Kelli O’Connor grew up on a ranch full of exasperating brothers, all with an overabundance of testosterone. She’s spent her whole adult life trying to avoid macho men, but she found no other man heated her blood like ultra-masculine Sheriff’s Deputy Parker Jamison, especially when he kissed.
Parker fell in love with his feisty woman the moment he caught her breaking the law. Kelli was great at her job as a legal assistant, but she took too many chances with her safety. Those risks ultimately exposed her secret to Parker and his brand of solution.
When her desire to help assault victims becomes dangerous and over-rides her sense of self-preservation, Parker decides it’s time to step in and teach his fiancée how to follow his rules. His first lesson will be to show her that submitting to him does not demean her as a woman and could only enhance her enjoyment of life both in and out of the bedroom.
DISCLAIMER: This book contains elements of power exchange, domestic discipline, and sexual scenes including anal play. If any of these offend you, please do not purchase this book.

She stomped out of the room and kicked around in the backyard for a bit before seeming to get the more radical of her emotions under control. She reappeared in the family room a quarter of an hour later.
“Liam, I need to borrow a vehicle, if not, maybe someone could take me back to town.”
Liam stopped talking, looked at her for a moment, and then looked at Parker who decided not to react to the request yet. He had brought her with him, but he knew without a doubt she was concerned about his response to the Ciarán event.
“Well, since Parker is here, and he brought you, it’d make more sense to ride back into town with him, don’t you think? Parker, is that all right with you?” Liam, obviously amused by the exchange, wanted to play it out, as it appeared Parker wanted to play it.
“Well, might work but I’ve been having some problems with the attitude I’m not sure I want to deal with today.” He then looked up to Kelli, lifting his eyebrow at her.
“I’m not asking you to take me anywhere, Parker Jamison.” That undisciplined woman turned to her sister in law, “Jocelyn, can you take me home?”
Before she could answer, Liam said, “No, she has things she needs to do and going into Elk Lodge is not one of them. Bailey and Padraig will be waking up shortly and looking for their momma.”
Jocelyn shook her head and said, “Kelli, if you didn’t already have a ride I would take you, but since you do, I would rather not have a leadership discussion with Liam today.”
“Yeah, I get it.” Turning to look at Parker, Kelli said caustically, “Well, I guess I have no option but to ride with you.”
“Baby, you have a choice to ride, and I have a choice to take you. If you ride in with me, expect a discussion on attitude.”
“Fine,” she yelled and then stomped off to get into his truck.
Parker turned to his soon to be brother and sister-in-law and shrugged. “Sorry, guys. I figure she’s embarrassed about her own behavior. When she’s embarrassed, she’s automatically angry. I’ve been working on her automatic responses, but sometimes when she is in a mood, like today, I want to end the problem with a one sided chat.”
“You have any idea why she’s feeling this moody?”
“Sorry, Jos, I don’t. She acts fine most of the time. In fact, she does so much I’m worried she is about to drop on some days. I have tried to leave her alone to work this out, but I’m about to end it.”
“Your engagement?” The shock was apparent on Liam’s face and in his voice.
Parker was equally shocked. “What? No, never, that woman is mine forever. She’s stuck with me. No, her attitude and moodiness are about to meet their Waterloo.”
About Alyssa Bailey
International best-selling author, Alyssa Bailey, is a dyed in the wool Texan living amongst the beauty of Southeast Alaska. She lives where the sky meets the mountains; the mountains meet the ocean, and the wildlife frolic on land, sea, and air. Humans, the ultimate interlopers, are wedged in where allowed and are properly thankful for the privilege.
Her first memory of books was when her mother read to her as a small child. She began writing as soon as she could put letters together to form words. She was writing fanfiction before fanfiction was a ‘thing.” Life has a way of taking the wheel sometimes and after twenty-years of back road adventures, Alyssa returned to writing and now has adventures of a new kind.
Alyssa is a firm believer in all things spanking. She loves writing about domestic discipline and consensual power exchanges between strong, intelligent women who are not afraid to make a stand and men confident enough to give his woman space, but Alpha enough to keep her safe, in spite of herself.
If she can throw a little mystery, humor, and suspense in her stories, it’s even better. Her characters predominately live in Regency England amongst lords and ladies, in the Contemporary Realm amongst men and women of the world, and of course, All Things COWBOY.
Contact her, she loves to chat, and as always, have a Spanko-licious Day!
