    0 out of 5

    Jeremy Spencer is just nineteen-years-old, and planning a long-awaited trip to the continent. He’s blindsided when his father informs him that he arranged his marriage years ago, and the wedding will take place in a week. Maybe the news would have gone over better if his bride wasn’t a thirteen-year-old girl.

    Anne Jones had a happy childhood until her Papa became ill. Afraid of leaving her alone he contacts his old friend, William Spencer, to see if the betrothal between their children is going to be honored. He needs to know that Anne will be cared for before he dies.

    The two will wed and then separate immediately after. They’ll be apart for more than five years. Anne will finish her education, and when Jeremy doesn’t return, make plans to go on with her life. She hopes she never sets eyes on Jeremy Spencer again; she just needs him to sign the annulment papers.

    Jeremy is angry when he leaves for his tour of the continent, and vows not to return until the marriage can be annulled. He spends the next five years doing what young men do, because he never expects his marriage to last.

    Jeremy finally returns with the intent to end his marriage, but one look at Anne makes him change his mind. He’ll have to work hard to get her to forgive him. Anne is smart, strong-willed, and not afraid to stand up for herself. She refuses to listen to Jeremy’s excuses or apologies, until he turns her over his knee and spanks her, and she agrees to give the marriage a chance.

    Can Anne forgive and the two find happiness together?

    James McCabe is done with his studies at Glasgow University and ready to return to Gleann. There’s only one problem; he can’t seem to forget about the cloaked lass he’s seen multiple times around the city. Everyone else thinks it’s a lad, but James knows better. He’s determined to meet her, and learn more about her before he leaves the city.

    Nellie O’Malley has grown up on her Da’s ship traveling the seas on a boat filled with all men. When her Da is unfairly arrested by the Sheriff of Glasgow, she begins roaming the city, and finds out that the sheriff will overlook most crimes for a bit of coin. She steps in many times, but always with the hood on her cloak pulled up so no one can see her.

    When James is arrested after a tavern brawl, he’s thrown into a cell with Liam O’Malley and Tomas. After the three of them talk, they decide to take matters into their own hands and expose the Sheriff of Glasgow to King James. When James finds out that Liam is looking for a husband for his daughter Nellie, he quickly volunteers. The only problem is getting Nellie to agree. Maybe turning her over his knee the first time they met wasn’t the best way to capture her heart, but James won’t give up, and the two get to know each other better as they travel to Aberdeen to see the King.

To get his hands on lands that her family owns, he informs her that in two days she’ll be joining him, first at the altar and then in his bed. She’s not sure what to do, but she knows she can’t marry the man that killed her family.
    Owen McCabe made a promise to free Emelia Scott from the Thompsons, and he intends to keep it. It takes him months of planning, but with the help of his friend, John, and Emelia’s maid, Kirstie, he’s finally able to locate her and help her escape.Nothing goes according to his plan, and Owen and Emelia are pursued, first across England and then Scotland, as Stephen Thompson tried to take back the woman he needs to complete his plan.
    Owen will do whatever it takes to keep Emelia safe, including marrying her at the anvil in Gretna Green. The two will get to know each other well as they travel to the Highlands, finding they have much in common. Emelia can’t wait to see her family again, and Owen is determined to make that happen. Being young and impulsive, she makes some bad decisions, leading to her being bent over her new husband’s knee.

    Although ‘The McCabe Books 1-6’ are stand-alone stories, I highly recommend reading book 5 “A Man of Honor” before reading book 6 “Her Brave Knight”. The stories in these two books complete one long tale. Many of the characters in this book have been introduced earlier in books 1-5.

    Melody:

    I never expected forever when I married Lucas all those years ago. It was a dare, encouraged by one too many vodka shots. It’s surprising neither of us annulled the marriage. But the truth is, I can’t be a wife, not to any man, not even to sweet, wonderful Lucas, thanks to the monsters of my past that still haunt me to this day.

    By some miracle, when I was desperate to save my brother, Lucas reappeared in my life. Lucas, who’d helped me so many times in the six months I’d shared his home as a sixteen-year-old foster kid. I had little choice but to take his offer – move to his Wyoming ranch and be his wife, for real this time. He doesn’t know the reason why I need the money, and it’s a secret I can’t tell.

    Lucas:

    Running into Melody in an Iowa bar seemed like fate. And when I heard she was in trouble, I had to help her, because I’ve always felt protective over her. In my heart, she’s always been mine.

    Now that she’s with me at Devil Creek Ranch, I find it impossible to ignore the feelings I’ve carried for her since I was seventeen. I want a wife, a partner in life as well as in my bed, but I know she is hiding something from me. Something I fear may drive us apart in the end.
