Taunted by another young woman for not yet having a beau, Claudia flippantly states that she is secretly betrothed. Having this imaginary fiancé serving his country far away allows her the freedom to enter rather explicit entries into her journal to satisfy her disbelieving friends. Imagine her shock when this fabricated fiancé materializes in the flesh. Claudia finds herself trapped by her own foolishness into a marriage with a handsome military gentleman, Colonel Guy French. Though she barely knows him, neither can deny the overwhelming physical attraction they experience.
She soon discovers that he has very particular ideas on how his new bride should behave. Watching Imogene and her friends within the 'Spanked Wives Society' receive husbandly discipline, Claudia has other plans. Considering herself a modern woman, she elicits a rash promise from her colonel to refrain from spanking her once they are wed. The old adage: be careful what you wish for, comes strongly into play as Claudia soon finds herself regretting her hasty decision. As events beyond her control pull them apart, can she alter her husband's military methods of punishing her that leave her feeling abandoned and alone?
Will the colonel be able to set aside his beliefs in order to prove to his naughty bride that she means far more to him than any of his recruits? Though Claudia wishes him to change his mind and use a discipline that she now wholeheartedly desires, one which ordains him to take her across his sturdy thigh and soundly spank her mischievous bottom, will they be given another chance, or will it be far too late?
Join familiar faces as we once again journey into the English past with another of Vanessa Brooks' naughty but light-hearted and romantic Georgian adventures.

As a Georgian gentleman, Sir Thomas Wiggington expects to be master within his own home; after all, everyone knows that an Englishman's home is his castle. However, when he weds Lady Margaret Beauchamp, it appears that she has other ideas about who should be in charge. Thomas finds that his patience as a gentleman is sorely tried and tested. Lady Margaret is of a peevish and sour disposition, and she has as low an opinion of her new husband as she has a high opinion of herself! In fact, she is downright furious to find herself married to a mere 'Sir', no matter how well- connected Thomas might be.
Margaret dislikes almost everyone and almost everyone, it seems, dislikes her. Sparks fly from the very beginning of their marriage. Margaret quickly discovers that she has misjudged her new husband - he is not the easygoing milksop she first took him to be. When she defies him the moment he carries her across the threshold, she is stunned by his swift reaction in tossing her over his knee. Being soundly spanked was not quite the response she was expecting from the polite man who had courted her so shyly before their nuptials.
Despite her hateful behavior, Thomas deeply loves his new bride. He has absolutely no doubt that he'll be able to uncover the loving woman he knows lies deep inside the shell that Margaret presents to the world. Under his strict discipline and passionate lovemaking, he hopes to remove the stinger from the wasp that is his bride and find his sweet honey bee.
