About Louise Taylor
I'm Louise Taylor, and I love writing historical romance novels! My first series, the Victorian Vices series, are now available on Amazon. My next series, The Ruttingdon Club series, will be available from December 2015. All my novels will be published by the lovely people at Blushing Books.
All my books have elements of power exchange, spanking and BDSM but none of my heroines are weak-willed or easily dominated - they make their men work for their love!
I live on the beautiful Welsh coast, and I love walking the cliff tops and visiting some of our wonderful historical ruins. I get my best ideas when I'm in the great outdoors and you can usually find me chasing after the piece of paper I've just scribbled my notes on!
I live in a late Victorian house with wonderfully high ceilings and no central heating - thank goodness for my fabulous fireplace! I'm owned by Alfred The Great, an enormous tom cat with very decided ideas about who gets to sit on the right side of the sofa and how long I am allowed to stay in bed in the morning!

Feigning illness to avoid wedding Radcliffe, Cassandra comes under the care of Dr. Henry Sutherland, a Ruttingdon Club member and a specialist in the treatment of female hysteria. He can tell immediately that she is faking her symptoms, but the thought of a week with the beautiful woman at his private sanatorium is just too tempting to resist.
But Cassandra needs a decent, agreeable husband, not a week at a remote therapy spa, where there are few people at all to be found, let alone any unattached men of good breeding. Still, that is where she ends up, although she has no intention of remaining there. Her repeated escape attempts from the place find her over the handsome doctor's knee three times before she realizes that the man to save her and her father might just be right in front of her!

In the case of innocent vicar’s daughter Faith Halstead, governess to a middle class family with a marriageable son, one only finds out he is a cad after it is too late. Now she is alone in the world, a fallen woman, facing a bleak and uncertain future.
While leaving London in disgrace, a chance encounter on the train lands Faith in front of the darkly dominant Duke of Buckingham. He is in search of a woman to serve as his slave at an upcoming Ruttingdon Club house party, and the shy, modest young woman has unaccountably captured his attention.
Desperate for any excuse not to return home to her harshly judgmental father, Faith rashly promises to serve as the duke’s absolute slave for a week, alone with him at the secluded Ruttingdon Hall.
Will his dark and brutal desires and the oftentimes sweet pain he inflicts upon her ripe body drive her away, or will the awakening desires in her heart seduce her into staying longer with him – perhaps forever?
Publisher’s Note: This book contains adult, consensual spanking and discipline, and graphic descriptions of sexual activity, including breath play in the form of choking. If such material bothers or offends you, please do not purchase.

Now, with the duke bound by Club tradition, Faith is placed in a dangerous position when the evil Sir Leslie decides to snatch her away from the man she loves.
Can the duke overcome a lifetime's strict adherence to his own sense of honor and the rules of the Club? Or will Faith be left to the mercy of the cruel Sir Leslie?

Still, Annabelle’s fondness for exploring the outer limitations of propriety does not imply that she has no desire to find someone in her life strong enough to take her in hand when she has gone too far. Willfully jumping onto the wrong train, and then travelling alone with a handsome stranger to a house party is bad enough behaviour to get her into all sorts of trouble with the people who are putatively in charge of her. But when that stranger expertly takes her over his lap for exactly that wrongful behaviour, and gives her the bare-bottomed, erotic spanking she has always craved, Annabelle knows that she is far out of her depth.
In such company as this man’s, can Annabelle maintain the image of the demure young lady that society demands? Or will this ruffian in gentleman’s garb, who has a gentleman’s manners but not a gentleman’s mannerisms—at least in one very important respect—turn this young lady into the perfect spanking submissive he has always dreamed of? The Duke of Rothmuir, a member of the infamous Ruttingdon Club, is most determined to find out, and Annabelle must decide for herself just how much of this lewd peer’s lascivious but oh, so welcome attentions to her body and soul she can take.

Annabelle is determined to accompany Daniel to meetings of the Club when they are married, but he is unsure whether she can cope with the physical and psychological demands that appearance at club meetings place on females who attend these exotic functions.
Can Annabelle endure the strict training the Club requires? Will she master her fear of bodily exposure in front of strangers? Can she and Daniel build a life together that balances duty to their roles in society with their desire for dark sexual pleasure?

Since Elizabeth speaks French, the girl's native tongue, they quickly bond. Being an inquisitive young woman, however, the new governess all too soon discovers a treasure trove of erotic literature, with an emphasis on spanking, hidden on the premises by the lord of the manor, Joseph, Marquess of Hamilton.
Joseph is a man torn between his parental duty to a daughter of questionable origin, and his loathing for Briarstone; the least favorite of all his estates.

When she is caught, though, and taken to task, Elizabeth has to wonder; is being spanked – however strictly – by the stern and handsome lord truly a punishment at all? And what will become of her when Joseph discovers the shameful secret of her true identity?
Come join Louise Taylor as she takes us back more than a century and a half – to a time when a man was master of the house, and an employee's place was, very often, across his lap – to find the answers.
These very young, very troublesome country cousins arrive as a package deal, along with their older half-sister, Miss Sophia Preston.

Sparks fly as Miss Sophia clashes not only with the duke, a thirty-year-old confirmed bachelor, but also with the duke’s mother, a grande dame in London society. The duchess has little patience with two small, difficult and noisy girls, and even less with their unrefined and yet outspoken country mouse of a half sister.
Still, all the heat and friction produced between those three is nothing compared to the firestorm that ensues when the duke's mistress, a courtesan of the very highest rank and quite full of herself, discovers that the duke is beginning to see Miss Sophia in an entirely different and quite romantic light...
