By Corinne Alexander
Set in medieval times, Anna is “ruined” one night when a group of men invade her village. In this era a young woman is expected to be pure to be wed. Anna’s parents’ show their disappointment by ostracizing the poor young woman. She is treated like a slave in her own home, and even beaten by her cruel mother.
One day she is drugged and abducted by a strong, authoritative man, known only as Sir William. He takes her from her village, and explains to her that it is no worse fate to be abducted, than it is to remain in a village that doesn’t want her.
Anna is feisty, and opinionated, smart, beautiful and quick to speak her mind. She even dismisses one of Sir William’s orders, with her arms defiantly crossed over her chest as she tells him that she does not take orders. (I loved that small scene!) A good trait in present time, but not so much in the medieval times this story was presented in.
Sir William promises to protect her from men with “evil intent” toward her. (She really is a beautiful woman, once cleaned up and dressed in proper clothes, instead of dirty rags). And he also promises to punish her for her obstinacy, which he does. He has no problem taking the young woman over his knee and spanking her bare bottom.
The chemistry between them grows as the story progresses. Even though Sir William won’t answer her questions, where he is from, why does he want her, what is going to do with her…, he takes very good care of her protecting her, and trying to teach her how to act like a lady.
Anna is confused by all the new attention she receives once outside her village. She has never been called beautiful, has never really spoken to anyone except her younger sister, and cannot understand the growing need building in her. She is attracted to Sir William, but doesn’t understand how to deal with this attraction, or how to act properly. And the poor woman still suffers the “scars” from her past.
Unfortunately, these scars are opened up quickly when she discovers whom has paid so handsomely for her capture. Her past threatens to swallow her alive, except for the care from Sir William. If only he would accept her as his own. But that seems too much to hope for, for the distraught woman, who is now a prisoner, dressed in beautiful gowns, and living a new lavish life.
One of the big themes in the book is the matter of trust. Sir William keeps telling Anna to trust him. But because of her past, and the new position she is in, she finds it hard to do so. Sir William is a good man who is strong, honorable, and passionate. It just takes a while for Anna to see this, and for the reader to really get to know his motives. Are his motives pure? Is he trustworthy? These are questions that continue throughout the story.
I won’t give away the ending, but I was very pleased with the HEA ending.
The characters were likable and I liked their progression. However I was confused at different points throughout the story. It almost seemed a little rushed at times. While I liked this story a lot, and enjoyed the characters, I would have liked to have gotten more questions answered. I think that Becoming a Lady had tremendous potential as a great medieval spanking romance. If the author had cleaned up a few of the confusing scenes, it would have been even better.
Overall, though, it was a good story, with a nice overall plot, and likable characters.
Becca, the heroine of Renee Rose’s newest release, Safe In His Arms, suffers from asthma. Although I do not have that condition, this book certainly left me gasping for air on several occasions.
Seven years ago Becca and Zac shared a sexy spanky weekend after hooking up at a wedding. A few months later, a pregnant Becca learned that Zac had been killed in action.
Becca moves on with her life, and aside from a few unusual occurrences like winning a car and being able to rent a three bedroom apartment for the price of a studio, all seems normal.
Normal disappears the day she comes home and finds Zac, the man she thought was dead, fighting to the death with her son’s nanny. Maybe Zac had issues with her allowing his son to have too much sugar cereal. Or maybe the nanny was really an assassin out to get Becca.
Becca, a protective mama bear, now has to learn to deal with the sudden appearance of a man she thought was dead. For all intents and purposes, he has no existence and she cannot predict or know when, or if, he will ever return. She wants to protect her son from whatever danger has brought Zac back into their lives and she also needs to protect her heart from the agony of loving a man who disappears for weeks at a time with no guarantee that he will still be alive, or return, in the future.
This is Renee’s first contemporary spanking story and I sure hope she writes more. I’d even like to see a sequel to this book. As always, it was sexy and the spankings were well described and emotional. Becca is a lovely combination of independent and defiant, yet naturally craving submission.
Safe In His Arms is an erotic and exciting story with engaging characters and realistic internal and external conflict. While Becca was shocked and happy to see Zac, she was also pissed. Where had he been for the last seven years and where did he get off just showing up in her life and playing daddy to her son? I thought this was an interesting conflict to address, particularly in the context of an absentee father who seemed to have a good explanation for his absence and who had done what he could to care for his little family, even if they didn’t know it. But does that justify endangering them? Popping in and out of their lives in the dark of night?
I thought this conflict was handled realistically and I liked that. If Becca had said “Oh, goody. Daddy’s home.” And then acted like they were a happy little family, I would not have thought much of her, but instead, I could understand her yearning for Zac combined with her hesitance to get any more involved.
One memorable scene involved long distance dominance. From some mystery location Zac instructs Becca to give herself a virtual punishment while he watches via video cam. I won’t share the details here because I want you to be surprised, but let’s just say you won’t look at your medicine cabinet the same way again.
For an exciting ride, inside the bedroom and out, I wholeheartedly recommend Safe In His Arms.

p>Thanks so much for letting me borrow your readers, Spanking Romance Reviews! Under the name Emily Tilton I write a hybrid spanking/BDSM project that I call EXPLORATIONS. It”s kind of a serial, and kind of a series, and kind of a chunked-out novel (think Dickens! ;)).
Most of EXPLORATIONS (so far, at least) concerns the early married life of a fantasy version of me and my husband, called fantasy-Emily and fantasy-Charles. The story begins with their wedding-night, and so far has carried them through to the early months of their marriage.
Two things make EXPLORATIONS unique, in my own view.
1. Me, in italics, telling the story of telling the story. Most importantly, because the story in Roman type is an elaboration of my darkest BDSM fantasies, I”m talking about how I react to these fantasies, and meditating on the relationship of fantasy to reality. My blog is an extension of that project.
2. In the course of elaborating those fantasies, fantasy-Emily and fantasy-Charles start to uncover another, older story–the story of Prophettown and (eventually) the story of their own ancestors, and how the two are related. This will eventually send them on a frankly outlandish journey (no more outlandish than sexy vampires and werewolves, mind you) of fantasy-self-discovery that I venture to say has no parallel in erotic literature.
Also, though this is hardly unique, the actual books of the series are nearly 100% pure BDSM, though expressed in varied ways, including, in the Prophettown books, some faux-scriptural language that I find fun and hot, but which I suspect readers may hate. The jury”s still out on that one.
Last week I released a book called Emily, Victorian Bride, that takes the exploration in a new direction: fantasy-me is given a spanking narrative by her great-great-grandmother that, besides giving me the chance to write the kind of Victorian BDSM I”ve always loved, will also let me bring the story of fantasy-Emily to an exciting climax.
The process of writing that narrative, however, in the “real” narrative of my BDSM relationship with my real Charles, brought me to the tease I want to offer you here on Spanking Romance Reviews. This is from the middle of a post I”ll put up on my own blog tomorrow, called “Please unfasten your jeans.” It concerns the training regime we came up with to realize some of my fiction in our own household.
“Just as I thought,” Charles said. “I don”t suppose I should have expected regulation undergarments under your jeans, when you flouted my rules under your shirt, should I? Please lower your jeans to just above your knees.”
He had noticed that I had chosen the tight ones, and now he was exploiting it. When I had carried out his request, my eyes on the floor and my face hot both with shame and arousal, I was a picture of wantonness-in-training: flaming scarlet sexy lingerie, knees bound by slutty tight jeans. Charles stood. He had my paddle in his right hand, I saw now. Not good (but also wonderful).
“Miss Tilton,” Charles said. “You have been found self-evidently guilty of wearing this provocative underwear. Because you are new to Smith”s, you will be punished with the paddle instead of the cane.”
Will. Be. Punished. Three simple words that could make my heart quail and my cunt flow. No escape: I was in training now, and I would be punished with the paddle in a few moments.
About Emily Tilton
I, Emily Tilton, if I exist, am a human rights lawyer who resides in Greenwich, CT. It”s more likely that I”m actually someone else, who wishes she were as free to play out her real fantasies as Emily Tilton is.
EXPLORATIONS (click for the “101” explanation!) is a narrative version of my nearly lifelong quest to reconcile my submissive erotic orientation with my ethics. In this profile, as in the books of EXPLORATIONS themselves, when I”m writing in italics, I”m writing as the “real” me–35 year old lawyer Emily.
Over the many years since I became aware of my sometimes unbearable craving for ravishment, spanking, and above all anal domination, I have tried to come to terms with that craving in more ways than I can count. The first of the ways was by reading, voraciously, every piece of good BDSM erotica (and of course also a ton of bad BDSM erotica) I could find.
Eventually, I read Story of O. As is reflected throughout EXPLORATIONS, it changed my life, though the change has been gradual, and continues to this day. The idea that other women might share the lusts I have by turns been ashamed of and defiantly proud of, that a woman like the real Pauline Réage might write so beautifully of those lusts, and work them out so thoroughly and even pitilessly on a character, put Réage”s famous pencil in my right hand. Or, to put it in the terms of EXPLORATIONS, it put my left hand on the keyboard of my laptop and my right hand in my lap, if you know what I mean. I started to write spanking stories.
People (well, Spankos) spank for lots of reasons… there’s the role-play spanking, sensual spanking, discipline spanking and the maintenance spanking. Maintenance spanking is more often seen in a Domestic Discipline relationship and is the most likely to also be categorized as a cathartic spanking. They happen fairly regularly and don’t need a defined reason.
What sets them apart from the others? Cathartic spankings achieve the result of not only a red bottom but also a deep, healing sobbing. Have you ever heard that saying “Everyone needs a good cry”? Well, here’s where it can be achieved. The tears during a cathartic spanking are healing, bringing about a focus and clarity. They are like a spiritual cleansing and can bring about a wonderfully intimate moment with your partner. Of course, they are, more often than not, intertwined with sexual feelings and sensuality. But hey, who would complain about that?
Spanking, in general, is an emotionally intense kink. On the very surface, adult spanking is all about the heat. Yet on a deeper level, the spanking can heal wounds, comfort and restore the intimacy between a couple. It’s that healing that makes a spanking cathartic.
In the latest book in my paranormal romance series, Frozen Fury, the heroine is burdened with the soul sin of Anger. On the advice of a friend who practices Domestic Discipline, her mate uses spanking as a release for her anger until they can remove the sin forever through their mated bond ritual. Here’s a sexy little excerpt to well, you know, enjoy…
Gage kneeled in front of her on one knee and took her hand. “Let me help.” His words were simple but immediately unloaded the burden she carried. Amelia was awed by this large Valendite Breed kneeling before her. His dark brown hair was cropped short and his handsome face defined with deep ridges along his cheekbones. Gage was pure masculine beauty, but she wouldn’t tell him that.
Amelia simply nodded. Maybe he actually could help her. He kissed her knuckles and raised himself to sit beside her. She didn’t give it a second thought when he patted his knee, but simply moved to sit on his lap and seek comfort. Then, to her surprise, she screeched when he tugged her across his lap as if she were a child to be disciplined.
With a giggle, Amelia asked, “What are you doing?” She kicked out her feet and held onto Gage for balance. He must be playing with her, trying to help her to relax away from her anger.
“You see, I’ve been told a spanking is cathartic, a means for releasing pent up energy. In your case, that’s anger. So I thought we’d give it a try.” Gage was very matter-of-fact about what he was doing, but since he wasn’t playful, Amelia’s anxiety soared.
“Give it a try? You intend to spank me?”
“Yep? How about ‘nope’?” Now Amelia was enraged. “How dare you think to do this to me? You have no right!”
“Oh, there’s where you’re wrong. I have every right. I’m your mate.” Amelia couldn’t see his grin, but she knew it was there. The grin he wore to say he owned the moment. And damn him, she knew he was right but she most certainly didn’t have to like it.
With her torso and legs dangling down from either side of his lap, Amelia was held firmly in place with no way to escape. She was truly at his mercy and that just made her angrier. How dare he do this?
A flush stole over her skin as Gage tugged up the ruffles of her maxi skirt. She pinched her eyes closed, waiting for his reaction when he found her tiny thong underneath. Amelia wasn’t disappointed by the inhalation of breath she heard from her mate. His hand ran over her naked ass under her skirt as the cool air nipped at her skin. She felt obscene with her skirt now around her waist and her ass bared with only her tiny scrap of a thong.
Gage rubbed along the cheeks of her ass until they felt warmer to the touch. Amelia felt her clit swell even as her bottom grew sensitive. The blood seemed to center in these two areas of her body and she couldn’t think straight. Her concentration was solely focused on her mate.
“I’d like to try this. I believe you do too but if you truly want me to stop, say so now. Right now, Amelia, is your only chance to say ‘stop’. It’s now or it’s never again,” Gage spoke with a voice of conviction that caused a shudder to pass down Amelia’s spine.
She didn’t make a sound.
Gage lifted his hand from her bottom. She was bereft of his touch for one second before she heard its descent and felt his palm strike her ass. He hadn’t held back much of his Breed strength. There was no gentleness. Gage spanked her in steady, heavy strokes. Goddess help her, tears sprung immediately to her eyes. Still, she held her tongue and refused to cry out. After at least a dozen, he stopped and softly rubbed her ass cheeks again. This time, his ministrations brought the sting to the surface in waves of heat and pinpricks of sensation. It wasn’t pleasant but neither was it unpleasant.
“You’re doing well, sweetheart, but you don’t need to hold back. Allow all of that emotion you hold inside to come out.” Gage spoke softly, coaxingly, but still Amelia held her cries inside.
The next series of slaps came in a rhythm and Amelia fell into the pattern with ease. It stung, but as she focused on the stinging, she realized the pain inside—the anger—wasn’t so strong anymore. She could take deep breaths without feeling weighted down in fury.
Her body was quivering. She couldn’t think beyond the constant sting of the spanking. Amelia raised her bottom towards Gage’s palm, instinctively seeking more. She craved more, needed the release this was providing her from the constant anger. She opened her mouth without thought and allowed the first of her cries to leave her. She let go one after another until her body shook with the sobbing.
“Good girl. Let it all out. This is what you needed, just this, just to be able to let it all go.” Gage spoke as he continued the rhythm.
Amelia did just as he said, crying softly now into his leg even as she began to feel his palm gentle on her bottom until he was massaging. She wiggled, but a single slap stopped her movement. She was too limp to move off him anyway. She relaxed into his hold and floated, not feeling anything. Content.
“You did so well. How do you feel?” Gage asked her as if she could actually think or speak. She honestly wasn’t certain she could do either in the moment.
“I-I don’t know. I feel relieved.” She also felt exposed and vulnerable but chose not to mention that. She wasn’t accustomed to any of these emotions and needed to consider them before she talked about them.
“That’s what I was going for. You see, a catharsis of sorts. I’d say I’ve successfully spanked the anger right out of you.” Gage chuckled and the infusion of his humor lightened the moment. Gage was still himself and she was still Amelia. Nothing had changed and yet, maybe everything had.
The seven Sinster sisters are entwined in a legacy originating back from the time of the Italian Wars in the 1500s. One by one, they’ll find their mates from the immortal Valendite Breeds and secure their place in history.
Amelia, a genetic physicist and the eldest Sinster sister, has devoted her adult life to determining the genetic anomaly of the Magdalena Circle women. The discovery means the women will no longer serve as the singular means for the Valendite Breed’s survival. However, in the wrong hands, the discovery takes on new meaning and puts their society at risk.
While investigating, Gage, a TEU weapons specialist for the Valendite Breed, accidentally shoots Amelia and then unknowingly bonds himself to her. Now with their enemies closing in around them, Amelia must fight against her soul sin to find the happiness she’s longed for. Everything shifts for the couple when Gage takes her in hand and convinces Amelia to trust in the prophecy to bring them together.

I can still remember the other half’s shock almost twenty years ago as I shyly said, “I’d really like you to smack my arse.”
I had been reading Fanny Hill and there was a really hot birching scene in it. I already knew spanking turned me on but for some reason that scene for some reason set me on fire. Or maybe I was just at the right age and maturity and sexual confidence to try it.
Bless his cotton socks he nearly fell out of his standing. He was standing by the bed beside me, I was tucked up under the covers, he was leaving for work, (he always started earlier than me) he leaned down to kiss me goodbye and he patted my behind gently (fortunately he was always an ass man). His face went pink, then purple and he managed to splutter out “What? Are you off your fecking head?” Twenty years later he’s a bigger spanko than I am! Only as a giver though.
We’re pleasure spankos though, we don’t do Domestic Discipline. We tried it on and off over the years but until he becomes infallible, I don’t think I could ever be properly receptive to it. And he prefers it that way too; I guess we just don’t have that Head of Household dynamics in our relationship. In spite of this I do think bossy spankings are sexier, so we have like a code, there are a couple of niggly things I do to annoy him that I have agreed to be punished for. Usually I do them on purpose because I want a real good session, but sometimes I forget and do them by accident…now they are totally the best, sexiest spankings ever, because I’m not expecting them and he notices what I’ve done, one look is enough, I melt. The butterflies flutter. I like it even better when I have to wait a while until the kids are out of the way because the anticipation really adds to the nervous excitement. I feel moisture between my legs.
And those words, go on upstairs and prepare…thump, thump, thump goes my heart, but it’s not fear, it’s adrenalin.
Oh and the waiting, bottom bare for him to come and administer the punishment. My senses become heightened. I wait. I hear my heart beat and my raspish breathing. Then his footstep on the tiles, then he runs upstairs and the cacophony of heart, pulse and breathing noises reaches a crescendo. I’m soaking wet by now. I’m wondering what he’ll use. I’m hoping it will be a hand spanking across his knee; that’s by far my favourite, it’s so intimate. And then he’s there by my side. Agh! I’m ready to explode.
He usually starts of lightly enough, oh it hurts but my pain threshold hasn’t peaked yet so it’s nicer to get a warm up. And the more he slaps the more my endorphins are released and then I want it harder, faster until I beg him to stop. He’ll keep going another short while. And then he’ll pause, and rub me soothingly. This is to see if I’ve really had enough, or just needed a break. And the closeness of that time is like nothing on earth, me and him. He’s tender and caring. He’s as turned on as I am.
“More?” He’ll ask and I’ll feel my whole nether regions tighten. Nine times out of ten, I do want more. If I hesitate at all in my answer, he’ll take that as a yes.
The pause has allowed the endorphins to flood my body, I’m soaking and swollen, my ass is on fire with the most delicious tingly sensation. Of course I want more. I’m high.
That’s what it is about spanking.

Sue Lyndon writes hot spanking romance and she has a free short story available on Amazon this weekend. Snatch it up, folks!
Amanda has always ignored the attraction she feels for her strict boss, Mr. Mizenov. He’s a bit mysterious and holds everyone at a distance, and she doubts she has a shot in the dark with him anyway. He begins to treat her differently though after she forgets her e-reader at work one evening, and she suspects it’s because he’s spied the titles of the spicy books she enjoys – particularly the book she’d had open at the time, Spanked and Dominated by the Boss. Yikes. Talk about embarrassing. Even worse, she’s a virtual kink-virgin in real life, and when Mr. Mizenov threatens to spank her if she’s a mere minute late for work, she has to make a choice. To be on time…or to be naughty?
Note: “Breaking His Rules” is a short story that contains scenes of spanking, medical fetish (temperature taking, oh my!), and other erotic content.
My Quick Review
Sue Lyndon knows how to ring my bell, and Breaking His Rules did it with aplomb. What submissive doesn’t have the fantasy about the hot boss bending you over the desk for a spanking? I know I do, and if I’d only had a boss like Ivan…. Mmm, mmm, this was a delicious delivery of fantasy fulfillment.

Such a pleasant surprise! Like opening up a present … and getting two!
The Grass Could Be Greener was a very fun, well written story that tackled a difficult topic- a wife swap. I wasn’t sure how the author was going to pull it off, but she did. The story was fantastic, and I loved it!
The two couples:
Joe and Sarah – Homeschooling family, and a male-led HOH relationship
Jeremy and Jamie – Professional family, and a marriage full of hurt and resentment
Journalist, Jamie Winter is looking for her next big story. She agrees to go on a reality show about wife swapping, in order to find that story. Jamie is strong, confident, and passionate about her job, sometimes forgetting about things like spending time with her husband or young daughters. She is a good woman, but she just hasn’t found that balance between career woman and mom / wife.
Sarah Wilson is happy as a stay at home mother, wife, and homeschooler. She has agreed to do the wife swap, because she thinks it will be a good experiment, and because it will bring in some much needed money for her family.
Both women are thrown into worlds almost opposite their own. Line drying laundry and homeschooling have taken the place of corporate world and a nanny.
This story is so well done, and so enjoyable.
I loved how the author explained the situation of sex right away. Since the show’s producers do not allow sex between “swapped” couples, this makes it easier to dive into this fantasy. The author makes it even easier to understand in a very early scene between Sarah and her husband, Joe. When Sarah asks if Joe will spank his “new” wife, he proceeds to show her the difference between a bottom warming over jeans, for a naughty stranger, and a very spicy and sensual bare bottom spanking for his real wife.
“You’re the only wife I will ever spank like this.”
Joe tells her as he spanks her and prepares her for their very intimate time together. This was absolutely delicious!
Both couples have faults, neither are perfect. One couple shelters their children from the outside world, and doesn’t give them the opportunity to build up trust and responsibility. The other couple gives their children everything money can buy, and spoil their children, doing everything for them.
It was so much fun watching each woman, placed into an environment so far out of her comfort zone, but learning to work it out, eventually even improving the environment.
I also really enjoyed watching Jamie (the journalist) grow and mature. She turned out to not be the selfish, uncaring woman I had thought she was at the beginning. Joe, her “new husband” for the two weeks, takes her over his knee for a much deserved spanking about her poor attitude and swearing. I loved it!
Jeremy, the “new husband” for Sarah, listens intently as Sarah explains the HOH relationship with her own husband. Sarah helps Jeremy realize that he has been shutting his wife out, and has been hurting her. Jeremy agrees to step up, and be the man Jamie needs, and takes some of Sarah’s other great advice.
I liked how each wife, had to work through her own struggles, and grow to be a better woman. But they also imparted their own wisdoms to empower their host families.
This was such a great example of giving and taking. This story had some very well delivered spankings, and more importantly, some great life lessons about mutual respect, honor, and the importance of loving communication.
This communication was shown very well, at the end of the story, when the two couples officially met to discuss the events of the past two weeks.
Sarah was offered the opportunity to do some freelance writing by Jamie’s editor. Sarah asked her husband, Joe, his thoughts on the matter. Jamie, back in professional mode, got confused and asked why Sarah should have to ask permission to do something important to her.
I loved how Sarah explained that she wasn’t asking permission, but rather for his thoughts on the matter.
“When you’re married, you care what the other person thinks. We have four children who will be affected by this. Joe will be affected by this. He may have to pick up the slack sometimes,”
This was a perfect response from a woman who knows the meaning of reciprocal honor and respect.
I really enjoyed this book, and loved seeing the imperfect realities of each family dynamic.
I also liked the positive attention given to home schooling and the stay at home mother.
This was such a fun, quick read!
It had a wonderful story line, fun twists, well developed characters, personal growth, a little bit of romance, some great spankings, and an overall feeling of positive energy.
What a fun, quick read, combining, Domestic Discipline, romance, hot sex and great spankings. I loved it! I just wish it would have been a little longer. I loved these characters!
Linc, the Dominant, sexy husband, who decides that DD just might save their marriage.
Regina, the strong, beautiful wife, who over-spends when stressed out.
Their sex lives and love for each other are amazing. The only thing that is standing in their way is the big issue of trust.
Linc doesn’t feel he can trust Gina (Regina). After one too many lies about shopping trips, and one too many huge credit card bills, he has had enough. He fears for their marriage. He fears for the woman he loves.
When he reads a column about the Rod and Cane Society, a society of men, who lead their women, and spank them when necessary, Linc decides to check it out for himself.
He learns that his job as leader of their family is to guide, protect, and empower his spouse. He learns that he needs to be a better man, and lead by example. He learns to really listen to what Regina says and more importantly, what she doesn’t say. He agrees to act without anger toward her stressed reactions, like shopping.
And it all starts with one very erotic spanking.
Their first spanking is hot as hell! Linc had decided to test Gina’s willingness to try spanking, by incorporating it into their already awesome sex life. And she reacts better than he could have planned. His carefully timed swats, increasing in cadence and intensity, only serve to increase her arousal. There is no shame, no second guessing – just raw passion. And it is beautiful!
Their discussion afterwards, about the spanking / sex combination is almost as erotic as the actual event itself. This leads to some fun exploration in other areas.
Gina is beyond pleased with this new dominant side of Linc. But she still has to hide her big purchases for the day. This is some great foreshadowing for what is coming.
Gina views herself as a feminist, a woman of today, not realizing that one of her role models in the professional world, Elizabeth Alexander, is also a “spanked wife”.
When Linc brings up the possibility of DD, Gina is mortified. My favorite line from this story, is when Linc says, “I accept responsibility for the success and happiness of this marriage.”
I love this line.
He explains that they can’t go on the way they have, with the fighting and the hurt. They agree to try DD for 6 months.
This story has some wonderfully written scenes that showcase DD as something that can help a relationship. When Gina disobeys the rules, she gets punished. And she accepts this because of her love for Linc. She trusts him atoledo.com to lead, and to not abuse the power he has been given. She also feels guilty over the deceit. I love the scene where she asks him for a spanking, because she feels so much guilt over lying about her huge purchases.
I also love how Linc grew into this role. He understands that Gina gets stressed out, and needs his love and compassion, not just a hard handed disciplinarian.
The couple grows even closer because of their new relationship, but one big event threatens to ruin it all. I won’t give any spoilers, but will say that the scene was done perfectly, and made me love this couple even more.
The story had steamy sex scenes, scorching spankings, and wonderful romance and intimacy.
I loved it!
It was a fantastic addition to the DD series ‘Rod and Cane Society’. I hope the author brings these characters back for more. I would love to see more of them.
This story has well-developed characters, a great story line, personal growth, romance, hot sexual encounters, including anal play, a dominant male who doesn’t let the power go to his head, a strong female who learns to trust herself and her partner, and a fun look into the world of domestic discipline.
4.5 stars! A must read for anyone who reads spanking fiction.

Domestic discipline with dryads and spankings, could this trilogy be a bit more mystical? Mr. Hand is a new author for me. His stories are straightforward and more than just about the spanking. In this trilogy, it”s a bit of paranormal with witches mixed in with possible fae characters. It kind of reminds me of a Twilight Zone or Supernatural show.
There is a town, LaForge, which receives good fortune as long as a sacrifice is performed each year. Only women age 18 to 35 can become a willing participant. I have two regrets when I learned of this condition. The first one is that this town doesn”t really exist. The second one is that I”m too old. C”est la vie. For this tale to work, Mr. Hand provides a believable back story which helps to bring this all together. It”s nicely done with just a touch of erotic spankings.
This is a light BDSM story with gentle domestic discipline. The male “protector” Sam Reilly is living the dream. At four women”s behest, he becomes their disciplinarian. Not only does he spank with his hand or leather implements, he enjoys sexual interludes with the sexy foursome – unfortunately only one at a time.
Three short stories tie together between the spankings and the fight between good and evil. Unsurprisingly, the evil forces are easily combated by the good people of LaForge. Surprisingly, the spankings, whipping and sex are glossed over. This trilogy is recommended to romantics who enjoy a light kinky spanking.
