This week, I’m giving you another snippet from A Good Family Man, a m/m DD romance from the Corbin’s Bend series which will be out on August 6th. I gave you a couple snippets introducing you to Jack and Josh a few weeks ago. Now, for the next few weeks, let’s see these two as a couple.
Two mornings later, he received an unexpected call. “Carmichael,” he barked into the phone, the same way he interacted when he was in the field: no-nonsense and definitely in control. A quiet gasp met his ears and he stood up from where he’d been bent over his bed looking at information on several companies in the Denver area he might consider working for.
“Hello?” he said.
“Uh, hi, Jack. It’s Josh.”
Surprised, he felt a few muscles tense in a way he hadn’t felt in quite some time. “Josh, how’s your new life up in spanko central?” Even as the words left his lips, he shook his head. That was the kind of thing he’d say to Brent, not one of the community’s residents. Obviously he needed to get back to work and use his brain as it was going to mush.
A nice laugh crossed the line. “Fine. I actually had to come down to Denver today to pick up something I’d forgotten and I find myself with a couple hours to kill. How do you feel about hitting the Denver Bouldering Club?”
“I’ve seen adverts about it but haven’t been there. It sounds fun. When and where shall I meet you?”
Thirty minutes later, he was dressed in shorts and a tank top and headed downtown. He hadn’t expected to hear from Josh at all, let alone two days after the man moved over an hour away. But he also didn’t believe in coincidence or things happening for no reason. It had been obvious the younger man was attracted to him the other day and by his physical reaction this morning, he had no doubt about his attraction. At dinner with Brent the other night, his brother had given him the smack he’d needed.
“You just need to take control again, Jack. Over the last few months, control was ripped from you in all aspects of your life. Even your choice to retire wasn’t really a choice, just the better of two evils. Take charge again, brother. Just like me, that’s where you’re at your best. Let everything else follow.”
Brent was right and Jack figured even if he didn’t know what he wanted to do with his life, he knew who he would like to see again, and who he wouldn’t mind taking to bed. It had been a few years since he’d been with a man, not counting dark rooms in even darker clubs. Maybe it was time to get back on that fucking horse.

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.
