#WIPitUP - 1/13/16 - Arrested by Love & Lessons in Love - A Twofer #DD #WIP

WIP: Work in progress.  WIP it up Wednesday is a hop where writers share portions of the project they're working on with readers.  I really like the idea because it allows me to share something that's still in the creative stage as well as work behind the scenes as a prompt to keep me writing. However, today I've decided to also share from my first spanking novel "Arrested by Love"

In Arrested by Love, Kyle and Tiffany have been having problems, but they are attempting a reconciliation after Kyle basically kidnapped her from her home, with her father's grudging approval, and taken her to see a doctor. Tiffany had become very ill during their separation and Kyle is determined to take care of her in every way she needs. Though Tiffany isn't a true submissive, she is trying to smooth things over with Kyle, so she's working hard to keep her bratty tendencies at bay. However, there's only so much a girl can do.

            "Yes, sweetie?"
            "May I come join you in the kitchen this morning?"
            "You sure you feel up to it?"
            "Yes, sir."
            "Then yes, you may.  But if I see you getting the slightest bit tired it's back into bed you go."
            She stuck her tongue out at him, and he arched an eyebrow in response.  "You looking for a swat, young lady?"
            "No, sir," she answered softly.
            "Then, you'd best keep that little pink tongue of yours in your mouth where it belongs, or else I may get some other ideas as to what you can do with it."
            Her eyes widened, then she smiled.  "Really, sir?  I haven't had much practice, but I'm certainly willing to try."


Kyle enjoys Tiffany's sass to a point. The fact that she's feeling better now has him in a much better mood. Though he's insisting upon maintaining a DD relationship with his girl, he gives her as much leeway as his dominance will allow. Not that he won't put her over his knee if he feels it's necessary.

"Lessons in Love" centers around a wealthy business owner who believes in helping his executive admins using politically incorrect, H.R.unapproved, and therefore clandestine, Domestic Discipline techniques.  Since DD isn't for everyone, he does tend to go through admins rather frequently.  However, he also makes sure if they choose not to work for him because of his unorthodox management style, that they are given another suitable position in his company if they wish to stay, or a handsome severance package if they choose to leave.

Pam Weston has worked in Robert Peterson's company for nearly six months as a temp when she is reassigned to the President's office.  She has caught glimpses of Mr. Peterson when she temped on the executive floor, but she never expected she'd be summoned to work for him.  Pam has a criminal record and a murky past, which has made her practically unemployable, and yet now H.R. has assigned her to work for the president of their company, and after her first day she suspects working for Mr. Peterson will be a very different experience.

This excerpt follows on directly after last week's. Mr. Peterson has ordered Pam to block off the morning on his calendar so they could have a "discussion" about his expectations for his assistant. Pam is understandably nervous to have his intentions spelled out in black and white.

Pam's response was cut off by the arrival of her boss.
"Ladies," he murmured with a nod before walking past them to step into his office.
Pam mouthed, "He's early."
Krista mouthed back, "I know," then said aloud, "Why don't you tell me what you need done, Pam, and I'll finish up. Mr. Peterson indicated he wanted time with you this morning."
"Not until nine," Pam countered, as she sensed the energy of the man standing behind her. When his hands landed on her shoulders; however, she gave a small shiver.
"I thought we would start early, since it appears we have quite a bit to discuss."
Pam gazed helplessly at Krista, who merely smiled before she addressed Mr. Peterson. "We wanted to complete a few things so Pam wouldn't worry about them."
His firm fingers squeezed Pam's shoulders. "How long?"
"Half an hour?" Pam suggested tentatively.
"Consider yourself on the clock, Miss Weston. I'll expect to see you in front of my desk no later than eight-thirty. Understood?"
"Yes, sir."
He gave her a final light squeeze. "Good."

When Pam Weston was ordered to report to the CEO of Peterson Enterprises she had no idea her new boss had hired her specifically as his next pet project, so she took the assignment suspecting he would fire her before the end of the day. Recognizing a prison record rendered her unemployable by most companies, she worked hard and kept a low profile. Except, working as an executive assistant for the CEO was about as "high profile" as any job could get. And working for Robert Peterson in particular would present Pam with challenges she never expected.

The novel was accepted by Blushing Books and is scheduled to be published on January 27, 2016
