Evernight Publishing author, Beth D Carter, visits the blog with her new release, 'Paper Kisses', #BDSM #eroticromance

Thank you so much for having me visit today! I’m so excited to share my newest book “Paper Kisses”. This is a story that took over twenty years to write and went through several incarnations before the finished product. It was short story originally titled ”The Love Dance”, turned into a movie script, and then turned back into a novel. The heroine and hero both morphed…and in fact, the only things that never changed were their two friends, CeeCee and Kevin.

About 'Paper Kisses'

When Alannah’s husband tells her she’s boring and he doesn’t want to be married to her anymore she spirals into a world of hurt and confusion. She decides to go back to her hometown in Missouri to figure out where she lost the confident girl she used to be.

Speeding into town, she’s pulled over by her old best friend, Skylar Randall, now the town sheriff. He’s still mad at her for leaving twelve years ago without a word of good-bye. But suddenly Sky isn’t just her high school friend anymore, he’s morphed into a man who goes after what he wants, and he’s just declared he wants her.

But Sky’s private world is one full of bondage and in trying to silence the doubts in her head, he will tie her up as long as it takes for her realize that what she really left behind was faith, hope and whole lot of kisses.


I wanted to explore bondage in this book and wanted to use different scenarios for how Alannah deals with all the emotional upheaval in her life. Sky recognizes in her the problem of never having her brain just relax, of allowing herself to reach ultimate pleasure, and goes about blindfolding and tying her up to achieve that. Even though this is classified as BDSM, it’s really bondage that is front and foremost in Alannah’s eventual transformation.


She felt disoriented and a little uneasy at not being able to see or having the movement of her arms. She was open, totally exposed except for a bit of lace covering her sex. She squirmed even more and tried to get to her knees in an effort to gain some leverage.

            “Stop moving,” he ordered and she obeyed immediately. “Tell me how you feel.”

            “How I feel?” she mimicked sharply. “How do you think I feel? I’m uncomfortable. My wrists are bound, I can’t see. Damn it, Sky-”

            He rolled her over and slapped her ass cheek again. Hard. She gasped and wiggled her bottom, shocked to realize her pussy was beginning to get wet. Being spanked turned her on? What the hell?”

            “That’s not what I asked,” he said calmly. “Shut off what your mind is telling you. How do you feel?”

            “I feel…vulnerable,” she said.

            “Good. What else?”

            When he asked the question, his hand caressed the burning spot where his hand had smacked, creating a blanket of pleasure that smoothed over the pain.

            “I’m…turned on?”

            She hadn’t meant to make it sound like a question but he took it as one and again lifted his hand to spank her. Fire licked her skin and she buckled a little, but as soon as he began caressing the area she calmed down. Holy fire crackers, she did like being spanked!

            “I’m turned on,” she assured, although she was a bit breathless.
