Ah, it's the morning after, with a vengeance, for Lady Katherine. She has decided that it is most improper to continue a sexual relationship (sigh...) with Thomas. When he overhears her badmouthing him to her friend, he asks her to step into the library.
“Although we have agreed to alter some parts of our arrangement, I remain the lord of this estate. I believe, based upon your behavior and words this morning, you are in need of a firm reminder of who is in command here and I intend to leave you with one to help you remember me, long after I have gone to Aprilvine.”
He stroked his hand across the still tender flesh of her backside. Her bottom, accustomed to little more than sitting upon upholstered furniture, had been smacked, whacked, slapped, and spanked in a most unladylike manner twice since his arrival and she now prepared for his third assault on her posterior.
As the ruler came down upon her flesh, anger built within her being. With each successive stripe of the ruler she became more determined than she had ever been in her life.
She refused to cry out, though her delicate fingers clenched the opposite side of the desk and she bit her lip at the searing pain of swats upon her already bruised and inflamed buttocks.
She clenched her jaw and focused on her complete and utter disdain for this man. He might have a title, but he was no gentleman.
Don't worry, they'll get it all worked out...eventually.
Just a few more days. Lady Katherine's Comeuppance releases on August 14. But, if you can't wait until then, leave a comment, including your email address, and you might win a copy.
