Spanking Stories Book Club is Back In Session

Sorry for the last minute rescheduling last week. I don't know where my head has been (please do not offer up suggestions for where you think it has been).

So, let's get back to our tour of Coming To Terms. This week we're talking about Alta Hensley's contribution "This Moment".


"This Moment" by Alta HensleyNeely and Caine love each other, but after three years of marriage, they feel like strangers living in the same house. Caine's discipline has lost its edge, and Neely feels neglected and lost. In hopes of rekindling the passion and intimacy they once shared, they set off to spend a week in a lakeside cabin. Just as they began to resolve some of their problems and start to explore erotic spankings again, the demands of Neely's job put a damper on their vacation. Caine hasn't punished Neely in a long time, but he's sick and tired of being pushed away. Will a real session over his knee be enough to get Neely to finally open up?
"This Moment" gives us a glimpse of Neely and Caine from Traditional Love. When I finish a book and then later think "I wonder what happened to those two?" I know the book was good.

Apparently things didn't go as well for Neely and Caine as might have been expected, but they figured it out and want to get things back on track.

At the end of this story, Neely decides that she wants to have a baby and be a stay at home mom. What did you guys think of that? What if she'd loved her job or if it had been Caine's suggestion? Would you feel differently?

For those who read Traditional Love, were you surprised that things had gotten off track for Caine and Neeley?

Any other thoughts?

Whew! That's a lot of information, but this is an exciting event. Now, here's my story. This is from my current Work In Progress, Lady Katherine's Comeuppance, which will be published at the end of August by LazyDay Publishing.

Short Blurb: The unexpected death of Lady Katherine's husband creates upheaval. The arrival of Thomas Winchester, a distant cousin of the deceased earl and an American, sends the amount of upheaval, and Lady Katherine's hormones, into overdrive.



No, she would have no further thoughts of Thomas Winchester other than as an obstacle to be tackled and managed.

She most certainly would not think about his eyes. No, she would not. No more thoughts of their piercing blueness or the soft wrinkles at their corners when he smiled.

Her hair twisted into a soft braid, she laid her night gown across the foot of her bed and climbed between the sheets naked.

Despite her prior admonitions to herself regarding further thoughts of Thomas, she refused to consider him Lord Winchester, she could not help herself. Although he had not done anything inappropriate, she could tell he was not like the simpering, bowing, blustering men of her acquaintance.

This American exuded maleness in every sense of the word. And probably a few senses of which she was unaware.

Her husband had been gone for a year. And prior to his death, their marital congress had been infrequent and generally uninspired, though Charles had always been enthusiastic and appreciative.

Despite her many flirtations, Charles had been her only lover. She had resigned herself to a lifetime of merely sufficient sexual encounters with her husband. Once she had produced an heir, she had intended to seek out, discreetly, a more skilled paramour. Somehow she knew deep in her being that lovemaking entailed more than she had experienced. And Katherine hated to be left out of anything.

She raised her left hand to stroke her fingers over the deep red of one swollen nipple. Her right hand worked the flesh of her other breast, kneading its weight with her fingers. Imagining the feel of strong, male, work hardened, hands performing the same sensuous task.

Soon the warmth from her breasts spread down her stomach to form a deep pit of desire. Her legs writhed between the sheets as heat pulsed into her female core.

The hand which had been tweaking her nipple to dizzying heights left that task and was buried deep within her slick folds.

She knew she ought to stop. It was sinful and unladylike to pleasure herself in this way. Yet, after a stressful evening in the presence of her husband’s replacement, she felt compelled to finish the task.

With the fingers of one hand she plunged in and out of her wet core. She used the other hand to stroke her fingers across the nub of her desire which swelled and hardened against her touch.

She closed her eyes and began to writhe on her way to a climax. Guttural moans worked their way up her throat and out her mouth.

~o~o~

Thomas studied his new bedchamber. Opulent scarcely described it. In addition to the elaborate furnishings and d├ęcor, he noted with favor that his clothing and other belongings had been unpacked and stored around the room.

He could get used to this.

Yet, beyond the realization that he was now master and lord over a vast estate, his thoughts were focused on one black haired woman. The level of his distraction did not please him.

Emotional attachments only lead to trouble. He had been given an opportunity for a fresh start and he did not intend to allow his heart to get in the way.

He envisioned the way her breasts pressed against the neckline of her gown, shades of rosy nipple slipping into view when she took a particularly deep breath. It had been all he could do to keep from taking her in his arms and plunging his tongue between the creamy swells. When he could stand the anticipation no longer, he would free those luscious breasts from their confines and suckle and tug until she moaned in ecstasy.

His vision felt so real, he would swear her could hear her moans and he grew hard at the sounds of her desire.

Wait. It was her voice. Not moaning, but crying out.

He walked toward the noise and found a door which had escaped his notice previously. Assuming she was under attack from marauders he flung the door open and charged into her adjoining room.

Movement on the bed, also the source of her voice, caught his attention. He moved their purposefully and yanked back the covers prepared to do battle with whatever scalawag was assaulting her.

~o~o~

Eyes closed in ecstasy, Katherine bit her lip in an effort to stifle the erotic sounds escaping her mouth. The pleasure her fingers created in her loins grew from warm to steaming hot and she welcomed the climax building within her like a summer storm on the horizon.

Just as she was about to cross over to a place of utter rapture the covers of her bed were ripped away. As though she had been pelted with cold water, her eyes flew open and her mouth formed an astonished O as she looked up to see Thomas, her bedcovers in one hand, staring down at her. His face showing as much shock as she felt.

 “So, this is how a proper English lady behaves?”
 
 
Will Katherine behave like a proper English lady? I think we all know the answer to that!

#SatSpanks from Coming To Terms



It's Saturday! Today I am featuring a snippet from my story Reconnecting which is part of Coming To Terms.

Blurb: When Daisy's online time begins to interfere with her relationship with her husband, Reece, he takes matters into his own hands. In addition to applying a liberal dose of discipline to her backside which has spent too much time sitting at the computer, he arranges for them to spend some time at a remote resort with no Wi-Fi. Sometimes you have to disconnect in order to reconnect. 


In this opening scene, Reece and Daisy are having a "discussion" about the number of blogs Daisy visited.


            “There was ‘My Bottom Smarts’.”
            “I bet it does.”  Reece cracked into her right cheek again.
            “And ‘Redbooty Woman’.”  Daisy strained to concentrate on an answer and talk while her butt burned from the onslaught of Reece’s firm hand.
            “Sounds appropriate, what else?”
            “’B-bright Bottom’.”
            “Are you making these names up”?  Reece accused.
           
           

Cara Bristol's Wife on the Lam from Coming to Terms

I'm having a great time going back through all the stories in Coming To Terms. If you haven't gotten your copy yet---good news---there are plenty available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.


 
 This week we're talking about Cara Bristol's contribution, Wife On The Lam.
 
After two kids, three moves, and the normal ups and downs of a twenty-two year domestic discipline marriage, Janelle wants to celebrate their wedding anniversary with a luxury vacation. But despite subtle hints like leaving a copy of the Cabana Resort brochure with the Couples' Getaway Package circled in red on her husband's golf magazine, Brent misses all the clues. Worse, he has a business trip on their anniversary! Though her bottom might pay for it later, Janelle decides to take her luxury vacation anyway. Leaving a note and a casserole, she flies off to the resort. She's going to celebrate, with or without him.

If anything proves that he's slacked off on his duties as head of household, this stunt of Janelle's does. Brent had booked the Diamond Package at the Cabana Resort to surprise her and planned to present her with the tickets when she took him to airport for his "business trip." She's ruined the surprise, but he's not going to let her ruin their anniversary. It's time to take his errant wife in hand and get their marriage back on track.

What I particularly enjoyed about this story was its playful nature. I'm a huge fan of Cara's Rod and Cane Society Series, but it was fun to read this story which was so different in its tone and content.

What about everyone else? What did you think of this story? Any scenes that stand out?

How would Janelle and Brent do as Members of the Rod and Cane Society?

Confession Time From Coming To Terms

It's June!
 
For the next seven weeks we are going to be discussing the seven stories from Coming to Terms. We're going to talk about them in the order they appear in the book, so that means story number one is Sue Lyndon's Confession Time.

Blurb: A stay-cation at their lakeside home seems like the perfect way to start summer for Lucy and James - until an unexpected houseguest arrives, spoiling their plans to explore maintenance spanking and other aspects of their budding domestic discipline relationship. Determined to make the most of summer with his wife, James surprises Lucy with a last minute cabin retreat high in the Blue Ridge Mountains. But when Lucy's sister finds out about their DD relationship, she overreacts and assumes the worst of James. Lucy's attempt to smooth the situation over blows up in her face when James discovers her missing. Will hurt feelings, embarrassing confessions, and family drama ruin their summer? Or will James and Lucy find their way through the darkness and back to one another's arms?


Some of the things that stood out for me from this story:

  • I like the way that neither James nor Lucy seem absolutely sure about how the whole DD thing works but they are willing to make the journey together.

  • I could relate to Lucy feeling guilty about how much trouble her family was, especially compared to James'. Not that my family is a huge drama factory, but I think that many people can relate to this idea of "I am always pushing the limits of his patience and I sure don't feel like I deserve it."

  • Which goes along with the next point that I liked (I liked the whole story, I'm just pointing out a couple things for possible discussion): the discussion where James basically says "do you believe me when I say you are forgiven?" What a great point. How many times do we say we're sorry, the other person (partner/spouse) forgives us, and then we don't believe them.
And of course, there was the butt plug. :)

So...what about the rest of you? What did you think of this story? Could you relate to some of the issues I pointed out or some that I didn't?
