My new historical Western Their Firm Men has rather a funny title. Let me assure you, though, that the spankings, and the sex, are, shall we say, Tilton-esque.
Wordlessly, her fiancé walked over to her, and took his stand before her in the parlor, rubbing his hands together gently in front of him. Something about the way he carried out the simple gesture, together with the sight of his stern countenance, made Esther wish she had fled. Her heart beat wildly in her chest, and she began to feel a little ill with the dread. Esther Addison was about to be spanked by her fiancé.
She imagined it suddenly as an item in the gossip column of the Examiner:
Yesterday, we hear, the debutante of the season, EA, ran afoul of her intended's firm right hand. We know that many in this town will be grateful to him, as the whisperers have long maintained that a good sound spanking is exactly what the haughty EA has required for quite some time. We wish the couple joy, and hope that Capt. A will not be loath to repeat the chastisement as necessary.Here's the blurb! Buy it here!
When she hears about the engagement of her sister, Esther, to one of San Francisco’s wealthiest merchants, twenty-five-year-old Amelia Lander decides it is high time she obeyed her mother’s last wish—that she watch over her younger sister. Amelia leaves her teaching job in New York City and travels by train to San Francisco, where she loses no time in calling on Esther and her new husband, Samuel Allen, and providing them with proof that she is Esther’s sister and that her existence has been intentionally concealed by their father for seventeen years, since Esther was a toddler.
Samuel suggests that Amelia live with them, but when Esther says something impolite and Samuel tells her—in front of Amelia—that she can expect to be soundly spanked for her rudeness, Amelia is shocked. Samuel informs Amelia that he will run his house as he sees fit, and when she responds with insults and defiance, Amelia soon finds herself over the knee of Samuel’s business partner, Michael Sullivan, for a long, hard spanking on her bare bottom. In spite of her shame and fury, however, Amelia cannot help but be drawn to the man who chastised her so thoroughly.
When she learns that her father is once again up to no good, Amelia runs straight to Michael with the news, and he and Samuel form a plan to stop him. But can Amelia bring herself to obey Michael and stay out of the way, or will her foolhardy actions cost the life of the man she has reluctantly come to love?
