#SatSpanks - 2/20/2021 - "Lessons in Love" - Establishing the Rules #DomesticDisicpline #OfficeRomance #Executive

 

 

She needed a job, he needed a personal assistant. It seemed like a match made in heaven until he laid out the rules he expected her to follow.


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 sixth spanking book, Lessons in Love.


"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.

Today, he has chosen to outline his plans for Pam, which leaves her even more uncertain than before.


He rose and went to his desk, where he pulled out a sheaf of papers. "These are the rules I've established. You already know most of them and any you aren't aware of, I'll let slide the first time."

Swallowing, she glanced at the stack he held. "That's a lot of paper."

"True, although much of what the document contains is common sense. You will be my personal assistant, answerable only to me. As such, I will want and need you to do some things you might find objectionable at first."

"Like what?"

"Like I will want you to purchase a whole new wardrobe, at my expense. I want to send you to a woman who knows my tastes, and she will outfit you. I will also insist you go to the hairstylist to receive a more professional cut than your current style. Even though I find ponytails cute on you, I do not find them acceptable on my executive admin. In addition to the haircut, I will request they give you a manicure." He examined her hands. "You bite your nails?"

"Only when I'm nervous."

"Not anymore. Nail biting is now a punishable offense."

"What?"

"Not getting enough sleep or failing to eat properly will become a punishable offense."

"Are you planning to control my entire life?"

"In essence, yes, I am. I will be the final arbitrator of all discussions, and I decide what is best for you."

"I'm not a child, Mr. Peterson."

"I believe we've already established that fact, Miss Weston. However, as my admin, you represent me, and I have standards to maintain."



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.



Blurb:

Pam Weston didn't have many choices as far as employment went. Her prison sentence saw to that. With limited secretarial skills, and an even more limited budget, she never considered herself executive material. So, when she was ordered to report to the CEO of her company as his new personal assistant, she fully expected to be checking out the "Help Wanted" section of the paper before the day was over.

Robert Peterson knew his management style was not HR approved, but he believed in using the stick as well as the carrot. Employing the tenets of domestic discipline, he helped mold his personal assistants into confident women who recognized their own self-worth. Even so, his unorthodox methods were only one of the reasons many considered the position of his assistant to be a revolving door. To Rob's mind, Pamela Weston was perfect for his purposes, though given her past he expected convincing her would be a challenge.

Guest Post - 2/13/21 - The Last Dragon by Daryl Devore #Legend #Dragons #Knights

 

Are some wounds just too deep to heal? Are some risks too great? Some rewards just not enough?




Excerpt:

A monk raced to the side of the abbot. “People at the gate. With torches and knives and… and… The monastery is attacked. They want the babe.” He clutched at his chest, trying to inhale air.

Hawkyns slipped his arm through the shield’s straps and gripped his weapon. Derry could sense the anger building in him. It wasn’t evil anger. It was the anger of a knight knowing he must right an injustice.

“Derry, stay back here. Take the horse and hide in the herbarium. I will get the child and return.”

The abbot stood in front of Hawkyns, barring his attack. “Ye cannot kill anyone within the walls of the abbey. This is a place of peace. Of God.”

Hawkyns flinched. “But if they kill yer brothers?”

The monk lowered his head. “'Tis God’s will.”

Hawkyns’ knuckles turn white from the grip on his sword. Frustrated anger filled his brow.

Father Jacobus raised his hand. “Do not fight me on this, my son. Swear, in the eyes of God, that ye will not kill within the walls of Baswich Abbey.”

Hawkyns knelt and placed the point of his sword on the ground and rested his forehead on the cross-shaped hilt. “I swear I will kill no one on abbey grounds.”

The abbot made the sign of the cross over him. “Go. Save the child.”






Blurb:

What do dragons, knights and romance have in common? Grab a copy of multi-published author Daryl Devore’s medieval fantasy romance – The Last Dragon and discover the answer.

A sorcerer craving dominance merged with a dragon, the power overwhelmed him causing him to split into three dragons. Demora ruled thought, but was lost in time. Yidithe offered protection, shining like the light of the sun. Ayrradex craved chaos, revelling in destroying souls.

Many knights died, attempting to slay the devil beast. One knight, Prince Hawkyns, did not fear death. He’d lost everything. Away on a mission when Ayrradex attacked his fathers kingdom, Penrythe, Hawkyns returned to find his noble father – feeble and defeated. His wise mother – crazed. His beautiful wife and unborn child - dead. Only a pile of ashes remained for him to bury. He knelt before his King and vowed to slay the devil-beast or be slain.

Derry was born with powers that terrified her parents. They delivered her to a nunnery to be raised in secret. Jathe, a wise sorceress, discovered the young girl and trained her to one day use the secret hidden in her soul.

Legends spoken around campfires hinted the sole way to destroy Ayrradex was when the hearts of a knight and a golden dragon became one. But after a vicious battle with Ayrradex, the golden dragon was thought to be dead.

Can Prince Hawkyns’s bravery and Derry’s powers end the reign of the devil-beast’s terror?

Guest Post 2/5/21 - "A Hero's Heart" by Amber Daulton #MC #Contemporary #Romance

When it comes to revenge, nothing is sacred, not even Christmas.


Excerpt:

Marissa stood up from the table, grabbed a few plates and headed toward the kitchen. She stuffed the plates in the trashcan and washed her hands under warm water in the sink. 

She didn’t want Jarrett to stay with them but how could he refuse? Her son made a compelling argument and it was damn hard to ignore his tears, especially when they weren’t crocodile tears.

Living under the same roof as Jarrett, even for just a few days, wouldn’t be easy. After their amazing night together, Marissa couldn’t fathom keeping her hands off him. His tanned, muscled body nearly made her drool. Just thinking about it doubled the saliva in her mouth. She had vowed just an hour ago to keep her distance and not sleep with him again. Now, she didn’t know how not to sleep with him. With the guestroom bordering her bedroom and Jason’s room down the hall, she could easily sneak inside Jarrett’s room and pleasure his body for hours.

A feeling of unease crept up her spine. She turned to face Jarrett as he approached from the swinging kitchen door. She sighed and turned off the faucet. She dried her hands with a soft towel and refused to meet his gaze.

“I’m sorry, Marissa. If staying here will be an inconvenience, I’ll tell Jason I can’t.”

She shook her head. “He’ll blame me.”

“No, I’ll say that I have to go back to San Francisco for work or Montana for the ski trip. He’ll understand.”

A raw laugh crawled up her throat. “He’ll understand? He’ll scream and beg you to stay. Once you leave, he’ll cry for hours.”

“Marissa, what do you want from me? I can’t stay forever. I don’t want to hurt him or you, I swear it, but I will leave. It’s only a matter of when, not if.”

She grasped the counter to keep steady. She hated how much her foolish heart hurt with those words. “I know that. I don’t expect anything different.” She swallowed hard to strengthen her voice. “I’m not your wife. Jason is not your son. We’re not good enough reasons for you to give up the life you built in California. I don’t want anything from you. I’ll understand when you leave but Jason won’t, not that it’s any of your concern. I’ll deal with his pain when the time comes.”

He clutched his fists and turned away. “You sure know how to make a man feel like shit.”

She folded her arms. “That’s not my intention.”

“It doesn’t change the facts.” He grabbed the cell phone from his pocket and checked the time. “Am I staying here or not? It’s your choice.”

She considered throwing the bastard out on his ass. If it wasn’t for Jason, she would. “You’re staying.”

“Okay.” He gripped the phone tight. “I’ll call my boss and let him know your address.”

“Fine. I assume your bike has a lot of compartments for extra clothes and travel supplies. I’ll show you to the guestroom when you’re ready.”

Jarrett nodded and headed to the swinging door, now still, but paused before passing through. “Thank you, Marissa. I do appreciate it.”

She fisted her hands. “Thank Jason.”

With that, he left the kitchen. 




Blurb:

DEA field agent Jarrett Brandt returns home to visit his brother's grave, not to reconnect with his first true love.

Now widowed with a son, Marissa Reinn Brandt expects nothing from the one who broke her heart—the twin brother of the man she’d married—but then her son offers him a place to stay for Christmas.

As they rekindle the flames of love that once bound them together, an enemy from his past and a trusted mentor from his present threaten to destroy everything they hold dear.

Guest Post - 1/14/21 - "Harmony's Embrace" by Amber Daulton - #RomanticSuspense #HolidayRomance

 

Reuniting with the man who broke her heart has never felt so right.





Excerpt:

He sighed heavily. Snapping at her wouldn’t convince her to stick around. “Have you thought about me over the years?”

Her bottom lip trembled, then she sucked it between her teeth. “Of course I have. High school was a long time ago, and our dreams clashed. You wanted a laidback life, even though you cut loose with Susannah in college. I wanted big-city living, and I got it. I like it.”

“So a rich-ass condo means that much to you? You want a new job slaving away five or six days a week for some major corporation until you’re exhausted?” He silently cursed. Not only did he slave away at his job, he was growing more tired of it by the day.

Good job, man. Way to control your temper.

In the back of his mind, he’d always believed he and Harmony would find one another again. Susannah and Claude didn’t compute. How crazy was that? Did he marry someone so different from himself because, subconsciously, he didn’t want the relationship to work?

A frown creased her brow. “I don’t need or want expensive things, but I like to work, to feel useful. My dream home is a little yellow bungalow with a big yard in a suburb.” She rocked in the chair as though she longed to jump up and run out the door. “I don’t want to argue. Let’s finish eating and hit the slopes.” She polished off her chips in a handful of loud crunches.

“What did you expect?” His throat constricted. “We’ve never hashed this stuff out since Susannah and Claude were always stuck up our asses. It’s time we deal with it.”

She scowled, then finished her grinder.

Birley gritted his teeth. Why had he been so stupid all those years ago? He’d wanted her to attend the University of Vermont with him, but she balked at another lengthy stint in school. He never should’ve walked off, leaving her crying on the porch of her parents’ house. She wanted time to think about her future—they’d only graduated from high school that morning—but her refusal didn’t mean she’d stopped loving him.

Too bad he hadn’t realized the truth at the time. She’d hurt his pride and broken his heart. Nothing mattered but hurting her in return. They avoided each other for the rest of the summer, then he headed off to the university.

God, how he’d missed her. She’d continued to work for her uncle while earning her accounting degree at a local community college and later moved to New Jersey for her job. Any chance of repairing their relationship had left with her, but by then, he was with Susannah.

Birley ate the rest of his sandwich, which slid down his gullet like cardboard. “No matter what you decide, I’m happy you’re home now.” The hope in his chest deflated. He stood and tugged on his gloves. “Let’s hit one of the blue squares. You okay with that?”

She nodded and followed him up. After they threw away their trash, they left the lodge.





Blurb:

Divorced dad Birley Haynes is too busy raising his children and running his family’s music academy to start a relationship. Then Harmony Holdich, his high school sweetheart, returns home to Willow Springs, Vermont for Christmas and falls into his bed. She brings light and fun back into his life, but he can’t brush aside the threatening incidents around his workplace.

Harmony hadn’t expected a complication like Birley, especially so soon after the death of her unfaithful husband. With her life a mess, she plans to move across the country and start over. All she can offer him is a fling, but her heart yearns for more.

When the threats rise, how will Birley keep his children safe and convince Harmony to give love another chance?

#MFRWsteam - January 12, 2020 - A Dom's Dilemma - "Better get another towel" #Contemporary #BDSM #SpankingRomance


When a strict Dom demands openness and honesty from a reluctant submissive, she fears she'll lose him if he ever discovers the truth about her past.



Excerpt:

In this scene, after an intense weekend together during which Jim Evans administers a particularly harsh punishment to Kelly Franklin, he is making love to her for the first time back in her apartment. 

Grabbing her legs, he positioned her feet on the edge of the bed. She tried to scoot her butt back, but he shook his head and pulled it closer to him. "No. Stay like this. First things first, I want to take a little taste of my treat before I sink into it."

Then directing her to lie back and relax, he lowered his mouth to the shiny pink morsel that beckoned for his lips and teeth and caught the hint of a familiar woodsy fragrance. He preferred her usual fragrance of strawberries, but the aromatic scent of pine perfuming her now still brought a smile to his face. Little thief.

"Jim?" she asked tremulously as he placed his lips against her nether ones.

"No torture today, sugar. You may come when you're ready," he answered, positive he knew what her shaky query meant.

"Thank you, Sir," she replied on a sigh, and he smiled as he coaxed her toward a powerful orgasm, enjoying the sweet, salty taste which was uniquely her. He could feel her whole body tightening as if she was about to explode, so he lightly nipped her clit, to bring her over. Arching up, she suddenly gripped his hair. They were both too far into things for him to scold, but what neither of them expected was the moment she cried out, she literally flooded his face and mouth with her climax. The lady ejaculated more than he did. He stayed with her until she calmed, and her hands fell to her side, then he inched back.

"Well. That was a bit unexpected," he said, licking his lips, relieved he did like her taste, since he'd pretty much gotten a mouth full of it.

She lifted her head, then saw what she'd done. "Oh, my God! I'm so sorry," she said, leaping off the bed to fetch him a towel, which she next used to wipe down his face, until he took the terrycloth out of her grasp and finished the job himself.

"How embarrassing," she whispered, looking as if she might cry.

"No need," he assured her. "A lot of ladies do that, though it's the first time I've ever gotten it so fully in the face."

"I didn't know. I mean. I've never done that before."

"Really?" he asked, feeling more than a little proud of himself. "You normally don't come with so much…enthusiasm?"

She shook her head, then started to smile. "Never."

"Never?" he asked on a laugh. Then she came down on top of him, laughing almost as hard as he was. She curled up on his lap and hugged him as she gave into the humor of the situation.

"Oh. My. God. You should have seen your face," she said between gasps.

"Yeah, I can imagine how I looked. But I think you're gonna need to get another towel, darlin', because I intend to get you so riled up, you're gonna flood this bed but good." 


Blurb:

Kinky happenings in rural New England.

Kelly Franklin is not your "normal" submissive. In fact, there's some question as to whether she's a submissive at all. She seeks the protection a Dom can give her without paying the price a Dom exacts. Unfortunately, when Master Evans takes her in hand, she pays double. 

James Evans has been a police detective for sixteen years and an active participant in the local BDSM scene for even longer.  The fact that Kelly Franklin, a pretty and feisty submissive, scurries off like a frightened rabbit every time she sees him, intrigues him both as a Dom and a detective.  So, when a fellow police officer mentions he's looking for a new Dom to top Kelly, Jim eagerly signs up for the job. 

As a Dom, Jim is pleased by Kelly's open responsiveness, but as a police detective, he is determined to solve the enigma she presents.  When he discovers Kelly has not only been keeping secrets from him, she has lied, he is more than willing to drape Kelly bare butt over his knee for a spanking--until she finally tells him the truth.

About the Author:

Though A Dom's Dilemma is Kathryn R. Blake's first BDSM novel and second spanking romance (a romance where spanking takes a prominent place in the plot), it is not the first book she has written in which the hero spanks the heroine.  In fact, most of her novels have some sort of spanking in them.  To date, all of her heroes are Dominant, alpha males who are extremely protective of the women they love.  However, part of that protectiveness includes the desire for a certain amount of control.  They do not suffer defiance or disobedience lightly.  In fact, it is something they refuse to tolerate, and will take firm steps to ensure the undesirable behavior is not repeated.

Besides writing, Kathryn enjoys traveling, reading, attending the theatre, and is a passionate lover of animals, so much so that in 2015 a stray cat adopted her. The stray now sleeps in Kathryn's bed.  In addition, she has taken up the expensive hobby of making and selling jewelry
