#SatSpanks - 4/18/15 - A Simple Misunderstanding - Honoring her request - #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 selection from my fourth spanking book, A Simple Misunderstanding, a Corbin's Bend novel.  It's sequel, Past Interference is due out February 1st in the Love in the Rockies collection.

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, Elly finally accepts her only option is to divorce her husband, but after signing the papers, she realizes Jerry is still angry over her disobedience. 

Frustrated by the distance growing between them,  Elly realizes unless she confronts him, he'll continue to treat her like an invalid, despite his growing anger. However, when push comes to shove, she's no longer certain she's made a wise decision.

A look of uncertainty crossed Elly's face a moment before she sashayed into the other room, as if daring him to take her in hand. Following, he slapped the foam shoe on his palm with a slow deliberate beat while never once removing his eyes from her. He might be the one carrying out the threat, but she made the call.
She stood near the far armchair, so he took a seat in the center of the couch and patted his lap. “Come here.”
When she shook her head, he leaned back. “I believe you requested this. Have you undergone a change of heart?”
Her heart was beating double time right now, but she lifted her chin. “What makes you think I’m asking to be spanked?”


After being abused by her husband, Elly is antsy about entering into another DD relationship, but she's disobeyed Jerry, and until he forgives her, a part of her will remain unsettled and ill-at-ease.  Rather than continue in limbo, Elly decides to push Jerry into taking action.

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 remember this scene! Well done.

  2. I remember the flip flop.I haven't looked at one the same way since reading this book actually. I loved this book, you took on a serious topic and handled it so courageously and so well.

  3. This was an intense book. You took a lot of risks with this story--and it was very compelling read as a result.

  4. Most recognize when their lovely lady is asking. It's great when they pay attention.

  5. Oh yes, the flip flop. This was such a great scene Kathryn. A challenge from Elly ... for the greater good of course :)

    I loved this book. You dealt with such a difficult topic so well.


  6. I really loved this story and it's sequel in Love in the Rockies! You handled the topic and all the overwhelming emotions that go along with it very well.

  7. Love the scene, Kathryn. Her uncertainty is perfect here

  8. Great snippet, another book added to my to-be-read list! In NZ that shoe is called a 'jandal' :)


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.
