Peter loved Kate with all his being, but that didn't mean he'd tolerate an ultimatum from her.
Reading this material at Work could get you spanked.
Welcome to the Saturday Spankings blog hop. My stories are all M/f with the dominant male determined to protect the woman he cares for and loves, or grows to love, by doing whatever it takes to ensure her safety and continued health. This includes administering a spanking when she needs one.
My submission for this week is from my third spanking romance titled, Acting Lessons. I haven't shared from this book for over a year, so it's time.
He was a strict and demanding college professor turned professional director who excelled at giving acting lessons. She was his shy and uncertain former student who became a professional actress under his tutelage. They fell in love, married, and won two Tony Awards before tragedy struck and a simple kiss ripped them apart.
After a six month separation, Peter Thorton decides to take matters into his own hands by making his famous wife, Kate, an offer she wouldn't refuse. Plainly put, he wants her back and he intends to do whatever is necessary to achieve his goal, even if it means giving his stubborn, willful leading lady a daily reminder over his knee that she promised to obey him.
Setup: After injuring her knee and spending a few hours in the hospital, Kate ends up sleeping in Peter's bed. He's taken very good care of her and she's torn between allowing him to continue leading the dance they've started, or leaving before she gets hurt again. Her heart is still bruised and tender and she's not entirely sure she trusts her ex-husband not to hurt her again. Though he's warned her to call him before she gets out of bed, Kate decides she needs to be less dependent on him, and more self-reliant. However, she didn't expect to get caught. Though Peter is not above teaching Kate a lesson, he chooses instead to carry her over to the breakfast table set up in their bedroom. Peter waits until she's had her fill before he addresses Kate's disobedience the day before by asking her why she won't simply admit she'd been jealous. Kate admits that she may have acted out on purpose, but that doesn't mean she wants him to punish her for it. Peter disagrees saying her actions were a deliberate challenge, and ignoring it would be doing both of them a disservice.
Sighing, she took a step closer. "It's just…I don't like getting spanked."
One eyebrow arched in disbelief. "I believe that is the whole point of this exercise. I wouldn't be doing this as a punishment if you enjoyed it. However, there is an easy fix for that, isn't there? You can stop behaving in a manner that requires me to prove how far I will go to protect you while demonstrating beyond a doubt just how deeply I love you."
Wincing, she felt herself slowly moving toward him; as if she was being drawn closer despite the part of her that vehemently rebelled against what he intended to do. She stopped a few feet from him, reluctant to move any closer. "I'd rather you prove that by kissing me, instead."
"I'll do that, too. This spanking is to prove I will take action when you deliberately defy or disobey me in a way that is harmful to you. And the only time I will ever take such firm action with you is when you clearly need reminding of that fact. You deliberately challenged me in your agent's office and defied me in the studio because you doubted I would carry through with my threat. You will now be well assured that I will. You need and want me to be firm about this, Katie, even if you refuse to admit it aloud. Now take my hand, and I'll help you get in position," he said offering his support.
