Do As The Doctor Orders is book 4 in the Ruttingdon Club Series.
About the Novel:
Lady Cassandra Martinbury has a big problem - her spendthrift father has bankrupted their earldom and left the two of them nearly penniless. The only way to save what is left of the family estate is for her to marry a man of means, but she draws the line at being forced to submit to the vicious Marquess of Radcliffe, her only suitor.
Feigning illness to avoid wedding Radcliffe, Cassandra comes under the care of Dr. Henry Sutherland, a Ruttingdon Club member and a specialist in the treatment of female hysteria. He can tell immediately that she is faking her symptoms, but the thought of a week with the beautiful woman at his private sanatorium is just too tempting to resist.
But Cassandra needs a decent, agreeable husband, not a week at a remote therapy spa, where there are few people at all to be found, let alone any unattached men of good breeding. Still, that is where she ends up, although she has no intention of remaining there. Her repeated escape attempts from the place find her over the handsome doctor's knee three times before she realizes that the man to save her and her father might just be right in front of her!
The water was warm, thank God, and it was utterly relentless. This was no thin trickle spluttering out of a tap – this was a veritable torrent of pressurised water aimed solely at her most secret parts!
Her chemise, made of fine cotton, immediately became soaking wet and plastered itself to her body. She might as well have been naked in the chair, for allthe cover that it gave her! It was as if the moment the water hit her body, it controlled her completely. She could no longer speak the Queen’s English, as all she could utter were incoherent groans and moans. She writhed against the straps, trying to angle her body towards the delicious pressure pumped against her by the relentless water. Her hips jerked of their own volition, wantonly and obscenely. Her previous fear about the water treatment had disappeared completely. She no longer wished to avoid it – she wanted more of it!
Distantly she heard footsteps come close to her, but her eyes were shut tight against the ferocity of the sensations generated by the pressure of the water. Tightness was starting deep in her belly, a pressure that she could not explain, even if she had the words to do so. The tingling sensation so memorable from the doctor’s touch back in London had started again, faintly
tickling at her as she tried her best to angle herself to accept more of the water.
A deep chuckle came from somewhere above her, but she could not bring herself to open her eyes to see Dr Sutherland look down at her.
“It seems that the treatment is working,” he said. “Are you feeling the benefits, Lady Cassandra?”
About the Author:
I'm Louise Taylor, and I love reading and writing historical romance novels! I’ve now written eight full length erotic historical romances, and all my novels are published by the lovely people at Blushing Books.
All my books have elements of power exchange, spanking and BDSM but none of my heroines are weak-willed or easily dominated - they make their men work for their love!
I live on the beautiful Welsh coast, and I love walking the cliff tops and visiting some of our wonderful historical ruins. I get my best ideas when I'm in the great outdoors and you can usually find me chasing after the piece of paper I've just scribbled my notes on!
I live in a late Victorian house with wonderfully high ceilings and no central heating - thank goodness for my fabulous fireplace! I'm owned by Alfred The Great, an enormous tom cat with very decided ideas about who gets to sit on the right side of the sofa and how long I am allowed to stay in bed in the morning.

About the Book:
La-la Land. The city of angels. The place where ordinary Joe or Jane can realize their dream of becoming rich and famous.
For Tori, Los Angeles is not living up to its promise. Rather than living her dream, she’s waiting tables—hoping for her big break. And hoping it will come before she runs completely out of money. In desperate times, we all take desperate measures, so she takes one step toward becoming a little less poor, possibly at the cost of becoming infamous.
Mark is a writer who has realized his dream. His book is about to become a real, honest to goodness, Hollywood blockbuster. He’s come down from Canada to work on the script. When he spies a beautiful young woman in tears, he naturally swoops in to help. But, this young woman confuses him. She pulls him to her, desperate for his guidance, then pushes him away. Sure it will help calm her, he uses his new-found influence to secure her a small part in the movie version of his best-selling book.
This is Tori’s big break, but instead of being happy, she’s panicking because her porn video is about to go viral. Everything will be ruined! Her big break will turn into a bust, and Mark will spurn her when he sees what she’s done. This is not the script she imagined for her life.
Mark cannot understand. Why isn’t she happy? What is she hiding? Her secrets threaten to put an end to their relationship before it even begins.
Can these two star-crossed outsiders survive Los Angeles and find fulfilment? Or will the sleazy world of make-believe destroy any chance they have for happiness?
Tori kept quiet as Mark negotiated the turn onto the main road. She wanted to ask him to get her a role in the movie he was scriptwriting but it felt way too early. Smacking his face was still etched clearly in her mind. Was he the kind of person who would overlook a thing like that?
She glanced at him. He seemed like he might; he had an honest, kindly face -- a little bluish around the cheek where she’d hit him -- but she could explain that, if he’d let her. And he was the one who’d said, “I’ll give you something to cry about,” so his tastes must run in that direction. If she didn’t mind bruises on her cheeks, why should he mind one on his?
“How’s the script doing?” Tori asked. “It’s doing okay,” Mark replied. “They start filming next week.”
“I know. I asked at the studio.”
“And I should have asked if you like Chinese food.”
“Doesn’t everybody?” she smiled.
It was early and the restaurant was almost empty. The staff whipped away dishes the moment Mark or Tori put down their forks and constantly pressed extra dishes on them. The effect of all this attention was to make an already strained conversation even more difficult. Fortunately, by the time they were at the coffee stage, other customers were arriving and they were no longer the staff’s chief focus.
“It’s not easy making a living from tips,” Tori said defensively when she saw Mark’s irritation at the attention they’d been receiving.
“I guess not,” he said. “I just don’t like being crowded.”
“Then don’t leave a tip.”
“What sort of message would that send? Being attentive to your customer gets you nothing?”
“Maybe being annoying should get you nothing,” Tori countered. Then she added slyly, “Except, perhaps, a spanked bottom.” She watched him carefully to see how he’d react. It was cheap, playing on his weakness to get a foot in the door on his movie, but she might never again get this close to someone with influence, and cheap wasn’t so bad. After the past days, she could do cheap and lap it up.
About the Author:
So long as I can remember I've been interested in reading and spanking, particularly romantic spanking (I still think Mr. Knightley's verbal spanking of Emma in Jane Austen's book of the same name is the best there is anywhere). I’m showing my age when I say that in those long ago days it was easy to have both interests met in a large number of regular books (and even movies). Eventually, my interest in reading became an interest in writing and that naturally led to writing spanking romances.
I'm married with two grown kids and live in central Canada when I'm not traveling, which I very often am. If I'm not reading or writing, I can usually be found outdoors with a camera looking to capture perfect images of landscapes and wildlife.
