The Problem With Jordan by Joannie Kay
“Dearly beloved,” the minister began.
Cray glared at the man of the cloth, at the sheriff and all the townspeople who were forcing him to marry the little hellcat he’d caught stealing his eggs. If he’d known she was a woman, he never would have tried to spank her. But she’d been dressed in pants and a too-big coat, and had taken her last egg from his chickens. He’d cornered her once before, but she’d lied about her name and slipped past him. Then he’d tracked her to the rundown cabin at the edge of town and he’d walloped her hard before she bit him. She must have run straight to the sheriff with yet another story. The only amusing part was that she clearly was not any more pleased with this turn of events than he was.
“This is all your fault, mister,” his new bride hissed at him.
He took off after her even as the townspeople, their task completed, abandoned them. He grabbed the squirming little woman and gave her the rest of that spanking she had coming. And then he fed her. She might be a liar and a thief, but she was also scared, and skinny, and hungry! And now she was his problem, one he wouldn’t walk away from, although he suspected he was going to have his hands full trying to turn her into a sweet, respectable young wife.
Unbound for Promises by Mindy Taylor
In this second volume of Taylor’s Bound To Him series, Kierra Foster must deal with serious issues and questions surrounding the break-up with her former master, Chandler Thorne. Though she is perhaps the most pampered nursing school student on the planet, her emotional baggage threatens at times to overwhelm her, especially when Chandler urges her to pursue the path of submissive sexuality upon which he set her while they were together.
Reluctantly at first, she takes his advice and visits an exclusive sex club that caters to a select BDSM clientele. She immediately is enthralled by, and taken into the expert hands of, the club’s leading lights–the powerful and potent alpha male Masters who direct and dictate the numerous manifestations of kink that go on within the facility’s plush confines.
But Kierra finds it difficult to move on completely. Her heart, at least partially, still belongs to Chandler, whether she likes it or not. Will his continued attentions lead to her satisfaction, or simply push her further away?
