At His Pleasure
Raoul is the archetypal Alpha Male. He's not only prepared to exercise his authority over his spunky young wife, but he's also utterly competent and in command in his role as Lord of the Castle.
In the first book, His Word is Law, he captures his bride and on their wedding night, introduces her to the discipline regime with which he will govern her behaviour. When she finds castle life oppressive and takes flight, he pursues her, and she finds out the hard way that he meant what he said.
Her Shaming finds Bess trying to fit into castle life and make use of the servants she is in charge of. An unfortunate episode with a deceitful serving maid leads Raoul to make her punishment into a public display, although it's the private time they have together afterwards which Bess should have dreaded.
Bess is still finding it hard to adapt to her new life in Eyes Like a Hawk. Raoul introduces her to the sport of falconry but her impatience is her undoing. Although Raoul is beginning to appreciate her courage, he has to curb her independence and disobedience, and he does this in the way that he always has and always will.
