Description

Ellen's grandfather wants her to marry wealthy businessman, Hector Monroe - but Ellen does not share his enthusiasm. She values her independence, and besides, her priority is to trace her brother Andrew, who left home six years previously following a disagreement with their grandfather.

Enthused by her quest, Ellen sets out to find Andrew and soon hires the trustworthy Edward (Ted) Kent to assist her. Although Ted admires many of Ellen's capable qualities and becomes increasingly captivated by the pretty 18-year-old, he also finds her difficult and opinionated and the two of them soon clash. A battle of wills ensues, and Ellen earns herself a well deserved spanking from Ted when she ignores his advice and puts herself at risk. As their relationship develops, more bare bottomed spankings ensue, and Ellen becomes increasingly attracted to this dominant man who disciplines and cares for her. They share many exciting adventures and Ellen gets to demonstrate how capable she is handling a gun. But when Ted proposes marriage, she wavers ... for being married would mean giving up what she fiercely clings to - her independence.

Set in America towards the end of the 19th century, this 'clean' romance focuses on the domestic discipline relationship between the spirited Ellen and the man in her life, Ted Kent.

The irresistible meets the immoveable. Ellen is a headstrong young lady, heiress to a family fortune, anxious to trace her older brother missing for six years. She will go out West to search for him. She is beautiful, a good horsewoman who rides astride, knows how to shoot, and can skin and clean a rabbit. What man could resist?

Ted is just right for her, strong-willed, handy with his fists and with a gun, a force for good. He agrees to become her guide and protector during the search, taking his duties very seriously as Ellen quickly learns, for she will keep going off on her own into hostile territory. The resultant discipline, vividly described, at his hands is painful indeed but nature being what it is, only serves to draw them close. Will they, wont they tie the knot? Even a network of local brothels is utilised in the search, a novel source of enquiry to this reader but logical considering the needs of a young man, single, way out in the Wild West.

Happily, the level of tension is never allowed to drop and the surprise ending to Ellens adventures provides a satisfactory conclusion to this tale of early pioneering romance and makes for equally satisfying reading.

Susan Thomas has mastered the depiction of a strong, empowered heroine struggling to embrace her need for discipline. What I found particularly poignant were the other women Ellen meets on her journey who quietly acknowledge and support her as she learns to submit to Ted.
