WELCOME EVERYONE. I haven't been here in a while but today I have a brand new book to tell you about. It's a period western filled with adventure, heartache, romance, love, sexy cowboys and lots of spanking.
Lily Rose Cochrane grew up the spoiled daughter of a prosperous midwestern couple. That is, until she was fifteen. Then her life changed dramatically. Her mother passed and her father turned to the bottle leaving her to pick up the pieces.
Feeling the weight of too many burdens placed on her young shoulders, she is looking for a way out. She thinks she may have found it in Johnny Billings. He’s a scout for a wagon train and is smitten with her. Unfortunately, he's not ready to make a commitment but Lily finds a way around his reticence.
What follows is a story of young love, loss and finding love again.
EXCERPT: In this scene Johnny Billings is asking Miss Lily Rose Cochrane to accompany him to dinner. Her father objects but Lily Rose argues that he is hardly in a position to tell her what she can and cannot do. She plans on going to dinner with Johnny regardless of her father's objection. Johnny refuses to go without the father's permission and asks him to join them. Lily Rose strenuously objects and gives her father a dressing down that makes Johnny cringe.
“You owe your father an apology.”
“Not a chance in hell. Shall we go?”
“To coin your phrase, not a chance in hell. You don’t need dinner, you need a soaped mouth and a trip to the woodshed. If I were your father or your husband, that’s what you would be getting’.”
“Well, it’s a good thing you’re neither.” She raised her hand to slap his face. He grabbed her wrist.
“I would think twice about that Ms. Cochrane or you just might get what you so richly deserve.
Does Lily Rose Cochrane's hand find its mark? Does Johnny follow through with his threat? The answers are only a click away.
