Claiming Their Maiden is a steamy fantasy ménage novella that includes several spankings. The story is written by Sue Lyndon.
Despite growing up as a nearly friendless orphan, Amelia had managed to carve out a meager existence. Then, without warning, Amelia found herself falsely accused of a terrible crime and forced to flee for her life into the vast, dangerous forest outside her village. Alone, terrified, and pursued by both man and beast, the end seemed near for Amelia… until she fell from a tree into the arms of a towering hulk of a man and fainted in panic.
She is pleasantly surprised to awaken in a warm, soft bed in an ancient castle deep in the forest, and she is even more surprised when she learns that her rescuer, Trent, and his brother, Gavin, are the lords of this castle, but the truly shocking revelation comes when the barbarian brothers inform her that she has been promised to them by the Goddess and that she is to be their wife.
Like all men of their kind, Trent and Gavin were born as twin brothers, and the magic of their people will bind them forever to their chosen mate. With the promise of the Goddess backed up by fierce desire for the beautiful Amelia, both brothers are delighted to claim this unspoiled maiden as their own. The brothers are fully prepared to
teach their new bride obedience, and they know that nothing will impart that lesson better than a good, hard spanking on her bare bottom.
Amelia wants to hate Trent and Gavin with every fiber of her being, but their firm discipline is coupled with kindness, concern, and a deep and powerful love that she never imagined she would experience from any man, let alone two great warriors who are both so handsome it nearly takes her breath away. Though it fills her with shame, when the time comes for them to claim their beautiful new wife—each in turn and then both at once—she cannot help but yearn to be taken long and hard.
This story captured my attention right from the beginning. Poor Amelia is accused of the brutal murder of the one person who took an interest in her. She flees deep into the forest where the creatures are scarier than the villagers she left behind.
Good thing for Amelia she is rescued by a pair of Banded brothers – one of the light, one of the night. Of course, the brothers, Trent and Gavin, are both huge, handsome, and dominant. Amelia manages to quickly get herself into trouble for which she receives one of many spankings.
I enjoyed reading about how Amelia grew to first trust and then love the brothers. Ms. Lyndon’s spanking scenes were – duh, of course – hot and sexy! The world she created was intriguing and unique. This was a refreshing read!
4 out of 5 stars!
