Overview

Caroline couldn't follow through with the mail order marriage she had agreed to, so she switched places with the woman next to her on the train. Anxious to get home, she had more reason to hurry when she received a wire relaying a family emergency.
Traveling with the Union Pacific across the mid- west was a long, hot trip and Caroline's temper flared at the man who took responsibility for the railroad. Her temper wasn't the only thing flaring - her bottom also felt the heat when Royce Ashby had had enough of her bad humor. A man's patience could only take him so far and it was quite obvious to him that Caroline was in need of a keeper. He knew he was up for the task.

“I have always loved to write, and daydream, of course. It just comes naturally to me. I love to read. I devour books. Sadly, I had a hard time finding the good books, the ones that had sexy, dominant men in them. The ones where the men weren't afraid to spank a girl if she deserved a few well earned swats. The books that had those scenes were very few and far between.

My books are romance- and they are fun and naughty but you won't find any full sex scenes. (Just enough teasers). However, there are plenty of spankings all the way through and tons of plot to keep you turning the pages.”

Clean Western Domestic Discipline with HEA This story picks up from where Caroline Lowe had changed her mind of going to marry Wade Malone as a mail order bride and talked Elizabeth "Liz" Castle into taking her place.  She exits the train and purchases a ticket back home. Caroline is setting having tea and misses her train heading back to Chicago.  She isn't the only one who misses their train, so does Royce Ashby.  It seems a young conductor on the train had misquoted the length of time the train would be at this location.  Caroline is extremely upset and become unreasonable about getting to the next town.  She feels the need to get home to her mother after receiving a telegram about her brother.  Her bratty attitude and determination to get home causes her to make many foolish and rather dangerous mistakes. This leads to Royce having to save her and he disciplines her too.  This is their story and how they fall in love, Royce is a domineering man who knows just how to handle Caroline and keep her in line. This can be read as a stand-alone but it I recommend reading The Mail Order Switch first.  This is a clean western domestic discipline story, with no sex highlighted.

This is the 2nd book of the series. Caroline is returning to her home in Chicago after persuading Elizabeth to take her place as a mail order bride. Caroline is a widow and discovered that she just couldn’t marry again without love. She meets Royce Ashby on the train home and the two immediately are attracted to one another though she refuses to admit it to herself – even after he spanks her! Returning home, she discovers her younger brother is missing and her mother and she discover that their finances are gone and the house and all its furnishings will be put up for auction. Royce has discovered that he is in love with the feisty young widow and tells her they will be married. This is a sweet, romantic love story with some spicy spanking scenes. If you like an easy, romantic read, you’ll love this one.

Timing is everything... This is a story set in the Old West circa 1800's during the time of Mail Order Brides. Caroline decides she wants to back out of her agreement and switches her bridal order onto another woman. It is on her way back to her home when she meets Royce Ashby. This book is a sequel to "The Mail Order Switch" and, at times I found it a bit difficult to keep up. I might have enjoyed the book a little more if I had read the first one. The characters of Caroline and Royce were believable enough but Caroline was high handed and did some idiotic things which I felt were out of character for someone who supposedly took care of her family members. She endured several corrective spankings. There were sexual scenes but no heat at all. I didn't sense any real hot romance.

This is wonderful story by Patty Devlin. It is set in the west during the 1800’s. Caroline was going to be a mail order bride, but she changed her mind and switched with another young woman (Elizabeth from The Mail Order Switch). On her way back to Chicago, she meets Royce, who is an engineer on the train. Royce has an immediate attraction to Caroline and Caroline is sure he won’t want her because she is a widow. She couldn’t be more wrong! There are lots of spankings along the way. I loved this story, just like I like all Ms. Devlin’s stories.

A historical western I enjoyed this story. It was a sweet romance. Caroline was stubborn, determined and sassy. Royce liked her straight away but it took a bit longer for Caroline. I liked the banter that went on between Royce and Caroline even when she was getting herself into trouble with him. It was fun. Even though Royce didn't put up with any nonsense he was very loving and looked out for her safety.

I was reluctant to read a period piece but I was glad I did. This book was thoroughly entertaining. It captures your interest from the start. Caroline is a feisty heroine who demands attention even if it’s the kind that requires discipline to correct her misguided views on safety and such. When she meets Royce she’s met her match. Although she is in need of a husband she allows another to accept her mail order bride position and on the way home have a journey that leaves you wanting more. I haven’t read the first book but now I do! Great job with description of a loving DD relationship.

Once again I thrilled with a book written by Patty Devlin. The Chicagoan Switch is a sequel to Mail Order Switch. This book follows stubborn and lonely Caroline as she travels home after switching places with Liz in the first book. On the way home she meets Royce and the sparks fly. This book has plenty of action, adventure and stubbornness that Royce definitely knows how to handle.

The Chicagoan Switch is a short and sweet domestic discipline novel. Following the story of the Mail Order Switch we find Caroline on her way home after deciding she just couldn’t become a mail order bride. On the train she meets Royce, and the sparks fly instantly. She simply can’t seem to stop herself from antagonizing him, and in the process keeps finding herself in dangerous situations. But Royce isn’t going to let that fly, he knows just how to get her behaviour under control. What follows is a sweet story of a couple trying to figure out how they fit together. She is a widow, and he from a family of scandal, but just maybe they can be happy together. The characters are strong, with an independent, sassy woman and the strong, sometimes stern man who wants nothing more than to cherish and protect her. The discipline is loving, and fairly mild. My only complaint is that I wish it had been longer, but I am hopeful we will see more of these characters in the future.

SL Royce and Caroline were a cute couple.  Royce was a Union Pacific owner and Caroline came from the upper crust.   She had an attitude though that needed correction.  She would speak first and speak down to you before thinking.  Royce was not tolerant of her arrogant ways and showed her the error of her ways.  I wish we had seen more of Caroline’s  caring and other good traits, or had a real explanation as to why she was so prickly.  She was a brat and I didn't really care  that much for her from the beginning.  When she showed a softer side to herself after the kidnapping, it was a relief. There was a story to this book.  It had kidnapping, and threats, and a loss of fortune.  It flowed relatively well.  The characters got married quickly without really knowing each other that well. We didn't really see their character either except for his corrective behavior and his teasing, and her stubbornness and temper. Some of the chapters took a while to figure out what was happening.  I had no clue who Jacob was until chapter 4 or so, even though he was mentioned rather early as a memory a Caroline.  She didn't say what relation he was to her until well past the first mention. Overall the story flowed.  I think the change in chapters  were skips in time passing.  I wish the characters had been more developed and not as one sided, but it was a short read. The spankings were several.  There was no graphic sexual scenes, Overall it was a quick read.

This book was good, but not great. The first one was better

This book was a really nice sequel to Ms. Devlin's "Mail Order Switch"... You do not have to read the first book  to understand this book, but I have to say that reading the first book made me enjoy this book more, specially the last part of this book, which is also the part of both cute... I absolutely loved how Ms. Devlin finished both books off... This book was definitely a really fun read, which I will surely reread again in the near future...
