!Read E-pub ë Veronica á Veronica is a simple lady s companion who accepts her lot in life to sit on the sidelines and watch others have fun escapades and adventures After all, she s stuck she has no dowry, it s incredible unlikely she d ever marry But deep inside Veronica is the overwhelming desire to be disciplined Enough so that she writes sordid tales about punishment in her diary, which one day falls in love with the very duke that one of her stories is about Tired of demanding mistresses that don t appreciate his interests in spanking and discipline, the Duke immediately singles Veronica out as a perfect solution to his problem he d marry this woman and get everything he wanted marriage to a beautiful woman and one who would like receiving punishment as much as he liked dealing it But there s a very fine line between punishments and playful spankings in the bedchamber, and Veronica finds it difficult to get one but not the other as well Will his attentions prove to be too much Or will she yearn for his hand no matter how firmly he applies it to her bottom My review contains spoilers and they re mostly my thoughts as I went with the bookVeronica by Nattie Jones was my first try of the author s work, and I m not really impressed There are things about the story bothered me a lot even though I read a lot of erotica with light BDSM I wasn t fond of the author s writing either This was the story of a lady s companion, Veronica and her sudden marriage to a Duke based on a mutual desire spanking Veronica, the orphaned and poor daughter of a baron, has been a lady s companion for a while now She s not really fond of her position in life but has resigned to being a spinster and to working for living But she has this irresistible desire to be spanked on her bottom Something she deems someone like her shouldn t want because it s probably not normal But she can t help wanting it so, she details her desire in her diary.When the story begins, Veronica was staying with her employer at the estate of the Duke of Durhamshire One day, when she goes in the library for some quiet time, Veronica loses her diary This scene was pretty odd, and confusing How she just leaves it there, as if to be found by the Duke Her employer, one of her female friends and the Duke come in the library and they find the diary together One of them even starts reading aloud from it Veronica tries to hide herself in the shadows of the library but the Duke sees her He also takes the diary from that woman After the debacle, Veronica finds herself summarily dismissed because her employer recognized the diary But the Duke pays a call afterwards, surprising her with a proposal of his own for a marriage based on whatever she wrote in the diary After all, that was a narrative of THE DUKE spanking her Oh yes, she s been fantasizing over the Duke ever since she saw him What she didn t know that the Duke has also been attracted to her Now that they re given a chance to act on their mutual desire, the Duke will not hear a no How can Veronica reject such an offer, especially when Jeffrey said that he s alone The Duke, Jeffrey, is tired of mistresses and their demands Also the fact that he hasn t found a woman who loves to take spanking the way he wants give it Veronica seems like a girl after his own heart And so, soon enough they get married.The story is told from Veronica s POV We find her self doubting her abilities to act as a Duchess I thought it was logical She has acted as a lady s companion all her life, so on her first day as a Duchess she makes some funny mistakes that only embarrass her at Jeffrey s home She s confused about her new station, and her increased obsession over her husband s spanking love making comes second to that, at least that s how I saw it.Veronica also meets Georgette, Jeffrey s younger sister who is married to Lord Riverchurch Georgette seems very happy with her life and welcomes Veronica with open arms, though Lord Riverchurch takes a dislike to her on spot I never really knew why he disliked her Was it because he knew of Jeffrey s fetish, since he himself shared the same fetish once even a mistress too or was it because she was a lady s companion Later, we find Veronica and Jeffrey acting on their desire Veronica was to obey his wishes She d be spanked for everything be it something good, or bad even if its Jeffrey s fault, she ll be the one who d be spanked Jeffrey was just crazy about naked female ass, especially Veronica s Honestly, there were wayyyy too much spanking, peddling going on I mean I m not saying spanking is bad but it was just weird Veronica craved it, so much so that she d feel bereaved if Jeffrey didn t spank her at least once a day I found that not only Jeffrey and Lord Riverchurch liked it but even Georgette did, though her husband never acted on it, rather preferring a mistress the jerk Both Jeffrey and Lord Riverchurch liked spanking the wayward female servants, something that made me rather uncomfortable The servants in general would sometimes be horrified by the way Jeffrey would spank Veronica and make her cry Of course, they were playing a game that the servants didn t understand Neither did I and so, I couldn t connect with any of the characters I sometimes found Jeffrey scary because he was too unpredictable I didn t know what was game and what was real punishment He even threatens to bloody her ass in one scene It might ve turned Veronica on but me Nope I didn t think any of the scenes were hot That certainly wasn t my cuppa For an erotica, there weren t even enough hot sex scenes in it.I found the author s writing stilted, choppy The scene sequences didn t match Many a times I had to read a paragraph twice or to get what the hell was happening, ie., in one scene, Veronica was sitting down to read a book When Georgette came to her for a chat, she puts down her sewing to talk to her Now, when did she pick up sewing instead of the book, I have NO idea Sometimes I didn t know if they were in Georgette s house, or Jeffrey s townhouse or whatever because nothing was mentioned specifically Let s not forget the fact that Veronica was giggling constantly Another thing I thought rather strange was Veronica s jealousy of Georgette Over the course of the story, they spend a lot of time together and talk about spanking quite frankly That is when Georgette lets Veronica know about her own wishes to be spanked Then she mentions she has even asked Jeffrey to spank her, though he never did comply with her wishes, to Georgette s utter disappointment She asked her own brother to spank her WTF Veronica gets jealous and remains jealous of Georgette and Jeffrey s relationship most of the story I understand she wanted Jeffrey all to herself and spank her to smithereens, which is good for them personally She doesn t get jealous of the talks of his mistresses and yet, she s jealous of Jeffrey s sister and his affection for her I really didn t know what to think of that.But, there were times I thought Jeffrey could be sweet when he wasn t being a weirdo The fact that he was totally set on Veronica and scared of losing her was something I liked Those scenes gave me hopes that this might get better, but sadly, as a whole, it didn t And I couldn t really connect with Veronica 3 stars.Here s something that is stuck with me even now I yearned to be the center of my husband s attention, and yearned even for my bottom to be the center of his attention facepalm This story seemed to start out very typical of other historical pieces where the girl has fantasy, catches the eye of the lord of the manor, and they end up wed Most stories end here with an implied HEA What sets Veronica apart is what comes next We see Veronica s battle with her own thoughts and feelings about being spanking and how see will real fit into the Duke s life She battles jealous feelings for her new sister in law and her relationship with the Duke The last third of the story deals with a careless comment from the Duke We see that Veronica has really grown and is a stronger woman and it will change but her life and the life of the Duke forever Well written historical with an interesting twist. Nattie Jones is a great writer and I will be purchasing of her books This is a classic erotic romance that made me wish I could trade places with Veronica Who doesn t want to be swept up by a Duke and live a live of privilege and pleasure
