taken over Liam’s knee for a long, hard spanking on her bare bottom. More embarrassing still, after the punishment she is shaved properly so everything will be fully on display for her daddy, then thoroughly and intimately bathed, dressed in cute pyjamas, and put down for a nap.

Over the coming days, Elena grows accustomed to Liam’s stern discipline and tender care, and being held in his arms and made his own is better than anything she’s ever experienced. But when the time comes to leave the cabin and return to their daily lives, will Elena’s fear that Liam will lose interest in her come true or can he prove to her that she will always be his little girl?

Publisher’s Note: A Little Atonement includes spankings, sexual scenes, and age play. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.

Excerpts

PG13 – Corner time

“God, I wish you’d just shut up! This is boring!”

“Excuse me?”

“I-I mean, not boring, but… I-I don’t like staring at the wall, my nose already itches and I can’t think like this.”

“Then, by all means, let’s see if we can make it easier for you, shall we?”

God, how she hated when he said that phrase. It usually preceded things that she didn’t particularly like. “Let’s get this spanking done, shall we?” “Let’s see how long you care to continue that snotty attitude, shall we?” “Let’s see if this paddle will make a better impression, shall we?”

“No, I mean, thank you for offering, but that’s okay. I’ll just stand…”

His chuckle silenced her, and she felt her face flush realizing how idiotic that had probably sounded, but the twirl of his finger indicating she was to turn back around had her hoping that he was in a forgiving mood. Once she was facing the corner again, it became clear that despite his chuckle, her daddy did not consider her offer humorous in the least. She felt his hands slip beneath her sweater and then his fingers unbuttoning her jeans. The sound of the zipper’s teeth ratcheting along its tracks followed as he leaned over her back to speak close to her ear.

“Let’s see if you’ll find it easier to focus on your naughty behavior with the part of your anatomy that will pay for those choices hanging out in the wind, shall we?” She wasn’t sure if she would have been able to answer even if his question hadn’t been rhetorical. A tug had her jeans beginning their descent and they didn’t stop until they were at her ankles. When fingers returned to slip into the waistband of her panties, she couldn’t help but clench her buttocks when they were slowly bared as he peeled the lacy blue fabric down. Once they rested on top of her jeans, she whimpered as the final barrier was removed with his lifting of the hem of her sweater.

“Hold this up, Elena. I want to see every inch of that naughty bottom.”

Taking the soft fabric in her hands, she pulled it up a bit, her entire body flushing with heat and yet she whispered, “But it’s cold.”

“Oh, sweetheart, Daddy has a solution for that as well.”

Excerpt 2:

R Rated – sex scene

“You’re cold!”

“Then how about warming me up?” he suggested.

She giggled but pushed him to his back and crawled on top, laying down along his length. “How’s that?” she asked.

“Pretty good, but I’ve heard that friction generates more heat.”

“It does?”

“Yes, baby, it most certainly does, but again, it seems that you doubt me?” He lifted her until she was sitting, her knees straddling his hips. His cock was already hard and more than ready to sink into her. “Lift up and put me inside you.”

She made that purr he so loved as she obeyed, slowly sinking down on his shaft until her little bottom was flush against his groin.

His hands on her hips, he smiled. “Now, friction is defined as the action of one surface or object rubbing against another.”

“It is? You mean like this?” she asked, lifting her body a few inches before settling back down.”

“Exactly. I knew you were a quick learner.”

He began to guide her, up and down, back and forth until she had her hands pressed to his chest, moaning as she rode him. “Put your hands behind you.” She obeyed, bracing her palms on his thighs. “Let’s try another bit of rubbing,” he suggested. Slipping his hand down, he began to stroke her clit as she moved, her back arched, her breasts thrust up, her head tilted back as she began to keen.

“That’s it, faster, baby. I want you to come. I want to feel your cunt clutching my cock,” he growled, his hips thrusting upwards, his fingers playing with her slippery little nubbin.

He almost lost his hold when she jerked, her cry filling the room as she shattered. She fell forward, her hands clutching the sheets as he used both hands to hold her in place as he chased his own climax while her walls continued to convulse around his cock. His shout was just as loud as he filled her, his breathing just as labored as he continued to erupt until he was empty.

It took him a moment before he said, “And that is the very definition of friction.”

“I think I love science,” she said.

Release Day Blitz – Mechanic by Amber Bardan

There was one girl Michael knew like no other.
Her good side and her wicked.
Gabriella ran from her past and her shame. She turned from the part of herself that got the person she loved most into terrible trouble.
It’s been so long now, it’s like that past no longer exists.
When Michael sees Gabriella after a decade, the one thing he doesn’t expect is that she’d have no idea who he is.
But Gabriella always liked to play dirty.
So what if he has to use his skills as a Mechanic to tamper with her engine?
He’ll use every tool in his toolbox to remind her who he is and make sure she never forgets again.


After spending years imagining fictional adventures, Amber finally found a way to turn daydreaming into a productive habit. She now spends her time in a coffee-fuelled adrenaline haze, writing romance with a thriller edge.

She lives with her husband and children in semi-rural Australia, where if she peers outside at the right moment she might just see a kangaroo bounce by.

Amber is an award winning writer, Amazon Bestselling Author, and member of Romance Writers of Australia, Melbourne Romance Writers Guild, and Writers Victoria.

Release Day Blitz- Rough Neck By Dani Wyatt

 

IMG_3780.PNG

Dahlia Ferrell emerged from the back of a black limousine and stepped right into my life. I knew the second I saw those curves hidden behind a loose pair of khaki pants and blue button down, I was all but lost. I’m not sure she’s even legal, but it doesn’t matter, I’ll wait. Nothing female has caught my eye in years and now I know why. I’ve been saving all of me for all of her.

But, fate has a strange way of throwing obstacles in the path to happiness. She snatched up my heart with her wild red hair and dimples, then as quickly as I found her, she was gone. Leaving me back on the road, towing my house behind me on my way to yet another lonely drill site.

Only this time, fate decided to add a new twist and give me a second chance. I’m not letting her out of my sight again. I’m not sure what a sweet, wonder like her could see in a man like me, but I’m done questioning. I’m taking what’s mine and anyone that thinks otherwise better be ready for a hella of a fight. I’m never letting her go.

Author’s Note: This little smoking hot read is all about a dirty man and a smart young lady who destiny decides to toss together. He’s a little older, a little rough and she’s sweet, innocent but don’t let that fool you. This heroine isn’t afraid to be herself and that’s just what this roughneck ordered. It’s instalove, possessive obsession from first glance.

Dani Wyatt loves her alpha men; make them military, cowboys, MMA — any uber alpha with a wicked possessive streak and an insatiable libido. Receive a free exclusive unpublished title when you join Dani’s private readers group for updates, free chapters and discounts.

She’s a 40 something regular lady who just happens to love badass alpha males who pull your hair and love their women with a lethal passion.

When she’s not writing (which is not often) she is probably laughing about some irony (like A-1 Steak Sauce is vegan), riding her horse, wondering why The Walking Dead can’t have a new episode every night, or looking cross-eyed at some piece of technology sent to ruin her day.

Feature Friday With Eric Battershell

I had the pleasure of meeting the amazing Eric Battershell this year I had seen his spectacular work all over facebook as well as on Books and to say I was amazed is an understatement. Eric has an amazing talent and I wanted to do this feature on him to show everyone his work.

 

Meet Your Photographer

 

Hello! Thank you for taking a few moments to find out a little bit more about me. I am Eric David Battershell and I am from Alliance, Ohio and currently reside in Uniontown, Ohio…12 miles down the exact same road that I grew on…with my wife, Julie, and our two children, Macy & Kyan. We also have our furbabies, who are never left out…Molly, Peony & Chi-Chi. My love for photography began when I was very young. I remember watching my late maternal grandmother with her rectangle shaped wind-up film camera and was fascinated by the flash bulbs that would rotate as each picture was taken. She loved documenting EVERYTHING…everything, to her, was a special memory. We would spend Sunday afternoons in her living room…the thick curtains pulled closed in order for us to view the pictures that she had sent out and had turned into slides. The projector would display the images on the living room wall and sometimes on her white retractable screen. Through the years, I began picking up the interest of capturing these moments. One of my first cameras was a disk film camera. I thought I was so cool with that camera in high school…hehe. I would take my camera everywhere. When I met my now wife, Julie, I “borrowed” her camera…never to really end up giving it back to her again. We would go away on vacation and she would tell me, “You aren’t enjoying yourself…you have one eye stuck in your camera the whole time!”. But to me, that WAS enjoyment for me. We travelled to beautiful places and I never wanted to forget the time that we spent there. The years would pass and my love for photography grew. We were married…went through several years of infertility…adopted our children and it was all just a hobby for me. I never imagined I would ever be able to make it a career…not something I would ever be successful at full-time. I would continue to photograph nature, wildlife, architecture, landscapes and so on. There was no limit to the things that I enjoyed photographing.

One day, in the dead of Ohio winter, my friend, Brigit, sent me an email. She told me that she spoke about me in one of her meetings at work. She worked at Akron General Hospital. She was on a committee for improving their patient’s experience and satisfaction. In recent months, they would display artwork, pictures, sculptures, etc. from local artists in the main lobby of the Heart & Vascular Center. Brigit mentioned my photography…my AMATEUR hobby at the time. She told me that she hoped I didn’t mind that she told them about me and that they would be contacting me to ask about the use of my images. WHAT? I only took pictures of flowers and sunsets…zoo animals and wildlife. Although Brigit was one of the friends in my life who kept pushing me to “do something more with this”, I had no idea what to make of the whole thing. So, the hospital contacted me, I gathered 53 5×7 and 8×10 prints, matted them very inexpensively and delivered them to the hospital to be displayed. They would be viewed by anyone passing through or relaxing in the large lobby. On February 21, 2009, I was sitting on my couch in my living room…exactly where I am at this very moment (on a different couch)…and Julie was in the kitchen. I was on my laptop and it hit me…I was going to create a business. We mulled over names. I had always loved the word “beacon”. I loved lighthouses and what they stood for…safely guiding ships to their destinations. That day, Beacon’s Light Photography was created. 

I would spend months finding my footing. I would continue to photograph nature and wildlife. Then friends and family began asking if I would photograph them or their families. I remember telling my cousin Cheryl, “Well, I really only photograph THINGS, not really people…”. I figured out a way to photograph people in the places where I loved photographing nature or urban settings. I waited until my business was about a year and a half of before photographing my first wedding…I needed to attend a few more weddings of friends to be sure I knew what I was doing. My first wedding was July 10, 2010…and I guess I did pretty well because I ended up photographing that groom’s sister’s wedding 5 years later! I would go on the photograph 10-15 weddings per year while working full-time at First Energy/Ohio Edison. But, I wanted more. I always wanted more. I STILL want more! I loved to travel. I thought I could begin photographing destination weddings, but I had to have my job at Ohio Edison to pay the bills. Late in the summer of 2011, Julie and I created an 8-month plan for me to leave Ohio Edison to become a full-time photographer. It was that same month that I would meet a local model/fitness competitor…and the vision changed completely. 

I promised myself when I created my business that I never wanted to be known only as a certain type of photographer. I loved photographing so many different types of things…I just never wanted to limit myself. So in the summer of 2011, I shot my first fitness modelling photo shoot. I loved the idea of working with models. I loved being creative and working WITH them to create images that meant something to both of us…a practice which I continue to pride myself using today. The final months of 2011 would pass and I found myself so intrigued by this new avenue of work. On April 27, 2012, I worked my final shift for Ohio Edison. I was free to travel…I was free to become something more. Remember, I still want more!

I thought that I would be leaving Ohio to shoot destination weddings…well, that was several years ago already and I have yet to photograph a destination wedding. Silly me…thinking I am in charge of the choices made in this life I have been gifted. I continued photographing fitness competitors and models. But at the time, there was no outlet that seemed to generate income. In June 2013, I was contacted by a NY Times/USA Today Best Selling Romance novelist. She was looking for an image for her next book and needed a certain model. I, again, was clueless on how this new process even worked. On June 11, 2013, I sold my very first image that would appear on a romance novel. No one…and seriously NO ONE, from my small town, would have ever expected me to begin marketing images for romance novels…not even ME! But I did and it was so much fun. My shoots were beginning to have a bigger purpose. I was collaborating with authors, who were passionate about the words they place inside these books, to create the faces of their stories. How fun! Since then, I have sold over 400 exclusive book cover images. I could not be more grateful for the opportunities and this book world has awarded to me. I have travelled to fitness competitions across the country and I have travelled not only in the US for photo shoots, but to several countries around the world. I have plans to visit continents that I have never been to before. I simply am blessed and honoured by the relationships built over these last 8 years in business. I am not stopping here. I have ideas…I still have wild dreams and I intend on keeping an open mind to new adventures that I cannot even think of on my own. So, how was I nicknamed The Happy Snapper (Snapper for short)? Sometime during 2013, I received a very nice message in social media from someone overseas. They said to me, “Well, you are one great snapper.” and I loved that word. I told a few people about the message and word began spreading through the industry that I was The Happy Snapper because I always TRY to keep things light and happy. I certainly don’t always, but I do my best! 

I thank you for taking this time to read my long-winded story. Trust me, this is the scaled down version. If you have further questions about the services I offer, please do not hesitate to visit my Contact section to find the best way to connect with me. Thank you to those who have shown your love and support over these years. I could not continue without your blessings. 

THANK YOU,

 

 

Now I want to show you all just some of Eric’s amazing shots im picking a handful of my favourites as I have so so many.

Their Virgin Brat



Title: Their Virgin Brat 
Author: SC Daiko 
Genre: Menage Romance 
Cover Designer: RBA Designs 










Super-hot twins for one bratty girl
 
Aiden and Liam
Dad has remarried and our new step-sibling is a brat.
But we’re good at soothing difficult mares;
a slip of a girl should be no problem.
When we learn the brat still has her V card,
riding horses isn’t the only thing on our minds.
We can’t stop thinking about bratty Samantha,
breaking her in and making her ours.
Just for a short time.
At least, that’s the rule.
Except rules are made to be broken, right?
 
Samantha
I’ve never been with one man,
let alone two,
and that suits me fine.
Men are trouble.
Aiden and Liam are so freaking hot, though,
soon all I want is their touch,
their kisses,
their gorgeous shafts.
I know what we’re doing is wrong.
They’re my twin step-siblings;
if our parents find out
all hell will break loose.
One rule: it’s only for a short time.
Will we lose everything by breaking that rule?
 
Early reviews of “Their Virgin Brat”
“Hot, hot, hot””
“Fun, sexy and taboo!”
“The characters are well-developed and I loved them all so much.”
“The epilogue is everything a reader would want from this feel-good story.”



Their scent reaches me before I feel their arms holding me… Aiden’s warm spice and Liam’s fresh outdoors aroma.
Fear slices through me, and I try to push them away.
“Shh, we’ve got you, babe,” Liam whispers into my ear. “It’s alright You’ve had a nightmare.”
I’m sandwiched between them, and they’re stroking me, soothing me like one of their horses.
I lift my face, and Aiden kisses away my tears. “Better now?”
I feel strange, like I’m still dreaming. Maybe I’ll wake up in a minute and standoffish Sam will reassert herself and tell them to get lost. Instead, against all reason, I lie there, wanting their touch.
They’re breathing deeply now, and their hands are everywhere, smoothing my hair, grazing the tops of my thighs, squeezing my ass.
My nipples are pressed against Aiden’s hard chest, and, for a moment, I feel embarrassed my tits are so small. I hear my heartbeat echoing in my ears, and feel his warm breath fanning my forehead. He kisses me; I close my eyes, daringly flicking my tongue into his mouth. His beard scratches my lips and he tastes of chocolate and mint.
I can’t believe this is happening.
My first kiss from a man.
Ever.
And I’m not scared.
I even hope I’ve done it right.
“My go now,” Liam grunts from behind.
 Aiden turns me and Liam’s mouth captures mine. His lips are hot, wet, and needy. I pull away, gasping, staring into his hooded eyes. A prickle of anxiety spikes my insides as I feel the ridge of something hard against my belly. His cock. Eek!

Honor of the Wolf

Day Six

Honor of the Wolf

The Gray Pack Book Six

Being a Beta wolf in the Gray Pack is one of the highest honors Luke Gray has ever attained, but he wants so much more for himself and his pack. The recent shift in mating habits, has disturbed his idyllic view of their way of life, and worse yet, no one else seems to understand his point of view.

Tavi Reid is a woman full of grit, and determination. She’s come too far, and worked too hard to let an arrogant man with a chip on his shoulder throw her off track. Even if he’s sexy as hell and makes her weak in the knees, she has to stay focused on her daughter and their future.

They are both tested with traumatic new changes to their lives, but will they lean on each other to get them through, or will these two independent individuals end up with disaster on their hands? Honor is not a right, it’s earned…

Excerpt

“Why are you here, Luke?” she asked softly, tipping her head to look up at him. In the shadows of the night, he looked lethal and sexy as hell. His granite-sharp jaw worked with tension and his full lips pursed in thought.

“I needed to see you again.”

She shook her head. “Why? Didn’t we say everything we needed to say last night? You’re a young, sexy, single guy looking for a one-night stand, and I’m a tired, single mom. That’s like trying to mix oil and water. It won’t work.”

“You think I’m sexy?” he asked, the corner of his mouth curving up. She laughed, and shook her head. “Look, Tavi, I don’t know why I’m here, or honestly how I ended up here.” The genuine look of confusion on his face concerned her, but it was the honesty in his eyes when he lowered to a crouch in front of her, that really stole her heart. “I feel like there’s something in my chest that’s connected to you. When I try to stay away it pulls me back. I don’t understand it, and I don’t know how else to explain it, but it’s there. I don’t know shit about relationships, so I can’t promise you more, but—”

“Did you hit your head, Luke? I have a daughter. I don’t do one-night stands, and I sure as hell don’t do them with men who stalk me,” she interrupted, frustrated by the deep desire in her heart to say yes.

“Stalk you?”

She gestured around them. “Well I don’t see you visiting so often for the ambiance.”

“I’m not trying to stalk you. Shit. I just want to spend some time with you.”

“So what, you’re going to get to know me out of curiosity?”

“No! Yes. Maybe? I don’t know.” He looked so confused and frazzled that it made Tavi’s heart ache for him. She wasn’t sure she wanted him to know how strong the feelings in her own body were right now.

“When you do know what you want, you know where to find me.” She stood and turned to leave, only to run smack into his hard chest. With a startled yelp she clutched his shirt to keep from falling over. She had no idea how he’d moved so quickly, but she didn’t have time to ask before his mouth came down on hers.

She might have chalked up yesterday’s physical reaction to a fluke, but as he pulled her in close and ravished her mouth she felt her heart pounding in her chest. This was no fluke. This was passion, and a perfect feeling of rightness in the world. Luke fit her like a puzzle piece, and together they were explosive.

Pulling back, she ended the kiss with a gasp of fresh air and a groan of disappointment. There was no way she could keep putting him off if he kept kissing her.

“Luke, I can’t.”

His eyes flashed in the shadows of the night, and she could see his jaw muscle clenching in frustration. “Why?”

“I’ve already told you why. I don’t want either of us to get hurt. You aren’t what I need in my life.” She backed away from him, pulling her coat tight around her chest to combat the icy cold air on her scorching hot body.

“How do you know that if you won’t even get to know me?”

She shook her head and fought back tears. “I’ve already survived one man who convinced me to listen to my body instead of logic.”

A heavy silence settled between them, and Tavi felt torn. Her instincts were telling her to throw herself back into his arms and hold on for dear life. She wanted to spend eternity wrapped up in his embrace. But it just wasn’t the right thing for her, or her daughter.

“I’ve got to get back to work. Go home, Luke, and forget this ever happened.” She made it to the parking lot before he spoke again, but his words echoed in her head for the rest of the night.

“I can’t. I wish I could baby, but I can’t.”

Adult Excerpt

Hearing Tavi ask him for the thing he desired most made his balls draw up tight, and his cock twitch painfully behind the zipper of his jeans. With a gentle push, she sat on the edge of the bed with him between her knees. It put her pert breasts at the perfect level for him to devour. Licking the tip of one while he teased the tip of the other with his fingertips, he began to seduce her body with his.

Every stroke was matched with a moan, or a pleasure-filled sigh, and his cock grew harder and hotter. She smelled of jasmine and raw woman. The sexually potent fragrance made his wolf mindlessly happy and wild with the primal desire to sink both his cock and his canine teeth into her, marking her as his own.

He set about worshiping her body with his tongue and his fingers. Falling back on the bed, she murmured words of pleasure and need, sometimes making sense, and other times incomprehensible.

With her pussy spread open to him, he slid his fingers into her pale pink opening, and had to bite his lip at the velvet heat that surrounded them. She was going to be tight. He was larger than most human men, and she was much smaller than he’d expected. Then again, he’d never been with a woman who’d had a child, so he hadn’t truly known what to expect.

What he got was a sexual goddess. She was beautiful, right down to the teeny tiny white lines that dotted her lower abdomen. She bore the scars of her pregnancy, but it wasn’t a turn-off. It actually fulfilled some primal need inside of him to find a woman that could bear his children. A strong mate.

Before he allowed himself to drift too far down that road, he focused his tongue on her sweet cunt, and began teasing her toward her first orgasm of the night. Her flavor was a deliciously salty-sweet blend and the more he got, the more he wanted. The folds of her pussy were soft against his tongue, and moisture dripped from her opening as her hips thrust up against his mouth seeking more from him. He didn’t make her wait for it, instead he focused all of his energy on bringing her to a fast, hard climax. She didn’t disappoint, jerking underneath him as her cunt spasmed around his thick fingers.

To his surprise she was almost completely silent in her orgasm. Her face twisted and her mouth dropped open with a sharp exhale, but no other noise left her throat. If it weren’t for the obvious reaction under his fingers and tongue he would have doubted how good it was for her.

After a few breaths she caught him staring up at her from between her thighs and she blushed. It stroked his ego to see her cheeks stained with pink and her body trembling underneath him.

Bending, he nipped her inner thigh, and she protested. “Ouch! Hey!”

“You taste good.”

Her cheeks grew even redder, but she returned his grin. “I’ll return the favor if you let me up.”

Luke bit back a growl of need, and shook his head. “As much as I’d love to watch you suck my cock, I’m on the edge of my control already. That will have to wait for later.”

Rising above her, he pressed forward and her thighs spread around his hips in welcome. He kissed his way back up her torso to her sweet tits, pleasuring each one with his tongue, and teeth, before continuing to her collarbone. The moment he reached that thick tendon that connected her shoulder to her neck, his teeth sharpened instinctively. His wolf wanted to mate her, and it was going to take everything he had to resist it.

Burying his face in her hair, he could hear her murmuring words of encouragement as her hands began roaming over his bare chest and shoulders. His jeans felt like they were strangling his cock, and he groaned when her fingers made their way down to his zipper.

“Take them off, Luke, please?”

Her pretty plea was music to his ears, and he rushed to release his erection from confinement. It throbbed against her thigh as he shoved his pants to his knees, and she froze.

“Holy shit.”

“What’s wrong, baby?” Luke frowned in confusion and then realized that she was staring at his cock.

“You’re massive!”

He felt ten feet tall with her staring at him in wonder and appreciation, and he let out a loud laugh. “That’s the sweetest thing anyone’s ever said to me.”

“Well don’t let it go to your head, big guy. You haven’t proved you can use it yet.”
