Happy Saturday! Only a few days to go now till my new book comes out. It’s my first in almost two years, so I’m pretty excited about it.
Groomed is set on the cusp of the 21st century, and Charlotte and Connor have just got the internet at home. Charlotte is captivated by the Spanking Sheilas forum and spends hours secretly reading the posts. The poster she particularly envies is Panda, whose husband Hayden is everything Charlotte would like Connor to be.
Today I’m sharing an extract from one of Panda’s forum posts. Hayden is helping Panda recover from an eating disorder, and has noticed she threw away a plate of food at her office Christmas party. He disciplines her when they return home.
He smacked me over and again with the ruler, concentrating on my sit spots. It wasn’t long before I started crying, but he must have given me another twenty hard whacks before he was through.
When he’d finished, he gently lifted me up and cuddled me on his lap. “You behaved very badly at the party tonight, sweetheart,” he said, gently soothing the sore broad stripes on my bottom as he scolded me. “You didn’t eat, you threw your food in the bin, and you tried to deceive me instead of telling me you needed help.”
“I know,” I said between gulps. “I’m so sorry.”
“The thing is,” he continued, “I now feel like I can’t trust you at these functions. So I’m going to take some pre-emptive action before every single function we attend, including Christmas dinner. Before we go out I’m going to spank you. But I will only spank one cheek, and as long as you behave yourself and eat sensibly, that’ll be the end of it. But if you misbehave, we’ll come home and I’ll spank the other cheek. But I hope the one very sore buttock will be a reminder to you to behave yourself all evening.”
The tears dripped from my face as I processed the idea of being spanked almost every day between now and Boxing Night. “We have two functions on Christmas Day,” I whispered.
“And you’ll get two pre-emptive spankings,” he said firmly.
I cried myself to sleep that night, while Hayden cuddled me. I wished I’d never been so stupid at the party. I was already very sore and sorry and the thought of being spanked again in less than twenty-four hours’ time was…well, let’s say I wasn’t looking forward to it a lot.
Groomed will be published by Blushing Books on 16 March.

Enjoy your weekend. It’s a public holiday weekend here in Australia, so we get an extra sleep-in on Monday. 🙂
