Hello and Happy Saturday! I’ve taken a few Saturdays off the #SatSpanks blog hop, but I’m jumping back in today with a blurb from the end of my first Corbin’s Bend story, Life’s Unexpected Gifts. In this snippet, Troy and Hallie have been setup by their families and the pastor from St. Michaels. Only in Corbin’s Bend can single TiH’s be given punishment spankings after especially naughty confessions. Troy is just putting it together that Hallie had not left town after all and is standing before him waiting for a paddling.
Stepping close to Hallie, he reaches out to hook his fingers into the elastic of her waistband before slowly pulling her panties down to her knees.
“Whoa! What are you doing? I thought this was supposed to be over my panties!”
Troy grabs hold of the thick curtain next, pulling it away from Hallie’s body exposing her beautiful blonde hair dragging onto the floor as her head is bowed towards her restrained wrists. When Troy begins to kneed the pink flesh of her bottom with his warm hand, she tries to flinch away.
“Now, is that any way for a taken-in-hand to behave for her head of the household? I told you, baby. Your punishments will always be on the bare.”
A choked cry fills the room. “Troy? Oh my God, is that you?”
“Yes, honey. If it makes you feel better, we’ve been set up. I didn’t know it was you until about three minutes ago.”
Violence has been part of Hallie Boudreaux’s life for too long. Deciding all men are barbaric abusers, she’s once again on the run away from danger. Desperate to feel safe, if even for a few days, Hallie remembers the only time she had felt truly happy in the last seven years were the summers spent at her Aunt Gina and Uncle Adam’s. Taking a chance her aunt might take her in, Hallie points her dilapidated car towards Corbin’s Bend, praying she makes it there before her clunker takes its last gasp.
Troy Jackson can’t wait to surprise his sister on her 30th birthday. He’s recently moved back to Colorado to be closer to his only relative, Traci, a psychologist living in Corbin’s Bend. The surprise is on Troy when his normally conscientious sister runs amok on her big birthday proving that even intelligent, independent women still need the stern guidance of the men in their lives. Having grown up with loving parents who practiced the domestic discipline way of life, both Traci and Troy subscribe to the founding principles of the Corbin’s Bend community wholeheartedly.
Hallie’s family is thrilled to have her in Corbin’s Bend, but can Hallie come to terms with living in a community based on its endorsement of spanking, a practice Hallie sees as abuse. Can Traci’s counseling help her overcome her fear in order to accept her new life in Corbin’s Bend, or is it Traci’s brother who ultimately has the power to show Hallie that not all men are abusers?
Thanks for stopping by. Time to hop on over to one of these other fine author’s blogs for more spanking fun.
