BDSM, Erotic Romance, Historical Romance
Pressured by her family to wed a wealthy gentleman who doesn't love her, eighteen-year-old Dara grows increasingly upset and confused by her husband's refusal to consummate the marriage, and when he announces that he will be travelling abroad for three months she decides it is time for her to seek out her own happiness, starting with an extended visit to London.
Dara's plan soon goes horribly awry, however, when she tumbles from her horse during a storm and is forced to seek refuge in a farmhouse. Her stern, handsome host wastes no time in stripping Dara of her wet clothing and wrapping her in a blanket, and before the night is over he has claimed her in a rough, demanding, intensely pleasurable way that leaves her longing to be his.
Her dishonesty about her situation earns Dara a painful, humiliating spanking the next morning, and over the coming weeks she learns what it means to be thoroughly and shamefully mastered. Though every moment she spends away from her husband's estate risks a scandal, when it comes to light that he has a secret lover of his own perhaps an arrangement can be agreed upon…
Publisher's Note: The Borrowed Bride includes spankings and sexual scenes. If such material offends you, please don't buy this book.

Jaye Peaches' historical romance, BORROWED BRIDE, was an entertaining read. Young Dara is pressured (hah, let's be real, coerced is more like it) by her family to wed a much older man who doesn't love her (there's a secret there). But no one will tell her anything. At 18, she has expectations of performing her wifely duties but her husband wants nothing to do with her. When he leaves on an extended trip, Dara takes matters into her own hands and decides to go to London by herself. She doesn't make it far before she's caught in a storm, dropped from her horse, and suddenly a guest of Matthew, who has no problems taking her in hand. That includes more than one spanking for her dishonesty (among other things) and learning the hard and rough way (which is a good thing) what it means to be a woman. More importantly, Matthew's woman.
I do enjoy Ms. Peaches' historical romances. The eras she chooses and the characters she creates make for enjoyable reading, a bit of heavy breathing, and much munching of snacks as I ignore what I should be doing in favor of a good read.
