The HER ALIEN HERO #playlist and another sneak peek #1NS #scifirom @DecadentPub

Hello dear readers! We’re one day closer to the release of HER ALIEN HERO. Today I want to share with you the playlist, but first an excerpt mentioning one of the songs in the playlist…

HerAlienHero_500x750

Cooper pressed a button on the console and love songs filled the room, some current and others from the past. Enrique Iglesias whispered an offer to be someone’s hero.
Melinda reached across the table and grasped his hand, her eyes sparkling. “I know it’s crazy, but every time I hear this song, I think of you.”

“Me?” Did she want a hero? He wasn’t prepared to be one for anyone, not with the secret he kept. A lover, sure, but he didn’t consider himself brave. Chivalrous, maybe, but he had too many fears to be anyone’s rescuer. Perhaps he behaved more like his father than he thought.

“Yes. Don’t you remember the grade-nine dance? It was the only one I ever remember you coming to. This song came on, and a bunch of couples made their way to the middle of the gymnasium. But, no matter where people moved, I always had a clear line of sight to you.” She squeezed his fingers. “I kept hoping you would ask me to dance, but you never did.”

His chest tightened. He remembered the night he’d snuck out of the house and rode his bike through the city to see if she’d decided to attend. How he’d wanted to ask her to dance, spend even a moment in her company, but his mother had warned him if anyone ever found out what he was, he’d end up in a lab before she even knew he’d been taken. And during puberty, he’d had far less control of his form. Even touching a girl would have, without a doubt, taken away all his ability to manipulate his image. Cooper had never wanted to take the chance. He’d dragged his gaze away from her, after staring at her for an entire song, and left, riding home in the pouring rain. But after years of practice and no one finding out, he took more risks, tonight the biggest of all.

And here’s the song…

Hyunkyung Han’s Top 5 Favorite #Spanking Implements ~ SEOUL SPANKINGS @AnastasiaVitsky #1NS

Seoul Spankings bannerHyunkyung Han’s Top 5 Favorite Spanking Implements

Post by author Anastasia Vitsky

Love it or hate it, Fifty Shades of Gray has gotten people interested in kink and willing to admit it. Even if you don’t want the full lifestyle, haven’t you considered spicing up your love life?

You’re in luck! Learn about five easy-to-use spanking implements, hand-picked for you by Hyunkyung Han. CEO of the multi-billion-dollar Han, Inc. that sells everything from stationery to clothes, she has a penchant for spanking. When she researches Madame Eve’s exclusive date-matching services, she expects to receive a bride rather than a one-time date. What does she expect from her future bride? To submit to spanking, of course. Good thing Indigo Adams is up for the challenge.

In Seoul Spankings, Hyunkyung uses a few tools for spanking Indi. She’s shared them with you here, so you can begin a kinky fun journey of your own.

Safety note: While many people enjoy whips, flogger, belts, canes, or cat-of-nine-tails, they are dangerous implements that require training to use without causing injury. Never use a brand-new implement without practice, preferably by testing it out on yourself.

Hyunkyung Han’s #5 Favorite Spanking Implement:

#5 HAND

That’s right, the hand attached to your wrist! Unless you have incredible strength or a layer of calluses, using your hand to spank offers a built-in safety limit plus ultimate convenience. You don’t need to buy a hand, find it in your toy bag, or (I hope!) fix a broken one. When a spanking is given with hand to bare bottom, the skin-to-skin contact offers a wonderful, sweet intimacy.

Caution: Excessive hand spanking may result in repetitive stress injuries for the spanker. Focus on sensual pleasure or switch to an implement if you want to increase the intensity.

Ana’s rule: Hand spanking often hurts the spanker more than the spankee. Hand spankings make good rewards or foreplay rather than punishment.

Ease of use: Very High

Ouch factor: Very Low

 

#4 LEATHER SPANKING GLOVE

If you love the intimacy of a hand spanking but hate the pain it causes for the spanker, try adding protection for your hand. A leather glove, perhaps with the tips cut off, will allow you to spank harder and longer without as much pain (for yourself!). Another option is a “spanking buddy,” or a piece of leather with a strap around your palm. The extra sting is sure to create pleasure for both you and your partner, and beginner spankees often tolerate leather (a soft, thuddy impact) better than wood (a sharp, intense, and immediate pain). Think of the difference between a soft, warming glow of a spicy curry rather than the five-alarm heat of hot peppers.

Caution: The glove should fit properly or may cause chafing.

Ana’s rule: None. I am allergic to leather and can’t use it.

Ease of use: High

Ouch factor: Low

 

#3 WOODEN COOKING CHOPSTICK

Longer and sturdier than its tableware cousin, cooking chopsticks can range from twelve to twenty inches and are often made of bamboo. They are inexpensive and come with pretty designs. While unwieldy for lengthy spanking sessions, the lightweight thin shape offers pleasure similar to a cane without as much pain or expense.

Caution: The cheapest cooking chopsticks may break on impact. As with any wooden implement, be careful of splinters.

Ana’s rule: As with wooden spoons, you will need two sets of cooking chopsticks in the kitchen—one for business and another for pleasure.

Ease of use: High

Ouch factor: Medium

 

#2 RIDING CROP

A riding crop is a perfect intermediate tool for a spanker wanting more intensity without needing training. Its rigid handle (rather than the floppiness of a belt or flogger) is similar to other beginner implements, and its use is intuitive. While the small surface area of the rubber tip can inflict serious pain, a lighter touch can mean a more sensuous, gentle experience.

Caution: As with any implement, begin slowly and gently. Spank with the rubber tip rather than the full length of the handle.

Ana’s rule: It’s not a wooden spoon, but it will do.

Ease of use: Medium

Ouch factor: Medium to High

 

#1 Favorite Spanking Implement ~ THE GLORIOUS WOODEN SPOON!

This wondrous cooking utensil is the perfect tool for spanking! Cheap, ubiquitous, and easy to explain to nosy visitors, the humble wooden spoon offers great spanking fun without need for expensive tools, training, or preparation. The small surface area and wooden material pack a punch, but the spoon’s familiarity as Mom’s tool to stir cake batter reduces its fear factor.

Caution: Cheap, smaller spoons will crack on impact. Invest a few dollars more to get a spoon that will last longer.

Ana’s rule: I always use two spoons while cooking. One for business, and one for pleasure. I’ll let you decide which is which.

Ease of use: High

Ouch factor: High

(Okay. Maybe I cheated. Maybe the wooden spoon is my favorite spanking implement, not Hyunkyung’s. Good thing she’s too busy spanking Indigo to find me…)

 

What are your favorite spanking implements?

Ana’s note: I will give away an autographed set of cooking chopsticks and wooden spoon to one random commenter on this post.

P.S. Don’t say Hyunkyung’s name wrong. She spanks for that. ;)

Seoul Spankings by Anastasia Vitsky

Broken-hearted when her live-in boyfriend impregnates her best frenemy, Indigo Adams accepts a one-way ticket to Seoul, South Korea, and a challenge from her Great-Aunt Matilda: Forget that boy. Go and make something of yourself.

Bruised from an international public relations nightmare as the new heir to the multi-billion-dollar Han Incorporated, Hyunkyung Han seeks positive publicity in the form of a wedding. She consults with Madame Eve to find a nice, well-behaved Korean American with bilingual and bicultural skills.

Instead, Madame Eve sends Indi, a naïve philosophy major graduate working for minimum wage at the local pub. Enraged to find Indi can’t speak one word of Korean, Hyunkyung orders her sent home on the next plane to Spillville, Iowa.

Then Hyunkyung shakes Indi’s hand, and the sparks fly. With all of her professional responsibilities, how can Hyunkyung allow herself to fall for the wrong woman? How can Indi feel attraction for a woman who despises her?

Seoul Spankings offers a light-hearted romp through the perils and joys of navigating an intercultural romance. Certain to delight all fans of a happily ever after with a kinky twist.

Excerpt:

“Say my name,” she demanded, startling me with her fierceness. Korean For Foreigners had told me saying someone’s name was rude.

“Hee-yon,” I stammered, unable to form the alien syllables. “Huh—huh-yawn.”

She pursed her lips, circling my chair. “Indi Go,” she enunciated, in the odd, separated manner seeming to order me from her presence. “Here I am not Ee Sajahng. I am Hyunkyung Han, and you will call me by name.”

“Ee,” I faltered. Some of her employees had said something familiar. “Ee?” I grasped onto the only sound I could replicate.

“Ee Sajahng,” she repeated. “Founder. Investor. A title, not a name. Call me Hyunkyung.” This time as she walked around me, her knee brushed against mine. A tiny gymnast vaulted somewhere underneath my ribs, and I spoke without thinking.

“Can’t I say HK?” After all, her staff called me Miss Go. Why insult her by butchering the sounds I couldn’t form?

She paused behind me, delaying long enough to highlight the ludicrous nature of my request. Yo, Barack ol’ buddy. I can call you BO, right?

“Sorry,” I mumbled.

“Americans are so familiar,” she said, in an undertone.

“Koreans are so formal!” I protested.

“Yes,” she answered, tapping one manicured finger against another. “Let’s show you how formal.”

Another sneak peek at HER ALIEN HERO ~ Meet Melinda #1NS #scifirom @DecadentPub

Hello my dear readers! I am very sorry. I promised you another sneak peek at HER ALIEN HERO and didn’t deliver. Yesterday got away from me, and today is heading that way, too. But, I wanted to give you a second excerpt from my upcoming release before I did anything else. This excerpt is from the very beginning of the story, and sets the scene as to where and when the story takes place. Enjoy!

~*~*~

HerAlienHero_500x750Melinda Rose tossed a quarter into the gleaming-white marble fountain near the porte cochère. I wish to find my soul mate, the man I’m going to marry, in the next year. She’d waited long enough, dated men of all ages and races, but had yet to come across her forever man.

Her friends leaned forward and stared at her, Michelle bobbing her head up and down as if waiting for her to say something.
Tara bumped Melinda’s hip, almost knocking her into Michelle. “So…? What did you wish for?”

“A billion dollars.” No way would she tell them all she wanted was a guy to settle down with. According to her online friends, she reigned as queen of single women, the one who tossed men away like she held her own “guy card” and then wrote books about them the way composers wrote music about their relationships.

She could tell when a man wanted her for nothing but sex. They offered effusive compliments, and sneaked quick peeks at other women in case someone younger or skinnier came along. Often, she didn’t object to a night or two of raw, dirty sex—her stories needed some fresh inspiration—but she grew tired of the game. How long did she have to wait to locate her future husband, her very own hero? At thirty-five, she hadn’t even had a nibble on her line, not a single relationship with any promise. Yet, a couple of her friends already enjoyed life with their second and third husbands. She only asked for one.

“So you can travel the world and sleep with a man from every country?” Amber’s eyes lit up at the thought, the poor thing having lost her husband in a motorcycle accident less than a year before.

Melinda cringed inside. She didn’t want to be the friend her peers lived their fantasies vicariously through. Why couldn’t she unearth a guy to spend the rest of her life with? “Sure. I’ll definitely have to stock up on condoms before I go on that trip.” Though, if her wish came true, she could bring a man, the man, with her. She just had to stumble upon him first.

Sabrina, Tara, Michelle, and Lauren all tossed coins into the fountain. What wishes did they make? As a child, Melinda never would have guessed she’d be sharing her hopes and dreams with readers in stories. If only one of them would come true.
