J is for JAMES, JEREMY & JOHNNY

the names of my heroes. I'm cheating today, I'm doing a double blop-hop with the one post, I hope that's not breaking any rules :)
Welcome to my blog for both #WIPITUP Wednesday and #SpankA2Z featuring J for James, Jeremy & Johnny!













I like names that start with J. Don't ask me why, I don't know. But as well as having two sons both of whom start with J, my heroes all start with J too.
Jeremy was the hero in Bracken Ridge my debut novel. James is the hero in my brand new release Rachel's Journey, and Johnny is the hero in my current WIP.

And here is a snippet out of my new release: 
This is just after the first time James spanked Rachel.


As Rachel carried on with her day her thoughts kept returning to James and the spanking he’d given her. She was surprised he’d carried through with this threat – she really didn’t think he had it in him.  

She’d been convinced that if he had decided to follow through and spank her, it would have been playful, just a couple of light swats as a good-natured warning. He was always so laid-back and placid that to find an authoritative side to him came as quite a shock.

 He’d spanked her hard too – those few swats had been serious – judging by the fire still radiating from her backside they’d been pretty close to full-force. And she didn’t know how she felt about that. Happy? - that he was a man of his word, and she found his authoritative side attractive? Or upset that he had spanked her? 

She wasn’t sure. The only emotion she felt at the moment was shock. And, if she was honest, that crush she’d had on him forever had probably grown, just a little bit.

  1. Great excerpt Kelly! Is she happy he kept his word or upset...I can relate to these feelings and suspect happy will win out :)

  2. Sometimes when they actually come through with that threat of a spanking it is shocking! But I think happy usually wins in the end:)-

  3. A man of his word with an authoritative side that she finds attractive. Of course she's going to be happy. ☺

  5. Discovering you may like something that some think is passé, can be confusing, but I think she'll come to love him spanking her. :)
