#6BestHop - 4/10/16 - Arrested by Love - Tiffany is ordered to prepare a switch #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 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. However, when Tiffany begs him not to leave her, he extends his hand and walks her to his car.

            Kyle drove for over a half-hour, taking them to an excluded spot where he parked and just sat looking out the windshield for a few minutes.  Tiffany was totally silent.  She was stiff and wary, though no longer crying.  Unfortunately, he knew that wasn't going to last long.
            Wanting to be alone to get his thoughts and emotions together, he turned to her and said, "I want you to get out of the car and go over to that willow and select and prepare an appropriate switch that I can use.  It needs to be about a half-inch thick and flexible.  Once you have done that, I want you stand by that log and wait for me.  Do you understand what I am asking?"  At her small nod, he said, "Then go now, please."
            She very slowly opened the door of the car, shut it quietly then walked over to the tree he'd indicated.  He watched her run her fingers along each branch testing for the one she'd choose and knew she'd started crying again.  He shook his head.  He loved her with all his heart, but he couldn't let her get away with lying to him.  Not if he ever hoped to be able to trust her again.
            He waited until she'd selected her branch, and watched her delicately pick off all the leaves then try it out.  He could hear the whip sound and saw her wince, then close her eyes.  She took a deep breath then walked over to the log he'd indicated, stood with her back to him and waited.  He knew from experience that the waiting was the worst, and he also knew she was crying as much from guilt as from fear.  Her slumped body posture told him that.  He wasn't making her wait to be cruel.  He wanted to make sure he was fully under control before he punished her.  Whether or not he chose to use the branch she'd prepared was another matter.  He had no wish to cause her injury, only to teach her a lesson.  So, he still needed to decide on the best way to accomplish that.  What would make the most indelible impression on that devious little butt of hers?  What would make her truly regret what she did, and ensure she never did it again?
            Grabbing the bottle of lotion he kept in the car, he shoved it deep inside his pocket.  He knew she hated it, except it helped reduce the impact of his chosen punishment, so she would have to accept it.  It also meant he could do nothing to break her skin.  Not that he wanted to, but if he tried to rub that stuff on an open wound, she'd be screaming through next week.  Opening his car door, he got out and walked over to where she stood.
            "Remove your skirt and underwear now, please," he ordered taking a seat on the log.

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.

  1. Great snippet Kathryn, this is going to be hard on both of them. I wonder if he will use the switch?
