Lord of Scoundrels

Totally AWESOME!!! Utterly debauched hero punishes the heroine who shot him (he earned it) by…marrying her, of course. A battle of wills begun over her brother cascades into art restoration (he wants the painting), dance cards (destroyed and deposited into a potted plant), lawyers (“exclusive ownership and breeding rights”), seduction (she’s the aggressor), bastard child (his, terrorizing the village…no surprise there), and ultimately, his heart (a month of blind obedience following a spat causes him to panic). Fortunately, the heroine refuses to allow him to make her miserable, and he decides his wife gets her own category under the subject of females.

Lord of Scoundrels

Favorite quote:
Dain gazed down in profound puzzlement. He saw a flimsy wisp of a female attempting, apparently, to do him injury with a bit of millinery.

Lord Dain’s fingers began to itch, and a snake of heat stirred and writhed in the pit of his belly.
The tickling bonnet became an irritation.

Premature Pursuit

As “Premature Pursuit” is my own writing, have brought in a guest blogger (F. O’Trehy) to review it:

Thank you, Ms Santa.
Very Christmassy!
I especially liked the scene of the incremental insertion of the penis into the vagina. A metaphor for Chris Kringle cumming down the chimney?
Must be.
Of course, clearly, I searched for words in the text. Odd that the first three words I searched for had no matches found.

Impressive, but perhaps telling, that you managed to describe a sex scene using clitoris, vagina, nipples, vulva and cervix; but referred to the penis as “it”.
In fact, neither penis, cock, dick, johnson, pud, or zub appear anywhere in your current work of art.

As a man who strives for literary accomplishments, maybe I should be concerned.
But….after reading your good work, and writing this…..I have to go do something now.

So, Merry Christmas!
