Here, have a moment with one of its characters!
In honor of Blushing Mischief’s ‘A Spank In Time’s’ release day, we thought we would give you a little look into just who you’ll find within its pages of delight.
Meet Lord Alexander Townshend, Marquis of Winchester, a true nobleman with a kinky bent to his character. I’ve sacrificed an afternoon of my life to step into a time machine back to the early 1600s to chat with Alex. The things I do for my readers. You’re welcome.
Lord Winchester’s manservant, a waifish young man named Mark, guides me to the Marquis’s chambers. I am intimidated by the vastness of the castle, and even more so by the towering man standing up from his ornate chair when I enter. When nervous, I default to cheerful, and when cheerful, I blurt stuff out.
- Hi, Alexander! Nice pad. May I call you Alex?
Pad? He shakes his head. A corner of his mouth quirks up when he takes me in. Good afternoon, fair lady. You may call me Milord.
- What or who is the greatest love of your life… milord?
That position is still vacant. As a single nobleman, I’d have to say my castle and lands occupy a great deal of acreage in my heart. I’m also exceedingly fond of my collection of crops and whips. Most useful, they are.
- What is your most marked characteristic?
Without wishing to sound conceited, my appearance is pleasing to the eye. My personality traits… Now that is an entirely different matter. I invite you to find out.
Lord Winchester’s gaze roams over my body and he smirks. I shift and eye the half-open chest that houses his aforementioned collection of crops and whips. Is it hot in here?
- What is your greatest regret?
I have none.
- Which talent would you most like to have?
I am not lacking in any area, Miss Quinn. Again, I invite you to find out for yourself.
- What is the quality you most like in a man?
- What is the quality you most like in a woman?
He tilts his head and smiles a little, as if losing himself in thought. I tap with my pen on my notepad to draw his attention.
Curves. A round bottom and small waist. I have a peculiar preference for the female backside.
- What is the trait you most deplore in yourself?
Perhaps my lack of inhibition, though I feel it has brought me many good things in the past.
- What do you consider the most overrated virtue?
Chastity. And you, Miss Quinn?
- That is… I don’t want to say irrelevant, because I’m hoping this afternoon will take a turn for the sexy. But let’s focus on my… kinda boring questions first. On what occasions do you lie?
A man in my position doesn’t have to lie, Miss Quinn.
He pauses, reconsiders.
Recently, I’ve set up quite an expedient situation for myself. A lie or two by omission was required. I’m not proud of it, but the fruits of my labors are sweet.
- If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
Perhaps it would be convenient to have less specific predilections.
He smiles again, wide and charming, and stands up, extending his hand.
But that would make life dreadfully boring, wouldn’t it? Would you join me for a… walk around the premises?
I swallow hard. My pen feels awkward in my fingers, so I stuff it in my purse. I have time. Nobody is expecting me back. Reaching a decision, I stand up and take his hand, much larger than mine.
I’ll be back. At some point.
