 Abigail never cried, except when she submitted to a Dom’s discipline. Tonight, she fled the club in tears. The drive back to her motel room seemed endless. Shuffling in her seat, she tried to ease the throbbing in her ass. And why the hell are all the traffic lights red?

Finally, she pulled into the parking lot. Tomorrow, she’d face the ninety-mile drive home, but for now she wallowed in her misery. She hadn’t even told Adam, her older brother, about the letter yet, but he’d go ballistic when he heard the terms of their great-aunt’s will. 

She’d booked a Skype call for Sunday, and she’d try to stay calm when she told him the conditions. He’d hate them, of course, but he could only inherit Montgomery Hall if they and the second cousin they hadn’t known existed all married within a year.

There were so many problems with that. First, although she loved her small-town life, the lack of local Doms she could trust with her need for submission was a problem. All things considered, there weren’t any single men she’d date, let alone wed. Adam couldn’t come home until Easter, which left him seven months to find a bride. He hadn’t dated seriously for years, not since something went wrong between him and Mandy at their graduation ball.

Finding a husband topped Abigail’s to-do list, closely followed by tracking down her mysterious cousin. The lawyers had promised to search for her, but if they failed, the hall would be sold to the highest bidder. Its cliff-top position and acres of land meant developers would flock to it like jackals.

Deciding she could only deal with one problem at a time, Abigail had arrived in Polka Springs City with a plan. Her first thought had been to join a dating website, but someone might see. Next, she’d planned to register with a dating agency, but to her way of thinking, it smacked of desperation. Of course, that was exactly what her Great-Aunt Edith’s will had made her.

Once Abigail had scurried into her motel room, she’d pulled out a pad and listed the things to make her desirable to a man. Damn it, I’m not sexy or stunning, and Adam says my fashion sense sucks. If she joined a dating agency far enough from Westhorpe Ridge, no one would ever know she’d been frantically trying to find a husband, she hoped. 

Only, it could take forever.

Even computer assisted, she might never meet a prospective partner. Having limited options was the pits, especially since everyone missed out if she failed to find a prospective bridegroom. She felt more trapped now than when Master Jay had tied her legs wide open in a frog position.
Her quickest way forward—advertise for a husband.

 Ashamed she’d stooped so low, she felt underhand and seedy as she sought the right words to ensure everyone’s future. Husband wanted read too stark. Well-paid job vacancy could mean anything. Finally, she decided on Two-year exclusive contract for the right man. Must be without ties or commitments. Initial retainer and outstanding remuneration paid once the contract ends.

She hoped it didn’t sound too sexist, but she couldn’t advertise for a woman, could she?

Abigail Montgomery, a small-town schoolteacher with zero self-confidence, dreams of the Dickensian Christmas her family never enjoyed. Each month she attends a masked BDSM club, but her next visit will be her last. If she doesn’t marry within the next year, her brother won’t inherit Montgomery Hall. Desperate, she advertises for a husband.

Jared Armstrong, a former Marine sharpshooter and occasional Dom, needs $125,000 to get his family out of a hole. His solution--to marry Abigail Montgomery for her money. His only regret is his wife won’t accept his spanking lifestyle.

Soon, Abigail dreams of making their marriage real, but she promised Jared a divorce two years after their wedding. Can they share some Christmas magic as their relationship faces extortion threats, a kidnapping, and an attempted murder? Or will Jared walk away and break her heart?


  1. A small town schoolteacher with kinky tastes an weird advertisement? I used to be a small town schoolteacher but I sure never knew anyone like that!

  2. Perhaps you did, Ed, but they must have kept their secrets too well.

  3. She definitely has a problem. The ad is interesting

  4. Kinky tastes in a small town could be a problem. I like the thought that goes into wording the advertisement.

  5. I am quite interested to find out how this relationship works. I definitely think there's a lot of truth there, aside from the kinky aspect (nothing wrong with it, but not my cup of tea necessarily) -- there are so many husbands and wives out there afraid to be their true selves in the bedroom, afraid they'll turn each other off once their desires are known. And if she thinks he's only doing this for her, rather than himself, that could poison the well, too...this sounds like a great read, even though it's not a genre I normally read. (Maybe I should start?)
