#SatSpanks - 5/23/15 - A Simple Misunderstanding - Isn't refusing to obey a form of defiance? #CorbinsBend #Spanking

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, and Jerry accepts her challenge, she's no longer sure she's made the right decision. Covering her unease with bravado, she demands to know what makes him think she's asking to be spanked.

“Oh, sweetie, you’re practically screaming for me to jump up, grab you, and toss you over my knee so I can whale out my displeasure on your backside. Except that’s not how I do things. And if you wish to maintain I’ve misread your signals; tell me why you’re putting on this show of defiance.”
“I’m not defying you; I just don’t want to follow your orders.”
Interesting distinction, but he didn’t believe her for a second. “And you don’t consider refusing to obey my orders defiance?”
She shrugged, so he let out a long breath. “I believe we currently have you up to sixty swats. Care to go for seventy?”
Her brow wrinkled. “No, sir.”


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. This is a great scene Kathryn. Interesting distinction indeed.


  2. This was such a compelling book. In trying to help her, Jerry put her in a difficult situation.

  3. I like the distinction. I may need to try it sometime. Great snippet and great book.

  4. She's found a good one this time, but I do understand her feelings. Really enjoyed ths book.

  5. What fabulous conflict on display here. Love the brow wrinkle. Yes, definitely stop and think about it for a minute, Elly. Great snippet!

  6. I really liked this book. Who wouldn't be worried about going into another DD relationship after just escaping from an abusive one? It's a very scary thing.

  7. Loving her inner conflict here. Great snippet

  8. Hee hee! Yes, I think it's the same thing.

  9. Sexy scene, Kathryn.

  10. I love that he can read her so well.

  11. Sixty swats and she's arguing distinctions ... she's going to get a distinctively sore bottom at this rate.

  12. 62 SWATS! Wow, now that's some kind of naughty my butt is not comfortable with LOL! Hope she enjoys them :)

  13. I have to giggle always at the flip flop. Any time I put mine on now, I think of this book...I think Jerry had a pretty tough role to play with Elly. He had to be firm but also soft and aware constantly of her and how she could be interpreting and then add on what she needs that she may not be aware of herself. It's a heavy weight. I'm glad it worked out for them though.


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.
