Publisher's Summary

Voted Best Victorian Spanking Romance of 2015 on Spanking Romance Reviews.

For 19-year-old Charlotte Winthrop, there is nothing quite so irksome as putting up with the tedious attempts at courtship of one nervous young suitor after another. Having grown up without discipline since the death of her parents when she was a child, Charlotte's sharp tongue and often less than ladylike demeanor have caused her hapless aunt and uncle no end of grief, and they have all but despaired of finding her a proper husband.

Lord Edward Pemberly III is no timid schoolboy. He is a man of the world, both a gentleman and a businessman, and from the moment she meets him Charlotte's heart is set to racing. Edward quickly makes it clear that once they are wed, he will not hesitate to correct her whenever and wherever he sees fit. On the day of their wedding, she misbehaves, and he backs up his words, delivering a sound bare-bottom spanking that very evening.

Edward's plans for Charlotte extend far beyond just spanking, and she is soon kneeling naked at his feet, her beautiful body and bright red, well-punished bottom on full display while he inspects what is his. Though her face burns crimson with shame as she is tied to his bed, spread open and fully exposed, she cannot help quivering with desire and even begs for more as her husband claims her fully.

With every new experience, every blushing climax, and every stern chastisement, Charlotte finds herself falling deeper in love with her handsome, dominant husband. But when a jealous, vindictive woman seeks to come between them, can Charlotte keep her wits about her and trust that Edward is hers forever, just as much as she is his?

Keep the title -- it fits.

Any additional comments?

Charlotte's getting married. She's 19 and has been raised by her Aunt and Uncle for her teen years. They say it is time she married--in reality, it is time someone else took over the feisty young lady. She just isn't the demure young Victorian woman they expect. Enter Edward. Older, they still are immediately attracted to each other. As for what discipline her Aunt and Uncle failed to impart on her, Edward does. As her husband, he keeps a journal of indiscretions and imposes what he considers appropriate punishment usually in the form of spankings.The two are in love and their relationship suites them. If you enjoy some fairly light BDSM, a romance where the couple is really in love, with a bit of a May-December (although his age is not really disclosed) you will enjoy this. The narrator has a delightful accent and the author presents interesting characters and a good storyline not typical to the Historical of this era from my experience.

Spankings!

This story deals with the Victorian era when women were kept in line with domestic discipline. Charlotte is a spoiled young woman that acts without thinking about the consequences. I like how this story shows the listener what Charlotte really feels and what her true motives are. Edward instantly falls for the spirited Charlotte and is more than willing to teach her self control and what it is to be loved. The narrator is a very good storyteller. I asked to receive this Audible book and voluntarily wrote this unbiased review. If you like books about spankings, I highly recommend this Audible book.

Save your time for another book.

I don't know who they got to write the other reviews; there's even one that compares this to 50 Shades of Gray. In a word: UNTRUE.

Sure, there was some sex in it, but it wasn't hot. The dialogue, while fitting to the time period, sounded and read like any respective period piece, as though there were no dirty content whatsoever. Not even sure if I'm explaining this right... There was no room in the dialogue for the proper inflection of the theme (sex). On top of that, the narrator was horrible. He sounded like an old man. I didn't even finish the book.

Perfect Victorian Story!

Edward is a charming dominant where he found a perfect wilful bride to take care of. Charlotte was indeed wilful during her stay with her uncle and aunt but after being with Edward for a while, she sounded very mature and learning quick to become an obedient submissive wife! Love this story very much with great story line and steamy stories! Elliot Daniel has a husky voice too that I usually don't really fancy but fortunately he narrated it perfectly for this story! Thank u Maggie and Eliot Daniel for doing such a great job!
