Excerpt from my story A Husband for Betty:
“Betty, what would you say if I confessed I’m under extreme pressure to get married soon?”
“Sir? How can that be? You’re a man.” Men didn’t face the same pressure to marry as young women did. At least not that she’d ever heard.
“Well, there are two big reasons.” He returned to his chair and leaned over his desk. “My late wife’s parents are moving to California next month and they wish to take my five-year-old daughter with them. They don’t believe a man should raise a girl on his own.”
Sympathy panged in her heart. She had known Dr. Bauer was a widower but she hadn’t known he had a daughter. She thought of the sweet little girl from the park whose mama resided in heaven and her sadness for his predicament deepened. “I’m sorry to hear that, sir. Um, what’s the other reason?”
“I’m sure you’ve heard the rumors about me.”
Heat suffused her face and she gave a tiny nod.
“Because of those rumors I will lose my position at Lovett if I don’t take a wife soon. I must announce an engagement within the next two weeks or I will not be permitted to return next year.”
“You stand to lose a lot if you don’t take a wife. I’m sorry, Dr. Bauer.”
“Don’t be sorry.” He stood and approached her, then knelt at her side and reached for her hand. “Be my wife.”
“What?” If she hadn’t been sitting she would’ve slipped to the floor. Only the pressure of his hand squeezing hers kept her grounded in reality. She peered into his dark eyes and the vulnerability she glimpsed there startled her.
“I need a wife, Betty. I can’t lose my daughter, and I can’t lose my position at Lovett, not if I want to support my daughter. Your family is also pressuring you to marry soon. I promise I would be a kind and fair husband to you. You would want for nothing. I make a decent salary and own a nice house a short walk from Lovett. And as I said earlier, if you were my wife I would allow you to finish your degree.”
She blinked against the onset of tears and swallowed back her rising emotion. He was proposing a marriage of convenience. A shuddering breath left her and she turned in his direction. Don’t tell him your secret. Pretend you’re the good girl he believes you to be.
“If I were to say yes, when would we get married?”
Correcting the Coeds blurb:
1950s...when men were men, and women were spanked.
Featuring four brand new novellas:
A Husband for Betty by Sue Lyndon
When Betty is sent to her college advisor on a disciplinary matter, she doesn’t expect Dr. David Bauer to scold her, make her stand in the corner, and propose marriage all within the hour. Yet that’s exactly what happens, and out of desperation to escape her family’s influence, the young coed finds herself saying yes to the handsome widower.
David is a strict man who has no compunction about baring his wife’s bottom for a sound spanking, but he’s also patient and caring. Betty feels blessed to be his wife, but she worries he views their union as nothing more than a marriage of convenience. Will he ever truly love her, and how will he react to the shameful secret she’s been keeping about her past?
Back to Her Future by Celeste Jones
To keep peace with her roommate, Astrid agrees to try her time travel app, never imagining that this would be the one time Margo invented something that worked.
In an instant, Astrid is transported to 1956 and the dorm room of Richard "Dick" Johnson—Eagle Scout, straight arrow, spanker.
Dick Johnson has never met a girl like Astrid. Just because she says she's an exchange student from Canada doesn't mean she can flaunt the rules of proper ladylike behavior and he intends to help her understand American ways, even if the lessons are taught across his lap.
Astrid is charmed, and turned on, by Richard's old-fashioned ways, but she knows he'll never understand if she tells him the truth.
When the time comes for Astrid to return to 2016, will she be able to go Back To Her Future?
This book contains spanking, hip 50s slang, and some mocking of Canada. If such things offend you, please do not buy this book, eh?
Educating His Bride by Cara Bristol
Never much interested in her studies, Margaret Atwater attends college hoping to graduate with an Mrs. degree instead of a bachelor’s. When she catches the eye of English Professor Henry Thurston, she’s thrilled to marry him, drop out of school, and begin a new life as a married woman and faculty wife. However, Henry is a kinky man who has much to teach his eager young bride—in, and out, of the bedroom. As Mrs. Henry Thurston, Margaret’s education has just begun.
Stepbrother’s Rules by Renee Rose
LuAnn’s had a crush on her older, rebellious stepbrother since the year he lived with them—his last year of high school. Now, four weeks before graduating from Sarah Wharton Women’s College, she’s been kicked out for having boys in her dormitory, and he’s the one who shows up to collect her. With her parents away in Europe, he brings her to his place, because leaving a young woman unchaperoned isn’t done in 1957.
Brad makes it clear she is not to emulate the wild behavior of his youth, and he starts things out with a long, bare-bottomed punishment. Soon, though, he discovers his stepsister is all grown up, and having her under his authority makes her a temptation too delicious to resist. Before long, he’s strayed way past what is acceptable, turning her into his little girl and bringing her to the peaks of pleasure during her numerous punishments.
LuAnn brings out the dominant side of him, but with it comes the desire to take care of her and nurture the sweet innocence she’s been trying to cover up. He wants her for keeps, which means risking their parents’ disapproval and leaving his rebellious side behind forever.
Publisher’s Note: The book contains spanking, elements of ageplay and graphic sexual scenes. If such content offends you, please do not buy this book.
