#Satspanks, The Chicagoan Switch, Something Whippy

I'm going to give this a try- again.... You guys know how much I love you- love my Saturday Spankings, but dangit! Life has been nutso lately... Anyway, here's another sampling from the second switch, The Chicagoan Switch.


~~~~~

“Sweet talking won’t change my mind, nor distract me. Open your legs.” He pressed her legs open with his foot even as he said it.

Caroline clenched her bottom waiting for the sting of the switch. She didn’t think anything could hurt worse and she knew it was coming soon when he picked one of them up. The doctor surely didn’t know that or he wouldn’t have said as much… but Royce was right, it was not jarring, it only stung the skin of her bottom and wouldn’t hurt the baby.

“Oh, for the love of—

Caroline couldn't follow through with the mail order marriage she had agreed to, so she switched places with the woman next to her on the train. Anxious to get home, she had more reason to hurry when she received a wire relaying a family emergency.
Traveling with the Union Pacific across the mid- west was a long, hot trip and Caroline's temper flared at the man who took responsibility for the railroad. Her temper wasn't the only thing flaring - her bottom also felt the heat when Royce Ashby had had enough of her bad humor. A man's patience could only take him so far and it was quite obvious to him that Caroline was in need of a keeper. He knew he was up for the task.

Liz will do anything to get away from her evil guardian, and she was prepared to disguise herself as a boy and look for work as a ranch hand. When Caroline, a stranger on the train next to her, sees through her "boy" disguise, and begs her to take her place as a mail-order bride, Liz doesn't hesitate long before saying yes. It's got to be easier than working on a ranch, and as a married woman with a new name, she'll be out of her guardian's clutches forever.

Wade Malone has been looking forward to his new bride for months, but when "Caroline" finally arrives, things don't exactly add up. For one, "Caroline" was supposed to be twenty-five years old; the woman who came off the train doesn't look a day above sixteen. He has a strong aversion to liars, particularly in a wife. But he's also a man who keeps his promises and whoever the woman is at his side, he's made a commitment.

That doesn't mean he's not going to handle his new bride very firmly indeed. Then, against all odds, Liz starts to fall for the no-nonsense rancher and his family. How will she ever keep him from finding out the complete truth about the switch?

Author Spotlight, Dinah Mcleod, How I Spank My Wife



Hey, Patty, thanks for having me today! I thought I’d share an excerpt from my newest release, “How I Spank My Wife” with your readers today. I hope you enjoy it!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“Callie Thomas?”
http://www.amazon.com/How-I-Spank-My-Wife-ebook/dp/B00J95DAMC/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1396410435&sr=8-4&keywords=dinah+mcleod


My head jerked up, and I pushed myself to my feet. “Here. I’m here.”

“All right, you’re up,” one of the ladies from casting told me. The other two at the table had their heads bent over their notes and didn’t even bother to look up. “We cast the role of Richard yesterday, so he’s going to read with you, OK?”

“Oh.” I hadn’t prepared to perform with anyone, but I knew I’d have to make it work. “All right.”

“It’ll give us a better idea of your chemistry together,” she explained.

“Right. Of course.” I walked toward the stage, reminding myself to breathe. I walked up the stairs, my legs shaking. I placed myself directly in the center of the stage, trying to keep myself calm. I could see a man on stage, out of the corner of my eye, but his back was turned to me.

“Whenever you’re ready,” she prompted. I noticed that the other two directors still hadn’t looked up and it made my breath come in quick, short bursts. I tried to focus on what I had to do, to clear my mind of everything but the script.

“I’m sorry,” I began, faltering. Suddenly, I saw my reading partner turn toward me, and I caught my breath. It was Mr. Condescending, in the flesh. He was the male lead for this movie? I was so sure last night that he wasn’t anyone who mattered. Then again, if he was just an actor, like me, that was close enough to being nothing.

“You seem to find yourself saying that a lot lately,” he quipped, and I started to narrow my eyes at him and fire back a retort when I realized he was just reading his lines.

“Yeah, but that’s just because…” I took a deep breath and winced when I realized how shaky my voice was coming out. Being face to face with him after what had happened last night was making me really on edge.

“Excuses, excuses,” he shot back. “I’m fed up with it, Lori! Something has got to change around here and I think it might be your attitude.”

“Excuse me?”

“Your attitude, babe. You’re being lazy and thoughtless and that has to stop, do you understand?”

“I’ve got a lot going on right now, Richard,” I said, a tad bit whiny. “You don’t understand the kind of stress I’m under—

He arched an eyebrow. “Stress?”

“Richard!” I exclaimed, pouting. “It’s true.”

“Regardless of anything you have going on outside this house—” He took a menacing step toward me and I backed away. “I expect you to treat me with respect. Understand?”

“OK, OK,” I mumbled. “I understand.”

“What was that?”

“I understand!”

“Did I say that I couldn’t hear you, Lori? I was waiting for a more respectful answer.”

I was praying that one of the directors—all three had their eyes glued to the stage now—would call cut, that they would have seen enough. Unfortunately for me, they didn’t, and following through with the script Mr. Condescending scooped me up effortlessly and sat on the chair provided for this very purpose.

Being over his knees was humiliating and I couldn’t help but squirm on his lap. Part of me had wondered if he’d recognized me—sometimes people didn’t recognize me out of uniform—but from the first swat he landed on my jeans, I knew that he had. I knew that far from following the script, he was using this as an opportunity to show me how angry I’d made him.

#SatSpanks The Chicagoan Switch


It's that time again... I'm so far behind I may not get caught up until 2020. 

But I keep trying! That has to say something...

The rest of you are all prolific and proficient with your blog tours and book launches and even Sheri Saville is so awesome she spends her free time making pie charts and all manner of social crap and I can hardly remember to wipe my a--. 

Oh, nevermind you guys don't want to here how worthless I've been lately... You want a fun snippet...


They had come to an impasse. Caroline had backed up against the bed, she couldn’t go anywhere else and he was still coming toward her. He was too near for her to hop up and over it so she was stuck. He didn’t stop in front of her when he came to her either. He kept right on coming until she was leaning backwards and finally bent enough to drop onto the bed and then he leaned over her.

Her heart thundered in her chest. “I trusted you, honest. I just didn’t think and I didn’t have time, but I wanted to help them, with all my heart.” That newfangled electricity they were talking about coursed through her veins.

“I am going home, Mr. Ashby, there is nothing you can do to stop me.” She tipped her head around and pulled her elbow back, testing his grip. “I’ve had it with your uselessness and the Union Pacific’s incompetence.”

“Caroline, I do not have time for this. You are making this take longer than it has to. Get back on the train now or—

“Or what?” She glared at him, daring him. That was what she was doing, wasn’t it?

“Or you will end up with a whole lot more than you are bargaining for, angel.”

Here is an excerpt from The Chicagoan Switch.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Caroline gulped hard as her eyes blurred. Could she have misunderstood? He didn’t really want their attention? How many times had she seen the very same thing? Those silly little twits. No, she was the twit— “I don’t know what to say; I’m sorry… I saw them and thought you wanted them. That you liked the attention, liked the younger, prettier girls…”

“Liked being molested, surrounded, pawed, groped, and treated like a valuable stud service?” His words, each one gripped a little harder, she was already sorry, but still he went on, “You think them pretty? It’s fine if you do, but I don’t. I think you are beautiful. I love your cinnamon-colored eyes, and these little curls at your nape.” He fingered the strands at her neck and pressed his forehead to hers. “I’m in love with you, but you are not to doubt it when I’m switching your bottom for leaving the ball and walking the grounds alone when I asked you to be careful and stay away from dangerous places and absolutely not to go anywhere unescorted.”

She drew back. “Dangerous—this is hardly dangerous.” Her bottom was prickling and she was altogether too sure it had to deal with that word switching. She had a good idea that it had nothing to do with the frog switch in the museum. “You are crazy if you think I will allow you to—to…” She could hardly say the word out loud and yet she didn’t need to, Royce completed her thoughts for her.

“Oh, ho and will you then stop me? Did I not warn you that the mishaps with the train were actually linked and against Union Pacific and myself and that you should be careful? Did I not tell you again today to be very careful because I seemed to have an enemy, and they could single you out?” He was leading her farther away from the pavilion as he spoke and even if she should fight him her good sense had left her somewhere, sometime before. At a small opening in the woods, there sat a bench and Royce thrust her on it with a stern command to “sit”.

“Royce, you are being unreasonable,” she cried, coming to her feet at once. He didn’t turn back to her at all as he barked a hasty command for her to be seated and continued on to the low saplings. He made it look easy to pluck a whippy branch from the young tree and shuck it of its branches without even a knife to make the task easier. She tried again, “I’m perfectly safe here.”

Guest Posts, #CT&M Coffee, Tea and Me~ and #AuthorSpotlight openings


So, I'm ready for a new line up of guests. You may have seen my previous CT&M posts and thought that you would like to come- and you can! Anyone want to come over and play?

If you would like to have a spot on my blog, let me know via email at

askpookyanything at gmail dot com.

Let me know if you would like to have a chat, and I will send interview questions your way.



I also have my Author Spotlight days. These are pretty self-explanatory really. Send me your stuff, anytime!

Anytime you have a new book, you don't have to ask, I'll just plug it into the next Tuesday I have available.

I have about 600-700 readers daily, I don't get many comments (probably because I don't have a lot of time to respond). So there is no reciprocal action needed. You can come back on the day your ad goes up and comment if you like-- I will send you a confirmation when I receive your ad, with the date I've slotted it. I also try to tweet it and FB it. (However, I make my apologies now if life gets in the way and I forget to do so.)

I also have a sister blog and am considering running the ads on it on the Thursday after.  I'd love to hear your feedback. :)

I hope to hear from you soon!

~Patty~

P.S. If you look at my Side Bar you can see a link list with the schedule of guests coming to visit! I'm so excited. Make sure you come back and say hi to each of them and make them feel welcome.

Also, you don't have to be an author to be my guest- just sayin.
