My ranch, my rules, little girl
I am thrilled to share Shanna’s newest release today, Daddy Mine. I must admit that I have slacked on reading since I am more focused on my writing, but I know that reading is such a valuable and necessary tool for every writer to hone their craft. And, if the blurb, teasers and excerpts aren’t enough of an influence to get you to purchase your copy (which they were for me, I got mine), CHECK OUT THIS COVER!
Shana used social media and shared three covers to vote on. My vote counted, and it appears others shared my enthusiasm for this particular one.
Get to know our Daddy Dom Cowboy
A non-traditional tale of traditional love.
Wes has come to the gripping realization that he would rather be a lifelong bachelor than to settle for anything less than his heart’s true desire—the love of a strong woman who can be a good little girl in his arms. Having decided that his type of woman does not exist, he represses his need by spending his days working dawn to dusk on his family’s ranch.
When Garrett, his younger brother, who left the ranch for a lucrative career on Wall Street, comes home to visit, he has a new girlfriend in tow. Carrie has an innocence that Garrett’s women have never possessed. From her golden curls to her chocolate brown eyes, she is as sweet as they come. Wes is intrigued by her demeanor.
Wes discovers quickly that Carrie has a feisty side as well. When she demands to ride Mabel, his untamed horse, she doesn’t take Wes’ answer to heart. Wes threatens to take Carrie over his knee and her reply is only three little words, “Like a Daddy?” which turns Wes’ world upside down. When Carrie pushes Wes too far, the inevitable happens, and it unleashes a life-altering chain of events.
Will Wes be able to keep his feelings for Carrie to himself? Can Garrett stay true to Carrie, or will his wild ways return? Will the brothers be divided by unexpected circumstances? Will Carrie survive the ensuing turmoil? Or have their worlds indeed been turned upside down for good?
Publisher’s note: This sweet, messy love story is intended for adults only. There are some elements of mild age play language and discipline of an adult woman. If any of these themes offend you, please do not purchase.
“Did you sleep well?” Wes looked up from the pancake he was flipping. Before Carrie
could reply, he said, “What,” gesturing at her disdainfully with the metal spatula he held, “are you
Carrie did a little twirl. “They are called jeggings.”
“What is a jegging?”
She laughed. “It’s a denim legging. You know what leggings are, don’t you?”
He shook his head.
“Leggings are like tights.”
“Tights go under skirts.”
“But these aren’t tights, they are jeggings.”
“You just told me that jeggings are leggings, and leggings are tights, so those are in fact,
tights, and need a skirt over them.”
“No, you wear them by themselves. It’s called fashion.”
Wes moved from his place behind the kitchen counter and sidled up to Carrie. “I call them
immodest.” He traced the outline of her bottom with the tip of the spatula. “I can see everything,
which means so can everyone else.”
Carrie squirmed under Wes’ touch. “They’re cute.”
Wes took his hand and trailed it over her hip to her bottom. He squeezed hard. “When you
are my girl, there are certain things that are for my eyes only.”
Carrie gasped with pain, but she felt delighted at his possessiveness of her.
“You can peel these off, and go put on an outfit more becoming of a young lady who was
raised properly, or you can peel them off, and lay over my lap, and then go put on an outfit more
becoming of a young lady.”
