Kathryn R. Blake Past Interference: A Corbin's Bend Valentine Novella
Read Sample Chapter


When Jerry Douglas asks Elly Benson to marry him, he wants their ceremony to be as close to Valentine's Day as possible. Though Elly tearfully accepts Jerry's proposal without hesitation, as she readies herself for her second wedding, the doubts and misgivings of any new bride-to-be are exacerbated by the abuse she suffered during her first marriage. When Elly recalls how quickly her uncertain stomach jitters grew into tight knots of pain on her wedding day, she also remembers how and why she'd fallen in love with and married Arthur, her first husband. A mistake she regrets more and more with each passing hour.

Though she's lived with Jerry for four months now, and been subject to his discipline more than once, her first husband had been kind and careful with her, too, in the beginning. At least until she vowed to love, honor and obey him. And their move to Corbin's Bend turned him from the strict, but caring husband she thought she'd married into a monster she no longer recognized.

A reader:

After her experiences with her previous abusive husband (detailed in the prior novel _A Simple Misunderstanding_) Eleanor finds it hard to trust that Jerry won't somehow slip into the same abusive patterns, even though she knows he is a very different person. Jerry insists that they deal with the trust issues, and some related conduct issues, before they marry. They work through them in part with a rather severe but quite hot punishment sequence. I admit to being surprised that Eleanor would ever accept another DD relationship, but given that, this is not implausible, I did think that Jerry was a bit over the top in how he handled things, but I could see why he was very frustrated, and he did offer options.
