Verbal Warnings- Lectured and Spanked, Dungeon Crawl

I like a good verbal chastisement, a verbal warning, a lecture. It gets me going. It can all be a part of the spanking process. 

Today V is for Verbal-- be it a verbal chastisement or a verbal warning that you are pushing too far. Either or both may precede a spanking.

In this scene Wesley is taking Lena to task for not taking care of herself. She gets a little lecture before she gets her punishment.

"I missed breakfast, Wesley, I did not drink poison. You make it sound like I was trying to do something to harm myself."

"No, that is precisely it. I know it was not on purpose. But how many times this week did you forget to eat?"

Her face flushed and she shook her head.

"Here is the answer, once is one time too many. I know for a fact that it was at least four times, and that was on the days I asked you."

"I will try harder."

"Yes, you will try harder. Because your welfare is not something I will bend on." He crossed the room to stand in front of her and took her face in his hands. "What would I do if something happened to you?"

Her eyes glimmered with unshed tears. "I do not mean to worry you."

"I will always worry, I will always care." He rubbed his thumb over the smooth skin of her cheek and she closed her eyes and leaned into his hand.

"Please, do not be angry," she whispered.

"I am not angry. I am upset."

She opened her eyes and looked back at him. "Are you going to spank me?"


"For feeling faint in the park? That does not seem fair." Lena was closer to whining than he had ever heard before.

"You will remember to eat and take proper care of yourself. I would hope this would be the last time we must have this conversation. Otherwise you will not be comfortable riding your bicycle very often."

"But, I already said I am sorry and I will try harder. What more can I do?"

Wesley crossed to the desk and pulled out the chair, bringing it far enough from any furniture she could kick. He sat down and beckoned her forward.

She took tentative steps, taking her time crossing the room to get to him. 

Once she stood in front of him she held out the spoon she had hidden behind her back. She offered it up but would not meet his eyes.

He took it from her and placed it on the floor beside him. He put his hands on her hips and turned her so he could reach the buttons at the back of her dress.

Lena Trimble should be experiencing the happiest time in her life. She is in love with the most wonderful man she has ever met, they have a beautiful baby together, and they are starting a new life in a new country. But Lena feels like she is living a lie. Their child was conceived out of wedlock and she is still embroiled in a divorce from a horrible man who never loved her but was only after her money.
Wesley Lawford feels like the luckiest man alive. He finally has Lena all to himself and he is trying to build a new life with her and their child. But as Lena's divorce drags on, her fears of what others think have her retreating from the world, and worse, closing herself off to him. Afraid of losing Lena as she continues secluding herself, Wesley knows he must be firm with his future wife and Lena soon finds herself over Wesley's knee for a hard bare-bottom spanking. Will a firm hand and loving domestic discipline bring back the woman he loves? Will simply loving Lena be enough to keep them together?
Loving Lena is the second in the Ravenswood Manor series. The book is a Victorian romance set during the beginning of America's Bicycle Craze, in 1890's Philadelphia. Although each book can be read alone, characters from the first book in the series, Emmaline's Groom, are referenced in Loving Lena.

  1. You know these are all key words, right? Taking Lena to task...chastising...spanking...bend over...wait, I'm getting ahead of myself! :)

  2. Very nice! I agree with Natasha it had me going waaaaay too early this morning. Lol

  3. The lecture leading up to the spanking can be as titilating as the spanking itself.

  4. If someone lectures me they're liable to get some eye-rolling in response. Lol.

    Interesting that your heroine is the one with the money. I like that set up. :)

  5. The chastiment get you in the right frame of mind as your body starts the fight or flight mechanism. I can feel the tingles start from here already. LOL
    Loved the excerpt look forward to reading.
