Spank Or Treat Blog Hop #SpankorTreat

It's almost Halloween!! Time for The Spank or Treat Blog Hop where spankings and prizes are the norm! I'm giving away four prizes to commenters on my blog in addition to the AMAZING prizes for the overall hop! Keep reading to find out more.

For my post, I'm sharing a snippet from The Rogue Knight, my first Medieval erotic spanking romance. The manuscript is in my publisher's hands and - barring a thousand pages of edits - will be out soon. 

There's quite some reading to do if you plan on visiting every blog so I won't set this scene up - just let you know there's a spanking. Surprise..

* * * *

     Gemma watched Sir William approach, took a quick glance in either direction but determined to hold her ground. She wasn't going to plead with him. She was just going to tell it to him as it was. He had no rights over her. "I just want to find my sister. I know my father means well but he does not understand that we do not have time to waste."
     "Does not understand? Your father is a wise man. Life may have aged him prematurely, but I wouldn’t say he does not understand. I think it is you who does not understand the danger you've put yourself in, not to mention the small window of time we have to save your sister."            He sat down on the stump of a tree. "Tell me what exactly you were going to do when you caught up with them. If you caught up with them," he asked.
     She shifted on her feet. "I will catch up with them and then I will take her back. Bring her home."
     "How exactly?"
     She made a face and shook her head as if he were the one not understanding.
     "Let me be more specific. How were you going to track her?" he pressed.
     "I was going to go west," she said, wavering a little.
     "And then?"
     Well, she hadn’t really thought of the 'and then' part. She glanced at the ground then returned her gaze to his. "Is that not obvious? And then I would find her, kill the men who kidnapped her and bring her home."
     He nodded, scratching his scruffy neck as he looked up into the now blue sky. "So, just to make sure I, this old, weak man, understands…" he began.
     She cringed at the words he threw back at her - he'd obviously seen the letter she had left for her father.
     "You were going to 'go west', magically locate your sister, single handedly kill her captors and return with her to your father's house unharmed."
     She glanced around, avoiding his somewhat amused, somewhat bored gaze. "That's about right."
     "M-hmm. Do you see any flaws in your plan?"
     "Excuse me for not having had the luxury of time to plan something far more elaborate and exciting! And speaking of time, you are now taking up not only mine but my sister's as well. Tell my father I'm fine and I'll be home as soon as I can with my sister. Good day, Sir William," she said, turning on her heel.
     She hadn't heard him even take a step when his hand was on her shoulder, halting her.
     "You are one stubborn little girl," he said.
      Just as he turned her, Gemma drew the blade from her sleeve and held it up, her hand shaking. Her heart raced while he looked almost relaxed as she held the blade to him. She carried the sharpened kitchen knife in case of something exactly like this, but as she had never had to deal with anything like this before, she stood wide-eyed, absolutely at a loss for what to do next.
     But she didn't have to think long because before she knew it, his hand had closed over her wrist and turned her, hugging her back to him just like he had done yesterday except that this time, his hold was much rougher. With a little pressure and a quick shake of her wrist, her knife fell to the earth.
     "You're hurting me!" she yelled, pushing the elbow of her free arm into his ribs as she pressed her hips back in an effort to free herself. "Let me go!"
     "Once I've taught you a lesson," he said, hauling her off her feet and carrying her backwards until he was sitting down again on that tree stump.
     "What are you doing?" she cried, struggling when he pulled her face down across his lap.
His huge hand connected hard with her bottom and even through the layers of both her dress and shift, she felt its strength.
     She gasped. "Ow! Let me go."
     He pulled her waist closer to him and spanked again.
     "You can't do this! You have no right!"
     "I can and I will, and it will be a good lesson for when you are my wife," he said.
     "I will never be your wife!" she protested.
     He lifted his hand and spanked once again over her clothes. "You are a stubborn little girl and you have more than earned this spanking. Your father may not punish you like this any longer but I certainly can and will."
     She reached her hands back to slap his away and cover her bottom but when she did, he grabbed both wrists in one of his hands and held them at her low back. "Thank you, that is much better," he said, his other hand now gripping one buttock hard. "You want to rescue your sister," he said.
     She stilled as he slowly slid his hand down the backs of her legs. When he reached the hem of her dress and his fingers touched the bare skin of her ankle, her breath caught.
     "You're very brave," he said, his tone just a hair lower, deeper. His fingers traveled upward, caressing now the back of her calf. "Courageous," he continued, lifting her dress and her shift as one as he reached the hollow at the backs of her knees.
     She made a small sound, a whimper, while he circled that tender, ticklish spot. But the tickle was something other, something almost erotic. And she knew he knew it as he hovered there, just lightly touching her skin. Her body stilled momentarily, her wide eyes staring straight ahead, the muscles of her back, arms and legs, tensed.
     "But your way of going about this rescue is, quite frankly, absurd."
     "What are you doing?" she asked, her voice small, wavering as cool morning air brushed the backs of her now bare thighs.
     "Preparing you," he said, and as if he knew she would fight against him, he easily shifted her weight and draped his right leg over the backs of her naked thighs, trapping her perfectly to him.
     "Preparing me for what?" she asked, knowing and dreading the answer.
     "Your punishment," he said easily.
     "You can't! I…" she began, but stopped.
     "You what?" he asked, his voice almost teasing now as he bared one buttock.
     Her belly quivered, panic taking her over, forcing her to buck as she tried in vain to fight him.
     "Be still, Gemma," he said. "You will take your punishment."
     "I will not! Let me go!"
     "After I've warmed your bare little bottom to my satisfaction."
     "No!" She mewled and tried to wriggle free.
     "What's the matter?" he began, taking her dress up past her waist, trapping the material beneath her hands that he still held there, fully baring her bottom and lower back now.
She whined in protest, but he ignored her. His big hand began to caress both buttocks, then stilled. She clenched her bottom tight. "I'm just a weak old man, after all. What have you to fear from me?" he said, raising his hand and bringing it down hard and fast twice on her exposed, vulnerable bottom.
     "Ow!" she cried out, trying to pull her legs in, somehow free herself but the way he held her, her hands pinned at her low back, her slight body pressed to his giant one, his heavy leg draped over her smaller ones, she was trapped.
     Without another word, he lifted his hand and struck her buttocks, alternating from one to the next, spanking hard and fast. She lost track of how many after the first thirty excruciating strokes. He didn’t give her a moment to catch her breath as she clenched and released her bottom, groaning, fighting to free herself, then calling out with the pain of what she was sure was his iron hand until he brought that hand to rest on her now hot, throbbing buttocks, caressing, circling slowly.
     The sound of her uneven breath filled the now quiet forest. Only after a few moments of this was she able to actually form words rather than incomprehensible sounds. "It hurts," she said, sounding foolish, feeling like a child.
     "I suppose it does," he said, wrapping that hand now around one thigh, gripping her hard and pulling her legs apart.
     This was different than the spanking and any courage gave way to desperate pleading.     "Please don't," she begged quietly, very aware of the pink lips of her sex peeking out from between her thighs. Was her spanking to be just the beginning of her punishment? What more did he intend to do?
     He ignored her, his thumb coming to her bottom as he still held her leg in a vice like grip. With that one digit, he depressed her buttock, spreading her open. She dropped her head, feeling the heat of shame rise to her cheeks.
     He held her like that for what seemed like an eternity and she squeezed her eyes closed, imagining his inspection of that most private part of her.
     "Please," she begged quietly.
     After an eternity he spoke. "I only intend on spanking you, nothing more," he said, his voice calm, quiet, if just a little thicker.
     She opened her eyes when he covered her buttocks once again with his hand.
     "Keep your legs like this," he said. When he lifted his hand from her leg, she did as he said, even as she squeezed her eyes shut anticipating the next round of punishment. He struck hard and didn't spare her thighs or buttocks, alternating between each at first then striking twice, three times, the same spot before moving to the next.
     She remained as still as she could now and even as she tried not to give him the satisfaction of making any sound at all, she found herself crying out with each stroke, her bottom half on fire. Her eyes overflowed with tears as sweat collected along her forehead, her whole body heating from the inside out. "Please stop! I'm sorry I said those things about you. You're not a weak old man. I'm sorry. I was just angry."
     "What else are you sorry for?" he asked, the blows raining down without any indication of stopping in the near future.
     "I'm just sorry. You're hurting me. Please stop!" she tried to kick her trapped legs but he carried on as if her struggles were nothing at all. "I'm sorry I went against my father and stole his compass. And I'm sorry I'm…" he slowed a little and when he did, the heat and throbbing sting of her backside were almost unbearable.
     "You are sorry you're what?" he asked, caressing again.
     A fresh tear fell but this was not one from the pain of her punishment. "I just wanted to get my sister before they did anything to her."
     "I understand that but your father did not want you to go for your own safety. And he was right. You are in no position to do this on your own."
     She heard his words, still very aware of the large hand that rested on her bottom, ready to deliver another round. She dared a glance over her shoulder but his eyes were on her exposed, vulnerable, red hot bottom as he circled there, rubbing her buttocks, her thighs.
     "Please don't send me home. Let me come with you at least," she asked.
     He turned his head to meet her gaze and she felt the ridiculousness of her situation, lying exposed across his lap, her humiliation fresh in every way.
     "I do not think I have much choice anyway," he said, and with his eyes on hers, he lifted his hand and brought it down one final time, this blow being the hardest yet.

Phew, where's the fan? Sir William is quite the knight in shining armour, first saving her from walking into danger her then spanking her. Yum.

Maren Smith said...

Wow, that was wonderful! Sir William can be my knight in shining armor too. I'm not eligible to play, but I'm answering anyway. Over the knee (reality and fantasy) and hairbrush (fantasy only; reality--OUCH!).

Roz said...

Really enjoyed this Natasha and I agree too, Sir William can be my knight in shining armour also! Favourtie position, otk and as for implement ... leather!


No Angel said...

awesome loved it looking forward to the book!!! I would have to say OTK and implement hmm IDK I really like his hand it makes me feel conected not sure that would be a implement

Autumn said...

Loved the story! Wow, I have never been spanked. I was turned into Spanking by Ana!!!! So I am really new at all this. I would love to try it with my husband but totally terrified. I guess I would say laying on the bed, and I love leather but that might hurt. I am going to go with a paddle maybe.

Pooky said...

Oh gosh I just finished Aching to Submit finally. I can't wait for this one to come out it looks HOT!!!!
My favorite spanking position is OTK, I have to have the physical contact. And the implement is the his hand- only his hand... it's much more personal and the most likely to turn sexy and slip south.

angieia said...

I would say on my hands and knees with a bare hand.

His First Mate said...

OTK, and the choice of implement varies. I do like leather though....

Kelsey Summer said...

My favorite personally is over the knee with just a hand. I like to read about all kinds, but much prefer the erotic spankings for myself.


Corinne Alexander said...

What a GREAT excerpt & great questions too! My favorite position is either otk/over the lap with hand or stretched out over a table grasping the other side & belt. I don't know how I'm going to tear myself away from all of these amazing stories to attend to real life!

Natasha Knight said...

I love him…I love all my leading men. I wonder if I can have a dream with all of them in it at once. I've given this some thought (believe it or not). Maybe I'd stretch it out…one a night. Or two a night, depending...

Natasha Knight said...

I have NEVER felt a hairbrush! OK, do I have too? I don't love wood…leather is good.

Natasha Knight said...

You know, for the reason that it was too personal, OTK and hand is almost too much for me, or was when we started. We tried it again last weekend (at my request on the position) and I felt completely differently about it.

Natasha Knight said...

Hi Autumn, I think lying on the bed is hot. Actually, it's ALL hot just different. Ok, have you told your husband? I'm a helper (or interferer, depending how you see it??). I'd love to help. I can tell you for us, it's made such a difference in my trust for him. Anyway, if you want to chat about it, e-mail me. :)

Natasha Knight said...

I think this is the reason this position is so hard for me! Too much, too personal. I told a friend that a few months ago and she said she was curious how I'd feel in a few months and I do think it's changing. Interesting - so glad to hear all the answers.


Natasha Knight said...

That is just hot!!! :) I love anything on hands and knees really… :)

Natasha Knight said...

I love leather. OTK seems to be the position of choice… :)

Natasha Knight said...

I love erotic, never have had a punishment spanking. Not sure my husband can wrap his brain around that just yet… we shall see…

so OTK again - I think we have one that's not OTK so far!!

Natasha Knight said...

Everyone loves OTK! I think over the table grasping the other side and the belt (oh God the belt!) is HOT HOT HOT!!

Off to read another story...

Emily Tilton said...

OTK is special, certainly, but if I had to pick one. . . over a desk. ;) Wonderful excerpt, Natasha!

Natasha Knight said...

I love over the desk but I'm switching to over the arm of this one love seat we have (deep arms) and the belt. I have a thing for the belt. Thank you Emily.

Natasha Knight said...

OTK is the position of choice so far Roz so you are not alone. I love LOVE leather - everything about it…

ronnie said...


Thank you for a wonderful excerpt.

OTK with the leatherthorn paddle but I do love/hate the cane as my readers know.


Leigh Smith aka Sunny Girl said...

I love over the arm or the back of a sofa and the belt by far. Why is that so darn popular?
Really great tale and it's on my wish list.

Cat said...

Hey it sure is gettin hot around here! To answer your question: I prefer the physical contact of OTK but modified so that my head and upper body are across the bed. As far as instrument: FEATHER! Wood is no good, leather is better and feathers are best! LOL

Mary Wehr said...

Very hot, Natasha. I like OTK spankings especially if the guy is fully dressed with rolled up sleeves, exposing his muscled arms. WOOT!

SH said...

Can't wait to read this book, hopefully it comes out soon! I prefer OTK with hand.

Joelle Casteel said...

ah ha! :D I actually know this as I wrote about it for my blog post today... and no, OTK isn't it. My favorite is on my stomach on the bed with my Master laying beside me using the beater stick- which He had to teach me to like :D I adore when He mixes using the beater stick- usually in repeated blows- mixed with the occasional hand slap. And including the thighs is important. I do adore the spanking you've shared though. Especially how he pauses and has her spread her legs.

PK Corey said...

I love so many different type of spanking stories, but this is my favorite type - real people, real situations, real spankings. You have it all here, I love it.

abby said...

Love this story, want to read it all! OTK and His hand.....but after a nice warm up....the flogger is the best!
hugs abby

katherinedeane said...

Wow, Natasha! This is going to be an amazing story. I can't wait to read it!
Great scene, btw!

As for positions and implements; my fave is OTK with his hand. My fantasy though, is to kick and scream, and pretend not to want to be spanked.

A girl can dream, right?

Terpsichore said...

I really enjoyed this story. My favorite position is OTK with my husband's hand. Thanks, Terpsichore (VIP) terpsichore7(at)gmail(dot)com :-)

pao said...

Poor Gemma :P I'd like to see how their relationship changes through their journey. As for the answers to your questions... over a desk and how about air for the implement :P

Constance Masters said...

Great story Natasha. Over the knee on the bed…and hand :)

Constance Masters said...

Great story Natasha. Over the knee on the bed…and hand :)

kelly adams said...

Over the knee with a paddle although painful more intimate. Can't wait to read this story Natasha thanks! VIP.

Casey McKay said...

I am hooked! When is this book out?? I already love Sir William :) I'll be over here fanning myself for a minute...

So fantasy I like OTK, not so much real life, I prefer to bend over something. And yes, leather! I love leather! Real and fantasy.

Rogue said...

As long as it's leather, I'm happy. :) Oh, I love the book title!

Alta Hensley said...

OTK with hand. Delicious, Natasha! Well done.

Dana said...

I want to see the rest of the story now.

Favorite is over Steve's lap with his hand. I love the intimacy of being over his lap and his hand is usually only used for the fun spankings.

joannebest said...

Love this! As far as my fave, nothing more than an over the knee hand spanking given by Him is enough to drive me over the edge ;-)
email is yummycatt(at)aol(dot)com and btw, yay for Spank and Treat, I'm finding so much to love <3

Normandie Alleman said...

Yay! Medievil, I love historical fiction. What a great excerpt.

Katie said...

I loved this story Natasha!! I'm looking forward to reading more about Gemma and Sir William in the future!

My favorite position is OTK, with one of the leather paddles! Thanks for writing,


Elizabeth Marie said...

hmm, I've never been spanked before. Maybe over the couch, I think a belt would hurt but I have a strange fascination with it!

TL Bucko said...

This was a great start. I can't wait to read more about these two. I'm a sucker for the good old OTK, more like lap really as Bucko is usually stretched out on our bed. My favorite spanking implement is this heart shaped leather paddle we have. That side is absolutely wicked, but the soft fur afterward is divine. :D

TL Bucko

TL Bucko said...

oops... I forgot to add VIP

Anonymous said...

OTK with the hand...slow buildup of heat with plenty of lecturing. ;)

Suzy Ayers said...

I dont know really what to say except I loved that. I scrolled back up to see which book it was from. Thanks so much for sharing that Natasha. Suzyayersauthor (at)

Kristin Elyon said...

What is your favorite spanking position: doogy with head down, arms stretched and butt in the air ;)

favorite implement to spank or be spanked with: hand first ;)

My email is Thanks for the chance to win!

Binz said...

Hmmmm if I could have my fantasy fulfilled a simple otk by my hubby's palm would suffice...can't wait for more of this story :-)

chickadee said...

Sadly I have no clue - yet! Never having experienced anything other than a hand it's really hard to even guess.


Blondie said...

This is almost too difficult to choose. I know which one I hate, and that is bent touching the floor and expected not to lose my balance. I don't think I have a favorite. Since we own a paddle shop, I would have to say a paddle is my favorite spanking implement. My husband made me a pocket paddle out of Purpleheart and he enjoys using that. I prefer his hand over anything

Anonymous said...

Hmm, my favorite position for being spanked is over the knee, with my hands held or tied behind me. My favorite implement is a hot, heavy hand! Thanks for the excerpt!

Renee Rose said...

OTK and belt! that was very yummy. Of course you KNOW how much I love medieval spanking knights!!!! can't wait for this one!

kaisquared said...

Love the knight spanking! OTK with a knowing hand works.

Irishey said...

Hi, Natasha, and thanks for the excerpt! I love anything written in a medieval setting.

Good question(s)! Sadly, I'm notoriously rotten with "what's your favorite..." questions. I love your scene with Gemma being hand-spanked over Sir William's lap, so I'll just go with that being my favorite in this instance!

Natasha Knight said...

Hi Ronnie, wow, I'm finding so many awesome blogs - love yours - will lurk further…

I've never felt the cane but fantasize about it all the time. Before the end of the year however, I shall know it. :)

Glad you liked the excerpt!!

Natasha Knight said...

Hi Sunny Girl, I am with you. Although I love the crop too - I'd forgotten it! I think with the belt, it's the idea (for me at least) of seeing it on him the next day. Makes me all hot again...

Natasha Knight said...

Wood scares me too, I'll be really honest there. I used to think I had buns of steel and could take it all, then my husband really spanked me… 20 with his hand were memorable!! :)

Natasha Knight said...

There is something to him being fully dressed, ideally in a suit as if he just came home from work, rolling up his sleeves…mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm…………..

Natasha Knight said...

Thank you SH! You write the reviews on my books for SNP, right? A thank you for those, I always love reading them.

OTK with hand is VERY popular...

Natasha Knight said...

OK, I want to hear when it happens the first time then Elizabeth! For me, it was completely different than my fantasies but so so good! Over the couch and belt are my favorite too - or crop as I was reminded of it last night.

Thanks for commenting. :)

Kathryn R. Blake said...

Definitely the sort of spanking William gave Gemma. Being held over a man's lap as he applies his bare hand is more intimate and erotic for me than any other position could be. Loved the story, Natasha.

Adaline Raine said...

AGGH for the word limit. Really like the scene. :)
Favorite implement is a belt. I like her spunk and his handling of her. You can tell he has concern.
brattyadaline at gmail dot com said...

I can't wait for this to come back from the publisher! This scene was awesome, but to be honest, I'm hoping Gemma gives a bit back to Sir William. :-) said...

Awesome excerpt. loved it. I like the intimacy of the classic over the knee with his hand.

Ruth Staunton said...

I have to go with the classic otk, as well, but at the same time I have a sort of love/hate thing with a belt. They terrify me but fascinate me too. And yes, I'm aware the two don't go together, but I've always been weird.

Fiction - over the knee and hand.

Tracey Horton said...

In real life--I like laying on our sides facing each other and he spanks me with his hand and then rolls me onto my tummy to finish it off. I have never had a punishment spanking, husband CANNOT go there LOL.
In fantasy I would love to be bent over the back of the couch with his belt. just sounds so yummy to me. I am sure the reality would be more than I could handle, but hey, that's why it is fantasy.
Can't wait for this--I just love Regency!
Tracey Horton, VIP

Minelle Labraun said...

Love this story! I cannot wait for more. OTK for sure and the hand!

Anastasia Vitsky said...

What a great story! Thanks for participating this time around and joining the Spank or Treat fun.

As to favorite position...probably over the bed. And hairbrush for sure. mm!

Michelle Palmer said...

Fabulous story! I can't wait to ready more! Favorite position... probably on the bed. Implement? I'm going with the crop... so hard to choose!

erzabetbishop said...

I love it! *fans face* More!!! flogger or hairbrush. :)

Natasha Knight said...

Hi Michelle, thank you so much for commenting. I too LOVE the crop! I'm deciding between belt and crop now…

Hey, I need your e-mail address so hopefully you pick this up! I'm stalking the internet for you :-) You're on my list for the prize drawing so if you get this, please reply!! My fault for not stating that up at the top!

Thank you!

Never mind Michelle. I have to - Addy had your address!
