Anna wanted a job but was unprepared for the emotional labor she would endure when she convinced Carter to hire her to keep house and mind his small son after the death of his wife. She discovers that the gentle, teasing demeanor she'd witnessed from the cowboy previously has been buried along with his wife, forcing her to contend with the glowering, ill-tempered man who snaps at her and doesn't notice or appreciate her earnest efforts. She quietly suffers his apathy and impatience until a single snub pushes her to her breaking point, causing her to take drastic action to get his attention.

Carter didn't expect such behavior from this sweet, innocent girl. It startles him out of his stupor long enough to feel his palm itching to connect with her naughty backside. He finds himself slowly drawn out of his grief and depression thanks to the gutsy, but kind female presence in his life.

Anna discovers that the return of the cowboy's awareness and ability to care means he is on to her penchant for danger and recklessness, and he's not having it. She finds herself getting the bare-bottomed spanking of her life, and feels loved by a man for the first time. Then he abruptly ends her employment. Anna flees, devastated and confused, and Carter knows he must straighten her--and the situation--out before he can claim the infuriating and enchanting woman as his wife.

About the Author

I’m an avid reader and writer of spanking romance novels, usually involving a cowboy, always involving a firm hand and a scorched ass. If you were to peek inside my Kindle, you’d find plenty of spanking romances as well as books by John Steinbeck, Margaret Atwood, Gillian Flynn, and other authors from disparate genres. What all of my favorite stories share are complex characters who draw me into their struggles and successes. I’m drawn to reality TV for the same reason. I also enjoy horseback riding, short hikes, and long lectures. I live on the west coast of the U.S. with my musician husband, a sulcata tortoise, and two antisocial rabbits.

If you’d like to talk books with me or find out which of my pets wins in a race against the others, please connect with me via email, Facebook, and/or Twitter. Thanks for reading!

Excellent book, though I'm late in reviewing it! Actually read it some time ago, and it goes down in my keeper category. Romantic tale with very well developed characters. Loved Anna, who was a strong heroine, and loved her kindness. The DD adds to the story, wonderfully done. Looking forward to Ms. Smarts' next books!

This is the love story of Anna and Carter. Anna is an innocent young woman and Carter the widower left with a young son. The relationship has its share of ups, downs and of course, spankings. The story line and the characters are well developed and written. An enjoyable read.

This was a real page turner. Anna tried being sweet to Carter but he stayed withdrawn. One day Anna lost it and told him off which brought him out of his depression. With love and spanking things turned around and Carter realized how

I loved how the author Amelia helped create full characters by bringing into the story-line scenes from the past that helped to shape the depth and history behind the characters interactions. It really gave depth and perspective. In addition to some drama there was also a nice tense action scene as well that helped stir the pot. I have to admit the title of the story was very confusing and I kept trying to figure it out but it all made sense at the end of the story. I loved the moment when it all made sense. Very clever!!

Anna is a perfect ray of sunshine that chases away the dark depression Carter carries in his heart over the death of his late wife. He can’t seem to shake the misery until Anna’s playful nature brightens his life and home. Her devotion to him and his young son gives him reason to love again, but she is young and has some growing up to do. They both have lessons to learn in love and communication. I love the title. The author does a nice job weaving it into the story line.

I really enjoyed this western romance. Anna comes to reinstate Carter's ability to feel anything other than numb after his wife dies. Without actually trying, she makes Carter fall in love with her innocent ways and quit demeanor. Anna does manage to get into some scrapes but Carter is there to correct her.

I really enjoyed this love story. It is well written with an interesting plot. Anna is such a great character and she and Carter have good chemistry. I loved the slow burn as Anna slowly broke through Carter’s defenses. Anna was just what this broken family needed and her scenes with Carter’s son Paddy were so sweet. Good discipline scenes administered with love. Anna and Carter don’t always see eye to eye but eventually they do get their happy ending. I recommend this story.

This was a very sweet western romance. Carter had a tragedy in his life but Anna came, unexpectedly, to his rescue. Their romance blooms and it's lovely.

FROM GRIEF TO HEALING, TO LOVE I loved this sweet story that starts out with grief and trying just to deal with the deal of his wife. Carter only exists, mostly because of his son, Paddy. Seventeen-year-old Anne Brown, the neighbor’s daughter, come bringing eggs and offers to work taking care of the house, cooking and Paddy so Carter can return to his ranch work. Anne is a bit naive, outspoken and comes from a house where they talk and share and is so determined to pull Carter out of his stupor of grief, even to the point of intentionally doing things to draw his ire. The plot of this story kept me captivated and the pages turning, it takes place over several months time. The dialog is entertaining and at times you just want to knock the two heads together when they are vague in what they say and hurt the others feelings. The story has some very tense moments and also emotional issues. The spankings are reasonable, but at times confusing to Anne. Best of all, the story has a sweet happily ever after ending.

This is a well-written novella with two likable main characters and a good story of meeting, learning about one another, and ultimately falling in love. Both Anna and Carter are believable characters, and the story develops in a pleasant way – with some problems along the way – and with a believable resolution to the problems in the end. I look forward to other books by the same author.
