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—”

SHE NEEDED TO RELEASE CONTROL AS MUCH AS HE NEEDED TO HAVE IT

 

And here is a little tease…

 

You aren’t keeping the Spencer Spread as a client. Call him up and tell him.” He turned to wash his hands.

“Duly noted but I’m going to take on that account.” She began chopping the salad ingredients with a heavy hand.

He wiped his hands then reached over to stay her movements. “Cheyenne, is this going to be one of those times that I have to put my foot down?”

She sighed. “Quinlan, this is my business. You agreed I had full reign over my business.” She slipped out of his hold and whacked the tip of a carrot with concentrated intent.

Quinn reached over and took the knife. “I’m going to watch carefully, and if you begin to show signs of stress, we will have another discussion. I’m not happy that you’ve decided to go against me.”

Cheyenne backed away from the counter. Huffing in irritation, she turned to look at her husband and rolled her eyes, making another aggravated sound.

“Did you just roll your eyes at me?” She chose not to answer him but turned abruptly back to the salad reaching again for the knife he had put on the cutting board.

Leaning over her back, pinning her to the counter, he placed his mouth near her ear. “Did you also turn away from me?” He shook his head. “I think someone needs a refresher on how to be respectful to her dom, piscín.”

Her pulse that had stayed calm as they discussed the new client was suddenly thumping wildly. His lowered voice and physical nearness were kicking up her pussy response without regard for her mental disagreement. She forced herself to straighten.

“I’m just cooking your dinner while I try to work out the structure of my new account and placate my husband. I need to work to feel productive. This does it for me.” Her breathing became more labored, but her anger was also a companion emotion. She never considered that he would use her libido against her.

“Placate?”  He caressed her well-covered breasts.

Sucking in a deep breath, holding it and blowing it out gave her more lucidity. She tried to push back, but he would not allow it. She tried another approach, offense.

“Suddenly, I need to defend my right to own a business. One that I had, I might point out, long before I had you. Now, either finish your own dinner or leave me to it.”

She picked up steam vocally as she issued the ultimatum and waited for his response. The threat, however, was made less intimidating with him pinning her to the counter and her body on fire. He stepped back and slid his hand up the skirt she had worn to sign her contract earlier in the day. She felt the pressure of his less dominant hand on her back. He caressed her backside. She wanted to moan. She wanted to say the hell with it all and play with her sexy husband. Cheyenne felt a shiver just before Quinlan slapped his right hand down hard.

“Ow.” She screeched and stamped her foot. “Yellow, sir. You can’t spank me because I don’t agree with you.”

He leaned down into her ear, “Well played, Piscín. Now I want some recreation tonight. After dinner is over, go take a shower and meet me downstairs. I have a new flogger to try, and if you’re good, I might even give you a good girl spanking.” He shrugged. “If you aren’t, I can do the naughty girl one just as well.”

He kissed the tender spot behind her ear and left to shower before dinner. She was already hot for that man. She needed relief and now it was all she could think of. Damn it. He had turned the tables on her.
