Heartfield Ranch: Communities of Discipline, Book Two by Blushing Books, Fiona Wilde

When undercover police officer Karen Patterson is taken in by the members of the Heartfield community, it�s the first step in what the local law enforcement hopes will be a successful investigation into the group they suspect of wrongdoing and abuse.

For Karen, having Heartfield leader Clay Sanders buy her act as a stranded motorist is the first step in what she hopes will be a career advancing assignment. She�s researched Heartfield thoroughly, and is more than eager to dig up whatever dirt she can find on a community that gives husbands the right to use corporal punishment on their wives. She�s also eager to rescue Ann Marie Fales, whose wealthy parents are convinced was brainwashed into joining the community. After all, what kind of community advocates wife-spanking? And what kind of woman would willingly live there?

As a newcomer, Karen plays along and agrees to submit to Clay�s authority for the duration of her stay. She�s sure the whole place will be busted up in short order, but when her cover is blown and her real agenda is revealed, Karen must not only face Heartfield�s old-fashioned disciplinary justice, but the conflicted feelings that arise when she realizes that the group�s lifestyle appeals to her in ways she never imagined.

Could all of what she was told by her employers � and by society � about Heartfield�s way of life be wrong? Can a take-charge woman find liberation through submission over the lap of a handsome commune leader? Can a man who built a community on the principles of male dominance handle a woman whose position of authority is at odds with her growing need to submit? And what will happen to Heartfield when the real agenda behind the investigation is revealed once and for all?

Fiona Wilde�s follow-up to �Old Fashioned Education� is the second book in the �Communities of Discipline� series, featuring communities where spanking and harsher forms of correction are a way of life.

Wonderful mystery, full of action and intrigue. I love that Karen is so understanding of the life in the community she is sent to under- cover. But there is so much happening that she is not even aware of, political intrigue. Can she uncover that evil before it reaps havoc on the loving community? I gladly give this book 5 stars, could not put it down.

I loved this story. Karen is a police officer sent to Heartfield Ranch to find  out if it's a cult where women are being abused. It turns out to be a wholesome farming community  in which spanking is permitted by the husband but it is consensual  and the woman are over 18. The spanking is mild and the storyline is excellent, well written and depth of characters and their thought and feelings are evident.

Karen is a cop and feels that she's doing an important job of finding out what is going on at the ranch.  She's a good cop and really keeps an open mind. But Clay seems to get to her ways she doesn't expect.  I like that while she begins to embrace all the ranch has to offer she can still remain a strong, competent woman.  We see that Clay while being the guy in charge he isn't above learning something new and adjusting the rules.

This is a great book!! The plot is detailed and offers quite a bit of suspense as well. I really enjoyed Karen's character and she certainly meets her match with Clay. Very well done!

I enjoyed this story. The story line was good, the characters well-developed and likable. We get to find out about others in the community not just Clay and Karen and how the community makes a living. It sometimes seems hard to make a community such as this believable in a contemporary setting but this story manages it as does book 1 'Old fashioned Education'.

FINDING LOVE AND HAPPINESS AT HEARTFIELD RANCH This is book two of a series called Communities of Discipline, but is a standalone book. It does not have any of the characters or location as book one. Featuring communities where spanking and harsher forms of correction are a way of life. The communities have set rules and regulations for all those who live there to follow where everyone must work together for the good of the commune. The men are heads of households and the women are productive members of the community along with the men. Everyone has talents and shares the workload of tending to animals, gardening, canning, making soap, spinning yarn, creating crafts and living healthily off the land. They even have a dentist and midwife, but when needed will go outside the commune for surgery or other health issues to hospitals. This story has mystery, suspense, a undercover cop, a crocked sheriff, a mother who dominates her household, strong men who love, protect and correct their women and women who feel loved, protected and yes, corrected. The story has many different scenes with various couples in correction and some sex scenes, including anal play.

This was a great book.  Sometimes I wonder if there are communities out there like these. Anyways, this is a story about a community that values the traditional way.  The parents of one of the women who recently joined re not happy she has shunned their way of life and found her own.  So, they convince the local sheriff, with contributions to his re-election fund, to investigate them.  They send in a sheriff by the name of Karen to go undercover.  While she is there, she discovers that the women are all there willingly and that they submit to punishment by their husbands.  Karen then goes through a personal discovery that this is something that she crave as well.  I really enjoyed the book. I would like a back story about Ann Marie and Sarah ad how they came to be there and why does Sarah dislike Ann Marie so much.  Maybe a future story or two?  I give this 5 stars!

A Thriller Worth Your Time Once again one of our favorite authors, Fiona Wide in her new novel has come through with a stark look centered round a lifestyle that many do not understand. At first glance a close knit private community on the outskirts of a rural small town which believes in spanking not only its children, but their wives as well sounds like not such a nice place to live. However, a closer look reveals that behind the atypical discipline which at first glance to the outside world looks like brainwashing and abuse for these women provides a comforting patriarchal structure best known as HOH, Head Of Household. Get ready for a real page turner that reads like an exciting slice of life drama into a time warp more resonant of the dominant male households of the nineteen fifties. Insert a pretty ambitious agent who infiltrates the gated community and quickly finds herself over her head and over the lap of her guardian and then husband. So, how does Karen aka Betty become a wife after lambasting the place? Well, you too can find out why Betty becomes a believer through love through her behind. Besides stern spankings there is some anal training, but only in the context of voluntary giving as a couple. Quite an exciting read that left me up and dying to finish Heartfield Ranch. This is the story about an ambitious woman named Karen who has chosen to forge her way in a male dominant field, that of law enforcement. With the idea of further her career Karen sets up a farce where she is a stranded helpless woman. The private community takes her in and Clay becomes her handler. While she was aware that women were physically punished, Karen had no idea the bottom punishments went well over the hard spankings and combined with extended time dealing with cumbersome butt plugs which are seated and worn. Clay is like John Wayne in his mannerism and handling of women and even though Karen/Betty can’t imagine this ‘real’ man taking care of her welfare and safety. Over the knee she learns going out in a tornado is not going to be tolerated. The spankings are firm and hurt as her bottom glows and their romance grows. Among the implements Karen is spanked with are a belt and a breadboard that really gets the tears flowing. However, she also realizes there are niceties and manners unheard of the modern world. Chivalry is the word of the day. That really is what makes the book by Fiona Wilde’s Heartfield Ranch, so good.

Karen Patterson is a no nonsense police officer who's first major case involves infiltrating Heartfield Ranch to find out if the women there are being abused.  Karen and her colleagues engineer a way into the Ranch by way of Heartfield leader Clay Sanders.  In order to stay at the Ranch Karen agrees that Clay will be the one to discipline her if there is a problem.  Needless to say problems arise, her cover is blown, and Karen's thoughts about the Ranch undergo a complete change as she investigates the situation.   This was a really well written book and I throughly enjoyed it.  The dialogue is witty, the characters are real and you root for them to succeed.  There is nothing in this story that is over the  top or too graphic.  It is also the second in a series from Fiona Wilde.  I will be getting the first book and look forward to the next.

4 stars.  Cute commune story.  This was a great book.  I loved the life that was so different from the world.  You got attached to the characters and wanted to see how things went.   Karen , a police officer, goes undercover to try to find something on the community that is subversive.   She falls in love with Clay and the community and does everything she can to help them.  They are  framed by the mother of one of the residents who wants her daughter back. The story was about a wholesome lifestyle.  There is submission by the women with anal play, and plugs,  and spankings.  The spankings were mostly hand spankings, nothing too severe.  There was a spanking with a bread board, switch, strap and crop.  But still they were well deserved and not graphically depicted. It has a happy ending, and I really cared about the characters.  There was one incident of pre-marital  sex , but again nothing too terribly graphic and it was a couple that was to be married in a few weeks.
