It's Release Day for Vanished Pride!

Vanished Pride is here... finally readers will see just how Paige -the sin sister brimming with Pride- becomes mated and fulfills her part of the legacy. I've chosen one of my favorite excerpts to share today. It's the moment in the book when Donovan allows himself to be who he truly is... which also happens to be just what Paige needs. They'd both been fighting themselves until Donovan accepts the only way to claim his mate is to take her in hand.

Spanking plays a large role in this book. For generations, Donovan's family has practiced Domestic Discipline. Though it may appear Paige disagrees with the practice in the beginning, she discovers the freedom it gives her as their Acclimation progresses.

Seven sisters are entwined in a legacy larger than ever expected. One by one, they’ll find their mates from the Valendite Breed, a group of near-immortal men, and secure their place in history. The trouble now is Paige has too much pride to go down easily. When confronted by her mate, she convinces him to wait.

Donovan agrees to Paige’s plan until things around him start to go wrong. He’s losing his concentration, making mistakes on critical missions for the Terrorist Elimination Unit (TEU), and now he’s assigned as Paige’s bodyguard. Donovan’s only weakness is his need for a mate to carry on the Breed. Now that he’s found Paige, the time has come for him to claim his mate. Taking Paige in hand might be the only choice he has as forces continue to mount against the Breed. Their Pronouncement will need to be sooner rather than later.

“What do you think you’re doing?” Paige shrieked as she kicked out her feet and grabbed onto Donovan to gain balance. Shock was an understatement at how he was treating her. He’d just been so sweet and now this. What was he thinking?
With her torso dangling down from his lap, her legs hanging off the other side and his arm banded across her back, Paige was held firmly in place. She attempted to get loose from his hold, but to no avail. She was completely at his mercy and that just pissed her off. How dare he do this! He still hadn’t spoken and her anger was steadily building.
“Donovan, please, what are you doing to me?”
“We’re trying things my way, Principessa.” Donovan’s voice frightened her, but then a flush rushed over her skin as he ran his hand under her skirt. Cool air nipped at her skin as he pushed her skirt around her waist and bared her tiny scrap of a thong.
Donovan rubbed along the cheeks of her ass and, as if that wasn’t enough humiliation, wedged his hand between her thighs. His fingers deftly found Paige’s small bundle of nerves and a shiver rippled through her body. Her clit grew engorged, now on fire. The blood rushed to it from everywhere else in her body and she couldn’t think straight. Her concentration was shot as everything in her focused on her mate.
Donovan continued his exploration as Paige settled into a gentle rocking rhythm. His fingers drew through her folds. He moved them faster and faster in a firm motion, bringing Paige so close to orgasm. She was dizzy and lightheaded, unbidden moans escaping from her throat. Her body knew this was her mate touching her, and melted under his touch. It had never reacted this way before.
“We’re going to do this Claiming on my terms now, Paige. Your way didn’t work so well. So right now is your chance to say stop. It’s now, or never again,” Donovan spoke through the waves of pleasure his fingers were orchestrating. Paige shook her head frantically, not wanting him to stop her from reaching these heights.
Then in one life-altering moment, he stopped stroking and his palm struck her bottom and sent flames flying. She knew he held back because the magnitude of his strength was too great but Goddess help her, that slap hurt. She yelped and threw out a few choice expletives, but Donovan seemed to ignore her. He softly rubbed her cheeks again, this time bringing the sting front and center to find the throbbing in her clit. Then the second slap came across the opposite cheek and a third before she had a chance to recover.
Paige’s body was quivering. She couldn’t think beyond the vibrations, the feeling of his hand on her skin. As she gave herself over and relaxed into him, Paige raised her bottom towards his palm, instinctively seeking more. Donovan’s muscular arm lay across her back to hold her tightly against his lap. His hard cock pressed into her belly and seemed to be calling to her. She wanted to know how it would feel inside her.
Thoughts of his cock receded into the back of her consciousness as Donovan’s hand continued to deliver her spanking. His slaps rained down, burning and delighting her at the same time. She was crying and yet she couldn’t help but reach for more.
“You need to consider others, Princess, to move outside yourself and see the bigger picture. For the final five, focus only on the sensations I provide. I know you can do this,” Donovan soothed her with his words. The gentle stroking of his hand made her feel cherished.
“I-I can’t. It’s m-my soul sin. I-I can’t let it g-go,” Paige whined through the tears and tremors rocking her body. She felt helpless, exposed and vulnerable. She wasn’t accustomed to any of these emotions.
“Mind over matter. You can do this and I promise it will help.”
“H-how do you kn-know?” Paige spoke through her tears.
“Because I’m your mate; and it’s determined that I’m to know what’s best for you.” Donovan’s confidence as he spoke reassured a part of Paige that still held doubt. She shuddered at his words, too many emotions racing through her mind to think straight, and then did as he said, finding comfort in his gentle touches. Donovan’s hand slapping down on her bottom with such authority pulled her into the spell he wove.
Paige floated in a place where she was free from everything, until she felt a rhythmic pulsing in her clit. His hand had moved to her delicate little bud once more. As her pussy clenched tight, Paige screamed out through an orgasm she hadn’t expected. By the looks of Donovan, he didn’t expect it either.
After a few moments of silence, Donovan sat Paige up on his lap, brushed her sweaty hair from her forehead and kissed her there. “Well done,” Donovan grinned at Paige and suddenly she felt immensely shy. When she tried to move away, she was startled by the soreness on her bottom.
Donovan wasn’t letting her move; he held her hip with one large hand and her chin with the other. “You enjoyed that. Goddess, you couldn’t be more perfect for me.” His eyes were shining, large and bright, and his smile was radiating appreciation and love. Gone was that terrible angry face he’d had when he first put her across his knee.
The heat inside her wasn’t going away, even after her climax and the tenderness of her bottom. In fact, as he continued touching her body, her need was growing more intense. She wanted to touch him too. She tentatively stroked his beard, the stubble tickling her fingers.
Donovan moved his hands to frame her face and drew her head up to meet his eyes. He brushed a sweet kiss against her lips before speaking again, his voice now growing huskier with desire. “It’s time.”
Paige knew exactly what he meant. She nodded.
