Welcome to my blog for #WipItUp Wednesday!
I'm so excited to share the cover for my western The Code of the West which is due to be released on Friday 13th November!
This awesome cover was made by the extremely talented Korey Mae Johnson at Stormy Night Publications. Thanks Korey!
In the years since the tragic death of her parents, Jedda-Lyn Cross has given everything she has to keep the family ranch running. She has grown accustomed to getting no help at all from her alcoholic brother, but when his violent, sadistic friend tries to make Jedda his wife against her will, it is the last straw.
Her attacker is the son of the richest family in town, and with the corrupt sheriff ready to do his bidding Jedda is desperate to leave town in a hurry. With no money and no horse, her best chance of making her escape comes in the form of a soon-to-be-departing cattle drive led by the famous trail boss Wes Jordan. But a young woman has little hope of gaining employment on a cattle drive, so drastic measures will be required…
Wes is none too pleased when he discovers that the new drover he hired is actually a beautiful twenty-two-year-old woman disguised as a boy, but after hearing Jedda’s story he promises to protect her. As he quickly realizes, however, that will be easier said than done. Jedda is sassy, headstrong, and in serious need of a good, hard, bare-bottom spanking, and when her reckless disregard for her own safety finally pushes him too far, Wes takes her firmly in hand.
After a painful, humiliating punishment from the handsome trail boss, Jedda is left with her bottom burning and her mind set awhirl. In spite of everything, she aches for Wes to take her in his arms, and when at last he does the pleasure of his skillful, passionate lovemaking nearly takes her breath away. But with her obsessed former suitor and his hired guns still after her, can she bring herself to accept the fact that, for a man like Wes, risking his life to protect the woman he loves is just part of what it means to live by the code of the west.
Publisher’s Note: The Code of the West is an erotic romance novel that contains sexual scenes and spankings, including domestic discipline in a historical setting. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.
Exiting the water, Wes spread the towel on the ground in the sun and lay her down on it. The sun warmed her skin, drying the droplets of water that remained on her body, softening her nipples that the cold water had hardened. Gooseflesh covered her body, and Wes trailed his rough fingers over them with the lightest touch, tickling her. Straddling her, he lowered his lips to hers, devouring her hungrily, but before she was sated, he moved his body lower, kissing her throat, her shoulder, trailing kisses all the way down the middle of her body. His hands encircled her breasts, squeezing them gently, as he kissed lightly between them, moving his lips further down her body, kissing away the remaining droplets of water from the stream. He circled his tongue around her navel, tickling her, teasing her.
Her breasts were tight in his hands, tight and hot, as though they would burst. The dull ache between her legs intensified, pulsing in rhythm with the rapid beat of her heart. Her breaths were coming in short, shallow gasps as he pressed her back against the towel. What was he doing to her?
Coming this weekend!
The Code of the West is a standalone sequel to The Ways of the West.
