Vuoi un bacio?

In Italian, bacio means to kiss. Editor Regina Perry has put together an alluring and enticing assortment of short stories in I Kissed a Girl: A Virgin Lesbian Anthology.

In my tale, "Two's Company," Trisha is no stranger with sharing her bed with another woman, but she's never ventured to one-on-one action. When her friend Joanna shows up one night, will the two move the relationship to the next level?

So tell me, would you like a kiss?

Vuoi un bacio?

Fun Dip

Want to take a Fun Dip? Clouds darken the sky, and it feels like rain. Nothing's happened though. There's nothing better than being in a steamy hot tub while it's chilly outside, and the rain is falling.

Until then, I'll settle for a Cherry-flavored Fun Dip. Shouldn't have eaten the entire Lik-M Stick though. Sometimes, there is too much of a good thing.

When Spanking Isn’t Spanking

It’s been too long since I’ve posted something new. When life happens, sometimes daily extras get pushed aside. Continuing on that mix of topics, let’s touch upon spanking. Not sure where your mind is, but we’re talking about discipline—no not *that* type of discipline—spanking.

We don’t spank our children. Growing up, I remember being hit once: for not eating my brussel sprouts. At five, I pushed them under the mashed potatoes, and even resorted to swallowing them whole like a humongous pill, until my mother had enough. Now as a mother, I have to think something else was going on with her. Seriously, to never spank and then break it out over food? It doesn’t compute. Anyhoo … the morale is: I remember it.

All other punishment came from being grounded and sent to my room. As an only child, being sent to my room wasn’t all that bad. I had my books, television, Barbie dolls, whatever distractions I needed.

A week ago we were at my in-law’s house, and Nicole, 6, started acting up. She’s gotten into this habit of baiting the younger one, waiting for her to get into trouble and then giving this evil smile. It totally gives her intentions away. I was in the kitchen cooking, and heard my husband tell Nicole to behave. About 10 minutes later she came to me and told me that she had been “spanked and made to sit on the bathroom floor.”

Instantly, I became livid. Spanked? Who had hit her? And, why?

As calmly as I possibly could, I invited my husband out to the garage to ask him what happened. Immediately, he called in Nicole.

“What does ‘spanking’ mean?” he asked her.

“It means being given a time-out, and having to sit inside,” she replied, quite innocently.

My husband and I smiled at each other, and I shook my head. My precious daughter has been so sheltered that she doesn’t even know what being spanked actually means. Can you imagine?

“The Wait:” When love lasts forever

Shawna and Josh’s relationship started as friends, blossomed into so much more, and just when she thought she had him, she lost it all. Read their story in “The Wait” by Louisa Bacio.

“Shawna wrapped her arms around Josh’s chest, feeling the difference in musculature. He’d filled out, in all the right places. Shawna thought of the irony: After years of fighting against his parents, conformity and “society,” Josh had grown up within the confines of the military. The top of her head barely reached the crevice beneath his chin. At 20, Shawna felt a growing confidence with men. At 21, with his military training, Josh exuded confidence.

“How’ve you been?” Josh asked, running the tips of his fingers across her jawline, his index finger slightly caressing the fullness of her lower lip.

Leaning into his body, Shawna took in the strength of it, and then tilted her head up and took his mouth with hers. A burst of desire swept through Shawna’s body, alighting her passion. She waited years for this moment, and how good it felt.” (excerpt from “The Wait”)

Now available in “Rekindled Fire,” through Ravenous Romance.

Rekindled Fire traces the stories of ten couples who lose each other, only to find their way back together once again. The love stories contain two unifying elements: profound love and erotic, passionate heat. Whether the story is contemporary or features magic, vampires or shape shifting; whether it involves spanking, bondage, or simply pure, unadulterated sex; or whether the couples have been torn apart for several months or one hundred years, one question remains the same: will these former lovers be able to rekindle the flame of love?

The Sex Talk

As a parent, I know that the time will come to talk to my two daughters about sex. As an erotic writer, with stashes of Playboy around the house, the discussion might become more pressing. Already, we’ve told our older daughter that it’s not “polite” to play with her privates sitting in front of the television or in front of other people. Last night, the situation raised a level.

Both girls love running around the house naked. From talking to other parents, I know this behavior isn’t an anomaly. Still, I don’t understand how I can be in long-sleeved pajamas and fuzzy socks and they’re running around butt-naked. Often, the older daughter, Nicole, will strip down first, and then the little one follows suit. Hubby asked Nicole to put some underwear and at least a pair of pants on. A few minutes later we were all laying on the pull-out sofa bed (love those Sundays with the family), and Nicole started giggling.

I looked over at her, and she held a great big pink feather in her hand.

“I’m laughing because I put the feather on my privates and it tickles.”

All righty. She had put on a skirt, but no undies.

I took the feather from her, and looked at my husband. “About time to have a talk with her?” he asked.

Yeah, sure, but who knew it would include feathers?

Sticker Shock & Awe

“Stickies. Stickies,” my 2-year-old daughter screamed.

Usually when I get dressed in the morning, I need something to distract her. Breakfast of a sliced “nana” and “Dora the Explorer” often does the trick. But, yesterday, only “stickies” would do.

After handing her a sparkly and sticky sheet of Dora and friends, I headed to the back to throw on some clothes. I hadn’t even finished picking out my jeans and shirt when I heard some major giggles floating on back. As a parent, there are some things for concern. One is when the children get quiet. The other is when they laugh while alone (well, or with a pet).

The little one sat on our red couch, panties stripped off and stickers afoot. She strategically stuck Isa the green lizard right at the top of her “whooo-hoo.” A Dora sticker graced the inside of her thigh, and the sheet showed one more missing.

Where is it? I thought. She was going to spend the day with my mom-in-law (yes, so soon after that wonderful Saturday night alone, lucky me!). Imagine if I didn’t find Ms. Isa’s hiding place. There, on her calf was the last “stickie.”

Only two. I can’t help but wonder what adornments will be in her future ...

Best Sex Scene

Something about that title grabbed my interest. So, I had to read the EW article, of course. Entertainment Weekly happens to be one of my ultimate guilty pleasures. Not only do I relish watching American Idol, but the next day, I just gotta read the morning after reviews on EW.

After checking the DVR, I found out that Lifetime was going to be re-showing the Nora Roberts' adapted flick "High Noon" again this evening. I'll definitely let you know if it rates a "best" sex scene label.

Want more? Here's a link to the story:

Date Night

So let's dish about date-night. With hubby's birthday a week away, we were able to secure a sitter this evening (all right, that means the in-laws). With a full night alone, what do we do? How about a nice dinner, shower and nap beforehand, of course, and maybe a movie. Then again, with a home empty and waiting, why waste time with a flick?

Late-Night Love

Ever enjoy a late-night rendezvous with a good book? Nothing like a good read to keep you up late at night. This week, I sucked in two Blaze novels by Leslie Kelly: “Slow Hands” and its companion “Heated Rush.” Ms. Kelly knows how to pour on the steam in some delicious sex scenes. Plus, there are some memorable characters. Ready to spend some time turning the pages while you’re between the sheets? Check them out.

Do you believe in love?

The world contains all different types of love, and I'm not talking about the love for a child, or a friend here. It's romantic love that's on the board.

There's that sweet first-love crush. Remember what it was like to first hold hands with someone, say around junior high school? The morning would be spent planning how you would share lunch together.

Then comes high school love. Hormones rushing. All that uncertainty. And, many people keep and cherish that first "real" love. Others find their special someone later in life.

Do we all get just one love? We can, but I don't it's exclusive. If for some reason one love does not work out, I don't think that's it. It's over. There's no more chances. Instead, we possess the ability to love again. A subject that's bound to come up again ...

After being married for almost 10 years to a six feet, four inch-tall "hero" of my own, I feel extremely fortunate. And yes, I believe in love.
