Overview

Trapped in a crevice after a carriage accident, Amanda Downy is not sure whether she'll ever see the light of day again. With her tongue loosened by a fellow passenger's flask of brandy, she reveals several well-guarded secrets about her life as a governess at Colonel Watson's residence, including the fact that she falsified her references to gain her employment.

The next morning Amanda is horrified when she finds that the passenger who saved her life after the carriage crash is sitting at the breakfast table at Colonel Watson's estate, and it appears that he is the long-absent Colonel himself! Amanda is certain that she will be immediately dismissed, but the Colonel has a different sort of discipline in mind for her...

The Colonel soon learns that in spite of the deceitful manner with which she obtained the position, Miss Downy is an excellent governess and is much loved by his children. After a firm dose of the leather strap on her bare bottom, he lets her know that she may keep her position as long as she is truthful with him in the future. As time passes, though, the Colonel finds himself thinking of Amanda as he has not thought about any woman since his beloved wife passed away. Though he has no intention of ever marrying again, he cannot deny his growing need for her.

Amanda has a longstanding dislike for stiff military men, yet she warms to the Colonel, discovering that underneath his gruff exterior he is kind and generous. As she wonders if the attraction is mutual, another suitor makes his interest known. Should she accept his offer? Or should she wait to see if the Colonel will ever make his move?

This book contains sexual scenes and spankings, including domestic discipline in a historical setting. If such material offends you, please do not buy this book!

A charming regency romp with plenty of spanking and no sex until marriage. The sexual tension is delicious and the spankings are satisfying.

In a dire financial situation, Amanda is forced to fabricate references and seek employment as a governess. But after a carriage accident, when a fellow passengers gives her brandy to warm her up, she confesses her misdeeds, unaware one of the other passengers is her employer whom she’s never met. When the Colonel discovers his governess is the woman aboard the carriage, he implements corporal discipline and spanks her for her deceit. Over time, the Amanda comes to learn that beneath his harsh methods and gruff exterior is a loving, caring man, and he gradually becomes quite taken by his young governess. Historical fiction and domestic discipline go well when paired and this one is no exception. It’s a fast-paced, interesting read, and I found the spanking scenarios to be believable. If you enjoy domestic discipline or spanking romances, pick this one up. You’ll be as pleased as the Colonel!

Here is another Historical Romance by Renee Rose what I totally enjoyed! I was thinking to myself, what is it about Renee’s books that I seem to enjoy so much, because as I have said in the past, I don’t normally read Historical. Is it the characters? And the answer would have to be yes. The chemistry between Amanda and Charles is evident from the first time they met. The story seamlessly sets it’s self-up from the first chapter when we meet them after Amanda’s carriage breaks down and The Colonel stops to help. We immediately connect with Amanda as she is telling her story to the hardships she and her sister and mother have endured after the death of her father and the family lost everything. Amanda doesn’t wallow in self-pity but pulls up her big girl panties and does what needs to get done. She lies to get a job as a governess for two little one’s whose father is absent due to the war. Now after having a few slips of Brandy, feeling bad about what she had to do, she confess this while waiting to be rescued. The next morning as Amanda walks into the dining room, she is not only surprised that her employer, the children’s father is back, but he is also The Colonel who helped her last night and heard everything she said. Again, Amanda pulls up her big girl panties and faces the Colonel in his study to accept the fact that she may lose her job, but to her amazement, she leaves the study with her job in tack but a very sore bottom. It was refreshing to read a heroine who is strong and independent, but then doesn’t whine. The Colonel is a man of great character as well, as he sees Amanda’s plight and wants to help her all the while fighting his attraction to her. I love how the relationship between Charles and Amanda builds slowly and it also involves the children, after all, she is the Governess. It was a joy to watch these two people fight and try to deny their attraction to each other.
