Today we've got Maggie Ryan with an excerpt from her newest release "His Passionate Pioneer."
"I said, am I clear?"
This time the air resounded loudly with female voices, all assuring him that he was as clear as glass. The men kept straight faces as their women wiggled a bit. As the meeting broke up, with the reminder that the trumpet would wake them all at four a.m. and Morgan wanted the train moving out by six, Richard helped Anna to stand. She looked up at him, her eyes wide as saucers.
"Do you think he really means that he'd… he'd actually spank someone?" she asked.
"Oh yes, sweetheart. You heard him, and I don't think he is a man to break a promise or back off from responsibilities. If you don't believe me, try being really naughty—I'm sure he will be glad to demonstrate his sincerity on your sweet bottom."
Anna gasped, her face flaming, and shook her head. "You'd let him touch me?"
He looked down at her upturned face and grew serious. "Annabelle, you know what is expected from you. Everyone must do their own part to make sure that we all arrive safe and sound to our new homes. We've discussed this before. If you are naughty enough to warrant discipline, rest assured that I will take care of your fanny. If, however, you endanger yourself or this train, you'd better be prepared to bare your bottom and get it whipped by Mr. Morgan—to be made an example of. This is not a game played by children. Nor is it a leisurely Sunday carriage ride. Sweetheart, I will do everything in my power to keep anything like that from happening, but it is truly only you who can ensure you aren't brought before the wagon master." He pulled her more tightly to him but kept her face tilted to his with his hand cupping her chin. "If it helps, until we get to our own place, I suppose you can consider Mr. Morgan as your Pa, my Pa, and your husband all rolled into one."
Anna Martin has never lived her life in accordance with what others might think. Now, hiding behind the trunk of a tree, she's beginning to truly regret that fact. Listening to her reputation being ripped apart is making her suspect that her Ma's warnings are most likely coming true. After all, what man would ever consider courting-let alone wedding-a woman who never stops to consider what consequences her actions might have?
Richard Andrews has just returned to Crooked Creek after being gone for three years. The day he'd left, he'd heard Anna screeching that she hated being a girl. He'd also seen her spirit as her Pa had picked her up, turned her across his knee and given her a spanking. Richard has secretly loved Anna for years, and has returned to claim the feisty little copper-haired girl who has grown into a beautiful woman. He loves her spirit and her determination, and knows both will serve her well. Without her by his side, the dream he is working so hard to fulfill would be worthless. He wants the angel he knows she is-as well as the wanton lover he can detect in her flashing eyes. By the time they reached a marriage agreement, she'd know that she was loved and could always count on him to keep her in line-even if that means turning his passionate pioneer over his knee on a regular basis. Now all he has to do is convince her to trust him; convince her to become his wife.
Can Anna push aside her pride and actually turn to another for help? She remembers Mr. Andrews very well from when she was just fifteen years old. She'd been devastated when he'd simply ridden away that day. Why was he back, and what did he mean when he asked her to trust him? All she really knew was that, the moment he took her hand, her heart was lost...
About the Author:
Author for Blushing Books. I write both contemporary erotica and historical spanking romances. I enjoy writing about characters that enjoy the provocative D/S lifestyle of today’s times as well as taking a step back into the past to write stories that take place in the Victorian era with age-play as a theme.
I live in the great Lone Star state with my wonderful husband. I have always loved reading. Growing up in a family with four children, it was difficult finding a place to be alone. I was probably one of the squeakiest clean girls on the planet as I would spend hours in the tub so I could read without being bothered. It wasn’t long before I began to make up my own endings to the books I was reading. From there, it just seemed natural to begin writing my own stories.
I never try to restrict myself to any one genre because there are just too many delicious possibilities out there and inside my head. I admit to being somewhat of a romantic though as my stories always must have a great deal of love, passion, corporal discipline and, of course, great, mind-blowing sex. I want my readers to be able to see, hear, feel and know the characters that I’m creating as well as I do when I bring them to life and transfer their stories to paper. I want my women to be strong of character but also strong enough to know that submission given in love and trust to your partner does not make you weaker, it makes you far stronger. I want my men to be sexy, strong, demanding alpha males who know how to take what they want while acknowledging it is a gift they have been blessed with by the women that have chosen to submit to them. I want there to be no doubt that they truly would die for the other no matter how others might view their relationship.
