#NewRelease - The Submissive Suffragette - Amelia Smarts - #Western #spanking

Today, I have one of my favorite authors on my blog! Welcome back Miss Amelia Smarts, a true genius when it comes to weaving together a romantic story in a Western setting. 

I've already one-clicked mine - y'all should do the same. Amelia's new book, just released, is called

The Submissive Suffragette

and it's the first book in the 
Lone Star Love Series. 


About the Lone Star Love Series

My latest release is part of my Lone Star Love series with Blushing Books. While writing The Unbraiding of Anna Brown, about lonely widower Carter and sweet, plainspoken Anna who lights his way out of a dark depression, I came to understand the woman Carter was mourning. Carter's first wife, Nalin, was sharp, feisty, and different from Anna in just about every way. I felt that Nalin and Carter deserved their own story, which led me to write The Submissive Suffragette, Book One in the series. Missy Meets the Marshal (Book Three) is as much an action and adventure story as it is a spanking romance. In it you'll find villains, bounty hunters, murder, and a conscientious lawman who makes a life-altering choice to follow his heart instead of the law. And while these three books do make up a series, they can each be read and enjoyed as standalones. I hope you enjoy reading these books as much as I enjoyed writing them!

About The Submissive Suffragette

It’s the late 1800s and women are beginning to fight against the accepted roles of submissive housewife and mother. The suffragette movement is gaining ground. Nalin is one of these women. She is a devoted wife to Carter, and desperately longs for motherhood. But she is struggling to balance those desires with her belief that women need to be equal to men, and this starts, to her way of thinking, with the right to vote. She begins defying all the normal conventions – she wears pants instead of skirts to town, she cusses, she talks back to her husband. The consequences of her actions are that Carter takes a firm hand to her backside.

Carter, on the other hand, has always been quite happy with the status quo and is becoming more and more frustrated with Nalin’s constant defiance of all things considered lady-like. He has even come to believe that disciplining his recalcitrant wife is pointless. But her reaction to this declaration confuses them both.

Carter and Nalin both want children, but have so far suffered more than one devastating loss. They are both thrilled when Nalin again becomes pregnant. However, now she’s demanding to attend the suffragette convention in Dallas. Carter loves his wife, so despite his initial reservations, he agrees to see her safely to the convention and back again.

Their adventure takes a few twists and turns along the way. Will this couple safely and successfully navigate their way through these turbulent times and find the happily ever after they both deserve?

“Stop distracting us from our reading. We were just getting to ‘The Subjugation of Women’ by Mr. John Mill before you so rudely interrupted. Weren’t we, Anna?”

“Yes. She's right, Mr. Barnes,” the girl confirmed, asserting her loyalty to his wife.

Still frowning, Nalin continued to boss him. “Anna made a pie. It’s on the counter. Why don’t you busy yourself with eating it and leave us to our book learning.” She straightened her back and sat back down.

“Yes, ma’am!” He sauntered to the kitchen, then turned when he arrived at the counter. “Honey, what does ‘subjugation’ mean?”

Nalin let out an annoyed sigh. “It means to overpower and subdue. You should read occasionally. It’s a common word,” she informed him in a clipped, condescending tone.

Carter smirked. “I see. Thanks for explaining that to your ignorant husband, and in such a patient manner too.” He walked back to her.

In less time than it would have taken for her to read the essay’s opening sentence, Carter wrestled Nalin into a belly-down position on the couch. He clasped her wrists together behind her back in one of his hands and held a fistful of her hair in his other.

“Just so as I understand, does it mean something like this?” Carter asked her, his voice as sweet as honey.

The girls shrieked with laughter, while Nalin squirmed and protested furiously using her sharp tongue.

"Why you breachy, beef-headed scalawag! I'll give you a lacing that'll make you buzzard bait before you can sing 'skip to my Lou'. Let me loose this instant." 
Carter chuckled. “Tsk, tsk, little firecracker. That’s awfully gritty language for a lady in your current position. You might at least attempt to be biddable now.”

"Go boil your shirt," Nalin snapped, then laughed for some time without being able to stop. She finally cleared her throat and said as sternly as she could, 

“Carter, let me up. I mean it.”

“You must admit something first.”

“What?” she demanded.

“Admit you like subjugation at the hands of your husband.”

About Amelia Smarts
#1 Amazon Bestseller in Historical Erotica and Erotic Westerns!

I'm an author of romance novels featuring domestic discipline/spanking. Usually my stories involve a cowboy, and they always involve a man's firm hand connecting with a woman's naughty backside. It's important to me that I tell a good story in addition to portraying hot sex and discipline scenes. I write complex, flawed heroes and heroines who struggle and succeed in their journey to love and happiness.

I hold graduate and undergraduate degrees in creative writing and English, and I love the written word. If you'd like to talk books with me, feel free to drop me a note at amelia_smarts@yahoo.com. Happy reading!
