Train With Tess Week Day 2

I’m thrilled to host each day this week Tessa Wanton, author of The Training of Tess and Tickled Pink by Naughty Nights Press. Stop back each day of the week: we have character interviews, a guest post, reviews and giveaways planned for you ;)

Today we have the Blurb and Excerpt from Tickled Pink along with a Giveaway ;)

Tickled Pink

Ellie Cassidy is a super confident and efficient Executive PA with an extremely demanding boss, Mark. Always ever capable, she knows that he would be lost without her, but what Ellie doesn’t realise, is quite how much he does need her. One day when she is locking up the office for the evening, she is abducted and subjected to an experience which changes her life forever. Mysteriously tortured in a most unexpected way, terrified beyond anything she had ever felt before, she discovers that some agony is sweet enough to stir her, even against her will.

Shocked by the turn of events, Ellie grows closer to her boss and a torrid love affair sizzles between them, showing just how deep Mark’s passion for her runs. Experimenting with new and exciting erotic situations, she is shown a world of delight filled with laughter and tickling, and other kinky pleasures. Wrapped up completely in Mark, she falls deeply in love with him, until one fateful weekend he reveals a deep, dark secret which threatens to destroy everything between them - and everything she had ever known about him.

Laughter, terror and high heel shoes abound in this tale of discovery and love, never before has tickling been so appealing! But one final question stands in the way of their everlasting happiness. Will Ellie ever be able to overcome the shattering revelation that Mark has to declare?

Laughing aloud, I was instantly ashamed at my vocal response, ashamed at losing control. Before the ordeal had commenced, I had decided resolutely that whatever he could do to me, I could keep my control – shut myself off – deny him the satisfaction of my fear, but this? He was taking control of my body with just the light drag of his fingertips over the sole of my right foot. He repeated this assault on my left foot, whilst continuing to tickle my right foot. Gulping for air, my cries came raggedly as I tried to fight my natural responses. I couldn’t imagine how this could become any worse, but then to my horror, he tickled up my legs and under my skirt. I writhed under his touch, howling – completely out of control now.

Working his way up my body, across my stomach, he paused momentarily to trace the curve of my waist and hips. I could feel the desire rolling from him as he considered me, the atmosphere crackling with emotion – the strength of his need. His hands never left me, probing and squeezing – no doubt whilst he watched, assessing my reactions – and then he slowed his inspection, settling for a short moment, pressing down gently on my abdomen, almost reassuringly. Then suddenly, he tugged my blouse out of my skirt, slipping his hands underneath it and skillfully found several sensitive spots around my rib cage, making my back arch. I thrashed under his silent but deft attack. His previous examination had directed his fingers to exactly the right places to make me squirm, but just as I could take no more, he stopped.

I lay there panting, whimpering, gulping for air – wondering how long had passed since I’d been strapped down to this table. Time was non-existent; I was being attacked in a way that I had never even thought possible. This was worse than him beating me! If he had hurt me, I could have retreated, saved my sanity, but this? He knew my body was his. It was undeniable. I was incredibly turned on, and deeply ashamed. This unknown man’s hands were forcing me to respond to him – sexually – turning me into an animal.

Author Bio

Throughout her life Tessa Wanton has always had her head buried in a book, spending much of her time in a fantasyland. She constantly looks to immerse herself in new experiences, meet new people and explore new lands, fictional or otherwise.

Having had an extensive musical background from early childhood, both performing and composition, she has always enjoyed creating art that stirs the emotions. Her debut Novella, “The Training Of Tess”, led to an expansion of her creativity from her music into literature and she has many more incredibly passionate and titillating stories for Tess in progress, to be revealed shortly.

Tessa has been fascinated with the BDSM scene for many years, researching the content for her stories with close friends, who have been kind enough to be open and share their intimate experiences. The information that inspired her most were the recollections her friends revealed.  She realized that what we all hear and see in the media about BDSM is always violent and often times sadistic.  However, in reality, there is so much more of an emotional and intellectual connection, a willing and completely consensual trust and communication between partners, and this was the basis for the creation of her protagonists.

Is her namesake her? Perhaps she is. She certainly has the depth of emotions that Tessa feels and she hopes that Tessa’s experiences may perhaps change the reader’s views about the world of BDSM. Along with her other characters, Tessa hopes to allow readers to realize that there is so much more to explore within our sexualities than the mass media would have us believe.

  4. I could not handle being tickled. I used to be very ticklish and one of my mom's uncles would catch me going to the restroom and him and his son (who was just about 5'ish years older than me) would hold me and tickle me. I swear they were sadistic, and not in a good way, LOL.
    Guys in high school (boyfriends & friends) tickled me a lot too cause I was so ticklish. They ended up causing me to not be ticklish anymore. Occasionally I will have a ticklish spot but nothing major.

    1. Ooh that does sound hideous! It seems there are a lot of evil ticklers out there, it's always the memories of youth that seems to cause people to hate tickling, especially those who take it too far!

      Thank you for entering June, and good luck!
