Author comments on book: Taming Lady Lydia is the most sensual and potent romance I have ever penned. Lord Markham is the Regency hero I always fantasised about... He’s a strict authoritarian with a loving, tender heart.
Publisher synopsis:
When eighteen-year-old Lady Lydia Franklin becomes the ward of Lord Thomas Markham after her father’s death, she quickly discovers that the wealthy, handsome gentleman believes in strict discipline for wayward young women. Her penchant for naughtiness soon earns her a sound spanking, but despite his willingness to punish her as often and as shamefully as he feels it necessary, Thomas’ firm-handed correction leaves Lydia helplessly aroused.

Though he is charged with ensuring that Lydia’s innocence is preserved, Thomas cannot help but notice her body’s response to his stern chastisement. It isn’t long before she is lying naked across his lap as she is spanked thoroughly and then brought to a blushing climax, and over the coming days he sets about teaching her what it means to surrender herself completely to a dominant man.

Being taken in Thomas’ arms proves more pleasurable than Lydia ever dreamed, and she finds herself imagining a future as his wife rather than his ward, but the dark rumors about his past are hard to ignore. When he asks for her hand she agrees to be his bride, but once the wedding is over will the bond between them hold firm or will it all end in scandal and heartbreak?

Publisher’s Note: Taming Lady Lydia includes spankings and sexual scenes. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.

Author synopsis:
When her father, Earl Franklin dies unexpectedly, eighteen-year-old Lady Lydia is sent to live with her guardian, the unknown and enigmatic Lord Thomas Markham. Initially eager to leave her new home, Lydia is indignant at her guardian’s firm and protective behaviour, but everything changes that first night when she accidentally discovers something shocking about life at Markham Hall…
Now, in spite of his rules and expectations, the young and indulged Lydia finds herself inexplicably drawn to her guardian. Lord Markham it seems, is a gentleman who will finally provide the firm hand she has always needed, and Lydia begins to crave his discipline, desiring him to take her over his knee and deliver a sound spanking.
With their affections for one another growing, Thomas and Lydia seem set for a bright future if only events would stop conspiring to tarnish their happiness. Can their burgeoning romance survive the scrutiny of Thomas’ mother, the Countess, and the interference of their peers? And can Lydia learn to live by Her Lordship’s governance, and find the happily ever after they so desire?

His voice is low and steely, making me uneasy. “I thought I had only recently delivered a lesson in respect, and yet now I find it may need teaching again.”
The knot of excited anxiety in me twists, knowing full well what he means, and yet refusing to acknowledge it. “There is nothing further to learn, My Lord,” I say hopefully. “I meant no offence by it!”
“And yet offence was taken?” he replies, staring at me severely.
“For that I am sorry,” I reply, in a little more than a whimper.
He nods, a small smile forming on those lips. “I suspect you will be,” he answers. “Once you have been taken over my knee again.”
My heart is raging inside of me, and threatens to push up into my throat. “My Lord!” I gasp, “you cannot mean to do so here, in the carriage? What if we are seen? What if the driver, or the footman hears us?”
The smile on his face grows. “Then I daresay that you, My Lady, will be rather embarrassed?”
My breath is coming in short bursts now, and I am close to panting again. “But, Thomas – what will people think?” I look to the carriage door anxiously, as
though escape is even an option available to me.
“Most likely my dear, they will think you are a naughty young woman in need of correction from her guardian, and they would be right, wouldn’t they?”

Saturday Spankings - Where's Cassie?

Thanks for coming by for Saturday Spankings today. I’m anxiously polishing the soon to be released Cassie book and going back on Saturdays to give you snippets from some of the other books. Today I’m in book three, Cassie on the Move.

While on a cruise with friends, Cassie had already gotten herself in trouble with Tom by sneaking out one night to go to a show without him. The next day he told Cassie to stay on board rather than shop in port. Annoyed, but complying, Cassie stayed on the ship. But when she and the girls tried the climbing wall, Cassie broke a nail. Tom loves Cassie’s hands and she knew she had to get it fixed before he saw it – since it was obvious evidence of unladylike activity. But when Tom comes back to the ship and can’t find her, he thinks the worst. Sue calls the salon to tell Cassie Tom was angry and to hurry.

I was surprised. Tom is so controlled, usually I’m the only one who can tell when he’s mad. If Sue knew he was angry something was up. But it couldn’t have been me, even with the broken nail I hadn’t done anything that would have really made him mad.
The girls were all together headed toward our rooms when they spotted Tom stalking toward them, obviously extremely upset.
“Where’s Cassie?” he demanded.
To which they all answered in unison, “Cassie?” As if they had never heard of me before. Really, could they have been any more suspicious?
Sue said it was as close to shouting as she had ever heard from Tom when he thundered, “Where is my wife?”
Although they had all promised not to tell him I was having a nail repaired, we had forgotten to collaborate on a story as to what I was supposed to be doing. Faced with an angry husband the girls all seemed to be stammering for an answer until Annie nearly yelled, “We’ll help you look for her!” And then as if a starting gun had sounded they all took off in different directions. Sue said later it must have looked like a scene from the keystone cops as they all bumped into each other in their dash to get away before Tom could corner anyone with specific question.

Cassie is on the move and loving life. Through paint ball game in the woods and water park adventure she’s gets to know her new neighbors as the new house is renovated. 

Cassie is traveling too, from trips with just the girls, to conventions, vacations, and cruises with Tom and friends, she's always ready for the next adventure. But when Cassie begins having dizzy spells Tom thinks a slower pace is in order. Getting Cassie to slow down and take care of herself proves to be quite a challenge. A challenge Tom is more than determined to take on.
