Someone's in Trouble #MFRWHooks #Waterloo #Veteran #trouble

Happy New Decade.
I'm delighted to share another excerpt from my book The Viscount's Pet
Please read and enjoy


Stonehurst woke with the dawn. After strapping on his artificial leg, he took a stroll before breakfast. The inn’s cobbled courtyard was deserted, so he walked along a narrow alleyway that led to the sea. A faint smell of seaweed greeted him as he emerged by the beach. Well past high tide, only a few boats remained in the harbor.

A weary figure trudged toward the stragglers. Julianna Halstead! Alone, and her furtive manner suggested she was up to mischief. Her tawny beauty drew him, but her morals disgusted him. And why didn’t her brother make her behave?

She roused something strong and possessive inside him. Every cell in his body cried out for him to dominate and claim her. She came in layers, each one more fascinating than the other. He could drown in her complexity.

Predatory and dominant, he prowled after her. Raw need shot through him. He wanted to care for her and stop her taking foolish risks. If another man hurt or abused her, he’d unleash his savage side.

Cool air cleared his brain. Susanna Halstead had manipulated him and almost trapped him into marriage. His actions had been stupid and naïve. 
He’d never been so relieved as when his grandparents whisked him away to London. Only when they bought him a commission and sent him to war, they could have signed his death warrant.

No wonder his father had raged against their plans. They’d taken extreme steps to keep him out of a title-hungry female’s clutches.

Now, ten years after casting him off, his father demanded that he come home. Stonehurst would ride to St. Keverne today—or maybe tomorrow—and get the meeting over with.

After the incident with Susanna, he’d never trust Julianna with his heart. Better to spank some sense into her and hand her over to her brother. 
There’d be a reckoning between him and Kit Halstead, too. No decent man would let his sister run wild.

When her brother tries to force her into a marriage with a detestable baron, Julianna Halstead flees the family estate she has helped manage since the death of her parents. But as she makes her escape late at night, Juliana’s carelessness nearly results in her being trampled by a galloping horse, and the steed’s handsome rider takes it upon himself to correct her right then and there.

Though having her bottom bared and soundly spanked on the side of the road leaves Juliana blushing crimson, the punishment arouses her intensely and her body’s helpless response cannot be hidden. To make matters worse, the gentleman over whose lap she was so firmly chastised turns out to be none other than Viscount Stonehurst, someone she has known since childhood.

When Stonehurst learns of Juliana’s predicament, he decides to make her his bride. She will be no ordinary wife, however. She will be something much more shameful. But even as she is leashed, collared, and put on display in a cage wearing only a tail, then brought out to be used in ways no proper lady should enjoy, will Juliana come to love her new life as the viscount’s pet?

Publisher’s Note: The Viscount’s Pet is a stand-alone novel which shares the Regency-era setting of Wickedly Used and His Innocent Bride. It includes spankings and sexual scenes. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.
