Excuse me while I have a fan girl moment. Shelley Munro might be the entire reason I started reading BDSM. The Bottom Line Was the first remotely kinky book I ever read, and I still love it tot his day. So–OMG–please give a warm welcome to Shelley!

Hi! My name is Shelley Munro, and I love writing romances. Today, I’d like to introduce you to my Love and Friendship series, which is available from Samhain Publishing.

The first book in the series, The Bottom Line, features a heroine whose curiosity about spanking starts her on a journey to finding Mr. Right. During a girl’s night out she confesses her fascination with spanking to her friends, and she tells them she’s writing a blog about her adventures.

TheBottomLine72LGWhile Maggie might have an interest in spanking, she has a problem finding the right man to do the spanking, and this forms part of the conflict in The Bottom Line.

Along with Maggie, the reader learns a little more about the “kink” of spanking as Maggie details her new knowledge in her blog. She discusses topics such as how to communicate spanking needs, what makes a person leap into the world of spanking, talking to a partner, spanking implements and which lingerie to wear while receiving a spanking.

The Bottom Line isn’t a hard core spanking story. It’s more a journey of discovery and trust as Maggie finds her happy-ever-after with Connor.

Here’s the blurb:

Spicing up her sex life sounds exciting…until the fantasy hits the fan.

When Maggie Drummond buys an erotic romance novel by mistake, she gets more than an unexpected eyeful. She gets an introduction to a world that arouses her to a fever pitch: Spanking.

Her boyfriend isn’t interested in pushing his vanilla-flavored sexual boundaries. Then there’s Connor Grey, who haunts her fantasies like a magical genie. As a source of masculine advice for her and her female friends, he’s off limits. The only safe place to explore her fetish is her anonymous blog.

The recent changes in Maggie don’t escape Connor’s notice. Now that her boyfriend has dropped her, he can finally—carefully—make his move. Given his family history, laying a hand on any woman, even in fun, is a line he’s reluctant to cross. But for Maggie? Anything the lady wants.

As Maggie gives in to the temptation to let Connor add some sin to her life, she finds herself juggling lies, half-truths, friendship and sensual delights. Her job is in jeopardy—and she’s falling in love. Exploring her fantasy is one thing, but she’s beginning to question if indulging her own pleasure is worth the cost to everyone around her. Especially Connor…

Tell me what sort of underwear you’d choose to wear if you were about to be spanked for a misdemeanor.

    Hmmmm! Spanking, my favorite kink to read about. Love it. I am firm believer that a good spanking should be applied to the bare bottom. That being said, having a pair of undies hanging around the knees is kind of hot too. Some good old fashion cotton panties being pulled down to knee and then the spanking . . . *sigh* Excuse me, I need to go now. 😉

    Thanks for the giveaway & Happy Thursday!

    Wow! What neat history, Sidney and Shelley! Hee! And hmm… something cute? Maybe it’ll distract the spanker? 😀

    No need to include me in the draw–good luck, everyone–The Bottom Line is a delicious read!
