#6BestHop - 2/21/16 - Arrested by Love - A serious disagreement #DD #SpankingRomance

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 admits she's been less than truthful with him, he demands her full confession. Kyle is more upset over the fact she lied to him than her failure to keep to a budget, so he gives her a choice. She either comes with him quietly and without , a fuss or they separate. When she presses for a time limit, he gives one he hopes she will reject. A year. Aghast, Tiffany insists he's being unfair and asks what she could in return if he was the one in the wrong. Surprised by her reaction, since she is the one who lied, Kyle tells her she could do what he was about to do. Walk away.

             "No!" she cried, clutching at his arm.
            Keeping his expression stern, he looked down at her.  "I believe you are not really sorry for what you did, Tiffany Anne.  If you were, you would be doing your best to make amends to me rather than argue as if you were the injured party.  Perhaps it is best we separate for awhile, after all."  Then yanking his arm free of her grasp, he started to walk away, only to stop when she cried, "All right!  I'll go with you."
            He turned back to glare at her.  "That's nice, darling.  Except I'm not sure I really want you with me right now."  He gave her a nod.  "I'll see you later, when I'm not quite so angry with you."
            Fully intending to leave her standing in her back yard, he still stopped when she cried out, "Kyle!"
            Taking a deep breath, he turned back.  Seeing her miserable, frightened expression, he extended his hand against his better judgment.  She ran to him without hesitation.  Better, he supposed.  But they still had a long way to go before this would be settled between them.

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. Despite being a bit relieved when he realizes she hasn't fallen for someone else, Kyle knows it's important for him to set the ground rules for their relationship up front.
