#SatSpanks - 10/11/14 - A Simple Misunderstanding - Laying down the law #DD #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.  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).  After he outlines why he feels a spanking is necessary and informs her how many swats he intends to give for each infraction, she sums them up only to realize he's talking about giving her sixty swats with the plastic flip flop he's holding.  Then he informs her accepting the swats won't be the difficult part for her.

"You’ll need to convince me you mean what you say, or we’ll repeat the process. If at any stage you refuse to cooperate, I’ll stop and call Brent.”
Her eyes burned as she stared at him. He meant it. If she didn’t accept his punishment and promise not to repeat her errors in judgment, he’d send her to live with someone else. The realization he would do precisely as he threatened made Elly physically ill. Clamping a hand over her mouth, she ran toward the john. He hadn’t so much as laid a finger on her and she lost every bit of breakfast he’d served her.


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 until she realizes exactly what he intends.

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.

  4. Loved this book! It's very well written and describes perfectly the mixed up feelings of a previously abused woman trying to trust someone again.

  5. This was such a great book. It's hard seeing Elly go through those emotions but Jerry really is what she needs.

  6. Flip flops sting for sure *ouch* But the lesson is needed. Nice!

  8. I have finally been able to start reading this and am loving it. Great snippet Kathryn. Poor Elly, so vulnerable. Jerry is so awesome :)


  9. Wow, You really captured this difficult moment. Poor Elly, but I'm glad she's getting what she needs. Can you give her this ((hug))? :)

  10. This was a powerful book. You took some chances talking about a topic like this and I think it takes courage to do that. I loved the book, loved the HEA. They both deserved it. I'm now going back to look at the flip flop up there...
