Sunday Snippets: Mira’s Miracle and taming the wildness within

Today’s snippet comes from Mira’s Miracle, my latest book that will be released on January 10th from Blushing Books. Set within Maren Smith’s Castle world of a BDSM/kink playground, Mira from Desire in Any Language discovers what it is like to experience her first love.


I protest whenever she does so, but at the same time my heart swells with her self-assurance. I never knew I could like someone who takes without asking, who gives without being requested, and who loves without wondering why. For Hana, life consists not of polite rules but passions that erupt at any moment. Yet, she works by day as a diplomat. My Hana, the woman who throws every propriety to the wind, helps to smooth protocol for everyone else. Does her sophisticated, tactful job persona make it more exciting to abandon all rules with me? Or does she work as a diplomat in order to tame the wildness within? And how did she ever end up with a normal and boring girl like me?

Desire in Any Language, Blushing
Mira thought she wanted a spanking.  What she got was love.

On her own for the first time, Mira is studying abroad for her translator’s certificate.  Unfortunately, the heady excitement of dance clubs, late-night parties, and endless shopping quickly distracts her from her educational goals.  Mira’s advisor offers her private tutoring, but the combined pressures of culture and language difference threaten Mira’s progress at school.  She is unable to get her act together until she makes a discovery that horrifies and tantalizes her: in her new country, corporal punishment is a way of life.  The secret to her academic success just might also fulfill her wildest, unspoken dreams.


Sexy. Seductive. Dangerous. A poignant and compelling read.


Mira’s Miracle (January 10th, 2014!)

Whisked away to the fairytale Castle for a dream vacation, Mira confronts her darkest fears.


Vacationing at Master Marshall’s world-renowned Castle should have spelled Fantasy Land, but for Mira the trip means paying a debt. She promised to work hard at her translator’s certificate course while her advisor went on maternity leave, but distraction arrives in the form of her first love. Diplomat Hana Takahashi, from Desire in Any Language, captures Mira’s total attention. Between Hana’s stringent embassy security and Mira’s draconian school dormitory curfew, their stolen kisses drive Mira wild with desire. Hana makes a bet with Mira: keep up with her schoolwork or take a trip of Hana’s choice, according to Hana’s rules. No veto power.


When Mira presents her inadequate end-of-term report, Hana books a dream vacation—of Hana’s dreams. Safe within the Castle, the elaborate role playing kink haven, Hana turns Mira into her little girl. Complete with a private nurse, playroom with its nanny in charge, and a schoolroom filled with naughty pupils and a stern teacher, the Castle’s ageplay wing reduces Mira to a child from the moment of her arrival. Hana’s word is law, and all of the Castle employees carry out her orders for Mira.


However, Mira’s natural resistance leads to tantrums, defiance, and spankings from every adult who assists with her care. When she encounters a tutor who triggers her deepest fears, she must face her residual trauma over the duplicitous “Mistress Susan.” Is Mira ready for the maternal nurturing offered by Hana, or will her unhealed wounds drive everyone away? Can she become Hana’s little girl, or will she safeword out of the Castle to return to everyday life…without Hana? Will there be a miracle for Mira?


Warning: contains ageplay, mouth-soaping, spankings, and sex scenes
