Strapping Corinne - An Excerpt with Renee Rose

Renee Rose is here today with a HOT little snippet from her latex, Humbled

Hi Natasha, thank you for having me on your blog today!! 

I had fun writing my new spanking romance Humbled, as the idea of a fortune reversal and the tension between social classes during the French Revolution fascinates me. The hero, Jean-Claude is a pretty good guy--I couldn’t make him too mean to Corinne just because she was an aristocrat, but he’s not afraid to spank her to help her understand her new “place” with him as her master if she wants him to help get her to safety. When the captain of the ship they’re on wants to see the lady lowered and goads her into throwing her wine in a passenger’s face, Jean-Claude steps in to deliver her punishment, rather than have her suffer at the captain’s hands.

She whirled to face him. “I hate you!” she hissed.
“Would you rather be whipped by me or one of them?”
Her jaw thrust forward and her eyes flashed, but she threw herself at him—smacking her forehead against his breastbone and leaving it there. He took it as a request for an embrace and wrapped his arms around her, though she did not return the hug.
“Come,” he said, spying the leather strap hanging on the wall. He retrieved it and sank onto one of the wooden chairs, pulling her over his lap.
She gripped the legs of the chair in her fists and glared at him over her shoulder.
“The sooner you cry, the sooner this will be over,” he said, knowing he could not walk out of there without Corinne looking properly chastised.
“I will never cry!”
He sighed. “I feared you would say that.”
Lifting her skirt up over her back, he clamped her legs under one of his own and brought the leather strap down across her two cheeks. The sound reverberated through the room, and he imagined the men out on the deck could hear it as well. Corinne did not make a peep. He was not surprised. He struck her again and again, landing even stripes across her bare bottom, down to her thighs, then back up again, then repeating the pattern. He kept a steady, rapid pace.
“I admire your pluck, Corinne. I truly do. But I have doubts as to your ability to appropriately assess risk.”
She still did not utter a cry, but her body writhed and danced across his lap, even with his leg holding her in place. He knew she must be experiencing pain by now, even if she was furious.
“We are at the mercy of the captain for the remainder of this trip, and we have only been sailing for one day! Do you think you could have held your temper?”

“No!”

Blurb
Sentenced to die at age eleven for stealing a pig, Jean-Claude receives an unexpected reprieve when a young aristocrat girl takes the blame instead. When the mobs of the French Revolution fall upon her ch√Ęteau years later, Jean-Claude knows he must save her and repay his debt, but as they begin their long flight to safety he makes it clear he is not her servant and he will deal firmly with any disobedience. Though he initially intends to send her off by ship, the beautiful, feisty Corinne inspires a fierce protectiveness in Jean-Claude that makes it hard to say goodbye.

Corinne is alternately infuriated and attracted to the handsome peasant who has no qualms about turning her over his knee and spanking her bare bottom when she steps out of line. When he ends up joining her on a ship to New Orleans, their futures become inextricably intertwined, but can a common-born blacksmith and the daughter of a lord find enough common ground to make a permanent match?

Thanks Natasha and Renee, I'm loving the snippets from this book! Love the contrast between how stoic she is and running into his arms. Poor Corinne. I think the captain needs a spanking!

Hugs,
Roz

Just finished this book and LOVED it! Where do I put my five stars? Apart from the obvious, I also loved the rich historical atmosphere, the turbulence of the French Revolution and the social mobility and possibilities that the new world offers.

A lovely couple. Even the captain wasn't so bad, when you got to know him...
