I've missed the last one or two because I'm so busy with editing and things in my personal life that I'm just not writing as much. But I thought I'd give you a look-see into a story I have in the Love in the Rockies
Valentine's Day Collection from Corbin's Bend. My story is called Knowing What She Needs
. It's an update on Brent & Char from Finding Their Bliss
“Mommy, when’s Daddy getting home?”
Standing at the counter doing their breakfast dishes, Charmagne Kendle got a hold of her expression, forcing a smile as she looked over her shoulder at the beautiful little girl seated at their center island/breakfast bar. “Soon, honey. Daddy had to go into the clubhouse for a short time this morning, but then he’ll be back and it will be just the three of us all weekend. How does that sound?”
“Great!” Kayla exclaimed, a huge grin on her face. Brent had never let their little girl down before and she had innate trust in her father, something Char was struggling with right now. “Can we make a snowman?”
“As soon as Daddy gets home. Why don’t you go brush your teeth and pick out a couple books we can read to you later?”
“Yay!” the little girl called out, hopping off her stool and running out of the room.
Sighing softly, Char let her head hang down. The dish she was holding fell from her fingertips into the water as a slight tremor slid through her body. She shouldn’t be mad or angry or upset. This was who Brent was. He was a fixer and when someone was in need of his help, he had to go help them. She knew that and it was one of her favorite things about him. But… today was Valentine’s Day, a day they always spent together. Why couldn’t the citizens of Corbin’s Bend give them a day just for themselves?

In Knowing What She Needs:
Winter has been oppressive too long and Charmagne Kendle feels like she’s about to climb the walls. While she loves Brent, his need to take care of others when she thinks he should be home with her comes to a head on Valentine’s Day when the community suffers a massive power outage and instead of spending the day with her and Kayla, he’s at the dome working on community stuff. She knows it’s illogical, but at the moment she doesn’t care.
Brent knows the woman he loves is stressed and has a surprise in store to help lessen it. When she explodes, he sets her straight with an over-the-knee spanking that turns into a night of passionate lovemaking. Once she calms down, he delivers the best Valentine’s Day gift she could have received. Stress gone and having reconnected in the best way, when help is once again needed from the man she loves, Char has a choice to make: Accept it willingly. Or Detonate. One decision controls their future. Will she make the right one this Valentine’s Day?
