The Submissive Suffragette ~ Amelia Smarts

A huge welcome to Amelia Smarts and her book The Submissive Suffragette - Book One of her Lone Star Love series!
I'm a sucker for a well-written western, and if the cowboys in said western spanks their women ... well that's even better!

About the Lone Star Love Series
My latest release is part of my Lone Star Love series with Blushing Books. While writing The Unbraiding of Anna Brown, about lonely widower Carter and sweet, plainspoken Anna who lights his way out of a dark depression, I came to understand the woman Carter was mourning. Carter's first wife, Nalin, was sharp, feisty, and different from Anna in just about every way. I felt that Nalin and Carter deserved their own story, which led me to write The Submissive Suffragette, Book One in the series. Missy Meets the Marshal (Book Three) is as much an action and adventure story as it is a spanking romance. In it you'll find villains, bounty hunters, murder, and a conscientious lawman who makes a life-altering choice to follow his heart instead of the law. And while these three books do make up a series, they can each be read and enjoyed as standalones. I hope you enjoy reading these books as much as I enjoyed writing them!

About The Submissive Suffragette
It’s the late 1800s and women are beginning to fight against the accepted roles of submissive housewife and mother. The suffragette movement is gaining ground. Nalin is one of these women. She is a devoted wife to Carter, and desperately longs for motherhood. But she is struggling to balance those desires with her belief that women need to be equal to men, and this starts, to her way of thinking, with the right to vote. She begins defying all the normal conventions – she wears pants instead of skirts to town, she cusses, she talks back to her husband. The consequences of her actions are that Carter takes a firm hand to her backside.

Carter, on the other hand, has always been quite happy with the status quo and is becoming more and more frustrated with Nalin’s constant defiance of all things considered lady-like. He has even come to believe that disciplining his recalcitrant wife is pointless. But her reaction to this declaration confuses them both.

Carter and Nalin both want children, but have so far suffered more than one devastating loss. They are both thrilled when Nalin again becomes pregnant. However, now she’s demanding to attend the suffragette convention in Dallas. Carter loves his wife, so despite his initial reservations, he agrees to see her safely to the convention and back again.

Their adventure takes a few twists and turns along the way. Will this couple safely and successfully navigate their way through these turbulent times and find the happily ever after they both deserve?

Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit erotic and spanking scenes. If such material offends you, please do not purchase.




Excerpt
She stood in front of him and looked into his eyes. His expression was stony. She couldn’t find a trace of tenderness.

"I'm sorry, Carter," she said, tears flowing freely. "Please punish me, I deserve it. But please don't hate me."

Carter didn't respond right away, and each second that ticked by filled Nalin with increasing fear that he would never forgive her.

"Why would you ask me not to hate you? I'm angry enough, Nalin, without that nonsense."

Nalin could tell he was struggling to keep his voice level. "I'm sorry,” she said, crying. “But Carter, I’m so afraid. Tell me my wicked deed hasn’t caused you to lose your love for me. I beg you to tell me that before you punish me. I’ve never seen that look on your face. It looks like you hate me and will never forgive me. I can’t bear it!"

Carter raised his voice to a bellow, which took her by surprise, since he rarely yelled at her. "This is the look of a husband who feels betrayed by his wife! It's the look of a man angry with himself for not stowing that money properly at the bank or in a safe. It's the look of a business owner worried about the future of his business and his ability to pay his employees. It is not, I repeat, not, the look of a man who hates you.”

In a stern voice closer to its usual volume, he added, “I will always love you. Is that what you need to hear, young lady?"

"Y-yes. Thank you, Carter." She hiccupped.

He scowled at her. "Say it. Say, 'My husband will always love me'."

Nalin did so in a quiet, trembling voice.

“Say it again. Louder and with confidence.”

“My husband will always love me,” she repeated, trying to settle her sobs.

“Again!” he shouted, and slammed his palm down on the kitchen table.

“My husband will always love me!”

"Do you believe it? You will repeat it until you do, even if it takes all night."

"Yes, sir. I-I believe it."

"Good. You're going to need to remember how much I love you during this punishment. Bend over the table and lift your skirts."

About Amelia Smarts
#1 Amazon Bestseller in Historical Erotica and Erotic Westerns!

I'm an author of romance novels featuring domestic discipline/spanking. Usually my stories involve a cowboy, and they always involve a man's firm hand connecting with a woman's naughty backside. It's important to me that I tell a good story in addition to portraying hot sex and discipline scenes. I write complex, flawed heroes and heroines who struggle and succeed in their journey to love and happiness.

I hold graduate and undergraduate degrees in creative writing and English, and I love the written word. If you'd like to talk books with me, feel free to drop me a note at amelia_smarts@yahoo.com. Happy reading!
