Carr’s story of rekindled love is tender without becoming maudlin. She excels at fitting a well-rounded story into this brief format. It is fun to watch the protagonists grow as a couple. They use extraordinary measures to find their happy ever after.

Len and Cissy are having marital problems. Their sex is vanilla; he cusses a blue streak and doesn’t help around the house. Cissy develops a list detailing a system of chores with sexual rewards and punishments for when he misbehaves. Len uses their computer to investigate women taking charge and discovers links to websites Cissy has been exploring. When she suggests spanking him for misdeeds, he agrees — and their relationship takes a new direction. (ELLORASCAVE.COM, dl $5.60)
