Welcome to the Saturday Spankings Blog hop! If you’re a reader who likes stories with a touch of corporal punishment, this is the hop for you. We welcome readers comments, in fact we hunger for them, so don’t be stingy when you’re visiting. Authors thrive on encouragement.
This week’s snippet comes from Lessons of Love once again. Cole is determined to tame his new bride, and this time he feels he’s succeeded, but only time will tell.
“I have been far too lenient. If I had punished you soundly last night this wouldn’t be necessary. You … are … to … remember … how … much … this … hurts … the … next … time … you … wish … to … be … disrespectful.” Each word was punctuated with a fall of his hand, and when he finally stopped, Jolie was sobbing and laying limp on his lap. He ran his hand gently over her hot skin, pleased with the crimson color of her cheeks, feeling quite certain he’d made his point. She would remember to hold her tongue every time she sat down today.
Cole continued to caress her tortured flesh as her sobs ceased. He slipped his hand between her cheeks and ran his fingers up and down, up and down, over and over, gently stroking the innermost part of her body, nudging her legs further apart, brushing his fingers over the delicate skin.
In 1842 Louisiana, Jolie Dupree lives an oppressive life ruled by her strict and unloving stepfather. She has the luxuries of plantation life, but feels suffocated under his watchful eye. Fate brings an abrupt change in the form of Cole Jameson, a man full of wealth but short on acceptance into society. He needs the cloak of respectability to hide behind, and silence the rumors of girls gone missing while in his company. His business of selling genteel women to rich men with unsavory tastes, must not be discovered.
When he comes upon the lovely Jolie bathing in a secluded glen, he sees in her the answer to his problem. A young bride with an old family name will provide an aura of propriety. She is a girl from a suitable family, but also one who is not loved. She’s perfect for his scheme. He carries her home, bound, wet, and almost bare, with a story of saved virtue, and is granted her hand in marriage.
Cole is a man who has never loved and has no plans to start. He doesn’t give a care for the women whose lives he shatters, but Jolie isn’t just any woman. Her beauty bewitches him even as her stubborn will defies him time after time. He weds her with plans to make her an ornament on his arm and a slave in his bed. He will teach her how to please a man with a hard hand and an unfeeling heart.
Will Cole be able to keep his cold heart and continue with his business of white slavery, treating his new wife as cruelly as he does all his captives? Or will Jolie’s fiery spirit and beauty break through the ice that surrounds his heart and put an end to his cruel ways?
