Sample Chapter

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?

Sample Chapter

Shana glanced at the sun as it kissed the horizon. A knot formed in her stomach when the tall solar lanterns on the street flickered to life. She took off running. She should’ve had dinner on the table already, but she’d gotten sidetracked at the library. Mary Miller, the oldest citizen in the settlement, had been telling stories to the children about the Old Days. Despite the fact she’d been on an errand to pick up a book for her uncle, Shana had sat down on the floor with all the bright-eyed boys and girls and absorbed every word that fell from the old lady’s mouth. Mary’s mother had been around before The Fall ? before the deadly combination of a terrible plague, a great war, and severe solar flares across North America that destroyed a grand way of living. The little old lady had rattled on and on about electricity, cell phones, fancy cars, shopping malls, computers, and something called a dishwasher. Of course, now Shana was late and Uncle Daman would be displeased.

She clutched the battered copy of 1984 to her chest and turned down the dirt street that led to his house. After her parents died when a sickness swept through their nearby settlement when she was fifteen, Shana had come to Jackson Settlement to live with her only remaining relative. It had been weird at first ? sharing a house with the man who’d briefly been married to her mother’s sister. After all, he was only ten years her senior and they weren’t related by blood. Daman had never taken a second wife, which Shana found strange. He wasn’t hard on the eyes, and women practically flung themselves in his direction ? until they realized he wasn’t interested and moved on to their next male target.

As Shana crept up the creaky porch steps, she said a silent prayer that her uncle wouldn’t be out of sorts over her tardiness. Perhaps he was busy in his workshop and not yet aware of how much time had passed since he’d sent her to fetch the book. A shiver ran down her spine and warmth pulsed between her legs. The same apprehension, coupled with a physical arousal she’d rather not admit to, overcame her each time she worried about Daman’s reaction to her waywardness. He had instructed her to return home immediately after fetching the book, but she hadn’t obeyed him ? for reasons that now seemed foolish.

Who was she kidding? Once she opened the door, she would be in for it. Deep. Painfully deep. Uncle Daman would summon her to his study and blister her poor bottom with that awful paddle of his. Her hand hovered over the doorknob as she thought of all the times he’d punished her. The first instance had been not long after she’d turned eighteen. She’d always been on her best behavior before then, and he hadn’t laid a hand on her during the first four years she’d spent under his roof. Sure, he’d threatened her with a spanking plenty of times, but she’d been too terrified to find out if he was serious that she never disobeyed his totalitarian rules until she’d come of age. In the Old Days, a person was an adult once they turned eighteen. She’d assumed Daman wouldn’t possibly bend her over his desk once she was that old. But she’d assumed wrong.

Taking a deep breath, Shana entered the house. Her stomach flipped when the wonderful aroma of vegetable stew greeted her. Not only was Daman aware of her tardiness, but he’d gone ahead and started dinner.

Not good.

Guilt and fear mingled in her chest, and her legs felt heavy as she made the dreaded walk to the kitchen. Just before she rounded the corner to the doorway, she straightened her dress and smoothed her hands through her long blond hair.

“I can hear you, Shana. Stop lingering in the hallway and come have dinner.” His clipped tone drove a knife through her heart. She hated herself at moments like this. Daman was a good man and kept a roof over her head in one of the safest settlements around. She was ashamed to have broken his rules, yet again.

She entered the kitchen and almost turned to run away. His face was like a thundercloud, his thick arms crossed over his broad chest. “Come here,” he growled.

She approached on shaky legs and held the book out like a peace offering, thinking of Winston and his terrible fear of rats. What was her greatest fear? Not death. There were a thousand things worse than death. Puzzled by this sudden thought, she watched Daman place the book on the counter, never once taking his eyes off her. The silence stretched between them as she stood submissively in front of him, her head lowered and feeling quite humbled ? and he hadn’t even punished her yet. Daman closed the space between them and lifted her chin with one finger. Shana stared up into those forbidding dark eyes, her insides melting and fluttering at the same time.

“Explain to me, Shana, why it took two hours to fetch a book from the library. What was important enough to keep you from your duties here?”

Briefly, she told him about how she’d stopped to hear Mary Miller’s stories about the Old Days, stories she’d heard plenty of times before, though he didn’t need to know that. “I didn’t mean to stay so long, but before I knew it the sun was setting. I’m sorry. I feel terrible.”

“Not as terrible as you’ll feel after I take my belt to you, young lady.”

Shana swallowed hard as her heart hammered in chest. Before she could reply, he spun her around and applied one heavy whack to her bottom.

“Go sit down,” he barked.

Dinner was a silent, painful affair. Shana ate slowly and was so preoccupied by the conflicting feelings Daman stirred within her that the stew seemed tasteless. Her nipples stiffened and she fought the urge to touch them to ease the growing ache. She stole a glance at her uncle. It didn’t take a genius to figure out why women ogled him every time he walked down the street. He was gorgeous ? for a man. His hair and eyes were as dark as the night, and she often wished she could trail her fingers along his strong square jaw, especially in the evening when he sported a rugged shadow. He was one of the tallest men she’d ever met, and if she were to kiss him, she’d be forced to stand on her toes. What a thought.

Daman dabbed his face with a napkin and pushed back from the table. “Clean up the kitchen, Shana, and then get ready for bed. I expect to find you in your room, soon.”

He left Shana to her own thoughts, and a dirty kitchen. It struck her as unusual that he’d ordered her to bed. Did he plan to punish her in her room? He’d never done that before, instead preferring to bend her over the desk in his study to administer a spanking. She fetched fresh water from the spring that ran through the cellar and placed it on the woodstove to heat. She used it with a dash of soap to scrub the dishes and counters clean. Once everything was put away, she readied herself for bed and crawled under the covers to wait.

She chose her longest cotton nightgown, but with a sinking heart realized Daman would flip it up and bare her bottom anyway. No matter how much she begged, he always did. The worst part was that he got a good view of the area between her legs each time, but ignored that particular part of her anatomy as if it didn’t exist. She couldn’t count the times he’d run his hand over her bottom during a punishment and she’d found herself aching to be touched there.

Shana sighed. Most of her friends were married now, and at twenty-three she was the oldest eligible woman left in the settlement ? and probably the oldest virgin too. But even though she’d never been with a man, Shana knew what went on between husbands and wives. She’d heard plenty of friendly banter about sex between her married friends. So while she understood what it was she craved from Daman, she dared not reveal her secret to him or anyone else.

The topic of marriage had never come up with her uncle. Why hadn’t he arranged a union for her yet, and why did he refuse all matches proposed by other families? Too nervous to broach the subject, she dreaded the day he announced a match for her. As her guardian, it was his responsibility to see her married one day. Oh, but she hated the thought. The day she left Daman’s home would be the day her heart broke to pieces.

Leave the rats for Winston. Being separated from her uncle was her greatest fear. Experiencing another man’s intimate touch was her greatest fear. Her twenty-fourth birthday loomed five months ahead like a death sentence. It was doubtful she’d remain under Daman’s roof much longer, not when most girls her age were married with two or three children already.

The creaking of floorboards brought her back to reality. She sat up in bed, staring silently at her uncle. He held his belt in one hand, and one glance at the terrible implement left her shuddering. The bed dipped as he sank down beside her. Her heart flooded with warmth when his expression softened.

Oh, what she wouldn’t give to wake up to that handsome face every morning for the rest of her life.

* * *

“I don’t want to hurt you, Shana, but you disobeyed me and caused me to worry. I know the settlement is safe, but if you’re told to return home, I expect you to follow my directions.” Daman watched lines of distress appear on her pretty face as she met his gaze. Even in her moments of apprehension, she was the loveliest creature he’d ever set eyes on.

He sighed when she didn’t respond. Of all the days for her to earn a punishment. He cursed inwardly at the bad timing. Sending Shana to fetch a book at the library had only been a ruse to get her out the house for a few minutes. Daman had planned to cook dinner anyway, as a surprise and as a means to soften her for an important topic he planned to broach this evening. By sending her to her bedroom instead of his study, he hoped she wouldn’t be as frightened, but he now second-guessed that decision. This was intimate and dangerous on a level his niece probably didn’t realize.

Or maybe she did. She might be young and inexperienced, but she wasn’t naive.

He trailed his fingers under chin. “Let’s get this over with, shall we? There’s something important I must discuss with you tonight.”

A flicker of doubt crossed her features as he guided her onto her stomach. He hesitated before baring her bottom, but decided not to go soft. The world was a dangerous place, especially beyond the barriers of the settlement. Shana’s waywardness would get her into serious trouble one day if his expectations and punishments lacked consistency. He had to remain firm.

Which was exactly why he planned to marry her.

True, she was his niece, but not by blood. He’d already obtained permission from the priest and he doubted anyone would raise an eyebrow over his decision. Okay, maybe an eyebrow or two. Not that he cared. He’d be damned if he’d let some young buck take her away, possibly to another settlement. No. She belonged to him.

Shana buried her face in the pillow and fisted her hands in the sheets after the first smack. Daman warmed her up with his hand, placing ten firm slaps on each cheek before reaching for the belt, knowing it carried more bite than the paddle. Her hands flew back and he captured her wrists in his left hand.

“You know better.”

The dark pink flesh of her bottom turned an angry shade of red as he lowered the belt repeatedly, giving her twenty blows in all.

After moving her nightgown down, Daman gathered her in his arms. She never cried, no matter how harsh the punishment, but he still felt compelled to comfort her each and every time. When she’d first come to live with him, she’d been inconsolable and had cried herself to sleep for a month. Nothing he did or said could soothe her, and it had been a relief to see her tears dry up one day. That was six years ago, and her emotional detachment in certain circumstances scared him now and then.

She smiled plenty, and her frequent laughter was the most beautiful sound in the world. But when a situation became tense, she erected a sturdy wall around her heart. She allowed herself to feel joy, but never despair ? at least openly. No tears, ever. He knew the spankings hurt, that physical pain was a deterrent, and her remorse was always evident. Sometimes he’d catch a glimmer of moisture in her eyes, particularly if he was scolding her, but she’d blink it back immediately, causing him to question whether or not it was there in the first place.

He continued to hold her, rubbing his hand down her back while listening to her deep breaths. Her hair smelled of the lilac shampoo he’d brought her after a trading mission to Marshall Settlement.

“I’m sorry, Uncle Daman,” she said. The regret in her voice was obvious, and it pleased him that she’d learned her lesson. If something bad were to happen to her . . .

It was a thought he couldn’t complete.

He drew back and kissed her forehead. “You’re forgiven, my dear.”

Slowly, Shana drew away from him and seated herself in front of her pillow. With her long white nightgown and wavy blond locks framing her angelic face, he couldn’t help but stare. She hugged her legs to her chest and gazed questioningly at him. “What did you need to talk to me about?”

A stab of worry and doubt left his mouth dry. He cleared his throat and said a silent prayer that she would accept his decision. “You’re twenty-three years old now, Shana. It’s time you took a husband. That’s what I want to talk to you about.”

The bed quaked as she adamantly shook her head in protest, her hair flipping violently about her face. “No, please, not yet. I don’t want to. Can’t I wait another year or two?” Panic laced her every word, and her wide blue eyes pleaded with him.

Daman regarded her strangely. “Most of the friends you’ve made here are already married, many of them with children by now. I thought you’d be pleased.”

“Are you sending me away because I’m bad? I promise I’ll listen better. I’ll do more around the house. I’ll do whatever you want ? just please don’t make me get married.” Her chest heaved and she blinked rapidly.

She was almost crying.

He moved closer and gathered her small, delicate hands firmly in his. A slight smile curled his lips up, and her reluctance to leave his house ? for whatever reason ? gave him the confidence he desperately needed to continue the conversation.

“I’m not sending you away.” He hesitated and waited for her to meet his gaze for a long, tense moment. “I intend to take you as my wife, Shana ? if you’ll have me.”

Her mouth dropped open and she inhaled quickly. “You want to marry me?”

Daman grinned and suppressed a chuckle. He couldn’t help but find her surprise amusing. Of course she didn’t understand the depth and complexity of his love for her. He’d never spoken those feelings aloud. But was she so blind that she didn’t at least suspect it? He could’ve set up a match for her years ago, but he hadn’t. Nor did he do so much as glance at another woman since she’d come into his home.

He squeezed her hands. “Yes, I want to marry you.”

“I don’t know what to say.”

“I won’t force you, Shana. Think on it.” He leaned forward and kissed her forehead again. “Sleep well.”

Daman found his own bed, but tossed and turned for most of the night. A brief instant of solace warmed him as he recalled Shana’s fear. She’d seemed not only opposed to marriage in general, but afraid to leave his home. Her reaction puzzled him as much as it gave him hope. He closed his eyes and drifted into a restless slumber, wishing he were a goddamn mind reader.

* * *

Shana was beyond stunned. Daman wanted to marry her. Talk about a dream come true. She planned to tell him yes first thing in the morning. She would’ve accepted his proposal the moment he’d asked ? if only her senses hadn’t abandoned her. I don’t know what to say. Ugh. What a silly response.

She imagined what it would be like to share his bed, and a shock of scorching heat blasted straight to her pussy. If the priest had already approved their marriage, they could become husband and wife any day they chose. She closed her legs tight together and tried to think of something else.

The spanking. Would he still see fit to chastise her after they got married? She wasn’t sure whether she liked the idea or not. Part of her had come to love the punishments as much as she hated them. The growing ache between her thighs confused her to no end. Even though it was as great a sin as premarital sex ? according the church ? Shana sometimes couldn’t help but touch herself in the privacy of her room after being spanked by Daman.

Her heart beat faster and she squirmed in the covers, feverish and uncomfortable. She rolled on her side and reached up her nightgown, beneath her underclothes to feel her tender bottom. Trying to rub the soreness away only increased her arousal. She glanced at the curtain that separated her room from the hallway and listened. Nothing. It was late. Daman would be asleep. No one would ever know.

After returning to her back, Shana pulled the covers up and slid her fingers into the silky folds between her legs. She gathered the moisture from her core and spread it over the little button that would bring the release she craved. As her desire grew in waves of liquid warmth, she closed her eyes and flew into a spiral of sweet quaking pulses of pleasure. Her hips lifted as she swirled her finger while replaying the recent spanking episode in her mind. She thought of the belt snapping across her bottom, and the feel of Daman’s strong hand as he’d warmed her up first. Her mind wandered to all the times he’d bent her over his desk, forcing her legs wider before paddling her cheeks bright red.

“What are you doing?”

Shana gasped and shot straight up, yanking the covers up to her neck. The room was still illuminated by the undimmed lantern beside her bed, giving her a good view of the dark eyes glaring down at her.

Uncle Daman.

Humiliation and fear coursed through her and chased away her desire, yet somehow fueled it to burn hotter. What would he do? Worse yet ? what did he think of her now? He didn’t adopt many of the church’s more stringent teachings, but she wasn’t sure what his feelings would be in this situation.

“I asked you a question, Shana,” he said, drawing closer. “What were you doing?”

She clutched the covers so tight her hands began to hurt. She lowered her head. “I ? I don’t want to tell you.”

Amusement flashed in his eyes. He knew very well what she’d been doing, and Shana cringed. She wondered why he bothered asking the question in the first place.

His face darkened suddenly and he said, “Lie down on your back. Now.”

She shook her head. “No. Please just let me go to sleep.”

“Unless you want me to turn you over my knee like the naughty girl you are, I suggest you listen. Lie down.”

Shana obeyed, but kept the covers in a vise grip at her chest. When Daman joined her on the bed and tugged at them, she sighed and let go after he raised a menacing eyebrow at her defiance. He moved them down and she shivered, but not from the cold. Their eyes locked and she couldn’t remember ever feeling so terrified or excited.

“Be a good girl and stay very still.”

It took all of Shana’s willpower to remain motionless as Daman reached a hand between her legs, delving underneath her nightgown. He slipped his fingers down the front of her underclothes and groaned. “Oh, Shana, baby,” he said, his voice thick and coarse. “You’re very wet, and very naughty.”

“Just let me go to sleep,” she begged, trying to squirm away.

“No,” he said firmly. “Now let’s get rid of these.” He slid her underclothes off, tossing them on the floor.

The gleam in his eyes sent a shiver down her spine. He was looking at her as if he intended to devour her alive. And she was bared to his gaze now that her underclothes were off and her nightgown gathered around her waist.

Boldly, he cupped a hand over the mound between her trembling legs. “If you marry me, Shana, this will belong to me. If I catch you pleasuring yourself, you will be punished.”

    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.

    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 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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?

    This was just an Ok story for me. I do enjoy the apocalypse genre, but this one was too short on the details and the relationship just didn\\\’t feel realistic. I\\\’d like to know more about the settlement and how it was run – women had to be more than just property in this situation because everyone\\\’s skills would be needed for survival. I wanted to know what Shana\\\’s role was…did she have any skills or talents? I felt that Daman was too harsh and only interested in his needs in this relationship. He felt great satisfaction in his power over Shana, but I personally didn\\\’t feel much love between them. For instance, he never seemed to go out of his way to do anything special for her. I also thought the punishments were over the top – especially slapping her breasts. I personally felt that was abusive, and not necessary – as was the entire pre-journey punishment. Could have been a much better story.

    Shana has been in love with her Uncle Daman (they are not related in any way) for quite sometime so when he asks her to marry him, she quickly agrees even if she already knows that she will be receiving punishments from him when she goes out of line… It\\\’s a fun quick read which I enjoyed, I just feel that so much more could be done with the story, since it has such a great premise.

    I enjoyed some parts of this book. I, too, found Daman excessively harsh and needed more loving care and tender feelings for Shana.

    A rather sweet story of a young woman left in her handsome, yet strict, uncle\\\’s care only to realize that she is physically attracted to him. Her dreams are then realized when he marries her and they begin their life together as man and wife. Though their life on the settlement is difficult, Damon keeps her in line with his strict discipline that always makes her feel safe.

    This story was cute. At first I felt weird that she was into her uncle but it grew on me and I was really happy for her by the end ( I don\\\’t want to spoil anything.) Daman was definitely someone I can dream about. This was a great read

    I think I would have enjoyed this story much more if the spanking were given for good reasons. I felt that although the hero kept saying how much he loved his wife he didn\\\’t show it with his actions. The story was well written and well thought out. Just not a favorite for me.

    Shana has been raised by her uncle by marriage since she was 14. Now, Daman wants to marry her and be able to love her and keep her forever. I like this story, even though one of the punishments made me a little uncomfortable reading it.

    I thought the discipline was much too harsh. Perhaps the story wasn\\\’t long enough for me to see more of the loving touch.

    The book is well written. Daman and Shana\\\’s relationship develops throughout the story. It is a bit weird that she continues to call him uncle Daman after they are married but to each their own.

    Definitely enjoyed this story! I liked that, while he was strict and punished her, this was still a very sweet love story.
