excerpt from Part Two:
Footsteps sounded on the stairs, at last, and my stomach flipped. Anticipation quickened my pulse, and I brushed strands of hair from my face and straightened on the bed, trying to make myself look presentable and contrite. Not that I didn’t already feel contrite, but I hoped Craig would go easy on me if he believed I was sorry.
I nearly gasped when his hulking form filled the doorway. His gaze zeroed in on me, dark and forbidding, and my heart skipped a beat when he finally walked into the room and shut the door. His strong presence overpowered me, and I felt completely at his mercy and regretful of my actions.
He paused halfway to the bed and stared at me for a long minute. Tension swelled in the room, and I felt faint, as if all the oxygen had suddenly been sucked out the window. I waited for his instructions, returning his gaze as my hands trembled in my lap.
“You mean the world to me, Sarah Jane.” The softness in his voice contrasted with the steel in his eyes. “I will not stand for your constant disregard for your own safety, just as I won’t stand for backtalk and childish behavior.”
“I know, and I’m sorry,” I said, the words spilling out as I fought to control the shaking of my hands. I loved the dynamic of our DD relationship, and I knew Craig wouldn’t mete out more than I could handle, but that didn’t diminish the fear I felt in the face of a punishment spanking. I much preferred the fun spankings and the naughty roleplaying sessions we enjoyed on Saturday nights.
As he continued to stare at me, as if trying to decide the specifics of my punishment, his hands moved up to his belt buckle.
“Please not the belt,” I begged, shaking my head. My bottom clenched as he pulled it off his pants and folded it in half. It dangled from his hand ominously, and I couldn’t look away.
“Yes,” he said. “The belt. We’re going to nip this behavior problem of yours in the bud before it becomes more of an issue, Sarah Jane. Now stand up.”
Part Two blurb:
Newlyweds Craig and Sarah Jane are trying to enjoy their first few months as husband and wife, but a series of strange break-ins in their new neighborhood puts a strain on their relationship. Craig expects his new wife to follow his safety rules to a T, but she begins to rebel when his overprotective ways get under her skin, and her rebellion earns her a soundly spanked bottom on more than one occasion.
Sarah Jane loves her husband and the dynamic of their domestic discipline relationship, but obeying is hard when Craig won’t even let her join the new neighborhood watch, even though many of the other neighborhood women volunteer. She’s certain the vandal on the loose isn’t a terrible danger, probably just a teenager causing some mischief. Craig disagrees and insists she remain vigilant while he’s at work and not do anything foolish to put herself in danger.
The neighborhood watch seems to keep the vandal away and all is quiet for a few weeks, until Sarah spots someone lurking behind the bushes in her backyard, and the man she witnesses stealthily crawling over fences is no stranger.
