Tess Matthews is here today with her new book - Cassidy’s Gentleman!
A gentlemen rancher, an outcast tough girl and a paddle in the desk drawer.
Texas in the 1880s was no place for a tenderfoot. Thornton Steele is a gentleman from the East, but he came to run a ranch, and he has the strength and determination to do so. He dreams of starting a new life, free of the strictures of his traditional Maryland family, and he is ready and willing to take on whatever barriers are put in his way. The lawless West of the time provides those barriers in plenty.
Cassidy Hart, a Texas native, shares that dream of starting her life over in another place, but she, by her own account, is no lady. Daughter of an unwed mother, she takes care of herself the best she can in the same little town where she was born, even though the wide-open sky is the only roof she can call her own. She is tough, because she has to be, but sensitive, because that’s the way her mother raised her before dying young.
The gentleman and the not-quite lady are thrown together by circumstance, and the attraction is instantaneous. Still, Cassidy cannot help but doubt the Easterner’s sincerity, and pushes back, even as she is drawn to his strength, charm, and good looks.
Thornton, being a man who knows what he wants, wastes no time attempting to prove his love and concern for Cassidy’s well being. Oftentimes, however, to Cassidy’s chagrin, he demonstrates that concern with his strict hand on her bare bottom.
That, of course, is not the end of the lesson, and Cassidy soon learns to look forward to the soft caresses and kisses that follow a session over the big man’s lap.
Cassidy’s Gentleman is a story of love and fun, intrigue and violence in the scarcely tamed West. It also is a true romance, with plenty of loving domestic discipline in the form of spanking.
Publisher’s Note: Cassidy’s Gentleman is a romance novel that contains descriptions of sex and of domestic discipline in the form of bare-bottom spanking and paddling. If such subject matter offends you, please do not read this book.
His gentleness removed her apprehension and she relaxed and returned his touch.
Cassidy glided her delicate hands over the hard muscles of his body lavishing sweet kisses on his smooth chest.
When Thorne possessed her lush lips in a kiss, Cassidy cupped her hands behind his head
to draw him closer, weaving her long fingers through his thick, black hair.
He broke away from her lips and began to kiss down the length of her slender neck to her
soft breast where he stayed a while teasing and delighting her. Then Thorne ventured down her
torso caressing and kissing along the way to the heart of her femininity. There his touch ignited
warm tingling sensations magnifying her ache of desire. Cassidy moaned deeply in response to
the fire of her arousal.
“Please, Thorne,” she begged. “Am I ready for you? Thorne, am I?
