(and I get grandson cuddles)
Hello lovely peeps. It’s always a good day, when I get to visit the awesome Raven, especially on release day. You see, I’m too busy bouncing to mind Raven supplying her grandson with copious amounts of chocolate.
Might send him hyper, but he can bounce with me, and besides, it gave me a chance to interview Catalina Stanhope.
Cat is the female part of the bear shifting triplets Goldie Lockwood ends up being mated to, and the one our Goldie struggled with accepting the most.
“Would you agree with that, Mistress Cat?”
She purses her lips at me, and regards me from under her long eyelashes. I resist the urge to squirm in my seat, or sink to my knees on the floor. Catalina is a formidable presence when she dons her Mistress Cat persona, and I have serious leg envy seeing her mile long legs encased in her red leather pant suit. I’m not into women, but you know, if I were….
“Relax, Doris, and call me Cat. We’re all friends here, and besides, having written our story, you know my secrets, so…” She leaves that sentence unfinished and smiles at me. If it wasn’t for the ever present whip, which seems to be an extension of her hand I would allow myself to be lured into that smile.
“Yes, well, still, I don’t want to be disrespectful, and I didn’t know how much of your story you want me to let slip.” I shuffle my notes on my lap, and jump when Cat reaches across and places her slender manicured fingers on top of mine. They end in long, red tipped, fingernails, which I know can do some damage. As for the stilettos on her boots…I still squirm having written that scene, even though the guy deserved it.
“I can almost see the wheels turning in your head, Doris.” She gives my hand a squeeze, flings one of her long legs over the other, sits back, and smiles again. This time the smile reaches her eyes, and softens her entire demeanour, and I get a glimpse at the Cat she shows only to Goldie.
“I trust you to tease the readers just enough,” she says, and I breathe an audible sigh of relief, which makes her grin deepen.
“Okay, then,” I say, and she leans forward slightly, giving me her undivided attention. “You have quite the reputation around the club. Is that something you cultivated on purpose or is it your natural persona?”
“Well, now, sugar, I wouldn’t be much good as a Mistress, if I couldn’t put the fear of god into the males of this world.” She smiles again, and winks at me. “Besides, as the youngest triplet with two overbearing big ass grizzlies for brothers, I learned very quickly to stand up for myself. Jason might be the Alpha and Jacob might be the biggest of us, but one swift kick to the gonads bring them both down. It does them good to smell the roses once in a while. Besides, men, and my brothers included in that, are just so damn primitive at times. I mean look at the dumb ass way they acted around Goldie. Fortunately our girl has spunk, and for some reason best known to herself she loves the dumb teddy bears.”
Cat smiles as she says that, taking the sting out of her words. Sibling rivalry notwithstanding it’s clear that she loves her brothers dearly and Goldie even more so, if the soft sheen in her eyes, when she talks about her is anything to go by.
“Is it true that you threatened Jacob would be eating his own balls, if he’d saddled you all with an ugly mate?”
Cat bursts out laughing and shrugs her shoulders.
“Yeah, I said that. Though in truth, the mating bond being what it is, it wouldn’t have made any difference had Goldie been ugly. Not that she is. Our girl is beautiful, inside and out, and I’m well aware that she took on a lot with all three of us.”
I nod at that, and I have to ask her.
“How did you feel when it became apparent that Goldie had never been with a woman before?”
Cat grows thoughtful, and she shrugs her shoulders.
“I would be lying, if I said it didn’t worry me, but I had faith that it would all work out. She just had to get to know the real me, and things fell into place. Besides, sugar,” she gives me a heated glance that makes me squirm in my seat again. “There’s nothing quite like another woman to know your way around a female’s body, and I’ve had all sorts of fun teaching her the pleasures to be found without a dick around.”
She winks at me and I have to laugh. She looks downright mischievous like this, and I feel my cheeks heat.
“I know, you made me write those scenes, after all,” I mumble under my breath, and Cat’s carefree laughter rings in my ears.
“And you enjoyed writing them, did you not my author dearest.”
I glance at her and she grins from ear to ear.
“You know fine well, I did, ma’am.”
“From your lips to the readers’ ears, Doris. Now if that is all, I really want to get back to my girl. Those boys have had her to themselves for far too long now.”
She stretches as she gets up, and I have a hard time wrenching my gaze away from the way her breasts strain against the leather of her skin tight suit. Naturally she notices and smirks at me.
“Yeah, you see, Goldie couldn’t take her eyes off of them either. Just goes to show what I firmly believe in.”
I frown and she laughs again.
“What’s that then?” I ask.
“That sexuality is a rather fluid thing, wouldn’t you agree? And as long as all the parties involved are consenting adults, and everyone’s needs are met, your feelings are not wrong.”
I have no answer to that. After all Goldie comes to much the same conclusion in the end. Not sure I could personally cope with three bear shifters, mind you, so I simply smile and nod.
“Thanks for your time, Cat.”
“You’re very welcome, sugar. Now you best pick a nice, juicy excerpt for your readers.”
And with that, Cat ambles off.
I best do as I’m told, and let you have a sneak peek at Cat in action. Enjoy, folks!
Catalina didn't respond. Instead, she helped her across the room into the bathroom where she ordered Goldie to sit on the side of the bath. Goldie thought it wise to do as she was told. After all she now was under the woman’s care, whether she wanted to be or not, and besides a bath sounded heavenly about right now. Everything hurt, and while it was a good ache, it was nonetheless pain she wasn’t used to, and she didn’t particularly fancy hobbling around the place tomorrow. Unbidden her hand strayed to a particularly sore spot on her neck, and her heart beat faster. Master had bitten her there, she remembered now, and it had caused her whole body to light up in arousal so fierce, her clit clenched just remembering it.
Cat noticed of course, and frowned at her. A frown that changed into a curious smile when her gaze fell on the actions of Goldie’s digits.
“Does that hurt?” she asked, and Goldie shook her head and hastily dropped her hand. When Cat stepped closer and traced the bite mark with her long fingernails, need coursed through Goldie’s veins with a speed that took her breath away, and she gulped in air.
“Relax, sweet thing, and answer my question.”
Catalina’s amber gaze connected with hers, and Goldie lost herself in the deep concern she read in the other woman’s eyes. Emotions chased each other across Cat’s irises, and just like her brothers’ eyes, hers, too, took on an eerie glow that should surely be terrifying, but had the opposite effect on Goldie. It served to pull her further under Cat’s spell. The barely functioning rational side of her brain, which she’d seemed to have left behind at the check-in desk to the club last night, did make a brief reappearance. There was something wrong with this. Something she couldn’t put her finger on. Something that should worry her a great deal, because when Cat and her brothers did that, they didn’t look human anymore. Couple that with the strange growling and sniffing they seemed so fond of it, not to mention their penchant for biting her and…
Goldie drew a big massive blank, not least, because Cat chose that moment to step so close that her alluring scent wrapped itself around Goldie. It made it hard to form any coherent thought, as her pussy flooded, and the sexual tension between them skyrocketed.
When Cat bent down and inhaled next to Goldie’s ear, she stopped breathing altogether.
“Answer me, little one, does his bite hurt?” Cat licked Jason’s bite, and Goldie groaned her answer.
“No, it doesn’t. It…”
Heat flooded her cheeks, because she grew ever wetter between her thighs, and there was no way Cat would miss that. Sure enough, Goldie could feel the other woman’s soft lips curl into a smile as she continued to lave, nip, and suck her brother’s mark on Goldie’s skin, until Goldie couldn’t help but fidget against the cool porcelain of the bathtub. If she moved just a little she’d be able to rock herself against the edge and…
Catalina’s claw like fingernails dug into her hips, and stopped that involuntary movement, as she took a mouthful of Goldie’s skin, and bit down.
Goldie gasped, and held perfectly still, as Cat pulled back, allowing her teeth to scrape along Goldie’s skin in much the same way as Jacob had done, before she pulled back with a satisfied smirk.
“Good, we like to bite, as you’ll notice.”
Goldie’s laugh sounded slightly hysterical, even to her own ears, and Catalina’s amusement fled.
“Does that worry you, sub?” she asked, and Goldie shook her head.
“Not exactly. I would prefer you did it where it doesn’t show, and…” She dropped her gaze, embarrassment at her wayward thoughts making her tongue-tied. Catalina cupped her chin and raised her head up until she had no choice but to look at her, and amused affection was written all over the woman’s features. She looked as though she cared, truly cared, for Goldie, and that thought caused an answering glow in Goldie’s chest.
“Don’t stop now, sweet girl. Tell me what’s going on in that pretty head of yours. I can guess, because your body gives you away, but I’d like to hear you say the words.”
Goldie resisted the urge to roll her eyes. Really what was it with them all insisting that she bare her innermost thoughts to them? While there was something incredibly freeing about that, it was also decidedly disconcerting.
“It’s hot,” she finally said, and the approval that lit up the other woman’s eyes meant far too much to her right now. She couldn’t be falling for Catalina, too, could she? Goldie hastily shoved that thought into her do not even go there box in her brain, and offered Cat a hesitant smile instead.
“Now, that wasn’t so hard to admit, was it, sweetie?” Cat asked. “I’ll let you in on a little secret. It’s fucking hot to see those marks on you, and I have every intention to leave my own bite right here.”
Goldie’s heart-rate kicked up into dangerous territory, as Cat traced her fingernails along Goldie’s collar bone, over to the other side, and tapped the fleshy part of her shoulder.
“Right here, though Jacob has been there already, so maybe I’ll do it here.”
She trailed her digits lower, leaving a heated, and bone deep awareness of the other woman on Goldie’s skin, until she circled her breasts. Her fingers pinched each nipple in turn, and sore as they still were from all the earlier attention they had received, the pain shot straight to her clit, and Goldie moaned.
“Yes, right here would be a good place I think. You’re so responsive to nipple stimulation, sweet thing. I’m pretty sure I could make you come from this alone, couldn’t I?”
Catalina didn’t wait for an answer, just dropped to her knees, and Goldie cried out in shocked delight, when the other woman took her breast in her mouth and started to suck on one nipple while she rolled the other between her fingertips.
Shards of delight shot through her system, and she grasped hold of the back of Catalina’s head to keep her there. The mere fact that she let her was not lost on Goldie, and then the other woman bit down hard.
Goldie’s scream echoed around the bathroom, while her body tumbled over the edge into an orgasm so intense she saw stars. When she finally came back down to earth, it was to find Cat between her legs, licking at her pussy as though she’d been starved of sustenance for years. When the last of her aftershocks had abated, Cat raised her head and smiled at her.
“Delicious, my sweet, and now you’re mine, too.”
