Greetings! This is Alexis Alvarez, and today I have Ashe Barker visiting my blog to talk about her new release, a romance entitled Her Noble Lords. If you’ve ever wondered what could be sexier than having one hot spanky noble lord to enjoy? How about two? Keep reading to find out all the spicy details. Here’s Ashe with the scoop…
Hi Alexis and thank you so much for inviting me back over to your blog to share a bit from my latest release. Her Noble Lords is an erotic ménage story set in medieval England. It was a lot of fun to write, mainly because I was able to weave in so many of my favourite fantasies – abduction, not one but TWO hot knights with distinctly twitchy palms, a sassy damsel in distress, and of course a lot of spanking.
Here’s the back cover stuff:
After eighteen-year-old Linnet Routh is kidnapped from her home in Wellesworth castle by Ralf, the powerful, handsome Earl of Egremont, and his identical twin brother Piers, it quickly becomes clear to her that the seasoned warriors have mistaken her for someone else. Convinced that she is Lady Eleanor, a noblewoman who was promised in marriage to Ralf yet has refused to wed him, the brothers bring Linnet to a church with plans to compel her to speak her vows.
Linnet attempts to steal a horse from Piers and make her escape, but when she is caught her efforts end up earning her a thorough, humiliating bare-bottom spanking. Though terribly embarrassed by the manner of her chastisement, she cannot help becoming helplessly—and shamefully—aroused by the punishment.
When the brothers recognize the truth of Linnet’s claims at last, she expects to be cast aside as a mere commoner. To her surprise, however, they instead offer to make her their shared bride, and despite her misgivings about the idea Linnet agrees to the union. As they each take their turn to claim her, the pleasure of their dominant lovemaking leaves her yearning to be taken long and hard by both of them at once, and soon a passionate romance has grown between Linnet and her noble lords. But when tragedy strikes will it bring a permanent end to their newfound happiness?
Publisher’s Note: Her Noble Lords is an erotic romance novel that includes spankings, sexual scenes including threesomes, anal play, elements of BDSM, and more. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.
And of course , a steaming hot excerpt to whet the appetite…
“One,” announces Ralf.
I writhe and twist, desperate to escape the next stroke but Ralf holds me in place. The switch whistles through the air again and again. Each time I let out a shriek of pain, but neither man relents. Ralf tightens his grip, stretching me further across the table so my feet can barely touch the floor.
“Five,” he intones. “Six. Seven.”
I am sobbing, my screams subsiding to a despairing, continuous wailing. Still the punishment continues, Piers dropping stroke after stroke across my bottom and the backs of my thighs. The searing pain is awful but the ominous sound of the switch flying through the air is, if anything, even worse. I am pinned in place, I cannot move. Nothing I can do or say will stop this until they are satisfied my punishment is concluded and I know I cannot bear it. My head blurs, the image of Ralf shimmering before my eyes.
“Ten. Hold there.” Ralf’s voice is sharp, his command obeyed. The onslaught pauses.
“Linnet, open your eyes, sweetling.” Ralf’s tone is gentle now. He lets go of one of my hands to cup my jaw. “Look at me, little one.”
It is a struggle but I obey. His face is close to mine, his expression one of concern. “Only five to go. You can do this.”
I shake my head. “No, I…”
“Here, take a few sips.” Piers places a goblet beside my free hand. The wine inside is sweet, refreshing. I manage to swallow a little, then let out a sharp cry as Piers lays his hand on my sore bottom and presses hard.
“The stripes are vivid but your skin is not broken, nor will it be. You will have no lasting scars from this, little maid. Let us press on, I am sure you are as anxious as we are to be done with this.” As he speaks to me he massages my throbbing buttocks, his touch firm. My flesh is burning but despite the discomfort, I do not want him to stop. He does though and waits, expectant, demanding my compliance.
It is enough. I submit.
With a groan of surrender, I allow my head to drop onto the flat table top. “Please, just finish and let me go.”
The sound of the switch is less menacing now, perhaps because I have endured the pain and survived it. I am still surviving, still inching my stubborn way to the end of this ordeal.
“Twelve. Thirteen. Fourteen.”
I hold my breath as the switch snakes through the air for the last time, landing full across both my thighs. It is the hardest stroke yet and brings me up onto my toes with an agonised wail. Then, it is over. Footsteps, a clatter as Piers drops his implement onto the floor beside the settle. He returns to stand behind me. I make no move to get up off the table, though Ralf is no longer holding me there. Instead he has moved to take up position beside his brother and together they survey the damage to my punished bottom.
“Nice arse, Linnet,” observes Piers. “I thought so before but your posterior is truly breath-taking now that it bears the stripes of our discipline. Such a pity you will not be remaining here at Egremont.”
“I am not entirely convinced I should be permitting you to ogle my wife’s delectable body,” puts in Ralf, “although under the circumstances, I daresay my claim is somewhat tenuous.”
“It is, brother, sadly. Do you not have a missive to pen to send to our accommodating priest?”
More about me:
I’ve been an avid reader of fiction for many years, erotic and other genres. I still love reading, the hotter the better. But now I have a good excuse for my guilty pleasure – research.
I tend to draw on my own experience to lend colour, detail and realism to my plots and characters. An incident here, a chance remark there, a bizarre event or quirky character, any of these can spark a story idea.
When not writing – which is not very often these days – my time is divided between my role as resident taxi driver for my teenage daughter, and caring for a menagerie of dogs, tortoises. And a very grumpy cockatiel.
I have twenty eight (at the last count) titles on general release with publishers on both sides of the Atlantic, and I have several more in the pipeline. All my books feature BDSM. I write explicit stories, always hot, but they offer far more than just sizzling sex. I like to read about complex characters, and compelling plots, so that’s what I write too. Strong, demanding Doms are a given, often paired with new submissives who have a lot to learn.
I have a pile of story ideas still to work through, and keep thinking of new ones at the most unlikely moments, so you can expect to see a lot more from me.
Thank you for having me. Happy Reading.
Okay, now it’s Alexis talking again. Thanks, Ashe, for that steamy snippet! Whew. It is just me, or did it get very hot in here just now?
Anyone need a goblet of…wine?
I think the book sounds exciting, hot and a perfect fantasy read along with a nice glass or red (or La Croix, my other personal favorite.) I encourage you to get the book and enjoy it with your own personal beverage of choice. Ashe, great job on the book, and I wish you much success on the release.
