Saturday Snippet

Welcome to the one of the best blog hop around. I’m very excited about Saturday Spankings today. This is the last Saturday before Cassie’s Space comes out. I’m hoping you have gotten to know Cassie and Tom enough to want to read more about them. If that’s true you can do so this Wednesday.

Today’s snippet takes place in the early years of Cassie and Tom’s marriage, the spanking this is leading up to is what Cassie has, over the years, called her most memorable spanking ever. Cassie realized she might have a slight problem with gambling, she even ask for Tom’s help to stop – unfortunately, stopping was hard and whenever Tom found she had slipped, the ivory brush came out in full force. She did try, but one particular night when they were on a cruise with friends the need to be in the casino overwhelmed her and she snuck out after Tom was asleep. She felt if she got back to the room by four, she just might pull it off. Unfortunately…

Just a bit after three a.m. I looked up to see the most terrifying sight I had seen in my life. Tom stood in the doorway, arms crossed, holding the ivory hairbrush. I was familiar with that clenching, tingling feeling I get when I know I’m going to get a spanking and there’s nothing I can do about it. Well, this was not that feeling. This felt like I had just grabbed a live wire. Every fiber of my being pulse with panic and my mind went black with dread. I knew that Tom meant to spank me right there in the casino in front of friends and strangers alike.


Cassie’s Space will be out December 11th 
I hope you’ll want to read more.

Meet Cassie, a former wild child, who meets her match, and creates the match of a lifetime. Cassie has survived emotionally distant parents and an abusive marriage. Widowed young, with plenty of money, she turns her energies to partying twenty-four/seven, until Tom spots her at a party. 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 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 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 shares many stories of their early marriage, as she tried to adjust to Tom’s belief in the power of the hairbrush. Although Cassie agrees in theory that Tom is the head of their home, she spends much of her time doing exactly what she wants and hoping Tom won’t catch on. Over thirty years later, she still does what she wants and Tom still catches on.

Cassie still doesn’t always act like the perfect lady and doesn’t always manage to follow Tom’s rules. She sneaks off with friends to visit an ‘adult’ toy store and she has begun talking to ‘strangers’ online and blogging about the private life she and Tom share, knowing full well if Tom ever does find out she’ll be sitting sensitively for days to come.

Cassie wouldn’t change her life for anything. As she says, “There are two things I want everyone to take away from our stories. First there is nothing wrong with an old fashioned marriage where the husband guides and protects the wife. There is nothing wrong with him being in charge. There is nothing wrong with him giving the occasional spanking to make sure his wife is fully aware of who is in charge. And, there is certainly nothing wrong with the wife trying to get away with as much as possible.


Second, and most important, I hope our stories convey 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 two people only grows stronger.

Here are more great snippets for your reading pleasure.

    1. Thanks Joelle,
      I love the cover too. Yes there is always that 'tingle' when you think you're going to be spanked, but this was far beyond that.

  6. Oh goodness, is he really going to spank her in public? Right there in the casino? Poor girl, I feel for her. On the other hand though, it seems that this has become a repeat offense for her. So maybe a public spanking will nip her urges for gambling in the butt. ヅ ツ ッ

    1. LA,
      Tom's biggest concern it always Cassie safety and well being. He know a gambling addiction can be very destructive and he is going to see that she stops.

  15. A public spanking....yikes....that would definitely not be good for my spirit. I guess I consider it too private and intimate, but Tom and Cassie are still together so they must have gotten past it, and of course, Tom must not have been put in the ship's brig for assault...I guess that's why it's fiction....lololol. Congratulations on realizing a long held dream!

    1. Cygnet,
      Fiction is great for things like this. Although if you go back to the fifties everyone would have look the other way if they had seem something like this, after all, they would have thought - it's HIS wife.
