With her castle under siege and her enemies on the verge of battering down the gates, Lady Camilla's situation is desperate. But when an infamous mercenary named Sir Balen unexpectedly rides to her rescue, she soon finds herself in an entirely different kind of trouble.

Though the mere sight of the devilishly handsome brute sets her heart racing, Balen's assumption of the position and duties of her late husband incenses Camilla, especially because those duties seem to include spanking her bare bottom whenever he feels it necessary.

Yet despite her blushing cheeks and burning backside, Balen's bold dominance leaves Camilla yearning for him to take her hard and thoroughly. Can she swallow her pride and propose the marriage she knows would be best for all involved, or will her stubbornness lead to disaster?

Publisher's Note: Mercenary is an erotic romance novella that includes spankings, sexual scenes, and more. If such material offends you, please don't buy this book. This book is also available as part of a two-book collection entitled Lords and Ladies: Two Medieval Spanking Novellas, which was voted Best Historical Spanking Romance of 2013 by Spanking Romance Reviews!

The story begins with Lady Camilla's castle under siege. Again. With a skeleton crew of faithful servants, an aging knight, and her superior skills with a longbow, they are still vastly outnumbered and definitely about to lose. That is until they're saved by the intervention of a knight and his men. Thinking it's Sir Aelbert, the Lady is in for a big surprise when she finds out she's been saved by Sir Balen, the Savage Sword, in MERCENARY by Renee Rose. What ensues is a battle of wits that will leave you smiling and unsure whether to cheer for Sir Balen or Lady Camilla.

Like all of Renee Rose's stories, this one is marvelous with the right amount of pink cheeks, both kinds, as the dueling couple work through their growing attraction for each other, their not so subtle power plays, and the eventual happily ever after. But in between, it's fireworks all the way.

Fans of Ms. Rose, spanking stories, and/or historical romance will thoroughly enjoy this story for its pure entertainment from start to finish. Everything from the not so typical heroine who puts her concern for others before herself, to the hero who thinks nothing of putting her over his knee to spank some sense into her, to the eventual coming together of two people who very much belong together…it will leave you breathless, eager for more, and flipping back to page one to read it again.
