Excerpt:

Time for the can-can show. My heart palpitated in anticipation. Shamelessly I watched the four women file on stage in their long matching red skirts and black stockings. A red feather in their hair.

 

Mr. Wilson finished the intro music. I gave him a small smile and nod before returning my attention to the women. I let out a quiet sigh. They were all beauties. When I was younger, I cried myself to sleep wishing I had their figure; now full grown I had given up on that dream. I wasn’t tall and leggy like Lulu. I wasn’t as curvy as Rose. I didn’t have Amanda’s fiery red hair or Delilah’s flawless complexion. I was just average.

 

The black silk chokers around their necks helped draw attention to their faces and lower to their breasts. The ladies grabbed their skirts and walked to the edge of the stage, swishing their petticoats suggestively and showing off their white bloomers. Many men let out cheers or said lewd comments. Ash rushed in and grabbed a seat. He leaned back in his chair put two fingers to his lips and let out a shrill whistle. Like me, he caught as many performances as he could. The bastard had become a regular fixture in Bitterroot Flats, easily partaking in the entitlements. Including murder. He must have had a past with Fletcher. Done jobs together, maybe even served time together.

 

I had to put up with him. But I didn’t have to pretend to like him. I seared his back with a fiery stare, hoping he could feel my anger.

 

I wish I never had to see Ash again. I wish I had the power to ban him from the Honey Ranch. The power to keep him from Amanda would be some satisfaction, but the Fletcher Gang owned the town. Ash could do whatever he damn well pleased and I was powerless to stop him.

 

I exhaled slowly. Ash wasn’t going to spoil the show for me. I focused on the women, their every seductive move. The dancers turned around in place before prancing around the stage in a small circle, flashing the gentlemen big smiles. Their faces, heavily painted with rouge and lip paint, glowed under the stage’s lighting. A thrill zipped through me when they formed a line again and started their high kicks. Some of the men clapped, keeping time with the music. Others tapped their empty beer glasses on the tables. The rowdy atmosphere didn’t bother me anymore. The scent of beer and whiskey wafted through the air, mixing with the smell of sweat, horses, and the honeysuckle perfume the ladies wore. I easily tuned out the men, my attention narrowing to the women working the stage as if their lives depended on it. How they managed to dance so well in those high-heeled black boots I’d never know. They helped show off their legs, though. And I could drool over all those legs. Heat and desire burning in my belly, I hoped no one could read my dirty thoughts.

 

The women continued playing with their skirts, bending forward and then slowly pulling their skirts back to reveal their stockings a little at a time. They were all such a tease, enticing the men. And me as well. When they turned around and pulled their skirts over their head to show off their behinds, I clenched my thighs together, my drawers dampening.

 

Oooh. This was a good show. The ladies were sure to each land a client, beckoning a man to their rooms after the dance. How many times had I wished it would be me? Whoever heard of a woman servicing another woman at a whorehouse? Whoever heard of a woman wanting to lie with another woman?

 

 

Guest Post Info

 

What inspired you to write The Virgin Madam?

 

I have a history degree, so when I began writing romance I naturally gravitated toward the historical genre. I was disappointed to see there were very few F/F historicals available. So I decided it was time for me to write my own. The Virgin Madam was my first published lesbian romance, and I am excited that is finally being re-released.

 

I grew up watching westerns my favorite being Gunsmoke. Maybe that was why the first F/F idea I got involved a cowgirl and a madam. Laura and Josephine both came to me as fully formed characters. Laura inherits a brothel after her Papa is murdered. She thought she’d be trapped in Bitterroot Flats and lonely for the rest of her life until the tomboy Josephine struts into her life and wants to make her fantasies come true.

 

 

Lesbians in the Wild West

 

Today it isn’t unusual in the United States for a woman to be married to another woman, or for a woman to be with another woman as a life partner. Gay rights have come a long way, and yes there is still a long way to go.

 

The Virgin Madam takes place in Bitterroot Flats, California in 1879. During this time it was definitely considered sinful to have intimate relations with the same sex and there were many laws on the books making it a crime.

 

Laura Rutherford inherits her papa’s brothel after he is murdered. Becoming the madam makes controlling her urges for the working women even more difficult. She fights these thoughts and thinks she is a freak until she meets Josephine “Joe” Bascum who shares who desire to share her life with another woman.

 

Josephine “Joe” Bascum dresses like a cowboy and has lived many years of her life as a man. I’ve read many historical accounts where one of the ladies has a boyish frame and parades around town with a woman on her arm. It is the only safe way Joe can be with a woman and it fit her tomboy personality well. From their first meeting, she wants to get Laura to come out of her shell and accept who she is. But will that acceptance lead to a future together?

Gay Couple Love Home Concept

EXCERPT: CLIPPED WINGS BY SHILOH SADDLER

After a quiet meal, Christopher followed Stephen up a back staircase and down a long hallway. “This is my room. Our room.” He opened the door and Christopher was pleasantly surprised to see it furnished with all the essentials: bed, chest of drawers, washstand with bowl and pitcher and even a small mirror hanging on the wall.

Christopher quickly stripped off his clothes and lounged on top of the covers. Arms folded behind his head, he stared up at the ceiling, struggling to hold back a smile. Stephen’s lustful stare heated him, and it took all of his restraint to not react. He would not make the first move. However, he wouldn’t make it easy to resist his charms. He needed help to get his feathers back, and Stephen might be his ticket to freedom.

“You’re naked.” Stephen’s voice had a raspy quality.

“It is summer. I’m hot-blooded.” Finally, turning to look at him, he offered a shrug. “I hope you don’t mind.”

“No, no of course, not,” Stephen croaked.

Christopher struggled to hold back a laugh. His roommate was not a good liar. “Do you sleep naked, too?”

“No, I…” Stephen swallowed hard and Christopher eyed his bobbing Adam’s apple. “I—I have a nightshirt.”

“Oh.” Christopher tried to keep his disappointment from showing. He could make quick work of that piece of clothing.

Back turned, Stephen changed into his nightshirt and then washed his face and brushed his teeth with tooth powder. It seemed like hours before his weight dipped the mattress, although it was really only a few minutes. Christopher’s heart thumped against his ribcage. He silently appraised Stephen’s prone form and his cock stirred.

Taking a deep breath, he told himself to behave. Nude, it was hard to hide his desire. A smile tugged at his lips. From his searing gaze Stephen had to know he was interested.

Rolling on his side, he got a better look at the man fanning the fire in his stomach. “You’re the most handsome man I’ve ever seen,” he whispered.

Stephen’s eyes widened. “I’m nothing special.”

The self-deprecating words knifed through his heated body. Had Master Randall worn down the man’s confidence? He knew how easily that could happen. His promise not to make the first move went out the window. He’d have to show the man just how he felt. Reaching out, he caressed the man’s cheek.

Instantly the hardness in his expression melted away. After a brief kiss, Stephen’s dark eyes hooded. “Mmm. It has been a long time for me.”

“Me too,” Christopher replied and then kissed him again, this time his tongue plunged inside the man’s sweet mouth.

He wasn’t about to say he was a virgin. Not without explaining the ways of his people. Kissing he could do though.

Stephen moaned. Christopher plumbed his mouth stroke after stroke. The taste of salt and onions lingered on his tongue.

Hand slipping under his nightshirt, Christopher skimmed Stephen’s chest, pinching and twirling one nipple.

Stephen growled and Christopher broke the kiss, a chuckle bubbling up his throat. Fingers straying from his nipple, he grazed the dusting of hair leading lower.

Heat blazed with their skin-to-skin contact. His body thrummed and inside his swan crooned. He felt a deep connection with Stephen, not just a physical one. Finally, what was happening clicked into place. Mate. Stephen was his mate. That’s why he couldn’t control his shifting. He’d needed to be in human form to find his mate.

It felt like a double-edged sword—fate blessing and cursing him at the same time….

“I want you in my bed, Shannon. I’ve done nothing for weeks but imagine your long legs wrapped around my hips as I drive my cock into your wet pussy until we both explode.”

She gasped. Her breath grew shallow and rapid as the pulse at her neck fluttered like the wings of a hummingbird. “Mr. Granger. I—”

“Dalton. After all, I’ve just propositioned you in the most intimate of terms. Before you respond, there is more to the bargain you should be aware of. I want you for the weekend.

Excerpt: Mergers and Acquisitions by Sorcha Mowbray

blondr submissive smaller“Are you wearing a garter belt under that skirt?” The impression of straps running the length of her thighs and framing her plump ass had teased him all afternoon. At times he’d been sure of what he saw and at others he thought he’d hallucinated from the desire she stirred within him.

Her cheeks pinked further. “I am.”

All the air left his lungs.

She uncrossed her silky legs and rose. “Would you like to see?”

“Very much. Please, remove the skirt and blouse.” He sat back and waited for her to unwrap his gift to himself.

She unfastened her shirt one tiny pearl button at a time. The silk material slowly parted under her fingertips to reveal lace-covered breasts. A nudge had the blouse floating away to puddle on the floor. Her skirt disappeared much faster as she slid it down her thighs and calves to show the thong and garter that matched her bra. Her waist nipped in before flaring out to luscious hips made for a man’s grip.

He groaned and adjusted his cock in his slacks.

Her eyes trained on the motion, flaring as she took in his state of need.

“Come here.”

Without hesitation, she stepped between his knees. He reached up to take hold of her wrist and tugged her into his lap. As the fleshy cushion of her rump landed against his swollen cock he thanked all the saints for his good fortune. He traced a finger along the lace edge framing her breasts and let it dip into her cleavage. Her nipples puckered to hard nubs. His digit trailed over one mound to flick the hard point through the sexy sheer material. Then he slid his hand up along her neck to cup the back of her head. With a gentle tug, he pulled her toward him and captured her lips in a kiss he’d been fantasizing about for the last month.

Tongues collided to slip and slide in their mingled warmth. She pressed closer to him, her arms snaking around his neck to hang on as though she might float away. She tasted like tea and mint with the butteriness of the merlot they drank. He pulled away from her drugging mouth to regain some semblance of control.

“You’re an excellent kisser, Dalton.” Her husky whisper made his dick jerk in response.

“Sir. You’ll call me Sir while we are having sex. Now, stand.”

She blinked then followed his direction.

Excerpt: Deep Sleep by Eva Lefoy

 

Punishment.” He whispered the word and it floated between us, heating my face until it felt molten.

I struggled to speak as my panties dampened. “Um… what makes you think I want that?”

Zarack’s smile grew wider. “You do realize we’re a telepathic race?”

Memory slapped me across the cheek. Of course. How could I have forgotten such basic research? The Zantarians weren’t telepathic congenitally, but they acquired the technique very young through long years of education. Rumor had it they spent at least a decade in deep, communal sleep during their childhood, probably perfecting their mind-reading abilities. As Zarack was no infant, one could only suppose he had mastered his mind-walking long ago. I shifted in my seat and swallowed. Oh boy. During all those sultry glances he must have doing some serious strolling through the recesses of my grey matter. The idea rattled but also enticed me. “So you’ve been reading my mind while we’ve been sitting here chatting? Picking up all my dirty thoughts?”

He gave a hushed chuckle. “Prishka, it hardly requires mind reading to figure out your needs.” His fingers traced from kneecap up my thigh with light pressure. “You do broadcast your desires rather clearly.”

Zarack started to hum as he caressed me and the sound vibrated up my leg and then through my entire body until every part thrummed in tune with his song. As it went on I entered a different state, almost like stasis, except more conscious – like being dropped into the most majestic whirlpool on the lushest, serenest planet with my senses overflowing. Giving in to the fantasy, my eyelids lowered of their own accord as I sank into the moon-lit clear blue water. “Mmmm.”

“Yes. That’s it.” Zarack resumed his humming, creating an invisible cocoon around the two of us, as though we were the only passengers in the crowded canteen. My head swam, floating on the connection between us growing stronger by the moment and Zarack’s half-naked body coming closer to me every second. The heat from his face radiated over my cheeks, his warm breath tickled my lips. Then, his presence seemed to dissipate into a fine mist and surround me with his undeniably sexy essence. Everywhere the mist touched me I burned for him.

My heart and respiration sped as I desperately sought his mouth, needing to quench this scorching desire. I was on fire and though surrounded by water I needed his touch. I arched toward him, my lips parted to taste of him. I needed to drink him into my being, have him fill every pore to ease this ache his vibrating song teased through me.

Finally his mouth hovered over mine, just a hair’s breadth from the finish line. “Zarack.” I moaned his name breathlessly, both utterly compelled and frustrated by his too-slow approach.

“Prishka,” he whispered, his supple lips whispering against mine. When he finally pressed his mouth to mine and held it, I all but came apart with a shuddering groan.
