Sample Chapter

He’s a second son. She’s a second daughter. A twist of fate and cruel intentions brings this unlikely pair together in an impromptu marriage. Without a proper courtship, the pair must learn to live as husband and wife while facing challenges and dangerous threats that could destroy their marriage.

Andrew is a dominant young Lord who has very strong ideas on how his wife should behave. Cici is an innocent young Lady; sheltered, well-educated and well-bred. She is the image of feminine refinement and gentility that society expects. But if she is such a docile bride, why does she keep finding herself over her husband’s knee for much needed correction? Will she learn to be the submissive wife he demands? And can Andrew exert his dominance without breaking her spirit.

Author Maddie Taylor brings her style of romance, combined with elements of humor and intrigue, to this Victorian Era romp. Included are scenes of consensual and non-consensual spanking where the feisty heroine spends an inordinate amount of time over her husbands knee, desk or settee. When will he learn that she isn’t a child to be spanked and made to stand in the corner? Never we hope.

Sample Chapter

The slamming door startled Cici and she jumped, jabbing her embroidery needle sharply into her thumb. Placing the puncture wound in her mouth, she sucked away the small drop of blood. Frowning, she turned to face her irate sister who had already started in on her latest self-absorbed tirade.

?Can you believe he wants to marry me off to a Viscount? How humiliating. I am the daughter of an Earl, sought after by every hostess in London. Poems have been written in tribute to my beauty, my hair, my lips, and my breasts even.? Elizabeth angrily flopped down on the settee, arms crossed, and toe tapping in agitation. ?And he wants me to lower myself and become a mere Viscountess. Well, I won?t have it.?

Cici rolled her eyes at her conceit, but asked dutifully, ?Who is this Viscount, sister??

?Viscount Arrandale, a great big nobody.?

?But he is the brother of Sommerville, isn?t he? He is also his heir. That is hardly nobody, sister dear.?

?Oh piffle, he will never inherit. Sommerville is only thirty. He is the one who should be courting me. I won?t settle for less than an Earl, Cici. I won?t be humiliated this way.?

?I hear he is handsome and extremely wealthy. You would be settled for life. You could travel, see all of Europe and beyond. Imagine going to Rome and Greece or to the great pyramids in Egypt. Perhaps you should reconsider; you could do much worse.?

Elizabeth Richards gave her sister a scathing glare. ?Who wants to travel? I want to entertain and be entertained. See and be seen at balls, parties, and the theater. That?s what I want.?

?I?m sure the Viscount can give you all of that.?

?Can he make me a countess, a marchioness, or a duchess? No, he can?t and I?ll not consider him.?

Cecilia looked at her spoiled older sister. She was right. She was beautiful and she?d not exaggerated; there had been sonnets and poems written praising her face and form. She was the fashionable image of female perfection, tall and slender with honey blonde hair and cornflower blue eyes. Her skin was flawless alabaster. She was everything that Cici was not. She should be able to choose any husband she wanted, but this was her third season and she had turned down so many offers her selection of suitors was thinning. She had lofty goals, but the offers from the earls, marquesses, and dukes had not come. Beauty only carried her so far, and her personality was what kept them away. She was an overindulged, stubborn and out of control 20-year-old. Cici feared that if she didn?t change her ways she would have to settle for even less than a viscount or – worse in Elizabeth?s jaded opinion – a commoner. No one wanted to take a shrew for a wife.

Cici sighed, thinking about how her mother had cosseted her older sister. She couldn?t remember a time when their mama had told Elizabeth ?no.? Her mother was easy to read. Daughter of a baron, she had advanced her social standing when she had married an Earl. She was ecstatically happy to let Elizabeth have her way and buy the finest dresses, hats and furbelows for the season?s premier galas, parties and balls. She lived vicariously through her daughter, never having a season of her own before she married Charles Richards, Earl of Benton.

Her father seemed to ignore her sister?s bratty behavior until forced to intervene during a tantrum or sulk. Never an overly affectionate man, he still loved his wife and Charles always bent over backwards to keep his beloved happy. So she couldn?t figure out why her father was pushing for a match that was out of favor with Elizabeth. Cici puzzled over this; something was wrong and she planned to ask her father about it.

?You must help me, Cici.?

?Me? What can I do??

?I am supposed to be introduced to the viscount tonight. You can help by sticking to me like glue at the Berkly?s ball. If he doesn?t get me alone he can?t press his suit. I will make it a point to fill up my dance card straight away. If he does manage to wheedle a dance, I?ll become suddenly ill and insist that you assist me to the ladies retiring room.?

Sighing heavily, Cici felt trapped. She hadn?t planned on attending that evening. But she knew if she didn?t agree to Elizabeth?s scheme, she would just go to mama and get her way. Putting aside her needlework, she rose to ring for her maid. She?d need to find something to wear.

?The Earl of Benton, Countess Benton, Lady Elizabeth Richards and Lady Cecelia Richards,? the steward called out as he announced the family and they advanced to the receiving line. After formally greeting their hosts and making it to the end of the end, Elizabeth and Cici were presented with their beribboned dance cards.

Elizabeth reminded her sister to be vigilant. ?I?ll signal you when I need you so don?t wander off,? she said. She then stepped into the ballroom, where she was besieged by beaus eager to pencil in their name for the multitude of dances, in particular the coveted waltzes and supper dances. Most turned to Cici and filled in their names on her card as well. Both girls were taken for every dance in just a few minutes. Cici accepted this as courteous since it would have been rude to ignore the younger Edward?s girl when she was standing right next to her sister. Many spent the dances talking about Elizabeth or probing for information. It was one of the reasons Cici preferred not to attend, as it quickly became tedious. Used to the hubbub that her sister?s overshadowing presence stirred, Cici moved off to join a group of her friends who were also debutantes and had made their come out that year.

Lady Margaret Ashwick grabbed Cici?s hand and pulled her into their noisy circle of chattering, giggling, simpering young women. ?Oh Cici, your gown is lovely.? Cici?s gown was a hand-me-down, but the seamstress had done a commendable job of cutting it to fit and remaking it to look stylish. The ice blue fabric of the off-the-shoulder gown shimmered in the candlelight as she moved. The cut of the gown and the large elongated hoop accentuated her full breasts and narrow corseted waist. The secondhand gown was indeed lovely and was the perfect foil for her auburn locks. Caught up in a mass at her crown, it then fell down her back and around her shoulders in a mass of loose curls. Although an unfashionable color, Cici had always thought her hair was her best feature.

?Thank you, Maggie. But I have to confess that this is one of Elizabeth?s cast-offs, let out here, tucked there and hemmed up to the knee.?

?Now, now? You are every bit as lovely as your sister and your dance card is already full.? Maggie chided her diminutive friend in a motherly fashion, but as she looked down at her from her average height she couldn?t help but tease. ?But you are a little bit of a thing, aren?t you? Even I tower over you. ?

?Yes, I?m a bit shorter and much rounder.? They laughed as they eyed her sister?s reed thin figure. Cici knew that Elizabeth lamented her sadly lacking bosom. But with the new corsets these days, the modistes were able to design gowns that pushed up whatever few assets a flat-chested woman like her sister had, creating a much rounder and womanly silhouette.

It was then that Cici noticed a stunningly handsome man making his way through the ballroom. Tall and fit, his shoulders were incredibly broad and his coat fit him to perfection. He had a regal bearing and female heads turned admiringly as he passed. She sighed wondering why someone like that never noticed her. She mentally kicked herself for asking because she knew the answer.

Cecilia was a petite, curvaceous redhead with freckles. She loved to read and could often be found poring over travel books and periodicals. Nothing about her was the least bit fashionable, so she was reasonable and understood that her options for a husband were limited. But she couldn?t resist finding out more about the attractive young gentleman who had caught her eye.

?Who is that tall gentleman over there? He is quite stunning don?t you think??

Maggie looked to where her friend subtly indicated with her fan. ?Oh, Cici, don?t make me answer that. It?s just too troubling.?

?How can that be??

?That?s my brother Andrew. And although I do think him handsome, I really can?t comment on him being stunning or otherwise.? Maggie giggled as she looked at her blushing friend. ?I?ll get Papa to introduce you, I think you would get along famously. You have a lot in common.?

  1. Jaycee

    I was a bit hesitant in buying this story. From the description, I was worried that Andrew would be harsh and domineering, but that wasn\\\’t the case. In fact, I quite enjoyed this regency story. Cici and Andrew are forced to get married, due to a cruel prank played on them by Cici\\\’s sister. But instead of harboring ill-will toward one another, they make a go of their marriage. It was neat to see their relationship develop. I was afraid that Andrew would try and quash Cici\\\’s spirit, but he didn\\\’t. Yes, there was discipline, but always meted out with explanations, never in anger, and usually with good dose of eroticism thrown in. I also appreciated the length of this story – it allowed for several plots to be fully developed and come to satisfying conclusions. I gave this a 4 star rating, only because I would have liked to have seen a bit more reluctance and fight from Cici regarding her discipline. The added tension would have made the story just a bit more exciting.

    As I love MT\\\’s Club Decadence series I thought I would love this one as well and I was right! I like to read a good historical romance as long as it is believable, unless I know from the beginning that it is a fantasy, and this one hits the nail on the head! What a great story, wonderful characters, a great plot, some danger, love and some spanking! Great job and I would love to read another…maybe a follow up with Duncan and Maggie?!

    This book is by far the hottest, wittiest, all over well-written regencies I\\\’ve read in a long time. I loved everything about it. There is a lot of plot and of course it has 6o,ooo words so plenty of story to enjoy, not the typical 20-40k. I can\\\’t say enough for the word play. It was so entertaining… amusing. I laughed, I learned new things… I was totally absorbed. While I loved Maddie Taylor\\\’s other books- I think that she was born to write this. She has definitely moved to my READ NOW list.

    Not often a large fan of Victorian stories, but this one held my attention quite well.
    You\\\’ll find it\\\’s easy to fall in love with the characters in this book. Well, most of them. Some of them you just want to choke a little at times for there mischievous behavior. What fun is a book without a little drama in it, right?
    I really enjoyed the way this story left me feeling. It didn\\\’t feel like a history lesson. It felt like the heartwarming love story that it is.
    Pre-arranged marriages have always bothered me, but in this case, it\\\’s clear that Cici and Andrew are just right for one another. But who couldn\\\’t tell that from looking at the amazing cover. The DD and the Spankings in this story are HOT! Maddie Taylor can most certainly write one hot and inciting spanking scene.
    I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a sizzling hot romance with all the right spicy ingredients

    I enjoyed this story. Andrew and Cici are so much fun together. Cici starts as a proper young lady but Andrew will have none of that in his bedroom. He teaches her a lot of things the most important of which is her worth. Cici flourishes under his care and he cares for her completely. A beautiful story about an arranged marriage that turns into a love match.

    I\\\’m not a big fan of Regency romance, but this one grabbed me from the beginning. Cici is a different sort of heroine, being quiet, obedient, a bit shy and bookish – she\\\’s my kind of girl. I loved reading about her and cheering for her, waiting for her to get her Happily Ever After. This story was romantic, enticing, and thoroughly captivating. You\\\’ll want to start it early in the day, or you might – as I did – not get to sleep until you finish it!

If not he is happy to provide all the punishment she needs to change her ways. Added to all that is the mystery behind Cici\\\’s frequent mishaps….are they really an accident or is something more sinister going on?

I am hooked. Andrew and Cici were perfect. I enjoyed their witty banter, the romance that bloomed between these two forced into marriage and the spanking and OMG birching were just right for a Victorian. I can\\\’t say enough. I was glad to see she had several other stories. My credit card is whining already. LOL

    Spectacular! I can\\\’t say enough. This Victorian had it all. Romance, intrigue, suspense, a villainesse you wanted to punch in the nose and cheered when she got her comeuppance. There was so much plot that I almost forgotten it was spanking fiction. Then came the birch! Yummy. Who would have thought that could be a sensual spanking experience. Hoozah Ms. Taylor, you have gone to the top of my must read list. Will there be a followup? I hopes so.

    I finished reading this book for the second time today, and I loved it every bit as much as my first go through. Maddie Taylor is a genius, especially when it comes to historical fiction. When Andrew and Cici find themselves forced into marriage, they vow to make a go of it. Cici is horrified to learn that her husband was very serious about the obey portion of their vows, and means to enforce his rules with discipline, loving, but strict. When a string of accidents threaten Cici life, they begin to worry if there is something more sinister going on, and Andrew is determined to protect his wife. This is a splendid tale of love, loss, mystery and discipline, all the elements to make up a brilliant story.

    I, too, loved this book. All of Maddie Taylor\\\’s books that I have read so far have been hits. In this book, you are on Cici\\\’s side from the first page. She is a sweet girl who is somewhat overlooked because she is the younger daughter. Her older sister has been spoiled and expected to make an advantageous match. Andrew can see right away that Cici is the better of the two, and when they are forced to get married because of a scandal engineered by the spoiled sister, they both decide to make the best of it. Andrew is strict, but fair in his dealings with Cici. Add some danger and suspense, and you have a great story.

    I, too, loved this book. All of Maddie Taylor’s books that I have read so far have been hits. In this book, you are on Cici’s side from the first page. She is a sweet girl who is somewhat overlooked because she is the younger daughter. Her older sister has been spoiled and expected to make an advantageous match. Andrew can see right away that Cici is the better of the two, and when they are forced to get married because of a scandal engineered by the spoiled sister, they both decide to make the best of it. Andrew is strict, but fair in his dealings with Cici. Add some danger and suspense, and you have a great story.

    This story was so good. At first i thought it was going to be a little harsh. but was i wrong. I was also a little confused at first over who was who, but it was quickly explained with no problems. It works so well when the man can be rough on the woman when she enjoys it. Maybe not the actual punishment, but everything else that happens. Cici really bloomed being with him, and they were truly meant for each other. Very nice HEA!
