“I missed you.”

My unplanned hiatus from Saturday Spankings is the result of frantically attempting to get outside things (new chicken coop, new fencing) done before winter, and an unexpected surgery for my old horse which means I’ve spent a lot of time fussing over him and feeding him treats to help him with his recuperation.  Or maybe to help me with his recuperation – either way, we’re both recovering nicely!

While I was away (so to speak) Holding Court got it’s first review – and it’s good! Check it out over at The Jeep Diva!

Today’s Holding Court snippet is a more tender moment for Court and Clara:

“You having fun?” he asked, trying to regain his breath, as his body began to recover from the exertion. Court reached behind her and loosened her wrists, massaging away the marks from her bonds.

“You know I am.” Clara kissed under the edge of his jaw and he delighted in the feel of her soft lips against the sensitive skin.

He folded her in to his body, and Clara snuggled into the expanse of his chest. “I missed you.” He spoke against her hair, the silky strands tickling his lips.

“Me too,” Clara said. “It was too long this time, too long since to you came to me.”

Court makes Clara do and feel things she’d never before dreamed of. He is forceful and dominant, and he always knows just what she needs. Their secret arrangement allows them to enjoy each other without the disapproval of the community they both rely on for their livelihood.

Clara loves Court, and she’d do nearly anything to be with him forever, a real relationship, but she’s not willing to risk their stolen moments. But when their secret trysts are exposed, will she be able to hold on to Court? Or lose him forever?

“Time for your punishment, Clara.”

I swear, Saturday comes sooner every week – already time for another Spanking!  I think it’s because we’re trying to cram in all the things we were going to do “in the summer” as we are now rapidly running out of fall. We were white with frost this morning, and I still have fencing to do, and my new chicken coop to build, and the days just keep getting shorter. Sure enough, tonight, by the time I got in the house and my garden veggies washed and put away, I’d missed the deadline for Saturday Spankings … so this in an “unofficial” spank, but hopefully some of you will still find me! I’ll try to get organized sooner for next week.

Before Clara realised what he was doing, her hands were tied tight behind her back, bound by what felt like the silk belt from her dressing gown. Clara stepped back, pulling at her bonds. He’d never bound her before, and a rush of apprehension bubbled beneath her desire. “What are you doing?” Clara tried to keep from sounding anxious. There was no doubt in her mind that she was safe with Court, that he wouldn’t do anything to cause her distress, but the new restriction still made her belly flutter with nervousness.

“It’s time for your punishment, Clara.” Court smiled down at her, his dark hair falling over his eyes. “You didn’t think I forgot, did you?”

Naughty no-no's

Welcome blog hoppers! I’m excited to be a part of the Naughty No-No’s! (hehe)

holdingcourt_800A blast of cold air woke her, and Clara snuggled deeper beneath the blankets until she realised what the cold air meant.

Court.

She flung the blankets back and sat up—he was here. He stood just inside the door, big and broad, with his hat in his hands. In the dark, she couldn’t see his face, but she could feel his eyes on her. She stared for a moment, so glad he was finally really there, with her. Then, she launched herself out of bed and across the room.

He met her halfway and she leapt into his arms, her arms around his neck as he bent to take her lips. Clara drank in his kiss, parched for the taste of him after all the time they’d been apart. His mouth was rough on hers, the stubble of his beard scraped her face and all the while his arms, like two solid bands of steel, crushed her closer to him. His woolly coat was covered with snow and Clara shivered as it melted into her robe. Court broke the kiss and brought his hand up to her face. He looked down at her, stroking his thumb slowly over her cheekbone.

“Clara,” he said, his voice husky and low. Then he kissed her again, more slowly, cupping the back of her head with one hand, while sliding the other down the silky rope to pull her closer. Abruptly, he stopped and pulled back. He frowned at her. “What are you wearing?” Continue reading

“Please.”

Hello to my Saturday Spankings friends! This week, I’m off on my last horse adventure of the year, because soon it will be winter, time for staying home and writing smut! So I am going to have lots of fun this weekend, and keep my fingers crossed that the snow holds off a little longer for us.

holdingcourt_800“No, open your eyes”—Court’s voice was brittle—“I want to see you come, I want to see your eyes.”

Clara looked into Court’s eyes, saw the muscles in his neck tense as he watched her. She bit her lip, which did very little to muffle her cry as she crashed into her orgasm, bucking on the edge of her chair until she collapsed forward, the edge of the tub hard in her hands, her legs and hips twitching with the last ripples of pleasure.

There was a splash as Court lunged towards her then his lips were on hers, hot and demanding, and she threw her arms around his neck, clinging to him, unable to catch her breath and not caring. He hadn’t even touched her, not really, and still he could make her body sing, just knowing he was there, with her, at last.

“I can’t wait,” he mumbled again her lips. “I need some release, but it’s not time, it’s not time for us yet.” He stood up in the tub, looking down at her. “Please,” he said.

*Fans self” I do love it when a dominant man begs.
