#WIPitUP - 2/24/16 - Lessons in Love - Antediluvian? #DD #SpankingRomance

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.

So, I want to continue sharing my newest published spanking romance novel "Lessons in Love" with you.

"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 my last WIP excerpt for Lessons in Love. Mr. Peterson has ordered Pam to block off the morning on his calendar so they could have a "discussion" about his expectations for her as his assistant. Pam is understandably nervous to have his intentions spelled out in black and white. Still seated behind her desk, she turns to her new friend and co-worker to admit she's not at all sure she can go through with the meeting.

Krista patted her shoulder. "Say the word, and I'll go in and rattle the lion's cage for you to get him to settle down a bit. He appears to be on a testosterone high today."
Pam rolled her eyes then winced. "I've been warned against eye-rolling, too. How serious do you think he gets?"
"Too serious. I don't agree with his methods, and I wouldn't put up with his antediluvian attitude, but he seems to read you correctly."
"Antediluvian? Really? You seriously think Peterson's attitude predates the biblical flood?" Pam asked with a laugh, but when Krista merely shrugged in response, she sighed."Well, as for reading me, I'd say he does that a little too well. It's scary." She picked up the file. "This is what I've got left to do…."
After filling Krista in, Pam had five minutes to spare, so she rushed to the bathroom. A part of her wanted to stay and hide, while another part of her longed for Robert Peterson to pick her up and hold her close again. His presence had a calming effect on her while arousing her enough to make her want to do things she'd never done with anyone else.

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.

  1. There's nothing wrong with antediluvian men... especially if they have both calming and arousing effects ;)


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.
