#TickleMePink – Etta Stark

Today’s the day for turning a few cheeks pink – which cheeks will depend on my guest blogger and today it’s the wonderful Etta Stark sharing a spanking snippet from her new book.

Hi Jaye! It’s great to be here on your blog. Thanks so much for inviting me over to talk about my new book. Lord Westbrook’s Muse is a sweet, sexy, spanky romance set in Victorian England. The heroine, Cass, is a beautiful, vibrant and something of a rebel who turns the life of stuffy Lord Westbrook on its head after he meets her at his mother’s garden party.

When Cass feels that she has behaved badly at their first meeting, she suggests that Lord Westbrook punish her in order that they can put it behind them. Lord Westbrook finds the idea of punishing her too alluring to pass up and contrives to get them both alone so that he can administer her spanking.

Their relationship soon develops into something far more serious than either of them were expecting until Cass’s mysterious past catches up with her and causes problems for them both.

Before all that happens though, Lord Westbrook needs to give Cass her very first spanking.


“Bend over the end of the bed so that your arms and head are resting on the bed.”

Cass did as she was told. She leant over the footboard at the end of the bed. Her bottom was pushed high into the air, as she rested her arms on the counterpane and laid her head to one side. Her position ensured that she could only see the bedroom wall. Lord Westbrook was outside of her field of vision entirely.

She felt – rather than heard – his heavy footsteps as he approached the bed. He took hold of her dress and flipped her skirt up so that her entire lower back half was exposed to view. All that remained to preserve her modesty were her drawers. She did not have the protection of those for more than a few moments as Lord Westbrook tugged them down past her hips. They fell to the floor and pooled at her feet.

How much easier she had made life for him by dressing in such simplified clothing. If she had been dressed in a  more traditional manner it would no doubt taken a good deal longer to get at her bottom, as he would have to negotiate through layers of petticoats, under-petticoats and corset covers.

As it was he had rendered her completely exposed with barely any effort at all on his part. If she had any concerns about preserving her honour, she supposed that now would be the time to voice them. She was rapidly approaching the point of no return. In fact, she thought, it may be too late even now. If anyone happened upon them now and saw her bent over the bed with her bottom on display like this, her reputation would be completely destroyed.

Of course, there was no reason why they should be disturbed. They were on Lord Westbrook’s land and he held the key to the house. Besides, she chided herself, she had decided not to worry about her reputation any more.

Lord Westbrook tenderly stroked her bottom with his hand. She was surprised by the gentleness of the gesture. The sharp slap that followed it, however, was anything but gentle.

More swats followed, each one causing her to emit a little squeak of protest as Lord Westbrook’s hand collided with her bottom. He covered the surface of her bottom thoroughly, moving from one cheek to the other as he continued a steady barrage of swift hard spanks. Cass could feel the heat in her backside increasing with each blow. She wanted to move her hands to shield her bottom from the stinging smacks. Or to leap up from her position over the bed and hop around the room clutching her throbbing bottom.  It was taking every ounce of her willpower not to do so.

She guessed that moving from her position would not be permitted and remained in place until Lord Westbrook had finished administering the series of sharp, hard swats to her posterior.

The truth of it was, for all the pain, she did feel better. She had behaved horribly towards Lord Westbrook earlier. She had known he didn’t want to participate in that stupid game of ‘Cockfighting’ but she had made him do it by dragging him across the lawn like that. She had thought he would enjoy himself. She hadn’t expected the other participants to tease him in the way they had. She hadn’t fully appreciated how embarrassed Lord Westbrook would be by the whole thing.

By accepting her punishment, she hoped she had shown Lord Westbrook how truly sorry she was. It wasn’t just her assuaged guilt that was making her feel better. She was aware of an extraordinary feeling of warmth emanating from her centre and suffusing her with the need to be touched in her most intimate places. The feeling itself was not totally unfamiliar. Alone in her bedroom over many evenings, she had taught herself the way to use her fingers to increase such a feeling and then expand her pleasure until she was completely satisfied.

She had never had this feeling brought on by someone else’s touch before. And she had never felt it as strongly as she felt it right now. It was extraordinary given that the only touch she had received from Lord Westbrook was the spanking that he had administered.

Blushing Books

Barnes & Noble


Lord Robert Westbrook’s life of responsibility and social obligations is turned on its head when he meets Cass, a beautiful and idiosyncratic woman at his mother’s garden party. Cass is a staunch supporter of women’s rights as well as an advocate of dress reform, rejecting the restrictive fashions of the nineteenth century.

In fact, Cass’s rebellion isn’t limited to her dress sense. She is also determined to experience the excitement and passion of a sexual liaison. Lord Westbrook, she has decided, is the very man she wants to seduce her. Meanwhile Lord Westbrook has determined that Cass requires some stern discipline.

The couple’s passionate and fiery romance breaks every rule of Victorian decency and kindles a love that neither Cass nor Robert were prepared for. However, when Cass’s secret past finally catches up with her, it seems that the couple’s happiness might be doomed forever.

Thank you to Etta for sharing Cass’s first spanking and her first blush of pink cheeks!

Wishing Etta all success with her new book and I hope you will follow the buy links.
