Chocolatey Goodness by Lucy Felthouse

Hi everyone,

A few weeks ago, I spent a day combining two of my very favourite things. No, not Tom Hiddleston and Benedict Cumberbatch (puts on bucket list). The Peak District in Derbyshire, England, and chocolate. I went to a place called Cocoadance, which is on a National Trust farm on the outskirts of the beautiful town of Castleton, which sits on the border of the White Peak and the Dark Peak. It’s a haven for outdoorsy folk, and, apparently, chocolate lovers.

lucyblindfoldCocoadance has been going for almost twenty years, and as well as making chocolate for the likes of Harrods and Harvey Nichols, they also run workshops for the public to go and attend. You have to pay, naturally, but you get a thorough education, lots of tasting and a whole pile of chocolate to take home with you. What could be better?

It was indeed a fantastic day. We started out by settling in, meeting the guy who runs the workshops, Dave, and generally chatting until everyone turned up. We were only allowed to drink water to start with, as we had to keep our palates clean ready for the tasting session. After donning aprons and name badges, it was time to start.

Dave talked us through the invention of chocolate, how it’s made, how it’s sourced, and so on. Then the reason for the blindfolds on the tables became clear. Having been reassured there was nothing untoward going on – there were children there, after all! – we reluctantly donned our masks as Dave pressed chocolates he’d made into our palms. We were then to eat them and try and guess things like how much cocoa powder was in them, how many cocoa solids, any other tastes, and so on. It was interesting to see what other people came up with – and I learned a whole new appreciation for milk chocolate after being given a couple of seriously bitter pieces of dark chocolate. It’s certainly an acquired taste!

Next, it was onto making our own. We donned very sexy hairnets. First of all we made chocolates in moulds – we could use white, milk or dark chocolate (or a combination), along with various other things like sprinkles, Smarties, marshmallows and more. Cue lots of giggling and mess, and a whole bunch of noise as we were encouraged to bang our moulds on the surfaces to remove any air bubbles.

creationsAfter that, we were given trays with greaseproof paper and told to go nuts. Basically, the faster we made things, the more we’d have to take home with us. At one point, my hands were entirely covered with chocolate due to a poorly made piping bag! But I did, in fact, fill my tray with a mad combination of swirls, buttons, flowers, a rubbish drawing of my dog, a book, a pen, my name, dipped marshmallows, and lots more. I kept mine fairly simple, using sprinkles and a combination of white and milk chocolate – no dark chocolate for me.

The trays were then stacked on a rack to set, and we grabbed our moulds from the fridge to see how they’d turned out. Cue more banging on the table to get the little chocolates out. Some of mine turned out better than others – apparently I should have banged on the table more, but my poor sensitive ears couldn’t take it! However, it didn’t affect the taste one bit – they were delicious.

We then started boxing our creations up. Dave generously told us to help ourselves to any of the chocolates he’d pre-made before the session for us to taste, so I ended up with several pieces of chocolate looking much more professional than mine! Adding our tray-made chocolates into bags (the box was long since full!) and washing up, removing our hair nets and aprons, lots of very happy chocolate lovers headed back out into the Peak District and onward with their goodies, along with lots of sarcastic comments about the chocolates not managing to survive the journey home!

After a delicious meal in a nearby pub, we headed home, exhausted but happy.

Now, I hear you ask – what’s that got to do with smut? Absolutely nothing, unless you include the muttered-under-the-breath comments when the blindfolds were put on. But… chocolate can be very smutty, and very erotic indeed, as evidenced by the release of another anthology of chocolate smut! I contributed to the first anthology, and couldn’t resist penning chocolate smut for this one, too.

A Sensuous Bite…

CASSANDRE DAYNE

Mmm… Doesn’t that sound delicious right about now? 

Do you love to take a bite out of your man? Close you eyes for me and imagine a moment of passion that you’re sharing together  – just you and your man perhaps lounging by the pool or perhaps in front of a roaring fire. Don’t you love to inhale the rich scent of your man and love the musky fragrance of his body? I love to lick across the seam of his mouth before nibbling down his chin to his neck and licking all…the…way down and…well, you get the saucy idea. Have you ever kicked up the heat and used something perhaps to make him even tastier? Now I’m not talking about all those luscious edible treats you can buy in a sex shop.

Who needs edible undies when you can slather your lover with something truly delicious, completely edible and oh so sexy? The question is would you prefer champagne or chocolate? Jam or Honey? Have you ever thought about a setting up a delicious night where you leave all caution to the wind? Perhaps you will start out lounging in front of a roaring fire with a lovely glass of wine, a basket of toys and romantic or primal music playing as an appetizer. Maybe you can offer your partner a sensual relaxing massage and light some candles. Whispering a soft poem or reading a naughty passage from your favorite erotic writer, you can tell when he or she is ready for a wicked adventure.

Then the real fun can begin! I love to think of creative ways of using food and beverages and perhaps some very normal household items you wouldn’t necessarily think of as the perfect erotic toy and incorporating them into my stories. I write very sexual and sometimes downright kinky treats about fantasies and we all have them. You never know what might become a brand new yummy toy unless you try it out, using that wicked and sinful part of your imagination. I must admit that two of my favorite items I use both in stories and out are a bit of bubbly and melted, gooey, dark chocolate. Getting a bit thirsty are you? Let’s look at the pros and cons of using food and drink as a festive aphrodisiac.

Champagne – it’s frothy and cold and the effervescent bubbles can give you a perfect little kick inside your mouth, leaving that taste that lingers perfectly. Now, close your eyes and just imagine what effects it can have on your partner. Intrigued? Without getting into anything too graphic, envision taking a huge gulp and then leaning over your man, pressing your lips across his and forcing them open slightly. As the feel of hot and cold slice into his system, you can imagine that single whimper that leaves his mouth as he wraps his hands around your waist and draws you in so tightly that you are left breathless and desperately hungry to taste more of him.

Then just think about another long sip and edging down the length of his chest, inching toward…nirvana. Okay, I know, is it getting hot in here? I can tell you that the effects are invigorating and delicious on both a man and a woman by the way. Now reverse the situation until you are lying on your back and he is pressing kisses down the length of your body,,,pulsing his tongue across the heat of her tender flesh until your hand flutters down to grip his hair, longing to yank him to that sinful place you need. I can tell you ladies that the feeling is truly scintillating.

Champagne is tasty and refreshing and it certainly doesn’t have to be expensive. It is also not particularly messy and can be controlled. That is…if you want to. Let’s look at molten chocolate.

At this point I am thinking about the chocolate fondue. Imagine that perfect crackling fire again and this time you have a snazzy bottle of merlot, Kenny G on the stereo and fruits and cheeses on a silver platter just waiting to be consumed. Take a tasty nip and savor the flavor in the back of your mouth. It’s rich and warm with that incredible hint of raspberry or hazelnut. You dip the succulent strawberry inside and wait as he watches you for…long…wicked…seconds…until…you consume…the luscious…fruit. Lick! You heated up yet?

Envision taking your finger, dipping into the gooey warmth and easing it out, finally slathering it across the seam of his mouth before you capture his lips, pressing your tongue inside to combine the rich tastes of his masculinity and the luscious treat. Tip his head back as you trace your finger down and across his chin, nibbling all the way as you go further down until…

Hmmm…tough choice. What do you guys think? Succulent and sweet or tangy and ripe? I am having a hard time deciding. Granted one is messier than the next, but… I would love to hear from you. What is your choice and tell me why? And…have you used something else to tempt and taunt. Perhaps a little bit of honey or a taste of raspberry cream? There are endless possibilities.

Jam – think about dripping homemade strawberry jam down from his neck in a zigzag line of pure lust. He’ll be all stick and sweet and hot for you. Straddle his body and take a nibble or two. Honey is just as incredible of an aphrodisiac for me as it’s thick enough not to trickle in the places you don’t want it to and yet so tasty. One more luscious thought happens to be a Popsicle. Remember when we were kids and ran after the ice cream man or perhaps when mom came home in the summer with a box full of frozen treats? Didn’t you want to lick the delicious frozen creation until it dripping all over the kitchen floor? Why don’t you buy a boy and share it this weekend? There are many ways of using the treat. Mmm… I know what you’re thinking – a sticky mess. Is there anything wrong with taking a hot shower together afterwards? Perhaps a massage would be in order after that…just thinking!

I hope I’ve given you some delicious ideas and you can always invent a new and very wicked treat of your own. The next time you step in front of the fridge or your pantry, imagine the possibilities! Do you have some very sexy ideas? I hope so…

JUST WHO IS THIS CASSANDRE DAYNE CHICK?

So I was asked to add my little smuttiness to the sexy new blog I was invited to participate in and all about me! Goodness, I thought everyone knew I was the wicked and wild woman. Okay, so what does that mean? It means I write sexy and highly erotic romance and erotica stories and I don’t mince words. I write m/f, m/m, BDSM, ménage, paranormal, fantasy, sci/fi, cowboy and hell – just about every other genre you can think of. What I can promise you is that the stories don’t pull any punches. They are going to tell you a story with a hell of a lot of kink and they’ll take some creative kink out for a spin. I write for Rebel Ink Press and Naughty Nights Press and love the people I work with and the authors as well, who inspire me every day. I have over fifty books out with several more under contract and I can’t seem to write fast enough! I also write articles for several national and international blogs on everything from D/s to figging, fantasies to voyeurism, and I enjoy learning my craft more and more every day.

Okay – that’s the boring part. Now let’s get to the meat of the story – no pun intended of course. People ask me two questions: where do I get all the kinky ideas for my stories and am I that kinky… Let me see. The ideas usually come in the middle of the night and I can pen a story and make it all hot and wet and delicious from any scenario. I double dare you to tempt and try me. Tease me baby with all you got. Am I that kinky? I cannot tell a lie… MUAH

So how about a few fun details about me.

MEN – You all know I LOVE men – right? Well, I just can’t help myself. So the question is what kind do I prefer? I like my men in all flavors and roughness – just as long as they’re lickable. I love chocolate laced and vanilla and rough-hewn and classy. Who doesn’t like a man in a skin tight pair of worn jeans or a suit? Then again, I prefer my men in nothing at all. What do I look at first? Their eyes – the window into the soul.

WOMEN – I think women are beautiful in all shapes and sizes and their sensuality is what draws me in. I enjoy writing about women who are both powerful and passionate and ballsy too. No bar flies in any of my books!

SEX TOYS – You had to know I’d throw something wicked in, right? Shhh… don’t tell anyone but I love sex toys and have drawers and boxes full and while a huge portion are for panel discussions and shows I do, some are just for me. Girls, you have to love the rabbit vibrator. Come on now and stop blushing!

ICE OR CHAMPAGNE? I know you must be asking why. Because both can be used for some passionate playtime. Have you ever slid a cube of ice all the way down your lover’s body and watched as it melted and then licked up the heated drops? Have you ever taken the erotic moment a step further ladies and placed several in your mouth and then used them combination of sizzling hot and ice cold to devour your man – you know what I mean. If you don’t, that’s your assignment for tonight. Men, have you used the ice on your ladies, teasing and tempting? I can tell you there isn’t a part of her body that she won’t enjoy you indulging her fantasies. Imagine champagne in replacement. Give you some snazzy thoughts? Trust me, there’s nothing better than the bubbles and they can bring you into ecstasy.

CHOCOLATE ANYONE? Well, I do indeed love chocolate, but since I’m allergic to dark chocolate I have to use white. Now imagine melted chocolate all over your body and a sexy hunk of a man is forced to lick every drop off your body? I can certainly see turning the tide on this one and slathering his body with hot warm chocolate. Can’t you? As a matter of fact I have a HOT HOT HOT little release coming up on the 3rd with just this thought in mind. Take a taste of:

SPICY WHITE CHOCOLATE

Shawna Dupres was more than ready to have a steamy affair and so were the women in her erotic book club. Forming a wicked pact, each was to hunt and seduce a man. The winner would receive an all expenses paid weekend for the lucky couple. The kick was the hunk had to be much younger. Unfortunately owning Sauce and Spice, an upscale Cajun bistro and one with serious financial troubles forced long hours. She desperately needed inspiration for a spicy dessert and a way to save her livelihood. When Austin Tomlin arrived to repair a storm-damaged door, she knew the brawny man might be the tasty treat that could kick start her career and her libido. A spicy white chocolate fondue was a huge hit all the way around.

Austin craved the voluptuous woman at first sight and while she was years older, it only added to her allure and he knew Karma was giving him more than a hint or two. Engaging in a conversation, the sparks flew and they entered into a wild tryst in the middle of the kitchen, realizing they both craved more. Unfortunately Austin wasn’t who he purported himself to be and his secret could finish their relationship before it even started. Then again, if he came clean, he might be able to help her save her restaurant. But Shawna had been burned before. Could she trust this man to save not only her restaurant but also her heart?

Can you just imagine how hot it’s going to be? And you get to shower afterwards – whew baby.

LINGERIE – I am a lingerie girl. It’s funny, people honestly say I’m more like a guy from the way I drive to
the fact I can use a power tool with the best of the men, but I like being a girl. From purchasing sexy dresses to stilettos, I love the feel of being sexy. What I like the best is purchasing hot teddies and undies from Victoria’s Secret. After all, your man wants to see you in something sexy. You know he does. Then he can rip them off of you before he devours your body.

D/s RELATIONSHIP – Hmmm… I write a lot about the D/s lifestyle and I am truly exploring certain aspects. Granted, I’m a wild woman with willful ways, as I keep getting reminded. But…there is a side of me that enjoys having a man taking full control. I also write about the lifestyle more and more and in penning On Becoming His, a personal journey for more than one reason, I truly delved into my personal psyche about why I feel the way I do. I have a hard time actually getting people to believe I have a submissive side but the truth is I do. I think powerful people on the outside crave something else – whether just in the bedroom or the lifestyle. Take a taste of Jessie and Luke’s journey and the second in the trilogy is being penned with my cohort in crime, so to speak, Benjamin Russell – who I cannot thank enough for his valued input.

 

 

 

 

 

ON BECOMING HIS

Jezebel Waters, Jessie to her friends, had everything in her life that she could ever want. From a successful career as a top-level executive, a hefty salary and fabulous friends, she had the world in the palm of her hand – except for the right man in her life. In the back of her mind she knew she was missing something and the realization was almost terrifying. She craved being under the command of a powerful Dom, but how the hell could she admit to anyone what she considered her kinky needs?

Resigned to living a very vanilla life, she entered into several relationships and every one of them failed miserably. Jessie gave up on love – until she met Luke Brennan. From his gorgeous chocolate-laced skin to his quiet yet powerful demeanor, Jessie was hooked on learning more. Growing close, when he admitted his own needs, she knew she’d found everything she’d been searching for her entire life. While Luke wanted nothing more than to own her, he was hesitant to enter into the agreement until she completely understood the life she would lead as a collared woman.

While she was more than eager to learn, she remained terrified of the girl inside and of her dark hungers. Join Jessie on an emotional journey as she delves deep into her psyche, not only beginning to understand her willingness to become Luke’s in every way, but also to comprehend exactly what the new beginning would entail — trust and control. Through poems and prose, this story is just the beginning for both…

Okay so enough about me already! You know more than most of my close friends do. Truthfully, my friends and family think I’m a little odd – and I take that as a compliment. You can visit my page on here and all my links where you can stalk me are on the page.

Don’t forget to comment on my blog for a chance at a give away from the 14 authors involved – going through tonight so… Hit me up with just how kinky you are and you never know what you’ll win.

Kisses   xxx
