Spanking Stories Book Club: Getting Ready For 2014

Can you believe it's the last Friday of 2013 already?

That means it's time to get ready for 2014. So fire up your eReaders and get ready for some good reads.

Friday, January 3---Winter Spanks Hop

Friday, January 10---- Swift Justice by Dinah McLeod. Discussion by Maddie Taylor.

Blurb: Twenty-nine years old and still without a husband, Maggie Swift does her best to be happy living on the family ranch. Now that her brothers are both married, however, she cannot help but feel she is being pushed out of her own home by her sisters-in-law… especially Libby. Her brother does his best to keep his bride in line—often with a firm hand applied to her bare bottom—but Maggie cannot seem to reconcile with the beautiful, feisty shopkeepers-daughter. 

She has all but resigned herself to miserable spinsterhood, until an absentminded stroll through town leaves her standing unexpectedly in front of a rough-looking saloon. It is there that she is confronted and scolded by the imposing, ruggedly-handsome Clayborn Callahan. Offered a ride with him, Maggie accepts, promising that she will not be missed for a few hours though she knows her brothers will be worried sick. 

When her lie is found out, Maggie discovers that her new suitor is more than ready to take her out back and make her cut a switch. In spite of her sore bottom, Maggie feels something for Clayborn that she has never felt for any man, and she is excited when he asks to come calling again. She wonders, though, if she can be the well-behaved woman he expects, or whether she will find herself over his knee more often than her pride and her tender bottom can handle. 

Friday, January 17---Marshal's Law by Maddie Taylor. Discussion by Dinah McLeod

BlurbWhen Janelle Prescott is thrown from her car as it careens off of a slippery road, she expects to wake up in a hospital. Instead, to her utter disbelief, she wakes up in a jail cell which looks like something from an old western movie set. It is there, hurt and alone, with no idea what happened or how she will get back home, that Janelle first meets Aaron Jackson. As she regains her wits, however, Janelle realizes that something is terribly amiss, and her worst fears are confirmed when she learns that Aaron is the marshal of Cheyenne County, Wyoming… and the year is 1878. 

When an injured, apparently addle-headed woman falls into his lap, Aaron takes it upon himself to keep her safe and nurse her back to health. Truth be told, he is instantly attracted to her despite her sharp tongue and her bizarre story—a story which he is quickly forced by the evidence to accept as genuine. After Aaron takes her under his wing and into his family’s home, the two clash frequently, but Aaron is more than ready to lay down the law… even if that means a good, hard, bare-bottom spanking for this feisty brat from another era. 

Having little choice, Janelle must learn how to live as a woman in 1878, including submitting to the firm-handed marshal who, in spite of everything, seems to have laid claim to her heart. 

Friday, January 24---A new release from Renee Rose. More info soon. 

A thistle is a prickly beautiful thing, dangerous when your skin is bare and soothing when seen on the Scottish hillsides. Astraea is beautiful and dangerous as well - dangerous to Cal Chesterfield's peace of mind. She's been a wild child for years, delving into things foreign to Cal's more conservative nature, but she appears to want to change. She needs to learn some self-respect and acknowledge that she's more than a pretty plaything. 

Cal wants to change, too. He's too staid, too conventional, and he's been a failure at making relationships work. It is time for Cal to step out of the square box he's built for himself and try something different, someone different. Astraea is a perfect change of pace. But can Cal really change and loosen up? More importantly, can Astraea calm down and find a way to love herself so she can love another?

Merry Christmas

Over the last few days I have posted part of the Christmas story here on my blog. I hope you have enjoyed it as much as I have. It's nice to take a minute or two and remember 'the reason for the season'. 
Wishing you all a joyous Christmas! 

In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. (This was the first census that took place while[a] Quirinius was governor of Syria.) And everyone went to their own town to register.
So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to himand was expecting a child. While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them.
And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. 11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. 12 This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”
13 Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,
14 “Glory to God in the highest heaven,
    and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”
15 When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.”
16 So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger. 17 When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, 18 and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. 19 But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart. 20 The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told.

The Christmas Story---Joseph's Encounter With An Angel

Matthew 1:18-25

New International Version (NIV)

Joseph Accepts Jesus as His Son

18 This is how the birth of Jesus the Messiah came about[a]: His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be pregnant through the Holy Spirit. 19 Because Joseph her husband was faithful to the law, and yet[b] did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly.
20 But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. 21 She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus,[c] because he will save his people from their sins.”
22 All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: 23 “The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel”[d] (which means “God with us”).
24 When Joseph woke up, he did what the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took Mary home as his wife.25 But he did not consummate their marriage until she gave birth to a son. And he gave him the name Jesus.

The Christmas Story

In anticipation of Christmas, I am taking a little turn from my usual posts and thought I'd share parts of the Christmas story over the next few days. I hope you enjoy it. 

Luke 1:26-38

New International Version (NIV)

The Birth of Jesus Foretold

26 In the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, 27 to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. 28 The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.”
29 Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. 30 But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary; you have found favor with God. 31 You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus. 32 He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, 33 and he will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever; his kingdom will never end.”
34 “How will this be,” Mary asked the angel, “since I am a virgin?”
35 The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come on you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called[a] the Son of God. 36 Even Elizabeth your relative is going to have a child in her old age, and she who was said to be unable to conceive is in her sixth month. 37 For no word from God will ever fail.”
38 “I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. “May your word to me be fulfilled.” Then the angel left her.

Spanking Stories Book Club: An Old Fashioned Christmas by

Please Welcome Cara Bristol who has graciously offered to host this week's discussion of An Old Fashioned Christmas by Nickie Flynn. 

By Cara Bristol
A few authors I know raved about An Old-Fashioned Christmas on Facebook. Based on their recommendations, I decided I had to read it. After a woman witnesses a mob hit, she is placed in the witness protection program. With a new identity and unable to contact her family, she faces a solitary Christmas until she’s invited to spend the holiday’s with a co-workers family. But what her friend doesn’t tell her is that her family is “old-fashioned,” a euphemism for spanko. The entire family practices domestic discipline.

Here’s the blurb:
Melissa Mitchell is going to be alone at the holidays, at least until her new friend Terri Coleman takes pity and invites her to the family home in rural North Carolina for an old-fashioned family Christmas. It sounds wonderful, and to top it all off, Terri has a single and very eligible brother, Richmond police detective Joe Coleman. 

Then Terri drops her bomb shell: the Coleman family is old-fashioned in more ways that one, and Terri has recently fallen afoul of her brother, who took care of the situation in the time-honored way. Could it happen again? There are issues unresolved between Terri and her brother, and Terri feels she needs to warn Melissa that no-nonsense Joe just might resort to spanking if he thought the situation warranted it. And that's not all: Terri's other brother and his wife are in a domestic discipline relationship, and are very open about it. 

As irritated as Melissa is that Terri has dragged her into family drama, Melissa also has a secret of her own: she's been fascinated with tales of old-fashioned over-the-knee-discipline forever, and the idea that that could occur in real life seems too much to believe. At first, the holiday celebration couldn't be better. Melissa and Joe feel an instant attraction, fueled by the fact that Joe quickly figures out that Melissa's interest in what had recently happened to Terri goes beyond mere 
concern for her friend. 
Old-Fashioned Christmas by Nickie Flynn
But Melissa has another secret, a dark terrifying reality from her past. Just when she feels the most safe, through an innocent mistake, the secret is revealed endangering everyone in the family. And Joe will do anything to protect his family…. 

I found much to enjoy with this book. I loved the set-up. From the moment I discovered the heroine was in witness protection, and the hero was a police detective, I waited with delicious anticipation for trouble to start. And I wasn’t disappointed! For the most part, I thought Joe Coleman was a hunky, sexy hero—although I felt he overstepped his bounds on a couple of occasions. An Old-Fashioned Christmas is well-written and very well plotted for a spanking romance—it could have stood on its own without the spanking.

But here are some opening questions:

In the Coleman family, the parents spank the children, the husbands spank the wives, and brothers spank sisters. And they are open about it. Did you like the family angle? What did you think about the family’s openness about their domestic discipline practices?

Terri (the sister) had made some poor choices and her brother stepped in to correct her. Did you like the spanking of one sibling by another or do you prefer that spankings be limited to the H/h? What did you think about the fact that a brother spanked his adult sister on the bare in such a way that he could see her lady parts? Is that too intimate of an act? Did he cross a line? In real life, how would you feel about a brother spanking an adult sister in an attempt to improve her poor behavior?

When Joe becomes suspicious of Melissa’s identity he rifles through her purse and wallet. Do you feel he was justified? How else could he have handled it?
The book ends, not on a cliffhanger, but still open-ended because there will be another book. Did you want more closure or were you satisfied with the way it ended?

What kind of boundaries should be set in a DD arrangement?

September, 1813
Warm water trickled down her breasts and dripped from the hardened peaks of Lady Katherine Winchester’s nipples. She leaned back in the copper tub, stretched her arms out along the sides, and luxuriated in the watery cocoon.
Her black hair flowed toward the floor as she pressed backward then propped her feet on the bottom rim of the tub, doing her best to recline.
Her husband, Lord Thomas Winchester, knelt next to the tub. He dipped a large sponge into the bath. Once it filled to saturation, he squeezed the water over his wife’s body with obvious enjoyment.
She closed her eyes and reveled in the decadent sensations of the water sliding down her naked flesh. The warm liquid flowed over her and dripped back into the balmy pool where it started and remained there until the sponge sopped it up for another cascade across her prickled flesh.
Thomas continued tormenting her with rivulets from the sponge, paying particular attention to her breasts, which he lathered and rinsed repeatedly. He strove to be a thoughtful and thorough husband.
She sighed and a soft smile played across her lips.
Husband. When she had first met Thomas, ‘husband’ was the last thought she had about him. Rogue. Ruffian. Barbarian. Those were the terms she used to describe him.
He remained all those things, but in addition, she now knew him to be a loving, protective, and dominant husband.
Though they had married very soon after his arrival in London, due to scandal rather than an urgent desire to be wed, Katherine could look back upon those few short months contentedly.
Except for the spankings.
Some of the spankings.
By this time, Thomas had moved from the care and cleanliness of her breasts to a detailed inspection of her womanhood. He reached below her and tapped her bottom, signaling her to rise up. Once she did, he slid a small wooden stool beneath her hips in order to support her lower half for easier care and attention.
Her knees fell to the sides of their own volition, opening her to his view. “Mm. Good girl,” he said and the husk in his voice tightened the knot of desire twisting in her stomach. He sponged her thighs with slow deliberation until the flesh of her flanks quivered with longing.
“You are very meticulous, my lord,” she whispered.
“I like to take care of what is mine,” he said and her heart warmed and fluttered at his statement of possession. He continued working the sponge, stroking the inside of her thighs until he reached the part of her body which was already slick and wet. He discarded the sponge and used his fingers instead.
He traced a gentle path around the opening and Katherine’s toes began to tingle and wiggle in anticipation. Thomas nipped one of her toes between his teeth, smiled up at her and said, “Hold still.”
Katherine gripped the sides of the tub to quell her movements. After tormenting her with his incessant circling of her feminine core with his fingertip, Thomas inserted one, then two, then three fingers into her waiting opening. She arched against the back of the tub for leverage and pressed into his hand as he worked in and out of her sex.
The languid feeling of relaxing in a warm bath vanished and hot, burning, desire took its place. She clasped his fingers to her core with her own hands, urging him deeper. “Oh, Thomas,” she breathed. “It feels so good.”
She clutched his wrists and pressed back against the fingers that filled her so thoroughly. Her hips rocked back and forth, nearly upsetting the wooden stool which Thomas placed beneath.
Just when she thought she might explode in climax, he lifted her from the tub and carried her in his arms toward the bed. “Thomas!” she said, “I am soaking wet. You cannot put me on the bed.”
“Where is your sense of adventure?” he chuckled, though he did stop short of dropping her onto the bed and stood her next to a post at the foot of the mattress. He grasped her hands firmly in his and placed them  around the post saying, “You had better hold on, my lady, because you are about to be good and truly fucked.”
“Such language, my lord!” If being married to a barbaric American had taught her anything, it was that rough times sometimes required rough language. His primal talk fired her primal urges, and she squirmed in anticipation of his promised action. She would never admit that his language made her insides molten and tingly with desire. She was a lady, after all.
Thomas doffed his clothing and stood behind her.   Tthe heat and hardness of his body radiated over her backside. He tilted her hips up at the proper angle for his entry. “Tell me what you want me to do,” he leaned over her back and growled into her ear.
She tightened her grip on the post and spread her feet apart in preparation. “I-I would like for you to make love to me,” she said, her voice barely a whisper. Despite the many intimacies they had shared, and her acceptance of Thomas’ coarse talk, she could not bring herself to speak so improperly. 
A resounding crack echoed off the walls of the bed chamber as her husband’s hand made contact with the wet flesh of her backside.
“If you can still talk like a lady, you must not want it badly enough,” he said and brought his hand down again on the same spot. “You do want it, do you not?” Before she could respond, he landed two more firm swats on the opposite cheek.
“Yes,” she said pressing her forehead against the smooth wood of the bedpost to hide the blush on her cheeks. “You know I do.”
Thomas chuckled. “Then we agree. There is just one small thing standing in the way of our fulfillment.” Thomas gave her rump another smack that landed on the upturned curve of her cheek. “You know what you must do.”
Katherine could feel the heat spreading across her bottom to join the hot desire roiling in her nether region. She knew what he wanted her to say. She wished to please him, and even more so, she wished for him to fulfill the urgent need thrumming through her body. Those desires warred with years of rigid upbringing and strict adherence to propriety.
“Oh no,” she said in horror, “I could never say such a thing, my lord.”
He stroked his hand across her bottom and kneaded the hot flesh roughly between his fingers. He moved closer and laid the thickness of his arousal along the cleft of her ass, then slid it downward to press just outside the opening of her sex.
A trickle of desire slid down the inside of her thigh and Katherine wondered if she would be able to maintain her control. She took a deep breath and acquiesced to his demand.  
“What would you like me to say, my lord?” She clung to the bed post and pressed her backside toward him.
He continued to keep himself poised at the opening of her sex. “Repeat after me,” he said.
“Please,” she said.
She said nothing.
Another swat landed on her backside. “Say it.” His voice rasped hoarse with desire.
“I cannot.”
He pressed the firm evidence of his arousal closer to her wet center. “You must.”
She wanted him. She wanted him so badly.
“Fuck,” she said, her desire and confidence building simultaneously.
Smack, smack.
Katherine clenched the bedpost in both hands, heat scorched across her ass and all she wanted was to be filled with her husband’s throbbing cock.
“Please. Fuck. Me. Please fuck me.” She screamed the words and when she did, Thomas jammed into her from behind, one hand around her waist to steady her, the other buried in the thick tresses of her hair as he pulled her closer and gave her just what she demanded.

Happy Birthday to PK Corey and Cassie's Space

I am pleased to welcome PK Corey to my blog today to celebrate the release of her first book, Cassie’s Space. And if that isn’t enough of a good reason to celebrate, it’s also PK’s birthday.

Celeste Jones: Happy Birthday, PK. What are you going to do to celebrate?

PK Corey: Thanks Celeste. I’ve been celebrating all week! Tonight we’re eating out with friends – three of us have December birthdays and tomorrow we’ll celebrate my MIL’s birthday.

Celeste Jones: Cassie’s Space, which just came out a few days ago, is your first book. Can you describe what this week has been like for you?
PK Corey: I think I’ve been feeling more nervous excitement than anything else. I’m pretty sure those who like spanking will enjoy Cassie’s Space. But I’ve also told many vanilla friends about the book. I’m very curious about their reactions.

Celeste Jones: Can you tell us a bit about Cassie’s Space? What’s the story about? Where did the idea come from?

PK Corey: Cassie and Tom are a more mature couple than you’ll find in most spanking stories.  Their marriage has lasted decades and they are still deeply, romantically in love. But Tom is an old-fashioned man and he insists Cassie behave like a lady at all times. She tries, really she does, but sometimes things just get away from her. Unfortunately for Cassie, Tom has the perfect hairbrush to bring things back in line.
Cassie wandered into my head when I was only eleven years old. My family drove from the east coast to California and back – 6,000 miles. Reading made me carsick so I daydreamed for the twenty-eight days we were gone. Cassie was grown then, probably forty. She was a minor character in an elaborate make believe family I created. As the years went by and I began to gain on Cassie in age, my daydream stories began to focus on her. I swear I’m not crazy, but Cassie seems to tell me her stories – all I do is type.

Celeste Jones: I believe that you’ve been blogging for quite a while. Can you tell us about your blogs and which ones are active now?

PK Corey: I have three blogs. Cassie’s Space is the name of my first blog, which I began in June of 2006. That’s where I first began writing Cassie’s stories. I still post stories there, though I haven’t been able to lately and I miss it. My ‘main’ blog is New Beginning, which is almost like an online diary. That site in the real me and tells about coming out to my husband and our seven year journey to find where spanking fits into our lives. My newest blog is PK Corey’s Reading Room. I think of the reading room my ‘writing site’ where I am getting to know other writers as well as putting up snippets giving people a flavor of my writing.

Celeste Jones: Is there another Cassie and Tom book in the works?

PK Corey: There sure it! Lazy Day just accepted my second Cassie book and it may be out as early as February.

Celeste Jones: Do you have plans to write stories about anyone other can Cassie?

PK Corey: I have written other stories and posted them for Fantasy Friday. One other couple I wrote about has actually crossed over into Cassie’s world. As Cassie’s stories continue there seem to be new characters moving in all the time.  Someday I may want to take a break and write other things, but for now I enjoy just sticking with Cassie and seeing where she leads.

Celeste Jones: Anything else you ‘d like to share?

PK Corey: I just want to say how much I’ve enjoyed the entire writing process. I want to thank you for having me here and for being so patient with my tons of questions. I’ve met so many writers lately and they have been so friendly and helpful. I feel I’m learning more and more as I meet people in the spanko writing world.

Cassie's Space Blurb: 

Meet Cassie, a former wild child, who meets her match, and creates the match of a lifetime. To nearly all who know her now, Cassie is a vivacious, sweet southern lady, who is the epitome of grace and proper behavior. Look a tiny bit closer and you’ll see that Cassie has another side – the one whose language could make a sailor blush as she drinks him under the table. 

Thanks to her loving husband Tom, who even after thirty years of marriage, never hesitates to put Cassie over his knee when she strays too far from his view of ladylike behavior, few people other than close old friends know this side of Cassie exists. 

Cassie and Tom show that love and passion are not the sole property of the young. Love and passion grows and changes with age. While aging may bring on challenges – the love and passion between these two people only grows stronger.

Spanking Stories Book Club: Year in Review

Good Morning! We are doing things a bit differently this month since I'm sure you're all busy and don't necessarily have time to be reading and getting your geek on each week. If you have taken the time to stop by today, thanks. I know this time of year is crazy and I appreciate it.

I started this book club last January doing one book per month, but then moved to doing one book per week. Fortunately several people agreed to host the book club to talk about books they'd read in order to lighten my burden of trying to read a book a week and also to bring a bit of diversity in story choices.

If I was a good blogger, I'd list links here to all the discussions and books we read. But, I'm not, however, I will point you to my blog archive over in the side bar which should list all the times the Spanking Story Book Club met.

Just to jog your memory, I'll list a few of the books we talked about

Body Politics by Cara Bristol
Desire in Any Language by Anastasia Vitsky
To Love A Woman by Jade Carey
Rules of War by Sue Lyndon
The Devil of Whiskey Row by Renee Rose
Coming to Terms--We read one story per week from this anthology.
Spanking Ms. Whitman by Kate Richards
The Headstrong Ms. Henley by Emma K. Gardner
Bound for Disappointment by Sheri Savill
Correcting Kathy by Patricia Green
Destiny's Chance by Cara Bristol
Marked by the Alpha by Adaline Raine
The Grass Could Be Greener by Constance Masters
Acting Lessons by Kathryn R. Blake
Harder Choices by Patty Devlin
Spanking the Naughty Bride by Leena Darling
Surrender Your Grace by Maddie Taylor
Cursed Water by Casey McKay
Breeder by Cara Bristol
The Winner by Patricia Green
Switch by Kate Richards

Okay... I think I listed all of them. Wow. That's a lot of books. And all of them were enjoyable too.

So, which books were your favorites? Did any discussions lead you to go and buy a copy of the book? Did you read any books that you might not have otherwise?

Any suggestions for next year?

The Naughty List Week Concludes with Saved by Renee Rose

What a fun time it's been with all the ladies from The Naughty List sharing personal Christmas stories as well as naughty excerpts from their books which make up this boxed set. I hope this week has put you all in the Christmas spirit, or at least in the mood for something..... 

Today, Renee Rose shares from her story, Saved.

Jack could not sink lower than working as a rent-a-cop at the department store during Christmas, but with the injury to his leg during his tour to Iraq, his preferred careers are closed to him. The only bright spot of the job is watching Melinda, the vivacious brunette behind the cosmetics counter. When she takes off after a shoplifter, needlessly endangering herself, he threatens a spanking and to his surprise, finds she is amenable to his punishment.
Enamored with the dominant but wounded warrior who comes to her rescue, Melinda lets Jack take her in hand, but finds herself repeatedly shut out emotionally. Not understanding it results from self-loathing over his injury rather than a lack of interest, she writes him off. But when real danger threatens, Jack steps in again.
Can he reveal his true feelings this time? And if so, will her submission to his discipline help him feel like a man again?
This title is part of our holiday “box set” offering, “The Naughty List” - Available for a LIMITED TIME only! Grab this amazing holiday collection of five novellas from some of old-fashioned romance's favorite authors. Each of these five books is all-new for the 2013 Holiday season. Almost 130,000 words of reading for one great low price. (50% less than purchasing separately)


This scene happens the day after Jack first spanked Melinda in the security office, but failed to ask her out afterward.

Melinda’s kick landed precisely on his titanium-plated bone, sending shards of pain shooting up his leg and down his foot. He ignored it, the agony of Melinda’s distress far outweighing it. He caught her around the waist before she reached the door, spinning her back to him and pushing her up against the wall, where he pinned her with his larger frame. He cupped her jaw, holding it so she could not look away.
“Melinda, it’s not like that. I’ve been dying to ask you out. I just--I didn’t do it yesterday because you wouldn’t look at me, and I thought maybe you were giving me the brush-off. Today when you looked mad, I realized I’d screwed up. I’m sorry. Truly. Will you go out with me? Please?”
She studied his face as if considering. Her eyes were big--chocolate brown with gold flecks, expertly made up, of course, without being overdone. She smelled sweet, like citrus or watermelon.
“You gotta cut me some slack,” he wheedled, “I haven’t dated much over the past ten years. I’ve been living with a bunch of soldiers and just hooking up with girls here and there at bars. I’m out of practice.”
She gave a wry smile. “What was your method there, grabbing them around the waist and throwing them up against the wall?”
He immediately relaxed his grip but did not release her jaw. “I’m sorry, did I scare you?”
“No, I kinda liked it,” she murmured.
He moved in closer. “I think I’m starting to get your number,” he said, leaning forward and tasting her glossy lips. They were soft and giving, answering back by parting and allowing his tongue entry. He licked into her mouth, tangling his lips over hers, invading her as his hand dragged down her throat.
When he pulled away, her eyes were shining. “Was that a yes?”
She shrugged. “You had me at the wall-pin.”
He chuckled and stepped back, ready to usher her to the door but his damn ankle was still in a spasm from her kick and he lurched, stumbling to catch himself. He swore inwardly. Nothing like a gimp leg to impress a girl.
“Oh God, did I do that? I kicked your bad leg didn’t I?”
He was about to snap it was nothing when he realized his opportunity. Trying to pivot as gracefully as he could, he raised one eyebrow. “Yes, you did. And you know, little girls who throw kicking tantrums get spanked,” he said firmly. “And it’s going to be a bare bottom spanking this time.”

Favorite Christmas Memory:

Children make Christmas very special--their excitement makes it joyful for everyone. Our first Christmas with our first baby was really beautiful. She was too little, of course, to care about presents, but not too little to enjoy crinkling the wrapping paper or trying to pull the ornaments off the tree. It was a beautiful day so that afternoon we dressed her in a little red onesy Santa suit (with the hat, of course) and went for a hike in a popular canyon. Many others had the same idea and everyone was in the Christmas spirit, greeting the baby and wishing us a Merry Christmas.

Hiking on Christmas? Ahh, to live in a warm climate. Thanks, Renee!
