A guest post from Amelia Smarts!

Today we're welcoming the amazingly talented Amelia Smarts to the blog to talk about The Submissive Suffragette, the latest release in her Lone Star Love series! Both of us are huge fans of Amelia's work, and you can read Jane's five-star review of the book here, but let's hear what Amelia has to say about it!

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?

Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit erotic and spanking scenes. If such material offends you, please do not purchase.

She pushed herself off his lap and stormed away. "I'm finished eating. I'd like to go to the convention now. Perhaps if you could finish your breakfast before sundown, we might hear a speech or two."
Carter laughed. "You're such a temperamental little thing. Come back here. You need a spanking."
Nalin pulled her dress over her head and glared at him. "And to be in my good favor, you need to believe in women's rights. Looks like neither of us is going to get what we need." She stomped back and stood with her back facing him, indicating with a wave of her hand that he was to button her dress for her. Carter laughed again.
"What's so funny?" she demanded.
"You, darlin'. I just told you to come to me for a spanking, and you presented yourself in front of me, hind-side first. I'm mighty pleased with your accidental obedience, little girl." He flipped her over his lap. He tossed up her skirts and planted firm swats over her drawers, sending her warmth without the sting. She forgot her outrage and found herself in a much more pleasant state of mind.
"You like your good girl spankings, don't you?" he asked, his hand coming down briskly and peppering her tender areas with licks that felt like the most amazing rough caresses.
"Yes," she admitted.
Carter stopped and rubbed her bottom, then gave her a pat.
"By the way, I do believe women should have rights, but men are natural leaders. Women are submissive, or so they should be."
"I'm not submissive," she said, trying to convince herself.
Carter laughed heartily and resumed the mild spanking. "You are, honey, though I know you are loathe to admit it. Surely you see the irony in what you just said while enjoying getting your little ass spanked."

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 Happy reading!
