About This Book
"Maintenance Night." The very words make a submissive woman shudder in dread — and anticipation.
Lacey has always been just such a woman, and now she’s also a spanked wife, subject to her dominant husband’s rules, his discipline, and most of all, his desires.
She loves Troy with every atom of her being, and can’t get enough of him. But if that’s the case, why does she persist in disobeying him? For a loving couple in a serious D/s marriage, disobedience has its punishments — and its rewards.
And it’s on Maintenance Night that her husband decides to take Lacey’s submission to a deeper, even more intimate level.
Warning — this BDSM short novella features the following themes: spanking, caning, Dominance/submission (M/F), sadomasochism, bondage, explicit sex (including anal), a Dom who loves his wife, and a sweet, but disobedient sub who might be in over her head.
***Includes an excerpt from the BDSM erotica novella, "Night Beach".***

To Kate — for every precious day.
‘There will be a new punishment tonight. Be a good girl, and make sure you’re ready when I get home. You have a hard night ahead of you.
Lacey let the note flutter to the floor in front of the fireplace. She leaned on the gray stone of the hearth for a moment, shaking her head. It was Friday.
Apparently, he was serious about Fridays.
She looked at her phone. 5:40 PM.
“Shit.” She hurried down the hallway, knowing she had ten minutes — fifteen minutes tops, if he was late.
But he was never late on Maintenance Night.
Her buttocks twitched. That it would be a long, agonizing night for them was certain.
She jumped in the shower, squealing as her shaking hands turned the hot water up too high. She scrubbed herself scrupulously, knowing there was no part of her body her husband didn’t regard as his. And there would be hell to pay if he found any part of her not squeaky clean.
She cursed the lunchtime jog she’d taken that day at the office. For once, she was keeping to her exercise routine, and it was starting to pay off. She thought she needed to lose ten pounds, even though Troy kept after her about needing to
ten more pounds. It was just her luck that lithe, athletic Lacey would fall in love with and marry a man like Troy Stanton, who was more interested in the curves of a Christina Hendricks than he was the slenderness of a Jennifer Aniston.
Lacey was fairly certain she would
someone just to get the body of either one of those famous women. But the truth was, she was somewhere between those two extremes. Sure, she used to have the sleek lines of Aniston in college, but in the past couple of years, she’d gotten a
bigger. A more pronounced roundness perhaps, a larger butt for certain. Troy referred to it as her “filling out” for him — as if she was gaining weight on purpose. But oddly enough he loved it, loved her new body. She was ashamed of it, was disgusted with herself for it.
“Dammit Lace,” she said, stumbling out of the shower. “Stop daydreaming!”
She looked down, frowning at the deep tan of the floor tiles. Water was everywhere. There wasn’t time to clean it up. She looked at the clock on the counter.
Running into their bedroom, she attacked her dripping length of long black hair with a towel. She purposely averted her gaze from the shadowed corner of the room directly opposite their massive bed. She’d be there soon enough.
She zipped the skirt, struggling with the zipper at the top. The patterned, black skirt was breathlessly tight, just as he liked. The Dior stockings were the worst part, for she had to take her time with them. A tear or run would be disastrous. Her delicate hands shook as she rifled through her tops, looking for the one she knew he demanded for Maintenance Nights.
“There you are.” She snatched the ridiculously small tank from the drawer and dashed out to the living room.
The rumble of an engine grew loud outside.
He was home.
She hastily tucked the white tank top into her skirt as the garage door raised and lowered, the cutting out of the motor and the sudden silence snapping her to attention.
Her husband was built like a linebacker, but it was his unsettlingly intense gaze that first caught her eye back in college. He had the kind of rough-around-the-edges dark looks that would have any woman panting, yet for some reason he’d fixated on her.
Just the same way he fixated on her now as he walked through the door.
“Hi honey!” She perked up her smile, seeing him whistling. Whistling was usually a good sign.
He didn’t answer her though, and his gaze locked with hers.
Wrong. She was in trouble.
Maintenance Night meant she would be spanked; that was as sure as the sunrise. However, if he was unhappy with his wife for some other reason, he’d happily add on extra ‘tariffs’ as he liked to call them. Sometimes it would be some penance in the corner with her naked bottom on display. Other times it might mean her doing a stint in the Frame, her vulnerable flesh dancing to the tune of the thuddy leather flogger he favored for beating her breasts — though thankfully he saved that particular torment for grievous offenses.
He didn’t say a word as his fingers flipped through the mail, his hip against the bar that separated their kitchen from the living room. She felt small, her hands clasped behind her back as she stood, alone, in the middle of the expansive great room.
“How was work?” She moved to pick up the laptop case he’d set on the bar, but he grabbed her hand.
“Back in position,” he said, giving her fingers a quick squeeze.
“Just do it, Lacey. You’re already in enough trouble. Don’t make it worse.”
Lacey’s gaze slanted downward, and she retreated back to her spot. She licked her lips, willing herself to manufacture some saliva as her heartbeat pounded in her ears.
They’d agreed to this. They’d talked about it — a lot. At first Troy hadn’t been sure. She’d convinced him just to try it once. See what he thought. His first time spanking her was almost comical; she’d actually giggled at the tickle that she called that “inaugural spanking”.
That seemed like a thousand years ago.
He walked around her. It was the usual inspection: a smoothing of a skirt hem, a tuck of her unruly dark hair behind her ear.
She yelped as his hand swatted her ass. “Stand up straight. You’re slouching.”
Lacey snapped to ramrod attention.
“More, girl,” he said, standing to the side, just beyond her peripheral vision. “Stick those tits out.”
Straining to obey, she blushed at the way the position arched her back, sticking out her ass and essentially presenting her breasts to her husband.
“That’s better.” He returned to stand before her, looking down upon her from his great height.
Lacey knew better than to be fooled by his pleased tone at her obedience. This was just the beginning.
“You know what day this is, don’t you?”
Her eyebrow quirked upward. “Friday?”
“Sir,” he growled, not quite suppressing an amused curve of his lips.
“Yes, that’s right.” He moved around her again, and stood close behind her. The movement of his lips brushed the edge of her ear. “And what happens on Fridays?”
The whispered words washed over her, and she shivered as the coiling began deep in her belly. “Spanking.”
“Maintenance, Lacey.” He clasped the nape of her neck in his big hand, his finger gently stroking under her chin. ”You need maintenance.”
When she was struggling, crying, pleading as she lay over the steel hard slabs of his muscular thighs, she wasn’t sure she’d characterize herself as ‘needing’ it. But when a girl’s ass is on fire, the tears streaming down her face, she isn’t exactly thinking straight.
She dreaded this part. It was...participation. Agreement.
“Yes, Sir. I need to be spanked.”
“Go on.” His hand tightened.
“Because — because, I’ve disobeyed you.”
But I haven’t!
It didn’t matter, of course. Maintenance spankings were instituted in their marriage because Troy felt they were useful for correcting his wife for any minor misdeeds she may have committed during the week, and as a way to reinforce the power dynamics of their relationship.
Troy released her nape, his hands moving down and across the upper swells of her breasts. She wished she’d been allowed a bra to make them seem perkier, but he was more interested in easy access to her breasts than he was her vanity.
“Do you have anything to tell me?” His fingers deftly eased over the hard points of her nipples, the tips blatantly displayed under the snug tank top.
“I… I forgot to tell you when my period ended.”
In one of the most shocking orders she’d ever received from her husband, he’d decreed that she was to inform him when she started and ended her period. She’d had no idea why at the time, but the first time she called him at work with those embarrassing two words “I started”, she understood why.
