#FriskyFriday - 7/25/14 - A Simple Misunderstanding - Paperwork is merely a formality #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. 

Jerry pulled into the hospital parking lot at 8 AM, but stopped by the nurse’s station to get a report on Elly’s status before he joined her.
Jayne glanced at the computer. “Debby, Mrs. Benson’s night nurse didn’t list anything unusual, Dr. Douglas.”
“Good. Mrs. Benson advised me she was going to be released today. Have her doctors put through the request for her paperwork?’
“Not yet, sir. They’ll probably release her during morning rounds.”
“Okay. Thanks.”
He strode into Elly’s room to find her struggling to get into a pair of sweatpants. “What are you doing?”
She gave him a startled glance, then smiled. “Hi. Getting dressed. Would you bring the car around front, so we could leave right away?”
Seeing she was tangling up her intravenous line as she struggled to dress, he swatted her hands aside. “Stop that. You’ll pull out your IV. Here, I’ll help.” He straightened out the crimped line, made sure her pants didn’t press too tightly against her still bruised and swollen tummy, then lowered her gown. He cupped her cheeks in his hands. “You haven’t been released, yet, Elly. So, what’s this urgency all about?”
Her face crumpled in dismay. “The paperwork is merely a formality. Can’t we just leave?”
“No, we can’t. Now sit down and tell me what’s wrong.”


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.


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.

A Simple Misunderstanding is available at the following locations.

If you want more, I'm also offering a sample of the first three chapters on my web site's A Simple Misunderstanding page. It's for 18+ only readers, but since you're here, I gather you meet the requirements.  A Simple Misunderstanding is currently the only novel in the Corbin's Bend line up, and it's receiving some excellent reviews on the Blushing site.

Thanks for visiting.  I hope you enjoyed the excerpt and have a very Frisky Friday of your own.
