**I'm so sorry! This is not a new Saturday Spankings. I signed up with good intentions and the the week got away from me! Our 'Christmas' is tomorrow and the house is full of family and I completely forgot. Please come back next week and I promise to have something new for you! I have put up the new list of participants for this week at the bottom, so go check out the snippets of those who remembered better than I did!
Greeting! I’ve missed the last few Saturday Spankings and I’m happy to be back. I’m glad you’re here too. I’m doing one more snippet from Searching for Home, the fourth in the Cal’s Law series and around the first of the year I’ll share a little from each of my fifteen books.
In today’s snippet Ryan finds out his lovely wife Allie, is a secret smoker. Let’s just say he’s not happy. Knowing how bright his wife truly is he’s confused and wants to know exactly why she started.
“It doesn’t matter,” she muttered, heading into the living room.
“It matters to me,” Ryan said, following her.
“Fine!” Allie finally snapped at him. “You want to know? I’m sick and tired of being Little Miss Perfect! I feel dull. It’s not like I want to do everything Cassie and Sue have done over the years, but I love the way they grab life by the balls and shake it! Jenny’s right there with them and I feel like the timid one. I’m usually the one telling them to settle. I’m the ‘voice of reason.’ Well, I’m tired of it! I want to be one of the fun ones, not the girl sitting with her hands folded, behaving just as she should!”
“Damn!” Ryan barked. “Maybe you are stupid! You take up smoking in secret to get yourself in trouble? That makes a hell of a lot of sense. And just how ‘good’ do you think you are? You talked Cassie, Sue and Annie into getting tattoos a few years ago. And …”
“I did not! I …”
“I’m not finished,” Ryan told her. “You’ve been right by Mom’s side nearly every time she’s gotten herself into trouble, since you met her. You got arrested with her for breaking into that hotel last year!”
“We weren’t arrested…” Allie tried to interrupt again.
“And all this smoking mess,” Ryan went on, getting louder and louder, “is it because I don’t get mad enough? Don’t yell enough? Don’t spank you as hard or as often as Dad spanks Mom? I can change that. I can find a ton of things to be picky about. I can spank you every time you blink wrong. Is that the kind of husband you want me to be? I can do it. But if I change, you’ll lose the husband you have now.”
