I am currently, furiously, obsessively working on the yet to be titled second book of The Ravenswood Manor Series. The first book is Emmaline's Groom. So I thought I would share a little bit of that today since Leo and Emmaline also make appearances in the the second book as well, and I am quite fond of them.
At this point in time Leo is angry with Emmaline for running off and getting swept up in some backroom poker game at a pub (she really didn't mean to). She isn't taking him seriously and has just told him that she had weighed her options and took the chance that he would spank her anyway (sometimes she doesn't know when to stop talking).
She looked at him questioningly but wisely did not speak. He ran his fingers through his hair, tugging in frustration. He was sick with the thought that something could have happened to her. He was furious that she did not consider her safety at all.
"Undress." He barked the order at her.
Her eyes went wide, but she slowly moved to obey. She dropped her eyes to the floor, but he knew it was an act--she tried to act submissive now because she feared further punishment.
Once her clothes were folded neatly at the end of the bed he beckoned her forward.
She covered her breasts with her hands and would not meet his eyes.
"I am glad your little escapade was worth any spanking I would give you. I am happy you take the punishments I give you so seriously."
At the anger in his voice she looked up to meet his eyes, tears filling hers.
He picked up the bar of soap that lay beside their water basin. It was still quite large as a new one had been supplied in their room when they got there.
He held it up to her lips. "Open," he snapped at her.
She pursed her lips together and shook her head.
"Maybe you will think twice about the punishments I give you. If you want to act like a child I will give you a child's punishment. A naughty little girl who does not know when to mind her tongue should get her mouth washed out with soap."
Tears tracked down her cheeks now. "Please," she whispered, "I have been awful. I know. I do not know what comes over me."
"Begging will not help you now." He caught her chin with his free hand.
She opened her lips the slightest bit and he used his fingers to pry her mouth open, her tears came faster as his anger grew, the grip he had on her jaw tightening.
He placed the soap in her mouth and removed his hand from her chin. He held the soap until she closed her lips around it. Her eyes pleaded with his the whole time, but he felt no remorse for her. He could not excuse her going against his wishes and exhibiting such risky behavior.
He stood assessing her for a minute. Her naked curves enticed him from the matter at hand, her full breasts heaving as she sucked in breath after breath through her nose. His eyes traveled down to the triangle of curls at the apex of her thighs, but he would not be distracted by her beauty, that would be doing them both a disservice.
"Hold your hands behind your back."
She jumped to comply, grasping one wrist with her opposite hand behind her. The position thrust her breasts out further still.
He guided her into the corner. His hand at her lower back, pushing her to stand where the two walls met.
"You stand here, do not move your arms and keep that soap in your mouth until I say you can take it out."
She sniffled, her nose running and mixing with the tears running down her face. But she nodded that she understood.
He walked back to the bed. He promised not to punish her in anger and he was so angry right now. He worried he would really hurt her if he whipped her before he calmed down. He sat back trying to collect himself as she sniffled in the corner.
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.
