Spotlight: The Errant Bride

   Sara Harris is newly married and thinks life is great. Well, if not great then at least good enough. All of that changes when her husband, Ethan, tells her that he does not feel the same. 

The biggest surprise for Sara is what he intends to do about it.   

His solution certainly was never covered in premarital counseling! Sara struggles with her feelings after Ethan starts punishing her. She can't believe she is being spanked like a child, and what's more she's not sure she is willing to put up with it. But if not, where does that leave her except broken hearted? 

(Copy rite Dinah McCleod and Blushing Books) Excerpt:

“Now,” he cleared his throat, his voice still authoritative. I’m shocked to realize that he’s stopped, and that I have been sobbing over his lap for a good minute while he’s waited for me to calm down. I tried to sit up, but he kept me pinned with his hand firmly on my back. “I want you to apologize to me, and thank me for spanking you.” 

My eyes widened in surprise. He’d never asked me do that before. “Um…I’m sorry, Daddy.” 

“For what?” 

I furrowed my brow. He knew for what! Why did he have to embarrass me further by making me say it out loud?
“Sara?” He prompted. It didn’t escape my notice that he did not sound patient.
“I’m sorry for upsetting you.” I blurted out the first thing that came to mind, hoping it would be enough to save my bottom further pain. 


I sighed loudly. “And…I don’t know.” 

Those words were apparently the wrong ones. I felt the shift of his weight as he reached over to my nightstand. Before I could groan or offer any sort of protest, the back of my wooden hairbrush was flattening the right cheek, and then quickly flattening the left. Four more of these swift, stingy swats were delivered before he was satisfied. 

“Try again.” 

“I’m sorry…I’m sorry…I…” 


His voice was firm and filled with warning, and I immediately burst into tears. “I’m sorry, Daddy. I’ve been bratty and stubborn and I haven’t helped Mom around the house and…and you’re paying for my w-wedding. It’s going to be a-am-azing, and it’s all thanks to y-you!” I laid my head down and continued to sob for a few minutes. I felt him gently rubbing my back, and my sobs turned to sniffles. “I’m sorry. I’ve just been making your life m-miserable!” 

“Now, honey. No one is saying that. But yes, I have been working hard, pulling night shifts and working weekends to make sure you have everything you want for this wedding. You have been moody with everyone in this family, and I want you to remember that your actions impact other people. They also have consequences.”
