The latest in the Red Petticoat Series by Livia Grant is here!

Dear Readers:
I can't believe my release day is finally here! When I was invited to write a story for the Red Petticoat Saloon series, I was honored and thrilled.  I jumped at the chance to work with so many of my favorite authors on this fun project.  That was last December.
Only as I sat down to finally get started writing Charlie and Emelie's story, did it really hit me that I had signed up to write not only an historical romance, but a western to boot; two new sub-genres I've never written in before.  I started out a bit nervous, but I ended up having a blast writing this story.  It helped that the authors before me created a rich, full of life world in Culpepper Cove with characters we have come to love.  It also helped having written two stories for the Corbin's Bend series, I have comfortable writing in an on-going series like the Red Petticoat Saloon.
I want to thank the authors who wrote before me as everyone was able to include cameo appearances of my hero, piano player extraordinaire, Charlie Walker. The first idea for my story came as I contemplated how hard it would be for a man working in the Red Petticoat to fall in love with a gem and then have to watch his woman taking customers upstairs night after night. Charlie deals with it about as well as you'd expect.
So I hope you enjoy this next installment of the Red Petticoat Saloon.  It can be read as a stand-alone, but I hope you go back and give the entire series a read as each book is awesome and unique.
Cheers and happy reading,
Melting Silver by Livia Grant

Emelie Svennson's dream is to sing on stage. When a musical troupe passes through her home in Wisconsin, she believes her dream will be fulfilled when the leader invites her to be the star of his show. By the time she realizes that he is nothing more than an abusive bully and her dream is now her nightmare, she finds herself stranded in San Francisco with no money and on the run from the law.  As she tries to make her way home to her family, she stops in Culpepper Cove and is drawn to the amazing melodies coming from the Red Petticoat Saloon.  The handsome piano player is almost as remarkable as his music. 

Charlie Walker adores all of the gems he works with, but from the minute he meets Emelie, he knows there is something special about her. As much as he wants her to stay in Culpepper Cove, the thought of her putting on red petticoats and entertaining men upstairs as Silver cuts him to the core. 

As their pasts clash, Charlie will have to work hard to convince his new gem that he will not only love and honor her, but that he won't hesitate to drag her across his knee for a bare-bottomed spanking that promises to warm more than just her backside.  Can he convince the woman with the voice of an angel that dreams can come true?

Leather and Grace takes a #1 in mysteries

 #1 in Mysteries 

Murder… Despair… Hope.
leather &GraceQuentin Doucet loves three things with a passion: working with leather, vintage motorcycles, and women who have chosen a life of submission. His life was perfect until the day Beth disappeared off the face of the earth. Unable to stay in the vibrant city of New Orleans, where the memories are just too painful and his sense of guilt is just too great, he walks away when darkness threatens to consume him. It is only his sense of duty that has him returning when his best friend and business partner Brody is laid up with a broken leg. Despite Quentin's insistence that he isn't going to stay once Brody is back on his feet, fate has other plans. The night he steps into an art gallery, he feels as if his eyes are opening for the first time in two years. The paintings on the walls stir his soul almost as much as the artist herself.
The moment Grace meets Quentin at her exhibition and looks into his eyes, she feels an irresistible urge to press her lips against the pulsing vein in his neck. When he later steps into the room as the leader of her first class in submission, she knows she wants to be his. He is an enigma that she longs to solve, but she's well aware that until he is free of the pain of his past, he will never be ready to step into the future.
With the help of a detective who refuses to allow a killer to go free, Quentin and Brody attempt to unravel a twisting labyrinth of clues to bring closure to a case long relegated to the cold files. The swamps of Louisiana hide the sins of many, but when Grace disappears, Quentin knows he won't survive if she's not found alive. Will his instincts allow him to find the woman he's come to love in time, or will he lose another to the marsh's embrace? Are the fates that cruel, or will God's grace give him another chance?
Find out in Leather and Grace, a tale of BDSM, murder, suspense, love, hope, lust and exploration, from the pen of USA Today bestselling author Maggie Ryan.

Daddy Takes the Reins by Kelly Dawson

Daddy Takes the Reins  -  by Kelly Dawson

When she lands a job as an apprentice jockey at a racing stable, Bianca is determined not to let her Tourette’s Syndrome interfere with her dream career, and she does her best to conceal her occasional tics from her ridiculously handsome new boss. But Clay Lewis is not an easy man to fool. He soon discovers her secret, and when he casually mentions that she ought to be spanked for her deception it sets Bianca’s heart racing like nothing ever has before.

Her crush on Clay grows stronger by the day, but while she strives to impress him at work Bianca struggles to deal with tragic circumstances in her own life. With her younger sister—and lifelong best friend—incapacitated by terminal cancer and becoming more dependent on her by the day, she finds herself pushing herself to the point of skipping meals and going without sleep.

Clay can see the toll that stress is taking on Bianca, and when she collapses from exhaustion at the stable he knows it is time for him to step in, but not as a boss or as a boyfriend. What she needs is a loving daddy who will both comfort her when she is sad and bare her bottom and spank her like a naughty little girl when she doesn’t take care of herself properly.

Bianca delights in the attention she receives from Clay, and when he takes her in his arms and claims her as his own it brings her more pleasure than she would have ever thought possible, but she cannot help wondering if he will stay by her side even when her tics are at their worst. Can she truly trust Clay enough to surrender her heart to him and let her daddy take the reins?

Publisher’s Note: Daddy Takes the Reins is an erotic romance novel that includes spankings, sexual scenes, age play, and more. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.

She squirmed as Clay fucked her with his fingers, bringing her to the very edge of orgasm. She arched her back and lifted her pelvis off the bed. A sharp slap on her pussy brought her back down to earth.

“Be still,” he ordered. Another slap, even harder, followed, then he pushed his fingers back inside her, her flesh stinging as she stretched to accommodate his thick fingers. Once again, he fucked her to the very brink of climaxing, then withdrew his fingers and slapped her pussy hard again, to halt it.

“Please Clay,” she begged him. “Please let me come. This is torture.”

“No coming,” he told her. “You were a very naughty girl. Naughty girls must be punished,” he scolded her. Then he smiled. “But good girls, girls who wait for permission to orgasm, they get rewarded.” Leaning down, he licked her wet mound, probing at her with his tongue, devouring her.

“Mmmmmm, you taste good,” he told her, his mouth shiny with her juices. He flicked his tongue around deep inside her, then sucked gently on her protruding clit, nibbling her softly. She arched her back, her whole body tense, as the aching deep in her pelvis flowed through her body. Her breasts were hot and heavy, her nipples puckered, as he reached a hand up to stroke her there, while keeping his mouth where it was.

 Author Bio: 

Kelly Dawson loves anything to do with horses, rodeos and cowboys, and loves to get lost in a good book - preferably one containing spanking!
Daddy Takes the Reins is particularly close to Kelly’s heart because, like Bianca, Kelly has Tourette’s Syndrome. The experiences Bianca goes through due to her Tourette’s are similar in many ways to what Kelly has gone through herself.
A life-long closet-spanko, Kelly started writing spanking stories on every spare scrap of paper in the house as a child. So when she discovered the internet and spanking romance along with it, she was most excited. But it took her a good decade of devouring these stories before she got up the courage to submit her own. And now, here she is, 6 books later, with a plethora of ideas still to write!
She lives literally at the bottom of the world in the South Island of New Zealand, with her husband, four kids, a dog and a cat.

The latest from Maggie Ryan - Leather & Grace is now available!

Dear Readers,
Thank you so much for your continued support and encouragement. It is you who gave me the courage to attempt writing my first, darker suspense book. I'm pleased and excited to bring you my latest book,Leather and Grace.

Leather and Grace 
by Maggie Ryan

A native of New Orleans, Quentin Doucet loves three things with a passion: working with leather to create items that bring both pain and pleasure when shared with a willing partner; riding his vintage Indian motorcycle, and women who find their joy in the act of submission. The Big Easy seemed the perfect city in which to build a club offering a safe place to indulge in more than collecting Madri Gras beads, listening to jazz, eating Cajun food and cooling the spice by downing hurricanes served in tall glasses.

Quentin and his partner Brody renovate a home near the French Quarter. From the moment they opened the doors, Plaisir, is an instant success. The owners are very careful about vetting not only their employees but their clients. The waiting list for membership is long and life is good-until the day Beth disappears. Unable to deal with the guilt of not keeping her safe, Quentin disappears into the swamps, pushing away the very people who want to help him through his grief until circumstances force him to return to New Orleans. Realizing there is no way to go forward until he revisits the past, Quentin is determined to bring the person who took Beth from the world to justice.

Grace Hensley feels an instant attraction to Quentin the moment she meets him. A gifted artist, her paintings depict intense emotions: hope, love, joy. Her soul aches to remove the pain, despair and anger within the depths of his steel grey eyes. His touch has her pulse racing and she knows that his painting would be one of passion. Before she can even think of putting brush to canvas, he blatantly states he isn't interested in a relationship unless she wants just a quickie.

 So what happens when she looks up on the first night of her class at the most popular club in town to discover her instructor is none other than the man who made her heart pound and her panties dampen the moment he stepped into the gallery? She refuses to be dissuaded from her need to solve the enigma that is Master Doucet. What happens when Quentin's determination to remain aloof erodes a bit more every moment he spends with Grace? Watching her joy in her journey of submission has the ice melting around his soul. But is he really being given another chance or is fate just waiting to destroy him-again? What happens when history repeats itself and Grace disappears right from under his eyes?

I hope you take the journey to New Orleans with me. The swamps hide a multitude of sins but will they also offer salvation? I look forward to hearing from you and hearing what you think.  It is on sale for the weekend and is available on KU on Amazon.
Happy Reading,
Maggie Ryan
