Publisher's Summary

Lady Eleanor Petersham knows exactly what she wants from her marriage - a man who will worship at her feet.

Instead, her father marries her off to her brother's best friend, the devastatingly handsome, authoritative, and devilishly dominant Lord Edwin Hyde.

It doesn't matter that he makes her entire body tingle when he kisses her, or brings her to heights of pleasure she's never known, or how he disciplines her when she plays nasty tricks on him - like throwing a dinner party which only includes dishes with ingredients he despises - she's not willing to give up on her version of marriage without a fight.

Pain and pleasure struggle for dominance the same way husband and wife do in this relationship.

First In a Four Book Series

This book would fall into erotica and domestic discipline. I believe the era is Victorian, although I'm not sure. It is interesting in the way men and women relate to each other, as well as how the same sex interacts in society. The narration was pretty good. I think it served to enhance the story.

I found the father's discipline of Eleanor to be a little creepy. I also found it creepy that Eleanor's brother Hugh was allowed to discipline her.

Edwin and Eleanor's relationship is off to a shaky start, with issues that are not fully worked out in this first book. I discovered quite by accident that this is the first in a four book series because I started listening to the 4th book and had no idea what was going on.

I voluntarily listened to and reviewed the Audiobook received from the author.

WOW! Hot

This is the first book by this author that I've listened to. WOW! It is hot! I would say NSFW! Great Story! I'm already listening to the next one in the series. I have added this author to my TBR list.

A perfect wife

I wasn’t sure if I would enjoy this-the story is outside of what I’d normally listen to- but I really enjoyed it! The story was entertaining, with a historical taboo element of a wife enjoying her husband’s kink. Really loved the narration, too, fit the story perfectly.

Has its moments...

This story would have been really good had the 'hot' scenes been quite a bit less explicit. I'm a great believer in "less is more".
Also, the narration of this audiobook was not the best that I have heard as at times I found the pitch irritating and shrill.
But on the whole, it wasn't all bad and could have been better with a bit more polish.
My voluntary review above is given after listening to a free copy of the audiobook version and it is unbiased.

Childish and Absurd

The idea of the story was fine, but they need to learn how to use more words to represent a part of the body or a behavior. I felt like I was being talked down to, and like the reader was bored. I would never recommend this to anyone, unless it was to learn how Not to write a story.

Great Regency Romance

Any additional comments?

Birching His Bride is an intriguing Regency romance with lots of spankings and very steamy intimate scenes. Eleanor is forced to marry Edwin and makes her displeasure known by acting out as much as she can. Her behavior always leads to being disciplined by her husband. Soon, Eleanor realizes that she likes being spanked and that maybe being married to Edwin might be a good thing. The only thing I did not like so much was the small cliffhanger at the end but it also made me curious how the marriage will continue.

I listened to the audio book and I feel that the narrator S. Kitten did a very good job. Her pronunciation is great and did the book justice. I love both: reading the book and listening to the audio.

I'm Impressed

Eleanor has been spoiled and pampered by her mother for years. Her father puts a stop to this by making sure she is properly disciplined so she doesn't shame the family. He arranges her marriage immediately after her coming out party to somebody he knows will keep her in line as much as he did. I'm surprised I enjoyed this story. Normally stories like this make me feel very uncomfortable. It's not that I am against it. It's just not really my cup of tea. Something told me this would be different. That this author was different. I was completely right. I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the books. I didn't really feel connected with the characters as much as I got connected with the story itself. I cared about them, but I didn't really feel what they felt. I honestly can't say I really cared for Eleanor that much either. She was a spoiled little brat who didn't care about anybody's feelings but her own. Not that she deserved to be treated like a child, but still. S. Kitten was a terrific narrator for this story. I'm not sure if she narrates the rest of the series, but I sincerely hope she does. I enjoyed hearing her voice very much. it was very soothing. As weird as that sounds. She got some words mixed up here and there, but it still worked. Her performance was beautiful. I stepped out of my comfort zone with this book. I'm glad I did. This book was definitely wonderful and sensual. It's not what I expected at all. Or maybe I should say that it was much more than I expected. Maybe it defeated all expectations and kept going.

A great start to a great series

What made the experience of listening to Birching His Bride the most enjoyable?

Bringing to even more life the characters in a series of books I very much enjoyed reading. Listening to a book, by definition a slower process than reading, was a wonderful way of relishing the characters and the story even more.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Eleanor without a doubt - her inner thoughts, motivations, confusions and realisations made her believable and real. Eleanor coming to terms with a marriage she thought she did not want and finding reality very different despite her shenanigans was very well done.

Which character – as performed by S. Kitten – was your favourite?

Eleanor again!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Definitely! But real life intervened!

Any additional comments?

I have the entire set of eBooks and will be looking out for the rest of the series on audiobook.

Excellent reading of a favourite book

I have enjoyed all seven of the books in this series and was delighted to find the first one on Audible. The narration is very good and I enjoyed revisiting the book with this new version
