About the Author

Shelly Douglas is not one person, but two! Shelly and Doug are longtime friends and over the years have shared a love of reading, especially spy and serial murder novels. While on a “couples” vacation with their respective spouses, Shelly began exploring the world of domestic discipline on her Kindle and was utterly fascinated. Neither she nor Doug had ever heard of this lifestyle, but they quickly decided it was exactly the genre that would keep Shelly's mind racing and fingers glued to the keyboard! As luck would have it, Doug was not far “behind” in wanting to be a part of the creative process. Having a man and woman’s perspective made for an interesting collaborative writing experience that resulted in a book we hope our readers will enjoy. Shelly and Doug both live in Western Pennsylvania with their supportive spouses. Their children are now grown and living on their own.

Columbo Meets the Spanking World It is with much excitement I recommend this book. While my husband and I have read many novels that contain spanking, never have we found a book which offered such a 'who done it." If you are fan Cold Case or numerous documentaries about unsolved murders and mysteries you will LOVE this one! The main characters Jackie and Daniel will make you care and the writing is witty and brilliant. And, the way the characters get together, is something we all dream of happening, but never does. they find each other through their past and together revitalize their spirit and interest in the throes of love and the domestic discipline that makes their lives, so rare.

Wow! This book was a page-turner. I couldn't put it down! I kept wondering who the murderer was and trying to read just a few pages more before falling asleep at night. With some books it takes a great deal of time to become invested in the characters and understand the basic surroundings. This is not one of those books. I saw the potential of the characters and became acclimated to the surroundings almost immediately. Jackie’s husband dies in a boating accident in Hilton Head – that maybe wasn't accidental. Daniel – Jackie’s brother in-law, lost his wife in the same boating accident that killed Jackie’s husband.  Now that a new investigator is taking a fresh look at the case, Jackie is expected to travel back to Hilton Head for another round of questioning. Daniel, who is living in a big empty house, is happy to welcome her back. Now a flame is starting to ignite between Jackie and Daniel. She undoubtedly misses her husband but he has been gone for 5 years and she needs to find new happiness. But will Jackie and Daniel survive the investigation? I would classify this book as a mystery with a strong domestic discipline twist and minor hints of age-play.

DOMESTIC DISCIPLINE MURDER MYSTERY This highly charged erotic story kept me on the edge of my seat, I was so captivated with the plot and characters. It was a combination of Murder She Wrote and Colombo trying to find out who caused the explosion on the yacht five years prior, that killed Joey Bonerati, his sister-in-law, Christina and left Daniel Bonerati  injured. When a new detective, Mike Andrews, retired from the Coast Guard, was placed on the case, Jackie Bonerati was summoned back to Hilton Head, SC.  Det. Andrews has reopened this five-year-old mystery of the boat explosion where two people died. but their bodies were never recovered.  This story is extremely well written, with interesting characters, lots of mysteries that kept the story in suspense, but cloaked in a way you suspected certain people, but still had some doubts. The twenty-five-year friendship of brother-in-law, Daniel, and sister-in-law, Jackie, was always a strong bond.  With her return to Hilton Head, it escalates into a romantic relationship easily. Danny suspected that his brother and sister-in-law had a domestic discipline relationship and when confronting Jackie, it is acknowledged, and he tells her, his house, his rules.  Not only does this relationship have DD but age-play elements.  The sex scenes are explicit, hot, and detailed.  Although this book is not portrayed as a series, there are enough elements to allow that to happen, especially with the mystery man that Jackie keeps seeing off in a distance watching her.

This wasn’t a bad book, and certainly had some enjoyable parts, but it also had some issues. The writing, while not bad, was a little choppy at times. The characters were likable, and the hero and heroine had a good connection. I liked the fact that they had known each other for a long time and been friends in addition to their families having been linked (though I do think the kids would have had more to say on this issue…). Generally speaking, the relationship developed nicely, and there were some hot scenes, but some things bothered me (without giving too much away, I’ll just say there was an element added a little later in the book that made the intimate scenes a bit on the creepy side—at least for me). As to the suspense, again it was something of a mixed bag. Some elements of the mystery were good, others just annoying. The most irritating part, for me, was that some of the information we should have gotten along the way (since the characters did) was just dumped in the epilogue (six months later: ‘here’s what you didn’t know, but we did…’). Aside from being bad writing, that was a bit of a cheat, since if we’d known that stuff, we probably would have been able to figure stuff out. Overall, not bad, but could be a lot better. *I recieved this book from the publisher, in exchange for an honest review.*
