Felicity Brandon’s 1/2 cover Reveal

TVP Cover Reveal 2.png

After she saves the life of Prince Anders, the Viking warrior who took her as his captive and tamed both her body and her heart, nineteen-year-old Princess Aurelie of Donrose knows that she can never return home again. She will belong to Anders forever, as his bride and his possession, destined to be used and enjoyed as thoroughly, shamefully, and often as he pleases.

Though Anders has proven many times that he is more than willing to punish her bare bottom harshly for any disobedience, with war fast approaching between her brother and her husband, Aurelie puts her own life in danger in the hopes of making peace. But when her reckless gamble goes wrong, can Anders rescue his headstrong young wife before any harm comes to her?

The Viking’s Possession is the sequel to The Viking’s Conquest, but can be read as a stand-alone novel. It includes spankings, and sexual scenes, including some scenes of sexual humiliation. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.

 

A gentlemen rancher, an outcast tough girl and a paddle in the desk drawer

 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—”
