Summertime in Corbin’s Bend

For Ben Final LGSaturday Spankings-467x200After a chillier than usual winter, the denizens of Corbin’s Bend are delighted to celebrate the arrival of summer. Flowers blooming, big blue sky stretching to the mountains…and maybe a few outdoor “activities” in backyards. A barbecue spatula isn’t just for hamburgers anymore! But along with the arrival of summer, we’re getting very close to my July 9 release date for For Ben! So excited!

Here’s a few lines, enjoy!

Fresh tears slipped down the tracks on her cheeks and dripped off her chin. She wouldn’t meet his gaze. What had he done? His arousal faded, replaced by concern.
“Say something to me.”
She blinked. “You mean it?”
He searched his mind for what she referred to. “I mean everything I say.” Way to give a strong front. “But what…?”
“You really want to keep me?” She rested her head against his shirt, wetting the fabric with the sweet liquid of her emotions. “Even after the way I’ve behaved?”
His heart swelled and he stroked her hair, so soft under his palm. “You have been under some pressure. Your sister’s death and having to take on the care of a small boy. I had just about given up on having a child of our own, you know. I was going to talk to you about it on our vacation.”
Teri laughed, a small bitter sound. “The one I was trying to cancel.”
