Shana's twenty-fourth birthday hovers on the horizon like a death sentence. She's the oldest eligible woman in Jackson Settlement, and she dreads the day her guardian, Uncle Daman, announces her marriage.
Her feelings for her widowed uncle are complicated, especially because they aren't related by blood. Daman is a strict man who wields a mighty paddle, but Shana has grown to love him wholeheartedly in the years after her parents' death.
To her surprise, he proposes they get married. Of course, he's upfront with her about his expectations in a wife. If she marries him, she'll be subject to spankings and more intimate discipline when she misbehaves.
Will Shana accept his terms of marriage? Even worse, will the threats looming outside the settlement barriers doom their relationship before it even has a chance to begin?

Uncle/husband Daman was a strong character that fit the world created for him. Shana promised a lot but only gave some. I wanted the uncle aspect followed in their marriage. I wanted her more confident in herself. I wanted to know more about their married life. The settlement life was developed so that I could see it in my mind. I wanted to see so much more. Is there a possibility of a sequel?
Enjoyed the story very much. A bit different, and lots of spanking.
This story is set in the future where things have all gone to ruin. Women are again considered property. Shana is old to be unmarried but her uncle by marriage who has cared for her since she was a teen is protective. It was interesting look at how their caring has evolved into something more for both of them. Different from what I usually read as far as the setting but a very interesting and rich story.
This is erotic sexy read. Then first sexy/spanking scene had me panting for more. This story flows well, and enough intrigue to make it interesting. I enjoyed it from beginning to end.
This is a great read. The sex/spanking scenes are hot and the sex start off riveting and the novel ends with a loving spanking. It contained all the elements I enjoyed and is well written.

I want to start off by saying I adore Sue and her books. I love the ideas that she comes up with, especially her female characters who are usually a mix of sensuality, innocence, and a little bit rebellious.
Shana crumbled as soon as Daman made his intent to marry her clear. She went from worrying about being home on time and wanting to please him as she remembered past punishments to a completely submissive slave. It seemed like her spark left.
I know why with the unusually harsh punishments that were dealt and I had a hard time connecting with Uncle Daman after he over does the one before he is to leave town. I had thought that Shana was going to be tempted to leave the settlement as she had done earlier but such a collaboration of implements and punishment prior was too much for me.
Despite this I read this story in just under two hours and wished there had been a little more to it. I was not disappointed in the length, I just had been hoping for more to do with Shana's friends and their escape plans because there was a lot of focus on that.
Overall, I did enjoy the alternate punishment that Shana received very early on in the book. I will hint only that it contains a thermometer and is one of the hottest scenes that I have EVER read. Sue has slipped in a thermometer scene in several of her books and it does not disappoint. It was done in a very dominating manner and Shana is in a very submissive mindset as it is being done.
Their intimacy is also very well written both before and after the wedding. Though before was more of Daman's torment that he could not have full access to his little niece. I also have to mention that I thought it may be creepy to have her call him 'Uncle' but they were not related by blood and you come to see that it is more of a title of respect.
Even with Daman's very firm hands and slightly rough ideas of punishment I have decided to give Shana's Guardian five stars. Sue Lyndon is one of the best writers out there for this genre and I already have her next title lined up.
It was very nice read. They were not really related by blood, so it is alright that they were married in the book.
Very hot and steamy.
Very good stroy about a young girl who has fallen in love with her gaurdian but hasn't realized he has fallen in love with her as well. They end up getting married and of course not all is peaches and cream and she ends up getting punished but he always makes sure she understands he does it out of love and not just to be mean.
Very nice futuristic story with an interesting plot that really caught my interest. The characters were good and yes theres spanking though there definitly could have been more but overall it was an enjoyable read.
I enjoyed this story and found every aspect to be believable. The build-up of Daman and Shana's relationship was quick but solid. Shana's struggle with her feelings was very well developed and her complete submission was beautiful. I was surprised there was no teasing from the townspeople after emphasis was put on it a few times. There could have been more spanking and I wish the last spanking was for a better reason.
This is an original and romantic short story. The characters are very well- developed and the plot is fluently. I liked it and I hope there will be a sequel.
From Uncle to Husband should seem awkward, but Sue Lyndon writes a believable story with well-developed characters and a realistic futuristic setting. The only thing that would have made it better was for it to be longer. Overall it's a good read.
I enjoyed the idea for the plot! I read it in one sitting! Good read!

Post-apocalyptic spanking! Wow! I really enjoyed the details that Sue used to build her post-apocalyptic world. The settlements and the rest. I loved to watch the building relationship between Uncle Daman and Shana. I particularly enjoyed the small flashbacks or the characters remembering things that had happened many years in the past. The detail of the book she gave him was very touching for me.
