Valentine’s Day Gift Hop!

KMAh, Valentine’s Day. That day, once a year, when you’re expected to come up with the most loving, thoughtful gift…

The sort of thing I suck at.

I think the last time I picked something halfway decent for my husband it was a full size deer target for bow hunting – so I told him I got him a hart for Valentine’s Day. Come on, aren’t puns romantic?

It’s hard enough trying to come up with one good gift. In the newest installment of the Badass Brats, where there are four people in love, things get a little more complicated when it comes to gift-giving occasions.

As long as the sex is hot, maybe cool presents are less important?

What’s the worst Valentine’s Day gift you’ve ever received?

“But why? I was sleeping,” Saya said, her voice quiet and plaintive. She wriggled and realized he was spooned up against her and his hard-on was pressing along the dip of her ass. A finger rubbed impatiently at her clit then worked into her pussy. She kicked his shin with her heel, but he just chuckled.


Heat rushed through her and she pressed her ass back against him, the conditioning too strong to resist, even though she just wanted to go back to sleep.

She sighed in exasperation.

“I woke up hard. Are you trying to say I can’t? Do you think I should be like the guys at the garage, always complaining I can’t get any?” Master’s growl paired with the finger moving inside her made the hair on the back of her neck stand up, and she shivered.

“No, Master,” she groveled in a small voice.

“Anytime I want you, your answer is supposed to be what?”

Saya’s heart fluttered. “Yes, Master.”

He pulled her ass backward until she was angled the way he wanted, and then he drove his cock into her in one stroke. Saya’s body rebelled, her insides burned. She wasn’t ready. Master took her anyway. Gripping her hip, he plunged into her over and over until her body welcomed his, begging for more. A moment later he thrust hard and grunted into her ear. Inside her, his cock twitched, filling her with his seed.

“Nooo!” she whimpered. No, no, no! She wasn’t done!

The bite at her neck was unexpected, and made her squeak.


Master withdrew from her and yanked the back of her pants back up. He wrapped an arm around her and settled for sleep, his hand firmly gripping one of her breasts.

She made a sound of frustration and ground back against Master, hoping to convince him to get her off.

“Shh. You’re going to wake up Winter and Mack. Be good or you’ll get a spanking.” Two minutes later, while she was still trying to figure out if maybe she wanted a spanking, he started snoring.

Saya lay snug in his arms, burning and sore, feeling like the luckiest, most frustrated slave in the world.

So What’s Up with the Series? What’s Coming Next?

I thought I’d pop by and answer some questions we’ve been getting about the future of the Badass Brats series and what me (Leia), Cari, and Sorcha are up to.

First of all, we took a little break from BB and are all part of a new sexy erotic anthology called Kept. We joined up with Holly Roberts, Angela Castle, and Connie Schooley to create a mega-book with 6 novellas, all with a capture fantasy theme. Four of them involve aliens, one is vampires, and the other introduces us to the world of the succubi. Below, you can read a little more about it.

As for the Badass Brats series… Sorcha Black is working hard on the 5th book, The Dom with the Kink Monsters. We’re still working on a cover (I have to get my ass in gear) then we can do a big reveal. Release date for Kink Monsters… We’re looking at sometime in April.

Leia is planning to release a quirky, humorous New Adult called Boy Meets Nerd in April.

Cari’s novella in Kept sparked a new sci-fi series called Preyfinders.

And Sorcha is almost done editing her fantasy erotic novel Ein.

kept_smKept Blurbs:

From the darkest parts of the underworld, to aliens hunting on Earth, to planets far away, each of these capture-themed novellas by six bestselling authors takes you on a wild ride that will heat up your fantasies and keep you up all night long…reading.

From Holly Roberts, Sergeant Kelly Myers fights a war that humans are losing but there may be a way out. Can she sacrifice her blood and body to a vampire to save her country or is Talon worse than the evil trying to kill them all?

From Angela Castle, For alien King K’marr, time is running short, he captures and claims the human Ashlyn Sawyer as his. Yet, Ash objects over his methods of persuasion. Can K’marr convince Ash they are Soul Bonds or will she let him succumb to the abyss of madness?

From Cari Silverwood’s new Preyfinder series, A Preyfinder is trained to withstand hardship and pain, but Jadd would rather kneel before a firestorm than leave his captive, Brittany, to be stalked and killed. The choice between love and loyalty to his soldier brothers may tear him in two.

From Sorcha Black, Lying tangled in her sheets each night, dreaming of sex, virginal Shiloh never meant to tempt the spying succubus. Even so, the accident of their mutual infatuation wouldn’t save Shiloh or Moth from the Council’s wrath.

From C.L. Scholey, Lost in a forest, poison ivy for an unwanted companion. Two hot aliens take the form of friends spirit her away aboard their alien vessel. Can life get any stranger for Cali? It can. Add some mind blowing sex and hang on!

From Leia Shaw, Accidentally turning off a device that could destroy earth, Maggie finds herself abducted by Baen, a man with an accent as sexy as his rugged looks. As he drags her to Scotland to fix it, chemistry between the two explodes, but is it enough for a happily ever after?

Five things you don’t know about Sorcha Black

Why you’d want to know these things about me, I have no idea, but here goes:

1. I have very unrefined taste buds. Think of the kind of food you’d feed to a toddler you didn’t know well, and that’s pretty much what I’ll eat. Bland and boring, or boring with salt are my favorites. I don’t eat fancy cheeses and I don’t like wine or caviar. I have Kraft Dinner taste on a Kraft Dinner budget.

2. On any given day, except when I have to go to a business holiday party, I wear a black t-shirt and jeans. Sleeve length is pretty much the only variation. Other than my blue jeans, most of the rest of my clothing is black, including my coats and shoes. Even my tattoos match. I love shopping but rarely bother buying anything for myself, because I know I won’t wear it. This could possibly make me the best shopping buddy ever, because I’m willing to shop for whatever other people want to look at.

3. The only three tv shows I watch right now are Game of Thrones, Walking Dead, and True Blood. I don’t have much time for tv and most of the shows available don’t interest me.

4. Small talk is not my forte. I swear a lot. I have peculiar taste in music, movies or books, so I usually can’t contribute to the conversation. When I get bored I tend to say risqué things to see if I can start a more interesting conversation. If you’re introduced to me at a convention, you might prefer speaking with Leia, my stunt conversationalist.

5. I’ve had a lot of dance training, but rarely dance at public functions. Aside from belly dance, I also took jazz, tap, acro and modern. You’d think that would make me graceful. You’d be wrong. Toes cringe at the sound of my name.


Slaves of Destiny

Leia here. I have a new book I’m going to do a little shameless promotion for. On my other blogs, my more vanilla slightly tame ones, I listed the top ten reasons to buy my new book, Slaves of Destiny. But for you kinky folk, you get an even better version!

Top five things that make Slaves of Destiny a sexy erotic book that you just must read:

1. There’s an incubus (or two). Come on. Wings, muscle, evilness. A kidnapper of women to use as sex food. Hot, right?


2. There’s also a slave auction in an Underworld brothel.

Sorry. It was too ironic not to use this photo.

Sorry. It was too ironic not to use this photo.

3. Possessive alpha male? Check!

He kicked off his pants and felt a wave of relief as his cock sprang free. There was a sense of rightness at seeing her beneath him, eagerly waiting, wet and hungry. He wanted to sate her, not just today and not just to ease her pain, but forever. The satyrs could go fuck themselves.

This woman was his.

4. Uhh, the heroine is a nymph. As in nymphomaniac. Need I say more?


5.  War prize!

He ducked down then hefted her over his shoulder. She gave a surprised yelp, but went limp.  Right now, she was his war prize. A sudden thrill raced down her spine. War prize. There was something sexy about that. Wetness dampened between her thighs.


If that doesn’t convince you, what about the cover?



There’s much, much more that I didn’t list — like sweet wine kisses, and hair pulling, and BJ’s, and tickle fights — but I wouldn’t want to ruin the fun of reading all that! So buy the book. And come to the dual party Cari and I are throwing Friday (Dec. 20th) on Facebook! We’re giving away amazon gift cards so make sure to join!

Here are the buy links and the blurb.

From the Shadows of Destiny Series… 

More than a hundred years ago, the last nymph tribe was hunted to near extinction. Only one frightened girl escaped. Seraphina. 

During a soul-searching expedition, philosophy professor, Bodhi, comes across an ethereal creature bathing in a waterfall. She’s both playful and beautiful and soon he finds himself bewitched. The fantasy crumbles when a winged figure steps from a portal and steals away the girl. Drawn to help her, he follows them into a world of nightmares. 

Discover what Fate has planned for them in this novella, Slaves of Destiny.

Polyamory Workshop — We Need Your Help!

Me (Leia) and Sorcha will be attending BDSM CON in NYC August 2014. This is a 4 day conference for readers and writers interested in the BDSM lifestyle. There’s lots of demos, discussions, panels, a trip to a club, and a book signing. Honestly, it looks like a lot of fun and I’m excited to go.

There, Sorcha and I are presenting a workshop about Polyamory (and other multi-partner relationships). The official blurb is as follows:

As women’s fantasies are expanding, the market has become ripe for multiple-partner romances. But adding more characters to the bed can sometimes feel like a game of Twister. In this workshop, we’ll explore the different types of multi-partner relationships, how to portray them accurately, and how to weave in the dynamics of a D/s lifestyle.

We’ve been asked to provide more information about our workshop but it’s so far away Sorcha and I haven’t given it a whole lot of thought yet. We spoke recently and wondered what readers and writers wanted to know about the topic of multi-partner relationships. Here’s where we need your help!

Leave a comment with ideas on what you’d be interested in learning or hearing about at a workshop like this. If you have specific questions about it, that would be helpful too. Then we’ll know how to steer our workshop. If you’re not comfortable leaving a comment, you can always email me at leia (at) leiashaw (dot com).

Thank you in advance for your involvement! We love hearing from fans and other writers about our books, your stories, and everything you share with us. We just love talking with you guys!


Five Things you Don’t Know About Leia Shaw

My turn! Five things you don’t know about me. Well, if you follow me on facebook, you probably know a lot about me by now so I’ll have to be creative. Hmm. Maybe you should run away now. Mwahahaha.

1. I have a tic. I do this snorting thing. Well, not really a snort. That’s sounds terribly unattractive. It’s more like a… like a whale blowing out of its blowhole. Just a little. It’s hardly noticeable. Unless you’re sitting next to me.

2. I am a bit of a musician. In fourth grade I started playing the cello. I really wanted to play the viola cause I really liked the word “viola” but my grandma played the cello and I knew it would break her heart if I didn’t pick it. So for years and years, I took lessons, played in orchestras and string quartets, and even a Klezmer band (Jewish folk music) until I got pretty damned good. But I sucked at music theory, which oddly has a lot to do with Math (which I failed twice), so I could never be a director or composer or anything fancy. Now I don’t have time to play anymore but someday in the future, I might pick it up again and see what I remember. Same goes for piano. I started lessons at 6 but got rusty without regular practice.


Yup. This is what I do. I play my cello. Sexy cello playing 😉

3. I’m a former job hopper. After high school, I went to college way too early, before I really knew what I wanted to do. What I needed to do was “find myself” and the heavy dose of academics just bogged me down. I failed most of my classes and quit after 2 years. To my shame, I’m still paying off debt, which sucks bad. After that, I tried a plethora of careers: ski lift painting, special ed assistant, cotton candy seller at the circus (I kid you not), foster parent recruiter, pedicure giver, and more. Finally, I settled on writing and haven’t looked back. Turns out you don’t need a degree to be an author! Yay! But, seriously, if you want a real job, get a degree.

4. I’m pretty well-traveled. Yeah, so remember all that about finding myself up there? ^^ During and after college, I did a lot of traveling. I taught kids English in Russia. I did street theater in Amsterdam. I helped with rebuilding projects in Jamaica and Mexico. I even got lost in Germany!  Fun times. Now all that is behind me and there’s no future in adventuring until the kids move out. *sigh* I tell them that every day. “As soon as you move out in 15 years, Mommy gets her life back.”



5. I got up close and personal with a bear in the wild. I went through a super adventurous phase in my early twenties where I went
backpacking all over the country, learned to rock climb, white-water rafted and all that. I have TONS of stories from getting dehydrated and hallucinating to almost getting chased by a mountain lion, to scaling some ridiculously dangerous cliffs with no rope, to getting charged by a mountain goat. But the best story is when a black bear climbed into our lean-to while we were sleeping, not five feet in front of me. The story is hilarious if you ever see me in person. I tell great stories, complete with dramatic hand gestures, facial expression, screaming, the whole nine yards.

So I thought this would be hard but it turns out I have LOTS to say! Hmm. Imagine that. Anyway, five is enough for now. Maybe we’ll do this again some day.

Anyone have similar experiences as me? Or leave a comment just to let us know you’re here!


Five Things You Don’t Know About Cari Silverwood

5 Things you don’t know about me

1/ I used to be an okay cook but since acquiring children I’ve become a regurgitarian cook. If they say they both like something I add it to my special list of foods to be made over and over.

2/ I live in Australia where there are beaches. Yay! And Leia didn’t want me to say that.

3/ I once played the part of Death on stage with the whole scythe and black robe and skull mask thing going.

4/ I once sat in a sauna with several Welsh weight lifters, naked. They were in town for a big sports thing. I enjoyed trying to give them heart attacks.

5/ I used to know all my plants in my garden by name but now they’re lucky if they get watered once a year.

6/ I’m doing six because Leia will grumble about 2. I hate squashing cockroaches because you end up with a squished mess with little legs. Those legs… *shudder* And spraying them is worse because they try to run up your leg.
