 We have an exciting new author in our midst, TESS MATHEWS.

This is Tess’ second book with Blushing, her first historical Western was The Sheriff Takes a Bride and now, she brings us, Cassidy’s Gentleman.Tess has joined the crazy and rewarding world of writers in our Blushing Family. I truly enjoyed her first book and look forward to this second one, written in my favorite place and time: Texas 1880’s…wonder if Cassidy ever met my Texanna?

Welcome, Tess!

Let’s have a peek inside Cassidy’s Gentleman…

Cassidy’s Gentleman

 By Tess Matthews

Texas in the 1880s was no place for a tenderfoot. Thornton Steele is a gentleman from the East, but he came to run a ranch, and he has the strength and determination to do so. He dreams of starting a new life, free of the strictures of his traditional Maryland family, and he is ready and willing to take on whatever barriers are put in his way. The lawless West of the time provides those barriers in plenty.

 

Cassidy Hart, a Texas native, shares that dream of starting her life over in another place, but she, by her own account, is no lady. Daughter of an unwed mother, she takes care of herself the best she can in the same little town where she was born, even though the wide-open sky is the only roof she can call her own. She is tough, because she has to be, but sensitive, because that’s the way her mother raised her before dying young.

 

The gentleman and the not-quite lady are thrown together by circumstance, and the attraction is instantaneous. Still, Cassidy cannot help but doubt the Easterner’s sincerity, and pushes back, even as she is drawn to his strength, charm, and good looks.

 

Thornton, being a man who knows what he wants, wastes no time attempting to prove his love and concern for Cassidy’s well being. Oftentimes, however, to Cassidy’s chagrin, he demonstrates that concern with his strict hand on her bare bottom.

 

That, of course, is not the end of the lesson, and Cassidy soon learns to look forward to the soft caresses and kisses that follow a session over the big man’s lap.

 

Cassidy’s Gentleman is a story of love and fun, intrigue and violence in the scarcely tamed West. It also is a true romance, with plenty of loving domestic discipline in the form of spanking.

 

Publisher’s Note: Cassidy’s Gentleman is a romance novel that contains descriptions of sex and of domestic discipline in the form of bare-bottom spanking and paddling. If such subject matter offends you, please do not read this book.

 

Makes you want to get out there and buy it. I just did!

 

This bite will keep you coming back. I am SURE she knows my Texanna!

Read this!

“Get back, Thorne, I’m warning you.” Cassidy picked up a vase and held it up.

“Do not threaten me, little girl. If you throw that vase you are only adding to your

trouble!”

The vase whizzed by Thorne and smashed on the opposite wall.

Thorne grabbed Cassidy by the elbow.

“Now, Cassidy, I am going to teach you not to be an ungrateful foul-mouthed brat.”

“Let me go, you overgrown ox, I warn you, you better let me go or you will be sorry!”

“No, little girl, I am sure you are the only one who will be sorry.”

Thorne pulled Cassidy toward the study.

“What is going on in here? We heard a crash!”

“Tillie, you and Gus go back to what you were doing, Cassidy and I are going to have a

discussion in the study.”

“No, Tillie, please,” Cassidy shrieked. “He has lost his mind.”

“Cassidy, why are you afraid of Mr. Thorne?”

“I will tell you why, Tillie, she is afraid because Mr. Thorne has had enough of her bratty

behavior and he is going to spank her backside till it glows crimson red.”

Tillie gasped.

“Let’s go Tillie, this ain’t none of our affair,” added Gus.

Tillie gave Cassidy a painful smile and walked away.

“No, Tillie, please don’t—”

Taming Texanna

This is from the WIP that I am working the most on right now.

Texanna has been hauled into U.S. Marshall Colton McFadden’s office by her father to answer for her disgrace with a forfeit of both of their freedoms. Colt is fine with it, but Anna, not so much.

“…Don’t be an ass, Pa.”
“Texanna,” was the response from both men. Her father yelled and Colt much quieter but his tone was hard as steel and could easily be heard over Mr. Grant.
He knew she was angry and had every right to be, but her mouth and her disrespect was not acceptable although it was understandable. He held his further admonishment because he did not have the heart to call her down concerning something with which he agreed. He did, however, cut her off quickly as she looked to speak again. He wasn’t used to any person defending him or his actions. He didn’t ask for that from anyone either. However, he did worry about her father’s response towards her.
“Sir, I can assure you it was just a spanking.”
“A spanking on the bare, you mean.”
“Well, yes sir. I promise you that was not my intention but, well, there were no drawers and since I had already seen, I thought turning a butt red was not the same thing as seeing her, you know, in that type of way.”
“It doesn’t matter. You have spoiled her.” Mr. Grant had yet to lower his voice since entering the office. Colton was sure that even if no one knew before they came into the room, it was a sure thing that they would know now.
“Spoiled her for whom, exactly? Did she have a beau?” He looked over to Anna as she yanked her arm out of her father’s hand, threw up her hands and then landed them on her hips.
“No. And quit talking like I am not in the room.” Texanna proclaimed loud and clear.
Colt gave her a withering look that quite plainly said to hush. “Did she tell anyone of the incident? Did you?” he looked first at her father and then Texanna. “For I assure you I did not.”
“No,” answered both in an irritated manner.
“Then who have we spoiled really? Only the three of us know and I am not telling that your daughter did not have drawers on and when I went to discipline her at her request, she was bare.”
“What do you mean ‘at her request’?” Colton looked at the man and cocked his head to the side. It was as though he had not heard anything that had been said earlier. Texanna had clearly said she had begged for the spanking, but clearly Mr. Grant did not hear it or he chose not to acknowledge it.
“Pa I tried to tell you but you-”
“Quiet girl, you are in enough trouble.” He turned to Colt and said, “But I’ll know and that is enough.”
Colt could see the unrelenting fury that her father had brought her to and he did not want to step in the middle of that. He felt it was justified. The man did not see or hear his daughter and Colt wondered how long he had treated Texanna that way. From the sounds of it all, it had been quite a while. Colt loved the lightning bolts shooting from her angry eyes. His cock did too.
“I see. Well then, I will marry her if that is what you need to happen.”

“The hell you will.”
