#SexySnippets from Secret Santa by Ariel Storm

I’m taking part in a new (to me) blog hop called Sexy Snippets today. I’m sharing seven sentences from my new release Secret Santa.

All she wants for Christmas is a new flogger….

Emily Cabrera and her sexy boss Alex West have kept their relationship under wraps for months. The risk of the rest of their office finding out about them keeps things nice and naughty. On the night of their office holiday gift exchange, Emily slips away to Alex’s office so they can participate in a private gift exchange of their own. In this holiday themed sequel to Her Dominant Boss, an erotic present takes their relationship to a new level of naughty.

7 Sentences

“I have a little present for you,” I said as I locked the door behind me.

Wiggling the package in front of me, I took a few steps forward until I reached his desk. I propped a hip on one side and he closed out of the screen he’d been working on, finally turning his attention on me.

“Mmm, look at you.” His eyes followed his words, and his gaze flicked over my body. I warmed from his glance. “You look good enough to eat.”

“I love the curves of your ass.” He cupped one cheek before giving it a smack. “But I love it more that spankings get you fucking wet.” Alex slapped my ass again, harder this time. I bit down on my lower lip as the subtle sting subsided. Warmth spread across my cheeks and the lips of my pussy grew wetter.

I sighed as the first bite of the leather flogger’s tongue connected with my skin. Alex didn’t relent. He struck me again, the leather strands making equal contact with both my exposed cheeks. His figure-eight pattern grew steadier as the pleasurable assault continued. Beyond the stinging on my ass cheeks, incredible heat filled my sensitive skin. Moisture flooded my pussy and I could no longer hold back my moans.

I reached Alex’s door and knocked softly once, before entering. Seeing him behind his desk immediately made my breath hitch. The overhead lighting shone on his sandy-colored locks, my fingers itched to touch his meticulously groomed hair.

He wore a navy suit, crisp white shirt and red tie, his nod toward the holiday season and the festivities taking place in the office today. He’d yet to take his eyes off his computer screen, he worked tirelessly. Yet he maintained a perfectly organized appearance. I knew he’d been at it for nearly twelve hours, but he didn’t have a hair out of place or even a wrinkle in his suit. Always so controlled. How I longed to mess him up a bit.

“I have a little present for you,” I said as I locked the door behind me.

Yes, please.

Saturday Spankings Excerpt from Marital Bonds

I’m taking part in the weekly hop Saturday Spankings, celebrating the release of Marital Bonds. Read on for the excerpt and make sure you visit all the other blogs taking part in this hop!

After three years of struggling, I’m tired. I miss my husband. I miss our intimacy.

Three years ago tragedy struck and destroyed our sex life. It nearly ruined our marriage.

Thanks to help from a sensuality coach, I’ve got three assignments to act out with my husband, each designed to help us find our way back to each other and reignite the flame on our once searing sex life.

Excerpt

His teeth scraped at my nipples, spreading fire through my chest. I loved it wild. Loved this man giving me these sensations. I suddenly remembered the thought I’d had earlier. The one where I’d pictured my husband doing wickedly wonderful things to my body with the silicone spatula.

“Eric,” I tugged gently on his hair. “I want you to do something.”

“Anything.”

I searched our area for the spatula and scooped it off the floor next to me. “Use this?”

“I’d almost forgotten about this fun little toy.” He looked at me a few beats, his eyes softening. “You’re sure? There’s always…next time.”

His voice caught on the last two words, as though he was worried I’d somehow crawl back into the shell I’d spent the last three years inside. I wouldn’t though. I wasn’t. No matter what had happened in the past, I’d been foolish and punished myself—and by extension Eric—denying us this. Our sex life was amazing. Time hadn’t changed that.

I reached for him, and cradled his face between my hands. “There will be a next time. Many, many next times.”

He turned his head and kissed the inside of my wrist before removing my hands from either side of his face. The soft expression left his gaze and was replaced by the heat and intensity that made me squirm. Eric had always had the ability to just level me with a gaze. We’d always had that kind of connection and thank god time hadn’t diminished that.

Eric trailed the spatula over the mounds of my breasts, letting the cool silicone make contact with the tight points of my nipples. He gave one a light slap, the silicone making a loud popping noise and leaving a slight sting on my nipple. He treated the other breast to the same exquisite treat.

“How does my girl like that?” He asked as he gave me another light tap.

“Mmmm, I love it.”

“I want to use this on your luscious culo. Stand up.”

I rose and waited to see what way Eric wanted me. Would he have me stand in front of him or would he bend me over the arm of the couch?

“Turn around.”

I obeyed, my pulse pounding in my ears and my arousal mounting. The bite of the silicone striking my ass was the only answer I needed. The next strike came quickly, the slap of the spatula against my cheek landed with a sharp thwack. Warmth and the sting from the blows spread across my ass. My pussy grew wetter with each strike and my clit is pulsed with need.

My husband knows what pushes my buttons. This would be one of them. I’m a freak, I love it rough. I need both the pleasure and the pain.

Midweek Tease from Marital Bonds by Ariel Storm

Today I’m taking part in the Midweek Tease! Here’s a snippet from my new release Marital Bonds.

After three years of struggling, I’m tired. I miss my husband. I miss our intimacy.

Three years ago tragedy struck and destroyed our sex life. It nearly ruined our marriage.

Thanks to help from a sensuality coach, I’ve got three assignments to act out with my husband, each designed to help us find our way back to each other and reignite the flame on our once searing sex life.

Excerpt

Eric cupped my head between his hands and brought our mouths together. The old spark was there, just as it had been every time we kissed, touched and the handfuls of times I’d been able to actually make love to my husband in the past three years.

It was there but it was only a glimmer. Nowhere near the kind of inferno it used to be. Maybe it could become that again. Eric edged his hands down my neck, down to my shoulders and he slowly let them slide further south. He stopped them just shy of my ass.

“Andi?” He asked, using my nick-name. His eyes were full of unspoken questions that I knew I couldn’t answer, despite how badly I wanted to.

I used my body to say the things I couldn’t. Leaning toward him, I unbuttoned his olive green button-down shirt. His warm skin beneath my palms made my pulse quicken. He groaned. He hadn’t had this much skin to skin contact with me in a while.

And it had been years since I had initiated any sort of contact like this. I pulled the ends of his shirt out of his pants and unbuckled his belt. He encircled my wrists and brought my gaze up to his.

“I want this so much, but don’t push yourself for me. Remember what happened the last time.”

My face fell at the mention of the last time I’d tried to have sex with my husband.

“I’m not trying to ruin things, I swear.” He brushed the hair off my face and dropped a kiss on my forehead. “There is nothing that I want more than to tear your panties off, bunch that skirt around your waist and take you right here against this wall.”
