“Open your legs, Caroline. Spread them wide, dear. I am going to spank you here on your

inner thigh because you need to understand that what you did was expose this area of my

beloved to danger. Someone else besides me could have had their hands here.”

“What?” she huffed. “You can’t. That is not proper.”

“Ah, now we are getting somewhere. You have not been proper in your choices and now

you will feel the retribution of those improper decisions.” He leaned close to her ear,

“Open your legs wider than you have them before I open them for you. There, that is

good.”

Lady Caroline’s Defiance by Alyssa Bailey

 

Lady Caroline Duncan has always been an extremely proper young woman and does not step out of societal boundaries, ever. While awaiting an imminent proposal of marriage, Caroline decides she wants to play the sought out daughter of a Duke one last time. She wants a short season of parties in London before returning to her propriety dictated life, forever. She will dip her toe into the invigorating river of rule breakers just this once.
It is at this precise moment that Lord Alexander Ravens declares his long-awaited suit for Caroline’s hand. Caroline is thrilled to have captured the heart of the handsome Alexander but is hesitant to deny herself a chance at a last adventure. Sharing her desires with Alexander, she is pleased when he grants her permission. With great reservation, he draws up a contract that allows a clandestine betrothal only known by the intimate family. She can have her freedom within the edicts of proper society. Even the caveat that Ravens will promptly deal with all indiscretions over his knee barely gives Caroline pause.
As the month progresses, Ravens and the rest of her family are not happy with this new Caroline. When pulling her out of scrapes seems to be the order of the day, Ravens begins to fear that the lessons delivered onto her bare bottom aren’t enough to bring his beloved back into the folds of decorum. Is Caroline’s defiance of the tenets of polite society and a month of frivolity worth jeopardizing her fragile reputation producing a lifetime of loss? Will she estrange her rules-governed fiancé for a little bit of fun?

  1. I can certainly understand why he’d be upset to find her in such a circumstance, though I do feel sorry for her. Not sure if her situation was really her fault or not. Great snippet, Alyssa.
