Author visit - Renee Rose talks about Humbled!

I've an exciting treat; Renee Rose has popped on over to talk about Humbled. I've been reading excerpts of this delicious book on her blog, and it sounds delicious! (I've a weakness for historical romances, and add in some spanking? Yum. Hot.)

Take it away, Renee!

Hi Tara, thank you for having me on your blog today!! I am pimping Humbled, my new French Revolution spanking romance today. In it, a peasant rescues and tames a young aristocrat. Here’s what happens as they begin to contemplate whether two from such different classes can make a future together when they arrive in New Orleans.

She stood and walked toward where he sat on the bed. “You like my hair down, do you not?” she murmured in what she hoped was a seductive tone.

In a flash she was on his lap, his hot open mouth dragging across the pulse at her neck as he held her by her nape. His teeth found her earlobe, his hand kneaded her breast. “Do you tempt me, Corinne?” he asked.

“Yes,” she breathed.

“I can hardly be gentle. You have been a torture to me. How do you think I stood it, lying next to you, night after night, pretending to be your husband and never taking you?”

She panted, lifting her chest to press her aching breasts into his hands. “Then take me.”

He said nothing for a moment, his breath rasping hot in her ear. She trembled in his hold, every nerve alive and firing, hungry for his touch.

“You could find a gentleman for a husband in La Nouvelle-Orléans.”

She stiffened. “And you could become one.”

He took her earlobe into his mouth, sucking, sending a fresh flush of heat straight to her sex. “If I were a gentleman,” he said when he lifted his lips, “would you marry me?”

“Would I have to obey your every demand?” she asked, a smile curving on her lips. She had thought many times about their “pleasure in pain” discussion at the inn, trying to imagine the relationship he had described with his wife. She found herself more and more desperate to experience what they had, to be that intimate with Jean-Claude.

His hand dragged up her leg, tugging her skirt with it. “You would obey,” he said in a husky voice, “…or suffer the consequences.” His hand connected with her bare skin, stroking the outside of her upper thigh, his hardened cock pressed against her leg.

Delicious anticipation mounted as she parted her legs to give him access. “Worse consequences than I have already experienced?”

His fingers stroked up to her bare bottom, then back down her thigh, caressing her knee and following the inside of her leg until his thumb brushed her sex with a shocking sensation. “Not worse, but perhaps different.” The hand at her nape shifted to grasp the back of her hair, as he had done the night at the inn. He tugged her head back. “I would take you any way I liked, any time I liked.”

And the blurb: 

Sentenced to die at age eleven for stealing a pig, Jean-Claude receives an unexpected reprieve when a young aristocrat girl takes the blame instead. When the mobs of the French Revolution fall upon her château years later, Jean-Claude knows he must save her and repay his debt, but as they begin their long flight to safety he makes it clear he is not her servant and he will deal firmly with any disobedience. Though he initially intends to send her off by ship, the beautiful, feisty Corinne inspires a fierce protectiveness in Jean-Claude that makes it hard to say goodbye.
Corinne is alternately infuriated and attracted to the handsome peasant who has no qualms about turning her over his knee and spanking her bare bottom when she steps out of line. When he ends up joining her on a ship to New Orleans, their futures become inextricably intertwined, but can a common-born blacksmith and the daughter of a lord find enough common ground to make a permanent match?
