Are You Sitting Comfortably by Bethany Leigh

A great way for me to start off the Memorial Day weekend is visiting with Bethany Leigh today.  She has a new release out Are You Sitting Comfortably.  It’s eight short spanking stories!  How fun is that!

If you are lucky enough to get to the beach this weekend, or just want an entertaining read, get yours today.

Are You Sitting Comfortably


Are you sitting comfortably?

These ladies aren’t.  After defiance, hijinks, bad attitude and other misbehaviour lands them a trip across a stern partner’s knee.

Penny’s husband Hayden wants to revive domestic discipline as well as romance as they travel around Australia. Penny isn’t so sure, but then she ignores an important instruction.

Lucy’s trying to trace a poison-pen writer and searching for an office to set up her own PI agency. Can she find a location boyfriend Noel approves of? (A standalone mystery featuring Lucy from At Dead of Night.)

Lady Helena has run away with her family’s footman after having a disastrous marriage declared void. How will she cope with life as lowly servant Nell? (Featuring two new characters from the Lady Margia/Freedom universe.)

Ruth is in love with the headmaster of the school where she works as a nurse. He seems unaware of her existence – until her madcap friend comes to stay, and a prank goes horribly wrong.

Enjoy eight short spanking stories, featuring feisty heroines from a range of genres – contemporary, mystery, historical and alt-history – all with one thing in common. They all have a man who knows just how to bring them back in line!


Feeling foolish, she made her way to Mr Morton’s office at break.

He was sitting behind his desk, midway through marking a pile of essays, when she entered. She’d never been in his office before. It was lined with bulging bookshelves, and offered a view of the rugby pitch out of the window.

“Ah, Nurse Garrison,” he said, looking up at her with a smile when she entered. “What can I do for you?”

The smile made her insides melt and her mouth went dry. She so wanted this man to like her, to fancy her, and she’d come to tell him this. He’d despise her when she told him.

“I –” She hesitated, trying to find the words.

“Come on, Nurse, let me know the worst,” he said. “Please don’t tell me we’ve got an outbreak of measles or whooping cough!”

She shook her head. “No – nothing like that.”

“Well, if it’s not a contagious disease, then it’s not going to be a huge problem,” he said. When Ruth still hesitated he added firmly, “Whatever it is, you need to tell me quickly, because as Matron has probably told you, some little genius set the school bell off in the night, and I’m hoping he’ll come along soon to own up.”

She gulped; now was the time. “It was me,” she got out somehow. “Or rather, it was my friend.”

Mr Morton frowned. “I’m sorry?”

“I had a friend visiting and we stayed out too late at the pub so my landlady locked us out of my bedsit. Well, we weren’t late, actually – she locked the door early because…well, because she’s a spiteful beast. But Vicky had to be up really early for her train and we didn’t have an alarm clock, so she tried to change the time of the rising-bell and…” Ruth caught the incredulous expression on his face and burst into tears. She felt so stupid, so immature, so scared. What if he sacked her?
