Special Midweek Promo with Angelica Dawson

Yesterday got a bit hectic in the house, so I am a day late (actually a week late, but all's forgiven!), but here I am finally hosting Angelica Dawson, lovely author of Blue Moon House, and contributing author to Campus Sexploits 3!! Take it away, Angelica!

Blue Moon House excerpt
“MmmmMmmaximum.” Julia wept loudly. Blood was trickling down her back and over her
breasts where the cruel whip had broken her skin. She burned everywhere, stinging from her first
beating at his hand, and then adding the salt of sweat, the blood. Sagging against the chains that held
her mostly upright, she sobbed bitterly.
The whip was gone and Harry was there, releasing her wrists. “Terrance. Did you have to be so
The tall, icy man softened for the first time Julia had seen. “Everyone has a limit. If she would
join us, I would know hers. Now, I do. Take care of her, Harrold.”
Julia’s mind logged the response but couldn’t think about it in the midst of the pain. Harry was
licking her wounds, his saliva closing them faster but burning them further. Julia screamed again.
“Hush,” Harry said with concern, his voice soft and familiar, a raft for Julia to grasp in the sea of
pain. There was a stabbing in her leg.
“That will help. You will sleep soon, Julia. In the morning, the pain will be much less, I
promise,” Terrance told her, pulling her hair off her face and mopping it with a cool cloth.
“I-I’m not...” She didn’t know how to ask if she was unworthy.
“You impress me, Julia. I look forward to having centuries to get to know more of you, other
Julia flinched, crying out and hugging Harry. Terrance laughed and the difference between that
and the cold demands, the hard mocking he’d given her all night made her turn back.
“Never pain, Julia. I found that limit.”
She relaxed, the drug they’d given her taking effect. It didn’t make her dopey, but she was
exhausted. Terrance had followed only hours after Lynn. Julia hoped that was the end of the women.
All had known of her distaste, but only Jocelyn had pushed it, knowing she could be pushed. Lynn had
been more like Sophia.
When she woke on the large bed, she did ache, but all the burning was gone. She saw welts all
over her body, but smelled a tincture that had been applied to speed her healing. It was working. She
rose slowly though, wincing at times, to find herself breakfast.
For the first time, Julia wondered just how many vampires there were in Blue Moon House. Was
she near the end yet? She hadn’t changed her mind. Her family lived far away and she only saw them
on holidays. She had a few friends she would miss keenly, but they would be fine without her. No one
depended on her, except possibly her co-workers, and she’d been meaning to walk out on them for
months now.
“Whoa. Are you okay?” one of the other submissives, a man of middle years, asked.
Julia nodded, sitting very gingerly in the dining room. Pain spread across her bottom and then
receded a little after she had sat a moment. Sucking through her teeth, she pushed it away. Then she
lifted her juice.
“Who?” he asked. It wasn’t a common question. Masters were usually kept private.
“Terrance,” Julia’s voice was a croak.
The man’s mouth hung open. “But Terrance never... I mean, I hope you feel better soon.”
Julia grabbed at his elbow. “You belong to Terrance?” she asked.
“I did,” the man answered. “He was too soft, too gentle for what I wanted. He sent me to Will.”
The man’s grin gleamed. “I’m very happy now.”
Julia stiffened and regretted it when her bruises panged. Will, she was sure, would have her
next. “I see. Have you had other Masters?”
“Not in the House. I’m Justin.” He offered his hand and Julia took it. “You’re older than most,”
he observed.
She chuckled. “So are you.” Most of the submissives were in their mid-twenties. Both Julia and
Justin were well over thirty. Julia was only a year and a bit from forty. It had posed problems when she
started in the BDSM community - no one had wanted her. Blue Moon House, Harry specifically, had
not turned her away after one session.
“Touché. Why Terrance?” he asked.
Julia shook her head, sure she couldn’t tell him, unsure if she was even allowed.
“Who is your Master normally?” Justin asked.
Julia’s eyes went soft. “Harry.”
Justin smiled. “I’ve often wished he took men. Not that I’m not happy with Will. I thought about
it most when I was with Terrance,” he admitted.
Julia simply nodded. She ate slowly, relishing the nourishment, the fluids. Her body felt every
year of thirty-eight today. The spare flesh had been kind to her in the beginning, cushioning blows so
they stung but didn’t bruise. She’d lost weight, though not a lot, since coming here and her joints ached
in a way they hadn’t a year or two ago.
She chuckled to herself as Justin rose. He quirked an eyebrow and she shook her
head. “Nothing.” She’d just been thinking how little she’d miss those aches when she was a vampire.
