It’s hump day again, and that means it’s time for another steamy look inside my forthcoming Regency spanking release!
This week, we join Lydia as she recalls the outrageous behaviour that Lord Thomas Markham inspires in her…
It is sometime later when I find myself curled against Thomas in our huge, four-poster bed. The memories of our earlier debauchery swim in my mind, as though they are distant recollections, not the reminiscences of just a few hours ago. I watch the light slipping from the window, listening to the comforting sound of my husband’s heartbeat as I recollect our arrival back to the house. I was fortunately dressed again by this point, but much of our transgression must have been obvious from the condition of my day dress, which was soiled heavily by the grass and mud in which I had knelt.
Embarrassment stirs in me again, and I shift against his body, rousing him from his own thoughts. “Are you well, my love?” he murmurs, lifting his head to look down upon me.
I shift my face so that I can see him. He looks relaxed and gleeful, as well he might – and yet I cannot deny him the pleasure he desires – on this of all days. “Yes,” I whisper, with a nod of my head. “I was just thinking about our walk earlier.”
He smiles, knowing at once to what I refer. “Mmmm,” he answers, “we must walk there again soon. You looked most becoming on your knees in front of me.”
“Thomas!” I say, suppressing the natural blush which rises to my face. “You must not say such things!”
“Nonsense,” he replies flatly. “On the contrary, these are things which a husband should say to his wife.”
I sigh, not wanting to disagree. “I am pleased that you enjoyed it,” I say, bashfully, and he grins at my response.
“My love, claiming your mouth is as near to heaven as I am likely to get,” he replies with a wink.
I smile. “You are truly incorrigible!” I say, but I cannot help but laugh at his expression.
“Guilty,” he replies, and his grin broadens.
