A bright, adventurous young woman dreams of travelling to the Western frontier, but in the late 1800s, young women were expected to be neither bright nor adventurous. Despite the contentedness she sees in her mother, whom she knows is spanked by her father when need be, Mary Rose thinks she's looking for independence, and the opposite of what her parents have. But heroes come in strange packages out West, and she's not long there before a rough-seeming package finds reason to put her over his knee. Once she realizes he was right, she's faced with a strange compulsion for someone (and something) she thought she'd never want in her life...

I always love Carolyn Faulkners stories because they are filled with srong characters and lots of spankings. This is one of her better historical stories and the plot is good and the spankings are definitly not overly harsh. This is a great story for anyone even those not into spanking.

I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book. Mary Rose moved away from her parents to help her Uncle Shep run his business. Soon, she was running it on her own with the help of a saloon girl who brought in a little extra money. When trouble comes, it's in the form of outlaws and the leader wants Mary Rose. Carolyn Faulkner is a great writer and this book is proof. Not as harsh as some of her work, still a really good spanking romance. Enjoy.

Carolyn Faulkner writes another sexy story! I love this author, her writing style, and imagination. This story is about an independent minded young lady who finds herself as the sole owner of a saloon outside of a small western town. She hears outlaws are lurking around the area and I'm sure you'll never guess where they end up! The big, dominant, sexy outlaw claims the owner as his own. Non-consensual sex and discipline involved with background stories rather violent against women; only ever appropriate in fiction.

This is one of Carolyn Faulkner's light, frothy books, originally published a while ago. Set in the late 19th century, Mary Rose, a very 'proper' young woman, finds that she has inherited a small tavern and hotel in a wild corner of New Mexico. She had originally moved there to live with her Uncle and Aunt but when they both died, she found that the business had been left to her. Takings were poor and Mary Rose was tempted to move back East to live with her parents but independence appealed to her more than comfort so she decided to stay and see what she could do to make the place profitable. Before she has chance to do anything very much, the property is raided by a gang of thugs: three outlaws looking for somewhere to stay. The leader is the notorious villain 'El Diablo'. Soon Mary Rose begins to see a softer side to him but she is appalled to find that she is attracted to him. There is an exciting climax and a lovely HEA.

This review is for the latest version of the book, published 5/10/17 This is a cute love story with an interesting surprise. Mary Rose and El Diablo meet under difficult circumstances when he and two other bad guys take over her inn and bar. He protects her from the other two, and in doing so, they develop feelings for each other. How it all plays out is interesting and unexpected – but along the way there are plenty of spankings and a little sex. These were interesting characters in an unusual situation that made for a short but fast paced story.

Rafe and Mary Rose were an unlikely couple. Mary Rose was quickly taken in hand by Rafe for her own safety. Would she heed his warnings and discover his secrets along the road to her HEA? An interesting take on an outlaw and virginal business owner. I voluntarily read and reviewed this Advanced Reader Copy.

Yet another lusty spanking romance from Carolyn Faulkner set in the old wild west. This time we have a young virginal heroine who is trying to run a combination hotel and saloon on the outskirts of town on her own. She is isolated and vulnerable, and sure enough she gets visited by a trio of outlaws who take her and a friend prisoner/hostage. Rape and other violence appears imminent and unavoidable, when for some reason the leader of the trio decides to take her (Mary Rose) as his own and places her under his protection. This may save her from one of the more scary visitors, but it also places her squarely under his (Rafael’s) dominance and control, which he reinforces with an initial stern bare bottomed spanking. A great story expands from there, one that includes many spankings, some unexpected romance, some hot sex and more than a few interesting twists. This may not be the best book Carolyn has ever written, but it is still far better than most other authors of this genre. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.
