Mary, thank you so much for having me here today! I was lucky to be part of a new Medieval spanking romance box set with authors Sue Lyndon, Ashe Barker, Korey Mae Johnson and Dinah McLeod. All the stories begin with the sacking of Hohenzollern Castle, when the heroines of the books are carried off by the conquering knights. My story follows Lady Daisy, a young woman who suffered a terrible fate when her castle had been sacked years ago, and now is terrified to be with a man. Her new husband, has a very coaxing, yet still dominant way with her. They strike a bargain–she must give her body over to his seduction and he will not consummate the marriage until she begs him for it. Certain she will never do such a thing, she agrees.
Here’s a scene with the two of them:
She stood, wringing her hands as he shut the door. “Forgive me, Barrett—sir…my lord,” she tried again.
She saw a glimmer of a smile on his lips and her heart picked up speed. He pointed to the bed. “Bend over and lift your skirts.”
She walked, weak-kneed to the bed and folded her torso over the feather mattress. She could not figure out any way to lift her skirts with her wrists tied, but she made a show of attempting it so he would not think her disobedient.
“I’ll get them,” he said behind her.
She twisted to look over her shoulder and saw he carried a riding crop. Leaping back to her feet, she whirled. “Is-is that truly necessary? I mean, could you not bend me over your lap and use your hand as you did before?”
He tapped the crop in his palm. “I would love to, but it takes quite a bit more time to make an impression that way, and my brother needs me outside today.”
She shivered. I would love to. He probably did love spanking her. And yet he was not a cruel man. What could it mean?
He turned her and pushed her upper back down to lay on the bed, throwing her skirts up over her head. “Eight strokes for biting. You will count each one.” Before she had a chance to draw a breath, he delivered the first searing stroke.
She squealed and stood on her tiptoes, squeezing her bottom cheeks together, tucking her tail like a naughty dog.
“I asked you to count them,” he reminded her.
“One,” she gasped.
He landed another one. “One, sir,” he corrected.
“One, sir, two, sir,” she said quickly, hoping he hadn’t meant for her to repeat number one.
He chuckled. “I’ll let you get away with that just this once.” He brought the crop down again.
She gasped. A terrible burn from the first welt had begun to set in, even as the shock of the third ricocheted through her body. “Three, sir,” she managed.
“Good girl,” he murmured, though she did not know what merited the praise.
He sliced the crop through the air three times quickly, making her clamp her mouth closed on a scream. Without thinking, she started to scramble away, onto the bed.
“Daisy,” he said, keeping his voice low. “Back in position.”
“Four, five and six, sir,” she said as soon as she had caught her breath. Reluctantly, she pushed her legs back down to present her bottom for his chastisement. “I’m sorry,” she whispered.
“We’re almost finished,” he said, applying the cruel leather rod on a diagonal across her buttocks.
“Seven! Seven, sir.”
“One more.” He caught her on the underside of her buttocks, right where cheek met thigh.
She lifted to her toes again, sucking in her breath. It was three long beats before she could speak. “Eight, sir.”
“Thank you, Daisy,” he said, his voice soft and gentle.
This hot scene is just one of many in the Conquered Brides Collection! Thanks Renee for stopping by ❤ Love your cover 😉
Avowed to never again yield to a man’s ill-treatment, Lady Daisy stands ready to fight to the death when her castle is sacked. The imposing knight Sir Barrett has other ideas, however, and to her dismay, Daisy soon finds herself not only disarmed, but soundly spanked as well. Sir Barrett takes her as his captive bride, but when she shows real terror at the prospect of consummating their marriage, he offers her a bargain. She will offer her body to him and accept the pleasurable torments he inflicts, but he will not claim her fully until she aches for it so badly she begs him. Certain she will do no such thing, Daisy agrees, but can she resist the knight’s seduction?
