4.5 "Revolutionary Beginnings" Stars for the story and 3.5 Stars for the narration!

If you love well developed, historical romances with a BDSM element, in this case primarily disciplinary and erotic spankings, and are looking for a sensual, quick listen; then Humbled may just be the right contender for your next listen. The heat factor on this naughty little listen is off the charts, and the cleverly crafted plot, which could easily have truly taken place during this time period, provides for a

An awesome spanking romance set in the French Revolutionary period! I loved it!

I loved the characters! The Aristocratic woman who flees for her life, losing her family, her home, everything!

The blacksmith (a commoner, who owes her his life.), who vows to save her and get her to safety.

The passion that turns to love.

And the conflicting emotions of two people from “different worlds” fighting to see if they truly belong together.


Hot sex, awesome story line, great emotions, and super span

You know, one thing that bugs me in many DD and BDSM novels is power imbalance. I cannot be eloquent enough to express the nausea I endure whenever I sense self loathing in female characters, based simply on how wealthy/stronger/clever their partners are. Give me one girl who accepts her value is the very same (or even higher) of her lover and I will give you one female character I'll respect.

This is Corinne. Besides being from a higher social hierarchy, she beleives her pride is to be maintaine

I was given a free copy for an honest and fair review.

Let me admit that I'm a history buff so when Renee posted on her blog that she had written a spanking romance set in the French Revolution, I was excited! The prologue, set 10 years before the revolution, drew me in- the stark unfairness between the peasant boy and the aristocrat girl. Renee wrote gorgeous drama as the peasants attacked and Corinne, the aristocrat girl now grown into a young lady, fled for her life. I cheered as Jean-Claude a

The release of a new historical from Ms. Rose is a day of celebration on my calendar, and Humbled deserves the whole day, since you're not going to be able to put it down. Full of historical detail, but not enough to bog down the action (or the D/s sex!), the story takes a young French aristocratic girl from danger in revolutionary France to safety in New Orleans in the company of a peasant blacksmith (you know, the original fireman) who, being a widower, knows how to keep a woman in line, espec ...more

Really well written and well told spanking story with a great plot. It's the French revolution and aristocrat Corinne is saved from the mob by someone from her past...a peasant. While Corinne may be above her savior in station, Jean-Claude has no problem showing the young woman who is in charge, and who master's whom.
One thing I very much liked: so many spanking books play off the odious trope of bratting, which leads to spanking. While Corinne required correction, there was no out of control,
Corinne and Jean-Claude. This was somehow better than I thought it would be an yet still not my faves by this author (The Westerfield Affair and Pleasing the Colonel). It's a spanking book, so if Domestic Discipline doesn't turn your crank, you should probably try Pleasing the Colonel which is a milder book. I did find the author pushed the discipline thing a bit far for me, talking about the Marquis de Sade and the pleasure of pain. But it's mostly just talk.

Interesting story and setting, with a lot of spanking.

This is my first book by the author. At first, I thought that it would be heavy on BDSM sex scenes with little story. However, the book surprised me. The plot and story are quite solid and enjoyable to read. The sex scenes didn't come until almost half way through, but the spanking came much sooner. Apart from the demand for obedience and submission, the BDSM aspect is limited to just spanking with hand and other objects.

Although the b

Delightful historical tale!

This is a short story set during the French revolution. The protagonists first meet when he's eleven & she's about eight. She's nobility & he's a peasant, he's accused of stealing, she saves his life. Years later their paths cross again during the resistance. I won't say more except to say, the relationship that develops between Jean Claude & Corrine is intimate & touching. Another well written offering by Renee Rose.

Set during the French Revolution, aristocrat Corinne escapes from France with the help of a silversmith who plans to start a new life in America. She tests Jean-Claude, resulting in several spankings before she learns to live as a commoner.

I loved how these two reconnected after their first meeting. These two had such a chemistry. I really enjoyed seeing them flee France and everything they went through. It was a really good short story!
