It's another WIPItUp Wednesday. Time to give snippets from current works-in-progress. Thanks to WiPItUp and Melody Parks for doing this.
More from In Hyacinth's debut, Courted by Discipline. This continues from where last week's post left off.
And I'm announcing my HUGE announcment...tomorrow :D
Groaning, Kathy shook her head. “New girl in May during the last three weeks of school? I’m gonna stand out.”
“You always do,” Carilyn teased, hugging her lightly. “But from what Gerry says, you’ll feel more comfortable here, honey. No guys trying to get into your pants or friends trying to talk you into something you don’t want to do.”
“Can’t I just skip the rest of the year and start school new in the fall?” Kathy asked, hearing the pleading in her voice. Spending three weeks in the Hyacinth school system, which consisted of students from a twenty-mile radius, seemed silly to her. Plus, if she could put it off, she was sure by autumn she would be ready. Surely she would meet some friends over the summer.
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.
What you will never find in an In Hyacinth story: swearing or sex.
