His To Breed now Given to the Savage is LIVE ON AMAZON


It took some work but His To Breed has been re-titled, re-blurbed and had the cover modified and is now live on Amazon! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the adult tagging saga is behind me.

Below is the original blurb which we've watered down for Amazon as well as a buy link. I do have a HUGE favor to ask those of you who bought the book when it was up as His To Breed. It would help me tremendously in sales ranks and visibility if those of you who bought His To Breed would return the book to Amazon and re-buy it as Given to the Savage. Amazon allows up to 7 days for a return with a full refund so it wouldn't cost you anything and the process is very easy - I'll detail it below:

  • On Amazon's main page, hover over 'Your Account' (next to the search field) and a menu will open.
  • Click on 'Manage Your Content and Devices'
  • Find His To Breed on your list and click on the 'Actions' button (little box with 3 dots inside it)
  • Click on 'Return for Refund'
  • Confirm by clicking once more on 'Return for Refund' (no need to fill in the reason, it will show up as 'other')
Whether or not you do this, I want to say how much I appreciate your support. I've had more e-mails and private messages of support in the last couple of days as I've tried to remain calm and not break down over the adult tag craziness than I ever expected. You're all awesome. Thank you so much.

Blurb

In the aftermath of a plague which brought civilization to its knees and left most of the world’s female population sterile, breeders—the few women who remain fertile—have become a precious commodity. Breeders live in relative comfort, but upon reaching adulthood they are tasked with bearing one child after another to carry on the species. Frequent medical assessments keep the breeders healthy and harsh punishments keep them in line.


As a breeder who has just come of age, Rowan knows she will soon be little more than a slave, but when she dares to resist her fate the penalty is severe. After a shameful, public chastisement and a thorough, humiliating examination to determine her suitability for child-bearing, Rowan is given to a savage from outside the community—a huge brute of a man named Silas—to be bred.

Against all expectations, Rowan finds herself drawn to her new captor. Brave, ruggedly handsome, and even kind at times, Silas is everything the men who enslaved her were not. When the time comes for him to breed her, despite the circumstances something deep inside her begs for him to take her long and hard. But while she soon finds herself longing to be his forever, Rowan knows that eventually those who gave her to him will try to take her back. When that day comes will Silas fight to keep her at his side even if it means risking everything he loves?

Publisher’s Note: Given to the Savage is an erotic novel that includes spankings, sexual scenes, extensive medical play, anal play, elements of BDSM, and more. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.

His To Breed Pulled from Amazon

**Updated Friday, August 22**
We've retitled the book as Given to the Savage and modified both cover and blurb and it's now up on Amazon.




 Good morning everyone. I've been getting a lot of e-mails and messages asking where His To Breed went and I figure it's easier to put up this post in case I miss anyone when replying.

If you've been following along, Amazon adult tagged His To Breed with vague information as to why it was tagged. My publisher updated the blurb but it wasn't enough. They wanted changes to title and cover as well. I'm bummed because I loved all three of those things but if we left it as it was, it would remain invisible so we pulled the book late last night and are working to have it up for sale again soon. I'm sad about it but it is what it is. I will put up a post as soon as I have the ok that all is well.

Thanks to everyone for your support, your kind words and messages, your shares and tweets and just everything. It's all very much appreciated.

Breeders: Property of the Colony #Spanking #BDSM



At the time of writing this post, His To Breed remains locked away in Amazon's Adult Tag dungeon. I'm sad over it, but I also realize it's not within my control so as I was looking through excerpts to share, I chose a slightly heavier one today. This is the scene where Rowan is being exiled from the colony and given to Silas for breeding. I might have cried during the writing and I definitely cry a little every time I read it. 

* * * *

“One last thing,” Commander Norrin said, gesturing to one of the guards who stepped forward. “Tag her.”

Before anyone could move, the guard was on her, taking her arm, turning her wrist up. Rowan sucked in a breath when she saw the laser he held.

Silas grabbed the guard’s wrist. “What is that?” he asked.

“She is property of the colony first,” the commander answered.

Property. That was all she was.

“It is unnecessary. I have no desire to keep another mouth to feed. I will return her as soon as I am able to,” Silas offered.

It felt like a betrayal, that. She glanced at Silas as he said it, then dropped her head. Mercenary. He was just a mercenary.

“This is non-negotiable,” Commander Norrin said. “Your medicines are waiting, ready for you to take to your people. Everything is in place, as agreed upon. Be wise, Silas.”

Rowan looked into Silas’ eyes but he masked any emotion too well to read. He glanced at her, then exhaled, releasing the guard’s arm and nodding. The guard then placed the laser against that vulnerable, delicate skin inside her wrist and pushed the button. Rowan heard a sound, it was her own gasp. The pain was intense but momentary. When he released her, she looked down at her reddened skin where a small dark red image, complex in design, now was. It was the symbol of the colony. She knew that there beneath her skin was the locator device placed in such a way that its unsanctioned removal would result in her death.

She looked up to find Silas studying it as well.

Commander Norrin then took Silas’ arm and turned him so they had their backs to her. She wasn’t sure if she was meant to hear Commander Norrin’s next words but she did, even though they did not make sense to her. “Remember our agreement well. I am not one to give second chances.”

She looked at the side of Silas’ face. He looked at Commander Norrin, his expression hard.

“You’re free to go,” Commander Norrin said, stepping back with a grand gesture toward the door.

Silas still looked at the man and it was a moment before he turned to her and touched her back. “Go,” he said.

Rowan walked out of the small cell and followed a guard down the corridor and up the stairs into the courtyard. They all walked in silence and stopped before a loaded wagon. For a moment, she looked at it and wondered if he would make her pull it. The colony would not give an animal away, they were too valuable. And for as much technology that had survived from the developed world, this was still the most basic and most commonly used mode of transport.

“Up,” Silas said to her.

She looked at him, then at the loaded wagon. Surely he couldn’t mean that she should sit while he walked with the load and her own weight on top of it.

“Up,” he repeated, this time taking hold of her and lifting her to sit on top of the largest sack there.


She did not understand this man. One moment he was almost kind to her, but the next, just as cold as the rest of them. No one spoke as the gates were opened and Silas took up the wagon and pulled. Rowan hugged her cape tight over her shoulders and looked up to meet the shadowy faces of the breeders who watched from behind their windows. One waved a hand as a tear slid down her cheek. It was her friend, Lis. Rowan raised her hand to the girl who would come of age in two months’ time. She wondered what would happen to Lis and wiped at her own eyes as the heavy gates of the colony closed behind her.

Breeders are Made to Breed #Spanking #BDSM

I woke this morning to the news that my book, His To Breed, has been adult tagged on Amazon which basically means the book is up for sale but won't come up for a general search unless you jump through a hoop or two...

The cover here does provide a link directly to the Amazon page. I'm hoping my publisher gets it all worked out and that I won't have to give up this gorgeous cover! Wish me luck.

In the meantime, I'm visiting with Trent Evans with a hot little excerpt from the book so head on over and check it out. Just click here.

His To Breed Release Day! #Spanking #BDSM




Today is the day! His To Breed is now up for sale on Amazon (to start and other sites within the next few days). I'm kind of excited about this, in case you hadn't noticed. Today, I'm sharing a scene between Rowan and Silas. They've just arrived at his settlement and are now finally alone in his home. And it's time for Rowan's first spanking... (If you've missed the previous excerpts, click here and here.

* * * * *

“Take off your dress. I’d like you fully naked for punishment," Silas said.

Rowan slowly pulled the dress up over her head and stood naked before him. His eyes traveled the length of her, pausing at her breasts, her nipples hardening beneath his hungry gaze. Something inside Rowan’s belly stirred at the way he looked at her, at the desire in his eyes. She’d seen it before too, at the waterfall when he’d kissed her, and what she felt now was the same as it had been then. But when she looked at the wooden paddle beside him, that lust turned to fear.

He followed her gaze. “I don’t plan on using that tonight. Just my hand at first. I want to see how you take a spanking.”

She dropped her gaze to her feet and nodded. Silas reached out to touch the small patch of dark hair between her legs, tugging on it. She put her hands on his shoulders to push back, although it wasn’t painful. The opposite, in fact.

“Hands on your head,” Silas said. “When I inspect you, you put your hands at the back of your head.”

“Yes, Sir,” she said, doing as he said.

“How were you disciplined at the Colony?” he asked, his fingers still inside her hair there. When he turned his gaze up to hers, heat flushed her face.

“They paddled or strapped us, the female guards.”

“I want to know about you, not any of the other breeders. How many times were you paddled or strapped?”

“A few.”

“Why?”

“Once I took some of the candy Captain Amro kept. The other times I...” she hesitated. “They found me...we weren’t allowed to touch ourselves here,” she said, gesturing to her sex.


His expression changed. “How did they catch you?” he asked, grinning. 

“Inspections.”

He nodded. “Open your legs wider.”

When she did, he slipped his hand underneath to just touch her sex before finding her swelling nub. She made an involuntary sound when he rubbed it between his fingers and when he looked up at her, she averted her gaze.

“No, look at me when I touch you.”

She did, but just barely, her face burning red as her thighs grew sticky. When he stood to his full height, she almost stepped back, but with one hand at her back, he kept her close and brought his mouth down over hers, his tongue sliding inside as his fingers slipped between her lower lips. She found herself moaning into his mouth, her hands leaving her head and coming to touch his hard stomach, his chest, not pushing away, just touching instead. But too soon he stopped and she felt his wet fingers sliding up along her belly toward her breast. She placed her hands back on her head while Silas sat down and watched her face as he squeezed one nipple hard.

“You distract me,” he said, his voice hoarse.

She looked down at his lap, at the bulge that pressed against his pants there.

“Lay across my lap for your spanking,” he said, his tone different. 


She hesitated, opening her mouth, wondering what she’d done wrong. 

“Down, now. Let’s go.”
