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 contracted spanking romance titled, Acting Lessons. I put WIP in the header, since the work isn't published, and I don't have a release date for it, yet, but I received my contract from Blushing Books on Monday. I'm excited. This snippet immediately follows my previous excerpt from this book, which I posted on April 6th.
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. In fact, he's just reminded her what he will do if she continues to act the shrew off stage.

Sitting back, Kate crossed her arms over her chest, creating a non-verbal barrier. "Those days have long passed, Peter. We're both much older and wiser now to play silly games of dominance and submission. Wouldn't you agree?"
One eyebrow arched. "No, I don't. Despite what your sharp words intimate, they weren't games, Kate. Not ever. You may not believe me now, but I will put you over my knee if you continue to act the spoiled dilettante."
Kate's entire body went on instant alert. "Try it, and I'll have you arrested," she warned, inching her chair out of his reach.

Kate is smart, but issuing a challenge like that to Peter is worse than waving a red flag before an angry bull. The lady can threaten all she wants, but she can't stop him from doing something he now believes is long overdue.
I'll continue to post excerpts from Acting Lessons, so when I get a publication date you guys will be one of the first to know.
