YAY! Hope you’re ready for some old-timey starchy, sexy, Regency-era romantic spanking!

Click for blurb and buy links

Over five seasons, Miss Harmony Barrett has managed to repel every gentleman of consequence and engineer a debacle at Almack’s so horrifying that her waltzing privileges are revoked. If she’s not in the library reading about Mongol hordes, she’s embarrassing her family or getting involved in impulsive scrapes.

Enter the Duke of Courtland, a man known for his love of duty and decorum. Through a vexing series of events, he finds himself shackled to Miss Barrett in matrimony. But all is not lost. The duke harbors a not-so-secret affinity for spanking and discipline…and his new wife is ever in need of it. Will the mismatched couple find their way to marital happiness? Or will the duke be forever Disciplining the Duchess?

Disciplining the Duchess is now available at Amazon,, Smashwords, All Romance Ebooks, and other ebook sites. If you click the highlighted words they’ll take you right to the purchase page.

The book is also available in paperback at

If you read it and like it, I hope you’ll consider leaving a review for me at Amazon, Goodreads, or wherever you purchased the book! Your word of mouth is what helps me continue writing and I’m so grateful for all your support.

Thanks for your patience while I got this book ready to go. The next book will be back to contemporary BDSM, and the world of ballet. Watch for Waking Kiss hopefully sometime in early summer!

coming soon

    I know is early, so I don’t wanna give any spoilers, but I think that’s your sweetest book to date, I was infatuated through the whole reading with the caracthers and with whole environment. I got say thought that if I had lived in the regency-era, I would be bloated all the time and be mouthy about it. How could people possible eat that much?

    Ah, the snippetease of Waking Kiss in the end is great, by the way. I know I’m bias, but I’ll make my #TeamRubio shirt as soon as possible.

      Aw, thank you Maryara. I love the Regency era so I was hoping my readers could get into it too.

      And if you make #TeamRubio shirts I will need one of those! I love him too. I just started on his book, called Fever Dream. He doesn’t get this girl in Waking Kiss, but he definitely gets the next girl (after I put him through the ringer a little more!!!!)

        Of course, all international ballet superstars need groupies, uniformed groupies hahaha

        I am not kidding…you are going to go crazy for Rubio. 🙂 🙂 🙂

        The fun part is you inspired me to write a Brazilian character. So he is all yours.

    • annabeljoseph Posted March 2, 2013 10:18 pm

      I do love how that cover came out. I found the photo and I was like…PERFECT. I just hope no one else uses it before my book comes out. Stress, lol.

  • Maryara Dos Anjos Posted March 2, 2013 7:54 pm

    I know!! I feel torn, Ryan and I have a relationship that lasts than 2 years!!! I’m feeling so unfaithful already hahahahaha

    • annabeljoseph Posted March 2, 2013 10:19 pm

      oh my gosh, Fernando Rubio is going to test your thing for Ryan BIG TIME. While I am letting Waking Kiss rest for a while, I am writing Rubio’s story and my gosh, he is so adorable and such an asshole at the same time. He might be my new Jeremy Gray–the character everyone loves to hate. And wants to sleep with. 🙂
