Please note: This post is for mature readers ONLY. If you’re not 18, go read something else!


I won’t take up too much of your time today – I know you’re anxious to keep hopping – just remember to check the Linky List and the Rafflecopter links at the bottom of this post so you can enter win one (or more!) of our fabulous prizes as well as follow all the other awesome participating authors… 😉

Most of us probably know what some of the letters in BDSM stand for, but did you know the acronym really has 6 letters? Do you know them? One lucky commenter – who gets the all 6 initials correct – will be entered to win a $10 gift cared from me. Don’t worry…here’s a hint:

B/d D/s S M.

Okay. Let’s see if you’re as kinky as you think you are… Good luck! In the meantime, please enjoy the following excerpt from Shattered Trust, my newest release…



Learning to love is the easy part…

As a young woman, Kate Landry trusted the wrong man, and she paid dearly for her naiveté. Alone, pregnant and destitute, she survived by the sheer force of her will. Now forty-two, Kate has made a good living for herself and her daughter as the owner of the Bluebird Saloon. But she’s forgotten how to live. That is until he comes into her bar…

Liam St. James loved a girl once. And only once. After an accident paralyzed her, she didn’t trust he would continue to love her. Brokenhearted, Liam left and soon discovered a world where women did trust him—to be their sexual Dominant. He plays out the scenes masterfully, but the unexpected request from the stoic bar owner will pose his greatest challenge yet…

Kate and Liam embark on a journey to uncover repressed urges and, in the process, they discover new desires. They also fall in love with one another. But when you’ve been shattered as badly as they have by mistrust, deceit and abuse, loving is easy. Trusting is harder, if not impossible, especially when the heart is involved…



She sensed Liam’s firm presence behind her. He lent her his support, his strength without touching her.

“Take a breath. Nice and slow and deep.”

His warm breath rustled her hair. She obeyed his instructions, and her body unwound.


On her next exhale, the gossamer fingering hit between her shoulder blades, lighter and more delicate than before.


Her back instinctively arched and dozens of thorns stung her belly.


Ducking from the sting brought back the teasing. She was trapped between the competing sensations. Even standing stiff and not moving allotted her no relief. Either be in pain or get tickled.

“You gotta breathe, kitten.”

Kate concentrated on breathing. In her nose. Out her mouth. Soon the rival feelings melded together. She stopped being able to tell where one started and the other ended.

Her pulse beat a peaceful rhythm in her chest. A whirlpool of kaleidoscopic colors whisked around behind her lids, catching her in the vortex. Spinning her. Lifting her.

It was a wholly foreign feeling, this being perched on the verge of something…she didn’t know what. It might be awful, or it could be glorious. Pressure built low in her womb. Her breasts filled with blood, tightening her nipples to throbbing buds. A deluge of warmth whooshed through her body. It pooled between her legs. Made her wet and achy…down there.

Her conscience demanded she halt this. This wasn’t right. It was sick. Twisted. She flung her prissy morals to the side.

The prickly spines traveled up her stomach to the underside of her left breast. They pressed roughly into her tender flesh.


Her head dropped back as her mouth opened on a pained gasp. The discomfort lessened, and she immediately missed it.

“What’s your color?” Anxiety tinged Liam’s words.

“Green,” she replied without hesitation.

“Talk to me. Tell me what you’re feeling.”

She swallowed. “I…I feel…lost. I want…”

“What do you want, kitten?”
