Will centuries of a Highland legend prevent Claire from marrying her lover?
When Claire Armitage’s fiancé, Captain Felix Hughes, informs her that he must interrupt their courtship to travel to his estate in Scotland on urgent business, she is distraught. Refusing to wait patiently for his return as he instructed, she instead journeys to the highlands on her own to join him, but upon her arrival she quickly discovers that he will not tolerate such reckless behaviour.
Resolved to demonstrate to his future bride that disobedience will have consequences, Felix takes Claire over his knee for a thorough spanking on her bare bottom. But chastising her in such a fashion awakens desires in him that are too powerful to control, and to protect her innocence he attempts to send her back home to England until he can make her his wife.
Claire cannot be dissuaded from returning once more to Felix’s side, however, even if it means submitting to any punishment he sees fit and then surrendering completely to his lustful dominance. But when she learns the true reason for his visit to the ancient home of his family, and sees with her own eyes that Felix is much more than an ordinary laird, will Claire still yearn for him to claim her?

“Now, Claire, kneel upon the seat of this armchair and bend over the back.”
The leather creaked as she knelt. Crossing her ankles, so to keep her legs locked tight together, she leaned over the top and bent, lifting her bottom to the apex of the chair’s back. She cringed with shame at her exposed position. Once again he was afforded the opportunity to see parts of her anatomy that no man had ever set eyes upon. She wished it was over swiftly.
“Good,” he said. “Let us commence with this most unfortunate punishment.”
The smack of his hand swept up an arse cheek. She jolted, her hips jarring against the seat. She bit on her lower lip, nipping it with her teeth. Neither a sting nor a thud, it seemed as if his whole hand covered her lobe. Bent over with her skin drawn tight, she hadn’t the benefit of cushioning flesh.
Another slap on the other cheek, then back to the first. He repeated the alternating swipes in quick succession. Claire could barely snatch a breath between them and she screwed up her eyes, yelping softly with each spank.
“You left Inverness on your own, in the company of strange men in defiance of my directive. Such naughtiness and blatant disobedience. Bad girl.” He rattled his spanks on her hind end, aiming at the same area repeatedly.
“Ooo, I’m sorry,” she bleated.
The flurry of smacks continued and she jerked and squirmed, paddling her feet on the edge of the seat. Felix pressed his spare hand on her lower back and held her steady.
“Bad, bad girl,” he reiterated, punctuating his words with hard slaps. “Do you have any idea how much heartache you have caused me?” He paused.
“Too much.” She sniffed and tears dripped off the end of her nose.
“Do you feel suitably punished?”
What a question. Yes, she wanted to shout. Her bottom was on fire and whatever residue of cold lurked beneath her skin, the heat of the spanking had toasted it. No more, please—she almost shrieked, but she held back. Something else was happening to her and it wasn’t about the pain or humiliation. She pictured herself, bent over and spanked, under the dutiful care of the man she wished to marry, and it caused an amazing tingling in her pussy. What kind of sight was that to him? Abhorrent or delightful?
She had to find out. Without his permission, she parted her legs and showed him her most prized place.
