Sue Lyndon & Celeste Jones
Orphaned and living on the streets of London, life held little hope for Cammie. That is, until Miss Wickersham took her to Talcott House, where the unfortunate are given everything they need…and then some…to become proper little ladies for the papas selected for them by Miss Wickersham.
Ever since her arrival at Talcott House, Cammie has dreamed of the day she would belong to a papa of her very own. A husband to love and protect her for the rest of her days.
Lord Alexander Cavendish has longed for a little girl to spoil and cherish. When Miss Wickersham introduces him to Cammie, it’s love at first sight. However, he is not one to spare the rod and when Cammie disobeys, he does not hesitate to bare her bottom and impose proper punishment.
In Papa’s arms…and bed…Cammie finally experiences the love and safety she has craved. And when Papa takes his bride over his knee for well deserved discipline, Cammie’s body responds in a most unladylike manner.
Despite his words of devotion, Cammie wonders if a high-born man such as Lord Cavendish can truly be happy with a girl from the streets.
In order to secure his love, she is determined to follow Papa’s Rules.
“Sir?” Cammie asked, her expression uncertain.
“Yes, my dear?”
“If you, um, have a naughty chair, I will go sit on it. I…I am truly sorry to have disappointed you.”
Naughty chair? His interest piqued, he narrowed his eyes at her. “Is that how Miss Wickersham deals with you when you’ve been naughty? Sends you to sit in a naughty chair?”
“Well, sir, sometimes.” She appeared to be hesitating, and twisted her fingers together, fidgeting in place as she glanced from side to side. A sheen of moisture glistened in her eyes. “It’s just, please oh please don’t give me a spanking, sir. Not today. Tomorrow, perhaps, if you must. But please not today.”
She reached around herself and cupped her bottom cheeks in the most adorable manner.
“Cammie, why don’t you want a spanking today? We’re to be married in a mere few hours. Is it that you don’t wish for me to lay a hand on you until we are wed? Or is there another reason? I want the truth. We must be honest with one another, or our marriage will surely fail.”
Still cupping her bottom cheeks, she peered up at him with a look of increasing trepidation. “Oh, please, sir. Please don’t make me tell you why.”
“Cammie,” he said kindly, though with a certain amount of steel in his voice, “I am starting to think something is terribly wrong, and I am worried for you. You will tell me what is the matter this instant. Start talking. Now.”
She finally released her bottom and crossed her arms over her chest, hugging herself. “I-I am usually a very, very well-behaved little girl. I swear it. But yesterday I got in trouble with the nurse and got a spanking. My bottom is still quite sore, and I suspect it’s probably still a bit pinkened, sir, and I’m mortified by the prospect of you seeing it. I am ashamed to come to you like this, sir, with an already punished bottom. I hope you won’t think I’m always into trouble and decide to send me back to Talcott House. Oh please, please just make me sit on a naughty chair. Or stand in a corner. Spank me tomorrow, if you must, but please don’t lift my skirts and add to my soreness just yet.” She sniffled and lowered her head. A lone tear carved a path down her cheek, and Alexander found himself moving forward to brush that tear away.
He gathered her close to his chest, and she soon loosened her arms, letting them fall to her sides and allowing him to hold her closer and tighter. God, he loved the feel of her in his arms. He rested his chin atop her head. She fit against him perfectly. As if they were meant to be. His heart broke knowing that she still harbored doubts that he would keep her. Twice now she had voiced her concerns that he might send her back to Talcott House. Didn’t she know he’d been waiting for her for what felt like forever? Didn’t she know how eagerly he’d anticipated this day—the day they would become husband and wife, papa and little girl?
