Spanking Stories Book Club: The Doctor's Wife by Casey McKay

Sue Lyndon is here to lead the chat about Casey McKay's The Doctor's Wife. What a wonderful way to spend the day after Christmas. 

Thanks for joining us today on Spanking Stories Book Club! It’s the day after Christmas, and I certainly hope everyone who celebrates had a wonderful day with family and friends.

Today we are discussing the final story in the What the Doctor Ordered medical play boxed set, The Doctor’s Wife by Casey McKay, which is also now available as a single release. A big thanks to the lovely Celeste Jones for hosting Natasha Knight, Trent Evans, Casey McKay, Tara Finnegan, and me for the last several weeks.

The Doctor’s Wife blurb:
Christina knew when she married Dr. Dan Connolly that it would be the best decision of her life, but as the years have passed and work and everyday concerns have piled up, their passion has begun to cool. Dan is supportive and understanding, but when Christina becomes so busy and stressed that she stops eating properly, he realizes he must step in to ensure that his wife starts taking care of herself again.

Dan makes it clear that things need to change, and Christina soon learns that defying the man who is both her doctor and her head of household will earn her a trip over his knee for a bare-bottom spanking. When Christina makes matters worse by lying to him, Dan decides to give her the type of thorough, embarrassing medical attention which will teach her a lesson she won’t soon forget. But will Christina continue to resist her husband’s dominance, or will she learn to embrace the submission she can’t help craving?

1. Dan and Christina get up to some naughty, naughty things while in semi-public places. For me, this totally added to the sexiness of what they were doing. The prospect of “getting caught” as well as the “wow, they want each other so badly they can’t wait until they get home” factor kept me turning the pages. Have you ever gotten up to some naughty fun in a public place? Did you get caught?
2.  Christina really wants to go back to work and Dan is very supportive of her dreams. I really liked that about him, and he was willing to help her out at home to some extent with the kids too. But she does end up having some difficulties balancing her new job with kids and marriage. Have you ever had a difficult time adjusting to a new period in your life? What happened?

3. During Christina’s stressful time trying to balance work and home life, she stops taking care of herself properly and is skipping lots of meals, and not eating to healthy when she does manage to grab a bite. Dan is quick to step in and help her change her eating habits once he realizes what’s going on. He even gets her to eat vegetables, which are her least favorite food. This got me thinking… would you rather take ten sizeable bites of your least favorite food OR take a spanking?

Spanking Stories Book Club: Her Old Fashioned Doctor by Sue Lyndonn

Take a break from Christmas shopping to discuss some good old fashioned spankings and naughty medical play. Thanks for stopping by. 

Tara Finnegan is here to lead the discussion of Sue Lyndon's Her Old-Fashioned Doctor By Sue Lyndon
#1.  The start of Her Old-Fashioned Doctor saw Melissa walk in on her fiancé while he was entertaining prostitutes in her home. Wisely (I thought) she got in her car, and drove right on out of town. Her journey was aimless but opened a whole new life to her. Can you ever imagine embarking on an aimless journey like that, either to escape what was left behind or just for the adventure of it? If so, where do you think you would like to head for first?
#2.  Initially, Melissa had pretty much put her life on hold, pandering to her parents’ and fiancé’s views on what she should do with her life (which was basically to be groomed into the perfect society wife, not thinking of her own career.) This pigeonholing for women was certainly a feature of life for many years. Do you feel it is still a feature nowadays, and if so how widespread do you think it?   
#3.  Even from the get go, Melissa and John’s flirtation makes references to woodsheds, and switches and it’s obvious that they both have a common interest in D/s. John cottons on to her submissive desires very quickly, and uses that to encourage her to have a medical exam he feels she really needs. I found it really hot that he could switch her on like that, just with words, teasing her and have her comply, and I honestly forgot about the doctor/patient issue, or whether he might be overstepping any grounds! How did that make you as the reader feel? Can you switch off the normal rules of society and ethics while reading a contemporary erotic romance and get into the moment?
#4.  John was one of my favourite type of dominants – a  great mix of playful alpha, using Melissa’s own desires to create hot but almost playful scenarios, but then when the time warranted, he was more than ready to deliver as the strict Dom. Do you prefer strict, playful or a mix in your fictional Doms?

After she catches her fiancé cheating on her, Melissa packs a suitcase and sets out on a road trip to give herself some time to recover. But things take an unexpected turn when she rear-ends Dr. John Holden’s truck in a tiny rural town and he responds by inviting her for an impromptu dinner date. 

The handsome medic’s charm and take-charge manner—not to mention his willingness to spank her bare bottom if he feels it necessary—all combine to set Melissa’s heart beating faster than it has in a long time. Almost before she knows it, Melissa finds herself falling deeply in love with the old-fashioned doctor, even though she’s only known him for a couple of days. But is her rapidly growing crush on John merely a rebound fling, or can his hold on her heart last forever? 

Publisher’s Note: Her Old-Fashioned Doctor is an erotic romance novel that includes spankings, sexual scenes, medical play, anal play, elements of BDSM, and more. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book. This book is also available as part of a five-book collection entitled What the Doctor Ordered.

Thanks so much for joining in the discussion.

Spanking Stories Book Club: What The Doctor Ordered by Natasha Knight.

Please Welcome Trent Evans who is here to discuss Amy's Strict Doctor by Natasha Knight, part of the What The Doctor Ordered boxed set. 

Hello Everyone! This week, I have the honor and privilege of leading the Boob Club discussion for Natasha Knight’s new medical BDSM release, Amy’s Strict Doctor. I’ve been a fan of Natasha’s for years, and I think she always writes a hot book. However, with this one? I think she’s outdone herself here with the hotness. DAYUM. Okay, fan boi eruption over.

Now to the discussion. I’ve got a few questions below regarding the book, but one of the things I wanted to say here was that though this book is medical BDSM (and wow, it’s goodJ), it’s a lot more, too. There is plenty of spanking and corporal punishment, Domestic Discipline, absolutely white-hot D/s dynamics, and a warm, endearing relationship between the heroine Amy, and her loving, yet stern husband, Dr. Cade Hollister.
So, if some of you readers out there might feeling ambivalent about a medical BDSM theme, I hope you’ll still give this one a try, as it’s got more for you than just medical BDSM.
Now, on to the questions:

1. Strict Doms –I love them (obviously), and Natasha’s Doms are often the take-no-bullshit variety – which is one of the many reasons I love her work. In Amy’s Strict Doctor though, Cade is probably one of the strictest Doms I’ve seen from Natasha yet. I loved him! Perhaps it’s the fact that he’s a doctor – and as such he’s someone used to giving orders that must be obeyed – that somehow distills and amplifies the Dom personality type? I don’t know, but damn, it worked in this bookJ
For you as readers though, at what point does a Dom become too strict? Is there some sort of line for you that dare not be crossed? A specific act? Or is it more of a general feel, the emotions that the depiction of the Dom stirs within you? (Feel free to add some examples – makes for some good book recs!)

2. In the book, Cade uses both positive and negative reinforcement to spur Amy to finish her schooling and follow the directions/instructions of her tutor. I thought it introduced good tension (of both the dramatic and sexual varieties) – and created plenty of opportunities to punish his wayward wife.
What about you? Do you like the idea of the Dom using punishment in such a way, a means to compel the heroine to act of behave in certain ways? Or is that a little too controlling for comfort?

3. Cade is significantly older than his wife, and personally, I LOVE stories where the hero is significantly older (as long as said heroine is of age, of course). For some reason that age differential not only adds a certain sexual je ne sais quoi, but it also is usually chock full of built in conflict due to different maturity and life experience levels.
Do you like that sort of differential? If so, why? If not, tell us what bothers you about it. Are there any other types of age differences that you prefer (or avoid)?
4. In the book, Amy’s tutor, professor Jonathan Brown, plays an interesting role in the story (no spoilers). I really enjoyed the dynamic Natasha set up, where Amy almost had (in effect) two Doms watching over her, and making her tow the line – or else. The fact that Amy and Cade were married, and that Cade not only approved but encouraged such a dynamic made this even more enjoyable to me as a reader.
This brings to mind a question I have regarding stories where a married couple is the focus. Sometimes readers can be very, very specific about what they will allow and what they won’t in these types of stories. When the protagonists involved are married, do you enjoy the addition of another male character to the dynamic in a fully consensual context (and no, I am not saying this happens in the story – remember, no spoilers!), whether it’s simple additional sexual tension all the way up through disciplining (and more) the heroine?
I love it – even if the book isn’t a ménage – as It adds so much to the sexual heat of a story. Add in the D/s, medical, or Domestic Discipline aspects and it’s off the charts hot. What do you think?

Celeste, thank you again for letting me blabber on your blog today;) And HUGE thanks to Natasha Knight, Casey McKay, Tara Finnegan, Sue Lyndon, and Stormy Knight Publications for allowing me to be a part of this awesome box setJ

Spanking Stories Book Club: The Right Treatment by Tara Finnegan

Casey McKay is here today to lead the discussion of The Right Treatment by Tara Finnegan from What the Doctor Ordered, a collection of medical BDSM books. Ooooo so naughty. 

Thank you so much for hosting us these few weeks, Celeste! I had so much fun being a part of the box set What the Doctor Ordered with my fellow authors and now I am having a ton of fun discussing each book!

If you are stopping by for Spanking Stories Book Club I hope you had time to read Tara Finnegan's awesome book from the box set, it's called The Right Treatment:

Things have changed quite a bit in the years since Aoife Devine last saw Matt McDaid, her childhood crush. Working as a doctor on the emergency ward has hardened him, and parties, alcohol, and one-night-stands have taken their toll on her. But when a bad batch of ecstasy sends Aoife to the hospital, she finds herself with no choice but to accept Matt’s help, even if that means obeying his rules. Matt proves fully prepared to back up his orders with a sound spanking, and Aoife soon learns that cooperating with his treatments is not optional, no matter how humiliating they may be for her.

If you've not had a chance to read it yet, you can still join in the conversation! But I hope you also take the time to read this hot and sexy book!

1. In the story Matt and Aoife know each other from years prior. Do you think this element of the story made the characters interact differently with each other than if Matt had just met Aoife for the first time in the hospital?
In general, does it add a layer to any story to have the characters already have a common history, or some sort of relationship, rather than just meeting and getting to know each other at the start of the story?

2. Matt ends up delivering a 'tough love' approach to Aoife's addiction and at times ends up seeming cold when he delivers some of her punishments. Personally, I liked that Matt was a flawed character and we learn what motivates his treatment of Aoife. But do you find that she forgave him too quickly? Or accepted his treatment too willingly?
What is your take on a hero with a flaw? Or would you rather they be the embodiment of perfection?

3. As in many of Tara Finnegan's books The Right Treatment touches on some heavy topics and dramatic scenes. In my opinion she balances this out with some lighthearted moments and quick witted humor.
What's your opinion on the presence of drama in a romance novel? Do you think it has a place or would you rather a simpler storyline?

Thank you again, Celeste and I look forward to discussing this book with everyone!
