I have always enjoyed Celeste Jones’ contemporary spanking romance stories, so I was very excited to get my hands on her first regency book. I loved it! The heroine, an English lady, suddenly comes under the authority of her husband’s distant cousin, Thomas, who happens to be a barbaric American. Katherine’s future depends on Thomas, and he arrives in London not quite understanding his new position, and not expecting to have to deal with his cousin’s widow. They pair clash immediately, but at the same time sparks fly. To Lady Katherine’s dismay, she discovers Thomas won’t put up with bad behavior, and he soon spanks her for trying to manipulate her way into his good graces. I loved the main characters and their interactions with one another, and of course the spanking and the sex scenes were hot. I especially loved how Thomas handled the scandal at the end of the book. He was a great hero and exactly what Katherine needed in her life. Lady Katherine’s Comeuppance is a well-written regency romance with plenty of tension, humor, a naughty scandal, disciplinary spanking, and sensual scenes sure to keep you reading until the last page.
Hot. Sweet. Authentic. When Lady Katherine's husband dies before she can produce a son, his title and estate passes to a distant relative--horror of horrors, a barbarian--an American! But the young dowager is determined to maintain her place in Society, even if it means seducing the new earl. Thomas is stunned to discover all that he has inherited--including responsibility for the late earl's widow. She might be attractive and he might be attracted to her, but he isn't about to let her use her wiles on him. I can't say what I liked most about Lady Katherine's Comeuppance because there were so many things. First, it's a well-written piece of romantic spanking fiction. The writing flows, making it a delight to read. Second, it focuses on story and doesn't use plot merely as a device upon which to hang a spanking. Third, the spanking and sex scenes feel natural and arise organically out of the plot. Fourth, both the hero and the heroine are nicely flawed and likable. The hero himself is a refreshing nice guy who suffers bouts of self-doubt Fifth, the historical aspects of this story feel authentic, in word and tone. Lady Katherine is a book that crosses genres--even if you don't normally read spanking romance, this one will still appeal. It's a hot read about a sweet romance.
