The Knight’s Seduction by Renee Rose
Avowed to never again yield to a man’s ill-treatment, Lady Daisy stands ready to fight to the death when her castle is sacked. The imposing knight Sir Barrett has other ideas, however, and to her dismay, Daisy soon finds herself not only disarmed, but soundly spanked as well. Sir Barrett takes her as his captive bride, but when she shows real terror at the prospect of consummating their marriage, he offers her a bargain. She will offer her body to him and accept the pleasurable torments he inflicts, but he will not claim her fully until she aches for it so badly she begs him. Certain she will do no such thing, Daisy agrees, but can she resist the knight's seduction?
Sir Barrett unwound the ribbon binding her wrists, then loosened the tie that held her bodice. She caught the edges of it before it fell open and backed away.
He allowed her retreat, stripping off his tunic and then undershirt.
“Sir Barrett...my lord husband?”
He smiled indulgently at her. “Yes, love?”
“I-I cannot lay with you.”
His brows drew together. “You can and you must, else the marriage will not be complete.”
Her mind searched about for something to say. “I mean, I cannot tonight,” she ad libbed.
“Uh, well, you see...I have my monthly courses. So you’ll have to wait.”
“I will punish you for that lie,” he said without any trace of anger. He stepped toward her. “I think you must want to be spanked again. Did you enjoy it, little one?”
Again the strange slithering sensation in her belly. She backed up until she hit the wall. “No! Of course I didn’t. Why do you think it’s a lie?” she asked, desperately continuing the pretense, though it would be easy enough for him to disprove.
“I have already had your bottom bare once today. Have you forgotten? I suppose I did not make enough of an impression.” He sauntered closer. “What is it, Daisy?” he asked, his voice gentle. “Are you afraid I’m too big? That I will hurt you?”
She seized on his suggested reason. “Yes, sir,” she said, nodding vigorously. “You are far too large.” She blushed furiously when she realized he may have meant his manhood, not his entire stature.
He smiled, reaching her and wrapping his warm palms around her waist. “I promise I will make it as pleasant as possible, my sweet wife. There may be a little pain, but only the first time. And I assure you it ends with a great deal of pleasure.”
She shook her head, blinking back tears. “Please...I don’t want to. Please don’t make me.”
He frowned, looking genuinely concerned. Cupping her chin, he lifted it. “You are truly terrified, aren’t you?”
The tears began to spill. She dropped her eyes and nodded.
“Of me or of the marriage act?”
“Not of you,” she said, her voice wavering.
“Look at me,” he murmured.
With great effort, she lifted her gaze.
“Did something happen to you to make you so afraid?”
