Happy Last Day with some Spanking Kink!

This is the last day in a couple of different ways. 

First, this is the supposed last day of the world: Happy Last Day of the World, people! :D

Next, today is the last day of the Candy Cane Kink Blog Hop. Any valid comment on this post will allow you entry into the contest to win an ebook and a $10 GC. See details here, then scroll the linky list below to visit other great authors!

Now, for a little bit of Friday Kink. Following is a little excerpt from the fairy tale I tweeked. Enjoy...

Serena’s Prince
Forever Wicked (#9)

By Ayla Ruse
Erotic Romance, Novella, Paranormal, BDSM

A frog, a curse and a broken promise. Sometimes punishment can be its own reward.

Serena never thought asking for help from a frog would result in her being naked and tied to her bed. She should be afraid. She should call for the guards. She definitely should not be… begging for more.
Prince Rennick needs to get his hands on Serena’s necklace -- the one item sure to break the curse that turned him into a frog. When an accident makes him temporarily human, he cannot help but use his dominant nature to bend Serena to his will.
What should have broken the curse turns into a desperate attempt to save Rennick’s life. As they try to find the key, Rennick demands much from Serena, but is she willing to surrender everything to this frog-turned-prince? 

Excerpt (R):

“And the real Serena is coming out,” he said sarcastically, chuckling. She was not amused. “You are too innocent to understand why I left the bed. I’ve not been with a woman since the curse was put upon me. And I don’t like to rush anything I do.”

“But --“

“Do not interrupt, please.” He stroked her cheek. “I will love your body. I will give you pleasure such as you have never known, but the time will be spent as I dictate.”

“What do you --“

Her words ended on a cry as he twisted one of her nipples. “I asked you not to interrupt, pet. You will do as I say. You will not disobey, or you will be punished. You will not argue, or you will be punished. If I want you to lie here for the next two hours while I stare at you, you will not complain. Am I understood?”

Serena blinked. Was the man insane? “You’ve got to be kidding.”

He popped his hand between her legs, the stinging slap on her pussy at once painful and exciting. “I never kid, Serena. Yes, I will make demands of you, but trust me when I say the rewards will be well worth your obedience.”

His words warred within her. It sounded exciting, but scary. What if he did something she didn’t like? She was about to ask, but he’d moved and was untying her arms. Before she could register what he was about, he pulled her over his lap with her butt thrust up in the air.

“Hey, wait. What are you doing?”

He held one hand on the back of her neck, keeping her upper body pushed down toward the floor.

“You, my darling, are in need of a spanking. You were unkind to me this week, and you’re showing belligerence now. I’ll serve you ten, and you must count them for me.”

“You can’t spank me!” she cried out, indignant that he thought he could do this to her.

He gave her bottom a sharp swat and she yelped, stilling under the unexpected strike.

“That’s better. Have you ever been spanked, Serena?”

“As a child.”

“Good. But just because you grow up doesn’t mean you outgrow the need for discipline from time to time. If you were to be with me, you would understand my word is law. If you disobey, you must be disciplined.”

“But –- hey, what are you doing?” She squirmed as cool air hit the backs of her legs. Before she could take another breath, he’d yanked her gown up her body and down off her head. Her eyes stared at the pool of silk, now a puddle on the floor. Unfortunately, this was not how she’d expected to be naked with the man. She wiggled more, not giving up her attempts to get off his lap.

When he slid his hand over her bottom, however, her traitorous body went pliant over his legs. She couldn’t fight this. She liked the rough feel of his touch. She shifted, and her hip bumped his erection. His sharp intake of air told her he felt it, too. She smiled and tried to rub against him again, but when his hand struck her bottom, all thoughts of seduction fled.


“No, that was one. Say the numbers out loud, please.”

“No, I won’t –-“

He slammed his hand against her again.

“You will say the numbers, or I’ll continue to spank you until you do. You’re to listen to me now, Serena.”

Wednesday's Words to Inspire

Hello All,

At the end of the contest, one winner will receive a pdf copy of my story, Emmy's Wish AND a $10 gift certificate to the winners choice of amazon.com or barnesandnoble. Further details may be found on the first post for this hop, dated Dec. 14.

Today I'm giving you a very kinky piece from my latest story, Zarakion's Tip. Enjoy!

Santa’s Helpers: Zarakion’s Tip
by Ayla Ruse

Genres and Themes: Dark Fantasy, Hot Flash, Erotic Romance,
Elves, Magical Creatures

Buy from Changeling Press
Price: 2.99
Word Count: 24K

Demon delivery tips come in all shapes and sizes – just ask the elf
SPDS – Santa’s Package Delivery System – is in full swing this Christmas. This special co-op of the North Pole delivers packages to the Otherworlders, including demons. 

Taryn is a new delivery elf this year, and she draws the short straw – having to deliver packages to Hell. 

Zarakion, a Cha’horz Demon – the guardians of the dividing line between Earth and Hell – has to work the unstable drop point. He has to play at receiving; not his favorite job.  

When Taryn steps through the Gate, she’s intimidated at first by the huge demon, but Zarakion gives her a delivery tip that’ll have her scrambling to return to the drop point again and again.


A large shadow blocked out her light before the last word left her mouth. He stood over her, his legs spread at the end of the bike, his body hunched over hers while his large hands gripped the metal frame at the front of her motorcycle.

“Don’t break my bike,” she said fiercely, feeling his weight bearing down on the metal. His hot breath bathed her skin, and a second, silent thought slammed into her. She couldn’t turn back at this point. She murmured, “Oh, heck, what have I done?”

Her eyes quickly adjusted to the lower light, and she gasped, making out the strange part of him hovering above her. She should have known. This demon sported a monster-size erection. She’d never seen anything that huge. Well, maybe a baseball bat. A freaking huge baseball bat. But as far as male parts? 


He adjusted his stance and his cock bobbed above her. All she had to do was reach up, with both hands, and touch. Despite his size, her mouth watered and her pussy clenched.

“You want me?” he rasped. “Touch me. Show me.”

Finally. She reached up and wrapped her hands around his dick. The thick veins bulged and pulsed beneath her touch. Her hands slid over him, shifting the satin-soft skin over the harder flesh beneath.

“Like this?” she asked, her voice growing deep.

He shuddered. “Oh, yes. Keep it going, Snowflake.”



“My name is Taryn.”

“Taryn.” He seemed to let her name roll around his tongue. “Nice, but I like Snowflake. Your touch is so cold it burns.”

“You like that?”

“I do.”

She played with him, stretching out her arms to run her fingers along his entire length. “What’s your name, or do you have one?”

“I’m Zarakion,” he growled, thrusting slowly as she petted him.

She opened her mouth to give him a sassy hello, but her words were cut off when he flicked his tongue across her chest. Oh, yeah. She tipped her head to watch his forked tongue separate around a breast before it captured her nipple with a twist and a tug.

She moaned low and long, giving him encouragement to continue. When she pulled his cock closer and kissed the soft skin, he increased the play across her nipples. She arched her back, offering more, and he took greedily. The longer he licked her tits, the hotter she became. A burning sensation coated her body, like he’d rubbed cinnamon candy over her skin.

She tried to return his lavish attention by attending to his cock, but she couldn’t do much in her position, given how thick he was. “I want more,” she told him.

Thanks for reading. The linky list to follow the hop is below, and don't forget to comment for a chance to win!

A Purrrfect Alien Male

Hi all you blog hoppers out there. And if you just happened to stumble upon my blog - welcome! 

This post is part of the Purrfectly Giftastic Christmas Blog Hop from the Blog Hop Spot. Drea does a bang-up job organizing these hops. Make sure to drop her a line and say thanks!

And to see all the other great authors participating in this hop, simply click on the picture to the left or anywhere you see Purrrfectly highlighted. Have fun!

Now then, today I'd like to introduce you to an alien friend of mine. His name is Camden. He's from my story, Malathix Soul: Jagged. He's from the planet of Malathix and an unfortunate event caused him to be stranded on Earth. He's...wait. I'll let you read more about him and his issues in a minute. First, let me give you a visual. See, he's torn between the way he believes his relationship should continue, and the way his woman - Deidre - wants their relationship to develop. It's not only humans who experience problems.

Author: Ayla Ruse

Genres and Themes: Erotic Romance, Novella, Futuristic, Paranormal

Is it possible to repair two damaged hearts?

Camden Royst lives by a code of honesty and logic. When he bonds with his human, it’s without the emotional upheavals his crewmates suffer. But instead of making his life easier, everything falls to pieces. His female isn’t happy, and for the life of him he can’t understand why.

Deidre Parker always dreamed of being swept off her feet by a tall, handsome alien. When Camden walks into her life, she thinks he’s her dream come true. Except he won’t open up to her, and he picks and chooses what parts of his life she can see. Frustrated, she knows she can’t live with a half-sided arrangement. Even if her heart’s breaking without him.

Camden and Deidre finally decide to lay all their cards on the table, but when all is said and done, will what they reveal be enough to repair their damaged hearts, or will it leave them separate, with jagged ends?

The ensuing silence pricked at Deidre until she gave up the struggle she’d wrestled with since the moment she’d realized he was in her bed. She asked, “Why are you here?”

“I… missed you.”

She might have believed him if he hadn’t hesitated. As it was, she heard through his flat, almost questioning tone. He’d lied. If he’d truly missed her, he’d have come for her long before now.

His soul, fused within every part of her body, shifted inside her and defended him, even as her own thoughts hardened.

“Really, Camden?”

He didn’t answer.

She squeezed her eyes shut, pushed down the hurt, and embraced the simmering anger. “Now tell me the truth. Why are you here? What do you need?”

Another long silence passed before Camden got up and made his way to her bathroom. Deidre thumped her hands on the bed, once. She shouldn’t be surprised at this retreat. After all, wasn’t this what he’d done to her only six months before?

Going to the extra bathroom to shower, she argued with his soul. Even though his soul had no real voice, it sure as hell could do a number on her mental state, flooding her mind with images to vent its opinion.

Right now, his soul was kicking her ass for not falling all gooey-eyed over seeing Camden again.

“Listen, you,” Deidre scolded under her breath. “I already let him fuck me, okay? As long as I remember he only wants sex, and maybe whatever my job as an astronomer can bring him, I’ll be okay. No. Don’t go throwing those pictures to me of a lonely Camden. Everybody has moments they stare into space. Doesn’t mean he’s lonely. Besides, if I’m the answer to his loneliness, you’d think he’d tell me, wouldn’t you?”

When his soul replayed Camden’s recent declaration of missing her, she scoffed, loudly. “Yeah, you’d want to take his side.”

Camden scolded himself, pissed as hell he couldn’t seem to say anything right around Deidre. He’d been sincere when he’d told her he’d missed her. Missed her so much it hurt, but she didn’t believe him, and he was clueless as to how to make her see his sincerity.

He turned his face into the shower spray and let the water pour over his closed lids. He didn’t know what to do. She was harder than a Malathix rock to break, and for the second time in his life, he wondered if he wasn’t cut out to be in a relationship. Seeing his captain, Theradon, and his soul bearer, Laya, then Thorn with his soul bearer, Yvette, made Camden crave more. He envied those close relationships. How easily each couple moved together and how affectionate they were with one another. He’d even noticed it with other crewmembers who’d found their soul bearers.


He locked his arms against the wall in front of him, dipped his head and let the warm water beat on the back of his neck. He’d never wanted to be involved with anyone. Then he’d met Deidre. Looking back, he knew bonding with her had saved his life, but he would want her anyway, life or death notwithstanding.

With a short grumble, he pushed away from the tile, turned off the water and quickly toweled dry. Stalking into the bedroom, he wasn’t surprised to find it empty. His sensitive hearing picked up the second shower turning off, so he pulled on his jeans and tossed his towel into her hamper. Hands low on his hips, he paced the room, increasingly irritated at how much he wanted her, how easily she turned her back on him and how fucking hard it was to keep himself in control of his beast. They were bonded, damn it. That should have given him a greater measure of control. It used to, but not lately.

He heard her before he saw her. He’d decided he’d had enough of their avoidance games. He knew she wanted more from him, but he had nothing else he was willing to share. There was no choice. She’d have to take him as he was. It was as simple as that.
