#6BestHop - 9/20/15 - Arrested by Love - Confession may be good for the soul, but.... #DD #Spanking

He caught her speeding in a school zone and decided she needed to learn even civil disobedience could have very painful consequences.

Welcome to Sunday's Six of the Best.  For this hop we get to share six paragraphs from a published work or a WIP (work in progress). I've decided to continue on with the excerpts I shared for Sneak Peek Sunday. So, if you've been reading those, these snippets are direct continuations from my previous shares.

My submission for this week is from my 3rd book, Arrested by Love.  A handsome, but strict, police officer  decides a spoiled socialite needs a special lesson in obeying the law.

Tiffany Morgan has been in love with Kyle Sinclair since she was ten years old, when he'd turned her over his knee for attempting to swim in a raging white water river. Though she'd been furious with him at the time, Tiffany never told her family what Kyle did. Instead, she began trailing after him like an annoying younger sister as she tried to gain his attention.

Now, eleven years later, Kyle, a patrol officer, is finding it much more difficult to maintain his distance from the irresistible and vivacious redhead who continues to invent ingenious ways to attract his interest. Though he dismissed her initial attraction to him as infatuation, as she grew-up, his own feelings of desire and protectiveness deepened. So, despite his constant struggle to resist the spirited little minx's lures, Kyle finally has to admit that he is losing the battle--badly.

After Kyle makes it clear to Tiffany that speeding will earn her much more than a ticket from him, he gives into the inevitable and asks her out on a date.  He loves her, but isn't sure he's the right guy for her.  However, he no longer fights the attraction between them as he dates her exclusively, but Tiffany wants more, so she makes her stand, and Kyle makes it clear how her life will change if they get married.  And he persists by asking if she even thought she could live on a budget.  When she informs him she is not fiscally irresponsible, he tells her that if she can live for one month on the budget he sets for her, and show how she'd been able to save the rest of her salary, without going to her daddy for help, he will ask her to marry him.  But after two weeks in a row of going over, Tiffany seeks out her father in a tearful panic. He agrees to bail her out, but warns her that men can forgive a lot, but lying is something they find difficult to excuse.

So, by lying to Kyle, Tiffany finds herself swiftly spiraling downward into a morass of guilt that has her sobbing when he proposes. Confused, Kyle tries to get to the root of the problem as he comforts her, but when she tries to dismiss her crying jag as unimportant, he puts his foot down.

            Kyle shook his head and lifted up her chin.  "Unacceptable, Tiff.  I refuse to start out our life together in this way.  Just a few seconds ago, you were absolutely devastated by something and sobbing in my arms.  And now you're trying to tell me it was over nothing.  Sorry, honey.  Not buying it."
            She drew away from him slightly as though she needed the distance to tell him.  "Promise you won't get mad?"
            He shook his head.  "No. I can't promise that."  When she stubbornly clamped her lips together, he added, "All right.  I've had quite enough of this, Tiffany Anne.  I want you to tell me what happened, and right now!"  It wasn't a request, and she grimaced at the use of her full name, knowing it meant she was in it up to her chin as far as he was concerned.
            "It's not what you think.  Really," she assured him.
            "I believe we have already established that, Miss Morgan.  Now, I want to know what it was you did that even the thought of telling me got you so upset you dissolved into tears.
            Kyle watched as she slunk down a little more, as if she wanted to make herself smaller.  Less of a target, he supposed.  She'd done something really bad, and she knew he wasn't going to like it.

Tiffany loves Kyle, and wants to prove to him she can will make a good wife, except she's never tried to keep to a budget before, and she quickly discovers it's much harder than she originally thought.  She knows going to her father is against the rules, but she can't face Kyle's disappointment for the second week in a row, so she breaks the rule, convincing herself she'll make it up in another way. However, when she falls short yet again, she begins to feel like a total failure, and actually bursts into tears when Kyle proposes. Kyle, of course, begins to suspect the worst and refuses to let Tiffany dismiss her outburst as stupid.
