After nineteen-year-old Winnie Freeman is forced to run away from home by the schemes of a murderer, she soon learns that Percival, Texas in 1885 is no easy place for a young woman to make it on her own. So when trail boss Adam Talbert takes an interest in her situation and offers her a job on a cattle drive, she gratefully accepts.

But when Adam questions her about her past and catches her in a lie, Winnie quickly discovers that he is not a man who will tolerate dishonesty. After taking her over his knee for a painful and humiliating bare-bottom spanking, he demands to hear the truth. To her surprise, the handsome cowboy is moved by her tale of woe, and he agrees to bring her on the drive despite the danger that may follow her.

Winnie begins learning the skills involved in cooking on the trail, and as her training under Adam’s strict eye progresses she soon finds that she can’t imagine a life that isn’t by his side. During the long, hard ride to Abilene, Winnie’s stubborn, feisty attitude earns her a sore bottom more than once, yet with each passing day Adam’s feelings for her grow stronger. But can he protect her from the man that sent her fleeing from her home in the first place?

Publisher’s Note: The Trail Boss and the Runaway is an erotic romance novel that contains sexual scenes and spankings, including domestic discipline in a historical setting. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.

I love the spanking domestic discipline subgenre of romance I think it is just so sweet. You have a little naughty with the spanking and the man in charge (we women still have our ways of getting what we want) with none of the messy bdsm clean up… You know. I have been reading loads of early American romances but one thing seems glaringly missing and that is people of color so when I found this unicorn I was thrilled.

Winnie Freeman the heroine was great, brave and just all around awesome. She put herself in situations that earned her some bare bottom spankings by the handsome strapping legend Adam Talbert. The two characters as individuals were great. But together even though they were a match made in heaven, they really were, I just felt I did not get to see much of the match being made. Yes I read about Winnie’s butt being burned but the two kind of talked about each other to other people. I felt like I did not get to see them actually work out their feeling with each other, until they were actually married and that is so not a spoiler. I mean this is a historical spanking romance, once sex has been had there is only once place for the book to go if the heroine is to remain respectable and Miss Winnie is respectable.

Lori Tyler weaved an action filled story and we get to see Adam the hero be the strong strapping man for his heroine. He is a legend being a Black man and a property owner.

I hope more authors join the diverse romance spanking genre, we just do not get many stories like this.

Note: I am not sure why this title has a warning label, not steamy XXX, the tamest. Read this for a story of two people who come together in the west, during a time when it is not easy being black. We see that struggle in Winnie’s life.

Review|Highness, Latrivia S. Nelson

So far Highness is not my fav read in The Lonely Heart Series. Most of the relationship conflict between Michael and Hope came from outside forces. They quickly fall for each other. I did of course expect external conflict, I mean we are talking about a rich titled white man falling for a black woman from the south with “crazy” in her family. I did enjoy the setting changes, we start in London, travel to south home of Wal-Mart and back to London, it made for a few laughs. But you read romance for the relationship and to be frank […]

Review|One Wild Ride, Shyla Colt (Multicultural)

Joey and Moose are fascinating characters. Joey is the cool chick, the good girl with secrets even she does not know she has. She fits into the lifestyle making no demands on Moose. It is all in the name of good fun, but that can only go on so long, especially when feelings start to get involved. Joey handles it like a grown woman though, if she were my friend I would have thrown my fist up in pride. She makes Moose doubt himself and what he wants, which is his freedom. Of course he is the man right, so […]

Blood Witch was a good one, took me a while to figure out who the bad guy was, have to say I liked that, it was a pleasant surprise (no spoilers I promise). Lola was an outcast but she was not all angsty about it, (thank you) because I am so over that life. She got knocked down by her Ex, got back up, suffered some losses got back up, met a hottie, suffered some self doubt because of tha hottie, got back up. Blood Witch is not all dark we have comic relief in the form of some tag […]

Minette is willing and desires to cater to all August needs but one dismal to many may be one too much. You ever read a book then fall into the series matrix…well […]
