The Cowboy Has Her Back by Leigh Smith (Sunnygirl!)


I am thrilled to feature Leigh Smith's newest cowboy spanking romance The Cowboy Has Her Back today!


After her Navy SEAL husband is killed by a drunk driver, widowed Mikela ‘Mickey’ Chandler comes to stay with her brother-in-law and sister, Becky. While out riding, her horse takes off at breakneck speed and Mickey loses her grip on one of the reins.

Fortunately, for her, local rancher Hank Caldwell is on hand to save the day...and the two embark on a passionate and stormy relationship. It’s not long before Mickey falls head over heels in love with the tall, handsome rancher, but having been hurt in a previous relationship, Hank is guarded and cautious where his feelings are concerned. There are other problems too, in that Hank is used to being in control while Mickey is an independent woman in charge of her life. Their relationship teeters on the edge as the two fight for control.

Are they too stubborn and set in their ways to make things work, or will love find a way?

EXCERPT
Mickey told Hank to choose the spot. He picked Rowdy’s Roadhouse, a restaurant on the outskirts of Williston and made famous by regular appearances of Rowdy’s Rangers, a Texas band now famous but discovered at the restaurant by an affluent patron. Since then, whenever the band was on tour and in the approximate area, they made it a point to drop in and play a set or two. Rowdy’s was a popular place and there was quite a line waiting for a table when they arrived. Luckily for them, many of the waiting patrons were large parties and they moved up the list quickly since there was just the two of them. Mickey had pumped her sister for any information on Hank, but she didn’t learn much. Becky said he had only returned to Williston and let it go at that. Apparently, the Circle C was one of the biggest and most successful ranches in the area. In addition to cattle and horses, their holdings included vineyards and almond orchards. Hank had a couple of brothers and a sister and both brothers worked on the ranch. His sister married an attorney and moved to Washington DC. His parents, were still involved in the running of the ranch but based on the gossip around town were gradually turning it over to their sons, Hank, Dave and Randy.

Hank and Mickey weren’t sitting at the table long before people started stopping by. All of them welcomed him home; and expressed their hope he stayed this time. If people ever stopped coming by the table, she planned on finding out more about Hank Caldwell.

With his tousled sandy blonde hair, bronzed skin and bright blue eyes, fine lines crinkling the edges of his eyes and mouth, he was good looking enough to be an actor or model. He was a man comfortable in his own skin and used to being in command, and it showed. Dressed in dark blue jeans, sharply creased but soft looking and weathered, a checked long sleeved shirt and well-worn boots that were clean and polished, he was one handsome cowboy and she was sure he set many a heart aflutter, hers among them. The steady stream of greeters slowed down and she was just about to ask him about himself when another couple plopped themselves down in the seat on the other side of their booth.

“What are you doing here, this is most unusual for you?” the man said to Hank. Mickey took a good look at Dave and could see a resemblance but Hank was the winner. “Mickey is taking me to dinner for saving her ass this afternoon.”

“Mickey, meet my brother Dave and this is his, ‘what are you Dani, his lover, friend, mistress, wife; what other labels might there be?’”

“No need for such sarcasm or meanness, Hank” she purred at him.

“I see not much has changed,” Dave said to Hank. Mickey was surprised that Dave took Hank’s disparaging remarks about Dani so well, she half expected fisticuffs to break out at any moment.

“Oh, a lot has changed. She’s with you now and I only wish you the best of luck and hope to hell you never have to leave town, because we have one more brother.”

 “That’s enough, Hank,” Dave told him.

“You came and sat down here, so if you don’t want to hear anymore, then I suggest you find yourself another table.”

Dave gave Dani a slight push out of the booth. As they walked away, Mickey spoke to Hank. “It’s none of my business, but I have to ask. I can guess, but what the hell was that all about?”

‘You’re right Mickey, I don’t mean to be rude, but I don’t want to ruin what’s left of the evening by hashing through things better left untouched. Maybe if we ever get to know each other better, I’ll explain."

“Okay, but before they popped in, I wanted to ask what brought you back to Williston and what took you away in the first place. If the two things are tied together, I’ll understand if you don’t want to go there.”

“They are and they aren’t. I left because when I was in college I was recruited by Homeland Security. My college major was criminal justice and after September 11th I wanted to protect my country. When HS came on campus, they offered me a chance to use my education and satisfy my passion; I took them up on their offer. So, to answer your question, I worked for Homeland Security. I’m not active right now.”

“So are you back in Williston to stay?”

“I’m in Williston. Life changes on a dime and in HS I learned to live one day at a time, that’s what I’m doing. So enough about me, let’s talk about you.”

“Shall I start at birth and just go forward or is there a particular place you want me to start?”

“A smart mouth, I should have guessed from earlier today. Start anywhere you like?”

“I told you earlier my sister Becky had twins and I came to help. Once the twins were on a regular schedule, I was beginning to feel underfoot but the holidays were on the horizon, and she asked me to stay through them at least. It didn’t take much convincing, spending the holidays with loved ones or alone. I find I’m ready for a change and want to be closer to family. Becky said the district is looking for teachers so I’ve decided to apply for a position. Back in San Diego, there are too many memories around every corner. I’m a widow. My husband was a Navy Seal that, believe it or not, was not killed in the line of duty but by a drunk driver. Barry returned from a mission and was on his way home when it happened. They haven’t found the driver, and I doubt they ever will. It occurred about 2:30 am, and no one has come forward with any information. It’s been two years, so I don’t hold out any hope. It doesn't matter though, it will not bring Barry back. Anyway, it’s time for a change. Becky is my only sibling so living close to her and my nieces makes this the logical place to settle.”

“So if you get the job, you’ll settle here in Williston, or at least in the area?”

“Teaching job or not, I’ll settle here. With Barry’s pension, I don’t have any financial worries. I still have loose ends in Southern California but nothing that will keep me there for long.”

“Good to know.”

Release Day! Conquered Brides Box Set: Medieval Spanking Romance

Five book Box Set for only $9.95 (50% off individually priced books!)
Today is release day for Conquered Brides, a five-book box set featuring medieval spanking romances by Ashe Barker, Sue Lyndon, Korey Mae Johnson and Dinah McLeod. The box set follows the sacking of a castle, and the five brides who are carried off by the enemy.  My book is called The Knight's Seduction.  This is a scene from their first night together...


Sir Barrett unwound the ribbon binding her wrists, then loosened the tie that held her bodice. She caught the edges of it before it fell open and backed away.
He allowed her retreat, stripping off his tunic and then undershirt.
“Sir Barrett...my lord husband?”
He smiled indulgently at her. “Yes, love?”
“I-I cannot lay with you.”
His brows drew together. “You can and you must, else the marriage will not be complete.”
Her mind searched about for something to say. “I mean, I cannot tonight,” she ad libbed.
“Why not?”
“Uh, well, you see...I have my monthly courses. So you’ll have to wait.”
“I will punish you for that lie,” he said without any trace of anger. He stepped toward her. “I think you must want to be spanked again. Did you enjoy it, little one?”
Again the strange slithering sensation in her belly. She backed up until she hit the wall. “No! Of course I didn’t. Why do you think it’s a lie?” she asked, desperately continuing the pretense, though it would be easy enough for him to disprove.
“I have already had your bottom bare once today. Have you forgotten? I suppose I did not make enough of an impression.” He sauntered closer. “What is it, Daisy?” he asked, his voice gentle. “Are you afraid I’m too big? That I will hurt you?”
She seized on his suggested reason. “Yes, sir,” she said, nodding vigorously. “You are far too large.” She blushed furiously when she realized he may have meant his manhood, not his entire stature.
He smiled, reaching her and wrapping his warm palms around her waist. “I promise I will make it as pleasant as possible, my sweet wife. There may be a little pain, but only the first time. And I assure you it ends with a great deal of pleasure.”
She shook her head, blinking back tears. “Please...I don’t want to. Please don’t make me.”
He frowned, looking genuinely concerned. Cupping her chin, he lifted it. “You are truly terrified, aren’t you?”
$9.95 on Amazaon
The tears began to spill. She dropped her eyes and nodded.
“Of me or of the marriage act?”
“Not of you,” she said, her voice wavering.
“Look at me,” he murmured.
With great effort, she lifted her gaze.
“Did something happen to you to make you so afraid?”


The Knight's Seduction

Avowed to never give herself to a man, Lady Daisy stands ready to fight to the death when her castle's defenses crumble. The imposing knight Sir Barrett has other ideas, however, and to her dismay, Daisy soon finds herself not only disarmed, but soundly spanked as well. Sir Barrett takes her as his captive bride, but when she shows real terror at the prospect of consummating their marriage, he offers her a bargain. She will offer her body to him and accept the pleasurable torments he inflicts, but he will not claim her fully until she aches for it so badly she begs him. Certain she will do no such thing, Daisy agrees, but can she resist the knight's seduction?

Cheap #Spanks! On Sale this Month Only - Pleasing The Colonel (Regency Spanking Romance)

Trapped in a crevice after a carriage accident, Amanda Downy is not sure whether she'll ever see the light of day again. With her tongue loosened by a fellow passenger's flask of brandy, she reveals several well-guarded secrets about her life as a governess at Colonel Watson's residence, including the fact that she falsified her references to gain her employment. 

The next morning Amanda is horrified when she finds that the passenger who saved her life after the carriage crash is sitting at the breakfast table at Colonel Watson’s estate, and it appears that he is the long-absent Colonel himself! Amanda is certain that she will be immediately dismissed, but the Colonel has a different sort of discipline in mind for her… 

The Colonel soon learns that in spite of the deceitful manner with which she obtained the position, Miss Downy is an excellent governess and is much loved by his children. After a firm dose of the leather strap on her bare bottom, he lets her know that she may keep her position as long as she is truthful with him in the future. As time passes, though, the Colonel finds himself thinking of Amanda as he has not thought about any woman since his beloved wife passed away. Though he has no intention of ever marrying again, he cannot deny his growing need for her. 

Amanda has a longstanding dislike for stiff military men, yet she warms to the Colonel, discovering that underneath his gruff exterior he is kind and generous. As she wonders if the attraction is mutual, another suitor makes his interest known. Should she accept his offer? Or should she wait to see if the Colonel will ever make his move? 

This book contains sexual scenes and spankings, including domestic discipline in a historical setting. If such material offends you, please do not buy this book!

The Conquered Brides Medieval Box Set - #SatSpanks


RELEASE DATE:  THIS TUESDAY, MARCH 2ND

I'm so thrilled to reveal the cover for our hot new medieval box set: Conquered Brides. Featuring books by me, Ashe Barker, Sue Lyndon, Korey Mae Johnson and Dinah McLeod. If you love the abduction/seduction scenario, medieval knights and strong ladies who fight back, you will love this set.

My Sat Spanks snippet is from my book The Knight's Seduction. Daisy, the heroine, is terrified of having sex with Sir Barrett, the knight who carried her off. She had a bad experience as a child, and she'd sworn men off entirely before Barrett rode off with her. Here's a scene where they discuss it:

*******

“Sex is like a language. In its highest form, we use words to praise God. In its lowest, we hurl them to insult or harm those around us. So it is with coupling. It can be used in love, in worship, for mutual pleasure. And also for violence.”
She eyed him warily. His words made sense, but she didn’t want to let go of her armor and believe.
“I only want to teach you pleasure, Daisy,” he said. “Can you believe that?”
She sucked her cheek between her teeth and looked away.
When her eyes returned, Barrett was inches from her face. She jerked as his mouth covered hers, pushing her hands against his chest in a moment of panic. He lightened the kiss, releasing her mouth and claiming it again, stroking and caressing her lips until she began to move her lips against his.

The Perfect Housewife by Etta Stark (Love in the Rockies Corbin's Bend Box Set)


It's no secret I love Etta Stark's writing so I'm pleased to feature her new Corbin's Bend book, The Perfect Housewife, which is part of the Love in the Rockies box set.

Kirsty Beale may be less wild and destructive than she used to be but she's a still a long way off being the perfect housewife.
Since moving in with her boyfriend Logan - and spending time with Logan's very traditional family - Kirsty has begun to worry that she isn't the traditional homemaker that Logan would like her to be. Will Valentines Day be the perfect opportunity to let Logan enjoy the pleasures of having a perfect old-fashioned wife - if only for one night?


Excerpt
“How have we managed to create so much mess in this house already?” asked Logan Barrett, his arms full of random objects he had gathered from the living room. “We only moved in together a month ago.”

His girlfriend, Kirsty, gave a shrug. “A month is plenty of time to make a mess, if you think about it,” she said. “I reckon if a person put their mind to it, they could create quite bit of mess in an afternoon. Anyway, with two of us living here, there’s bound to be more stuff laying about then when we had our own separate places.”

“How do you figure that?” asked Logan. “This place is much bigger than either of our previous houses. There’s loads of room to store everything. There shouldn’t be any mess at all.”

“It’s not really mess,” Kirsty responded. “It’s just a bit of clutter.” “It’s mess,” said Logan firmly. “And you know, I might have said that ‘we’ created it, but I am pretty certain most of this junk is yours.”
He dumped the armful of stuff he had been carrying onto their bed. Kirsty had to admit that at first glance, it did look like mostly her belongings. There were all the pairs of shoes that she tended to leave on the living room floor when she kicked them off at the end of an evening, a couple of sweaters, letters addressed to her, some of her books and a weighted skipping rope she had bought with the intention of getting fit and then only used once.

Even in the face of the evidence that Logan had just presented to her, Kirsty wasn’t going to take all the blame. “I don’t make all of the mess in this house,” she said, pouting. “You’re just as untidy as me in your own way.”

Logan quirked an eyebrow at her and folded his arms. A shudder ran through Kirsty as he took on a stern expression. With his well-muscled physique and his handsome slightly lop-sided features, Kirsty didn’t think she would ever get tired of looking at him. He was absolutely gorgeous. Even when he looked like he was just about to give Kirsty a telling off. Oh who am I kidding, thought Kirsty to herself, he’s especially gorgeous when he looks like he’s about to tell me off.

“How am I just as untidy as you are?” asked Logan. “This is all your stuff.”

“That’s because you just cram everything into drawers and cupboards. It’s not proper tidying. It’s just ‘out of sight, out of mind’.” Kirsty nipped over to Logan’s side of the bed and pulled open the top drawer in his bedside cabinet. “See what I mean,” she said, pointing to its contents. “This drawer here is apparently your socks, newspapers, and bicycle pump drawer. Very organized.” She opened the second drawer. “And here apparently, we have your t-shirts, CDs and phone charger drawer. Clearly you have a system.”

Logan looked at her. His expression was still firm but there was a definite smile playing around his mouth. “Why don’t you keep going, Kirsty?” he said. “I know for a fact that the third drawer has got my paddle in it. Maybe that’s what we need right now.”

Best. Narration. Ever. And She's a Spanko like us!

I am soooo excited about my latest narrator, Faith Alowyn Alden.  She send me a message (audio, so I could hear her lovely voice) telling me that she was auditioning for Humbled because she'd read it, loved it and is a fan of spanking romance.

Well, an author can't ask for better than that, can she?  In this case it only got better. Turns out she's an incredible actress, able to handle all the various French and English accents in Humbled with aplomb.  I was literally swooning at her audition.  You can hear the sample here!

There's even a bonus "bloopers" section at the end that will have you giggling along with the narrator!!

  The book is free with your Audible Trial or available on Amazon, Audible or iTunes

Humbled
Sentenced to die at age 11 for stealing a pig, Jean-Claude receives an unexpected reprieve when a young aristocrat girl takes the blame instead. When the mobs of the French Revolution fall upon her ch√Ęteau years later, Jean-Claude knows he must save her and repay his debt, but as they begin their long flight to safety he makes it clear he is not her servant and he will deal firmly with any disobedience. Though he initially intends to send her off by ship, the beautiful, feisty Corinne inspires a fierce protectiveness in Jean-Claude that makes it hard to say goodbye.
Corinne is alternately infuriated and attracted to the handsome peasant who has no qualms about turning her over his knee and spanking her bare bottom when she steps out of line. When he ends up joining her on a ship to New Orleans, their futures become inextricably intertwined, but can a common-born blacksmith and the daughter of a lord find enough common ground to make a permanent match?
Publisher's Note: Humbled is an erotic romance novel that includes spankings, anal play, graphic sexual scenes, and more. If such material offends you, please don't buy this book.
