#SatSpanks - 8/2/14 - A Simple Misunderstanding - 60 swats is going to hurt #CorbinsBend #SpankingRomance

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

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 a sneak peek from my fourth spanking book, A Simple Misunderstanding, a Corbin's Bend novel published on July 15 by Blushing Books.  This will be my last excerpt for this book on Saturday Spankings for a while.  I'm going to move it into rotation with my other books, so it's not scheduled to return to SatSpanks until 9/13.  I hope you enjoy it.

In this scene, which occurs in the last third of the book, Eleanor Benson (Elly) has moved in with Gerald Douglas (Jerry) after she is released from the hospital, still recovering from injuries she received from her husband.  Jerry insists she stay close to the house and not take her dog walking in the park on the first day she's home.  However, when an older neighbor calls to her from the dog park, Elly disobeys Jerry's instructions and takes their two dogs with her, unaware her abusive husband is lying in wait for her.  When her actions nearly get her killed, Jerry determines Elly needs to learn obedience to him is not optional. After making sure she's healthy enough to withstand punishment, he orders her to stand in the corner sans panties.  When he gives her permission to turn around, he's seated on the bed holding a blue plastic thong (shoe, not underwear).  Ordering her to hold out her hand, he gives it a smack with the flip-flop and asks her to rate her pain level.  Once she establishes it as zero, he discusses her transgressions in order of their occurrence. When he lists the fact she lied to him by telling him the bruises on her arm left by her husband were nothing, she attempts to defend her actions by claiming she didn't want to get him more upset than he already was, but that quickly backfires on her.  The last thing Jerry brings up is the worst, in his mind, because Elly could have hurt herself by ripping out her stitches.

            "Third one. Climbing the stairs. You admitted you knew you weren’t supposed to, yet you did it anyway. And since you carried Muffin upstairs along with her bed, you’ll get triple for that transgression.”
“You’re talking sixty swats with that foam flip-floppy thing you’re holding.”
“Yes, I am.”
One had barely registered on her pain meter, so she figured ten wouldn’t either. Twenty would begin to sting. Thirty would be painful. By forty, she’d have difficulty staying still. At fifty, she would start sobbing, and by the time he reached sixty, she’d be a total mess.


After being abused by her husband, Elly is nervous about entering into another DD relationship, but she's disobeyed Jerry, and despite her stated excuses knows she was wrong to do so.  So she willingly, if not a little regretfully, accepts whatever punishment he decides is appropriate.

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.

  1. I'm loving her 'flip-flop' spankometer ranking! I have to agree, though, by sixty things are going to get a wee bit unpleasant. Loved it :)

  2. Really creative passage with the counting, Kathryn! And, of course, the flip-flop.

  3. I loved this book - it's amazing what a determined man can do with a flip-flop!

  4. Jerry was so good for her after that bastard, Arthur. Loved how you handled a very touchy subject.

  5. I think Jerry know's just how to handle Elly's past abuse. And the creativity of using the flip-flop is wonderful.
    Yay Jerry... Boo Arthur.
    I have one of the Cobrin's Bend books now that I've just started reading. I can tell already I am going to have to get them all. ☺

  6. Hmm... never received a flip-flop spanking before. Maybe I should slip one into our implement stash and see for myself:)~

  7. I believe I mentioned earlier that in the right hand a thong can score more than a 1. Thanks for providing me right. But sixty, retouch! Great snippet.

  8. Hmmmm this is very intriguing. Flip flop spanks...

  9. You know, I'm really going to have to try a flip flop, just for comparatives, you understand :)

  10. It seems that Jerry is gently bringing her back to DD without being abusive. She seems to really trust him

  11. He is so lovely and it's great that she trusts him after all she's been through. Lovely snippet :)


I love hearing from readers, so thank you for making my day! Writers with any thoughts at all (Naughty or otherwise) love comments, and I'm no exception.
