The Duke and the Thief tablet

Miss Eloise was a vision. Adam paused in the doorway to take stock and gather his wits.

Gone was the gaudy, provocative gown. The girl now wore a plain white nightgown that flowed to her ankles, buttoned up to the neck and tightly gathered at the wrists. She stood beside the foot of her bed, her hands folded before her and her waist-length ebony tresses loose about her shoulders and back. Her small, elegant hands were clasped at her waist and her bare toes peeked out from beneath the hem of her nightgown.

The whole effect was one of modesty, decency, and almost childlike innocence. Where downstairs in the parlour she had played the shameless harlot and gloried in that role, now she exuded purity and meekness. As he watched, she sank slowly to her knees and bowed her head. She laced her fingers together in a semblance of prayer.

“Very nice,” he breathed. Adam approached her and slowly circled the small form kneeling before him. He took a handful of her hair and lifted it, tested the weight of it before allowing the soft strands to slip from his fingers and cascade once more down her narrow back. He was uncertain which persona he preferred, the bawdy strumpet or the virginal maiden, and he had no doubt there was much more in her repertoire.

“Tell me about yourself,” he murmured.

“I was told you wished to see me, my lord. That I had displeased you in some way. Perhaps your bed was not made to your liking, or your boots were not polished properly. I… I had gone to bed, but when Mrs. Trott, the housekeeper, told me that you required my presence here in your chamber I felt I should hurry in order not to further incur your displeasure.”

Ah, the errant housemaid. Adam smiled. His work was not usually so pleasant in nature. He would enjoy this particular contract.

“Quite so. And tell me, what are you wearing under that nightgown?”

“Mrs. Trott is quite insistent that we do not wear anything beneath our night attire, sir. It is not healthy, she says.”

Adam silently blessed the fictitious Mrs. Trott.

“You are quite right regarding the reasons I summoned you here. My boots were positively dull when I came to wear them this evening, and you may see for yourself the parlous state of my bed. This just will not do. I have already had cause to warn you on these matters.”

She began to wring her hands most prettily. Eloise peeped up at him, her expression one of entreaty and supplication. “I know, my lord. I am so very sorry…”

“Sorry is not good enough.”

“I…I know, sir,” sniffled Eloise.

“You are to receive a spanking, my girl. A hard and very thorough spanking. This is necessary in order to teach you the importance of diligence and attention to detail in your work here. I shall not tolerate sloppiness such as I have seen today.”

“I’m sorry…” Eloise’s voice raised a little and her sniffles increased. The wench really was very good at this.

“I shall spank you first with my hand, then, when I consider you properly chastised, I shall finish the job off with this.” He picked up a hairbrush that had been lying upon a small dressing table. It was quite heavy, the handle and back fashioned out of bone and he knew it would deliver a solid whack when called into service.

He was gratified to see Eloise’s eyes widen a little. Despite her wealth of experience, she was far from oblivious to the discomfort he was about to mete out.

“You will remove your nightgown, then stand in the corner over there. I would like you to face the wall and lean forward a little, sufficient to present your bottom to me. Whilst you wait there for me to be ready for you, you will consider your misdemeanours and the punishment to come.”

“But, my lord. I have nothing on underneath. I would be quite naked.”

“Disobedient and lazy servants are punished when naked. You know this.”

“Yes, sir.” She pouted prettily.

“Then get to it,” he snapped. “You have until I count to five, then if you are not standing naked in the corner as I have directed you will find yourself introduced to my riding crop as well this night. Do I make myself clear?”

The Duke and the Thief cover

Though she works two jobs and earns enough to keep herself off the streets of Victorian-era London, twenty-one-year-old Eloise Smith has developed a naughty habit of stealing trinkets from those around her. When a gentleman who introduces himself as the Duke of Savoy takes an interest in Eloise, he decides to put a stop to her thieving with the aid of his riding crop.

The duke knows how to deal with a young lady in need of stern correction, and when Eloise is caught with yet another item that doesn’t belong to her, she is chastised even more shamefully. As she is forced to confess the full extent of her misdeeds with her well-punished bottom still on display, Eloise cannot help longing to be claimed hard and thoroughly, but the man who has set out to tame her has a secret of his own. Will the truth bring their newfound romance to an end?

The laces were fiddly, the layers of skirts a nuisance and she wished that Madame Irene had not cinched her so tight. However, once the corset fell away, she was able to take a deep breath and the lungful calmed her. Throughout her less than graceful stripping, His Grace, the Duke of Savoy, looked on with immense amusement.

“Dear me, that was hardly done well, was it?” He loosened his waistcoat and rolled up his sleeves.

“I’m sorry, Your Grace,” she mumbled.

“Speak up.”

“I am sorry, Your Grace. Would you like me to get dressed and do it again?” She risked a little impertinence; what gentleman did not like a little riposte?

He narrowed his eyes, but she thought beneath the veneer of his strict face, he might be laughing gently. Or at least, that was what she hoped she saw.

“Kindly, young lady, avail yourself over my lap at once.” He patted his knees.

“Sir. Your Grace.” She dashed to his side and bent. The chair was low and she ended up on her knees with her head nearly touching the rug.

He hooked his arm around her waist. Below, where her belly rested on his thigh, she felt a movement, the stirring of his invisible cock. How long must I wait?

He stroked a few circles around each lobe. “Spread your legs so that I can see your cunt.”

She dared not hesitate a fraction of a second and she shuffled her knees apart and lifted her bottom higher.

“Excellent,” he said. “Would it help if I pinned your legs beneath mine?”

“Probably, Your Grace,” she agreed. She was a terrible wriggler.

“I thought as much.” He raised his leg and pushed the backs of her knees down under it. “Let’s begin, shall we?”

“Yes, please, Your Grace.”

The formula was set, the preludes complete. She inhaled, screwed her eyes shut, and readied herself for the first smack. It knocked the wind out of her lungs as he bounced his hand back and forth between her buttocks without pausing. She squealed, surprised at the energy and vigour of his arm. After their meeting at the Velvet Glove, he clearly had a measure of her endurance and intended to test it.

“Argh,” she cried out. The tears confused her. Why did they fall so easily for this one person? She usually had no problem holding them in check and quite often had to rely on the crocodile version if the client insisted she sobbed. The wetness dripped down her cheeks and off the end of her nose.

He continued, unperturbed by her fuss and futile attempts at squirming. She tried to think of snow or the cold Thames, but all that came to mind was a blacksmith’s forge and a baker’s oven—her bottom was on fire and yet, she could not bring herself to call a halt. Why?

“Tell me again about that first spanking. What did you do, Eloise?”
