The years since Josh left to join the army have been hard on SueNell. He was her childhood crush, and she had always been sure she would be his wife one day. But with her parents lost to a tragic accident, SueNell was left on her own with a ranch to run and a younger brother to raise, and when another man asked for her hand she saw no choice but to accept. Then tragedy claimed his life as well, leaving her a widow at twenty-four.
Now Josh has returned at last and seems to believe he can waltz back into her life and start over where they left off. Though SueNell knows that a man like Josh would be great to have around—especially with trespassers prowling the ranch up to no good—she is far from ready to start taking orders from him. But when her stubborn defiance puts both the ranch and her own life in danger, Josh takes matters into his own hands and spanks her soundly.
Josh knows that it will take time to earn SueNell’s love, but he is not the kind of man to give up easily. One way or another, he’s determined to win back his girl, and if a firm hand applied to her pretty little bottom is what’s required, he’s more than ready to oblige.
Publisher’s Note: The Soldier and the Widow contains spankings of an adult woman, including domestic discipline in a historical setting. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.
