Emmaline Lawford, the youngest daughter of an English Marquess, is intended to marry. Though to whom might be up for debate. Her older brother, Samuel, has his sights set on marrying her off to a Duke. Emmaline finally accepts her fate, until a breach in etiquette finds her back in the arms of the man she truly loves.
Leo Colston is stunned when Emmaline is thrust back into his life. He had resigned himself to the fact that he would never marry the woman he loved. Now they are taking hasty wedding vows and being urged to move to America, where they can leave the talk of scandal behind them.
Emma and Leo realize settling into marriage is not going to be as smooth sailing as they thought. As they try to work out their differences and get used to living in close quarters Emmaline finds herself in trouble with her new husband on more than one occasion. Leo’s favorite way to end an argument is to take his lady over his knee and spank her bare bottom until she submits. Emma thinks he should just give in to her womanly charms. Who will win this battle of wills?
Emmaline’s Groom is a stand alone book, but is also the first book in The Ravenswood Manor series.
This book includes spankings, graphic sex, and anal play, and more. If any of this subject matter offends you, please do not purchase this book.
Well, spank me and call me Suzy.
Emma is a headstrong and beautiful young woman, who happens to be the daughter of an English Marquess. The youngest of 4 siblings, her brother is looking after her while her father is away on business. Leo falls in love with Emma, and he’s also a strong-willed and virile young man. There’s one big, glaring problem, though – he’s a servant in the household and that is a big no-no. But neither one of them was ever that into rule following…
This is a spanking story – a tale of forbidden love and some bare bottom spanking that I found a fun and interesting read. I loved Leo, and he’s just what Emma needs. But with Emma’s brother and father planning to wed her off to a noble man, is there anywhere for these two lovers to go? I loved that part of the story!
The plot to this story went a lot farther than I originally thought it would. This story takes us all the way to America and it’s actually a story that goes a lot deeper than I would have imagined. But at its center, this is really just a story about forbidden love and who doesn’t love that?? I also found I was way more into the spanking aspect of the story than I thought, and that’s a new one for me!
Overall, I found I really enjoyed this book. Great plot, great characters, great spanking
“Sometimes even when I have the best intentions,” she began slowly again, “even when I am trying very hard to stay out of trouble, I cannot.”
He looked back at her, not knowing the correct response. Should he agree with her, seemingly putting her down at the same time?
She saved him from answering because she continued speaking, “Maybe you could give me an incentive of sorts.” Her face flamed with color and he quirked an eyebrow at her. She placed her hands over her face, hiding herself from him.
His face split into a grin as he realized what she asked. He tugged at her hands, pulling them down away from her face, but she snapped her eyes shut to keep from looking at him, “My sweet Emmaline, are you asking me to punish you before you have even done anything?”
Her eyes flew back open and she began to look panicked, “No! Not a punishment.” She paused as she searched for her next words. “But maybe a reminder? Something to keep me from earning a punishment?”
To say he was shocked would have been an understatement. He could not help but wonder what went on in her mind. Did she sometimes daydream and have the same fantasies he had?
“You are asking me to spank you, though?” She looked away from him as he asked his question. “I just want to be clear, you want me to spank you to remind you that you will be punished if you do not behave?”
She shrugged her shoulders, her face as red as a ripe apple. He wondered if it would be warm to the touch. He knew he should not press her further, but he could not help wanting to hear her say the words.
“Emma, is that what you want?” She looked back up at him, and her lip quivered. “Tell me,” he whispered down to her.
“Yes.” Her voice was barely audible. “Please spank me, Leo.”
He rushed to comply before she changed her mind, he pulled them both up, placing himself on the edge of the bed. He started to pull her up, to place her in front of him, when her words starting coming out in a rush.
“But not a punishment, Leo.” She looked at him hesitantly. “Not too hard, either.”
“Are you giving me directions now?”
“Yes, no!” She dropped her gaze, “I do not know.”
He pulled her to stand between his legs. He drew her in close, looking up at her from where he was seated.
“I think this is an excellent idea.”
She finally looked back at him and smiled.
“I think you were brave to ask me.”
She placed her hands on his shoulders and looked back at him with more confidence than before.
“You are right, this is not a punishment. But maybe if you remember the sting of my hand on your backside you will think twice before you find yourself in trouble.” He circled his arms around her waist as he felt her shiver at his words.
Casey McKay enjoys fighting the boredom of her soul crushing day job by being a spanking fiction writer by night. Writing books she would like to read- not surprisingly they all become romance novels, with lots of spanking. She likes a good romance, with a little bit of comedy, a happy ending, and of course some spanking.
