A Proper Punishment
By Allison West
Publisher: Blushing Books
Released: April 7, 2017
She’s stolen gold… will she steal his heart? Lena Mae has been turning down the advances of men and potential suitors for marriage. She has not met a man worthy of her attention or her hand. Looking for adventure and learning of the route between England and Paris where gold is hauled and transported, Lena is determined to steal enough gold bars to live alone and never need to consider the advances of another man.
William Mason is responsible for guarding the train and the gold bars buried inside the safes. He has always been a man of the law without question. When he discovers that the safe transporting the gold has been broken into and there are thieves on the train, he enlists the help of the young Lena Mae who has caught his attention. Traveling alone with a story to tell, she appears to be the most honest and least likely to be involved given her dainty size. Learning of her betrayal, he must decide how to enforce his rule and whether she should be disciplined or arrested and handed over to the authorities for her crimes.
DISCLAIMER: A Proper Punishment contains elements of age-play, power exchange, discipline, anal play, and graphic sexual content. If any of these offend you, please do not purchase this book.
“You didn’t come over to me because of your missing scarf, did you?” Had he realized that, although dressed as a boy, it had in fact been a woman?
“I am missing my scarf,” William corrected her. “However, I did find you a little peculiar, barely meeting my gaze. I suppose I wanted to make sure that you weren’t robbing the train.” He laughed, as if the idea of a woman thief was preposterous.
She opted not to ask what was quite so funny that he was belly rolling from the joke. If only he knew what lay at her feet, he wouldn’t be laughing. Not wanting to arouse suspicion, Lena smiled softly and laughed too, deciding it was best to play along with him. “You caught me. I’m a woman.”
William glanced her over and nodded. “I see that.”
Though her curves were quite well hidden beneath the overcoat, the hat that had tucked her blonde tendrils had begun to fall with her laughter. She shifted the lid, fixing her hair. William may have known part of her secret, but she didn’t wish to draw further attention upon herself.
He sighed heavily and stood, leaning slightly forward into her personal space. “I shall see you later.”
“Where are you going?” Her voice hitched with anxiety as he glanced at the door to the train wagon.
“I need to check on what I’m guarding. Perhaps we shall dine together later?” William asked. He reached for her hand, taking her palm and pressing his lips to the back of her hand.
Lena’s cheeks flamed from embarrassment, excitement, and nerves at what he would discover. She had intended for no one to pay her any attention on the train, but William had been drawn to her, for whatever reason, and now he would come back with more questions when he discovered the load was missing. Her stomach ached at the thought of what would happen.
