Midwinter Night’s Delights — Hot Historical/Fantasy Romance
by Kelli A. Wilkins www.amazon.com/author/kelliwilkins
Today I’m highlighting the second book in my Naughty Nobles trilogy, Midwinter Night’s Delights. The series includes Midsummer Night’s Delights, Midwinter Night’s Delights, and Ultimate Night’s Delights. Although the books are connected, each stands alone as an individual read.
In a previous blog, I wrote about Midsummer Night’s Delights. This novella introduced readers to repressed newlyweds, Julian and Annabelle. They are strangers trapped in an arranged, sexless marriage. To loosen them up, Julian’s father sends them to the Marquis of Demby’s estate to attend a Midsummer Ball. (And this type of ball isn’t for dancing!)
The second book in the series, Midwinter Night’s Delights, picks up six months after the last story and follows the continuing sexual adventures of Annabelle and Julian. (And yes, this novella is just as hot—if not hotter— than the first one.)
In the sequel, we discover that Annabelle and Julian have taken what they’ve learned and gone wild. Ever since the Midsummer Ball, they have been overindulging in all sorts of lewd activities. Instead of being shy and repressed, they are more than eager to give in to their desires whenever (and wherever) the mood strikes—even if it’s at a formal dinner party. Needless to say, Julian’s father sends them back to Vincent’s estate to be disciplined and learn self-control.
Although they have been invited to the Midwinter Ball, there’s a catch. Before Sabrina and Vincent allow them to participate, they need to learn how to control their insatiable appetites and undergo certain “punishments” along the way.
So, how did this sequel come about? At the end of Midsummer, I left the door open to a follow-up story, hoping that readers would want more. And they did! Readers and reviewers were interested in learning more about the characters and seeing what other erotic escapades awaited them.
Some people wanted a prequel—a story devoted to how Sabrina and Vincent met and where they learned to play their wicked games. Others wanted a follow-up story to find out what happened to Annabelle and Julian and wondered if they would still play games with Vincent and Sabrina.
This story satisfies both camps. I let Sabrina explain her sexual history and how she became educated in playing naughty games. Julian and Annabelle learn about self-control as they become Vincent and Sabrina’s submissives and take their “punishments” in stride.
Midwinter Night’s Delights is more intense than the first book. From the outset, readers know that Julian and Annabelle are learning lessons and being disciplined—but it’s all for their own good. I even sprinkled in some BDSM throughout the story to make things very interesting.
And what about the third book? At the end of Midwinter, I saw the potential for another, final, chapter in the saga. I’ll share more about Ultimate Night’s Delights in another blog, so stay tuned.
Here’s the summary and a spicy excerpt:
Midwinter Night’s Delights
Julian and Annabelle are back for another naughty ball!
The Marquis of Demby’s Midsummer Ball transformed Julian and Annabelle forever. No longer shy about satisfying their sexual urges, the young newlyweds give in to their wanton desires whenever—and wherever—the mood strikes. Anything goes in their open marriage, and they’re not ashamed to share their passions with others.
But everything changes when they are sent to Vincent and Sabrina’s estate to be disciplined. Before they can participate in the Midwinter Ball, they must learn self-control. Carnal punishments and sensual lessons are just a few of the erotic surprises awaiting them… before the ball even begins!
Bonus! This e-book includes a sneak peek at the third book in the Naughty Nobles trilogy: ULTIMATE NIGHT’S DELIGHTS.
A spicy excerpt:
“Wake up, Julian.” Someone was touching his bare chest. He grunted. Was it that horrible woman again? He couldn’t bear to hump her one more time. His poor penis felt like it was worn down to a nub. Someone squeezed his balls, and he snapped awake. Sabrina stood over him holding a bed tray.
“Good morning. Did you sleep well?”
“Yes, I think so. The servant washed me and tied me to the bed. Then I fell asleep. I was exhausted after servicing your dinner guest.”
“Good. She had nice things to say about you. She said you were a good screw, and she wanted to have more time with you, but we had to refuse. Annabelle got an excellent report, too. The man she was with wanted to buy her.”
His heart skipped a beat, and he sat up, his arms jerking against his restraints. “Buy her? You didn’t. You wouldn’t. Where is she? I want to see her, now. She’s my wife.”
“Don’t worry.” Sabrina dismissed his concern with a wave of her hand and uncovered his tray. “She’s with Vincent. Why are you pretending to be concerned about her?”
“I’m not pretending,” he argued. “She’s my wife. I have a duty to protect her. I love her.”
Sabrina tittered. “Is that why you screwed her in public? To show the world how much you love her? Did you pass her around to the gardener to show him how eager she is, or because you like to watch?”
“It wasn’t like that. We were having playing games. You and Vincent do it.”
“Yes, but our games are not reckless, they’re controlled.” She unfastened one of his arms and handed him a fork. “Eat while you can. You’ll need your endurance for later.”
He ate an egg and a slice of toast before he spoke. “Later? Aren’t the punishments over?”
Sabrina sat on the edge of the bed. “No, not yet. Perhaps this afternoon you will have passed your tests and can be rewarded. But for now, you are still being disciplined. You do seem more docile this morning. Did having Lono’s spike up your ass break you down?”
“No, humping Annabelle with my prick on fire did. Why did you make me do that?”
“You like plowing your wife in front of other people at parties. I thought you’d enjoy it,” she replied, smirking.
“Don’t mock me.” He sipped his tea. Despite Sabrina’s elegant beauty and grace, she had a cold streak running through her.
“It was part of your punishment. Did you learn anything?”
“Yes, that I hated it. Those people talked about us like we were being judged in a horse show. Then we were given away as party favors.” He shook his head. “I had no control over what happened to me, or to Annabelle.”
Sabrina nodded. “Well, that’s a start. You’re learning, Julian. Just be glad it was you with Annabelle on the settee. Annabelle must be a tigress. That man offered a lot of money for her…”
“Stop saying that. She’s my wife. I love her.”
“Then prove it,” she barked. “Stop bending her over for every man you meet while you whack off. Stop asking her to suck cocks that you can’t suck.”
He bowed his head. Sabrina wasn’t one to waste words. She knew how to cut him down to the quick.
“You need to control yourself. You cannot go around taking Annabelle, or anyone else, just because you get hard. Your insatiable urges need to be calmed.”
“I think I am calmed,” he said, glancing at his groin. “My penis is sore from yesterday. I still haven’t climaxed, and my balls are as hard as rocks.”
She reached under the bedclothes and cupped his sac. “Oh my, they are full, aren’t they?”
Sabrina squeezed him, and he pressed his eyes shut. Was she going to torture him, or pleasure him?
