Saturday Spanking - New Year's Edition

The fireworks are not just for the new year but finally, A Cowboy's Love has been released.  I think Santa might have had something to do with it because I received notice on Christmas Eve.

Now that Christmas is over and the New Year starts tomorrow, I want to begin the year off right by thanking everyone who comes by to read and comment. It tickles me when I read the comments and see the number of visits rise.

Now, I have to get back to work.  A Cowboy's Love is set in Arizona in the late 1800's. My husband and I were on a trip during the summer and driving through to Sedona, I was inspired by the terrain and the unusual names of some of the towns.  After some research, because I am a history nut, I found myself thinking about what it would have been like to live there back then and before I knew it, I was writing this story. The background cover is actually a photo I took while on the trip.

Annabelle Steele, highborn into Philadelphia Society, becomes engaged to another member of Philadelphia’s elite aristocracy.  Both sets of parents are thrilled with the influential match until Jameson Henry Bartlett’s real character is revealed.

Rather than be subjected to the man’s further depravity, Annabelle takes matters into her own hands and plans her getaway.  She accepts a teaching position in San Francisco and clandestinely makes her escape as Grace Callahan.
Fate intervenes, and her travel plans are thwarted when her stagecoach overturns and she is left stranded in the Arizona Territory.  Marsh Tucker discovers the accident and takes Ms. Callahan and the other survivors to the Winding Creek Ranch.
At first, Marsh Tucker thinks Ms. Callahan is nothing but a young spoiled society brat and treats her with disdain. Grace Callahan believes Marsh Tucker is nothing but a brute and bully after he takes her over his knee and gives her the spanking he thinks she so richly deserves.  They’re both wrong.

This snippet is from the very beginning of the story. Marsh Tucker comes across an overturned stagecoach and finds Grace Callahan.

Marsh felt the woman's wrist for a pulse and was suddenly taken back when she let out a terrifying scream.
"Calm down Miss, I'm here to help. Are you hurt?"

He looked into eyes filled with fright and when she looked at him it was as if he were the devil himself. She then looked down at herself and seemed surprised she was in one piece. She shook her head.

He spotted a cloud of dust indicating that rider were heading his way...but as they came closer, he realized they were friends.

The girl screamed when she saw the Indians. Telling her not to worry didn't help - she continued yelling hysterically. Finally, he pulled her down into his arms, cradling her trembling body. He stroked her back over and over as he continued saying the same words.
