JENNA’S PUNISHMENT – new from Ruby Carew!

The newest story from my naughty alter ego, Ruby Carew, is out today!

JENNA’S PUNISHMENT, Book 1 in Jenna’s Best Friend’s Father series.

As Ruby I write red hot erotica stories that’ll curl your toes. 😉 All of Ruby’s stories are short and sexy little treats – for adults only! This book contains taboo erotic BDSM encounters between a younger woman and an off-limits sexy older man. And the stories can be stand-alone, or you can follow Jenna through the whole series…


I’ve been attracted to him for a long time, but he is totally out of bounds. He’s my best friend’s father and I know I shouldn’t be lusting after him. But now he’s offered me a summer job at his place and things are heating up between us. He has just one rule. Don’t look inside the room.

But I just can’t resist…


Some secrets are worth pursuing – especially when discovering them means you might be punished…

Jenna’s Punishment (Book 1) – OUT NOW!:

Jenna’s Two Masters (Book 2) – coming June 27th:

And, just like Ruby’s other releases, both stories will also be available in one box set – Jenna’s Best Friend’s Father, Collection 1 – coming soon!

Here’s a sexy little snippet for you…

I stepped from the shower and dried off. Oh, damn, I’d left my clothing out by the pool. I glanced at my bathing suit floating in the sink where I’d left it to rinse. I really didn’t want to pull on that wet thing again.

I sighed and wrapped the bath towel around myself. Cade had gone out to do some grocery shopping and had told me he probably wouldn’t be back until after I’d gone home. I opened the door and peered out, then hurried down the hallway to the kitchen, and out the patio doors. I picked up my clothes from the patio chair, but then glanced around, and decided to pull them on right here.

I leaned over and stepped into my shorts, then pulled them up. As I was fastening them, the towel slipped away and fell to the ground.

Damn. I leaned over and picked it up, then turned back to the chair.


I glanced up at Cade’s shocked voice, then my cheeks heated as his gaze glided over my naked breasts.

Oh, God, I was both mortified, and extremely turned on. His gaze locked onto my nipples as they peaked to hard nubs.

Then he spun around. “I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to…”

I grabbed my top and pulled it on. “It’s okay. It wasn’t your fault. I forgot my clothes out here and thought… well, it doesn’t matter. You can… uh… turn around.”

Slowly, he turned back to me and I noticed a huge bulge pushing against his jeans. And his gaze wavered over my breasts as he tried valiantly not to look at my hard nipples pushing against the thin cotton of my top.

You can listen to the PG version of the audio sample from Book 1 here:


Sonny has a debilitating fear of men. Tal is a scary looking tattooed bad-ass. Can Tal get Sonny past her fear and help her become whole?

Sonny longs to feel the intimate touch of a man. But she is haunted by a past trauma that leaves her terrified of being with a man.

She has found one way to cope. A stranger’s voice has been her salvation. She regularly listens to the sensual audio she found on-line, submitting to the man’s voice and allowing him to take her to ecstasy again and again. His sexy yet deeply caring tone makes her experience what it would be like to be truly desired by a man. She’s come to trust that voice.

Despite his scary appearance, Sonny feels an overwhelming attraction to her new next-door neighbor. She should be afraid of him, but something about him overrides that fear.

When Sonny is finally introduced to Tal, and hears his voice, she is shocked to find he is the man from the tape. She avoids him, unable to face the stranger who unknowingly brings her to ecstasy.

When Tal meets Sonny, he senses in her a kindred spirit. The haunting pain in her eyes draws him, but he flinches every time fear flickers across her face when she sees him.

When he finally confronts her, asking why she’s avoiding him, she tells him she heard the audio he’d published on the erotica sight and, to his total shock, she tells him that audio saved her life. Then she tells him about her past, tearing his heart in two.

It becomes clear that she is as deeply attracted to him as he is to her. He vows to find a way to help her get past her pain and be with a man.

Sonny has a debilitating fear of men. Tal is a scary looking tattooed bad-ass. Can Tal get Sonny past her fear and help her become whole?

Sonny longs to feel the intimate touch of a man. But she is haunted by a past trauma that leaves her terrified of being with a man. Even when she dreams of being in a man’s arms, the steamy sexual situation turns into a nightmare.

Sonny has found one way to cope. A stranger’s voice has been her salvation.

Tal looks the way he does because of a past fraught with pain. The tattoos aren’t going anywhere, so he needs to find a woman who will accept him for who he is… and was.

When Tal sees Sonny, he senses in her a kindred spirit. The haunting pain in her eyes draws him, but he flinches every time fear flickers across her face when she sees him.

Can Tal find a way to break through Sonny’s barriers and start something that might heal them both?

The Office Slave conclusion – Release day!

Great news! The exciting conclusion of The Office Slave series is out now! It’s available today as part of the final boxed set containing two stories. 🙂


Will his need to be in control destroy his only chance at happiness?

Mr. Grant’s need to control everything in his life–including his women and his emotions–has cost him the one thing he truly desires. Sylvia. He wants her–no, he needs her–back in his life. To dominate her… and to care for her. But can he push himself to his emotional limits and do what it takes to win her back?

“No panties, Sylvia. You are a dirty girl.”

She flattened one hand on his chest. “I’m a very dirty, naughty girl. You need to punish me.”

Those last words came out a little needier than she’d intended.

“You still want me to master you?”

She bit her lip, hesitating, then finally nodded.

He sighed, his gaze shifting back to her. “Well, you found the perfect way to convince me. Turn around.”

Since there are 7 stories in the series, I’ve thrown in a bonus story called The Captive. It’s a brand new story and, if you’ve been following The Office Slave series, then I thought you’d enjoy seeing more of the sexy Mr. King. 🙂


Note: This is also available in print (as a single book with two stories).


The individual stories will be released over the next two weeks. Buying the box set is the best deal, though, since it’s the same price as buying either of the stories individually! 🙂

Master, Mr. King. Sylvia will do anything to please him as he dominates her with a strong hand—commanding her, disciplining her, even sharing her with his business partners—just like Mr. Grant did. Mr. King fulfils her every fantasy. But unlike Mr. Grant, he cherishes her, and shows her the love she craves. She truly wishes she could give him what he wants. Her love. But she knows in her heart, she will never stop loving Mr. Grant.

Getting into Gear!

Life’s been so busy since before the holidays and then I got the flu, so I’ve fallen behind on lots of things, but now I’m making great progress on my current book and am writing some short stories to publish soon!

For those waiting for it, I hope to have The Office Slave #4 out within a month or so! Sorry to have kept you all waiting for so long!



As soon as story #4 is out, I will release a new boxed set with story #3 (On Her Knees) and story #4 (don’t have a title yet).  In fact, here’s a sneak peak at the cover for that boxed set.


I’ll have stories in 4 boxed sets over the next few months! Many of you may be interested in our Invitation to Eden boxed set coming out in February.  We’re waiting for the cover for that, but I’ll let you know when we get it!

The new Mastered 2 boxed set will be out in April and it’s already up for preorder.  The set will contain 10 brand new stories by some fabulous authors!  The cover is still being updated, since the author line-up has changed since we first had it made in the fall.  You can see the current list of authors included on the Amazon listing.


I’ll keep you posted as things become available, but if you want to hear about these as they release, you can sign up for my newsletter!

Excerpt from Debt of Honor, by NYT & USAT Bestselling Author, Opal Carew

Angelica glanced down at the costume again. It was stunning in royal blue and gold with a gorgeous design formed by the intricate beadwork. The bottom of the bra and the hip band were dripping with beaded fringe. It cascaded from the bra and caressed her bare midriff. She had taken belly dance classes over the past couple of years and had eyed the instructors’ costumes, wishing she could afford one for herself, yet this was more exquisite than any she’d ever seen.

“You like it, yes?” one of the women asked. She seemed to be the one in charge.

“It’s … beautiful.”

The woman took her hand and drew her forward. “Wonderful. The master will be pleased.”

Angelica’s eyes widened. They were taking her to him in this?

When she slowed down, the women gathered around her and kept her moving forward.

“Stop it. I won’t go dressed like this.”

“You must. The master has ordered it.”

They quickly approached the door. Panic flooded through her. She couldn’t.

“I won’t wear this!” She reached behind her back and tried to unfasten the bra, but the unfamiliar closure and the fussing hands of the women prevented her from succeeding. She pulled the straps off her shoulders and tried to pull it forward.

“No, miss. You might rip it,” one panicked woman insisted.

Rip it. That’s exactly what she’d do. She tugged at the straps but they were securely fastened on. She switched to the belt and tugged hard. Despite the women pulling at her arms, she found where it fastened. She realized they had stopped their forward momentum as they struggled with her. She jerked several times until finally, she heard the belt tear, then it fell from her hips.

The women spoke frantically in their own language. Next, she tore at the shimmering, diaphanous fabric of the skirt, ripping it from her body. She shoved her fingertips under the bra beside her left breast and pulled hard. The elastic gave a little and she tried to pull it upwards.

“Stop! You will ruin it.”

She felt fingers working at the fastening, then the bra loosened. One of her captors took it, scowling at Angelica.

The woman in charge stepped in front of Angelica, her hands on her hips.

“The master will be very angry.”

“Then don’t tell him.”

“His orders were for you to be brought to him in that outfit.”

Angelica placed her hands on her own hips, extremely conscious of her nudity but ignoring it.

“Well, maybe it’s time for him to learn that not all his orders will be followed.”

One of the women gasped. Angelica suspected the only reason the other woman didn’t seem surprised was because she didn’t speak English.

She marched away from them, snatched the silk coverlet from the bed and wrapped it around herself. She sat down, her arms crossed over her chest as she held the coverlet firmly around herself.

She had shown them she wouldn’t be pushed around, she thought smugly. But Angelica’s smugness faded quickly when the women simply dragged her from the bed and led her through the hallways totally naked except for the cover she clung to.

They stopped in front of a heavy wooden door in a tall, arched doorway. The head woman knocked and the door pulled open. A tall guard greeted her and waved them inside. The women led Angelica into a large, sumptuous room filled with plush, upholstered couches and chairs piled high with silk and velvet cushions, all in rich jewel tones, and ornately carved, ebony furniture. They prodded her to the middle of the room and stood behind her. The guard left, but she was certain he would be standing right outside, ensuring she didn’t run for it.

“What is this?” a familiar, masculine voice demanded.

She glanced around and saw Kadin, the sinfully gorgeous man who’d insisted she owed him a debt, and demanded she pay with her body. She opened her mouth to voice a protest at her treatment, but his dark, penetrating eyes stole her breath away.

His stormy gaze drifted over the blue silk coverlet cloaking her.

She straightened her shoulders, but tightened her hold on the fabric.

“They refused to provide me with decent clothes.”

His eyebrows raised and he stepped toward her. She could read nothing in his coal-black eyes. His mood, whether foul or fair, was a mystery to her. His presence filled the room and, as he approached, she had to force herself not to cringe. Yet at the same time, her body buzzed with an alarming excitement.

Her body reacted to him far too easily. She reminded herself what might happen here tonight.

Unfortunately, that kicked the excitement up several notches making her insides quiver.

“I see. So you decided to cover yourself with this.” His tone, low and dangerous, sent alarm skittering through her.

Before she could comprehend what was happening, he grabbed the blanket and yanked it from her grasp.

On Her Knees (The Office Slave #3) – no longer censored by Amazon!

Hi.  Amazon has finally removed the Adult Flag from On Her Knees (The Office Slave #3)!  This is the new cover.  You might notice from my last post that there is more shading to cover her derriere!  Without that shading , it was a no go!

I am continuing to try and get the word out on this story again.  🙂

The Office Slave 3: On Her Knees, available now in Kindle, Kobo and Nook!


They brought her ultimate fantasy to life…
Now it gets real.

Her friend had arranged for her to live out her fantasy of being office slave to four hot hunky business partners, and at the end, their fifth partner had called to ask if she wanted to be dominated… for real. His deep, domineering voice had elicited the most compelling and intense dreams she’d ever known. Then when she gave up control to him, she was totally hooked.

Now she is exploring what it means to be in a Dominant/submissive relationship with a man who seems to gain more pleasure from watching her with other men rather than giving her what she really wants. Him.

Mr. Grant has never experienced a submissive as willing and desirable as Sylvia. Everything about her makes him want her, eroding the steadfast control he keeps over himself when mastering a woman.

No submissive has ever broken through his carefully erected barrier of indifference. Until now.

Can Sylvia break through his self-imposed walls to touch the man beneath?


The Office Slave series currently consists of:
The Office Slave
The Office Slave #2: The Boss
The Office Slave #3: On Her Knees
and there are more to come.

Note that the first two books in this series are available at a significant discount in The Office Slave Series, Book 1 & 2 Boxed Set.


On Her Knees (The Office Slave #3) – CENSORED

OpalCarew_TheOfficeSlave3_BW.800     OpalCarew_TheOfficeSlave4-HR

As if the road hasn’t been rocky enough getting On Her Knees (The Office Slave #3) out to my readers, now Amazon has slapped the dreaded Adult Tag on it.

This means that readers cannot find the story when they search for it, even if they put in the appropriate search criteria (for instance “Opal Carew On Her Knees”)!  Unless you either select “Books” or “Kindle Store” from the Department drop list (to the left of the search field), you will not find the book.  It will also be hidden from listings other books will enjoy, like the also bought lists at the bottom of similar books, etc.

It may not sound big, but sales have plummeted since it happened.  I’m working on getting Amazon to remove the adult tag, but they refused based on the cover.  Okay, so I’ve gone out and gotten a different cover for it (really, really fast–thank you so much to Kim Killion of Hot Damn Designs for helping me out).  I hope they’ll accept this one, but it all takes time to go through the process.  I loaded the cover up on Amazon on Saturday, but at the time I’m writing this post, it’s still not up, and I can’t request they remove the Adult Filter until the cover is up.

If you have any friends who can’t find it and want to buy it, please send them this link:

Thank you!
