Welcome back for another edition of Dungeon Crawl!
I have another little piece from Emmaline's Groom, this actually follows up what I posted last Wednesday. We left with Emmaline in the corner with soap in her mouth. She had stupidly told Leo she was not afraid of any spanking he could give her so he exercised these other methods of punishment-- and now she is getting the strap.
He pulled her toward the bed where he had stacked the pillows on top of each other. The razor strap lay innocuously beside them.
Her tears started anew and she shook her head.
"Next time you will think twice before you do something like this."
She opened her mouth, wanting to protest, wanting to fight, but then she saw the pain in his eyes, so she dropped her gaze and let him push her over the pillows.
This was it, he had punished her once, and now he would whip her on top of that, and then probably ship her off. She had really done it this time, he would never forgive her.
She wept into the bed. He brought the strap down on her backside and she squealed at the impact. He had not even started with his hand. The strap ignited a fire on her skin and her feet danced beneath her.
"Please," she sobbed out, not knowing what she begged for. Him to stop, or whip her harder. She wanted the heaviness on her heart to be released, she needed him to forgive her.
She grabbed the blanket beneath her with both hands, hanging on so she did not put her hands behind her.
He brought the strap down again, catching the tops of her thighs. She gasped and pleaded, "Leo."
She needed to hear his voice, he was silent and angry. She wanted to know he was there.
He snapped the leather down again and she jumped on the impact, not knowing how much longer she could hold herself down. Why did he not even put his hand on her back?
She was sure she would die.
Emmaline Lawford, the youngest daughter of an English Marquess, is intended to marry. Though to whom might be up for debate. Her older brother, Samuel, has his sights set on marrying her off to a Duke. Emmaline finally accepts her fate, until a breach in etiquette finds her back in the arms of the man she truly loves.
Leo Colston is stunned when Emmaline is thrust back into his life. He had resigned himself to the fact that he would never marry the woman he loved. Now they are taking hasty wedding vows and being urged to move to America, where they can leave the talk of scandal behind them.
Emma and Leo realize settling into marriage is not going to be as smooth sailing as they thought. As they try to work out their differences and get used to living in close quarters Emmaline finds herself in trouble with her new husband on more than one occasion. Leo's favorite way to end an argument is to take his lady over his knee and spank her bare bottom until she submits. Emma thinks he should just give in to her womanly charms. Who will win this battle of wills?
Emmaline's Groom is a stand alone book, but is also the first book in The Ravenswood Manor series.
This book includes spankings, graphic sex, anal play, and more. If any of this subject matter offends you, please do not purchase this book.
