Saturday Spankings has come around again and I’m happy to be using a snippet from On the River, the first book in my new series. In this new series I bring all my characters together. I love these characters and I love writing them, but don’t worry if you don’t know any of them. The book is a stand-alone and I promise you’ll know everyone soon. If you enjoy these folks, just know that there are other books about them.
In today’s snippet I give you a brief introduction to Cassie and Tom. A couple married for decades and still as much in love as the day they married. Cassie is thinking back on their lives together as Tom naps beside her.
Despite the wildness she displayed, Tom had fallen in love so deeply that he was determined to do anything he could to save her. Cassie smiled and snuggled deeper into his arms, thinking about one of the tools he'd used that might not have been understood by most people. Tom was an old-fashioned man. He firmly believed that as the man, he should be head of the household, protecting the woman he loved. He had expectations for Cassie's behavior, mostly having to do with her safety. She followed these expectations as well as she could—most of the time. In truth, Cassie did as she pleased ninety-nine percent of the time. But when she did something Tom felt was dangerous or when she out-and-out defied him and conversation wasn't working, his tried-and-true solution was a trip over his knee for a sound spanking that would get her attention. When he was seriously upset by her actions, the unforgiving ivory hairbrush was applied vigorously. At those times, Cassie would usually give a swift apology and promise to straighten up immediately. And I do try, Cassie thought to herself. But sometimes it's not my fault and things just happen, she assured herself.
Cassie realized that many people, especially these days, might see this as abuse. Cassie knew better. I guess I didn't have much of a choice at the beginning, Cassie mused, thinking of their lives well over forty years ago. But, it didn't matter now. She couldn't be happier, and she was in favor of the way they lived their lives—except during the moments Tom was actually spanking. At those moments, she was not so much in favor. But now the vast majority of her spankings were purely for fun, and she loved those.
Thirty minutes later, Cassie felt Tom stir and she rolled over to face him. She gave him a lingering kiss and he pulled her tightly to him. As the kiss ended, Tom whispered, "I don't know what I did to deserve that, but whatever it was, I hope I do it again."
"That was just for being you. Do you have any idea how much I love you?"
"I do," he whispered. "And I thank God for it."
Cassie and Tom Duff live at The Landing, a beautiful neighborhood by the river in their little town in North Carolina. They’re surrounded by their beloved family and friends. Most of the couples here live a domestic discipline lifestyle where the husbands are the head of household. It can’t be said that these ladies always follow their husbands’ lead and the men often have their hands full trying to keep up with their fun-loving and headstrong wives.
This first book in a new series by PK Corey follows the funny, quirky and romantic escapades of Cassie and her friends Sue and Annie as well as the younger generation who are all involved in solving a problem from Cassie’s past.
Come and join the ride! You’ll definitely feel like you’re a part of the family.
