COVERNathan trailed his fingers up and down the inside of her arm. “Your skin is so soft.”

Bonnie rolled onto her back. “Everywhere?”

“Everywhere,” he replied, kissing her on the nose. “As much as I’d love to spend the rest of the night with you, we better get going. I told the sheriff  to come looking for me if I didn’t get back to town after two hours.”

“I don’t think it’s been two hours yet.” Nevertheless, Bonnie climbed out of bed and dressed quickly. She sat on the edge of the chair, watching Nathan pull on his pants.

“Keep staring at me like that and we’ll have another session of spank and fuck.”

Bonnie squirmed in her seat. “I’m game if you are.”

Nathan chuckled. “You are a naughty girl.”

#Maddie Taylor’s Luke, Heath and Aaron Jackson are hanging out with me today. Come on over and drool over these hot covers and sexy snippets ;)

Woohoo, I’m such a lucky girl. I have the Jackson boys hanging out with me today…alllll dayyy. Maybe even the rest of the week. Yay!!! I have to admit the hunk in the middle is my fav. Thanks so much, Maddie! So, let’s move onward in a time when men were men and women were glad of it 😉

PIC

 

Escape to the old west, to the Wyoming Territory, still a new and often unruly frontier where dangers abound.  Meet three brothers, Aaron, Heath and Luke Jackson, sons of a strong, hard worker, upstanding man albeit rather old fashioned who puts family above all else, and he will do anything to protect that family, even if that means taking his boys to the woodshed when necessary, or his wife over his knee.  He raises his sons to be the same way.  These are their stories.

 

Marshal’s Law   marsh

#1 Bestselling Erotic Western

 

Aaron Jackson:      The youngest of the three sons, Aaron veers from the family cattle ranching business to become the youngest marshal in the territory at twenty-eight.  He is a stickler for rules and order, so when he takes a wife, he expects no less from her.

 

Janelle has never been to a place like Laramie, in fact, due to an unexplained phenomenon, she has never experienced life in the old west at all, and it is a rude awakening.  She has also never met a man like Aaron Jackson, strong, powerful and so handsome he takes her breath away, and she has for darn sure never had a man take her over his knee, flip up her skirt, and enforce his authority with the flat of his hand, or a hairbrush, or the threat of a switch.  But she is forced by circumstances to accept him and his protection.

 

This is their love story: poignant, turbulent, and touching, Janelle must learn to adapt to her new life in 1878, and often inflexible Aaron, must learn to bend in order to keep her.

Tragedy strikes, putting Jenny in desperate straits, she does what she must, even lowering herself to work as a piano player at the local brothel in order to keep her home and provide for her young brother.  But the job is fraught with dangers, drunken lustful men, gunfights and she realizes she can’t continue when one day she comes face to face with Heath and his brothers during a bar brawl.  Thank goodness for her garish wig and disguise.  She decides she must marry quickly and Heath finds he can’t bear to watch as other men, weak, inappropriate men, vie for her affections.

#Author Amelia Smarts, ‘Fetching Charlotte Rose’

 

Hi Amelia, after I read this hot snippet, I find myself wishing I was Charlotte Rose and getting Fetched. Max sure is one hot #alpha #male 😉

AMELIA COVERBlurb:

As soon as she steps off the train into the hot western sun, Charlotte Rose wonders if she has made a mistake. Leaving Boston to take a job as the schoolmarm of the small town of Weston, Arizona had seemed like a good idea, but the man sent to fetch her from the station almost changes her mind. The handsome but uncivilized brute who introduces himself as Max Harrison not only calls Charlotte by her first name, he even demands that she change her outfit.

 

Her humiliation is complete when, after ignoring his advice to put on something more suitable for the summer weather, she faints from the heat. To her utter shame, Charlotte is forced to endure being undressed down to her underthings to cool down, and worse still, Max warns her in no uncertain terms that any further foolishness will earn her a sound spanking on her bare bottom. Yet somehow, despite his threat to chastise her in such a barbaric fashion, Charlotte cannot deny that being in Max’s presence sets her heart fluttering like nothing ever has before.

 

Though she may be the feistiest woman he has ever laid eyes on, Max finds himself longing to see more of Charlotte—much more, in fact—and when he discovers that she feels the same way, he sets about courting her. But Weston is a very different place from Boston, and Max makes it clear to Charlotte that he will do whatever needs doing to keep his girl safe, even if that means taking her over his knee for a good, hard spanking as often as her behavior warrants it.

 

Charlotte’s love for Max grows deeper with each passing day, but she cannot help wondering if he sees her as nothing more than a silly girl in need of his constant protection, and matters come to a head when a violent, hateful man with a grudge against Max seeks to disrupt their lives. Will Charlotte’s pride be her undoing, or will she finally get the chance to prove herself to Max?

 

Excerpt:

 

His expression softened slightly. “I don’t think ill of you. I think ill of him. He’s a cruel man. Listen carefully to what I say now. You’re not to dine with him again or spend any time alone with him. Is that understood?”

 

Charlotte flinched, and her temper flared. She suddenly remembered why Max always managed to irritate her. “Max, what right do you have to order me about? I’m a grown woman, perfectly capable of deciding whether I wish to spend time with someone, and I’ll thank you not to boss me. It galls me.”

 

Max raised his voice. “That’s too damn bad, young lady. You will mind my words. I speak them for your safety, not for your pleasure. As for the right to give you orders, I want you to be my woman, and unless I’m really bad at reading signals, you want that too.” He held a finger to her face. “If you want me to court you, Charlotte Rose, you must agree to obey me.”

 

Charlotte stared at him and then stammered her response. “That was the worst offer of courtship in the history of courtships.”

 

“That could very well be,” he growled. “But I’m not concerned about being courtly at the moment. I’m concerned about your stubborn pride getting in the way of your safety. Look here, Charlie. Whether or not you want me to court you, I insist you stay away from him or else answer to me. I won’t watch you harmed at that man’s hands, and I’ll do whatever needs doing to prevent it. Have I made myself clear?”

 

Charlotte looked into his fierce eyes and swallowed hard. She felt something blooming inside of her that she’d never felt before. It grew stronger than her irritation. It was a feeling of gratefulness and trust. For the first time, she felt like a man cared enough to protect her, and not just any man, a man she believed capable of doing so. What all but eliminated her annoyance was learning than he would ensure her safety even if she offered him nothing in return.

“Yes, sir. It’s clear,” she said, lowering her eyes to the floor.

“You agree to stay away from him then, Charlotte?”

“Yes, Max,” she said, her eyes still cast downward.

“Good girl.”

His two simple words caused her new feeling to grow, as though what bloomed inside of her had been sprinkled with rain.

“Have I mentioned yet that Simon is Tim’s father?”

Charlotte’s head shot up. “No.”

“Right. Now you know. That’s the man who beats his own son, and he punches women as easily as he bows to them.” Max removed his intense gaze from her face. He walked to a bench that had escaped water damage, sat down, and held out his hand. “Come here, Charlotte, and place yourself over my lap. I’m going to give you that spanking I’ve mentioned a couple of times.”

Author Bio

 

I’m an avid reader and writer of spanking romance novels, usually involving a cowboy, always involving a firm hand and a scorched ass. If you were to peek inside my Kindle, you’d find plenty of spanking romances as well as books by John Steinbeck, Margaret Atwood, Gillian Flynn, and other authors from disparate genres. What all of my favorite stories share are complex characters who draw me into their struggles and successes.

Swiftwater series Book 2 ‘Wild for You’ Blushing Books

COVER‘Wild for You’ #steamy #western  Swiftwater Series Book 2 🙂

If you’ve read, Charley’s Pride, you know that Charley is actually a young woman named Charlotte who meets her ‘dream man’ on a stage bound for Kansas. After a few twists and misunderstandings, she and rancher Slade Hazard finally get together and have their happily ever after.

Nathan Holt and Bonnie Blakely are the secondary characters and their story, ‘Wild for You’ is now available for download. Available in paperback too 🙂

Spanking New Western from Blushing Books.

I’m sharing an excerpt from my new #Historical #Western #Romance from Blushing Books 🙂

COVERBlurb:

Nathan Holt has a reputation in Swiftwater, and not one he was proud of. If he had half a brain, he’d stay far away from there. But there was a certain blue-eyed blonde holding his heart, not to mention a half-sister that he barely knew. He had left Swiftwater to protect them from his father. That reason no longer existed.

Bonnie Blakely had been taught to be a proper lady, but inside she felt anything but proper. She longed for a man – a strong, capable man – to put her across his knee. A brief encounter with Nathan Holt had held promise, but he left Swiftwater, Kansas years ago. He had promised he’d return, but as time passed without a word, Bonnie feared her dreams of his firm hand and unconditional love would never be fulfilled.

Excerpt:

“You are a naughty girl.” His low drawl made her toes curl. “Your pa didn’t do you anyfavors by not paddling your ass when you were a little girl.” He unbuckled his belt, but left it
hanging as he moved to the wall where there were various farm implements.
Bonnie’s heart jolted with excitement. She licked her lips, her gaze tracking his every
move. “I told you Papa spoiled me.” Dampness gathered between her legs and trickled down her
inner thighs. She could smell her own arousal.

“That day you came to the jail, I swore I’d never seen a more beautiful woman in my
life.” He took a riding crop off the wall, examined it, then put it back. He moved further along
and reached for a coiled rope. “Then, when you opened your mouth and spewed such
vindictiveness toward a woman you claimed took your man, it sickened me to think such a
beauty could be so ugly. A man can’t be took if he doesn’t want to be.”

His words were harsh and unyielding. Bonnie briefly squeezed her eyes shut against the
enormous ache in her heart. When she opened them again and looked at him, his expression was unreadable. She swallowed, nearly choking on her own saliva. Shivers of uncertainty as to why he really invited her here crept along her arms and legs. He must think her vile and rightly so.
She never should have come here. Was it only his intent to humiliate her? Had her feelings
toward him been one-sided all along? God, she hoped not. Her shoulders sagged under his stern
scrutiny. She’d take what was coming; she deserved to be punished. She lowered her head, not
wanting to witness his fathomless stare any longer, but his finger under her chin wouldn’t allow
her the advantage.

“But, when I told you how a man could truly hurt a woman, break her until
there’s nothing left, you pleaded with me to forget your vendetta. You showed compassion and
that meant something to me.” A gentle brush of his thumb wiped away her tears.

“I, I was wrong, so wrong to come to you with such a horrid idea.” She shuddered.
“Charlotte believes things happen for a reason. If I had been the one in her shoes, I wouldn’t
have been so forgiving.”

Nathan squatted in front of her, his breath mingling with hers. “In my dreams you came
to me naked, your long blonde hair covering your breasts. I’d turn you over my knee and spank
you until your ass turned red, then I carried you to my bed. I’d get down on my knees and latch
my mouth onto your sweet pussy.” He paused. “Do my words offend you?”

Bonnie’s heartbeat ramped loudly in her ears. What he implied had to be scandalous and
downright filthy, an act no proper lady would ever allow a man to do, but she’d welcome
Nathan’s tongue anywhere on or in her body, especially that part now heavy and throbbing and
pounding with every beat of her heart. “Oh, God, Nathan, no. Those words don’t offend me at all.”

His hand fisted in her hair and he yanked, leaving her feeling open and vulnerable.
“Would they excite you if another man said the same words? Would they arouse you like you are
right now?”

“God, no,” she whispered fiercely. “I want only your hands and mouth upon me.”

“Don’t lie to me.”

“I’m not. I swear.”

His nostrils flared. Bonnie swore her woman’s scent filled the barn. “Now is not the time
to think about the pleasures your ripe body surely holds. You’ve pushed me too far with your
talk about finding another man to tame you. I’m the only man for you. I’m the only man who
will punish you and by the time I’m finished, you’ll have an excruciating ride home. It’s time for
a reckoning sorely needed on your part.” He released his hold on her hair and stood up. Bonnie
licked her lips in anticipation. He stepped away and she swayed forward as if pulled by an
invisible thread connecting them together.

The rasp of leather being pulled singed her ears and she winced. He picked up the coiled
rope at his feet. “What’s the rope for?” She asked.

Saturday Spankings

Another Saturday is upon us and that means it’s time for Saturday Spanks. Release date for ‘Wild for You’, is June 23. I picked out my cover so now all I have to do is wait until Blushing Books fixes it up and then I can share. Yay! I love covers. My contribution this week is from ‘Wild for You’.

Because of her jealousy, Bonnie had placed Charlotte in harms way. Charlotte forgave her, but she’s having a tough time forgiving herself. Never punished for her nasty deed, Nathan offers to rectify the situation and Bonnie takes him up on it.

So, does your offer still stand?” Bonnie asked.

            “That depends. Is this the proper lady who bought me lunch standing in front of me or the naughty girl in need of correction.”

            She flushed. “The naughty girl,” she whispered softly.

            “The naughty girl… what?”

            Lord, he wanted her to say it. “The naughty girl in need of correction.”

Saturday Spankings

 

Welcome to another #Saturday #Spanks. Today I’m sharing 8 ( a teeny bit more) sentences from my new book, ‘Wild for You’, the sequel to ‘Charley’s Pride’. It’s now in the hands of my publisher, Blushing Books. Yay! Can’t get any better than that. Please take the time to visit the list of authors below my post for some more sexy snips. Have a great weekend ❤

Setting the scene:

Although all had been forgiven, Bonnie still suffered from a bad case of the guilts. She’d been downright nasty to a woman who turned out to be the half sister of a man she found herself physically attracted too. The fact that she had no idea Charlotte and Nathan were related didn’t lessen the burden of her conscience. For two years, Bonnie dreamed of the day Nathan Holt would return to Swiftwater. She craved to be turned over his knee, to the feel his rough hands upon her body, correcting her, punishing her. Bonnie was used to getting her own way, but Nathan wasn’t a man to be dictated to.

            “You’re tying me up?” She glanced around at the bales of straw.  “I thought you were just going to, you know, put me over your knee and use your hand.”

           “Are you telling me how I should punish you?” He asked sternly, avoiding her question. The low rumble of his voice made her sex ooze even more. How embarrassing. Her bloomers were sopping wet.

            “No, of course not.” She shifted on her knees, the slight movement carried the scent of her arousal to her nose.

            “You’re a woman full of fire. I’m a man who’s not stupid.”

            “I never said you were stupid.”

            “Do you really expect me to believe you won’t put up a fight while I’m blistering your ass?”

Saturday SpankingsHowdy! Good news. ‘Wild for You’, my sequel to ‘Charley’s Pride’ has been accepted by Blushing Books. YAY! As soon as I get the cover art I’ll share. I picked a hot blond cowboy;) Woohoo. (Shirtless, of course 🙂 CP was a sweet romance, but WFY is spicy hot! This week, I’m sharing 8 unedited sentences from ‘Wild for You’, Nathan and Bonnie’s story. Check the list below my post for more delicious teasers. Have a great day!

Setting the scene: For too long, Bonnie had dreamed about seeing Nathan Holt again and here he was, in the flesh.

There was no mistaking that handsome face, rakishly long blond hair and piercing green eyes. Buzzing sounded in her ears. Dear Lord, she felt faint.

 “Hello, Bonnie, it’s nice to see you again.”

His lazy drawl sent goosebumps up and down her arms. Her knees knocked beneath her dress. Nathan Holt was absolutely gorgeous from the top of his head to the very tips of his worn boots, not to mention everything else in between. Muscles and bumps were where they were supposed to be. She swallowed hard. She sure wouldn’t mind exploring those bumps a lot closer. 

So, how do you think Nathan and Bonnie’s first meeting went? Smooth?  Don’t bet on it.

Saturday Spankings

#SAT #SPANKS

Welcome again to another Saturday Spanks. My sequel to ‘Charley’s Pride’, is just about ready for submission. CP’s secondary characters are, Nathan Holt and Bonnie Blakely. Bonnie hated Charlotte on sight, mainly because she believes Charlotte took Slade, a sexy as hell rancher away from her. Bonnie plans her revenge by paying Nathan a visit in jail and telling him Charlotte ‘Charley’ had them all fooled.

Nathan’s not a happy camper. So what if he stopped a stage? No one was hurt or killed, but the town sheriff orders him to leave town. It just didn’t make sense.

Setting the scene: This is the first time Nathan and Bonnie meet in ‘Charley’s Pride.’

Nathan’s in jail and Bonnie brings him his last meal before he is set to be released. She tells him that Charley, the young boy on the stage was really a female by the name of Charlotte. Nathan is stunned and when Bonnie asks him to punish Charlotte, he becomes angry, demanding to know why.

He wagged a finger at her. “Come on, little girl, tell me the truth.”
“Stop calling me a little girl.”
He chuckled. “Let me guess. I bet this Charlotte took your boyfriend away and you’re hoping I go after her and teach her a lesson. Am I right?” Bonnie pursed her lips and he grinned. “I knew it.”
“That’s not it at all.”
“Would you like to know what I do to little girls who tell lies?”

Don’t forget to check out the authors below. You may find your next hot read. Have a great weekend ❤

 

 

#Saturday #Spanks Blog Hop!

Saturday SpankingsWelcome to #Sat #Spanks! I’ve been MIA for a while. Working on ‘Wild for You’, my sequel to ‘Charley’s Pride‘ and I’m happy to say it’s just about finished. Some polishing up is needed. Charley’s Pride’, is more on the sweet side, but ‘Wild for You’ is spicy hot. ;). If you’ve read CP, you’ll remember the secondary characters, Nathan Holt and Bonnie Blakely. Nathan and Bonnie have only one brief scene is CP, but the two were immediately attracted to one another.

Turns out that, Nathan and Charlotte aka ‘Charley’, are brother and sister. Something they both didn’t know. Once things get rolling, I’ll be sure to share some snippets. Today my eight sentences are from Charley’s Pride and her tangle with Nathan.  Don’t forget to check out the list below my post for some more snippets. Have a great weekend!

Setting the scene,

Nathan holds up the stage Slade and Charley are riding on. So far, no one’s guessed Charley is a female. Nathan really isn’t a bad guy and decides to let them go, but Charlotte doesn’t like bullies. This wasn’t her first clash with the ‘bandit’, but she couldn’t let him leave without telling him what she thought about his bullish ways.

“Hey you, big man with the gun.”

Nathan halted in his tracks and swung around. “You can’t be talking to me, kid.” He sounded shocked and looked surprised.
“Want to bet?” Charlotte marched up to him and stood nose to nose. “You shot at this stage, bullied Basil and for what? Just for some sick fun?” She kicked him in the shins. “How’s this for fun?”

Of course, Poor Slade is wincing right about now. They had a chance to get away and the Charley blew it.

Blurb:

Separated from her father for ten years, Charlotte was determined to leave Boston and travel to Kansas with or without her mother’s permission. Propriety be damned! If it wasn’t proper for a young girl to travel alone, she would disguise herself as a boy.

A man was considered lucky if he had a steady job,  a roof over his head and an obedient wife. Ranch foreman Slade Hazard already had two out of the three. A couple of docile ladies lived in Swiftwater, Kansas, and would fit his needs nicely. He might not be in love, but he’d be a faithful husband, a good provider and hopefully, in due time, a father. Yep, he knew exactly what he wanted, that is, until he met Charlotte “Charley” Henry.

The train ride to Cheyenne had gone off without a hitch, just as Charlotte thought it would. The jaunt on the stage taking her to Swiftwater, Kansas, should be a cinch.  Even better, the tall, broad shouldered man sharing the stagecoach was a dream come true. A pity she couldn’t reveal her true gender to the handsome Slade Hazard, and try a bit of flirting. Then the stagecoach is held up by a trio of bandits. Slade is determined to keep the passengers safe, even if he has to threaten the unruly ‘boy’ with a good strapping.

Charley’s sassy mouth lands her into trouble and when the truth of her gender is in danger, she has no choice. She must reveal herself to Slade.

Charlotte had never been spanked in her entire life, but Slade soon remedies the matter more than once. Her dream man wouldn’t dare take her across his knee, but would she be content with a man she could run roughshod over?

Slade thought he knew what he had wanted in a wife, but he actually enjoys sparring with the fiery redhead. Is it possible to fall in love at first sight? When Charlotte disappears just as the prisoner is released, more than one man fears for her safety. But who will find her first?
