It's SatSpanks... So climb in the saddle and get ready to ride! Oh Baby!

Another western style #SatSpanks.
I know you LOVE it!

It's a very busy Saturday.  First, its release day for The Sons of Johnny Hastings which includes my novel The Juniper Bride.  Then of course, we have SatSpanks, and in addition, the Spanking A-Z Blog Challenge.  Phew!
Let's begin with my new release and SatSpanks first.





Five illegitimate sons of a profligate gambler; these half-brothers learn of their father's death, some learning for the first time that their brothers exist.  These rugged, handsome men, despite their unfortunate beginnings, grow to become strong, upstanding men (for the most part) in their own right, no thanks to their father. Still, from across the country they embark on a journey. Along with their sassy and sometimes mischievous brides, they travel to Denver for the reading of the will. For most, the will is the least of their concerns.  Instead, they have a burning curiosity to meet the other sons of Johnny Hastings.

Available for individual sale or as a boxed set which include five brand new stories by some of your favorite authors: Patty Devlin, Patricia Green, Renee Rose, Maddie Taylor (yours truly), and Mary Wehr.



My contribution...  The Juniper Bride


Emmalee Gray watches in frustration as her fiancé, Clinton Ryan, boards a train heading west. Told to stay behind and prepare for their wedding as Clint embarks on a mysterious errand, Em has other ideas. She doesn’t want to remain home without him, especially with her witch of a stepmother and a father who barely knows she exists. She’d much rather risk Clint’s wrath and follow him, planning to stay hidden until she gets so far away from Boston he wouldn’t dare send her back alone. Then she can enjoy some private time and maybe a little adventure with her gorgeous fiancé, in advance of their nuptials.

Unfortunately, Emmalee is a magnet for trouble and finds herself in one scrape after another. To keep her safe, Clint lays down the law: obey his orders or suffer the consequences over his knee.
Can they make it to their destination in one piece? When they do, and Clint’s past is revealed, how will Emmalee react, and will she ever find out why people keep calling her a "juniper bride?" With danger and intrigue swirling around them at every turn, can their passionate love survive?

My 8-line snippet:




“What are you doing?  Oo-oo, Clint, that stings!” 


“Shh, it will ease in a minute and soothe the ache in your muscles.” 


“I don’t think so,” she cried.  “My skin’s on fire, Clint! Stop!”


“Wait, Em, give it time.”


He continued to massage the white liniment into her skin and a few minutes later, she began to relax.  Sliding his hand lower, he massaged some into the backs of her thighs.  Finally, she eased and let out a sigh.  




 I had you at that first line, didn't I?  Sorry for being a tease and not spanking today.  Believe me, you won't find it lacking in The Juniper Bride.  If you want to read more excerpts, check out The Sons of Johnny Hastings Blog Tour.  For more brand spanking new excerpts from this awesome boxed set, hop over to the other author's posts.



 No, I didn't forget.  Today is G day and G is for Grigorio.
He is the absolutely mouth-watering, panty drenching, stunningly gorgeous (another g) model on the cover of both The Juniper Bride and The Sons of Johnny Hastings boxed set.   <sigh>
