Spanking challenge

Spanking A-Z challenge – A is for…

This weekend sees the start of two events on this blog: promoting my new book and the A to Z blogging challenge.  That is one post a day and something for every letter of the alphabet.  I’m nuts (but since that is N I shall come back to that another time). So enjoy this spanking challenge sponsored by Spanking Romance Reviews, and remember to visit other great bloggers.

More about the book below. Back to the challenge.

A…. of course I’m a spanko so I immediately think…  arse.

I’m also British. Not ass, arse.

To me an ass is this, a donkey or mule. I do get that it means bottom, it is a term seen frequently over here courtesy of American imports, but being a Brit, I prefer arse, especially drawn out in a good rural accent with a long AR sound, not a crisp A.

Let’s be blunt here, British English and American English are different languages: we spell differently, have different terms for the same meaning and speak with our own dialects (many British ones are incomprehensible to me!). However, much of our mutual English is similar and comprehensive enough that it doesn’t feel like a different language.

Reading or writing about spanking is a great equaliser. I find that the emotions involved transcend words. The visual imagery, the excitement or thrill of spanking is beyond language. Spanking, whether you do it (top or bottom) or read about it, is truly international.


“Oh, Rick. Dear God, please…” moaned Leah.

“Hush. I’ve still got plans for this arse,” he said. “There’s no rush, is there?”

from Driven Wild

drivenwild_fullWhen Leah Andrews’ father hires him to be her chauffeur, Rick Wilde finds himself drawn to the feisty eighteen-year-old even as his patience is tried by her immature behaviour. At last Leah’s rudeness and bad decisions force him to intervene, and he takes her over his knee for a good, hard spanking—the first of her pampered life—but neither of them are prepared for the powerful attraction which follows. Rick knows she needs time and space to step out on her own two feet without him there to interfere, though, and he breaks things off before they go too far.

After Leah’s father dies three years later she returns to her wild ways, and before long her license has been suspended for reckless driving. To her shock, the chauffeur the agency sends is none other than Rick Wilde, and she soon learns that he remains more than ready to bare her bottom and spank her soundly when she needs it.

His firm handed correction brings her lust for him back with a vengeance, and she quickly discovers that he can bring her more pleasure in the bedroom than she ever dreamed possible. But when danger from one of Rick’s past jobs becomes an imminent threat and Rick needs Leah to leave Liverpool until things are safe again, can she bring herself to obey him even though the thought of losing him a second time is more than she can bear?

Publisher’s Note: Driven Wild is an erotic romance novel that includes spankings, anal play, graphic sexual scenes, and more. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.

  2. LOL, I was going to do arse too, but then I found something else! It’s such a satisfying word. Not just when considering that part of the anatomy but as an insult too! Like: Arsehole! Don’t be such an Arse. They’re words you spit out! You’re being an ass just doesn’t work in the same way for me.

  3. Congrats on the upcoming release Jaye. Love arse and ass. For me as an American, ass holds a different emotion than arse – as with all words I suppose. I love those differences though. I see Tara up there – when I read her books, I love the flair of the Irish! It’s terrific!!

  5. I like arse too. I use it quite a bit IRL. Great post and you’re so right, sometimes it is two different languages but Vive la difference. My publisher is British and sometimes she will question one of my colloquialisms and vice versa. Eh.

  6. Love the excerpt!

  7. I admit to considering a British hero just so I could say arse a lot, even though I never say it in real life 🙂

  9. You are so right about the terms and I know I ought to use “arse” more in my Regeny era books. Will keep that in mind!

    Congrats on the new release and thanks for taking part in the A to Z Challenge!

  10. I’m a Texas girl and I say arse a lot. I really like the way it sounds. I think I started saying it because of all the Regency books that I have read.
    Congrats on the up coming release:))

  11. I visualize two different things when I read panties and knickers – I’m working on it!

  12. I love arse because it just seems a bit milder than ass. 🙂 Ass seems a bit more crass.
