My apologies to my fellow Sat spankers-- the past week has been absolutely nuts for me and I still haven't read your contributions from last week. I'm traveling right now and won't be home till Monday, but then I will be sure to visit you all!
Today's teaser comes from my soon to be released Regency tentatively entitled Married to a Rake. In it, Phoebe has just fallen into a lake in an attempt to retrieve her glove. Lord Fenton retrieved his new wife and carried her to the carriage:
He pulled the curtains in the carriage and then plucked her from her seat and tossed her over his lap, throwing her wet skirts over her head.
She could scarcely breathe from the shock of it, and seeming to know this, the ties on her corset were loosened, just before the loudest slap she could possibly imagine resounded through the carriage.
The driver and horses surely heard it as well, because the carriage took off, bouncing along as Fenton's hand cracked down again on her sopping wet drawers. She squeezed her bottom, flinching from the sting.
“Teddy!” Wynn hissed. “Stop that!”
She could say nothing, herself, all speech had been shocked out of her. Another slap struck her wet bottom and then another, a burn beginning to set in as if she'd sat upon a stinging nettle.
Married to a Rake (coming soon!)
When Phoebe’s married sister Maud is caught with Lord Fenton, the notorious rake, Maud’s husband threatens to kill them both. Phoebe has no choice but to intercede, claiming that she was Lord Fenton’s lover, and forcing Lord Fenton to take her as his wife to avoid a scandal. Knowing full well an unscrupulous man like Fenton would never be faithful, she insists upon a marriage in name only, resolved to resist his charm and dominance,
Teddy never intended to take a wife, doubting his ability to stay faithful and not wishing to replicate his parent’s miserable existence. But when he’s forced to marry the lovely Phoebe Fletcher, he suddenly wants nothing more than to win the affection of his new bride. Just when it seems he might succeed, secrets from her past threaten to destroy their chance at happiness.
