Can a loving hand applied to the naked rear of a peevish woman sweeten her character?

As a Georgian gentleman, Sir Thomas Wiggington expects to be master within his own home; after all, everyone knows that an Englishman’s home is his castle. However, when he weds Lady Margaret Beauchamp, it appears that she has other ideas about who should be in charge. Thomas finds that his patience as a gentleman is sorely tried and tested. Lady Margaret is of a peevish and sour disposition, and she has as low an opinion of her new husband as she has a high opinion of herself! In fact, she is downright furious to find herself married to a mere 'Sir', no matter how well- connected Thomas might be.

Margaret dislikes almost everyone and almost everyone, it seems, dislikes her. Sparks fly from the very beginning of their marriage. Margaret quickly discovers that she has misjudged her new husband – he is not the easygoing milksop she first took him to be. When she defies him the moment he carries her across the threshold, she is stunned by his swift reaction in tossing her over his knee. Being soundly spanked was not quite the response she was expecting from the polite man who had courted her so shyly before their nuptials.

Despite her hateful behavior, Thomas deeply loves his new bride. He has absolutely no doubt that he'll be able to uncover the loving woman he knows lies deep inside the shell that Margaret presents to the world. Under his strict discipline and passionate lovemaking, he hopes to remove the stinger from the wasp that is his bride and find his sweet honey bee.

In this sexy Georgian romp, we meet familiar characters from the prequel story 'His Colonial Rose' co-authored by Vanessa Brooks and Beth Bennett. This is a standalone tale and you do not have to have read 'His Colonial Rose' to enjoy this book.

Disclaimer: Sir Thomas's Bride is a book of deep passion with elements of harsh discipline and explicit sexual scenes, including figging. If any of these offend you, please do not purchase this book.

Chapter One

Lady Margaret shifted uncomfortably. Not for the first time, did she wonder how she came to be in this awkward predicament. She mournfully supposed that fate had dealt her a cruel hand when it coupled her with Sir Thomas Wiggington. How unfair the world could be, she mused with sorrowful self pity.

A soft swishing noise caught her attention and then the stinging whap of a cane slashed her across the tender skin of her virgin buttocks. Lady Margaret was both a virgin to spanking and, as yet, to the touch of a man. She laid face down, silent with shock, as a searing line of pain bit into both her bottom cheeks. Before she could suck any air into her lungs to yell, another strike fell. However, this time she did manage to scream and rather vocally.

Sadly, no one came to her aid—no one cared enough for her person to rush to her side. The only other person in this entire world who might have cared was her mother, Lady Amelia Beauchamp. However, she was many miles away, ensconced in the Dowager House at Longetlestone in the county of Sussex, banished from London by the King and requested by Margaret's bridegroom, the very man who was presently setting fire to her buttocks.

Lady Margaret was all alone and, in her view, at the mercy of a madman, a brute of a man, a man whom she now called husband.

Sir Thomas Wiggington admired his handiwork; he was as skilled with a cane as he was with a rapier in his hand. A row of tidy livid red stripes lay neatly across his bride's pearlescent skin; the next punishing stripe would land on the crease at the top of her legs, twixt her bottom and her thighs. Thomas knew that it would be the most stinging blow of them all. He raised the cane high and flicked his wrist with a practiced hand, the strike coming down with a satisfying whoosh; the ear splitting shriek that his wife gave was most gratifying to the much beleaguered bridegroom.

"Arise now, Margaret, but leave your skirts tucked up to your waist and go and stand in that far corner of the room. Perhaps, madam, the next time you chose to spit in my eye you will understand the consequences of taking such heinous action."

Thomas watched, amused, as his peevish, vinegar tongued wife scuttled over to the far corner of his study without as much as a glance in his direction. She put her face into her hands and wept self piteously.

Thomas took his seat behind the large yew desk and studied her. Thomas knew when he ensnared Lady Margaret that she would take some sweetening. He also knew that she needed to be strongly taken in hand by a man, a man such as himself in fact. A man who had experience of dealing with ill humoured and badly behaved women. Hoydens and hellions had become his study of preference. Thomas had not found one such woman yet who had not responded to his method of a cane as deterrent and his loving attention as reward; carrot and stick in fact.

However, Margaret was made in a mould all of her own; this woman, now his wife, was a veritable viper! Thomas crossed a leg over his knee and sat back enjoying the view of his wife's naked and punished rear end. It was a nicely shaped bottom, round and well padded and scarlet in hue, just as Thomas preferred a woman's arse to be. He grinned; he knew he would turn his peevish Margaret about eventually. Thomas loved teaching nasty, spiteful women of the haute ton to change their ways and a cane was indeed a great deterrent, and ultimately, a sweetener of such sour natured creatures.

Now he had a permanent project—a wife and one that Thomas hoped would eventually come to love him and would produce a family with him. He should have realised that it was too soon to show any romantic gesture toward his bride but it was tradition to carry one's bride over the threshold and Thomas had not expected the gob of saliva that had hit him rather painfully in his eye. He had quite honestly not expected to be spat at by his gently born wife, Lady Margaret Wiggington, nee Beauchamp.

Lady Margaret was unaware of her husband's perusal of her pert rear-end. She was truly shocked by the sudden turn of events that had led to this painful eye opener. One minute Thomas was the mild mannered, stuttering nincompoop who she had previously mocked and derided, and the next, he was this overbearing tyrant who reacted to her mocking remarks by taking the severe punitive measure of caning her. To top it all, this was her wedding day, the only day in her life that she felt she should be treated like a queen!

The startling fact that he had spanked her with a cane even before he had consummated their marriage meant that there was absolutely no question of her accepting him into her boudoir this night. Certainly not after this brutal attack on her poor derriere.

After building herself up into an indignant and self righteous fit of pique, Margaret tossed her head and prepared to shake down her skirts. She would leave this room and this very house. He could not force her to stay. She would leave before he was in truth and before God, her husband. What she wasn't prepared for was the knowledge and experience that Sir Thomas had of churlish ladies such as herself.

As Margaret spun around ready to run, she was met by the wall of Sir Thomas's chest. He placed a hand behind her head to hold her steady and bought his mouth down upon hers. Margaret had never been kissed upon her lips before now, nor anywhere other than upon her hand and so she was unprepared and caught completely by surprise.

The kiss was surprisingly enjoyable and she forgot her temper tantrum and her painful stinging bottom. That was until Sir Thomas chose to remind her of it, by squeezing her seared buttock cheeks. Margaret broke away and lifted her hand to strike Thomas's hateful face but she found her wrist caught fast in his. She was spun about as Sir Thomas walked from the room, towing his venomous and spitting bride along with him. Margaret, furious, had no choice but to follow her new husband. She realised that he was a much stronger man than she had given him credit for and she could not shake his inexorable grip on her wrist.

Thomas dragged Margaret into the withdrawing room and lowered her onto the scroll ended settee, designed in the Greek style that Thomas so admired. He stalked over to the Tantalus and unlocked it with a key, one which he kept safely hidden away from the staff, tucked into his waistcoat pocket at all times. He poured himself a much needed brandy. He did not offer his wife a drink for he knew that she would refuse it. He downed his brandy and left the room, standing behind the door to observe Lady Margaret's actions after his departure.

Sir Thomas watched as his new wife first glanced at the door and then rose, nimbly making her way over to the open decanter holder. She looked tentatively over her shoulder and then picked up the heavy crystal sherry decanter and poured herself a generous measure.

Thomas grinned, jolly good show, he wanted her to have a drink—it would steady her nerves for what was yet to come. He wandered back to his study and tugged on the bell pull and within moments, Gates, his butler, appeared.

"Sir?"

"Gates, please see to it that the cold collation supper that I requested is laid out in the dining room, ready for Lady Margaret and myself to partake of as we wish."

"Certainly sir... I wondered if the staff might take the opportunity to greet their new mistress before supper this evening, sir?"

"No, Gates, not this evening. Lady Wiggington is somewhat overwrought tonight. I think perhaps tomorrow before luncheon might be a better time for that. She will be calmer and more subdued by then."

The butler bowed his head. "Certainly, sir, will there be anything else, sir?"

"No, Gates, not tonight. Tell Grisson that I shall not require his valet services this evening. I shall manage perfectly well on my own. Please inform Lady Margaret's lady's maid, er..."

"Hockley, sir."

"Ah yes, Hockley. Her services will not be required by my wife this evening either."

"Certainly, sir. Might I take this opportunity to congratulate you on your marriage, sir?"

Thomas beamed at Gates, "How very good of you, Gates, thank you. I think that eventually we shall deal very nicely together, the Lady Margaret and I."

The butler bowed and left the room. He and the household were very familiar with their master's choice in the type of lady he chose to call 'friend'. The previous lady that their master had been involved with, a widow, had visited the house on occasion. She had been of unpleasant disposition at the beginning of their association, but by the time she and Sir Thomas had ended their affair, she was both polite and pleasant to all the staff that she came in contact with above stairs.

Their master's choice of bride did not surprise the household but they did speculate, wondering if, on this occasion, he might have 'bitten off more than he could chew'. Gates shook his head, as once again he wondered that very thing as he returned below stairs.

Thomas thought that Margaret should have had ample time to down at least three sherries, surely making her more than a little squiffy by now. It was time to return to the withdrawing room and assess her mood.

I liked this story but it started with a caning right off the bat. No warnings, no this is how it's going to be. Thomas seems to spank first and not listening to his bride. He comes off as a insensitive jerk. Still there's something about him that makes me like him. There's a little mystery as well. I would have given this a 3 1/2 if it let us.

This in an enticing Victorian style erotic romance (set in the time of King George III), with a healthy dose of spanking mixed in. The extended title states “Masterful Husbands – Book One”, but it is really a continuation of the characters first introduced in “His Christmas Rose” by Vanessa Brooks and Beth Bennett. This book will more than stand on its own and is worth a full five star rating just as its predecessor earned. Full marks for an endearing love story featuring both Domestic Discipline punishments and erotic spankings. Did I mention the sex was HOT HOT HOT ? Twenty-seven chapters, and I wanted more! Get this book now, and then get your copy of “His Christmas Rose”, and then (im) patiently wait for what is sure to be the next book in a bestselling series. 5 Stars

Although I am giving this book three stars, it is a really light three. There were entirely too many issues for me. I read historical romances dealing with the haute ton and this era, but this book used language I have never heard before. Then there was the constant use of the word bought when it was supposed to be brought. On top of that, the book seemed to just go from spanking to sex until about three quarters of the way through the book when an interesting bit of plot appears then is over within what seems like a few pages. All of this made it a difficult read for me.

I did not enjoy this story as much as I enjoyed His Colonial Rose. I thought Thomas was too hard-handed many times and didn't really feel an emotional connection between the two main characters. Thomas always seemed delighted when he had to spank Margaret. I just never felt any compassion from him - just lust. He stated that he loved her spark, but anytime she talked back to him, she was punished. I absolutely disagreed with the men's decision to spank their wives and "ginger" them together. It seemed very contrary to Benedict's personality (from Colonial Rose) to publicly and intentionally humiliate his wife. The ladies were punished harshly for not acting "ladylike" yet the men were no gentlemen to treat their wives with such disregard. Personally, I just couldn't get past this scene. I hope Weston is kinder and more considerate of Imogene in the next story.

This is a good story set in England around the time of the Revolutionary War. Margaret is a difficult person, but Thomas, her new husband, is more than capable of using both affection and punishment to free her of her “waspish” ways and behave in a warmer and more pleasant manner. Filled with a lot of period details which added to the story, it is fast paced and well written. The main characters and their friends are interesting and likable and I enjoyed the love story that developed between Thomas and Margaret.

Good bedtime reading on 02/29/2016 11:39am
A great read...The book tells the tale of Lady Margaret Beauchamp who has recently got herself married to Sir Thomas Wiggington. Not a match made in heaven as Lady Margaret believes she has married beneath her station. However, Sir Thomas genuinely loves and cares for his new wife who acts out in a very snobbish manner to all and sundry. Sir Thomas has a way to curb her behaviour through discipline as well as love-making to bring her around to the sweet-natured woman he believes is hidden beneath her defiant demeanor. Great relationship between the characters...sometimes very amusing too!

This is the story of Margaret Beauchamp. We met her in A Christmas Rose when she wanted to marry Benedict Mortimer. Thomas has fallen in love with her and has hidden his real character so that he might marry her. Once they are married, the real man comes out. He is a strong man who will bring out the loving side of Margaret. There are many punishments, and some are severe. But, we know that they are given in love. I give this 5 stars!

I enjoyed this story that continued from His Christmas Rose where we met many of the main characters in this follow-up story that will be a new series. Sir Thomas Wiggington has been in love with Lady Margaret Beauchamp since her coming out and in spite of her wishes, they become engaged, and we start out with them on the day they marry. She is a waspish shrew, just like her mother, but Lord Thomas has ways of taming her nastiness. The plot kept me captivated, and I loved returning and seeing so many delightful characters from the previous story. The dialog has entertaining moments, and the story has some mystery and suspense elements that will eventually be uncovered. There are several laugh out loud moments of tiffs between Lady Rose and Lady Margaret that will land each land in trouble with their dominant spouses. I look forward to more in this entertaining series.

A Masterful Beginning I absolutely loved this book. What an exquisite story of a young lady being lucky enough to have finally met her perfect match. Her mother was a absolute shrew and unfortunately tainted the poor girls personality while growing up. Underneath it all though Margaret did have a kind and loving soul and Thomas could see this. With his somewhat loving and strict discipline Margaret starts to bloom into the adult that she was meant to be. If only she had, had more of the influence of her father but you will learn more about that later. This book is well written with nicely developed characters as well as an erotic and romantic storyline. I highly recommend this book.

I adored this newest edition by Vanessa Brooks. It almost reminded me of "The Taming of the Shrew." It is clear that Sir Thomas had seen something in Margaret that no other has seen. He sees her potential to be a beautiful, caring individual. However she has never been given the opportunity to show those characteristics. Her mother is a spiteful, horrid women whom spew nothing but vitriol out of her mouth. She has tainted her daughter with her evilness. Sir Thomas is her redeemer so to speak. He sees the beautiful woman she can become, even if it means some harsh discipline must be provided to make her see the better path. I truly enjoyed this novel and the developing characters.

I loved this Georgian story of how love when applied with spanking can have a very positive affect on destructive and distasteful behavior. The characters are well written and with lots of human flaws. The scenes are very graphic with lots of disciplinary spankings and hot spicy sex. I highly recommend this book

An excellent and enchanting read that has you hooked from the very beginning. Set in the Georgian era, this book is well written and packed full of historical references and descriptions that make it very easy to envisage the tale as it unfolds. Sir Thomas knows a thing or two about taming wild women and the venomous Lady Margaret is no exception to this rule. When her vile temper gets the better of her, her loving husband is only too happy to apply a firm hand or cane to her posterior, to bring out the loving and kind women he knows resides within. Ms. Brooks, Sir Thomas is a very loveable character and as a reader, it is very clear that everything he does for Margaret is done from a deeply loving point of view. Can't wait for the next edition of the Masterful Husbands Books.

Oddly enough, Sir Thomas fell in love with his bride, Margaret, because she was a nasty, spiteful, ill-mannered shrew.  He longed to tame her willful spirit and bring out the sweet submissive woman he knew she could be.  He certainly had a lot of taming to do, as Margaret's behavior was atrocious.  He thoroughly enjoyed every minute of punishing her, but he was kind and loving.  For the reader, Margaret's behavior was very amusing as was Thomas's way of dealing with her.  This well-written, entertaining story had me smiling often and at times laughing out loud.  Besides the development of the couple's relationship, there were other aspects of the plot that added a touch of thrill and mystery.  I enjoyed the book from beginning to end and highly recommend it.

I did enjoy this book. Sir Thomas and Lady Margaret were a great couple! Lady Margaret has a "vinegar" tongue that Thomas is going to tame! What I did not like about this book is that Thomas was really quick to cane Margaret. I do not like that a husband would cane his wife for any reason! I have read books by this author and enjoyed them. Also, this book was a good length. I gave this book 3 stars because I think the caning is to much.

This book had me hooked from the very beginning....I had trouble putting it down. The characters were very well developed and the story progressed quite nicely. In a turn around, the good guy falls for the bad girl , but with some well deserved discipline and some equally deserved love, Sir Thomas takes to the task of uncovering the beautiful treasure within with relish and perservance. The spanking and love making scenes were some of the best I have read. Keep up the good work!

This book was a very nice read. Not too long or short. The story line caught on really fast for me. I loved the characters that were well developed. Margaret was an interesting heroine and very refreshing, as she wasn't perfect and had very rough edges, especially in the beginning. I enjoyed the H and h's relationship as he guided and supported her to become who she really was and how to love. Will definitely be reading more from this author.

I loved this book and I found it to be a great start of a new series. There is a great romance here between Thomas and Margaret and their journey to their HEA was such fun. I had to laugh though when Margaret didn't quite get the type of husband she thought she did. I am really looking forward to book two!

I throughly enjoyed this historical novel, a taming of the shrew with spanking and loving. Sir Thomas uses the carrot and stick on his bride Lady Margaret, he punishes her severely when she is a sharp tongued harpy and rewards her with passionate loving when she is good. I loved the way the scenery was woven into the story. It pulled me in especially as the deep feelings and emotions of the characters made it totally real.
