Looks like there’s another bloghop about. And you know me -I’m a glutton for punishment. Well, yes, that kind too.
In this bloghop, we post 6 paragraphs from either a work in progress or a published work. While I write both M/F and M/M romance with a hint of spice, I’m mostly focused on M/M at the moment. So here is a snippet from A Good Family Man, my M/M contemporary romance that was just released this week.
A guy really needs to watch what he wishes for. Josh wished for a strong head of house. Why did Jack have to be inventive on his punishments? He’d rather have a spanking.
Before closing the door, he looked up into the sky. It was the first completely clear day in weeks. If Jack was here, he’d suggest going for a hike. Maybe if he’d fucking, well, come home. Errr, fricking? Fracking? He seriously needed a replacement for that word.
Grabbing a pair of shears, he sliced through the top of the package and upended it over his kitchen counter. The item that fell out made him gape. No fucking way. Soap? He couldn’t possibly…No. Jack could not mean for him to wash his mouth out with soap. Could he? Eww.
Swallowing hard, he wondered if there was something that could make the experience better or worse. If he drank something like juice, would the taste overpower the soap? Or would it combine to make it really dreadful? He could try a breath mint, he supposed, but what if the chemicals in it reacted with the soap? He’d seen all the YouTube videos with how Coke and Mentos reacted. Josh could just imagine him foaming at the mouth and Jack overreacting because he was so far away. Next thing he’d know, there would be an ambulance at his front door and Brent and Benjamin laughing their asses off. It seemed more prudent not to take anything.
Picking up his phone, he hit Jack’s speed dial.
“It’s there already?” The bastard sounded pleased.
“Yeah?” Josh looked down at the small bar of ivory soap and gulped.

About This Book
Jack Carmichael’s natural instinct is to take care of people. In his job as a U.S. Marshal, he has done that for 25 years. Unfortunately, being married to his job has left his love life in tatters. Now classified unfit for duty, he retires and comes home to Colorado to figure things out. Dominant and used to taking control like his brother Brent, he has never been interested in spanking. Until a cute Nurse Practitioner catches his attention.
Josh Martin feels lucky. He’s not only accepted into Corbin’s Bend, but he’ll be working at the brand new Corbin’s Bend Medical Clinic as its only Nurse Practitioner. At thirty-two, he figures this is his last-ditch attempt at finding a dominant partner who isn’t abusive. He finds more than his share of dominant men in Corbin’s Bend, not the least of which are the Carmichael brothers. Brent’s dominance is both comforting and unnerving, Jack’s turns him on.
Josh is unlike any submissive male Jack has encountered and when the younger man asks him out, he decides to give it a go. One day of fun turns into two, three…until Jack, with more failed relationships than he can count in his past and unsure he can be the head of house Josh needs, leaves, burying himself once again in work. Forced to see the error of his decision, he puts aside the worries that have plagued him for months and returns to Corbin’s Bend. To become the good family man he wants to be, he has to earn back Josh’s trust and truly take on a role he’s never considered before: head of a loving discipline household.
All Corbin’s Bend books can be read as standalones. Each book is about a different couple in the spanking community of Corbin’s Bend, Colorado.
And now on with more Sneak Peeks…
