Guest: Meeting Mr. Pink by Angela Sargenti
Welcome to all my guests, and a special welcome to Angela Sargenti, who is making her first appearance on Patricia Green Books. I’m sure it won’t be her last. Today, she’s introducing us to Meeting Mr. Pink, a brand new book that has so much character and down home charm, I can’t say enough about it. I hope you’ll be as captivated by her style as I am.
Here’s a bit about Meeting Mr. Pink:
Bored and restless, Gwen refuses to marry her long-time beau, Earl. He endeavors to end her boredom by introducing her to something new—kink. In particular, domestic discipline, bondage, and spanking. He even buys her a paddle of her own, nicknamed Mr. Pink. When he puts her over his knee and spanks her with it, she takes a shine to her special new friend. Can Mr. Pink help persuade the reluctant Miss to become a happily-married Mrs., or will their relationship unravel?
And a fun excerpt (I love the tone and cadence of this):
Earl reached out a still-trembling hand and drew me to him.
“I got some money saved up for the wedding, Gwen.”
I stiffened in his arms and pulled away.
I glanced away. How was I ever going to convince him to quit bringing it up?
As if reading my mind, he answered.
“If you ain’t never gonna marry me, Gwen, then I think you ought to quit leading me on.”
“Yeah, you. Look at what you’re wearing. No woman dresses like that unless she’s trying to get a man to marry her, or she’s a whore.”
Eyes wide, I turned to him.
“You calling me a whore, Earl Springer?”
“No, the other one.”
“I am not trying to get you to marry me, so you can just put that idea right out of your head.”
“Why not? What’s so wrong about me?”
“It ain’t you. I told you that before, Earl. I just don’t want to get stuck in this town. I’m sick and tired living here. I just want to move up to Raleigh and run me a Chinese restaurant or something.”
“Why can’t you do that here, sugar? Hell, you already got the diner.”
“It don’t matter where I try to do it, Earl. I ain’t got the money in the first place.”
“Then I’ll work harder, baby. We can close down the diner for a little bit and change it around, just the way you want it. I don’t want your dream to slip away, Gwen. You’ve always been there for me.”
I gazed into his eyes. He was being real, almost too real for me.
“You know I love you, baby,” he told me.
I stared off into the distance, trying to imagine myself anywhere but here. The fact that I couldn’t frightened me a little. My eyes met his again and he looked wounded, like my silence had hurt him. I felt awful about it and tried to smooth things over.
“I’m sorry, Earl. You know I love you, but I don’t think I can stand living here the whole rest of my life.”
“Well, can’t I come with you, honey? We can get married, make it all legal and all.”
“Let me think about it a while,” I said, rising to my feet.
“Think about what?” he asked. “What’s there to think about?”
“Just…I don’t know.”
Earl bent down and started gathering up his clothes. I watched in dismay, and then I went back into the bedroom to change out of my pretty new corset.
I looked down at myself.
Earl was right.
I had no right whetting his sexual appetite the way I did if I had no serious intentions toward him.
When I came back into the living room, he was all dressed and on the point of leaving.
“I gotta go, honey,” he told me, giving me a peck on the cheek. “There’s a car broke down on the interstate I have to tow.”
Feelings of guilt washed over me. Earl worked so hard, going to his regular job and then driving the tow truck several nights a week, a job that made me sick with worry. People wrecked out on the highway all the time these days. Hell, last year a state trooper even got killed when a drunk veered off the road.
When I thought about it, I felt pretty foolish.
What more could I ask for?
