NSFW

It goes without saying, I would guess, that this website is not safe for work and should only be viewed by adults.

I’ve put a lot of effort into making sure that there are no explicit images on the front page of this blog unless they are beneath a cut, but as soon as you follow any links from here you are nearly guaranteed to find sexually explicit content.

What’s more, even on this page there are likely to be images (non-explicit but inappropriate for work), naughty text and sex stories. That is, after all, what you came here for, right? 🙂

Destiny’s Dark Light

Destiny’s Dark Light by Sara Dobie Bauer is out today. Well, I suppose more specifically, it’s out again today.

This story was originally published in three parts spread out across the Enchanted series, but now we’ve pulled it all together under one cover and are releasing it as a single author title.

If you like romantic urban fantasy or paranormal fantasy this might be a good fit for you:

In modern day Charleston, two fated lovers meet at the beginning of a world-ending witch war…

Cyan Burroughs is a lonely light witch prophesied to battle the dreaded Dorcha—a dark sorcerer with the power to rule the world. There’s one problem: Cyan doesn’t have any powers of her own.

An unknown witch flips a trolley and causes mass carnage, and Cyan’s dormant magic awakens. When she drags handsome Irishman Liam Cody from the wreckage, she recognizes his face from her aunt’s psychic portraits. He is the man Cyan is destined to love.

As she and her magical family seek to unveil the murderous witch who caused the accident, Cyan and Liam grow closer, but Liam’s mysterious past is not the only thing keeping them apart.

Dark witches and light will soon fight to the death, and Cyan must face her calling. How can she protect Liam and win the war when her immense powers are barely under control?

I edited this book and it’s being published via Pen and Kink so obviously I’m a bit biased about it, but I think it’s a fun fast-paced witchy romance. And I’m not alone. The reviews have been great. For example:

“ONE EXTREMELY INTENSE TREAT!!!

Intensely pleasing! Sara comes out swinging with this jaw dropping, tough as nails wild ride that blow this baby wide open. You get it all with this action packed, hard hitting, page flipping, adrenaline rush that keeps you riveted and on a razors edge. “

Patreon

I’ve tried for a few years now to find the time to be two people but unfortunately no matter how hard I try there are still only twenty-four hours in a day. That means that for a few years now, one or the other of my personas has been neglected while I focused on the other one.

It was time to make a choice.

So I’ve decided to simplify.

Moving forward I will no longer attempt to have a social media presence, because I just haven’t got the time to spend there. And trying to maintain a social media presence was taking away all the time I could otherwise have been spending writing.

And that’s where Patreon comes in.

I will be shifting all my focus to Patreon. I will blog here and I will release my books and stories here.

Oh, they will also be available at the other usual places online, but for more money. Here, my patrons will only be charged when I put something new out (that means no ongoing monthly payments — you’ll only be charged your pledge amount when I put out something new) and will have access to my entire library in the meantime.

And with a little luck this system will mean I’ll get to produce more work than I managed last year. Fingers (or feathers, I suppose) crossed.

<3

Join my flock here 

 

Stories already available that you can access right now just by pledging your support (you won’t be charged anything until I release something new) include:

Prairie Magic
Circles Within Circles
The Longest Night

She’s on the Bottom
Moonlight and Magic
Running on Empty

Lesser Gods Looking for Love

I’ve been spending most of my productive time these days working on things for Other Me, but every once in a while I get to sneak an awesome project in for This Me.

This is one of those times 🙂

Last year Pen and Kink put out the Enchanted series which included all of Wendy Sparrow’s demigods in love novellas. This year we’re re-releasing the demigod novellas all together under one cover and today is the day it hits the shelves!

Check this out:

Unmatched powers have their downside—in that they can kill a demigod if they don’t find their equal partner. Fertility needs Death. Pain wants Healing. And, all’s fair for Love and War if they find each other.

Aster recognized his beautiful Lady Death even though she didn’t know of her divine birthright. But Chandra doesn’t welcome the demigod of fertility’s announcement of her heritage with open arms. Having being used in the past, it’s not too much to want to be loved for herself, is it? If Aster can’t convince Chandra that she’s all he desires, it might just kill them both.

Pain has been Corbin’s companion and he knows he’s living on borrowed time. As a bounty hunter, he’s familiar with the chase, and he’s had a good run. The countdown clock is down to the final hour when Tam finds him. She seems too good to be true…especially when she kisses him senseless. Stealing her away to his cabin could save both their lives, but it will cost him his heart if she doesn’t forgive him for abducting her.

Despite being a demigoddess of love, Allie is not soft and tender. Donovan recognizes that around the time she’s got him pinned to her sparring mat. He keeps telling her she could do better than a one-eyed, burnt-out fighter, but she wants him and she isn’t shy about it. The demigoddess of love fell for him the moment she saw the growly need in Donovan’s expression, but she can’t war for his heart if he isn’t willing to fight for hers.

These demigod novellas are sexy-sweet and filled with sassy banter and feisty heroines. They have a heat rating of “not your mama’s romance, but she’d appreciate a copy so buy her one.”

Get it now!

Only $0.99 for a very limited time!

Rough Edges $0.99

Rough Edges is sort of the one that started it all. It was the first anthology I put out through Pen and Kink Publishing, and I’m super infatuated with it.

And it’s on sale.

If you like steamy stories featuring cowboys (and cowgirls) you can’t go wrong picking this one up for less than a buck.

I mean, you can’t go wrong picking it up at full price either, but why pay more than you have to?

For the next few days (until the 29th) you can get Rough Edges for only 99 cents.

Yeehaw!

Buy it now

*double-check the price before buying, the discount isn’t showing up everywhere yet. If it’s more than $0.99, buy it from Kobo or B&N

Call for Submissions: Power Play

Call for Submissions: Power Play

Power Play is all about the action and competition of hockey combined with the drama and emotion of romance.

I’m looking for consensual power exchange romance stories that revolve around the rink. Stories like the superstar who sobers up one day to find himself stuck coaching a peewee team and falling for the dominating mother of one of his players. The trainer with creative uses for sports bandages who is looking for her perfect match. The coaches of two rival teams who discover the spark of their competition continues even outside the arena. The goalie who loves being tied to her net and finds her no-strings arrangement with the opposing team’s forward growing into something more… I want all these and more.

You needn’t be a hockey expert to write for this anthology but do keep in mind that women play hockey too, ice is cold and skate blades are sharp.

Open to stories at every heat level, and any sort of pairing (or more-ing) that you can imagine. Stories must have a real conflict and tension with a HEA or HFN ending.

All hockey teams and players must be fictional – please don’t use any real teams or players in your stories.

The details:

• Minimum word count 2,500. No maximum.

• Reprints accepted but not preferred. When submitting a reprint include information about its original publication in your submission email.

• Open to all gender pairings and multiple partners

• Simultaneous submissions = No

• Multiple submissions = Okay

• Some sort of consensual kink is required. Preferably one involving a power differential.

Payment: $20 USD and a paperback copy of the anthology in exchange for the non-exclusive right to include the story in both the print and electronic versions of the anthology.

Open submission period: Until October 1, 2019

Expected publication date: April 2020

To submit: Please submit a .doc or .rtf in something approximating standard manuscript format to corividae@gmail.com Subject line: [Power Play] STORY TITLE

Failure to use the correct subject line may result in your story being misfiled.
Confirmation of receipt will not be automated and so may take up to three days.


FAQ

As questions come up I will post them and the answers here so that everyone has all the same information 🙂

Q: Do both MCs have to play hockey or be connected to hockey in some way?

A: No. Only one of your love interest characters needs to be connected to the game in some way. That connection should be central to the story though, not just an interesting background note.

*

Q: Can the kink be light (for example, just blindfolding someone and tying them up)?

A: Absolutely.

*

Q: What do you mean by ‘power exchange’ or ‘power differential’?

A: By ‘power exchange’ I mean where one person has more power than the other. For example, if someone has tied someone else up, the person who is tied up has less power than the person who is not. In your story, the power differential might only take place during a sex scene, such as with my example, or it might be a lifestyle choice such as with people who chose to live in a 24/7 D/s relationship (where one person is the Dominant and one submissive). I’m pretty flexible in regard to how the power exchange happens or how profound it is, but it is absolutely necessary that it be consensual.
