A courting she will go

Hello :) It's been awhile since I've been on the Saturday Spanking bloghop, but I'm baaaaack! :)

I've got a little snippet from Courted by Discipline, 1st in the In Hyacinth series, which will be out October 20th from the new LazyDay Publishing. I'm excited. And when I get my cover, I'll be dancing. :)

In this snippet, Kathy has been informed there are some men in Hyacinth who wish to court her. She's not very sure about this whole courting thing. Her father is a loving, if strict, disciplinarian and while used to it, she tends to forget sometimes.

For some reason, Kathy had assumed all the gentleman callers, as her mother referred to them, would come on the same night. As it turned out, she would get one each night. “Like the ghosts from A Christmas Carol,” she mumbled when Gerald informed her Friday morning before he went to work. Unfortunately her words combined with her glower and the fact she interrupted him merited her ten swats with his belt. Her constant reminder all day every time she tried to sit down made it even more difficult to be excited for the evening’s festivities. 

Added to it, her mother had insisted they made rather time-intensive meals for each night. “Something to showcase your cooking talents,” she explained, ignoring Kathy’s grimace.

It was difficult to do something she both wanted to do and loathed to do at the same time.

Courted by Discipline
In Hyacinth #1
Release Date: October 20, 2014

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.

What you will never find in an In Hyacinth story: swearing or sex.

And now on with the hop...
