In the Driving Seat


“In The Driving Seat” is one of the stories in the romantic domestic discipline anthology “Spanked!”

“In The Driving Seat”

Barbara loves to shop…especially for shoes. But she never would have thought that buying a pair of shoes would land her in so much trouble.

Alan is tired of fighting with Barbara about money. He decides after one pair of $1500 shoes too many that what Barbara really needs is a spanking.


I love the whole process of storytelling, though as a dyslexic the mechanical act of writing has never come easily to me. From the early days I have quite an impressive collection of reject letters and I was at the point of giving up as a writer when I met up with Laurie Sanders of Black Velvet Seductions. Without her nurturing and time intensive editing I would not be in print today. I have four adult romance stories with them and three in the pipe line. Laurie and I have also written and illustrated a humorous children’s book. My first non-fiction book with BVS, Beauty in Every Form, has now been published (May 2013) after something of a journey!


“This is ours? Right? He shook the piece of paper. “I was just wondering if I had opened the statement for the third world debt by mistake.”

Barbara felt herself smile, involuntarily. She had always loved his sense of humor, but she hated it when he used it sarcastically. It was like having something she loved used against her as a weapon. Her teeth squeezed her lower lip, as she tried to suppress the deep sadness that filled her, threatening to overwhelm her. She’d felt herself succumbing to this familiar feeling of sadness and isolation as Alad had become stingier and stingier.

As she sat before him, she felt her anger rising at the thought of him goading her. She found it frustrating, as there really was no reply to his sarcastic humor.

“Well? The shoes. Are they solid gold? Or what?”

“What the hell do you know of style?”

“I know how fucking much it costs.” She saw the muscles in his jaw go tight.

  1. I’ve been in her shoes. LOL. Because shoes are beautiful, and you can never have too many pairs. This was a great story.

    1. lol, Thank you, Gibby. Well, shoes often come at a price. The one I am working on at the moment has our hero and heroine having words over her excessive mobile phone use lol

    1. Thanks, Patricia, lol well, I think shoes do say a lot. One of my first erotic paintings was a black patent leather 5-inch Stellato, and black seamed stocking… it hung in my studio. my accountant came in for a meeting and asked “Why would someone want a picture of s shoe?” so you are not alone in not understanding the allure of shoes lol
