The Very Bossy Boys Next Door now LIVE

The Very Bossy Boys Next Door is now live and available at leading vendors.

It’s all the rage, the told her. Women all over the world are selling their virginities to outrageously rich men for obscene amounts of money that would keep them cushioned in the arm of luxury for the rest of their lives.

For Amber Miller it’s the perfect solution to all her problems. One night at a ritzy hotel with a nice smelling billionaire - because surely all billionaires must smell nice, and she’ll be able to clear her deceased parents’ inherited debt and keep the house her mother loved so much.

What could go wrong?

The return of the three very bossy boys who live next door!

They promised her dad they would look out for her when she was a little girl, and now all grown-up the promise still stands and that makes her completely off limits.

But when they discover the answer to her financial woes involves some rich schmuck touching her all bets are off.

Publisher Warning: The Very Bossy Boys Next Door contain scenes of an explicit nature, spankings and anal punishments and all that is wrapped up in a very happy ever after.

NSFW Excerpt:

“Your safety is something we take very seriously,” Dex said softy, facing her now but with a determination that set his perfectly sculpted jaw into an appealing square as he rounded her. Her gaze followed his tall form as he strolled toward the bay window.

Something bad was about to happen to her, and she didn’t have enough experience to give herself even one small, tiny hint.


“You have to be punished for this, Princess,” Owen said as he dropped down to his haunches in front of her. He gently tucked her long hair behind her ear. “You have to accept that there isn’t a problem you have that we can’t solve. But more than that, you have to learn to come to us with any problems you have. It’s our job. You should have called that number.”

“I’m not your job,” she said shakily. She didn’t want to be a task they had to take care of because they made a promise to her dad. “Please, just let me go.” Streaks of nervousness made her tummy turn upside down as her gaze widened in fear when she watched Dex easily unscrew the curtain holdback knob, which was really just a smooth, highly varnished dome with a stem. What on earth…

“Wait. What… What are you going to do with that? Untie me right now. Owen, please, let me go. Please,” she begged frantically, her gaze wavering from Owen to Dex to Matthew, who stood in front of her as well, his enigmatic gaze giving nothing away, and she wasn’t sure if she imagined the tightening of his jaw as she begged to be released.

In fact, while the other two men gave nothing away either, she saw the same kind of tension in them. A split-second shadow of darkness that swept over their eyes before it disappeared, and she was sure she was losing her mind.

“Dex?” she cried frantically when he left the room with the curtain holdback in his hand. For the life of her she couldn’t imagine what they intended to do with it and her.

“Please. I don’t want to be here.” But even in her inexperience, she couldn’t ignore the feverish glint of her skin, the way her nerves pulled and pushed and made her womb contract and her pussy ache for something that had no name.

“You will be released, but only when we’re a hundred percent certain you’ll never pull a stunt like this again.”

“Do you realize that Paloma's man could have hurt you just enough to scare you into complying? Do you understand that he could have put his fucking hands on you, and we would not have been there to break them for him?” Matthew said softly, but his anger, like his two brothers, lingered in every word they said to her.

“You could have prevented that if you called that number the first time Paloma asked for the money because no mobster is ever going to say it’s okay. You should have known that, Amber.”

“I don’t need you sorting out my problems for me. Don’t you get it? I don’t want to have anything to do with you three. I want to be released. Now.”

She whimpered when Dex returned to the living room. Her heart somersaulted as he held the curtain ornament in a towel in his hand as he dried it off. Had he washed it? Why did he have to wash it?

They were entirely too serious, and they weren’t going to let her go. Not until she learned her lesson.

She swallowed awkwardly as they moved in behind her again.

Oh God, help her. She turned her head once more to the back, then whipped it around so fast she thought she made herself see triple.

Their Forever - A dark angst-filled ménage romance

I'm so thrilled to announce my first book for 2021 - THEIR FOREVER is now live and available everywhere!

A dark ménage romance. 

You have my permission to touch my wife… 

Sophisticated mafia billionaire, Liam Stone knew the moment he saw the innocent Olivia he had to own her. She didn't love him. How could she? In her eyes she was sold from one cruel tyrant to another. She was grateful to him and she obeyed him because he demanded it but she couldn't love him, and he was just too ruthless to ever let her go. 

But when he introduces her to their new chauffeur, and he notices the subtle catch in her breath, Kade Tremayne, a man as dangerous as Liam, becomes the only man he'd ever trust enough to share his wife. 

Publisher warning: This book contains explicit scenes including medical play. Please don't purchase if you are sensitive to such material.


Liam took her clit and Kade slid his fingers into her fresh wetness. He plunged deep and hard, expecting her to want to wriggle away from under his touch no matter how wet she was for them both.

She threw her head back on Liam’s shoulder, exposing her throat for him. He sank his teeth into her flesh, hard, mindlessly trying to pin her between them before she tried to escape, before he felt her fucking guilt poison him.

He scissored his fingers inside with savage force, uncaring that she wanted to beg to be released from his touch.

Sandwiched between them, a hot quivering sobbing mess, still spasming from her turbulent orgasm, she couldn’t have been lovelier.

Her hot little body slid between him and Liam. He was a man possessed in making her want him without her conscience trying to relegate him to the ends of the earth. He drove into her roughly, the sound of wetness against his hammering fingers echoing around them. He wanted her to come with the same vicious, splendid need he had to do the same inside her body.


He noticed when Liam had stopped touching her completely, his hands now wrapped around her arms as he held her for Kade. As if Liam knew Kade needed to do this on his own.

He dropped his head to her forehead, but he couldn’t stop his desperate ministrations, not when she had wet his whole hand. It wasn’t her fault, and he had no idea what the fuck he was doing, falling for his best friend’s wife, despite Liam’s idea that she was meant for both of them.

He had breached the wall where he didn’t care if she hated him as long as he could touch her, kiss her, fuck her with Liam filling her up on the other side.

If he didn’t stop now, at that precise point, there was no going back.

He didn’t want to go back.

She clutched his fingers, hugging him to her satiny flesh like she had his cock between her pussy lips even though trepidation, shame, and remorse fractured the hazy shadows of her beautiful face.


And still, he couldn't stop.

He made her come with a violence that seethed from his own soul. He couldn’t do what she wanted. He couldn’t leave. Not now.

He released her then flexed his hand, her silky wetness soothing over his calloused hand.

She looked at him, horrified now that no matter how hard she had fought the battle not to come, her body had betrayed her. Her mortification and never-ending supply of guilt continued to shatter him, but he was too far gone now.

He could live with that contempt, if it meant touching her, hearing her breathe, feeling her orgasm between his and Liam’s bodies.

Without another thought, Kade scooped her up and carried her to the chaise. Liam led the way and lay on his back, his head rested on the backrest of the lounge chair as Kade placed her to straddle him.

“Liam,” she said, her voice tear-stained and filled with anguish and fear.

“We’re right here, sweetheart,” Liam assured her. She sobbed as Liam sucked her sweet nipples while Kade squirted copious amounts of lube into her ass, deepened his fingers inside her with every stroke. “This is where you belong. Right here between us,” Liam said.

She shook her head and Kade stalled for a moment. He rubbed his one hand down his face. His mind flooded with muddled thoughts and then emptied itself of every single one, except her. Nothing came close to making her a part of him. Of owning half of her.

Double Release! Stevie MacFarlane and Markie Morelli

The always lovely Stevie MacFarlane also writing as Markie Morelli are here today with two absolutely must read new releases! First up, Stevie MacFarlane with The Rancher and Carrie Ann, Come Sundown Book 1.


Carrie Ann Meadows is a dreamer, a bit of a schemer, and the prettiest girl in Centerville. If she’d get her nose out of those damn dime novels now and then, she might realize that standing right in front of her is a flesh and blood man willing to do his best to turn her highly unlikely romantic notions into reality. 

It's not until Micah MacPherson stealthy purchases one of those books that he realizes he’s a far cry from the kind of man his Carrie Ann is dreaming about. He’s a rancher who has little time for courting a woman as it is. He doesn’t own fancy cravats, he can’t quote poetry, and he sure as hell isn’t on some social registry for highfalutin fops and dandies. 

Micah loves Carrie Ann and he’s waited for her to grow up, but his patience is nearly at its end. She’s either going to marry him, or he’ll be pleased to give her what she so richly deserves and set his sights elsewhere. Surely somewhere there’s a woman who would appreciate a hard-working and devoted rancher with his eye on marriage.

Tossing out the rest of his coffee he went upstairs. He picked up her clothes and straightened the table where she’d written last night, his eyes skimming the words of her dime novel.

Hmm, she was remarkably explicit in describing there first time as man and wife.

“Mitchell touched her softly, his rough hands stroking her pale skin in the moonlight. Cynthia bit her lip and held her breath waiting for the pain she’d been told was coming. Instead she gasped in wonder at the pleasure stealing through her body.

He made small, satisfied noises. She tensed for a few moments until he whispered of her loveliness and how fortunate he felt to have made her his wife. His words soothed her. She felt valued, treasured. Surely, he would not hurt one so long sought after. She relaxed in his strong arms, trusting him to know what to do, trusting him to make the sweet ache that threatened to consume her go away.”

Straightening, Micah set the papers back down, brushing his damp hands on his jeans. He sure as hell hoped he was Mitchell and she was Cynthia!


And now Markie Morelli's new book Finn’s Plan: Book One, Find Her


“You can’t buy me, Finn,” she replied. “Money doesn’t mean that much to me. I’ll admit I’m attracted to you, but don’t try to ‘make me’ do anything. I may be small and easy to get along with, but I can be feisty as well. And stubborn,” she added, thoughtfully. 
“I’m counting on that,” he answered cryptically. 

Billionaire Finley Tremont is a man of action and he has plans, big plans for his new bride, Trisha. He wants more than a traditional marriage, much more. Putting on the brakes will be difficult for him, but that’s exactly what he needs to do. Each step must by measured, designed to make her crave the same things he does. He adores her, aches for her, and now that she’s agreed to become his wife, Finn intends to take Trisha into a world he’s only dreamed about. 
As a brilliant CEO, Finn is used to overcoming obstacles to get what he wants, and he wants to be her husband and daddy. Let her be naughty and rebellious if she wants to; he hungers for the challenge and a chance to prove that he is more than master enough. In the end, he's going to win her undying love. 

Book Links: 



“Excuse me?”

“I said I don’t have pretty panties. At least not on me. I do own one pair, but I save them for special occasions and I didn’t think a ‘casual’ date was worth wearing them for. They are special, after all,” she stated a bit regally.

“I’m afraid I don’t understand,” he replied.

“Of course you don’t,” she said with a slightly intoxicated sneer. “Your underwear probably cost a thousand dollars a pair, mine are bargain basement, except for the special pair of panties of course,” she explained as though she were talking to an idiot.

“So, it wasn’t the thought of me spanking you or the possibility of my team seeing you getting spanked that bothered you,” he said in an incredulous voice. “It was that they might see your, shall we say, less than stunning panties?”

“Well, sort of, yes,” she admitted, waving her hand at him dismissively. “A girl likes to look pretty, even for something like that. Not that I believed you would do it, but still, you might have and it bothered me you would see them. Then later, when I realized it might not only be you, but nameless, countless other men, well, that is just not something I would allow.”

Finn smiled, a wicked and in her mind slightly evil smile and rose slowly from the couch.

“And you think you could have prevented it?” he asked, approaching her with measured steps.

Trish rushed across the room, stumbling once, and ended up behind the bar where she at least had something substantial between her and the man with a determined gleam in his eye. She picked up the bottle of wine.

“Put that down,” he ordered sharply.

Glaring at him for a moment, she then stuck out her tongue. It was on.

NEW RELEASE! Claiming his Brat by Kessily Lewel

The very special Kessily Lewel has a sizzling new book out today! 

CLAIMING HIS BRAT is the first in the Daddy Takes The Reins series and it's an absolute must read with an absolutely gorgeous cover.


They’ve been down this road before, but this time she knows exactly what she needs from her rough cowboy lover.

A rekindled romance. A second chance at love. The Daddy she needs. 
When family tragedy brings Charlie back home to the ranch, she ends up face to face with the man she walked out on years before. Sam is just as hot and bossy as ever, but Charlie knows she made the right choice all those years ago and she's determined to stay away. 

But when her father’s will throws the two of them together, it quickly becomes clear that their explosive chemistry can't be ignored. 

Now he’s in charge whether she likes it or not, and it’s bringing back all those memories of what they had before. But if things are going to work it has to be different this time. She knows what she needs. She needs him to be her Daddy. The only question is… can he handle her? 

Buy Link: Amazon 

EXCERPT  (R-rated) 

“Don’t take that tone with me Charlie girl, unless you want to go over my knee!” Sam snapped back.

Her mouth dropped open, but she couldn’t ignore the surge of arousal that rocketed through her, soaking her panties and making her nipples harden into points. “I…you…you can’t do that!” she blurted, taking several steps back as she said it, just in case he was planning to do exactly what he’d threatened.

He got to his feet and moved around the desk like he was stalking her. Somehow, he got between her and the door, and then he was backing her against the wall and bracing his hands on either side of her to trap her right where she was. “You want to bet on that, kid? I’ll do it right here. Pants down and everything, imagine someone walking in and seeing you like that,” he said in a low threatening growl.

Her eyes widened and her breath caught in her throat. A small pulsing had begun, centered low in her body and for a second, she was tempted to say, ‘yes please!’ but she couldn’t do that. “I didn’t give you permission to discipline me, Sam.” She hadn’t meant it to sound so cold, but the ice she was using to keep her emotions in check crept into her voice.

He stared at her and then slowly dropped his arms and took a step back. A shuttered look came over his face and all the passion vanished leaving a neutral expression she couldn’t decipher. He gestured towards the door. “Go on then. You know I’m not going to force anything on you. You want to be a brat and then say no, that’s on you. I’ve got work to do.”


And you don't want to miss this too!

About Kessily 

Kessily Lewel, and her darker side Sadie Marks, are two halves of the same author. Between those two pen names, she has a total of nine published books now. All of them fall under the category of power-exchange romance. 

Kessily’s books tend more towards sexy romance with a side of domestic discipline, while Sadie has been sticking to sci-fi, with her race of Dominant aliens who are looking for a few good humans to call their own. 

She has been in love with fantasy, sci-fi and horror since she was a child. She grew up reading Stephen King, Asimov, Robert Heinlein, and others, so it was only natural that one day she’d write her own worlds—though hers do seem to have a lot more sex and BDSM in them.

“What do you think you’re doing?” a man said from behind her. His voice was as deep as thunder, authoritative, and vaguely familiar. 

Pepper smoothed her lavender midi-dress and tucked a loose strand of hair under her modesty cap before turning to face him. Her hands went cold when she saw who had spoken.

Looking down at her from a lofty height stood a stately man, a blue-skinned Devmaerean. He was dressed in the gray uniform and shiny black boots worn by all male members of the country’s ruling Tribunal. But the red cuffs on his jacket and the scarlet scarf at his neck were worn by only one person: the country’s leader.

Commander Quinn Garrick’s face was impassive, and his amethyst eyes glittered with something like amusement. “Are you planning a burglary?”

His rich voice made Pepper’s insides tighten, but not from fear. The hair on her arms stood on end. Her toes curled, responding to his aura of power and authority. She couldn’t take her eyes off him.

Her face burned with embarrassment at her body’s primal response to him. Wasn’t she the woman who could say no? And usually did say no. Wasn’t she the one who was rarely tempted by desires of the flesh?

Until now.

Her breath came fast and shallow as the axis of her world shifted.

“Uh. No, sir.” She gulped.

She glanced around for the Tribunal Guards who should have been close. Curiously there were none nearby. Neither was there was a film crew on hand, recording their encounter. It was just the two of them standing in front of Lily’s place.

Pepper swallowed as icy fear edged out her initial sensation of lust. The commander was known to be a rigid enforcer of the rules that made their country safe and stable. And he’d just caught her peeking into a house that wasn’t hers.

Dread fluttered in her chest. As she broke eye contact with him, she noticed the broadness of his shoulders. A cinched belt emphasized the trimness of his waist. She glimpsed the healthy bulge at his groin. In spite of herself, her fingers twitched at the thought of touching that beautiful muscle, teasing it to its magnificent fullness. His strong thighs flexed under his tailored trousers.

“Step out of the flowerbed, please.” An order disguised as a polite request.

Pepper’s heart tried to hammer its way out of her ribcage as she moved onto the lawn.

“Please look at me when I’m talking to you. What do you think happens to burglars?”

She raised her eyes back to his and shrugged.

He folded his arms, nodding at her to speak.

“Detention?” Her voice squeaked, betraying a mix of fear and wonder.

“At the very least. Women offenders often get the switch.” The corners of his mouth twitched in a small smile.

Flames of embarrassment burned up Pepper’s neck as she imagined this man baring her bottom to stripe it with willow branches. Now another part of her body was swelling and clenching. As his eyes bored into her, she dropped her head to study her feet. The toe of her right boot was muddy from the garden. She rubbed it against her left ankle.

“What do you have to say for yourself?” Before she could answer, he said, “Let’s start with our names. I’m Quinn Garrick, Commander of Elsinania.”

Everyone with working eyes and ears knows who you are. Pepper bit back the sarcastic reply. The man appeared hourly on the viewing screens that ran nonstop in all the public buildings in every street in the entire country. “I’m Piera Elin Thornback, massage therapist, citizen grade four. People call me Pepper.”

He nodded again, indicating he expected more of an explanation. She wondered if he would demand to read the CitizenBand on her left wrist. The fine gold and silver bracelet carried her name, address, education, occupation, blood type, along with the day of her last cycle and the fact that the contraceptive option had been activated.

“It’s my sister, Lily. I can’t wake her.” She jutted her chin toward the window as her voice drifted off. Somehow her explanation sounded flimsy when spoken out loud.

“Let me have a look.” He touched her lower back as he stepped around her. As quickly as he removed his hand, she wanted it back on her again.

Pay attention. She noted the way he didn’t have to trample the garden to get close like she did. He was tall enough to see in the window from three feet back.

As he turned, she saw that his thick blue hair was tied back with a leather thong at the base of his neck. The length of it took her breath away; it was almost as long as hers.

The Handbook for Proper Conduct, which set out the rules every person in Elsinania was supposed to live by, decreed that men’s hair shouldn’t reach past their shirt collars. Quinn’s would fall to his elbows when it was untied. Members of the Tribunal made rules; they obviously didn’t follow them.

“There’s no one in there,” he declared, regarding her with a look of gentle concern.

Suddenly the autumn sun felt unbearably hot. A bead of sweat ran down the back of her neck. She longed to tear off her modesty cap, loosen her long heavy hair, and let her scalp breathe.

Libby Campbell in her own words: 

My romance novels feature strong, self-reliant women and the powerful men who love them. Romantic by nature, I write the stories I want to read: those that feature a spicy power exchange and deliver a sting in the tale. 

Canadian by birth, I also lived in Australia for a couple of decades. While living there I overcame my aversion to saucer-sized spiders and, as a condition of marriage to my Aussie Prince Charming, I swore a lifelong allegiance to the Melbourne Football Club. 

Then family called and my husband and I packed up and moved. We now live on a rocky island on Canada’s West Coast, close to beaches that once were frequented by smugglers and rumrunners. 

My passions are reading and writing. I adore all animals and love hiking, beachcombing, and an occasional night of dancing.

Question and answers with Libby Campbell 

What was your inspiration for this book? 

I planned the entire series about a year ago and sketched out the different continents then. So At that time, I envisioned Elsinania’s culture as being well regulated and harmonious on the surface but troubled when examined closer.
Of course the pandemic in the series is much milder than anything we are seeing here now but at first the coincidence unnerved me a lot.
In this book, it was great fun setting the daughter of a dissident on a collision course with the authoritarian commander. 

Why fantasy? 

Sometimes I find planet earth a bit of a discouraging place. I wanted to create an escape, another world, with problems that are resolved and happy ever after moments. 

I made that decision long before the bumping and bruising ride that arrived with the COVID19 virus. Now more than ever we need an escape. At least I do. 

Colored socks? 

That little detail was borrowed from a certain religious sect here in Canada. One of my friends grew up on a farm next to their communal property. The girls were only allowed bright colored socks until they were married. He told me that the girl who wore most shocking, brightest socks always flirted with him. Pepper isn’t that boy-crazy but she liked her bright socks as a way of personal expression. 

What is the best part of writing? 

Getting a new idea and running with it. Book 3 in this series, Bound To The Sheriff, is almost complete. It’s the first book I’ve ever written with no specific plotting. 
I got one image of the opening scene and built the rest of it from there.
The process has been like riding a bike downhill really fast, wondering if I’m doing to crash or just have a breathtaking joy ride. So far it’s mostly been a joy ride.
Of course, the very best part of writing is hearing from readers who’ve enjoyed my books. Those kind comments are like Christmas, birthday, and the end of social distancing all in one package! 

What is the hardest part of writing? 

Being attacked by trolls who hide behind avatars. 

Not someone who doesn’t like a book, gives a negative review, and never reads my work again. That’s life. 

I’m talking about reviewers who continue to read the same genre and same authors over and over, only to leave caustic and/or outraged reviews, as if every new variation on the theme is something unexpected and dreadful to them. They are either slow learners, self-appointed guardians of what the public should be allowed to read, or people with empty lives and dark hearts. 

One good thing the trolls show us: they prove the art is doing its job. It is provoking a passionate response.

Taken By The Renegade by Sadie Marks

Sadie Marks is visiting today with her newest, hottest release, TAKEN BY THE RENEGADE - Book 2 in Rise of the Sadecs!

They are Masters at balancing pleasure with pain and the only thing they won't give her is freedom.


Samantha is a masochist with no interest in the trappings of romance or submission, until she meets the sexy new Dominant in town and falls for him hard. But he’s not who she thought he was. He’s not even human. 

Trev is a renegade member of the sadistic Sadec race. and by the time she learns it, she’s on his spaceship far from home. When she’s confiscated by his people as forbidden contraband, Sam finds herself reborn into her new life as Silla. She consents to fill her role as Pain Receiver and reluctantly learns to submit to their whims.

But Trev is never far from her mind, and when she’s given the chance to get back to her renegade Sadec Dom, she realizes it’s worth risking everything to be with him.

Taken by a Renegade is a stand-alone sequel to Surrendering to Her General where Silla first appeared as a minor character. Now we’ll see her backstory and learn how she ended up at the mercy of the Sadecs as she struggles to get back to the man she loves. 

Publisher's Note: This book contains lots of steamy scenes well as graphic BDSM and power exchange, so please avoid it if you find those things upsetting.


It had been a shock, the first time Nikon grabbed her without a word, tossed her over his lap and began to spank her like he was trying to beat a swarm of gnats off her ass. It was hard, fast, and left her gaping in surprise when she was suddenly righted and set back on her feet. Era'D took one look at her face, and his amusement rang through their quarters.

She couldn't tell if he was more amused by his brother's loss of composure or by her shock, but he was still laughing when Nikon growled, "Behave!" in her ear and stalked out the door to go cool off on the fighting sands.

Perversely, she found that kind of sudden angry punishment to be just about the hottest thing she'd ever experienced. Era'D noticed she was going out of her way to get in trouble with his brother, and he found it hilarious. The fact that she knew better than to try it with him made it all the more amusing, but she'd tested the waters there and found his reaction to outright disobedience and attitude to be a lot different—and much less pleasant. 



Sadie Marks has been in love with Science-Fiction and horror since she was a little girl and when given the opportunity to mix power-exchange romance with sadistic aliens there was no way she was going to turn it down. She is continuing to work on the Rise of the Sadecs series and is enjoying her work on the third book. 

Her wide and varied experiences lend a note of realism to the D/s relationships she portrays in her books. 

(Sadie Marks is the darker half of Author Kessily Lewel) 

Sadie doesn’t have her own website, but she does share one with Kessily Lewel which covers a mixture of topics like writing, safely exploring BDSM relationships, and the occasional kinky short story. You can find it at:
