“You wouldn’t dare” is a wonderful phrase to come across in a spanking romance. It shows that the heroine is sassy enough to put up an argument but it’s also a sure-fire guarantee that she is going to get her bottom reddened very soon indeed. Because no hero in the history of ever has responded to being told he wouldn’t dare by saying “No, you’re right. Sorry about that. Don’t know what I was thinking of there.”
So I have gathered a few some examples of ladies proclaiming – against all possible evidence to the contrary – that the hero simply wouldn’t dare.
First off, here’s the eponymous heroine of Lorette and the Wild Thyme Hotel by Georgia Harries. Lorette’s already been spanked once by the hero so you’d think she’d know better.
“You’ll mind your tongue and forget you ever found this pistol, or else …” he hissed, as he carefully removed the bullets from the gun cradle.
She scowled. “Or else what?”
“You know fine well what else! It’ll be another spanking for you. And this time with your knickers down. Since the first time clearly wasn’t enough for you!”
Lorette screeched in laughter. Although something in his words caused her heart to race in a way that was entirely new to her.
“Oh I see! How boring and predictable! With your rough country ways! You wouldn’t dare do such a thing! Not again!”
Yeah, what are the chances, eh?

You don’t actually get to see the spanking but I am going to assume that it definitely happened.
The next snippet is from Mary Wehr’s excellent To Have and To Scold – one of the Sons of Johnny Hastings books. Yes, the heroine Annie Dobbs actually says those words to hero, Matthew Caine. Sweetheart, he’s one of the sons of Johnny Hastings – those boys never miss an opportunity to deliver a well-deserved spanking.
“Don’t go getting an innocent man involved in your childish games, Annie Dobbs. Now you’re coming with me real peaceful like,” he set her on her feet, “or else.”
“Yeah,” he shot back and snatched hold of her wrist once again. “One more word and I’ll turn you over my knee right here and tan you proper.”
Annie pursed her lips and gave his arm another yank. “You wouldn’t dare.“
He chuckled dryly. “How long have we been neighbors, Annie?” She opened her mouth and he cut her off with a stern glower. “I’ve known you since the day you were born. You’ve pestered me from the moment you began to walk. You know darn well that whenever I threatened you with a spanking I made good my threat, didn’t I?”
Yup, I think it’s safe to say Annie’s got a spanking coming up in the very near future.
Now a couple of panels from The Daily Mirror’s Jane comic strip during the war years. Jane gets a taste of military discipline.
|You know what? I think he would.|
|Oh look, he totally did dare.|
Next there’s Eddie, My Love from Patricia Green’s Romantek series. June’s having a fully immersive virtual reality dream experience set in 1950. She’s just met hard-boiled detective, Eddie Strong who isn’t taking kindly to her flirting with other ‘Joe’s.
“A gal could get herself in serious trouble the way you’re going, June.”
This was a dream. What kind of trouble could she get into? “Don’t threaten me.”
“Look at one more Joe the way you just did and I’ll take you over my knee to teach you
She shot him an icy look. “You wouldn’t dare.”
He nodded and that hard grin was back. “I wouldn’t, huh?”
You don’t want to make the sexy detective angry, there, June. Oh wait, yes you do. Keep on doing what you’re doing. In fact throw your drink over him. See how that works out for you.
Lastly, we’ve got Superman come to join our eclectic little collection. He doesn’t actually administer the spanking, but he certainly seems to be enjoying it.
|She’s some kind of Space-Queen. You can tell by the outfit.|
|Brilliantly the galactic space-viscount or whatever-he-is administering the spanking is called Evad.
Evad! Ha ha! That’s just Dave backwards.
|Good work, Dave. You play it cool there, mate.|
So, any more examples of soon-to-be-spanked brats telling their soon-to-be-spankers “You wouldn’t dare!” that you can think of? Please share in the comments.
