Sexy Sunday - Excerpt from "Helpless" by Shandra Miller

Getting back into the swing of things and a Sexy Sunday is a great place to start! This week I'm thrilled to feature a super steamy, tension-filled excerpt from Shandra Miller's new novel Helpless, the sequel to her fantastic novel Lethal Obsession (read my review here). It will be available for Kindle as of August 15th. Enjoy, you dirty little birds (and don't forget to subscribe to the blog if you haven't already →)!


Helpless, an erotica-suspense novel by Shandra Miller, is the sequel to Lethal Obsession. Helpless will be available for download to Kindle on Aug. 15, and available for Nook and for all formats at Smashwords shortly thereafter.

Her cry was met with a slap across the face. Not hard, but sharp enough to sting.

"More, please Sir."

He laughed, a quiet whisper of a laugh, then the sound of the leather strap slicing through the air followed, cut off by the snap of the leather against her ass.

Angela flinched at the contact, but could do little more. Her arms stretched overhead, wrists tied by a rope attached to the ceiling. Her legs were wide, a spreader bar between her ankles, each end lashed to those ankles so that she was unable to move. Her vision was blotted out by a black cloth tied around her head.

The leather kissed her skin again and again. She moaned from the pain, from the arousal, trying desperately to close her legs tight, to bring herself to climax.

"No you don’t," he whispered before shoving a piece of ice into her cunt.

She gasped, her heart racing even harder now.

"You belong to me," he whispered, hand tracing the contours of her bare breasts as he spoke. "Your body, your sex…" he worked the ice back and forth. "Even your existence." His hand pulled away – the ice mercifully fell out, then she felt the pull of a rope tightening around her neck. He pulled until her air was nearly cut off, his other hand continuing to caress her breasts, fingers lightly rolling first one nipple, then the other.

"Ple…ase…" she rasped, fighting for breath.

"Please what?"


Her plea was cut off by his lips, pressing hard against hers, tongue plunging deep in her mouth.

She tried breathing through her nose, but couldn't catch her breath. Angela struggled, but was unable to move. Even blindfolded pinpricks of light began bursting in her vision, she felt light-headed.

"Tanner," she screamed.

Meet The Author

Shandra Miller is a Midwest gal who left home at 16 and never looked back. She spent three years traveling the South as a carnie, another three with a circus -- yes, an honest-to-god circus. She's never owned a cell phone, doesn't have cable television, and is still trying to figure out Twitter, Facebook, and other social media. She works part-time as a waitress on the Blue Ridge Parkway and at night she watches the stars, takes walks and writes what some call erotica, others call smut, and she just calls fun.

She is the author of the erotica-suspense thriller Lethal Obsession, its sequel Helpless (due out Aug. 15), and the short erotica tales Private Dining, Room Service, Jennifer Lost, and Jennifer Bound. You can learn more about her at


  1. Thank you so much for allowing me to appear on your blog, Deliza. If you, Sofia, or any of your other readers have any questions about HELPLESS, LETHAL OBSESSION, or my writing in general, please post them here. I'll return several times over the next couple of days and answer them all!

  2. Cover for Helpless is great as is the preview excerpt- breathless in anticipation just from that small paragraph- I have a feeling this will be an even darker, sexier book than Lethal Obsession- the 15th August can't come soon enough, Shandra!

  3. Oh my, you just made my day! Thank you so much for reading LETHAL OBSESSION, for stopping by and commenting here at Dirty Dramas, and for your encouragement. I hope you enjoy HELPLESS.
