Yes, I am still alive…

Yes, I am alive and yes, I am still writing. Lots of stuff happening in the ol’ personal life, but it’s starting to calm down now and I’m looking forward to finding out what the swing of my new normal is going to be like.

This blog has fallen so far out of date that it’s going to take a miracle to bring it current. Good thing for both of us that I’m so stubborn. It’ll get there eventually, but for now there are a ton of new things going on that you should know about. Before I start, however, take a look at the top of this page at that line of tabs marked: Home, About Me, My Blog, My Books, and… Newsletter. See that tab? Now, I know what you’re thinking. Not another newsletter. This one is different, I promise. I swear I will only use my authoring newsletter powers for good. Or whenever I’m about to release a new story and there’s a corresponding giveaway that you might want to get in on. So, before you go any further, click on that tab and subscribe to my newsletter. Not do subscribers get a heads-up whenever one of my books gets published, but they are also automatically entered to win in any of my personal blog giveaways.

“What an incentive!” you cry.

Cools beans!! Go. Click on the tab. You know you want to. No, no. We’ll wait.

Back already? Awesome sauce! So, onto what’s new and interesting in my world…

First, yes, there will be a Masters of the Castle book released this year. Second, I am head over heels in love with my current WIP, a fun and funny sci-fi that has progressed far enough for me to send design pics to my cover artist. I am so excited to see what she comes up with! I’m not yet ready to post info on it yet, but if you’re curious, check back here next week. Sneak-A-Peek Tuesdays are about to become a thing here at the Bad Girl’s Corner.

Can’t wait, huh? Well, you are in luck, because an author friend of mine has just published her latest book! What could be more irresistible than a hot and sexy story about a female submissive being brought to heel via the whims of a her dominant alien lover? If you just said “Two dominant alien lovers,” then we are peas in a pod.

The Renegade’s Reward by USA Bestselling author Maddie Taylor has just been released and there is zero waiting required to enjoy this red-hot spanking menage!

Captured by space pirates and held for ransom, her time has run out. Moments from being sold at auction, rescue comes in the form of two smoking hot alien heroes.


Devastated by tragedy, they left everything behind.

Now, they will fight any foe, take any risk, for a price. 

Hired to rescue a rich man’s daughter, mercenaries Jaylin and Malik Sin-Naysir, are captivated by the auburn haired, green-eyed innocent they are duty-bound to protect. Although determined to bring her home untouched, their desire for her is intense, the connection undeniable. Could it be she has the power to heal their wounded hearts?

Daniella Alltryp lives in the lap of luxury, but under the thumb of her dictatorial father her life is a cold, isolated existence. That ends in two weeks when she turns twenty-five and gains control of her trust fund. She’s counting the minutes until she’s free!

Her father has other plans, including an arranged marriage to an alien prince, using her to further line his pockets. Daniella will have none of it.  While returning home to confront him, she is captured by space pirates and held for ransom.  Except time has run out, and her tight-fisted father refuses to pay.  Moments from being sold at auction, rescue comes in the form of two gorgeous aliens.

Tall, powerful, and innately dominant, both men make her heart melt and her panties damp.  Neither has trouble demanding what they want from her, or holding her bare backside accountable for any mischief she makes.  But they aren’t what they seem. Secrets are revealed as their deception unravels.   Can Dani forgive their betrayal and take a chance on loving them both?   And, can Malik and Jaylin move on from the tragedy in their past to finally claim their reward, and make Dani their own?


Publisher note:   The Renegades’ Reward is a stand-alone erotic romance novel that contains sexual scenes and spanking. If this subject matter offends you, please don’t buy this book.



“Daniella!” Jaylin’s roar eclipsed the pounding of his boots and all the alarms combined. “What the fuck have you done to my ship?”

“Does it matter, right now? We’re on fire,” she screeched.

But his question, apparently rhetorical, didn’t require an answer. His hands encircled her waist and he lifted her, bodily moving her out of his way. Then he hit a yellow button on the wall which made the lights dim and the console blink off. Next, he bent and retrieved a fire extinguisher from a low cupboard nearby—one she hadn’t seen. He aimed it at the console, and, after dispensing a cloud of an orange powdery substance, the fire was out.

For a moment, he stood still, his shoulders back, and his spine rigid as if forged in steel.

“You better run and hide if you know what’s good for you,” Malik whispered in her ear.

She jumped, not having heard him come up in the commotion. Taking his advice, she whirled, following a direct path to the lift. The only trouble, Jaylin had finished perusing the mess she’d made. His glare hit her like daggers piercing her skin. With a sudden change of plans, she veered right, toward the ladder.

Four feet from the round hole in the floor, and ready to dive head first through it, his roar stopped her in her tracks.

“Don’t you dare take another step,” he bellowed.

She chanced a glance back and saw his utterly livid face, eyes glittering with fury, nostrils flared. His mouth a thin slash in his bearded face—something new from the day before—and his jaw was held so tight she thought it might break.

“I’m so sorry,” she whispered.

His hand came up, palm out. Wisely, she remained silent.

When he spoke again, long moments later, his voice held an icy chill. “I’m too furious to even ask what the hell you were doing up here in the middle of the night. But it doesn’t matter. There is no excuse for this.” He swept his arm toward the destruction.


“Silence,” he ordered tersely. “This cannot go unpunished.”

She sucked in a ragged breath, and nodded. Whatever he decreed: keelhauled, boiled in oil, strung up by her toes, she deserved. His sentence, however, stunned her.

“Malik, take her downstairs, put her in her room, and lock the door. And, before you leave her to think about what she’s done, that she may not have merely crippled the ship with this stunt, but could have very well stranded us in the middle of nowhere vulnerable to whatever lowlife parasites might happen across our path—”

“Jaylin, please let me explain,” she cried in desperation, but he continued as if she hadn’t spoken.

“Spank her mischievous little ass, and make every swat count. Fifty should do for a start.”

“Fifty!” she squealed at the same time Malik shouted, “Spank Dani?”

Then, they replied in unison, “No way!”

He ignored them both and went right on issuing orders. “Once you’re done, send her to a corner to wait for me. I’ll join you to give her the rest when I get this cleaned up and fix whatever components she has fried. And,” he added further, “I want her hands on her head, her spanked ass on display when I walk in.”

About the Author

A USA Today and #1 international bestselling author, Maddie is a lifelong reader who became a romance junkie as a teen with her first romance novel, The Wolf and the Dove by Kathleen Woodiwiss. From then on, she was hooked, and gobbled up everything she could get her hands on, whether contemporary, historical, paranormal, or sci-fi. If there was romance to be found between a strong alpha male, and a sassy, adventurous and oft-times defiant yet loving woman, Maddie was all over it. As an author, she stays true to those themes writing steamy erotic romance, with a side of kink, and adding elements of intrigue, danger, and suspense to her plots.

Maddie started writing as a hobby. Her stories stayed private while she raised a family and worked full-time as a registered nurse. It wasn’t until 2012 that she decided to take the plunge and submit her first book for publication: Captain My Captain. She went on to publish eleven novels the first year.

She’s still juggling writing with her day job. You’ll find her working at her laptop into the wee hours of the morning, or scribbling plot ideas into the notebook she always keeps handy, and working out the details of a scene while floating around in her pool with a lemon drop in hand. Don’t be surprised if you see her pulling over on the side of the road, searching frantically for pen and paper to capture an idea for a scene that popped into her mind, because as Maddie says, her best ideas always come when her hands are full or if there isn’t a pen in a five-mile radius.
