Oh, look! It's Saturday Spankings again! Where did the time go?
In this little snippet from Courted by Discipline, Kathy and Cami are talking on the phone. Cami is the first speaker. I love this excerpt as it shows the difference in how Kathy sees things as to how girls in Hyacinth see them.

“So, do you have some time to chat?”
“Definitely,” she said lying down on her bed with her feet tapping on the pillows and her head on her hands on the foot of the bed. “So, I just found out about this whole courting thing…”
“What about it?” The confusion in Cami’s tone made Kathy shake her head.
“Do you realize that in other places couples just date all sorts of people without the intent of getting married?”
“That’s kind of pointless. What’s the use?”

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 In Hyacinth:
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.
Now, hop away for Saturday Spankings :)
