It's #SatSpanks time!

I'm sharing a couple of sentences from my new book TAKEN BY THE BARBARIAN! Hope you enjoy them and be sure to check out the  #SatSpanks blog and the rest of the awesome authors listed below!


Her legs began to quiver and all she concentrated on was his touch on her belly. 

Soon though, the burning intensified and the flames seemed to ignite her very core causing to her rise up again. With a hand on her back, the crop lying against her scorching backside, he pushed her back into position.

“I’m not done yet, Princess.The first lot was for endangering someone else’s life. The second is for having the misguided notion you could give yourself over to any such entity just to avoid me some hardship. And this is for putting your life in danger yet again.”

His crop descended upon her as if from the skies, yet she knew he used no more force than before. But with her cheeks enflamed, the pain quadrupled in intensity.

“Yes, yes. I completely understand, please… please just touch me, my king.”

Having spent her life confined behind the walls of an opulent palace where she could be kept safe and pure, twenty-year-old Princess Saraska is innocent, naïve, and utterly unprepared for what is in store when she is taken captive by Roark, the barbarian ruler of the planet Sentara.

To her surprise, Saraska quickly discovers that while Roark will not hesitate to bare her bottom and spank her thoroughly any time he feels it necessary, the tall, handsome king is far from the ruthless savage she expected. His stern discipline and his bold, intimate exploration of her virgin body leave her quivering with need, and when at last he claims her completely his skilled, dominant lovemaking brings her pleasure more intense than she could have ever imagined.

Though Saraska grew up believing her people were peaceful, she soon begins to realize that she has been lied to her entire life. But when her own father conspires to turn her against Roark, will Saraska see through his schemes and trust in the man she has grown to love?

Publisher’s Note: Taken by the Barbarian includes spankings and sexual scenes. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.


  1. Back-to-back punishments - sounds painful, but I'm getting the impression she's enjoying them. :) Hot snippet!

  2. A riding crop on over a well-warmed bottom - ouch! Congratulations on the new release.

  3. That punishment sounds as well-justified as it does painful. However, Saraska sounds like her backside isn't the only thing inflamed right now. Great excerpt, April, and congrats on your new release.
