Overview

Choose one of the two men, or take the return ticket and head home. It wasn’t much of a choice. Celia had worked and studied so hard to have a school of her own. And she had known that they might be a little upset. She knew exactly what they had wanted. It was stated very clearly in the advertisement and she could probably read and write better than anyone one of them.

Jackson sure never planned to marry, and how could he when his name would be a disgrace to his bride? So why had he fought so hard to keep her from marrying the other man? He could have shrugged it off and gotten out of there, but he just couldn’t do it. The new school teacher needed someone who would stay on her tail and teach her a lesson or else she’d run right into danger.

But, he’d have to be honest with her and tell her about that no good scoundrel who had sired him. She at least had a right to know he was a bas—illegitimate, that the man who fathered him had left his mother alone to fend for herself. Then if Celia could handle that, well, they could work the rest out. Besides, there weren’t any other good choices and she simply couldn’t be without a husband.

Meet the Author

“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.”

    Celia tricked the school board into hiring her by pretending to be a man. Once she is found out she has to marry in order to full fill her wishes. The school board decides Jackson is just the man for her. He likes her well enough and agrees to marry her. It’s a huge transition for both of them to be married. Yet neither one can deny the strong chemistry between them. Jackson is a natural alpha male but he is kind, caring and very protective of his new bride. Jackson has no problem disciplining Celia with a good old fashioned spanking when she puts herself in danger or gets a little to sassy. This charming romance is full of love and adventure. Patty Devlin does a great job with this fun, sweet story. A great way to start of Sons of Johnny Hastings series.

    One of the books in the Sons of Johnny Hasting’s boxed set. When Cecilia arrives in Denver as the town’s new teacher, she instantly is in trouble. The school board had specifically requested a man. She is determined to remain even when the condition is that she marry the Marshall! Jackson agrees to wed her to provide her safety in the rowdy town. Though the marriage was to be in name only, Jackson is quick to take her across his knees to teach her discipline and the need to obey his rules about her personal safety. Both discover that they have similar backgrounds as both are illegitimate – both learning that the past doesn’t matter when there is someone you love to make a future with. Cecilia teaches her stubborn lawman to read and he teaches her the far more pleasurable lessons in their bed. This is an easy read with a good story line, wonderful characters living their lives in a rugged town from the our past. Blends easily with other books in the boxed set, Sons of Johnny Hastings.. If you like sweet, romantic stories with some good old-fashioned spankings thrown in, you’ll really enjoy this book.

    This, I believe, is the first book in this series, but I have read them all out of order! Trust me, it makes no difference. They are all winners!! Celia is a fantastic heroine! Strong-willed and impulsive, she really needs a little "Jackson" in her life!! He is a great alpha male. It fits right into his personality since he is also the Sheriff in town. The story is romantic and exciting, I especially liked Celia's teaching methods, and full of spankings! Great read!

    Patty Devlin is one of my favorite authors.
     Everything I have read by her has been excellent and
    The Lawman’s Lesson is no different. I love ambitious and
    stubborn Celia who just wants to opportunity to teach.
    You also can’t help but love Jackson who just wants to protect Celia.
     A great story about two people who don’t want to be married by
     somehow must make it work.

    Celia was a stubborn, independent girl unused to having anyone try and protect her and look after her. Jackson had decided with her
    reckless behaviour she needed protecting whether she wanted it or not. Though she was the teacher he had many lessons for her as
    well. Right from the beginning they were physically attracted to each other even though their wills clashed. It was fun to see their
    relationship develop over time. It was sweet and very romantic. Just like his brothers, even though he was stern and wouldn't put up with
    nonsense he was also very loving and caring. That sealed the deal for her. Though Jackson felt he should never get married because
    he was illegitimate when he finds out about her start in life he realises they were meant for each other, 'a likely pair'. There was danger
    and suspense as well. It was entertaining from start to finish. I loved it.

    I love this first book in the series! Celia has come to Denver

    I love this first book in the series! Celia has come to Denver to be a schoolteacher. She deliberately used her initials instead of her name when applying so that the school board thought they were hiring a man. When they realize she is a woman they decide that she must marry so that a man might look out for her and protect her. Marshall Jackson Owens steps up to marry her to protect her, but he really wants her as she is different from any woman that he knows. So, after a spanking because she slaps him, Celia agrees to marry him. I liked that Celia is an independent woman. There is a double standard in this story, but to be honest, life was a double standard then as well! Jackson and Celia get to know one another for several months before they consummate their marriage. Through those months, Celia gets quite a few spanking. The only drawback to this wonderful story is that it is so short. Only 84 pages. I am getting tired of buying novellas. I would willingly pay a little more for more meat to the story. 5 stars!

    This story wasn't quite as strong for me in the Sons series. There was too much jumping back and forth in time, and ahead to new scenes without transitions or paragraphs to tie up one scene first. The premise was really good - a school teacher forced to marry the sheriff, and I found Celia's character to be wholly engaging. She was tough, determined, and was very knowledgable about educating children - much more so than many teachers of that era. Jackson was a frustrating character for me. He treated Celia as if she couldn't take care of herself, and he criticized her teaching methods and ways of handling children, even though he had NO background in this area. I also felt it unfair for him to discipline Celia for leaving the house when not once, but twice, he left her with little to no notice. I was hoping Celia would stand up to him more than she did - she started out strong, but bent to his will much too quickly. Overall entertaining, but not as good as some of the others in this series.

    K. Tyler:

    Patty Devlin has yet to disappoint me. This is the story of a single woman in need of a job. She applies for a position that a male is expected to fill. She feels herself capable and proceeds with her plan of action. This plan brings her to the notice of Sheriff Jackson a true alpha male who fully embraces a DD lifestyle. This is a tale that weaves romance and discipline and wraps it in adventure. Truly entertaining!

    Another wonderful story from Patty Devlin as part of five different story's by
    five different authors with the same theme, Johnny Hastings Sons.
    Celia is a schoolteacher that must marry Sheriff Owens in order

    This has romance, adventure, suspense
    danger and spanking. This is a  terrific read.

    The Sheriff gives lessons to the Teacher across his knee
    Celia Whitman applied to Denver for the teaching position, but left out she was not a man, as the school had requested, instead sending her application as C. G. Whitman.  Denver is not a place for single women, and the school board decides to keep the job, she must marry, and they give her the choice of Hugh Farley a widower with 4 rambunctious boys or Sheriff Owens.  Well, Sheriff Owens does not give her a choice, and they are married at 4 that day.  Jackson is a man who believes in Domestic Discipline and Celia's bottom finds that out often.
