Rare by Susannah Shannon

thumbnailThis year not just the turkey will be roasted.

Just in time for Thanksgiving, Susannah Shannon brings us another delicious book in The Cass Chronicles. If you haven’t read her first three spanktastic books in this series — RoastedRelish, and Rendered — you’re missing out. However, this fourth book is completely standalone, so don’t hesitate to one-click!

There’s something special about this book for me and, if you read it, you’ll see why pretty quickly. Susannah Shannon is always using different mediums to bring you stories, including blog posts and emails. In Rare, she brings in something else — a book I wrote, The Unbraiding of Anna Brown! Imagine my surprise (and delight) when I’m reading Rare only to come across the following line:

Cass stretched out in the tub and gave herself over to The Unbraiding of Anna Brown. The descriptions of life on a ranch in the days before electricity and running water sucked her in. She loved the stern but wounded Carter. She gave a sigh of satisfaction when she reached the chapter where Anna was spanked by Carter.

As Cass enjoys reading Anna’s and Carter’s spanking romance, she carries on in her own romance with dominant hubby Killian, engaging in activities I’m sure would make innocent farm girl Anna blush! Intrigued? Keep reading. There’s an excerpt of such a scene below. But first, let’s learn a little more about what this book is all about.

About Rare

After six months in Chicago filming her TV show, Cass is delighted to be returning to Alaska.  But the move home raises a number of questions. How is it possible that she loves Killian more with every passing day? Why is he so determined to take a wooden spoon on their flight? What do the people of Slick Trench think about Hazel’s ambition to bring more business to their small town? Why does Killian seem to be determined to keep the lodge just the way it has always been? Even if they do go ahead, can they get the construction project done in time to begin filming at the lodge? What is the perfect way to roast a turkey? Is ginger good for anything other than the pumpkin pie?

The true love, small town characters, laugh out loud humor, steamy sex and Cass’s even more scorched bottom are what make this book of the Cass Chronicles series so deliciously Rare.

DISCLAIMER: This book contains the spanking of adult women and elements of power exchange. If any of these offend you, please do not purchase this book.


He carried a glass of water that contained a large finger of ginger. “Why was this thing under every other kind of food we had in the fridge?”

“Oh, I didn’t want anyone to find it.”

He shook his head at his dorky wife. “Since it’s not like we always have fresh ginger in there.”

So, he had a point, so what? She thought. Her gaze could not stay away from the ginger. He had carved it into a stubby plug with a deep notch and then a wider end.

“Are you sure that’s how you are supposed to do it?”

“Yeah—I looked online,” he answered.

Cass immediately pointed a shaking finger at her dominant husband. “I think this was a very bad idea.”

He wrapped his fingers around her wrist and pulled her to him. “It will be fine, baby.”

“Easy for you to say,” she stammered.

“I will be right here with you.” He kissed her and that stopped her lips from trembling. “I need you to trust me.”

“I do, but…”

He moved over to the bed and lay back on it, pulling her with him. His hands resumed his trails all over her body, leaving her aroused and panting. Killian took his time, his fingers drew circles over her nipples, his tongue teased hers. She raked her hands through his hair and ground her pelvis against his, aroused beyond all reason. He gathered her hair into his hands and whispered, “You belong to me. Every. Bit. Of. You.”

She could barely breathe, “Yes,” she whispered.

“Who decides what happens to that gorgeous bottom of yours?”

“You do.” She couldn’t find her voice enough to do more than give a breathy whisper.

“Who decides if you need to be spanked?”

“You do.”

“Who decides if I’m going to fuck your bottom?”

“You do.”

“And now who decides if you need to see what ginger does?”

“I guess you. But…”

Killian was done talking. He scissored her legs between his and turned her so that she lay over one of his knees.
