#WipItUp – Making Mischief

Welcome to the Work in Progress or in my case very close to publishing blog hop, if only I could tell you the exact time it might appear – it could be anytime from today depending on Amazon.

Continuing my WiP theme of making a fuss during a spanking, here is a little more on the story of Hester and Daniel, which is set during the English Civil War. Hester can no longer hide her deepening feelings towards Daniel, however, they are supposed to be enemies, so she has an idea and now you will see why she must always make fuss during her spankings!


“But, still, I must appear what I am not.”

“How mean you?” His eyebrows furrowed.

“To dismiss any suspicions, I shall continue to make mischief. Most unproductive mischief. The worst spy that the King has ever employed.”

Daniel laughed at her description. “You do realise I will have to catch you and punish you?”

“I’m hoping you will, sir. Remember, how you asked me to make a fuss when you first punished me?”

“It served an important purpose. I didn’t want your servants to consider me a weak man.”

“You are not weak. You are decent and fair. However, I shall have to make such a commotion. You must appear the tyrant and have my servants fill with sympathy for my plight while your loyal soldiers see you as the master of this house. Drag me screaming to this room and I shall wail terribly.”

“Paint me a bully?” He rubbed the bristles on his chin. “I’m not convinced this is a good idea.”

“We must.” She pressed her hands into his chest and felt his excited beats. Something about what she suggested enticed him regardless of the pensive expression on his face.

“I don’t wish to use you harshly.”

“My maid will suspect if I don’t have the marks of your hand. She will bathe me and see my pale cheeks.”

Daniel puffed his lips out. A slow smile sloped upwards on his face. “Methinks, lady, you would have me spank you.”

Hester felt a blush spread over her face, the heat bloomed along with her pounding heart. “No… it would be unseemly of me to expect you to… If I am to be appear defiant, then you must spank me as if I’d offended you. I will give you the justification and we will maintain a pretence. I shall make a fuss. Please, Daniel. Don’t you think it would be for the best? Hopefully, times will change. When there is peace, we can truly start afresh.”


inenemyhands_fullWhen the rest of her household flees the family estate during the English Civil War, Hester Cavell, a proud Royalist supporter, stays behind hoping to protect her home. Unfortunately for Hester, she quickly finds that she is no match for a troop of Parliamentarian dragoons, led by Captain Daniel Hasard. Once the dragoons take control of her house, Daniel lets Hester stay with her servants, but he warns her that he will punish her severely if she causes any trouble.

Despite Daniel’s warning, it isn’t long before Hester risks her safety and attempts to sabotage his troops, earning her a long, hard switching on her bare bottom. But as the weeks pass, she begins to realize that the man behind the enemy uniform is loving, intelligent, and kind, and she can’t help but grow more and more attracted to him. Daniel returns Hester’s affection, and while they remain enemies by day to protect her reputation, they soon become passionate lovers by night.

Not wanting the servants to guess at their games, Hester continues to make a pretence at mischief, and Daniel continues to punish her sternly. But when a servant at last finds out the truth of their relationship, will it bring an end to their newfound romance, or will Daniel cast aside politics and allegiances and ask for her hand in marriage?

Publisher’s Note: In Enemy Hands is an erotic novel that includes spankings, sexual scenes, anal play, elements of BDSM, and more. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.

  1. What a lovely cover. I’m happy to hear this is coming out soon. ♥
    I know they’re supposed to be enemies, but I can’t help but wonder if part of Hester’s plan isn’t just to get another spanking from this handsome man.

  2. Hi Jaye, can’t wait to read on and love the cover. Hester and Daniel’s plan sounds good, of course they should continue the spanking, just to make sure. 🙂 I wonder what excuse they might have once the civil war is over, though. 😀 Great scene, thank you for it!
