This Story Is Sexy

Publisher's Summary

Merrie adored Francis Adams when she was a child. But when she was 13, he scolded her and smacked her bottom for letting her puppy run out into the street and then running after it. She decided then that she never wanted to see him again. Ever.

Now, six years later, coming home from school, she is shocked to find that he wishes to see her again, and even more shocked when he asks to marry her. But as drawn as she finds herself to him, she does not like feeling his chastening hand on her bottom. Francis, on the other hand, seems determined to use it; whenever and wherever he thinks she needs it.

Merrie has been hoping for a marriage in which someone loves her desperately. She knows that she feels that way; but does Francis? The words 'I love you' seem as if they are destined never to reach her ears.

Or are they?

Publisher's Note: This is a historical romance containing sexually explicit scenes and spanking between adults.

I don’t enjoy giving thumbs down to a book

Especially when I know how much work went into getting it published. However this was historically inaccurate and implausible. The hero unappealing;ing. The dialogue is stilted and the narrator makes the story sound painful. This needed to stay on the shelf. The worst part is the characterization of the hero as an abusive bully, who frequently refers to Merry as little girl and my little brat who tells her she deserves to be disciplined and how she needs to have a firm hand. I could not stomach this past the third chapter yuck!
