“After Ana,” along with Maren Smith’s “Mistress Mine,” is a companion piece to Ana Adored, our co-authored novel that will be available from Blushing Books in November 2014. Ana Klein, a preschool teacher’s assistant, looks for plant advice on an online site, Heaven in Horticulture. She finds Miranda Hardwick, the Mistress of the Castle, a high-end BDSM resort. While “Mistress Mine” shows Miranda and Ana enjoying their kinky side, “After Ana” gives us a glimpse into the reason they commit to each other.

 

“After Ana” will be available in Spank or Treat November 1st! Watch this space for a link to the listing.

Taliasman blurb:

 

Born to a destitute woodworker who wanted a son to carry on the family business, Talia grew up with one phrase on her lips: “If I had been born a boy.” If she had been born a boy, she would have been cherished, supported, and launched into the world with her father’s legacy. As only a worthless girl, she toils all day long to earn her handful of inferior grain.

Far away in the heavenly palace, Queen Vina receives a mysterious coin necklace from Nicodemus, teller of stories. Compelled by the throbbing heartbeat, she scours the earth to come across Talia, enslaved to a family who never wanted her. Rather than admit her motives, Vina purchases the girl with a sack full of gold. Furious, betrayed, and homesick, Talia endeavors to share her misery with the entire palace. Vina, afraid to confess her love, allows herself to become trapped in the role of brutal slave owner.

Talia, bred to expect nothing but misery, faces the first choice of her life. Will she accept love, even if it comes from an unlikely source? Or will she reject the one who offers her everything?

    It’s hard to trust people when you feel like you can only rely on yourself, but Anna shows us in this scene that sometimes trusting your loved ones with yourself is exactly what you need. I love reading Anastasia’s stories because there not only great reads, but they always hit something deep and leave me feeling better for reading them after I’m done!! Thanks for a gret start to the Spank or Treat Weekend!!

    Your stories always delve into the heart of the matter whether it be trust, love, or being there for someone. I love how Ana sees into the heart of Miranda and just reaches out with her offering of herself. Thank you for sponsoring this blog hop… They are so much fun. Blessings, R.

    Ana and Miranda are trying to make their world good again. After a major tragedy it’s hard to grieve completely sometimes. I think women,because they are nurturers are better at dealing with this than men are. Women try to help each other and those around them because “that is what we do”

    What a beautiful story. The love and trust between Miranda and Ana is the heart and soul of their relationship. That is why I love all your story’s. Letting go and allowing yourself to love and trust isn’t easy but when you do, it opens up a wonderful place in your heart.
    You open yourself to me and others and that’s why I love you.
    Love and blessings,

    I thought it was wonderful to see that Ana would do anything for Miranda. It is great that she was worried about Miranda’s state of mind. The witch costume with its uneven hem and the lack of the knickers made me laugh as I haven’t heard the term of knickers except from my parents. Thank you for a great, beautiful inspiring story about loss of a dear friend and new found friendship

    So this is where the bunny came in. Ha ha. Yes, she totally have a playboy bunny tattooed somewhere to symbolize her bunny. 😉 Witches, spoons, and bunnies oh my! Can’t wait to read more of Ana and Miranda and I love D/s stories for this simple fact… they belong to each other dominate and submissive.

    I loved this story! Of course, having recently lost a friend myself, I totally empathized with Miranda. Sometimes it’s so hard to explain why someone was so dear to you. Ana is so sweet and caring and besides, she got spanked to help Miranda heal! How cool is that?

    Aww… What a sweet ending. I love how you left off (That you can accomplish a near-tear-jerker while in a 3 sentence proximity of a wooden spoon reference is very impressive).

    What an emotional, entertaining scene! Ana is definitely a master – or should that be mistress 🙂 – of topping from the bottom, and makes it clear that being the submissive in a relationship can be a lot work.

    But if this scene is any indication, it’s not fair to call her “submissive”. She just happens to be the one who gets spanked. 🙂

    The witch costume was the perfect touch! And you established the emotional vulnerability so deftly with such a short excerpt. AND a wooden spoon! All hail the queen!

    The overwhelming loss definitely came through during this excerpt. Miranda’s internal struggle also came thought. I equally helpless watching Ana try to coax Miranda to open up. The witch costume was a nice break in the emotional tension and a nice comic relief. Nice excerpt and very well written.
