After I wrote Desire in Any Language and Mira’s Miracle, I always planned to write a third book. Things got complicated, though, so the plans never came to fruition. Instead, I wrote a serial on my blog called Fire of Desire (list of links is here)describing what happens after Mira and Hana’s happily ever after. (Hint: It takes a while to get to “happily.”) Trinity, the Nurse from Mira’s Miracle, visits them in Korea…and gets tangled up in affairs of love. Her former Domme and lover, Graciela, comes to the rescue–but at a price. Trinity must pay for her unprofessional behavior.

I am only allowed 2,000 words for this scene, but the ending is available in Love Spanks 2015 the anthology. Pre-order your copy today, along with the other books! Pre-order the full book of Mistress on Her Knees here (available March 1)!

Mistress on Her Knees-Amazon

Mistress on Her Knees (now available for pre-order!)

Thou shalt not covet thy host’s submissive

When a Domme loves a Domme, strange things can happen. When a Domme loves a Domme who is her former submissive and cheated with her best friend, all of the usual fun with handcuffs turns into something darker.

Graciela struggles to control her attraction to the headstrong, beautiful woman who broke her heart ten years ago. She offers temporary shelter to a fellow human in crisis, nothing more. But when Trinity buckles under Graciela’s righteous anger and begs for forgiveness, Graciela’s resolve wavers. Can she ever trust again? Does Trinity deserve a second chance, or is this yet another manipulation?

What Not to Do with Your Chocolate Cross …

By Louisa Bacio

It’s bad enough when Easter rolls around, and children across the world eat the heads off sweet bunnies. Or Christmas and Santa gets decapitated. The husband has a tendency to buy gifts that are a little bit, let’s say non-traditional.

A few years ago, I opened a chocolate cross. What was I supposed to do with it? It seems a bit blasphemous to eat it. Right?

[Ana’s note: It’s chocolate! Eat it! Jesus said to take and eat, right? 😉 ]

So rather than putting together a recipe of what to do, Ana suggested what not to do!

[Ana’s note: For reference, Louisa mentioned her chocolate cross dilemma LAST Easter. I loved it so much that I’ve posted about it on the blog once and still refer to it. I’m sure Chickie empathizes.]

  • Melt it – Oh my, that’s just wrong. As a base for most recipes, chocolate is melted.
  • Suck it – Rather than biting, you know how some people prefer to suck? The shape may be perfect, but the idea is not.
  • Dip it in marshmallow – Such a nice contrast of chocolate and cream, but mental picture = oh no!
  • Play with it – I’d rather not say anything else on the subject, but it is a bit phallic.
    [Ana’s note: This is the benefit of living in a F/F world!]
  • Eat it – In any sense of the word.

And on that final note … I’m not sure if it’s worse but they also sell a chocolate Jesus fish. Hey, wanna bake it?

Make sure to read my contribution for #LoveSpanks, “Sweet Sherrie.”

There’s nothing quite as sweet as two friends, tussling between the sheets. The “shy one” Sherrie wants to explore a physical relationship, but not before teaching her sorority sister bestie Desiree a few lessons on teasing.

Any ideas what not to do with a religious artifact turned into a sweet confection?

Leigh Ellwood

We begin a new year, and for many that means a new eating plan, diet, etc. I promised myself last year that I would put myself through the torture of a food regimen that deprived me and offered little in the way of results. Just eat less and move more. Easier said than done, but I find lately some things I’ve done on the advice of others have helped improved my mood. Maybe the weight will come, or go, later.

Two things I’ve done: cut out caffeine after 2PM and stop eating after 8PM. Lessening the carbs and trying a different kind of breakfast. If this sounds familiar, it’s adapted from the Bulletproof Diet, which I read this month. Do a search, though, and you’ll find people have adjusted it to their living. One recipe I found, I’ve tweaked and added to my routine. It’s for Morning Butter Tea.

What you need:

1 cup brewed organic tea. Right now I’m using a chocolate Pu-erh tea from Numi, but I imagine you can use other kinds to suit your taste. I tried this because of the health benefits of Pu-erh – it’s supposed to aid in weight loss, but if that’s not an issue use what you like.

1 packet stevia. I use Truvia.

1 tablespoon coconut oil. Coconut oil is supposed to improve brain function, which I need in the morning!

1 tablespoon butter. Not just any kind, though. It’s recommended to use grass-fed butter because it’s better for you. Kerrygold is a popular brand, but if you know of any others I’m interested.

1 tablespoon raw cacao powder. I use Navitas Naturals brand because it’s pure powder with no added sugar. Chocolate is good for antioxidants, so yes it’s health food. 😛

Recipe is simple. Combine all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. I have a Vitamix and usually give it 30 seconds at settings 5-7. It’s important to blend rather than stir because the butter and oil are mixed well and you don’t get the residual oily sensation. Just blend and drink – it’s like a chocolate tea latte!

BTW, here is the video from which I adapted the recipe.

This recipe isn’t relative to any of my stories, but it’s something new I’m trying in order to improve my productivity and mood. I’m not interested in slimming down into a bikini right now, but I want to write more, and write well. The Bulletproof book pointed out ways not only to become fit, but improve the mind. I improve my mind, I improve my stories.

Since this story takes place in a bar, I thought the perfect recipe had to be something to do with nuts or pretzels. But then I realized it’s not really a bar unless they offer buffalo wings. Neither of the ladies in the story partakes of this dish, but they had good reason for keeping their fingers clean. 😉

Why I write F/F? There was never a plan to write lesbian romances. The first story I ever wrote for public consumption was an action story that had the typical male/female romance. So freaking boring (and I say that as a straight male). So I started thinking about what I needed to make a story exciting to myself, and to make it less cliche. I finally realized how much I enjoyed writing female characters. If I made the women fall in love with each other, I could have twice as many women per story. So it was more about writing women than writing lesbians.

Bio: Geonn Cannon is the author of 20 novels (and counting). He was born in Oklahoma and spends his free time thinking up cool and exciting things to do. Then he creates fictional characters and has them to all the cool and exciting things for him, since it’s much easier than actually going outside himself. Geonn has written a tie-in novel to the television series Stargate SG-1, Two Roads, and a script for a web series version of Riley Parra. Contrary to popular belief, he does sleep. Usually every day.

[Ana’s note: When I explained the “Taste Us!” series to Jae, she wondered what recipe to post. She gave an example of a recipe she could not use. I loved it and asked her to share with you. Here it is!]

Jae

I have been writing almost all of my life and writing lesbian fiction for over a decade. To me, writing romances between women is twice the fun because it means I get to create two strong female characters and watch them fight, love, and grow together.

Jorie, one of the main characters in my paranormal romance novel Second Nature and in my short story “The Snow Liger,” is infamous for her horrible cooking that has been known to send people screaming into the night, never to be heard of again. Her mate, Griffin, is a shape-shifter who can turn into a four hundred pound liger, so she likes to eat—a lot. They might not sound like a match made in heaven, but they learned to adjust…and Jorie figured out how to cook shape-shifter-style.

Here is her tried and proven recipe:

  1. Throw twenty pounds of raw steak onto the table.
  2. Get out of the way.

About Jae

Jae grew up amidst the vineyards and gently sloping hills of southwestern Germany. She spent most of her childhood with her nose buried in a book, earning her the nickname “professor.”

The writing bug bit her at the age of eleven. For the last nine years, she’s been writing mostly in English.

She used to work as a psychologist but gave up her day job in December 2013 to become a full-time writer and a part-time editor. As far as she’s concerned, it’s the best job in the world.

When she’s not writing, she likes to spend her time reading, indulging her ice cream and office supply addictions, and watching way too many crime shows.
