How about an excerpt from My Pirate Wife? Our heroine, Evelyn has been captured by the Spanish. However, she is determined to keep the secrets of the English pirates. This has earned her a trip to the dungeon…
Glancing around the dark room, she saw one other crewmember. He held a cat o’ nine tails. Evelyn gasped and clutched her fist to her mouth.
“Don’t worry, that is not for you. But we never fail to get the information we desire from our pirate prisoners.”
She remained rooted to the spot, and the Spaniard pushed her deeper into the dungeon. A large wooden cross stood along one wall, beside a rack of whips and leather straps.
“I’m sure you’ve heard of the rack.” He waited until she finally nodded. “Ah, as big as this ship is, we don’t have the space for one of those. But there are a number of implements like the cat o’ nine tails.” The dungeon crewman had not spoken, but when Lieutenant Almeda nodded, he took a practice swipe at the wooden cross to demonstrate the whip. Evelyn jumped at the sound as the individual whip-tails struck the hard wood.
“When a prisoner refuses to tell us the truth, he is stripped. His hands and feet are bound to the wooden beams. Perhaps you would like to experience this sensation?” He pressed her forward until her belly touched the place where the beams of the ‘X’ crossed. He gripped her wrists and held her hands high, against the cold wood.
“Non, I beg you to release me,” she squeaked out, but did not anger him by struggling.
He held her pinned against the wooden surface. “Men are whipped across the thin skin of their backs, but we find that women are more responsive to a thick leather strap across their bottoms.” Releasing her wrists, his hands gripped her butt cheeks through the material of her skirt. “Bare bottoms.”
