Sneak Peak Snippet - A Brush of Violet #WipItUp @CorbinsBend 9/24/14

Welcome to my stop on the WIP It Up Wednesday blog hop! With my brand spanking new novel, A Brush of Violet, coming out on November 5th I will be sharing small teasers to put us all in the mood! I'm going to start at the beginning and post a little each week until release day. If you're interested in going straight to the spanking scenes, be sure to check out my posts on the Saturday Spankings Blog Hop.

“Everleigh,” she began, “you know it’s not that easy for me to get time off of work. And it sounds like you’re talking about quite a bit of time if you want me to help with the organization of a project this big--”
 ”No, no, no,” Everleigh interrupted, “the time is not significant. I will be doing all of the major planning. I just want you to be there with me, Vi. How can I do something like this without you?” she asked with a waver in her voice. “You know, I always imagined growing up that we would open a studio together when we were older. Plans change and that’s fine, but I don’t want to do this without you. Can you honestly tell me you don’t miss it at all?”
 “Of course I do. I don’t have time to miss it very often, but it’s still in my heart, in my blood.”
 “Good,” Everleigh cut her off, “then no excuses. Come for a week or two and let that side out a little. It will be good for you to flex your creative muscles. We both know how overworked you are,” she said, her voice firm.
 Violet laughed out right. “Okay you’ve got me, I surrender! I miss you too and you’re right, it’s been way too long since I’ve picked up a paint brush or dug my hands into some clay. This could be fun.”
 “Could be? Will be, you mean,” Everleigh exclaimed, indignant. “This is going to be a blast,” her tone lightened immediately. “Like old times.”
 “Yeah, they are going to kill me for taking time off but,” Violet smiled, “it will be worth it to see you.“
 “Oh it won’t just be me,” Ever teased. “Mark my words, you are going to get here and fall head over heels for one of these spanking studs that we have here in Corbin’s Bend.”
 Violet’s face burned as the words got to her. Thank God Ever couldn’t see her face over the phone. She didn’t need her best friend to know how much the word spanking still got to her. “I doubt it,” she chuckled with bravado, “but you’re welcome to try.”
  “Oh come on.” She could practically hear her friend rolling her eyes. “You and I both know that finding yourself over some handsome, strong, and sexy as hell man’s lap getting your bottom turned a blazing red would be too decadent for even you to resist. Remember I know who you really are inside.”
 Violet squeaked, coughing quickly to cover it up, “And you know it will never work in the life that I have. Relationships like that don’t work in the world I live in. However, I am looking forward to seeing you. I know how much you love where you live and I am happier for you than you can imagine,” she said, genuinely happy for her friend. “I love that you have found exactly what you want out of life. I just don’t see how it would ever work for me.” She sighed feeling wistful for what might have been.
 “Fine, just promise me that while you are here that you will take off your corporate suit and let the real you come out to play okay, Vi? I want to see the real you and have some fun the way that we used to.”
 “I promise. I will let myself have some fun. And if I’m honest a little “community” experience while I’m there wouldn’t be so bad, if you know what I mean. We’ll just see what happens.”
 “That’s all I’m asking. Plus I have a feeling you will find that we have some pretty compatible men here with exactly that little something that you can’t resist.”
 “Well, whatever happens, I’m looking forward to spending time with you. That is the only thing that matters to me on this trip.”
 “Alright, I will email you the forms you will need to reserve your booth, and any other information you might need. Now eat some dinner and go take a long hot bubble bath.”
 “Are you sure it’s you who gets her butt spanked in your relationship?” She laughed, teasing. “Because you sure do know how to be little Miss bossy pants.”
 “Hey, I can’t help it if I know what my best friend needs better than she does. Now scoot. I will talk to you later.”
 “Okay, talk to you later, Ever.” Violet smiled as she hung up the phone.

She had to admit a trip like this was exactly what she needed right now. She couldn’t wait to pull out some of her old art work.

A Brush of Violet

Length: Novella
Genre: DD/spanking erotic romance
Series: Corbin's Bend

High powered business woman, Violet Walker, has long left her artistic days behind. That is until her best friend, Everleigh Harris, invites her to Corbin's Bend for an art festival. What Everleigh doesn't know is that Violet hasn't been able to paint a single brush stroke since turning her back on her submissive desires and spanking needs in college. When she meets charismatic and drop dead gorgeous Charles her world is turned completely upside down. Will Violet, overworked, burnt out, and in denial of her deepest wants and desires, be able to surrender when love knocks on her door?

Charles Robinson, President of the discipline Board in Corbin’s Bend and longtime resident, adores the community he lives in and the freedom it provides for all who live there. Raised in a traditional family; love and discipline are a way of life for him. There’s nothing he wants more than a marriage just like his parents where spanking and romance go hand in hand, even if that means holding out for true love. Is Violet just the kind of woman he’s looking for?

Will Violet risk the life she’s built for herself in blood, sweat, and tears for the undeniable connection she has with Charles, the utter bliss and contentment she feels when she’s over his lap? Can Charles convince Violet she really can have it all? Will this trip be just what she needs to rekindle all that she has lost since joining the corporate world?
