Brent: Truthfully? I’m pretty steamed. I can’t believe my wife pulled a stunt this like this!
Cara Bristol: Like what?
Brent: Running off. It’s our anniversary. It’s hard to surprise her, so when she hinted she wanted to take a luxury vacation for our anniversary, I pretended I had to work—and then I secretly booked the vacation she wanted. But then she got pissed and ran away! She left a casserole and a note on the fridge that said she was going to take the vacation without me! I had the trip booked, the tickets were in my briefcase, and our bags were packed and in the trunk of my car.
Cara Bristol: What are you going to do now?
Brent: I’m going after her, of course. But first I’m going to teach her a little lesson…
An excerpt from Wife on the Lam, Domestic Discipline
What the hell was Janelle wearing? His normally modest wife had paraded about in a tiny bra and butt floss! She didn’t own a suit like that. He knew because he’d packed both of them. They were in her bag in his tiny room with the garden view. She may not have noticed the men checking her out, but he did.
Hotter than a sunny, humid day in paradise, the scrap of nothing was more appropriate for a private show than a public one. He could envision spanking her in it.
He grinned. Now, that was an idea.
From behind a beach umbrella rental cabana, he watched her splash in the water. She squealed when a small wave crashed over her, and she popped up laughing, wiping her face. He loved her enjoyment of the moment, such a contrast to her forlorn expression in the restaurant where she’d had lunch. He’d almost caved and revealed himself then, but she needed to learn that she couldn’t run off half-cocked because she assumed he’d neglected her.
Didn’t she trust him? He’d never missed an anniversary.
He loved Janelle’s spontaneity. She brought sparkle to his life where otherwise it would have been bland and colorless. She inspired him, brought out his lighter side. He stroked the hair alongside his mouth. Look at the get-up she’d gotten him to wear.
On the flip side, she sometimes acted without considering the ramifications, and this latest stunt counted as the biggest. She so deserved a good, hard spanking.
He’d allow her a few minutes more before he hauled her out of the water. If she didn’t take care, her pretty, naked ass would be burned by more than the palm of his hand. He glanced at the sun, still high in the sky. She hadn’t applied any sunscreen that he’d noticed. Perhaps she’d put it on in the room, but maybe not.
Janelle stood and squeezed the water out of her hair, then sashayed to her lounger. Beaded nipples poked through the fabric of two tiny triangles that comprised the bikini top. A third tiny remnant pretended to cover her lady parts. The entire suit consisted of fabric scraps connected by strings. And on his forty-four-year-old wife and mother of his two college-aged children, it was sexy as all get-out. He glanced down at himself. Thank goodness for baggy shorts.
She reached her chaise and patted her face with her towel, turning her back to him, giving him a view of her pert, sexy ass. Yep, a spanking in that suit was definitely in order, and the fact that she wouldn’t be able to wear it in public afterwards counted as a bonus.
He expected her to shove her towel in her ginormous beach bag, but after drying herself, she flopped onto her stomach. Little fool! Didn’t she have any sense?
Brent dug his wallet from his back pocket. “How much are the beach umbrellas?” he asked the resort staff member manning the booth.
“They’re complimentary to guests of the Cabana Resort, sir.”
“Thank you.” Brent grabbed a pink one — the color her ass would be when he finished with her — slapped his Stetson on his head and tromped toward his wife.
