Brent: Truthfully? I’m pretty steamed. I can’t believe my wife pulled a stunt this like this!
Cara Bristol: Like what?
Brent: Running off. It’s our anniversary. It’s hard to surprise her, so when she hinted she wanted to take a luxury vacation for our anniversary, I pretended I had to work—and then I secretly booked the vacation she wanted. But then she got pissed and ran away! She left a casserole and a note on the fridge that said she was going to take the vacation without me! I had the trip booked, the tickets were in my briefcase, and our bags were packed and in the trunk of my car.
Cara Bristol: What are you going to do now?
Brent: I’m going after her, of course. But first I’m going to teach her a little lesson…
An excerpt from Wife on the Lam, Domestic Discipline
What the hell was Janelle wearing? His normally modest wife had paraded about in a tiny bra and butt floss! She didn’t own a suit like that. He knew because he’d packed both of them. They were in her bag in his tiny room with the garden view. She may not have noticed the men checking her out, but he did.
Hotter than a sunny, humid day in paradise, the scrap of nothing was more appropriate for a private show than a public one. He could envision spanking her in it.
He grinned. Now, that was an idea.
From behind a beach umbrella rental cabana, he watched her splash in the water. She squealed when a small wave crashed over her, and she popped up laughing, wiping her face. He loved her enjoyment of the moment, such a contrast to her forlorn expression in the restaurant where she’d had lunch. He’d almost caved and revealed himself then, but she needed to learn that she couldn’t run off half-cocked because she assumed he’d neglected her.
Didn’t she trust him? He’d never missed an anniversary.
He loved Janelle’s spontaneity. She brought sparkle to his life where otherwise it would have been bland and colorless. She inspired him, brought out his lighter side. He stroked the hair alongside his mouth. Look at the get-up she’d gotten him to wear.
On the flip side, she sometimes acted without considering the ramifications, and this latest stunt counted as the biggest. She so deserved a good, hard spanking.
He’d allow her a few minutes more before he hauled her out of the water. If she didn’t take care, her pretty, naked ass would be burned by more than the palm of his hand. He glanced at the sun, still high in the sky. She hadn’t applied any sunscreen that he’d noticed. Perhaps she’d put it on in the room, but maybe not.
Janelle stood and squeezed the water out of her hair, then sashayed to her lounger. Beaded nipples poked through the fabric of two tiny triangles that comprised the bikini top. A third tiny remnant pretended to cover her lady parts. The entire suit consisted of fabric scraps connected by strings. And on his forty-four-year-old wife and mother of his two college-aged children, it was sexy as all get-out. He glanced down at himself. Thank goodness for baggy shorts.
She reached her chaise and patted her face with her towel, turning her back to him, giving him a view of her pert, sexy ass. Yep, a spanking in that suit was definitely in order, and the fact that she wouldn’t be able to wear it in public afterwards counted as a bonus.
He expected her to shove her towel in her ginormous beach bag, but after drying herself, she flopped onto her stomach. Little fool! Didn’t she have any sense?
Brent dug his wallet from his back pocket. “How much are the beach umbrellas?” he asked the resort staff member manning the booth.
“They’re complimentary to guests of the Cabana Resort, sir.”
“Thank you.” Brent grabbed a pink one — the color her ass would be when he finished with her — slapped his Stetson on his head and tromped toward his wife.

Review by Laurel Lasky
This was an amazing story about a young woman diagnosed with hysterical blindness due to a past traumatic event. She has learned to be self sufficient with the help of her St. Bernard, Benji. A young man asked if she would allow him to lease some of her land for organic farming. A relationship develops.
The insights into her character are awesome and her young man shows growth and maturity. There are some unexpected twists and turns. I enjoyed this book and would recommend it for readers who enjoy romance with mild spanking–both erotic and punishment–and sweet sex.
Review by Rachel de Vine
I am a big fan of Ms Tilton’s writing, and this book did not disappoint. Set in the Sixties in New York, Zoe Brown is a shy and innocent country girl who moves to the city to stay with her ‘Tantie’ Anne-Marie, expecting to learn about sophisticated city ways. Led by Anne-Marie, Zoe learns ways far beyond her expectation.
She is introduced to Victor, a businessman, who wishes to take young Zoe in hand, and introduce her to a submissive lifestyle. He shows the shy young woman the ecstasy of being controlled and spanked by him, and is so taken with her that he delays his decision to leave the city and live in the countryside.
The erotic scenes are well up to the standard we have come to expect from this author – in other words, extremely HOT! The page fairly sizzles at times. It does not have a complicated plot, but is a very enjoyable story of a young woman’s sexual awakening and her introduction to a BDSM lifestyle, and is hard to put down once started. Highly recommended.
Review by Jane Henry
When hardened gunslinger Tucker Prescott is tasked with bringing law and order back to a town overrun by a gang of criminals, he quickly realizes that his biggest challenge won’t be the villainous McGill brothers. The one who will truly put him to the test is Dolly Baker, the beautiful, feisty twenty-two-year-old daughter of the man who hired him.
From the moment she barges into his cabin uninvited, Tucker knows Dolly is going to be trouble, and it isn’t long before she tests his patience one time too many and earns herself a sound spanking. The embarrassing chastisement gets her attention, but it will take quite a bit more than a few smacks on the bottom to teach her obedience, and the more he sees of Dolly, the more Tucker is forced to admit that he would love to be the man to properly tame her.
Tucker didn’t come to Spring Junction to keep a woman in line, however, he came to deal with the McGill brothers and their gang. He has a plan to do just that, but it will depend on his quick wits as much as his quick draw, and despite his best efforts Tucker can’t get Dolly off his mind. Can he bring the outlaws to justice and make her his bride before she drives him to distraction?
Tucker’s Justice is a sweet, sexy story with plenty of action, suspense, and a powerful sub-plot that draws the reader in.
Tucker Prescott is a man on a mission: to restore justice and peace to the little town of Spring Junction. He will not be swayed or distracted, and from the get-go he proves himself a no-nonsense, law-enforcing cowboy. Little does he know that the feisty, headstrong, but lovely Dolly Baker may prove to be a match for his highhanded ways.
When they first meet, Dolly is sassy and Tucker is not amused.
“You don’t know anything,” she snapped, staring at him, challenge in her bright blue eyes. “I’m tougher than I look!”
“How tough are you gonna feel when you’re over my knee getting’ a good spankin’? That’d be your first taste of Tucker’s Justice. You wanna give it a try?”
Dolly is outwardly affronted, but inwardly drawn to the stern cowboy, and as the story plays out, the attraction to one another grows.
The story revolves around the McGill brothers, and how they hold the town of Spring Junction hostage with their lawlessness and cruelty. Tucker will have none of it, and hatches an elaborate, (and fairly entertaining!) plan to bring down the gang. The town rallies in his favor, eager to be rid of the men who bring chaos and fear.
As his plan unfolds, however, there is one major distraction: Dolly. She will not sit idly by while danger threatens her town; nor will she hide her attraction to Tucker. Though he is attracted to her himself, he doesn’t put up with her sass for one minute – something she rather likes.
“Go back to the house. I swear if you stand in front of me one more minute, I’ll be throwin’ you on that heap of hay and rippin’ that dress off you.”
“In that case, I’m not moving from this spot,”she twinkled.
“Do I need to remind you what happens when you don’t do as you’re told?”
“It’ll be worth it,”she whispered, amazed how he’d suddenly sounded like a gentleman again. How could he be both rough and refined? Her tummy flipped. She absolutely loved it.
“Not if I use a hard stick, it won’t.”
“I don’t see any hard sticks in here,”she said airily, enjoying her sassy game.
“You might be right, but there’s always my gun belt. I’ll take out my pistol and bullets, fold it in half, and-”
“NO!”she exclaimed, her demeanor quickly changing. “You wouldn’t spank me with a belt, would you?”
“You don’t wanna test me,”he said sternly, then looking into her blue eyes, his face softened. “Maybe not this time, but if I think you deserved it, you bet I’d whip your ass with my belt…”
And he would. Even as the innocent bystander, I had no doubt he would!
The majority of this story focuses on Tucker’s methods of bringing down the lawless gang, while he falls hopelessly in love with Dolly. The story was funny, sweet, and sexy. If you like a real story with your spanking, an unabashed dominant hero and headstrong heroine, this one is for you!

Basic training is a killer—in more ways than one.
USA Today bestselling author Katherine Deane brings you a romantic suspense that will leave you gasping.
Twenty-four year old journalist Smyth McCullen is following the trail of a killer, right onto Fort Hancock Army training center. After two murders of young women just out of basic, both under the same drill sergeant, Smyth knows she must join the Army to unravel the truth.
Little does she know that Basic is dangerous in more ways than one. Protecting her battle buddy, working through sixteen hours of grueling training a day, and following a potential bad guy, is nothing compared to falling for a dominant, undercover drill sergeant.
Hunter Jones is undercover, looking into the potential murders under Drill Sergeant Cage’s direction. He’s been through many deployments, both public, and some not so public. He’s interrogated bad guys, fallen behind enemy lines, and is prepared in every way to act as a drill sergeant and save another potential victim. What he’s not prepared for is the sexy, young strawberry blonde who is definitely not eighteen.
As their attraction grows, they march one step closer to the end of the session, and imminent danger. Can Smyth find the killer in time? Can Hunter protect the next target, especially if it’s Smyth?
Lovers of steamy romance, hot military heroes and plucky heroines will adore Katherine Deane’s hot new romantic suspense.
Her Drill Sergeant Dom is intense with many twists and turns. Every time I thought I knew who the bad guy was, it twisted and changed. What a fast-paced suspense thriller! The action was so exciting my heart was pounding and I couldn’t put it down until it finished. The sex was hot, the spanking was erotic fun except when for discipline. The romance was sweet. I highly recommend this book!
