Good morning! Today I’m blogging about Sunstrokes: Four Hot Tales of Punishment and Pleasure, a collaborative project between me and fellow authors Maisy Archer, Jane Henry, and Susannah Shannon. Each story features characters from our published books. Maisy wrote about Dominic and Heidi from My Dom; Jane revisited Meredith and Paolo from her Bound to You series; Susannah told a tale about Cass and Killian from The Cass Chronicles; and I wrote about Anna and Carter from my Lone Star Love series. We were thrilled when Blushing Books ran with our idea to publish the four stories together! Best news of all? It’s only $0.99, so what do you have to lose? Grab it now!
Sunstrokes is also a part of Scandalous Summer Reads. For one day only (June 15), a bunch of romance and erotica books will be available for free or $0.99, including this one. Be sure to sign up for a chance to win an Amazon $150 gift card, if you haven’t already.
About Each Short Story in Sunstrokes
The Perfect Memory by Maisy Archer
Just months after falling for the sexy dominant next door, Heidi has learned that submission is about more than just spanking and hot sex. While she loves Dominic and the relationship they are building, she sometimes chafes under his authority. So when Dom surprises her with a weekend camping trip, it becomes more than just an opportunity to get out of town—for Heidi, it’s also a vacation from the rules and a chance to recreate her happy childhood memories. But when everything that can go wrong does, and emotions run high, will Dom be able to step up and get things back under control? Or will memories be all they have left?
Under the Boardwalk by Jane Henry
For the first time in years, Meredith and Paolo are going on vacation in sunny Orlando. With no work or commitments to keep them apart from one another, Paolo is bound and determined to keep Meredith on her toes, when she’s not over his lap. He will have his way whenever he wants, and she’s more than happy to oblige. As Paolo embarks on a secret mission to find the perfect souvenir, Meredith is curious. What is the perfect souvenir? Paolo is easily able to stay her curiosity with his wicked ways, distracting her with sexy sessions over his lap, and his insistent demands. Yet when unfortunate circumstances put Meredith in a precarious situation, Paolo is determined to remind her that even on vacation, naughty girls get spanked.
Brined by Susannah Shannon
Nothing is hotter than Alaska on the Fourth of July, unless it’s Cass’s bottom if she can’t control her temper. Cass Nelson is showing off her home and her party-throwing prowess in front of a TV crew. As if auditioning for a TV show isn’t pressure enough, her recently separated parents have joined the festivities along with Hazel, her very happily, newly married mother-in-law. Berry shortcakes, breaching killer whales, and more than one kind of fireworks make an appearance, as do the humor and recipes that are always part of a Cass and Killian story.
The Firecracker by Amelia Smarts
Read the First Chapter
Married for less than six months, Anna is easing into her new role as Carter’s wife and Paddy’s mama. Anna wants to please Carter and be a good wife. She certainly doesn’t want to be taken over her husband’s knee for a sound, bare-bottom spanking for disobedience. But her behavior changes when she begins to doubt that Carter loves her as much as he loved his now-deceased first wife, and she decides obedience is not necessarily the best way to respond to her stubborn alpha husband. Tension burns, tempers flare, and a bottom is thoroughly warmed in this short story bursting with passion, persistence and, in the end, a new understanding of the healing power of love.
