One of my favorite moments in The Count's Discipline is the first spanking Count Robert ever administers, which he bestows upon his new wife's handmaid Marguerite after the countess herself has refused to accept his chastening hand:
As Robert began to practice, for the first time, the disciplinary art for which he would one day be more famous than he would have wished, upon the young bottom of Marguerite, the girl's sobs were transformed into a low panting. Robert had always imagined what a bare female bottom under his corrective hand might feel like; the sensation surpassed his fondest dreams.
Marguerite, who had been saying, "Oh, please, sir. . . it hurts. . . please, stop. . . your lady wife. . .," was now saying only "My lord. . . my lord. . . ."Here's the blurb (click here to buy the book at Amazon!):
When Robert de Lourcy’s wife spurns his desire to spank her, the young count contents himself with disciplining other women of the court, until a rash decision to chastise the women of a captured castle arouses the ire of the local bishop and Robert is forced to seek absolution. In an act of penance, he visits a cathedral and stumbles upon a young girl named Sophia who has 0been set upon by robbers. Remembering his promise make amends for his sins, Robet takes pity on the destitute child, placing her in a convent so that she may be properly educated.
When Sophia comes of age, the nuns at the convent grow more firm with her. The young woman is simultaneously drawn to their discipline but also unconvinced that their motivations are particularly noble. After Sophia’s education is complete, Robert brings her into his home to serve as his secretary. Though he has decided to never spank another woman again, when Sophia begs him to chastise her as the nuns did he cannot resist the opportunity to take her over his knee.
The two begin a happy relationship based on Sophia’s acceptance of the count’s discipline, but he remains devoted to his wife until she dies tragically in childbirth. After that sad event, Sophia expects the count to marry another noblewoman, but will that new wife be jealous and send her away? Is she doomed to be cast back onto the streets from whence she came, or will Robert break the shackles of society and wed a commoner?
Publisher’s Note: The Count’s Discipline is an erotic novel that includes spankings, anal play, graphic sexual scenes, and more. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.
Also note that this book is written with a unique style. The story is told through a modern woman who has discovered an account of the life of Robert de Lourcy which was written by his secretary and chronicler, Sophia.
