Welcome to Saturday Spankings. My teaser today is from my cowboy romance The Rancher's Woman. Its now#1 in Erotic Westerns on Amazon UK and held the same#1 spot on Amazon US for 10 days. Its in the top twenty in BDSM in the US and went as high as #5. Set in the small Wyoming town of Hope Junction, The Rancher's Woman is Tessa and Chance's love story. Tessa has just moved to town to start a new business and Chance is the local rancher who falls for her. My extract follows on from last week. It joins Tessa and Chance the morning after Chance punished Tessa with a hard spanking and a thorough belting. It is the first morning they have woken up together and Tessa is horrified when Chance teases her about her snoring. As the last three sentences are short, I've counted them as one.
He grinned at her, sitting up on the bed with the sheet covering his lower half, looking all gorgeous with his tanned, naked torso glistening in the sunlight, “’Fraid so, babe, real cute little snorts, grunts, and whistles. It was downright lyrical.”
Glaring at him, she stomped back into the bathroom, striving to be furious with him - unsuccessfully - it was hard to be indignant while naked and sporting the marks of his discipline on her bare ass. She grinned at herself in the mirror, a warm, comforting feeling flooding her at their domestic interchange. Was this what it would be like to share a life with him?
Turning around to inspect her butt in the mirror, she grimaced at the two overlapping, angry red welts. Looking over her shoulder, she traced them gingerly with her fingers, marveling at how they made her feel. Claimed. Marked by him. Truly taken in hand.
Everyone in town knows that sparks of attraction have been flying between Tessa Anderson and Chance Williams almost from the moment her nursery business brought her to beautiful Hope Junction, Wyoming, but it takes an actual fire to really get things moving. When a blaze breaks out in Tessa’s kitchen, it is Chance—a volunteer firefighter—who rushes to the scene.
He asks her out the very next day, but she is shocked by his threat to spank her if it turns out the fire was caused by her carelessness. Nonetheless, Tessa can’t help pushing Chance to see if he would truly spank her, and before she knows it the firm-handed rancher takes her over his knee for a lesson she won’t soon forget. Yet despite his bossy ways, Tessa soon begins to realize that Chance might well be the man she’s been waiting for her whole life, and though it is hard for her to admit, the promise of a sore bottom when she misbehaves arouses her deeply.
But someone apparently has a problem with Tessa’s presence in Hope Junction, and the kitchen fire is followed up by one mysterious incident after another. Tessa keeps these occurrences secret from Chance, believing she can take care of herself. When the truth eventually comes to light, Tessa soon learns that Chance takes her safety very seriously and a bare-bottom spanking is only the beginning of the thorough, humiliating punishment she faces for her subterfuge. Will Chance’s decision to take her in hand so forcefully tear them apart, or will Tessa see his discipline as proof of the love they will share for the rest of their lives?
