Guest Post - 5/31/16 - Jewel's Gems The Red Petticoat Saloon by Maggie Ryan #Historical #Spanking

#1 Bestselling Author Maggie Ryan brings you the first story in The Red Petticoat Saloon


            “You want to us to work in a gold mine?” Amelia asked.
            “No, of course not. Ophelia made it clear that wasn’t an option. It took me a while but an idea has been niggling at me ever since my father paid me my dowry. That simmering reached a boil during last night’s game and I’m ready to prepare the rest of the dish.”
            “You want us to become cooks?” Ophelia asked, and then laughed. “I’d be as useful in a kitchen as I would be in a mine.”
            “I want to open a place where women who chose to live a life offering their services to men will be comfortable and safe. I want a place where you aren’t working for pennies. A place where women receive the larger share of their profits so that they can save enough money to follow their own dreams.”
            “You are going to open a whorehouse?” Ophelia asked, her eyes wide.
            “In principle, but more. It will have entertainment and a card parlor. I want to offer good, hearty food as well. From what I’ve been reading, mining camps are pretty basic. The men work hard and I’m thinking, they are willing to part with a bit of gold to enjoy a home cooked meal. I see them flocking in to have pretty women dealing cards or serving drinks. I see them enjoying music and listening to a pretty girl sing. Perhaps we’ll have some sort of stage show. And, of course, I see the men willing to part with a bit more gold in order to spend an evening in the arms of one of my ladies. I’ll be responsible for providing housing and food as well as help with making investments for those who wish. I’ve done a lot of research and with your help, I think it can be a success.”


The Red Petticoat is not just another whorehouse. This is a place for every painted lady to get her happy ending. Madame Jewel and her 'gems' welcome hardworking men to come inside for a home-cooked meal or a few hands of cards. They are invited to listen to a pretty girl sing or watch a show. If a bit of intimate comfort is desired, they are welcome to go upstairs and into the arms of one of the beautiful women wearing the red petticoats. However, refer to its gems as whores and you'll find yourself tossed out into the street.

This story all begins when Lady Juliette Gardner discovers she has been set up and her reputation ruined. She decides to leave England for good and find her way to the goldfields of California with the hopes of creating her dream and possibly striking it rich.

To Gabriel Vasquez, the hard work and isolation of working his claim is the only way to achieve his dream. When he discovers his new partner is a woman, a very beautiful, very stubborn English woman, he has no problem – except for the fact that she refuses to think of her safety. If she is to be his partner, he will have no hesitation teaching her exactly what happens to naughty, cheeky English ladies.

Gabriel and Jewel will discover that life has room for more than one dream and as they settle themselves in Culpepper Cove. This mining town, nestled in the foothills of the Sierra Mountains, will never be the same once Juliette—Madame Jewel—opens The Red Petticoat.

Join award winning author Maggie Ryan as she begins the tale of The Red Petticoat and all of Madame Jewel's precious—but slightly flawed—gems.

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.

#6BestHop - 5/29/16 - Arrested by Love - Kyle takes Tiffany over his knee #DD #Spanking

He caught her speeding in a school zone and decided she needed to learn even civil disobedience could have very painful consequences.

Welcome to Sunday's Six of the Best.  For this hop we get to share six paragraphs from a published work or a WIP (work in progress). I've decided to continue on with the excerpts I shared for Sneak Peek Sunday. So, if you've been reading those, these snippets are direct continuations from my previous shares.

My submission for this week is from my 3rd book, Arrested by Love.  A handsome, but strict, police officer  decides a spoiled socialite needs a special lesson in obeying the law.

Tiffany Morgan has been in love with Kyle Sinclair since she was ten years old, when he'd turned her over his knee for attempting to swim in a raging white water river. Though she'd been furious with him at the time, Tiffany never told her family what Kyle did. Instead, she began trailing after him like an annoying younger sister as she tried to gain his attention.

Now, eleven years later, Kyle, a patrol officer, is finding it much more difficult to maintain his distance from the irresistible and vivacious redhead who continues to invent ingenious ways to attract his interest. Though he dismissed her initial attraction to him as infatuation, as she grew-up, his own feelings of desire and protectiveness deepened. So, despite his constant struggle to resist the spirited little minx's lures, Kyle finally has to admit that he is losing the battle--badly.

After Kyle makes it clear to Tiffany that speeding will earn her much more than a ticket from him, he gives into the inevitable and asks her out on a date.  He loves her, but isn't sure he's the right guy for her.  However, he no longer fights the attraction between them as he dates her exclusively, but Tiffany wants more, so she makes her stand, and Kyle makes it clear how her life will change if they get married.  And he persists by asking if she even thought she could live on a budget.  When she informs him she is not fiscally irresponsible, he tells her that if she can live for one month on the budget he sets for her, and show how she'd been able to save the rest of her salary, without going to her daddy for help, he will ask her to marry him.  But after two weeks in a row of going over, Tiffany seeks out her father in a tearful panic. He agrees to bail her out, but warns her that men can forgive a lot, but lying is something they find difficult to excuse.

So, by lying to Kyle, Tiffany finds herself swiftly spiraling downward into a morass of guilt that has her sobbing when he proposes. Confused, Kyle tries to get to the root of the problem as he comforts her, but when she admits she's been less than truthful with him, he demands her full confession. Kyle is more upset over the fact she lied to him than her failure to keep to a budget, so he gives her a choice. She either comes with him quietly and without , a fuss or they separate. When she presses for a time limit, he gives one he hopes she will reject. A year. Aghast, Tiffany insists he's being unfair and asks what she could in return if he was the one in the wrong. Surprised by her reaction, since she is the one who lied, Kyle tells her she could do what he was about to do. Walk away. However, when Tiffany begs him not to leave her, he extends his hand and walks her to his car. After driving her around for a half hour, Kyle takes Tiffany to a small secluded spot where he orders her out of the car and instructs her to select a branch from one of the bushes and strip off its leaves.

              Tiffany gazed at Kyle for a moment before she handed him the switch she'd made, then unfastened her skirt and lowered her underwear as he'd ordered.  He flicked the whip-like branch through the air a couple of times while she undressed.  Even though he'd decided against using it, he wasn't above scaring her a little before he discarded it.  Though she stood before him in her blouse and shoes with a straight spine, he noticed the slight trembling in her hands before his gaze lowered to the small patch of red hair that guarded her femininity. The surge of lust he experienced at that sight merely served to increase his anger.  He had hoped to finally make love to her this evening, but it looked like that would be off the agenda tonight as well.
            He placed the switch on the ground and crooked an index finger at her.  She winced, but walked over to stand beside him until her knees touched his with barely a moment's hesitation.  He patted his lap.  "You should know the drill by now, Tiffany.  Take your position, please."
            She let out a tiny gasp, and he knew she was afraid, but she also knew better than to try to dissuade him.  Looked like his threat of year's separation had had its intended effect.
            Laying herself gingerly over his lap, she gave one small sob once she was settled.  He placed his left hand on the middle of her back to steady her, then ran his right hand repeatedly over her buttocks to settle her to his touch.  She was tense, and he needed her to relax a little more so this punishment wouldn't end up being more painful than he intended.  "We didn't discuss how many swats you think you deserve for what you did, Miss Morgan.  So, what would you say is a fair number?"
            Her breath coming in small hitches now, she didn't respond right away.  He suspected she would go for the minimum of ten.  So, she surprised him when she said, "Twenty-five."
            "A very good number," he praised, "and I concur.  So, twenty-five it is then.  Have you anything you wish to say to me before we begin?"

Tiffany loves Kyle, and wants to prove to him she can will make a good wife, except she's never tried to keep to a budget before, and she quickly discovers it's much harder than she originally thought.  She knows going to her father is against the rules, but she can't face Kyle's disappointment for the second week in a row, so she breaks the rule, convincing herself she'll make it up in another way. However, when she falls short yet again, she begins to feel like a total failure, and actually bursts into tears when Kyle proposes. Despite being a bit relieved when he realizes she hasn't fallen for someone else, Kyle knows it's important for him to set the ground rules for their relationship up front.

#SatSpanks - 5/28/16 - A Dom's Dilemma - Time for a cuddle #BDSM #SpankingRomance

She needed his protection, except he insisted on her honest submission first.

Reading this material at Work could get you spanked.

Welcome to the Saturday Spankings blog hop.  My stories are all M/f with the dominant male determined to protect the woman he cares for and loves, or grows to love, by doing whatever it takes to ensure her safety and continued health.  This includes administering a spanking when she needs one.  

My submission for this week is from my first BDSM novel, A Dom's Dilemma, published by Blushing Books.  I'm picking up exactly where we left off the last time, back in February.

In this scene, Jim, a former Texan who works as a police detective by day and lives and plays as a Dom by night, is in the Velvet Chains BDSM medical station working with his new submissive, Kelly Franklin.  When Kelly balks, Jim suspects fear, rather than brattiness, is responsible for her reaction.  After giving her repeated opportunities to tell him what's bothering her, he decides to continue with his original agenda.  However, when Kelly discovers he intends to give her an enema, her fear increases exponentially, which validates his suspicions, but doesn't address Kelly's lack of trust or stubborn refusal to obey.  So, after reminding his reluctaont sub what BDSM is about, Jim gives her an ultimatum.  Say her safe word or submit to his will.  Kelly agrees to do what he wants, despite the persistent inner voice urging her to run away.  Though Jim is not out to humiliate or punish Kelly, her previous experience with medical BDSM was both embarrassing and painful. When she tells him this, he uses extra care and patience with her to coax her through the process, while remaining firm and resolute in his purpose. Her obedience is not optional, but afterward, he only wants to comfort and reassure her.

             "We'll cuddle here for a bit and you relax.  All right?"
            She nodded.  Though Kelly still wasn't happy about everything he'd made her do, she desperately needed her Dom's gentle words of comfort and reassurance, which he was clearly willing to give.  And the light, soothing kisses he provided almost compensated for the embarrassment she'd suffered.
            "How's your tummy?  Everythin' settlin' down as it should?" he asked, gently rubbing her belly.  She found the combination of his voice and fingers very relaxing.
            "Yes, Sir," she answered sleepily, tucking her head under his chin as she enjoyed being held in his arms..
            "Why don't you shut your eyes and rest for a bit, darlin'?" Master Jim suggested, shifting his magic fingers to her neck and shoulders.

Kelly has a past she's not willing to share with anyone, and enemas are a hard limit for her. Unfortunately, she adamantly refuses to say why, so Jim considers the procedure a necessity to ensure his new sub isn't concealing something that could make anal play dangerous for her. Though Jim's been trained and knows what to look for, withholding valuable information from a Dom is never a wise course of action for a sub to take. Another lesson Jim wants to press home.

Frisky Friday - 5/27/16 - Acting Lessons - Peter gives Kate a tour #KissMeKate #Spanking

Peter loved Kate with all his being, but that didn't mean he'd tolerate an ultimatum from her.

Welcome to another offering for Frisky Friday, where we hope you're getting as excited about the weekend as we are.

My submission for this week is from my 5th book, Acting Lessons.

 He was a strict and demanding college professor turned professional director who excelled at giving acting lessons.  She was his shy and uncertain former student who became a professional actress under his tutelage.  They fell in love, married, and won two Tony Awards before tragedy struck and a simple kiss ripped them apart.

After a six month separation, Peter Thorton decides to take matters into his own hands by making his famous wife, Kate, an offer she wouldn't refuse.  Plainly put, he wants her back and he intends to do whatever is necessary to achieve his goal, even if it means giving his stubborn, willful leading lady a daily reminder over his knee that she promised to obey him.

In this scene, which occurs near the end of Chapter Four, Peter Thorton has driven with Kate to a college camp ground in upper New York, where they will appear together in a summer stock production of "Kiss Me Kate." Kate has agreed to help Peter teach the drama students who have auditioned and been selected personally by him for the course he is teaching. Though Kate isn't sure she can trust Peter with her heart again, since she believes he's been unfaithful to her, she's never stopped loving him. And despite having Domestic Discipline originally play a part in their marriage, their last two years together had them living like polite strangers sharing the same house.

Now, however, they are temporarily reconciled and Kate has agreed to Peter's plan. She only hopes she isn't making a huge mistake when she discovers the primitive conditions of the cabin he assigned her. Realizing she'll need to stay with Peter if she's to survive the next six weeks, she badly wants to tell him off,  but wisely keeps her mouth shut when he offers to give her a tour of the camp.  

But when she rises to accompany him, Kate experiences a brief moment of dizziness. Concerned, Peter suggests she stay in and rest instead, offering to help her unpack and get settled while she relaxes in bed. Panicking, Kate promptly vetoes his suggestion, which merely arouses Peter's suspicions even more. In a quick turnaround, Kate apologizes and tells him she'd really like the tour he promised.

           With a sigh, Peter extended a hand to assist Kate to her feet, then drew her close.  "You don't have me fooled for a second, sprite.  I don't know what you're up to, but I'm warning you now if you've packed an item I wouldn't approve of, you're in big trouble.  I've given you several opportunities to come clean, and you've refused.  I'd call that your second strike, the first being you chose to hide something from me to begin with.  So, keep that in mind."
            "Yes, sir," she whispered against his chest.  She couldn't tell him.  Not yet.  She'd inserted one of the sponges before they left, so she was okay to go until tomorrow morning.  If she confessed, he'd insist upon removing it, and then he'd….  No.  Not yet.
            Peter kept a firm grip on her arm as he led her out of their cabin.  "Anything special you'd like to see first?"
            His cabin had a shower, tub and toilet.  Where would she go if she stayed in the lodgings he'd assigned her?  An unfortunate, but real possibility once he found out what she'd secreted in her luggage.  "Is there a communal ladies room?"
            His brow rose. "Yes, but you won't need it."
            "I know.  I'm just wondering what it looks like."
            "An odd choice, my love, however, we'll go there first if you want."
            Kate shuddered with visions of a lengthy wooden plank fitted with bottom-sized holes stretched over a pit in the ground.  She definitely couldn't do that.   Especially not with a sore butt.
            When Peter stopped in front of a long wood cabin, she suspected her worst fears were about to be realized.
            "Ladies' rooms are the one place I'm not allowed in.  Can you manage the stairs all right?"
            "I'm fine.  I climbed our long staircase at home, so this is nothing."

Finding herself caught between the proverbial rock and a hard place, Kate valiantly attempts to put on a good face. Given, her idea of roughing it is staying at a three star hotel, the sight of the camp where they'll be performing fills her with dread, and from what she's seen, her cabin should be condemned as inhabitable. Left with little choice, she agrees to share her estranged husband's cabin, but keeping him from discovering the extra items she's packed will undoubtedly prove a challenge.

#MFRWHooks - 5/25/16 - Past Interference - Elly's wedding night #CorbinsBend #Spanking

It's Book Hooks Wednesday!  Yay!  And I'm sharing an excerpt from my spanking novella in the Corbin's Bend series, Past Interferencethe sequel to A Simple Misunderstanding. Past Interference was originally part of the Corbin's Bend Valentine's Day collection "Love in the Rockies," but is now being sold separately.

What she needed was the opposite of what she wanted.

In this scene, which occurs near the beginning of Chapter Two, Eleanor Benson (Elly) is six days away from getting married again, and her doubts are eating her alive.  After suffering through a bout of stress-related migraines, she's finally gotten up enough courage to tell her husband-to-be that she's not sure she wants to get married.  Jerry knows Elly is nervous, but believed he'd managed to convince her he is nothing at all like her first husband, Arthur, who abused her.  Unfortunately, he's beginning to realize Elly's past may just ruin their future together, so he suggests they sit down and discuss why she's having second thoughts, and why he wants to marry her. Elly insists she's not afraid of Jerry, but when he realizes she hadn't been afraid of her first husband when they got married, either, he seeks to understand what happened between them.

“Did he hurt you?”
She nodded again. “I even asked him to stop, but he told me first times were always painful, and I needed to grow accustomed to his size.”
“You were a virgin.”
He didn’t make it a question, but she answered as if he’d asked one. “Yes. He wanted to wait until we were legally bound before he lay with me.”
“Did he do anything to prepare you?”
“You mean like foreplay?” she asked, remembering how Arthur ordered her to strip and lie down while he fastidiously removed his own clothes before he mounted her.
“Yes, or kiss you. Did he try at all to arouse you before penetration?”
Meeting Jerry’s gaze, she shook her head. “No. He knew he hurt me. He wasn’t cruel about it, just matter of fact.” And so uncaring about her emotions and feelings. “When I cried, he consoled me with a lecture on obedience and submission along with a list of his expectations.”
“Great. Just what every terrified young bride needs on her wedding night. A lesson on submissiveness."


Elly wants Jerry to tell her she's being foolish, but he's not about to do that.  He loves her, and he takes her concerns seriously.  So, he's determined they discuss her concerns and address them before things get out of hand. However, her first marriage was so disastrous, she's terrified to try again.

M/F Domestic Discipline in Colorado.


Valentine's Day in Corbin's Bend.  As Elly Benson readies herself for her second wedding, the doubts and misgivings of any new bride-to-be are exacerbated by the abuse she suffered during her first marriage.

Though she's lived with Jerry Douglas for four months now, and been subject to his discipline more than once, Elly's first husband had been kind and careful with her, too, until the day she vowed to love, honor and obey him.  The lessons she's learned from the past make her doubt she can ever find happiness in the future.

#WIPitUP - 5/25/16 - A Simple Misunderstanding - Elly defends her husband #CorbinsBend #Spanking

WIP: Work in progress.  WIP it up Wednesday is a hop where writers share portions of the project they're working on with readers.  I really like the idea because it allows me to share something that's still in the creative stage as well as work behind the scenes as a prompt to keep me writing.

Today, I'm sharing an excerpt from my first book in the Corbin's Bend series, A Simple Misunderstanding, where I tackle the problem of recognizing and addressing spousal abuse in a liberal spanking community. The community's residents right to privacy is paramount, and sometimes rough play can produce bruises that appear similar to abuse. So, as long as both partners deny any problems exist, the community can't take action. To do so would jeopardize the very foundation of what they've struggled so hard to build.

He came to her rescue when she needed him most, almost to lose her when she disobeyed him.

In this scene, which occurs in Chapter 3, Gerald Douglas (Jerry, who is the Corbin's Bend veterinarian) suspects Eleanor Benson (Elly) is being abused. So, he's asked her mentor, Kelli Stevens, to check on her. Both submissives and dominants are assigned mentors in Corbin's Bend to help them with any issues or questions they might have about the domestic discipline dynamic. Though Elly likes Kelli, she blames herself for any problems she and Arthur may be experiencing, so she's not been entirely honest with her mentor. Kelli suspects this and asks if Elly would prefer to have a younger mentor.

“No. I mean, why would you think so?”
Kelli nodded toward Elly’s bruised wrists. “Is Arthur abusing you?”
The blood drained from Elly’s face. “Of course not. We had a simple misunderstanding is all. I would never accuse him of abuse. Who said such a thing?”
“Is he overly strict with you?”
“No, not really. I don’t understand, Kelli, why—”
“Your wrists show signs of resistance. Were you trying to get free?”
Elly blinked back her tears. The handcuffs Arthur used weren’t padded, and she had struggled, but that was her fault, not his. He needed to be strict with her, so she’d learn how to be a wife he could be proud of. She promptly covered her wrists again with her sleeves. “He warned me not to struggle, but sometimes I can’t help myself. He didn’t mean for this to happen.”
“So, it was an accident?”
Nodding, Elly added, “I need to be more accepting of his discipline. He only wants what is best for me.”


Elly blames herself for her husband's firm discipline. She's convinced if she just tries a little harder things will be better between them.

M/F Domestic Discipline in Colorado.


Though Arthur and Eleanor Benson have been practicing domestic discipline for three months since their wedding, he insists moving to Corbin's Bend, where domestic discipline is the norm rather than the exception, will revitalize their marriage. Elly has doubts, but since Arthur is the undisputed head of their household, they move. However, once Arthur becomes immersed in a community where spanking is not only permitted, but encouraged, his personality undergoes a dramatic change. Accusing his submissive wife of being lazy, disorganized and disobedient, he employs creative methods of pain and humiliation to mold Elly from the imperfect woman he married into the perfect woman he desires. And Elly finds herself a virtual prisoner in her own home, accountable only to the man who rules her life with a cane.

In his years as a vet, Jerry Douglas has seen what abuse does to animals, and he recognizes those same signs in Elly Benson during her daily escape to the dog park with her tiny poodle. Jerry steadfastly supports the tenets of domestic discipline and enjoys the freedom Corbin's Bend offers its residents, but he remains fiercely protective of anyone in need of a champion. And when he witnesses evidence of harsh handling, his instinct is to rush in and rescue. Problem is Elly Benson is a married and consenting adult who insists all her bruises and welts are nothing more than a simple misunderstanding between her and her husband, until the day Arthur Benson takes his authority and discipline one-step too far, endangering Elly's life.
