Book Eight in the Red Petticoat Series by Maddie Taylor is here!

Dear Readers,
 
I'm so excited that Claiming Coral is at long last making its Red Petticoat Saloon debut.  As soon as I was asked to participate, I knew the town of Culpepper Cove must have a big, brawny, handsome-as-sin blacksmith.  The image that immediately came to mind of my hero, was that of a bulked up Alexander Skarsgård. J Yes, even more cut than Tarzan.  J J   I don't often have a cover before writing my story, so I was thrilled when the covers came out first and doubly so that I could find a sexy couple that brought the image of my hero and heroine to life. 

I also wanted to veer from the norm and make my heroine a bit older and full of life experiences so that she knew what she wanted.  In Coral's case, she knew what she didn't want... more of the same.  So at twenty-nine, after three disastrous marriages she determines never to do that again.  That was until she met Bo, a persistent man who is as charming as he is persuasive.  Lucky her! 

You'll find some plot twists and turns in my story, spanking, of course, and a taste of BDSM that might surprise you.  You'll also find a few villains that you'll love to hate, some with redeeming values and others who get exactly as they deserve.  It was fun incorporating the other characters in town into my story and collaborating with the other authors to help those characters remain true in Claiming Coral as well.

All in all, I enjoyed the experience and am certain you will see it in the results.  Oh, and if Bo Magnusson doesn't become your newest, bestest, book boyfriend, I'll take a trip over Bo's knee as punishment.  LOL!
 
Enjoy!

Maddie

Claiming Coral by Maddie Taylor
 

Balking at pre-arranged marriage number four to a man older than her father, Carissa Fulwiler leaves New York City humiliated and alone, but determined to take her future into her own hands. She travels to California to begin a quiet life on the western frontier as a mail-order-bride to a young man of her own choosing. But fate has never been kind to her and she arrives in Culpepper Cove to find her would-be husband dead from a freak accident, leaving her with little money, no job, and no place to live. With few options, Carissa ends up as Coral, the newest gem at the Red Petticoat Saloon. 
 
Bo Magnusson left his troubled past behind long ago and traveled west. Now that he's established as a blacksmith who is also the owner of the town's busy livery stable, he's ready to settle down and begin a family. The down on her luck lovely redhead who arrives on the stage one day catches his eye and soon his heart. He can tell she is a lady and needs a man to protect her, especially when her dire straits force her to take a job dancing with lonely prospectors at the local saloon. This doesn't sit well with him and he pursues her only to be politely rejected. But Bo won't give up trying until she is wearing his ring, even if convincing her means that she's sporting a bright red bottom while he rekindles her wounded heart and keeps her safe. 
 
Their pasts come calling one day when her father's man arrives in town ready to drag Coral back to New York by whatever means possible. Tempers rise and secrets are revealed, but when the dust settles, will Bo at last claim the stubborn young woman's hand, or will the treachery and vindictiveness of those who are dead set against their love tear them apart?

Hooked by Maddie Taylor

 
Thirty-eight-year-old legal secretary Olivia Wright's clock is ticking and she's afraid she's running out of time to find Master Right. Several times she thought she'd found the Dom of her dreams, but instead of the prince she sought, he'd turned out to be a slimy toad. The last one had dumped her unexpectedly and nearly broken her. Now, after a long dry spell, she's ready to try again. She'd really like it to be with the man who'd caught her eye three years ago, but that man is her boss and despite her best efforts, and tightest skirts, he hasn't spared her an extra glance. Resigning herself to unrequited love, she attempts to move on, procuring an invitation to an exclusive BDSM club, hoping Club Decadence will be the answer.
 
Joseph Hooks isn't your typical Dom. He's NBA tall, with no police or military background to speak of, wears tweed suits, of all things, and on an occasion the dreaded bow tie. But behind his somewhat nerdy appearance is a handsome, green eyed, strict but sensual dominant who's also hell on wheels in a court of law. He's wealthy, powerful, successful, and enjoys popularity among the subs at his private club, at least those who don't flee from the swishing sound of polished rattan, but he's exhausted his search for his perfect submissive and concerned about coming up short. After a frustrating day of watching his gorgeous secretary's delectable bottom in an incredibly tight skirt, he heads to San Antonio to blow off steam and maybe make a connection.
 
He thinks she's terminally vanilla and straight- laced. She thinks he's not into her, or with the way he ignores her curves and tight skirts, possibly gay. Hopelessly oblivious to what has been staring them in the face for three long years, Joseph and Olivia continue their aimless search for love. Then, one night, as a storm brews outside another rages inside as their paths converge. Will Olivia finally get the Master Prince she deserves, or will her past prevent her from realizing her dream? Will her presence at the club be the sign that Joseph needs to wake up and at long last claim the woman he's yearned for all along?
 
Decadence Nights is a new spin off series of novellas by Maddie Taylor, featuring brand new characters as well as a host of secondary characters that you met and fell in love with in the Club Decadence series. These are their stories and their happily ever afters. We begin with Joseph and Olivia to get you Hooked.

Punishing Portia by Darling Adams

 
When well-known chef and restaurateur David Marone recognizes the food critic who just lambasted him in a review on the charity auction block, he bids an inordinate amount to keep her as his slave for three nights. He remembers the haughty foodie from culinary school seventeen years earlier, and relishes the idea of getting even with her for her mean-spirited review.
 
Portia Sands hopes the dark and gorgeous Chicago chef who won the bid for her at the Castle charity auction doesn't know her real identity as the food critic who tore him apart in a review the week before. She finds he hasn't changed since culinary school - still arrogant, over-confident and domineering. Unfortunately, he has the same effect on her now as he did then: reducing her to a trembling mass of jello.
 
When he pushes her to her limits, placing her in a cage like a pet, she discovers he knows who she is, and means to exact revenge. She considers calling the Castle safeword to end their time together, but some part of her won't allow it. Somehow she must survive three nights as his slave and keep her heart in the process.

Realizing Her Dream by Maggie Ryan & Laurel Jane

 
When Casey Reeves loses her husband to an unexpected heart attack, she gives herself a new mantra: To live life as if it were an amazing adventure, as every single day matters. Unfortunately, one of the things on her bucket list looks far better on paper, and when Casey finds herself up in a plane, strapped to a tall, handsome man, about to undertake her very first parachute jump, she realizes that she'd do just about anything to be able to back out.
 
Paul Jackson has been a parachute instructor ever since he retired early, and has seen his fair share of terrified women, but when Casey hysterically promises to do anything he asks in return for being able to return to solid ground safely - even let him spank her - he's amused, and not a little intrigued. He's also more than willing to accept her bargain.
 
Casey finds herself taking a leap of faith - in more ways than one. The two begin their journey together, spending some time on a luxurious yacht, in a tropical rainforest and even in a ranch in outback Australia, as they work their way through her list.
 
What they discover is that life has a tendency not to follow carefully designed plans. With Paul beside her, Casey quickly learns that living every day to its fullest entails far more than she'd ever imagined. And by her side throughout the action, danger and laughter is a man who not only has no hesitation in reddening her bottom when she deserves it, but can send her soaring into ecstasy with a single look or a touch of his hand.
 
Finding a new love to equal - or even exceed - her old one was not even on Casey's bucket list but now that she has, can they make it work? Is Paul really the man of her dreams? Best-selling author Maggie Ryan and newcomer Laurel Jane have put their heads and their pens together to come up with this, an exciting tale of romance, lust, love, spanking and adventure. If the subject of domestic discipline or explicit erotica offends you, please do not read this book.

A Timeless Woman by Stevie MacFarlane

 
Despite her age, Marjorie Whitcomb is resigned to spinsterhood. One disastrous marriage has convinced her that the kind of man she wants does not exist. He is simply a figment of her imagination... and her fantasies.
 
Colton Mitchell has had Margie in his peripheral vision for two years. He always considered her 'quirky', with her vintage clothes and quiet manner. He never saw the real woman until he had to drive her home one night. From her vintage turquoise kitchen to her garter belt and stockings, he then realizes that she is a young woman with very old-fashioned ideas about love and marriage. And that's the very moment in which he decides that she isn't quirky, she is perfect!
 
But how close is Colton to Marjorie's idea of the perfect man?

Rosie's Resolutions by Maggie Ryan

 
'Don't chicken out' - those three little words are at the top of Rosa's list of resolutions. Sure, she's never before kept any of her past resolutions for even a week, but she is determined that this year it will be different. As soon as Master Marshall announced that a Charity Auction would be held to honor one of the Castle's founding Masters, Don, Rosa knew it was fate. As an employee of the Castle, that marvelous place where any and all dreams and fantasies can become reality, she knows that this is the time to pursue her dream. Time to remove her Nanny uniform and don the clothes she has been dreaming of wearing for as long as she can remember.
 
This New Year's Eve, she will stand on the stage and pray that someone will bid for her and want to be her Daddy. The moment the gavel falls, Rosa becomes Rosie - the Little girl who will spend the next few days discovering what it's like to be taken care of, to be cuddled, and loved... not only by a handsome, wonderful Daddy, but, to her immense surprise, by a beautiful, loving Mommy as well...
 
Will she discover that being Little isn't all fun and games? Will she admit when she's been naughty - remembering that breaking rules has painful consequences for her backside? Will she keep her resolutions long enough to find the answers she seeks? And even if she doesn't chicken out, will her heart be able to pay the price?

Sharing Silver by Tabitha Black

 
It's been six months since her vanilla marriage ended in divorce, and Sylvia is craving some fun and excitement - not to mention kink. So when her friend Rosa tells her about a slave auction being held at her workplace, the Castle, Sylvia throws caution to the wind and signs herself up to fly all the way to America to be sold off to the highest bidder under the nickname Silver. Gorgeous twin Castle Masters, Travis and Trevor, can have any girl they choose - and frequently do. The only downside to topping female guests, however, is the fact that there's never enough time to build trust. So when Trevor hears about the auction, he decides it's time to be selfish, and he and his brother set about looking for a plaything they can do whatever they want with - a girl with as few limits as possible.
 
When Silver and the twins meet, the chemistry is instantaneous and palpable. But all too soon, something more begins to develop between the three. What should have been a few days of physical excitement turns into an emotional roller coaster - not only for Silver, but for Travis and Trevor as well.
 
Overwhelmed by the events at the BDSM resort - and her feelings - Silver tries to get to grips with her past, as well as the fact that she's rapidly falling in love with the two biggest playboys in Ohio.
 
In turn, Travis and Trevor are smitten by the mysterious girl from Australia, but whenever they try to get closer emotionally, she clams up. Can the twins make her see what she means to them before it's too late, and Silver gets back on the plane home?

Bianka's Baby by Cerise Noble

 
Seeking to rid herself of lingering feelings for her ex and broaden her sexual horizons, Bianka decides to embark on a series of one-night stands. But when a condom breaks, everything changes.
 
The condom belongs to Pista, a hot, handsome bartender. He always wanted to have kids one day, though he was not actively seeking for their mother quite yet. When he finds out the woman from a one-night stand is pregnant, he feels that it's time to decide what to do. Walk away? Or make her his own?
 
But just convincing Bianka that he is willing and able to take her as his girl comes with a unique set of challenges. They have different relationship paradigms, for one thing, and for another, Bianka's trust level of men - any man - is at an all time low.
 
At least they do have some things in common; they both feel very intensely about spanking and sex, and both have at least a passing acquaintanceship with the practices, as well as the pitfalls, of the BDSM world.
 
Can this traditional young man from a traditional Hungarian family possibly take charge of a highly emotional young woman who is confused and unsure of herself due to an unexpected pregnancy, and make a successful life with her? Come along with Cerise Noble while she tells you what happens to Bianka's Baby.
