The Forbidden Castle by Dinah McLeod

Aimee has hoped for Geoffrey to make her his wife for as long as she can remember, and though he treats her with contempt she remains determined to win his heart. When Geoffrey sends her on a journey to bring back a woman he wants for himself, Aimee sets out to do his bidding. But the trip does not go as planned, and after losing her way – and her horse – Aimee takes refuge in a stable for the night. The next morning, she finds to her shock that she has stumbled upon a dark, forbidden fortress rumored to be inhabited by a terrible beast.


Upon being discovered by Alderic, the castle’s stable master, Aimee does her best to explain her presence. But after catching her in a lie, Alderic scolds Aimee and, to her great shame, chastises her firmly. Yet Alderic’s gentleness after her punishment surprises Aimee, and she cannot help enjoying his attention and wondering why it is that this stable master treats her with a kindness Geoffrey has never shown.


But the fortress is a dangerous place, and soon Aimee falls into the hands of a man who knows nothing of gentleness. Can Alderic save Aimee from torment in the dungeons, and if he does come to her rescue, will he be able to forgive her when he discovers the truth about her presence at the castle?


Dr. Dane McKendrick is tired of his twenty-four- year-old receptionist, Amity Derrington, failing to take her job seriously. Amity is beautiful and smart, but the rich, spoiled girl clearly needs a firm hand, and when she shows up late for work and hung over yet again, Dane lets her know that from now on her behavior will have consequences.


It isn’t long before Amity puts Dane’s warning to the test, and she soon ends up over his knee for a long, hard, bare-bottom spanking. But she’s completely unprepared for the strong emotions that overwhelm her as she dangles over the stern doctor’s lap, and though the painful chastisement brings her to tears, Dane’s attentions turn her on more than she ever imagined possible.


More embarrassing still, when Dane learns the extent to which she has neglected her annual check-ups, Amity quickly finds herself receiving the most intimate, thorough exam of her life. But when Amity learns the full truth about Dane, will she be able to give him everything he demands? And if Amity’s father – who happens to be the most prominent man on the hospital board – finds out about their new relationship, will it cost Dane his job?
