Blurb So Not a White Knight

It’s past time for Essie to break out of the box, to rebel, to live the life she wants and not what everyone else wants for her. Working as a chemical engineer for her family’s oil company isn’t what anyone would call exciting. It pays the bills. But she wants more, in every part of her life. She’s dated men mainly interested in her family. Decent men. Boring men. Except for one man several years back, until he became more infatuated with his business than with her. She left him, and he barely seemed to notice. She’s come to the conclusion she needs a makeover, something to make a man take enough notice of her that all else will pale in comparison. No more blending in, being the wallflower of the world. She’s certain an inner wild woman lies buried within her, and she’s ready to set it free. Next step, have at least one “hot” night with a “sexy beast.”

Bring him on, Madame Evangeline.

It took a while for the truth to slap him in the face, but Trevon sees now that he was an idiot. He got lost in building his Houston architectural firm into one of the most respected firms in the country. He’s played all of the social games, belonged to the right clubs, knows the important people, lived and breathed reaching his goal. But he failed to see the true worth of the woman he allowed to walk away. Essie deserved more than what he gave her. In a unique twist of fate with a matchmaking service, he gets a second chance to prove his worth to her. He damn sure better not screw this up.

The anthology is currently available as an ebook at Amazon.

BLURBS:

STARLA KAYE: To Love, Honor, Obey… and Trust
Take off her panties. Why? “… Because knowing you are sitting at your desk with a bare bottom, which will be spanked later, will make you less pissy…” Did Abby believe he would carry out his threat? More so, could she trust him to give her exactly what she needed?

S.K. FERO: Whatever It Takes
Relationships are hard enough, but when an ultimatum is given, and a choice has to be made, things become hot. Will one dominant cowboy give his submission to the other to keep their romance alive? Sometimes sacrifice brings some unknown rewards.

MANDIE MILLS: The Initiation:
After accepting a mysterious invitation to a private kink club, Felicity’s domination and submission fantasies come to life in an adventurous evening of blindfolds, bondage and double penetration that includes a handsome stranger.

R.M. OLIVIA: An Anniversary Gift for Emily
Discouraged by the lack of spark in their marriage, Emily’s husband breaks into her diary to discover her hidden secret- a ménage! Would she be open to an interracial adventure with their sexy Latino neighbor? There is only one way to find out.

LESLIE MCKELVEY: The First Time… Again
Can Lila summon up the nerve to tell her easy-going and laid back boyfriend what is really on her mind? How would he receive her request to take charge and command control, tie her up and even spank her! She longed to submit but was he prepared to dominate? Once asked, there would be no going back.

ZORA NYXX: Kneel
Her marriage had fallen to the mundane, everyday life that left Lydia feeling empty and joyless. She needed a second chance to live again, clear on the other side of the country where she met Thorton- a powerful and dominating man who was not only able to awaken her sexuality but also claim her heart. That is- if she could bring herself to kneel before him.

BREANNA HAYSE: A Little Submission
Sharli’s no angel and her childish defiance has landed her in the police station. No amount of weaseling is going to stop her alpha male boyfriend from showing his love for his Little girl by putting her straight over his knee for a shocking bare-bottom spanking. Comforted in his strong, loving arms, Sharli realizes that she needs more than just a dom- she also needs a Daddy.

KELLY DAWSON: Subdued By The Lifeguard
Zane’s a surf lifeguard, trained and paid to rescue and protect, his watchful eye never missing a beat when it came to safety. His dominance flowed like the waves over the sand, drawing Lisa into its wake and daring her to challenge him. Would she risk drowning just for the chance that he could make her obey? Assuming, of course, that he would save her!

A.T. BRENNAN: A Valentine’s Surprise:
Lena and Kai decide to fulfill each other’s deepest fantasies for Valentine’s. She’ll wear a sexy PVC dress for him, and he brings his friend Taylor along so she can experience a threesome with two men. Two dominant alpha males and one sensual vixen make for a threesome to remember!

AMANDA RAVENSCROFT: Her New Life
Christie has been successful at work, but something was missing from her life- the need to submit to a truly dominant man. Could this awakened need be fulfilled in the hands of Gerard, who holds to the old-fashioned beliefs of consent, respect, and compliance?

SELKIE McKATRICK: Eternal Submission
Do you believe in reincarnation and the paranormal?  When Dorrie submits her heart and soul to Eli, she never imagines being bound to him in another life as both his soul mate and submissive. If love truly is forever, then beware before you submit to its power in this thrilling romance.

BLURB

Kendra spends her days and nights running a business, sculpting, and leading a Tahitian dance group in Kauai. She can’t squeeze anything else into her life, but she dreams of cowboys. Sexy, hot cowboys in tight jeans, low-tipped Stetsons, and dusty boots. Men who know all about how to please a woman. She enjoys her fantasies, but can’t imagine ever settling down. But one night with one would be so nice. Surely that would get her dreams of a white knight cowboy sweeping her off her feet out of her system.

Because of an accident that Shane believes left him “less of a man,” he doesn’t see a wife and children in his future. Carson, his ranching partner—and sometimes lover—thinks Shane is wrong. Carson refuses to let Shane settle for a life of rodeo bunnies who only want a romp in bed with a bull rider. Shane deserves more than that. He manages to sign Shane up with a matchmaking service to, hopefully, meet another kind of woman, maybe someone who will appreciate Shane for the man he is. Except Madame Evangeline expects both of the cowboys to go on this special one night date. It doesn’t take long for either cowboy to realize that one night with the purple-haired, hip-shaking beauty in Kauai might not be enough….

 

EXCERPT – PG13 – Cowboy Dreamin’

“I can’t do this!” Kendra moaned and glared at Alexis in the dressing room mirror. She had one boob in a coconut cup and one boob that refused to go in the other bra cup. “I can’t!”

Alexis walked over and calmly pushed Kendra’s hands out of the way. She lifted the problem coconut shell cup and gently guided the uncooperative breast into place. “Situation resolved.”

Tears threatened and Kendra’s stomach churned. “That was only part of what’s wrong.”

She’d been stressed ever since learning about this arranged meeting between her and the two cowboys from Kansas. She’d been dreaming about a fantasy, sexy cowboy for so long. But two at the same time? What if neither of them met her visualization? Would she be soured on all cowboys? Would her fantasies be ruined forever? She didn’t have time in her harried life for more than the occasional fantasy. She needed it.

She exhaled deeply, wincing at the slight movement of the rough shells over her tender breasts. She still hadn’t gotten around to replacing the felt lining and she would pay for that negligence today. “My fantasies are all I have. If this goes wrong…. If they are—”

“This could be far better than those dreams of yours,” Alexis chastised with a frown. “It’s two cowboys.”

Kendra paced away and fluffed out her skirt. “Could be being keywords.”

A tear trickled down her cheek and she dashed it ruthlessly away. Then her shoulders slumped and she mumbled miserably, “I should never have agreed to any of this.” She glowered at Alexis. “You pushed me into it, all of it. Agreeing to spend some kind of night with two cowboys is bad enough. But you accepted this dance show without discussing it with me. And they are supposed to meet me here.”

She paced across the small room again, fluffing the sides of her grass skirt again. “First impressions are a big deal, you know. And here I’ll be shimmying my ass around wearing a pink skirt made of fake grass and bouncing my boobs in a really dumb coconut shell bra.”

To her disgust, Alexis laughed. “They’ll think themselves the luckiest cowboys in the world.”

Left at the altar with bald patches on her head and her self-confidence stripped away, Tamara Johnson must pick up the pieces of her life and face her Alopecia Areata, the autoimmune disease causing her hair to fall out. She is convinced no man will date a bald woman and arranges a one-night stand through Madame Evangeline’s popular service, 1Night Stand. With her new wig held firmly in place, Tamara arrives at the Castillo Hotel in Las Vegas for a night of passion and pleasure. Anything more than one night would mean exposing her bald head, and she will never do that to any man again.

Running into the Castillo Hotel, away from the paparazzi constantly at his heels, Josh Summers wants to spend his next few days locked away from the flashing lights and screaming fans. When he finds an incredibly sexy woman lying on his hotel room bed in nothing but lingerie, he thinks management has made a mistake. Leaving her behind, he heads for the lobby to get the situation rectified. But an unexpected text from Madame Evangeline sends him back to his room. Though unsure whether the woman on the bed is really his perfect match or just another fan believing him to be like his character on television, he knows he must find out, even if it means he must risk telling her his own secrets. If Tamara can handle his imperfections, she just might be his ideal woman.

The whole thing about relationships and feelings confuses the heck out of Calhoun. He’s a simple cowboy and he’d been planning to marry a long-time friend for a while. When he finally realizes it doesn’t feel right, he lets her go. He probably shouldn’t have gone to her wedding to another man, but she wanted him there. But that’s when he really gets confused. His eye is drawn to a seriously hot businessman…and that sure does unnerve him…and yet….

Emotionally burned by the last man he thought he’d loved, Daniel isn’t anxious to replace him. But there is something about the proud, bedroom-eyed cowboy who shows up at his friend’s wedding. The CEO isn’t even sure if the cowboy’s gay, although the heat firing between them makes him wonder….

What he does know is that he plans to find out.

Their Lady Gloriana re-release

BLURB – Their Lady Gloriana

In medieval times honorable men had to do what was required of them by the kings to whom they were loyal…

Thomas Lancaster, a widower with bad memories of marriage and a young son he barely knew was a hardened knight loyal to his king. In reward for his efforts fighting in the Crusades, King Edward gave him Middlemound Castle to hold for the crown. But the king decreed that he must marry the beautiful young widow of the castle’s previous lord.

Lady Gloriana Stewart had suffered brutally in her first marriage and had no desire to marry again. Yet she had no choice. She had to protect her people and obey her king.

All she wanted was for her new husband to give her a baby.
Having already lost one wife in childbirth, Thomas refused to even consider it.

Sir Rowan Montgomery, Thomas’s first knight, friend, and lover complicated the situation even more. Thomas didn’t want to give up Rowan and Gloriana didn’t want to admit she had feelings for her husband and for Rowan.

EXCERPT – PG13 – Their Lady Gloriana

Lady Gloriana could barely draw in a breath. Her life with Geoffrey had done this to her. He’d battled down her self-worth, her dreams of having a happy family, and her natural zest for life. She needed to find the strength to face this new marriage to this war-hardened warrior. She had to make him respect her. Most of all, she had to endure relations with him until he got her with child.

The great hall rang with the sounds of joyous reunions. She heard the deep tone of an unfamiliar voice. It rang with authority, with power, much like Geoffrey’s voice had. Yet something about it drew her instead of repelling her. Something about it called to her woman’s place and she felt warmth spreading there. The reaction surprised her.

Her focus moved to the raised dais. Two such different—and yet the same—men stood there drinking cups of ale. Neither smiled. Both seemed to study her.

Gerald guided her to the dais. “Lady Middlemound, my lord.” He nodded toward the two powerfully built men. “Lord Montrose, my lady. And Sir Montgomery, his first knight.”

“Thomas,” Lord Montrose said and stepped down in front of her. He towered over her by at least a foot. His breadth and brawn made her heart race. Yet she didn’t feel intimidated by him.

Then the other man stepped down. As she glanced up, he gave her a crooked smile. “And you may call me Rowan.”

She felt her heart race even more.

Tanya Montrose was sexually harassed by her former boss and falsely accused of ruining his marriage. Men are seriously on her bad list. Her best friend invites her to Kansas so she can work for her older brother on his ranch. If Tanya didn’t need the job so badly, she’d refuse. The man gives all new meaning to the word “hot.” She doesn’t need that kind of temptation after what she’s gone through. And he doesn’t want her there, even if he does need a good accountant. Plus he tells her that he has a lot of rules and time schedules, and that she will be expected to follow them or face consequences.

Drew Weatherford is worn out from the stress of running a ranch, an animal rescue foundation, and trying to keep up with the books.  Then his sister shows up with her friend and informs him Tanya is the answer to his bookkeeping problems. Maybe so, but she’s more temptation than he wants. She’s the exact opposite of his two ex-wives and so not his type of woman. Really. Not his type. A month. He’ll give her a month.

The Sheriff's Rebellious BrideBLURB: The Marshal’s Rebellious Bride by Starla Kaye

Whiskey, the mischievous imp of Dodge City, thought it was bad enough for her brothers to sell their shares of her father’s ranch to their US Marshal friend, Morgan, but what was even worse was that those men all had it in mind that Whiskey would actually marry Morgan–this hard, firm, large man she had barely met before.

Morgan thought Whiskey just needed a firm hand to keep her in line, but Whiskey, who is constantly getting tied up dangerous situations, was nearly impossible to control. Things get even more complicated when her twin sister comes into town.

But Morgan has a dark shadow following in his path, threatening the peaceful life he meant to create with Whiskey. Will they come through this together? Or will Morgan’s past bring tragedy on everything he now holds dear?

Kayla and the rancherBLURB: Kayla and the Rancher by Paige Tyler

Cord Holderness needs a wife, but with few prospects in the Wyoming Territory, the only way to find a well-bred young lady is to get a mail-order bride. However, the girl that’s supposed to be his bride gets cold feet and leaves it up to her new friend, Kayla Mathison, to tell him that she’s changed her mind.

When the handsome rancher assumes that the fiercely independent and stubborn Kayla is his mail-order bride, she finds herself going along with it. Running from an arranged marriage herself, she decides to lead Cord on so she can steal the money she needs from him. As the days turn into weeks, she finds that the money doesn’t interest her anymore, especially when Cord puts her over his knee and spanks her whenever she becomes a little too willful for his liking. Much to her surprise, she discovers that she’s fallen in love with him.

Life on the ranch gets even more complicated when a ruthless land baron tries to take over every piece of grazing land in the territory, including Cord’s, and will do anything to get it. Then, as if that weren’t enough, Kayla’s very determined fiancé comes to town looking for her. But Kayla has built this relationship with Cord by letting him think that she’s someone else. Can she hope that Cord loves her enough to forgive her when he find out she’s not really his mail-order bride?

Mail Order MamaBLURB: Mail Order Mama by Courage Knight

Morgan gazed out of the stagecoach window, struggling to keep her disappointment from showing. She’d traveled hundreds of miles to marry a man she had never met before – a widower with five children, a hundred and sixty acres, and a flock of sheep. It had sounded so romantic once, before the dirty, dusty reality sprawled before her in all its fetid glory. She scanned the crowd, wondering which of the paunchy, balding men would claim her.

None of them, apparently. Mr. John O’Shea was nowhere to be seen. What’s more, the townspeople try to convince her to leave, to give up her dreams without even meeting her intended. They believe he’s not quite right in the head. Undaunted, she hires a driver to take her to his homestead.

But when she finally meets the man who sent the poetic letters and fare for her passage, her dreams are shattered, for John O’Shea is little more than a child himself. Had she come all this way for nothing? Would she ever be a bride, or was it her destiny to be a mail-order mama?

Depths of DesireBLURB: Depths of Desire by Carolyn Faulkner

A bright, adventurous young woman dreams of travelling to the Western frontier, but in the late 1800s, young women were expected to be neither bright nor adventurous. Despite the contentedness she sees in her mother, whom she knows is spanked by her father, Mary Rose thinks she’s looking for independence and the opposite of what her parents have.

Heroes come in strange packages and she’s not long there before a rough-seeming package finds reason to put her over his knee. Once she realizes he was right, she’s faced with a strange compulsion for someone -and something- she thought she’d never want.

OVERALL – Her Cowboy’s Way

Brandi has known Colby Pennington for most of her life and has loved him almost as long. Getting married, though, is a serious matter. The whole love, honor, and obey thing might be more than she can handle. Marriage is about an equal partnership, not having to follow anyone else’s rules. It is about having someone there whenever and wherever you want sex. Brandi is definitely okay with that part, especially with her sinfully handsome cowboy.

SHORT STORIES INCLUDED in Her Cowboy’s Way

The Bride Wore Red

Brandi has known Colby Pennington for most of her life and has loved him almost as long. Getting married, though, is a serious matter. The whole love, honor, and obey thing might be more than she can handle.  Marriage is about an equal partnership, not having to follow anyone else’s rules. It is about having someone there whenever and wherever you want sex. Brandi is definitely okay with that part, especially with her sinfully handsome cowboy.  But the obey issue, that Colby intends to take care of her in all ways—including occasionally warming her bottom…Well, it could be a deal breaker.

Misbehavin’ in Mexico

Brandi is excited to be on her honeymoon, away from her business, clients, and the demands of Colby’s ranch. She has her hunky cowboy all to herself in Cozumel and she wants nothing but fun, hot sex, more fun, and definitely more sex. Everything should be perfect… But she manages to push her limits with Colby and things turn “hotter” than she’d hoped for.

A Chocolate Kind of Day

The day doesn’t start off well and Brandi’s mood could be better. She’d crossed one of Colby’s lines between right and wrong and paid for it. When she finds a box of Godiva chocolates that she’d hidden away, her mood improves…even if her doctor and Colby warned her against eating too many chocolates.

Boredom = Trouble

Brandi has fallen into a b-o-r-i-n-g rut and needs a change. Colby doesn’t like changes except when it comes to making love with his wife. She can’t veer away from the same old breakfast every morning, basic meals of meat and potatoes, making sure the ranch’s accounting is kept up, household chores done. Above all, she is to leave cleaning up the garage to him. But she’s bored and he never seems to have the time so…for several reasons, she should have listened to his warning.

Naughty in Vegas

Brandi has been looking forward to Colby’s surprise gift of a trip to Las Vegas. She wants to have fun at the slots, but is determined to stick with the spending limit he’d given her. She doesn’t want to get on his bad side; instead she wants to be very “naughty” on this special trip. Colby is definitely in for a surprise of his own.

Warm All Over

Making promises and holding to them is important. Brandi really meant to run the small errand Colby had asked of her. She’d meant to stick to their agreed upon budget when she’d gone shopping. She’d meant to stick to the speed limit. All the “meant to’s” didn’t cut it with him this time. Still, after he’d “warmed” her up, she brings out something special she’d bought for loving her husband and the night gets even hotter.

Needing Her Cowboy

Brandi’s tax business has driven her crazy lately, the pressures wearing her down. Making it all worse, Colby has been away on a business trip and she feels like he has abandoned her. She needs him home to help her calm down in his special way and to love her in his sheet-blazing round of cowboy-does-his-wife-good style.

The Cattleman’s Ball

Brandi just wants to stay home on this cold, dreary night, take a hot bath, and snuggle next to Colby. She isn’t in a partying mood. But Colby insists they go to the annual Cattleman’s Ball, won’t change his mind no matter how tempting an offer she makes him. It takes some extra “incentive” to improve her attitude and agree to go. And she’s curious about why he is so determined to go.

“It’s just a family meal” Colby had said. Was he nuts? It’s the first meal she was making for his family since they’d gotten married. She was a crazy woman and getting crazier by the second.
