The fantabulous Renee Rose visits with her gorgeous historical spanking romance "Humbled"

Hi Joelle!
I wanted to talk about public sex today. Long before I admitted to my husband my obsession with spanking, we already colored outside the lines in our sex life. He has a threesome fetish and we both have a streak of exhibitionism. We have had sex in more unlikely and public places than I can recall. Actually, I don’t think it’s true exhibitionism because we don’t actually want to be caught or seen, it’s more of the raised stakes, knowing we *might* be caught that makes it so exceptionally naughty and therefore exciting. Sneaking off during a party is one of our favorite tricks. I drew on personal experience when I wrote the scene in my new spanking romance Humbled in which the characters sneak off for a quickie:

“I have missed my wife,” he said pulling her toward the edge of the garden, beyond the lamplight.
“Where are you taking me, Jean-Claude?”
He stopped near a low wall, wrapping his arms around her and taking her mouth with a hungry kiss.
She laughed, pulling away. “Not here, monsieur, you will cause a scandal!”
“We will have to be very quiet,” he said turning her around and pushing her torso down.
She gripped the wall for stability. “Jean-Claude!”
“Shh. Remember when I said I would take my wife any time and any way I pleased?”
“No, please, Jean-Claude,” she protested, though her heart pounded more from arousal than fear.
“You do not want a spanking out here, do you, love? They will surely hear the sound of my hand punishing your pretty little bottom.”
“You would not dare!”
He pulled up her skirts, parting the slit in the new drawers she had adopted wearing as part of the new fashion. He stroked his fingers over her slit. “You are already wet for me, darling.” His hand retreated, shocking her when it returned as a light slap right over her delicate sex.
She gasped. “Jean-Claude!”
“To whom does this little pussy belong?”
“To you!” she said quickly, but did not manage to forestall another slap. The sound from her lips was more wanton than protesting though, as her pussy suddenly burned with need. She widened her stance, hollowing her back to offer herself.
His fingers returned. “Good girl,” he purred. She heard the rustle of clothing and the head of Jean-Claude’s length met her eager slit. He slapped her sex with his cock, making her giggle, then slid deep inside her.
“Oh, yes,” she sighed.
“You like my cock inside you, do you not, Madame Armand?”
“Yes, monsieur.”
“Say it.”
“I like your cock inside me!” she cried, the shameful words stoking her desire as much as the knowledge they might at any moment be seen by another guest.

Sentenced to die at age eleven for stealing a pig, Jean-Claude receives an unexpected reprieve when a young aristocrat girl takes the blame instead. When the mobs of the French Revolution fall upon her ch√Ęteau years later, Jean-Claude knows he must save her and repay his debt, but as they begin their long flight to safety he makes it clear he is not her servant and he will deal firmly with any disobedience. Though he initially intends to send her off by ship, the beautiful, feisty Corinne inspires a fierce protectiveness in Jean-Claude that makes it hard to say goodbye.
Corinne is alternately infuriated and attracted to the handsome peasant who has no qualms about turning her over his knee and spanking her bare bottom when she steps out of line. When he ends up joining her on a ship to New Orleans, their futures become inextricably intertwined, but can a common-born blacksmith and the daughter of a lord find enough common ground to make a permanent match?

Joelle speaking: Last and least :D I wasn't sure if I'd manage to find space in my writing/reading schedule to read and review this wonderful book, but I got started reading and couldn't put it down and until it was done. I'm a sucker for the underdog and Jean-Claude in the beginning of the book is great for that. To read my full review, go to Goodreads and read it here.


  1. Fabulous snippet Renee ... hot!! Nothing like knowing you may be caught! Thank you Joelle for hosting :)


    1. thanks for commenting, Roz. I must say this is definitely one of my favorites of Renee's :)

    2. Thank you for stopping by, Roz!!

  2. Joelle, thanks for hosting me today!!! And thanks for the thoughtful review!

    1. you're welcome :)
      I relate to those places where words don't quite work, like exhibitionism. I'm not sure my Master and I qualify for a "true" exhibitionism, either. Like we've been involved in orgies and other adventurous sexual/BDSM things at the adult parties at sci-fi conventions; I don't think it was so much to be watched as that's where the sex was happening and neither of us were uncomfortable engaging there.

  3. I love when they make you say it! Hot excerpt. :)

    1. yeah :D I was so glad to see this was the snippet Renee picked to share on my blog, Normandie. yum!!! I totally loved this scene when I first read it!

  4. Yummy. Just started reading it :-)

    1. :) Isn't it a great book so far! I don't know of any other spanking romances set during the French Revolution- Renee did a great job imho

    2. Yay, I hope you enjoy, DelFonte! (and shucks, thanks, Joelle)

    1. thanks for stopping by :) I sure hope Renee has a bunch more people fall in love with this book because of the excerpt :) it's sweet :D

  6. As much as I am craving some outdoor sex, there is no part of me that wants to do it for the exhibitionist reasons. There is no exhibitionist hiding inside of me, lol. And DH feels the same way.

    1. definitely- it doesn't have to always be about exhibitionism with outdoor sex- that's the beauty of Renee's snippet to me :) I told a story on my blog once where my Master switched me in a forest- after we'd walked far from our friends' house

    2. Thank God you're on the same page, right?

    3. don't I have a search function on my blog- if I don't , I'll have to fix that- but search "outdoor play," Renee and you'll get the story

  7. I have been a Renee Rose fan for a while but I just met you today Joelle. When I read your "warning label" I knew I wanted to get to know you better so I had to subscribe to your blog.

    I look forward to more wonderful stories and excerpts.

    1. aww thanks, Heather. Yes, I'm a big fan of Renee's too. I've read many of her books- you read "The Naughty List" right? Her "Saved" in that collection was one of my favorites.

      but yes, I giggled like a schoolgirl when I read that warning message on "Sir Q and Me" and was so glad when Fiona said it was okay to share. I'm chaotic, distractable, and pretty good at offending those are who looking to be offended :D A open mind is a requirement with me. my poor BR could tell some stories of how I can range from talking about my teen to my dog to my Master to the problems of doing laundry for 2 guys (Master and teen) to what might be the best lube for anal sex and does it wash well out of the sheets :D

    2. Yay, Heather. So glad when we can start building community! :)

  8. Joelle hello,

    Thank you for hosting Renee.

    Great snippet Renee and yes, knowing you could get caught certainly raise the stakes. Deliciously naughty.


    1. hi ronnie :) Renee's always good to host :) Haven't read a book of hers that I disliked. And this was such a rare treasure- I love history and she just got the right balance of details about the French Revolution for me to love it

  9. What a way to start my day, coffee and an excerpt from Renee!! Thanks to you both ...need to get my hands on this one :)

    1. hm yes, coffee- I think that's what my morning is missing too :) I took the moment to read and reply to comments this morning- and to read that yummy excerpt again :D thanks for the comment, Shelly

  10. Hi, Joelle. I just realized I haven't actually been to your blog. I've seen your comments here and there for quite awhile, and often enough that I expect to see your familiar "face" when I pop into certain blogs. How rude and lazy of me to rest on that convenience of seeing you elsewhere as a regular, instead of thinking to make the effort to come by here for a visit. You really need to be careful about letting in just any old riff-raff like that. ;-) Okay, enough beating on Irishey. Moving on...

    I love every excerpt I've read of Renee's book. I so want to read this. I wish my tbr list was not so huge. Well... no, I don't wish that because I want to read every book on my list. I wish I could read faster. No, not that either because I like to savor my books. Sigh. Lol! I think the rave reviews have convinced me to move Humbled waaaayyyy up on my list. Yes! That works. :-) So, thank you for adding such a wonderful endorsement to the other reviews.

    Renee, you and Joelle are far naughtier than me, even in my naughtier youth. I've pulled off a few risky encounters in public, and I definitely can see myself sneaking off for a private garden party if the opportunity presented itself. Yowza!

    I never engaged in threesomes or group sex. D and I have discussed 3-ways, thoughtfully and with some true interest, although we both vetoed orgies after little discussion. I thought he was more serious about 3's than he actually is. It was more in the "what if" fantasy realm, but nothing he feels strongly about. He would be willing if it turned out to be something I really must have. I've never entertained more than a willingness to explore that if he really wants it. I'm curious about what it would do for him, but there is no burning desire on my part to add a third. Even if there were, I think we each carry baggage with the potential to cause hurt feelings or insecurities. We would work through it, but no need to borrow trouble for something that isn't hugely compelling to either of us.

    I guess I'm a bit boring in that area, but that is fine with me - after all, I tried caviar a few times and, while I liked it well enough, I did not acquire a craving for it. I'm far more likely to make other selections if it's offered with an hors d'oeuvres buffet, and would buy it only if I knew it was a guest's particular favorite. Some things simply are not my favorite things.

    Having said (aallll that) I wouldn't outright refuse if he truly wanted a third, but I would need some reassurances and be very picky about the prospects. ;-) Still, I prefer we keep things only the two of us, so his "fantasy only" works for me. ;-)

    Nice chatting with y'all! Best wishes to both of you on the continued success of your current and future literary endeavors. I'll take my wordy self away now and go hold court elsewhere. ;-)

    1. oh Irishey, I was excited to see your long comment as I was sipping the Mountain Dew I stole from my Master's box- it is the household joke that I'm a dirty soda stealer :D. But yes, I've grown used to seeing your comments too- you're much more common to comment on Ana's post; I don't get there nearly as often as I'd like, but I'm going better this year post-Ana's Advent Calendar that I did last year. Well only speaking for myself on this- I think I've gone even further than Renee :D- my Master jokes that my sexuality is so far from the mainstream that I've forgotten what the mainstream is. Public sex- but not the type that's against the law- like the idea of performing in pornography, adult parties that include sex- are absolutely no big deal to me.

      Yes, definitely you should move "Humbled" up your TBR- when I started reading, I couldn't stop. Finished it over one night and one morning's reading- when I commented on FB about finishing, Renee said "You already read it?" lol But I was irritated at my Master in a most un-submissive way so Renee's book was better company lol..

      Are you looking forward to Love Spanks? I can't wait! I signed up to be an ambassador once I realized that Ana was doing ambassadors for the event. And what about Saturday Spankings? While it can be tricky for me to find a suitable snippet, I do try. I even have two long-ish paragraphs (one a "POV blurb" and one talking about the whys of what I chose for SatSpanks) in my post for tonight :D
