#SPeekSunday - 8/31/14 - Arrested by Love - "Budget, schmudget" #SpankingRomance #DD


He caught her speeding in a school zone and decided she needed to learn even civil disobedience could have very painful consequences.

Welcome to Sneak Peek Sunday.  For this hop we get to share six paragraphs from a published work or a WIP (work in progress).

My submission for this week is from my 3rd book, Arrested by Love.  A handsome, but strict, police officer  decides a spoiled socialite needs a special lesson in obeying the law.

Tiffany Morgan has been in love with Kyle Sinclair since she was ten years old, when he'd turned her over his knee for attempting to swim in a raging white water river. Though she'd been furious with him at the time, Tiffany never told her family what Kyle did. Instead, she began trailing after him like an annoying younger sister as she tried to gain his attention.

Now, eleven years later, Kyle, a patrol officer, is finding it much more difficult to maintain his distance from the irresistible and vivacious redhead who continues to invent ingenious ways to attract his interest. Though he dismissed her initial attraction to him as infatuation, as she grew-up, his own feelings of desire and protectiveness deepened. So, despite his constant struggle to resist the spirited little minx's lures, Kyle finally has to admit that he is losing the battle--badly.


After Kyle makes it clear to Tiffany that speeding will earn her much more than a ticket from him, he gives into the inevitable and asks her out on a date.  He loves her, but isn't sure he's the right guy for her.  However, he no longer fights the attraction between them as he dates her exclusively, but Tiffany wants more, so she makes her stand, and Kyle makes it clear how her life will change if they get married.  And he persists by asking if she even thought she could live on a budget.


            Tiffany honestly didn't know how to respond to him.  She was furious he thought he could be so high-handed to expect she would simply roll over on her back and let him call the shots.  However, it also pissed her off to acknowledge at the snap of his fingers she would do exactly that.  But to have him think she couldn't be as fiscally responsible as he was, irked her to no end.
            Not sure which bothered her more, his high-handedness or his low opinion of her, she replied to the one that hurt her pride the most.  "Look, Fred Flintstone, I'm not Wilma.  I can work and take care of a family at the same time.  As for managing my money, I can live on whatever budget you give me, and have money left to spare."
            He looked doubtful at that statement, and she really couldn't blame him.  She'd never had to actually control her spending before.  If she wanted something, Daddy gave it to her.  Not a ringing endorsement for financial conscientiousness by any means.  And being the smart-assed male he was, he took her up on her challenge by telling her if she could live for one month on the amount of money he set for her, and at the end of that time actually show him how she had saved the remainder of her salary, without going to daddy for help, he'd ask her to marry him.
            As a proposal, it sucked big time.


Tiffany is an innocent, but she knows she wants Kyle, so sets out a plan to get him, except Kyle has a few requirements of his own that Tiffany will have trouble meeting.

#SatSpanks - 8/30/14 - A Dom's Dilemma - Opting for Silence #BDSM #SpankingRomance


She needed his protection, except he insisted on her honest submission first.

Reading this material at Work could get you spanked.

Welcome to the Saturday Spankings blog hop.  My stories are all M/f with the dominant male determined to protect the woman he cares for and loves, or grows to love, by doing whatever it takes to ensure her safety and continued health.  This includes administering a spanking when she needs one.  

My submission for this week is from my first BDSM novel, A Dom's Dilemma, published by Blushing Books.  I'm picking up exactly where we left off last time.


In this scene, Jim, a former Texan who works as a police detective by day and lives and plays as a Dom by night, is in the Velvet Chains BDSM medical station working with his new submissive, Kelly Franklin.  When Kelly balks, Jim suspects fear, rather than brattiness, is responsible for her reaction.  After giving her repeated opportunities to tell him what's bothering her, he decides to continue with his original agenda.  However, when Kelly discovers he intends to give her an enema, her fear increases exponentially, which validates his suspicions, but doesn't address Kelly's lack of trust or stubborn refusal to obey.  So, after reminding his reluctant sub what BDSM is about, Jim gives her an ultimatum.  Say her safe word or submit.  Kelly agrees to do as he wants, though a persistent inner voice urges her to run away.  Despite Jim's gentleness, once he completes his anal exam, Kelly starts to tremble at the thought of what will come next.


             Bending down, he placed a calming hand on her face.  "Shh.  Deep breath.  Better."  He straightened again to strap down her left leg, so her buttocks were spread for easier access.  The position made her pulse race and heart pound with near panic.  "Easy, sugar," he murmured, rubbing her lower back with long, soothing strokes.  "Relax and breathe, you're safe.  Good girl.  That's it, darlin'.  You're doin' great."
            Kelly knew she acted like a scared little girl, but her every instinct screamed for her to run and hide.  Clenching her hands into fists, she pressed them against her mouth to keep from begging him to stop, knowing he wouldn't unless she told him the truth.  Since that was an impossibility, she either needed to safeword, or bite her lip and keep silent.  Despite the terror eating her up inside, she opted for silence.


Kelly has a past she's not willing to share with anyone.  However, withholding valuable information from a Dom is not a wise course of action for a sub to take.

#FriskyFriday - 8/29/14 - A Simple Misunderstanding - Keeping Secrets is a "no-no" #SpankingRomance #CorbinsBend


It's Frisky Friday!  Yay!  And I'm sharing another excerpt from my new spanking romance in the Corbin's Bend series, A Simple Misunderstanding.

He came to her rescue when she needed him most, almost to lose her when she disobeyed him.


In this scene, which begins Chapter 12, Eleanor Benson (Elly) is due to be released from the hospital, after a five day stay.  Gerald Douglas (Jerry, who is Corbin Bend's vet) has been at her side almost the whole time, but he had to leave the day before for an emergency.  When he called Elly that evening to tell her he was driving back to Denver, she sounded strange on the phone, but insisted he remain in Corbin's Bend, claiming she wanted to go to sleep early. Certain she was not telling him the truth, he pressed a little harder only to have say she had to hang up because a nurse just came in.  Convinced something was up, he calls the nurse's station, but they claim Elly is alone and nothing out of the ordinary has happened.  He stays home as she wanted, but remains ill at ease.  When he arrives at the hospital the next morning, Elly is nearly in a panic, so he demands she sit down and tell him what is bothering her.


She shook her head, her breathing growing rapid and shallow. “Help me get my top on.”
Grasping her wrists, which were no longer bandaged, he held them captive in a gentle but unyielding grip, careful not to hurt her. “Elly, you’re starting to hyperventilate. Now calm down and tell me what’s got you so upset.”
Though she gave another shake of her head, she quieted under his tender restraint. He remembered the way she’d panicked the first time he tried to touch her wrists, so she definitely did trust him more now; however, he wasn’t pleased she was still trying to keep something from him. Something that had frightened her. 

 

Elly has agreed to go home with Jerry, but he suspects she's not telling him the truth, and lying is something for which he has zero tolerance.


M/F Domestic Discipline in Colorado.

Blurb:

Though Arthur and Eleanor Benson have been practicing domestic discipline for three months since their wedding, he insists moving to Corbin's Bend, where domestic discipline is the norm rather than the exception, will revitalize their marriage. Elly has doubts, but since Arthur is the undisputed head of their household, they move. However, once Arthur becomes immersed in a community where spanking is not only permitted, but encouraged, his personality undergoes a dramatic change. Accusing his submissive wife of being lazy, disorganized and disobedient, he employs creative methods of pain and humiliation to mold Elly from the imperfect woman he married into the perfect woman he desires. And Elly finds herself a virtual prisoner in her own home, accountable only to the man who rules her life with a cane.

In his years as a vet, Jerry Douglas has seen what abuse does to animals, and he recognizes those same signs in Elly Benson during her daily escape to the dog park with her tiny poodle. Jerry steadfastly supports the tenets of domestic discipline and enjoys the freedom Corbin's Bend offers its residents, but he remains fiercely protective of anyone in need of a champion. And when he witnesses evidence of harsh handling, his instinct is to rush in and rescue. Problem is Elly Benson is a married and consenting adult who insists all her bruises and welts are nothing more than a simple misunderstanding between her and her husband, until the day Arthur Benson takes his authority and discipline one-step too far, endangering Elly's life.

Casting - A Simple Misunderstanding - Lights, Camera, Action #Spanking Romance #CorbinsBend #FSOG


Having your novel optioned, and being given creative control over the casting is almost every novelist's dream.  But there are downfalls.  I've seen the trailer for Fifty Shades of Grey, several times. Unfortunately, every time I watch it, I shake my head.  Why?  Because those actors, as good as they might be, aren't even close to the internal vision I have for Christian and Anastasia.  I'm not saying they aren't perfectly cast, I'm simply saying they aren't a match for my vision.  The same would hold true for a novel I wrote.  Even more, I'd say.  However, I did give it a whirl.  If you're interested in seeing who I would cast as Elly, Jerry and Arthur, hop over to the Corbin's Bend blog or The Blushing Books Blog. The actors aren't an exact match for my vision, are they anywhere close to yours?

But before you go, scroll down and watch the Fifty Shades of Grey movie trailer, if you haven't seen it, and leave your thoughts on that as well.

#HornyHDay - 8/27/14 - Acting Lessons - The Age-old Dance of Lovers #SpankingRomance #MFRWAuthor


Splendorous things can happen when the mind and body are in tune.

This material is NSFW (Not Safe For Work). If you’re not over 18, please explore elsewhere.

Welcome back to Horny Hump Day, though I regret to inform you this is the last Horny Hump Day we'll be doing.  This three sentence hop was one of its kind, but the administrator has announced she's decided to end it after two years.  Though I'm sorry to see it come to an end, I understand her decision.  Throughout the run of this hop, we've attempted to provide you with tiny erotic tidbits of the most sexy and sensuous moments in our books. Just 3 sentences.  And boy is that hard to do, sometimes....


Next week, I will participate in MFRW's (Marketing for Romance Writers) Wednesday hop called Book Hooks.  To participate in that hop, all you have to do is become a member of MFRW and list your blog on the Book Hooks page.  Membership is free and the organization offers a lot of benefits.  Another Wednesday Hop is WipItUp Wednesday, which allows published books as well as Works In Progress.  You can find out more about either hop by clicking its logo on my sidebar.  I'll also leave my list of Horny Hump Day posts up for another month or so. 

My submission for this final Horny Hump Day is from my 5th novel, Acting Lessons.


He was a strict and demanding college professor turned professional director who excelled at giving acting lessons.  She was his shy and uncertain former student who became a professional actress under his tutelage.  They fell in love, married, and won two Tony Awards before tragedy struck and a simple kiss ripped them apart.

After a six month separation, Peter Thorton decides to take matters into his own hands by making his famous wife, Kate, an offer she wouldn't refuse.  Plainly put, he wants her back and he intends to do whatever is necessary to achieve his goal, even if it means giving his stubborn, willful leading lady a daily reminder over his knee that she promised to obey him.


In this scene, which occurs in chapter six, Peter Thorton has just finished giving his wife, Kate, a relatively mild spanking for defying his instructions, and is preparing to make love to her for the first time in over two years.  Peter adores Kate, but he's not above teasing her a little before giving her what she wants and needs as he gently nibbles her into a writhing mass of desire.  However, given her injured knee, he also wants to ensure nothing they do aggravates her torn meniscus, so he gently restrains her when she tries to counter-thrust against his pleasuring.  Keeping his hand on her thigh as a reminder, he warns her if she moves, she'll get a swat, then he makes love to her.  Since they haven't been together for nearly six months, Peter enters Kate slowly to give her body time to adjust.


            The intrusion burned a little, but not enough to dim her pleasure.  All the same, Peter held still, giving Kate's body time to adjust for a moment before he started to thrust and withdraw.  Her back arching with pleasure, Kate closed her eyes as Peter swept her into the age-old dance of lovers.


Peter is finally where he belongs, and now that he's there, he has no wish to leave.  And we've had a wonderfully sexy dance together, but now it's time to say good-night and good-bye to this quirky, wonderful hop.

#SPeekSunday - 8/24/14 - Deadly Enchantment - Do you want me to? #ParanormalRomance #Shapeshifters


An unhappy shape shifter can be a dangerous companion....

For Sneak Peek Sunday authors share six paragraphs from a published work or a WIP (work in progress).


My excerpt for this week is from my 2nd book, Deadly Enchantment.  A shapeshifting wizard romance set in Victorian England published by New Concepts Publishing, 




In this snippet, which occurs in the middle of the second chapter, Dominic Westcroft has returned from London to discover his sister has invited several young women to his home, so he can select a new bride.  What neither he nor his sister suspects, however, is that one of the women is actually his deceased bride's sister.  Tormented by guilt over his wife's tragic and brutal death, Dominic has no intention of ever marrying again.  However, when his show of temper accidentally reveals one of their guests possesses magical abilities she's trying to keep hidden, he invites the ladies join him for dinner, so he can rout her out.

His resulting magical show ends up causing a few of the women to cry out in dismay, so Serena calls an end to the charade by revealing herself as the woman with whom he had psychically linked a few hours ago.  Serena knows she's taking a huge risk by standing up to Westcroft, but she believes doing so will put an end to his magical shenanigans without revealing her true identity. However, when Westcroft intimates he knows her secret, her chair magically rises into the air.  Realizing she can't appear weak before a predator, Serena calls Westcroft's bluff. He surprises Serena with his concession, but when he lowers her chair back to the ground, the other frightened women inform him they wish to leave the manor that night.  Rather than give in to their pleas, he addresses the quailing group in a low, melodic voice that suggests they all get a good night's rest, and he'd discuss their leaving in the morning.  When the women shuffle out of the room in a daze, Serena demands to know what Westcroft did to them.  He admits to having adjusted their memories a bit, so when they awaken the experience would seem more like a dream.


            “Until they wake up hungry, that is.  You didn’t even give them supper.”
            “No, I didn’t, did I?  How remiss of me.  Are you hungry, Miss …?”
            “Blanford,” Serena supplied without hesitation, totally reassured now that her disguise remained intact. 
            “Are you hungry, Miss Blanford?”
            “No, thank you.  I should like to leave now as well.  Will you cloud my mind as you did theirs?”
            “Do you want me to?”


Dominic Westcroft is determined to uncover his young guest's secrets even if it means keeping the others around as a ruse.

#SatSpanks - 8/23/14 - Mortal Illusions - A Measure of Affection #ParanormalRomance #Vampires


Yes, today is my birthday, but even though it's also Saturday Spankings, there'll be none for me, thank you!


Show me an angry vampire, and I'll show you an unhappy mortal.

NOTE: Reading this material at Work could get you spanked.

Welcome to the Saturday Spankings blog hop.  My stories are all M/f with the dominant male determined to protect the woman he cares for and loves, or grows to love, by doing whatever it takes to ensure her safety and continued health.  This includes administering a spanking when she needs one.  

My submission for this week is from my 1st book, Mortal Illusions. A vampire romance published by New Concepts Publishing, Mortal Illusions is currently the first in a series of 3 books.  Its sequel, Fatal Desire, is currently being revised.

When Claire Daniels discovers Germaine St. Justine is a vampire, she sets a plan in motion to convince him to cure her brother of AIDS.  Though an innocent in sexual relations, Claire is savvy enough to realize the best way to secure Germaine's support is to enter into an intimate relationship with him.  However, having a vampire take you to bed isn't quite the same as sleeping with the boy next door.  There are complications. And Germaine is dominant enough to add a few more Claire hadn't expected.



In this segment, Germaine and Claire are leaving the Manhattan restaurant, where he'd just proposed to her, just before they were accosted by Claire's former boy friend, Harry.  Harry made some alarming accusations against Germaine, and Claire is attempting to work truth from fiction through in her mind as she carefully questions her dominant vampire lover, who is now her fiance.


            “Oh.  Then Sybill and Arthur aren't really in love with each other?”
            Germaine shrugged, but Claire felt a wave of raw strength flow over her fingers and knew his attempt at nonchalance was merely a facade for a much stronger emotion.
            “Some measure of affection exists between them, I suppose,” Germaine allowed.  “Sybill has professed a certain fondness for Arthur, but no, they are not lovers in the true sense of the word.  Arthur hired Sybill to serve his needs both in and out of bed.  In return, he has promised to see her mortal needs met as well.”
            “Then why did she tell Harry she'd been tortured?”
            “The question is why was she speaking to Harry at all?”


Claire is discovering vampires live by different rules than those governing the mortal world, and she's afraid she's fallen in love with a man who will only break her heart.

Frisky Friday - 8/22/14 - Acting Lessons - Kate is not a morning person #KissMeKate #SpankingRomance


Peter loved Kate with all his being, but that didn't mean he'd tolerate an ultimatum from her.

Welcome to another offering for Frisky Friday, where we hope you're getting as excited about the weekend as we are.

My submission for this week is from my 5th book, and newest release, Acting Lessons.

 He was a strict and demanding college professor turned professional director who excelled at giving acting lessons.  She was his shy and uncertain former student who became a professional actress under his tutelage.  They fell in love, married, and won two Tony Awards before tragedy struck and a simple kiss ripped them apart.

After a six month separation, Peter Thorton decides to take matters into his own hands by making his famous wife, Kate, an offer she wouldn't refuse.  Plainly put, he wants her back and he intends to do whatever is necessary to achieve his goal, even if it means giving his stubborn, willful leading lady a daily reminder over his knee that she promised to obey him.


In this scene, which occurs at the beginning of Chapter Four, Peter Thorton is attempting to get his wife ready for a trip to a college camp ground in upper New York, where they will appear together in a summer stock production of "Kiss Me Kate." Kate has agreed to help Peter teach the drama students who have auditioned and been selected personally by him for the course he is teaching.    Kate isn't sure she can trust Peter with her heart again, since she believes he's been unfaithful to her, but she's never stopped loving him. And though Domestic Discipline originally played a part in their marriage, their last two years together had them living like polite strangers sharing the same house. Though things are far from perfect between them now, they are temporarily reconciled, which gives Peter great hope for the summer before them.


            The next morning, Peter rallied the troops before dawn.  Kate groaned in protest, but the smack he gave her for wasting time got her up and moving far more quickly than she would have otherwise.  Even so, she wasn't getting ready fast enough for him, so he took charge, as usual.
            Efficiency personified, Peter gave Kate her shot, wrapped her knee, helped her dress, and had her seated at the dining room table before she had opened her eyes.
            "I want to make as few stops as possible, darling, so eat a good breakfast while I check my e-mail and attend to any last-minute details before we leave."  Placing a quick kiss on the top of her hair, he strode out of the room.
            Kate cradled her pounding head in her hands.  Being married to an energetic whirlwind was not only exhausting, it caused headaches.
            "Cheer up, chica," Consuelo soothed.  "At least Mr. Peter is in a more agreeable mood this morning."
            Kate sighed.  He certainly hadn't been in an agreeable mood when she'd returned from her shopping trip and meeting yesterday.
            He'd met her at the door, took note of her new hairstyle and packages, and crossed his arms.  He'd let her leave without an argument, but he hadn't been pleased about it.


Kate met with her former boyfriend yesterday, which Peter allowed with thinly disguised displeasure.  Even so, Kate knew that his stretched tolerance was a huge step in the right direction.

#HornyHDay - 8/20/14 - A Dom's Dilemma - Pleasure is in they eye of the beholder #BDSM #SpankingRomance



Wanting and receiving can be two entirely different things.

This material is NSFW (Not Safe For Work). If you’re not over 18, please explore elsewhere.

Welcome back to Horny Hump Day, a regular Wednesday feature! In this blog loop, we hope to provide you with tiny erotic tidbits of the most sexy and sensuous moments in our books. Just 3 sentences.  And boy is that hard to do, sometimes....

My post for this Wednesday is from my 4th book, A Dom's Dilemma, an erotic BDSM/spanking novel published by Blushing Books.  Kelly and Jim, the two main characters, were secondary characters in Arrested by Love.  Though this story stands on its own, if you read Arrested by Love, you'll most likely recognize some of the scenes, since we see a little bit of Kyle and Tiffany in this book, too.


For this selection on Horny Hump Day, I'm sharing scene in A Dom's Dilemma near the beginning of Chapter Six.  Jim and Kelly are just starting to get to know each other when Jim discovers Kelly is still sore from the enema and examination he gave her a half-hour ago.  She knows that means he will want to examine and treat her, but she really wants to avoid him touching her back there again, if it's at all possible.  It isn't, but Jim compromises by making the experience as pleasurable as he can.  However, he's a Dom, so there are some rules Kelly will need to follow.  Rules he fully expects her to break.


            Smiling inwardly at her contented expression, Jim continued to slowly move his finger in and out of her.  Partly to make sure the medicine reached as far as he wanted, and partly to discover if she might find the activity pleasurable.
            Within seconds, her back and tummy muscles tightened, so he used his thumb to tease the small bud attempting to hide from him.


Jim is into control, not pain, and he wants Kelly to find pleasure in everything they do together, but the Dom in him insists upon taking the lead.  Things will happen his way, and on his terms.  End of story.  Even so, Jim finds a great deal of pleasure in Kelly's response, and her trust is of paramount importance to him.


M/F, Kinky happenings in rural Connecticut.

A Dom's Dilemma is available for sale at Blushing Books.  If you'd like to read more, I'm providing a 3 chapter preview on my web site's Spanking Romance page.

Now available on Amazon both for the Kindle and in Paperback!

I hope you enjoyed this sneak preview. Your comments are encouraged. Please stop by the  Horny Hump Day blog site  to get a peek at some of the other author's fine offerings.

Guest Post - Thianna D. - Breathe Each Other In - Final Book in the All They Ever Needed trilogy #DD #GayRomance #Spanking


Thianna D. is here to share an excerpt from her newest release, "Breathe Each Other In," the third and final book in the All They Ever Needed Trilogy.

For Logan & Christian, one thing makes all the difference

While the outside world might try to undermine them, Logan and Christian’s relationship just grows stronger. In this, the final part of the All They Ever Needed trilogy, their lives take an unexpected turn.

Christian takes to heart everything he learns from Logan’s father and as he and Logan go forward in their DD relationship, he finds that he is willing to not just take on the mantle of Head of House, but to embrace it. With Logan graduating from college, Christian takes the next logical step and asks his boyfriend to move in.

Even with the stress of student teaching and trying to figure out what to do after graduation, Logan leaps at the chance to live with the man he loves. As the pressure of graduation begins to get to him, the only thing to keep him grounded is the amazing man at his side.

Those closest to them make huge changes in their own lives and when an unexpected job offer lands in Logan’s lap, the two have to make a life altering decision. No matter which way they go, they need to give something up. Play it safe and stay home or accept the job and move away from their families? When it comes to decision time, there is one thing they are not willing to part with. That one thing makes all the difference in the world.


Enjoy this little domestic discipline discussion between Christian and Logan’s father:

“Have you considered how you are going to start?” Gregory asked as they removed the last of the destroyed siding from his car.

“Start what?” Christian asked, his mind on the large piece of scrap metal in his hands.

“Your DD relationship with my son.”

Surprised, Christian placed the metal onto the heap and shook his head. “No. He won’t be home until June, so I figured we had plenty of time to figure that out.”

“True,” he said, walking around the car. “On the other hand, if you start before he comes home, you might find it easier to settle into your role.”

Well, there was a layer he hadn’t considered. “How do you do it long distance?” The confusion in his voice was evident, even to him. But Gregory never made him feel stupid for asking a question.

“It’s doing the same things. Setting boundaries and making sure he sticks to them. You will also want to choose a disciplinary action to use if he doesn’t.”

“What am I supposed to do, make him write lines?” Christian asked in amusement before remembering that Kimberley had mentioned she had to write lines a lot in the beginning of her and Gregory’s marriage.

“Possibly. Or make him stand in a corner and think about what he did.”

“How will I know he did it?”

“You stay on the phone with him. Believe me. Neither Kim nor Logan are good at covering their emotions. His voice will give him away. Plus, I know my son. If you tell him to stand in a corner, he might ask why, but if you insist, he’ll do it. Of course, you won’t see the glare he sends at the phone when he does so,” he added in amusement.

Spluttering a laugh, Christian walked over and crashed onto one of the sofas. “It all seems so simple and so impossibly difficult at the same time.”

“Yep. Both are true. And strangely enough, until you actually have to discipline him for something and he accepts it, you won’t really notice a difference. It will feel like you’re going through the motions. But that moment will come where you go, ‘ah, shit, I’m in charge.’ And it will change you in a really valid way. You’ll feel it, Logan will feel it, and your relationship will be better for it even though it felt like hell for those few minutes or hours.” Walking over, Gregory grabbed a couple sodas from the fridge and tossed him one. “And at the beginning you’ll second guess yourself a lot, Christian. It comes with the territory. But that first time the two of you butt heads?” He shook his head. “That moment when you wonder if you should continue down this road or give in? When you stick to your guns, not in a rough, mean way, but by continually plowing ahead, gently but firmly until he relents; that’s the moment you know what you got yourself into. And it feels amazing and a bit overwhelming. But most of all, it just feels right.”

Shaking his head, Christian drank half his soda quickly. “I think we’re on the right road and Logan is thrilled, but I’ve never done this before and—”

“Haven’t you?” he asked in amusement. “I saw you with my son in New York, Christian. You took control and you guided him out of his self-recrimination faster than I could have.”

“He still had you spank him.” The moment the words were out of his mouth, Christian regretted them. He never meant to bring them up, especially in that annoyed tone.

Chuckling, Gregory nodded as he leaned back. “Yes, I did. Do you know why?”

“He explained that he asked you to.”

“He did, and the two of you hadn’t gotten to the point where he could ask you.”

Startled, Christian looked up at him.

“Logan needed to let that go and I was the only one he thought could take that pain away. Believe me, Christian, those thoughts are changing. He sees you more as head of his house than he even did a couple months ago and he’s quite happy to have you do it. No matter if his ass gets paddled for it or not.”
