Easter Break

On the off chance that somebody might stop by today, I'm posting a story that appeared on my other blog two Easters ago.  Just a little bit of fluff with an Easter theme, hope you enjoy.

Janet was so excited to be getting away for a few days.  She and two of her fellow teachers, Sydney and Brianna, had rented a cottage at Myrtle Beach for the long Easter weekend.  All she wanted to do was relax on the beach, work on her suntan and read a book that had nothing to do with her schoolwork.  In addition to her teaching position she was studying for her Master’s and would be completing the program in June.  Her schedule hadn’t allowed her much free time for the last two years and this was a much needed break.

When they arrived at the cottage there was a picnic basket filled with a bottle of wine and some cheese and crackers awaiting them.  The card attached said welcome and was signed by a C. Bartlett.  Neither one of them knew a C. Bartlett but after unloading the car, they opened the wine and munched on the crackers and cheese.  They were sitting on the screened in porch discussing what they planned on doing for the rest of the weekend when a car pulled in the driveway. A good looking man of about 40 stepped out and came to the door.  He knocked and yelled hello.

“Hi, I’m Chad Bartlett.   I own the cottage and just dropped by to see if you received the goodie basket and if there was anything I could do to make your stay more enjoyable.”

They all responded at once that so far they couldn’t think of anything.  Janet introduced Sydney and Brianna and then herself.  She thanked him for the basket.

“As you can see, we are enjoying the gift.  Would you like to join us for a glass of wine?”

He replied that although he would like to he had to get to an appointment on the other side of town.  He told them that later that evening The Fish Shanty was having a live band and a Ladies’ Nite they might enjoy.  Usually just the locals attended and it wouldn’t be as crowed as some of the other tourist traps.  Janet thanked him for the information and said they just might do that.  She extended her hand and when he touched her fingers, something sparked. She quickly pulled her hand back and held the door open for him.

When he left all three ladies looked at each other and just smiled.  Sydney remarked that he was one good looking guy.  Brianna and Janet agreed.  Of the three, Janet was the only one not attached in some way.  They changed into their swimsuits and headed down to the beach. Before leaving, Janet had googled the handsome Mr. Bartlett.  She found that he was a local realtor and involved in many community projects.  She also found that he was divorced and the father of two teenage children.

Over the last two years she hadn’t had much time for socializing.  She had the occasional date but mostly spent her free time working on her thesis.  She wouldn’t mind a quick little fling to add some excitement to her life.  They had decided to give The Fish Shanty a try and she hoped he would be there.  She had definitely felt something when she shook his hand.  She wondered if he felt the same thing.

They arrived at The Fish Shanty about 7:30pm.  It was already crowded and they had to wait for a table.  They waited in the bar until their name was called.  While they were sitting there just enjoying the company and the scenery, the waiter arrived with a tray of drinks.

“We didn’t order another round” Sydney said.

The waiter responded that Chad Bartlett had sent them over.  He nodded in his direction.  Janet looked over and Chad winked back in acknowledgement.  It wasn’t long before he sauntered over to their table and remarked he was glad they had taken his suggestion.  He said they wouldn’t regret it.  The seafood was the best on the beach and much more reasonable than some of the fancier restaurants. Janet remarked they hoped he was right on both counts because  teachers their salaries only went so far. 

“Oh, so you are all teachers.  I started out that way but soon found out that I couldn’t support my family on a teacher’s salary.” 

They all nodded in agreement.  Brianna asked about his family.  Janet was glad that she didn’t have to broach that subject.  He explained that he had been divorced for several years and that he had two children, a girl 15 and a boy 17.  He then inquired about them. Sydney replied she was married but her husband was in the military and on a short term assignment in Europe.  Brianna said was engaged but her fiancé was involved in an engineering project and was in DC for the next two weeks.  He seemed to brighten when Janet didn’t mention any attachments.

Just then, the waiter called their number and said their table was ready.  Janet asked him to join them and he readily agreed.  He was a good conversationalist and entertained them with tales  of the local lore.  When the band started he asked Janet to dance.  She readily accepted and found he was a great dancer.  He was courteous enough to also ask Sydney and Brianna to dance also.  Janet noticed though that he saved the slow numbers for her.  By the end of the evening, he asked Janet if she would be comfortable enough to join him for a walk on the beach and if he could take her home.  She said that would be fine and she would tell her friends she would see them later. 

They left and strolled on the beach.  They continued telling each other about themselves when Janet asked about the cause of his divorce and if it was hard on his children.  He explained that he wasn’t always the best husband as far as his wife was concerned.  He had certain expectations and his wife didn’t want to uphold those expectations any longer.  He said his children had adapted better than he expected and he thought it was because he was still a strong presence in their lives.

Janet didn’t delve into the matter any further.  She felt it was a private matter and if he wanted to explain further he would do so.  It didn’t matter to her.  She wanted a weekend romance – nothing more.

They continued to walk and talk until Janet said she wanted to call it a night.  She said they’d had a long drive and she was exhausted.  He asked if he could see her again tomorrow and she said she would have to check with Sydney and Brianna to see if they had made any plans.  She knew they would encourage her to see Chad but she didn’t want to seem too anxious.  She told him she would call him in the morning.  He dropped her off at the cottage and gave her a chaste good night kiss.

The kiss left her wanting more. 

About 10:00 the next morning she called Chad and got his voicemail.  She told him she was available if he still wanted to get together.  He called back about an hour later and explained he had to take his daughter to practice and then go hide eggs at the community center for Sunday’s Easter Egg Hunt. He told her he would be available after that unless she wanted to go with him.  She thought that might be fun.  He told her he would pick her up about 11:30 and to bring a bathing suit.

As they drove to the marina he asked if she liked sailing.  She said she hadn’t done much but she did enjoy being out on the water.  He told her he had a picnic lunch delivered to his boat and thought they would sail to one of the smaller coves and enjoy an afternoon of sailing and sun.

The cove was secluded and empty when they moored.  They went ashore in the inflatable dingy, had lunch and decided to nap in the sun.  She awoke when she felt someone watching her.  Chad was laying there, propped up by this elbow and just staring.
 
“You are quite pretty, Janet.  And to think you have a brain too.”

“Thank you, she said, but it must be good genes, have to thank my parents.”

“Unassuming too.  I could be very tempted to succumb to your charms”.
Janet blushed and responded she could say the same things about him.  He reached over a started to kiss her neck, her ears and soon they were in each others arms and kissing passionately. 

“I think we better stop before this goes any further,” he said.

She asked why.  He responded he was not prepared to go to the next step.  He didn’t have any protection.  She told him she had been a girl scout and she was prepared.  She reached into her purse and pulled out a package of condoms.  He laughed and said that on top of everything else, she was also resourceful.

Soon they were naked.  He pushed her down and began kissing while his fingers strolled deliciously down her torso.  When she didn’t think she could take any more, he found her wetness and his talented fingers found their mark.  Just as she had almost reached nirvana, he stopped, rolled her over, and began spanking her well rounded butt.  She was startled and was just about to say something when his fingers again found her sweet spot.  Once again she was arching her body to achieve climax when he stopped and once again began spanking her.  This time he continued to spank her while his other hand fingered her to completion.  She had never had such a powerful orgasm.   She was still trying to catch her breath when we rolled her over and entered her with a powerful thrust.  It wasn’t long before she was within reach of another orgasm when he reached his climax that brought her over the top.  He rolled off her and lay back on the blanket.  She lay there spent.  She had just experienced the best sex of her life.

“WOW” was all she managed to say.  He just grinned and matter of factly asked if she was okay.

“More than okay” she answered.  “I would have never thought that spanking could be so erotic.”

" It is," he replied.  "There are many kinds of spankings.  If you like we could experiment to see which ones you liked best.  She giggled and said that maybe he could hide a couple of suggestions in her Easter Basket."

He laughed and said he would check with the Easter Bunny to see what could be done.


Happy Easter Everyone.

SATURDAY SPANKINGS



                                                                     
Another Saturday already, OMG, the days go entirely too fast.  Unfortunately it's not only the days but the weeks, months and years.  That's how I got old, the grinch didn't steal the years after all.

Peter Cottontail comes visiting tomorrow and for all of you looking forward to his arrival, hope he brings you all the chocolate and/or goodies you desire.  Me, as long as the markets don't run out of Dove Dark Chocolate, I will be a happy lady with or without Peter.

This week I'm giving another peek into Taming Maria.   The long awaited marriage between Maria Elena Bartolá and Juan ntonio Cabrillo eventually takes place. The business interests of the Bartolá's include cattle, horses, and farming, with the Cabrillo family focusing on the raising and breeding of cattle. The story is set in California during the 1940's, amidst a backdrop of ranches and vineyards and two childhood sweethearts destined to become lovers. But the handsome Juan is fully aware that his bride-to-be is headstrong and tempestuous. It seems the only sure way to tame her is to give her a well-deserved spanking! The couple face hardship, adventure, personal tragedy and long periods of separation ... but there are some things in life that are worth waiting for.


                                                                           
Juan sucked in his breath as her father turned over her hand to him. The rest of his life was about to begin. He looked forward to the journey he knew would be filled with love and laughter. He knew because Maria Elena Bartolá Cabrillo had already provided him with more love, laughter and excitement than most men had in a lifetime.

The journey down the aisle was not always smooth as evidenced below.

Looking him square in the eye, she told him, "I would not marry you if you were the last man on earth. Get out of my sight."

"I will let you cool down Maria, but I will be back and make no mistake, you WILL marry me."

"Don't be holding your breath!"

He gathered his things and walked out the front door. Maria was fuming and her bottom was throbbing. Damn him, how dare he spank me.

Saturday Spankings





Another Saturday, another Saturday Spankings.  Today I'm featuring a snippet from my first published book.  Lonesome Oak Ranch is a collection of three stories, the second  is titled A Vacation to Remember. It is the story of Susan and Jeremy Blake and their journey through a ghost town that spurs memories that bring their past into their present.


No, I don't want to do it. Now leave it alone."

  Susan couldn't do that. She just kept pushing.

  "If you want to do it you go right ahead but leave me out of it."

  "But ..." she never finished her sentence. Jeremy grabbed her and took her over his knee.

 "I have had enough Susan. I told you to leave it alone and you won't. Since you won't listen to my words, maybe this will to keep you quiet for a while."

  His hand came down in hard whacks in very quick succession. Susan didn't even have time to process the pain when the next spank fell.

  "You are being very unreasonable!" she managed to get out. "Stop it now."

  "You are the one that is being unreasonable. I will stop when I think you have learned your lesson. I surely am not going to stop while you are screaming at me like some banshee," he told her.


This may be more than eight sentences but it is eight lines, does that count?  If not, oh well, spank me.  This book and my other books can be purchased by clicking on any of the titles below. They can also be purchased through Amazon.com

Are You Ready for Saturday Spankings?






Another week gone and I hope for all our weather weary friends that winter went too.  It's spring, at least that's what the calendar says. Mother Nature are you listening?

This next week is an exciting one for me.  For those of you who may not visit my other blog you may not know that I'm going to meet PK Corey this week. Can't wait. We may even be able to cook up some new adventures for Cassie & friends.  Who knows?

This week's snippet is from my latest release, Taming Maria.  Maria is the headstrong daughter of a large California rancher.  Juan is the man who hopes to tame her.  In today's snippet, Maria who manages her father's vineyard wants to fire one of the vineyard workers because he is a slacker and pushes the majority of his work on to his wife and son, also work in the vineyard. She takes the situation to Juan who, as the Ranch Manager, has the final say.


"Maria, my sweetness, it is not any of your business. If his wife and son are willing to do his work as well as their own, it doesn't matter who does it, it just matters that it gets done.".....

"If you aren't going to fire him, I will take matters into my one hands."

"I'm warning you my dear, don't cause any trouble, in his family or ours."

"What is that supposed to mean?"

"It means mind your own business or else."

"Or else what?"

"I think you know the answer to that my sweet, but if you need a reminder I will be happy to oblige."


 As soon as they were out of sight, he gave her backside a resounding smack.

Saturday Spanking_March 15th Version





I haven't been around for the last couple of weeks.  I had a good reason though, I was having fun, that counts doesn't it.  

This week's snippet is from Love Is Where You Find It is the story of Randy Colburne and Misty Callahan.  He is a retiring rodeo cowboy who has loved and lost. Misty Callahan has overcome many of life's hard knocks and has learned to harden her heart so she doesn't get hurt again.  When they come together they both learn that love doesn't have to hurt.

In this scene, Randy has given Misty a $200 gift card to purchase some needed items. Misty not used to being handed things with no strings attached feels uneasy about accepting this gift. Randy is trying to convince her otherwise.

  "Misty, you are being pig headed. Do you know what I do to pig headed girls?" When she shook her head, he told her. "I take them over my knee and spank their bottoms until they see things my way. As I told you earlier I am tired of hearing that line." He grinned.

  "Well you wouldn't spank me."

  "You think not? We will have to see about that," he replied and he found a cart and pushed it into an aisle.
