Jackson's Justice by Maddie Taylor

I have Maddie Taylor here today with Jackson's Justice, the (stand alone) follow up to Marshall's Law. 

The Blurb

Twenty-year-old Jenny Harper has been in love with Heath Jackson since the day she saw him leap from a galloping horse to save an old woman when she was eleven years old. Over the years, Jenny has watched the women swarm around Heath, but she has her heart set on him and she is not one to give up easily. One way or another, she will show Heath she is a grown woman, ready for a husband, not the child he remembers tagging along after his younger brother.

Unfortunately for Jenny, ever since he was left at the altar by a foolish girl who ran off to marry a wealthy old man, Heath Jackson has sworn off marriage, preferring instead the company of widows and saloon girls. And in any case, though he has secretly lusted after her for years, as far as Heath is concerned Jenny is too young, too much like family, and too eager to wed.

But when tragedy strikes, putting more on Jenny’s shoulders than she can bear, her only hope of saving her family home lies in marrying quickly. Can Heath sit back while other men vie for her affections? Can he bear to watch in silence as she chooses a weakling when she desperately needs a strong man like him, one who will keep her safe and give her the sound discipline she needs when her impulsive ways place her in danger? Or will he stand up and claim what should be his, even if it means risking his heart again?

Publisher’s Note: Jackson’s Justice is a largely stand-alone sequel to Marshal’s Law. It is a full-length erotic romance novel that contains sexual scenes and spankings, including domestic discipline in a historical setting. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.


“You had your pa wrapped around your little finger growing up, I’ll bet,” Heath murmured as his hands went to her waist and released the top button of her pants. “You’ll find I’m not so easily fooled.”
Taken aback, she stared at his face, which was now very determined. How had he known? While she attempted to make sense of what was happening, he had the last button undone and began tugging down her pants. Snapped out of her stupefaction, her hands went to his as she shook her head vehemently.
“Heath, you can’t.”
“You know than I can, Jenny. It behooves you to cooperate. Fight me on this and you’ll likely be jumping from the frying pan into the fire. You’re getting spanked.” He tugged and the denim slipped down an inch, but she yanked it back up.
His brows gathered in a fierce frown, but his voice remained steady. “Move your hands. These jeans are coming down so you feel every swat.”
“No, you don’t understand,” she whispered, thoroughly mortified.
He tilted his head, suddenly curious. “What don’t I understand, darlin’?”
She closed her eyes, having no other option but to admit her shame. “I’m not wearing any drawers underneath.”

Author bio:

An author of erotic romance, Maddie is a lifelong reader who became a romance junkie as a teen with her first romance novel, The Wolf and the Dove by Kathleen Woodiwiss. From then on, she was hooked, and gobbled up everything she could get her hands on, whether contemporary, historical, paranormal or sci-fi. If there was romance to be found between a strong alpha male, and a sassy, adventurous and oftimes defiant yet loving woman, Maddie was all over it. As an author, she stays true to those themes writing steamy erotic romance, with a side of kink, and adding elements of intrigue, danger and suspense to her plots. 

Maddie started writing as a hobby. Her stories stayed private while she raised a family and worked full time as a registered nurse. It wasn't until 2012 that she decided to take the plunge and submit her first book for publication: Captain My Captain. She went on to publish eleven novels the first year.

She's still juggling writing with her day job. You'll find her working at her laptop into the wee hours of the morning, or scribbling plot ideas into the notebook she always keeps handy, and working out the details of a scene while floating around in her pool with a lemon drop in hand. Don't be surprised if you see her pulling over on the side of the road searching frantically for pen and paper in order to capture an idea for a scene that popped into her mind, because as Maddie says, her best ideas always come when her hands are full or if there isn't a pen in a five-mile radius.
