They can be anyone, anywhere, given the right circumstances. These stories are about just such men - quiet, strong, intelligent men who provide exactly what their heroines need - whether its a hot meal or an even hotter bottom!The Day Care TeacherNever date a co-worker. Its a maxim that was never hard for Kelly Andrews to live by - there generally arent many men working with preschoolers. The hours are long, the pay is low, no health insurance and few benefits. But everything changes when Tom Cooper comes to Start Right Child Care Center. The gorgeous hunk is great with kids and parents alike. He knows just how to get the wiggly ones to sleep at nap time, and how to diffuse a tense situation before it blows out of control. The fact is, Tom Cooper is irresistible. But he doesnt believe in dating.Kelly didnt realize that when she went out with him for pizza. Or when he took her to the senior center to play cards with a bunch of old folks. Tom claims he isnt dating her, hes courting her. His ultimate goal is marriage. Shed like nothing better than to be a stay-home mother and raise a house full of children, but can she make a life with Tom? Hes too perfect. Except for his belief that a sound spanking is the right response for poor choices.Kelly knows she is far from perfect. Growing up in foster homes with no real parental guidance, she has a lot to learn. Tom teaches her about responsibility and commitment. He teaches her about family. But the one thing she needs more than anything else, he isnt willing to give. Can they forge a future together, or will Kelly have to let Mr. Perfect get away?The PainterIt had all seemed like a big adventure when Shannon decided to withdraw from college, collect the partial refund and run off to the big city to begin a career in modeling. Maybe one day she would have a penthouse apartment and a chauffeur - which would be quite a change from her rural upbringing. But she couldnt get a job without references, and she couldnt get references without experience. Shannon was so hungry, that she would do anything - lie, cheat, or steal - just to get that first big break! Then she overheard two women talking about the famous artist, Kerrick Peyton, and how he was looking for a new model.What she didnt know, though, was that Kerrick only painted nudes. And it was in his contract that he would discipline his models any way he saw fit to get the results he required. She wasnt in his studio even an hour before she found herself over his knee for her very first spanking ever. And did it hurt! Yet, she really needed the job - which was going to last six weeks. Six whole weeks of eating three meals a day, and having a warm place to sleep at night. She could do it. She had to! If only she could just learn to do as he asked the first time - shed save herself a lot of spankings!The LibrarianNOT all librarians are dorks. Some are downright studs. And some - unfortunately for Bailey Yates - spank. Hard. Bailey is the young wife of a small-town Wisconsin librarian who takes his job very seriously. And AJ Yates takes Bailey seriously, knowing that his wife did not have the educational opportunities or family support as a teen. AJ is strict but fair, believing that a program of domestic discipline is the best thing he can do for his wife.When Bailey is punished, she not only spends time over her husbands knee, but is subject to corner time and then must write an essay. AJ is a librarian, after all. But one day - after a not particularly heinous offense - AJ is suprised at her writing assignment. Its not an essay at all - but a research paper on the childhood of Abraham Lincoln. Its going to take her a week - or more. And why did AJ choose this topic? What lessons does he want Bailey to learn?
