Spanking, interstellar drama, more spanking and political intrigue characterize Devlin O’Neill’s newest book, which follows the fortunes of Commander Paladin, a man battling the forces of a hierarchy determined to put him out to pasture after he lost both his eyes in a pirate attack. (Don’t worry, he got them back again, albeit in the form of cybernetic technology.)
This isn’t just a spanking book from the renowned romance author, this is quite a masterpiece of storytelling, with lush alien environments and high stakes battles for space supremacy. The novel is focused not only on Commander Paladin, but two of his students, Alexia Trebeck and Abigail Rhodes, whose friendship with one another and with Paladin spans galaxies. In his travels Commander Paladin finds cause to impart discipline on numerous female bottoms, it’s safe to say that there’s a sort of spanking for everyone in this novel, including two totally different types of F/F spanking.
Paladin is a likable dominant / top (without being a cliche) and the female protagonists are all blessed with agency and spunk, standing on their own two feet – except for when they’re over Paladin’s lap for some well deserved discipline. Commander Paladin, Pirate Hunter is as heart warming as it is bottom warming and I cannot recommend it highly enough.
