Cover & Excerpt Reveal
Reserved to the point of being asocial, Lord Westerfield never attended balls or even considered taking a wife until he met Miss Kitty Stanley and his ordered world turned on end. Determined to have the beautiful and animated sister of his friend from the gambling hall, but doubting his ability to effectively court her, Westerfield strikes a bargain with her brother for her hand.
When the gentlemen present Kitty with the dealing, she is furious with them both for neglecting to consult her, but her brother insists he will withdraw his support if she does not comply. Angry, she acts out at a ball, causing a scandal that mushrooms further when Lord Westerfield drags her away to his home unescorted for a spanking.
Baring her for the discipline, Westerfield is swept away by desire, taking her innocence and completing the ruin of her reputation. He offers to release her from the betrothal contract, but her brother insists instead on a hasty marriage. As they attempt to recover from the scandal that becomes known as “the Westerfield Affair,” their marriage is clouded by his shame and her insecurities. Will they have the courage to move past their rough beginning to create the loving marriage they both crave?

Kitty blinked up at the worried face of Lord Westerfield. She appeared to be on the floor, cradled in his arms. Her bottom was throbbing—a tingling burn to remind her of the humiliating position in which she had just been.
“You fainted,” he explained at once. “I opened your corset so you could breathe.”
“Oh,” she said, coming to a full realization of her new predicament. Though her dress was still on, the bodice was unhooked in the back, her corset was unlaced, and her drawers were still down around her thighs.
A hysterical giggle bubbled up in her throat.
“I'm sorry. I should have considered the effect of discipline on your breathing before I took you over my knee. That was very stupid of me.”
She peered up at him. She felt quite a bit more like herself now and was beginning to fully comprehend just how far this evening had diverged from normal. “Well, I've come around, will you let me up?”
“Are you going to spank me again?”
His mouth twitched with what appeared to be humor. “No.”
“I rather like holding you like this.”
She bit her lip, trying not to smile.
“We should not be in here alone.”
“No, we shouldn't,” he agreed.
“So will you let me up?”
“No,” he refused flatly.
She rolled her eyes and reached up, plucking the end of his cravat and yanking it, so it came untied. It was a bold to tease him now, considering he'd shown no compunction in turning her over his knee, but his eyes crinkled with amusement and he smiled down at her.
“Silly girl,” he murmured.
