She blinked furiously and willed the heat in her face to die back and the sting in her eyes to go away. The sting in her southern cheeks was a little slower in complying, but maybe that was only because sitting in this chair of shame made the contrition of needing to be spanked feel all that much worse.

Never had five minutes taken so long to pass her by. She heard his footsteps come up the hall, but it passed right by her door and carried him steadily upstairs instead. Silence filled the house, punctuated by her own soft breaths and the whisper-soft ticks of an unseen clock somewhere behind her.

Heavy footsteps and the sound of father and son conversing announced Marcus’s steady descent back downstairs.

“All of them, please. I want the kitchen spic and span,” was all she heard him say, and that only happened because he’d opened his office door at the same time he’d said it.

The blurb:

The ad read: “Full-time housekeeper/nanny position. Live-in preferred. References and experience required. Salary negotiable. Apply in person.”

Cadence Westmore knew she wasn’t qualified for the job, but for a paycheck and an apartment, she was determined to apply. As an ex-dancer with two bad legs and no experience with children, she expected to be turned down. What she didn’t expect was the instant attraction she felt when Corbin Bend’s resident doctor took her in his capable hands.

A widower with three boys to raise, Dr. Marcus Devon knew he needed help. But he also knew Cadence Westmore was the last person he should hire. Still he gave her the job, opening his home and his life to a woman as stubborn as she was lovely, and as determined not to need him as he was to make her his. She was her own worst enemy, pushing herself to exceed her wounded body’s physical limitations until the doctor finally stepped in to apply some good old-fashioned bare-bottom medicine. The more she rebelled, the more he took her across his knee until at last Cadence realized if she wasn’t careful, she just might lose everything all over again.

  1. Another great snippet to whet our appetites. I love that you called it the ‘chair of shame’. Thanks for starting our day out right. I already have Exile To Unity. Have a terrific day.

  2. Spic and span you say? You know I wrote spank there and had to go back and fix it. I do love the chair of shame and hope she gets to sit on it often… I have already read Exile to Unity!

  3. Yay! I won! 🙂 Thanks so much, Maren. I’m glad you didn’t hold it against me that I called you evil (yet, I keep coming back for more).
    I love that we all loved the term ‘chair of shame’ us spankos must be on the same wavelength!
    I have read Exile to Unity.

  4. Four days to go. Time is going so slowly probably how Cadence feels on the chair of shame.
    I have read Exile to Unity.
