Hey, Saturday Spankings Bloghop!
I thought I'd give you a little snippet from Courted by Discipline, part of the In Hyacinth series. Last week, I gave you a little snippet under a different pseudonym. This week, it now sits in its permanent home of Bree Cariad.
Eighteen year old Kathy grew up in a strong discipline household. Her father is easy going except for when she or her mother breaks one of his firm rules. A couple guests are over for dinner and Kathy has just interrupted them.
Confusion settled, and Kathy glanced between the couple who looked startled at her interruption and her parents. Her mother looked as confused as she felt, but her father had a calm expression on his face that did not fool her. She was in trouble. It was in the firm set of his jaw and the darkening of his eyes. Ah, drat. There would be no way to talk herself out of this one. Interrupting someone while they talked was something he hated. Hoping he would settle with either making her write a million lines or stand in the corner for an hour, she tried to keep her mind off the most likely punishment, a spanking.
"Kathy," Gerald said quietly. "Please go wait for me in my study."

Courted By Discipline
When Kathy Bretherton moved to Hyacinth at the age of eighteen, she looked forward to living amongst people who believed in traditional values like her family did. She did not expect to become part of the Hyacinth Courting Pool and the object of interest of every man looking for a wife.
Alexander Covington was the most eligible bachelor in town and he wanted her. For Kathy, who grew up in a household where the man was the head of the home and her and her mother's jobs were to take care of it, learning to accept him as her leader was relatively easy. Receiving his discipline was the life-changing part.
About the series:
Hyacinth, Washington is all about traditional values. In Hyacinth; its residents live their lives by discipline; there is a strong male head of house; and words like trust, honor, and kindness aren't just buzzwords. Each story in the series is of a young woman (18-20) and her struggle to figure out who she is in this little town while at the same time going through Hyacinth's old-fashioned courting system. On their way to meet, get to know, and finally marry their princes, these heroines grow in ways they and their town never expected.
While spanking does exist in every story (more in some than others), the stories are more about the growth of the heroine and loving discipline in all its far-reaching ways, than about spanking.
What you won't find in an In Hyacinth novella or novel: Swearing and erotica.
