Author: Kathryn R. Blake
Valentine's Day in Corbin's Bend. As Elly Benson readies herself for her second wedding, the doubts and misgivings of any new bride-to-be are exacerbated by the abuse she suffered during her first marriage.
Though she's lived with Jerry Douglas for four months now, and been subject to his deiscipline more than once, Elly's first husband had been kind and careful with her, too, until the day she vowed to love, honor and obey him. And their move to Corbin's Bend turned him from the strict, but caring husband she thought she'd married into a monster she no longer recognized.
Excerpt: (With their wedding less than a week away, Eleanor Benson's (Elly) misgivings have developed into a migraine. Certain her fears are more imaginary than valid, she resists bothering her future husband when she's informed he's with a client. However, when Jerry learns Elly had attempted to see him, he comes home to check on her. )
"What's wrong?" Jerry asked with a glance at the strewn books before he centered his gaze directly on her.
Elly groaned. The man was far too perceptive sometimes. "Nothing. I just thought I would drop by and check how you were doing."
"Uh huh. Care to try that again, sweetheart?"
Her shoulders dropping Elly confessed, "I think I'm getting another migraine."
He crossed over and placed the back of his hand against her forehead. "Take anything for it?"
"No. Not yet. It only just started." Okay, that was a lie, which would get her in even deeper trouble if he found out. She held still beneath his hand, but knew she was flushed, so she suspected he would be escorting her into the bathroom next.
He gave a brisk nod, then grabbed her hand. "Come with me."
"Jerry," she protested, but cut off her words with a grimace under his angry glare. Though he didn't make taking her temperature a punishment, exactly. He did make it an exercise in obedience.
