I’m delighted to have Renee Rose visit today with her latest book, Humbled :). Historical fiction *and* spanking. What could be better?
Hi Liv! Thank you so much for hosting me today on your blog. I’m out pimping my new spanking romance Humbled, which is about a peasant who rescues and tames a young aristocrat during the French Revolution. The beginning of their relationship is a bit rocky, as he insists she obey him if she wants his assistance, backing up his authority with some bare bottomed spankings. As they go along, she becomes more amenable to accepting his authority. Here’s one of their negotiations…
“Forgive me my selfishness.”
“I believe I promised you a spanking for it,” he said, the deep rich notes of his voice igniting a flame of desire in her core.
“Did you?” she said, as if she had forgotten.
“But I might opt for teaching a different sort of lesson.”
Her breath quickened. “What sort of lesson?” she whispered.
“Remember how I told you I would take my wife? Any way I like?”
She stepped against his hard form, tipping her head back. “Yes,” she said breathlessly.
“Get down on your knees.”
She hesitated. “My knees?”
“You heard me. On your knees.”
She saw the challenge in his expression, and though her pride resisted the order, some other part of her wanted to know what came next. She lowered herself to her hands and knees.
“No, not your hands, just your knees,” he said, helping her to erect her torso.
She found herself facing the crotch of his trousers and suddenly understood his intent, lifting her eyes to Jean-Claude with slight alarm.
He smiled and stroked her cheek with his thumb.
Sentenced to die at age eleven for stealing a pig, Jean-Claude receives an unexpected reprieve when a young aristocrat girl takes the blame instead. When the mobs of the French Revolution fall upon her château years later, Jean-Claude knows he must save her and repay his debt, but as they begin their long flight to safety he makes it clear he is not her servant and he will deal firmly with any disobedience. Though he initially intends to send her off by ship, the beautiful, feisty Corinne inspires a fierce protectiveness in Jean-Claude that makes it hard to say goodbye.
Corinne is alternately infuriated and attracted to the handsome peasant who has no qualms about turning her over his knee and spanking her bare bottom when she steps out of line. When he ends up joining her on a ship to New Orleans, their futures become inextricably intertwined, but can a common-born blacksmith and the daughter of a lord find enough common ground to make a permanent match?
