Lone Star Love Book Three
Will the marshal be able to save her life—and her freedom?
Elizabeth Matthews manages to escape her cruel husband and the clutches of the law, but they're both in hot pursuit. Struggling to survive on the run, she finds herself in the last place she wants to be, the marshal's office in the town of Porter, Texas, dragged there by an overzealous shopkeeper who accuses her of theft.
Marshal Grover Huntley can see that the destitute young woman draped in rags and trembling in front of his desk needs protection, and he feels the stirrings of compassion, as well as the desire to hold the frightened young lady in his arms. The more he questions her about her predicament, however, the more she lies, and he can’t do much to help if he doesn’t know what she's afraid of.
A spanking over his knee proves to her that he not only demands her honesty, but also that he cares enough to do more than send her on her way or throw the book at her. She tells him of her fears, but it's what she doesn't say that changes the course of their lives.
Will the marshal be able to help when he learns of her connection to an enemy of his past, and will Missy learn to trust him as he works to save her from the mounting troubles that threaten both her freedom and her life?

Excerpt & More
She shifted her weight to one foot and looked down. “I’ve told you most everything important already. My name is Beth Jones. I’m a poor woman with no kin except for my daughter. My husband was killed last year, and ever since I’ve been struggling to make it on my own.”
About half of that was true, and she hoped it would satisfy the marshal. It didn’t. Before Beth knew what was happening, she found herself stripped of the towel and lying naked across his hard thighs. She gasped when she understood his intent.
With one hand he held her body against his. His other hand smacked her bare bottom, her skin still soft and damp from the bath. The swat sent a resounding crack into the air, and the force of it took her breath away. She wasn’t able to recover her breath before he landed another. And another. He spanked her ten times before he stopped. She panted when she was finally able to breathe.
“What’s your name again, Missy? The truth this time.”
