Since losing his wife, a woman who shared his sexual proclivities, Prentice Hyde has
wandered lost, until Desiree Huntington appears at The Sapphire Club, wishing to
engage his services in just the activities he most enjoys. At her seductive request, he
paddles her lovely derriere, then takes her to his bed, showing her passion that she has
never before experienced.
However, Desiree has a secret. Ten years before, the wicked Prentice Hyde took her
virginity, her being one in a long line of faceless young women who were charmed by
the handsome and persuasive Marquis of Wycroft. That single act destroyed her life,
forcing her into a marriage with a man three times her age. Now, Desiree is bent on
Will she be able to make the decadent marquis fall in love with her without engaging
her own heart? Can she forfeit the sexual awakening he has aroused in her? Will he be
able to convince her he has changed and now his fondest desire is for her to join him in
Lord Decadent's Obsession?
To Clint, Kim, Mike, Sebastian, Chris, Patsy, Victoria and Lindsay. Your unflagging
support means everything to me. Love you all. To Keta Diablo, my mentor and friend.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Your books inspire me and your
encouragement can only make me a better author.
Prentice Hyde glared moodily at the flames. If a stranger were to see him
standing there, one would never imagine he was the Marquess of Wycroft. His tawny
hair was mussed, a casualty of too many lonely, desolate hours. His cravat was
unbound, and falling freely down his chest; the billowy sleeves of his ivory lawn shirt
were rolled up to his elbows. He was brooding as he took another sip of his smoky
scotch. Brooding, and waiting . . . and he
waiting. His impatience would not bode
well for his guest, he feared. Just thinking about what he was there to do made his cock
stir, then stand at full attention, his fawn breeches becoming less comfortable.
A knock sounded.
"Finally," he shouted toward the door. "Get your ass in here, now."
The door creaked open, and a woman walked in, her beige cashmere cloak
covering her from head to toe. She stepped over the threshold and shut the door. "I'm
sorry for my tardiness, my lord."
"Remove your clothes."
Prentice made a slow turn toward the woman, taking in her appearance for the
first time. She was rather short, but then most everyone was when compared to his six
foot three inches. Her hair, almost as blonde as his, was unbound, wavy, and thick. The
candlelight showed it to be golden, but she could have been bald for all he cared. It
wasn't her hair he was interested in.
"Remove your clothes," he repeated, his tone stern.
She struggled to remove her dress, a silly pink confection that floated to the floor
with a silky swish. She hadn't worn stays, which left her standing before him in a
diaphanous chemise, silk stockings and her soft, kid slippers. Obviously, she'd
dampened the chemise, for it clung to her every curve. Prentice's mouth watered, and
he wondered if she'd done it for his benefit.
"Show me your breasts."
He was reaching beyond his purpose in meeting this young woman, but she
deserved to be uncomfortable. She'd kept him waiting.
The woman untied the ribbons at each shoulder and slid the fabric down over
her breasts, revealing puckered nipples. Prentice took a step toward her, slow and easy.
He stopped six feet from her, and sat in the middle of the large, blue and gold-striped
As she did, his cock begged for surcease.
"Yes, squeeze them until they hurt."
She released a little squeak, but her head lolled back, showing him she enjoyed
what she was doing.
"What is your name?"
"Susan, my lord."
"Why have you come here, Susan?"
"To have my bottom spanked, sir. My betrothed insisted I know what a real
spanking feels like before we are married. He says I will have many. It wouldn't be
proper for him to do this before we are married, so he brought me here."
"So you wish to be spanked, dear Susan."
"Yes, my lord. I wish to please my betrothed when he is my husband."
She blushed. Prentice did so love the color pink or crimson on a woman's cheeks.
He raised his arm and beckoned her with his fingers. "Drop your chemise, and
Susan did as he bid.
"I'm going to spank you with my hand, Susan."
"Yes, my lord."
"Lie across my lap. Now are you comfortable?"
Prentice smiled as he surveyed the luscious ass lying ever so close to his tortured
cock. "Your husband will want your bottom to be reddened all the time, I suspect. Your
cheeks are much too pale, my dear." He smacked her right cheek, eliciting a surprised,
"Eek," from her.
"Did you feel that?"
"Yes, sir," she said, her voice strangled.
Prentice rubbed a rough hand over his work then struck her left cheek with equal
force. She sniffled but made no other sound. "Were you ever spanked as a child, Susan?"
"Yes, all the time."
"Did you enjoy it?"
"No, sir, it was my father who spanked me, sir."
"Well, let's see if we can't show you how enjoyable a spanking can be."
The young woman simply nodded.
He gave her several more quick smacks, followed by a harsh hand rub, and then
a few more swats for good measure. She "Eeked" and "Ouched," but held fast, gripping
his pant leg with both hands. Prentice used his hand to open her thighs, exposing her
private parts. He dipped into her folds, and she rewarded him with a wiggle.
"Has any other man ever touched you thusly?"
Prentice chuckled. "Not even that fiancé of yours?"
"No, sir, not until we are married."
"Mr. Hundley . . . a timid fellow, is he?"
"I suppose so, sir."
"With your permission, Susan, I am going to show you something. When you are
married you must show this to your husband, and never let him take his pleasure
without giving you yours. Do you understand?"
"You see, dear, if sex is done properly, it is with an equal measure of pain and
pleasure. Your ass will tingle and burn, making it impossible to forget that you are a
sexual being. Now, let me show you the pleasure. His deft hand found her clitoris, and
he began to circle the already erect nubbin. "You little minx, you are enjoying this
spanking, aren't you?"
He'd already worked her into a state of ecstasy. She rubbed her soaking wet folds
against his hand, and moaned as only a woman on the verge of reaching her pleasure
"Yes, dear, let go," he encouraged.
She did just that, making it difficult for him to continue. She writhed and
squirmed, shouting unintelligibly. His cock throbbed; no doubt he could fuck a Seven
Dials whore and be satisfied.
Little Susan seemed to have become a woman right before his eyes. "Are you a
She hesitated, making him wary.
"Are you?" His patience grew thin.
"How old are you?"
"Twenty. I just had my birthday at Christmas."
"I believe you have now experienced a spanking at the hands of a man other than
your father. I wish you happy in your marriage." He smacked her hard on both cheeks,
and she yelped. "Get up now, and get dressed. We are finished here."
He helped her to her feet, walked to the mantel, and took up his glass of scotch.
She dressed, eliciting his help with the buttons.
"I suggest you be on your way. I'll have Hampton get you a hackney."
"I have my own, sir, but thank you."
She picked up her cloak and raced from the room.
Prentice sipped his scotch as he paced the room. His cock was raging. He'd
fucked his way through the
without any special regard to marital or virginal status.
No apologies whatsoever, he'd broken in many young women when they'd become a
bit too blatant in their flirting. Always with their consent, of course; they were amply
rewarded with pleasure beyond anything they would get when they married their old,
wealthy nobles. He'd even instructed them on how to feign losing their virginity on
their wedding nights. He was nothing if not obliging, a true servant to womankind.
Alone, now, and unsatisfied, he needed relief. Though he could have found
someone with whom he could enjoy a quick fuck, he wasn't so inclined. Being alone
suited his mood. He resumed his seat on the sofa, opened the fall of his breeches, and
released his cock. "No
willing quim for us tonight, old boy
." Prentice took himself in hand,
his head back against the sofa, a handkerchief in his free hand. This was about relief,
not pleasure. Three minutes later, he finished. Nice and quick, just as he'd anticipated.
After cleaning himself up, he went in search of his friend, Lucien Damrill, owner
of the Sapphire Club. He preferred getting foxed to wallowing in the loneliness that had
infiltrated his life of late.
* * * * *
Desiree had sat breathless as she'd watched the Marquess of Wycroft spank the
young woman's arse. Her body was still weak with envy as she thought of how he'd
applied his hand to young Susan's ever reddening cheeks.
"My God, I have never seen anything so exquisite in all my life," she'd whispered
to Serenity Damrill, wife of the owner of the Sapphire Club. She heard the door to room
close. She looked into the room once again, and noted the absence of the gentleman
who had left her in her current state.
She was still riveted to her chair, awestruck at the sights she had witnessed.
"Yes, he is quite skilled, though I can't speak from personal experience."
"Mrs. Damrill, what must I do to engage the marquess in such activity?"
"I believe you simply must ask, Mrs. Huntington. The marquess is a particular
friend of mine, and I will be happy to make the introduction, if you'd like."
"I would very much like the introduction; now, if you don't mind."
Serenity Damrill chuckled. "I understand your haste. Come, I will make the
introduction, then you may settle the details with Lord Wycroft."
"I understand, Mrs. Damrill. Might I have a few moments to compose myself?"
"Please, call me Serenity. Everyone else does, and of course you may."
The ladies chatted innocuously for several minutes. When Desiree felt more sure
of herself, she nodded as Serenity led her from the small viewing closet that had
afforded her such a delicious view of the equally delicious marquess.
Serenity knocked on the double doors of the library and opened them.
Her husband rose from his chair, smiling as his wife entered. "Dear, it is nice to
