Accidents and Experimentation by Lucy Felthouse

Please welcome a special guest blogger today.... Lucy Felthouse!

Thanks for letting me loose on the blog today, you Romance Writers Behaving Badly!

Today I'm chatting about the ideas behind my latest release from Ravenous Romance, Naughty Delivery. It's a short erotic story with spanking and bondage elements.

When I was thinking about writing the story, I knew I wanted to write BDSM into it, but as I don't write much of that kind of stuff I wanted to start myself off gently. So I came up with the idea of making the characters in the story new to BDSM – then went one step further and made it so their discovery of the kinky sex play was quite accidental! The result was a fun, lighthearted and yet very sexy tale of spanking and bondage. And, perhaps unsurprisingly, the characters loved it!

Without giving too much away, the couple in the story, Sonia and Ben have decided to order some sex toys to spice up things in the bedroom. However, when the parcel turns up, the contents aren't quite what they expected. They decide to try them out anyway and discover an element of sex they hadn't previously experimented with – and they like it!

Here's a little taster of the story for you:

Sonia moved restlessly through the house; cleaning. She hated housework at the best of times, but when she was on tenterhooks like this, the dust certainly didn’t have much to fear.

She was saved from her half-hearted duster-flicking by a knock at the door. Abandoning the cloth with undisguised glee, Sonia rushed to the front door. Unlocking it, she greeted the delivery guy with a maniacal grin. Barely noticing his wary expression, Sonia signed his hand-held machine and closed the door behind him, clutching the box with delight.

Sonia rushed out to the garden.

“Ben! Ben, it’s here!”

Ben looked up from where he’d been weeding the garden, a smile spreading across his face. Sonia’s excitement was catching. Plus, he was just as interested in the contents of the package as she was.

Standing, he followed his girlfriend as she scampered back into the house, retrieved a pair of scissors from the kitchen drawer and made her way upstairs. Ben paused to wash his dirt-encrusted hands in the kitchen before following Sonia to the bedroom.

Upstairs, she was sitting cross-legged on their bed, scissors at the ready. Ben tucked his lanky frame into a mirror image of Sonia’s position, and nodded.

“Go on then,” he said, “open it.”

She didn’t need prompting twice. Slicing away at the tape sealing the box, Sonia was careful not to damage the contents. When it was done, she put the scissors down and waggled her eyebrows and fingers theatrically before folding back the flaps of the box.

Sinking her fingers into the polystyrene packing chips, Sonia resisted the childish temptation to scoop some up and throw them around. She’d only have to tidy them up, and she thought that time would be much better spent enjoying the contents of the parcel.

It was the first time they’d ordered sex toys from the Internet. Actually, it was the first time they’d purchased any sex toys, full stop. Ben and Sonia had always been happy with their sex life, but after reading one too many articles about how much fun vibrators and things were, they’d decided to find out what all the fuss was about.

They’d giggled like naughty schoolchildren as they scoured their website of choice, browsing through all the naughty things available for sale. After gawping wide-eyed and open-mouthed at several scary-looking implements definitely not designed for beginners, they’d navigated back to the more vanilla couples’ toys.

Following some umm-ing and ahh-ing, they made their choices, placed the order and waited. However, things weren’t quite the same after they’d clicked that ‘Confirm Purchase’ button. In the days that followed, their normal routine was punctuated with spontaneous sex. It usually followed a conversation about the various things they’d seen on the website, not to mention the items that were winging their way through the postal system, en route to their house.

Or so they thought.

Naughty Delivery is available now from, Amazon US, Amazon UK, All Romance eBooks, Barnes & Noble and many more.
