In the fourth book of the bestselling Hunter's Ridge series, we return to visit the people who have come together for the holidays. Lucy and Louisa continue to blossom under the stern but loving guidance of Lucas and Edward, every day being another step along the paths they have chosen.

But they are not the only ones making choices. Will Franny be able to set her fears of courtship aside and give Samuel Benedict a chance to win her heart? Or will that one impulsive, naughty decision she made ruin her chance of finding true love?

Meanwhile, not one but three men are vying to capture the heart of the vivacious youngest Lady Huntington. Ettie discovers that courtship is thrilling, yet she also learns that there is more than simply love to consider. She knows she needs to feel adored, but can any one of the three make her feel truly cherished?

What path do these two young women wish to take and who will take the journey at their sides? As shopping is done and gifts made by loving hands, the house is full of secrets. Will Lucy decide to share what she has learned? And what exactly is the secret that Louisa is holding close?

Days are filled with skating, sleigh rides and racing across the snow covered fields. Courting abounds, and preparations are made to attend the Grand Ball. Will love and trust be enough to hold the family together when a night of enchantment turns into a nightmare, threatening to tear the family apart?

Disclaimer: This book contains the spanking of adult women, explicit sexual scenes, and anal play. If any of these offend you, please do not purchase.

About the Author

Author for Blushing Books. I write both contemporary erotica and historical spanking romances. I enjoy writing about characters that enjoy the provocative D/S lifestyle of today’s times as well as taking a step back into the past to write stories that take place in the Victorian era with age-play as a theme.

I live in the great Lone Star state with my wonderful husband. I have always loved reading. Growing up in a family with four children, it was difficult finding a place to be alone. I was probably one of the squeakiest clean girls on the planet as I would spend hours in the tub so I could read without being bothered. It wasn’t long before I began to make up my own endings to the books I was reading. From there, it just seemed natural to begin writing my own stories.

I never try to restrict myself to any one genre because there are just too many delicious possibilities out there and inside my head. I admit to being somewhat of a romantic though as my stories always must have a great deal of love, passion, corporal discipline and, of course, great, mind-blowing sex. I want my readers to be able to see, hear, feel and know the characters that I’m creating as well as I do when I bring them to life and transfer their stories to paper. I want my women to be strong of character but also strong enough to know that submission given in love and trust to your partner does not make you weaker, it makes you far stronger. I want my men to be sexy, strong, demanding alpha males who know how to take what they want while acknowledging it is a gift they have been blessed with by the women that have chosen to submit to them. I want there to be no doubt that they truly would die for the other no matter how others might view their relationship.

I love the Hunters Ridge series and this book did not disappoint. I enjoyed the continuing story of Lucas and Lucy, Edward and Louisa. This book was also great because Lucas’ sisters were featured quite a bit as well. Watching the family celebrate Christmas together was very heartwarming. The story was very descriptive with wonderful plot and character development. It was at times sweet and funny but also had drama and danger. There was plenty of discipline dispensed with love and steamy scenes as well. If you enjoy age play I would highly recommend this book.

It was so much fun to be back to Hunter's Ridge and to see how the rest of the Christmas season plays out for the whole family. We see the love grow and expand between all the couples both established and new. And there are so many neat surprises as the family continues to grow and expand.

It was a delight to read this book and see how happy Louisa & Eduard, Lucy & Lucas are so happy with their child/bride. The twins really embraced the life style and are not ashamed of feeling happy even if they are different. Seeing wild Etiie and the quite Franny founding happiness was very sweet. And I love to see Emmie and Stefan again. I just feel like the family is growing and growing and could not wait for anything Maggie Ryan can deliver us. I recommend this book/series to everybody that loves a well written story with lots of age play and hot sex between a Papa and their little.

The 4th book in the Hunter's Ridge series is every bit as fantastic as all the others. This story is so heart warming and full of love and Christmas spirit, that it made me feel wonderful as I read it. I can't find the words to adequately express how well the characters are developed and how well the book is written. All I can say is that I was completely drawn into the story as though I was there. I can't wait to read more about Ettie and the other beloved characters in the next book. Maggie Ryan is a talented author and has a special gift for writing in the child bride genre. For any fan of child bride domestic discipline romance, all the books in The Women of Wintercrest, Hunter's Ridge, and Miss Summer's School series are a must read.

This book is the fourth in this series and it does not disappoint! The author weaves a wonderful Christmas story for the characters previously introduced in the series. In addition, the author entertains the reader with the love stories of Ettie and Franny. This book leaves you feeling upbeat at this time of year and offers a glimpse into the mindsets of women that live an age play lifestyle. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who has enjoyed the previous books in this series but would suggest that you read the previous three books in the series before reading this one.

Another grand reunion with beloved old friends and wonderful new ones. This book gives an update on Franny and Ettie. There is a lot of love, friendship, fun and mischief, lots of spanking and loving with some suspense. This is a marvelous series and hope there is more, hint, hint!

Book four of the Hunter's Ridge series and it was perfect! This book brings updates on the entire family and what a joy it is to visit with them all again! I adored everything about it. If you haven't read this series, why not? You just don't know what you are missing, seriously! Here's hoping for book five!
