Four puzzled husbands. Five mischievous young wives. Justin Burke's secret sweeps through their homes to restore domestic tranquility.
Justin Burke's family had a long and distinguished reputation for domestic tranquility. His father, and his father before him, believed a good spanking properly delivered was the secret to a happy marriage. He just hadn't had the opportunity to introduce it to his new bride, so when he returned from a business venture to wild tales of how his wife had infiltrated the gentlemen's club in his absence, he knew he could not put it off a moment longer.
What he hadn't anticipated was that his friends would want to know his family's secret. As discretely as possible, he would show them and his bride later that evening.
Each husband then rises to the challenge.
Benjamin's bride is a bit of shrew. She speaks with disrespect and barely acknowledges her husband at all. Christopher's bride is a flirt and a shameless tease. Jeffrey's bride spends money outrageously.
Darren has been married the longest of the five friends, nearly five years. His wife doesn't have any one particular habit that needs to be addressed, yet their relationship is in more peril than any of the others. He had been ignoring her many annoying little habits, until the buried resentment threatens to pull them apart.
Follow along with the friends as they each interpret the Burke family secret to their own situation. And after months of new instruction, what happens when the five wives all get together to enjoy a perfectly scandalous day trip?

Ummm.... no thanks
DNF. Tried to skim through but couldn’t even do that. This whole book is about a group of well-to-do Victorian men that spank their wives for punishment. The spanking isn’t sexual or playful, nor does it have that love/trust BDSM element that some people are into. There is no evidence of any kind of loving relationship between the spouses. The wives just get spanked to be more “biddable.” Some scenes are downright humiliating and none of the wives or even husbands express any pleasure at any time. It’s gross and not even a little sexy.
