What’s a man to do when his intended bride decides she wants to make a career out of wrangling the undead?
What’s a girl to do when her fiance insists on spanking her every time she disobeys him and perhaps gets into a teeny tiny little bit of trouble?
And what will they both do when the mayor of Small City Texas manages to get himself staked by the aforementioned bride-to-be after embarking on a bender of disgraceful proportions?
Hold on to your hats! Still virginal heroine Annie Ring and the ever so stern Sheriff Kaine Scoresby return in this paranormal adventure romance, sequel to Twilight Cowboy.
“Please Kaine, it really wasn’t my fault.”
“I told you not to go out after dark on your own. You disobeyed me.”
“I thought it was more like a guideline than an actual rule.” I gave him my sweetest smile as he took me by the arm and drew me toward the long couch sitting right in the middle of his living room. Unfortunately, we were past the point where sweet smiles helped.
Kaine sat down. Then I got tipped over his knee. Then my skirt went up. My panties came down. And then his hard hand was clapping my cheeks like a metronome.
“Annie, I expect you to mind me,” he said, smacking away.
“Maybe you expect too much.”
There was a pause, then a much harder slap landed dead center of my cheeks, making me yowl.
“Do you think this is funny? You could have been seriously hurt.”
“I could have, but it wasn’t my damn fault. You want to punish someone, go punish the guy who attacked me.”
“This is about you going out when I told you not to. I’m not blaming you for what happened, I’m smacking your disobedient backside because you didn’t do as you were told.”
Whilst we argued, my backside was cooling. Kaine fixed that with a flurry of slaps which left me panting over his lap and squirming for all I was worth.
“You’re going to stay here from now on,” he said. “Clearly you can’t be trusted.”
“Yes, clearly, the twenty plus years I spent without you telling me what to do every five minutes have lead to nothing besides disaster.”
“Enough with the sarcasm, Annie. You were in plenty of trouble when we crossed paths, my little blood dealing slayer.”
I shrugged, not an easy task when you’re horizontal. “A girl has to make ends meet.”
“This girl has to do as she’s told,” Kaine said, making my cheeks bounce with several more slaps. “Because this guy isn’t taken in by her sweeter than sweet demeanor and knows she’s more trouble than all the vampires in the county put together.”
His hand lingered on my cheeks, rubbing the sting and the heat into my flesh. Slowly, the mood changed. I could feel the swell of his erection under my hip. My body was responding too, a certain slickness at the apex of my thighs giving my desire away.
