Welcome to WIP IT UP WEDNESDAY!  This scene is from our work in progress (with a brand new title), “Barely Survived”.  In this snippet, Daniel wakes Jackie from another dream and tries to redirect her attention.  There’s quite a bit of voyeurism in this book, but it’s been hard to share without giving too much of the plot away.  Needless to say, I've been DYING  to give you a taste and hope you enjoy today’s little morsel!  Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate!


Jackie’s moans were loud and sincere.

“Jesus, wake up.” Daniel softly shook her bare shoulder.

Her head started moving from side to side as she began to wail loudly.  “Please, don’t …”
Daniel gently propped her up against the soft headboard.  “Wake up, baby.  You’re dreaming again.”

Jackie’s golden brown eyes slowly opened and focused on his face.  Suspiciously, she looked around the room trying to confirm where she was.  Palming her heated cheeks, she started to smile.  “Oh my God, I didn’t use to dream this much when I was younger.”

“Was this another nightmare?” Daniel reached over and kissed her gently on the lips.
“Hmm, those lips feel rather warm.  Maybe it was a fever dream you were having.  I wonder if someone needs to have her temperature taken.”

Jackie wiggled her bottom as she inched closer with a sly smile on her face.  “I didn’t know you owned an ear thermometer.”

“We both know where little girls get their temperature taken, so you might want to curb the comedy.”  Daniel started to get out of bed, but Jackie stopped him.  “Do you really think I’m running a fever?”

He shook his head.  “Maybe we just need an activity to take your mind off that dream.  Roll over, please.” Daniel switched on the end table lamp and fumbled through the drawer.
Jackie obediently turned onto her side and faced the door.  Her teddy bear was sitting on the chair, and she fixed her anxious eyes on his furry face.

“There better not be any panties under here.”  Daniel grinned as he raised her baby-doll nightgown to reveal two soft, heavenly globes just waiting for his touch.  “My good girl is going to feel something warm and wet in her crease right now.” He rubbed his lubricated finger up and down the cleft of her bottom finally locating that familiar hot little hole, as the digits on his other hand slowly moved to stroke her moist labia.

“Ahh, Danny.  You’re teasing me.”

"Shh-shh, I’m going to carefully insert the tip of my finger in your snug little fanny.  Can you feel the pressure, my love?” 

“Yes,” she moaned. 

“Mmm, finally you have something real to moan about.”  He smiled and bent to kiss her cheek.  "Do you enjoy having your pretty little pussy lips petted at the same time?  Does that feel good, princess?”

“Yes, it feels wonderful.  But …”

“You want my finger deeper in your ass, don’t you?”


“You know better than that,” he scolded. “If my hands weren’t so busy, I’d spank your beautiful bottom.”

“I’m sorry.  Yes, sir.”

He slid in deeper and rubbed her stiff nub a little faster. 

“May I please come, Danny?” she whined.

“Not until you tell me what you were dreaming about.”

“I can’t, it’s too embarrassing.”  

“My fingers can walk the other way,” he threatened.

“No, don’t stop.  I’ll tell you.”  She was quickly approaching a seismic orgasm, and the last thing she wanted was an interruption.

“You know my favorite spanking from you is over the knee, right?”

“Mmm, hmm – keep talking …”

“After I got into position, the back of a lucite hairbrush made direct contact with my behind.  You smacked the brush over my nightgown at first, but as it rode up – my cheeks were peeking out.  The same area was spanked over and over until the bottom of my bum was cherry red.” She was running out of breath and closed her eyes.

“And then what did I do, Cookie?” His cock was about to explode.

“You slowly inserted the smooth, slippery tip of a thermometer into my tush."
“Your red-hot little bottom had a thermometer poking out of it?”  The stub of his finger remained inside Jackie’s anus as he furiously rounded her hard pebble.

“Jesus, I’m almost there, Danny.  Please don’t stop …”

“What time is it?  Don’t these two ever sleep?”

“That didn’t sound like a nightmare to me.  Jackie definitely missed her calling as an actress.”

They sat for a few minutes in silence with their arms crossed.

“I’m a little disappointed.  It would’ve been fun to watch him take her temperature the old fashioned way.  Don’t you just love how those eyes widen every time he moves his finger deeper into her ass?”

They both laughed and moved closer to the screen.

“Have you seen him spank her yet?  I never seem to be here at the right time.”

“In my opinion, he doesn’t spank her often enough.  And that ‘over the knee’ business with his open hand is absolutely ridiculous.  Jackie, obviously, wants to feel the back of a hairbrush or a good hard paddle on her ass.  Is he waiting for an engraved invitation to come in the mail?”  

They chuckled and continued watching.
Thanks so much for stopping by to see me and, of course, to Ms. Melody for providing us with a place to gather together!  Now please go visit all of the others on this fun hop! ~ shelly

My apologies to Melody Parks for calling this post WHIP IT UP (and having the nerve to post it on a Wednesday)!   AM I INSANE?  I thought it would be fun to share a few recipes before the holidays and couldn't get this post title out of my head. :)  Have you ever asked someone for a recipe, and they wouldn't share it with you?  In my opinion, there is nothing worse.  Here are a few of my favorites that I bake for family and friends this time of year.  Feel free to share!


3 c flour
2 c sugar
½ c cocoa
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
2 tbs. white vinegar
2 tsp. vanilla
2 c water
1 c oil (I use canola or a blend of vegetable oils)

Sift dry ingredients and then add liquids.  Mix together with a paddle attachment, if you have a choice.  Pour into 2 – 8 inch pans for a layer cake or a 9 x 13 that you either greased or lined with parchment paper.  Bake for 35 to 40 minutes in a pre-heated oven at 350 degrees.  I usually start checking with a toothpick at 35 minutes.  You want it clean, but crumbs are acceptable – wet batter on the toothpick is not.  Seriously, that’s it.
Notice - there are no eggs in this recipe.  But the oil and vinegar combination creates a delicious, moist cake.  You can use dark cocoa or regular.  I usually use regular, but I have had requests for dark.  Basically, they taste the same – the difference is in the color.  Cool and serve.  It freezes well, too.  It’s good as a stand-alone, but I’ve also used it in my chocolate-kahlua trifle when I didn’t have brownies available.  Seriously, everyone should have brownies or chocolate cake in their freezer, just in case of an emergency.
This cake really doesn’t need frosting – but I have used chocolate, cream cheese or German chocolate.  I prefer chocolate.  This one calls for melted butter, so it will be soft.  Everything doesn’t have to be hard to be delicious! :)


1 stick of unsalted butter
2/3 c cocoa
3 c powdered sugar
1/3 c milk
1 tsp. vanilla
Melt butter and alternate powdered sugar, milk and cocoa.  Stir in vanilla.  Sometimes I add more cocoa to make the frosting darker, but remember, that will cause it to dry it out a little more.  So, adjust to your own taste.  If you have the choice, whip with a wire whisk attachment.  It will be creamier.
Yields – 2 cups of frosting. 


1 9 x 13 chocolate cake
2 small pkgs. instant chocolate pudding mix
2 large tubs of whipped topping 
1 cup of Kahlua
4 cups of milk (you can add less for a thicker pudding layer)
1 pkg. of Heath Bar Bits (or smash up about 6 bars)
I chocolate candy bar

You can use chocolate cake or brownies in this recipe.  Prepare pudding as directed on the box, but if you are adding Kahlua (and I highly recommend that you do) then you will need to cut back on at least one cup of milk.  Start with 2 cups of milk and 1 cup of Kahlua before making the decision to add more milk to the mix.  If you put this together a day ahead, it will thicken - so keep that in mind.

This is really a beautiful presentation when prepared in a large glass bowl, but I have also put together mini versions in martini glasses.  Start with chunks of cake or brownies, spread a layer of pudding, sprinkle a handful of candy bits and lather on the whipped topping.  Repeat the process until you finish with a layer of whipped topping and sprinkle the candy bits as decoration.  You can also shave a chocolate bar with a potato peeler for curls on the top.

It is a serious Christmas Eve crowd pleaser!!  


1 lb. unsalted butter
1 lb. plus 12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
6 oz. bitter chocolate
6 extra large eggs
2 T pure vanilla extract
2 ¼ c sugar
1 ¼ c flour
1 T baking powder
1 tsp. salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Line a 12 x 18 x 1 baking sheet with parchment paper (if you make half of this recipe, it fits nicely in a 9 x 13 pan)

Melt butter, 1 lb. chocolate chips and bitter chocolate.  Cool to room temperature.  In large bowl, mix together eggs, vanilla and sugar.  Stir the chocolate mixture into the egg mixture.  In medium bowl, sift 1 cup of flour, baking powder and salt. Mix everything together.  Add ¼ cup of flour and 12 oz. of chocolate chips to chocolate mixture.  Pour into pan and bake 20 minutes, then tap pan against the rack to let any air out.  Bake 15 minutes more – don’t over bake.  Cool until chilled (overnight) then cut when cold.

It’s more work than a box brownie, but so worth it!


3 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking soda
2/3 c water
2 cups canned pumpkin
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp. ground cloves
1 tsp. nutmeg
3 cups white sugar
1 cup oil
4 eggs

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Cream sugar and oil then add eggs followed by water.  Mix all dry ingredients together.  Slowly add dry ingredients to wet mixture and alternate with canned pumpkin.  Grease and flour 2 standard size bread pans.  Bake one hour or until toothpick comes out clean.

I have two sons.  One likes this in the form of a bread that he can slice and slather with cream cheese.  The other prefers that I make muffins with the batter (use an ice cream scoop to measure batter for a good-size muffin).  Either way, it is a delicious and easy recipe.  In case you decide to go for the muffins, I have a favorite cream cheese frosting to smooth over the top.


2 pkg. cream cheese (softened)
2 pkg. butter (softened)
1 2 lb bag of powdered sugar
4 tsp. clear vanilla

Blend cream cheese, butter and vanilla in mixer (use your wire whisk attachment if you have an industrial mixer) then slowly add sugar.  This is a very soft frosting, so it needs to be refrigerated for several hours to take it to a spreading consistency.  It freezes well and is also delicious on the chocolate cake.  Make sure you soften the butter and cream cheese so that you don't have a lumpy frosting.  The purpose of the clear vanilla is to keep the frosting white, but sometimes I use real vanilla and no one ever complains.  I once had a comment that you could eat this frosting on cardboard.  It doesn't take much to make me happy. :)   


Last, but certainly not least, I'm sharing the recipe for my homemade chocolate chip cookies.  Go ahead and laugh - but people seem to really like this recipe, and it is a little different from what you've seen on the bag of chocolate chips.   Here's the secret:  I add an additional 1/4 cup of flour and use BOTH baking powder and baking soda.  I prepare the dough a day in advance - and roll into balls before baking.

2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 cup shortening
3/4 c white sugar
3/4 c packed dark brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 extra large eggs
12 oz. pkg. semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Beat shortening, sugars and vanilla until creamy.  Add eggs and finally combine flour mixture.  Stir in chocolate chips and roll into uniform balls.  Bake on parchment paper until golden brown on top.  In case you're interested - I roll a heaping tablespoon of batter.  I happen to like a large cookie. :)

Note:  Most people prefer to bake cookies with butter, but (IMHO) butter just isn't better in this case.   Naturally, these are best right out of the oven! 

Enjoy ~ shelly :)

Welcome to WIP IT UP WEDNESDAY!  If you like reading a work in progress, you have come to the right place!  This scene is from our WIP, “The Sail of Their Lives”, and the title is due to change any day!  In the meantime, here’s a snippet of Jackie and Daniel.  I don’t think much background is needed for this one. :)


“Would my Cookie like to splash around in the hot tub?

Her eyes shined.  “You always know how to change my channel.”

“Be a good girl and put your swimsuit on." He spun her around and applied a swift, loving palm to her bottom.

Jackie excitedly ran up the steps to undress while Daniel opened the afternoon mail.  Minutes later, he walked through the sliding glass door and couldn’t believe his eyes.  With legs bent and spread, Jackie had positioned herself in front of the spraying jets while holding on to the sides of the tub. 

“Jacqueline Anne Bonerati, stop that this instant!” he shouted approaching the spa.

“Oops.  I thought it would take you longer to change out of your clothes.  Why are you still dressed in a shirt and tie?” Jackie’s head turned, but her body remained pressed to the wall.

He rolled up the sleeves on his white cotton shirt.  “If you don’t move away from there, you’re going to be a very sorry little girl.”

“Come on, you’re no fun.” She threw her head back and closed her eyes as her pussy thrummed.

“Don’t test me, Jackie.  I’m not in the mood for your shenanigans today,” he wagged his finger and warned in a stern tone.

She wiggled and waved her bottom.  The powerful underwater spray pulsed forward onto her eager, shaved pussy.  Repositioning herself closer to the jets, she made the mistake of moaning as her excitement mounted.  

“I’ll show you how much fun I can be, young lady.” Reaching around Jackie's waist, he pulled her off the wall effortlessly and carried her dripping wet body, with arms and legs flying, over to a nearby lounge chair.

She stood beside him and shrugged.  “You asked if I wanted to splash around in the tub.”

“Do you remember me warning you about pleasuring yourself?”

Her eyes shot upward as she touched her chin with one finger, the perfect image of a child trying to ponder.  “I think so,” she admitted with a giggle.

He nodded.  “Now we’re heading in the right direction.  What did I say would happen the next time you were caught with wandering fingers?”

“But my fingers weren’t wandering,” she brazenly teased while wiggling the digits on both hands.  

“This is your last chance to answer before I remove my belt.”  As he reached to unbuckle the metal, Jackie cleared her throat and dropped her head.  Daniel watched her face gradually redden with heat and loved every minute. 
“I would be spanked.” Her voice was soft and humble.

She was immediately taken by the hand and escorted over to the corner by the sliding glass door.  “Place your nose and hands against this cement wall and push your bum out.” 

She looked at him over her shoulder with pleading eyes.


As she quickly complied, he roughly pulled the bottom of her one-piece bathing suit toward the center and wedged it tightly into her cleft.  Making sure she was properly leaning against the wall, he promptly landed a loud, hard smack to both wet, bare cheeks.  “You will stand in this corner with your drenched bathing suit nestled into the crack of your bottom until I say otherwise.  Do you understand, Jackie Anne?” he asked while creating one more solid handprint on each vibrant, moist mound.

“Yes, sir,” she whimpered respectfully.

“You are not to move for fifteen minutes.”  He turned and walked to the other side of the porch to admire his girlfriend’s beautiful reddened ass from a distance.  “Your hot tub privileges are suspended until further notice.”  

She whined and tried to reach back to reposition her suit.

“If I see your hands move off that wall one more time, my disobedient little girl is going to be sleeping on her tummy tonight due to a flat-backed hairbrush making repeated contact with her glowing backside.  Have I made myself clear?”

She nodded and shuffled from one foot to the other.

“Be still, young lady and answer me properly.”

“Yes, sir,” she mumbled.

His cock swelled.
