Romance with a smack

Home on the Range

When Amanda Wyld tumbles one hundred years through time, she lands in west Texas on the property of handsome, protective, Tom Thornton.

The year is 1883, and a range war rages as barbed wire divides open land into pieces. These illegal fences are forcing ranchers to cut the wire to get their livestock to water. Guns blaze and tempers fray as men and women fight for their homes and their land.

Tom does not need or want the responsibility for the young woman he rescues from the range, but they soon find themselves falling hard for each other. Her modern attitudes lead Amanda to put her health and safety in jeopardy, but Tom will teach his woman the dangers of his time and the importance of obedience – over his knee, if necessary. Can a twentieth century woman live, love, and thrive in a nineteenth century world?

Meeting John Wayne

When Marcie Wyld, doctor and woman of science, decides to slip through time to join her sister in Texas, 1888, she plans and prepares. She packs vaccinations, medications, and surgical supplies. She takes old-fashioned clothes and money.

She does not plan on meeting John Wayne, Texas Ranger, cowboy god. The man of her dreams. She is not prepared to lose her heart.

John Wayne admires Marcie’s intelligence and independent spirit. He hopes she will remain in his time. But life in the Old West is dangerous, especially for a woman alone, and he must keep her safe. It’s simple: follow his rules, or find herself over his knee.

Can a modern woman accept old-fashioned love and discipline? Will the call of operating rooms, delis, and sparkling ice lead her back to the future? Can John Wayne keep her safe and win her heart? Can he convince her to stay?

Publisher's Note: This romance contains elements of domestic discipline, and explicit love scenes.

Wyld Woman

Risk-taker and adventure-seeker, Ellen Wyld scoffs at local superstition. It is nonsense that her cousins disappeared during a meteor shower while camped at the river. To disprove such balderdash, Ellen camps at the dreaded spot during a night of heavenly fireworks.

But the legend proves true, and Ellen tumbles one-hundred years into the past and joins her cousins in Texas, 1890.

When Ellen falls for Skip Manning, the son of the family’s enemy, no one is pleased. But Ellen gets what Ellen wants and she wants Skip. This suits Skip just fine. He wants Ellen. He plans to reform his lovely Wyld Woman and teach her thoughtfulness, respect, and responsibility – over his knee if necessary.

Can headstrong, spoiled Ellen learn to live in a time when these qualities are not widely accepted in a woman? Will Skip ever tame this wild 20th century free spirit without dampening her lust for life – and for him?

Was his bride a mistake or a surprise?

Can an Irish rose bloom in the wicked Texas heat?

Will they sink, or will they swim?
