Exile to Unity — Corbin’s Bend Book Three 13

Today the third book of the Corbin’s Bend series, Exile to Unity by Tara Finnegan is released.  This is such a great series and I have been looking forward to this book after reading snippets on Saturday Spankings.  As soon as the links are up she will post them on the comments so you can buy it!  Here she is:

Hi Megan,
Thank you so much for inviting me here on release day of Exile to Unity. I know there is so much happening in  blogland over the next few weeks what with Spanking Romances A to Z challenge, and the Round Table discussion tomorrow, that I am really grateful to you for fitting me in. I’m so excited that I am running around like a headless chicken. Silly and scatty! 

This was such a fun project to work on, as we got to use characters
already developed by other writers, and I loved it. Sometimes I can be a bit fanciful when I read, and wonder about side characters from the story, what they might get up to etc. In this I got a chance to put that down on paper, which was wonderful. 
Meeting new friends…This is on the first day in Corbin’s
Bend. Ange and Jim have already had an argument, and she is overwrought from the stress of the move. Maeve Harshaw, (first introduced to you in Emily Tilton’s Sarah’s Tutorial) and Ange are already good online friends, and Maeve calls to help Ange settle in. I wanted to share this piece, to demonstrate the community aspect of Corbin’s Bend, and how characters readers have gotten to know and love will pop up again and again.
Excerpt, Exile to Unity, Corbin’s
Bend Book Three
She was stirred from her self-pity by a rap on the door. Ange contemplated not answering it as she knew she must look a fright but the rapping continued, and she wondered if Jim had forgotten his keys. Maeve came bustling in as Ange opened the door.
“Sorry to disturb you, but I wanted to catch you alone and I saw Jim out walking with the little ones, aren’t they just the cutest?”
It was only then that she actually seemed to look at Ange properly, and notice her tear stained face. “Oh, honey, what is it?” Maeve asked, guiding her by the arm into the living room and sitting on the sofa beside her drawing Ange into her ample bosom.
“I don’t know. What if it’s all a dreadful mistake? Coming here I mean. Jim seems to think it makes him in charge, which pisses me off. We know no one. We have no jobs. We’re here and it’s completely my fault. What if we packed up our lives for nothing?” Ang sobbed.
“That’s exactly why I like being in a head of household marriage, Ange.
I don’t have the burden of all the decisions. That responsibility belongs to Joe.”
“Does it not make you feel, I don’t know how to put it, maybe downtrodden?” Maeve gave a hearty laugh as she shook her head in denial. “It’s not like I don’t get a say, we still talk about things. It’s just Joe usually has the final say, but often I’ll talk him round. Look what happened with Sarah, he came around to her choices. If you have a good relationship, you’ll both respect each other, regardless of the dynamics. This is just the way we choose to do it.”
“I suppose you’re right, I’m just out of sorts with the move, and the court case, too, I guess.”
“You’ll figure out your own path it time. Just watch the others around you. See if you think the wives or subs aren’t respected. Most of them would tell you they feel cherished and taken care of, regardless of which path they follow. Of course everyone will tell you the way they do it is the only way. Don’t listen to them; the only way to live is what enriches you as a couple, not what works for someone else. What you need to worry about now is getting this place organized and making it feel like a home and I’m here to help. The sooner you do that, the sooner you can settle in and start to meet people.”
Blurb: Exile to Unity, Corbin’s Bend Book Three

When their preference for BDSM becomes embarrassingly public, Angela and Jim O’Brien decide to start afresh in Corbin’s Bend, a
community based on a common ethos of spanking, a place where Ange hopes they can belong.
Ange soon learns that in this new environment, Jim is not beyond chastising her with a good sound spanking as the couple face their past demons and try to recover the closeness they once shared. New challenges soon face the couple.  Will their difficulties destroy them or can their move be what Ange initially hoped for, an exile to unity
