This is the fifth ‘mini-teaser’ for Where They Both Belong since it’s being released this week. Takes off from yesterday’s post.
Stunned, she turned and stared. “Matt, three hundred applications for fifty homes? We’ll never get in.”
“Jules,” he said soothingly as he took her hand and slowed their car to a crawl to switch from paved highway to gravel road. “He told me that the majority of applicants had applied without thinking things through. They leapt without thinking. They’re being choosy about who moves in here. It’s where we belong,” he said, the longing in his voice.
Life-long residents of Mesa, Arizona, both of Matt & Julie Renton’s conservative families turned on them when their discipline lifestyle became public knowledge. Months after being fired from his job, Matt’s was just getting by doing day labor. Worried over Julie’s stress level, he set his hopes on getting into a new housing development in Colorado called Corbin’s Bend where they could be themselves and his lovely wife could finally relax.
Combined with Matt’s natural ability to find the most unique forms of discipline he could imagine, Julie found herself at home in their new community filled with wonderful residents who were nice, friendly, and the kind of people she could open up to.
Tried, true, and tested before they even reached Colorado, Matt and Julie worked hard to keep their relationship strong even as they started a new life. With a new job for Matt and complete acceptance from the community for Julie, they began to feel that this just might be where they belonged. Especially when the community’s welcome basket arrived with a little surprise.

Brittany broke a little rule. If she didn’t find a way to ease her boyfriend Trevor into hearing about it, she might not sit down for weeks. Prepared to soften him up with every one of his favorite dishes, it never occurred to her that in Corbin’s Bend, this kind of thing had a way of coming out, even if you didn’t want it to. Now the only thing left was a discipline spanking and it just might turn her world upside down.
