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 current WIP (Work In Progress) tentatively titled, Acting Lessons. This snippet immediately follows my previous excerpt from this book, which I posted on February 2nd.
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: early in the first chapter, Peter Thorton is attempting to convince his wife, Kate, to give their marriage a second chance by signing her to appear with him in a College Summer Stock production of "Kiss Me Kate." 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. Peter realizes he made a mistake in letting Kate do as she pleased, so he's determined to rectify matters immediately. However, Kate is less than convinced she wants to go down the DD road again.

We may no longer be living under the same roof, but we do have a past, and I intend to call upon those memories from time to time. However, if giving my word will ease your mind, I vow not to violate the sanctity of your bed unless you invite me to do so, but other than that--I make no promises about keeping my hands to myself."
Kate frowned. Nothing he said offered her mind ease. Worried about what he didn't say, she straightened her shoulders and met his calculating gaze. "What if I disagree?"
His smile turned wicked. "You are always welcome to disagree with anything I say or do, although I warn you now there will be consequences for such action, and I assume you recall which form they will take?"

Unfortunately, Kate recalls only too well what an act of open defiance will earn her, but she's not ready to surrender, yet.
I am feverishly working on edits, when I'm not posting excerpts, so I hope to be submitting Acting Lessons to Blushing Books by early next week. That means, I may post a few more excerpts before the book is published.
