His Little Lapis is Renee Rose's book in The Red Petticoat Saloon series. The Red Petticoat is not just another whorehouse. This is a place for every painted lady to get her happy ending. Madame Jewel and her 'gems' welcome hardworking men to come inside for a home-cooked meal or a few hands of cards. They are invited to listen to a pretty girl sing or watch a show. If a bit of intimate comfort is desired, they are welcome to go upstairs and into the arms of one of the beautiful women wearing the red petticoats. However, refer to its gems as whores and you'll find yourself tossed out into the street.
“If you ever even think about doing something so foolish again, you won’t leave this house for a month, do you understand me?”
Her nose burned. She nodded quickly, dropping her eyes to hide the tears swimming there.
“Take your clothes off.” His voice sounded heavy.
It made her guilt even worse. She reached behind her and untied the sash to her dress, then unfastened the buttons.
Will arranged the chair with the back to the woodpile and sat in it, one ankle folded over his knee, the quirt resting on his lap. He watched her disrobe with an impassive face.
A wave of dizziness rocked her on her feet. Oh—she was holding her breath. She forced it out as her petticoats fell to the floor on top of her dress.
He didn’t say a word, just watched as she removed every stitch of clothing until she stood naked before him, shivering a little, although the air wasn’t particularly cool.
“Over my lap.” He patted his knees and set the quirt beside him propped against the chair.
“Yes, sir.” She swallowed and stepped up to him. She’d never felt so vulnerable naked—hadn’t known it was possible to be this humbled. A real spanking. This was different than all the play spankings she’d had at The Red Petticoat. Different, even, than that first whipping she’d goaded him into giving her. This was serious discipline and even though her body reacted with excitement, guilt and regret made her wish to never repeat this.
Will tugged her across his lap and pulled her snug against his torso with a strong arm around her waist. His hand clapped down before she expected it.
She yelped and squeezed her cheeks together, then did her best to relax them again.
“Toes turned in, bottom up.”
All she ever wanted was a stern man to call Daddy...
Once a respectable young governess, Louise Small tumbled from society’s grace after her employer forced himself on her. She wound up at The Red Petticoat playing Little Lapis Lazuli, a submissive who dresses like a girl and offers her bottom up for frequent spankings.
She enjoys her new identity, so far removed from the prim governess she’d been, but she longs for a real daddy—one who is kind and caring, yet willing to administer real discipline. When she spies Culpepper Cove's Mayor interacting with his young niece, she knows he's just the sort of man she wants. But his disdain for her and her profession put them in conflict.
Letting go of her little self, she reverts to the proper, fine-mannered governess to win his attention. But at what cost? Her little side squashed, she must give up hope of being taken in hand. Will being the Mayor's wife be enough?
