Saturday Spankings





I think this has been the coldest week ever in most parts of this country, I think they are calling is the Polar Vortex.  Lucky for me, here in Arizona our weather has been pretty normal.

Today we are back to regular rules for Saturday Spankings, meaning our snippets are limited to eight sentences or we get in trouble with the headmistress. Todays, eight sentences are taken from my first book, Lonesome Oak Ranch.  This book contains three stories that take place in the west and today's feature is titled Bear Creek Ranch. It's a story of a gal running away from an engagement and winds up working for Caleb Fletcher. Caleb soon finds Jane is a bossy, opinionated lady that has everybody dancing to her tune. When his housekeeper threatens to quit, he thinks he has found a way to solve the problem.  The only problem is he wants her to become more than just an employee which creates even more problems.

     
"I take it you are still in a snit about your new assignment. I am sorry if it doesn't meet with your approval, but you overstepped your bounds and didnot follow the rules I set down regarding you and Mrs. Griggs. You created your own dilemma and I am not going to walk around on egg shells until you decide it is over. We are not employer and employee at the moment so either you talk to me or my hand will be talking to your butt. Your choice."

  She gave him a phony smile and he knew what he had to do. He hated it but he had been threatening to do it for so long she probably figured he would never follow up. Without a word he walked over to the willow tree and cut off a branch. 

If you want to know what happens next, just click  here or Amazon and you can be reading in no time.

Don't go away, check out some other great snippets below.

  7. My butt cheeks actually clenched when he cut the willow branch. I have -not so fond- memories of willow branches.
    Bear Creek Ranch sounds like a tantalizing read. I can't help but adore when a woman over steps her bounds and is taught a well deserved lesson.
    I wonder why she ran away from her wedding? Will the willow switch send her screaming back into the arms of the one she ran away from?
    I'll be reading this one to find out.

  15. He's obviously had enough of her behavior. Based upon your set-up, I can see why. A little owie ought to do the trick. (Or maybe a few more.)

  16. Can I just say yummy? You have absolutely left it at the right place Sunny!

  17. Yikes! I have a feeling her smile is about to disappear quickly as she does a quick back step, but too little, too late. However, perhaps she won't be so hasty to doubt him next time. Love the snippet, Leigh.

  18. Grr tease. Don't think she will be smiling too much longer.

  19. I bet she squealed like a piggie when he applied that willow switch to her nether regions - I know I would! LOL Great snippet Leigh.
