Lila’s life is perfect. A successful career in fashion, a sleek, artfully decorated home, and her adoring husband- Luke. Everything is going her way. She couldn’t be happier.
One night while enjoying a few glasses of red wine to unwind after work, she gets a little cheeky with Luke. He takes her by surprise and instead of putting up with her humor, throws her right over his knee for a good, sound spanking. Lila is left confused. She is angry that her husband took the liberty of punishing her, but also finds herself incredibly attracted to Luke’s new, commanding behavior. Despite her conflicting emotions, when he proposes a new way of life- doing things his way for a change, Lila agrees.
A visit to Luke’s hometown only adds to her confusion. She discovers that her outgoing southern-belle sister-in-law, Heather, and her husband have been practicing domestic discipline for years. She also learns that her husband is not shy about spanking her whenever he sees fit.
Life has a few more big surprises in store for Lila. Some are heartbreaking, one will change her life forever. Will it all be too much for Lila and make her revert to her old bossy self? How far is Luke willing to go to convince her that his way is best?
This is a sweet spanking romance, where the heroine takes several trips over her husband’s knee.

“Lila,” Luke used his fingers underneath her chin to guide her gaze up to meet his. “I said, do you understand?”
“Yes, sir,” Lila muttered.
Luke raised his eyebrows at her, “I think that you are in need of a reminder spanking.”
Lila gulped, “No, I think I’m good. I really will take better care of myself.” She started to inch away from Luke on the bed.
“I don’t think so. When you are sitting at your office desk at six pm, I want you to have a memory that will get you in the car on time.”
Luke gently guided Lila over his lap. He lifted up her skirts and pulled down her panties.
“Lila, I want you to watch me spank you. Look up.”
Lila looked up, realizing that Luke had positioned her facing the antique, full-length mirror.
She gasped at the scene before her. He looked so handsome and powerful. She was in an incredibly vulnerable position.
Then, as she watched, he spanked every inch of her bottom. She started to squirm.

I found this first part of the Taken Trilogy to be a page turner. The main two characters are a husband and wife, Luke and Lila, but also the story has many secondary characters that all play a vital role in this tale. This is the voyage into incorporating domestic discipline into their marriage and setting a new tone after a new promotion for Lila was altering control. The story is an excellent example of a loving couple learning the give and take of a relationship and deciding what is the most important issues to keep peace and harmony.
Lila is a very successful in her career in the fashion world. She dresses sharp, had a stunning home, is over lots of people and doing well. But sometimes promotions and power can upset the balance in a marriage. Luke loves his wife, is successful in his restoration of antique vehicles, and is proud of all Lila has accomplished in her career. For her job, he moved from his hometown so she could have this job. He can appreciate her control at work, but she has started to take their relationship for granted and even laughs at Luke and makes unacceptable comments.
One night, pushing to issue too far, a husband telling her he will take her in hand, she laughs, and he shows her he is serious. Was it a fluke, or is this the direction their marriage needs to take? When she pushes it again, he shows her he is serious. Luke talks to Lila that he wants to be Head of Household and wants her to accept and work with him. What starts as a week a vacation, becomes a learning curve for Lila. But when an accident hurts Luke, Lila will learn how precious life is.
Lila may return to their home and her job, while Luke stays with his family to continue with his recovery, but Lila is lost without him and either she is overdoing it at work, not eating and sleeping right and then she isn’t focused. Luke will have to take charge so this couple will continue on a path to happiness.
