Britain - 1851
At twenty-five, Delia has avoided marrying her betrothed. Her excuse: helping her father run his shop at the market. The few pence they have has run out and with no dowry, Delia doesn’t have many prospects, except for the one man she’s promised to, Fred Hill. She’d rather set herself on fire than marry him.
In secret, she’s been reading the newspaper and communicating with a gentleman across town that is in dire need of a governess. How bad could schooling a young girl be?
With a knack for thievery, Delia convinces her father’s coachman to take her to the train station, set out for an adventure far from home. Meeting the elusive and handsome Charles Hayward proves troubling as she learns that she’d stolen from him and will be expected to pay him back her debt. Charles runs a strict household and expects constant obedience. Discovering true submission and his desire to discipline, Delia finds her bottom bared far more than she’d like.
Not for the faint of heart, Delia’s Debt contains elements of age play, anal play, scenes of spanking, and graphic sex.
She had forced his hand, giving him no option but to discipline her when he had discovered her thievery. How dare she defy him! All he had asked of her was to stay out of trouble and not to steal on their short trip to the market. The entire ride had been far longer than the few minutes he had left her unattended.
He blamed himself for that mistake, not keeping a watchful eye over the misguided young governess. What troubled her so much that she would risk a one-way trip to the penal colony? Did she not realize that her actions had severe consequences? Perhaps it had been her first time getting caught and if that were the case, then he prayed it would be the last.
In all the years of being a father and having several governesses join his home, he had never used the cane on a single one. The maid, she had her fair share of discipline that he had dished out on more than one occasion but it certainly had not been the first time they had spent together.
Had he been too harsh?
Watching her sob, hearing her cry, it had been painful and so he went against all better judgment and pulled her with him, into his arms to sit down. Maybe he should not have rewarded her behavior, but he did not want her to fear him either. Charles expected the rules to be followed but he was a far cry from a bad man. She knew that, didn’t she? He worried that the moment he let go she would run, slip through the front door, and never return.
“Promise me you will not break the rules again.” His hand smoothed over her back as her sobs settled down.
She hiccupped softly against his chest, his shirt soaked with her tears as she slowly pulled back. “I will not disobey you,” Delia said, her voice barely above a whisper.
