If you like Saturday morning stories with a touch of discipline, #SatSpanks is the blog hop for you. We are a listing of published authors who write domestic discipline (or the like) books and attempt to make a living from it. On a Saturday, we take eight lines from our work and post it for you to read.

Don't keep a high balance on your credit card!!
This week's snippet is from my latest release, ''The Shortlist'', book II in the WALDORF MANOR series
Synopsis: "The Shortlist: Bennett Fowler follows up on his best friend, Brayden James' shortlist, to find his own charge to look after. Completely against his beliefs and expectations, Bennett discovers feelings for his new charge will complicate their arrangement. How does a man with strong convictions plan to handle that?
Now for the scene: In this Chapter, Elisabeth Warner is sitting beside Bennett at the bank where he's just payed in an extortionate amount of money to ensure her parents' mortgage is paid off, they remain retired, and are properly cared for, considering they will lose their 'caregiver' daughter once she moves to Barton-Court house to live with him under their strictly platonic, disciplinary relationship. Whilst Bennett is ensuring everything is in order with her family's finances he discovers Elisabeth also had a credit card with an unexpected balance.
“I beg your pardon, how much??” Bennett asked.
“£5,864.53. The £864.53 are overage fees; her credit limit is actually £5,000,” said the banking officer. It was obvious Bennett had taken over the conversation by that point and despite the account being solely in Elisabeth’s name, confidentiality went right out the window.
“Elisabeth Warner, what on earth have you done with £5,000?”
“You spent three million on your house,” Elisabeth mumbled sheepishly, as if to justify the amount she had ‘wasted.’ The bank officer was most amused by the implied relationship of the two sitting in front of him.
“Close that account at once, please. You can do so with this,” Bennett said, as he handed over his Coutts debit card. “Expect to go across my knee when we get home, young lady."
