Behind him, Kendra wailed, “Levi, I’m so sorry. I love you. May I please go to the toilet?”
Levi turned around. Kendra was looking up at him from where she lay tied over the bench, with a very contrite expression on her face.
“Not yet,” he said. “That’s my decision to make, sweetheart.” Deliberately, he turned back to the tub, and stirred the water to raise bubbles. He heard Kendra give a little sob of shame and discomfort behind him. “Please?” she wailed.
“No,” he said. “Not yet.” He stirred the water for a little while longer, then turned and rose, and went to untie his beautiful girl. There were beautiful shibari rope-marks on her wrists and on her ankles when he had unwound the rope, and he rubbed them to help ease the sensation for her. Really, he hoped they would have a lot of fun with this kind of bondage in times to come, but this was her first time, and even though it was a punishment, he wanted to be sure she didn’t fear being tied up.
Here's the blurb--buy it here!
When her mother injures several people while driving drunk, eighteen-year-old Kendra Jackson rushes to the hospital. In the emergency room, Dr. Levi Hunter promises her that everything is going to be okay, but she cannot imagine how the handsome medic’s words could possibly be true, especially once her mother is sent to prison.
Something about Kendra touches Levi, and try as he might, he cannot get her out of his head. Three years later, after another alcohol-induced crash—this time with Kendra behind the wheel—Levi pays her bail and brings her to his house to sober up. After examining her thoroughly—despite her protests and blushes—to make sure she’s not seriously injured, he offers to let her stay with him while she gets her life back on track. He warns her, though, that living under his roof means living with his rules… and breaking those rules will have consequences.
Despite her shock at his promise to discipline her when her behavior warrants it, Kendra agrees to his conditions. She soon discovers that Levi is a man of his word, and when bad habits start to creep back into her new life, he takes her over his knee, bares her bottom, and spanks her soundly. When she continues to test his resolve, Levi shows Kendra that a punishment from a firm-handed doctor can leave a naughty girl’s face even redder than her well-spanked bottom.
As their relationship blossoms into a passionate romance, Kendra is comforted by the fact that Levi’s discipline and love is something she can count on, and she begins to realize that no matter how many bad decisions she makes, he has no intention of ever giving up on her. But Kendra’s painful past still haunts her, and she cannot help but fear that what she has with Levi cannot last. Can she bring herself to obey her doctor’s orders and embrace her new life at his side?
