Welcome to Day 13 of the Spanking A to Z Challenge!
M is for McKay...Casey McKay and her new release, His Rebellious Queen!
Casey McKay is here today to tell us all about her hot new release, His Rebellious Queen! But before she does, I just want to mention that Casey also has a FREE story on Amazon this weekend, Taming His Queen, which is a short story with the same characters from His Rebellious Queen.
Hi Sue! Thanks for letting me come over today to share an excerpt from my new book His Rebellious Queen.
Lyra's gotten herself into some hot water with her husband. They come from different planets and she's still trying to get used to his old-fashioned ways. Astor remains undeterred by her protests. Here is an excerpt where they try to hash out their differences. Astor even offers Lyra a friendly compromise...
He used their telepathic link, but she didn't acknowledge him, didn't even flinch. In fact, it seemed to echo back to him as if he were yelling into an empty room. She had shut him out. "What are you thinking?" he pressed.
She seemed caught off guard by his question, as if she had been lost in her own thoughts. Snapping back she fixed him with a look, "I was thinking of all the Cassians in the universe I got myself the one who spanks."
His lips quirked at her sassy comment, at the same time he reached up and pulled her down across his thighs. She let out a yelp of surprise and braced her hands against the floor as he adjusted her. Pushing her skirts back up he caressed her creamy globes and she stiffened. "I am not the only Cassian that spanks. On our planet that's how we keep order. We're protectors and warriors, but it is hard to protect unruly subjects."
She looked over her shoulder and glared back at him, "Well on my planet we don't beat women."
He would hardly call this beating, and he was pretty sure they were both in agreement that she needed it, she wasn't even putting up a fight. The fear in the room had completely dissipated, she was resigned to her fate. "I guess we'll have to find a compromise then," he suggested and her look turned hopeful. "Anytime you are disrespectful, like yelling at me and another person, I will put you over my knee and punish you thoroughly."
She narrowed her eyes at him, "So what's the compromise?"
"If you behave, then I will not spank you," he said, allowing his lips to tilt into a smirk.
She dropped her gaze and hung her head, muttering something under her breath. Drawing back his hand he let it fall against her naked cheeks in a loud crack. She cried out in response and tried to reach her hand back to cover but he caught it and held it by her side. "Wait! I thought I was allowed an appeal?"
Now he really did smile, but she wasn't looking. He thought she had abandoned the idea of talking herself out of punishment. "I'm waiting," he said.
Craning her neck around again she gave him a wide eyed look, "Can't you let me up?"
He shook his head, "You can tell me from there."
This time she really did sigh, and roll her eyes. He itched to remind her that she was in no position to become exasperated with him. In time she would learn to surrender to his discipline.
Blurb for His Rebellious Queen:
Lyra didn't expect her arranged marriage to be easy. But she also didn't think it was going to be so hard. Moving to a distant planet to become queen was one thing. Learning to take orders from her Alpha, warrior husband was quite another.
Astor knew from the moment he was appointed king there would be no other woman for him. Fulfilling a promise from his past to protect and keep her safe, he claims Lyra as his wife and queen. When she routinely skirts the rules and defies his orders, he realizes he will need to take his feisty wife in hand in the way the Cassians have done for centuries.
But when a plot for revolution follows the new queen and the secrets they're both keeping become exposed, will Astor be able to convince his rebellious queen that they are on the same side or will Lyra's trust come too little too late?
His Rebellious Queen is a sci fi romance about love, trust, and starting over.
