Painful Consequences Book Tour and Giveaway


Painful Consequences 
by Breanna Hayse 
Genre: Contemporary Romance 


If you like hot, uniformed men who believe in placing spoiled, sassy brats across their knees for some old fashioned discipline, be prepared to enjoy this book. Of course, be prepared for other reading delights while an uncensored African Gray parrot offerssuggestions. (Yes, Harry the Parrot gets his HEA!)

There are some people who know nothing by luxury and are shielded from the repercussions of their actions by either wealth or power. Twenty-six-year-old Brittany Wallace was one of them until the day she went one step too far, and her perfect life is over when she is kicked out of the house.

Never knowing what a day’s work looked like, Brittany has no choice but to beg her twin brother to allow her to stay with him. Given her recent criminal record and drug charges, the police officer is hesitant but eventually agrees—under the condition that his sister understands that bratty behavior would not be tolerated, and failure to abide by the rule would result in painful consequences.
.
Their new neighbor, Reed Simms, is a fellow officer from her brother’s unit and immediately takes an interest in his friend’s sister. He’s amused by how she plays ‘hard-to-get’ by the humor disappears when she crosses the line of disrespect or worse, breaking her sobriety. His feelings of affection for the beautiful woman mixed with fear and the strong, sensible man takes the actions needed to keep her focused. When the words that she needs to hear are ignored, Reed takes a more judicial approach and bares her backside for a long, firm and lovingly administered spanking.

Brittany also learns that if a spanking doesn’t help motivate her to take care of herself and make better choices, Reed has many other creative ways to ensure the lesson is taught…and not all of them involve pain. 





BDSM/AP lifestyler Breanna Hayse strives to give her readers truth and reality of the BDSM/Age-Play/Total Power and Erotic Exchange lifestyle.
Who am I?
I'm a native Californian gone 'wild', and had the opportunity to travel the globe and discover the world through the eyes of both a Marine Intelligence specialist and a BDSM lifestyler. I left the service to go into hospice nursing and grief counseling, eventually working as a marriage and family therapist for those involved in alternative lifestyle development. This experience has allowed me to gain unique inspiration for my books and offer realistic plots and relatable characters.

In 2004, my husband, John, and I joined forces to work with both submissives and dominants- teaching, training, listening and loving. Our goal was to take the mystery and fear out of the lifestyle and mentor people in safe, consensual and healthy relationships.

I was formally 'dungeon trained' as a Domme before discovering my submissive side when I joined the service. My scenarios are pulled primarily from either personal experience or observation, including spending time in BDSM clubs as the safety/medical officer. My multi-faceted background allows me to glean from many avenues and give a unique and intelligent literary experience through elements of fantasy and fiction. I also discuss the questions and psychology of the lifestyle in a manner that is fun and informative, and based on 'the real deal.'

I live with my husband, musician, and fellow-author, John Hayse, and two border collies in southern California. We practice a 24/7 D&S relationship with speckles of AP (and many trips to Build-A-Bear), and happily spend every moment together that we can. My hobbies include my puppies, hiding my vanilla salt-water taffy where John can't find it, exotic art, collecting inspirational trinkets, and developing my own paddle line. You can also see me as a featured author/instructor in professional conference settings and as a Sexpert for kinkyliterature.com.

An avid fan of all romance, Beverly's goal is to share her love of the written word and write the hot and erotic romances that she enjoys. She writes what she loves to read and it was only a matter of time before her obsessions crept into her writing for her to share. She hopes you enjoy her tales as much as she loves writing them.
