HI WIP IT UPPERS!I'm so excited, my Corbin's Bend book comes out in less than a month, and I am working on a book for Season 3!
This blurb happens at a totally different point in the story, when Josiah and Laney first meet.
These two have a fun and crazy dynamic from the get-go, and although they both knew they would meet eventually thanks to their match-making friends, it didn't quite happen the way they expected. Let's have a peek:
Just as Ginger and Beau drove away up First Street, a cab pulled up to the curb from the opposite
direction. This struck Josiah as odd, as he knew there was no cab services in Corbin’s Bend. Deciding to
stick around, he got in his car and waited, watching to make sure that everything was okay.
He watched as a slightly tipsy redhead got out of the cab, bending down to pay the driver, before she
made her way up the sidewalk towards him. She did a double take when she saw him, and he could have
sworn he heard her whisper his name. Followed by a clearer, “You have got to be freaking kidding me! I
do not need this right now!” As she stomped passed him, ignoring his polite greeting, he could see that
she was a knock-out. Short red hair, high cheekbones, smoldering green eyes. He could also see that
those eyes were clearly wet and laden with unshed tears. She turned and headed up the steps to the
home he had just left, and his heart jumped in his chest. This was Laney? The one Julie couldn’t stop
talking about, and who Beau thought needed a good spanking more than anything? She was gorgeous,
and for a moment he entertained very un-gentlemanlike thoughts about his being the one to give her
the spanking, that to hear tell, she so desperately seemed to need. Her ass, like the rest of her was
perfect, and he had a clear view of its round firmness through her very tight jeans as she ran up the
steps. He was tempted to stay where he was and enjoy the view for a few minutes before getting on his
way and back to work. But, she was clearly upset, and what kind of man or cop would he be, if he didn’t
make sure a pretty lady was safe and sound? She paused at the door, and stooped down to dig in her
oversize shoulder bag. “Crap! Crap! Crap!” he heard her exclaim, as she continued pawing through the
bag, growing more frantic.
“Excuse me, Ma’am, Miss?” Josiah saw his opening, and took it. “Is everything okay? I couldn’t help but
notice that you seem rather upset.” He crossed to the bottom of the steps in two long strides and
peered up at her.
“I’m fine!” she cried, refusing to look at him.
He raised his eyebrows, contemplating his next step. These rumors he had always heard about redheads
having the worst tempers, were undoubtedly true, if he counted tonight’s events as evidence. She was
the second redhead tonight to yell at him in the span of twenty minutes, regardless of the fact that he
was a perfect stranger and a cop to boot! And all he had done was offer his assistance! He chuckled to
himself. Truth be told, he wasn’t turned off by her apparent attitude. To the contrary. This woman
needed a spanking in the worst way, and somehow, someday, he vowed that he would be the one to
give it to her.
“Okay, then, if you’re fine, I’ll be on my way,” he said cheerfully, spinning on his heel, and turning in the
direction of his cop car.
“No-Wait!” He could hear her sigh in frustration over having to ask him for help.
“Yes?” He questioned, with a smirk over his shoulder at her, still heading towards his car.
“Hey! You asked if you could help! I said yes! Why are you getting in your car?” She ran down the steps
to catch up with him, just as he opened the driver’s side door and got in. “You’re really something- you
know that? You ask if I need help, and then, you get in your car and leave! Fine! Whatever! I don’t need
your help anyway! Just go-you-you big jerk!”
She attempted to slam his door shut, but Josiah grabbed her wrist, amused at her little rant. She was
seriously close to seeing the error of her ways.
“One- I asked if you needed help, and you declined my help. In fact, not only did you refuse me, but you
yelled at me, which might I add, is incredibly rude to do to anyone who offers you help, but especially to
someone you just met.”
“Let go of me!” Laney yelled, attempting to break away from his grasp. “It’s also incredibly rude to grab
onto people you just met! Let go, now you big oaf! Or- Or- I’ll call the cops!”
Josiah quirked his brow at her. “I am the cops,” he told her evenly. “Did you not notice my spiffy blue
uniform or this fancy white car with lights on top?” He couldn’t hide the amusement in his voice as
Laney stood there sputtering. She had no response for that one, so he continued. “Number two- I’m not
stupid. It’s obvious, even to a big jerk like me, that you left your keys somewhere. I’m guessing in your
car, which judging by the fact that you came home in a cab, and you’re a little bit tipsy, is at a bar
somewhere. Now, my shift is rather quiet tonight, so, I’m offering you a ride to get your keys. Now, get
in the car. Unless of course, you want to wait for your cousin to get home, from her restaurant which
someone apparently forgot to lock up properly tonight, causing the doors to blow open in the storm,
causing a cop to come knocking on their door at eleven o ‘clock at night, just in time to see your cousin
in the corner with a very red bottom. In case you can’t guess, she’s more than a little mad at you, and
she should be pulling in any moment. So, unless you’d really like to be here for that shit-storm, I suggest
you get in the car.”
Josiah Jefferson left the polygamist community he grew up in to make a
new home in Corbin's Bend and to find the one woman he could love and
spank for the rest of his life. He never expects to find her during his
first week, but when a summer storm brings Lannea Paulsen, the town's
beloved sushi chef into his life, he sees it as fate and never looks
Lannea Paulsen, better known as Laney to everyone but the stubborn
Josiah, has had two goals since she moved to Corbin's Bend last year
with her cousin. She wants to save enough money to buy half of The
Ginger Paddle, the sushi resteraunt she runs with her cousin, Ginger,
and to find a strong dominant man who is willing and ready to take her
in hand in every way possible. The trouble is whenever she gets close to
getting either of those things, she panics and finds some way to self-
When Laney puts the business in jeopardy, Josiah comes to the rescue,
and the two of them end up in a tumultuous platonic DD relationship.
Both of them want more, but neither is willing to admit it. Will they
settle for less than they desire or will they chase after everything
they have ever wanted. When Laney is seconds away from everything she
has ever wanted, will she panic and run away?
