Will love and trust be enough to hold the family together when a night of enchantment turns into a nightmare, threatening to tear the family apart?
In the fourth book of the bestselling Hunter's Ridge series, we return to visit the people who have come together for the holidays. Lucy and Louisa continue to blossom under the stern but loving guidance of Lucas and Edward, every day being another step along the paths they have chosen.
But they are not the only ones making choices. Will Franny be able to set her fears of courtship aside and give Samuel Benedict a chance to win her heart? Or will that one impulsive, naughty decision she made ruin her chance of finding true love?
Meanwhile, not one but three men are vying to capture the heart of the vivacious youngest Lady Huntington. Ettie discovers that courtship is thrilling, yet she also learns that there is more than simply love to consider. She knows she needs to feel adored, but can any one of the three make her feel truly cherished?
What path do these two young women wish to take and who will take the journey at their sides?
As shopping is done and gifts made by loving hands, the house is full of secrets. Will Lucy decide to share what she has learned? And what exactly is the secret that Louisa is holding close?
Days are filled with skating, sleigh rides and racing across the snow covered fields. Courting abounds, and preparations are made to attend the Grand Ball. Will love and trust be enough to hold the family together when a night of enchantment turns into a nightmare, threatening to tear the family apart?

"Ohh," she whispered, her eyes fluttering open when she felt his hands gently turning her over and guiding her legs apart. Bending over her, he kissed her softly and had her gasping in pleasure as he licked a turgid nipple until she was squirming before drawing it into his mouth to suckle harder. After giving her other breast the same delicious attention, he slid his lips down her tummy, taking little nibbles along the way before he settled between her thighs. She moaned as his tongue slipped between the lips of her sex, opening them as he loved her. "Papa…"
"Shh, Lucy. Close your eyes and just feel." It was an instruction she could obey without question. Every stroke of his tongue, every caress of his lips had her sinking deeper into the pleasure. When the tip of his tongue began to lap softly across her clitty, circling the engorged bud, she moaned again, fingers curling into the fur. It was the softest touch and yet ignited every nerve ending in her body and when she came, it was to ride wave upon wave of blissful pleasure, her body quivering long after her husband had given her his final kiss. He picked her up, cradling her to his chest and placed a kiss on her forehead before tucking her into bed. Lucy wanted to thank him, wanted to love him as well, but before he joined her, she was sound asleep.
Lucy woke with a soft moan of pleasure. Opening her eyes, the light through the curtains told her it was morning even as she blushed at the sight of her husband kneeling between her legs, his lips wrapped around her right nipple, suckling gently. Her body clenched as he gave it a soft bite before lifting his head and meeting her eyes. He didn't speak but used the tip of his tongue to trace a circle around her other nipple, resulting in its tightening and another soft moan being drawn from her. When she felt his knee move, nudging her thigh, she spread her legs wider to accommodate him.
Author for Blushing Books. I write both contemporary erotica and historical spanking romances. I enjoy writing about characters that enjoy the provocative D/S lifestyle of today’s times as well as taking a step back into the past to write stories that take place in the Victorian era with age-play as a theme.
I live in the great Lone Star state with my wonderful husband. I have always loved reading. Growing up in a family with four children, it was difficult finding a place to be alone. I was probably one of the squeakiest clean girls on the planet as I would spend hours in the tub so I could read without being bothered. It wasn’t long before I began to make up my own endings to the books I was reading. From there, it just seemed natural to begin writing my own stories.
I never try to restrict myself to any one genre because there are just too many delicious possibilities out there and inside my head. I admit to being somewhat of a romantic though as my stories always must have a great deal of love, passion, corporal discipline and, of course, great, mind-blowing sex. I want my readers to be able to see, hear, feel and know the characters that I’m creating as well as I do when I bring them to life and transfer their stories to paper. I want my women to be strong of character but also strong enough to know that submission given in love and trust to your partner does not make you weaker, it makes you far stronger. I want my men to be sexy, strong, demanding alpha males who know how to take what they want while acknowledging it is a gift they have been blessed with by the women that have chosen to submit to them. I want there to be no doubt that they truly would die for the other no matter how others might view their relationship.
