Hopefully you have some time to get some reading done as well! I know I've been trying to.
I am still sharing snippets from His Rebellious Queen. This part picks up right where I left off last week. Lyra has just received a spanking from her stern Alpha-warrior husdand Astor. She openly defied him and then started an argument in public. He was not amused.
She hopped from foot to foot and went to throw her hands back behind her, but he caught them. “No rubbing, if I take the time to discipline you, you will not rub away the results.”
He almost expected more defiance but she lowered her eyes and bit her lip. He stood, pulling the leggings back up as he rose. Slipping his hands under her skirt he pulled them up over her hips and then cupped her backside. Through the thin material he could feel the warmth from her spanking against his hands.
She buried her face in his chest as he held her close. He dropped a kiss on the top of her head, surprised at how pleased he felt that she had not reacted in anger.
Lyra didn't expect her arranged marriage to be easy. But she also didn't think it was going to be so hard. Moving to a distant planet to become queen was one thing. Learning to take orders from her Alpha, warrior husband was quite another.
Astor knew from the moment he was appointed king there would be no other woman for him. Fulfilling a promise from his past to protect and keep her safe, he claims Lyra as his wife and queen. When she routinely skirts the rules and defies his orders, he realizes he will need to take his feisty wife in hand in the way the Cassians have done for centuries.
But when a plot for revolution follows the new queen and the secrets they're both keeping become exposed, will Astor be able to convince his rebellious queen that they are on the same side or will Lyra's trust come too little too late?
His Rebellious Queen is a sci fi romance about love, trust, and starting over.
