Book Hooks - 9/20/17 - Acting Lessons - Kate admits she has a "frover" #KissMeKate #DD


He'd taught her how to act in college, now he intended to teach her how to behave.

Welcome back to Book Hooks, a regular Wednesday feature! In this blog loop, we hope to provide you with some tantalizing tidbits in our books.

My submission for this week's Book Hooks 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 near the start of chapter seven. Peter is taking Kate to see her doctor after she'd injudiciously injured her knee in a pique. She's seated on his lap in the back of his limousine, and they've just resolved an issue regarding the dissolution of their divorce after they had finished making love for the first time since their separation. And, now, Peter wants to know about the huge sparkling diamond she's wearing on her left hand. A diamond he didn't give her.


            "What are you thinking?" Peter asked, breaking into her thoughts. When she started to shake her head, his hold on her hip tightened. "I never want you to fear being honest with me."
Meeting his concerned gaze, Kate wrapped her fingers around his, then gasped when Peter gripped and raised her left hand. "So, what's the deal with this rock on your finger?"
Kate gazed at the sparkling stone and gave a small wince. The ring was rather gaudy, but she hadn't wanted to offend Thomas by refusing his gift, and her finger had felt naked without her wedding band. "A present from Thomas for our one-month anniversary," she admitted, watching the light play against the handsomely-cut, but garish stone. Quartz most likely.
"Thomas?" he repeated with an arched brow. "Care to tell your husband who Thomas is?"
Drawing her hand from his, Kate twisted the ring. "Well, I said I hadn't made love with anyone else, but I didn't say I hadn't dated."
"All right. Tell me about him."
"Now?" she asked, not bothering to hide her surprise. Peter had never asked about her past boyfriends before, probably because she'd never had any. Not serious ones.
"Why not now? We have time to kill." He checked his watch. "At least twenty minutes. If all you did was date the guy, your story shouldn't take that long."
She winced. "Well, we did more than date. I just didn't have sex with him. We had a sort of everything, but … kind of deal going."
"I see. Did you love him? And you'll notice I used the past tense in that question."
Kate continued to twist her ring until Peter laid his hand over hers. "I liked him. He was a polite, considerate, and attentive partner, as well as attractive. I enjoyed dating him, but I can't say I ever loved him. We were 'frovers,' I guess, except more friends than lovers."
"Really?" At her nod, he slipped the 'gift' from her finger and held the stone up to the light. "This is an awfully expensive piece to give a lover, darling, let alone a 'frover.'"
Frowning, she plucked the ring back to examine it more closely. "No…. It can't possibly be real. That would be insane."
"Actually, although I hate to admit it, I think your boyfriend's anniversary present is real and rare. We can have the jewel appraised to be sure, but from its size, I suspect your 'frover' is toting around a huge hard-on for you. I gather he's loaded?"
Kate recalled Thomas's home and clothing and said, "I never gave it much thought, but yeah, I guess so. He's certainly well-off, if not Kennedy wealthy." She put the ring on again, choosing the right hand this time.
"Better, although I'd prefer you wore your wedding band. Did you get rid of it?"
"No! Of course not. I keep it in the jewelry box on my dresser. I'll pick it up when I pack for our trip."
He bent forward to nip her ear. "I'll consider that a promise." Leaning back, he stroked her hip as if he sought to remind her she still belonged to him. "So, did you and lover-boy have a standing arrangement of sorts? See each other every Friday and Saturday night and return to the real world on Sunday?"
She laughed. "No. Our dates weren't that steady or regular. He'd check his calendar and schedule a get-together for us about a week in advance."
"Ah, a true romantic, and a spontaneous 'frover,' too," Peter remarked, his tone bordering on snide. When Kate smacked his shoulder, he raised one eyebrow. "So, when was this passionate Lothario due to take you out next, may I ask?"
Kate thought back to their last conversation. "We had an arrangement to meet Thursday night."
"Tonight?" Peter asked, his expression reflecting an unusual interest, which caught Kate off guard until she realized what he'd said.
"Oh, shit. Yes, I was supposed to call him yesterday to confirm, then meet him later at the Rockefeller skating rink," she muttered, worrying the ring on her finger again. "I never called him. I totally forgot. I'll bet he's worried sick and furious with me."
Peter curved his fingers around the nape of Kate's neck in a soothing, yet possessive gesture. "Easy, sweetheart. I'm sure 'frovers' can't get furious. It's not in their job description."
"Funny man," Kate said making a face at him. "I didn't bring my cell with me. It probably needs charging anyway. Let me borrow yours, okay?"
"What? So, you can call your ex-boyfriend? I'm a lenient and understanding man, darling. But trust me, not that understanding."


Despite Peter's possessiveness, Kate doesn't feel guilty about dating Thomas. He was her staunch supporter when she was in sore need of someone. She'd made no promises to Thomas, though she knew he expected to marry her once her divorce was final. Problem is she'd never fallen out of love with Peter, and, now, due to her own shortsightedness,  she has an angry "frover" to deal with.
M/F, DD and a staged production of Kiss Me, Kate.

#WIPitUP - 9/20/17 - Learning to be Little - Kelly gets fed dessert #Ageplay #SpankingRomance


WIP: Work in progress.  WIP it up Wednesday is a hop where writers share portions of the project they're working on with readers.  I really like the idea because it allows me to share something that's still in the creative stage as well as work behind the scenes as a prompt to keep me writing.

The WIP I've chosen to share today is tentatively titled "Learning to be Little"  It is a story about Kelly Franklin's first immersion into BDSM with a Daddy Dom.

Because of some feedback I've received, I want to stress that this book begins in the present with Kelly seated on her Dom's, Jim Evans, lap directly after "A Dom's Dilemma," the book which introduces readers to Kelly and Jim's evolving relationship. In Dilemma, Jim asks Kelly how she became involved in BDSM, so she tells him about Graham White, the gentlemanly stranger who rescued her from the streets. After hearing a little about her past, Jim better understands the sort of relationship his girl needs and is prepared to be the stern protector she requires. Then Kelly receives a threat from a previous Dom that endangers her life. Jim, a police detective, shoots the transgressor and after reassuring a terrified Kelly that's she's safe, proposes marriage. Still reeling from a day that included an unexpected proposal on top of a murderous attack on her life, an exhausted Kelly takes a memory tour back to her past and the more carefree days she shared with Graham.

Learning to be Little is my first attempt at depicting the dynamics of age play, and because it occurs in Kelly's past with her first, but not last, Dom, it is also a little different from other age play stories available today. However, I hope readers who enjoy age play and D/s will find their journey into Kelly's past an entertaining, sometimes funny, sometimes poignant, adventure. Though the manuscript has been accepted by Blushing Books, until it's published, I consider it a WIP.

The mock cover I used for Camp NaNo
I'm continuing where I left off last time. As an only child born to two only children, a young and precocious Kelly Franklin seeks out her Daddy whenever something frightens her. Unfortunately, her Daddy isn't available to soothe her and two strange men were hurting her mother. Scared, Kelly remains as quiet as a mouse in her parent's closet until the police pull her out. Twelve years later, Kelly still suffers nightmares from that time and finds herself walking the streets. When she is approached by a "gentlemanly stranger", who invites her to dinner, Kelly accompanies her new "customer" into a fancy restaurant with well-founded suspicion and a bit of an attitude that could get her into trouble if she isn't careful. However, despite her uncertainty over the gentleman's intentions, Kelly does her best to do what he wants.


"Bring the young lady pudding, Andrew, but serve it to me, please."
"Yes, sir," Andrew replied and left without so much as a blink of surprise.
Considering his request a bit unusual, Kelly asked, "Do you come here often?"
"On occasion, yes. They know what I prefer."
"Apparently so."
"As you will, too, if we choose to continue our association." He paused when Andrew set a china bowl of chocolate pudding before him, along with a spoon. "Thank you." After the waiter left, Mr. White gazed pointedly at Kelly. "Scoot your chair around the table, child, so you're closer to me."
She gave him a slight scowl but obeyed. Once she was positioned the way he wanted, he dipped the silver utensil into the pudding and held it to her lips. The moment she opened her mouth, he fed her the first spoonful. The confection was rich and chocolaty, and if he preferred to feed it to her, she'd play along, though she suspected he possessed some sort of father complex.
"While you eat, I shall continue to ask more questions."
Given this was all on his nickel, Kelly agreed without an argument.
"Where do you live?"
That drew her up. Did she really want this man, who ordered her food, made her wear a napkin under her chin, cut up her meat, and insisted on feeding her dessert, to know where she slept? Frowning, she hesitated to answer him. She could lie, but, if she did and he caught her in the fib, she imagined he would grow quite angry. And she didn't want that, either.
"Are you afraid what I might do with that information?"
"A little," she confessed.
"I can assure you I only mean to discover how far we need to travel in order to collect any belongings you may wish to bring with you.
"I don't have much, but why would I need to collect any of my things?"
"All in good time, my dear. All in good time."




Graham White is definitely "auditioning" Kelly to see if she's a likely candidate for him to bring home.

Guest Post - 9/18/17 - All They Ever Needed - Thianna Durston - Blog Tour #Gay #MM #DD

Today, we're participating in Thianna Durston's re-release blog tour for her wonderful gay men Domestic Discipline romance series "All They Ever Needed." I'll let Thianna take it away...


Hello! And welcome to the Release Tour for the rewritten and rereleased All They Ever Needed trilogy. If you haven’t read Logan & Christian’s tale, this is a perfect opportunity to do so. The series is available as separate novels and as a boxed set. They should be read in order.

Kathryn likes to ask questions of her guest posters. There are some great questions.

If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your latest book? *Laughs* Kind of did. I got the rights back to All They Ever Needed in Spring 2017. All three novels have been rewritten and tweaked. I got rid of the stuff that bothered me while keeping the charm of the original novels.

What genres do you write besides M/M Domestic Discipline Romance? Oh, I write all over the board. From M/M to M/F, romance to sci-fi, metaphysics to BDSM, paranormal to contemporary. I also write Inspirational Romance every once in a while. It all depends on the pseudonym. Under Thianna Durston, I write M/M Romance with a hint of spice (okay, so sometimes there’s more than a hint *wink*). There are 2 domestic discipline series, BDSM, contemporary, paranormal, action/suspense, vampire cowboys, and even a holiday book or two. I write like I read – just about everything under the sun :D

Are you a plotter or a pantser? I used to be a pantser – All They Ever Needed was written purely from sitting down and writing, without knowing where I was going. However, I’ve changed the way I write. Now, it’s a wonderful blend of inspiration and basic outlining. Once I can outline a book, I don’t hit writer’s block. Plus, I can create more complex storylines with multiple subplots. I love it.

What is the most you have written in one day? Ready for this? 22,000 words. I was writing one of the challenge months and on one day, I reached just over 22k. That month I topped 300k. Usually my days are more like 5000 words.

What are your current projects? *looks at projects and blanches – soooo many.* I’m working at finishing my Drakyl Ranch & The Shift series, redoing Pillar in the Snow as a full-length novel with new characters and a different backdrop, a new adult Sci-Fi trilogy of which the 1st book is written and the other two are outlined and plotted, a mainstream military meets contemporary fantasy series of which the 1st book is written, the second is plotted, and the other two novels have the basics down, and I’m working on my art because I have a young adult series which I want to bring out in graphic novel format – so I’m perfecting the characters.

Who designed your cover? I did. I created two completely different designs and had the fans of my works vote on them. So I might have designed them, but they chose them. I’m happy with the result :)

Are there any new authors that have grasped your interest? They aren’t ‘new’ but I love their work so much that I grasp any new book they have out.

Jordan L. Hawk writes m/m paranormal, mostly historical, romance. (though she’s got a kick-ass contemporary paranormal too.) Her writing is simply SUPERB. I don’t read horror as a rule, but her Whyborne & Griffin series was so good, I chose to leave the light on overnight when I bought the first three books because I haaaaad to finish it. I could go on and on about her Hexworld series. Seriously good writing.

Heidi Cullinan writes m/m contemporary romance for the most part.

Madeleine Ribbon is a relatively ‘new to me’ author. She writes a m/m contemporary fantasy romance series called Faire Folk. It’s about a faire that’s run by magic that goes between our world and somewhere else. I’m calmly (or trying to be) waiting for the next in the series.

Where do you write? I live in a basement apartment. It’s one large space. So my bedroom sits on one side and my ‘office’ on the other. I have a long desk with my computer supplies and my bookshelves behind me. It’s a wonderful spot.

When do you write, morning or night? Whenever the mood strikes. I’m not one of those people who writes better at one time of the day. I’ve written early morning, afternoon, evening, and in a few instances at 2am when I woke up with a character chattering in my head and wanted to get it all down before I went back to sleep.

Can you share a little of your current work with us?  Sure can! Beware, this is NSFW ;)

Excerpt:
“Sorry,” he grunted as he realized what he was doing. He moved to climb off, but Logan stopped him.
“It’s okay,” Logan panted. “Did it not feel good?”
“It felt great,” Christian admitted, kissing him and moaning when Logan’s hips lifted a little. “I want more, Logan, I don’t know how, or what, to do. You’re a man. It’s different.”
Smiling, Logan leaned forward and pecked him on the lips. “Same erogenous zones, Christian. You stroke some slightly different.” Pausing, he seemed to assess the situation. “Since this is new, you feel more comfortable in the dominant position?”
Unsure, Christian sat back. “I don’t know about that. I mean, with Kelli I was always the one who wanted more. With you?” He grinned sheepishly. “It’s amazing to be with someone who actively wants more.”
“Well,” Logan returned, “since this is all new for you, let’s take it nice and slow. We don’t have to go skin to skin yet. Instead, let me show you how good a dry hump can feel.”
Christian raised an eyebrow. “I know how a dry hump feels.”
“Against another cock?”
Heat rushed into his face. “Uhh, guess not.”
Looking as though he was fighting a grin, Logan nodded to the spot next to him. “Game? Lie back and let’s come in our pants.”
“Romantic you’re not.” Christian snorted, his body shaking with laughter.
 “Oh, you want romance?” Logan’s eyes twinkled. “Sorry, shall I put on some sappy music, buy you roses, and say platitudes in your ear about how your stubby blond hair appears like tinsel sort of and how—”
 “Shut up.” Christian laughed, once again reminded how easy it was to be with Logan. He had never felt that comfortable with someone. “You’re an ass.”
“Well, I do have one,” Logan agreed, reaching around behind Christian and patting his behind. “And so do you. A nice tight one it is too.” He squeezed.
A moan escaped Christian’s lips as once again thoughts of Logan spanking him filled his head.
 “You like that, Christian?” Logan’s voice took on a deeper timber, which made Christian’s heart beat faster. “Do you like having your ass touched and fondled?” He massaged both cheeks, which made Christian pant. He wanted to say no, to change the subject, but found it difficult as it felt so damned good. “Mmm, you are a good boy, aren’t you?” Suddenly Logan’s lips were at his ear. “What else do you like?” He tapped his ass lightly. “Tell me and I can make you feel good.”
Whimpering, Christian trembled. He wanted to say it, expose his fantasy, but was hanging on the edge, too unsure. “Do you like to be spanked, Christian?” Once the question was whispered into his ear, he could no longer hold it in.
 “I want to be spanked.” Freezing, as his admission was loud in the space, his eyes flashed open and he looked into Logan’s eyes. He half expected to see either amusement or disgust in them. Instead, he saw desire, want, and need. His cock grew harder.
 “Have you ever been spanked?” Logan asked quietly, firmly, in such a way he couldn’t not answer.
 “No. But I’ve fantasized about it my entire life. When you smacked my ass yesterday?” Christian gulped. “Damn, but I thought I would come right then.”
A slow smile lit up Logan’s face. “I would be honored to hand you your first spanking. I bet I could make it good.”
Heat rushed through Christian’s veins. Logan offered to give him the one thing he had always wanted. Should he take it? Shaking aside the naysayers in his head, he nodded. “Please, Logan. I’ve always wanted to know how it felt.”
 “Bare-handed or belt?”
His jaw dropped.
“I don’t have anything else with me.”
Realizing that Logan knew more than he expected, he cleared his throat. “What’s the difference?”
“The sting in the snap. Plus some people have an affinity for leather or skin to skin contact.”
Trembling, he whispered, “Bare-handed.” That had been his earliest fantasy, to have a bare palm smack his ass.
 “All right. With or without your pants?” While he talked, Logan continued to massage his ass cheeks and Christian barely was able to hold himself still.
“Umm…” Skin to skin was what he wanted, but taking off his pants? Was that a good idea?
“It’s up to you. You’ll still feel it over your jeans, and if you aren’t sure, it might be an easier entrance into spanking.”
Deciding he would ask Logan about that comment later, he stepped back off the sofa, making Logan’s arms drop to his side. Taking a deep breath, he unbuttoned his jeans and pushed them down, knowing his hard-on showed through his briefs.
“All right, over my lap,” Logan said, scooting toward the front of the sofa.
Grinning at the full fantasy unfolding before him, Christian bent over his lap, chuckling as Logan pushed him further so that his ass stuck up in the air. “I knew you were a kinky Santa.”
Logan tapped a few times on his ass cheeks and chuckled. “This is about as kinky as it gets for me, but I do enjoy spanking.”
Smack!
A gasp left Christian’s lips as warmth spread across his right cheek. Swat! With each hit, Logan’s hand hit a slightly different area and warmth shot out from each blow.
With his hands and feet on the ground, Christian moaned with each hit. Damn but this was nice, so much better than he imagined.
When a particularly hard swing made him grunt in both pleasure and pain, a strange little cry left his lips as Logan went back to massaging. “Still okay?” Logan asked quietly.
 “Yes,” Christian panted. “Better than my fantasies.”
 “That’s good to hear.” The smile was evident in Logan’s voice. “Now, I have a suggestion, but it would include touching, which I don’t know if you’re ready for. It’s called an erotic spanking and would include both spanking and touch. I promise to keep my fingers on top of the material, but won’t do it unless you agree.”
Logan wanted to touch him, possibly stroke his cock. Oh god, how Christian wanted that. He wanted to feel Logan touching him, though he didn’t have any idea why he would combine it with spanking. “Do it,” he said in short breaths, unwilling to back off from the pleasure he was experiencing.
“All right.”
Whack!
That was the hardest one yet and even as Christian winced at the pain, the heat spread and pleasure sizzled along his skin. The pressure intensified with each swing and when Christian wondered if he would need to have Logan stop, he did. Everything changed. Strong fingers stroked between his legs over his underwear. They rubbed over his anus, around and on his perineum, and massaged his balls.
“Oh, fuck!” Christian gasped, arching a little. That was something nobody had ever done before, not even himself except while washing—never for the feelings it might provide.
Those wonderful strong fingers went back, rubbing directly over that wonderful patch of skin between his scrotum and his anus, making him grunt in pleasure. Then they trailed up and around his asshole, making tiny little circles. “Oh, god, oh, god,” Christian chanted, feeling as though he was in a fantasy. Surely reality could not feel that good?

Heat Rating: High
Age range: 18+ only


Blurb:



As Natural as Breathing – Book One
For Christian Darringer, life isn't worth living. Just back from the Middle East—scarred and with permanent damage to one leg—he doesn't think anyone will want him for anything. He didn't plan on meeting someone he can’t stop thinking about. Pulled toward the startling younger man, he begins to question a lot of things—especially his sexuality. Not one to hide from a challenge, he plunges ahead only to find himself more than just attracted to Logan.

Logan Mannette has almost everything he ever wanted: loving parents, happiness, friends, and security. The only thing missing is the love of his life, a love just like his parents have. When he meets Christian at a party, everything changes. Instantly attracted, he does his best to help the sad man and quickly finds himself feeling more than he has ever felt before. Raised in a domestic discipline household, he holds that ideal as what he wants. His interest in spanking has become a fetish and when Christian admits he wants to be spanked, Logan believes he might have found the perfect man.

Just as everything begins for them, Christian's past intercedes and one of his brothers makes waves about him dating a man. When it lands Christian in the hospital, he is forced to reevaluate their budding romance. Being with Logan might feel as natural as breathing, but if it costs Christian everything he cares about, is this new relationship worth it?


Took My Breath Away – Book Two
While unhappy to be missing four weeks of Christian's company, Logan is thrilled to spend a month with his father's relatives in New York. A naturally gregarious individual, he’s used to winning people over and getting things right. Unfortunately the Mannettes are not what he expects and for the first time in his life, he doubts who he is.

Christian has regained some of his old self-esteem and is taking on new challenges. Besides growing in the relationship he has with Logan, he takes the time his boyfriend is away to learn more about domestic discipline. He learns a little online but it is Gregory, Logan's father, where he gains most of his information. Including the fact that his natural strength puts him in a position he doesn’t expect.

Logan hits rock bottom and Christian runs to the rescue. He saves Logan from New York, but puts their relationship in a new sort of peril. When the dust settles, who will be left on top?


 Breathe Each Other In – Book Three
Christian takes to heart everything he learns from Logan's father. As he and Logan go forward in their DD relationship, he finds that he’s 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. The pressure of graduation begins to get to him and the only thing keeping 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, they 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.

Guest Post - 9/17/17 - Becoming Family by PK Corey #DD #SpankingRomance

The talented PK Corey has dropped by to share and excerpt and information about her heartwarming domestic discipline book "Becoming Family," Book 2 in her Cal's Law series.

Before we begin with Cal and Jenny, I asked PK a question, and I thought I'd share it here.

What is your writing environment?

I love to write in the mornings when I have the house to myself and it’s very quiet. We have a sun room that overlooks our pool and the small forest behind out house. I’m there most morning with my coffee, a fire if it’s cool, the windows opened if it’s warm. Add a cat or two and I’m ready to write.

Now, it's on to Cal and Jenny....



Excerpt:

Jenny said no more to her mother, but turned to give her such a hate filled stare that her mother ground out her cigarette and grabbed Jenny’s face in a bruising grip. Jenny felt her mother’s nails digging in as she spoke.
“You started this, you little bitch. Bringing that horrible man to our home as if he were an equal. I’ve put up with you for twenty years and just when you’re to the point of being of some value to the family you think you’re going to marry trash.”
Jenny tried to pull her face from her mother’s grasp, but the fingers only dug in deeper and more painfully.
“You will marry into our social class. Better, in fact, this man is from royal lines and he has a title. You’re not being thrown into a dungeon, Virginia. He has wealth and prestige and he wants an American bride. I’ve told the staff that you’ve fallen into a cult-like group who controls you with drugs. They think we’re getting you into rehab and they are willing to help in every way.
“We are going to the house for a while. Any type of commotion you make will just be chalked up to your drug induced state. So, you will be quiet, you will behave and you will give me no trouble.” Releasing Jenny’s face her mother delivered a stinging slap before sitting back in her seat.


Blurb:

Against overwhelming odds, Jenny and Cal are together and happy. Their love is strong, but before they can become family Jenny needs to learn what that word means. Jenny has no background in the real meaning of "family" but when Cal wants her to meet his and get to know hers, she knows the time has come. The difference in the two families is wide and jarring. Jenny has a lot to learn, but then so does Cal. When he meets her family, he discovers that the word family doesn't always mean the same thing to all people.
Jenny’s mother has planned a future for her daughter that does not include someone as ordinary as Cal Bennet. What could this small-town hick with no money and no connections do for her? How far will her mother go to see that Jenny accepts a life of high society and prestige? Will these two lovers come to an understanding of what their family will look like?

About PK:

The love of writing came to me late in life and I spent time trying to fit writing into a busy schedule. Recently I retired, the kids are out and on their own and my wonderful husband encourages me to spend more time exploring the world of writing.

I always hear you should write what you want to read, so I have. I write loving domestic discipline with the stress on ‘loving’. I want a strong man who cherishes the woman he loves and will go to any length to keep her safe and protected.

My Cassie’s Space series shows a mature couple who are deeply in love. Despite loving Cassie’s free spirited ways Tom is determination to keep her safe, even if it takes a trip over his knee. My new series, Cal’s Law, is about a younger couple. Though they come from very different backgrounds, love and discipline draw them together.

#SatSpanks - 9/9/17 - Acting Lessons - Kate is being called to account #KissMeKate #Spanking


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

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 third spanking romance titled, Acting Lessons. I haven't shared from this book for over a year, so it's time.
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.


Setup: After injuring her knee and spending a few hours in the hospital, Kate ends up sleeping in Peter's bed.  He's taken very good care of her and she's torn between allowing him to continue leading the dance they've started, or leaving before she gets hurt again.  Her heart is still bruised and tender and she's not entirely sure she trusts her ex-husband not to hurt her again.  Though he's warned her to call him before she gets out of bed, Kate decides she needs to be less dependent on him, and more self-reliant.  However, she didn't expect to get caught. Though Peter is not above teaching Kate a lesson, he chooses instead to carry her over to the breakfast table set up in their bedroom. Peter waits until she's had her fill before he addresses Kate's disobedience the day before by asking her why she won't simply admit she'd been jealous. Kate admits that she may have acted out on purpose, but that doesn't mean she wants him to punish her for it. Peter disagrees saying her actions were a deliberate challenge, and ignoring it would be doing both of them a disservice.



            Sighing, she took a step closer. "It's just…I don't like getting spanked."
            One eyebrow arched in disbelief. "I believe that is the whole point of this exercise. I wouldn't be doing this as a punishment if you enjoyed it. However, there is an easy fix for that, isn't there? You can stop behaving in a manner that requires me to prove how far I will go to protect you while demonstrating beyond a doubt just how deeply I love you."
            Wincing, she felt herself slowly moving toward him; as if she was being drawn closer despite the part of her that vehemently rebelled against what he intended to do. She stopped a few feet from him, reluctant to move any closer. "I'd rather you prove that by kissing me, instead."
            "I'll do that, too. This spanking is to prove I will take action when you deliberately defy or disobey me in a way that is harmful to you. And the only time I will ever take such firm action with you is when you clearly need reminding of that fact. You deliberately challenged me in your agent's office and defied me in the studio because you doubted I would carry through with my threat. You will now be well assured that I will. You need and want me to be firm about this, Katie, even if you refuse to admit it aloud. Now take my hand, and I'll help you get in position," he said offering his support. 


Even Kate realizes what she did was wrong, but admitting her jealously only brings back bad memories.
