Sample Chapter

 Carol Sands is a fifty-three year old educational consultant with a doctorate.  She is in love with a fifty-five year old retired Marine named Martin, but their relationship hits a bump in the road when Carol becomes distraught over a disqualifying mistake in her proposal for what would have been her dream curriculum development project.

She goes with a friend to a poetry reading at a café, and over the course of the evening she drinks too much wine and uses cocaine for the first time in her life. After driving home highly impaired, Carol is overwhelmed by regret. Adding to her dilemma is a pledge of self-imposed discipline she made to her concerned mother when she was eighteen. She promised that if she ever used drugs, she would force herself to find some respectable gentleman to give her a long, hard spanking on her bare bottom. Now she has triggered the pledge, and has a strong man in her life who believes she needs to follow through on the promise, and is willing to administer the spanking of her lifetime.

She has confided in Martin, her best friend Marlene, and even a psychologist about the pledge. However, all agree that she must decide for herself whether to follow through and accept her spanking.

    A great story. She is so riddled with guilt because she broke a promise to her Mother about the one thing she thought she\\\’d never do and promised to submit to a painful spanking if she ever broke that promise. Her best friend and her therapist and her boyfriend Martin Hear her out and know they have to leave the final decision to her knowing that in the end (Pardon the pun) she will do the right thing and make the decision that she struggles with for most of the story. It\\\’s hard for a 53 year old accomplished professional woman with a doctorate to ask her boyfriend to help her keep that promise and spank her soundly for a bad decision she made.

    This was a good book relating back to a promise she made to her mother that if she ever used drugs she would find someone to spank her. It shows your never too old to be spanked. cc

    I enjoyed the plot outline and the characters in this story. It just seemed to be a slow moving story for me with the telling of the promise over and over again…

    Carol feels so guilty and ashamed for doing something really stupid. She spends the better part of this story deciding whether she should ask Martin to spank her to fufill a promise to her mother. An interesting study of a middle aged couple. I enjoyed the story and liked these characters.

    Great story! I loved the idea of this story. But I liked the characters so much that I wanted more! It was SO all about her deciding whether or not to fulfill her promise of getting the spanking that when it finally came, it wasn\\\’t quite enough for me.

    This one was just OK for me — I understood the angst, but it seemed like too much wringing of hands and not enough of the end result.
