Monday’s featured gem is Crystal from Crystal’s Calamity, by the fabulous Stevie MacFarlane.  

About The Red Petticoat series:

The Red Petticoat Saloon series is a collection of books written by #1 and USA Today bestselling authors. Each book tells the unique story of a different woman, 'a gem', who comes to the saloon to find a safe haven and discovers they become part of a family. Recurring characters appear in each book to allow readers continuity as they learn about the women who have learned to bend but have not broken under the harshness that life has to offer. It is a series where strong, loving men find not only entertainment at the saloon but the special women who reside under its roof.

Now for our featured attraction, a steamy, spanky excerpt from 
Crystal’s Calamity:

"Bend over the bed," he commanded harshly.

Clementine turned away from him and slowly bent forward. She wasn't tall enough so he grasped her hips and lifted her into the position he wanted, her legs dangling off the side of the bed. With one hand planted firmly between her shoulders he lifted her skirts.

Her drawers were already ripped from his inquisitive fingers on their ride from town, and with a quick yank, they shredded and fell away from her. She was gorgeous; her snow white bottom was framed by the underside of the red petticoat and the black stockings clinging to her thighs. Almost gleefully he swatted her behind, hard, and watched his handprint appear.

It brought him pleasure to mark her, even in this small temporary way. He slapped her again thinking of the sting on his cheek as he'd carried her upstairs and again as he remembered his anger as she walked downstairs arm in arm with that old man.

Sitting on the bed, he snaked his arm around her waist and pulled her to his hip, spanking her again and again. To her credit she didn't cry out until he lost count of the handprints staining her cheeks.

"Jasper, please," she sobbed out.

"What do you want?" he asked, pausing.

"Um… I'm sorry," she cried, turning to look at him over her shoulder. He doubted his expression was reassuring.

"For what?" he demanded. "What are you sorry for, Crystal?" He drawled her Gem name out as though it were a foul word.

"I-I don't know, for whatever I've done to make you so angry," she sniffed.

"You'll have to be more specific," he snapped, slapping her again.

"I can't," she yelled. "I don't know what I've done. It wasn't a secret," she screamed at him as tears ran down her cheeks. "You knew what I was, what I am. You knew I was going to take men to my room and why! What did you expect?" she sobbed, her shoulders shaking as she collapsed on the bed.

Jasper raised his hand and froze. Everything she said was the God awful truth. He wasn't spanking her because of anything she'd done. She hadn't deceived him, hadn't lied. She never pretended to be anything other than what she was. No, he was spanking her because of what he'd done, fallen in love with her.

Great wealth allows him to do exactly as he pleases and when the dirty little miner's daughter arrives at The Red Petticoat he takes pity on her. He'll be her first paying customer, educating the poor virgin on the skills necessary to please a man. In his mind, there was no sense letting a rough miner ruin her.
