I am so excited to share my blog with Renee Rose today!
Her new book, Humbled, a spanking romance set in the French Revolutionary period is awesome!
I loved the characters! The Aristocratic woman who flees for her life, losing her family, her home, everything!
The blacksmith (a commoner, who owes her his life.), who vows to save her and get her to safety.
The passion that turns to love.
And the conflicting emotions of two people from “different worlds” fighting to see if they truly belong together.
I LOVED IT!
Hot sex, awesome story line, great emotions, and super spankings. (Hehe, you can’t have a great Renee Rose book with some of that, right?)
Mmmmm, the spankings were delicious. The sex was hot! I loved the whole package!
Thanks so much for having me today, Katherine. I loved this time period, and really enjoyed writing this one!
Here is one of the earlier scenes, that sets the tone for the story.
“Very well. Get it through your head that the rule of the aristocracy in France has ended. The servant today became the master. If you wish my assistance, you must obey my bidding.”
She felt heat flood her cheeks. Were his intentions honest? Or did he mean to lure her away from anyone who might help so he might take his time humbling her? Exacting some kind of revenge on the privilege to which she had been born?
She lifted her chin. “And if I do not?”
He gave a half-smile. “Then you will be thrashed, like any servant who misbehaves.”
Her bottom clenched convulsively and the heat in her face flushed through her limbs, pooling between her legs. The idea of being taken to task by the handsome peasant sent a wash of shame and a prickle of something altogether disturbing through her body. They stared at one another; he appeared to be waiting for her to test his declaration, but she did not dare. Contemplating a thrashing by him made her go weak.
Sentenced to die at age eleven for stealing a pig, Jean-Claude receives an unexpected reprieve when a young aristocrat girl takes the blame instead. When the mobs of the French Revolution fall upon her château years later, Jean-Claude knows he must save her and repay his debt, but as they begin their long flight to safety he makes it clear he is not her servant and he will deal firmly with any disobedience. Though he initially intends to send her off by ship, the beautiful, feisty Corinne inspires a fierce protectiveness in Jean-Claude that makes it hard to say goodbye.
Corinne is alternately infuriated and attracted to the handsome peasant who has no qualms about turning her over his knee and spanking her bare bottom when she steps out of line. When he ends up joining her on a ship to New Orleans, their futures become inextricably intertwined, but can a common-born blacksmith and the daughter of a lord find enough common ground to make a permanent match?
