Subterfudge - Whip It Up Anthology @NormandieA

Please Welcome Back Normandie Alleman... 

Thanks in large part to the Food Network, cooking shows, and celebrity chefs, upscale cuisine has become accessible to everyone. These days you don’t have to dine at expensive restaurants every night to know how to “expand your palette.”

Totally Bound’s new anthology, “Whip It Up” includes six sexy BDSM stories about amorous antics in the kitchen, each one guaranteed to spice up your romantic fantasies. From cakes and canes to puddings and paddles, this hot read is sure to satisfy readers with even the most discriminating tastes.

Here’s the blurb for “Subterfudge” – my story in the “Whip It Up Anthology”: 
When Roger asks his live-in sub Ashley to learn to cook she eagerly agrees, assuming it’s going to be a breeze. After all, she’s a bright, accomplished woman with a successful career—how hard can it be to prepare some food?

Once she’s up to her ears in cocoa and flour, Ashley realises cooking is more complicated than it looks. Finding ways to shortcut the process, Ashley dupes Roger into believing she’s a diva in the kitchen. But when he finds out she’s not the chef of his dreams, will he serve up a punishment fit for a saucy sub or will their relationship go up in flames?

Reader Advisory: This book contains anal sex, rimming, food play.


Something soft and fluffy drifted up the inside of one of her legs, barely passing over her crotch before it glided down her other leg. It could have been a feather…a frilly, lush sensation. Yes, please.

“I know how much you like being tied up…do you think I need to do that to you tonight?”

“Yes, Sir.” Her voice quivered with need.

“Good thing I brought these, then.” He clutched her wrists and bound her with the familiar cloth restraints that he used with her so frequently. Her hands were confined above her head, their movement restricted to a few inches in each direction.

“Spread your legs for me.”

Ashley obeyed. The air in the room was chilly. A sense of vulnerability came over her. It reminded her of that feeling when you’re a patient in a cold, sterile hospital room.

Then she felt his mouth on her. She lurched and gasped for air when he buried his face in her mound. Tongue licking, nose nudging, teeth nipping, his hot breath coated her with his own lust. He had her quaking in moments.

She was on the verge of climax when he stopped.

Bastard! He’s teasing me. She was breathless, at the peak of arousal. He loves seeing me like a bitch in heat.

“I’m going to play with you with some unusual toys. I want you to try and guess what they are. I will help you along, but you give your best guess. Ready?”

“Yes, Sir.” She nodded.

Thwack! She felt something on the inside of her leg. What is that?

“Keep your legs spread.” His voice issued a warning.

“Yes, Sir. Sorry, Sir.”

More swats from the unknown implement. That feels familiar. What is it? When have I felt it before?

Then a swat to her pussy woke her up. The sting wasn’t terrible, but it definitely brought the blood to the surface and made her cry out.

“What am I smacking you with, little sub?”

“I’m not sure…”

Guest Willa Edwards Author of Dirty Work

Could Mr. Wrong really be Mr. Oh-So-Right?

We all like different types of men. Some women like bald men, running their fingers of a smooth round scalp, while others crave thick curly hair all over their men, head, chest, back. Some women like tall and thin men, while others like stocky men covered with muscles. Every women has a different idea of who her Mr. Right is and what traits he might possess, whether its a man who works with his hands, or a man whos better with equations than car motors. Every woman has a different idea of what Mr. Right should look like, and that was the whole basis of my Naughty Holiday List series.

One night, five women, Callie, Mallory, Krista, Amy and Giselle, all write down what they want in a man. They create lists of everything they want in their Mr. Right, very different lists, detailing different needs, and wants. And throughout the course of their stories theyve all found those men.

Put what if the men you want are not the men you think you should want? Thats the issue that Giselle has to deal with in Dirty Work. She wants Garrett. Hes a working man, with oil under his fingernails and grease on his face. But after having several relationships with these kind of men, Giselle thinks she should move on and start dating a different kind of men. Men who spend more time sitting at a computer and working with numbers than car engine parts.

But can you deny who youre attracted to? Can you really change the type of man that is your Mr. Right? And will Garrett give Giselle that chance? To find out, youll have to read Dirty Work now available with Siren Publishing.


As her friend's wedding approaches, Giselle Rossini feels more discouraged than ever. She's not where she wanted to be in life. She loves her job, but longs for something else to fill her days.

When she walks into her ex-sweetheart Garrett at her school, declaring he's the new auto shop teacher and he wants her back, Giselle finds her last refuge quickly vanishing. Years ago she loved Garrett, but all he did was break her heart and prove to her men are all the same.

Garrett Montgomery never stopped loving Giselle. And now he's back, determined to work his way into her life. He's not surprised Giselle isn't ready to welcome him back into her arms, but he'll do anything to earn her trust again. Garrett's never been afraid of a little hard work, especially when it includes some dirty talking and getting naughty in the backseat of a car.

But can he break through Giselle's perfect impregnable shell and into her heart, or will the labor be too much for him to withstand?

Giselle stared down at the list. The homemade paper was rough in her hands. The smell of pine and rose petals wafted from the page. The bright holiday ornaments and snowflakes stared up at her mockingly.

Ever since shed created the list with her friends nine months ago the items cataloged on the holiday paper taunted her. It had seemed like such a fun idea, writing lists of the qualities your dream man would possess, with the hope that man would then find his way to your life. All her friends had been successful with it. One by one theyd all fallen under the spell. Each finding their own version of happiness. All of them, except her.

She dropped the list to her desk, right beside the invitation for Callie and Erics wedding, releasing a deep sigh. Only another day until the big event and no matter how hard she tried she couldnt get excited about it. At least not as excited as she should be. She was the party planner, the event organizer. She should be in her element, but it felt forced, like she was going through the motions.

All her friends had found happiness with someone they loved. She should be happy for them. And she was. But it didnt stop the pang in her heart that throbbed with her own loneliness. Or the quiet voice in the back of her head that wondered if there was something wrong with her, something unlovable. 

Shed never thought shed be the one whose life revolved around work. She thought shed be married by now, maybe have a few kids. But life hadnt worked out that way. Instead, she was at the school three days before the new year began, categorizing her supplies, and determining what she needed to order before the curriculum began. At least her students benefited. Most of them could out cook Rachel Ray with all shed taught them.

How had she become this person? She was pretty sure she hadnt always been this focused on work. It certainly wasnt who she wanted to be, but she had no clue how to change it.

Giselle shoved the last of the flour, sugar, salt and baking soda back into the cabinet and noted the remaining ingredients she needed for the blueberry muffins she always made the first day of class with her Home Ec students, before grabbing her purse and heading toward the door. Shed promised to meet Callie early to finish decorating the pavilion in the park where she was to be married. Tonight was the rehearsal dinner and Giselle had promised to make sure the event went off without a hitch so Callie could enjoy herself. 

Not that she had a choice. No one else would be able to help Callie as well as she could. She couldnt stand the idea of having to spend all day tomorrow looking at someone elses lopsided flower arrangements or mismatched table linens. She shuddered at the thought of her best friend drinking out of plastic champagne glasses.

The sound of her heels clicking across the floor echoed through the empty halls. The rest of the teachers were off enjoying what remained of their summer vacation before the horde of hyper kids, helicopter parents and school board demands usurped all their time. Every teacher with a life, that is.

Giselle turned the corner, and the clang of metal coming from the auto shop lab piqued her interest. She smiled. She wasnt the only one without a life.

They must have hired the new teacher. After Mr. Miller retired, James, one of her best friends husbands and the middle school vice principal, had revealed theyd decided to go a different way with the position. He mentioned hiring someone with less teaching experience and more real life experience. Giselle assumed that meant someone willing to work for less. Given how their school budget continued to dwindle, she didnt blame him.

Curiosity getting the best of her, she snuck a peek toward the shop. The door hung wide open, giving her a good view of the cluttered room.

The new teacher was bent over, picking up a tool beside the broken down Ford Taurus they used for the kids to practice on. Her stomach flip flopped and her temperature rose as she stared at the delicious sight of the new shop teacher before her. Shed have to compliment James on the new hire. Hed made a very nice choice.

Giselle leaned back against the door jamb to admire the picture before her. She didnt often ogle men, she just wasnt that type of girl, but the sight before her was too good to ignore. His worn jeans cupped a very nice, well-formed ass. His thick masculine body would have all the female teachers interested in learning how to change their own oil.

Shed always loved manly guys, men who worked with their hands. It had gotten her into trouble more times than she could recall. Shed tried to be attracted to a man who spent more time behind a computer screen and reading books than he spent with grease beneath his fingernails, but so far it hadnt worked. Yet another reason she was here today, instead of curled in bed with someone special.

He stood and Giselle smiled, walking further into the room. Now seemed as good a time as any to introduce herself to her new coworker. Maybe shed offer to show him around the school, introduce him to all the other teachers. Her mood lightened and a small smile leapt to her face. Didnt most people meet their significant other at work? Maybe the universe was finally working for her. Maybe this was her chance to meet her future husband. The next wedding they attended could be hers.

His back came into view, a dark red T-shirt spread across his broad shoulders. His blond hair spiked around his head, perfect for running her fingers through. She hoped he had brown eyes. Shed always been a sucker for a pair of dark eyes.

He turned around and Giselle gasped, all the air leaving her lungs in one large gust. She reached her hand out, grabbing hold of the doorframe to keep upright. The edges of her vision darkened.
“Hi, Dixie.” He grinned at her. His big foolish smirk knotted her insides, the drawl from his Georgia roots highlighting the nickname he’d given her over eight years ago, on their first date. “Its great to see you again.”

#MySexySaturday You Found Me #historical #romance


My Sexy Saturday ~ The rules are simple  
Post 7 paragraphs or 7 sentences or 7 words from a WIP or published work

With a little prompt from our wonderful MSS host Lynn, this week's My Sexy Saturday is how your characters fall in love. So I picked one of my favourites, Niall and Rose from You Found Me, a Scottish/British historical romance.

She looked toward the voice. Niall was by the window, holding the babe upright with the tiny blond head snuggled against his cheek. The rest of his little body fitted against Niall’s massive chest, held by his strong gentle hands.
She fell in love, right there and then, with the pair of them. Her heart pounded in her chest, her mind swirling. She could not live without them; they were hers. Her men. The pair of them looked so right together. Her son’s paleness against Niall’s darkness. But she knew in her heart it was all wrong. She must tell Niall the truth, she thought for the thousandth time. She owed it to him. He had given everything of himself and more. Honesty, acceptance, security, and his love, and how had she repaid him? With omission and silence.

As the writer, I fell in love with Niall long before I wrote this scene.  Sigh...
And Lynn, I apologize again for breaking the 7 rule! ;) 
Perhaps I should stop posting the rules, or ya know, obey them. :)

#MySexySaturday Pushing the Boundaries


My Sexy Saturday ~ The rules are simple  
Post 7 paragraphs or 7 sentences or 7 words from a WIP or published work
Welcome to the 21st week of My Sexy Saturday.
Have you ever read a book that pushes the boundaries on sex? Maybe the characters do something a little unusual, a little different. Or maybe the characters just push their boundaries when making a play for someone because they want them in their lives. Let’s face it, all characters take risks when trying to win their mate. Sometimes it’s so hot, it sizzles the pages. Sometimes it’s that quiet moment alone in front of a fire. Wherever and whatever it may be, or the characters may do, it’s agreed that writers love to share those moments with you. Join us this week as we share some of those red light sexy encounters be they tame, hot or sizzling.

The highlighted sentence in the paragraph above provided by our lovely My Sexy Saturday Blog Hop hostess Lynn, caught my attention. Because for Hailey and Mike, from my erotic romance Swap; trying to fight their attraction is nearly impossible and not only do they push the boundaries physically and morally, so did I in writing this book. But being my first one, I was completely unaware that I'd been bucking one of the long unwritten rules of writing romance. Absolutely, No Cheating. You see, Hailey is married to Mike's brother, Brent (Mike is also entangled). I think that qualifies as risk-taking and boundary pushing. Ahh, ignorance is bliss!

I looked up at him, wanting a repeat of the other night. Was he having the same thoughts? I knew he was aroused. I didn’t even have to look. I could see the desire in his eyes. It made my skin prickle with raw heat. He just kept standing there, as if he didn’t want to leave. Do it, Michael, I encouraged him in my head. He wanted it, too. I could see it. Or was I just wishing for it to be there?

What would he do if I made the first move? Ripped at his clothes, sank to my knees in front of him and took his jutting cock into my mouth, leaving him no options? I knew he wouldn’t be able to resist it. Why couldn’t I just seize my chance? Why couldn’t I just tempt him, push him right over the edge of control?


I hope you enjoyed this extraction from Swap. Don't forget to check out the rest of this week's My Sexy Saturday participants from the list below.

Have a Sexy Saturday!
