The lovely Stardawn Cabot has just released book three of her The Sangrain Tiger’s Tale series. There is some wonderful info below about it. Show her some love for another wonder spanky book. 😀 🙂
This third installment of The Sangrain Tiger’s Tale picks up five years after Silver and Keridwen return to Sangria. Life is going well; their family is growing and thriving, their people are prospering, and Silver and Keridwen have never been happier. There is just one small problem – Keridwen has become almost too complacent and through a series of pranks discovers that she has lost the ability to control her shifts from her adult form to the body of a 10-year old at will. Worse than that, however, she’s forgotten how to be small as the everyday demands of running a kingdom have gotten in the way of Keridwen being her true self. To help Keridwen find her way again, Silver declares that a little vacation back to Earth is warranted. Unfortunately, their vacation is abruptly cut short as Silver and Keridwen’s twin daughters accidentally return to Sangria with only Silver’s mother to protect them. Not knowing where the twins landed, possibly hundreds of miles from their home, Keridwen follows them while Silver returns to the Capital and tries to find them through more traditional means.
Now with the family split, Keridwen’s little problems grow into an almost unfathomable task as she tries not only to find her daughters and reunite with her wife but is also confronted by her past – a past that she not only wants to forget but is ashamed of. Will her past haunt her to the point where she is unable to become the General, preventing her from protecting her people and reuniting with her family, or will life as she knows it forever be shattered?
This story is fantasy, includes a sexually-graphic lesbian relationship, spanking, and elements of age play. If any of these things offend you, please don’t buy this book.
A sneaky peaky:
Silver shook her head as she watched Keridwen play in the water. The Little General had been at it for almost two hours, finding pure delight in the water and the rolling waves. They’d played with most of the things Silver had purchased, including the inflatable beach ball, the Frisbee, and finally the boogie board, which Keridwen was currently experimenting with. They’d seen some older kids run along the water’s edge and ride the board across the wet sand. Keridwen was trying to mimic them and was having a marginal amount of luck. Silver had finally left to her to play and returned to the towels to rest. She was exhausted, and she didn’t know where Keridwen found the energy to continue.
The beach had gotten more crowded as the day wore on. There were many more people both on the sand and in the water, and so Silver didn’t interfere when a small group of children engaged Keridwen. There were two boys and a girl, all around Keridwen ‘age,’ and one of the boys had a boogie board as well. They talked for a while, and then one of the boys took a turn on his boogie board, riding more into a wave then along the shore. He crashed and went into the water, only to pop up a moment later laughing.
The rest of the children and Keridwen joined in in his laughter and seeing that they were having a good time, Silver relaxed. Keridwen had taken to the water like a duck, as she usually did, and after making sure she was feeling secure, Silver wasn’t really worried about her. Deciding to let her play for a while, Silver picked a book out of her bag before getting comfortable and enjoying the sun.
Over the last few years, Silver had rediscovered reading. In Sangria they didn’t have television or even electric lights, so often nights were spent around the fire with a good book. She’d read a lot of Sangrian literature, but also had her own stash which was available to only to those who had knowledge of Earth. Stephen, her brother, would often raid her collection and Aderyn and occasionally Jayson or Seth would as well. As her girls got older, she would make sure they had a library of Earth literature as well. There were good lessons and good stories from both cultures, and she hoped that it would help round out their education as they grew. Turning her attention to her book, Silver managed to let herself get lost in its pages while still keeping an ear and the occasional glance out toward Keridwen.
A good half hour or so passed before Silver looked up and saw Keridwen and her new friends heading her way. “Having fun?” Silver quipped as Keridwen plopped down on the towel next to her.
“Yes, although,” Keridwen paused, looking back to her friends. “I was invited to go get some ice cream.”
“The shop is just down at the end of this block,” the oldest boy spoke up. “We go there all the time.”
“They live here,” Keridwen supplied. “That’s Joey, by the way, his brother, Andrew, and their cousin, Silvia.”
“My name is Silvia too,” Silver smiled. “But everyone calls me Silver.”
“I told her that,” Keridwen informed Silver. “We were hoping we could leave their stuff here with you and we could go. I’ll bring you back something.”
Silver chewed her lip for a moment. “I don’t like the idea of you being out of my sight.”
“It’s not like we’ll be in the water, and it’s just down the street. Please?”
“How about I just go with you?”
“Silver,” Keridwen’s voice dropped. “What about the stuff?”
“The stuff is fine, no one will mess with it, and if they do, who cares?”
“Keridwen, what’s rule number two?” Silver’s voice dropped down into a whisper.
Keridwen’s cheeks reddened, and before Silver knew what was happening, she turned to her new-found friends. “I changed my mind; I don’t feel like ice cream anymore. You can still leave your stuff if you want.”
“You sure?” Joey asked.
“Yes, I forgot ice cream sometimes hurts my stomach. I’ll see you when you get back.”
Silver was quiet for a moment as the boy shrugged and dumped his boogie board down next to Keridwen’s before leaving with the two others. “You didn’t have to do that.”
“Neither did you,” Keridwen huffed, pulling her knees up under her chin as she dripped into her towel. “It was just down the street.”
“I know, but I told you I don’t want you out of my line of sight.”
“I’m going to go back to the water.”
“I think you need to stay up here for a bit.”
“Why? You left me alone a few minutes ago.”
“One, the attitude, and two I think you could use a break. How about a snack? I’m hungry, I bet you are too.”
“I want ice cream.”
“Well, it’s too late for that. I have trail mix or chips, or how about a cupcake? I have some chocolate…”
“I don’t want any of that,” Keridwen cut Silver off.
“Well at least have some water,” Silver pulled out a bottle and opened it for Keridwen. “You’ve been in the water too long without drinking. You’ll get dehydrated.”
Keridwen gave her a hard look before taking the bottle and managing a small slip. She then wrinkled her nose. “It’s not cold. Ice cream would have been cold.”
“You know what? That’s enough. You just earned yourself a time out. Ten minutes, Keridwen. You can sit there and think about your attitude. Drink the water, but no talking.”
Keridwen narrowed her eyes. Planting the bottle down in the sand between them, she turned away from Silver and lay down on her towel. Silver felt the initial surge of annoyance, but after a moment of studying Keridwen’s posture, she felt it just as quickly leave.
Uncharacteristically, Keridwen hadn’t argued with her. She’d simply turned away and seeing the pose made Silver frown. She wondered if maybe she’d gone too far. Keridwen seemed almost excited when they agreed that Silver was going to be tougher on her, but now with the attitude, she was confused.
Finally giving out a long sigh, she reached out and put at hand on Keridwen’s lower back. “Am I being a total jack ass?”
Keridwen turned her head back toward Silver. She wrinkled her brow, but slowly nodded her head. “Yes.”
Silver chuckled; well at least I know you’re still not able to lie to me. “If you want to hurry up, you can probably catch up with them.”
“What about rule number two?”
“Promise you’ll go get the ice cream and come right back?”
“And you’ll bring me back something chocolate?”
Silver grabbed her wallet and handed over a $10. “Hurry up. It’s hot, and that ice cream is going to melt fast.”
“Okay,” Keridwen smiled, jumping up and kissing Silver on the cheek. “I know you are trying to step up. I appreciate it, even if you need to relax a bit.”
