It’s Saturday again and I thank you for stopping by for my Saturday Spankings snippet. Blushing Books recently accepted the third in the Cal’s Law Series. I’m very happy and I’ll soon be sharing snippets from the first two to try to get everyone back in a Cal and Jenny mood. Today’s snippet is from Cassie’s Life.
Cassie is done talking to the police about her troubles and her hotel break-in. She’s home with Tom and she wants everything settled in their own way. But Tom’s not quite on board.
“Please, Tom,” I asked, “can we just get it over with?”
“What?” he asked, with a bewildered look.
I was annoyed, was he doing it deliberately? Finally, he realized what I was saying.
“Oh, oh, I see,” he nodded. “No, I don’t think so girl. That was long ago, I told you years ago that nothing you did back then counted. Our marriage began a clean slate for us both.
This wasn’t right. I felt the tiny bubble of fear reforming in my chest. Did he want me to ask for a spanking? That wasn’t fair. I never asked. I just wanted it done.
Tom stared at me, his eyes squinting. I had the feeling of being scanned. Tom reads me so well, not something I’m always fond of, but it’s the truth.
“Do you want me to spank you?” he asked, surprised.
I said nothing. Good grief, no! I didn’t want a spanking but … it’s what we do, it’s how we reconnect, establish our roles and it allows me to let go of the pain I know I’ve caused Tom.
I’d looked down and Tom put his hand on my cheek causing me to look at him again. He rephrased his question.
“Do you need me to spank you?”
I took a deep breath and gave him a tiny nod. “Not for then,” I told him quietly, “for now.”
Cassie’s Life (Book 10)
Ask Cassie about her life on the river and she’ll tell you it’s lovely and peaceful. But while Cassie loves the life she lives, peaceful is not always an accurate description. Whether she’s confronting an armed man who’s in a drunken rage, planning a friend’s wedding or dealing with a ghost in a backwoods lodge, Cassie is going to deal with it the best way she knows how. And peaceful doesn’t always work.
When a mysterious phone call comes for Cassandra Wentworth – Cassie’s past is suddenly back to haunt her in a devastating way. Tom has always said nothing from before the time they met counts, but he didn’t know about this. Sue, Annie, Allie and Jenny are all willing to help, but will it be enough?
