Last week I shared the beginning of a spanking – here’s the end of it.
The last whack met the crease of her thighs and she yelped, having correctly anticipated he’d given her the final blow with a measure of force. Somehow, she’d survived the tawse.
“Four. Good lass.”
She lay still, relaxing her grip on the table. What now? How could she convince him she could endure more than the wicked tawse? She’d so much more she could offer him, she realised. If this was a measure of her stamina, then she foresaw many other demanding acts she might endure for him. No, not endure, the term was inappropriate—she longed to submit to him.
If you want to know what happened in between then please take a look at The Highlander’s Mate, my latest release.
When Claire Armitage’s fiancé, Captain Felix Hughes, informs her that he must interrupt their courtship to travel to his estate in Scotland on urgent business, she is distraught. Refusing to wait patiently for his return as he instructed, she instead journeys to the highlands on her own to join him, but upon her arrival she quickly discovers that he will not tolerate such reckless behaviour.
Resolved to demonstrate to his future bride that disobedience will have consequences, Felix takes Claire over his knee for a thorough spanking on her bare bottom. But chastising her in such a fashion awakens desires in him that are too powerful to control, and to protect her innocence he attempts to send her back home to England until he can make her his wife.
Claire cannot be dissuaded from returning once more to Felix’s side, however, even if it means submitting to any punishment he sees fit and then surrendering completely to his lustful dominance. But when she learns the true reason for his visit to the ancient home of his family, and sees with her own eyes that Felix is much more than an ordinary laird, will Claire still yearn for him to claim her?
Publisher’s Note: The Highlander’s Mate is a stand-alone sequel to His Lordship’s Mate. It includes spankings and sexual scenes. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.
Oh my goodness! This book was so erotic and hot I had to sit under a fan to read it. This marvelous tale had a well written storyline with many unexpected twists and turns as well as surprising secrets. The sex was explicit and written tastefully. There were elements of BDSM, anal play, spanking and paranormal situations. Some characters from an earlier book returned and all the characters feelings and emotions were delved into. There was some witty dialogue and I throughly enjoyed this delightful book.
I’ll not be going into the book synopsis in this review, as this is available in the book description.
I’ve not read the other book in this series (or this author previously) and experienced no issues or pieces of confusion. It truly is a stand alone title, with enough details of secondary characters to peak my interest on the other books, but not enough to frustrate or to take away from my enjoyment. I will be looking into this series further and this author’s catalog.
I found the H and h to be well rounded, relatable characters and the storyline to be compelling with the actions and driving “instinct” of the H very interesting. I’ve read many shifter titles (not all), and I found this character detail to be very unique. The heat level was perfect for the story -and for me.
The authors’ writing was polished, the story well thought out and plotted and with top notch editing, making for a great reading experience. I very much recommend this title.
