Wyoming Heat series
A Firm Husband (Wyoming Heat, Book 1)
Clara Sutton feels trapped on her pa's Buffalo, Wyoming ranch, so she runs off to board the Union Pacific Railroad in Cheyenne. She'll find a nice town on the east coast, far away from all the suitors she dislikes and glimpse the world outside Wyoming. But her plan falls to pieces when the very strict, and equally handsome, William Davies ruins her travel plans.
Resisting Mr. Davies charms is a challenge, especially when Clara learns he's her pa's new foreman. As they await the stagecoach bound for Buffalo, Clara discovers that William won't hesitate to administer a hard spanking to her bare bottom when she misbehaves. As sparks fly and Clara's feelings towards William soften, he proposes marriage. But when a man is shot in Cheyenne and an unexpected passenger boards the stagecoach bound for Buffalo, their happiness is threatened by the rancher disputes in Johnson County.
A Strict Husband (Wyoming Heat, Book 2)
In a moment of anger, Mattie's brother, Elliot, promises to find her a strict husband who won't put up with any of her childish nonsense. Mattie is reluctant to leave the Wyoming ranch she grew up on, and she's devastated to learn Elliot wants her to marry an older man from Cheyenne.
Torn away from the only life she's ever known, she is wed to the owner of the local general store, a widower named Henry Riley who is nearly twice her age. Despite her anger over the forced marriage, Mattie strives to obey Henry in all things, especially after he threatens her with a spanking on their wedding night. Of course, it isn't long before Mattie discovers that obeying her new husband isn't so easy after all.
Henry never planned to take a second wife, but when he's offered Mattie's hand in marriage, it's a temptation he can't resist. Sweet and young, but with a wild streak he aims to tame, he's grateful for another chance at love and happiness.
But when the brother of the man who shot Henry's first wife is spotted in Cheyenne, his newfound marital bliss is threatened. As the sheriff tries to hunt down the terror known as Big Lennie, Henry strives to keep Mattie out of harms way. Will Henry and Mattie prevail over the gunslinger with a grudge? Or is history doomed to repeat itself?
