The Arcos/Connelly Family Tree

Two of my paranormal romance book series are connected through family bloodlines. While the Beneath the Shadows of Evil Series has one book built upon another, the Connelly Witch Series doesn’t require the reader to read one book before the next. Neither series is dependent upon the other either, but for those who have not read Beneath the Shadows of Evil and haven’t met the character who lived long ago, I have detailed the family’s lineage. The magic that began with a wild Gypsy and her husband’s demented sister still flows through the veins of those who have come after them. The blood ties are strong, and the new family’s oath to protect mankind is even stronger. If your interest is piqued and you decide to look into the Beneath the Shadows of Evil Series, then I would advise avoiding the family tree because it contains spoilers.   Connelly and Arcos […]

My Author Interview on Timeless Quills & Giveaway of Signed Copy of Elizabeth’s Destiny

Author Interview: Jolynn Raymond on Timeless Quills Tell us about your book(s)! My latest romance release is a series that is a sequel to my paranormal historical romance series Beneath the Shadows of Evil. The new series is set in modern times, and follows a family of witches named the Connelly’s who are decedents of the people in the historical series. The title of the series is The Connelly Witches, and the books are stand alone paranormal novels that focus on a different member of the family and the trials and tribulations their witchcraft and their vow to protect mankind brings them. I am also working on a book that takes place in Victorian times that is a kinky historical novel akin to Lessons of Love and Elizabeth’s Destiny. I must say a word about my journey into non-fiction as well. The book isn’t a romance and it may not […]

Creating Balance and Love in Your Domestic Discipline Relationship 7 comments

The people who are involved in domestic discipline and power exchange relationships will often tell those who question their lifestyle choice that the addition of structure and discipline has brought them much closer. While there will always be naysayers and those who remain skeptical, those of us who live in these types of relationships will undoubtedly insist that it’s true. The act of giving guidance, creating structure, holding someone accountable, seeing to their every need including the need for discipline, creates a special bond. There are no long periods of resentment, unresolved anger, or holding on to things that fester and gnaw at a relationship. Issues arise, they are handled in a way that both people find not only acceptable, but desirable, and the problem is laid to rest. Do DD couples argue? Actually no, my wife and I don’t. I give her a stern talking to in conjunction with any […]

My Thankful Thoughts

Before the rush of relatives, the stress of juggling two families, and the inevitable dying for a nap after dinner but need to stay awake because we have company, I want to take a moment to reflect on those things I am thankful for. My wife. Without Beauty life would be lonely and dull. I can stand on my own two feet and face the world head on alone, but I never want to have to again. I am thankful for her love, devotion, intelligence, humor, beauty, companionship, compassion, submission, and ability to add serenity and comfort to my life. The ring on her finger symbolizes our union, the collar on her neck symbolizes our owning of each other. Never does a day go by that I would want her to be without either, and never a day goes by that I wouldn’t want her to be part of me. […]

Did Someone Say Anal? 4 comments

Did Someone Say Anal? It seems that the demand for information about play that includes anything anal is quickly growing. Anal sex and all things related to anal play is the last frontier for some and the oh so naughty addition of something kind of kinky for others. Regardless of the why, the hunger for facts is out there and so I will discuss the types of anal play and toys. This article will be written from a woman’s point of view and feeling. I don’t know much about the whole stimulating the prostate. Other than that aspect, I would think the basics still apply. Safety first: Make sure whatever you are deciding to use to insert into the anus has a flanged end. If something slips all the way inside, it can be very hard to get it back out without the aide of medical help. I prefer a […]
