#SatSpanks - 1/3/15 - Acting Lessons - Learning when to back down #DD #KissMeKate

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
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 to her destination.  The bathroom.  He is gently letting her down when a knock sounds at the bedroom door.  Believing it to be his housekeeper with her breakfast, Peter gives Kate one, final warning before he leaves to get the door.

             "Stay in here and I'll carry you back."
            "I can walk, Peter--"  From the fierce expression on his face and his soft, angry growl, she immediately knew she'd said the wrong thing.  "I'll wait for you," she finished with a placating smile.  Boy, he was touchy this morning.
            He gave her a nod, then strode out of the bathroom, quietly shutting the door as he did.

Once again, Kate is not in an enviable position, but she knows better than to pull the lion's tail when it's growling a warning.
M/F, DD and a staged production of Kiss Me, Kate.

  1. Smart choice on Kate's part! Great snippet Kathryn :)


  2. Nicely turned scene, Kathryn--effects of discipline, rather than causes?

  3. Taking heed of those warning growls is an important lesson to learn.

  4. I hope that Kate listens to Peter or else I think that she'll be sitting on a sore bottom.

  5. I love a story about a second chance at love. Sigh. Happy 2015!

  6. Loved this book Kathyrn and the snippet. A growl can speak volumes, yes? :)

  7. So excited to read this! It's been on my TBR for TOO long!
