After the castle where she has been residing is suddenly besieged, Lady Claire finds herself in a desperate situation. But in an odd turn of fortune, when the fortress falls she is rescued by none other than Lord Galien of Minrova, the very man that her brother, a powerful duke, recently commanded to find Claire and claim her as his wife. Claire has no intention of marrying Galien, but that decision is not hers to make and her defiance is quickly overcome by means of a firm hand applied to her bare bottom. Galien is not content merely going through the motions of a political marriage, however, and he sets out to win not only Claire’s submission but her affection as well. His skilled lovemaking leaves his new bride begging for more, but can he conquer her heart? Publisher’s Note: Conquering Lady Claire contains 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 five-book collection entitled The Conquered Brides.
