I'm already up to W, the end is near! I've been having a blast with the Spanking from A-Z Blogging Challenge, I hope you had as much fun reading.
Full disclosure, the title of this post is stolen from the subject line of the email Renee Rose sent me with her book info.
If you had told me 18 months ago that I would be getting personal emails from Renee Rose-- I would have told you that you were nuts! Sometimes I still get a little fangirl star struck, and then she sends me an email with that as a subject and I am all like "Stars, they're just like us!"
Anyway, I reached out to Renee to see if she wanted to visit for my W post with an excerpt from her new Western because I just finished reading The Outlaw's Bride, and I loved it!!
I think I have a little crush on Mabelle. Yes, I know I should be crushing on her sexy outlaw man, Sam (who, trust me, you will swoon over), but Mabelle was so sassy I fell in love with her instantly. I also really appreciated that she did not lose her sass and in fact kept it right up until the very end.
This excerpt actually happens later on in the book, and I think it shows Mabelle at her sassy/sweet best!
“Who makes the decisions?”
“You has the final say?”
“Did I have your best interest at heart today?”
“What should I do now?”
She could not believe he wanted her to say it. She drew her brows together and scowled. Putting her hands on her hips, she suggested, “Kiss me?”
She felt fortunate when he laughed, because she knew she pushed her luck.
“I will be doing that, too. After our reckoning.”
He unbuttoned his jacket and removed it, tossing it on the chair with her clothing. The vest followed, and he rolled up his sleeves. Unfastening his belt, he slid the gun holsters off and wound the buckle end around his fist until a length just over a foot remained.
She watched, her heart beating erratically, her mouth dry.
“Lie over the pillows so your bottom is lifted in the air.”
The Outlaw’s Bride by Renee Rose
Mabelle Lawson had been managing her dead sister’s ranch without help for three months. The last thing she needs is a band of outlaws showing up and pushing her around. The Curly James gang members have no patience for her sass, and when their leader attempts to strike her with his fist, one of his men volunteers to spank her instead. She wants to hate the good-looking outlaw, but he seems to have her well-being at heart, even risking his life to protect her from the other men.
Unjustly accused of murder, Sam Pride is on the run and his luck worsens when he tangles with the Curly James gang. The only bright spot is the little spitfire rancher who steals his heart with her courage and spunk. When the two set off together for Cheyenne and then Denver, sparks fly and their magnetic connection grows.
Still, Mabelle is not sure if Sam will commit and even if he does, can he clear his name before a bounty hunter shoots him or brings him in?
