Corbin’s Bend – Have Paddle, Will Travel by Maren Smith

When a freak snow storm threatens to cut off the already remote community of Corbin's Bend from the rest of the world, the residents scramble to get enough emergency supplies from neighboring towns before the mountain roads are closed. It's sheer luck of the draw that force Ettie and Vance into the same car together. The only problem is, they can't stand one another. She's a submissive who hasn't been spanked in four very long years (four years, seven months, thirteen days...not that she was counting). He's the resident paddle and strap maker, a man known to answer the call of needy submissives everywhere. In his workshop at home, Vance has every implement he'd ever need to win a war like this. In a car in the middle of nowhere with the storm of the century bearing down upon them...who will win this particular battle was anybody's guess.

Ettie writes the local paper for Corbin’s Bend. If you have read any of the other Corbin’s Bend books you know that at times there are stories that are a little exaggerated or over the top and sometimes comical. Those are all Ettie’s doing. Vance is the resident paddle/leather strap maker and he is known to go to people’s houses and deliver some spankings. Ettie doesn’t like Vance and she makes it known in her weekly paper through some of her stories. When a snow storm forces Ettie and Vance on a supply run together things get tricky. Not only is there a storm in the truck, there is a huge storm outside of the truck. Things go from bad to worse and these two enemies will have to learn to get along if they want to survive. This was another great addition to the Corbin’s Bend series, my only complaint was it wasn’t long enough, I wanted to read more about these two.

Slow start that heated up quickly. Ettie publishes Corbin's Bend weekly newspaper and often writes fictional stories about her neighbor across the street, Vance Foster. Ettie is put out that Vance offers his spanking services to the single ladies of Corbin's Bend – everyone but her.

Vance doesn't understand why Ettie likes to write about horrible things happening to him, but his guilty pleasure is reading all the stories she writes, including the romance serial.

When a sudden snow storm hits Corbin's Bend, Ettie finds herself alone in a truck with Vance heading to nearest town in search for supplies. With the storm getting worse along with her attitude, Vance's hands are itching to smack Ettie's bottom. As the sparks continue to fly, Ettie can't help but wonder what it would be like to be one of Vance's spankees.

I really enjoyed this book and can't wait for the next installment in this series.

I have had the pleasure of reading all the Corbin’s Bend books to date, and have enjoyed all of them, but every so often one comes along which really makes me smile even more than usual. This certainly falls in that even better category.

Living in a spanking community but getting no spankings has made Ettie a very unhappy, bitter woman. She relieves her frustration through the nasty words she pens in her weekly paper. Vance, her neighbour, is often the butt of her cruel humour, even though he's never done her any harm. A freak storm and an unfortunate dunking soon put these two on a different footing. Loved that she just could not stop her mouth running away with itself! Loved that he was patient enough to wait it out!

Fun read, thank you.

I am an author of predominantly spanking-oriented romances. I have been writing and/or publishing under one name or another for over *cough* 20 *cough-cough* years. I am currently hard at work on the Masters of the Castle series and am looking forward to attending the RTConvention in New Orleans in 2014.

You can find my work on, Amazon, Smashwords, and Barnes and Noble, among others. I’d love to hear from you.
