Unexpected Consequences

Rod and Cane Society Book 1

Will Melania and Jared's wedding bliss evaporate with their first spat? Can it withstand the first spanking or will it all fall apart? Their love lost with the fear and misunderstanding? When Jared delivers Melania's punishment she is surprised and confused. Melania must decide if she can handle and accept Jared's way of life or walk away.

While I enjoyed the storyline of this book I did not connect at all with the main character of Melania. She was too na‹ve for me and although she seemed to start to understand her relationship and marriage to Jared Melania still acted like a child. I did however like Jared he was a strong man who finds out that love comes before everything when it comes to his marriage. Seeing the two fight for their love and marriage was a nice read. I really enjoyed that we are shown the effects and thought s of both characters after the spanking. It was nice to see both Jared and Melania work things out in their own way. The love that they have for each other is evident in all that they do.

Although I enjoy stories about discipline I did not enjoy the thinking that was behind the discipline in this book. That did not stop me from enjoying this author's style and will be sure to look for more books in the future.

Book Blurb for Unexpected Consequences

Jared belongs to the Rod and Cane Society, a secret organization of men who spank their wives to maintain domestic discipline. When Melania ignores a “request” from her husband and attempts to hide her disobedience, Jared spanks her.

While Jared believes the unpleasantness has been settled, for Melania it only has begun. Although she consented to the spanking, her fairytale notion of marriage has been shattered and she makes plans to leave Jared as soon as her parents return from vacation.

While she waits, Melania begins to see more positive aspects of domestic discipline. But just as she decides her love for Jared is paramount and she might be able to accept a domestic discipline marriage, Jared discovers she’d planned to leave him and once again her marriage is in jeopardy.

Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable: paddling, spanking.
