Shock registered as his large, firm hand came down hard on her backside. “Jason! What the hell do you—” Another slap rang out in the otherwise quiet barn and she could hear Jason’s breathing getting heavy, faster as he panted out obscenities. Each word was enforced by another crack to her now warming ass.
“You. Will. Not. Put. Yourself. In. Danger.”
Kathryn felt a blush of heat infuse her face, trailing down her neck to her chest, just as the high temperature spread out over her bruising bottom and down her thighs, sending a rush of moisture to her core. She felt mortified to be in this position. How dare he treat me like a child! Sputtering and attempting her best to wiggle away from his forceful punishment, Kathryn wasn’t sure if she were more disgusted by the fact she was being spanked, or her response to his manhandling and objectification.
Jason raged on, “You. Will. Take. Better. Care. Of. Yourself. Young. Lady.”
It was clear to her she’d crossed some line, though she truly didn’t understand what, and he didn’t seem to be slowing any as her buttocks now began a throbbing, searing burn. Tears sprung to her eyes against her will, and for the first time in forever Kathryn couldn’t contain them and had no choice but to let them fall. She stilled her movements, became docile and prone over his legs, no longer fighting the spanking as tears tracked down her face and dropped into the hay on the floor of the barn. The contrast of emotions running through her at this moment sucked away her very breath. Here she was, lying over the lap of her protector like an errant child, getting her ass tanned six ways from Sunday–honestly the first time she had ever been spanked in her life–and yet she was reacting to it as if he’d stroked her intimately.
Ever since she was young, Kiki Howell has loved to listen to a well-woven tale with real characters, inspired plots, and delightful resolutions. Kiki could spend hours lost in a book, and soon she knew that creating lives, loves, and losses with just words had to be the greatest thing that she could do. To that end, she pursued her study of literature and writing, earning a bachelor’s degree in English. She then followed in a Master’s program in Creative Writing.
“After a long break having my boys, I finally just had to write again. And, as soon as I gave the stories the space, they entered it. It’s both awesome and humbling to find the words in my mind become characters on a page and create their lives.”
She has now had over forty stories published between eleven different publishers. She could not be more thrilled or grateful to see her creations polished and out in the real world. Please look around. Although, a bit of caution, most of her stories tend to hang out on the graphically sexy side of town.
In May, 2011, Kiki was chosen as an Ohioana Book Festival author for her novel,Torn Asunder. She’s also had three flash fiction stories win writing contests. Since the fall of 2013, she’s had three novels – Hidden Salem, Salem’s Revenge, and What Lies Within Us – hit Amazon Top 100 Bestsellers Lists in several categories like Paranormal, Suspense, Ghosts, Gothic Fiction, and Occult Horror. Just recently, the second in her Salem Series, Salem’s Revenge, hit the Top 10 on Amazon in Witch & Wizard Thrillers.
In March 2015, Kiki coordinated and edited her first charity anthology, We Go On, with all proceeds going to veteran’s charities.
Kiki resides in the Midwest with her incredibly handsome and talented, singer/songwriter husband and two children. When she is not writing, she is spending time with her family, reading, watching tv or knitting.
Hello Kiki! Thank you for taking the time to join us for an interview about your story in the Alpha Fever Book Set!
How long have you been a writer and how did you come to writing?
I’ve been writing since I was a kid and didn’t like how a TV show or book ended and re-wrote the ending in my head. Eventually, I started creating my own stories and putting them down on paper. As life would have it, there have been times in my life when I couldn’t write, but the desire has stayed.
What are the best and the worst aspects of writing?
Best aspects of writing are researching and writing that first draft. Worst aspects are all the other crap that evolves around that *giggles*
What inspires you to write?
So many things, from a story someone told me that I didn’t like the ending to, so in my head I fixed it to a vague idea od a type of character or situation that evolves into a plot.
What is the title of your story included in Alpha Fever? How did you come up with this story?
Cowboy Boots and Handcuffs, written with Gina Kincade. Honestly, this story line was Gina’s idea, and I just rolled with it.
How did you conduct your research for Cowboy Boots and Handcuffs?
Online, taking virtual trips to ranches in California along with looking up a few things a wealthy woman would do there to pass the time.
What are 3 of your favorite lines/quotes from Cowboy Boots and Handcuffs ?
Sorry, but I find questions like this a challenge. Picking a favorite anything from song to book to line is just impossible for me. So, that said, I’m putting all three (or a few more) lines together. This snippet gives a good love this look into our wealthy, spoiled heroine’s mindset in the beginning.
I’m not spoiled, just deserving. Daddy says so. I’m entitled to more than living like a prisoner in these low-class places with heathen–all muscles with no brains or class–guys watching my every move, loving looking down on me out of sheer jealousy. The words rumbled around in her brain so violently they were causing a headache.
What would your friends say is your best quality?
I’m told that I’m a good listener.
Are reader reviews important to you?
To some extent. Always thrilled to hear that someone likes the book, and I believe everyone is entitled to their own opinion, so bad reviews if honest don’t bother me, but those who have to be mean does bother me. You can say you don’t like a story without phrasing it that it made you want to throw you Kindle across the room.
Do you have any blogs/websites?
What do you do when you don’t write?
I’m a wife and mom, so all that family and home stuff like grocery shopping and paying bills, etc, but right now I’m also in Yoga Teacher Training, so that is keeping me very busy and sore *winks*
Tell us about your other books?
Well, actually, Cowboy Boots and Handcuffs is a bit different for me, as I usually write paranormal characters. I’m in quite a few box sets rights now. I have a shifter story, Mystical Mayhem in the Alpha Shifters After Dark Box Set available now. Releasing in April, I have more magical novel, What Lies Within Us (also co-authored with Gina Kincade), in the Beyond the Veil Box Set. I have a page on my website that I am constantly updating on just Box Setshttp://www.kikihowell.com/2015/10/box-sets.html
If you could share one thing about yourself that you would like readers to know what would it be?
Netflix is the downfall of my word count goals!
Thanks for having Me!
