Saturday Spankings



How can this possibly be the last Saturday in July?  I'm not ready, I'm not even ready for it to be Saturday.

 This week the I'm pulling the curtain back for another peek into the lives of Maria Elena Bartola and Juan Antonio Cabrillo.  TAMING MARIA is a tale of romance, adventure and personal tragedy.

 Maria has recovered from a life threatening injury resulting from an earthquake. Her memory  and her strength have not fully returned but she is trying to remember what life was like prior to her injury.  Everyday a little more of her personality reappears and she is tired of being an invalid and treated as such. Returning to normal means that her beloved Juan once agains bears the brunt of her caustic personality.


She laughed. "So do you still want to marry me?"

"Yes, I do. I think maybe I need my head examined but you are the only one I ever thought about having share my life. I have been in love with you since we were five years old."

She laughed again. "So where's the ring?"

"You are still a spoiled brat that needs a good spanking," he told her. "I don't have the ring on me but I will produce it in good time."

"Don't wait too long or I may change my mind," she told him.

"If you change your mind, I will just have to haul you over my shoulder and take you to the nearest Justice of the Peace and everything else be damned."

"Bet me."

Her laughter rang out as she walked away.

 TAMING MARIA  can be purchased as a stand alone book or as part of a boxed set which includes three of my other books.  They, as well as my other books are available in all digital formats at LSF Publications and Amazon.com.

Ready for a relaxing getaway.  Click on an any name below to be taken on a journey that is sure to be exciting.

  6. She could always give him a run for his money. There were times this girl shouldn't have been able to sit at all!

  8. I hope she doesn't really become caustic again. That doesn't sound good for him.

    1. Her words have 'burned' him before so unfortunately he is used to her ascerbic tongue.

    1. Spirited is a good word for Maria. Actually, most of my female characters are spirited. Methinks I write a lot of myself into them.

    1. That is a given, she always talks back. I think Juan would fall over dead if she didn't say a word.
