A Lost Review of “The Extravengers” by PA

Sep 19, 2017 by

{Author’s Note – I tried to post this to Amazon, but they rejected it because they are awful people. This is not the first time that has happened, so if it ever happens to you when you try to post a review of one of Dev’s books, do tell him about it, and he will make sure it gets published, anyway.}

Think about chemistry — the mind-tingling, wit-appreciative British humor that constantly brewed between Emma Peel (Dame Diana Rigg) and John Steed (Patrick Macnee) as they combine forces to save the world from mayhem during the 1960’s TV favorite “The Avengers.”

 

Pair it with biology — the core-tingling, palm-itching, bottom stinging responses evoked by the delightfully rounded posterior of Dame Diana that so often filled the small screen in the clever series.

 

And there you have it — the best of both worlds for an audience devoted to both the cerebrally engaging and the physically captivating. How eagerly humanity as we know it — both those who have embraced their true selves and those still struggling with the battle — awaited (and continues to pine for) each new episode.

 

Unfortunately, such a titillating actual spanking pair has yet to appear on-screen and, it must be acknowledged, never will.

 

Happily, however, just such a combination of witty theatrical crime solving and This Thing We Do does exist in a companion realm.

We owe that to multi-book author and spanking romance doyen Devlin O’Neill, who has invited us along on a page-turning adventure that showcases his favorite leading lady, her urbane and very well dressed male crime-fighting partner, and also a third character, whom the author seems to know as well as he knows himself, in the spanking-as-speculative-fiction novel “The Extravengers.”

 

 

The first time I read this book, I indulged fully in my usual approach to any of the dozens of tales O’Neill commits to paper — that of speed reading until I reach the “good” parts, which I then savor repeatedly and at my leisure. Then, with my appetite for physically-focused tingle satisfied — at least, temporarily — I began again. The second read-through nourished both my brain and my funny bone.

“You won’t run a few simple errands, even as a personal favor to me?” Reed said as he dribbled the last of the bubbly into her glass.

“You think you can prey upon my helplessness, don’t you?” Ella replied. “Just like last time.”

“My dear,” he said, his eyes wide as he raised his glass to her. “I never prey. It’s against my religion.”

 

O’Neill, admittedly, was still honing his literary (and spanking) craft as a teenager while Peel and Steed were dispatching the naughty-doers on-screen, without benefit of canes or corners, so I am quite certain he had nothing to do with creating either the endearingly British repartee or the fantastic story lines that kept viewers coming back for more, week after week, but he could well have stepped in to fill creative shoes, had such been needed.

 

O’Neill, a popular Internet blog host, proves that ability in “The Extravengers” with his mastery of interplay between the main characters, combined with his spot-on ability to create dialogue the reader can hear falling with ease from the lips of the crime-fighting duo.

 

Once he adds his usual shuddery-feeling disciplinary descriptions of the delightful Ms. Peel getting what we all know she secretly yearned for through multiple BBC TV series, and you have one of O’Neill’s most delightfully satisfying books yet, on oh, so many levels.

 

 

Once you’ve read this clever story, you’ll feel compelled to search out episodes of the original TV show online. And you’ll view each scene with new eyes, hoping against hope that the script handed to Rigg and Macnee all those years ago will somehow be magically supplanted by O’Neill’s lively story line, instead.

 

Of course, that is not to be, but you can still enjoy the best of both worlds, thanks to the spanking fiction master and his spot-on (that would be “sit-spot,” of course) take on Emma Peel (Ella Teal), John Steed (Jon Reed), and the mysterious Desmond McSteel (Devl — oh, but you’ll figure that part out for yourself, I’m sure.)

Happy reading, then, and please, do share your own impressions of this clever and very satisfying book. It will encourage O’Neill to supply us with more stories, I am quite sure. Maybe some of them will even focus on the further adventures of Ella and Jon. I know that there are more tales to be told and bottoms to be warmed in this talented author’s spank-centric mind.

And I NEED them.

So will you.

That is all.

Princess Anastasia out.

Name The Stars

Jul 16, 2017 by

Here’s a little test for you movie aficionados out there — who are these people and why are they behaving in this extraordinary manner?

Well, the second part is easy, or a bit of it, anyway. This shot, which I never had seen before it popped up in an image search last week, is apparently a publicity still from a black and white film that might or might not have included a spanking scene.

The girl might or might not be Betty Hutton from Annie Get Your Gun, and the guy sort of looks like a very young Jim Hutton, TV’s Ellery Queen, though that is probably not the case.

What film they’re advertising is a complete mystery, but if we can come up with the people, we can probably work out which movie they were plugging.

Let the Wikipedia-IMDbing commence and do comment with anything you know or can find about this. 

Thanks!

Dev

P.S. We have a winner, boys and girls! Audrey’s BG identified the stars as June Haver and Mark Stevens in “Wonder Who’s Kissing Her Now,” 1947. Good job, both of you! :-)

Paula Comes To Visit

Feb 3, 2017 by

Because she is such a lovely woman as well as a wonderfully talented artist, here are a few of her exquisite pictures for us to enjoy. This is the colorized version of the one I used (with Paula’s permission) on the cover of the revised A Maid for All Seasons, Volumes 1 and 2. The blonde’s name is Mitzi, or perhaps Flossie. I do not know the story that the artwork originally graced.

 

Paula often drew herself, in the literal sense, into her work. That cute, boy-cut hair is sort of a trademark with her, so this is a self-portrait.

Although, like most spanking artists, Paula depicted a great many female spankers, she is somewhat unique in that she also drew many strong and effective males.

 

Her period pieces are exemplary, also, and only a picky, toppy curmudgeon would point out that, if the man is right-handed, he is carrying his sword on the wrong side. He’s carrying his sword on the wrong side.

Of course, I adore her group portrayals. And if you think such tableaux are more indicative of a lusty male’s fevered imaginings than anything to do with real life, you have never spent a long weekend at Uncle Dev’s Camp for Wayward Girls.

Here is one that quite approximates a girl being called to Uncle Dev’s office for a discussion. Note the stitching along the edges of the paddle. I’m willing to bet that is a London Tanners product.

 

 

This fellow with the dark, wavy hair shows up with some regularity in Paula’s work. One must believe he has a real-life counterpart.

In this woodland scene, Mr. Curlyhair’s name is Adam; hers is Sarah. I want a tawse like that.

 

And just to finish for tonight, here is a possible depiction of a blite bus driver assisting the bus drivee to maintain her position during correction.

Not that I ever have required help in keeping a girl upended and bended, but I have to think that, should I ask for it, and the assistance be at hand, there would be no shortage of volunteers.

You sisters love one another that much, I am absolutely certain.

That is all.

Devlin out.

Lucy, You Got Some Splainin To Do!

May 13, 2016 by

23d448cc522a443727a529ea9a482de6

Okay, not that Lucy – our English friend Lucy, who over a month ago posted a wonderful review of Treasure of the Forest Nymphs, its first on Amazon anywhere, and neglected to tell me so I could brag about it to everyone. The very idea!

Anyway, here is Lucy’s five-star take on my latest tome, copied from Amazon UK.

As is always the case with Devlin O’Neill’s books, this is a fun-filled spanking book. It is both a romance and a fairy tale (for adults) set in his own world of Neverwasnia. Each of his books is original and well written. Harlan is the hero. He is a man who revels in spanking, but is never cruel, and ensures all his girls, human or mythical, enjoy the experience. As the adventure unfolds, he meets a special girlfriend to share his journey, goes in search of long lost treasure, encounters danger, and gets help from nymphs and fauns who protect a magical forest. If fantasy and spanking is for you, you’ll enjoy this book. 

Thank you so, so much, Lucy. Now come here this instant, young lady.

The Right Birthday Spanking For Janie

Jun 16, 2015 by

484_paulettegoddardspanked1

It is unfortunate, but true – some men are totally clueless when it comes to giving a birthday spanking. Here, Paulette Goddard does not look so much frightened at what Ray Milland (I think) is planning, as wondering what the heck he hopes to accomplish through all those layers of crinoline.

As it’s Janie’s birthday, I do have to wonder — would I be likely to spank her Ray Milland fashion? I hardly think that likely, since I doubt she wears crinolines very often. Even if she did, they can be pushed up out of the way, Ray!

 

spanking150708_450x331

And I’m absolutely positive I wouldn’t spank her like the bloke in this staircase scene. He appears to have his heart set on smacking her ribcage, whereas I learned at a very early age how to locate a girl’s bottom. I’m sure Janie will appreciate my expertise, should I ever have the opportunity to actually give her a birthday spanking.

This being high summer, and my home being so near a beach, I can’t help thinking that some swimming costumes (that’s what they call swimsuits in England) were designed specifically with young women and birthday spankings in mind. That beach does look pretty deserted, though, so pulling what little costume is there down to completely clear the decks for action would not be out of the question.

And, of course, a birthday spanking should be about smiles. Tab seems to be doing a thorough job on Natalie’s behalf, and she looks ever so appreciative of his efforts. Still, he looks a bit too blasé about the matter, and I’m sure I could put a bit more zing into the sting – just so Janie would not feel at all neglected during this most important of events.

 

elvis-spanking

Ah! Here we go. This is a guy who knew how to spank, on a beach and elsewhere. Even if his acting skills left a lot to be desired, I still admire his style, as well as his ability to get through to the women in his life.

And that’s what a good birthday spanking is all about – reminding a young woman of how important she is and how wonderful was the event that brought her into your life. And for a certain type of girl, nothing says loving like a really warm bottom given by the hand of a guy who adores her.

So happy birthday, Jane Ellen! And many happy returns of that adoring hand, wherever you may find it!

That is all.

Devlin out.

I have yet to see a robin …

Apr 2, 2014 by

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

And this ridiculously long, cold, lonely winter seems determined to hang around as long as possible. Above you will even see what passes for snow in Pensacola. Those stumpy things around the big live oak tree were six-foot palmetto bushes last fall.

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

However! There is hope, because the azaleas are blooming!

 

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Yes, the sun is shining, the leaves are greening, and the pink and white azalea blossoms have dutifully returned to herald spring’s arrival in northwest Floridia. 

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The blooms last quite a long while – several weeks, usually – and I do love the contrast between the creamy whiteness of some with the warm pinkness of others, sometimes on the same bush. Somehow that reminds me of something else I love.

Oh, yeah! Thanks, Pixie.

That is all.
