Old West Romance

Cover Change and Preorder Links

I never thought I would do this, but after receiving numerous messages and comments both privately and publicly ranging from concern to disgust to outrage, I decided to change my cover for When He Returns: An Enemies-to-Lovers Romance. Never has one of my covers been so controversial. LOL! Comments I received were along the lines of it looking like a severed head, like he was about to snap her neck, hostage negotiation, and a drugged-out heroine. These are not the right impressions to make for a romance book! On the other side were people who loved it and thought it looked sexy–that the man looked dominant and the woman looked starry-eyed and innocent (I was in that camp, obviously, or I never would have picked it in the first place).

Anyway, after a day of consideration and fielding comments, I finally came to a decision. I needed to change it, even after having shared it everywhere. Sure, my loyal readers who know what I write would still buy the book, but I need to reach new readers too. If my cover gives the impression that it’s a horror book, I’m not going to attract the right readers. Luckily, I was able to keep the same look, feel, and people as the original cover. See the before and after below. What do you think?

About the Book

Wade Hunter didn’t want a family. Between dodging his drunk father’s blows and watching his mother die, he knew at the age of eleven he’d be better off alone. He lived on the run for a couple years–hungry and cold often, but at least he was free. Then the local marshal caught him stealing and gave him only two choices: Spend time in jail or join his family.

Sadie Shaw, the marshal’s eldest daughter, had enough brothers and sisters, and she wanted another sibling like a dog wants fleas. She’s dismayed when her kindhearted pa once again brings home a lost child, and it doesn’t help that this one is surly and arrogant. Worse, he thinks that because he’s older, he’s under no obligation to mind her household rules.

Wade and Sadie battle wills often as they grow into adulthood, burgeoning both their dislike for each other and their grudging respect. When faced with a problem that requires their unity, will they be able to set aside their differences, or will the strife they face only tear them apart?

Publisher’s Note: When He Returns is a coming-of-age, enemies-to-lovers romance with adult spanking and sexual scenes. If you don’t like these themes, please don’t buy this book.

Old West Romance

Cover reveal for new book coming January 26!

Hi, readers, and Happy New Year! I wanted to let you know I’m finishing up a book that will be released January 26, and I’m in love with the cover. I had to share it early.

Like my other books, it’s a western, but it’s quite different in that it’s a coming-of-age, enemies-to-lovers romance. The book opens from the perspective of the hero at thirteen years old, and we go on a journey with him and the twelve-year-old heroine as they navigate some tough years to adulthood.

About When He Returns

Wade Hunter didn’t want a family. Between dodging his drunk father’s blows and watching his mother die, he knew at the age of eleven he’d be better off alone. He lived on the run for a couple years—hungry and cold often, but at least he was free. Then the local marshal caught him stealing and gave him only two choices: Spend time in jail or join his family.

Sadie Shaw, the marshal’s eldest daughter, had enough brothers and sisters, and she wanted another sibling as much as a dog wants fleas. She’s dismayed when her kindhearted pa once again brings home a lost child, and it doesn’t help that this one is surly and arrogant. Worse, he seems to think that because he’s older he’s under no obligation to mind her household rules.

Wade and Sadie battle wills often as they grow into adulthood, burgeoning both their dislike for each other and their grudging respect. When faced with a problem that requires their unity, will they be able to set aside their differences, or will the strife they face only tear them apart?

Publisher’s Note: When He Returns is a coming-of-age, enemies-to-lovers romance with a whole lot of heart, a bit of heat in the form of adult spanking and sex, and a well-earned happy ending.

Sneak Peek

If you’re wondering whether When He Returns has spanking and sex, like you’ve come to expect from my books, fear not! There’s plenty of that when the characters reach adulthood. Enjoy this sneak peek of the very grown up Wade, who turns out to be quite the disciplinarian.

***

“Go sit on the bench, Grace,” Wade ordered sternly. “I’ll brush down the horses and then we’ll get this over with.” He didn’t acknowledge Sadie’s presence except to request that she set the lamp next to the hitching post so he could see what he was doing.

While he groomed the horses, Sadie sat next to Grace on the bench. “Are you all right?” she asked softly.

Grace nodded. “We talked on the way home. He told me how worried he is about me and how he wants me to have a happy life.” She shrugged and looked down at her hands. “I guess I was kind of testing him when I didn’t come home tonight. I didn’t know if he would care enough to come get me.”

Sadie completely understood Grace’s reason for disobeying Wade. She imagined it would be a nice feeling knowing someone would rescue her, even from herself.

“You know what this reminds me of?” Grace said. “When me and Miles and Luke ran away. Pa was madder than an old wet hen when he came to fetch us. It was terrible seein’ him so sore, but it let us know he cared at least. I never doubted Pa’s love after that and I never ran away again.”

Sadie distinctly remembered the event Grace spoke of. The reason the children had run away in the first place was because Sadie had made them feel unwanted and had informed them that they weren’t her real brothers and sister. In truth, it was Sadie who had been feeling unwanted by her pa, and she’d taken it out on the others instead of telling him.

Sadness gripped her. She wished she’d been the one to run away. Would her pa have come looking for her? She’d never know.

“It won’t hurt too bad,” Grace told her, noticing Sadie’s morose expression but mistaking the cause of it.

Sadie forced the sadness of the memory away. “I know. Wade loves you too much to cause you any real harm.”

Grace nodded and shifted her gaze to Wade, who was walking toward them holding a leather strap folded in two. A flicker of apprehension lit Grace’s eyes, but otherwise she didn’t react. Sadie, on the other hand, quickly moved away, keeping her eyes glued on him the entire time. He was a formidable sight. A tall, strong man with a stern expression holding an instrument of punishment was not something she’d witnessed before.

Sadie nearly panicked when he turned his stern expression on her. “You staying for this, Sadie?”

She nodded, unable to speak. It was more than curiosity or concern for her sister that was compelling her to stay. She doubted she would have been able to leave without being physically removed, such was the magnetic pull of Wade’s presence.

From that moment forward, all of Wade’s attention focused on Grace. He took hold of her arm and helped her to feet. Not letting go, he stared hard into her eyes. “You know why you’re getting punished?”

“Yes,” Grace said, her voice almost too quiet to hear. Her eyes were wide and her lips slightly parted.

“I don’t want to punish you, Grace, but I won’t tolerate your disobedience. Anytime you disobey, you’re going to find yourself out here in the barn getting a licking. And I think after experiencing it once, you’re not going to want to feel it again.”

Sadie was riveted. Though up until that point she’d thought she wouldn’t mind trading places with Grace, hearing him scold her with such a stern voice made her thankful she was not the recipient of his displeasure.

“Turn around and bend over, place your palms on the bench,” he instructed, letting go of her arm.

Grace bit her lip and hesitated only a moment before she obeyed. As she bent into the requested position, her long blonde hair fell in a wave over the side of her face, making her expression impossible for Sadie to read. She looked small and unsteady, like one lick of the strap would make her topple over.

“Move your feet apart slightly,” Wade ordered.

After she shifted her stance, she looked to be in a much more stable position for punishment, and Sadie marveled over Wade somehow knowing that. It was transfixing how firm and in control he was, how he knew just how to prepare Grace to receive the strap.

Grace let out a small cry when Wade reached down and pulled up her skirts. He laid them over her back, revealing her thin, white drawers over the slope of her bottom. Her drawers fell to her mid-thigh area and were hemmed with lace.

Her legs shook, and Sadie felt a pang of sympathy for her. It was clear she was afraid and embarrassed to be undressed in preparation for a spanking.

Wade’s voice held a trace of sympathy too, though his intention to follow through was clear. “Gracie, I’m going to give you five licks over your drawers. You ever defy my orders again, I’ll strap you bare, and it will hurt even more.”

“I won’t defy you again, Wade,” she whimpered.

“I hope not. Now hold still and it’ll be over soon.” With that, he drew his arm back and landed the first stroke across her quivering seat.

“Oh!” she gasped, sounding surprised.

Before she could react further, Wade strapped her again, harder than before.

She yelped and bent a knee forward, twisting away from the pain. Wade reached out, took hold of her hip, and placed her back in position without a word.

He whipped her again, on the part of her backside where her bottom and thighs met.

She screeched with pain. “Please no more!” She stood and turned around, flinging herself against him, burying her face in his chest. “It hurts so much. I’ve learned my lesson,” she wailed. Her skirts remained in a bundled heap around her waist.

Wade didn’t comfort her. One hand fisted the strap, and the other rested on his hip. “I know it hurts, Grace. That’s the point. Right now you have two more coming, but if you don’t immediately get back into position, we’re going to start over.”

#NewRelease! Justice for Elsie (Mail-Order Grooms Book 3)

ASJFEecover2I’m excited to share that the third standalone book in my Mail-Order Grooms series, Justice for Elsie, is live on Amazon! It’s only $2.99 or free if you’re a Kindle Unlimited subscriber. This will likely be the last book published as part of this series.

To some of you, the book may look familiar because it’s an expanded version of a story that appeared in the Hero Undercover anthology, called Justice, Roughly. I decided to develop it a bit and release it as part of the Grooms series.

About Justice for Elsie

Elsie Fin is hell-bent on revenge against her father’s murderer. She develops a successful cattle-rustling operation as payback but is soon in over her head. That’s when she decides she needs a good husband, a man strong enough to take control and loyal enough to protect her from the law, so she places a mail-order groom advertisement in the paper.

While Elsie seeks her groom, she hires Wyatt Parker to help her around the ranch. Little does she know, he’s actually an undercover deputy tasked with gaining her trust and verifying the marshal’s suspicion of her theft.

Wyatt never imagined a beautiful, sweet woman like Elsie would be the mastermind behind such a serious illegal activity. Soon his loyalties are split between the law and a woman whose kindness and vulnerability bring out powerful feelings of tenderness in him.

Compelled to protect the wayward woman, Wyatt makes covert plans to rescue her, reasoning that Elsie is more in need of a spanking than life in prison. But will she end up behind bars or married to her mail-order groom before Wyatt can reveal his feelings for her and carry out his plan to save her?

Warning: Justice for Elsie is a historical western romance containing sexual scenes and domestic discipline, including punishment spanking. If these themes offend you, please don’t buy this book.

Author’s note: This is an expanded version of the story previously titled Justice, Roughly, which appeared in the Hero Undercover anthology.

Excerpt from Justice for Elsie

Elsie’s heart pounded. What had caused Wyatt such anger? He strode the few steps to her and grasped her arm near the shoulder. “You have a death wish, woman?” When she didn’t respond, he asked, “What were you thinking, drawing your gun on a man having words with me? He could have killed you!”

“I-I wanted to protect you,” she stammered, trying to wrench her arm free, to no avail. His grip wasn’t tight enough to inflict anything more than discomfort, but it was unyielding. Wyatt was a powerful man, much more powerful than she’d realized.

“I don’t need you to protect me, Elsie,” he bellowed. “I don’t need any woman coming in the middle of my argument with another man, putting herself in danger on my behalf.” He gave her a shake. “You listening to me, woman?”

She’d never seen this severe, chastising side to Wyatt, and she felt desperate for him to understand her motivation. “But it’s not your fight, it’s mine. And you’re injured! I didn’t want him to hurt you.”

“I would prefer for me to lose a fistfight than for you to lose a gunfight… or win one, for that matter, and end up in prison!” He walked with purpose toward the front of the barn, hauling her along with him.

“What are you doing?” she squeaked, though she had a strong suspicion of his intention when he dragged her in the direction of the bench.

He sat down and dragged her between his legs before toppling her over his right knee. Wyatt wrapped his other leg over hers, pinning her in place. His left hand fell in such a hard swat on her clothed bottom that she gasped and arched upward.

“Teaching you a lesson about safety,” he growled. Grasping the waist of her trousers, he tugged them down, while she squirmed helplessly between his legs.

She felt mortified when the cool morning air wafted over her bare bottom. Before, she’d felt some measure of control. Now she felt like a bad little girl, helpless to prevent her punishment, especially when he proceeded with giving her naked backside a proper, no-nonsense tanning. Sharp swats peppered her bottom and the tops of her thighs, causing such a sting that tears flooded her eyes nearly immediately. “Stop this, Wyatt! I’m ordering you to stop.”

“Order away, missy,” he responded, smacking even harder. “You aren’t in charge at the moment.” Her whole bottom blazed, with each spank igniting a new fire on her poor unprotected cheeks.

“Ow!” she sobbed. “Wyatt, please. I was trying to help you; I don’t deserve this!”

“Ha!” he responded. “I don’t know of anyone who deserves this more. Would your pa have let you go and do something so dangerous without consequences?”

His mention of her father brought forth a new wave of grief and pain. She’d acted recklessly ever since her father’s death, a result of hatred for her neighbor and grief over how her pa had died before his time. No one had ever cared to stop her. “No, he would want me safe. Please, it hurts…”

He stopped spanking and rested his hand on her hot bottom. “I want you safe too, Elsie. I care about you. That’s the only reason I’m blistering your backside.”

Old West Romance

Trapper Jack is ready to growl in your ear

Greetings! I’m excited to announce that the audiobook Claimed by the Mountain Man has been released! If you like tough alpha men, adventure, and lots of steamy spankings and sex, then pop in your earbuds, sit back, and enjoy the ride.

I’ve been told by more than one reader that Trapper Jack is the most intimidating Dom out of all the heroes I’ve written so far, but he does have a soft spot for his naughty Nettie, which you’ll discover if you listen to the story.

Below is the entire first chapter to whet your appetite.

About Claimed by the Mountain Man

Times are hard in Montana in the mid-1800s, and when Nettie finds herself impoverished, desperate, and alone after the death of her husband, she flees the town of Helena to escape the clutches of the local saloon owner. But living off the land quickly proves much more difficult than she’d hoped, and after days without food she resorts to stealing from Jack Abrams, a gruff mountain man and trapper who lives a secluded, uncomplicated life in the woods.

Jack doesn’t take kindly to being stolen from and when he catches her red-handed, Nettie ends up lying naked over his knee for a long, hard spanking. To her surprise, however, after her punishment Jack offers her food and shelter in return for cooking, cleaning, and doing as she is told. But Nettie is determined to never rely on a man again, and with a belly full of food and renewed determination, she abandons him to take another shot at living in the woods on her own.

Jack knows the headstrong girl won’t survive without his help, especially when she chooses a grizzly’s winter cave as her shelter, and he can’t stand by and idly watch her demise. When his irritation with her foolish pride boils over, he decides it is time to show her how thoroughly a man can dominate a woman silly enough to venture into the woods alone. Jack’s stern chastisement and bold mastery of her body leave Nettie begging for more, but is she truly ready to give up her freedom to be claimed by the mountain man?

Publisher’s Note: Claimed by the Mountain Man is an erotic romance novel that contains sexual scenes and spankings. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.

About Fetching Charlotte Rose

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?

Publisher’s Note: Fetching Charlotte Rose is an erotic romance novel that contains sexual scenes and spankings, including domestic discipline in a historical setting. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.

Excerpt from Daddy Dom WIP

Awkwardly, she splayed the top half of her body over the desk. Her breasts crushed against the cool wood.

“Widen your stance,” he ordered, his voice now clipped and clearly conveying his disciplinary intent.

With a small whimper, she moved her feet farther apart, which exposed her dripping pussy to the warm air and his view.

“How do you think Daddy should punish his naughty little girl for not completing her homework assignment?”

It seemed absurd to ask that question when it was clear exactly what he intended to do. “Two demerits?” she suggested.

She was grateful to hear him chuckle behind her. The moment was intense, but hearing his laugh caused her to relax just a fraction.

“Nice try, naughty girl. No, I think a spanking with this ruler will convey my expectations for obedience nicely. I’ll give you six swats, two for each question you left incomplete. Does that sound fair?”

“Yes, Daddy.”

Six didn’t sound so bad.

Three lines of fire branded her bottom in quick succession. It took her brain a moment to register the pain, but when it did, she shrieked and pushed back from the desk, clutching her poor burning bottom. Tears sprang to her eyes involuntarily. She couldn’t remember anything ever hurting that much. “Oh my god, oh my god,” she exclaimed, rubbing the scorched area frantically, trying to cool the burn. “That hurt!” she screeched at him.

“It was supposed to, young lady. Disobedient little girls do not get the privilege of having a bottom that’s not sore. Get back into position.”

She stared pleadingly into his eyes. “That was enough punishment. I promise to complete all homework assignments from now on.”

The expression on his face was implacable. “I’m sure you will, but Daddy is still going to finish your punishment.”

She whimpered, his words causing her pussy to leak and her bottom to clench. She absolutely didn’t want the last three swats. The whippy plastic ruler from hell had already caused an inferno on her poor bottom, but hearing his calm resolve did strange things to her nether regions.

Somehow, she convinced herself to assume the position in which her poor posterior was vulnerable to more punishment. He ran a warm hand over each cheek, and patted her bottom. “Legs apart.”

Old West Romance · Saturday Spankings

A sound switching #SatSpanks #NewRelease

It’s Saturday! We all know what that means around here. It’s time for some Saturday Spankings. I’m thrilled to share something from my new release, Catching Betsy, which is Book 2 in the Mail-Order Grooms series. This book is completely standalone; however, if you’ve read the first book, Handling Susannah, you will have a chance to revisit several of the characters.

19850928_264005927410540_949049823_o

In this excerpt, Betsy has put herself in danger by running away, and Roderick attempts to put a stop to that behavior by giving her a sound switching. She’s naked from the waist down, bent over a smooth rock with her skirts lying on her back, waiting to accept punishment.

He brought the switch across the center of both cheeks. A split-second later, she emitted a shriek and would have stood from her bent position if it weren’t for Roderick’s hand on her back pinning her in place. He watched as a single, thin welt appeared on her tender white cheeks.

He wielded the switch three more times in quick succession, leaving three neat stripes from the center of her bottom down to its undercurve.

She screamed so loudly that Roderick considered scolding her for that, but he decided not to. He had plenty of more important scolding to do. “You’ll never run away from me again, Betsy. If something I say isn’t pleasing to you, I expect you to stay and discuss it with me. Understand?”

“Yes!” she cried.

Catching Betsy (Mail-Order Grooms Book 2)

About Catching Betsy

Eighteen-year-old Betsy Blake yearns for love and romance, but the unattached men of Virginia City are all ill-mannered ranch hands without the gentlemanly qualities she desires. When her friend Susannah finds a husband by writing a mail-order groom advertisement in the paper, Betsy decides to pen her own ad specifying her wish for a well-dressed, mannerly husband from the east, and she excitedly awaits a response from the man of her dreams.

Roderick Mason’s reputation as an architect in NYC has earned him great success, but he hasn’t been as lucky in love. The women of his circle are perfectly lovely, observing every etiquette with practice and ease, but he longs for adventure and a woman who will challenge him. When he reads an ad in the paper requesting a gentleman groom, he decides it’s time to abandon life as he knows it and head to the wild west.

Roderick and Betsy are immediately smitten, but they soon discover that not everyone in Virginia City is pleased by their match, especially one man who wants Betsy as his own. As Betsy’s stalker becomes increasingly threatening, Roderick realizes he will go to great lengths to protect his sweet little country girl, including taking her over his knee for some painful discipline when she misbehaves or puts herself in danger. Will Betsy learn to face her problems and accept Roderick’s love and discipline, or will he never succeed at what he desires most—protecting and catching Betsy?

Warning: Catching Betsy is a historical western romance containing sexual scenes and domestic discipline, including punishment spanking. If these themes offend you, please don’t buy this book.
