#SatSpanks - 1/9/16 - A Simple Misunderstanding - Only acceptable responses get rewarded #DD #CorbinsBend

He came to her rescue when she needed him most, almost to lose her when she disobeyed him.

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 a selection from my fourth spanking book, A Simple Misunderstanding, a Corbin's Bend novel.  It's sequel, Past Interference is due out February 1st in the Love in the Rockies collection.

In this scene, which occurs in the last third of the book, Eleanor Benson (Elly) has moved in with Gerald Douglas (Jerry) after she is released from the hospital, still recovering from injuries she received from her husband.  Jerry insists she stay close to the house and not take her dog walking in the park on the first day she's home.  However, when an older neighbor calls to her from the dog park, Elly disobeys Jerry's instructions and takes their two dogs with her, unaware her abusive husband is lying in wait for her.

When her actions nearly get her killed, Elly finally accepts her only option is to divorce her husband, but after signing the papers, she realizes Jerry is still angry over her disobedience. 

Frustrated by the distance growing between them,  Elly realizes unless she confronts him, Jerry will continue to treat her like an invalid, despite his growing anger. Still, when push comes to shove, and Jerry accepts her challenge, Elly begins to have second thoughts. Covering her unease with bravado, she demands to know what makes him think she's asking to be spanked. Despite her reticence to submit, Jerry recognizes Elly's show of defiant disobedience as a cry for him to take action, so he remains adamant without force. Unfortunately, what Elly really wants is for Jerry to take the decision away from her, so her submission is no longer her choice, except that's not how Jerry prefers to do things, but he does when Elly leaves him no choice.

"This set is for going to the park. With each swat, I want you to say, ‘I will not disobey Jerry.’ Repeat the sentence now, please.”
“Go to hell! Ow!” Another thwack, this one a bit firmer than the first, and she received no consoling rub.
“Unacceptable. Now, do you need more of a warm up, or are you ready to begin?”
“I didn’t ask for this.”
He sighed and the thong came down again. Not quite as firmly this time, but hard enough she got the message and repeated the words he wanted. “I will not disobey Jerry.”
“Good girl.” A gentle rub. Arthur never soothed her after a punishment, let alone during one. He’d even tried to take a wooden spoon to her for swearing at him, while Jerry gave her a swat with a flimsy swim thong and rubbed away the sting when she repeated the phrase he’d required.


After being abused by her husband, Elly is antsy about entering into another DD relationship, but she's disobeyed Jerry, and until he forgives her, a part of her will remain unsettled and ill-at-ease.  Rather than continue in limbo, Elly decides to push Jerry into taking action, but getting what she asks for isn't always what she wants.

M/F Domestic Discipline in Colorado.


Though Arthur and Eleanor Benson have been practicing domestic discipline for three months since their wedding, he insists moving to Corbin's Bend, where domestic discipline is the norm rather than the exception, will revitalize their marriage. Elly has doubts, but since Arthur is the undisputed head of their household, they move. However, once Arthur becomes immersed in a community where spanking is not only permitted, but encouraged, his personality undergoes a dramatic change. Accusing his submissive wife of being lazy, disorganized and disobedient, he employs creative methods of pain and humiliation to mold Elly from the imperfect woman he married into the perfect woman he desires. And Elly finds herself a virtual prisoner in her own home, accountable only to the man who rules her life with a cane.

In his years as a vet, Jerry Douglas has seen what abuse does to animals, and he recognizes those same signs in Elly Benson during her daily escape to the dog park with her tiny poodle. Jerry steadfastly supports the tenets of domestic discipline and enjoys the freedom Corbin's Bend offers its residents, but he remains fiercely protective of anyone in need of a champion. And when he witnesses evidence of harsh handling, his instinct is to rush in and rescue. Problem is Elly Benson is a married and consenting adult who insists all her bruises and welts are nothing more than a simple misunderstanding between her and her husband, until the day Arthur Benson takes his authority and discipline one-step too far, endangering Elly's life.

Thanks for visiting.  I hope you enjoyed this brief excerpt and want more. Please click on one of the author's names below, or visit The Saturday Spankings Blog to continue your journey.


  1. I love this snippet Kathryn, such a contrast between Arthur and Jerry. I would balk at that sentence too.


  2. I'm impressed when an author explores the difference between a healthy DD relationship and an abusive one. I don't think it's easy to write about, but your excerpt is so well done! Jerry seems like a stud. :)

  3. He needs to hear it, but talking during a spanking (except for 'Stop!' or 'Oww...") is very hard.

  4. She is so lucky to have Jerry after Arthur. She learns what love is really like. Good story.

  5. This comment has been removed by the author.

  6. Love the picture of the thong. Such a hot snippet, and I'd love to meet a man like Jerry. :)

  7. Arthur doesn't sound very nice... Jerry on the other hand sounds lovely. Can he teach Elly the meaning of obedience, though? Let's hope he can, but not too quickly ;)

  8. Agree with the others - Jerry sounds like a distinct improvement over Arthur!


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.
